You Need Love
Written by dennis deyoung
Lead vocals by james young

Bah bah bah bah bya ba ba dada
Bah bah bah bah bya ba ba dada
Bah bah bah bah bya ba ba dada
Bah bah bah bah bya ba ba dada da

Welcome my friends
To a place that may seem
Most disturbing
Quite unnerving

Lend me your dreams
And we'll add what we need
To be free
Terminally

We'll fly to a spot
Where I know there is not
Any sorrow
No tomorrow

People just laugh
Cause they know how it feels
To have loved
And be loved

Don't you worry
Ain't no need to hurry
All you really need
Is love

Bah bah bah bah bah

Now you may say
Tell me more of this place
So inviting
And exciting

Here and above
Children love without doubt
And can be
They can be

Listen my friends
Carefully to direction
To get there
And you know where

Love is the place
Skewed to matter and space
For us all
For us all

Don't you worry
Ain't no need to hurry
All you really need
Is love, love, loveback to top
Lady
Lady, when you're with me I'm smiling
Give me all your love
Your hands build me up when I'm sinking
Just touch me and my troubles all fade
Lady, from the moment I saw you
Standing all alone
You gave all the love that I needed
So shy, like a child who has grown

You're my lady of the morning
Love shines in your eyes
Sparkling, clear, and lovely
You're my lady

Lady, turns me on when I'm lonely
Show me all your charm
Evenings when she lays down beside me
Just take me gently into your arms

Your my lady of the morning
Love shines in your eyes
Sparkling, clear, and lovely
You're my lady

Lady of the morning
Love shines in your eyes
Sparkling, clear, and lovely
You're my ... ladyback to top
A Day
Written by john curulewski
Lead vocals by john curulewski

Woke up in rainy autumn
Morning mist beginning to wane
And the birds of the winged trees
Calling my name

Care less the clouds above me
The wind is gently lifting my hair
Where the rivers of the wind fall light rain
Now stand bare

Listen to the flowing streams
Golden in the shelter of my dreams
Playing a song on the meadow that echoes with love

Walk alone through the garden
The leaves are wet with morning's tear
And the whispering of someone
Is drawing me near

Content to rest awhile
Pondering the motion of time
Over unforgotten memories
Dipped in wine

Listen to the flowing streams
Golden in the shelter of my dreams
Playing a song on the meadow that echoes with love

[extended instrumental solos]

The God of dusk is falling around me
The night air now restless and dank
Yet the fields are specked with flowers
Few and rank

Moon reflecting off the water
Rippling an image to me
Of the way that it is
And the way that it's going to be

Listen to the flowing streams
Golden in the shelter of my dreams
Playing a song on the meadow that echoes with loveback to top
You Better Ask
Written by john curulewski
Lead vocals by john curulewski

I met a little girl sittin' in the front
Pardon me miss for seeming quite so blunt
But your beauty and your presence
Just took me by surprise

She said there's a meaning in my sexy stare
But that's my old man that's sittin' over there
And that's not the look of love that he's got for you in his eyes

You know what you've gotta do
There's no one else to blame but you
Nobody's gonna tell you so next time you just had better ask

You know what you've gotta do
There's no one else to blame but you
Nobody's gonna tell you so next time you just had better ask

I took her home and we was doing nip and tuck
How was I to know that I was out of luck
And before I knew it, the devil took my soul

In two weeks time it seemed to be the steady con
She told me you're about to be a papa, john
And I just looked around and tried to crawl into the nearest hole

You know what you've gotta do
There's no one else to blame but you
Nobody's gonna tell you so next time you just had better ask

You know what you've gotta do
There's no one else to blame but you
Nobody's gonna tell you so next time you just had better ask

[instrumental solos]

Well, in two more weeks I started feelin' sore
I found myself waiting at my doctor's door
He said, son I'm sorry but I've got some slightly less than tragic news

Yeah, it seems you've been sociable with certain she's
Cause you've contracted what we call a social disease
And next time you better ask and use it, no don't refuse

You know what you've gotta do
There's no one else to blame but you
Nobody's gonna tell you so next time you just had better ask

You know what you've gotta do
There's no one else to blame but you
Nobody's gonna tell you so next time you just had better ask

You know what you've gotta do
There's no one else to blame but you
Nobody's gonna tell you so next time you just had better askback to top
Father O.S.A.
(Dennis DeYoung)

father
you're a sad old man
your tawdry vest is gray

memories
of a former man
are all your words convey

father
oh can't you see
the tarnished robe you wear

a crown
for fools
the people laugh
you never seem to hear

father
you're life's a ship
that's never been to sea

the bottle
that surrounds your life
you'll sail eternally

[keyboard solo]

children
please understand
a man must stand alone

and face a world
he'll never know
and never call his own

ba ba bum bum
ba ba bum bum

Earl of Roseland
Written by dennis deyoung
Lead vocals by dennis deyoung

Oh oh oh oh oh

Penny pitching on the walk
Waiting for the bus to arrive
Me and davy playing sport
Watching for the cops to go by

Spider man and the human torch
They cover barney's newsstand
Morning crowds start to gather round
Fast finger steals what he can

Morning leaves for the afternoon
The boys show up on time
In the streets near the people's store
Below the electrical sign

Catch a glimpse of a passing car
Raced and ready to drag
Then the skirts start to tantalize
The boys how they boast and they brag

Oh the earl of roseland
Oh the earl of roseland

Where has he gone?
A memory at dawn
You're just a bit of the past

[guitar solo]

Oh oh oh oh
Oh the earl of roseland
Oh the earl of roseland

Me and davy gazing back
See ourselves as we were
How we laugh when we think of things
That we did yesteryear

I can see charlie on the porch
Johnny clicking his sticks
And two boys I don't even know
Rehearsing electric string tricks
Ya ya ya ya ya ya

Oh the earl of roseland
Oh the earl of roseland
Oh the earl of roseland
Oh the earl of roseland
Oh the earl of roseland
Oh the earl of roseland
Oh the earl of roseland
Oh the earl of roselandback to top
I'm Gonna Make You Feel It
Written by dennis deyoung
Lead vocals by james young

Every day I get the feeling
When you move on down the street
Wondering when I'll be your lover
And you'll make my dream complete

The way you walk is so inviting
That I quiver and I shake
The way you move it makes me wonder
How much more can I take

I'm gonna make you feel it
Basically that's what I say
I'm gonna make you feel it
Cause you want it just that way

Every time that we're together
My head starts to rock and roll
I get this strange electric feeling
That I simply can't control

I'm gonna make you feel it
Basically that's what I say
I'm gonna make you feel it
Cause you want it just that way

[guitar solo]

I'm gonna make you feel it
I'm gonna make you feel it
I'm gonna make you feel itback to top
