ABIAH SINGS NINA

Black is the color of my true love's hair

Black is the color of my true love's hair
His face so soft and wondrous fair
The purest eyes
And the strongest hands
I love the ground on where he stands


Black is the color of my true love's hair
Of my true love's hair


Oh I love my lover
And well she knows
I love the ground on where she goes
If she on earth, no more I see
My life will quickly leave me

 

And still I hope
That the time will come
When she and I will be as one
When she and I will be as one
 

Black is the color of my true love's hair
Black is the color of my true love's hair

Tell me more and then some

 

I want more, more... and then some
Darling you know what I wanna hear
I want some more... and then some
Cause I love you only dear
 

I want some more... and then some
Of how you feel.. and then..
When you done told me
About a million times
How much you love me
And you're through
Start right back in again
 

 

I've made the same mistake
I know the awful ache..
Of a little heart that's been double crossed
The waiting's been so long, so long..
It's hard to be believing
I thought I'd missed my guess
I thought happiness for me was lost
 

 

I want more...
Some more,
Some more... and then some
You know…. how I love that stuff
Whisper from now on..
till Doomsday..
But I never No, no, no,no, hoo, hoo
I never...
No I never will get enough

Keeper of the flame

I'm the keeper of the flame...
My torch of love lights his name...
Ask no pity, beg my shame...
I'm the keeper of the flame..

 

Played with fire and I was burn
Gave a heart but I was spurn
All this time how I have yearned
Just to have my love return
 

Years…. have passed by
The spark still remains
True love can't die
It smoulders in flames
 

When the fire is burning out
And the angels call my name
Dying love will leave no doubt
That I'm the keeper of the flame
 

Years... have passed by
The spark still... remains
True love can't die
It smoulders in flame
 

When the fire is burning out...
And the angels call my name
Dying love will leave no doubt
That I'm the keeper of the flame
 

Dying love….
Will leave no doubt
Ahh haa haa
I’m the keeper of the flame

Don't Smoke In Bed

I left a note on the dresser
And my old wedding ring
With these few goodbye words
How can I sing?
Goodbye old sleepyhead
I'm packing you in
Like I said...
Take care of everything
I'm leaving my wedding ring

Don't look for me
I'll get a hand
Remember darling
Don't smoke in bed


Seeline Woman

Yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah
Alright yeah, alright
Seeline woman, she drink coffee
She drink tea... and then go home
Seeline woman
 

Seeline woman, dressed in green
Wears silk stockings with golden seams
Seeline woman
 

Seeline woman, dressed in red

 

Make a man.. lose... his head
See-line- woman
 

Seeline woman, black dress on
For a thousand dollars, she wail.. and she moan..
Seeline woman
 

Wiggle, wiggle, turn like a cat
Wink at a man and he wink back
Now... child.., seeline woman (triplet feel)
 

Empty his po...ckets and wreck his days
Make him love.. her
And she'll fly away, yeah yeah
Woah, woah, woah
 

Seeline woman, take it on out now
Empty his pockets and she wreck his days
And she make him love her
Then she sure fly away
 

She got a black dress on
For a thousand dollars
She wail and she moan

My Man's Gone Now

 

My man's….. gone now
Ain't... no use a listenin'....
For his tired... footsteps
Climbin' up.. the stairs..

Ahh, ahh (2x)
 

Old man... sorrow's...
Come to keep me company
Whisperin' beside me
When I say my prayers

Ahh, ahh
Inka body
 

Ain't that I mind... workin'
Workin' means travelers
Journeyin' togetha….
To the promised land
 

But old man sorrow
Mountin' all the way with me
Tellin' me that I'm old... now...
Since I... lose my man….
Since I... lose….. my man

Ahh ahh (2x)
Since I lose my man

Wild Is The Wind

Love me, love me, love me, say you do
Let me fly away with you
For my love... is like the wind
And wild is the wind

 

Give me more than one caress
Satisfy this hungriness
Let the wind... blow through your heart
For wild.. is the wind
 

You….. touch me
I hear the sound of mandolins
You….. kiss me
With your kiss my life begins
You're spring to me
All... things to me
Your life...itself
 

Like a leaf clings to a tree
Oh my darling, cling to me
For we're creatures of the wind
Wild is the wind
Wild... is the wind

You touch me
I hear the sound of mandolins
You kiss me
With your kiss my life begins
You're spring to me
All things to me
 

Don't you know you're life itself
Like a leaf clings to a tree
Oh my darling, cling to me
For we're creatures of the wind
And wild is the wind
So wild is the wind
Wild is the wind
Wild is the wind
Wild is the wind
