I'M WONDERING
Henry Cosby, Sylvia Moy and Stevie Wonder
Jimmy was your sweetie pie
Your precious one
And I knew you used to love
The very ground he walked upon
One day, Jim's papa told him
Things were looking down
And they packed up everything
They owned and left this little old town
Each tear I dried for you,
The closer our lives grew,
I fell in love it's true
And you say you love me, too
JAZZ SOUL OF LITTLE
STEVIE WONDER
Well, don't you know I'm wondering
Little girl, I'm wondering
How can I make you love me
A little more than you loved him?
Ooh,Baby I'm wondering
Little girl, I'm wondering
How can I make you love me
A little more than you loved him?
Oh baby
But, baby I'm wondering
Little girl, I'm wondering
How can I make you love me
A little more than you loved him?
Oh baby I'm wondering,
Little girl, I'm wondering
How can I make you love me
A little more than you loved Jim?
The day you see his face again
Or hear his voice
I don't want to be a loser
If you have to make a choice
Like a puppet to a string
To you, girl, I'm attached
And I know I'd be in trouble
If he came and took you back
I feel so insecure
In my mind, I can picture
Losing you for sure
And the pain I can't endure
Oh baby I'm wondering
Little girl, I'm wondering
How can I make you love me
A little more than you loved him?
Oh baby I'm wondering,
Sure enough, I'm wondering
How can I make you love me
A little more than you loved Jim?
Ooh Baby
I can't stop loving you, baby,
I can't stop loving you , no
I can't stop loving you, baby
I feel so insecure
In my mind, I
Can picture
Losing you for sure
And the pain I can't endure
Baby, I'm worried,
Really, really worried
I wanna make you happy
Really truly happy
Oh baby I'm wondering,
Little girl, I'm wondering
How can I make you love me
A little more than you loved him?
Oh baby I'm wondering
Little girl, I'm wondering ...

UPTIGHT
CONTRACT ON LOVE
Lamont Dozier, Janie Bradford and Brian Holland
BLOWIN' IN THE WIND
Bob Dylan
How many roads must a man walk down before they
call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail before she
sleeps in the sand?
How many times must the canon balls fly before they're
forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.
How many years must a mountain exist before it is
washed to the sea?
How many years can some people exist before they're
allowed to be free?
How many times can a man turn his head and pretend
that he just doesn't see?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.
How many times must a man look up before he can see
the sky?
How many ears must one man have before he can hear
people cry?
How many deaths will it take till he knows that too
many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.
The answer is blowin' in the wind.
Baby, baby, sign my contract on love
Baby, baby, sign my contract on love
Baby, baby, sign my contract on love

HOLD ME
Hold me darling hold me
And I'll always be your, be your guy
Closer, baby come closer
Let me be the one that loves and be by your side
Why should you be lonely when I need you so
Give my arms a chance I know I'll never let go
So hold me, baby hold me
Say you'll never let me go
Why should you be lonely when I need you so
Give my arms a chance I know I'll never let go
So hold me, baby hold me
Say you'll never let me go
You know I love you so
I'll never-never let you go
I'll never let you go
Oh baby-baby, hold me
Why should we be apart
I'll never-never let you go
UPTIGHT (EVERYTHING’S
ALRIGHT)
Henry Cosby, Steveland Judkins and Sylvia Moy
Baby, ev'rything is all right, uptight, out of sight.
Baby, ev'rything is all right, uptight, out of sight.
I'm a poorman's son, from across the railroad tracks,
The only shirt I own is hangin' on my back,
But I'm the envy of ev'ry single guy
Since I'm the apple of my girl's eye.
When we go out stepping on the town for a while
My money's low and my suit's out of style,
But it's all right if my clothes aren't new
Out of sight because my heart is true.
She says baby ev'rything is alright, uptight, out of
sight.
Baby, ev'rything is alright, uptight, clean out of
sight.
I'm a pearl of a girl, I guess that's what you might say,
I guess her folks brought her up that way,
The right side of the tracks, she was born and raised
In a great big old house, full of butlers and maids.
No one is better than I, I know I'm just an average guy,
No football hero or smooth Don Juan,
Got empty pockets, you see I'm a poorman's son.
She says give her the things that money can buy
But I'll never, never make my baby cry,
And it's all right, what I can't do,
Out of sight because my heart is true,
She says baby ev'rything is alright, uptight, clean
out of sight.
Baby, ev'rything is alright, uptight, clean out of
sight.
Baby, ev'rything is alright, uptight, ah ah ah ah,
Baby, ev'rything is alright, uptight, clean out of
sight.
Baby, ev'rything is alright, uptight, clean out of
sight.

Ah, I was made to love her,
Built my world all around her,
Hey, hey, hey.
Oo baby, I was made to please her,
You know Stevie ain't gonna leave her, no,
Hey, hey, hey.
Oo wee baby, my baby loves me,
My baby needs me,
Hey, hey, hey.
OO my baby loves me....
SOMEDAY AT
CHRISTMAS
I WAS MADE TO LOVE
SOMEDAY AT CHRISTMAS
HER
Ron Miller and Bryan Wells
I WAS MADE TO LOVE HER
Henry Cosby, Lula Mae Hardaway, Sylvia Moy and Stevie Wonder
I was born in Lil' Rock,
Had a childhood sweetheart,
We were always hand in hand.
I was hightop shoes and shirt tails,
Suzy was in pig tails,
I know I loved her even then.
You know my papa disapproved it,
My mama boohooed it,
But I told them time and time again,
"Don't you know I was made to love her,
Built a world all around her"
Yah! Hey, hey, hey.
She's been my inspiration,
Showed appreciation
For the love I gave her through the years.
Like a sweet magnolia tree
My love blossmed tenderly,
My life grew sweeter through the years.
I know that my baby loves me,
My baby needs me,
That's why we made it through the years.
I was made to love her,
Worship and adore her,
Hey, hey, hey.
All through thick and thin
Our love just won't end,
'Cause I love my baby, love my baby. Ah!
Someday at Christmas men won't be boys
Playing with bombs like kids play with toys
One warm December our hearts will see
A world where men are free
Someday at Christmas there'll be no wars
When we have learned what Christmas is for
When we have found what life's really worth
There'll be peace on earth
Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime
Someday at Christmas we'll see a Man
No hungry children, no empty hand
One happy morning people will share
Our world where people care
Someday at Christmas there'll be no tears
All men are equal and no men have fears
One shinning moment my heart ran away
From our world today
Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime
Someday at Christmas man will not fail
Take hope because your love will prevail
Someday a new world that we can start
With hope in every heart
Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime
Someday at Christmastime
THE CHRISTMAS SONG
Mel Torme and Robert Wells
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
and folks dressed up like Eskimos
Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
Help to make the season bright
Tiny tots with their eyes all a-glow
Will find it hard sleeping tonight
They know that Santa's on his way
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
and ev'ry Mother's child is gonnna spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly
And so I'm offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it's been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you
(Harmonica solo)
And so I'm offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although It's been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you
BEDTIME FOR TOYS
Ron Miller and Orlando Murden
Close your eyes, beddy bye tin soldier,
Mommy says that it's time for sleep,
If my folks were wiser and older,
They'd know kids and toys don't need sleep.
Don't be bad little cotton dolly,
See how nice Mickey Mouse sleeps now?
Even my brass drummer boy has stopped all his noise,
Cause he knows it's past bedtime for toys.
(Speaking)
Ya know, every Christmas Santa Claus goes all over the
world with his reindeer,
sled, and a big bag of toys and he'll come to your house
this year too.
But sometimes, just sometimes, he doesn't have enough
time to see every little boy and girl because the world is
so big.
So maybe we should sing a song for all the children that
Santa didn't visit.
Bless the child who has no tin soldier,
No brass drummer boy to put to bed.
He will still grow wiser and older,
Loving one small rag doll instead.
He won't have a cotton dolly,
Mickey Mouse won't come to his house.
Hold that rag doll to your heart, nothing can destroy
The beauty one shall find in one small toy.
My baby loves me,
My baby needs me,
And I know I ain't going nowhere.
I was knee high to a chicken
When that love bug bit me,
I had the fever with each passing year.
Oh, even if the mountain tumbles,
If this whole world crumbles,
By her side I'll still be standing there.
'Cause I was made to love her,
I was made to live for her, yeah!

SYLVIA
MR. TAMBOURIN MAN
Henry Cosby, Sylvia Moy and Stevie Wonder
Bob Dylan
Whoa, oh, oh, yeah
Mmm, hmm Sylvia
You know you're getting to me now
Mmm, mmm, mmm, Sylvia
You gently touched my heart somehow
Yesterday you made me happy as a child at play
Just like the summer sun that warms my heart
And move on, now you are gone
Whoa, oh, oh, Sylvia
You're everything that I adore
That sweet song, that caught a spark in me more
Tenderly that's how you whisper that you loved me
As if a raindrop kissed my ear and disappeared, now
you are gone
DOWN TO EARTH
Oh, oh, oh, yeah
You know I love my little Sylvia
Whoa, oh, oh, yeah
And yesterday I feel in love with you all the way
Tenderly you lit a spark in my heart, now you are gone
HEY LOVE
Clarence Paul, M. Broudnax and Stevie Wonder
Hey love
May I have a word with you?
I'd like to tell you, yeah
Just what I've been going through
My nights are so long
As I watch each hour go by
Hoping and praying
That someday I will be your guy
Hey love
You're my one true soul desire
Hey love, baby
Can you feel this burning fire
Hey love
There's one thing I find so true
When you are near me
I go through a change or two
Hearing your footsteps
I hurry to catch your eye
And I stand there waiting, yeah
But girl, you just walk on by
Say love
With a cold heart you are dealing
Hey love, yeah
It's an awful hurting feeling
Hey love
Don't pass me without some sign
Just look me over, yeah
I want to change your mind
Mmm, hmm, Sylvia
I gently miss Sylvia
I'm crazy 'bout ya, Sylvia
You know I love my little Sylvia
A PLACE IN THE SUN
Ron Miller and Bryan Wells
Like a long lonely stream
I keep runnin' towards a dream
Movin' on, movin' on
Like a branch on a tree
I keep reachin' to be free
Movin' on, movin' on
'Cause there's a place in the sun
Where there's hope for ev'ryone
Where my poor restless heart's gotta run
There's a place in the sun
And before my life is done
Got to find me a place in the sun
Like an old dusty road
I get weary from the load
Movin' on, movin' on
Like this tired troubled earth
I've been rollin' since my birth
Movin' on, movin' on
There's a place in the sun
Where there's hope for ev'ryone
Where my poor restless heart's gotta run
There's a place in the sun
And before my life is done
Got to find me a place in the sun
You know when times are bad
And you're feeling sad
I want you to always remember
Hey Mr. Tambourine Man play a song for me
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to
Hey Mr. Tambourine Man play a song for me
In a jingle-jangle morning I'll come following you
Though I know that evening's empire has returned into
sand
Vanished from my hand left me blindly here to stand
but still not sleeping
My weariness amazes me I'm branded on my feet
I have no one to meet and the ancient empty street's too
dead for dreaming
Hey Mr. Tambourine Man play a song for me
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to
Hey Mr. Tambourine Man play a song for me
In a jingle-jangle morning I'll come following you
Take me on a trip upon your magic swirlin' ship
My senses have been stripped my hands can't feel to
grip
My toes too numb to step wait only for my boot heels to
be wanderin'
I'm ready to go anywhere I'm ready for to fade
Into my own parade cast your dancing spell my way I
promise to go under it
Hey Mr. Tambourine Man play a song for me
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to
Hey Mr. Tambourine Man play a song for me
In a jingle-jangle morning I'll come following you
Though you might hear laughin' spinnin' swingin' madly
across the sun
It's not aimed at anyone it's just escapin' on the run
And but for the sky there are no fences facing
And if you hear vague traces of skippin' reels of rhyme
To your tambourine in time it's just a ragged clown
behind
I wouldn't pay it any mind it's just a shadow you're
seein' that he’s chasing
Hey Mr. Tambourine Man play a song for me
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to
Hey Mr. Tambourine Man play a song for me
In a jingle-jangle morning I'll come following you
Then take me disappearin' through the smoke rings of
my mind
Down the foggy ruins of time far past the frozen leaves
The haunted frightened trees out to the windy beach
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow
Yes to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand
waving free
Silhouetted by the sea circled by the circus sands
With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the
waves
Let me forget about today until tomorrow
Hey Mr. Tambourine Man play a song for me
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to
Hey Mr. Tambourine Man play a song for me
In a jingle-jangle morning I'll come following you
Yes, there's a place in the sun
Where there's hope for ev'ryone

FOR ONCE IN MY LFE
I DON'T KNOW WHY
For once in my life I have someone who needs me
Someone I've needed so long
For once, unafraid, I can go where life leads me
And somehow I know I'll be strong
I don't know why I love you
I don't know why I love you
I don't know why I love you
But I love you
For once I can touch what my heart used to dream of
Long before I knew
Someone warm like you
Would make my dreams come true
Always treat me like a fool
Kick me when I'm down that's your rule
I don't know why I love you
But I love you
Oh you never stop your
Cheatin ways with another guy
You laugh in my face
Lord how long must I be disgraced
Cause I love you

You and me baby, oh

But I love you baby
Oh darlin, darlin, darlin
For once in my life I won't let sorrow hurt me
Not like it hurt me before
For one, I have something I know won't desert me
I'm not alone anymore
For once, I can say, this is mine, you can't take it
As long as I know I have love, I can make it
For once in my life, I have someone who needs me
FOR ONCE IN MY LIFE

MY CHERIE AMOUR
Henry Cosby, Sylvia Moy and Stevie Wonder
La la la la la la, La la la la la la
My cherie amour, lovely as a summer day
My cherie amour, distant as the milky way
My cherie amour, pretty little one that I adore
You're the only girl my heart beats for
How I wish that you were mine
In a cafe or sometimes on a crowded street
I've been near you, but you never noticed me
My cherie amour, won't you tell me how could you
ignore
That behind that little smile I wore
How I wish that you were mine
La la la la la la, La la la la la la
La la la la la la, La la la la la la
MY CHERIE AMOUR
THE SHADOW OF YOUR
SMILE
The shadow of your smile when you are gone
Will color all my dreams and light the dawn
Look into my eyes, my love, and see
All the lovely things you are to me
Maybe someday, you'll see my face amoung the crowd
Maybe someday, I'll share your little distant cloud
Oh, cherie amour, pretty little one that I adore
You're the only girl my heart beats for
How I wish that you were mine
La la la la la la, La la la la la la
La la la la la la, La la la la la la
YESTERME YESTERYOU
YESTERDAY
What happened to the world we knew
When we would dream and scheme
And while the time away
Yesterme yesteryou yesterday
Where did it go that yester glow
When we could feel
The wheel of life turn our way
Yesterme yesteryou yesterday
I had a dream so did you life
Was warm and love was true
Two kids who followed all the rules
Yester folls and now
Now it seems those yester dreams
Were just a cruel
And foolish game we used to play
Yesterme yesteryou yesterday
When I recall what we had
I feel lost I feel sad with nothing but
The memory of yester love and now
Now it seems those yester dreams
Were just a cruel
And foolish game we had to play
Yesterme yesteryou yesterday
Yesterme yesteryou yesterday
Sing with me
Yesterme yesteryou yesterday
One more time.....
Our wistful little star was far too high
A teardrop kissed your lips andd so did I
Now when I remember spring
All the joy that love can bring
I will be remembering
The Shadow of your smile

WE CAN WORK IT OUT
Lennon / McCartny
Try to see it my way
Do I have to keep on talking till I can't go on
While you see it your way
Run the risk of knowing that our love may soon be gone
We can work it out
We can work it out
Think of what you're saying
You can get it wrong and still you think that it's alright
Think of what I'm saying
We can work it out and get it straight, or say good night
We can work it out
We can work it out
SIGNED, SEALED AND
DELIVERED
NEVER HAD A DREAM COME
TRUE
Henry Cosby, Sylvia Moy and Stevie Wonder
I never, never had a dream come true
In my every dream, I'm loved by you
And we're free as the wind
And true love is no sin
Therefore, men are men, not machines
I never, never had a dream come true
Without you, the world out there is painted shades of
blue
Since our roads never crossed
I work just to please the boss
Think I might as well get lost in my dreams
Do do do do do.........
I never, never had a dream come true
Yes, I'm gonna dream about you baby my whole life
through
Seems my folks are ashamed
Said I ain't worth a thing
But I'm glad I'm chained to my dreams
Do do do do do..........
Keep on dreamin'
Sing along with me
Keep on dreamin'
Life is very short, and there's no time
For fussing and fighting, my friend
I have always thought that it's a crime
So I will ask you once again.
Try to see it my way
Only time will tell if I am right or I am wrong
While you see it your way
There's a chance that we may fall apart before too long
We can work it out
We can work it out
Life is very short, and there's no time
For fussing and fighting, my friend
I have always thought that it's a crime
So I will ask you once again
Try to see it my way
Only time will tell if I am right or I am wrong
While you see it your way
There's a chance that we may fall apart before too long
We can work it out
We can work it out
SIGNED SEALED DELIVERED
Like a fool I went and stayed too long
Now I'm wondering if your love's still strong
Oo, baby, here I am, signed, sealed, delivered, I'm
yours!
Then that time I went and said goodbye
Now I'm back and not ashamed to cry
Oo, baby, here I am, signed, sealed, delivered, I'm
yours!
Here I am baby
Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I'm yours
(You got my future in your hands)
Here I am baby
Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I'm yours
(You got my future in your hands)
I've done a lot of foolish things
That I really didn't mean, didn't I?
Seen a lot of things in this old world
When I touch them, they mean nothing, girl
Oo, baby, here I am, signed, sealed, delivered, I'm
yours!
Oowee baby, you set my soul on fire
That's why I know you're my heart's only desire
Here I am baby
Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I'm yours
(You got my future in your hands)
Here I am baby
Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I'm yours
(You got my future in your hands)
HEAVEN HELP US ALL
Ron Miller
Heaven help the child who never had a home,
Heaven help the girl who walks the street alone
Heaven help the roses if the bombs begin to fall,
Heaven help us all.
Heaven help the black man if he struggles one more
day,
Heaven help the white man if he turns his back away,
Heaven help the man who kicks the man who has to
crawl,
Heaven help us all.
Heaven help us all, heaven help us all, help us all.
Heaven help us, Lord, hear our call when we call
Oh, yeah!
Heaven help the boy who won't reach twenty-one,
Heaven help the man who gave that boy a gun.
Heaven help the people with their backs against the
wall,
Lord, Heaven help us all.
Heaven help us all, heaven help us all, heaven help us
all, help us all.
Heaven help us, Lord, hear our call when we call.
Now I lay me down before I go to sleep.
In a troubled world, I pray the Lord to keep, keep hatred
from the mighty,
And the mighty from the small,
Heaven help us all.
Oh, oh, oh, yeah!
Heaven help us all.

DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR
Isolated junk yard
Letting out the garbage
Eating through the core of life
Sweet fragrance irritates
In a state room death awaits
Persecute your own self-pride
Suffocate the new high
Ride the thorny mule that cries
"Dig your grave and step right in"
Like a judas pay the price
30 pieces for a ride
Here's the fire take a chew
WHERE I'M COMING
FROM
LOOK AROUND
We are idle strangers
Married to our dangers
Into space we go to change our ways
Flying to our heavens
We are all together
Into hell we chase the light of day
Look around and you'll see
Ruins of the human history
Look around and you'll see
Time is only floating in your mind
You will find
Searching for time
Empty is your mind
We are charmed by living
Dazzled into giving
All the waste we plan to ignore
Coldness is the virtue
Measured by the untrue
Love is used for something but what for?
Look around and you'll see
Ruins of the human history
Look around and you'll see
Time is only floating in your mind
You will find
Searching for time
Empty is your mind
Look around
THINK OF ME AS YOUR
SOLDIER
Think of me as your soldier
The man whose life is for you
And the sweet love
That's greater than time has known
Think of me as your soldier
Through worlds of hate I'm for you
Tho' the darkness hits me ever hard
I'll stand long
And we'll be lovers seeing love by heaven's light
Lovers dreaming dreams each blessed by night
I will find the promised paradise
With you there I'll spend my life
Do yourself a favour
Educate your mind
Get yourself together
Hey there ain't much time
In our hearts there are no others
We are bound as two lovers
To give the great eternal love
Do yourself a favour
Educate your mind
Get yourself together
Hey there ain't much time
And we'll be lovers seeing love by heaven's light
Lovers dreaming dreams each blessed by night
I will find the promised paradise
With you there I'll spend my life
I'll spend my life
Shredded know-how give away
Species of the human race
Those funky winds of ups and downs
Hall of grit is known too well
Heaven still is your hell
Poison slowly slowly drowns
Think of me, girl, as your soldier
Through worlds of pain I'm for you
To give an endless love
To give an endless love
To give an endless love
To you....
Let the devil step right in
Lucifer's your only friend
Ain't a soul go'n pity you
IF YOU REALLY LOVE ME
Hurdly over time to death
With open arms it waits I bet
Don't you wish you could reach ground?
Do yourself a favour
Educate your mind
Get yourself together
Hey there ain't much time
Do yourself a favour
Educate your mind
Get yourself together
Hey there ain't much time
And if you really love me won't you tell me..
And if you really love me won't you tell me..
And if you really love me won't you tell me..
Then I won't have to be
Playing around
You call my name
Oooh so sweet
To make your kiss incomplete
When your mood is clear
You quickly change your ways
Then you say I'm untrue
What am I supposed to do
Be a fool who sits alone waiting for you
But if you really love me won't you tell me..
But if you really love me won't you tell me..
And if you really love me won't you tell me..
Then I won't have to be
Playing around
I see the light of your smile
Calling me all the while
You are saying baby
It's time to go...
First the feeling's alright
Then it's gone from sight
So I'm taking out this time to say
Oh if you really love me won't you tell me..
Oh if you really love me won't you tell me..
And if you really love me won't you tell me..
Then I won't have to be
Playing around no
Playing around no
Hey yeah
Goofin' around no
Oh baby
Playing around no
Let me know how you feel baby
Hey oh baby
Playing around no

I NEVER DREAMED YOU'D
LEAVE IN SUMMER
Syreeta Wright and Stevie Wonder
I never dreamed you'd leave in summer
I thought you would go then come back home
I thought the cold would leave by summer
But my quiet nights will be spent alone
You said there would be warm love in springtime
That was when you started to be cold
I never dreamed you'd leave in summer
But now I find myself all alone
You said then you'd be the life in autumn
Said you'd be the one to see the way
I never dreamed you'd leave in summer
But now I find my love has gone away
Why didn't you stay?
Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lord
Naw, Naw, Naw, Naw, Naw
Naw, Naw, Naw, Naw, Naw
TAKE UP A COURSE IN
HAPPINESS
When life reaches out and takes you
On an unpleasent ride
And your bridge of dreams comes
Tumblin' down
Don't let your bed of sorrow
Ever conquer your pride
Remember there's always a way out
Just take up a course in happiness
Take up a course to clear out your mind
You will show yourself how to smile
Take up a course in happiness
Take up a free instruction in life
You will learn how to smile
And when your optimism
Has a set back or two
And you feel all your tryin's in vain
(Your heart's in the rain)
Don't give up the hope that's due you
Just to study your doubt
Remember there's always a way out
Just take up a course in happiness
Take up a course to clear out your mind
You will show yourself how to smile
Take up a course in happiness
Take up a free instruction in life
You will learn how to smile
(Repeat three times)

Mary wants to be a superwoman
But is that really in her head
But I just want to live each day to love her
for what she is
Very well, and I think I can face-very well
Wish that you knew me too-very well
And I think I can cope with everything going
through your head
Mary wants to be a superwoman
And try to boss the bull around
But does she really think that she will get by with a
dream
My woman want to be a superwoman

But, very well, I believe I know you

going through your head
Very well, think that I know you too

When the summer came you were not around
Now the summer's gone and love cannot be found
Where were you when I needed you-last winter, my
love?
When the winter came you went further south
Parting from love's nest, leaving me in doubt
Where are you when I need you, like right now?
Our love is at an end
But you say now you have changed
But tomorrow will reflect love's past
When the winter came you were not around
Through the bitter winds love could not be found
Where were you when I needed you, last winter, my
love?
Oh I need you baby, I need you baby
Our love is at an end
But you say now you have changed,
But tomorrow will reflect love's past oh
Spring will fill the air and you will come around,
Well is it summer love that will let me down,
Where were you when I needed you, last winter, my
love?
La la la la la, la la la la la

Mary wants to be another movie star
But is that really in her mind
And all the things she wants to be
She needs to leave behind
But, very well, I believe I know you-very well
Wish that you knew me too-very well
And I think I can deal with everything going
through your head

GIRL BLUE
KEEP ON RUNNING
Hello Morning, good, good morning to the one I love,
Crystal Ringlets paint a picture of a gold sunrise above.
Some gonna get you
Some gonna grab you
Some gonna jump out of the bushes and grab you
Whole lotta folks, you better run faster.
Little girl you're sad,
Though all you have,
is visible to you.
Within your heart
there stays a part
That like the sky is blue.
Shifting breezes, grace the inner spectrum of your
glance.
Leaves on branches, for your pleasure, perform a
soothing dance.
Little girl it seems
in all my dreams
Your happiness is due.
But still they last,
their in your past
Events that make you blue.
Thoughts of love are in your mind,
Yet splintered hopes push them aside.
A look at life is what you need to try.
In an instant there'll be sunshine,
sprinkled every place.
Drops of rain will kiss the softness of your lovely face.
Little girl be fair
Show yourself you care,
let others care for you.
Before it's too late,
Cause time won't wait,
Till your heart's no longer blue.
Little girl be smart,
Don't break your own heart,
There is love waiting for you.
Before it's too late
Cause time won't wait,
Til your heart's no longer blue.
SEEMS SO LONG
Lady love and lady cared
but lady went away,
And left me all alone to suffer.
And now I feel it's not fair
for me to fall in love
The truth is the real me you must uncover.
Seems so long, since I've heard the sound
It's been so long, since I've trusted in someone else,
Had to see it all for myself,
It's been so long, that the world seems cold,
But I think it's time in my life to find myself again.
Lady loved and lady stayed,
Until she was too pleased
She knew I wouldn't leave for her to suffer.
I'd never make her suffer.
Now I believe you're just like me,
In that you understand,
And want me for your man to always love me.
You can believe it's seems so long, since I've
touched a wanting hand
Oh, it seems so long, since I've trusted in someone
else,
Had to see this world for myself,
And it's been so long that the world seems cold,
Now I think I've found someone to make me trust in
someone again.
I believe that I can trust in you.

EVIL
Evil, why have you engulfed so many hearts...Evil
Evil, why have you destroyed so many minds...
Leaving room for darkness, where lost dreams can hide
Evil, why do you infest our purest thoughts, with
hatred.
Evil, why have you stolen so much love...
Leaving everyone's emotions lost and wandering free.
Evil, why have you taken over God's children's
eyes...Evil
Evil, before they could really grow to see,
That your way, is not the way, to make, life what it
should be, Yea, yea, yea
Evil, why have you destroyed, you've destroyed so
much of this doggone world...Evil
Evil, oh, why have you broken so many homes...
Leaving everyone's emotions lost and wandering free.

I feel like I'm slippin' deeper,
Slippin' deeper into myself,
And I can't take it,
This stuff is scarin' me to death
Maybe your baby done made some other plans,
Kinda makin' me worried,
Maybe your baby done made some other plans
Little Sally Walker, sittin' in a saucer,
Checkin' out the guys that are passing by
(Background)...by, by, by, by...
Maybe your baby done made some other plans
Maybe your baby done made some other plans,
Not includin' future plans,
Maybe your baby done made some other plans,
Maybe my baby done made some other plans,
Maybe my baby done made another plan
with another man.
Your baby, your baby, stupid baby, your baby,
That you put so trust so much trust in your baby,
Maybe your baby done made some other plans
TALKING BOOK
YOU AND I
YOU ARE THE SUNSHINE OF
MY LIFE
You are the sunshine of my life
That's why I'll always be around,
You are the apple of my eye,
Forever you'll stay in my heart
I feel like this is the beginning,
Though I've loved you for a million years,
And if I thought our love was ending,
I'd find myself drowning in my own tears
Here we are on earth together,
It's you and I,
God has made us fall in love, it's true,
I've really found someone like you
Will it say the love you feel for me, will it say,
That you will be by my side
To see me through,
Until my life is through
Well, in my mind, we can conquer the world,
In love you and I, you and I, you and I
You are the sunshine of my life,
That's why I'll always stay around,
You are the apple of my eye,
Forever you'll stay in my heart
I am glad at least in my life I found someone
That may not be here forever to see me through,
But I found strength in you,
I only pray that I have shown you a brighter day,
Because that's all that I am living for, you see,
Don't worry what happens to me
You must have known that I was lonely,
Because you came to my rescue,
And I know that this must be heaven,
How could so much love be inside of you?
Cause' in my mind, you will stay here always,
In love, you and I, you and I, you and I, you and I
In my mind we can conquer the world
In love, you and I, you and I, you and I
You are the sunshine of my life, yeah,
That's why I'll always stay around,
You are the apple of my eye,
Forever you'll stay in my heart
(Background) Love has joined us,
Love has joined us,
Let's think sweet love
MAYBE YOUR BABY
I'm feelin' down and some kind of lonely,
Cause' my baby done left me here,
Heart's blazing like a five alarm fire
And I don't even give a care
I feel like the world is turnin' on me,
My dreams turnin' to ashes right in front of my face,
And I'm gettin' kind of worried,
And I feel so out of place,
Maybe your baby done made some other plans,
Maybe your baby done made some other plans
(Background) . . I feel like cryin', yeh, yeh
Maybe baby, baby, baby, baby, baby
In the mornin' when I've got heartache,
I can't call up the doctor for help,
Cause' the only person that could ever do me any good,
Is steppin' out with my best friend
TUESDAY HEARTBREAK
Tuesday heartbreak seem to be unfair,
Cause you say that you found another man,
Tuesday break heart, guess you just don't care,
Cause you found you another man
I want to be with you when you're all alone,
I want to be with you
when you feel you got another man,
You see, baby, it's all alright
I wanna be with you when the nightime comes,
I wanna be with you when the daytime comes,
I wanna stay, oh baby, lemme, baby with you
Tuesday heartbreak seem to be a drag,
When you know that you love her especially,
Catch up baby, catch up with my dreams,
Maybe than I can see you all the time
But I wanna be with you when the nightime comes
I wanna be with you when the daytime comes,
I wanna stay and never go away,
Oh baby, it's alright
I wanna be with you when the nightime comes,
I wanna be with you till the daytime comes
Oh baby, get away, alright
YOU'VE GOT IT BAD GIRL
When you believe in a feeling,
And it's holding you back from my love,
Then you've got it bad girl, you've got it bad girl
When you insist on excluding
The tenderness that's in my kiss,
Then you've got it bad girl, you've got it bad girl
If you try to display an emotion,
That will contradict itself,
You will find your heart just sitting
Like a statue on a shelf, on a shelf, on a shelf
Should you depend on an outlet,
Through which an escape can be found,
Then you've got it bad girl, you've got it bad girl
If you don't see there's no way out,
Just no way of getting around me,
Then you've got it bad girl, you've got it bad girl
Yes, you know the plans I am making,
Are intended to capture you,
So you practice false reactions,
To delay the things I do, the things I do,
things I do, foolish you
You've got it bad girl, you've got it bad
There's no reward in detouring
My deep sincerity.
Especially since what you're feeling,
Is perfectly clear to me, clear to me, clear to me
Before you discover the feeling,
You've tried very hard to hide,
You've got it bad girl, you've got it bad girl
But when you can find just a small space,
To let my love live in your mind,
Then you'll have it good girl, you'll
have it good girl
SUPERSTITION
Very superstitious, writings on the wall,
Very superstitious, ladders bout' to fall,
Thirteen month old baby, broke the lookin' glass
Seven years of bad luck, the good things in your past
When you believe in things that you don't
understand,
Then you suffer,
Superstition ain't the way
Very superstitious, wash your face and hands,
Rid me of the problem, do all that you can,
Keep me in a daydream, keep me goin' strong,
You don't wanna save me, sad is my song
When you believe in things that you don't
understand,
Then you suffer,
Superstition ain't the way, yeh, yeh
Very superstitious, nothin' more to say,
Very superstitious, the devil's on his way,
Thirteen month old baby, broke the lookin' glass,
Seven years of bad luck, good things in your past
When you believe in things that you don't understand,
Then you suffer, Superstition ain't the way, no, no, no
I wanna be with you when the nightime comes,
I wanna stay with you till the morning runs,
I wanna, baby, baby, baby, it's alright

BIG BROTHER
Your name is big brother
You say that you're watching me on the tele,
Seeing me go nowhere,
Your name is big brother,
You say that you're tired of me protesting,
Children dying everyday,
My name is nobody
But I can't wait to see your face inside my door
Your name is big brother
You say that you got me all in your notebook,
Writing it down everyday,
Your name is I'll see ya,
I'll change if you vote me in as the pres,
The President of your soul
I live in the ghetto,
You just come to visit me 'round election time
I live in the ghetto,
Someday I will move on my feet to the other side,
My name is secluded,
we live in a house the size of a matchbox,
Roaches live with us wall to wall,
You've killed all our leaders,
I don't even have to do nothin' to you
You'll cause your own country to fall
BLAME IT ON THE SUN
Where has my love gone?
How can I go on?
It seems dear love has gone away
Where is my spirit?
I'm nowhere near it,
Oh yes, my love has gone astray
But I'll blame it on the sun,
The sun that didn't shine,
I'll blame it on the wind and the trees
I'll blame it on the time that never was enough,
I'll blame it on the tide and the sea,
But, my heart blames it on me
Who poured the love out?
What made this bitter doubt?
Is peace not here for me to see?
LOOKIN' FOR ANOTHER PURE
LOVE
I BELIEVE (WHEN I FALL IN
LOVE IT WILL BE FOREVER)
Never tears or sorrows came before me in my mind,
I had no problems, never a problem in my life,
Never a worry on my mind
Shattered dreams, worthless years,
Here am I encased inside a hollow shell,
Life began, then was done,
Now I stare into a cold and empty well
All my days before today were happy,
And secure until your phone call,
You were tellin' me goodbye
Now I'm lookin' for another love,
I'm lookin' for another pure love in my life
And I'm lookin' for another love,
I'm lookin' for another pure love in my life
Now the wheel of fate has turned,
I'm worried 'bout the new love you've discovered,
He is a problem in my life,
I have a problem on my mind
Things you cherish most in your life,
Can be taken if they're left neglected,
Leavin' a problem in your life
'Cause now I'm lookin' for another love,
I'm lookin' for another pure love in my life, ooh,
And now I'm lookin' for another love,
And now I'm lookin' for another love,
I'm lookin' for another pure love in my life, ooh,
I'm lookin' for another love,
I'm lookin for another pure love in my life
The many sounds that meet our ears
the sights our eyes behold,
Will open up our merging hearts,
And feed our empty souls
I believe when I fall in love with you it will be
forever,
I believe when I fall in love this time it will be
forever
Without despair we will share,
And the joys of caring will not be replaced,
What has been must never end
And with the strength we have won't be erased
When the truths of love are planted firm,
They won't be hard to find,
And the words of love I speak to you
will echo in your mind
I believe when I fall in love with you it will be
forever,
I believe when I fall in love this time it will be
forever
I believe when I fall in love with you it will be
forever,
I believe when I fall in love with you it will be
forever
I'm so glad that I found someone to believe in again,
I'm so glad that I found someone to believe in again
God surely answered my prayer,
God surely answered by prayer,
You know God surely answered my prayer,
You know God surely answered my prayer,
God always will answer your prayers,
Believe in one who will answer my prayer,
Thank you God
Come on, let's fall in love,
You're the woman I've been waiting for,
Come on, let's fall in love,
You're the girl that I really adore,
Come on, let's fall in love...etc
Wish I could tell you,
What I am feeling,
But, words won't come for me to speak
But I'll blame it on the sun,
That didn't fill the sky,
I'll blame it on the birds and the trees
I'll blame it on the day that ended once too soon,
I'll blame it on the nights that could not be,
But, my heart blames it on me
(Background)...Yeh, yeh, yeh, ooh,
Your heart blames it on you this time

I can't ever touch the sky
I'm too high
She's a girl of the past

She passed away

They said she's too high
Too high
Can't hang around anyway...

VISIONS
INNERVISIONS
People hand in hand
Have I lived to see the milk and honey land ?
Where hate's a dream and love forever stands
Or is this a vision in my mind ?
TOO HIGH
The law was never passed
But somehow all men feel they're truly free at last
Have we really gone this far through space and time
Or is this a vision in my mind ?
Dodo do do do dodo
Do do dodo do dodo
Dodo dodo do do
Dodo do do do dodo

I'm too high
I'm too high
But I ain't touched the sky
I'm too high
I'm too high
But I ain't touched the sky
She's a girl in a dream
She sees a four-eyed cartoon monster
On the T.V. screen
She takes another puff and says
"It's a crazy scene"
That red is green
And she's a tangerine
I'm too high
I'm too high
But I ain't left the ground
I'm too high
I'm too high
I hope I never ever come down
She's the girl in her life
But her world's a superficial paradise
She had a chance to make it big more than once or
twice
But no dice
She wasn't very nice
Ooh

I feel like I'm about to die
I'm not one who makes believe
I know that leaves are green
They only change to brown when autumn comes around
I know just what I say
Today's not yesterday
And all things have an ending
But what I'd like to know
Is could a place like this exist so beautiful
Or do we have to find our wings and fly away
To the vision in our mind ?
I'm not one who makes believes

LIVING FOR THE CITY
A boy is born in hard time Mississippi
Surrounded by four walls that ain't so pretty
His parents give him love and affection
To keep him strong moving in the right direction
Living just enough, just enough for the city...ee ha!
For the city...ooh,ooh
(repeat several times)
His hair is long, his feet are hard and gritty
He spends his love walking the streets of New York
City
He's almost dead from breathing on air pollution
He tried to vote but to him there's no solution
Living just enough, just enough for the city...yeah,
yeah, yeah!
I hope you hear inside my voice of sorrow
And that it motivates you to make a better tomorrow
This place is cruel no where could be much colder
If we don't change the world will soon be over
Living just enough, just enough for the city!!!!
La, la, la, la, la, la,

Looking in your eyes
Kind of heaven eyes
Closing both my eyes
Waiting for surprise
To see the heaven in your eyes is not so far
Cause I'm not afraid to try and go it
To know the love and the beauty never known before

And golden lady, golden lady

And you can bet he barely makes a dollar
His mother goes to scrub the floor for many
And you'd best believe she hardly gets a penny
Living just enough, just enough for the city...yeah
His sister's black but she is sho 'nuff pretty
Her skirt is short but Lord her legs are sturdy
To walk to school she's got to get up early
Her clothes are old but never are they dirty
Living just enough, just enough for the city...um hum
Her brother's smart he's got more sense than many
His patience's long but soon he won't have any
To find a job is like a haystack needle
Cause where he lives they don't use colored people
Living just enough, just enough for the city...
Living just enough...

ALL IN LOVE IS FAIR
All is fair in love
Love's a crazy game
Two people vow to stay
In love as one they say
But all is changed with time
The future no one can see
The road you leave behind
Ahead lies mystery
But all is fair in love
I had to go away
A writer takes his pen
To write the words again
That all in love is fair
All of fate's a chance
It's either good or bad
I tossed my coin to say
In love with me you'd stay
But all in war is so cold
You either win or lose
When all is put away
The loosing side I'll play
But all is fair in love
I should never have left your side
A writer takes his pen
To write the words again
That all in love is fair
A writer takes his pen
To write the words again
That all in love is fair
DON'T YOU WORRY 'BOUT A

Everybody's got a thing

Always reachin' out in vain
Accepting the things not worth having but
Don't you worry 'bout a thing
Don't you worry 'bout a thing, mama
Cause I'll be standing on the side
When you check it out
They say your style of life's a drag
And that you must go other places
But just don't you feel too bad
When you get fooled by smiling faces but
Don't you worry 'bout a thing
Don't you worry 'bout a thing, mama
Cause I'll be standing on the side
When you check it out...Yeah
When you get it off...your trip
Don't you worry 'bout a thing...Yeah
Don't you worry 'bout a thing...Yeah
Don't you worry 'bout a thing
Don't you worry 'bout a thing, mama
Cause I'll be standing on the side
When you check it out...
When you get it off...your trip
Everybody needs a change
A chance to check out the new
But you're the only one to see
The changes you take yourself through
Don't you worry 'bout a thing
Don't you worry 'bout a thing, pretty mama
Cause I'll be standing in the wings

HEAVEN IS 10 ZILLION LIGHT
YEARS AWAY
They say that heaven is 10 zillion light years away
And just the pure at heart will walk her righteous streets
someday
They say that heaven is 10 zillion light years away
But if there is a God, we need Him now
"Where is your God"
That's what my friends ask me
And I say it's taken Him so long
'Cause we've got so far to come...

But in my heart I can feel it, yeah,

For those who don't believe will never see the light
"Where is my God" - He lives inside of me
And I say it's taken Him so long
'Cause we've got so far to come...

YOU HAVEN'T DONE
NOTHING
We are amazed but not amused
By all the things you say that you'll do
Though much concerned but not involved
With decisions that are made by you
But we are sick and tired of hearing your song
Telling how you are gonna change right from wrong
'Cause if you really want to hear our views
"You haven't done nothing"!
It's not too cool to be ridiculed
But you brought this upon yourself
The world is tired of pacifiers
We want the truth and nothing else
And we are sick and tired of hearing your song
Telling how you are gonna change right from wrong
'Cause if you really want to hear our views
"You haven't done nothing"!
Jackson 5 join along with me say
Doo doo wop - hey hey hey
Doo doo wop - wow wow wow
Doo doo wop - co co co
Doo doo wop - naw naw naw
Doo doo wop - bum bum bum
Doo doo wop
We would not care to wake up to the nightmare
That's becoming real life
But when mislead who knows a person's mind
Can turn as cold as ice un hum
Why do you keep on making us hear your song
Telling us how you are changing right from wrong
'Cause if you really want to hear our views
"You haven't done nothing"!
Yeah
Jackson 5 sing along again say
Doo doo wop
Doo doo wop - oh

IT AINT NO USE
Um um um um
Um um um um
There ain't no reason for us sittin' down
To try to talk our problems out
'Cause we know the truth,
It ain't no use each other we must do without.
There ain't no reason tryin' to force a smile
When pain is really in its place
'Cause we know the truth,
It ain't no use let's part before we lose love's trace.
(We've got to say)
Wow oh oh ooh
(Bye bye bye bye bye)
Wow oh oh ooh
(Bye bye bye bye bye)
Wow oh ooh oh ooh wow oh ooh
Wow oh oh oh ooh
As I look back I'm really try'n to see
Just what it was that made us spark
'Cause the fire's out
It leaves no doubt, the flame's not burning in our hearts.
We still are young and both of us have time
To find our winter love in spring
Yes we know the truth
It ain't no use, we're not each other's ev'rything.
(We always must say bye)
Wow oh oh ooh yeah
(Bye bye bye bye bye)
Wow oh oh ooh yeah
(Bye bye bye bye bye)
Wow oh ooh oh ooh wow oh ooh

THEY WON'T GO WHEN I GO
BIRD OF BEAUTY
PLEASE DON'T GO
No more lying friends
Wanting tragic ends
Though they do pretend
They won't go when I go
Uuh uh
Do do do do do do
Do do do do do do
Uuu uuu uuu uuu uuu uuu uuu.
All those bleeding hearts
With sorrows to impart
Were right here from the start
And they won't go when I go
And I'll go where I've longed
To go so long
Away from tears
Gone from painful cries
Away from saddened eyes
Along with him I'll bide
Because they won't go when I go
Big men feeling small
Weak ones standing tall
I will watch them fall
They won't go when I go
And I'll go where I've longed
To go so long
Away from tears
Unclean minds mislead the pure
The innocent will leave for sure
For them there is a resting place
People sinning just for fun
They will never see the sun
For they can never show their faces
There ain't no room for the hopeless sinner
Who will take more than he will give
He ain't hardly gonna give
The greed of man will be
Far away from me
And my soul will be free
They won't go when I go
Since my soul conceived
All that I believe
The kingdom I will see
'Cause they won't go when I go
When I go
Where I'll go
No one can keep me
From my destiny.
Ooh oh
Do do do do do do
Do do do do do do
Simon says that now your mind desires a vacation,
Free to join in fun and plenty recreation.
There awaits you a ticket
At Please Have A Good Time Station,
'Cause what is, is gonna stay,
Til ole Father Time decides to change.
Simon says that your mind is requesting furliugh,
Let it find the answers to things
That you've always wanted to know.
There's a tour of many places
That you've always wanted to go,
And to me that sure sounds best
'Cause it means happiness for you.
There is so much in life for you to feel
Unfound in white, red, or yellow pills.
A mind excursion can be such a trill,
You please satisfy,
Take a chance and ride
The bird of beauty of the sky.
Do do do do do do do do do do do do

Tudo bem você deve descannar a sua mente,
Não faz mal o qu vai acontecer daqui pra fente.
Vai cantar alegria.......
Voce coracao assim tao feliz ja vai cantar carnaval.

HAVE A TALK WITH GOD
There are people who have let the problems of today
Lead them to conclude that for them life is not the way
But every problem has an answer and if yours you
cannot find
You should talk it over to Him
He'll give you peace of mind
When you feel your life's too hard
Just go have a talk with God
Many of us feel we walk alone without a friend
Never communicating with the One who lives within
Forgetting all about the One who never ever lets you
down
And you can talk to him anytime He's always around
When you feel your life's too hard
Just go have a talk with God
Well He's the only free psychiatrist that's known
throughout the world
For solving problems of all men, women, little boys and
girls
When you feel your life's too hard
Just go have a talk with God
When you feel your life's too hard
Just go have a talk with God
When your load's too much to bear
Just go talk to God He cares
I know he does
When you feel your life's too hard
Just go have a talk with God
thank you
thank you very much
VILLAGE GHETTO LAND
Would you like to go with me
Down my dead end street
Would you like to come with me
To Village Ghetto Land
See the people lock their doors
While robbers laugh and steal
Beggars watch and eat their meal -from garbage cans
Broken glass is everywhere
It's a bloody scene
Killing plagues the citizens
Unless they own police
Children play with rusted cars
Sores cover their hands
Politicians laugh and drink-drunk to all demands
Families buying dog food now
Starvation roams the streets
Babies die before they're born
Infected by the grief
Now some folks say that we should be
Glad for what we have
Tell me would you be happy in Village Ghetto Land
Village Ghetto Land
Send yours in right away
right a-way
You know that hate's
hate's

SIR DUKE
Music is a world within itself
With a language we all understand
With an equal opportunity
For all to sing, dance and clap their hands
But just because a record has a groove
Don't make it in the groove
But you can tell right away at letter A
When the people start to move
They can feel it all over
They can feel it all over people
They can feel it all over
They can feel it all over people
Music knows it is and always will
Be one of the things that life just won't quit
But here are some of music's pioneers
That time will not allow us to forget
For there's Basie, Miller, Sachimo
And the king of all Sir Duke
And with a voice like Ella's ringing out
There's no way the band can lose
You can feel it all over
You can feel it all over people
You can feel it all over

I WISH
Looking back on when I
Was a little nappy headed boy
Then my only worry
Was for Christmas what would be my toy
Even though we sometimes
Would not get a thing
We were happy with the
Joy the day would bring
Sneaking out the back door
To hang out with those hoodlum friends of mine
Greeted at the back door
With boy thought I told you not to go outside
Tryin' your best to bring the
Water to your eyes
Thinkin' it might stop her
Grom woopin' your behind
Smokin' cigarettes and writing something nasty on the
wall (you nasty boy)
Teacher sends you to the principal's office down the
wall
You grow up and learn that kinda thing ain't right
But while you were doin'it-it sure felt outta sight
I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ev-er have to go
I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ev-er have to go
KNOCKS ME OFF MY FEETS
I see us in the park
Strolling the summer days of imaginings in my head
And words from our hearts
Told only to the wind felt even without being said
I don't want to bore you with my trouble
But there's sumptin'bout your love
That makes me weak and
Knocks me off my feet
There's supmtin'bout your love
That makes me weak and
Knocks me off my feet
Knocks me off my feet
I don't want to bore you with it
Oh but I love you, I love you, I love you
I don't want to bore you with it
Oh but I love you, I love you, I love you
More and more
We lay beneath the stars
Under a lovers tree that's seen through the eyes of my
mind
I reach out for the part
Of me that lives in you that only our two hearts can find
But I don't want to bore you with my trouble
But there's sumptin'bout your love
That makes me weak and
Knocks me off my feet
There's sumptin'bout your love
That makes me weak and
Knocks me off my feet
Knocks me off my feet
I don't want to bore you with it
Oh but I love you, I love you, I love you
I don't want to bore you with it
Oh but I love you, I love you, I love you
I don't want to bore you with it
Oh but I love you, I love you, I love you
Darling I don't want to bore you with it
Oh but I love you, I love you, I love you
I don't want to bore you with it
Oh but I love you, I love you, I love you
Darling I don't want to bore you with it
Oh but I love you, I love you, I love you
PASTIME PARADISE
They've been spending most their lives
Living in a pastime paradise
They've been spending most their lives
Living in a pastime paradise
They've been wasting most their lives
Glorifying days long gone behind
They've been wasting most their days
In remembrance of ignorance oldest praise
Tell me who of them will come to be
How many of them are you and me

They've been spending most their lives
Living in a future paradise

Living in a future paradise
They've been looking in their minds
For the day that sorrow's gone from time
They keep telling of the day
When the Savior of love will come to stay
Tell me who of them will come to be
How many of them are you and me
Proclamation of Race Relations

Shame to anyones lives
Living in a pastime paradise
I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ev-er have to go
I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ev-er have to go
Cause I love them so
Brother says he's tellin'
'Bout you playin' doctor with that girl
Just don't tell I'll give you
Anything you want in this whole wide world
Mama gives you money for Sunday school
You trade yours for candy after church is through

SUMMER SOFT
Summer soft...
Wakes you up with a kiss to start the morning off
In the midst of herself playing Santa Claus
She brings gifts through her breeze
Morning rain...
Gently plays her rythms on your window pane
Giving you no clue of when she plans to change
To bring rain or sunshine
And so you wait to see what she'll do
Is it sun or rain for you
But it breaks your heart in two
When you find it's October
And she's gone
And she's gone
Summer's gone
Taking with her summer's play
Winter wind...
Whispers to you that he wants to be your friend
But not waiting for your answer ne begins
Forcing dangers 'way with his breeze
Morning snow...
Plans to have a winter ball for you to throw
But just where or when he never lets you know
If it's snow or clear days you'll find
And so you wait to see what he'll do
Is it sun or snow for you
But it breaks your heart in two
Cause you've been fooled by April
And he's gone
And he's gone
Winter's gone
You find it's October
And she's gone
And she's gone
Summer's gone
You've been fooled by April
And she's gone
And she's gone
Winter's gone
You find it's October
And she's gone
And she's gone
Summer's gone
You've been fooled by April
And she's gone
And she's gone
Winter's gone
ORDINARY PAIN
When by the phone
In vain you sit
You very soon in your mind realize that it's not just
An ordinary pain in your heart
When you by chance
Go knock on her door
Walkin' away you're convinced that it's much more
Than just an ordinary pain in your heart
It's more than just
An ordinary pain in your heart
Don't fool yourself
But tell no one else
That it's more than just
An ordinary pain
In your heart
When you catch up
But she says goodbye
Hold back your tears and before you start to cry
Say you feel unnecessary pain in your heart
Tell her you're glad
It's over in fact
Can she take with her the pain she brought you back
Takin that ordinary pain from your heart
It's more than just
An ordinary pain from your heart
Don't fool yourself
But tell no one else
That it's more than just
An ordinary pain
In your heart
In your heart
In your heart
PART II
You're just a masachistic fool
Because you knew my love was cruel
You never listened when they said
Don't let that girl go to your head
But like a play boy you said no
or*di*nary pain
This little girl mind you will blow
or*di*nary pain
But then I blew you out the box
or*di*nary pain
When I put my stuff on key and lock
or*di*nary pain
It makes me feel kind of sick
or*di*nary pain
To know love put you in a trick
or*di*nary pain
I knew our love would have to end
or*di*nary pain
The day I made it with your friend
or*di*nary pain
Giving your love to one unreal
or*di*nary pain
Like a big fool I know you feel
or*di*nary pain
But in this lovie-dovie game
or*di*nary pain
With all its joy there must be pain
or*di*nary pain
But now the time has surely come
or*di*nary pain
This game don't seem like so much fun
or*di*nary pain
You're cryin big corcodile tears
or*di*nary pain
Don't match the ones I've cried for years
or*di*nary pain
When I was home wainting for you
or*di*nary pain
You were out somewhere doing the do
or*di*nary pain
You know I'd really like to stay
or*di*nary pain
But like you did I've go to play
or*di*nary pain
You're dumb to think I'd let you be
or*di*nary pain
Scott free without some pain from me
or*di*nary pain
I heard your song and took a chance
or*di*nary pain
But to your music I can't dance
or*di*nary pain
Go tell your story 'sob-sad'
or*di*nary pain
About you blowin what you had
or*di*nary pain
Since one ain't good enough for you
or*di*nary pain
Then do yourself see how you do
or*di*nary pain
SATURN
Packing my bags-going away
To a place where the air is clean
On saturn
There's no sense to sit and watch the people die
We don't fight our wars the way you do
We put back all the things we use
On Saturn
There's no sense to keep on doing such crimes
There's no principles in what you say
No direction in the things you do
For your world is soon to come to a close
Through the ages all great men have taught
Truth and happiness just can't be bought-or sold
Tell me why are you people so cold
I'm......
Going back to Saturn where the rings all glow
Rainbow, moonbeams and orange snow
On Saturn
People live to be two hundred and five
Going back to saturn where the people smile
Don't need cars cause we've learn to fly
On Saturn
Just to live to us is our natural high
We have come here many times before
To find your strategy to peace is war
Killing helpless men, women and children
That don't even know what they are dying for
We can't trust you when you take a stand
With a cold expression on your face
Saying give us what we want or we'll destroy
I'm......
Going back to Saturn where the rings all glow
Rainbow, moonbeams and orange snow
On Saturn
People live to be two hundred and five
Going back to saturn where the people smile
Don't need cars cause we've learn to fly
On Saturn
Just to live to us is our natural high
or*di*nary pain
or*di*nary pain
or*di*nary pain
or*di*nary pain

EBONY EYES
JOY INSIDE MY TEARS
She's a Miss Beautiful Supreme
A girl that other wish that they could be
If there's seven wonders of the world
Then I know she's gotta be number one
She's a girl that can't be beat
Born and raised on ghetto streets
She's a devastating beauty
A pretty girl with ebony eyes
I've always come to the conclusion that 'but' is the way
Of asking for permission to lay something heavy on
ones head
So I have tried to not be the one who 'll fall into that
line
But what I feel inside I think you should know
She's the sunflower of nature's seeds
A girl that some men only find in their dreams
When she smiles it seems the stars all know
Cause one by one they start to light up the sky
She's a girl that can't be beat
Born and raised on ghetto streets
She's a devastating beauty
A pretty girl with ebony eyes
A girl that can't be beat
Born and raised on ghetto streets
She's a devastating beauty
A pretty girl with ebony eyes
When she starts talking soft and sweet
Like birds of spring her words all seem to sing
With a rhythm that is made of love
And the happiness that she only brings
She's a girl that can't be beat
Born and raised on ghetto streets
She's a devastating beauty
A pretty girl with ebony eyes
A girl that can't be beat
Born and raised on ghetto streets
She's a devastating beauty
A pretty girl with ebony eyes
Yeah, yea, yea
.......yeah
Pretty black beauty
Yeah, yea yeah
Yea, yea, yeah, yea, yea, yeah
Yea, yea, yea, yea, yea, yea, yeah
She's a girl that can't be beat
Born and raised on ghetto streets
She's a devastating beauty
A pretty girl with ebony ey---es

Por nuestro mundo
Es una historia de mi corazon
I am singing
There's songs to make you smile

So I've tried to put in words how I feel
Tomorrow will be for you and me
I am singing of topmorrow

I am singing someday love will reign
Througout this world of ours
I am singing of love from my heart
Let's all sing someday sweet love will reign
Througout this world of ours

Of love from our hearts
Let's start singing
Of love from our hearts
IF IT'S MAGIC
If it's magic...
Then why can't it be everlasting
Like the sun that always shines
Like the poets in this rhyme
Like the galaxies in time
If it's pleasing...
Then why can't it be never leaving
Like the day that never fails
Like on seashores there are shells
Like the time that always tells
It holds the key to every heart
Throughout the universe
It fills you up without a bite
And quenches every thirst
So...
If it's special
Then with it why aren't we as careful
As making sure we dress in style
Posing pictures with a smile
Keeping danger from a child
It holds the key to every heart
Throughout the universe
It fills you up without a bite
And quenches every thirst
So...
If it's magic...
Why can't we make it everlasting
Like the lifetime of the sun
It will leave no heart undone
For there's enough for everyone
AS
As around the sun the earth knows she's revolving
And the rosebuds know to bloom in early May
Just as hate knows love's the cure
You can rest your mind assure
That I'll be loving you always
As now can't reveal the mystery of tomorrow
But in passing will grow older every day
Just as all is born is new
Do know what I say is true
That I'll be loving you always
Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky--ALWAYS
Until the ocean covers every mountain high--ALWAYS
Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea--ALWAYS
Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream
Did you know that true love asks for nothing
Her acceptance is the way we pay
Did you know that life has given love a guarantee
To last through forever and another day
Just as time knew to move on since the beginning
And the seasons know exactly when to change
Just as kindness knows no shame
Know through all your joy and pain
That I'll be loving you always
As today I know I'm living but tomorrow
Could make me the past but that I mustn't fear
For I'll know deep in my mind
The love of me I've left behind Cause I'll be loving you
always
Until the day is night and night becomes the day--ALWAYS
Until the trees and seas just up and fly away--ALWAYS
Until the day that 8x8x8 is 4---ALWAYS
Until the day that is the day that are no more
Did you know that you're loved by somebody?
Until the day the earth starts turning right to left--ALWAYS
Until the earth just for the sun denies itself
I'll be loving you forever
Until dear Mother Nature says her work is through--ALWAYS
Until the day that you are me and I am you--AL~~~~~~WA~~
~~~~~AA~~~~~~~AA~~~~
Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the
sky~~~~~AA~~~~
~~~~AA~~~~~~~AA~~~~~~~~~AA~~~~~~~YS~
~ALWAYS
We all know sometimes lifes hates and troubles
Can make you wish you were born in another time and
space
But you can bet you life times that and twice its double
That God knew exactly where he wanted you to be
placed
so make sure when you say you're in it but not of it
You're not helping to make this earth a place sometimes
called Hell
Change your words into truths and then change that
truth into love
And maybe our children's grandchildren
And their great-great grandchildren will tell
I'll be loving you
Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky-Loving you
Until the ocean covers every mountain high--Loving
you
Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea-Loving you
Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream--Be
loving you

You're sorry for what went down the other day
And could I come over today
Do something for your love
One knuck gets me in
But then you say how very nice it's been
That lets me know that I will once again
Get nothin' fom your love
I'm an all day sucker
Coming to give something to get nothin'
I'm an all day sucker
Coming to give something but to get none of your love

On we go to where who knows
To a place where there's still non-believers
What will it take for heaven sakes
For those who find what's real too hard to believe in
It's that same old story again.
VENUS' FLYTRAP AND THE
BUG
Hello flower
Boy, do you look juicy
And you know just what I’m coming to get, right
Don’t eat me
Please don’t eat me
I’m trapped in your love
Save me, don’t hurt me
JOURNEY THROUGH
AI NO, SONO
THE SECRET LIFE OF
PLANTS
There is a garden
Where every heart can
Share in the joy of giving
SAME OLD STORY
Quietty listen and you might hear them singing their
lullaby
Calling for you to join in their love filled garden
Born to open for
Mankind nature's door
A life known by a few
And those who knew that shared
Their knowledge fewer cared
About what plants could do
For most felt it was mad to conceive
That plants thought, felt, and moved quite like we
But with instruments Bose would devise
Would take Science itself by a surprise, so
On we go to where who knows
To a place where there's still non-believers
What will it take for heaven sakes
For those who find what's real too hard to believe in
It's that same old story again.
It like no other
Has love to cover
Bearing no price on living

POWER FLOWER
Pan is my name
I live outside the door
I have to keep the score of things around you
Fire and air,
water I prepare
I am the piper at the gates of dawning
It's not magic it's not madness
Just the elements I style
And I guarantee faithfully I will never go
Until all is said and done
In a twinkling I'll be gone
Well excuse me I have so much more to do
Fancy I fell,
A childlike tap I'll steal
Look twice my friend it's not the wind at all
You'll never see,
What you refuse to be
The power in the seeing is believing.
It's not magic it's not madness
Just the elements I style
And I guarantee faithfully I will never go
Until all is said and done
In a twinkling I'll be gone
Well excuse me I have so much more to do
It's not magic it's not madness
Just the elements I style
And I guarantee faithfully I will never go
Until all is said and done
In a twinkling I'll be gone
Well excuse me I have so much more to do

We must plant crops to replenish it
But it took him persuasion and tests
To convince them Canver's way was best, so

Send her your love
With a dozen roses
Make sure that she knows it
With a flower from your heart
Man's production
Life's corruption

Show him your love
Don't hold back your feelings
You don't need a reason
When it's straight from the heart
Help me people
Save you people
God's induction

I've heard so many say that the days of romance are no
more
And people falling in love is so old fashioned
But waiting are they the day they once let slip away
Hiding need to fulfill their heart's desire for love’s
passion
Send her your love
With a dozen roses
Make sure that she knows it
With a flower from your heart
Show him your love
Don't hold back your feelings
You don't need a reason
When it's straight from the heart
I know that people say two hearts beating as one is
unreal
And can only happen in make believe stories
But so blind they all must be that they cannot believe
what they see
For around us are miracles of love’s glory
Show him your love
Don't hold back your feelings
You don't need a reason
When it's straight from the heart

But the sweetest of them all
You seldom will find stories of, oh oh oh oh

Clouds burst to give water

My love smiles to me each morning
Says she’ll never leave me and I know it’s so

BLACK ORCHID
A flake of snow within a storm
A new way waiting to be born
In a world with need of change
A touch of love in fear of hate
A rushing wind that's asked to wait
For the promises of rain
A pearl of wisdom entrapped by poverty
She gives love with purity
Filling minds with hopeful schemes
To build worlds enhanced by peace
Draped in sparkling morning dew
She expresses life anew
From the earth beneath her feet
She is a flower that grows
In love ability
She's femininity
Black Orchid, Black Orchid
Why did they make you begin
When they know in time you'll find your truth
before your cycle ends
Black Orchid, Black Orchid
Why are you crying their fears
When the true reflection of you that they see
Is love besieged by years
She has touched the farthest star
Her beauty speaks of what we are
And her freedom makes us free
Her now is in eternity
Infinite to all that see
And her dreams have been achieved
Now there is a sound of laughter
Nature signs out her name
For the world to know her fame
Black Orchid, Black Orchid
Why did they criticize
When they knew your love could cast its spell and
consecrate their eyes
Black Orchid, Black Orchid
Why do you linger in space
When you know in every heart that beats
You hold a special place
When you know in every heart that beats
You hold a special place

You will often hear her name
Describing another’s prettiness
But if ever there was choice
My flower would be the prettiest, oh oh oh oh
My love lives outside my window
Clouds burst to give water
So her love can grow, oh
My love smiles to me each morning
Says she’ll never leave me and I know it’s so

COME BACK AS A FLOWER
The starngest thought came to me on this morning
As I awake to greet the coming dawn
The sun was hardly peaking through the garden
It felt that with everything I was one
Then I wished that I could come back as a flower
As a flower
As a flower
How I wished that I could come back as a flower
As a flower
To spread the sweetness of love
To spread the sweetness of love
The dew had finished making love to many
A rainbow smelling sweet was in the air
I envied all the silence I saw growing
So unmoved by things outside themselves
Then how I wished that I could come back as a flower
As a flower
As a flower
How I wished that I could come back as a flower
As a flower
To spread the sweetness of love
How I wished that I could come back as a flower
Oh as a flower

A SEED'S A STAR / TREE
MEDLEY
We're a people black as is your night
Born to spread Amma's eternal light
Which since time began
Has been to bring truth to every man
Our ancestors have since long ago
Passed their wisdom down so we to know
For here lies the key
That will help unfold the mistery
A seed's a star
A seed's a star's a seed
A star's a seed
A star's a seed's a star
In myself I do contain
The elements of sun and rain
First a seed with roots that swell
I gradually burst through my shell
Pushing down into the ground
The root of me is homeward bound
A trunk, a leaf and there I am
A miracle of least by far
Tree - you are the longest living one we know
the largest of all plants and still you grow
Tree - within your branches there's such history
so much of what we're searching for to know
Every fifty years we celebrate
Po Tolo, our star, as it rotates
Though infinitely small
It is still the heaviest of them all
(Background)
THE SECRET LIFE OF PLANTS
I can't conceive the nucleus of all
Begins inside a tiny seed
And what we think as insignificant
Provides the purest air we breathe
But who am I to doubt or question the inevitable
being
For these are but a few discoveries
We find inside the Secret Life of Plants
A species smaller than the eye can see
Or larger than most living things
And yet we take from it without consent
Our shelter, food, habilment
But who am I to doubt or question the inevitable
being
For these are but a few discoveries
Wwe find inside the Secret Life of Plants
But far too many give them in return
A stomp, cut, drown, or burn
As is they're nothing
But if you ask yourself where would you be
Without them you will find you would not
And some believe antennas are their leaves
That spans beyond our galaxy
They've been, they are and probably will be
Who are the mediocrity
But who am I to doubt or question the inevitable
being
For these are but a few discoveries
We find inside the Secret Life of Plants

Trying to get on the inside
Did I hear you say you need me

Put my love life right in the pocket
And dare someone to try to top it
And when you think I want to drop it
Just love me ‘til I beg don't stop it
‘Cause I've been standing on the outside
Trying to get on the inside

ROCKET LOVE
Do Do Do, Do Do Do, Do Do Do, Do Do Do
Do Do Do, Do Do Do, Do Do Do-oo
I longed for you since I was born
A woman sensitive and warm
And that you were
With pride and strength no one would test
But yet have feminine finesse
And so much more
You took me riding in your rocket, gave me a star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me
back
down to this cold, cold world
Took me riding in your rocket, gave me a star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me
back
down to this cold, cold world
A female Shakespeare of your time
With looks to blow Picasso's mind
You were the best
Your body moved with grace and song
Like symphonies by Bach or Brahms
Nevertheless, oh oh
You took me riding in your rocket, gave me a star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me
back
down to this cold, cold world
Ooh you took me riding in your rocket, gave me a
star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me
back
down to this cold, cold world
Da Da Da, Da Da Da, Da Da Da, Da Da Da
Da Da Da, Da Da Da-aa
35
The passion burning in your heart
Would make hell's fire seem like a spark
Where did it go
Just why that you would overnight
Turn love to stone as cold as ice
I'll never know
But you took me riding in your rocket, gave me a
star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me
back
down to this cold, cold world
Baby you took me riding in your rocket, gave me a
star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me
back
down to this cold, cold world
Cold, too cold, you took me riding in your rocket,
gave me a star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me
back
down to this cold, cold world
Oh, Oh, Oh, took me riding in your rocket, gave me
a star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me
back
down to into this cold, cold world
I would not do that to a dog
Took me riding in your rocket, gave me a star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me
back
down to this cold, cold world
You took me riding in your rocket, gave me a star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me back
down to this cold, cold world

AS IF YOU READ MY MIND
Close your eyes ‘til the morning
Close your eyes ‘til the early dew
Get inside what you've been missing
Are the very first words that I heard coming from you
Take a chance on the secret
That you hide for beneath your dreams
Use your wildest imagination
You just tell me what it is and I will make it be
As if you read my mind
As if you touched my soul
As if you knew exactly where I wanted to go
Let's get high on the happy
With a toast to you and me
Love is here just for the giving
And between us we've got all the love we'll ever need
As if you read my mind
As if you touched my soul
As if you knew exactly where I wanted to go

MASTER BLASTER
Everyone's feeling pretty
It's hotter than July
Though the world's full of problems
They couldn't touch us even if they tried
From the park I hear rhythms
Marley's hot on the box
Tonight there will be a party
On the corner at the end of the block
Didn't know you
Would be jammin' until the break of dawn
I bet nobody ever told you that you
would be jammin' until the break of dawn
You would be jammin' and jammin' and jammin',
jam on
They want us to join their fighting
But our answer today
Is to let all our worries
Like the breeze through our fingers slip away
Peace has come to Zimbabwe
Third World's right on the one
Now's the time for celebration
'Cause we've only just begun
Didn't know that you
Would be jammin' until the break of dawn
Bet you nobody ever told you that you
Would be jammin' until the break of dawn
You would be jammin' and jammin' and jammin',
jam on
Bet you nobody ever told you that you
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master
blaster jammin')
Would be jammin' until the break of dawn
I know nobody told you that you
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master
blaster jammin')
Would be jammin' until the break of dawn
We're jammin', jammin', jammin', jam on
You ask me am I happy
Well as matter of fact
I can say that I'm ecstatic
'Cause we all just made a pact
We've agreed to get together
Joined as children in Jah
When you're moving in the positive
Your destination is the brightest star
You didn't know that you
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master
blaster jammin')
Would be jammin' until the break of dawn
I bet you nobody ever told you that you
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master
blaster jammin')
Would be jammin' until the break of dawn
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, you
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master
blaster jammin')
Would be jammin' until the break of dawn
Don't you stop the music, oh no,
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master
blaster jammin')
Na, na na...
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master
blaster jammin')
Nobody told you Oh, Oh, Oh, you
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master
blaster jammin')
Would be jammin' until the break of dawn
I bet you if someone approached you
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master
blaster jammin')
yesterday to tell you that you would be jammin' you
would not believe it because you never thought that
you would be jammin'
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh,
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master
blaster jammin')
jammin' 'til the break of dawn
Oh, Oh, Oh, You may as well believe what you are
feeling
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master
blaster jammin')
because you feel your body jammin'
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master
blaster jammin')
Oh, Oh, you would be jammin' until the break of
dawn
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master
blaster jammin')
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master
blaster jammin')
DO LIKE YOU
(Keita) Show me how to do like you
(Aisha) If you say please
(Keita) Please
Since age one Keita knew he had the answer
And it was that someday he'd be a dancer
And with help from his sis
Surely that boy would not miss
From being the baddest dancer in the whole
neighborhood
Late at night when he was supposed to be sleeping
You could hear the pitter patter of feet creeping
To where music would play
To his sister he would say
Before his father said hey boy get right back in that bed

Show me how to do like you
Show me how to do it
Show me how to do like you
Show me how to do it

Show me how to do like you
Can you rock around the clock, can you rock
Show me how to do it
- Can you rock can you rock
Show me how to do like you
Can you rock around the clock, can you rock
Once at school they put on a talent contest
To find out who could really boogy the best
But his mama said no
Keita's much too young to go
But his sister said please let him go so the world can see
When they saw him they said he must be crazy
Look at him he ain't nothing but a baby
But soon as he began
You knew the contest he would win
Because everyone in the audience began to cheer
Show me how to do like you
Show me how to do it
Show me how to do like you
Show me how to do it
- Can you rock can you rock
Show me how to do like you
Can you rock around the clock, can you rock
Show me how to do it

Can you rock around the clock, can you rock
Show me how to do it

(Aisha) Ooh, you done broke Mama's lamp
(Keita) Uh, uh
(Aisha) Yes you did
(Keita) No I didn't
CASH IN YOUR FACE
You just could not know how long we tried
To see how this building looks inside
This must be a lucky day for me
Because the sign says there's a vacancy
Look I know you came a long way
But you made it just too late
So we had to give it to somebody else
Well I talked to you on the phone less than fifteen
minutes ago
And you told me that it was cool
I graduated from Howard U.
My job is paying good money too
And if you check on my resume
You'll find they all wanted me to stay
Well I can't take the time out
To check your credit card
‘Cause the computer just broke down today
Well I'll stop by here tomorrow to complete our
interview
But I know what you're gonna say
I know what your bottomline is
You might have the cash but you
Can...not cash in your face
We don't want you living in here
Say you might have the cash but you
Can...not cash in your face
We don't want your kind living in here
Too-oo, Too-oo too bad,
Too-oo, too-oo too sad
Our first child is due here any day
That's why we're desperate for a place to stay
The location is so perfect too
So please try to do what you can do
Well in this apartment complex no children are allowed
And if you told me that I could have saved you alot of
time
Well I thought the Bill was passed that said you could
not discriminate
But I know some excuse you'll find
Because your bottom line is
You might have the cash but you
Can...not cash in your face
We don't want you living in here
Say you might have the cash but you
Can...not cash in your face
We don't want your kind living in here
Aye, you might be a great doctor
You might be a great lawyer
You might possess the key to the city
Or maybe a politician
You might have the cash but you
Can...not cash in your face
We don't want you living in here
Say you might have the cash but you
Can...not cash in your face
We don't want your kind living in here
LATELY
Lately, I have had the strangest feeling
With no vivid reason here to find
Yet the thought of losing you's been hanging
'round my mind
Far more frequently you're wearing perfume
With you say no special place to go
But when I ask will you be coming back soon
You don't know, never know
Well, I'm a man of many wishes
Hope my premonition misses
But what I really feel my eyes won't let me hide
‘Cause they always start to cry
‘Cause this time could mean goodbye
Lately I've been staring in the mirror
Very slowly picking me apart
Trying to tell myself I have no reason
with your heart
Just the other night while you were sleeping
I vaguely heard you whisper someone's name
But when I ask you of the thoughts your keeping
You just say nothing's changed
Well, I'm a man of many wishes
I hope my premonition misses
But what I really feel my eyes won't let me hide
‘Cause they always start to cry
‘Cause this time could mean goodbye, goodbye
Oh, I'm a man of many wishes
I hope my premonition misses
But what I really feel my eyes won't let me hide
‘Cause they always start to cry
‘Cause this time could mean goodbye
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday
I just never understood
How a man who died for good
Could not have a day that would
Be set aside for his recognition
Because it should never be
Just because some cannot see
The dream as clear as he
that they should make it become an illusion
And we all know everything
That he stood for time will bring
For in peace our hearts will sing
Thanks to Martin Luther King
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday
Why has there never been a holiday
Where peace is celebrated
all throughout the world
The time is overdue
For people like me and you
Who know the way to truth
Is love and unity to all God's children
It should never be a great event
And the whole day should be spent
In full remembrance
Of those who lived and died for the oneness of all
people
So let us all begin
We know that love can win
Let it out don't hold it in
Sing it loud as you can
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday
Happy birthday
Happy birthday
Happy birthday
Ooh yeah
Happy birthday...
We know the key to unify all people
Is in the dream that you had so long ago
That lives in all of the hearts of people
That believe in unity
We'll make the dream become a reality
I know we will
Because our hearts tell us so
HAPPY BIRTHDAY
You know it doesn't make much sense
There ought to be a law against
Anyone who takes offense
At a day in your celebration
Cause we all know in our minds
That there ought to be a time
That we can set aside
To show just how much we love you
And I'm sure you would agree
It couldn't fit more perfectly
Than to have a world party on the day you came to be

FRONT LINE
THAT GIRL
I am a veteran of the war
I up and joined the army back in 1964
At sixteen I just had to be a man at any cost
I volunteered for Vietnam where I got my leg shot off
I recall a quote from a movie that said "who's more a
man
Than a man with a reason that's worth dyin' for"
That girl thinks that she's so fine
That soon she'll have my mind
That girl thinks that she's so smart
That soon she'll have my heart
She thinks in no time flat
That she'll be free and clear to start
With her emotional rescue of love that you'll leave turn
apart
They had me standing on the front line
They had me standing on the front line
They had me standing on the front line
But now I stand at the back of the line when it
comes to gettin' ahead
ORIGINAL
MUSIQUARIUM I
RIBBON IN THE SKY
They gave me a uniform and a tiny salty pill
To stop the big urge I might have for the wrong kind of
thrill
They put a gun in my hand and said, "shoot until he's
dead"
But it's hard to kill when 'please your friend' echoes
through your head
Brought up in church taught no man should take
another's life
But then put in a jungle where life has no price
They had me standing on the front line
They had me standing on the front line
They had me standing on the front line
But now I stand at the back of the line when it
comes to gettin' ahead
Oh so long for this night I prayed
That a star would guide you my way
To share with me this special day
Where a ribbon's in the sky for our love
Back in the world the paper reads today
Another war is in the brewing
But what about the lives of yesterday
And the many happy families that have been ruined
If allowed may I touch your hand
And if pleased may I once again
So that you too will understand
There's a ribbon in the sky for our love
My niece is a hooker and my nephew's a junkie too
But they say I have no right to tell them how they
should do
They laugh and say "quit bragging" 'bout the war you
should never have been in
But my mind is so brain-washed I'd prob'bly go back
and do it again
Do...Do...
Do Do Do Do Do...
HMM HMM...
This is not a coincidence
And far more than a lucky chance
But what is that was always meant
Is our ribbon in the sky for our love, love
We can't lose with God on our side
We'll find strength in each tear we cry
From now on it will be you and I
And our ribbon in the sky
Ribbon in the sky
A ribbon in the sky for our love
Do...Do...
Do Do Do Do Do...
HMM HMM...
(Musical Break)
There's a ribbon in the sky for our love
I walk the neighborhood parading my purple heart
With a fear of agent orange that no one will stop
They had me standing on the front line
They had me standing on the front line
They had me standing on the front line
But now I stand at the back of the line when it
comes to gettin' ahead
Repeat 2 times...fade out
That girl thinks that she's so bad
She'll change my tears from joy to sad
She says she keeps the upper hand
'Cause she can please her man
She doesn't use her love to make him weak
She uses love to keep him strong
And inside me there's no room for doubt
That it won't be too long
Before I tell her that I love her
That I want her
That my mind, soul and body needs her
Tell her that I'd love to, that I want to
That I need to do all that I have to
To be in her love
I've been hurting for a long time
And you've been playing for a long time
You know it's true
I've been holding for a long time
And you've been running for a long time
It's time to do what we have to do
That girl, That girl
That girl knows every single man
Would ask her for her hand
But she says her love is much too deep
For them to understand
She says her love has been crying out
But her lover hasn't heard
But what she doesn't realize is that I've listened to every
word
That's why I know I'll tell that I love her
That I want her
That my mind, soul and body needs her
Tell her that I'd love to, that I want to
That I need to do all that I have to
To be in her love
Tell her I love her
That I want her
That my mind and soul and body needs her
Tell her that I'd love to, that I want to
That I need to do all that I have to
To be in her love
That I love her
That I want her
That my mind and soul and body needs her
Tell her that I'd love to, that I want to
That I need to do all that I have to...
Tell her that I love her
That I want her
That my mind and soul and body needs her
Tell her that I'd love to, that I want to
That I need to do all that I have to
To be in her...
That girl, that girl, that girl,
Oh, That girl, that girl, that girl, that girl...

Your love talks to me so loud

Am I seeing what I think I see
Or are my eyes playing tricks on me
'Cause what I see don't make no sense
Looking so good standing over that vent
Earth Venus in broad daylight
The Goddess of Love is in my sight
Gotta catch a hold of myself
'Cause if I don't I'll have nothing left
Imagine you're sitting at ring side
And I'm standing on the inside
And approaching is Miss Matador
I'm on the charge for
The woman in red

Like fine wine she's going straight to my head
The woman in red (Background-The woman in red)

M-M-Miss please pardon me
Now listen to me I can hardly speak
I haven't been this much confused
Since Daddy caught me trying on his shoes
Now, I'm too old to be acting like this
But there's something about her I just can't resist
My heart is beating like a big bass drum
And my mind is saying that girl's the one
Imagine you're sitting at ring side
And I'm standing on the inside
And approaching is Miss Matador
I'm on the charge for
The woman in red (Background-The woman in red)

I look inside my crystal ball of desire
And know why rapid beats my heart
I see the spark, I feel the flame of the fire
Letting me know love wants to start
No more playing around
No more waiting around for the special one to come
No more wearing a frown
No more tears coming down 'cause I know what I want
And I want what I know
Is you
Nobody has to tell me so
It's you, it's you, you're the angel sent from heaven
above
It's you, nobody has to tell me so
It's you, you're that angel sent from heaven above

If only I had not waited I would have picked the

If only I had not waited my life would be undone
If only I had not waited I woul have picked the
wrong one
If only I had not waited for you (Harmonica Solo)
I look behind and what I sight is the mire
So very lonely was my heart
I look ahead I hear the sound of the choir
Singing that love will never part
No more hearing the sound of the rain coming down
No more I can't see the sun
No more hurting for fun 'cause the moment has come
When I know what I want
And I want what I know
Is you
Nobody has to tell me so
It's you, you're the angel sent from heaven above
It's you, nobody has to tell me so
It's you, you're that angel sent from heaven above

I JUST CALLED TO SAY I
LOVE YOU
No New Year's Day to celebrate
No chocolate covered candy hearts to give away
No first of spring
No song to sing
In fact here's just another ordinary day
No April rain
No flowers bloom
No wedding Saturday within the month of June
But what it is, is something true
Made up of these three words that I must say to you
I just called to say I love you
I just called to say how much I care
I just called to say I love you
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart
No summer's high
No warm July
No harvest moon to light one tender August night
No autumn breeze
No falling leaves
Not even time for birds to fly to southern skies
No Libra sun
No Halloween
No giving thanks to all the Christmas joy you bring
But what it is, though old so new
To fill your heart like no three words could ever do
I just called to say I love you
I just called to say how much I care, I do
I just called to say I love you
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart
I just called to say I love you
I just called to say how much I care, I do
I just called to say I love you
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart, of my
heart,
of my heart
I just called to say I love you
I just called to say how much I care, I do
I just called to say I love you
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart, of my
heart,
baby of my heart
It's you
Nobody has to tell me so
It's you, you're the angel sent from heaven above
It's you, nobody has to tell me so
It's you, you're that angel sent from heaven above

If only I had not waited I would have picked the

If only I had not waited my life would be undone
If only I had not waited I would have picked the

If only I had not waited for you

LOVE LIGHT IN FLIGHT
MOMENTS AREN'T MOMENTS
DON'T DRIVE DRUNK
Make me feel like paradise
Give me what I'm missing
Send me to the highest heights
Take me up and away
Tender, warm and serene
Are the words that might come close to having
Remnants of the feelings that we can no longer hide
Mighty, shining and clear
Are but mere expressions that don't come near
To the ever glowing eminence of light in our eyes
tonight
He and his wife have had problems
That he's played off like nothing's wrong
'Til he comes home from work early
Just to find the girl is gone
Oh but he gets into the cupboard
Picks out that bottle of gin
Drinks like there's no tomorrow
And decides to take a spin
I've tasted love so many times
With something always missing
But I know that you got the kind
To take me up and away
I know that our journey
Will be filled with passion, love and pleasure
Touching down where only
Satisfaction’s guaranteed
We won't let our feelings
Auto pilot perfect navigation
Sending us to love bliss
Like no one ever knew could be
Make me feel like paradise
Fill me with your kisses
Make the moment feel just right
Take me up and away
'Cause I have waited all my life / Flying high
For the one worth giving / Love sky high
And I don't have to think twice / Flying high
Let's go up and away
(Background)
Love light in flight
Fuel injection passion

We need just to feel it
To know that our loving has the power
Showing that these feelings
Emanate from you and me
With love high aviation
We will fly forever and one hour
Giving us the always
To live out all our fantasies
Make me feel like paradise
Give me what I'm missing
Send me to the highest heights
Take me up and away
I've tasted love so many times / Flying high
With something always missing / Love sky high
But I know that you got the kind / Flying high
To take me up and away

'Cause moments aren't moments
Until they are moments like this magic moment of
ours
And magic's not magic
Until it is magic like magical love in our hearts
Feeling with tender love-bloom
No don't drive drunk
Don't drive drunk, no
Don't drive drunk
Mothers Against Drunk Drivers are mad
Gentle, quiet, so soft
Are the wings of love that can send us off
To an ever splendor unknown to all in our time
Trusting in the unknown and giving in to what feelings
have shown
Will take us to altered intimacies in our lives
Where we'll find
Teenager at a live party
Says, "give me one for the road"
But he's already so inebriated
If you lit a smoke he'd explode
But bartender says, "I don't think so"
Young one says, "I can deal"
Staggering out he says, "check you all later"
But I really don't think he will
That moments aren't moments
Until they are moments like this magic moment of ours
And magic's not magic
Until it is magic like magical love in our hearts
Feeling with tender love-bloom
No don't drive drunk
Don't drive drunk, no

Everytime I think our love is drifting apart
Something always throws it back together
And everytime I think I've found someone new for my
heart
After one kiss my heart tells me never
Oh everyone has got a weakness in life
Girl, you just happen to be mine
Oh everyone has got a certain weakness in life
Your love just happens to be mine
Everytime I think your love has no more to give
You do something more to take me higher
And everytime I think that for someone else I could live
I'd be living love out as a liar

OVERJOYED
Over time, I've building my castle of love
Just for two, though you never knew you were my
reason
I've gone much too far for you now to say
That I've got to throw my castle away
Over dreams, I have picked out a perfect come true
Though you never knew it was of you I've been
dreaming
The sandman has come from too far away
For you to say come back some other day
And though you don't believe that they do
They do come true
For did my dreams
Come true when I looked at you
And maybe too, if you would believe
You too might be
Overjoyed, over loved, over me
IN SQUARE CIRCLE
PART-TIME LOVER
Call up, ring once, hang up the phone
To let me know you made it home
Don't want nothing to be wrong with part-time lover
If she isn't with me I'll blink the lights
To let you know tonight's the night
For me and you my part-time lover
We are undercover passion on the run
Chasing love up against the sun
We are strangers by day, lovers by night
Knowing it's so wrong, but feeling so right
If I'm with friends and we should meet
Just pass me by, don't even speak
Know the word's "discreet" with part-time lovers
Over hearts, I have painfully turned every stone
Just to find, I had found what I've searched to discover
I've come much too far for me now to find
The love that I've sought can never be mine
And though you don't believe that they do
They do come true
For did my dreams
Come true when I looked at you
And maybe too, if you would believe
You too might be
Overjoyed, over loved, over me
And though the odds say improbable
What do they know
For in romance
All true love needs is a chance
And maybe with a chance you will find
You too like I
Overjoyed, over loved, over you, over you
LOVE SONGS
UNTIL YOU COME BACK TO
ME
Clarence Paul, M. Broadnax and Stevie Wonder
Though you don't call anymore
I sit and wait in vain
I guess I'll rap on your door
Tap on your window pane
I want to tell you Baby
The changes I've been going through
Missing you.
Listen you
'till you come back to me
That's what I'm gonna do
Why did you have to decide
You had to set me free
I'm gonna swallow my pride
I'm gonna beg you to (please baby please) see me
I'm gonna walk by meself
Just to prove that my love is true
Oh, for you baby
'till you come back to me
That's what I'm gonna do
Living for you my dear
Is like living in a world of constant fear
In my plea, I've got to make you see
That our love is dying
Although your phone you ignore
Somehow I must explain
I'm gonna rap on your door
Tap on your window pane
I'm gonna camp on your step
Until I get through to you
I've got to change your view baby
'till you come back to me
That's what I'm gonna do
But if there's some emergency
Have a male friend to ask for me
So then she won't peek its really you my part-time lover
We are undercover passion on the run
Chasing love up against the sun
We are strangers by day, lovers by night
Knowing it's so wrong, but feeling so right
We are undercover passion on the run
Chasing love up against the sun
We are strangers by day, lovers by night
Knowing it's so wrong, but feeling so right
(Repeat)
I've got something that I must tell
Last night someone rang our doorbell
And it was not you my part-time lover
And then a man called our exchange
But didn't want to leave his name
I guess that two can play the game
Of part-time lovers
You and me, part-time lovers
But, she and he, part-time lovers

After hours
Party hand in hand
After Shebeen
Terror strikes again
Just because they're dark 'n' lovely
Just because they're dark 'n' lovely
Dark 'n' lovely Dark 'n' lovely
Dark 'n' lovely
CHARACTERS
YOU WILL KNOW
The whole planet's watchin'
And the Sun God is watchin', too
Hey there Botha
Yes, we are watchin' you
Spirits can do
Jah will stop this reign
Watch our world turn
To help those in pain
Just because they're dark 'n' lovely
Just because they're dark 'n' lovely
Just because they're dark 'n' lovely
Just because they're dark 'n' lovely
Dark 'n' lovely Dark 'n' lovely
(Repeat to fade)
Lonely one of young so brokenhearted
Traveling down the right road of life
Using pharmaceutical extractions
To find the paradise
Finds the high but comes down feeling lower
Gets down on their knees and starts to pray
Looking up to heaven for the answer
They hear a voice that says
You will know
Troubled heart you'll know
Problems have solutions
Trust and I will show
You will know
Troubled heart you'll know
Every life has reason
For I made it so
Single parent trying to raise their children
But they would much rather not alone
Reaches out to find that special someone
To make their house a home
Finds someone but no one is the right one
Gets down on their knees and starts to pray
Looking up to heaven for the answer
They hear a voice that says
You will know
Lonely heart you'll know
Problems have solutions
Trust and I will show
You will know
Lonely heart you'll know
Every life has reason
For I made it so
(repeat 1st and 2nd chorus)
DARK 'N' LOVELY
There is a place
On earth's motherland
Where a people
Die in bantu stands
Manchild at eight
Will face guns of hate
Womanchild's fate
Is life second rate
You can't tell your pa and mama
Where we're going going till after we've been there
'Cause that might make their poor heads worry
And worrying can cause grey hair
And one thing might lead to another
And if there's any trouble they'll blame it on me
(Repeat)
WITH EACH BEAT OF MY
HEART
Honey, sweet
I've got something to say to you in privacy
Something I'd like for you to hear
And only your ears alone
Secretly, I've been admiring you intensely
So much so I'd like to settle down with you
And make a home
You are my first breath
My first smile
And my morning cup of tea
Yours is the love
That I pray for
Before I go to sleep
From the time I saw your face
I knew no other could erase
My loving you with each beat of my heart
IN YOUR CORNER
Until the day I heard you speak
I didn't know that sound was sweet
Me hearing you in each beat of my heart
I hear tell there's big fun tonight
On the corner of Main and Dog-Meat-Bite
Friday midnights would not be right
Without Redd's hot party and a nasty fight
There's a time when playing ends
And the serious begins
Like the love that I felt from the start
With each beat of my heart
But I'll be in your corner
I'll be in your corner, if they do
I'll be in your corner
I'll be in your corner, if they do
You can't renege cause it's going to be alive
Fine women, lots of liquor and stuff for your mind
Now where we're going they don't like your kind
But they'll cool out when you tell them you're a friend
of mine
'Cause I'll be in your corner
I'll be in your corner, if they do
I'll be in your corner
I'll be in your corner, if they do
You can't tell your pa and mama
Where we're going going till after we've been there
'Cause that might make their poor heads worry
And worrying can cause grey hair
And one thing might lead to another
And if there'e any trouble they'll blame it on me
I think we just might have two to go
The pretty looking over here from the middle of the
floor
We'll make a b-line to Hotel La Sin
Where you'll do the talking to get us in
And I'll be in your corner
I'll be in your corner, if they do
We shoulda been long gone 'cause this place is hot
'Cause in the corner there are two brothers that are
undercover cops
If they stop us for questionning mum is the word
'Cause a question not answered is an answer not heard
Honey, sweet
I soared into a heaven's galaxy
So hypnotized was I
From seeing all the magic in your eyes
So I bring
To you what's been a lifetime fantasy
Of being with the only one who can
Create my paradise
You are my first breath
My first smile
And my morning cup of tea
Yours is the love
That I pray for
Before I go to sleep
From the time I saw your face
I knew no other could erase
My loving you with each beat of my heart
Until the day I heard you speak
I didn't know that sound was sweet
Me hearing you in each beat of my heart
There's a time when playing ends
And the serious begins
Like the love that I felt from the start
With each beat of my heart
There's a time when playing ends
And the serious begins
Like the love that I felt from the start
With each beat of my heart
And I'll be in your corner
I'll be in your corner, if they do
I'll be in your corner
I'll be in your corner, if they do

ONE OF A KIND
There we were two lonely souls
Existing from day to day
Feeling love would never
Come our way
Watching lover share their bliss
Sadly wishing only if
Believing that we had to live
Life like this
But Like a bolt of lightning
As when two stormy clouds collide
We made a joyful happening
To our lives
Now we're as happy as can be
Me loving you and you loving me
Two hearts intertwined
Which makes us one of a kind
Feeling the charge of a love evermore
Knowing that love is enough to live for
It feels so fine
Sharing love one of a kind
One of a kind now baby
Your love and mine, such ecstasy
One of kind sweet darling
The only way love is meant to be
United love so fine
Living in love one of a kind
It feels nothing but fine
Sharing our love one of kind
-Harmonica SoloIf we had a second chance
At living a second time
We'd change everything but our love
In our lives
'Cause like a big disaster
Lost in a never-ending night
We light a light of magic
Now we're as happy as can be
Me loving you and you loving me
Two hearts intertwined
Which makes us one of a kind
Feeling the charge of a love evermore
Knowing that love is enough to live for
It feels so fine
Sharing love one of a kind
One of a kind, now baby
Your love and mind, such ecstasy
One of a kind, sweet darling
The only way love is meant to be
(Repeat)
It's gettin' ready to drop
It's gettin' ready to shock
Somebody done turned up the heater
An' a it's gettin' ready to pop
Crevices in your pantry
Now what do we have in here
Havin' a day time nightmare
Has always been your biggest fear
Skeletons in your closet
Itchin' to come outside
Messin' with your conscience
In a way your face can't hide
Oh things are gettin' real funky
Down at the old corral
And it's not the skunks that are stinkin'
It's the stinkin' lies you tell
Bridge
What did your mama tell you about lies
She said it wasn't polite to tell a white one
What did your daddy tell you about lies
He said one white lie turns into a black one
So, it's gettin' ready to blow
It's gettin' ready to show
Somebody shot off at the mouth and
We're getting ready to know
MJ ... Gonna get it, her love
SW ... Gonna get it, her kisses
MJ ... Gonna get it, her heart
BOTH … Gonna get it, get it
Oh things are gettin' real crucial
Up the old wazoo
Yet you cry, why am I the victim?
When the culprit's y-o-u
MJ... Miss Lady Girl
Has buried her feelings deep inside
Cause she don't want
To be taken for another ride
Bridge
What did your mama tell you about lies
She said it wasn't polite to tell a white one
What did your daddy tell you about lies
He said one white lie turns into a black one
She's sick and tired
of being on that lonely merry-go-round
She just don't know
That the ultimate love
Of her life is about to be found
So, it's gettin' ready to blow
It's gettin' ready to show
Somebody shot off at the mouth and
We're gettin' ready to know
It's gettin' ready to drop
It's gettin' ready to shock
Somebody done turning the heater
An' a it's gettin' ready to pop
It's gettin' ready to seep
You're gettin' ready to freak
Somebody done picked up the talk box
And gettin' ready to speak
It's gettin' ready to jive
It's gettin' ready to gel
Somebody done gone let the lid off
And it's gettin' ready to smell
They're gettin' ready to deal
You're gettin' ready to ill
Somebody done just dropped the big dime
And they're gettin' ready to squeal
It's gettin' ready to turn
We're gettin' ready to learn
Somebody done fired up the brimstone
And you're gettin' ready to burn
It's gettin' ready to shake
You're gettin' ready to ache
Somebody done snitched to the news crew
And it's gettin' ready to break
You're gettin' ready to lie
They're gettin' ready to spy
Somebody' s been put on the hot seat
And you're gettin' ready to fry
GET IT
SKELETONS
SW... No one's gonna get it
No one's gonna get it, oh no
But someone's gotta get it
And I know that I will be the one who will
SW... Miss Lady Girl
Is putting her love on the shelf
Cause she don't want
To be hurt by nobody else
She's taken her heart
And put it away under lock and key
But it's high time
Miss Lady Girl sets her heart free and gives her love to
me
MJ.. . Some think that diamond rings, fancy cars
Will make a big impression
But I know that all she needs is my tender
Love and affection
Cause she still says
SW... They think that ready cash, flashy clothes
Will fill her life with laughter
But I've got the very thing that she needs
True love forever after
Then no more will she say
That no one's gonna get it
No one's gonna get it, oh no
But someone's gotta get it
And I feel that I will be the one who will
MJ ... No one's gonna got it
No one's gonna get It, oh no
But someone's gonna get it
And I know that I will be the one who will
Gonna get it, her love
Gonna get it, her kisses
Gonna get it, her heart
Gonna get it, gonna get it, etc.
GALAXY PARADISE
You are so unpredictable
When I am not
You are so irresistible
That I canUt stop
You say my name
And start walking on heaven
What flying saucer did you come here on
What extraterrestrial planet are you from
You're much more than life
You are from galaxy paradise
What flying saucer did you come here on
What will they say when they find that you're gone
Say you'll stay in my life
Queen from galaxy paradise
You are so unforgettable
When I will not
Our love's far more than sensual
And twice as hot
You touch my hand
And I know that we'll love forever
What flying saucer did you come here on
What extraterrestrial planet are you from
You're much more than life
You are from galaxy paradise
What flying saucer did you come here on
What will they say when they find that you're gone
Say you'll stay in my life
Queen from galaxy paradise
That no one's gonna get it
No one's gonna get it, oh no
But someone's gotta get it
And I feel that I will be the one who will

CRYIN' THROUGH THE NIGHT
FREE
Yes I am cryin'
I got the blues and I don't know why
Yes I am cryin'
I got the blues, I'm so dissatisfied
'Cause I've been cryin' through the night
Tears on my pillow
And I have been cryin through the night
Weeping like a weeping willow
From cryin' through the night
Hear me cryin' through the night
Free like the river
Flowin' freely through infinity
Free to be sure of
What I am and who I need not be
Free from all worries
Worries prey on oneself's troubled mind
Freer than the clock's hands
Tickin' way the times
Freer than the meaning of free that man defines
Life running through me
Till I feel my father God has called
I am lonely, downhearted and sad
'Cause I've lost the best woman that I ever had
To a friend of mine
Just can't figure out how it could be
That somebody like him could take her away from me
And it's on my mind
Nearly all the time
Yes I am cryin'
I got the blues and I don't know why
Yes I am cryin'
I got the blues, I'm so dissatisfied
'Cause I've been cryin' through the night
Tears on my pillow
And I have been cryin through the night
Weeping like a weeping willow
From cryin' through the night
Hear me cryin' through the night
Now I know just how best friends can be
'Cause he made sure you knew your best was with me
And it's on my mind
Here's a lesson much greater that wealth
Keep your business to you, yourself and no one else
And your smiling eyes
Won't be cryin' like mine
Yes I'm cryin'
I got the blues and I don't know why
Yes I'm cryin'
I got the blues, I'm so dissatisfied
'Cause I've been cryin' through the night
Tears on my pillow
And I have been cryin' through the night
Weeping like a weeping willow
From cryin' through the night
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh
I'm like a weeping willow
From cryin' through the night
Oh, Oh, yeah
Hear me cryin', cryin', I'm cryin', cryin'
I'm cryin' baby, cryin' baby yeah
Even a fool can tell
That so many tears sho' enough done fell
And pretty soon before you know
I'll have enough tears to fill a water well
Hear me cryin' through the night
Oh yeah, cryin' through the night
-BreakAnd it's on my mind
Nearly all the time
Yes I'm cryin'
I got the blues and I don't know why
Yes I'm cryin'
I got the blues, I'm so dissatisfied
'Cause I've been cryin' through the night
Tears on my pillow
And I have been cryin' through the night
Weeping like a weeping willow
From cryin' through the night
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh
I'm weeping like a weeping willow
Oh, Oh, cryin' tears, cryin' tears
Through the night
Me having nothin'
But possessing riches more than all
And I'm free
To be nowhere
But in every place I need to be
Freer than a sunbeam
Shinning through my soul
Free from feelin' heat or knowing bitter cold
Free from conceiving the beginning
For that's the infinite start
I'm gone - gone but still living
Life goes on without a beating heart
Free like a vision
That the mind of only you can see
Freer than a raindrop
Falling from the sky
Freer than a smile in a baby's sleepin' eyes
I'm free like a river
Flowin' freely to infinity
I'm free to be sure of what
I am and who I need not be
I'm much freer - like the meaning of the word free that
crazy man defines
Free - free like the vision that
The mind of only you are ever gonna see
Free like the river my life
Goes on and on through infinity
COME LET ME MAKE YOUR
LOVE COME DOWN
There's a girl in my life about 4'10"
She's the one who brings me morning joy
And brings me joy when my day ends
She says my life will never have no problems
That her love cannot fix
And she proves her worth true
Every time she goes into her love bag of tricks
Cause like glue to a stamp
Like gum on a shoe
She and I are going to stick
She's got everything I want
Everything I need
And if she ain't got it
She knows how to find the remedy
And she tells me
Come let me make your love come down
(Repeat 7 times)
MY EYES DON'T CRY
I was a lonely no one
Living in a vacuum as life's debris
Victimized as one whose self deprivation
Had made for my outer insecurity
I was a he ain't nothin'
Living in the slums of love's misery
Starving from the lack of sweet affection
'Til you came to rescue me
My eyes don't cry no more
My heart don't ache no more
Since you walk through my door
I don't have to no longer be blue
My eyes don't cry no more
My heart don't ache no more
Now that love's touched my soul
All my lonely nights alone are through
I was a Mr. Lonely
Seeing only darkness in the bright of day
Blind even though my eyes were wide opened
But then your love sunshined my way
My eyes don't cry no more
My heart don't ache no more
Since you walk through my door
I don't have to no longer be blue
My eyes don't cry no more
My heart don't ache no more
Now that love's touched my soul
All my lonely nights alone are through
I don't cry, baby baby I don't cry
I don't cry, baby baby I don't cry
I don't cry, baby baby I don't cry
(repeat)
My life was without reason
Sinking in a hell that had no space or time
Falling to the burning pit of pain and sorrow
Until you saved this life of mine
She's got everything I want
Everything I need
And if she ain't got it
She knows how to find the remedy
My eyes don't cry no more
My heart don't ache no more
Since you walk through my door
I don't have to no longer be blue
And she tells me
My eyes don't cry no more
My heart don't ache no more
Now that love's touched my soul
All my lonely nights alone are through
Come let me make your love come down
(Repeat 7 times)
She says you'll never worry in your life
As long as you come and let me
Make your love come down
I call her Miss Satisfaction
Cause she keeps me satisfied
She gets my automatic smile
When she whispers Steveland, I love you, I love you,
I love you
Such a lovely world is my life
Since that girl has come inside
And everyday that I live
I'm gonna do my best to keep her satisfied
I don't cry, baby baby I don't cry
I don't cry, baby baby I don't cry
I don't cry, baby baby I don't cry
I don't cry, baby baby I don't cry
My eyes don't cry no more
My heart don't ache no more
My nights are not lonely no more
My tears don't flow no more
My eyes don't cry, my eyes don't cry, my eyes don't
cry no more
Our love will never have no problem
That the both of us can't fix
45
I'm gonna go out to the park
Where you feel the joy in every heart
That's what I need to start this day off right
Oh, I'll find a place for you and me
Underneath the shade of a lover's tree
Fun day should be each day in all our lives
This is love day
A celebration
A day on every calendar that's set aside for
everyone to give
Let me solo, let me solo, let me solo...solo

And it is so fine
Its the kind you'd love to last you
Until the end of time
We've talked of love, we've talked of life
And what would make the world so nice
We've walked the sand by lover's sea
I've held your body close to me
And it is so pretty
How I'd love to know
For if I had a chance to hold you
I'd never let you go
You're my queen in the black
With your time-stopping body

With your voice that's sweet as candy

Miss Ebony, you really turn me on
There's not a day that passes by
That I don't have you on my mind
If this ain't love I have inside
Then my heart's telling me a lie
Cause it feels so special
And it feels so right
And if I could I know I'd love you
For the rest of my life
You're my queen in the black

THESE THREE WORDS
When was the last time
That they heard you say
Mother or father, I love you
And when was the last time
That they heard you say
Daughter or son, I love you
Ones you say you cherish everyday
Can instantly be taken away
Then you'd say I know this can't be true
When you never took the time
To simply tell them "I love you"
When was the last time
That they heard you say
Sister or brother, I love you
And when was the last time
That they heard you say
Darling or best friend, I love you
The one for whom you'd give your very life
Could be taken in the twinkling of an eye
Through you tears you'd ask why did you go
Knowing you didn't always show
Just how much you loved them so
These three words
Sweet and simple
These three words
Short and kind
These three words
Always kindles
An aching heart to smile inside
I know a family
Who hasn't a cent to their name
And yet the joy and love they have between them
They always claim
And when one's called from life
The survived mourn the lost
46
And will never be the same
Yet they rejoice
In knowing they gave them their all
These three words
Sweet and simple
These three words
Short and kind
These three words
Always kindles
(repeat and fade)
EACH OTHER'S THROAT
We are supposed to be sisters and brothers
But all we do is constantly dog one another
We are supposed to act as each other's cover
But we keep at each other's throat
Each other's throat
Each other's throat
Yo, it ain't no joke
We're at each other's throat -Aowl, Aowl
We are supposed to spread love and not evil
But we've been acting more like heathens than people
Treating our fellow-man far worse than illegal
Cause we keep at each other's throat
Each other's throat
Each other's throat
Yo, it ain't no joke
We're at each other's throat -Aowl, Aowl
Ut oh, 11 o'clock pm and here's the news
Another fatality caused by a family feud
Charged, tried, sentenced by the jury of a brother's gun
Made sister's fiancee's wedding never to be sung
He didn't like the way he treated the girl
So the boy played God, pow, he ended his world
He made a plea for temporary insanity
But left his sister insane permanently
This ain't new, this stuff happens everyday
Somebody doesn't like someone so they blow them
away
Too fast for reason, too quick to negotiate
Regret and sorrow happens a split second too late
Jealousy for power, greed for possession
Selfishness so you give someone a faked out impression
Speaking of which I'm truly not impressed
So if seeing is believin'-I don't wanna see the mess
Heartless are we on the straight with no chaser
As if for negativity we got the vapors
Know as I love me so I do love my neighbor
Cause we are too busy at each other's throat
Each other's throat
Each other's throat
Yo, it ain't no joke
We're at each other's throat -Aowl, Aowl

IF SHE BREAKS YOUR HEART
Featuring Lead Vocals By Kimberly Brewer
My love is gone with yesterday, my love is gone
with yesterday
We had a love for all seasons
At least that's how it used to be
There was no time, space, or reason
More special to us than we
My love continued to flourish
As a flower blooms in spring
Then you tried to play love for silly
But the loser is the fool who doesn't play
love by the rules
If she breaks your heart
I will send a robin to sing happy tunes for you
Cause I may not be around to do the things
I used to do
And if you awake to find you're lost
I will send a glad star to lead you on your way
Cause the love I felt inside
Has gone away with yesterday
My love is gone with yesterday, my love is gone
with yesterday
There was a time when forever
Was common-place for me and you
Laughing, loving, sharing, caring
Seemed to be made just for us two
But I kept on building the dream world
That I thought was you and I
Sorry, I'm sadly mistaken
Cause our castle in the sky
Has turned into a mere goodbye
Well if she breaks your heart
I will send a robin to sing happy tunes for you
Cause I may not be around to do the things
I used to do
And if you awake to find you're lost
I will send a glad star to lead you on your way
Cause the love I felt inside
Has gone away with yesterday
(Repeat)
My love is gone away with yesterday, my love is gone
with yesterday
(Repeat)
GOTTA HAVE YOU
Never been too much for watching
Cause there's too many things to view
And when eyes begin to wander
They more than likely never get through
But beyond my own temptation
I'm enticed by what I see
And I won't feel satisfaction
Until she's where I want her to be
I gotta have you, I gotta have you
I gotta have you for me
You are a sight for sore eyes to see
I gotta make you my reality
I gotta have you, I gotta have you
I gotta have you for me
You are a sight for sore eyes to see
Come on girl, make you my reality
Never been too much for talking
Cause there's too many things to say
And by the time that I start speaking
The right moment has slipped away
But I must break this old tradition
And try to muster up the words
And though someone else may have said them
I'll say them in way you've never heard
I gotta have you, I gotta have you
I gotta have you for me
You are a sight for sore eyes to see
I've gotta make you my reality
I gotta have you, I gotta have you
I gotta have you for me
You are a sight for sore eyes to see
Come on girl, make you my reality
Gotta be, gotta be, gotta be reality, baby
Gotta be, gotta be, gotta be reality, baby
(Repeat)
Never been too much for touching
Cause there's too many things to feel
Plus there's too much disappointment
When you find out those feelings ain't real
But here's a time when inner senses
Are gonna have to shine the light
Cause I have overly committed
Myself in thinking that you're alright
I gotta have you, I gotta have you
I gotta have you for me
You are a sight for sore eyes to see
I gotta make you my reality
I gotta have you, I gotta have you
I gotta have you for me
You are a sight for sore eyes to see
Come on girl, make you my reality
Gotta be, gotta be, gotta be reality, baby
Gotta be, gotta be, gotta be reality, baby
(Repeat)

MAKE SURE YOU'RE SURE
CHEMICAL LOVE
LIGHTING UP THE CANDLES
Well the night is young
And the stars are out
And your eyes are all aglow
And you say you feel
Ways you've never felt
But are you sure, make sure you're sure
People goin' round
Tellin' others they are square
Around and round in circles
Is a ride that goes somewhere
All you need to fly
Is a heart dying to try
A chemical love
It's a chemical love
Lighting up the candles, lighting up our love
Lighting up the candles, lighting up our love
Well, the wine is sweet
And the music sways
And your lips are so divine
And you say you know
That you're falling in love
Now, let's be mature, make sure you're sure
I'm not accustomed to wearing my feelings
In a place that's so obvious to see
But if eyes don't lie
There's a chance that you are not fooling yourself
and me
Well the night is through
And the sun's come out
And so too has your lovely smile
And you vow to stay
In these arms always
Can you endure, now are you sure
Love can be so insecure
So please be sure
I GO SAILING
I took a worthless trip
Down life's avenue
Just to try to find a way to smile again
While I was on my way
I met a wise man who said
That happiness you only find within
I learned my lesson then
So I go sailing
Through the rivers of my mind
I go sailing
Be surprised what you can find
I go sailing
Through the rivers of my mind
Take a chance on your mind
Be surprised what you'll find
I took a friend's advice
Who said go up and away
Take the magic of a mystery tour
But I felt so all alone
Though I could almost touch the stars
I started missing things I touched before
The tour was such a bore
So I go sailing
Through the rivers of my mind
I go sailing
Be surprised what you can find
I go sailing
Through the rivers of my mind
Take a chance on your mind
Be surprised what you'll find
(Repeat)
Ain't nothin to it
Gettin' cash when you are broke
Doin' lots of time
Is worth a little snort of coke
Infected needles
Can aid you in no time
Through chemical love
You've got a chemical love
Some people crave for physical love
Some people crave material love
Yet fewer crave for spiritual love
You've got a chemical jones
You've got a chemical love
Yeah, a chemical love
You've got chemical love
Some people find themselves hooked on the
weirdest things
That have nothing to do with living
God's gift to us is our life what's ours to him
If it's not our love, then nothing's given, given
Some people crave for physical love
Some people crave material love
Yet fewer crave for spiritual love
You've got a chemical jones
For a chemical love
Yes it's true
The best things in life are free
Not material
Chemical or physically
Try it for yourself
You'll get a guaranteed high
From spiritual love, natural miracle drug
Lighting up the candles
To what use to be
Tender memories in moments of love
Happy times and bad times
All seem wonderful
When you have a toast to moments of love
Lighting up the candles, lighting up our love
Lighting up the candles
To what use to be
Tender memories in moments of love
Happy times and bad times
All seem wonderful
When you have a toast to moments of love
I really think we could have made it
To that forever and a day
But destiny and fate decided
They would get in our way
Lighting up the candles
Wishing you the best
Like the happiness in moments of love
For lighting up the candles
Spark the memories
Helping us to see more moments of love
I really think we could have made it
To that forever and a day
But destiny and fate decided
They would get in our way
For lighting up the candles
Spark the memories
Helping us to see the need for what was
Helping us to see more moments of love
Lighting up the candles, lighting up our love
Lighting up the candles, lighting up our love
Lighting up the candles, lighting up our love
Some people crave for physical love
Some people crave material love
Yet fewer crave for spiritual love
You've got a chemical jones
You've got a chemical love
You've got a chemical love
For a chemical drug
Some people crave for physical love
Some people crave material love
Yet fewer crave for spiritual love
You need a spiritual jones
For that spiritual love
I'm talking to you
We all could do with spiritual jones
For some spiritual love

EDGE OF ETERNITY
TABOO TO LOVE
Wolf tickets are all you say I'm selling

Taboo to love
So when you're ready
Really, truly ready
Holding strong and steady
I'll be good to go
Cause if you start it
I am gonna finish it
I am gonna knock it
Like it ain't been knocked before
CONVERSATION PEACE
RAIN YOUR LOVE DOWN
Such a lovely world was made for you and me
Wondrous life for us to taste, touch, smell, hear, and see
But one glance from outside looking at our world state
Clearly displays we don't appreciate it at all
Rain your love down won't you rain down your love
Let it drench us like the sun from above
Such ability inside you and me
Made to do anything and be all we can be
But one bird's eye view at us does show, oh it shows
That against God's Plan we've let it go, oh no
Rain your love down won't you rain down your love
Let it drench us like the sun from above
Rain your love down let it rain down today
So that it may wash all our sins away
You'd think the signs would make a difference,
Oh, make a difference
You'd think fire next time instead of rain
Would cause us to make a change
The world has gone insane
Rain your love down won't you rain down your love
Let it drench us like the sun from above
Rain your love down let it rain down today
So that it may wash all our sins away, let it rain
Rain your love down let it pour on us, please
Cleansing us from hunger, hate, war, and greed
Rain your love down, won't you let it start over
again
So we can live up to your Master Plan
Rain your love down, oh won't you let it start
Wash the wicked minds and the...
I know they're sick, you know they're sick at heart,
yeah
Rain your love down won't you let it rain
Rid this world of drugs, disease, crime, and pain
Getting with this
Know you're gonna be
Stepping off the edge of eternity
Just one kiss
Know it's you and me
Stepping off to the edge of eternity
Dead air time is all you say you're hearing
Well that shows how much you don't comprehend
Cause it's not in the loud but in the quiet
Where lies the thing that will make your head spin
So when you're willin'
Really, truly willin'
Not just simply illin'
You just let me know
Cause when you get it
I ain't gonna quit it
Girl, I'm gonna hit it
Like it ain't been hit before
Gettin' with this
Know you're gonna be
Stepping off to the edge of eternity
Just one kiss
Know it's you and me
Stepping off to the edge of eternity
Pie in the sky is all you say I can deliver
Well wait til you feel what I've got in store
One hundred and eighty pounds of good and plenty
And when you've got the need I've got some more
So when you mean it
Really, truly mean it
Not just scheming to get to it
We can get it on
Cause if you woo it
I'm going to get to it
Girl, we're gonna do it
Until every ounce is gone
Are you telling me your eyes
Met hers to your surprise
But why, my heart?
How loud must you hear me say
Have fun but don't play
Taboo to love
Where's your lantern or candlelight
So to guide you through the hidden spaces
Through its said truth unveils all lies
Feelings can't be left to roam
So you say you've lost your head
But you use your heart instead
Beware of love
This is not like you at all
Who vowed to never fall
Taboo to love, taboo to love
Taboo (Background)
To love, taboo to love
Taboo (Background)
Where's your raincoat and over-boots
To protect you in stormy weather
Though its said when you walk in truth
Love can bring you no harm
So you've made up in your mind
You'll leave your fears behind
So brave my heart
I guess your heart has made you see
It's better to be free
No taboo to love
I guess your heart has made you see
It's much better to be free
No taboo to love
No taboo to love
Taboo (Background)
To love, no taboo to love
Taboo (Background)
To love, no taboo to love
Taboo (Background)
To love, no taboo to love
Taboo (Background)
No taboo to love
Gettin' with this
Know you're gonna be
Stepping off to the edge of eternity
Just one kiss
Know it's you and me
Stepping off to the edge of eternity
Are you ready to step off the edge into eternity
Really, really ready to step off the edge into eternity
Cause if you're ready to step off the edge into eternity
We can step right off the edge into eternity
(Repeat)
Clear our spirits give our minds new software
With your lesson on honor, respect, trust, and care
Rain your love down I beg for human sake
For only you can get us out of this state
Rain your love down on all mankind
Cause we are out of order and so out of line

TAKE THE TIME OUT
I'M NEW
Lying out on the street, there's a man
That needs somewhere to sleep
And a bag-lady digs, through the trash
Hoping to find some food to eat
In the cold winter's snow, walks a boy
That needs shoes for his feet
In an old run-down house, there's a child
In a crib that needs some heat
In the dark of the night, a young man
Searches for a guiding light
And a young woman cries in despair
Cause she feels alone in life
You might ask yourself what in the hell
Does that have to do with me
Well, here is your wake up call...
"Everything!"
Cause we all play a part in each other's existence
Try to envision you as the oldest living someone
Being every night and day all alone
Going through ages and ages, places and spaces
With never finding that someone to call your own
Take the time out to love someone
Reach your arms out and hug someone
Be it king or some homeless one
We are all one underneath the sun
Take the time out to be right there
Take the time out to show you care
You'll be so glad when the day is done
You took the time out to love someone
There's a man in a house where they're selling crack
Yet he's trying to be strong
But when lost in the sea, of no hope
He must be saved from wrong
Don't say what you won't do, if for days
You had no food to eat
Nor extremes you won't go, for a bed, shoes
Or if your baby needed heat
You do not have the right to pre-judge
If you don't share your strength
And you can't say you're down for the fight
If you won't go the length
Now I don't really care what you feel
If you don't feel for life
And don't care what you think if your words
Don't have ways and actions that perpetuate life
Take the time out to love someone
Reach your arms out and hug someone
Be it king or some homeless one
We are all one underneath the sun
Take the time out to be right there
Take the time out to show you care
You'll be so glad when the day is done
You took the time out to love someone
(Repeat)
I think it's time to...
Take the time out to love someone
Reach your arms out and hug someone
Be it king or some homeless one
We are all one underneath the sun
Take the time out to be right there
Take the time out to show you care
You'll be so glad when the day is done
You took the time out to love someone
(Repeat)
Like a treasure chest of dreams long forgotten
Hidden for good in a stolen lost and found
But just when fate was calling quits
Love appeared in the midst of despair, came and turned
your life around
I'm new, new like the first day of spring
New like a nightingale that's just learned to sing
I'm new, new like the very start of dawn
Like a child that's first born with your love, I'm new
You're standing amongst a crowd of six billion people
Crying out for help, but no one understands
Cause much to your dismay, you've been taken far away
To a land where joy is pain and sorrow's a happy man
Where an aching heart's the sign of the mighty
And a love-filled heart looks down upon with fault and
shame
But at the very instant all was through, lady lucks
appears, says "love can do"
And changed you like a Christian who's been born
again
I'm new, new like the fresh morning dew
New like a work of art that's finally through
I'm new, new like a first flight of a dove
So safe and secure with your love, I'm new
Love took a long time coming to me
But I've gotta say
I owe my thanks to him for sending you my way, hey
Cause I'm new, new like the first winter snow
Like the start of forever, with infinity to go
I'm new, new like the birth of the sun
Forever young I will be
Cause with your love, I'm new
New like from a restful night of sleep
New like a starving man that's had food to eat
I'm new, nothing compares nor can compete
Sharing with you the sweetness of your love, I'm
new
MY LOVE IS WITH YOU
I was just walking down the street
Looking forward to seeing the friends I was to meet
Yet what happened so tragically
Really makes for no sense at all
Suddenly two guys confronted me
Saying I was in the wrong turf, angrily
They said their colors were black but I was wearing
gray
I started to turn to go back
They up and blew me away
My love is with you where ever you are
My love is with, where ever you are - (repeat)
Though my life they've taken
They can't take what we've shared
Spread the love I've given
And I'll be there
I was out playing with my friends
You know, doing silly things that kids do at ten
But the crossfire I was caught in
Should not have been in the first place
A dropped Monte Carlo came to a screech
Someone yelled "nobody gets away with dissent me"
Across the street a man pulled his nine
Everybody started to run
A shower of bullets rang out
Mistakenly my life was done, oh
My love is with you where ever you are
My love is with, where ever you are - (repeat)
Though my life they've taken
They can't take what we've shared
Spread the love I've given
I'll be there
My love is with you where ever you are
My love is with, where ever you are - (repeat)
When you're joyful
When you're lonely
When you're happy
When tears are streaming right down your face
In the morning
In the noon time
In the evening
In the wee wee hours of the night time hour
In the summer
In the springtime
In the autumn
In the cold long winter, winter nights
My love is with you
My love is with you my best friend
My love is with you my brother
My love is with you my sister
My love is with you my mother
My love is with you my father
I'm with you - (repeat)
Ban the hand gun - chant
TREAT MYSELF
Lyrics By Stephanie Andrews
There's a place I can go
When the tension is high and I'm feeling low
In a falsh I can be in an another space
As a different me, have a new id.
I think I'll treat myself to all the pretty places in my
head
Yes, I'm going to treat myself to all the pretty places
in my head
There's no rich, there's no poor
Everything is love no such thing as "war"
There's no black and no white
Rainbow colors they, dress the day and nights, life's
paradise
I think I'll treat myself to all the pretty places in my
head
Yes, I'm going to treat myself to all the pretty places
in my head
It's amazing how the mind
Can do what you want it to
It can take you to a time
Where you'll want to stay forever
Feeling overlasting pleasure
If your life's in a place
That you can hardly bare
Come along with me to mental ecxtasy
I think I'll treat myself to all the pretty places in my
head
Yes, I'm going to treat myself to all the pretty places
in my head
(repeat)
(Backgrounds) Wahtsoever things are lovely
Whatsoever things are pure
Whatsoever things are honest
Whatsoever things are true (repeat)

TOMORROW ROBINS WILL
SING
Chatting - Written by Edley Shine
Now every ting is lovely
So don't put yu trust inna false prophecy
Dis a de Edley Shine & Stevie
You might wonder
Stand firm to all those who feel concern
Ca when you can't see the light
You must see the Robins in flight
Life is just a matter of time or space
So all those who have to face sorrow
Shall only have to wait till tomorrow
Big tings a guan dis year
So mek we drop inna gear
Come cross missa Stevie Wonder
Watch it!
Now where do I start to make the point that I'll be
making
To most efficiently use your time that I'll be taking
With the clear understanding that every ticking second
is precious to us all
But if you let me bend your ear and listen up you will
hear
Not just what I say, but every word that I am saying
You wake in the morning from a dream with spirits
dope hype
Though you real life condition is far from being alright
Your love has wronged you, your money's gone, you've
lost your home and everything you own
But before you do something major extreme
I've got one simple thing for you to take along with you,
as you go on your lonely way
Tomorrow robins will sing, tomorrow robins will
sing
It really is no big thing, cause tomorrow robins will
sing
Tomorrow blue jays will fly, the weather forecasts
clear skies
So dry those tears from your eyes, cause tomorrow
blue jays will fly
You borrow a dime to call up a friend that you could
rely on
They put the phone down, you hear in the background
"tell him I'm not home"
Your face is broken, your throat is chokin, you hang up
the phone in disbelief
And to make matters worse
You can remember you were the first and only one to
come to him when lonely was his everyday
But if what you did came from your heart and not
expecting
Then you should not waste one heart beat on any
regretting
The saying's older than old yet true for today as when it
was made to be told
As you saw so shall you reap
And if you've treated life sweet
Your blessing's been ordained and already on its way
Tomorrow robins will sing, tomorrow robins will
sing
It really is no big thing, cause tomorrow robins will
sing
Tomorrow blue jays will fly, the weather forecasts
clear skies
So dry those tears from your eyes, cause tomorrow
blue jays will fly
Today is the tomorrow you were so worried about
Looking over your yesterday
The clouds are gone and the sun is out
And everything has worked out irie okay
Tomorrow robins will sing, tomorrow robins will
sing
It really is no big thing, cause tomorrow robins will
sing
Tomorrow blue jays will fly, the weather forecasts
clear skies
So dry those tears from your eyes, cause tomorrow
blue jays will fly
Tomorrow robins will sing, tomorrow robins will
sing
It really is no big thing, cause tomorrow robins will
sing
SENSUOUS WHISPER
I've seen you, I saw you, I see you
without little notice, if any at all
Of you knowing me watchin you
You walking, you talking, you smiling
You styling in everything your body wears
And that's not just a point of view
They're painting, they're ranting, they're raving
About Miss Lovely got it going on
From head down to her toes
And no one knows better than I know
Cause I've been listening to the spirit of
Your body, mind and soul
It's a sensuous whisper
That makes my body weak
It's that sensuous whisper
That's sweeter than the sweetest sweet
It's that sensuous whisper
That makes my psyche say
Ooh we, ooh wee, ooh we, ooh we, ooh we, ooh we,
ooh we, ooh we
Can feel you, can smell you, can taste you
Though my senses never had the pleasure of
That lovely wonderment
But I start to shaking, I shiver, to think that little sparkle
in your eye
Means you are giving me some kind of hint
I'm ready, I'm willing, I'm able
In fact those words are at the tip of my tongue
Eagerly waiting for me to say
Then you smile and whisper "how are you?"
But when I move my lips and try to speak the words
just go away
It's a sensuous whisper
That makes my body weak
It's that sensuous whisper
That's sweeter than the sweetest sweet
It's that sensuous whisper
That makes my psyche say
Ooh wee, ooh we, ooh we, ooh we, ooh we, ooh we,
ooh we
It's that sensuous whisper that's got me trippin out
It's that sensuous whisper
That I don't wanna do without
It's that sensuous whisper
That makes me want to shout
Ooh we, ooh wee, ooh we, ooh we, ooh we, ooh we,
ooh we, ooh we
I don't even care how long it takes
As long as I have you lying next to me
Cause to wait forever and a day
Is a small price to pay if it's you I'm getting
If it's you I'm getting, I'm not quitting
And that is how I'm living
I'm clinging, not dreaming, but scheming
With my nose against the grind and both my eyes
focused upon the prize
I think it, I trust it, I know it
Your love that I've longed for is gonna be mine
Good things do come in time
I'm right on the rythm you're givin
But this is more than giving up some casual mental
telepathy
The music, the candles, the champagne and all that's
needed
Is one thing to give it authenticity
It's a sensuous whisper
That makes my body weak
It's that sensuous whisper That's sweeter than the
sweetest sweet
It's that sensuous whisper
That makes my psyche say
Ooh wee, ooh wee, ooh we, ooh we, ooh we, ooh
we, ooh we, ooh we
It's that sensuous whisper
That's got me trippin out
It's that sensuous whisper
That I don't wanna do without
It's that sensuous whisper
That makes me want to shout
Ooh we, ooh wee, ooh we, ooh we, ooh we, ooh we,
ooh we, ooh we
It's a sensuous whisper
That makes my body rock
It's that sensuous whisper
That makes me beg baby don't ever stop
It's that sensuous whisper
That always get me hot, baby
Ooh wee, ooh wee, ooh we, ooh we, ooh we, ooh
we, ooh we, ooh we
It's that sensuous whisper
That makes me feel alright
It's that sensuous whisper
That keep me wanting you morning, noon and every
single night
It's that sensuous whisper
Don't want you out of my sight, baby
Ooh we, ooh wee, ooh we, ooh we, ooh we, ooh we,
ooh we, ooh we
It's that sensuous whisper (repeat)
FOR YOUR LOVE
All the gold in the world
Is nothing to possess
If all the things that it can bring
Can't add up to one ounce of your happiness
And for your love
I would do anything
Just to see you smile upon your face
For your love
I would go anywhere
Just you tell me and I'll be right there
A diamond that shines
Like a star in the sky
Is nothing to behold
For minuscule is any light
If it can't like you brighten up my soul
And for your love
I would do anything
Just to see you smile upon your face
For your love
I would go anywhere
Just you tell me and I'll be right there
I could have never fathomed this
Such joy , love and tenderness
That you give to me
For the love I feel inside
It's so wonderful I can't hide
And I glow, I glow
With just the thought of you
I do, I do, I do, I do, I do, I do
And for your love
I would do anything
Just to see you smile upon your face
For your love
I would go anywhere
Just you tell me and I'll be right there

COLD CHILL
Feelin young and full of fun
Hangin out with my crew
Hot to trot and about to pop
Tryin to find some girl to get into
There she was fine as can be
Hair braided down to her knees
She took me home, she turned me out
But before sunrise she said I must leave
It was a cold chill on a summer night
Never thought the girlie wouldn't treat me right
It was a cold chill on a summer day
Never thought the girl would dog me out that way
It was a cold chill on a summer morn
Never cried like a baby since the day I was born
It was a cold chill on a summer eve
Never had no chopper bring me to my knees
I was feeling so trusting
Gave it all right down to the bone
But she did me wrong
On a summer night
Far from meek, and feelin chic
Refusing to concede defeat
There I was same crew, same time
Same club we kicked it at the previous week
I asked her how could she have the nerve
To treat me with such disgrace
She blinked her eyes, smiled, apologized
Threw her drink right in my face
It was a cold chill on a summer night
Never thought the girlie wouldn't treat me right
It was a cold chill on a summer day
Never thought the girl would dog me out that way
It was a cold chill on a summer morn
Never cried like a baby since the day I was born
It was a cold chill on a summer eve
Never had no chopper bring me to my knees
Like a winter Chicago night
A cold chill
Twenty ice cubes down your back for spite
Cold chill
Stranded in sub-zero degrees
A cold chill
Layed out on the arctic sea
Cold chill
When your fingers get frost bite
A cold chill
Buried beneath ten feet of ice
Cold chill
Baby, that ain't so nice
A cold chill
SORRY
Into each life there comes a time
When you must pay your lovers' dues
Breakin' out in a cold sweat
Cause you've been rightfully accused
I'm not such a strong man
That love can't make me weak
You're walkin' out the door
And it's hurting me so deep, so deep
And I'm sorry
Sorry that I made you cry
Sorry, sorry that I told you lies
I'm sorry, sorry the way we fuss and fight
I'm sorry, sorry cause now you're
saying goodbye to me
Every young boy will grow up
To then become a man
Then the difference from wrong and right
He clearly understands
I'm not such a big man
That I can't break down in tears
Cause my whole body went into shock
When you told me you were out of here! Out of here!
I was feeling so trusting
Gave it all right down to the bone
But she did me wrong
On a summer night, on a summer night
On a summer night, on a summer night
A cold chill, a cold chill, a cold chill, cold chill
And I'm sorry
Sorry that I made you cry
Sorry, sorry that I told you lies
I'm sorry, sorry the way we fuss and fight
I'm sorry, sorry cause now you're saying
goodbye to me, to me
Weekends came and weekends passed
But not the yearning in my heart
And there she was to light the spark
Like she did right from the very start
I'm sorry baby, that I ever did it to you
I'm sorry baby, that I ever made you cry
I'm sorry baby, that I ever did it to you
I'm sorry baby, that I ever told you lies
I'm sorry baby, that I ever did it to you
I'm sorry baby, sorry the way we fuss and fight
I'm sorry baby, that I ever did it to you
I'm sorry baby, so sorry
I took no time, drove to her house
Got deep into a passion high
I heard a knock, the turn of a key
And the voice of another guy
It was a cold chill on a summer night
Never thought the girlie wouldn't treat me right
It was a cold chill on a summer day
Never thought the girl would dog me out that way
It was a cold chill on a summer morn
Never cried like a baby since the day I was born
It was a cold chill on a summer eve
Never had no chopper bring me to my knees
I was feeling so trusting
Gave it all right down to the bone
But she did me wrong
On a summer night, on a summer night
On a summer night, on a summer night
It was a cold chill
Like standing in the deep freeze
A cold chill
Like when snow's above your knees
Cold chill
Like sitting at the north pole
A cold chill
Wearing not one stitch of clothes
Cold chill
CONVERSATION PEACE
Staring right at 2000 AD
As if mankind's atrocities to man has no history
But just a glance at life in 2000 BC
We find traces of man's inhumanity to man
There's no mystery
All for one, one for all
There's no way we'll reach our greatest heights
Unless we heed the call
Me for you, you for me
There's no chance of world salvation
Less the conversation's peace
We can't pause, watch and say "no" this can't be
When there's a plan by any means to have
Cleansing of one's ethnicity
And we shouldn't act as if we don't hear nor see
Like the holocaust of six million Jews and
A hundred and fifty million blacks during slavery
All for one, one for all
There's no way we'll reach our greatest heights
Unless we heed the call
Me for you, you for me
There's no chance of world salvation
Less the conversation's peace
When publicly or privately convened
May love, positivity and life's preservation
be the basic theme
And shouuld you put your trust in some
prophet in life
Give him trust but your faith must stay
with the one
Who gave the ultimate sacrifice for...
All for one, one for all
There's no way we'll reach our greatest heights
Unless we heed the call
Me for you, you for me
Ther's no chance of world salvation
Less the conversation is peace (repeat)
If you added up all the good times
And compared them with the bad
You'd realize that our love
Was the best you ever had
I'm not such a proud man
That I won't cop a plea
See me baby girl, I'm on my knees
Beggin please, baby please, baby please, oh yeah
I'm sorry, sorry that I made you cry
Sorry, sorry that I told you lies
I'm sorry, I'm sorry the way we fuss and fight
I'm sorry, sorry cause now you're
saying goodbye to me, me baby, me baby, me baby
I'm sorry baby, that I ever did it to you
I'm sorry baby, that I ever told you lies
I'm sorry baby, that I ever did it to you
I'm sorry baby, that I ever made you cry
I'm sorry baby, that I ever did it to you
I'm sorry baby, sorry the way we fuss and fight
I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, sorry, sorry,
sorry, sorry (repeat)

DANCING TO THE RYTHM
MS. & MR. LITTLE ONES
Lonely, my life used to be lonely
Lonely as the single lonely number one
Lonely like a lonely sun
With not even one iota to shine upon
What is that that you're looking through
a pornographic magazine?
When I bet you don't even know how to
spell the word
And you say you don't leave home unless
you're strapped
With your uzi sub machine
When you've just barely come into this world
Well, if a child's ways and actions
Reflect what they hear and see
Guess the only ones to blame are you and me
Crying, deep inside I was crying
Like the muddy Mississippi, my tears flowed
Carrying with it my lonely soul
With not even a clue of who,
where or what I would become
Oh, how I longed to be possessed by one somebody
To hold me, control me, show me what I should
do with my broken life
But oh, was I lifted when I let your light
inside my body
Then I shed my sorrows for joy, love and
you in my, my, my, my li-li-life
NATURAL WONDER
STAY GOLD
Seize upon that moment long ago
One breath away and there you will be
So young and carefree
Again you will see
That place in time...so gold
Steal away into that way back when
You thought that all would last forever
But like the weather
Nothing can ever...and be in time
Stay gold
But can it be
When we can see
So vividly
A memory
And yes you say
So must the day
Too, fade away
And leave a ray of sun
So gold
Life is but a twinkling of an eye
Yet filled with sorrow and compassion
though not imagined
All things that happen
Will age too old
Though gold
I'm dancing to the rythm of your love
Singing sweet melodies of your sweet, sweet love
Forever greateful for your love
Money, oh how did I have money
Enough to last me from the start til the end of time
With some more to leave behind
And yet I was a cent-less pauper in distress
I can, feel the very presence of your love here
Though I've never seen the pleasure of your smile
No, I've never touched your hand
And yet you've given me eternal happiness
Oh, how I longed to be possessed by one somebody
To hold me, control me, show me what I should
do with my broken life
But oh, was I lifted when I let your light
inside my body
Then I shed my sorrows for joy, love and you in my,
my, my, my li-li-life
I'm dancing to the rythm of your love
Singing sweet melodies of your sweet, sweet love
Forever greateful for your sweet, sweet love
(Repeat)
Oh, how I longed to be possessed by one somebody
To hold me, control me, show me what I should do
with my broken life
But oh, was I lifted when I let God's light
inside my body
Then I shed my sorrows for joy, love and you
in my, my, my, my li-li-life
I'm dancing to the rythm of your love
Singing sweet melodies of your sweet, sweet love
Giving all praises of your sweet, sweet love
Forever greateful for your sweet, sweet love
(Repeat)
Ms. & Mr. Little Ones
Look what's happened to our world
Ms. & Mr. Little Ones
We're so sorry
The only chance for a better one
Is up to you and he
Please! Forgive us for what we've done
Ms. & Mr. Little Ones
What kind of name is that you're calling her
I've heard that word before
But I don't think any parent would give their
daughter a name so low
And about this extra paraphernalia
You say you're carrying to get high
That won't take you anywhere you want to go
Well, you don't have to listen
Cause it's here for you to see
So many burnt out lives trapped in their misery
Ms. & Mr. Little Ones
Look what's happened to our world
Ms. & Mr. Little Ones
We're so sorry
The only chance for a better one
Is up to you and he
Please! Forgive us for what we've done
Ms. & Mr. Little Ones
Oh, I could rattle on about the good old days
And how life used to be
And even inwardly relive them vividly
But the best advice I can give to you
Is that we only go around one time
Treat each day like this is it
And give it the best you can
Ms. & Mr. Little Ones
Look what's happened to our world
Ms. & Mr. Little Ones
We're so sorry
The only chance for a better one
Is up to you and he
Please! Forgive us for what we've done
Ms. & Mr. Little Ones
Ms. & Mr. Little Ones
Look what's happened to our world
Ms. & Mr. Little Ones
We're so sorry
There's so much we should and should
have never done
That's why we're beggin' on our knees
Please! Forgive us for what we've done
Ms. & Mr. Little Ones

FADEMY LOVE
My love is warmer than a smile
My love gives to every needing child
If anyone should ask you who's my true love
Tell them my love true
Is ever letting all their love come through
My love sees love with not a face
And lives to love through time and space
If all of everything about my love
Fits to the tune of you
Then you can say that you are my love too
SONG REVIEW
KISS LONELY GOOD-BYE
Give me a chance to catch my breath
Cause I'm in a state of awe
Guess miracles do never cease
For we're back together now
Pardon me please if I pinch myself
So to know this is not a dream
As I reminisce the love e shared
And the pain there was between
Look at the clouds in the sky
They seem so happy now
Look at the sun, feel its rays
With such a smiling face
Maybe we can't but maybe we can
With the love that we're feeling inside
Share it with all the world and see each heart
Kiss lonely good-bye
If given a chance to live again
I'd change not a single thing
Cause that little chance could sadly mean
That you to me faith wouldn't bring
Let my love shine through out the world
To every mountain top and steeple
Let it be felt by every soul
'Til love's all over
Let it reach out to every heart
To every disenfranchised people
'Til it is present and no more
Is pain all over
Our love sees love's the key to peace
We'll pray 'til all world wars have ceased
Should you or anyone you know enough
To say they feel as we
Then let our universal song be free
Let our love shine through out the world
To every mountain top and steeple
Let it be felt by every soul
'Til love's all over
Say words of love to all we see
To rich and poor for love is equal
Let us lift up humanity
Spread love all over
Let all its forces join as one
So to rebuke all signs of evil
Through every valley, land and sea
Our love's all people
Look at the clouds in the sky
They seem so happy now
Look at the sun, feel its rays
With such a smiling face
Maybe we can't but maybe we can
With the love that we're feeling inside
Share it with all the world and see each heart
Kiss lonely good-bye
Look at the clouds in the sky
They seem so happy now
Look at the sun, feel its rays
With such a smiling face
Maybe we can't but maybe we can
With the love that we're feeling inside
Share it with all the world and see each heart
Share it with all the world and see each heart
Share it with all the world and see each heart kiss
lonely good-bye
Share it with all the world and see each heart kiss
lonely good-bye

You're Much Too Good For Me To Pass
I'm For The Taking, You Just Ask

What's That You're Saying?
Girl I Like The Way You Talk To Me
What's That You're Saying?
Even If It's Wrong Girl I Do Agree
Girl You Make Me Feel So Small
Though I Might Stand Six Feet Tall
What You've Got Cuts Me Right Down To Size
I'll Be The Last, You'll Be The First
I'll Do My Best To Quench Your Thirst
I'm The Lucky One Who Keeps The Prize
Feeble is the mind that says they don't care
Selfish is the heart that won't give their share
Poor them, Poor we
Wasted is the mind that won't take a stand
Lieth the tongue that says they can't when they can
Poor him, Poor she
For as long as we live,
And are blessed with air on earth to breathe
We all should live to keep our love alive
More than blinds the soul that sees but won't show
Lost the leader with the way but won't go
For you, For me
Worthless is the one with will but won't try
Grounded are we all if we don't think high
Of you, You of me
For as long as we live,
And are blessed with air on earth to breathe
We all should live to keep our love alive
Let's keep our love alive
For as long as I live,
And am blessed with air on earth to breathe
I know I'll live to keep our love alive.
Girl I Like What You're Doing

HOW COME, HOW LONG
Stevie Wonder and Babyface
There was a girl I used to know
She was oh so beautiful
But she's not here anymore
She had a college degree
Smart as anyone could be
She had so much to live for
But she fell in love
With the wrong kinda man
He abused her love and treated her so bad
There was not enough education in her world
That could save the life of this little girl
How come, how long
It's not right, it's so wrong
Do we let it just go on
Turn our backs and carry on
Wake up, for it's too late
Right now, we can't wait
She won't have a second try
Open up your hearts
As well as your eyes
She tried to give a cry for help
She even blamed things on herself
But no one came to her aid
Nothing was wrong as far as we could tell
That's what we'd like to tell ourselves
But no, it wasn't that way
So she fell in love
With the wrong kinda man
And she paid with her life
For loving that man
So we cannot ignore,
We must look for the signs
And maybe next time we might save
somebody's life
How come, how long
It's not right, it's so wrong
Do we let it just go on
Turn our backs and carry on
Wake up, for it's too late
Right now, we can't wait
She won't have a second try
Open up your hearts
As well as your eyes
I on occasion met that guy
It's been a feeling deep inside
Some ... wasn't right
The way he proves himself a man
By beating his woman with his hands
Oh I wish that she'd seen the light
How can someone like that call himself a man
He's not a man
Soon reality ...
And we cannot ignore
Whenever we see the signs
'Cause any kind of abuse
God knows, it's a crime
How come, how long
It's not right, it's so wrong
Do we let it just go on
Turn our backs and carry on
Wake up, for it's too late
Right now, we can't wait
She won't have a second try
Open up your hearts
As well as your eyes
TRUE TO YOUR HEART
Baby, I knew at once that
you were meant for me
Deep in my soul I know
that I'm your destiny
Though you're unsure
Why fight the tide
Don't think so much
Let your heart decide
Baby, I see your future
and it's tied to mine
I look in your eyes and see
you searching for a sign
But you'll never fall
Till you let go
Don't be so scared
Of what you don't know
True to you heart
You must be true
to your heart
That's when the
heavens will part
And baby, shower you
with my love
Open your eyes
Your heart can tell
you no lies
And when you're true
to your heart
I know it's gonna lead
you straight to me
(Got to be true
To your heart)
Someone you know is on
your side, can set you free
I can do that for you if
you believe in me
Why second-guess
What feels so right
Just trust your heart
And you'll see the light
True to you heart
You must be true
to your heart
That's when the
heavens will part
And baby, shower you
with my love
Open your eyes
Your heart can tell you no lies
And when you're true
to your heart
I know it's gonna lead
you straight to me
True to you heart
You must be true
to your heart
That's when the
heavens will part
And baby, shower you
with my love
Open your eyes
Your heart will tell you no lies
And when it's true
to your heart
I know it's gonna lead
you straight to me
(Got to be true
To your heart)
When things are getting' crazy
And you don't know
where to start
Keep on believin', baby
Just be true to your heart
When all the world
around you
It seems to fall apart
Keep on believin', baby
Just be true to your heart
True to you heart
You must be true
to your heart
That's when the
heavens will part
And baby, shower you
with my love
Open your eyes
Your heart can tell
you no lies
And when you're true
to your heart
I know it's gonna lead
you straight to me
(Ya know it's true)
Your heart knows
what's good for you
(Good for you)
Let your heart show
you the way
(Ya know it's true)
It'll see you through
(Got to be true
To your heart)
Girl, my heart is driving
me to where you are
Well, you can take both hands off
the wheel and still get far
Be swept away
Enjoy the ride
You won't get lost
With your heart to guide you
