PAPA'S GOT A BRAND NEW BAG – James Brown

Come here sister, Papa's in the swing
He ain't too hip, about that new breed babe
He ain't no drag
Papa's got a brand new bag

Come here mama, and dig this crazy scene
He's not too fancy,. but his line is pretty clean
He ain't no drag
Papa's got a brand new bag

He's doing the Jerk
He's doing the Fly
Don't play him cheap 'cause you know he ain't shy
He's doing the Monkey, the Mashed Potato, Jump back Jack, See you later alligator

Come here sister
Papa's in the swing
He ain't too hip now
But I can dig that new breed babe
He ain't no drag
He's got a brand new bag

Oh papa! He's doing the Jerk
Papa, he's doing the Jerk
He's doing the twist, just like this
He's doing the Fly ev'ry day and ev'ry night
The thing's like the Boomerang
Hey, come on
Hey! Hey, come on
Hey! Hey, he's uptight, out of sight
Come on. Hey! Hey!


PAPERBACK WRITER - John Lennon & Paul McCartney

Paperback writer

Dear Sir or Madam, will you read my book?
It took me years to write, will you take a look?
Based on a novel by a man named Lear
And I need a job, so I want to be a paperback writer
Paperback writer

It's the dirty story of a dirty man
And his clinging wife doesn't understand
His son is working for the Daily Mail
It's a steady job but he wants to be a paperback writer
Paperback writer

Paperback writer

It's a thousand pages, give or take a few
I'll be writing more in a week or two
I can make it longer if you like the style
I can change it round and I want to be a paperback writer
Paperback writer

If you really like it you can have the rights,
It could make a million for you overnight
If you must return it, you can send it here
But I need a break and I want to be a paperback writer
Paperback writer

Paperback writer

Paperback writer - paperback writer
Paperback writer - paperback writer.


PEACHES - Chris Ballew & The Presidents of the United States of America

Movin' to the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches
Movin' to the country, gonna eat me a lot of peaches
I'm movin' to the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches
Movin' to the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches

Peaches come from a can, they were put there by a man
In a factory downtown
If I had my little way, I'd eat peaches everyday
Sun soakin' bulges in the shade

Movin' to the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches
Movin' to the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches
I'm movin to the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches
Movin' to the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches

Took a little nap with a little twist
Squished a rotten peach in my fist
And dreamed about you woman
I put my finger down inside, makin' a little room for an ant to hide
Nature's candy in my hand or can or pie

Millions of peaches, peaches for me
Millions of peaches, peaches for free
Millions of peaches, peaches for me
Millions of peaches, peaches for free

Look Out!

Millions of peaches, peaches for me
Millions of peaches, peaches for free
Millions of peaches, peaches for me
Millions of peaches, peaches for free

Look Out!


PRETTY WOMAN - Roy Orbison

Pretty woman, walking down the street
Pretty woman, the kind I like to meet
Ppretty woman
I don't believe you
You're not the truth
No one could look as good as you
Mercy!

Pretty woman, won't you pardon me
Pretty woman, I couldn't help but see
Pretty woman
That you look lovely as can be
Are you lonely just like me
Rrrr

Pretty woman, stop awhile
Pretty woman, talk awhile
Pretty woman, give your smile to me

Pretty woman, yea yea yea
Pretty woman, look my way
Pretty woman, say you'll stay with me....

'Cause I need you, I'll treat you right
Come with me baby, be mine tonight.....

Pretty woman, don't walk on by
Pretty woman, don't make me cry
Pretty woman
Don't walk away, hey
OK
If that's the way it must be, ok
I guess I'll go on home, it's late
There'll be tomorrow night, but wait
What do I see

Is she walking back to me?
Yea; she's walking back to me
Oh, oh, pretty woman.

RADAR LOVE - B.Hay/G.Kooymans

I've been drivin' all night, my hands are wet on the wheel
There's a voice in my head that drives my heel
My baby called said I need you here
It's half past four and I'm shifting gears

When she's lonely and the longing gets too much
She sends a cable coming in from above
Don't need no phone at all
We got a thing that's called radar love
We got a wave in the air
Radar love

The radio's playin' some forgotten song
Brenda Lee's coming on strong
The road has got me hypnotized
As I spin into a new sunrise

When I get lonely and I'm sure I've had enough
She sends comfort coming in from above
Don't need no letters at all
We got a thing that's called radar love
We got a line in the sky
Radar love

No more speed I'm almost there
Gotta keep cool, now, gotta take care
Last car to pass, here I go
The line of cars drove down real slow
The radio plays that forgotten song
Brenda Lee's coming on strong
The news man sang his same song
One more radar lover gone

When I'm feeling lonely and I'm sure I've had enough
She sends the comfort coming in from above
Don't need no radio at all
We got a thing that's called radar love
We got a light in the sky
We got a thing and it's called radar love
We got a thing that's called
Radar love.


RAINBOW CONNECTION - Kenneth Ascher & Paul Williams

Why are there so many songs about rainbows
and what's on the other side?
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions
and rainbows have nothing to hide
So we've been told and some choose to believe it
I know they're wrong, wait and see
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me

Who said that every wish would be heard
and answered when wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that and someone believed it
Look what it's done so far
What's so amazing that keeps us star gazing
and what do we think we might see?
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me

All of us under its spell. We know that it's probably magic

Have you been half asleep and have you heard voices?
I've heard them calling my name
Is this the sweet sound that called the young sailors
The voice might be one and the same
I've heard it too many times to ignore it
It's something that I'm supposed to be
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me.


REET PETITE - B. Gordy/T. Carlo

Well look about, look about, look about, look about, ooh wee
Look about, look about, look about, look about, ooh wee
Ooh ah ooh ah, ooh wee

Well, she's so fine, fine, fine, she's fine f-fine
She's so fi-yi-yi-yi-yi-yine, she's so fine fine fine
She's really sweet, the finest girl you ever wanna meet

Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh
Reet petite, the finest girl you ever wanna meet

Well, have you ever seen a girl for whom your soul you'd give
For whom you'd fight for, die for, pray to God to live
'Cause she's so fine, she's so fine
She's really sweet, the finest girl you ever wanna meet

Well, she really fills her clothes from her head to toe
I want the world to know, I love her, love her so
She's alright, she's alright
She's alright, she loves me all day and night

Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh
Reet petite, the finest girl you ever wanna meet

Well, she's like honey from a bee, like peaches from a tree
I love her, need her, she means so much to me
She's alright, she’s got what it takes
She's got what it takes and with me she really rates

Well, now she's my cutie, my tutti frutti
My heart, my love, my bathing beauty
She's alright, she's got just what it takes
She's got what it takes and with me she really rates

Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh
Reet petite, the finest girl you ever wanna meet
Reet petite, the finest girl you ever wanna meet
Reet petite, the finest girl you ever wanna meet.


RIKKI DON'T LOSE THAT NUMBER - Donald Fagan & Walter Becker

We hear you're leaving, that's OK
I thought our little wild time had just begun
I guess you kind of scared yourself, you turn and run
But if you have a change of heart

Rikki don't lose that number
You don't wanna call nobody else
Send it off in a letter to yourself
Rikki don't lose that number
It's the only one you own
You might use it if you feel better
When you get home

I have a friend in town, he's heard your name
We can go out driving on Slow Hand Row
We could stay inside and play games I don't know
And you could have a change of heart

Rikki don't lose that number
You don't wanna call nobody else
Send it off in a letter to yourself
Rikki don't lose that number
It's the only one you own
You might use it if you feel better
When you get home

You tell yourself you're not my kind
But you don't even know your mind
And you could have a change of heart

Rikki don't lose that number
You don't wanna call nobody else
Send it off in a letter to yourself
Rikki don't lose that number
It's the only one you own
You might use it if you feel better
When you get home

Rikki don't lose that number
Rikki don't lose that number
Rikki don't lose that number.


ROUTE 66 - Bobby Troup

If you ever plan to motor west
Travel my way
Take the highway that's the best
Get your kicks on Route 66!

It winds from Chicago to L.A.
More than 2,000 miles all the way
Get your kicks on Route 66!

Now you go thru St. Louis, Joplin, Missouri!
And Oklahoma City looks mighty pretty
You'll see Amarillo, Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff, Arizona, don't forget Winona
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernardino

Won't you get hip to this timely tip
When you take that California trip
Get your kicks on Route 66!

SOMETHIN' STUPID - C. Carson Parks

I know I stand in line, until you think you have the time
To spend an evening with me
And if we go someplace to dance, I know that there's a chance
You won't be leaving with me

Then afterwards we drop into a quiet little place
And have a drink or two
And then I go and spoil it all, by saying somethin' stupid
Like: "I love you"

I can see it in your eyes, that you despise the same old lies
You heard the night before
And though it's just a line to you, for me it's true
It never seemed so right before

I practice every day to find some clever lines to say
To make the meaning come through
And then I guess I'll wait until the evening gets late
And I'm alone with you

The time is right your perfume fills my head, the stars go red
And oh the night's so blue
And then I go and spoil it all, by saying somethin' stupid
Like: "I love you"

The time is right your perfume fills my head, the stars go red
And oh the night's so blue
And then I go and spoil it all, by saying somethin' stupid
Like: "I love you"

"I love you, I love you,..."


STARMAN - David Bowie

Didn't know what time it was, when lights were low
I leaned back on my radio
Some cat was layin' down some rock 'n' roll, 'lotta soul, he said
Then the loud sound it seemed to fade
Came back like a slow voice on a wave of phase
That weren't no D.J., that was crazy cosmic jive

There's a starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us
But he thinks he'd blow our minds
There's a starman waiting in the sky
He's told us not to blow it
'Cos he knows it's all worthwhile
He told me:
Let the children lose it
Let the children use it
Let all the children boogie

I had to phone someone so I picked on you
Hey, that's far out, so you heard him, too
Switch on the TV, we may pick him up on channel two
Look out the window, I can see his light
If we can sparkle he may land tonight
Don't tell your mother or you'll get us locked up in fright

There's a starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us
But he thinks he'd blow our minds
There's a starman waiting in the sky
He's told us not to blow it
'Cos he knows it's all worthwhile
He told me:
Let the children lose it
Let the children use it
Let all the children boogie

Starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us
But he thinks he'd blow our minds
There's a starman waiting in the sky
He's told us not to blow it
'Cos he knows it's all worthwhile
He told me:
Let the children lose it
Let the children use it
Let all the children boogie.


STRONG - Robbie Williams & Guy Chambers

My breath smells of a thousand fags
And when I'm drunk I dance like me Dad
I've started to dress a bit like him

Early morning when I wake up
I look like Kiss but without the make up
And that's a good line to take it to
The bridge

And you know and you know
'Cos my life's a mess
And I'm trying to grow so before
I'm old I'll confess
You think that I'm strong you're wrong
You're wrong
I'll sing my song my song my song

My bed's full of takeaways and fantasies
Of easy lays
The pause button's broke on my video
And is this real 'cos I feel fake
Oprah Winfrey Rikki Lake
Teach me things I don't need to know

And you know and you know
'Cos my life's a mess
And I'm trying to grow so before
I'm old I'll confess
You think that I'm strong you're wrong
You're wrong
I'll sing my song my song my song

If I did it all again I'd be a nun
The rain was never cold when I was young
I'm still young we're still young
Life's too short to be afraid
Step inside the sun

And you know and you know
'Cos my life's a mess
And I'm trying to grow

And you know and you know
'Cos my life's a mess
And I'm trying to grow

And you know and you know
'Cos my life's a mess
And I'm trying to grow

You think that I'm strong you're wrong
You're wrong
I'll sing my song my song my song

You think that I'm strong you're wrong
You're wrong
I'll sing my song my song my song

Life's too short to be afraid
So take a pill to numb the pain
You don't have to take the blame

Life's too short to be afraid
So take a pill to numb the pain
You don't have to take the blame.
