Song: Petula Clark – Downtown

Petula Clark – Downtown

When you're alone
And life is making you lonely,
You can always go downtown
When you've got worries,
All the noise and the hurry
Seems to help, I know, downtown

Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty
How can you lose?

The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares and go
Downtown, things'll be great when you're
Downtown, no finer place for sure,
Downtown, everything's waiting for you
(Downtown)

Don't hang around
And let your problems surround you
There are movie shows downtown
Maybe you know
Some little places to go to
Where they never close downtown

Just listen to the rhythm of a gentle bossanova
You'll be dancing with 'em, too, before the night is over
Happy again

The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares and go
Downtown where all the lights are bright,
Downtown, waiting for you tonight,
Downtown, you're gonna be alright now
(Downtown downtown)
Downtown
(Downtown)

And you may find somebody kind to help and understand you
Someone who is just like you and needs a gentle hand to
Guide them along

So, maybe I'll see you there
We can forget all our troubles, forget all our cares and go
Downtown, things'll be great when you're
Downtown, don't wait a minute more,
Downtown, everything's waiting for you

Downtown (downtown) downtown (downtown)
Downtown (downtown) downtown (downtown)
(repeat and fade out)

Song: No Good For Me

8 06 2007

“The Corrs: No Good For Me”

I see a home in a quiet place
I see myself in a strong embrace
And I feel protection from the human race
It’s not parental

But it’s a fantasy, not a reality
And it’s no good, no, no good for me, you have no idea

That I’m walking through the clouds
When you’re looking at me
I’m feeling like a child
Vulnerability
I am shaking like a leaf if you move beside me
And you’re all that I see
But it’s no good for me

You have a home, (You have a home,) in a quiet place
And someone else, feels your strong embrace
She is protected and she needs no chase
And do you love her

You’re a mystery, you are the heart of intrigue
You’re no good no, no good for me
You have no idea

That I’m walking through the clouds
When you’re looking at me
I’m feeling like a child
Vulnerability
I am shaking like a leaf if you move beside me
And you’re all that I see
But it’s no good for me
No it’s no good for me…, yeah, no good for me…

[violin solo]

It’s a make-believe, you have no idea
That I’m walking through the clouds
When you’re looking at me
I’m feeling like a child
Vulnerability
I am shaking like a leaf if you move close to me
And you’re all that I see
But it’s no good for me, just no good, no good

Through the clouds
When you’re looking at me
I’m feeling like a child
Vulnerability
I am shaking like a leaf if you move beside to me
And you’re all that I see
But it’s no good for me
[Fade out]

And she keeps singing…

19 05 2007

Say it’s true, there’s nothing like me and you
I’m not alone, tell me you feel it too

And I would run away
I would run away, yeah…, yeah
I would run away
I would run away with you

Cause I am falling in love with you
No never I’m never gonna stop
Falling in love with you

Close the door, lay down upon the floor
And by candlelight, make love to me through the night
(through the night, through the night…)

Cause I have run away
I have run away, yeah…, yeah
I have run away, run away
I have run away with you

Cause I am falling in love (falling in love) with you
No never I’m never gonna stop
Falling in love with you…
With you…

And I would runaway
I would runaway, yeah…, yeah
I would runaway (runaway)
I would runaway with you

Cause I am falling in love (falling in love) with you
No never I’m never gonna stop
Falling in love with you…

Falling in love (falling in love) with you
No never I’m never gonna stop falling in love with you

With you, my love, with you…
na ni na ni na na…
(With you, with you, with you, with you)





Knock, Knock knocking on heavens door…

15 03 2007

Mama take this badge off of me,
I can’t use it any more,
It’s getting dark, too dark to see,
Feel i’m knocking on heavens door.

Knock, Knock knocking on heavens door,
Knock, Knock knocking on heavens door.
Knock, Knock knocking on heavens door,
Knock, Knock knocking on heavens door,

Mama put my guns in the ground,
I can’t shoot them any more,
That long black cloud is coming down,
Feels like i’m knocking on heavens door.

Knock, Knock knocking on heavens door,
Knock, Knock knocking on heavens door,
Knock, Knock knocking on heavens door,
yeah yeah,
Knock, Knock knocking on heavens door,
