    DANCE ti' th' DADDY
    Album: Geordie Roots and Branches. Posted by Diana

    Come here, maw little Jacky,
    Now aw've smoked mi backy,
    Let's hev a bit o' cracky,
    Till the boat comes in.

    Chorus:
    Dance ti' thy daddy, sing ti' thy mammy,
    Dance ti' thy daddy, ti' thy mammy sing;
    Thou shall hev a fishy on a little dishy,
    Thou shall hev a fishy when the boat comes in.

    Here's thy mother humming,
    Like a canny woman;
    Yonder comes thy father,
    Drunk - he cannot stand.

    Chorus:
    Dance ti' thy daddy, sing ti' thy mammy,
    Dance ti' thy daddy, ti' thy mammy sing;
    Thou shall hev a fishy on a little dishy,
    Thou shall hev a haddock when the boat comes in.

    Our Tommy's always fuddling,
    He's so fond of ale,
    But he's kind to me,
    I hope he'll never fail.

    Chorus:
    Dance ti' thy daddy, sing ti' thy mammy,
    Dance ti' thy daddy, ti' thy mammy sing;
    Thou shall hev a fishy on a little dishy,
    Thou shall hev a bloater when the boat comes in.

    I like a drop mysel',
    When I can get it sly,
    And thou, my bonny bairn,
    Will lik't as well as I.

    Chorus:
    Dance ti' thy daddy, sing ti' thy mammy,
    Dance ti' thy daddy, ti' thy mammy sing;
    Thou shall hev a fishy on a little dishy,
    Thou shall hev a mackerel when the boat comes in.

    May we get a drop,
    Oft as we stand in need;
    And weel may the keel row
    That brings the bairns their bread.

    Chorus:
    Dance ti' thy daddy, sing ti' thy mammy,
    Dance ti' thy daddy, ti' thy mammy sing;
    Thou shall hev a fishy on a little dishy,
    Thou shall hev a salmon when the boat comes in.

    Days Like These
    Album: Liberty. Posted by Jean


    Why should I work
    Why should I work so hard
    Who am I working for
    I feel like running away
    As they knock on my door
    Why should I work
    Why should I work so hard
    Who am I tryin’ to please
    I am locked in this chain
    And I can’t get no relief
    No relief
    Days like these
    Make me want to give in
    Days like these
    How can I ever win
    Days like these
    I am only a man
    Days like these
    Doing the best I can
    What can I do
    What can I say
    Oh no
    When will they ever learn
    How can I carry on
    Spending more that I earn
    Got no money to burn
    Days like these
    Make me want to give in
    Days like these
    How can I ever win
    Days like these
    I am only a man
    Days like these
    Trying to do the best I can

    Any way you want that way
    Don’t say you’re going to walk out on me
    Now your taking every p
    Know what you get is what you see
    What you get is me
    Days like these
    I’m just trying to survive
    Days like these
    I’m just staying alive
    Days like these
    I am only a man
    Trying to do the best I can

    Why should I work so hard
    Who am I working for
    I think I’m gonna run away
    Why should I work
    Why should I work
    Why should I work

    Do It Now
    Album: Based On A True Story. Posted by hollyh

    How many times have you told yourself
    To make that call and hang the consequences
    That you imagine would ensue
    If you apologize

    Never leave it till it's too late
    Never leave it till it's too late
    Never leave it till it's too late
    Do it now

    It's no sacrifice to give
    A little more than you intended
    At the time your sense of self was bruised
    Beyond demanding process

    Never leave it till it's too late
    Never leave it till it's too late
    Never leave it till it's too late
    Do it now

    The inner child in you can grow up
    When memories are finally defeated
    Beat up, rolled up, and thrown out
    Those mixed-up words and pictures of your private movies
    They must be deleted, rephrased, erased, and blown out

    How many times have you told yourself
    She's far too good, I don't deserve it?
    Knowing you're afraid to fail
    Your own idea of love don't deserve it.

    Never leave it till it's too late
    Never leave it till it's too late
    Never leave it till it's too late
    Do it now

    The inner child in you can grow up
    When memories are finally defeated
    Beat up, rolled up, and thrown out
    Those mixed-up words and pictures of your private movies
    They must be deleted, rephrased, erased, and blown out

    How many times have you told yourself
    To make that call and hang the consequences
    That you imagine would ensue
    If you apologize

    Never leave it till it's too late
    Never leave it till it's too late
    Never leave it till it's too late
    Do it now
    Do it now
    Do it now
    Do it now....

    Don't Do That Again
    Album: A Price On His Head. POsted by hollyh


    Don't do that again
    Filling my head with tears and pain
    Don't try sneaking away
    Having yourself a secret date
    I can take a little but not much more
    I'm not used to keeping an open door
    You do it again and there's trouble in store

    You make me worry
    You make me sweat
    Stop that smile, I ain't finished yet
    I've given you all I've got to give
    Just give me the right to live
    I can take a little but not much more
    I'm not used to keeping an open door
    Do it again and there's trouble in store

    I've given you all I've got to give
    Just give me the right to live
    You make me worry, you make me sweat
    I said stop that smile I ain't finished yet
    La la la la la la la la la ...

    Don't do that again
    Filling my head with tears and pain
    Don't try sneaking away
    Having yourself a secret date
    I can take a little but not much more
    I'm not used to keeping an open door
    You do it again and there's trouble in store

    Don't Stop the Carnival
    By Rollins; arr. Price
    Posted by hollyh


    No don't stop the carnival
    You'll never find a better way
    No don't stop the carnival
    To sing the night and day away
    No don't stop the carnival

    Sunshine I'm only dreamin'
    Sunshine I'm only dreamin'

    You'll never find a better way
    No don't stop the carnival
    You'll have to sing the night and day away
    No don't stop the carnival

    Sunshine I'm only dreamin'
    Sunshine I'm only dreamin'

    But this is England on a winter's afternoon
    There is no sun, there's just the pale and tired moon
    Shivering sparrows on the smoky chimney tops
    And all the children suffer from cold, and flu, and raindrops

    No don't stop the carnival
    No don't stop the carnival
    You'll never find a better way
    No don't stop the carnival
    To sing the night and day away
    No don't stop the carnival

    Sunshine I'm only dreamin'
    Sunshine I'm only dreamin'
    D-d-d-d- I'm only dreamin'
    D-d-d-d- I'm only dreamin'...

    Don't Try
    Album: Shouts Accross The Street. Posted by hollyh

    You were always good at showing tears
    I've learned how you do it through the years
    I was caught before and you made me change my mind
    Now please don't try to stop me
    I'm never gonna stay behind

    Don't try to make me change my mind
    Don't try, I'm leaving it all behind
    'Cos I've seen what I have to see
    That a wrong's been done to me

    Now you try to tell me all along
    You knew I was doing wrong
    Well, shame on you
    Shame on you
    Now you want me to stay by your side
    Keep you loved and satisfied
    It's too late
    It's too late

    I'm leaving now, now, leaving now
    I'm leaving now, leaving now, leaving now

    So don't try to make me change my mind
    Don't try, I'm leaving it all behind
    'Cos I've seen what I have to see
    That a wrong's been done to me

    Please don't try to unpack my bags
    I'd rather walk around in rags
    'Cos it's all down to you
    It's down to you
    Please believe me when I say
    I'd rather watch a football game than look at you
    Look at you

    Don't try to make me change my mind
    Don't try, I'm leaving it all behind
    'Cos I've seen what I have to see
    That a wrong's been done to me
    That a wrong's been done to me
    That a wrong's been done to me

    Double Love
    Album: Liberty. Posted by Jean


    In this new situation
    I seem very shaky
    And that’s not the usual way I am
    When I’m under pressure
    And you are responsible for my reaction
    I’m so substantially more
    Than the man I was previously
    One into two gives you a double love
    One into two gives you double share

    I was solidly single
    I cherished my independence
    And I don’t share very easily
    The darkest secrets in me
    And you are responsible for my reaction
    I’m so substantially more
    Than the man I was previously
    One into two gives you a double love
    One into two gives you a double share

    Oh ! You are responsible for my reaction
    I’m so substantially more
    Than the man I was previously
    One into two gives you a double love
    One into two gives you a double share
    One into two gives you a double love
    One into two gives you a double share
