Well we know where we're going
But we don't know where we've been
And we know what we're knowing
But we can't say what we've seen
And we're not little children
And we know what we want
And the future is certain
Give us time to work it out

I study nuclear science
I love my classes
I got a crazy teacher, he wears dark glasses
Things are going great, and they're only getting better
I'm doing all right, getting good grades
The future's so bright, I gotta wear shades

But, it's poetry in motion
And when she turned her eyes to me
As deep as any ocean
As sweet as any harmony
Unh, she's blinding me with science
She blinded me with science
She blinded me with science

I will date the girl from Venus
Flowers die and so will I
Yes, I will kiss the girl from Venus for science

How sad Venice can be
When the melodies play
A song she sung for me
One unforgotten day

My Venus in blue jeans
Is the Cinderella I adore
She's my very special angel too
A fairy tale come true

What I've got's full stock of thoughts and dreams that scatter
You pull them all together
And how, I can't explain
Oh yeah, well well you
You make my dreams come true
Well well you, oh yeah
You make my dreams come true

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all, when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out
I faced it all and I stood tall
And did it my way

I'll go it alone, that's how it must be
I can't be right for somebody else
If I'm not right for me
I gotta be free, I just gotta be free
Daring to try, to do it or die
I gotta be me

All night long,
Someone's trying to believe he's strong.
Will he make it by the break of the day?
Who can say whose power is growing.

I can't wait for winds to blow my way.
Let them shake the world, I know I know my way,
I know that songs that died unsung knew their way too.
Most songs do, most songs do.

Some folks like to sigh,
Some folks do, some folks do;
Some folks long to die,
But that’s not me nor you.

Long live the merry merry heart
That laughs by night and day,
Like the Queen of Mirth,
No matter what some folks say.

Take the bottle, fill your cup;
Don't miss the part where I fold up;
Annie's going to sing her song
Called "Take Me Back Again;"
Come on, Annie, sing your song
And I'll take you back again.

I'll Take You Home Again, Kathleen
Across the ocean wild and wide
To where your heart has ever been
Since first you were my Bonnie bride.
The roses all have left your cheek.
I've watched them fade away and die
Your voice is sad when e'er you speak
And tears bedim your loving eyes.

Hello to married men I've known
I'll soon have a wife an' leave yours alone.
A bonnie wife indeed,
And she's all I'll ever need.
With bonnie Jean my days will fly;
An' love her I will till the day I die.
That's why, across the green,
I'll go home with bonnie Jean!

Jeanny! Quit living on dreams
Jeanny! Life is not what it seems
Such a lonely little girl in a cold, cold world
There's someone who needs you
Jeanny! Quit living on dreams
Jeanny! Life is not what it seems
You're lost in the night, don't wanna struggle and fight
There's someone, who needs you!

There is someone walking behind you
Turn around, look at me
There is someone watching your footsteps
Turn around, look at me
There is someone who really needs you
Here's my heart in my hand
Turn around, look at me

There's a thing there that can be found

It's a human skull on the ground

Don't turn around
Cause you're gonna see my heart breaking
Don't turn around
I don't want you seeing me cry
Just walk away
It's tearing me apart that you're leaving
I'm letting you go
But I won't let you know

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)
There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)
And a time to every purpose, under Heaven

A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)
There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)
And a time to every purpose, under Heaven

Now you all were saying that you want to be free

You'll come runnin' back to me, yeah

Down the trail and around the farm
Come a thousand people with their underwear on
Picking 'em up, laying 'em down like mad
Puffing and groaning, their faces all red
Eyes rolled back in their sweaty heads
I never saw so many people look so bad

Crying "Come on, Harry! Come on, Sue
We're gonna do what the magazines tell us to
Get ourselves in shape the fashionable way
Twenty-five laps around the pond
Will make us tall and slim and blonde
Oh, hand me down my jogging shoes today"

Then I woke up,
And I was not a tiger, or an elephant.
I was not an alligator - crocodile? - no, alligator!
I was not a dancing bear or a tall giraffe.
I was only me... and that's the way I'll be,
Oh, that's the way I'll be.
I enjoy being an oyster!

But if green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why, but why wonder, why wonder
I'm green and it'll do fine
It's beautiful and I think it's what I want to be.

You are too beautiful
my dear, to be true
and I am a fool for beauty
fooled by a feeling
that because I had found you
I could have bound you to me.

You are too beautiful
for one man alone
one lucky fool to be with
when there are other men
with eyes of their own
to see with.

Dear Prudence, won't you come out to play

Yes, and thanks for the trouble
You took from her eyes
I thought it was there for good
So I never tried
And Jane came by with a lock of your hair
She said that you gave it to her
That night that you planned to go clear

Sincerely, L. Cohen

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

Nothing's quite as pretty as Mary in the morning
When through the sleepy haze I see her lying there
Soft as the rain that falls on summer flowers
Warm as the sunlight shining on her head

Nothin' seems to fit
Those raindrops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'

Who's that walkin' round here? Mercy
Sounds like baby patter, baby elephant patter, that's what I call it
Say up in Harlem at a table for two
There were four of us, me, your big feet and you
From your ankles up, I'd say you sure look sweet
From there down there's just too much feet
Yes, your feet's too big
Don't want ya 'cause ya feet's too big
Can't use ya 'cause ya feet's too big
I really hate ya 'cause ya feet's too big
