ROCK Sex: 'Kisses So Good I Had To Hollar For Help!'
"You didn't have to squeeze me like you did, but you did, but you did/ and I thank you!"
The original version of "I Thank You" was set loose by the impossibly cool SAM & DAVE. It was written like most of their hits by the secret soul men, Dave Porter and Isaac Hayes.
Here they are teaching Ed Sullivan how to shake his moneymaker...
SAM & DAVE -"I Thank You" (1968)
FM Rock fans know it by the edgy boogie version by these demented prospectors...
ZZ TOP -"I Thank You" (1979)
"Every day was something new,
You pull out your bag and your fine to-do
You got me trying new things too
Just so I can keep up with you!"
