All day long I hear people talking out loud
When you hold me near
You drown out the crowd
Ol' Mr. Webster could never define
What's being said between your heart and mine....

Truly, I have wept too much
In the dawns are heart breakers
Every moon is atrocious, every sun bitter
Sharp love has swollen me up!

Half a gram later I was hearing Jimmy loud

She lives all alone in a house on a hill
She thinks she'll marry
But, she never will...

Are you old enough to marry, do you think?
Won't you wait till you are eighty in the shade?
There's a fascination frantic
In a ruin that's romantic;
Do you think you are sufficiently decayed?

To the matter that you mention
I have given some attention
And I think I am sufficiently decayed

If that is so
Sing derry down derry!
It's evident, very
Our tastes are one
Away we'll go
And merrily marry
Nor tardily tarry
'Til day is done!

There's nobody else here, no one like me
I'm special
(Special)
So special
(Special)
I got have some of your attention, give it to me

I got rhythm, I can't miss a beat
I got a new Skank, so reet
Got something, I'm winking at you
Gonna make you, make you, make you notice

I got rhythm, I got music, I got my man,
Who could ask for anything more?
I've got daisies in green pastures,
I've got my man,
Who could ask for anything more?

Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do
I'm half crazy all for the love of you
It won't be a stylish marriage
I can't afford a carriage
But you'll look sweet upon the seat
Of a bicycle built for two

I ride my bike, I roller skate, don't drive no car
Don't go so fast, but I go pretty far
For somebody who don't drive, I've been all around the world
Some people say I've done all right for a girl

You got a fast car
But is it fast enough so we can fly away?
We gotta make a decision
We leave tonight or live and die this way

See I remember we were driving, driving in your car
The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder

I've been drivin' all night, my hand's wet on the wheel,
There's a voice in my head that drives my heel,
It's my baby callin', says I need you here,
And it's a half past four and I'm shiftin' gear.
When she is lonely and the longing gets too much,
She sends a cable comin' in from above,
Don't need no phone at all,
We've got a thing that's called radar love....

I don't want a pickle
Just want to ride on my motorcycle
And I don't want a tickle
'Cause I'd rather ride on my motorcycle
And I don't want to die
I just want to ride on my motorcy. . .

I gotta be cool, relax, get hip
And get on my track's
Take a back seat, hitch-hike
And take a long ride on my motorbike
Until I'm ready
Crazy little thing called love

Help, I'm steppin' into the twilight zone
Place is a madhouse, feels like being alone
My beacon's been moved under moon and star
Where am I to go now that I've gone too far?

Head out on the highway
Looking for adventure
And whatever comes our way...

Pickin' up the pieces of my sweet shattered dream,
I wonder how the old folks are tonight.
Her name was Ann and I'll be damned if I recall her face,
She left me not knowin' what to do.

Carefree highway, let me slip away on you,
Carefree highway, you seen better days--
The mornin' after blues, from my head down to my shoes,
Carefree highway, let me slip away, slip away on you.

Slip slidin' away
Slip slidin' away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you're slip slidin' away
I know a man
He came from my home town
He wore his passion for his woman
Like a thorny crown
He said Delores
I live in fear
My love for you's so overpowering
I'm afraid that I will disappear
Slip slidin' away
Slip slidin' away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you're slip slidin' away

I've got my clipboard, text books
Lead me to the station
Yeah, I'm off to the civil war
I've got my kit bag, my heavy boots
I'm runnin' in the rain
Gonna run till my feet are raw

Slip kid, slip kid, slip out of trouble
Slip over here and set me free
Slip kid, slip kid, second generation
You're slidin' down the hill like me
No easy way to be free

Last night me and Kate, we laid in bed
Talking about getting out
Packing up our bags maybe heading south
I'm thirty-five, we got a boy of our own now
Last night I sat him up behind the wheel, and said
"Son take a good look around
This is your hometown."

What is it like to eat and drink for a long time?
Их л удаан идэж уугаад наргиж цэнгээд хачин юм бэ юу вэ юу вэ юув

Father and father were born in Mongolia
Эцэг өвгөд Монгол гээд л цээжээ

what's the lie of a lie?
дэлдэн худлаа орилох нь юу вэ юу вэ юув

Return and speak in his words
Эргэж буцаад хэлсэн үгэндээ эзэн

what does it do?
болдоггүй андгай өргөдөг нь юу вэ юу вэ юув

A valuable teaching by the parents
Эцэг эхийн захиж хэлсэн үнэт сургааль

What is free, what does it do?
үнэгүй болдог нь юу вэ юу вэ юув, юу вэ юу вэ юув

Say hello
Ээ дүлзэн сөгд сөгд

Get this shotgun up and down
Ээ лүндэн бууг бууг, бууг бууг

When I was born, I was born
Дээдсийн заяаг удамлаж төрчихөөд унтаж

What is it?
хэвтээд сэрдэггүй юм бэ юу вэ юу вэ юув

It's the only Mongolian in the world
Дэлхийд ганцхан Монгол гээд л амаа

What does it say to lie about to dry?
хаттал худлаа ярьдаг нь юу вэ юу вэ юув

Born in Mongolia
Дээдсээр амьдрах заяанд төрсөн Монгол

what is the unity of unity?
түмэн нэгдэж чаддаггүй нь юу вэ юу вэ юув

The Darkhan drew up Mongolia
Дархан Монгол улсаа мандуулж өөд нь татаж

what does it do?
сэргээж чаддаггүй нь юу вэ юу вэ юув, юу вэ юу вэ юув

Say hello
Ээ дүлзэн сөгд сөгд

Get this shotgun up and down
Ээ лүндэн бууг бууг, бууг бууг

Place of ancestral inheritance
Өвөг дээдсийн өвлөж өгсөн газар

What is it that does not love the earth?
шороог хайрлаж чаддаггүй нь юу вэ юу вэ юув

Predictably, precious stones
Өтгөс буурлын захиж хэлсэн үнэт

what does it mean to be a lie?
сургааль худлаа болдог нь юу вэ юу вэ юув

It's all over forever
Өнө л мөнхөд мандан бадрах чонон

The Mongols have the seal of the sky
сүлдэт Монгол түмэн тэнгэрийн тамгатай

A man in the world has a name
Хөвчин дэлхийд нэрээ дуурсгах хүмүүн

the sacred worshipers of Chinggis Khan will worship
тахилгат эзэн Чингис нартад залрана, нартад залрана

Please wake up
Ээ хар сүлд сэр сэр

God's kingdom is eternal and eternal
Ээ хаан төр мөнх манд, мөнх манд

What is what is what is what
Юу вэ юу вэ юу вэ юу вэ юу вэ юу вэ юу вэ

It's strange
Хачин юм бэ

what is what is what
юу вэ юу вэ юу вэ юу вэ юу вэ

What is what is what is what
Юу вэ юу вэ юу вэ юу вэ юу вэ юу вэ юу вэ

It's strange
Хачин юм бэ

what is what is what
юу вэ юу вэ юу вэ юу вэ юу вэ

Please wake up
Ээ хар сүлд сэр сэр

God's kingdom is eternal and eternal
Ээ хаан төр мөнх манд, мөнх манд

And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England's mountains green?
And was the holy Lamb of God
On England's pleasant pastures seen?

And did the Countenance Divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here
Among these dark satanic mills?

Oh, can't you see the morning after?

Why don't we cross the bridge together
And find a place that's safe and warm?

Well I'm gonna pack my suitcase
Gonna hop right in that car
Don't worry baby you know I won't go far
Gonna cross that bridge
And found out what's going down
New York Town
And once I cross that bridge
You know I'll never turn around
I'm gonna split this town
Well I'm going to Manhattan
Don't want no woman trying to hold me down
Gonna cross that bridge
And found out what's going down
And once I cross that bridge
You know I'll never turn around

Out on the road for forty days
Last night in Little Rock put me in a haze
Sweet, sweet Connie, doin' her act
She had the whole show and that's a natural fact
Up all night with Freddie King
I got to tell you, poker's his thing
Booze and ladies, keep me right
As long as we can make it to the show tonight

On a tour of one-night stands my suitcase and guitar in hand
And every stop is neatly planned for a poet and a one-man band
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

Now the seats are all empty
Let the roadies take the stage
Pack it up and tear it down
They're the first to come and the last to leave
Working for that minimum wage
They'll set it up in another town

The man from the magazine
Said I was on my way
Somewhere I lost connections
Ran out of songs to play
I came into town, a one night stand
Looks like my plans fell through
Oh Lord, stuck in Lodi again

Well I don't know why I came here tonight,
I got the feeling that something ain't right,
I'm so scared in case I fall off my chair,
And I'm wondering how I'll get down the stairs,
Clowns to the left of me,
Jokers to the right, here I am,
Stuck in the middle with you.

Every day she takes a morning bath she wets her hair
Wraps a towel around her as she's heading for the bedroom chair
It's just another day
Slipping into stockings, stepping into shoes
Dipping in the pocket of her raincoat
It's just another day
At the office where the papers grow she takes a break
Drinks another coffee and she finds it hard to stay awake
It's just another day

Tumble outta bed and I stumble to the kitchen
Pour myself a cup of ambition
Yawn and stretch and try to come to life
Jump in the shower and the blood starts pumpin'
Out on the street the traffic starts jumpin'
With folks like me on the job from 9 to 5

… Workin' 9 to 5, what a way to make a livin'
Barely gettin' by, it's all takin' and no givin'
They just use your mind and they never give you credit
It's enough to drive you crazy if you let it

Woke up, fell out of bed,
Dragged a comb across my head,
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup,
And looking up, I noticed I was late....

Los cuatro generales,
mamita mía, que se han alzado,
que se han alzado.

Para la nochebuena,
mamita mía, serán ahorcados,
serán ahorcados.

Madrid, qué bien resistes,
mamita mía, los bombardeos,
los bombardeos.

De las bombas se ríen,
mamita mía, los madrileños,
los madrileños.
