About 5-10-15 Hours

"5-10-15 Hours" is a rhythm-and-blues song written by Rudy Toombs in 1952 for Ruth Brown and was one of several number-one R&B hits he wrote for her. Her recording is smooth, sophisticated blues shouting at its best, has a touch of suppliance more characteristic of the vocal qualities of popular singers than of the blues. The recording features a tenor sax solo by Willis Jackson. When Brown was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, her induction said that "her best work was to be found on such red-hot mid-Fifties R&B sides as '5-10-15 Hours'".

Baby baby baby, I've got to have you for my own
Baby baby baby, I've got to have you for my own
If you ever need me baby, call me on the telephone

I wanna love ya love ya love ya, love ya love ya all the time
I wanna love ya love ya love ya, love ya love ya all the time
I wanna love ya love ya baby, if I live to ninety nine

Just give me five, ten, fifteen hours of your love
Just give me five, ten, fifteen hours of your love
Give me fifteen hours while that shiny moon's above

I wanna hold ya hold ya hold ya, hold ya till the broad daylight
I wanna hold ya hold ya hold ya, hold ya till the broad daylight
I wanna thrill ya thrill ya thrill ya till the sun is shinin' bright

So give me five, ten, fifteen hours there with you
So give me five, ten, fifteen hours there with you
Give me fifteen hours and I'll prove my love to you

Well, if you ever think about me, daddy won't you let me know
If you ever think about me, daddy won't you let me know
I'll be your lovin' baby
You can be my so and so

Ooh yeah
