WHITE SHOE WEATHER (Robert J. Purvis and William Elliott)


White Shoe Weather

White Shoe Weather


I'm going off of my head just like a sack of lead

And I stole around the corner from the scrap merchant's bed

And my belly's really aching 'cos I haven't been fed all day


[saxophone solo]


I'm in a smokeless zone but really feel on fire

I need a long cool drink of something I desire

I got my head in a mixer

Man, I really need a place to stay


Ooh, I need somebody to sing my song

Ooh, I need somebody to sing along


[saxophone solo]


Now when I feel my life is trying to pass me by

I'm getting black looks from neighbours giving me the eye

I'm gonna turn my music louder still

And really give them reason to cry


Ooh, I need somebody to sing my song

Ooh, I need somebody to sing along


[saxophone and electric guitar solos].

WHITE SHOE WEATHER (Robert J. Purvis and William Elliott)
[Live on WCMF-FM in Rochester, November 5, 1975]

White Shoe Weather

White Shoe Weather


I'm going off of my head just like a sack of lead

And I stole around the corner from the scrap merchant's bed

And my belly's really aching 'cos I haven't been fed all day


[kazoo solo]


I'm in a smokeless zone but really feel on fire

I need a short sharp blast of something I desire

I got my head in a mixer

Man, I really need a place to stay


Ooh, I need somebody to sing my song

Ooh, I need somebody to sing along, yeah


[kazoo solo]


Now when I feel my life is trying to pass me by

I'm getting black looks from neighbours giving me the eye

I'm gonna turn my music louder still

Really give them reason to cry


Ooh, I need somebody to sing my song

Ooh, I need somebody to sing along, yeah


[kazoo solo].
