(1) EVERYBODY'S TALKING (Fred Neil)

Everybody's talking at me

But I don't hear a word they're saying

Only the echos of my mind

People stopping, staring

But I can't see their faces

Only the shadows of their eyes

I'm going where the sun keeps shining

Through the pouring rain

Going where the weather fits my clothes

Backing off from the northeast wind

Sailing on summer breeze

Skipping over the ocean like a stone

 

(2) BENNIE AND THE JETS (Elton John, Bernie Taupin)

Hey kids, shake it loose together

The spotlight's hitting something

That's been known to change the weather

We'll kill the fatted calf tonight

So stick around

You're gonna hear electric music

Solid walls of sound

Say, Candy and Ronnie, have you seen them yet

But they're so spaced out, Bennie and the Jets

Oh but they're weird and they're wonderful

Oh Bennie she's really keen

She's got electric boots a mohair suit

You know I read it in a magazine

Bennie and the Jets

Hey kids, plug into the faithless

Maybe they're blinded

But Bennie makes them ageless

We shall survive, let us take ourselves along

Where we fight our parents out in the streets

To find who's right and who's wrong

 

(3) SUMMER BREEZE (Jim Seals, Dash Crofts)

See the curtains hanging in the window

In the evening on a Friday night

A little light a shining through the window

Lets me know everything's alright

Chorus:

Summer breeze makes me feel fine

Blowing through the jasmine in my mind (2x)

See the paper laying in the sidewalk

A little music from the house next door

So I walk on up to the doorstep

Through the screen and across the floor

Chorus

Sweet days of summer, the jasmine in bloom

July is dressed up and playing her tune

And I come home from a hard day's work

And you're waiting there, not a care in the world

See the smile awaiting in the kitchen

Food cooking and plates for two

Feel the arms that reach out to hold me

In the evening when the day is through

Chorus

 

(4) NORWEGIAN WOOD (John Lennon, Paul McCartney)

I once had a girl, or should I say, she once had me.

She showed me her room, isn't it good, norwegian wood?

She asked me to stay and she told me to sit anywhere,

So I looked around and I noticed there wasn't a chair.

I sat on a rug, biding my time, drinking her wine.

We talked until two and then she said, "It's time for bed".

She told me she worked in the morning and started to laugh.

I told her I didn't and crawled off to sleep in the bath.

And when I awoke I was alone, this bird had flown.

So I lit a fire, isn't it good, norwegian wood.

 

(5) SOMETIMES IT SNOWS IN APRIL

(Prince, Rogers Nelson, Wendy Melvoin, Lisa Coleman)

Tracy died soon after a long fought civil war,

just after I'd wiped away his last tear

I guess he's better off now than he was before,

A whole lot better off than the fools he left here

I used to cry for Tracy because he was my only friend

Those kind of cars don't pass u every day

I used to cry for Tracy because I wanted to see him again,

But sometimes sometimes life ain't always the way...

Sometimes it snows in April

Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad

Sometimes I wish that life was never ending,

But all good things, they say, never last

Springtime was always my favorite time of year

A time for lovers holding hands in the rain

Now springtime only reminds me of Tracy's tears

Always cry for love, never cry for pain

He used to say so strong, "Oh, I'm not afraid to die"

Unafraid of the death that left me hypnotized

You know, staring at his picture I realize

No one could cry the way my Tracy cried

Sometimes it snows in April

Sometimes I feel so bad

Sometimes I wish that life was never ending

But all good things, they say, never last

I often dream of heaven and I know that Tracy's there

I know that he has found another friend

Maybe he's found the answer to all the April snow

Maybe one day I'll see my Tracy again

Sometimes it snows in April

Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad

Sometimes I wish that life was never ending

But all good things, they say, never last

All good things that say, never last

And love, it isn't love until it's past

 

(6) FIFTY WAYS TO LEAVE YOUR LOVER (Paul Simon)

"The problem is all inside your head", she said to me

"The answer is easy if you take it logically

I'm here to help you if you're struggling to be free

There must be fifty ways to leave your lover"

She said "It's really not my habit to intrude

For the more I hope my meaning won't be lost or misconstrued

But I'll repeat myself, at the risk of being crude

There must be fifty ways to leave your lover

fifty ways to leave your lover

Chorus:

Just slip out the back, Jack

Make a new plan, Stan

You don't need to be coy, Roy

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 so to see you in such pain

I wish there was something I could do to make you smile again"

I said, "I appreciate that, then would you please explain About the fifty ways?"

She said, "Why don't we both just sleep on it tonight

I'm sure 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

chorus

 

(7) I'M HAVING A GAY TIME (Alberta Hunter)

After tonight, after tonight

Consider me gone

I'm having a good time

Please don't blame me

I'm knocking myself out

Don't you try to tame me

Let me have my fun

I ought to have my flame

Some folks say I'm blowing the top off

But talk don't mean a thing

I'm living my life while I'm living

Tomorrow I may die

That's why I'm having a ball today

I ain't passing nothing by

So if I make my bed high

That's my problem, let me lay

Having a good time living my life today

 

(8) THAT'S WHY GOD MADE THE MOVIES (Paul Simon)

When I was born my mother died

She said bye bye baby, bye bye

I said, "Where you going?

I'm just born"

She said I'll only be gone for a while

My mother loved to leave in style

That's why God made the movies

Well I laid around in my swaddling clothes

Until the doctor came and turned out the light

Then I packed my bag

And my nametag

And stole away into the night

Hoping things would work out right

That's why God made the movies

Say you will, say you will

Say you'll take me to your loving breast

Say you'll nourish me with your tenderness

The way the ladies sometimes do

Say you won't, say you won't

Say you won't leave me for no other man

Say you'll love me just the way I am

Say you'll love me

Say you will, say you will

When I was born my mother died

She said bye bye baby, bye bye

And since that day

I've paid my way

The notorious boy of the wild

Adopted by the wolves when he was a child That's why God. That's why God.

That's why God made the movies

 

(9) WALKING AWAY BLUES (Sonny Terry, Ry Cooder)

You can't plant cotton

And fix to have a tongue

You can't right people and make them wrong

Keep on walking

Walking my blues away

Well the sun is gonna shine on my backdoor someday

I once had a car

It was painted white and black

Couldn't keep up the payment

The man they took it back

Keep on walkin'

Walkin' my blues away

Well the sun is gonna shine on my backdoor someday

You know something people

That really gave me the blues

Didn't have no bottom on my walking shoes

Keep on walking

Walking my blues away

Well the sun is gonna shine on my backdoor someday

 

(10) STILL... YOU TURN ME ON (Greg Lake)

Do you want to be an angel?

Do you want to be a star?

Do you want to play some magic on my guitar?

Do you want to be a poet?

Do you want to be my string?

You could be anything

Do you want to be the lover

of another undercover?

You could even be the man on the moon

Do you want to be the player?

Do you want to be the string?

Let me tell you something

It just don't mean a thing

You see it really doesn't matter

When you're buried in disguise

By the dark glass of your eyes

Though your flesh has crystallised

Still... you turn me on

Do you want to be the pillow where I lay my head?

Do you want to be the feathers lying in my bed?

Do you want to be a colour cover magazine?

Create a scene

Every day a little sadder

A little madder

Someone get me a ladder

Do you want to be the singer?

Do you want to be the song?

Let me tell you something

You just couldn't be more wrong

You see I really have to tell you

That it all gets so intense

From my experience

It just doesn't seem to make sense

Still... you turn me on

 

(11) COOL WATER (Bob Nolan, revised lyrics by Joni Mitchell)

All day I face the barren waste

Without a taste of water, cool water

Old Dan and I, our throats slate dry

Our spirits cry out for water

Cool, clear water

Keep on movin' Dan, some devils had a plan

Buried poison in the sand, don't drink it man

It's in the water

Cool, clear water

In my mind I see a big green tree

And a river flowing free, waiting up ahead

For you and me

Cool, clear water

The nights are cool and I'm a fool

Each star is a pool of water

Cool water

But come the dawn

We carry on

We won't last long without water

Cool, clear water

Keep on moving Dan, we're still in no man's land

Dry bones and sand

People never planned here for water

Cool clear water

In my mind I see a big green tree

And a river flowing free, waiting up ahead

For you and me

Cool, clear water

The shadows sway, they seem to say

Tonight we pray for water

Cool water

And way up there, if you care

Please show us where there's good water

Cool, clear water

 

(12) VENTURA HIGHWAY (Deney Bunnel)

Chewing on a piece of grass

Walking down the road

Tell me, how long you're gonna stay here, Joe?

Some people say this town don't look good in snow

You don't care, I know

Ventura Highway, in the sunshine

Where the days are longer

The nights are stronger than moonshine

You're gonna go, I know

'Cause the free wind is blowing through your hair

And the days surround your daylights there

Seasons crying, no despair

Alligator lizards in the air

Wishing on a falling star

Waiting for the early train

Sorry boy, but I've been hit by purple rain

Aw, come on Joe, you can always change your name

Thanks a lot son, just the same

Ventura Highway in the sunshine

Where the days are longer

The nights are stronger than moonshine

You're gonna go, I know

'Cause the free wind is blowing through your hair

And the days surround your daylights there

seasons crying, no despair

Alligator lizards in the air

in the air

 

(13) I SHOT THE SHERIFF (Bob Marley)

I shot the sheriff

but I didn't shoot the deputy

I shot the sheriff

but I didn't shoot no 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 defence

I shot the sheriff

And they say it is a capital offence

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"

But I say

I shot the sheriff

But I swear it was in self defence

I shot the sheriff

But I swear it was in self defence

Freedom came my way one day

And I started out of town

All of a sudden I see sheriff John Brown

He was aiming to shoot me down

So I shot, I shot him down

But I say

I shot the sheriff

But I didn't shoot the deputy

I shot the sheriff

But I didn't shoot the deputy

Reflexes are the better of me

And what is to be must to be.

Every day the bucket goes to the well

But I say one day the bottom will drop out

Yes, one day the bottom will drop out

But I say

I shot the sheriff

But I didn't shoot the deputy

I shot the sheriff

But I didn't shoot the deputy.

 

(14) RUBY TUESDAY (Mick Jagger, Keith Richards)

She would never say where she came from

Yesterday don't matter if it's gone

While the sun is bright or in the darkest night

No one knows, she comes and goes

Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday

Who could hang a name on you

When you changed with every new day

Still I'm gonna miss you

Don't ask her why she needs to be so free

She'll tell you it's the only way to be

She just can't be chained to a life where nothing's gained

And nothing's lost at such a cost

Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday

Who could hang a name on you

When you changed with every new day

Still I'm gonna miss you

There's no time to lose, I heard her say

Cash your dreams before they slip away

Dying all the time, lose your dreams and you

Will lose your mind, ain't life unkind

Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday

Who could hang a name on you

When you changed with every new day

Still I'm gonna miss you

Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday

Who could hang a name on you

When you changed with every new day

Still I'm gonna miss you
