ARETHA FRANKLIN

015a-KILLING ME SOFTLY – C1 La m

Aretha Franklin

 

Strumming my pain with his fingers,

Singing my life with his words,

Killing me softly with his song,

Killing me softly with his song,

Telling my whole life with his words,

Killing me softly with his song

 

I heard he sang a good song,

I heard he had a style

And so I came to see him, to listen for a while

And there he was, this young boy,

a stranger to my eyes

 

Strumming my pain with his fingers,

Singing my life with his words,

Killing me softly with his song,

Killing me softly with his song,

Telling my whole life with his words,

Killing me softly with his song

 

I felt all flushed with fever,

embarrassed by the crowd,

I felt he found my letters

and read each one out loud

 

I prayed that he would finish

but he just kept right on

 

Strumming my pain with his fingers,

Singing my life with his words,

Killing me softly with his song,

Killing me softly with his song,

Telling my whole life with his words,

Killing me softly with his song

 

Strumming my pain with his fingers,

Singing my life with his words,

Killing me softly with his song,

Killing me softly with his song,

Telling my whole life with his words,

Killing me softly with his song.

015b-I WILL SURVIVE  La m

Aretha Franklin

 

First I was afraid, I was petrified

kept thinking I could never live

without you by my side

But then I spent so many nights

thinking in how you did me wrong

and I grew strong

and I learned how to get along

 

And so you're back from outer space

I just walked in to find you here with that

Sad look upon your face

I should have changed that stupid lock

I should have made you leave your key

If I'd had known for just one second

you'd be back to bother me

 

Oh now go, walk out the door

Just turn around now cause

you're not welcome anymore

Weren't you the one

who tried to hurt me with goodbye?

Did you think I'd crumble?

Did you think I'd lay down and die?

 

Oh no not I,  I will survive

Oh as long as I know how to love I know I'll stay alive

I've got all my life to live

and I've got all my love to give

and I'll survive, I will survive

hey hey… (strings)

 

It took all the strength I had not to fall apart

Just trying hard to mend the pieces

of my broken heart

And I spent oh so many nights

just feeling sorry for myself

I used to cry

but now I hold my head up high

 

And you see in me, somebody new

I'm not that chained up little person

still in love with you

And so you felt like dropping in

and just expect me to be free

but now I'm saving all my loving

for someone who's loving me…

 

Oh now go, walk out the door…

 

Oh no not I I will survive…

016b-I SAY A LITTLE PRAYER FOR YOU - Fa# m

Aretha Franklin

 

From the moment i wake up,
before i put on my make-up,
i say a little prayer for you.
while combing my hair now,
and wondering what dress to wear now,
i say a little prayer for you.

Forever and ever, you´ll stay in my heart
and i will love you.
forever and ever, we never will part.
oh, how i love you.
together, forever, that´s how it must be.
to live without you
would only mean heartbreak for me.

i run for the bus, dear,
while riding i think of us, dear,
i say a little prayer for you.
at work i just take time
and all through my coffee-break time,
i say a little prayer for you.

forever and ever, you´ll stay in my heart
and i will love you.
forever and ever, we never will part.

 

oh, how i love you.
together, forever, that´s how it must be.
to live without you
would only mean heartbreak for me.

i say a little prayer for you.
i say a little prayer for you.

my darling, believe me,
for me there is no one but you!
please love me too.
and i´m in love with you.
answer my prayer now, babe.

forever and ever, you´ll stay in my heart
and i will love you.
forever and ever, we never will part.
oh, how i love you.
together, forever, that´s how it must be.
to live without you
would only mean heartbreak for me.

016a-SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW

Aretha Franklin


Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Once in a lullaby ii ii iii

 

Somewhere over the rainbow
Blue birds fly
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Dreams really do come true ooh ooooh

Someday I'll wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me ee ee eeh

 

Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney tops

that’s where you'll find me oh

Somewhere over the rainbow

bluebirds fly
And the dream that you dare to,

why, oh why can't I? i iiii

IT'S RAINING MEN

Aretha Franklin

Humidity is rising
Barometer's getting low
According to our sources
The street's the place to go

Cause' tonight for the first time
Just about half past ten
For the first time in history
It's gonna start raining men

It's raining men
Hallejulah
It's raining men
Amen

It's raining men
Hallejulah
It's raining men
Amen

Humidity is rising
Barometer's getting low
According to our sources
The street's the place to go

Cause' tonight for the first time
Just about half past ten
For the first time in history
It's gonna start rainin men

 

It's raining men
Hallejulah
It's raining men
Amen

I'm gonna go out
I'm gonna let myself get
Absolutley soaking wet

It's rainin men
Hallejulah
It's raining men
Every special men

Tall blonde dark and lean
Rough and tough and strong and mean

God bless Mother Nature
She's a single woman too
She took over heaven
And she did what she had to do

She fought every Angel
To rearranged the sky
So that each and every woman
Could find the perfect guy

It's raining men

Don't get yourself Weather Girls
I know you want to

I feel stormy wheather moving in
About to begin
Hear the thunder
Don't you loose your head
Rip off the roof and stay in bed
(Rip off the roof and stay)

It's raining men
Hallejulah
It's raining men
Amen (X4)
