Lyrics:
She was more like a beauty queen
From a movie scene
I said, “Don’t mind, but what do you mean
I am the one
Who will dance on the floor in the round?”
She said I am the one
Who will dance on the floor in the round

She told me her name was Billie Jean
As she caused a scene
Then every head turned with eyes that dreamed of being the one
Who will dance on the floor in the round

People always told me, “Be careful of what you do.
And don’t go around breaking young girls’ hearts.”
And mother always told me, “A-be careful of who you love,
And be careful of what you do
‘Cause the lie becomes the truth.”

Billie Jean is not my lover
She’s just a girl who claims that I am the one
But the kid is not my son
She says I am the one
But the kid is not my son

For forty days and for forty nights
Law was on her side
But who can stand
When she’s in demand
Her schemes and plans
‘Cause we danced on the floor in the round
So take my strong advice
Just remember to always think twice
(Do think twice, do think twice.)

She told, “My baby, we’d danced ’til three.”
Then she looked at me
Then showed a photo of a baby cry
His eyes looked like mine, oh, no
Do a dance on the floor in the round, baby

A-people always told me, “Be careful of what you do
And don’t go around breaking young girls’ hearts.”
(Don’t break no heart.)
A-but she came and stood right by me
And just the smell of sweet perfume
And this happened much too soon
And she called me to her room

Billie Jean is not my lover
She’s just a girl who claims that I am the one
But the kid is not my son
(No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.)
Billie Jean is not my lover
She’s just a girl who claims that I am the one
But the kid is not my son
She says I am the one
But the kid is not my son

She says I am the one
But the kid is not my son

No, no, no

Billie Jean is not my lover
She’s just a girl who claims that I am the one
(No, there’s not me, baby.)
But the kid is not my son
(No, no, no, no, no, no, no.)
She says I am the one (No, babe.)
But the kid is not my son, no, no, no

She says I am the one
You know what you did
She says he is my son
Breaking my heart, babe
She says I am the one

Billie Jean is not my lover
Billie Jean is not my lover
Billie Jean is not my lover
She is the one
Billie Jean is not my lover
She is the one
Don’t call me Billie Jean
She is the one
Billie Jean is not my lover
She is the one
Billie Jean is not my lover

Lyrics:
Lookin’ back on the track for a little green bag,
Got to find just the kind or I’m losin’ my mind

Out of sight in the night out of sight in the day,
Lookin’ back on the track gonna do it my way.

Out of sight in the night out of sight in the day,
Lookin’ back on the track gonna do it my way.

Lookin’ back

Lookin’ for some happiness
But there is only loneliness to find
Jump to the left, turn to the right
Lookin’ upstairs, lookin’ behind!

Lookin’ for some happiness
But there is only loneliness to find
Jump to the left, turn to the right
Lookin’ upstairs, lookin’ behind, yeah!

Lookin’ back on the track for a little green bag,
Got to find just the kind or I’m losin’ my mind

Out of sight in the night out of sight in the day,
Lookin’ back on the track gonna do it my way.

Lookin’ back on the track for a little little green bag,
Got to find just the kind or I’m losin’ my mind,

Alright.

Lookin’ for some happiness
But there is only loneliness to find
Jump to the left, turn to the right
Lookin’ upstairs, lookin’ behind.

Lookin’ for some happiness
But there is only loneliness to find
Jump to the left, turn to the right
Lookin’ upstairs, lookin’ behind.

Lyrics:
I’ve been down – I’ve been beat
I’ve been so tired-that I could not speak
I’ve been so lost thatt I could not see
I wanted things that were out of reach
then I found you and you helped me through
and ya showed me what to do
And that’s why I’m comin’ back to you…

[Chorus:]
Like a star that guides a ship across the ocean
that’s how your love will take me home back to you
And if I wish upon that star – someday I’ll be where you are
I know that day is coming soon – ya, I’m coming back to you.
You’ve been alone, but ya did not show it
You’ve been in pain, but did not know it
Let me do what I needed to – you were there when I needed you
Mighta let you down, mighta messed you round
but ya never changed your point of view
and that’s why I’m comin’ back to you…

[Repeat Chorus]

I’m coming back to you
I’m coming back to you
I’m coming back to you
That day is coming soon

I’m coming back to you

Sí Do Mhaimeó Í

[Chorus:]
‘Sí do mhaimeo í, ‘sí do mhaimeo í
‘Sí do mhaimeo í cailleach an airgid
‘Sí do mhaimeo í ó Bhail’ Iorrais Mhóir í
‘S chuir-feadh sí cóistí ‘r bhóithre Chois Fharraige’bhFeicfeása ‘n “steam” ‘ga’l siar Tóin Uí Loing’
‘S na rothaí gh’l timpeall siar óna ceathrúnaí
Caithfeadh sí’nstiúir naoi n-uair’ar a cúl
‘S ní choinneodh sí siúl le cailleach an airgid[Chorus]

‘Measann tú ‘bpósfa, ‘measann tú ‘bpósfa
‘Measann tú ‘bpósfa cailleach an airgid?
Tá ‘s a’m nach ‘bpósfa, tá ‘s a’m nach ‘bpósfa
Mar tá sé ró-óg ‘gus dólfadh sé’n t-airgead

[Chorus]

‘S gairid go ‘bpósfa, ‘s gairid go ‘bpósfa
‘S gairid go ‘bpósfa beirt ar an mbaile seo
‘S gairid go ‘bpósfa, ‘s gairid go ‘bpósfa
Séan Shéamais Mhóir agus Máire Ní Chathasaigh
[Repeat]

[Chorus twice]

[English Translation:]

[Chorus:]
She’s your granny, she’s your granny
She’s your granny, the hag with the money
She’s your granny from the town of Iorrais Mór
And she would put coaches on the roads of Cois Farraige

If you’d see the steam boat going past Tóin Uí Loing’
And the wheels turning speedily at her flanks
She’d scatter the store nine times to the rear
But she never keeps pace with the hag with the money

[Chorus]

Do you reckon he’d marry, do you reckon he’d marry
Do you reckon he’d marry the hag with the money?
I know he’ll not marry, I know he’ll not marry
Because he’s too young and he’ll drink the money

[Chorus]

We’ll soon have a wedding, we’ll soon have a wedding
We’ll soon have a wedding by two in the village
We’ll soon have a wedding, we’ll soon have a wedding
Between Séan Séamais Mór and Máire Ní Chathasaigh
[Repeat]

[Chorus twice]

 

You Raise Me Up

When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up: To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up: To more than I can be.

There is no life – no life without its hunger;
Each restless heart beats so imperfectly;
But when you come and I am filled with wonder,
Sometimes, I think I glimpse eternity.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up: To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up: To more than I can be.

You raise me up: To more than I can be.

The Soft Goodbye

Ahhhhhhhh – [repeats/chorus]

When the light begins to fade,
And shadows fall across the sea,
One bright star in the evening sky,
Your love’s light leads me on my way.

There’s a dream that will not sleep,
A burning hope that will not die.
So I must go now with the wind,
And leave you waiting on the tide.

Time to fly, time to touch the sky.
One voice alone – a haunting cry.
One song, one star burning bright,
Let it carry me through darkest night.

Rain comes over the grey hills,
And on the air, a soft goodbye.
Hear the song that I sing to you,
When the time has come to fly.

When I leave and take the wing,
And find the land that fate will bring,
The brightest star in the evening sky,
(Is your love far from me)
Is your love waiting far for me.

(oh) Is your love waiting far from me….
