Built For Comfort

Lyrics: Willie Dixon
Music: Willie Dixon

Sung by Marleen Molle with Comfort in 1978. The shows were with Robert Hunter and were part of sets where he and the band played his songs. But I'm not sure if he took part in this or other songs where Comfort vocalists took the lead.

Not to be confused with the Heart of Gold Band song with the same title.

Some folk built are like this, some folk are built like that
But the way I am built, well you can't call, you can't call me flash
Oh honey, 'cause, 'cause I'm built for comfort not for speed, no, no, none of that speed
But I've got everything a good lovin' woman would need, oh yeah, oh yeah

Some folks say rip and run, some folk say believe in signs
But if I'm gonna love you baby, well I got to, oh I got to take my time
I got to take all the time in the world, yeah, oh yeah
'Cause I'm built for comfort, I'm not built for speed, oh no, oh no

Now I ain't got no diamonds, I ain't got no gold
But I got everything that I need to build, oh to build a young man so
Oh yeah, I'm gonna take you home, I'm gonna build you up so like you never, oh never, oh never, oh never been built before
Oh honey, once I have you, well you never, never, never walk out that door
Yeah, I ain't lying to you boys

Some folks say rip and run, some folk say believe in signs
But if I'm gonna love you baby, well I got to, oh I got to take my time
'Cause I'm gonna give you everything that no other man could
Oh honey, I'm built for comfort, I ain't lying, I really am that good, yeah, oh yeah
C'mon Kevin, you know all about it

Now I ain't got no diamonds, no I ain't got no gold
But I got everything I need, oh every good lovin' thing I need to fill you up so
Oh honey, oh I'm gonna take you home and fill you up so like it's never do before
Yeah and I'm so damn good, you'll never walk out that door, no, no, no, no
