James Avery: Music

TREAT ME RIGHT

(James Avery)

On the day of recording this song I actually said to the session players that I was shooting for a Chris Isaac feel on this one. As it turns out the recording engineer (Paul Baker) recorded the music for the Chris Isaac show. Needless to say I was in good hands. (Funny how things work sometimes) James
TREAT ME RIGHT

Listen boy, I’ve got to say to you
A lovin’ man is a lovesick fool
In the light of day, hear what I say
She’ll take your heart and run away

‘Cause she can be anything that she wants to be
I tell you this my friend
You’re going to face some sorrow, oh a bitter end
Yeh, life unfolds, I’ve been so told
Though I’m out most every night
For the wrong kind of woman who’ll treat me right

Oh, I’m taken, then foresaken
Heaven knows I live a lie
Yeh, I’m aching while my hearts breaking
Still I’m left to wonder why

So listen boy, that’s why I say to you
A loving man is a lovesick fool
In the light of day, hear what I say
She’ll take your heart, then run away

Cause she can be anything that she wants to be
I tell you this my friend
You’re going to face some sorrow, oh a bitter end
Yeh, life unfolds, I’ve been so told
Though I’m out most every night
For the wrong kind of woman who’ll treat me right
Treat me right… (fade)
