Medley: Fact Of Life / He'll Be There When The Sun Goes Down - Bobby Womack

You know, people always ask me say
Bobby why do you always talk before you sing?
You know like I notice in most of your songs
You always have somethin' to say
People that talk, usually, I think that you should have
Somethin' to say, or you shouldn't talk just to be talkin'
But I feel at the same time I got somethin' to say I'ma say it
Because I, maybe it might help you on your merry way

Like I'm an entertainer, I'm in show business
And I like to speak for all people that's in
Show business, a lot of people don't understand
They look at us different
But there's no difference, we need the same thing, that you need
It's simple like

Let's say if you were away from home, know what I mean?
And uh, you make home, or you try
Or you make an attempt to make home, where it was, know what I mean?
Where it is

So like uh, so like a few days ago, I was in uh, Chicago
And after the show I had, previously, I had seen this young lady
Sitting backstage and she was, uh
Seem like she had a whole lot of time on her hands, or I didn't know
So after the show, I was a little lonely and I didn't want to go back
To the hotel by myself
And I had been feeling her vibe all through the whole night
So I said," Hey Baby what're you doin' after the show?" She said
"Oh I ain't doin' nothin'"

I said, "Well dig, like I'm at the Holiday Inn at room 234
Why don't you stop by and have a drink?" She said
Aw you don't wanna buy me no drink
You can buy me a drink right here" said
"You just wanna get me up in your room", you know?"
And so many times this is said to entertainers
And it makes 'em feel so bad, you know what I mean?

Because like, I've always been the kind of
Person if that was the case I would tell you
Yes I want you in my room
The only reason you'd be hangin' around was because you would want
To be there anyway
Or was waitin' on an opportunity if that was the case
Know what I mean?

See what people gotta learn is to start doing is that...
Don't, d-don't don't be jivin yourself, you can't fool yourself
You know?
I'm just gon'
If I, if, if I want water, I'm gon ask for water I'll say
"I'm thirsty", you know what I mean?

But the whole thing to all of this is just that
You know I'ma be gone tomorrow
I mean even if I wanted to stay my job won't permit me to
You know what I mean?
It gets real technical, it gets down in the contract, agencies
People like that you know?
And it's all about money
Behind the scenes, but with me it's all about feeling

I don't wanna get you involved
I don't wanna mess up your life if you got somethin'
Goin', like keep a man, it's cool to have a man from nine to five
Ain't nothin' wrong with that
Like I say, don't get hung up on me
'Cause tomorrow I might be gone on down the road
It's cool if you can handle it
See if you got a good man remember one thing

Oh, he'll be there, when your sun go down
And I'll be somewhere runnin' down that same old line
In another town
'Cause I thought I'd let you know, where I'm comin' from
I don't really mean you no wrong
But I gotta keep movin' on, gotta keep movin' on

And he'll be there when your lights go dim
So why chase me up and down the road?
And in your mind you know that you should be with him, oh
I can't help, but we can't help what we feel inside, baby
Wanna let it out, be we all hung up on pride
But oh pride can't fulfil the need inside
Come and get it, go on home, but leave it outside

Cause he'll be there
I'm just tellin' you like it is
When the sun go down
You ain't always be sweet sixteen
So while you still caryin' little weight
Find you somebody that's gon really mean you some good

Listen to me
But don't get me wrong
I fall in love like any other man do
But I gotta keep movin' from place to place
And in my heart, I might just wanna be with you

I have to get it where I can
Can't you see I'm like, oh, any other man?
