This is a fun song to play, it's got that blues/boogie feel to it.

The bars and spacing have absolutely no bearing on the timing.


 Riff-A Play 2x     .

Lyrics:

Hey now, baby,well, I like your smile.Won't you come and talk to
me.for a little while.
Well, you're makin' me crazy,the way you roll them eyes.Won't you come
and sit with me.I'll tell you all my lies.
(Chorus)
Hey baby, it's a quarter to eight.I feel I'm in the mood.Hey baby, the
hour is late.I feel I've got to move.
Well, hey now, baby,Don't you talk so fast.I'm just try'n' to make
these good times,I'm try'n' to make it last.
Ev'rything's getting hazy.Now honey, where'd you go?I just want to
find out, baby,where'd you learn what you know?
Hey baby, it's a quarter to eight.I feel I'm in the mood.Hey baby, the
hour is late.I feel I've got to move.
Well, hey now, baby,said, I like your style.You really got me,
baby,way down deep inside.
Oo, you drive me crazy.Baby, you're the one.I just want to
rock-and-roll you woman,until the night is gone.

Hey baby, it's a quarter to eight.I feel I'm in the mood.Hey baby, the
hour is late.I feel I've got to move.
