Little Girl
(Steve Miller)

Oh little girl, all mine
Hey, you sure are fine
I'm gonna take you home
That's where you belong

Cause you were born to discover
You're made to love the good things
Yes, you were

Oh little girl, so fine
I'm goin' to make you mine
Reach out my hand
I know you understand

Cause you were born to discover
You're made to love the good things
Yes, you were

Let me hear you say I, I love you
Let me hear you say I, I love you
Let me hear you say I, I love you
Let me hear you say I, I love you

Cause you were born to discover
You're made to love the good things
Yes, you were

Come on

Let me hear you say I, I love you
Let me hear you say I, I love you
Let me hear you say I, I love you
Let me hear you say I, I love you

Cause you were born to discover
You're made to love the good things
Yes, you were
Come on

Just a Passin' Fancy in a Midnite Dream
(Steve Miller and Ben Sidran)

If you need me on a Monday and it's rainin'
You go down 'bout Tuesday afternoon
You'll be powerless and squirming by Wednesday
You know you can't get enough too soon

You won't know what kind of change I may play
You won't know, you won't know, you won't know
You won't care what your friends may say
Cause you're just a passin' fancy in a midnite dream

You begin to worry on a Wednesday
When you're temperature's goin' down slow
You call the doctor on Friday
But he says they don't even wanna know

Black magic's got a spell on you
Black magic's gonna do you in
Black magic got a spell on you
With black magic, you know you just can't win

When you feel my grip gettin' stronger
And there ain't a thing you can do
And you can't hold out much longer
I'll have your soul before I'm through

You won't know what kind of change I may throw
You won't care, you won't care, you won't care
You won't care what your friends, they may say
Cause you're just a passin' fancy in my midnite dream

When you feel my grip gettin' stronger
And there ain't a thing you can do
And you can't hold out much longer
You know your rectifying time is due
If you feel your liver shiver
And you know that I'm gonna mess with you
And your soul begins to quiver
There won't be any mercy for you when I'm through, babyback to top
Don't Let Nobody Turn You Around
(Steve Miller)

Well don't you let nobody turn you 'round
Turn you 'round, turn you 'round
Well don't you let nobody turn you 'round
You got to keep on walkin', keep on talkin'
Marchin' to the freedom land

Well don't you let nobody turn you 'round
Turn you 'round, turn you 'round
Well don't you let nobody turn you 'round
You got to keep on walkin', keep on talkin'
Marchin' to the freedom land

Well don't you let the policeman turn you 'round
Turn you 'round, turn you 'round
Well don't let the policeman turn you 'round
You got to keep on walkin', keep on talkin'
Marchin' to the freedom land

Well don't let the politician turn you 'round
Slow you down, slow you down
Well don't let the politician slow you down
You got to keep on walkin', keep on talkin'
Marchin' to the freedom land

Well don't you let the army general burn the world
Burn the world, burn the world
Well don't let the army general burn this world
You got to keep on walkin', keep on talkin'
Marchin' to the freedom land

Well don't you let nobody turn you 'round
Turn you 'round, turn you 'round
Well don't you let nobody turn you 'round
You got to keep on walkin', keep on talkin'
Marchin' to the freedom landback to top
Baby's House
(Steve Miller and Nicky Hopkins)

Inside her silver house, alone
She sings a song
Of water turned to sand
She waits, her time is her own

Inside her looking glass
Black is the color she sees
While waiting for the sun
She lives, so patiently

Young man travelling along
Passes by a window
Singing a song

Feel the wind blow
As my blood flows
Through the shadows
Of my soul, today

See the rainbows
As my love grows
My heart knows
What my mind won't say

The living is easy
I'm born to be free
The living is easy
There's no reason to explain

Sitting in her sitting room, patiently
She waits for a change, suddenly
Oh, the changes come
Hearing a song, her blood begins to flow
She no longer is alone

Lying in her sitting room, silently
He touches her hand, joyfully
And so love has begun
With joy in her heart
She receives his flowing soul
And love grows
And it grows
And it grows

Inside her purple house
Oh Lord, filled by her man
A child begins to grow
Oh Lord, who can understandback to top
Motherless Children
(Trad. Arr./Lyrics by Steve Miller)

Motherless children have a hard time
When their mother is gone
Motherless children have a hard time
When their mother is gone
Motherless children have a very hard time
All the weepin', all that cryin'
Motherless children have a hard time
When their mother is gone

People say a sister will do
When the mother is gone
People say a sister will do
When the mother is gone
People say a sister will do
She'll get married, turn her back on you
Motherless children have a hard time
When their mother is gone

Father do the best he can
When the mother is gone
Father do the best he can
When the mother is gone
Father do the best he can
But there's so many things he just don't understand
Motherless children have a hard time
When their mother is gone

I was lookin' for some place to plead my case
And I'm standing here all alone
I was framed, the times they have change
And I don't know where I'm goin'
Motherless children have a hard time
All that weepin', all that cryin'
Motherless children have a hard time
When their mother is goneback to top
The Last Wombat in Mecca
(Lonnie Turner)

[Spoken:]
The last wombat in Mecca. Take 1.

There's some things I can't find
Some are better left alone
There are few things I won't find
Some are better left alone
Like that bulldog in the bathroom
Like that wombat on the phone

As I float in my leer jet
Without a sling shot or a shield
As I hang in my leer jet
Without a shotgun or a shield
Hey, a flying saucer wobbled past
With a bulldog at the wheel
Yeah

Can you give us a description
Said the air force on the phone
Can you certify you've seen this
Said the air force on the phone
No, but here's his passport
And his teeth mark's on the phone

If I take a long vacation
And nail my bulldog to a wall
If I leave this smoggy nation
And nail my bulldog to a wall
If my bulldog keeps his mouth shut
Will you remember me at allback to top
Feel So Glad
(Steve Miller)

There are so many places
You have roamed
So many people
You have known
I know many of them you loved
Some are here, some are gone
None of them could love you
Cause I'm the only one

You've been away
Ohh, so long
And I need you
So, come on

Don't you be sad
Cause it won't be long
I know it's been bad
But you'll soon, soon be home

If I couldn't just be with you
Everything would be fine
If I couldn't just talk to you
It would ease your troubled mind

I'm your love
You're my woman
And you waited so patiently

Darling I'm waitin' here
Come on, come on, come on, come on home
There's so many things you got to hear
Some don't, don't stay away long
Don't stay away long

Well, listen little girl
You know I need you so
I'm savin' all of my love
And that's something you should know
The feeling's gettin' stronger
You know I can't get away
I've got to be with you baby
Each and every day
So hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry homeback to top
Your Saving Grace
(Tim Davis)

Winter's people watching
As I sail from season's four
To join some crazy ladies
In a game upon the shore
None of them with broken wings
But still refuse to fly
So with sweetness on my lips
I smile a last goodbye

And now I spend my life
On the velvet side of hell
Aimlessly here searching
For what I cannot tell
The quietness is terrible
It's more than I can stand
But thousands now stand cheering
As my blood flows in the sand

[Spoken:]
You're not the child
You thought you were
You wake up in the night
And know you're blind
And yet they keep on pushing
Trying the insides of your mind
Forever, forever arresting to control
Until the emptiness of heaven welcomes your weary soul

Rise up with the new dawn's early morning
Feel the sunshine warm upon your face
Tomorrow's come a long, long way to help you
Yes, it's your saving grace

Every day, every way
Tomorrow, it's your saving grace
Well, now got no time to worry
Cause I've got no time to hurry
Baby, it's your saving grace
Now don't you lay those blames on me
Don't you play those games on me
Cause baby it's your saving grace
You got to need a little lovin'
Now baby it's your saving grace
Hey, I feel alright
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Your saving grace
Ah, hey, hey, hey
Your saving grace
La la la la la la la la....
Oh baby, it's your saving graceback to top
