The love bug done bit me
Didn't mean for him to get me
Woo, get up in the morning
And I'm filled with desire
No, no, I can't stop the fire
Love is a real life wire
Ooh, it's a burning sensation
Far behind imagination
Love is like an itching in my heart

One good turn deserves another
Be my love, I'll be your lover
It's all part of nature's laws
If you'll scratch my back then I'll scratch yours.

The first time that I got it
I was just ten years old
I got it from some kitty next door
I went and see the Dr. and he gave me the cure
I think I got it some more
They give me cat scratch fever
Cat scratch fever

Now old Mr. Johnson had troubles of his own
He had a yellow cat that wouldn't leave his home
He tried and he tried to get that cat away
Gave it to a man going far away

But the cat came back, the very next day
The cat came back, they thought he was a goner
But the cat came back, just wouldn't stay away

When I look back, boy, I must have been green
Bopping in the country, fishing in a stream
Looking for an answer, trying to find a sign
Until I saw your city lights, honey, I was blind

They said, get back, honky cat
Better get back to the woods
Well, I quit those days and my redneck ways
And, oh, the change is gonna do me good
You better get back, honky cat

You better get back, honky cat
Living in the city ain't where it's at
It's like trying to find gold in a silver mine
It's like trying to drink whiskey from a bottle of wine

Life and death and love and birth.

Is there anything that's worth more?
Than peace and love on planet Earth?

So where are the strong?
And who are the trusted?
And where is the harmony?
Sweet harmony

'Cause each time I feel it slippin' away, just makes me wanna cry
What's so funny 'bout peace love and understanding? Ohhhh

Peace, love and understanding
Tell me, is there no place for them today
They say we must fight to keep our freedom
But Lord knows there's got to be a better way!
Oh, war, huh, good God why'all?
What is it good for? You tell me
Say it, say it, say it, say it

Your pop caught you smoking, and he said, no way!
That hypocrite smokes two packs a day
Man, living at home is such a drag
Now your mom threw away your best porno mag (bust it!)

You gotta fight for your right to party

You gotta fight

Sitting in the classroom, thinking it's a drag,
Listening to the teacher rap, just ain't my bag,
The noon bells rings, you know that's my cue,
I'm gonna meet the boys on floor number two!

Smokin' in the boys' room....

I've seen fire and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that I'd see you again

It's the circle of life
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle
The circle of life

Take your place on The Great Mandala
As it moves through your brief moment of time.
Win or lose now you must choose now
And if you lose you're only losing your life.

I've looked at life from both sides now
From give and take and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all

My mama said, "you can't hurry love
No, you'll just have to wait"
She said, "love don't come easy
But it's a game of give and take"

The judges will decide
The likes of me abide
Spectators of the show
Always staying low
The game is on again
A lover or a friend
A big thing or a small
The winner takes it all

You're my bread when I'm hungry,
You're my shelter from troubled winds,
You're my anchor in life's ocean,
But, most if all,
You're my best friend....

Don't answer me, don't break the silence
Don't let me win
Don't answer me, stay on your island
Don't let me in
Run away and hide from everyone
Can you change the things we've said and done?

No one will ever know how much I love you so
My only prayer will be, someday you'll care for me,
But it's o-only make believe

In honor of Peter Tork's passing...

Then I saw her face, now I'm a believer
Not a trace, of doubt in my mind
I'm in love, I'm a believer
I couldn't leave her if I tried

We could have had it all (you're gonna wish you never had met me)
Rolling in the deep (Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside of your hand (you're gonna wish you never had met me)
And you played it to the beat (tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

Time on my hands could be time spent with you
Laughing like children, living like lovers
Rolling like thunder under the covers
And I guess that's why they call it the blues

If I could save time in a bottle,
The first thing I'd like to do,
Is to save everyday
'Til eternity passes away,
Just spend them with you...

A long time ago I had a lady to love
She made me think of things I never thought of
Now she's gone and I'm on my own
A love song has come into my mind
A love song, it was there all the time

Whenever our lives met
Like smoke from a cigarette

Well, your fingers weave quick minarets
Speak in secret alphabets
I light another cigarette
Learn to forget, learn to forget
Learn to forget, learn to forget

Let me sleep all night in your soul kitchen
Warm my mind near your gentle stove
Turn me out and I'll wander baby
Stumblin' in the neon groves

The king called up his jet fighters
He said you better earn your pay
Drop your bombs between the minarets
Down the Casbah way
As soon as the Shareef was
Chauffeured outta there
The jet pilots tuned to
The cockpit radio blare
As soon as the Shareef was
Out of their hair
The jet pilots wailed

The Shareef don't like it
Rockin' the Casbah
Rock the Casbah

All the bazaar men, by the Nile,
They got money on a bet,
Gold crocodiles (oh, whey, oh)
They snap their teeth on your cigarette...

Smoke, smoke, smoke, that cigarette.
Puff puff puff.
And if you smoke yourself to death,
Tell St Peter at the Golden Gate,
That you hate to make him wait,
But you just gotta have another cigarette.

California, here I come, yeah!
Right where I started from
Where bowers are flowers bloom in the spring
Each morning at dawning
Birdies sing and everything
A sun kissed miss said "Don't be late!"
That's why I can hardly wait
Open up, open up, open up that Golden Gate!
California, here I come!

But each day, when she walks to the sea
She looks straight ahead, not at me

Tall, and tan, and young, and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes, I smile but she doesn't see

Wasted away again in Margaritaville
Searchin' for my lost shaker of salt
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
But I know, it's my own damn fault
Yes, and some people claim that there's a woman to blame
And I know it's my own damn fault
