1974 - Beaded Dreams through Turquoise Eyes

The first album without big success

The sixth "Redbone" album is a much more commercial one. Unfortunatly none of these songs became a hit, even if "Suzi Girl" deserved it. However some beautiful songs, typical Redbone ones like " Cookin' With d'Redbone".

Lyrics

One More Time

German cover of One More Time single

At the threat of his life
He can't get a little independence

Say your sister's got a babe
Her man has gone away
She cries like the Dickens night 'till morn'

Got no bread to pay the landlord
Got a song that I can sing to clear my head
One more time for your trouble
And you say the hell with it and keep repeating

One more time for his wife,
one more time for his life
One more time for all his independence
One more time for the rent,
one more time for the man
One more time for sister and her baby

One more time is all you have to say
To get you right, oh

One more time, just a little bit
One more time, just a little bit
One more time, just a little bit
One more time, just a little bit
One more time, just a little bit
One more time, just a little bit
One more time, just a little bit
One more time, just a little bit

Say, your brother's got a Jones
And he looks like skin and bones
He says he can kick it when he wants to

Or your mama's on her feet
She's eatin' at the street
All your friends get the giggles when she pass

Got no pride to face the world with
'Cause my head is on my chest, I'm looking downward
One more time and then the problem
Got to straighten out my brain from going crazy

One more time for the Jones,
one more time for the bones
One more time for kicking when he wants to
One more time for the feet,
one more time for the street
One more time for all the laughing faces

One more time for his wife,
one more time for his life
One more time for all his independence
One more time for the rent,
one more time for the man
One more time for sister and her baby

One more time for the Jones,
one more time for the bones
One more time for kicking when he wants to

Suzy Girl

Single cover

I hear a sound inside my head
I gotta know it, it's a product of my invention
Power of your suggestion

Thirty-two bars of electric guitars
And a choir of angels remounding the milky way
That's how I feel when I'm with you, Suzi girl

Suzi girl, you're my world
And I think about you,
think about you all day long
Suzi girl, you're my whole wide world
And I think about just loving you
the whole day long

Free, free as the sun up in the sky
Free as a bird I fly away into new directions
Making unreal corrections

Swooping in air at impossible speeds
And I head for the moon
And I'm there in a flash of light
That's how I feel when I'm with you, Suzi girl

Suzi girl, you're my world
And I think about you,
think about you all day long
Suzi girl, you're my whole wide world
And I think about just loving you
the whole day long

I, I see a carnaval of joy
I smell the cotton,
then the merry-go-round illusion
There is no right conclusion

People play games for a cuddly toy
And a marchingband plays
for the children who laugh with me
That's how I feel when I'm with you, Suzi girl

Suzi girl, you're my world
And I think about you,
think about you all day long
Suzi girl, you're my whole wide world
And I think about…
