Elton John – Your Song (1970) Live on BBC TV – HQ

May 22, 2019 Leave a comment

It’s a little bit funny, this feeling inside
I’m not one of those who can easily hide
I don’t have much money, but boy if I did
I’d buy a big house where we both could live

If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a traveling show
I know it’s not much, but it’s the best I can do
My gift is my song, and this one’s for you

And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple, but now that it’s done
I hope you don’t mind, I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world

I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
Well, a few of the verses, well, they’ve got me quite cross
But the sun’s been quite kind while I wrote this song
It’s for people like you that keep it turned on

So excuse me forgetting, but these things I do
You see I’ve forgotten if they’re green or they’re blue
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I’ve ever seen

And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple, but now that it’s done
I hope you don’t mind, I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world

I hope you don’t mind, I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world

Isley Brothers – Who’s That Lady ( live)

May 21, 2019 Leave a comment

Who’s that lady? Who’s that lady?
Beautiful lady, who’s that lady?
Lovely lady, who’s that lady?
Real fine lady, who’s that lady?

Hear me callin’ out to you
‘Cause it’s all that I can do
Your eyes tell me to pursue
But you say look yeah but don’t touch, baby
Nah, nah, nah don’t touch

Who’s that lady? Who’s that lady?
Sexy lady, who’s that lady?
Beautiful lady, who’s that lady?
Real fine lady, who’s that lady?

I would dance upon a string
Any gift she’d wanna bring
I would give her anything
If she would just do what I say
Come ’round my way baby, shine my way

Who’s that lady? Who’s that lady?
Beautiful lady, who’s that lady?
Lovely lady, who’s that lady?
Real fine lady, who’s that lady?

I would love to take her home
But her heart is made of stone
I would keep on keepin’ on
If I don’t she’ll do me wrong
Do me wrong, yeah

May 20, 2019 Leave a comment

give me a ticket for an airoplane
i ain’t got time to take no fast train
oh ,the lonely days are gone
i’ll be right home
my baby she wrote me a letter

i don’t care how much money i got to spend
i won’t find my way home again
oh the lonely days are gone
i’ll be right home
my baby, she wrote me a letter

she wrote me a letter
said she couldn’t live with out me no more
listen to me mister don’t you ever xxxx
my baby once more
anyway

give me a ticket for an airoplane
i ain’t got time to take no fast train
oh ,the lonely days are gone
i’ll be back home
my baby she wrote me a letter

[solo]

she wrote me a letter
said she couldn’t live with out me no more
listen to me mister don’t you ever xxxx
my baby once more
anyway

give me a ticket for an airoplane
i ain’t got time to take no fast train
oh ,the lonely days are gone
i’ll be back home
my baby she wrote me a letter

my baby wrote me a letter
my baby wrote me a letter
my baby wrote me a letter

Taj Mahal – Cakewalk Into Town 1973

May 17, 2019 Leave a comment

I had the blues, so bad one time it put my face in a permanent frown
You know I’m feeling so much better, I could cakewalk into town

Honey, I woke up this mornin’ feelin’ so good, you know I laid back down again
Throw your big leg over me mama, I might not feel this good again

My baby, my baby, I do love the way she walks
And when my woman gets sleepy, I love the way she baby-talks

My work is getting scarce, oh baby, my work it done got hard,
I spend my whole day stealin’ chickens Honey from the rich folks yard

I would love to take a picnic in the country and stay all day
I wouldn’t do nothing but while my blues away

I had the blues so bad one time it put my face in a permanent frown
You know I’m feelin’ so much better I could cakewalk into town

King Crimson – 21st Century Schizoid Man

May 16, 2019 Leave a comment

Cat’s foot iron claw
Neuro-surgeons scream for more
At paranoia’s poison door
Twenty first century schizoid man

Blood rack barbed wire
Politicians’ funeral pyre
Innocents raped with napalm fire
Twenty first century schizoid man

Death seed blind man’s greed
Poets’ starving children bleed
Nothing he’s got he really needs
Twenty first century schizoid man
