Song Lyric Sunday: Same/Different – ‘The Same Thing’

Same or different is the choice for Jim’s Song Lyric Sunday this week.

You can find excellent versions of this song by The Allman Brothers and The Grateful Dead among others, but here it is as performed by Willie Dixon – who did, after all, actually write it in the first place

Why do men go crazy
When a woman wears her dress so tight?
Why do men go crazy
When a woman wears her dress so tight?
Well, it must be the same old thing
That makes a tomcat fight all night

Why do all of the men try to run
A big legged woman down?
Why do all of the men try to run
A big legged woman down?
Well, it must be the same old thing
That makes a bulldog love a hound

Well, it’s the same thing
Well, it’s the same old thing
Tell me who is to blame
The whole world is fighting all about that same thing

What makes you feel so good
When your baby gets down her evening gown?
What makes you feel so good
When your baby gets down her evening gown?
Well, it must be the same old thing
That makes a preacher man lay his Bible down

Well, it’s the same thing
Well, it’s the same old thing

Written by Willie Dixon
