Song Lyric Sunday: Comfort – ‘Built For Comfort’

This week’s theme, as set by Helen at This Thing Called Life One Word At A Time is ‘comfort’.

Is it too soon for another Pink Floyd song? Probably, so that rules out ‘Comfortably Numb’. Pity.

But it’s never too soon for another bit of the blues. so here’s a Willie Dixon song, as performed by the equally legendary Howlin’ Wolf. Naughty but nice.

Some folks built like this, some folks built like that
But the way, the way I’m built, don’t you call me fat
Cause I’m built for comfort, I wasn’t built for speed
But I got everything all the good girls need

Some folks rip and roar, some folks believe in signs
But girl if you want me, you got have to take your time
Because I’m built for comfort, I wasn’t built for speed
But I got everything all the good girls need

Well I got no diamonds, I got no gold
But I do have a lovin’ and I just thought that you should know
That I’m built for comfort, baby, I just wasn’t built for speed

Well I got no diamonds, I got no gold
But I do have a lovin’ and I just thought that you should know
That I’m built for comfort, I wasn’t built for speed
But I got everything, well I got everything that all them good girls need.
