Esther Phillips:
“I can stand a little rain
I can stand a little rain
I can stand a little rain
I can stand a little rain.

But when the rain comes to the floorboards
I can stand a little rest.

I can stand a little sorrow
I can stand it until tomorrow
I can stand a little strife
Oh, it’s just another taste of life.

I can stand a little love
Said I can stand a little love
Oh, and when I’m on my last go-round
I can stand a little rest.

[ chimes ]Well, I made it, I made it before, yes!
And I’m gonna make it, yeah, oh my Lord!
I’m gonna make it some more, yeah.
Let me speak on it for a minute, yeah.And all I need is a wee bit of lovin’
And I’m gonna keep on truckin’
And I’m steppin’, I’m steppin’, I’m steppin’
I’m gonna make it some more, yeah.

Well, well, well, well
I said I made it before, yeah
And I’m gonna keep on makin’ it some more!
