ALLA THAT'S ALL RIGHT, BUT
words by June Jordan © 1980, Beacon Press
music by Bernice Johnson Reagon © 1980, Songtalk Publishing Co.
recorded by Sweet Honey in the Rock on "Breaths" (Flying Fish #FF70105)


Somebody come and carry me
into a seven day kiss
Somebody come and carry me
into a seven day kiss
Somebody come and carry me
into a seven day kiss
I don't need no historic, no national,
no family bliss
I need an absolutely one to one
A seven day kiss - help me now

I can read the daily papers
I can even make a speech
but the news is stuff that tapers
down to salt poured in that breach
I have been scheming about my people
I have been scheming about sex
I have been dreaming about Africa
Nightmaring Oedipus the Rex

But what I need is quite specific
terrifying rough stuff and terrific
I need an absolutely one to one
A seven day kiss - help me now

Somebody come and carry me
into a seven day kiss
Somebody come and carry me
into a seven day kiss
Somebody come and carry me
into a seven day kiss
I don't need no historic, no national,
no family bliss
I need an absolutely one to one
A seven day kiss - help me now

By the way, Sweet Honey in the Rock has a web site - click here. I had to find the lyrics the hard way, though. They only post one song at a time, and the one you wanted wasn't the one they had posted. It was a nice excuse to listen to some sweet Sweet Honey.

This song is on their live CD, Good News. (Also, check out their live Carnegie Hall CD, it's a good 'un.)
