Substitute
(Peter Townshend)

You think we look pretty good together
You think my shoes are made of leather

But I'm a substitute for another guy
I look pretty tall but my heels are high
The simple things you see are all complicated
I look pretty young, but I'm just back-dated, yeah

Substitute your lies for fact
I can see right through your plastic mac
I look all white, but my dad was black
My fine looking suit is really made out of sack

I was born with a plastic spoon in my mouth
The north side of my town faced east, and the east was facing south
And now you dare to look me in the eye
Those crocodile tears are what you cry
It's a genuine problem, you won't try
To work it out at all you just pass it by, pass it by

Substitute me for him
Substitute my coke for gin
Substitute you for my mum
At least I'll get my washing doneback to top
Out Of Time
(Mick Jagger/Keith Richards)

You don't know what's going on
You've been away for far too long
You can't come back and think you are still mine
You're out of touch, my baby
My poor discarded baby
I said, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

Well, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
I said, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
You are all left out
Out of there without a doubt
'Cause baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

You thought you were a clever girl
Giving up your social whirl
But you can't come back and be the first in line, on no
You're obsolete my baby
My poor old-fashioned baby
I said baby, baby, baby you're out of time

Well, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
I said, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
Yes, you are left out
Out of there without a doubt
'Cause baby, baby, baby, you're out of timeback to top
The Shape Of Things To Come
(Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil)

There's a new sun Risin' up angry in the sky
And there's a new voice Sayin' "we're not afraid to die"
Let the old world make believe It's blind and deaf and dumb
But nothing can change the shape of things to come

There are changes Lyin' ahead in every road
And there are new thoughts Ready and waiting to explode
When tomorrow is today The bells may toll for some
But nothing can change the shape of things to come
The future's comin' in, now Sweet and strong
Ain't no-one gonna hold it back for long

There are new dreams Crowdin' out old realities
There's revolution Sweepin' in like a fresh new breeze
Let the old world make believe It's blind and deaf and dumb
(But) nothing can change the shape of things [4X]

Somebody To Love
(Darby Slick)

When the truth is found to be lies And all the joys within you dies
Don't you want somebody to love Don't you need somebody to love
Wouldn't you love somebody to love You better find somebody to
love

When the garden flowers baby are dead yes And your mind is full of red
Don't you want somebody to love Don't you need somebody to love
Wouldn't you love somebody to love You better find somebody to
love
Your eyes, I say your eyes may look like his But in your head baby i'm
afraid you don't know where it is
Don't you want somebody to love Don't you need somebody to love
Wouldn't you love somebody to love You better find somebody to
love

Tears are running ah running down your breast And your friends baby
they
treat you like a guest
Don't you want somebody to love Don't you need somebody to love
Wouldn't you love somebody to love You better find somebody to

When I Was Young
(Eric Burdon/John Weider/Victor Briggs/DanielMcCulloch/Barry Jenkins)

The rooms were so much colder then My father was a soldier then
And times were very hard When I was young When I was young

I smoked my first cigarette at ten And for girls I had a that yen
And I had quite a ball When I was young

When I was young it was more important
Pain more painful and laughter much
louder, yeah
When I was young When I was young

I met my first love at thirteen She was brown, and I was pretty green
And I learned quite a lot When I was young When I was young

When I was young it was more important
Pain more painful and laughter much
louder, yeah
When I was young
When I was young

My faith was so much stronger then I believed in fellow men
And I was so much older then When I was young
When I was young When I was young...back to top
7 And 7 Is
(Arthur Lee)

When I was a boy I thought about the times I'd be a man
I'd sit inside a bottle and pretend that I was in a can
In my lonely room I'd sit my mind in an ice cream cone
You can throw me if you wanna 'cause I'm a bone and I go
Oop-ip-ip oop-ip-ip, yeah!

If I don't start cryin' it's because that I have got no eyes
My father's in the fireplace and my dog lies hypnotized
Through a crack of light I was unable to find my way
Trapped inside a night but I'm a day and I go
Oop-ip-ip oop-ip-ip, yeah!

One... Two... Three... Four!back to top
My Back Pages
(Bob Dylan)

Crimson flames tied through my ears
Rollin' high and mighty traps pounced with fire on flaming roads
Using ideas as my maps "We'll meet on edges, soon," Said I
Proud 'neath heated brow ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now
Half-wracked prejudice leaped forth "Rip down all hate," I screamed
Lies that life is black and white spoke from my skull I dreamed
Romantic facts of musketeers foundation deep, somehow
Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now
In a soldier's stance, I aimed my hand at the mongrel dogs who teach
Fearing not that I'd become my enemy in the instant that I preach
My pathway led by confusion boats mutiny from stern to bow
Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now
Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now
Yes, my guard stood hard when abstract threats too noble to neglect
Deceived me into thinking I had something to protect
Good and bad, I define these terms quite clear, no doubt, somehow
Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now
Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now
Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that nowback to top
Have You Ever Seen The Rain?
(J.C. Fogerty)

Someone told me long ago there's a calm before the storm,
I know; it's been comin' for some time
When it's over, so they say, it'll rain a sunny day,
I know; shinin' down like water
I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?
I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?
Comin' down on a sunny day
Yesterday, and days before, sun is cold and rain is hard,
I know; been that way for all my time
'Til forever, on it goes through the circle, fast and slow,
I know; it can't stop, I wonder
I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?
I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?
Comin' down on a sunny day
Yeah!
I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?
I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?
Comin' down on a sunny day
Someone told me long ago there's a calm before the storm,
I know; it's been comin' for some time
When it's over, so they say, it'll rain a sunny day,
I know; shinin' down like water
I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?
I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?
Comin' down on a sunny dayback to top
Surf City
(Brian Wilson/ Jan Berry)

I bought a pretty cool wagon and we call it a woody
Surf City, here we come
You know, it's not very cherry, it's an oldie but a goody
Surf City, here we come
Well, it ain't got a backseat or a rear window
But it still gets me where I wanna go
And we're goin' Surf City, 'Cause it's two to one
You know we're goin' Surf City, gonna have some fun
Yeah we're goin' Surf City, 'cause it's two to one
You know we're goin' Surf City, gonna have some fun, now
They say they never roll the scoops, because there's always something
goin'
Surf City, here we come
You know, they're either out surfin' or they got a party growin'
Surf City, here we come
Well it's two swingin' honey for every guy
And all you gotta do is just wink your eye
And we're goin' Surf City, 'Cause it's two to one
You know we're goin' Surf City, gonna have some fun
Yeah we're goin' Surf City, 'cause it's two to one
You know we're goin' Surf City, gonna have some fun, now
And if my woody breaks down, I'll get somewhere as a surfer
Surf City, here we come
I'll strap my board to my back and hitch a ride in my wet-suit
Surf City, here we come
And when I get to Surf City, I'll be shootin' the curl
And checkin' out the parties for surfer girlsback to top
Surfin' Safari
(Brian Wilson/Mike Love)

Let's go surfin' now Everybody's learning how
Come on and safari with me (Come on and safari with...)
Early in the morning we'll be startin' out Some honeys will be coming
along
We're loading up our Woody With our boards inside
And headin' out singing our song

Come on (surfin') baby wait and see (surfin' safari)
Yes I'm gonna (surfin') take you surfin' (surfin' safari) with me
Come along (surfin') baby wait and see (surfin' safari)
Yes I'm gonna (surfin') take you surfin' (surfin' safari) with me
Let's go surfin' now Everybody's learning how
Come on and safari with me (Come on and safari with...)
At Huntington and Malibu They're shooting the pier
At Rincon they're walking the nose We're going on safari to the islands
this year
So if you're coming get ready to go

Come on (surfin') baby wait and see (surfin' safari)
Yes I'm gonna (surfin') take you surfin' (surfin' safari)with me
Come along (surfin') baby wait and see (surfin' safari)
Yes I'm gonna (surfin') take you surfin' (surfin' safari)with me

Let's go surfin' now Everybody's learning how
Come on and safari with me (Come on and safari with...)

They're anglin' in Laguna in Cerro Azul They're kicking out in Dohini

I tell you surfing's mighty wild It's getting bigger every day
From Hawaii to the shores of Peru

Come on (surfin') baby wait and see (surfin' safari)
Yes I'm gonna (surfin') take you surfin' (surfin' safari) with me
Come along (surfin') baby wait and see (surfin' safari)
Yes I'm gonna (surfin') take you surfin' (surfin' safari) with me

Let's go surfin' now Everybody's learning how
Come on and safari with me (Come on and safari with...)

With me Surfin' Safari.
