So, if you ask me why I like the way I play it
There's only one thing I can say to you
I wanna rock!

Daddy, you know I love you,
But you've got a lot to learn about Rock & Roll!

The love between the two of us was dying,
And it got so bad I knew I had to leave.
But halfway down that highway when I turned around I saw,
My little daughter running after me.

Crying, Daddy, don't you walk so fast,
Daddy, don't you walk so fast,
Daddy, slow down some, 'cause you're makin' me run,
Daddy, don't you walk so fast.

You're sugar, you're spice,
You're everything nice,
And you're Daddy's Little Girl.

Janie's got a gun
Janie's got a gun
Her whole world's come undone
From lookin' straight at the sun
What did her daddy do?
What did he put you through?

I've written a letter to Daddy
His address is Heaven above
I've written "Dear Daddy, we miss you
And wish you were with us to love"
Instead of a stamp, I put kisses
The postman says that's best to do
I've written a letter to Daddy
Saying "I love you"
I've written a letter to Daddy
Saying "I love you"

Precious and few are the moments we two can share
Quiet and blue, like the sky, I'm hung over you
And if I can't find my way back home, it just wouldn't be fair
'Cause precious and few are the moments we two can share

Karma police
I've given all I can
It's not enough
I've given all I can
But we're still on the payroll

This is what you'll get
This is what you'll get
This is what you'll get
When you mess with us

For a minute there
I lost myself, I lost myself
Phew, for a minute there
I lost myself, I lost myself

Many years have passed since those summer days among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down among the fields of gold
You'll remember me when the west wind moves upon the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky when we walked in fields of gold

Once there were green fields, kissed by the sun.
Once there were valleys, where rivers used to run.
Once there were blue skies, with white clouds high above.
Once they were part of an everlasting love.
We were the lovers who strolled through green fields.

The blinds were being pulled down on the dew
Inside, out of love, what a laugh
I was looking for you

I saw the light on the night that I passed by her window
I saw the flickering shadow of love on her blind
She was my woman
As she deceived me I watched and went out of my mind

Took a walk and passed your house; late last night,
All the shades were pulled and drawn; way down tight,
From within, the dim light cast two silhouettes on the shade.
Oh, what a lovely couple they made....

For last night, he held you tightly
And you didn't even shove
This is true, for I've been watching
(Watching you)
From the window up above...

No matter gay or grim, it's those tiny little sparks
Daily life that makes me forget my wounded heart
It doesn't matter when, it may rain or it may shine
blurry memories of us come back from time to time

It was twenty years ago today
Sergeant Pepper taught the band to play,
They've been going in and out of style,
But they're guaranteed to raise the smile,
So may I introduce to you,
The act you've known for all these years,
Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

Jet was your father as bold as the sergeant major
How come he told you that you were hardly old enough yet
And Jet I thought the major was a lady suffragette

(Jet, Jet)

Ah mater want Jet to always love me
Ah mater want Jet to always love me
Ah mater, much later

Leavin' home, out on the road
I've been down before
Ridin' along in this big ol' jet plane
I've been thinkin' about my home
But my love light seems so far away
And I feel like it's all been done
Somebody's tryin' to make me stay
You know I've got to be movin' on

You're on the road and now you pray it lasts
The road behind was rocky
But now you're feeling cocky
You look at me and you see your past
Is that the reason why you're runnin' so fast
And she said

Ain't nothin' gonna break-a my stride
Nobody gonna slow me down, oh no
I got to keep on moving
Ain't nothin' gonna break-a my stride
I'm running and I won't touch ground
Oh no, I got to keep on moving

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 traveled each and every highway
But more, much more than this, I did it my way

Life is a highway,
I want to ride it all night long.
If you're going my way,
I want to drive it all night long.

Early one mornin' while makin' the rounds
Took a transfusion and I shot my woman down
Went right home and I went to bed I stuck that lovin' 44 beneath my head
Got up next mornin' and I grabbed that gun took a transfusion and away I run
Made a good run but I run too slow they overtook me down in Juarez Mexico

In a little café
Just the other side of the border,
She was just sitting there and givin' me
Looks that made my mouth water.
So I started walking her way,
She belonged to bad man, José,
And I knew, yes I knew I should leave,
When I heard her say, yeah,
Come a little bit closer....

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

I am the entertainer,
I come to do my show.
You've heard my latest record,
It's been on the radio.
Ah, it took me years to write it;
They were the best years of my life.

It was a beautiful song, but it ran too long,
If you're gonna have a hit, you gotta make it fit,
So they cut it down to 3:05.

Hold on to that paper
Hold on to that paper
Hold on because it'll be taken care of
Hold on to that paper

Don't think I can fit it on the paper
Don't think I can get it on the paper
Go ahead and rip up, rip up the paper
Go ahead and tear up, tear up the paper

You never give me your money
You only give me your funny paper
And in the middle of negotiations
You break down

I never give you my number
I only give you my situation
And in the middle of investigation
I break down

As I was going over the far famed Kerry mountains
I met with Captain Farrel and his money he was counting
I first produced my pistol and then produced my rapier
Saying 'Stand and deliver for I am a bold deceiver'

With me ring am a do ama dah
Whack fol the daddy o
Whack fol the daddy o
There's whiskey in the jar

He counted out his money and it made a pretty penny
I put it in my pocket and I gave it to my Jenny
She sighed and she swore that she never would deceive me
But the devil take the women for they never can be easy

With me ring am a do ama dah
Whack fol the daddy o
Whack fol the daddy o
There's whiskey in the jar

I'm the dandy highwayman who you're too scared to mention
I spend my cash on looking flash and grabbing your attention
The devil take your stereo and your record collection (oh-oh)
The way you look you'll qualify for next year's old age pension

Stand and deliver your money or your life

And then the Lord he called for one more card,
But he drew the diamond eight.
And the Devil said to the son of God,
"I believe you've got a straight,
So deal me one, for the time has come,
To see who'll be the king of this place."
But as he spoke, from beneath his cloak,
He slipped another ace!

Did we in our own strength confide,
Our striving would be losing;
Were not the right Man on our side,
The Man of God’s own choosing:
Dost ask who that may be?
Christ Jesus, it is He;
Lord Sabaoth His Name,
From age to age the same,
And He must win the battle.

The Queen of Light took her bow
And then she turned to go
The Prince of Peace embraced the gloom
And walked the night alone
Oh, dance in the dark of night
Sing to the morning light
The dark Lord rides in force tonight
And time will tell us all
Oh, throw down your plow and hoe
Rest not to lock your homes
Side by side we wait the might
Of the darkest of them all, oh

It's a doggone shame my love for you makes all your lies seem true
But if the truth makes love last longer
Why do lies make my love stronger? (stronger, stronger, stronger)

Ain't that peculiar?
