Lee Dorsey – Soul Mine Lyrics

I been working in the coal mine
Trying to find a gold mine
But you give me a soul mine
Filled with a love and understanding
Sweetness sweeter then candy, I been

Trying to make the money
Forgettin’ all about the honey
But you came as sweet as the summer
A-shining a light on the matter
You said pick up the ladder

I was climbin’ through the
But something kept putting the stop on
But you came and laid the mop on
Girl I must confess, you sure cleaned up the mess

I think through you my heart could love and be loved
What you say? What you say?
And then we’ll never have to
Come back again, you’re my lover
You’re my friend

You’re my sunshine, you’re my rain
You’re my one sweet moment again and again
You’re my white wine
You’re my shining star, and I’m your number one fan

Yeah

Well

I been writhin’ on my apartment
A-diggin’ on the sounds on the
But you came and now I only girl
I only wanna be good things that please you

Yeah I been sittin’ here la la
I wait to perform and ya ya
But you dun came and ta ta
Ah, I gotta thank you girl you’ve shooken up the world to me

I think through you my heart could love and be loved
What you say? What you say?
You will never have to pay to stay
Come back again, you’re my lover
You’re my friend

You’re my sunshine, you’re my rain
You’re my one sweet moment again and again
You’re my white wine, my only friend
You’re my shining star, and I’m your number one fan oh yeah

I been
I been
I been
Well I been
Where I’ve been
