WILD WORLD

Now that I've lost everything to you
You say you wanna start something new
And it's breakin' my heart you're leavin'
Baby, I'm grievin'
But if you wanna leave, take good care
Hope you have a lot of nice things to wear
But then a lot of nice things turn bad out there
 
Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
I'll always remember you like a child, girl
 
You know I've seen a lot of what the world can do
And it's breakin' my heart in two
Because I never wanna see you a sad girl
Don't be a bad girl
But if you wanna leave, take good care
Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
But just remember there's a lot of bad and beware
 
Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
I'll always remember you like a child, girl
 
Baby, I love you
But if you wanna leave, take good care
Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
But just remember there's a lot of bad and beware
 
Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
I'll always remember you like a child, girl
 
Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
I'll always remember you like a child, girl

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

CAN´T KEEP IT IN

Oh I can't keep it in
I can't keep it and
I've gotta let it out
I've gotta show the world
world's gotta see
See all the love,
love that's in me
I said, why walk alone,
Why worry when it's warm over here
You've got so much to say,
say what you mean,
Mean what you're thinking,
and think anything
Oh why,
why must you waste your life away
You've got to live for today,
Then let it go oh
Lover,
I want to spend this time with you
There's nothing I wouldn't do,
If you let me know
 
And I can't keep it in,
I can't hide it and
I can't lock it away
I'm up for your love,
love heats my blood
Blood spins my head,
and my head falls in love
 
No I can't keep it in,
I can't keep it and
I've gotta let it out
I've gotta show the world,
world's got to know
Know of the love,
love that lies low,
So why can't you say,
If you know then
why can't you say
You've got too much deceit
and deceit kills the light
Light needs to shine,
I said shine light, shine light
Love,
that's no way to live your life
You allow too much to go by,
And that won't do —no
Lover,
I want to have you here by my side
Now don't you run don't you hide,
While I'm with you
 
'N I can't keep it in,
can't keep it in
I've gotta let it out
I've gotta show the world,
world's got to see
See all the love,
love that's in me
I said why walk alone,
Why worry when its warm over here
You got so much to say,
say what you mean
Mean what you're thinking
and think anything, why not!
Now why why why not!

HARD HEADED WOMAN

I'm looking for a hard headed woman
One who will take me for myself
And if I find my hard headed woman
I will need nobody else
No, no, no
 
I'm looking for a hard headed woman
One who will make me do my best
And if I find my hard headed woman
I know the rest of my life will be blessed
Yes, yes, yes
 
I know a lot of fancy dancers
people who can glide you on a floor
They move so smooth but have no answers
When you ask them
"What d'you come here for?"
"I don't know" "Why?"
 
I know many fine feathered friends
but their friendliness depends on how you do
They know many sure fired ways
to find out the one who pays
and how you do
 
I'm looking for a hard headed woman
One who will make me feel so good
And if I find my hard headed woman
I know my life will be as it should
Yes, yes, yes
 
I'm looking for a hard headed woman
One who will make me do my best
And if I find my hard headed woman

MOONSHADOW

I'm being followed by a moonshadow
moonshadow — moonshadow
Leaping and hopping on a moonshadow
moonshadow — moonshadow
 
And if I ever lose my hands
lose my plough, lose my land
Oh if I ever lose my hands
Oh if · · ·
I won't have to work no more
 
And if I ever lose my eyes
if my colours all run dry
Yes if I ever lose my eyes
Oh if · · ·
I won't have to cry no more
 
And if I ever lose my legs
I won't moan, and I won't beg
Yes if I ever lose my legs
Oh if · · ·
I won't have to walk no more
 
And if I ever lose my mouth
all my teeth, north and south
Yes if I ever lose my mouth
Oh if · · ·
I won't have to talk · · ·
 
Did it take long to find me
I asked the faithful light
Did it take long to find me
And are you going to stay the night
 
I'm being followed by a moonshadow
moonshadow — moonshadow
Leaping and hopping on a moonshadow
moonshadow — moonshadow
moonshadow — moonshadow
moonshadow — moonshadow

TWO FINE PEOPLE

Now that I've passed your test
How can I prove to you baby
I'll never let you down
If I led you around, I'm sorry
But I never meant to worry you.... no
Now that I've kissed your breast
How can I prove to you baby
I'll never make you sad
If I ever had , do believe your tears
tears won't come back again
 
I love you,
Though the stars may fade
And mountains turn into sand
I love you,
'Til my body changes into an old man
I love you
And the song that I sing
Is the only way that I can explain
La la la la la la
You know I wish for you baby
Nothing but good times ahead
Anything that heaven can give you,
I can give you instead
La la la la la la
How could I lie to you baby,
I'll never lead you around
I'll take care of everything you need,
Darling every little need'll be found
I love you
Thought the time may change
And snowmen sleep in the sea
And I really only want you to want me
I love you
And the song that I sing is
The only way that I can explain
 
Now that you've shown your heart
I'll be right with you baby,
I'll never leave you alone
Anywhere you want me to be honey,
I'll be there to have and to hold
And now that the clouds roll back
Hold on to me baby
We're going never to land,
Flying on the power of love
Flying on the power of love.  
I love you
Though time may fade
and mountains turn into sand
I love you,
'Til the very same come back to the land
I love you and the song that I sing
Is the only way that I can explain
 
Two fine people should love each other
Two fine people should help each other

PEACE TRAIN

Now I've been happy lately
thinking about the good things to come
And I believe it could be
something good has begun
 
Oh I've been smiling lately
dreaming about the world as one
And I believe it could be
some day it's going to come
 
Cause out on the edge of darkness
there rides a peace train
Oh peace train take — this country
come take me home again
 
Now I've been smiling lately
thinking about the good things to come
And I believe it could be
something good has begun
 
Oh peace train sounding louder
Glide on the peace train
Come on now peace train
Yes, peace train holy roller
Everyone jump upon the peace train
Come on now peace train
 
Get your bags together
go bring your good friends too
Cause it's getting nearer
it soon will be with you
Come and join the living
it's not so far from you
And it's getting nearer
soon it will all be true
 
Oh peace train sounding louder
Glide on the peace train
Come on now peace train
 
Now I've been crying lately
thinking about the world as it is
Why must we go on hating
why can't we live in bliss
Cause out on the edge of darkness
there rides a peace train
Oh peace train take this country
come take me home again
 
Oh peace train sounding louder
Glide on the peace train
Come on now peace train
Yes, peace train holy roller
Everyone jump upon the peace train
Come on come on come on
Yes come on the peace train
Yes it's the peace train
Come on now peace train
Oh, please train · · ·

FATHER AND SON

Father ;
It's not time to make a change
Just relax take it easy
You're still young that's your fault
there's so much you have to know
Find a girl settle down
If you want you can marry
Look at me, I am old but I'm happy
I was once like you are now
and I know that it's not easy
to be calm when you've found
something going on
But take your time, think a lot
why think of everything you've got
For you will still be here tomorrow
but your dreams may not
Son ;
How can I try to explain
'cause when I do he turns away again
It's always been the same same old story
From the moment I could talk
I was ordered to listen
Now there's a way
and I know
that I have to go away
I know I have to go
Father ;
It's not time
to make a change
Just sit down
take it slowly
You're still young
that's your fault,
there's so much
you have to go through
Find a girl settle down
if you want
you can marry,
Look at me
I am old but I'm happy
  Son ;
Away
away
away,
 
 
I know
I have to
make this
decision
alone
 
no
 
Son ;
All the times
that I've cried
keeping all the things
I knew inside
It's hard,
but it's
harder to ignore it
 
 
If they were right
I'd agree
but it's them they know
not me
Now there's a way
and I know
that I have to go away
I know I have to go.
  Father ;
Stay
stay
stay,
 
why
must
 
you go and
make this
decision
 
alone?

SITTING

Oh I'm on my way I know I am,
somewhere not so far from here
All I know is all I feel right now,
I feel the power growing in my hair
Sitting on my own not by myself,
everybody's here with me
I don't need to touch your face to know,
and I don't need to use my eyes to see
I keep on wondering if I sleep too long,
will I always wake up the same (or so)?
And keep on wondering if I sleep too long,
will I even wake up again or something
 
Oh I'm on my way I know I am,
but times there were when I thought not
Bleeding half my soul in bad company,
I thank the moon I had the strength to stop
I'm not making love to anyone's wishes,
only for that light I see
Cause when I'm dead and lowered low in my grave,
that's gonna be the only thing that's left of me
And if I make it to the waterside,
will I even find me a boat (or so)?
And if I make it to the waterside,
I'll be sure to write you a note or something
 
Oh I'm on my way I know I am,
somewhere not so far from here
All I know is all I feel right now,
I feel the power growing in my hair
Oh life is like a maze of doors and they all
open from the side you're on
Just keep on pushing hard boy, try as you may
You're going to wind up where you started from
You're going to wind up where you started from

MORNING HAS BROKEN

Morning has broken
Like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken
Like the first bird
Praise for the singing
Praise for the morning
Praise for them springing
Fresh from the Word
 
Sweet the rain's new fall
Sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall
On the first grass
Praise for the sweetness
Of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness
Where His feet pass
 
Mine is the sunlight
Mine is the morning
Born of the one light
Eden saw play
Praise with elation
Praise every morning
God's recreation
Of the new day
 
Morning has broken
Like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken
Like the first bird
Praise for the singing
Praise for the morning
Praise for them springing
Fresh from the Word

ANOTHER SATURDAY NIGHT

Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody
I've got some money 'cause I just got paid
Now how I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in an awful way.
 
I got in town a month ago
I seen a lot of girls since then,
If I could meet 'em I could get 'em
But as yet I haven't met 'em
That's how I'm in the state I'm in
 
Oh another Saturday night and I ain't go nobody
I've got some money 'cause I just got paid
Now how I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in an awful way.
 
Another fella told me
He has a sister that looked just fine
Instead of bein' my deliv'rance
She had a strange resem'blance
To a cat named Frankenstein.

Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody
I've got some money 'cause I just got paid
Now how I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in an awful way
