    CHANGES
    Album: Alan Price Live In Concert. Posted by JJean


    Everyone is going through changes
    No one knows what's going on
    And everybody changes places
    But the world still carries on

    Love must always change to sorrow
    And everyone must play the game
    It's here today and gone tomorrow
    But the world goes on the some

    Everyone is going through changes
    No one knows what's going on
    And everybody changes places
    But the world still carries on

    Now love must always change to sorrow
    And everyone must play the game
    It's here today and gone tomorrow
    But the world goes on the some

    Everyone is going through changes ....
    Now love must always change to sorrow ....

    Everyone is going through changes
    But the world still carries on

    Changing Partners
    Album: Metropolitan Man. Posted by JJean


    I thought at the beginning we could see the end and we could stay together
    see what love could bring
    But the time has changed us and the whole world too, so we're changin'
    partners tell me what to do

    I gave you all my money and I shared my heart
    But you took them both and they were torn apart
    I didn't know how stupid I could be but I won't forget until eternity.

    Cherie
    Album: Shouts Across The Street. Posted by hollyh


    This is a song I wrote all on my own in Marylebone.

    I wanna howl like a dog
    That's left out in the pouring rain
    It's such a shame you don't want me
    Shame you don't need me
    Will I ever be the same
    Same boy who used to wait outside your door
    Who had never been in love before
    Cherie, Cherie, Cherie

    I wanna wail like a seabird
    Flying on the ocean wind
    It's such a shame you don't want me
    Shame you don't need me
    Will I ever be the same
    Same boy who used to wait outside your door
    Who had never been in love before
    Cherie, Cherie, Cherie

    (repeat verse 1)

    Citizens Of The World Unite
    Album: Lucky Day. Posted by JJean

    Citizens of the world unite and fight for
    What is right - think of your children
    Take a look around you and bear witness to
    The cruel world we're building
    One half of the world eats whilst one half is going crazy
    One half of the world kills whilst the other's growin' lazy

    Citizens of the world awake and act for goodness sake
    Whilst you're still breathing
    Everyone has got a faith be it the cross or
    Red flag you believe in
    One half of the world hates whilst the other lives in terror
    One half of the world waits for the other's major error.

    City Lights
    Album: Between Today And Yesterday. Posted by hollyh


    The city lights are shining out for me
    And I must leave
    And no one will be watching out for me
    Yet I believe
    That it's true
    It's new

    The city dreams are shining out for me
    And I am on my own
    The city eats the children up
    And spits them out
    Before they're almost grown
    It's true
    It's new

    The city lights are shining out for me
    And I must leave
    And no one will be watching out for me
    Yet I believe
    That it's true
    It makes you blue...

    Come And Dance With Me
    by Randy Newman
    Album: A Price On His Head. Posted by hollyh


    I stand against the wall
    Much too shy to speak at all
    I watch them dancing by me
    Lord, I'm dying
    They don't know it
    I'm so lonely I can't show it
    Someone please, come and dance with me

    Music fills the air
    And there's laughter everywhere
    Can't let them know I'm crying
    Happy eyes that will not see
    Pretty people, look at me
    Can someone please come and dance with me
    Someone please, come and dance with me
    Someone please, come and dance with me

    CUSHIE BUTTERFIELD
    Album: Geordie Roots and Branches. Posted by Diana

    I'm a broken-hearted keelman
    An I'm o'er head in love
    Wi a young lass from Gateshead
    An I call her me dove.
    Her name's Cushie Butterfield
    An she sells yella clay
    An her cousin's a muckman
    An they call him Tom Gray.

    CHORUS:
    She's a big lass
    She's a bonny lass
    An she likes her beer
    An I call her Cushie Butterfield
    An I wish she was here.


    Her eyes is like two holes
    In a blanket pulled through
    An her breath in the mornin
    Would scare a young coo.
    And when I hear her shoutin'
    Will you buy ony clay?
    Like a candyman's trumpet
    It steals me young heart away.

    CHORUS
    She's a big lass...


    Ye'll oft see her doon at Sandgate
    When the fresh herring comes in
    She's like a bagful o sawdust
    Tied round with string
    She wears big galoshes
    And her stockings was once white
    An her bedgown it's lilac
    An her hat's nivva straight.

    CHORUS
    She's a big lass...


    When I axed her to marry us
    She started to laugh
    "Noo, Nyen o' yer monkey tricks
    For Aa like nee sic chaff"
    Then she started abubblin'
    An roared like a bull
    An the cheps on the Keel sez
    Aa's nowt but a fyeul

    CHORUS
    She's a big lass...


    She sez "The chep that gets us
    He'll heh te work ivvery day
    An when he comes hyem at neet
    He'll need to gan an seek clay.
    An when he awa' seekin it
    Aall myek baals an sing
    O weel may the keel row
    That my laddie's in."

    CHORUS
    She's a big lass...
