001a-I WOULDN'T WANT TO BE LIKE YOU - Mi m

Alan Parsons Project

 

If I had a mind to,

I wouldn't want to think like you.

And if I had time to

I wouldn't want to talk to you.

 

I don't care

What you do,

I wouldn't want to be like you.

 

I don't care

What you do,

I wouldn't want to be like you.

 

If I was high class

I wouldn't need a buck to pass.

And if I was a fall guy,

I wouldn't need no alibi...

 

I don't care

What you do,

I wouldn't want to be like you.

 

I don't care

What you do,

I wouldn't want to be like you.

 

Back on the bottom line,

Diggin' for a lousy dime.

If I hit a mother lode,

I'd cover anything that showed.

 

I don't care

What you do,

I wouldn't want to be like you.

 

I don't care

What you do...

I wouldn't wanna,

I wouldn't want to be like you.

I wouldn't want to be like you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

001b-SOME OTHER TIME - La m

Alan Parsons Project

 

Guitar& flute intro

 

In the matter of a moment

Lost till the end of time.

It's the evening of another

Day And the end of mine.

 

Now the starlight which has found me

Lost for a million years

Tries to linger as it fills my eyes

Till it disappears.

 

Could it be

that somebody else is

Looking into my mind?

 

Some other place,

Somewhere,

Some other time.

 

Some other place,

Somewhere,

Some other time...

 

Guitar break

 

Like a mirror held before me

Large as the sky is wide...

And the image is reflected

Back to the other side.

 

Could it be

 that somebody else is

Looking into my mind?

 

Some other place,

Somewhere,

Some other time.

 

Some other place,

Somewhere,

Some other time...

002a-DON'T LET IT SHOW – Do M

Alan Parsons Project

 

Organ intro

 

If it's getting harder to face every day,

Don't let it show,

don't let it show.

 

Though it's getting harder to take what they say,

Just let it go,

just let it go...

 

And if it hurts when they mention my name,

Say you don't know me...

And if it helps when they say I'm to blame,

Say you don't owe me...

Uuuuh…

 

Even if it's taking the easy way out,

Keep it inside of you. Don't give in.

Don't tell them anything.

Don't let it,

Don't let it show.

 

Even though you know it's the wrong thing to say,

Say you don't care,

say you don't care.

 

Even if you want to believe there's a way,

I won't be there...

I won't be there...

 

But if you smile when they mention my name,

They'll never know you.

And if you laugh when they say I'm to blame,

They'll never own you.

 

Even if you feel you've got nothing to hide,

Keep it inside of you. Don't give in,

Don't tell them anything.

Don't let it-

Don't let it show.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

002b-THE VOICE – Si m

Alan Parsons Project

 

 

 

It's almost a feeling

you can touch in the air,

You look all around you

but nobody's there.

 

It's been a long time

now since you've been aware

That someone is watching you...

(he's gonna get you)...

 

Sooner or later

when your big chances come,

You'll look for the catches

but there'll be none.

 

Remember before you

grab the money and run

That someone is watching you...

(he's gonna get you)...

 

Before you run and hide

He's gonna get you.

You got no choice,

'Cause you can't escape the voice.

 

Jumping at shadows

that come up from behind.

Scared of the darkness

that's there in your mind,

 

You're frightened to move

because of what you might find...

Someone is watching you...

(he's gonna get you)...

 

Before you run and hide

He's gonna get you.

You got no choice,

'Cause you can't escape the voice.

003a-THE TELL-TALE HEART – C1 Si m

Alan Parsons Project

 

           Uuuuaaaah…

 

You should have seen him

Lying alone in helpless silence in the night

You should have seen him

You would have seen

his eye reflecting in the light

 

So for the old man

Ashes to ashes, earth to earth and dust to dust

No one will see me

No one with guilt to share, no secret soul to trust

 

And he won't be found at all

Not a trace to mark his fall

Nor a stain upon the wall

 

Louder and louder

Till I could tell the sound was not within my ears

You should have seen me

You would have seen my eyes grow white and cold with fear

 

Heard all the things in Heaven and Earth

I've seen many things in Hell

But his vulture's eye of a cold pale blue

Is the eye of the Devil himself

 

Take me away now

But let the silence drown the beating of his heart

I can't go on

Let me be free from wretched sea that I can not see

Please let me be free

003b-THE SYSTEM OF DR. TARR – C1 Si m

            Alan Parsons Project

 

Just  what you need to make you feel better

Just what you need to make you feel

Just what you need to make you feel better

Just what you need to make you feel

 

At the far end of your tether

And your thoughts won't fit together

So you sleep light or whatever

And the night goes on forever

Then your mind change like the weather

You're in need of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether

 

Even clouds seem bright and breezy

'Cause the livin' is free and easy

See the rat race in a new way

Like you're wakin' up to a new day

It's a wise thing if you're clever

Take a lead from Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether

 

Find the end of a rainbow

Fly wherever the winds blow

Laugh at life like a sideshow

Just what you need to make you feel better

 

Satisfaction altogether

Guaranteed by Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether

 

Find the end of a rainbow

Fly wherever the winds blow

Laugh at life like a sideshow

Just what you need to make you feel better

 

Don't stop bringin' the girls round

Don't start havin' a showdown

Keep on handin' the jug round

All that you need is wine and good company

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

004a-TO ONE IN PARADISE – Mi M

Alan Parsons Project

 

IF I could see the sky above

And my mind could be set free

As wild white horses reached the shore

I'd stand alone and oversee

 

And if the bush before me burns

Should I turn my eyes away

And still the voices I can hear

As clear to me as light of day

 

I believed in my dreams

Nothing could change my mind

Now I know what they mean

How could I be so blind

 

Cold sands of time

(Winds that blow as cold as ice

Sounds that come in the night)

Shall hide what is left on me

(Come from Paradise)

 

I've been through times when no one cared

(Words that were mine)

I've seen clouds in empty skies

When one kind word meant more to me

(Shall last as a memory)

Than all the love in Paradise

 

I believed in my dreams

Nothing could change my mind

Till I found what they mean

Nothing can save me now

Lou Reed

 

Never been to England, never been to France

 never really learned how to dance

 I've never taken dope

and I've never taken drugs

 ah, I've never danced on a bear-skin rug

 

Guess it's true,

I'm gonna have to loose

my hometown ways

Guess it's true,

guess I've led a sheltered life

 

clarinet solo

 

Never went around with anything

I've had a hometown life,

and I have never learned to swing

Not much of a life, I haven't seen much

I've been true to my wife

and it's just been too much

 

 Guess it's true,

what all these people they say

 I'm gonna have to lose

my hometown ways

 You know it's true,

guess I've led a sheltered life

Guess it's true,

Bangles

 

All the old paintings on the tombs

They do the sand dance don't you know

If they move too quick (oh whey oh)

They're falling down like a domino

 

All the bazaar men by the Nile

They got the money on a bet

Gold crocodiles (oh whey oh)

They snap their teeth on your cigarette

 

Foreign types with the hookah pipes say

Whey oh, whey oh ay whey oh whey oh

Walk like an Egyptian

 

Blonde waitresses take their trays

They spin around and they cross the floor

They've got the moves (oh whey oh)

You drop your drink then they bring you more

 

All the school kids so sick of books

They like the punk and the metal band

When the buzzer rings (oh whey oh)

They're walking like an Egyptian

 

All the kids in the marketplace say

Whey oh, whey oh ay whey oh whey oh

Walk like an Egyptian

 

Slide your feet up the street bend your back

Shift your arm then you pull it back

Life is hard you know (oh whey oh)

So strike a pose on a Cadillac

 

If you want to find all the cops

They're hanging out in the donut shop

They sing and dance (oh whey oh)

Spin the clubs cruise down the block

 

All the Japanese with their yen

The party boys call the Kremlin

And the Chinese know (oh whey oh)

They walk the line like Egyptian

 

All the cops in the donut shop say

Whey oh, whey oh ay whey oh whey oh

Walk like an Egyptian

Walk like an Egyptian

Blondie

 

She moves like she don't care

Smooth as silk, cool as air

Ooh, it makes you wanna cry

 

She doesn't know your name

And your heart beats like a subway train

Ooh, it makes you wanna die

 

Ooh, don't you wanna take her?

Wanna make her all your own?

 

Maria, you've gotta see her

Go insane and out of your mind

Latina, Ave Maria

A million and one candle lights

 

I've seen this thing before

In my best friend and the boy next door

Fools for love and full of fire

 

Won't come in from the rain

She's oceans running down the drain

Blue as ice and desire

 

Don't you wanna make her?

Ooh, don't you wanna take her home?

 

Maria, you've gotta see her

Go insane and out of your mind

Latina, Ave Maria

A million and one candle lights

 

Ooh, don't you wanna break her?

Ooh, don't you wanna take her home?

 

She walks like she don't care

You wanna take her everywhere

Ooh, it makes you wanna cry

 

She's like a millionaire

Walkin' on imported air

Ooh, it makes you wanna die

 

Maria, you've gotta see her

Go insane and out of your mind

Latina, Ave Maria

A million and one candle lights

 

Maria, you've gotta see her

Go insane and out of your mind

007a-JAZZMAN – Do M7

Carole King

 

Lift me, won't you lift me

Above the old routine

Make it nice, play it clean

Jazzman

 

When the jazzman's testifyin'

A faithless man believes

He can sing you into paradise

Or bring you to your knees

 

It's a gospel kind of feelin'

A touch of Georgia slide

A song of pure revival

And a style that's sanctified

 

Jazzman, take my blues away

Make my pain the same as yours

With every change you play

Jazzman, oh, jazzman

 

When the jazzman's signifyin'

And the band is windin' low

It's the late night side of morning

In the darkness of his soul

 

He can fill the room with sadness

As he fills his horn with tears

He can cry like a fallen angel

When risin' time is near

 

Jazzman, take my blues away

Make my pain the same as yours

With every change you play

 

Oh, lift me, won't you lift me

With every turnaround

Play it sweetly, take me down

Oh, jazzman

007b-COMING AROUND AGAIN – Do M

Carly Simon

 

Baby sneezes.   Mommy pleases

Daddy breezes in

So good on paper. So romantic

So bewildering

 

I know nothing stays the same

But if you're willing to play the game

It's coming around again

 

So don't mind if I fall apart

There's more room in a broken heart

 

You pay the grocer You fix the toaster

Kiss the host goodbye

Then you break a window

Burn the soufflé

Scream a lullaby

 

I know nothing stays the same

But if you're willing to play the game

It's coming around again

 

So don't mind if I fall apart

There's more room in a broken heart

 

And I believe in love

But what else can I do

I'm so in love with you

 

I know nothing stays the same

But if you're willing to play the game

It will be coming around again

 

Baby sneezes Mommy pleases

Daddy breezes in

 

I know nothing stays the same

But if you're willing to play the game

It will be coming around again

 

I do believe ... I do believe

I believe in love

I believe in love

Coming around again

Coming around again

 

Nothing stays the same

But if you're willing to play the game

It will be coming around again

 

I believe in love   I believe in love

And it's coming around again

008a-THIS MASQUERADE – C1 Mi m

Carpenters

 

Are we really happy

With this lonely game we play

Looking for the right

Words to say

 

Searching but not finding

Understanding anyway

We're lost

In this masquerade

 

*Both afraid to say

we're just too far away

From being close together

from the start

 

We tried to talk it over

 but the words got in the way

We're lost inside

this lonely game we play

 

*Thoughts of leaving disappear

Each  time I see your eyes

And no matter how

Hard I try

 

To understand the reason

Why we carry on this way

We're lost

In a masquerade

Smiles awake you when you rise

Sleep, pretty darling, do not cry

I will sing a lullaby

 

Once there was a way

To get back homeward

Once there was a way

To get back home

Sleep, pretty darling, do not cry

I will sing a lullaby

 

Boy you're gonna carry that weight,

carry that weight for a long time

Boy you're gonna carry that weight,

carry that weight for a long time

 

I never give you my pillow,

I only send you my invitations

And in the middle of the celebrations,

I break down

 

Boy you're gonna carry that weight,

carry that weight for a long time

Boy you're gonna carry that weight,

carry that weight for a long time

 

Oh yeah, all right,

are you gonna be in my dreams tonight?

 

Love you, love you, love you, love you, love you, love you

Love you, love you, love you, love you, love you, love you

And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love, you make, Ah

Here I stand head in hand

Turn my face to the wall

If she's gone I can't go on

Feelin' two-foot small

 

Everywhere people stare

Each and every day

I can see them laugh at me

And I hear them say

 

Hey you've got to hide your love away

Hey you've got to hide your love away

 

How can I even try

I can never win

Hearing them, seeing them

In the state I'm in

 

How could she say to me

Love will find a way

Gather round all you clowns

Let me hear you say

 

Hey you've got to hide your love away

Hey you've got to hide your love away

I don't know why you should want to hide,

But I can't get through my hands are tied,

I won't want to stay

I don't have much to say,

But I get turned away.

And you won't see me,

you won't see me.

 

Time after time

you refuse to even listen,

I wouldn't mind

if I knew what I was missing.

 

Though the days are few

 they're filled with tears,

And since I lost you

it feels like years,

Yes it seems so long

girl since you've been gone,

I just can't go on,

If you won't see me, you won't see me.

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 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 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

015a-ROCK N' ROLL MUSIC – C1 Re M

Chuck Berry

 

Just let me hear some of that rock'n'roll music

Any old way you choose it

It's got a backbeat, you can't lose it

Any old time you use it

 

It's gotta be rock - roll music

If you wanna dance with me

If you wanna dance with me

 

I have no kick against modern jazz

Unless they try to play it too darn fast

And change the beauty of the melody

Until it sounds just like a symphony

That's why I go for that rock'n'roll music

Any old way you choose it

It's got a backbeat, you can't lose it

Any old time you use it

 

It's gotta be rock - roll music

If you wanna dance with me

If you wanna dance with me

 

I took my loved one over 'cross the tracks

So she could her my man a - whalin' sax

I must admit they have a rockin' band

Man they were goin' like a hurricane

That's why I go for that rock'n'roll music

Any old way you choose it

It's got a backbeat, you can't lose it

Any old time you use it

 

It's gotta be rock - roll music

If you wanna dance with me

If you wanna dance with me

 

Way down South they gave a jubilee

Them country folks they had a jamboree

They're drinkin' home - brew from a wooden cup

The folks dancin' got all shook up

And started playin' that rock'n'roll music

Any old way you choose it

It's got a backbeat, you can't lose it

Any old time you use it

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It's gotta be rock - roll music

If you wanna dance with me

If you wanna dance with me

 

Don't care to hear 'em play the tango

I'm in no mood to dig a mambo

It's way too early for the congo

So keep a - rockin' that piano

So I can hear some of that rock'n'roll music

any old way you choose it

It's got a backbeat, you can't lose it

Any old time you use it

 

It's gotta be rock - roll music

If you wanna dance with me

If you wanna dance with me

C1 Do M               Dionne Warwick

 

What do you get when you fall in love

A girl with a pin to burst your bubble

That's what you get for all your trouble

I'll never fall in love again, I'll never fall in love again

 

What do you get when you kiss a guy

You get enough germs to catch pneumonia

After you do, he'll never phone you

I'll never fall in love again, I'll never fall in love again

 

Don't tell me what it's all about

'Cause I've been there and I'm glad, I'm out

Out of those chains, those chains that bind you

That is why I'm here to remind you

 

What do you get when you fall in love?

You only get lies and pain and sorrow

So far, at least until tomorrow

I'll never fall in love again, I'll never fall in love again

Keep smilin', keep shinin'

 

 

 

017b-LOVE OVER GOLD – Fa M

Dire Straits

 

You walk out on the high wire.

You're a dancer on thin ice.

You pay no heed to the danger.

And less to advice.

 

Your footsteps are forbidden.

But with knowledge of your sin,

You throw your love to all the strangers,

And caution to the wind.

 

break

 

And you go dancing through doorways,

Just to see what you will find,

Leaving nothing to interfere,

With the crazy balance of your mind.

 

And when you finally reappear,

At the place where you came in,

You've thrown your love to all the strangers,

And caution to the wind.

 

break

 

It takes love over gold,

And mind over matter,

To do what you do that you must.

When the things that you hold,

Can fall and be shattered,

Or run through your fingers like dust.

018a-MY PARTIES – Mi m

Dire Straits

 

Well this is my back yard

My back gate

I hate to start my parties late

Here's the party card

Ain't that great?

That ain't the best part baby

Just wait

That's a genuine weathervane

It moves with the breeze

Portable hammock honey

Who needs trees

It's casual entertaining

We aim to please

At my parties

 

Check out the shingles

It's brand new

Excuse me while I mingle

Hi, how are you

Hey everybody

Let me give you a toast

This one's for me

The host with the most

 

It's getting a trifle colder

Step inside my home

That's a brass toilet tissue holder with its own telephone

That's musical doorbell

It don't ring, I ain't kiddin'

It plays "America the Beautiful" and "Tie a Yellow Ribbon"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Boy, this punch is a trip

It's o.k. in my book

Here, take a sip

Maybe little heavy on the fruit

Ah, here comes the dip

You may kiss the cook

Let me show you honey

It's easy - look

You take a fork and spike 'em

Say, did you try these?

So glad you like 'em

The secret's in the cheese

It's casual entertaining

We aim to please

At my parties

 

Now don't talk to me about the polar bear

Don't talk to me about ozone layer

Ain't so much of anything these days, even the air

They're running out of rhinos

What do I care?

Let's hear it for the dolphin

Let's hear it for the trees

Ain't runnin' out of nothin' in my deep freeze

It's casual entertaining

We aim to please

At my parties

All right, Uh-huh

You do what you please

At my parties

Allright, Uh-huh

019a-PRIVATE INVESTIGATION – Mi m

Dire Straits

 

It's a mystery to me.

The game commences.

For the usual fee –

plus expenses

 

Confidential information

- it's in a diary

This is my investigation

- it's not a public inquiry

 

I'm checking out the reports

yeah digging up the dirt

You get to meet all sorts

in this line of work

 

Treachery an treason

 - there's always an excuse for it

And when I find the reason

I still can't get used to it

 

And what have you got

at the end of the day?

What have you got

to take away?

 

A bottle of whisky

and a new set of lies

Blinds on the window

and a pain behind the eyes

Scarred for life - no compensation

Private investigation

 

 

 

019b-SHE WORKS HARD FOR THE MONEY

C2 Fa# m                 Donna Summer

 

She works hard for the money

so hard for it honey

she works hard for the money

so you better treat her right.

 

She works hard for the money

so hard for it honey

she works hard for the money

so you better treat her right.

 

Onetta there in the corner stand

and wonders where she is and

it's strange to her

some people seem to have everything.

 

Nine a.m. on the hour hand

and she's waiting for the bell

and she's looking real pretty

just wait for her clientele.

 

She works hard for the money

so hard for it honey

she works hard for the money

so you better treat her right.

 

She works hard for the money

so hard for it honey

she works hard for the money

so you better treat her right.

 

Twenty eight years have

come and gone

and she' seen a lot of tears

of the ones who come in

they really seem to need her there.

 

It's a sacrifice working day to day

for little money just tips for pay

But it's worth it all

just to hear them say that they care.

 

She works hard for the money

so hard for it honey

she works hard for the money

so you better treat her right. 

 

She already knows

she's seen her bad times

she already knows

these are the good times.

 

She'll never sell out

she never will

not for a dollar bill

she works hard.

 

She works hard for the money

so hard for it honey

she works hard for the money

so you better treat her right.

 

She works hard for the money

so hard for it honey

she works hard for the money

so you better treat her right.

 

She works hard for the money

so hard for it honey

she works hard for the money

so you better treat her right.

020a-BELIEVE – C1 Fa# m

Elton John

 

I believe in love,

it's all we got

Love has no boundaries,

 costs nothing to touch

 

War makes money,

cancer sleeps

Curled up in my father and

that means something to me

 

Churches and dictators,

politics and papers

Everything crumbles

sooner or later

But love, I believe in love

 

I believe in love,

 it's all we got

Love has no boundaries,

no borders to cross

 

Love is simple,

hate breeds

Those who think difference

is the child of disease

 

Father and son

make love and guns

Families together

kill someone

Without love, I believe in love

 

break

 

Without love

 I wouldn't believe

In anything

that lives and breathes

 

Without love

I'd have no anger

I wouldn't believe

in the right to stand here

 

Without love

I wouldn't believe

I couldn't believe in you

And I wouldn't believe in me

Without love

I believe in love

I believe in love

I believe in love

020b-BLUE EYES – C1 La M            

Elton John

 

Blue eyes

Baby's got blue eyes

Like a deep blue sea

On a blue blue day

 

Blue eyes

Baby's got blue eyes

When the morning comes

I'll be far away

And I say:

 

Blue eyes holding back the tears

Holding back the pain

Baby's got blue eyes

And she's alone

Again

 

Blue eyes

Baby's got blue eyes

Like a clear blue sky

Watching over me

 

Blue eyes

Ooh I love blue eyes

When I'm by her side

Where I long to be

I will see

 

Blue eyes laughing in the sun

Laughing in the rain

Baby's got blue eyes

And I am home, and I am home again

 

Blue eyes laughing in the sun

Laughing in the rain

Baby's got blue eyes

And I am home again

021a-ALWAYS ON MY MIND – Sol M

Elvis Presley

 

Maybe I didn't treat you

Quite as good as I should have

Maybe I didn't love you

Quite as often as I could have

 

Little things I should have said and done

I just never took the time

You were always on my mind

You were always on my mind

 

Maybe I didn't hold you

All those lonely, lonely times

And I guess I never told you

I'm so happy that you're mine

 

If I made you feel second best

Girl, I'm sorry I was blind

You were always on my mind

You were always on my mind

 

*Tell me,

tell me that your sweet love hasn't died

 

*Give me,

give me one more chance to keep you satisfied

Satisfied

 

Little things I should have said and done

I just never took the time

You were always on my mind

You were always on my mind

 

Maybe I didn't treat you

Quite as good as I should have

Maybe I didn't love you

Quite as often as I could have

 

Maybe I didn't hold you

All those lonely, lonely times

And I guess I never told you

I'm so happy that you're mine

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

021b-BLUEBERRY HILL – Mi M

Elvis Presley

 

I found my freedom

on blueberry hill

On blueberry hill

where I found you

 

The moon stood still

on blueberry hill

It lingered until

my dreams came true

 

The wind in the willow played

Love's sweet melody

But all of those vows we made

Were never to be

 

Tho' we're apart,

you're part of me still

For you were my thrill

On blueberry hill

 

The wind in the willow played

Love's sweet melody

But all of those vows we made

Were never to be

 

Tho' we're apart,

you're part of me still

For you were my thrill

On blueberry hill

022a-BEHIND THE LINES – Do M

Genesis

 

I held the book so tightly in my hands,

I saw your picture, heard you call my name

There was something strange, I could not look away

I wanted to be there, I wanted to go

 

You gave no warning

You gave me no reason

But I was with you

Right by your side

Just give me the strength,

And I will help you

And they can try their hardest,

Cos they don't frighten me

 

It is written in the book

 

It is hotter than I've known before,

But I feel so cold, and I don't know why

But if the fire within your heart can beat the storm

Then I really believe, you could make it right

 

Ooh the time has come now

We must show our feelings

But I'm looking right through you

And your heart is empty

 

Whatever happened to you it's too late to change now

There's nowhere you can run to, no place to hide

Ah you let me down!

 

...but wait a minute, I don't understand

It's getting stronger, so grab my hand

Don't wanna leave you, don't wanna go

But I'm losing all control

Can't you see me? I'm slipping away

I can only stay if you've the will to keep me here

 

It's written in the book

 

Oh so many times since then I've read those words

Just waiting to see you, can you see me?

022b-BURNING ROPE – Re M

Genesis

 

The warming sun, the cooling rain,

The snowflake drifting on the breath of the breeze,

The lightning bolt that frees the sky for you

Yet only eagles seem to pass on through.

The words of love, the cries of hate,

And the man in the moon who seduced you

Then finally loosed you.

 

You climbed upon a burning rope to escape the mob below,

But you had put the flaming out so that others could now follow,

To be out of the bounds and the barks of those who do not wish you well.

 

You must blaze a trail of your own, unknown, alone,

But keep in mind

Don't live today for tomorrow like you were immortal.

The only survivors on this world of ours are

The warming sun, the cooling rain,

The snowflake drifting on the breath of the breeze,

The lightning bolt that frees the sky for you

Yet only eagles seem to pass on through.

The words of love, the cries of hate,

And the man in the moon who seduced you

Then finally loosed you.

 

You're old and disillusioned now as you realise at last,

That all you have accomplished here will have soon all turned to

dust.

You dream of a future after life, well that's as maybe, I don't know.

But you can't take what you left behind, you're all alone.

So keep in mind

Don't live today for tomorrow like you were immortal.

The only survivors on this world of ours are

The warming sun, the cooling rain,

The snowflake drifting on the breath of the breeze,

The lightning bolt that frees the sky for you

Yet only eagles seem to pass on through.

The words of love, the cries of hate,

And the man in the moon...

 

023a-THE LAMIA – Si M7

Genesis

 

The scent grows richer,

he knows he must be near,

He finds a long passageway

lit by chandelier.

 

Each step he takes, the perfumes change

From familiar fragrance to flavours strange.

A magnificent chamber

meets his eye.

 

Inside, a long rose-water pool

is shrouded by fine mist.

Stepping in the moist silence,

with a warm breeze he's gently kissed.

 

Thinking he is quite alone,

He enters the room, as if it were his own

But ripples on the sweet pink water

Reveal some company

unthought of -

 

Rael stands astonished doubting his sight,

Struck by beauty, gripped in fright;

Three vermilion snakes of female face

The smallest motion, filled with grace.

 

Muted melodies fill the echoing hall,

But there is no sign of warning in the siren's call:

 

"Rael welcome, we are the Lamia of the pool.

We have been waiting

for our waters to bring you cool."

 

Putting fear beside him,

he trusts in beauty blind,

He slips into the nectar,

 leaving his shredded clothes behind.

 

With their tongues, they test, taste and judge

 all that is mine.

They move in a series of caresses

That glide up and down my spine.

 

As they nibble the fruit of my flesh,

I feel no pain,

Only a magic

that a name would stain.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With the first drop of my blood in their veins

Their faces are convulsed in mortal pains.

The fairest cries, "We all have loved you, Rael"

 

 

Each empty snakelike body floats,

Silent sorrow in empty boats.

A sickly sourness fills the room,

The bitter harvest of a dying bloom.

 

Looking for motion

I know I will not find,

I stroke the curls now turning pale,

 in which I'd lain entwined

 

"O Lamia, your flesh that remains I

 will take as my food"

It is the scent of garlic

that lingers on my chocolate fingers.

 

Looking behind me,

the water turns icy blue,

The lights are dimmed and once again

the stage is set for you.

024a-ALL IN A MOUSE'S NIGHT – C1 Do M

Genesis

 

[Loving Couple:]

I can't see you but I know you're there.

Got to get beside you 'cause it's really cold out here.

Come up close to me you'll soon be warm,

Hold me tightly like we're sheltering from a storm.

 

[Mouse:]

Think I might go out for a stroll

Into the night, and out of this hole.

Maybe find me a meal.

Walking along this new shag pile

Presents a problem all the while.

Nearly the door.

 

Suddenly he bumps into wood, the door is closed.

A voice from the bed, he'll be exposed.

Which way to run, must make for the hole,

The light's been turned on, he's blind as a mole in coal.

 

Now I can see they're coming at me,

They've blocked off my door, I haven't a chance in hell.

 

[Couple:]

Come on baby let the poor thing go.

I'm not sleeping with that thing around here, no.

Alright then, I'll fetch a box from below,

Guard him carefully, they're very quick you know.

 

[Mouse:]

The door's been opened, my chance to escape.

Must run out quick, better sorry than late.

I'm out on the stairs.

They won't catch me now, I've the run of the house now.

I'll make it downstairs and into the breadbin.

That would be nice.

 

Suddenly he bumps into fur, that's very unwise,

A cat is much quicker than men and their eyes.

The chase that ensues can have only one end,

Unless outside help steps in for our friend in need.

 

But now the cat comes in for the kill,

His paw is raised, soon blood will spill, yes it will.

 

 

 

 

 

 

[Cat:]

Hard luck mouse, this is the end of your road.

The signpost says inside me, let me bear your heavy load.

 

But it's not to be, that final pounce

Knocks a jar upon his head, and lays him out.

Aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah.

 

But it's all in a mouse's night

To take on all those who would fight.

 

[Cat's Story:]

There I was with my back to the wall,

Then comes this monster mouse, he's ten feet tall,

With teeth and claws to match.

It only took one blow.

025a-COUNTING OUT TIME – C1 Sol M

Genesis

 

I'm counting out time,

Got the whole thing down by numbers.

All those numbers!

Give me guidance!

O Lord I need that now.

 

The day of judgement's come,

And you can bet that I've been resting,

for this testing,

Digesting every word the experts say.

 

Erogenous zones I love you.

Without you, what would a poor boy do?

 

Found a girl I wanted to date,

Thought I'd better get it straight.

Went to buy a book before it's too late.

Don't leave nothing to fate.

 

I studied every line, every page in the book,

Now, I've got the real thing here,

 I'm gonna take a look, take a look.

 

This is Real!

 

I'm counting out time,

hoping it goes like I planned it,

'cos I understand it.

Look! I've found the hotspots, Figs 1-9.

 

- still counting out time,

got my finger on the button,

"Don't say nuttin - just lie there still

And I'll get you turned on just fine."

 

Erogenous zones I love you.

Without you, what would a poor boy do?

 

Touch and go with 1-6.

Bit of trouble in zone No. 7.

Gotta remember all of my tricks.

There's heaven ahead in No. 11!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Getting crucial responses, dilation of the pupils.

"Honey get hip! It's time to unzip,

to unzip, zip, zip-a-zip-a-zip.

Whipee!"

(Take it away Mr. Guitar)

- Move over Casanova -

 

I'm counting out time,

reaction none to happy, Please don't slap me,

I'm a red blooded male and the book

said I could not fail.

 

I'm counting out time,

 I got unexpected distress from my mistress,

I'll get my money back

from the bookstore right away.

 

Erogenous zones I question you -

Without you, what would a poor boy do?

Without you, what would a poor boy do?

Without you, mankind handkinds thru' the blues.

026a-CARPET CRAWLERS – La M

Genesis

 

There is lambswool under my naked feet

The wool is soft and warm,

gives off some kind of heat

 

A salamander scurries

into flame to be destroyed

Imaginary creatures

are trapped in birth on celluloid

 

The fleas cling to the golden fleece

Hoping they'll find peace

Each thought and gesture

are caught in celluloid

There's no hiding in my memory

There's no room

to void

 

The crawlers cover the floor

in the red ochre corridor

For my second sight of people,

they've more lifeblood than before

 

They're moving in time

to a heavy wooden door

Where the needle's eye is winking,

 closing in on the poor

 

The carpet crawlers

heed their callers:

"We've got to get in to get out

We've got to get in to get out

We've got to get in,… to get out"

 

There's only one direction

in the faces that I see

It's upward to the ceiling,

where the chambers said to be

 

Like the forest fight for sunlight,

that takes root in every tree

They are pulled up by the magnet,

 believing that they're free

 

The carpet crawlers

heed their callers:

"We've got to get in to get out

We've got to get in to get out

We've got to get in, to get out"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mild mannered supermen

are held in kryptonite

And the wise and foolish virgins

giggle with their bodies glowing bright

 

Through a door a harvest feast

 is lit by candlelight

It's the bottom of a staircase

that spirals out of sight

 

The carpet crawlers

heed their callers:

"We've got to get in to get out

We've got to get in to get out

We've got to get in, to get out"

 

The porcelain mannekin

with shattered skin fears attack

And the eager pack lift up their pitchers,

 they carry all they lack

 

The liquid has congealed,

which has seeped out through the crack

And the tickler takes his stickleback…

 

The carpet crawlers

heed their callers:

"We've got to get in to get out

We've got to get in to get out

We've got to get in, to get out"

 

027a-DOWN AND OUT – Re m

Genesis

 

It's good to be here! How've you been?

Check my bags, boy! Where's my room?

I sit on the phone, that's my game,

Keep up the pressure all the way!

 

I don't want to beat about the bush

But none of us are getting any younger.

There's people out there

who could take your place.

A more commercial view!

A fresher face!

 

I need a shower, take a nap

I'll meet you in the bar, we must have a rap.

There's a lot on the line, a lot to say.

There's something I must tell you today.

 

You and I both know the score,

You can't go on like this forever.

So it's with regret that I tell you now

That from this moment on,

You're on your own!

 

I don't talk round corners,

 it's right between the eyes

If you're slow they'll run past you,

Stand tall, see them falling over.

 

I walk a straight line,

it's right between the eyes.

Well show me the door, show me someone who'll do it better.

 

The drinks are on me, be my guest.

Smoke a cigar? Take the best.

Don't hedge your bets, we can make a deal,

You got it in your pocket, how do you feel?

 

So glad that's over, now you know,

But I'm only acting under orders.

And looking down on you from way up here.

You've got to sink or swim, get off the floor!

 

I don't talk round corners,

it's right between the eyes

If you're slow they'll run past you,

Stand tall, see them falling over,

 

I walk a straight line, right between the eyes.

Well show me the door, show me someone who'll do it better.

 

027b-SNOWBOUND – Do M

Genesis

 

Lay your body down upon the midnight snow

Feel the cold of winter in your hair

Here in a world of your own

In a casing that's grown

To the children's delight

That arrived on the night

 

Here they come to play their magic games

Carving names upon your frozen hand

Here in a world of your own

Like a sleeper whose eyes

Sees the pain with surprise

As it smothers your cries

They'll never, never know

 

Hey there's a Snowman

Hey, hey what a Snowman

Pray for the Snowman

Ooh, ooh what a Snowman

They say a snow year's a good year

Filled with the love of all who lie so deep

 

Smiling faces tear your body to the ground

Covered red that only we can see

Here in a ball that they made

From the snow on the ground

See it rolling away

With wild eyes to the sky

They'll never, never know

 

Hey there's a Snowman

Hey what a Snowman

Pray for the Snowman

Ooh, ooh what a Snowman

They say a snow year's a good year

Filled with the love of all who lie so deep

 

Hey there goes the Snowman

Hey there what a Snowman

Hey there lies a Snowman

Hey there was a Snowman

They say a snow year's a good year

Filled with the love of all who lie so deep

 

Hey there goes the Snowman ...

028a-ELEVENTH EARL OF MAR – Re M

Genesis

 

The sun had been up for a couple of hours,

Covered the ground with a layer of gold.

Spirits were high and the raining had stopped,

The larder was low, but--boy!--that wasn't all.

 

Eleventh Earl of Mar

Couldn't get them very far.

Daddy!!!

Oh, Daddy!!! You promised.

 

Out on the road in the direction of Perth,

Backwards and forwards in a circle they went.

Found a city half open and ready to greet

Those conquering heroes with blisters on their feet.

 

Eleventh Earl of Mar

Somehow got them all this far.

Daddy!!! You promised, you promised.

 

See the steward all dressed up,

He's got eyes in the back of his head ...

Who came in a cockleshell boat

That could only just float,

Couldn't even lift a sword,

Dressed too fine and smelling of wine.

 

Daddy, you've got to go!!!

Here comes the bishop all dressed up,

He's gonna bless you if you're ready to pay.

One wave of his funny old stick,

There's a band of light across your eyes.

 

Waited a week, still they hadn't appeared,

That glorious timing that everyone feared.

So they're riding along on the crest of a wave,

They're headed for London, and that will be their grave.

 

Eleventh Earl of Mar,

Well!!! he couldn't get them down that far.

Daddy!!! I'm waiting, I'm waiting.

 

Time to go to bed now,

Never seems too keen

To be a guest now

In a house of dreams.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Flying from a hillside

Beckoning the trees

A sailboat's awning

Mimicking the breeze.

 

I'm fighting gravity falling

My Daddy won't let them get me

A voice screams seems to be calling

The face turns features are burning.

 

Daddy, you've got to go!!!

See the fifteen going by,

Tell the Lairds and the Lords

They're running backwards today,

And once again you stand alone.

 

Bury your memories bury your friends,

Leave it alone for a year or two.

Till the stories go hazy

And the legends come true,

Then do it again.

Some things never end.

 

Eleventh Earl of Mar

Won't be going very far.

You promised, You promised, you promised.

Daddy!!!

 

029a-THE COLONY OF SLIPPERMEN – C1 Fa M

Genesis

 

Rael:

I wandered lonely as a cloud,

Till I came upon this dirty street.

I've never seen a stranger crowd;

Slubberdegullions on squeaky feet,

Continually pacing,

With nonchalant embracing,

Each orifice disgracing

And one facing me moves to say "hellay".

 

His skin's all covered in slimy lumps.

With lips that slide across each chin.

His twisted limbs like rubber stumps

Are waved in welcome say 'Please join in.

My grip must be flipping,

Cos his handshake keeps slipping,

My hopes keep on dipping

And his lips keep on smiling all the time.

 

We, like you, have tasted love.

Don't be alarmed at what you see,

You yourself are just the same

As what you see in me.

 

Me, like you?

Like that!!!

 

You better watch it son,

Your sentence has only just begun

You better run and join your brother John.

 

You're in the colony of slippermen.

There's no who?

Why?

What?

Or when?

You get out if you've got the gripe

To see, Doktor Dyper, reformed sniper

He'll whip off your windscreenwiper.

John and I are able

To face the Doktor and his marble table.

 

Understand Rael, that's the end of your tail.

 

Don't delay, dock the dick!!!

I watch his countdown timer tick...

 

He places the number into a tube,

It's a yellow plastic "shoobedoobe".

It says: Though your fingers may tickle

You'll be safe in our pickle.

 

 

 

 

 

Suddenly a black cloud come down from the sky.

It's a supersized black bird that sure can fly...

 

The raven brings on darkness and night

He flies right down,

Gives me one hell of a fright.

He take the tube right out of my hands

Man, I've got to find out where that black bird lands.

 

Look here John, I've got to run

I need you now, you going to come?

 

He says to me:

Now can't you see

Where the raven flies there's jeopardy.

We've been cured on the couch

Now!!! you're sick with your grouch.

I'll not risk my honey pouch

Which my slouch will wear slung very low.

 

He walks away and leaves me once again.

Even though I never learn,

I'd hoped he'd show just some concern.

 

I'm in the agony of Slipperpain

I pray my undercarriage will sustain.

The chase is on, the pace is hot

But I'm running so very hard

With everything that I've got.

He leads me down an underpass

Though it narrows,

He still flies very fast,

When the tunnel stops

Catch sight of the tube, just as it drops.

I'm on top of a bank too steep to climb

I see it hit the water just in time

To watch it float away...

030a-THE LADY LIES – C1 Si m

Genesis

 

The man steps out in the moonlight

At the sound of a scream from below.

He thinks he is a warrior

So he picks up his sword and goes.

 

From the mouth of the monster

He rescues the maiden fair.

But we know she's a demon

Come to lure him to demon's lair.

 

Through restless foliage

and tall trees he leads

To a house in a clearing,

a place in her fear she calls home.

 

"Come with me, I need you,

I fear the dark and I live all alone.

I'll give you wine and food too

And something special after if you like."

 

And though his body bids him

To enter in with her,

There was something in her manner

That his mind could not ignore.

 

Also it is whispered

In the kingdom far and wide,

To beware a little cottage

In the forest in a glade.

 

For who knows what magic

takes place in his world?

So he just thanks her kindly

 preparing to go on his way.

 

"Come with me, I need you,

I fear the dark and I live all alone.

I'll give you wine and food too

And something special after if you like.

 

Come to my garden,

Taste the fruits and the spices of love.

You can't resist me,

I'm the kind that your dreams tell you of."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"So glad you could make it

We had everything arranged.

So glad you saw fit to pay a call."

 

Some men never listen,

And others never learn,

But why this man did as he did

Only he will ever know.

 

He knew he was walking

Into a waiting trap,

Neatly set up for him

With a bait so richly wrapped.

 

So he went inside there

to take on what he found

But he never escaped them,

for who can escape what he desires?

 

"Come with me, I need you,

I fear the dark and I live all alone.

I'll give you wine and food too

And something special after if you like."

031a-LILYWHITE LILITH – C1 La M

Genesis

 

The chamber was in confusion

All the voices shouting loud

I could only just hear

A voice quite near say

"Please help me through the crowd"

 

Said if I helped her through

She could help me too

But I could see that she was wholly blind

But from her pale face

And her pale skin

A moonlight shined

 

Lilywhite Lilith

She gonna take you through the tunnel of night

Lilywhite Lilith

She gonna lead you right

 

When I'd led her through the people

The angry noise began to grow

She said "Let me feel

The way the breezes blow

And I'll show you where to go"

 

So I followed her into a big round cave

She said "They're coming for you

Now don't be afraid"

Then she sat me down

On a cold stone throne

Carved in jade

 

Lilywhite Lilith

She gonna take you through the tunnel of night

Lilywhite Lilith

She gonna lead you right

 

She leaves me in my darkness

I have to face

Face my fear

And the darkness

Closes in on me

I can hear a whirring sound

Growing near

 

I can see the corner of the tunnel

Lit up

By whatever's coming here

Two golden globes

Float into the room

And a blaze of white light

Fills the air

 

031b-ONE DAY – Do M

Genesis

 

Don't get me wrong

I think I'm in love

But the feeling in the word is more

Than your crystal eyes will ever see in me

Don't get me wrong

Open your eyes

Although I cannot show my heart

I'll watch and hope while you are near to me.

 

One day I'll capture you

And call you to my side

One day I'll take you from

The boredom of our lives

One day we'll fly away

To the kingdom of my dreams

One day I'll find myself

And wrap it in my love for you.

 

Birds of the sky, may I borrow your wings?

Very soon I'll ask my love

To travel with me to the world outside

Cherry trees, may I borrow your bloom?

Very soon I'll ask my love

To come inside the nest I'll build alone.

 

One day I'll capture you

And call you to my side

One day I'll take you from

The boredom of our lives

One day we'll fly away

To the kingdom of my dreams 

One day I'll find myself

And wrap it in my love for you.

 

Animal friends

Help me decide

When should I ask my love to leave?

I'll beg of you that she'll say yes to me

Breathe in deep

Now!!! is the time

She looks at me and gently smiles

As if she knew I'd ask her all the time.

 

One day I'll capture you

And call you to my side

One day I'll take you from

The boredom of our lives

One day we'll fly away

To the kingdom of my dreams

One day I'll find myself

And wrap it in my love for you.

032a-ONE-EYED HOUND – C1 Mi M

Genesis

 

Mister you've been caught at last

 Chasing dogs in the moonlight

 This man committed a sin

 This man he never can win

 

 Mister you've got one more chance

 If you catch the hound when the sun shines

 This man committed a sin

 This man he never can win

 

And it's all gone wrong

 Night is the time for chasing

the one-eyed hound

 And it's all been tried before

 Night is the time for chasing

the one-eyed hound

 

Have you seen the one-eyed hound?

 Tell me where he's going

 This man committed a sin

 This man he never can win

 

 Every place that I have been

 No-one else has seen him

 This man committed a sin

 This man he never can win

 

And it's all gone wrong

 Night is the time for chasing

 the one-eyed hound

 And it's all been tried before

 Night is the time for chasing

 the one-eyed hound

 

Everybody's telling me

exactly where to go

 This man committed a sin

 This man he never can win

 

 People call and people talk

 But they don't reach agreement

 This man committed a sin

 This man he never can win

 

And it's all gone wrong

 Night is the time for chasing the one-eyed hound

 And it's all been tried before

 Night is the time for chasing the one-eyed hound

 Night is the time for chasing the one-eyed hound

 

 

 

032b-THE CONQUEROR – La M

Genesis

 

He climbs inside the looking glass

And points at anything he hates

He calls to you, Hey look out son

There's a gun they're pointing

At your pretty face.

 

And the heads they are a rolling

Cos the conqueror is on his way

And the justice day is coming

For the conqueror is on his way.

 

Five hundred little women

Are calling at their hero's door

Yes!!! their hero is working overtime

He's squirming on an empty floor.

 

And the heads they are a rolling

Cos the conqueror is on his way

And the justice day is coming

For the conqueror is on his way.

 

He's bought the castle on the hill

He's bought it just to knock it down

The local power shout him down

They say he's just an empty headed clown.

 

And the heads they are a rolling

Cos the conqueror is on his way

And the justice day is coming 

For the conqueror is on his way.

 

He's busy building monuments

To hide inside his empty grave

You there, can you find some souls

He's looking for some people to save.

 

And the heads they are a rolling

Cos the conqueror is on his way

And the justice day is coming

For the conqueror is on his way

And the words of love are killing him

The conqueror is on his way.

 

And the words of love

Were lying on an empty floor

Just in the place

Where the conqueror lay...

033a-THAT'S ME – Si m

Genesis

 

Every morning when the people are out

And I'm free to move around on my own

I look into the sun and I see a reflection

Of a sad and lonely shrivelled man

 

That's me, that's me

And I know it's how I'm always gonna be

 

Nothing to do, nothing to say

Nothing to hope, and nothing to pray

 

I can see, I can feel

I've forgotten what I'm meant to be

Won't come back, not if I try

 

They told me things about me that I didn't know

But I could tell they've told me lies

And it really goes to show

That everyone was wrong

 

 And they don't understand my ways

 But it's not me that's going wrong, it's them

 

I can see, I can feel

I've forgotten what I'm meant to be

Won't come back, not if I try

 

They told me things about me that I didn't know

 But I could tell they've told me lies

 And it really goes to show

 That everyone was wrong

 And they don't understand my ways

 But it's not me that's going wrong, it's them

 

Every morning when the people are out

And I'm free move around my own

I look into the sun and I see a reflection

Of a sad and lonely shrivelled man

 

That's me, that's me

And I know it's how I'm always gonna be

That's me, that's me

And I know it's how I'm always gonna be

 

Shrivelled old man Who hides from a world

He's never seen the light That can set him free

His vicious life Is such a shame

I wanna find out who's to blame

 

And that's me, oh that's me, aaoh

Set me free

 

033b-A WINTER'S TALE – La M

Genesis

 

The winter's bitterness is lost

It's the fireside warmth that comforts me

The peace for all my thoughts.

 

The night brings shadows to the street

It's the time for dreams of things to come

To creep inside their lives.

 

You're concealing every feeling

Can you find me, deep inside you

Let me touch you, let me keep you

Let me know you're there.

 

You're concealing every feeling

Can you find me, no

Yes!!! deep inside you're a part of me

Every day I need to know I'm there,

I'm there, I'm there.

 

The evening fantasy begins

In the sandy lanes that cross the fields

The gentle rain will fall.

 

The morning sweeps away the night

And the dreams of you still haunt my thoughts

Bring meaning to my life.

 

CHORUS

 

Can you hold me with your small hand

Prepare much,

Length and beauty of our tiny lives

Future's brighter now

Our world is everything to me, to know,

I'm there

Lord!!! You see the world is brighter than the sky

The sky is shining everywhere in our world

You know you never said in your many times,

All in me instead.

Scattering mountains all around you

Thrashing with violence

Hurling its lava up and down

Furnace of frenzy

Burning with power uncontrolled

 

That is the sound of a new born world

And the light from a curious sky

It has begun

You're in the hands of destiny

 

   Is that the chariot with stallions gold?

   Is that a prince of heaven on the ground?

   Is that the roar of a thundercrash?

   This is my world and it's waiting to be crowned

I will sing of you now,

old friend of my childhood

 when the memories grow stronger

and the hard times are dead

 

 and I see you so clear

old cloth cap and blue eyes

 and your words and your laughter,

still ring in my head

 

 and there were times when I thought,

 life could not change you

 that you were of iron

and hard as a stone

 

 then I lifted the veil

and I saw you were fooling

 for gentle, hurt easy,

 like a child you were lost

 

 for time and a river

they roll on together

 who knows where we're going to,

or where we came from

 

 Oh John, there was no one to touch you

 Lord knows I miss you,

 now that you've gone

 

 And I saw through your eyes,

that the snow it lay whiter

 that the deeps they were deeper,

that the summers ran dry

 

 and the rivers were oceans

deep rolling in splendour

 the trees they were giants,

that talked with the sky

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then one morning they found you,

like a child as if sleeping

 but open hand stretching,

wide eyed to the sky

 

 and the void that you left,

was too deep for the filling

 and the love that you gave us,

oh it never will die

 

 for time and a river

they roll on together

 who knows where we're going to

or where we came from

 

 Oh John, there was no one to touch you

 Lord knows I miss you,

 now that you've gone

Baby lonely crying in the rain

says she'll never be the same again

she found she'd been locked outside last night

he was the friend who said he'd see her right

 

she reached the point, of no return

and now she can't come back

let the Devil take the highroad to Romeo Jack

 

Your conquests hang like washing on your line

you got it all worked out, it's working fine

when the tree ain't in the orchard

and the fruit is free for all

you let chance shake the apples and you

catch 'em as they fall

 

The rain can't damp your ardour

better wear your plastic mac

and it's quite OK to lie on, Romeo Jack

 

a flower by the roadside, turns her

face toward the sun, and sits in a dream

and what use is a flower, when it's

hidden out of sight and can't be seen

 

The womens' league is up in arms again

it needs a sense of purpose now and then

they're shocked they say, about the things you do

but give them half a chance and they'd do it too

the best laid plans of mice and men

are running rather slack

they seek him here, they seek him there

illusive Romeo Jack

 

I've heard it said you've almost had your run

and all your moral values are undone

and when at Twenty Five you're past your best

then leave the shattered remnants to the rest

and to show yourself from time to time

you haven't lost the knack

pack your bags and come and join us Romeo Jack

 

pack your bags and come and join us Romeo Jack

pack your bags and come and join us Romeo Jack

Forever, forever, forever

 

*I've seen the fussing and the fighting

I've seen the struggle to be free

I've known the laughter and the sorrow

There'll always be tomorrow

waiting there

 

Forever

as the wind blows from the sea

You and I shall be together just to see

It is no ordinary consequence of time

We're prisoners on the line

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

037b-DOWN ALONG UP – Sol M

Magna Carta

 

Run, run the morning's come

and the air's like wine about me

run, run the morning's come

and the night is far behind

 

blow, blow the morning wind

turn the leaves around me

blossoms fall like summer snow

for gentle feet to tread

 

run, run the river runs

if I look into your pools

would I see her smile

 

blow, blow the summer wind

running on before me

take the words that fill my heart

and say I'm on my way

 

run, run the river run

say I'm on my way

blow, blow the summer wind

say I'm on my way

038a-GIVE ME NO GOODBYE – C2 Mi m

Magna Carta

 

Give me no goodbye

though it's time for you to go

give no reason why

I don't really want to know

 

When your love walks alone in your memory

and the bed in the corner is dumb

 the swallow has turned from the north wind

hiding his face in the sun,

 

yes he does so you run

 

Give me no goodbye

though it's time for you to go

give no reason why

I don't really want to know

 

I was your friend for a moment

a flame in the night for you to burn

to take, whenever you were hungry

to teach, with someone there to learn,

 

yes you do so you turn

 

yes you turn

yes you turn,

from me my love

 

Give me no goodbye

 though it's time for you to go

give no reason why

I don't really want to know

 

got no time, got no time,

got no time to make or mend

there's no time, there's no time,

there's no time at all my friend

 

Give me no goodbye

though it's time for you to go

  give no reason why

 I don't really want to know

 

give me no goodbye  give me no goodbye…

038b-STING OF THE GIN – La m

Magna Carta

 

There's a cold rain falling from the sky above

and I'm lost as a woman on a drifter's love

there's a singin' in the wire,

there's a singin' in my head

and I can't find my own way home you can

 

tell by the style and the cut of my clothes

I've seen better days god only knows

I'm like a one man bandit at the Alamo

Running from the guns again

just running from the guns again

 

 It's in the bite of the whisky

it's in the kiss of the wine

it's in the touch of Tequila

or the fruit of the vine

 

but the very next morning,

when you let yourself in

and she asks you what happened,

you blame it on the sting of the gin

 

big man picking up a telephone

he's got a woman in the city, got a woman at home

he waits for a line, then he hangs up in time

and reaches for the bottle again you can

 

 lose your job and the money's all gone

and it don't look too good in the cold light of dawn

so you have a little drink, just to set you up again

for tomorrow

 

 It's in the kick of the vodka

 it's in the hush of the rye

sweet Amon-till-ado

gently kiss you goodbye

 

it's a way of forgetting,

the state that you're in

when no one believes you you

blame it on the sting of the gin

 

sting of the gin

 

 

 

 

 

 

039a-WILD GEESE – Re M

Magna Carta

 

Beyond the salty tideway,

and the wide deserted shore

the sea mixes colours

with the sky

 

and the wild geese come, winging in,

like sails upon the wind

wayfaring strangers

to the land

 

now I wonder what it's like to be,

beyond the midnight sun

with the diamond ice field's flashing

and the long day never done

 

Well I seem to here them

calling, in the language of the free

the spirit, of the wide

north land

 

there are times and situations,

where a man must stand alone

believing he never,

never had a friend

 

the walls crowd in to crush him

and words pierce him to the bone,

for he tries so hard to make it,

and he finds he just can't take it,

in the end

 

short flute solo

 

but there's a lesson in the silence,

you know it's as ageless as the sun

you're never, given more,

than you can bear

 

and though you might just call to question,

all the things that you have done

that ain't gonna take you

anywhere

 

for sunset bloods the water,

the wind blows endlessly

the wild geese fly the ancient trails,

across the evening sky

 

and I seem to hear them calling,

in the language of the free

the spirit, of the wide north land

the spirit, of the wide north land

039b-LIVING WITH A WOMAN LIKE YOU-

Sol M                             Magna Carta

 

I get home weary

don't have a lot to say

I turn my back on

the end of a working day

 

sound of the city

coming off the street

you can feel the rhythm

right through your feet

 

living ain't easy times

you don't have a clue

but I got all I need

 just living with a woman like you

 

don't have much money

or travel in a limosine

no friends of fashion

or places where faces are seen

 

well I got you and it matters a lot

no point in missin' what you just ain't got

I might be crazy nothin' more I can do

but I got all I need

just living with a woman like you

with a woman like you

 

we've been here so long

we both got each other

and I hope that's the way it will stay

it's been a long song wouldn't sing another

though I know that iy's easy to say

 

All in all, you can fight 'til the end of the line

Run for the money, and I'm runnin' most of the time

well I got you and a little bit more

love is together that's what it's for

it's all I can take I'm just makin' it through

but I got all I need just

living with a woman like you

with a woman like you

god I got all I need just

living with a woman like you

040a-SAN FRANCISCO BAY BLUES – Do M

Magna Carta

 

I got the blues from my baby

left me by the San Francisco Bay,

The ocean liner's

gone so far away.

 

Didn't mean to treat her so bad,

she was the best girl I ever have had,

She said goodbye, I can take a cry,

 I want to lay down and die.

 

I ain't got a nickel

and I ain't got a lousy dime.

She don't come back,

think I'm going to lose my mind.

 

If she ever gets back to stay,

it's going to be another brand new day,

Walking with my baby

down by the San Francisco Bay.

 

BREAK

 

Sitting down looking from my back door, wondering which way to go,

The woman I'm so crazy about,

she don't love me no more.

 

Think I'll catch me a freight train,

'cause I'm feeling blue,

And ride all the way to the end of the line, thinking only of you.

 

Meanwhile, in another city,

 just about to go insane,

Thought I heard my baby, Lord,

the way she used to call my name.

 

If I ever get her back to stay,

 it's going to be another brand new day,

Walking with my baby

down by the San Francisco Bay.

 

Walking with my baby

down by the San Francisco Bay.

 

Walking with my baby

down by the San Francisco Bay.

 

 

 

 

 

040b-ULYSSES – Re M

Magna Carta

 

Ice flowers on your window

you know it's cold outside

sparks flyin' to the night sky

but I'm here with you beside me now

 

naked as a child

naked as a child

 

time finds a weary traveller

on such a night as this

I feel you stir against me

I kiss away the dark and lonely times

 

we've been alone

Lady, we've been alone

 

Oh, my mistress is the guitar

and my lover she's the song

times we were the best of friends and

but I know here in my heart

how much I needed you

and that's all I can say

 

can't think of one good reason

to cause you pain

my life is but a season

and restless as the tide and I'm movin' on

 

and in your arms again

in your arms again

 

Oh, my mistress is the guitar

and my lover she's the song

times we were the best of friends and

but I know here in my heart

how much I love you

and that's all I can say

and that's all I can say

041a-NOTHING SO BAD – Re M

Magna Carta

 

We were talking

just yesterday

And the night was so still and warm

and the earth was dry,

waiting for the rain to cry

That it's all over

 

I can hear you

so clear

And your words filled the night with pain

Everywhere you try to run

there's nowhere left to go

 

Everything you try to be

nobody wants to know

You're all so busy growing

there's little left to grow…

Left to grow

 

So old friends

don't you be so sad

For nothing's so bad

it can't get better in the end

nothing's so bad

it can't get better

 

flute & guitar solo

 

I can see you

so clear

Just holding a drink you did not need

and your eyes were angry,

 

brooding like a storm

that breaks,

the clears the sky

 

So old friend

don't you be so sad

For nothing's so bad

it can't get better in the end

nothing's so bad

 it can't get better

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

041b-FACES OF LONDON – Sol M

Magna Carta

 

There are lights on the water

they shine on a river

from St. Pauls down to Gravesend,

they shine to the sea

 

and I'm sick and I'm tired

footsore and weary

the faces of London,

got nothing on me

 

???

got by on a coffee

songs of the rivers, of the

hills and old ways

 

and the faces of London

no time for the stopping

each one an island,

in a big lonely sea

 

*the wind blows the paper

past the underground stations

the streets are deserted

and cold as a grave

 

*I remember on leaving

your last words so well

you'll always survive,

if you've something to sell

 

accordion break

 

now it's four in the morning

the cold neon mourning

there's a Rolls rolling homeward

and the driver he's yawning

 

and I'm sharing this moment

with a drunk and a bottle

two faces of London

with nowhere to go

042a-IN TOMORROW – Mi M

Magna Carta

 

There's a time before the morning

when the earth is hushed and still

and the streetlights lose their halos

and the cats slide home to bed

 

it's mostly then I miss you, see your

sweet face on the pillow by my side

and it's cold here in tomorrow

and I got no place to hide

 

I've loved the perfect strangers

had my share of old fairweather friends

but I did not lack for comfort

when I was lost and had no place to go

 

I see us walk beside the river

feel the warm wind touch your hair

then we fade into tomorrow

and I'm miles from anywhere

 

*I gotta do what I gotta do

there's no special, reason to give

God knows,

 I wouldn't do it any other way

 

*I need the wheels and a changin' tide

like the desert needs the rain

there's nothing more than I can say

more than I can say

 

Guitar break

 

so leave your lovelight burning

Honeybabe, I'm coming home

I'll be real as daybreak (daybreak… )

not just sweet words on a telephone

 

and shut the crazy

world outside the door

and I'll love you 'til tomorrow

takes me down the road once more

 

I'll love you 'til tomorrow

takes me down the road once more

I'll love you 'til tomorrow

Well we were young

and that doesn't really matter now

those days were fun

and that's all that really matters now

my rainy day companion

 

well I don't know

why I turn the pages now

the words seem so clear

although my eyes are misty

 

now my rainy day companion

*Time after time I've been

 changing my mind I've been

living from day to day

Though there were nights

I thought might last forever now

but that's not, right

for nothing lasts forever now

043a-WILD HORSES – Re M

Magna Carta

 

You and I just wild horses

aiming for the sun

 You and I were younger then and growing

 

And the old grey house in the winter wild

And the springtime of the year

She loved us like a mother does her children

She loved us like a mother does her children

 

Fishin' in a trout stream,

running wild along the dale.

We were free as the clouds in the morning.

 

No T.V. or electric light

and the darkness fell like a winter's night

 And silence was a friend you did not question

Silence was a friend you did not question

 

All of these changes we've been through

And seen through together

Follow the changes and know that the

Past lives within you forever...

Forever, forever

 

 You and I just young dreamers

 lying in the grass

And the long shadowed evening behind us

 

 Living out our freedom

never knowing that we asked

Too much of the road that's before us

Too much of the road that's before us

 

All of these changes we've been through

And seen through together

Follow the changes and know that the

Past lives within you for ever...

Forever, forever

 

All of these changes we've been through

And seen through together

Follow the changes and know that the

Past lives within you for ever...

Forever, forever…

Ask my baby what she wants to be

She’ll say a monkey swingin’ in a tree

Ask my baby what she’s thinkin’ of

She’ll say there’s nothing greater than love

Tell me what do you see

A beautiful planet

Peace and harmony

 

Think love you’re surrounded

We are one you and I

Gather your leaves together

There’s only love until we die

Until we die

 

Ask my baby what she’s goin’ through

She’ll say the same thing, the same thing as you

Ask my baby what she’s thinkin’ of

She’ll say there’s nothing greater than love

 

Look through the window
