YOU CANíT TAKE IT WITH YOU


Well I know a man, heís as rich as a king, ooh
But when you dim the light in the dead of the night
He ainít got a thing.
I see a fool here, he donít have a friend, no

To buy the love he needs, the camaraderie

Heís got a lot to spend. Ooh baby

 

You canít take it with you man, you gotta let it go.
I said you canít take it with you no, no, no, no, no


Well I know a man, he used to strum along, but

No matter how I try, I canít imagine why
He thinks he wrote the song.
But thereíll come a time, when the road gets tough, yeah
But if youíve got your friends no matter what you spend
Youíve always got enough. Ooh yeah


You canít take it with you man, you gotta let it go.
I said you canít take it with you no, no, no, no, no.


You know I know the truth, itís so plain to me, ooh
And if you strip away the lies you live each day,
Iím sure youíre gonna see
That here is a fake, but itís so nicely done,
And as the emperor knows, you need some warmer clothes,
You ainít got nothing on. Ooh baby


You canít take it with you man, youíve gotta let it go.
I said you canít take it with you no, no, no, no, no.


Well I had a dream, I would have shared with you, ooh
You couldnít take the truth, youíre living in a spoof,
Donít wanna play with you.
And there is a saying, yeah and itís always true,
So if youíre dealing low, youíre gonna reap what you sow,
Itís gonna get to you. No, no, no


You canít take it with you man, you gotta let it go.
I said you canít take it with you no, no, no, no, no, no, no


You know I know a guy and he flew so high, ooh
But he became so small we couldnít see him at all,
We didnít even try.
And youíre the living proof, youíre just floating on air, yeah
Mister Wonderful your tricks are magical, but youíre just not there.


Ooh no, no
You canít take it with you man, you gotta let it go.
I said you canít take it with you no, no, no, no, no, Oooh-ooh-ooooh

 

Ooh baby
You canít take it with you man, you gotta let it go.
I said you canít take it with you no, no, no, no, no

You canít take it with you man, you gotta let it go.
I said you canít take it with you no, no, no, no, no, no

What the girls do

You canít take it with you man, you gotta let it go.
I said you canít take it with you no, no, no, no, no. Oooh-ooh-ooooh

You canít take it with you man, you gotta let it go.
I said you canít take it with you no, no, no, no, no, no, no

 

A FRIEND IN NEED


How many times did you ever get to the edge and say
Thereís no turning back no, no, no, there ainít no other way.
But in the depths of confusion, when the chips are really down,
Thereís a tap on your shoulder baby and youíve got to turn around.


Here is a friend, for a friend in need.
And a friend in need is a friend indeed.
No explanations needed, no questionnaire
Just take a look behind you baby, Iíll be standingÖ


I know a man from the north, but his philosophy is a farce.

He said a friend in need is just a pain in the arse.
Heís dealing with his friendships like heís dealing with his cards
And when the deal turns sour well heís disappearing fast.


Here is a friend, for a friend in need.
And a friend in need is a friend indeed.
No explanations needed, no questionnaire
Just take a look behind you baby, Iíll be standingÖ


Oooh but youíre thinking where upon this speck of dust
Can I find a soul, a soul that I can trust.
These little minds around me they make everything so small.
Molehills out of mountains and they donít see the beauty of it all.


Nothing can really harm you but your own loss of face.
Itís too tough to handle and you donít wanna finish the race.
But thereís an answer to the problem like the sun behind the rain
Just take a look around you and youíll be smiling again.


Here is a friend, for a friend in need.
And a friend in need is a friend indeed.
No explanations needed, no, no questionnaire
Take a look around you baby, whoís standing thereÖ


Here is a friend, here is a friend, for a friend in need.
And a friend in need is a friend indeed, friend indeed.
No explanation needed, no questionnaire, no questionnaire.
Take a look around you baby, whoís standing there, whoís standing there.


Here is a friend, here is a friend, for a friend in need.
And a friend in need is a friend indeed, friend indeed.
No explanations needed, no questionnaire, no questionnaire.
Take a look around you baby, whoís standing there, whoís standing there.


Here is a friend, here is a friend, for a friend in need.
And a friend in need is a friend indeed, friend indeed.
No explanations needed, no questionnaire, no questionnaire.
Take a look around you baby, whoís standing there, whoís standing there.


Here is a friend, here is a friend, for a friend in need.
And a friend in need is a friend indeed, friend indeed.


THE GODS ARE SMILING

This time, this time is really precious, I really shouldnít waste it.
These days, these days are getting shorter,
And Iíve only just begun to taste it.
These walls, these walls, these walls are stronger than a motherís love.
Oooh, the sun is getting brighter and Iím basking in the light.
But that moon is looking colder, will I make it through the night?


This must be heaven, Iím with the happy throng.
Somebody loves me, I really canít go wrong.
The gods are smiling, so who am I to moan?
The gods are smiling on me and my happy home.
My door is open, the laughter goes on
No locks, no bars, no thanks, no way.


Those eyes, those eyes were always open to a different point of view.
Those lips, those lips were always moving, always moving with the truth.
This heart, this heart was always hoping, oooh
Hoping for a better way.
Well Iíve never been a sinner but Iíve wandered from the track
And a lie would leave me thinking, do I wanna be like that?


This must be heaven, Iím with the happy throng.
Somebody loves me, I really canít go wrong.
The gods are smiling, so who am I to moan?
The gods are smiling on me and my happy home.
My door is open, the laughter goes on
No locks, no bars, no thanks, no way.


This must be heaven, Iím with the happy throng.
Somebody loves me, I really canít go wrong.
The gods are smiling, so who am I to moan?
The gods are smiling on me and my happy home.
My door is open, the laughter goes on,
No locks, no bars, no thanks, no way.

 

This must be heaven, Iím with the happy throng.

No locks, no bars, no thanks, no way.

 

FRED AND DIS-AUDREY

I saw a man down at Camber Sands, yeah
He had the sunset sitting in his hands; he said
Iím tryinía capture that special light, well I,
I try and try but I just canít get it right.
Itís so beautiful, itís so beautiful.
Itís so beautiful, itís so beautiful,
That magic moment, just before the night,
I try and try but I just canít get it right.
No I just canít get it right, I just canít get it right.
No I just canít get it right, I just canít get it right.


Iíll show you Venice, before the city sinks,
Before those tourists, they tip it in the drink.
Weíll gaze in wonder, Ďcross those Canaletto skies,
Weíll follow masters, Ďcross the Bridge of Sighs.
Itís so beautiful, itís so beautiful,
Ooooh itís so beautiful, itís so beautiful.
Youíll never believe it, those colours make you high.
Weíll follow masters, Ďcross the Bridge of Sighs.
Yeah, across the Bridge of Sighs, across the Bridge of Sighs.

Oooh, across the Bridge of Sighs, across the Bridge of Sighs.

 

Itís so beautiful, itís so beautiful.

 

So tell me, Frederic, could I ever paint like that?
Mix up these colours, well, youíre grinning like a cat.
Just look around you, you donít paint what you see,
Itís the spaces in between, there lies the mystery.
Itís so beautiful, itís so beautiful.
Itís so beautiful, itís so beautiful.
You gotta look deeper, you donít paint what you see.
The spaces in between, there lies the mystery,
There lies the mystery, there lies the mystery.

Ooh yeah, there lies the mystery, there lies the mystery.

I try and try but I just canít get it right, no, no.

I try and try but I just canít get it right.

I try and try but I just canít get it right, no, no.

I try and try but I just canít get it right.

I try and try but I just canít get it right, no, no.

I try and try but I just canít, just canít get it right.

I try and try but I just canít get it right, no, oh.

I try and try but I just canít get it right, no, no, no.

I try and try and try and try and try and try and try, try, try.

I try and try and try and try and try and try and try, try, try.

I try and try but I just canít get it right, like crazy.

I try and try but I just canít get it right, no, no, no.

I try and try but I just canít get it right, like crazy.

I try and try but I just canít get it right. No, no, no

 

I WILL LOVE YOU TOMORROW

 

Got to thank my lucky stars, lucky man I did go far

Deep inside that soothing light too far but it came out right

I canít change a bit of the past

Youíre still there, we can make it last

Give and take and move it along

Work it out and our love grows strong

 

I love you more and more each day, much more than yesterday

But not as much as I will love you tomorrow

Love is love and itís here to stay,

Much more than yesterday

But not as much as I will love you tomorrow

Not as much as I will love you tomorrow

 

Magic moments deep in the past, long ago but the memory lasts

Sight, sound, touch and smell, memories there that I know so well

I wanna dream that dream again

Round and round and around again

Donít stop me, I canít let go

Got the best of all I know

 

I love you more and more each day, much more than yesterday

But not as much as I will love you tomorrow

Love is love and itís here to stay,

Much more than yesterday

But not as much as I will love you tomorrow

Not as much as I will love you tomorrow

 

Those words that I want to say, in my mouth then they melt away

Swim around my head at night, disappear in the morning light

I look at you and youíre not a dream

Everything is just what it seems

Your face is warm and your lips are real

Itís so good when we touch and feel

 

I love you more and more each day, much more than yesterday

But not as much as I will love you tomorrow

Love is love and itís here to stay,

Much more than yesterday

But not as much as I will love you tomorrow

 

I love you more and more each day, much more than yesterday

But not as much as I will love you tomorrow

Love is love and itís here to stay,

Much more than yesterday

But not as much as I will love you tomorrow

 

I love you more and more each day, much more than yesterday

But not as much as I will love you tomorrow

Love is love and itís here to stay,

Much more than yesterday

But not as much as I will love you tomorrow

 

I love you more and more each day, much more than yesterday

But not as much as I will love you tomorrow

Love is love and itís here to stay,

Much more than yesterday

But not as much as I will love you tomorrow

 

I love you more and more each day, much more than yesterday

But not as much as I will love you tomorrow

 

SLEEPING WITH THE GHOSTS

Oooh I saw your soul awakened like a butterflyís wings,
And your face was full of laughter and your heart began to sing.
You were soaring through the heavens,
You could leave the past behind,
But that thread itís still not broken,
Itís out of sight, not out of mind.
No you canít deny the pleasures or the thing you miss the most,
No, you ainít fooling no-one, baby, youíre still sleeping with the ghosts.


Heaven knows what the future holds
We can speculate but weíll never know.
The past will hold you tightly, youíve gotta break away
Your lifeís still in a limbo and youíve gotta find a way.
I know no better, there ainít no crystal ball
But youíve gotta keep on moving, if you donít youíre gonna fall.


Oooh talk Ďtil youíre dropping, deep into the night,
That fear wonít go away now,
Youíre like a cat caught in the headlights.
Sail into the sunset, oh across those stormy seas,
You ainít fooling no one, baby, youíre not fooling me.
Run with the devil, but youíll miss what matters most,
You canít hide the memories, youíre still sleeping with the ghosts.


Heaven knows what the future holds
We can speculate but weíll never know.
The past will hold you tightly, youíve gotta break away
Your lifeís still in a limbo and youíve gotta find a way.
I know no better, there ainít no crystal ball
But youíve gotta keep on moving, if you donít youíre gonna fall, ooh

 

Deep in the darkness, way behind those tired eyes,
Underneath the laughter, the nightmare never dies.
The fearís still hanging in there, will it never, never leave?
Can you throw away those shackles?
Give yourself a chance to breathe?
You ainít going nowhere now, always heading for the coast,
Canít you see whatís happening, youíre still burning the toast.
You ainít fooling no-one now,
Youíre still sleeping with the ghosts.

 

Heaven knows what the future holds
We can speculate but weíll never know.
The past will hold you tightly, youíve gotta break away
Your lifeís still in a limbo and youíve gotta find a way.
I know no better, there ainít no crystal ball
But youíve gotta keep on moving, if you donít youíre gonna fall

 

Heaven knows what the future holds
We can speculate but weíll never know.
The past will hold you tightly, youíve gotta break away
Your lifeís still in a limbo and youíve gotta find a way.
I know no better, there ainít no crystal ball
But youíve gotta keep on moving, if you donít youíre gonna fall

The king said wait a minute this is absurd.
Jumpiní Jehosephat, sheís better than me,
I gotta get moviní or I ainít gonna be
King of the kingdom, king of the road,
Well, I gotta look smart on the Internettie show.


No, no, Nettie, we got to confess
You canít go flying in a see through dress,
Youíve gotta be special if you want the press,
Desperate measures make a dreadful mess.
But donít get angry, donít get pissed,
Weíll find a way to get you in the Harpers list.
Oooh no, no, Nettie, donít you fret,
The boys are gonna save you from the Bristol Rep.
Oooh oooh no, no, Nettie, you canít do that.


Well touringís boring, gimme a break,
I got to ease the pressure now, for heavenís sake,
I canít stop shouting, yeah Iím fit to explode,
You canít be a saint when youíre on the road.
Hire Ďem, fire Ďem, let them go,
Staff are ten a penny on the Internettie show.


Ooh no, no, Nettie, you cant do that,
You canít wear stockings to the Laundromat,
All that Ďcitement makes the whites turn grey,
Oh Lord above, get on your knees and pray.
Donít be hasty, walk that line,
The cavalry are coming in the nick of time,
No, no, Nettie, take your time,
The boys are gonna save you from the chorus line.
Oooh oooh no, no, Nettie, you canít do that.


We got rhythm in the kitchen, rhythm at the wheel,
Fascinating passion with a delicate feel.
Rhythm with the money, rhythm on the skins.
Complicated rhythms when weíre up for a spin.
No rhythm with the women but she donít give a hoot,
Hey! Terrorise the nanny in her hobnail boots.


Well, no, no, Nettie, itís a dreadful shame,
The music business is a silly game,
Better run for cover when the sky turns black,
Swinginí Dave is gonna swing his axe.
This year, next year, the year after that,
The storyís getting better than in Spinal Tap.
Woah, No, no, Nettie, toe that line,
The Basherís gonna save you in the nick of time.
Oooh oooh no, no, Nettie, you canít do that.

MR DECADENT

Oh my dear youíre so decadent,
Your back is straight but your genes are bent.
Youíre flying high, man, and driving fast,
Itís better than dreaming, Ďcause dreams never last.
Thereíll come a time when all that energyís spent,
Ooh mon brave, youíre so decadent.


Your minty woman sheís so, fine, fine, fine.
Your minty boyís getting prime time.
Youíve got your heaven, itís right here on earth,
Just look around you, do you know what itís worth?
Thereíll come a time when itís too late to relent,
Ooh my dear, youíre so decadent.


Good time Charlie, thatís what they say,
But who gives a damn, and who are they anyway?
Behind the chiclets and under the grin,
The demons are waiting but we wont let Ďem in.
You keep Ďem guessing, itís better that way,
Itís all in what you do, man, and not what you say.


Raise your glass and sip on my í45,
Itís still a winner and weíre very much alive.
Keep telling porkies and spinning those lines,
The yarnís getting longer but itís better every time.
Thereís no time for caution, your framework is bent,
Oooh, my friend, youíre so decadent.
Oooh, Mr Decadent,

Oooh here he comes, here he comes, Mr Decadent,

Oooh, heís heaven sent.
Heís Mr Decadent.

You really kept your heads and now you can keep your house.

The fright of their lives.

These pillars of wisdom stand on feet of clay,
Theyíll rob you blind if you dare to look the other way.
Youíd better believe theyíre playing a dirty game,
But you found Ďem out man, theyíre gonna take the blame.
The court is buzzing when the judge gets tough,
She said itís dreadful, man, enough is enough.
They scream and holler when the jury say
We find you guilty man and youíre gonna pay.


Do the books, um um um, do the books.

Too fat, too long, where did you get these bits?
They look familiar, man, from the McLaren pits.
Carbon fibre wheels and a grand prix box,
No, no, no, I tell you this has cost too much.
Sixty quidís your limit, drink your poison Ďfore I put you in it.
Here come the scrute with his measuring stick,
Heís gotta bee in the bonnet, he donít miss a trick, no.
Jenny keeps smiling well she knows the score,
Everybodyís hustling for a little bit more.
Oh dear God, cor blimey, here comes Ollie, with Oliverís army.

A HUMAN, BEING

Iím not a yid, Iím not a yok,
Iím not a spic, Iím not a wap,
Iím not a honky, Iím not a coon,
If you disagree, you gimme fighting room.
My mother was Irish, she called me Mick,
My dad was a Scot, but he knew the licks,
So I find myself on the edge of a point of view.


I am a human, seeing. I am a human, believing.
I am a human, just feeling. I am a human, being.


Iím not a queen and Iím not a fag,
Iím not a fairy, itís such a drag.
Is it really straight? We pontificate,
When the way we moveís just a twist of fate,
Oooh give it a name and we give it a face,
Slander my name all over the place,
But weíre standing around on the edge of a bottomless pit.


I am a human, seeing. I am a human, believing.
I am a human, just feeling. I am a human, being.


There is a spark inside of you.
Well, itís not religious, but that wonít do.
There is a God for everyone,
Well heís not religious, but we still get it wrong.
Well Iím no saint, no I got no creed,
If I cut myself I will surely bleed.
But I find myself there laughing at the wailing wall.


I am a human, seeing. I am a human, believing.
I am a human, just feeling. I am a human, being.

 

I am a human, seeing. I am a human, believing.
I am a human, just feeling. I am a human, being.

I am a human, seeing. I am a human, believing.
I am a human, just feeling. I am a human, being.

I am a human, seeing. I am a human, believing.
I am a human, just feeling. I am a human, being.

I am a human, seeing. I am a human, believing.
I am a human, just feeling. I am a human, being.

 

YOU ARE NOT ME


I am not you, you are not me and never the twain etcetera,
But if we try a little compromise, itíll get betterer.
I seem to move with two left feet when Iím trucking down your street,
I donít mind a little ridicule, itís just a different beat, different beat.

Just a different beat, a different beat.


We bleed the same, the two of us, we hurt and feel the fears.
We shouldnít feign indifference, we both shed those tears, both shed those tears.
Itís really not important now which one of us is right.
I am not you, you are not me, but do we need to fight, need to fight?

Do we need to fight, we need to fight?


Life could be a dream, dream, so what are we fighting for, fighting for?
I really think itís over now and I wonít go down that road again, road again.
Ooh turn the other cheek, just let those sleeping dogs lie,
Let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go.

Let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go.

Let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go.

Oh let it go.


Iím sick and tired of silly games, weíve let the pieces fall,
We could be seeing eye to eye, but can we stand so tall, stand so tall?
I am not you, you are not me, our differences last,
Weíve got to fix the future now,

We can erase the past, erase the past
We can erase the past, erase the past

We can erase the past, erase the past

We can erase the past, erase the past

We can erase the past, erase the past

We can erase the past, erase the past

We can erase the past, erase the past

We can erase the past, erase the past

We can erase the past, erase the past

We can erase the past, erase the past

We can erase the past, erase the past

We can erase the past, erase the past

 

BONUS DISC

 

IíM NOT IN LOVE (LATINO)


I'm not in love, so don't forget it
It's just a silly phase I'm going through
And just because I call you up
Don't get me wrong, don't think you've got it made
I'm not in love, no, no, it's because...

 

Ooh you'll wait a long time for me,
Ooh you'll wait a long time
Ooh you'll wait a long time for me
Oooooh you'll wait a long time


I like to see you, but then again
That doesn't mean you mean that much to me
But if I call you, don't make a fuss
Don't tell your friends about the two of us
I'm not in love, no, no, it's because...

Ooh you'll wait a long time for me,
Ooh you'll wait a long time
Ooh you'll wait a long time for me
Oooooh you'll wait a long time


I keep your picture upon the wall
It hides a nasty stain that's lying there
So don't you ask me to give it back
I know you know it doesn't mean that much to me
I'm not in love, no, no, it's because...


Ooh you'll wait a long time for me,
Ooh you'll wait a long time
Ooh you'll wait a long time for me
Oooooh you'll wait a long time

 

Ooh you'll wait a long time for me,
Ooh you'll wait a long time
Ooh you'll wait a long time for me
Oooooh you'll wait a long time


THE STARS DIDNíT SHOW

We came from miles around
Just to listen to your sound
You made the night seem endless
You cast a magic spell
You played the part so well
Your music blew away the darkness
We loved you for better
Loved you for worse
But we never took you for granted
Your lives were a blessing
But they carried a curse
The night that the stars didn't show
You made me stand so proud
I was lifted from the crowd
The fire inside me burning
The figure dressed in black
Sending shivers down my back
Deep inside my soul was stirring
We loved you for better
Loved you for worse
The sweet inspiration that you gave us
And I can remember we didn't rehearse
The night that the stars didn't show
Mountains may crumble
And worlds fall apart
Lovers and friends they desert me
The road may be long
But I know in my heart
Your spirit will always be with me
The thrill to be up there
A sea of faces everywhere
I look I find you
We loved you for better
Loved you for worse
But we never took you for granted
Your lives were a blessing
But they carried a curse
The night that the stars didn't show
We loved you for better
Loved you for worse
The sweet inspiration that you gave us
And I can remember we didn't rehearse
The night that the stars didn't show    

We loved you for better
Loved you for worse

Your lives were a blessing
But they carried a curse
The night that the stars didn't show

 

TEK DIS A WOMAN

Oh baby, baby, what am I doing?

Down on my knees, somebodyís praying

Thereís something strange about the line that heís using

But Iím not listening, watching him grooving.

Oh my darling what is he saying

Heís doing a dance, the people are swaying,

I donít believe it but Iíve got to be dreaming

Somebody wake me, stop me from screaming

Somebody wake me, Iíve got to be dreaming

Must be the past, Iím needing salvation

I saw the storm in my tea-cup, true enough

Ooh I was heading for a shake-up, really tough

She got me hook line and sinkered, lightly fried

I waved goodbye to my freedom, Ďbye, goodbye, goodbye

Oh she was heading for the border, split the town

I should have stayed undercover, underground

Getting up Ďtil she hit me, nailed you down

I waved goodbye to my freedom, Ďbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

 

I said my darling, oh what am I doing?

My head is on fire, my bridges are burning.

Iíve got to fight it but my spirit is sinking

How could you fool me? What was I thinking?

Oh baby, baby, what am I doing?

Still on my knees, I shouldnít be laughing.

IĎm trying to focus but the vision is hazy,

But still you can laugh, youíre driving me crazy

You drive me crazy.

A CODE OF SILENCE


Deep in the night
I can hear you calling my name
How can I try to help you woman
If you go on hiding your pain
Baby, Baby, the tears on your pillow are real
You can't go on pretending to me
when I see the pain that you feel
A code of silence, is a dreadful thing
It can make you feel harder
It can keep you hanging on a string
Here in the darkness
When I hear you calling my name
A code of silence is a deadly game
It's a deadly game (what's that you say)
It's a deadly game (speak to me now)
It's a deadly game (deadly game)
Lost in your dreams
Trouble on your face in the pale moonlight
Nowhere to run you've got to let me know
Where you are standing tonight
Baby, Baby, Baby
I know that you're hurting inside
Open your heart
I know that we can make it
If you talk to me now
A code of silence, is a deadly thing
It can make you feel harder
It can keep you hanging on a string
Here in the darkness
When I hear you calling my name
A code of silence is a deadly game
It's a deadly game (what's that you say)
It's a deadly game (speak to me now)
It's a deadly game (deadly game)...
