Mama Cass Elliot Dream A Little Dream Of Me TOTP ’69Z

September 19, 2019 Leave a comment

“You keep pouring into one glass and you’re never changing the straw.”
“And now to sing this lovely ballad, here is, Mama Cass.”

Stars shining bright above you,
Night breezes seem to whisper “I love you”
Birds singing in the sycamore tree.
Dream a little dream of me.

Say nighty-night and kiss me,
Just hold me tight and tell me you’ll miss me.
While I’m alone, blue as can be,
Dream a little dream of me.

Stars fading but I linger on, dear
Still craving your kiss.
I’m longing to linger till dawn, dear,
Just saying this

Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you.
But in your dreams, whatever they be,
Dream a little dream of me.

Stars fading but I linger on, dear
Still craving your kiss.
I’m longing to linger till dawn, dear,
Just saying this

Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries far behind you.
But in your dreams, whatever they be,
Dream a little dream of me.

Kansas – Carry On Wayward Son (Live from Canada Jam)

September 18, 2019 Leave a comment

Carry on my wayward son
For there’ll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don’t you cry no more

Once I rose above the noise and confusion
Just to get a glimpse beyond the illusion
I was soaring ever higher, but I flew too high
Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man
Though my mind could think I still was a mad man
I hear the voices when I’m dreamin’, I can hear them say

Carry on my wayward son
For there’ll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don’t you cry no more

Masquerading as a man with a reason
My charade is the event of the season
And if I claim to be a wise man, it surely means that I don’t know
On a stormy sea of moving emotion
Tossed about I’m like a ship on the ocean
I set a course for winds of fortune, but I hear the voices say

Carry on my wayward son
For there’ll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don’t you cry no more

Carry on, you will always remember
Carry on, nothing equals the splendor
Now your life’s no longer empty
Surely heaven waits for you

Carry on my wayward son
For there’ll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don’t you cry no more

She’s A Beauty – The Tubes (live San Francisco 1983)

September 17, 2019 Leave a comment

Step right up and don’t be shy
Because you will not believe your eyes
She’s right here behind the glass
And you’re gonna like her
‘Cause she’s got class
You can look inside another world
You get to talk to a pretty girl
She’s everything you dream about
But don’t fall in love

She’s a beauty
She’s one in a million girls
She’s a beauty
Why would I lie?
Why would I lie?

You can say anything you like
But you can’t touch the merchandise
She’ll give you every penny’s worth
But it will cost you a dollar first
You can step outside your little world
You can talk to a pretty girl
She’s everything you dream about
But don’t fall in love

She’s a beauty
She’s one in a million girls
One in a million girls
Why would I lie?
Why would I lie?
But don’t fall in love
‘Cause if you do, you’ll find out she don’t love you
She’s one in a million girls
One in a million girls
Why would I lie?
Now, why would I lie?

(Step outside your world)

(But don’t fall in love) she’s a beauty
(She’s one in a million girls) one in a million girls
(Why would I lie?) now why would I lie?

(But don’t fall in love) ’cause if you do, you’ll find out she don’t love you
(She’s one in a million girls) one in a million girls
(Why would I lie?) why would I lie?

(But don’t fall in love)
(She’s one in a million girls)
(Why would I lie?)
