25 Or 6 to 4
Chicago (R. Lamm)

Waiting for the break of day
Searching for something to say
Dancing lights againnst the sky
Giving up I close my eyes
Sitting cross-legged on the floor
25 or 6 to 4

Staring blindly into space
Getting up to splash my face
Wanting just to stay awake
Wondering how much I can take
Should have tried to do some more
25 or 6 to 4

Feeling like I ought to sleep
Spinning room is sinking deep
Searching for something to say
Waiting for the break of day
25 or 6 to 4
25 or 6 to 4

ABRACADABRA
The Steve Miller Band written by Steve Miller

I heat up, I can’t cool down
You got me spinnin’
‘Round and ‘round
‘Round and ‘round and ‘round it goes
Where it stops nobody knows

Every time you call my name
I heat up like a burnin’ flame
Burnin’ flame full of desire
Kiss me baby, let the fire get higher

Abra-abra-cadabra
I want to reach out and grab ya
Abra-abra-cadabra
Abracadabra

You make me hot, you make me sigh
You make me laugh, you make me cry
Keep me burnin’ for your love
With the touch of a velvet glove

Abra-abra-cadabra
I want to reach out and grab ya
Abra-abra-cadabra
Abracadabra

I feel the magic in your caress
I feel magic when I touch your dress
Silk and satin, leather and lace
Black panties with an angel’s face

I see magic in your eyes
I hear the magic in your sighs
Just when I think I’m gonna get away
I hear those words that you always say

Abra-abra-cadabra
I want to reach out and grab ya
Abra-abra-cadabra
Abracadabra

Every time you call my name
I heat up like a burnin’ flame
Burnin’ flame full of desire
Kiss me baby, let the fire get higher

I heat up, I can’t cool down
My situation goes ‘round and ‘round
I heat up, I can’t cool down
My situation goes ‘round and ‘round
I heat up, I can’t cool down
My situation goes ‘round and ‘round

AFRICA
Toto

I hear the drums echoing tonight
But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
She’s coming in 12:30 flight
The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation
I stopped an old man along the way,
Hoping to find some old forgotten words or ancient melodies.
He turned to me as if to say,
‘Hurry boy, it’s waiting there for you.’

It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what’s right
As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serangetti
I seek to cure what’s deep inside, frightened of this thing that I’ve become

It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

—— instrumental break ——

Hurry boy, she’s waiting there for you

It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa, I passed some rains down in Africa
I bless the rains down in Africa, I passed some rains down in Africa
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

Afternoon Delight
The Starland Vocal Band

Gonna find my baby, gonna hold her tight
gonna grab some afternoon delight.
My motto’s always been; when it’s right, it’s right.
Why wait until the middle of a cold dark night.
When everything’s a little clearer in the light of day.
And you know the night is always gonna be there any way.

Sky rockets in flight. Afternoon delight. Afternoon delight.

Thinkin’ of you’s workin’ up my appetite
looking forward to a little afternoon delight.
Rubbin’ sticks and stones together makes the sparks ingite
and the thought of rubbin’ you is getting so exciting.

Sky rockets in flight. Afternoon delight. Afternoon delight.

Started out this morning feeling so polite
I always though a fish could not be caught who wouldn’t bite
But you’ve got some bait a waitin’ and I think I might try nibbling
a little afternoon delight.

Sky rockets in flight. Afternoon delight. Afternoon delight.

Please be waiting for me baby when I come around.
We could make a lot of lovin’ ‘for the sun goes down.

Sky rockets in flight. Afternoon delight. Afternoon delight.

Repeat chorus.

AFTER THE LOVE HAS GONE
Earth, Wind and Fire

For awhile, to love was all we could do
We were young and we knew
In our eyes were alive
Deep inside we knew our love was true
For awhile, we paid no mind to the past
We knew love would last
Every night, something right
Would invite us to begin the day

Something happened along the way
What used to be happy was sad
Something happened along the way
And yesterday was all we had

And, oh, after the love has gone
How could you lead me on
And not let me stay around ?
Oh, oh, oh, after the love has gone
What used to be right is wrong
Can love that’s lost be found ?

For awhile, to love each other with all
We would ever need
Love was strong for so long
Never knew that what was
Wrong, oh, baby, wasn’t right
We tried to find what we had
Till sadness was all we shared
We were scared
This affair would lead our love into

Something happened along the way
Yesterday was all we had
Something happened along the way
What used to be happy is sad
Something happened along the way
Yesterday was all we had
And, oh, after the love has gone
How could you lead me on
And not let me stay around ?
Oh, oh, oh, after the love has gone
What used to be right is wrong
Can love that’s lost be found ?

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, after the love has gone
What used to be right is wrong
Can love that’s lost be found ?

Against The Wind
Bob Seger

It seems like yesterday
But it was long ago
Janey was lovely she was the queen of my nights
There in the darkness with the radio playing low
And the secrets that we shared
The mountains that we moved
Caught like a wildfire out of control
‘Til there was nothing left to burn and nothing left to prove
And I remember what she said to me
How she swore that it never would end
I remember how she held me oh so tight
Wish I didn’t know now what I didn’t know then

Against the wind
We were runnin’ against the wind
We were young and strong, we were runnin’
Against the wind

The years rolled slowly past
And I found myself alone
Surrounded by strangers I thought were my friends
I found myself further and further from my home
And I guess I lost my way
There were oh so many roads
I was living to run and running to live
Never worryied about paying or even how much I owed
Moving eight miles a minute for months at a time
Breaking all of the rules that would bend
I began to find myself searching
Searching for shelter again and again

Against the wind
A little something against the wind
I found myself seeking shelter sgainst the wind

Well those drifter’s days are past me now
I’ve got so much more to think about
Deadlines and commitments
What to leave in, what to leave out

Against the wind
I’m still runnin’ against the wind
I’m older now but still runnin’ against the wind
Well I’m older now and still runnin’
Against the wind
Against the wind
Against the wind

Still runnin’
I’m still runnin’ against the wind
I’m still runnin’
I’m still runnin’ against the wind
Still runnin’
Runnin’ against the wind
Runnin’ against the wind
See the young man run
Watch the young man run
Watch the young man runnin’
He’ll be runnin’ against the wind
Let the cowboys ride
Let the cowboys ride
They’ll be ridin’ against the wind
Against the wind …

AIN’T MISBEHAVIN’
Louis Armstrong Words by Andy Razaf, music by Thomas “Fats” Waller and Harry Brooks

– # 7 in 1929
– from the 1929 musical comedy “Hot Chocolates”, scored by Fats Waller
– also in the more recent Broadway musical “Ain’t Misbehavin'”

No one to talk with
All by myself
No one to walk with
But I’m happy on the shelf
Ain’t misbehavin’
I’m savin’ my love for you

I know for certain
The one I love
I’m through with flirtin’
It’s just you I’m thinkin’ of
Ain’t misbehavin’
I’m savin’ my love for you

Like Jack Horner
In the corner
Don’t go nowhere
What do I care?
Your kisses are worth waitin’ for
Believe me

I don’t stay out late
Don’t care to go
I’m home about eight
Just me and my radio
Ain’t misbehavin’
I’m savin’ my love for you

Ain’t No Sunshine
Michael Jackson

You ever want something
That you know you shouldn´t have
The more you know you shouldn´t have it
The more you want it
And then one day
You get it
And it´s so good to you
But it´s just like my girl
When she´s around me
I just feel so good
So good
But right now I just feel cold
So cold
Right down to my bones ´cause

Hee
Ain´t no sunshine when she´s gone
It´s not warm when she´s away
Ain´t no sunshine when she´s gone
And she always gone to long anytime she goes away, hay?
love this time where shes gone?
if she´s gone to stay
Ain´t no sunshine when she´s gone
And this house just ain´t no ?
Anytime she goes away (anytime she goes away)

hmmm
ooh, no, no, no, no
ooh, no, no, no, no
ooh, no, no, no, no
ooh, no, no

All I need (all I need)
I ought to leave her alone
Ain´t no sunshine when she´s gone (ain´t no sunshine when shes gone)
Ain´t no sunshine when she´s gone (ain´t no sunshine when shes gone)
? ? darkness everyday (? ? darkness everyday)

Ain´t no sunshine when shes gone
And this house just ain´t no ?
Anytime she goes away (anytime she goes away)

Do, do, do, do, do, ooh (ain´t no sun)
Do, do, do, do, do (ain´t no sun)
(no, no, no, no, no, no, no) ooh

Anytime she goes away

Ain´t no sunshine when she´s gone (ain´t no sunshine when she´s gone)

And she´s always gone too long

Anytime she goes away (? ? ? everyday)
Anytime she goes away
Anytime she goes away (ain´t no sunshine when she goes)
Anytime she goes away (ain´t no sunshine when she goes)

THE AIR THAT I BREATHE
The Hollies

If I could make a wish
I think I’d pass
can’t think of anything i need….

no cigarettes, no sleep, no light, no sound
nothing to eat, no books to read
making love with you
has left me peaceful, warm and tired
what more could I ask
there’s nothing left, to be desired
peace came upon me and it leaves me weak
so sleep, silent angel
go to sleep……..

Sometimes
all I need is the air that I breathe
and to love you
all I need is the air that I breathe
just to love you
all I need is the air that I breathe…….

 

Peace came upon me
and it leaves me weak
so sleep silent angel
go to sleep…….

Sometimes
all I need is the air that I breathe
and to love you
all I need is the air that I breathe
yes to love you
all I need is the air that I breathe
just to love you………..

All Along the Watchtower
Jimi Hendrix (Bob Dylan)

There must be some kind of way outta here
said the joker to the thief
There’s too much confusion…
I can’t get no relief

Business men, they drink my wine
Plowman dig my earth
None were level on the mind
Nobody up at his word
hey, hey

No reason to get excited
The thief he kindly spoke
There are many here among us
Who feel that life is but a joke
But, uh…but you and I, we’ve been through that
And this is not our fate
So let us stop talkin’ falsely now
The hour’s getting late, hey

All along the watchtower
Princes kept the view
While all the women came and went
Barefoot servants, too
Outside in the cold distance
A wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching
And the wind began to howl

All By Myself
Eric Carmen

When I was young
I never needed anyone
And makin’ love was just for fun
Those days are gone

Livin’ alone
I think of all the friends I’ve known
But when I dial the telephone
Nobody’s home

All by myself
Don’t wanna be, all by myself anymore
All by myself
Don’t wanna live, all by myself anymore

Hard to be sure
Some times I feel so insecure
And love so distant and obscure
Remains the cure

All I Ask Of You
Barbra Streisand

No more talk to darkness
Forget these wide-eyed fears
I’m here
Nothing can harm you
My words will warm and calm you
Let me be your freedom
Let daylight dry your tears
I’m here
With you, beside you
To guard you and to guide you

Say you love me every winter morning
Turn my head with talk of summertime
Say you need me with you now and always
Promise me that all you say is true
That’s all I ask of you

Let me be your shelter
Let me be your light
You’re safe
No one will find you
Your fears are far behind you

All I want is freedom
A world with no more night
And you
Always beside me
To hold me and to hide me
Then say you’ll share with me one love,
One lifetime
Let me lead you from your solitude
Say you need me with you,
Here beside you
Anywhere you go, let me go too
Christine that’s all I ask of you

Say you’ll share with me one love, one lifetime
Say the word and I will follow you
Share each day with me,
Each night, each morning
Say you love me (You know I do)
Love me
That’s all I ask of you

Anywhere you go, let me go too
Love me
That’s all I ask of you

ALL I WANNA DO IS MAKE LOVE TO YOU
HEART (Robert John “Mutt” Lange)

It was a rainy night when he came into sight
Standing by the road, no umbrella, no coat
So I pulled up along side and I offered him a ride
He accepted with a smile so we drove for a while
I didn’t ask him his name, this lonely boy in the rain
Fate tell me it’s right, is this love at first sight
Please don’t make it wrong, just stay for the night
All I wanna do is make love to you
Say you will you want me too
All I wanna do is make love to you
I’ve got lovin’ arms to hold on to

So we found this hotel, it was a place I knew well
We made magic that night. Oh, he did everything right
He brought the woman out of me, so many times, easily
And in the morning when he woke all I left him was a note
I told him I am the flower you are the seed
We walked in the garden we planted a tree
Don’t try to find me, please don’t you dare
Just live in my memory, you’ll always be there

All I wanna do is make love to you
One night of love was all we knew
All wanna do is make love to you
I’ve got lovin’ arms to hold on to

Oh, oooh, we made love
Love like strangers
All night long
We made love

Then it happened one day, we came round the same way
You can imagine his surprise when he saw his own eyes
I said please, please understand
I’m in love with another man
And what he couldn’t give me
was the one little thing that you can

All I wanna do is make love to you
One night of love was all we knew
All I want to do is make love to you
Come on, say you will, you want me too

All I wanna do is make love to you
One night of love was all we knew
All I want to do is make love to you
Say you will, you want me too

All night long …

ALL OUT OF LOVE
Air Supply (Graham Russell/Clive Davis)

I’m lying alone with my head on the phone
Thinking of you till it hurts
I know you hurt too but what else can we do
Tormented and torn apart
I wish I could carry your smile and my heart
For times when my life feels so low
It would make me believe what tomorrow could bring
When today doesn’t really know, doesn’t really know

Chorus:
I’m all out of love, I’m so lost without you
I know you were right believing for so long
I’m all out of love, what am I without you
I can’t be too late to say that I was so wrong

I want you to come back and carry me home
Away from this long lonely nights
I’m reaching for you, are you feeling it too
Does the feeling seem oh so right
And what would you say if I called on you now
And said that I can’t hold on
There’s no easy way, it gets harder each day
Please love me or I’ll be gone, I’ll be gone

Chorus

Oh, what are you thinking of?
What are you thinking of?
Oh, what are you thinking of?
What are you thinking of?

Chorus(3x)

Alone Again (Naturally)
Gilbert O’Sullivan Words and Music by Raymond O’Sullivan

-the # 8 song of the 1970-1979 rock era
-was # 1 for 6 weeks in 1972

In a little while from now
If I’m not feeling any less sour
I promise myself to treat myself
And visit a nearby tower
And climbing to the top will throw myself off
In an effort to make it clear to whoever
What it’s like when you’re shattered
Left standing in the lurch at a church
Where people saying: “My God, that’s tough”
“She stood him up”
“No point in us remaining”
“We may as well go home”
As I did on my own
Alone again, naturally

To think that only yesterday
I was cheerful, bright and gay
Looking forward to who wouldn’t do
The role I was about to play?
But as if to knock me down
Reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch
Cut me into little pieces
Leaving me to doubt
Talk about God in His mercy
Who if He really does exist
Why did He desert me?
In my hour of need
I truly am indeed
Alone again, naturally

It seems to me that there are more hearts
Broken in the world that can’t be mended
Left unattended
What do we do? What do we do?

 

Alone again, naturally

Looking back over the years
And whatever else that appears
I remember I cried when my father died
Never wishing to hide the tears
And at sixty-five years old
My mother, God rest her soul
Couldn’t understand why the only man
She had ever loved had been taken
Leaving her to start with a heart so badly broken
Despite encouragement from me
No words were ever spoken
And when she passed away
I cried and cried all day
Alone again, naturally
Alone again, naturally

American Woman
The Guess Who
Written by Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, Jim Kale and Garry Peterson

– peaked at #1 in 1970
— Lead Guitar —

American Woman, stay away from me
American Woman, mama let me be
Don’t come a hangin’ around my door
I don’t wanna see your face no more
I got more important things to do
Than spend my time growin’ old with you
Now Woman, I said stay away
American Woman, listen what I say-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay

— Lead Guitar —

American Woman, get away from me
American Woman, mama let me be
Don’t come a knockin’ around my door
Don’t wanna see your shadow no more
Coloured lights can hypnotize
Sparkle someone else’s eyes
Now Woman, I said get away
American Woman, listen what I say-ay-ay-ay

— Lead Guitar Solo —

American Woman, said get away
American Woman, listen what I say
Don’t come a hangin’ around my door
Don’t wanna see your face no more
I don’t need your war machines
I don’t need your ghetto scenes
Coloured lights can hypnotize
Sparkle someone else’s eyes
Now Woman, get away from me
American Woman, mama let me be

Go, gotta get away, gotta get away now go, go, go
I’m gonna leave you woman
Gonna leave you woman
Bye-bye Bye-bye Bye-bye Bye-bye
You’re no good for me
I’m no good for you
Gonna look you right in the eye
Tell you what I’m gonna do
You know I’m gonna leave
You know I’m gonna go
You know I’m gonna leave
You know I’m gonna go-o, woman
I’m gonna leave you woman
Goodbye American Woman
Goodbye American chick
Angie
The Rolling Stones

Angie, Angie
When will those clouds all disappear
Angie, Angie
Where will it lead us from here

With no lovin’ in our souls
And no money in our coats
You can’t say we’re satisfied
Angie, Angie
You can’t say we never tried

Angie, you’re beautiful, yeah
But ain’t it time we said goodbye
Angie, I still love you
Remember all those nights we cried

All the dreams we held so close
Seemed to all go up in smoke
Let me whisper in your ear
(whispered): Angie, Angie
Where will it lead us from here

—— instrumental interlude ——

Oh Angie don’t you weep
Or your kisses, they’ll taste sweet
I hate that sadness in your eyes
But Angie, Angie
Ain’t it time we said goodbye

—— instrumental interlude ——

With no lovin’ in our souls
And no money in our coats
You can’t say we’re satisfied
But Angie, I still love you baby
Everywhere I look I see your eyes
There ain’t a woman that comes close to you
Come on baby dry your eyes

Angie, Angie
Ain’t it good to be alive
Angie, Angie
They can’t say we never tried

Angie Baby
Helen Reddy

You live your life in the songs you hear
on the rock and roll radio.
And when a young girl doesn’t have any friends
that’s a really nice place to go.
Folks hoping you’d turn out cool
but they had to take you outta school.
You’re a little touched you know, Angie Baby.

Lovers appear in your room each night
and they whirl you across the floor.
But they always seem to fade away
when your daddy taps on your door.
Angie girl, are you all right?
Tell the radio good-night.
All alone once more, Angie Baby.

Angie Baby, you’re a special lady.
Living in a world of make-believe.
Well, maybe.

Stopping at her house is a neighbor boy
with evil on his mind.
‘Cause he’s been peeking in Angie’s room
at night through the window blind.
I see your folks have gone away.
Would you dance with me today?
I’ll show you how to have a good time, Angie Baby.

When he walks in the room, he feels confused
like he’s walked into a play.
And the music’s so loud it spins him around
‘til his soul has lost it’s way.
And as she turns the volume down
he’s getting smaller with the sound.
It seems to pull him off the ground.
Toward the radio he’s bound never to be found.

The headlines read that a boy disappeared
and everyone thinks he died.
‘Cept a crazy girl with a secret lover who
keeps her satisfied.
It’s so nice to be insane.
No one asks you to explain.
Radio by your side, Angie Baby.

Angie Baby, you’re a special lady
living in a world of make-believe.
Well, maybe. Well, maybe.
Another Day in Paradise
Phil Collins

She calls out to the man on the street
‘Sir, can you help me ?’
‘it’s cold, and I’ve nowhere to sleep.
is there somewhere you can tell me ?’

He walks on, doesn’t look back,
he pretends he can’t hear her
starts to whistle as he crosses the street
seems embarrased to be there.

Oh think twice, it’s another day for
you and me in paradise
Oh think twice, it’s just another day for you,
you and me in paradise

She calls out to the man on the street
he can see she’s been crying
she’s got blisters on the soles of her feet
she can’t walk, but she’s trying

Oh think twice …..

Oh Lord, is there nothing more anybody can do
Oh Lord, there must be something you can say

You can tell from the lines on her face
you can see that she’s been there
probably been moved on from every place
‘cos she didn’t fit in there

Oh think twice …..
Another One Bites the Dust
Queen

Steve walks warily down the street,
with the brim pulled way down low
Ain’t no sound but the sound of his feet,
machine guns ready to go

Are you ready,
Are you ready for this
Are you hanging on the edge of your seat
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
To the sound of the beat

Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
And another one gone, and another one gone
Another one bites the dust
Hey, I’m gonna get you too
Another one bites the dust

How do you think I’m going to get along,
without you, when you’re gone
You took me for everything that I had,
and kicked me out on my own

Are you happy, are you satisfied
How long can you stand the heat
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
To the sound of the beat

Chorus

Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
There are plenty of ways you can hurt a man
And bring him to the ground
You can beat him
You can cheat him
you can treat him bad and leave him
When he’s down
But I’m ready, yes I’m ready for you
I’m standing on my own two feet
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
repeating the sound of the beat
Another Park, Another Sunday
Doobie Brothers

As I’m sitting in my room staring out the window
I’m wondering where you’ve gone
Thinking back ‘bout the happy hours just before the dawn
Outside the wind is blowing……
it seems to call your name Again
Where have you gone

City streets and lonely highways I’ve traveled down
My car is empty
And the radio just seems to bring me down
I’m just tryin’ to find me a pretty smile that I can get into
It’s true
I’m lost without you

(Chorus)
Another lonely park, another Sunday
(Another lonely day)
Why is it life turns out that way
(It just turns out that way)
Just when you think you’ve got a good thing
It seems to slip away

It’s warm outside, no clouds are in the sky
But I need myself a place to go and hide
I keep it to myself…… I don’t want nobody else
To see me cryin’ all those tears in my eyes

(Chorus)

Another park, another Sunday
It’s dark and empty thanks to you
I’ve got to get myself together
But it’s hard to do

ANOTHER RAINY DAY IN NEW YORK CITY
Chicago
Words and music by Robert Lamm
Lead vocal by Peter Cetera

Another rainy day in New York City
Softly sweet, so silently it falls
As crosstown traffic crawls

Memories in my way in New York City
Tender, tough, too tragic to be true
And nothing i can do

City workers cheer
The taxis disappear
Another rainy day in New York City

Another spacey stay in New York city
High up in an overpriced hotel
The view is really swell

Windy, wet and gray in New york City
No one here i really want to see
Old friends and family

So suddenly serene
The air is fresh and clean
Another rainy day in New York City

AN OLD FASHIONED LOVE SONG
Three Dog Night

Just an old fashioned love song
Playing on the radio
And wrapped around the music
is the sound of someone promising they’ll never go.
You’ll swear you’ve heard it before
As it slowly rambles on and on.
No need in bringing em back
Cause they’ve never really gone.
Just an old fashioned love song
Coming down in three part harmony.
Just an old fashioned love song
One I’m sure they wrote for you and me,
To weave our dreams upon and
Listen to each evening when the light are low.
To underscore our love affair
With tenderness and feeling
That we’ve come to know.
You’ll swear you’ve heard it before
As it slowly rambles on and on.
No need in bringing em back
Cause they’ve never really gone.
Just an old fashioned love song
Coming down in three part harmony.
Just an old fashioned love song
One I’m sure they wrote for you and me.

Bad Girl
Madonna written by M. Ciccone and S. Pettibone

Something’s missing and I don’t know why
I always feel the need to hide my feelings from you
Is it me or you that I’m afraid of
I tell myself I’ll show you what I’m made of
Can’t bring myself to let you go

Bridge (first time without first “I”):

I don’t want to cause you any pain
But I love you just the same
And you’ll always be my baby
In my heart I know we’ve come apart
And I don’t know where to start
What can I do, I don’t wanna feel blue

Chorus1:

Bad girl drunk by six
Kissing someone else’s lips
Smoked too many cigarettes today
I’m not happy when I act this way

Chorus2:

Bad girl drunk by six
Kissing some kind stranger’s lips
Smoked too many cigarettes today
I’m not happy, I’m not happy

Something’s happened and I can’t go back
I fall apart every time you hand your heart out to me
What happens now, I know I don’t deserve you
I wonder how I’m ever gonna hurt you
Can’t bring myself to let you go

(bridge)
(chorus1)
(chorus2)
This way

(bridge)
(chorus1, repeat)
I’m not happy this way
(chorus1)
(chorus2, substituting “someone else’s” for “some kind stranger’s”)
This way

I’m not happy this way
Kissing some kind stranger’s lips

Opened it up [Opened it up], opened it up [Opened it up]
Guess, what I saw, huh?
Saw the President of the United States, huh
The man said he was gonna give it up
He’s giving us high hopes
But he still turned around and left all us poor folks behind
They say they got another man to take his place
But I don’t think they need to satisfy the human race
Bad luck, huh
Bad luck, bad luck, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey

BAD TIME
Grand Funk Railroad (Mark Farner)

I’m in love with a girl that I’m talking about
I’m in love with a girl I can’t live without
I’m in love but I sure picked a bad time
To be in love, to be in love

Well, let her be someone else’s queen
I don’t want to know about it
There’s too many others that know what I mean
And that’s why I’ve got to live without it
I’m in love with a girl I’m talking about
I’m in love with a girl I can’t live without
I’m in love but I feel like I’m wearing it out
I’m in love but I must have picked a bad time to be in love
A bad time to be in love, a bad time to be in love
A bad time to be in love

Well, the stories crawling back to me
>From my friends and the people that I wanna see
The things they say I know just couldn’t be true
At least not until I hear it from you
‘Cause I still the little girl, I’m talking about
I’m in love with a girl I can’t live without
I’m in love but I feel like I’m wearing it out
I’m in love but I must have picked a bad time to be in love
A bad time to be in love, a bad time to be in love

You know that I love the little girl I’m talking about
I’m in love with a girl I can’t live without
I’m in love but it feels like I’m wearing it out
I’m in love but I must have picked a bad time to be in love
A bad time to be in love, a bad time to be in love
A bad time to be in love

Ballroom Blitz
Sweet

Are you ready, Steve? Aha.
Andy? Yeah! Mick? OK.
Alright, fellas, let’s go!
Oh it’s been getting so hard
Livin’ with the things you do to me, aha
Oh my dreams are getting so strange
I’d like to tell you everything I see
Oh, I see a man at the back
As a matter of fact his eyes are red as the sun
And a girl in the corner let no one ignore her
‘Cause she thinks she’s the passionate one
Oh, yeah, it was like lightning, everybody was frightening
And the music was soothing, and they all started grooving
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
And the man at the back said
Everyone attack and it turned into a ballroom blitz
And the girl in the corner said
Boy, I wanna warn ya, it’ll turn into a ballroom blitz
Ballroom blitz, ballroom blitz, ballroom blitz
Ballroom blitz
I’m reaching out for something
Touching nothing’s all I ever do
Oh, I softly call you over
When you appear there’s nothing left of you, aha
Now the man in the back
Is ready to crack as he raises his hands to the sky
And the girl in the corner is ev’ryone’s mourner
She could kill you with a wink of her eye
Oh yeah, it was electric, so frightfully hectic
And the band started leaving, ‘cause they all stopped breathing
Refrain
Oh yeah, it was like lightning, everybody was frightening
And the music was soothing, and they all started grooving
Refrain
It’s it’s a ballroom blitz, it’s it’s a ballroom blitz
It’s it’s a ballroom blitz, yeah, it’s a ballroom blitz

Bat Out of Hell
Meat Loaf

The sirens are screaming, and the fires are howling
Way down in the valley tonight.
There’s a man in the shadows with a gun in his eye
And a blade shining oh so bright.
There’s evil in the air and there’s thunder in the sky,
And a killer’s on the bloodshot streets.
And down in the tunnels where the deadly are rising
Oh, I swear I saw a young boy down in the gutter
He was starting to foam in the heat.

PRE-CHORUS
Oh, baby you’re the only thing in this whole world
That’s pure and good and right.
And wherever you are and wherever you go
There’s always gonna be some light,
But I gotta get out, I gotta break out now
Before the final crack of dawn.
So we gotta make the most of our one night together
When it’s over, you know,
We’ll both be so alone.

CHORUS
Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone when the morning comes.
When the night is over, like a bat out of hell, I’ll be gone, gone, gone.
Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone when the morning comes.
But when the day is done
and the sun goes down
and the moonlight’s shining through.
Then like a sinner before the gates of Heaven
I’ll come crawling on back to you.

I’m gonna hit the highway like a battering ram
On a silver-black phantom bike.
When the metal is hot, and the engine is hungry
And we’re all about to see the light.
Nothing ever grows in this rotting old hole,
And everything is stunted and lost.
And nothing really rocks, and nothing really rolls,
And nothing’s ever worth the cost.

Well I know that I’m damned if I never get out,
And maybe I’m damned if I do,
But with every other beat I’ve got left in my heart,
You know I wanna be damned with you.
If I gotta be damned, you know I wanna be damned
Dancing through the night with you/
Well if I gotta be damned, you know I wanna be damned,
Gotta be damned, you know I wanna be damned
Gotta be damned, you know I wanna be damned
Dancing through the night,
Dancing through the night,
Dancing through the night with you

PRE-CHORUS

CHORUS

Well I can see myself tearing up the road
Faster than any other boy has ever gone.
And my skin is raw, but my soul is ripe,
And no one’s gonna stop me now, I’m gonna make my escape.
But I can’t stop thinking of you,
And I never see the sudden curve until it’s way too late.
And I never see the sudden curve until it’s way too late.

Then I’m down in the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun,
Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike,
And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell.
And the last thing I see is my heart, still beating,
Breaking out of my body and flying away
Like a bat out of hell.

Then I’m down in the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun,
Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike,
And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell.
And the last thing I see is my heart,
Still beating..still beating…
Breaking out of my body, and flying away
Like a bat out of hell.
Like a bat out of hell.
Like a bat out of hell…
Like a bat out of hell.
Like a bat out of hell.
Like a bat out of hell……..

Beat It
Michael Jackson.

They told him don’t you ever come around here
Don’t wanna see your face, you better disappear
The fire’s in their eyes and their words are really clear
So beat it, just beat it

You better run, you better do what you can
Don’t wanna see no blood, don’t be a macho man
You wanna be tough, better do what you can
So beat it, but you wanna be bad

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right
Just beat it, beat it
Just beat it, beat it
Just beat it, beat it
Just beat it, beat it

They’re out to get you, better leave while you can
Don’t wanna be a boy, you wanna be a man
You wanna stay alive, better do what you can
So beat it, just beat it

You have to show them that you’re really not scared
You’re playin’ with your life, this ain’t no truth or dare
They’ll kick you, then they beat you,
Then they’ll tell you it’s fair
So beat it, but you wanna be bad

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right
Just beat it, beat it
Beat it, beat it, beat it

Beginnings

– Here are the words to Beginnings, by Chicago (actually known as
Chicago Transit Authority at the time this was released in 1969,
on the album of the same name)
– Words and music by Robert Lamm
– Note: there are no rhymes at all in this song

When I’m with you,
It doesn’t matter where we are,
Ot what we’re doing,
I’m with you that’s all that matters

Time pases much too quickly
When we’re together laughing
I wish I could sing it to you. whoa-oh
Wish I could sing it to you

Wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-oah
Wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-oah
Mostly I’m silent
Silent
Try and think of the right words to say

Whe I kiss you,
I get a thousand different feelings,
A cover of chills
All over my body.
And when I fell them,
I quickly try to decide which one
I should try to put into words, woah-oh
Try to put into words

Wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-oah
Wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-oah
Mostly I’m silent
Silent
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
Silent

Only the beginnging
Of what I want to feel forever
Yes, only the beginning
Only just the start
I’ve got to get you into my life, mama
Got to get you next to me
Yes, only the beginnging,
Only just the start
Hey-hey-hey-hey-hey-hey-hey
Oh, all right

BLACK AND WHITE
Three Dog Night in 1972
– words by David Arkin, music by Earl Robinson, © 1956

The ink is black, the page is white
Together we learn to read and write
A child is black, a child is white
The whole world looks upon the sight, a beautiful sight

And now a child can understand
That this is the law of all the land, all the land

The world is black, the world is white
It turns by day and then by night
A child is black, a child is white
Together they grow to see the light, to see the light

And now at last we plainly see
We’ll have a dance of Liberty, Liberty!

The world is black, the world is white
It turns by day and then by night
A child is black, a child is white
The whole world looks upon the sight, a beautiful sight

The world is black, the world is white
It turns by day and then by night
A child is black, a child is white
Together they grow to see the light, to see the light

The world is black, the world is white
It turns by day and then by night
A child is black, a child is white
The whole world looks upon the sight, a beautiful sight

The world is black, the world is white
It turns by day and then by night
A child is black, a child is white
Together they grow to see the light, to see the light

C’mon, get it, get it
Ohh-ohhhh, yeah, yeah
Keep it up now, around the world
Little boys and little girls
Yeah, yeah-eah, oh-ohhh

Born in the U.S.A.
Bruce Springsteen

Born down in a dead man’s town
The first kick I took was when I hit the ground
You end up like a dog that’s been beat too much
Till you spend half your life just covering up

CHORUS
Born in the U.S.A.
I was born in the U.S.A.
I was born in the U.S.A.
Born in the U.S.A.

Got in a little hometown jam
So they put a rifle in my hand
Sent me off to a foreign land
To go and kill the yellow man

CHORUS

Come back home to the refinery
Hiring man says, “Son if it was up to me.”
Went down to see my V.A. man
He said, “Son, don’t you understand now.”

Had a brother at Khe Sahn
Fighting off the Viet Cong
They’re still there he’s all gone

He had a woman he loved in Saigon
I got a picture of him in her arms now

Down in the shadow of the penitentiary
Out by the gas fires of the refinery
I’m ten years burning down the road
Now here to run ain’t got nowhere to go

CHORUS

I’m a long gone Daddy in the U.S.A.
Born in the U.S.A.
Born in the U.S.A.
Born in the U.S.A.
I’m a cool rocking Daddy in the U.S.A.

Born To Be Alive
Patrick Hernandez
Music & Lyrics : Patrick Hernandez

We were born to be alive
We were born to be alive
Born born to be alive
Born born to be alive
Born born to be alive
Yes we were born born born
Born born to be alive

Time was on my side
When i was running down the street
It was no bind bind bind
A suitcase and an old guitar
It’s all i need to occupy
A mind like mine

Yes we were born born
Born to be alive
Born to be alive
Yes we were born born
Born to be alive

People ask me why
I never find a place to stop
And settle down down down
I never wanted all those things
People need to justify
Their life life life

Yes we were born born
Born to be alive
Born to be alive
Yes we were born born
Born to be alive

Its good to be alive X3
Its good to be alive X3
Its good to be alive

Born To Be Wild
Steppenwolf

Get your motor running
Head out on the highway
Lookin’ for adventure
In whatever comes our way

Here and god are gonna’ make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once and
Explode into space

I like smoke and lightning
Heavy metal thunder
Racin’ with the wind
And the feeling that that I’m under

Like a true nature’s child
We were born, born to be wild
We can climb so high
I never want to die
Born to be wild

Born To Wander
Rare Earth Tom Baird

There’s nothin’ you can do girl,
There’s nothin’ you can say.
You’re talkin’ to the sky girl,
I just got to get away.
Got to hear the wind song
Singin’ in my ear.
Got to get it on girl
And I’ll never make it here.

‘Cos the wind was my mother,
The highway is my brother.
I was born to wander,
And it’s time for movin’ on.
I was born to wander,
Turn around and I’ll be gone, gone, gone.

I’m just followin’ my heart girl,
And it’s followin’ the sun.
Lookin’ for an answer
I know may never come,
But I gotta chase my dreams girl,
Like a river to the sea,
Got to find a rainbow,
That’s waitin’ there for me.

‘Cos the wind was my mother,
The highway is my brother.
I was born to wander,
And it’s time for movin’ on.
I was born to wander,
Turn around and I’ll be gone, gone, gone.

(dooda-dit-dooda), (dit-dooda-dit-dooda)

There’s a port on a western bay
And it serves a hundred ships a day
Lonely sailors pass the time away
And talk about their homes

And there’s a girl in this harbor town
And she works layin’ whiskey down
They say “Brandy, fetch another round”
She serves them whiskey and wine

The sailors say “Brandy, you’re a fine girl” (you’re a fine girl)
“What a good wife you would be” (such a fine girl)
“Yeah your eyes could steal a sailor from the sea”
(dooda-dit-dooda), (dit-dooda-dit-dooda-dit)

Brandy wears a braided chain
Made of finest silver from the North of Spain
A locket that bears the name
Of the man that Brandy loves

He came on a summer’s day
Bringin’ gifts from far away
But he made it clear he couldn’t stay
No harbor was his home

The sailor said ” Brandy, you’re a fine girl” (you’re a fine girl)
“What a good wife you would be” (such a fine girl)
“But my life, my lover, my lady is the sea”
(dooda-dit-dooda), (dit-dooda-dit-dooda-dit)

Yeah, Brandy used to watch his eyes
When he told his sailor stories
She could feel the ocean foam rise
She saw its ragin’ glory
But he had always told the truth, lord, he was an honest man
And Brandy does her best to understand
(dooda-dit-dooda), (dit-dooda-dit-dooda-dit)

At night when the bars close down
Brandy walks through a silent town
And loves a man who’s not around
She still can hear him say

She hears him say ” Brandy, you’re a fine girl” (you’re a fine girl)
“What a good wife you would be” (such a fine girl)
“But my life, my lover, my lady is the sea”
(dooda-dit-dooda), (dit-dooda-dit-dooda-dit)

“Brandy, you’re a fine girl” (you’re a fine girl)

Breaking Up Is Hard To Do
Neil Sedaka (N.Sedaka/H.Greenfield)

Don’t take your love away from me
Don’t you leave my heart in misery
If you go then I’ll be blue
‘Cause breaking up his hard to do

Remember when you held me tight
And you kissed me all through the night
Think of all that we’ve been through
Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

They say that breaking up is hard to do
Now I know, I know that it’s true
Don’t say that this is the end
Instead of breaking up I wish that we were making up again

I beg of you, don’t say goodbye
Can’t we give our love another try
Come on baby, let’s start a new
‘Cause breaking up is hard to do

She’s the one, the only one,
who’s built like a amazon [pronounced am-a-ka-zawn]
We’re together everybody knows,

1. She knows she got everything
a woman needs to get a man, yeah.
How can she use, the things she use
36-24-36, what a winning hand!

She knows she’s built and knows how to please
Sure enough to knock a man to his knees

California Girls
The Beach Boys Brian Wilson/(Mike Love uncredited lyricist)

Well East coast girls are hip
I really dig those styles they wear
And the Southern girls with the way they talk
They knock me out when I’m down there

The Mid-West farmer’s daughters really make you feel alright
And the Northern girls with the way they kiss
They keep their boyfriends warm at night

I wish they all could be California
I wish they all could be California
I wish they all could be California girls

The West coast has the sunshine
And the girls all get so tanned
I dig a french bikini on Hawaii island
Dolls by a palm tree in the sand

I been all around this great big world
And I seen all kinds of girls
Yeah, but I couldn’t wait to get back in the states
Back to the cutest girls in the world

I wish they all could be California
I wish they all could be California
I wish they all could be California girls

I wish they all could be California
(Girls, girls, girls yeah I dig the)
I wish they all could be California

The stars won’t come out if they know that you’re about
Cause they couldn’t match the glow of your eyes
And, oh, who am I ? Just an ordinary guy
Tryin hard to win me first prize

CHORUS:
Oh my Candida
We could make it together
The further from here girl the better
Where the air is fresh and clean
Oh my Candida
Just take my hand and I’ll lead ya
I promise that life will be sweeter
‘Cause it said so in my dreams

The future looks bright, the gypsy told me so last night
Said she saw our children playing in the sunshine
And there were you and I in a house, baby, no lie
And all these things were yours, and they were mine

Chorus

Chorus

Candle In The Wind
Elton John

Goodbye Norma Jean
Though I never knew you at all
You had the grace to hold yourself
While those around you crawled
They crawled out of the woodwork
And they whispered into your brain
They set you on the treadmill
And they made you change your name

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing who to cling to
When the rain set in
And I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a kid
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did

Loneliness was tough
The toughest role you ever played
Hollywood created a superstar
And pain was the price you paid
Even when you died
Oh the press still hounded you
All the papers had to say
Was that Marilyn was found in the nude

Goodbye Norma Jean
From the young man in the 22nd row
Who sees you as something as more than sexual
More than just our Marilyn Monroe

Can’t Fight This Feelling
REO Speedwagon

I can’t fight this feeling any longer.
And yet I’m still afraid to let it flow.
What started out as friendship,
Has grown stronger.
I only wish I had the strength to let it show.

I tell myself that I can’t hold out forever.
I said there is no reason for my fear.
Cause I feel so secure when we’re together.
You give my life direction,
You make everything so clear.

And even as I wander,
I’m keeping you in sight.
You’re a candle in the wind,
On a cold, dark winter’s night.
And I’m getting closer than I ever thought I might.

And I can’t fight this feeling anymore.
I’ve forgotten what I started fighting for.
It’s time to bring this ship into the shore,
And throw away the oars, forever.

Cause I can’t fight this feeling anymore.
I’ve forgotten what I started fighting for.
And if I have to crawl upon the floor,
Come crushing through your door,
Baby, I can’t fight this feeling anymore.

My life has been such a whirlwind since I saw you.
I’ve been running round in circles in my mind.
And it always seems that I’m following you, girl,
Cause you take me to the places,
That I’d known I’d never find.

And even as I wander,
I’m keeping you in sight.
You’re a candle in the wind,
On a cold, dark winter’s night.
And I’m getting closer than I ever thought I might.

And I can’t fight this feeling anymore.
I’ve forgotten what I started fighting for.
It’s time to bring this ship into the shore,
And throw away the oars, forever.

Cause I can’t fight this feeling anymore.
I’ve forgotten what I started fighting for.
And if I have to crawl upon the floor,
Come crushing through your door,
Baby, I can’t fight this feeling anymore.

Can’t Help Falling in Love
Elvis Presley
(words & music by George Weiss – Hugo Peretti – Luigi Creatore)

Wise men say only fools rush in
but I can’t help falling in love with you
Shall I stay
would it be a sin
If I can’t help falling in love with you

Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
some things are meant to be
take my hand, take my whole life too
for I can’t help falling in love with you

Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
some things are meant to be
take my hand, take my whole life too
for I can’t help falling in love with you
for I can’t help falling in love with you

Can’t Smile Without You

-Artist: Barry Manilow as sung on “Greatest Hits” -Arista A2L 8601
-peak Billboard position # 3 in 1978
-Words and Music by Chris Arnold, David Martin, and Geoff Morrow

 

You know I can’t smile without you
I can’t smile without you
I can’t laugh and I can’t sing
I’m findin’ it hard to do anything

You see I feel sad when you’re sad
I feel glad when you’re glad
If you only knew what I’m goin’ through
I just can’t smile without you

You came along just like a song
And brightened my day
Who’da believed that you were part of a dream?
Now it all seems light years away

And now you know I can’t smile without you
I can’t smile without you
I can’t laugh and I can’t sing
I’m findin’ it hard to do anything

You see, I feel sad when you’re sad
I feel glad when you’re glad
If you only knew what I’m goin’ through
I just can’t smile without you

Now some people say happiness takes so very long to find
Well I’m finding it hard leavin’ your love behind me

And you see I can’t smile without you
I can’t smile without you
I can’t laugh and I can’t sing
I’m findin’ it hard to do anything

You see I feel glad when you’re glad
I feel sad when you’re sad
If you only knew what I’m goin’ through
I just can’t smile without you…

Can’t Take My Eyes Off You
Frankie Valli And The Four Seasons

You’re just too good to be true.
Can’t take my eyes off you.
You’d be like heaven to touch.
I wanna hold you so much.
At long last love has arrived.
And I thank God I’m alive.
You’re just too good to be true.
Can’t take my eyes off you.

Pardon the way that I stare.
There’s nothing else to compare.
The sight of you leaves me weak.
There are no words left to speak.
But if you feel like I feel.
Please let me know that it’s real.
You’re just too good to be true.
Can’t take my eyes off you.

I love you baby, and if it’s quite all right,
I need you baby to warm the lonely night.
I love you baby.
Trust in me when I say:
Oh pretty baby, don’t bring me down, I pray.
Oh pretty baby, now that I found you. Stay.

And let me love you, baby. Let me love you …

I love you baby, and if it’s quite allright,
I need you baby to warm the lonely night.
I love you baby.
Trust in me when I say:
Oh pretty baby, don’t bring me down, I pray.
Oh pretty baby, now that I found you. Stay.

Oh pretty baby. Trust in me when I say: Oh pretty baby …

Can I Touch You…There?
Michael Bolton Album: Greatest Hits

Oooh, Baby, show me what you feel
Come to me, show me something real
I need to know, and I need you completely
Closer, baby, closer.
Come on closer, baby, oh love is takin’ over
Got to let it in.

1-Ooooh, and I need to feel the heart of you
I need to reach the very deepest part of you

2-Can I touch you there, touch you deep inside?
Can I touch your heart the way you’re touchin’ mine?
Can I touch you there?
Touch you deep within? oh
Oooh. Oooh.
Can I touch you there? Can I touch you oh-oh there

Ooooh
Baby, tell me with your eyes
Tell me every secret, darling, every deep desire
Till you and I are makin’ love completely
Come on closer, baby I can’t help the way I hold you
I just hunger for your love
(rpt 1, 2)

Ooooh.
Can I touch you, baby?
All I want to do is touch you, baby.
Touch your very soul inside oooh. Oooh…
(rpt 1)

And let me be the one to show you just what love can do
Come come on baby
(rpt 2)

Can I touch you, baby?
Can I touch you…there?

CARELESS WHISPERS
Wham!

I feel so unsure as I take your hand and lead you to the dance floor. As
the music dyes, something in your eyes, calls to mind the silver screen,
and all it’s sad goodbyes.

Chorus:
I’m never gonna dance again, guilty feet’ve got no rythm. Though it’s
easy to pretend, i know you’re not a fool.
Shoul’ve done better than to cheat a friend, and waste the chance that
I’ve been given. So i’m never gonna dance again, the way I danced with
you……..

Time can never mend the careless whispers of a good friend. To the heart
and mind ignorance is kind. There’s no comfort in the truth, pain is all
you’ll find

chorus

Now that you’re gone (now that you’re gone), that you had to leave me
alone…….

CHERISH
The Association
– written by Terry Kirkman

Cherish is the word I use to describe
All the feeling that I have hiding here for you inside
You don’t know how many times I’ve wished that I had told you
You don’t know how many times I’ve wished that I could hold you
You don’t know how many times I’ve wished that I could
Mold you into someone who could
Cherish me as much as I cherish you

Perish is the word that more than applies
To the hope in my heart each time I realize
That I am not gonna be the one to share your dreams
That I am not gonna be the one to share your schemes
That I am not gonna be the one to share what
Seems to be the life that you could
Cherish as much as I do yours

Oh I’m beginning to think that man has never found
The words that could make you want me
That have the right amount of letters, just the right sound
That could make you hear, make you see
That you are drivin’ me out of my mind

Oh I could say I need you but then you’d realize
That I want you just like a thousand other guys
Who’d say they loved you With all the rest of their lies
When all they wanted was to touch your face, your hands
And gaze into your eyes

Cherish is the word I use to describe
All the feeling that I have hiding here for you inside
You don’t know how many times I’ve wished that I had told you
You don’t know how many times I’ve wished that I could hold you
You don’t know how many times I’ve wished that I could
Mold you into someone who could
Cherish me as much as I cherish you

And I do cherish you
And I do cherish you

Cherish is the word

CHIQUITITA
ABBA (B.Andersson/B.Ulvaeus)
First release 1979

Chiquitita, tell me what’s wrong
You’re enchained by your own sorrow
In your eyes there is no hope for tomorrow
How I hate to see you like this
There is no way you can deny it
I can see that you’re oh so sad, so quiet

Chiquitita, tell me the truth
I’m a shoulder you can cry on
Your best friend, I’m the one you must rely on
You were always sure of yourself
Now I see you’ve broken a feather
I hope we can patch it up together

Chiquitita, you and I know
How the heartaches come and they go and the scars they’re leaving
You’ll be dancing once again and the pain will end
You will have no time for grieving
Chiquitita, you and I cry
But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you
Let me hear you sing once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita

So the walls came tumbling down
And your love’s a blown out candle
All is gone and it seems too hard to handle
Chiquitita, tell me the truth
There is no way you can deny it
I see that you’re oh so sad, so quiet

Chiquitita, you and I know
How the heartaches come and they go and the scars they’re leaving
You’ll be dancing once again and the pain will end
You will have no time for grieving
Chiquitita, you and I cry
But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you
Let me hear you sing once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita

CHURCH OF THE POISON MIND
Culture Club

Desolate loving in your eyes
You used an’ made my life so sweet
Step out like a god found child
I saw your eyes across the street

Who would be the fool to take you
Be more than just kind
Step into a life of maybe
Love is hard to find

In the church of the poison mind
In the church of the poison mind
In the church of the poison mind
In the church of the poison mind

Watch me clingling to the beat
I had to fight to make it mine
That religion you could sink in neat
Just move your feet an’ you’ll feel fine

Who would be the fool to maybe
Trick a kiss in time
Who am I to say that’s crazy
Love will make you blind

In the church of the poison mind
In the church of the poison mind
In the church of the poison mind

Desolate loving in your eyes
You used an’ made my life so sweet
Step out like a god found child
I saw your eyes across the street

Who would be the fool to take you
Be more than just kind
Step into a life of maybe
Love is hard to find

In the church of the poison mind
In the church of the poison mind
In the church of the poison mind
In the church of the poison mind

Clair
Gilbert O’Sullivan

Clair
The moment I met you, I swear.
I felt as if something, somewhere,
Had happened to me, which I couldn’t see.
And then, the moment I met you, again.
I knew in my heart that we were friends.
It had to be so, it couldn’t be no.

But try as hard as I might do, I don’t know why.
You get to me in a way I can’t describe.
Words mean so little when you look up and smile.
I don’t care what people say, to me you’re more than a child.

Oh Clair. Clair …

Clair
If ever a moment so rare
Was captured for all to compare.
That moment is you in all that you do.
But why in spite of our age difference do I cry.
Each time I leave you I feel I could die.
Nothing means more to me than hearing you say,
“I’m going to marry you. Will you marry me? Oh hurray!”

Oh Clair Clair …

Clair
I’ve told you before “Don’t you dare!”
“Get back into bed.”
“Can’t you see that it’s late.”
“No you can’t have a drink.”
“Oh allright then, but wait just a minute.”

While I, in an effort to babysit, catch up on my breath,
What there is left of it.
You can be murder at this hour of the day.
But in the morning the sun will see my lifetime away.
Oh Clair Clair …
Oh Clair
(They Long to Be) Close to You
The Carpenters

Why do birds suddenly apear
Every time you are near?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.

Why do stars fall down from the sky
Every time you walk by?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.

On the day that you were born
and the angels got together
And decided to create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moon dust
in your hair of gold
And starlight in your eyes of blue.

That is why all the girls in town
Follow you all around
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.

On the day that you were born
and the angels got together
And decided to create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moon dust
in your hair of gold
And starlight in your eyes of blue.

That is why all the girls in town
Follow you all around
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.

Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.

The Colour Of Love
Billy Ocean

Ooh ooh ooh

If I had to paint a pictures
To show the world how love can really be
I would use the brightest colours
To create a vision of harmony
It would be a reality
‘Cause its only what’s inside of my heart
You would see I’ve always loved you right from the very start

Tell me what is the colour of love?
What do you see?
Is it warm is it tender when you thing of me
I see the colour of love when I’m thinking of you
As a picture perfect painting of love forever true

The colours of the rainbow turn grey whenever you’re so far away
It changes like the seasons
You’re the reason it happens that way
What you see are colours of emotion
Reflecting what I feel deep inside
Now I’d like to take a look at emotions that you hide

Tell me what is the colour of love?
What do you see?
Is it warm is it tender when you thing of me
I see the colour of love when I’m thinking of you
As a picture perfect painting of love forever true

And oh though many may try to keep us apart
Oh the colours that I see in you will shine a light to see us through
No matter what the world will do I’ll always love you Ooh ooh ooh

Oh what is the colour of love oh tell me tell me
Oh I wanna know I wanna know – when I’m thinking of you
As a picture perfect paining of love forever true

COME A LITTLE BIT CLOSER
Jay & The Americans
– written by Tommy Boyce, Bobby Hart and Wes Farrell
– a #3 hit for Jay & The Americans in 1964
– lyrics as recorded by Jay & The Americans and included on the
1991 compilation album “Jay & The Americans – Greatest Hits”
(CEMA Special Markets S21 57409)

In a little café just the other side of the border
She was just sitting there givin’ me looks that made my mouth water
So I started walking her way
She belonged to bad man, José
And I knew, yes I knew I should leave
When I heard her say, yeah

Come a little bit closer
You’re my kind of man
So big and so strong
Come a little bit closer
I’m all alone
And the night is so long

So we started to dance
In my arms, she felt so inviting
That I just couldn’t resist
Just one little kiss so exciting
Then I heard the guitar player say
“Vamoose, José’s on his way”
Then I knew, yes I knew I should run
But then I heard her say, yeah

Come a little bit closer
You’re my kind of man
So big and so strong
Come a little bit closer
I’m all alone
And the night is so long

—— instrumental break ——

Then the music stopped
When I looked the café was empty
Then I heard José say
“Man you know you’re in trouble plenty”
So I dropped my drink from my hand
And through the window I ran
And as I rode away
I could hear her say to José, yeah

Come a little bit closer
You’re my kind of man
So big and so strong
Come a little bit closer
I’m all alone
And the night is so long

La la-la-la la-la
La la-la-la la-la
Ho ho la-la
La la la-la

COME SAIL AWAY
Styx Dennis DeYoung

I’m sailing away set an open course for the virgin sea
I’ve got to be free free to face the life that’s ahead of me
On board I’m the captain so climb aboard
We’ll search for tomorrow on every shore
And I’ll try oh Lord I’ll try to carry on

I look to the sea reflections in the waves spark my memory
Some happy some sad
I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had
We live happily forever so the story goes
But somehow we missed out on that pot of gold
But we’ll try best that we can to carry on

A gathering of angels appeared above my head
They sang to me this song of hope and this is what they said
They said come sail away come sail away
Come sail away with me
Come sail away come sail away
Come sail away with me

I thought that they were angels but to my surprise
They climbed aboard their starship and headed for the skies
Singing come sail away come sail away
Come sail away with me
Come sail away come sail away
Come sail away with me

Never leave you till my life is done

Country Road
James Taylor

Take to the highway won’t you lend me your name
Your way and my way seem to be one and the same

Mamma don’t understand it
She wants to know where I’ve been
I’d have to be some kind of natural born fool
To want to pass that way again
But I could feel it
On a country road

Sail on home to Jesus won’t you good girls and boys
I’m all in pieces, you can have your own choice
But I can hear a heavenly band full of angels
And they’re coming to set me free
I don’t know nothing ‘bout the why or when
But I can tell that it’s bound to be
Because I could feel it, child, yeah
On a country road

I guess my feet know where they want me to go
Walking on a country road

Take to the highway won’t you lend me your name
Your way and my way seem to be one and the same, child
Mamma don’t understand it
She wants to know where I’ve been
I’d have to be some kind of natural born fool
To want to pass that way again
But I could feel it
On a country road

Walk on down, walk on down, walk on down
Walk on down, walk on down a country road
country road
Walking on a country road

Everybody’s dancin’ in the moonlight

We like our fun and we never fight

It’s a supernatural delight
Everybody was dancin’ in the moonlight

Daniel
Elton John (Elton John/Bernie Taupin)

Daniel is travelling tonight on a plane
I can see the red tailed eyes heading for Spain
Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye
God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes

They say Spain is pretty though I’ve never been
Well Daniel says it’s the best place that he’s ever seen
Oh and he should know, he’s been there enough
Lord I miss Daniel, oh I miss him so much

Daniel my brother you are older than me
Do you still feel the pain of the scars that won’t heel
Your eyes have died but you see more than I
Daniel you’re a star in the face of the sky

Daniel is travelling tonight on a plane
I can see the red tailed eyes heading for Spain
Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye
God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes
Oh God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes

CHORUS
Delta Dawn, what’s that flower you have on?
Could it be a faded rose from days gone by?
And did I hear you say he was a-meetin’ you here today
To take you to his mansion in the sky-eye?

She’s forty-one and her daddy still calls ‘er “baby”
All the folks ‘round Brownsville say she’s crazy
‘cause she walks downtown with her suitcase in her hand
Lookin’ for a mysterious dark-haired man

In her younger days they called her Delta Dawn
Prettiest woman you ever laid eyes on
Then a man of low degree stood by her side
Promised her he’d take her for his bride

DIAMOND GIRL
Seals and Crofts
Words by James Seals, music by James Seals and Dash Crofts

Diamond Girl – you sure do shine
Glad I found you – glad you’re mine
Oh my love you’re like a precious stone
Part of earth where heaven has rained on
Makes no difference where you are
Day or nighttime you’re like a shinin’ star
And how could I shine without you
When it’s about you that I am

Diamond Girl – roamin’ wild
Such a rare thing – radiant child
I could never find another one like you
Part of me is deep down inside you
Can’t you feel the whole world’s a-turnin’
We are real and we are a-burnin’
Diamond Girl now that I’ve found you
It’s around you that I am

Diamond Girl – you sure do shine
Diamond Girl – you sure do shine
Diamond Girl – you sure do shine
Diamond Girl – you sure do shine

– words and music by Paul Anka
– written in 1956 at the age of 15 by Paul Anka about
his 18-year-old neighbour (in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada)
Diane Ayoub, whom he had a crush on.

I’m so young and you’re so old
This, my darling, I’ve been told
I don’t care just what they say
‘Cause forever I will pray
You and I will be as free
As the birds up in the trees
Oh, please stay by me, Diana

Thrills I get when you hold me close
Oh, my darling, you’re the most
I love you but do you love me
Oh, Diana, can’t you see
I love you with all my heart
And I hope we will never part
Oh, please stay with me, Diana

Oh, my darlin’, oh, my lover
Tell me that there is no other
I love you with my heart
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Only you can take my heart
Only you can tear it apart
When you hold me in your loving arms
I can feel you giving all your charms
Hold me, darling, ho-ho hold me tight
Squeeze me baby with-a all your might
Oh, please stay with me, Diana
Oh, please, Diana
Oh, please, Diana
Oh, please, Diana

Disco Duck
Rick Dees & His Cast of Idiots

Went to a party the other night
All the ladies were treating me right
Moving my feet to the disco beat
How in the world could I keep my seat

All of a sudden I began to change
I was on the dance floor acting strange
Flapping my arms I began to cluck
Look at me..I’m the disco duck

Ah get down mama, I’ve got to have me a woman, ha ha ha ha ha
Disco, disco duck
Got to have me a woman
Disco, disco duck
Oh get down mama
Try your luck, don’t be a cluck, disco
Disco

Disco
Disco
Disco
Disco disco duck
All right
Disco disco duck
Ah get down mama, oh mama shake your tail feather, ha ha ha ha ha

When the music stopped I returned to my seat
But there’s no stoppin’ a duck and his beat
So I got back up to try my luck
Why look

Everybody’s doin’ the
Disco, disco duck
Disco, disco duck
Try your luck
Wave to me
Don’t be a cluck
I’m so happy to be here

Disco disco disco
Thank you so very much
Disco duck
You’re welcome

Disco Inferno
Tina Turner
(L. Green/ R. Kersey)
PRODUCERS: Chris Lord-Alge, Tina Turner and Roger Davies
ALBUM: What’s Love Got To Do With It (93)

To my surprise one hundred storeys high
People getting loose now, getting down on the roof
Folks screaming, out of control
It was so entertaining when the boogie started to explode
I heard somebody say

(Burn baby burn) Disco Inferno
(Burn baby burn) Burn that mother down
(Burn baby burn) Disco Inferno
(Burn baby burn) Burn that mother down

Satisfaction came in a chain reaction
I couldn’t get enough, so I had to self-destruct
The heat was on, rising to the top
Everybody is going strong, and that is when my spark got hot
I heard somebody say

(Burn baby burn) Disco Inferno
(Burn baby burn) Burn that mother down
(Burn baby burn) Disco Inferno
(Burn baby burn) Burn that mother down

Up above my head
I hear music in the air
That makes me know
There’s a party somewhere

(Just can’t stop) When my spark gets hot
(Just can’t stop) When my spark gets hot
DISCO NIGHTS (ROCK FREAK)
G.Q.

Let the spirit flow all through your body
Just lend us an ear
Involve yourself
You’re free to follow
And we’ll take you there
You said you want to reach the sky
So get up
The feeling’s right
And the music’s tight
On the disco nights
Just say you will
Just do what you feel
I’m for real

The music’s full of joy and laughter
And it’s such a thrill
To free your mind from all the pressure
Head on up the hill
(repeat chorus)

DOCTOR’S ORDERS
Carol Douglas

Hello?
Hiya honey

I’ve had a pain deep down inside
He said there’s nothing really wrong with me
I’m just missing my man, so honey
Please come on home as soon as you can

Doctor’s orders say there’s only one thing for me
Nothing he can do ‘cos only you can cure me

A lovin’ spoonful to be taken
It’s the only way to stop this empty
Heart of mine from breakin
Won’t get better till you’re back again he told me
Doctor’s orders need your loving arms to hold me
Darling now I know there ain’t no doubt about it
I’m so hooked on your love I can’t live without it
You’re away but please don’t treat me like a stranger

Doctor’s orders say there’s only one thing for me
Nothing he can do ‘cos only you can cure me
Says in my condition love’s the best physician

Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?
Chicago

As I was walking down the street one day
A man came up to me and asked me what the time was that was
on my watch, yeah
And I said
Does anybody really know what time it is
I don’t
Does anybody really care
care
If so I can’t imagine why
about time
We’ve all got time enough to cry
Oh no, no

And I was walking down the street one day
A pretty lady looked at me and said her diamond watch had
stopped cold dead
And I said
Does anybody really know what time it is
I don’t
Does anybody really care
care
If so I can’t imagine why
about time
We’ve all got time enough to cry
Oh no, no

And I was walking down the street one day
Being pushed and shoved by people trying to beat the clock,
oh, so I just don’t know,
I just don’t know
And I said, yes I said

Background Vocal:
People runnin’ everywhere
Don’t know the way to go
Don’t know where I am
Can’t see past the next step
Don’t have to think past the last mile
Have no time to look around
Just run around, run around and think why

Does anybody really know what time it is
I don’t
Does anybody really care
care
If so I can’t imagine why
about time
We’ve all got time enough to die
Oh no, no

Don’t Cry For Me Argentina
Carpenters

ANNOUNCER
People of Argentina!
Your newly elected president – Juan Peron!

CROWD
Peron! Peron?

PERON
Argentinos! Argentinos!
We are all leaders now!
Fighting against our common enemies
Poverty
Social injustice
Foreign domination of our industries
Reaching for our common goals
Our independence
Our dignity
Our pride
Let the world know that our great nation is awakening
And that its heart
Beats in the humble bodies
Of Juan Peron – and
His wiie, the first lady of Argentina,
Eva Duarte de Peron!

CROWD
Peron! Peron!

CHE
As a mere observer of this tasteless phenomenon
One has to admire the stage management
There again perhaps I’m more than a mere observer
Listen to my enthusiasm gentlemen
Peron! Peron!

CROWD
EVlTA! EVITA!
EVA
It won’t be easy, you’ll think it strange
When I try to explain how l feel
That I still need your love after all that I’ve done
You won’t believe me
All you will see is a girl you once knew
Although she’s dressed up to the nines
At sixes and sevens with you

I had to let it happen; I had to change
Couldn’t stay all my life down at heel
Looking out of the window, staying out of the sun
So I chose freedom
Running around trying everything new
But nothing impressed me at all
I never expected it to

Don’t cry for me Argentina
The truth is I never left you
All through my wild days
My mad existence
I kept my promise
Don’t keep your distance

And as for fortune, and as for fame
I never invited them in
Though it seemed to the world they were all I desired
They are illusions
They’re not the solutions they promised to be
The answer was here all the time
I love you and hope you love me

Don’t cry for me Argentina –

EVA
Don’t cry for me Argentina
The truth is I never left you
All through my wild days
My mad existence
I kept my promise
Don’t keep your distance

Have I said too much? There’s nothing more
I can think of to say to you
But all you have to do is look at me to know
that every word is true

Don’t Cry Out Loud
Melissa Manchester (peak Billboard position # 10 in 1978-79)
Words by Carol Bayer Sager and Music by Peter Allen

Baby cried the day the circus came to town
‘cause she didn’t want parades just passin’ by her
So she painted on a smile and took up with some clown
While she danced without a net upon the wire
I know a lot about ‘er ‘cause, you see
Baby is an awful lot like me

Don’t cry out loud
Just keep it inside, learn how to hide your feelings
Fly high and proud
And if you should fall, remember you almost had it all

Baby saw that when they pulled that big top down
They left behind her dreams among the litter
The different kind of love she thought she’d found
There was nothin’ left but sawdust and some glitter
But baby can’t be broken ‘cause you see
She had the finest teacher-that was me-I told ‘er

Don’t cry out loud
Just keep it inside and learn how to hide your feelings
Fly high and proud
And if you should fall, remember you almost had it all

Don’t cry out loud
Just keep it inside and learn how to hide your feelings
Fly high and proud
And if you should fall, remember you almost made it

Don’t cry out loud
Just keep it inside and learn how to hide your feelings
Fly high and proud
And if you should fall, remember you almost had it all

Elton John Written by Ann Orson and Carte Blanche

Duet with RuPaul (1993)
Available on the album Duets

Don’t go breaking my heart
I couldn’t if I tried
Honey if I get restless
Baby you’re not that kind

Don’t go breaking my heart
You take the weight off me
Honey when you knock on my door
I gave you my key

Nobody knows it
When I was down
I was your clown
Nobody knows it
Right from the start
I gave you my heart
I gave you my heart

So don’t go breaking my heart
I won’t go breaking your heart
Don’t go breaking my heart

And nobody told us
`Cause nobody showed us
And now it’s up to us babe
I think we can make it

So don’t misunderstand me
You put the light in my life
You put the sparks to the flame
I’ve got your heart in my sights

DON’T LEAVE ME THIS WAY
Thelma Houston

Don’t leave me this way
I can’t survive, I can’t stay alive
Without you love, oh baby
Don’t leave me this way
I can’t exist, I will surely miss
Your tender kiss
So don’t leave me this way

Oh baby, my heart is full of love and desire for you
So come on down and do what you’ve got to do
You started this fire down in my soul
Now can’t you see it’s burning, out of control
So come down and stisfy the need in me
Cos only your good loving can set me free

Don’t leave me this way
I don’t understand how I’m at your command
So baby please don”t leave me this way

Don’t leave me this way
Cos I can’t exist
I will surely miss
your tender kiss
So don’t leave me this way

Oh baby, my heart is full of love and desire for you…

Don’t leave me this way
I can’t survive, I can’t stay alive
Without you love, oh baby
Don’t leave me this way
I can’t exist, I will surely miss
Your tender kiss
So don’t leave me this way

Oh baby, my heart is full of love and desire for you…

Don’t Let It End
Styx
(Dennis De Young)
From: “Kilroy Was Here”

What can I do,
Pictures of you still make me cry
Trying to live without your love
It’s so hard to do

Some nights I wake up
I look at your pillow
Hoping that I’ll see you there
But I get up each day
Not much to say
I’ve nowhere to go
Loneliness fills me up inside
‘Cause I’m missing you

So if you give us a chance to remember
The love we had once together
Wait and see
Time is all that we really need
I’m prayin’ you won’t say no
I mean to tell you

Don’t let it end
Baby we could have so much more
Don’t let it end
Honey please don’t walk out that door

I’m telling you baby
I’ve made my mistakes
But I’ll make you this promise
To do what it takes
I’ll be there to protect you
And hold you tight
You’ve got my loving baby
Every single night

Don’t let it end
I’m begging you
Don’t let it end this way
Don’t let it end
I’m begging you
Don’t let it end this way

—–guitar solo—–

Don’t let it end
Baby we could have so much more
Don’t let it end
Honey please don’t walk out that door
Don’t let it end
I’m begging you
Don’t let it end this way
Don’t let it end
I’m begging you
Don’t let it end this way
No no no
No no no

What will I do
If you say we’re through
I need you to stay
Honey,
Don’t let it end…this…way

Aaaaahhhh Ohhhhhh

Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood
The Animals
peak Billboard position # 15 in 1965
Words and Music by Bennie Benjamin, Sol Marcus, and Gloria Caldwell
Notes : Written for “The Animals” in 1965,
corrected and ‘disco’ arranged for “Santa Esmeralda”.
Also performed by “Joe Cocker”

Baby, do you understand me now?
Sometimes I feel a little mad
But don’t you know that no one alive can always be an angel
When things go wrong I feel real bad.

I’m just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood

Baby, sometimes I’m so carefree
With a joy that’s hard to hide
And sometimes it seems that, all I have to do is worry
And then you’re bound to see my other side

I’m just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood

If I seem edgy, I want you to know,
That I never mean to take it out on you
Life has its problems, and I get my share,
And that’s one thing I never mean to do

‘Cause I love you,
Oh,

Oh, oh, oh, baby – don’t you know I’m human
I have thoughts like any other one
Sometimes I find myself, Lord, regretting
Some foolish thing, some little simple thing I’ve done

I’m just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood
Yes, I’m just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood
Yes, I’m just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood

FADE
Yes, I’m just a soul whose intentions are good

Oo she done me, she done me good

Don’t let me down
Hey, don’t let me down
Don’t let me down

Don’t Let the Rain Come Down (Crooked Little Man)

– Artists: The Serendipity Singers

– Words and Music by Ersel Hickey and Ed Miller

 

CHORUS
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don’t let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don’t let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don’t let the rain come down
My roof’s got a hole in it and I might drown
Oh, yes, my roof’s got a hole in it and I might drown

There was a crooked man and he had a crooked smile
Had a crooked sixpence and he walked a crooked mile
Had a crooked cat and he had a crooked mouse
They all lived together in a crooked little house

CHORUS

Well, this crooked little man and his crooked little smile
Took his crooked sixpence and he walked a crooked mile
Bought some crooked nails and a crooked little bat
Tried to fix his roof with a rat-tat-tat-tat-tat

CHORUS

Now this crooked little man and his crooked cat and mouse
They all live together in a crooked little house
Has a crooked door with a crooked little latch
Has a crooked roof with a crooked little patch

CHORUS

CHORUS
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don’t let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don’t let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don’t let the rain come down
My roof’s got a hole in it (my roof’s got a hole in it)
My roof’s got a hole in it and I might drown

DON’T LET THE SUN CATCH YOU CRYING
Gerry and The Pacemakers
(Marsden – Marsden – Chadwick – Maguire)

Don’t let the sun catch you cryin’
The night’s the time for all your tears
Your heart may be broken tonight
But tomorrow in the morning light
Don’t let the sun catch you cryin’

The night-time shadows disappear
And with them go all your tears
For the morning will bring joy
For every girl and boy
So don’t let the sun catch you cryin’

We know that cryin’s not a bad thing
But stop your cryin’ when the birds sing

It may be hard to discover
That you’ve been left for another
But don’t forget that love’s a game
And it can always come again
Oh don’t let the sun catch you cryin’
Don’t let the sun catch you cryin’, oh no
Oh, oh, oh

DON’T PULL YOUR LOVE
Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds

Don’t pull your love out on me baby
If you do then I think that maybe
I’ll just lay me down and cry for a hundred years
Don’t pull your love out on me honey
Take my heart, my soul, my money
But don’t leave me drownin’ in my tears

You say you’re gonna leave
Gonna take that big white bird
Gonna fly right out of here
Without a single word
Don’t you know you’ll break my heart
When I watch you close that door
Cause I know I won’t see you anymore

Don’t pull your love out on me baby
If you do then I think that maybe
I’ll just lay me down and cry for a hundred years
Don’t pull your love out on me honey
Take my heart, my soul, my money
But don’t leave me drownin’ in my tears

Haven’t I been good to you
What about that brand new ring
Doesn’t that mean love to you
Doesn’t that mean anything
If I threw away my pride
And I got down on my knees
Would I have to beg you, “pretty please”

Don’t pull your love out on me baby
If you do then I think that maybe
I’ll just lay me down and cry for a hundred years
Don’t pull your love out on me honey
Take my heart, my soul, my money
But don’t leave me drownin’ in my tears

There’s so much I wanna do
I’ve got love enough for two
But I’ll never use it girl if I don’t have you
Don’t pull your love out on me baby
If you do then I think that maybe
I’ll just lay me down and cry for a hundred years
Don’t pull your love out on me honey
Take my heart, my soul, my money
But don’t leave me drownin’ in my tears

DON’T TAKE AWAY THE MUSIC
Tavares

Don’t take away the music
it’s the only thing i’ve got
it’s my piece of the rock

i knew you were always there
you were my song
how am i suppossed to bear it
now that you’ve gone
would you separate the words
memories from a sweet melody
baby would you take away
the music from a symphony

don’t take away the music it’s the only thing i’ve got
it’s my piece of the rock
don’t take away the music everything else is gone
don’t strip my world of it’s song

everytime you whispered low
my heart would sing
now it’s silent like the phone
the phone that never rings
memories of love’s refrain
memories keep haunting me
what are we doing to the song we sang
what happend to our sweet harmony

don’t take away the music it’s the only thing i’ve got
it’s my piece of the rock
don’t take away the music everything else is gone
don’t strip my world of it’s song

don’t take away the music ooh ooh ooh
don’t take away the music ooh ooh ooh
don’t take away the music ooh ooh ooh

oooooooooooooooooooooooo
since you’re not here with me
my whole life seems out of key

don’t take away the music it’s the only thing i’ve got
it’s my piece of the rock
don’t take away the music everything else is gone
don’t strip my world of it’s song

Don’t Worry Baby
B.J. Thomas (Brian Wilson/Roger Christian)

Well it’s been building up inside of me
for oh I don’t know how long
I don’t know why but I keep thinkin’
something’s bound to go wrong
But she looks in my eyes
And makes me realize when she says.

Don’t worry baby
Ev’rything will work out all right
Don’t worry baby oo.

I guess I should-a kept my mouth shut
when I start to brag about my car
But I can’t back down now because I
pushed the other guys too far
She makes me come alive
And makes me wanna drive when she says.

Don’t worry baby
Ev’rything will work out all right
Don’t worry baby oo.

She said now baby when you race today
just take along my love for you
And if you knew how much I loved you baby
Nothing could go wrong with you
Oh what she does to me
When she makes love to me and she says.

Don’t worry baby
Ev’rything will work out all right.

DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY
Bobby McFerrin Written by Bobby McFerrin

– released July 1988
– reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1989
– featured in the movie “Cocktail” starring Tom Cruise

Here’s a little song I wrote
You might want to sing it note-for-note
Don’t worry, be happy
In every life we have some trouble
But when you worry, you make it double
Don’t worry, be happy Don’t worry, be happy now

Ooo-oo-hoo-hoo-oo hoo-hoo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don’t worry
Woo-oo-woo-oo-woo-oo-ooo Be happy
Woo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don’t worry, be happy

Ooo-oo-hoo-hoo-oo hoo-hoo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don’t worry
Woo-oo-woo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Be happy
Woo-oo-woo-oo-ooo Don’t worry, be happy

Ain’t got no place to lay your head
Somebody came and took your bed
Don’t worry, be happy
The landlord say your rent is late
He may have to litigate
Don’t worry, (ha-ha ha-ha ha-ha) be happy (look at me, I’m happy)

Ooo-oo-hoo-hoo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don’t worry
Oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Be happy
Oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo (Here, I’ll give you my phone number. When you’re
worried, call me. I’ll make you happy.)
Ooo-oo-hoo-hoo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don’t worry
Woo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo Be happy
Woo-oo-oo-oo-ooo

Ain’t got no cash, ain’t got no style
Ain’t got no gal to make you smile
But don’t worry, be happy
‘Cause when you’re worried, your face will frown
And that will bring everybody down
So don’t worry, be happy Don’t worry, be happy now

Ooo-oo-hoo-oo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don’t worry
Oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Be happy
Woo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don’t worry, be happy

Ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don’t worry
Woo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo Be happy
Woo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don’t worry, be happy

Now there, is this song I wrote
I hope you learned it note-for-note, like good little children
Don’t worry, be happy
A-listen to a-what I say
In your life, expect some trouble
When you worry you make it double
Don’t worry, be happy, be happy now

Ooo-oo-hoo-hoo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don’t worry
Oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Be happy
Oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don’t worry, be happy

Ooo-oo-hoo-oo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don’t worry
Woo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Be happy
Woo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don’t worry, be happy

Ooo-oo-hoo-oo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don’t worry, don’t worry
Oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don’t do it, be happy
Oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Put a smile on your face
Don’t bring everybody down like
this
Ooo-oo-hoo-hoo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don’t worry
Ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo It will soon pass, whatever it
is
Ooo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don’t worry, be happy

(fading…)
Ooo-oo-hoo-hoo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo I’m not worried
Ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo I’m happy
Ooo-oo-oo-oo-ooo

Do It Again
Steely Dan

In the mornin’ you go gunnin’ for the man who stole your water
And you fire till he is done in but they catch you at the border
And the mourners are all singin’ as they drag you by your feet
But the hangman isn’t hangin’ so they put you on the street

You go back, Jack, do it again, wheels turinin’ ‘round and ‘round
You go back, Jack, do it again

When you know she’s no high climber then you find your only friend
In a room with your two timer, but you’re sure you’re near the end
Then you love a little wild one, and she brings you only sorrow
All the time you know she’s smilin’, you’ll be on your knees tomorrow

Chorus

Guitar Solo
Keyboard Solo

Now you swear and kick and beg us that yopu’re not a gamblin’ man;
Then you find you’re back in Vegas with a handle in your hand
Your black cards can bring you money so you hide them when you’re able
In the land of milk and honey you must put them on the table

ChorusDo You Believe in Magic
Lovin’ Spoonful

Do you believe in magic in a young girl’s heart
How the music can free her, whenever it starts
And it’s magic, if the music is groovy
It makes you feel happy like an old-time movie
I’ll tell you about the magic, and it’ll free your soul
But it’s like trying to tell a stranger ‘bout rock and roll

If you believe in magic don’t bother to choose
If it’s jug band music or rhythm and blues
Just go and listen it’ll start with a smile
It won’t wipe off your face no matter how hard you try
Your feet start tapping and you can’t seem to find
How you got there, so just blow your mind

If you believe in magic, come along with me
We’ll dance until morning ‘til there’s just you and me
And maybe, if the music is right
I’ll meet you tomorrow, sort of late at night
And we’ll go dancing, baby, then you’ll see
How the magic’s in the music and the music’s in me

Yeah, do you believe in magic
Yeah, believe in the magic of a young girl’s soul
Believe in the magic of rock and roll
Believe in the magic that can set you free
Ohh, talking ‘bout magic

Do you believe like I believe Do you believe in magic
Do you believe like I believe Do you believe, believer
Do you believe like I believe Do you believe in magic
{Fade}

Do You Feel Like We Do
Peter Frampton

Well, woke up this morning with a wine glass in my hand.
Whose wine? What wine? Where the hell did I dine?
Must have been a dream I don’t believe where I’ve been.
Come on, let’s do it again.

Do you…you, feel like I do?
How’d ya feel?
Do you…you, feel like I do?

My friend got busted, just the other day.
They said,”Don’t walk, don’t walk, don’t walk away.”
Drove him to a taxi, bent the boot, hit the bag.
Had to play some music, wonder why’s he [brag or drag].

Do you…you, feel like I do?
How’d ya [turns from mic, can’t catch it]?
Do you…you, feel like I…

[1st guitar solo]

Do you…you, feel like I do?
Yes ya do.
Do you…you, feel like I do?

Champagne for breakfast and a Sherman in my hand.
Peached up, Peached Ale, never fails.
Must have been a dream I don’t believe where I’ve been.
Come on, let’s do it again.

Do you…you, feel like I do?
How’d ya feel?
Do you…you, feel like I…

[keyboard solo]

“Bob Mayo, on the keyboards. Bob Mayo”

Do you feel like we do?
Do you feel like we do?
Oh, that’s true.
Do you feel like we do?
Get back.
Do you feel..do you feel like we do?

[2nd guitar solo]

[start voice box]

Oh baby do you feel?
Oh baby do you feel, feel like we do?
Do you feel…do you feel…like we do?
I want to thank you.
Do you feel like we do?
That’s alright, that’s alright to feel you’d like,
Feel you’d like, a good time.
We’ll goto bed and good night.
Good night, good night, good night, good night, good night.

Dreamer
Supertramp

Dreamer, you know you are a dreamer
Well can you put your hands in your head, oh no!
I said dreamer, you’re nothing but a dreamer
Well can you put your hands in your head, oh no!
I said “Far out, – What a day, a year, a laugh it is!”
You know, – Well you know you had it comin’ to you,
Now there’s not a lot I can do

Dreamer, you stupid little dreamer;
So now you put your head in your hands, oh no!
I said “Far out, – What a day, a year, a laugh it is!”
You know, – Well you know you had it comin’ to you,
Now there’s not a lot I can do.

Well work it out someday

If I could see something
You can see anything you want boy
If I could be someone-
You can be anyone, celebrate boy.
If I could do something-
Well you can do something,
If I could do anything-
Well can you do something out of this world?

Take a dream on a Sunday
Take a life, take a holiday
Take a lie, take a dreamer
dream, dream, dream, dream, dream along…

Dreamer, you know you are a dreamer
Well can you put your hands in your head, oh no!
I said dreamer, you’re nothing but a dreamer
Well can you put your hands in your head, oh no!
OH NO!DREAMS
Fleetwood Mac
(Stevie Nicks)

Now here you go again
You say you want your freedom
Well who am I to keep you down
It’s only right that you should
Play the way you feel it
But listen carefully to the sound
Of your loneliness
Like a heartbeat…drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering what you had
And what you lost…
And what you had…
And what you lost

Thunder only happens when it’s raining
Players only love you when they’re playing
Say…Women…they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean…you’ll know

Now here I go again, I see the crystal visions
I keep my visions to myself
It’s only me
Who wants to wrap around your dreams and…
Have you any dreams you’d like to sell?
Dreams of loneliness…
Like a heartbeat…drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering what you had…
And what you lost
And what you had…
And what you lost

Thunder only happens when it’s raining
Players only love you when they’re playing
Say…Women…they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean…you’ll know

Dream On
Aerosmith

Every time when I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
it went by, like dusk to dawn
Isn’t that the way
Everybody’s got the dues in life to pay

I know nobody knows
where it comes and where it goes
I know it’s everybody sin
You got to lose to know how to win

Half my life
is books written pages
live and love from fools and
from sages
You know it’s true,OH
All these things come back to you

Sing with me, sing for the years
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears
Sing with me, just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good lord will take you away

Yeah, sing with me, sing for the year
sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
sing with me, just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away

Dream On
Dream On
Dream On
Dream until your dreams come true
Dream On
Dream On
Dream On
Dream until your dreams come true
Dream On

Dream On

Sing with me, sing for the year
sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
sing with me,just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away
Sing with me, sing for the year
sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
Sing with me, just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away.

Dulcinea
Johnny Mathis Music by Mitch Leigh and Words by Joe Darion

Apparently no one charted this as a single
From the Broadway show “Man Of La Mancha” wherein poor, befuddled Don
Quixote mistakes a barmaid as his “lady.” He names her “Dulcinea” and, carrying a bar rag on his lance as her colors, sallies forth to tilt at windmills.

I have dreamed thee too long
Never seen thee or touched thee but known thee with all of my heart
Half a prayer, half a song
Thou hast always been with me though we have been always apart

Dulcinea, Dulcinea
I see heaven when I see thee, Dulcinea
And thy name is like a prayer an angel whispers
Dulcinea

*If I reach out to thee*
Do not tremble or shrink from the touch of my hand on thy hair
Let my fingers but see thou art warm and alive and no phantom to fade in the air

Dulcinea, Dulcinea
I have sought thee, sung thee, dreamed thee, Dulcinea
Now I’ve found thee and the world shall know thy glory
Dulcinea, Dul…ci…ne…a
