  • Find it, who that? Mercy
    Who that sayin' Mercy? So hot 'n' nasty

    Oh hey Joe, don't forget to shake it
    While you sleepin' on that bed
    You know it really makes it
    Look at me shake a leg, oh

    I got my head in a cloud
    I'm gonna stand out in the crowd
    I wanna sing out loud
    Ooh, got to do it with the feelin'
    Now you gonna hit the ceiling

    Do you get the message?
    Do you get the message?
    Do you get the message?

    Hey boogaloo, I really love you
    Look what you've done to my head
    Take all my time, take all my money
    But most of all you take all my bread

    Oh, I got my head in a cloud, I wanna sing it loud
    I'm gonna stand out in the crowd
    You got to do it with the feelin'
    Well, you gonna hit the ceiling

    Do you get the message?
    Do you get the message?
    Do you get the message?

    Don't forget to shake that thing, do it with the feelin'
    Then you gonna, then you gonna hit the ceiling

    Hot 'n' nasty, hot 'n' nasty, it's hot 'n' nasty
    So hot 'n' nasty, so hot 'n' nasty

  • Paul from Wilton, Ct"Hot n Nasty"

    From the 1972 'Smokin' Album which was released in April 1972.

    "Hot n Nasty' was the #1 Song on the Album, and was highly promoted. It was released as a single in April 1972, and peaked at #52
    in May 1972 on the U.S. Billboard Charts.

    This song stayed on the charts for 7-Weeks.

    This slow-burning Rhythm and Blues song featured an Organ and Piano, and had some Boogaloo Funk mixed in with it's mid-to-fast tempo pace.
    It sounded a bit like a 'Small Faces' song.

    Clem Clempson had replaced Peter Frampton on Guitar in late-September 1971. This was the '1st' Humble Pie album without Peter Frampton.

    * 'Hot n Nasty' was an average song (Studio Album), and it was 'not' overly popular with the hard-rock driving Humble Pie fans in 1972.
  • Paul from Wilton, CtAnother 'Rockin Boogie' song with a Funkaldelic flair by Steve Marriott.

    Released in March 1972 ('Smokin' Album) it hit #52 on the Billboard Charts.

    It was better 'live' and in concert than on the studio Album.

    The Humble Pie hard rock fans did 'not' like this song.

    A 'fair' song at best, and it was quickly forgotten.
