    Lyrics
    HOME

    Baby, let me take you home tonight
    You don’t wanna be alone tonight
    You know I will treat you right
    If you let me take you home tonight

    Baby let me take you home tonight
    Let me love you let me hold you tight
    You know I will treat you right
    If you let me take you home tonight

    Home is where you belong
    Home where we’re never wrong
    Home, you know my love’s still strong
    Home, home, home, home, home

  • LITTLE EDDIE

    One day, Little Eddie bought a guitar
    He got a gig there in a public bar
    But he couldn’t really get very far
    And he fell down just like a shooting star.

    Martha Davies
    thought she knew how to sing
    She knew she she’d do well
    she consulted I Ching
    She dreamt about the fame
    and the big diamond ring
    And got surprised
    by what her life had to bring

    Lucky people do you know where they are?
    Lucky people, I can’t see them around
    Lucky people in their brand new cars
    Lucky people, do you see them around?

    Rev’rend Johnson has closed for the night
    Than he dropped in just to grab him a bite
    And in the bottle, finally, he saw the light
    He tried to pray but he couldn’t
    just quite.

  • I SHOULD LIKE TO LIVE UP A TREE

    You and me, we’re drinking tea
    Beneath the clouds floating silently
    And all I know
    and all I can see is that
    I should like to live up a tree
    No better place for me to be
    I should like to live up a tree
    But I won’t like you there with me

    You and me, we think we’re free
    While others run, oh so stubbornly
    But they all just refuse to see that
    I should like to live up a tree
    No better place for me to be
    I should like to live up a tree
    But I won’t like you there with me

    Riding the branches so fearlessly
    Watching the leaves rusting endlessly
    Scrapbook of mem’ries there on my knees
    I should like to live up a tree

  • SHIRLEY’S WILD ACCORDION

    I saw her standing on the corner of a street
    In the hot summer sun
    with no one there to meet
    She nodded, smiled
    and played me a song
    Of love, hate and passion
    I listened to her
    then took her along

    And even today when I listen
    To the wind of winter
    all alone
    I think I hear
    I think I still hear
    Still I think I hear
    Shirley’s wild accordion

    Well, she stayed with me
    only for a night or two
    Then left with no goodbye
    I swear this is true
    I ran around
    and I tried to bring her back
    But accordion music always
    took me on the wrong track

  • COLLIDING CIRCLES

    I have seen you standing there
    Golden light danced in your hair
    Beneath the sun
    Then your eyes uncaptured mine
    Girl out of space and out of time
    That’s all you’ve done

    Colliding circles, colliding circles
    Colliding circles all around me
    all night long
    Colliding circles, colliding circles
    Colliding circles like the stars
    that shine so strong

    Our hearts are moving in colliding circles
    Our lips are touching in an endless kiss
    Our love is burning in colliding circles
    There’ll never be another love like this

  • WHAT’S THE NEW MARY JANE

    What’s the new Mary Jane?
    Doesn’t she feel the shame?
    Did she not forget my name?
    What’s the new Mary Jane?

    Many years went rolling by
    I forgot to laugh and cry
    Still I really don’t know why
    Many years went rolling by

    What’s the new Mary Jane?
    Did she ever feel the pain?
    Or the tears that fell like rain?
    What’s the new Mary Jane?

  • HEATHER

    Heather
    I really should have known better
    Right from the moment I met her
    It’s easy now for you to say

    Heather, Now what I have is
    just her letter
    I’ve made a mistake when I let her
    Take my heart away

    I was looking for a girl
    who’d fit into my world
    Now I don’t know what to do
    Do you, do you?

    Heather
    Now it really doesn‘t matter
    Please, tell me how to forget her
    Night and day, night and day

    I’m still looking for a girl
    who’d fit into my world
    Now I don’t know what to do
    Do you, do you?

    Heather, m-m, Heather, ooh

  • WHEN I COME TO TOWN

    I left some years ago
    with an itch in my feet
    But I’m coming back to my
    old Mersey street
    They tried to break my wings
    tried to push me and shove
    But they couldn’t really do it, girl
    because of your love
    Now, no one’s gonna touch me
    Yeah, they won’t bring me down
    There’s gonna be some action
    When I come to town

    We’re gonna have a party
    we’re gonna have a ball
    Call up all my neighbors, yeah,
    invite them all
    We’ll play some good old lovesongs,
    we will sing, dance and cheer
    It’s time to tell the whole town
    that I’m finally here

  • BOUND BY LOVE

    She’s lost, she’s found
    She’s so profound
    She gives, she takes
    She laughs, she brakes
    She runs, she hides
    She takes no sides
    She got no style
    But I like her smile

    Oh, mister,
    Have you seen my baby
    She’s bound by love
    And I don’t mean maybe
    She’s bound by love
    Bound by love, oh yeah
    Have you seen my baby

    She’s strong, she’s weak
    She’s smooth, she’s slick
    The way she walks
    The way she talks

  • INDIAN ROPE TRICK

    When was the first time
    you tried to climb
    Above the clouds
    where the sun always shines
    Did you feel happy
    when the Lord made you quick
    Teaching you how to do
    the Indian rope trick

    Souring up high
    with strange word in your head
    Making you sorry
    and wish you were dead
    Did you remember
    last month or last week
    To practise the Lord’s Indian rope trick.

    Climbing alone
    to the height of the heights
    You might feel dizzy or feel a bit sick
    But you must remember
    there is a safe way down
    If you don’t mess up doing
    the Indian rope trick.

  • FOUR NIGHTS IN MOSCOW

    You know, my baby well she likes it a lot
    To run away, leave me angry and hot
    There’s always other places she’s gotta see
    Whole lotta scenes she visits ’lone without me

    But I’m still trying, I won’t give up the fight
    Someday I’ll find her well you know that I might
    I got a ticket , I just bought it today
    And when I catch her she will ask me to stay

    Four nights in Moscow, or three days in Rome
    Weekend in Baghdad, well she wasn’t alone
    Four nights in Moscow, I was losing my mind
    Because she told me , ’bout her tickets to ride

    I’m tired of planes, trains are making me sick
    I think I know where she’ll be going next week
    I’ll call my agent tell him book me the flight
    I’ll found my honey I’ll be holding her tight.

  • THINKING OF LINKING

    Waiting for the bus
    Standing in the queue
    Cold drizzle running down your neck.
    You wonder what’s the fuss, what you’re gonna do
    And when she will be coming back.

    You think you’ve cross the line
    And you’re feeling kind of blue
    While the rain is painting whole world gray
    You are waiting for the sign
    You are waiting for the clue
    You are looking for the things to say.

    Just when you think there’s nothing left to do
    Nowhere left to go
    Try thinking of linking with somebody new
    Somebody who will know

    Now you’re feeling like a clown
    And you think it’s all in vain
    And that no one ever can be right
    Just because she let you down
    And you’re crying now in pain
    Remember, don’t give up the fight.

    ’Cause when you think there’s nothing left to do
    Nowhere left to go
    Try thinking of linking with somebody new
    Somebody who will know

  • WATCHING RAINBOWS

    There are places where I’d like to be, after all is said and done
    There are people that I’d like to see, after all my songs are sung
    I’m waiting for the time to come, and I know I wont be sorry
    Watching rainbows all day long… watching rainbows

    Girl you’ll always be my love, no one else could be like you
    And when the sun comes up my love (oh, my love)
    I’ll tell you what we’re gonna do
    We’ll be waiting for the time to come
    And we’ll know we wont be sorry
    Watching rainbows all day long… watching rainbows

  • RUBBER SOUL

    Remember the times
    When you were so small
    Your feelings kept bouncing like
    The ball on the wall
    You didn’t know nothing
    Now you know it all
    But all you are left with is this
    Rubber soul.

    You dig Mother Mary
    You dig Father Paul
    Sometimes you think that you
    Can dig rock & roll
    But listen, my friend
    Don’t whine, cry and call
    You’ll never own
    nothing but this
    Rubber soul.

    Standing on the highest top
    You have to chose the flight or fall
    If you ever wanna stop
    The hands that squeeze your
    Rubber soul.
