420a-ANOTHER MAN’S WOMAN – Sib M

Supertramp

 

If there's no way of knowing where's the answer,
You should know if you need me by now,

tell me how.


You saw me in the first place,
Who d'you think I am
How can you be so two-faced
And tell me where I stand


Yeah, we've been here once before,
I see you by the door,
You said you knew and all were calling,


Yeah, you know you just can't lose,
All you have to do is choose,

 let me in on where your heart is.

You ain't nothing but another man's woman,
Living on another man's land;
At night I hear a hound dog callin’,
A callin' me a cheatin' man.

 
I tell you somethin', I need good lovin',

but you don't understand,
At night I see you cannonball comin'

 

To blow me to the promised land.

If there's no-way of showing where your love lies,
Is it me?, is it him?, or no-one;
What will be done?


About the mess you made me,
Oh don't you give a damn,
You're gonna drive me crazy,
It's more than I can stand,


'Round and 'round we always go
First it's yes and then it's no,
Oh whatever keeps me sane?


I'm so helpless, can't you see?
Did you cast a spell on me,
Say you love me please, I'm praying


You ain't nothing but another man's woman,
Living on another man's land;
At night I hear a hound dog callin’,
A callin' me a cheatin' man.

 

(Instrumental   end)

420b-ASYLUM – C1 La M

Supertramp

 

Jimmy Cream was keen,

his brain was always winnin',
I can't keep tabs on mine,

it's really quite a joke


I see him down the road,

I ask if he'd be willing
To lend me 15p –

I'm dying for a smoke

Don't arrange to have me sent to no asylum
I'm just as sane as anyone
It's a just a game I play for fun - for fun.


I told em - look! - I said

 I'm not the way you're thinkin,
Just when I'm down,

I'll be a clown, I'll play the fool.


Please don't arrange

to have me set to no asylum

It's just a game I play for fun - for fun.

 

Will he take a sailboat ride?
He is very likely to,
Will he feel good inside?
He ain't very likely to,
Will he tell you he's alive?
He is always trying to
But nothin', no nothin', does he say

In the morning when the day's begun
- "Hello Good morning, how are you?"
And in the evening or the noonday sun
- "What a lovely afternoon!"
Well I've been living next to you

Bluesy Monday is the one day

that they come here,
When they haunt me and taunt me

 in my cage.


I mock them all, they're feelin' small,

they got no answer
They're playin' dumb but I'm just lauging

as they rage

Don't arrange to have me sent to no asylum
It's only a game I play for fun
I've been foolin' everyone - everyone.
Will he take a sailboat ride?
He is very likely to
Will he feel good inside?
He ain't ever likely to
Will he tell you he's alive?
He is always tryin' to
But nothin', no nothin' does he ever say


In the morning when the day's begun
- "Do you think it looks like rain"?
And in the evening or the noonday sun
- "You know I nearly missed my train"
Well I've been living next to you my friend
But what kind of friend are you?
Is it the beginning or the sorry end?
Will I ever see it through?
I've never been insane Oh what's the game?

I believe I'm dying...He's mad, mad, mad...Not quite right...

421a-BABAJI – C1 Si M

Supertramp

 

All of my life i felt that you were listening
watching for ways to help me stay in tune
lord of my dreams,

although confusion
keeps trying to deceive
what is it that makes me believe

in you?


Babaji, oh won't you come to me
won't you help me face the music
bring it out so we can sing it out
help me to find it before we lose it


at night when the stars are near
and there's no one to keep you from coming here
and there's no one to shield me before your eyes
is it mine, is it mine, is it mine to know?

 

I can see it's not too good to me
to be afloat in the sea of glory

Babaji, oh how you comfort me
by showing me it's a different story


your light in the dark is real
and i know that you know it is how i feel
when i see the reflections that's in your eyes
is it mine, is it mine, is it mine to know?

 

Babaji, have you a song for me
to tell the world of its guardian angel
bring it out so we can sing it out
oh must you always remain a stranger?


at night when the stars are near
and i long for delusion to disappear
the i see the reflection that's in your eyes
is it time, is it time, is it time to know

421b-BLOODY WELL RIGHT – C1 La M

Supertramp

 

So you think your schooling's phoney
i guess it's hard not to agree
you say it all depends on money
and who is in your family tree


Right, you're bloody well right
you know you got a right to say
right, you're bloody well right
you know you got a right to say


Ha-ha you're bloody well right
you know you're right to say
yeah-yeah you're bloody well right
you know you're right to say


me, i don't care anyway!

 

Write your problems down in detail
take them to a higher place
you've had your cry - no, i should say wail
in the meantime hush your face


Right, you're bloody well right
you know you got a right to say
right, you're bloody well right
you know you got a right to say


Ha-ha you're bloody well right
you know you're right to say
yeah-yeah you're bloody well right
you know you're right to say


me, i don't care anyway!

422b-BREAKFAST IN AMERICA – C1 Si m

Supertramp

 

Take a look at my girlfriend
She's the only one I got
Not much of a girlfriend
Never seem to get a lot

Take a jumbo

across the water
Like to see America
See the girls in

California
I'm hoping it's going to come true
But there's not a lot I can do


Could we have kippers for breakfast
Mummy dear, Mummy dear
They got to have 'em in Texas
Cos everyone's a millionaire

 

I'm a winner,

I'm a sinner
Do you want my autograph
I'm a loser,

what a joker
I'm playing my jokes upon you
While there's nothing better to do

Don't you look at my girlfriend
She's the only one I got
Not much of a girlfriend
Never seem to get a lot

Take a jumbo

cross the water
Like to see America
See the girls in

California
I'm hoping it's going to come true
But there's not a lot I can do

423a-BROKEN HEARTED – C1 Si m

Supertramp

 

You make me nervous when you're flying around
the secret service couldn't track you down
you tell me no then you kiss me
you say hello then you ditch me
you try to run when you see me


I never knew what this dream was about
you say let's go then you're lost in the crowd
i don't know where you're going
you won't show then you're showing
i don't know then i'm knowing


*You're always busy when i call on the phone

423b-C’EST LE BON – Sol M

Supertramp

 

I never knew what a man was supposed to be
I never wanted the responsibility
I still remember what they tried to make of me
They used to wonder

 

what they couldn't get through to me,
'Cauce all that I had as this music
A-coming to me
Andall that I had was this rhythm
A-running through me.

I took a tip from the man in the ministry
He said, "My son, better work in the factory"
Well there were days I can tell you quite honestly
I saw myself winding up in the military

So lucky to have all this music
A-coming to me
I'm lucky to have all this rhythm
A-running through me
I'm watching the movie go down
Around, about me
I'm watching the marry-go-round
Go down about me.

 

I said, "Lovers,

you're needed in the garden
'Cauce there's a lot of crazy people
Who've forgotten where their heart is
And they don't give a damn
About hurting those flowers and those trees."

C'est le bon, sailing on and on...
Sometimes I wonder where my life is taking me
Sometimes I wonder what they all expect of me
Well there were days I can tell you quite honestly
I saw myself winding up in the monastery
'Cauce all that I have is this music
A-coming to me
And all that I have is this rhythm
A-running through me
I'm watching the movie go down
Around, about me
I'm watching the marry-go-round
Go down about me.
I said, "Lovers,

you're needed in the garden
'Cauce there's a lot of crazy people
Who've forgotten where their heart is
And they don't give a damn
About hurting that small child in me."
C'est le bon, sailing on and on...

424a-CHILD OF VISION – C1 Sol M

Supertramp

 

Well, who do you think you're foolin'?
You say you're havin' fun,
But you're busy going nowhere,
Just lying in the sun.


You tried to be a hero,
commit the perfect crime
but the dollar got you dancing
and you're running out of time.

You're messin' up the water
You're rolling in the wine
You're poisoning your body
You're poisoning your mind


You gave me Coca-cola
You said it tasted good
You watch the television
It tell you that you should.

How can you live in this way?
You must have something to say.

 

There must be more to this life.
It's time we did something right.
Child of Vision,

won't you listen?

Find yourself a new ambition.

I've heard it all before
You're saying nothing new
I thought I saw a rainbow
But I guess it wasn't true


You cannot make me listen
I cannot make you hear
You find your way to heaven,
I'll meet you when you're there.

How can you live in this way?

You must have something to say.

We have no reason to fight,
cos we both know that we're right.
Child of Vision, won't you listen?
Find yourself a new ambition.

424b-CRAZY – Re m

Supertramp

 

Here´s a little song to make you feel good
put a little light in your day
these are crazy times
and it´s all been getting pretty serious

Oh, yes


Here´s a little song to make you right
send the blues away
well it´s a crazy game
tell me who´s to blame, i´m kind a curious

Oh, yes


Right if you win, wrong if you lose
nobody listens when you´re singing the blues
well something´s the matter
but nothing gets done
oh everyone´s waiting for a place in the sun
well something is wrong now
can something be wrong with me
oh brother, why´s it got to be so crazy

 

Gimme little left, gimme little right
gimme little black, gimme little white
gimme little peace, gimme little hope
gimme little light
´cause you know it seems
that the situation´s getting serious


Right if you win, wrong if you lose
nobody listens when you´re singing the blues
well something´s the matter
but nothing gets done


oh everyone´s waiting for a place in the sun
well something is wrong now
can something be wrong with me
oh brother, why´s it got to be so crazy

 

---SAX BREAK---


Oh, something is wrong with me
oh, brother,

why´s it got to be this crazy

425a-CRIME OF THE CENTURY – Re m

Supertramp

 

Now they're planning

the crime of the century
Well what will it be?


Read all about

their schemes and adventuring
It's well worth a fee


So roll up and see
And they rape the universe
How they've gone from bad to worse


Who are these men

of lust, greed, and glory?
Rip off the masks and let's see.


But that's no right - oh no,

what's the story?
There's you and there's me

 

---guitar & piano long break---


That can't be right

425b-DON’T LEAVE ME NOW – C1 Mi m

Supertramp

 

Don't leave me now
Leave me out in the pouring rain
With my back against the wall
Don't leave me now


Don't leave me now
Leave me out with nowhere to go
And the shadows start to fall
Don't leave me now


Don't leave me now
Leave me out on this lonely road
As the wind begins to howl
Don't leave me now


Don't leave me now
All alone on this darkest night
Feeling old and cold and grey
Don't leave me now

 

Don't leave me now
Leave me holding an empty heart
As the curtain starts to fall
Don't leave me now


Don't leave me now
All alone in this crazy world
When I'm old and cold and grey

and time is gone...

426a-DOWNSTREAM – La M

Supertramp

 

Took a boat Sunday,

down by the sea
It just felt so nice,

you and me


We didn't have a problem

or a care
And all around was silence,

everywhere

You are the reason

I was born
Be with you through all seasons
I'll always hear you when you call


We'll keep the love light shining
Through each night and day
A lonely life behind me
Oh what a change you've made

 

So down here on the ocean

we will stay,

we will stay,

we will stay


Went through a lot of changes
Turned a lot of pages
When I took a boat Sunday

 

---PIANO BREAK---

To know you as I know you now
That is all I need
And we will get along somehow
If we both believe

So down here on the ocean

we will stay,

we will stay,

we will stay


Went through a lot of changes
Turned a lot of pages
When I took a boat Sunday

426b-DREAMER – Re M

Supertramp

 

Dreamer, you know you are a dreamer
Well can you put your hands

in your head, oh no!
I said dreamer, you're nothing but a dreamer
Well can you put your hands

in your head, oh no!


I said "Far out, -

What a day, a year, a laugh it is!"
You know, -

Well you know you had it comin' to you,
Now there's not

a lot I can do

Dreamer, you stupid little dreamer;
So now you put your head in your hands, oh no!


I said "Far out, -

What a day, a year, a laugh it is!"
You know, -

Well you know you had it comin' to you,
Now there's not

a lot I can do.

 

---BREAK---

Well work it out someday

If I could see something
(You can see anything you want boy)
If I could be someone-
(You can be anyone, celebrate boy.)
If I could do something-
(Well you can do something,)
If I could do anything-
Well can you do something out of this world?

Take a dream on a Sunday
Take a life, take a holiday
Take a lie, take a dreamer
dream, dream, dream, dream, dream along...

Dreamer, you know you are a dreamer
Well can you put your hands

in your head, oh no!
I said dreamer, you're nothing but a dreamer
Well can you put your hands

in your head, oh no!


OH NO!

427a-EASY DOES IT – Re M

Supertramp

 

And if my heart's had wings,
I'd be the bird that sings,
I'd fly where love isn't shy
And everyone is willing to try.


And if we had the time,
And time's so hard to find,
I can't believe what you say,
Start sending those shadows away,


And if you know who you are,
You are your own superstar,
And only you can shape

the movie that you make,


So when the lights disappear;
And only the silence disappears,
And only the silence is near,
Watch yourself; easy does it,

easy while you wait.

 

---SYNTH BREAK---

And if you know who you are,
You are your own superstar
And only you can shape

the music that you make.


So when the crowds disappear,
And only the silence is here
Watch yourself, easy does it, easy does it,

easy while you wait.

427b-EVEN IN THE QUIETEST MOMENTS – Sol M

Supertramp

 

Even in the quietest moments
I wish I knew what I had to do
And even though the sun is shining
Well I feel the rain

here it comes again, dear


And even when you showed me
My heart was out of tune
For there's a shadow of doubt

that's not letting me find you too soon


The music that you gave me
The language of my soul
Oh Lord, I want to be with you.
Won't you let me come in from the cold?

 

Don't you let the sun fade away
Don't you let the sun fade away
Don't you let the sun be leaving
Won't you come to me soon

And even though the stars are listening
And the ocean's deep, I just go to sleep
And then I create a silent movie
You become the star,

is that what you are, dear?


Your whisper tells a secret
Your laughter brings me joy
And a wonder of feeling

I'm Nature's own little boy

 

But still the tears keep falling
They're raining from the sky
Well there's a lot of me got to

go under before I get high

Don't you let the sun disappear
Don't you let the sun disappear
Don't you let the sun be leaving
No, you can't be leaving my life


Say that you won't be leaving my life
Say that you won't be leaving my life
Say won't you please, stay won't you please
Say won't you please, stay won't you please

Lord, won't you come and get into my life
Lord, won't you come and get into my life
Say won't you please, stay won't you please
Say won't you please, stay won't you please
Lord, don't go


And even when the song is over
Where have I been

was it just a dream?
And though your door is always open
Where do I begin

may I please come in, dear?

428a-FROM NOW ON – C1 Mi M

Supertramp

 

Monday

has come around again
I'm in the same old place
With the same old faces

always watching me


Who knows

how long I'll have to stay
Could be a hundred years
Of sweat and tears
At the rate that I get paid

Sometimes

I slowly drift away
From all the dull routine
That's with me every day


A fantasy

will come to me


Diamonds

are what I really need
Think I'll rob a store,

escape the law And live in Italy

 

Lately

my luck has been so bad
You know the roulette wheel's
A crooked deal
I'm loosing all I had

Soon be

like a man that's on the run
And live from day to day
Never needing anyone
Play hide and seek
Throughout the week

 

---SYNTH BREAK---

My life is full of romance

Guess I'll always have to be
Living in a fantasy
That's the way it's got to be
From now on


You think I'm crazy I can see
It's you for you, and me for me
Living in a fantasy
From now on

428b-GIVE A LITTLE BIT – Re M

Supertramp

 

Give a little bit
Give a little bit of your love to me
Give a little bit
I'll give a little bit of my love to you


There's so much

that we need to share
Send a smile

and show you care

I'll give a little bit
I'll give a little bit of my love to you
So give a little bit
Give a little bit of your time to me


See the man

with the lonely eyes
Take his hand,

you'll be surprised

 

---SAX BREAK---

Give a little bit
Give a little bit of your love to me
I'll give a little bit of my love for you


Now's the time

that we need to share
So find yourself,

we're on our way back home

Going home
Don't you need to feel at home?
Oh yeah, we gotta sing

429a-GONE HOLLYWOOD – C1 Sol M

Supertramp

 

It's just heartbreaking
I should have known that it would let me down
It's just a mind aching
I used to dream about this town

It was a sight to see
The place to be,
Where the living is easy
And the kicks can always be found

It's such a shame about it
I used to think that it would feel so good
But who's to blame about it
So many creeps in Hollywood

I'm in this dumb motel
Nea the 'Taco Bell'
Without a hope in hell
I can't believe that I'm still around.

Ain't nothin new

 in my life today
Ain't nothing true

it's all gone away

 

I've had too much cryin', seen too much grief
I'm sick of tryin' it's beyond belief
I'm tired of talking on the telephone
They're trying to tell me that they're not at home

Ain't nothing new

in my life today
I'm tired of walking from place to place
I've yet to come across a friendly face
And now the words sound familiar,

as them slam the door
"You're not what we're looking for."

Ain't nothing new ….


If we only had time, only had time for you (3X)

It was a heartbreaking
Now I ride in the big fine car
It was mind aching
I'm the talk of the boulevard
So keep your chin up boy
Forget the pain
I know you'll make it
If you try again
There's no use in quitting
When the world is waiting for you

429b-GOODBYE STRANGER – C1 Sol M

Supertramp

 

It was an early morning yesterday
I was up before the dawn
And I really have enjoyed my stay
But I must be moving on

Like a king without a castle
Like a queen without a throne
I'm an early morning lover
And I must be moving on

Now I believe in what you say
Is the undisputed truth
But I have to have things my own way
To keep me in my youth

*Like a ship without an anchor
Like a slave without a chain
Just the thought of those sweet ladies
Sends a shiver through my veins

*And I will go on shining
Shining like brand new
I'll never look behind me
My troubles will be few

 

Goodbye stranger it's been nice
Hope you find your paradise
Tried to see your point of view
Hope your dreams will all come true


Goodbye Mary, Goodbye Jane
Will we ever meet again
Feel no sorrow, feel no shame
Come tomorrow, feel no pain

Now some they do and some they don't
And some you just can't tell
And some they will and some they won't
With some it's just as well

*You can laugh at my behavior
That'll never bother me
Say the devil is my savior
But I don't pay no heed

*And I will go on shining
Shining like brand new
I'll never look behind me
My troubles will be few


Goodbye stranger it's been nice etc…

430a-HIDE IN YOUR SHELL – C1 La M

Supertramp

 

Hide in your shell

cos’ the world is out to bleed you

for a ride
What will you gain

making your life a little longer?


Heaven or Hell,

was the journey

cold that gave your eyes of steel?
Shelter behind

painting your mind and playing joker.

Too Frightening

to listen to a stranger
Too Beautiful

to put your pride in danger
You're waiting for

someone to understand you


But you've got demons in your closet
And you're screaming out to stop it
Saying life's begun to cheat you
Friends are out to beat you
Grab on to what you scramble for

Too Frightening

to listen to a stranger
Too Beautiful

to put your pride in danger
You're waiting for

someone to understand you

But you've got demons in your closet
And you're screaming out to stop it
Saying life's begun to cheat you
Friends are out to beat you
Grab on to what you scramble for

 

Don't let the tears linger on inside now
Cos’ it's sure time you gained control
If I can help you, if I can help you
If I can help you, just let me know

 

Well, let me show

you the nearest signpost
To get your heartback and on the road
If I can help you, if I can help you
If I can help you, just let me knoooow.

Don't let the tears linger on inside now
Cos’ it's sure time you gained control
If I can help you, if I can help you
If I can help you, just let me know


Well, let me show

you the nearest signpost
To get your heartback and on the road
If I can help you, if I can help you
If I can help you, just let me know.

 

ORGAN

All through the night

as you lie awake

and hold yourself so tight
What do you need,

a second-hand-movie-star

to tend you?

I as a boy,

I believed the saying

the cure for pain was love
How would it be

if you could see the world

through my eyes?

 


... just let me know
I wanna know...
I wanna know you...
Well let me know you
I wanna feel you
I wanna touch you
Please let me near you
Can you hear what I'm saying?
Well I'm hoping, I'm dreamin', I'm prayin'
I know what you're thinkin'
See what you're seein'

431a-THE LOGICAL SONG – C1 Si m

Supertramp

 

When i was young,

it seemed that life was so wonderful,
a miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical.


and all the birds in the trees,

well they'd be singing so happily,
joyfully, playfully watching me.


but then they send me away

to teach me how to be sensible,
logical, responsible, practical.


and they showed me a world

where i could be so dependable,
clinical, intellectual, cynical.


there are times when all the world's asleep,
the questions run too deep
for such a simple man.
won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
i know it sounds absurd
but please tell me who i am.

 

Now watch what you say

or they'll be calling you a radical,
liberal, fanatical, criminal.


won't you sign up your name,

we'd like to feel you're
acceptable, respectable, presentable, a vegetable!

 

Instrumental break


at night, when all the world's asleep,
the questions run so deep
for such a simple man.


won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
i know it sounds absurd
but please tell me who i am.

431b-LONG WAY HOME – C1 Si m

Supertramp

 

So you think you're a Romeo
playing a part in a picture-show
Take the long way home
Take the long way home

Cos you're the joke of the neighborhood
Why should you care if you're feeling good
Take the long way home
Take the long way home


But there are times that you feel

you're part of the scenery
all the greenery

is comin' down, boy
And then your wife seems to think

you're part of the furniture

oh, it's peculiar, she used to be so nice.

When lonely days turn to lonely nights
you take a trip to the city lights
And take the long way home
Take the long way home

You never see what you want to see
Forever playing to the gallery

 

You take the long way home
Take the long way home

And when you're up on the stage,

 it's so unbelievable,
unforgettable,

how they adore you,


But then your wife seems to think

you're losing your sanity,
oh, calamity,

is there no way out?

---SYNTH BREAK---

 

Does it feel that you life's become a catastrophe?
Oh, it has to be for

you to grow, boy.
When you look through the years

and see what you could have been

oh, what might have been,
if you'd had more time.

So, when the day comes to settle down,
Who's to blame if you're not around?
You took the long way home
You took the long way home........…

432a-LOVER BOY – C1 Re M

Supertramp

 

I'll tell you from the start
He's gonna break your heart
You can't stop the lover boy
You can't stop the lover boy

He's gonna tell you lies
But you won't realize
Because you can't stop the lover boy
You can't stop the lover boy

He's got a thing in his head
It's from a book he's read
It's got a funny title,
It tells you how to be vital

 
He took a lot of time
Over every line
Because it's guaranteed
To satisfy

He's gonna knock 'em dead
The boy's got that book read
You can't stop the lover boy
You can't stop the lover boy

 

Right from the clothes he wears
The way he combs his hair
You can't stop him now, because he knows all the tricks
He used to have a problem but he got it fixed


He took a small apartment
Above a shoe department
And he could see from his window
All the lights in the street glow


There's a club on the corner
And tonight he will go there
To find a new affair
So all you ladies beware

He's got to have a good time in the city
He's got to have a good time every night
He's gonna love 'em and leave 'em,

cheat and decieve 'em
He's gonna show 'em who's wrong and who's right

 

He's got to have a good time in the city
He's got to have a good time every night
He's gonna love 'em and leave 'em,

cheat and decieve 'em
He's gonna show 'em who's wrong and who's right

432b-MY KIND OF LADY – La M

Supertramp

 

Let me tell you what i want to say
you're the only one who can make me feel this way

my kind of lady
no better love could i embrace
no better heart, no other face
can quite compare with you
you came along and

then you mend my broken dreams
i was so down and

then as foolish as it seems
you gave me your affection
yeh baby you came through


we'll make it you'll see
in spite of those who say it's wrong
this time we feel that we belong
now we can truly say
we'll be together and that's all we'll ever need
we'll love each other, that's the way it's gonna be
and nothin' under the sun of moon
can make us be apart

 

*oh my honey
you know i'll love you every day
when things go wrong we'll find a way
i'm so glad i met you
much more than i can ever say
(we're making plans and holding hands just like before)
we'll try again, we'll make amends along the road
it's fellin' good, just like it should, this time we know
we'll share each other's happiness

for now and evermore


i've been wastin' my life away
i've got a message for you today
to tell you that you are

my kind of lady
i'm not the same since i met you
all of my dreams had fallen through
and then you came along
one magic night when things went right it was so fine
looked in your eyes and realized that you were mine
and nothin' under the sun of moon
can make us be apart

oh my baby
you know i'll love you all the way…

433a-OH, DARLING – Re M

Supertramp

 

Oh darling,

will you ever change your mind
I've been feeling left behind
Like a shadow in your light

Ah honey

won't you say that I'm the one
And if you think you're gonna run
Well you know
I'm gonna be around you,

all about you
Always by your side
I'm gonna dream about you,

scheme about you
Love you all the time,

Love you all the time
I'm gonna catch you lady
Catch you lady

 

The news is all over town
You better not let me down
Keep telling me you're feeling good
As good as you ever could
Please tell me that you'll never go
Ah ah no no

Ah lately,

I'm like a watch that's overwound
And I've got both feet off the ground
Because you see
I'm gonna be so busy, oh my pretty
Love you night and day
And through the rain and shine
I'll make you mine
I'll love you come what may


I'm gonna catch you lady,

catch you lady
Catch you lady uh huh….

433b-POOR BOY – C1 La M

Supertramp

 

Can you believe me when i say,

there's nothing i like better,
than just to sit here and talk with you.
although i'll rant and i'll rave

about one thing and another
the beauty of it is so pure to me,

 

though, i'm a poor boy,
i can still be happy,
as long as i can feel free.


So many people i know,

get old way too early (well are you feelin' kind of weary)
just to impress you with the money they've made
(you better, you better change your theory)


one drop of rain, they complain,

it's the same about the ways they're earning.
Well, that is not the way i'm gonna be,
don't mind the rain,

don't mind snow,

don't mind nothin'

if i know,
you will be

right here with me

 

(*)We'll let her stay, don't mind a point of view,
how can we all afford to live like you;
this life is simply not enough,
we have no grievances, we must be tough-

 

---CLARINET BREAK---


-poor boy- if that's the way it's gonna be
-poor boy- it's you for you and me for me
-poor boy-

 

i've tried all i can, understanding,

all the fools and all threir money,
when half of what they've got,

you know they never will use,
enough to get by, suits me fine,

i don't care if they think i'm funny.
i'm never gonna change my point of view,
don't mind the rain, don't mind snow,

don't mind nothing, if i know
you will be

right here with me,

all the way.


na-na-na
don't mind the rain, don't mind snow,

dont' mind nothing if i know
you will be right here with me , all the way

434a-RUDY – La m

Supertramp

 

Rudy's on a train to nowhere,

halfway down the line
He don't wanna get there,

but he needs time


He ain't sophisticated,

nor well-educated
After all the hours he wasted,

still he needs time.


He needs time - he needs time for livin',
He needs time - for someone just to see him.

*He ain't had no lovin'
For no reason or rhyme
And the whole world's above him.


*Well it's not as though he's fat
No there's more to this than that
See he tries to play it cool
Wouldn't be nobody’s fool.

 

Rudy thought that all good things

comes to those that wait
But recently he could see

that it may come too late.

All through your life, all through the years
Nobody loved, nobody cared.
So dim the light, dark are your fears
Try as I might, I can't hold back the tears


How can you live without love, it's not fair?
Someone said give but I just didn't dare.
What good advice are you waiting to hear?
Hearing's alright for them that's all there


You'd better gain control now
You'd better show'em all now
You'd better make or break now
You'd better give and take now
You'll have to push and shove now
You'll have to find some love now
You'd better gain control now.


Now he's just come out the movie.
Numb of all the pain,
Sad but in a while he'll soon be
back on his train…

434b-SCHOOL – La m

Supertramp

 

I can see you in the morning when you go to school
Don't forget your books,

you know you've got to learn the golden rule,


Teacher tells you stop your play

and get on with your work
And be like Johnnie - too-good,

well don't you know he never shirks
- he's coming along!

After School  is over you're playing in the park
Don't be out too late,

don't let it get too dark


They tell you not to hang around

and learn what life's about
And grow up just like them

won't you let it work it out
- and you're full of doubt

 

---INSTRUMENTAL BREAK---

Don't do this

and don't do that
What are they trying to do?-

Make a good boy of you
Do they know where it's at?


Don't criticize,

they're old and wise
Do as they tell you to
Don't want the devil to
Come out and put your eyes…


Maybe I'm mistaken

expecting you to fight
Or maybe I'm just crazy,

I don't know wrong from right


But while I am still living,

I've just got this to say
It's always up to you

 if you want to be that
want to see that


want to see that way…
- you're coming along!

435a-SISTER MOONSHINE – La M

Supertramp

 

Ooo-when i was a small boy,
well, i could see the magic in a day,
but, now i'm just a poor boy,
well, maybe it's the price you have to pay,


if you lock your dreams away
if no-one wants to listen.
What's the story,


i wish i'd been a minstrel,
just think of all the maidens i could call,
oh-i wish i'd been a gypsy,
then maybe i could read the crystal ball,


'cause surrounded by these walls,
just makes me feel uneasy.


I said hey, sister moonshine
won't you send

me a little sun
i said hey,

sister moonshine
who's a stranger

to everyone.

 

So, -make us all laugh-
make us all cry
-make us all give-
make us all try
give us a secret, show us the light,
well, strike up the music, light up the sky.


Mmm-if i was a lion,
well, i could be the king off all the plains,
mmm-if is was an eagle,
well, maybe i could fly above the rains,


oh, fly above the pain
but, i know i'm only foolin'
I said hey, sister moonshine,
won't you send me a little sun,
i said hey, sister moonshine,
who's a stranger

to everyone.
So, -make us all laugh-
make us all cry,
-make us all give-
make us all cry,
i said hey, sister moonshine
i said hey, sister moonshine,

i said hey, said hey
i said hey, i said hey sister moonshine

435b-A SOAPBOX OPERA – Mi m

Supertramp

 

I hear, only what I want to hear,
But, I have to believe in something,
Have to believe in just one thing.


I said Father Washington, you're all mixed up,
Collecting sinners in an old tin cup.
Well, spare a listen for a restless fool,
There's something missing when I need your rule…

Well ,hey there;

You tell me you're a holy man,

But, although I am just a beginner,
I don't see you as a winner.


I said, Sister Washington, you're all washed up,
Collecting teardrops in a paper cup;
If I could tell you what you need to know;
If I could tell you to get on with the show.

SINTH BREAK

 

I'd rather never leave her,
There's a storm in my head,
Makes me hear what you say;
Just was it true?


So, what have I to do?
-Well, what has he to do?-
Oh, what is there to-oo do
What oh-oh-ohoh

voices: "All creatures great and small,
all things wise and wonderful,

the lord god made them all"

Mary, oh tell me what I'm living for,
'Cause I feel like I'm tossed in the river,
Oh' have you a son to deliver.

I said, Father Washington, you're all mixed up,
Collecting sinners in an old tin cup,
you tell the children what you need to know,
But, will they listen when it's time to go.

Oh, Sister Robinson, you're all washed up,
Collecting teardrops in a paper cup,
Can someone tell me what I need to know,
Can someone help me to get on with the show.

436a-IT’S RAINING AGAIN – C1 La M

oh no it's raining again,

too bad, i'm losing a friend
oh no, it's raining again,

You're old enough, some people say,
to read the signs, and walk away.

and makes the sun come out again.

Oh it's raining again,

555a-SOONER OR LATER – Sol m

Supertramp

 

Sooner or later, it's gonna get better

Sooner or later, I'm gonna get over her

 

You know I can't go on like this

It's just a matter of time

There'll come a day when I will wake up

Without her on my mind

 

Sooner or later, it's gonna get better

Sooner or later, I'm gonna get over her

 

They say that time will heal everything

So I'm winding the clock

And waiting for the glorious moment

When my heartache will stop

 

She let me go

It took me by surprise

I feel out of place

Without her by my side

 

Sooner or later, it's gonna get better

Sooner or later, I'm gonna get over her

Sooner or later, sooner or later

Sooner or later...

555b-IF EVERYONE WAS LISTENING – C1 Si m

Supertramp

 

The actors and jesters are here,

The stage is in darkness and clear

For raising the curtain

and no-one's quite certain whose play it is.

 

How long ago, how long?

If only we had listened then.

If we'd known just how right

we were going to be.

 

For we dreamed a lot

And we schemed a lot

And we tried to sing

of love before

the stage… fell apart.

 

If Everyone was listening, you know

There'd be a chance that we could save the show,

Who'll be the last clown

To bring the house down?

Oh no, please no, don't let the curtain fall.

 

Clarinet break

 

Well, what is your costume today?

And who are the props in your play?

You're acting a part

which you thought from the start

was an honest one.

 

Well how do you plead?

An actor indeed!

Go re-learn your lines,

You don't know what you've done.

The finale's begun.

 

If Everyone was listening, you know

There'd be a chance that we could save the show,

Who'll be the last clown

To bring the house down?

Oh no, please no, don't let the curtain fall.

556a-WORDS UNSPOKEN – C1 Si m

Supertramp

 

Why sing a lonely song

The whole world knows that love goes wrong

Why bruise a heart that isn't broken

It isn't broken. It can be broken…

 

Life's just a show for free

Come along and watch with me

The only sins are words unspoken

Words unspoken, never spoken…

 

Sweet thing come and go

Give me shame, I'll give you woe

To live for love isn't so easy

It isn't easy, it won't be easy…

 

How all good men try

Look around and wonder why

Can they shape this world to please me

Can they please me, should they please me…

 

And follow, and maybe you'll correct me

Or wish you'd never met me

For I am no gentle man

Follow and while you watch and wonder

I pull the world asunder

And show you who I am

 

Send me a gentle dream

Of love so strange it's never seen

And prove how such a love can happen

It can happen, make it happen

 

Fine things don't abound

Fade away without a sound

But hope must never end or slacken

Never slacken, never slacken

 

And follow and maybe you'll correct me

Or wish you'd never met me

I am no gentle man

Follow and while you watch and wonder

I'll pull the world asunder

556b-YOU WIN, I LOOSE – Fa M

Supertramp

 

You win, I lose, I beg, you choose

You're so cool and I'm confused

Well, I'm me and you're you

You're so loose and I'm uptight

You're day and I'm night

 

Chorus:

Like two ships in the night in foggy weather

Just a-waitin' for fresh winds to blow

Maybe we're losin' one another

But I could be wrong, I don't know

 

You get the best, I get the rest

You passed the test, I'm just a mess

You got it made, I'm in the shade

 

CHORUS

 

Like two dopes in the boat, without a paddle

Just a-wonderin' why it don't go

We could be losin' one another

 

I could be wrong, I don't know

 

I know you're tryin' to phase me

It's gonna drive me crazy

I can't wait for the day when

 

I win and you lose

You beg and I choose

You're in the shade, I'm on parade

 

Like two ships in the night in foggy weather

Just a waitin' for fresh winds to blow

Maybe we're losin' one another

I could be wrong, I don't know

 

Like two dopes in the boat, without a paddle

Just a-wonderin' why it don't go

We could be losin' one another

I could be wrong I don't know (x2)

 

Like two ships in the night in foggy weather...

064b-NOTHING TO SHOW – Re m

Supertramp

 

Nothing to show beyond the fear I had

Body so warm within this perfumed bed

Sleeping alone, the shadow of a man

He will entice you too, and if he can

 

Nothing to show for love that's never been

Nothing to show for love that's never been

Nothing to show for love that's never been

 

Nothing is handed, power is changing fast

Many the empty hopes his lips caress

Sorry to say his days are spent in vain

Chasing a dream of doom of nights in pain

 

Nothing to show for love that's never been

Nothing to show for love that's never been

Nothing to show for love that's never been

 

Shadowy nights of memories of the grave

Gentle my love and sweetness sometimes sick

Keep up his time while his crimes are known

Only a fool can see he's sold his love

 

Nothing to show for love that's never been

Nothing to show for love that's never been

Nothing to show for love that's never been

 

Nothing to show for love that's never been

Nothing to show for love that's never been

Nothing to show for love that's never been

115a-AIN'T NOBODY BUT ME – Mi M

Supertramp

 

Let me tell you a story that'll make a change

Let me tell you when I'm way out of range

It's about a man who's cruel and mean

So promise not to cause a scene

And heaven help the ones you love

There's no big need for stars above

 

Well you can run, you know he'll find you

It don't matter now, just look behind you

You had your warning, you knew the score

You got it wrong, and that means war

So, why d'you have to treat me rough

Your explanation's not enough

 

Ain't nobody but me

Gonna lie for you

Gonna die for you

 

Ain't no fish in the sea

Gonna sigh for you

Gonna try for you

Gonna lie for you

Gonna die for you

 

Sax & guitar break

 

You see, I've got a double disposition

Sometimes I'm mean, sometimes I'm vicious

I'm Dr. Jekyll, I'm Mr. Hyde

So if you want to stay alive

Just give me all you've got to give

And then perhaps I'll let you live

 

Ain't nobody but me

Gonna lie for you

Gonna die for you

 

Ain't no fish in the sea

Gonna sigh for you

Gonna try for you

Gonna lie for you

Gonna die for you

Gonna sigh for you

Gonna try for you

Gonna lie for you

Gonna die for you

Hush.

Now baby, stop your crying

Oh, yes.

I know that I've been lying

Hush.

Now baby, stop your crying

Oh, yes.

 I know that I've been lying

 

Won't you hush.

Now baby, stop your crying

Oh, yes.

I know that I've been lying

Won't you hush.

Now baby, stop your crying

Oh, yes.

I know that I've been lying

Won't you hush.

Now baby, stop your crying…

115b-SURELY – La M

Supertramp

 

Surely there's a way

 I could please you

Only in your past

 lie the tears

 

Surely there's a day

you can say went your way

Some illusion you can keep

through the years

 

Only if I lied

could I love you

Nothing of our lives

could we share

 

Only could we try

to get by on a sigh

Just because,

 just this once, I was there

116a-EASY DOES IT – Re M

Supertramp

 

And if my thoughts had wings

I'd be the bird that sings;

I'd fly where love isn't shy,

And ev'ryone is willing to try.

 

And if we had the time,

That time's so hard to find,

I could believe what you say,

Start sending those shadows away.

 

And if you know who you are,

You are your own superstar,

And only

you can shape the movie that you make.

 

So when the lights disappear,

And only the silence is here,

Watch yourself, easy does it, easy does it,

easy while you wake.

 

solo

 

And if you know who you are,

You are your own superstar,

And only

you can shape the music that you make.

 

So when the crowds disappear

And only the silence is near,

Watch yourself, easy does it, easy does it,

easy while you wake.

116b-IT'S A LONG ROAD – Mi m

Supertramp

 

Well the road I see before me

Threatens pain at every bend, yeah

 

Well my needs are mine, I understand

And hope to calling friends

 

Well, good company,

 it may comfort me

But I don't want love to

distract my heart from the way

 

Now your love it gave me sorrow

And a broken heart to mend, yeah

 

So I took me to this lonely road

My sweet hopes, to defend

 

Oh and why pretend,

I won't look back

Even though the love of

a happy man waits before

 

break

 

Well, the winter wind blows chilly

And the road is dark and gray

So take pity on a wanderer should you pass me on the way

 

Oh, I'm left alone without a home

Makes a man ask why he travels on

When hope is gone

 

It's a long road

It's a long road

It's a long road

It's a long road

117a-JUST A NORMAL DAY – La M

Supertramp

 

Woke up cryin'

with the break of dawnin,

I looked out at the sky,

   

The air was still,

yet all the leaves were falling,   

Can you tell me why ?

 

Well, I just don't know the reason,    

I don't know what to say,   

it just seems a normal day,

   

and I've got to live my own life,   

I just can't spare the time,  

'Cause you've got strange things

on your mind

 

Well, I just feel

that every minute's wasted,   

My life is unreal,  

 

And anyway,

I guess I'm...I'm just not rated,   

At leastwise, that's how I feel...

 

Well, I just don't know the reason,   

I don't know what to say;   

It just seems a normal day   

 

Oh, And I've got to live my own life,   

I just can't spare the time;   

You've got strange things

on your mind.

 

Eat a lot,

sleep a lot,   

Passing the time of day,   

Maybe I'll find my way,

  

Who am I kidding?   

 

Is it just myself ?...

117b-TAKE THE LONG WAY HOME- C1 Si m

Supertramp

 

So you think you're a Romeo

Playing a part in a picture show?

Take the long way home

Take the long way home

 

'Cause you're the joke of the neighborhood

Why should you care if you're feeling good?

Take the long way home

Take the long way home

 

But there are times that you feel

You're part of the scenery

All the greenery

 is comin' down, boy

And then your wife seems to think

You're part of the furniture

Oh, it's peculiar!

 She used to be so nice

 

When lonely days turn to lonely nights

You take a trip to the city lights

And take the long way home

Take the long way home

 

You never see what you want to see

Forever playing to the gallery

You take the long way home

Take the long way home

 

And when you're up on the stage

It's so unbelievable,

oh unforgettable

How they adore you

 

But then your wife seems to think

You're losing your sanity

Oh, calamity!

Is there no way out?

 

Does it feel that you life's become a catastrophe?

Oh, it has to be for you to grow, boy

When you look through the years

And see what you could have been

Oh, what might have been!

If you'd had more time

 

So when the day comes to settle down

Who's to blame if you're not around?

You took the long way home

You took the long way home

118a-YOUR POPPA DON'T MIND – Do M7

Supertramp

 

Give it a whirl, give it a try

Why don't you sleep out, start living high?

You're on your own, you make your bed

No time for wasting, just look ahead

 

Your poppa don't mind what you do or say

You can't surprise him anymore

He's got a reputation that he don't look back

Your poppa don't mind at all

 

He's getting old, it's getting late

It's soon tomorrow, so celebrate

Bring it out and go to town

Before you're thinkin' of settling down

 

Your poppa don't mind what you do or say

You can't surprise him anymore

He don't believe in heaven like a good man should

Your poppa don't mind at all

 

Finding out is half the fun

And when you find out don't try to run

And if you know then you've begun

But if you don't know it's still to come

 

Your poppa don't mind what you do or say

You can't surprise him anymore

He talks about his women and his old school's tie

Your poppa don't mind at all

 

Your poppa don't mind what you do or say

You can't surprise him anymore

He don't believe in heaven like a good man should

Your poppa don't mind at all

Your poppa don't mind at all

Your poppa don't mind at all

122b-TIMES HAVE CHANGED – C1 Re m

Supertramp

 

Captain I am sorry

that the ship should go astray

Letting the ocean

have it's own way

 

Lay me down to pass exam,

 I'll pay for all my sins

Pleading for mercy,

my cancel begins

 

Times have changed,

and my vision ain't so strong

For the battle was too long,

for me to bear

 

I don't feel the pain,

for my soul is sinking fast

And I notice there's at last

a chance for me

 

In and out of turmor,

and in another mind

Deeper the ocean,

stronger the tide

 

Stormy seas surround me,

no sails to keep me dry

I prayed to you captain,

but you heard not my cry

 

Times have changed,

and my vision ain't so strong

For the battle was too long,

for me to bear

 

I don't feel the pain,

for my soul is sinking fast

And I notice there's at last

 a chance for me

 

For me, for my story

Let me lie in peace

I want to say I'm sorry now

Then I'll be on my way

Then I'll be on my way

Then I'll be on my way

 

Times have changed, …
