Then I Got Everything

Recorded: 16-05-63.  Kidd-Green, 1963

Johnny Kidd (vocals) - Mick Green (lead) - Johnny Spence (bass) - Frank Farley (drums)

The flip to "I'll Never Get Over You", a collaboration between Kidd and his guitarist, was more indicative of the bands' powerful and confident sound but also marked the end of Kidd's name mentioned as songwriter, although he was credited with arranging their version of the traditional "Gotta Travel On" in 1965.

 
I could be rolling in money
Have plenty of diamond rings
But when I get to making love to youa
Then I got everything

I could be rich as Rockefeller
It still wouldn't make me sing
For when I get to making love to you
Then I got everything

     Well, you got what it takes and a lot more too
     Bless my soul, I couldn't live without you
     There ain't nobody in the Universe you see
     T
hat could touch you baby, you mean everything to me now

If I talk a Beauty Queen
I still wouldn't feel like a King
'Cos all I want is your sweet, sweet love
Then I got everything, making floosie boy

(instrumental break)

     You got what it takes and a lot more too
     Bless my soul, I couldn't live without you
     There ain't nobody in the Universe you see
     That can touch you baby, you mean everything to me now

If I talk a Beauty Queen
I still wouldn't feel like a King
'Cos all I want is your sweet, sweet love
Then I got everything - come on now
Then I got everything - you know I love you
Then I got everything - I love you
Then I got everything - come on
(on to fade)
