Bridge over Troubled Water
Simon And Garfunkel - Bridge Over Troubled Water




When you're weary, feeling small
When tears are in your eyes,
I will dry them all
I'm on your side
When times get rough
And friends just can't be found

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

When you're down and out
When you're on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you
I'll take your part
When darkness comes
And pain is all around

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on silver girl
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine
When you need a friend
I'm sailing right behind

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mindback to top
El Condor Pasa (If I Could)
Simon And Garfunkel - El Condor Pasa ( If I Could)




I'd rather be a sparrow than a snail
Yes I would, if I could, I surely would

I'd rather be a hammer than a nail
Yes I would, if I only could, I surely would

Away, I'd rather sail away
Like a swan that's here and gone
A man gets tired out to the ground
He gives the world
Its saddest sound
Its saddest sound

I'd rather be a forest than a street
Yes I would, if I could, I surely would

I'd rather feel the earth beneath my feet
Yes I would, if I only could, I surely wouldback to top

Keep the Customer Satisfied
Simon And Garfunkel - Keep The Customer Satisfied




Gee but it's great to be back home
Home is where I want to be
I've been on the road so long my friend
And if you came along
I know you couldn't disagree
It's the same old story, yeah
Everywhere I go
I get slandered, libeled
I hear words I never heard in the Bible
And I'm one step ahead of the shoe shine
Two steps away from the county line
Just trying to keep my customers satisfied
Satisfied

Deputy Sheriff said to me
"Tell me what you come here for, boy
You better get your bags and flee
You're in trouble, boy
And now you're heading into more"
It's the same old story
Everywhere I go
I get slandered, libeled
I hear words I never heard in the Bible
And I'm one step ahead of the shoe shine
Two steps away from the county line
Just trying to keep my customers satisfied
Satisfied

And it's the same old story
Everywhere I go
I get slandered, libeled
I hear words I never heard in the Bible
And I'm so tired
I'm oh so tired
But I'm trying to keep my customers satisfied

So Long, Frank Lloyd Wright
Simon And Garfunkel - So Long, Frank Lloyd Wright




So long, Frank Lloyd Wright
I can't believe your song is gone so soon
I barely learned the tune
So soon
So soon

I'll remember Frank Lloyd Wright
All of the nights we'd harmonize till dawn
I never laughed so long
So long
So long

Architects may come and
Architects may go and
Never change your point of view
When I run dry
I stop a while and think of you

Architects may come and
Architects may go and
Never change your point of view

So long, Frank Lloyd Wright
All of the nights we'd harmonize till dawn
I never laughed so long
So long
So longback to top
The Boxer
Simon and Garfunkel - The Boxer




I am just a poor boy, though my story's seldom told,
I have squandered,
I have squandered my resistance,
For a pocket full of mumbles, such are promises.

All lies and jests, still a man hears what he wants to hear,
And disregards the rest.
Mmm-hmm-mmm...

When I left my home and my family, I was no more than a boy,
In the company of strangers,
In the quiet of a railway station,
Running scared.

Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters where the ragged people go,
Looking for the places
Only they would know.

Lie-la-lie,
Lie-la-lie-lie, lie-la-lie,
Lie-la-lie, la-la-la-la-la-la-la-lie
Lie-la-la-la-lie.

Asking only workmen's wages, I go looking for a job,
But I get no offers,
Just a come-on from the whores
On Seventh Avenue.

I do declare, there were times when I was so lonesome,
I took some comfort there,
Ohh, la-la-la.

Now, the years are rolling by me, they are rocking evenly,
And I am older than I once was,
And younger than I'll be,
That's not unusual.

No, it isn't strange, after changes upon changes,
We are more or less the same,
After changes, we are more or less the same.

Lie-la-lie,
Lie-la-lie-lie, lie-la-lie,
Lie-la-lie, la-la-la-la-la-la-la-lie
Lie-la-la-la-lie.

And I'm laying out my winter clothes, wishing I was gone,
Going home,
Where the New York City winters aren't bleeding me,
Leading me to going home.

In the clearing stands a boxer, and a fighter by his trade,
And he carries the reminders of every glove that laid him down,
Or cut him til he cried out in his anger and his shame,
"I am leaving, I am leaving!" but the fighter still remains,
Yes, he still remains.

Lie-la-lie,
Lie-la-lie-lie, lie-la-lie,
Lie-la-lie, la-la-la-la-la-la-la-lie
Lie-la-la-la-lie.

Lie-la-lie,
Lie-la-lie-lie, lie-la-lie,
Lie-la-lie, la-la-la-la-la-la-la-lie
Lie-la-la-la-lie.back to top
Baby Driver
Simon And Garfunkel - Baby Driver




My daddy was the family bassman
My mamma was an engineer
And I was born one dark gray morn
With music coming in my ears
In my ears

They call me Baby Driver
And once upon a pair of wheels
Hit the road and I'm gone
What's my number
I wonder how your engines feel
Ba ba ba ba
Scoot down the road
What's my number
I wonder how your engines feel

My daddy was a prominent frogman
My mamma's in the Naval Reserve
When I was young I carried a gun
But I never got the chance to serve
I did not serve

They call me Baby Driver
And once upon a pair of wheels
Hit the road and I'm gone
What's my number
I wonder how your engines feel
Ba ba ba ba
Scoot down the road
What's my number
I wonder how your engines feel

My daddy got a big promotion
My mamma got a raise in pay
There's no one home, we're all alone
Oh come into my room and play
Yes we can play

I'm not talking about your pigtails
But I'm talking 'bout your sex appeal
Hit the road and I'm gone
What's my number
I wonder how your engines feel
Ba ba ba ba
Scoot down the road
What's my number
I wonder how your engines feelback to top
The Only Living Boy in New York
Simon And Garfunkel - The Only Living Boy In New York




Tom, get your plane right on time
I know your part'll go fine
Fly down to Mexico
Da-n-da-da-n-da-n-da and here I am
The only living boy in New York

I get the news I need on the weather report
Oh, I can gather all the news I need on the weather report
Hey, I've got nothing to do today but smile
Da-n-do-da-n-do-da-n-da-da and here I am
The only living boy in New York

Half of the time we're gone but we don't know where
And we don't know where

Here I am

Half of the time we're gone but we don't know where
And we don't know where

Tom, get your plane right on time
I know that you've been eager to fly now
Hey let your honesty shine, shine, shine now
Da-n-da-da-n-da-n-da-da
Like it shines on me
The only living boy in New York
The only living boy in New York

Here I am

Why Don't You Write Me
Simon And Garfunkel - Why Don't You Write Me




Why don't you write me
I'm out in the jungle
I'm hungry to hear you
Send me a card
I am waiting so hard
To be near you

Why don't you write?
Something is wrong
And I know I got to be there
Maybe I'm lost
But I can't make the cost
Of the airfare

Tell me why, why, why
Tell me why, why, why

Why don't you write me
A letter would brighten
My loneliest evening
Mail it today
If it's only to say
That you're leaving me

Monday morning, sitting in the sun
Hoping and wishing for the mail to come
Tuesday, never got a word
Wednesday, Thursday, ain't no sign
Drank half a bottle of iodine
Friday, woe is me
Gonna hang my body from the highest tree
Why don't you write me?back to top
Bye Bye Love
Simon And Garfunkel - Bye Bye Love




Bye bye love
Bye bye happiness
Hello loneliness
I think I'm gonna cry
Bye bye love
Bye bye sweet caress
Hello emptiness
I feel like I could die
Bye bye, my love, goodbye

There goes my baby
With someone new
She sure looks happy
I sure am blue
She was my baby
Till he stepped in
Goodbye to romance
That might have been

Bye bye love
Bye bye happiness
Hello loneliness
I think I'm gonna cry
Bye bye love
Bye bye sweet caress
Hello emptiness
I feel like I could die
Bye bye, my love, goodbye

I'm through with romance
I'm through with love
I'm through with counting
The stars above
And here's the reason
That I'm so free
My loving baby
Is through with me

Bye bye love
Bye bye happiness
Hello loneliness
I think I'm gonna cry
Bye bye love
Bye bye sweet caress
Hello emptiness
I feel like I could die
Bye bye, my love, goodbyeback to top
Song for the Asking
Simon And Garfunkel - Song For The Asking




Here is my song for the asking
Ask me and I will play
So sweetly, I'll make you smile

This is my tune for the taking
Take it, don't turn away
I've been waiting all my life

Thinking it over, I've been sad
Thinking it over, I'd be more than glad
To change my ways for the asking

Ask me and I will play
All the love that I hold insideback to top
