Lyrics

California Dreamin'
02:41
Also available on:
All the leaves are brown
And the sky is grey
I've been for a walk
On a winter's day
I'd be safe and warm
If I was in L.A.
California dreamin'
On such a winter's day

Stopped into a church
I passed along the way
Well, I got down on my knees
And I pretend to pray
You know the preacher likes the cold
He knows I'm gonna stay
California dreamin'
On such a winter's day

All the leaves are brown
And the sky is grey
I've been for a walk
On a winter's day
If I didn't tell her
I could leave today
California dreamin'
On such a winter's day
California dreaming'
On such a winter's day
California dreaming'
On such a winter's day
Somebody to Love
03:00
Also available on:
When the truth is found to be lies
And all the joys within you dies
Don't you want somebody to love
Don't you need somebody to love
Wouldn't you love somebody to love
You better find somebody to love

When the garden flowers baby are dead yes
And your mind is full of red
Don't you want somebody to love
Don't you need somebody to love
Wouldn't you love somebody to love
You better find somebody to love

Your eyes, I say your eyes may look like his
But in your head baby I'm afraid you don't know where it is
Don't you want somebody to love
Don't you need somebody to love
Wouldn't you love somebody to love
You better find somebody to love

Tears are running ah running down your breast
And your friends baby they treat you like a guest
Don't you want somebody to love
Don't you need somebody to love
Wouldn't you love somebody to love
You better find somebody to love
Good Morning Starshine
03:39
Good morning starshine
The earth says hello
You twinkle above us
We twinkle below

Good morning starshine
You lead us along
My love and me as we sing
Our early morning singing song

Good morning starshine
There's love in your skies
Reflecting the sunlight
In my lover's eyes

Good morning starshine
So happy to be
My love and me as we sing
Our early morning song

Can you hear me?
Singing a song, humming a song, singing a song
Loving a song, laughing a song, singing the song
Sing the song, song the sing
Song song song sing sing sing sing song...
Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In
04:49
When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then Peace will guide the planets
And Love will steer the Stars

This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius
Age of Aquarius
Aquarius! Aquarius!

Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
No more falsehoods or derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
(Mystic crystal revelation)
And the mind's true liberation
Aquarius! Aquarius!

When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then Peace will guide the planets
And Love will steer the stars

This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius
Age of Aquarius
Aquarius! Aquarius! Aquarius! Aquarius!

Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in, the sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in, the sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in, the sunshine in

Oh, let it shine, c'mon
Now everybody just sing along
Let the sun shine in
Open up your heart and let it shine on in
When you are lonely, let it shine on
Got to open up your heart and let it shine on in
And when you feel like you've been mistreated
And your friends turn away
Just open your heart, and shine it on in
Summer in the City
02:40
Hot town, summer in the city
Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty
Been down, isn't it a pity
Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city

All around, people looking half dead
Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head

But at night it's a different world
Go out and find a girl
Come-on come-on and dance all night
Despite the heat it'll be alright

And babe, don't you know it's a pity
That the days can't be like the nights
In the summer, in the city
In the summer, in the city

Cool town, evening in the city
Dressing so fine and looking so pretty
Cool cat, looking for a kitty
Gonna look in every corner of the city
Till I'm wheezing like a bus stop
Running up the stairs, gonna meet you on the rooftop

But at night it's a different world
Go out and find a girl
Come-on come-on and dance all night
Despite the heat it'll be alright

And babe, don't you know it's a pity
That the days can't be like the nights
In the summer, in the city
In the summer, in the city

Hot town, summer in the city
Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty
Been down, isn't it a pity
Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city

All around, people looking half dead
Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head

But at night it's a different world
Go out and find a girl
Come-on come-on and dance all night
Despite the heat it'll be alright

And babe, don't you know it's a pity
That the days can't be like the nights
In the summer, in the city
In the summer, in the city
Let's Go to San Francisco
03:34
Let's go to San Francisco
Where the flowers grow
So very high

Sunshine in San Francisco
Makes your mind grow
Up to the sky

Lots of sunny people
Walking hand in hand
They're the lucky people
They have found their land

Let's go to San Francisco
Let the wind blow
Right through your hair

Go down to San Francisco
See the night full
Of people there

Let's go to San Francisco
Where the flowers grow
So very high

Sunshine in San Francisco
Makes your mind grow
Up to the sky

It's the summer in Frisco
Black Magic Woman
03:35
Got a black magic woman
Got a black magic woman
I've got a black magic woman
Got me so blind I can't see
that she's a black magic woman
She's trying 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 messing 'round with your tricks
Don't turn your back on me baby
You just might pick up my magic sticks

Got your spell on me baby
Got your spell on me baby
Yes you got your spell on me baby
Turning my heart into stone
I need you so bad, magic woman
I can't leave you alone
Incense and Peppermints
02:49
Good sense, innocence, cripplin' mankind
Dead kings, many things I can't define
Occasions, persuasions clutter your mind
Incense and peppermints, the color of time
Who cares what games we choose?
Little to win but nothin' to lose

Incense and peppermints, meaningless nouns
Turn on, tune in, turn your eyes around
Look at yourself, look at yourself, yeah, yeah
Look at yourself, look at yourself, yeah, yeah, yeah!

To divide this cockeyed world in two
Throw your pride to one side, it's the least you can do
Beatniks and politics, nothing is new
A yardstick for lunatics, one point of view
Who cares what games we choose?
Little to win but nothin' to lose

Good sense, innocence, cripplin' mankind
Dead kings, many things I can't define
Occasions, persuasions clutter your mind
Incense and peppermints, the color of time
Who cares what games we choose?
Little to win but nothin' to lose

Incense and peppermints
Incense and peppermints

Sha la la
Catch the Wind
02:56
In the chilly hours and minutes
Of uncertainty
I want to be
In the warm hold of your loving 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

When sundown pales the sky
I wanna hide a while
Behind your smile
And everywhere I'd look, your eyes I'd find

For me to love you now
Would be the sweetest thing
It would make me sing
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind

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

For standing in your heart
Is where I wanna be
And I long to be
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind

Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind
Carrie Anne
02:57
Hey Carrie Anne

When we were at school our games were simple
I played the janitor you played a monitor
Then you played with older boys and prefects
What's the attraction in what they're doing?

Hey Carrie Anne
What's your game now, can anybody play
Hey Carrie Anne
What's your game now, can anybody play

You're always something special to me
Quite independent never caring
You lost your charm as you were aging
Where is your magic dissappearing

Hey Carrie Anne
What's your game now, can anybody play
Hey Carrie Anne
What's your game now, can anybody play

You're so, so like a woman to me
So, so like a woman to me

Hey Carrie Anne
What's your game now, can anybody play
Hey Carrie Anne
What's your game now, can anybody play

People live and learn, but you're still learning
You use my mind and I'll be your teacher
When the lesson's over you'll be with me
Then I'll hear the other people saying

Hey Carrie Anne
What's your game now, can anybody play
Hey Carrie Anne
What's your game now, can anybody play

Carrie Anne
The Days of Pearly Spencer
02:35
A tenement, a dirty street
Walked and worn by shoeless feet
Inside it's long and so complete
Watched by a shivering sun
Old eyes in a small child's face
Watching as the shadows race
Through walls and cracks and leave no trace
And daylight's brightness shuns

The days of Pearly Spencer
The race is almost run

Nose pressed hard on frosted glass
Gazing as the swollen mass
On concrete fields where grows no grass
Stumbles blindly on
Iron trees smother the air
But withering they stand and stare
Through eyes that neither know nor care
Where the grass has gone

The days of Pearly Spencer
The race is almost run

Pearly where's your milk white skin
What's that stubble on your chin
It's buried in the rot gut gin
You played and lost not won
You played a house that can't be beat
Now look your head's bowed in defeat
You walked too far along the street
Where only rats can run

The days of Pearly Spencer
The race is almost run
The days of Pearly Spencer
The race is almost run
The race is almost run
I Can Hear Music
02:38
Also available on:
This is the way
I always dreamed it would be
The way that it is, oh oh
When you are holding me
I never had a love of my own
Maybe that's why when we're all alone

I can hear music
I can hear music
The sound of the city, baby, seems to disappear
I can hear music
Sweet sweet music
Whenever you touch me, baby
Whenever you're near

Lovin' you
It keeps me satisfied
And I can't explain, oh no
The way I'm feeling inside
You look at me we kiss and then
I close my eyes and here it comes again

I can hear music
I can hear music
The sound of the city, baby, seems to disappear
I can hear music
Sweet sweet music
Whenever you touch me, baby
Whenever you're near

I hear the music all the time, yeah
I hear the music, hold me tight now, baby
I hear the music all the time
I hear the music

I can hear music
I can hear music
The sound of the city, baby, seems to disappear
I can hear music
Sweet sweet music
Whenever you touch me, baby
Whenever you're near
Where Do You Go to My Lovely
04:43
You talk like Marlene Dietrich
And you dance like Zizi Jean-Maire.
Your clothes are all made by Balmain
And there's diamonds and pearls in your hair, yes there are
You live in a fancy apartment
Off the Boulevard St. Michel
Where you keep your Rolling Stones records
And a friend of Sasha Distel, yes you do

But where do you go to my lovely
When you're alone in your bed
Tell me the thoughts that surround you
I want to look inside your head, yes I do

I've seen all your qualifications
That you got from the Sorbonne
And the painting you stole from Picasso
Your loveliness goes on and on, yes it does
When you go on your summer vacation
You go to Juan-les-Pins
With your carefully designed topless swimsuit
You get an even suntan
On your back and on your legs

And when the snow falls you're found in St. Moritz
With the others of the jet set
And you sip your Napoleon brandy
but you never get your lips wet, no you don't

But where do you go to my lovely
When you're alone in your bed
Won't you tell me the thoughts that surround you
I want to look inside your head, yes I do

Your name it is heard in high places
You know the Agha Khan
He sent you a race horse for Christmas
and you keep it just for fun, for a laugh, haha haha
They say that when you get married
It will be to a millionaire
But they don't realize where you came from
And I wonder if they really care or give a damn

Where do you go to my lovely
When you're alone in your bed
Tell me the thoughts that surround you
I want to look inside your head, yes I do

Ah, remember the back streets of Naples
Two children begging in rags
Both touched with a burning ambition
To shake off their lowly-born tags, so they try
So look into my face Marie-Claire
And remember just who you are
Then go and forget me forever
But I know you still bear the
Scar deep inside, yes you do

Ah, I know where you go to my lovely
When you're alone in your bed
I know the thoughts that surround you
'Cause I can look inside your head
Kites
03:50
I will fly a yellow paper sun in your sky
When the wind is high, when the wind is high

I will float a silver solid moon through your window
If your night is dark, if your night is dark

In letters of gold on a snow white kite
I will write " I love you!"
And send it soaring high above you
For all to read

I will scatter rice paper stars in your heaven
If there are no stars, if there are no stars

All of these and seven wonders more will I find
When the wind is high, when the wind is high

In letters of gold on a snow white kite
I will write "I love you!"
And send it soaring high above you
For all to read

(Asian speech)
No one say you need
(Asian speech)

In letters of gold on a snow white kite
I will write " I love you!"
And send it soaring high above you
For all to read
Happy Together
02:56
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

I can't see me lovin' nobody but you
For all my life
When you're with me, baby the skies'll be blue
For all my life

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice, it has to be
The only one for me is you, and you for me
So happy together

I can't see me lovin' nobody but you
For all my life
When you're with me, baby the skies'll be blue
For all my life

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice, it has 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 toss the dice, it has 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
Happy together
So happy together
So happy together
Green Tambourine
02:25
Drop your silver in my tambourine
Help a poor man fill his pretty dream
Give me pennies I'll take anything
Now listen while I play
My green tambourine

Watch the jingle jangle start to chime
Reflections of the music that is mine
When you drop a coin you'll hear it sing
Now listen while I play
My green tambourine

Drop a dime before I walk away
Any song you want I'll gladly play
Money feeds my music machine
Now listen while I play
My green tambourine
American Woman
05:08
American woman gonna mess your mind

American woman, stay away from me
Americanwoman, mama let me be
Don't come a-hangin' around my door
I don't wanna see your face no more
I got more important things to do
Than spend my time growin' old with you
Now woman, I said stay away
American woman, listen what I say

American woman, get away from me
American woman, mama let me be
Don't come a knockin' around my door
Don't wanna see your shadow no more
Coloured lights can hypnotize
Sparkle someone else's eyes
Now woman, I said get away
American woman, listen what I say

American woman, said get away
American woman, listen what I say
Don't come a hangin' around my door
Don't wanna see your face no more
I don't need your war machines
I don't need your ghetto scenes
Coloured lights can hypnotize
Sparkle someone else's eyes
Now woman, get away from me
American woman, mama let me be

Go, gotta get away, gotta get away now go, go, go
I'm gonna leave you woman
Gonna leave you woman
Bye-bye, bye-bye, bye-bye, bye-bye
You're no good for me
I'm no good for you
Gonna look you right in the eye
Tell you what I'm gonna do
You know I'm gonna leave
You know I'm gonna go
You know I'm gonna leave
You know I'm gonna go, woman
I'm gonna leave you woman
Goodbye American woman
In the Year 2525 (Exordium & Terminus)
03:17
In the year 2525
If man is still alive
If woman can survive
They may find

In the year 3535
Ain't gonna need to tell the truth, tell no lies
Ev'rything you think do and say
Is in the pill you took today

In the year 4545
You ain't gonna need your teeth won't need your eyes
You won't find a thing to chew
Nobody's gonna look at you

In the year 5555
Your arms are hangin' limp at you side
Your legs got nothin' to do
Some machines doin' that for you

In the year 6565
Ain't gonna need no husband won't need no wife
You'll pick your son, pick your daughter too
From the bottom of a long glass tube

In the year 7510
If God's a-coming he oughta make it by then
Maybe he'll look around himself and say:
Guess it's time for the judgement day

In the year 8510
God is gonna shake his mighty head
He'll either say I'm pleased where man has been
Or tear it down and start again

In the year 9595
I'm kind a wond'rin' if man is gonna be alive
He's taken everything this old earth can give
And he ain't put back nothin'

Now it's been 10 000 years, man has cried a billion tears
For what he never knew: now man's reign is through
But through eternal night, the twinkling of starlight
So very far away, maybe it's only yesterday?

In the year 2525
If man is still alive
If woman can survive
They may find

In the year 3535...
Paranoid
02:50
Also available on:
Finished with my woman 'cause she couldn't help me with my mind
people think I'm insane because I am frowning all the time
All day long I think of things but nothing seems to satisfy
Think I'll lose my mind if I don't find something to pacify

Can you help me occupy my brain?
Oh yeah

I need someone to show me the things in life that I can't find
I can't see the things that make true happiness, I must be blind

Make a joke and I will sigh and you will laugh and I will cry
Happiness I cannot feel and love to me us so unreal

And so as you hear these words telling you now of my state
I tell you to enjoy life I wish I could but it's too late
Light Flight
03:15
Also available on:
Let's get away, you say, find a better place,
Miles and miles away from the city's race,
Look around for someone lying in the sunshine
Marking time, hear the sighs, close your eyes

Ba - da - pa do da da - ba - pa do da da

Stepping from cloud to cloud passing years of light
Visit the frosty stars in the backward flight
Star becomes a vision, never mind the meaning,
Hidden there, moving fast, it won't last

Ba - da - pa do da da - ba - pa do da da

Time passes all too soon, how it rushes by,
Now a thousand moons are about to die
No time to reflect on what the time was spent on,
Nothing left, far away, dreamers fade

Strange visions pass me by, winging sweetly close inside
O-ver the wa-ter, ah

Swirling, the waters rise up above my head.
Gone are the curling mists how they all have fled.
Look, the door is open, step into the space
Provided there

Da do da, da, do da
Ba - da - pa do da da - ba - pa do da da
Ob La Di, Ob La Da
03:02
Desmond has a barrow in the market place
Molly is the singer in a band
Desmond says to Molly: "Girl I like your face"
And Molly says this as she takes him by the hand:

Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on
Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on.

Desmond takes a trolly to the jewellers store
Buys a twenty carat golden ring
Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door
And as he gives it to her she begins to sing:

Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on
Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on.

In a couple of years they have built a home sweet home
With a couple of kids running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones.

Happy ever after in the market place
Molly lets the children lend a hand
Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face
And in the evening she's a singer with the band.

Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on
Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on.
And if you want some fun
Take obladi-blada.
Everlasting Love
03:01
Hearts gone astray, leaving hurt when they go
I went away, just when you, you need me so
You won't regret, I'll come back begging you
Won't you forget, welcome love we once knew

Open up your eyes, then you'll realize
Here I stand with my, everlasting love
Need you by my side, girl to be my pride
You'll never be denied, everlasting love
From the very start, open up your heart
Be a lasting part of everlasting love

(Real love to last forever)
(Real love to last forever)

Where life really flows, no one really knows
Till someone's there to show the way to lasting love
Like the sun it shines, endlessly it shines
You always will be mine, with eternal love
Whenever love went wrong, ours would still be strong
We'd have our very own, everlasting love

(Real love to last forever)
(Real love to last forever)

Open up your eyes, then you'll realize
Here I stand with my, everlasting love
Need you by my side, girl to be my pride
You'll never be denied, everlasting love
From the very start, open up your heart
Be a lasting part of everlasting love
Whenever love went wrong, ours would still be strong
We'd have our very own, everlasting love

Sunny Afternoon
03:33
The tax man's taken all my dough,
And left me in my stately home,
Lazing on a sunny afternoon.
And I can't sail my yacht,
He's taken everything I've got,
All I've got's this sunny afternoon.

Save me, save me, save me from this squeeze.
I got a big fat mama trying to break me.
And I love to live so pleasantly,
Live this life of luxury,
Lazing on a sunny afternoon.
In the summertime
In the summertime
In the summertime

My girlfriend's run off with my car,
And gone back to her ma and pa,
Telling tales of drunkenness and cruelty.
Now I'm sitting here,
Sipping at my ice cold beer,
Lazing on a sunny afternoon.

Help me, help me, help me sail away,
Well give me two good reasons why I oughta stay.
'Cause I love to live so pleasantly,
Live this life of luxury,
Lazing on a sunny afternoon.
In the summertime
In the summertime
In the summertime

Ah, save me, save me, save me from this squeeze.
I got a big fat mama trying to break me.
And I love to live so pleasantly,
Live this life of luxury,
Lazing on a sunny afternoon.
In the summertime
In the summertime
In the summertime
Venus
03:03
A goodess on a mountain top,
was burning like a silver flame.
The summit of beauty she was,
and Venus was her name.

She's got it, Yeah baby she's got it.
Well, I'm your Venus, I'm your fire at you desire.
Well, I'm your Venus, I'm your fire at you desire.

Her weapon were her crystal eyes,
making every man a man.
Black as a darknight she was,
got what no one else had.
I Can't Let Maggie Go
02:58
She makes me laugh, she makes me cry
With a twinkle of her eye

She flies like a bird in the sky
She flies like a bird and I wish that she was mine
She flies like a bird, oh me, oh my
I see, I sigh, now I know
I can't let Maggie go

We walk here and we walk there
People stop and people stare

'Cause she flies like a bird in the sky
She flies like a bird and I wished that she was mine
She flies like a bird, oh me, oh my
I see, I sigh, now I know
I can't let Maggie go

Oh, she flies like a bird in the sky
She flies like a bird and I wished that she was mine
She flies like a bird, oh me, oh my
I see, I sigh, now I know
I can't let Maggie go

Oh, yes she flies like a bird in the sky
She flies like a bird and I wished that she was mine
Oh yes, I wish that she was mine
She flies like a bird, oh me, oh my
I see, I sigh, now I know
I can't let Maggie go
Games People Play
03:31
Oh the games people play now
Every night and every day now
Never meaning what they say now
Never saying what they mean

And they wile away the hours
In their ivory towers
Till they're covered up with flowers
In the back of a black limousine

Chorus
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

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 give in
So we gaze at our eight by ten
Thinking 'bout the things that might have been
It's a dirty rotten shame

Repeat Chorus

People walking up to you
Singing glory hallelulia
And they're tryin to sock it to you
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

Repeat Chorus

Look around tell me what you see
What's happening to you and me
God grant me the serenity
To remember who I am

Cause you've given up your sanity
For your pride and your vanity
Turns you sad on humanity
And you don't give a da da da da da

Repeat Chorus
Spinning Wheel
04:03
Also available on:
What goes up must come down
Spinnin' wheel got to go 'round
Talkin' 'bout your troubles it's a cryin' sin
Ride a painted pony let the spinnin' wheel spin

You got no money and you got no home
Spinnin' wheel all alone
Talkin' 'bout your troubles and you never learn
Ride a painted pony let the spinnin' wheel turn

Did you find the directing sign on the
Straight and narrow highway
Would you mind a reflecting sign
Just let it shine within your mind
And show you the colors that are real

Someone is waiting just for you
Spinnin' wheel, spinnin' true
Drop all your troubles by the riverside
My Friend the Sun
04:21
Well I know that you're lonely, come in from the cold
Your shoes they need mending, your clothes they look old
Won't you pick up your pieces, it's never too late
Though it's never early to make a mistake
As soon as you wake...
Although there's been rain, and it's coming again
Change has to be here, obviously
Though my friend the sun looks well on the run
He's there in the distance, if you care to see

I know that you're waiting, come out from your shell
There'll come a time when you'll remember it well
Take all the good times from chances you've had
Chances you've made and what you've learnt from the bad
It's never so sad...

Although there's been rain, and it's coming again
Change has to be here, obviously
Though my friend the sun looks well on the run
He's there in the distance, if you care to see

If the season were a reason, then there'd be no doubt
A sequel of changes worth putting you out
But on the question of whether you heard a lie
Answer yourself looking straight in his eyes
Don't you realize...

Although there's been rain, and it's coming again
Change has to be here, obviously
Though my friend the sun looks well on the run
He's there in the distance, if you care to see
Silver Machine
04:39
I, I just took a ride
In a silver machine and I'm still feeling mean
Do you wanna ride, see yourself going by
The other side of the sky, I got a silver machine
It flies sideways thru' time
It's an electric line to your Zodiac sign

I've got a silver machine, I've got a silver machine
I've got a silver machine, we fly in a silver machine
I've got a silver machine ...

It flies out of a dream
It's antiseptically clean, you're gonna know what I mean
Do you wanna ride, see yourself going by
The other side of the sky, I mean a silver machine
I, said I just took a ride
In a silver machine and I'm still feeling mean
It flies sideways thru' time
It's an electric line to your Zodiac sign

I've got a silver machine, I've got a silver machine
I've got a silver machine, I've got a silver machine
Living in the Past
03:21
Happy and I'm smiling,
walk a mile to drink your water.
You know I'd love to love you,
and above you there's no other.
We'll go walking out
while others shout of war's disaster.
Oh, we won't give in,
let's go living in the past.

Once I used to join in
every boy and girl was my friend.
Now there's revolution, but they don't know
what they're fighting.
Let us close out eyes;
outside their lives go on much faster.
Oh, we won't give in,
we'll keep living in the past.
Devil's Answer
03:26
People are looking but they don't know what to do
It's the time of the reason for the people like you
Come back tomorrow, show the scars on your face
It's a clue to the answer we all chase

Three, five and seven lift the heaviest load
Reach the top of the heaven that's fallen below
Devil may care but you wish for the best
Can't you see there's an answer that lies there

Sing! Sing!

Come all you sinners and keep with the time
Can we see all the faces of the people behind
Don't make the reason, it's a secret for you
There's a clue to the answer we all know
Sing!

There's no clue to the answer we all know
Sing!

People are looking but they don't know what to do
It's the time of the reason for the people like you
Come back tomorrow, show the scars on your face
It's a clue to the answer we all chase
Sing!
It's a clue to the answer we all chase

Hi Ho Silver Lining
02:50
You're ev'rywhere and nowhere, baby
That's where you're at
Goin' down the bumpy hillside in your hippie head
Flyin' across the country and getting fat
Sayin' ev'rything is groovy when you're tired of that

And it's hi ho silver lining
Anywhere you go, now baby
I see your sun is shining
But I won't make a fuss, though it's obvious

Flies are in your pea soup, baby, they're wavin' at me
Anything you want is yours now, only nothin's for free
Life's a gonna get you someday, just wait and see
So open up your beach umbrella while you're watching TV

And it's hi ho silver lining
Anywhere you go, well baby
I see your sun is shining
But I won't make a fuss, though it's obvious

And it's hi ho silver lining
Anywhere you go, well baby
I see your sun is shining
But I won't make a fuss, though it's obvious

Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
If you're going to San Francisco
You're gonna meet some gentle people there

For those who come to San Francisco
Summertime will be a love-in there
In the streets of San Francisco
Gentle people with flowers in their hair

All across the nation
Such a strange vibration
People in motion, people in motion
There's a whole generation
With a new explanation

Summertime will be a love-in there

Eight Miles High
03:37
Also available on:
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 warmth to be found
Among those afraid of losing their ground
Rain gray town known for its sound
In places small faces unbound

Round the squares huddled in storms
Some laughing some just shapeless forms
Sidewalk scenes and black limousines
Some living, some standing alone
Daydream
02:20
What a day for a day dream,
What a day for a day dreamin' boy.
And I'm lost in a day dream,
Dreamin' 'bout my bundle of joy.
And even if time ain't really on my side,
It's one of those days for taking a walk outside.
I'm blowing the day to take a walk in the sun,
And fall on my face in somebody's new mowed lawn.

I've been havin' a sweet dream,
I've been dreamin' since I woke up today,
It's starring me in 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 got.
Tomorrow I'll pay the dues for dropping my load.
A pie in the face for being a sleepy bull toad.

And you can be sure that if you're feelin right
A day dream will last a long time into the night.
Tomorrow at breakfast you may prick up your ears,
Or you may be dreamin' for a thousand years.
Need Your Love So Bad
03:50
Need someone's hand to lead me through the night
I need someone's arms to hold and squeeze me tight
Now, when the night begins, whoa, I'm at an end
Because I need your love so bad

I need some lips to feel next to mine
Need someone to stand up - to stand up and tell me when I'm lyin'
And when the lights are low - and it's time to go
That's when I need your love so bad

So why don't you give it up, baby and bring it home to me
or write it on a piece of paper, woman - so it can be read to me
Tell me that you love me - and stop drivin' me mad
whoa, because I - I need your love so bad

Need a soft voice - just to talk to me at night
Don't want you to worry, baby
I know we can make everything alright
Listen to my plea, baby, come on bring it to me
'Cause I need - your love so bad
Baby, I need, I need - woman, I need your love so bad
White Rabbit

Also available on:
One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you, don't do anything at all

Go ask Alice, when she's ten feet tall

And if you go chasing rabbits, and you know you're going to fall
Tell 'em a hookah-smoking caterpillar has given you the call

And call Alice, when she was just small

When the men on the chessboard get up and tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom, and your mind is moving low

Go ask Alice, I think she'll know

When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead
And the white knight is talking backwards
And the red queen's off with her head
Remember what the dormouse said
Feed your head, feed your head
Brand New Key
02:26
I rode my bicycle past your window last night
I roller-skated to your door at daylight
It almost seems like you're avoiding me
I'm okay alone, but you got something I need

Well, I got a brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key
I think that we should get together and try them out you see
I been looking around awhile
You got something for me
Oh! I got a brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key

Don't go too fast, but I go pretty far
For somebody who don't drive
I been all around the world
Some people say, I done all right for a girl

I asked your mother if you were at home
She said yes but you weren't alone
Oh, sometimes I think that you're avoiding me
I'm okay alone, but you got something I need

Well, I got a brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key
I think that we should get together and try them out to see
La la la la la la la la, la la la la la la
Oh! I got a brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key

Winchester Cathedral
You're bringing me down
You stood and you watched as
My baby left town

You could have done something
But you didn't try
You didn't do nothing
You let her walk by

Now everyone knows just how much I needed that gal
She wouldn't have gone far away
If only you'd started ringing your bell

Winchester Cathedral
You're bringing me down
You stood and you watched as
My baby left town
Dear Delilah
02:29
Each night when watchin' dying of the day
I seem to find, I hardly know my way around
Even with the crowd I'm on my own
Now she's gone, I don't know if I'm lost or found

You're bringin' me down, dear Delilah
I can't see you comin' around, dear Delilah
It's hard to realize and harder to see
And harder still when someone tells you
She wanted someone else that I couldn't be

You're bringin' me down, dear Delilah
I can't see you comin' around, dear Delilah

Wind blowin', and I'm falling with the rain
Was I too fast, too slow, or did the weather change

You're bringin' me down, dear Delilah
I can't see you comin' around, dear Delilah
And when you ask me if I need her, I do
But ask me why, and I can't tell you
I only know that she means so much to me

You're bringin' me down, dear Delilah
I can't see you comin' around, dear Delilah
You're bringin' me down, dear Delilah
I can't see you comin' around, dear Delilah
Dedicated Follower of Fashion
03:02
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,
'Cause 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 fads and trends,
'Cause 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 is in stripes.
'Cause he's a dedicated follower of fashion.

They seek him here, they seek him there,
In Regent Street and Leicester Square.
Everywhere the Carnabetian army marches on,
Each one an 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 discoteques and parties.
This pleasure-seeking individual always looks his best
'Cause 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 fickle as can be,
'Cause he's a dedicated follower of fashion.
He's a dedicated follower of fashion.
He's a dedicated follower of fashion.
Excerpt from a Teenage Opera
04:30
Count the days into years
his eighty two brings many fears
Yesterday's laughter turned to tears
his arms and legs don't feel so strong
his heart is weak, there's something wrong
Opens windows in despair
tries to breathe in some fresh air
his conscience cries: "Get on your feet.
without you, Jack, the town can't eat".

Grocer Jack, grocer Jack. get off your back.
go into town. don't let them down. Oh no. no.
Grocer jack. grocer Jack. get off your back.
go into town, don't let them down, Oh no. no.

The people that live in the town
don't understand
He's never been known to miss his round,
"It's ten-o'clock", the housewives yell.
"When Jack turns up we'll 'give him hell."
Husbands moan at breakfast tables
No milk. no egg. no marmalade labels
Mothers send their children out
to Jack's house to scream and shout

Grocer Jack, grocer Jack. get off your back
come into town. don't let us down. Oh no. no.
Grocer Jack, grocer Jack. get off your back
come into town. don't let us down. Oh no. no.

A Sunday morning bright and clear
Lovely flowers decorate the marvellous square
People cry and walk away and think about the fateful day
Now they wish they'd given Jack more affection and respect
Little children dressed in black don't know what happened to old Jack

Grocer Jack, grocer Jack, is it true what mummy says,
you won't come back, oh no, oh no
Grocer Jack, grocer Jack, is it true what mummy says,
you won't come back, oh no, oh no
Silence Is Golden
03:08
Oh, don't it hurt deep inside
To see someone do something to her
Oh, don't it pain to see someone cry
Oh, especially when someone is her

Silence is golden, but my eyes still see
Silence is golden, golden
But my eyes still see

Talking is cheap, people follow like sheep
Even though there is nowhere to go
How could she tell, he deceived her so well
Pity, she'll be the last one to know

Silence is golden, but my eyes still see
Silence is golden, golden
But my eyes still see

How many times will she fall for his line
Should I tell her or should I keep cool
And if I tried, I know she'll say I lied
Mind your business, don't hurt her, you fool

Silence is golden, but my eyes still see
Silence is golden, golden
But my eyes still see
But my eyes still see
But my eyes still see

It wears a nicer face in my beautiful balloon
We can sing a song and sail along the silver sky
For we can fly we can fly

Suspended under a twilight canopy
We'll search the clouds for a star to guide us
If by some chance you find yourself loving me
We'll find a cloud to hide us
We'll keep the moon beside us

Love is waiting there in my beautiful balloon
Way up in the air in my beautiful balloon
If you'll hold my hand we'll chase your dream across the sky
For we can fly we can fly

Up, up and away
My beautiful, my beautiful balloon

Little girl thought she wouldn't get caught, you see
She thought she'd get away with goin' out on me, yeah

Other girls did it, you didn't think of nothin' new
You went out on me, so other girls did it too

You can leave, little girl, I don't want you 'round no more
If you come knockin', you won't get past my door... yeah!

You got nothin' to hide and everybody knows it's true
Too bad, little girl, it's all over for you... ha-ha-ha-ha
And the Sun Will Shine
03:45
And the rain will fall, it falls for you.
And the clouds will break into tears,

'Cept I know you should be sad
But give me time alone to get it out of my mind.
Though say I know it's only the weather.
'Cause ev'ry time it rains you are gone.
And I'm blue.
Then I wake up, then I wake up.

And the sun will shine if just for you.
And the trees will talk to the skies, whispering lies,
heaven will pass to me, yeah.
Trains walk by and the birds disappear.
Oh! Why am I still here without you by my side.
So I cry your name and love,
the thought to me is back and how near.
Then I wake up, then I grow up.

And the rain will fall.
It falls for you.
And the clouds will break
It should be near.
And the sun will shine

Was a good friend of mine
I never understood a single word he said
But I helped him a-drink his wine
And he always had some mighty fine wine
Singin'...

Joy to the world
All the boys and girls now
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me

Tell you what I'd do
I'd throw away the cars and the bars and the war
Make sweet love to you
Sing it now...

Woodstock
04:31
I came upon the child of god
He was walking along the road
When I asked him where he was going this he told me

I'm going down to Yasgur's Farm
Think I'll join a rock n' roll band
I'll camp out on the land and try and set my soul free

We are stardust
We are golden
And we've got to get ourselves
back to the garden

Then can I walk beside you
I have come here to lose the smog
And I feel just like a cog in something turning

Well maybe it's the time of year
or maybe it's the time of man
And I don't know who I am but life is for learning

We are stardust
We are golden
And we've got to get ourselves
back to the garden

By the time I got to Woodstock
They were half a million strong
Everywhere there were songs and celebration

In a dream I saw the bombers
Riding shotgun in the sky
Turning into butterflies above our nation

We are stardust
We are golden
And we've got to get ourselves
back to the garden
Darling Be Home Soon
03:35
Come and talk of all the things we did today
Here and laugh about our funny little ways
While we have a few minutes to breathe
Then I know that it's time you must leave

But darling be home soon
I couldn't bear to wait an extra minute if you dawdled
My darling be home soon
It's not just these few hours but I've been waiting since I toddled
For the great relief of having you to talk to

And now a quarter of my life is almost past
I think I've come to see myself at last
And I see that the time spent confused
Was the time that I spent without you
And I feel myself in bloom

So darling be home soon
I couldn't bear to wait an extra minute if you dawdled
My darling be home soon
It's not just these few hours but I've been waiting since I toddled
For the great relief of having you to talk to

Darling be home soon
I couldn't bear to wait an extra minute if you dawdled
My darling be home soon
It's not just these few hours but I've been waiting since I toddled
For the great relief of having you to talk to

Go and beat your crazy head against the sky
Try and see beyond the houses and your eyes
It's ok to shoot the moon

So darling
My darling be home soon
I couldn't bear to wait an extra minute if you dawdled
My darling be home soon
It's not just these few hours but I've been waiting since I toddled
For the great relief of having you to talk to

Take a load off Fanny, And (and) (and) you can put the load right on me.

Catch a cannon ball now, t'take me down the line
My bag is sinkin' low and I do believe it's time.
To get back to Miss Fanny, you know she's the only one.
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone.

Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free;
Take a load off Fanny, And (and) (and) you can put the load right on me.

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.

Though I know that evenin's empire has returned into sand,
Vanished from my hand,
Left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping.
My weariness amazes me, I'm branded on my feet,
I have no one to meet
And the ancient empty street's too dead for dreaming.

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.

Take me on a trip upon your magic swirlin' ship,
My senses have been stripped, my hands can't feel to grip,
My toes too numb to step, wait only for my boot heels
To be wanderin'.
I'm ready to go anywhere, I'm ready for to fade
Into my own parade, cast your dancing spell my way,
I promise to go under it.

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.

Though you might hear laughin', spinnin', swingin' madly across the sun,
It's not aimed at anyone, it's just escapin' on the run
And but for the sky there are no fences facin'.
And if you hear vague traces of skippin' reels of rhyme
To your tambourine in time, it's just a ragged clown behind,
I wouldn't pay it any mind, it's just a shadow you're
Seein' that he's chasing.

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.

Then take me disappearin' through the smoke rings of my mind,
Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves,
The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach,
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free,
Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands,
With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves,
Let me forget about today until tomorrow.

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.
It Ain't Me, Babe
02:08
Go 'way from my window
Leave at your own chosen speed
I'm not the one you want, babe
I'm not the one you need
You say you're lookin' for someone
Who's never weak but always strong
To protect you an' defend you
Whether you are right or wrong
Someone to open each and every door

But it ain't me, babe
No, no, no, it ain't me babe
It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe.

Go lightly from the ledge, babe
Go lightly on the ground
I'm not the one you want, babe
I will only let your down
You say you're lookin' for someone
Who will promise never to part
Someone to close his eyes for you
Someone to close his heart
Someone who will die for you an' more

But it ain't me, babe
No, no, no, it ain't me babe
It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe.

Go melt back in the night
Everything inside is made of stone
There's nothing in here moving
An' anyway I'm not alone
You say you're looking for someone
Who'll pick you up each time you fall
To gather flowers constantly
An' to come each time you call
A lover for you life an' nothing more

But it ain't me, babe
No, no, no, it ain't me, babe
It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe.
Everybody's Talkin'
02:46
Everybody's talking at me
I don't hear a word they're saying
Only the echoes of my mind

People stopping staring
I can't see their faces
Only the shadows of their eyes

I'm going where the sun keeps shining
Thru' the pouring rain
Going where the weather suits my clothes
Backing off of the North East wind
Sailing on summer breeze
And skipping over the ocean like a stone
Get Together
04:39
Love is but a song to sing
Fear's the way we die
You can make the mountains ring
Or make the angels cry
Though the bird is on the wing
And you may not know why

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Some may come and some may go
We shall surely pass
When the one that left us here
Returns for us at last
We are but a moment's sunlight
Fading in the grass

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

If you hear the song I sing
You will understand (listen!)
You hold the key to love and fear
All in your trembling hand
Just one key unlocks them both
It's there at you command

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Ruby Tuesday
04:36
She would never say where she came from
Yesterday don't matter 'cause its gone
While the sun is bright
Or in the darkest night
No one knows
She comes and then she goes

Goodbye Ruby Tuesday
Who is gonna hang a name on you
And when you change with every new day
Still I'm gonna miss you

Don't ask her why she leaves to be so free
She's gonna tell you it's the only way to be
And she just can't be chained
To a life where nothing's gained
And nothing's lost
But such a cost

Goodbye Ruby Tuesday
Who is gonna hang a name on you
And when you change with every new day
Still I'm gonna miss you

Oh there's no time to lose I heard her say
You gotta catch your dreams before they run away
Dying all the time
Lose your dreams then you might lose your mind
Is life unkind

Goodbye Ruby Tuesday
Who is gonna hang a name on you
And when you change with every new day
Still I'm gonna miss you

Goodbye Ruby Tuesday
Who is gonna hang a name on you
And when you change with every new day
Still I'm gonna miss you

Goodbye Ruby Tuesday
Mama Told Me Not to Come
03:18
Want some whiskey in your water? Sugar in your tea?
What's all these crazy questions they're askin' me?
This is the craziest party that could ever be
Don't turn on the lights 'cause I don't wanna see

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come
"That ain't the way to have fun, no"

Open up the window, let some air into this room
I think I'm almost chokin' from the smell of stale perfume
And that cigarette you're smokin' 'bout scare me half to death
Open up the window, sucker, let me catch my breath

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come
"That ain't the way to have fun, son"
"That ain't the way to have fun, son"

The radio is blastin', someone's knockin' at the door
I'm lookin' at my girlfriend - she's passed out on the floor
I seen so many things I ain't never seen before
Don't know what it is - I don't wanna see no more

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come
She said, "That ain't the way to have fun, son"
"That ain't the way to have fun, no"
Eve of Destruction
03:37
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!
Tehn take a look around to Selma, Alabama!
Ah, you may leave here, for four days in space,
But when your eturn, it's the same old place,
The poundin' of the drums, th 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 and over again my friend,
Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction.
The Universal Soldier
02:13
He's five feet two and he's six feet four
He fights with missiles and with spears
He's all of 31 and he's only 17
He's been a soldier for a thousand years

He's a Catholic, a Hindu, an athiest, a Jain,
a Buddhist and a Baptist and a Jew
and he knows he shouldn't kill and he knows he always will
kill you for me my friend and me for you

And he's fighting for Canada, he's fighting for France,
he's fighting for the USA,
and he's fighting for the Russians and he's fighting for Japan,
and he thinks we'll put an end to war this way

And he's fighting for Democracy and fighting for the Reds
He says it's for the peace of all
He's the one who must decide who's to live and who's to die
and he never sees the writing on the walls

But without him how would Hitler have condemned him at Dachau
Without him Caesar would have stood alone
He's the one who gives his body as a weapon to a war
and without him all this killing can't go on

He's the universal soldier and he really is to blame
His orders come from far away no more
They come from him, and you, and me and brothers can't you see
this is not the way we put an end to war.
All I Ever Need Is You
02:40
Sometimes when I'm down and all alone
just like a child without a home
the love you give me keeps me hangin' on
awww honey, all I ever need is you

You're my first love you're my last
you're my future, you're my past
and loving you is all I ask
aww honey, all I ever need is you

Winters come and they go
and we watch the melting snow
but sure as summer follows spring
all the things you do
give me a reason to spend me life
around you

Some men follow rainbows I am told
some men search for silver, some for gold
but I have found my treasure in your soul
my honey, all I ever need is you
Dream a Little Dream of Me
03:13
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 "Night-ie night" and kiss me
Just hold me tight and tell me you'll 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

Magic Carpet Ride
04:26
I like to dream, yes I do
Right between the sound machine
On a cloud of sound I drift in the night
Every place she goes is right
Flies far, flies near
To the stars away from here

Well, you don't know what
We can find
Why don't you come with me little girl
On a magic carpet ride

Well, you don't know what
We can find
Why don't you tell your dreams to me
Fantasy will set you free

Close your eyes girl
Look inside girl
Let the sound take you away

Last night I found Aladdin's lamp
So I wished that I could stay
But before the thing could answer me
Someone came and took the lamp away

I looked
Around
A lousy candle's all I found

Well, you don't know what
We can find
Why don't you come with me little girl
On a magic carpet ride

Well, you don't know what
We can see
Why don't you tell your dreams to me
Fantasy will set you free

Close your eyes girl
Look inside girl
Let the sound take you away
On the Road Again
03:25
Well I'm so tired of cryin' but I'm out on the road again - I'm on the road again.
Well I'm so tired of cryin' but I'm out on the road again - I'm on the road again.
I ain't got no woman just to call my special friend.

And I'm going to leave the city, got to go away.
I'm going to leave the city, got to go away.
All this fussing and fighting, man I sure can't stay.

You know the first time I travelled out in the rain and snow - in the rain and snow.
You know the first time I travelled out in the rain and snow - in the rain and snow.
I didn't have no fellow, not even no place to go.

And my dear mother left me when I was quite young - when I was quite young.
And my dear mother left me when I was quite young - when I was quite young.
She said "Lord have mercy on my wicked son."

Take a hint from me mama please don't you cry no more - don't you cry no more.
Take a hint from me mama please don't you cry no more - don't you cry no more.
Cause it's soon one morning down the road I'm gone.

But I ain't going down that long and lonesome road - all by myself.
But I ain't going down that long and lonesome road - all by myself.
I can't carry you baby, gonna carry somebody else.
