Blowin' in the Wind
How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
And how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they are forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind

How many years can a mountain exist
Before it is washed to the sea?
Yes, and how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free?
Yes, and how many times can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn't see?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind

The answer, my friends, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the windback to top
Sloop John B.
We come on the sloop John B
Grandfather and me
Around Nassau Town we did roam
Drinking all night
Got into a fight
Well I feel so broke up, I wanna go home

The first mate he got drunk
Broke in the captains bunk
The constable had to come and take him away
Sheriff John Stone
Why don't you leave me alone?
Well I feel so broke up I wanna go home

So hoist up the John B's sail
See how the mainsail sets
Call for the captain ashore
Let me go home, let me go home
I wanna go home
I feel so broke up, I wanna go home

The poor cook he caught the shits
And threw away all my grits
And then he took and ate up all of my corn
Let me go home
Why don't they let me go home?
This is the worst trip I've ever been onback to top
Wild World
Now that I've lost everything to you
You say you wanna start something new
And it's breaking my heart that you're leaving
Baby I'm grieving
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 girl
Oh baby baby it's a wild world
I'll always remember you just like a child girl

You know I've seen a lot of what the world can do
And it's breaking 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

Baby, 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 bewareback to top
Elenor
You got a thing about you
I just can't live without you
I really want you, Elenor, near me
Your looks intoxicate me
Even though your folks hate me
There's no one like you, Elenor, really

Elenor, gee I think you're swell
And you really do me well
You're my pride and joy, etcetera
Elenor, can I take the time
To ask you to speak your mind
Tell me that you love me better

I really think you're groovy
Let's go out to a movie
What do you say now, Elenor, can we?
They'll turn the lights way down low
Maybe we won't watch the show
I think I love you, Elenor, love meback to top
My Boyfriend's Back

Song: My Boyfriend's Back
Tabber: Kryx (andrewpogue@hotmail.com)

(N.B. I've seen some lyrics tabs with Hey-la... I reckon this is right.)

(Talking Intro)
He went away and you hung around and bothered me every night
when I wouldn't go out with you
you said some things that weren't very nice

My boyfriend's back and you're gonna be in trouble
(Hey Rah, Hey Rah - My Boyfriend's back)
If you see him coming, better cut out on the double
(Hey Rah, Hey Rah - My Boyfriend's back)
You been spreading lies that I was untrue
(Hey Rah, Hey Rah - My Boyfriend's back)
so look out now, cause he's coming after you
(Hey Rah, Hey Rah - My Boyfriend's back)

Yeah, he knows what you've been trying
And he knows that you've been lieing

He's been gone for such a long, long time
(Hey Rah, Hey Rah - My Boyfriend's back)
But now he's back and things'll be fine
(Hey Rah, Hey Rah - My Boyfriend's back)
You're gonna be sorry you were ever born
(Hey Rah, Hey Rah - My Boyfriend's back)
Cause he's kinda big and he's awful strong
(Hey Rah, Hey Rah - My Boyfriend's back)

Hey, he knows I wasn't cheatin'
Now you're gonna get your beatin'

What made you think he believe all your lies? (wa-ooh)
You're a big man now, but he'll cut you down to size (wa-ooh)

My boyfriend's back, he's gonna save my reputation
(Hey Rah, Hey Rah - My Boyfriend's back)
If I were you, I'd take a permanent vacation
(Hey Rah, Hey Rah - My Boyfriend's back)

Hey, I can see him comin'
Now you betta starta runnin'

Wa-ooh
Wa-ooh
Wa-ooh

My boyfriend's back, he's gonna save my reputation
(Hey Rah, Hey Rah - My Boyfriend's back)
If I were you, I'd take a permanent vacation
(Hey Rah, Hey Rah - My Boyfriend's back)

Hey, My Boyfriend's back
Hey, My Boyfriend's back
Hey, My Boyfriend's backback to top
Stand by Your Man
Sometimes it's hard to be a woman
Giving all your life to just one man
You'll have bad times, he'll have good times
Doing things that you don't understand
But if you love him, you'll forgive him
Even though he's hard to understand
And if you loved him
Oh be proud of him
Cause after all he's just a man

Stand by your man
Give him someone to cling to
And something warm to come to
When the nights are cold and lonely
Stand by your man
And tell the world you love him
Keep giving all the love you can
Stand by your man

Sometimes its hard to be a Gimme
Giving all your love to just one band
But if you love them
Please don't make fun of them
'Cause after all we're just a bandback to top
I Only Want to Be With You
I don't know what it is that makes me love you so
I only know I never want to let you go
'Cause you've started something
Oh can't you see?
That ever since we met yu've had a hold on me
It happens to be true
I only want to be with you

It doesn't matter where you go or what you do
I want to spend each moment of the day with you
Look what has happened with just one kiss
I never knew that I could be in love like this
It's crazy but it's true
I only want to be with you

You stopped and smiled at me
And asked if I'd care to dance
I fell into your open arms
And I didn't stand a chance
Now listen honey

I just want to be beside you everywhere
As long as we're together, honey, I don't care
'Cause you've started something
Oh can't you see?
That ever since we met you've had a hold on me
It happens to be true
I only want to be with you
No matter what you do
I only want to be with youback to top
Runaway
As I walk along I wonder what went wrong
With our love, a love that was so strong
And as I still walk on I think of the things we've done
Together, while our hearts were young

I'm a-walking in the rain
Tears are falling and I feel the pain
Wishing you were here by me
To end this misery, I wonder
I wa-wa-wa-wa-wonder, why
Why-why-why-why-why
She ran away, and I wonder
Where she will stay
My little runaway
A-run-run-run-run-runawayback to top
Different Drum
You and I travel to the beat of a different drum
Oh can't you tell by the way I run
Evertime you make eyes at me
You cry and moan and say it will work out
But honey child I've got my doubts
You can't see the forest for the trees

So don't get me wrong, it's not that I knock it
It's just that I am not in the market
For a boy who wants to love only me
Yeah and I ain't saying you ain't pretty
All I'm saying is I'm not ready
For any person, place or thing
To try and pull the reins in on me

So goodbye, I'll be leaving,
I see no sense in crying and grieving
We'll both live a lot longer,
if you live without meback to top
