    Baby Of Mine
    Album: Lucky Day. Posted by JJean

    Baby of mine, please believe me
    When I say I've settled down
    Take no note of jealous people, I've always had them
    Putting me down
    Baby of mine, I've been in trouble, I've let my heart
    Run over my head
    Baby of mine, I won't leave you, and I will take you
    To my bed
    I just couldn't do it any more
    And you can't get no lower than the floor
    The effort may be there,
    but when no one seems to care
    You just can't do it any more
    Baby or mine, at last I've found you
    And I can never let you go
    Baby please believe me when I say I love you so.

    Barefootin'/Let's Go Baby/Land of 1000 Dances
    By Parker/Parker/Kenner
    Album: The Price To Play. Posted by hollyh


    Everybody get on your feet
    It makes you nervous when you're in your seat
    Take off your shoes and tap your feet
    We're doing the dance that can't be beat
    Barefootin', barefootin', barefootin', barefootin',

    Went to a party the other night
    Long tall Sally she was out of sight
    Threw away her wig and her high sneakers too
    She was doing the dance without any shoes
    Barefootin', barefootin', barefootin', barefootin',

    Hey little girl with your red dress on
    I bet you could dance it all night long
    Take off your shoes and throw 'em away
    Come back and get them another day
    Barefootin', barefootin', barefootin', barefootin',

    Everybody go barefoot...take off your shoes...everybody go backwards...
    Barefootin', barefootin', barefootin', barefootin',

    Little John Henry, he said to Sue
    About barefootin', "Would you barefoot too?"
    Sue said, "Johnny you know I do ---
    I been barefootin' ever since I was two."
    Barefootin', barefootin', barefootin', barefootin',

    Baby na-na-na-na nah nah nah

    Let's go baby, where the action is
    Let's go baby, where the action is
    Put on your wig and your high sneakers too
    And your new red dress
    I want you to look the best
    Let's go baby, where the action is
    Let's go baby, where the action is
    Where the action is

    Like Bony Maroni
    Do you know how to jerk
    Well, I want to see you jerk
    La la-la-la-la la-la-la la-la-la la-la-la-la
    Eveyrbody's doin' it, everybody's doin' it now...

    Little John Henry, he said to Sue
    About barefootin', "Would you barefoot too?"
    Sue said, "Johnny you know I do ---
    I been barefootin' ever since I was two."
    Barefootin', barefootin', barefootin', barefootin'...

    BEAT OUT THAT RHYTHM ON A DRUM
    (Bizet- Hammerstein 11) Side 1 (45) Posted by JJean


    I'll tell you why I wanna dance.
    It ain't the sweetness in the music
    I like the sweetness in the music,
    But that ain't why I wanna dance.
    It's something thumping in the bass,
    A bumping underneath the music.
    That bum-bum-bumping under music
    Is all I need to start me off.
    I don't need nothing else to start me off.

    Beat out dat rhythm on a drum,
    Beat out dat rhythm on a drum,
    Beat out dat rhythm on a drum,
    And I don't need no tune at all!
    Beat me dat rhythm on a drum,
    Beat me dat rhythm on a drum,
    Beat me dat rhythm on a drum,
    And I don't need no tune at all!

    I feel it beating in my bones,
    It feel like twenty million tomtoms.
    I know there's twenty million tomtoms
    Beating way down deep inside my bones.

    I feel it beating in my heart,
    And then I get a kind of dream
    And in that dream it kind of seem
    There's just one heart in all the world
    There ain't but one big heart in all the world.

    Beat out dat rhythm on a drum,
    Beat out dat rhythm on a drum,
    Beat out dat rhythm on a drum,
    There's one big heart for all the world!
    Beat out dat rhythm on a drum,
    Beat out dat rhythm on a drum,
    Beat out dat rhythm on a drum,
    There's one big heart for all the world!

    And now that heart is beating fast,
    And that's a rhythm I can dance to,
    I'm mighty glad I got a chance to,
    With that one big heart that's beating fast.
    Tomorrow morning let it rain,
    Tomorrow morning let it pour,
    Tonight we're in the groove together
    Ain't gonna worry about stormy weather
    Gonna kick old trouble out the door!

    Kick out old trouble on a drum,
    Kick out old trouble on a drum,
    Kick out old trouble on a drum,
    And kick his carcass out the door
    Beat out dat rhythm on a drum,
    Beat out dat rhythm on a drum,
    Beat out dat rhythm on a drum,
    And kick old trouble out the door
    And kick him out the door
    And kick him out the door
    And kick him out the door!

    Between Today and Yesterday
    Album: Between Today And Yesterday. Posted by hollyh


    He'll never see his mother's face
    Or feel his father's hand
    Who can you show when you succeed
    In never-never land?

    He's afraid to have his fortune told
    For fear what it might mean
    He doesn't want the picture drawn
    Of things he has to dream

    Between today and yesterday is like a million years
    And the only truthful man he's seen was standing there in tears

    Believe in me, his saviour said,
    And you will be redeemed
    But alas, abdullah, his savior fell
    He wasn't what he seemed

    Now the only happy man he's seen
    Was guilty but insane
    And he laughed and danced because he knew
    That his watchers felt the blame

    Between today and yesterday is like a million years
    And the only truthful man he's seen was standing there in tears

    Beware,the mirror on the wall gets less friendly with passing time
    Enough, I said enough, just draw the shades
    Please let me drink black wine

    Yes, I know it's the ending...

    Between Today and Yesterday 86
    7" single AA side (86 version) posted by Jean

    We’ll never have a human race
    Until we take a stand
    Against the use of principles
    That are built on shifting sands
    Just give a man a useful thing
    Like work or peace of mind
    It shouldn’t be so difficult
    So why is it we find
    Between today and yesterday
    The lesson’s not been learned
    You cannot make men sell their souls
    Without their minds being turned
    The thought of vengeance for the crime
    A wilful planned neglect
    As citizen from citizen
    Deserves more true respect
    But wider still the distance grows
    And we can’t find a way
    To find the courage or the strength
    To stop the slow decay
    Between today and yesterday
    We’ve not removed the fears
    That future generations will
    Will cry the self same tears
    Remember well the sacrifice
    Of the lives that we’ve spent in wars
    Or we’ll make the war about ourselves
    And greed will be the cause.

    Be Yourself
    Album: Based On A True Story. Posted by hollyh

    Don't repeat all the same mistakes
    That's what experience is for
    All that energy going to waste
    On something you should ignore
    And go for those pastures new
    And try to find someone who
    Will share all those dreams with you
    And just try to smile if you do

    So let your conscience be your guide
    You can run but you can't hide
    Live with who you are inside
    Just be yourself

    Reconsider your instincts
    When you feel somebody's been bad
    Your reality's not the same
    The world is all that they have
    Don't fight but just walk away
    Let ignorance have its day
    It's sad when they have their way
    They really have nothing to say

    Well let your conscience be your guide
    If it feels wrong let it ride
    Then eventually you'll decide
    To be yourself

    Fashion determines nothing
    Only the fact will save
    Following all the leaders
    When you should know just how to behave

    Let your conscience be your guide
    You can run but you can't hide
    Live with who you are inside
    Be yourself.

    Biggest Night of Her Life
    by Randy Newman
    Album: A Price On His Head. Posted by hollyh


    Susie's going out tonight
    To her sixteenth birthday party
    Her shoes are pink, her dress is white
    And she's a beautiful sight to see
    And you can bet it will be
    The biggest night of her life

    Susie's got a boy she likes
    And his name is Tom Van Fleet
    Susie's parents think he's nice
    Because his hair is always neat
    And you can be it will be
    The biggest night of his life

    Two kids out dancing, having fun
    Till the sun comes up
    In a high-school sweater and a paper hat
    What could be wrong with that?

    Susie's going out tonight
    To a promise she must keep
    She thought about it all last night
    And she was too excited to sleep
    And you can bet it will be
    The biggest night of her life.

    Susie's going out tonight
    To her sixteenth birthday party
    Her shoes are pink, her dress is white
    And she's a beautiful sight to see
    And you can bet it will be
    The biggest night of her life

    And you can bet it will be
    The biggest night of her life.

    BILLY BOY
    Album: Geordie Roots and Branches. Posted by Diana


    Oh, where have you been,
    Billy Boy, Billy Boy?
    Oh, where have you been,
    Charming Billy?
    I have been to seek a wife,
    She's the joy of my life,
    She's a young thing
    And cannot leave her mother.

    Did she ask you to come in,
    Billy Boy, Billy Boy?
    Did she ask you to come in,
    Charming Billy?
    Yes, she asked me to come in,
    There's a dimple in her chin.
    She's a young thing
    And cannot leave her mother.

    Can she make a cherry pie,
    Billy Boy, Billy Boy?
    Can she make a cherry pie,
    Charming Billy?
    She can make a cherry pie,
    Quick as a cat can wink an eye,
    She's a young thing
    And cannot leave her mother.

    How old is she,
    Billy Boy, Billy Boy?
    How old is she,
    Charming Billy?
    Three times six and four times seven,
    Twenty-eight and eleven,
    She's a young thing
    And cannot leave her mother.
