upBaby Wants To Boogie
(Hans Theessink)

Baby where you going to
With your red shoes on ?
You been here such a short time,
You been gone so long

Baby wants to boogie, daddy wants to rock´n´roll (2 x)

Baby where you going to
In your dress so fine ?
Won´t you stay another while
And give me some of your time

Baby wants to boogie ...

You look like an angel
You make my heart skip a beat
The way you move your body - Babe
Knocks me off my feet

Baby wants to boogie ...

Poached eggs - scrambled eggs
In the house on the hill
Drinks and music
´Til you had your fill

Baby wants to boogie ...

Baby where you going to
With your red shoes on ?
You been here such a short time,
You been gone so long

Baby wants to boogie ...

upMy Baby Changed The Lock On Her Door
(Hans Theessink)

My baby changed - changed the lock on her door
My mama changed - changed the lock on her door
The key I've got - it just don't fit no more

My mama told me - my papa told me too
My dear old mother told me - my papa told me too
Settle down with that woman - she'll make a wreck out of you

You threw out my clothes and my blue suede shoes
And my old guitar - a Gibson Kalamazoo
But how on earth could you throw out my rhythm 'n blues
(Spoken: especially that old Ray Charles record)

They say you've got a new man - the rumour's spread all over town
You got yourself a new man - the rumour's spread all over town
Guess I'm leaving you baby - you won't stop messing ´round

Bye bye baby - believe it's time to go
Bye bye baby - believe it's time to go
You won't stop messin´ with mr. so and so

upDarkest Hour
(Hans Theessink)

Oh the sun is nearly rising
And the night is almost gone (2x)
The darkest hour is just before dawn

Won't you cuddle up a little closer
Mama won't you hold my hand (2x)
The blues is creeping on me
Got to loose ´em if I can

Oh the sun is nearly rising ...

I can hear the rooster crowing
Mama ´t ain't long fore day (2x)
Wait for the sunshine
To drive my blues away

Oh the sun is nearly rising ...

upHunted Man
(Hans Theessink)

I'm running, running, running
Feet they hardly touch the ground
Policedogs on my trail
'Cause I shot my woman down

I caught my baby
On a midnight creep
Blew a bullet through her head
Before she woke up from her sleep

I'm a hunted man
Can't find no hiding place
Gotta keep on moving
Like the wild geese flyin' to the west

Gonna charge me for murder
Murder in the first degree
Take me down to the jail
Spend my time in misery

Judge and jury
Gonna send me to the 'lectric chair
Gonna meet my baby
When I fly away from here

Got a rabbit-bone
And I got a mojo-bone
All the good luck charms in the world
Can't help me none

Dark is the night
Cold is the ground
Cryin' lord have mercy
On a poor boy death-cell bound

upWent To The Doctor
(Hans Theessink)

Been across the country - been a-travellin' 'round
Been in every city - been in every town
Lived the hard life - drinkin' whiskey and wine
If the boogie woogie kills me - lordie - I don't mind

I don't mind - lord - I don't mind
If the boogie woogie kills me - lordie - I don't mind

Went to the doctor - doctor told me son
Ain't very wise what you done done
If you don't skip your sporting life
You gonna be a dead man - before you're forty-five

Before you're forty-five - before you're forty-five
You gonna be a dead man before you're forty-five

I tell you good people - 'bout a friend of mine
A picker and a singer - gave us all a good time
One day it hit him - hit him so bad
Nearly killed the best friend - I've ever had

I've ever had - I've ever had
I tell you good people it nearly killed him dead

Been across the country ...

Theessinks' re-workings of traditional delta-blues are light years past any other contemporary bluesman. His own songs are capable of standing up to the classics.
