Whenever I see your smiling face
I have to smile myself
Because I love you
And when you give me that pretty little pout
It turns me inside out
There's something about you, baby
I don't know

If you want to see,
How true love should be,
Then look at us...

Look at me,
I'm as helpless as a kitten up a tree;
And I feel like I'm clingin' to a cloud,
I can' t understand
I get misty, just holding your hand.

I've look at clouds from both sides now,
From up and down, and still somehow,
It's clouds illusions I recall,
I really don't know clouds at all...

Sunset doesn't last all evening
A mind can blow those clouds away
After all this, my love is up
And must be leaving
But it's not always going
To be this grey
All things must pass
All things must pass away

And papa said to mama, as he passed around the blackeyed peas
Well, Billy Joe never had a lick of sense; pass the biscuits, please
There's five more acres in the lower forty I've got to plow
And mama said it was shame about Billy Joe, anyhow
Seems like nothin' ever comes to no good up on Choctaw Ridge
And now Billy Joe MacAllister's jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge

Come back and make me your wife

You made me cry, you told me lies
But I can't stand to say goodbye
Mama I'm coming home

I could be right, I could be wrong
It hurts so bad, it's been so long
Mama I'm coming home

I'm coming home
I'm coming home
Tell the world that I'm coming home
Let the rain wash away all the pain from yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits and they've forgiven my mistakes
I'm coming home, I'm coming home
Tell the world that I'm coming, home

Tonight I'll sing my songs again
I'll play the game and pretend
But all my words come back to me in shades of mediocrity
Like emptiness in harmony I need someone to comfort me
Homeward bound
I wish I was
Homeward bound
Home where my thought's escaping
Home where my music's playing
Home where my love lies waiting
Silently for me
Silently for me

“Good night, America, how are you?”
Said, “Don't you know me, I'm your native son.
I'm the train they call ‘The City of New Orleans’.
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done.”

In 1814 we took a little trip
Along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississip
We took a little bacon and we took a little beans
And we caught the bloody British in a town in New Orleans
We fired our guns and the British kep a-comin'
There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago
We fired once more and they begin to runnin'
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico

Don't know the reason,
I've stayed here all season,
Nothing to show but this brand new tattoo,
It's a real beauty,
A Mexican cutie...

Way down here you need a reason to move
Feel a fool running your stateside games
Lose your load, leave your mind behind Baby Jane

Oh, Mexico
It sounds so simple I just got to go
The sun's so hot I forgot to go home
Guess I'll have to go now

Where I go I just don't know
I might end up somewhere in Mexico.
When I find my peace of mind
I'm gonna keep you for the end of time.

Out In The West Texas Town Of El Paso
I Fell In Love With A Mexican Girl
Nighttime Would Find Me In Rosa's Cantina
Music Would Play And Felina Would Whirl

'Cause I'm thinking of you, down in Mexico,
Feeling free as the air,
Here I am, stuck in the city,
Still going nowhere.

And all the vampires walkin' through the valley
Move west down Ventura Boulevard
And all the bad boys are standing in the shadows
And the good girls are home with broken hearts

And I'm free, free fallin'
Yeah, I'm free, free fallin'

I walk this empty street
On the boulevard of broken dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one, and I walk alone
My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
Till then I walk alone

Dreamer, you know you are a dreamer--
Well can you put your hands in your head, oh no!
I said dreamer, you're nothing but a dreamer--
Well can you put your hands in your head, oh no!
I said "far out, what a day, a year, a life it is!"
You know, well you know, you had it comin' to you,
Now, there's not a lot I can do.

You say
I only hear what I want to
I don't listen hard
I don't pay attention
To the distance that you're running
To anyone, anywhere
I don't understand if you really care
I'm only hearing negative, no no no

Don't worry, Mr. Blue, we'll take good care of you
Just think of it as sense and not surrender
But never think again, that you can think again
Or you'll get something you'll remember

What will it take, to whip you into line?
A broken heart? A broken head?
It can be arranged. It can be arranged

My father is a bastard,
My ma's an S.O.B.
My grandpa's always plastered,
My grandma pushes tea.
My sister wears a mustache,
My brother wears a dress.
Goodness gracious, that's why I'm a mess!

Sometimes, I feel I gotta get away
Bells chime, I know I gotta get away

Gotta run for shade
It's too hot

Too hot, lady
(Too hot)
Gotta cool this anger
From this mess that we made

I'm too hot (hot damn)
Call the police and the fireman
I'm too hot (hot damn)
Make a dragon wanna retire man
I'm too hot (hot damn)

I'm too hot (hot damn)
And my band 'bout that money, break it down

All around, people looking half dead
Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head

But at night it's a different world
Go out and find a girl
Come-on come-on and dance all night
Despite the heat it'll be alright

If ever I would leave you
It wouldn't be in summer.
Seeing you in summer
I never would go.
Your hair streaked with sunlight,
Your lips red as flame,
Your face with a lustre
That puts gold to shame!

Or lose you to a summer love?

Miles from nowhere
I guess I'll take my time
Oh yeah, to reach there
Look up at the mountain
I have to climb
Oh yeah, to reach there.
