all Joe Cocker lyrics



Civilized Man
You made me need you
Need you so bad
Would you believe
And never so mad, oh yeah
Double cross me once, and never cross me again
Now you're running 'round looking for some sympathy
Well you know as well as I that we're history

You're lucky, I'm a civlized man
You're lucky, I'm a civilized man
Oh yeah, a civilized man

A poison arrow, right from the start
Right down to zero, you went for my heart
Oh yeah
You've been hoo doo, voodoo
Start the fire again
Now you ask me to forget all you've brought me to
When you know as well as I you've got it coming to you

You're lucky, I'm a civlized man
You're lucky, I'm a civilized man
Oh yeah, a civilized man

You've been hoo doo, voodoo
Start the fire again
Now you're running 'round looking for some sympathy
Well you know as well as I that we're history

You're lucky, I'm a civlized man
You're lucky, I'm a civilized man
Oh you're so lucky baby
For I'm a civilized boy
Oh yeah
That's what I am, ohback to top
There Goes My Baby
[Originally by The Drifters]

There goes my baby
Moving on down the line
Wondering where, wondering where
He is bound

I broke his heart
And made him cry
Now I'm alone, so all alone
What can I do, what can I do

Just wanna know
Does he love me
Does he really love me
Or is he just playing
Me for a fool

I wonder why he left me
Why did he leave me so all alone
So all alone

I was gonna tell him that I loved him
And that I need him
Beside my side
To be my guide

I wanna know
Where is my baby
I want my baby
I need my baby

I was gonna tell him that I loved him
And that I need him

Beside my side
To be my guide

I wanna know where is my
Where is my baby
I need my baby
I need my babyback to top
Come On In
Come on in, Look around
Try to see what's going down
We're gonna sing our songs to you
We hope it makes you feel good, too

Come on in, Stay awhile
We're gonna try to make you smile
Rock and roll gets in your soul
Makes you feel so natural, yeah!

We'd like to try to make you happy
Now you can be just what you want to be
So let's be friends no matter what you see

Come on in
Let yourself go
Come on in
Ow! It's Rock and Roll

[Instrumental]

Come on in, Stay awhile
We're gonna try to make you smile
Rock and roll gets in your soul
Makes you feel so natural, yeah!back to top
Tempted
(Difford/Tilbrook)

I bought a toothbrush, some toothpaste
A flannel for my face
Pyjamas, a hairbrush
New shoes and a case
I said to my reflection
Let's get out of this place
Past the church and the steeple
The laundry on the hill
Billboards and the buildings
Memories of it still
Keep calling and calling
But forget it all
I know I will

Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
What's been going on
Now that you have gone
There's no other
Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered

I'm at the car park, the airport
The baggage carousel
The people keep on crowding
I'm wishing I was well
I said it's no occasion
It's no story I could tell

At my bedside empty pocket
A foot without a sock
Your body gets much closer
I fumble for the clock
Alarmed by the seduction
I wish that it would stop

I bought a novel, some perfume
A fortune all for you
But it's not my conscience
That hates to be untrue
I asked of my reflection
Tell me what is there to doback to top
Long Drag Off a Cigarette
(McNally)

She was sittin' there kinda' distant
Eyes half closed
She took a long drag off a cigarette
And let it real slow

I felt something click in between her and me
That's when she turned around and said
"Hey, Long time no see"
Looks like luck's been on your side
Knock on wood
I don't know what or who finally got through to you
'Coz I never could
Me, I keep walking back into the fire
Hey, is being confused some kind of sin?
But tonight I'm gonna turn around and walk right outa' here
Before I get back into trouble again

Man I feel kinda' distant
Layin' here with my eyes half closed
I'm gonna take a long drag off a cigarette
And let it out real slowback to top
Crazy in Love
(McCormick/Stevens)

Ain't funny how time
Steals the feelings from a love affair
And there's no place to lay the blame
Cause it ain't a case of no one cares
Helplessly we just watch it fade away
Neither of us will admit it
But we're both aching to say
Weeooh I miss the days when we were
Crazy in love
When you weren't so sure of me
And I had my little jealousies
Weeooh bring back the days when we were
Crazy in love
I want to feel that way again
Remember when
We were crazy in love
It used to be so easy
One touch and I was high
I could get intoxicated
Just by looking in your eyes
Baby ain't there anything we can do
Cause I know you're missing me
As much as I've been missing you
Weeooh I miss the days when we were
Crazy in love
When you weren't so sure of me
And I had my little jealousies
Weeooh bring back the days when we were
Crazy in love
I want to feel that way again
Remember when
We were crazy in love
We were more than best of friends
We were crazy in loveback to top
Even a Fool Would Let Go
(Tom Snow / Kerry Chater)

It's funny how love goes
Cause I know this will never work out
But darlin' my love grows
Even though there's noreason to doubt
This can never be
You keep sayin' it's wrong
Neither of us is free
Still I want to hold on
When even a fool would let go
Cause she knows that there's no use in tryin'
Even a child would say no
When she knows that she'll end up crying
Tell me now it is wise holding you
When even a fool would let go

My love is no reason
Like the words in a song that don't rhyme
My love's got no season
I just know that it's there all the time
Baby just you and me
I can't believe that's wrong
Thinkin' 'bout you and me
Makes me want to hold on
|: When even a fool would let go
Cause she knows there's no use tryin'
Even a child would say no
When she knows that she'll end up crying
Tell me now is it wise holding you
When even a fool would let go :|
When even a fool would let goback to top
