about

Pricey to purchase this one .. let's say if you want it bad enough you're willing to help pay for my upcoming legal fees. I so desperately wanted to include this version on Satyr's Day Parade ..

lyrics

Ooh .. hot .. ooh ooh ooh hot
Ooh .. hot .. ooh ooh ooh hot

A nasty case of the Upton blues could lay me up for a week
Morning shakes and midnight chills ..
Get no relief but you're fading in style .. yeah .. uh huh ..

Found me in an east end room like a match so ready to burn
High-wire acts are hard to find
You better hold on tight, my girl

I rock and roll all night - it's been my life
And nothing was ever free .. nothing was ever free
Well, you're in it for a whole lotta love
Or you're shaking my tree ..
Don't give me those Upton blues ..
Don't give me those Upton blues

Just this morning, half past nine, I made my way to the street
Sunlight surely hurt my eyes .. still not able to see
I won't try and chain you, honey .. I'm not made that way
Kick off your sandals if you think you might intend to stay ..

I rock and roll all night - it's been my life
And nothing was ever free .. nothing was ever free
So you're in it for a whole lotta love
Or you're shaking my .. tree
Don't give me those Upton blues
Give me those Upton blues

Upton blues .. the death of me .. I'm running out of time
Send a whirling dervish girl
To weave in and out of my mind

We're stuck here in this east end room
And I'm a matchstick ready to burn
Well, high-wire acts are hard to find
You'd better hold my hand, my girl ..

I rock and roll all night - it's been my life
Nothing was ever free .. nothing was ever free
So you're in it for a whole lotta love
Or you're shaking my ..
I rock and roll all night - it's been my life
And nothing was ever free .. nothing was ever free
So you're in it for a whole lotta love
Or you're shaking my tree

Give me those Upton blues
