Jim Croce - Bad Bad Leroy Brown

Well the south side of chicago
Is the baddest part of town
And if you go down there
You better just beware
Of a man named leroy brown

Now leroy more than trouble
You see he stand íbout six foot four
All the downtown ladies call him treetop lover
All the mens just call him sir

And itís bad, bad leroy brown
The baddest man in the whole damn town
Badder than old king kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog

Now leroy he a gambler
And he like his fancy clothes
And he like to wave his diamond rings
In front of everybodyís nose
He got a custom continental
He got an eldorado too
He got a 32 gun in his pocket for fun
He got a razor in his shoe

And itís bad, bad leroy brown
The baddest man in the whole damn town
Badder than old king kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog

Well friday bout a week ago
Leroy shootiní dice
And at the edge of the bar
Sat a girl named doris
And ooh that girl looked nice
Well he cast his eyes upon her
And the trouble soon began
And leroy brown learned a lesson
íbout messiní with the wife of a jealous man

And itís bad, bad leroy brown
The baddest man in the whole damned town
Badder than old king kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog,

Well the two men took to fightiní
And when they pulled them from the floor
Leroy looked like a jigsaw puzzle
With a couple of pieces gone

And itís bad, bad leroy brown
The baddest man in the whole damn town
Badder than old king kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog

Whoo!

In the corners of mind
I just can't seem to find a reason to believe
That I can break free
Cause you see I have been down for so long
Feel like the hope is gone
But as I lift my hands, I understand
That I should praise you through my circumstance

Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance

You broke the chains now I can lift my hands
And I'm gonna praise you

Everything that could go wrong
All went wrong at one time
So much pressure fell on me
I thought I was gon lose my mind
But I know you wanna see
If I will hold on through these trials
But I need you to lift this load
Cause I can't take it anymore

Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise you
I just wanna praise you
You broke the chains now I can lift my hands
And I'm gonna praise you
I'm gonna praise you

Been through the fire and the rain
Bound in every kind of way
But God has broken every chain
So let me go right now

Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise you
I just wanna praise you
You broke the chains now I can lift my hands
And I'm gonna praise you
I'm gonna praise you

Take them off
What'cha gonna do, yeah

Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise you
I just wanna praise you
You broke the chains now I can lift my hands
And I'm gonna praise you
I'm gonna praise you

Frankie Valli - Can't Take My Eyes Off You

You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off you.
You'd be like Heaven to touch.
I wanna hold you so much.
At long last love has arrived
And I thank God I'm alive.
You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off you.

Pardon the way that I stare.
There's nothing else to compare.
The sight of you leaves me weak.
There are no words left to speak,
But if you feel like I feel,
Please let me know that it's real.
You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off you.

I love you, baby,
And if it's quite alright,
I need you, baby,
To warm a lonely night.
I love you, baby.
Trust in me when I say:
Oh, pretty baby,
Don't bring me down, I pray.
Oh, pretty baby, now that I found you, stay
And let me love you, baby.
Let me love you.

You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off you.
You'd be like Heaven to touch.
I wanna hold you so much.
At long last love has arrived
And I thank God I'm alive.
You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off you.

I love you, baby,
And if it's quite alright,
I need you, baby,
To warm a lonely night.
I love you, baby.
Trust in me when I say:
Oh, pretty baby,
Don't bring me down, I pray.
Oh, pretty baby, now that I found you, stay..

En Vogue - My Lovin'

No, you're never gonna get it (Ow!)
Never ever gonna get it (No, not this time)
No, you're never gonna get it (My love)
Never ever gonna get it
No, you're never gonna get it (Ow!)
Never ever gonna get it (No, not this time)
No, you're never gonna get it (My love)
Never ever gonna get it

I remember how it used to be
You never was this nice, you can't fool me
Now you talkin' like you made a change
The more you talk, the more things sound the same
What makes you think you can just walk back into her life
Without a good fight? Oh...
I just sit back and watch you make a fool of yourself
Cuz you're just wasting your time, oh...

No, you're never gonna get it (Not this time)
Never ever gonna get it (My lovin')
No, you're never gonna get it (Had your chance to make a change)
Never ever gonna get it
No, you're never gonna get it (Not this time)
Never ever gonna get it (My lovin')
No, you're never gonna get it (Had your chance to make a change)
Never ever gonna get it

Now you promise me the moon and stars
Save your breath, you won't get very far
Gave you many chances to make change
The only thing you changed was love to hate
It doesn't matter what you do or what you say
She doesn't love you, no way
Maybe next time you'll give your woman a little respect
So you won't be hearing her say

Earth, Wind & Fire - Got To Get You Into My Life

Got to get you into my life, into my life
Got to get you into my life, into my life
Got to get you into my life, into my life
Got to get you into my life, into my life
Got to get you into my life, into my life

I was alone, I took a ride
I didn't know what I would find there.
Another road where maybe
I could see another sign there.
Ooh, then I suddenly see you.
Ooh, and did I tell you I need you
Ev'ry single day of my life?

You didn't run, you didn't lie
You know I want to hold you.
And had you gone you knew in time
We'd meet again for I had told you.
Ooh, you were meant to be near me.
Ooh, I really want for you to hear me
Say we'll be together ev'ry day.

Got to get you into my life.
Got to get you in, got to get you into my life
Got to get you into my life
Got to get you into my life

Ooh, then I suddenly see you.
Ooh, and did I tell you that I need you
Ev'ry single day of my life?

Got to get you into my life.
Got to get you in, got to get you into my life
Got to get you into my life
Got to get you into my life

Got to get you in, got to get you in
Got to get you in, got to get you in
Into my life
Got to get you into my life

Ella Fitzgerald - Dream A Little Dream

Stars shining bright above you.
Night breezes seem to whisper, 'I love you,'
Birds singing in the sycamore tree.
Dream a little dream of me.

Say nighty-night and kiss me.
Just hold me tight and tell me you'll miss me.
While I'm alone and blue as can be,
Dream a little dream of me.

Stars fading, but I linger on, dear,
Still craving your kiss.
I'm longing to linger 'till dawn, dear,
Just saying this:

Sweet dreams 'till sunbeams find you,
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you.
But in your dreams, whatever they be.
Dream a little dream of me.

Shola Ama - You Might Need Somebody

When somebody
Reaches for your heart
Open up and let them through
'Cause everybody
Needs someone around
Things can tumble down on you

You'll discover
When you look around
You don't have to be alone
Just one lover
Is all you need to know
When you're feeling all alone, oh

You might need somebody
You might need somebody too, ooh
(You might need somebody too)
You might need somebody
You might need somebody too, ooh
(You might need somebody too)

If there's a fire
Stirring in your heart
And you're sure it's strong and right
Keep it burning
Through the cold and dark
It can warm the lonely nights, oh

You might need somebody
You might need somebody too, ooh
(You might need somebody too)
You might need somebody
You might need somebody too, ooh
(You might need somebody too)

Boy, you might need somebody too
(Need somebody) yeah
Oh, you're gonna need somebody too, ooh
(Need somebody) yeah, yeah
You might need somebody too, baby
(Need somebody) know I do
I know I do (need somebody) too

Nat King Cole - Straighten Up And Fly Right

The buzzard took the monkey for a ride in the air
The monkey thought that everything was on the square
The buzzard tried to throw the monkey off his back
The monkey grabbed his neck and said now listen, jack

Straighten up and fly right
Straighten up and fly right
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down, papa, donít you blow your top.
Ainít no use in jiviní
Whatís the use in dabbiní
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down, papa, donít you blow your top.

The buzzard told the monkey youíre chokiní me
Release your hold and Iíll set you free
The monkey looked the buzzard right dead in the eye and said
Your storyís fetchiní but it sounds like a lie

Straighten up and fly right
Straighten up and do right
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down, papa, donít you blow your top.

Straighten up and fly right
Straighten up and do right
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down, papa, donít you blow your top.
