Lyrics:
There’s talk on the street
It sounds so familiar
Great expectations, everybody’s watching you
People you meet
They all seem to know you
Even your old friends treat you like you’re something new

Johnny come lately, the new kid in town
Everybody loves you, so don’t let them down

You look in her eyes
The music begins to play
Hopeless romantics, here we go again
But after awhile
You’re lookin’ the other way
It’s those restless hearts that never mend

Johnny come lately, the new kid in town
Will she still love you when you’re not around?

There’s so many things you should have told her
But night after night you’re willing to hold her
Just hold her
Tears on your shoulder

There’s talk on the street
It’s there to remind you
It doesn’t really matter which side you’re on
You’re walking away
And they’re talking behind you
They will never forget you ’til somebody new comes along

Where you’ve been lately? There’s a new kid in town
Everybody loves him
Don’t they?
Now he’s holding her, and you’re still around

Oh, my, my
There’s a new kid in town
Just another new kid in town

Everybody’s talking ’bout the new kid in town
Everybody’s walking like the new kid in town

There’s a new kid in town
I don’t wanna hear it
There’s a new kid in town
I don’t wanna hear it
There’s a new kid in town
There’s a new kid in town

There’s a new kid in town
(Everybody’s talking)
There’s a new kid in town
(People started walking)
There’s a new kid in town
There’s a new kid in town

Lyrics:
On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night
There she stood in the doorway
I heard the mission bell
And I was thinking to myself
“This could be Heaven or this could be Hell”
Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor
I thought I heard them say

Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)
Such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Any time of year (Any time of year)
You can find it here

Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes bends
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys she calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget

So I called up the Captain
“Please bring me my wine.”
He said, “We haven’t had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine.”
And still those voices are calling from far away
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them say

Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)
Such a lovely face
They livin’ it up at the Hotel California
What a nice surprise (what a nice surprise)
Bring your alibis

Mirrors on the ceiling
The pink champagne on ice
And she said “We are all just prisoners here, of our own device”
And in the master’s chambers
They gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives
But they just can’t kill the beast

Last thing I remember
I was running for the door
I had to find the passage back to the place I was before
“Relax,” said the night man
“We are programmed to receive
You can check-out any time you like
But you can never leave!”

Lyrics:
I turn on the tube and what do I see
A whole lotta people cryin’ “Don’t blame me”
They point their crooked little fingers at everybody else
Spend all their time feelin’ sorry for themselves
Victim of this, victim of that
Your momma’s too thin and your daddy’s too fat

Get over it
Get over it
All this whinin’ and cryin’ and pitchin’ a fit
Get over it, get over it

You say you haven’t been the same since you had your little crash
But you might feel better if I gave you some cash
The more I think about it, Old Billy was right
Let’s kill all the lawyers, kill ’em tonight
You don’t want to work, you want to live like a king
But the big, bad world doesn’t owe you a thing

Get over it
Get over it
If you don’t want to play, then you might as well split
Get over it, Get over it

It’s like going to confession every time I hear you speak
You’re makin’ the most of your losin’ streak
Some call it sick, but I call it weak

You drag it around like a ball and chain
You wallow in the guilt; you wallow in the pain
You wave it like a flag, you wear it like a crown
Got your mind in the gutter, bringin’ everybody down
Bitch about the present and blame it on the past
I’d like to find your inner child and kick its little ass

Get over it
Get over it
All this bitchin’ and moanin’ and pitchin’ a fit
Get over it, get over it

Get over it
Get over it
It’s gotta stop sometime, so why don’t you quit
Get over it, get over it

Tryin

I’m just arriving in the city
and there’s music on my mind
lookin’ for my destination and
my home is far behind
‘Cause it’s a long road ahead
and you can make it in the end
and I’m gonna make it with my friends
And I’m tryin’
It took me sometime to see it
now I’m looking through this world
and it’s gonna take some time before
I get back, help me girl
’cause you can make it if you try
you gotta lay it on the line
and everything will be fine if you try
Sittin’ smokin’ just a thinkin’
is an easy thing to do
We gotta keep on trying for
the feelin’ to come through
and it’s a lonely way to live
you gotta take it, you gotta live
if you mistake it, just try again
and I’m trying, yeah!
Got to keep on trying
Ah, we got to keep on trying
Yeah I’m trying…. [etc.]

 

Peaceful Easy Feeling

I like the way your sparkling earrings lay,
Against your skin, it’s so brown.
And I wanna sleep with you in the desert tonight
With a billion stars all around.

‘Cause I got a peaceful easy feeling,
And I know you won’t let me down
’cause I’m already standing on the ground.

And I found out a long time ago
What a woman can do to your soul.
Oh, but she can’t take you anyway,
You don’t already know how to go.

And I got a peaceful easy feeling,
And I know you won’t let me down
’cause I’m already standing on the ground.

I get this feeling I may know you as a lover and a friend.
But this voice keeps whispering in my other ear,
Tells me I may never see you again.

’cause I get a peaceful easy feeling
And I know you won’t let me down
’cause I’m already standing…
I’m already standing…
Yes, I’m already standing on the ground
Oh, oh

Earlybird

Early in the morning
about the break of day
the earlybird is working
so his life don’t fade away
spends his life denying that
he’s got no time for flying
in the breeze
High up on his own, the eagle flies alone
and he is free
Earlybird is scratching though
the going’s getting tough
time is passing by him and he just
can’t get enough
He’ll tell you all is well when
all is really going wrong
the Earlybird will wake one day
and find his life is gone
You know I like to lay in bed
and sleep out in the sun
Reading books and playing crazy music
just for fun
You know it makes feel so fine
and puts my mind at ease to
know that I don’t harm a soul
in doing what I please
aaahhhh, ahhhh , ahhhhh ahhh…..
Any old day you say,
ain’t gonna fade away
any old day you say,
ain’t gonna fade away

Take The Devil

Open up your eyes
take the devil from your mind
he’s been holding on to you
and you’re so hard to find
the wind outside is cold
restless feeling in my soul
tempting me to get away
but there’s no place a man can go
God, will you lead me where I roam?
Help me not to let my feelings show
No, No You are the one, oh, how could you be
so blind?
the devil prays on runaways
he’s never far behind
the many years I’ve tried
Now have been revealed to me
closer is the love you’ll find
waiting so patiently
God, Will you lead me where I roam?
Help me not to let my feelings show.
NO, NO
Take the devil
Take the Devil
from your mind

Train Leaves Here This Morning

I lost ten points just for being in the right place
at exactly the wrong time
I looked right at the facts there, but I may as well have
been completely blind
So, if you see me walking all alone
Don’t look back, I’m just on my way back home
there’s a train leaves here this morning, and
I don’t know, what I might be on
She signed me to a contract, baby said it would
all be so life long
I looked around then for a reason
when there wasn’t something more to blame it on
But, if time makes a difference while we’re gone
Tell me now, and I won’t be hanging on
There’s a train leaves here this morning
and I don’t know, what I might be on
ooo, ooo, ooo.. etc…
1320 North Columbus was the address
that I wrote down on my sleeve
I don’t know just what she wanted
might have been that it was getting time to leave
and I watched as the smoker passed it on
and I laughed when the joker said, “Lead on.”
cause there’s a train leaves here this morning
and I don’t know, what I might be on
And there’s train leaves here this morning
and I don’t know, what I might be on

Nightingale

I’m hanging on to my peace of mind
I just don’t know
I’m hanging on to those good times, baby
Just want to let them roll
I’m gonna make it to the light and joy
I’ll tell you why
I got a woman who can take me there
the apple of my eye
oh, I just don’t know, no no, no, no
I love her so
Don’t let me see that morning paper
cause I don’t need those dues
it’s just the same old murder movie
but they call it the news
I’ll tell you what would be some story
and what would set me free
Is if the same thing happened to everybody
that just happened to me, oh,
I just don’t know, no, no, no, no
I’ll never let her go
Every time I hear somebody sneakin’
up behind whoa, I turn around
but I still hear that sound
and just when I’m about to lose my mind
Here comes my baby
singing like a nightingale
Coming my way down along that devastation
trail well tell the Lord above
she’s got a brand of love
that cannot fail
I’m hanging on to my peace of mind
that’s no lie
I’m hanging on to my special friend
the apple of my eye
my inspiration, too
she’s got a lead on my heart and
my soul and she knows just what to do
oh, I just don’t know, no ,no, no, no
No, I get so low, and my mind’s about to go
but wait a minute, here comes my baby
singing like a nightingale
coming my way down along that devastation
trail
Well, let the fires burn, let the
floods return
we will prevail
Hanging on to my peace of mind
I just don’t know

Most Of Us Are Sad

Most of us are sad
No one lets it show
I’ve been shadows of myself
How was I to know?
Tell me scarlet sun
what will time allow?
We have brought our children
here Who can save them now?
Oh, Weeping woman try to smile
Like the coming dawn
Most of us are sad it’s true
Still we must go on
Love was here today
Oh the sun was bright
I will sing you faraway
Love is here tonight
Most of us are sad
No one lets it show
I’ve been shadows of myself
How was I to know?
