When you and I were seventeen, and life and love were new,
The world was all a field of green and skies were smiling blue,
That golden spring when I was king, and you my wonderful queen,
Do you recall when love was all, and we were seventeen.

Will prove untrue, then what will you do?
Maybe, you'll sit and sigh, wishing that I were near.
Maybe you'll ask me to come back again ...
And maybe I'll say 'maybe'.  :)

Day in, day out.

Day in, day out, the same old hoodoo follows me about
The same old pounding in my heart whenever I think of you
And, darling, I think of you Day in and day out

Day out, day in, I needn't tell you how my days begin
When I awake, I awaken with a tingle, One possibility in view
That possibility of maybe seeing you

Come rain, come shine, I meet you and to me the day is fine
Then I kiss your lips, And the pounding becomes
The ocean's roar, A thousand drums
Can't you see it's love, Can there be any doubt
When there it is, day in, day out.

You keep coming back like a song,
A song that keeps saying 'remember',
The sweet used to be that was once you and me
Keeps coming back like an old melody;
The perfume of roses in June
Still lives in my heart in December,
From out of the past where forgotten things belong,
You keep coming back like a song.

So far away
Doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore
It would be so fine to see your face at my door
Doesn't help to know you're just time away

Long ago I reached for you and there you stood
Holding you again could only do me good
Oh, how I wish I could
But you're so far away

I'm spending Christmas with the old folk,
Round the fireside of home sweet home.
It's too good to believe, I'll be home on Christmas Eve:
I'll be in heaven spending seven day leave.
While mother cooks the Christmas dinner,
Round the old place with dad I'll roam,
And then we'll sing and tell the old jokes
Spending Christmas with the old folks,
Round the fireside of home sweet home.

Ten cents a dance

All that you need is a ticket
Come on, big boy, ten cents a dance.

While the music plays on.

Each night in some café, I'm on display
Until the dark turns into dawn
Up upon the stand singing with the band
While the music plays on

Each night is just a long and endless song
Until the last couple has gone
Vainly I'm the star singing out my heart
While the music plays on

Oh what madness to discover
Music still possesses all its charms
As I serenade my lover
Dancing by in someone else's arms

But I am not allowed to show the crowd
What happens when romance has gone
I must hid my fears singing through the tears
While the music plays on

Flamingo, like a flame in the sky
Flying over the island
To my lover nearby

Flamingo, with your tropical hue
For it's you I rely on
And the love that is true

The wind sings a song to you as you go
The song that I hear below
The murmuring heart

Flamingo, when the sun meets the sea
Say farewell to my lover
And hasten to me

I saw below me that golden valley:

A little nest that nestles where roses bloom

Just Molly and me
And baby makes three
We're happy in my Blue Heaven.

The night is young and you're so beautiful.
Here among the shadows, beautiful lady, open you heart.
The scene is set, the breezes sing of it,
Can't you get into the swing of it, lady, when do we start?
When the lady is kissable and the evening is cool,
Any dream is permissible in the heart of a fool.
The moon is high and you're so glamorous,
And if I seem over amorous, lady, what can I do?
The night is young and I'm in love with you.

All the way.

When somebody loves you
It's no good unless he loves you - all the way
Happy to be near you
When you need someone to cheer you - all the way

Taller than the tallest tree is
That's how it's got to feel
Deeper than the deep blue see is
That's how deep it goes - if its real

When somebody needs you
It's no good unless he needs you - all the way
Through the good or lean years
And for all the in between years - come what may

Who know where the road will lead us
Only a fool would say

The way you look tonight

Can't resist posting the full lyric, it's so beautiful!

Someday, when I'm awfully low
And the world is cold
I will feel a glow just thinking of you
And the way you look tonight

Yes, you're lovely
With your smile so warm, and your cheek so soft
There is nothing for me but to love you
Just the way you look tonight

With each word your tenderness grows
Tearing my fear apart
And that smile that wrinkles your nose
Touches my foolish heart

Lovely, never, never change
Keep that breathless charm
Won't you please arrange it, 'cause I love you
Just the way you look tonight.

Yes, those great Tin Pan Alley names were a large part of the youth of us oldies. A Golden, romantic era which, although make-believe, made life rather wonderful.

I suppose every generation has the same experiences and feelings.

City of laughter, city of tears.

City of Laughter, City of Tears,
What are the secrets you hold?
What are the sorrows beneath the joys,
The pain 'neath the glitter and gold?
Faces are beaming, happy and bright,
But 'mid all the pleasure that cheers,
There are hearts that seem light, that are breaking to-night,
In that City of Laughter and Tears.

Tera on my pillow.

Tears on my pillow, an ache in my heart
A broken vow, I’m lonesome now
There’s someone else you love

Tears on my pillow, oh, why should it be
She’d often talk about that walk
Right down the aisle with me

Rumours that I disbelieved
Have now all come true
I know that I’ve been deceived
What my heart’s gone through

Tears on my pillow, for now we’re apart
My eyes are red with tears I’ve shed
I’m left a broken heart.

Underneath the spreading chestnut tree,
I loved her and she loved me
There she used to sit upon my knee
‘Neath the spreading chestnut tree

There beneath the boughs we used to meet
All her kisses were so sweet
All the little birds went tweet, tweet, tweet
‘Neath the spreading chestnut tree

I said I love you,
And there ain’t no ifs or buts
She said I love you
And the blacksmith shouted “Chestnuts”

Underneath the spreading chestnut tree
There she said she’d marry me
Now you ought to see our family
‘Neath the spreading chestnut tree.

At the end of the day.

At the end of the day just kneel and say
“Thank you, Lord, for my work and play”.
I’ve tried to be good, for I know that I should
That’s a prayer for the end of the day.

So when the new dawn begins to break
Just lift up your eyes, let your heart awake
Be ready to meet what the day may send
And be ready to greet every man as a friend

Nobody knows what a power you have found
So do what you can for the others around
Carry them high when they seem to be low
As on your way you go.

Doesn't try to please me
Doesn't even tease me
And he never sees me glance his way

And though I'm heart-sore, the boy next door
Affection for me won't display
I just adore him
So I can't ignore him

Round in circles, I’d go
Longing to tell you but afraid and shy
I’d let my golden chances pass me by

Love is a many splendored thing

Love walked right in
And drove the shadows away.
Love walked right in
And brought my sunniest day.
One magic moment and my heart seemed to know
That love said hello,
Though not a word was spoken!

One look and I forgot the gloom of the past.
One look and I had found my future at last.
Oh, then and there I found a world completely new
When love walked in with you!

This is worth a listen

My kind of girl.

She walks like an angel walks
She talks like an angel talks
And her hair has a kind of curl
To my mind shes my kind of girl .

Shes wise like an angel's wise
With eyes like an angel's eyes
And her smile's like a kind of pearl
To my mind shes my kind of girl.

It's the talk of the town.

I can't show my face, Can't go anyplace,
People stop an' stare, It's so hard to bare,
Everybody knows you left me, It's the talk of the town...

Every time we meet, My heart skips a beat,
We don't stop to speak, 'Though it's just a week,
Everybody knows you left me, It's the talk of the town...

We send out invitations, To friends and relations,
Announcing our weddin' day
Our friends and our relations, Gave congratulations,
How can you face them? What can you say?

Let's make up sweetheart, We can't stay apart,
Don't let foolish pride, Keep you from my side,
How can love like ours be ended? It's the talk of the town...

Let the time go by, I won't care
If I can be here on the street where you live

Then her eyes must have closed for what seems an eternity
When they open up she's lookin' down at her feet

Though April showers may come your way,
They bring the flowers that bloom in May.
So if it's raining, have no regrets,
Because it isn't raining rain, you know, It's raining violets,
And where you see clouds upon the hills,
You soon will see crowds of daffodils,
So keep on looking for a blue bird, And listening for his song,
Whenever April showers come along.

The Blue Flag

Hello Hello, how do you do,
We are the boys, in Royal Blue,
Where e'er we go,
We fear no foe,
We'll keep the blue flag
Flying high,


Oh flying high up in the sky,
We'll keep the blue flag flying high,
Where e'er we go, we fear no foe,
We'll keep the blue flag flying high.

There is a team, a Glasgow team,
Who's colours they are white and green,
But when they meet the boys in blue,
They simply don't know what to do.

Oh flying high up in the sky,
We'll keep the blue flag flying high,
Where e'er we go, we fear no foe,
We'll keep the blue flag flying high.

"Blue"

Another northern sky
 Another motorway parade
 Another day like this
 Whatever will be will be
 And we will be in Shrewsbury (do I have to go)

 Do I have to go
 Could I ever stay away
 And you never know
 Tonight our luck could change
 And we'll be flying all the way (going all the way)
 A late point and I'll be laughing
 And Saturday won't seem so bleak
 With you, Blue

 Ever a stepping stone
 Someone's Mickey Mouse affair
 We're so unfashionable
 But I'm not with you for your stylish hair
 Or the seaside air (if we ever get there)
 Tell me we've acquired a striker (Stanley)
 And a lucrative sponsorship came through (on a free)
 Will you, Blue
 Can we not buy someone famous
 And pull a crowd we can't contain at all
 All true, Blue

 Maybe we'll never tread the grass that grows around your feet
 And you let us in for weighting tables like we live to feed
 And not to eat (but we get a seat)
 Three points and the living's easy
 And every day's a Saturday
 With you, true blue
 Saturday

Long been a favourite - one of the reasons being having Shrewsbury in the lyrics - how often does that happen?!!

A mouse lived in a windmill in old Amsterdam
A windmill with a mouse in and he wasn't grousin'
He sang every morning, "How lucky I am,
Living in a windmill in old Amsterdam!"

Chorus:
I saw a mouse!
Where?
There on the stair!
Where on the stair?
Right there!
A little mouse with clogs on
Well I declare!
Going clip-clippety-clop on the stair
Oh yeah

Three blind mice, three blind mice,
See how they run, see how they run,

Who cut off their tails with a carving knife,
Did you ever see such a thing in your life,
As three blind mice?

Here's a health to the King and a lasting peace,
To faction an end, to wealth increase;
Come, let us drink it while we have breath,
For there's no drinking after death,
And he that will this health deny,
Down among the dead men,
Down among the dead men,
Down, down, down, down,
Down among the dead men let him lie.

I spent it in good company
And all the harm I've ever done
Alas, it was to none but me

To memory now I can't recall
So fill to me the parting glass
Good night and joy be to you all

The sky was full of moon, the moon was full of smiles,
And I was full of love and ecstasy.
I raised my hat, she raised her eyes,
It was easy as ABC.
The trees were full of birds, the birds were full of song,
The song kept saying kiss her tenderly,
So I raised my arms, she raised her lips,
And now she belongs to me.
I said, would you like to cuddle, would you like a little bit of love,
She said of course I'd like to cuddle, what do you think that I'm made of.
Now we've got a house, a house that's full of rooms,
And naturally we've got a nursery,
Cos I raised my hat, she raised her eyes,
Now we're raising a family.

Blue moon you saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
Blue moon, you knew just what I was there for
You heard me saying a prayer for
Someone I really could care for
And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will ever hold
I heard somebody whisper "Please adore me"
And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold!
Blue moon!
Now I'm no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own.

Old Man River, that Old Man River
He must know somethin', but he don't say nothin'
He just keeps rollin', he keeps on rollin' along

He don't plant taters, and he don't plant cotton
And them what plants them is soon forgotten
But Old Man River, jest keeps rollin' along

You and me, we sweat and strain
Bodies all achin' and wracked with pain
Tote that barge and lift that bale
You get a little drunk and you lands in ja-ail

I gets weary and sick of tryin'
I'm tired of livin', but afraid of dyin'
And Old Man River, he just keeps rollin' along.

Here's one that was written in the year I was born, 1925.

I don't care what you used to be
I know what you are today,
If you love me and I love you
Who cares what the world may say,
I was no angel in days gone by,
But you asked no questions so why should I,
I don't care what you used to be
I know what you are today.

Ah, sweet mystery of life
At last I've found thee
Ah, at last I know the secret of it all
All the longing, seeking, striving, waiting, yearning

The burning hopes, the joy and idle tears that fall
For 'tis love and love alone, the world is seeking
And 'tis love and love alone that can repay
'Tis the answer, 'tis the end and all of living

For it is love alone that rules for aye
Love and love alone, the world is seeking
For 'tis love and love alone that can repay
'Tis the answer, 'tis the end and all of living
For it is love alone that rules for aye.

Regretting instead of forgetting with somebody else

Why should there be two happy as we?
Can you see the why or wherefore,
I should be the one you care for?

You're a lucky boy, I am lucky too,
All our dreams of joy seem to come true.
Maybe that's because you love me,
Maybe that's why I love you!

Can't help lovin' that man of mine

Tell me he's lazy
Tell me he's slow
Tell me I'm crazy, maybe, I know
Can't help lovin' that man of mine

When he goes away

And when he comes back that day is fine

He can come home as late as can be
Home without him ain't no home to me

 I know you see through me
 But there’s no tenderness

For all we know
This may only be a dream
We come and go
Like the ripples on a stream
So love me tonight
Tomorrow was made for some
Tomorrow may never come
For all we know.

Love is a many splendored thing
It's the April rose
That only grows in the early spring
Love is nature's way of giving
A reason to be living
The golden crown that makes a man a king.

Love walked right in and drove my troubles away,
Love walked right in and brought my sunniest day,
One magic moment and my heart seemed to know
That love said hello, though not a word was spoken,
One look and I forgot the gloom of the past,
One look and I had found my future at last,
One look and I had found a world completely new
When love walked in with you.

It's a kind of magic,
It's a kind of magic,
A kind of magic,

One dream, one soul, one prize,
One goal, one golden glance of what should be,

It's a kind of magic,

One shaft of light that shows the way,
No mortal man can win this day,

It's a kind of magic

You sigh, the song begins, you speak and I hear violins
It's magic
The stars desert the skies and rush to nestle in your eyes
It's magic

Without a golden wand or mystic charms
Fantastic things begin when I am in your arms

When we walk hand-in-hand, the world becomes a wonderland
It's magic
How else can I explain those rainbows when there is no rain?
It's magic

Why do I tell me myself these things that happen are all really true
When in my heart I know the magic is my love for you?

Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
There's a land that I've heard of once in a lullaby.
Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream,
Really do come true.

Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops,
High above the chimney tops,
That's where you'll find me.

When you wish upon a star  Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires Will come to you

If your heart is in your dream No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star As dreamers do.
Fate is kind, She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of Their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star Your dreams come true.

From : Disney's Pinocchio

What romantic little souls we all are!  :)

I left my heart in San Francisco
High on a hill, it calls to me
To be where little cable cars climb halfway to the stars
The morning fog may chill the air, I don't care

My love waits there in San Francisco
Above the blue and windy sea
When I come home to you, San Francisco
Your golden sun will shine for me

Stars shining bright above you
Night breezes seem to whisper I love you
Birds singing in the sycamore tree
Dream a little dream of me
 
Say night-ie night and kiss me
Just hold me tight and tell me you'll miss me
While I'm alone and blue as can be
Dream a little dream of me
 
Stars fading but I linger on, dear
Still craving your kiss
I'm longing to linger till dawn, dear
Just saying this
 
Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you
But in your dreams whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me

I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high and life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I prayed that God would be forgiving

Then I was young and unafraid
And dreams were made and used and wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung, no wine untasted

There's nothing I can do about it
Loving may be all you can give

To be killed in nasty ways
Brave, brave, brave, brave Sir Robin

He was not in the least bit scared
To be mashed into a pulp
Or to have his eyes gouged out
And his elbows broken
To have his kneecaps split
And his body burned away
And his limbs all hacked and mangled
Brave Sir Robin

His head smashed in
And his heart cut out
And his liver removed
And his bowels unplugged
And his nostrils raped
And his bottom burnt off
And his penis split and his...

Cortez The Killer

He came dancing across the water
With his galleons and guns
Looking for the new world
In that palace in the sun.

On the shore lay Montezuma
With his coca leaves and pearls
In his halls he often wondered
With the secrets of the worlds.

And his subjects gathered 'round him
Like the leaves around a tree
In their clothes of many colors
For the angry gods to see.

And the women all were beautiful
And the men stood straight and strong
They offered life in sacrifice
So that others could go on.

Hate was just a legend
And war was never known
The people worked together
And they lifted many stones.

They carried them to the flat lands
And they died along the way
But they built up with their bare hands
What we still can't do today

And I know she's living there
And she loves me to this day
I still can't remember when
Or how I lost my way.

He came dancing across the water
Cortez, Cortez
What a killer.

When you're alone and life is making you lonely
You can always go downtown
When you've got worries, all the noise and the hurry
Seems to help, I know, downtown

Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty
How can you lose?
The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares

So go downtown
Things will be great when you're downtown
No finer place for sure, downtown
Everything's waiting for you

Don't hang around and let your problems surround you
There are movie shows downtown
Maybe you know some little places to go to

Start spreading the news
I am leaving today
I want to be a part of it
New York, New York

These vagabond shoes
Are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it
New York, New York

I want to wake up in a city
That doesn't sleep
And find I'm king of the hill
Top of the heap

These little town blues
Are melting away
I'll make a brand new start of it
In old New York

If I can make it there
I'll make it anywhere
It's up to you
New York, New York.

Tom, get your plane right on time
 I know your part'll go fine
 Fly down to Mexico
 Doh-n-doh-de-doh-n-doh
 And here I am
 The only living boy in New York
 
I get the news I need
 On the weather report
 Oh, I can gather all the news I need
 On the weather report
 Hey, I've got nothing to do today
 But smile, de-doh-n-doh-de-doh

I've teamed up with the hippies now
I've got my fringe unfurled
I want to give peace, love and kisses out
to this whole stinking world
The gypsies, the travellers and the thieves
The good, the bad, the average and unique
The grebos the crusties and the goths
And the only living boy in New Cross

One hundred stories high
People gettin' loose, y'all
You gettin' down on the roof
Let me hear

The folks was flamin'
Out of control
It was so entertainin'
When the boogie start 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

He was a famous trumpet man from out Chicago way
He had a boogie style that no one else could play
He was the top man at his craft
But then his number came up and he was gone with the draft
He's in the army now, a-blowin' reveille
He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B.

Furry Sings the Blues

Old Beale Street is coming down
Sweeties' Snack Bar, boarded up now
And Eagles The Tailor and the Shine Boy's gone
Faded out with ragtime blues
Handy's cast in bronze
And he's standing in a little park
With a trumpet in his hand
Like he's listening back to the good old bands
And the click of high heeled shoes
Old Furry sings the blues
Propped up in his bed
With his dentures and his leg removed
And Ginny's there
For her kindness and Furry's beer
She's the old man's angel overseer

Pawn shops glitter like gold tooth caps
In the gray decay
They chew the last few dollars off
Old Beale Street's carcass
Carrion and mercy
Blue and silver sparkling drums
Cheap guitars, eye shades and guns
Aimed at the hot blood of being no one
Down and out in Memphis Tennessee
Old Furry…

Birth of the Blues.
They heard the breeze in the trees
Singing weird melodies
And they made that, the start of the blues
And from a jail came the wail of a down-hearted frail
And they played that as a part of the blues

From a whippoorwill way upon a hill
They took a new note
Pushed it through a horn
Until it was worn into a blue note

And then they nursed it
They rehearsed it
And then sent out that news
That the Southland gave birth to the blues.

"Summer Breeze"

See the curtains hanging in the window
 In the evening on a Friday night
 A little light shining through the window
 Let me know everything is alright, sing this song

 Summer breeze makes me feel fine
 Blowin' through the jasmine in my mind
 Hear me sing, summer breeze makes me feel fine
 Blowin' through the jasmine in my mind

 See the paper lying on the sidewalk
 A little music from the house next door
 So I walk on up to the doorstep
 Through the screen and across the floor

 Summer breeze makes me feel fine
 Blowin' through the jasmine in my mind
 Sing it, summer breeze makes me feel fine
 Blowin' through the jasmine in my mind, yeah

 When I come home from a hard day's work
 And you're waitin' there not a care in the world

 See the smile a waitin' in the kitchen
 Food cooking and the plates for two
 Feel the arms that reach out to hold me
 In the evenin' when the day is through

 Summer breeze makes me feel fine
 Blowin' through the jasmine in my mind
 Summer breeze makes me feel fine
 Blowin' through the jasmine in my mind

 Here we go, summer breeze makes me feel fine
 Blowin' through the jasmine in my mind
 Come on, summer breeze makes me feel fine
 Blowin' through the jasmine in my mind

Every little breeze seems to whisper "Louise."
Birds in the trees seem to twitter "Louise."
Each little rose tells me it knows I love you, love you.
Every little beat that I feel in my heart
Seems to repeat what I felt at the start.
Each little sigh tells me that I adore you, Louise.

Rita was sixteen years
Hazel eyes and chestnut hair
She made the Woolworth counter shine
And Eddie was a sweet romancer
And a darn good dancer
And they waltzed the aisles of the five and dime
And they'd sing
Dance a little closer to me
Hey, dance a little closer now
Dance a little closer tonight
Dance a little closer to me
Hey, it's closing time
And love's on sale
Tonight at this five and dime

Slightly off kilter here - but there is something about those lyrics that brings Stephen King to mind when he's not in full horror mode.

Anyhoo.....

One time
You made me cry
Be proud that I
Remember

My chin is sore
The bruise is gone
But the spot is tender

Gave my hand a sister coy
To Cotton Alley where
You did enjoy
Your wicked games
You curious boy

Tied my laces up together
When I fell
You laughed
Until your belly was sore

In the brick laid aisle behind
The five and dime store

I work at the Palace Ballroom, but,
gee that Palace is cheap;
When I get back to my chilly hall room
I'm much too tired to sleep.
I'm one of those lady teachers,
a beautiful hostess, you know,
the kind the Palace features
for only a dime a throw.

Ten cents a dance
that's what they pay me,
gosh, how they weigh me down!
Ten cents a dance
pansies and rough guys,
tough guys who tear my gown!
Seven to midnight I hear drums.
Loudly the saxophone blows.
Trumpets are tearing my eardrums.
Customers crush my toes.
Sometime I think
I've found my hero,
but it's a queer romance.
All that you need is a ticket,
Come on, big boy, ten cents a dance.

Still, half a sixpence
Is better than half a penny
Is better than half a farthing
Is better than none
It’s a token of
Our eternal love
When you’re far away
Touch it everyday
And, though, that half a sixpence
Can only mean half a romance
Remember that half a romance
Is better than none
But when I’m with you
One and one make two
And, likewise, two half sixpences
Joined together make one

But that doesn't mean I love you less
And he knows you can't possess me and he knows he never will
There's just this empty place inside of me that only he can fill

Loving both of you is breaking all the rules

I will wander through your brain
To the ventricles of your heart, my dear
I'm in love with you again!
Across the mountains of your chest
I will stick a Union Jack
To the forest of your cheek, ah...
Through the holes in your string vest!

My darling
In my cardboard-coloured dreams
Once again I hear your laugh
And I kiss, yes, I kiss your perfumed hair
The sweet essence of giraffe


And each time I hear your name
Oh, oh, oh, my, my...how...how it hurts!
In the wardrobe of my soul
In the section labelled "Shirts"

A taste of honey.
 Tasting much sweeter than wine.
 I dream of your first kiss and then,
 I feel upon my lips again,
 A taste of honey.
 Tasting much sweeter than wine.
 I will return,
 Yes I will return,
 I'll come back
 For the honey,
 And you.
 Yours was the kiss that awoke my heart,
 There lingers still, 'though we're far apart,
 That taste of honey... Tasting much sweeter than wine.
 I will return, yes I will return,
 I'll come back
 For the honey,
 And you.

Through a meadow land toward a closing door
A door marked "nevermore" that wasn't there before

The lonely night discloses just a passing breeze filled with memories
Of the golden smile that introduced me to
The days of wine and roses and you

That you no longer care
The breeze and I are whispering goodbye
To dreams we used to share

Ours was a love song that seemed constant as the moon
Ending in a strange, mournful tune
And all about me, they know you have departed without me

And we wonder why, the breeze and I
The breeze and I.

Ode to Boy

When he moves I watch him from behind
 He turns and laughter flickers in his eyes
 Intent and direct when he speaks, I watch his lips
 And when he drives I love to watch his hand
 White and smooth almost feminine, almost American, I have to watch him.

 In his face age descends on youth, exaggeration on the truth
 He caught me looking then but soon his eyes forgot
 And everything he seems to do reflects just another shade of blue
 I saw him searching into you and ached a while

I watch his lips caress the glass,
 His fingers stroke its stem and pass
 To lift a cigarette at last, he dries his eyes
 From a shadow by the stair
 I watch as he weeps unaware
 That I'm in awe of his despair, but I am there

Although I'm quite aware that here and there are traces of the cad

Beware, my foolish heart
How white the ever constant moon
Take care, my foolish heart
There's a line between love and fascination
That's hard to see on an evening such as this
For they both give the very same sensation
When you are lost in the magic of a kiss

Her lips are much too close to mine
Beware, my foolish heart
But should our eager lips combine
Then let the fire start

Telephone's ringin', it's your second cousin
Is it the barmaid that's smilin' from the corner of her eye?
Magic of the melancholy tear in your eye
Makes it kind of quiver down in the core
'Cause you're dreamin' of them Saturdays that came before
And now you're stumblin'
You're stumblin' onto the heart of Saturday night
Well you gassed her up
And you're behind the wheel
With your arm around your sweet one
In your Oldsmobile
Barrellin' down the boulevard,
You're lookin' for the heart of Saturday night

You sigh, the song begins, you speak and I hear violins
It's magic
The stars desert the skies and rush to nestle in your eyes
It's magic
Without a golden wand or mystic charms
Fantastic things begin when I am in your arms

When we walk hand in hand, the world becomes a wonderland
It's magic
How else can I explain those rainbows when there is no rain
It's magic
Why do I tell me myself these things that happen are all really true.

People stay just a little bit longer
 We want to play, just a little bit longer

Now the promoter don't mind
 And the union don't mind
 If we take a little time
 And we leave it all behind and sing
 One more song

Oh won't you stay
 Just a little bit longer
 Please please please, say you will
 Say you will

As a union man I'm wise
To the lies of the company spies
And I don't get fooled by the factory rules
'Cause I always read between the lines

And I always get my way
If I strike for higher pay
When I show my card to the Scotland Yard
And this is what I say:

Oh, oh, you don't get me, I'm part of the union
You don't get me, I'm part of the union
You don't get me, I'm part of the union
Til the day I die
Til the day I die

Oh, oh, what are we gonna do?
 Union, Union, Union City blue
 Tunnel to the other side
 It becomes daylight
 I say he's mine

Oh power, passion plays a double hand
 Union, Union Union City man
 Arrive, climb up four flights
 To the orange side
 Rearrange my mind
 In turquoise Union, Union, Union City blue
 Skyline, passion, Union City blue


(For me the best of Blondie's output - it's the opening of the song that clinches it)

Hey driver, where we're going?
I swear my nerves are showing
Set your hopes up way too high
The living's in the way we die
Comes the morning and the headlights fade away
Hundred thousand people, I'm the one they blame
I've been waiting long for one of us to say
Save the darkness, let it never fade away
Ah, ah, the living daylights
Ah, ah, the living daylights.

 I know your part'll go fine
 Fly down to Mexico
 Do-n-do-d-do-n-do and here I am,
 The only living boy in New York

I get the news I need on the weather report
 I can gather all the news I need on the weather report
 Hey, I've got nothing to do today but smile

South of the border, down Mexico way.
That's where I fell in love where stars above, came out to play.
And now as I wonder, my thoughts ever stray.
South of the border, down Mexico way.

She was a picture, in old Spanish ways.
Just for a tender while I kissed the smile, upon her face.
For it was fiesta, and love had it's day.
South of the border, down Mexico way.

Blue Spanish eyes
Teardrops are falling from your Spanish eyes
Please, please don't cry

This is just adios and not goodbye
Soon I'll return
Bringing you all the love your heart can hold
Please say "Si, si"
Say you and your Spanish eyes will wait for me

Blue Spanish eyes
Prettiest eyes in all of Mexico
True Spanish eyes

Brazil, where hearts were entertaining June
We stood beneath an amber moon
And softly murmured "Someday soon"
We kissed and clung together

Then, tomorrow was another day
The morning found me miles away
With still a million things to say
Now, when twilight dims the sky above
Recalling thrills of our love
There's one thing I'm certain of
Return I will to old Brazil

On a day like today
We pass the time away
Writing love letters in the sand

How you laughed when I cried
Each time I saw the tide
Take our love letters from the sand

You made a vow that you would ever be true
But somehow that vow meant nothing to you

Now my broken heart aches
With every wave that breaks
Over love letters in the sand.

One day we walked along the sand
 One day in early spring
 You held a piper in your hand
 To mend its broken wing
 Now I'll remember many a day
 And many a lonely mile
 The echo of a piper's song
 The shadow of a smile

The shadow of your smile
 When you are gone
 Will color all my dreams
 And light the dawn
 Look into my eyes
 My love and see
 All the lovely things
 You are to me

Our wistful little star
 Was far too high
 A teardrop kissed your lips
 And so did I
 Now when I remember spring
 All the joy that love can bring
 I will be remembering
 The shadow of your smile

The song dream happened and the cloven hoofed piper
Played in that holy ground where they felt the awe and wonder
And they all were unafraid of the great god Pan

And the wind in the willows and the piper at the gates of dawn
The wind in the willows and the piper at the gates of dawn

They came from the hills
 And they came from the valleys and the plains
 They struggled in the cold
 In the heat and the snow and in the rain
 Came to hear him play
 Play their minds away

We're all following a strange melody
 We're all summoned by a tune
 We're following the piper
 And we dance beneath the moon
 We're following the piper
 And we dance beneath the moon for him
 And we dance beneath the moon
 Sub luna saltamus

Ahoy, ahoy, deceived and then punctured
Ahoy, ahoy, long may they die

Mourning in the aerodrome

Always look on the bright side of life

For life is quite absurd,
And death's the final word.
You must always face the curtain with a bow!
Forget about your sin -- give the audience a grin,
Enjoy it, it's the last chance anyhow!

So always look on the bright side of death!
Just before you draw your terminal breath.
Life's a piece of shit,
When you look at it.

Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true,
You'll see it's all a show,
Keep 'em laughing as you go.
Just remember that the last laugh is on you!

And always look on the bright side of life.

Keep right on to the end of the road,
Keep right on to the end,
Though the way be long, let your heart be strong,
Keep right on round the bend.
Though you're tired and weary still journey on,
Till you come to your happy abode,
Where all the love you've been dreaming of
Will be there at the end of the road.

The road is long
 With many a winding turn
 That leads us to who knows where
 Who knows where

But I'm strong
 Strong enough to carry him
 He ain't heavy, he's my brother

So on we go
 His welfare is of my concern
 No burden is he to bear
 We'll get there

For I know
 He would not encumber me
 He ain't heavy, he's my brother

If I'm laden at all
 I'm laden with sadness
 That everyone's heart
 Isn't filled with the gladness
 Of love for one another

It's a long, long road
 From which there is no return
 While we're on the way  to there
 Why not share

And the load
 Doesn't weigh me down at all
 He ain't heavy he's my brother

He's my brother
 He ain't heavy, he's my brother
 He ain't heavy, he's my brother


(.... a firm favourite!)

They used to tell me I was building a dream
And so I followed the mob
When there was earth to plow or guns to bear
I was always there right on the job.

They used to tell me I was building a dream
With peace and glory ahead
Why should I be standing in line
Just waiting for bread?

Once I built a railroad, I made it run
Made it race against time
Once I built a railroad, now it's done
Brother, can you spare a dime?

Once I built a tower up to the sun
Brick and rivet and lime
Once I built a tower, now it's done
Brother, can you spare a dime?

Ten cents a dance, pansies and rough guys, tough guys who tear my gown.
Seven to midnight I hear drums, loudly the saxophone blows,
Trumpets are tearing my ear-drums, customers crush my toes.
Sometimes I think, I've found my hero
But it's a queer romance
All that you need is a ticket,
Come on big boy, ten cents a dance.

Seventy-six trombones led the big parade
With a hundred and ten cornets close at hand.
They were followed by rows and rows of the finest virtuosos
The cream of every famous band.

Seventy-six trombones caught the morning sun
With a hundred and ten cornets right behind
There were more than a thousand reeds
Springing up like weeds
There were horns of every shape and kind.

There were copper bottom tympani in horse platoons
Thundering, thundering all along the way.
Double bell euphoniums and big bassoons,
Each bassoon having its big, fat say!

There were fifty mounted cannon in the battery
Thundering, thundering louder than before
Clarinets of every size
And trumpeters who'd improvise
A full octave higher than the score!

Well I find myself in reverie

Our friendship formed of pure innocence
We first met in Mathew Street

Sometimes I wonder
 Why I spend the lonely nights
 Dreaming of a song
 The melody
 Haunts my reverie
 And I am once again with you
 When our love was new
 And each kiss an inspiration
 Oh, but that was long ago
 Now my consolation is in the stardust of a song

Beside a garden wall, when stars are bright
 You are in my arms
 The nightingale
 Tells his fairytale
 Of paradise, where roses grew
 Though I dream in vain
 In my heart, it will remain
 My stardust melody
 The memory of love's refrain

Though I dream in vain
 In my heart, it will remain
 My stardust melody
 The memory of love's refrain

The whispers in the morning
Of lovers sleeping tight
Are rolling by like thunder now
As I look in your eyes.

I hold on to your whole body
And feel each move you make
Your voice is warm and tender
A love that I could not forsake.

'Cause I'm your lady
And you are my man
Whenever you reach for me
I'll do all that I can.

Lost is how I'm feeling lying in your arms
When the world outside's too much to take
That all ends when I'm with you.

Even though there may be times
It seems I'm far away
Never wonder where I am
'Cause I am always by your side.

We're heading for something
Somewhere I've never been
Sometimes I am frightened
But I'm ready to learn
Of the power of love.

Turn around, take one final look at what you've left behind
Then walk away
From the greatest lover you have ever known
Yes, walk away

By yourself, all alone, without my help
Mister, you just made a big mistake

The reason Nobody's home is because you are looking in Nobody's diary for the number:

If I wait for just a second more,
 I know I'll forget what I came here for,
 My head was so full of things to say,
 But as I open my lips all my words slip away
 and anyway,
 I can't believe you want to turn the page,
 And move your life onto another stage,
 You can change the chapter you can change the book,
 But the story remains the same if you'd take a look.


 For the times we've had I don't want to be - a page in your diary babe,
 For the good, the bad I don't want to see - a page in your diary babe,
 For the happy, the sad - I don't want to be another page in your diary.

But it soon is a hymn to your grace.
When the music swells
I'm touching you hand
It tells that you're standing near, and

At the sound of your voice
Heaven opens his portals to me.

That a song such as ours came to be?
But I always knew
I would live life through
With a song in my heart for you.

If your sweetheart sends a letter of goodbye
It's no secret you'll feel better if you cry
When waking from a bad dream
Don't you sometimes think it's real?
But it's only false emotions that you feel

If your heartaches seem to hang around too long
And your blues keep getting bluer with each song
Remember sunshine can be found behind a cloudy sky
So let your hair down and go on and cry.

Almost doing things we used to do
There's a girl here and she's almost you
Almost all the things that your eyes once promised
I see in hers too
Now your eyes are red from crying

Almost blue
Flirting with this disaster became me
It named me as the fool who only aimed to be

Almost blue
It's almost touching it will almost do
There's a part of me that's always true...always
Not all good things come to an end now it is only a chosen few
I've seen such an unhappy couple

Now you say you're lonely,
 You cry the whole night through.
 Well you can cry me a river,
 Cry me a river,
 I cried a river over you.

 Now you say you're sorry,
 For being so untrue.
 Well you can cry me a river,
 Cry me a river,
 I cried a river over you.

 You drove me, nearly drove me,
 Out of my head;
 While you never shed a tear.

 Remember, I remember,
 All that you said;
 Told me love was too plebeian,
 Told me you were through with me

 And Now you say you love me,
 Well, just to prove you do,
 Come on and cry me a river,
 Cry me a river,

 I cried a river over you
 I cried a river over you
 I cried a river over you
 I cried a river over you

Gonna see the river man
Gonna tell him all I can
About the plan
For lilac time

If he tells me all he knows
About the way his river flows
And all night shows
In summertime

We were sailing along on Moonlight Bay
We could hear the voices ringing
They seemed to say
"You have stolen her heart"
"Now don't go 'way"
As we sang love's old sweet song on Moonlight Bay.

I stand at your gate and the song that I sing is of moonlight
I stand and I wait for the touch of your hand in the June night
The roses are sighing a Moonlight Serenade.

The stars are aglow and tonight how their light sets me dreaming.
My love, do you know that your eyes are like stars brightly beaming?
I bring you and I sing you a Moonlight Serenade

Let us stray till break of day in love's valley of dreams.
Just you and I, a summer sky, a heavenly breeze kissin' the trees.

So don't let me wait, come to me tenderly in the June night.
I stand at your gate and I sing you a song in the moonlight
A love song, my darling, a Moonlight Serenade.

Stars shining bright above you
 Night breezes seem to whisper I love you
 Birds singing in the sycamore tree
 Dream a little dream of me

Say night-ie night and kiss me
 Just hold me tight and tell me you'll miss me
 While I'm alone and blue as can be
 Dream a little dream of me

Stars fading but I linger on, dear
 Still craving your kiss
 I'm longing to linger till dawn, dear
 Just saying this

Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
 Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you
 But in your dreams whatever they be
 Dream a little dream of me

From Russia with love I fly to you
Much wiser since my goodbye to you
I've travelled the world to learn
I must return from Russia with love

I've seen places, faces and smiled for a moment
But oh, you haunted me so
Still my tongue tied, young pride
Would not let my love for you show
I case you say no

To Russia I flew but there and then
I suddenly knew you'd care again
My running around is through
I fly to you, from Russia with love.

At first I was afraid, I was petrified
Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side
But then I spent so many nights thinking how you did me wrong
And I grew strong
And I learned how to get along
And so you're back
From outer space
I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face
I should have changed that stupid lock, I should have made you leave your key
If I'd known for just one second you'd be back to bother me
Go on now, go, walk out the door
Just turn around now
'Cause you're not welcome anymore
Weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
Do you think I'd crumble
Did you think I'd lay down and die?
Oh no, not I, I will survive.

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today.

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace.

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one.

There's a room where the light won't find you
 Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
 When they do, I'll be right behind you
 So glad we've almost made it
 So sad they had to fade it
 Everybody wants to rule the world

I can't stand this indecision
 Married with a lack of vision
 Everybody wants to rule the world

Say that you'll never, never, never, need it
 One headline, why believe it?
 Everybody wants to rule the world

All for freedom and for pleasure
 Nothing ever lasts forever
 Everybody wants to rule the world

If I ruled the world,
Every day would be the first day of spring,
Every heart would have a new song to sing,
And we'd sing of the joy every morning would bring.

If I ruled the world,
Every man would be as free as a bird,
Every voice would be a voice to be heard,
Take my word we would treasure each day that occurred.

My world would be a beautiful place,
Where we would weave such wonderful dreams.
My world would wear a smile on its face,
Like the man in the moon has when the moon beams.

If I ruled the world,
Every man would say the world was his friend,
There'd be happiness that no man coud end,
No my friend, not if I ruled the world.

Every head would be held up high,
There'd be sunshine in everyone's sky,
If the day ever dawned when I ruled the world.

Free as a bird
 It's the next best thing to be
 Free as a bird

Home, home and dry
 Like a homing bird I'll fly
 As a bird on wings

Whatever happened to
 The life that we once knew?
 Can we really live without each other?

Where did we lose the touch
 That seemed to mean so much?
 It always made me feel so

Free as a bird
 Like the next best thing to be
 Free as a bird

Away from the maddening crowds

Just like bird of a feather, a rainbow together we'll find.

Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away.

Come fly with me, let's take off in the blue.

With a song in my heart
I behold your adorable face.
Just a song at the start
But it soon is a hymn to your grace.
When the music swells
I'm touching you hand
It tells that you're standing near, and

At the sound of your voice
Heaven opens his portals to me.
Can I help but rejoice
That a song such as ours came to be?
But I always knew
I would live life through
With a song in my heart for you.

Always look on the bright side of life
If life seems jolly rotten,
There's something you've forgotten!
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing,
When you're feeling in the dumps,
Don't be silly chumps,
Just purse your lips and whistle -- that's the thing!
And always look on the bright side of life.

Are you still mine?
I need your love
I need your love

Lonely rivers flow
To the sea, to the sea
To the open arms of the sea
Lonely rivers sigh
"Wait for me, wait for me"
I'll be coming home, wait for me.

 And linger on my mind.

Leave your flowers at my door
 I'll leave them for the one who waits behind.

Nothing you can do, but you can learn
How to be you in time

Hey Jude, don't make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better
Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better.

Hey Jude, don't be afraid
You were made to go out and get her
The minute you let her under your skin
Then you begin to make it better.

Nobody does it better makes me feel sad for the rest
 Nobody does it half as good as you
 Baby, you're the best
 I wasn't lookin' but somehow you found me
 I tried to hide from your love light
 But like heaven above me the spy who loved me
 Is keepin' all my secrets safe tonight

Whippoorwills call, evenin' is nigh
Hurry to my blue heaven
Turn to the right, there's a little white light
Will lead you to my blue heaven

You'll see a smilin' face, a fireplace, a cozy room
Little nest that nestles where the roses bloom

Molly and me, and the baby makes three
We're happy in my, in my blue heaven.

Full of that yankee doodly dum
Half a million boots went sloggin' through hell
And I was the kid with the drum

Why don't you remember, I'm your pal

 A song of the clearances - tune 'Mist covered mountains'. This one always brings a tear. Hush, hush, time to be sleeping Hush, hush, no time for weeping Hush, hush, dreams come a creeping Smile in your sleep, bonnie baby. Once our valleys were ringing With sounds of our children singing Now sheep feed and bleat til the evening And ceilings stand empty and open Hush, hush..... We stood with heads bowed in prayer While factors laid our cottages bare And screams filled the clear mountain air And many were dead by the morning. Hush, hush.... Where was our proud highland mettle Our men once so fearless in battle Now stand cowed huddled like cattle And wait to be shipped o'er the ocean. Hush, hush, time to be sleeping Hush, hush, no time for weeping Hush, hush, dreams come a creeping Don't die in your sleep, bonnie baby.

... and off to Brigadoon ....
Can't we two go walking together, out beyond the valley of trees?
Out where there's a hillside of heather, curtsying gently in the breeze
That's what I'd like to do, see the heather, but with you.

The mist of May is in the gloaming, and all the clouds are holding still
So take my hand and let's go roaming through the heather on the hill.
The morning dew is blinking yonder, there's lazy music in the rill
And all I want to do is wander through the heather on the hill.

 I performed for you live not on tape.
 But the public is cruel when played for a fool
 As you see by the blood on my cape."

Father's name was Hezikiah
Mother's name was Ann Maria
Yanks through and through
Red, white and blue
Father was so Yankee hearted
When the Spanish War was started
He slipped upon his uniform
And hopped up on a pony
My mother's mother was a Yankee true
My father's father was a Yankee too
And that's going some
For the Yankees, by gum
Oh, say can you see
Anything about my pedigree that's phoney?

I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy
A Yankee Doodle, do or die
A real live nephew of my uncle Sam's
Born on the Fourth of July
I've got a Yankee Doodle sweetheart
She's my Yankee Doodle joy
Yankee Doodle came to London,
Just to ride the ponies
I am a Yankee Doodle boy

A foggy day, in London town
Had me low, had me down
I viewed the morning, with much alarm
British Museum, had lost its charm.

How long I wondered,
Could this thing last
But the age of miracles, hadn't passed
For suddenly, I saw you there
And through foggy London town,
The sun was shining everywhere.

The moon that lingered over London town
 Poor puzzled moon, he wore a frown.
 How could he know that we two were so in love?
 The whole darn world seemed upside down.

The streets of town were paved with stars,
 It was such a romantic affair.
 And as we kissed and said goodnight,
 A nightingale sang in Berkeley square.

Meanwhile in La La Land....
Him:
Some other girl and guy
Would love this swirling sky
But there's only you and I,
And we've got .. no shot
This could never be
You're not the type for me
And there's not a spark in sight
What a waste of a lovely night.

Her:
You say there's nothing here
Well let's make something clear
I think I'll be the one to make that call.
And though you look so cute
In your polyester suit
You're right.... I'd never fall for you at all.
And maybe this appeals
To someone not in heels
Or to any girl who feels
There's some chance ... for romance
But I'm frankly feeling nothing
Or it could be less than nothing
You're right ...What a waste of a lovely night.

Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.
And so I come to you my love,
My heart above my head.
Though I see the danger there.
If there's a chance for me, then I don't care

Fools rush in where wise men never go.
But wise men never fall in love,
So how are they to know
When we met, I felt my life begin.
So open up your heart and let this fool rush in.

Down among the dead men
Down among the dead men

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile what’s the use of crying
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you’ll just
Smile

Our love is a serenade
A song the heavens made and angels played
When first we kissed
We touched and I became divine my love
Because of you the stars that shine my love
They're mine my love.

A song of sweet desire
No earthly choir could quite resist
I have known the magic of
A theme that cannot fake
Our serenade of love.

Nobody else could miss her, not half as much as me
She cried, so when I left her it'd like to broke my heart
And if I'd ever find her, we never more will part
She's the sweetest little rosebud that Texas ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds; they sparkle like the dew
You may talk about, Clementine, and sing of Rosalee
But the yellow rose of Texas is the only girl for me

When you walk through a storm
Keep your chin up high
And don't be afraid of the dark
At the end of the storm

When two lovers meet in Mayfair, so the legends tell,
Songbirds sing; winter turns to spring.
Every winding street in Mayfair falls beneath the spell.
I know such enchantment can be, 'cos it happened one evening to me:

That certain night, the night we met,
There was magic abroad in the air,
There were angels dining at the Ritz,
And a nightingale sang in Berkeley Square.

And just before the dawn was breaking,

In gay profusion lying there,
Lovely ribbons, scarlet ribbons

If I live to be a hundred,
I will never, never know from where,
Came those lovely scarlet ribbons,
Scarlet Ribbons for her hair

Captain Scarlet,
 He's the one who knows the Mysterons' game,
 And things they plan.
 Captain Scarlet,
 To his Martian foes, a dangerous name,
 A Superman.

 They crash him, and his body may burn.
 They smash him, but they know he'll return,
 To live again.

 Captain Scarlet,
 As the Angels are flying, wing to wing,
 Into the scene,
 Spectrum is Green.

 Captain Scarlet,

 Though the Mysterons plan to conquer the Earth,
 This indestructible man will show what he's worth.

 Captain Scarlet,
 In-des-tructible,
 Captain Scarlet.

 Late today when it becomes tomorrow.
 I will leave to go away.
 Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye my love goodbye.
 Songs that lingered on my lips excite me now
 And linger on my mind.

Leave your flowers at my door
 I'll leave them for the one who waits behind.
 Far away my lover sings a lonely song
 And calls me to his side.
 When the song of lonely love
 Invites me on I must go to his side.
 Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye my love goodbye.

I behold your adorable face.
Just a song at the start
But it soon is a hymn to your grace.
When the music swells
I'm touching you hand
It tells that you're standing near, and

At the sound of your voice
Heaven opens his portals to me.

That a song such as ours came to be?
But I always knew
I would live life through
With a song in my heart for you.

Its a simple understanding
Of the way you hand it over
And hold on to it, too
With the lightness of a feather
Its the web that ties together
What is true

See the others flappin
With their fingers snappin
Tryin to make it happen, too...
Its a hymn to the grace
Thats found a place in you.

I've been so lonely she can't understand the way I feel
 I'm holding on, I'm walking home alone
 I'm here without her
 It seems that all the boys appreciate her
 All the girls speak highly of her energy
 D' you think that it could work for Jane and me

 'Cos I still want her, I still remember summer
 Way back when, we both felt the same
 And I still love her, I can't stop thinking of her
 I'm having trouble understanding Jane

One by one my marbles left me
 Jane would smile but never hold me
 One night at the pool hall
 Asked her if she'd hold my cue
 Can't impress her with no fancy car
 Resigned to lean here at the bar
 I'll lose my mind
 Shiver in responsibility

I was all right for a while, I could smile for a while
But I saw you last night, you held my hand so tight
As you stopped to say "Hello"

Aw you wished me well, you couldn't tell
That I'd been cwying over you, cwying over you
Then you said "so long". left me standing all alone
Alone and cwying, cwying, cwying cwying
It's hard to understand but the touch of your hand
Can start me cwying.

I thought that I was over you but it's true, so true
I love you even more than I did before but darling what can I do
For you don't love me and I'll always be
Cwying over you, cwying over you
Yes, now you're gone and from this moment on
I'll be cwying, cwying, cwying, cwying
Yeah cwying, cwying, over you.

Smile though your heart is aching
 Smile even though it's breaking.
 When there are clouds in the sky
 you'll get by.

If you smile through your fear and sorrow
 Smile and maybe tomorrow
 You'll see the sun come shining through
 For you.

Light up your face with gladness,
 Hide every trace of sadness.
 Although a tear may be ever so near

That's the time you must keep on trying
 Smile, what's the use of crying.
 You'll find that life is still worthwhile-
 If you just smile.

When you're smiling, when you're smiling
The whole world smiles with you.
When you're laughing, oh when you're laughing
The sun comes shining through.

But when you're crying, you bring on the rain
So stop that sighing, be happy again.
Keep on smiling, 'cause when you're smiling
The whole world smiles with you.

You've done it all, you've broken every code
 And pulled the rebel to the floor
 You spoilt the game, no matter what you say
 For only metal, what a bore!

Blue eyes, blue eyes
 How come you tell so many lies?

Come up and see me, make me smile
 Or do what you want, running wild

There's nothing left, all gone and run away
 Maybe you'll tarry for a while
 It's just a test, a game for us to play
 Win or lose, it's hard to smile

On a clear day
How it will astound you
That the glow of your being
Outshines every star
You'll feel part of every mountain sea and shore

A word you've never, never heard before...
And on a clear day...On a clear day...
You can see forever...

In the still of the night
As I gaze from my window
At the moon in its flight
My thoughts all stray to you
In the still of the night
All the world is in slumber
All the times without number
Darling when I say to you
Do you love me, as I love you
Are you my life to be, my dream come true
Or will this dream of mine fade out of sight
Like the moon growing dim, on the rim of the hill
In the chill, still, of the night
Like the moon growing dim, on the rim of the hill
In the chill, still, of the night.

Just one of those crazy flings
One of those bells that now and then rings
Just one of those things

It was just one of those nights
Just one of those fabulous flights
A trip to the moon on gossamer wings
Just one of those things

If we'd thought a bit, of the end of it
When we started painting the town
We'd have been aware that our love affair
Was too hot, not to cool down

So goodbye, dear, and Amen
Here's hoping we meet now and then
It was great fun
But it was just one of those things.

Yellow bird,
Up high in banana tree
Yellow bird

You sit all alone like me

   Did your lady friend
 Leave the nest again
 That is very sad
 Make me feel so bad

 You can fly away
 In the sky away
 You more lucky than me

 I also have a pretty man
 He not with me today
 They all the same
 The pretty men
 Make them the nest
 Then they fly away

If you can use some exotic booze
There's a bar in far Bombay
Come fly with me, let's fly let's fly away.

Come fly with me, let's float down to Peru
In lama land, there's a one man band
And he'll toot his flute for you
Come fly with me, let's take off in the blue.

The hills are alive with the sound of music
With songs they have sung for a thousand years
The hills fill my heart with the sound of music
My heart wants to sing every song it hears.

My heart wants to beat like the wings of the birds
That rise from the lake to the trees
My heart wants to sigh like a chime that flies
From a church on a breeze
To laugh like a brook when it trips and falls over
Stones on its way
To sing through the night like a lark who is learning to pray.

I go to the hills when my heart is lonely
I know I will hear what I've heard before
My heart will be blessed with the sound of music
And I´ll sing once more.

Moderator:

When this thread (and the previous one) first started it was based on connecting (albeit often tenuously) song titles thematically but more recently there has been a tendency to quote all or most of the lyrics of songs: where the song concerned is out of copyright there is no issue, but since that only applies to very old songs then most of the lyrics quoted will still be in copyright.

Therefore, can we ask that those wishing to quote lyrics to limit themselves to a couple of verses and/or the chorus along the same lines that we apply to quotes taken from books and newspaper/magazine articles - where if the C&P is more than around 4 paragraphs we ask for it to be truncated. Put simply: please avoid quoting the entire song lyric.

Swelled up from the rain, clouds move like a wraith
Well after all, we'll lie another day
And through it all, we'll find some other way
To carry on through cartilage and fluid
And did you come to stare or wash away the blood?

Well tonight, well tonight
Will it ever come?
Spend the rest of your days rocking out
Just for the dead
Well tonight
Will it ever come?
I can see you awake anytime, in my head

And lay your body down
The rhythm of this trembling heart
Is beating like a drum
It beats for you, it bleeds for you
It know not how it sound
For it is the drum of drums
It is the song of songs
Once I had rarest rose
That ever deigned to bloom.
Cruel winter chilled the bud
And stole my flower too soon.
Oh loneliness, oh hopelessness
To search the ends of time
For there is in all the world
No greater love than mine.

It gets harder for me
And you know it, know it, know it
Don't stop 'cause you know that I like it
Every time you walk in the room
You got all eyes on you
And you know it, know it, know it

I'd only just turned eighteen, she was thirty-nine,
But if that's the stuff that dreams are made of, be careful what you

Stars shining bright above you
Night breezes seem to whisper "I love you"
Birds singing in the sycamore trees
Dream a little dream of me.

Say nighty-night and kiss me
Just hold me tight and tell me you'll miss me
While I'm alone and blue as can be
Dream a little dream of me.

One time ago a crazy dream came to me
I dreamt I was walkin' into World War Three
I went to the doctor the very next day
To see what kinda words he could say
He said it was a bad dream
I wouldn't worry 'bout it none, though
Them old dreams are only in your head

I've never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight
I've never seen you shine so bright
I've never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance
They're looking for a little romance, given half a chance
And I have never seen that dress you're wearing
Or the highlights in your hair that catch your eyes
I have been blind.

The lady in red is dancing with me, cheek to cheek
There's nobody here, it's just you and me
It's where I want to be
But I hardly know this beauty by my side
I'll never forget the way you look tonight.

Mister Florist, take my order please,
We had a silly quarrel the other day
I hope these pretty flowers, chase her blues away.

Wrap up some red roses for a blue lady,
Send them to the sweetest gal in town,
And if they do the trick, I'll hurry back to pick
Your best white orchid for her wedding gown.

Moon river, wider than a mile
I'm crossing you in style someday
You dream maker
You heartbreaker
Where ever you're going I'm going your way.

Two drifters off to see the world
There's such a lot of world to see
We're after the same rainbow's end
Waiting round the bend
My huckleberry friend
Moon river and me.

'm sitting in the railway station.
Got a ticket to my destination.
On a tour of one-night stands my suitcase and guitar in hand.
And every stop is neatly planned for a poet and a one-man band.
Homeward bound,
I wish I was,
Homeward bound,
Home where my thought's escaping,
Home where my music's playing,
Home where my love lies waiting
Silently for me.

Someday I'm coming back, and it won't be long
Before you call me and tell me to come home
Someday I'm coming back, and it won't be long
Before I'm home, home and in your arms.

What did I do my darling? That made you send me running
Told you to cast me down and throw me out
What can I tell you honey, If I don't know what I've done
All I can hope is that you ask me to come back home.

Yes, they'll all come to meet me, arms reaching, smiling sweetly.
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.

Then I awake and look around me, at the four grey walls that surround me
and I realize, yes, I was only dreaming.
For there's a guard and there's a sad old padre -
arm in arm we'll walk at daybreak.
Again I touch the green, green grass of home.
Yes, they'll all come to see me in the shade of that old oak tree
as they lay me neath the green, green grass of home.

Buys an eight by twelve four-bit room

Moove closer
Moove your body real close

The last waltz should last forever
But the love we had was goin' strong
Through the good and bad we'd get along
And then the flame of love died in your eye
My heart was broke in two when you said goodbye

The last waltz should last forever

And still have begged for more
I could have spread my wings

I only know when she began to dance with me
I could have danced, danced, danced all night.

Regretting instead of forgetting

Dancing in the dark,
Till the tune end
We’re dancing in the dark,
And it soon ends.
We’re waltzing in the wonder
Of why we’re here;
Time hurries by,
We’re here and gone.
Looking for the light
Of a new love
To brighten up the night.
I have you to love,
And we can face the music together;

Tender hands to hold me, I need tender hands tonight,
Will you lay them on my shoulders,
Will you lay them on my eyes,
And I need tender hands to take me,
All the way to paradise, and then, when it's over,
I need tender hands to hold me through the night;

I'll build a stairway to Paradise
With a new step every day !
I'm gonna get there at any price;
Stand aside, I'm on my way !
I've got the blues
And up above it's so fair.
Shoes ! Go on and carry me there !
I'll build a stairway to Paradise
With a new step every day.

She gotta dance, she gotta dance
 And she can't stop 'till them shoes come off
 These shoes do, a kind of voodoo
 They're gonna make her dance 'till her legs fall off

My lady loves to dance, my lady loves to sing
My lady has the sparkle of a diamond ring
When purple shadows fall and silver moonlight beams
My lady love to dance in my dreams
She loves a carousel, a roller coaster ride
A party or a picnic by the ocean side
And like a laughing brook the dancers in the sun
My lady has a barrel of fun
Life is a gay thing, play thing, hit parade thing
Not a worry not a care
If there's a trombone toottin' a flute a-fluttin'
Sure as shootin' we'll be there
My lady loves to dance, my lady loves to sing
A schottische or a polka or a gaylin' fling
And when we kiss goodnight the moment we're apart
My lady loves to dance, my lady loves to sing
Sing and dance in my heart

You can dance every dance with the guy
Who gives you the eye, let him hold you tight
You can smile every smile for the man
Who held your hand neath the pale moon light
But don't forget who's taking you home
And in whose arms you're gonna be
So darling save the last dance for me.

 Say, we can act if we want to
 If we don't, nobody will
 And you can act real rude and totally removed
 And I can act like an imbecile

 And say, we can dance, we can dance
 Everything's out of control
 We can dance, we can dance
 They're doing it from pole to pole
 We can dance, we can dance
 Everybody look at your hands
 We can dance, we can dance
 Everybody's taking the chance
 Safety dance

Heaven, I'm in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek.

Heaven, I'm in heaven
And the cares that hung around me through the week
Seem to vanish like a gambler's lucky streak
When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek.

I'm singing in the rain
Just singing in the rain
What a glorious feeling
I'm happy again
I'm laughing at clouds
So dark up above
The sun's in my heart
And I'm ready for love
Let the stormy clouds chase
Everyone from the place
Come on with the rain
I've a smile on my face
I walk down the lane
With a happy refrain
I'm singing and dancing in the rain!

When you see a guy reach for stars in the sky
You can bet that he's doing it for some doll.
When you spot a John waiting out in the rain
Chances are he's insane as only a John can be for a Jane.
When you meet a gent paying all kinds of rent
For a flat that could flatten the Taj Mahal.
Call it sad, call it funny.
But it's better than even money
That the guy's only doing it for some doll.

Love is a many splendoured thing
It's the April rose that only grows in the early Spring.
Love is nature's way of giving a reason to be living
The golden crown that makes a man a king.
Once on a high and windy hill, In the morning mist
Two lovers kissed and the world stood still,
Then your fingers touched my silent heart and taught it how to sing
Yes, true love's a many splendoured thing.

March went out like a lion
Awakin' up the water in the bay;
Then April cried and stepped aside,
And along came pretty little May!
May was full of promises
But she didn't keep 'em quickly enough for some
And the crowd of doubtin' Thomases
Was predictin' that the summer'd never come
June is a love song, sweetly song
June is bustin' out all over!

I really can't stay - Baby it's cold outside
I've got to go away - Baby it's cold outside
This evening has been - Been hoping that you'd drop in
So very nice - I'll hold your hands, they're just like ice

My mother will start to worry - Beautiful, what's your hurry?
Father will be pacing the floor - Listen to the fireplace roar
So really I'd better scurry - Beautiful, please don't hurry
Maybe just a half a drink more - Put some records on while I pour.

He works from nine to five and then

To find me waitin' for him

Only when he gives me, makes me feel alright

I'll be right there,
I've got my fare!
When I see that rusty-haired conductor man,
I'm gonna grab by the collar
And I'll holler,
"Alabam'! Alabam'!".

That's where you stop your train
That brings me back again,
Down home where I'll remain
Where my honey lamb am!
I will be right there with bells
When that old conductor yells,
"All aboard, all aboard, all aboard for Alabam!".

Come fly with me, we'll fly, we'll fly away
If you can use some exotic booze
There's a bar in far Bombay
Come on fly with me, we'll fly, we'll fly away.

Come fly with me, will float down to Peru
In llama-land there's a one-man band
And he'll toot his flute for you
Come on fly with me, we'll float down in the blue.

Once I get you up there
Where the air is rarefied
We'll just glide
Starry-eyed
Once I get you up there
I'll be holding you so near
You might hear
All the angels cheer because we're together.

Fall to the ground and I wake up
So I get out of bed, put on my shoes and in my head
Thoughts fly back to the breakup
These four wall are closing in
Look at the fix you put me in
Since you been gone
Since you been gone
I'm out of my head can't take it
Could I be wrong
But since you been gone
You cast your spell so break it
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh

Night breezes seem to whisper "I love you"

Dream a little dream of me.

Somewhere over the rainbow way up high
There's a land that I heard of once in a lullaby
Somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.

Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far
Behind me
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me.

So when the winds are howling strong
And you think you can't go on, hold tight, sweetheart

You'll find a rainbow, rainbow, baby
Trust me, I know life is scary
But just put those colors on, girl
Come and play along with me tonight
You gotta learn to let go, put the past behind you

Those gleaming eyes and freckled smile light up the night
Here we are alone
My lips on yours
The taste of candy and salt drives me for more
Tied to my urn with your ball-point pen
Say you love me again and again
There will never be an end
To this love my dear friend

Paint me red in places once filled with gold

Got a brrr, brrr, brrr, brrr, busy line
Each time I tried I got a busy tone
Not my baby's number
Just a brrr, brrr, brrr, brrr, busy line

Called his uncle in Jamaica
Left a message with the baker
Even checked the number in the telephone book
Got so awfully, awfully worried
To my baby's house I hurried
When I looked inside, the phone was off the hook.

And as I walked up to my baby - then
I got my baby's number
He was busy in the parlour doing fine
Busy kissing someone else

Getting a brrr, brrr, brrr, brrr, busy line.

Smiling in the crowd I try

The tears of a clown
When there's no one around, oh yeah, baby

Can happen in a show;
You can make 'em laugh,

Where the villain is mean,

Mm, the good life lets you hide all the sadness you feel
You won't really fall in love for you can't take the chance
So please be honest with yourself, don't try to fake romance

It's the good life to be free and explore the unknown

Well, just wake up, kiss the good life goodbye

Wake up it's a beautiful morning
The sun shining for your eyes
Wake up it's so beautiful
For what could be the very last time
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up

I know that I'm alive

All my worries die
I'm glad that I'm alive

Well, you can tell by the way I use my walk,
I'm a woman's man: no time to talk.
Music loud and women warm, I've been kicked around
Since I was born.
And now it's all right. It's OK.
And you may look the other way.
We can try to understand
The New York Times' effect on man.

Whether you're a brother or whether you're a mother,
You're staying alive, staying alive.
Feel the city breaking and everybody shaking,
And we're staying alive, staying alive.
Ah, ha, ha, ha, staying alive, staying alive.
Ah, ha, ha, ha, staying alive.

He had a home, love of a girl
But men get lost sometimes as years unfurl
One day, he crossed some line, and he was too much in this world
But I guess it doesn't matter anymore

In a New York minute, everything can change
In a New York minute, you can get out of the rain
In a New York minute, everything can change
In a New York minute

I like New York in June, how about you?
I like a Gershwin tune, how about you?
I love a fireside when a storm is due
I like potato chips, moonlight, motor trips, how about you?

I'm mad about good books, can't get my fill
And James Durantes looks give me a thrill
Holding hands in the movie show
When all the lights are low may not be new
But I like it, how about you?

Every day's an endless stream
Of cigarettes and magazines.
And each town looks the same to me,
the movies and the factories
And every stranger's face I see
reminds me that I long to be,

Homeward bound,
I wish I was homeward bound,
Home where my thought's escaping,
Home where my music's playing,
Home where my love lies waiting silently for me.

Oh yeah, you caught me. But I caught you one worse
They say, "You want a war? You've got a war."
But who are you fighting for?
The tides out, the ship's run aground
We drown traitors in shallow water

With your backless black dress soaked to the skin

And we're friends, yeah we're friends
Just because we move units

Cold wind blows right thru' my open door

Stars shining bright above you
Night breezes seem to whisper "I love you"
Birds singing in the sycamore trees
Dream a little dream of me.

Say nighty-night and kiss me
Just hold me tight and tell me you'll miss me
While I'm alone and blue as can be
Dream a little dream of me.

Taking any comfort that I can
Looking back and longing for the freedom of my chains

Singing somewhere in the lonely night
Dreaming of the arms that held me tight
If you could only hear me now

Time after time
I see reflections of you and me
Reflections of
The way life used to be
Reflections of
The love you took from me
Oh, I'm all alone now
No love to shield me
Trapped in a world
That's a distorted reality
Happiness you took from me
And left me alone
With only memories

Just how wonderful you are

Strands of light upon a bedroom floor
Change the night through an open door

For the first time I'm not alone
Reaching out I touch another skin
Breathing out as he is breathing in
Deep inside I feel my soul aflame
Can my love ever be the same?

Once there was a thing called spring
When the world was writng verses
Like yours and mine.

All the lads and girls would sing
When we set a little tables
And drank May wine.

Now April May and June
Are sadly out of tune
Life has stuck the pin in the baloon.

Spring is here!
Why doesn't my heart go dancing ?
Spring is here!
Why isn't the waltz entrancing?
No desire, no ambition leads me,
Maybe it's because nobody needs me.

Grab your coat and get your hat
Leave your worries on the doorstep
Life can be so sweet
On the sunny side of the street.

Can't you hear the pit-a-pat?
And that happy tune is your step
Life can be complete
On the sunny side of the street.

I used to walk in the shade
With those blues on parade
But I'm not afraid
Because this rover crossed over.

Why am I feeling when things could look black
That nothing could possibly go wrong?
This has been a most unusual day:
Love has made me see things in a different way.
Can it be? I like myself.
She likes me, so I like myself.
If someone wonderful as she is can think I'm wonderful

Gonna treat her like a real man can
She's fearless, she's free

And as I stared I counted
The Webs from all the spiders
Catching things and eating their insides
Like indecision to call you
And hear your voice of treason
Will you come home and stop the pain tonight
Stop this pain tonight

How do we sleep

What a difference a day made
Twenty-four little hours
Brought the sun and the flowers
Where there used to be rain.

My yesterday was blue, dear
Today I'm a part of you, dear
My lonely nights are through, dear
Since you said you were mine.

Time on my hands, you in my arms
Nothing but love in view
Then if you fall, once and for all
I'll see my dreams come true.

Moments to spare with someone you care
For one love affair for two
And so with time on my hands and you in my arms
And love in my heart all for you.

My day in the hills
 Has come to an end, I know
 A star has come out
 To tell me it's time to go
 But deep in the dark green shadows
 There are voices that urge me to stay
 So I pause and I wait and I listen
 For one more sound
 For one more lovely thing
 That the hills might say!

And I'm wishing on tomorrow, praying it'll come
And I'm wishing on all the loving we've ever done.

And now every April I sit on my porch
And I watch the parade pass before me
I see my old comrades, how proudly they march
Reliving their dreams of past glory
I see the old men, all twisted and torn
The forgotten heroes of a forgotten war
And the young people ask me, "what are they
Marching for?"
And I ask myself the same question
And the band plays Waltzing Matilda
And the old men still answer to the call
But year after year their numbers get fewer
Some day no one will march there at all

Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
Who'll go a-Waltzing Matilda with me?

On a bright cloud of music shall we fly?
Shall we dance?
Shall we then say "Goodnight and mean "Goodbye"?
Or perchance,
When the last little star has left the sky,
Shall we still be together
With are arms around each other
And shall you be my new romance?
On the clear understanding
That this kind of thing can happen,
Shall we dance?
Shall we dance? Shall we Dance?

And I can act like an imbecile
I say we can dance we can dance

Realized what you gotta do

Feels the way I do, about you now

I've got no kick against modern jazz
Unless they try to play it too darn fast
And lose the beauty of the melody
Until they sound just like a symphony

That's why I go for that that rock and roll music
Any old way you choose it
It's got a back beat, you can't lose it
Any old time you use it
It's gotta be rock and roll music
If you wanna dance with me
If you wanna dance with me

She loves him, she loves him but

Or where she's gonna go
I guess she's got her reasons
But I just don't want to know
'Cos for twenty-four years
I've been living next door to Alice
Twenty-four years just waiting for a chance
To tell her how I feel, and maybe get a second glance
Now I've got to get used to not living next door to Alice...

We grew up together
Two kids in the park
We carved our initials
Deep in the bark
Me and Alice
Now she walks through the door
With her head held high
Just for a moment, I caught her eye
As a big limousine pulled slowly
Out of Alice's drive

Left me standing all alone
Alone and crying, crying
Crying, crying

It's hard to understand
But the touch of your hand
Can start me crying

I thought that I was over you

So long, see you honey

When I fall in love
It will be forever
Or I'll never fall in love.

In a restless world
Like this is
Love is ended before it's begun
And too many moonlight kisses
Seem to cool in the warmth of the sun.

Pen got a mind of it's own, gotta write my rhymes with a timer otherwise
I'll probably vibe out to a nine minute song
As the echo follows the Maserati
As the petrol swallows,
I'm a thousand bodies away from a skeleton
Check your bible inside it, it will say this guys an elephant

I write the songs, I write the songs.

Young girl, get out of my mind
My love for you is way out of line
Better run, girl,
You're much too young, girl
With all the charms of a woman
You've kept the secret of your youth
You led me to believe
You're old enough
To give me Love
And now it hurts to know the truth, Oh,
Beneath your perfume and make-up
You're just a baby in disguise

Half past twelve
And I'm watching the late show in my flat all alone
How I hate to spend the evening on my own
Autumn winds
Blowing outside the window as I look around the room
And it makes me so depressed to see the gloom

There's not a soul out there
No one to hear my prayer

Gimme, gimme, gimme a man after midnight
Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away?
Gimme, gimme, gimme a man after midnight
Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

Ever seen a blind man cross the road
 Trying to make the other side?
 Ever seen a young girl growing old
 Trying to make herself a bride?

 The handbags and the gladrags
 That your poor old Grandad had to sweat to buy you

I've been sitting here all day thinking
Same old thing ten years away thinking
Now my days are gone, memories linger on
Thoughts of when I was boy

Pennyfarthings on the street riding
Motorcars were funny things, frightening
Bow and hoops and spinning tops
Annie gretzel's lollipops
Comic cuts, all different things

Grandad, grandad you're lovely
That's what we all think of you
Grandad, grandad you're lovely
That's what we all think of you
Grandad grandad

Wondering who you've been kissing
Baby, oh-oh baby
I've been wandering all around
There must be a new guy in town
You don't love me any more
I'll get over you-a-oo baby
Although my heart's still sore
Well, you know my heart's still sore
Well, you know my heart's still sore
When I think of all the lies you told
To that young man my heart you've sold

Will you always be there for me?
I can't live without your lovin'
Baby, can't you see?
Baby, baby, baby
Tell me, do you love me now?
I can't wait to see your face everyday
I can't explain the way I feel when I'm around you
There's a space in my heart that belongs to only you
And no one else in this world comes close to you
Do you understand what I'm saying?
Do you understand me?
Got a thing for you, and I'm not playing

And walk on by

Just run, run away

Goodbye my love

Now that you've gone
I can't help but cry

I'm sad that I have been searchin so long
You, I love you but told you
Walk away, walk on, walk on

If your sweetheart send a letter of goodbye
It's no secret you'll feel better if you cry...
When waking from a bad dream
Don't you sometimes think it's real?
But it's only false emotions that you feel

If your heartaches seem to hang around too long
And your blues keep getting bluer with each song
Remember sunshine can be found
Behind a cloudy sky
So let your hair down and go on and cry.

Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no

Fairy tales can come true
It can happen to you if you're young at heart
For it's hard, you will find
To be narrow of mind if you're young at heart.

You can go to extremes with impossible schemes
You can laugh when your dreams fall apart at the seams
And life gets more exciting with each passing day
And love is either in your heart or on it's way.

To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star

Click to MTV so they can teach me how to dougie

It's a lovely day today
So whatever you've got to do
You've got a lovely day to do it in, that's true.

And I hope whatever you've got to do
Is something that can be done by two
For I'd really like to stay.

It's a lovely day today
And whatever you've got to do
I'd be so happy to be doing it with you.

I gotta have a reason to wake up in the morning
You used to be the one that put a smile on my face
There are no words that could describe how I miss you
And I miss you everyday
Yeah
And I'm never gonna leave your side
And I'm never gonna leave your side again
Still holding on girl
I won't let you go
'Cause when I'm lying in your arms
I know I'm home

Feelings, nothing more than feelings,
Trying to forget my feelings of love.
Tears drops rolling down on my face,
Trying to forget my feelings of love.

Feelings, for all my life I'll feel it.
I wish I've never met you, girl;
You'll never come again.
Feelings, wo-o-o feelings,
Wo-o-o, feel you again in my arms.

Feelings, feelings like I've never lost you
And feelings like I'll never have you
Again in my heart.

I could move a mountain when your hand is in my hand
Words cannot express how much you mean to me
There must be some other way to make you see
If it takes my heart and soul, you know I'd pay the price
Everything that I possess I'd gladly sacrifice
Oh, you to me are everything
The sweetest song that I could sing
Oh, baby, oh, baby

Listen baby, ain't no mountain high,
Ain't no valley low, ain't no river wide enough baby
If you need me call me no matter where you are
No matter how far; don't worry baby
Just call my name; I'll be there in a hurry
You don't have to worry.

Oh baby there ain't no mountain high enough
Ain't no valley low enough
Ain't no river wide enough
To keep me from getting to you babe

No ocean no valley no mountain too high
No power on earth there's no distance too wide
No height or no depth could keep me from Your love
No failure no weakness no doubt in my mind
No prison around me could keep you outside
No not even death can pull me from Your arms
Nothing ever could separate us
Nothing ever could separate us
Nothing ever could separate us now

Love is in the air everywhere I look around
Love is in the air every sight and every sound
And I don't know if I'm being foolish
Don't know if I'm being wise
But it's something that I must believe in
And it's there when I look in your eyes.

Love is in the air, in the whisper of the tree
Love is in the air in the thunder of the sea
And I don't know if I'm just dreaming
Don't know if I feel safe
But it's something that I must believe in
And it's there when you call out my name.

I never thought I'd miss you
Half as much as I do
And I never thought I'd feel this way
The way I feel about you
As soon as I wake up every night every day
I know that it's you I need
To take the blues away
It must be love, love, love
It must be love, love, love
Nothing more, nothing less
Love is the best

Never know how much I love you, never know how much I care

You give me fever - when you kiss me, fever when you hold me tight
Fever - in the the morning, fever all through the night.

There lived a certain man in Russia long ago
He was big and strong, in his eyes a flaming glow
Most people looked at him with terror and with fear
But to Moscow chicks he was such a lovely dear
He could preach the bible like a preacher
Full of ecstasy and fire
But he also was the kind of teacher
Women would desire

RA RA RASPUTIN
Lover of the Russian queen
There was a cat that really was gone
RA RA RASPUTIN
Russia's greatest love machine
It was a shame how he carried on

He cried like a baby

And he saddled his pony
and went for a ride

I am just a lonesome cowboy
And I'm travelling all alone
I ain't even got a nickel
To call my baby on the phone
Just beyond the mountain lies a city
And I hear it calling me
Saddle up and ride you lonesome cowboy
Here is where you'll find your destiny
In my dreams the lights shine bright and pretty
Near to me and yet so far
Will I always be a lonesome cowboy
Am I only reaching for a star

But I don't have a dime
Darlin' you're so far behind me
Tomorrow's gonna find me
Further down the line

Takin' me some paper
Pencil in my hand

Darlin' you know I feel the cold nights
Thinking of the old nights
Spent along with you

At the harvest fair she'll be surely there
And I'll dress in my Sunday clothes,
With my shoes shone bright and my hat cocked
Right for a smile from my nut brown rose.
No pipe I'll smoke, no horse I'll yoke
Till my plough turns rust coloured brown.
Till a smiling bride, by my own fireside
Sits the star of the County Down.

When Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, 'tis like the morn in Spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing.
When Irish hearts are happy,
All the world seems bright and gay.
And when Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, they steal your heart away.

I sit and wait
Does an angel contemplate my fate
And do they know
The places where we go
When we're grey and old
'Cause I have been told
That salvation lets their wings unfold
So when I'm lying in my bed
Thoughts running through my head
And I feel the love is dead
I'm loving angels instead

I'd appear in a vision
And I'd give my wings to you

To sing my love song to
And until the day that one comes along
I'll sing my song to you.

The saddest thing I've ever seen on my tv screen
Was a dying man who died for his dream
Toughest thing I've ever heard
Was that new-born scream in this naked world

People say I'm so automatic
People say I'm not so systematic
When I'm down I'm in manual, lord
And time on time again I walk on by
With the look of love

And with those angel eyes, woh woh
You set me on fire baby
And with those angel eyes, woh woh
C'mon now baby

Time on my hands, you in my arms
Nothing but love in view
Then if you fall, once and for all
I'll see my dreams come true.

Moments to spare with someone you care
For one love affair for two
And so with time on my hands and you in my arms
And love in my heart all for you.

When I've been following this thread, I couldn't help but notice certain patterns so I did a bit of analysis on the songs and artists
These are the most frequently posted songs with the number showing how many times they appeared
Blue Skies   6
Dream a Little Dream of Me    6
Love Is a Many Splendoured  Thing   6
With a Song in My Heart   6
Baby, It's Cold Outside   5
Don't Stop Me Now   5
Always Look on the Bright Side of Life   4
Angels   4
Come Fly With Me   4
Rock Around the Clock   4
Ten Cents a Dance   4


34 songs appeared 3 times


As for Artists it's a bit harder, many songs have many versions particularly those in the great American Songbook. I chose the ones that seemed most iconic to me - in some case like New York, New York this is easy but to take an example With a Song In My Heart which occurred 6 times is harder - I went with Mario Lanza as it is the first version I remember. So for artists the count was for those with 10 or higher


Frank Sinatra   37
Ella Fitzgerald   34
The Beatles   28
Nat King Cole   21
Bing Crosby   18
Doris Day   13
Judy Garland   13
Abba   12
Andy Williams   10
Dean Martin   10
Mario Lanza   10
Queen   10


Note I had a section of traditional songs that didn't seem to align to anyone and there 20 of those

The only solid conclusions I can draw from this analysis is that a) collectively we have quite excellent taste, and b) it does seem to point to an older demographic :(

Yes, I started keeping a list of the songs I have posted to try not to repeat any of them, but it still happens.  I'm not sure what the motive is for this thread but is surprises me how much ?rubbish? I still have stored in my memory banks whilst at the same time more 'important' things I forget.  Must be a sign of an extended and mis-spent youth.

You're not alone ekim!  Back to time, a fabulous song to listen to but not a love song (Pink Floyd):

Every year is getting shorter; never seem to find the time.
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines.
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way.
The time is gone, the song is over,
Thought I'd something more to say.

Home,
Home again.
I like to be here when I can.

When I come home
Cold and tired
It's good to warm my bones beside the fire.

Far away, across the field
The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spell.

We get locked into little loops on Dreams, Moonlight, Blue and Angels at times. It was that that triggered the number crunching.  Perhaps we need to write a forum song about Blue Angels in a Moonlight Dream.

But there was something missing in her eyes

I was stumbling, looking in the dark
With an empty heart
But you say you feel the same
Could we ever be enough?
Baby we could be enough

And it's alright
Calling out for somebody to hold tonight
When you're lost, you'll find a way
I'll be your light
You'll never feel like you're alone
I'll make this feel like home

Sometimes the man in me gets lonely,
When I am away from you,
And in the darkness of another hotel room,
If there's someone in the night saying,
"It's gonna be alright to ease away the pain of missing you,
What can I do?"

Strangers in the night
Exchanging glances
Wondering in the night

We'd be sharing love

Something in your smile
Was so exciting
Something in my heart told me I must have you.

Like those ships that pass in the night

A kiss is just a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh.

Give your heart and soul to me

Got a brrr, brrr, brrr, brrr, busy line
Each time I tried I got a busy tone
Not my baby’s number
Just a brrr, brrr, brrr, brrr, busy line

Called his uncle in Jamaica
Left a message with the baker
Even checked the number in the telephone book
Got so awfully, awfully worried
To my baby’s house I hurried
When I looked inside, the phone was off the hook.

Is it me you're looking for?
I can see it in your eyes
I can see it in your smile
You're all I've ever wanted
And my arms are open wide
'cause you know just what to say
And you know just what to do
And I want to tell you so much
I love you.

You better shape up, 'cause I need a man
And my heart is set on you
You better shape up, you better understand
To my heart I must be true
Nothing left, nothing left for me to do
You're the one that I want
(You are the one I want)
Ho, ho, ho honey
You're the one that I want

I, I who have nothing
I, I who have no one
Adore you and want you so
I'm just a no one with nothing to give you but, oh
I love you.

He, he buys you diamonds
Bright, sparkling diamonds
But, believe me, dear, when I say
That he can give you the world, but he'll never love you the way
I love you.

Money, get away
Get a good job with more pay and you're O.K.
Money, it's a gas
Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash
New car, caviar, four star daydream,
Think I'll buy me a football team

Money, get back
I'm all right, Jack, keep your hands off of my stack.
Money, it's a hit
Don't give me that do goody good bullshit
I'm in the hi-fidelity first class traveling set
And I think I need a Lear jet

 First you put your two knees close up tight
Then you sway 'em to the left and then you sway 'em to the right
 Step around the floor kinda nice and light
 Then you twist around twist around with all of your might
 Put your loving arms straight out in space
 Do the easy rock with style and grace
 Swing your foot way around and bring it back
 Now that's what I call ballin' the jack.

She said it's really not my habit to intrude
For the more I hope my meaning won't be lost or misconstrued
So I repeat myself, at the risk of being cruel
There must be fifty ways to leave your lover, fifty ways to leave your lover
Just slip out the back, Jack, make a new plan, Stan
Don't need to be coy, Roy, just listen to me
Hop on the bus, Gus, don't need to discuss much
Just drop off the key, Lee, and get yourself free

Oh, you had me several years ago
When I was still naive
Well, you said that we made such a pretty pair
And that you would never leave
But you gave away the things you loved
And one of them was me
I had some dreams, they were clouds in my coffee
Clouds in my coffee, and

You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain,
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you?
Don't you?

You're the best
Better than all the rest
Better than anyone
Anyone I've ever met
I'm stuck on your heart
I hang on every word you say
Tear us apart, no, no
Baby, I would rather be dead

You're the best

Nobody does it better
Makes me feel sad for the rest
Nobody does it half as good as you
Baby, you're the best.

I wasn't looking but somehow you found me
It tried to hide from your love light
But like heaven above me
The spy who loved me
Is keeping all my secrets safe tonight.

LA confidential, oh
'Cause you know I got somebody
So I can't fuck with just anybody
But sometimes I get lonely, I get lonely
So let me keep it real with you, real with you
Can't keep it real with me, real with me

A thousand hands applaud tonight
I sing my songs my star shines bright
I stop and smile, I take by bow
I leave the stage and then somehow
Backstage I'm lonely
Backstage I cry
You've gone away and each night I seem to die a little
Out on that stage I play the star
I'm famous now I've come so far
A famous fool I let love go
I didn't know I'd miss you so
Backstage I'm lonely
Backstage I cry
Hating myself since I let you say goodbye

I've been alive forever
And I wrote the very first song
I put the words and the melodies together
I am music and I write the songs.

I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs of love and special things
I write the songs that make the young girls cry
I write the songs, I write the songs.

Now when I see the things I want
I can take the things I see
But I keep asking myself why
And if there ain't just a little bit more for me
Here when it's time to count the cost
I keep measuring what I've lost
And wondering if you knew
It would all end up with you
Star maker
Dream breaker
Soul taker
We're happy now

To help me cope with anything
If you see the wonder of a fairy tale
You can take the future even if you fail
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I'll cross the stream - I have a dream.

I can't choose between Cinnamon and Evelyn
One of them a dancer with a body from Heaven
And then the other is a good girl, legs for breakfast
I'm tryin' to fit both into my world like Tetris
I'm no clown but I'm tryin' to juggle both
But both of them ain't feeling it
They say it's unappealing but I can't let them go
So I tell them the news
"You better work it out," 'cause I can't choose

Just like everybody else does

Hurt in the other one's eyes

Hey
Every kiss is a door
Can I knock on yours? Can we knock a little more?
If your touch is a key
Keep on twistin', keep unlockin', keep on turnin' me

[Pre-Chorus]
Let me in
I wanna be closer to you, let you under my skin
If I let you in
You gotta be careful with it
Let me tell you again (hey)

[Chorus]
Love so soft, you ain't had nothin' softer
Break it, then you buy it, and it sure gonna cost ya
Love so soft that you can't rub off
You gon' love it, if you try it
Got you hooked, now you're caught up
Love so soft, so soft (so soft)
Love so soft, so soft (so soft)

I've got you under my skin.
I've got you deep in the heart of me.
So deep in my heart that you're really a part of me.
I've got you under my skin.
I'd tried so not to give in.
I said to myself: this affair never will go so well.
But why should I try to resist when, baby, I know so well
I've got you under my skin?

I'd sacrifice anything come what might
For the sake of having you near
In spite of a warning voice that comes in the night
And repeats, repeats in my ear:
Don't you know, little fool, you never can win?
Use your mentality, wake up to reality.
But each time that I do just the thought of you
Makes me stop before I begin
'Cause I've got you under my skin.

Sitting in his nowhere land

I was slowly passing an orphan's home one day
And stop there for a moment just to watch the children play
Alone a boy was standing and when I asked him why
He turned with eyes that couldn't see and he began to cry
I'm nobody's child, I'm nobody's child
Just like a flower I'm growing wild
No mommy's kisses and no daddy's smiles
Nobody wants me, I'm nobody's child

Who would've known that I could conquer your heart
by reflecting in someone else.
And who would've thought that I could
comfort your heart, when I can't recognize myself.
I know how she speaks and how she moves
when she doesn't know what to say
Cause her emotions carry her away.
I watch it from my rooftop, every night.
And when I go to sleep she holds my head in her arms
And she makes sure that nothing will tear us apart
And then I steal a lock of her hair, and open up my eyes
I will follow you, you will be my main direction
I study you until I get your
Everything you do is a gem in my collection
I follow you until I get your perfection

Underneath the sun
You're my everything
Rolled up into one.
You're my only dream
My only real reality
You're my idea
Of a perfect personality.

You're my everything
Everything I need
You're the song I sing
And the book I read.
You're a way beyond belief
And just to make it brief
You're my winter, summer, spring
My everything.

 Anything from Faust to Ink-a-dink-a-dink
 Love does funny things
 When it hits you this way

I could go on singing till the cows come home

 When I see your eyes, I go all out
 I must vocalize till you shout, "Enough already"

You take the good
You take the bad
You take them both and there you have
The facts of life
The facts of life

When the world never seems
To be living up to your dreams
Then suddenly you're finding out
The facts of life are all about you

When there's someone that you care about
It really isn't fair
They're out to slow you up
When you're growing up

When you let them flirt
And then you hurt
A waiting when your date is late in showing up
Then you're growin' up

When it's more than just the birds and the bees
You need someone telling you please
There's only one conclusion
There will always be confusion over you
It takes a lot to get 'em right
When you're learning the facts of life

But it soon is a hymn to your grace
When the music swells
I'm touching you hand
It tells that you're standing near and

At the sound of your voice
Heaven opens it's portals to me

With a song in my heart for you.

Tune in to find my peace and solitude
These empty rooms spin, and I embrace the flaws of being human
The black and white, and sometimes the greys that stay for days
The in-between times, the meantimes that make this song of life sing
Play, rest, repeat, read exactly what is written on the sheet
"Don't deviate, " they say
But I will play what's best for me
I'll press the keys and pull the strings, create a symphony that's mine

And I'll spend my life penning my song, my song
And the verses I write will speak for me
Good girls don't make history
So I may never be what you assume (it's my song)
Don't want your hooks or auto-tune (it's my song)
If I'm off-key then that's alright with me (it's my song)
Oh, and maybe you will learn this when I'm gone (it's my song)
My song will carry on

Sometimes I get to feelin'
I was back in the old days - long ago
When we were kids, when we were young
Things seemed so perfect - you know?
The days were endless, we were crazy - we were young
The sun was always shinin' - we just lived for fun
Sometimes it seems like lately - I just don't know
The rest of my life's been - just a show.
Those were the days of our lives
The bad things in life were so few
Those days are all gone now but one thing is true -
When I look and I find I still love you.
You can't turn back the clock, you can't turn back the tide
Ain't that a shame?

And I'm gonna make sure it doesn't happen again,
You and I had to be the standing joke of the year,
You were a runaround, a lost and found and not for me, I feel,

Take your hands off me, hey,

But just take a chance and let me in
And I'll show you ways that you don't know
Don't complicate it,

Live this life of luxury

We only keep them up
For Americans to rent
Though the pipes that supply the bathroom burst
And the lavatory makes you fear the worst
It was used by Charles I
(Quite informally)

And later by George IV
On a journey north
The state departments keep their
Historical renown
It's wiser not to sleep there
In case they tumble down

But still, if they ever catch on fire
Which, with any luck, they might
We'll fight
For the stately homes of England

There's a crack up in the ceiling,
And the kitchen sink is leaking.
Out of work and got no money,
A Sunday joint of bread and honey.

What are we living for?
Two-roomed apartment on the second floor.
No money coming in,
The rent collector's knocking, trying to get in.

We are strictly second class,
We don't understand,
(Dead end!)
Why we should be on dead end street.

People are living on dead end street.

Gonna die on dead end street.

You think we look pretty good together
You think my shoes are made of leather
But I'm a substitute for another guy
I look pretty tall but my heels are high
The simple things you see are all complicated
I look pretty young, but I'm just back-dated, yeah

Don't you know that it's worth
Every treasure on earth to be young at heart
For as rich as you are
It's much better by far to be young at heart.

And if you should survive to a hundred and five
Look at all you'll derive out of being alive
And here is the best part, you have a head start
If you are among the very young at heart.

Well, you can tell by the way I use my walk
I'm a woman's man: no time to talk
Music loud and women warm, I've been kicked around
Since I was born
And now it's all right, it's okay
And you may look the other way
We can try to understand
The New York Times' effect on man
Whether you're a brother or whether you're a mother
You're stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Feel the city breakin' and everybody shakin'
And we're stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive

Start spreading the news
I am leaving today
I want to be a part of it
New York, New York

These vagabond shoes
They are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it
New York, New York

I want to wake up in that city
That doesn't sleep
And find I'm king of the hill
Top of the heap

My little town blues
They are melting away
I gonna make a brand new start of it
In old New York

Uptown girl
She's been living in her uptown world
I bet she's never had a backstreet guy
I bet her momma never told her why
I'm gonna try for an uptown girl
She's been living in her white bread world
As long as anyone with hot blood can
And now she's looking for a downtown man
That's what I am
And when she knows what
She wants from her time
And when she wakes up
And makes up her mind

When you're alone, and life is making you lonely
You can always go
Downtown
When you've got worries, all the noise and the hurry
Seems to help, I know
Downtown.

Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty
How can you lose?
The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
So go downtown, things 'll be great when you're
Downtown, no finer place for sure
Downtown everything's waiting for you

Paralyzed by my envy of the night
I am lost without you here
And outside it looks like rain
For the last time, I bleed myself dry tonight

And nothing I could ever write would help you understand this life
There's so much beauty when your eyes lay lost in all the city lights

Night time sharpens, heightens each sensation
Darkness stirs and wakes imagination
Silently the senses abandon their defenses
Slowly, gently night unfurls its splendor
Grasp it, sense it tremulous and tender
Turn your face away from the garish light of day
Turn your thoughts away from cold, unfeeling light
And listen to the music of the night.

When it feels like the world is on your shoulders
And all of the madness has got you going crazy.
It's time to get out, step out into the street
Where all of the action is right there at your feet
well, I know a place where we can dance the whole night away
Underneath electric stars
Just come with me and we can shake your blues right away
You'll be doing fine once the music starts, oh
To the beat of the rhythm of the night, dance until the morning light.

Rhiannon rings like a bell through the night
And wouldn't you love to love her?
Takes to the sky like a bird in flight
And who will be her lover?
All your life you've never seen a woman taken by the wind
Would you stay if she promised to you heaven?
Will you ever win?

She is like a cat in the dark
And then she is the darkness
She rules her life like a fine skylark
And when the sky is starless
All your life you've never seen a woman taken by the wind
Would you stay if she promised to you heaven?
Will you ever win?
Will you ever win?
Rhiannon

Dirty old river, must you keep rolling
Flowing into the night
People so busy, makes me feel dizzy
Taxi light shines so bright
But I don't need no friends
As long as I gaze on Waterloo sunset
I am in paradise

Every day I look at the world from my window
But chilly, chilly is the evening time
Waterloo sunset's fine

Walk a mile to drink your water
You know I'd love to love you
And above you there's no other
We'll go walking out
While others shout of war's disaster
Oh, we won't give in
Let's go living in the past

Once I used to join in
Every boy and girl was my friend
Now there's revolution, but they don't know
What they're fighting
Let us close our eyes
Outside their lives go on much faster
Oh, we won't give in

Before you go make this moment sweet again
We won't say "good night" until the last minute
I'll hold out my hand and my heart will be in it

For all we know this may only be a dream
We come and go like a ripple on a stream
So love me tonight; tomorrow was made for some
Tomorrow may never come for all we know.

 Strangers in many ways
 We've got a lifetime to share
 So much to say
 And as we go
 From day to day
 I'll feel you close to me
 But time alone will tell
 Let's take a lifetime to say
 "I knew you well"
 For only time will tell us so
 And love may grow
 For all we know.

Ah! Sweet mystery of life
At last I've found thee
Ah! I know at last the secret of it all;
All the longing, seeking, striving, waiting, yearning.

The burning hopes, the joy and idle tears that fall!
For 'tis love, and love alone, the world is seeking,
And 'tis love, and love alone, that can repay!
'Tis the answer, 'tis the end and all of living.

Sometimes I wonder, how I spend
The lonely nights
Dreaming of a song
The melody
Haunts my reverie
And I am once again with you
When our love was new
And each kiss an inspiration
But that was long ago
And now my consolation is in the stardust of a song.

I gave you all the that I had.
I believed every word you said.
And now you're back here to say, "Girl, I'm Sorry",
Boy, you know you're so lame, lame
And now you wanna come back,
you're crazy that's just a fact.
You can kick, can shout, can scream,
you're words don't mean a thing
Too bad, too late
I've made my new selection
Too bad, too late
I don't need your affection
Too bad, too late
It's too late for redemption
Too bad, too late
So find some consolation

If you're in love, show me
Tell me not dreams, filled with desire
If you're on fire, show me.

Never do I ever want to hear another word
There isn't one, I haven't heard
Here we are together in what ought to be a dream
Say one more word and I'll scream.

You know what I mean
I took you to an intimate restaurant
Then to a suggestive movie
There's nothing left to talk about
Unless it's horizontally
Let's get physical, physical
I want to get physical
Let's get into physical
Let me hear your body talk, your body talk
Let me hear your body talk

Soon my fantasies will turn to dust
But I would give him anything he asked
If my first love could be my last

Don't try to ignore the rain
When it's not sunny

Do you have a clue how much I am afraid for you
All the things trapped in your heart
Are gonna find their way out
I know that you're going to be broken eventually
But I'm hoping for a healing starting
With your life
And love
Relationships
But this is life
This is love and we're wasting it

Didn't know the hurt and pain that you'd make

But why did it take so long?
At last now I've seen the light

Waiting for you to bring me down

No more the nights, lying awake
Crying and waiting for the day to break.

More than you, more than you know
I'm slowly getting closure
I guess it's really over
I'm finally gettin' better
Now I'm picking up the pieces
From spending all of these years
Putting my heart back together
Putting my heart back together

And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I'll say it clear
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain
I've lived a life that's full
I've traveled each and every highway
But more, much more than this
I did it my way.

Regrets, I've had a few
But then again, too few to mention
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption
I planned each charted course
Each careful step along the byway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way.

Come on back, see me when you can
Man, I can understand how it might be
Kinda hard to love a girl like me
I don't blame you much for wanting to be free
I just wanted you to know
I've loved you better that your own kin did
From the very start it's my own fault
What happens to my heart
You see I've always known you'd go

So you just do what you gotta do, my wild sweet love
Though it may mean that I'll never kiss those sweet lips again
Pay that no mind, find that dappled dream of yours
Come on back and see me when you can

Met you for the first time late last week
Came to dinner, it could've been bleak
But I held back
Held myself on track

Question of etiquette
Or maybe just regret

Noticed your blond hair
Your blue eyes too
I might have seemed quiet, a little shrewd
I didn't wanna touch you
You seemed so new
But you looked just like me
Eighteen years ago

Are the stars out tonight?
I don't know if it's cloudy or bright
'Cause I only have eyes for you, dear
The moon may be high
But I can't see a thing in the sky
'Cause I only have eyes for you.

I don't know if we're in a garden
Or on a crowded avenue
You are here, so am I
Maybe millions of people go by
But they all disappear from view
And I only have eyes for you.

This is the story of a starry night,
The faded glory of a new delight
One breathless meeting,

Two lips repeating
Three precious words that were sweet but fleeting...

Strangers in the night
Exchanging glances
Wondering in the night
What were the chances
We'd be sharing love
Before the night was through?
Something in your eyes
Was so inviting
Something in your smile
Was so exciting
Something in my heart told me I must have you

From Westwood to Hollywood
The one thing that's understood
Is that you can't buy time but you can sell your soul
And the closest thing to heaven is to rock and roll

And somewhere in my heart
There is a star that shines for you
Silver splits the blue
Love will see it through

And somewhere in my heart
There is the will to set you free
All you've got to be is true

When the going gets tough
Just remember it's me and you for life
And when the world is not enough
Baby, are we worth the fight?

Feeling empty, feeling used
It's like we're running off fumes
A little broken, confused
But one thing I know for sure

Ain't giving up on you, ain't giving up on you
Ain't giving up on you, ain't giving up on you
Ain't giving up on you

Ain't no stoppin' us now
We're on the move
Ain't no stoppin' us now
We've got the groove.

There've been so many things that have held us down
But now it looks like things are finally comin' around,
I know we've got a long, long way to go
And were we'll end up, I don't know.

But we won't let nothing hold us back
We're gonna get ourselves together
We're gonna polish up our act,
And if you've ever been held down before
I know that you refuse to be held down any more.

Meeting Mr. Right, the man of my dreams
The one who shows me true love or at least it seems
With brown cocoa skin and curly black hair
It's just the way he looks at me that gentle loving stare

Finally you've come along
The way I feel about you it just can't be wrong
If you only knew, the way I feel about you
I just can't describe it, oh no no

Some day, when I'm awfully low,
When the world is cold,
I will feel a glow just thinking of you
And the way you look tonight.

You're lovely, with your smile so warm
And your cheeks so soft,
There is nothing for me but to love you,
And the way you look tonight.

With each word your tenderness grows,
Tearing my fears apart
And that laugh that wrinkles your nose,
Touches my foolish heart.

It seems you can't hear me
When I open my mouth you never listen
You say stay, but what does that mean
Do you think that I honestly want to be reminded forever?
Don't waste your time trying to fix
What I want to erase
What I need to forget
Don't waste your time on me my friend
Friend, what does that even mean
I don't want your hand
You'll only pull me down
So save your breath
Don't waste your song on me, on me
Don't waste your time

At first I was afraid, I was petrified
Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side
Then I spent so many nights Just thinking how you did me wrong
And I grew strong
And I learned how to get along

And so you're back from outer space
I just walked in to find you here, with that look upon your face
I should have changed that stupid lock
I should have made you leave your key
If I had known for just one second you'd be back to bother me

Go on now, go walk out the door
Just turn around now
'Cause you're not welcome anymore
Weren't you the one who tried to break me with goodbye?
Did you think I'd crumble?
Did you think I'd lay down and die?
Oh no not I, I will survive.

She said "Yes" but you weren't alone
Well, sometimes I think that you're avoiding me
I'm okay alone, but you got something I need
Well, I got a brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key

There's nothing much to take

But I'm absolutely sane

I absolutely love you
But we're absolute beginners
With eyes completely open
But nervous all the same.

A man could have bad dreams and not be all he seems
Yet not be far-removed from all the noblest of extremes
Sometimes I think that sanity is just a passing fad
A man could go quite mad
Unblessed are the dull. One ceaseless, peaceless lull
One wondrous night
Storm-struck thund'rous light
Will cast me right
A sculptor lacking arms, a sorc'ror lacking charms
A fiend who frightens no one for there's no one that he harms
Whose clutches clutch at only desp'rate respite
From this dim tableau!
Knowing this is so, I hide myself in thought
Where one cannot be caught
And feed on dreams that contradicts each
Edict I've been taught
And if someday I lose my way and mind
You'll find me glad -
A man could go quite, man could go quite
Man could go quite mad!

He's a real nowhere man
Sitting in his nowhere land
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody

Doesn't have a point of view
Knows not where he's going to
Isn't he a bit like you and me?

Nowhere Man, please listen
You don't know what you're missing
Nowhere Man, the world is at your command

He's as blind as he can be
Just sees what he wants to see
Nowhere Man can you see me at all?

As I was slowly passing by an orphan's home one day,
I thought I'd stop a little while just to watch the children play.
Alone, a boy was standing, and when I asked him why,
He turned with eyes that could not see and this was his reply.

I'm nobody's child, nobody's child.
I'm like a flower, just growing wild.
No mommy's kisses and no daddy's smiles,
Nobody wants me, I'm nobody's child.

I turned my back
You were gone in a flash
Like you always do
You've always gone off somewhere else
And when the phone rang
And I thought it was you
And I sprung like a kid who just got out of school
But it's almost always never you, never you
I screamed like a child
My insides went wild
When I'm alone with you
You make me feel, you make me feel
When I'm alone with you
You are the one, you are the one

You turned your head,
You dropped my hand.
All my sorrow, all my blues,
All my sorrow.
Shut me up, go away.
Fool of grace, you cover your face.
Kid, precious kid,
Your eyes are blue but you won't cry.
I know,
Angry tears are too dear, you won't let them go.

The only thing I ever got from you
Was sorrow, sorrow
You're acting funny, try to spend my money
You out there playing your high class games
Of sorrow, sorrow
You never do what you know you ought to
Something tells me you're the devil's daughter
Sorrow, sorrow
I tried to find her cause I can't resist her
I never knew just how much I missed her
Sorrow, sorrow

See I've come to burn your kingdom down
And no rivers and no lakes can put the fire out

See they were there when I woke up this morning
I'll be dead before the day is done

They asked me how I knew my true love was true,
I of course replied, something here inside cannot be denied.
They said someday you'll find all who love are blind,
When your heart's on fire, you must realize,
Smoke gets in your eyes.
So I chaffed and then I gaily laughed,
To think that they could doubt my love,
Yet today, my love has flown away,
I am without my love.
Now laughing friends deride tears I cannot hide,
So I smile and say when a lovely flame dies,
Smoke gets in your eyes.

No more the fool.

Nooooo!!! Sometimes when I copy something - then copy something else - the first thing I've copied comes up (once I posted something about Mick Jagger when my response should have been something serious and insightful!). It happens.  Hope the following makes up for it.

I'm a fool to want you
I'm a fool to want you
To want a love that can't be true
A love that's there for others too
I'm a fool to hold you
Such a fool to hold you
To seek a kiss not mine alone
To share a kiss the Devil has known

Fools rush in, where angels fear to tread
And so I come to you my love
My heart above my head
Though I see the danger there
If there's a chance for me
Then I don't care.

Fools rush in, where wise men never go
But wise men never fall in love
So how are they to know
When we met, I felt my life begin
So open up your heart and let
This fool rush in.

Love is a losing game,
and love can be a shame,
I know of a fool you see,
for that fool is me,
tell me why-ah ah ah ah ah,
tell me why?

Why do birds sing so gay?
And lovers await the break of day,
Why do they fall in love?
Why does the rain fall from up above?
Why do fools fall in love?
Why do they fall in love?

How sweet to be an Idiot,
As harmless as a cloud,
Too small to hide the sun,
Almost poking fun
At the warm but insecure, untidy crowd.
How sweet to be an idiot,
And dip my brain in joy,
Children laughing at my back,
With no fear of attack,
As much retaliation as a toy.

How sweet to be an idiot. How sweet.

The French are glad to die for love
They delight in fighting duels
But I prefer a man who lives
And gives expensive jewels
A kiss on the hand may be quite continental
But diamonds are a girl's best friend.

A kiss may be grand but it won't pay the rental
On your humble flat, or help you at the automat
Men grow cold as girls grow old
And we all lose our charms in the end
But square-cut or pear-shaped
These rocks don't lose their shape
Diamonds are a girl's best friend.

There’s a land that’s fair and bright
Where the handouts grow on bushes

The rock-rye springs where the whang-doodle sings

Some things in life are bad
They can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse
When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best
And
Always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the light side of life.

If life seems jolly rotten
There's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing
When you're feeling in the dumps
Don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle, that's the thing
And
Always look on the bright side of life

I hear singing and there's no one there
I smell blossoms and the trees are bare
All day long I seem to walk on air
I wonder why
I wonder why
I keep tossing in my sleep at night
And what's more I've lost my appetite
Stars that used to twinkle in the skies
Are twinkling in my eyes
I wonder why

You don't need analyzing
It is not so surprising
That you feel very strange but nice
Your heart goes pitter patter
I know just what's the matter
Because I've been there once or twice
Put your head on my shoulder
You need someone who's older
A rubdown with a velvet glove
There is nothing you can take
To relieve that pleasant ache
You're not sick
You're just in love.

When I fall in love
It will be forever
Or I'll never fall in love.
In a restless world
Like this is
Love is ended before it's begun
And too many moonlight kisses
Seem to cool in the warmth of the sun.

When I give my heart
It will be completely
Or I'll never give my heart
And the moment I can feel that
You feel that way too
Is when I'll fall in love
With you.

Won't you hold me in your arms
And keep me safe from harm
I want to run to you (oooh)
But if I come to you (oooh)
Tell me, will you stay or will you run away

No more talk of 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 waking moment,
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.

Just runnin' scared
Each place we go
So afraid
That he might show
Yeah, runnin' scared
What would I do
If he came back
And wanted you?
Just runnin' scared
Feelin' low
Runnin' scared
You love him so
Just runnin' scared
Afraid to lose
If he came back
Which one would you choose?

The sky was blue
And high above
The moon was new
And so was love
This eager heart of mine was singing
Lover where can you be.

You came at last
Love had it's day
That day is past
You've gone away
This aching heart of mine is singing
Lover come back to me.

This is the first time until today
That you have to run away
I'm asking you for the first time baby
Love me enough to stay
Stay
Hey
Hey

Come back
Baby, come back
Come back
Baby, come back

I must admit I was a clown
To be messin' around
But that dosen't mean
That you 'ave to leave town
Come back

Are we a pair?
Me here at last on the ground,
You in mid-air,
Where are the clowns?

Isn't it bliss?
Don't you approve?
One who keeps tearing around,
One who can't move,
Where are the clowns?
There ought to be clowns?

I guess it's funnier from where you're standing
'Cause from over here I miss the joke
Clear the way for my crash landing
I've done it again
Another number for your notes
I'd be smiling if I wasn't so desperate
I'd be patient if I had the time
I could stop and answer all of your questions
As soon as I find out
How I can move from the back of the line

I'll be your clown
Behind the glass
Go 'head and laugh
'Cause it's funny
I would too if I saw me
I'll be your clown
On your favorite channel
My life's a circus, circus
Round in circle
I'm selling out tonight

I love your funny face
Your sunny, funny face
Though you're a cutie
With more than beauty
You've got a lot of
Personal-I-ty for me.

You fill the air with smiles
For miles and miles and miles
Though you're no Mona Lisa
For world's I'd not replace
Your sunny-- funny face.

Ha, there goes the funny man
The life of the party, that's me

And they'd never guess
That I had a care
They'd be amazed to see me cry
When the party's through
Cry over you

Talk loud, funny man
In the crowd, funny man
You're in rare form today

One of us is crying
One of us is lying
In her lonely bed
Staring at the ceiling
Wishing she was somewhere else instead
One of us is lonely
One of us is only
Waiting for a call
Sorry for herself, feeling stupid feeling small
Wishing she had never left at all.

When will I see you again?
You left with no goodbye, not a single word was said
No final kiss to seal anything
I had no idea of the state we were in

I know I have a fickle heart and a bitterness
And a wandering eye, and a heaviness in my head
But don't you remember, don't you remember?
The reason you loved me before
Baby please remember me once more

When will we share precious moments
Will I have to wait forever
Will I have to suffer
And cry the whole night trough?
When will I see you again
When will our hearts beat together?
Are we in love or just friends?
Is this my beginning
Or is this the end?
When will I see you again?

With your body and the sun
Yes, you are
You've read Karl Marx
And you've taught yourself to dance
You're the best by far
But you keep asking the question
Oh, you're not supposed to mention
When will I, will I be famous?

When I was just a little girl
I asked my mother
What will I be
Will I be pretty
Will I be rich
Here's what she said to me

Que sera, sera
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours to see
Que sera, sera
What will be, will be

Since I am just a boy
At school I asked my
Teacher what should I try
Should I paint pictures
Should I sing songs
This was her wise reply

Que sera, sera
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours to see
Que sera, sera
What will be, will be.

But there was someone else before me and it's her you're lovin' still
And I know no matter what I'd do I'm only second best
Only second best that's all I will ever be
Even though I'm second best you're still first with me
And I'll be loving you when they fall my hand I guess
I love you even though I know I'm only second best

Father has a business strictly second hand
Everything from toothpicks to a baby-grand
Stuff in our apartment came from father's store
Even clothes I'm wearing someone wore before
It's no wonder that I feel abused
I never get a thing that ain't been used
I'm wearing second hand hats
Second hand clothes
That's why they call me
Second hand Rose.

Even our piano in the parlor
Daddy bought for ten cents on the dollar
Second hand pearls
I'm wearing second hand curls
I never get a single think that's new
Even Jake, the plumber, he's a man I adore
He had the nerve to tell me he's been married before!
Everyone knows that I'm just
Second hand Rose
From second Avenue!

To tell it is a must
About an unsung hero
That moves away your dust
Some people make a fortune
Other's earn a mint
My old man don't earn much
In fact....he's flippin'.....skint

Oh, my old man's a dustman
He wears a dustman's hat
He wears cor blimey trousers
And he lives in a council flat
He looks a proper narner
In his great big hob nailed boots
He's got such a job to pull em up
That he calls them daisy roots

But you'll look sweet upon the seat
Of a bicycle built for two.

Never sing for my supper
I never helped my neighbour
Never do what is proper
For my fair share of labour

I’m a poor boy
And I’m a rover
Count your coins and
Throw them over my shoulder
I may grow older

Nobody knows
How cold it grows
And nobody sees
How shaky my knees
Nobody cares
How steep my stairs
And nobody smiles
If I cross their stiles

Oh poor boy
So sorry for himself
Oh poor boy
So worried for his health

Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide,
No escape from reality.

Open your eyes,
Look up to the skies and see,
I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy,
Because I'm easy come, easy go,
Little high, little low,
Any way the wind blows doesn't really matter to me, to me.

Round
Like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning
On an ever-spinning reel
Like a snowball down a mountain
Or a carnival balloon
Like a carousel that's turning
Running rings around the moon
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping
Past the minutes of its face
And the world is like an apple
Whirling silently in space
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind

Blue moon you saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
Blue moon, you knew just what I was there for
You heard me saying a prayer for
Someone I really could care for
And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will ever hold
I heard somebody whisper "Please adore me"
And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold!
Blue moon!
Now I'm no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own.

And now, that dream is here beside me
Long, the skies were overcast, but now the clouds have passed

South of the border, down Mexico way.
That's where I fell in love where stars above, came out to play.
And now as I wonder, my thoughts ever stray.
South of the border, down Mexico way.

She was a picture, in old Spanish ways.
Just for a tender while I kissed the smile, upon her face.
For it was fiesta, and love had it's day.
South of the border, down Mexico way.

And meet senoritas by the score, Espana por favor

Quite by chance to hot romance I found the answer

And we paddled our feet,
And we watched all the swimmers,
And my holiday treat felt complete.
We drank lemonade,
And we sat in the shade,
I thought I must be on a winner
And I acted cool and discreet.
For I knew that Lavinia
Was the shyest lady that I'd ever met,
And I knew that Lavinia
Would only be my lady for the week.

It was just a holiday romance
A simple holiday romance.
I wonder should I take this chance?

Some one will come to show the way
I believe, I believe

Hears every word
Every time I hear a new born baby cry
Or touch a leaf or see the sky
I believe, I believe.

Let Go Of Yesterday

Once the clock strikes twelve
Yesterday is consigned to history
The yearning hand reaches backwards
Grasping the security blanket of yesterday
Today is already rushing on a pace
But the spectre of yesterday survives
Its ectoplasmic grasp weak but still palpable
Yesterday will be fixed in time as a fly in amber
It will remain unchanged despite our regret or longing
Forward facing we must walk through today
To reach the future promised by tomorrow
Reluctantly unclasping hands we let go of yesterday.

I've been kicked around since I was born
And now it's all right, it's okay
And you may look the other way
We can try, to understand
The New York Times' effect on man.

They seek him here, they seek him there
His clothes are loud, but never square
It will make or break him so he's got to buy the best
'Cause he's a dedicated follower of fashion
And when he does his little rounds
'Round the boutiques of London Town
Eagerly pursuing all the latest fads and trends
'Cause he's a dedicated follower of fashion
Oh yes he is (oh yes he is), oh yes he is (oh yes he is)
He thinks he is a flower to be looked at
And when he pulls his frilly nylon panties right up tight
He feels a dedicated follower of fashion

Silver rain was falling down
 Upon the dirty ground of london town.
 People pass me by on my imaginary street,
 Ordinary people it's impossible to meet,
 Holding conversations that are always incomplete.

Without love I have no pleasures
Without love my light is dim
Without love I have no treasures
Without love my chance is slim

Without love we are like ships in the night
Without love selling our souls down the river
Sailing away and forever
Our pleasure is blue

Love, love, love
Love, love, love
Love, love, love
There's nothing you can do that can't be done
Nothing you can sing that can't be sung
Nothing you can say, but you can learn how to play the game
It's easy
Nothing you can make that can't be made
No one you can save that can't be saved
Nothing you can do, but you can learn how to be you in time
It's easy
All you need is love, all you need is love
All you need is love, love, love is all you need.

I love you, 'cause you tell me things I want to know.
And it's true that it really only goes to show,
That I know,
That I, I, I, I should never, never, never be blue.
Now you're mine, my happiness still makes me cry.
And in time, you'll understand the reason why,
If I cry,
It's not because I'm sad, but you're the only love that I've ever had.
I can't believe it's happened to me
I can't conceive of any more misery.
Ask me why, I'll say I love you,
And I'm always thinking of you.

How can I tell you that I love you, I love you
But I can't think of right words to say
I long to tell you that I'm always thinking of you
I'm always thinking of you, but my words
Just blow away, just blow away
It always ends up to one thing, honey
And I can't think of right words to say
Wherever I am girl, I'm always walking with you
I'm always walking with you, but I look and you're not there.

If you go away
On this summer day
Then you might as well
Take the sun away
All the birds that flew
In the summer sky
When our love was new
And our hearts were high
And the day was young
And the night was long
And the moon stood still
For the night bird's song
If you go away

And save it for a rainy day

Oh, today
If troubles cast a shadow
And shadows make the sun afraid to stay

'Cause there'll be sunshine shinin'
And we'll find a silver linin'
Another day

Tomorrow is another day

Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Suddenly, I'm not half the man I used to be.

Her hair is Harlow gold
Her lips are sweet surprise
Her hands are never cold
She got Bette Davis eyes
She'll turn the music on you
You won't have to think twice
She's pure as New York snow
She got Bette Davis eyes

And she'll tease you, she'll unease you
All the better just to please you
She's precocious, and she knows just
What it takes to make a pro blush
She got Greta Garbo's standoff sighs, she's got Bette Davis eyes

Lookin' in your eyes I see a paradise
This world that I've found is too good to be true
Standin' here beside ya, want so much to give you
This love in my heart that I'm feelin' for you

Let 'em say we're crazy, I don't care about that
Put your hand in my hand, baby, don't ever look back
Let the world around us just fall apart
Baby, we can make it if we're heart-to-heart.

And we can build this dream together
Standing strong forever
Nothing's gonna stop us now
And if this world runs out of lovers
We'll still have each other
Nothing's gonna stop us, nothing's gonna stop us now.

When I wake up early in the morning
 Lift my head, I'm still yawning
 When I'm in the middle of a dream
 Stay in bed, float up stream (float up stream)
 Please don't wake me, no, don't shake me
 Leave me where I am
 I'm only sleeping
 Everybody seems to think I'm lazy
 I don't mind, I think they're crazy
 Running everywhere at such a speed
 Till they find there's no need (there's no need)
 Please don't spoil my day, I'm miles away
 And after all I'm only sleeping

So close your eyes and dream of it my darling
Till then goodnight, goodnight, sleep tight

When all I can do is watch you leave?
'Cause we've shared the laughter and the pain
And even shared the tears
You're the only one who really knew me at all
So take a look at me now
Well there's just an empty space
And there's nothing left here to remind me
Just the memory of your face

What good will it do me, I know what I'll find
An empty bottle, a broken heart and you're still on my mind.

I saw her today at the reception
A glass of wine in her hand
I knew she would meet her connection
At her feet was her footloose man

Thinking,
 Long ago when we were young and free
 Love happened easily and dreams never died
 Life sung a pretty song,
 Now those days are gone

 Crying,
 Finding comfort in the friends we knew
 Now it's just me and you trying alone
 We used to get along (we used to)
 Now those days are gone

 Playing with words
 When there's nothing much to say
 Searching to find what we lost along the way
 Could it be one day our feelings changed
 I hope we see it through
 'Cause I just can't stand the thought
 Of life without you

And now that dream is here beside me
Long the skies were overcast
But now the clouds have passed
You're here at last.

Chills run up and down my spine

The dream I dreamed was not denied me
Just one look and then I knew
That all I longed for long ago was you.

You talk to me and it goes over my head

A flower grows,

A candle glows.
I believe for everyone who goes astray,
Someone will come to show the way.
I believe,

I believe above the storm the smallest prayer,
Will still be heard.
I believe that someone in the great somewhere,
Hears every word.
Every time I hear a new born baby cry,
Or touch a leaf or see the sky.
Then I know why,
I believe.

Thinking of how you used to kiss
Courage

Love walked right in and brought my sunniest day
One magic moment and my heart seemed to know that love said hello
Though not a word was spoken.

One look and I had found a world completely new
When love walked in with you.

Love came down and set me free
I am yours
Lord I'm forever yours
Mountains high or valley low
I sing out and remind my soul
I am yours
I am forever yours

My love and I, we are boxing clever
She'll never crowd me out
Fall be free as old confetti
And paint the town, paint the town
When love breaks down
The things you do
To stop the truth from hurtin' you
When love breaks down
The lies we tell
They only serve to fool ourselves
When love breaks down
The things you do
To stop the truth from hurtin' you

Too many broken hearts have fallen in the river
Too many lonely souls have drifted out to sea
You lay your bets and then you pay the price
The things we do for love, the things we do for love

Communication is the problem to the answer
You've got her number and your hand is on the phone
The weather's turned and all the lines are down
The things we do for love, the things we do for love

Listen to the talk (listen to the talk)
Everywhere you go (everywhere you go)
What about the ring (what about the ring)
Is it there for me to throw it all away?
Is it true? My love

Nighttime sharpens, heightens each sensation
Darkness stirs and wakes imagination
Silently the senses abandon their defenses
Slowly, gently, night unfurls its splendor
Grasp it, sense it, tremulous and tender
Turn your face away from the garish light of day
Turn your face away from cold, unfeeling light
And listen to the music of the night.

To the beat of the rhythm of the night, dance until the morning light
Forget about the worries on your mind, you can leave them all behind
To the beat of the rhythm of the night
Oh, the rhythm of the night, oh yeah

Come join the fun, this ain't no time to be staying home
Ooh, there's too much going on
Tonight is gonna be a night like you've never known
We're gonna have a good time the whole night long

Let the beat control your body
Let the beat control your body
Let the beat control your body

My beat B.E.A.T.
It's my beat and it controls your body
It penetrates your brain
Without my beat you go insane
It's my beat and you can't break it
It's my beat and you can't fake it
It's my beat and you can't copy
Let my beat control your body

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

Don't think cause I'm iced out, I'mma cool off
Who else but me? And if you don't feel me
That mean you can't touch me, it's ugly, trust me
Get it right, dawg, we ain't ever left
We just moved in silence and repped to the death
It's official, I survive what I been through
Y'all got trauma, the saga continues

We ain't goin' nowhere, we ain't goin' nowhere
We can't be stopped now, cos it's Bad Boy for life
We ain't goin' nowhere, we ain't goin' nowhere
We can't be stopped now, cos it's Bad Boy for life

Stop! In the name of love
Before you break my heart
Baby, baby
I'm aware of where you go
Each time you leave my door
I watch you walk down the street
Knowing your other love you'll meet
But this time before you run to her
Leaving me alone and hurt
(Think it over) After I've been good to you?
(Think it over) After I've been sweet to you?

Well I'll be lyin' awake, baby late at night
And I call you up
But you're not alone
And I'd wait for you but it just ain't right
To keep my soul on fire with  your heart of stone

And I still see how it used to be
But somewhere something changed
And I don't know why

All our friends, you know they love to talk
They've been saying that we'll never make it
I just can't help the way I feel inside
You know it makes me crazy, but I just can't shake it

It would be a crime after all this time
if we had to say goodbye

Before you walk away, think it over
Haven't I Been Good To You?
Don't wanna  hear you say
that it's over
Haven't I Been Good To You?

Your baby doesn't love you any more
Golden days before they end
Whisper secrets to the wind
Your baby won't be near you any more

Tender nights before they fly
Send falling stars that seem to cry
Your baby doesn't want you any more
It's over

No I can't forget this evening
Or your face as you were leaving
But I guess that's just the way
The story goes
You always smile but in your eyes
Your sorrow shows
Yes it shows
No I can't forget tomorrow
When I think of all my sorrow
When I had you there
But then I let you go
And now it's only fair
That I should let you know
What you should know

I can't live
If living is without you
I can't live
I can't give anymore
I can't live
If living is without you
I can't give
I can't give anymore

You're my everything
Underneath the sun
You're my everything
Rolled up into one

You're my only dream
My only real reality
You're my idea
Of a perfect personality

You're my everything
Everything I need
You're the song I sing
And the book I read

You're a way beyond belief
And just to make it brief
You're my winter, summer, spring
My everything.

I don't love you anymore, like the way I did before
And since you've found someone new I think it's best
I don't try and walk the floor, I don't love you anymore
Trouble is I don't love you any less
I don't love you anymore for I've got no more love to give
You drained my heart of all it's love with every sweet caress
I keep saying o'er and o'er, I don't love you anymore
Trouble is I don't love you any less

I know your eyes in the morning sun
I feel you touch me in the pouring rain
And the moment that you wander far from me
I want to feel you in my arms again
And you come to me on a summer breeze
Keep me warm in your love, then you softly leave
And it's me you need to show

How deep is your love, how deep is your love
How deep is your love?
I really mean to learn
'Cause we're living in a world of fools
Breaking us down when they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

I hate that I let you down
And I feel so bad about it
I guess karma comes back around
'Cause now I'm the one that's hurting, yeah
And I hate that I made you think
That the trust we have is broken
So don't tell me you can't forgive me
'Cause nobody's perfect
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, nobody's perfect

Don't go changing, trying to please me
You never let me down before
I don't imagine you're too familiar
And I don't see you anymore
I would not leave you in times of trouble
We never could have come this far
I took the good times, I'll take the bad times
I'll take you just the way you are

Don't go trying some new fashion
Don't change the color of your hair
You always have my unspoken passion
Although I might not seem to care

I don't want clever conversation
I don't want to work that hard
I just want some, someone to talk to
I want you just the way you are.

Some days you're too set in your ways
And you forget to shut up, shut up and listen
And some days you just have to misplace all your mistakes
Somewhere that you won't miss them
So stop lying that you're fine
'Cos you're like me
And you can't give up

'Till an all time love
'Cos nothing else is good enough
I want an all time love to find me

I don't believe that it's a failing
I don't believe that it's a fault
'Cos if everything were plain sailing
Oh tell me what would there be left to exalt

Nothing seemed to matter any more,
Didn't care what I was headed for.
Time was standing still,
No one counted till
There came a knocking at the door.

Love walked right in and drove the shadows away ;
Love walked right in and brought my sunniest day.
One magic moment, and my heart seemed to know
That love said "Hello !",
Though no a word was spoken.

One look and I forgot the gloom of the past ;
One look and I had found my future at last.
One look and I had found a world completely new,
When love walked in... with you.

And in the streets, the children screamed
 The lovers cried and the poets dreamed
 But not a word was spoken
 The church bells all were broken

 And the three men I admire most
 The Father, Son and the Holy Ghost
 They caught the last train for the coast
 The day the music died

Don't like his baggy jeans but I'ma like what's underneath it
And no I ain't been to MIA

When he moves I watch him from behind
 He turns and laughter flickers in his eyes
 Intent and direct when he speaks, I watch his lips
 And when he drives I love to watch his hand
 White and smooth, almost feminine
 Almost American, I have to watch him

 Birds singin' in the sycamore trees

 While I'm alone and blue as can be
 Dream a little dream of me

Those days are done but I'm still glowing

An old cowboy went riding out one dark and windy day
Upon a ridge he rested as he went along his way
When all at once a mighty herd of red eyed cows he saw
A-plowing through the ragged sky and up the cloudy draw.

Their brands were still on fire and their hooves were made of steel
Their horns were black and shiny and their hot breath he could feel
A bolt of fear went through him as they thundered through the sky
For he saw the riders coming hard and he heard their mournful cry.

Yippie yi ooh
Yippie yi yay
Ghost riders in the sky.

Exchanging glances

We'd be sharing love

Something in my heart told me I must have you.

'Cause somewhere in the crowd there's you

I was sick and tired of everything
When I called you last night from Glasgow
All I do is eat and sleep and sing
Wishing every show was the last show (Wishing every show was the last show)

So imagine I was glad to hear you're coming (Glad to hear you're coming)
Suddenly I feel all right

And it's gonna be so different when I'm on the stage tonight.

So may I say to each of you most gratefully
As I throw each one of you a kiss

This is my kind of town, Chicago is

My kind of people too
People who smile at you

And each time I roam, Chicago is
Calling me home, Chicago is
Why I just grin like a clown
It's my kind of town.

Had me low and had me down
I viewed the morning with alarm
The British Museum had lost its charm.

How long, I wondered, could this thing last?
But the age of miracles hadn't passed,
For, suddenly, I saw you there
And through foggy London Town
The sun was shining everywhere.

I bet her momma never told her why
I'm gonna try for an uptown girl
She's been living in her white bread world
As long as anyone with hot blood can
And now she's looking for a downtown man
That's what I am

She wants from her time
And when she wakes up
And makes up her mind

When you're alone and life is making you lonely
You can always go
Downtown
When you've got worries, all the noise and the hurry
Seems to help, I know
Downtown

Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty
How can you lose?
The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares

So go
Downtown
Things will be great when you're
Downtown
No finer place for sure
Downtown
Everything's waiting for you.

at your uptown, east side place
we'd make love for hours on a bed of silk and lace
and she would get up early
and come home late at night
she'd have important busainess

tired on some evenings

I'm an uptown, uptempo woman

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 are 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.

Oooh yeah, saw the film with Madonna singing that.

Just stop your crying
It's a sign of the times
Welcome to the final show
Hope you're wearing your best clothes
You can't bribe the door on your way to the sky
You look pretty good down here
But you ain't really good
If we never learn, we been here before
Why are we always stuck and running from
The bullets?

We never learn, we been here before

I'm quick on the trigger with targets not much bigger
Than a pin point, I'm number one.
But my score with a feller is lower than a cellar-
Oh you can't get a man with a gun.

When I'm with a pistol
I sparkle like a crystal,
Yes, I shine like the morning sun.
But I lose all my luster
When with a Bronco Buster.
Oh you can't get a man with a gun.
With a gun, with a gun,
No, you can't get a man with a gun.

I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy
I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy
All around in my home town
They're trying to track me down
They say they want to bring me in guilty
For the killing of a deputy
For the life of a deputy, but I say
I shot the sheriff, but I swear it was in self-defense
I shot the sheriff, and they say it is a capital offense

Chicago, Chicago that toddling town
Chicago, Chicago I will show you around
Bet your bottom dollar you lose the blues in Chicago, Chicago
The town that Billy Sunday couldn't shut down

On State Street, that great street, I just want to say
They do things they don't do on Broadway
They have the time, the time of their life
I saw a man, he danced with his wife
In Chicago, Chicago my home town.

Who's peekin' out from under a stairway
Calling a name that's lighter than air
Who's bending down to give me a rainbow
Everyone knows it's Windy
Who's tripping down the streets of the city
Smilin' at everybody she sees
Who's reachin' out to capture a moment
Everyone knows it's Windy

I just blew in from the windy city
The windy city is mighty pretty
But they ain't got what we got
I'm tellin' ya, boys
We got more life in Deadwood City
Than in all of Illinois

You should-a seen me a-windo' shoppin'
A-windo' shoppin' with eyes a-poppin'
At the sights that you see there, yes sirree
Press a bell and a moment later
Up you go in an elevator
Just as fast as a polecat a-climbin' a tree.

You had a temper like my jealousy
Too hot, too greedy

When I needed to possess you?

Bad dreams in the night

Leave behind my wuthering, wuthering

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 out of 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

I was making my way through the wasteland
 The road into town passes through
 I was changing the radio stations
 With my mind on you
 Oh your friends call you "Lily Paloma"
 But that's not the way that you are
 It's too much of a gentle misnomer
 For a shooting star

 But you and me baby
 I saw you there
 Straight away I knew
 There's really no hiding
 I'll tell you right now
 What we're gonna do
 We'll go collecting the days
 Putting the moments away
 You're on my mind like a
 Song on the Radio

I bet you had a couple long nights sleeping alone
I bet even on a short drive if our song came on
You'd pull over on the shoulder and cry, thinking 'bout how we used to be
Girl, I bet you had a hard time getting over me
Ooh, that might be true
But if you think getting over me was hard, try getting over you

Once in your life you find her
Someone that turns your heart around
And next thing you know you're closing down the town
Wake up and it's still with you
Even though you left her way across town
Wondering to yourself, "Hey, what've I found?"

When you get caught between the Moon and New York City
I know it's crazy, but it's true
If you get caught between the Moon and New York City
The best that you can do
The best that you can do is fall in love

In the event of something happening to me,
There is something I would like you all to see.
It's just a photograph of someone that I knew.

Have you seen my wife, Mr. Jones?
Do you know what it's like on the outside?
Don't go talking too loud, you'll cause a landslide, Mr. Jones.

I keep straining my ears to hear a sound.
Maybe someone is digging underground,
Or have they given up and all gone home to bed,
Thinking those who once existed must be dead.

Was it somtehing I've said or done,
That made him pack his bags up and run?
Could it be another he's found?
It's breaking up the happy home.

A more humane Mikado never
Did in Japan exist
To nobody second

A true philanthropist

To make, to some extent
Each evil liver
A running river
Of harmless merriment.

This song never fails to reduce me to tears. This and 'In my life' by Beatles:

There are places I remember
 All my life though some have changed
 Some forever not for better
 Some have gone and some remain
 All these places have their moments
 With lovers and friends I still can recall
 Some are dead and some are living
 In my life I've loved them all


Sorry that's a diversion from the Mikado above - feel free to trip off down the G & S path like three little maids  ;)

I feel the same way about those songs Trent.  How about this?


I've watched you go through changes
That no man should face alone
Take to heel or tame the horse
The choice is still your own
But arm yourself against the pain
A wounded bird can give
And in the end remember
It's with you you have to live
And in the end remember
It's with you you have to live
Stand your ground I think you've got
The guts it takes to win
But you must learn to turn the keys
Before she'll let you in
And understand the problems of the girl you want
So near or you'll wear the coat of questions `til the
Answer hat is here
You'll wear the coat of questions `til the
Answer hat is here
Serenade your angel with a love song from your eyes
Grow a little taller even though your age defies
Feel a little smaller
And in stature you will rise
A hobo or a poet must kill dragons for a bride;
And humble pie is always hard to swallow
With your pride

Sweet comic valentine
You make me smile with my heart
Your looks are laughable
Unphotographable
Yet you're my favourite work of art

Is your figure less than greek
Is your mouth a little weak
When you open it to speak
Are you smart?

But don't change a hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little valentine stay
Each day is valentines day.

You made me happy sometimes, you made me glad
But there were times, Dear, you made me feel so bad
You made me sigh for, I didn't want to tell you
I didn't want to tell you

a song the heavens made and angels played
when first we kissed
we touched and I became divine my love
because of you the stars that shine my love

I'm standing here with my arms a mile wide
I'm hoping and praying for you
Listen to me and enlighten me
I hope that you need me too, 'cause

Ooh, ooh Anytime that you want me
Ooh, ooh Anytime that you need me

The moment I wake up
Before I put on my makeup
I say a little pray for you
While combing my hair now
And wondering what dress to wear now
I say a little prayer for you

Forever and ever, you'll stay in my heart
And I will love you
Forever and ever, we never will part
Oh, how I love you
Together, forever, that's how it must be
To live without you
Would only mean heartbreak for me

Feel how the wind blows, December despair
 Bring me a ribbon to tie up my hair
 I'll be your bride, go where you go
 All of my life, you'll be my beau


 Kiss me and I might
 Put on the white dress
 If you'll take me dancing tonight
 The night's in your face, sky's in your eyes
 The day's in my arms when you're by my side
 Whenever you're weary I'll sing you a song
 Whenever you're lonely I'll show you you're wrong

You get me out of my seat, it's like I've been in bed for a week
I've been slippin' n' slidin' all over the place, and nobody cares
And I'm such a disgrace
You get me out of my mood, that's something only you can do,
Cause I feel like I'm home when I'm in your arms
And that's why I need you to...

Cheer Me Up,
Come on dance with me,
And you take my hand.
Cheer Me Up
Even if we're the only ones dancing
Cheer Me Up
Please won't you cheer me up
Even if were the only ones dancing

We've just been introduced,
I do not know you well,
But when the music started
Something drew me to your side.
So many men and girls,
Are in each others arms-
It made me think we might be
Similarly occupied.

Shall we dance?
On a bright cloud of music shall we fly?
Shall we dance?
Shall we then say "Goodnight and mean "Goodbye"?
Or perchance,
When the last little star has left the sky,
Shall we still be together
With are arms around each other
And shall you be my new romance?
On the clear understanding
That this kind of thing can happen,
Shall we dance?
Shall we dance? Shall we Dance?

've never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight
I've never seen you shine so bright
I've never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance
They're looking for a little romance, given half a chance
And I have never seen that dress you're wearing
Or the highlights in your hair that catch your eyes
I have been blind
The lady in red is dancing with me, cheek to cheek
There's nobody here, it's just you and me
It's where I want to be
But I hardly know this beauty by my side
I'll never forget the way you look tonight

Tonight, tonight
It all began tonight
I saw you and the world went away

Tonight, tonight
There's only you tonight
What you are, what you do, what you say

Today, all day I had the feeling
A miracle would happen
I know now I was right

For here you are
And what was just a world is a star
Tonight

Today is gonna be the day
That they're gonna throw it back to you
By now you should've somehow
Realized what you gotta do
I don't believe that anybody
Feels the way I do, about you now
Backbeat, the word was on the street
That the fire in your heart is out
I'm sure you've heard it all before
But you never really had a doubt
I don't believe that anybody
Feels the way I do about you now
And all the roads we have to walk are winding
And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
There are many things that I
Would like to say to you but I don't know how
Because maybe, you're gonna be the one that saves me
And after all, you're my wonderwall

I will follow Him
Follow Him where ever he may go
And near Him I always will be
For nothing can keep me away
He is my destiny.

I will follow Him
Ever since he touched my heart, I knew
There isn't an ocean too deep
A mountain so high it can keep
Keep me away, away from his love.

You're all I need to get by.
Like the sweet morning dew, I took one look at you,
And it was plain to see,
You were my destiny.
With my arms open wide,
I threw away my pride
I'll sacrifice for you
Dedicate my life for you

I will go where you lead
Always there in time of need
And when I lose my will
You'll be there to push me up the hill

Sometimes in our lives we all have pain
We all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know that there's always tomorrow
Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

Strands of light upon a bedroom floor
Change the night through an open door
I'm awake but this not my home
For the first time I'm not alone

Reaching out, I touch another skin
Breathing out as he is breathing in
Deep inside I feel my soul aflame
Can my life ever be the same?

I feel the trembling tingle of a sleepless night,
 Creep through my fingers and the moon is bright.
 Beams of blue come flickering through my windowpane,
 Like Gypsy moths that dance around a candle flame.

And I wonder if you know, that I never understood, that
 Although you said you'd go, until you did, I never thought you would.

I absolutely love that song, 'Amoureuse' - Veronique Sanson - later Kiki Dee.

Silhouettes of a perfect frame
Shadows of your smile will always remain (always remain)
Beginners luck soon fades away, oh baby
We go on, I'll always say
Long as I live, you will be my
(My first love) oh baby, you and only you
(Long as I live) Long as I live
(My first love) you will be my first love
And I'd choose you again

One day we walked along the sand
 One day in early spring
 You held a piper in your hand
 To mend its broken wing
 Now I'll remember many a day
 And many a lonely mile
 The echo of a piper's song
 The shadow of a smile

The shadow of your smile
 When you are gone
 Will color all my dreams
 And light the dawn
 Look into my eyes
 My love and see
 All the lovely things
 You are to me

Moon river, wider than a mile
I'm crossing you in style someday
You dream maker
You heart breaker
Where ever you're going I'm going your way

Two drifters off to see the world
There's such a lot of world to see
We're after the same rainbow's end
Waiting round the bend
My huckleberry friend
Moon river and me.

Somewhere over the rainbow way up high
 There's a land that I heard of once in a lullaby
 Somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue
 And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true

Someday I'll wish upon a star
 And wake up where the clouds are far
 Behind me
 Where troubles melt like lemon drops
 Away above the chimney tops
 That's where you'll find me

Rows and floes of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere
I've looked at clouds that way

But now they only block the sun
They rain and snow on everyone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way

I've looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It's cloud illusions I recall
I really don't know clouds at all

Snow
It won't be long before we'll all be there with snow
Snow
I want to wash my hands, my face and hair with snow
Snow
I long to clear a path and lift a spade of snow
Snow
Oh, to see a great big man entirely made of snow
Where it's snowing
All winter through
That's where I want to be.

Snowball throwing
That's what I'll do
How I'm longing to ski
Through the snow-oh-oh-oh-oh.

Way up north to Alaska, way up north to Alaska
North to Alaska, go north, the rush is on
North to Alaska, go north, the rush is on

Big Sam left Seattle in the year of '92
With George Pratt his partner, and brother Billy too
They crossed the Yukon River, and found a bonanza gold
Below that old white mountain, just a little southeast of Nome
Sam crossed the majestic mountains to the valleys far below
He talked to his team of huskies as they mushed on through the snow
With the Northern Lights a runnin' wild in the Land of the Midnight Sun
Yes Sam McCord was a mighty man in the year of nineteen-one

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

Right back where I started from
Where bowers are flowers bloom in the spring
Each morning at dawning

A sun kissed miss said "Don't be late!"

Open up that Golden Gate!

There she stood in the doorway;
I heard the mission bell
And I was thinking to myself
'This could be heaven or this could be Hell'
Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor,
I thought I heard them say
Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place (such a lovely place)
Such a lovely face.
Plenty of room at the Hotel California

Are you ready for a brand new beat
Summer's here and the time is right
For dancing in the streets
They're dancing in chicago
Down in new orleans
In new york city.

They'll be swinging, swaying, records playing,
Dancing in the street, oh.

Bet your bottom dollar, you'll lose the blues in Chicago
Chicago, the town that Billy Sunday couldn't shut down

On State Street, that great street, I just want to say
They do things that they don't do on Broadway

Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head
But at night it's a different world
Go out and find a girl
Come-on come-on and dance all night
Despite the heat it'll be alright
And babe, don't you know it's a pity
That the days can't be like the nights
In the summer, in the city
In the summer, in the city
Cool town, evening in the city
Dressing so fine and looking so pretty
Cool cat, looking for a kitty
Gonna look in every corner of the city
Till I'm wheezing like a bus stop
Running up the stairs, gonna meet you on the rooftop

Waiting for the sunrise, soul dancing in the dark
 Summer night city
 Walking in the moonlight, love-making in the park
 Summer night city

In the sun I feel like sleeping
 I can't take it for too long

 Up my spine and growing strong
 I know what's waiting there for me
 Tonight I'm loose and fancy-free, aa-ahhh

A deep shade of blue is always there
The sun ain't gonna shine anymore
The moon ain't gonna rise in the sky
The tears are always clouding your eyes
When you're without love, baby
Emptiness is the place you're in
There's nothing to lose but no more to win

Before you go make this moment sweet again
We won't say "good night" until the last minute
I'll hold out my hand and my heart will be in it

We come and go like a ripple on a stream
So love me tonight; tomorrow was made for some
Tomorrow may never come for all we know.

Some things in life are bad
They can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse
When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best

And always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the light side of life

If life seems jolly rotten
There's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing
When you're feeling in the dumps
Don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle, that's the thing.

When in the midst of sorrow
You can' t see up when looking down

A brighter day tomorrow will bring
You hear the voice of reason
Telling you this can't never be done
No matter how hard reality seems
Just hold on to your dreams
Don't give up and don't give in
Although it seems you never win
You will always pass the test

You can win as long as you keep your head to the sky

Don't disguise
The way you wanna love tonight
Oh my my, hook you with a brand new high
Don't be shy, I just wanna live tonight
Live a little F.U.N. fun

Love is in the air everywhere I look around
Love is in the air every sight and every sound
And I don't know if I'm being foolish
Don't know if I'm being wise
But it's something that I must believe in
And it's there when I look in your eyes.

Love is in the air, in the whisper of the tree
Love is in the air in the thunder of the sea
And I don't know if I'm just dreaming
Don't know if I feel safe
But it's something that I must believe in
And it's there when you call out my name

Well I wake up in the morning
Tell me baby what do you see?
I see my true love and she walks up and she kisses me
I say "Cor baby that's really free"

I go walking down to your house
Tell me baby is it good for me?
Your Ma and Pa, they just wanna kick me
I say "Cor baby that's really free"
Really free really free
Really really really really free
Kick me

I get no kick from champagne,
Mere alcohol,
Doesn't thrill me at all,
So tell me, why should it be true,
That I get a kick out of you.

Some get a kick from cocaine,
I'm sure that if,
I took even one sniff,
It would bore me terrifically, too,
Yet I get a kick out of you.

Oh every time it rains
It rains pennies from heaven
Don't you know each cloud contains
Pennies from heaven
You'll find your fortune
Falling all over town
Be sure that your umbrella is upside down
Trade them for a package of sunshine and flowers
It you want the things you love
You must have showers
So when you hear it thunder
Don't run under a tree
There will be pennies from heaven
For you and me.

The French are glad to die for love
They delight in fighting duels
But I prefer a man who lives
And gives expensive jewels
A kiss on the hand may be quite continental
But diamonds are a girl's best friend

A kiss may be grand but it won't pay the rental
On your humble flat, or help you at the automat
Men grow cold as girls grow old
And we all lose our charms in the end
But square-cut or pear-shaped
These rocks don't lose their shape
Diamonds are a girl's best friend.

Onward, the sailors cry.
Carry the lad that's born to be king
Over the sea to Skye.

Loud the winds howl, loud the waves roar,
Thunderclaps rend the air,
Baffled our foes stand by the shore,
Follow they will not dare.

Somewhere beyond the sea
Somewhere waiting for me
My lover stands on golden sands
And watches the ships that go sailin'

If I could fly like birds on high
Then straight to her arms

It was just one of those things
Just one of those crazy flings
One of those bells that now and then rings
Just one of those things

It was just one of those nights
Just one of those fabulous flights
A trip to the moon on gossamer wings
Just one of those things

If we'd thought a bit before the end of it
When we started painting the town
We'd have been aware that our love affair
Was too hot not to cool down

So good-bye, dear, and amen
Here's hoping we meet now and then
It was great fun
But it was just one of those things.

Our love was just a flash in the pan
Blowing away with the first morning rain
But those flames can kill a man
And now the rain can wash my pain

Now even without a witness to see
Even if we sink into oblivion sea
There's a story about you and me
There's a story about you and me

And I will see you around this town sometimes
And we will shake hands just like a friend and that's all right

Don't tell me not to live
Just sit and putter
Life's candy and the sun's
A ball of butter
Don't bring around a cloud
To rain on my parade
Don't tell me not to fly
I've simply got to

If someone takes a spill
It's me and not you
Who told you you're allowed
To rain on my parade!
I'll march my band out
I'll beat my drum

There's an old superstition 'way down south
Everybody believes that trouble won't stay
If you shake it away.

When they hold a revival way down south
Everybody with care and trouble that day
Tries to shake it away.

Shaking the blues away, unhappy news away
If you are blue, it's easy to
Shake off your cares and troubles.

Telling the blues to go, they may refuse to go
But as a rule, they'll go if you'll
Shake them away.

The best things happen while you're dancing
Things you would not do at home
Come naturally on the floor
For dancing soon becomes romancing
When you hold a girl in your arms
That you've never held before
Even guys with two left feet
Come out alright if the girl is sweet
If by chance their cheeks should meet while dancing
Proving that the best things happen while you dance.

You must have been insane to think I'd tell you the truth
How could you believe me when I said we'd marry
When you know I'd rather hang than have a wife
I know I said I'd make you mine

on the mean altar of my heart!

There let it for thy glory burn
with inextinguishable blaze,
and trembling to its source return
in humble prayer and fervent praise.

Jesus, confirm my heart's desire
to work, and speak, and think for thee;
still let me guard the holy fire,

Ready for all thy perfect will,

till death thy endless mercies seal,

Is this a dagger I see before me?
The hilt turned to me?
If you are not a dream, let me grasp you.
You fly from me, and yet I can see you!
You run ahead of me
along the unclear path which my mind
intended to follow!
Horrid sight!
The blade is streaked with blood!
But now there’s nothing there.
Only my bloody imagination gives it shape
and presents a dream to my eyes as a reality.
On one half of the world
nature now is dead. Now the murderer
creeps like a phantom through the shadows.
Now the witches consummate their secrets.
Motionless earth!
Stay hushed at my steps.

Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
Will hum about mine ears, and sometime voices
That, if I then had waked after long sleep,
Will make me sleep again. And then, in dreaming,
The clouds methought would open and show riches
Ready to drop upon me, that when I waked
I cried to dream again.

"I'll turn you on sonny to something strong
Play the song with the funky break"

Till you have drench'd our steeples, drown'd the cocks!
You sulphurous and thought-executing fires,
Vaunt-couriers to oak-cleaving thunderbolts,
Singe my white head! And thou, all-shaking thunder,
Smite flat the thick rotundity o' the world!
Crack nature's moulds, an germens spill at once,
That make ingrateful man!

house is better than this rain-water out o' door.
Good nuncle, in, and ask thy daughters' blessing:

Rumble thy bellyful! Spit, fire! spout, rain!
Nor rain, wind, thunder, fire, are my daughters:
I tax not you, you elements, with unkindness;
I never gave you kingdom, call'd you children,
You owe me no subscription: then let fall
Your horrible pleasure: here I stand, your slave,
A poor, infirm, weak, and despised old man:
But yet I call you servile ministers,
That have with two pernicious daughters join'd
Your high engender'd battles 'gainst a head
So old and white as this. O! O! 'tis foul!

The Sun Is Burning
The sun is burning in the sky,
Strands of cloud are softly drifting by,


In the park the dreamy bees
Are droning in the flowers among the trees,
And the sun burns in the sky.

Now the sun is sinking low,
Children playing know its time to go,
And the couples in the park
Are holding hands and waiting for the dark,
And the sun is sinking low.

Now the sun is in the West,
Little kids lie down to take their rest,
High above a spot appears,
A little blossom blooms and then draws near,
And the sun is in the West.

Now the sun has come to Earth
Shrouded in a mushroom cloud of death,
Death comes in a blinding flash
Of hellish heat and leaves a smear of ash,
And the sun has come to Earth.

Now the sun has disappeared,
All is darkness, anger, pain and fear,
Twisted, sightless wrecks of men
Go crawling on their knees and cry in pain,
And the sun has disappeared.

Sing, sing, sing, sing
Everybody start to sing
Ooh ooh, waah ooh
Now you're singin' with a swing

Sing, sing, sing, sing

Ooh ooh, waah ooh

Everybody goes to town
But here's something you should know
Ha ha baby, ho ho ho

I have a song to sing, O
(Sing me your song, O)
It is sung to the moon by a love-lorn loon
Who fled from the mocking throng-o

It's the song of a merry man moping mum
Whose soul was sad and his glance was glum
Who sipped no sup and who craved no crumb
As he sighed for the love of a lady

Hey-di, hey-di, misery me, lack-a-day-de
He sipped no sup and he craved no crumb
As he sighed for the love of a lady

I'll sing you twelve, O
Green grow the rushes, O
What are your twelve, O?
Twelve for the twelve apostles,
Eleven for the eleven who went to heaven, and
Ten for the Ten Commandments,
Nine for the nine bright shiners,
Eight for the April rainers,
Seven for the seven stars in the sky, and
Six for the six proud walkers,
Five for the symbols at your door, and
Four for the gospel-makers,
Three, three arrivals!
Two, two lily-white boys
Clothed all in green, O
One is one, and all alone,
And ever more shall be so.

Done is a battle on the dragon black,
Our champion Christ confoundit has his force;
The yetis of hell are broken with a crack,
The sign triumphal raisit is of the cross,
The devillis trymmillis with hiddous voce,
The saulis are borrowit and to the bliss can go,
Christ with his bloud our ransonis dois indoce:
Surrexit Dominus de sepulchro.

Dungan is the deidly dragon Lucifer,
The cruewall serpent with the mortal stang;
The auld kene tiger, with his teith on char,
Whilk in a wait has lyen for us so lang,
Thinking to grip us in his clawis strang;
The merciful Lord wald nocht that it were so,
He made him for to failye of that fang.
Surrexit Dominus de sepulchro.

He for our saik that sufferit to be slane,
And lyk a lamb in sacrifice was dicht,
Is lyk a lion risen up agane,
And as a gyane raxit him on hicht;
Sprungen is Aurora radious and bricht,
On loft is gone the glorious Apollo,
The blissful day departit fro the nicht:
Surrexit Dominus de sepulchro.

The grit victour again is rissen on hicht,
That for our querrell to the deth was woundit;
The sun that wox all pale now shynis bricht,
And, derkness clearit, our faith is now refoundit;
The knell of mercy fra the heaven is soundit,
The Christin are deliverit of their wo,
The Jowis and their errour are confoundit:
Surrexit Dominus de sepulchro.

The fo is chasit, the battle is done ceis,
The presone broken, the jevellouris fleit and flemit;
The weir is gon, confermit is the peis,
The fetteris lowsit and the dungeon temit,
The ransoun made, the prisoneris redeemit;
The field is won, owrecomen is the fo,
Dispuilit of the treasure that he yemit:
Surrexit Dominus de sepulchro.

This bit makes me feel uncomfortable :- The Jowis and their errour are confoundit.

So something different (in ferra penny) -

He moves a mighty turban on the timeless houri’s knees,
His turban that is woven of the sunset and the seas.
He shakes the peacock gardens as he rises from his ease,
And he strides among the tree-tops and is taller than the trees,
And his voice through all the garden is a thunder sent to bring
Black Azrael and Ariel and Ammon on the wing.
Giants and the Genii,
Multiplex of wing and eye,
Whose strong obedience broke the sky
When Solomon was king.

They rush in red and purple from the red clouds of the morn,
From temples where the yellow gods shut up their eyes in scorn;
They rise in green robes roaring from the green hells of the sea
Where fallen skies and evil hues and eyeless creatures be;
On them the sea-valves cluster and the grey sea-forests curl,
Splashed with a splendid sickness, the sickness of the pearl;
They swell in sapphire smoke out of the blue cracks of the ground,—
They gather and they wonder and give worship to Mahound.
And he saith, “Break up the mountains where the hermit-folk can hide,
And sift the red and silver sands lest bone of saint abide,
And chase the Giaours flying night and day, not giving rest,
For that which was our trouble comes again out of the west.
We have set the seal of Solomon on all things under sun,
Of knowledge and of sorrow and endurance of things done,
But a noise is in the mountains, in the mountains, and I know
The voice that shook our palaces—four hundred years ago:
It is he that saith not ‘Kismet’; it is he that knows not Fate ;
It is Richard, it is Raymond, it is Godfrey in the gate!
It is he whose loss is laughter when he counts the wager worth,
Put down your feet upon him, that our peace be on the earth.”
For he heard drums groaning and he heard guns jar,
(Don John of Austria is going to the war.)
Sudden and still—hurrah!
Bolt from Iberia!
Don John of Austria

Surrounded by four walls that ain't so pretty

To keep him strong moving in the right direction
Living just enough, just enough for the cityee ha!

Back through the years
I go wonderin' once again
Back to the seasons of my youth
I recall a box of rags that someone gave us
And how my momma put the rags to use
There were rags of many colors
Every piece was small
And I didn't have a coat
And it was way down in the fall
Momma sewed the rags together
Sewin' every piece with love
She made my coat of many colors
That I was so proud of
As she sewed, she told a story
From the bible, she had read
About a coat of many colors
Joseph wore and then she said
Perhaps this coat will bring you
Good luck and happiness
And I just couldn't wait to wear it
And momma blessed it with a kiss

Don't be unhappy, can't remember
When I last saw you laughing

If this world makes you crazy
And you've taken all you can bear
You call me up
Because you know I'll be there

And I'll see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that's why I love you
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful,
Like a rainbow

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Now that the light is fading
Silver and purple at twilight
Scenes of the day remain with us
Bright as the fire is burning bright
Blue as the sky above the lake
And blue the water flowing
White birch drooping on the shore
Her leaves of emerald glowing
The night is robed in spangled black
And soon we shall be sleeping
Beyond the moon that rides on high
The radiant dawn is creeping, creeping
Down through the leaves, the sunlight
Came in shafts of gold
Now by the dying embers
We watch the day grow old

Heavenly shades of night are falling
 It's twilight time
 Out of the mist your voice is calling
 'Tis twilight time

When purple colored curtains
 Mark the end of the day
 I hear you my dear at twilight time

Deepening shadows gather splendor
 As day is done
 Fingers of night will soon surrender
 The setting sun

I count the moments darling
 Till you're here with me
 Together at last at twilight time

You're part of a life I've never had

You're showing your color

Have you had another, baby, standing in the shadow?
I'm glad I opened your eyes
The have-nots would have tried to freeze you in ice
Have you seen your brother, baby, standing in the shadow?
Have you had another baby, standing in the shadow?
Well I was just passing the time
I'm all alone, won't you give all your sympathy to mine?
Tell me a story about how you adore me
Live through the shadow, see through the shadow,
Live through the shadow, tear at the shadow
Hate in the shadow, love in the shadow life
Have you seen your lover, baby, standing in the shadow?

Tell me a story, then I'll go to bed

Sippers there by the chair, not a worry, not a care

Little lovely dream

Sweet sweet shut your eyes
The wild fireflies
The wild fireflies dancing
Through the fairy name

Straight from the poppy bowl
It was for you I stole
And just for you I stole
A still little lovely dream

Hush demon baby
Your time will soon come
Your sleep shall be broken
By trumpet tantrum

When the music swells
I'm touching you hand
It tells that you're standing near and

Heaven opens it's portals to me

That a song such as ours came to be?
But I always knew
I would live life through
With a song in my heart for you.

Not another lullaby.  Can't you sleep?  :) See #1665
Anyway, here goes.....

Come on along and listen to
The lullaby of Broadway.
The hip hooray and bally hoo,
The lullaby of Broadway.
The rumble of the subway train,
The rattle of the taxis.
The daffy-dills who entertain
At Angelo's and Maxie's.

When a Broadway baby says "Good night,"
It's early in the morning.
Manhattan babies don't sleep tight until the dawn:
Good night, baby,
Good night, milkman's on his way.
Sleep tight, baby,
Sleep tight, let's call it a day,
Listen to the lullaby of old Broadway.

I don't like to sleep alone
Stay with me
Don't go
Talk with me for just a while
So much of you to get to know
Reaching out touching you
Leaving all the worries behind
Loving you
My mouth on yours and yours on mine
Marry me
Let me live with you
Nothing's wrong and love is right
Like a man says in his song
Help me make it through the night
Loneliness can get you down
When you get to thinking no one cares
Lean on me
And I'll lean on you
Together we will see it through

Take the ribbon from your hair, Shake it loose and let it fall,
Laying soft upon my skin. Like the shadows on the wall.
Come and lay down by my side till the early morning light
All I'm taking is your time. Help me make it through the night.

I don't care what's right or wrong, I don't try to understand.
Let the devil take tomorrow. Lord, tonight I need a friend.
Yesterday is dead and gone and tomorrow's out of sight.
And it's sad to be alone. Help me make it through the night.

Once I used to join in, every boy and girl was my friend

So whatever you've got to do
You've got a lovely day to do it in, that's true
And I hope whatever you've got to do
Is something that can be done by two
For I'd really like to stay

It's a lovely day today
And whatever you've got to do
I'd be so happy to be doing it with you
But if you've got something that must be done
And it can only be done by one

One of my mum's favourites, she was a great Springfield fan though there are several other versions. Sounds good in French.

If you go away on this summer day
Then you might as well take the sun away
All the birds that flew in the summer sky
When our love was new and our hearts were high
When the day was young and the night was long
And the moon stood still for the night bird's song
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away
But if you stay, I'll make you a day
Like no day has been or will be again
We'll sail on the sun, we'll ride on the rain
We'll talk to the trees and worship the wind
Then if you go, I'll understand
Leave me just enough love to hold in my hand

 The last day of June
 And the sun was a demon
 The clouds were afraid
 One-ten in the shade
 And the pavement was steaming

I told Billy Ray

 I needed time for some thinking
 I was just walking by
 When I looked in her eye
 And I swore, it was winking

They don't turn their heads as they see me ride by

A flower grows,
I believe that somewhere in the darkest night
A candle glows.
I believe for everyone who goes astray
Someone will come to show the way.
I believe,
Oh, I believe.
I believe above the storm
The smallest prayer, will still be heard.
I believe that someone in that great somewhere
Hears every word
Every time I hear a newborn baby cry,
Or touch a leaf
Or see the sky,
Then I know why I believe.

Wide open welcoming hearts
Against the pink sky blackberry tangles
A circle of friendship begin under the stars
And this is life

Yesterday a child came out to wonder
 Caught a dragonfly inside a jar
 Fearful when the sky was full of thunder
 And tearful at the falling of a star
 Then the child moved ten times round the seasons
 Skated over ten clear frozen streams
 Words like, when you're older, must appease him
 And promises of someday make his dreams
 And the seasons they go round and round
 And the painted ponies go up and dawn
 We're captive on the carousel of time
 We can't return we con only look behind
 From where we came
 And go round and round and round
 In the circle game.

Spaced out, far out, get another car out
Dodgem Dude is dancing on the desert of the Ring
And he drives his car with style
While he smiles at all the wiles
The cars go round and round and then he hits them

Smash them, crash them, get your chips and cash them
Dodgem Dude don't dare, don't dare to understand
And the music growls and moans
For he knows he can't go home
So he's grinning as the sparks fly when he hits them

Spill them, kill them, have your kicks and thrill them
Race them, chase them, turn the car and face them
Dodgem Dude is dancing on the desert of his brains

I guess this means that:

the carnival is over,
 we may never meet again.

Like a drum my heart was beating,
 and your kiss was sweet as wine.
 But the joys of love are fleeting,
 for Pierrot and Columbine.

Leave me bleeding on the bed
See you right back here tomorrow for the next round
Keep this scene inside your head
As the bruises turn to yellow
The swelling goes down

And if you're ever around
In the city or the suburbs of this town
Be sure to come around
I'll be wallowing in sorrow
And wearing a frown
Like Pierrot the Clown

Same old boring Sunday morning
 Old man's out washing the car
 Mum's in the kitchen, cooking Sunday dinner
 Her best meal moaning while it lasts
 Johnny's upstairs in his bedroom
 Sitting in the dark
 Annoying the neighbors
 With his punk rock electric guitar
 This is the sound
 This is the sound of the suburbs
 This is the sound
 This is the sound of the suburbs

Maybe I'm just waiting for the right time
To come along
Birds don't sing because they have answers
They sing because they have songs
Baby bay how could you forget?
Have not forgotten just not finished yet
So what have we got?
We got a lot of nothing finished yet
How could I forget
We are eiffel tower high
Shaky like a hollywood hillside
Norwegian winter long
Birds flying across the ocean
The dirty war is in our song
As true as any slip of your tongue
Some put on wetsuits others a wedding ring
No need to say anythingjust feel better
I'll be waiting I'm still wainting
Baby bay how could you forget?
Have not forgotten just not finished yet
And we know...
We got a lot of nothing finished yet

She told me she worked
In the morning and started to laugh
I told her I didn't
And crawled off to sleep in the bath

And when I awoke I was alone
This bird had flown
So I lit a fire
Isn't it good Norwegian wood?

No I don't belong to her
I don't belong to any body
She's my Christ-forsaken angel
But she don't hear me cry
She's a lone-hearted mystic
And she can't carry on
When I'm there, she's all right
But she's not when I'm gone

Heaven knows that the answer
She don't calling no one
She's the way, forsaken beauty
For she's mine, for the one
And I lost her, hesitation
By temptation as it runs
But she don't holler me
But I'm not there, I'm gone

Oh every time it rains
It rains pennies from heaven
Don't you know each cloud contains
Pennies from heaven
You'll find your fortune
Fallin' all over town
Be sure that your umbrella is upside down
Trade them for a package of sunshine and flowers
It you want the things you love
You must have showers
So when you hear it thunder
Don't run under a tree
There'll be pennies from heaven
For you and me

The sweet sweet memories you gave-a me
You can't beat the memories you gave-a me
Take one fresh and tender kiss
Add one stolen night of bliss
One girl, one boy some grief, some joy
Memories are made of this
Don't forget a small moon beam
Fold in lightly with a dream
Your lips and mine, two sips of wine
Memories are made of this.

Take me away from the city and lead me to where I can be on my own,
I wanted to see it, and now that I have, I want just to be left alone,
I'll always remember your kind words, and I'll still remember your name,
But I've seen you changing and turning, and I know that things won't be the same.
I remember that summer in Dublin, and the liffey as it stank like hell,
And the young people walking on Grafton street, and everyone looking so well,
I was singing a song I heard somewhere, called "Rock 'n' roll never forgets",
When my hummin' was smothered by a 46a and the scream of a low flying jet.
So I jumped on a bus to dun laoire, stoppin' off to pick up my guitar,
And a drunk on the bus told me how to get rich.

In Dublin's fair city
where the girls are so pretty
I once met a girl named sweet Molly Malone
and she wheeled her wheel barrow
through the streets broad and narrow
singing cockles and mussels alive alive oh

She was a fish monger
and sure was no wonder
so were her mother and father before
and they wheeled their wheel barrow
through the streets broad and narrow
singing cockles and mussels alive alive oh

Oh, Mary, this London's a wonderful sight
 With people here working by day and by night
 They don't sow potatoes nor barley nor wheat
 But there's gangs of them diggin' for gold in the street
 At least when I asked them, that's what I was told
 So I just took a hand at this diggin' for gold
 But for all that I've found there, I might as well be
 In the place where the dark Mourne sweeps down to the sea

We left our goods behind overnight
They told us there was a place to find
We were all wrapped up in winter coats
Searching gold in the midnight cold
We traveled arm in arm, at the same pace
Keeping each other warm in the rising storm

Searching gold
Where's the gold
That we'll share
As we share the road?
Tree trunks had fallen down on our way
Rocks of the ice age that would not stir
We lifted all that troubled our haste
One spell, one voice for one single aim
Searching gold, will we find it?
Where's the gold
That we'll share
As we share the road?

Oh, silent rejoicing when one of us stumbled
Oh, silent rejoicing when one of us failed

Goldfinger
He's the man, the man with the Midas touch
A spider's touch
Such a cold finger
Beckons you to enter his web of sin
But don't go in
Golden words he will pour in your ear
But his lies can't disguise what you fear
For a golden girl knows when he's kissed her
It's the kiss of death from
Mister Goldfinger
Pretty girl beware of this heart of gold
This heart is cold.

Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark
At the end of a storm
There's a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark
Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone.

With your feet flyin' up in the air
Singin' hey diddle-diddle with the kitty in the middle
You be swingin' like you just didn't care
So I took a big chance at the high school dance
With a missy who was ready to play
Was it me she was foolin'?
'Cause she knew what she was doin'
Told me how to walk this way

Walk this way, walk this way

You pull on your finger, then another finger, then your cigarette
The wall-to-wall is calling, it lingers, then you forget
Ohhh how how how, you're a rock n roll suicide

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way
Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

 Saving my money
 Dreaming of glory
 Twitching like a finger

 Leaving nothing but the dead and dying

Walking the streets
Of some old ghost town
I tried to believe
In God and James Dean
But Hollywood sold out
Saw all of the saints
Lock up the gates
I could not enter
Walked into the flames
Called out your name
But there was no answer
And now I know my heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town

Down on the casting couch
 A star is gonna be born
 A star with the stature of a Harlow
 Who's doomed
 And groomed to enrapture
 All her co-stars, and stuntmen, the co-stars
 Oh, let there be lights, action, sound
 Lights, action, sound - Roll 'em!

 Out in the mezzanine
 On the arm of a dumb marine
 Her beauty looks out like a trailer
 Norman Mailer
 Waits to nail her
 He's under the bed
 And he's waiting for her to be dead
 He's out on the patio
 With his polaroid and scenario
 And he's armed and he's dangerously....

Fame, cars, lights stay on you
Cameras flashing for you
I’d trade it all on the way
To happiness. What’s the price of fame?

Yeah
Yo, what’s attracting people to the life of fame?
The nights away binging, getting blind for days
Would you expect a tidal wave of guys
All disguised as mates to try to take a slice of that pie you made?
When you’re famous, you’re the person people like to hate
Are you prepared for all the rumours and the lies they say?
Yo, looking back at life, I’d never thought I’d go this far
Yo, I’m just thankful people welcomed me with open arms
All these new friends and people that I hope to trust
Try to take advantage, got me thinking what their motives are?
Girl, if the light's on, on your iPod
And it’s my songs then drive on 'cause a fan is not what I want

Twenty-four little hours
Brought the sun and the flowers
Where there used to be rain

My yesterday was blue, dear
Today I'm a part of you, dear
My lonely nights are through, dear
Since you said you were mine

Lord, what a difference a day makes

Skies above can't be stormy

That thrilling kiss

Find romance on your menu
What a difference a day made

Take off the gloomy mask of tragedy,
It's not your style;
You'll look so good that you'll be glad
Ya' decide to smile!
Pick out a pleasant outlook,
Stick out that noble chin;
Wipe off that "full of doubt" look,
Slap on a happy grin!
And spread sunshine all over the place,
Just put on a happy face!

Big wheel keep on turnin'

Keep me searching for a heart of gold

The one thing that's understood

But you can sell your soul
And the closest thing to heaven is to rock and roll

There is a star that shines for you
Silver splits the blue
Love will see it through
And somewhere in my heart
There is the will to set you free
All you've got to be

So how could I dance with another,
Oh, when I saw her standing there
Well she looked at me
And I, I could see
That before too long
I'd fall in love with her
She wouldn't dance with another
Oh, when I saw her standing there

When they begin the beguine
It brings back the sound of music so tender
It brings back a night of tropical splendor
It brings back a memory evergreen

I'm with you once more under the stars
And down by the shore an orchestra's playing
And even the palms seem to be swaying
When they begin the beguine.

Love soft as an easy chair
 Love fresh as the morning air
 One love that is shared by two
 I have found with you

Like a rose under the April snow
 I was always certain love would grow
 Love ageless and evergreen
 Seldom seen by two

"well, well," said the rocking chair.
"it's been a while since I've seen such stark despair."
"who told you like was fair? "
"woa, woa," said the radio, "sit, there are some things you ought to know"
"there is little you can do to stop the pain and it's gonna happen time and time again,
But just remember even though it sounds insane,
It's impossible to ever love somebody in vain."

All right. it's gonna be all right. it's gonna be all right. it's gonna be all right.

It's not unusual to be loved by anyone
It's not unusual to have fun with anyone
But when I see you hanging about with anyone
It's not unusual to see me cry,
I wanna die

It's not unusual to go out at any time
But when I see you out and about it's such a crime
If you should ever wanna be loved by anyone,
It's not unusual it happens every day
No matter what you say
You'll find it happens all the time
Love will never do what you want it to
Why can't this crazy love be mine?

When the outside temperature rises
And the meaning is so clear
One thousand and one yellow daffodils
Begin to dance in front of you, dear

Are they trying to tell you something?
You're missing that one final screw
You're simply not in the pink, my dear
To be honest you haven't got a clue

I'm going slightly mad
I'm going slightly mad
It finally happened, happened
It finally happened
It finally happened
I'm slightly mad!

Out on the wiley, windy moors
We'd roll and fall in green
You had a temper like my jealousy
Too hot, too greedy
How could you leave me
When I needed to possess you?
I hated you, I loved you, too
Bad dreams in the night
They told me I was going to lose the fight
Leave behind my wuthering, wuthering
Wuthering Heights.

I keep going to the river to pray
'Cause I need something that can wash out the pain
And at most
I'm sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake

My friends I can figure out
You're the soul that's inside of you
It's rock hard in another you
But your evil was coming through
These eyes sitting on the wall
Well they watch every move I make
Bright light taking in the shape
You go hard, makes my spirit shake

I had to go through hell to prove I'm not insane
Had to meet the devil just to know his name
And that's when my love was burning
Yeah it's still burning

I dreamed last night I got on the boat to Heaven
And by some chance I had brought my dice along
And there I stood and I hollered, "Someone fade me"
But the passengers, they knew right from wrong

For the people all said, Sit down
Sit down, you're rockin' the boat
People all said, Sit down
Sit down, you're rockin' the boat

And the Devil will drag you under
By the sharp lapel of your checkered coat
Sit down, sit down, sit down, sit down
Sit down you're rockin' the boat

I don't go around with the local crowd
I don't dig what's in so I guess I'm out
I'm saying these things
So you know me, baby
So, you understand what I'm all about

The boat that I row won't cross no ocean
The boat that I row won't get me there soon

The boat that I row's big enough for two

On the day that you were born the angels got together.
 And decided to create a dream come true.
 So, they sprinkled moon dust in your hair of gold
 And star-light 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

So far away
Doesn't anybody stay in one place any more?
It would be so fine to see your face at my door
It doesn't help to know you're just time away
Long ago I reached for you and there you stood
Holding you again could only do me good
Oh how I wish I could but you're so far away

One more song about moving along the highway
Can't say much of anything that's new
If I could only work this life out my way
I'd rather spend it being close to you

If you are going my way
I want to drive it all night long


Through all these cities and all these towns
It is in my blood and it is all around

This is the road and these are the hands
From Mozambique to those Memphis nights
The Khyber Pass to Vancouver's lights

Travelling the road, last known is where I want to be
My compass directing, electing, an open road with golden trees
But there's an old man in need on the ground, I try not to make a sound
He holds out his hand as I walk away, I hear him say
Please don't be a stranger in my place
Travelling come to a tavern for a momentary rest
I see the old man that I passed on the road in his distress
As I turned to go I can hear him say, "Son, stay. Have a drink, I'll pay."
Let bygones be gone, it's all in the past, we raise a glass
Please don't be a stranger in my place
What if I could be what you wanted me to be
What if I could see what you wanted me to see
Come on and show me
Please don't be a stranger in my place

And I guess it was enough for me
To win the race? A prettier face!
Brand new clothes and a big fat place
On your rock and roll TV
But today the way I play the game is not the same
No way
Think I'm gonna get myself happy

I think there's something you should know
I think it's time I told you so
There's something deep inside of me
There's someone else I've got to be
Take back your picture in a frame
Take back your singing in the rain
I just hope you understand
Sometimes the clothes do not make the man

All we have to do now
Is take these lies and make them true somehow
All we have to see
Is that I don't belong to you

Waiting for my friend to come
And we'll get high
