STAND BY ME BEN E KING


WHEN THE NIGHT IS COME

AND THE LAND IS DARK AND THE MOON IS THE ONLY LIGHT WE'LL SEE

NO I WON'T BE AFRAID, NO I WON'T BE AFRAID

JUST AS LONG THAT YOU STAND, STAND BY ME


SO DARLING, DARLING STAND BY ME
OH STAND BY ME, OH STAND, OH STAND BY ME, STAND BY ME
IF THE SKY WE LOOK UPON

SO TUMBLE AND FALL ALL THE MOUNTAINS

SO TREMBLE TO THE SEA
I WON'T CRY NO I WON'T CRY NO I WON'T SNIFF A TEAR

JUST AS LONG THAT YOU STAND, STAND BY ME


WHEN EVER YOU'RE IN TROUBLE WANT YOU STAND, STAND BY ME
OH STAND BY ME, OH STAND, OH STAND BY ME, STAND BY ME

STREETS OF LONDON RALPH MACTELL


HAVE YOU SEEN THE OLD MAN IN THE CLOSED-DOWN MARKET

KICKING UP THE PAPERS WITH HIS WORN OUT SHOES

IN HIS EYES YOU SEE NO PRIDE, HAND HELD LOOSELY BY HIS SIDE

YESTERDAY PAPERS TELLING YESTERDAY NEWS


REFREIN

SO HOW CAN YOU TELL ME YOU’RE LONELY,

AND SAY FOR YOU THAT THE SUN DON’T SHINE

LET ME TAKE YOU BY THE HAND AND LEAD YOU THROUGH THE STREETS OF LONDON

I’LL SHOW YOU SOMETHING TO MAKE YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND
IN THE ALL- NIGHT CAFE AT A QUARTER PAST ELEVEN

SAME OLD MAN SITTING THERE ALL ALONE

LOOKING AT THE WORLD OVER THE RIM OF HIS TEACUP

EACH TEA LASTS AN HOUR AS HE WANDERS HOME ALONE


REFREIN
HAVE YOU SEEN THE OLD GIRL, WHO WALKS THE STREETS OF LONDON

DIRT IN HER HAIR AND HER CLOTHES IN RAGS

SHE’S NO TIME FOR TALKING, SHE JUST KEEPS RIGHT ON WALKING

CARRYING HER HOME IN TWO CARRIER BAGS


REFREIN
HAVE YOU SEEN THE OLD MAN OUTSIDE THE SEAMAN’S MISSION

MEMORY FADING WITH THE MEDAL RIBBONS THAT HE WEARS

IN THIS WINTERCITY THE RAIN CRIES A LITTLE PITHY

FOR ONE MORE FORGOTTEN HERO AND A WORLD THAT DOESN’T CARE



STRONG ENOUGH SHERYL CROW


GOD, I FEEL LIKE HELL TONIGHT, TEARS OF RAGE I CANNOT HIDE

I'D BE THE LAST TO HELP YOU UNDERSTAND

ARE YOU STRONG ENOUGH TO BE MY MAN?
NOTHING'S TRUE AND NOTHING’S RIGHT, SO LET ME BE ALONE TONIGHT

YOU CAN'T CHANGE THE WAY I AM

ARE YOU STRONG ENOUGH TO BE MY MAN?
REFREIN

LIE TO ME, I PROMISE, I'LL BELIEVE

LIE TO ME, BUT PLEASE, DON'T LEAVE
I HAVE A FAITH I CANNOT SHOW, I MAKE THE RULES UP AS I GO

IT'S TRY AND LOVE ME IF YOU CAN

ARE YOU STRONG ENOUGH TO BE MY MAN?
WHEN I'VE SHOWN YOU THAT I JUST DON'T CARE

WHEN I'M THROWING PUNCHES IN THE AIR

WHEN I'M BROKEN DOWN AND CANNOT STAND

ARE YOU STRONG ENOUGH TO BE MY MAN?


REFREIN

SULTANS OF SWING DIRE STRAITS


YOU GET A SHIVER IN THE DARK IT'S RAINING IN THE PARK BUT MEANTIME

SOUTH OF THE RIVER YOU STOP AND YOU HOLD EVERYTHING

A BAND IS BLOWING DIXIE DOUBLE FOUR TIME YOU FEEL ALRIGHT WHEN

YOU HEAR THAT MUSIC RING


YOU STEP INSIDE BUT YOU DON'T SEE TOO MANY FACES

COMING IN OUT OF THE RAIN TO HEAR THE JAZZ GO DOWN

COMPETITION TOO MANY OTHER PLACES

BUT NOT TOO MANY HORNS CAN MAKE THAT SOUND

WAY ON DOWNSOUTH WAY ON DOWNSOUTH LONDON TOWN
YOU CHECK OUT GUITAR GEORGE, HE KNOWS ALL THE CHORDS

MIND HE'S STRICTLY RHYTHM HE DOESN'T WANT TO MAKE IT CRY OR SING

AND AN OLD GUITAR IS ALL HE CAN AFFORD

WHEN HE GETS UP UNDER THE LIGHTS TO PLAY HIS THING


AND HARRY DOESN'T MIND, IF HE DOESN'T MAKE THE SCENE

HE'S GOT A DAYTIME JOB HE'S DOING ALRIGHT

HE CAN PLAY THE HONKY TONK JUST LIKE ANYTHING

SAVING IT UP FOR FRIDAY NIGHT, WITH THE SULTANS

WITH THE SULTANS OF SWING
AND A CROWD OF YOUNG BOYS THEY'RE FOOLING AROUND IN THE CORNER

DRUNK AND DRESSED IN THEIR BEST BROWN BAGGIES AND THEIR PLATFORM SOLES

THEY DON'T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT ANY TRUMPET PLAYING BAND

IT AIN'T WHAT THEY CALL ROCK AND ROLL

WE'RE THE SULTANS AND THE SULTANS PLAYING CREOLE
AND THAN THE MAN HE STEPS RIGHT UP TO THE MICROPHONE

AND SAYS AT LAST JUST AS THE TIME BELL RINGS

GOODNIGHT NOW IT'S TIME TO GO HOME

AND HE MAKE IT FAST WITH ONE MORE THING

WE ARE THE SULTANS, WE ARE THE SULTANS OF SWING

SUMMER OF `69 BRIAN ADAMS


I GOT MY FIRST REAL SIX-STRING, BOUGHT IT AT THE FIVE AND DIME

PLAYED IT TILL MY FINGERS BLED, WAS THE SUMMER OF SIXTY-NINE


ME AND SOME GUYS FROM SCHOOL HAD A BAND AND WE TRIED REAL HARD

JIMMY QUIT AND JODY GOT MARRIED, I SHOULD-A KNOWN WE’D NEVER GET FAR

OH WHEN I LOOK BACK NOW THAT SUMMER SEEMED TO LAST FOREVER

AND IF I HAD THE CHOICE, YEAH I'D ALWAYS WANNA BE THERE

THESE WERE THE BEST DAYS OF MY LIFE
AIN’T NO USE IN COMPLAININ', WHEN YOU GOT A JOB TO DO

SPENT MY EVENIN'S DOWN AT THE DRIVE-IN AND THAT’S WHEN I MET YOU

STANDIN' ON YOUR MAMA’S PORCH, YOU TOLD ME THAT YOU’D WAIT FOREVER

OH, AND WHEN YOU HELD MY HAND, I KNEW THAT IT WAS NOW OR FOREVER

THOSE WERE THE BEST DAYS IN MY LIFE, BACK IN THE SUMMER OF SIXTY-NINE
MAN WE WERE KILLIN' TIME WE WERE YOUNG AND RESTLESS

WE NEEDED TO UNWIND, I GUESS NOTHIN` CAN LAST FOREVER, FOREVER, NO


AND NOW THE TIMES ARE CHANGIN', LOOK AT EVERYTHING THAT’S COME AND GONE

SOMETIMES WHEN I PLAY THAT OLD SIX-STRING, I THINK ABOUT YOU WONDER WHAT WENT WRONG

STANDING ON YOUR MAMA’S PORCH YOU TOLD ME I'D LAST FOREVER

OH AND WHEN YOU HELD MY HAND I KNEW THAT IT WAS NOW OR NEVER

THOSE WERE THE BEST DAYS OF MY LIFE

BACK IN THE SUMMER OF SIXTY-NINE, BACK IN THE SUMMER OF SIXTY-NINE



SUZANNE LEONARD COHEN


SUZANNE TAKES YOU DOWN, TO HER PLACE NEAR THE RIVER

YOU CAN HEAR THE BOATS GO BY, YOU CAN SPEND THE NIGHT BESIDE

AND YOU KNOW THAT SHE’S HALF CRAZY, BUT THAT’S WHY YOU WANT TO BE THERE

AND SHE FEEDS YOU TEA AND ORANGES THAT COME ALL THE WAY FROM CHINA

AND JUST WHEN YOU MEAN TO TELL HER THAT YOU HAVE NO LOVE TO GIVE HER

SHE GETS YOU ON HER WAVE LENGTH AND SHE LETS THE RIVER ANSWER

THAT YOU’VE ALWAYS BEEN HER LOVER
REFREIN

AND YOU WANT TO TRAVEL WITH HER AND YOU WANT TO TRAVEL BLIND

AND YOU KNOW THAT YOU CAN TRUST HER, FOR YOU’VE TOUCHED HER PERFECT BODY

WITH YOUR MIND


AND JESUS WAS A SAILOR, WHEN HE WALKED UPON THE WATER

AND HE SPEND A LONG TIME WATCHING FROM HIS LONELY WOODEN TOWER

AND WHEN HE KNEW FOR CERTAIN, ONLY DROWNING MEN COULD SEE HIM

HE SAID ALL MEN WILL BE SAILORS THEN UNTIL THE SEA SHALL FREE THEM

BUT HE HIMSELF WAS BROKEN, LONG BEFORE THE SKY WOULD OPEN

FORSAKEN ALMOST HUMAN HE SANK BENEATH YOUR WISDOM LIKE A STONE


REFREIN
NOW SUZANNE TAKES YOUR HAND AND SHE LEADS YOU TO THE RIVER

SHE IS WEARING RAGS AND FEATHERS, FROM SALVATION ARMY COUNTERS

AND THE SUN POORS DOWN LIKE HONEY, ON OUR LADY OF THE HARBOUR

AND SHE SHOWS YOU WHERE TO LOOK AMONG THE GARBAGE AND FLOWERS

THERE ARE HEROES IN THE MORNING THEY ARE LEANING OUT FOR LOVE

AND THEY WILL LEAN THAT WAY FOREVER, WHILE SUZANNE HOLDS THE MIRROR


REFREIN
