Forever and always - Shania Twain


only registered users can see external links


In your arms, I can still feel the way you
Want me when you hold me
I can still hear the words you whispered
When you told me
I can stay right here FOREVER in your arms
And there ain't no way
I'm lettin' you go now
And there ain't no way
And there ain't no how
I'll never see that day
'Cause I'm keeping you
FOREVER and for always
We will be together all of our days
Want to wake up every
Morning to your sweet face, always
Mm, baby
In your heart, I can still hear
A beat for every time you kiss me
And when we're apart,
I know how much you miss me
I can feel your love for me in your heart
And there ain't no way
I'm lettin' you go now
And there ain't now way
And there ain't no how
I'll never see that day
'Cause I'm keeping you
FOREVER and for always
We will be together all of our days
Want to wake up every
Morning to your sweet face, always
In your eyes (I can still see the look of the one)
I can still see the look of the one who really loves me
(I can still feel the way that you want)
The one who wouldn't put anything
Else in the world above me (I can still see love for me)
I can still see love for me in your eyes (I still see the love)
And there ain't no way
I'm lettin' you go now
And there ain't no way
And there ain't no how
I'll never see that day
'Cause I'm keeping you
FOREVER and for always
We will be together all of our days
Want to wake up every
Morning to your sweet face, always
I'm keeping you
FOREVER and for always
We will be together all of our days
Want to wake up every
Morning to your sweet face
I'm keeping you FOREVER and for always
I'm keeping you FOREVER
Got to keep you, baby
FOREVER, in your arms

Your lips, your eyes, your soft sweet sights
I feel that I've known you forever
Your style, your touch, you're just too much

Don't have to see anymore than I see
Your face so rare, beyond compare
I feel that I've known you FOREVER
And ever and ever

Hopelessly devoted to you - Olivia Newton John


only registered users can see external links


Guess mine is not the FIRST heart broken
My eyes are not the FIRST to cry
I'm not the first to know there's
Just no getting over you
You know I'm just a fool who's willing
To sit around and wait for you
But baby can't you see there's nothing else for me to do
I'm hopelessly devoted to you
But now there's no way to hide
Since you pushed my love aside
I'm outta my head hopelessly devoted to you
Hopelessly devoted to you
Hopelessly devoted to you
My head is saying fool forget him
My heart is saying don't let go
Hold on to the end, that's what I intend to do
I'm hopelessly devoted to you
But now there's no way to hide
Since you pushed my love aside
I'm outta my head hopelessly devoted to you
Hopelessly devoted to you
Hopelessly devoted to you

The first in line - Elvis


only registered users can see external links


When they gave out eyes like diamonds
That would shame the stars that shine
My darlin' my darlin'
You were the FIRST in line
When they gave out lips like honey
That hold a new thrill every time
My darlin' my darlin'
You were the FIRST in line

There may be others
that know you longer
Who pledge their hearts to you
But there's no other
could love you stronger
Any stronger than I do
Don't refuse me, say you'll choose me
I'm yours, oh please be mine
My darlin' say I'm your darlin'
The FIRST, and the last in line

Word of the day for Friday December 13th - FIRST
--------------------------------------- added after 5 hours

The First of May = The Bee Gees


only registered users can see external links


When I was small, and Christmas trees were tall
We used to love while others used to play
Don't ask me why, but time has passed us by
Some one else moved in from far away
Now we are tall, and Christmas trees are small
And you don't ask the time of day
But you and I, our love will never die
But guess we'll cry come FIRST of May
The apple tree that grew for you and me
I watched the apples falling one by one
And I recall the moment of them all
The day I kissed your cheek and you were mine
Now we are tall, and Christmas trees are small
And you don't ask the time of day
But you and I, our love will never die
But guess we'll cry come FIRST of May
When I was small, and Christmas trees were tall
Do do do do do do do do do
Don't ask me why, but time has passed us by
Some one else moved in from far away

I canít stand the rain - Tina Turner


only registered users can see external links


I can't STAND the rain
Against my window
Bringing back sweet memories
I can't stand the rain
Against my window
'Cause he ain't here with me
Hey window pane
Tell me, do you remember
How sweet it used to be
When we were together
Everything was so grand
Now that we've parted
There's just one sound
That I just can't stand
I can't stand the rain
Against my window
Bringing back sweet memories
I can't stand the rain
Against my window
'Cause he ain't here with me
When we were together
Everything was so grand
Now that we've parted
There's just one thing
That I just can't stand
Can't stand the rain
I can't stand the rain
Against my window
Bringing back sweet memories
I can't stand the rain
Against my window
'Cause he ain't here with me
When we were together
Everything was so grand
Yeah now you got the sweet memories
But there's just one song
That I just can't stand
I can't stand the rain
Against my window
Bringing back sweet memories
I can't stand the rain
Against my window
That just keeps on haunting me
Hey hey rain
Get off of my window
'Cause he ain't here with me
'Cause I can't stand the rain
Against my window
Bringing back sweet memories

STAND Up For Your Love Rights
Stand up for your love rights
Stand up for your love rights
Do it, do it, do it, do it
Now don't be afraid
Don't let things stand in your way
Now you've reached a time in your life
When you just can't take no more
Are you ready to leave
'Cos you can no longer breathe
You can't hide or disguise
What it is that you want to change
Don't hold back
Make up your mind
Don't hold back
Stand up for your love rights
And don't you feel ashamed
Stand up for your love rights
Do it, do it, do it, do it
Now don't take what you don't want
Just take what you need
It's your right, don't be frightened to fight it
Take your time to choose
Yeah, when you're ready to leave
Make up your mind and believe
Don't you run from the truth
It's no use, 'cos it's all you'll need
Don't hold back
Make up your mind
Don't hold back
Stand up for your love rights and enjoy it
Stand up for your love rights

I saw her standing there- The Beatles


only registered users can see external links


Well, she was just seventeen
You know what I mean
And the way she looked
Was way beyond compare
So how could I dance with another
Ooh, when I saw her STANDING there?
Well, she looked at me
And I, I could see
That before too long
I'd fall in love with her
She wouldn't dance with another
Ooh, when I saw her standing there
Well, my heart went "boom"
When I crossed that room
And I held her hand in mine
Oh we danced through the night
And we held each other tight
And before too long
I fell in love with her
Now I'll never dance with another
Ooh, since I saw her standing there
Well, my heart went, "Boom"
When I crossed that room
And I held her hand in mine
Oh, we danced through the night
And we held each other tight
And before too long
I fell in love with her
Now I'll never dance with another
Oh, since I saw her standing there
Oh, since I saw her standing there
Yeah, well since I saw her standing there

Stand and deliver - Adam and the Ants


only registered users can see external links


STAND and deliver!
I'm the dandy highwayman who you're too scared to mention
I spend my cash on looking flash and grabbing your attention
The devil take your stereo and your record collection! (oh-oh)
The way you look you'll qualify for next year's old age pension!
Stand and deliver your money or your life!
Try and use a mirror no bullet or a knife!
I'm the dandy highwayman so sick of easy fashion
The clumsy boots, peek-a-boo roots that people think so dashing
So what's the point of robbery when nothing is worth taking? (oh oh)
It's kind of tough to tell a scruff the big mistake he's making
Stand and deliver your money or your life!
Try and use a mirror no bullet or a knife!
And even though you fool your soul
Your conscience will be mine
All mine
We're the dandy highwaymen so tired of excuses
Of deep meaning philosophies where only showbiz loses
We're the dandy highwaymen and here's our invitation (oh oh)
"Throw your safety overboard and join our insect nation"
Stand and deliver your money or your life!
Try and use a mirror no bullet or a knife!
And even though you fool your soul
Your conscience will be mine
All mine
Qua qua da diddley qua qua da diddley
Qua qua da diddley qua qua da diddley
Stand and deliver your money or your life!
Stand and deliver your money or your life!
(repeat til end)

Iíll never stand in your way - Elvis


only registered users can see external links


If you found someone new who means more than me to you.
I'd never STAND in your way
If you feel we must part, don't let pity rule your heart
I'll never stand in your way
I love you much too much to ever lose you
But what is to be will be and I'll obey
I'll be blue when you go but I'll never let it show.
I'd never stand in your way
I loved you much too much to ever lose you
But what is to be will be and I'll obey
I'll be blue when you go but I'll never let it show

Ok the original was by The Pretenders but the Girls Aloud came to mind first.

Oh, Why You Look So Sad?
Tears are in your eyes
Come on and come to me now
Donít be ashamed to cry
Let me see you through
ícause Iíve seen the dark side too
When the night falls on you
You donít know what to do
Nothing you confess
Could make me love you less

Iíll STAND by you
Iíll stand by you
Wonít let nobody hurt you
Iíll stand by you

So if youíre mad, get mad
Donít hold it all inside
Come on and talk to me now
Hey, what you got to hide?
I get angry too
Well Iím a lot like you
When youíre standing at the crossroads
And donít know which path to choose
Let me come along
ícause even if youíre wrong

Iíll stand by you
Iíll stand by you
Wonít let nobody hurt you
Iíll stand by you
Take me in, into your darkest hour
And Iíll never desert you
Iíll stand by you

And when...
When the night falls on you, baby
Youíre feeling all alone
You wonít be on your own

Iíll stand by you
Iíll stand by you
Wonít let nobody hurt you

Iíll stand by you
Take me in, into your darkest hour
And Iíll never desert you
Iíll stand by you
Iíll stand by you
Wonít let nobody hurt you
Iíll stand by you
Wonít let nobody hurt you
Iíll stand by you

Youíre the reason Iím living - Elvis

only registered users can see external links


You're the REASON I'm livin'
You're the breath that I take
You're the stars in my heaven
You're the sun when I wake
You're the reason I'm livin'
Oh, you carry me through
All of life's little burdens
I'd be lost without you
A long, long time ago
When I was down
Oh, you picked me up and showed me
True love still could be found
You're the reason I do things
You're the things that I do
You're the reason I'm livin'
I'd be lost without you
Come and tell me again.....
You're The Reason I'm Livin'
Oh, you carry me through
All of life's little burdens
I'd be lost without you.

Love me for a reason - The Osmonds


only registered users can see external links


Girl when you hold me, how you control me
You bend and you fold me, anyway you please
It must be easy for you, the loving things that you do
But just a pastime for you, I could never be
And I never know, girl
If I should stay or go
'Cos the games that you play
Keep driving me away
Don't love me for fun, girl
Let me be the one, girl
Love me for a REASON
Let the reason be love
Don't love me for fun, girl
Let me be the one, girl
Love me for a reason
Let the reason be love
Kisses and caresses, are only minor tests, babe
Of love lead to stresses, between a woman and a man
So if love everlasting, isn't what you're asking
I'll have to pass, girl, I'm proud to take a stand
I can't continue guessing
Because it's only messing
With my pride and my mind
So write down this time to time
Don't love me for fun, girl
Let me be the one, girl
Love me for a reason
Let the reason be love
I'm just a little old-fashioned
It's take more than physical attraction
My initial reaction is honey give me love
Not a facsimile of
Don't love me for fun, girl
Let me be the one, girl
Love me for a reason
Let the reason be love
Don't love me for fun, girl
Let me be the one, girl
Love me for a reason
Let the reason be love (love me, love me)
Don't love me for fun, girl
Let me be the one, girl
Love me for a reason
Let the reason be love

Reason to believe - Glen Campbell

only registered users can see external links


If I listened long enough to you
I'd find a way
To believe that its all true
Knowing that you lied straight faced
While I cried
Still I look to find a REASON to believe
If I gave you time to change my mind
I'd find a way
And I'd leave the past behind
Knowing that you lied straight faced
While I cried
Still I look to find a reason to believe
Someone like you
Makes it hard to live without
Somebody else
Someone like you
Makes it easy to give
Never thinkin' of myself
If I listened long enough to you
I'd find a way
To believe that its all true
Knowing that you lied straight faced
While I cried
Still I looked to find a reason to belie-ie-ieve
In you...

Get off of my cloud - Rolling Stones


only registered users can see external links


I live in an apartment on the ninety-ninth floor of my block
And I sit at home looking out the window
Imagining the world has stopped
Then in flies a guy who's all dressed up just like a Union Jack
And says, "I've won five pounds if I have his kind of detergent pack"
I says, "hey, you, GET off of my cloud
Hey, you, GET off of my cloud
Hey, you, GET off of my cloud
Don't hang around 'cause two's a crowd
On my cloud, baby"
The telephone is ringing
I say, "hi, it's me, who is there on the line?"
A voice says, "hi, hello, how are you?"
"Well, I guess I'm doin' fine"
He says, "it's three a.m., there's too much noise
Don't you people ever want to go to bed?
Just 'cause you feel so good
Do you have to drive me out of my head?"
I says, "hey, you, GET off of my cloud
Hey, you, GET off of my cloud
Hey, you, GET off of my cloud
Don't hang around 'cause two's a crowd
On my cloud, baby, yeah"
I was sick and tired, fed up with this
And decided to take a drive downtown
It was so very quiet and peaceful
There was nobody, not a soul around
I laid myself out, I was so tired
And I started to dream
In the morning the parking tickets were just
Like a flag stuck on my window screen
I says, "hey, you, GET off of my cloud
Hey, you, GET off of my cloud
Hey, you, GET off of my cloud
Don't hang around 'cause two's a crowd
On my cloud, baby"
"Hey, you, GET off of my cloud
Hey, you, GET off of my cloud
Hey, you, GET off of my cloud
Don't hang around 'cause two's a crowd
On my cloud, hey, you

It's GETTING better all the time
I used to get mad at my school (No, I can't complain)
The teachers who taught me weren't cool (No, I can't complain)
You're holding me down

A little better all the time (It can't get no worse)
I have to admit it's GETTING better (Better)
It's GETTING better
Since you've been mine
Me used to be angry young man
Me hiding me head in the sand
You gave me the word, I finally heard
I'm doing the best that I can
I've got to admit it's GETTING better (Better)
A little better all the time (It can't get no worse)
I have to admit it's GETTING better (Better)
It's GETTING better
Since you've been mine
GETTING so much better all the time!
It's GETTING better all the time
Better, better, better
It's GETTING better all the time
Better, better, better

I beat her and kept her apart from the things that she loved
Man, I was mean but I'm changing my scene
And I'm doing the best that I can (ooh)
I admit it's GETTING better (Better)
A little better all the time (It can't get no worse)
Yes, I admit it's GETTING better (Better)

In the wee small hours of the morning - Frank Sinatra


only registered users can see external links


In the wee small hours of the morning,
While the whole wide world is fast asleep,
You lie awake and think about the girl
And never, ever think of COUNTING sheep.

When your lonely heart has learned its lesson,
You'd be hers if only she would call,
In the wee small hours of the morning,
That's the time you miss her most of all.

[Musical interlude]

When your lonely heart has learned its lesson,
You'd be hers if only she would call,
In the wee small hours of the morning,
That's the time you miss her most of all.

Jake the Peg - Rolf Harris


only registered users can see external links


I'm Jake the Peg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
With my extra leg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
Wherever I go through rain and snow
The people always let me know
There's Jake the peg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
With his extra leg, diddle-iddle-iddle
The day that I born (oh boy) my father nearly died
He couldn't get my nappies on, how matter how he tried
'cause I was born with an extra leg, and since that day begun
I had to learn to stand on my own three feet
Believe me that's no fun
I'm Jake the Peg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
With my extra leg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
Wherever I go through rain and snow
The people always let me know
There's Jake the peg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
With his extra leg, diddle-iddle-iddle
I had a dreadful childhood really, I s'pose I shouldn't moan
Each time they had a three legged race, I won it on me own
And also I got popular, when came the time for cricket
They used to roll my trousers up
And use me for the wicket
I'm Jake the Peg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
With my extra leg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
Wherever I go through rain and snow
The people always let me know
There's Jake the peg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
With his extra leg, diddle-iddle-iddle
I was a dreadful scholar, I found all the lessons hard
The only thing I knew for sure, was three feet make a yard
To COUNT to ten I used me fingers, if I needed more
By getting my shoes and socks off
I could COUNT to twenty four
I'm Jake the [stops to COUNT]
...to twenty five
I'm Jake the peg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
With my extra leg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
Whatever I did they said was false
They said "quick march" I did the quick waltz
Then they shouted at me "put your best foot forward" - but which foot?
I said "it's very fine for you, you only got a choice of two"
But me, I'm Jake the Peg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
With the extra leg... diddle-iddle-iddle-um

THE GAMBLER lyrics

On a warm summer's eve
On a train bound for nowhere
I met up with the gambler
We were both too tired to sleep
So we took turns a-starin'
Out the window at the darkness
The boredom overtook us,
And he began to speak
He said, "Son, I've made a life
Out of readin' people's faces
Knowin' what the cards were
By the way they held their eyes
So if you don't mind me sayin'
I can see you're out of aces
For a taste of your whiskey
I'll give you some advice"
So I handed him my bottle
And he drank down my last swallow
Then he bummed a cigarette
And asked me for a light
And the night got deathly quiet
And his faced lost all expression
He said, "If you're gonna play the game, boy
You gotta learn to play it right
You've got to know when to hold 'em
Know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away
And know when to run
You never COUNT your money
When you're sittin' at the table
There'll be time enough for countin'
When the dealin's done
Every gambler knows
That the secret to survivin'
Is knowin' what to throw away
And knowin' what to keep
'Cause every hand's a winner
And every hand's a loser
And the best that you can hope for is to die
in your sleep
And when he finished speakin'
He turned back toward the window
Crushed out his cigarette
And faded off to sleep
And somewhere in the darkness
The gambler he broke even
But in his final words
I found an ace that I could keep
You've got to know when to hold 'em
Know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away
And know when to run
You never count your money
When you're sittin' at the table
There'll be time enough for countin'
When the dealin's done
You've got to know when to hold 'em (when to hold 'em)
Know when to fold 'em (when to fold 'em)
Know when to walk away
And know when to run
You never count your money
When you're sittin' at the table
There'll be time enough for countin'
When the dealin's done
You've got to know when to hold 'em
Know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away
And know when to run
You never count your money
When you're sittin' at the table
There'll be time enough for countin'
When the dealin's done

I close my eyes and count to ten - Dusty Springfield


only registered users can see external links


It isn't the way that you look
And it isn't the way that you talk
It isn't the things that you say or do
Make me want you so
It is nothing to do with the wine
Or the music that's flooding my mind
But never before have I been so sure
You're the someone I dreamed I would find
It's the way you make me feel
The moment I am close to you
It's a feeling so unreal
Somehow I can't believe it's true
The pounding I feel in my heart
The hoping that we'll never part
I can't believe this is really happening to me
I close my eyes and COUNT to ten
And when I open them you're still here
I close my eyes and count again
I can't believe it but you're still here
We were strangers a moment ago
With a few dreams but nothing to show
The world was a place with a frown on its face
And tomorrow was just, I don't know
But the way you make me feel
The moment I am close to you
Makes today seem so unreal
Somehow I can't believe it's true
Tomorrow, will you still be here?
Tomorrow will come but I fear
That what is happening to me is only a dream
I close my eyes and count to ten
And when I open them you're still here
I close my eyes and count again
I can't believe it but you're still here
I close my eyes and count to ten
And when I open them, you're still here

Iím counting on you - Elvis

All the words that I let her know
Still could not say
How much I need you so in every way
I hope you will guide me
As only you can do
Hold my hands down beside me
I'm COUNTING on you
I'm counting on you dear
From the dawn of each day
To always come through dear
In your kind lovin' way
If you knew just how deeply
I feel things you do
Then you know how completely
I'm counting on you
I'm counting on you dear
Around the dawn of each day
To always come true, dear
In your kind lovin' way
If you knew just how deeply
I feel things you do
Then you know how completely
I'm counting on you

Three great selections.

Whispering Grass - The Inkspots


only registered users can see external links

Why do you WHISPER, green grass?
Why tell the trees what ain't so?
WHISPERING Grass, the trees don't have to know.
No, No, Why tell them all your secrets?
Who kissed there long ago?
Whispering grass, the trees don't need to know.
Don't you tell it to the breeze 'cause she will tell the birds and bees
And ev'ryone will know because you told the blabbering trees
Yes, you told them once before;
It's no secret any more.
Why tell them all the old things?
They're buried under the snow.
Whispering Grass, don't tell the trees
'Cause the trees don't need to know.
Don't you tell it to the breeze 'cause she will tell the birds and bees
And ev'ryone will know because you told the blabbering trees
Yes, you told them once before;
It's no secret any more.
Why tell them all the old things?
They're buried under the snow.
Whispering Grass, don't tell the trees

And for those of us of a certain age in the UK

Careless Whisper - George Michael

only registered users can see external links


I feel so unsure
As I take your hand and lead you to the dance floor
As the music dies, something in your eyes
Calls to mind the silver screen
And all its sad good-byes
I'm never gonna dance again
Guilty feet have got no rhythm
Though it's easy to pretend
I know you're not a fool
Should've known better than to cheat a friend
And waste the chance that I'd been given
So I'm never gonna dance again
The way I danced with you
Time can never mend
The careless WHISPERS of a good friend
To the heart and mind
Ignorance is kind
There's no comfort in the truth
Pain is all you'll find
I'm never gonna dance again
Guilty feet have got no rhythm
Though it's easy to pretend
I know you're not a fool
I should've known better than to cheat a friend
And waste the chance that I'd been given
So I'm never gonna dance again
The way I danced with you
Never without your love
Tonight the music seems so loud
I wish that we could lose this crowd
Maybe it's better this way
We'd hurt each other with the things we'd want to say
We could have been so good together
We could have lived this dance forever
But no one's gonna dance with me
Please stay
And I'm never gonna dance again
Guilty feet have got no rhythm
Though it's easy to pretend
I know you're not a fool
Should've known better than to cheat a friend
And waste the chance that I'd been given
So I'm never gonna dance again
The way I danced with you
Now that you're gone
(Now that you're gone) What I did's so wrong, so wrong
That you had to leave me alone

Eagle - Abba


only registered users can see external links


They came flying from far away, now I'm under their spell
I love hearing the stories that they tell
They've seen places beyond my land and they've found new horizons
They speak strangely but I understand
And I dream I'm an eagle
And I dream I can spread my wings
Flying high, high, I'm a bird in the sky
I'm an eagle that rides on the breeze
High, high, what a feeling to fly
Over MOUNTAINS and forests and seas
And to go anywhere that I please
As all good friends we talk all night, and we fly wing to wing
I have questions and they know everything
There's no limit to what I feel, we climb higher and higher
Am I dreaming or is it all real?
Is it true I'm an eagle?
Is it true I can spread my wings?
Flying high, high, I'm a bird in the sky (I'm an eagle)
I'm an eagle that rides on the breeze
High, high, what a feeling to fly (What a feeling)
Over MOUNTAINS and forests and seas
And to go anywhere that I please
And I dream I'm an eagle
And I dream I can spread my wings
Flying high, high, I'm a bird in the sky (I'm an eagle)
I'm an eagle that rides on the breeze
High, high, what a feeling to fly (What a feeling)
Over MOUNTAINS and forests and seas
Flying high, high, I'm a bird in the sky (I'm an eagle)
I'm an eagle that rides on the breeze
High, high, what a feeling to fly (What a feeling)
Over MOUNTAINS and forests and seas
And to go anywhere that I please

You gave me a mountain - Elvis Presley


only registered users can see external links


Born in the heat of the desert
My mother died giving me life
Deprived of the love of a father
Blamed for the loss of his wife
You know Lord I've been in a prison
For something that I never done
It's been one hill after another
I've climbed them all one by one
But this time, Lord you gave me a MOUNTAIN
A MOUNTAIN you know I may never climb
It isn't just a hill any longer
You gave me a MOUNTAIN this time
My woman got tired of heartaches
Tired of the grief and the strife
So tired of working for nothing
Just tired of being my wife
She took my one ray of sunshine
She took my pride and my joy
She took my reason for living
She took my small baby boy
But this time, Lord you gave me a MOUNTAIN
A MOUNTAIN you know I may never climb
It isn't just a hill any longer
You gave me a MOUNTAIN this time


This was filmed not long before his death. How could someone so ill sound so good? Elvis had a truly amazing voice.

Word of the day for Saturday December 7th - MOUNTAIN
--------------------------------------- added after 5 hours

Smokey Mountain Boy - Elvis


only registered users can see external links


I'm just a Smokey MOUNTAIN boy
Come back to the hills I love
Where the tops of pine all bend in the wind
And the deep blue sky above

The closer and closer I get to home
The more excited I am
Those were the mornings I'd roll out of bed
Start the day off with a hot corn bread
Smothered in huckleberry jam

I'm just a Smokey MOUNTAIN boy
Come back to the hills I love
Where the tops of pine all bend in the wind
And the deep blue sky above

I can almost hear the hounds running through the woods
Close on the trail of the hare
How I long to be with them following the hounds a-huntin' again
Gettin' me a big old grizzly bear

I'm just a Smokey MOUNTAIN boy
Come back to the hills I love
Where the tops of pine all bend in the wind
And the deep blue sky above

I traveled around and met lots of girls
No matter how many I see
I left some pretty ones behind
I know back home is where I'll find
The girl whose love is meant for me

I'm just a Smokey MOUNTAIN boy
Come back to the hills I love
Where the tops of pine all bend in the wind
And the deep blue sky above

Fool (if you think itís over) - Chris Rea


only registered users can see external links


Dyin' flame, you're free again
Who could love, do that to you
All dressed in black, he won't be comin' back
Look, save your tears
Got years and years
The pains of seventeen's
Unreal they're only dreams
Save your cryin' for the day
Fool if you THINK it's over
'Cause you said goodbye
Fool if you THINK it's over
I'll tell you why
New born eyes always cry with pain
At the first look at the mornin' sun
Fool if you THINK it's over
It's just begun
Miss Teenage Dream, such a tragic scene
He knocked your crown and ran away
First wound of pride, and how you cried and cried
But save your tears, got years and years
Fool if you THINK it's over
'Cause you said goodbye
Fool if you THINK it's over
I'll tell you why...
I'll buy you first good wine
We'll have a real good time
Save your cryin' for the day
That may not come
But anyone who had to pay
Would laugh at you and say
Fool if you THINK it's over
'Cause you said goodbye
Fool if you THINK it's over
I'll tell you why
New born eyes always cry with pain
At the first

Think for yourself - The Beatles


only registered users can see external links


I've got a word or two
To say about the things that you do
You're telling all those lies
About the good things that we can have
If we close our eyes
Do what you want to do
And go where you're going to
THINK for yourself
'Cause I won't be there with you
I left you far behind
The ruins of the life that you had in mind
And though you still can't see
I know your mind's made up
You're gonna cause more misery
Do what you want to do
And go where you're going to
Think for yourself
'Cause I won't be there with you
Although your mind's opaque
Try thinking more if just for your own sake
The future still looks good
And you've got time to rectify
All the things that you should
Do what you want to do
And go where you're going to
Think for yourself
'Cause I won't be there with you
Do what you want to do
And go where you're going to
Think for yourself
'Cause I won't be there with you
Think for yourself
'Cause I won't be there with you

I always believed that the new decade was Jan 1 2021, 2011, 2031 etc. I have now researched a little and it appears that while science may agree with me, or me with their definition, there is no legal definition so people and common usage has tended to go for Jan 1 2010, 2020 etc.
That is clearer for me now, anyway.

Talking of French

I think it's going to rain today - Francoise Hardy


only registered users can see external links


Broken window, empty hallway
Pale dead moon in a sky streaked with grey
Human kindness overflowing
And I THINK it's gonna rain today

Scarecrows dressed in the latest style
With frozen smiles to keep love away
Human kindness overflowing
And I THINK its gonna rain today

Lonely, lonely
Tin can at my feet
THINK I'll kick it down the street
That's no way to treat a friend

Right before me, signs implore me
Help the needy and show them the way
Human kindness overflowing
I THINK its gonna rain today

(Why on earth do I remember this so clearly???)


only registered users can see external links


Children behave, that's what they say when we're together
And watch how you play
They don't understand
And so we're
Running just as fast as we can, holding on to one another hands
Trying to get away into the night and then you put your arms around me
And we tumble to the ground and then you say
I THINK we're alone now,
There doesn't seem to be anyone around
I THINK we're alone now,
The beating of our hearts is the only sound
Look at the way we gotta hide what we're doin'
'Cause what would they say
If they ever knew
And so we're
Running just as fast as we can, holding on to one another hands
Trying to get away into the night and then you put your arms around me
And we tumble to the ground and then you say
I THINK we're alone now,
There doesn't seem to be anyone around
I THINK we're alone now,
The beating of our hearts is the only sound
I THINK we're alone now,
There doesn't seem to be anyone around
I THINK we're alone now,
The beating of our hearts is the only sound
Running just as fast as we can, holding on to one another hands
Trying to get away into the night and then you put your arms around me
And we tumble to the ground and then you say
I THINK we're alone now,
There doesn't seem to be anyone around
I THINK we're alone now,
The beating of our hearts is the only sound
I THINK we're alone now,
There doesn't seem to be anyone around
I THINK we're alone now,
The beating of our hearts is the only sound
I THINK we're alone now,
There doesn't seem to be anyone around
I THINK we're alone now,
The beating of our hearts is the only sound
I THINK we're alone now,
There doesn't seem to be anyone around
I THINK we're alone now,
The beating of our hearts is the only sound

I'm sorry now, girl, but I must leave you
There's something deep inside my soul keeps calling me
The winter wind, girl, will not deceive you
And in your cold and empty bed, you'll THINK of me, oh yes
You'll THINK of me
You'll see me coming; you'll see me going

Just like that outlaw wind keeps on a-blowin'
Yeah, in your cold and empty bed, you'll THINK of me, oh yes
You'll THINK of me
Now I know you loved me just like I wanted
I know you'd follow me across an endless sea
But, baby, I've got a heart that's haunted
Yeah, in your cold and empty bed, you'll THINK of me, oh yes
You'll THINK of me
Ah, but you should know, girl, that I'll be crying
Out on that lonely road where not a soul can see
I'll shed my tears for a love that's dying
Yeah, in your cold and empty bed, you'll THINK of me, oh yes
You'll THINK of me
The summer sun, girl, will bring a stranger
And he'll be better to you than I used to be
And when he takes you into his arms, girl
Well, in your warm and loving bed, you won't THINK of me, no, no
You won't THINK of me
Then in your warm and loving bed, you won't THINK of me, no, no
You won't THINK of me

Let me -Elvis (from Love Me Tender)

only registered users can see external links


Whenever I dance with the girl I love
My head goes round and round
When she's close to me
I can't stay on the ground
Whenever I dance with the girl I love
I never have a care
All night I'm so light
I walk right on the air
Oh LET me, oh honey LET me
LET me do what you know I love to do
Please take another chance and LET me
Let me have another dance with you
Whenever I feel those pretty arms
Reaching round about
That feeling goes to my toes
And all the lights go out, go out, go out
Whenever I see those eyes of blue
Smiling up so shy
I'm in such a spin I take right off and fly
So let me, oh honey let me
Let me do what you know I love to do
Please take another chance and let me
Let me have another dance with you
So let me dance in the arms I love
Thrill me through and through
I'm so drunk with love
That all I see is you
I never hear the music play
I never see the crowd
Only you and me
Dancing on a cloud
Oh let me, oh honey let me
Let me do what you know I love to do
Please take another chance and let me
Let me have, another dance, with you

Lovin' you could be so easy,
Lovin' you could make me warm.
Ever since the day I left you,
I try, but I just cant get you
Out of my mind.
Thought that I could do without you,
Thought I had to look around.
But now that I know I need you,
And promise that I'll never leave you,
Wont you please
LET me in,
LET me in your arms again.
LET me give my love to you once more.
LET me love you, let me love you.
Take me in,
Take me in your arms to stay,
And I'll never go away again.
Cause I love you, cause I love you.
I'll never be the same without you,
If I have to say goodbye.
I have no right to ask you,
But if you can, wont you try to
Love me?
Help me?
And let
Let me in,
Let me in your arms again.
Let me give my love to you once more.
Oh, cause I love you, cause I love you.

Take me in your arms to stay
And I'll never go away

Let it be - The Beatles

When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, LET it be
And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be
And when the broken-hearted people living in the world agree
There will be an answer, let it be
For though they may be parted, there is still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Yeah, there will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be
And when the night is cloudy there is still a light that shines on me
Shine until tomorrow, let it be
I wake up to the sound of music, Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be
There will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be
There will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

I'm PLAYINí for keeps
This time it's real
And I want you to know
Exactly how I feel
I'm playin' for keeps
For I'm sure this time
And I won't be happy
Until I know you're mine
There have been others
That could love me true
But no one else
Can thrill me like you do
I'm playin' for keeps
Oh, love me too
Oh, don't make me sorry
That I fell in love with you
There have been others
That could love me true
But no one else
Can thrill me like you do
I'm playin' for keeps
Oh, love me too
Oh, don't make me sorry
That I fell in love with you
(Fell in love with you)
