Song Lyric Sunday: Otis Rush, “Homework”

Jim once again brings us a prompt from Paula: "School, College, Education, Class, Degree." Let’s take another trip to the West Side of Chicago to hear Otis Rush, from 1962: "Homework," a song by Al Perkins and Dave Clark.

The lyrics, via AZLyrics:

Oh baby, you know I may be a fool
I’m wastin’ my time by goin’ to school
The way you got me holdin’ your door
I can’t do my homework anymore
I can’t do my homework anymore

Oh baby, I said you got me so blind
I’m walkin’ ’round in circles, I could loose my mind
The way you got me holdin’ your door
I can’t do my homework anymore

Now baby your as sweet as you can be
Everything you do keep on sending me
Just the kiss of your lips or the touch of your hand
Everything you do is really grand

Oh baby, oh, now what can I do
I’m walkin’ round in circles in love with you
The way you got me holdin’ your door
I can’t do my homework anymore

Now baby your as sweet as you can be
Everything you do keep on sending me
Just the kiss of your lips or the touch of your hand
Everything you do is really grand

Oh baby, oh, now what can I do
I’m walkin’ round in circles in love with you
The way you got me holdin’ your door
I can’t do my homework anymore
I can’t do my homework anymore
I can’t do my homework anymore
I can’t do my homework anymore
I can’t do my homework anymore

That’s Song Lyric Sunday (and Song of the Day) for November 28, 2021.
