I'm a spaceship superstar,
Got a solar-powered laser beam guitar.
I'm at the top of all the charts on Mars;
I'm a spaceship superstar....

Here comes the sun, and I say
It's all right

Sunny, yesterday my life was filled with rain,
Sunny, you smiled at me and really eased the pain.
Now the dark days are gone, and the bright days are here,
My sunny one shines so sincere,
Sunny, one so true--I love you.

Yesterday
All my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they're here to stay
Oh, I believe in yesterday
Suddenly
I'm not half the man I used to be
There's a shadow hanging over me
Oh, yesterday came suddenly

I came to town to search for gold
And I brought with me a memory
And I seemed to hear the night winds cry
Go hang your dreams on the hanging tree
Your dreams of love that will never be
Hang your faded dreams on the hanging tree.

Shattered dreams, worthless years
Here am I encased inside a hollow shell
Life began, then was done
Now I stare into a cold and empty well
The many sounds that meet our ears
The sights our eyes behold
Will open up our merging hearts
And feed our empty souls

Our love is an old love baby, it's older than all our years.
I have seen in strange young eyes, familiar tears.
We're old souls in a new life, baby;
They gave us a new life to live and learn.
Some time to touch old friends, and still return.

Ooh, ooh, I just wanted to get your name
Sólo quería tu nombre, bebé
But if it's cool, I wanna get inside your brain

Can we get famili-famili-famili-familiar? (Familiar)
I'm feelin' I'm feelin' I'm feelin' I'm feelin' ya (familiar)

I didn't know your name
But it never really mattered
For I love you just the same

Like the pine trees linin' the windin' road,
I've got a name, I've got a name.
Like the singin' bird and the croakin' toad,
I've got a name, I've got a name.

So let me please introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
And I laid traps for troubadours
Who get killed before they reached Bombay
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game, oh yeah

Well, its eight o'clock in Boise, Idaho
I'll find my limo driver
Mister, take us to the show
I done made some plans for later on tonight
I'll find a little queen
And I know I can treat her right
What's your name, little girl?
What's your name?
Shootin' you straight, little girl?
Won't you do the same?

She gets too hungry for dinner at eight
She likes the theatre and never comes late
She never bothers with people she'd hate
That's why the lady is a tramp

And now, the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I'll say it clear
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain
I've lived a life that's full
I've traveled each and every highway
But more, much more than this
I did it my way

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

Carry on my wayward son
For there'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more

I'm starting with the man in the mirror
I'm asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you want to make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes,
Turn and face the strange,
Ch-ch-changes,
There's gonna have to be a different man,
Time may change me,
But I can't trace time.

Studying a face,
Stepping back to look at a face
Leaves a little space in the way like a window,
But to see-
It's the only way to see.
And when the woman that you wanted goes,
You can say to yourself, "Well, I give what I give."
But the women who won't wait for you knows
That, however you live,
There's a part of you always standing by,
Mapping out the sky,
Finishing a hat...
Starting on a hat..
Finishing a hat...
Look, I made a hat...
Where there never was a hat

I've just seen a face,
I can't forget the time or place
Where we just met.
She's just the girl for me,
And I want all the world to see,
We've met, mm-mm-mm-m'mm-mm

Who knows?
Not me
I never lost control
You're face to face
With the man who sold the world

Far beneath the ship, the world is mourning,
They don't realize, he's alive.
No one understands, but Major Tom sees,
Now the light commands, "This is my home--
I'm coming home."

Two of us riding nowhere
Spending someone's hard earned pay
You and me Sunday driving
Not arriving on our way back home
We're on our way back home
We're on our way home
We're going home

Then somewhere near Salinas, Lord, I let her slip away
She was lookin' for the home I hope she'll find
Well I'd trade all my tomorrows for a single yesterday
Holdin' Bobby's body close to mine

Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose
And nothin' left was all she left to me
Feelin' good was easy, Lord, when Bobby sang the blues
And buddy, that was good enough for me
Good enough for me and Bobby McGee

I want to be Bobby's girl
I want to be Bobby's girl,
That's the most important thing to me...
And if I was Bobby's girl,
If I was Bobby's girl,
What a faithful thankful girl I'd be.

I feel like Bobby Fischer
Always four moves ahead of
My competition, listen they ain't gonna stop me ever
I feel as large as Biggie, swear it could not get better
I feel in charge like Biggie, wearing that Cosby sweater

Oh, the games people play now
Every night and every day now,
Never meaning what they say, now
Never saying what they mean

What's the name of the game?
Does it mean anything to you?
What's the name of the game?
Can you feel it the way I do?

It started long ago in the Garden of Eden
When Adam said to Eve, baby, you're for me
So come on baby, let's start today, come on baby, let's play
The game of love, love, la la la la la love

Love(mm-mm-mm), love is strange (mm-mm-mm)
A lot of people (mm-mm-mm) take it for a game
Once you get it (mm-mm-mm) you're in an awful fix (mm-mm-mm)
After you've had it (mm-mm-mm) you'll never wanna quit
Many people (mm-mm-mm), don't understand (no, no)
They think loving (yay-ee-ay) is money in the hand
Your sweet lovin' (mm-mm-mm) is better than a kiss (yay-ee-ay)
When you leave me (mm-mm-mm) sweet kisses I miss

Little arrows that will hit you once
And hit you once again
Little arrows that hit everybody
Every now and then.
Oh, oh, oh, the pain.

Cupid, draw back your bow.
And let your arrow flow.
Straight to my lovers heart for me.
Nobody but me.
Cupid, please hear my cry.
And let your arrow fly.
Straight to my lovers heart, for me.

And if their wings burn, I know I'm not to blame
Falling in love again
Never wanted to
What am I to do?
