How does it feel, how does it feel?
To be on your own, with no direction home
A complete unknown, like a rolling stone

London calling to the imitation zone
Forget it, brother, you can go it alone
London calling to the zombies of death
Quit holding out and draw another breath

When you're weary, feeling small,
When tears are in your eyes, I'll dry them all.
I'm on your side, oh, when times get rough,
And friends just can't be found.
Like a bridge over troubled water,
I will lay me down....

Roll me over
In the clover,
Roll me over, lay me down
And do it again.

If your broken heart needs repair
I'm the man to see. I whisper sweet things
You tell all your friends, and they'll come running to me

Maybe I'll settle down
Maybe I'll just leave town
Maybe I'll have some fun
Maybe I'll meet someone
And make him mine
Me, I'll be just

Fine and dandy
Lord it's like a hard candy Christmas
I'm barely getting through tomorrow
But still I won't let
Sorrow bring me way down

In Candy's room there are pictures of her heroes on the wall
But to get to Candy's room you gotta walk the darkness of Candy's hall

Some men hunt for sport,
Others hunt for food,
The only thing I'm hunting for,
Is an outfit that looks good...

To score a ten would be just fine
But I'd rather be dressed to the nines
It's a truth you can't refute
Nothing suits me like a suit

It won't be easy, you'll think it strange
When I try to explain how I feel
That I still need your love after all that I've done
You won't believe me, all you will see is a girl you once knew
Although she's dressed up to the nines
At sixes and sevens with you.

Got to pay your dues if you wanna sing the blues,
And you know it don't come easy.
You don't have to shout or leap about,
You can even play them easy.

Take it easy, take it easy
Don't let the sound of your own
Wheels make you crazy
Come on baby, don't say maybe
I gotta know if your sweet love is
Gonna save me, oh oh oh
Oh we got it easy
We oughta take it easy

Though I know I'll never lose affection,
For people and things that went before,
I know I'll often stop and think about them.
In my life I love you more.

Beauty I'd always missed
With these eyes before
Just what the truth is
I can't say any more

'Cause I love you
Yes I love you
Oh how I love you

Giant steps are what you take
Walking on the moon
I hope my legs don't break
Walking on the moon
We could walk forever
Walking on the moon
We could live together
Walking on, walking on the moon.

Fly me to the moon
Let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On a, Jupiter and Mars
In other words, hold my hand
In other words, baby, kiss me

The first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move in my hand
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was there at my command my love

And love lies bleeding in my hand
Oh it kills me to think of you with another man
I was playing rock and roll and you were just a fan
But my guitar couldn't hold you
So I split the band
Love lies bleeding in my hands

Blame it on the lies that killed us, blame it on the truth that ran us down,
You can blame it all on me, Terry, it don't matter to me now.
When the breakdown came at midnight, there was nothing left to say.
But I hated him, and I hated you, when you went away.

Blame it on the bossa nova
With it's magic spell
Blame it on the bossa nova
That he did so well
Oh it all began with just one little dance
But soon it ended up a big romance
Blame it on the bossa nova
The dance of love

He'll do press-ups and chin-ups
Do the snatch, clean, and jerk
He thinks dynamic tension
Must be hard work
Such strenuous living
I just don't understand
When in just seven days
Oh, baby
I can make you a man

Tranquil as a forest but on fire within
Once you find your center, you are sure to win
You're a spineless, pale, pathetic lot
And you haven't got a clue
Somehow I'll make a man out of you

We didn't start the fire,
It was always burning,
Since the world's been turning.
We didn't start the fire,
No we didn't light it,
But we tried to fight it.

With only one thing in common
They got the fire down below

You say you don't like it, but girl I know you're a liar
Cause when we kiss, ooh, fire

You can't start a fire sitting 'round crying over a broken heart
This gun's for hire
Even if we're just dancing in the dark
You can't start a fire worrying about your little world falling apart
This gun's for hire
Even if we're just dancing in the dark

Operator, well could you help me place this call?
See, the number on the matchbook is old and faded
She's living in L.A. with my best old ex-friend Ray
A guy she said she knew well and sometimes hated

I know you're supposed to be my steering wheel
Not just my spare tire (home)
But Lord I ask you (home)
To be my guiding force and truth (home)
For some strange reason it had to be (home)
He guided me to Tennessee (home)

I was dancin' with my baby to the Tennessee Waltz
When an old friend I just happened to see
I introduced her to my loved one
And while they were dancin'
My friend stole my sweetheart from me

I remember the night I held you so tight
As we danced to the Wiener Schnitzel Waltz
Your lips were like wine (if you'll pardon the simile)
The music was lovely and quite Rudolf Friml-y
I drank wine, you drank chocolate malts
And we both turned quite green
To the strains of the Wiener Schnitzel Waltz

To the song they're playin' on the radio.

But now I try to be amused
But since their wings have got rusted
You know, the angels want to wear my red shoes

The Gunpowder treason and plot;

Why the Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!
