"Cold, Cold, Cold" as written by Mac Rebennack, Jessie Hill and Alvin Robinson....
Cold, cold, cold
Cold, cold, cold
Freezing, it was freezing in that hotel
I had no money, my special friend was gone
The TV set was busted so she went along
I called room, room service,
I'm down here on my knees
A peach or a pear, or a coconut please,
But they was cold
Well it's been a month since I seen my girl
Or a dime to make the call
'Cause it passed me up, or it passed me by,
Or I couldn't decide at all
And I'm mixed up, I'm so mixed up
Don't you know I'm lonely
And I wish the world would get off of my case
And get on one of its own

Cold, cold, cold
Cold, cold, cold
That woman was freezing, freezing cold
Well I tried everything to warm her up
Now I'm living in this cold hotel
'Cause she passed me, up or she passed me by,
Or I couldn't decide at all
Oh I'm mixed up, yes I'm mixed up
Don't you know I'm lonely
Of all the things I had to do
I had to fall in love
You know she's cold

Turn your clock back woman when you see me comin' round
My feet don't, feet don't even touch the ground
don't be cold, don't be cold
don't be cold, don't be cold

    arguably the greatest lyric ever.

    General CommentNot everyone can enjoy Little Feat...pretty much anyone without a soul. Lowell George is one of the greatest. Too close to the skin for some people, but he keeps it real.

    General CommentThere is minor error in the first stanza, seventh line...it should read:

    "My knees, for a peach, or a pear, or a coconut please"

    Another in the second stanza, first line...it should read:

    "It's been a month since I had a toke"

    or at least in most of the versions I've heard...
