"Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa (Sad Song)" as written by and Steve Cropper Otis Redding....

I keep singing them sad, sad songs, y'all
Sad songs is all I know
I keep singing them sad, sad songs, y'all
Sad songs are all I know

It has a sweet melody tonight
Anybody can sing it any old time
What in your heart puts you in a groove
And when you sing this song
It'll make you're whole body move, it goes

Your turn
Our turn
Your turn, now

All my life I've been singing them sad songs
Trying to get my message to you
But this is the only song, y'all, I can sing
And when I get to singing my message to you, it goes

Your turn, now

It's a lovely song, y'all
Sweet music, honey
It's just a line, oh but
It tells a story, baby
You got to get the message
A stone message, honey
A lovely line, baby
I'm worried in mind, watch me

Your turn
Everybody's turn, everybody
Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa, one more time
Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa, worried alive, y'all

    General CommentLyric help: It's not "I'll turn" lol... He's saying "Our turn".

    I love this song. It's so sad. I like how he uses "Fa," it's almost pointless but that's all he come up with in his sadness.

    Otis Redding was a genius. And the music is outstanding and just gets the body rocking.
