I don't mind when you say that you're going away
I just don't want to be lonely
And I don't care if you share only moments a day
I just don't want to be lonely

I'd rather be loved and needed
Depended on to give a love I can't give
When you're gone, when you're gone
I just don't want to be lonely

I'd just rather be loved
I don't mind when the time sets the sun to the moon
I just don't want to be lonely
Let the stairs find you there, at the end of the room
I just don't want to be lonely

I don't have to sell my soul
He's already in me
I don't need to sell my soul
He's already in me
I wanna be adored
I wanna be adored

Children keep on dreaming
When you wake i will be gone
I will vanish with the darkness
And i will leave before the dawn
I am going to a city by the sea
But don't you worry, because

I carry you with me
I carry you with me

Down here all the fish is happy
 As off through the waves they roll

 The fish on the land ain't happy
 They're sad 'cause they're in a bowl

 But fish in the bowl is lucky
 They're in for a worser fate

 One day when the boss gets hungry
 Guess who's gon' be on the plate (uh-oh)

 Under the sea, under the sea
 Nobody beats us
 Fry us and eat us in fricassee

 We what the land folks love to cook
 Under the sea we off the hook

 We got no troubles life is the bubbles

 Under the sea, under the sea
 Since life is sweet here
 We got the beat here
 Naturally

Somewhere beyond the sea
Somewhere waiting for me
My lover stands on golden sands
And watches the ships that go sailin'
Somewhere beyond the sea
She's there watching for me
If I could fly like birds on high
Then straight to her arms
I'd go sailing
It's far beyond the stars
It's near beyond the moon
I know beyond a doubt
My heart will lead me there soon

Birds flying high
 You know how I feel
 Sun in the sky
 You know how I feel
 Breeze driftin' on by
 You know how I feel

 It's a new dawn
 It's a new day
 It's a new life
 For me
 And I'm feeling good
 I'm feeling good

 Fish in the sea
 You know how I feel
 River running free
 You know how I feel
 Blossom on a tree
 You know how I feel

 It's a new dawn
 It's a new day
 It's a new life
 For me
 And I'm feeling good

That is one lovely song, relaxing and sensual.

Morning has broken like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken like the first bird
Praise for the singing
Praise for the morning
Praise for them springing fresh from the world

Sweet the rain's new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dew fall on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass

Mine is the sunlight
Mine is the morning
Born of the one light Eden saw play

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free

Black bird fly, black bird fly
Into the light of the dark black night

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

I may be right I may be wrong
But I'm perfectly willing to swear
That when you turned and smiled at me
A nightingale sang in Berkeley square

(heard that recently, it was sung in a film I saw at cousin's house. It's stayed with me, charming song.)

 High hats and narrow collars
 White spats and fifteen dollars
 Spending every dime
 For a wonderful time

 If you're blue
 And you don't know where to go to
 Why don't you go where Harlem sits
 Puttin' on the Ritz
 Spangled Gowns upon the bevy of
 High browns from down the levy
 All misfits
 Puttin' on the Ritz

Baby put your clothes on, put on those brand new shoes
I wanna take you downtown, I gotta little blues to lose
I wanna see you dancing, swinging to a country song
I love to show you off, baby put your clothes on

We been sittin 'round here doin' nothin'
Baby we could use a little belt-buckle rubbin'
Where the lights are low and the music's fine
It Wouldn't hurt us none to have a little you and me time

Baby put your clothes on, paint up those pretty lips
Put on those cool blue jeans
The ones that ride low on your hips
You know you make their heads turn
Little girl you look so strong
I love to show you off, baby put your clothes on

Baby put your clothes on, put on those brand new shoes

Walking in the pouring rain
Walking with Jesus and Jane
Jane was in her turtleneck
I was much happier then

If I were to ask you
What would you do with yourself?
If I were to tell you
Would you just talk to yourself?

Am I asking oh for so much?
I'm not asking to be understood
Am I asking oh for so much?
I'm just looking for a brand new friend
A brand new friend

All I need is a friend
Someone to give a helpin' hand
When I'm afraid in the night
Someone to squeeze me
And tell me it's alright

You know I worry such a lot
And I would give all I've got
Just to have someone believe in me
Just to do that and put me
Back on evenly

Baby, baby, be my friend
Baby, baby, be my friend
Baby, baby, be my friend
I will love you till the very end

You've got a friend in me
You've got a friend in me
When the road looks rough ahead
And you're miles and miles from your nice warm bed
You just remember what your old pal said
Boy, you've got a friend in me
Yeah, you've got a friend in me

You've got a friend in me
You've got a friend in me
You've got troubles, and I've got 'em, too
There isn't anything I wouldn't do for you
We stick together and we see it through
'Cause you've got a friend in me
You've got a friend in me.

I never had no one that I could count on
I've been let down so many times
I was tired of hurtin' so tired of searchin'
Til you walked into my life
It was a feelin' I'd never known
And for the first time I didn't feel alone

You're more than a lover
There could never be another
To make me feel the way you do
Oh we just get closer
I fall in love all over
Every time I look at you

I don't know where I'd be
Without you here with me
Life with you makes perfect sense
You're my best friend
You're my best friend

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.

I wish my heart could whisper my delight
When I behold what I love best;
A rose, a ship, a book, a bird in flight,
Orion riding in the West.

But when I look upon the best of men,
Or hear his voice far up the hill,
Such noisy thoughts sing in my bosom then
I'm glad my heart is silent still.

My heart is silent still.

The heater's on
The windows are thin
I'm trying hard
To keep this warmth in

I turn to her
She's sound asleep
Someplace I don't know
Doesn't matter how far you come
You've always got further to go

I tried to tell you
I can only say it when were apart
About this storm inside of me
And how I miss your quiet, quiet heart.

The heat is on, on the street
Inside your head, on every beat
And the beat's so loud, deep inside
The pressure's high, just to stay alive
'Cause the heat is on


Oh-wo-ho, oh-wo-ho
Caught up in the action I've been looking out for you
Oh-wo-ho, oh-wo-ho
(Tell me can you feel it)
(Tell me can you feel it)
(Tell me can you feel it)
The heat is on, the heat is on, the heat is on
Oh it's on the street , the heat is - on

All around me
Feelin Hot Hot Hot!

Set the bait and I'm waiting
In a state of concentrating
I'm gonna knock this mothafucka down
Down, down-down-down
And there's a catch with this waiting
Alone my thoughts are overtaking
Do I got the strength to take this fucker down?

Deep in me
Is something
Talking shit
Pushing me
Cold

which naturally leads to:

Mama, just killed a man
Put a gun against his head
Pulled my trigger, now he's dead
Mama, life had just begun
But now I've gone and thrown it all away

Mama, ooh
Didn't mean to make you cry
If I'm not back again this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on
As if nothing really matters
Too late, my time has come
Sends shivers down my spine
Body's aching…

Joan was quizzical, studied pataphysical
Science in the home
Late nights all alone with a test-tube ohh oh oh oh
Maxwell Edison majoring in medicine
Calls her on the phone
Can I take you out to the pictures, Joan?
But as she's getting ready to go
A knock comes on the door

Bang, bang, Maxwell's silver hammer
Came down upon her head
Bang, bang, Maxwell's silver hammer
Made sure that she was dead

Indiana wants me, Lord, I can't go back there
Indiana wants me, Lord, I can't go back there
I wish I had you to talk to

If a man ever needed dyin', he did
No one had the right to say what he said about you
And it's so cold and lonely here without you
Out there the law's a comin'
I'm gettin' so tired of runnin'

Indiana wants me, Lord, I can't go back there

Uno, due, tre, quattro
Oh what did Missi sip boy
What did Missi sip
What did Missi sip boy
Through her pretty lips

She sipped a Minne sota
She sipped a Minne sota
She sipped a Minne sota
That's what she did sip

Un deux trois quatre
Where has Oregon, boy
Where has Oregon
If you wan Al-ask-a
Al-ask-a where she's gone
