BBM (Gary Moore, Jack Bruce & Ginger Baker) "Spoonful" - Live 1993




"Spoonful" is a blues song written by Willie Dixon and first recorded in 1960 by Howlin' Wolf. Called "a stark and haunting work", it is one of Dixon's best known and most interpreted songs. Etta James and Harvey Fuqua had a pop and R&B record chart hit with their duet cover of "Spoonful" in 1961, and it was popularized in the late 1960s by the British rock group Cream.







Lyrics


Could fill spoons full of diamonds

Could fill spoons full of gold

Just a little spoon of your precious love

Will satisfy my soul


Men lies about it

Some of them cries about it

Some of them dies about it

Everything's a-fightin' about the spoonful

That spoon, that spoon, that spoonful

That spoon, that spoon, that spoonful

That spoon, that spoon, that spoonful

That spoon, that spoon, that spoonful


Could fill spoons full of coffee

Could fill spoons full of tea

Just a little spoon of your precious love

Is that enough for me?


Men lies about it

Some of them cries about it

Some of them dies about it

Everything's a-fightin' about the spoonful

That spoon, that spoon, that spoonful

That spoon, that spoon, that spoonful

That spoon, that spoon, that spoonful

That spoon, that spoon, that spoonful


Could fill spoons full of water

Save them from the desert sands

But a little spoon of your forty-five

Save you from another man


Men lies about it

Some of them cries about it

Some of them dies about it

Everything's a-fightin' about the spoonful

That spoon, that spoon, that spoonful

That spoon, that spoon, that spoonful

That spoon, that spoon, that spoonful

That spoon, that spoon, that spoonful
