MUSIC

Yesterday
I was on the edge hoping everything
was going to work itself out
A good honest man
doing the work of God
Trying to make things better for Him
A lover of life
In a school for fools
trying to find another way to survive
 
New Music, Music, New Music
Sweet Music can lighten us
Can brighten the world
Can save us
 
My friend said
Well, I think I found a way
to help make myself richer
I said, "Dont you know,
well, it wont be too long before
the bad ol devil will get you back...
back.." I said "Put back your heart
and sing, sing while you know
youre still living"
Sing, sing, sing ,
while you know there's still
 
New Music, Music, New Music
Sweet Music can lighten us
Can brighten the world
Can save us
 
Take a look at the world
Think about how it will end
There'd be no wars in the world
If everybody joined in the band
Think about the light in your eyes
Think about what you should know
There'd be no wars in the world
If everybody joined in the show Oh Oh
 
Think about the light in your eyes
Think about what you should know
There'd be no wars in the world
If everybody joined in the show
In the show — New Music
Sweet Music can lighten us
Can brighten the world oh

OH VERY YOUNG

Oh very young
What will you leave us this time
You're only dancing on this earth for a short while
And though your dreams may toss and turn you now
They will vanish away like your daddys best jeans
Denim Blue fading up to the sky
And though you want him to last forever
You know he never will (You know he never will )
And the patches make the goodbye harder still
 
Oh very young
What will you leave us this time
There'll never be a better chance to change your mind
And if you want this world to see a better day
Will you carry the words of love with you
Will you ride the great white bird into heaven
And though you want to last forever
You know you never will (You know you never will )
And the goodbye makes the journey harder still
 
Oh very young
What will you leave us this time
Youre only dancing on this earth for a short while
Oh very young
What will you leave us this time

SUN/C79

Sun is the reason
And the world it will bloom
Cause sun lights the sky
And the sun lights the moon
 
Sun is the reason
All the happy trees are green
Then who can explain
The light in your dream
 
Sit you down
Sit you down young gentlemen
Theres something I want you to know
You keep on asking me
You keep on asking me why
Why are we here ?
It started a long time ago
Me and your mum on the night
Yeh Yeh Yeh ..we met
 
I was on the road again
She was in C79
I'll never never forget
I'll never forget that night no..
 
We met in a back road
Behind the stage
She had the best figure by far
Huh a thousand hours I've looked at her eyes
But I still don't know what colour they are
Me and your mum on the night
Oh Lord... we met
 
I was on the road again
She was in C79
She was a junkie then
And I was having a good time
Back on the road again
 
Oh momma I was on the road again
Back in suite 79
I'll never never forget
I'll never forget that time
Back on the road again
Oh I'm travelling that line
I was a pop star then
I'm still having a good time

GHOST TOWN

Come on let's go down
Everybody's waiting for us
Down at the ghost town
Bill Bailey said he'd be around
If Mrs. G. Robinson would just put
That bad Havana down
 
Lovely Queen Anne Boleyn
Learning new tricks from the Great Houdini... Wo Wo
Now that's the way she's gonna make it... Wo Wo
 
Come on
Come on let's go down
Everybodys waiting for us
Down at the boom town
O. Redding and Washington
Chico and Harpo and Karl are
In the Kitchen with mum
 
Buster Keaton and King Tut
Are waiting for Disney to wake up... Wo Wo
Now thats the way...
No that ain't the way he's gonna make it

JESUS

They used to call him Jesus
Long time ago
They're still calling him Jesus
Don't you know
They crossed the wood and hanged him
A long time ago
They still misunderstand him
Those who don't know
And in the evening his love will lead the blind
In every secret corner there in your mind
 
They called him Gautama Buddha
Oh long time ago
He turned the world to order
Don't you know
He used to sit knowing
Oh long time ago
Where you and me were going
And in the evening his love will lead the blind

Grab it if it comes your way
I'm ready... Oh
 
I love I love I'm ready to love yeah
Ready to love
I love I love I'm ready to love yeah
 
You make me feel things I've never felt before
Help my baby eyes and open up the door
You make me real to everyone and everyday I
I thank the Lord that you came along this way
It's no more an illusion than I can say
 
I love I love I'm ready to love yes
I love I love I'm ready to love yeah

KING OF TREES

He was the king of trees
Keeper of the leaves
A deep green god of young
Love stained memory
We used to meet by him
Far from the hustling town
I loved you
Now they've come to cut you down
...down
 
He was the guardian of
Days we held the same
Beneath the shade he gave
Shelter from the rain
Oh Lord how it's empty now
With nothing save the breeze
Now they've come to burn the leaves
Don't burn the leaves
 
And if my mind breaks up
In all so many ways
I know the meaning of
The words, 'I love you'
And if my body falls inside
An early grave
The forest and the evergreens
Are coming to take me back
So slowly as I roll
Down the track
 
The forest and the evergreens
Are coming to take me back
The forest and the evergreens
Are coming to take me back
Please take me back
 
He was the king of trees
Keeper of the glades
The way he lightened my life
Makes me so amazed
We used to meet by him
Many years ago
I loved you
Now they've come to lay the road
Don't lay the road

A BAD PENNY

Oh don't say those same idol lies
I've heard them before
This fool who left his heart on an early train
Won't buy no more
 
Oh no donŽt use
those same weeping eyes
I'll wipe them no more
I didnŽt want to have to be cruel
But the truth must be said
And you ain't heard enough
 
Oh it was not so long ago
Since you wandered out of here
To become a silver model
Of a city on the air
So don't choke me with your lies
Because this man has open eyes
And I can see
I can see I can tell
 
I had it enough
All those sneaky bars and smart parties
Had enough
All those sweet friends and lovers
I've I've had enough
All those lonely rooms and blank faces
Had enough
And I want you I want you no more
I want you I want you no more
 
O no don't say those same idol lies
I've heard them before
Oh this fool who left half his heart
on an early train, won't buy no more

HOME IN THE SKY

Come the morning IŽll be far from here
Slowly rising in another sphere
Old world goodbye
Cause IŽll be home in the sky
In the morning Bye bye
 
Stars are crying over my old house
But IŽm still breathing happy above the clouds
Home home at last
Because all of the bad times are past
 
Music is a lady that I still love
Cause she gives me the air that I breathe
Music is a lady that I still need
Cause she brings me the food that I eat
 
Come the morning I'll be far from here
Slowly rising in another sphere
Home, world goodbye
Cause I'll be home in the sky in the morning
Bye bye...bye bye
