Oh, oh! Maserati GT off the BOC live album; "On Your Feet or On Your Knees"

Written by Calvin Carter, done by the Yardbirds too, lyrics; (better check 'em)

got a Maserati G.T.
With snakeskin upholstery.
I got a charge account at Goldblatt's,
But I ain't got you.

I got a closet full of clothes,
But no matter where it goes,
It keeps a ring in the nose,
But I ain't got you.

I got a tavern and a liquor store.
I play the numbers, yeah, four forty-four.
I got a mojo, yeah, don't you know,
I'm all dressed up with no place to go.

I got women to the right of me.
I got women to the left of me.
I got women all around me,
But I ain't got you.
No, I ain't got you.

(Third Verse)

(Fourth Verse)

No I ain't got you.

Blues Brothers did it as "I ain't got you"

I've got a '65 Cadillac
Spare tire on the back
Charge card at Goblatts
But I ain't got you

I've got women to the right of me
Women to the left of me
I've got chicks all around me
But I ain't got you

I've got a tavern, a liquor store
I hit the number, 444
I got a mojo, don't you know
I'm all dressed up with no place to go

I've got women to the left of me
I've got women to the right of me
I've got chicks all around me
But I ain't got you
[ Lyrics provided by www.mp3lyrics.org ]
No I ain't got you

I've got a tavern, a liquor store
I hit the number, 444
I got a mojo, don't you know
I'm all dressed up with no place to go

I've got a pocket of crumpled bills
I've got a stomach full of pills
I've got Fanny Fox and Rubber Mills
But I ain't got you
No I ain't got you
No I ain't got you

It was originally done by the Downchild Blues Band (original title I Got Everything I need) but the Blues Brothers took it and made it more mainstream and they recorded it as I Got Everything I Need, Almost.

I got everything I need, almost
I got everything I need, almost
But I don't got you
And you're the thing I need the most

I got a car that I bought
Won't get me far
I gotta wish on a star
Tell me mama


I got everything I need, almost
I got everything I need, almost
But I don't got you
And you're the thing I need the most


I got friends who like me
Cause I got lots of dough
The people recognize me
Wherever I go
I don't got trouble gettin' high
But if I don't get you I believe I will die


I got everything I need, almost
I got everything I need, almost
But I don't got you
And you're the thing I need the most


I got everything I need, almost
I got everything I need, almost


I got everything I need, almost
I got everything I need, almost
But I don't got you
And you're the thing I need the most

The Blues Bros. version I remember was called 'Almost'.

I've got everything I need, almost
I've got everything I need,
Tell you honey
I've got everything I need, almost
I've got everything I need, almost
But I don't got you 'cause you're the thing I need the most.


I've got a car with bar,
won't get me far.
I've got a wish on a star,
Tell you honey I've got everything I need, almost
I've got everything I need, almost,
but I don't got you, 'cause your the thing I need the most.

I've got freinds that like me
'cause I've got lots of dough.
And people recognize me wherever I go.
I don't got trouble gettin' high
But if I don't get you I believe I will die.

I've got everything I need, almost
I've got everything I need, almost
But I don't got you 'cause you're the thing I need the most.


Ya beat me to it, Ripper!

You are right Lester, my Dyslexia kicked in for the Blues Brothers title, it is Almost (I got everything I need). Great tune.
