Susan wants to take me
to a party over yonder
Susan wants to take me
to her heart
It’s a arm and tender place there,
do you know
Susan, I’ve been living here
in this fortress
And it’s filled with armor
And sometimes celebrations
lose their charm

Susan do you mind,
sometimes I’m restless
Rolling on the floor in pain and woe
After all the precious gifts you
will gladly give to me, girl
I may blindly lock and bolt the door

  1. You know I had the distinct pleasure of meeting al jarreau and his wife Susan they were owners of a popping club named ” Moody’s by the sea” in Santa Monica Calif back in the 1980’s. Looking back in meeting him he was quite friendly and his wife too was truly open and personable couple. He may of been a 7 time Grammy winner and all but I will always remember him as being a real down to earth gentleman and has such a beautiful smile will miss his caliber of person RIP
