A Little Sugar Do You Good

You could stand a little sugar
A little sweetenup, that's right
Smile one time for me
A little sugar do you good

Come walk over here
Stand right there
Make me think you want me
A little sugar do you good

Open your mouth - like that
Close your eyes
I got a surprise for you - yes I do
A little sugar do you good

Can you feel the heat?
Can you feel the beat?
You could stand a little sugar
A little sugar do you good

Don't worry bout it baby
I got a thing for you
Be plenty of time for talkin later on
When we both in the mood

I'm gonna take you home
Gonna take you where I want you
Step a little closer
A little sugar do you good

Mmmm Mmmm
Mmmm Mmmm
Mmmm Mmmm
A little sugar do you good
Little sugar do you good

An Ardent Man

In the glow of tungsten
In the shadowy room
With the velvet curtain
And the stale perfume
By the Persian carpet
On the old divan
It was there he courted her
An ardent man

He said my dear there's nothing that I wouldn't face
Just to spend a moment in your warm embrace
But your cool behavior and your stiff repose
Speak of lonely evenings while my thoughts compose

A song for you
A serenade of love
Chanson d'amour
Chagrin toujours

Then she wavered gently
To her lover's speech
And with steel intention
Did for his hand reach
And she placed it firmly
On her trembling skin
And she whispered softly
See what lies within

Because you see we're hoping for the same effect
And it's love's sweet promise that we both expect
So you must be patient but you must be firm
If you truly love me you must show concern

The Bride Wore White

You wanna hear something funny?
The bride wore white
Her lipstick was smeared
And her clothes were a fright
Well the groom was in an uproar
Lookin' all around
He sent out his detectives
To the sneaky side of town

Well the party went as scheduled
Everybody was there
The girls were in a corner
Talkin' bout their hair
And all the toughs were shufflin'
Round and around
Making little faces
And puttin' them down
And they said "Everybody wants a little piece of the action
Everybody wants to deny me satisfaction"
They said "Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm"
You wanna hear something funny?
The bride wore white
Her lipstick was smeared
And her clothes were a fright
Well the groom was in an uproar
Lookin' all around
He sent out his detectives
To the sneaky side of town
And he said "Everybody wants a little piece of the action
Everybody wants to deny me satisfaction"
And he said "No no no no no no!"

Come on Up

Come on up
Get yourself together
Don't say never now
You be alone no more
Come on up
Get yourself together
Good time gonna pass right through your door

Come on up
Get yourself together
Don't say never no
You know you're happy or you're sad
Come on up
Get yourself together
Good times may never be so bad

And when they told you that your love would never die
They didn't talk about the pain
And when they told you that your love would never die
They didn't bother to explain
Come on up, come on up, come on up, come on up!

Cool Down Tonight

Hey don't go out tonight
You're dressing way too tight
Hey baby can't you see
That you belong to me?
You belong to me

I try to be so cool
But now I'm just your fool
So please don't go away
And leave me here to stay
Leave me here to stay

There's nothing more to say
Why must you go that way
Oh won't you please cool down tonight?
Oh girl you must stay here
I can't survive my fear
Oh won't you please cool down tonight?

Now now now when you're gone
The moments are too long
So please don't go away
And leave me here to stay
Leave me here to stay

Cool Is Elusive

Cool is elusive
Hard to find and hard to hold
Cool is elusive
No wonder people sell their souls

Cool is cryptic
Difficult to qualify
Cool is a feeling
So cool so cool you want to cry

Cool is erotic
The velvet feel of skin on skin
Cool is passion
And man's delicious fall to sin

You wake up in the morning
Time to start the day
The people that surround you look to you
But there's nothing more to say

Cool is forever
Earns its own reward in time
Cool everlasting
As long as you die in your prime

Dallas

Let's all fly in to Dallas and join the fine parade
There's a thousand screaming Texans standing by the motorcade
When the long rifle erupts like the rumble of a train
And the scramble that ensues to retrieve a piece of brain
And then Lincoln starts to scream and shocks the quiet of the day
All the newspaper reporters left with nothing new to say
And the crowd is so uneasy as they stand out in the rain
And the tv chants incessant noise designed to numb the pain
The thought that grabs and holds me
We'll never get this back again

You've got your innocence in a moment it's all gone
It's shocking it's so rapid and the feeling is so strong
And the soul that you had and the things you held in trust
Could evaporate so quickly and dissolve down into dust
But you can't deny the power of an accident so strong
That denies you your sense of place and where you should belong
And the crowd is so uneasy as they stand out in the rain
And the tv chants incessant noise designed to numb the pain
The thought that grabs and holds me
We'll never get this back again

Could be were out of angels could be we're out of time
Could be the devil's dancin on the grave of something fine
Could be the close of something the beginning of the end
Or the signal that the truth we know is finally closing in
Still it's hard to square the feeling with the facts we've come to see
And the broken promises it holds in store for you and me
And the crowd is so uneasy as they stand out in the rain
And the tv chants incessant noise designed to numb the pain
The thought that grabs and holds me
We'll never get this back again

Diamond Ring

Well I saw a girl with a diamond ring
Well I saw a girl with a diamond ring
With a finger like that true love don't mean a thing

Don't wear your white dress into town
Don't wear your white dress into town
You'll come back tonight with your red dress hangin down

Come take a ride in my cadillac car
Come take a ride in my cadillac car
Girl like you be a famous movie star

Come a little closer don't you slip away
Come a little closer don't you slip away
Don't you want to be my baby on such a lovely day

Don't walk the lane with your red dress on
Don't walk the lane with your red dress on
If the dogs wake up they gonna howl all night long

When you wiggle and you walk you know you look so fine
When you wiggle and you walk you know you look so fine
A woman like you could make a dead man walk the line

Well I saw a girl with a diamond ring
Well I saw a girl with a diamond ring
With a finger like that true love don't mean a thing

Division Street

I'm takin a walk down Division Street
I'm walkin down that street
It's a bitter day in winter
A perfect day for Division Street

There's a friend I knew on Division Street
An old friend over there
He's walking the other way now
It's a cold day on Division Street

It's rain fallin on Division Street
Cold rain mixed with snow
It soaks me to the skin and chills me
It's a perfect day on Division Street

There's a girl I knew walkin down Division Street
Said she loved me one time
I must be hard to see after all these years
Another day on Division Street

I gotta get off Division Street
It's killing me slowly inside
I gotta turn the corner and walk away
Before I die on Division Street
Before I die on Division Street
Before I die on Division Street
Before I die on Division Street

Do It Again

Well the night came on so quickly as we ran on down the road
With a carload full of trouble in the midnight cold
Lookin for policemen in between the signs
As we kept the needle trembling at 59

Now Jimmy he was jumpin say we shouldn't stop
I'm gettin' so excited I'm about to pop
I can see the day coming when this all will end
But until that day comes callin let's do it again

Do it again like we did it before
Then we'll take a little break and we'll do it some more
Gonna stop someday but I don't know when
And til that day comes we're gonna do it again

Driving fast as lightning satisfies my soul
Pretty girls are squealing when we take control
Searching for a turnoff we can be alone
Steamy little kisses make the good girls moan

Do it again like we did it before
Then we'll take a little break and we'll do it some more
Gonna stop someday but I don't know when
And til that day comes we're gonna do it again
And til that day comes we're gonna do it again
And til that day comes we're gonna do it again
And til that day comes we're gonna do it again

Eddie And Cathy

Eddie and Cathy were dancing to the radio
Eddie and Cathy were dancing they danced so slow
And she said "Eddie why couldn't this night last forever?"
And he said "Baby that won't be a problem. Stay here forever"

Eddie and Cathy were dancing to the radio
Eddie and Cathy were dancing they danced so slow
And she said "Eddie this feels so good I hope it never stops"
And he said "Won't you just stick with me girl
We will go out of this world together"
And she said "Alright, okay, I love you so
Alright, okay, let the music take me away"

Fontella Lane

I know a girl on Fontella Lane
She treats the boys and girls the same
My friends all think that she's insane
Can't wait to see her again

Talks to herself all day in school
The people think that she's a fool
Man I know that girl is cool
Plays by her own rules

I see her walking on down my street
Her body moves to its own beat
The pavement slaps from her bare feet
That's a girl I'd like to meet

The time I spend with her is rich
Sometimes that girl is just a bitch
Sometimes I think that she's a witch
Some nights I can't tell which from which

Some days she dresses all in green
She speaks a language so obscene
The people think that she's so mean
Crazy kingdom crazy queen

Some days she dresses all in red
She wraps her arms around my bed
She whispers she's inside my head
She'll stay there until I'm dead

Some days she dresses all in black
Won't talk to me won't cut me slack
Just when I'm about to crack
She turns to me and takes me back

I know a girl on Fontella Lane
She treats the boys and girls the same
My friends all think that she's insane
Can't wait to see her again

If Anyone Knew

If anyone thought that I'd be here in your arms tonight
Let him tell me why a girl like you would love me
If anyone thought that I'd be here holding you so tight
Let him please come forward with the news to me

If anyone knew I'd be loving you like I have today
Wish he'd let me know I've loved you so, so long before
Cause all of my schemes my hopes and dreams have come true today
And I'm very glad to be alone with you

And I keep telling myself I'm dreaming
Cause heaven can't be this close to me.

I'll Never Stop

Come and take this girl away
She's gone to a better day
Her Mama knows her Daddy he knows too
That I'm in love with you

You took my heart, took it away
Now my love is here to stay
I wonder how can this be
How can you be so good to me?

Tried and I tried to do what's right
Wondered about it both day and night
Try as I may, try as I might
I can't leave you

Now we're together all the time
You live in my heart and on my mind
I promise you this - you know it's true
I'll never stop loving you

Inches From Eden

The luckiest day of my life
Was the day I nearly died
Cause that's the day
I knew I had to live - I just had to live

The happiest day of my life
Was that very same day - that very same day
Cause that's the day
I knew I'd live again - I'd live again

The saddest day of my life
Was the day I thought I'd never see you again
Or you or you or you

I was inches from Eden
Skin of my teeth
I saw my life on the street
My life on the stones
My blood and my bones
I was inches from Eden
And God let me go
He let me come back
I'm here again

The luckiest day of my life
The happiest day of my life
The saddest day of my life

I'm here again
I'm here again
I'm here again
I'm here again

In My Dream

In my dream the world is safe
Quiet and free from harm
And the sun is a pie a raspberry pie
And it's sweet and sunny and warm

In my dream people are different
Different in sight sound and smell
And the things we need and the things that we love
They can be different as well

In my dream speeches are different
But that makes them fun to divine
But in my dream when we say the word peace or love
It's the same in everyone's mind

Mmmm that's my dream
Mmmm that would be different

In my dream people say what they mean
And they don't try to hide behind words
But the way they fell is genuine, real
And the truth doesn't seem so absurd

Mmmm that's my dream
Mmmm that would be different

In The Days

In the days when Summer was long and warm
And soothed us with her languid charm
Days shone hot and night's soft breeze
Would cool our skin and give us ease

Long past youth you'd touch my skin
With a hand as soft as lanolin
And a voice as sweet as sugared rain
Would carry me to dreams again

We'd dance and sing the lowering sun
Our voices rang in unison
With wine and laughter as our tools
We'd howl away the night like fools

Fond embraces golden rings
Life's assorted little things
Held fast with passion's iron glove
And what we then believed was love

When we were young the sun shone hotter
And you played Love's obliging daughter
We moved together in brilliant light
How easy then to see the light

I found a voice impassionate
With you my muse and confidant
I knew that you were heaven sent
I was your willing supplicant

Fond embraces golden rings
Life's assorted little things
Held fast with passion's iron glove
And what we then believed was love

The vison sadly came and went
The inspiration all but spent
Forgotten names forgotten faces
Forgotten secrets in untold places
Forgotten promises forgotten dreams
Forgotten sense of what it means
The truth lay bare for us to see
And what we thought was destiny

There was a ring for her left hand
The promise of a golden band
True love for all eternity
That promise proved too brief for me
She said she'd love me all my days
She'd prove it in so many ways
She sealed it with a loving kiss
That in the end turned viperous

Fond embraces golden rings
Life's assorted little things
Held fast with passion's iron glove
And what we then believed was love
And what we then believed was love
And what we then believed was love
And what we then believed was love
And what we then believed was love

I See In You

I see in you the girl that I loved
In you the woman I married
In you the mother of my only son and my lovely daughters

I see in you the face of your mother
In you the strength of your father
In you the worry and bother of living your life with me

How would it be if we never had met
If we never had children how can I forget
All the time that I spent and the places I went with you
Heaven would be a lonely place
If I never could see your smiling face
No measure of time could erase all the love there for you

I see in you the hope of the future
In you the promise of plenty
In you the comfort and order that holds our small world apart

I see in you the promise of calm
In you our life at its best
In you repose and the rest that will soften our ages to come

Just Like Me

I think I know about you
I think I understand
I think I see the truth
As well as any man

I know the feelings you have
Because I have them too
If there's a simple reply
You know I'd give it to you

You're just like me
I understand
The way you feel
When things go wrong
You're just like me
Like any man
And I could cry
If I didn't have to be so strong

I've seen trees fall
Buildings too
I've seen men fall
I don't know about you

Time will tell
And soon you'll see
There's little space
Between you and me

Kay

I get high when I see you walk by
You touch me so sometimes I want to cry
You cool the day you make the nighttime bright
You whisper love and everything's alright

Oh Kay you make me feel like I could rule the world
But little pretty girl please watch your step
I never want to see you with a broken heart

Golden days and golden love for you
Happiness and love so free and true
No matter where the places you may go
Never fear we'll always love you so

King Of Heaven

He didn't look a thing like you and me
Mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm

I heard him speak yes I did

Might've been a prayer he said to me
Mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm

He seemed displeased now yes he did
I saw the king of heaven
He seemed disappointed in what he saw
Mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm

Well he'll change the world yes he will

Kiss Me

I don't want to hear how good it's gonna be when I get home
I don't want to hear all the things you plan when you're alone
This may be the last time that you see me
This may be the last time for a long, long time
Kiss me like it'll be the last time
Kiss me like it'll be the last time
Kiss me like it'll be the last time
I say the last time yeah

Every now and then I hear the lonely stories of the girls they love
It happens once again and you're the only thing I'm thinking of
I felt like I could hold you only yesterday
The feeling comes so strong and you're so far away
Kiss me like it'll be the last time
Kiss me like it'll be the last time
Kiss me like it'll be the last time
I say the last time yeah

Lazarus

When the world surrounds you and the word astounds you
And nothing can restore your state of grace
Tragedy confounds you from the world spinning around you
And the tears begin to trickle down your face

I'd like to get the feeling that this tragedy we're dealing with
Is something that will mellow and subside
But my fear is that it's here to stay and nothing's gonna change the day
That took away the places we could hide

Lazarus, oh Lazarus, where we gonna find you when you call
Lazarus lies sleeping while the rest of us lie weeping
Lazarus come wake and save us all

Who of us prepared for this, the terrible the awful kiss
When steel and glass connect with flesh and bone
The quality of sin and the trouble that we're in
Transform the softest heart down into stone

Lazarus, oh Lazarus, where we gonna find you when you call
Lazarus lies sleeping while the rest of us lie weeping
Lazarus come wake and save us all

Evil has a darkened face, hides it in a tragic place
We hold the key to peace here in our hands
But we would take a fool's advice and buy the lie at any price
And pour our children's blood onto the sand

Lazarus, oh Lazarus, where we gonna find you when you call
Lazarus lies sleeping while the rest of us lie weeping
Lazarus come wake and save us all
Lazarus, oh Lazarus, who among us doesn't fear the fall?
The miracle that made you and the healing love that saved you
Lazarus come wake and save us all
Lazarus come wake and save us all
Lazarus come wake and save us all
Lazarus come wake and save us all

The Liar

I passed a liar on the street today
Hadn't seen him in so long
I asked how he'd been, fine, he lied
And I lied when he asked me too

It's the same liar I met last year
Same street, different lies
Said things he wanted me to believe
Luckily I knew him for a liar

He was always a liar, always lying
Lied when his lips moved when his lips moved
I'd be lying if I didn't admit
I never believed that liar

Lied about the weather lied about his job
Lied about the color of his hair
Lied about his health and his love life too
He'd lie when he didn't need to

He was always a liar, always lying
Lied when his lips moved when his lips moved
I'd be lying if I didn't admit
I never believed that liar

Life Ain't Easy

Life ain't easy you think Im crazy?
Better listen to me
Everybody's trying to take what I have
Fought so hard to keep for myself
And every time they think they got the better of me
I fool them again
And every time I think I got the better of them
They fool me too. I'm such a fool

Girl don't believe him when a man tells you
He'll love you for life
Cause the first thing you know he'll walk out the door
Gonna leave you cryin' in heartbreak and pain
No matter how hard you try he'll leave you cryin'
Again and again and again and again
But he's cryin too he'll never let you know
How much love hurts. He's such a fool

You've got to take a little time
To taste the bitter with the sweet now
Take a little time or the first thing you know
Everybody's callin' you a fool

Little Missunderstanding

My baby said she caught me with another girl
What's our love comin' to?
Saddest thing in the whole wide world
To find that we are through
It was a little missunderstanding
A girl I hardly knew
A little missunderstanding
With that little miss I better watch the things I do

I told that little girl I'd never do her wrong
Never gonna make her cry
Whenever I'm around her now I feel so strong
She'll never hear me say goodbye
It was a little missunderstanding
A girl I hardly knew
A little missunderstanding
With that little miss I better watch the things I do

Marie

Marie, won't you come out tonight?
Won't you take a chance on me?
Treat you like a princess I swear I will
Treat you like a diamond in my hand
Treat you like the woman I know you'll be
Won't you come out and take my hand?

The moon is shining bright tonight
We'll drive up Paradise Road
Wind will play your hair like a symphony
Songs will ease your mind as we lay down
Stars will light the way for you to follow me
Won't you come out and take my hand?

My love is like the boundless sea
So strong I can't deny
Blood that courses through me hums your name in me
My thoughts are filled with you and nothing more
Your name is on my lips with every breath I take
Won't you come out and take my hand?
Marie, won't you come out tonight?

Night Train

Hookers and hustlers
Pickpockets and whores
The station is full tonight
Must be cold outdoors
Mothers and children
Or so it appears
On the platform in the night
Same scene every night of the year

Station master call the train
The crowd slowly inches along
Toward the track that takes them home
Or to where they don't belong
People in the first car
Are those who seek the light
People in the last car
Are sustained in its dark light

I spy those two but they don't spy me
Wrapped up in all their dreams
I know those two and they know me
At least that's how it seems
She could pass for a girl on the night train
As she sits there all alone
He could pass for a woman on the night train
But he ain't going home

Night train rolling, carry you along
Night train rolling, sixteen coaches long

Not Lonely

All alone but I'm not lonely
I sit at home
And I'm the only boy in town tonight

I watch tv but it's so boring
I think of you
But what am I going to do? To do?

I'm all alone
I think that I should have you here with me yeah!
Be my girl
You'd be my girl and I would set you free tonight
Oh yeah tonight!

Party Girl

Play today you'll pay tomorrow
With voiced regret and deeper sorrow
Oh party girl, you'll pay the world

Shiny lights and pretty dresses
Bitter tears and little messes
Oh party girl, you'll pay the world

Friendships lost and new ones started
Best friends lost so broken hearted
Oh party girl, you'll pay the world

But there's a new one coming in a day or two
A perfect drama for a girl like you
Mr Right just might be there
Can't take that chance, can't miss that chance

She Was Walking On Air

Once was a girl, lived in the glen
Walked down the lane and my head would spin when she walked by

Had a pretty face and a lovely smile
She knew my name and I never thought to ask her why

She was walking on air, she was walking on air
I was walking there too, I was walking on air

Now the day may come when that girl is gone
Moved away and I'll never see her by again

And I know that time will erase the time
When that girl was mine but I'll never mind the time I spent

She was walking on air, she was walking on air
I was walking there too, I was walking on air

Start Tonight

A lot of boys don't trust me and rightly so
And the girls suspect me of the worst don't you know
But I'm just a dreamer, a little kid at heart
Come on let me love you, you know we'll start
We'll start tonight, oh yeah tonight
Come on let me love you, I swear for sure I'll make it right

Let the people laugh, let the people cry
So many larger emotions pass them by
Now don't get excited, don't get too sad
Let tomorrow be the best day you've ever had
We'll start tonight, oh yeah tonight
Come on let me love you, I swear for sure I'll make it right

These Are The Days

Shall we spend this time together you and me?
Shall we idle here together in this brief eternity?
Will you be my loving comfort as the evening passes by?
And I'll rock you in my arms as the stars fill up the sky

There's no time for making wishes here tonight
Little time for wishing things had changed and somehow turned out right
Just the time we have to savor twilight shadows in the mist
And enjoy the fleeting moment in which two lovers kiss

These are the days, these are the days we dreamed about
These are the days, these are the days we dreamed about

Love is like an arrow straight and true
Love will pass the gap so narrow, find its home in you
Like a martyr you will wonder at the thing that it may mean
But the veil will soon be lifted when the mystery is seen

These are the days, these are the days we dreamed about
These are the days, these are the days we dreamed about

Under Pressure

Under pressure I walked away from the girls
Never knowin' that they were laughing at me
All the time well I knew the girls
Were wonderin' why I walk the walk I walk
And why I talk the way I talk
And why I say the things I say
Well I was so funny

Under pressure the girls laughed at me as I walked away
Never knowin' I had it under control
All the time well I knew the girls
Were wonderin' why I walk the way I walk
And why I talk the way I talk
And why I say the things I say
Well I was so funny
Under pressure oh yeah under pressure
Under pressure oh yeah!

Under pressure we live our lives on the edge of fear
Where the pressure may grow and then melt away
All the time we try we never understand
Whoa why we walk the way we walk
And why we talk the way we talk
And why we say the things we say
We are so funny
Under pressure oh yeah under pressure
Under pressure oh yeah under pressure

Used To Know A Girl Like That

Saw a girl in a pretty dress
Her hair was perfect but her life was a mess
Treat her boy oh so bad
Best damn thing she ever had
I used to know a girl like that
I used to know a girl like that
Treat me bad in front of all her friends
I used to know a girl like that

A woman wants and a woman takes
A woman makes the same mistakes
Her man is simply walking blind
Man must be out of his mind
I used to know a woman like that
I used to know a woman like that
Made me cry and she laughed so hard
I used to know a woman like that

So many men say they're on your side
So many have a sin to hide
They claim to be your eternal friend
But they knock you down in the end
I used to know a man like that
I used to know a man like that
Said he was my only friend
I used to know a man like that

There were girls in bikinis everywhere
Sunlight playin' on their pretty blonde hair
Strangest thing that I ever see - la la la la la la la coconut trees
Wahini wah hey! Wahini wah hey!

There were girls in bikinis everywhere
Sunlight playin' on their pretty blonde hair
Strangest thing that I ever see - la la la la la la la coconut trees
Wahini wah hey! Wahini wah hey!
Wahini wah hey! Wahini wah hey!
Ooh mah mah mah mah mah mah mah ooh mah mah mah mah mah wahini wah hey

West End Girls

Well West End girls are never bad
West End girls are never sad
They give West End boys the best they've had
Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah

West End girls are so carefree
But West End moms watch carefully
When West End boys say "Play with me"
Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah

When West End girls all stand in line
West End girls are so divine
West End sparkle West End shine
Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah
Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah
Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah Aah
Well, those West End girls
They're crazy they're lazy too
I love those girls I love you
My girls girls girls I dig girls girls girls girlsgirlsgirls

Where I Was Raised

Where I was raised the place is gone
Torn from its stone foundation
Flood took it down in 69
Washed off to Richmond in a muddy stream

My family scattered to the wind
The simple things forgotten
My childhood lost in misery
A pauper's son set down the road

I met a woman half my age
I thought the world of her fair hair
She hurt my heart time after time
And she would laugh like it was nothing

I did the same to many girls
I told them lies to gain their trust
It hurts me now to tell you this
But it's the truth, that was me

Can't tell a man by what says
But by the way he walks through life
He'll tell a lie to gain your trust
And strike you down when you're not looking

So hear this tale and go your way
Construct your own conclusions
The world is wide and full of pain
And gentle hearts where God would lead them
