I'd Rather Go Blind
(Foster, Jordan)

something told me it was over
when I saw you and him talking
something deep down in my soul said, cry boy
when I saw you and him out walking
I would rather, I would rather go blind girl
than to see you walk away from me child

so you see I love you so much
I don't want to see you leave me baby
most of all I just don't, I just don't want to be free
I was just, I was just sitting here thinking
of your kiss and your warm embrace child
when the reflection in the glass
that I been held to my lips now baby
revealed the tears I had on my face
I would rather, I would rather be blind child
than to see you walk away from me
baby, baby, baby I would rather go blind
than to see you walk away from me
 
 

 

Jealous Guy
(John Lennon)

I was dreaming of the past
and my heart was beating fast
I began to lose control
I began to lose control
I didn't want to hurt you
and I'm sorry I made you cry, no
I didn't want to hurt you, no I didn't care
I'm just a jealous guy
I was feeling insecure
you might not need me anymore
I was shivering inside
I was shivering inside
I didn't want to hurt you
and I'm sorry I made you cry, oww
I didn't want to hurt you, no I didn't care
I'm just a jealous guy
 

 

I Wish It Would Rain
(Whitfield, Strong, Penzabine)

sunshine, blue skies, please go away
my love has found another, gone away
withered up my future, my life is filled with gloom
day after day I stay locked up in my room
I know to you it might sound strange
but I wish it would rain
curse so badly, I don't want to go outside
everyone knows that a man ain't supposed to cry
listen, I've got to cry, 'cause crying sheds the pain
to the world outside my tears I refuse to explain
I wish it would rain
let it rain
looking down at my tear stained face pressed against the window pane
but I search the sky desperately for rain
'cause raindrops will hide my teardrops, no one will ever know
when I'm crying, crying when I go outside
to the world outside my tears I refuse to explain
I wish it would rain
let it rain

 

 

 

You Can Make Me Dance, Sing, Or Anything
(Jones, McLagan, Stewart, Wood, Yamauchi)

hey baby, I wanna say something to ya', listen
sometimes when I get out of my head
and I say all the wrong things
sometimes I know I stay out late at night
and I get back fighting, hey babe
somehow all my plans keep slippin' through my hands
and I end up crying, but listen
I can be a millionaire
honey when you're standing there you're so exciting
you can make me dance, you can make me sing
you can make me do just any old thing and I love it
sometimes I wanna get up so early
and get away from here girl
summer's gone and before long
north winds blow, that bring the snow
I'll keep us warm girl
my schemes it seems are merely dreams
fading with each morning, hey babe
but this old heart of mine
is far too proud not to keep on trying
you can make me dance, you can make me sing
you can make me do just any old thing, yeah baby
so little bird don't fly away
want you here every day
don't ever leave me
I'd rather lose both my eyes
than never see your smiling face again girl
you can make me dance, you can make me sing
you can make me do just any old thing
you can make me dance, you can make me sing
you can make me do just any old thing
hey babe, keep on loving me babe
yeah, keep on loving me babe
just keep on loving me babe ...
just keep on loving me darling ...
woww, alright, hey baby, oh darling
keep on loving me darling
just keep on loving me darling ...

 

 

 

Pool Hall Richard
(Wood, Stewart)

Sweatin' hard, I didn't get a shot
All I did was stand around and get too hot
Knowin' all the people walkin' on my side
losin' all my money and I'm getting tired
All the women come a-runnin' like he's Getty's son
makes you kind of jealous but it sure is fun
I don't mind, but he wants my lady too

you know the crowd gets bigger as the word goes 'round
pool hall king was playin' back in town
Minnesota Fats standin' up at the back
tryin' to hide himself in a plastic mack
you ought to hear the silence when the kid walks in
his reputation's bigger than gasoline
I don't mind but he's tryin' to fill my lady too
Pool Hall Richard, you're far too wicked we know
Pool Hall Richard, kid you're wicked, we know
You broke more hearts than a gigolo could ever do
with your yellow carnation and your pink satin shoe
you make me jealous but I worship you
one day soon I'm gonna beat you clean
wipe that smile right off your chin
everybody gonna drive from miles around
cuein' up to see me take away your crown
then you'll never never ever take my lady then

Pool Hall Richard, you're far too wicked we know
Pool Hall Richard, kid you're wicked, we know
You broke more hearts than a gigolo could ever do

bam goes the brown, that's another one down
know they play much better when the sun goes down
bang goes the green, you're so obscene
your hands are dirty but your scent is clean
bam goes the blue, lock away your cue
the pool hall king is hustlin' you
bam goes the 8-ball, didn't see it spin at all
this kid can play, oh yeah

bam goes the brown, ooh another one down
know they play much better when the sun goes down
bang goes the green, you're so obscene
your hands are dirty, your scent is clean
damn the pink, one more to sink
gonna beat you someday 'cause you're makin' me sick
down on the black, at the back of the pack
aw, you nearly missed, you ain't so hot

Pool Hall Richard, kid you're wicked, we know
You broke more hearts than a gigolo could ever do
you're breakin' my heart
but you're stealin' my tart
shut up

  

 

Angel
(Jimi Hendrix)  

Angel came down from heaven yesterday
stayed with me long enough to rescue me
and she told me a story yesterday
about the sweet love between the moon and the deep blue sea
then she spread her wings high over me
she said she's goin' now, come back tomorrow
and I said, fly on my sweet angel
fly on through the sky
fly on my sweet angel
forever I'm will be by your side
gonna fly away
sure enough this morning came unto me
silver wings silhouetted against a child's sunrise
and my angel she said unto me
today's the day for you to rise


ke my hand, you're gonna be my man, you're gonna rise
then she took me high over yonder
and I said, fly on my sweet angel
fly on through the sky
fly on my sweet angel
forever I will be by your side
 
 
 

It's All Over Now
(Bobby and Shirley Womack)

baby used to stay out all night long
she made me weep, you know she done me wrong
she held my eyes open and that's no lie
tables turned and now it's her turn to cry
because I used to love her but it's all over now
because I used to love her but it's all over now
well I used to wake the morning get my breakfast in bed
when I got worried she'd ease my aching head
but now she's here and there with every single man in town
still try to take me for that same old brand
because I used to love her but it's all over now
because I used to love her but it's all over now
she used to run around with every single man in town
spent all my money playing her fast game
she used to put me down, it was a pity how I cried
but the tables turned and now it's her turn to cry
because I used to love her but it's all over now
because I used to love her but it's all over now
because I used to love her but it's all over now

 

 

 

Cut Across Shorty
(Walker, Wilken)

now a country boy named Shorty
and a city boy named Dan
had to prove who could run the fastest
to wed Miss Lucy's hand
now Dan had all the money
and he also had the looks
but Shorty musta had that something boys
that can't be found in books
cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across
that's what Miss Lucy said
cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across
you know it's you that I wanna wed
wait a minute
now Dan had been in training
about a week before the race
he made up his mind old Shorty
would end in second place
you know Dan with his long legs flying
he left Shorty far behind
Shorty heard him holler out
Miss Lucy that you'll soon be mine
cut across Shorty ... but Shorty wasn't worried
there was a smile upon his face
'cause old Lucy had fixed the race

and just like that old story
about the turtle and the hare
you know that thing
when Danny crossed over the finish line
he found Shorty waiting there
cut across Shorty ...
it's you that I wanna wed, no no
and oh Lord it's you I wanna wed
it's you that I wanna wed
