As Long As I

As Long As I'm Moving

Ruth Brown

(Charles Calhoun, Atlantic 1059, 1955)

You're crazy 'bout lovin', I'm crazy 'bout love myself
You're crazy 'bout lovin', I'm crazy 'bout love myself
When I'm with you baby, can't think about nothin' else

I've seen so many men, it's like looking through a fine tooth comb
I've seen so many men, it's like looking through a fine tooth comb
But these young cats 'll make a good girl lose her home

[Chorus]
I wanna go north, east, south, west
Every which way, as long as I'm movin'
Long as I'm movin', long as I'm movin'
Long as I'm movin', long as I'm movin' baby, I don't care

You got big broad shoulders, build like a trailer truck
You got big broad shoulders, build like a trailer truck
Let me run with you daddy and maybe I'll change my luck
I gotta watch myself, these boys are gettin' out of hand
I gotta watch myself, these boys are gettin' out of hand
They get twelve years old, start acting like a natural man

[Chorus]
I wanna go north, east, south, west
Every which way, as long as I'm movin'
Long as I'm movin', long as I'm movin'
Long as I'm movin', long as I'm movin' baby, I don't care
Move, move, move, move!

Well it must be rat, because mink don't feel that way
Well it must be rat, because mink don't feel that way
Well don't you talk that talk, don't believe a thing you say

[Chorus]
I wanna go north, east, south, west
Every which way, as long as I'm movin'
Long as I'm movin', long as I'm movin'
Long as I'm movin', long as I'm movin' baby...
I don't care!
