BLOWIN' IN THE WIND

How many times must a man walk down

Before you can call him a man ?

How many times must a white dove sail

Before she can sleep in the sand ?

How many times must the cannonballs fly

Before they are forever banned ?

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind

The answer is blowin' in the wind

How many times must a manlook up

Before he can see the sky ?

How many ears must one man have

Before he can hear people cry ?

How many deaths will it take him, to know

That too many people have died ?

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind

The answer is blowin' in the wind

How many years can a mountain exist

Before it is washed to the sea ?

How many years can some people exist

Before they're allowed to be free ?

How many times can a man turn his head

Pretending he just doesn't see ?

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind

The answer is blowin' in the wind

CONGRATULATIONS

Congratulations and celebrations

When I tell everyone that you're in love with me

Congratulations and jubilations

I want the world to know that I'm happy as can be

Who would believe that I could be happy and contented

I used to think that happiness hadn't been invented

But that was in the bad old days before I met you

Before I let you walk into my heart

REFREIN :

I was afraid that maybe you thought you were above me

That I was only foolin' myself to think you'd love me

But then tonight you said you couldn't live without me

That round about me you wanted to stay .....

REFREIN :

EL CONDOR PASA

I'd rather be a sparrow than a snail

Yes I would. If I could I surely would

I'd rather be a hammer than a nail

Yes I would. If I could I surely would

Away, I'd rather sail away

Like a swan that 's here and gone

A man gets tied up to the ground

He gives the world it 's saddest sound, it 's saddest sound

I'd rather be a forest than a street

Yes I would. If I could I surely would

I'd rather feel thwe earth beneath my feet

Yes I would. If I could I surely would

DAYDREAM

What a day for a daydream

What a day for a daydreamin' boy ...

And I'm lost in my daydream

Dreamin' 'bout a bundle of joy

And even if time ain't really on my side

It's one of those days for takin' a walk outside

I'm blowin' the day to take a walk in the sun

And fall on my face on somebody's new moved lawn

I've been havin' a sweet dream

I've been dreamin' since I woke up today

It's starring me in my sweet dream

Cause she's the one that makes me feel this way

And even if time is passing me by a lot

I couldn't care less about the dues you say I've got

Tomorrow I'll pay the dues for dropping my load

A pie in the face for beeing a sleepy bull toad

I'LL BE THERE

You and I must make a pact

We must bring salvation back

Where there is love : I'll be there

I'll reach out my hand to you

I have faith in all you do

Just call my name and I'll be there
I'll be there to comfort you

I'll build my world of dreams around you

I'm so glad that I have found you

I'll be there with a love that's strong

I'll be your strength

You know, I'll keep holding on


Let me fill your heart with joy and laughter

Togetherness, well it's so long after

Just call my name, and I'll be there

I'll be there to protect you

With an unselfish love that will respect you

Just call my name and I'll be there


REFREIN :
If you should ever find someone new

I know she better be good to you

'Cause if she doesn't : I'll be there

Don't you know, baby :

I'll be there, I'll be there,

Just call my name and I'll be there.



LOLA

I met her in a club down in old Soho

Where you drink champagne and it tastes just like cherry cola

C.o.l.a. , cola

She walked up to me and she asked me to dance

I asked her name and in a dark brown voice she said "Lola"

L.o.l.a. , lola
Well, I'm not the worlds most physical guy

But when she squeezed me tight she almost broke my spine,

Oh, my Lola, la-la , la-la , Lola

Well, I'm not dumb but I can't understand

Why she walked like a woman but talked like a man

Oh, my Lola, la-la , la-la , Lola, la-la , la-la , Lola


Well, we drank champagne and we danced all night

Under the electric candle light

She picked me up and sat me on her knee

And said :"dear boy, won't you come home with me ?"

Well, I'm not the worlds most passionate guy

But when I looked in her eyes I almost fell for my

Lola, la-la , la-la , Lola, la-la , la-la , Lola
I pushed her away ... I walked to the door ...

I fell on the floor ... I got down on my knees

Then I looked at her and she at me;

Well, that's the way I want it to stay

And I always want to be it that way for my

Lola, la-la , la-la , Lola, la-la , la-la , Lola


Girls will be boys and boys will be girls

It's a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world

Except for Lola, la-la , la-la , Lola

Well, I left home just a week before

And I never kissed a woman before

But Lola smiled and took me by the hand

And said :"Boy, I'm gonna make you a man"

But I know what I am, and I'm glad I'm a man

And so is Lola, la-la , la-la , Lola, la-la , la-la , Lola


MASSACHUSSETS

Fell I'm going back to Massachussets

Something's telling me I must go home

And the lights all went out in Massachussets

The day I left her, standing on her own
Tried to hitch a ride to San Francisco

Gotta do the things I wanna do

And the lights all went out in Massachussets

They brought me back to see my way with you.


Talk about the life in Massachussets

Speak about the people I have seen

And the lights all went out in Massachussets

And Massachussets is one place I have seen



MASTERS OF WAR

Come you masters of war, you that build all the guns

You that build the death-planes, you that build all the bombs

You that hide behind walls, you that hide behind desks

I just want you to know I can see through your masks
You that never done nothing but build to destroy

You play with my world like it's your little toy

You put a gun in my hand and you hide from my eyes

And then and run farther when the fast bullets fly


Like Judas of old you lie and deceive

A world war can be won, you want me to believe

But I see through your eyes and I see through your brain

Like I see through the water that runs down my drain.


You fasten the triggers for the others to fire

Then you set back and watch when the death count gets higher

You hide in your mansion as young peoples blood

Flows out of their bodies and is buried in the mud.


You've thrown the worst fear that an ever be hurled

Fear to bring children into the world

For threatening my baby, unborn and unnamed,

you ain't worth the blood that runs down your veins.


How much do I know to talk out of turn

You may say that I'm young, you may say I'm unlearned

But there's one thing I know though I'm younger than you :

Even Jesus would never forgive what you do


Let me ask you one question : Is your money that good ?

Will it buy you forgiveness ? Do you think that it could ?

For threatening my baby, unborn and unnamed,

You ain't worth the blood that runs down your veins.


And I hope that you die, and that your death will come soon

I will follow your cascet on a pale afternoon

And I'll watch 'till you're lowered down to your death bed

And I'll stand over your grave 'till I'm sure that you're dead



RAINDROPS

Raindrops keep falling on my head

And just like the guy who' se feet are too big for his bed,

Nothing seems to fit ......these

Raindrops keep falling in my head, they keep falling

So I just did me some talking to the sun

And I said I didn't like the way he got things done

Sleeping on the job ...... those

Raindrops keep falling in my head, they keep falling

But there's one thing I know

The blues they send to meet me won't defeat me

It won't be long 'till happiness steps up to greet me

Raindrops keep falling on my head

But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turning red,

Crying ‘s not for me, 'cause

I'll never gonna stop the rain by complaining

Because I'm free ..... nothing's worrying me

THE ROSE

Some say love, it is a river that drowns the tender reed.
Some say love, it is a razor that leaves your soul to bleed.
Some say love, it is a hunger, an endless aching need.
I say love, it is a flower, and you its only seed
.

It's the heart afraid of breaking that never learns to dance.
It's the dream afraid of waking that never takes the chance.
It's the one who won't be taken, who cannot seem to give,
and the soul afraid of dyin' that never learns to live.

When the night has been too lonely and the road has been to long,


and you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong,
just remember in the winter far beneath the bitter snows
lies the seed that with the sun's love in the spring becomes the rose.


ROSETTA

Well, my little girl is a sweet little girl

But she does things make your eyebrows curl

You let her loose on a Saturday night

And you know it's gonna end in a fight
Rosetta drinks her whiskey neat

She gets in a fight and she might get beat

So I go 'round on a Saturday night

And ask her if she feels all right


Rosetta, are you better ? Are you well, well, well ?

Rosetta, are you better ? Are you well, well, well ?

well, well, well ? well, well, well ? well, well, well ?
When Friday comes she's fine again

So we go to a club where we got some friends

Knocked on the door, but we couldn't come in

Cause the boss don't want no fuss


So we went up down and drank around

And Rosie ended on the ground

So I took her home and put her to bed

And you can guess just what I said :


REFREIN :

SAILING

I am sailing, I am, sailing home again, across the sea

I am sailing stormy waters to be near you, to be free
I am flying, I am flying like a bird across the sky

I am flying, passing high clouds to be near you, to be free


Can you hear me, can you hear me through the dark night, far away ?

I am dying, forever trying To be with you, who can say ?


We are sailing, we are sailing home again, across the sea

We are sailing stormy waters to be near you, to be free
