Sing A Simple Song

Sing a simple song!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm talkin' talkin' talkin' talkin' talkin' in my sleep

Time is passin', I grow older, things are happening fast
All I have to hold onto is a simple song at last

I'm livin' livin' livin' life with all its ups and downs
I'm givin' givin' givin' love and smilin' at the frowns
You're in trouble when you find it's hard for you to smile
A simple song might make it better for a little while

Say It Yaaaaa, ya-ya yaa ya

Dream On
From Greatest Hits by Aerosmith
(Arlo Guthrie)

Every time that I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face gettiní clearer
The past is gone
It went by, like dusk to dawn
Isn't that the way
Everybody's got their dues in life to pay

Yeah, I know every body knows
Where it comes and where it goes
I know everybody's sin
You got to lose to know how to win

Half my life is in books' written pages
Lived and learned from fools and from sages
You know it's true
All the things come back to you

Sing with me, sing for the years
Sing for the laugh, sing for the tears
Sing with me, if it's just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good lord will take you away, yeah

Sing with me, sing for the years
Sing for the laugh, singing for the tears
Sing with me, if it's just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away

Dream On Dream On Dream On
Dream until the dream come true

Dream On Dream On Dream On
Dream until the dream comes true

Dream On Dream On Dream On
Dream On Dream On
Dream On Dream On

Sing with me, sing for the years
Singing for the laugh, singing for the tears
Sing with me, if it's just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away
Sing with me, sing for the years
Singing for the laugh, singing for the tears
Sing with me, if it's just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away...

Thunder Road
(Bruce Springsteen)

From Born To Run by Bruce Springsteen

The screen door slams, Mary's dress waves
Like a vision she dances across the porch as the radio plays
Roy Orbison singing for the lonely
Hey, that's me and I want you only
Don't turn me home again, I just can't face myself alone again
Don't run back inside, darling, you know just what I'm here for
So you're scared and you're thinking that maybe we ain't that young anymore
Show a little faith, there's magic in the night
You ain't a beauty but, hey, you're alright
Oh, and that's alright with me

You can hide 'neath your covers and cover your pain
Make crosses from your lovers, throw roses in the rain
Waste your summer praying in vain
For a savior to rise from these streets
Well now, Iím no hero, that's understood
All the redemption I can offer, girl, is beneath this dirty hood
Oh oh there go Yeah baby itíll all be to undo now
Except to roll down the window and let the wind blow back your hair
Baby, the night's busting open, these two lanes will take us anywhere
We got one last chance to make it real
To trade in these wings on some wheels
Climb in back, heaven's waiting on down the tracks

Oh oh, come take my hand
We're riding out tonight to case the promised land
Oh oh oh oh, Thunder Road
Oh, Thunder Road, oh, Thunder Road
Lying out there like a killer in the sun
Hey, I know it's late, we can make it if we run
Oh oh oh oh, Thunder Road
Sit tight, take hold, Thunder Road

Well, I got this guitar and I learned how to make it talk
And my car's out back if you're ready to take that long walk
From your front porch to my front seat
The door's open but the ride ain't free
And I know you're lonely for words that I have spoken
But tonight we'll be free, all the promises'll be broken

They run through the eyes of all the boys you sent away
They haunt this dusty beach road in the skeleton frames of burned-out Chevrolets
They scream your name at night in the street
Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
And in the lonely cool before dawn
You hear their engines roaring on
But when you get to the porch, they're gone on the wind
So Mary, climb in
It's a town full of losers, I'm pulling out of here to win

Starman
From Ziggy Stardust by David Bowie
(David Robert Jones)

La, la, la
La, la, la

Didn't know what time it was, the lights were low oh oh
I leaned back on my radio oh oh
Some cat was layin' down some rock'n'roll lotta soul,
Then the loud sound did seem to fade ade ade
Came back like a slow voice on a wave of phase ah ah
That weren't no D.J. that was hazy cosmic jive

There's a starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and see us
But he thinks he'd blow our minds
There's a starman waiting in the sky
He told us not to blow it
'Cause he knows it's all worthwhile
He told me:
Let the children use it
Let the children lose it
Let all the children boogie

I had to phone someone so I picked on you ouu ouu
Hey, that's far out so you heard him too! oo ooo
Switch on the TV we may pick him up on channel two
Look out your window I can see his light ight ight
If we can sparkle he may land tonight ight ight
Don't tell your poppa or he'll get us locked up in fright

There's a starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and see us
But he thinks he'd blow our minds
There's a starman waiting in the sky
He told us not to blow it
'Cause he knows it's all worthwhile
He told me:
Let the children lose it
Let the children use it
Let all the children boogie

Waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us
But he knows he'd blow our minds
There's a starman waiting in the sky
He told us not to blow it
'Cause he knows it's all worthwhile
He told me:
Let the children use it
Let the children lose it
Let all the children boogie, yeah

La, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la (repeats and fades)

Walk This Way
From Greatest Hits by Aerosmith
(Steven Tyler and Joe Perry)

Backstreet lover always hidin' 'neath the covers
Till I talked to your daddy, he say
He said "you ain't seen nothin' till you're down on a muffin
Then you're sure to be a-changin' your ways"
I met a cheerleader, was a real young bleeder
Oh, the times I could reminisce
'Cause the best things of lovin' with her sister and her cousin
Only started with a little kiss, like this!

Well, seesaw swingin' with the boys in the school
And your feet flyin' up in the air
Singin' "hey diddle diddle"
With your kitty in the middle of the swing
Like you didn't care
So I took a big chance at the high school dance
With a missy who was ready to play
Wasn't me she was foolin'
'Cause she knew what she was doin'
When she told me how to walk this way
When she told me to

Walk this way, talk this way
Walk this way, jump this way
Just gimme a kiss, like this!

Well, schoolgirl sweetie with a classy kinda lady
Little skirt's climbin' way up the knee
There was three young ladies in the school gym locker
When I noticed they was lookin' at me
I was a high school loser, never made it with a lady
Till the boys told me somethin' I missed
Then my next door neighbor with a daughter had a favor
So I gave her just a little kiss, like this!

Seesaw swingin' with the boys in the school
And your feet flyin' up in the air
Singin' "hey diddle diddle"
With your kitty in the middle of the swing
Like you didn't care
So I took a big chance at the high school dance
With a missy who was ready to play
Wasn't me she was foolin'
'Cause she knew what she was doin'
When she told me how to walk this way, I told her

Walk this way, talk this way
Walk this way, talk this way
Walk this way, talk this way
Walk this way, talk this way
Just gimme a kiss, like this!

Ziggy Stardust
From From Ziggy Stardust by David Bowie
(David Bowie)

Ziggy played guitar, jamming good with Weird and Gilly,
And the spiders from Mars. He played it left hand
But made it too far
Became the special man, then they were Ziggy's band

Ziggy really sang, screwed up eyes and screwed down hairdo
Like some cat from Japan, he could lick 'em by smiling
He could leave 'em to hang
'Came on so loaded man, he was Ziggyís fan.

So where were the spiders, while the fly tried to break our balls
With just the beer light to guide us,
So he bitched about his fans and he should have crush his sweet hands?

Ziggy played for time, jiving us that we were voodoo
The kid was just crass, he was the nazz
With God given a-ass
He took it all too far but boy could he play guitar

Making love with his ego Ziggy sucked up into his mind
Like a leper messiah
When the kids had killed the man I had to break up the band.

Oh yeah
Ooooooo
Ziggy playyyyed guitaarrrrrr

Faithless Love
From Heart Like a Wheel by Linda Ronstadt
(John David Souther)

Faithless love like a river flows;
Raindrops falling on a broken rose
Down in some valley
Where nobody goes,
And the night blows in
Like the cold, dark wind.
Faithless love, like a river flows.

Faithless love, where did I go wrong?
Was it telling stories in a heartbreak song,
Where nobody's right, nobody was wrong?
Faithless love will find you
And the misery entwine you.
Faithless love, where did I go wrong?

Well, I guess I'm standing in the hall of broken dreams;
That's the way it sometimes goes.
Never a new love never turns out like it should;
It's the feeling comes and goes.

Faithless love like a river flows;
Like raindrops falling on a broken rose,
Down in some valley where nobody goes.
Faithless love has found me,
Thrown its chilly arms around me.
Faithless love, like a river flows.

Sweet Emotion
From Greatest Hits by Aerosmith
(Steven Tyler and Tom Hamilton)

Sweet Emotion
Sweet Emotion

Well, you talk about things that nobody cares
You're wearing out things that nobody wears
Well, you're calling my name but I gotta make clear
I can't say baby where I'll be in a year

When some Sweat Hog mama with a face like a gent
Said my get up and go musta got up and went
Well I got good news, she's a real good liar
'Cause the backstage boogie set your pants on fire

Sweet Emotion
Sweet Emotion

Well I pulled into town in a police car
Your daddy said I took it just a little too far
You're telling me things but your girlfriend lied
You can't catch me 'cause the rabbit done died
Yes it did

Well, I'll take you backstage, you can drink from my glass
I'll talk about somethin' you can sure understand
'Cause a month on the road and I'll be eaten from your hand

Rock and Roll Suicide
From From Ziggy Stardust by David Bowie
(David Bowie)

Time takes a cigarette, puts it in your mouth
You pull on your finger, then another finger, then your cigarette
The wall-to-wall is calling, it lingers, then you forget
oh oh oh oh

You're a rock 'n' roll suicide
You're too old to lose it, too young to choose it
And the clock waits so patiently on your song
You walk past the cafe but you don't eat when you've lived this long
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
You're a rock 'n' roll suicide

Chev brakes are snarling as you stumble across the road
But the day breaks instead so you hurry, you hurry, you hurry on home
Don't let the sun blast your shadow
Don't let the milk floats ride your mind
So natural-religiously very very unkind

Oh no love! Youíre not alone
Youíre watching yourself but youíre too unfair
You got your head all tangled up but if I could only
Make you care
Oh no love! Youíre not alone
No matter what a fool youíve been
No matter when or where youíve seen
All the knives that lacerate your brain
I've had my share, so I'll help you with the pain

Cuz you're not alone, no, no, no, no youíre not alone
Just let your turn on with me, you're not alone,
Let's turn on and not be alone, oh,
Feel your hands because youíre wonderful, youíre wonderful Gimme your hands cuz
You're wonderful, just gimme your hands

You're No Good
From Heart Like a Wheel by Linda Ronstadt
(Clint Ballard, Jr.)

Feeling better, now that we're through
Feeling better, 'cause I'm over you
I've learned my lesson, left to scar
Now I see how you really are

You're no good, you're no good, you're no good
Baby, you're no good, I'm gonna say it again
You're no good, you're no good, you're no good
Baby, you're no good

I broke a heart that's gentle and true
Well, I broke a heart over someone like you
I'll beg his forgiveness on bended knee
I wouldn't blame him if he said to me

You're no good, you're no good, you're no good
Baby, you're no good, I'm gonna say it again
You're no good, you're no good, you're no good
Baby, you're no good

I'm telling you now baby and I'm going my way
Forget about you baby 'cause I'm leaving to stay

You're no good, you're no good, you're no good
Baby, you're no good, I'm gonna say it again
You're no good, you're no good, you're no good
Baby, you're no good

Oh, oh, oh, You're no good, you're no good, you're no good
Baby, you're no good

She Said, She Said
From Revolver by Beatles
(John Lennon)

She said "I know what it's like to be dead.
I know what it is to be sad"
And she's making me feel like I've never been born.

I said "Who put all those things in your head?
Things that make me feel that I'm mad
And you're making me feel like I've never been born."

She said "you don't understand what I said"
I said "No, no, no, you're wrong"
When I was a boy, everything was right
Everything was right

I said "Even though you know what you know
I know that I'm ready to leave
'Cause sheís making me feel like I've never been born."

She said "you don't understand what I said"
I said "No, no, no, you're wrong"
When I was a boy, everything was right
Everything was right

I said "Even though you know what you know
I know that I'm ready to leave
'Cause you're making me feel like I've never been born."

She said,
She said
"I know what it's like to be dead"
"I know what it's like to be dead"

I know what it is to be sad...
I know what it is to be sad...
I know what it's like to be dead
I know what it's like to be dead
I know what Ö

Remember (Walking in the Sand)
From Greatest Hits by Aerosmith
(Shadow Morton)

Seems like the other day
My baby went away
She went away, 'cross the sea

It's been two years ago
Since I let my baby go
And then this letter came for me

It said that we was through
She found somebody new
Oh, lemme think, lemme think
What shall I do

Oh, no
Oh, no
Oh, no no no
(Remember), walking in the sand
(Remember),, walking hand in hand
(Remember), the night was so exciting
(Remember), her smile was so inviting
(Remember), then she touched my cheek
(Remember), with her fingertips
Remember, softly
Softly we met with a kiss

The girl that I once knew
Oh she said, she'd been Ö..
Oh, whatever happened to
That night I gave it to you
Oh what will you do with it now
Oh...

Oh, no
Oh, no
Oh, no no no no
(Remember), walking in the sand
(Remember), walking hand in hand
(Remember), the night was so exciting
(Remember), your smile was so inviting
(Remember), then she touched my cheek
(Remember), cross and cross her face
(Remember),, remember softly with a kiss

Whatever happened to
That girl that I once knew
That girl that said, she'd be true
Whatever happened to
That night That night I gave it to you
Tell me now what, what shall I do I do
Oh Ö.

Tell me what, tell me what what shall I do
The night I gave it to you
Youíre coming back to me
You were not true

What shall I do
Oh, Oh

Walking hand in hand
All you go home, go home

What would you do with it now
