"With A Little Help From My Friends"
The Beatles > Joe Cocker

What would you think if I sang out of tune
Would you stand up and walk out on me
Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song
And I'll try not to sing out of key

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends

What do I do when my love is away
(Does it worry you to be alone?)
How do I feel by the end of the day
(Are you sad because you're on your own?)

No, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends

Do you need anybody
I need somebody to love
Could it be anybody
I want somebody to love

Would you believe in a love at first sight
Yes, I'm certain that it happens all the time
What do you see when you turn out the light
I can't tell you but I know it's mine

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends

Do you need anybody
I just need someone to love
Could it be anybody
I want somebody to love

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
With a little help from my friends

"Turn! Turn! Turn!"
(Words from Book Of Ecclesiastes) & Music Pete Seeger > The Byrds

To everything, turn, turn, turn
There is a season, turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven
A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep

To everything, turn, turn, turn
There is a season, turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven
A time to build up, a time to break down
A time to dance, a time to mourn
A time to cast away stones
A time to gather stones together

To everything, turn, turn, turn
There is a season, turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven
A time of love, a time of hate
A time of war, a time of peace
A time you may embrace
A time to refrain from embracing

To everything, turn, turn, turn
There is a season, turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven
A time to gain, a time to lose
A time to rend, a time to sow
A time for love, a time for hate
A time for peace, I swear it's not too late

"Both Sides, Now"
Joni Mitchell

Rows and flows 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

Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels
The dizzy dancing way you feel
As every fairy tale comes real
I've looked at love that way

But now it's just another show
You leave 'em laughing when you go
And if you care, don't let them know
Don't give yourself away

I've looked at love from both sides now
From give and take, and still somehow
It's love's illusions I recall
I really don't know love at all

Tears and fears and feeling proud
To say "I love you" right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
I've looked at life that way

But now old friends are acting strange
They shake their heads, they say I've changed
Well something's lost, but something's gained
In living every day

I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all

I've looked at life from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all

"Crystal Blue Persuasion"
Tommy James & The Shondells

Look over yonder
What do you see
The sun is arisin'
Most definitely
The new day is comin'
People are changin'
Ain't it beautiful

Crystal blue persuasion

Better get ready
Come see the light
Love, love is the answer
And that's alright
So don't you give up now
Cause it's so easy to find
And open your mind

Crystal blue persuasion
It's a new vibration

Crystal blue persuasion
Crystal blue persuasion

Maybe tomorrow
Will hear the sound
In every green field
In every town
All of his children
In every nation
There'll be peace and good
Brotherhood

Crystal blue persuasion
Crystal blue persuasion

"When A Man Loves Woman"
Percy Sledge

When a man loves a woman, can't keep his mind on nothin' else
He'd change the world for the good thing he's found
If she is bad, he can't see it, she can do no wrong
Turn his back on his best friend if he put her down

When a man loves a woman
He'll spend his very last dime tryin' to hold on to what he needs
He'd give up all his comforts and sleep out in the rain
If she said that's the way it ought to be

Well, this man loves you, woman
I gave you everything I have
Tryin' to hold on to your hot blood long
Baby, please don't treat me bad

When a man loves a woman, down deep in his soul
She can bring him such misery
If she is playin' him for a fool, he's the last one to know
Lovin' eyes can never see

When a man loves a woman he can do her no wrong
He can never hug some other girl
Yes, when a man loves a woman
I know exactly how he feels

'Cause baby, baby
When a man loves a woman...

"For What It's Worth"
Stephen Stills > Buffalo Springfield

There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware
I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down

There's battle lines being drawn
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind
I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down

What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying "Hooray for our side"
Stop, children, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
Step out of line - the men come and take you away
You better stop, hey, whats that sound?
Everybody look what's going down

"Young Girl"
Gary Puckett & The Union Gap

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
And though you know
That it is wrong to be
Alone with me
That come on look is in your eyes, oh

So hurry home to your mama
I'm sure she wonders where you are
Get out of here
Before I have the time
To change my mind
'cause I'm afraid we'll go too far, oh
Young girl

"Tell It Like It Is"
Aaron Neville

If you want something to play with
Go and find yourself a toy
Baby my time is too expensive
And I'm not a little boy

If you are serious don't play with my heart, it makes me furious
But if you want me to love you, then baby I will, girl you know I will

Tell it like it is
Don't be ashamed to let your conscience be your guide
But I... know deep down inside of me
I believe you love me, forget your foolish pride

Life is too short to have sorrow
We may be here today and gone tomorrow
You might as well get what you want
So go on and live, baby go on and live

Tell it like it is
Don't be ashamed to let your conscience be your guide
But I... know deep down inside of me
I believe you love me, forget your foolish pride

Tell it like it is
I'm nothing to play with
Go and find yourself a toy
But I... tell it like it is
My time is too expensive
And I'm not your little boy

Tell it like it is...

"Blowin' In The Wind"
Bob Dylan

How many roads must a man walk down, before they call him a man
How many seas must a white dove sail, before she sleeps in the sand
How many times must the cannonballs fly, before they are forever banned
The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind, the answer is blowing in the wind

How many years must a mountain exist, before it is washed to the sea
How many years can some people exist. before they're allowed to be free
How many times can a man turn his head, and pretend that he just don't see
The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind, the answer is blowing in the wind

How many times must a man look up, before he can see the sky
How many years must one man have, before he can hear people cry
How many deaths will it take till he knows, that too many people have died
The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind, the answer is blowing in the wind

"I'm A Believer"
The Monkees

I thought love was only true in fairytales
And for someone else and not for me
Love was out to get me
That's the way it seemed
Disappointment haunted all my dreams

Then I saw her face
Now I'm a believer
Not a trace of of doubt in my mind
I'm in love
I'm a believer, I couldn't leave her if I tried

I thought love was more or less a given thing
Seems the more I gave the less I got
What's the use in trying
All you get is pain
When I needed sunshine I got rain

Then I saw her face
Now I'm a believer
Not a trace of of doubt in my mind
I'm in love
I'm a believer, I couldnt leave her if I tried

Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane
Ain't got time to take a fast train
Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home
'Cause my baby just wrote me a letter

I don't care how much money I gotta spend
Got to get back to my baby again
Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home
'Cause my baby just wrote me a letter

Well, she wrote me a letter
Said she couldn't live without me no more
Listen mister, can't you see I got to get back
To my baby once more - Any way...

"Magic Carpet Ride"
Steppenwolf

I like to dream
Yes, yes right between the sound machine
On a cloud of sight I drift in the night
Any place it goes is right
Goes far, flies near, to the stars away from here

Well you don't know what we could find
Why don't you come with me little girl
On a magic carpet ride
Well you don't know what we could see
Why don't you tell your dreams to me
Fantasy will set you free
Close your eyes girl, look inside girl
Let the sound take you away

Last night I held Aladdin's lamp
So I wished that I could stay
Before the thing could answer me
Well someone came and took the lamp away
I looked around, a lousy candle was all I found

"The Girl From Ipanema"
Stan Getz & Astrud Gilberto

Tall and tan and young and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes, each one she passes goes - ah

When she walks, she's like a samba
That swings so cool and sways so gentle
That when she passes, each one she passes goes - ooh

Ooh, but I watch her so sadly
How can I tell her I love her
Yes I would give my heart gladly
But each day, when she walks to the sea
She looks straight ahead, not at me

Tall, and tan, and young, and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes, I smile - but she doesn't see, doesn't see
She just doesn't see, she never sees me

"Louie, Louie"

Me fine little girl, she waits for me
Me sail the ship across the sea
Me sail the ship by my all alone
Never think how I make it home

Louie, Louie, me gotta go
Louie, Louie, me gotta go

Three nights and days I sail the sea
Think of girl constantly
On the ship I know she there
Smell the roses in her hair

Louie, Louie, me gotta go
Louie, Louie, me gotta go

Me see Jamaica, the moon above
It won't be long, me see me love
Take her in my arms and then
Tell her I never leave again

Louie, Louie, me gotta go
Louie, Louie, me gotta go

"Born To Be Wild"
Steppenwolf

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

Yeah, darlin', gonna make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once and
Explode into space

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

Yeah, darlin', gonna make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once and
Explode into space

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

"There's A Kind of Hush"
Herman's Hermits

There's a kind of hush
All over the world tonight
All over the world
You can hear the sounds of lovers in love
You know what I mean

Just the two of us
And nobody else in sight
There's nobody else and I'm feeling good
Just holding you tight

So listen very carefully
Closer now and you will see what I mean
It isn't a dream

The only sound that you will hear
Is when I whisper in your ear I love you
For ever and ever

"Tears of A Clown"
Smokey Robinson & The Miracles

Now if there's a smile on my face
It's only there trying to fool the public
But when it comes down to fooling you
Now honey that's quite a different subject
But don't let my glad expression
Give you the wrong impression
'Cause really I'm sad, oh I'm sadder than sad
You're gone and I'm hurtin' so bad
Like a clown I appear to be glad, ooh yeah

Well there's some sad things known to man
But ain't too much sadder than
The tears of a clown
When there's no one around
The tears of a clown
When there's no one around

Now if I appear to be carefree
It's only to camouflage my sadness
And honey to shield my pride I try
To cover this hurt with a show of gladness
But don't let my show convince you
That I've been happy since you
Decided to go, oh I need you so
I'm hurt and I want you to know
For others I put on a show

Well there's some sad things known to man
But ain't too much sadder than
The tears of a clown
When there's no one around
The tears of a clown
When there's no one around

Just like Pagliacci did
I try to keep my surface hid
Smiling in the crowd I try
But in a lonely room I cry
The tears of a clown
When there's no one around, oh yeah, baby baby
Now if there's a smile on my face
Don't let my glad expression
Give you the wrong impression
Don't let this smile I wear
Make you think that I don't care
'Cause really I'm sad...

"Cherish"
The Association

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

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

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

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

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

And I do cherish you
And I do cherish you
Cherish is the word

Myrow & Gordon > Frank Sinatra

You make me feel so young
You make me feel like spring has sprung
Every time I see you grin
I'm such a happy individual

The moment that you speak
I want to go and play hide-and-seek
I want to go and bounce the moon
Just like a toy balloon

You and I, are just like a couple of tots
Running across the meadow
Picking up lots of forget-me-nots

You make me feel so young
You make me feel there are songs to be sung
Bells to be rung, and a wonderful fling to be flung

And even when I'm old and gray
I'm gonna feel the way I do today
'Cause you make me feel so young

"Just My Imagination"
The Temptations

Each day through my window I watch her as she passes by
I say to myself, "You're such a lucky guy"
To have a girl like her is truly a dream come true
Out of all the fellas in the world, she belongs to you

But it was just my imagination, runnin' away with me
It was just my imagination runnin' away with me

Soon we'll be married and raise a family
A cozy little home out in the country, with two children, maybe three
I tell you, I can visualize it all
This couldn't be a dream, I tell you how real it all seems

But it was just my imagination once again runnin' away with me
Tell you, it was just my imagination runnin' away with me

Every night, on my knees, I pray
Dear Lord, hear my plea
Don't ever let another take her love from me
Or I would surely die
Her love is heavenly
When her arms enfold me
I feel a tender love so deep
But in reality, she doesn't even know me

Just my imagination once again runnin' away with me
Tell you, it was just my imagination runnin' away with me

"The Times They Are A-Changin'"
Bob Dylan

Come gather round people wherever you roam
And admit that the waters around you have grown
And accept it that soon you'll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you is worth savin'
Then you'd better start swimmin' or you'll sink like a stone
For the times, they are a-changin'

Come writers and critics who prophesize with your pens
And keep your eyes wide, the chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon, for the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who that it's namin'
Oh the loser will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'

Come senators, congressmen, please head the call
Don't stand in the doorway, don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt will be he that has stalled
The battle outside ragin'
Will soon shake your windows and rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'

Come mothers and fathers all over this land
And don't criticize what you can't understand
Your sons and your daughter are beyond your command
Your old road is rapidly agin'
Please get out of the new one if you can't lend a hand
For the times they are a-changin'

The line, it is drawn, the curse, it is cast
The slow one will later be fast
And the present now will soon be the past
The order is rapidly fadin'
The first one now will later be last
For the times they are a-changin'

Music Franz Xaver Gruber, lyrics Joseph Mohr --> ?

Silent night, holy night, all is calm all is bright
Round yon virgin mother and child, holy infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace, sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, holy night, shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from heaven afar, Heavenly hosts sing Allelluia
Christ the savior is born, Christ the savior is born

Silent night, holy night, wondrous star, lend thy light
With the angels let us sing Alleluia to our King
Christ the Saviour is here, Jesus the Saviour is here

Silent night, holy night. Son of God, love's pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face, with the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus, Lord at Thy birth, Jesus, Lord at Thy birth

May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

Im dreaming of a white Christmas

May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

"River"
Joni Mitchell

It's coming on Christmas, they're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on
But it don't snow here
It stays pretty green
I'm going to make a lot of money
Then I'm going to quit this crazy scene
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

Oh I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I made my baby cry

He tried hard to help me
He put me at ease
Lord, he loved me so naughty
Made me weak in the knees
I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

I'm so hard to handle
I'm selfish and I'm sad
Now I've gone and lost the best baby
That I ever had
I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
Oh I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh I wish I had a river
I made my baby say goodbye

It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

Hugh Martin & Ralph Blane (from Movie "Meet Me In St. Louis", 1943)

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
From now on
Our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the Yule-tide gay
From now on
Our troubles will be miles away

Here were are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

Through the years we all will be together
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

"Somewhere"
West Side Story

There's a place for us
Somewhere a place for us
Peace and quiet and open air
Wait for us somewhere

There's a time for us
Some day a time for us
Time together with time to spare
Time to look, time to care

Someday, somewhere
We'll find a new way of living
We'll find a way of forgiving
Somewhere

There's a place for us
A time and place for us
Hold my hand and we're half way there

"The Thrill Is Gone"
B.B. King

The thrill is gone, the thrill is gone away
The thrill is gone, baby, the thrill is gone away
You know you've done me wrong, baby
And you'll be sorry someday

The thrill is gone, it's gone away from me
The thrill is gone, baby, the thrill has gone away from me
Although I'm still livin' but it's a long way out here

The thrill is gone, its gone away for good
Oh, the thrill is gone, baby, its gone away for good
Some day I know I'll be open armed, baby
Just like I know a man should

You know I'm free free now baby
I'm free from your spell
Well I'm free free free now
I'm free from your spell
And now that it's all over
Alls I can do is wish you well

"Will You Love Me Tomorrow"
Carole King

Tonight you're mine completely
You give you love so sweetly
Tonight the light of love is in your eyes
But will you love me tomorrow

Is this a lasting treasure
Or just a moment's pleasure
Can I believe the magic of your sighs
Will you still love me tomorrow

Tonight with words unspoken
You say that I'm the only one
But will my heart be broken
When the night meets the morning sun
I'd like to know that your love
Is love I can be sure of
So tell me now, and I won't ask again
Will you still love me tomorrow

- This went to #1 in 1960

"I Am A Rock"
Simon and Garfunkel

A winter's day
In a deep and dark December
I am alone
Gazing from my window
To the streets below
On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow

I am a rock
I am an island

I've built walls
A fortress deep and mighty
That none may penetrate
I have no need for friendship
Friendship causes pain
It's laughter and it's loving I disdain

I am a rock
I am an island

Don't talk of love
Well, I've heard the word before
It's sleeping in my memory
I won't disturb the slumber
Of feelings that have died
If I'd never loved
I never would have cried

I am a rock
I am an island

I have my books
And my poetry to protect me
I am shielded in my armor
Hiding in my room
Safe within my womb
I touch no-one and no-one touches me

I am a rock
I am an island
And the rock feels no pain
And an island never cries

"Someday We'll Be Together"
J. Bristol/H. Fuqua/R. Beavers > Diana Ross & The Supremes

Someday we'll be together, say, say, say it again
Someday we'll be together, oh, yeah, oh yeah

You're far away from me my love
And just as sure my, my baby, as there are stars above
I wanna say, I wanna say, I wanna say

Someday we'll be together, yes we will, yes we will
Say, someday we'll be together
I know, I know, I know, I know

My love is yours, baby, oh, right from the stars
You, you, you possess my soul now honey
And I know, I know you own my heart
And I wanna say:

Someday we'll be together
Some sweet day we'll be together
Yes we will, yes we will
Someday we'll be together
Yes we will, yes we will

Long time ago
My, my sweet thing
I made a big mistake, honey
I said, I said goodbye, oh, oh baby
Ever, ever, ever since that day
Now, now all I wanna do is cry, cry

Hey, hey, hey
I long for you every night
Just to kiss your sweet, sweet lips
Hold you ever, ever so tight
And I wanna say

Someday we'll be together
Yes we will, yes we will

"It's Not Unusual"
Tom Jones

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, oh 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 want to be loved by anyone
It's not unusual
It happens every day no matter what you say

You find it happens all the time
Love will never do what you want it to
Why can't this crazy love be mine

It's not unusual, to be mad with anyone
It's not unusual, to be sad with anyone
But if I ever find that you've changed at any time
It's not unusual
To find out that I'm in love with you

Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh

************************************************************

"When I Fall In Love"
Nat King Cole

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 fall in love with you.

And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too
Is when I fall in love with you

You make everything groovy, wild thing

Wild thing, I think you move me

So c'mon and hold me tight
You move me

Wild thing, you make my heart sing
You make everything groovy, wild thing

Wild thing

Shake it, shake it, wild thing

Oh, brother, brother, brother

Oh, brother, brother, brother

"You've Got A Friend"
James Taylor

When you're down and troubled
And you need some loving care
And nothing, nothing is going right
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest night

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there
You've got a friend

If the sky above you
Grows dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind begins to blow
Keep you head together
And call my name out loud
Soon you'll hear me knocking at you door

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there

Ain't it good to know that you've got a friend
When people can be so cold
They'll hurt you, and desert you
And take your soul if you let them

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there
You've got a friend

"The Tracks of My Tears"
Smokey Robinson & The Miracles

People say I'm the life of the party
'Cause I tell a joke or two
Although I may be laughin' loud and hearty
Deep inside I'm blue

So take a good look at my face
You see my smile looks out of place
If you look closer it's easy to trace
The tracks of my tears

I need you, need you

If you see me with another girl
Actin' like I'm havin' fun
Although she may be cute
She's just a substitute
Girl you're the permanent one

Ah, take a good look at my face
You see my smile looks out of place
Now look closer it's easy to trace
The tracks of my tears

Outside, I'm masquerading
Inside, my heart is fading
I'm just a clown
Since you put me down
My smile is my makeup
I wear since my breakup with you

Baby, baby, take a good look at my face
You see my smile looks out of place
If you look closer it's easy to trace
The tracks of my tears

Baby, baby, baby, take a good look at my face
You see my smile looks out of place
Just look closer it's easy to trace
The tracks of my tears

Baby, baby, baby, take a good look at this face
My smile looks out of place
If you look closer it's easy to trace
The tracks of my tears

"I Feel Like I'm Fixin' To Die Rag"
Country Joe & The Fish

Well, come on all of you, big strong men
Uncle Sam needs your help again
Yeah, he's got himself in a terrible jam
Way down yonder in Vietnam
So put down your books and pick up a gun
Gonna have a whole lotta fun

Chorus:
And it's one, two, three, What are we fighting for?
Don't ask me, I don't give a damn
Next stop is Vietnam
And it's five, six, seven
Open up the pearly gates
Well there ain't no time to wonder why
Whoopee! we're all gonna die

Yeah, come on Wall Street, don't be slow
Why man, this is war a-go-go
There's plenty good money to be made
By supplying the Army with the tools of its trade
Just hope and pray that if they drop the bomb
They drop it on the Viet Cong

Chorus

Well, come on generals, let's move fast
Your big chance has come at last
Now you can go out and get those reds
'Cause the only good commie is the one that's dead
And you know that peace can only be won
When we've blown 'em all to kingdom come

Chorus

Come on mothers throughout the land
Pack your boys off to Vietnam
Come on fathers, and don't hesitate
To send your sons off before it's too late
You can be the first ones in your block
To have your boy come home in a box

Chorus

You know, wine and women is all I crave
A big bad woman's gonna carry me to my grave

Born under a bad sign
I've been down since I began to crawl

If it wasn't for real bad luck
I wouldn't have no luck at all

Born under a bad sign

"Happy, Happy Birthday, Baby"
The Tune Weavers

Happy, happy birthday baby, although you're with somebody new
Thought I'd drop a line to say that I wish this happy day would find me beside you
Happy, happy birthday, baby
No, I can't call you my baby
Seems like years ago we met
On a day I can't forget
Cause that's when we fell in love
Do you remember the names we had for each other?
I was your pretty, you were my baby
How could we say goodbye?
Hope I didn't spoil your birthday
I'm not acting like a lady
So I'll close this note to you with good luck and wishes too
Happy, happy birthday, baby

- #5 hit in 1957 for the Tune Weavers. Writers Margo Sylvia and Gilbert Lopez later used
the same music with different lyrics to write "Merry, Merry Christmas, Baby."
It was recorded by Dodie "Pink Shoelaces" Stevens but it didn't make the Top 100.

"Subterranean Homesick Blues"
Bob Dylan

Johnny's in the basement, mixing up the medicine
I'm on the pavement, thinking about the government
The man in the trench coat, badge out, laid off
Says he's got a bad cough, wants to get it paid off
Look out kid, it's somethin' you did
God knows when, but you're doin' it again
You better duck down the alley way, lookin' for a new friend
The man in the coon-skin cap, in the big pen, wants eleven dollar bills...you only got ten

Maggie comes fleet foot, face full of black soot
Talkin' that the heat put, plants in the bed but
The phone's tapped anyway, Maggie says that many say
They must bust in early May, orders from the D. A.
Look out kid, Don't matter what you did
Walk on your tip toes, don't try "No-Doz"
Better stay away from those, that carry around a fire hose
Keep a clean nose, watch the plain clothes
You don't need a weather man, to know which way the wind blows

Get sick, get well, hang around an ink well
Ring bell, hard to tell, if anything is goin' to sell
Try hard, get barred, get back, write braille
Get jailed, jump bail, join the army, if you fail
Look out kid, you're gonna get hit, but users, cheaters
Six-time losers, hang around the theaters
Girl by the whirlpool, lookin' for a new fool
Don't follow leaders, watch the parkin' meters

Ah get born, keep warm, short pants, romance, learn to dance
Get dressed, get blessed, try to be a success
Please her, please him, buy gifts, don't steal, don't lift
Twenty years of schoolin', and they put you on the day shift
Look out kid, they keep it all hid
Better jump down a manhole, light yourself a candle
Don't wear sandals, try to avoid the scandals
Don't wanna be a bum, you better chew gum
The pump don't work, 'cause the vandals took the handles

Donovan

In the chilly hours and minutes
Of uncertainty
I want to be
In the warmhold of your loving mind

To feel you all around me
And to take your hand
Along the sand
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind

When sundown pales the sky
I want to hide a while
Behind your smile
And everywhere I'd look, your eyes I'd find
For me to love you now
Would be the sweetest thing
It would make me sing
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind
De diddy de de de de de de de de
Ya de de de de de de

When rain has hung the leaves with tears
I want you near
To kill my fears
To help me to leave all my blues behind

For standing in your heart
Is where I want to be
And I long to be
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind

Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind

Ah ah ah ah

"Turkey In The Straw"
?

As I was a-gwine down the road
With a tired team and a heavy load
I crack'd my whip and the leader sprung
I says day-day to the wagon tongue
Turkey in the straw, turkey in the hay
Roll 'em up and twist 'em up a high tuckahaw
And twist 'em up a tune called Turkey in the Straw

Went out to milk, and I didn't know how
I milked the goat instead of the cow
A monkey sittin' on a pile of straw
A-winkin' at his mother-in-law
Turkey in the straw, turkey in the hay
Roll 'em up and twist 'em up a high tuckahaw
And twist 'em up a tune called Turkey in the Straw

Met Mr. Catfish comin' down stream
Says Mr. Catfish, "What does you mean?"
Caught Mr. Catfish by the snout
And turned Mr. Catfish wrong side out
Turkey in the straw, turkey in the hay
Roll 'em up and twist 'em up a high tuckahaw
And twist 'em up a tune called Turkey in the Straw

Came to a river and I couldn't get across
Paid five dollars for a blind old hoss
Wouldn't go ahead, nor he wouldn't stand still
So he went up and down like an old saw mill
Turkey in the straw, turkey in the hay
Roll 'em up and twist 'em up a high tuckahaw
And twist 'em up a tune called Turkey in the Straw

As I came down the new cut road
Met Mr. Bullfrog, met Miss Toad
And every time Miss Toad would sing
Old Bullfrog cut a pigeon wing
Turkey in the straw, turkey in the hay
Roll 'em up and twist 'em up a high tuckahaw
And twist 'em up a tune called Turkey in the Straw

Oh I jumped in the seat and I gave a little yell
The horses ran away, broke the wagon all to hell
Sugar in the gourd and honey in the horn
I never been so happy since the day I was born
Turkey in the straw, turkey in the hay
Roll 'em up and twist 'em up a high tuckahaw
And twist 'em up a tune called Turkey in the Straw

"Happy Days Are Here Again"
Milton Ager/Jack Yellen

(Verse):
So long, sad times!
Go 'long, bad times!
We are rid of you at last
Howdy, gay times!
Cloudy grey times
You are now a thing of the past
'Cause

(Chorus):
Happy days are here again!
The skies above are clear again
Let us sing a song of cheer again
Happy days are here again!

Altogether shout it now!
There's no one who can doubt it now
So let's tell the world about it now
Happy days are here again!

Your cares and troubles are gone
There'll be no more from now on

Happy days are here again
The skies above are clear again
Let us sing a song of cheer again
Happy days are here again!

(2nd verse):
No more sighing
No more crying
Clouds of grey have turned to blue
Sorrow flying
Cares denying
All our rosy dreams have come true
'Cause

"In My Life"
Lennon/McCartney - Judy Collins

There are places I'll 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

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

In my life I love you more

"Smoke Gets In Your Eyes"
Otto Horbach/Jerome Kern - The Platters

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 them and I gaily laughed to think 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

Smoke gets in your eyes
Smoke gets in your eyes
Smoke gets in your eyes

"Never On Sunday"
The Chordettes

Oh, you can kiss me on a Monday a Monday a Monday is very very good
Or you can kiss me on a Tuesday a Tuesday a Tuesday in fact I wish you would
Or you can kiss me on a Wednesday a Thursday a Friday and Saturday is best
But never ever on a Sunday a Sunday a Sunday 'cause that's my day of rest

Most anyday you can be my guest
Anyday you say but my day of rest
Just name the day that you like the best
Only stay away on my day of rest

Oh, you can kiss me on a cool day a hot day a wet day
Which ever one you choose
Or try to kiss me on a gray day a May day a pay day
And see if I refuse

And if you make it on a bleake day a freak day or a week day
Well you can be my guest
But never ever on a Sunday a Sunday the one day
I need a little rest
Oh, you can kiss me on a week day a week day a week day the day to be my guest

"I Only Have Eye's For You"
The Flamingos

My love must be a kind of blind love
I can't see anyone but you
And dear, I wonder if you find love
An optical illusion, too

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


- words by Al Dubin, music by Harry Warren
- from the 1934 film "Dames" starring Dick Powell, Ruby Keeler and Joan Blondell
- #2 hit for Ben Selvin in 1934,
- #11 hit for The Flamingos in 1959 and
- #18 for Art Garfunkel in 1975

"Scarborough Fair"
Simon & Garfunkel

Are you going to Scarborough Fair
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine

Tell her to make me a cambric shirt
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Without no seams nor needlework
Then she'll be a true love of mine

Tell her to find me an acre of land
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Between the salt water and the sea strand
Then she'll be a true love of mine

Tell her to reap it in a sickle of leather
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
And to gather it all in a bunch of heather
Then she'll be a true love of mine

Are you going to Scarborough Fair
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine

"Spinning Wheel"
Blood, Sweat & Tears

What goes up must come down
Spinning wheel got to go round
Talkin 'bout your troubles it's a crying sin
Ride a painted pony let the spinning wheel spin

You got no money, you got no home
Spinning wheel all alone
Talkin 'bout your troubles and you never learn
Ride a painted pony let the spinning wheel turn

Did you find the directing sign, on the straight end of the highway
Would you mind the reflecting sign, just let it shine, within your mind
And show you the colors that are real

Someone is waiting just for you
Spinning wheel spinning through
Drop all your troubles by the riverside
Catch a painted pony on the spinning wheel line

Someone's waiting just for you
Spinning wheel spinning through
Drop all your troubles by the riverside
Ride a painted pony let the spinning wheel fly

"Sentimental Journey"
Glen Miller?

Gonna take a sentimental journey
Gonna set my heart at ease
Gonna make a sentimental journey
To renew old memories

Got my bag, I got my reservation
Spent each dime I could afford
Like a child in wild anticipation
Long to hear that "All Aboard"

Seven, that's the time we leave, at seven
I'll be waiting up for heaven
Counting every mile of railroad track that takes me back

Never thought my heart could be so yearny
Why did I decide to roam
Gonna take a sentimental journey
Sentimental journey home

"Drunken Sailor"

Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Earl-eye in the morning

What shall we do with a drunken sailor
What shall we do with a drunken sailor
What shall we do with a drunken sailor
Earl-eye in the morning

Put him in a long-boat till he's sober
Keep him there and make him bail 'er
Trice him up in a runnin' bowline
Tie him to the **** when she's yard-arm under
Put him in the scuppers with a hose-pipe on him
Take him and shake him and try and wake him
Give him a dose of salt and water
Give him a taste of the bosun's rope-end
Stick on his back a mustard plaster
Soak him in oil till he sprouts a flipper
Shave his belly with a rusty razor
Put him in the guard room till he gets sober

"Wouldn't It Be Nice"
Beach Boys

Wouldn't it be nice if we were older
Then we wouldn't have to wait so long
And wouldn't it be nice to live together
In the kind of world where we belong

You know its gonna make it that much better
When we can say goodnight and stay together

Wouldn't it be nice if we could wake up
In the morning when the day is new
And after having spent the day together
Hold each other close the whole night through

Happy times together we've been spending
I wish that every kiss was neverending

Wouldn't it be nice

Maybe if we think and wish and hope and pray it might come true
Baby then there wouldn't be a single thing we couldn't do
We could be married
And then we'd be happy

Wouldn't it be nice

You know it seems the more we talk about it
It only makes it worse to live without it
But lets talk about it

Wouldn't it be nice

One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
Two can be as bad as one
It's the loneliest number since the number one

No is the saddest experience you'll ever know
Yes, it's the saddest experience you'll ever know
`Cause one is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
One is the loneliest number, worse than two

It's just no good anymore since she went away
Now I spend my time just making rhymes of yesterday

One is the loneliest number, one is the loneliest number
One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
One is the loneliest, one is the loneliest
One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do

It's just no good anymore since she went away

Well the sun is surely sinking down
But the moon is slowly rising
So this old world must still be spinning around
And I still love you

So close your eyes
You can close your eyes, it's all right
I don't know no love songs
And I can't sing the blues any more
But I can sing this song
And you can sing this song
When I'm gone
It won't be long before another day
We're gonna have a good time
And no one's gonna take that time away
You can stay as long as you like

"The Circle Game"
Joni Mitchell

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

And the seasons they go round and round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We're captive on the carousel of time
We can't return, we can only look behind
From where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game

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 down
We're captive on the carousel of time
We can't return, we can only look behind
From where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game

Sixteen springs and sixteen summers gone now
Cartwheels turn to car wheels through the town
And they tell him "take your time, it won't be long now
Till you drag your feet to slow the circles down"

And the seasons they go round and round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We're captive on the carousel of time
We can't return, we can only look behind
From where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game

So the years spin by and now the boy is twenty
Though his dreams have lost some grandeur coming true
There'll be new dreams, maybe better dreams, and plenty
Before the last revolving year is through

And the seasons they go round and round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We're captive on the carousel of time
We can't return, we can only look behind
From where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game

- This is my favorite TWY song about the "wonder" years.
To me, it sums up the entire process of growing up.
It is a little sad, but also a little hopeful.
It is typical of Joni Mitchell's lilting style.

- A note from Dr. Stephensen, Associate Professor of Music Theory at the University of Oklahoma:
"The frequent aperiodicity of Mitchell's phrase rhythm and the resultant avoidance of regular hypermeter,
when combined with her acoustic textures, gives her music an earthy yet refreshing quality.
It is homespun, yet innovative. We feel that have always known it and yet we sense that we have
never before heard anything quite like it."

"I Can See Clearly Now"
Jimmy Cliff

I can see clearly now the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It's gonna be a bright, bright, sunshinin' day
It's gonna be a bright, bright, sunshinin' day

Oh yes, I can make it now the pain is gone
All of the bad feelings have disappeared
Here is the rainbow I've been praying for
It's gonna be a bright, bright, sunshinin' day

Look all around, there's nothing but blue skies
Look straight ahead, there's nothing but blue skies

I can see clearly now the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Here's the rainbow I've been praying for
It's gonna be a bright, bright, sunshinin' day
It's gonna be a bright, bright, sunshinin' day
Real, real, real, real bright, bright, sunshinin' day
Yeah, hey, it's gonna be a bright, bright, sunshinin' day

"Long May You Run"
Stephen Stills

We've been through some things together
With trunks of memories still to come
We found things to do in stormy weather
Long may you run

Long may you run
Long may you run

Although these changes have come
With your chrome heart shining in the sun
Long may you run

Well, it was back in Blind River
When I last saw you alive
But we missed that ship on the long decline
Long may you run

Maybe the Beach Boys have got you now
With those waves singing "Caroline"
Rolling down that empty road
Get into the surf on time

"Ain't No Mountain High Enough"
Dianna Ross

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
Just call my name
I'll be there in a hurry
You don't have to worry

'Cause 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

Remember the day
I set you free
I told you
You could always count on me
From that day on I made a vow
I'll be there when you want me
Some way, some how

'Cause 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

No wind, no rain

My love is alive
Way down in my heart
Although we are miles apart
If you ever need a helping hand
I'll be there on the double
As fast as I can

Don't you know that
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

Don't you know that
There ain't no mountain high enough
Ain't no valley low enough
Ain't no river wide enough

"Somewhere Over The Rainbow"
E. Y. Harburg > Judy Garland

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

Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow
Why then, oh why can't I?
If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can't I?

"American Tune"
Paul Simon

Many's the time I've been mistaken
And many times confused
Yes, and often felt forsaken
And certainly misused
But I'm all right, I'm all right
I'm just weary to my bones
Still, you don't expect to be
Bright and bon vivant
So far away from home, so far away from home

And I don't know a soul who's not been battered
I don't have a friend who feels at ease
I don't know a dream that's not been shattered
or driven to its knees
But it's all right, it's all right
We'be lived so well so long
Still, when I think of the road
we're traveling on
I wonder what went wrong
I can't help it, I wonder what went wrong

And I dreamed I was dying
And I dreamed that my soul rose unexpectedly
And looking back down at me
Smiled reassuringly
And I dreamed I was flying
And high up above my eyes could clearly see
The Statue of Liberty
Sailing away to sea
And I dreamed I was flying

We come on the ship they call the Mayflower
We come on the ship that sailed the moon
We come in the age's most uncertain hour
and sing an American tune
But it's all right, it's all right
You can't be forever blessed
Still, tomorrow's going to be another working day
And I'm trying to get some rest
That's all I'm trying to get some rest

So you want to be a rock-and-roll star
Then listen now to what I say
Just get an electric guitar
Then take some time and learn how to play

And with your hair swung right
And your pants too tight, it's gonna be all right
Then it's time to go downtown
Where the agent man won't let you down

Sell your soul to the company
Who are waiting there to sell plastic ware
And in a week or two if you make the charts
The girls'll tear you apart

The price you paid for your riches and fame
Was it all a strange game, you're a little insane
The money, the fame, and the public acclaim
Don't forget who you are
You're a rock-and-roll star

Behold the way our fine feathered-friend
His virtue doth parade
Thou knowest not my dim witted friend
The picture Thou hast made
Thy vacant brow and Thy tousled hair
Conceal Thy good intent
Thou noble upright, truthful, sincere
And slightly dopey gent - you are...

My funny valentine
Sweet comic valentine
You make me smile with my heart
You looks are laughable, unphotographable
Yet you're my favorite work of art
Are your looks less than greek
Is your mouth a little bit weak
When you open it to speak, are you smart
Don't change your hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little valentine stay
Each day is valentine's day

"What Becomes Of The Brokenhearted?"
Jimmy Ruffin

As I walk this land of broken dreams
I have visions of many things
But happiness is just an illusion
Filled with sadness and confusion

What becomes of the brokenhearted
Who had love that's now departed
I know I've got to find some peace of mind, baby

The roots of love grow all around
But for me they come a tumblin' down
Every day heartaches grow a little stronger
I can't stand this pain much longer
I walk in shadows searching for light
Cold and alone, no comfort in sight
Hoping and prayin' for someone to care
Always movin' and goin' nowhere

What's become of the brokenhearted
Who had love that's now departed
I know I've got to find some peace of mind, help me

I'm searching though I don't succeed
But someone's love there's growing need
f there's no way
All is lost there's no place for a beginning
All that's left is an unhappy ending

Now what's become of the brokenhearted
Who had love that's now departed
I know I've got to find some peace of mind
I'll be searching everywhere
Just to find someone to care
I'll be looking everyday
I know I'm gonna find a way

Nothing's gonna stop me now
I'll find a way somehow
I'll be searching everywhere
Lookin' for someone to share

"You're All I Need To Get By"
Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell

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

There's no, no looking back for us
We got love sure enough, that's enough
You're all, you're all I need to get by
I all, you're all I want to strive for and do a little more
All, all the joys under the sun wrapped up into one
You're all, you're all I need to get by

You're all I need to get by
Like an eagle protects his nest, for you I'll do my best
Stand by you like a tree, dare anybody to try and move me
Darling in you I found strength where I was torn down
Don't know what's in store but together we can open any door
Just to do what's good for you and inspire you a little higher
I know you can make a man out of a soul that didn't have a goal
Cause we, we got the right foundation and with love and determination

You're all, you're all I need to get by
I all, you're all I want to strive for and do a little more
All, all the joys under the sun wrapped up into one
You're all, you're all I need to get by

"Papa's Got A Brand New Bag"
James Brown

Come here sister...Papa's in the swing
He ain't too hip...about that new breed babe
He ain't no drag
Papa's got a brand new bag

Come here mama...and dig this crazy scene
He's not too fancy...but his line is pretty clean
He ain't no drag
Papa's got a brand new bag

He's doing the Jerk
He's doing the Fly
Don't play him cheap 'cause you know he ain't shy
He's doing the Monkey, the Mashed Potatoes, Jump back Jack, See you later alligator

Come here sister
Papa's in the swing
He ain't too hip now
But I can dig that new breed babe
He ain't no drag
He's got a brand new bag

Oh papa! He's doing the Jerk
Papa...he's doing the Jerk
He's doing the twist...just like this
He's doing the Fly every day and every night
The thing's...like the Boomerang
Hey...come on
Hey! Hey...come on
Hey! Hey...he's up tight...out of sight...
Come on, Hey! Hey!

"(Let Me Tell Ya About) The Birds And The Bees"
Jewel Akens - ?

Let me tell ya 'bout the birds and the bees
And the flowers and the trees
And the moon up above
And a thing called "Love"

Let me tell ya 'bout the stars in the sky
And a girl and a guy
And the way they could kiss
On a night like this

When I look into your big brown eyes
It's so very plain to see
That it's time you learned about the facts of life
Starting from A to Z

Let me tell ya 'bout the birds and the bees
And the flowers and the trees
And the moon up above
And a thing called "Love" (Yeah!)

When I look into your big brown eyes
It's so very plain to see

And a thing called "Love"

Let me tell ya 'bout the birds and the bees

And the birds and the bees
And the flowers and the trees
'Bout the birds and the bees

Imagine me and you, I do
I think about you day and night
It's only right, to think about the girl you love, and hold her tight
So happy together

And you say you belong to me and ease my mind
Imagine how the world could be so very fine
So happy together

When you're with me, baby, the skies will be blue, for all my life

"Seasons"
Elton John

For our world, the circle turns again
Throughout the year we've seen the seasons change
It's meant a lot to me to start anew
Oh the winter's cold but I'm so warm with you

Out there there's not a sound to be heard
And the seasons seem to sleep upon their words
As the waters freeze up with the summer's end
Oh it's funny how young lovers start as friends

Yes it's funny how young lovers start as friends

************************************************************

"Amazing Grace"
Traditional

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I'm found
Was blind, but now I see

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace that fear relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed

Through many dangers, toils, and snares
I have already come
'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home

How sweet the name of Jesus sounds
In a believer's ear
It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds
And drives away his fear

Must Jesus bear the cross alone
And all the world go free
No, there's a cross for everyone
And there's a cross for me

When we've been here ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we first begun

"Marine's Hymn"
?

From the halls of Montezuma, to the shores of Tripoli
We fight our country's battles in the air, on land and sea
First to fight for right and freedom, and to keep our honor clean
We are proud to claim the title of United States Marine

Our flag's unfurled to every breeze from dawn to setting sun
We have fought in every clime and place, where we could take a gun
In the snow of far off northern lands and in sunny tropic scenes
You will find us always on the job,The United States Marines

Here's health to you and to our Corps which we are proud to serve
In many a strife we've fought for life and never lost our nerve
If the Army and the Navy ever look on heaven's scenes
They will find the streets are guarded by United States Marines

"Goodbye, My Friend"
Karla Bonoff > Linda Ronstadt

Oh we never know where life will take us
We know it's just a ride on the wheel
And we never know when death will shake us
And we wonder how it will feel

So goodbye my friend
I know I'll never see you again
But the time together through all the years
Will take away the tears
It's OK now
Goodbye my friend

I'd see a lot of things that made me crazy
And I guess I held on to you
You could've run away and left, well maybe
But it wasn't time and we both knew

So goodbye my friend
I know I'll never see you again
But the love you gave me through all the years
Will take away my tears
I'm OK now
Good bye my friend

A life so fragile, a love so pure
We can't hold on but we try
We watch how quickly it disappears
And we'll never know why

But I'm OK now
Goodbye my friend
You can go now
Goodbye my friend

"Did You Ever Have To Make Up Your Mind"
Lovin' Spoonful

Did you ever have to make up your mind
To pick up on one and leave the other behind
It's not often easy, and not often kind
Did you ever have to make up your mind

Did you ever have to finally decide
To say yes to one and let the other one ride
There's so many changes and tears you must hide
Did you ever have to finally decide

Sometimes there's one with big blue eyes, cute as a bunny
With hair down to here and plenty of money
And just when you think she's that one in the world
Your heart gets stolen by some mousy little girl and...

Did you ever have to make up your mind
To pick up on one and leave the other behind
It's not often easy, and not often kind
Did you ever have to make up your mind

Sometimes you really dig a girl the moment you kiss her
And then you get distracted by her older sister
Then in walks her father, and takes you in line
And says "better go home, son, and make up your mind"

"Unforgettable"
Nat King Cole

Unforgettable, that's what you are
Unforgettable though near or far
Like a song of love that clings to me
How the thought of you does things to me
Never before has someone been more

Unforgettable in every way
And forever more, that's how you'll stay
That's why, darling, it's incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am unforgettable too

Unforgettable in every way
And forever more, that's how you'll stay
That's why, darling, it's incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am unforgettable too

"Thank Heaven For Little Girls"
Maurice Chevalier

Thank heaven, for little girls
For little girls get bigger everyday
Thank heaven, for little girls
They grow up in the most delightful way

Those little eyes so helpless and appealing
One day will flash and send you crashing through the ceiling
Thank heaven for little girls
Thank heaven for them all

No matter where, no matter who
Without them what would little boys do
Thank heaven, thank heaven
Thank heaven for little girls

"Who Knows Where The Time Goes"
Sandy Denny > Judy Collins

Across the evening sky, all the birds are leaving
But how can they know it's time for them to go
Before the winter fire, I will still be dreaming
I have no thought of time

For who knows where the time goes
Who knows where the time goes

Sad, deserted shore, your fickle friends are leaving
Ah, but then you know it's time for them to go
But I will still be here, I have no thought of leaving
I do not count the time

For who knows where the time goes
Who knows where the time goes

And I am not alone while my love is near me
I know it will be so until it's time to go
So come the storms of winter and then the birds in spring again
I have no fear of time

For who knows how my love grows
And who knows where the time goes

"Goodnight, Irene"
Written by Ledbetter & Lomax

Irene goodnight, Irene goodnight
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I'll see you in my dreams

Sometimes I live in the country
Sometimes I live in town
Sometimes I have a great notion
To jump into the river and drown

Irene goodnight, Irene goodnight
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I'll see you in my dreams

Quit ramblin' and quit gamblin'
Quit stayin' out late at night
Stay home with your wife and family
Sit down by the fireside bright

Irene goodnight, Irene goodnight
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I'll see you in my dreams

I asked your mother for you
She told me you was too young
I wished to God I'd never seen your face
I's sorry you ever was born

Irene goodnight, Irene goodnight
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I'll see you in my dreams

I love Irene, God knows I do
I'll love her till the seas run dry
And if Irene turns her back on me
I'd take morphine and die

Irene goodnight, Irene goodnight
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I'll see you in my dreams

You cause me to weep, you cause me to mourn
You cause me to leave my home
But the very last words I heard her say
Was "Please sing me one more song"

Irene goodnight, Irene goodnight
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I'll see you in my dreams

And climb on every rung

Forever young, forever young

May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift

May your heart always be joyful
May your song always be sung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young

May you stay forever young

The Monkees

Oh, I could hide 'neath the wings
Of the bluebird as she sings
The six o'clock alarm would never ring
But it rings and I rise
Wipe the sleep out of my eyes
My shaving razor's cold and it stings

Cheer up sleepy Jean
Oh what can it mean to a
Daydream believer and a
Homecoming queen

You once thought of me
As a white knight on his steed
Now you know how happy I can be
Oh, and our good times start and end
Without dollar one to spend
But how much, baby, do we really need

Whop! about to slip down
Workin' in a coal mine

Workin' in a coal mine

But when Saturday goes around
I'm too tired for havin' fun (Too tired for having fun)

How's about savin' all your time for me
No more lookin' I know I've been took in
How's about throw my date book over the fence
And find me one for five or ten cents

'Cause I'm writin' your name down on every page

You'd think that he could hear!
Wish I knew if he knew what I'm dreaming of!

Whippoorwill, whippoorwill, you and I know
Tammy, Tammy, Can't let him go!
The breeze from the bayou keeps murmuring low
Tammy, Tammy, You love him so!
When the night is warm, soft and warm
I long for his charms!
I'd sing like a violin
If I were in his arms
Wish I knew if he knew what I'm dreaming of!
Tammy, Tammy, Tammy's in love!

"Try To Remember"
Lyrics by Tom Jones, music by Harvey Schmidt.

Try to remember
The kind of September
When life was slow
And oh so mellow

Try to remember
The kind of September
When grass was green
And grain was yellow

Try to remember
The kind of September
When you were a tender
And callow fellow

Try to remember
And if you remember
Then follow

Try to remember
When life was so tender
That no one wept
Except the willow

Try to remember
When life was so tender
That dreams were kept
Besides your pillow

Try to remember
When life was so tender
That love was an ember
About to billow

Try to remember
And if you remember
Then follow

Deep in December
It's nice to remember
Although you know
The snow will follow

Deep in December
It's nice to remember
Without a hurt
The heart is hollow

Deep in December
It's nice to remember
The fire of September
That made us mellow

Deep in December
Our hearts should remember
And follow

"Love Is A Many Splendored Thing"
Lyrics by Paul Webster, music by Sammy Fain

I walked along the streets of Hong Kong town
Up and down, up and down
I met a little girl in Hong Kong town
And I said can you tell me please
Where's that love I've never found

Unravel me this riddle
What is love, what can it be
And in her eyes were butterflies
As she replied to me

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

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-spendored thing

"Moonlight Serenade"
Lyrics by Kurt Elling, music by Glenn Miller

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 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 kissing 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

At last my love has come along
My lonely days are over
And life is like a song

My heart was wrapped up in clover
The night I looked at you

I found a dream, that I could speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to press my cheek to
A thrill that I have never known

Ohh yeah yeah

You smile, you smile
Oh and then the spell was cast
And here we are in heaven
For you are mine at last

I found a dream, that I could speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to press my cheek to
A thrill that I have never known

Ohh yeah yeah

You smile, you smile
Oh and then the spell was cast
And here we are in heaven
For you are mine at last

At last...at last

Come on everyone we gotta get together now
Oh yeah, love's the only thing that matters anyhow
And the beauty of life can only survive
If we love one another
Oh yeah yesterday my friends were marching out to war
Oh yeah listen now we ain't a marching anymore
No we ain't gonna fight
Only God has the right
To decide who's to live and die
He gave us sweet cherry wine
So very fine

Drink it right down, pass it all around
So stimulating, so intoxicating
Sweet cherry wine
To open your mind
And everybody's gonna feel so fine
Drinking sweet cherry wine
Yes they will

Watch the mountain turn
To dust and glow away
Oh Lord, you know there's got to be a better way
And the old masquerade is a no soul parade
Marchin' through the ruins of time
To save us He gave us sweet cherry wine

Sweet cherry wine, so very fine
Drink it right down
Pass it all around
So stimulating, so intoxicating
Sweet cherry wine
Drink it with your brother
Trust in one another, yeah, yeah
He gave us sweet cherry wine
Sweet cherry wine
Drink it right down
Pass it all around

"Yankee Doodle"
?

Yankee Doodle went to town
Riding on a pony
Stuck a feather in his hat
And called it macaroni

Father and I went down to camp
Along with Captain Gooding
And there we saw the men and boys
As thick as hasty pudding

Chorus
Yankee doodle, keep it up
Yankee doodle dandy
Mind the music and the step
And with the girls be handy

There was Captain Washington
Upon a slapping stallion
A-giving orders to his men
I guess there was a million

Chorus

And then the feathers on his hat
They looked so' tarnal fin-a
I wanted pockily to get
To give to my Jemima

Chorus

And then we saw a swamping gun
Large as a log of maple
Upon a deuced little cart
A load for father's cattle

Chorus

- This song is several hundred years old, and apparently started in Denmark.
It has been transformed over the years, and may have as many as 170 verses. Oddly, I only knew the first one :-)

"Battle Hymn of the Republic"
Julia W. Howe

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword
His truth is marching on
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on

I have seen Him in the watch fires of a hundred circling camps
They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps
I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps
His day is marching on
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His day is marching on

I have read a fiery Gospel writ in burnished rows of steel
As ye deal with My contemners, so with you My grace shall deal
Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with His heel
Since God is marching on
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Since God is marching on

He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat
He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment seat
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! be jubilant, my feet
Our God is marching on
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Our God is marching on

In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me
As He died to make men holy, let us live to make men free
(originally let us die to make men free)
While God is marching on
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! While God is marching on

He is coming like the glory of the morning on the wave
He is wisdom to the mighty, He is honor to the brave
So the world shall be His footstool, and the soul of wrong His slave
Our God is marching on
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Our God is marching on

Come on baby, and rescue me
'Cause I need you by my side
Can't you see that I'm lonely

Come on baby, take me baby, hold me baby, love me baby
Can't you see that I need you, baby
Can't you see that I'm lonely
Rescue me, come on and take my hand
Come on baby and be my man, 'cause I love you, 'cause I want you
Can't you see that I'm lonely, mm, mm
Take me baby, love me baby, need me baby, mm, mm
Can't you see that I'm lonely

Rescue me, rescue me, mm, mmm

Mustang Sally, guess you better slow your Mustang down

"You Are Everything"
The Stylistics

Oh darling, I want to be everything to you

Today I saw somebody who looked just like you
He walked like you do, I thought it was you
As he turned the corner I called out your name
I felt so ashamed, when it wasn't you, wasn't you

You are everything, and everything is you
Oh, you are everything,and everything is you
'Cause you are everything, and everything is you

How can I forget when each face that I see
Brings back memories of being with you
I just can't go on living life as I do
Comparing each girl with you
Knowing they just won't do, they're not you

'Cause you are everything, and everything is you
Oh, you are everything, and everything is you
You are everything, and everything is you

Purple haze all in my brain
Lately things just don't seem the same
Actin' funny, but I don't know why
'Scuse me while I kiss the sky

Am I happy or in misery?
What ever it is, that girl put a spell on me

Help me

"Tossin and Turnin'"
Bobby Lewis

I couldn't sleep at all last night
Just a thinkin' bout you
Baby things weren't right
Well I was tossin' and turnin', turnin' and tossin'
Tossin' and turnin' all night

I kicked the blankets on the floor
Turned my pillow upside down
I never did before
Now I was tossin' and turnin', turnin' and tossin'
Tossin' and turnin' all night

Jumped out of bed
Turned on the light
I pulled down the shade
Went to the kitchen for a bite
Pulled down the shade
Turned off the light
Jumped back into bed
It was the middle of the night

The clock downstairs was striking four
Couldn't get you off my mind
I met the milkman at the door
And I was tossin' and turnin', turnin' and tossin'
Tossin' and turnin' all night

"Lean On Me"
Bill Withers

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
Till I'm gonna need somebody to lean on

Please swallow your pride, if have things you need to borrow
For no one can fill those needs that you won't let show
You just call on me brother when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

Lean on me when you't not strong, and I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on, for it won't be long
Till I'm gonna' need somebody to lean on

You just call on me brother if you need a friend
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

If there is a load you have to bear that you can't carry
I'm right up the road, I'll share your load
If you just call me

Call me, if you need a friend
Call me

"Teach Your Children"
Graham Nash > Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

You, who are on the road, must have a code that you can live by
And so become yourself because the past is just a good-bye
Teach you children well
Your father's hell did slowly go by
And feed them on your dreams
The one they pick
The one you'll know by
Don't you ever ask them why
If they told you, you would cry
So just look at them and sigh
And know they love you

And give of tender years, can't know the fears, that your elders grew by
And so please help them with your belief, they seek the turf before they can die
Teach your parents well
The childrens hell
Will slowly go by
And feed them on your dreams
The one they pick
The one you'll know by
Don't you ever ask them why
If they told you, you would cry
So just look at them and sigh
And know they love you

Grab a rope and I'll pull you in
Give you hope and be your only boyfriend, yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm talkin' about a soul man...

"I'm Different"
Randy Newman

I'm different and I don't care who knows it
Somethin' about me
It's not the same, yeah
I'm different and that's how it goes
Ain't gonna play no goddamn game

Got a different way a walkin'
I got a different kind of smile
I got a different way a talkin'
Drives the women kind of wild
(Kind of wild)

(He's different)
And I don't care who knows it
(Somethin' about him)
It's not the same
(He's different)
And that's how it goes
(And he's not gonna play your gosh darn game)

I ain't sayin' I'm better than you are
But maybe I am
I only know that when I look in the mirror
I like the man
(We like the man)

I'm different and I don't care who knows it
Somethin' about me
Not the same
I'm different and that's how it goes
Ain't gonna play your goddamn game

When I walk down the street in the mornin'
Blue birds are singin' in the tall oak tree
They sing a little song for the people
And they sing a little song for me

(He's different and he don't care who knows it
Somethin' about him
Not the same
He's different and that's how it goes
Ain't gonna play your gosh darn game)

I'm different and I don't care who knows it
Somethin' about me
Not the same
I'm different and that's how it goes
Ain't gonna play no boss man's game

"We've Got Tonight"
Bob Seger

I know it's late, I know you're weary
I know your plans don't include me
Still here we are, both of us lonely
Longing for shelter from all that we see
Why should we worry, no one will care girl
Look at the stars so far away

We've got tonight, who needs tomorrow
We've got tonight babe
Why don't you stay

Deep in my soul I've been so lonely
All of my hopes fading away
I've longed for love like everyone else does
I know I'll keep searching even after today

So there it is girl
I've said it all now
And here we are babe, what do you say

We've got tonight who needs tomorrow
We've got tonight babe
Why don't you stay

I know it's late, I know you're weary
I know your plans don't include me
Still here we are, both of us lonely
Both of us lonely

We've got tonight who needs tomorrow
Let's make it last
Let's find a way
Turn out the light, come take my hand now
We've got tonight babe
Why don't you stay

"To Each His Own"
Livingston & Evans > The Platters

A rose must remain with the sun and the rain
Or its lovely promise won't come true
To each his own, to each his own
And my own is you

What good is a song if the words just don't belong
And a dream must be a dream for two
No good alone, to each his own
For me there's you

If a flame is to grow there must be a glow
To open each door there's a key
I need you, I know, I can't let you go
Your touch means too much to me

Two lips must insist on two more to be kissed
Or they'll never know what love can do
To each his own, I've found my own
One and only you

- In 1946 there were five Top 10 versions:
Eddy Howard (#1), The Ink Spots (#1), Freddy Martin (#1),
The Modernaires with Paula Kelly (#3), and Tony Martin (#4).
Also The Tymes at #78 in 1964 and Frankie Laine at #82 in 1968.

"The Times They Are A-Changin'"
Bob Dylan

Come gather round people wherever you roam
And admit that the waters around you have grown
And accept it that soon you'll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you is worth savin'
Then you'd better start swimmin' or you'll sink like a stone
For the times, they are a-changin'

Come writers and critics who prophesize with your pens
And keep your eyes wide, the chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon, for the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who that it's namin'
Oh the loser will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'

Come senators, congressmen, please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway, don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt will be he that has stalled
The battle outside ragin'
Will soon shake your windows and rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'

Come mothers and fathers all over this land
And don't criticize what you can't understand
Your sons and your daughter are beyond your command
Your old road is rapidly agin'
Please get out of the new one if you can't lend a hand
For the times they are a-changin'

The line it is drawn, the curse it is cast
The slow one will later be fast
And the present now will soon be the past
The order is rapidly fadin'
The first one now will later be last
For the times they are a-changin'

"I Think It's Going To Rain Today"
Randy Newman

Broken windows and empty hallways
A pale dead moon in the sky streaked with gray
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it's going to rain today

Scarecrows dressed in the latest styles
With frozen smiles to chase love away
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it's going to rain today

Lonely, lonely
Tin can at my feet
Think I'll kick it down the street
That's the way to treat a friend

Bright before me the signs implore me
To help the needy and show them the way
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it's going to rain today

Breakin' rocks in the hot sun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I needed the money 'cause I had none
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I miss my baby and I feel so bad
I guess my race is run
She's the best girl I've ever had
I fought the law and the law won

Robbin' people with a six-gun

"Jamaica, Say You Will"
Jackson Browne

Jamaica was the lovely one, I played her well
As we lay in the tall grass where the shadows fell
Hiding from the children so they would not tell
We would stay there till her sister rang the evening bell

Jamaica, say you will help me find a way to fill these empty hours
And come again tomorrow

The daughter of a captain on the rolling seas
She would stare across the water from the trees
Last time he was home he held her on his knees
And said next time they would sail away, just where they pleased

Jamaica, say you will help me find a way to fill these lifeless sails
And stay until my ships can find the sea

Jamaica was a sweet one, I loved her true
She was a comfort and a mercy through and through
Hiding from this world together, next thing I knew
We'd brought her things down to the bay - what could I do

Jamaica, say you will help me find a way to fill these sails
And we'll sail until our waters have run dry

"Eight Miles High"
The Byrds

Eight miles high
And when you touch down
You find you're stranger than known
Signs in the street that say where you're going
Are somewhere just being their own
Nowhere is there warmth to be found
Just those afraid of losing their ground
Rain gray town
Known for its sound
In places small faces abound
Round the squares huddled in storms
Some laughing, some just shapeless forms
Sidewalk scenes and black limousines
Some living, some standing
Alone

"Takin' Care of Business"
Bachman-Turner Overdrive

You get up every morning
From your alarm clock's warning
Take the 8:15 into the city
There's a whistle up above
And people pushin', people shovin'
And the girls who try to look pretty

And if your train's on time
You can get to work by nine
And start your slaving job to get your pay
If you ever get annoyed
Look at me I'm self-employed
I love to work at nothing all day

And I'll be...
Taking care of business every day
Taking care of business every way
I've been taking care of business, it's all mine
Taking care of business and working overtime
Work out!

If it were easy as fishin'
You could be a musician
If you could make sounds loud or mellow
Get a second-hand guitar
Chances are you'll go far
If you get in with the right bunch of fellows

People see you having fun
Just a-lying in the sun
Tell them that you like it this way
It's the work that we avoid
And we're all self-employed
We love to work at nothing all day

And we be...
Taking care of business every day
Taking care of business every way
I've been taking care of business, it's all mine
Taking care of business and working overtime
Work out!

Take good care of my business
When I'm away, every day whoo!

You get up every morning
From your alarm clock's warning
Take the 8:15 into the city
There's a whistle up above
And people pushin', people shovin'
And the girls who try to look pretty

And if your train's on time
You can get to work by nine
And start your slaving job to get your pay
If you ever get annoyed
Look at me I'm self-employed
I love to work at nothing all day

Taking care of business every day
Taking care of business every way

Taking care of business and working overtime

Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business

"Pennies From Heaven"
Music Arthur Johnston, lyrics Johnny Burke -->?

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
If 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

For it's true, you are my destiny
When you hold my hand
I understand the magic that you do

You're my dream come true
My one and only you

For it's true, you are my destiny
When you hold my hand
I understand the magic that you do

You're my dream come true

See my love through loneliness, see my love through sorrow

If I worked my hands in wood, would you still love me
Answer me babe yes I would, I would put your love with me
If I were a miller, at a mill wheel grinding
Would you miss your colored eyes, soft shoes shining

If I were a carpenter, and you were a lady
Would you marry me anyway, would you have my baby
Would you marry me anyway, would you have my baby

But I don't care, with you I can't go wrong
Then put your little hand in mine
There ain't no hill or mountain we can't climb

If a picture paints a thousand words

The you I've some to know

If a face could launch a thousand ships
Then where am I to go
There's no one home but you
You're all that's left me too
And when my love for life is running dry
You come and pour yourself on me

If a man could be two places at one time
I'd be there with you
Tomorrow and today
Beside you all the way

If the world should stop revolving
Spinning slowly down to die
I'd spend the end with you
And when the world was through
Then one by one the stars would all go out
And you and I would simply fly away

Wonder if my rope's still hangin' to the tree
Love to kick my feet way down the shallow water
Shoo fly, dragon fly, get back to your mother
Pick up a flat rock, skip it across Green River

Up at Cody's camp I spent my days, oh
With flat car riders and cross-tie walkers
Old Cody, Junior took me over
Said, you're gonna find the world is smoulderin'
And if you get lost come on home to Green River

B. Dylan > The Band

They say everything can be replaced
They say every distance is not near
So, I remember every face
Of every man who put me here
I see my light come shinin'
From the west down to the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released

They say every man must need protection
They say that every man must fall
Yet, I swear I see my reflection
Somewhere so high above this wall
I see my light come shinin'
From the west down to the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released

Now yonder stands a man in this lonely crowd
A man who swears he's not to blame
All day long I hear him shouting so loud
Just crying out that he's been framed
I see my light come shinin'
From the west unto the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released...

Rockin' around the christmas tree
At the christmas party hop
Mistletoe hung where you can see
Every couple tries to stop

Rockin' around the christmas tree
Let the christmas spirit ring
Later we'll have some pumpkin pie
And we'll do some carolling

You will get a sentimental feelin'
When you hear
Voices singin' lets be jolly
Deck the halls with boughs of holly

Rockin' around the christmas tree
Have a happy holiday
Everyone dancin' merrily
In the new old fashioned way

"The Christmas Song"
Mel Torme

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos

Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
Will help to make the season bright
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight

They know that Santa's on his way
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
And every mother's child is going to spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly

And so I'm offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Though its been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you

Worry...why do I let myself worry?
Wonderin'...what in the world did I do?
Oh, crazy...for thinkin' that my love could hold you
I'm crazy for tryin', and crazy for cryin'
And I'm crazy for lovin' you

Crazy...for thinkin' that my love could hold you
I'm crazy for tryin', and crazy for cryin'
And I'm crazy for lovin' you

Tellin' dirty lies to my friends
But my own father said "Give her up, don't bother"
"The world isn't comin' to an end"

Walk like a man, talk like a man
Walk like a man my son
No woman's worth crawlin' on the earth
So walk like a man, my son

Bye bye baby, I don't-a mean maybe
Gonna get along somehow
Soon you'll be cryin' on account of all your lyin'
Oh yeah, just look who's laughin' now

Walk like a man from you
I'll tell the world "forget about it, girl"
And walk like a man from you

"Desperado"
The Eagles > Linda Ronstadt

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses
You been out ridin' fences for so long now
Oh, you're a hard one, I know that you got your reasons
These things that are pleasin' you can hurt you somehow

Don't you draw the queen of diamonds, boy, she'll beat you if she's able
You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet
Now it seems to me some fine things have been laid upon your table
But you only want the ones that you can't get

Desperado, oh, you ain't gettin' no younger
Your pain and your hunger, they're drivin' you home
And freedom, oh, freedom, well, that's just some people talkin'
Your prison is walkin' through this world all alone
Don't your feet get cold in the winter time
The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine
It's hard to tell the nighttime from the day
You're losin' all your highs and lows
Ain't it funny how the feelin' goes away

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses
Come down from your fences, open the gate
It may be rainin', but there's a rainbow above you
You better let somebody love you
You better let somebody love you
Before it's too late

"The Wedding Song"
Noel Paul Stookey

He is now to be among you at the calling of your hearts
Rest assured this troubador is acting on His part
The union of your spirits, here, has caused Him to remain
For whenever two or more of you are gathered in His name

There is Love
There is Love

A man shall leave his mother and a woman leave her home
And they shall travel on to where the two shall be as one
As it was in the beginning is now and til the end
Woman draws her life from man and gives it back again

And there is Love
There is Love

Well then what's to be the reason for becoming man and wife
Is it Love that brings you here or Love that brings you life
And if loving is the answer, then who's the giving for
Do you believe in something that you've never seen before

Oh there's Love
There is Love

Oh the marriage of your spirits here has caused Him to remain
For whenever two or more of you are gathered in His name

There is Love
There is Love

Hey, Venus! Oh, Venus!
Venus if you will
Please send a little girl for me to thrill
A girl who wants my kisses and my arms
A girl with all the charms of you

Venus, make her fair
A lovely girl with sunlight in her hair
And take the brightest stars up in the skies
And place them in her eyes for me

Venus, goddess of love that you are
Surely the things I ask
Can't be too great a task

Venus, if you do
I promise that I always will be true
I'll give her all the love I have to give
As long as we both shall live

"Home"
Karla Bonoff

Travelling at night, the headlights were bright
And we'd been up many an hour
And all through my brain, came the refrain
Of home and its warming fire

And home sings me of sweet things
My life there has its own wings
To fly over the mountain
Though I'm standing still

The people I've seen, they come in between
The cities of tiring life
The trains come and go, but inside you know
The struggle will soon be a fight

And home sings me of sweet things
My life there has its own wings
To fly over the mountains
Though I'm standing still

Travelling at night, the headlights were bright
But soon the sun came through the trees
Around the next bend, the flowers will send
The sweet scene of home in the breeze

And home sings me of sweet things
My life there has it's own wings
To fly over the mountain
Though I'm standing still

Ooooooh. La,la, la, la, la, la....

"You're Sixteen"
Bobby & Dick Sherman > Ringo Starr

You come on like a dream
Peaches and cream
Lips like strawberry wine
You're sixteen, you're beautiful and you're mine

You're all ribbons and curls
Oooh what a girl
Eyes that sparkle and shine
You're sixteen, you're beautiful and you're mine

You're my baby, you're my pet
We fell in love on the night we met
You touched my hand, my heart went pop
Oooh when we kissed, we could not stop

You walked out of my dreams, and into my arms
Now you're my angel divine
You're sixteen, you're beautiful, and you're mine

"Brown-eyed Girl"
Van Morrison

Hey, where did we go
Days when the rains came
Down in the hollow
Playin' a new game
Laughin' and a runnin'
Hey, hey, skippin' and a jumpin'
In the misty morning fog
Our hearts a thumpin'
And you, my brown-eyed girl
You, my brown-eyed girl

Now whatever happened to Tuesday and oh, so slow
Going down to the old man with a transistor radio
Standing in the sunlight laughin', hidin' behind a rainbow's wall
Slippin' and a slidin' all along the waterfall with you
My brown-eyed girl, you my brown-eyed girl

Do you remember when we used to sing
Sha la la la la la la la la la la tee da
Sha la la la la la la la la la la tee da
Sha la la la la la la la la la la tee da
La tee da

So hard to find my way
Now that I'm on my own
I saw you just the other day
My how you have grown
Cast my memory back there, Lord
Sometimes I'm overcome thinkin' about it
Making love in the green grass, behind the stadium with you
My brown-eyed girl, you my brown-eyed girl

"The Wild Heart Of The Young"
Karla Bonoff

These days when I take a look behind
I think about you and all that time
We were as one
Kids on the run

I loved you like I'll never love another
With the wild heart of the young
But it took until now to uncover
Oh, if I'd only known it then

You spoke of the dream we made come true
I remember how I looked up to you
It was then in your touch
You knew so much

Well, they watched while you broke all the rules
And everyone thought I was your fool
But I paid the price
Never even thought twice

If I thought about all the loves I knew
I knew I know they'd all fade except for you
And someday you'll see how much you taught me

"Goin' Up The Country"
Canned Heat

I'm goin' up the country, baby don't you wanna go?
I'm goin' up the country, baby don't you wanna go?
I'm goin' to someplace where I've never been before

I'm goin', I'm goin' where the water tastes like wine
I'm going where the water tastes like wine
We can jump in the water, stay drunk all the time

I'm gonna leave this city, got to get away
I'm gonna leave this city, got to get away
All this fussin' and fightin' man, you know I sure can't stay

Now Baby, pack and leave your truck, you know we've got to leave today
Just exactly where we're goin' I cannot say
But we might even leave the USA
Cause it's a brand new game and I don't wanna play

No use in you runnin' or screamin' and cryin'
Cause you've got a home as long as I got mine

Taj Mahal

Betcha goin' fishin' all of your time
Baby's goin' fishing too

Catch more fish than you
Many fish bites if ya got good bait
Here's a little tip I would like to relate

Big fish bites if ya got a good bait
I 'a goin' fishin'
Yes I'm goin' fishin'
And my baby's goin' fishin' too

I went down to my favorite fishin' hole
Baby grabbed me a pole and line
Throw my pole on in
Caught a nine pound catfish
Now I brought him on home for supper time

Big fish bites if ya got a good bait
I 'a goin' fishin'
Yes I'm goin' fishin'
And my baby's goin' fishin' too

Baby brother 'bout to run me outta my mind
Say can I go fishin' wit' you
I took him on down to the fishin' hole
Now what do you think he did do
Pulled a great big fish outta the bottom of the pond
And he laughed and jumped 'cause he was real gone

Big fish bites if ya got a good bait
I 'a goin' fishin'
Yes I'm goin' fishin'
And my baby's goin' fishin' too

Put 'em in the pot baby, put 'em in the pan
Honey cook 'em till they're nice and brown
Make a batch of buttermilk coal cakes mama
And you chew them things
And you chomp 'em on down

Big fish bites if ya got a good bait
I 'a goin' fishin'
Yes I'm goin' fishin'
And my baby's goin' fishin' too

Betcha goin' fishin' all of your time
Baby's goin' fishing too

"Bad, Bad LeRoy Brown"
Jim Croce

Well, the South side of Chicago
Is the baddest part of town
And if you go down there
You better just beware
Of a man named Leroy Brown

Now, Leroy more than trouble
You see, he stand about six-foot-four
All the downtown ladies called him "Treetop Lover"
All the men just called him "Sir"

And it's bad, bad Leroy Brown
The baddest man in the whole damned town
Badder than old King Kong
Meaner than a junkyard dog

Now, Leroy, he a gambler
And he likes his fancy clothes
And he likes to wave his diamond rings
In front of everybody's nose
He got a custom Continental
He got an Eldorado, too
He got a 32 gun in his pocket for fun
He got a razor in his shoe

And it's bad, bad Leroy Brown
The baddest man in the whole damned town
Badder than old King Kong
Meaner than a junkyard dog

Now, Friday, 'bout a week ago
Leroy shootin' dice
At the edge of the bar
Sat a girl named Doris
And ooh that girl look nice
Well, he cast his eyes upon her
And the trouble soon began
'Cause Leroy Brown learned a lesson about messin'
With the wife of a jealous man

And it's bad, bad Leroy Brown
The baddest man in the whole damned town
Badder than old King Kong
Meaner than a junkyard dog

Well, the two men took to fightin'
And when they pulled them off the floor
Leroy looked like a jigsaw puzzle
With a couple of pieces gone
And it's bad, bad Leroy Brown
The baddest man in the whole damned town
Badder than old King Kong
Meaner than a junkyard dog

"For Once In My Life"
Stevie Wonder

For once in my life I have someone who needs me
Someone I've needed so long
For once, unafraid I can go where life leads me
Somehow I know I'll be strong

For once I can touch what my heart used to dream of
Long before I knew someone warm like you
Would make my dream come true

For once in my life I won't let sorrow hurt me
Not like it's hurt me before
For once I have something I know won't desert me
I'm not alone anymore
For once I can say "This is mine, you can't take it!"
Long as I know I have love I can make it

For once in my life I have someone who needs me
For once I can feel that somebody's heard my plea
For once in my life I have someone who needs me

"I Am Woman"
Helen Reddy

I am woman, hear me roar
In numbers too big to ignore
And I know too much to go back an' pretend
'cause I've heard it all before
And I've been down there on the floor
No one's ever gonna keep me down again

Oh yes I am wise
But it's wisdom born of pain
Yes, I've paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to, I can do anything
I am strong (strong)
I am invincible (invincible)
I am woman

You can bend but never break me
'Cause it only serves to make me
More determined to achieve my final goal
And I come back even stronger
Not a novice any longer
'Cause you've deepened the conviction in my soul

I am woman watch me grow
See me standing toe-to-toe
As I spread my lovin' arms across the land
But I'm still an embryo
With a long long way to go
Until I make my brother understand

Oh yes I am wise
But it's wisdom born of pain
Yes, I've paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to I can face anything
I am strong (strong)
I am invincible (invincible)
I am woman
Oh, I am woman
I am invincible
I am strong

I am woman
I am invincible
I am strong

Isn't that the look of love

Look at the way he holds her hand
Look at the way they dance

I remember how we used to be, but
Look at the way he smiles at her, now
Isn't that the look of love

Here I am all by myself
Watching him with someone else
Bet he doesn't even know I'm here
Wish I could hold back my tears, but...

Look at the way he's kissing her
Look at him hold her tight
I remember his warm embrace
And the tender look on his face, yes

A kiss for luck and we're on our way

Before the rising sun we fly
So many roads to choose
We start out walking and learn to run
And yes we've just begun

Sharing horizons that are new to us
Watching the signs along the way
Talking it over just the two of us
Working together day to day
Together

And when the evening comes we smile
So much of life ahead
We'll find a place where there's room to grow
And yes we've just begun

If I didn't care more than words can say
If I didn't care would I feel this way
If this isn't love then maybe I'm wrong
But why do I lie awake all night and dream all day long

If I didn't care would it be the same
Would my every prayer begin and end with just your name
And would I be sure that this is love beyond compare
Would all this be true if I didn't care for you

If I didn't care more than words can say
If I didn't care, would I feel this way
If this isn't love then maybe I'm wrong
But what makes my head go 'round and 'round
While my heart stands still

Would my every prayer begin and end with just your name
And would I be sure that this is love beyond compare
Would all this be true

So take a letter, Maria, address it to my wife
Say I won't be coming home, gotta start a new life
So take a letter, Maria, address it to my wife
Send a copy to my lawyer, gotta start a new life

You've been many things but most of all a good secretary to me
And it's time like this I feel you've always been close to me
Was I wrong to work nights to try to build a good life
All work and no play has just cost me a wife

When a man loves a woman the way it's hard to understand
That she would find more pleasure in the arms of another man
I never really noticed how sweet you are to me
It just so happens I'm free tonight
Would you like to have dinner with me

So take a letter, Maria, address it to my wife
Send a copy to my lawyer gotta start a brand new life

Oh stand by me, stand by me, stand by me

Darlin', darlin', stand by mee, stand by me
Oh stand by me, stand by me, stand by me

"Stuck In The Middle (With You)"
Stealers Wheel

Well I dont know why I came here tonight
Ive got the feeling that something aint right
Im so scared in case I fall off my chair
And Im wondering how Ill get down the stairs

Clowns to the left of me
Jokers to the right
Here I am stuck in the middle with you

Yes Im stuck in the middle with you
And Im wondering what it is I should do
Its so hard to keep this smile from my face
Losing control running all over the place

Clowns to the left of me
Jokers to the right
Here I am stuck in the middle with you

Now you started off with nothing
And youre proud that your a self-made man
Ooooo-ooo-oooh
And your friends they all come crawling
Slap you on the back and say
Please...
Please...

Trying to make some sense of it all
But I see it makes no sense at all
Is it cool to go to sleep on the floor
I dont think that I can take anymore

Clowns to the left of me
Jokers to the right
Here I am stuck in the middle with you

Now you started off with nothing
And youre proud that your a self-made man
Ooooo-ooo-oooh
Now your friends they all come crawling
Slap you on the back and say
Please...
Please...

Well I dont know why I came here tonight
Ive got the feeling that something aint right
Im so scared in case I fall off my chair
And Im wondering how Ill get down the stairs

Clowns to the left of me
Jokers to the right
Her I am stuck in the middle with you
Yes Im stuck in the middle with you
Yes Im stuck in the middle with you
Yes Im stuck in the middle with you
Yes Im stuck in the middle with you

"Let's Stay Together"
Green, Mitchell, Jackson > Al Green

I, I'm so in love with you
Whatever you want to do
Is alright with me
'Cause you make me feel
So brand new
And I want to spend
My life with you
Let me say, since babe
Since we've been together
Loving you forever
Is what I need
Let me be the one
You come running to
I'll never be untrue

Let's stay together, babe
Let's stay together, babe
Loving you forever
Whether times are good or bad
Happy or sad
Whether times are good or bad
Happy or sad

Why, why do people break up
And turn around and make up
I just can't see
You never do that to me
Would you babe
So me all around you
Is all I see

"Swayin' To The Music"
Johnny Rivers

It's late at night and we're all alone
With just the music of the radio
No one's coming, no one's gonna telephone
Just and me and her and the lights down low

Chorus:
And we're slow dancing, swayin' to the music
Slow dancing, just me and my girl
Slow dancing, swayin' to the music
No one else in the whole wide world, in the whole wide world

And we just flow together when the lights are low
The shadows dancing all across the wall
The music's playing so soft and slow
And the rest of the world's so far away and small

Chorus

"Hold me," she said, "Hold me." I'll never let her go
And as we dance together in the dark
There's so much love in this heart of mine
She whispers to me and I hold her tight
She's the one I thought I'd never find

"Reelin' In The Years"
Steely Dan

Your everlasting summer
You can see it fading fast
So you grab a piece of something
That you think is gonna last
You wouldn't know a diamond
If you held it in your hand
The things you think are precious
I can't understand

Are you reelin' in the years
Stowin' away the time
Are you gatherin' up the tears
Have you had enough of mine

You been tellin' me you're a genius
Since you were seventeen
In all the time I've known you
I still don't know what you mean
The weekend at the college
Didn't turn out like you planned
The things that pass for knowledge
I can't understand

Are you reelin' in the years
Stowin' away the time
Are you gatherin' up the tears
Have you had enough of mine

I spend a lot of money
And I spent a lot of time
The trip we made in Hollywood
Is etched upon my mind
After all the things we've done and seen
You find another man
The things you think are useless
I can't understand

Are you reelin' in the years
Stowin' away the time
Are you gatherin' up the tears
Have you had enough of mine

"Walk Away, Renee"
Four Tops

And when I see the sign that points One Way
The one we used to pass by every day
Just walk away Renee, 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 fear that I forced aside
From deep inside the pain that I chose to hide
Just walk away Renee, you won't see me follow you back home
Now as the rain beats down upon my weary eyes
For me it cries

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

Your name and mine inside a heart upon a wall
Still find a way to haunt me, though they're so small
Just walk away Renee, you won't see me follow you back home
The empty sidewalks on my block are not the same
You're not to blame

"Could It Be I'm Falling In Love"
The Spinners

Since I met you I've begun to feel so strange
Every time I speak your name
You say that you are so helpless too
That you don't know what to do

Each night I pray there will never come a day
When you up and take your love away
Say you feel the same way too and I wonder what
It is I feel for you

Could it be I'm falling in love (with ya baby)
Could it be I'm falling in love (ooh)
Could it be I'm falling in love
With you, with you with you, with you

I don't need all those things that used to bring me joy
You made me such a happy boy
And honey you'll always be the only one for me
Meeting you was my destiny
You can be sure I will never let you down
When you need me I will be around
And darling you'll always be the only one for me
Heaven made you specially

Could it be I'm falling in love (with ya baby)
Could it be I'm falling in love (ooh)
Could it be I'm falling in love
With you, with you with you, with you

"Love Train"
The O'Jays

People all over the world join hands
Start a Love Train, Love Train

The next stop that we make will be England
Tell all the folks in Russia and China too
Don't you know that it's time to get on board
And let this train keep on riding, riding on through

Tell of your brothers over in Africa
Tell all the folks in Egypt and Israel too
Please don't miss this train at your station
'Cause if you miss it I feel sorry, sorry for you

"You Are So Beautiful"

You are so beautiful
To me

"Truckin'"
Grateful Dead

Truckin', got my chips cashed in
Keep truckin', like the do-dah man
Together, more or less in line
Just keep truckin' on

Arrows of neon and flashin' marquees out on Main street
Chicago, New York, Detroit and it's all the same street
Your typical city involved in a typical daydream
Hang it up and see what tommorrow brings

Dallas, got a soft blue sheen
Houston, too close to New Orleans
New York's got the ways and means
That just won't let you be

Most of the cats that you meet on the street speak of true love
Most of the time they're sittin' and cryin' at home
One of these days, baby, they gotta get goin'
Out of the door and down on the street all alone

Truckin', like the do-dah man
Once told me "You got to play your hand
Sometimes the cards ain't worth a damn
If you don't lay 'em down"

Sometimes the light's all shinin' on me
Other times I can barely see
Lately it occurs to me
What a long, strange trip it's been

What in the world ever became of sweet Jane
She's lost her sparkle, you know she isn't the same
Livin' on reds, vitamin C, and cocaine
All a friend can say is ain't it a shame

Truckin', up to Buffalo
Been thinkin' you got to mellow slow
It takes time, you pick a place to go
And just keep truckin' on

Sittin' and starin' out of the hotel window
Got a tip they're gonna kick the door in again
I like to get some sleep before I travel
But if you got a warrant, I guess you're gonna come in

Busted, down on Bourbon Street
Set up, like a bowling pin
Knocked down, it get's to wearin' thin
They just won't let you be

You're sick of hangin' around and you'd like to travel
Get tired of travelin' and you want to settle down
I guess they can't revoke your soul for tryin'
Get out of the door and light out and look all around

Sometimes the light's all shinin' on me
Other times I can barely see
Lately it occurs to me
What a long, strange trip it's been

Truckin', I'm a goin' home
Whoa, whoa baby, back where I belong
Back home, sit down and patch my bones
And get back truckin' on

"When I Grow Up To Be A Man"
The Beach Boys

When I grow up to be a man
Will I dig the same things that turn me on as a kid
Will I look back and say that I wish I hadn't done what I did
Will I joke around and still dig those sounds
When I grow up to be a man

Will I look for the same things in a woman that I dig in a girl
(fourteen fifteen)
Will I settle down fast or will I first wanna travel the world
(sixteen seventeen)
Now I'm young and free, but how will it be
When I grow up to be a man

Oooooo Ooooooo Oooooooo
Will my kids be proud or think their old man is really a square
(eighteen nineteen)
When they're out having fun yeah, will I still wanna have my share
(twenty twenty-one)
Will I love my wife for the rest of my life
When I grow up to be a man

What will I be when I grow up to be a man
(twenty-two twenty-three)
Won't last forever
(twenty-four twenty-five)
It's kind of sad
(twenty-six twenty-seven)
Won't last forever
(twenty-eight twenty-nine)
It's kind of sad
(thirty thirty-one)
Won't last forever
(thirty-two...)

"Never My Love"
The Association

You ask me if there'll come a time
When I grow tired of you
Never my love
Never my love

You wonder if this heart of mine
Will lose its desire for you
Never my love
Never my love

What makes you think love will end
When you know that my whole life depends on you

You say you fear I'll change my mind
I won't require you
Never my love
Never my love

How can you think love will end
When I've asked you to spend your whole life with me
Never my love
Never my love

************************************************************

"Stand By Your Man"
Tammy Wynette

Sometimes it's hard to be a woman
Giving all your love to just one man
You'll have bad times, he'll have good times
Doin' things that you don't understand

But if you love him, you'll forgive him
Even though he's hard to understand
And if you love him, oh be proud of him
'Cause after all he's just a man

Stand by your man, give him two arms to cling to
And something warm to come to
When nights are cold and lonely
Stand by your man, and show the world you love him
Keep giving all the love you can
Stand by your man

Stand by your man, and show the world you love him
Keep giving all the love you can
Stand by your man

- Tammy and her manager reportedly wrote this song in 20 minutes.

"White Sport Coat and A Pink Carnation"
Marty Robbins

A white sport coat and a pink carnation
I'm all dressed up for the dance
A white sport coat and a pink carnation
I'm all alone in romance

Once you told me long ago
To the prom with me you'd go
Now you've changed your mind it seems
Someone else will hold my dreams

A white sport coat and a pink carnation
I'm in a blue blue mood
I'm all dressed up for the dance
I'm all alone in romance

Once you told me long ago
To the prom with me you'd go
Now you've changed your mind it seems
Someone else will hold my dreams

A white sport coat and a pink carnation
I'm in a blue blue mood

"Our Love Is Here To Stay"
Nat "King" Cole

It's very clear
Our love is here to stay
Not for a year, but ever and a day

The radio
And the telephone
And the movies that we know
May just be passing fancies and in time may go

But oh my dear
Our love is here to stay
Together we're going a long long way

In time the Rockies may crumble
Gibraltar may tumble
They're only made of clay
But our love is here to stay

"Summertime Blues"
Cochran & Capeheart - Blue Cheer

I'm gonna raise a fuss, I'm gonna raise a holler
About a workin' all summer just to try to earn a dollar
Every time I call my baby, and ask to get a date
My boss says, "No dice son, you gotta work late"
Sometimes I wonder what I'm a gonna do
But there ain't no cure for the summertime blues

Well my mom and pop told me, "Son you gotta make some money"
If you want to use the car to go ridin' next Sunday
Well I didn't go to work, told the boss I was sick
"Well you can't use the car 'cause you didn't work a lick"
Sometimes I wonder what I'm a gonna do
But there ain't no cure for the summertime blues

I'm gonna take the weeks, gonna have a fine vacation
I'm gonna take my problem to the United Nations
Well I called my congressman and he said "Whoa!"
"I'd like to help you son but you're too young to vote"
Sometimes I wonder what I'm a gonna do
But there ain't no cure for the summertime blues

"Sealed With A Kiss"
Brian Hyland

Though we gotta say goodbye for the summer
Darling I promise you this
I'll send you all my love every day in a letter
Sealed with a kiss

Guess it's gonna be a cold lonely summer
But I'll fill the emptiness
I'll send you all my dreams every day in a letter
Sealed with a kiss

I'll see you in the sunlight
I'll hear your voice everywhere
I'll run to tenderly hold you
But darling you won't be there

I don't wanna say goodbye for the summer
Knowing the love we'll miss
Oh let us make a pledge to meet in September
And seal it with a kiss

"Up Around The Bend"
Creedence Clearwater Revival

There's a place up ahead
And I'm goin'
Just as fast as my feet can fly
Come away come away if you're goin'
Leave the sinkin' ship behind
Come on the risin' wind
We're goin' up around the bend

Bring a song and a smile for the banjo
Better get while the gettin's good
Hitch a ride to the end of the highway
Where the neons turn to wood
Come on the risin' wind
We're goin' up around the bend

You can ponder perpetual motion
Fix your mind on a cystal day
Always time for a good conversation
There's an era for what you say
Come on the risin' wind
We're goin' up around the bend

Catch a ride to the end of the highway
And we'll meet by the big red tree
There's a place up ahead
And I'm goin'
Come along come along with me
Come on the risin' wind
We're goin' up around the bend

"Kodachrome"
Paul Simon

When I think back
On all the crap I learned in high school
It's a wonder I can think at all
And though my lack of education
Hasn't hurt me none
I can read the writing on the wall

Kodachrome
They give us those nice bright colors
They give us the greens of summers
Makes you think all the world's a sunny day, oh yeah
I got a Nikon camera
I love to take a photograph
So mama don't take my Kodachrome away

If you took all the girls I knew when I was single
And brought them all together for one night
I know they'd never match my sweet imagination
everything looks worse in black and white

Kodachrome
They give us those nice bright colors
They give us the greens of summers
Makes you think all the world's a sunny day, oh yeah
I got a Nikon camera
I love to take a photograph
So mama don't take my Kodachrome away

Mama don't take my Kodachrome away
Mama don't take my Kodachrome away
Mama don't take my Kodachrome away
