069a-ANOTHER SATURDAY NIGHT – Fa M

Cat Stevens

 

Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody
I've got some money 'cause I just got paid
Now, how I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in an awful way

I got in town a month ago
I seen a lot of girls since then
If I could meet 'em I could get 'em
But as yet I haven't met 'em
That's how I'm in the state I'm in

Oh,
Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody
I've got some money 'cause I just got paid
Now, how I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in an awful way


Another fella told me
He had a sister who looked just fine
Instead of bein' my deliv'rance
She had a strange resemblance
To a cat named Frankenstein

 

Ooh, la,
Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody
I've got some money 'cause I just got paid
Now, how I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in an awful way


It's hard on a fella
When he don't know his way around
If I don't find me a honey
To help me spend my money
I'm gonna have to blow this town

Oh, no
Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody
I've got some money 'cause I just got paid
Now, how I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in an awful way

069b-FATHER & SON  - Sol M

Cat Stevens

 

Father

 
It's not time to make a change,
Just relax, take it easy.
You're still young, that's your fault,
There's so much you have to know.
Find a girl, settle down,
If you want you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy.

I was once like you are now,

and I know that it's not easy,
To be calm when you've found

something going on.
But take your time, think a lot,
Why, think of everything you've got.
For you will still be here tomorrow,

but your dreams may not.

Son


How can I try to explain,

when I do he turns away again.
It's always been the same,

same old story.

 

From the moment I could talk

I was ordered to listen.
Now there's a way and I know

that I have to go away.
I know I have to go.

Father


It's not time to make a change,
Just sit down, take it slowly.
You're still young, that's your fault,
There's so much you have to go through.
Find a girl, settle down,
if you want you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy.

Son


All the times that I cried,

keeping all the things I knew inside,
It's hard, but it's harder to ignore it.
If they were right, I'd agree,

but it's them you know not me.
Now there's a way and I know

that I have to go away.


I know I have to go.

070a-MILES FROM NOWHERE – Re M

Cat Stevens

 

Miles from nowhere
I guess I'll take my time
Oh yeah, to reach there

Look up at the mountain
I have to climb
Oh yeah, to reach there

Lord, my body
Has been a good friend
But I won't need it
When I reach the end

Miles from nowhere
Guess I'll take my time
Oh yeah, to reach there
Oh yeah

I creep through the valleys
And I grope through the woods
'Cause I know when I find it my honey
It's gonna make me feel good, yes

 

I love everything
So don't it make you feel sad
'Cause I'll drink to you, my baby
I'll think to that, I'll think to that


Miles from nowhere
Not a soul in sight
Oh yeah, but it's alright

I have my freedom
I can make my own rules
Oh yeah, the ones that I choose

Lord, my body
Has been a good friend
But I won't need it
When I reach the end

I love everything
So don't it make you feel sad
'Cause I'll drink to you, my baby
I'll think to that, yes, I'll think to that

Think to that, oh yeah

Miles from nowhere
Guess I'll take my time
Oh yeah, to reach there…

070b-MOON SHADOW – Re M

Cat Stevens


Yes, I'm bein' followed by a moon shadow
Moon shadow, moon shadow
Leapin' and hoppin' on a moon shadow
Moon shadow, moon shadow

And if I ever lose my hands
Lose my power, lose my land
Oh, if I ever lose my hands
Ooh, I won't have to work no more

And if I ever lose my eyes
If my colors all run dry
Yes, if I ever lose my eyes
Ooh, I won't have to cry no more

Yes, I'm bein' followed by a moon shadow
Moon shadow, moon shadow
Leapin' and hoppin' on a moon shadow
Moon shadow, moon shadow

And if I ever lose my legs
I won't moan and I won't beg
Oh, if I ever lose my legs
Ooh, I won't have to walk no more

 

And if I ever lose my mouth
All my teeth north and south
Yes, if I ever lose my mouth
Ooh, I won't have to talk

"Did it take long to find me?"
I asked the faithful light
"Oh, did it take long to find me
And are you gonna stay the night?"

I'm bein' followed by a moon shadow
Moon shadow, moon shadow
Leapin' und hoppin' on a moon shadow
Moon shadow, moon shadow

Moon shadow, moon shadow
Moon shadow, moon shadow

071a-MORNING HAS BROKEN – Do M

Cat Stevens


Morning has broken

like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken

like the first bird.


Praise for the singing,

praise for the morning
Praise for them springing

fresh from the world.

Sweet the rains new fall,

sunlit from Heaven
Like the first dewfall

on the first grass.


Praise for the sweetness

of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness

where His feet pass.

 

Mine is the sunlight,

mine is the morning
Born of the one light,

Eden saw play


Praise with elation,

praise every morning
God's recreation

of the new day

Morning has broken

like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken

like the first bird


Praise for the singing,

praise for the morning
Praise for them springing

fresh from the world

071b-WILD WORLD – La m

Cat Stevens

 

Now that I've lost everything to you
You say you want to start something new
And it's breaking my heart you're leaving,

baby I'm grieving


But if you want to leave take good care
Hope you have a lot of nice things to wear
But then a lot of nice things turn bad

out there

Oh, baby, baby it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh, baby, baby it's a wild world
I'll always remember you

like a child, girl

You know I've seen a lot of what the world can do
And it's breaking my heart in two
'Cos I never want to see you sad girl.

don't be a bad girl


But if you want to leave take good care
Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
But just remember there's a lot of bad

and beware

 

Oh, baby, baby it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh, baby, baby it's a wild world
I'll always remember you

like a child, girl

(Instrumental)

Baby I love you


But if you want to leave take good care
Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
But just remember there's a lot of bad and beware

Oh, baby, baby it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh, baby, baby it's a wild world
I'll always remember you

like a child, girl

Oh, baby, baby it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh, baby, baby it's a wild world
I'll always remember you

like a child, girl 

072a-PEACE TRAIN – Do M

Cat Stevens


Now I've been happy lately
Thinking about the good things to come
And I believe it could be
Something good has begun

Oh, I've been smiling lately
Dreaming about the world as one
And I believe it could be
Some day it's going to come

'Cause out on the edge of darkness
There rides a peace train
Oh, peace train take this country
Come take me home again

Now I've been smiling lately
Thinking about the good things to come
And I believe it could be
Something good has begun

Oh, peace train sounding louder
Glide on the peace train
Come on the peace train
Yes, peace train holy roller

 

Everyone jump upon the peace train
Come on the peace train
Get your bags together
Go bring your good friends too
'Cause it's getting nearer
It soon will be with you

Now come and join the living
It's not so far from you
And it's getting nearer
Soon it will all be true

Oh, peace train sounding louder
Glide on the peace train
Come on the peace train
Peace train

Now I've been crying lately
Thinking about the world as it is
Why must we go on hating
Why can't we live in bliss


'Cause out on the edge of darkness
There rides a peace train
Oh, peace train take this country

Come take me home again

072b-SAD LISA – Mi m

Cat Stevens


She hangs her head and cries on my shirt
She must be hurt very badly
Tell me what's making you sadly?


Open your door,

don't hide in the dark
You're lost in the dark, you can trust me
'Cause you know that's how it must be

Lisa, Lisa, sad Lisa, Lisa

Her eyes like windows, tricklin' rain
Upon her pain getting deeper
Though my love wants to relieve her


She walks alone

from wall to wall
Lost in a hall, she can't hear me
Though I know she likes to be near me

Lisa, Lisa, sad Lisa, Lisa

 

Violin break

 

She sits in a corner by the door
There must be more I can tell her
If she really wants me to help her


I'll do what I can

to show her the way
And maybe one day I will free her
Though I know, no one can see her
Lisa, Lisa, sad Lisa, Lisa

013a-HERE COMES MY BABY – Sol M

Cat Stevens

 

In the midnight moonlight I'll

be walking a long and lonely mile.

And every time I do,

I keep seeing this picture of you.

 

Here's comes my baby, here she comes now,

And it comes as no surprise to me, with another guy.

Here's comes my baby, here she comes now,

Walking with a love, with a love that's all so fine,

Never could be mine, no matter how I try.

 

You never walk alone,

and you're forever talking on the phone.

I've tried to call you names,

but every time it comes out the same.

 

Here's comes my baby, here she comes now,

And it comes as no surprise to me, with another guy.

Here's comes my baby, here she comes now,

Walking with a love, with a love that's all so fine,

Never could be mine, no matter how I try.

 

I'm still waiting for your heart,

'cause I'm sure that some day it's gonna start.

You'll be mine to hold each day,

but 'till then, this is all that I can say.

 

Here's comes my baby, here she comes now,

And it comes as no surprise to me, with another guy.

Here's comes my baby, here she comes now,

Walking with a love, with a love that's all so fine,

Never could be mine, no matter how I try.

 

Here's comes my baby, here she comes now,

And it comes as no surprise to me, with another guy.

013b-KATMANDU – C1 Mi M

Cat Stevens

 

I sit beside the dark

Beneath the mire

Cold grey dusty day

The morning lake

Drinks up the sky

 

Kathmandu I'll soon be seeing you

And your strange bewildering time

Will hold me down

 

Chop me some broken wood

We'll start a fire

White warm light the dawn

And help me see

Old satan's tree

 

Kathmandu I'll soon be touching you

And your strange bewildering time

Will hold me down

 

Pass me my hat and coat

Lock up the cabin

Slow night treat me right

until I go

Be nice to know

 

Kathmandu I'll soon be seeing you

And your strange bewildering time

Will keep me home.

014a-STREETS OF LONDON – Re M

Cat Stevens

 

Have you seen the old man

in the closed down market

kicking up the papers

with his worn out shoes

 

in his eyes you see no pride

hand held loosely by his side

yesterday's paper

telling yesterday's news

 

so how can you tell me

you're lonely

and say for you that the sun don't shine

 

oh let me take you by the hand

and lead you through the streets of london

I'll show you something

to make you change your mind

 

have you seen the old girl

who walks the streets of london

dirt in her hair

and her clothes in rags

she's no time for talking

she just keeps right on walking

carrying her home

in two carrier bags

 

so how can you tell me

you're lonely

and say for you that the sun don't shine

 

oh let me take you by the hand

and lead you through the streets of london

I'll show you something

to make you change your mind

 

in the all night café

 at a quarter past 11

same old man

sitting there on his own

 

looking at the world

over the rim of his teacup

each tea lasts an hour

then he wanders home alone

 

so how can you tell me

you're lonely

and say for you that the sun don't shineoh let me take you by the hand

and lead you through the streets of london

I'll show you something

to make you change your mind

 

 

have you seen the old man

outside the seaman's mission

memory fading with

the medal ribbons that he wears

 

in our winter city

the rain cries little pity

for a long forgotten hero

 in a world that doesn't care

 

oh how can you tell me

you're lonely

and say for you that the sun doesn't shine

 

oh let me take you by the hand

and lead you through the streets of london

I'll show you something

to make you change your mind
