HOMEWARD BOUND
(Paul Simon)

Sitting in a railway station, got a ticket for my destination
On a tour of one night stands, my suitcase and guitar in hand
And every stop is neatly planned for a poet and a one-man band
Homeward bound, I wish I was
Homeward bound
Home where my thoughts are straying
Home where my music's playing
Home where my love lies waiting
Silently for me

Every day's an endless stream of cigarettes and magazines
And each town looks the same to me, the movies and the factories
And every stranger's face I see reminds me where I long to be
Homeward bound, I wish I was
Homeward bound
Home where my thoughts are straying
Home where my music's playing
Home where my love lies waiting
Silently for me

Tonight I'll sing my songs again, play the game and pretend
But all my thoughts come back to me in shades of mediocrity
Like emptiness in harmony, I need someone to comfort me
Homeward bound, I wish I was
Homeward bound
Home where my thoughts are straying
Home where my music's playing
Home where my love lies waiting
Silently for me


HOW MANY TRAINS
(Jeremy Clyde/David Pierce/Rick Jones)

How many trains do you wait for
How many miles do you pace
How many times do you search the crowd
Think that you've seen her face

How many times do you say to yourself
There's so many things it could be
Some last minute hitch, some trouble at home
She'll be here any minute, you'll see

Blow lonely whistle
Slow lonely song
I know that my baby's all right
But why is she taking so long

How many trains do you wait for
What makes the waiting so long
How many times do you search the board
In case you've been reading it wrong

Blow lonely whistle
Slow lonely call
I know that she's coming tonight
So I'll just hang in there, that's all

How many times do you say to yourself
She has to be on the next train
How many times do you straighten your tie
Then straighten your tie once again

Blow lonely whistle
Slow lonely song
I know that my baby's all right
But why is she taking so long
Blow lonely whistle
Slow lonely call
I know that she's coming tonight
So I'll just hang in there, that's all


I CAN'T TALK TO YOU
(B. Lind)

I can bring tears to the eyes of the rain
I can fly free through the skies of my brain
I can sing songs to the ears of the wind
Laugh at the dizzy green world while it spins
I walk through the morning and cry like the dew
'Cause I can't talk to you

I can walk miles down a rain dampened road
My feelings expand till my nerve ends explode
Melodies swing from the birds in the tree
I can't help but feel that they're singing to me
My sorrow drops down the the soles of my shoes
"Cause I can't talk to you

My dreams in the night funnel up toward the moon
My carnival soul is a bright red balloon
My words rush like rivers and flow to my head
But they'll dry on the banks and they'll never be said
The dry river bed makes me know that it's true
'Cause I can't talk to you


I DON'T WANT TO LOSE YOU BABY
(Van McCoy)

I know how quickly love can slip away
Yes, I know how love can die, that's why I say
I'm gonna try with all my heart
To keep you happy so we'll never part because
I don't wanna lose you baby
I don't wanna lose you baby
I don't wanna lose you baby
No, no, no - no, no, no

I know how quickly hearts can lose their way
All along the road to love, when led astray
And that is why I'm gonna give
You all my love ev'ry day that I live because
I don't wanna lose you baby
I don't wanna lose you baby
I don't wanna lose you baby
No, no, no - no, no, no

Now that you've taught me the thrill of your kiss
Now that you've taught me to love you like this
I don't wanna lose you baby
I don't wanna lose you baby
I don't wanna lose you baby
No, no, no - no, no, no


I HAVE DREAMED
(Hammerstein/Rodgers)

I have dreamed that your arms are lovely
I ahve dreamed what a joy tyou'll be
I have dreamed every word you'll whisper
When you're close, so close to me

How you look in the glow of evening
I have dreamed and enjoyed the view
In these dreams I've loved you so
That by now I think I know
What it's like to be loved by you
I will love being loved by you

In these dreams I've loved you so
That by now I think I know
What it's like to be loved by you
I will love being loved by you

I LOVE MY LOVE
(John Barry)

I love my love with an "L" that stands for longing
An "L" that once stood for loneliness now stands for lovers lane
And the lake we came to often
And the light through the tress of the moon on the lake and the laughter

In the long long hours that my love is left all alone to sing its song in
I love my love with an "L" that stands for longing

I love my love with an "O" for overpowering
An "O" that once stood for out of bounds now is the overture
Of romantic times and places
For our love seems to be like a tree growing in an oasis

And the sun breaks through and the trees will bloom, the blossoms all start flowering
I love my love with an "O" for overpowering

I love my love with a "V" for very dearly
A "V" that once stood for all in vain now stands for valentine
In a world that's vastly sweeter
For her kiss verifies all the joy in her eyes when I meet her

Life begins anew, it's a differwent view not a vision seen unclearly
I love my love with a "V" for very dearly

I love my love with an "E" for every minute
An "E" that once stood for emptiness now stands for everywhere
That we've ever been together
And the eager embrace that's eternally ours and forever

For a romance will make your life stand still from the moment you begin it
I love my love with an "E" for every minute
I love my love with an "L" for longing, overpowering, very dearly, "E" for every minute of the day
And my love loves me in exactly the same sort of way

I WON'T CRY
(James William Guercio)

I won't cry, no no no. I won't cry
If you're gonna go go now
Then you've gotta know now
It's goodbye

I won't cry, no no no. I won't cry
Babe, you can't deceive me
I know you're gonna leave me
That is why

When people tell me I am lonely
I could never say I loved you
I could never say I loved you

I won't cry, no no no, I won't cry
There'll be no tears of sorrow
I'll find someone tomorrow
That is why

When people tell me I am lonely
I could never say I loved you
I could never say I loved only you

IF I FELL
(John Lennon/Paul McCartney)

If I fell in love with you
Would you promise to be true
And help me understand
'Cause I've been in love before
And I found that love was more
Than just holding hands

If I give my heart to you
I must be sure
From the very start that you
Would love me more than her

If I trust in you, oh please
Don't run and hide
If I love you too, oh please
Don't hurt my pride like her
'Cause I couldn't stand the pain
And I would be sad if our new love was in vain

So I hope you see that I
Would love to love you
And that she will cry
When she learns we are two
'Cause I couldn't stand the pain
And I would be sad if our new love was in vain

So I hope you see that I
Would love to love you
And that she will cry
When she learns we are two
If I fell in love with you

IF I HAD A HAMMER
(Leo Hays/Pete Seegar)

If I had a hammer
I'd hammer in the morning
I'd hammer in the evening
All over this land

I'd hammer out danger
I'd hammer out a warning
I'd hammer out love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land

If I had a bell
I'd ring it in the morning
I'd ring it in the evening
All over this land

I'd ring out danger
I'd ring out warning
I'd ring out love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land

If I had a song
I'd sing it in the morning
I'd sing it in the evening
All over this land

I'd sing out danger
I'd sing out warning
I'd sing out love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land

Well I've got a hammer
And I've got a bell
And I've got a song to sing
All over this land

It's the hammer of justice
It's the bell of freedom
It's a song about love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land

It's the hammer of justice
It's the bell of freedom
It's a song about love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land

IF I HAD MY WAY
(traditional)

You read about Sampson you read about his birth
He was the strongest man who ever lived on earth
One day this Sampson was walking alone
He looked down on the ground and spied an old jaw bone
He picked up that jaw bone swung it round his head
And when he got through movin' ten thousand men was dead

If I had my way
If I had my way
If I had my way in this wicked world
I would tear this building down

Well samson and the lion got into attack
Sampson he crawled up on the lion's back
Well you read about Sampson killed lion with his paw
Sampson got his hands around that lions jaw
And he rammed that beast till he was dead
The bees made honey in the lions head

If I had my way
If I had my way
If I had my way in this wicked world
I would tear this building down

Delilah was a woman she was tall and fair
She had lovely looks, god knows, and coal black hair
One day she climbed up by Sampson's knee
Tell me where you strength lies, if you please
She talked so fine, she talked so fair
Sampson told Delilah cut off my hair
Cut off my hair, and my strength will be like a natural man

If I had my way
If I had my way
If I had my way in this wicked world
I would tear this building down

If I had my way
If I had my way
If I had my way in this wicked world
I would tear this building down

IF I LOVED YOU
(Rodgers/Hammerstein)

If I loved you
Time and again I would try to say
All I want you
To know

If I loved you
Words wouldn't come in an easy way
Round in circles
They'd go

Longing to tell you
But afraid and shy
I'd let my golden chances
Pass me by

Soon you'd leave me
Off you would go in the mist of day
Never, never to know
How I loved you so

IF SHE WAS MINE
(Goldsboro/Buie)

If she was mine
I wouldn't run around
All over town
Like all those other guys
If she was mine

If she was mine
I'd always treat her good
The way I should
I'd never tell her lies
If she was mine

Those big blue eyes you see are not for cryin'
You shouldn't treat her bad the way you do
'Cause you're gonna lose her love if you keep lyin'
I know it's true, 'cause she once loved me too

If she was mine
The way she used to be
I'd make her see
That I've grown up inside
If she was mine

IF YOU NEED SOMEBODY
(Wayne Irwin)

If you need somebody to love
Baby look at me, yeah
If you need somebody to love
You can count on me

I'll be there right by your side
Just wait and see yeah
Try to feel the way I feel
You can count on me

I dont want a love
That'll die
I don't need a love
That's a lie

If you need somebody to love
Baby look at me, yeah
Try to feel the way I feel
You can count on me

I dont want a love
That'll die
I don't need a love
That's a lie

If you need somebody to love
Baby look at me, yeah
Try to feel the way I feel
You can count on me

IF YOU'VE GOT A HEART
(Goldsboro)

I'd like to know if you can cry
I'd like to see a tear in your eye
I think you enjoy tearing me apart
I'd like to know if you've got a heart

True love won't change, so I am told
But one day you're warm, the next day you're cold
I'm tired of you tearing me apart
I'd like to know if you've got a heart

I think that you're using me
Till you find someone new
But if you wait too long
You'll have to find me too

Make up your mind, then let me know
Tell me you're mine or leave me alone
I'm tired of you tearing me apart
I'd like to know if you've got a heart


I'LL GET AROUND TO IT (when and if I can)
(James William Guercio)

She said I didn't care about the things that people say
That I would have to show everyone I was her man
Then so long, don't cry when I'm gone
"Cause I'll  get around to it when and if I can

Why should I obey every wish she has each day?
So I'll just let her know this better stop or I will go
Then so long, don't cry when I'm gone
"Cause I'll  get around to it when and if I can

Stay with me and let me see
If I can do a whole lot
To try to change your line of thought
Perhaps I will but maybe not
Well then so long, don't cry when I'm gone
"Cause I'll  get around to it when and if I can
I'll  get around to it when and if I can


I'M IN LOVE AGAIN
(Stuart/Clyde)

Please don't ask me why
Please don't ask me when
I only know that I
Can't help myself
'Cause I'm in love again

Believe me when I say
I'll love you till the end
It's not just for a day
Can't help myself
'Cause I'm in love again

Never mind the other girls I left behind
One look at you and now I find
I can't live without you

Can't you see
I'm more that just a friend
You're the girl for me
Can't help myself
'Cause I'm in love again

IMAGINATION
(Jeremy Clyde)

Look out when you go upstairs
It always knows when you are there
Always there behind your back
Has no name and it's dressed in black

You know it's incredibly tall
You know that it's more than a feeling
It lives where the wallpaper's peeling
In the hall

Imagination, that's all

Don't let on that you're scared
You're safe when you're under the covers
But that doesn't help when your mother's
Downstairs

Imagination, my dear, imagination

I lay in bed the other night
Dreamed I saw wild geese in flight
Flapped my arms with all my might
But somehow could not follow

Return to the source of your dreams
Return to the Teddy Bear clover
You may well live it over again
In your imagination

The geese, they were so snowy white
Speckled red in the morning light
If I practice all the night
Then I shall fly tomorrow

Tomorrow when I fly away
Far above the clouds I'll play
I'll be back at break of day
My head upon my pillow

Look out when you go upstairs
It always knows when you are there
Always there behind your back
Has no name and it's dressed in black

I'VE SEEN THE SIGNS
(Jeremy Clyde/Hugo Williams)

When I walked up the stairs
Your party was well under way
And everybody stopped dancing
As if I had something to say
Well I never felt much
Like a part of that crowd anyway

I've seen the signs
I've seen the signs - they're all around me
Do you think that I'm blind - they're all around me
And they tell me you're no longer mine

Well, you say that it's all right
You act as if nothing has changed
And I'm not even sure
If anyone's taken my place
But I know that it's over
Each time I look at your face

I've seen the signs
I've seen the signs - they're all around me
Do you think that I'm blind - they're all around me
And they tell me you're no longer mine

When your car pulled away
The people stopped talking to stare
And you looked back
And you waved
But you didn't see me standing there
I could tell that you weren't coming back
And I just didn't care

I've seen the signs
I've seen the signs - they're all around me
Do you think that I'm blind - they're all around me
And they tell me you're no longer mine

KNOW YOURSELF (from the motion picture "3 in the Attic")
(Wayne Irwin)

Here you'll find me
All of today and all tomorrow
All behind me
And it's for you, if you can follow
Winston silver people rightly happen to guess
The time of day, making dangerous waves
The basic thing is to know yourself
And control yourself
'Cause there's no-one else you can rely on

Here I'll be then, all of the day and all tomorrow
La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la
Love is all around you. You could think of a way
To even the score
But we won the war
The basic thing is to know yourself
And control yourself
'Cause there's no-one else you can rely on

Here I'll be then, all of the day and all tomorrow
La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la
Winston silver people rightly happen to guess
The time of day, making dangerous waves
The basic thing is to know yourself
And control yourself
'Cause there's no-one else you can rely on

LAST NIGHT
(Jeremy Clyde)

Last night, I told you many things
Last night, it'd hard remembering
I think I said that I loved you child
And at the time, it did seem wild
I know that I was high
Last night, I was out of my mind
Last night, don't think me unkind
It's just that you were by my side
If I remember right, I think I cried
You know that I was high

Forget all the things I said
This morning 'wish that was dead
Put down the phone, go back to bed
Forget it

Last night, I give you my word
That last night, whatever you heard
Was just a man who was very tired
You were just a face that I admired
You know that I was high
Last night will be the first and
Last night, oh, oh, yeah,
Think it over and then you'll will see
Tonight will be the first and last for me

LEMON TREE
(Holt)

When I just a lad of ten, my father said to me
Come here and take a lesson from the lovely lemon tree
Don't put your faith in love my boy, my father said to me
I fear you'll find that love is like the lovely lemon tree

Lemon tree, very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat
Lemon tree, very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat

One day beneath the lemon tree, my love and I did lie
She was so sweet that when she smiled, the stars rose in the sky
We passed that summer lost in love beneath the lemon tree
The music of her laughter hid my father's words from me

Lemon tree, very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat
Lemon tree, very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat

One day she left without a word, she took away the sun
And in the dark she left behind, I knew what she had done
She left me for another, a common tale but true
A sadder man but wiser now, I sing these words to you

Lemon tree, very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat
Lemon tree, very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat


LIKE I LOVE YOU TODAY
(Chad Stuart/Russell Alquist)

You've heard a lot of stories about me
But don't believe the things that people say
I'll be always true, I'll be loving you
Like I love you today

I've got a reputation all my own
But don't believe I'll ever go away
Listen to me do, I'll be loving you
Like I love you today

I've got kisses by the million
And I've got some more
I've got kisses by the million
Who, who do you think they're for?

After all is said and all is done
I'll be yours for ever and a day
You know that it's for sure, I'll love you more and more
Like I love you today


LITTLE DOES SHE KNOW
(Chad Stuart/Russell Alquist)

Little does she know how much I love her
Little does she care when I'm walking by
Little does she know, but I'm gonna show her
I could be the apple of her eye

Little does she see when I've been crying
And the many times that I've passed her door
Little does she know , but I'll keep on trying
To make her see it's me she's looking for

And ev'rywhere that she goes you can be sure that I
Am gonna be there too
That girl has gotta see how much she means to me
And that my love is true

Little does she hear the things I'm saying
I tell all my friends that she's oh so fine
Little does she know, but I'll go on praying
Some day soon I'm gonna make her mine

LOVE IS STRANGE
(Baker/Smith/Robinson)

Love
Love is strange
Many people
Take it for a game

People
Don't understand
They think lovin'
Is beautiful and grand

Baby
Oh my baby
Oh my baby
You're the one

Love
Love is strange
Many people
Take it for a game

Baby
Oh my baby
Oh my baby
You're the one


MANNERS MAKETH MAN
(Jeremy Clyde)

When I walked in that cafe
You turned and looked my way
You knew that you were being rude
To point and to stare
So why should I smile
When you put me on trial
And your daughter wants an autograph
And you don't like my hair

Perhaps you resent
A life that was spent
In hating an enemy
That you've never seen
You believed them when they said
There's a red beneath your bed
Am I a living symbol of your youth
That might have been?

Does it become clear
As you see me sitting here
So well behaved
And not like you expect?
And now do you see
That you were once like me?
But you missed out on a lot of things
By being too correct

You gave a loud guffaw
As I walked in the door
And you loudly said, "Hey look at that kid,
Will ya look at that kid, will ya?"
Then remembering your girl
You said, "Hey kid, sign for Merle"
Did you notice I was eating
And you didn't have the manners to say please


MISTER TAMBOURINE MAN
(Bob Dylan)

Hey Mister tambourine man, play a song for me
I'm not sleepy and there ain't no place I'm going to
Hey Mister tambourine man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning I'll come following you

Take me for a trip upon your magic swirling ship
All my senses have been stripped
And my hands can't feel to grip
And my toes too numb to step
Waiting only for my boot heels to go wanderin"

I'm ready to go anywhere
I'm ready for to fade
Until my own parade
Cast your dancing spell my way
I promise to go wanderin'

Hey Mister tambourine man, play a song for me
I'm not sleepy and there ain't no place I'm going to
Hey Mister tambourine man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning I'll come following you

MORNING
(Jeremy Clyde)

The sun was bright, the winds were clean in the morning
My days are night and you're a dream in the morning
Since you said goodbye, I cry in the morning, but it's evening
All day long now you are gone
Since you're leaving me

Light is gone and birds fly home in the morning
My days are dark and I'm alone in the morning
Since you said goodbye, I cry in the morning, but it's evening
All day long now you are gone
Since you're leaving me

Still I wake and reach out in the night
I dare not look for fear I might
Find you're no longer there
Find the morning glare far too bright
Do you miss me in the morning like I miss you?
Do you, do you, do you, do you?

'Til I'm with you once again in the morning
I will try to sleep again in the morning
People wonder why I cry in the morning
All day long now you are gone
Since you're leaving me

MY COLORING BOOK
(Kander/Ebb)

I've a most unusual coloring book
The kind you never see
Crayons ready? Very well, begin to color me

These are the eyes that watched her as she walked away
Color them grey
This is the heart that thought she would always be true
Color it blue
These are the arms that held her and touched her
And lost her somehow
Color them empty now
This is the tie I wore until he came between
Color it green

This is the room I sleep in and walk in and weep in
Hide in, that nobody sees
Color it lonely please
This is the girl, the one I depended upon
Color her gone

MY HOW THE TIME GOES BY
(Alquist/Stuart)

Each time I leave you it's like a lifetime
Love is the reason why
But when I'm here to hold you
My how the times goes by

I dont remember what time the clock said
Don't even want to try
You say it's past your bedtime
My how the time goes by

I know I'm gonna hate it leaving you
Where did the hours fly
I really don't know what I'm gonna do
Oh my, oh my

Kiss me again girl, kiss me and then girl
Kiss me a last goodbye
Wish I could stay forever
My how the time goes by

I know I'm gonna hate it leaving you
Where did the hours fly
I really don't know what I'm gonna do
Oh my, oh my

Kiss me again girl, kiss me and then girl
Kiss me a last goodbye
Wish I could stay forever
My how the time goes by

Wish I could stay forever
My how the time goes
My how the time goes
My how the time goes by
