Little gal, little girl, Lord, you know it's true,
Little gal, little girl, Lord, you know it's true,
I don't want to stop rockin' and rollin' with you.

Are you gonna let me stand alone ?
Are you gonna let me stand alone ?
Caught you this morning before your Daddy came home.

And I done more for you than your Daddy has ever done,
I done more for you than your Daddy has ever done,
Gave you my jelly roll and he ain't give you none.
Let's go, Eric.

Don't you ever go down, down on Curzon Street, it's bad.
Don't you ever go down, down on Curzon Street.
That's where old John flogs his daily meat.

Maybe sometime he say leave the little boy and the girl behind.
I got messed up round somewhere called Notting Hill Gate,
I lived there for a while, but I moved out and when I moved out I was in such a state,
I've never gone back there,

But I, I'm sure I done more for you than your Daddy has ever done, baby,
Made you learn your syllables.
Done more for you than your Daddy has ever done, all right, ha ha,
Gave you my jelly roll and he ain't give you none.
Stay on the move.

In the back street, in the back street I gave you my jelly roll,
Ah, I gave it to you, ha ha.
Remember when we were down in the, the alley
And I said the lights were out, baby this is it you know, ha ha ha,
All right, we got a good thing going.
You can leave now if you don't like what's happening.
You know we got a...a few things going, you know, ha ha,
It's a drag, ha ha, huh, that's what you call it.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
