Lagerfeuerlieder

  1. 500 Meilen

Klare Sicht der Tag beginnt Wir sind auf Kurs mit gutem Wind
Du bist fern, Bist soweit weg und doch bei mir.
Nichts als Meer vor dem Bug, Sorg Dich nicht es geht mir gut;
Nur manchmal sehn ich mich zurück zurück zu Dir.
 
Du bist Da, hältst mich warm, Du bist hier in meinem Arm,
und Du stärkst mich, denn der Abschied fiel so schwer.
Ich bin ein, ich bin zwei, ich bin drei und ich bin vier,
ich bin fünfhundert Meilen auf dem Meer.
 
Bucht für Bucht, Ort für Ort, Eine Nacht und wieder fort.
Jeden Abend wenn wir ankern such ich dich!
Wir sind frei hier auf See, Nur das Herz tut manchmal weh,
Denn ich seh in jeder Wolke dein Gesicht.
 
Du bist Da, hältst mich warm, Du bist hier in meinem Arm,
und Du stärkst mich, denn der Abschied fiel so schwer.
Ich bin ein, ich bin zwei, ich bin drei und ich bin vier,
ich bin fünfhundert Meilen auf dem Meer.
 
Du bist Da, hältst mich warm, Du bist hier in meinem Arm
und Du stärkst mich, denn der Abschied fiel so schwer.
Wir sind frei hier auf See, Nur das Herz tut manchmal weh.
Ich bin fünfhundert Meilen fort von Dir.
Ich bin fünfhundert Meilen fort von Dir.
Ich bin fünfhundert Meilen fort von Dir.

  2. A Boy named Sue

Well My daddy left home when I was three -- And he didn't leave much to Ma and me
Just this old guitar and an empty bottle of booze. -- Now, I don't blame him cause he run and hid
But the meanest thing that he ever did -- Was before he left, he went and named me 'Sue'.
 
Well, he must have thought that that was quite a joke -- And it got a lot of laughs from a' lots of folks, 
It seems I had to fight my whole life through. -- Some gal' would giggle and I'd get red 
And some guy'd laugh and I'd bust his head, -- I tell you, life ain't easy for a boy named 'Sue'. 
 
Well, I grew up quick and I grew up mean, -- My fist got hard and my wits got keen, 
I'd roam from town to town to hide my shame. -- But I made me a vow to the moon and stars 
That I'd search the honky-tonks and bars -- And kill that man that give me that awful name. 
 
Well, it was Gatlinburg in mid-July -- And I just hit town and my throat was dry, 
I thought I'd stop and have myself a brew. -- At an old saloon on a street of mud, 
There at a table, dealing stud, -- Sat the dirty, mangy dog that named me 'Sue'. 
 
Well, I knew that snake was my own sweet dad -- From a worn-out picture that my mother'd had, 
And I knew that scar on his cheek and his evil eye. -- He was big and bent and gray and old, 
And I looked at him and my blood ran cold -- And I said: "My name is 'Sue'! how do you do? 
Now you gonna die!" - Yeah, that's what I told him! 
 
Well, I hit him hard right between the eyes -- And he went down, but, to my surprise, 
He come up with a knife and cut off a piece of my ear. -- But I busted a chair right across his teeth 
And we crashed through the wall and into the street -- Kicking and a' gouging in the mud and the blood and the beer. 
 
I tell you, I've fought tougher men -- But I really can't remember when, 
He kicked like a mule and he bit like a crocodile. -- I heard him laugh and then I heard him cuss, 
He went for his gun and I pulled mine first, -- He stood there lookin' at me and I saw him smile. 
 
He said: "Son, this world is rough -- And if a man's gonna make it, he's gotta be tough 
And I know I wouldn't be there to help you along. -- So I give you that name and I said good-bye 
I knew you'd have to get tough or die -- And it's that name that helped to make you strong." 
 
He said: "Now you just fought one hell of a fight -- And I know you hate me, and you got the right 
To kill me now, and I wouldn't blame you if you do. -- But you ought to thank me, before I die, 
For the gravel in ya' guts and the spit in ya' eye -- Cause I'm the son-of-a-bitch that named you 'Sue'." 
 
 
I got all choked up and I threw down my gun -- And I called him my pa, and he called me his son, 
And I come away with a different point of view. -- And I think about him, now and then, 
Every time I try and every time I win, -- And if I ever have a son, I think I'm gonna name him 
Bill or George! Any damn' thing but Sue! -- I still hate that name! 

  3. A Day in the Life

(intro)
I read the news today, oh boy, about a lucky man who made the grade.
And thought the news were rather sad, well I just had to laugh:
I saw the photograph.
 
He blew his mind out in a car, he didn't notice that the lights had changed.
A crowd of people stood and stared, they'd seen his face before:
Nobody was really sure if he was from the House of Lords.
 
I saw a film today, oh boy, the england army had just won the war.
A crowd of people turned away, but I just had to look
Having read the book
I'd love to turn you on
 
Woke up, fell out of bed, dragged a combed across my head
Found my way downstairs and dranked a cup, and looking up I noticed I was late!
Grabbed my coat, found my hat, made the bus in seconds flat
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke, and somebody spoke and I went into a dream
 
AaaahAhahahahAhaaaaAhaha - AaaahAhahahahAhaaaaAhaha
 
I read the news today, oh boy, four thousand holes in Blackburn Lancashire
And though the holes were rather small, they had to count them all
Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall
I'd love to turn you on

  4. A Hard Day's Night

It's been A Hard Day's Night and I've been working like a dog.
It's been A Hard Day's Night I should be sleeping like a log.
But when I get home to you I find the things that you do will make me feel al - right!
 
You know I work all day to get you money to buy you things.
And It's worth it just to hear you say you're gonna give me ev'rything.
So why on earth should I moan, 'cause when I get you alone you know it feels al - right.
 
When I home ev'rything seems to be right
When I'm home feeling you holding me tight, tight, yeah!
It's been A Hard Day's Night and I've been working like a dog.
It's been A Hard Day's Night I should be sleeping like a log.
But when I get home to you I find the things that you do will make me feel Oh - Kay!
 
So why on earth should I moan 'Cause when I get you alone you know it feels al- right!
When I home ev'rything seems to be right
When I'm home feeling you holding me tight, tight, yeah!
It's been A Hard Day's Night and I've been working like a dog.
It's been A Hard Day's Night I should be sleeping like a log.
But when I get home to you I find the things that you do will make me feel al - right!
You know I feel al - right, You know I feel al - right

  5. A Well Respected Man

'Cause he gets up in the morning, and he goes to work at nine.
And he comes back home at five thirty, gets the same train every time
'Cause his world is built on punctuali- ty it never fails
'Cause he's oh so good, and he's oh so fine,
And he's oh so healthy in his body and his mind
He's a well respected man about town Doing the best things so conservatively.
 
And his mother goes to meetings while his father pulls the maid. 
And she stirs the tea with councilors while discussing foreign trade. 
And she passes looks as well as Bill's at every suave young man. 
Cos he's oh so good, and he's oh so fine, 
And he's oh so healthy in his body and his mind. 
He's a well respected man about town Doing the best things so conservatively- 
 
And he likes his own backyard, and he likes his fags the best, 
'Cause he's better than the rest, and his arm sweat smells the best, 
And he hopes to grab his father's loot when big foot passes on. 
Cos he's oh so good, and he's oh so fine, 
And he's oh so healthy in his body and his mind. 
He's a well respected man about town Doing the best things so conservatively- 
 
And he plays at stocks and shares, and he goes to the regatta. 
He adores the girl next door 'cause he's dying to get at her, 
But his mother knows the best about the matrimonial stakes. 
Cos he's oh so good, and he's oh so fine, 
And he's oh so healthy in his body and his mind. 
He's a well respected man about town Doing the best things so conservatively- 

  6. A Whiter Shade of Pale

|/ / / / |/ / / / |/ / / / |/ / / / |/ / / / |/ / / / |/ / / / |/ / / / |
We skipped the light, fandango, And turned cartwheels 'cross the floor.
I was feeling kind of seasick, And the crowd called out for more.
The room was humming harder, As the ceiling flew away;
When we called out for another drink The waiter brought a tray:
And so it was that later As the miller told his tale,
That her face, at first just ghostly, Turned a whiter shade of pale.
She said "There is no reason, And the truth is plain to see,"
But I wandered through my playing cards, And would not let her be!
One of sixteen vestal virgins, Who were leaving for the coast
And although my eyes were o - pen They might just as well have been closed
And so it was that later As the miller told his tale,
That her face, at first just ghostly, Turned a whiter shade of pale.
And so it was...

  7. Aber bitte mit Sahne

Sie treffen sich täglich um viertel nach drei, Wo-ho-ho, (Oh-Yeah,)
Am Stammtisch im Eck in der Konditorei, Wo-ho-ho, (Oh-Yeah,)
Und blasen zum Sturm auf das Kuchenbuffet,
auf Früchteeis: Ananas, Kirsch und Banane:
Aber bitte mit Sahne. (Aber bitte mit Sahne.)
 
Sie schwatzen und schmatzen, dann holen sie sich, Wo-ho-ho (,Oh Yeah), 
Noch Buttercremetorte und Bienenstich, Wo-ho-ho (,Oh Yeah). 
Sie pusten und prusten, fast geht nichts mehr rein; 
Nur ein Mohrenkopf höchstens, denn Ordnung muss sein - 
Bei Mathilde, Ottilie, Marie und Liliane: 
Aber bitte mit Sahne. (Aber bitte mit Sahne.) 
 
Und das Ende vom Lied hat wohl jeder geahnt, Wo-ho-ho (,Oh Yeah), 
Der Tod reihum sie dort abgesahnt, Wo-ho-ho (,Oh Yeah). 
Die Hinterbliebenen fanden vor Schmerz keine Worte, 
mit Sacher- und Linzer- und Marzipantorte. 
Hielt als letzte Liliane getreu noch zur Fahne. 
Aber bitte mit Sahne. (Aber bitte mit Sahne.) 
 
Doch auch mit Liliane war es schließlich vorbei, Wo-ho-ho (,Oh Yeah). 
Sie kippte vom Stuhl in der Konditorei, Wo-ho-ho (,Oh Yeah). 
Auf dem Sarg gab's statt Kränzen verzuckerte Torten 
Und der Pfarrer begrub sie mit rührenden Worten: 
Dass der Herrgott den Weg in den Himmel ihr bahne, 
Aber bitte mit Sahne. (Aber bitte mit Sahne.) 

  8. Across the Universe

Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup
They slither while they pass they slip away across the universe
Pools of sorrow waves of joy are drifting through my open mind
Posessing and caressing me
Jai Guru Deva - Om - Nothing's gonna change my world,
Nothing's gonna change my world. Nothing's gonna change my world,
Nothing's gonna change my world.
 
Images of broken light which dance before me like a million
eyes they call me on and on across the universe
Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letterbox
They tumble blindly as they make their way across the universe
Jai Guru Deva - Om - |: Nothing's gonna change my world :| (4x) 
 
Sounds of laughter shades of light are ringing through my open ears
Exciting and inviting me
Limitless undying love which shines around me like a million
suns: It calls me on and on across the universe
Jai Guru Deva - Om - |: Nothing's gonna change my world :| (4x) 
Jai Guru Deva - Jai Guru Deva - Jai Guru Deva...

  9. Ain't No Sunshine

There ain't no sunshine when she's gone.
It's not warm when she's away.
There ain't no sunshine when she's gone,
And she's always gone too long,
Anytime she goes away.
 
Wonder this time where she's gone. 
Wonder if she's gone to stay? 
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone, 
And this house just ain't no home, 
Anytime she goes away. 
 
And I know I know I know I know
I know I know I know I know... 
Hey, I ought to leave the young thing alone,
There ain't sunshine when she's gone.
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone, 
Only darkness every day. 
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone, 
And this house just ain't no home, 
Anytime she goes away, Anytime she goes away, Anytime she goes away.

 12. All Along The Watchtower

///// / //// / /
"There must be some kind of way out of here," / / / / /
Said the joker to the thief: / / / / /
"There's too much confusion, 
I can't get no relief. 
Businessmen, they drink my wine; 
Plowmen dig my earth. 
None of them along the line - 
Know what any of it is worth!” 
All along the watchtower, 
Princes kept the view. 
While all the women came and went, 
Barefoot servants, too! 
“No reason to get excited,” 
The thief, he kindly spoke: 
“There are many here among us 
Who feel that life is but a joke. 
But you and I, we’ve been through that, 
And this is not our fate! 
So let us not talk falsely now, 
the hour is getting late!” 
 
All along the watchtower, 
Princes kept the view. 
While all the women came and went, 
Barefoot servants, too! 
 
Outside in the distance 
A wildcat did growl. 
Two riders were approaching, 
And the wind began to howl. 
All along the watchtower 
Princess kept the view 
While all the women came and went 
Barefoot servants too 
 
All along the watchtower 
All along the watchtower 
All along the watchtower

 13. All Right Now!

There she stood in the street - Smiling from her head to her feet,
I said "A-Hey, what is this?" Now baby, maybe she's in need of a kiss.
 
I said "A-Hey, what's your name, baby, maybe we can see things the same?
Now don't you wait or hesitate, Let's move before they raise the parking rate."
All right now, baby, it's all right now! All right now, baby, it's all right now!
 
I took her home to my place - Watching ev'ry move on her face. 
She said "Look, what's your game baby - are you tryin' to put me in shame?" 
 
I said "Slow, don't go so fast, don't you think that love can last?" 
She said "Love, Lord above, now you're gonna trick me in love." 
All right now, baby, it's all right now! All right now, baby, it's all right now! 
All right now, baby, it's all right now! All right now, baby, it's all right now! 
All right now, baby, it's all right now! All right now, baby, it's all right now!

 14. All Summer Long

It was 1989, my thoughts were short my hair was long
Caught somewhere between a boy and man
She was 17 and she was far from in between
It was summertime in Northern Michigan
 
Splashin' thru the sandbar, talkin' by the campfire 
It's the simple things in life like when and where 
We didn't have no internet, but man I never will forget 
The way the moonlight shined upon her hair 
And we were tryin' different things and we were smokin' funny things
Makin' love out by the lake to our favorite songs
Sippin' whisky out the bottle not thinkin' 'bout tomorrow
Singin' sweet home Alabama all summer long
Singin' sweet home Alabama all summer long
 
Catchin' walleye from the dock watchin' waves roll off the rocks 
She'll forever hold a spot inside my soul 
We'd blister in the sun we couldn't wait for night to come 
To hit that sandy place of rock 'n roll 
And we were tryin' different things and we were smokin' funny things 
Makin' love out by the lake to our favorite songs
Sippin' whisky out the bottle not thinkin' 'bout tomorrow 
Singin' sweet home Alabama all summer long 
Singin' sweet home Alabama all summer long 
Now nothin' seems as strange as when the leaves began to change 
Oh how we thought those days would never end 
Sometimes I hear that song and I'll start to sing along 
And think man I'd like to see that girl again 
And we were tryin' different things and we were smokin' funny things 
Makin' love out by the lake to our favorite songs
Sippin' whisky out the bottle not thinkin' 'bout tomorrow 
Singin' sweet home Alabama all summer long 
Singin' sweet home Alabama all summer long 

 15. All Together Now

One, two, three, four, can I have a little more?
Five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, I love you.
A, B, C, D, can I bring a friend to tea?
E, F, G, H, I, J, K, I love you.
 
Bom, bom, bom, bom-pa-bom, sail the ship, bom-pa-bom, chop the tree.
Bom-pa-bom, skip the rope, bom-pa-bom, look at me.
 
All together now, all together now,
all together now, all together now
 
Black, white, green, red, Can I take my friend to bed?
Pink, brown, yellow, orange, and blue - I love you.
 
Bom, bom, bom, bom-pa-bom, sail the ship, bom-pa-bom, chop the tree.
Bom-pa-bom, skip the rope, bom-pa-bom, look at me.
 
All together now, all together now, all together now, all together now.
All together now, all together now, all together now, all together now!

 16. Aloha Heja He

Ich hab die ganze Welt gesehn von Singapur bis Abadin
Wenn du mich fragst wo es am schönsten war, dann sag ich Sansibar.
War 'ne harte Überfahrt, zehn Wochen nur das Deck geschrubbt.
Hab die Welt verflucht, in den Wind gespuckt und salziges Wasser geschluckt.
 
Als wir den Anker warfen war es himmlische Ruh'
und die Sonne stand senkrecht am Himmel.
Als ich über die Reling sah glaubte ich zu träumen,
da waren tausend Boote und die hielten auf uns zu.
In den Booten saßen Männer und Frau'n ihre Leiber glänzten in der Sonne.
Und sie sangen ein Lied, daß kam mir seltsam bekannt vor aber so hab ich's noch nie gehört
Uh so hab ich's noch nie gehört.
Aloha Heja He Aloha Heja He Aloha Heja He
Aloha Heja He Aloha Heja He Aloha Heja He
 
Sie machten ihre Boote längsseits fest 
und mit den Wind wehte Gelächter herüber 
Sie nahmen ihre Blumenkränze ab und warfen sie uns herüber. 
Hej und schon war die Party im Gange. 
Aloha Heja He Aloha Heja He Aloha Heja He 
Aloha Heja He Aloha Heja He Aloha Heja He 
 
Ich hab das Paradies gesehn es war um 1910. 
Der Steuermann hatte Matrosen am Mast 
und den Zahlmeister ham die Gonokoken vernascht. 
Aber sonst war'n wir bei bester Gesundheit 
Aloha Heja He Aloha Heja He Aloha Heja He 
Aloha Heja He Aloha Heja He Aloha Heja He 
Aloha Heja He Aloha Heja He Aloha Heja He 
Aloha Heja He Aloha Heja He Aloha Heja He... 

 17. Always Look on the Bright Side of Life

Some things in life are bad - they can really make you mad.
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you're chewing on large gristle - don't grumble - give a whistle
And whistles help things turn out for the best:
And always look at the bright side of life (whistle)
Always look on the light side of life (whistle)
 
If life seems jolly rotten - there's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing!
When you're feeling in the dumps - don't be silly chums
Just purse your lips and whistle that's the thing:
And always look at the bright side of life (whistle)
Come on, Always look on the bright side of life (whistle)
 
For life is quite absurd - and death's the final word
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin - give the audience a grin
Enjoy it's your last chance anyhow:
So always look on the bright side of death (whistle)
Just before you draw your terminal breath. (whistle)
 
Life's a piece of shit - when you look at it,
Life's a laugh and death's a joke - it's true!
You see it's all a show - keep 'em laughing as you go;
Just remember that the last laugh is on you:
And always look at the bright side of life (whistle)
Always look on the right side of life (whistle)
Always look on the right side of life (whistle)...

 18. Always On My Mind

Maybe I didn't love you - Quite as often as I could have.
And maybe I didn't treat you - Quite as good as I should have
If I made you feel second best - Girl I'm sorry I was blind
You were always on my mi-i-ind - You were always on my mind
 
Maybe I didn't hold you - All those lonely, lonely times. 
I guess I never told you - I'm so happy that you're mine. 
Little things I should have said and done - I just never took the time. 
You were always on my mind - You were always on my mind. 
 
Te-ell me, Tell me that your sweet love hasn't died
Gi-ive me, give me one more chance to keep you satisfied
I'll keep you satisfied
Little things I should have said and done - I just never took the time. 
You were always on my mind - You were always on my mind. 
 
You were always on my mind - You were always on my mind. 

 19. Am Sonntag will mein Süßer mit mir segeln geh'n

Träumend an der Schreib-ma-schin' saß die kleine Jo-se-phin.
Die Sehnsucht des Herzens die führte die Hand.
Der Chef kam und las es und staunte, da stand:
Am Sonntag will mein Süßer mit mir segeln geh'n,
sofern die Winde weh'n, das wär' doch wunderschön!
Am Sonntag will mein Süßer mal ein Seemann sein
mit mir im Sonnenschein - so ganz al-lein!
 
Und dann beim Abendrot mach' ich das Abendbrot
Auf unserm Segelboot Für meinen Süßen und für mich!
Am Sonntag will mein Süßer mit mir segeln geh'n
Sofern die Winde weh'n Das wär' doch schön!
 
"Minna" sprach Frau Schulrat Kraus: "Sonntag bleiben Sie zu Haus!"
Da heulte die Minna und sagte zu ihr:
"Mich halten am Sonntag zehn Pferde nicht hier!"
Am Sonntag will mein Süßer mit mir segeln geh'n, 
sofern die Winde weh'n, das wär' doch wunderschön! 
Am Sonntag will mein Süßer mal ein Seemann sein 
mit mir im Sonnenschein - so ganz allein! 
 
Und dann beim Abendrot mach' ich das Abendbrot 
Auf unserm Segelboot Für meinen Süßen und für mich! 
Am Sonntag will mein Süßer mit mir segeln geh'n 
Sofern die Winde weh'n Das wär' doch schön! 
 
Allen Mädchen geht es so, in der Küche, im Bü-ro.
Am Sonntag da hab'n sie was Besseres vor
Da flüstert's die eine der anderen in's Ohr:
Am Sonntag will mein Süßer mit mir segeln geh'n, 
sofern die Winde weh'n, das wär' doch wunderschön! 
Am Sonntag will mein Süßer mal ein Seemann sein 
mit mir im Sonnenschein - so ganz allein! 
 
Und dann beim Abendrot mach' ich das Abendbrot 
Auf unserm Segelboot Für meinen Süßen und für mich! 
Am Sonntag will mein Süßer mit mir segeln geh'n 
Sofern die Winde weh'n Das wär' doch schön! 

 20. Amazing Grace

Amazing grace, how sweet the sounds,that saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now I’m found, was blind but now I see.
 
‘T was grace that taught my heart to fear, and grace my fears relieved. 
How precious did that grace appear, the hour I first believed. 
 
Thro’s many dangers, toils and snares, I have already come, 
‘Tis grace hath bro’t me safe thus far, and grace will lead me home. 
 
How sweet the name of Jesus sounds, in a believers ear. 
It sooths his sorrows, heals the wounds, and drives away his fear. 
 
Must Jesus bear the cross alone and all the world go free? 
No, there’s a cross for ev’ry one and there’s a cross for me. 

 21. American Pie

A long, long time ago, I can still remember how that music used to make me smile.
And I knew if I had my chance that I could make those people dance
and maybe they'd be happy for a while. But February made me shiver with every paper I'd deliver.
Bad news on the doorstep. I couldn't take one more step. I can't remember if I cried,
when I read about his widowed bride, but something touched me deep inside the
day the music died.
So bye bye Miss American Pie. Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry,
them good ole boys were drinkin' whiskey and Rye, singing this'll be the day that I die, this'll be the day that I die.
 
Did you write the book of love and do you have faith in God above?
If the Bible tells you so, now do you believe in rock and roll?
Can music save your mortal soul, and can you teach me how to dance real slow?
Well I know that you're in love with him. 'Cause I saw you dancing in the gym.
You both kicked off your shoes, man I dig those rhythm and blues!
I was a lonely teenage broncin' buck, with a pink carnation and a pick up truck.
But I knew I was out of luck! The day the music died.
I started singing
Bye bye Miss American Pie... 
 
Now for ten years, we've been on our own and moss grows fat on a rolling stone, 
but that's not how it used to be when the jester sang for King and Queen 
in a coat he'd borrowed from James Dean and a voice that came from you and me 
oh and while the King was looking down the jester stole his thorny crown 
the courtroom was adjourned no verdict was returned. 
And while Lenin read a book of Marx the quartett practiced in the park 
and we sang dirges in the dark the day the music died. 
We were singin' 
Bye bye Miss American Pie... 
Helter skelter in the summer swelter the birds flew off with a fallout shelter 
eight miles high and falling fast as it landed on the grass. 
The players tried for a forward pass with the jester on the sidelines in a cast 
Now the half time air was sweet perfume while the sergeants played a marching tune. 
We all got up to dance oh but we never got the chance. 
Oh as the players tried to take the field, the marching band refused to yield. 
Do you recall what was revealed, the day the musik died. 
We started singin' 
Bye bye Miss American Pie... 
 
And there we were all in one a place, the generation lost in space, 
with no time left to start again. So come on, Jack be nimble, Jack be quick 
Jack Flash sat on a candle stick, 'cos fire is the devils only friend. 
Oh and as I watched him on the stage my hands were clenched in first of rage. 
No angel born in hell could break that satan spell. 
And as the flames climbed high into the night to light the sacrificial rite 
I saw Satan laughing with delight, the day the music died. 
He was singin' 
Bye bye Miss American Pie... 
 
I met a girl who sang the blues and I asked her for some happy news, 
but she just smiled and turned away. I went down to the sacred store, 
where I heard the music years before, but the man there said the music wouldn't play. 
And in the streets the children screamed, the lovers cried and the poets dreamed. 
But not a word was spoken. The church bells are well broken. 
And the three men I admire most: The Father, son and the holy ghost, 
they caught the last train for the coast, the day the music died. 
And they were singin' 
Bye bye Miss American Pie... (repeat)

Angelina, baby, won't you please come home.
Angelina, baby, won't you please come home.
You know my heart is aching and all my dreams have gone.
 
Well, now my bed is empty, my feet and my hands are cold.
You know my bed is empty, my feet and my hands are cold.
Come on home, Angelina, my love for you will never grow old.
Well, now I've tried to love you with diamonds and pearls,
But all that did was tear us apart.
And I've tried to give you everything in the world,
When all you really wanted: wound my heart.
 
Oh, Angelina, baby, won't you please come home.
Oh, Angelina, baby, won't you please come home.
You know my heart is aching and all my dreams have gone.
Well, I've tried to love you with diamonds and pearls,
But all that did was tear us apart.
And I've tried to give you everything in the world,
When all you really wanted: wound my heart, my heart.
 
Well, Angelina, baby, baby, won't you please come home.
Well, sweet Angelina, baby, won't you please come home.
You know my heart is aching and all my dreams have gone. - That's right, baby!
You know my heart is aching and all my dreams have gone.

 23. Angie

 
Angie, Angie, when will those clouds all disappear?
Angie, Angie, where will they lead us from here?
With no loving in our souls and no money in our coats,
You can't say we're satisfied. Angie, Angie you can't say we never tried .
 
Angie, you're beautiful, but ain't it time we said goodbye?
Angie, I still love you, remember all those nights we cried.
All the dreams we held so close seem to all go up in smoke,
Oh let me whisper in your ear: Angie, Angie where will they lead us from here?
Oh Angie don't you weep; all your kisses still taste sweet.
I hate that sadness in your eyes! But Angie, Angie ain't it time we said goodbye?
With no loving in our souls and no money in our coats; Oh you can't say we're satisfied!
But Angie, I still love you baby, everywhere I look I see your eyes.
There ain't a woman that comes close to you; come on baby dry your eyes!
Angie, Angie ain't it good to be alive? Angie, Angie they can't say we never tried!

 24. Anne Kaffeekanne

Es war einmal ein Mädchen, das Mädchen, das hieß Anne,
Die blies so gern Trompete auf der Kaffeekanne.
Tra-ri-tra-ra, tra--ri, tra-ri, tra-ra;
Bis dass die ganze Nachbarschaft "Aufhörn!" schrie.
Da flog sie, oh Pardon, auf dem Besenstiel da-von,
Geradeaus, über's Haus,
dreimal rum und hoch hin-aus.
 
Da kam sie an den Nordpol, und was war denn da? 
Da riefen alle Eskimos, wie wunderbar! 
Und einer sprach: "Gemach, gemach. 
Die Anne kocht uns Lebertran, an jedem Tag". Da flog sie... 
 
Dann kam sie in die Wüste, und was war denn da? 
Ein riesengroßer Löwe, der hungrig war. 
Und da sprach er: Ich mag dich sehr, 
Ich habe dich zum Fressen gern, Komm doch ein Stückchen näher! Da flog sie... 
 
Dann kam sie in die Alpen, und was war denn da? 
Da traf sie auch die Heidi, die beim Almöhi war. 
Sie sprach zu ihr: Komm flieg mit mir. 
Doch Heidi sprach: Ich war schon weg, Drum bleib' ich lieber hier. Da flog sie... 
 
Da kam sie in den Schwarzwald, und was war denn da? 
Da sprach ein Oberförster mit strohblondem Haar: 
Du bist genau, die richtige Frau. 
Du bringst mir die Pantoffeln für die Tagesschau. Da flog sie... 
 
Sie kam nach Wanne-Eickel, und was war denn da? 
Der kleine Hansi Heinemann, der einsam war. 
Er sprach zu ihr: Ich flieg' mit dir. 
Nimm diese Kaffeekanne als Geschenk von mir. Flogen sie... 

 25. Annie's Song

You fill up my senses
Like a night in a forest
Like the mountains in spring time
Like a walk in the rain
Like a storm in the desert
Like a sleepy blue ocean
You fill up my senses
come fill me again.
 
Come let me love you 
Let me give my life to you 
Let me drown in your laughter 
Let me die in your arms 
Let me lay down beside you 
Let me always be with you 
Come let me love you come love me again 
 
You fill up my senses... 

 26. Another Brick In the Wall

We don't need no education,
We don't need no thought control,
No dark sarcasm in the classroom,
Teacher leave them kids alone!
Hey, teacher! Leave them kids alone!
All in all it's just another brick in the wall.
All in all you're just another brick in the wall.
 
We don't need no education,

 27. Any Time at All

Anytime at all,
Anytime at all,
Anytime at all,
All you've gotta do is call,
And I'll be there.
 
If you need somebody to love,
Just look into my eyes,
I'll be there to make you feel right,
If you're feeling sorry and sad, I'd really sympathize. 
Don't you be sad, just call me tonight. 
 
Anytime at all, 
Anytime at all, 
Anytime at all, 
All you gotta do is call,

If the sun has faded away, 
I'll try to make it shine.

If you need a shoulder to cry on, I hope it will be mine, 
Call me tonight, and I'll come home tonight. 
 
Anytime at all, 
Anytime at all, 
Anytime at all, 
All you gotta do is call,

 28. Apeman

I think I'm sophisticated 'cause I'm living my life just like a good homo sapiens.
But all around me everybody's multiplying and they're walking round like flies man.
So I'm no better than the animals sitting in the cages in the zoo man.
Cause compared to the flowers and the birds and the trees I am an apeman.
 
I think I'm so educated and I'm so civilized 'cause I'm a strict vegetarian. 
But with the over-population and inflation and starvation and the crazy politicians: 
I don't feel safe in this world no more, I don't want to die in a nuclear war. 
I want to sail away to a distant shore and make like an apeman. 
I'm an apeman, I'm an ape, apeman, oh I'm an apeman!
I'm a King Kong man, I'm a voodooh man, oh I'm an apeman!
'Cause compared to the sun that sits in the sky, Compared to the clouds as they roll by,
Compared to the bugs and the spiders and flies I am an apeman.
In man's evolution he's created the city and the motor traffic rumble.
But give me half a chance and I'd be taking off my clothes and living in the jungle.
 
'Cause the only time that I feel at ease Is swinging up and down in the coconut trees.
Oh what a life of luxury to be like an apeman.
I'm an apeman, I'm an ape, apeman, oh I'm an apeman 
I'm a King Kong man, I'm a voodooh man, oh I'm an apeman 
I look out the window but I can't see the sky, The air pollution is a-fucking up my eyes, 
I want to get out of this city alive and make like an apeman. 
 
Oh come on and love me, be my apeman girl, And we'll be so happy in my apeman world.
I'm an apeman, I'm an ape, apeman, oh I'm an apeman 
I'm a King Kong man, I'm a voodooh man, oh I'm an apeman 
I'll be your Tarzan, you'll be my Jane, I'll keep you warm and you'll keep me sane, 
We'll sit in the trees and eat bananas all day, just like an apeman. 
 
I'm an apeman, I'm an ape, apeman, oh I'm an apeman 
I'm a King Kong man, I'm a voodooh man, oh I'm an apeman 
I don't feel safe in this world no more, I don't want to die in a nuclear war. 
I want to sail away to a distant shore and make like an apeman. 

 29. At My Window

At my window watching the sun go, Hoping the stars know it's time to shine.
Daydreams - aloft on dark wings, Soft as the sun streams at days decline.
Living is sying dying says nothing at all.
Babe and I are lying here watching the evening fall.
 
Time flows - through brave beginnings, And leaves her endings beneath our feet.
Walk lightly - upon their faces, Leave gentle traces upon their sleep.
Living is dancing dyin's doin' nothing at all. 
Babe and I are lying here watching the evening fall. 
 
Three dimes - hard luck and good times, Bad rhymes and fine lines not much to say.
Feel fine - feel low and lazy, Feel grey and hazy, feel far away.
Living ain't lying dying ain't flying so high. 
Babe and I are wandrin' watching the day go by. 

 30. Atlantis

The continent of Atlantis was an island which lay before the great flood
In the area we now call the Atlantic Ocean.
So great an area of land, that from her western shores, those beautiful sailors
journeyed to the south and the North Americas with ease,
in their ships with painted sails.
To the east Africa was a neighbor across a short strait of sea miles.
The great Egyptian age is but a remnant of the Atlantian culture.
 
The antedeluvian Kings colonised the world;
All the Gods who play a part in the mythological dramas in all legends
from all lands were from fair Atlantis.
Knowing her fate, Altantis sent out ships to all corners of the earth.
On board were the twelve, the poet, the physician, the farmer, the scientist,
the magician, and the other so called Gods of our legends.
Tho' Gods they were!
And as the elders of our time choose to remain blind,
let us rejoice and let us sing and dance and ring in the news.
 
Hail Atlantis!
 
Way down below the ocean, where I wanna be, she may be!
Way down... 

 31. Auf der Hülle von den Rolling Stones

Ich bring' die Massen zur Ekstase, hab' 'ne goldene Nase und alle Frauen finden mich stark.
Ich singe von Liebe und ich singe über Triebe am Abend für zehntausend Mark.
Ich werfe täglich einen Trip und dann bin ich ausgeflippt, nur einen Wunsch hätt' ich schon:
Das ist das Feeling, das Du kriegst, wenn Du Dich mal selber siehst
Auf der Hülle von den Rolling Stones.
Rolling Stones, hätt' ich nur ein Foto auf dem Futter, schicke fünf Kopien meiner Mutter!
Oh, ich möcht' mich lächeln sehen - auf der Hülle von den Rolling Stones.
 
Ich hab' 'ne tolle alte Dame. Gerda Wulf ist ihr Name. Die bringt meine Jeans auf Zack. 
Ich hab' so'n alten Typ mit Glatze, der fährt meinen Cadillac. 
Ich brauche nichts zu missen, habe seidene Kissen, nur einen Wunsch hätt' ich schon: 
Das ist das Feeling, das Du kriegst, wenn Du Dich mal selber siehst 
Auf der Hülle von den Rolling Stones. 
Rolling Stones, hätt' ich nur ein Foto auf dem Futter, schicke fünf Kopien meiner Mutter! 
Oh, ich möcht' mich lächeln sehen - auf der Hülle von den Rolling Stones. 
 
Ich hab' 'ne tierische Menge kleiner, blonder Groupies, Die halt ich mir nur so aus Gag. 
Ich hab 'nen genialen indischen Guru, der zeigt mir den neuen Weg. 
Ich habe alle Freunde, die für Geld zu kaufen sind, nur eins kriegst Du nicht davon: 
Das ist das Feeling, das Du kriegst, wenn Du Dich mal selber siehst 
Auf der Hülle von den Rolling Stones. 
Rolling Stones, hätt' ich nur ein Foto auf dem Futter, schicke fünf Kopien meiner Mutter! 
Oh, ich möcht' mich lächeln sehen - auf der Hülle von den Rolling Stones. 

 32. Auf der Reeperbahn nachts um halb eins

Silbern klingt und springt die Heuer, Heut speel ick dat feine Oos.
Heute ist mir nichts zu teuer, Morgen geht die Reise los.
Langsam bummel ich ganz alleine Die Reeperbahn nach der Freiheit rauf.
Treff ich eine recht blonde, recht feine, Die gabel ich mir auf.
Komm doch, liebe Kleine, sei die meine, sag nicht nein!
Du sollst bis morgen früh um Neune meine kleine Liebste sein.
Ist dir's recht, na dann bleib ich dir treu sogar bis um zehn.
Hak' mich unter, wir woll'n jetzt zusammen mal bummeln gehn.
Auf der - Reeperbahn nachts um halb eins - ob du'n Mädel hast oder hast keins,
amüsierst du dich, denn das findet sich - auf der Reeperbahn nachts um halb eins.
Wer noch niemals in lustiger Nacht solchen Reeperbahnbummel gemacht,
ist ein armer Wicht, denn er kennt dich nicht, mein Sankt Pauli, Sankt Pauli bei Nacht.
 
Kehr ich heim im nächsten Jahre, Braun gebrannt wie'n Hottentott, 
hast du deine blonden Haare Schwarz gefärbt, vielleicht auch rot. 
Grüßt dich dann mal ein fremder Jung', Und du gehst vorüber und kennst ihn nicht, 
kommt dir vielleicht die Erinnerung wieder, Wenn leis' er zu dir spricht: 
Komm doch, liebe Kleine, sei die meine, sag nicht nein! 
Du sollst bis morgen früh um Neune meine kleine Liebste sein. 
Ist dir's recht, na dann bleib ich dir treu sogar bis um zehn. 
Hak' mich unter, wir woll'n jetzt zusammen mal bummeln gehn.

 33. It's all over now, Baby Blue

You must leave now take what you need you think will last
But whatever you wish to keep you better grab it fast
Yonder stands your orphan with his gun
Crying like a fire in the sun.
Look out the Saints are comin' through
And it's all over now, Baby Blue.
 
The highway is for gamblers, better use your sense 
Take what you have gathered from coincidence 
The empty handed painter from your streets 
Is drawing crazy patterns on your sheets 
This sky too, is folding under you 
And it's all over now, Baby Blue. 
 
All your seasick sailors, they are rowing home 
All your reindeer armies, are all going home 
The lover who just walked out your door 
Has taken all his blankets from the floor 
The carpet too, is moving under you 
And it's all over now, Baby Blue. 
 
Leave your stepping stone behind, something calls for you 
Forget the dead you've left, they will not follow you 
The vagabond who's rapping at your door 
 

 34. Baby Please don't Go

Baby, please don't go.
Baby, please don't go.
Baby, please don't go, Down to New Orleans;
You know I love you so.
 
Before I be your dog; Before I be your dog; 
Before I be your dog, I get you way down here, 
And let you walk alone. 
 
Turn the lamp down low, Turn the lamp down low; 
Turn the lamp down low, I beg you all night long, 
Baby, please don't go. 
| | | | | | | | | | | | |
You know your man done gone, You know your man done gone; 
You know your man done gone, Down to Californ', 
He got the shackles on. 
You brought me way down here, You brought me way down here; 
You brought me way down here, 'bout to Rolling Forks, 
You treat me like a dog. 
 
Baby, please don't go, Baby, please don't go; 
Baby, please don't go, Down to New Orleans, 
I beg you all night long. 

 35. Back in the U.S.S.R

Flew in from Miami Beach B.O.A.C. - Didn't get to bed last night
On the way the paperback was on my knees - Man I had a dreadful flight
I'm back in the U.S.S.R. - You don't know how lucky you are boy
Back in the U.S., Back in the U.S., Back in the U.S.S.R. / / / /
 
Been away so long I hardly knew the place - Gee it's good to be back home
Leave it till tomorrow to unpack my case - Honey disconnect the phone
I'm back in the U.S.S.R. - You don't know how lucky you are boy 
Back in the U.S., Back in the U.S., Back in the U.S.S.R. 
Well the Ukraine girls really knock me out - They leave the West behind / / / / / / / /
And Moscow girls make me sing and shout
That Geogia's always on my mi mi mi mi mi mi mind / / / / (Oh come on!)

And Moscow girls make me sing and shout - 
That Geogia's always on my mi mi mi mi mi mi mind (Oh come on!) 
 
Oh, show me to your snow-peaked mountains way down south - Lead me to your daddy's farm 
Let me hear your balalaikais ringing out - Come and keep your comrade warm! 
I'm back in the U.S.S.R. - You don't know how lucky you are boy 
Back in the U.S., Back in the U.S., Back in the U.S.S.R. 

 36. Bad Moon Rising

// / / / // / / / / /
I see a bad moon a-risin'.
I see trouble's on the way.
I see earthquakes and lightnin'.
I see bad times today.
Don't go round tonight, it's bound to take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise!
 
I hear hurricanes a blowin' 
I know the end is comin' soon. 
I feel the river's overflowin' 
I hear the voice of rage and ruin. 
Don't go round tonight, it's bound to take your life, 
There's a bad moon on the rise! 
Hope you got your things together. 
Hope you're quite well prepared to die. 
Looks like we're in for nasty weather. 
One eye is taken for an eye. 
Don't go round tonight, it's bound to take your life, 
There's a bad moon on the rise! 
Don't go round tonight, it's bound to take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise!

 37. The Ballad Of A Crystal Man

Walk along and talk along, And live your lives quite freely.
But leave our children with their toys, Of peppermint and candy.
For seagull, I don't want your wings, I don't want your freedom, in a lie.
 
Your thoughts they are of harlequin, Your speeches of quick-silver. 
I read your faces like a poem, Kaleidoscope of hate words. 
For seagull, I don't want your wings, I don't want your freedom, in a lie. 
 
On the quilted battle-fields of soldiers, Dazzling made of toy tin. 
The big bomb, like a child's hand, Could sweep them dead just so to win. 
For seagull, I don't want your wings, I don't want your freedom, in a lie. 
 
As you fill your glasses, With the wine of murdered Negroes. 
Thinking not of beauty that, Spreads like morning sun-glow. 
For seagull, I don't want your wings, I don't want your freedom, in a lie. 
 
I pray your dreams of vivid screams, Of children dying slowly. 
And as you polish up your guns, Your real self be re-flecting. 
For seagull, I don't want your wings, I don't want your freedom, in a lie. 
Vietnam; your latest game, You're playing with your blackest Queen. 
Damn your souls and curse your grins, I stand here with a fading dream. 
For seagull, I don't want your wings, I don't want your freedom, in a lie.

Daylight come an' I wanna go home.
Six han' seven han' eight han' bunch! 
Daylight come an' I wanna go home.
 
Come mister tally man tally me banana.
Daylight come an' I wanna go home.
Come mister tally man tally me banana. 
Daylight come an' I wanna go home.
Day-oh, Day-oh;
Daylight come an' I wanna go home.
Day-oh, Day-oh;

 39. Banks of the Ohio

I asked my love,to take a walk; Take a walk, just a little walk.
Down beside where the waters flow; Down by the banks of the Ohio.
And only say, that you'll be mine. In no others arms entwine.
Down beside where the waters flow, down by the banks of the Ohio.
 
I held a knife against her breast, as into my arms she pressed.
She cried: "Oh Willie, don't murder me, I'm not prepared for eternity".
And only say, that you'll be mine. In no others arms entwine.
Down beside where the waters flow, down by the banks of the Ohio.
I started home 'tween twelve and one, I cried: "My God, what have I done?
Killed the only woman I loved, because she would not be my bride".
And only say, that you'll be mine. In no others arms entwine.
Down beside where the waters flow, down by the banks of the Ohio.

 41. Behind Blue Eyes

No one knows what it's like, to be the bad man
To be the sad man, behind blue eyes!
No one knows what it's like to be hated,
To be fated, to telling only lies!
But my dreams, they aren't as empty
As my conscience seems to be
I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance that's never free
 
No one knows what it's like to feel these feelings 
Like I do, and I blame you 
No one bites back as hard on their anger 
None of my pain and woe, can show through 
 
When my fist clenches crack it open
Before I use it and lose my cool
When I smile tell me some bad news
Before I laugh and act like a fool
 
And if I swallow anything evil
Stick your finger down my throat
And if I shiver please give me a blanket
Keep me warm let me wear your coat
 
 
No one knows what it's like, to be the bad man 
To be the sad man, behind blue eyes

 43. Belle Isle

One evening for pleasure I rambled to view the fair fields all alone.
Down by the banks of Loch Eiron where beauty and pleasure were known.
I spied a fair maid at her labour which caused me to stay for a while.
And I thought of a goddess of beauty bloomin bright star of bright isle.
 
I humbled myself to her beauty "Fair maiden, where do you be-long?
Are you from heaven descended abiding in cupids fair throne?"
"Young man, I will tell you a secret It's true I'm a maid that is poor.
And to part from my vows and my promise Is more than my heart can endure.
 
Therefore I remain at my service And go through all my hardship and toil
And wait for the lad that has left me All alone on the banks of belle isle".
 
 
"Young maiden I wish not to banter It's true I come here in disguise.
I came here to fulfill our last promise And hope to give you a surprise.
I've known you're a maid I love dearly And you've been in my heart all the while.
For me there is no other damsel Than my bloomin bright star of belle isle".

 44. Better Things

Here's wishing you the bluest sky
hoping something better comes tomorrow,
Hoping all the verses rhyme,
And the very best of choruses too.
Follow all the doubt and sadness
I know that better things are on their way.
 
Here's hoping that the days ahead 
Won't be as bitter as the ones behind you. 
Be an optimist instead, 
And somehow happiness will find you. 
Forget what happened yesterday, 
I know that better things are on their way. 
It's really good to see you rocking out and having fun,
Living like you've just begun.
Accepting life for what it brings,
I hope tomorrow you find better things.
I hope tomorrow you find better things.  
 
Here's wishing you the bluest sky 
And hoping something better comes tomorrow. 
Hoping all the verses rhyme, 
And the very best of choruses too. 
Follow all the drudge and sadness 
I know that better things are on the way. 
I know you've got a lot of good things happ'ning up ahead. 
The past is gone, it's all been said. 
So here's to what the future brings, 
I hope tomorrow you find better things. 
I hope tomorrow you find better things. 

 45. Big River

Now I taught the weeping willow how to cry,
and I showed the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky.
And the tears that I cried for that woman are gonna flood you Big River.
Then I'm gonna sit right here until I die.
 
I met her accidentally in St. Paul Minnesota. 
And it tore me up ev'ry time I heard her drawl, Southern drawl. 
Then I heard my dream was back downstream cavortin' in Davenport, 
And I followed you, Big River, when you called. 
 
Then you took me to St. Louis later on down the river. 
A freighter said she's been here but she's gone, boy, she's gone. 
I found her trail in Memphis, but she just walked up the block. 
She raised a few eyebrows and then she went on down alone. 
 
Now, won't you batter down by Baton Rouge, River Queen, roll it on. 
Take that woman on down to New Orleans, New Orleans. 
Go on, I've had enough; dump my blues down in the gulf. 
She loves you, Big River, more than me. 
 
Now I taught the weeping willow how to cry... 

 46. Bird on the Wire

Like a bird on the wire, like a drunk in a midnight choir,
I have tried in my way to be free.
 
Like a worm on a hook, like a knight from some old-fashioned book,
I have saved all my ribbons for thee.
If I, if I have been unkind,
I hope that you can just let it go by.
If I, if I have been untrue,
I hope you know it was never to you.
 
Like a baby stillborn, like a beast with his horn,
I have torn everyone who reached out for me.
 
But I swear by this song and by all that I have done wrong!
I will make it all up to thee.
I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden crutch.
He said to me, "You must not ask for so much."
And a pretty woman leaning in her darkened door,
She cried to me, "Hey, why not ask for more?"
Like a bird on the wire, like a drunk in a midnight choir,
I have tried in my way to be free

Got a black magic woman,got a black magic woman,
Yes, I've got a black magic woman, got me so blind I can't see,
that she's a black magic woman and she's try'in to make a devil out of me.
 
Don't turn your back on me baby, don't turn your back on me baby, 
Yes, don't turn your back on me baby, stop messin' around with your tricks. 
Don't turn your back on me baby, 'cause you just might pick up my magic sticks. 
You got your spell on me baby, you got your spell on me baby, 
Yes, you got your spell on me, baby, turnin' my heart into stone. 
I need you so bad, magic woman, I can't leave you alone. 
 
Yes, I need you so bad; I need you, darlin'; I need you, darlin'.
Yes, I want you to love me; I want you to love me. Oh, Yeah! Oh-oh, yeah; 
Yes, I need your love; Oh, I need your love so bad, I need your love... 

 49. Blowin' in the Wind

How many roads must a man walk down before you call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail before she sleeps in the sand?
How many times must the cannonballs fly before they are forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.
 
How many years can a mountain exist before it is washed to the sea? 
How many years can some people exist before the're allowed to be free? 
How many times can a man turn his head, pretending 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. 

 50. Blue Suede Shoes

Well it's a one for the money, two for the show
Three to get ready, now go cat go but don't you step on my blue suede shoes
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes
 
Well you can knock me down, step in my face
Slander my name all over the place and do anything that you want to do
But ah ah honey lay off of my shoes and don't you step on my blue suede shoes
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes
 
Well you can burn my house, steal my car
Drink my liquor from an old fruit jar and do anything that you want to do
But ah ah honey lay off of my shoes and don't you step on my blue suede shoes
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes
 
Well it's a one for the money, two for the show

 51. Blueberry Hill

I found my thrill - On Blueberry Hill,
On Blueberry Hill, When I found you.
The moon stood still - On Blueberry Hill,
And lingered until - My dreams came true.
 
The wind in the willow played
Love's sweet melody.
But all of those vows you made
Were never to be.
 
Tho' we're apart, You're part of me still;
For you were my thrill - On BlueBerry Hill.
 
The wind in the willow played
Love's sweet melody.
But all of those vows you made
Were never to be.
 
Tho' we're apart, You're part of me still;
For you were my thrill - On BlueBerry Hill.

 52. Boat On The River

Take me back to my boat on the river,
I need to go down, I need to come down.
Take me back to my boat on the river
and I won’t cry out anymore.
 
Time stand still as I gaze in water, 
she eases me down, touching me gently, 
with the waters that flow past my boat on the river, 
so I don’t cry out anymore. 
 
Oh the river is wise the river it touches
my life like the waves on the sand;
and all roads lead to tranquility base
where the frown on my face disappears.
 
Take me down to my boat on the river
and I won’t cry out anymore.
Oh the river is wise the river it touches 
my life like the waves on the sand; 
and all roads lead to tranquility base 
where the frown on my face disappears. 
 
Take me down to my boat on the river 
I need to go down, won’t you let me go down 
Take me back to my boat on the river 
and I won’t cry out anymore. 

 53. Bobby Brown

Hey there, people, I'm Bobby Brown - They say I'm the cutest boy in town.
My car is fast, my teeth is shiney - I tell all the girls they can kiss my heinie.
 
Here I am at a famous school - I'm dressin' sharp 'n' I'm acting cool.
I got a cheerleader here - wants to help with my paper - Let her do all the work 'n' maybe later I'll rape her.
Oh God I am the American dream, I do not think I'm too extreme.
An' I'm a handsome sonofabitch - I'm gonna get a good job'n' be real rich! (get a good, get a good ...)
 
Women's liberation came creepin' all across the nation;
I tell you people, I was not ready when I fucked that dyke by the name of Freddie.
 
She made a little speech then - aaw, she tried to make me say when.
She had my balls in a vice, but she left the dick I guess it's still hooked on, but now it shoots too quick.
Oh God I am the American dream, But now I smell like Vaseline.
An' I'm a miserable sonofabitch - Am I a boy or a lady? I don't know which! (I wonder, wonder ...)
 
So I went out'n' bought me a leisure suit I jingle my change, but I'm still kinda' cute
Got a job doin' radio promo an' none of the jocks can even tell I'm a homo
 
Eventually me'n' a friend sorta drifted along into S and M
I can take about an hour on the tower of power long as I get's little golden shower
Oh God I am the American dream - With a spindle up my butt till it makes me scream
An' I'll do anything to get ahead - I lay awake nights sayin', "Thank you, Fred"
 
Oh God, Oh God, I'm so fantastic! Thanks to Freddie, I'm a sexual spastic
And my name is Bobby Brown - Watch me now; I'm goin' down

 56. Born Under A Bad Sign

Born under a bad sign - I've been down since I began to crawl
If it wasn't for bad luck - I wouldn't have no luck at all
 
Bad luck and trouble's my only friend
I've been down ever since I was ten
Born under a bad sign - I've been down since I began to crawl
If it wasn't for bad luck - I wouldn't have no luck at all
I can't read, never learned how to write
My whole life is one big fight
Born under a bad sign - I've been down since I began to crawl
If it wasn't for bad luck - I wouldn't have no luck at all
 
Oh wine and women is all I crave
A big legged woman's gonna carry me to my grave
Born under a bad sign - I've been down since I began to crawl
If it wasn't for bad luck - I wouldn't have no luck at all
Bad luck and trouble's my only friend
I've been down ever since I was ten
Born under a bad sign - I've been down since I began to crawl
If it wasn't for bad luck - I wouldn't have no luck
If it wasn't for real bad luck - I wouldn't have no luck at all
Born under a bad sign - Born under a bad sign

 57. Brain Damage

- The lunatic is on the grass, - The lunatic is on the grass,
- Rememb´ring games and daisy chains and laughs,
Got to keep the loonies on the path.
 
- The lunatic is in the hall,- The lunatics are in my hall. 
 
- The paper holds their folded faces to the floor, 
And ev´ry day the paper boy brings more.
And if the dam breaks open many years too soon,
And if there is no room upon the hill.
And if your head explodes with dark, forebodings , too,
- I´ll see you on the dark side of the moon.
 
- The lunatic is in my head, "HaHaHaHa" - The lunatic is in my head. 
 
- You raise the blade, - You make the change - You rearange me till I´m sane. 
 
- You lock the door, -And throw away the key 
 
- There´s someone in my head but it´s not me. 
 
- And if the cloud bursts thunder in your ear, - You shout and no one seems to hear, 
 
- And if the band you´re in starts playin´diff´rent tunes, 
 
-I´ll see you on the dark side of the moon. 
 

 58. Breathe

Breathe, breathe in the air - Don't be afraid to care
Leave but don't leave me - Look around and chose your own ground
For long you live and high you fly - And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry
And all you touch and all you see - Is all your life will ever be
 
Run, run, rabbit, run - Dig that hole, forget the sun,
And when at last the work is done - Don't sit down it's time to start another one
For long you live and high you fly - But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave - You race toward an early grave.
Home, home again - I like to be there when UI can
When I come in cold and tired - It's good to warm my bones beside the fire
Far away across the field - The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees - To hear the softly spoken magic spells.

 59. Bring It On Home To Me

If you ever change your mind about leaving, leaving me behind,
Oh, bring it to me, bring your sweet lovin',

Oh, bring it to me, bring your sweet lovin', 
bring it on home to me, yeah, yeah, yeah. 
 
I'll give you jewelry and money, too, that ain't all I'll do for you. 
Oh, bring it to me, bring your sweet lovin', 
bring it on home to me, yeah, yeah, yeah. 
 
You know I'll always be your slave, 'til im buried, buried in my grave. 
Oh, bring it to me, bring your sweet lovin', 
bring it on home to me, yeah, yeah, yeah. 
 
I tried to treat you right, but you stayed out, stayed out tonight. But I forgive you: 
Bring it to me, bring your sweet lovin', 
bring it on home to me, yeah, yeah, yeah.

 61. Bruttosozialprodukt

Wenn früh am Morgen die Werkssirene dröhnt
Und die Stechuhr beim Stechen lustvoll stöhnt;
In der Montagehalle die Neonsonne strahlt
Und der Gabelstaplerführer mit der Stapelgabel prahlt:
Ja dann wird wieder in die Hände gespuckt,
Wir steigern das Bruttosozialprodukt;
Ja, ja, jetzt wird wieder in die Hände gespuckt!
 
Die Krankenschwester kriegt 'nen Riesenschreck:
Schon wieder ist ein Kranker weg!
Sie amputierten ihm sein letztes Bein
Und jetzt kniet er sich wieder mächtig rein!
Ja jetzt wird wieder in die Hände gespuckt, 
Wir steigern das Bruttosozialprodukt; 
Ja, ja, jetzt wird wieder in die Hände gespuckt! 
 
Wenn sich Opa am Sonntag auf sein Fahrrad schwingt 
Und heimlich in die Fabrik eindringt, 
Dann hat Oma Angst, daß er zusammenbricht, 
Denn Opa macht heute wieder Sonderschicht: 
Ja jetzt wird wieder in die Hände gespuckt, 
Wir steigern das Bruttosozialprodukt; 
Ja, ja, jetzt wird wieder in die Hände gespuckt! 
 
An Weihnachten liegen alle rum und sagen: Puuh! 
Der Abfalleimer geht schon nicht mehr zu, 
Die Gabentische werden immer bunter, 
Und am Mittwoch kommt die Müllabfuhr 
Und holt den ganzen Plunder - und sagt: 
Ja jetzt wird wieder in die Hände gespuckt, 
Wir steigern das Bruttosozialprodukt; 
Ja, ja, jetzt wird wieder in die Hände gespuckt! 
 
Wenn früh am Morgen die Werkssirene dröhnt 
Und die Stechuhr beim Stechen lustvoll stöhnt:

Und jetzt singen sie zusammen im Arbeitstakt, Takt, Takt:

Wir steigern das Bruttosozialprodukt; 
Ja, ja, jetzt wird wieder in die Hände gespuckt! 

 62. The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill

Hey Bungalow Bill, what did you kill, Bungalow Bill?
Hey Bungalow Bill, what did you kill, Bungalow Bill?
 
He went out tiger hunting with his elephant and gun.
In case of accidents he always took his mom.
He's the all american bullet headed saxon mother's son!
All the children sing: Hey Bungalow Bill, what did you kill, Bungalow Bill?
Hey Bungalow Bill, what did you kill, Bungalow Bill?
 
Deep in the jungle where the mighty tiger lies
Bill and his elephant were taken by surprise.
So Captain Marvel zapped him right between the eyes!
All the children sing: Hey Bungalow Bill, what did you kill, Bungalow Bill?
Hey Bungalow Bill, what did you kill, Bungalow Bill?
 
The children asked him if to kill was not a sin?
"Not when he looked so fierce" his mommy butted in!
If looks could kill it would have been us instead of him!
All the children sing: Hey Bungalow Bill, what did you kill, Bungalow Bill?
Hey Bungalow Bill, what did you kill, Bungalow Bill?

 63. Bye Bye Johnny

She drew out all her money at the Southern Trust
And put her little boy upon a Greyhound bus. 
Leaving Louisiana for the golden west -
Down came the tears from her happiness.
Her own little son named Johnny B. Goode -
Was going to make some motion pictures out in Hollywood.
Bye bye bye bye, Bye bye bye bye;
Bye-bye Johnny, Goodbye Johnny B. Goode!
 
She remembered taking money earnt from gathering crop
And buying Johnny's guitar at a broker's shop. 
As long as he would play it by the railroad side -
He wouldn't get in trouble, he was satisfied.
But never thought there'd ever come a day like this -
When she would have to give her son a goodbye kiss.
Bye bye bye bye, Bye bye bye bye;
Bye-bye Johnny, Goodbye Johnny B. Goode!
 
 
She finally got the letter she'd been dreaming of
Johnny wrote and told her he had fell in love. 
As soon as he was married he would bring her back -
And build a mansion for them by the railroad track.
So every time they heard the locomotive roar
They'd be standing and waving in the kitchen door.
Bye bye bye bye, Bye bye bye bye;
Bye-bye Johnny, Goodbye Johnny B. Goode!

 64. Bye Bye Love

There goes my baby with someone new.

Bye bye love. bye bye sweet caress. Hello emptiness.
I feel like I could die. Bye bye, my love, bye bye.
 
I'm through with romance. I'm through with love.
I'm through with counting the stars above.
and here's the reason that I'm so free.
my lovin' baby is through with me.
Bye bye love. Bye bye happiness. Hello loneliness.
I think i'm a gonna cry.
Bye bye love. bye bye sweet caress. Hello emptiness.

 66. Calm After the Storm

Driving in a fast lane - Counting mile marker signs.
The empty seat beside me- Keeps you on my mind.
Living in a heartache - Was never something I pursued
I can't keep on chasing - What I can be for you.
Ooooh - skies are black and blue,
Thinking about you - Here in the calm after the storm.
 
Tears on a highway - Water in my eyes,
This rain ain't gonna change us - So what's the use to cry?
I can say I'm sorry - But I don't wanna lie,
I just wanna know if staying - Is better than goodbye.
Ooooh - skies are black and blue,
Thinking about you - Here in the calm after the storm.
Ooooh - after all that we've been through,
There ain't nothin' new - Here in the calm after the storm.
Maybe I can find you - Down this broken line,
Maybe you can find me - I guess we'll know in time.
Ooooh - skies are black and blue,
Thinking about you - Here in the calm after the storm.
There ain't nothin' new - Here in the calm after the storm.

 67. Can't Buy me Love

Can't buy me lo-o-ove - lo-o-ove - Can't buy me lo-ove
I'll buy you a diamond ring, my friend, if it makes you feel allright.
I'll get you anything, my friend, if it makes you feel allright.
For I don't care too much for money - for money can't buy me love!
 
I'll give you all I've got to give if you say you love me too.
I may not have a lot to give but what I've got I'll give to you.
For I don't care too much for money, for money can't buy me love!
Can't by me lo-o-ove - Ev'ry body tells me so
Can't by me lo-o-ove - No, no, no, no.
 
Say you don't need no diamond ring and I'll be satisfied.
Tell me that you want those kind of things that money just can't buy!
For I don't care too much for money - for money can't buy me love!
Can't buy me lo-o-ove - lo-o-ove - Can't buy me lo-ove - love!

 68. Catch the Wind

In the chilly hours and minutes
of uncertainty I want to be
in the warm hold of your lovin' mind.
To feel you all around me,
and to take your hand along the sand,
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind.
De de de dee, de De de de dee, de De de de dee, de Dee de Dee
 
When sundown pales the sky 
I want to hide a while behind your smile 
And ev'rywhere I'd look, your eyes I'd find. 
For me to love you now 
would be the sweetest thing, t'would make me sing, 
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind. 
De de de dee... 
 
When rain has hung the leaves with tears 
I want you near to kill my fears 
To help me to leave all my blues behind. 
Standin' in your heart 
is where I want to be and long to be, 
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind. 

 69. Celia Of The Seals

Should you wander this land to the North, - And few seldom do,
Should you follow the song of the gull - To enchanted western isles,
Coax a fisherman to take you out - Where the silky seals are seen,
Hear the stories that they tell about - The maiden who is their queen,
The maiden who is their queen.
Celia of the seals, - She knows just how they feel, - Celia of the seals.
|: Oy, Yada Noy, Yada Noya; Oy, Yada Noy, Yada Nay. :|
 
Seal hunters are not brave and bold, - They murder her poor wee seals.
And cut off their skins to be sold, - Cursed be he who deals.
There's no reason for this slaughtering, - They're left on the rocks to bleed.
He's not a man who does this thing, - It's a cruel and a heartless deed,
A cruel and heartless deed.
|: Celia of the seals, - She knows just how they feel,
Celia of the seals. - Celia of the seals. :|
Celia of the seals.
|: Oy, Yada Noy, Yada Noya; Oy, Yada Noy, Yada Nay. :|

 70. Les champs élysées

Je m'baladais sur l'avenue, le coeur ouvert à l'inconnu.
J'avais envie de dire bonjour à n'importe qui
N'importe qui et ce fut toi, je t'ai dit n'importe quoi,
Il suffisait de te parler, pour t'apprivoiser.
Aux Champs-Élysées, -- aux Champs-Élysées!
Au soleil, sous la pluie, à midi ou à minuit,
Il y a tout ce que vous voulez aux Champs-Élysées.
 
Tu m'as dit "J'ai rendez-vous dans un sous-sol avec des fous,
Qui vivent la guitare à la main, du soir au matin".
Alors je t'ai accompagnée, on a chanté, on a dansé
Et l'on n'a même pas pensé à s'embrasser
Aux Champs-Élysées, -- aux Champs-Élysées! 
Au soleil, sous la pluie, à midi ou à minuit, 
Il y a tout ce que vous voulez aux Champs-Élysées. 
Hier soir deux inconnus et ce matin sur l'avenue,
Deux amoureux tout étourdis par la longue nuit.
Et de l'Étoile à la Concorde, un orchestre à mille cordes,
Tous les oiseaux du point du jour, chantent l'amour
Aux Champs-Élysées... 

 71. Child in Time

 
Sweet Child in time - You'll see the line.
The line that's drawn between - The good and the bad.
See the blind man - Shooting at the world:
Bullets flying - Taking toll.
 
If you've been bad, Lord I bet you have,
And you've not been hit - By flying lead.
You'd better close your eyes, And bow your head
Wait for the ricochet.
 
Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah...
 
Sweet child in time - You'll see the line 
The line that's drawn - Between the good and the bad. 
See the blind man - Shooting at the world 
Bullets flying - Taking toll. 
If you've been bad, Lord I bet you have, 
And you've not been hit - By flying lead. 
You'd better close your eyes - And bow your head 
And wait for the ricochet. 

 72. City of New Orleans

Riding on the City of New Orleans, Illinois Central, Monday morning rail.
Fifteen cars and fifteen restless riders, Three conductors, and twenty-five sacks of mail.
 
All slong the southbound odyssey -- The train pulls out of Kankakee
And rolls along the houses, farms and fields.
Passing trains that have no name -- And freight yards full of old black men
And graveyards of the rusted automobiles.
Good morning America, how are you? Say don't you know me, I'm your native son.
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans, I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done.
 
Dealing card games with the old men in the club cars, A penny a point, ain't no one keeping score. 
Pass the paper bag that holds the bottle, And feel the wheels rumbling 'neath the floor. 
 
And the sons of Pullman porters -- And the sons of engineers 
Ride their fathers' magic carpet made of steel. 
Mothers with their babes asleep -- Rocking to the gentle beat 
And the rhythm of the rails is all they feel. 
Good morning America, how are you? Say don't you know me, I'm your native son. 
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans, I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done. 
 
Nighttime on the City of New Orleans, Changing cars in Memphis, Tennesee. 
Halfway home, and we'll be there by morning, Through the Misissippi darkness, rolling down to the sea. 
 
But all the towns and people seem -- To fade into a bad dream 
The steel rail still ain't heard the news. 
The conductor sings his songs again -- The passengers will please refrain 
This train's got the disappearin' railroad blues. 
Goodnight America, how are you? Say don't you know me, I'm your native son. 
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans, I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done. 

 73. Cold Cold Ground

Crest fallen sidekick in an old cafe
never slept with a dream before he had to go away
there's a bell in the tower uncle Ray bought a round
Never worry 'bout the army
in the cold cold ground
Cold cold ground
Cold cold ground
Cold cold ground
 
Now don't be a cry baby when there's wood in the shed 
there's a bird in the chimeny and a stone in my bed 
when the road's washed out they pass a bottle around 
and waits in the arms 
of the cold cold . . . 
 
there's a ribbon in the willow and a tire swing rope 
and a briar patch of berries takin' over the slope 
the cat'll sleep in the mailbox and we'll never go to town 
till we bury every dream 
in the cold cold . . . 
 
Gimme a Winchester rifle and a whole box of shells 
blow the roof of the goat barn let it roll down the hill 
the piano is firewood Times Square is a dream 
I find we lay down together 
in the cold cold . . . 
 
Call the cops on the Breadloves bring a bible and a rope 
and a whole box of rebel and a bar of soap 
make a pile of trunk tires 
and burn 'em all down bring a dollar with you baby 
in the cold cold . . . 
 
Take a weather vane rooster throw rocks at his head 
stop talking to the neighbors till we all go dead 
beware of my temper and the dog that I found 
break all the windows 
in the cold cold . . . 

 74. Colours

Yellow is the colour of my true loves hair -
in the morning when we rise;
in the morning when we rise:
That's the time, that's the time I love the best.
 
Blue is the colour of the sky-y-y - 
in the morning when we rise; 
in the morning when we rise: 
That's the time, that's the time I love the best. 
 
Green is the colour of the sparklin' corn - 
in the morning when we rise; 
in the morning when we rise: 
That's the time, that's the time I love the best. 
 
Mellow is the feelin' that I get - 
when I see her Mmhmm; 
when I see her A-ha: 
That's the time, that's the time I love the best. 
Freedom is a word I rarely use - 
Without thinkin' Mmhmm; 
without thinkin' Mmhmm: 
of the time, of the time when I've been loved. 

 75. Come Away, Melinda

Daddy, daddy, come and look! See what I have found
A little ways away from here,
While digging in the ground.
Come away Melinda. Come in and close the door.
It's nothing, just a picture book they had before the war.
 
Daddy, daddy, come and see! Daddy come and look!
Why there's four or five little Melinda girls
Inside my picture book.
Come away Melinda. Come in and close the door.
There were lots of little girls like you before they had the war
 
Oh daddy, daddy, come and see! Daddy hurry do!
Why there's someone in a pretty dress,
She's all grown up like you. Won't you tell me why?
Come away Melinda. Come in and close the door.
That someone is your mommy you had before the war.
 
Daddy, daddy, tell me if you can.
Why can't things be the way they were before the war began?
Come away Melinda. Come in and close the door.
The answer lies in yesterday before they had the war.

 76. Coming into Los Angeles

Coming in from London from over the pole
Flying in a big airliner.
Chickens flyin' everywhere around the plane,
Could we ever feel much finer!
Coming into Los Angeles, Bringing in a couple of keys-
Don't touch my bags if you please Mr. Customs man!
 
There's a guy with a ticket to Mexico,
No, he couldn't look much stranger.
Walking in the hall with his things and all,
Smiling said he was the Lone Ranger.
Coming into Los Angeles, Bringing in a couple of keys-
Don't touch my bags if you please Mr. Customs man!
 
Hip woman walking on the moving floor,
Tripping on the escalator.
There's a man in the line and she's blowing his mind,
Thinking that he's already made her.
Coming into Los Angeles, Bringing in a couple of keys-
Don't touch my bags if you please Mr. Customs man!

 77. Complicated Life

Well I woke up this morning with a pain in my neck, A pain my heart, and a pain my chest,
I went to the doctor and the good doctor said:
You gotta slow down your life or you're gonna be dead,
"Cut out the struggle and strife, It only complicates your life."
 
Well I cut down women, I cut down booze,
Stopped iron' my shirts, cleaning my shoes,
Stopped going to work and stopped reading the news,
Sitting twiddling my thumbs 'cos I got nothing to do,
Minimal exercise To help uncomplicate my life,
Gotta stand and face it, life is so complicated!
Ladi dah di dah dah, Ladi dah di dah dah,
Got to get away from the complicated life son!
Life is overrated, life is complicated
Must aleviate this complicated life
"Cut down the struggle and strife, It's such a complicated life."
 
Like old Mother Hubbard I got nothin' in the cupboard,
Got no dinner and I got no supper, Holes in my shoes I got holes in my socks,
I can't go to work 'cos I can't get a job,
The bills are rising sky high, It's such a complicated life,
Gotta stand and face it, Life is so complicated
Ladi dah di dah dah, Ladi dah di dah dah, Got to get away from the complicated life son! 
Life is overrated, life is complicated Must aleviate this complicated life! 
 
Ladi dah di dah dah(Life is overrated), Ladi dah di dah dah(Life is complicated), 
Got to get away from(Got to get away) the complicated life son! 
Life is overrated, life is complicated, Must aleviate this complicated life! 
Got to get away from the complicated life son...

 78. Copper Kettle

Get you a copper kettle, get you a copper coil,
Fill it with new-made corn mash and never more you'll toil.
You'll just lay there by the juniper, while the moon is bright,
Watch them jugs a-filling - in the pale moonlight.
 
Build you a fire with hickory, hickory, ash and oak,
Don't use no green or rotten wood; they'll get you by the smoke.
We just lay there by the juniper, while the moon is bright,
Watch them jugs a-filling - in the pale moonlight.
 
My daddy, he made whiskey; my granddaddy, he did too.
We ain't paid no whiskey tax since seventeen-ninety-two.
We just lay there by the juniper, while the moon is bright,
Watch them jugs a-filling - in the pale moonlight,
In the pale moonlight.

 79. Country Honk

//// //// //// //// //// //// //// //// //// ///// //// ////
I'm sittin' in a bar tippling a jar in Jackson
And on the street the summer sun it shines
There's many a bar-room queen I've had in Jackson
But I just can't seem to drink you off my mind
It's the ho-ho-ho-honky tonk women
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues
 
I laid a divorcee in New York City
I had to put up some kind of a fight
The lady she all dressed me up in roses
She blew my nose and then she blew my mind
It's the ho-ho-ho-honky tonk women
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues
It's the ho-ho-ho-honky tonk women
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues
It's the ho-ho-ho-honky tonk women
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues

 80. Take me Home, Country Roads

Almost heaven, West Virginia, Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River.
Life is old there, older than the trees, Younger than the mountains growing like a breeze.
Country roads, take me home, to the place I belong!
West Virginia mountain momma, take me home, country roads!
 
All my memories gather 'round her; Miner's lady, stranger to blue water.
Dark and dusty painted on the sky - Misty taste of moonshine teardrop in my eye.
Country roads, take me home to the place I belong!
West Virginia, mountain momma, take me home, country roads
 
I hear her voice, in the morning hour she calls me!
The radio reminds me of my home far away.
And drivin' down the road I get a feelin'
that I Should have been home yesterday, yesterday:
Country roads, take me home to the place I belong!
West Virginia, mountain momma, take me home, country roads

 81. Cowgirl In The Sand

Hello cowgirl in the sand, hello cowgirl in the sand.
Is this place at your command?
Can I stay here for a while? Can I see your sweet, sweet smile?
Old enough, now, to change your name when so many love you, is it the same?
It's the woman in you that makes you want to play this game
 
Hello ruby in the dust, hello ruby in the dust.
Has your band begun to rust?
After all the sin we've had I was hoping that we'd turn back
Old enough, now, to change your name when so many love you, is it the same?
It's the woman in you that makes you want to play this game
 
Hello, woman of my dreams. hello woman of my dreams
Is it not the way it seems?
Purple words on a gray background, to be a woman and to be turned down
Old enough, now, to change your name when so many love you, is it the same?
It's the woman in you that makes you want to play this game

 82. Coz I Luv You

You make me out a clown then you put me down I still luv you

A bachelor you will stay, and Dandy, you're all right.

What a day for a daydream
What a day for a daydreamin' boy
And I'm lost in a daydream
Dreamin' bout my bundle of joy
And even if time ain't really on my side
It's one of those days for takin' a walk outside
I'm blowin' the day to take a walk in the sun
And fall on my face on somebody's new-mowed lawn
 
I've been havin' a sweet dream
I been dreamin' since I woke up today
It's starring me and my sweet dream
'Cause she's the one that makes me feel this way
And even if time is passin' me by a lot
I couldn't care less about the dues you say I've got
Tomorrow I'll pay the dues for dropping my load
A pie in the face for bein' a sleepy bull toad
 
 
And you can be sure that if you're feelin' right
A daydream will last 'til long into the night
Tomorrow at breakfast you may prick up your ears
or you may be daydreamin' for a thousand years
 
What a day for a daydream...

Oh, I could hide 'neath the wings
Of the bluebird as she sings

But it rings and I rise
Wipe the sleep out of my eyes
My shaving razor's cold and it stings
Cheer up sleepy Jean
Oh what can it mean to a
Daydream believer and a
Homecoming que-eehee-een
 
Oh, you once thought of me
As a white knight on his steed
Now you know how happy I can be.
And our good times start and end
Without dollar one to spend
But how much, baby, do we really need:
...

Well when you're sitting there in your silk upholstered chair,
Tal-king to some rich folk that you know.
Well I hope you won't see me in my ragged company,
You know I could never be alone.
Take me down little Susie, take me down.
I know you think you're the queen of the underground.
And you can send me dead flowers every morning,
Send me dead flowers by the mail.
Send me dead flowers to my wedding,
And I won't forget to put roses on your grave.
 
When you're sitting back in your rose pink cadillac,
Making bets on Kentucky Derby Day.
I'll be in my basement room with a needle and a spoon,
And another girl to take my pain away.
Take me down little Susie, take me down.
I know you think you're the queen of the underground.
And you can send me dead flowers every morning,
Send me dead flowers by the mail.
Send me dead flowers to my wedding,
And I won't forget to put roses on your grave.
Take me down little Susie, take me down.
I know you think you're the queen of the underground.
And you can send me dead flowers every morning,
Send me dead flowers by the U.S. mail.
Send me dead flowers to my wedding,
And I won't forget to put roses on your grave.
No I won't forget to put roses on your grave.

 94. Death of a Clown

My makeup is dry and it cracks on my chin
I'm drowning my sorrows in whiskey and gin
The lion tamer's whip doesn't crack anymore
The lions they won't bite and the tigers won't roar
La la la La la la La la la La - So let's all drink to the death of a clown
Won't someone help me to break up this crown - Let's all drink to the death of a clown
La la la La la la La la la La - Let's all drink to the death of a clown
 
The old fortune teller lies dead on the floor
Nobody needs fortunes told anymore
The trainer of insects is crouched on his knees
And frantically looking for runaway fleas
La la la La la la La la la La - So let's all drink to the death of a clown
Won't someone help me to break up this crown - Let's all drink to the death of a clown
La la la La la la La la la La - Let's all drink to the death of a clown
La la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la
La la la La la la La la la La - let's all drink to the death of a clown

They seek him here, they seek him there;
His clothes are loud but never square.
It will make or break him so he's got to buy the best:
Cos' he's a dedicated follower of fashion
 
And when he does his little rounds, 
Round the boutiques of London town; 
Eagerly pursuing all the latest fancy trends: 
Cos' he's a dedicated follower of fashion. 
Oh yes he is (oh yes he is), oh yes he is (oh yes he is)!
He thinks he is a flower to be looked at,
And when he pulls his frilly nylon panties right up tight,
He feels a dedicated follower of fashion.
 
Oh yes he is (oh yes he is), oh yes he is (oh yes he is)! 
There's one thing that he loves and that is flattery 
One week he's in polka dots the next week he's in stripes 
Cos he's a dedicated follower of fashion 
 
They seek him here, they seek him there; 
In Regent's Street and Leister Square. 
Everywhere the Carnebetian army marches on: 
Each one a dedicated follower of fashion. 
Oh yes he is (oh yes he is), oh yes he is (oh yes he is)! 
His world is built round discotheques and parties. 
This pleasure seeking individual always looks his best: 
Cos' he's a dedicated follower of fashion. 
 
Oh yes he is (oh yes he is), oh yes he is (oh yes he is) 
He flits from shop to shop just like a butterfly. 
In matters of the cloth he is as flickle as can be: 
 
Cos' he's a dedicated follower of fashion
He's a dedicated follower of fashion.
He's a dedicated follower of fashion. / / / / /

 96. Delilah

I saw the light on the night that I passed by her window.
I saw the flickering shadows of love on her blind.
She was my woman - as she deceived me
I watched and went out of my mind.
My, my, my Delilah. - Why, why, why Delilah?
I could see that girl Was not good for me,
But I was lost like a slave That no man could free.
 
At break of the day when that man drove away I was waiting.
I crossed the street to her house and she opened the door.
She stood there laughing, I felt the knife in my hand
and she laughed no more.
My, my, my Delilah, Why, why, why Delilah?
So before they come to break down the door,
Forgive me, Delilah, I just couldn't take any more.
 
Forgive me Delilah, I just couldn't take any more.

 97. Der Cowboy Jim aus Texas

Der Cowboy Jim aus Texas Der tags auf seinem Pferd saß
hat einen Hut aus Stroh - und darauf saß ein Floh.
Jippi-jeh, jippi-jeh, jippi-jeh, jeh,
jeh, jeh, jeh.
 
Der Floh tat Jim begleiten, Er hatte Spaß am Reiten; 
Und ging der Jim aufs Klo, Dann tat das auch sein Floh. 
Jippi-jeh... 
 
Oft macht das Reiten Mühe, Jim hütet hundert Kühe. 
Da kommt er oft in Schweiß Und ruft: Ach, was fürn Scheiß. 
Jippi-jeh... 
 
Am Tschikitschoba-See Ruft Jim sein Jippijeh. 
Doch einst am Lagerfeuer Da wars ihm nicht geheuer. 
Jippi-jeh... 
 
Im ersten Morgengrauen Da wollt man Jim verhauen. 
Man schlich zu Jimmy fix, der schlief und merkte nix. 
Mmmh-Mmmh, mmmh mmh mmh mmh mmmh 
 
Der Floh, der hört es trappeln Und tat sich gleich berappeln 
Und stach als echter Floh Den Cowboy in den Po. 
Jippi-jeh... 
 
Der Jim stand auf und fluchte, Als er das Weite suchte. 
So wars nichts mit Verhauen Im ersten Morgengrauen. 
Jippi-jeh... 
 
Der Cowboy Jim aus Texas Sitzt oft bei seiner Oma. 
Und beide schaun sich dann im Fernsehn' Cowboyfilme an. 
Jippi-jeh... 
Jippi-jeh... 

 98. Der Hase Augustin

Es war einmal ein Hase, der hieß Augustin und lief unglaublich schnell.
Wenn der so durch die Gegend lief und seine fixen Haken schlug,
dann blieben alle Leute stehn, um Augustin zu sehn.
Seht mal wer da rennt, seht mal, wer da rennt,
das ist wohl der Augustin, das Naturtalent.
 
Augustin, der flitzte, sprang über manche Pfütze und aß gern Rosenkohl. 
Doch kam der Gärtner angerannt, schon war der schnelle Hase weg, 
der Gärtner stand im Rosenkohl und staunte gar nicht schlecht. 
Dreimal Sapperment, dreimal Sapperment, 
das ist wohl der Augustin, das Naturtalent. 
 
Einmal kam ein Jäger, ein dicker, fetter Jäger, Herr Schlamm aus Düsseldorf, 
der hatte sich 'ne Jagd gekauft und wollte jetzt auf Hasen gehen, 
da kommt schon einer angerannt, Herr Schlamm hat ihn erkannt: 
Dreimal Sapperment ... 
 
Herr Schlamm nahm seine Flinte, die knallte los und stank, 
schon flitzt der Hase weg. Die Kugel hinterher doch der Hase war zu schnell, 
die Kugel fiel in’n Dreck und Herr Schlamm, der schimpfte sehr: 
Dreimal Sapperment ... 
 
Augustin war stolz, er trug die Nase hoch und einen Orden auch. 
Er wurde Landesmeister gar im großen Zickzackdauerlauf 
und bei der Ehrenrunde sangen alle Mann ganz laut: 
Seht mal wer da rennt ... 

 99. Der Malocher

Die Alte zuhaus war auch nicht mehr das, was sie früher einmal war.
Schon morgens saß sie vor der Glotze, mit Lockenwicklern im Haar.
Wenn er schlapp von der Maloche nach hause kam, saß sie immer noch da
und sagte: "Hier hast'n Korn, der bringt dich wieder nach vorn."
Und im Fernsehn läuft der Kommissar.
 
Er hatte die Schnauze von diesem Leben voll, er wär so gern ausgeflippt.
Und mit solchen Gedanken hat er dann nochmal an seinem Glas genippt.
Und dann schmiss er's mit Karacho voll ins TV, 
und schrie: "Ihr glaubt wohl ich bin nicht ganz dicht!
Jeden Abend Fusel schlucken und dann in die Röhre kucken
und dann pennen und dann wieder zur Schicht." (Chachacha...Huh...)
Der Malocher aus 'm Ruhrgebiet, tat nun etwas, was sonst nur selten geschieht
schmiss seiner Frau das Mobiliar vor die Füße und sagte: "Eh jetzt ist aber Schluß meine Süße.
 
Und mit dem Lottogewinn, das haut ja doch nicht mehr hin. Komm Weib mach meinen Koffer klar!
Ich hau jetzt ab nach Paris, da ist das Leben so süß.
Da trink ich Sekt im Alkazar und tanze Chachacha!"
 
Er fuhr mit der Bahn, erster Klasse, nach Paris "Gare du Nord". 
Er bestellte sich Champagner, den trank er aus der Flasche und kam sich ganz schön super vor. 
 
Und als er dann da war und schon nicht mehr ganz klar war, da traf er ein charmantes Mädel. 
Und am nächsten Morgen war er allein im Hotel, ohne Kies und mit 'nem schweren Schädel. 
(Chachacha...Huh...) 
Der Malocher aus 'm Ruhrgebiet, tat nun etwas, was sonst nur selten geschieht 
schmiss seiner Frau das Mobiliar vor die Füße und sagt: "Eh jetzt ist aber Schluß meine Süße. 
 
Und mit dem Lottogewinn, das haut ja doch nicht mehr hin. Komm Weib mach meinen Koffer klar. 
Ich hau jetzt ab nach Paris, da ist das Leben so süß. 
Da trink ich Sekt im Alkazar und tanze Chachacha!" (Huh.) 

100. Der musikalische Wasserhahn

Es war einmal ein Wasserhahn, Der tropfte pausenlos,
Und jeder der ihn hörte fand Den Rhythmus ganz famos.
Er tropfte nicht nur einfach so, Wie's jeder Hahn versteht
Sein Rhythmus war voll Swing und Pep - Und Musikalität.
Tipi tipi tup tup, tropft der Rhythmus; Tipi tipi tup tup, immerzu.
Tipi tipi tup tup, tropft der Wasserhahn - Und findet keine Ruh.
 
Die Tassen applaudierten, und das Handtuch rief entzückt: 
"Dein Rhythmus, lieber Wasserhahn, klingt ja total verrückt." 
Die Messer und die Gabeln tanzten quietschvergnügt umher, 
Und auch dem alten Suppentopf gefiel der Rhythmus sehr. 
Tipi tipi tup tup, tropft der Rhythmus; Tipi tipi tup tup, immerzu. 
Tipi tipi tup tup, tropft der Wasserhahn - Und findet keine Ruh. 
 
Der Flötenkessel tanzte mit und pfiff die Melodie, 
Die Teller klapperten im Schrank mit sehr viel Phantasie. 
Die Töpfe schepperten im Schrank, die Gläser klirrten leis, 
Der Abfalleimer rülpste laut und drehte sich im Kreis 
Tipi tipi tup tup, tropft der Rhythmus; Tipi tipi tup tup, immerzu. 
Tipi tipi tup tup, tropft der Wasserhahn - Und findet keine Ruh. 
 
Da sprach die alte Küchenuhr, daß ihr der Takt gefällt 
und hat ihr Ticken auf den Wasserrhythmus umgestellt. 
Auf einmal geht die Türe auf, der Klempner kam herein, 
der Wasserhahn wurd' repariert und lies das Tropfen sein. 
Tipi tipi tup tup, tropft der Rhythmus; Tipi tipi tup tup, immerzu. 
Tipi tipi tup tup, tropft der Wasserhahn - Und findet keine Ruh. 

101. Der Pfeifer

Ich ritt aus San Alfredo im letzten Tageslicht
Vielleicht auch aus El Paso, so genau weiß ich das nicht.
Seit 40 Tagen 40 Nächten war ich auf der Flucht,
in jeder Stadt fand ich mein Bild darunter stand: Gesucht.
Sie nannten mich den Stillen und flüsterten mir nach,
dass wenn ich was zu sagen hätte mein Colt für mich sprach.
Sie nannten mich den Pfeifer und meine Devise hieß, 
wenn dir wer vor die Mündung kommt, erst pfeife, und dann schieß. 
Warum ich pfiff das weiß ich nicht, weiß nicht mal wie ich heiß, 
im Westen ist es niemals gut wenn einer zu viel weiß. 
Ich weiß nur wo mein Lied erklang da wurden Bretter knapp, 
weil jeder Schreiner wußte, daß es Arbeit für ihn gab. 
 
Als ich nach Bloody Corner kam, sah ich schon von weitem her, 
die Summe unter meinem Namen hatte zwei Stellen mehr. 
Ein Prämienjäger sagte: "Pfeifer, ich wart schon auf dich!" 
Ich fuhr herum, pfiff einen Ton, dann sprach mein Colt für mich. 
Als wenig später im Salon mein 38iger spie, 
da spielte der Mann am Klavier dazu die Melodie Am C Am G Am E Am 
 
Die Ellenbogen aufgestützt, die Flügeltür im Blick, 
stand neben mir ein Fremder, sehr glatt Rasiert und dick. 
"Man nennt mich hier den Denker", so stellte er sich vor, 
spie lässig in den Spucknapf und sagte mir ins Ohr: 
"Wenn du 10.000 Dollar brauchst, dann hab ich einen Plan, 
totsicher genial einfach!" dankbar nahm ich an. 
 
Jetzt sitz ich hinter Gittern, von Zweifeln angenagt, 
vielleicht war doch des Denkers Plan so gut nicht, wie er gesagt. 
Er sagte: "das bringt dir 10.000,- Dollar wenn du’s wagst, 
zum Sheriff ins Büro zu geh’n dich vor stellst und sagst: 
Grüß Gott, ich bin der Pfeifer, komm selber wie ihr seht, 
um die Belohnung zu kassieren die auf meinen Kopf steht". 
 
Ich sitz auf meines Pferdes Rücken unter dem Galgenbaum. 
Einen Strick um meinen Hals der Henker hält mein Pferd im Zaum. 
Gleich gibt er ihm die Zügel und dann ist's mit mir vorbei. 
Der Totengräber gräbt mein Grab und pfeift mein Lied dabei. 
Scharfrichter tut seine Pflicht, mein Pferd setzt sich in Trab 
Und unten Brüllt der Regisseur: "Verdammte Schlamperei, 
nun ist der Ast zum 3. Mal abgebrochen, der Film ist auch gerissen, 
also Kinder für heute ist Feierabend, die Leiche dreh'n wir morgen ab". 

102. Der Tag des Herrn

Am ersten Tag schuf Gott, der Herr, das Licht.
Weiter kam der gute Mann trotz aller Allmacht leider nicht. 
Den Himmel nur am zweiten Tag, am dritten bloß das Land.
Paar Bäumchen grade noch, mehr bracht er nicht zustand
 
Den vierten Tag verbrauchte er für Sonne, Sterne, Mond.
Tag Fünf für Fische und die Vögelein, da hat er sich geschont. 
Am sechsten Mensch und Rest der Tierwelt hingefummelt.
Und den siebten dann in seinem stolzen Übermut verbummelt.
Was kann son Gott nicht alles schaffen in vierundzwanzig Stunden,
aber er hat sein Werk ja gleich für gut befunden.
Legte sich zur Ruhe und wollte nichts mehr wissen.
Und wir Geschöpfe sind jetzt gottseidank ganz schön angeschissen.
 
Wär ich der Herr gewesen, dann wär die Welt nicht so.
Die Menschen wären sattgefressen, friedlich, frei und froh. 
Die Blinden könnten sehn, und die Lahmen könnten gehn.
Das bisschen Arbeit, dass noch bliebe würd von selber geschehn.
Saufen wär gesund und vom Singen könnt man leben. 
Es hätte fraglos noch 'ne Menge zu verbessern gegeben. 
Als Gott muß man was rausholn aus seinem Potential.
Da muß man auch mal sonntags ran, aber ihn konnten ja alle mal.
Was kann son Gott nicht alles schaffen in vierundzwanzig Stunden, 
aber er hat sein Werk ja gleich für gut befunden. 
Legte sich zur Ruhe und wollte nichts mehr wissen. 
Und wir Geschöpfe sind jetzt gottseidank ganz schön angeschissen. 
 
Im Grund ist sein Versagen ja kein seltnes Phänomen,
auch der Mensch, nach seinem Bild geschaffen, läßt sich gern mal gehn. 
Schaut stolz auf jeden Scheißdreck, den er produziert.
Auch wenn der Haufen stinkt, er lächelt fasziniert.
Und er kann als der Schöpfer auf den ganzen Kosmos sehn. 
Das funkelt ja so schön, wie sollts ihm anders gehn. 
Den siebten Tag beschließt der Herr zu verpennen
und ihn den Tag des Herrn zu nennen.
Was kann son Gott nicht alles schaffen in vierundzwanzig Stunden, 
aber er hat sein Werk ja gleich für gut befunden. 
Legte sich zur Ruhe und wollte nichts mehr wissen. 
Und wir Geschöpfe sind jetzt gottseidank ganz schön angeschissen. 
 
Dies Lied endet wie so manches mit einer Moral.
Wir waren unserm Herrn von Anfang an ziemlich egal. 
Das steht gleich auf der ersten Seite von dem dicken Buch.
Ich mach es wieder zu. Das sagt mir schon genug.
|: Was kann son Gott nicht alles schaffen in vierundzwanzig Stunden, 
aber er hat sein Werk ja gleich für gut befunden. 
Legte sich zur Ruhe und wollte nichts mehr wissen. 
Und wir Geschöpfe sind jetzt gottseidank ganz schön angeschissen.:| 
Und wir Geschöpfe sind jetzt gottseidank ganz schön angeschissen.

103. Diamonds on the Inside

I knew a girl, Her name was truth, - She was a horrible liar.
She couldn’t spend one day alone - But she couldn’t be satisfied.
When you have everything - You have everything to lose.
She made herself a bed of nails,
And she’s planning on putting it to use. -
But she had diamonds on the inside, - She had diamonds on the inside,
She had diamonds on the inside, - Di-ia-monds.
 
A candle throws its light into the darkness,
In a nasty world, so shines a good deed.
Make sure the fortune that you seek - Is the fortune that you need.
Tell me why the first to ask - Is the last to give every time.
What you say and do not mean - Follows you close behind.
She had diamonds on the inside, - She had diamonds on the inside,
She wore diamonds on the inside, - Di-ia-monds - Di-ia-monds.
Like a soldier long standing under fire, - Any change comes as a relief.
Let the givers name remain unspoken, - She is just a generous thief.
She had diamonds on the inside, - She had diamonds on the inside,
She wore diamonds on the inside, - She wore di-ia-monds, - Oh, di-ia-monds,
She had di-ia-monds, - She wore di-ia-monds, - Di-ia-monds.

104. Caprifischer

Wenn bei Capri die rote Sonne im Meer versinkt,
und vom Himmel die bleiche Sichel des Mondes blinkt,
zieh'n die Fischer mit ihren Booten aufs Meer hinaus,
und sie werfen im weiten Bogen die Netze aus.
Nur die Sterne, sie zeigen ihnen am Firmament,
ihren Weg mit den Bildern, die jeder Fischer kennt,
und von Boot zu Boot das alte Lied erklingt, hör von fern, wie es singt:
Bella, bella, bella, bella Marie, bleib' mir treu, ich komm' zurück morgen früh'.
Bella, bella, bella, bella Marie, vergiss mich nie.
Sieh den Lichterschein, draußen auf dem Meer.
Ruhelos und klein, was kann das sein, was irrt dort spät nachts umher?
Weißt du was da fährt, was die Flut durchquert?
Ungezählte Fischer, deren Lied von fern man hört.
 
Wenn bei Capri die rote Sonne im Meer versinkt,

Bella, bella, bella, bella Marie, vergiss mich nie. 
Bella Marie, vergiss mich nie.

105. Die Diplomatenjagd

Auf Schloß Hohenhecke zu Niederlahr -- Es hat soeben getagt --
Lädt Freiherr Bodo, wie jedes Jahr, zur Diplomatenjagd.
Durch Felder und Auen auf haarige Sauen,
In Wiesen und Büschen den Hirsch zu erwischen,
Den hat Freiherr Bodo für teures Geld
Am Vorabend selber hier aufgestellt.
 
Schon bricht es herein in Wald und Flur, das diplomatische Corps, 
Die Ritter vom Orden der Konjunktur, zwei Generäle zuvor. 
Bei Hörnerquinten, mit Prügeln und Flinten. Es folgt mit Furore ein Monsignore. 
Selbst den klapprigen Ahnherrn von Kieselknirsch 
- Trägt man auf der Bahre mit auf die Pirsch! 
 
Es knallen die Büchsen, ein Pulverblitz, es wird soeben gesagt, 
Daß Generalleutnant von Zitzewitz den Verlust seines Dackels beklagt. 
Der Attaché Mehring erlegt einen Hering - Den tiefgefroren, die Kugeln durchbohren, 
Noch in Frischhaltepackung, das ist unerhört! 
Ein Keiler ergibt sich, vom Lärm ganz verstört. 
 
Bewegt sich dort etwas am Waldesrand? Der Ahnherr sieht nicht mehr recht. 
Das kriegt kurzerhand eins übergebrannt! Denn schießen kann er nicht schlecht, 
Ja, ganz ohne Zweifel: Er schießt wie der Teufel! 
- Man trägt ihn ganz leise bis dicht an die Schneise. 
Man reicht ihm die Büchse, es prasselt das Schrot: 
So findet der Außenminister den Tod. 
 
Daß der Ahnherr daraufhin noch "Waidmannsheil" schreit, hat alle peinlichst berührt. 
Ihm wird ein Protestschreiben überreicht, besonders scharf formuliert! 
Doch muß man dem Alten zugute halten: Das war, bei Hubertus, ein prächtiger Blattschuß, 
Und daß er das Wort Diplomatenjagd, 
Nur etwas zu wörtlich genommen hat! 
 
Die Nacht bricht herein, und Schloß Hohenhecke bietet ein friedliches Bild. 
Der Monsignore segnet die Strecke von leblosem, greisem Wild. 
Schon fast vergessen, will doch keiner essen: 
Die Veteranen, die zähen Fasanen, Die Ente mit Rheuma, den Keiler mit Asthma. 
Die Jagd wird begossen, und dann wird beschlossen: 
Der Krempel wird, weil man hier großzügig denkt, Dem nächsten Armenhaus geschenkt! 
 
So wird auch den Ärmsten der Segen zuteil: Es lebe das Weidwerk, dreimal Waidmannsheil! 

106. Die Freiheit

Vor ein paar Tagen ging ich in den Zoo
Die Sonne schien, mir war ums Herz so froh
Vor einem Käfig sah ich Leute stehn
Da ging ich hin um mir das näher anzusehen
 
"Nicht füttern" stand auf einem grossen Schild
Und "bitte nicht reizen, da sehr wild!"
Erwachsene und Kinder schauten dumm
Und nur ein Wärter schaute grimmig und sehr stumm
 
Ich fragte ihn "Wie heisst denn dieses Tier?"
"Das ist die Freiheit!" sagte er zu mir
"Die gibt es jetzt so selten auf der Welt,
Drum wird sie hier für wenig Geld zur Schau gestellt,
 
Ich schaute und ich sagte "Lieber Herr!
Ich seh ja nichts, der Käfig ist doch leer"
"Das ist ja grade" - sagte er - "der Gag!
Man sperrt sie ein und augenblicklich ist sie weg!"
 
Die Freiheit ist ein wundersames Tier
Und manche Menschen haben Angst vor ihr
Doch hinter Gitterstäben geht sie ein
Denn nur in Freiheit kann die Freiheit Freiheit sein.
denn nur in Freiheit kann die Freiheit Freiheit sein!

107. Die Gedanken sind frei

Die Gedanken sind frei, Wer kann sie erraten,
Sie fliehen vorbei, Wie nächtliche Schatten.
Kein Mensch kann sie wissen, Kein Jäger erschießen,
Es bleibet dabei: die Gedanken sind frei!
 
Ich denke was ich will Und was mich beglücket, 
Doch alles in der Still', Und wie es sich schicket. 
Mein Wunsch, mein Begehren Kann niemand verwehren, 
Es bleibet dabei: Die Gedanken sind frei! 
 
Und sperrt man mich ein Im finsteren Kerker, 
Das alles sind rein vergebliche Werke; 
Denn meine Gedanken Zerreißen die Schranken 
Und Mauern entzwei: Die Gedanken sind frei! 
 
Drum will ich auf immer Den Sorgen entsagen 
Und will mich auch nimmer Mit Willen verklagen. 
Man kann ja im Herzen Stets lachen und scherzen 
Und denken dabei: Die Gedanken sind frei! 

108. Die Gitarre und das Meer

Jimmy Braun, das war ein Seemann,
Und sein Herz war ihm so schwer,
Doch es blieben ihm zwei Freunde:
Die Gitarre und das Meer.
 
Jimmy wollt' ein Mädchen lieben,
Doch ein andrer kam daher,
Und als Trost sind ihm geblieben,
Die Gitarre und das Meer.
Juanita hieß das Mädchen,
Aus der großen fernen Welt.
Und so nennt er die Gitarre,
Die er in den Armen hält.
(Juanita, Juanita) (Juanita, Juanita)
 
Ob am Kai von Casablanca,
Ob am Kap von Salvador,
Singt er leise Juanita,
Deren Liebe er verlor.
Juanita hieß das Mädchen,
Aus der großen fernen Welt.
Und so nennt er die Gitarre,
Die er in den Armen hält.
 
Jimmy wollt' kein andres Mädchen,
Doch sein Leben war nie leer,
Denn es lieben ihn zwei Freunde:
Die Gitarre und das Meer.

109. Die Internationale

Wacht auf, Verdammte dieser Erde,
die stets man noch zum Hungern zwingt!
Das Recht wie Glut im Kraterherde
nun mit Macht zum Durchbruch dringt.
Reinen Tisch macht mit dem Bedränger!
Heer der Sklaven, wache auf!
Ein Nichts zu sein, tragt es nicht länger
Alles zu werden, strömt zuhauf!
|: Völker, hört die Signale! Auf zum letzten Gefecht!
Die Internationale - erkämpft das Menschenrecht. :|
 
Es rettet uns kein höh'res Wesen, 
kein Gott, kein Kaiser, noch Tribun, 
Uns aus dem Elend zu erlösen 
können wir nur selber tun! 
Leeres Wort: des Armen Rechte, 
Leeres Wort: des Reichen Pflicht! 
Unmündig nennt man uns und Knechte, 
duldet die Schmach nun länger nicht! 
|: Völker, hört die Signale! Auf zum letzten Gefecht! 
Die Internationale - erkämpft das Menschenrecht. :| 
 
In Stadt und Land, ihr Arbeitsleute, 
wir sind die stärkste der Partei'n 
Die Müßiggänger schiebt beiseite! 
Diese Welt muss unser sein; 
Unser Blut sei nicht mehr der Raben, 
Nicht der nächt'gen Geier Fraß! 
Erst wenn wir sie vertrieben haben 
dann scheint die Sonn' ohn' Unterlass! 
|: Völker, hört die Signale! Auf zum letzten Gefecht! 
Die Internationale - erkämpft das Menschenrecht. :| 

110. Die Leiche

(intro)
Es schwimmt eine Leiche imTeich,
Mein Blick fiel aus dem Fenster, ich sah sie sofort.
Es schwimmt eine Leiche imTeich,
war's vielleicht nur ein Unfall oder war es ein Mord?
Sie schwimmt auf dem Bauch und von hier sieht es so aus als ob sie döst,
Ein friedlicher Anblick, sie wirkt fast ein bisschen erlöst.
 
Es schwimmt eine Leiche im Teich, 
Ich sitz auf dem Rasen, ein Hund läuft vorbei. 
Es schwimmt eine Leiche im Teich, 
Wahrscheinlich holt gleich jemand die Polizei. 
Ich würde sie dir gerne zeigen, aber du bist nicht hier, 
Bist plötzlich verschwunden, ich hoffe, dir ist nichts passiert. 
 
Es schwimmt eine Leiche im Teich, 
Ich sitze im Schatten und schaue ihr zu. 
Es schwimmt eine Leiche im Teich, 
Sie hat deine Figur und sie trägt deine Schuh. 
Ich werde ein klein wenig traurig, warum nur? Ich weiß es nicht, 
Ich glaube, ein bisschen erinnert sie mich an dich. 
 
Es schwimmt eine Leiche im Teich, 
Ob sie irgendwer sucht, ob sie jemand vermisst? 
Es schwimmt eine Leiche im Teich, 
Ich würd' dich gern fragen, ob du weißt, wer sie ist. 
Ich warte seit Tagen auf dich und ich frage mich, wo du bleibst? 
Ich gebe die Hoffnung nicht auf, dass du wenigstens schreibst. 
 
Es schwimmt eine Leiche im Teich, 
Ich hab mich gefragt, warum niemand was macht? 
Es schwimmt keine Leiche im Teich, 
denn ich grub ein Loch in die Erde in finsterer Nacht. 
Ich trug sie ins Grab, sie war nass und so kalt, es war trotzdem schön. 
Es war ziemlich dunkel, ich hab ihr Gesicht nicht geseh'n. 
 
Und ich weiß zwar nicht, wo du jetzt bist, doch ich hoff' du vergisst mich nicht. 
Denn bis du zurück kommst, so lang werd' ich warten - auf dich. 
Auf dich... 

111. Die Moorsoldaten

Wohin auch das Auge blicket, Moor und Heide nur ringsum.
Vogelsang uns nicht erquicket, Eichen stehen kahl und krumm.
Wir sind die Moorsoldaten und ziehen mit dem Spaten - ins Moor.
 
Hier in dieser öden Heide ist das Lager aufgebaut, 
wo wir fern von jeder Freude hinter Stacheldraht verstaut. 
Wir sind die Moorsoldaten und ziehen mit dem Spaten - ins Moor. 
 
Morgens ziehen die Kolonnen in das Moor zur Arbeit hin. 
Graben bei dem Brand der Sonne, doch zur Heimat steht ihr Sinn. 
Wir sind die Moorsoldaten und ziehen mit dem Spaten - ins Moor. 
 
Heimwärts, heimwärts jeder sehnet, nach den Eltern, Weib und Kind. 
Manche Brust ein Seufzer dehnet, weil wir hier gefangen sind. 
Wir sind die Moorsoldaten und ziehen mit dem Spaten - ins Moor. 
 
Auf und nieder gehn die Posten keiner, keiner kann hindurch. 
Flucht wird nur das Leben kosten, vierfach ist umzäunt die Burg. 
Wir sind die Moorsoldaten und ziehen mit dem Spaten - ins Moor. 
 
Doch für uns gibt es kein Klagen, ewig kann's nicht Winter sein. 
Einmal werden froh wir sagen: Heimat, du bist wieder mein. 
Dann ziehn die Moorsoldaten nicht mehr mit dem Spaten - ins Moor! 
 
Far and wide as the eye can wander, Heath and bog are everywhere.
Not a bird sings out to cheer us. Oaks are standing gaunt and bare.
We are the peat bog soldiers, Marching with our spades to the moor.
 
Up and down the guards are marching, No one, no one can get through.
Flight would mean a sure death facing, Guns and barbed wire block our view.
We are the peat bog soldiers, Marching with our spades to the moor.
 
But for us there is no complaining, Winter will in time be past.
One day we shall rise rejoicing. Homeland, dear, you're mine at last.
We are the peat bog soldiers, Marching with our spades to the moor.

112. Die Rübe

In ’ner Ecke vom Garten hat der Paule sein Beet, und da hat er sich dieses Jahr Rüben gesät.
Und da, wo sonst Bohnen die Stangen hochklettern, wächst jetzt eine Rübe mit riesigen Blättern.
 
Paul staunt, und er sagt sich: Ei, wenn ich nur wüsst, wie groß und wie schwer diese Rübe wohl ist.
Schon krempelt er eilig die Ärmel hoch, packt die Rübe beim Schopf und zog und zog.
 
Doch die Rübe, die rührt sich kein bisschen vom Fleck. Paul zieht, und Paul schwitzt, doch er kriegt sie nicht weg.
Da ruft der Paul seinen Freund, den Fritz, und der kommt auch gleich um die Ecke geflitzt.
Hauruck!, zieht der Paul, und Hauruck!, zieht der Fritz. Alle Mann, nix wie ran, ganz egal, ab man schwitzt.
Die Rübe ist dick, und die Rübe ist schwer, wenn die dicke, schwere Rübe doch schon rausgezogen wär!
 
Jetzt zieh'n sie zu zweit mit Hallo und Hauruck, doch die Rübe bleibt drin, sie bewegt sich kein Stück.
Und Fritz, der läuft los, holt vom Nachbarn den Klaus, zu dritt kommt die Rübe ganz sicher heraus.
 
Herrje, was ’ne Rübe, ja da staunt auch der Klaus. Jetzt ziehn wir ganz fest, und dann kommt sie schon raus.
Doch die Rübe, die saß drin, und da sagte der Klaus: Ich hol meine Schwester, die ist grad zu Haus.
Hauruck!, zieht der Paul, und Hauruck!, zieht der Fritz. Alle Mann, nix wie ran, ganz egal, ab man schwitzt. 
Die Rübe ist dick, und die Rübe ist schwer, wenn die dicke, schwere Rübe doch schon rausgezogen wär! 
 
Jetzt ziehn sie zu viert, doch die Rübe bleibt drin. Der Fritz meint schon traurig: ’s hat doch keinen Sinn.
Ganz plötzlich ruft Paul: Hier, ich hab ’ne Idee, wie wär’s, wenn wir mal zum Antonio gehen?
 
Doch da meint der Klaus: So was hilft uns nicht weiter. Das sind doch alles Kinder von so Gastarbeitern.
Mein Vater sagt immer, die verschwänden viel besser. Und außerdem sind das Spaghettifresser!
 
Das ärgert den Paul, was der Klaus da so spricht. Der Antonio ist kräftig, und dumm ist er nicht.
Und außerdem, Klaus, hast du eins wohl vergessen, du hast dich an Spaghetti neulich fast überfressen.
 
Wir brauchen Antonio und auch seine Brüder. Klaus’ Schwester versteht’s, und sie läuft schnell hinüber,
hat alle geholt, und gemeinsam ging’s ran. Alle Kinder zusammen, die packten jetzt an.
Hauruck!, zieht der Paul, und Hauruck!, zieht der Fritz. Alle Mann, nix wie ran, ganz egal, ab man schwitzt. 
Die Rübe ist dick, und die Rübe ist schwer, wenn die dicke, schwere Rübe doch schon rausgezogen wär! 
 
Den Antonio zieht der Carlo mit Hallo und Hauruck! Und sieh da, die dicke Rübe, die bewegt sich ein Stück.
Und jetzt noch mal Hauruck, und die Erde bricht auf, die Rübe kommt raus und liegt groß obendrauf.
Die Kinder, die purzeln jetzt all durcheinander, doch freut sich ein jeder nun über den andern.
Sie sehn, wenn man so was gemeinsam anpackt, wird die alleedickste Rübe aus der Erde geschafft.

113. Dirty Old Town

I met my love by the gas works wall, Dreamed a dream by the old canal,
Kissed my girl by the fact'ry wall, Dirty old town, dirty old town.
 
I heard a siren from the docks, Saw a train set the noght on fire, 
Smelled the spring on the smoky wind, Dirty old town,dirty old town. 
 
Clouds are drifting across the moon, Cats are prowling on their beat 
Springs a girl from the streets at night, Diriy old town,dirty old town. 
 
I'm going to make me a good sharp axe, Shining steel,tempered in the fire, 
I'll chop you down like an old dead tree, Dirty old town,dirty old town 
 
I met my love by the gas works wall, Dreamed a dream by the old canal, 
Kissed my girl by the fact'ry wall, Dirty old town, dirty old town... 

114. Donna Donna

On a wagon bound for market, There's a calf with a mournful eye.
High above him there's a swallow Winging swiftly through the sky.
How the winds are laughing, They laugh with all their might,
Laugh and laugh the whole day through, And half the summer's night.
Dona, dona, dona, donna; Dona, dona, dona, do.
Dona, dona, dona, donna; Dona, dona, dona, do.
 
"Stop complaining," said the farmer, "Who told you a calf to be, 
Why don't you have wings to fly with, Like the swallow so proud and free?" 
How the winds are laughing, They laugh with all their might, 
Laugh and laugh the whole day through, And half the summer's night. 
Dona, dona, dona, donna; Dona, dona, dona, do. 
Dona, dona, dona, donna; Dona, dona, dona, do. 
 
Calves are easily bound and slaughtered, Never knowing the reason why, 
But whoever treasures freedom, Like the swallow has learned to fly. 
How the winds are laughing, They laugh with all their might, 
Laugh and laugh the whole day through, And half the summer's night. 
Dona, dona, dona, donna; Dona, dona, dona, do. 
Dona, dona, dona, donna; Dona, dona, dona, do. 

115. Don't be Angry

Don't be angry with me darling if I fail to understand
All your little whims and wishes all the time.
Just remember that I'm dumb, I guess, like any foolish man.
And my head stays sort of foggy 'cause your mine.
 
Well, I recall the first time that I flirted with you, dear,
When I jokingly said come and be my bride.
Now the time has turned the pages,
It's the sweetest joke on earth:
That I have you here for ever by my side.
 
Maybe some day your gonna hurt me, I've been hurt in love before. 
Only God can know and time alone will tell. 
But in the mean time I'll keep loving you with all my heart and soul 
And pray God to let it last if it's his will. 
 
Don't be angry with me darling if I fail to understand 
All your little whims and wishes all the time. 
Just remember that I'm dumb, I guess, like any foolish man, 
And my head stays sort of foggy 'cause your mine.

Baby, do you understand me now, Sometimes I feel a little mad.
Well, don't you know that no-one alive can always be an angel, When things go wrong I seem to be bad!
'Cause I'm just a soul who's intentions are good: Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood.
If I seem edgy, I want you to know, That I never meant to take it out on you.
Life has it's problems and I've got my share, That's one thing I never meant to do, 'cause I love you!
 
Baby, don't you know I'm just human, And I’ve got thoughts like any other one.
And sometimes I feel myself alone regretting, Some foolish thing, some foolish thing I've done.
I'm just a soul who's intentions are good: Oh Lord please don't let me be misunderstood!
Oh lord, don’t let me be misunderstood
don’t let me be - don’t let me be misunderstood |: :|

117. Don't Look Back in Anger

 
Slip inside the eye of your mind
Don't you know you might find A better place to play / / / /
You said that you'd never been 
But all the things that you've seen are gonna fade away 
 
So I start a revolution from my bed
Cos you said the brains I had went to my head
Step outside, the summertime's in bloom
 
Stand up beside the fireplace
Take that look from off your face
Cos you ain't ever gonna burn my heart ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut
 
So Sally can wait, she knows it's too late as we´re walking on by / / / /
Her soul slides away, but don't look back in anger I heard you say
 
Take me to the place where you go 
Where nobody knows, if it's night or day 
Please don't put your life in the hands 
of a rock and roll band, who'll throw it all away 
 
So I start a revolution... 
So Sally can wait, ... 
So Sally can wait, ... 
 
So Sally can wait, ... 
My soul slides away
But don't look back in anger
Don't look back in anger!
I heard you say

118. Don't Think Twice, It's All Right

It ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe, if you don't know by now.
And it ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe, It'll never do, somehow.
When your rooster crows at the break of dawn,
Look out your window and I'll be gone.
You're the reason I'm travelling on, But, don't think twice, it's all right.
 
And it ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe, The light I never knowed.
And it ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe, I'm on the dark side of the road.
But I wish there were something you would do or say;
To try and make me change my mind and stay.
We never did too much talkin' anyway. Don't think twice, it's all right.
 
No it ain't no use in callin' out my name, gal, Like you never done before.
And it ain't no use in callin' out my name, gal, I can't hear you anymore.
I'm a-thinkin' and a-wonderin' Walking down the road,
I once loved a woman, a child I am told.
I give her my heart but she wanted my soul, Don't think twice, it's all right.
 
So lo-o-ong, honey babe, Where I'm bound, I can't tell.
Goodbye is too good a word, babe, So I'll just say, "fare thee well".
I ain't sayin' you treated me unkind,
You could have done better, but, I don't mind.
You just kinda wasted my precious time, Don't think twice, it's all right.

119. Don't Worry, Be Happy

Here's a little song I wrote, You might want to sing it note for note,
Don't worry, be happy.
In every life we have some trouble, But when you worry you make it double,
Don't worry, be happy. (Don't worry, be happy now.)
Don't worry, be happy. Don't worry, be happy.
 
Ain't got no place to lay your head, Somebody came and took your bed,
Don't worry, be happy.
The landlord say your rent is late, He may have to litigate,
Don't worry, be happy. (Look at me - I'm happy.)
Don't worry, be happy.
Here I give you my phone number. When you worry, call me,
Don't worry, be happy.
 
Ain't got no cash, ain't got no style Ain't got no gal to make you smile
Don't worry, be happy.
'Cause when you worry your face will frown
And that will bring everybody down, So
Don't worry, be happy. Don't worry, be happy now.
Don't worry, be happy. Don't worry, be happy.
Don't worry, be happy. Don't worry, be happy.
Don't worry, don't worry, don't do it. Be happy.
Put a smile on your face. Don't bring everybody down. 
Don't worry. It will soon pass, whatever it is. Don't worry, be happy.

120. Down On the Corner

Early in the evenin' just about supper time,
over by the courthouse, they're starting to unwind,
four kids on the corner, trying to bring you up,
Willy picks a tune out and he blows it on the harp.
Down on the corner, out in the street,
Willy and the Poorboys are playin' bring a nickel, tap your feet.
 
Rooster hits the washboard, and people just gotta smile, 
Blinky thumps the gut bass and solos for awhile. 
Poor-boy twangs the rhythm out on his Kalamazoo. 
And Willy goes in to a dance and doubles on Kazoo. 
Down on the corner, out in the street, 
Willy and the Poorboys are playin' bring a nickel, tap your feet. 
 
You don't need a penny just to hang around, 
but if you got a nickel won't you lay your money down. 
Over on the corner, there's a happy noise, 
people come from all around to watch the magic boy. 
Down on the corner, out in the street, 
Willy and the Poorboys are playin' bring a nickel, tap your feet.

121. Dream a Little Dream of me

Stars shining bright above you; Night breezes seem to whisper: I love you.
Birds singing in the sycamore tree: Dream a little dream of me!
 
Say: nighty night! and kiss me; Just hold me tight and tell me you miss me.
While I'm alone and blue as can be: Dream a little dream of me!
Stars fading, but I linger on, dear; Still craving your kiss.
I'm longing to linger till dawn, dear; Just saying this...
 
Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you; Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you. 
But in your dreams whatever they be: Dream a little dream of me! 
Stars fading, but I linger on, dear; Still craving your kiss. 
I'm longing to linger till dawn, dear; Just saying this... 
 
Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you; Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you. 
But in your dreams whatever they be: Dream a little dream of me! 

122. Drive My Car

Asked a girl what she wanted to be,
She said: baby, can't you see?
I want to be famous, a star on the screen,
But you can do something in between:
Baby you can drive my car!
Yes I'm gonna be a star
Baby you can drive my car,
And maybe I'll love you!
 
I told that girl that my prospects were good, 
And she said baby, it's understood; 
Working for peanuts is all very fine, 
But I can show you a better time: 
Baby you can drive my car! 
Yes I'm gonna be a star! 
Baby you can drive my car, 
And maybe I'll love you! 
Baby you can drive my car! 
Yes I'm gonna be a star! 
Baby you can drive my car, 
And maybe I'll love you! 
 
I told that girl that I could start right away 
And she said listen babe I've got something to say 
I got no car and it's breakin' my heart 
But I've got a driver and that's a start 
Baby you can drive my car! 
Yes I'm gonna be a star! 
Baby you can drive my car, 
And maybe I'll love you!

125. Eight Days A Week

Ooh, I need your love, babe, guess you know it's true.
Hope you need my love, babe, just like I need you.
Hold me, love me, hold me, love me;
Ain't got nothing but love, babe, eight days a week.
Eight days a week, I lo-o-ove you - Eight days a week, is not enough to show I care!
 
Love you every day, girl, always on my mind.

Eight days a week! - Eight days a week!
 

126. Eight Miles High

 
Eight miles high, and when you touch down:
You'll find that it's stranger than known.
Signs in the street that say where you're going
Are somewhere just being their own.
Nowhere is there to be found,
Among those afraid of losing their ground.
Mean grey town known for its sound:
In places, small places unbound.
 
Now the squares of moving storms:
Some laughing, some just shapeless forms.
Sidewalk scenes and black limousines:
Some living some standing alone.

127. Ein Schiff wird kommen

Ich bin ein Mädchen aus Piräus und liebe
Den Hafen die Schiffe und das Meer.
Ich lieb das Lachen der Matrosen und Küsse,
Die schmecken nach See, nach Salz und Teer.
 
Es lockt der Zauber von Piräus, drum stehe ich
Abend für Abend hier am Kai,
Und warte auf die fremden Schiffe aus Hongkong,
Aus Java, aus Chile und Shanghai.
Ein Schiff wird kommen und das bringt mit den einen,
Den ich so lieb wie keinen, und der mich glücklich macht.
Ein Schiff wird kommen und meinen Traum erfüllen,
Und meine Sehnsucht stillen, die Sehnsucht mancher Nacht.
 
Ich bin ein Mädchen aus Piräus und wenn eines 
Tages mein Herz ich mal verlier, 
Dann muß es einer sein vom Hafen, oh, 
So einen Burschen wünsch ich fürs Leben mir. 
 
Und später stehen meine Kinder dann Abend 
Für Abend genau wie ich am Kai. 
Und warten auf die fremden Schiffe aus Hongkong 
Aus Java, aus Chile und Shanghai. 
Ein Schiff wird kommen und das bringt mit den einen, 
Den ich so lieb wie keinen, und der mich glücklich macht. 
Ein Schiff wird kommen und meinen Traum erfüllen, 
Und meine Sehnsucht stillen, die Sehnsucht mancher Nacht. 

128. Einheitsfrontlied

Und weil der Mensch ein Mensch ist, drum braucht er was zum Essen bitte sehr!
Es macht ihn ein Geschwätz nicht satt, das schafft kein Essen her.
Drum links, zwei, drei! Drum links, zwei, drei, Wo dein Platz, Genosse ist!
Reih dich ein in die Arbeitereinheitsfront, weil du auch ein Arbeiter bist.
 
Und weil der Mensch ein Mensch ist, drum braucht er auch noch Kleider und Schuh. 
Es macht ihn ein Geschwätz nicht warm - und auch kein Trommeln dazu. 
Drum links, zwei, drei! Drum links, zwei, drei, Wo dein Platz, Genosse ist! 
Reih dich ein in die Arbeitereinheitsfront, weil du auch ein Arbeiter bist. 
 
Und weil der Mensch ein Mensch ist, hat er Stiefel im Gesicht nicht gern. 
Er will unter sich keine Sklaven sehen - und über sich keine Herren. 
Drum links, zwei, drei! Drum links, zwei, drei, Wo dein Platz, Genosse ist! 
Reih dich ein in die Arbeitereinheitsfront, weil du auch ein Arbeiter bist. 
 
Und weil der Prolet ein Prolet ist, drum wird ihn kein anderer befrein. 
Es kann die Befreiung der Arbeiter - nur das Werk der Arbeiter sein. 
Drum links, zwei, drei! Drum links, zwei, drei, Wo dein Platz, Genosse ist! 
Reih dich ein in die Arbeitereinheitsfront, weil du auch ein Arbeiter bist. 

129. Eleanor Rigby

Ah, look at all the lonely people!
Ah, look at all the lonely people!
 
Eleanor Rigby, Picks up the rice in a church where a wedding has been. Lives in a dream.
Waits at the window, Wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door. Who is is for?
All the lonely people, Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people, Where do they all belong?
 
Ah, look at all the lonely people! -
Ah, look at all the lonely people!
 
Father McKenzie, Writing the words of a sermon that no one will hear, No one comes near. 
Look at him working, Darning his socks in the night when there's nobody there, What does he care? 
All the lonely people, Where do they all come from? 
All the lonely people, Where do they all belong? 
 
Ah, look at all the lonely people! - Ah, look at all the lonely people! 
 
Eleanor Rigby, Died in the church and was buried along with her name, Nobody came. 
Father McKenzie, Wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave, No one was saved. 
All the lonely people, Where do they all come from? 
All the lonely people, Where do they all belong? 
 
Ah, look at all the lonely people! - Ah, look at all the lonely people! 

130. End Of The Line

Well it's all right, riding around in the breeze.
Well it's all right if you live the life you please.
Well it's all right, doing the best you can.
Well it's all right, as long as you lend a hand.
 
You can sit around and wait for the phone to ring, (at the end of the line)
Waiting for someone to tell you everything. (at the end of the line)
Sit around and wonder what tomorrow will bring, (at the end of the line) - Maybe a diamond ring.
Well it's all right, even if they say you're wrong.
Well it's all right, sometimes you gotta be strong.
Well it's all right, as long as you got somewhere to lay.
Well it's all right, everyday is judgement day.
 
Maybe somewhere down the road aways (at the end of the line)
You'll think of me and wonder where I am these days. (at the end of the line)
Maybe somewhere down the road when somebody plays (at the end of the line) - Purple haze.
Well it's all right, even when push comes to shove.
Well it's all right, if you got someone to love.
Well it's all right, everything'll work out fine.
Well it's all right, we're going to the end of the line.
 
Don't have to be ashamed of the car I drive, (at the end of the line)
I'm just glad to be here happy to be alive. (at the end of the line)
It don't matter if you're by my side, (at the end of the line) - I'm satisfied.
Well it's all right, even if you're old and gray. - Well it's all right, you still got something to say.
Well it's all right, remember to live and let live. - Well it's all right, the best you can do is forgive.
Well it's all right, riding around in the breeze. - Well it's all right if you live the life you please.
Well it's all right, even if the sun don't shine. - Well it's all right, we're going to the end of the line.

131. Er gehört zu mir

Er gehört zu mir wie mein Name an der Tür! Und ich weiss, er bleibt hier.
Nie vergess' ich unsern ersten Tag! (Nanana na nana)
Denn ich fühlte gleich, dass er mich mag! (Nanana na nana)
Ist es wahre Liebe (uhu-uu) die nie mehr vergeht? (uhu-uu)
Oder wird die Liebe vom Winde verweht?
 
Er gehört zu mir wie mein Name an der Tür! Und ich weiss er bleibt hier.
Alles fangen wir gemeinsam an! (Nanana nana na)
Doch vergess' ich nie, wie man allein sein kann. (Nanana nana na)
Steht es in den Sternen (uhu-uu) was die Zukunft bringt? (uhu-uu)
Oder muss ich lernen, dass alles zerbricht?
 
Nein ich hab es ihm nie leicht gemacht, (Nanana nana na)
Mehr als einmal hab ich mich gefragt, (Nanana nana na)
Ist es wahre Liebe (oho-ho) die nie mehr vergeht? (oho-ho)
Oder wir die Liebe vom Winde verweht?
Er gehört zu mir, für immer zu mir. (Oho) Er gehört zu mir, für immer zu mir.
Er gehört zu mir wie mein Name an der Tür! Und ich weiß, er bleibt hier - er gehört zu mir!

132. Eve of Destruction

/ / / / / / / / / /
The eastern world it is explodin', violence flarin', bullets loadin'.
You're old enough to kill but not for votin',
You don't believe in war, what's that gun you're totin',
And even the Jordan river has bodies floatin',
But you tell me over and over and over again my friend,
ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction. / / / / / / / / / /
 
Don't you understand, what I'm trying to say? Can't you see the fear that I'm feeling today? 
If the button is pushed, there's no running away, 
There'll be noone to save with the world in a grave, 
take a look around you, boy, it's bound to scare you, boy: 
But you tell me over and over and over again my friend, 
Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction. 
 
Yeah, my blood's so mad, feels like coagulatin', I'm sittin' here, just contemplatin'. 
I can't twist the truth, it knows no regulation, Handful of Senators don't pass legislation. 
And marches alone can't bring integration, when human respect is disintegratin', 
this whole crazy world is just too frustratin': 
And you tell me over and over and over again my friend, 
Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction. 
 
Think of all the hate there is in Red China! Then take a look around to Selma, Alabama! 
Ah, you may leave here, for four days in space, But when you return, it's the same old place. 
The poundin' of the drums, the pride and disgrace, 
You can bury your dead, but don't leave a trace. 
Hate your next-door-neighbour, but don't forget to say grace: 
And you tell me over and over and over again my friend, 
Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction. 

133. Far Far Away

I've seen the yellow lights go down the Mississippi
I've seen the bridges of the world and they are for real
I've had a red light off the wrist without me even getting kissed,
it still seems so unreal.
 
I've seen the morning in the mountains of Alaska, 
I've seen the sunset in the East and in the West, 
I've sang the glory that was Rome and passed the 'Hound Dog' singer's home, 
It still seems for the best. 
And I'm far, far away with my head up in the clouds,
and I'm far, far away with my feet down in the crowds,
letting loose around the world, but the call of home is loud, still as loud.
 
I've seen the Paris lights from high upon Montmartre 
and felt the silence hanging low in No Man's land, 
and though those Spanish nights were fine, it wasn't only from the wine, 
It still seems all in hand: 
And I'm far, far away with my head up in the clouds, 
And I'm far, far away with my feet down in the crowds, 
letting loose around the world, but the call of home is loud, still as loud. 
 
I've seen the yellow lights go down the Mississippi 
The grand Bahama island stories carry on, 
And though those alligator smiles, stay in your memory for a while 
There still seems more to come: 
And I'm far, far away ... 
 
And I'm far, far away ... 

134. Fare Thee Well, Miss Carousel

Well, the drunken clown still hanging 'round, But it's plain the laughters all died down;
The tears you tried so hard to hide are flowing.
And a blind man with his knife in hand Has convinced himself that he understands -
I wish him well, Miss Carousel, but I gotta be a going.
Won't you come and get me when You're sure that you don't need me then
I'll stand outside your window - And I proudly call your name!
 
Well the lady's been told that all her gold Is worth so much, she can't be sold;
No time to weep, she'll later sleep tomorrow.
When she carries her face to the market place And bets it on the open enrage -
She can ring her bells, Miss Carousel, but the singing brings me sorrow.
Won't you come... 
 
Well it's always done, every mothers sun Is surely grown, and never run;
So they fight with all their might inside them.
When the battles been fought 'n they've all been taught That the trick is just not being caught;
Will you give 'em hell, Miss Carousel, When they're begging you to hide them.
Won't you come and get me... 
 
When they need a rose, your eyes felt closed; You clamped your fingers 'round your nose -
Would you say, that's anyway to judge him.
Well you haven't got the authority To kill him in the first degree -
But would you feel compelled, Miss Carousel, If you had something to regret in.
On a velvet beach far beneath the reach Of those who come to pry and preach,
The natural man that tried to stand is falling.
Well how long will it be before he sees: You own his legs but his mind is free!
Only you can tell, Miss Carousel, How long will he be crawling.
Won't you come and get me... 
 
All the castle walls grown so tall, Seems there ain't no hope at all -
To reach the top even though you stopped your breathin'.
But I ain't gonna try to make you cry, The teardrops couldn't find your eye,
It's all been swell, Miss Carousel, the time has come for leaving!
Won't you come and get me when... 

135. Father and Son

It's not time to make a change, just relax, take it easy
you're still young, that's your fault,
there's so much you have to know
Find a girl, settle down, if you want, you can marry
Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy
 
I was once like you are now, and I know that it's not easy
to be calm when you've found something going on
But take your time, think a lot,
think of everything you've got
for you will still be here tomorrow,
but your dreams may not
How can I try to explain,
when I do he turns away again
It's always been the same, same old story.
From the moment I could talk, I was ordered to listen
now there's a way and I know that I have to go away.
I know I have to go
It's not time to make a change, just relax, take it slowly
you're still young, that's your fault,
there's so much you have to go through
Find a girl, settle down, if you want, you can marry
Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy
All the times that I've tried keeping
all the things I knew inside
It's hard but it's harder to ignore it
If they were right, I'd agree,
but it's them they know not me
now there's a way and I know that I have to go away.
I know I have to go

136. Feelin' Groovy

Slow down, you move too fast.
You got to make the morning last.
Just - Kickin' down the cobble stones,
Lookin' for fun and feelin' groovy.
Ba-Da-Da Da-Da Da-Da - Feelin' groovy
 
Hello lamppost, what' you knowin'.
I've come to watch your flowers growing.
Ain't you got no rhymes for me?
Do-od Doo-Doo - Feelin' groovy
Ba-Da-Da Ba-Da Da-Da - Feelin' groovy
 
I got no deeds to do, no promises to keep.
I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep.
Let the morning time drop all it's petals on me.
Life, I love you. All is groovy.
Ba-Da- Da-Da Ba-Da Da-Da... 

137. Fever

Never know how much I love you, Never know how much I care.
When you put your arms around me I get a fever that's so hard to bear.
You give me fever! When you kiss me;
Fever! When you hold me tight!
Fever - In the mornin' - Fever all through the night.
 
Sun lights up the day time, Moon lights up the night. 
I light up when you call my name And you know I'm gonna treat you right. 
You give me fever! When you kiss me; 
Fever! When you hold me tight! 
Fever - In the mornin' - Fever all through the night. 
 
Everybody's got the fever - That is somethin' you all know. 
Fever isn't such a new thing - Fever started long ago. 
 
Romeo loved Juliet - Juliet, she felt the same. 
When he put his arms around her - He said: Julie, baby, your my flame! 
Thou giveth fever - When we kisseth. 
Fever! with thy flaming youth. 
Fever - I'm a fire - Fever, yeah, I burn for sooth. 
 
Captain Smith and Pocahontas - Had a very mad affair. 
When her daddy tried to kill him - She said: Daddy, oh don't you dare! 
He gives me fever - With his kisses; 
Fever! When he holds me tight. 
Fever - I'm his misses - Daddy won't you treat him right. 
 
Now you've listened to my story - Here's the point that I have made: 
Chicks were born to give you fever - Be it fahrenheit or centigrade. 
They give you fever - When you kiss them; 
Fever! If you live you learn. 
Fever - Till you sizzle - But what a lovely way to burn. 

138. Fields of Gold

You'll remember me when the west wind moves - upon the fields of barley,
You'll forget the sun in his jealous sky - as we walk in fields of gold.
 
So she took her love for to gaze awhile - upon the fields of barley.
In his arms she fell as her hair came down - among the fields of gold.
 
Will you stay with me, will you be my love - Among the fields of barley?
We'll forget the sun in his jealous sky - as we walk in fields of gold!
 
See the west wind move like a lover so - upon the fields of barley.
Feel her body rise when you kiss her mouth - among the fields of gold.
I never make promises lightly, and there have been some that I've broken,
But I swear in the days still left we'll walk in fields of gold.
We'll walk in fields of gold

We'll walk in fields of gold.
Many years have passed since those summer days among the fields of barley.
See the children run as the sun goes down among the fields of gold.
 
You'll remember me when the west wind moves upon the fields of barley.
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky when we walked in fields of gold.
When we walked in fields of gold.
When we walked in fields of gold.
When we walked in fields of gold.

139. Fifty Ways to Leave Your Lover

"The problem is all inside your head," she said to me:
"The answer is easy if you take it logic'lly.
I'd like to help you in your struggle to be free;
there must be fifty ways to leave your lover."
 
She said, "It's really not my habit to intrude;
Furthermore I hope my meaning won't be lost or misconstrued.
But I repeat myself at the risk of being crude:
There must be fifty ways to leave your lover."
Fifty ways to leave your lover."
Just slip out the back, Jack.- Make a new plan, Stan;
You don't need to be coy, Roy, - just get yourself free.
Hop on the bus, Gus; - You don't need to discuss much;
Just drop off the key, Lee. - and get yourself free.
 
Just slip out the back, Jack.- Make a new plan, Stan; 
You don't need to be coy, Roy, - You just listen to me. 
Hop on the bus, Gus; - You don't need to discuss much; 
Just drop off the key, Lee. - And get yourself free. 
 
She said, "It grieves me now to see you in such pain;
I wish there was somethin' I could do to make you smile again."
I said, "I appreciate that, and would you please explain about the fifty ways?"
 
She said, "Why don't we both just sleep on it tonight;
I believe in the morning you'll begin to see the light."
And then she kissed me and I realized she probably was right; there must be
fifty ways to leave your lover, fifty ways to leave your lover."
Just slip out the back, Jack.- Make a new plan, Stan; 
You don't need to be coy, Roy, - just get yourself free. 
Hop on the bus, Gus; - You don't need to discuss much;

140. First we Take Manhattan

They sentenced me to twenty years of boredom,
For trying to change the system from within.
I'm coming now I'm coming to reward them:
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin.
 
I'm guided by a signal in the heavens. I'm guided by this birthmark on my skin. 
I'm guided by the beauty of our weapons: First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin. 
I'd really like to live beside you, baby.
I love your body and your spirit and your clothes,
But you see that line there moving through the station.
I told you - I told you - I told you I was one of those.
 
You loved me as a loser but now you're worried that I just might win. 
You know the way to stop me but you don't have the discipline. 
How many nights I prayed for this: to let my work begin: 
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin. 
 
I don't like your fashion business, mister. I don't like these drugs that keep you thin. 
I don't like what happened to your sister: First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin. 
I'd really like to live beside you, baby. 
I love your body and your spirit and your clothes. 
But you see that line there moving through the station: 
I told you - I told you - I told you I was one of those. 
And I thank you for those items that you sent me. The monkey and the plywood violin. 
I practiced every night and now I'm ready: First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin. 
 
Remember me, I used to live for music. Remember me, I brought your groceries in. 
It's Father's Day and everybody's wounded: First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin. 

141. Five Hundred Miles

If you miss the train I'm on, you will know that I am gone.
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles.
A hundred miles, a hundred miles, a hundred miles, a hundred miles,
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles.
 
Lord I'm one, Lord I'm two, Lord I'm three, Lord I'm four, 
Lord I'm five hundred miles away from home. 
Away from home, away from home, away from home, away from home, 
Lord I'm five hundred miles away from home. 
 
Not a shirt on my back, not a penny to my name, 
Lord I can't go back home this a way. 
This a way, this a way, this a way, this a way, 
Lord I can't go back home this a way. 
 
If you miss the train I'm on, you will know that I am gone. 
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles. 
A hundred miles, a hundred miles, a hundred miles, a hundred miles, 
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles. 

142. Fly me to the Moon - In Other Words

Fly me to the moon and let me play among the stars,
Let me see what spring is like on Jupiter and Mars.
In other words: "Hold my hand!" In other words: "Darling kiss me!"
 
Fill my heart with song, and let me sing for evermore,
You are all I long for, all I worship and adore.
In other words: "Please be true!" In other words: "I love You!"
 
Fly me to the moon and let me play among the stars,
Let me see what spring is like on Jupiter and Mars.
In other words: "Hold my hand!" In other words: "Darling kiss me!"
 
Fill my heart with song, and let me sing for evermore,
You are all I long for, all I worship and adore.
In other words: "Please be true!" In other words: "I love You."

143. Folsom Prison Blues

I hear the train a-comin'; it's rollin' 'round the bend,
And I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when,
I'm stuck at Folsom Prison and time keeps draggin' on.
But that train keeps a-rollin' on down to San Antone.
 
When I was just a baby my momma told me: "Son,
Always be a good boy; don't ever play with guns."
But I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die.
When I hear that whistle blowin', I hang my head and cry.
 
I bet there's rich folk eatin' in a fancy dining car.
They're prob'ly drinkin' coffee and smokin' big cigars.
But I know I had it comin', I know I can't be free.
But those people keep a-movin', and that's what tortures me.
 
Well if they freed me from this prison, if that railroad train was mine,
I bet I'd move it all a little farther down the line.
Far from Folsom Prison, that's where I want to stay.
And I'd let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away.

144. For no One

Your day breaks, your mind aches, You find that all her words
Of kindness linger on - When she no longer needs you.
 
She wakes up, she makes up, She takes her time
and doesn't feel she has to hurry - She no longer needs you.
And in her eyes you see nothing -
No sign of love behind the tears - Cried for no one.
A love that should have lasted years.
 
You want her, you need her, And yet you don't believe her
When she said her love is dead - You think she needs you...
And in her eyes you see nothing -
No sign of love behind the tears - Cried for no one.
A love that should have lasted years.
 
You stay home, she goes out, She says that long ago
She knew someone but now he's gone - She doesn't need him.
 
Your day breaks, your mind aches, There will be time
When all the things she said will fill your head - you won't forget her.
And in her eyes you see nothing -
No sign of love behind the tears - Cried for no one.
A love that should have lasted years.

145. For Your Love

(For your love)
I'd give you everything and more and that's for sure. (For your love)
I'd bring you diamond rings and things right to your door. (For your love)
To thrill you with delight, I'd give you diamonds bright!
Double takes I will excite, make you dream of me at night!
For your loo-oo-oo-oove - For your loo-oo-oo-oove
For your loo-oo-oo-oove
 
For your love, for your love I would give the stars above!
For your love, for your love I would give you all I could.
 
(For your love)
I'd give the moon if it were mine to give (For your love)
I'd give the stars and the sun for I live (For your love)
For your loo-oo-oo-oove - For your loo-oo-oo-oove 
For your loo-oo-oo-oove 

146. Forever Young

May God bless and keep you always;
May your wishes all come true;
May you always do for others,
And let others do for you.
 
May you build a ladder to the stars, 
And climb on every rung;
May you stay - forever young.
Forever young, forever young.
May you stay - forever young.
 
May you grow up to be righteous; 
May you grow up to be true;
May you always know the truth,
And see the light surrounding you.
 
May you always be courageous; 
Stand upright and be strong,
And may you stay - forever young.
Forever young, forever young.
May you stay - forever young.
 
May your hands always be busy; 
May your feet always be swift;
May you have a strong foundation,
When the winds of changes shift.
 
May your heart always be joyful; 
May your song always be sung,
And may you stay - forever young
Forever young, forever young.
May you stay - forever young.

147. Four Strong Winds

 
 
Four strong winds that blow lonely, seven seas that run high, 
All these things that won't change, come what may. 
Well our good times all are gone, and I'm bound for movin' on, 
I'll look for you if I'm ever back this way. 
 
Think I'll go down to Alberta, weather's good there in the fall, 
Got some friends that I could go to workin' for. 
Still I wish you'd change your mind, if I asked you one more time, 
But we've been through that a hundred times or more. 
 
Four strong winds that blow lonely, seven seas that run high, 
All these things that won't change, come what may. 
Well our good times all are gone, and I'm bound for movin' on, 
I'll look for you if I'm ever back this way. 
 
If I get there 'fore the snow flies, and if things are goin' good, 
You could meet me if I sent you down the fare. 
But by then it would be winter, not much for you to do, 
And those winds sure blow cold, way out there. 
 
Four strong winds that blow lonely, seven seas that run high, 
All these things that won't change, come what may. 
Well our good times all are gone, and I'm bound for movin' on, 
I'll look for you if I'm ever back this way. 

148. Fox On The Run

She walked through the corn leading down to the river,
Her hair shone like gold in the hot morning sun.
She took all the love that a poor boy could give her,
And left me to die like the fox on the run.
Like the fox (like the fox, like the fox) on the run.
 
Everybody knows the reason for the fall:
When woman tempted man down in paradise's hall.
This woman tempted me, all yes, then took me for a ride;
But like the weary fox I need a place to hide!
She walked through the corn leading down to the river,
Her hair shone like gold in the hot morning sun.
She took all the love that a poor boy could give her,
And left me to die like the fox on the run.
Like the fox (like the fox, like the fox) on the run.
 
Come take a glass of wine and fortify your soul.
We'll talk about the world and friends we used to know.
I'll illustrate, a girl who put me on the floor.
The game is nearly up, the hounds are at my door!
I saw her walk through the corn leading down to the river,
Her hair shone like gold in the hot morning sun.
She took all the love that a poor boy could give her,
And left me to die like the fox on the run.
 
You know - she walked through the corn leading down to the river,
Her hair shone like gold in the hot morning sun.
She took all the love that a poor boy could give her,
And Left me to die
Like the fox (like the fox, like the fox) on the run.

149. Free Fallin'

 
(Intro) / / /
 
She's a good girl, loves her mama;
Loves Jesus and America too.
She's a good girl, crazy 'bout Elvis;
Loves horses and her boy - friend too.
 
It's a long day livin' in Reseda.
There's a freeway runnin' through the yard.
And i'm a bad boy, cause I don't even miss her
I'm a bad boy for breakin' her heart
Now I'm free-e-e-e - free fall-i-i-in'!
Yeah I'm free-e-e-e - free fall-i-i-in'!
 
All the vampires walkin' through the valley 
Move west down Ventura Boulevard. 
All the bad boys are standing in the shadows 
And the good girls are home with broken hearts. 
Now I'm free - free fall-in'! 
Yeah I'm free - free fall-in'! 
 
I wanna glide down over Mulholland. 
I wanna write her name in the sky. 
Gonna free fall out into nothin'. 
Gonna leave this world for a while. 
And I'm free - free fallin - now I'm, free fallin. 
Free fall-in' - free fallin - now I'm, free fallin. 
Yeah I'm free - free fallin - now I'm, free fallin. 
Free fall-in' - free fallin - now I'm, free fallin. 

150. Friday On My Mind

Monday morning feels so bad - Everybody seems to nag me
Comin' Tuesday I feel better - Even my old man looks good
Wednesday goes too slow - Thursday just don't go
I have Friday on my mind
 
I'm gonna have fun in the city
Be with my girl she's so pretty
She looks fine tonight - She is out of sight to me
(Tonight) I'll spend my bread - (Tonight) I'll lose my head
(Tonight) I've got to get - Toni-i-ight
Monday I've got Friday on my mind
 
Do the night-day grind once more - I know of nothing else that bores me 
More than working for the rich man - Hey I'll change that scene one day 
Today I might be mad - Tomorrow I'll be glad 
I'll have Friday on my mind 

151. Friend Of The Devil

I lit out from Reno I was trailed by twenty hounds.
Didn't get to sleep that night 'til the morning came around.
Set out running but I take my time - A friend of the devil is a friend of mine.
If I get home before day light - I just might get some sleep tonight.
 
Ran into the devil, babe, he loaned me twenty bills. 
Spent the night in Utah in a cave up in the hills. 
Set out running but I take my time - A friend of the devil is a friend of mine. 
If I get home before day light - I just might get some sleep tonight. 
 
Ran down to the levee but the devil caught me there; 
Took my twenty dollar bill and vanished in the air. 
Set out running but I take my time - A friend of the devil is a friend of mine. 
If I get home before day light - I just might get some sleep tonight. 
 
Got two reasons why I cry away each lonely night:
The first one's named Sweet Anne Marie and she's my heart's delight!
Second one is prison, babe, the sheriff's on my trail!
And if he catches up with me I'll spend my life in jail!
 
Got a wife in Chino, babe, and one in Cherokee, 
First one says she's got my child but it don't look like me. 
Set out running but I take my time - A friend of the devil is a friend of mine. 
If I get home before day light - I just might get some sleep tonight. 
Got two reasons... 
 
Got a wife in Chino... 
...I just might get some sleep tonight. 

152. From Hank to Hendrix

From Hank to Hendrix, I walked these streets with you.
Here I am with this old guitar, doing what I do.
I always expected that you would see me through.
I never believed in much, but I believed in you.
Can we get it together, can we still stand side by side.
Can we make it last, like a musical ride?
 
From Marilyn to Madonna, I always loved your smile,
Now we're headed for the big divorce, California style.
I found myself singin' like a long lost friend
The same thing that makes you live can kill you in the end.
Can we get it together, can we still stand side by side.
Can we make it last, like a musical ride?
Sometimes it's distorted not clear to you.
Sometimes the beauty of love just comes ringin' through.
New glass in the window, new leaf on the tree,
new distance between us you and me.
Can we get it together, can we still stand side by side.
Can we make it last, like a musical ride?

153. Further On Up The Road

Where the road is dark And the seed is sewed;
Where the gun is cocked As the bullet's cold.
Where the miles are marked In the blood and the gold:
And I'll meet you further on up the road.
 
Got on my dead man suit And my smilin' skull ring;
My lucky graveyard boots And a song to sing.
I got a song to sing That keeps me out of the cold;
And I'll meet you further on up the road.
Further on up the road - Further on up the road.
Where the way is dark - And the night is cold.
One sunny mornin' - We'll rise I know:
And I'll meet you further on up the road!
 
Now I've been out in the desert Just doin' my time.
Searchin' through the dust Lookin' for a sign.
If there's a light up ahead Well brother I don't know;
But I've got this fever burnin' in my soul.
Further on up the road - Further on up the road.
Where the way is dark - And the night is cold.
One sunny mornin' - We'll rise I know:
And I'll meet you further on up the road!

154. Games People Play

La-da da da da da da da La-da da da da da de
La-da da da da da La-da da da
 
Oh, the games people play, now, every night and every day, now,
Never meaning what they say now, never saying what they mean.
 
While they wile away the hours in their ivory towers,
Till they're covered up with flowers, In the back of a black limousine.
La-da da da da da da da; La-da da da da da de;
Talking 'bout you and me, and the games people play, now!
 
Oh, we make one another cry, break a heart then we say goodbye, 
Cross our hearts and we hope to die, that the other was to blame. 
 
Neither one will ever give in, so we gaze at our eight by ten; 
Thinking 'bout the things that might have been, it's a dirty rotten shame. 
La-da da da da da da da; La-da da da da da de; 
Talking 'bout you and me, and the games people play, now! 
People walking up to you, singing glory halleluja, 
And they're tryin to sock it to ya, in the name of the Lord. 
 
They're gonna teach you how to meditate, read your horoscope, cheat your faith, 
And further more to hell with hate, come on and get on board. 
La-da da da da da da da; La-da da da da da de; 
Talking 'bout you and me, and the games people play, now! 
 
Look around tell me what you see, what's happening to you and me, 
God grant me the serenity, to just remember who I am, woah! 
 
Cause you've given up your sanity, for your pride and your vanity, 
Turn your back on humanity, and you don't give a da da da da da. 
La-da da da da da da da; La-da da da da da de; 
Talking 'bout you and me, and the games people play, now! 
La-da da da da... 

155. Geld

Geld macht nicht glücklich, es beruhigt nur die Nerven
Und man muß es schon besitzen, um's zum Fenster rauszuwerfen.
Und wenn ich das große Los zieh und's geht nicht gleich alles drauf,
mach ich an der nächsten Ecke 'ne Lottobude auf!
Geld! (Manche haben's, manche haben's nicht.)
Gib mir 'n bißchen Geld! (Aber ich werd einfach sauer, wenn ich kein's krieg.)
 
Vor den Leuten, die Geld sammeln, kann man eigentlich nur warnen, 
denn noch nicht mal Samt und Seide können ihre Pferdefüße tarnen. 
Und wenn ich das große Los zieh, geb' ich sicher alles aus, 
für Platin, Gold und Aktien und'n supergroßes Haus. (mit Swimmingpool) 
Geld! ( Mache haben's) 
Gib mir 'n bißchen Geld! (manche haben's nicht) 
Ich brauch Geld! (Aber ich werd' einfach sauer) 
Jede Menge Geld! (wenn ich kein's krieg) 
 
Die Moral von der Geschichte soll die Reichen jetzt erreichen, 
vielleicht lässt sich ja der eine oder andere mal erweichen. 
Denn mein Bankdirektor hungert, die Gerichtsvollzieher weinen, 
vielleicht schickt mir ja ein netter Millionär mal ein paar Scheine. (Ich sammle nämlich Scheine.) 
Geld! ( Mache haben's) 
Gib mir 'n bißchen Geld! (manche haben's nicht) 
Ich brauch Geld! (Aber ich werd' einfach sauer) 
Jede Menge Geld! (wenn ich kein's krieg) 
 
(Mache haben's) 
(manche haben's nicht) 
(Aber ich werd' einfach sauer) 
(wenn ich kein's krieg) 
 
Geld macht nicht glücklich, es beruhigt nur die Nerven 
und man muß es schon besitzen, um's zum Fenster rauszuwerfen. 
Und man kann bekanntlich alles außer Liebe dafür kaufen, 
doch der beste Weg von allen is'es einfach zu versaufen. 
Geld! ( Mache haben's) 
Gib mir 'n bißchen Geld! (manche haben's nicht) 
Ich brauch Geld! (Aber ich werd' einfach sauer) 
Gib mir 'n bisschen Menge Geld! (wenn ich kein's krieg) 
 
Geld! ( Mache haben's) 
Gib mir 'n bißchen Geld! (manche haben's nicht) 
Ich brauch Geld! (Aber ich werd' einfach sauer)

156. Get thee behind me, Satan

My Boss comes up to me with a five-dollar bill,
Says, "Get you some whiskey, boy, and drink your fill."
Get thee behind me, Satan, travel on down the line.
I am a union man, gonna leave you behind.
 
A red-headed woman took me out to dine,

Get thee behind me, Satan, travel on down the line. 
I am a union man, gonna leave you behind.

/ / / / / / / / / / / /
 
I live in an apparmtent on the ninety-ninth floor of my block
I sit at home lookin' out my window imagining the world has stopped
Then in flies a guy who's all dressed up just like a Union Jack
He says "I'd 've won five pounds if I had this kind of detergent pack"
Said I "Hey you get off of my cloud
Hey you get off of my cloud
Hey you get off of my cloud
Don't hang around, 'cause two's a crowd on my cloud!
 
The telephone is ringing I say "Hi who's there on the line?" 
A voice says "Hi hello how are you?" "Well I guess I am doin' fine!" 
He says "It's three a.m. there's too much noise don't you people want to go to bed? 
Just cause you feel so good, do you have to drive me out of my head?" 
 
I was sick and tired, fed up with things and decided to take a drive down town. 
It was so very quiet and peaceful, there was nobody, not a soul around. 
I laid myself down, I was so tired and I started to dream. 
In the morning the parking tickets were just like flags stuck on my windscreen! 

158. Ghost Riders In The Sky

An old cowboy went ridin' out one dark and windy day.
Upon a ridge he rested as he went along his way.
When all at once a mighty herd of red eyed cows he saw:
Plowin' through the ragged skies, and up a cloudy draw.
 
Their brands were still on fire and their hoofs were made of steel.
Their horns were black and shiny and their hot breath he could feel.
A bolt of fear went through him as they thundered through the sky;
For he saw the riders comin' hard, and he heard their mournful cry:
Yippie-I-ay, yippie-I-oh -- The ghost riders in the sky!
Their faces gaunt, their eyes were blurred, their shirts all soaked with sweat.
He's ridin' hard to catch that herd, but he ain't caught 'em yet'.
'Cause they got to ride forever on that range up in the sky,
On horses snorting fire as they ride on hear their cry!
 
As the riders loped on by him he heard one call his name:
"If you wanna to save your soul from hell a-ridin' on our range,
Then cowboy change your ways today, or with us you will ride,
Tryin' to catch the devil's herd across these endless skies!"
Yippie-I-ay, yippie-I-oh - Ghost riders in the sky (3x)... 

159. Girl

Is there anybody going to listen to my story
all about the girl who came to stay?
 
She's the kind of girl you want so much it makes you sorry
Still, you don't regret a single day.
Ah gi-irl, gi-irl.
 
When I think of all the times I've tried so hard to leave her, 
She will turn to me and start to cry. 
And she promises the earth to me and I believe her, 
after all this time I don't know why. 
Ah, girl, girl. 
She's the kind of girl who puts you down when friends are there, you feel a fool.
When you say she's looking good she acts as if it's understood. She's coo-oo-ool!
gi-irl, gi-irl.
 
Was she told when she was young that pain would lead to pleasure? 
Did she understand it when they said: 
that a man must break his back to earn his day of leisure, 
Will she still believe it when he's dead? 
Ah girl, girl, girl! 

160. Give My Lve to Rose

I found him by the railroad track this morning
I could see that he was nearly dead
I knelt down beside him and I listened
Just to hear the words the dying fellow said
He said they let me out of prison down in Frisco
For ten long years I've paid for what I've done
I was trying to get back to Louisiana
To see my Rose and get to know my son
Give my love to Rose please won't you mister
Take her all my money, tell her to buy some pretty clothes
Tell my boy his daddy's so proud of him
And don't forget to give my love to Rose
 
Tell them I said thanks for waiting for me - Tell my boy to help his mom at home
Tell my Rose to try to find another - For it ain't right that she should live alone
Mister here's a bag with all my money - It won't last them long the way it goes
God bless you for finding me this morning - And don't forget to give my love to Rose
Give my love to Rose please won't you mister
Take her all my money, tell her to buy some pretty clothes
Tell my boy his daddy's so proud of him
And don't forget to give my love to Rose

161. Go, Tell it on the Mountain

Go, tell it on the mountain, over the hills and ev'rywhere,
Go, tell it on the mountain, that Jesus Christ is born,
 
When I was a seeker, I sought both night an' day,
I asked the Lord to help me, and he showed me the way:
Go, tell it on the mountain, ... 
 
He made me a wathcman, upon the city wall; 
And if I am a Christian, I am the last of all. 
Go, tell it on the mountain, ... 
 

162. Goldwatch Blues

I went up for my interview on the fourth day of July.
Personnel man he questioned me until I nearly cried,
He made me fill in forms until I shook with fear:
About the colour of my toilet roll and if my cousin's queer.
Here's your goldwatch and the shackles for your chain,
And your piece of paper to say you left here sane.
And if you've got a son who wants a good career:
Just get him to sign on the dotted line and work for fifty years.
 
He asked me how many jobs I'd had before. 
He nearly had a heart attack when I answered: Four. 
Four jobs in twenty years, oh, this can never be! 
We only take on men who work until they die. 
Here's your goldwatch... 
 
He took me outside to where the gravestones stand in line. 
This is where we bury them in quick-stone and in lime! 
And if you come to work for us on this you must agree: 
That if you're going to die please do it during tea-break. 
Here's your goldwatch... 
 
This story that you heard you may think rather queer, 
But it is the truth you'll be surprised to hear. 
I did not want no job upon the board: 
I just wanted to take a broom and sweep the bloody floor. 
Here's your goldwatch... 

163. Good People

 
You win it's your show now, So what's it going to be?
Because people will tune in, How many train wrecks do we need to see?
Before we lose touch And we thought this was low.
Well it's bad, getting worse....
Where'd all the good people go? - I've been changing channels and I don't see them on the TV shows.
Where'd all the good people go? - We've got heaps and heaps of what we sow!
 
They got this and that with a rattle a tat. Testing, one, two, man whatcha gonna do?
Bad news misused, got too much to lose. Give me some truth now, who's side are we on?
Whatever you say, Turn on the boob tube, I'm in the mood to obey. So lead me astray, And by the way now...
Where'd all the good people go? - I've been changing channels and I don't see them on the TV shows.
Where'd all the good people go? - We've got heaps and heaps of what we sow!
 
 
Sitting around feeling far away, So far away but I can feel the debris, can you feel it?
You interrupt me from a friendly conversation To tell me how great it's all going to be.
You - might - notice some hesitation, Because it's important to you, it's not important to me.
But way down by the edge of your reason It's beginning to show and all I really want to know is...
Where'd all the good people go? - I've been changing channels and I don't see them on the TV shows.
Where'd all the good people go? - We've got heaps and heaps of what we sow!
 
They got this and that with a rattle a tat, Testing, one, two, man whatcha gonna do?
Bad news misused, give me some truth.
You got too much to lose, Whose side are we on today, anyway? (Where'd all the good people go?)
Okay whatever you say - Wrong and resolute but in the mood to obey
Station to station, desensitizing the nation (Where'd all the good people go?) - Going, going, gone

164. Green, Green Grass Of Home

The old home town looks the same as I step down from the train,
And there to meet me is my mama and papa.
Down the road I look and there runs Mary, hair of gold and lips like cherries,
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.
Yes, they'll all come to meet me, arms a-reaching, smiling sweetly;
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.
 
The old house is still standing, though the paint is cracked and dry,
And there's that old oak tree that I used to play on;
Down the lane I walk and with my sweet Mary, hair of gold an lips like cherries;
it's good to touch the green, green grass of home.
 
Then I awake and look around me, at the four gray walls that surround me; 
And I realize that I was only dreaming. 
For there's a guard and there's a sad old padre. Arm and arm we'll walk at daybreak, 
Again I'll touch the green, green grass of home. 
Yes, they'll all come to see me in the shade of that old oak tree;
As they lay me 'neath the green, green grass of home.

165. Greensleeves

Alas, my love, you do me wrong, To cast me off discourteously.
For I have loved you well and long, Delighting in your company.
Greensleeves was all my joy - Greensleeves was my delight,
Greensleeves was my heart of gold, And who but my lady greensleeves.
 
Your vows you've broken, like my heart, Oh, why did you so enrapture me? 
Now I remain in a world apart - But my heart remains in captivity. 
Greensleeves was all my joy - Greensleeves was my delight, 
Greensleeves was my heart of gold, And who but my lady greensleeves. 
 
I have been ready at your hand, To grant whatever you would crave, 
I have both wagered life and land, Your love and good-will for to have. 
Greensleeves was all my joy - Greensleeves was my delight, 
Greensleeves was my heart of gold, And who but my lady greensleeves. 
 
If you intend thus to disdain, It does the more enrapture me, 
And even so, I still remain - A lover in captivity. 
Greensleeves was all my joy - Greensleeves was my delight, 
Greensleeves was my heart of gold, And who but my lady greensleeves. 
 
My men were clothed all in green, And they did ever wait on thee; 
All this was gallant to be seen, And yet thou wouldst not love me. 
Greensleeves was all my joy - Greensleeves was my delight, 
Greensleeves was my heart of gold, And who but my lady greensleeves. 
 
Thou couldst desire no earthly thing, But still thou hadst it readily. 
Thy music still to play and sing; And yet thou wouldst not love me. 
Greensleeves was all my joy - Greensleeves was my delight, 
Greensleeves was my heart of gold, And who but my lady greensleeves. 
 
Well, I will pray to God on high, That thou my constancy mayst see, 
And that yet once before I die, Thou wilt vouchsafe to love me. 
Greensleeves was all my joy - Greensleeves was my delight, 
Greensleeves was my heart of gold, And who but my lady greensleeves. 
 
Ah, Greensleeves, now farewell, adieu, To God I pray to prosper thee, 
For I am still thy lover true, Come once again and love me. 
Greensleeves was all my joy - Greensleeves was my delight, 
Greensleeves was my heart of gold, And who but my lady greensleeves. 

166. Griechischer Wein

Es war schon dunkel als ich durch Vorstadtstraßen heimwärts ging.
Da war ein Wirtshaus aus dem das Licht noch auf den Gehsteig schien.
Ich hatte Zeit und mir war kalt, drum trat ich ein.
 
Da saßen Männer mit braunen Augen und mit schwarzem Haar,
und aus der Jukebox erklang Musik die fremd und südlich war.
Als man mich sah stand einer auf und lud mich ein.
Griechischer Wein - ist so wie das Blut der Erde,
Komm, schenk dir ein, und wenn ich dann traurig werde,
Liegt es daran, dass ich immer träume von daheim, du musst verzeih'n!
Griechischer Wein - und die altvertrauten Lieder,
Schenk nochmal ein, denn ich fühl' die Sehnsucht wieder,
In dieser Stadt werd' ich immer nur ein Fremder sein und allein.
 
Und dann erzählten sie mir von grünen Hügeln, Meer und Wind, 
von alten Häusern und jungen Frauen, die alleine sind, 
und von dem Kind, das seinen Vater noch nie sah. 
 
Sie sagten sich immer wieder: bald kommt er zurück. 
Und das Ersparte genügt zu Hause für ein kleines Glück. 
Und bald denkt keiner mehr daran, wie es hier war. 
Griechischer Wein - ist so wie das Blut der Erde, 
Komm, schenk dir ein, und wenn ich dann traurig werde, 
Liegt es daran, dass ich immer träume von daheim, du musst verzeih'n! 
Griechischer Wein - und die altvertrauten Lieder, 
Schenk nochmal ein, denn ich fühl' die Sehnsucht wieder, 
In dieser Stadt werd' ich immer nur ein Fremder sein und allein. 

167. Guantanamera

 
Yo soy un hombre sincero, de donde crece la palma
Yo soy un hombre sincero, de donde crece la palma
Y antes de morirme quiero echar mis versos de alma
Guantanamera, guajira guantanamera
Guantaname-e-era, guajira guantaname-e-ra
 
|: Mi verso es de un verde claro y de un carmin encendido :| 
Mi verso es un ciervo herido que busca en el monte amparo 
 
|: Con los pobres de la tierra quiero yo mi suerte echar :| 
El arroyo de la sierra me complace mas que el mar 
 

168. Gute Nacht, Freunde

Gute Nacht, Freunde, es wird Zeit für mich zu geh'n,
Was ich noch zu sagen hätte dauert eine Zigarette
Und ein letztes Glas im Steh'n.
 
Für den Tag, für die Nacht unter Eurem Dach habt Dank.
Für den Platz an Eurem Tisch, für jedes Glas, das ich trank.
Für den Teller, den Ihr mit zu den Euren stellt,
Als sei selbstverständlicher nichts auf der Welt.
Habt dank für die Zeit, die ich mit Euch verplaudert hab'
Und für Eure Geduld, wenn's mehr als eine Meinung gab
Dafür, daß Ihr nie fragt wann ich komme oder geh'
Und für die stets offene Tür, in der ich jetzt steh'
 
Für die Freiheit, die als steter Gast bei Euch wohnt
Habt Dank, daß Ihr nie fragt was es bringt, ob es lohnt
Vielleicht liegt es daran, daß man von draußen meint
Daß in Euren Fenstern das Licht wärmer scheint
Gute Nacht, Freunde, es wird Zeit für mich zu geh'n. 
Was ich noch zu sagen hätte dauert eine Zigarette 
Und ein letztes Glas im Steh'n.

169. Guten Tag Liebes Glück

Heute ist ein guter Tag um glücklich zu sein, Steht das Glück vor der Tür, dann lass ich es rein.
Guten Tag liebes Glück, schön dich zu sehen, Kaffee oder Tee?
Du willst doch nicht gleich wieder gehen? 
 
Ich bleib auch entspannt, halt dich nicht fest, denn ich weiß,
dass du bleibst, wenn man dich lässt. 
Was verschafft mir das Glück? Eins ist ja klar, frag mich nicht wie es mir geht,
denn du warst ja nicht da. 
Heute ist ein guter Tag um glücklich zu sein. Heute ist ein guter Tag um glücklich zu sein.
Deswegen, kommst du mir gelegen, wird auch langsam Zeit.
Nun sitzt das Glück schon so lang auf der Couch, Ich fühl mich sehr wohl,
doch dann denke ich: Autsch! 
Langsam kommt das schlechte Gewissen, Werden andere das Glück jetzt nicht vermissen?
Ich kann doch nicht sagen, es sollte nun gehen, Das Glück im Haus zu haben,
ist doch sehr schön. 
Ich bin ganz verblüfft von der Situation, Vielleicht bin ich verwöhnt,
doch was macht das schon, denn 
Heute ist ein guter Tag um glücklich zu sein. Heute ist ein guter Tag um glücklich zu sein.
Deswegen, kommst du mir gelegen.
 
Mir war das gar nicht klar doch jetzt sehe ich ein: Heute ist ein guter Tag um glücklich zu sein.
Wenns bliebe, mir zuliebe, wird auch langsam Zeit.
Heute ist ein guter Tag um glücklich zu sein. Heute ist ein guter Tag um glücklich zu sein.
Wird auch endlich Zeit!

170. Hallelujah

 
Well, I heard there was a secret chord, That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do ya?
Well, it goes like this: the fourth, the fifth, The minor fall and the major lift,
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
 
Well, your faith was strong, but you needed proof, You saw her bathing on the roof 
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya 
And she tied you to her kitchen chair, And she broke your throne and she cut your hair, 
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah 
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah 
 
Well, baby, I've been here before, I've seen this room and I've walked this floor 
You know, I used to live alone before I knew ya 
 
And I've seen your flag on the marble arch, And love is not a victory march, 
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah 
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah 
 
Well, there was a time when you let me know - What's really going on below, 
But now you never show that to me, do ya? 
 
But remember when I moved in you, And the holy dove was moving too 
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah 
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah 
 
Well, maybe there is a God above - But all I've ever learned from love, 
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya. 
 
And it's not a cry that you hear at night; It's not somebody who's seen the light, 
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah 
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, 
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah... 

171. Halt dich an deiner Liebe fest

Wenn niemand bei dir is' und du denkst, dass keiner dich sucht,
und du hast die Reise ins Jenseits vielleicht schon gebucht,
und all die Lügen geben Dir den Rest:
Halt dich an deiner Liebe fest.
Halt dich an deiner Liebe fest.
 
Wenn der Frühling kommt und deine Seele brennt,
Du wachst nachts auf aus deinen Träumen,
aber da is' niemand, der bei dir pennt,
wenn der, auf den du wartest, dich sitzen läßt:
Halt dich an deiner Liebe fest.
Halt dich an deiner Liebe fest.
 
Wenn der Novemberwind deine Hoffnung verweht,
und du bist so müde, weil du nicht mehr weißt, wie's weitergeht,
wenn dein kaltes Bett dich nicht schlafen läßt:
Halt dich an deiner Liebe fest.
Halt dich an deiner Liebe fest.

172. Hang On Sloopy

Ha-ang on Sloopy, Sloopy hang on!
Ha-ang on Sloopy, Sloopy hang on!
 
Sloopy lives in a very bad part of town,
And everybody, yeah, tries to put my Sloopy down.
Sloopy I don't care, what your daddy do,
'Cause you know Sloopy, girl, I'm in love with you!
And so I sing out:
Hang on Sloopy, Sloopy hang on! 
Hang on Sloopy, Sloopy hang on! 
 
Sloopy wears a red dress, yeah, 
As old as the hills. 
but when Sloopy wears that red dress, yeah. 
you know it gives me the chills. 
 
Sloopy when I see you walking, 
walking down the street: 
I say "don't worry Sloopy, girl, 
You belong to me!" 
And so I sing out: 
Hang on Sloopy, Sloopy hang on! 
Hang on Sloopy, Sloopy hang on! 
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah! 
 
 
Sloopy let your hair down, girl, 
Let it hang down on me. 
Sloopy let your hair down, girl, 
Let it hang down on me, yeah! 
 
Come on Sloopy, (come on, come on) 
Oh, come on Sloopy! (come on, come on)

Hankie war ein Dockarbeiter, konnte rackern wie kein zweiter.
Seine Heimat war der Kai, Lieblingslied Paloma, OhEh OhEh.
Hankies Job war das Verladen, und er hatte schon Milliarden
Tonnen Fracht an Land gebracht bis zu dieser einen Nacht, OhEh.

Man sagt, es macht nur lungenkrank und lasch, aber Hank starb an 'ner Überdosis Hasch. 
Man sagt, es macht nur lungenkrank und lasch, aber Hank starb an 'ner Überdosis Hasch. 
 
Übrig blieben Frau und Kind, die jetzt ohne Vater sind.

174. Happy

You're still hiding in the park, You look so happy when you're down, down, down,
Under the trees  where you won't be found.
 
And you're still dancing in the dark, It makes you happy when you're down, down, down.
Noone can see you spinning round and round.
And your feet, they keep on moving, Even when the nights are cold.
When you're old, will you still be dancing on, Into the da-a-awn of the light.
 
I haven't seen you for a while, You still look happy when you're down, down, down.
You keep on moving to keep warm when the leaves turn brown
 
You're still reaching up to the sky, It makes you happy when you're down, down, down.
I still believe that one day you will take off from the ground
And your stars, they keep on burning, Even when the nights are cold.
When you're old, will you still be dancing on - Into the da-a-awn.
 
Hear the voices singing everywhere. Singing love is coming down to those who care.
Hear the voices singing everywhere Singing love is coming down to those who care.
(4x)
And your feet, they keep on moving, Even when the nights are cold.
When you're old, will you still be dancing on, into the da-a-awn.
 
And your stars, they keep on burning, Even when the nights are cold.
When you're old, will you still be dancing on, Into the da-a-awn of the light

Imagine me and you, I do
I think about you day and night, it's only right
To think about the girl you love and hold her tight - So happy together
 
I should call you up, invest a dime 
And you say you belong to me and ease my mind 
Imagine how the world could be, so very fine - So happy together 
I can see me lovin' nobody but you for all my life
When you're with me, baby the skies will be blue for all my life
 
Me and you and you and me 
No matter how they thrust the dice, it has to be 
The only one for me is you, and you for me - So happy together 
I can see me lovin' nobody but you for all my life 
When you're with me, baby the skies will be blue for all my life 
Me and you and...

So happy together - We're happy together
So happy together - Happy together

177. Have You Ever Seen The Rain

(Intro) Someone told me long ago
There's a calm before the storm, I know, it's been coming for some time.
 
When it's over, so they say, It'll rain a sunny day, I know,
Shining down like water.
I wanna know: Have you ever seen the rain?
I wanna know: Have you ever seen the rain
Coming down on a sunny day?
 
Yesterday and days before Sun is cold and rain is hard, I know, 
Been that way for all my time. 
 
'Til forever on it goes, Thru the circle fast and slow, I know, 
It can't stop, I wonder: 
I wanna know: Have you ever seen the rain? 
I wanna know: Have you ever seen the rain 
Coming down on a sunny day? 
 
I wanna know: Have you ever seen the rain? 
I wanna know: Have you ever seen the rain 
Coming down on a sunny day? 

178. He-Ho, spann den Wagen an

He, ho, spann den Wagen an,

179. Heart of Gold

I wanna live, I wanna give,
I've been a miner for a heart of gold.
It's these expressions I never give
that keep me searchin' for a heart of gold,
And I'm gettin' old.
Keep me searchin' for a heart of gold,
And I'm gettin' old.
 
I've been to Hollywood, I've been to Redwood,
I'd cross the ocean for a heart of gold,
I've been in my mind, it's such a fine line
that keeps me searchin' for a heart of gold,
And I'm gettin' old,
Keeps me searchin' for a heart of gold,
And I'm gettin' old.
 
Keep me searchin' for a heart of gold,
You keep me searchin' and I'm growin' old.
Keep me searchin' for a heart of gold,
I've been a miner for a heart of gold.

180. Heimweh (Dort wo die Blumen blühn)

|:(so schön, schön war die Zeit) :|
Brennend heißer Wüstensand, (so schön, schön war die Zeit)
Fern, so fern dem Heimatland. (so schön, schön war die Zeit)
Kein Gruß, kein Herz, kein Kuss, kein Scherz;
Alles liegt so weit, so weit. (so schön, schön war die Zeit)
 
Viele Jahre schwere Fron, (so schön, schön war die Zeit)
Harte Arbeit, karger Lohn, (so schön, schön war die Zeit)
Tagaus, tagein, kein Glück, kein Heim;
Alles liegt so weit, so weit (so schön, schön war die Zeit)
Dort wo die Blumen blüh'n, Dort wo die Täler grün', Dort war ich einmal zuhause.
Wo ich die Liebste fand, Da liegt mein Heimatland,
wie lang bin ich noch allein? (so schön, schön war die Zeit)
 
Hört mich an, ihr goldenen Sterne, (so schön, schön war die Zeit) 
Grüßt die Lieben in der Ferne. (so schön, schön war die Zeit) 
Mit Freud und Leid - verrinnt - die Zeit; 
Alles liegt so weit so weit. (so schön, schön war die Zeit) 
Dort wo die Blumen blühn, Dort wo die Täler grün, Dort war ich einmal zuhause. 
Wo ich die Liebste fand, Da liegt mein Heimatland, Wie lang bin ich noch allein? 
|:(so schön, schön war die Zeit):| 

181. Help!

 
Help! I need somebody Help! Not just anybody
Help! You know I need someone, Help!
 
When I was younger, so much younger than today,
I never needed anybody's help in any way.
But now those days are gone I'm not so self-assured,
Now I find I've changed my mind, I've opened up the door.
Help me if you can I'm feeling down, and I do appreciate you being 'round.
Help me get my feet back on the ground, won't you please please help me.
 
And now my life has changed in oh so many ways, 
My independence seemed to vanish in the haze. 
But every now and then I feel so insecure, 
I know that I just need you like I've never done before. 
Help me if you can I'm feeling down, and I do appreciate you being 'round. 
Help me get my feet back on the ground, won't you please please help me. 
 
When I was younger, so much younger than today, 
I never needed anybody's help in any way. 
But now those days are gone I'm not so self-assured, 
Now I find I've changed my mind, I've opened up the door. 
Help me if you can I'm feeling down, and I do appreciate you being 'round. 
Help me get my feet back on the ground, won't you please please help me. 
Help me, help me, oooh. 

182. Helpless

There is a town in north Ontario With dream comfort memory to spare,
And in my mind I still need a place to go, All my changes were there.
 
Blue, blue windows behind the stars, Yellow moon on the rise.
Big birds flying across the sky Throwing shadows on our eyes.
Helpless, helpless, helpless!
Helpless, helpless, helpless!
Helpless, helpless, helpless!
Baby can you hear me now? The chains are locked and tied across the door.
Baby, sing with me somehow!
Helpless, helpless, helpless!
Helpless, helpless, helpless!
Helpless, helpless, helpless!
Blue, blue windows behind the stars, Yellow moon on the rise.
Big birds flying across the sky Throwing shadows on our eyes.
Helpless, helpless, helpless!
Helpless, helpless, helpless!
Helpless, helpless, helpless...

183. Here Comes the Sun

Here comes the sun, do do do do.
Here comes the sun, and I say; it's all right
Little darling,, it's been a long, cold, lonely winter.
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here.
Here comes the sun, do do do do. 
Here comes the sun, and I say, it's all right. 
 
Little darling, the smiles returning to their faces. 
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here. 
Here comes the sun, do do do do. 
Here comes the sun, and I say, it's all right. 
Su-un, sun, sun, here it comes!
Su-un, sun, sun, here it comes! 
Su-un, sun, sun, here it comes! 
 
Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting. 
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been clear. 
Here comes the sun, do do do do. 
Here comes the sun, and I say, it's all right. 
 
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes. 
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes... 

184. Here There and Everywhere

To lead a better life, I need my love to be here.
 
Here, making each day of the year;
Changing my life with a wave of her hand,
Nobody can deny that there's something there.
 
There, running my hands through her hair;
Both of us thinking how good it can be,
Someone is speaking, but she doesn't know he's there.
 
I want her everywhere
And if she's beside me I know I need never care.
But to love her is to need her everywhere.
Knowing that love is to share,
Each one believing that love never dies,
Watching her eyes, and hoping I'm always there!
 
I want her everywhere
And if she's beside me I know I need never care.
But to love her is to need her everywhere.
Knowing that love is to share,
Each one believing that love never dies,
Watching her eyes, and hoping I'm always there,
will be there, and everywhere.
Here, there, and everywhere.

185. Here’s to You (Nicola and Bart)

Here's to you, Nicola and Bart:
Rest forever here in our hearts.
The last and final moment is yours,
That agony is your triumph!

186. Heroes - Helden

(intro)
 
I, I will be king;
And you, you will be queen.
Though nothing will drive them away,
We can beat them, just for one day.
We can be Heroes, just for one day.
 
And you, you can be mean 
And I, I'll drink all the time 
'Cause we're lovers and that is a fact 
Yes, we're lovers and that is that 
Though nothing will keep us together 
We could steal time just for one day 
We can be heroes for ever and ever - What d'you say? 
 
Du, könntest du schwimmen 
Wie Delphine, Delphine es tun. 
Niemand gibt uns eine Chance 
Doch können wir siegen für immer und immer 
Und wir sind dann Helden für einen Tag 
 
 
Ich, ich bin dann König 
Und du, du Königin. 
Obwohl sie unschlagbar scheinen 
Werden wir Helden für einen Tag. 
Wir sind dann wir an diesem Tag. 
 
Ich, ich glaubte zu träumen. (zu träumen) 
Die Mauer im Rücken war kalt. (so kalt) 
Schüsse reißen die Luft, (reißen die Luft) 
Doch wir küssen, als ob nichts geschieht. (nichts geschieht) 
Und die Scham fiel auf ihrer Seite, 
Oh, wir können sie schlagen für alle Zeiten. 
Dann sind wir Helden für diesen Tag. 
 
Dann sind wir Helden! 
Dann sind wir Helden! 
Dann sind wir Helden, nur diesen Tag. 
Dann sind wir Helden! 
We're nothing and nothing will help us. 
Maybe we're lying, then you better not stay, 
But we could be safer, just for one day. 
Oh oh oh, Oh oh oh... 

187. Heute hier, morgen dort

Heute hier, morgen dort, bin kaum da, muß ich fort
hab mich niemals deswegen beklagt,
hab' es selbst so gewählt, nie die Jahre gezählt,
nie nach gestern und morgen gefragt.
Manchmal träume ich schwer, und dann denk' ich, es wär'
Zeit zu bleiben und nun was ganz and'res zu tun.
So vergeht Jahr um Jahr und es ist mir längst klar,
dass nichts bleibt, dass nichts bleibt, wie es war.
 
Das man mich kaum vermißt, schon nach Tagen vergißt, 
wenn ich längst wieder anderswo bin, 
stört und kümmert mich nicht, vielleicht bleibt mein Gesicht 
doch dem ein' oder anderen im Sinn. 
Manchmal träume ich schwer, und dann denk' ich, es wär' 
Zeit zu bleiben und nun was ganz and'res zu tun. 
So vergeht Jahr um Jahr und es ist mir längst klar, 
daß nichts bleibt, dass nichts bleibt, wie es war. 
 
Fragt mich einer, warum ich so bin, bleib ich stumm, 
denn die Antwort darauf fällt mir schwer, 
denn was neu ist, wird alt, und was gestern noch galt, 
stimmt schon heut oder morgen nicht mehr. 
Manchmal träume ich schwer, und dann denk' ich, es wär' 
Zeit zu bleiben und nun was ganz and'res zu tun. 
So vergeht Jahr um Jahr und es ist mir längst klar, 
daß nichts bleibt, dass nichts bleibt, wie es war. 

188. Hey Joe

Hey Joe where ya' goin' with that gun in your hand?
I said hey Joe where ya goin' with that gun in your hand?
I'm goin' out to find my woman now,
She's been runnin' round with some other man
I said I'm goin' out to find my woman now!
She's been runnin' 'round with some other man
 
Hey Joe tell me what are you gonna do? 
Hey Joe tell me what are you gonna do? 
Well I guess I'll shoot my woman, 
That's what I'll do! 
Well I guess I'll shoot them both 
Before I'm through. 
 
Hey Joe tell me where are you gonna go? 
Hey Joe tell me where are you gonna go? 
Well I think I'll go down to my favourite place Mexico, 
Well I think I'll go down to where a man can be free. 
And there ain't gonna be no hangmans ropes 
Gonna be put around me. 

189. Hey Jude

Hey Jude, don't make it bad, take a sad song and make it better!
Remember to let her into your heart, Then you can start to make it better.
 
Hey Jude, don't be afraid, you were made to go out and get her!
The minute you let her under your skin, Then you begin to make it better!
 
And anytime you feel the pain, Hey Jude, refrain, Don't carry the world upon your shoulders!
For well now you know that it's a fool who plays it cool By making his world a little colder.
Na-na-na na-na na-na-na
 
Hey Jude, don't let me down, You have found her, now go and get her!
Remember to let her into your heart, Then you can start, to make it better!
 
So let it out and let it in, Hey Jude, begin; You're waiting for someone to perform with!
And don't you know that it's just you, Hey Jude, You'll do, The movement you need is on your shoulders.
Na-na-na na-na na-na-na, yeah!
 
Hey Jude, don't make it bad, take a sad song and make it better!
Remember to let her into your heart, Then you can start to make it better, better, better, better! Oooh!
 
Na-na-na Nana-na-na, Nana-na-na, Hey Jude! Na-na-na Nana-na-na, ...

190. Hey, Pippi Langstrumpf

Zwei mal Drei macht Vier - Widewidewitt und Drei macht Neune,
Ich mach mir die Welt, - Widewide wie sie mir gefällt.

192. The Ballad of High Noon (Do not Forsake me, o my Darlin')

Do not forsake me, oh my darling,
On this our wedding day.
Do not forsake me, oh my darling,
Wait, wait a- -long!
 
I do not know what fate awaits me.
I only know I must be brave!
And I must face a man who hates me,
Or ly a coward, a craven coward,
Or ly a coward in my grave.
Oh, to be torn twixt love and duty
Supposin' I lose my fair haired beauty 
Look at that big hand movin' round 
Nearin' high noon!
 
He made a vow while in state prison
Said it would be my life or his'n,
I'm not afraid of death, but oh,
What will I do if you leave me?
 
Do not forsake me, oh my darling,
You made that promise as a bride.
Do not forsake me, oh my darling,
Although you're grievin', I Can't be leavin',
Now that I need you by my side!
 
Wait along, wait along,
Wait along, wait along...

193. The Highwayman

I was a highwayman, along the coach roads I did ride, Sword and pistol by my side,
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade,
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade,
The basterds hung me in the spring of twenty-five, But I am still alive...
I was a sailor, I was born upon the tide, With the sea I did abide,
I sailed a schooner round the horn of Mexico,
I went aloft and furled the main sail in a blow,
And when the yards broke off they said that I've got killed, But I am living still...
I was a dam builder, across the river deep and wide, Where steel and water did collide,
A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado,
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below,
They buried me in that gray tomb that knows no sounds, But I am still around...
I'll always be around, and around, and around, and around, and around
I'll fly a starship 'cross the universe divide, And when I reach the other side,
I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can,
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again,
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain, But I will remain...
And I'll be back again, and again, and again, and again, and again

194. Hit The Road, Jack

/ / / / / / / / (repeat)
Hit the road, Jack and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more
Hit the road, Jack and don't you come back no mo-o-o-o-ore
What'd you say? 
Hit the road, Jack and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more 
Hit the road, Jack and don't you come back no more 
Woo! 
Woman, oh woman, don't treat me so mean 
You're the meanest old woman that I've ever seen 
I guess if you say so 
I'd have to pack my things and go 
That's right! 
 
Hit the road, Jack and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more 
Hit the road, Jack and don't you come back, no more 
What'd you say? 
Hit the road, Jack and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more 
Hit the road, Jack and don't you come back no more 
Now baby, listen, baby, don't ya treat me this way 
Cause I'll be back on my feet some day 
Don't care if you do 'cause it's understood 
You ain't got no money you just ain't no good 
Well, I guess if you say so 
I'd have to pack my things and go 
That's right! 
Hit the road, Jack and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more 
Hit the road, Jack and don't you come back no more 
What you say? 
Hit the road, Jack and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more 
Hit the road, Jack and don't you come back no more 
Well 
 
Don't you come back no more - Uh, what'd you say? 
Don't you come back no more - I didn't understand you! 
Don't you come back no more - You can't mean that! 
Don't you come back no more - Oh, no baby, please! 
Don't you come back no more - What you tryin' to do to me? 
Don't you come back no more - Oh, don't treat me like that! 
Don't you come back no more - ... 

195. Homeward Bound

I'm sitting in a railway station, Got a ticket for my destination.
On a tour of one night stands, My suitcase and guitar in hand,
And every stop is neatly planned - For a poet and a one man band.
Homeward bound, - I wish I was homeward bound,
Home, where my thoughts are 'scaping, - Home, where my music's playing,
Home, where my love lies waiting silently for me.
 
Everyday's an endless stream Of cigarettes and magazines. 
And each town looks the same to me, The movies and the factories, 
And every stranger's face I see - Reminds me that I long to be... 
Homeward bound, - I wish I was homeward bound, 
Home, where my thoughts are 'scaping, - Home, where my music's playing, 
Home, where my love lies waiting silently for me. 
 
Tonight I'll sing my songs again, I'll play the game and pretend, 
But all my words come back to me - In shades of mediocrity, 
Like emptiness in harmony, I need someone to comfort me. 
Homeward bound, - I wish I was homeward bound, 
Home, where my thoughts are 'scaping, - Home, where my music's playing, 
Home, where my love lies waiting silently for me. 
Silently for me... 

196. Hoochie Coochie Man

The gypsy woman told my mother,
Before I was born
I got a boy child's comin',
He's gonna be a son of a gun
He gonna make pretty women's,
jump and shout
Then the world wanna know,
what this all about
But you know I'm him,
everybody knows I'm him
Well you know I'm the hoochie coochie man,
everybody knows I'm him
 
I got a black cat bone, 
I got a mojo too. 
I got the Johnny Concheroo, 
I'm gonna mess with you. 
I'm gonna make you girls, 
lead me by my hand, 
Then the world will know, 
the hoochie coochie man! 
But you know I'm him, 
Everybody knows I'm him 
Well you know I'm the hoochie coochie man, 
Everybody knows I'm him 
 
On the seventh hours, 
on the seventh day, 
On the seventh month, 
the seven doctors say: 
He was born for good luck, 
and that you'll see, 
I got seven hundred dollars, 
don't you mess with me! 
But you know I'm him, 
Everybody knows I'm him. 
Well you know I'm the hoochie coochie man, 
Everybody knows I'm him! 

197. Horch was kommt von draußen 'rein

Horch was kommt von draußen 'rein - Hollahi Hollaho
Wird wohl mein fein's Liebchen sein - Hollahi jaho
Geht vorbei und schaut nicht 'rein - Hollahi Hollaho
Wird's wohl nicht gewesen sein - Hollahi jaho
 
Leute haben's oft gesagt - Hollahi Hollaho 
Daß ich ein fein's Liebchen hab - Hollahi jaho 
Laß sie reden schweig fein still - Hollahi Hollaho 
Kann ja lieben wen ich will - Hollahi jaho 
 
Sagt mir, Leute, ganz gewiß, - Hollahi Hollaho 
Was das für ein Lieben ist; - Hollahi jaho 
Die ich liebe, krieg ich nicht, - Hollahi Hollaho 
Und 'ne andre mag ich nicht. - Hollahi jaho 
 
Wenn mein Liebchen Hochzeit hat - Hollahi Hollaho 
Ist für mich ein Trauertag - Hollahi jaho 
Geh ich in mein Kämmerlein - Hollahi Hollaho 
Trage meinen Schmerz allein - Hollahi jaho 
 
Wenn ich dann gestorben bin - Hollahi Hollaho 
Trägt man mich zum Grabe hin - Hollahi jaho 
Setzt mir einen Leichenstein - Hollahi Hollaho 
Pflanzt mir drauf Vergißnicht mein - Hollahi jaho 
 
Wenn ich dann im Himmel bin, - Hollahi Hollaho 
Ist mein Liebchen auch darin, - Hollahi jaho 
Denn es ist ein alter Brauch, - Hollahi Hollaho 
Was sich liebt, das kriegt sich auch, - Hollahi jaho 

198. Horse With No Name

On the first part of the journey
I was lookin at all the life 
There were plants and birds and rocks and things 
There were sand and hills and rings 
The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz 
and the sky with no clouds 
the heat was hot and the ground was dry 
but the air was full of sound 
I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
it felt good to be out of the rain 
in the desert you can remember your name 
'cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain 
la la la la lalala la la la la la 
 
After two days in the desert sun 
my skin began to turn red 
After three days in the desert fun 
I was looking at a river bed 
And the story it told of a river that flowed 
made me sad to think it was dead 
I've been through the desert ... 
 
After nine days I let the horse run free 
'cause the desert had turned to sea 
there were plants and birds and rocks and things 
there were sand and hills and rings 
The ocean is a desert with it's life underground 
and the perfect disguise above 
Under the cities lies a heart made of ground 
but the humans will give no love 
I've been through the desert ...

199. House of the Rising Sun

There is a house in New Orleans They call the rising sun.
And its been the ruin of many a poor boy, And me, oh Lord, I'm one.
 
My mother she's a tailor, She sewed those new blue jeans.
My father he's a gamblin' man - Drinks down in New Orleans.
 
Now the only things a gambler needs Is a suitcase and a trunk.
And the only time that he's satisfied Is when he's on a drunk.
 
There's one foot on the platform, The other foot on the train.
I'm goin' back to New Orleans To wear that ball and chain.
 
Go mother tell your children: Not to do what I have done.
Spend your life sin-cere in misery In the House of the Rising Sun.
 
There is a house... 

200. Hungry Freaks, Daddy

 
Mister America walk on by 
Your schools that do not teach 
Mister America walk on by 
The minds that won't be reached 
Mister America try to hide 
The emptiness that's you inside 
When once you find that the way you lied 
And all the corny tricks you tried 
Will not forestall the rising tide of 
Hungry freaks, Daddy . . . 
They won't go for no more 
Great mid-western hardware store 
Philosophy that turns away 
From those who aren't afraid to say 
What's on their minds 
The left-behinds 
Of the Great Society 
 
Mister America walk on by 
Your supermarket dream 
Mister America walk on by 
The liquor store supreme 
Mister America try to hide 
The product of your savage pride 
The useful minds that it denied 
The day you shrugged and stepped aside 
You saw their clothes and then you cried: 
THOSE HUNGRY FREAKS, DADDY! 
They won't go for no more 
Great mid-western hardware store 
Philosophy that turns away 
From those who aren't afraid to say 
What's on their minds 
(The left-behinds of the Great Society) 

201. Hungry Heart

Got a wife and kids in Baltimore, Jack,
I went out for a ride and I never went back.
Like a river that don't know where it's flowing
I took a wrong turn and I just kept going.
Everybody's got a hungry heart, - Everybody's got a hungry heart.
Lay down your money and you play your part, - Everybody's got a hungry heart.
 
I met her in a Kingstown bar
We fell in love I knew it had to end
We took what we had and we ripped it apart
Now here I am down in Kingstown again
Everybody's got a hungry heart, - Everybody's got a hungry heart.
Lay down your money and you play your part, - Everybody's got a hungry heart.
Everybody needs a place to rest,
Everybody wants to have a home.
Don't make no difference what nobody says,
Ain't nobody like to be alone,
Everybody's got a hungry heart, - Everybody's got a hungry heart.
Lay down your money and you play your part, - Everybody's got a hungry heart.

202. Hurdy Gurdy Man

 
Thrown like a star in my vast sleep I open my eyes to take a peep
To find that I was by the sea gazing with tranquility
'Twas then that the Hurdy Gurdy Man came singing songs of love.
Then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man came singing songs of love.
Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy gurdy he sang.
Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy gurdy he sang.
Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy gurdy he sang.
 
Histories of ages past unenlightened shadows cast.
Down through all eternity the crying of humanity.
'Tis then that the Hurdy Gurdy Man comes singing songs of love.
Then that the Hurdy Gurdy Man comes singing songs of love.
Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy gurdy he sang... 
When the truth gets buried deep Beneath a thousand years of sleep,
Time demands a turn-around And once again the truth is found:
Awakening the Hurdy Gurdy Man Who comes singing songs of love.
Awakening the Hurdy Gurdy Man Who comes singing songs of love.
Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy gurdy he sang... 

203. Hurt

I hurt myself today - to see if I still feel.
I focus on the pain - the only thing that's real.
The needle tears a hole - the old familiar sting.
Try to kill it all away - but I remember everything!
What have I become - my sweetest friend?
Everyone I know - goes away in the end!
And you could have it all - my empire of dirt.
I will let you down - I will make you hurt!
I wear this crown of thorns - upon my liars chair
Full of broken thoughts - I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time - the feelings disappear
You are someone else - I am still right here.
What have I become - my sweetest friend?
Everyone I know - goes away in the end!
And you could have it all - my empire of dirt.
I will let you down - I will make you hurt!
If I could start again - A million miles away
I would keep myself - I would find a way

204. I Am A Rock

 
A winter's day- in a deep and dark December
I am alone-
Gazing from my window to the streets below
On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow.
I am a rock, I am an island.
 
I've built walls, A fortress deep and mighty, 
That none may penetrate. 
I have no need of friendship, friendship causes pain 
It's laughter and loving I disdain: 
I am a rock, I am an island. 
 
Don't talk of love - But I've heard the word before: 
It's sleeping in my memory; 
I won't disturb the slumber of the feelings that have died, 
If I never loved I never would have cried! 
I am a rock, I am an island. 
 
I have my books - And my poetry to protect me. 
I am shielded in my armour. 
Hiding in my room, safe within my womb, 
I touch no one and no one touches me. 
I am a rock, I am an island.
And a rock feels no pain, and an island never cries.

205. I Am The Walrus

| / / / / | / / / / | / / / / | / / / / | / / / / | / / / / | / / / / |
I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together
See how they run like pigs from a gun see how they fly; I'm crying!
 
Sitting on a cornflake waiting for the van to come.
Corporation tee shirt, stupid bloody Tuesday, Man you've been a naughty boy you let your face grow long!
I am the egg-man, they are the egg-men, I am the Walrus - Goo goo g'joob!
 
Mister city p'liceman sitting pretty little p'lice men in a row;
See how they fly like Lucy in the Sky see how they run: I'm crying!
I'm cry-ing I'm crying - I'm cry-ing!
 
Yellow matter custard dripping from a dead dog's eye.
Crab a locker fishwife, pornographic priestess, Boy you been a naughty girl you let your knickers down!
I am the egg-man, they are the egg-men, I am the Walrus - Goo goo g'joob!
 
Sitting in an English garden waiting for the sun.
If the sun don't come you get a tan from standing in the English rain
I am the egg-man, they are the egg-men, I am the Walrus - Goo goo g'joob!
 
Expert, texpert, choking smokers, don't you think the joker laughs at you?
See how they smile like pigs in a sty, see how they snied: I'm crying!
 
Semolina Pilchard climbing up the Eiffel Tower.
Element'ry penguin singing Hare Krishna. Man you should have seen them kicking Edgar Allan Poe!
I am the egg-man, they are the egg-men, I am the Walrus - Goo goo g'joob!
Goo goo g'joob! Goo goo goo... 

206. I Can See For Miles

I know you've deceived me, now here's a surprise
I know that you have cause there's magic in my eyes
I can see for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles, oh yeah
 
If you think I don't know about all the little trick you play
And you think I never see you when dilib'ratly you put things in my way
Well here's a poke at you, you're gonna choke on it too
You're gonna lose that smile because all the while
I could see for miles and miles, I could see for miles and miles
I can see for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles, oh yeah
 
You took advantage of my trust in you when I was so far away 
I saw you holding lots of other guys and now you've got the nerve to say 
That you still want me, wel that's as may be 
But you gotta stand trial because all the while 
I could see for miles and miles, I could see for miles and miles 
I can see for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles, oh yeah 
 
The Eiffle Tower and Taj Mahal are mine to see on clear days 
You thought that I would need a crystal ball to see right thru the haze 
Well here's a poke at you, you're gonna choke on it too 
You're gonna lose that smile because all the while 
I could see for miles and miles, I could see for miles and miles 
 
I can see for miles and miles and miles
And miles and miles and miles and miles and miles

207. I can't Control Myself

Oh no! Bababababa babababa, bababababa babababa.
 
I can't sit still 'cause you got me going! baba...
Your slacks are low and your hips are showing! baba... 
I take you, girl, as you're standing there,
Your low-cut slacks and your long black hair,
I want you going out with no one else,
'Cause when I'm with you I can't control myself.
 
The dance is done and you got me shaking! baba...
You've got me so that my nerves are breaking! baba... 
If you knew me like I know you, girl,
Your knees would bend and your hair would curl,
You make me move, yeah, like no one else,
and when I'm with you I can't control myself.
I've got this feeling that's inside of me,
It makes me think of how things used to be. 
It makes me feel alright, when I'm with you at night,
and we love, and we love. Baba........
 
You thrill me so with this big temptation! baba....
This kind of feeling could move a nation! baba..... 
I'm ok when I'm here with you, I do the things that you want me to,
I do these things for no one else,
but when I'm with you I can't control myself.
Babababababa - I can't control myself - Whoaah - ...

208. I Don't Need no Doctor

I don't need no doctor
My prescriptions don't get filled.
I don't need no doctor
My prescirptions don't get filled.
All I need is my baby cause I'm in misery.
 
I don't need no doctor 
Cause I know what's ailing me. 
I don't need no doctor 
Cause I know what's ailing me. 
All I need is my baby cause I'm in misery. 
 
Well, the doctor said I need rest (ooh ooh) 
Put me on a critical list (ooh ooh) 
To keep me safe from harm (ooh ooh) 
All I need is my baby's sweet charms. (ooh ooh) 
He gave me a medicated lotion, it was no good. 

209. I Feel Free

Bo Bo Bo Bo Bo Bo Bo Bo Bo Bo Bo Bo (I feel free)
Um Um Um Um Um Um Um Um Um
Um Um Um Um Um Um Um Um
Um Um Um Um Um Um Um Um Um Um Um Um Um
Feel when I dance with you, We move like the sea.
You, you're all I want to know.
I feel free, I feel free, I feel free.
I can walk down the street, there's no one there
Though the pavements are one huge crowd.
I can drive down the road; my eyes don't see,
Though my mind wants to cry out loud.
 
I feel free, I feel free, I feel free.
I can walk down the street, there's no one there
Though the pavements are one huge crowd.
I can drive down the road; my eyes don't see,
Though my mind wants to cry out loud.
Though my mind wants to cry out loud.
Dance floor is like the sea, Ceiling is the sky.
You're the sun and as you shine on me,
I feel free, I feel free, I feel free.

210. I Shall Be Released

They say ev’rything can be replaced, Yet ev’ry distance is not near;
So I remember ev’ry face, Of ev’ry man who put me here.
I see my light come shining, from the west unto the east
Any day now, any day now, I shall be relased
 
They say ev’ry man needs protection, They say ev’ry man must fall.
Yet I swear I see my reflection, Some place so high above this wall.
I see my light come shining, from the west unto the east
Any day now, any day now, I shall be relased
 
Standing next to me in this lonely crowd, Is a man who swears he’s not to blame.
All day long I hear him shout so loud, Crying out that he was framed.
I see my light come shining, from the west unto the east
Any day now, any day now, I shall be relased

 

211. I Shot the Sheriff

I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy
I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy
All around in my home town - They're trying to track me down
They say they want to bring me in guilty - For the killing of a deputy
For the life of a deputy But I say?
I shot the sheriff, but I swear it was in self-defense 
I shot the sheriff, and they say it is a capital offense 
 
Sheriff John Brown always hated me - For what I don't know 
Every time that I plant a seed - He said "Kill it before it grows" 
He said "Kill it before it grows" I say! 
I shot the sheriff, but I swear it was in self-defense 
I shot the sheriff, but I swear it was in self-defense 
 
Freedom came my way one day - And I started out of town yeah 
All of a sudden I see sheriff John Brown - Aiming to shoot me down 
So I shot, I shot him down! I say: 
I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy 
I shot the sheriff, but I didn't shoot the deputy 
 
Reflexes got the better of me - And what is to be must be 
Every day the bucket falls to the well - But one day the bottom will drop out 
Yes, one day the bottom will drop out, But I say: 
I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy, oh no 
I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot no deputy, oh no 

212. I Won't Back Down

Well I won't back down, no I won't back down.
You can stand me up at the gates of hell,
But I won't back down.
 
I'm gonna stand my ground, won't be turned a-round.
And I'll keep this world from draggin' me down,
Gonna stand my ground, and I won't back down.
Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out!
Hey, I will stand my ground, and I won't back down.
 
Well I know what's right, and I got just one life.
In a world that keeps on pushin' me around,
But I'll stand my ground, and I won't back down.
Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out!
Hey, I will stand my ground, and I won't back down.
Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out!
Hey, I will stand my ground, and I won't back down.
No, I won't back down.

213. Ich fahr mit der Lambretta

Morgens früh um viere - da klopft es an der Türe
und Erna sagt mit wichtigem Gesicht:
"Du kommst jetzt aus dem warmen Bett!" - Doch ich ich find das gar nicht nett,
denn Arbeit, die liegt mir nicht.
Ich fahr mit der Lambretta raus zu meinem Vetter - wo die blauen Kornblumen blühn.
Ich leg mich in die Sonne und strecke mich vor Wonne - und laß den Tag an mir vorüber ziehn.
 
Ich denk an die Kollegen, die müssen sich bewegen. 
Von fünfe bis um zweie auf der Schicht. 
Ich aber muß mich schonen, das muß ich hier betonen, 
denn Arbeit, die liegt mir nicht. 
Die Badehose eingepackt die Sonnencreme auch,
die schmier ich mir nachher bei Heinz mitten auf den Bauch.
Ja ich fahr mit der Lambretta raus zu meinem Vetter - wo die blauen Kornblumen blühn. 
Ich leg mich in die Sonne und strecke mich vor Wonne - und lass den Tag an mir vorüber ziehn. 
 
Ich springe aus der Feder wie Bierhoff an das Leder 
und ziehe mich in Windeseile an. 
Erna ruft noch mach kein Scheiß, vor Zorn ist ihr Gesicht ganz weiß, 
denn Arbeit, die liegt mir nicht. 
Ja ich fahr mit der Lambretta raus zu meinem Vetter - wo die blauen Kornblumen blühn. 
Ich leg mich in die Sonne und strecke mich vor Wonne - und lass den Tag an mir vorüber ziehn. 
 
Mit 26 Sachen heize ich den Karren, kühler Fahrtwind peitscht mir ins Gesicht. 
Gleich liege ich im Liegestuhl, wie Apathisch und ganz cool, 
denn Arbeit, die liegt mir nicht. 
Ja ich fahr mit der Lambretta raus zu meinem Vetter - wo die blauen Kornblumen blühn. 
Ich leg mich in die Sonne und strecke mich vor Wonne - und lass den Tag an mir vorüber ziehn. 
Die Badehose eingepackt die Sonnencreme auch 
die schmier ich mir nachher bei Heinz mitten auf den Bauch. 
Ja ich fahr mit der Lambretta raus zu meinem Vetter - wo die blauen Kornblumen blühn. 
Ich leg mich in die Sonne und strecke mich vor Wonne - und lass den Tag an mir vorüber ziehn. 

214. Ich war noch niemals in New York

Und nach dem Abendessen sagte er: Lass mich noch eben Zigaretten holen gehn.
Sie rief ihm nach: Nimm Dir die Schlüssel mit! Ich werd inzwischen nach der Kleinen sehn.
Er zog die Tür zu, ging stumm hinaus, ins neonhelle Treppenhaus.
Es roch nach Bohnerwachs und Spießigkeit, Und auf der Treppe dachte er:
Wie wenn das jetzt ein Aufbruch wär. Ich müsste einfach gehn: Für alle Zeit, für alle Zeit!
Ich war noch niemals in New York. ich war noch niemals auf Hawaii.
Ging nie durch San Franzisko in zerrissnen Jeans.
Ich war noch niemals in New York. Ich war noch niemals richtig frei.
Einmal verrückt sein und aus allen Zwängen fliehn.
 
Und als er draußen auf der Straße stand, fiel ihm ein, dass er fast alles bei sich trug.
Den Pass, die Eurochecks und etwas Geld, vielleicht ging heute abend noch ein Flug.
Er könnt' ein Taxi nehmen dort am Eck, oder Autostop und einfach weg.
Die Sehnsucht in ihm wurde wieder wach. Noch einmal voll von Träumen sein,
sich aus der Enge hier befrein. Er dachte über seinen Aufbruch nach, seinen Aufbruch nach!
Ich war noch niemals in New York. Ich war noch niemals auf Hawaii. 
Ging nie durch San Franzisko in zerrissnen Jeans. 
Ich war noch niemals in New York. Ich war noch niemals richtig frei. 
Einmal verrückt sein und aus allen Zwängen fliehn. 
 
Dann steckte er die Zigaretten ein, und ging wie selbstverständlich heim.
Durchs Treppenhaus mit Bohnerwachs und Spießigkeit.
Die Frau rief: "Mann, wo bleibst Du bloß ? Wetten-dass mit Gottschalk geht gleich los!"
Sie fragte: "War was?" - "Nein, was soll schon sein."
Da-da-da.... 
 
Ich war noch niemals in New York... 

215. If I had a Hammer

If I had a hammer, I’d hammer in the morning,
I’d hammer in the evening all over this land.
I’d hammer out danger, I’d hammer out a warning,
I’d hammer out love between my brothers and my sisters,
ah all over this land.
 
If I had a bell, I’d ring it in the morning, 
I’d ring it in the evening all over this land. 
I’d ring it out danger, I’d ring it out a warning, 
I’d ring it out love between my brothers and my sisters, 
ah all over this land. 
 
If I had a song, I’d sing it in the morning, 
I’d sing it in the evening all over this land. 
I’d sing it out danger, I’d sing it out a warning, 
I’d sing it out love between my brothers and my sisters, 
ah all over this land. 
 
Now I‘ve got a hammer, and I’ve got a bell, 
and I’ve got a song to sing all over this land. 
It’s a hammer of justice, it’s a bell of freedom, 
it’s a song about love between my brothers and my sisters, 
all over this land. 

216. If I Were A Carpenter

 
If I were a carpenter
and you were a lady,
Would you marry me anyway?
Would you have my baby?
 
If a tinker were my trade
would you still find me,
carrying the pots I made,
following behind me.
Save my love through loneliness,
Save my love for sorrow,
I'm givin' you my onlyness,
Come give me your's tomorrow.
 
If I worked my hands in wood, 
Would you still love me? 
Answer me babe, "Yes I would, 
I'll put you above me." 
 
If I were a miller 
at a mill wheel grinding, 
would you miss your color box, 
and your soft shoe shining? 
Save my love... 
 
If I were a carpenter 
and you were a lady, 
Would you marry me anyway, 
Would you have my baby? 
Would you marry anyway, 
Would you have my baby? 

217. If You Could Read My Mind

If you could read my mind love - What a tale my thoughts could tell!
Just like an old time movie - 'bout a ghost from a wishin' well!
In a castle dark or a fortress strong - With chains upon my feet - You know that ghost is me;
And I will never be set free - As long as I'm a ghost that you can't see.
 
If I could read your mind love - What a tale your thoughts could tell?
Just like a paperback novel - The kind that drugstores sell.
When you reach the part where the heartaches come, The hero would be me. But heroes often fail!
And you won't read that book again - Because the ending's just too hard to take.
I'd walk away like a movie star - Who get's burned in a three way script.
Enter number two - A movie queen to play the scene
Of bringing all the good things out in me! But for now love, let's be real;
I never thought I could act this way - And I've got to say that I just don't get it;
I don't know where we went wrong - But the feeling's gone - And I just can't get it back.
 
If I could read your mind love - What a tale your thoughts could tell!
Just like an old time movie - 'bout a ghost from a wishin' well.
In a castle dark or a fortress strong - With chains upon my feet. But stories always end,
And if you read between the lines - You'll know that I'm just tryin' to understand:
The feelin's that you lack. I never thought I could feel this way,
And I've got to say that I just don't get it - I don't know where we went wrong,
But the feelin's gone - And I just can't get it back.

218. I'm A Believer

I thought love was only true in fairy tales.
Meant for someone else but not for me.
Love was out to get me;
That's the way it seemed;
Disappointment haunted all my dreams
Then I saw her face Now I'm a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind
I'm in love -hoo-hoo; I'm a believer, I couldn't leave her if I tried.
 
I thought love was more or less a givin' thing
It seems the more I gave the less I got
What's the use in tryin'
All you get is pain
When I needed sunshine I got rain.
Then I saw her face Now I'm a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind
I'm in love -hoo-hoo; I'm a believer, I couldn't leave her if I tried.

219. I'm a Boy

One girl was called Jean Marie
Another little girl was called Felicity.
Another little girl was called Sally Joy,
The other was me and I'm a boy
My name is Bill and I'm a head case
They practice making up on my face
Yeah, I feel lucky if I get trousers to wear
Spend evenings taking hair pins from my hair
I'm a boy, I'm a boy, but my Ma won't admit it!
I'm a boy, I'm a boy, but if I say I am I get it!
 
Put your frock on Jean Marie;
Plait your hair Felicity!
Paint your nails little Sally Joy;
Put this wig on little boy!
I'm a boy, I'm a boy, but my ma won't admit it!
I'm a boy, I'm a boy if I say I am I get it!
 
(pedal)
 
I wanna play cricket on the green,
Ride my bike across the stream!
Cut myself and see my blood;
I wanna come home all covered with mud!
I'm a boy, I'm a boy, but my ma won't admit it;
I'm a boy, I'm a boy, I'm a boy!
I'm a boy, I'm a boy, I'm a boy, I'm a boy;
I'm a boy, I'm a boy, I'm a boy!

220. I'm a Train

Look at me I'm a train I'm a track I'm a train
I'm a Train I'm a ticke Train Yahaha.
 
Look at me get it low I'm a track I'm a train 
I'm a train I'm a ticke train Yahaha. 
 
Look at me I'm going somewhere I'm a train 
I'm a train I'm a ticke train Yahaha 
 
Look at me I'm going somewhere I'm a train 
I’m a train I’m a ticke train Yahaha 
Been a hard day Yes it has
Been a hard day Yes it has
Been a hard day Yes it has
I'm a Train, I'm a ticke train, I'm a Train, I'm a ticke train, 
I'm a Train, I'm a ticke train, ticke train Yahaha
