Jav Rivera : A Tribute To Otis Henry
  • Nevermind My Mind
  • If Mary Knew
  • Nut Up


Nut Up
-->Written by Jav Rivera

Get up and wise up
Get up and wise up
Get up and wise up
Man, you gotta nut up

No one cares what you hate
So find something to love

Get up and wise up
Get up and wise up
Get up and wise up
Man, you gotta nut up

No one wants to fight you
So find something to hug

Get up and wise up
Get up and wise up
Get up and wise up
Man, you gotta nut up



Nevermind My Mind
Written by Otis Henry (from his 1970 self-titled debut album)

-->
Don’t say I’m kind
Don’t come inside
Don’t wait in line
Nevermind my mind

Don’t shine a light
Don’t put aside
Don’t wait for signs
Nevermind your mind

Don’t say I might
Don’t feel obliged
Don’t wait to find
Nevermind my mind



If Mary Knew
Written by Otis Henry (from his 1974 album “Through Wood Land”)

-->
If Glen knew Steve
And Steve knew Mary
And Mary knew me
Then maybe we’d have met
And maybe we’d have laughed
Maybe we’d have kissed
Maybe, maybe, maybe

If Mary was here
And she in my arms
And she in my bed
Then maybe we’d have slept
And maybe we’d have dreamed
Maybe we’d have rest
Maybe, maybe, maybe

And if Mary knew how I felt
Well then maybe, maybe, maybe
