Let's Straighten It Out - Benny Latimore/with Gwen McCrae

Let's Straighten It Out
Sit yourself down, girl, and talk to me
Tell me what's, uh, on your mind.
Don't keep on tellin' me everything's okay,
'Cause if it was, then you wouldn't be cryin'.
You been tossin' and turnin' in your sleep lately,
Sittin' 'round poutin' all day long.
Now how in the hell you expect me to understand,
When I don't even know what's wrong

Let's straighten it out (2x)
Let's straighten it out, baby,
Let's straight it out

For the last five nights, honey, when we went to bed,
Oh, I could tell somethin' just wasn't right.
When you turned your back to me and you covered your head,
Then you didn't even say goodnight.
Now if you tired, and you don't want to be bothered, baby,
Just say the word and I'll leave you alone.
Instead of layin' out, cryin' your eyes out, baby,
You and me ought to be getting' it on.

Let's straighten it out

Let's straight it out, baby, let's straighten it out.
Why don't you talk to me, honey
How in the hell do you expect me to understand,
When I don't even know what's wrong
I believe we gonna straighten it out
