Oh, for a Friday night out listening to the blues sung with real class! Catherine Russell grew up in New York in a musical family (her father collaborated with Louis Armstrong, her mother is a singer, too) and has been a backup vocalist for big pop and jazz acts for years. But she’s got her second solo album out and it’s called “A Sentimental Streak”.

I’m lazy, that’s all (by Pearl Bailey)

I’m lazy that’s all, I don’t know the reason
Lazy that’s all, can’t be the season
‘Cause whether it’s spring summer winter or fall
I’m doggone lazy, that’s all.

I know that I should go earn a living
Baby I would consider giving
To work all day long like some folks do
If I didn’t have so much resting to do.

People say you know, you ain’t good for nothing
Well it’s just that nothin’s good for me
I had a man, he was really something
But making love took too much of my energy.

Oh, I’m lazy, that’s all, I know it’s true,
I’m lazy, that’s all, so I’m telling you,
Forget all my so-called ability,
Cause I know my own capacity.
And I’m just a creature who was born to be
Oh, so doggone lazy, that’s all.

Well, my momma say, “You know, child, you just ain’t good for nothin’!”
Well, momma, it’s just that nothin’s so good for me.
I had a man, he was really something
But making love took too much of my energy.

Ooh, I’m so lazy, yeah, people, I’m so lazy,
Forget all my so-called ability,
Cause I know my own capacity.
And I’m just a creature who was born to be
Oh, so doggone lazy, that’s all.

I don’t care who knows – Listen to this one on her website!

Like a catfish loves the water
And like a pork hog loves the corn
And like the bees, they love the honey
And like an old dog loves a bone
I love my baby, I said I love my baby
I love my baby and I don’t care who knows

Like a bull weevil loves the cotton
And like the dark clouds love the rain
And like a good man loves his woman
And like a good gal loves her man

I love my baby, I said I love my baby
I love my baby and I don’t care who knows.

Well, I may be a little bit jealous
Oh, you’ll know the reason why
Cause if I don’t love my baby
Well, I declare to the maker and I hope to die

Like a baby loves his candy
And like a prospect loves his gold
And like a hound dog loves a rabbit
And like a gopher loves its hole

I love my baby, I said I love my baby
I love my baby and I don’t care who knows.
