Last word is the FIRST word of the next song. I'll start with Neil Young's Living With War :

I'm living with war every day
I'm living with war in my heart everyday
I'm living with war right now

And when the dawn breaks, I see my fellow man
And on the flat-screen we kill and we're killed again
And when the night falls, I pray for peace
Try to remember peace (visualize)

I join the multitudes
I raise my hand in peace
I never bow to the laws of the thought police
I take a holy vow
To never kill again
To never kill again

I'm living with war in my heart
I'm living with war in my heart in my mind
I'm living with war right now

Don't take no tidal wave
Don't take no mass grave
Don't take no smokin' gun
To show how the west was won
But when the curtain falls, I pray for peace
Try to remember peace (visualize)

In the crowded streets
In the big hotels
In the mosques and the doors of the old museum
I take a holy vow
To never kill again
Try to remember peace

The rocket's red glare
Bombs bursting in air
Give proof through the night,
That our flag is still there

I'm living with war everyday
I'm living with war in my heart everyday
I'm living with war right now

I'll start the ball rolling:

Cat Stevens, "Wild World"

Now that I've lost everything to you
You say you wanna start something new
And it's breaking my heart you're leaving
Baby, I'm grieving
But if you wanna leave, take good care
Hope you have a lot of nice things to wear
But then a lot of nice things turn bad out there

Oooh baby, baby, it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
Ooooh baby, baby, it's a wild world
I'll always remember you like a child, girl

You know I've seen a lot of what the world can do
And it's breaking my heart in two
'Cause I never want to see you sad, girl
Don't be a bad girl
But if you wanna leave, take good care
Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
But just remember there's a lot of bad and beware

CHORUS

Baby, I love you
But if you wanna leave, take good care
Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
But just remember there's a lot of bad and beware

(Don't know if very many songs start with "Beware." Have fun finding one!)

Excellent, agate. Well, I can't think of a song STARTING with that in the lyrics, but here's a TITLE starting with the last word. Will that work to keep this game going ?

Beware Of Darkness - George Harrison

Watch out now,
Take care beware of the fall that's swinging
Dropping all around you
The pain that often migles
Anything to misery
Beware of darkness

Watch out now,
Take care beware of the thoughts that linger
Winding up inside your head
The hopelessness that surrounds you
In the dead of night
Beware of sadness
It can hit you
It can hurt you
Make you sore
And what is more
Is that it is not what you are here for

Watch out, now
Take care beware of the soft-shoe shuffling
Dancing down these side walls
As each your constant sufferer
Oh his name is in the dark
Beware of mine

Watch out, now
Take care beware of the real leaders
They take you should not go
While weeping at the cedars
They just want to go
Beware of darkness

The rules for the game are pretty flexible and loose, right?

I couldn't think of a song starting with "darkness," but here's one with "dark" in the title:

Dancing in the Dark (Bruce Springsteen)

I get up in the evening,
I ain't got nothing to say,
I come home in the morning
I go to bed feeling the same way,
I ain't nothing but tired,
Man, I'm just tired and bored with myself,
Hey baby, I could use just a little help.

You can't start a fire
You can't start a fire without a spark,
This gun's for hire
Even if we're just dancing in the dark.

Messages keep getting clearer,
Radio's on and I'm moving around my place
I check my look in the mirror,
I wanna change my clothes, my hair, my face,
Man, I ain't getting nowhere,
Just living in a dump like this,
There's something happening somewhere,
Baby, I just know there is.

You can't start a fire
You can't start a fire sitting around crying with a broken heart,
This gun's for hire even if we're just dancing in the dark.

You sit around getting older,
There's a joke somewhere and it's on me,
I shake the world off my shoulders,
Come on, baby, the laugh's on me

Stay in the streets of this town
And they'll be carving you up all right,
They say you got to stay hungry,
Hey baby, I'm just about starving tonight,
I'm dying for some action,
I'm sick of sitting around here trying to write this book,
I need a love reaction,
Come on, baby, gimme just one look.

You can't start a fire
You can't start a fire without your little world falling apart,
This gun's for hire even if we're just dancing in the dark.

tork is a great source on the rules here (I really don't know if you can shorten the word, although the song ends with "dark" again. I like the game alot but I don't consider myself any kind of expert (tork is, get her over here).
I listen to a lot of music but I can't think of a song that starts with dark, at the moment...

I'm not very good at this game. I have sent private messages to Latte and Laura, though.

:hal
The refrain ends in "dark," but the last word of the last stanza ends in "look," and I thought maybe the next person could take "look" as the starting word.

LOOK at me,
I'm as helpless as a kitten up a tree cat
And I feel like I'm clinging to a cloud
I can't understand,
I get misty just holding your hand

Walk my way,
And a thousand violins begin to play
Or it might be the sound of your hello
That music I hear,
I get misty the moment you're NEAR

I'm here!

Welcome Tango/tork. So NEAR is the new word, eh ? Now just what are the rules here ? 1st word/last word in lyrics or last word/1st word of title ? Perhaps we should go either/or, since each can be really difficult.

Dear Mr Soul,

The original idea was the last word of the previous would be the first word of the new song. But, I play it very loose and free. :tongue: I think you can use what ever you want. That is what everyone else does. We can decide what ever we want. study

NEAR


Artisit - Nina Simone
High Priestess of Soul

Near to you, near to you
Even though youíre far away
So near to you, always near to you
As near as april is to may
Canít you feel me there, in my favourite chair
Staring at the fireplace?
Oh so near to you, always near to you
Even now it seems weíre face to face
But it is just as if I was standing before you
Telling you how much I adore you
If Iím really dear to you, near to you
We may be far apart and yet
If Iím in your heart, really in your heart
How near to you can I get
(2x)

Oh so near to you, always near to you
As near as april is to may
Canít you feel me there, in my favourite chair
Staring at the fireplace?
Oh so near to you, always near to you
Even now it seems weíre face to face
But it is just if though I was standing before you
Telling you how much I adore you
If Iím really dear to you, near to you
We may be far apart and yet
If Iím in your heart, really in your heart
How near to you can I get?

How near to you can I get?
How near to you, can I get?

Do I have to change my name?
Will it GET me far?
Should I lose some weight?
Am I gonna be a star?

I tried to be a boy
I tried to be a girl
I tried to be a mess
I tried to be the best
I guess I did it wrong
That's why I wrote this song
This type of modern life
Is it for me?
This type of modern life
Is it for FREE?

FREE as a bird - The Beatles

Free as a bird,
it's the next best thing to be.
Free as a bird.

Home, home and dry,
like a homing bird I'll fly
as a bird on wings.

Whatever happened to
the life that we once knew?
Can we really live without each other?

Where did we lose the touch
that seemed to mean so much?
It always made me feel so...

Free as a bird,
like the next best thing to be.
Free as a bird.

Home, home and dry,
like a homing bird I'll fly
as a bird on wings.

Whatever happened to
the life that we once knew?
Always made me feel so free.

Free as a bird.
It's the next best thing to be.
Free as a bird.
Free as a bird.
Free as a bird.

BIRD of beauty - Stevie Wonder

Uuh uh
Do do do do do do
Do do do do do do

Ooh oh
Do do do do do do
Do do do do do do

Simon says that now your mind desires a vacation,
Free to join in fun and plenty recreation.
There awaits you a ticket
At Please Have A Good Time Station,
'Cause what is, is gonna stay,
Til ole Father Time decides to change.

Simon says that your mind is requesting furliugh,
Let it find the answers to things
That you've always wanted to know.
There's a tour of many places
That you've always wanted to go,
And to me that sure sounds best
'Cause it means happiness for you.

There is so much in life for you to feel
Unfound in white, red, or yellow pills.
A mind excursion can be such a trill,
You please satisfy,
Take a chance and ride
The bird of beauty of the sky.

Do do do do do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do do do do do

Tudo bem voc®ļ deve descannar a sua mente,
N„o faz mal o qu vai acontecer daqui pra fente.
Vai cantar alegria.......
Voce coracao assim tao feliz ja vai cantar carnaval.

There is so much in life for you to feel
Unfound in white, red, or yellow pills.
A mind excursion can be such a trill,
You please satisfy,
Take a chance and ride
The bird of beauty of the sky.

Do do do do do do
Do do do do do do (The bird of beauty of the sky)

Do do do do do do
Do do do do do do (The bird of beauty of the sky)

PETER GABRIEL

"Sky Blue"

lost my time lost my place in
sky blue
those two blue eyes light your face in
sky blue
i know how to fly, i know how to drown in
sky blue

warm wind blowing over the earth
sky blue
i sing through the land, the land sings through me
sky blue
reaching into the deepest shade of
sky blue

sky blue
so tired of all this travelling
so many miles away from home
i keep moving to be stable
free to wander, free to roam

train pulled out said my goodbyes
sky blue
back on the road alone with the sky
sky blue
there's a presence here no one denies
sky blue

sky blue

sky blue
so tired of all this travelling
so many miles away from home
i keep moving to be stable
free to wander, free to roam

i can hear the same voice calling
crying out, from my heart
and that cry, what a cry
what a cry, it's going to be
if i can stop to let it out, oh

Oh Superman, Oh Judge, O Mom and Dad, Mom and Dad
O Superman, O Judge, O Mom and Dad, Mom and Dad
Hi, I'm not home right now. But if you want to
leave a message, just start talking at the
sound of the tone.
Hello? This is your Mother. Are you there? Are you
coming home?
Hello? Is anybody home? Well, you don't know me,
but I know you.
And I've got a message to give to you
Here come the planes
So you better get ready. Ready to go. You can come
as you are, but pay as you go. Pay as you go.

And I said: OK. Who is this really? And the voice
said:
This is the hand, the hand that takes. This is the
hand, the hand that takes.
This is the hand, the hand that takes.
Here come the planes.
They're American planes. Made in America.
Smoking or non-smoking?
And the voice said: Neither snow nor rain nor gloom
of night shall stay these couriers from the
swift completion of their appointed rounds.

'Cause when love is gone, there's always justice
And when justice is gone, there's always force,
And when force is gone, there's always Mom. Hi Mom!

So hold me, Mom, in your long arms. So hold me,
Mom, in your long arms
In your automatic arms. Your electronic arms. In
your arms
So hold me, Mom, in your long arms
Your petrochemical arms. Your military arms.
In your electronic arms.

[Laurie Anderson, "O Superman"]

Itís his love that makes me strong
Without him I canít go on
This time Iíll life my life at ease
Being happy loviní whom I please
And each time we make romance

Great avatar Tango (John Lennon). This may be a bit non-typical of me, but...CHANCEs Are - Johnny Mathis

Chances are 'cause I wear a silly grin
The moment you come into view
Chances are you think that I'm in love with you
Just because my composure sort of slips
The moment that your lips meet mine
Chances are you think my heart's your Valentine

In the magic of moonlight when I sigh, "Hold me close, dear"
Chances are you believe the stars that fill the skies are in my eyes

Guess you feel you'll always be the one and only one for me
And if you think you could
Well, chances are your chances are awfully good

Chances are you believe the stars that fill the skies are in my eyes
Guess you feel you'll always be the one and only one for me
And if you think you could
Well, chances are your chances are awfully good

The chances are your chances are . . . awfully good

Good Day Sunshine (Beatles)

Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine

I need to laugh, and when the sun is out
I got something I can laugh about
I feel good in a special way
I'm in love and it's a sunny day

Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine

We take a walk
The sun is shining down
Burns my feet as they touch the ground

Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine

Then we lie beneath the shady tree
I love her and she's loving me
She feels good
She knows she's looking fine
I'm so proud to know that she is mine

Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine

I don't know about songs starting with sunshine--there probably are some, but I just can't think of any. Luckily it's a flexible game.

Sunshine - Jonathan Edwards
Sunshine go away today
I don't feel much like dancing
Some man's gone, he's tried to run my life
Don't know what he's asking

He tells me I'd better get in line
Can't hear what he's saying
When I grow up I'm going to make it mine
But these aren't dues I been paying

(Chorus)
How much does it cost, I'll buy it
The time is all we've lost, I'll try it
But he can't even run his own life
I'll be damned if he'll run mine, Sunshine

Sunshine go away today
I don't feel much like dancing
Some man's gone he's tried to run my life
Don't know what he's asking

Working starts to make me wonder where
The fruits of what I do are going
He says in love and war all is fair
But he's got cards he ain't showing

(Chorus)

Sunshine come on back another day
I promise you I'll be singing
This old world, she's gonna turn around
Brand new bells'll be ringing

Eagles
Please Come Home for Christmas


Bells will be ringing this sad sad New Years
Oh what a Christmas to have the blues
My baby's gone I have no friends
To wish me greetings once again
Cries will be singing Silent Night
Christmas carols by candlelight
Please come home for Christmas
Please come home for Christmas
If not for Christmas by New Years night
Friends and relations send salutations
Sure as the stars shine above
But this is Christmas yes Christmas my dear
The time of year to be with the ones you love
So won't you tell me you'll never more roam
Christmas and new Years will find you home
There'll be no more sorrow no grief and pain
And I'll be happy, happy once again
Oh there'll be no more sorrow, no grief and pain
And I'll be happy, Christmas once AGAIN

Again tonight - John Mellencamp

Run in circles again tonight
Hump the moon again tonight
Gonna wear my dancin? shoes out tonight
Gonna have myself a big time again tonight

Chorus:
Again tonight

Again tonight

Girlīs got lightning
Underneath her skirt
Boys try to touch it
For whatever itīs worth
In the morning
Sheīs just gonna be hurt
She wonders is it worth it again tonight

Chorus:
Again tonight
Again tonight
Again tonight

Gonna catch the cloud tonight
Nine, cloud nine
Gonna try and catch that cloud tonight
Nine, cloud nine
Again tonight

Can you hold me baby again, again tonight
Can you sing
Can you dance baby
Can you sing
Can you hold me again tonight
Baby can you sing

Get ego tripīn again tonight
Tell the same lies they work all right
Gonna wear my dancin? shoes out tonight
Probably make a fool of myself again tonight

Chorus:
Again tonight
Again tonight
Again tonight

Again tonight
Again tonight

Tonight's the Night by Rod Stewart
...
TONIGHT's the night
It's gonna be all right
Cause I'm in love with you girl
Ain't nobody gonna stop us now

C'mon angel my hearts on fire
Don't deny your man's desire
You'd be a fool to stop this tide
Spread your wings and let me come INSIDE

Okay - my first post and I'm already freaking confused. geek

Like Tango said, the ORIGINAL song game, TuttiDolce's, was last word becomes first word. But, we "cheated" all the time. And nobody's grading us anyway, and, none of us ever paid any attention, anyway. :tongue: All we wanted to do was sing our little hearts out! cheers

Hey Tango Tango! How ya doing, gurlfriend? Guess I'll start out with a big cheat: bonedemon



Stuck INSIDE of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again
- Bob Dylan, 1966

Oh, the ragman draws circles
Up and down the block.
I'd ask him what the matter was
But I know that he don't talk.
And the ladies treat me kindly
And furnish me with tape,
But deep inside my heart
I know I can't escape.
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end,
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again.

Well, Shakespeare, he's in the alley
With his pointed shoes and his bells,
Speaking to some French girl,
Who says she knows me well.
And I would send a message
To find out if she's talked,
But the post office has been stolen
And the mailbox is locked.
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end,
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again.

Mona tried to tell me
To stay away from the train line.
She said that all the railroad men
Just drink up your blood like wine.
An' I said, "Oh, I didn't know that,
But then again, there's only one I've met
An' he just smoked my eyelids
An' punched my cigarette."
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end,
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again.

Grandpa died last week
And now he's buried in the rocks,
But everybody still talks about
How badly they were shocked.
But me, I expected it to happen,
I knew he'd lost control
When he built a fire on Main Street
And shot it full of holes.
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end,
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again.

Now the senator came down here
Showing ev'ryone his gun,
Handing out free tickets
To the wedding of his son.
An' me, I nearly got busted
An' wouldn't it be my luck
To get caught without a ticket
And be discovered beneath a truck.
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end,
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again.

Now the preacher looked so baffled
When I asked him why he dressed
With twenty pounds of headlines
Stapled to his chest.
But he cursed me when I proved it to him,
Then I whispered, "Not even you can hide.
You see, you're just like me,
I hope you're satisfied."
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end,
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again.

Now the rainman gave me two cures,
Then he said, "Jump right in."
The one was Texas medicine,
The other was just railroad gin.
An' like a fool I mixed them
An' it strangled up my mind,
An' now people just get uglier
An' I have no sense of time.
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end,
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again.

When Ruthie says come see her
In her honky-tonk lagoon,
Where I can watch her waltz for free
'Neath her Panamanian moon.
An' I say, "Aw come on now,
You must know about my debutante."
An' she says, "Your debutante just knows what you need
But I know what you want."
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end,
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again.

Now the bricks lay on Grand Street
Where the neon madmen climb.
They all fall there so perfectly,
It all seems so well timed.
An' here I sit so patiently
Waiting to find out what price
You have to pay to get out of
Going through all these things twice.
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end,
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again.

Here Comes The Rain Again

Here comes the rain again
Falling on my head like a memory
Falling on my head like a new emotion
I want to walk in the open wind
I want to talk like lovers do
I want to dive into your ocean
Is it raining with you

So baby talk to me
Like lovers do
Walk with me
Like lovers do
Talk to me
Like lovers do

Here comes the rain again
Raining in my head like a tragedy
Tearing me apart like a new emotion
Oooooh
I want to breathe in the open wind
I want to kiss like lovers do
I want to dive into your ocean
Is it raining with you

So baby talk to me
Like lovers do

Here comes the rain again
Falling on my head like a memory
Falling on my head like a new emotion
(here it comes again, here it comes again)
I want to walk in the open wind
I want to talk like lovers do
I want dive into your ocean
Is it raining with you

[Eurythmics, "Here Comes the Rain Again"]

A cheat too, but I can't think of any songs starting with "Again."

YOU & me - Neil Young

Open up your eyes
See how life time flies
Open up and let the light back in.

Open up your heart
Let the lovin' start
Open up and let the light back in.

I was thinking of you and me
Makin' love beneath the tree
And now I wonder could it be.

Thinkin' 'bout the times we had
Some were good and some were bad
Guitar fightin' the T.V.

I was thinkin' 'bout you and me
I was thinkin' 'bout you and me
I was thinkin' of you and me
I was thinkin' 'bout you and me.

Lookin' at you just the other night
Dancin' in the evening light
True love conquers all.

Old man sittin' there
Touch of grey, but he don't care
When he hears his children call.

I was thinkin' 'bout you and me
I was thinkin' 'bout you and me
I was thinkin' 'bout you and me
I was thinkin' 'bout you and me.

Open up your eyes
See how life time flies
Open up and let the light back in.

Classic acoustic Neil Young here (it's on Harvest Moon which is one of my favorites)

Coming Back to Me
- Jefferson Airplane

The summer had inhaled and held its breath too long.
The winter looked the same, as if it never had gone.
And through an open window where no curtain hung,
I saw you, I saw you, comin' back to me.

One begins to read between the pages of a look.
The shape of sleepy music, and suddenly you're hooked.
Through the rain upon the trees, that kisses on the run,
I saw you, I saw you, comin' back to me.

You can't stay and live my way
Scatter my love like leaves in the wind.
You always say you want to go away.
But I know what it always has been, it always has been...

A transparent dream beneath an occasional sigh
Most of the time I just let it go by..
Now I wish it hadn't begun...
I saw you, yes I saw you, comin' back to me.

Strolling the hills overlooking the shore
I realize I've been here before.
The shadow in the mist could have been anyone.
I saw you, I saw you, comin' back to me.

Small things like reasons are put in a jar,
Whatever happened to wishes wished on a star?
Was it just something that I made up for fun?
I saw you, I saw you, comin' back to me.

Z

Hold Me TIGHT
- Beatles

It feels so right now, hold me tight,
Tell me I'm the only one,
And then I might,
Never be the lonely one.
So hold me tight, to-night, to-night,
It's you,
You you you ....

Hold me tight,
Let me go on loving you,
To-night to-night,
Making love to only you,
So hold me tight, to-night, to-night,
It's you,
You you you...

Don't know what it means to hold you tight,
Being here alone tonight with you,
It feels so right now, feels so right now.
Hold me tight,
Tell me I'm the only one,
And then I might,
Never be the only one,
So hold me tight, to-night, to-night,
It's you,
You you you...


Hey Tango! Did ya have a good day, today? I'm thinking I just might not feel comfy cozy at a party thread here, Tango. :tongue: But, I sure do love singing! cheers

You Send Me - Sam Cooke

Darling YOU send me
Darling you send me, yeah
Darling you send me (Come on baby, come on)
Honest you do (You know it)
Honest you do (Come on, don't be nervous)
Honest you do

Darling you move me
Darling you move me, yeah
Darling you move me
Honest you do
Honest you do

Oh, and at first I thought it was infatuation
But, oh, it's lasted so long
That now I find myself wanting to marry you
And take you HOME

Green, Green Grass Of Home
- Tom Jones

The old home town looks the same,
As I step down from the train,
And there to meet me is my mama and papa
Down the road I look and there runs Mary,
Hair of gold and lips like cherries.
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home

Yes, they'll all be there to meet me,
All creatures smiling sweetly
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.

The old house is still standing,
Though the paint is cracked and dry.
And there's an old oak tree that I used to play on.
Down the lane I'll walk with my sweet Mary
Hair of gold and lips like cherries.
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.

Then I awake and look around me,
Cold gray walls surround me.
And I realize that I was only dreamin'.
There's a guard and there's a sad old padre,
Arm and arm we'll walk at daybreak.
Again I'll touch the green, green grass of home.

Yes, they'll all be there to meet me
In the shadow of that old oak tree
As they lay me beneath the green, green grass of home.

[Pick a word - any word. :)]

Homeward Bound

I'm sitting in the railway station.
Got a ticket for my destination.
On a tour of one-night stands my suitcase and guitar in hand.
And ev'ry stop is neatly planned for a poet and a one-man band.
Homeward bound,
I wish I was,
Homeward bound,
Home where my thought's escaping,
Home where my music's playing,
Home where my love lies waiting
Silently for me.
Ev'ry day's an endless stream
Of cigarettes and magazines.
And each town looks the same to me, the movies and the factories
And ev'ry stranger's face I see reminds me that I long to be,
Homeward bound,
I wish I was,
Homeward bound,
Home where my thought's escaping,
Home where my music's playing,
Home where my love lies waiting
Silently for me.

Tonight I'll sing my songs again,
I'll play the game and pretend.
But all my words come back to me in shades of mediocrity
Like emptiness in harmony I need someone to comfort me.
Homeward bound,
I wish I was,
Homeward bound,
Home where my thought's escaping,
Home where my music's playing,
Home where my love lies waiting
Silently for me.
Silently for me.

It Ain't ME, Babe
- Bob Dylan

Go away from my window,
Leave at your own chosen speed.
I'm not the one you want, babe,
I'm not the one you need.
You say you're lookin' for someone
Never weak but always strong,
To protect you an' defend you
Whether you are right or wrong,
Someone to open each and every door,
But it ain't me, babe,
No, no, no, it ain't me, babe,
It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe.

Go lightly from the ledge, babe,
Go lightly on the ground.
I'm not the one you want, babe,
I will only let you down.
You say you're lookin' for someone
Who will promise never to part,
Someone to close his eyes for you,
Someone to close his heart,
Someone who will die for you an' more,
But it ain't me, babe,
No, no, no, it ain't me, babe,
It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe.

Go melt back into the night, babe,
Everything inside is made of stone.
There's nothing in here moving
An' anyway I'm not alone.
You say you're looking for someone
Who'll pick you up each time you fall,
To gather flowers constantly
An' to come each time you call,
A lover for your life an' nothing more,
But it ain't me, babe,
No, no, no, it ain't me, babe,
It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe.

THAT is a great song, agate. I have a version of it that Paul Simon did live with George Harrison back in 1975 on SNL. They also did Here Comes The Sun. Just excellent.

Sonny and Cher - I Got You Babe

...
HIM: BABE
BOTH: I got you babe
I got you babe

HER: They say our love won't pay the rent
Before it's earned, our money's all been spent
HIM: I guess that's so, we don't have a pot
But at least I'm sure of all the things we got

HIM: Babe
BOTH: I got you babe
I got you babe

HIM: I got flowers in the spring
I got you to wear my ring
HER: And when I'm sad, you're a clown
And if I get scared, you're always around

HER: Don't let them say your hair's too long
'Cause I don't care, with you I can't go wrong
HIM: Then put your little hand in mine
There ain't no hill or mountain we can't CLIMB

I Want To Take You Higher
- Sly & The Family Stone Lyrics

Feeling's gettin stronger,
Music's gettin longer too.
Music is flashin me.
I want to take you higher -
Baby baby baby light my fire.

Boom shaka-laka-laka
Boom shaka-laka-laka

Feeling's nitty-gritty
Sound is in the city too.
Music's still flashin' me
Don't ya want to get higher?
Baby baby baby light my fire.

Boom shaka-laka-laka
Boom shaka-laka-laka

Higher...
C'mon light my fire,
Want to take you higher.

Boom shaka-laka-laka
Boom shaka-laka-laka

Feeling that should make you move.
Sounds that should help you groove.
Music still flashin' me.
Take you places -
I want to take you higher.
Baby baby baby light my fire.

Hey, Z two can cheat as well as one! sunny

Arthur Brown (the Crazy World Of) - Fire

angryfireI am the god of hell fire and I bring you: angryfire

FIRE, I'll take you to burn.
Fire, I'll take you to learn.
I'll see you burn!
You fought hard and you saved and learned,
but all of it's going to burn.
And your mind, your tiny mind,
you know you've really been so blind.
Now 's your time burn your mind.
You're falling far too far behind.
Oh no, oh no, oh no, you gonna burn!
Fire, to destroy all you've done.
Fire, to end all you've become.

I'll feel you burn! angryfire
You've been living like a little girl,
in the middle of your little world.
And your mind, your tiny mind,
you know you've really been so blind.
Now 's your time burn your mind,
you're falling far too far BEHIND. angryfire

Behind Blue Eyes - The Who

...
BEHIND blue eyes

No one knows what it's like
To be hated
To be fated
To telling only lies

But my dreams
They aren't as empty
As my conscience seems to be

I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
That's never free

No one knows what it's like
To feel these feelings
Like I do
And I blame you

No one bites back as hard
On their anger
None of my pain and woe
Can show through

But my dreams
They aren't as empty
As my conscience seems to be

I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
That's never free

When my fist clenches, crack it open
Before I use it and lose my cool
When I smile, tell me some bad news
Before I laugh and act like a FOOL

Everybody Plays the FOOL
- Aaron Neville

[I forgot who sang this originally - somebody from Motown?]


Ok, so your heart is broken
You're sitting around mopin', mopin', mopin', cryin', cryin'
You say you're even thinking about dying.
Well, before you do anything rash, baby, listen to this:

Everybody plays the fool, sometime
There's no exception to the rule, listen baby
It may be factual, it may be cruel, I ain't lying
Everybody plays the fool.

Fallin' in love is such an easy thing to do
But there's no guarantee that the one you love, is gonna love you.
Oh, loving eyes they cannot see a certain person could never be.
Love runs deeper than any ocean,
It clouds you're mind with emotion.

Everybody plays the fool, sometime-
There's no exception to the rule, listen baby
It may be factual, it may be cruel, I ain't lying
Everybody plays the fool.

How can you help it when the music starts to play
And your ability to reason is swept away.
Oh, heaven on earth is all you see,
Yu're out of touch with reality
And now you cry, but when you do,
Next time around someone cries for you.

Hey, everybody plays the fool, sometime.
Use your heart just like a tool, listen baby
They never tell you so in school.
I wanna say it again,

Everybody plays the fool
Everybody plays the fool, sometime
There's no exception to the rule, listen baby
It may be factual, it may be cruel, I ain't lying
Everybody plays the fool.

ZZ

Time Is On My Side Lyrics - The Rolling Stones

TIME is on my side, yes, it is.
Time is on my side, yes, it is.
Now you were saying that you want to be free
but you'll come runnin' back, you'll come runnin' back,
you'll come runnin' back to me.

Time is on my side, yes, it is.
Time is on my side, yes, it is.
You're searching for good times but just wait and see,
you'll come runnin' back, you'll come runnin back,
you'll come runnin' back to me.

Go ahead..go ahead and light up the town!
Baby, do everything your heart desires..
remember, I'll always be around.
And I know like I told you so many times before
you're gonna come back, baby..
you're gonna come back knockin' right on my DOOR.

Next Door to an Angel
- Neil Sedaka

Dooba bop bop bop oh dooba.
She down down
Doobie bop bop bop oh dooba
She down down
Doobie bop bop bop oh dooba.
She down down
Doobie bop bop bop oh dooba.
She down down

I'm living right next door to an angel
And I just found out today.
I'm living right next door to an angel
And she only lives a house away.
She used to be such a skinny little girl
But all of a sudden she is out of this world.
I'm livin right next door to an angel
And I'm gonna make that angel mine.

Since I saw her this morning,
I'm on cloud number nine.
Found a garden of eden at the house next door to mine.
I took a look and oh what a shock
To find a little bit of heaven right on my block.
I'm livin right next door to an angel
And I'm gonna make that angel mine.

I can't believe that this is the girl next door
That funny little face isn't funny no more.
Sixteen and oh what a dream -
Ain't it strange how she changed
Into such a lovely angel.

Saw her walking down main street
And I couldn't believe my eyes.
It used to be such a plain street
But now it's paradise.
I'm feelin happy, I'm feelin so good.
I'm the luckiest devil in the neighborhood.
I'm livin right next door to an angel
And I'm gonna make that angel mine.

I Me Mine - Beatles

All thru' the day I me MINE, I me mine, I me mine.
All thru' the night I me mine, I me mine, I me mine.
Now they're frightened of leaving it
Ev'ryone's weaving it,
Coming on strong all the time,
All thru' the day I me mine.
I-me-me mine, I-me-me mine,
I-me-me mine, I-me-me mine.
All I can hear I me mine, I me mine, I me mine.
Even those tears I me mine, I me mine, I me mine.
No-one's frightened of playing it
Ev'ryone's saying it,
Flowing more freely than wine,
All thru' the day I me mine.
I-me-me mine, I-me-me mine,
I-me-me mine, I-me-me mine.
All I can hear I me mine, I me mine, I me mine.
Even those tears I me mine, I me mine, I me mine.
No-one's frightened of playing it
Ev'ryone's saying it,
Flowing more freely than WINE ...

This little light of mine,

This little light of mine,
I'm gonna let it shine.
Let it shine, let it shine, let it SHINE.

SPILL THE WINE - WAR


Spill the wine and take that pearl, Spill the wine and take that pearl
Spill the wine and take that pearl, Spill the wine and take that pearl

I was once out strolling one very hot summer's day
When I thought I'd lay myself down to rest
in a big field of tall grass
I lay there in the sun and felt it caressing my face

And I fell asleep and dreamed
I dreamed I was in a Hollywood movie
And that I was the star of the movie
This really blew my mind, the fact that me,
an overfed, long-haired leaping gnome
should be the star of a Hollywood movie

But there I was, I was taken to a place, the hall of the mountain kings
I stood high upon a mountain top, naked to the world
In front of every kind of girl, there was
black ones, round ones, big ones, crazy ones...

Out of the middle came a lady
She whispered in my ear something crazy
She said:

Spill the wine and take that pearl, Spill the wine and take that pearl
Spill the wine and take that pearl, Spill the wine and take that pearl

[spoken:]

I thought to myself what could that mean
Am I going crazy or is this just a dream
Now, wait a minute
I know I'm lying in a field of grass somewhere
so it's all in my head
and then.. I heard her say one more time:

[sung:]

Spill the wine and take that pearl, Spill the wine and take that pearl
Spill the wine and take that pearl, Spill the wine and take that pearl

[spoken:]
I could feel hot flames of fire roaring at my back
As she disappeared, but soon she returned
In her hand was a bottle of wine, in the other, a glass
She poured some of the wine from the bottle into the glass
And raised it to her lips
And just before she drank it, she said:

[sung:]
Spill the wine and take that pearl, Spill the wine and take that pearl
Spill the wine and take that pearl, Spill the wine and take that pearl


Now` there's a tough one. How about...

PEARLY QUEEN - TRAFFIC

I bought a sequined suit from a pearly queen
And she could drink more wine than I'd ever seen
She had some gypsies' blood flowing through her feet
And when the time was right she said that I would meet
My destiny

I traveled round the world to find the sun
I couldn't stop myself from having fun
And then one day I met an Indian girl
And she made me forget this troubled world
We're living in

I had a strange dream. In my hair
I saw a pearly queen lying there
And all around her feet flowers bloomed
But they were made of silk and sequins two by two

TWO of us - The Beatles

Two of us riding nowhere
Spending someone's
Hard earned pay
You and me Sunday driving
Not arriving
On our way back home
We're on our way home
We're on our way home
We're going home

Two of us sending postcards
Writing letters
On my wall
You and me burning matches
Lifting latches
On our way back home
We're on our way home
We're on our way home
We're going home

You and I have memories
Longer than the road that stretches out ahead

Two of us wearing raincoats
Standing so low
In the sun
You and me chasing paper
Getting nowhere
On our way back home
We're on our way home
We're on our way home
We're going home

You and I have memories
Longer than the road that stretches out ahead

Two of us wearing raincoats
Standing so low
In the sun
You and me chasing paper
Getting nowhere
On our way back home
We're on our way home
We're on our way home
We're going home

[We're going home,
you better believe it.
Goodbye.

Solomon Burke - Goodbye Baby (Baby Goodbye)
by Van Morrison

GOODBYE baby, so long girl.
I know you ain't gonna like it,
But I'm stepping right out in your world
For I'm coming to your party
And I won't be able to stay,
But I'm gonna kiss you one more time, Lord,
Then I'm going away.
Goodbye baby hmm, baby goodbye hmm.

You may be lonely, yeah, you may be hurt,
Like a fool I gave you candy,
You turned around and treated me like dirt.
But still I'm gonna come to your party
And just before the break of day
I'm gonna touch you one more time, Lord,
Then I'm going AWAY.

cheers Tango

All right, is everyone finding it hard to think of a song starting with "Away"? I am.

All I can think of is "Away in a Manger."

What about "On the Turning Away" by Pink Floyd? "Away" isn't the first word but the fourth. Will that do?

One problem is that it also ends with the word "away."

What do you think?

EDITED TO ADD:

Quote:
On the turning away
From the pale and downtrodden
And the words they say
Which we wont understand
Dont accept that whats happening
Is just a case of others suffering
Or youll find that youre joining in
The turning away

Its a sin that somehow
Light is changing to shadow
And casting its shroud
Over all we have known
Unaware how the ranks have grown
Driven on by a heart of stone
We could find that were all alone
In the dream of the proud

On the wings of the night
As the daytime is stirring
Where the speechless unite
In a silent accord
Using words you will find are strange
And mesmerized as they light the flame
Feel the new wind of change
On the wings of the night

No more turning away
From the weak and the weary
No more turning away
From the coldness inside
Just a world that we all must share
Its not enough just to stand and stare
Is it only a dream that therell be
No more turning away?

Dixie
by Daniel Decatur Emmett


...
Look AWAY, look away, look away Dixie Land.

In Dixie Land, where I was born in,
early on one frosty mornin',
Look away, look away, look away Dixie Land.

I wish I was in Dixie, Hooray! Hooray!
In Dixie Land Iíll take my stand
to live and die in Dixie.
Away, away, away down south in Dixie.
Away, away, away down south in Dixie

Ole Missus marry "Will the weaver"
Willum was a gay deceiver
Look away! Look away! Look away!
Dixie LAND

See Agate, it's easy when you cheat. Is this OK? scratch

OK, if you can get away with "Dixie," I might be able to get away with this:

Quote:
Land of Hope and Glory
Mother of the Free
How shall we extol thee
Who are born of thee?
Wider still and wider
Shall thy bounds be set
God, who made thee mighty
Make thee mightier yet...
God, who made thee mighty
Make thee mightier yet.

Not Dark Yet - Bob Dylan

...
It's not dark YET but it's gettin' there.

Well, my sense of humanity has gone down the drain
Behind every beautiful thing there's been some kind of pain
She wrote me a letter and she wrote it so kind
She put down in writin' what was in her mind
I just don't see why I should even care
It's not dark yet but it's gettin' there.

Well, I've been to London and I been to gay Paris
I've followed the river and I got to the sea
I've been down on the bottom of the world full of lies
I ain't lookin' for nothin' in anyone's eyes
Sometimes my burden is more than I can bear
It's not dark yet but it's gettin' there.

I was born here and I'll die here against my will
I know it looks like I'm movin' but I'm standin' still
Every nerve in my body is so naked and numb
I can't even remember what it was I came here to get away from
Don't even hear the murmur of a prayer
It's not dark yet but it's gettin' THERE.

See I told you guys that tork (Tango) is a good player, she won't let this thread die. Here's an old CW song:

THERE stands the glass - Webb Pierce

There stands the glass ...
That will ease all my pain ...
That will settle my brain ...
It's my first one to day ...
There stands the glass ...
That will hide all my tears ...
That will drown all my fears ...
Brother, I'm on my way. ... ...

CHORUS
I'm wond'ring where you are tonight
I'm wond'ring if you all right
I wonder if you think of me
In my mis-e-ry
There stands the glass
Fill it up to the brim
Till my troubles grow dim
It's my first one today.

CHORUS

(Today I Met) The Boy I'm Gonna Marry - Darlene Love

(TODAY I MET) THE BOY I'M GONNA MARRY
Darlene Love

TODAY I met the boy I'm gonna marry
He's all I wanted all my life and even more
He smiled at me and the music started playing
Here comes the bride when he walked through the door
Today I met the boy I'm gonna marry
The boy who's life and dreams and love I wanna share
The boy whose on my hand a band of gold will bear
The band of gold I always dreamed I'd wear
When we kissed I felt a sweet sensation
This time it wasn't just my imagination
Today I met the boy I'm gonna marry
He's just what I've been waiting for oh yes
With every kiss it's as if my heart keeps saying
Today I met the boy I'm gonna MARRY

brave Tango

This is the best I could come up with, but it may be too much of a cheat:



I WANNA MARRY YOU [Bruce Springsteen]

I see you walking, baby, down the street
Pushing that baby carriage at your feet
I see the lonely ribbon in your hair
Tell me I am the man for whom you put it there

You never smile girl, you never speak
You just walk on by, darlin' week after week
Raising two kids alone in this mixed up world
Must be a lonely life for a working girl

CHORUS
Little girl, I wanna marry you
Oh yeah, little girl, I wanna marry you
Yes I do
Little girl, I wanna marry you

Now honey, I don't wanna clip your wings
But a time comes when two people should think of these things
Having a home and a family
Facing up to their responsibilities
They say in the end true love prevails
But in the end true love can't be no fairytale
To say I'll make your dreams come true would be wrong
But maybe, darlin', I could help them along

CHORUS

My daddy said right before he died
That true, true love was just a lie
He went to his grave a broken heart
An unfulfilled life, makes a man hard

Oh, darlin'
There's something happy and there's something sad
'Bout wanting somebody, oh so bad,
I wear my love darlin', without shame

Ain't That A Shame - Fats Domino

You made me cry when you said good-bye
Ain't that a SHAME my tears fall like rain
Ain't that a shame your the one to blame
You broke my heart now we're apart
Ain't that a shame my tears fall like rain
Ain't that a shame your the one to blame
So long good-bye although I cry
Ain't that a shame my tears fall like rain
Ain't that a shame your the one to blame
You made me cry when you said good-bye
Ain't that a shame my tears fall like rain
Ain't that a shame your the one to blame
You made me cry when you said good-bye
Ain't that a shame my tears fall like rain
Ain't that a shame your the one to BLAME

Bob Seger õ Shame On The Moon
Words and music by rodney crowell

Until youve been beside a man
You dont know what he wants
You dont know if he cries at night
You dont know if he dont
When nothin comes easy
Old nightmares are real
Until you ve been beside a man
You dont know how he feels

Once inside a womans heart
A man must keep his head
Heaven opens up the door
Where angels fear to tread
Some men go crazy
Some men go slow
Some men go just where they want
Some men never go

Oh blame it on midnight
Ooh shame on the moon

Everywhere its all around
Comfort in a crowd
Strangers faces all around
Laughin right out loud
Hey watch where your goin
Step light on old toes
Cause until youve been beside a man
You dont know who he knows

Oh blame it on midnight
Ooh shame on the moon
Oh blame it on midnight
Ooh shame on the moon

Frank Sinatra - Blue Moon

Blue MOON
You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in
my heart
Without a love of my own
Blue Moon
You
know just what I was there for
You heard me saying a prayer
for
Someone I really could care for

And then
there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will
hold
I heard somebody whisper please adore me
And when
I looked to the Moon it turned to GOLD

Here's a really old song--I couldn't think of anything else with "gold" in it. Couldn't think of any song at all with "gold" as the first word. Maybe somebody else can think of one.

Quote:
Band Of Gold

- previously charted in 1955 by Don Cherry (#5), Kit Carson (#11),
- Words and Music by Bob Musel and Jack Taylor


I've never wanted wealth untold
My life has one design
A simple little band of gold
To prove that you are mine

Don't want the world to have and hold
For fame is not my line
Just want a little band of gold
To prove that you are mine

Some sail away to Araby and other lands of mystery
But all the wonders that they see will never tempt me

Their memories will soon grow cold
But till the end of time
There'll be a little band of gold
To prove that you are mine

I've never wanted wealth untold
But till the end of time
There'll be a little band of gold
To prove that you are mine

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword;
His truth is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on.

I have seen Him in the watch fires of a hundred circling camps
They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps;
I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps;
His day is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His day is marching on.

I have read a fiery Gospel writ in burnished rows of steel;
ďAs ye deal with My contemners, so with you My grace shall dealĒ;
Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with His heel,
Since God is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Since God is marching on.

He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat;
He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment seat;
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! be jubilant, my feet;
Our God is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Our God is marching on.

In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me:
As He died to make men holy, let us live to make men free;
[originally Ölet us die to make men free]
While God is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! While God is marching on.

He is coming like the glory of the morning on the wave,
He is wisdom to the mighty, He is honor to the brave;
So the world shall be His footstool, and the soul of wrong His slave,
Our God is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Our God is marching on.

On Top Of Old Smokey - Weavers

ON top of old Smokey
All covered with snow
I lost my true lover
For courtin' so slow

For courting's a pleasure (for courting's a pleasure)
But parting is grief (but parting is grief)
And the false hearted lover (and the false hearted lover)
Is worse than a thief (is worse than a thief)

A thief will just rob you (a thief will just rob you)
And take what you have (and take what you have)
But a false hearted lover (but a false hearted lover)
Will lead you to the grave (will lead you to the grave)

And the grave will decay you (and the grave will decay you)
Turn you to dust (and turn you to dust)
Not one boy in a hundred (not one boy in a hundred)
A poor girl can trust (a poor girl can TRUST)

Janis Joplin lyrics :: Trust Me


Trust in me, baby, give me time, gimme time, um gimme time.
I heard somebody say, oh, The older the grape,
Sweeter the wine, sweeter the wine.
Oh, my love is like a seed, baby, just needs time to grow,
It's growing stronger day by day, yeah,
That's the price you've got to pay.
Trust in me, baby, give me time, gimme time, please, a little more time.
Takes a road runner just a little bit uh-longer, dear,
Oh, to make up my mind, I gotta make up my mind.
Oh, my love is like a seed, baby, just needs time to grow,
It's growing stronger day by day,
That's the price that we both got to pay.
I gotta know, know that I'm ready, oh ready to settle down,
'Cause I think too much of your loving, baby,
Yeah, I don't wanna mess your life around!
So if you love me like you tell me that you're doing, dear,
You shouldn't mind paying the price, any price, any price.
Love is supposed to be that special kind of thing,
Make anybody want to sacrifice.
Oh, my love is like a seed, baby, just needs time to grow,
It's growing stronger day by day,
That's the price we both gotta pay.
Trust in me baby, trust in me baby,
Trust in my love, in my heart.
Keep the faith, baby, keep the faith in me, dear, in my arms, in my love.
Don't turn your face away from me, dear, oh you leave a lost girl,
Oh, don't turn your love away, no no no no no no no,
You gotta believe in me, baby, yeah, trust me dear, oh...

Hernando's Hideaway
(Adler-Ross)

I know a dark secluded place
A place where no one knows your face
A glass of wine a fast embrace
It's called...Hernando's Hideaway...OL…
All you see are silhouettes
And all you hear are castanets
And no one cares how late it gets
Not at Hernando's Hideaway...OL…

At the Golden Fingerbowl or any place you go
You can meet your Uncle Max and everyone you know
But if you go to the spot that I am thinking of
You will be free...to gaze at me
And talk of love

Just knock three times and whisper low
That you and I were sent by Joe
Then strike a match and you will know
That you're in Hernando's Hideaway...OL…

ooohh yeah!
move over here a little closer...
mmmmm....
HEY!

Oh just knock three times and whisper low
That you and I were sent by Joe
Then strike a match and you will know
That you're in Hernando's Hideaway.

Sorry I couldn't resist! blackeye
You've Got To Hide Your Love Away -Beatles
...
Hey you got to HIDE your love AWAY
Hey you got to hide your love away
How can I even try, I can never win
Hearing them seeing them in the state I'm in
How could she say to me love will find away
Gather round all you clown, let me hear you say ay ay
Hey you got to hide your love away
Hey you got to hide your love AWAY

Tango

This has me stumped. Except for "Away in a Manger," the only song I can think of with "Away" as the first word is "Away, away with rum, by gum," and its last words are "Salvation Army." That might be an even bigger problem. scratch

Winter Wonderland - Dick Smith, Felix Bernard 1934

Sorry, it's a little cheat but 2nd word in the 2nd stanza. But, it sure beats Salvation Army! blackeye

Tango
...
Gone AWAY is the bluebird,
here to stay is a new bird
He sings a love song,
as we go along,
walking in a winter wonderland.

In the meadow we can build a snowman,
Then pretend that he is Parson Brown
He'll say: Are you married?
we'll say: No man,
But you can do the job
when you're in town.

Later on, we'll conspire,
as we dream by the fire
To face unafraid,
the plans that we've made,
walking in a winter wonderland.

In the meadow we can build a snowman,
and pretend that he's a circus clown
We'll have lots of fun with mister snowman,
until the other kids knock him DOWN.

DOWN in the alley - ELVIS!

Janie, Janie, Janie, Janie, Jane Jane
Janie, Janie, Janie, Janie, Jane Jane
Down in the alley, just you and me
We're going bowlin' till half past three
Just rockin' and reelin', we'll get that feelin'
Down in the alley, oh baby gee

I wake you now and dig you later
'cause you're a fine sweet potato
We'll have a ball and that ain't all
Down in the alley, just you and me

The clock is striking a mournful sound
This time of evening my love comes down
That's when I'm missin' your kind of kissin'
Down in the alley, that's where I'll be

Down in the alley, we sure have fun
We just get started 'bout half past one
So if you're 'round just come on down
Down in the alley and you will see

Janie, Janie, Janie, Janie, Jane Jane
Janie, Janie, Janie, Janie, Jane Jane
Janie, Janie, Janie, Janie, Jane Jane
Janie, Janie, Janie, Janie, Jane


Now, THAT'S gonna be a tough one.

JANE - Jefferson Starship

Jane you say its all over for you and me
Theres a time for love and a time for letting it be baby
Jane youre playin a game
Called hard to get by its real name
Makin believe that you still dont feel the same

Jane youre playin a game you never can win girl
Youre stayin away just so Ill ask you where youve been baby
Like a cat and a mouse (cat and a mouse)
From door to door and house to house
Dont you pretend you dont know what Im talkin about

Were all those nights we spent together (hey hey)
Only because you didnt know better
Oh jane youre playin a game, youre playin a game, playin a game

Jane youre playin a game of hide and go seek
Jane youre playin for fun but I play for keeps (yes I do)
Oh jane thats a game on me
Oh jane thats so plain to seeJane jane jane
(jane jane jane)...

I thought this might HELP, but we're right back where we started...use SEE

I absolutely hate this song, but it's what popped into my head:

Quote:
You Belong To Me

written by Pee Wee King, Redd Stewart & Shilton Price
Recorded by Jo Stafford, Patti Page, Dean Martin, and The Duprees
Recorded by Vonda Shepard on "Songs from Ally McBeal"


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

See the pyramids along the Nile
Watch the sunrise on a tropic isle
Just remember, darling all the while
You belong to me

See the market place in old Algiers
Send me photographs and souvenirs
Just remember when a dream appears
You belong to me

I'll be so lonesome without you
Maybe you'll be lonesome too
And blue

Fly the ocean in a silver plane
See the jungle when it's wet with rain
Just remember 'til you're home again
You belong to me

Maybe you'll be lonesome too
And blue

Fly the ocean in a silver plane
See the jungle when it's wet with rain
Just remember 'til you're home again
You belong to me

Maybe you'll be lonesome too
And blue

Fly the ocean in a silver plane
See the jungle when it's wet with rain
Just remember 'til you're home again
You belong to me

Me And My Shadow - Perry Como

ME and my shadow,
Strolling down the avenue,
Me and my shadow,
Not a soul to tell our troubles to . . .

And when it's twelve o'clock,
We climb the stair,
We never knock,
For nobody's THERE...


BTW Shadow is also my 21 year old cat. So, she really is my shadow!

I'm new here too, but I'll give it a try

Rod Stewart, In the Morning
In the morning
Don't say you love me
Cause I'll only kick you out of the door

I know your name is Rita
Cause your perfum smelling sweeter
Since when I saw you down on the floor
guitar

Won't need to much pursuading
I don't mean to sound degrading
But with a face like that
You got nothing to laugh about

Red lips hair and fingernails
I hear your a mean old jezabel
Lets go up stairs and read my tarot cards

Stay with me
Stay with me
For tonight you better stay with me

Stay with me
Stay with me
For tonight you better stay with me

So in the morning
Please don't say you love me
Cause you know I'll only kick you out the door

Yea I'll pay your cab fare home
You can even use my best colonge
Just don't be here in the morning when I wake up

Stay with me
Stay with me
Cause tonight you better stay with me
Sit down, get up, get down

Stay with me
Stay with me
Cause tonight your going stay with me
Hey, whats your name again
oh no, get down

DOWN on me - Janis Joplin

Well, down on me, oh, down on me,
I said it looks like everybody in this whole round world
They're down on me.

One of these mornings proud and fair
Get on my wings, i'm gonna fly the air.
I said it looks like everybody in this whole round world
Lord, they're down on me.

You know they're down on me, lord, down on me, oh, oh,
And it looks like everybody in this whole round world
Down on me.

Now now now look at your door,
Can't find me 'cause today i'm gone.
And it looks like everybody in this whole round world
Are all down on me.

You know, they're down on me, now down on me, oh, oh!
And it looks like everybody in this whole round world
Is down on me.

Oh now i've never been to heaven, no, but i've been told,
Streets up there are lined with gold.
I said it looks like everybody in this whole round world
Are all down on me.

You know they're down on me, oh, down on me, oh, oh!
And it looks like everybody in this whole round world
Down on me!!

Heart is gone, rain is rain
You know i got a man and he don't never mean
Because it looks like everybody in this whole round world
Is down on me.

You know they're down on me,
Down down down on me baby
Down on me,
I said down!
Oh, oh!
And it looks like everybody in this whole round world
Down on me!!

Bill Withers - Lean on Me Lyrics

...
Lean ON ME, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

Please swallow your pride
If I have things you need to borrow
For no one can fill those of your needs
That you don't let SHOW

Quote:
"Show me how you do that trick
The one that makes me scream" she said
"The one that makes me laugh" she said
And threw her arms around my neck
"Show me how you do it
And I promise you I promise that
I'll run away with you
I'll run away with you"

Spinning on that dizzy edge
I kissed her face and kissed her head
And dreamed of all the different ways I had
To make her glow
"Why are you so far away?" she said
"Why won't you ever know that I'm in love with you
That I'm in love with you"

You
Soft and only
You
Lost and lonely
You
Strange as angels
Dancing in the deepest oceans
Twisting in the water
You're just like a dream

Daylight licked me into shape
I must have been asleep for days
And moving lips to breathe her name
I opened up my eyes
And found myself alone alone
Alone above a raging sea
That stole the only girl I loved
And drowned her deep inside of me

You
Soft and only
You
Lost and lonely
You
Just like heaven

Cheek To Cheek - IRVING BERLIN

HEAVEN, I'm in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek
Heaven, I'm in heaven
And the cares that hung around me through the week
Seem to vanish like a gambler's lucky streak
When we're out together dancing (swinging) cheek to cheek
Oh I love to climb a mountain
And reach the highest peak
But it doesn't thrill (boot) me half as much
As dancing cheek to CHEEK

wave Tango

You people who know about the rules to this game--what do you do when nobody can think of a song for the word? I think we're at that point here.

Does somebody start with a whole new song then?

How 'bout if we backup to DANCING ?

DANCING In The Dark - Bruce Springsteen

I get up in the evening
and I ain't got nothing to say
I come home in the morning
I go to bed feeling the same way
I ain't nothing but tired
Man I'm just tired and bored with myself
Hey there baby, I could use just a little help

You can't start a fire
You can't start a fire without a spark
This gun's for hire
even if we're just dancing in the dark

Message keeps getting clearer
radio's on and I'm moving 'round the place
I check my look in the mirror
I wanna change my clothes, my hair, my face
Man I ain't getting nowhere
I'm just living in a dump like this
There's something happening somewhere
baby I just know that there is

You can't start a fire
you can't start a fire without a spark
This gun's for hire
even if we're just dancing in the dark

You sit around getting older
there's a joke here somewhere and it's on me
I'll shake this world off my shoulders
come on baby this laugh's on me

Stay on the streets of this town
and they'll be carving you up alright
They say you gotta stay hungry
hey baby I'm just about starving tonight
I'm dying for some action
I'm sick of sitting 'round here trying to write this book
I need a love reaction
come on now baby gimme just one look

You can't start a fire sitting 'round crying over a broken heart
This gun's for hire
Even if we're just dancing in the dark
You can't start a fire worrying about your little world falling apart
This gun's for hire
Even if we're just dancing in the dark
Even if we're just dancing in the dark
Even if we're just dancing in the dark
Even if we're just dancing in the dark
Hey baby

Quote:
Eurythmics, "It's All Right (Baby's Coming Back)"

It's all right - baby's coming back

And I don't really care where he's been.
It's all right - baby's coming back

And I won't turn him around this time
no
no
no.

I'll be - your cliff
you can fall down from me

I'll be - your ledge
you can lean upon me

I'll be - your bridge
your flowering tree

You can still depend on me.
And I'll be - the ticking of your clock

And I'll be - the numbers on your watch

And I'll be - your hands to stop the time

I'll even be your danger sign.

It's all right - baby's coming back
. . .

And I'll be - your grace
your dignity

And I'll be - your night
your destiny

And I'll be - your comfort and your ease

I will be your storm at seas.
And I'll be - your sharp intake of breath

And I'll be - your work
I'll take no rest.
And when the world falls to decline
I'll be yours and you'll be mine.
It's all right - baby's coming back

And I don't really care where he's been.

I'll be - your cliff
you can fall down from me
. ..
It's all right - baby's coming back

And I won't turn him around this time.

It's all right - baby's coming back
. . .
It's all right - baby's coming back. . .

Nobody can think of a song starting with back?

I might have to come up with one if nobody else can.
I happen to have one in mind.

Well, OK. I'm not sure where Tango wandered off to, and evidently nobody is coming up with any song lyrics starting with "back." So I'll take another turn.

Quote:
Back in the High Life Again - Steve Winwood

It used to seem to me
That my life ran on too fast
And I had to take it slowly
Just to make the good parts last
But when you're born to run
It's so hard to just slow down
So don't be surprised to see me
Back in that bright part of town

I'll be back in the high life again
All the doors I closed one time will open up again
I'll be back in the high life again
All the eyes that watched me once will smile and take me in
And I'll drink and dance with one hand free
Let the world back into me
And on I'll be a sight to see
Back in the high life again

You used to be the best
To make life be life to me
And I hope that you're still out there
And you're like you used to be
We'll have ourselves a time
And we'll dance 'til the morning sun
And we'll let the good times come in
And we won't stop 'til we're done

We'll be back in the high life again
All the doors I closed one time will open up again
We'll be back in the high life again
All the eyes that watched us once will smile and take us in
And we'll drink and dance with one hand free
And have the world so easily
And oh we'll be a sight to see
Back in the high life again

Love Lenny Kravitz.

Title : Again


I've been searching for you
I heard a cry within my soul
I've never had a yearning quite like this before
Know that you are walking right through my door

All of my life
Where have you been
I wonder if I'll ever see you again
And if that day comes
I know we could win
I wonder if I'll ever see you again

A sacred gift of heaven
For better worse, wherever
And I would never let somebody break you down
Until you cried, never

All of my life
Where have you been
I wonder if I'll ever see you again
And if that day comes
I know we could win
I wonder if I'll ever see you again

At every time I've always known
That you where there, upon your throne
A lonely queen without her king
I longed for you, my love forever

All of my life
Where have you been
I wonder if I'll ever see you again
And if that day comes
I know we could win
I wonder if I'll ever see you again

All of my life
Where have you been
I wonder if I'll ever see you again
And if that day comes
I know we could win
I wonder if I'll ever see you again

All of my life
Where have you been
I wonder if I'll ever see you again
And if that day comes
I know we could win
I wonder if I'll ever see you again

I wonder if I'll ever see you again
I wonder if I'll ever see you again
I wonder if I'll ever see you again
I wonder if I'll ever see you again

I wonder if I'll ever see you again
I wonder if I'll ever see you again
I wonder if I'll ever see you again


Left it where it started, oops!

Tango is here! cheers bounce

Again Tonight - John Cougar Mellencamp

Run in circles again tonight
Hump the moon again tonight
Gonna wear my dancin' shoes out tonight
Gonna have myself a big time again tonight

CHORUS
Again tonight
Again tonight
Again tonight


Girl's got lightning
Underneath her skirt
Boys try to touch it
For whatever it's worth
In the morning
She's just gonna be hurt
She wonders is it worth it again tonight

Welcome back, Tango!

Quote:
"Tonight's The Night" - Neil Young

Tonight's the night,
tonight's the night
Tonight's the night,
tonight's the night
Tonight's the night,
tonight's the night
Tonight's the night,
tonight's the night.

Bruce Berry was a working man
He used to load that Econoline van.
A sparkle was in his eye
But his life was in his hands.

Well, late at night
when the people were gone
He used to pick up my guitar
And sing a song in a shaky voice
That was real as the day was long.

Tonight's the night, yes it is,
tonight's the night
Tonight's the night, yes it is,
tonight's the night.

Early in the mornin'
at the break of day
He used to sleep
until the afternoon.
If you never heard him sing
I guess you won't too soon.

'Cause people let me tell you
It sent a chill
up and down my spine
When I picked up the telephone
And heard that he'd died
out on the mainline.

Tonight's the night,
tonight's the night
Tonight's the night,
tonight's the night.

Bruce Berry was a working man
He used to load that Econoline van.
Well, early in the morning
at just about the break of day
He used to sleep
until the afternoon.

Tonight's the night, yes it is,
tonight's the night
Tonight's the night,
tonight's the night
Tonight's the night,
tonight's the night
Tonight's the night,
tonight's the night.

Moody Blues - Knights In White Satin

NIGHTS in white satin, never reaching the end
Letters I've written, never meaning to send
Beauty I'd always missed, with these eyes before
Just what the truth is, I can't say anymore
'Cause I love you, yes I love you, oh, how I love you

Gazing at people, some hand in hand
Just what I'm going through, they can't understand
Some try to tell me, thoughts they cannot defend
Just what you want to be you will be in the end
And I love you, yes I love you
Oh, how I love you, oh, how I love you

Nights in white satin, never reaching the end
Letters I've written, never meaning to send
Beauty I've always missed, with these eyes before
Just what the truth is, I can't say ANYMORE

salute Tango

Why don't we key on the last word, being the 1st word first, then the title. Then as a last resort, backup to a word you CAN key off ?

Sounds good to me.

Quote:
I Don't Care Any More (Phil Collins)

Well you can tell evryone Im a down disgrace
Drag my name all over the place.
I dont care anymore.
You can tell evrybody bout the state Im in
You wont catch me crying cos I just cant win.
I dont care anymore I dont care anymore

I dont care what you say
I dont play the same games you play.

cos Ive been talking to the people that you call your friends
And it seems to me theres a means to and end.
They dont care anymore.
And as for me I can sit here and bide my time
I got nothing to lose if I speak my mind.
I dont care anymore I dont care no more

I dont care what you say
We never played by the same rules anyway.

I wont be there anymore
Get out of my way
Let me by
I got better things to do with my time
I dont care anymore I dont care anymore
I dont care anymore I dont care anymore

Well, I dont care now what you say
cos evry day Im feeling fine with myself
And I dont care now what you say
Hey Ill do alright by myself
cos I know.

cos I remember all the times I tried so hard
And you laughed in my face cos you held all the cards.
I dont care anymore.
And I really aint bothered what you think of me
cos all I want of you is just a let me be.
I dont care anymore dyou hear? I dont care no more

I dont care what you say
I never did believe you much anyway.

I wont be there no more
So get out of my way.
Let me by
I got better things to do with my time
I dont care anymore
Dyou hear? I dont care anymore
I dont care no more
You listening? I dont care no more
No more!

You know I dont care no more!

MORE than the greatest love the world has known,
This is the love I give to you alone,
More than the simple words I try to say,
I only live to love you more each day.
More than you'll ever know, my arms long to hold you so,
My life will be in your keeping, waking, sleeping, laughing, weeping,
Longer than always is a long long time, but far beyond forever you're gonna be mine.
I know I've never lived before and my heart is very SURE
