Never Grow Old】
1956年,年僅14歲的 Aretha 所發行第一張專輯中第一首單曲Never Grow Old

I have heard of a land on the far away strand,
‘Tis a beautiful home of the soul
Built by Jesus on high, where we never shall die,
‘Tis a land where we never grow old.

Never grow old, never grow old,
In a land where well never grow old
Never grow old, never grow old,
In a land where well never grow old.

In that beautiful home where well never more roam,
We shall be in the sweet by and by
Happy praise to the King through eternity sing,
‘Tis a land where we never shall die.

Never grow old, never grow old,
In a land where well never grow old
Never grow old, never grow old,
In a land where well never grow old. 

When our work here is done and the life crown is won,
And our troubles and trials are o’er
All our sorrow will end, and our voices will blend,
With the loved ones who’ve gone on before.

【Won’t Be Long】
1960年,Aretha 加入哥倫比亞的第一張專輯《ArethaThe Ray Bryant Combo》當中成績最佳的Won’t Be Long

By the railroad tracks
Waiting for my baby
‘Cause he’s coming back
Coming back to me
On the 503
And it won’t be long
No, it won’t be long 

I’ve been so lonesome
Since the man has been gone
There ain’t a thing worth mentioning
Nothin’ been going on 

And that’s why I know
When the whistle blows
Yeah, that it won’t be long
No, no, it won’t be long

My daddy told me
When he said goodbye
Yes, he did
“I’ll be back, baby
Baby, by and by,”

And that’s why I waited
So doggone long, yeah
Can’t you see how happy I am?
Because the man is coming home 

So now, here I be
By the railroad tracks
Oh, waiting for my baby
He’s coming back
Coming back to me
On the 503
Yeah, and it won’t be long
No, no, it won’t be long

I ain’t had no loving
Since you know when
He’s a long-gone rooster
And I’m a lonesome hen

And that’s why I’m sure
When the whistle blows
Yeah, that it won’t be long
No, no, it won’t be long

Mmm, and I’m so excited
My knees are shaking, yeah
Mr. Engineer
Don’t you keep me waiting!
You hear me?

Telling you:

Hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry!
Hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry!

Baby, here I am
Oh, by the railroad tracks
Waiting for my baby
He’s coming back

Coming back to me
Lord, on the 503
Yeah, and it won’t be long
No, it won’t be long 

Ahh, yeah, I know
When the whistle blows
Hey, that it won’t be long
No, no, it won’t be long
I don’t know about you, but

You’re a no good heart breaker
You’re a liar and you’re a cheat
And I don’t know why
I let you do these things to me
My friends keep telling me
That you ain’t no good
But oh, they don’t know
That I’d leave you if I could 

I guess I’m uptight
And I’m stuck like glue
Cause I ain’t never
I ain’t never, I ain’t never, no, no (loved a man)
(The way that I, I love you) 

Some time ago I thought
You had run out of fools
But I was so wrong
You got one that you’ll never lose
The way you treat me is a shame
How could ya hurt me so bad
Baby, you know that I’m the best thing
That you ever had
Kiss me once again

Don’t ya never, never say that we we’re through
Cause I ain’t never
Never, Never, no, no (loved a man)
(The way that I, I love you) 

I can’t sleep at night
And I can’t even fight
I guess I’ll never be free
Since you got, your hooks, in me 

Whoa, oh, oh Yeah! Yeah!
I ain’t never loved a man
I ain’t never loved a man, baby
Ain’t never had a man hurt me so bad No
Well this is what I’m gonna do about it

【You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman】
1968年,與Chain of Fools一樣收入在Lady Soul專輯之中,為入選名人堂的五首歌之一

Looking out on the morning rain
I used to feel so uninspired
And when I knew I had to face another day
Lord, it made me feel so tired
Before the day I met you, life was so unkind
But you’re the key to my peace of mind
‘Cause you make me feel
You make me feel
You make me feel like
A natural woman (woman)
When my soul was in the lost and found
You came along to claim it
I didn’t know just what was wrong with me
‘Til your kiss helped me name it
Now I’m no longer doubtful, of what I’m living for
And if I make you happy I don’t need to do more
‘Cause you make me feel
You make me feel
You make me feel like
A natural woman (woman)
Oh, baby, what you’ve done to me (what you’ve done to me)
You make me feel so good inside (good inside)
And I just want to be, close to you (want to be)
You make me feel so alive
You make me feel
You make me feel
You make me feel like
A natural woman (woman)
You make me feel
You make me feel
You make me feel like a natural woman (woman)
You make me feel
You make me feel

And while I’m combing my hair now
And wondering what dress to wear now (wear now)
I say a little (prayer for you)yeah
(You’ll stay in my heart and I will love you)

(Would only mean heartbreak for me)
I run for the bus, dear
And while riding I think of us, dear (us, dear)
I say a little (prayer for you)
And at work I just take time
And all through my coffee break time (break time)
I say a little (prayer for you)
and ever

Knew you’d be a vision in white
How’d you get your pants so tight?
Don’t know what you’re doin’
But you must be livin’ right, yeah 

Oh, we got some places to see
I brought all the maps with me
So jump right in, it ain’t no sin
Take a ride in my machine

City traffic movin’ way too slow
Drop the pedal and go, go, go

We goin’ ridin’ on the freeway of love
Wind’s against our backs
We goin’ ridin’ on the freeway of love
In my pink Cadillac 

Never you mind the exit signs
We got lots of time
We can’t quit ’til we get
To the other side, ide, ide

With the radio playin’ our song
We keep rollin’ along
Who knows how far our car can get
Before you think your love slowin’ on down

City traffic’s movin’ way too slow
Drop the pedal and go, go come on now, go

We goin’ ridin’ on the freeway of love
Wind’s against our backs
We goin’ ridin’ on the freeway of love
In my pink Cadillac

Here we go, one more time mmm
With the wind and your fingers in my hair
Kind of think we’re going for an extended throw down
So drop the top baby
And let’s cruise on into this better than ever street

City traffic’s movin’ way too slow
Drop the pedal and go, go, come on baby, go, do it for me now

What I want you to do baby
Get over to the left lane
And let’s merge with peace, oh yeah
Take the love that’s sent ya

And then in the right time
Go on over in love and satisfaction and joy, well
Ain’t we riding babe, ain’t we cruising down
Free, free, sweet
Go on after, awh let’s be good to each other street
Well, see that little landmark over there
A whole lot of kisses and sweet stuff
We’ll be just about, awh, awh, awh
And satisfaction road yeah, satisfaction yeah ooo ahhh

I Knew You Were Waiting For Me】

1986年,與George Michael一起合唱I Knew You Were Waiting For Me

Like a warrior that fights and wins the battle
I know the taste of victory
Though I went through some nights consumed by the shadows
I was crippled emotionally 

Somehow I made it through the heartache, yes, I did
Oh, I escaped (aha ha)
I found my way out of the darkness
I kept my faith (I know you did), kept my faith

When the river was deep, I didn’t falter
When the mountain was high, I still believed
When the valley was low, it didn’t stop me, no no
I knew you were waiting, I knew you were waiting for me
Uh huh

With an endless desire, I kept on searching
Sure in time our eyes would meet
And like a bridge that’s on fire, the hurt is over
One touch and you set me free

No, I don’t regret a single moment, no, I don’t
(I know you don’t) Looking back
When I think of all those disappointments
I just laugh (I know you do), I just laugh

When the river was deep, I didn’t falter
When the mountain was high, I still believed
When the valley was low, it didn’t stop me, oh
I knew you were waiting, hey, I knew you were waiting for me

So we were drawn together through destiny, ooh boy, ooh!
I know this love we share was meant to be, oh
(Knew you were waiting) Ooh, yeah
(Knew you were waiting) I knew you were waiting
(Knew you were waiting for me)

I didn’t falter, no
(I still believed) When the valley was low
(It didn’t stop me) Nothing can stop me, no
(Knew you were waiting) No, I
(Knew you were waiting for me)
(I didn’t falter) When the mountain was high
(I still believed) Oh, when the valley was low
(It didn’t stop me) No, it didn’t stop me, no
(Knew you were waiting) stop me
(Knew you were waiting for me)
(I didn’t falter) Oh, oh yeah
(I still believed) Oh, I still believed
(It didn’t stop me) Do you know it couldn’t stop me now? No
(Knew you were waiting)
Someday (someway), some place (somehow)
For me
(I didn’t falter) When the valley was low
(I still believed) I still believe (I believed, I believed)
(It didn’t stop me) Yeah, it couldn’t stop me

【My Country, ‘Tis of Thee】

2009年,在歐巴馬就職典禮上演唱

My country tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing.
Land where my fathers died!
Land of the Pilgrim’s pride!
From every mountain side,
Let freedom ring!

My native country, thee,
Land of the noble free,
Thy name I love.
I love thy rocks and rills,
Thy woods and templed hills;
My heart with rapture fills
Like that above.

Let music swell the breeze,
And ring from all the trees
Sweet freedom’s song.
Let mortal tongues awake;
Let all that breathe partake;
Let rocks their silence break,
The sound prolong.

Our father’s God to, Thee,
Author of liberty,
To Thee we sing.
Long may our land be bright
With freedom’s holy light;
Protect us by Thy might,
Great God, our King!

帶您進入黑人靈魂福音歌曲的世界 主持:堯堯

黑人在美國曾淪為奴隸兩三百年,他們只能在週日的下午帶著一把吉他來到密西西比河畔,透過憂鬱的曲調抒發他們對生活的不滿以及對家鄉的思念,這就是「藍調」音樂的起源。當這些人有了信仰以及對永恆的盼望,從心靈的深處向上帝吶喊出的生命祈禱,又造就出了充滿穿透力的靈魂福音歌曲。在這個節目裡堯堯老師要帶我們進入一個對華人來說很陌生的音樂領域「黑人靈歌」的世界,喜歡靈魂福音歌曲的朋友們,千萬不要錯過,每週五晚上10點鐘的「我靈歌唱」!
