Riding On Empty Gene Robert a.k.a. Clifford Coulter

We used to make some groovy vibrations
Mama now something’s gone I feel a slow change
It makes me feel so unnecessary
What’s the matter can you tell me explain
To me it’s like some mystery
It’s like a fairytale
Mama I can’t tell my head from my tail

You got me
riding on emptiness
Hey Mama I’m loosing my groove now yes I am
I gonna find out why separate the truth from lie
Got to get down to the bottom try to figure out my problem

I thought I’d hire me a private detective
So he could watch you like a hawk everyday
Mama I guess he must have watched you too closely
Cause the bill I got was marked fully paid
Oh why, why can’t you realize
I’m just a classic fool
For loving you the way that I do

You got me
rolling on empty babe
Say Mama I’m loosing my groove now yes I am
I’m gonna find out why
Separate the truth from the lie
Don’t you play with my affection
Send some love in my direction come on, hey baby
This is the season to be pleasing come on

Mama try to leave you baby every morning
But my feet won’t get me past the front door
Your love is just like lightning and thunder
It’s so strong I keep returning for more
Oh why am I mystified
It’s like a fairytale
Mama I can’t tell my head from my tail

You got me
rolling on emptiness
Hey Mama I’m loosing my groove Oh yes I am
I’m gonna find out why
Separate thee truth from the lie
Don’t you play with my affection
Send some love in my direction oh baby

Now ain’t that loving you baby, you got some love so good I just can’t stand it
Now Mama I give you all of my money I give you everything I own plus my love
Hey baby I love you so much every night and day I think only about you
Now ain’t that loving you, ain’t that loving you, Now ain’t that loving you, oh baby, baby
Ain’t that loving you ain’t that grooving you . . .
