Music

Hearing Mark and the band live is the best way to experience the depth of the soul and joy of life that is expressed in their music. These tracks will give you a taste of what it is like to witness one of their performances. The sample tracks here were recorded live at The Buck Wild Saloon in New Iberia Louisiana, one of the best places to hear the band. Mark Willis and Cocodrie usually play at this fun little roadhouse about twice a month. See the performance schedule on this site for further information on dates and times.

I've Been Loving You Too Long by Otis Redding

sung by Mark Willis

 

I've been loving you too long to stop now

There were time and you want to be free

My love is growing stronger, as you become a haven to me

Oh I've been loving you a little too long

I dont wanna stop now, oh

With you my life,

Has been so wonderful

I can't stop now

There were times and your love is growing cold

My love is growing stronger as our affair [affair] grows old

I've been loving you a little too long, long,

I don't want to stop now

oh, oh, oh

I've been loving you a little bit too long

I don't wanna stop now

No, no, no

Don't make me stop now

No baby

I'm down on my knees Please, don't make me stop now

I love you, I love you,

I love you with all of my heart

And I can't stop now

Don't make me stop now

Please, please don't make me stop now

[Good god of mine]I love you

I love you, I love you, I love you

I love you, I love you

I love you in so many different ways...

I love you in so many different ways....

sung by Mark Willis

 

Little bitty boy, with a heart of steel

You know you can't boogie now, but your sister sure will

Feel good music in your soul

Makes your body wanna rock, wanna rock 'n' roll

 

Hey, hey, hey, hey

Hey, Pocky Way

Hey, hey, hey

Hey, Pocky Way

 

Lie back grooving in your car

Makes no difference who or where you are

Feel good music in your soul

Makes your body wanna, wanna rock 'n' roll

 

Hey, hey, hey, hey

Hey, Pocky Way

Hey, hey, hey

Hey, Pocky Way

 

Lie back grooving in your car

Makes no difference who or where you are

Feel good music in your soul

Makes your body wanna rock 'n' roll

 

Hey, hey, hey, hey

Hey, Pocky Way

Hey, hey, hey

Hey, Pocky Way

 

Hey, hey, hey, hey

Hey, Pocky Way

Hey, hey, hey

Hey, Pocky Way

Tell It Like It Is

(lee diamond, george davis)

sung by Mark Willis

 

If you want something to play with

Go and find yourself a toy

Baby my time is too expensive

And I'm not a little boy

 

If you are serious

Don't play with my heart

It makes me furious

But if you want me to love you

Then a baby I will, girl you know that I will

 

Tell it like it is

Don't be ashamed to let your conscience be your guide

But I know deep down inside me

I believe you love me, forget your foolish pride

 

Life is too short to have sorrow

You may be here today and gone tomorrow

You might as well get what you want

So go on and live, baby go on and live

 

Tell it like it is

I'm nothing to play with

Go and find yourself a toy

But i... tell it like it is

My time is too expensive and I'm not your little boy

 


LET THE FOUR WINDS BLOW

(D. Bartholomew / A. Domino) Fats Domino

sung by Mark Willis

 

I like the way you walk

I like the way you talk

Let me hold your hand

Try to understand

I want a girl like you

Tell my love is true

Don't be afraid

You've heard what I said

 

Let the four winds blow

Let it blow and a-blow

From the east to the west

I love you the best

Let the four winds blow

Let it blow and a-blow

From the east to the west

I love you the best

 

(INSTRUMENTAL INTERLUDE)

 

I like the way you walk

I like the way you talk

Let me hold your hand

Try to understand

I want a girl like you

Tell my love is true

Don't be afraid

You've heard what I said

 

Let the four winds blow

Let it blow and a-blow

From the east to the west

I love you the best

Let the four winds blow

Let it blow and a-blow

From the east to the west

I love you the best
