Danny's Song
People smile and tell me I'm the lucky one
And we've just begun, think I'm gonna have a son
He will be like she and me, as free as a dove
Conceived in love, sun is gonna shine above

And even though we ain't got money
I'm so in love with ya, honey
And everything will bring a chain of love
And in the mornin' when I rise
You bring a tear of joy to my eyes
And tell me, everything is gonna be alright

Seems as though a month ago I was Beta-Chi
Never got high, oh, I was a sorry guy
And now a smile, a face, a girl that shares my name
Now I'm through with the game, this boy will never be the same

Pisces, Virgo rising is a very good sign
Strong and kind, and the little boy is mine
Now I see a family where the once was none
Now we've just begun, yeah we're gonna fly to the sun

Love the girl who holds the world in a paper cup
Drink it up, love her and she'll bring you luck
And if you find she helps your mind, buddy, take her home
Try to earn what lover's own, don't leave her aloneback to top
Leaving on a Jet Plane
Band: Me First And The Gimme Gimmes
Song: Leaving On a Jet Plane
Tabber: Kryx (andrewpogue@hotmail.com)

Verse 1
All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go,
I'm standing here outside your door,
I hate to wake you up to say good-bye.
But the dawn is breakin', it's early morn',
The taxi's waitin'
He's blowin' his horn,
Already I'm so lonesome I could die.

Chorus
So kiss me and smile for me,
Tell me that you'll wait for me,
Hold me like you'll never let me go.
Cos I'm leavin' on a jet plane,
Don't know when I'll be back again,
Oh, babe, I hate to go.

Verse 2
There's so many times I've let you down
So many times I've fucked around,
I tell you now they don't mean a thing.
Every place I go I'll think of you,
Every song I sing I'll sing for you,
When I come back I'll bring your wedding ring.

Chorus
So kiss me and smile for me,
Tell me that you'll wait for me,
Hold me like you'll never let me go.
Cos I'm leavin' on a jet plane,
Don't know when I'll be back again,
Oh, babe, I hate to go.

Verse 3
Now the time has come to leave you,
One more time let me kiss you,
Then close your eyes I'll be on my way.
Dream about the days to come
When I won't have to leave alone,
About the times I won't have to say:

Chorus
So kiss me and smile for me,
Tell me that you'll wait for me,
Hold me like you'll never let me go.
Cos I'm leavin' on a jet plane,
Don't know when I'll be back again,
Oh, babe, I hate to go.

Outro
I'm leavin' on a jet plane,
Don't know when I'll be back again,
Oh, babe, I hate to go.back to top
Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard
The mama pajama rolled out of bed
And she ran to the police station
When the papa found out he began to shout
And he started the investigation
It's against the law
It was against the law
What the mama saw
It was against the law

The mama looked down and spit on the ground
Everytime my name gets mentioned
The papa said oy if I get that boy
I'm gonna stick him in the house of detention
Well I'm on my way
I don't know where I'm going
I'm on my way I'm taking my time
But I done know where
Goodbye to Rosie the queen of Corona
See you, me and Julio
Down by the schoolyard
See you, me and Julio
Down by the schoolyard
Me and Julio down by the schoolyard

In a couple of days they come and
Take me away
But the press let the story leak
And when the radical priest
Come to get me released
We was all on the cover of Newsweek
And I'm on my way
I don't know where I'm going
I'm on my way I'm taking my time
But I don't know where
Goodbye to Rosie the queen of Corona
See you, me and Julio
Down by the schoolyard
See you, me and Julio
Down by the schoolyard
See you, me and Julio
Down by the schoolyardback to top
One Tin Soldier
Listen children to a story
that was written long ago
Bout a kingdom on a mountain
and the valley far below
On the mountain was a treasure,
buried deep beneath the stone
And the valley people swore
they'd have it for their own.

So go ahead and hate your neighbor,
go ahead and cheat a friend
Do it in the name of heaven,
you can justify it in the end
There won't be any trumpets blowing,
come the judgment day
But on the bloody morning after,
one tin soldier rides away.

So the people from the valley
sent a message up the hill
Asking for the buried treasure,
tons of gold for which they'd kill
Came an answer from the kingdom,
"with our brothers we will share
All the secrets of the mountain,
all the riches buried there."

Now the valley cried with anger,
"Mount your horses, draw your swords"
And they killed the mountain people,
so they won their just rewards
Now they stood beside the treasure,
on the mountain, dark and red
Turned the stone and looked beneath it,
"Peace on earth" was all it said.back to top
Uptown Girl
She's been living in her uptown world
I bet she never had a back street guy
I bet her mama never told her why

I'm gonna try for an uptown girl
She's been living in her white bread world
As long as anyone with hot blood can
And now she's looking for a downtown man
That's what I am

And when she knows what
She wants from her time
And when she wakes up
And makes up her mind

She'll see I'm not so tough
Just because
I'm in love with an uptown girl
You know I've seen her in her uptown world
She's getting tired of her high class toys
And all her presents from her uptown boys
She's got a choice

Uptown girl
You know I can't afford to buy her pearls
But maybe someday when my ship comes in
She'll understand what kind of guy I've been
And then I'll win

And when she's walking
She's looking so fine
And when she's talking
She'll say that she's mine

She'll say I'm not so tough
Just because
I'm in love
With and uptown girl
She's been living in her white bread world
As long as anyone with hot blood can
And now she's looking for a downtown man
That's what I am

Uptown girl
She's my uptown girl
You know I'm in love
With an uptown girl

My uptown girl
You know I'm in love
With an uptown girl
My uptown girl
You know I'm in love
With an uptown girl

I Am a Rock
A winter's day
In a deep and dark December;
I am alone,
Gazing from my window to the streets below
On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

I've built walls,
A fortress deep and mighty,
That none may penetrate.
I have no need of friendship; friendship causes pain.
It's laughter and it's loving I disdain.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

Don't talk of love,
But I've heard the words before;
It's sleeping in my memory.
I won't disturb the slumber of feelings that have died.
If I never loved I never would have cried.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

I have my books
And my poetry to protect me;
I am shielded in my armor,
Hiding in my room, safe within my womb.
I touch no one and no one touches me.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

And a rock feels no pain;
And an island never cries.back to top
Sweet Caroline
Where it began
I can't begin to knowin'
But then I know it's growin' strong

Was in the spring
And spring became the summer
Who'd have believed you'd come along

Hands, touchin' hands
Reachin' out
Touchin' me
Touchin' you

Sweet Caroline
Good times never seemed so good
I've been inclined
To believe they never would

But now I
Look at the night
And it don't seem so lonely
We fill it up with only two
And when I hurt
Hurtin' runs off my shoulders
How can I hurt when I'm with you

Warm, touchin' warm
Reachin' out
Touchin' me
Touchin' you

Oh, no, noback to top
Seasons in the Sun
Goodbye to you, my trusted friend
we've known each other since we were nine or ten;
together we've climbed hills and trees,
learned of love and A-B-C's,
skinned our hearts and skinned our knees.

Goodbye my friend, it's hard to die,
when all the birds are singing in the sky;
now that spring is in the air,
pretty girls are every where;
think of me and I'll be there.

We had joy, we had fun,
we had seasons in the sun;
but the hills that we climb
were just seasons out of time.

Goodbye, Papa, please pray for me,
I was the black sheep of the family;
you tried to teach me right from wrong,
but too much wine and too much song,
wonder how I got along.

Goodbye, Papa, it's hard to die,
when all the birds are singing in the sky;
now that spring is in the air,
little children every where,
when you see them, I'll be there.

we had joy, we had fun,
we had seasons in the sun;
but the wine and the song,
like the seasons are all gone.

we had joy, we had fun,
we had seasons in the sun;
but the wine and the song,
like the seasons are all gone.

Goodbye, Rochelle, my little one,
you gave me love and helped me find the sun;
and every time that I was down,
you would always come around
and get my feet back on the ground.

Goodbye, Rochelle, it's hard to die,
when all the birds are singing in the sky;
now that spring is in the air,
with the flowers every where
I wish that we could both be there.

one, two, three,

we had joy, we had fun,
we had seasons in the sun;
but the stars we could reach
were just starfish on a beach

we had joy, we had fun,
we had seasons in the sun;
but the stars we could reach
were just starfish on a beach

we had joy, we had fun
we had seasons in the sun;
but the wine and the song,
like the seasons are all gone.

All our lives we had fun,
we had seasons in the sun;
but the hills that we climb
were just seasons out of time.back to top
Fire and Rain
Just yesterday morning they let me know you were gone
Susan the plans they made put an end to you
I walked out this morning and I wrote down this song
I just can't remember who to send it to

I've seen fire and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that I'd see you again

Won't you look down upon me, Jesus
You've got to help me make a stand
You've just got to see me through another day
My body's aching and my time is at hand
And I won't make it any other wayback to top
Nobody Does It Better
Makes me feel sad for the rest
Nobody does it half as good as you
Baby you're the best

I wasn't looking
But somehow you found me
I tried to hide from your love light
But like heaven above me
The spy who loved me
Is keeping all my secrets safe tonight

And nobody does it better
Though sometimes I wish someone could
Nobody does it quite the way you do
Why'd you have to be so good

The way that you hold me
Whenever you hold me
There's some kind of magic inside you
That keeps me from running
But just keep it coming
How'd you learn to do the things you do

And nobody does it better
Makes me feel sad for the rest
Nobody does it half as good as you
Baby, baby, darling you're the best

Baby you're the bestback to top
Mandy
I remember all my life, raining down as cold as ice
shadows of a man, a face through a window
crying in the night the night goes into morning (just another day)
happy people pass my way looking in their eyes I see a memory
I never realized how happy you made me

Oh Mandy,
well you came and you gave without taking,
but I sent you away!, Oh Mandy,
well you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
and I need you today....oh Mandy!!!

Standing on the edge of time,
walked away when love was mine
caught up in a world of uphill climbing
the tears are in my eyes and nothing is rhyming!!!

Yesterday's a dream. I face the morning
crying on a breeze, the pain is calling...back to top
