Bonnie Raitt

Bonnie Lynn Raitt (born November 8, 1949) is a renowned American blues singer-songwriter and slide guitar player. During the 1970s, Raitt released a series of acclaimed roots-influenced albums which incorporated elements of blues, rock, folk and country, but she is perhaps best known for her more commercially accessible recordings in the 1990s including "Nick of Time", "Something to Talk About", "Love Sneakin' Up on You", and the slow ballad "I Can't Make You Love Me". Raitt has received nine Grammy Awards in her career and is a lifelong political activist. more »

I'm down here workin' at my job
But I just can't concentrate
You keep messin' with my mind, baby
Yeah, I'm circlin' round the bait
I got to take off early
I got to get you home
I'm gonna show you little woman
Why a dog loves a bone

I'll be gnawin' on it
I said, gnawin' on it
We'll be gnawin' on it, baby
Ah, nah, nah, girl don't do that

I dropped the kids at school this morning
I hung the clothes in the back
I'm trying to take care of my business, darling
But my mind ain't on the track
You got me feeling kind of squarely
I got to get you in this place
Oh 'cause what I got in mind'll put a grin on your face

We'll be gnawin' on it, honey
I said, gnawin' on it
I'll be gnawin' on it
Ah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah baby don't do that

They say it's hard to keep it going
When you're together for so long
They say combustion's for the youngsters
We should be glad we get along
But they don't know nothin' 'bout it
They way you love me it's a shame
You know there ain't nobody better
Blowin' embers to a flame

We'll be gnawin' on it, baby, that's what we're doing
We're gonna keep gnawin' on it till we get it
Baby come one and 
Nah, nah, nah, oh, nah, nah, nah honey, not like oh
