Well, way down yonder in New Orleans in the land of the dreamy scenes
There's a Garden of Eden, ah, you know what I mean
Yeah, Creole babies with flashin' eyes softly whisper with tender sighs
And then you stop
Oh won't you give your lady fair a little smile
And then you stop
You bet your life you'll linger there a little while
Yeah, there is heaven right here on earth with those beautiful queens
Yeah, way down yonder in New Orleans

C'mon take me to the Mardi Gras
Where the people sing and play
Where the dancing is elite
And there's music in the street
Both night and day
Hurry take me to the Mardi Gras
In the city of my dreams
You can legalize your lows
You can wear your summer clothes
In the New Orleans
And I will lay my burden down
Rest my head upon that shore
And when I wear that starry crown
I won't be wanting anymore

Well I met old Satan in the lane
and I hit him in the head with a walkin' cane.
I'm goin' to wear that starry crown over there

Over there, over there,
I'm goin' to wear that starry crown, over there.
Well I got no skillet, I got no lid
Ashcake tastes like shortenin' bread!
I'm goin' to wear that starry crown over there.

Isn't that my girl
And is that my best friend
Aren't they walking much too close together
And it don't look like they're talking about the weather

I must be seeing things I thought I'd never see
I must be hearing things when I hear her say to him
"I want you, I need you, I love you"

The way she walks
The way she talks
How long can I pretend
Oh I can't help it, I'm in love
with the girl of my best friend

Her lovely hair
Her skin so fair
I could go on and never end
Oh I can't help it, I'm in love
With the girl of my best friend

Every time we lie awake
After every hit we take
Every feeling that I get
But I haven't missed you yet
Only when I stop to think about it
I hate everything about you
Why do I love you
I hate everything about you
Why do I love you

Only when I start to think about you I know
Only when you start to think about me do you know
I hate everything about you
Why do I love you
You hate everything about me
Why do you love me

I hate
You hate
I hate
You love me
I hate everything about you

So sick of your games, I?ll set your truck to flames
And watch it blow up, blow up, tell me (How you gonna see it now)
So far I'm sincere {I love you}, fabrications in my ear
Drive me so far up the wall, I come slidin? down

What is this I see (I don't believe this)
You don't come home to me
When you don't come home to me
I can't deal, can't bear (I won?t)

You keep tellin? me lies
But to your surprise
Look, I hope you're happy
Since you're caught out there

Yeah, you've been caught
Yo?, come on
Come on

I hate you so much right now

Never felt bad lending a hand
I think you hoped i wouldn't be in a band
Broken ashtray i can always replace
I kick the door then i spit in you face
You are not my friend
Never ever again
Dream of sunsets with a drink the in sand
Of all my friends and losing money in the van

Remember holidays that weren't such a waste
And a broken jaw from a punch in the face
Picture perfect with a frame that pretends
To be a martyr for a cause with no end
I was thinking that you needed a break
What i meant was every bone in your face

A mental photo of discoloured eyes
Of dirty carpets and moistened thighs
These recollections i will keep to the end
I'm sure it's wrong that you were never my friend

Sneaking out at night
Living like we're free
You and I can do anything we please
You've got the face to fit the frame
I cannot look away
Like can't you see
I'm hypnotized
We're picture perfect
Sweet like candy
I'll be your girl
Yeah
I'll be your baby
Picture perfect
Barefoot beauty
You stole my heart
Just like in a movie
Got the key to me
Tell me, tell me
I'm your darling daisy
Picture perfect
Sweet like candy
I'll be your girl
Yeah
I'll be your baby

I don't want half-hearted love affairs
I need someone who really cares
Life is too short to play silly games
I've promised myself I won't do that again
It's got to be perfect, it's got to be worth it, yeah
Too many people take second best
Well, I won't take anything less
It's got to be, yeah, perfect

Still you're in my dreams
Ok not constantly, baby
But believe me enough
To be eternally, endlessly
Stirred but never shaken
Well turned, but never burned
By your love

Your perfect love
(Your perfect love)
Your perfect love
(Your perfect love)
Your perfect love
(Your perfect love)
Your perfect love

And maybe I’m a little bit selfish
Maybe this is just a crush
I can be a little bit jealous
Maybe I think too much
I know that I can be hard to reach
But I promise I’d let you in, yeah
Girl you know I still need love


I know I’m perfectly imperfect for you
But girl I promise my intentions are true
So if you gotta little bit of patience
Baby we could make it through
Cause you know that I’ll be perfectly imperfect for you

'll give you all that I own
You got me standing in line
Out in the cold
Pay me some mind

Bend me, shape me
Anyway you want me
Long as you love me, it's all right
Bend me, shape me
Anyway you want me
You got the power to turn on the light

Everybody tells me I'm wrong
To want you so badly (badly, badly, badly)
But there's a force driving me on
I follow it gladly (gladly, gladly, gladly)
So let them laugh I don't care
Cause I got nothing to hide
All that I want is you by my side

Bend…

I got plenty of nothing
And nothing's plenty for me
I got no car - got no mule
I got no misery

Folks with plenty of plenty
They've got a lock on the door
Afraid somebody's gonna rob 'em
While there out making more - what for

 ain't got no home, ain't got no shoes
 Ain't got no money, ain't got no class
 Ain't got no skirts, ain't got no sweater
 Ain't got no perfume, ain't got no bed
 Ain't got no mind

 Ain't got no mother, ain't got no culture
 Ain't got no friends, ain't got no schooling
 Ain't got no love, ain't got no name
 Ain't got no ticket, ain't got no token

 Why am I alive anyway?
 Yeah, what have I got

Take me for what I am
'Cause I'll never change
All my colors for you
Take my love
I'll never ask for too much
Just all that you are
And everything that you do
I don't really need to look
Very much further

I don't wanna have to go
Where you don't follow
I will hold it back again
This passion inside
Can't run from myself
There's nowhere to hide
Don't make me close one more door
I don't wanna hurt anymore

Stay in my arms if you dare
Or must I imagine you there
Don't walk away from me
I have nothing, nothing, nothing
If I don't have you, you, you, you, you

And when I see the sign that points one way
The lot we used to pass by every day

Just walk away, Renée
You won't see me follow you back home
The empty sidewalks on my block are not the same
You're not to blame

From deep inside the tears
I'm forced to cry
From deep inside the pain
That I chose to hide

Just walk away, Renée
You won't see me follow you back home
Now as the rain burns down upon my weary eyes
For me it cries

Walk away, please go
Before you throw your life away
A life that I could share for just a day
We should have met some years ago

For your sake I say
Walk away, just go.
Walk away, and live
A life that's full
With no regret
Don't look back at me
Just try to forget

Why build a dream that cannot come true
So be strong, reach the stars now
Walk away, walk on.

The hours that were yours echo like empty rooms
The thoughts we used to share I now keep alone
I woke last night and spoke to you not thinking you were gone
And it felt so strange to lie awake alone

There's no regrets
No tears goodbye
I don't want you back
We'd only cry again
Say goodbye again

As long as the stars shine down from the heavens,
Long as the rivers run to the sea,
I'll never get over you getting over me
Oh, no matter what I do,
Each night's a lifetime to live through
I can't go on like this
I need your touch
You're the only one I've ever loved
Oh oh ah

And as long as the stars shine down from the heavens,
Long as the rivers run to the sea,
I'll never get over you getting over me
Never get over you getting over
I'll never get over you getting over me

Wide river
She opens her mouth to the sea
Singing dear, dear ocean, now
Here is a kiss from me

And she runs like a river to the setting sun
She runs like a river that has never been won
She runs like a river that will always be free

Wide river
Carry me back home
To the place I love
That I call my own

And we can run like a river to the setting sun
Run like a river that has never been won
Run like a river that will always be free
Ah, but I was so much older then ... I'm younger than that now

Left a good job in the city
Workin' for the man ev'ry night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleepin'
Worryin' 'bout the way things might have been

Big wheel keep on turnin'
Proud Mary keep on burnin'
Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river

Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis
Pumped a lot of pane down in New Orleans
But I never saw the good side of the city
'Til I hitched a ride on a river boat queen

Big wheel keep on turnin'
Proud Mary keep on burnin'
Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river
Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river

Mary, Mary, where you goin' to?
Mary, Mary, can I go too.
This one thing I will vow ya,
I'd rather die than to live without ya.
Mary, Mary, where you goin' to?

Mary, Mary, tell me truly
What did I do to make you leave me.
Whatever it was I didn't mean to,
You know I never would try and hurt ya.
Mary, Mary, where you goin' to?

What more, Mary, can I do
To prove my love is truly yours?
I've done more now than a clear-thinkin' man would do.

When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be
And when the broken-hearted people living in the world agree
There will be an answer, let it be
For though they may be parted, there is still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer, let it be

Don't take this Heaven from one
 Well if you must cling to someone
 Now and forever
 Let it be me

 Each time we meet love
 I find complete love
 Without your sweet love
 Tell me, what would life be?

 So never leave me lonely
 Just tell me you love me only
 And that you'll always
 Let it be me
