Styx – Babe 1980

November 14, 2019 Leave a comment

[Chorus]
You know it’s you babe
Whenever I get weary and I’ve had enough
Feel like giving up
You know it’s you babe
Giving me the courage and the strength
I need
Please believe that it’s true
Babe I love you

Babe I’m leaving
I must be on my way
The time is drawing near
My train is going
I see it in your eyes
The love beneath your tears
But I’ll be lonely without you and I’ll need your love to see me through
So please believe me
My heart is in your hands
And I’ll be missing you

[Chorus]

Babe I’m leaving
I say it once again
And somehow try to smile
I know the feeling
I’m trying to forget
If only for a while
‘Cause I’ll be lonely without you and I’ll need your love to see me through
Please believe me
My heart is in your hands
’cause I’ll be missing you

[Chorus]

Babe I love you

Huey Lewis and the News – Workin’ for a livin’

November 13, 2019 Leave a comment

Some days won’t end ever and some days pass on by
I’ll be working here forever, at least until I die
Damned if you do, damned if you don’t
I’m supposed to get a raise week, you know damn well I won’t

Workin’ for a livin’
(Workin’)
Workin’ for a livin’
(Workin’)
Workin’ for a livin’, livin’ and workin’
I’m taking what they’re giving ’cause I’m workin’ for a livin’

Hey I’m not complainin’ ’cause I really need the work
Hittin’ up my buddy’s got me feelin’ like a jerk
Hundred dollar car note, two hundred rent
I get a check on Friday, but it’s all ready spent

Workin’ for a livin’
(Workin’)
Workin’ for a livin’
(Workin’)
Workin’ for a livin’, livin’ and workin’
I’m takin’ what they’re givin’ ’cause I’m workin’ for a livin’

Whoa whoa, workin’ for a livin’
Whoa whoa, takin’ what they givin’
Whoa whoa, workin’ for a livin’
Whoa whoa whoa

Bus boy, bartender, ladies of the night
Grease monkey, ex-junky, winner of the fight
Walkin’ on the streets it’s really all the same
Sellin’ souls, rock ‘n’ roll, any other day

Workin’ for a livin’
(Workin’)
Workin’ for a livin’
(Workin’)
Workin’ for a livin’, livin’ and workin’
I’m takin’ what they’re givin’ ’cause I’m workin’ for a livin’

Workin’ for a livin’, livin’ and workin’
I’m takin’ what they’re givin’ ’cause I’m workin’ for a livin’
Workin’ for a livin’, livin’ and workin’

NEIL YOUNG – OLD MAN

November 12, 2019 Leave a comment

Old man look at my life,
I’m a lot like you were.
Old man look at my life,
I’m a lot like you were.

Old man look at my life,
Twenty four
and there’s so much more
Live alone in a paradise
That makes me think of two.

Love lost, such a cost,
Give me things
that don’t get lost.
Like a coin that won’t get tossed
Rolling home to you.

Old man take a look at my life
I’m a lot like you
I need someone to love me
the whole day through
Ah, one look in my eyes
and you can tell that’s true.

Lullabies, look in your eyes,
Run around the same old town.
Doesn’t mean that much to me
To mean that much to you.

I’ve been first and last
Look at how the time goes past.
But I’m all alone at last.
Rolling home to you.

Old man take a look at my life
I’m a lot like you
I need someone to love me
the whole day through
Ah, one look in my eyes
and you can tell that’s true.

Old man look at my life,
I’m a lot like you were.
Old man look at my life,
I’m a lot like you were.

Thank you to all those in uniform who have served, do serve and will serve to protect our nation, our freedoms and our citizens.

At the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918:   “The war to end all wars” ended.
