Shocking Blue - Inkpot Lyrics




Put some love in your heart
Like you put the ink in the inkpot.
Learn it and you will enjoy it baby
To put the ink in the inkpot.
Shoo-bee-doo-wa, shoo-bee-doo-wa.
Shoo-bee-doo-wa, shoo-bee-doo-wa.

You can play with everything,
But you cannot play with your heart.
Foolin' around makes it mean
And then (wop!) I'm feeling that we'll be apart.

Put some love in your heart
Like you put the ink in the inkpot.
Learn it and you will enjoy it baby
To put the ink in the inkpot.
Shoo-bee-doo-wa, shoo-bee-doo-wa.
Shoo-bee-doo-wa, shoo-bee-doo-wa.

Your momma taught you how to pray,
But once you will be a grown-up girl
And what you also have to learn
That (wop!) is how to love somebody in this world.

Put some love in your heart
Like you put the ink in the inkpot.
Learn it and you will enjoy it baby
To put the ink in the inkpot.
Shoo-bee-doo-wa, shoo-bee-doo-wa.
Shoo-bee-doo-wa, shoo-bee-doo-wa.
Shoo-bee-doo-wa, shoo-bee-doo-wa.
Shoo-bee-doo-wa, shoo-bee-doo-wa.

    but what you also have to learn
    that is how to love somebody in this world.

    Put some love in your heart...

    If I were able to go back in time, be a hippie and pick my ultimate hippie chick, it would be MARISKA VERES, She is Beautiful and Sexy and , to me, the Greatest definition of a Hippie Chick there is.

    Roosje Keizer

    She didn't really had the hippie spirit, though. She drank only tea and orange hus, stayed away from drugs and when not on the road sat on the coach at her parents' to watch TV.

    Man,  if she would have some better material after 'Venus', who knows how far her and the band would have gone.  Nearly all of their work after it is really not very good, especially compared with what else was out there.  I could have seen her easily capturing a big part of the US market just from guys who wanted to watch her perform.  But, even her looks and strong voice couldn't overcome the weak material she was given back then.  This is one of the worst 'big time misses' of any group around.  She deserved a bit better than this.  Maybe they'll manage to shake up the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame crowd and get a hearing for Veres leading the way for female performers in the future.

    Carlos Rivera

    what are you talking about? never marry a railroad man, mighty joe, lonesome road, DEMON LOVER! All these songs are AMAZING! they may not have been as commercial as Venus but heck they are just as good if not better! check yourself before giving your opinion dude! check yourself!

    sardu55

    If you read the whole comment I referred to their initial period prior to 1972.  After that they fell off the US charts and were big in Europe.  I was surprised at how iconic the group was in Spain, for example.  However, I'll stick with my beliefs about their music post 1972.  Some of its pretty bad, and was big reason Veres left the group.

    Tom Starr

    who are what did you do in li your so calling life fuck u

    Lisa Lindsey

    There are a few songs after 1971 that you should check out. Time Slips Away, Velvet Heaven, and SO FAR FROM HOME if you haven't already. Those three are my favorite post-Venus songs. All the songs listed above by Carlos Rivera are fantastic. Scorpio's Dance the instrumental is incredible too. Wish they had gotten more airplay in the U.S.

  40. zanmirrob

    Great song! Unbelievably thick hair on Mariska!

    Omar Luna

    +zanmirrob She once said she wore wigs.

    zanmirrob

    @Omar Luna
    Is that right? It would be amazing hair if it is real.

    Omar Luna

    @zanmirrob Of course she had long and thick hair, but she also admitted once that some of the amount and volume was due to wigs. By those years, on the other hand, rinse and moisture cream wasn't often used as today, because thick and voluminous hair was in fashion.

    Shorty Beck

    Mariska actually had hair that thick, but it was extremely curly/frizzy. She wore wigs because she hated her natural hair texture.

  41. PAVIA Kristiansen

    What a great band

  42. Henry N
