Little Eva – The Locomotion (1962)

Everybody’s doin’ a brand-new dance, now
(Come on baby, do the Loco-motion)
I know you’ll get to like it if you give it a chance now
(Come on baby, do the Loco-motion)
My little baby sister can do it with me;
It’s easier than learning your A-B-C’s,
So come on, come on, do the Loco-motion with me.
You gotta swing your hips, now. Come on, baby.
Jump up. Jump back. Well, now, I think you’ve got the knack.
Now that you can do it, let’s make a chain, now.
(Come on baby, do the Loco-motion)
A chug-a chug-a motion like a railroad train, now.
(Come on baby, do the Loco-motion)
Do it nice and easy, now, don’t lose control:
A little bit of rhythm and a lot of soul.
So come on, come on, do the Loco-motion with me.
Move around the floor in a Loco-motion.
(Come on baby, do the Loco-motion)
Do it holding hands if you get the notion.
(Come on baby, do the Loco-motion)
There’s never been a dance that’s so easy to do.
It even makes you happy when you’re feeling blue,
So come on, come on, do the Loco-motion with me

Percy Sledge – When a Man Loves a Woman (1966)

When a man loves a woman
Can’t keep his mind on nothin’ else
He’ll trade the world
For the good things he’s found

If she’s bad, he can’t see it
She can do no wrong
Turn his back on his best friend
If he puts her down

When a man loves a woman
Spend his very last dime
Tryin’ to hold on to what he needs
He’d give up all his comforts
And sleep out in the rain
If she said that’s the way
It ought to be

Well this man loves a woman
I gave you everything I had
Tryin’ to hold on to your high class love
Baby, please don’t treat me bad

When a man loves a woman
Deep down in his soul
She can bring him such misery
If she plays him for a fool
He’s the last one to know
Lovin’ eyes can never see

When a man loves a woman
He can never do her wrong
He’d never want some other girl
Yes when a man loves a woman
I know exactly how he feels
‘Cause, baby, baby, baby
You’re my world
