Chi-Lites, The - A Lonely Man Lyrics




Ah-ah-ah...
Doo-doo-doo-doo, you better let me tell ya
Ah-ah-ah...
Doo-doo-doo-doo, you better let me tell ya

You know, some time ago
Our pathways parted
Now you may have found bliss
Yeah, but I found regret

Maybe you can smile
Maybe even laugh
Yeah, but all the while
I'm trying to forget

Tears cannot express my grief
Nor words my loneliness
For they can only tell a part
And let my heart tell you the rest

I would season every day of my life with you
You better let me tell ya
I would show you just what it means to be true, girl
You better let me tell ya

Cause after love has come and gone
Baby, I'm the lonely one
Ooh...
But why should a man be lonely
(Why should a man be lonely, why should a man be lonely)
When he has someone like you

How can I make you believe
That I got to have you, baby (got to have you, baby)
Yes, I got to have you, baby (got to have you, baby)
Oh, I got to have you, baby (got to have you, baby)

I would sweeten every hour of my day with you
You better let me tell ya
I would give you all the things a good lady would need
You better let me tell ya

For you I'd save up all of my time
Give you every dime
For you, girl, you better let me tell ya

Cause after love has come and gone
Baby, I'm the lonely one
Ooh...
But why should a man be lonely
(Why should a man be lonely, why should a man be lonely)
When he has someone like you

How can I make you believe
That I got to have you, baby (got to have you, baby)
Yes, I got to have you, baby (got to have you, baby)
Oh, I got to have you, baby (got to have you, baby)

I got to travel on
Down life's highway
Searching faces
Some old, some new
Seeking someone whom I need the most
I know there can't be two
Yeah, I'm searching for someone
Who's the closest thing to you

Gotta go on, gotta go on
I'm so lonely, I gotta go
I'm so lonely, gotta go, yeah
Oh, I just gotta go

I said, baby, baby, baby, baby, oh
I just-just-just-just got to go (I've got to go, I've got to go)
I'm so lonely (hey), I gotta go (oh)
I'm so lonely, gotta go, yeah
(Gotta go on, yeah, yeah)
(Oh, I gotta go, I gotta go, I just gotta go, yeah)
Gotta go on, gotta go on

I'm so lonely, I gotta go, I'm so lonely, yeah, yeah
I've just gotta go
Hey, hey, got to, got to, oh, I got to, I just to go on
(I've got to go, I've got go)
I'm so lonely (hey), I gotta go (oh)
I'm so lonely

  2. Radzyyah Muhammad

    I like it! It reminds me of the 'blue light' in the basement dances that we had growing up. It is GREAT!

  3. DJ Shaztastic

    Always wonder what producers hear in a song which inspires them to use elements to sample.
    Begins at 1.59 "Someone like you" vocal.
    Used by Araabmusik, watch at 7.30

                        For Sale



    The Legendary Chi Lites Son Families Story Saga Of Music Legacy Corruption And Corruption(FOR RED’S SAKE) GIVE MORE POWER TO THE PEOPLE


     


     -Synopsis –


     


    The son of an R&B legend tells the incredible but true story of a family torn apart by greed, corruption and the systematic abuse of black artists in the United States. Darren Cubie grew up in St. Louis not knowing why assassination attempts, FBI investigations, and witness protection programs weren’t supposed to be a ’normal’ part of life. With the hall of fame success 


     


     of the iconic soul group known as the Chi-Lites, Darren’s father, founding member Credel “Red” Jones came a terrible price. Like so many other black artists of the day, the devil was in the details in the form of contracts and agreements with the mob filtered thru corrupt record executives and banksters. 


     


     The bitter ending of Creadel’s journey in 1994, penniless on the streets of L.A., has spurred Darren on to become a champion for artists everywhere who’ve suffered from this decades-old system of abuse.


     


     -Main Characters –


     


     Darren Cubie, founder of Entertainers Against Corruption tells the story of Creadel “Red” Jones of the iconic Chi-Lites, the horrific betrayal by his mother Deborah Jones and aunt Regina Cubie and a family ripped apart by an industry of greed. It is thru the telling of the tale that positive change is achieved.


     


     -Story Structure –


     


     The documentary will feature archival footage of classic Chi-Lites performances as well as references to several R&B icons both past and present (i.e. Jackie Wilson, the Jacksons, Beyonce). Primarily the story is about Darren’s survival in the face of this machine that threatened to grind him and his family into the dirt. 


     


     The refusal to bend to the systematic abuse the led Creadel to his tragic demise is Darren’s mission – changing the system, one story at a time. 


     


     Throughout the recollection of the sad past of Darren’s life should be a present-day bridge showing his efforts to reverse things on behalf of artists everywhere. The day to day hustle of being the voice behind Entertainers Against Corruption. Ultimately we should see Darren continue to recruit other R&B and industry stars to the cause to not let his story repeat itself.


     


     -Style –


     


     The flashbacks can have a lo-fi look to them and the present day footage can be shot in a stylized way with go pro kinds of cameras to capture the immediacy of Darren’s day to day mission.


     


     -Format and other production information –


     


    The documentary will be shot digitally and transferred to film for theatrical release. Locations: Chicago, St. Louis, Los Angeles. Timeframe: 1958-present

    Oh and don’t let nobody fool you. That is JAMES JAMERSON on the BASS! I got the inside scoop! They let a regular bass player record, Then erased his part and Brought in Jamerson. That’s him on “Have you seen her” “Oh girl” (pure Jamerson on that one). Listen to “ Living in the footsteps of another man” and tell me that’s not Jamerson. Here’s the connection; Jamerson played on Jackie Wilson’s “Higher and higher”. Jackie’s label was Brunswick records. Chi-lites label? Brunswick.

  52. UNC

    The Drummer! Those little hi hat pushes on the “one” just kill me every time. Push 2 3 4 Push 2 3 4... The chi-lites were called the kings of sad songs

  53. John B. Melton Jr.

    This is the music of my youth,and it still is at my age of 56 years old.Thank you Chi-Lites for your greatness.You made the world a much,much,much better place.Your music will always be in my heart,mind,spirit,and soul forever.Your masterpieces are absolutely awesome.God bless you.
