ROLLING STONES

YOU CAN'T ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WANT

I saw her today at the reception

A glass of wine in her hand

I knew she was gonna meet her connection

At her feet was footloose man

You can't always get what you want

You can't always get what you want

You can't always get what you want

But if you try sometimes well you might find

You get what you need

I went down to the demonstration

To get my fair share of abuse

Singing, "We're gonna vent our frustration

If we don't we're gonna blow a 50-amp fuse"

You can't always get what you want

You can't always get what you want

You can't always get what you want

But if you try sometimes well you just might find

You get what you need

I went down to the Chelsea drugstore

To get your prescription filled

I was standing in line with Mr. Jimmy

And man,…

EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER

LUCKY MAN

He had white horses

And ladies by the score

All dressed in satin

And waiting by the door

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

White lace and feathers

They made up his bed

A gold covered mattress

On which he was led

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

He went to fight wars

For his country and his king

Of his honor and his glory

The people would sing

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

A bullet had found him

His blood ran as he cried

No money could save him

So he laid down and he died

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

 

ROLLING STONES

YOU BETTER MOVE ON

You ask me to give up the hand of the girl I love

You tell me, I'm not the man she's worthy of

But who are you to tell her who to love?

That's up to her, yes, and the Lord above

You better move on

Well I know you can buy her fancy clothes and diamond rings

But I believe she's happy with me without those things

Still you beg me to set her free

But my friend, that will never be

You better move on

Now I don't blame you for loving her

But can't you understand, man, she's my girl

And I, never never ever gonna let her go

Cuz I, yeah, I love her so

I think you better go now , I'm getting mighty mad

You ask me to give up the only love I've ever had

Maybe I would, oh, but I love her so

I'm never gonna let her go

You better move on

ROB HOEKE

DRINKING ON MY BED

I'm drinking on my bed 'till late just longing for relief

I'm drinking 'till I'm high, escaping from my grief

Staring in my glass I see you lay down in the grass, the eyes still closed

Then you're back a shade, of what you were, the eyes wide open like a ghost.

Dreadful creatures try to break my heart and try to make me mad

Make me lose my mind, the aches are much to bad..

(instrumental)

I don't know how long I'm here, I'm not aware of time

Hide away my face, I'm whispering your name

Trying to forget whatever, that we ever loved, we even met

Trying not to think about your knocking on the door of your sick mind

So don't knock on my door, I won't be coming again

Don't weep over me, my new soul knows no pain

I'm drinking on my bed 'till late just longing for relief

I'm drinking 'till I'm high, escaping from my grief

Dreadful creatures try to break my heart and try to make me mad

Make me lose my mind, the aches are much to bad..

Trying to forget whatever, that we ever loved, we even met

Trying not to think about your knocking on the door of your sick mind

But let's dance

But let's dance

PAUL MCCARTNEY AND WINGS

MULL OF KINTYRE

Mull of kintyre

Oh mist rolling in from the sea,

My desire is always to be here

Oh mull of kintyre

Far have i traveled and much have i seen

Dark distant mountains with valleys of green.

Past painted deserts the sunset's on fire

As he carries me home to the mull of kintyre.

Mull of kintyre

Oh mist rolling in from the sea,

My desire is always to be here

Oh mull of kintyre

Sweep through the heather like deer in the glen

Carry me back to the days i knew then.

Nights when we sang like a heavenly choir

Of the life and the time of the mull of kintyre.

Mull of kintyre

Oh mist rolling in from the sea,

My desire is always to be here

Oh mull of kintyre

Smiles in the sunshine

And tears in the rain

Still take me back to where my memories remain

Flickering embers growing higher and higher

As they carry me back to the mull of kintyre

Mull of kintyre

Oh mist rolling in from the sea,

My desire is always to be here

Oh mull of kintyre

Mull of kintyre

Oh mist rolling in from the sea,

My desire is always to be here

Oh mull of kintyre

GENE PITNEY

TWENTY FOUR HOURS FROM TULSA

Dearest darling

I had to write to say that I won't be home any more

For something happened to me

While I was driving home and I'm not the same any more

Oh, I was only twenty four hours from Tulsa

Ah, only one day away from your arms

I saw a welcoming light

And stopped to rest for the night

And that is when I saw her

As I pulled in outside of the small hotel she was there

And so I walked up to her

Asked where I could get something to eat and she showed me where

Oh, I was only twenty four hours from Tulsa

Ah, only one day away from your arms

She took me to the café

I asked her if she would stay

She said, "Okay"

Oh, I was only twenty four hours from Tulsa

Ah, only one day away from your arms

The jukebox started to play

And night time turned into day

As we were dancing closely

All of a sudden I lost control as I held her charms

And I caressed her, kissed her

Told her I'd die before I would let her out of my arms

Oh, I was only twenty four hours from Tulsa

Ah, only one day away from your arms

I hate to do this to you

But I love somebody new

What can I do

When I can never, never, never go home again?

TINA TURNER

BETTER BE GOOD TO ME

A prisoner of your love

Entangled in your web

Hot whispers in the night

I'm captured by your spell

Oh yes I'm touched by this show of emotion

Should I be fractured by your lack of devotion

Should I, should I?

You better be good to me

That's how it's gotta be now

'Cause I don't have no use

For what you loosely call the truth

And you better be good to me

C'mon c'mon be good to me

I think it's all so right

That we don't need to fight

We stand face to face

And you present your case

Yes I know you keep telling me that you love me

And I really do want to believe

But did you think I'd just accept you in blind faith

Oh sure babe, anything to please you

But you better be good to me

That's how it's gotta be now

'Cause I don't have the time

For your over loaded lines

And you better be good to me

Be good to me

And I really don't see why it's so hard to be good to me

And you know, I don't understand what's your plan, that you can't be good to me

Why can't you be, good to me

Be good, be good to me

PINK FLOYD

COMFORTABLY NUMB

Hello,

Is there anybody in there?

Just nod if you can hear me.

Is there anyone at home?

Come on now

I hear you're feeling down

Well, I can ease your pain

And get you on your feet again

Relax

I'll need some information first

Just the basic facts

Can you show me where it hurts?

There is no pain, you are receding

A distant ship smoke on the horizon

You are only coming through in waves

Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying

When I was a child I had a fever

My hands felt just like two balloons

Now I've got that feeling once again

I can't explain, you would not understand

This is not how I am

I have become comfortably numb

I have become comfortably numb

O.K.

Just a little pin prick

There'll be no more aaaaaaaah!

But you may feel a little sick

Can you stand up?

I do believe it's working, good

That'll keep you going through the show

Come on, it's time to go.

There is no pain you are receding

A distant ship smoke on the horizon

You are only coming through in waves

Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying

When I was a child

I caught a fleeting glimpse

Out of the corner of my eye

I turned to look but it was gone

I cannot put my finger on it now

The child is grown

The dream is gone

I have become comfortably numb.

ANYONE WHO HAD A HEART

Anyone who ever loved

Could look at me

And know that I love you

Anyone who ever dreamed

Could look at me

And know I dream of you

Knowing I love you so

Anyone who had a heart

Would take me in his arms and love me, too

You couldn't really have a heart

And hurt me like you hurt me

And be so untrue

What am I to do?

Every time you go away

I always say

"This time it's goodbye, dear"

Loving you the way I do

I take you back

Without you I'd die, dear

Knowing I love you so

Anyone who had a heart

Would take me in his arms and love me, too

DUNCAN BROWNE

THE WILD PLACES

A prima donna, slipped into her leather

But she was restless

She knew it in her heart of hearts

She said: "Tonight you'd better pull yourself together

Because tonight I'm gonna pull myself apart!"

Out on the streets

Everyone is searchin' for a thrill

But she's the only one that's out there

Really dressed to kill

And she said: "Listen to me, it's not a tragedy

This time I'm gettin' through

And now there's something you can do for me!

And oh, oh, take me to the wild places

And let me show you what the night is for

'Cos I don't wanna dream

I wanna set the wheels in motion

I don't wanna see your eyes across a dancin' floor"

TV angel with her eyes full of smoke

Gazin' at the hero, he's so mucho macho

He shrugs, he says: "This must be some kind of joke"

As she pulls on his cigarette

And loves him to distraction

But she cries, "I don't wanna feel like a machine

I'm not the only one who wants to feel the in-between

That's why I'm deep into this state of fascination

That's why I've lost the art of conversation

And oh, oh, take me to the wild places

If you wanna see what's really in my soul

But you'd better keep your eye on where my pretty face is

'Cos in the heat of the moment I just lose control

In the heat of the moment, I just lose control!"

Eyes out of focus, the sharpening of blades

The sad tension, reek of patchouli

Even the Jokers are dealin' in Spades

It's one dimension, it's all so passé

Just then a voice said:

"Honey, it's too late to change your mind"

Her face tightened

I could see she'd found a new design

And she said: "Listen to me, it's just a fantasy

This time I'm comin' through

And now there's something you can do for me...

And oh, oh, take me to the wild places

And let me show you what the night is for

"I don't wanna dream, I wanna set the wheels in motion

I wanna see your eyes across a dancin' floor

'Ooh lovers set the wheels in motion

In the heat of the moment I just lose control.

MICK JAGGER

ANGEL IN MY HEART

Play upon your heart strings to me

I will sing a strange melody

Dance with me a magic ballet

Stay with me 'til night turns to day

Let me in your dreams

Angel in my heart

Angel in my heart

By a pool of darkening dreams

Love is slowly twisting downstream

Underneath the tortuos trees

Out into the sad, silent seas

Lock me in your arms

Angel in my heart

Angel in my heart

How can I feel, how can I feel love when you're gone

How much sin, how much can true forgiving cost

I'm in your skin, I want to win back what I've lost

How can I feel, how can I feel love when you're gone

I'm in your skin, I want to win back what I've lost

I can feel the salt on my skin

I can hear the birds on the wing

I can smell the wood on the fire

I can see the smoke of desire

Let me in your dreams

Angel in my heart

Angel in my heart

SATISFACTION

ROLLING STONES

I can't get no satisfaction, I can't get no satisfaction.

'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try.

I can't get no, I can't get no.

When I'm drivin' in my car, and the man come on the radio.

He's tellin' me more and more about some useless information.

Supposed to fire my imagination.

I can't get no. Oh, no, no, no. Hey, hey, hey.

That's what I say.

I can't get no satisfaction, I can't get no satisfaction.

'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try.

I can't get no, I can't get no.

When I'm watchin' my TV and a man comes on and tell me.

How white my shirts can be.

But, he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't smoke.

The same cigarettes as me.

I can't get no. Oh, no, no, no. Hey, hey, hey.

That's what I say.

I can't get no satisfaction, I can't get no satisfaction.

'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try.

I can't get no, I can't get no.

When I'm ridin' round the world, and I'm doin' this and I'm signin' that.

And I'm tryin' to make some girl, who tells me.

Baby, better come back maybe next week.

'Cause you see I'm on a losing streak.

I can't get no. Oh, no, no, no. Hey, hey, hey.

That's what I say. I can't get no, I can't get no.

I can't get no satisfaction, no satisfaction.

No satisfaction, no satisfaction.

Cirrus Minor

Pink Floyd

In a churchyard by a river

Lazing in the haze of midday

Laughing in the grasses

And the graves

Yellow bird, you are not long

In singing and in flying on

In laughing and in leaving

Willow weeping in the water

Waving to the river daughters

Swaying in the ripples and the reeds

On a trip to Cirrus Minor

Saw a crater in the Sun

A thousand miles of moonlight later

Dear Mr. Fantasy

Traffic

Dear Mister Fantasy play us a tune

Something to make us all happy

Do anything take us out of this gloom

Sing a song, play guitar, make it snappy

You are the one who can make us all laugh

But doing that you break out in tears

Please don't be sad if it was a straight mind you had

We wouldn't have known you all these years

DAYS OF PEARLY SPENCER

 

A tenement, a dirty street

Walked and worn by shoeless feet

Inside it's long and so complete

Watched by a shivering sun

Old eyes in a small child's face

Watching as the shadows race

Through walls and cracks and leave no trace

And daylight's brightness shuns

The days of pearly spencer

The race is almost run

Nose pressed hard on frosted glass

Gazing as the swollen mass

On concrete fields where grows no grass

Stumbles blindly on

Iron trees smother the air

But withering they stand and stare

Through eyes that neither know nor care

Where the grass is gone

The days of pearly spencer

The race is almost run

Pearly where's your milk white skin

What's that stubble on your chin

It's buried in the rot gut gin

You played and lost not won

You played a house that can't be beat

Now look your head's bowed in defeat

You walked too far along the street

Where only rats can run

The days of pearly spencer

The race is almost run

The days of pearly spencer

The race is almost run

The race is almost run

A tenement, a dirty street

Remember worn and shoeless feet

Remember how you stood to beat

The way your life had gone

So pearly don't you shed more tears

For those best forgotten years

Those tenements are memories

Of where you've risen from

The days of pearly spencer

The race is almost won

TRAINS AND BOATS AND PLANES

BILLY J. KRAMER AND THE DAKOTAS

Trains and boats and planes

Were passing by

They mean a trip

To Paris or Rome

To someone else

But not for me

The trains and

The boats and planes

Took you away

Away from me

We were so in love

And high above

We had a star

To wish upon wish

When dreams came true

But not for me

The trains and the boats and planes

Took you away, away from me

Trains and boats and planes

Took you away

But every time I see them, I pray

And if my prayer can cross the sea

The trains and the boats and planes

Will bring you back

Back home to me

Mmm mmm mmm mmm

Mmm mmm mmm mmm...

RAIN

THE BEATLES

If the rain comes they run and hide their heads

They might as well be dead

If the rain comes, if the rain comes

When the sun shines they slip into the shade

(when the sun shines down)

And sip their lemonade

(when the sun shines down)

When the sun shines, when the sun shines

Rain, I don't mind

Shine, the weather's fine

I can show you that when it starts to rain

(when the rain comes down)

Everything's the same

(when the rain comes down)

I can show you, I can show you

Rain, I don't mind

Shine, the weather's fine

Can you hear me, that when it rains and shines

(when it rains and shines)

It's just a state of mind?

(when it rains and shines)

Can you hear me, can you hear me?

LOVE IS ALL AROUND

TROGGS

I feel it in my fingers, I feel it in my toes

Well love is all around me and so the feeling grows

It's written on the wind, it's everywhere I go

So if you really love me, come on and let it show

You know I love you, I always will

My mind's made up by the way that I feel

There's no beginning, there be no end

Cause on my love, you can depend

I see your face before me as I lay on my bed

I kinda get to thinking of all the things you said

You gave your promise to me and I gave mine to you

I need someone beside me in everything I do

You know I love you, I always will

My mind's made up by the way that I feel

There's no beginning, there be no end

Cause on my love, you can depend

It's written on the wind, it's everywhere I go

So if you really love me, come on and let it show

Come on and let it show

Come on and let it show

Come on and let it show

Come on and let it show

ACROSS THE UNIVERSE

THE BEATLES

Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup

They slither while they pass, they slip away across the universe

Pools of sorrow waves of joy are drifting through my opened mind

Possessing and caressing me

Jai guru deva om

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes

They call me on and on across the universe

Thoughts meander like a restless wind

Inside a letter box they

Tumble blindly as they make their way

Across the universe

Jai guru deva om

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Sounds of laughter shades of life are ringing

Through my open ears inciting and inviting me

Limitless undying love which shines around me like a million suns

And calls me on and on across the universe

Jai guru deva om

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Jai guru deva

REFUGEE

TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS

We got somethin', we both know it, we don't talk too much about it

Ain't no real big secret, all the same, somehow we get around it

Listen, it don't really matter to me baby

You believe what you want to believe, you see

You don't have to live like a refugee

(Don't have to live like a refugee)

Somewhere, somehow, somebody must have kicked you around some

Tell me why you want to lay there, revel in your abandon

Honey, it don't make no difference to me baby

Everybody has to fight to be free, you see

[Chorus:]

You don't have to live like a refugee

(Don't have to live like a refugee)

No baby you don't have to live like a refugee

(Don't have to live like a refugee)

Baby we ain't the first

I'm sure a lot of other lovers been burned

Right now it seems real to you, but it's

One of those things you gotta feel to be true

Somewhere, somehow, somebody must have kicked you around some

Who knows maybe you were kidnapped tied up,

Taken away and held for ransom

Honey, it don't make no difference to me, baby

Everybody has to fight to be free, you see
