Darondo – Didn’t I

Darondo – Didn’t I (Trishe’s edit)
Darondo Pulliam, who performed in the 70s under the name Darondo, was a funk and soul singer who sounded like a combination of Ronald Isley and Al Green. Little known by anyone except serious enthusiasists of that genre, Darondo is highly respected by that limited audience.
He opened-up for James Brown and lived a colorful lifestyle hanging with folks like the notorious Fillmore Slim. The mythology surrounding Darondo is that he was a pimp. However, he denies this claim.

Didn’t I treat you right now
Didn’t I
Didn’t I do the best I could
Didn’t I
Didn’t I give ya everything
Didn’t I
I tried my best just to be around
Didn’t I

Didn’t I do it baby
Didn’t I do right
why you wanna leave me baby
Didn’t I treat you right

I want the better things
Everything, that a woman could need
oh won’t ya come closer and hold
everything was love for me like I want
and back again

Didn’t I
Didn’t I
Didn’t I
Didn’t I
Didn’t I
Didn’t I

There’s something wrong with you
Tell Me
Baby are your troubles dead
You look back, you should be glad
Don’t be mad, I must be glad
Sit down
and let me kiss ya lovely mouth hey

Didn’t I do it baby
Didn’t I do right
why you wanna leave me baby
They say I didn’t treat you right

So much to mean to me
that you don’t know
talk to me
