Another Night (Sylvester / Clarke / Hicks)
Out on the town diggin' around feeling bluesy
It's getting late I can't afford to be choosy
Should be home and dry by now
Tried every trick in the book, but

Another night, Saturday night and I'm losing
Another night, Saturday night and I'm losing

The DJ plays a song from the past I remember
I hold her tight in my arms she surrenders
It's the same old record playing
But it's a different girl that's swaying

Another night, Saturday night and I'm losing
Another night, Saturday night and I'm losing

Break

As we move around the room
Whispering things with my eyes closed
It feels that you're here
Then the music stops, I open my eyes
My fantasy ends, we're not even friends

I'm leaving to catch my ride, pay my fare on my way home
The same thing every week on my own
Next time around you might be there
My luck might change but until then

Another night, Saturday night and I'm losing
Another night, Saturday night and I'm losing
Another night, Saturday night and I'm losing
Another night, Saturday night and I'm losing

 

4th of July Asbury Park (Sandy) (Springsteen)
Sandy the aurora is risin' behind us
Those pier lights our carnival life forever
Oh love me tonight for I may never see you again
Hey Sandy girl, my, my, my, my baby

Sandy the fireworks are hailin' over Little Eden tonight
Forcin' a light into all those stony faces left stranded on this warm July
And the boys from the casino dance with their shirts open like Latin lovers on the shore
Chasin' all those silly New York virgins by the score

Sandy the aurora is risin' behind us
Those pier lights our carnival life forever
Oh love me tonight, I promise I'll love you forever
Oh I mean it Sandy girl, Oh my baby
Hey Sandy girl, my, my, my, my baby

Sandy the waitress I was seein' lost her desire for me
I spoke with her last night she said she won't set herself on fire for me anymore
Did you hear the cops finally busted Madame Marie for tellin' fortunes better than they do
For me this boardwalk life's through, you ought to quit this scene too

Sandy the aurora is risin' behind us
Those pier lights our carnival life forever
Oh love me tonight for I may never see you again
Hey Sandy girl, my, my, my, my baby

Hey Sandy girl, Oh my baby

Hey Sandy girl, my, my, my, my, my, my baby

Hey Sandy girl, My baby

Hey Sandy girl, my, my, my, my baby

 

Lonely Hobo Lullaby (Sylvester / Clarke)
Heading out on my way to nowhere
Just a traveling man
Hitching rides along the highway
From whoever I can

Gotta stop someplace somewhere
And put some leather on my shoes
They're the only pair that get me there
Any horizon that I choose

I know when the cold wind blows
My coat will keep me warm
I've got no woman's love
To call my own

I saw you lying there
A cast-off from another man
So I picked you up, took you home
And home is on my back

Lonely hobo lullaby is my song
Lonely hobo lullaby gets me along
My shoes, my coat, my jeans
And anything else I own
We're a family without a tree
No roots to hold us down

Break

Heading out on my way to nowhere
Just a traveling man
Hitching rides along the highway
From whoever I can

Gotta stop someplace somewhere
And put some leather on my shoes
They're the only pair that get me there
Any horizon that I choose

 

Second Hand Hangups (Sylvester / Clarke / Hicks)
It's been such a long time
Since I had words with you
Tell me what you've been doing
Tell me baby what's new

I've been hanging 'round with our old friends
Getting a line on what's happening with your game
They all know something about you
But their stories aren't all the same

Look out girl you're gonna get caught ooh
Getting caught means I'm gonna lose you
Get on the right track
Then I'll have you back

Break

Second hand hangups don't get me down
This ain't my first time around
I'm not disillusioned
I'm a member of the union
Membership paid, done my dues

Second hand hangups don't get me down
This ain't my first time around
I'm not disillusioned
I'm a member of the union
Membership paid, done my dues

And it's been such a long time
Since I had words with you
Tell me what you've been doing
Tell me baby what's new

Tell me baby what's new

 

Time Machine Jive (Sylvester / Clarke / Hicks)
Time machine jive, Time machine jive
Time machine jive, Time machine jive

You better look out
Look out your window tonight
There'll be a hot cat on your tin roof
Layin' it loose

There'll be a full band
To give me a hand
The moon will be a spotlight
For this one-night stand

You better look out
Look out your window tonight

Time machine jive, Time machine jive
Time machine jive, Time machine jive

You gotta reach out
And try to grab my glitter suit
Snatch a hand full of stars
Take a trip in my seven league boots

Come silver surfin'
You'll know you had a ride
My star-treck music's gonna take me high
You better look out
Look out your window tonight

Time machine jive, Time machine jive

Dimensional, intentional, sensual
Immeasurable, pleasurable, hitch a ride

Time machine jive, Time machine jive
Time machine jive, Time machine jive

Break

Time machine jive, Time machine jive
Time machine jive, Time machine jive

Don't leave it too late
Or you won't get a ticket on my cruise
Don't be the last one
Or else you'll have to light the fuse

You can't afford not
To be on board
Come on baby
Hear the music that's calling
And look out, look out your window tonight (Time machine jive, Time machine jive)

You better look out, look out your window tonight(Time machine jive, Time machine jive)

Look out, look out your window tonight(Time machine jive, Time machine jive)

You better look out, look out your window tonight (Time machine jive, Time machine jive)

Look out, look out your window tonight(Time machine jive, Time machine jive)

 

I'm Down (Clarke / Sylvester / Hicks)
Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha
Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha

Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha
Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha

Shook my head out of dreams
Reality's calling
The early bird's been up all morning
But I've got no notion of moving from where I am

Though my legs won't move
I feel disabled
I'm on a shelf, an article labelled
Waiting for someone to fetch me from lost and found

I'm down, no one to hear me calling
I'm down, no one to see me falling
I'm down

Had my ways
With days of sunshine
Life came easy, it all fell in line
But then again I didn't realise

When you're used to one thing
It's hard to accept another
Like the woman who brought you up
Well she ain't your mother
How do you cope
With a thing like that

I'm down, no one to hear me calling
I'm down, no one to see me falling
I'm down

I always thought it was my dad who went to war
Thought it was my sister who fell off the wall
My pseudo-brother Billy emigrated long ago
Someone went through pain to have me
Someone I should know

I'm down
Ha, Ha, Ha

I'm down
Ha, Ha, Ha

To the folks who brought me up
I'm not ungrateful
Kept the secret from me
They thought it was shameful
It hurt me so
To be the last one to know

Maybe someone's out there
Looking for me
Left on their own
Couldn't afford to clothe me
And I, I don't even know my real name

I'm down, no one to hear me calling
I'm down, no one to see me falling
I'm down

I'm down

I'm down

I'm down

 

Look Out Johnny (There's A Monkey On Your Back) (Sylvester / Clarke / Hicks)
Johnny was a pusher on the east side
Pushing anything to be pushed
Laid something on a guy who didn't get high
Didn't know the guy was a hood

Wheeling-dealing Johnny got frightened
Thought the best place was out of town
Packed up his bags and threw them in the back
Of his Chevy, put his foot flat down

Look out Johnny, there's a monkey on your back
You better beware there Johnny
'Cause the monkey's packin' a gat
Drivin' over red lights, speeding down the freeway
Johnny, Johnny, get away

You better beware there Johnny, there's a monkey on your back

Johnny thought he'd do something clever
Turning south on the old Coast Road
Pushing 94 swerving, leaning on the door
Trying to shake off his heavy load

Crossed the state line feeling safer
Drinking in the corner of a bar
In walked a guy looked the barman in the eye
Said "Hey is Johnny in here"

Look out Johnny, there's a monkey on your back
You better beware there Johnny
'Cause the monkey's packin' a gat
Drivin' over red lights, speeding down the freeway
Johnny, Johnny, get away

You better beware there Johnny, there's a monkey on your back

Break

You better beware there Johnny, there's a monkey on your back
Look out Johnny 'cos the monkey's packin' a gat

Drivin' over red lights speeding down the freeway
Johnny Johnny get away

You better beware there Johnny, there's a monkey on your back
Look out Johnny there's a monkey on your back

You better beware there Johnny, there's a monkey on your back
Look out Johnny there's a monkey on your back

 

Give Me Time (Sylvester / Clarke)
Back off baby
Don't lean too hard
I'll come 'round when I'm ready
I ain't finished my playing 'round
Don't want to go steady

You gotta give me time
Give me time, give me time
You gotta give me time
Give me time, give me time

The feeling in me ain't the same as yours
I'm still first-class flying
You've gotta wait till I reach the ground
No need to be lying

Give me time
Give me time, give me time

Give me time
Give me time, give me time

To think it over

Don't try so hard
Don't spoil your chance
Don't try so hard
Don't spoil your chance

Break

Back off baby
Don't lean too hard
I'll come 'round when I'm ready
I ain't finished my playing 'round
Don't want to go steady

You gotta give me time
Give me time, give me time
You gotta give me time
Give me time, give me time

To think it over

Give me time
Give me time, give me time
You gotta give time
Give me time, give me time

Give me time
Give me time, give me time
You gotta give time
Give me time, give me time

 

You Gave Me Life (With That Look In Your Eyes) (Sylvester / Clarke)
Picked up the phone, called
There's no one at home
You said you'd be there for my call
Did I do right by staying home tonight
All I know is I'm so alone

You made a date said
You wouldn't be late
That's when my hopes started to rise
I didn't really know ya
You said "I wanna show ya"
And I believed that look in your eyes

Well you gotta give me life
You gave me life
You gotta give me life
With that look in your eyes

Well you gotta give me life
You gave me life
You gotta give me life
With that look in your eyes

Break

Went out on the street
Just a chance we might meet
The chance well it came to order
I saw you standing there baby, without a care
Giving the same line to a guy on the corner

Don't know your name
Don't know your game
It's such a shame Oh yeah

Don't know your name
Don't know your game
It's such a shame Oh yeah

Well you gotta give me life
You gave me life
You gotta give me life
With that look in your eyes

Well you gotta give me life
You gave me life
You gotta give me life
With that look in your eyes

Well you gotta give me life
You gave me life
You gotta give me life
With that look in your eyes

 

Lucy (Sylvester / Clarke / Hicks)
Got a call from the doctor
He said hold on my friend
You've gotta know what I'm knowing
Please come right away

He said Lucy's been seeing me
And things just ain't right
You'll have to hold things together
'Cos Lucy ain't much time

Now should I tell her or keep it inside
Making her happy by feeding her lines
How am I gonna tell the children
That Mama's goin' away
I couldn't love another woman
Oh Lucy please stay

If I'm gonna lose you
After all this time
I'm gonna make life more beautiful
I'm gonna make you make you feel fine

If we make tomorrow
We'll make it better every way
We'll keep on building
'Cos we're living day to day

Now should I tell her or keep it inside
Making her happy by feeding her lines
How am I gonna tell the children
That Mama's goin' away
I couldn't love another woman
Oh Lucy please stay

I couldn't love another woman
Lucy please stay

Baby, baby
Baby, Lucy please oh won't you stay

I need you, I need you
Please don't go, please don't go
Lucy please, please won't you stay

I want you to know that I love you
I love you
I'm gonna miss your sweet love
Lucy won't you stay

 

Son Of A Rotten Gambler (Taylor)
And his love will be his vision
He'll take you where you stand
Will you stand your life by his
And help the boy become a man

He'd be the son of his father
His father the teacher
Teaching love and honesty
Being his own manhandler
For the son of the son of a run of the mill
Run Rotten gambler

Will the devil be gettin' to you
As you look back over what you've done
What you've done
Was it for reason or for rhyme
Was it just for fun

He'd be the son of his father
His father the teacher
Teaching love and honesty
Being his own manhandler
For the son of the son of a run of the mill
run Rotten gambler

Back on the road now
You gonna lose your head
There ain't no kingdom for the gamblin' man
You know the road now
And you've made your stand
When his eyes shine upon you
Shine upon you

He'd be the son of his father
His father the teacher
Teaching love and honesty
Being his own manhandler
For the son of the son of a run of the mill
Run Rotten gambler

He'd be the son of his father
His father the teacher
Teaching love and honesty
Being his own manhandler
For the son of the son of a run of the mill
Run Rotten gambler

He'd be the son of his father
His father the teacher
Teaching love and honesty
Being his own manhandler
For the son of the son of a run of the mill
Run Rotten gambler

 

Layin' To The Music (Clarke / Sylvester)
Bright light city's high
Maybe we're gonna fly
Get on the scene
King and Queen
Layin' To the music if you know what I mean

Downtown get around
Searchin' for a mean sound
Itchy feet
Wanna dance to the beat
Layin' To the music if you know what I mean

Comin' on strong
Won't be long
Reachin' out to where I belong
I'm in my stride
Good music to ride by
Horse riders in the sky

Break

Comin' on strong
Won't be long
Reachin' out to where I belong
I'm in my stride
Good music to ride by
Horse riders in the sky

Drinkin' wine from a slipper shoe
Baby can we boogaloo
Move to the right
Slip in tight
Layin' to the music all night
Layin' to the musics all right
Layin' to the music all night

 

Hello Lady Goodbye (Hicks / Clarke / Sylvester)
I woke up in the morning
Heard a mockingbird sing
Was he laughing at me
I went to the basin washed the sleep out my eyes
So I could see

A note on the bed close to where my lover should be
She slipped away in the night
The writing was shaky and with tears on the sheets
I'm sorry we had a fight

So farewell sweet lover farewell
I'm sorry we never said goodbye
So farewell sweet lover farewell
Left with a tear in your eye

Must've been brewing for a very long time
In the wardrobe the hangers are bare
Don't know how you did it, it must've been planned
You even took your favourite chair

So goodbye my lady goodbye
You won't find no tear in my eye
So goodbye my lady goodbye
Going out tonight to get high

Found myself at Charlies scene
Drinking all fashions
Sticky painted movie queen
Winked her eye at me
That's how it happened
Diamond shoes, satin dress
Flashin' flashin' flashin' flashin'

Break

Woke up in the morning heard my mockingbird sing
And it was singin' for me
The lady I met last night's here by my side
She's good company

Well hello sweet lady hello
Good morning with a smile
Well hello sweet lady hello

This lady's gonna make it alright
This lady's gonna make it alright
This lady's gonna make it alright

Lady lady
This lady's gonna make it alright x4
Lady lady
This lady's gonna make it alright
Lady lady
This lady's gonna make it alright
Lady lady
This lady's gonna make it alright

Another night, Saturday night and I'm losing
