Let There Be Love
Let there be love, so I can be loved by you
In paradise avenue
Let there be life, so everyone lives to love
Let it happen to me and you

I am a man, so take me for what I am
I'll never have everything, but let there be love
Let there be love, let there be love

I can be nothing, I can be something
I've got to give you my life
I'm tired of living without your giving
I've got to get you for my wife

Feeling's getting stronger
Can't hold on much longer
I never begged, but I'm begging now

Let there be love, so I can be loved by you
On paradise avenue, oh yo
Let there be life, so we can live to love
And let it be both of us

I am a man, so take me for what I am
I'll never have everything, but let there be love
Let there be love, let there be loveback to top
Kitty Can
Eve never pleases me and kitty can
Eve never pleases me and kitty can

When kitty smiles, the world stands still
I see a thousand golden daffodils
But when she cries, the world just dies
I see a million tears in kitty's eyes

Eve never pleases me and kitty can
Eve never pleases me and kitty can
Ah, ah, ah ah ah

Now eve is bad and treats me cruel
She loves to see me looking like a fool
I find a way with words I say
To be in love in such a lonely way

Eve never pleases me and kitty can
Eve never pleases me and kitty can
Ah, ah, ah ah ah

Now they are two and I am one
I cannot fall in love with everyone
So I must choose between the two
Made up my mind, now I am choosing you

Eve never pleases me and kitty can
Eve never pleases me and kitty can
Ah, ah, ah ah ahback to top
In the Summer of His Years
In the summer of his years he would always smile;
He would laugh ev'ry day if he was here to stay.
For the summer of his years.

In the daylight of his dreams he would save his tears;
He would always hear when there was no one near
For the summer of his years.

Ah,ah, ah, ah , ah,
Ah,ah,ah, ah, ah,
Ah,ah,ah, ah, ah,
Ah,ah,ah,ah, ah, ah,
For the summer of his years,
For the summer of his years,
Ah,ah.back to top
Indian Gin and Whiskey Dry
All day, all night you feel as if the earth could fly.
Three more all for fine indian gin and whiskey dry,
Fine indian gin and whiskey dry.

Small town , closed down; there's nowhere else around to try.
Disturbingly a voice would cry,
Go home, no loan, you'll have you gin and whiskey dry,
You'll have your gin and whiskey dry.

Four ten, four men lining up for their handy brandy.
All's gone, you're none, came the bartender's reply.
But I've tried and I'm tied to indian gin and whiskey dry.

Down to Earth
Hello there, is there any air? can you slow me down?
Can you believe that what you see could never ever be so real somehow.
Down to earth, my merry men.
There's some help needed here and you're there.
You can see if you stand on your chair.
That there's millions and millions and
Millions and millions of people like

Hello there, do you really care? have you time to learn?
Could you believe that what you read
One thousand pages couldn't tell you why.
Down to earth, my merry men.
There's some help needed here and you're there.
You can see if you stand on your chair.
That there's millions and millions and
Millions and millions of people like you .

That there's millions and millions and
Millions and millions of people like you.back to top
Such a Shame
All that I hear doesn't feel right. Don't
call me 'till you're all right. I listened
and I heard but don't tell me. La de da.. Once in a
while he says good night. Will I care if
sometimes he is right? What a shame, it's
the same each day. La de da... Oh how I
tried! I just sat
and then I cried. Maybe I'm wrong
or will I find out when I'm gone? There is so much fun
in my leisure. Don't bother me, man, just stay there. If it's a sin, I'll
convert me astray. La de da... Come be home with me,
it's not a shame for you to
see Oh
let it be and you'll miss reality.back to top
I've Gotta Get a Message to You
The preacher talked to me and he smiled,
Said, "Come and walk with me, come and walk one more mile.
Now for once in your life you're alone,
but you ain't got a dime, there's no time for the phone."

I've just got to get a message to you, hold on, hold on.
One more hour and my life will be through, hold on, hold on.

I told him I'm in no hurry,
but if I broke her heart, won't you tell her I'm sorry.
And for once in my life I'm alone,
and I've got to let her know just in time before I go.

I've just go to get a message to you, hold on, hold on.
One more hour and my life will be through, hold on, hold on.

Well I laughed but that didn't hurt,
and it's only her love that keeps me wearing this dirt.
Now I'm crying but deep down inside,
well I did it to him, now it's my turn to die.

I've just got to get a message to you, hold on, hold on.
One more hour and my life will be through, hold on, hold onback to top
Idea
I been thinking sitting on a pole.
I'm getting sick of doing what I'm told.
Just me and the mirror and my brain.
But that was when I got an idea.
Came like a gun and shot in my ear.
Don't you think it's time you got up and stood alone?

Fifteen years I lay down on the ground.
I couldn't feel any noise or hear any sound.
Fifteen million years I spent down the line.
But that was when I got an idea.
Came like a gun and shot in my ear.
Don't you think it's time you got up and stood alone?
Get up and stand alone

Music

That was when I got an idea.
Came like a gun and shot in my ear.
Don't you think it's time you got up and stood alone?
Get up and stand alone.

That's when I got an idea (repeat and fade out)back to top
When the Swallows Fly
I wander lonely as a cloud
I keep my head above the crowd
Ain't nobody else as big as me
But I must remember friends
What has to start just has to end
Everybody's got a destiny

And I know when the swallows flies
Yes I know, and the earth just dies
Then I'll be told what I am
The swallow and me

I'll look after number one
I'll forget the beggar's son
Everybody's got to stay alive
I'll keep a-walking amongst the clouds
I'll keep my head above the crowd
I'll watch them live, I'll watch them die

And I know when the swallows flies
Yes I know, and the earth just dies
Then I'll be told what I am
The swallow and meback to top
I Have Decided to Join the Airforce
Mother, I'm going to join the Air Force today.
I don't care what the neighbors may say,
But I'm going to join the Air Force today.

Mother,I don't care what my father might think.
Perhaps it's going to drive him to drink.
But I don't care what my father might think.
Don't ask me why, it's my mind and it's right.
Don't ask me why, it's my mind ,
It's better, it's better than being alone,
alone on the ground. Now I find

Mother,I've got to join the Air Force you see,
I've seen my friends and they all agree
That's it's better than joining the army or going to sea

Mother,I've go to join the Air Force you see
I've seen my friends and they all agree.
That's it's better then joining the army or going to sea.
Mother, Mother, Mother.back to top
I Started a Joke
I started a joke, which started the whole world crying,
But I didn't see that the joke was on me, oh no.

I started to cry, which started the whole world laughing,
Oh, if I'd only seen that the joke was on me.

I looked at the skies, running my hands over my eyes,
And I fell out of bed, hurting my head from things that I'd said.

Til I finally died, which started the whole world living,
Oh, if I'd only seen that the joke was on me.

I looked at the skies, running my hands over my eyes,
And I fell out of bed, hurting my head from things that I'd said.

'til I finally died, which started the whole world living,
Oh, if I'd only seen that the joke was one me.back to top
Kilburn Towers
I am a bird; watch me go drifting by.
With my feathers of power I laugh as the hours go slowly by.
That could mean ev'rything.
I am a street watching the people walk.
As I listen their conversations glisten as they start to talk.
Then I hear ev'rything.

Little white jug, me and kilburn towers,
As we sit on the hill and we drink and we swill
Till the early hours,
Then I am ev'rything.
Little white jug and me and kilburn towers

(music)
That could mean ev'rything.

Little white jug, me and kilburn towers,
As we sit on the hill and we drink and we swill
Till the early hours,
Then I am ev'rything

Little white jug and me and kilburn towers(repeat 4 times)back to top
Swan Song
This is my swan song. whatever I do now, I do it well.
This is my swan song. I fell in love with you I love you well.
And if the lord provides the music for the world around to sing,
My love will build a castle in the air.

This is my last chance, a chance to show the world that I am strong.
This is my last dance. I'm walking off the floor where I belong.
And if the lord provides the music for the world around to sing,
My love will build a castle in the air.

(music) la.....

And if the lord provides the music for the world around to sing,
My love will build a castle in the air.

This is my swan song. I fell in love with you , I love you well,
I love you well, I love you well.back to top
