Treasure Island

Buddy Bee Anthony


Soul Train (prelude)


Please don't sell me Soul Train,
your express has stopped runnin

Please don't sell me Soul Train
how it used to come near right on time

Please don't sell me Soul Train
how you're all out funnin and a sunnin

and, please don't say to me
I'm what you seek but cannot find

Cause, I'm your Soul Train
Let me show you my Sleepin car

I'm your so-oul train
Best believe you've never been this far

I'm your so old soul train
Steamin up and down your track
I'm your soul train, baby
let me show you somethin
step on back

I said, please, don't sell me Soul Train,
how you gone so deep under cover.
Please, don't sell me Soul Train,
how you changed salty water into wine.
Please, don't sell me Soul Train,
how you're pinin for another.
Cause, I love how your woogie boogie's baby,
sendin them shivers up and down my spine.
Shakah, shakah,
soul train, sha bong, sha bong,
sha bang, sha bang, sha bang.
Soul train, shakah shakah soul

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
