Lyrics to "Tramp" song by Otis Redding: Tramp! What you call me? Tramp. Well tell me. I'm the only son-of-a-gun this side of the Sun. You're a tramp, Otis. No I'm not. I don't care what you say, you're still a tramp. Knock On Wood Let Me Be Good To You Tramp Tell It Like It Is When Something Is Wrong With My Baby Lovey Dovey New Year's Resolution It Takes Two Are You Lonely For Me Baby Bring It On Home To Me Ooh Carla, Ooh Otis. album: "The Dock Of The Bay" (1968). Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay I Love You More Than Words Can Say Let Me Come On Home Open the Door Don't Mess With Cupid The Glory of Love I'm Coming Home to See About You Tramp The Huckle-Buck Nobody Knows You (When You're Down and Out) Ole Man Trouble.

Otis Redding & Carla Thomas.

This album here is Stax's answer to the pairing of Motown artists Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell by combining two of its' own label mates Otis Redding and Carla Thomas together for their soul-singing efforts. To start with it kicks off their rendition of label-mate Eddie Floyd's Knock On Wood with more or less the same musicians used on the original recording. The rest of this record, first released in 1967, lingers well, too: the covers of several rock and roll masterpieces like "Tell It Like It Is," "It Takes Two,"and "Bring It On Home to Me," are crisp, light-handed, and sure-footed. People say that the late, great Marvin Gaye never sang better than when he was paired with Tammi Terrell; that's a matter of personal taste, and I wouldn't say the same about Otis Redding and Carla Thomas.

And I'm not just a little little betty baby boy, no no Otis, if you are serious Don't play with my heart, it makes me furious But if you want me to love you Baby, you know I will, honey, you know I will Tell it like it is, yeah Don't be ashamed to let your conscience be your guide. Tell it like it is I want you to forget your foolish pride, oh yeah Life is too short to have sorrow (oh, yes it is) You may be here today and gone tomorrow You might as well get what you want So go on and live, Carla honey, baby, go on and live I'm just tell it like it is Just
