Link the Lyrics (again)
A cheap holiday in other people's misery

I don't wanna holiday in the sun
I wanna go to the new Belsen
I wanna see some history
'cause now t got a reasonable economy

Oh now I got a reason...
and l'm still waiting
Now I got a reason
to be waiting
the Berlin wall

In sensurround sound in a two inch wall
well I was waiting for the communist call
I didn't ask for sunshine
and I got world war three
I'm looking over the wall
and they're looking at me

"Holidays In The Sun"

You can go on a trip
By yourself
Take a nap or a nip
By yourself
You can get into bed
On your own
There are lots of things that you can do

It takes two to tango
Two to tango
Two to really get the feeling of romance
Let's do the tango
Do the tango
Do the dance of love

Louis Armstrong ???????

A Fine Romance

A fine romance, with no kisses
A fine romance, my friend this is
We should be like a couple of hot tomatoes
But you're as cold as yesterday's mashed potatoes
A fine romance, you won't nestle
A fine romance, you won't wrestle
I might as well play bridge
With my old maid aunt
I haven't got a chance
This is a fine romance

Ella Fitzgerald & Bing and Dixie Lee Crosby (and others)
Words by Dorothy Fields

This song is funny!

I saw her today at the reception
A glass of wine in her hand.
I knew she was gonna meet her connection,
At her feet was a footloose man.

You can't always get what you want,
You can't always get what you want.
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes
You just might find
You get what you need!

You get what you need....What you need

What you want
Baby, I got
What you need
Do you know I got it?
All I'm askin'
Is for a little respect when you come home (just a little bit)
Hey baby (just a little bit)

Find out what it means to me
Take care, TCB

Baby I've been your shadow
I'm on your heels both night and day
Baby I'm getting warmer
I'm getting closer, inches away
I've been watching every move you make
And I've got feelings overdue
I got it in for you
(I got it in for you)
I got it in for you
(I got it in for you)

Don't you know
Lies a body oozing life Eek
Someone's sneaking round the corner
Could that be our boy, Mack the knife?

And the battle's just begun
There's many lost, but tell me who has won
The trench is dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters
Torn apart

How long? How long...

We've only just begun to live,
White lace and promises
A kiss for luck and we're on our way.
And yes, We've just begun.

Before the rising sun we fly,
So many roads to choose
We start our walking and learn to run.
And yes, We've just begun

"We've Only Just Begun"

A kiss on the hand may be quite continental
But diamonds are a girl's best friend
A kiss may be grand but it won't pay the rental
On your humble flat, or help you at the automat
Men grow cold as girls grow old
And we all lose our charms in the end
But square-cut or pear-shaped
These rocks don't lose their shape
Diamonds are a girl's best friend

"Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend"
Sung by Marilyn Monroe

I wonder who's kissing her now?
Wonder who's teaching her how.
Wonder who's looking into her eyes
Breathing sighs, telling lies,
I wonder who's buying the wine
For lips that I used to call mine
Wonder if she ever tells him of me.
I wonder who's kissing her now.

A kiss...grow old
It's Almost Tomorrow

My dearest my darling tomorrow is near
The sun will bring showers of sadness I fear
You lips won't be smiling, your eyes will not shine
For I know tomorrow that your love won't be mine

Its almost tomorrow, but what can I do
Your kisses all tell me that your love is untrue
I'll love you forever 'til stars cease to shine
And hope someday darling, you'll always be mine

Your heart was so warm dear, it now has turned cold
You no longer love me, for your memories grow old
It's almost tomorrow, for here comes the sun
But still I am hoping that tomorrow won't come

The Dream Weavers, 1955

Beth I hear you calling
But I can't come home right now
Me and the boys are playing
And we just can't find the sound

Just a few more hours
And I'll be right home to you
I think I hear them calling
Oh Beth what can I do
Beth what can I do

April 02, 2003, 20:12
Oh the boys are playing softly
and the girls are too
so am I and so are you
If this was a movie we'd be right on cue
I just wanna dance with you

Some girls give me jewelry
Others buy me clothes
Some girls give me children
I never asked them for

So give me all your money
Give me all your gold
I'll buy you a house back in Zuma beach
And give you half of what I own.

He'll never love you, the way that I love you
'Cause if he did, no no, he wouldn't make you cry
He might be thrillin' baby but a-my love (my love, my love)
So dog-gone willin'
So kiss him (I wanna see you kiss him. Wanna see you kiss him)
Go on and kiss him goodbye, now

When we wake to the morning sun
And though you may leave me
We're never apart

Save me from the nothing I've become.

I'm goin' back someday, come what may,
to Blue Bayou
where the folks are fine and the world is mine on Blue Bayou
where those fishin' boats with their sails afloat.
If I could only see
that familiar sunrise through sleepy eyes
how happy I'd be.

No matter what you do
There's no escape for you
You say we go too far
You say I'll take my car

So it always ends the same
There's no one else to blame
But I'd die
If you would call my name

No Matter Who You Are
Phil Collins

Well it's a long, long road when you're out there alone,
no matter what side you're on,
but there's a heart of gold behind the smile
and it brought me to where I belong.

The long and winding road that leads to your door,
Will never disappear,
I've seen that road before It always leads me here,

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

I see a line of cars and they're all painted black
With flowers and my love both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a new born baby it just happens ev'ry day

"Paint it Black"
The Rolling Stones

Summer loving had me a blast

Met a boy cute as can be

The Star Spangled Banner
~Francis Scott Key
Oh, say can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
April 07, 2003, 07:53
Well it's a marvelous night for a moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
'Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I'm trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low

Van Morrison

Dream a Little Dream

Stars shining bright above me
Night breezes seem to whisper I love you
Birds singing in the sycamore tree
Dream a little dream of me

Say nighty nite 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 shining but I linger on here
Still craving your kiss
I'm longing to linger till dawn here
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

(One of my favorite songs. I sang it at our gig last Thursday! I've heard it sung by Mama Cass of the Mamas and the Papas and Louie Armstrong)
April 07, 2003, 21:37
You used to captivate me
by your resonating light
but now I'm bound by the life you left behind
your face it haunts my once pleasant dreams
your voice it chased away all the sanity in me

I've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone
and though you're still with me
I've been alone all along

Words and music by Hank Williams, Sr.

Like a bird that's lost its mate in flight
I'm alone and oh so blue tonight
Like a piece of driftwood on the sea
May you never be alone like me.

I believed the lies you told to me
When you whispered dear, "I worship thee"
Now here am I alone and blue
All because I loved no one but you.

You're beautiful, that's for sure
You'll never ever fade
You're lovely, but it's not for sure
That I won't ever change
And though my love is rare
Though my love is true

I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away
I don't know where my soul is
I don't know where my home is
(And baby all I need for you to know is)

Nelly Furtado

She falls and she falls but never laughs
In the arms of the one she wants
Fights for a dream she's never seen
In a world of rocks and stones
Ands she knows it's there, knows it does exist
A feeling oh so real, almost divine bliss
Takes her breath away, a gem beyond compare
Makes her weak in the knees, she knows that love is rare

A taste of honey... tasting much sweeter than wine.
I dream of your first kiss, and then,
I feel upon my lips again,
A taste of honey... tasting much sweeter than wine.
I will return, yes I will return,
I'll come back for the honey and you.
Yours was the kiss that awoke my heart,
There lingers still, 'though we're far apart,
That taste of honey... tasting much sweeter than wine.
I will return, yes I will return,
I'll come back (he'll come back) for the honey (for the honey) and you.

Maybe you'll wanna give me kisses sweet
But only for one night and no repeat
And maybe you'll go away and never call
And a taste of honey's worse than none at all

Oh little girl, in that case I don't want no part
I do believe that, that would only break my heart
Oh, but if you feel like lovin' me
If you got the notion
I second that emotion

Oh, my darling,
Knock three times
On the ceiling if you want me.
Mm-hmm, twice on the pipe
If the answer is no.

Means you'll meet me
In the hallway.

Means you ain't gonna show.

knock....Oh, my darling

First written in 1885, with the melody written by Barker Bradford, the verses have changed throughout the years. Here is the one I am used to hearing:

In a cavern, in a canyon,
Excavating for a mine,
Dwelt a miner, forty-niner,
And his daughter Clementine.

Oh my darling, oh my darling,
Oh my darling Clementine
You are lost and gone forever,
Dreadful sorry, Clementine
