"You're Gonna Lose Your Gal" as written by James V. Monaco and Joe Young....
Flirtin’ with the devil
You’ll get in the deep
What a fine dis-level
In her tales, you’ll weep

You’re gonna lose your gal
You’re gonna lose your pal
Actin’ like a two time lover
You’ll get kisses undercover
You’ll wake up and soon discover
Your gonna lose your gal

You’re gonna fret away
You finally get that way
How can you be so conceited
Take a heart and then mislead it
You can’t have your cake and eat it
You’re gonna your gal

And when she’s gone
She won’t come back
They don’t come back
Won’t come back once they’re gone

You’re gonna be surprised
You never realized
Someone else can treat her nicer
Someone else can shoes and rice her
Someone else will paradise her
You’re gonna lose your gal

And when she’s gone
She won’t come back
They don’t come back
Won’t come back
Once they’re gone

You’re gonna be surprised
You never realized
Someone else can treat her nicer
Someone else can shoes and rice her
Someone else will paradise her
You’re gonna lose your gal

    General CommentI had such trouble trying to figure out what Redbone sings after "Flirtin' with the devil" in the first few lines of this great song. If anyone has a better ear, feel free to make suggestions.

    Redbone, not necessarily known to the masses, seems to be a jewel to savor for a few of us. Love this album!
