Don't you worry about what's on my mind
No, I don't want you to think about it
I'm in no hurry, I can take my time
And yes, I always take it

I'm going red and my tongue's getting so tied
You're tired
I'm off my head and my mouth's getting so dry
I'm high and I'm tired

Let's spend the night together, now woman I need you
Oh, woman, I need you more than ever, girl
Let's spend the night together now

I feel so strong that I can't describe
No, you know I can't imagine it
You know I ain't going to apologize
No, I am not going to tell you nothing about it

Don't hand me up and don't you let me down
Down, down
We can have fun, you know
Just moving around somewhere in town

Let's spend the night together now, woman, somewhere
Let's spend the night together, oh, won't you, girl
Let's spend the night together now

Oh, let's spend together a night
Girl, oh, I want you now
You know I need you, I need you, let's spend it
Oh, girl let's spend a night together one time, woman
I want to spend a night with you, girl
I need you now
Yeah, let's spend a night together, woman
We're going to spend a night

Muddy Waters

Muddy Waters, whose birth name was McKinley Morganfield, grew up on a plantation in Mississippi. He was a proficient musician by his adolescence and played guitar at local parties. In chance of fate, Alan Lomax, who had received a grant to travel the countryside and record traditional Southern music for the Library of Congress, recorded Waters in Mississippi in 1941 and returned a year later to continue recording.

In 1943, Waters moved to Chicago and became a full-time musician, eventually signing to Chess Records and releasing a string of hits during the late ‘40s and 1950s, such as “Rolling Stone,” “Hoochie Coochie Man,” “I Just Want to Make Love to You,” and “Mannish Boy.”

Waters' music during this period is best known as Chicago Blues. However, rhythmically and structurally it’s essentially Delta Blues. The primary difference between the two genres is that the instruments, especially the guitar and harmonica, were electrified, giving the genre a powerful, unique, and exciting sound that was a direct precursor to rock & roll. In fact, some argue that when the blues was electrified, rock & roll was created, thus cementing Waters' legacy as a pillar of modern music.
