3 Is The Magic Number
Original Artists: George R. Newall

Three is a magic number
Yes it is
It's a magic number
Somewhere in the ancient, mystic trinity
You get three as a magic number

The past and the present and the future
Faith and Hope and Charity
The heart and the brain and the body
Give you three as a magic number

It takes three legs to make a tri-pod
Or to make a table stand
It takes three wheels to make a ve-hicle
Called a tricycle

Every triangle has three corners
Every triangle has three sides
No more, no less
You don't have to guess
When it's three you can see
It's a magic number

A man and a woman had a little baby
Yes, they did
They had three in the family
And that's a magic number

Three, six, nine
Twelve, fifteen, eighteen
Twenty one, twenty four, twenty seven
Thirty

Multiply backwards from three times ten: 
Three times ten is thirty
Three times nine is twenty seven
Three times eight is twenty four
Three times seven is twenty one
Three times six is eighteen
Three times five is fifteen
Three times four is twelve
And three times three is nine
And three times two is six
And three times one is three, of course

Now take the pattern once more:
Three!... three, six, nine
Twelve!... twelve, fifteen, eighteen
Twenty-one!... twenty one, twenty four, twenty seven... thirty

Now multiply from 10 backwards:
Three times ten is thirty
Three times nine is twenty seven
Three times eight is twenty four
Three times seven is twenty one
Three times six is eighteen
Three times five is fifteen
Three times four is twelve
And three times three is nine
And three times two is six
And three times one...
What is it?
Three!
Yeah, that's a magic number

A man and a woman had a little baby
Yes, they did
They had three in the family
That's a magic number

40
Original Artists: U2

I waited patiently for the Lord
He inclined and heard my cry
He brought me right out of the pit
out of my reglade
I will sing a new song
How long to sing this song?
He set my feet upon a rock
and made my footsteps heard
Many will see
Many will see and fear
I will sing, sing a new song
How long to sing this song?

Add It Up
Original Artists: The Violent Femmes

Day after day 
I will walk and I will play
But the day after today
I will stop 
And I will start my way
Why can't I get just one kiss
Why can't I get just one kiss
Believe me there'd be somethings that I wouldn't miss
But I look at your pants and I need I need a kiss
Why can't I get just one screw 
Why can't I get just one screw
Believe me I know what to do
But something won't let me make love to you
Why can't I get just one fuck
Why can't I get just one fuck
I guess it's something to do with luck
But I waited my whole life for just one
Day afterday
I get angry
And I will say 
That the day 
Is in my sight 
When i'll take a bow
And say goodnight

Ain't That A Shame
Original Artist: Pat Boone

You made me cry when you said goodbye
Ain't that a shame?
My tears fell like rain
Ain't that a shame?
You're the one to blame

You broke my heart when you said we'll part
Ain't that a shame?
My tears fell like rain
Ain't that a shame?
You're the one to blame

Farewell, goodbye, although I'll cry
Ain't that a shame?
My tears fell like rain
Ain't that a shame?
You're the one to blame

You made me cry when you said goodbye
Ain't that a shame?
My tears fell like rain
Ain't that a shame?
You're the one to blame

Farewell, goodbye, although I'll cry
Ain't that a shame?
My tears fell like rain
Ain't that a shame?
You're the one to blame

Amazing Grace
- traditonal song -

Amazing grace
How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost
But now am found
Was blind but now I see
'Twas grace that taught my heart
To fear and grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed
Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come
'Tis grace hath brought me safe
Thus far and grace will lead me home
When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we first begun

Amy
Original Artist: Pure Prarie League

I can see why you think you belong to me
I never tried to make you think
Or let you feel one thing for yourself
But now you're off with someone else
And I'm alone
You see I thought that I might keep you for my own

Amy, what you gonna do?
I think I could stay with you for a while
Maybe longer if I do

Auld Lang Syne
Original Artist: Robert Burns

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And auld lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet
For auld lang syne. 

And surely, ye'll be your pint stowp!
And surely I'll be mine!
And we'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

We twa hae mn about the braes
And pou'd the gowans fine;
But we've wander'd mony a weary foot
Sin' auld lang syne.
 
We two hae paidled i' the burn,
Frae morning sun till dine;
But seas between us braid hae roar'd
Sin' auld lang syne.
 
And here's a hand, my trusty fiere,
And gie's a hand o' thine;
And we'll tak' a right gude-willy waught,
For auld lang syne.

Baby Ran
Original Artists: 54-40

Well I won't come back
And I won't say no
But that means the circle around us
Will cut a little lower like you said
One play near
You seem so surprised
Least inside you get that
Pretty little nightmare it comes alive

Baby ran she ran away
Why she ran I got to say
I'm lonesome all the time
Baby she ran she ran away
Why she ran I got to say

I know one reason why
Well each time I see you
So far away
A love letter worry that tells me
I'm all right all right
Here am I
Who chose to ride
Pass me wondering whether I got a job
But it's alright until one day

Black Magic Woman
Original Artist: Santana

I got a black magic woman
I got a black magic woman
I got a black magic woman
Got me so blind I can't see
I got a black magic woman
She trying to make a devil out of me
Turn your back on me baby
turn your back on me baby
Turn your back on me baby
Don't turn babe
Turn your back on me baby
You might just pick up my magic sticks
Got your spell on me baby
Got your spell on me baby
Got your spell on me baby
Turning my heart into stone
I need you so bad magic woman
I can't leave you alone

Blood and Roses
Original Artists: The Smithereens

It was long ago 
Seems like yesterday 
I saw you standin' in the rain
Then I heard you say 

I need your love but it comes out wrong 
I try to live but I don't belong 
I close my eyes and I see 

Blood and roses 

There were flowers in the Springtime 
October we were wed 
In wintertime the roses died
Her blood ran cold and then she said 

I want your love but it comes out wrong 
I want to live but I don't belong 
I close my eyes and I see 

Blood and roses 

It was long ago 
Seems like yesterday 
Saw you standin' in the rain when I heard you say 

I need your love but it comes out wrong 
I try to live but I don't belong 
I close my eyes and I see 

Blood and roses 
Blood and roses 
Blood and roses 
Blood and roses

Closer To Fine
Original Artists: The Indigo Girls

I'm trying to tell you something about my life
Maybe give me insight between black and white
And the best thing you've ever done for me
Is to help me take my life less seriously 
It's only life after all

Well darkness has a hunger that's insatiable
And lightness has a call that's hard to hear
I wrap my fear around me like a blanket
I sailed my ship of safety till I sank it
I'm crawling on your shores

I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains
I looked to the children, I drank from the fountains
There's more than one answer to these questions 
Pointing me in a crooked line
And the less I seek my source for some definitive
The less I seek my source
The closer I am to fine
The closer I am to fine

And I went to see the doctor of philosophy
With a poster of rasputin and a beard down to his knee
He never did marry or see a b-grade movie
He graded my performance, he said he could see through me
I spent four years prostrate to the higher mind
Got my paper and I was free

I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains
I looked to the children, I drank from the fountains
There's more than one answer to these questions 
Pointing me in a crooked line
The less I seek my source for some definitive
The less I seek my source
The closer I am to fine
The closer I am to fine

I stopped by the bar at 3 a.m. 
To seek solace in a bottle or possibly a friend
And I woke up with a headache like my head against a board
Twice as cloudy as i'd been the night before
And I went in seeking clarity.

I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains
I looked to the children, I drank from the fountains
Yeah we go to the doctor, we go to the mountains
We look to the children, we drink from the fountains
Yeah we go to the bible, we go through the workout
We read up on revival and we stand up for the lookout
There's more than one answer to these questions 
Pointing me in a crooked line
The less I seek my source for some definitive
The less I seek my source
The closer I am to fine
The closer I am to fine
The closer I am to fine

Come Back Down
Original Artists: Toad the Wet Sprocket

I've come here a thousand times
Some things never change
"Yes I will, anything you say"
I've quit this a million times
Can't quite stay away
Just one more time... I'll be ok
But i'm so damn tired

When I come back down
Though I'm crazy to
Anything you want from me I'll do

"Hey Joe, could you spare a buck
I could use some food"
What a laugh
One more fool
Two hours and it's back again
Lapping at my heels
Stop yelling... I'll get through
But i'm so damn tired

I've come here a thousand time
Some things never change
Lay me down... take me away
God, I'm so damn tired

Commodore Peter
Original Artists: The Silos

He's got himself a long green boat 
He's got himself a nice size outboard 
Swinging back and forth 
He left the door unlocked the night before 
Commodore Peter wants to know 

Where are you going? 
Can I take you home 
Or to the market or to church 
Or to a restaurant or a nightclub in St. Georges? 

He gave up all he knew for the help of other folks 
Skims across the water 
Back and forth, back and forth 
From Grand Anse beach to the village of St Georges 
Commodore Peter wants to know 

He knows, he's seen the writing on the wall 
No justice at all 
Commodore Peter took a guest into his house 
The one he trusted above the rest 
And there is no doubt and there is no fault 
He left the door unlocked 
Commodore Peter wants to know 

Crowing
Original Artists: Toad the Wet Sprocket

Been waiting
To find
You could've been happier
Given the time
If he'd make up his mind
You'd give yourself to anybody
Who would cross that line

And it was never question
He was crowing for repair
You'd give him love and affection
But you couldn't keep him there

Get over regrets
While you were sleeping with the angels
He was under the bed
And the more skin
That you shed
The more that the air in your throat will linger
When you call him your friend

Staring at a cold little hand
Reading fault lines
Of a shell of a man
You were waiting for a word from above
Wouldn't you know it
No answer ever did come

And it was never question
You were crowing for repair
You'd give him love and affection
But you couldn't keep him there

Dark End Of The Street
Original Artists: The Commitments

At the dark end of the street 
That is where we always meet 
Hiding in shadows where we don't belong 
Living in darkness to hide our wrong 

You and me 
at the dark end of the street 
You and me 

I know it's time to take it slow 
We have to pay for the love we stole 
it's a sin and we know it's wrong 
Ah but our love keeps coming on strong 

Steal away 
to the dark end of the street 
You and me 

They're gonna find us 
They're gonna find us 
They're gonna find us lost someday 
You and me 
At the dark end of the street 
You and me 

And when the daylight hour rolls around 
If by chance we are both down in the town 
If we should meet, just walk, walk on by 
Oh darlin' don't you cry 

Tonight we meet 
At the dark end of the street 
You and me 

Don't Go Back To Rockville
Original Artists: R.E.M.

Looking at your watch a third time waiting in the station for a bus
Going to a place that's far, so far away and if that's not enough
Going where nobody says hello, they don't talk to anybody they don't know
You'll wind up in some factory that's full time filth and nowhere left to go
Walk home to an empty house, sit around all by yourself
I know it might sound strange, but I believe
You'll be coming back before too long

Don't go back to Rockville
And waste another year

At night I drink myself to sleep and pretend
I don't care if you're not here with me
'Cause it's so much easier to handle
All my problems if I'm too far out to sea
But something better happen soon
Or it's gonna be too late to bring you back

It's not as though I really need you
If you were here I'd only bleed you
But everybody else in town only wants to bring you down and
That's not how it ought to be
I know it might sound strange, but I believe
You'll be coming back before too long

Doo Wop (That Thing)
Original Artist: Lauryn Hill

It's been three weeks since you've been looking for your friend
The one you let hit it and never called you again
'Member when he told you he was 'bout the Benjamins
You act like you ain't hear him then gave him a little trim
To begin, how you think you really gon' pretend
Like you wasn't down then you called him again
Plus when you give it up so easy you ain't even fooling him
If you did it then, then you probably fuck again
Talking out your neck sayin' you're a Christian
A Muslim sleeping with the gin
Now that was the sin that did Jezebel in
Who you gon' tell when the repercussions spin
Showing off your ass 'cause you're thinking it's a trend
Girlfriend, let me break it down for you again
You know I only say it 'cause I'm truly genuine
Don't be a hardrock when you're really a gem
Babygirl, respect is just a minimum
Niggas fucked up and you still defending them
Now Lauryn is only human
Don't think I haven't been through the same predicament
Let it sit inside your head like a million women in Philly, Penn.
It's silly when girls sell their soul because it's in
Look at where you be in hair weaves like Europeans
Fake nails done by Koreans
Come again
Come again, come again, come again, come again 
Guys you know you better watch out
Some girls, some girls are only about
That thing, that thing, that thing 
The second verse is dedicated to the men
More concerned with his rims and his Timbs than his women
Him and his men come in the club like hooligans
Don't care who they offend popping yang like you got yen
Let's not pretend, they wanna pack pistol by they waist men
Cristal by the case men, still in they mother's basement
The pretty face, men claiming that they did a bid men
Need to take care of their three and four kids men
They facing a court case when the child's support late
Money taking, heart breaking now you wonder why women hate men
The sneaky silent men the punk domestic violence men
The quick to shoot the semen stop acting like boys and be men
How you gon' win when you ain't right within
How you gon' win when you ain't right within
How you gon' win when you ain't right within
Come again
Come again, come again, come again, come again 
Girls you know you better watch out
Some guys, some guys are only about
That thing, that thing, that thing

Even Now
Original Artist: Barry Manilow

Even now
When there's someone else who cares
When there's someone home who's waiting just for me
Even now
I think about you as I'm climbing up the stairs
And I wonder what to do so she won't see
That even now when I have come so far
I wonder where you are
I wonder why it's still so hard without you
Even now
When I come shining through
I swear I think of you
And how I wish you knew
Even now
Even now
When I know it wasn't right
And I've found a better life than what we had
Even now
I wake up crying in the middle of the night
And I can't believe it still could hurt so bad
Even now
When I have I have come so far
I wonder why here you are
I wonder why it's still so hard without you
Even now when I come shining through
I swear I think of you
And how I wish you knew
Even now
Even now when I never hear your name
And the world has changed so much since you've been gone
Even now I still remember and the feelings still the same
And this pain inside of me goes on and on even now
I have come so far
I wonder where you are
I wonder why it's still so hard without you
Even now
When I come shining through
I swear I think of you
And how I wish you knew
Even now

Fall Down
Original Artists: Toad the Wet Sprocket

She said "I'm fine, I'm okay" cover up your trembling hands
There's indecision when you know you ain't got nothing left
When the good times never stay
And the cheap thrills always seem to fade away
When will we fall
When will we fall down

Jump back, got to get out of here
Been too long this time
Jump back, got to get out of here
When will, when will we fall down

She hates her life, she hates her skin, she even hates all her friends
Tries to hold on to all the reputations she can't mend
And there's some chance we could fail
But the last time someone was always there for bail
When will we fall
When will we fall down

She said "I'm fine, I'm okay" cover up your trembling hands
There's indecision when you know you ain't got nothing left
For the last time conscience calls
For a good friend I was never there at all
When will we fall
When will we fall down

Fight The Power
Original Artists: Public Enemy

1989 the number another summer (get down)
Sound of the funky drummer
Music hittin' your heart cause I know you got sould
(Brothers and sisters, hey)
Listen if you're missin' y'all
Swingin' while I'm singin'
Givin' whatcha gettin'
Knowin' what I know
While the Black bands sweatin'
And the rhythm rhymes rollin'
Got to give us what we want
Gotta give us what we need
Our freedom of speech is freedom or death
We got to fight the powers that be
Lemme hear you say
Fight the power 

As the rhythm designed to bounce
What counts is that the rhymes
Designed to fill your mind
Now that you've realized the prides arrived
We got to pump the stuff to make us tough
from the heart
It's a start, a work of art
To revolutionize make a change nothin's strange
People, people we are the same
No we're not the same
Cause we don't know the game
What we need is awareness, we can't get careless
You say what is this?
My beloved lets get down to business
Mental self defensive fitness
(Yo) bum rush the show
You gotta go for what you know
Make everybody see, in order to fight the powers that be
Lemme hear you say...
Fight the Power 

Elvis was a hero to most
But he never meant shit to me you see
Straight up racist that sucker was
Simple and plain
Mother fuck him and John Wayne
Cause I'm Black and I'm proud
I'm ready and hyped plus I'm amped
Most of my heroes don't appear on no stamps
Sample a look back you look and find
Nothing but rednecks for 400 years if you check
Don't worry be happy
Was a number one jam
Damn if I say it you can slap me right here
(Get it) lets get this party started right
Right on, c'mon
What we got to say
Power to the people no delay
To make everybody see
In order to fight the powers that be 
(Fight the Power)

I try, I try to speak up
But only in you I'm complete

Gloria, in Te Domine

I Can't Explain
Original Artists: The Who

We got a feeling inside
It's a certain kind
I feel hot and cold
Get down to my soul
I said I can't explain
I'm feeling good now baby

Dizzy in my head and I'm feeling blue
Things you said maybe they're true
Forgetting from your dreams
Again and again I know what it means but

I can't explain I think it's love
Try to say to you when I'm feeling blue
But I can't explain
Just hear what I'm saying baby

Dizzy in the head and I'm feeling bad
The things you said got me real mad
Forgetting from your dreams again and again
I know that it means but

I can't explain I think it's love
Try to say to you when I'm feeling blue
But I can't explain
Just hear me one more time baby

Dizzy in the head and I'm feeling bad
The things you said got me real mad
Forgetting from your dreams again and again
I know that it means but

I can't explain I think it's love
Try to say to you when I'm feeling blue
But I can't explain
Just hear me one more time baby

You're running out of my mind
You're running out of my mind
You're running out of my mind

Mind mind mind mind mind mind mind mind

I Fought The Law
Original Artist: Bobby Fuller

Breaking rocks in the hot sun 
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won
I needed money 'cause I had none
I fought... 

I miss my baby and I feel so sad
I guess my race is run 
Well she's the best girl that I ever had                      
I fought... 

Robbing people with a six gun
I fought... 
I miss my baby and good fun
I fought... 

I Will Follow
Original Artists: U2

I was on the outside, when you said
You said you needed me
I was looking at myself, I was blind
I could not see

A boy tries hard to be a man
His mother takes him by his hand
If he stops to think he starts to cry
Oh why?

If you walkaway, walkaway
I walkaway, walkaway - I will follow

I was on the inside
when they pulled the four walls down
I was looking through the window
I was lost, I am found

Walkaway, walkaway
I walkaway, walkaway - I will follow
If you walkaway, walkaway
I walkaway, walkaway - I will follow

Your eyes make a circle
I see you when I go in there
Your eyes, your eyes

If you walkaway, walkaway
I walkaway, walkaway - I will follow

I will follow
I will follow...

I Will Not Take These Things For Granted
Original Artists: Toad the Wet Sprocket

One part of me just wants to tell you everything
One part just needs the quiet
And if I'm lonely here, I'm lonely hereand on the telephone
You offer reassurance

I will not take these things for granted 

How can I hold the part of me that only you can carry
It needs a strength I haven't found
But if it's frightening, I'll bear the cold
And on the telephone
You offer warm asylum

I'm listening
Flowers in the garden
Laughter in the hall
Children in the park
I will not take these things for granted anymore

To crawl inside the wire and feel something near me
To feel this accepting
That it is lonely here, but not alone
And on the telephone
You offer visions dancing

I'm listening
Music in the bedroom
Laughter in the hall
Dive into the ocean
Singing by the fire
Running through the forest
And standing in the wind
In rolling canyons 

I will not take these things for granted

I'm On Fire
Original Artist: Bruce Springsteen

Hey little girl is your daddy home 
Did he go away and leave you all alone 
I got a bad desire 
I'm on fire 
Tell me now baby is he good to you 
Can do to you the things that I do 
I can take you higher 
I'm on fire 
Sometimes it's like
Someone took a knife baby edgy
And dull
And cut a six-inch valley through the middle of my soul 
At night I wake up
With the sheets soaking wet
And a freight train running through the middle of my head 
Only you can cool my desire 
I'm on fire

Imagine
Original Artist: John Lennon

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today... 
Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace... 
You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one 
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world... 
You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one 

Interstate Love Song
Original Artists: Stone Temple Pilots

Waiting on a Sunday afternoon
For what I read between the lines
Your lies
Feeling like a hand in rusted shame
So do you laugh or does it cry?
Reply?

Leaving on a southern train
Only yesterday you lied
Promises of what I seemed to be
Only watched the time go by
All of these things you said to me

Breathing is the hardest thing to do
With all I've said and
All that's dead for you
You lied - goodbye

Leaving on a southern train
Only yesterday you lied
Promises of what I seemed to be
Only watched the time go by,
All of these things I said to you

Is It For Me?
Original Artists: Toad the Wet Sprocket

Bradley says it's haunted
The house upon the hill
And if we meet at four a.m.
Then we would know for sure

We carry the ladders
And lean them against it
And climb them as we look

Someone kicked a ladder
Bradley took a spill
Said his leg was broken
So we dragged him down the hill

And through the door
What do I see?
Something is happening
Is it for me?

Mom found out the whole thing
Mine was first to call
Bradley's leg healed badly
At least he still can walk

We leave in the morning
And no one will hear us
And meet in the clearing
And I'll bring the sandwiches

David come quickly
You're missing the whole thing
Now open your big eyes
And take in the sunrise
And through the door
What do I see? 
Something is happening
Is it for me?

It Takes Time
Original Artist: Patti Smith

No equation 
To explain the division of the senses 
No sound to reflect 
The radiance of time 
In the beginningest dream 
Halls of disorder 
Where we are swept to encircle dawn 
Strapped in a low car 
Racing thru silence 
Trumpeting bliss 
You could kiss the world 
Goodbye 

Standing outside the courthouse 
In the rain 
Seemed like a lost soul 
From the chapel of dreams 
With a handful of images 
Faces of children 
Phases of the moon 
One little thing you get wrong 
Changes the dimensions 
Streets, swept memory 
Diffused and lost 
Like a prayer in the sun 

Sometimes you can't tell 
whether you're waking up 
Or going to sleep 
Spiralling 
Unnumbered streets 
All the games cannot be yours 
All the sights, the treasures of the eye 
Does the divided soul remain the same? 
No equation to explain 
Destiny's hand 
Moved, by love 
Drawn by the whispering shadows 
Into the mathematics 
Of our desire

Jailhouse Rock
Original Artist: Elvis Presley

The warden threw a party in the county jail
The prison band was there and they began to wail
The band was jumpin' and the joint began to swing
You should've heard those knocked out jailbirds sing

Let's rock, everybody, let's rock
Everybody in the whole cell block 
Was dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock

Spider Murphy played the tenor saxophone,
Little Joe was blowin' on the slide trombone
The drummer boy from Illinois went crash, boom, bang,
The whole rhythm section was the Purple Gang

Number forty-seven said to number three,
"You're the cutest jailbird I ever did see
I sure would be delighted with your company,
Come on and do the Jailhouse Rock with me"

The sad sack was a sittin' on a block of stone
Way over in the corner weepin' all alone
The warden said, "Hey, buddy, don't you be no square
If you can't find a partner use a wooden chair"

Shifty Henry said to Bugs, "For Heaven's sake,
no one's lookin', now's our chance to make a break"
Bugsy turned to Shifty and he said, "Nix nix,
I wanna stick around a while and get my kicks"

Keep your Hands To Yourself
Original Artist: Georgia Satellites

I got a little change in my pocket
Going jingle lingle ling
Want to call you on the telephone baby
I give you a ring
But each time we talk
I get the same old thing
Always no huggy no kissy until I get a wedding ring
My honey my baby
Don't put my love upon no shelf
She said, "Don't give no lines
And keep your hands to yourself"

Cruel baby baby baby
Why you want to treat me this way?
You know I'm still your lover boy
I still feel the same way
That's when she told me a story
'Bout free milk and a cow
And she said no huggy no kissy until I get a wedding vow
My honey my baby
Don't put my love upon no shelf
She said, "Don't hand me no lines
And keep your hands to yourself"

You see I wanted her real bad
And I was about to give in
That's when she started talkin' true love
Started talkin' about sin
I said, "Honey I'll live with you for the rest of my life."
She said, "No huggy no kissy until you make me your wife."
My honey my baby
Don't put my love on no shelf
She don't hand me no lines
And keep your hands to yourself

Lady Is A Tramp
Original Artists: Frank Sinatra

She gets too hungry, for dinner at eight
She loves the theater, but doesn't come late
She'd never bother, with people she'd hate
That's why the lady is a tramp

Doesn't like crap games, with barons and earls
Won't go to Harlem, in ermine and pearls
Won't dish the dirt, with the rest of those girls
That's why the lady is a tramp

She loves the free, fresh wind in her hair
Life without care
She's broke, but it's o'k
She hates California, it's cold and it's damp
That's why the lady is a tramp

Doesn't like dice games, with sharpies and frauds
Won't go to Harlem, in Lincolns or Fords
Won't dish the dirt, with the rest of those broads
That's why the lady is a tramp

Lean On Me
Original Artist: 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 
'Til I'm gonna need 
Somebody to lean on 

Please, swallow your pride 
If I have things 
You need to borrow 
For no one can fill 
Those of your needs 
That you don't let show 

Lean on me, 
When you're not strong 
And I'll be your friend 
I'll help you carry on 
For it won't be long 
'Til I'm gonna need 
Somebody to lean on 

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 

So 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'd understand 
We all need somebody to lean on 

Lean on me, 
When you're not strong 
And I'll be your friend 
I'll help you carry on 
For it won't be long 
'Til I'm gonna need 
Somebody to lean on 

Lean on me... 

Let's Go For A Ride
Original Artists: Cracker

Oh yeah I feel alright tonight, 
Oh man the stars are bright tonight, 
Like we could reach right out 
and help yourself to them

'Cause we want and what we need 
will one day bring us to our knees
Well, I am over it
You know that I have accepted it

Let's go for a ride
Let's go for a ride
Let's go for a ride
Go for a ride

So, drive real fast through the underpass 
And if we die or if we crash, 
Well I'd be flattered to 
Be buried right next to you

Cause what's yours is yours 
And what's mine is mine 
In the summertime 
Under the blackened sky 
The world belongs to us 
Baby lets use it up

Lola
Original Artist: Barry Manilow

I met her in a club down in North Soho
Where you drink champagne and it tastes just like Coca Cola
C-O-L-A Cola

She walked up to me and she asked me to dance
I asked her her name and in a dark brown voice she said, "Lola"
L-O-L-A Lola
Lo lo lo Lola

Well, I'm not the world's most physical guy,
But when she squeezed me tight she nearly broke my spine
Oh my Lola
Lo lo lo Lola
Lo lo lo Lola

Well, I'm not dumb but I can't understand
Why she walks like a woman and talks like a man
Oh my Lola
Lo lo lo Lola
Lo lo lo Lola

Well, we drank champagne and danced all night,
Under electric candlelight,
She picked me up and sat me on her knee,
She said, "Little boy won't you come home with me?"

Well, I'm not the world's most passionate guy,
But when I looked in her eyes,
I almost fell for my Lola,
Lo lo lo Lola
Lo lo lo Lola

I pushed her away
I walked to the door
I fell to the floor
I got down on my knees
I looked at her, and she at me

Well that's the way that I want it to stay
I always want it to be that way for my Lola
Lo lo lo Lola.

Girls will be boys, and boys will be girls
It's a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world
Except for Lola
Lo lo lo Lola
Lo lo lo Lola

Well I left how just a week before,
And I never ever kissed a woman before,
Lola smiled and took me by the hand,
She said, "Little boy, gonna make you a man."

Well I'm not the world's most masculine man,
But I know what I am and that I'm a man,
So is Lola
Lo lo lo Lola
Lo lo lo Lola

Long Train Runnin'
Original Artists: The Doobie Brothers

Down around the corner, half a mile from here
See them groceries running, and you watch them disappear
Without love, where would you be now

You know I saw Miss Lucy down along the tracks
She lost her home and her family and she won't be coming back
Without love, where would you be right now

Well the healing's always central
In a southern central freight
You got to keep on pushing mama
I know they're running late
Without love, where would you be now na na now

Well the healing's always central
In a southern central freight
You got to keep on pushing mama
You know they're running late
Without love, where would you be now

Well distance keep on turning
and the wheels go round and round
and the steel reels are cooling hard
and the mountain ain't going down
Without love, where would you be right now
Where would you be now

Oh you got to get the baby thing
I want to move it down
I want to move it down
Baby baby baby babe oh won't you move it down
There's a big train running
With the train I'm moving on
I got to keep on moving, keep on moving
I got to keep on moving, I'm going to keep on moving

Love The One You're With
Original Artists: Crosby, Stills, Young and Nash

If you're down and confused
And you don't remember who you're talking to
Concentration slip away
Cause your baby is so far away

Don't be angry, don't be sad
Don't sit cryin' over good things you've had
There's a girl right next to you
And she's just waiting for something you do

Well, there's a rose in a fisted glove
And the eagle flies with the dove
And if you can't be with the one you love
Love the one you're with
Love the one you're with

Turn your heartache right into joy
She's a girl, you're a boy
Get it together make it nice
Ain't gonna need anymore advice

Mandy
Original Artist: Barry Manilow

I remember all my life
Raining down as cold as ice
A shadow of a man
A face through a window
Crying in the night
The night goes into Morning, just another day
Happy people pass my way
Looking in their eyes I see a memory
I never realized
How happy you made me, oh Mandy
Well you came and you gave without taking
And I sent you away, oh Mandy
And you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I need you today, oh Mandy
I'm standing on the edge of time
Walked away when love was mine
Caught up in a world of uphill climbing
The tears are in my eyes
And nothing is rhyming, oh Mandy
Well you came and you gave without taking
And I sent you away, oh Mandy
And you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I need you today, oh Mandy Yesterday's a dream
Now I face the morning
Crying on the breeze
The pain is calling, oh Mandy
Well you came and you gave without taking
And I sent you away, oh Mandy
And you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I need you today, oh Mandy
Well you came and you gave without taking
And I sent you away, oh Mandy
And you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I need you today, oh Mandy

Memphis In The Meantime
Original Artist: John Hiatt

I got something to say little girl 
You might not like my style 
But we've been hanging around this town 
Just a little too long a while 
  
You say you're gonna get your act together 
Gonna take it out on the road 
But if I dont get outta here pretty soon 
My head's going to explode 
  
Sure I like country music 
I like mandolins 
But right now I need a telecaster 
Through a vibro-lux turned up to ten 
  
Lets go to Memphis in the meantime baby 
Memphis in the meantime girl 
  
I need a little shot of that rhythm baby 
Mixed up with these country blues 
I wanna trade in these ol country boots 
For some fine Italian shoes 
  
Forget the mousse and the hairspray sugar 
We dont need none of that 
Just a little dab'll do ya girl 
Underneath a pork pie hat 
  
Until hell freezes over 
Maybe you can wait that long 
But I dont think Ronnie Milsap's gonna ever 
Record this song 
 
Maybe there's nothin' happenin' there 
Maybe there's somethin' in the air 
Before our upper lips get stiff 
Maybe we need us a big ol whiff 
  
If we could just get off-a that beat little girl 
Maybe we could find the groove 
At least we can get a decent meal 
Down at the Rendez-vous 
  
'Cause one more heartfelt steel guitar chord 
Girl, it's gonna do me in 
I need to hear some trumpet and saxophone 
You know sound as sweet as sin 
  
And after we get good and greasy 
Baby we can come back home 
Put the cowhorns back on the cadillac 
And change the message on the cord-a-phone 
  
But...   

MLK
Original Artists: U2

Sleep, sleep tonight
And may your dreams 
Be realized 
If the thunder cloud 
Passes rain
So let it rain, rain down him
So let it be

Sleep, sleep tonight 
And may your dreams be realized
If the thundercloud passes rain,
So let it rain
Let it rain, rain on him

My Best Friend's Girl
Original Artists: The Cars

You're always dancing down the street
With your suede blue eyes
And every new boy that you meet
He doesn't know the real surprise
Here she comes again
When she's dancing 'neath the starry sky
She'll make you flip
Here she comes again
When she's dancing 'neath the starry sky
You kinda like the way she dips
She's my best friend's girl
She's my best friend's girl
And she used to be mine
You've got your nuclear boots
And your drip dry glove
And when you bite your lip
It's some reaction to love

Nightingale Song
Original Artists: Toad the Wet Sprocket

We sing the nightingale song alive
Streets never border further than my sight
We sing the nightingale song alive
Se might be different but our hearts won't lie

And little ever changes if anything at all
But the song rings loudly through these halls

We sing the nightingale song alive
We might be different but our hearts won't lie

And little ever changes when you view it from the sky
And the damage we encounter the earth just passes by
And little ever changes if anything at all
And we remind ourselves how small we are

Not Fade Away
Original Artists: The Grateful Dead

I wanna tell you it's gonna be
You're gonna give your love to me
I wanna love you night and day
You know our lovin' not fade away
You know our lovin' not fade away
Not fade away

My love is bigger than a Cadillac
I try to show you but you drive me back
Your love for me has gotta be real
For you to know just how I feel
'Cause a love that's real not fade away
Not fade away

Nothing Is Alone
Original Artists: Toad the Wet Sprocket

Something rushes over me
And I find myself standing here
Lift my eyes up to the sky
And offer a silent prayer

Sometime all the shouting stops
And the restlessness loses hold
And I cry out to everything
That nothing is alone

If the winter won't turn me
Then the summer can't burn me
And the rain will never
Fall upon a restless soul
Nothing is alone

Party Girl
Original Artists: U2

I know a girl, a girl called Party
Party Girl
I know she wants more than a party
Party Girl
And she won't tell me her name

I know a boy, a boy called Trash
Trash Can
I know he does all that he can
Wham Bam !
And he won't tell me his name

I have a heart, a heart that beats inside
When I was three, I thought the world revolved around me
I was wrong
And so I sing now
And if you dance, then dance with me

I know a girl, a girl called Party
Party Girl
I know she wants more than a party
Party Girl

I know a boy, a boy called Trampoline
You know what I mean
I think I know what he wants
I think he knows what he wants
I think she knows what he wants
I think I know what he wants....

Peace, Love and Understanding
Original Artist: Nick Lowe

As I walk through 
This wicked world 
Searchin' for light in the darkness of insanity
I ask myself 
Is all hope lost? 
Is there only pain and hatred, and misery? 
And each time I feel like this inside
There's one thing I wanna know
What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding? 
What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding? 

And as I walk on 
Through troubled times 
My spirit gets so downhearted sometimes 
So where are the strong 
And who are the trusted? 
And where is the harmony? 
Sweet harmony

'Cause each time I feel it slippin' away
Just makes me wanna cry
What's so funny 'bout peace love and understanding? 
What's so funny 'bout peace love and understanding? 

So where are the strong? 
And who are the trusted? 
And where is the harmony? 
Sweet harmony. 

'Cause each time I feel it slippin' away
Just makes me wanna cry. 
What's so funny 'bout peace love and understanding? 
What's so funny 'bout peace love and understanding? 
What's so funny 'bout peace love and understanding? 

Pink Houses
Original Artist: John Cougar Mellencamp

There's a black man with a black cat livin' in a black neighborhood
He's got an interstate runnin' through his front yard
You know he thinks that he's got it so good
And there's a woman in the kitchen cleanin' up the evenin' slop
And he looks at her and says,
"Hey darlin', I can remember when you could stop a clock."

Oh but ain't that America for you and me
Ain't that America somethin' to see baby 
Ain't that America home of the free
Little pink houses for you and me

There's a young man in a t-shirt
Listenin' to a rockin' rollin' station
He's got greasy hair, greasy smile
He says, "Lord this must be my destination."
'Cause they told me when I was younger
"Boy you're gonna be president."
But just like everything else those old crazy dreams
Just kinda came and went

Well there's people and more people
What do they know know know
Go to work in some high rise
And vacation down at the Gulf of Mexico
Ooh yeah
And ther's winners and there's losers
But they ain't no big deal
'Cause the simple man baby pays for the thrills, the bills, the pills that kill

Raspberry Beret
Original Artist: Prince

Yeah

I was working part time in a five-and-dime
My boss was Mr. McGee
He told me several times that he didn't like my kind
Cuz I was a bit too leisurely

Seems that I was busy doing something close to nothing
But different than the day before
That's when I saw her, Ooh, I saw her 
She walked in through the out door, out door

She wore a
Raspberry beret
The kind you find in a second hand store
Raspberry beret
And if it was warm she wouldn't wear much more
Raspberry beret
I think I love her

Built like she was
She had the nerve to ask me
If I planned to do her any harm

So, look here
I put her on the back of my bike
And-a we went riding
Down by old man Johnson's farm

I said now, overcast days never turned me on
But something about the clouds and her mixed

She wasn't too bright
But I could tell when she kissed me
She knew how to get her kicks

She wore a 
Raspberry beret
The kind you find in a second hand store
Raspberry beret
And if it was warm she wouldn't wear much more
Raspberry beret
I think I love her

The rain sounds so cool when it hits the barn roof
And the horses wonder who you are
Thunder drowns out what the lightning sees
You feel like a movie star

Listen
They say the first time ain't the greatest
But I tell ya
If I had the chance to do it all again

I wouldn't change a stroke
Cuz baby I'm the most
With a girl as fine as she was then


Raspberry beret
The kind you find
The kind you find
In a second hand store
Oh no no
Raspberry beret
And if it was warm
Where have all the raspberry women gone?
She wouldn't wear much more
Yeah
Raspberry beret

I think I... I think I... I think I love her

Raspberry beret
No No No
No No No
The kind you find
In a second hand store
Raspberry beret
Tell me
Where have all the raspberry women gone?
And if it was warm she
Wouldn't wear much more
Raspberry beret
I think I love... 

Rosealita
Original Artist: Bruce Springsteen

Spread out now Rosie doctor come cut loose her mama's reins 
You know playin' blind man's bluff is a little baby's game 
You pick up Little Dynamite I'm gonna pick up Little Gun 
And together we're gonna go out tonight and make that highway run 
You don't have to call me lieutenant Rosie and I don't want to be your son 
The only lover I'm ever gonna need's your soft sweet little girl's tongue
And Rosie you're the one 
Dynamite's in the belfry playin' with the bats 
Little Gun's downtown in front of Woolworth's
Tryin' out his attitude on all the cats 
Papa's on the corner waitin' for the bus 
Mama she's home in the window waitin' up for us 
She'll be there in that chair when they wrestle her upstairs
'Cause you know we ain't gonna come 
I ain't here on business 
I'm only here for fun 

Rosalita jump a little lighter 
Seņorita come sit by my fire 
I just want to be your lover ain't no liar 
Rosalita you're my stone desire 

Jack the Rabbit and Weak Knees Willie you know they're gonna be there 
Ah Sloppy Sue and Big Bones Billy they'll be comin' up for air 
We're gonna play some pool skip some school act real cool 
Stay out all night it's gonna feel all right 
Rosie come out tonight Rosie come out tonight 
Windows are for cheaters chimneys for the poor 
Closets are for hangers winners use the door 

Rosalita jump a little lighter 
Seņorita come sit by my fire 
I just want to be your lover ain't no liar 
Rosalita you're my stone desire 

Now I know your mama she don't like me
'Cause I play in a rock and roll band 
And I know your daddy he don't dig me but he never did understand 
Papa lowered the boom he locked you in your room 
I'm comin' to lend a hand 
I'm comin' to liberate you confiscate you I want to be your man 
Someday we'll look back on this and it will all seem funny 
But now you're sad your mama's mad 
And your papa says he knows that I don't have any money 
Tell him this is his last chance to get his daughter in a fine romance 
Because a record company Rosie just gave me big bucks 

My tires were slashed and I almost crashed but the Lord had mercy 
My machine
She's a dud out stuck in the mud somewhere in the swamps of Jersey 
Hold on tight stay up all night 'cause Rosie I'm comin' on strong 
By the time we meet the morning light I will hold you in my arms 
I know a pretty little place in Southern California down San Diego way 
There's a little cafe where they play guitars all night and day 
You can hear them in the back room strummin' 
So hold tight baby 'cause don't you know daddy's comin' 

Rosalita jump a little lighter 
Seņorita come sit by my fire 
I just want to be your lover ain't no liar 
Rosalita you're my stone desire

Running to Stand Still
Original Artists: U2

And so she woke up
Woke up from where she was
Lying still
Said I gotta do something 
About where we're going

Step on a steam train
Step out of the driving rain, maybe
Run from the darkness in the night
Singing... ha la la la de day
Ha la la la de day
Ha la la de day

Sweet the sin
Bitter taste in my mouth
I see seven towers
But I only see one way out

You got to cry without weeping
Talk without speaking
Scream without raising your voice

You know I took the poison
From the poison stream
Then I floated out of here
Singing... ha la la la de day
Ha la la la de day
Ha la la de day

She runs through the streets
With her eyes painted red
Under black belly of cloud in the rain
In through a doorway she brings me
White gold and pearls stolen from the sea
She is raging
She is raging
And the storm blows up in her eyes
She will...

Suffer the needle chill
She is running to stand
Still

She Talks To Angels
Original Artists: The Black Crowes

She never mentions the word addiction
In certain company
Yes, she'll tell you she's an orphan
After you meet her family

She paints her eyes as black as night now
She pulls those shades down tight
She gives a smile when the pain comes
The pain gonna make everything alright

Says she talks to angels
They call her out by her name
Oh yeah, she talks to angels
Says they call her out by her name

She keeps a lock of hair in her pocket
She wears a cross around her neck
Yes the hair is from a little boy
And the cross from someone she has not met
Not yet

She don't know no lovers
None that I've ever seen
And to her that means nothing
But to me it means, means everything

She paints her eyes as black as night now
She pulls those shades down tight
She gives a smile when the pain comes
The pain gonna make everything alright

Sitting on the Dock of the Bay
Original Artist: Otis Redding

Sittin in the morning sun
I'll be sittin' when the evening come
Watching the ships roll in
And I'll watch 'em roll away again, yeah
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away, ouh
I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wasting time

I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the Frisco bay
I have nothing to live for
Look like nothings gonna come my way

So I'm just go sit on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wasting time 

Look like nothings gonna change
Everything still remain the same
I can't do what ten people tell me to do
So I guess I'll remain the same, yes

Sittin' here resting my bones
And this loneliness won't leave me alone, yes
Two thousand miles I roam
Just to make this dock my home 

Now I'm just go sit at the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away, ooh
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wasting time

So Lonely
Original Artists: The Police

Well someone told me yesterday
That when you throw your love away
You act as if you don't care
You look as if you're going somewhere

But I just can't convince myself
I couldn't live with no one else
And I can only play that part
And sit and nurse my broken heart

So lonely (x12)

Now no one's knocked upon my door
For a thousand years or more
All made up and nowhere to go
Welcome to this one man show

Just take a seat they're always free
No surprise no mystery
In this theatre that I call my soul
I always play the starring role 

So lonely (x19)

Lonely, I'm so lonely
I feel so alone
I feel low
I feel so 
Feel so low
I feel low, low

I feel low, low, low (x5)

Low, I feel low

I feel low (x2)
I feel so lonely (x2)
I feel so lonely, lonely, lonely, lone
Lonely, lone
I feel so alone, yeah

So lonely...

Original Artists: Bob Marley & the Wailers

Let's stir it up
Stir it up, little darlin'
Stir it up
Yaga, yaga.
Little darlin', stir it up
Little darlin'

Tainted Love
Original Artists: Soft Cell

Sometimes I feel I've got to
Run away
I've got to
Get away
From the pain you drive into the heart of me
The love we shared
Seems to go nowhere
And I've lost my light
For I toss and turn
I can't sleep at night

Once I ran to you
Now I run from you
This tainted love you've given
I give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all...

Tainted love
Tainted love
Now I know I've got to run away
I've got to get away
You don't really want anymore from me
To make things right
You need someone to hold you tight
And you think that love is to pray
But I'm sorry I don't parade that way

Once I ran to you
Now I run from you
This tainted love you've given
I give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all...

Tainted love
Tainted love
Don't touch me please
I can't stand the way you tease
I love you though you hurt me so
Now I'm gonna pack my things and go

Touch me baby, tainted love
Touch me baby, tainted love

Take Me Out To The Ball Game
Original Artists: ???

Take me out to the ball game
Take me out to the crowd
Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jacks
I don't care if I ever get back
For it's root, root root for the home team
If they don't win it's a shame
For it's one... two... three strikes you're out
At the old ball game

Take My Hand
Original Artists: 54-40

I'm thinking in circles
Don't know where to turn
All messed up are my signals
Go nothing left to burn

Take my hand 
Take my hand
Take my hand

If you hold me I won't ever let you fall down
If I hold you I have to face that wall not now
I need you you're my witness
To all I have seen
What I'm going to do with this is 
Set people free
Come on now

And we'll go running
We'll go running
We'll go running running away
I'm gonna run away take my hand

The Ballad Of John & Yoko
Original Artists: The Beatles

Standing in the dock at Southampton
Trying to get to Holland or France
The man in the mac said, "You've got to turn back"
You know they didn't even give us a chance
Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me

Finally made the plane into Paris
Honey mooning down by the Seine
Peter Brown called to say
"You can make it O.K.
You can get married in Gibraltar, near Spain"
Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me

Drove from Paris to the Amsterdam Hilton
Talking in our beds for a week
The newspapers said, "Say what you doing in bed?"
I said, "We're only trying to get us some peace"
Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me

Saving up your money for a rainy day
Giving all your clothes to charity
Last night the wife said
"Oh boy, when you're dead
You don't take nothing with you
But your soul - think!"
Made a lightning trip to Vienna
eating chocolate cake in a bag
The newspapers said, "She's gone to his head,
They look just like two gurus in drag"
Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me

Caught an early plane back to London
Fifty acorns tied in a sack
The men from the press said, "We wish you success,
It's good to have the both of you back"
Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me

The way things are going
They're going to crucify me

The Midnight Special
Original Artists: Credence Clearwater Revival

Well, you wake up in the mornin', you hear the work bell ring
And they march you to the table to see the same old thing
Ain't no food upon the table, and no pork up in the pan
But you better not complain, boy, you get in trouble with the man

Let the midnight special shine a light on me
Let the midnight special shine a light on me
Let the midnight special shine a light on me
Let the midnight special shine a everlovin' light on me.

Yonder come miss Rosie, how in the world did you know?
By the way she wears her apron, and the clothes she wore
Umbrella on her shoulder, piece of paper in her hand
She come to see the gov'nor, she wants to free her man

If you're ever in Houston, well, you better do the right
You better not gamble, there, you better not fight, at all
Or the sheriff will grab ya and the boys will bring you down
The next thing you know, boy, Oh! You're prison bound

Torn
Original Artists: Toad the Wet Sprocket

I fear nothing
Besides myself
Please don't touch me
Love like an infant trying to stand up

Am I two souls
One hard, one whole
Am I real
I don't want to feel anything
Anymore

I feel nothing
Besides this pain
Please don't watch me
Love like an infant
Scared and crawling

Walk on the Ocean
Original Artists: Toad the Wet Sprocket

We spotted the ocean at the head of the trail
Where are we going, so far away
And somebody told me that this is the place
Where everything's better, everything's safe

Walk on the ocean
Step on the stones
Flesh becomes water
Wood becomes bone

And half and hour later we packed up our things
We said we'd send letters and all those little things
And they knew we were lying but they smiled just the same
It seemed they'd already forgotten we'd came
 
Now we're back at the homestead
Where the air makes you choke
And people don't know you
And trust is a joke
We don't even have pictures
Just memories to hold
That grow sweeter each season
As we slowly grow old

Walk This Way
Original Artists: Aerosmith with Run DMC

Backstroke lover always hidin' 'neath the cover
Still I talked to your daddy he say
He said you ain't seen noting
Till you're down on a muffin
Then you're sure to be a-changin' your ways
I met a cheerleader, was a real young bleeder
All the times I can remaniesse
'Cause the best thing lovin'
With her sister and her cousin
Only started with a little kiss, like this!

See-saw swingin' with the boys in the school
And your feet flyin' up in the air
Singin' hey diddle-diddle with the kitty in the middle
You be swingin' like you just didn't care
So I took a big chance at the high school dance
With a missy who was ready to play
Was it me she was foolin'
'Cause she knew what she was doin'
And I know love was here to stay
When she told me to
Walk this way, walk this way
Walk this way, walk this way
Walk this way, walk this way
Walk this way, walk this way
Ah, just give me a kiss - like this!

School girl Sadie with the classy kinda sassy
Little skirt climbing way up her knees
There was three young ladies in the school gym locker
When I noticed they was lookin' at me
I was a high school loser
Never made it with a lady
Till the boys told me something I missed
Then my next door neighbour
With a daughter had a favour
So I gave her just a little kiss, like this!

See-saw swingin' with the boys in the school
And your feet flyin' up in the air
Singin' hey diddle-diddle with the kitty in the middle
You be swingin' like you just didn't care
So I took a big chance at the high school dance
With a missy who was ready to play
Was it me she was foolin'
'Cause she knew what she was doin'
When she told me how to walk this way

She told me to
Walk this way, talk this way
Walk this way, walk this way
Walk this way, walk this way
Walk this way, talk this way
Just give me a kiss - like this!

War
Original Artists: Bob Marley and the Wailers

Until the philosophy which hold one race superior
And another
Inferior
Is finally
And permanently
Discredited
And abandoned -
Everywhere is war -
Me say war.

That until there no longer
First class and second class citizens of any nation
Until the colour of a man's skin
Is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes -
Me say war.

That until the basic human rights
Are equally guaranteed to all,
Without regard to race -
Dis a war.

That until that day
The dream of lasting peace,
World citizenship
Rule of international morality
Will remain in but a fleeting illusion to be pursued,
But never attained -
Now everywhere is war - war.

And until the ignoble and unhappy regimes that hold our brothers in Angola,
In Mozambique,
South Africa
Sub-human bondage
Have been toppled,
Utterly destroyed -
Well, everywhere is war -
Me say war.

War in the east,
War in the west,
War up north,
War down south -
War - war -
Rumours of war.
And until that day,
The African continent
Will not know peace,
We Africans will fight - we find it necessary  -
And we know we shall win
As we are confident
In the victory

Of good over evil -
Good over evil, yeah!
Good over evil -
Good over evil, yeah!
Good over evil -
Good over evil, yeah!

Will The Circle Be Unbroken

I was standing by my window
On a cold and cloudy day
When I saw the hearse come rolling
For to take my love away

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by Lord, by and by
There's a better home awaiting
In the sky Lord, in the sky

I told the undertaker,
"Undertaker, please drive slow
For this body you are haulin' Lord
I hate to see him go."

Well I followed close behind him
Tried to hold up and be brave
But I could not hide my sorrow
When they laid him in the grave

You Make Me Wanna
Original Artist: Usher

This is what you do
This is what you do 
This is what you do

You make me wanna leave the one I'm with
Start a new relationship with you
This is what you do
Think about her and the things that come along with
You make me 

Before anything began between us
You were like my bestfriend
The one I used to run to when me and my
Girl was having problems
You used to say it would be okay
Suggest little nice things I should do
And when I come home at night and lay my head down
All I seem to think about is you
And how you make me wanna

Now what's bad
Is you're the one that hooked us up
Knowing it should've been you
What's sad is I love her but I'm falling for you
What should I do
Should I
Tell my baby bye-bye
Should I
Do exactly what I feel inside 
Cause I
I don't wanna go
Don't need to stay 
But I really need to get it together

At this point 
The situation's out of control
I never meant to hurt her but I
Gotta let her go
And if she may not understand it
Why all of this is going on 
I tried 
I tried to fight it but the feelings just to strong

You make me wanna wanna
You make me wanna

You Never Even Called Me By My Name
Original Artist: David Allan Coe

Well, it was all
That I could do to keep from cryin'
Sometimes it seemed so useless to remain
But you don't have to call me darlin', darlin'
You never even call me by my name

You don't have to call me Waylon Jennings
And you don't have to call me Charlie Pride
And you don't have to call me Merle Haggard, anymore
Even though you're on my fightin' side

And I'll hang around as long as you will let me
And I never minded standin' in the rain
But you don't have to call me darlin', darlin'
You never even called me by my name

Well, I've heard my name
A few times in your phone book
And I've seen it on signs where I've played
But the only time I know
I'll hear "David Allan Coe"
Is when Jesus has his final judgment day

Well, a friend of mine named Steve Goodman wrote that song
And he told me it was the perfect country & western song
I wrote him back a letter
And I told him it was not the perfect country and western song
Because he hadn't said anything at all about mama,
Or trains,
Or trucks,
Or prison, 
Or gettin' drunk
Well he sat down and wrote another verse to the song
And he sent it to me, 
And after reading it,
I realized that my friend had written the perfect
Country & western song
And I felt obliged to include it on this album
The last verse goes like this here:

Well, I was drunk the day my mom got out of prison
And I went to pick her up in the rain
But before I could get to the station in my pickup truck
She got runned over by a damned old train

And I'll hang around as long as you will let me
And I never minded standin' in the rain
No, a' you don't have to call me darlin', darlin'
You never even call me
Well I wonder why you don't call me
Why don't you ever call me by my name

Ziggy Stardust
Original Artist: David Bowie

Ziggy played guitar
Jamming good with Weird and Gilly
The spiders from Mars
He played it left hand
But made it too far became the special man
Then we were Ziggy's band
Ziggy really sang
Screwed up eyes and screwed
Down hairdo Like some cat from Japan
He could lick 'em by smiling
He could leave them to hang
Came on so loaded man
Well hung and snow white tan
So where were the spiders while the fly tried to break our balls
Just a beer light to guide us
So we bitched about his fans and should we crush his sweet hands?
Ziggy played for time
Jiving us that we was voodoo
The kids was just crass
He was the nazz
With God given ass
He took it all too far
But boy could he play guitar
Making love with his ego
Ziggy sucked up into his mind
Like a leper messiah
When the kids had killed the man I had to break up the band
Ziggy played guitar
