The Big Show

Sitting here in the dark thinking Thinking, Listening to Johnnie Taylor Taking me back down that old Memory lane.. Singing “I believe in you” While the rain beats against my Window pane.. All the fun memories of my School days ring out loud & Clear.. While skating to Disco Lady Eating cotton candy and never Gain a pound.. Dancing close holding hands Moving across the floor.. Shake oh shake, shake all a Round.. Now here comes soul heaven He was having such a good Time.. Seeing all his buddies in this One night only shindig.. Line up to play their songs Johnnie Taylor said we need to Buy our tickets.. The tickets are running out mighty Fast... Hey, I love all those guys whom To many to call their names But, I'm not ready to buy that Ticket just yet! I know this concert will be jumping Standing around with Sam Cooke Singing "A Change Gonna Come" Even Marvin Gaye singing "Let's Get It On" So many I can’t mention.. Just think about "Lonely Teardops" Jackie Wilson dance to his own beat.. Johnnie say it raining, But everybody just stood there.. While King Curtis Blue "Played His Soul Serenade" Elvis Presley Singing "His Blue Suede Shoes" The Mighty Temptations singing "Ain't To Proud To Beg" He said the Bar-kays tuning their guitars While Z.Z Hill Singing "Down Home Blues" Oh so many I cannot mention.. Johnnie didn’t want to wake up Cause he was having such a good Time.. Amidst all those great super stars.. Oh, yes he was having such a good Time... Singing "Soul Heaven" He buy his ticket to this big one Night Show.. So he said he was having such a Good time.. With all his super star buddies "Singing In soul Heaven" I know that concert was jumping with With all those super stars singing In that one night only concert in soul Heaven.... You see Johnnie Taylor said he was havin Such a good time... And he decided to join his friends in the land They call soul Heaven.. For this one night big show...
