Look at us
After all these years together
Look at us
After all we've been through
Still leaning on each other
****
If you want to see
How true love should be
Then, just look at us...

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I'd like to do
Is to save every day
'Til eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

The minute you walked in the joint,
I could see you were a man of distinction,
A real big spender,
Good looking, so refined.
Say, wouldn't you like to know
What's going on in my mind?
So, let me get right to the point,
I don't pop my cork for every guy I see.
Hey, big spender, spend,
A little time with, me, me, me!

Now because you wear all those fancy clothes (oh yeah)
And have a big fine car, oh yes you do now
Do you think I can afford to give you my love (oh yeah)
You think you're higher than every star above
Mr. Big Stuff
Who do you think you are
Mr. Big Stuff
You're never gonna get my love

What's the matter with the clothes I'm wearing?
Can't you tell that your tie's too wide?
Maybe I should buy some old tab collars?
Welcome back to the age of jive
Where have you been hidin' out lately, honey?
You can't dress trashy till you spend a lot of money
Everybody's talkin' 'bout the new sound
Funny, but it's still rock and roll to me

Walk right in and sit right down, daddy, let your mind roll on.
You'd better walk right in and stay a little while, daddy, you can't stay too long.
Now everybody's talkin' 'bout a two-way woman,
Do you want to lose your mind?
You'd better walk right in, sit right down, daddy, let your mind roll on!

You gave me something I understand
You gave me loving in the palm of my hand
I can't tell you how I feel, my heart is like a wheel
Let me roll it, let me roll it to you

You didn't leave me anything
That I can understand
Now I'm left with all of this
A room full of your crash

Papa was a rolling stone
Wherever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died, all he left us was alone

And when I die
and when I'm dead, dead and gone,
There'll be one child born and
a world to carry on, to carry on
I'm not scared of dying
and I don't really care
If it's peace you find in dying,
well, then let the time be near

Come back, come back again and again,
I've been here since I can't remember when
Your world just spins whilst mine stands still
Nothing's changed in your gravity grave

To me you're like the setting sun
You rise then you're gone

Come back when you grow up, girl
You're still livin' in a paper-doll world
Livin' ain't easy, lovin's twice as tough
So come back, baby, when you grow up
You look real good like a woman now
Your mind hasn't gotten the message somehow
So if you can't take it when the goin' gets rough
Come back, baby, when you grow up

Hide your head in the sand little girl
Catch you with another man
That's the end, little girl

Yeah, runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
Runnin' down a dream

I felt so good, like anything was possible
Hit cruise control and rubbed my eyes
The last three days the rain was unstoppable
It was always cold, no sunshine

Aint no sunshine when she's gone
It's not warm when she's away
Aint no sunshine when she's gone
And she's always gone too long
Any time she goes away

Back in my younger days, when things were going wrong
I might sulk, I might pout
Now I've learned if I just pitch in and do what's right
Things will always work out
And if we all could spread a little sunshine
All could light a little fire
We all would be a little closer
To our heart's desire

Lord know's we've seen enough troubles already, we've
Had our fill of grey skies
So put down the vinegar, take up the honey jar
You'll catch many more flies
And if we all could spread a little sunshine
All could think before we strike
We all would be a little closer
To the world we'd like

Cause I've seen blue skies,
Through the tears in my eyes,
And I realize, I'm going home.

Together again, again
Gee, it's good to be together again, again
I just can't imagine that you've ever been gone
It's not starting over, it's just going on

Together again, again
Now we're here and there's no need remembering when
'Cause no feeling feels like that feeling
Together again

You never close your eyes anymore when i kiss your lips
And there's no tenderness like before in your fingertips
You're trying hard not to show it
But baby, baby I know it
You lost that lovin 'feelin'
Whoa, that lovin 'feelin'
You lost that lovin 'feelin'
Now it's gone, gone, gone, woh

So please play for me a sad melody
So sad that it makes everybody cry-why-why-why
A real hurtin' song about a love that's gone wrong
Cause I don't want to cry all alone
Hey, won't ya play another somebody done somebody wrong song
And make me feel at home while I miss my baby, while I miss my baby

I ain't never been with a woman long enough, for my boots to get old
We've been together so long now they both need to be sewed
If I ever settle down you'd be my kind
And it's a good time for me to head on down the line

Heard it in a love song
Heard it in a love song
Heard it in a love song
Can't be wrong

Ooh, I bet you're wonderin' how I knew
'Bout your plans to make me blue
With some other guy you knew before
Between the two of us guys
You know I loved you more
It took me by surprise I must say
When I found out yesterday
Don'tcha know that I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Oh, I heard it through the grapevine
Oh, I'm just about to lose my mind

I can see very well
There's a boat on the reef with a broken back
And I can see it very well
There's a joke and I know it very well
It's one of those that I told you long ago
Take my word I'm a madman don't you know

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sunshiny day.

They say the neon lights are bright
On Broadway
They say there's always magic in the air
But when you're walkin' down that street
And you ain't have enough to eat
The glitter rubs right off and you're nowhere

You know those lights were bright on Broadway
That was so many years ago
Before we all lived here in Florida
Before the Mafia took over Mexico
There are not many who remember
They say a handful still survive
To tell the world about
The way the lights went out
And keep the memory alive

We are the young ones crying out
Full of anger full of doubt
And we're breaking all of the rules
Never choosing to be fools
We are tired of being used
We are constantly excused
In the battle and the heat
In the shadow of retreat

They don't give a damn about any trumpet playin' band
It ain't what they call Rock and Roll
And the Sultans
Yeah, the Sultans, they play Creole
Creole

And then 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"
Then he makes it fast with one more thing
"We are the Sultans
We are the Sultans of Swing"

I got guitar, basses, amplifiers and drums
Accordions and mandolins and things that sometimes hum
Cymbals and harmonicas, capos by the score
And lots of things in boxes laying all around the floor

Hear the sound of music drifting in the aisles
Elevator Prozac stretching on for miles
The music of the future will not entertain
It's only meant to repress and neutralize your brain

Dawn is a feeling
A beautiful ceiling
The smell of grass
Just makes you pass
Into a dream

You're here today
No future fears
This day will last
A thousand years
If you want it to

Pretty as a midsummer's morn
They call her Dawn

Dawn, go away, I'm no good for you
Oh, Dawn, stay with him, he'll be good to you
