Sultans of swing




You get a shiver in the dark
It's been raining in the park but meantime
South of the river you stop and you hold everything
A band is blowing Dixie double four time
You feel all right when you hear that music ring

You step inside but you don't see too many faces
Coming in out of the rain to hear the jazz go down
Too much competition too many other places
But not too many horns can make that sound
Way on downsouth way on downsouth London town

You check out Guitar George he knows all the chords
Mind he's strictly rhythm he doesn't want to make it cry or sing
And an old guitar is all he can afford
When he gets up under the lights to play his thing

And Harry doesn't mind if he doesn't make the scene
He's got a daytime job he's doing alright
He can play honky tonk just like anything
Saving it up for Friday night
With the Sultans with the Sultans of Swing

And a crowd of young boys they're fooling around in the corner
Drunk and dressed in their best brown baggies
and their platform soles
They don't give a damn about any trumpet playing band
It ain't what they call rock and roll
And the Sultans, and the Sultans played Creole

And then the man he steps right up to the microphone
And says at last just as the time bell rings
'Thank you goodnight now it's time to go home'
and he makes it fast with one more thing
'We are the Sultans of Swing, we are the Sultans of Swing'

Always




This romeo is bleeding
But you can't see his blood
It's nothing but some feelings
That this old dog kicked up

It's been raining since you left me
Now I'm drowning in the flood
You see I've always been a fighter
But without you I give up

Now I can't sing a love song
Like the way it's meant to be
Well, I guess I'm not that good anymore
But baby, that's just me

And I will love you, baby. Always
And I'll be there forever and a day. Always
I'll be there till the stars don't shine
Till the heavens burst and
The words don't rhyme
And I know when I die, you'll be on my mind
And I'll love you, always

Now your pictures that you left behind
Are just memories of a different life
Some that made us laugh, some that made us cry
One that made you have to say goodbye
What I'd give to run my fingers through your hair
To touch your lips, to hold you near
When you say your prayers try to understand
I've made mistakes, I'm just a man

When he holds you close, when he pulls you near
When he says the words you've been needing to hear
I'll wish I was him 'cause those words are mine
To say to you till the end of time

Yeah, I will love you baby, always
And I'll be there forever and a day. Always

If you told me to cry for you
I could
If you told me to die for you
I would
Take a look at my face
There's no price I won't pay
To say these words to you

Well, there ain't no luck
In these loaded dice
But baby if you give me just one more try
We can pack up our old dreams
And our old lives
We'll find a place where the sun still shines

And I will love you, baby, always
And I'll be there forever and a day. Always
I'll be there till the stars don't shine
Till the heavens burst and
The words don't rhyme
And I know when I die, you'll be on my mind
And I'll love you, always

Lucky



Do you hear me,
I'm talking to you
Across the water across the deep blue ocean
Under the open sky, oh my, baby I'm trying
Boy I hear you in my dreams
I feel your whisper across the sea
I keep you with me in my heart
You make it easier when life gets hard

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Ooohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

They don't know how long it takes
Waiting for a love like this
Every time we say goodbye
I wish we had one more kiss
I'll wait for you I promise you, I will

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Lucky we're in love every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

And so I'm sailing through the sea
To an island where we'll meet
You'll hear the music fill the air
I'll put a flower in your hair
Though the breezes through trees
Move so pretty you're all I see
As the world keeps spinning round
You hold me right here right now

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
I'm lucky we're in love every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

Ooohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooooh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

Across The Universe



Words are flowing out like
endless rain into a paper cup
They slither while they pass
They slip away across the Universe
Pools of sorrow waves of joy
are drifting through my open mind
Possessing and caressing me

Jai guru deva Om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

Images of broken light which
dance before me like a million eyes
That call me on and on across the Universe
Thoughts meander like a
restless wind inside a letter box
they tumble blindly as they make their way
across the universe

Jai guru deva Om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

Sounds of laughter shades of life
are ringing through my open ears
exciting and inviting me
Limitless undying love which
shines around me like a million suns
It calls me on and on across the Universe

Jai guru deva Om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

Jai guru deva
Jai guru deva

Somewhere over the rainbow

Ok this one's for Gabby

uuuh uuuh uuh
uh uh uh uuh
uh uh uuuh
uuuh uuuh uuuh uh uh
uh uh uuuh
uh uh uuuh

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Once in a lullaby ay ay
Somewhere over the rainbow
Blue birds fly
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Dreams really do come true uh uuuh
Someday I'll wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney tops thats where you'll find me oh
Somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
And the dream that you dare to, oh why, oh why can't I?

Well I see trees of green and
Red roses too,
I'll watch them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

Well I see skies of blue and I see clouds of white
And the brightness of day
I like the dark and I think to myself
What a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people passing by
I see friends shaking hands
Saying, "How do you do?"
They're really saying, I... I love you
I hear babies cry and I watch them grow,
They'll learn much more
Than we'll know
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world world

Someday I'll wish upon a star,
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney top that's where you'll find me
Oh, Somewhere over the rainbow way up high
And the dream that you dare to, why, oh why can't I?

uuuh uuuh uuh
uh uh uh uuh
uuuh uuuh

Hips don't lie



Ladies up in here tonight
No fighting
We got the refugees up in here
No fighting, no fighting

Shakira, Shakira

I never really knew that she could dance like this
She makes a man wants to speak Spanish
Como se llama, bonita, mi casa, su casa
(Shakira, Shakira)

Oh baby when you talk like that
You make a woman go mad
So be wise and keep on
Reading the signs of my body

And I'm on tonight
You know my hips don't lie
And I'm starting to feel it's right
All the attraction, the tension
Don't you see baby, this is perfection

Hey Girl, I can see your body moving
And it's driving me crazy
And I didn't have the slightest idea
Until I saw you dancing

And when you walk up on the dance floor
Nobody cannot ignore the way you move your body, girl
And everything so unexpected - the way you right and left it
So you can keep on taking it

I never really knew that she could dance like this
She makes a man want to speak Spanish
Como se llama, bonita, mi casa, su casa
(Shakira, Shakira)

Oh baby when you talk like that
You make a woman go mad
So be wise and keep on
Reading the signs of my body

And I'm on tonight
You know my hips don't lie
And I am starting to feel you boy
Come on lets go, real slow
Don't you see baby asi es perfecto

Oh I know I am on tonight my hips don't lie
And I am starting to feel it's right
All the attraction, the tension
Don't you see baby, this is perfection
(Shakira, Shakira)

Oh boy, I can see your body moving
Half animal, half man
I don't, don't really know what I'm doing
But you seem to have a plan
My will and self restraint
Have come to fail now, fail now
See, I am doing what I can, but I can't so you know
That's a bit too hard to explain

Baila en la calle de noche
Baila en la calle de día

Baila en la calle de noche
Baila en la calle de día

I never really knew that she could dance like this
She makes a man want to speak Spanish
Como se llama, bonita, mi casa, su casa
(Shakira, Shakira)

Oh baby when you talk like that
You know you got me hypnotized
So be wise and keep on
Reading the signs of my body

Señorita, feel the conga, let me see you move
like you come from Colombia

Mira en Barranquilla se baila así. ¡Sí!
Mira en Barranquilla se baila así

Yeah
She's so sexy every man's fantasy a refugee like me
back with the Fugees from a 3rd world country
I go back like when 'pac carried crates for Humpty Humpty
I need a whole club dizzy
Why the CIA wanna watch us?
Colombians and Haitians
I ain't guilty, it's a musical transaction
No more do we snatch ropes
Refugees run the seas 'cause we own our own boats

I'm on tonight, my hips don't lie
And I'm starting to feel you boy
Come on let's go, real slow
Baby, like this is perfecto

Oh, you know I am on tonight and my hips don't lie
And I am starting to feel it's right
The attraction, the tension
Baby, like this is perfection

No fighting
No fighting

Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps



You won't admit you love me.
And so how am I ever to know?
You only tell me:
'perhaps, perhaps, perhaps'.

A million times I've asked you,
and then I ask you over again,
you only answer:
'perhaps, perhaps, perhaps'.

If you can't make your mind up,
we'll never get started.
And I don't want to wind up
being parted, broken-hearted.
So if you really love me,
say yes.
But if you don't, dear, confess.
And please don't tell me
perhaps, perhaps, perhaps.

Song 2




woohoo!! woohoo!!
woohoo!! woohoo!!

I got my head checked
by a jumbo jet
It wasn't easy but nothing is
No

Woohoo!!
When I feel heavy metal
Woohoo!!
and I'm pins and I'm needles
Woohoo!!
Well I lie and I'm easy

All of the time I am never sure
why I need you
Pleased to meet you

I got my head done
when I was young
It's not my problem
It's not my problem

Woohoo!!
When I feel heavy metal
Woohoo!!
and I'm pins and I'm needles
Woohoo!!
Well, I lie and I'm easy

All of the time and I'm never sure
why I need you
Pleased to meet you

Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah, oh yeah.

Heal The World



There's a place in your heart
and I know that it is love
And this place could be much
brighter than tomorrow
And if you really try
you'll find there's no need to cry
In this place you'll feel
there's no hurt or sorrow

There are ways to get there
If you care enough for the living
Make A Little Space
Make A Better Place...

Heal the World
Make it a better place
For you and for me
and the entire human race
There are people dying
if you care enough
for the living
Make a better place
for you and for me

If you want to know why
there's a love that cannot lie
Love is strong
it only cares for joyful giving
If we try we shall see
in this bliss we cannot feel
fear or dread
We stop existing and start living

Then it feels that always
love's enough for us growing
So make a better World
Make a better World...

Heal the World
Make it a better place
For you and for me
and the entire human race
There are people dying
if you care enough
for the living
Make a better place
for you and for me

And the dream we were conceived in
will reveal a joyful face
And the World we once believed in
will shine again in grace
Then why do we keep strangling life
wound this earth crucify it's soul
Though it's plain to see
this World is heavenly
be God's glow

We could fly so high
Let our spirits never die In my heart
I feel you are all my brothers
Create a world with no fear
Together we'll cry happy tears
See the nations turn their swords
into plowshares

We could really get there
if you cared enough
for the living
Make a little space
to make a better place...

Heal the World
Make it a better place
For you and for me
and the entire human race
There are people dying
if you care enough
for the living
Make a better place
for you and for me

Heal the World
Make it a better place
For you and for me
and the entire human race
There are people dying
if you care enough
for the living
Make a better place
for you and for me

Heal the World
Make it a better place
For you and for me
and the entire human race
There are people dying
if you care enough
for the living
Make a better place
for you and for me

There are people dying
if you care enough
for the living
Make a better place
for you and for me

There are people dying
if you care enough
for the living
Make a better place
for you and for me

You and for me
You and for me
You and for me
You and for me
You and for me
You and for me
You and for me
You and for me
You and for me
You and for me
You and for me

Dream On




Every time I look in the mirror
all these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It goes by, like dusk to dawn
Isn't that the way
Everybody's got their dues in life to pay

Yeah, I know, nobody knows
where it comes and where it goes
I know it's everybody's sin
you got to lose to know how to win

Half my life is in books written pages
Live and learned from fools and for sages
You know it's true
All the things come back to you

Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for de tears
Sing with me, if it's just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away


Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for de tears
Sing with me, if it's just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away

Dream on, dream on, dream on
Dream on until your dreams come true

Dream on, dream on, dream on
Dream on until your dreams come true

Dream on, dream on, dream on, dream on
Dream on, dream on, dream on, aahhhh!


Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter and sing for de tears
Sing with me, if it's just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away

Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for de tears
Sing with me, if it's just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away

Hotel California



On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance, I saw shimmering light
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night
There she stood in the doorway;
I heard the mission bell
And I was thinking to myself,
'This could be Heaven or this could be Hell'
Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor,
I thought I heard them say...

Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)
Such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Any time of year (Any time of year)
You can find it here

Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes bends
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys she calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat.
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget

So I called up the Captain,
'Please bring me my wine'
He said, 'We haven't had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine'
And still those voices are calling from far away,
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them say...

Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)
Such a lovely face
They livin' it up at the Hotel California
What a nice surprise (what a nice surprise)
Bring your alibis

Mirrors on the ceiling,
The pink champagne on ice
And she said 'We are all just prisoners here, of our own device'
And in the master's chambers,
They gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives,
But they just can't kill the beast

Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the door
I had to find the passage back
To the place I was before
'Relax,' said the night man,
'We are programmed to receive.
You can check-out any time you like,
But you can never leave!'

Streets of Philadelphia




I was bruised and battered and I couldn't tell What I felt
I was unrecognizable to myself I saw my
reflection in a window I didn't know My own face
Oh brother are you gonna leave me Wastin´away
On the streets of Philadelphia.

I walked the avenue till my legs felt like stone
I heard the voices of friends vanished and gone
At night I could hear the blood in my veins
Black and whispering as the rain
On the streets of Philadelphia.

Ain't no angel gonna greet me
It's just you and I my friend
My clothes don't fit me no more
I walked a thousand miles
Just to slip the skin.

The night has fallen, I'm lyinawake
I can feel myself fading away
So receive me brother with your faithless kiss
Or will we leave each other alone like this
On the streets of Philadelphia.

Somebody to love



(Can anybody find me somebody to love?)

Each morning I get up I die a little
Can barely stand on my feet
Take a look in the mirror and cry
Lord what you're doing to me
I have spent all my years in believing you
But I just can't get no relief, Lord!
Somebody, uhh somebody
Can anybody find me somebody to love?

I work hard every day of my life
I work till I ache my bones
At the end I take home my hard earned pay all on my own
I get down on my knees
And I start to pray
Till the tears run down from my eyes
Lord, somebody, uhh somebody
Can anybody find me somebody to love?

(He works hard)

Everyday, I try and I try and I try
But everybody wants to put me down
They say I'm goin' crazy
They say I got a lot of water in my brain
Got no common sense
I got nobody left to believe

(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

(Oh Lord)
Uhh Somebody, uhh
Can anybody find me somebody to love?

Got no feel, I got no rhythm
I just keep losing my beat
I'm ok, I'm alright
Ain't gonna face no defeat
I just gotta get out of this prison cell
Someday I'm gonna be free, Lord!

(find me somebody to love)
(find me somebody to love)
(find me somebody to love)

Can anybody find me somebody to love?

I'm Yours

Well you done done me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill but you're so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks
Now I'm trying to get back
Before the cool done run out
I'll be giving it my bestest
And nothing's going to stop me but divine intervention
I reckon it's again my turn to win some or learn some

I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I'm yours

Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you're free
Look into your heart and you'll find love love love
Listen to the music of the moment baby sing with me
I love peace for melody
It's our God-forsaken right to be loved love loved love loved

So I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait I'm sure
There's no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I'm yours

I've been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer
But my breath fogged up the glass
And so I drew a new face and laughed
I guess what I'm be saying is there ain't no better reason
To rid yourself of vanity and just go with the seasons
It's what we aim to do
Our name is our virtue

But I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait I'm sure
There's no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I'm yours

(Well open up your mind and see like me)
(Open up your plans and damn you're free)
(Look into your heart and you'll find love love love)
((Listen to the music of the moment baby sing with me)
(I love peace for melody)
(It's our God-forsaken right to be loved love loved love loved)

But I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait I'm sure
There's no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I'm yours

(Well open up your mind and see like me)
(Open up your plans and damn you're free)
(Look into your heart and you'll find love love love)
(Listen to the music of the moment baby sing with me)
(I love peace for melody)
(It's our God-forsaken right to be loved love loved love loved)

Elephant love medley

Love is a many splendid thing
Love lifts us up where we belong
All you need is love


Please don´t start that again

All you need is love

A girl has got to eat

All you need is love

Or she´ll end up on the streets

All you need is love

Love is just a game

I was made for loving you baby
you were made for loving me

The only way of loving me baby
is to pay a lovely fee

Just one night
Give me just one night

There´s no way
cause you can´t pay

In the name of love
one night in the name of love

You crazy fool
I won´t give into you

Don´t leave me this way
I can´t survive without your sweet love
Oh baby don´t leave me this way

You think that people would´ve
had enough of silly love songs

I look around me and I see that isn´t so
huh - no

Some people wanna fill the world
with silly love songs

Well what´s wrong with that I´d like to know
Cause here I go again....
Love lifts us up where we belong
Where eagles fly on a mountain high


Love makes us act like we are fools
Throw our lifes away for one happy day

We can be heroes just for one day

You, you will be mean

No, I won´t

And I, I´ll drink all the time

We should be lovers

We can´t do that

We should be lovers
and that´s a fact

No nothing would keep us together

We could steal time

just for one day
we could be heroes for ever and ever
we could be heroes for ever and ever
we could be heroes

just because I will always love you

I

can't help loving

you

How wonderful live is
now

your in the world

[Plácido Domingo]
¡Qué viva la fuerza del amor!
