    O Lucky Man!
    Album: O Lucky Man. Posted by hollyh


    If you have a friend on whom you think you can rely
    You are a lucky man
    If you've found the reason to live on and not to die
    You are a lucky man!
    Preachers and poets and scholars don't know it,
    Temples and statues and steeples won't show it,
    If you've got the secret just try not to blow it
    Stay a lucky man!

    If you've found the meaning of the truth in this old world
    You are a lucky man!
    If knowledge hangs around your neck like pearls instead of chains
    You are a lucky man!
    Takers and fakers and talkers won't tell you.
    Teachers and preachers will just buy and sell you.
    When no one can tempt you with heaven or hell-
    You'll be a lucky man!

    You'll be better by far
    To be just what you are -
    You can be what you want
    If you are what you are
    - And that's a lucky man!


    ***
    This is the slightly different version that Alan sings at the end of the O Lucky Man! film



    If you have a friend on whom you think you can rely
    You are a lucky man
    If you've found the reason to live on and not to die
    You are a lucky man!
    Preachers and poets and scholars don't know it,
    Temples and statues and steeples won't show it,
    If you've got the secret just try not to blow it
    Stay a lucky man!

    Because on and on and on and on we go
    Around the world in circles turning
    Earning what we can
    While others dance away
    The chance to light your day
    So you know that if you have a friend
    on whom you think you can rely
    You are a lucky man!
    And if you've found the reason to live on and not to die
    You are a lucky man!
    You know the preachers and the poets and the scholars don't know it
    And the temples and statues and steeples won't show it
    If you've got the secret just try not to blow it
    Stay a lucky man, stay a lucky man!

    And it's around and round and round and round and round we go
    And it's around the world in circles turning
    Earning what we can
    While others dance away the chance to light a day -
    So it's on and on and on and on and on
    'Round the world in circles turning
    Earning what we can
    While others dance away the chance to light a day.

    On This Side of Goodbye
    by Gerry Goffin and Carole King
    Album: A Price On His Head. Posted by hollyh


    I 've had my taste of independence
    Since the day I set you free
    Now I don't bear the least resemblance
    To the man I used to be
    But baby
    Things look much different now
    On this side of goodbye
    Can't you feel it in your heart somehow
    To give our love just one more try

    I thought I knew just what I wanted
    When I left you standing there
    But now each night my soul is haunted
    By those dreams we used to share
    But baby
    Things look much different now
    On this side of goodbye
    Can't you feel it in your heart somehow
    To give our love just one more try

    I've got to find a way to make you pay
    I've got to reach you somehow and make you see
    My father said I've already paid a little too dearly
    So baby don't you make me hurt for as long as I live

    Things look much different now
    On this side of goodbye
    Can't you feel it in your heart somehow
    To give our love just one more try

    I've got to find a way
    I've got to find a way...

    Over And Over Again
    Album: Savaloy Dip. Posted by JJean


    He goes out looking for fun but he always finds trouble
    Around every corner is somebody bursting his bubble
    His heart's in the right place if only his head were the same
    Who can blame him for making the same mistake
    Making the same mistake
    Making the same mistake
    Over and over, and over and over
    And over and over again.

    He took a job laying bricks after six earning double
    Every morning he woke up and broke up the rubble
    His heart's in the right place if only his head were the same
    Who can blame him for making the same mistake
    Making the same mistake
    Making the same mistake
    Over and over, and over and over
    And over and over again.

    Alone in his cosy room, nobody there
    No-one to care for him, Oh dear me
    What a terrible place to be.


    He goes out looking for fun but he always finds trouble
    Around every corner is somebody bursting his bubble
    His heart's in the right place if only his head were the same
    Who can blame him for making the same mistake
    Making the same mistake
    Making the same mistake
    Over and over, and over and over
    And over and over again.
    Ooooooooooh! Over and over and over and over
    And over and over again!
