His creative reinvention in the 1970s with disco and funk overtones, saw Watson have hits with "Ain't That a Bitch", "I Need It" and "Superman Lover". His successful recording career spanned forty years, with his biggest hit being the 1977 "A Real Mother For Ya".[2]

Lyrics

 

Wanna buy a new car
But the price ain't right
Be a downside cheaper (yes it would)
Start riding a bike
They're making milk out of powder
Got the baby's crying
Rents gone up higher
Got the parents lying

Lord , its a real mother for ya (yeah)
make you wanna run for cover
And if you look you will discover (yeah)
Lord, its a real mother for ya yeah.

Got to go to a disco
Throw your troubles away
Dance to the music
That the DJ's play
And then the light's come on
Like you knew they would
Go home and face the music
that dont sound to good

Lord, its a real mother for ya (yeah)
make you wanna run for cover
And if you look you will discover (yeah)
Lord, its a real mother for ya yeah.

Lord , its a real mother for ya (yeah)
make you wanna run for cover (yes it will)
And if you look you will discover (yeah)
Lord, its a real mother for ya yeah
its a real mother for ya yeah (ah, get out of here)

To cold

Gimme 3 gallons of low lead

and two hot dogs and a strawberry shake
