(I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone

I I I I I'm not your stepping stone
I I I I I'm not your stepping stone

You're trying to make your mark in society
Using all the tricks that you used on me.
You're reading all those high fashion magazines
The clothes you're wearin' girl are causing public scenes.

I said
I I I I I'm not your stepping stone
I I I I I'm not your stepping stone
Not your stepping stone,
Not your stepping stone.

When I first met you girl you didn't have no shoes
Now you're walking 'round like you're front page news.
You've been awful careful 'bout the friends you choose
But you won't find my name in your book of Who's Who.

I said
I I I I I'm not your stepping stone
I I I I I'm not your stepping stone
Not your stepping stone,
Not your stepping stone.

A Hard Day's Night

It's been a hard day's night, and I'd been working like a dog
It's been a hard day's night, I should be sleeping like a log
But when I get home to you I find the things that you do
Will make me feel alright

You know I work all day to get you money to buy you things
And it's worth it just to hear you say you're going to give me everything
So why on earth should I moan, cos when I get you alone
You know I feel OK

When I'm home everything seems to be right
When I'm home feeling you holding me tight, tight, yeah

It's been a hard day's night, and I'd been working like a dog
It's been a hard day's night, I should be sleeping like a log
But when I get home to you I find the things that you do
Will make me feel alright owww

So why on earth should I moan, cos when I get you alone
You know I feel OK

When I'm home everything seems to be right
When I'm home feeling you holding me tight, tight, yeah

It's been a hard day's night, and I'd been working like a dog
It's been a hard day's night, I should be sleeping like a log
But when I get home to you I find the things that you do
Will make me feel alright
You know I feel alright

Fortunate Son

Some folks are born made to wave the flag
Ooh, they're red, white and blue
And when the band plays Hail to the chief
Ooh, they point the cannon at you, Lord
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no senator's son, son
It ain't me, it ain't me; I ain't no fortunate one, no

Yeah!
Some folks are born silver spoon in hand
Lord, don't they help themselves, oh
But when the taxman comes to the door
Lord, the house looks like a rummage sale, yes

It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no millionaire's son, no
It ain't me, it ain't me; I ain't no fortunate one, no

Some folks inherit star spangled eyes
Ooh, they send you down to war, Lord
And when you ask them, How much should we give?
Ooh, they only answer More! more! more! yoh

It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no military son, son
It ain't me, it ain't me; I ain't no fortunate one, one

It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no fortunate one, no no no
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no fortunate son, no no no

Tumbling Dice

Women think I'm tasty, but they're always tryin' to waste me
And make me burn the candle right down,
But baby, baby, I don't need no jewels in my crown.
'Cause all you women is low down gamblers,
Cheatin' like I don't know how,
But baby, baby, there's fever in the funk house now.
This low down bitchin' got my poor feet a itchin',
You know you know the duece is still wild.
Baby, I can't stay, you got to roll me
And call me the tumblin' dice.
Always in a hurry, I never stop to worry,
Don't you see the time flashin' by.
Honey, got no money,
I'm all sixes and sevens and nines.
Say now, baby, I'm the rank outsider,
You can be my partner in crime.
But baby, I can't stay,
You got to roll me and call me the tumblin',
Roll me and call me the tumblin' dice.
Oh, my, my, my, I'm the lone crap shooter,
Playin' the field ev'ry night.
Baby, can't stay,
You got to roll me and call me the tumblin' (dice),
Roll me and call me the tumblin' (Got to roll me.) dice.
Got to roll me. Got to roll me.

Down On The Corner

Early in the evenin' just about supper time
Over by the courthouse they're starting to unwind
Four kids on the corner trying to bring you up
Willy picks a tune out and he blows it on the harp

[Chorus:]
Down on the corner, out in the street
Willy and the Poorboys are playin'
Bring a nickel; tap your feet

Rooster hits the washboard and people just got to smile
Blinky, thumps the gut bass and solos for a while
Poorboy twangs the rhythm out on his kalamazoo
Willy goes into a dance and doubles on kazoo

[Chorus]

[Chorus]

You don't need a penny just to hang around
But if you've got a nickel, won't you lay your money down?
Over on the corner there's a happy noise
People come from all around to watch the magic boy

[Chorus]
[Chorus]

Mean Mr. Mustard Medley

Mean Mister Mustard sleeps in the park, Shaves in the dark trying to save paper
Sleeps in a hole in the road, Saving up to buy some clothes
Keeps a ten-bob note up his nose

Such a mean old man, Such a mean old man

His sister Pam works in a shop she never stops, she's a go-getter
Takes him out to look at the queen, Only place that he's ever been
Always shouts out something obscene
Such a dirty old man, Dirty old man

|

Well you should see Polythene Pam
She's so good-looking but she looks like a man
Well you should see her in drag dressed in her polythene bag
Yes you should see Polythene Pam, Yeah yeah yeah

Get a dose of her in jackboots and kilt
She's killer-diller when she's dressed to the hilt
She's the kind of a girl that makes the News of the World
Yes you could say she was attractively built
Yeah yeah yeah

|

(Gonna come out now, ha ha ha, wow look out.)
|
She came in through the bathroom window
Protected by a silver spoon
But now she sucks her thumb and wanders
By the banks of her own lagoon
Didn't anybody tell her? Didn't anybody see?
Sunday's on the phone to Monday Tuesday's on the phone to me
She said she'd always been a dancer
She worked at 15 clubs a day
And though she thought I knew the answer
Well I knew what I could not say
And so I quit the police department And got myself a steady job
And though she tried her best to help me
She could steal but she could not rob
Didn't anybody tell her? Didn't anybody see?
Sunday's on the phone to Monday
Tuesday's on the phone to me Oh yeah

|

Oh yeah, all right Are you going to be in my dreams Tonight?
[Drum solo]
[Guitar solos]

And in the end
The love you take
Is equal to the love
You make

Tonight, Tonight

Time is never time at all
You can never ever leave without leaving a piece of youth
And our lives are forever changed
We will never be the same
The more you change the less you feel
Believe, believe in me, believe
That life can change, that you're not stuck in vain
We're not the same, we're different tonight
Tonight, so bright
Tonight
And you know you're never sure
But you're sure you could be right
If you held yourself up to the light
And the embers never fade in your city by the lake
The place where you were born
Believe, believe in me, believe
In the resolute urgency of now
And if you believe there's not a chance tonight
Tonight, so bright
Tonight
We'll crucify the insincere tonight
We'll make things right, we'll feel it all tonight
We'll find a way to offer up the night tonight
The indescribable moments of your life tonight
The impossible is possible tonight
Believe in me as I believe in you, tonight

Who Are You

Who are you? Who, who, who, who?
Who are you? Who, who, who, who?
Who are you? Who, who, who, who?
Who are you? Who, who, who, who?

I woke up in a Soho doorway, A policeman knew my name
He said You can go sleep at home tonight If you can get up and walk away

I staggered back to the underground And the breeze blew back my hair
I remember throwin' punches around And preachin' from my chair

[chorus:]
Well, who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Tell me, who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
'Cause I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

I took the tube back out of town Back to the Rollin' Pin
I felt a little like a dying clown With a streak of Rin Tin Tin

I stretched back and I hiccupped And looked back on my busy day
Eleven hours in the Tin Pan God, there's got to be another way

Who are you?
Ooh wa ooh wa ooh wa ooh wa ...

Who are you? Who, who, who, who?
Who are you? Who, who, who, who?
Who are you? Who, who, who, who?
Who are you? Who, who, who, who?

[chorus]

I know there's a place you walked Where love falls from the trees
My heart is like a broken cup I only feel right on my knees
 
I spit out like a sewer hole Yet still recieve your kiss
How can I measure up to anyone now After such a love as this?

[chorus]

Kodachrome

When I think back on all the crap I've learned in highschool
It's a wonder I can think at all
Though my lack of education hasn't hurt me much
I can read the writings on the walls

[Chorus:]
Kodachrome, they give us those nice bright colours
They give us the greens of summers
Makes you think all the world's a sunny day, oh yeah
I got a Nicon camera, I love to take a photograph
So mama don't take my Kodachrome away

If you took all the girls I knew when I was single
Brought 'em all together for one night
I know they'd never match my sweet imagination
Everything looks better in black and white

[Chorus]

Mama don't take my Kodachrome away, mama don't take my Kodachrome away
Mama don't take my Kodachrome away

Mama don't take my Kodachrome, mama don't take my Kodachrome
Mama don't take my Kodachrome away
Mama don't take my Kodachrome and leave your boy so far from home
Mama don't take my Kodachrome away
Mama don't take my Kodachrome, whew whew, mama don't take my Kodachrome away

The Seeker

I looked under chairs 
I looked under tables
I'm tryin to find the key
To fifty million fables

They call me the seeker
I been searchin low and high
I wont get to get what I'm after
Till the day I die

I asked bobby dylan
I asked the beatles 
I asked timothy leary
But he couldn't help me either 

They call me the seeker 
I been searchin low and high
I wont get to get what I'm after 
Till the day I die

People tend to hate me 
Cuz I never smile 
As I ransack their homes
They wanna shake my hand

Focusing on nowhere 
Investigating miles
I'm a seeker I'm a really desperate man

I wont get to get what I'm after
Till the day I die

I learned to raise my voice in anger 
Yeah but look at my face ain't this a smile

I'm happy when life's good and when its bad I cry
I got values but I don't know how or why

I'm lookin for me 
You're lookin for you
Were lookin at each other and we don't know what to do

They call me the seeker
I been searchin low and high
I wont get to get what I'm after
Till the day I die

Say It Ain't So


Oh yeah  Alright 
Somebody's Heine' 
Is crowdin' my icebox 
Somebody's cold one 
Is givin' me chills 
Guess i'll just close my eyes 

Oh yeah  Alright 
Feels good  Inside 

Flip on the tele 
Wrestle with Jimmy 
Something is bubbling 
Behind my back 
The bottle is ready to blow 

Say it ain't so 
Your drug is a heartbreaker 
Say it ain't so 
My love is a life taker 

I can't confront you 
I never could do 
That which might hurt you 
So try and be cool 
When I say 
This way is a waterslide away from me 
That takes you further every day 
So be cool 

Say it ain't so 
Your drug is a heartbreaker 
Say it ain't so 
My love is a life taker 

Dear Daddy, 
I write you in spite of years of silence 
You've cleaned up, found Jesus, 
Things are good or so I hear 
This bottle of Steven's awakens ancient feelings 
Like father, stepfather, the son is drowning in the flood 
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah 

Say it ain't so 
Your drug is a heartbreaker 
Say it ain't so 
My love is a life taker

American Girl

Well, she was an American girl
Raised on promises
She couldn't help thinkin'
That there was a little more to life somewhere else
After all it was a great big world
With lots of places to run to
And if she had to die tryin'
She had one little promise she was gonna keep

O yeah, all right
Take it easy, baby
Make it last all night
She was an American girl

Well it was kind of cold that night,
She stood alone on her balcony
Yeah, she could hear the cars roll by,
Out on 441 like waves crashin' on the beach
And for one desperate moment
There he crept back in her memory
God it's so painful when something that's so close
Is still so far out of reach

O yeah, all right
Take it easy, baby
Make it last all night
She was an American girl

Sweet Caroline

Where it began,
I can't begin to knowin'
But then I know it's growing strong
Was in the spring
And spring became the summer
Who'd have believed you'd come along.

Hands, touchin' hands
Reachin' out, touchin' me touchin' you
Sweet Caroline
Good times never seemed so good
I've been inclined
To believe they never would
But now I, look at the night
And it don't seem so lonely
We fill it up with only two.

And when I hurt,
Hurtin' runs off my shoulders
How can I hurt when I'm with you
Warm, touchin' warm
Reachin' out, touchin' me touchin' you
Sweet Caroline
Good times never seemed so good
I've been inclined,
To believe they never would
Oh, no, no

Sweet Caroline
Good times never seemed so good
Sweet Caroline,
I believe they never could

Kiss Off

I need someone, a person to talk to
Someone who'd care to love
Could it be you?
Could it be you?

The situation gets rough, and I start to panic
It's not enough, it's just a habit
And, kid, you're sick
Well, darling, this is it

Well, you can all just kiss off into the air
Behind my back, I can see them stare
They'll hurt me bad, but I won't mind
They'll hurt me bad, they do it all the time (yeah, yeah!)
Yeah, they do it all the time (yeah, yeah!)
They do it all the time (do it all the time!)
They do it all the time (do it all the time!)
They do it all the time, do it all the time

I hope you know that this will go down on your permanent record!
Oh, yeah? Well, don't get so distressed
Did I happen to mention that I'm impressed?

I take one, one, one 'cause you left me
And two, two, two for my family
And three, three, three for my heartache
And four, four, four for my headaches
And five, five, five for my lonely
And six, six, six for my sorrow
And seven, seven for no tomorrow
And eight, eight, I forget what eight was for
But nine, nine, nine for the lost gods
Ten, ten, ten, ten for everything, everything, everything

Well, you can all just kiss off into the air
Behind my back, I can see them stare
They'll hurt me bad, but I won't mind
They'll hurt me bad, they do it all the time (yeah, yeah!)
Yeah, they do it all the time (yeah, yeah!)
They do it all the time (do it all the time!)
They do it all the time (do it all the time!)

Gold On The Ceiling

Down in the waves
She screams again
Roar at the door
My mind can’t take much more
I could never drown in

They wanna get my…
They wanna get my
Gold on the ceiling
I ain’t blind
Just a matter of time
Before you steal it
It’s alright
Ain’t no guard in my house

Clouds covered love's
Barb-wired snare
Strung up, strung out
I just can’t go without
I could never drown in

They wanna get my…
They wanna get my
Gold on the ceiling
I ain’t blind
Just a matter of time
Before you steal it
It’s alright
Ain’t no guard in my house

Play That Funky Music

Hey, do it now    Yeah, hey
Hey, Once I was a funky singer playin' in a Rock and Roll Band
I never had no problems, yeah Burnin' down one night stands
And everything around me, yeah
Got to stop to feelin' so low And I decided quickly (Yes I did)
To disco down and check out the show
Yeah, they was dancin' and singin' and movin' to the groovin'
And just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted
Play that funky music white boy   Play that funky music right
Play that funky music white boy
Lay down the boogie and play that funky music till you die
Till you die  Oh ya, ya
I tried to understand this
I thought that they were out of their minds
How could I be so foolish (How could I)
To not see I was the one behind
So still I kept on fighting
Well, loosing every step of the way
I said, I must go back there (I got to go back)
And check to see if things still the same
Yeah they was dancin' and singin' and movin' to the groovin'
And just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted
Play that funky music white boy  Play that funky music right
Play that funky music white boy
Lay down the boogie and play that funky music till you die
Till you die, ya      Till you die
(Gonna play that electified funky music, yeah)
(Hey, wait a minute)  Now first it wasn't easy
Changin' Rock and Roll and minds and things were getting shaky
I thought I'd have to leave it behind
But now its so much better (it's so much better)
I'm funking out in every way
But I'll never lose that feelin' (no I won't)
Of how I learned my lesson that day
When they were dancin' and singin' and movin' to the groovin'
And just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted
Play that funky music white boy  Play that funky music right
Play that funky music white boy
Lay down the boogie and play that funky music till you die
Till you die  Oh' till you die
They shouted play that funky music  (Play that funky music)
Play that funky music  (You Gotta keep on playin' funky music)
Play that funky music   (Play that funky music)
Play that funky music  (Come and take you higher, ya)
Play that funky music white boy  Play that funky music right, ya
Play that funky music white boy  Play that funky music right
Play that funky music white boy  Play that funky music right

Bad, Bad Leroy Brown

Well the south side of Chicago Is the baddest part of town
And if you go down there  You better just beware
Of a man name of Leroy Brown

Now Leroy more than trouble  You see he stand ‘bout six foot four
All those downtown ladies call him Treetop Lover
All the men just call him Sir          (triplet roll)
And he's bad, bad Leroy Brown The baddest man in the whole damn town
Badder than old King Kong And meaner than a junkyard dog

Now Leroy he a gambler And he like his fancy clothes
And he like to wave his diamond rings Under everybody's nose

CLAPS      He got a custom Continental  He got an Eldorado too
He got a 32 gun in his pocket full a fun He got a razor in his shoe

And he's bad, bad Leroy Brown The baddest man in the whole damn town
Badder than old King Kong And meaner than a junkyard dog

Well Friday 'bout a week ago Leroy shootin' dice
And at the edge of the bar Sat a girl named Doris
And oh that girl looked nice

Well he cast his eyes upon her And the trouble soon began
And Leroy Brown had learned a lesson 
'Bout a-messin' with the wife of a jealous man   (triplet roll)


And he's bad, bad Leroy Brown The baddest man in the whole damn town
Badder than a-old King Kong And meaner than a junkyard dog

(Soft rimshot shuffle) Well the two men took to fighting And when they pulled them from the floor
Leroy looked like a jigsaw puzzle With a couple of pieces gone
 
And it's bad, bad Leroy Brown The baddest man in the whole damn town
Badder than old King Kong And meaner than a junkyard dog       (triplet roll)


And he's bad, bad Leroy Brown The baddest man in the whole damn town
Badder than old King KongAnd meaner than a junkyard dog
 
Yeah he was badder than old King Kong And meaner than a junkyard dog.

Float On

I backed my car into a cop car the other day
Well he just drove off sometimes life's ok
I ran my mouth off a bit too much oh what did I say
Well you just laughed it off it was all ok

And we'll all float on ok
And we'll all float on ok
And we'll all float on ok
And we'll all float on any way well

Well, a fake Jamaican took every last dime with that scam
It was worth it just to learn from sleight-of-hand
Bad news comes don't you worry even when it lands
Good news will work its way to all them plans
We both got fired on the exactly the same day 
Well we'll float on good news is on the way

And we'll all float on ok
And we'll all float on ok
And we'll all float on ok
And we'll all float on alright

Alright don't worry we'll all float on

Short break

And we'll all float on alright

Alright already we'll all float on
Ok don't worry we'll all float on
Even if things get heavy we'll all float on

Santeria

I don't practice Santeria
I ain't got no crystal ball
Well, I had a million dollars but I, I'd spend it all.
If I could find that Heina, and that Sancho that she's found.
Well I'd pop a cap in Sancho & I'd slap her down.

What I really wanna know, mah baby, mmmm...
What I really wanna say I can't define.
Well it's love, that I need. Ohh...

My soul will have to, wait till I get back, find a Heina of my own.
Daddy's gonna love one and all.
I feel the break, feel the break, feel the break and I gotta live it up.
Oh, yeah, uh huh.
Well I swear that I.

What I really wanna know, ahh baby.
What I really wanna say I can't define, got love make it go.
My soul will have to...

[Instrumental Break]

Ooooo...
What I really wanna say, mah baby.
What I really wanna say is I've got mine, and I'll make it, oh yes I'm coming up.

Tell Sanchito that if he knows what is good for him he best go run and hide.
Daddy's got a new Forty-Five.
And I won't think twice to stick that barrel straight down Sancho's throat.
Believe me when I say that I got somethin' for his punk ass.

What I really wanna know, mah baby.
Ooh What I really wanna say is there's just one, way back, and I'll make it, yeah.
My soul will have to wait, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Modern Love

I know when to go out 
And when to stay in 
Get things done [spoken]

I catch a paper boy
But things don't really change
I'm standing in the wind
But I never wave bye-bye

But I try
I try

There's no sign of life
It's just the power to charm
I'm lying in the rain
But I never wave bye-bye

But I try
I try

Never gonna fall for
Modern Love walks beside me
Modern Love walks on by
Modern Love gets me to the Church on Time
Church on Time terrifies me 
Church on Time makes me party
Church on Time puts my trust in God and Man 
God and Man no confessions
God and Man no religion
God and Man don't believe
in Modern Love

Joy To The World

Jeremiah was a bull frog
Was a good friend of mine
I never understood a single word he said
But I helped him drink his wine
And he always had some mighty fine wine

Singin' Joy to the world
All the boys and girls, now
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me

If I were the king of the world
Tell you what I'd do
I'd throw away the cars and the bars and the wars
Make sweet love to you

Singin' nowJoy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me

You know I love the ladies
Love to have my fun
I'm a high night flier and a rainbow rider
A straight-shootin' son of a gun
I said a straight shootin' son of a gun

Joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea 
Joy to you and me

Joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me

Joy to the world, All the boys and girls
Joy to the world, Joy to you and me

Joy to the world
All the boys and girls, now
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me

Joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me

Just Like Heaven

Show me how you do that trick
The one that makes me scream she said
The one that makes me laugh she said
And threw her arms around my neck
Show me how you do it
And I promise you I promise that
I'll run away with you
I'll run away with you

Spinning on that dizzy edge
I kissed her face and kissed her head
And dreamed of all the different ways I had
To make her glow
Why are you so far away? she said
Why won't you ever know that I'm in love with you
That I'm in love with you

You
Soft and only
You
Lost and lonely
You
Strange as angels
Dancing in the deepest oceans
Twisting in the water
You're just like a dream

Daylight licked me into shape
I must have been asleep for days
And moving lips to breathe her name
I opened up my eyes
And found myself alone alone
Alone above a raging sea
That stole the only girl I loved
And drowned her deep inside of me

You
Soft and only
You
Lost and lonely
You
Just like heaven

"No Rain"

All I can say is that my life is pretty plain
I like watchin' the puddles gather rain
And all I can do is just pour some tea for two
and speak my point of view
But it's not sane, It's not sane

I just want some one to say to me
I'll always be there when you wake
Ya know I'd like to keep my cheeks dry today
So stay with me and I'll have it made

And I don't understand why I sleep all day
And I start to complain that there's no rain
And all I can do is read a book to stay awake
And it rips my life away, but it's a great escape
escape...escape...escape...
All I can say is that my life is pretty plain
ya don't like my point of view
ya think I'm insane
Its not sane...it's not sane.

"Short Skirt / Long Jacket"

I want a girl with a mind like a diamond
I want a girl who knows what's best
I want a girl with shoes that cut
And eyes that burn like cigarettes

I want a girl with the right allocations
Who's fast and thorough
And sharp as a tack
She's playing with her jewelry
She's putting up her hair
She's touring the facility
And picking up slack

I want a girl with a short skirt and a lonnnng jacket......

I want a girl who gets up early
I want a girl who stays up late
I want a girl with uninterrupted prosperity
Who uses a machete to cut through red tape
With fingernails that shine like justice
And a voice that is dark like tinted glass

She is fast and thorough
And sharp as a tack
She's touring the facility
And picking up slack

I want a girl with a short skirt and a lonnnnng.... lonnng jacket

I want a girl with a smooth liquidation
I want a girl with good dividends
At Citibank we will meet accidentally
We'll start to talk when she borrows my pen

She wants a car with a cupholder arm rest
She wants a car that will get her there
She's changing her name from Kitty to Karen
She's trading her MG for a white Chrysler La Baron

I want a girl with a short skirt and a lonnnnggggggggg jacket

Get Back



Jojo was a man who thought he was a loner
But he knew it wouldn't last
Jojo left his home in Tucson, Arizona
For some California grass

Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back Jojo
Go home

Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back Jo

Sweet Loretta Martin thought she was a woman
But she was another man
All the girls around her say she's got it coming
But she gets it while she can

Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back Loretta
Go home

Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged

Get back
Woo...

(Thanks, Mo!

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group
and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition!)

"Here Comes Your Man"

outside there's a box car waiting
outside the family stew
out by the fire breathing
outside we wait 'til face turns blue
i know the nervous walking
i know the dirty beard hangs
out by the box car waiting
take me away to nowhere plains
there is a wait so long
here comes your man

big shake on the box car moving
big shake to the land that's falling down
is a wind makes a palm stop blowing
a big, big stone fall and break my crown
there is a wait so long
you'll never wait so long
here comes your man
there is a wait so long
you'll never wait so long
here comes your man

"Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town"

i seem to recognize your face
haunting, familiar, yet i can't seem to place it
cannot find the candle of thought to light your name
lifetimes are catching up with me

Crash on “all”
all these changes taking place, i wish i'd seen the place
but no one's ever taken me

pause
hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away... 
hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away... 

Crash I
i swear i recognize your breath
memories like fingerprints are slowly raising
me, you wouldn't recall, for i'm not my former
it's hard when, you're stuck upon the shelf
i changed by not changing at all, small town predicts my fate
perhaps that's what no one wants to see
i just want to scream...hello...
my god its been so long, never dreamed you'd return
but now here you are, and here i am
hearts and thoughts they fade...away...

finish
hearts and thoughts they fade...away...
hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away...

hearts and thoughts they fade...

"Hey Ya"

[Intro]
One, two, three, uh!

[Verse One - Andre 3000]
My baby don't mess around
Because she loves me so
And this I know for sure.
Uh, But does she really wanna
But can't stand to see me
Walk out the door.
Don't try to fight the feelin'
'Cause the thought alone is killing me right now..
Uh, thank god for mom and dad
For sticking two together
'Cause we don't know how...
UH!

[Chorus:]
Hey... ya.
Hey ya.
Hey... ya.
Hey ya.
Hey... ya.
Hey ya.
Hey... ya.
Hey ya.

[Verse Two - Andre 3000]
You think you've got it
Oh, you think you've got it
But got it just don't get it
'Til there's nothing at all
We get together
Oh, we get together
But separate's always better when there's feelings involved
If what they say is "Nothing is forever"
Then what makes, then what makes, then what makes
Then what makes, what makes, what makes love the exception
So why you, why you
Why you, why you, why you are we so in denial
When we know we're not happy here...
Y'all don't want me here you just wanna dance

[Chorus]
Hey... ya. (OH OH)
Hey ya. (OH OH)
Hey... ya. (Don't want to meet your daddy, OH OH)
Hey ya. (Just want you in my Caddy OH OH)
Hey... ya. (OH OH, don't want to meet yo' mama OH OH)
Hey ya. (Just want to make you cumma OH OH)
Hey... ya. (I'm, OH OH I'm, OH OH)
Hey ya. (I'm just being honest OH OH, I'm just being honest)

[Bridge - Andre 3000]
Hey, alright now
Alright now fellas yeah!
Now what's cooler than bein' cool?
(ICE COLD!)
I can't hear ya'
I say what's, what's cooler than bein' cool?
(ICE COLD!)
Whooo...
Alright, alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright,
OK now ladies (yeah!)
Now we gon' break this thing down in just a few seconds
Now don't have me to break this thing down for nothing
Now I wanna see y'all on your baddest behavior
Lend me some sugar, I am your neighbor
Uh!Here we go know...
Shake it, shake, shake it, shake it (oh oh)
Shake it, shake it, shake, shake it, shake it, shake it (oh oh)
Shake it, shake it like a Polaroid Picture, shake it, shake it
Shh you got to, shake it, shh shake it, shake it, got to shake it
(Shake it sugar) shake it like a Polaroid Picture

[Verse Three - Andre 3000 (Repeating "Shake it" in background)]
Now all Beyoncé's and Lucy Liu's
And baby dolls, get on the floor
(Get on the floor)
You know what to do.
You know what to do.
You know what to do!

[Chorus]
Hey... ya. (OH OH)
Hey ya. (OH OH)
Hey... ya. (OH OH)
Hey ya. (Uh oh, Hey ya)
Hey... ya. (OH OH)
Hey ya. (Uh, uh, OH OH)
Hey... ya. (OH OH)
Hey ya. (OH OH)

[Chorus continues until fade]

"Mr.Jones"

I was down at the New Amsterdam staring at this
yellow-haired girl
Mr. Jones strikes up a conversation with this black-
haired flamenco dancer
She dances while his father plays guitar
She's suddenly beautiful
We all want something beautiful
I wish I was beautiful
So come dance this silence down through the morning
Cut up, Maria! Show me some of them Spanish dances
Pass me a bottle, Mr. Jones
Believe in me
Help me believe in anything
I want to be someone who believes
Mr. Jones and me tell each other fairy tales
Stare at the beautiful women
"She's looking at you. Ah, no, no, she's looking at me."
Smiling in the bright lights
Coming through in stereo
When everybody loves you, you can never be lonely
I will paint my picture
Paint myself in blue and red and black and gray
All of the beautiful colors are very very meaningful
Gray is my favorite color
I felt so symbolic yesterday
If I knew Picasso
I would buy myself a gray guitar and play
Mr. Jones and me look into the future
Stare at the beautiful women
"She's looking at you.
I don't think so. She's looking at me."
Standing in the spotlight
I bought myself a gray guitar
When everybody loves me, I will never be lonely
I want to be a lion
Everybody wants to pass as cats
We all want to be big big stars, but we got different
reasons for that
Believe in me because I don't believe in anything
and I want to be someone to believe
Mr. Jones and me stumbling through the barrio
Yeah we stare at the beautiful women
"She's perfect for you, Man, there's got to be
somebody for me."
I want to be Bob Dylan
Mr. Jones wishes he was someone just a little more
funky
When everybody loves you, son, that's just about as
funky as you can be
Mr. Jones and me staring at the video
when I look at the television, I want to see me staring
right back at me
We all want to be big stars, but we don't know why
and we don't know how
But when everybody loves me, I'm going to be just
about as happy as I can be
Mr. Jones and me, we're gonna be big stars...

"Run-Around"

Oh,
Once upon a midnight dreary
I woke with something in my head
I couldn't escape the memory
Of a phone call and of what you said

Like a game show contestant with a parting gift
I could not believe my eyes
When I saw through the voice of a trusted friend
Who needs to humor me and tell me lies
Yeah, humor me and tell me lies

And I'll lie too and say I don't mind
And as we seek so shall we find
And when you're feeling open I'll still be here
But not without a certain degree of fear
Of what will be with you and me
I still can see things hopefully

But you
Why you wanna give me a run-around
Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up
When all it does is slow me down

And shake me and my confidence
About a great many things
But I've been there I can see it cower
Like a nervous magician waiting in the wings

Of a bad play where the heroes are right
And nobody thinks or expects too much
And Hollywood's calling for the movie rights
Singing hey babe let's keep in touch
Hey baby let's keep in touch

But I want more than a touch I want you to reach me
And show me all the things no one else can see
So what you feel becomes mine as well
And soon if we're lucky we'd be unable to tell
What's yours and mine, the fishing's fine
And it doesn't have to rhyme, so don't you feed me a line

But you
Why you wanna give me a run-around
Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up
When all it does is slow me down

Tra la la la la bombardier this is the pilot speaking
And I've got some news for you
It seems my ship still stands no matter what you drop
And there ain't a whole lot that you can do

Oh sure the banner may be torn and the wind's gotten colder
Perhaps I've grown a little cynical
But I know no matter what the waitress brings
I shall drink it and always be full
Yeah, I will drink it and always be full

Oh I like coffee, and I like tea
I'd like to be able to enter a final plea
I still got this dream that you just can't shake
I love you to the point you can no longer take

Well all right okay
So be that way, I hope and pray
That there's something left to say...

For you, now
Why you wanna give me a run-around
Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up
When all it does is slow me down

Oh, yeah, now
Why you wanna give me a run-around
Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up
When all it does is slow me down

"Santa Monica"

I am still livin' with your ghost
Lonely and dreamin' of the west coast
I don't wanna be your downtime
I don't wanna be your stupid game
With my big black boots and an old suitcase
I do believe I'll find myself a new place
I don't wanna be the bad guy
I don't wanna do your sleepwalk dance anymore
I just wanna see some palm trees
I will try and shake away this disease
We can live beside the ocean
Leave the fire behind
Swim out past the breakers
Watch the world die
We can live beside the ocean
Leave the fire behind
Swim out past the breakers
Watch the world die
I am still dreamin' of your face
Hungry and hollow for all the things you took away
I don't wanna be your good time
I don't wanna be your fallback crutch anymore
Walk right out into a brand new day
Insane and risin' in my own weird way
I don't wanna be the bad guy
I don't wanna do your sleepwalk dance anymore
I just wanna feel some sunshine
I just wanna find some place to be alone
Yeah watch the world die

"You May Be Right"

Friday night I crashed your party, Saturday I said I'm sorry
Sunday came and trashed me out again
I was only having fun
Wasn't hurting anyone
And we all enjoyed the weekend for a change

I've been stranded in the combat zone
I walked through Bedford Stuy alone
Even rode my motorcycle in the rain
And you told me not to drive
But I made it home alive
So you said that only proves that I'm insane

You may be right, I may be crazy
But it just may be a lunatic you're looking for
Turn out the light, Don't try to save me
You may be wrong for all I know
But you may be right

Remember how I found you there
Alone in your electric chair
I told you dirty jokes until you smiled
You were lonely for a man
I said "Take me as I am"
'Cause you might enjoy some madness for awhile

Now think of all the years you tried to
Find someone to satisfy you
I might be as crazy as you say
If I'm crazy then it's true
That it's all because of you
And you wouldn't want me any other way

You may be right, I may be crazy
But it just may be a lunatic you're looking for
It's too late to fight, It's too late to change me
You may be wrong for all I know
But you may be right

You may be right, I may be crazy
But it just may be a lunatic you're looking for
Turn out the light, Don't try to save me
You may be wrong for all I know
But you may be right
You may be wrong but you may be right
You may be wrong but you may be right

Last Night

Last nite she said 
Oh baby I feel so down 
When you turn me off 
When I feel left out 
So I, I turned round
Oh baby don't care no more
I know this for sure 
I'm walking out that door

Well I've been in town for just about fifteen minutes now 
And baby I feel so down
And I don't know why
I've been walking for miles

And people they don't understand
Your girlfriends they can't understand
Your grandsons they won't understand
On top of this I ain't ever gonna understand

Last nite she said
Oh baby don't feel so down
When you turn me off
When I feel left out
So I, I turned round, 
Oh baby gonna be alright
It was a great big lie
Coz I left that night
Yeah

Oh people they don't understand
No girlfriends they don't understand
In spaceships they won't understand
And me I ain't ever gonna understand

Last nite she said 
Oh baby I feel so down 
She could turn me off
When I feel left out
So I turned round
Oh little girl I don't care no more
I know it's for sure
I'm walking out that door, yeah

Girls

Girls, all I really want is girls, And in the morning, it's girls

'Cause in the evening, it's girls

I like the way that they walk

And it's chill to hear them talk

And I can always make them smile

From White Castle to the Nile
Back in the day

There was this girl around the way

She liked my homepiece MCA

He said he would not give her play
I asked him, "Please?" he said, "You may"

Her pants were tight and that's ok

If she would dance, I would DJ

We took a walk down to the bay
I hope she'll say"Hey

me and you should hit the hay"

I aksed her out she said, "No way!"

I shoulda probably guessed her gay
So I broke North with no delay

I heard she moved real far away

That was two years ago this May

I seen her just the other day

Jockin' Mike D, to my dismay
Girls, to do the dishes

Girls, to clean up my room

Girls, to do the laundry

Girls, and in the bathroom
Girls, that's all I really want is girls

Two at a time, I want girls

With new wave hairdos, I want girls

I ought to whip out my girls

girls, girls, girls

Girls, girls, girls, girls, girls, girls, girls, girls, girls, girls

Here Comes Your Man

outside there's a box car waiting
outside the family stew
out by the fire breathing
outside we wait 'til face turns blue
i know the nervous walking
i know the dirty beard hangs
out by the box car waiting
take me away to nowhere plains
there is a wait so long
here comes your man

big shake on the box car moving
big shake to the land that's falling down
is a wind makes a palm stop blowing
a big, big stone fall and break my crown
there is a wait so long
you'll never wait so long
here comes your man
there is a wait so long
you'll never wait so long
here comes your man

Fight For Your Right

Kick it!

You wake up late for school man you don't wanna go
You ask you mom, "Please?" but she still says, "No!"
You missed two classes and no homework
But your teacher preaches class like you're some kind of jerk

You gotta fight for your right to party

You pops caught you smoking and he said, "No way!"
That hypocrite smokes two packs a day
Man, living at home is such a drag
Now your mom threw away your best porno mag (Busted!)

You gotta fight for your right to party

Don't step out of this house if that's the clothes you're gonna wear
I'll kick you out of my home if you don't cut that hair
Your mom busted in and said, "What's that noise?"
Aw, mom you're just jealous it's the Beastie Boys!

You gotta fight for your right to party

You gotta fight for your right to party

"Rock And Roll"   Led Zeppelin

It's been a long time since I rock and rolled, 
It's been a long time since I did the Stroll. 
Ooh, let me get it back, let me get it back, 
Let me get it back, baby, where I come from. 
It's been a long time, been a long time, 
Been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time. Yes it has.  (drums play through like intro)

It's been a long time since the book of love, 
I can't count the tears of a life with no love. 
Carry me back, carry me back, 
Carry me back, baby, where I come from. 
It's been a long time, been a long time, 
Been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time. (Break on 1st lonely, 4 count, come in on the 1)

 

screaming OH, OH2 tx through progression, 2nd time more guitar solo

Break at end. Guitar triplets only for 4 count, drums come in on the 1

Seems so long since we walked in the moonlight, 
Making vows that just can't work right. 
Open your arms, opens your arms, 
Open your arms, baby, let my love come running in. 
It's been a long time, been a long time, 
Been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time. (Break on 1st lonely, 4 count, come in on the 1)

 

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,

Ooh yeah, Ooh yeah, Ooh yeah, Ooh yeah,

It's been a long time, been a long time, 
Been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time. (full break, drum solo after “time”)

"Take the Money and Run  Steve Miller Band

 

This here's a story about Billy Joe and Bobbie Sue
Two young lovers with nothin' better to do
Than sit around the house, get high, and watch the tube
And here is what happened when they decided to cut loose

They headed down to, ooh, old El Paso
That's where they ran into a great big hassle
Billy Joe shot a man while robbing his castle
Bobbie Sue took the money and run

Go on take the money and run
Go on take the money and run

Go on take the money and run
Go on take the money and run

Billy Mack is a detective down in Texas
You know he knows just exactly what the facts is
He ain't gonna let those two escape justice
He makes his livin' off of the people's taxes

Bobbie Sue, whoa, whoa, she slipped away
Billy Joe caught up to her the very next day
They got the money, hey, You know they got away
They headed down south and they're still running today

Singin' go on take the money and run
Go on take the money and run
Go on take the money and run
Go on take the money and run

X4 (no vox)
Yeah, yeah, Go on take the money and run
Go on take the money and run
Go on take the money and run

Got to Get Better in a Little While  Eric Clapton

Don't you know what's wrong with me?
I'm seeing things I don't want to see.
Sniffing things that ain't no good for me.
I'm going down fast, won't you say a prayer for me?

It's got to get better in a little while.
It's got to get better in a little while.
It's got to get better in a little while.
It's got to get better in a little while.

The sun's got to shine on my guitar someday.

Revolution all across the land.
Just like Sly, you got to take a stand.
Please don't hurt nobody, don't knock them down;
Give them a helping hand to get off the ground.

Still one thing that you can do;
Fall down on your knees and pray.
I know the Lord's gonna answer you.
Don't do it tomorrow, do it today

Everybody Needs Somebody

 

We're so glad to see so many of you lovely people here tonight,

and we would especially like to welcome all the
representatives of Illinois' Law Enforcement Community

who have chosen to join us here in the Palace Hotel Ballroom at this time.

We do sincerely hope you'll all enjoy the show,
and please remember people, that no matter who you are, and what you do

to live, thrive and survive, there are still some things that make us all the same.

You, me, them, everybody, everybody.

Everybody needs somebody; Everybody needs somebody to love

Someone to Love (someone to love)

Sweetheart to miss (sweetheart to miss) Sugar to kiss (sugar to kiss)
I need you you you, I need you you you,
I need you you you

In the morning. When my soul's on fire

Sometimes I feel;  I feel a little sad inside
When my baby mistreats me
I never never never have a place to hide. I need you

Horns x 8


Sometimes I feel;  I feel a little sad inside
When my baby mistreats me I never never never have a place to hide
I need you you you,  I need you you you
I need you you you,  I need you you you,  I need you

You know people when you do find that somebody
Hold that woman, hold that man
Love him, please him, squeeze her, please her,
Hold, squeeze and please that person, give 'em all your love
Signify your feelings with every gentle caress
Because it's so important to have that special somebody
to hold, kiss, miss, squeeze and please

Everybody needs somebody;  Everybody needs somebody to love
Someone to love,   Sweetheart to miss,   Sugar to kiss
I need you you you,  I need you you you,  I need you you you I need you you you,

I need you you you,  I need you you you,  I need you you you I need you you you,

In the Morning. When my soul’s on fire. When there ain’t no woman around,

I need you you you you ; I need you you you you;  I need you you you   Aaaaaaah I need you.

Dancing in the moonlight               Thin Lizzie

 

When I passed you in the doorway    Well you took me with a glance

I should have took that last bus home    But I asked you for a dance

 

Now we go steady to the pictures   I always get chocolate stains on my pants

And my father he's going crazy    He says I'm living in a trance

 

But I'm dancing in the moonlight  It's caught me in its spotlight

It's alright, alright

Dancing in the moonlight  On this long hot summer night

 

It's three o'clock in the morning   And I'm on the streets again

I disobeyed another warning   I should have been in by ten

 

Now I won't get out until Sunday  I'll have to say I stayed with friends

But it's a habit worth forming   If it means to justify the end

 

Dancing in the moonlight   It's caught me in its spotlight

It's alright, alright

Dancing in the moonlight   On this long hot summer night

 

And I'm walking home   The last bus has long gone

But I'm dancing in the moonlight

 

Dancing in the moonlight  It's caught me in its spotlight

It's alright, alright

Dancing in the moonlight  On this long hot summer night

 

Dancing in the moonlight (I'm dancing in the moonlight)

It's caught me in its spotlight (It's caught me in in it's spotlight)

Dancing in the moonlight (dancing in the moonlight)

On this long hot summer night (It's got me hot)

 

Dancing in the moonlight (I'm dancing in the moonlight)

It's caught me in its spotlight (It's caught me alright alright alright)

Dancing in the moonlight

On this long hot summer night (It's so got them hot)

 

Dancing in the moonlight (I'm dancing)

It's caught me in its spotlight (I'm still dancing)

Dancing in the moonlight (I'm dancing in the moonlight)

On this long hot summer night...

She Talks to Angels

 

She never mentions the word addiction

In certain company.

Yes, she'll tell you she's an orphan

After you meet her family.

 

She paints her eyes as black as night now.

I got my mind set on you  x4

But it's gonna take money, A whole lot of spending money
It's gonna take plenty of money, To do it right child

It's gonna take time, A whole lot of precious time
It's gonna take patience and time, um
To do it, to do it, to do it, to do it, to do it
To do it right child

I got my mind set on you x4

And this time I know it's for real
The feelings that I feel
I know if I put my mind to it
I know that I really can do it

(BREAK)

I got my mind set on you, Set on you
I got my mind set on you, Set on you

But it's gonna take money, A whole lot of spending money

Just What I needed

 

I don't mind you comin' here

And wastin' all my time

'Cause when you're standin', oh so near

I kinda lose my mind

 

It's not the perfume that you wear

It's not the ribbons in your hair

And I don't mind you comin' here

And wastin' all my time

 

Keyboard (like verse)

 

I don't mind you hangin' out

And talkin' in your sleep

It doesn't matter where you've been

As long as it was deep, yeah

 

You always knew to wear it well and

You look so fancy I can tell

I don't mind you hangin' out

And talkin' in your sleep

 

I guess, you're just what I needed, I needed someone to feed

I guess, you're just what I needed, I needed someone to bleed

 

Guitar (like chorus)

 

I don't mind you comin' here

And wastin' all my time, time

'Cause when you're standin', oh so near

I kinda lose my mind, yeah

 

It's not the perfume that you wear

It's not the ribbons in your hair

I don't mind you comin' here

And wastin' all my time

 

I guess, you're just what I needed, I needed someone to feed

I guess, you're just what I needed, I needed someone to bleed

 

I guess, you're just what I needed, I needed someone to feed

I guess, you're just what I needed, I needed someone to bleed

Yeah, yeah, so bleed me

 

Keyboard (like Chorus)

You're just what I needed

You're just what I needed

You're just what I needed

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Already Gone

 

Well, I heard some people talkin' just the other day

And they said you were gonna put me on a shelf

But let me tell you I got some news for you

And you'll soon find out it's true

And then you'll have to eat your lunch all by yourself

 

'Cause I'm already gone

And I'm feelin' strong

I will sing this vict'ry song, woo, hoo,hoo,woo,hoo,hoo

 

The letter that you wrote me made me stop and wonder why

But I guess you felt like you had to set things right

Just remember this, my girl, when you look up in the sky

You can see the stars and still not see the light (that's right)

 

And I'm already gone

And I'm feelin' strong

I will sing this vict'ry song, woo, hoo,hoo,  woo, hoo,hoo

 

Guitar (like verse)

 

Well I know it wasn't you who held me down

Heaven knows it wasn't you who set me free

So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains

And we never even know we have the key

 

But me, I'm already gone

And I'm feelin' strong

I will sing this vict'ry song

'Cause I'm already gone

 

Yes, I'm already gone (Key change – hold C)

And I'm feelin' strong

I will sing this vict'ry song

'Cause I'm already gone

 

Yes, I'm already gone

Already gone

All right, nighty-night

Ain’t Too proud to beg

 

I know you wanna leave me,

But I refuse to let you go

If I have to beg and plead for your sympathy,

I don't mind cause' you mean that much to me

 

Ain't too proud to beg, sweet darlin'

Please don't leave me girl, don't you go

Ain't to proud to plead, baby, baby

Please don't leave me, girl, don't you go

 

Now I heard a cryin' man,

Is half a man with no sense of pride

But if I have to cry to keep you,

I don't mind weepin' if it'll keep you by my side

 

Ain't to proud to beg, sweet darlin'

Please don't leave me girl, don't you go

Ain't to proud to plead, baby, baby

Please don't leave me girl, don't you go

 

If I have to sleep on your doorstep

All night and day just to keep you from walkin' away

Let your friends laugh, even this I can stand

Because I want to keep you any way I can

 

Ain't too proud to beg, sweet darlin'

Please don't leave me girl, don't you go

Ain't to proud to plead, baby, baby

Please don't leave me girl, don't you go

 

Guitar (like verse)

 

Ain't too proud to beg, sweet darlin'  (chorus on Rolling Stones version only)

Please don't leave me girl, don't you go

Ain't to proud to plead, baby, baby

Please don't leave me girl, don't you go

 

Now I've gotta love so deep in the pit of my heart

And each day it grows more and more

I'm not ashamed to come and plead to you baby

If pleadin' keeps you from walkin' out that door

 

Ain't too proud to beg, you know it sweet darlin'

Please don't leave me girl, don't you go

Ain't to proud to plead, baby, baby

Please don't leave me girl, don't you go

 

Baby, baby, baby, baby (sweet darling)

Badge

 

Thinkin' 'bout the times you drove in my car.

Thinkin' that I might have drove you too far.

And I'm thinkin' 'bout the love that you laid on my table.

 

I told you not to wander 'round in the dark.

I told you 'bout the swans, that they live in the park.

Then I told you 'bout our kid, now he's married to mabel.

 

Yes, I told you that the light goes up and down.

Don't you notice how the wheel goes 'round?

And you better pick yourself up from the ground

Before they bring the curtain down,

Yes, before they bring the curtain down.

 

Guitar x 8

 

Talkin' 'bout a girl that looks quite like you.

She didn't have the time to wait in the queue.

She cried away her life since she fell off the cradle.
