The 50's Medley

Twistin' the Night Away

originally sung by Sam Cooke

Let me tell you about a place, somewhere up in New York way

where the people are so gay, twistin' the night away

Here they have a lot of fun, puttin' trouble on the run

Oh man you'll find the old and young twistin' the night away

Here's a man in evening clothes, how he got here I don't know

but oh man, you ought to see him go, twistin' the night away

He's dancing with a chick in slacks, she's moving up and back

Oh man, there ain't nothing like twistin' the night away

Guitar...

Feel much better...

Here's a fellow in blue jeans, who's dancing with an older queen

Cat's dolled up in her diamond rings, twistin' the night away

Man you ought to see her go, twistin' to the rock and roll

Here you'll find the young and the old twistin' the night away

They're twistin', twistin', everybody's doing great

They're twistin' man, twistin', they're twistin' the night away

Twistin', you know they're twistin', twistin' the night away

They're twistin', twistin', man twistin' the night away

Here they have a lot of fun, puttin' trouble on the run

Oh man you'll find young and the old twistin' the night away

Here's a man in evening clothes, how he got here I don't know

I don't know but man you ought to see him go

Twistin' the night away

At the Hop

originally sung by Danny and the Juniors

Bah-bah-bah-bah, bah-bah-bah-bah

Bah-bah-bah-bah. bah-bah-bah-bah, at the hop!

Johnny be Good

originally sung by Chuck Berry

Deep down in Louisiana close to New Orleans

Way back up in the woods among the evergreens

Stood a log cabin made of earth and wood

Where lived a country boy named Johnny B. Good

Who never ever learned to read or write so well

But he could play the guitar just like ringing a bell

Go, go, go Johnny go, go, go Johnny, go go

Go Johnny go, go, go Johnny go go

Johnny B. Good

His mama told him "someday you will be a man

And you will be the leader of a big old band

Many people coming from miles around

To hear your playing music when the sun goes down

Maybe someday you name will be in lights saying 'Johnny B. Good tonight' "

Go, go, go Johnny go, go, go Johnny, go go

Go Johnny go, go, go Johnny go go

Johnny B. Good

His mama told him "someday you will be a man

And you will be the leader of a big old band

Many people coming from miles around

To hear your playing music when the sun goes down

Maybe someday you name will be in lights saying 'Johnny B. Good tonight' "

Go, go, go Johnny go, go, go Johnny, go go

Go Johnny go, go, go Johnny go go

Johnny B. Good

The Great Pretender

by The Platters

Oh yes I'm the great pretender

Pretending that I'm doin' well

My need is such, I pretend too much

I'm lonely, but no one can tell

Oh yes I'm the great pretender

Adrift in a world of my own

I play the game but to my real shame

You left me to dream alone

Too real is this feelin' of make believe

Too real what I feel, what my heart can't conceal

Oh yes I'm the great pretender

Just laughing and gay like a clown

I seem to be what I'm not, you see

I'm wearing my heart like a crown

Pretending that you're still around

Too real is this feelin' of make believe

Too real what I feel, what my heart can't conceal

Oh yes I'm the great pretender

Pretending that you're still around

Pretending that you're still around

Pretending that you're still around

Only You

by the Platters

Only you can make this world seem right

Only you can make the darkness bright

Only you and you alone

Can thrill me like you do

And fill my heart with love for only you

Only you, only you can make this change in me

For it's true you are my destiny

When you hold my hand I understand

The magic that you do

You're my dream come true

My one and only you

Only you, only you can make this change in me

For it's true, oh baby you are my destiny

When you hold my hand I understand

The magic that you do

You're my dream come true

My one and only you

Mr. Sandman

Mister Sandman, bring me a dream

Make him the cutest boy that I've ever seen

Give him two lips like roses in clover

Then tell me that my lonesome nights are over

Mister Sandman, I'm so alone

Don't have a boyfriend to call my own

Please turn on your magic beam

Mister Sandman, bring us a dream

Mister Sandman, bring me a dream

Please make him gargle, and brush with Gleem

Give him a lonely heart like Pagliacci,

But not as closeted as Liberace!

Mister Sandman, bring me a "he"

Give him a basket... of flowers for me

Please turn on your magic beam

Mister Sandman, bring us

Please please bring us

Mister Sandman, bring us a dream (a dream)

A dream (a dream)

Mister Sandman, (Yes) I need a man (What kind of man?)

No one psychotic or Republican (I'll do what I can)

Give him two legs, like Greg Lougainis

But make him public about his gayness!

Mister Sandman (Sandman), won't you believe

We want a Superman like Christopher Reeve

Some one who will make us scream (Ahhhh!)

Mister Sandman, bring us

Please please bring us

Mister Sandman, bring us a dream (a dream)

Mister Sandman, bring us a....

A dream

That'll Be The Day

by Buddy Holly

That’ll be the day - when you say goodbye

that’ll be the day - when you make me cry

you say you’re gonna leave - you know it’s a lie cause

that’ll be the day when I die

Well, you give me all your loving and your turtle-dovin’

all your hugs and kisses and your money too, we-hella

you know you love me baby - until you tell me maybe

that someday well, I’ll be through

When Cupid shot his dart - he shot it at your heart

so if we ever part and I leave you

you sit and hold me and you tell me boldly

that someday well, I’ll be blue

That’ll be the day - woo hoo

that’ll be the day - woo hoo

that’ll be the day - woo hoo

that’ll be the day

Great Balls of Fire

by Jerry Lee Lewis

You shake my nerves and you rattle my brain

Too much love drives a man insane

You broke my will

Goodness gracious great balls of fire!

(piano solo)

Wellll kiss me baby...mmmmm...feels good

Hold me baby

Got to tell this world that you're mine mine mine mine

I chew my nails and I twiddle my thumbs

C'mon baby, you drive me crazy

Goodness gracious great balls of fire!

Rockin' Roll Is Here To Stay

by Danny and the Juniors

Rock 'n roll is here to stay,

it will never die

It was meant to be that way,

though I don't know why

I don't care what people say,

rock 'n roll is here to stay

(We don't care what people say, rock 'n roll is here to stay)

Rock 'n roll will always be

our ticket to the end

It will go down in history,

just you wait, my friend

Rock 'n roll will always be,

it'll go down in history

(Rock 'n roll will always be, it'll go down in history)

So come on,

everybody rock,

everybody rock,

everybody rock,

everybody rock

Everybody rock

Now everybody rock 'n roll,

everybody rock 'n roll,

everybody rock 'n roll

Everybody rock 'n roll,

everybody rock 'n roll

Rock 'n roll will always be

our ticket to the end

It will go down in history,

just you wait, my friend

Rock 'n roll will always be,

it'll go down in history

If you don't like rock 'n roll,

think what you've been missin'

But if you like to bop and strawl,

come on down and listen

Let's all start to have a ball,

everybody rock 'n roll

Ah, oh baby, ah, oh baby, ah, oh baby, ah, oh baby, rock!

(BANTER)

Unchained Melody

Whoa! My love, my darling,

I hunger for your touch,

Alone. Lonely time.

And time goes by, so slowly,

And time can do so much,

Are you still mine?

I need your love.

I need your love.

God speed your love to me.

Lonely rivers flow to the sea, to the sea,

To the open arms of the sea.

Lonely rivers sigh, wait for me, wait for me,

I'll be coming home, wait for me.

Whoa! My love, my darling,

I hunger, hunger!, for your love,

For love. Lonely time.

And time goes by, so slowly,

And time can do so much,

Are you still mine?

I need your love.

I need your love.

God speed your love to me.

Baby it's still you I'm thinking of

Heartbreak Hotel

Well, since my baby left me,

I found a new place to dwell.

It's down at the end of lonely street

at Heartbreak Hotel.

You make me so lonely baby,

I get so lonely,

I get so lonely I could die.

And although it's always crowded,

you still can find some room.

Where broken hearted lovers

do cry away their gloom.

You make me so lonely baby,

I get so lonely,

I get so lonely I could die.

Well, the Bell hop's tears keep flowin',

and the desk clerk's dressed in black.

Well they been so long on lonely street

They ain't ever gonna look back.

You make me so lonely baby,

I get so lonely,

I get so lonely I could die.

Hey now, if your baby leaves you,

and you got a tale to tell.

Just take a walk down lonely street

to Heartbreak Hotel

Jail House Rock

The warden threw a party in the county jail.

The prison band was there and they began to wail.

The band was jumpin' and the joint began to swing.

You should've heard those knocked out jailbirds sing.

Let's rock, everybody, let's rock.

Everybody in the whole cell block

was dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock.

Spider Murphy played the tenor saxophone,

Little Joe was blowin' on the slide trombone.

The drummer boy from Illinois went crash, boom, bang,

the whole rhythm section was the Purple Gang.

Let's rock, everybody, let's rock.

Everybody in the whole cell block

was dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock.

Number forty-seven said to number three:

"You're the cutest jailbird I ever did see.

I sure would be delighted with your company,

come on and do the Jailhouse Rock with me."

Let's rock, everybody, let's rock.

Everybody in the whole cell block

was dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock.

The sad sack was a sittin' on a block of stone

way over in the corner weepin' all alone.

The warden said, "Hey, buddy, don't you be no square.

If you can't find a partner use a wooden chair."

Let's rock, everybody, let's rock.

Everybody in the whole cell block

was dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock.

Shifty Henry said to Bugs, "For Heaven's sake,

no one's lookin', now's our chance to make a break."

Bugsy turned to Shifty and he said, "Nix nix,

I wanna stick around a while and get my kicks."

Let's rock, everybody, let's rock.

Everybody in the whole cell block

was dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock

I Can't Help Falling In Love With You

Wise men say

Only fools rush in

But I can?t help falling in love with you

Shall I stay

Would it be a sin?

If I can?t help falling in love with you

Like a river flows

Surely to the sea

Darling so it goes

Some things are meant to be

Take my hand

Take my whole life too

For I can?t help

Falling in love with you

Like a river flows

Surely to the sea

Darling so it goes

Some things are meant to be

Take my hand

Take my whole life too

For I can?t help

Falling in love with you

For I can?t help

Falling in love with you

Suspicious Minds

We're caught in a trap

I can't walk out

Because I love you too much baby

Why can't you see

What you're doing to me

When you don't believe a word I say?

We can't go on together

With suspicious minds

And we can't build our dreams

On suspicious minds

So, if an old friend I know

Drops by to say hello

Would I still see suspicion in your eyes?

Here we go again

Asking where I've been

You can't see these tears are real

I'm crying

We can't go on together

With suspicious minds

And be can't build our dreams

On suspicious minds

Oh let our love survive

Or dry the tears from your eyes

Let's don't let a good thing die

When honey, you know

I've never lied to you

Mmm yeah, yeah

1960's

Daydream Believer

by the Monkees

Oh, I could hide ’neath the wings

Of the bluebird as she sings.

The six o’clock alarm would never ring.

Whoops it’s ringing and I rise,

Wipe the sleep out of my eyes.

My shavin’ razor’s cold and it stings.

Cheer up, sleepy jean.

Oh, what can it mean.

To a daydream believer

And a homecoming queen.

You once thought of me

As a white knight on a steed.

Now you know how happy I can be.

Oh, and our good times starts and end

Without dollar one to spend.

But how much, baby, do we really need.

Cheer up, sleepy jean.

Oh, what can it mean.

To a daydream believer

And a homecoming queen.

Cheer up, sleepy jean.

Oh, what can it mean.

To a daydream believer

And a homecoming queen.

[instrumental interlude]

Cheer up, sleepy jean.

Oh, what can it mean.

To a daydream believer

And a homecoming queen.

[repeat and fade]

Downtown

by Petula Clark

When you're alone and life is making you lonely

You can always go - downtown

When you've got worries, all the noise and the hurry

Seems to help, I know - downtown

Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city

Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty

How can you lose?

The lights are much brighter there

You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares

So go downtown, things'll be great when you're

Downtown - no finer place, for sure

Downtown - everything's waiting for you

Don't hang around and let your problems surround you

There are movie shows - downtown

Maybe you know some little places to go to

Where they never close - downtown

Just listen to the rhythm of a gentle bossa nova

You'll be dancing with him too before the night is over

Happy again

The lights are much brighter there

You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares

So go downtown, where all the lights are bright

Downtown - waiting for you tonight

Downtown - you're gonna be all right now

------ instrumental break ------

And you may find somebody kind to help and understand you

Someone who is just like you and needs a gentle hand to

Guide them along

So maybe I'll see you there

We can forget all our troubles, forget all our cares

So go downtown, things'll be great when you're

Downtown - don't wait a minute more

Downtown - everything's waiting for you

Downtown, downtown, downtown, downtown ...

Can't Buy Me Love

by the Beatles

Can't buy me love, love

Can't buy me love

I'll buy you a diamond ring my friend if it makes you feel alright

I'll get you anything my friend if it makes you feel alright

'Cause I don't care too much for money, money can't buy me love

I'll give you all I got to give if you say you love me too

I may not have a lot to give but what I got I'll give to you

I don't care too much for money, money can't buy me love

Can't buy me love, everybody tells me so

Can't buy me love, no no no, no

Say you don't need no diamond ring and I'll be satisfied

Tell me that you want the kind of thing that money just can't buy

I don't care too much for money, money can't buy me love

Honey,

Oh, Sugar, Sugar.

Happy Together

by the Turtles

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

If 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

{Refrain}

I can't see me loving 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 tossed the dice

It had to be

The only one for me is you

And you for me

So happy together

{Refrain}

Me and you

And you and me

No matter how they tossed the dice

It had to be

The only one for me is you

And you for me

So happy together

Me and you

And you and me

No matter how they tossed the dice

It had to be

The only one for me is you

And you for me

So happy together

So happy together

How is the weather

So happy together

We're happy together

So happy together...

Solitaire

by Neil Sedaka

There was a man, a lonely man

Who lost his love through his indifference

A heart that cared, that went unshared

Until it died in his silence

And Solitaire's the only game in town

And every road that takes him, takes him down

And by himself, it's easy to pretend

He'll never love again

And keeping to himself he plays the game

Without her love it always ends the same

While life goes on around him everywhere

He's playing Solitaire

Another day, a lonely day

So much to say that goes unspoken

And through the night, his sleepless nights

His eyes are closed, his heart is broken

And Solitaire's the only game in town

And every road that takes him, takes him down

And by himself it's easy to pretend

She's coming back again

And keeping to himself he plays the game

Without her love it always ends the same

While life goes on around him everywhere

He's playing Solitaire

A little hope, goes up in smoke

Just how it goes, goes without saying

Solitaireee

And by himself it's easy to pretend

He'll never love again

Ohhh

And keeping to himself he plays the game

Without her love it always ends the same

While life goes on around him everywhere

He's playing Solitaire

Solitaire, solitaire

1960's Medley (Motown and more)

Where Did Our Love Go? (Angela)

by the Supremes

Baby, baby

Baby don’t leave me

Ooh, please don’t leave me

All by myself

I’ve got this burning, burning

Yearning feelin’ inside me

Ooh, deep inside me

And it hurts so bad

You came into my heart

So tenderly

With a burning love

That stings like a bee

Now that I surrender

So helplessly

You now wanna leave

Ooh, you wanna leave me

Ooh, baby, baby

Where did our love go?

Ooh, don’t you want me

Don’t you want me no more

Ooh, baby

Baby, baby

Where did our love go

And all your promisses

Of a love forever more

I’ve got this burning, burning

Yearning feelin’ inside me

Ooh, deep inside me

And it hurts so bad

Before you won my heart

You were a perfect guy

But now that you got me

You wanna leave me behind

Baby, baby, ooh baby

Baby, baby don’t leave me

Ooh, please don’t leave me

All by myself

Ooh, baby, baby

Where did our love go?

Ooo, that someday he'd be a star (a superstar but he didn't get far)

But he sure found out the hard way

That dreams don't always come true(dreams don't always come true)

oh no(uh uh) uh uh (no uh uh)

So he pawned all his hopes (woo, woo, woo)

And he even sold his own car (woo, woo, woo)

Bought a one way ticket back

To the life, he once knew

Oh yes he did, he said he would

I know he's leaving (leaving)

On that midnight train to Georgia (leaving on that midnight train)

Yeah, ooh ya'll, said he's going back to find (going back to find)

Ooo, a simpler place and time (whenever he takes that ride)

Ooh ya'll, uh huh (guess who's gonna be right by his side)

I've got to be with him (I know you will)

On that midnight train to Georgia (leaving on the midnight train to Georgia, whoo whoo)

I'd rather live in his world (live in his world)

Than live without him in mine (her, world, is his, his and hers alone)

Hey hey hey (our love)

Our love (gonna board)

Gonna board on the midnight train and ride

Our love (our love)

Gonna board (gonna board)

Gotta board on the midnight train and go

Our love (our love)

Gonna board (gonna board)

Uh huh, on the midnight train and go

My world (our love)

His world (gonna board)

Our world (the midnight train to go)

Mine and his alone

My world (our love)

His world (gonna board)

Our world (the midnight train to go)

Mine and his alone

I got to go (our love)

I got to go (gonna board)

I got to go (the midnight train to go)

Hey!

I got to go (our love)

I got to go (gonna board)

Mmm mmm (the midnight train to go)

My world (our love)

His world (gonna board)

My man (the midnight train to go)

His girl

I got to go (our love)

I got to go (gonna board)

Oww (the midnight train to go)

My world (our love)

His world (gonna board)

Our world (the midnight train to go)

Mine and his alone

My Girl

by the Temptations

I've got sunshine on a cloudy day.

When it's cold outside I've got the month of May.

I guess you'd say

What can make me feel this way?

My girl (my girl, my girl)

Talkin' 'bout my girl (my girl).

I've got so much honey the bees envy me.

I've got a sweeter song than the birds in the trees.

I guess you'd say

What can make me feel this way?

My girl (my girl, my girl)

Talkin' 'bout my girl (my girl).

Hey hey hey

Hey hey hey

Ooooh.

I don't need no money, fortune, or fame.

I've got all the riches baby one man can claim.

I guess you'd say

What can make me feel this way?

My girl (my girl, my girl)

Talkin' 'bout my girl (my girl).

I've got sunshine on a cloudy day

with my girl.

I've even got the month of May

with my girl (fade)

Tears of a Clown

by Smokey Robinson and the Miracles

Now if there's a smile on my face,

it's only there tryin' to fool the public,

but when it comes down to foolin' you;

Now honey, that's quite a different subject.

But don't let my glad expression

give you the wrong impression.

Really I'm sad.

I'm sadder than sad.

You're gone and I'm hurtin' so bad.

Like a clown I pretend to be glad.

(chorus)

Now there's some sad things known to man,

but ain't too much sadder than

the tears of a clown

when there's no one around.

Now if I appear to be carefree,

it's only to camouflage my sadness.

In order to keep my pride I try

to cover the hurt with a show of gladness.

But don't let my show convince you

that I've been happy since you

decided to go.

Oh, I need you so.

I'm hurt and I want you to know.

(chorus)

Just like Pagliacci did,

I try to keep my sadness hid.

(aaargh! I can't remember! It'll come to me and I'll send it along.)

But in my lonely room I cry

the tears of a clown

when there's no one around.

Heard it Through the Grapevine (Jacob)

by Marvin Gaye

I bet you wonderin' how I knew

'bout your planes to make me blue

Whith some other guy you knew before

Between two of us guys you know I love you more

It took me by surprise

I must say

When I found you yesterday

Don't you know that

I heard it through the grapevine,

not much longer would you be mine

uhh uhh heard it through the grapevine

Oh I'm just about to lose my mind

Honey honey, oh baby

ooh ooh honey honey

I know a man ain't supposed to cry

But these tears

I can't hold inside

Losin' you

Would end my life you see

Cause you mean that much to me

You could have told me yourself

That you loved someone else

Instead

I heard it through the grapevine

Not much longer would you be mine

Ohh I heard it thought the grapevine

And I'm just about to lose my mind

Honey honey

People say believe half of what you see

Oh, and none of what your hear

But I can't help but be confused

If it's true please tell me dear

Do you plan to let me go

For the other guy you loved before?

I'll be There

The Four Tops

Now if you feel that you can't go on

Because all your hope is gone

And your life is filled with confusion

And happiness is just an illusion

And your world around is tumblin' down

Darling, reach out

Reach out, for me.

I'll be there to love and confort you...(tell me baby)

I'll be there with the love I'll see you through

Now when you're lost and about to give up

'cause your best just ain't good enough

and you feel the world has grown cold

and you're driftin' on your own

when you need a hand to hold

darling, reach out

reach out, for me.

I'll be there to love and confort you

I'll be there with the love I'll see you through

I'll be there to love and confort you

I'll be there to with the love I'll see you through

I can tell you the way I hang your head

Now with out of love , now you're afraid

And through your tears you look around

But there's no peace of mind to be found

I know what you're thinking

Witout love, now you're alone

Baby, reach out

Reach out for me

I'll be there to love and confort you

I'll be there with the Love I'll see you through

I'll be there to love and confort you ...(tell me baby)

I'll be there to always see you through...(i'll be there)

I'll be there to love and confort you

I'll be there with the love I'll see you through.

Think

by Aretha Franklin

Think (think) think (think) think (think)

think (think) think (think) think (think)

You better think (think) think about what you're trying to do to me

Yeah, think (think, think), let your mind go, let yourself be free

Let's go back, let's go back, let's go way on back when

I didn't even know you, you couldn't've been too much more than ten

I ain't no psychiatrist, I ain't no doctor with degree

It don't take too much high IQ's to see what you're doing to me

You better think (think) think about what you're trying to do to me

Yeah, think (think, think), let your mind go, let yourself be free

Oh freedom (freedom), freedom (freedom), freedom, yeah freedom

Freedom (freedom), freedom (freedom), freedom, ooh freedom

There ain't nothing you could ask I could answer you but I won't (I won't)

I was gonna change, but I'm not, to keep doing things I don't

You better think (think) think about what you're trying to do to me

Yeah, think (think, think), let your mind go, let yourself be free

People walking around everyday, playing games that they can score

And I ain't gonna be the loser my way, ah, be careful you don't lose yours

You better think (think) think about what you're trying to do to me

Yeah, think (think, think), let your mind go, let yourself be free

You need me (need me) and I need you (don't you know)

Without eachother there ain't nothing people can do

Oh freedom (freedom), freedom (freedom), freedom, yeah freedom

Freedom (freedom), freedom (freedom), freedom, ooh freedom

There ain't nothing you could ask I could answer you but I won't (I won't)

I was gonna change, but I'm not, if you're doing things I don't

You better think (think) think about what you're trying to do to me

Yeah, think (think, think), let your mind go, let yourself be free

You need me (need me) and I need you (don't you know)

Without eachother there ain't nothing people can do

(Think about - ah me, think about - ah me,

think about - ah me, think about it)

(Think about - ah me, think about - ah me,

think about - ah me, think about it)

(Think about - ah me, think about - ah me,

think about - ah me, think about it)

(Think about - ah me, think about - ah me,

think about - ah me, think about it)

You had better stop and think before you think, think!!

Ain't No Mountain High Enough (Clay/Angela)

by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell

Listen, baby

Ain’t no mountain high

Ain’t no vally low

Ain’t no river wide enough, baby

If you need me, call me

No matter where you are

No matter how far

Just call my name

I’ll be there in a hurry

You don’t have to worry

’cause baby,

There ain’t no mountain high enough

Ain’t no valley low enough

Ain’t no river wide enough

To keep me from getting to you

Remember the day

I set you free

I told you

You could always count on me

From that day on I made a vow

I’ll be there when you want me

Some way,some how

’cause baby,

There ain’t no mountain high enough

Ain’t no valley low enough

Ain’t no river wide enough

To keep me from getting to you

No wind, no rain

My love is alive

Way down in my heart

Although we are miles apart

If you ever need a helping hand

I’ll be there on the double

As fast as I can

Don’t you know that

There ain’t no mountain high enough

Ain’t no valley low enough

Ain’t no river wide enough

To keep me from getting to you

Don’t you know that

There ain’t no mountain high enough

Ain’t no valley low enough

Ain’t no river wide enough

December 1963 (Oh What A Night)

The Four Seasons

Oh, what a night, late December back in '63

What a very special time for me

As I remember what a night!

Oh what a night,

You know I didn't even know her name

But I was never gonna be the same

What a lady, what a night!

Oh, I got a funny feeling when she walked in the room

And I, as I recall it ended much too soon

September

by Earth Wind and Fire

Do you remember the 21st night of September?

Love was changing the minds of pretenders

While chasing the clouds away

Our hearts were ringing

In the key that our souls were singing.

As we danced in the night,

Remember how the stars stole the night away

Ba de ya - say do you remember

Ba de ya - dancing in September

Ba de ya - never was a cloudy day

My thoughts are with you

Holding hands with your heart to see you

Only blue talk and love,

Remember how we knew love was here to stay

Now December found the love that we shared in September.

Only blue talk and love,

Remember the true love we share today

Ba de ya - say do you remember

Ba de ya - dancing in September

Ba de ya - never was a cloudy day

Ba de ya - say do you remember

Ba de ya - dancing in September

Ba de ya - golden dreams were shiny days

Nights On Broadway

by the Bee Gees

Here we are in the room full of strangers,

Standing in the dark where your eyes couldn't see me

Well, I have to follow you

Though you didn't want me to.

But that won't stop my lovin' you

I can't stay away

Blaming it all on the nights on Broadway

Singin' them love songs,

Singin' them straight to the heart songs.

Blamin' it all on the nights on Broadway

Singin' them sweet sounds

To that crazy, crazy town.

Now in my place

There are so many others

Standin' in the line;

How long will they stand between us?

Well, I have to follow you

Though you didn't want me to.

But that won't stop my lovin' you

I can't stay away

Blaming it all on the nights on Broadway

Singin' them love songs,

Singin' them straight to the heart songs.

Blamin' it all on the nights on Broadway

Singin' them sweet sounds

To that crazy, crazy town.

I will wait,

even if it takes forever;

I will wait,

even if it takes a life time.

Somehow I feel inside

You never ever left my side.

Make it like it was before

Even if it takes a life time, takes a life time.

Blaming it all on the nights on Broadway

Singin' them love songs,

Singin' them straight to the heart songs.

Blamin' it all on the nights on Broadway

Singin' them sweet sounds

To that crazy, crazy town

Too Much Heaven

by the Bee Gees

Nobody gets too much heaven no more

It's much harder to come by

I'm waiting in line

Nobody gets too much love anymore

It's as high as a mountain

And harder to climb

Oh you and me girl

Got a lot of love in store

And it flows through you

And it flows through me

And I love you so much more

Then my life..I can see beyond forever

Ev'rything we are will never die

Loving's such a beautiful thing

Oh you make my world.. a summer day

Are you just a dream to fade away

Chorus..

You and me girl got a highway to the sky

We can turn away from the night and day

And the tears you had to cry

You're my life..

I can see a new tomorrow

Ev'rything we are will never die

Loving's such a beautiful thing

When you are to me, the light above

Made for all to see our presious love

Chorus..

Love is such a beautiful thing

You make my world a summer day

Are you just a dream to fade away

Chorus..

Nobody gets too much love anymore

It's as wide as a river and harder to cross

Chorus..(repeat and fade)

I Feel The Earth Move (Angela)

by Carole King

I feel the earth move under my feet

I feel the sky tumbling down tumbling down

I feel my heart start to trembling

Whenever you're around

Oh baby When I see your face

Mellow as the month of May

Oh darling I cant stand it

When you look at me that way

(chorus)

Oh darling When Im near you

And you tenderly call my name

I know that, My emotions

Are something I just cant explain

Ive just got to have you baby

Ooh yeah, ooh ooh yeah yeah

(chorus)

Mandy

by Barry Manilow

I remember all my life

raining down as cold as ice.

Shadows of a man,

a face through a window cryin' in the night,

the night goes into

Morning just another day;

happy people pass my way.

Looking in their eyes,

I see a memory I never realized

how happy you made me.

Oh Mandy well,

you came and you gave without taking,

but I sent you away.

Oh, Mandy well,

you kissed me and stopped me from shaking,

and I need you today. Oh, Mandy!

I'm standing on the edge of time;

I walked away when love was mine.

Caught up in a world of uphill climbing,

the tears are on my mind

and nothin' is rhyming.

Oh Mandy well,

you came and you gave without taking,

but I sent you away.

Oh, Mandy well,

you kissed me and stopped me from shaking,

and I need you today. Oh, Mandy!

Yesterday's a dream, I face the morning

cryin' on the breeze, the pain is callin'

Oh Mandy well,

you came and you gave without taking,

but I sent you away.

Oh, Mandy well,

you kissed me and stopped me from shaking,

and I need you today

Oh Mandy well,

you came and you gave without taking,

but I sent you away.

Oh, Mandy well,

you kissed me and stopped me from shaking,

and I need you!

Bridge Over Troubled Water

by Simon and Garfunkel

When You're Weary, Feeling Small

When Tears Are In Your Eyes I Will Dry Them All

I'm On Your Side Oh When Times Get Rough

And Friends Just Can't Be Found

Like A Bridge Over Troubled Water

I Will Lay Me Down

When You're Down And Out When You're On The Street

When Evening Falls So Hard I Will Comfort You

I'll Take Your Part Oh When Darkness Comes

And Pain Is All Around

Like A Bridge Over Troubled Water

I Will Lay Me Down

Like A Bridge Over Troubled Water

I Will Lay Me Down

Sail On Silver Girl Sail On By

Your Time Has Come To Shine All Your Dreams Are On Their Way

See How They Shine Oh When You Need A Friend

Look Around I'm Sailing Right Behind

Like A Bridge Over Troubled Water

I Will Ease Your Mind

Like A Bridge Over Troubled Water

I Will Ease Your Mind

Your Mind, Ease Your Mind

New Clay songs:

From the Clayboard: Lyrics compliments of Krystah and admire99.

BACK FOR MORE

transcribed by: Krystah

Not too crazy 'bout love songs

Never been into that kind of stuff, no

This one's got me conflicted

I feel like I'm addicted

The sadness self-inflicted

I just can't get enough

Now it's taking on a whole new meanin'

This time the story cuts a little too close to home, 'cuz

This song is all about us

What do they know about us

What happened was just between us

And now the whole world knows

Cuz it's all over the radio

Cuts me deep with every word

Saddest song I ever heard

I can't help myself

Keep comin' back for more

Drowning in the melody

Makes me feel like I can't breathe

I can't save myself

The only time I'm close to you is when I hear a song I'm addicted to

So I keep comin' back for more

Somebody's makin' a fortune

Sellin' emotions to fools like me who

Relate to what they're sayin'

Obsessed and can't stop playin'

No use in changin' stations, no

Cuz it's everywhere on the radio, the radio, the radio

Cuts me deep with every word

Saddest song I ever heard

I can't help myself

Keep comin' back for more

Drowning in the melody

Makes me feel like I can't breathe

I can't save myself

The only time I'm close to you is when I hear a song I'm addicted to

So I keep comin' back for moooooooooooore

I keep comin' back for mooooooore

Hits me harder every time

Just notes and chords and words that rhyme

Not too crazy 'bout love songs

This type of story cuts a little too close to home

Cuz it's all over the radio, the radio, the radio

Cuts me deep with every word

Saddest song I ever heard

Try to shut it out

Keeps comin' back for more

Drowning in the melody

Makes me feel like I can't breathe

I can't save myself

The only time I'm close to you is when I hear a song I'm addicted to

So I keep comin' back for mooooooooooore

"JUST YOU"

By: admire99

You are the sun

Ever light up my life

Always laughing, never crying

You bring me joy

Unlike the day who turns into the night

Everything that was so right

Begin to go so wrong

I never thought that it could be this way

Now that you're gone

I'm standing all alone

Because your heart is, was my hope

Will I keep on without you, oh..

You are the one who fills my body and soul

Another day comes home with you

Just you, ooh

Night after night

I dream you're in my arms

Washing up and heal the scars of a wounded soul

Dance with me

Baby we'll touch the sky

Reach the mountains, oh so high

And then we'll fly away

I never thought that it could be this way

Now that you're gone

I'm standing all alone

Because your heart is, was my hope

Will I keep on without you, oh

You are the one who fills my body and soul

Another day comes home with you

Just you, ooh

Free me from these chains, baby....

Now that you're gone

I'm standing all alone

Because your heart is, was my hope

Will I keep on without you, oh

You are the one who fills my body and soul

Another day comes home with you

Just you, ooh..

Someone else just posted an alternate second verse for "Just You":

Night after night I dream you're in my arms

Because your love can heal the scars of an empty soul

Reach for me, you own time and space

Cuz, no one else can take your place

Cant face this world alone.

Adding in the lyrics for 1000 Days to the best of our understanding:

1000 Days

Through my eyes

I see the world start spinning like a ball

Stars lights up and then fall for you.

So then what's a man like me supposed to do?

If I gave you the moon would you notice

That I'm right beside you?

Well now a thousand days, a thousand nights are not enough

Cause I can't hold back the way I feel about my love

Won't let it go, won't let it go

And if the Angels came, I'd fight them back to win your soul

When everything was said and done, they'd go back home

They oughta know, they oughta know

That you're mine, all mine

In my world…

You're the sun that shines and lights an evening sky

Clearing up the horizon

Hold on…

Come with me now and I will never let you down, ooh

And in this love we'll drown

This I promise you

They can't hold us down, ooh…

Well now a thousand days, a thousand nights are not enough

Cause I can't hold back the way I feel about my love

Won't let it go, won't let it go

And if the Angels came, I'd fight them back to win your soul

When everything was said and done, they'd go back home

They oughta know, they oughta know

That you're mine, all mine

I would do anything, just believe it

Your love means everything, yes I mean it

The heart won't lie

Reach out and love…

Cause a thousand days, a thousand nights are not enough

Cause I can't hold back the way I feel about my love

Won't let it go, won't let it go

That you're mine, all mine

And if the Angels came, I'd fight them back to win your soul

When everything was said and done, they'd go back home

They oughta know, they oughta know

That you're mine, all mine

Ooh, ooh...

Tears Run Dry

Caught in a moment that won’t let go

Trying to find my way out

When movin’ on is a dead end road

Might as well turn back around

And I’m in the dark

I’m completely numb

Like a shadow that’s turned to stone

Tryin’ to figure out

How did two become

One the end of so long

(Chorus)

I’m broken, wide open

You shattered all we had

And I’m through with hopin’

Somehow I’m gonna put the pieces

Back, cry me an ocean

Now there’s nothing left inside

I’m here not knowin’

Where do you go when the tears run dry?

I close my eyes and breathe you in

It’s always and never the same

How did we end up strangers again

When I’m still dreamin’ your name?

And I’m callin’ out

Are you hearin’ me

I don’t know where I belong

Now it’s so clear

Why do I wish you here

when I know where you gone?

Chorus

Maybe I should run away

Maybe I should disappear

Maybe I should find a place

Where no one knows I’m there

Anywhere but here

Chorus

thanks to michva for the lyrics
