(

) My life's kinda mellow since I got a taste of wild honey
You know she's got the sweetness of a honey bee Wild honey, she got it hard and stung me good, yes sirree With all the other stud bees buzzin' all around her hive She singled me out, single-handed took me alive Can you dig I'm gonna spend my life eatin' up her wild honey |

Sweeter, sweeter, sweeter, ah
Wild honey, oh let me tell you how she really got to my soul It ain't funny the way she makes me want to sing a little rock and roll There's nothing quite as sweet as a taste of wild honey I break my back workin' just to save me some money So I can spend my life with her sock it to me, wild honey

I Was Made To Love Her

<Stevie Wonder>
Capo:
I
C
D
E
Hey, hey, hey (Yes I was made to love her)
E
Am7
D7
I was born in Little Rock, had a childhood sweetheart
C
D
E
We were always hand in hand
E
Am7
D7
I wore high-top shoes and shirt-tails, Suzy was in pigtails
C
D
E
I knew I loved her even then
Don't you know my Papa disapproved, my Mama hoo-hoo'd But I told them time and time again Don't you know I was made to love her, built my world all around her Hey, hey, hey (Yes I was made to love her) She's been my inspiration, showed appreciation For the love I gave her through the years Like a sweet magnolia tree my love blossomed tenderly My life grows sweeter through the years I know that my baby loves me, my baby needs me That's why we made it through the tears I was made to love her, what has she ever done Hey, hey, hey (Yes I was made to love her) My little baby loves me, my baby needs me And I know I ain't goin' nowhere I was knee-high to a chimp and the love bug bit me And I have to be with her a thousand years If the mountain tumbles, if this whole world crumbles I know I'll still be standing there

No lyric over last line of verse
Do it right baby, oh-oh... A whole day away from your woman A separation from your girl can really mess your mind And can you dig this one thing Well it's lucky I'm working from nine to five I have to live with my doctors just to keep me alive Keep on tellin' a thing or two Do it right baby, oh-oh...

How She Boogalooed It

D
Oh, we were strangers in a really big city Got excited by the sound of a party
Em
Now my heart beat while the music was grooving
G
And if you wanted to, you couldn't keep from moving
Em
Look around, do you believe what you seeing?
A
B
The walls are moving, the ceiling's a-reeling!
E
Couples over in the corner romancing, oh The boys are here to do some outta sight dancing
C#m
Got a girl, giving me soul lessons
A
And now she's gonna be my possession
C#m
Aren't you glad we found our way in here?
A
D
Put another record up on the player
E
Hey there's a stoned fox dancing with the police Don't have to worry about disturbing the peace
C#m
Met a fine chick that really got to me
A
Good Lord, how she boogalooed to me
C#m
Oh my, how she boogalooed it to me
A
Come on, sock it, sock it to me
D
S-O-C-K I-T to me
