I Take What I Want (Porter / Hodges / Hayes)
Oh, I take what I want
Oh, I'm a bad go-getter, yeah
Yes, I am
I'm never a loser
And I'm never a quitter, yeah
Oh, no
'Cos I take what I want
Yeah, baby, I want you
Nobody but you, child

I've been a-watching you walk by
But I never said a word
Not one word
But now I'm there to get you
And I'm gonna make you my girl
My loving girl now
'Cos I take what I want
Yeah, baby, I want you
Nobody but you, child

Gonna pick you up now
Carry you away, yes, I am
So you better pack up now, baby
Pack it up today
Here I come
Just a big, bad man
When you see me walk away, baby
You'll be holding my hand

Nobody but you child (listen to me)
Nobody but you, you, you
Nobody but you, child
Oh, listen to me
Got nobody but you now

 

Hard, Hard Year (Ransford)
Bad times, something's wrong
Money's gone, I'm on my own
Can't stay, there's nothing here
Been a hard, hard year

First month, snows came
Put me in bed, couldn't work the same
Job's gone, bills are here
Been a hard, hard year

I look on the bad side of life
I lose heart then I want to die
So I've got to get back on my feet
And prove to myself I'm a man

Break

I hope that the bad times are gone
It's been work but I think that I've won
Now I'm happy
And I'll never be that way again
No, I'll never be that way again

Snow's gone, spring's here
Won't happen twice, I've seen my way clear
Everyone's paid, got no one to fear
Been a hard, hard year

Been a hard, hard year

 

That's How Strong My Love Is (Jamison)
If I were the sun, way up there
I'd roll around almost anywhere
Oh, I'd be the moon when the sun goes down
Just to let you know, I'm still around

That's how strong love is, oh
That's how strong my love is, baby, baby
That's how strong love is, yeah
That's how strong my love is

I'd be the weeping willow, drownin' my tears
You could go swimming whenever you're near
Oh, I'd be the rainbow when tears are gone
Wrap you in my colours, keep you warm

That's how strong love is, oh
That's how strong my love is, baby, baby
That's how strong love is, yeah
That's how strong my love is

I'd be the ocean so deep and so wide
I'd shed your tears whenever you'd cry
I'd be the breeze when the storms are gone
Dry your eyes and keep you warm

That's how strong love is, yeah
That's how strong my love is, baby, baby
That's how strong love is, listen to me know
That's how strong my love is

I'd be the ocean so deep and so wide
I'd shed your tears whenever you'd cry
I'd be the breeze when the storms are gone
Dry your eyes and keep you warm

That's how strong love is, yeah
That's how strong my love is, listen to me know
That's how strong love is, whoa
That's how strong my love is, listen to me

 That's how strong love is, yeah
That's how strong my love is, baby, baby
That's how strong love is, whoa
That's how strong my love is

 

Sweet Little Sixteen (Berry)
They're really rockin' in Boston
Pittsburgh, PA
Deep in the heart of Texas
Way down in 'Frisco Bay
All over St Louie
Down in New Orleans
All the cats going dancing
Sweet Little Sixteen

Sweet little sixteen
Just gotta have
Tight dresses and lipstick
Framed autographs
By tomorrow morning
You'll have to change the trend
Being sweet sixteen
Back in class again

Yeah, they're really rockin' in Boston
Pittsburgh, PA
Deep in the heart of Texas
Way down in 'Frisco Bay
All over St Louie
Down in New Orleans
All the cats going dancing
Sweet Little Sixteen

Oriental Sadness (Ransford)
How soon tears begin to tumble
From her laughing eyes
She's been talking to somebody
Who told her lies
She'll never trust in anybody no more
Who told her lies
She'll never trust in anybody no more

How can I begin to reach her
Let her know the truth
What that someone has been saying
Is only lies
She'll never trust in anybody no more
It's only lies
She'll never trust in anybody no more

How could she think that I
Would take advantage of a girl like her
How could she think that I
Would sacrifice all I have felt for her
Would sacrifice all I have felt for her

Break

Like a flower she is fading
Soon she'll wilt and die
If she doesn't get the sunlight
That I can give
She'll never trust in anybody no more
That I can give
She'll never trust in anybody no more

How could she think that I
Would take advantage of a girl like her
How could she think that I
Would sacrifice all I have felt for her
Would sacrifice all I have felt for her

Like a flower she is fading
Soon she'll wilt and die
If she doesn't get the sunlight
That I can give
She'll never trust in anybody no more
That I can give
She'll never trust in anybody no more

 

I Am a Rock (Simon / Garfunkel)
A winter's day
In a deep and dark December
I am alone
Gazing from my window to the street below
On a freshly fallen , silent shroud of snow
I am a rock, I am an island

I've built walls
A fortress steep and might
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
Well I've heard the word 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 armour
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

I am a rock, I am an island

I am a rock, I am an island

 

Take Your Time (Holly / Petty)
Take your time, I can wait
For all of the love I know will be mine
If you take your time

Take your time, though it's late
Heart strings will sing like a string of twine
If you take your time

Take your time and take mine too
I have time to spend
Take your time, go with me through
Times 'til all times end

Take your time, I can wait
For all of the love I know will be mine
If you take your time

Break

Take your time and take mine too
I have time to spend
Take your time, go with me through
Times 'til all times end

Take your time, I can wait
For all of the love I know will be mine
If you take your time

Time, time, time, ...

 

Don't You Even Care (What's Gonna Happen To Me) (Ballard Jr)
Don't you even care what's gonna happen to me, whoah
You're turning me loose and I never asked to be free, no
After all that we've been through
How can you let it end
I wanna be your lifetime man
But you wanna be my friend

Don't you even care what's gonna happen to me, whoah
Don't you even care what's gonna happen to me

How will I spend my days
What will I do each night
I could go out alone
Somehow it don't seem right

Break

Do, yeah

Do, yeah

How will I spend my days
What will I do each night
I could go out alone
Somehow it don't seem right

Don't you ever think about anybody but you, whoah
After you have gone, baby
What am I gonna do, oh
So come on, baby, change your mind
Please stay here with me
Come on baby, we'll be fine
Just you wait and see

Don't you even care what's gonna happen to me, whoah
Don't you even care what's gonna happen to me


Do, yeah

Do yeah

Do yeah

 

Fifi The Flea (Ransford)
Fifi the flea fell in love
With a clown from a flea circus fair
She gave him her heart
But he still couldn't see
That for such a long time she had cared
He put himself 'round all the other girl fleas
Unaware that he hurt her so badly
She cried in the arms of his manager friend
And declared that she loved the clown madly

One day Fifi went
And this drove the clown wild
The poor little flea started crying
Never you mind his manager said
I ought not to tell but she's dyin'
Dyin' for love of you little flea
You've broken her heart with your lyin'
She couldn't stand to see you throw
Her love away without tryin'

The day Fifi died the little clown vowed
He'd tend her grave every hour
He broke down and cried
When he saw her grave
And on it he placed a small flower
Poor little flea he wasted away
He'd lost his Fifi forever
So they opened her grave
Put him inside
Now at last they are together

 

Stewball (Yellin / Rinzler / Herald)]
Old Stewball was a racehorse
And I wished he were mine
He never drank water
He always drank wine

His bridle was silver
And his mane it was gold
But worth of his saddle
Has never been told

The fairground was crowded
And old Stewball was there
But the betting was heavy
On the bay and the mare

Oh, way up yonder
Ahead of them all
Came a prancing and a dancing
My noble Stewball

If I bet on the grey mare
And I bet on the bay
And if I'd bet on old Stewball
I'd be a free man today

Now, the hoot owl did holler
And the turtle dove moan
I'm a poor boy in trouble
I'm a long way from home

Old Stewball was a racehorse
And I wished he were mine
He never drank water
He always drank wine


I've Got A Way Of My Own (Ransford)
Everything 'round them is spinning and turning
But they can't understand
People around me just never stop learning
About the things that I've planned

I've got a way, way of my own

Just look around them they better start thinking
People will lend a hand
They better watch it or else they'll start sinking
With their heads in the sand

I've got a way, way of my own

Come back, when you've time for the world
You must think they'd don't need anyone, no no
Come back, when you've time for the world
They might find what they're looking for
They might find what they're looking for

Break

I can't believe that the reason they're giving
Will entice me to go
Why they deny me the right to start living
I'll just never know

I've got a way, way of my own

Come back, when you've time for the world
You must think they'd don't need anyone, no no
Come back, when you've time for the world
They might find what they're looking for
They might find what they're looking for
They might find what they're looking for
They might find what they're looking for

 

I Can't Let Go (Taylor / Gorgoni)
Oh I try and I try but I can't say goodbye

Feel so bad, baby Oh, it hurts me
When I think of how you love and desert me
I'm the broken-hearted toy you play with, baby

You got me going I need you, baby
I can't let go, and I want you, baby
I gotta have you, you know, I can't let go

Though I'm just one of your lovers
And I know there are so many others
You do something strange to me, baby, baby

You got me going I need you, baby
I can't let go, and I want you, baby
I gotta have you, you know, I can't let go

Oh I try and I try but I can't say goodbye
Know that it's wrong and I should be so strong
But the thought of you gone makes me want to hold on

Break

You got me going I need you, baby
I can't let go, and I want you, baby
I gotta have you, you know, I can't let go

You got me going I need you, baby
I can't let go, and I want you, baby
I gotta have you, you know, I can't let go

I can't let go
I can't let go
I can't let go
I can't let go
