Album: Private Dancer - 1984

Nineteen Eighty Four
Someday they won't let you
Now you must agree
The times they are a telling
And the changing isn't free
You read it in the tea leaves
And the tracks are on TV
Beware the Savage Jaw
In Nineteen Eighty Four
They'll split your pretty cranium
And fill it full of air
They'll tell you that you're eighty
And really you won't care
You'll be shooting up on everything
Tomorrow's never there
Beware the Savage Jaw
In Nineteen Eighty Four

Come see, come see
Remember me
I played in an all night movie role
You said it would last
But I guess we've enrolled
In Nineteen Eighty Four
Who could ask for more
Nineteen Eighty Four
Who could ask for more

I'm looking for a vehicle
I'm looking for a ride
I'm looking for a party
I'm looking for a side
I'm looking for a treason
That I knew in Sixty Five
Beware the savage roar
In Nineteen Eighty Four

Come see, come see
Remember me
I played in an all night movie role
You said it would last
But I guess we've enrolled
In Nineteen Eighty Four
Who could ask for more
Nineteen Eighty Four
Who could ask for more
Nineteen Eighty Four

A change is gonna come
A change is gonna come

Album: Tina Live in Europe - 1988

I was born by the river in a little tent
Oh, and like that river I've been running ever since
It's been a long, long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come
Oh yes it is

It's been too hard living and I'm afraid to die
I don't know what's up there beyond the sky
It's been a long, long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come
Oh yes it is

I go to the movies and I go around in town
Everybody there keeps telling me "don't hang around"
It's been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come
Oh yes it is

Then I go to my brother
And I say "Brother, please"
But he just winds up, knocking me
Back down on my knees

Sometimes I thought I wouldn't last for long
But now I think I'm able to carry on
It's been a long, long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come
Oh yes it is


A fool in love
A fool in love

Single: A fool in love - 1960

There's something on my mind
Won't somebody please, please tell me what's wrong

[Chorus:]
You're just a fool, you know you're in love
You've got to face it to live in this world
You take the good along with the bad
Sometimes you're happy and sometimes you're sad
You know you love him, you can't understand
Why he treats you like he do when he's such a good man

He's got me smiling when I should be ashamed
Got me laughing when my heart is in pain
Oh no, I must be a fool
Cause I'll do anything you want me to do

[Chorus]

Without my man I don't wanna live
You think I'm lying but I'm telling you like it is
He's got my nose open and that's no lie
And I, I'm gonna keep him satisfied

[Chorus]

Waves of action speak louder than words
The truest thing that I ever heard
I trust my man and all that he do
And I, and I'll do anything you want me to do


Absolutely nothing's changed
Absolutely nothing's changed

Album: Twenty Four Seven - 1999

Absolutely nothing's changed
This is my heart talking
It's time to face reality
This spell I'm under can't last much longer
Any fool can see
You come here with your promises
But I remember all the lies
I bought the laughter, happy ever after
How could I be so blind, so blind

[Chorus:]
'Cause absolutely nothing's changed
You play with my emotions
I'll live to fight another day
I_m bruised but I ain't broken, I ain't broken

Now you say you're sorry
For everything you put me through
You wanna make up, I just gotta wake up
It's the same old you
The same old you

[Chorus]

Ooh I've been dreaming but it's over now
(Bad dreams are over now)
I'm gonna rise up, rise above all the troubles and tears
I'm down but I ain't out
(Play with my emotions I may be bruised, I ain't broken)
'Cause absolutely nothing's changed
At last my eyes are open
I'm gonna live to fight another day
I may be bruised but I ain't broken, ain't broken
'Cause absolutely nothing's changed
Absolutely nothing
I'll live to fight another day
I may be bruised but I ain't broken
'Cause absolutely nothing's changed
Absolutely nothing
I'm gonna live to fight another day
I may be bruised but I ain't broken
'Cause absolutely nothing's changed


Acid Queen
Acid Queen

LP: Acid Queen (originally from Pete Townshend of the Who) - 1975

If your child ain't all he should be now
This girl will put him right
I'll show him what he could be now
Just give me one night
I'm the Gypsy - The acid Queen
Pay before we start
I'm the Gypsy - The acid queen
I'll tear your soul apart

Give us a room and close the door
Leave us for a while
Your boy won't be a boy no more
Young, but not a child
I'm the Gypsy - The acid queen
Pay before we start
I'm the Gypsy - The acid queen
I'll tear your soul apart

Gather your wits and hold on fast
Your mind must learn to roam
Just as the Gypsy Queen must do
You're gonna hit the road
My work is done now look at him
He's never been more alive
His head it shakes his fingers clutch
Watch his body writhe
I'm the Gypsy - The acid queen
Pay before we start
I'm the Gypsy - I'm guaranteed
To break your little heart


Addicted to love
Addicted to love

Single: Addicted to Love - 1988 (originally from Robert Palmer)

The lights are on but you're not home
Your mind is not your own
Your body sweats, your body shakes
Another kiss is what it takes
You can't eat, you can't sleep
There's no doubt you're in deep
Your throat is tight, you can't breathe
Another kiss is all you need

You like to think that you're immune to the stuff, oh, yeah
It's closer to the truth, you know
You're gonna have to face it
You might as well face it, you're addicted to love

You see the signs but you can't read
You're running at a different speed
Your heart beats at double time
Another kiss and you'll be mine
One track mind, you can't be saved
Another young love is all you crave
And if the sun left you
You don't mind if you do

You like to think that you're immune to the stuff, oh, yeah
It's closer to the truth, you see
You're gonna have to face it
You're gonna have to face that you're addicted to love

You might as well face it, you're addicted to love


Afterglow
Afterglow

Album: Break every rule - 1986

I need you here beside me to chase the night away
I need your love to guide me safe through another day
I lie and watch the lights go down
Say goodnight to another town
And though it hurts to be alone
I have my thoughts of you to keep me warm
In the afterglow of your love
Dreaming's all I'm guilty of
Everyday I'm playing tough
But read my mind

[Chorus:]
If you could see me now
Just living my life in a limbo
If you could see me now
The me that only you would know
Still burning in the afterglow

When the beat of the drum has faded
The show comes to an end
The stage is cleared and loaded
And the highway calls again
I stand and watch the lights go down
In the afterglow of your love
Dreaming's all I'm guilty of
Everyday I'm playing tough
But read my mind

[Chorus]

If you could see me now

Stay with me right to the end
Till I can hold you again

[Chorus]


All kinds of people
All kinds of people

Album: Wildest Dreams - 1996

There's a time for love and a time for healing
Can't go back and undo what's been done
The word of mouth, time is revealing
Just how far we've left this kingdom come

Hand in hand we're finding our way
And today is just tomorrow's yesterday

[Chorus:]
Some will die for you, some will lie to you
There's all kinds of people in this world
Turn the world around, tear the borders down
There's all kinds of people in this world

Kiss of life and the hand of fate
Boy grows up into his father's son
And he learns to love, has been taught to hate
To carry on the way it had been done

All our lives, it's debts to repay
Maybe someday we can put the past away

[Chorus]

Some will die for you, some will lie to you
There's all kinds of people in this world
Put your fear away, find a better way
There's all kinds of people in this world

Underneath a broken sky
Love can heal the pain inside
In a moment things can change
One look behind and it's never the same


All the woman
All the woman

Album: Twenty Four Seven - 1999

Don't walk crowded streets
Choose every dream from a magazine stand
I don't buy into that
All day TV shows
Sell their souls just to make living easy
I don't buy into that
I don't need satin and lace (No, no, no)
I'll bring a smile to your face

I'll never be a fire but I will be the flame
I'll never be a diamond but I'll never be fake
No I've never been a winner but I still play the game
Can't you see, this is me
I'm all the woman that I wanna be
Good times, can't get enough
Life can be tough but it's all for a reason
I sure buy into that
Life goes around and around
We seek what we found 'cause it's all an illusion
I sure buy into that
I know the waters of fate
Will keep on flowing my way

I'll never be a fire but I will be the flame
I'll never be a diamond but I'll never be fake (No, no)
I've never been a winner but I still play the game
Baby can't you see, this is me
I'm all the woman that I want...
I've never been afraid of myself
I don't buy into that, I don't buy into that
I don't wanna be nobody else
I don't buy into that
I don't buy into that
I don't buy into that

I'll never be a fire but I will be the flame (Be the flame)
I'll never be a diamond but I'll never be fake (Oh no, no, no)
I've never been a winner but I still play the game
Baby baby can't you see that this is me
I'm all the woman that I want (All I wanna be)
I'll never be a fire but I will be the flame (Be the flame)
I'll never be a diamond but I'll never be fake (Oh no, no, no)
I've never been a winner but I still play the game
Can't you see, this is me
And I'm all the woman that I wanna be


Amazing Grace
Amazing Grace

LP: The gospel according to Ike and Tina - 1974

Amazing Grace!
How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind but now I see

'T was Grace that taught my heart to fear
And Grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed

My Chains are gone, I've been set free
My God my savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy reigns
Unending love, AMAZING GRACE

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come
'Tis Grace has brought me safe thus far
And Grace will lead me home

The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures

Yet, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun,
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we've first begun

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow
The sun forbear to shine
But GOD who calls me hear below
Will be forever mine
You are forever mine


Are you breaking my heart
Are you breaking my heart

Single: Are you breaking my heart - 1980

You go out to see the red
And you ain’t here
Sometimes you don’t come back
Leaving me waisted and wet
My heart’s not that bad
You come your way home to sleep
If you want something special
Oh you’ve got that in me

Well I need an explanation
Seems there’s no communication
What you doing here baby?
If you wanna leave

I went down to the collar
To the liquor store
Has the music stops playing
I just can’t hear it no more
There’s just one question
That’s on my mind
Are you breaking my heart?
Are you wasting my time?

Are you keeping another secret?
I’ve got know from the start
What you’re trying to do baby?
Are you breaking my heart?

Are you breaking my heart?
Are you breaking my heart?
Are you breaking my heart?
Wasting my time?
Are you breaking my heart?

Are you breaking my heart?
Are you breaking my heart?
Are you breaking my heart?
Are you wasting my time?
Are you breaking my heart?

Well now for your information
You can take it or leave
I can give you satisfaction
I’m eager to please
I’m in the streets gonna struck my star
Cause you have just given me
sure way enough

You’ve gotta make a decision
You’re wasting your time and mine
What you’re gonna do baby
Are you breaking my heart?

Are you breaking my heart?
Are you breaking my heart?
Are you breaking my heart?
Are you wasting my time?
Are you breaking my heart?

Are you breaking my heart?
Are you breaking my heart?
Are you breaking my heart?
Are you wasting my time?
Are you breaking my heart?

Are you breaking my heart?
Are you breaking my heart?
Are you breaking my heart?
You’ve got our lives on the line
Are you breaking my heart?

Are you breaking my heart?

Are you breaking my heart?
Are you breaking my heart?
Are you breaking my heart?
Are you wasting my time?
Are you breaking my heart?


Ask me how I feel
Ask me how I feel

Album: Foreign Affair - 1989

Oh, I'm waiting in the storm, ask me how I feel
When things are going wrong, why don't you ask me how I feel
The night is awful cold, ask me how I feel
You're much too loose to hold, why don't you ask me how I feel

I close my eyes, to follow you
To my surprise, you're so untrue
And I'm crying, I'm dying

Oh, I'm waiting in the storm, ask me how I feel
When you keep me hanging on, why don't you ask me how I feel
The waters run so deep, ask me how I feel
When I don't get any sleep, why don't you ask me how I feel

And when you're down, you lean on me
You're a fool, too blind to see
That I'm crying, I'm dying

Oh, I'm waiting in the storm, why don't you ask me how I feel?
What the hell is going on, why don't you ask me how I feel?
When you stay out late at night, ask me how I feel
When you think that I'm uptight, why don't you ask me how I feel oh

You don't treat me tender, no matter what I do
But I'm the great pretender, whoa...

I'm waiting in the storm, ask me how I feel
What the hell is going on?
When you stay out late at night
You never ask me how I feel
You just say that I'm uptight
When you're down, I do for you
And now I find that you're untrue


A woman in a man's world
A woman in a man's world

Album: Rough - 1978

His always right
I’m always wrong
Because his weak
I must be strong
That’s the way it is
That’s just the way it is
When you’re a woman in a man’s world

If I said it’s white
He said it’s black
When he runs away
I take him back
That’s the way it is
That’s just the way it is
To love a man in a man’s world
But if I used my head instead of my heart
I find someone else to care for
‘Cause there’s just overused and trying to be a side
‘Cause I know I been there to love him more

More I give
The more he takes
I live inside
The world he makes
That’s the way it is
That’s just the way it is
To love a man in a man’s world
That’s the way it is
That’s just the way it is
To love a man in a man’s world

Backstabbers
Backstabbers

Album: Love Explosion - 1979

Smiling in my face
All the time they want to take my place to backstabbers

And if you really
Really care
Then I’m telling everybody

To take your baby
And I feel your best scream
Sure look shady
Blades are long
Clenched tight in their fist
Aimin straight at your back
And I just don’t think they’ll miss

They keep smiling in your face
All the time they want to take your place to backstabbers
A house full of visits
Always around
Calling to serve my friends
All they keep coming around time and
Time and time and time again
I know they trying
To take my baby
Even though I’m never home
They just keep on coming
What can I do
To get them on the right track
I wish they’d take these knives off my back

They keep smiling in your face
All the time they want to take my place to backstabbers

They keep smiling in my face
All the time they want to take my place
Talk about backstabbers


Ball of confusion
Ball of confusion

Single: Ball of confusion - 1982

People moving out, people moving in
Why, because of the color of their skin
Run, run, run, but you just cant hide

An eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth
Vote for me and Ill set you free
Rap on, brother, rap on

Well, the only person talking about
Loving thy brother is the preacher
And it seems nobodys interested
In learning, but the teacher

Segregation, demonstration
Integration, determination
Aggravation, humiliation
Obligation to our nation

Ball of confusion
Thats what the world is today
Hey, hey

The sale of pills is at an all time high
Young folks walk with their heads in the sky
The cities aflame in the summertime
And, oh, the beat goes on

Evolution, revolution, gun control
The sound of soul, shooting rockets to the moon
Kids growing up too soon
Politicians say, "More taxes will solve everything"
The band played on

So, 'round and around and around we go
Where the worlds headed, nobody knows

Oh, Great Googamooga
Cant you hear me talking to you
Just a ball of confusion
Thats what the world is today
Hey, hey

Fear in the air, tension everywhere
Unemployment rising fast
The Beatles new records a gas
And the only safe place to live
Is on an Indian reservation
The band played on

Eve of destruction, tax deduction
City inspectors, bill collectors, mod clothes in demand
Population out of hand, suicide, too many bills
Hippies moving to the hills
People all over the world are shouting, "End the war"
And the band played on

Great Googamooga
Cant you hear me talking to you
Just a ball of confusion
Thats what the world is today
Yeah, yeah

Just a ball of confusion,
I tell you thats what the world is today
Yeah, yeah
Just a ball of confusion, oh


Bayou Song
Bayou Song

LP: Tina turns the country on! - 1974

Just another Louisiana morning
Bayou rain falling without warning
Babies crying

Windows dirty
I can't see out them
Sitting and smoking and thinking about it
Lord Im so tired

I've been out working in the long cold night,
Im too tired to eat, to hungry to fight

Working for the man as hard as I can,
trying to make a living in this bayou land

Good lord what kind of life is this for my baby
It's bad enough I gotta suffer it myself
Take our love
takes us from this bayou country
Let the bayou bog starve by itself

Just another Lousiana afternoon
Drinking homemade liquor 2 ounce smooth
Till ya hanging

Dont talk much cause the pain is crazy
times are hard, things are hazy
Lord im so tired

To make it in this town you gotta work all over
When I get home I start all over
Half dead by the end of the night
But its what I gotta do to get my man a good life

Good lord what kind of life is this for my baby
Its bad enough I gotta suffer it myself
Take our love
takes us from this bayou country
Let the bayou bog starve by itself
Let the bayou bog drink itself to hell


Break every rule
Break every rule

Album: Break every rule - 1986

Every road that I walk
Every single flight I ever take
Though I'm thousands of miles away
In my mind every journey leads me closer to you
I've been all around this world
I've been in far too many states
But I'm under your spell
I've made my mistakes, oh, you can probably tell

You're every dream that I dream
You're every beautiful thing I've ever seen
I'm always singing your praises
Counting the days away

[Chorus:]
I would be your slave
I'd even be your fool
I'm so in love with you
I'm in love with you baby
I'm gonna break every rule

I hope you can forgive
Every white lie I'm forced to tell
They say that everything's fair in love and in war
And I'm not above cheating for you
One night I'll catch you off your guard
And you will finally fall so hard
Strategically speaking I'm already beaten
I'll surrender to you
You're every dream that I dream
You're every beautiful thing I've ever seen
I'm always singing your praises
Counting the days away

[Chorus]

Every road that I walk on
Every flight that I ever take
Every dream that I dream of
Every journey brings me closer to you

Back where you started
Back where you started

Album: Break every rule - 1986

Baby, tell me what you're trying to prove
Playing games with my heart
Hey now listen, I ain't gonna take one more night
You're the one who broke the rules
And I'm the one who played the fool
Now you're trying to tell me it's alright
You should know better than to hurt a friend
You'll never get another chance again

[Chorus:]
You'll be back where you started
I know you won't admit it but you're broken-hearted
Back where you started
You think it's gonna be easy but it just gets harder, harder

You had a way with words
One look and I was under your spell
I didn't know should I stay or should I run
You can't deny you told me lies
Love 'em and leave 'em, baby, that's your style
I'm not afraid to take life as it comes
You play with fire I guess you'll never learn
You mess with me, babe, you 're gonna get burned

You'll be back where you started
Then you'll know how it feels when you've been discarded
Back where you started
You think you got it made but it won't get you far, no it won't get you far

Who's gonna help ya, throw you a lifetime
I'll tell you one thing, you've really done it this time
You took your one chance and let it slip away
You're not the kind who'll ever settle down
The rumor's getting out all over town
You'll be...

[Chorus]


Be tender with me baby
Be tender with me baby

Album: Foreign Affair - 1989

You got the right to tell me it's all over
It isn't like me to be, begging you
Don't let go, don't let go
Just stay with me another day
When I'm not myself, please understand me
I'm so confused I don't know, what to do
But don't give up, don't give up
It just may take a little time

[Chorus:]
Be tender with me baby
I'm so afraid you'll go away
Be tender with me baby
Always, for always

I know that you've been patient with my weakness
And that you hate to see me cry
But I know, yes I know
It doesn't hurt to be this way
But I'm so lonely I could die

[Chorus]

Why does my heart keep hurting
Why do I feel like I do
I hope you see this is not really me
It's just a phase that I'm going through

[Chorus]


Better be good to me
Better be good to me

Album: Private Dancer - 1984

A prisoner of your love
Entangled in your web
Hot whispers in the night
I’m captured by your spell
Captured

Yes I’m touched by this show of emotion
Should I be fractured by your lack of devotion
Should I
Should I
You better be good to me
That’s how it’s gonna be now
’Cause I don’t have no use
For what you usually call the truth
And you better be good to me
Better be good

Come on
Come on
Be good to me
I think it’s also right
That we don’t need to fight
We stand face to face
You present your case
Yes I know
You keep telling me that you love me
And I really do wanna believe
But did you think I’d just accept you
In blind faith
Sure baby
Anything to please you
As you better be good to me
That’s how it’s gonna be now
‘Cause I don’t have the time
For your over loaded lines
As you better be good to me
You better be good
Good to me
Be good to me

And I really don’t see
Why it’s so hard to be
Good to me
And you know
I don’t understand
What’s your plan
That you can’t be
Good to me
What I can’t feel
I surely cannot see
Why can’t you be
Good to me
And if it’s not real
I do not wish to see
Why don’t you be
Good to me
Why can’t you be
Good to me
Why can’t you be
Good to me
Why can’t you be
Good to me
Why can’t you be
Good to me
Why can’t you be
Good to me
Be good
Be good to me

’Cause I don’t have no use
For what you usually call the truth
And I don’t have the time
For your over loaded lines
So you better be good to me
You better be good
Better be good to me
Better be good
‘Cause I don’t have the time
For your over loaded lines
And I don’t have no use
For what you usually call the truth
And you better be good to me
Be good to me
Be good
Be good to me
’Cause I don’t have no use
For what you usually call the truth
And I don’t have the time
For your over loaded lines
You better be good to me
Good to me
Better be
Good to me
Be good
Be good to me

Bootsey Whitelaw
Bootsey Whitelaw

Album: Acid Queen - 1975

Papa died when I was born
So all I ever knew was my mom
I tell you that I, I never ever went to school
My mama told me all about street rules
Mama told me everything about
Not about Mr. Bootsey Whitelaw

He was tall, big and tan
I tell you he was a hell of a good looking man
Between his eyes he had too frown
He never laugh or play around
Mama told me everything about
But not about Mr. Bootsey Whitelaw
Bop along
Bop along
Bop along
Mr. Bootsey Whitelaw
Bop along
Bop along
Bop along
Mr. Bootsey Whitelaw Mama told me everything about
But not about Mr. Bootsey Whitelaw

He lived way up across town
Women love him for miles around
I loved him right from the start
I didn’t even care if he broke my heart
Mama told me everything about
But not about Mr. Bootsey Whitelaw
I said along
Bop along
Bop along
Mr. Bootsey Whitelaw
I said along
Bop along
Bop along
Mr. Bootsey Whitelaw
Mama told me everything about
But not about Bootsey Whitelaw

I beg and pose along
‘Cause I want him more this time
But he promised me all along
He told me that he could never be bad alone
And so I asked my mama what could I do
But she told me she loved Mr. Bootsey too
Bop along
Bop along
Bop along
Mr. Bootsey Whitelaw
Bop along
Bop along
Bop along
Mr. Bootsey Whitelaw
Mama told me everything about
But not about Mr. Bootsey Whitelaw
I said along
Bop along
Bop along
Mr. Bootsey Whitelaw
Bop along
Bop along
Bop along
Mr. Bootsey Whitelaw
Mama told me everything
But not about Bootsey Whitelaw


Break through the barrier
Break through the barrier

Album: Days of thunder - 1990

Look for empty roads to travel
and grab some peace of mind
when my life seems to unravel
strenght from you I'll find
like the ocean and the sunshine
I'll keep trying till you're all minetill the moment is right
I won't give up the fight
I'll keep pushing till I break through the barrier
like a phoenix arises
ain't no mountain too high
I'll keep pushing till I break through the barrierlike the eyes of total strangers
our future is unknown
in a world of hidden danger
don't want to be alone
like a rainbow and the starlight
I'll keep holding on till you're minetill the moment is right
I won't give up the fight
I'll keep pushing till I break through the barrier
like a phoenix arises
ain't no mountain too high
I'll keep pushing till I break through the barrierwhen it seems that the odds are all against you
gotta reach inside and find the strenght to pull you through

it's not enough to love each other, baby
to make it right is gonna take some time
if I could only break through your barrier

Complicated disaster
Complicated disaster

Album: All the best - 2004

She knows about me
I heard about your secret life
She thinks that you're a family man
You got two babies and a wife

I never thought you'd sink this love
Two many lovers in this wrong
I'm sufocating

And now you're standing in front of me
Begging me not to leave
Complicated disaster
And as I struggle to understand
What became of the man who
Promised me ever after

I turn away but I can't run
You're all that I remember

It's been three hours
Since she shared her story in this room
She seems like such a gentle girl
You came and left her much too soon

She said it lasted just six months

The fear of being completely wrong
Has taken over

And now you're standing in front of me
Begging me not to leave
Complicated disaster
And as I struggle to understand
What became of the man who
Promised me ever after

I turn away but I can't run
You're all that I remember

All the plans we were making
Just got washed away with the tears
I'm drowning
But you can't save me
This time

Complicated disaster

And now you're standing in front of me
Begging me not to leave
Complicated disaster
And as I struggle to understand
What became of the man who
Promised me ever after


Confidential
Confidential

Album: Wildest Dreams - 1996

You don’t need to give me reasons
I understand
Some things are best kept secret
And you’ve done all you can
I want
No recompense
Just as much as you can give of yourself
If that makes sense
I’ll keep it
Confidential
Each secret
Confidential
It may come as some surprise
But I can stay secret from prying eyes
So don’t worry I’ll keep it
Confidential between you and me

Go on tell me that you love me
Show me you dare
We may not venture out in public
At least I know you care
It can’t
Be guaranteed
Just give me what you can of yourself
That’s all I need
I’ll keep it
Confidential
Each secret
Confidential
It may come as some surprise
But I can stay secret from prying eyes
So don’t worry I’ll keep it
Confidential between you and me

No one will know
Who I am
I think it’s possible
Only to love

You play
Such silly games
But if everyone knew about us
I’d feel no shame
But I’ll keep it
Confidential
Each secret
Confidential
It may come as some surprise
But I can stay secret from prying eyes
So don’t worry I’ll keep it
Confidential between you and me

Confidential
Each secret
Confidential

Secret

Each secret
Confidential
Secret

Each secret
Confidential


Cose della vita
Cose della vita

Single: Cose della vita - 1997

Sono umane situazioni
Quei momenti fra di noi
I distacchi ed i ritorni
Da capirci niente poi
Gia come vedi
Sto pensando a te...si...da un po'

They're just human contradictions
Feeling happy feeling sad
These emotional transitions
All the memories we've had
Yes, you know it's true
I just can't stop thinking of you

No I just can't pretend
All the time we spent could die
Wanna feel it again
All the love we felt then

Confinanti di cuore solo che ognuno sta
Dietro gli steccati degli orgogli suoi
Sto pensando a te
Sto pensando a noi

Sono cose della vita
Vanno prese un po' cosi
Some for worse and some for better
But through it all we've come so far
Gia...come vedi
Io sto ancora in piedi perche

Sono umani tutti i sogni miei
Con le mani io li prenderei, si perch¨
What's life without a dream to hold?
Take my hand and never let me go

It's part of life together
But what future does it hold?
Sono cose della vita
Ma la vita poi dov'e

Yes, you know it's true
I just can't stop thinking of you
Questa notte che passa piano accanto a me
Cerco di affrontarla, afferrarla
If our hearts miss a beat
Or get lost like a ship at sea
I wanna remember, I can never forget

Can't stop thinking of you
Sto pensando a noi
Can't stop thinking of you
Can't stop


Crazy 'bout you baby
Crazy 'bout you baby

Album: Outta Season (originally from Sonny Boy Williamson) - 1969

I can't sleep at night.
I cat nap thru the day,
can't go on much longer babe,
I can't live this way.
You know I'm crazy bout you baby
and I wonder do you ever think of me.

You know I'm wild about you baby,
but you don't care,
nothin in the world for me.

You know it ain't but one thing baby,
making your favorite drink,
but to hear you say you don't love me,
then I begin to think,
cause now you know I'm so crazy bout you baby
and I wonder do you ever think of me.

You know I'm wild about you baby,
and you don't care,
nothin in the world for me.

You know I'm crazy bout you baby
and I wonder do you ever think of me.

You know I'm wild about you baby,
and you don't care,
nothin in the world for me.

Sometimes, I sit and wonder
What am I gonna do?
I guess, if I try hard enough
Did I forget about you

Right now I'm crazy bout you baby
and I wonder do you ever think of me.

You know I'm wild about you baby
, and you don't care,
nothin in this world for me

I am so crazy about you baby
Just wild about you baby
I'm hooked, lined and synced
Cause you bout to driving me to drink


Crazy in the night
Crazy in the night

Album: Summer Lovers - 1982

Somewhere out in the galaxy
A number's up but not for me
There's a light inside the window
And the curtain's coming down
Pig is on the spit and turning round

Going crazy in the night
Crazy in the night

Dropped in from Munich with a master plan
Guess he left his wife and kids at home
He's got so much money rollin'
From the crimes he'll commit
But the Siamese cats are gonna take a little bit

Going crazy in the night
Crazy in the night
Will I turn and run or do I stand and face the gun...oh
Going crazy in the night
Everybody seemed to have lost their way
Crazy in the night
Seems there's no way outta here
Do I turn and run....No!

Got no hands but I've got my head
I've come so far from the temple
Maybe this is Babylon or maybe it's a dream
If it weren't so beautiful, it would be obscene
Drinking with the panthers, dancing for their life
God, this place is hungry
Come and see the players but don't stay for the show
The cats are out tonight, hungry for their rites

Going crazy in the night
Crazy in the night
Will I turn and run or do I stand and face the gun
Going crazy in the night
Everybody seemed to've lost their way
Crazy in the night
Seems there's no way outta here
Will I turn and run...No

Got no hands but I've got my head
I've come so far from the temple
Maybe this is Babylon or maybe its a dream
If it weren't so beautiful



Dancing in my dreams
Dancing in my dreams

Album: Wildest Dreams - 1996

I've been running from the truth
I've been running since my youth
Tired of the running
I will stand here till you see
I am you and you are me
Tired of the running

There really is no difference when you look beneath the skin
Someday I know we'll go beyond this world we're living in

[Chorus:]
Now when I lay me down to sleep
I will be dancing in my dreams
Seeing the way it all should be
I will be dancing
Now when I lay me down to sleep
I will be dancing in my dreams
Seeing the way it all should be
I will be dancing
Dancing in my dreams

There's no hiding in the dark
From the beating of my heart
It's getting louder
Just as long as we believe
The truth will set us free
It's getting louder

All that really matters is the light in your face
In you I see the longing of the whole human race

[Chorus]

On and on the story goes
Or it's the passing of the torch
With one small voice it all begins
Then there are millions more
Millions more

[Chorus]


(Darlin') You know I love you
(Darlin') You know I love you

Album: What's love got to do with it - 1993

I know you love me baby
But you never tell me so
I know you love me baby
But you never tell me so
If you don't tell me that you love me
I'm gonna pack my bags and go

I live across the street from the jukebox baby
All night long they play the blues
I live across the street from the jukebox baby
All night long they play the blues
Everytime they spin that record
Honey it makes me think of you

One little song in particular baby
Always sticks in my mind
One little song in particular baby
Always sticks in my mind
Everytime they play it baby
I start right into cryin'
Oh baby please don't leave me

Now I'm gonna crawl across my bed, baby
Cry myself to sleep
Yeah I'm gonna crawl across my bed baby
Cry myself to sleep
And in my dreams I hear you saying
Lover please come back to me


Disco Inferno
Disco Inferno

Album: What's love got to do with it - 1993

To my surprise one hundred stories high
People getting loose now, getting down on the roof
Folks screaming, out of control
It was so entertaining when the boogie starts to explode

[Chorus:]
I heard somebody say
(Burn baby burn) Disco Inferno (Burn baby burn)
Burn that mother down
(Burn baby burn) Disco Inferno (Burn baby burn)
Burn that mother down

Satisfaction came in a chain reaction
I couldn't get enough, so I had to self-destruct
The heat was on, rising to the top
Everybody is going strong, and that is when my spark got hot
I heard somebody say
(Burn baby burn) Disco Inferno (Burn baby burn)
Burn that mother down
(Burn baby burn) Disco Inferno (Burn baby burn)
Burn that mother down

Up above my head
I hear music in the air (I hear music)
That makes me know
There's a party somewhere

(Just can't stop) When my spark gets hot
(Just can't stop) When my spark gets hot


Don't leave me this way
Don't leave me this way

Album: Twenty Four Seven - 1999

All of my life, all of my life
I've been searching for a love like ours
Somewhere to stay, somewhere safe in your arms
I was so sure
Are you really saying your heart's changing?
Do you really mean goodbye?

[Chorus:]
Don't leave me this way, no, no
Don't tell me it's over
We've only begun and our love is so young
You're leaving me nowhere
Don't leave me this way
Don't leave me this way

Say what's on your mind, one thing at a time
And I promise you, we'll talk it through
Don't walk away, there's so much more to say
Though my words seem lost on you
Can't believe you're talking like we're just friends
Can't you see the tears I've cried?

[Chorus]

Are you really saying your heart's changing?
Do you really mean it this time?
Baby...Don't leave me this way, oh no

[Chorus]


Don't rush the good things
Don't rush the good things

Single: What's love got to do with it - 1984

Bought me a bottle of wine
I'm gonna drink it tonight
And you can join me
It's gonna make us feel alright

Don't rush the good things
Don't rush the good things in life
Don't rush the good things
Don't rush the good things in life

I'm gonna sip it slowly
I'm not gonna rock it back
I am no historier but i
I've learned from my past what I've learned

Don't rush the good things
Don't rush the good things in life
Don't rush the good things
Don't rush the good things in life

It's a slow job falling in love
It's a slow job
Falling in love it's a slow job
Don't rush good things tonight

You and me baby
No need to rush it tonight
Cause we got all the time in the world
Get it back, get it back
Get it back, get it back
Get it, get it, get it, get it

Don't rush the good things
Don't rush the good things in life
Don't rush the good things
Don't rush the good things in life

It's a slow job falling in love
It's a slow job tonight
It's a slow job falling in love
It's a slow job tonight

Don't rush the good things
Don't rush the good things in life
Don't rush the good things
Don't rush the good things in life
Get it back, get it back
Get it back, get it back
Get it, get it, get it, get it

Don't rush the good things
Don't rush the good things in life


Don't talk now
Don't talk now

LP: Tina turns the country on! (originally from James Taylor) - 1974

Where I've been, you don't know. And what I've got, baby, it don't show.
Now, I won't try to teach you how, don't talk now.
Don't talk roads, don't talk sand. Don't talk dust, don't talk no man.
Don't talk rules, don't talk vows, don't talk now.

I don't wanna hear the same old song,
and too many rights still make her wrong, baby.
I know she can't hurt me less by talking more,
she can't make good what was bad before.

No, It's too late now for me to lie and I can't make a second try.
I just came on back baby got to say good bye, good bye.
Don't talk now, don't talk now. Don't talk now, don't talk now.

Do something
Do something

Single: Missing You - USA - 1996

You don't give out, you don't give in
you never seem to be attracted to the sin
the sin of love, the sin of all above
I give you my advice, it can be nice
I know you can't solve the problems of the world
but you don't have to be a precious little toy
do something, do something

I'll wait a day, I'll wait a week
and I don't just wanna be dancing cheek to cheek
it's serious, this thing I need to do
win or lose, it's all up to you
I can't believe that you can let me go this far
it can't be natural to be the way you are
do something, do someting

I've got this weakness, I'm losing power
I need your sweetness right here and now yeah
deeper and deeper, hour after hour
I should be ruling but I'm not satisfied no, no

not satisfied, I'm not satisfied
when I'm alone, can't do it on the phone
won't let you go until I get just what I need
my heart is breaking oh baby, baby please
do something, do something baby baby okay
come on come on come on do something
get down on you knees and do something
oh baby, please, do something


Do what you do
Do What You Do

Album: Do what you do - 1996

When you say the things, you say you gotta mean it
And when you do the things you do, it's gotta come from the heart

Something's gone, I can't explain
The heat is missing from the plain
Can't deny it, there's a link missing from the chain
There's something wrong with you and me
When more than one adds up to three
Don't know the reason, but the fact is plain to see
It's the touch that you lose, and the words you don't say
It's our love you abuse, don't you throw it away

[Chorus:]
When you do what you do like you do to me
Don't you know that it ain't enough
When you do what you do it don't mean a thing
When you do what you do without love, without love

I'm gonna paint a picture of you
The only color I need is blue
You're out of love, baby you know it's true
Tell me why and I'll try to understand

[Chorus]

Cause I could cry when you do what you do to me
Don't you know that it ain't enough
When you do what you do it don't mean a thing
When you do what you do without love

It's the touch that you lose, and the words you don't say
It's the love you refuse, don't you throw it away

[Chorus]

When you do what you do
Don't you know that it ain't enough
When you do what you do it don't mean a thing
Then you know it's a crime that you kill me up
When you do what you do without love, without love
Don't know what you're doing, what you're doing without love



Easy as life
Easy as life

Album Elton John and Tim Rice: Aida - 1999

This is the moment when the gods expect me
To beg for help but I won't even try
I want nothing in the world but myself to protect me
But I won't lie down, roll over and die

All I have to do is to forget how much I love him
All I have to do is put my longing to one side
Tell myself that love's an ever-changing situation
Passion would have cooled and all the magic would have died

It's easy, it's easy

Until I think about him as he was when I last saw him
And how he would have been were I to be with him today
Tender in his manner and my self-consolation
All I ever wanted and I'm throwing it away

It's easy, easy as life

All I have to do is to pretend I never knew him
On those very rare occasions when he steals into my heart
Better to have lost him when the ties were barely binding
Better the contempt of the familiar cannot start

It's easy, it's easy

Until I think about him as he was when I last touched him
And how he would have been were I to be with him today
Those very rare occasions don't let up, they keep on coming
All I ever wanted and I'm throwing it away

It's easy, it's easy as life

And then I see the faces of a worn defeated people
A father and a nation who won't let a coward run
Is this how the gods reward the faithful through the ages
Forcing us to prove that all the hardest things we've done

Are easy, so easy

And though I'll think about him until the earth draws in around me
And though I choose to leave him for another kind of love
This is no denial, no betrayal, but redemption
Redeemed in my own eyes and in the pantheon above

It's easy, it's easy, it's easy as life


Earthquake & Hurricane
Earthquake & Hurricane

Album: Rough (originally from Willie Dixon)- 1978

Hurricane
Hurricane
Hurricane
Hurricane
Mighty earthquake & hurricane
Mighty earthquake & hurricane
The earth cracked open
And was breathing fire
Everybody’s running
None was ready to die
Some going crazy
Some insane
Saying save me from this hurricane
Hurricane
Hurricane
Hurricane
Hurricane
Mighty earthquake & hurricane
Mighty earthquake & hurricane
Mighty earthquake & hurricane
Mighty earthquake & hurricane
People start scrambling
On the run
They were a hit
With a atom bomb
Some lay cripple
Some lay lame
But just save me from this hurricane
Hurricane

Mighty earthquake & hurricane
Mighty earthquake & hurricane
Mighty earthquake & hurricane
Mighty earthquake & hurricane


Edith and the Kingpin
Edith and the Kingpin

Album: River: the Joni Letters - 2007

The big man arrives
Disco dancers greet him
Plainclothes cops greet him
Small town, big man, fresh lipstick glistening
Sophomore jive
From victims of typewriters
The band sounds like typewriters
The big man he’s not listening
His eyes hold Edith
His left hand holds his right
What does that hand desire
That he grips it so tight

Edith in the ring The passed-over girls are conferring
The man with the diamond ring is purring
All claws for now withdrawn
One by one they bring
His renegade stories to her
His crimes and his glories to her
In challenge they look on
Women he has taken grow old too soon
He tilts their tired faces
Gently to the spoon

Edith in his bed
A plane in the rain is humming
The wires in the walls are humming
Some song - some mysterious song
Bars in her head
Beating frantic and snow-blind
Romantic and snow-blind
She says-his crime belongs
Edith and the kingpin
Each with charm to sway
Are staring eye to eye
They dare not look away
You know they dare not look away



Falling
Falling

Album: Twenty Four Seven - 1999

Falling
Help me, I'm falling
Helplessly falling
Falling for you
And mountains
There may be mountains
The highest mountain
Won't keep me from you, oh yeah

[Chorus:]
For you I'd swim across an ocean wide
Just to be with you I'd even dare to fly
It's the miracle that happens every time I fall for you, oh yeah
And forever and forever without end
I just keep...Falling
Needing and wanting
The only one thing
That I want is you, oh yeah

[Chorus]


Falling like rain
Falling like rain

Album: Foreign Affair - 1989

Really brings me down, I don't know how
That you can say you're not my kind
Couldn't find a cloud, for miles around
Why do you change your story line

It all goes gray again, sometimes I don't know when
To come out of the storm
It feels like forty days and forty nights
I've been beating on your door
I'm falling like rain
Oh, I, I love ya, love ya, love ya
Falling like rain
Oh, I, I'm coming down around ya I will always think about you

My sentimental ways don't seem to phase you
I don't ever wanna force your hand
If you met me one time, just half the way
I could meet you where you are
Just meet me where I am
Cause every now and then you've gotta drive right in
Deeper than deep
You take a chance and then you give the wheel a spin
Anyone can see I'm falling like rain
Oh, I, I love ya, love ya, love ya
Falling like rain
Oh, I, I'm coming down around ya
I will always think about you


Finger poppin'
Finger poppin'

Album: Live! The Ike and Tina Turner Show - 1965

I used to jump when you called
And I would cry when you leave
I had to plan every move
Just to keep you pleased
No I don’t care no more
About nothing you do no

So I’m going shoppin’
Finger
Finger poppin’ on you

I got bags under my eyes
From losin’ sleep
You gave me malnutrition
‘Cause I just couldn’t eat
But I don’t care no more
About nothing you do no

Because I’m going shoppin’
Finger
Finger poppin’ on you

You never bought me no clothes
I had to steal what I wear
I wore shoes so long
Until my feet were bare
But I don’t care no more
About nothing you do no

Because I’m going shoppin’
Finger
Finger poppin’ on you

I wash my dishes in a skillet
‘Cause I didn’t have a pail
You wouldn’t stop me no mama
I had to scrub with my hand
I don’t care no more
About nothing you do

Because I’m going shoppin’
Finger
Finger poppin’ on you
Finger
Finger poppin’
Finger
Finger
Finger
Finger poppin’ on you
Said I’m goin’ shoppin’
Finger
Finger poppin’ on you


Fire down below
Fire down below

Album: Rough (originally from Bob Seger)- 1978

Here comes old Joey
And he’s looking mighty fine
Here comes old Connie
He’s steppin’ right on time
There go the street lights
Bringin in the night
Here come the women
Faces shedding from the light
All through the shadows they come and they go
We got one thing in common
We got the fire down below

Well now here comes a rich man
In his big long limousine
Here comes the poor man
Trying to make his money green
There goes the banker
The lawyer and the cops
One thing for certain
It ain’t never gonna stop
When it all gets too heavy that’s when they come and go
We got one thing in common
We got the fire down below
Keep on burning

Well now happens in Vegas
It happens in Moline
On the blue blood streets of Boston
Up in Berkeley and in Queen
It went on yesterday
And it’s going on tonight
Somewhere somebody
Ain’t treatin somebody right
And he’ll be looking out for Johnny
He’s looking mighty fine
Walking the streets for Annie
And he’ll find her every time
When the street light flicker
Bringing in the night
We’ll be slipping into darkness
Slipping out of sight
All through the midnight watch ‘em come and watch ‘em go
We got one thing in common
We got the fire down below
We got one thing in common
We got the fire down below
Keep on turnin’
One thing in common
We really fire down below
And it’s burning
Burning
Burning
Keep on burning
Burning
Burning
Burning


Fool for your love
Fool for your love

Album: Love Explosion - 1979

Loving was so hard to find
Until you came along in my life
And I thought I lose my mind
When you said that you wanted to be mine
Every since that day I’ve been hooked
Nothing could tear me away
Sleeping with you is like a dream come true
And it grows more and more everyday

I’m reaching the haze of haze
Every time I look in your eyes
And if you ask me how I feel I could say it out loud
I feel like a million inside
I never thought this could happened to me
You got me just where you want me baby
For your love I would do anything
Every night I’m a fool for your love
I’m a fool for your love
I’m a fool for your love
I’m a fool for your love
I’m just a fool for your love

Driving home from this sleepin old town
When my days of work is all through
Songs and the light make me wish I could fly
Just to get that faster to you
I waited all day by the telephone
Steering at the clock at the wall
The hours are so long when you’re free from my arms
And I just can wait to hold you
I’m a fool for your love
I’m a fool for your love
I’m a fool for your love
I’m a fool for your love

You give me chills of this spine
I’m feeling so fine when you’re on my mind
And I don’t care if it never stops
‘Cause I love you right up ‘till I drop
I’m a fool for your love
I’m a fool for your love
I’m a fool for your love
I’m just a fool for your love
I want you to know that I’m a fool for your love
I’m a fool for your love
I’m a fool for your love
I don’t care ‘cause I’m a fool for your love
I just want you to know that I’m a fool
I’m a fool
I’m a fool for your love
So I’m a fool for your love
I’m a fool
I’m a fool
I’m a fool
Fool
Fool
Fool
Fool for your love baby


Foreign Affair
Foreign Affair

Album: Foreign Affair - 1989

A one in a million chance
You know the moment that you cross over the line
A casual glance
No one has to read between the lines
In the south of France it was springtime
Special feelings come alive
There's romance in the air, so they say
Love could be a small cafe away

Love is a piece of cake
And making love is all there is to eat
It's a heart out of a limb
When you start to feel forever in a kiss

But you must remember there's no point of refuge
You only have a part in a lover's play
And you could be the one left in the dark
If someone takes a shortcut to your heart

All too soon you're touching for the last time
No one has to tell you how it is
It's just a memory two people share
File it under foreign affair


Freedom to stay
Freedom to stay

Ike and Tina Turner

I tied my bandana, took my pack from the floor
You were still sleeping,as i stood at the door
Once more i was heading to,God only knows where
That's when it hit me,i was already there

I could ramble,a thousand miles or more
Never find the light i've seen in your eyes before
You gave me the freedom to go on my own way
But you gave me much more,you gave me the freedom to stay

Why keep on running,just to wish on a star
Searching for Heaven,when i know where you are
Life is just empty,when you're walking alone
So wherever we're going girl,Lord it's good to be at home

Rushing your cheek
Like pain
Like the tears on a face

We come and we go
Like spirits
We vanish at dawn
My heart
Suspended in time
Like you
Vanish like tears in the rain

We take our loves away
Like spirits
Living so far away

Pretending to break down and cry

Whispering wind

Go ahead
Go ahead

Album: Twenty Four Seven - 1999

You see me smile
But you paint an ugly face
Everything you do
Is all about the chase
Don’t let them see you cry
Don’t let them know
You won’t lay down
And die for their show
Why don’t you go ahead tear my heart out
Why don’t you go ahead hang me out to dry
Go ahead play your game
Go ahead spread my name all over your blood red sky

They colour your starts
‘Till the light begins to fade
But never give up
‘Cause every dog has it’s day
Don’t let them see you cry
Don’t let them know
You won’t lay down
And die for their show
Why don’t you go ahead tear my heart out
Why don’t you go ahead hang me out to dry
Go ahead play your game
Go ahead spread my name all over your blood red sky
Go ahead

Why don’t you go ahead
Go ahead
Go ahead
Why don’t you go ahead hang me out to dry
I said go ahead play your game
Go ahead play your game
Go ahead play your game
Your blood red sky
Why don’t you go ahead tear my heart out Why don’t you go ahead hang me out to dry
Go ahead
I said go ahead play your game
Go ahead spread my name all over your blood red sky

Goldeneye
Goldeneye

Album: Goldeneye - 1995

See reflections on the water
More than darkness in the depths
See him surface and never a shadow
On the wind I feel his breath

Goldeneye, I found his weakness
Goldeneye, he'll do what I please
Goldeneye, no time for sweetness
But a bitter kiss will bring him to his knees

You'll never know how I watched you from the shadows as a child
You'll never know how it feels to be the one who's left behind
You'll never know the days and the nights, the tears, the tears I've cried
But now my time has come and time, time is not on your side

See him move through smoke and mirrors
Feel his presence in the crowd
Other girls they gather around him
If I had him I wouldn't let him out

Goldeneye, not lace or leather
Golden chain take him to the spot
Goldeneye, I'll show him forever
It will take forever to see what I've got

You'll never know how I watched you from the shadows as a child
You'll never know how it feels to get so close and be denied
It's a gold and honey trap I've got for you tonight
Revenge is a kiss

This time I won't miss
Now I've got you in my sight
With a goldeneye
Golden, goldeneye
With a goldeneye, goldeneye


Goodhearted woman
Goodhearted woman

Album: Soul Kiss - 1998

A long time forgotten
Dreams that just fell by the way.
The good life he promised,
It ain't what she's living today.

She's never complaining
Of the bad times and the bad things he's done.
Lord, she just talks about the good times they've had
And the good times to come.

She's a good-hearted woman
In love with a good-timing man.
She loves him in spite of his ways
That she don't understand.

Through teardrops and laughter
They'll pass through this world hand in hand
A good-timing woman
In love with a good-hearted man.

He likes the bright lights and night life
And good-timing friends.
When the party's all over
She'll welcome him back home again.
Kinky!

Lord knows she don't understand him
She does the best that she can,
This good-hearted woman
Loving a good-timing man.
Kinky, aw!

She's a good-hearted woman
In love with a good-timing man,
She loves me in spite of my wicked ways
She don't understand.

Through teardrops and laughter
We'll pass through this world hand in hand,
A good-timing woman
In love with a good-hearted man.

She's a good-timing woman
In love with a good-hearted man.
She loves me in spite of my donald duck ways
She don't understand.

(one more time!)
Through teardrops and laughter
We'll pass through this world hand in hand
Kinky!
A good-timing woman
In love with a good-hearted man.
Ah-ooh!

A good-timing woman
In love with a good-hearted man.
Ah-ooh!

One, two, three


Great Spirits
Great Spirits

Album: Brother Bear - 2003

When the earth was young
And the air was sweet
And the mountains kissed the sky
In the great beyond, with its many paths
Man and nature lived side by side

In this wilderness of danger and beauty
Lived three brothers, bonded by love
Their hearts full of joy
They ask now for guidance
Reaching out to the skies up above

Great Spirits of all who lived before
Take our hands and lead us
Fill our hearts and souls
With all you know
Show us that in your eyes
We are all the same
Brothers to each other
In this world we remain truly
Brothers all the same

Give us wisdom to pass to each other
Give us strength so we understand
That the things we do
The choices we make
Give direction to all life's plans

To look in wonder
At all we've been given
In a world that's not always as it seems
Every corner we turn
Only leads to another
A journey ends, but another begins

Great Spirits of all who lived before
Take our hands and lead us
Fill our hearts and souls
With all you know
Show us that in your eyes
We are all the same
Brothers to each other
In this world we remain truly
Brothers all the same

Brothers all the same

He's got everything he needs
He's an artist, he don't look back


He belongs to me
He belongs to me

LP: Tina turns the country on! (originally from Bob Dylan) - 1974

He's got everything he needs
He's an artist, he don't look back
He's got everything he needs
He's an artist, he don't look back
He can take the dark out of nighttime
And paint the daytime black.

You will start out standing
Proud to steal him anything he sees
You will start out standing
Proud to steal him anything he sees
But you will wind up peeking through a keyhole
on your knees.

He never stumbles
He's got no place to fall
He never stumbles
He's got no place to fall
He's nobody's child
The Law can't touch her at all.

He wears an Egyptian ring
That sparkles just before he speaks
He wears an Egyptian ring
That sparkles before he speaks
The man is a hypnotist collector
You are a walking antique.
He belongs to me.

Bow down to him on Sunday
Salute him when his birthday comes
Bow down to him on Sunday
Salute him when his birthday comes
For Halloween buy him a trumpet
And for Christmas, buy him a dog.

He's got everything he needs
He's an artist, he don't look back
He's got everything he needs
He's an artist, he don't look back

Help
Help

Single: Help - 1983 (originally from the Beatles)

When I was younger
So much younger than today
I never needed anybody's
Help in anyway
And now those days are gone
I'm not so self assured
And now I find
I've changed my mind
I've opened up the doors

[Chorus:]
Help me if you can
I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate
You being 'round
Oh, help me get my feet back on the ground
Won't you please, please help me

And now my life has changed
In oh so many ways
My independence seems to
Vanish in the haze
And every now and then
I feel so insecure
And now I just need you like
I never did before

[Chorus]


Help me make it through the night
Help me make it through the night

LP: Tina turns te country on! (originally from Kris Kristofferson)- 1974

Take the ribbon from your hair
Shake it loose and let it fall
Layin' soft against your skin
Like the shadow on the wall

Come and lay down by my side
Till the early mornin' light
All I'm takin' is your time
Help me make it through the night

I don't care what's right or wrong
I won't try to understand
Let the devil take tomorrow
Lord, tonight I need a friend

Yesterday is dead and gone
And tomorrow's out of sight
And it's sad to be alone
Help me make it through the night

Yesterday is dead and gone
And tomorrow's out of sight
And it's sad to be alone
Help me make it through the night

I don't want to be alone
Help me make it through the night

Hollywood Nights
Hollywood Nights

Video: Nice and Rough - 1982

She stood there bright as the sun on that california coast
He was a midwestern boy on his own
She looked at him with those soft eyes,
So innocent and blue
He knew right then he was too far from home he was too far from home

She took his hand and she led him along that golden beach
They watched the waves tumble over the sand
They drove for miles and miles
Up those twisting turning roads
Higher and higher and higher they climbed

And those hollywood nights
In those hollywood hills
She was looking so right
In her diamonds and frills
All those big city nights
In those high rolling hills
Above all the lights
She had all of the skills

Hed headed west cause he felt that a change
Would do him good
See some old friends, good for the soul
She had been born with a face that would her
Get her way
He saw that face and he lost all control
He had lost all control

Night after night, day after day, it went on and on
Then came that morning he woke up alone
He spent all night staring down at the lights of la
Wondering if he could ever go home

And those hollywood nights
In those hollywood hills
It was looking so right
It was giving him chills
In those big city nights
In those high rolling hills
Above all the lights
With a passion that kills

In those hollywood nights
In those hollywood hills
She was looking so right
In her diamonds and frills
All those big city nights
In those high rolling hills
Above all the lights
She had all of the skills

Honky Tonk Women

LP: Come Together (orinially from the Rolling Stones) - 1970

I met a gin soak bar room man in memphis
He tried to take me upstairs for a ride
He had to leave me right across his shoulder
‘Cause I just can’t seem to drink you off my mind
I’m a honky tonk women
Give me
Give me
Give me the honky tonk man

I laid a vip in new york city
But I had to pull myself out of some kind of a fight
A bit later the man he covered me with roses
He blew my nose and then he blew my mind
I’m a honky tonk women
Give me
Give me
Give me a honky tonk man
Give it to me now
I’m a honky tonk women
Give me
Give me
Give me the honky tonk man
I’m a honky tonk women
Give me
Give me
Give me the honky tonk man


Hot Legs
Hot Legs

Video: Wild lady of Rock (originally from Rod Stewart) - 1979

Who's that knocking on my door
It's gotta be a quarter to four
Is it you again coming 'round for more
Well you can love me tonight if you want
But in the morning make sure you're gone
I'm talkin' to you
Hot legs, wearing me out
Hot legs, you can scream and shout
Hot legs, are you still in school
I love you honey

Gotta most persuasive tongue
You promise all kinds of fun
But what you don't understand
I'm a working man
Gonna need a shot of vitamin E
By the time you're finished with me
I'm talking to you
Hot legs, you're an alley cat
Hot legs, you scratch my back
Hot legs, bring your mother too
I love you honey

Imagine how my daddy felt
in your jet black suspender belt
Seventeen years old
He's touching sixty four

You got legs right up to your neck
You're making me a physical wreck
I'm talking to you
Hot legs, in your satin shoes
Hot legs, are you still in school
Hot legs, you're making me a fool
I love you honey

Hot legs, making your mark
Hot legs, keep my pencil sharp
Hot legs, keep your hands to yourself
I love you honey
Hot legs, you're wearing me out
Hot legs, you can scream and shout
Hot legs, you're still in school
I love you honey



I am a motherless child
I am a motherless child

LP: Outta Season- 1969

Sometimes I’m exhausted and driven lord Sometimes I don’t know where to go
My mother and father don’t own me
So I’ll try to make heaven my home
Talking about a child that do love Jesus
Here is one
Here is one
You talking about a child that do love Jesus
Here is one
Talking about a child that do love Jesus
Talking about a child that do love Jesus
Here is one
Here is one
My mother and father don’t own me
I’ll try to make heaven my home


I can see for miles
I can see for miles

LP: Acid Queen (originally from Pete Townshend of the Who)- 1975

I know you’ve deceived me, now here a surprise
I know that you have, ‘cause I got magic in my eyes
I can see for miles
And miles
And miles
And miles
And miles

If you think that I don’t know about the tricks you’ve play
I never see you deliberately put things my way
Well here’s a poke at you
You’re gonna choke on it too
You’re gonna lose that smile
Because all the while
I can see for miles
And miles
I can see for miles
And miles
I can see for miles
And miles
And miles
And miles
And miles

Well here’s a poke at you
You’re gonna choke on it too
You’re gonna lose that smile
‘Cause all the while
I can see for miles
And miles
I can see for miles
And miles
I can see for miles
And miles
And miles
And miles

I can see for miles
And miles
I can see for miles
And miles
I can see for miles
And miles
And miles
And miles
And miles


I can't stand the rain
I can't stand the rain

Album: Private Dancer - 1984 (originally from Ann Peebles)

[Chorus:]
I can't stand the rain
Against my window
Bringing back sweet memories
I can't stand the rain
Against my window
Because he's not here with me

Hey window pane
Do you remember
How sweet it used to be
When we were together
Everything was so grand
Now that we're parted
There's one sound
That I just can't stand

[Chorus]

I can't stand the rain
Against my window
Bringing back sweet memories
I can't stand the rain


I can't stop lovin you
I can't stop lovin you

Album: Live! The Ike & Tina Turner Show - 1965

(I can't stop loving you)
I've made up my mind
To live in memory of the lonesome times
(I can't stop wanting you)
It's useless to say
So I'll just live my life in dreams of yesterday
(Dreams of yesterday)
Those happy hours that we once knew
Tho' long ago, they still make me blue
They say that time heals a broken heart
But time has stood still since we've been apart

(I can't stop loving you)
I've made up my mind
To live in memories of the lonesome times
(I can't stop wanting you)
It's useless to say
So I'll just live my life in dreams of yesterday
(Those happy hours)
Those happy hours
(That we once knew)
That we once knew
(Tho' long ago)
Tho' long ago
(Still make me blue)
Still ma-a-a-ake me blue
(They say that time)
They say that time
(Heals a broken heart)
Heals a broken heart
(But time has stood still)
Time has stood still
(Since we've been apart)
Since we've been apart

(I can't stop loving you)
I said I made up my mind
To live in memory of the lonesome times
(Sing a song, children)
(I can't stop wanting you)
It's useless to say
So I'll just live my life of dreams of yesterday
(Of yesterday)


I don't wanna fight
I don't wanna fight

Album: What's love got to do with it - 1993

There's a pale moon in the sky
The kind you make your wishes on
Like the light in your eyes
The one I built my dreams upon
It's not there any longer
Something happened somewhere
And we both know why
But me, I'm getting stronger
We must stop pretending
I can't live this life

I don't care who's wrong or right
I don't really wanna fight no more
(Too much talking babe)
Let's sleep on it tonight
I don't really wanna fight no more
(This is time for letting go)

I hear a whisper in the air
It simply doesn't bother me
Can't you see that I don't care
Or are you you looking right through me
Seems to me that lately
You look at me the wrong way and I start to cry
Could it be that maybe
This crazy situation is the reason why

I don't care who's wrong or right
I don't really wanna fight no more
(Too much talking babe)
Let's sleep on it tonight
I don't really wanna fight no more
(Tired of all these games)

But baby don't you know
That I don't wanna hurt no more
(It's time, I'm walking babe)
Don't care now who's to blame
I don't really wanna fight no more
(This is time for letting go)

Hanging on to the past
It only stands in our way
We had to grow for our love to last
But we just grew apart

No, I don't wanna hurt no more
But baby don't you know
No I don't wanna hurt no more
(Too much talking babe)
Don't care now who's to blame
I don't really wanna fight no more
(Tired of all these games)
I don't care who's wrong or right
I don't really wanna fight no more
(It's time, I'm walking babe)
So let's sleep on it tonight
I don't really wanna fight no more
(This is time for letting go)


I don't wanna lose you
I don't wanna lose you

Album: Foreign Affair - 1989

Women of a certain age
They learn to rely and judge all his responses
Having played the mating game
She doesn't waste time cause all that she wants is
Really honest emotions
Ones he can't help but show
Though I hardly know your name I know about love and I know

[Chorus:]
I don't wanna lose you
I don't even wanna say goodbye
I just wanna hold on
To this true love, true love

Women who have made mistakes
Are a little afraid, they don't like taking chances
She will play the waiting game
She's never impressed by those manly advances
I know, I've only just met you
Maybe, I should know better
But when you look at me that way
There's something inside that's so right

[Chorus:]
I don't wanna lose you
I don't even wanna say goodbye
I just wanna hold on
To this true love, true love
I don't wanna lose you
And I always wanna feel this way
Cause every time I'm with you I feel true love, true love

Tell me you're real
You're not pretending
Let's make a deal
'Coz my heart's depending on you


I Idolize you
I Idolize you

LP: The Soul of Ike and Tina Turner - 1960

If you want some loving
Then I’ll give to you
If you want some hugging baby
I can hug some too
All I want baby is some thought of you
Just a little bit attention
You know will see me through
‘Cause you know you’re my kind
And I want for you to be mine
I idolize you
Yes I idolize you
I would like to make love to you
When the lights are low
I would like to scream to you baby
Just to let you know
All I want baby is some thought of you
Just a little bit attention
You know will see me through
‘Cause you know you’re my kind
And I want for you to be mine

What a thrill
You know I would get
If I could conferred you baby
And make you my pet
All I want baby is some thought of you
Just a little bit attention
You know will see me through
‘Cause you know you’re my kind
And I want for you to be mine
I idolize you
Yes I idolize you
I idolize you
Baby
Yes I idolize you


I heard it through the grapevine
I heard it through the grapevine

Single: I heard it through the grapevine - Gladys Knight and the Pips - 1967

I bet you're wonderin' how I knew
'Bout your plans to make me blue
With some other guy you knew before
Between the two of us guys
You know I loved you more
It took me by surprise I must say
When I found out yesterday
Don't you know that I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Oh I heard it through the grapevine
Oh I'm just about to lose my mind

Honey, honey yeah
I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine baby

I know a man ain't supposed to cry
But these tears I can't hold inside
Losin' you would end my life you see
'Cause you mean that much to me
You could have told me yourself
That you loved some one else
Instead I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Oh, I heard it through the grapevine
And I'm just about to lose my mind

Honey, honey yeah
I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine, baby

People say believe half of what you see
Son and none of what you hear
But I can't help but be confused
If it's true please tell me dear
Do you plan to let me go
For the other guy you loved before?

Don't you know I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine, baby yeah
I heard it through the grapevine
Just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey, yeah
I heard it through the grapevine,
Not much longer would you be mine, baby yeah

Honey, honey, yeah
I heard it through the grapevine,
Not much longer would you be mine, baby yeah yeah
I heard it through the grapevine,
Not much longer would you be mine, baby yeah yeah

No more (no more) no no more
And I don't want to be hurt anymore
(no more) anymore (no more)

And it has to be someone else lovin you more

I'll be there where the heart is
I'll be there where the hearts is

Video: Chicago (originally from Kim Carnes) - 1983

It's the song that just keeps playing on the radio
And you know I haven't seen you for a while
I lie awake at night and wonder how you are
And I wish that I could see you again

Is it fate, or is it luck that brings us back
Or is it just a common point of view
Time has put a spell on you, you never seem to change
I wish that I could see you again

[Chorus:]

I'll be there where the heart is
When the dreams that we've been after all come true
You will find me here where the heart is
I'll wait for you, I'll wait for you

It's the light that just keeps shining day after day
And other loves have come and gone
And I'll be here with open arms to take you in
I wish that I could see you again

[Chorus]

And in between, and when I need to see you again
All I have to do is close my eyes
Are the pictures comin' in my friend
I'll hold you again, but until then


I'm a lady
I'm a lady

Single: Love Thing - 1992

You're so crude
but you're so nice
a boy like you could use some advice

You're so cruel
but you're so sweet
the way you're lookin'
when you're lookin' at me

Well, I'm keeping my thoughts to myself
and with that I'm thinkin'
you know it's just as well

I'm a lady
you can't go messin' around with my heart
I'm a lady
now you need love
cause your sweet talk
won't do a thing for me
I prefer my man sugar free
I'm a lady

You're standing close to me
a sure sign of immaturity
young man you shouldn't be so bold
and exercise a little self-control

Uh, remember that we just met
you need to learn to walk
before you jump ahead

I'm a lady
you can't go messin' around with my heart
I'm a lady
and you're attractive
but you don't go saying things like that
you're trying to make me forget
I'm a lady

You should have no regrets
though you lost out on me
and when you're friends ask who you met
you can tell them that she

That she
was a lady
I'm a lady

I'm keeping my thoughts to myself
and with what I'm thinkin'
yeah well maybe it's just as well

Yeah
I'm a lady
I'm a lady

No your sweet talk won't do a thing for me
I prefer my man sugar free
I'm a lady
oh, yeah


I'm movin' on
I'm movin'on

LP: Tina turns the country on! (originally from Hank Snow) - 1974

That big eight-wheeler rollin' down the track
Means your true-lovin' mamma ain't comin' back
'Cause I'm movin' on, I'll soon be gone
You were flyin' too high, for my little old sky
So I'm movin' on

That big loud whistle as it blew and blew
Said hello Alabama, I'm comin' through
Cause I'm movin' on, oh hear my song
You had the laugh on me, and I've set you free
And I'm movin' on

Mister Engineer, take that throttle in hand
This rattler's the fastest in the southern land
Cause I'm movin' on, keep rollin' on
You gonna ease my mind, put me there on time
Cause I'm movin' on

I got the move on
I got to roll on
I got the move on
I got to roll on
You're playing too high for my little sky
That's why I'm movin'on

I've told you baby, from time to time
But you just wouldn't listen or pay me no mind
That's why I'm movin' on, I'm rollin' on
You've broken your vow, and it's all over now
And I'm movin' on

But someday baby when you've had your play
You're gonna want your mamma but your mamma gonna say
You better movin' on, you stayed away too long
I'm through with you, too bad you're blue
I'm movin' on

I got the move on
I got to roll on
I got the move on
I got to roll on
You're playing too high for my little sky
That's why I'm movin'on
I got the roll on
I got the groove on


I might have been queen
I might have been queen

Album: Private Dancer - 1984

I'm a new pair of eyes
Every time I am born
An original mind
Because I just died
I'm scanning the horizon
For someone recognizing
That I might of been queen
For every sun that sets
There is a new one dawning
For every empire crushed
There is a brand new nation
Let the waters rise
I have ridden each tide
From the gates of the city
Where the first born died

[Chorus:]
And I might have been queen
I remember the girl in the fields with no name
She had a love
Oh, but the rivers won't stop for me
No, the rivers won't stop for me

I'm a new pair of eyes
An original mind
With my senses of old
And the heart of a giant
And I'm searching through the wreckage
For some great recollection
That I might have been queen
For every sage that falls
There is an ancient child

[Chorus]

I look up to the stars
With my perfect memory
I look through it all
And my future's no shock to me
I look down but I see no tragedy
I look up to my past
A spirit running free
I look down, I look down and I'm there, in history
Oh, I'm a soul survivor


In the midnight hour
In the Midnight Hour

Album: Tina Live in Europe - 1988

I'm gonna wait till the midnight hour
that's when my love comes tumbling down
I'm gonna wait till the midnight hour
when there is no one else around
I'm gonna take and I'm gonna hold
do all the things I've told
in the midnight hour, in the midnight hour

I'm gonna wait till the stars come out
to see the twinkle in your eyes
I'm gonna wait till the midnight hour
that's when my love begins to shine
you're the only one I know
that really loves me so
in the midnight hour, in the midnight hour


I see home
I see home

Album: Love Explosion - 1979

First night by your side I knew I found a friend
I haven’t have this feeling inside since I can remember when
I’ve waited a long time to touch you for the first time
And made it my last time
I feel safe and warm in your arms
‘Cause when I look in your eyes I see home
I feel safe and warm
‘Cause I see home
I see home

Sometimes it doesn’t work out and the friend hand’s all the fool
Best friend you ever had couldn’t be your lover too
But I dreamed of the woman you could make me but I look for you
And you where nowhere
I was blinded by the site
‘Cause when I look in your eyes I see home
I feel safe and warm in your arms
‘Cause when I look in your eyes I see home
I’m safe in your arms
‘Cause I see home
I see home

The kids can be stolen but no not love
It’s a gift that’s givin to me
And when the talent of me was afraid to reach out
The love in you
Made me
It made me see
I feel safe and warm in your arms
‘Cause when I look in your eyes I see home
I’m safe in your arms
‘Cause I see home
I see home

Now I feel safe and warm in your arms
‘Cause when I look in your eyes I see home
Now I feel safe and warm in your arms
‘Cause when I look in your eyes I see home
Now I feel safe and warm in your arms
‘Cause when I look in your eyes I see home
Now I feel safe and warm in your arms
When I look in your eyes I see home
And now I feel
I feel
I feel safe and warm in your arms
‘Cause when I look in your eyes
When I look in your eyes
And I keep looking every where
I’ve been feeling for you arms
I’ve been searching for you love
‘Cause when I look in your eyes I see home
Safe and warm in your arms
When I look in your eyes I see home


I will be there
I will be there

Album: Twenty Four Seven - 1999

This is the life you saved laid out before you
Everything that I think I have been and what I am now
Nothing can change the way I feel about you
Better we go on our separate ways
Nothing is left but the endless days
Nothing to cry but your name

[Chorus:]
Don't you look back, don't say a word
I will be lonely for you, I will be standing for you
Don't you despair I will be there for you (I will be there)

Maybe this time next year we'll be together
You can wipe away all of the tears, bring truth to the lies
There was a silent dream, we made a promise
We'd be there for each other forever
Aboard like a ship on an ocean's roar
Beating a path to your open door
Nothing will keep me away

[Chorus]


If this is our last time
If this is our last time

Album: The Country of Tina Turner - 1973

Even though the night is early there's a fire that whispers hurry
Darling please turn off the lights and lock the door
Come lay down here beside me tell me that I'm soft and pretty
And love me like you never have before
If this is our last time make it last me for a lifetime
Don't hold back the love you feel inside why should passion be ashamed
If this is our last time make it last me for a lifetime
Leave me with enough of sunshine to carry me through the rain

In the morning you'll be leaving but tonight there'll be no grieving
I'll have lots of time to cry when you're gone
Let's not waste one precious moment take all of me I'm still your woman
And love me up until the break of dawn
If this is our last time...


If you love me (let me know)
If you love me let me know

LP: Tina Turns the country on! (originally from Olivia Newton-John) - 1975

You came when I was happy in your sunshine
I grew to love you more each passing day
Before too long I'd filled my world around you
Yeah and I prayed you loved enough of me to stay

If you love me let me know
If you don't let me go
I can't take another minute of the day without you near
If you love me let it be
If you don't set me free
Take the chains away that keep me loving you

The arms that open wide to hold me closer
The hands that run their fingers through my hair
The smile that says hello it's good to see you
Any time I turn around and find you there

It's this and so much more that makes me love you
What else can I do to make you see
You know you'll have whatever's mine to give you
Yeah but a love affair for one it can never be

If you love me let me know
If you don't let me go
I can't take another minute of the day without you near
If you love me let it be
If you don't set me free
Take the chains away that keep me loving you

Take the chains away that keep me loving you


I'll be thunder
I'll be thunder

Album: Break every rule - 1986

There’ll be a storm one night
Then i’ll fly to you for shelter
Soaked in welcome rain
Falling to forbidden arms
Too breathless
Too helpless
Too restless to explain
Needing you

There’ll be a storm one night
But you will find my place of hiding
We’ll watch the lights like children
Leave the fortress hand in hand
I’ll be thunder
You’ll be lightning
I’ll be thunder
You’ll be lightning
And we’ll collide

On dry land

There’ll be a storm one night
And I will find no other rescue
Lost and far from home
Crying for some guiding light
Too breathless
Too helpless
Too hungry to refrain
From needing you

There’ll be a storm one night
The wind will drive me to your castle
And you’ll ignite the fire
Just as if everything were planned
I’ll be thunder
You’ll be lightning
I’ll be thunder
You’ll be lightning
And we’ll collide

On dry land

I’ll be thunder You’ll be lightning
I’ll be thunder
You’ll be lightning
And we’ll collide

On dry land

No betrayal
No denial
No need to explain
We’ll collide


In your wildest dreams
In your wildest dreams

Album: Wildest Dreams (with Barry White) - 1996

The sun goes down
And the moon comes up
My heart is pumping for you
And a mad thing starts

Never in your wildest dreams
Did you ever get this feeling
Never in your wildest dreams
Never in your wildest dreams
Could it ever be this easy
Never in your wildest dreams

The night is hot outside your window
I hear people walking, people talking
I smell your skin, I feel you breathing
Don't let me go, not yet, not yet, not yet, not yet

Never in your wildest dreams
Did you ever get this feeling
Never in your wildest dreams (No No)
Never in your wildest dreams
Did it ever get this easy
Never in your wildest dreams

The world is slowly turning
As it turns I see your face, touch your eyes, your lips
We've arrived at the place where they open hearts
And fill them up with love, filled with love, filled with love
This heart is pumping for you
As a mad thing starts

Never in your wildest dreams
Did you ever get this feeling
Never in your wildest dreams
Never in your wildest dreams
Did it ever feel this easy
Never in your wildest dreams
As a mad thing starts (Ooh sacrifice)
Oh baby, no baby (Ooh sacrifice)
Never in my wildest dreams (Ooh sacrifice)

Album: Come Together - 1970

And attracted into lotion It ain’t right lovin’ to be lovin’

But all I know

Just ain’t right hugt to be huggin’
But I can help it how I feel
All I know

It just ain’t real

It's only love
It's only love

Single: It's only love (with Bryan Adams) - 1985

When the feeling is ended
There ain't no use pretending
Don't you worry, it's only love
When your world has been shattered
Ain't nothing else matters
It ain't over, it's only love
And that's all

When your heart has been broken
Hard words have been spoken
It ain't easy, but it's only love
And if your life ain't worth living
And you're ready to give in
Just remember that it's only love
Yeah, that's all

You can live without the aggravation
You gotta wanna win, you gotta wanna win
You keep looking back in desperation
Over and over and over again


It takes two
It takes two

Single: It takes two (with Rod Stewart) - 1990

One can have a dream baby
two can make a dream so real
on can talk about living love
two can see how it really feels
one can wish upon a star
two can make a wish come true
one can stand alone in the dark
two can make the light shine through

It takes two baby
it takes two baby
just me and you
you know it takes two

One can have a broken heart
living in misery
two can really ease the pain
that's a perfect remedy
one can be alone in a bar
like an island here all alone
two can make just any place
seem just like being at home

It takes two baby
it takes two baby
just me and you
you know it takes two

One can go out to the movies
looking for a special treat
two can make that scene in the movies
something really kind of neat
one can take a walk in the moonlight
thinking that it's really nice
but two lovers walking hand in hand
is like adding just a pinch of spice


I've been loving you too long
I've been loving you too long

Album: Outta Season (originally from Otis Redding) - 1969

But my love for you it's growing stronger
You see you've become a habit to me
I've been loving you that much too long
Please don't make me stop now
I don't wanna stop now

I've been loving you a little too long
I don't wanna stop now
Oh I don't wanna
Please don't make me stop now
Oh don't make me stop now
I'm down on my beggin knees
Don't make me stop now
Oh don't make me stop now
Baby, baby I love you
Honey, honey child don't you know that I love you
I Said I love you with all my heart and soul
Don't make me stop, don't make me stop now

Oh don't make me, don't make me stop now
Oh no

You, you , you can make me do anything you want me to do
And I'll, I'll even say anything you want me to say
Buy you anything you want me to buy you
If you, if you just stay and make love to me
If ya, if ya just make me say oh, oh baby
Oh, oh baby
Oh baby

Sock it to me baby baby

I want you near me
I want you near me

Album: Simply the Best - 1991

Should you stay, should you go
you're begging to see
I go hot, I go could
it's just the devil in me
you've got to understand I am
in love with a beautiful man
so if your feeling insecure
you've really no cause to be

I want you near me, don't you run away
I just got used to having you around
I want you near me, come on here and stay
don't let me down

Your so good with your hands
to help me with a hook or a zip
indispensable that's what you are
for the occasional kiss
I'm only playing games with you
I can't be nice without being crule
I know it's not fair, but I make the rules

I want you near me, don't you run away
I just got used to having you around
I want you near me, come on here and stay
don't let me down

All I want, I've decided
is your attention undivided

I want you near me, don't turn away
I want you near me, won't you stay


I wrote a letter
I wrote a letter

Single: Let's Stay Together (originally from Inga Rumpf) - 1983

I wrote a letter to my love today
I wrote it so hard on what I gotta say
I’m down and out to tell you the truth
A man can make the poor girl sing the blues
You know what I couldn’t be with you
When there’s a chance please give me a clue
Until I drown in a sea of booze
A man can make the woman sing the blues
Took my pride and I threw it away
You gotta release me from this suffering
You’ll find me everywhere running around
Until you showed up to find me in the gutter

I wrote a letter to my love today
I wrote it so hard on what I gotta say
All my life is ending up the blues
A man can make the poor girl sing the blues
You can make the white girl sing the blues

I took my pride and I threw it away
You gotta release me from this suffering
You’ll find me everywhere running around
Until you showed up to find me in the gutter
I wrote a letter to my love today
I wrote it so hard on what I gotta say
I’m down and out to tell you the truth
All my life is ending up blues
When there’s a chance please give me a clue
‘Cause you know what I couldn’t be with you
Until I drown in a sea of booze
A man can make the woman sing the blues
A man can make the white girl sing the blues
You got me singing the blues
You got me singing the blues



Johnny and Mary
Johnny and Mary

Album: Summer Lovers (originally from Robert Palmer) - 1982

Jonny's always running around
trying to find certainty
he needs all the world to confirm
that he ain't lonely
Mary counts the walls
knows he tires easily

Jonny thinks the world would be right
if it could find truth for him
Mary says he changes his mind
more than a woman
but she made her bet
even though the chance was slim

Jonny says he's willing to learn it
when he decides he's a fool
Jonny says he'll live anywhere
when he has time to
Mary combs her hair
says she should be used to it

Mary always hedges her bets
she never knows what to think
she says that he still acts like he's
being discovered
scared that he'll get caught
without a second thought

Jonny think he's wasting his prayers
trying to make sense to her
Mary says he's lcking a real
sense of proportion
so she combs her hair
knows he tires easily

Jonny always running around
trying to find certainty
he needs all the world to confirm
that he ain't lonely
Mary counts the walls
says she should be used to it


Just a little lovin'
Just a littlelLovin'

Album: Love Explosion - 1979

Just a little lovin’
Early in the morning
Beats a cup of coffee for starting off the day
Just a little lovin’
When the world is yawning
Makes you wake up feeling good things are coming your way
This whole world wouldn’t be half that bad
Wouldn’t be half that sad
If each and everybody in it had
Just a little lovin’
Early in the morning
A little extra something to kinda see you through
Nothing turns the day on
Really get the dawning
Like a little bit of lovin’ from lovin’ someone like you

This whole world wouldn’t be half that bad
Wouldn’t be half that sad
If each and everybody in it had
Just a little lovin’
Early in the morning
Just a little lovin’
Early in the morning
Just a little bit of lovin’
Early in the morning
Just a little bit of lovin’
Just a little bit of lovin’



Keep your hands of my baby
Keep your hands off my baby

Single: Private Dancer - 1984

I've seen the way that you look at him,
When you think I'm not around,
And I've seen you try to catch his eyes,
And you think you're gainin' ground.
You know last night he told me,
Everything that you said,
You asked him if he gets lonely,
Well then get this through your head

Keep your hands off my baby,
Keep your hands off my baby,
Don't you know you better give it up,
Give it up, give it up, give it up, give it up,
Don't you know you better stop, better stop,
Leave my baby alone.

I've seen the way that you brushed back your hair,
I've heard your baby-talk,
I know just what you're thinkin' there,
Ooo, I'm watchin' what you want.
You know it took a lot of patience,
To win my baby's love,
Now you're tryin' my patience,
If you push, I'm gonna shove.

Keep your hands off my baby,
Keep your hands off my baby,
Don't you know you better give it up,
Give it up, give it up, give it up, give it up,
Don't you know you better stop, better stop,
Leave my baby alone (yeah).

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah....

Album: The Edge - Ike and Tina Turner (originally from Bill Withers) - 1980

Sometimes in our lives we all have pain
We all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know that there's always tomorrow

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

Please swallow your pride
If I have things you need to borrow
For no one can fill those of your needs
That you don't let show

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

If there is a load you have to bear
That you can't carry
I'm right up the road
I'll share your load
If you just call me

So just call on me brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'd understand
We all need somebody to lean on

Lean on me when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
Till I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

Hey baby, won't you take a chance?
If you wanna, you can have a dance
Let's dance, let's dance
Do the twist and shout, mashed potato too
Any old dance that you wanna do
Let's dance, let's dance

Hey baby, now you're all alone
Hey baby, let me walk you home
Let's dance, let's dance
Do the twist and shout, mashed potato too
Any old dance that you wanna do
Let's dance, let's dance

Let's dance
Put on your red shoes and dance the blues
Let's dance
Dance to the song they're playing on the radio
Let's sway
While color lights up your face
Let's sway
Sway through the crowd to an empty space

If you say run, I'll run with you
If you say hide, we'll hide
Watch my love for you
It would break my heart in two
If you should fall into my arms
And tremble like a flower

Let's dance
Let's dance
Let's dance, let's dance
Let's dance, let's dance

Let's spend the night together now

I feel so strong that I can't disguise (oh my)
Let's spend the night together

Letter from Tina
Letter from Tina

LP: The Soul of Ike and Tina Turner - 1960

Worrying me and soon I’ll be gone
Worrying me and you’ll be left alone
I’m almost crazy
Dear my man
I know you probable think silly of me
For what I’m about to say
But this
This is been on my mind for quite some time
First
First I want you to help me to understand
Understand the things you do that hurt me so
There should be no doubt what I’m not of understand
Because
Because honey I love you
And my love for you hides all faults
You see
See honey at times I get the feeling that you don’t care
I believe I’m just another woman in your life
Then again I feel that I’m
That I’m all in this world that matters to you
Is it in my mind
If you would
If you would just tell me I would understand
Because I am yours
You control every moment
I worry so much
I make myself sick
Wonder why we can’t get alone
I tried so hard in many
Many ways
Second
The second is trust
I trust you highly in anything you say or do
You know you can lie to me
And really
Really I don’t want you to know the truth
Nobody can make me believe different
All I ask is that
Is that understanding and sometimes
Sometimes if you would tell me that you love me
And that
And that you don’t mind
Because I am yours
Heart by soul I’m yours
And I’m with you
For you
In anything you do or say
Yours lifetime
Tina



Let's pretend we're married
Let's pretend we're married

Single: I can't stand the rain (originally from Prince) - 1984

Excuse me but I need a love like yours
to help me forget the guy that just walked out that door
funny but it seems that ypu're alone like me
if you are then let's go see, see, see

Little darlin' if you're free for a couple of hours
And ain't busy for the next seven years
let's pretend we're married and go all night
there ain't nothin' wrong if it feels all right
I won't stop until the morning light
let's pretend we're married and go all night, tonight

Ooh-we-coo-coo-sha-sha yeah
everybody sing together
ooh-we-coo-coo-sha-sha- yeah

Excuse me but I need your tender skin
don't you want to be my fantasy
I don't care if you don't ever come
and if you go (so what)
c'mon baby, let's ball

And if you're free for a couple of hours
and ain't busy for the next seven years
let's pretend we're married and go all night
there ain't nothin' wrong if it feels all right
I won't stop until the morning light
let's pretend we're married and go all night, tonight

Ooh-we-coo-coo-sha-sha yeah
everybody sing together
ooh-we-coo-coo-sha-sha- yeah
ooh-we-coo-coo-sha-sha yeah
everybody singing
ooh-we-coo-coo-sha-sha- yeah

What you heard about me is true
I change the rules and do what I wanna do
I'm in love with life, it's the only way
'cause you and I know we gotta go some day
if you think I'm wild, you're probably right
'cause I'm gonna rock'n roll everyday and evey night


Let's stay together
Let's stay together

Single: Let's stay together (originally from Al Green) - 1983

Let me say that since
Since we've been together
Loving you forever
Is all I need
Let me be the one you come running to
I'll never be untrue
Oh baby

[Chorus:]
Let's, let's stay together
Loving you whether, whether
Times are good or bad
Happy or sad

I'm, I'm so in love with you
Whatever you want to do
Is all right with me
Let me be the one you come running to
I'll never be untrue
Oh baby

[Chorus]

Why, oh tell me, why do people break up
And turn around and make up
I just came to see
You'd never do that to me, would ya baby
Being around you is all I see
Oh baby

[Chorus]


Long long time
Long long time

LP: Tina turns the country on! (originally from Linda Ronstadt) - 1970

Love will abide, take things in stride
Sounds like good advice, but there's no one at my side
But time washes clean, love's wounds unseen
That's what somebody told me, but I don't know what it means.
Cause I've done everything I know to try and make you mine
And I think I'm gonna love you for a long long time

Caught in my fears
Blinking back the tears
I can't say it was you that hurt me when you never let me near
And I never drew one response from you
No no not once
All the while you fell all over girls you never knew
Cause I've done everything I know to try and make you mine
And I know I am gonna love you for a long long time

Wait for the day
For they tell me you'll go away
Knowing that you warned me of the price I'd have to pay
Life's full of flaws
Sometimes I wonder Who knows the cause?
Living in the memory of a love that never was
Cause I've done everything I know cause I want to make you mine
And I think I'm gonna love you for a long long time
Cause I've done everything I know to try and make you mine
And I think I'm gonna love you for a long long time.


Look me in the heart
Look me in the heart

Album: Foreign Affair - 1989

Last night, we tried to touch but we never got close
Last night, we tried to talk, the words got caught in our throats
When we finally fell asleep
We couldn't have been farther apart

[Chorus:]
Look me in the heart
If you think that love is blind
Baby, look me in the heart
And you'll see that I'm so crazy about you baby
And it's not in my mind
Can't you look me in the heart
Look me in the heart

You try, to say, that I'm hiding from you
You act, like a spy, always looking for clues
You've read about my past
But why don't we try to make a new start

[Chorus]

Remember how good we used to be together
Remember baby, to be tender baby
Remember the love we said would last forever
I know we can make it like that again

Missing you
Missing you

Album: Wildest Dreams (originally from John Waite) - 1996

Every time I think of you
I always catch my breath
And I'm still standing here
And you're miles away
And I'm wondering why you left
And there's a storm that's raging
Through my frozen heart tonight
I hear your name in certain circles
And it always makes me smile
I spend my time thinking about you
And it's almost driving me wild
And there's a heart that's breaking
Down this long distance line tonight

[Chorus:]
I ain't missing you at all (Missing you)
Since you've been gone away (Missing you)
I ain't missing you (Missing you)
No matter what I might say (Missing you)

There's a message in the wire
And I'm sending you the signal tonight
You don't know how desperate I've become
And it looks like I'm losing this fight
In your world I have no meaning
Though I'm trying hard to understand
And it's my heart that's breaking
Down this long distance line tonight

[Chorus]

And there's a message that I'm sending out
Via telegraph to your soul
And if I can't bridge this distance
Stop this heartbreak overload

[Chorus]

Every time I think of you
I always catch my breath

Not enough romance
Not enough romance

Album: Foreign Affair - 1989

Should’ve never made eye contact
Should’ve been a heart of stone
When you stopped me to say hello

Would’ve been twice as easy to just say no
‘Cause I don’t wanna lose at love again
But as a couple we were quite handsome
And the moon was out that night
So we let our hearts go dancing if the thing is missing in my life
There’s not enough romance in this world
No
Not enough romance in this world
There’s too many people thinking only of themselves
You gotta give love for it’s return

Wanna sing about new lovers
Stand up against the odds
Nothing can chagce
A thing that strong
And myself I know my emotions
I got my love to share
And when you need something so tender What you’re looking for is so rare
There’s not enough romance in this world
No
There’s not enough romance in this world
You gotta believe in what your heart tells you is right
And I’m here to say that I believe in love
We take a lot of chances
Playing foolish games
But that’s the only price that you gotta pay
I gotta keep believing hungry hearts run free
Everybody needs a good loving
It’s anything you want it to be

There’s too many people thinking only for themselves
Gotta give love for it’s return
Not enough romance in this world
No
Not enough romance in this world
Gotta believe in what your heart tells you is right
And I’m here to say that I believe in love
Not enough romance in this world
No
Not enough romance in this world


Nutbush city limits
Nutbush city limits

Single: Nutbush City Limits - Ike and Tina Turner - 1973

A church house gin house
A school house outhouse
On highway number nineteen
The people keep the city clean

They call it Nutbush, oh Nutbush
They call it Nutbush city limits

Twenty-five for speed limit
Motorcycle not allowed in it
You go to store on Friday

You go to church on Sunday

They call it Nutbush, oh Nutbush
They call it Nutbush city limits

You go to the fields on weekdays
And have a picnic on Labor Day
You go to town on Saturday
And go to church every Sunday

They call it Nutbush, oh Nutbush
They call it Nutbush city limits

No whiskey for sale
If you get drunk no bail
Salt pork and molasses
Is all you get in jail

They call it Nutbush, oh Nutbush
They call it Nutbush city limits

A little old town in Tennessee
A quiet little old community
A one-horse town
You have to watch what you're putting down
In old Nutbush, oh Nutbush



One of the living
One of the living

Single: One of the living - 1985

In the desert sun
every step that you take could be the final one
in the burning heat
hanging on the edge of destruction
you can't stop the pain of your children
crying out in your head
they always said that the living
would envy the dead

So now you're gonna shoot bullets of fire
don't wanna fight but sometimes you've got to
you're some soul survivor
there's just one thing you've got to know
you've got ten more thousand miles to go

Because you're one of the living
and if we can't stick together
one of the living
who's gonna make it tonight

Walk tall, cool, collected and savage
walk tall, bruised, sensual, ravaged
it's every man for himself, every woman, every child
a need breed, ferocious and wild

And all they want to do is shoot bullets of fire
they wanna fight and sometimes you've got to
you're some soul survivor
there's just one thing you got to know
you've got ten more thousand years to go
because you're one of the living
and if we can't stick together
one of the living
who's gonna make it tonight


On silent wings
On silent wings

Album: Wildest Dreams - with Sting - 1996

There was a time when I would have followed you
To the end of the earth
I was willing to share it all with you
The love, the hurt
I've seen you when your dreams were falling in the dust
But I never stopped believing in you
I always thought our love was strong enough
One you could hold on to

[Chorus:]
You never see it coming
You just let it fly
On silent wings, silent wings
You can't hide what you you feel inside
And the fire has left your eyes
On silent wings

I see us in our dreams and we're dancing
I can almost hear the song
But the prayers, they go unanswered
But we both know, we're just hanging on
I feel ashamed, but I'll never know the reason why
The rug was pulled so gently from under my feet
I only know that something good has died
Between you and me, oh it's just a memory

[Chorus]

You never see it coming
You just go separate ways
On silent wings, silent wings
There's no more promises to break
Or our love has slipped away
On silent wings
You never see it coming
But you know it has to end
On silent wings, silent wings
I will never be the same again
I feel the whisper of the wind
On silent wings


On the radio
On the Radio

Album: Love Explosion - 1979

Well it don’t really matter if there’s no way to go
‘Cause there’s always a party right on your radio
Well it don’t really matter if there’s nowhere to go
‘Cause there’s always a party right on your radio
Listen to the music
On your radio

Well it don’t really matter if you ain’t got it there
‘Cause it don’t cost you nothing to get down anytime
Well it don’t really matter if there’s nowhere to go
‘Cause there’s always a party on your own radio
Listen to the music
On your radio
Listen to the music
On your radio

No
So now listen to the music
On your radio
Listen to the music
On your radio

Well it don’t really matter if there’s no way to go
‘Cause there’s always a party right on your radio
Well it don’t really matter if there’s no way to go
‘Cause there’s always a party on your own radio


Open Arms
Open Arms

Single: Open Arms - 2004

Ask me no questions
I'll tell you no lies
Come to me when you're down
I'll give you friendly advice
I'll be your avenue, your trusting ear
Release your deepest secrets
I'll be sincere

It's an age old situation
There's nothing to fear
Whatever life throws at you
Your friend is here
Right by your side

When love leaves you cold
Lies have been told
I will be there with my open arms
Hurting inside
Please don't hide the pain
I will be there with my open arms

I know what you're saying
I been there myself
Promises withstand
They left me for someone else
Then the tables turn
A lesson I had to learn
I can't put my fingers cuz
Girls, my fingers have been burned

It's an age old situation
The message is clear
Whatever life throws at you
Your friend is here
Right by your side


Overnight Sensation
Overnight Sensation

Album: Break every rule - 1986

Well, I guess I been a long time
Working in the back line
Trying to make a song fit
You know it never was mine
Two dollar high-heel and a honky tonk dress
In the rhythm and soul revues
I had a dream, I guess
Yes, yes

And I had to beat the stage fright
I had to cry all night
Tryin' to make a song fit
You know it never was right
I said, 'Girl, get up and get out of this mess
You're gonna be and overnight sensation
Be an overnight success'

And all through the badlands
Rockin' on the bandstands
It's so hard in the bar bands
When there's no one there who understands
And Lady Luck'll pass you by
And she'll never say, 'Yes
You're gonna be an overnight sensation
Gonna be an overnight success'

Well, I used to be a sweet little rock 'n' roll singer
Chasing after fortune and fame
What's your story? What's your payola?
Me, I'm in the music game

Well, I guess I've been a long time
Workin' in the backline
Tryin' to make a song fit
You know it never was mine
What can I tell you
I made a break I guess
Now I'm an overnight sensation
I'm an over overnight
I'm an over overnight success



Paradise is here
Paradise is here

Album: Break every rule (originally from Paul Brady) - 1986

You say you wanna live some, move out into the fast lane
You say you need excitement to make you come alive
Some place a million miles from the shadows that surround you
I look for your attention, you're lost out in the future
Where lovers ask no questions and shadows never fall
Some pilgrim bound for paradise, no compromise

Paradise is here, it's time to stop your crying
The future is this moment and not some place out there
Tonight I need your love, don't talk about tomorrow

Right now, I need your loving
Right now, give it to me
Right now, I want your loving
Rigt now, now now now now

You talk about your new plans to move on up the stairway
You dream about the high life that's waiting for you there
A world of fame and fortune just around the corner

But I don't need no high life to make me feel a woman
I don't need to reach for no castles in the sky
Just put your arms around me, devour me

Paradise is here, it's time to stop your crying
The future is this moment and not some place out there
Tonight I need your love, don't talk about tomorrow

Right now, I need your loving
Right now, give it to me
Right now, I want your loving
Rigt now

Don't say tomorrow
To give me sorrow


Poor Fool
Poor Fool

Single: Poor Fool - 1961

I want to tell all of you
That ain’t doin’ nothin’ for me
And can’t do nothing for me
You should tend to your business
And leave mine alone
Because as far as this man is concerned
I wanna tell you he’s mine
Now let me tell you he’s mine
He’s mine

I’m not ashamed
‘Cause he’s my man
And he’s mine
Now listen

This man of mine he’s my every thought
I’d give him pressure if it could be bought
I’m not ashamed of nothing I do
I’d guide a missile if he told me to
‘Cause he’s mine
I know he’s mine
The man is mine
And listen

If I make my bed hard
That’s where I’m gonna sleep
You people talking means nothing to me
I work my fingers right down to the bone
Doin’ the things to please him right or wrong
‘Cause he’s mine
I know he’s mine
the man is mine
He’s mine
And let me tell you he’s mine
He’s mine

I’m not ashamed
‘Cause he’s my man
And he’s mine
And listen
I’m with my man in every way
Don’t keep him hopin’ each and every day
I’ll never hurt him or make him frown
I’m with my man if he’s up or down
‘Cause he’s mine
I know he’s mine
The man is mine
He’s mine
And let me tell you he’s mine


Private Dancer
Private Dancer

Album: Private Dancer - 1984

All the men come in these places
And the men are all the same
You don't look at their faces
And you don't ask their names
You don't think of them as human
You don't think of them at all
You keep your mind on the money
Keeping your eyes on the wall

[Chorus:]
I'm your private dancer
A dancer for money
I'll do what you want me to do
I'm your private dancer
A dancer money
Any old music will do

I wanna make a million dollars
I wanna live out by the sea
Have a husband and some children
Yeah, I guess I want a family
All the men come in these places
And the men are all the same
You don't look at their faces
And you don't ask their names

[Chorus 2x]

Deutschmarks or dollars
American Express will nicely...Thank You!
Let me loosen up your collar
Tell me do you wanna see me do the shimmy again

[Chorus]


Proud Mary
Proud Mary

Album: Workin' Together - Ike and Tina Turner (originally from John Fogerty) - 1971

Y' know, every now and then
I think you might like to hear something from us
Nice and easy
But there's just one thing
You see we never ever do nothing
Nice and easy
We always do it nice and rough
So we're gonna take the beginning of this song
And do it easy
Then we're gonna do the finish rough
This is the way we do "Proud Mary"

And we're rolling, rolling, rolling on the river
Listen to the story
I left a good job in the city
Working for the man every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleeping
Worrying 'bout the way things might have been
Big wheel keep on turning
Proud Mary keep on burning
And we're rolling, rolling
Rolling on the river

Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis
Pumped a lot of 'tane down in New Orleans
But I never saw the good side of the city
Till I hitched a ride on a riverboat queen
Big wheel keep on turning
Proud Mary keep on burning
And we're rolling, rolling
Rolling on the river

If you come down to the river
I bet you gonna find some people who live
You don't have to worry if you got no money
People on the river are happy to give

When you were a young boy, did you have a puppy?

And it gets bigger baby and heaven knows
And it gets sweeter baby as it goes

Rock and roll widow
Rock and roll widow

Single: Help - 1984

I’m sitting at home and the phone doesn’t even ring
I’m all alone again
Not a sound in the house save the radio
Fm dj filling up the emptiness
Baby’s on the road again
Six weeks nationwide opening the show
And I’m making it on my own
Like a rock and roll widow
Get my news from the rolling stone Wake by the telephone
Wonders if he’s alone
Or is my man on a permanent loan
To rock and roll
Rock and roll

After a concert watching him play for free
I fall in love again
He says his music is everything
Helpless caught by the melody
When he begins to sing
Go on tell me he’s like all the rest
Say I’m making it on my own
Like a rock and roll widow
Get my news from the rolling stone
Wake by the telephone
Wonders if he’s alone
Or is my man on a permanent loan
To rock and roll
Rock and roll

Watching him run
I’ve got the feeling that he’s already
Lost in the life
So I’m making it on my own
Like a rock and roll widow
Get my news from the rolling stone
Wake by the telephone
Wonders if he’s alone
Or is my man on a permanent loan
To rock and roll
To rock and roll
Rock and Roll

I want you to rock me like my back ain't got no bones

Roll me daddy like you roll your flour dough
I said I want you to roll me daddy like you roll your flour dough
I want you to roll me till I want no more

Shake a tail feather
Shake a tail feather

Single: So Fine - Ike and Tina Turner (originally from The Five Du-Tones) - 1968

Well, I heard about the girl
You've been dancing with
All over the neighborhood
Tell me why didn't you ask me baby?
Or didn't you think I could?

Well, I know that your partner will never step aside
I've seen you do the Jerk all night
Why didn't you ask me baby?
I would have shown you how to do it right
Do it right, do it right, do it right
Do it right, do it right, do it right, do it right

Ahh...Twist it
Shake it, shake it, shake it baby
Here we go loop de loop
Shake it up baby
Here we go loop de la
Bend over and let me see you shake a tail feather
Bend over and let me see you shake a tail feather
Bend over and let me see you shake a tail feather
Bend over and let me see you shake a tail feather
Well, you bend over and let me see you shake a tail feather
Well, you bend over and let me see you shake a tail feather
All right

[Repeat]


Show some respect
Show some respect

Album: Private Dancer - 1984

I made a resolution
And I plan to keep my word
But I need you to make it work
You've gotta read the message
Understand what's on my mind
Cause not to see would be a crime
And we could lose it anytime

[Chorus:]
We've got to show some respect
We've got to learn to protect
Don't take it for granted I know
That if you want to stay close
We've got to show some respect

But I believe in working
Then I believe in a little help
Cause I'm not a light unto myself
Without a thing of value
Why settle for second best
We don't know what's up ahead
We can't let ourselves forget

[Chorus]

For the things that I love about you
From the woman that you see inside
Don't let it walk out the door
Love follows every time

[Chorus]


Something beautiful remains
Something beautiful remains

Album: Wildest Dreams - 1996

Tears will leave no stain
Time will ease the pain
For every light that fades
Something beautiful remains

We're living in a world of stars and dust
Between heaven and all that surrounds us
We're travelers here, spirits passing through
And the love we give, is all that will endure

Hey now, what we had is gone
But I still remember you
Just like a rose after the rain
Something beautiful remains

[Chorus:]
Tears will leave no stain
Time will ease the pain
For every light that fades
Something beautiful remains

Now the darkness falls, the sun's going down
One by one, the stars are coming out
Tide comes in, washes footprints from the sand
As one day ends, a new day must begin

Hey now, though we are apart
You're here forever in my dreams
Hey now, love is lost and gained
(What you gonna do about it, what you gonna say)
Something beautiful remains

[Chorus]

And you wonder sometimes how we carry on
When you've lost the love you knew
But it's alright, it's alright
To your own heart be true

[Chorus]


Something Special
Something Special

Album: All the Best - 2004

There's something special about you
When it comes to you there's something special
There's something special about love
I swear to God it comes from heaven up above/

You make me feel like no one else before
You make me wonder how easy it is to love
You make me wonder how easy it is to love

There's something special about a kiss
It makes me want no other lover
'cause you make me feel like this
When you're away I want no other

I never found what I was looking for
I got to wonder if no star would ever shine
I can't explain it, but somehow deep inside
I always knew that when it did I'd recognise you

There's something special about you
When it comes to you there's something special
There's something special about love
I swear to God it comes from heaven up above

Now I know what I've been doing here
Now I know what it's all about
'cause in your arms is where I wanna be
In your arms is where I always wanna be, 'cause

There's something special about you
When it comes to you there's something special
There's something special about love
I swear to God it comes from heaven up above

There's something special about you
There's something special about a kiss
There's something special about love
I swear to God it comes from heaven up above

There's something special about you
There's something special about a kiss
'cause you make me feel like this

Something special
Something special
Special


Sometimes when we touch
Sometimes when we touch

Album: Rough (originally from Dan Hill) - 1978

You ask me if I love you
And I choke on my reply
I'd rather hurt you honestly
Than mislead you with a lie
And who am I to judge you
On what you say or do?
I'm only just beginning to see the real you

And sometimes when we touch
The honesty's too much
And I have to close my eyes and hide
I wanna hold you til I die
'Til we both break down and cry
I wanna hold you till the fear in me subsides

Romance and all its strategy
Leaves me battling with my pride
But through the insecurity
Some tenderness survives
I'm just another writer
Still trapped within my truth
A hesitant prize fighter
Still trapped within my youth

And sometimes when we touch
The honesty's too much
And I have to close my eyes and hide
I wanna hold you til I die
Til we both break down and cry
I wanna hold you till the fear in me subsides

At times I'd like to break you
And drive you to your knees
At times I'd like to break through
And hold you endlessly

At times I understand you
And I see how hard you've tried
I've watched while love commands you
And I've watched love pass you by

At times I think we're drifters
Still searching for a friend
A brother or a sister
But then the passion flares again

And sometimes when we touch
The honesty's too much
And I have to close my eyes and hide
I wanna hold you til I die
Til we both break down and cry
I wanna hold you till the fear in me subsides


Soul Deep
Soul Deep

Ike and Tina Turner (originally from The Box Tops) - 1969

Darlin' I don't know much.
I know I love you so much.
My life depends on your touch.

And my love is a river runnin' soul deep.
Way down inside me it's a-soul deep.
It's to big to hide and it can't be denighed.
My love is a river runnin' soul de..ee..ee..ep.

I work myself to death for ya
Just to show I adore ya.
Nothing I wouldn't do for ya.

Cause my love is a river runnin' soul deep.
Way down inside me it's a-soul deep.
It's to big to hide and it can't be denighed.
My love is a river runnin' soul de..ee..ee..ep.

All I ever ever hope to be
Depends on your love for me.
Baby believe me, if you should leave me
I'd be nothing but an empty shell.
I know darn well, I can tell now.

I don't know much.
But I know I love you so much.
My life depends on your touch.

And my love is a river runnin' soul deep.
Way down inside me it's a-soul deep.
It's to big to hide and it can't be denighed.
My love is a river runnin' soul de..ee..ee..ep.

My love is a river runnin' soul deep.
Way down inside me it's a-soul deep.
My love is a river runnin' soul deep.
Way down inside me it's a-soul deep...


Stand by your man
Stand by your man

Album: Stand by your man (originally from Tammy Wynette) - 1988

Sometimes its hard to be a woman
Giving all your love to just one man
You'll have bad times
And he'll have good times
Doing things that you don't understand

Stand by your man
Give him two arms to cling to
And something warm to come to
When nights are cold and lonely
Stand by your man
And tell the world you love him
Keep giving all the love you can
Stand by your man

But if you love him you'll forgive him
Even though he's hard to understand
And if you love him
Oh be proud of him
Cause after all he's just a man

Stand by your man
Give him two arms to cling to
And something warm to come to
When nights are cold and lonely
Stand by your man
And tell the world you love him
Keep giving all the love you can
Stand by your man

Stand by your man
And show the world you love him
Keep giving all the love you can
Stand by your man


Stay a while
Stay a while

Album: What's love got to do with it - 1993

So who are you gonna turn to when the light is fading
Who are you gonna run to when the rain sets in
Who do you come to when the blues comes calling
Who are you trying to fool coming around here again
Yes, I heard you found a new plaything
Right now it seems you need a friend

Why don't you stay a while
Just till the night is through
Tell me you're lonely, baby, I'm lonely, too
So stay awhile
I'll stay awhile

All I ever wanted was a shoulder to lean on
And all you ever wanted was a dream that would last
Promises made in the heat of the moment
I know I never told you that was too much to ask
But it won't take much gentle persuasion
To make you remember, make me forget

Why don't you stay a while
Just till the night is through
Tell me you're lonely, baby, I'm lonely, too
So stay awhile
You may not be a knight in white satin
Maybe the best was all in the past
Turn the lights low, lay down beside me
Just till the dawn, I don't want you to go

Tell me you want me
Baby, I need you too
Stay awhile

Why don't you stay a while
Just till the night is through
Tell me you're lonely, baby, I'm lonely, too

Why don't you stay a while
Just till the night is through
Tell me you love me, baby, I love you too
Why don't you stay a while
Just till the night is through
Tell me you love me, baby, I want you too
Why don't you stay a while
Just till the night is through


Steamy Windows
Steamy Windows

Album: Foreign Affair - 1989

I was thinking about parking the other night
We was out on a back road
Me and my baby was just getting right
Our systems going overload
The radio blasting in the front seat
Churning out the music fine
And we was snuggled up in the back seat
Making up for lost time

[Chorus:]
Steamy windows
Zero visibility
Steamy windows
Coming from the body heat

You can wine and dine with the men all night
With good intent
But there's something about the confrontation on the back road
Breaks down the defense

[Chorus]

Steamy windows
Ain't nobody can see
Steamy windows
Coming from the body heat

There's a sound outside the front door
And I know that's just the wind
But it makes him snuggle up just a little bit closer
Starts things happening again

[Chorus]


Steel Claw
Steel Claw

Album: Private Dancer (originally from Paul Brady) - 1984

A night in television wonderland
Just one more
Fairy tale about some rich bitch
Lying by the swimming pool
It's golden school
Living's easy when you make the rules

Last Friday was the first time
It took only about half a minute
On the stairway
It was child's play
The odds turn out even
When you give up believing in the...

[Chorus:]
Cold law, steel claw
Try to get on board you find the lock is on the door
Well I say 'No way
Don't try to keep me out or there'll be hell to pay'
I don't know who's right or who's wrong
But it doesn't really matter when you're lying in the gutter
It's a see-saw
A long hot battle with the cold law
Is what you get for messing with the steel claw

The politicians have forgotten this place
Except for a flying visit in a black Mercedes
No election time
They cross the line
And everybody runs to watch the pantomine
If they could see what's going on around here
So many people hanging on the edge
Crying out for revolution
Retribution
The odds turn out even
When you give up believing in the...

[Chorus]

Sometimes I think I'm going crazy
Sometimes I do a line
Makes me laugh
Makes me want to take a joyride
On the high tide
Sometimes I'm contemplating suicide
Meanwhile Eddy's on the West Coast
He's making out with some sweet senorita
Up in Frisco you and I know
The odds turn out even
When you give up believing...

[Chorus]


Stronger than the wind
Stronger than the wind

Single: I don't wanna lose you - 1989

You think you've done it all but I'd like to make a bet
There's so much more up ahead, you ain't seen nothing yet
I's gonna take a little time before the rain dies down
Till the storm is over you've got to stand your ground

You've got to be stronger than the wind
Got to be stronger
Stronger than the wind, it's gonna take a little longer
Stronger than the wind

You know it could be worse, at least you're not alone
There's a million billion souls who haven't got a home
They haven't any bills to pay and no letters to send
They just wait for judgement day, at least you got a friend

Come on be stronger than the wind
Got to be stronger
Stronger than the wind, it's gonna take a little longer
Stronger than the wind

A tree stays rooted but a tree knows how to bend
Let the thunder and lightning flash above you
Right here on earth you got me to love you
You've got me to love you


Sunset on Sunset
Sunset on Sunset

Album: Love Explosion - 1979

Sunset on sunset
Blinded by twilight in your eyes
Sunset on sunset
Watching your daydreams, fade and die

Too many lonely nights,
Among the city lights
That you’re shakin
Too many empty starts
Too many tempted your heart
Was that aching
Now you’re breaking

Just like the sun on the heat
But now you’ve hurt yourself so bad
That no one else ever will
lying beside you
Someone you think you’ve met last night
lying beside you
Something you’ve known was never right

When you were young last year
You didn’t know that fear would surround you
You are a moving queen, and not some sweet 16
When they’ve bowed for you, all around you
They’ve tried to tear you apart
And now the easy way out for you is gonna be so hard

I always thought my love would help you
Maybe I’ve fallen to live
Back in the fallen stars of night oh dear

You’ve finally had enough
Of coming down so rough
When you’re flying
You think you’ve seen the end
Of something cool and friendly
And I’m dying, but you’re crying
You’ve left yourself out again
Your only locking the door so good
That I can’t get in

Sunset on sunset
Sunset on sunset
Your life around you
Sunset on sunset
Only time can save you
etc.



Take me to the river
Take me to the river

Single: Girls (originally from Al Green)- 1986

Wash me!

I don't know why I love you like I do
with all the changes I keep going through
lost all the money and my happiness
and I haven't had the worst of it yet
I wanna know, tell me, tell me why
I love it still

Take me to the river
wash me down
yeah, drop me in the water
back to my fishing ground

And I don't know why they treat me so bad
think of all the good things that I've never had
love is an ocean I won't forget
my sweet sixteen I will never regret
I wanna know, won't you tell me, tell me why
I love it still

C'mon, river
wet me down
yeah, dip me in the water
back to my fishing ground

And hold me, squeeze me
just love me, and tease me
till I can't, till I can't
take it no more

I don't know why you treat me so bad
think of all the good things I've never had
love's an ocean I won't forget
my sweet sixteen I will never regret
I wanna know, you tell me, tell me why
I love it still

Take me to the river
and dip me in the water
take me to the river
drop me in the water
take me to the river
drop me in the water
yeah take me to the water my fishing ground
wash me, wet me
squeeze me, and tease me


Talk to my heart
Talk to my heart

Album: Twenty Four Seven - 1999

I found a friend, someone to help me
And a place I can be myself when I'm in trouble now
I've lost it and I don't know how
I come to you 'cause you can show me
Get me back to the me I know with a remedy
Baby I need your therapy
With your healing kiss you know how to make my mind relax
I will listen to the words you say and just lie back

Talk to my heart that's where real talkin' starts
Words of love that cut straight to my heart
Reach out and touch, so few words say so much
I can hear you when you tell it like it is
When you talk straight to my heart

I guess it shows I need attention
Somehow you're asking all the right questions that I've gotta say
What's been on my mind these days
And I know you know just how to make my mind react
When it's coming straight from you that's my first point of contact

Talk to my heart that's where real talkin' starts
Words of love that cut straight to my heart
Reach out and touch, so few words say so much
I can hear you when you tell it like it is
When you talk straight to my...

I'm bad at making decisions
But being alone with you just feels so right, feels so right
I'm losing my inhibitions
With every minute I share with you tonight, share it with you tonight

Talk, talk to me
To my heart, to my heart, oh yeah
Come one, come on and reach out
'Cause the words just mean so much
I can hear you
When you talk right to my heart

Talk to my heart that's where real talkin' starts
Words of love that cut straight to my heart
Reach out and touch, so few words say so much
I can hear you when you tell it like it is
When you talk straight to my heart
I can hear you, I can hear you


Teach me again
Teach me again

Single: Teach me again - 2006 - with Elisa

What's it to walk on a silent road,
to be thirsty and wait for - wait for the rain?
What is it like?

You wake me up with a ray of light,
tell me a joke and if you don't know one, never mind!
Can't we just look at the Sun

and live a lifetime in a day
like some butterflies? Not quite the same!
A lifetime in a day
in which we learn to fly out of our cage!

So what is the smell of summer like? And
what is the sound of your heart when you're running? And
what is to be fearless like? And
what is to have nothing in mind but plenty of space?

In this place there's the law of the strongest
but we confuse the weak with the one that
makes big mistakes
and the strong with the perfect

And live a lifetime in a day,
like some butterflies? Not quite the same!
A lifetime in a day,
in which we learn to fly out of this cage!

So what is the smell of summer like? And
what is the sound of your heart when you're running? And
what is to be fearless like? And
what is to have nothing in mind but plenty of space?


Tearing us apart
Tearing us apart

Single: Tearing us apart - with Eric Clapton - 1987

You know the sun is shining
It's raining in my heart
I don't know what to do
Since we've been apart
Why don't you tell me, babe
What is going on
You know I love you darling
Don't want to be alone

They're tearing us apart
They're breaking up my heart
I knew it from the start
Your friends are tearing us apart

You know I can't go on
Feeling this old way
You know my heart is burning
It's burning everyday
You know I love you, baby
No one else will do
Why don't you reconsider
Do what I want you to

They're tearing us apart
They're breaking up my heart
I knew it from the start
Your friends are tearing us apart


The Best
The Best

Album: Foreign Affair (originally from Bonnie Tyler) - 1989

I call you when I need you, my heart's on fire
You come to me, come to me wild and wild
When you come to me
Give me everything I need
Give me a lifetime promises and a world of dreams
Speak a language of love like you know what it means
And it can't be wrong
Take my heart and make it strong baby

[Chorus:]
You're simply the best
Better than all the rest
Better than anyone
Anyone I've ever met
I'm stuck on your heart
I hang on every word you say
Tear us apart
Baby, I would rather be dead

In your heart, I see the star of every night and every day
In your eyes I get lost, I get washed away
Just as long as I'm here in your arms
I could be in no better place

[Chorus]

Each time you leave me I start losing control
You're walking away with my heart and my soul
I can feel you even when I'm alone
Oh, baby, don't let go

[Chorus]


The bitch is back
The bitch is back

Album: Rough (originally from Elton John) - 1978

I was justified when I was five
Raising cane, I spit in your eye
Times are changing, now the poor get fat
But the fever's gonna catch you when the bitch gets back

Eat meat on Friday that's alright
Even like steak on a Saturday night
I can bitch the best at your social do's
I get high in the evening sniffing pots of glue

I'm a bitch, I'm a bitch
Oh the bitch is back
Stone cold sober as a matter of fact
I can bitch, I can bitch
`Cause I'm better than you
It's the way that I move
The things that I do

I entertain by picking brains
Sell my soul by dropping names
I don't like those, my God, what's that
Oh it's full of nasty habits when the bitch gets back


The difference between us
The difference between us

Single: Missing you - 1996

If you really love me don't try to change me
If you look in the mirror, it's not me you see
I don't want what's yours as mine
No I'll never cross that line
I want you just the way you are
Boy you're everything I'm not
And that's all I've ever wanted

If we ever come close
If we ever discover
How to hold on and keep our faith in each other
The difference between us will keep us together

I tell you my love is everlasting
If you promise to give your best every moment
No, you don't have to compromise
Try to live each other's life
We can be ourselves tonight

If we ever come close
If we ever discover
How to hold on and keep our faith in each other
The difference between us will keep us together

If we open our eyes
Don't look any further
Cos we found all we'll ever need in each other
The difference between us will keep us together

So don't look at the words I've said
There's nothing that I might regret
No don't play games inside your head

Keep us, keep us
What's going on inside your head
Keep us, keep us
Keep us together

There will always be music
There will always be music

LP: Tina turns the country on! (originally from Dolly Parton) - 1974

Rain makes rhytmic sounds when it's falling
There's music in a new born baby's cry
There's music all around and there is no sweeter sound
For that's the way a man expresses life

As the farmer works the fields he sings a song
The songbirds in the trees sing along
And the wind makes melodies as it whistles through the trees
Man's burdens are made lighter with a song

There will always be music
as long as there's a story to be told
There will always be music
cause music is the voice of the soul
There will always be music

A mother sings as she rocks her babies
Children sing the noted nursery rhymes
The old church bell rings for the Sunday morning singing
Music is as old as the time

In heaven there's a choir of angels singing
We often heard about God's angel band
Music will live on when men on earth are gone There will always be music in the promised land There will always be music as long as there's a story to be told There will always be music cause music is the voice of the soul There will always be music There will always be music as long as there's a story to be told I tell you music is the voice of the soul There will always be music There will always be music Music is the voice of the soul as long as there's a story to be told There will always be music There will always be music


The woman I'm supposed to be
The woman I'm supposed to be

Album: Rough (originally from Cliff Wade)- 1978

Won’t you give me just one day without a worry
I could use the extra hours I’m in a hurry
I can tell you how it feels to be holding on to the woman I’m supposed to be

Won’t you give me just one hour to displayed my kindness
I’m so sure I got the power to kill you blindness
I can show you how it feels to be holding on to the woman I’m supposed to be

And when you’re down
All the things that helps is a little understanding
And I pray for a happy ending
Won’t you give me just one day without a worry
I could use the extra hours ‘cause I’m in a hurry
I can show you how it feels to be holding on to the woman I’m supposed to be

I can show you how it feels to be holding on
Holding on
Holding on to the woman I’m supposed to be
Holding on
Holding on
Holding on to the woman I’m supposed to be


Thief of hearts
Thief of hearts

Album: Wildest Dreams - 1996

Let me tell you about a man I knew
Yeah, I knew him all too well

My attitude has always been
You can have me for tonight
Not for tomorrow
It's gonna cost you plenty
More than you can afford
More than you can borrow
Well I can make them fall in love
Just as easy as I
Pick their pockets hey
And when I've done the deed
I jump on a freight train
And make my getaway

[Chorus:]
Oh I'm a thief of hearts
A burglar in the night
Before they knew what hit them
I was out of sight
Been a thief of hearts
Now I'm paying for my crimes
Cause now you're gone and stolen mine

I met you on a starry night
Full moon in your eyes
Did something strange to me
I was all prepared to spin my web
Take you for a ride
But there was a fork in the street
Well I didn't mean to fall in love
Didn't practice the rules
That I've been taught
You never get involved
Never drop your defenses
But this time I got caught

[Chorus]

Feels so good, I want more
It should be against the law


‘Till the right man comes along
‘Till the right man comes along

Album: Break every rule - 1986

It’s time to face the music
Tonight I came to use it
You never know
Who you’re gonna meet in here

I thought I’d never find him
The dark and handsome kind
I used to dream of
And now you’re standing there

Though you’re looking good to me
It doesn’t mean that you can do as you please
No, no, no, no
Baby you’re the best thing in my life
Baby you’re my best bet here tonight

I’ve got no good reason to believe we’ll last for long
But that’s good enough for me ‘till the right man comes along

I’ve waited for a lover
The kind who’ll stay forever
You look to me
Like the sort of man I need

It’s not the best scenario
But now I’ve found you I’m not letting you go
No, no, no, no
Baby you’re the best thing in my life
Baby you’re my best bet here tonight
For the perfect guy maybe I should be holding on
And with you I could
‘Till the right man
‘Till the right man comes along

Baby you’re the best thing in my life
Baby the best bet here tonight
Until the right man comes along
‘Till the right man comes along
Comes along
Baby you’re the best
Say you the best
You’re the best thing in my life
Comes along

Album: What's love got to do with it - 1993

I'm talking to the priest
The high priest
And everybody out there in the universe
If what I'm saying is wrong
Then tell me the right way to say it
Cause I wanna be made over

Paint me red, paint me green
Give me liberty, wash me clean
Make me over, make me nice
Cause when I'm done, Lord, I wanna be right

Oh Lord
Make me over, I wanna be made over
Oh Lord
Make me over, I wanna be made over

Make me smart, make me king
Give a lot, give me steam
I want eternal beauty, spiritual things
Cause when I'm done, yes I wanna be a good thing

Oh Lord
Make me over, I wanna be made over
Oh Lord
Make me over, I wanna be made over
Oh Lord
Make me over, I wanna be made over
Oh Lord

I wanna go places, I wanna do some things
I wanna be a star, I wanna have a big name
But in my heart, let beauty reign
And when I'm done, I wanna have fame

Lord make me nice, Lord make me good
Give me power, give me love
I wanna be desireable, voluptous, tantalising

Tonight I'll be staying here with you
Tonight I'll be staying here with you

LP: Tina turns the country on! (originally from Bob Dylan) - 1974

Throw my ticket out the window
Throw my suitcase out there too
Throw my troubles out the door
I don't need them any more
'Cause tonight I'll be staying here with you.

I should have left this town this morning
But it was more than I could do
Oh, your love comes on so strong
And I've waited all day long
For tonight when I'll be staying here with you.

Is it really any wonder
The love that a stranger might receive
You cast your spell and I went under
I find it so difficult to leave.

I can hear that whistle blowin'
I see that stationmaster, too
If there's a poor boy on the street
Then let him have my seat
'Cause tonight I'll be staying here with you.

Throw my ticket out the window
Throw my suitcase out there too
Throw my troubles out the door
I don't need them any more
'Cause tonight I'll be staying here with you.


Total control
Total control

Album: We are the world - 1985

Looking counter clockwise
knowing what could happend
any moment maybe you
maybe even you

Steadfast collapse
always certain any momen
t maybe you maybe you

Recline complete dreams too sweet
I can't do it not with you
not even with you
maybe never with you

And I'd sell my soul for total control
yeah, I'd sell my soul for total control

Street wet tonight, lovers touch
it's pure delight
always certain any moment

maybe even you
and I'd sell my soul for total control

Twenty Four Seven
Twenty Four Seven

Album: Twenty Four Seven - 1999

Some folks say there's a price on love
Watch your freedom go, watch your freedom go
Just can't breathe when you're 'Hand in Glove'
Watch your freedom go, baby I don't know
But how can they mean it?
How come they give it up?
How long until they see
The modern laws of lovin' don't apply to me

[Chorus:]
Twenty Four Seven, stay here with me
Twenty Four Seven, throw away the key
Twenty Four Seven, I don't wanna be free

You get by if you kiss and tell
Hear the people say, hear the people say
Two strong hearts gotta share one cell
Hear the people say, but it ain't my way
How can they mean it?
How come they add it up?
I'll give my heart and my soul
If loving you is prison I don't need parole

[Chorus]

Twenty Four Seven, stay here with me
Twenty Four Seven, throw away the key
Twenty Four Seven, I don't wanna be free, free, free
Twenty Four Seven, around the clock
Twenty Four Seven, I never want it to stop
Twenty Four Seven, mmm, here with me

I'm gonna count the time
That you're gonna be mine
Seven days a week
Twenty four hours ain't enough for me

How can they mean it?
How come they add it up?
I'm gonna give my heart and my soul
If loving you is prison I don't need parole

[Chorus]


Two People
Two People

Album: Break Every Rule - 1986

Two people living on the edge of life
Are people running out of dreams and time
I can hear it when you tell me so
I can feel it but I can't let go

[Chorus:]
Two people gotta stick together and love one another
Save it for a rainy day
Some people gotta stay whatever
Give one another shelter on a rainy day

Two people living in the way we do
Are people trying to keep a love anew
What to say to make some sense of it
What to do to make the feeling fit

[Chorus]

I'll come running to your rescue
You gotta stand by me
There's a lot of love between us
We should never let go

[Chorus]


Typical Male
Typical Male

Album: Break Eevery Rule - 1986

Tell me lawyer what to do
I think I'm falling in love with you
Defend me, from the way I feel
Won't you give me some advice
On how to handle my private life
I'm sure that we can make a deal
I confess I'm a fool for men with a clever mind
But your intellect ain't no match
For this heart of mine

[Chorus:]
All I want is a little reaction
Just enough to tip the scales
I'm just using my female attraction
On a typical male, on a typical male

Your sense of justice I'll embrace
But your defense don't help my case
I'm deep in trouble with the law
Something about authority
Seems to bring out the bad in me
Hey lawyer, gotta catch me when I fall
Oh they say that you match your wits with the best of them
But I know when I'm close you're just like the rest of them

[Chorus]

So put your books aside
Loosen off the suit and tie
Open up your heart and let me in
Open up your heart and let me in

[Chorus]



Under my thumb
Under my thumb

Album: Acid Queen (originally from the Rolling Stones) - 1975

Under my thumb
The girl who once had me down
Under my thumb
The girl who once pushed me around

It's down to me
The difference in the clothes she wears
Down to me, the change has come,
She's under my thumb

Ain't it the truth babe?

Under my thumb
The squirmin' dog who's just had her day
Under my thumb
A girl who has just changed her ways

It's down to me, yes it is
The way she does just what she's told
Down to me, the change has come
She's under my thumb
Ah, ah, say it's alright

Under my thumb
A siamese cat of a girl
Under my thumb
She's the sweetest, hmmm, pet in the world

It's down to me
The way she talks when she's spoken to
Down to me, the change has come,
She's under my thumb
Ah, take it easy babe
Yeah

It's down to me, oh yeah
The way she talks when she's spoken to
Down to me, the change has come,
She's under my thumb
Yeah, it feels alright

Under my thumb
Her eyes are just kept to herself
Under my thumb, well I
I can still look at someone else

It's down to me, oh that's what I said
The way she talks when she's spoken to
Down to me, the change has come,
She's under my thumb
Say, it's alright.

Say it's all...
Say it's all...

Take it easy babe
Take it easy babe
Feels alright
Take it, take it easy babe.


Undercover agent for the blues
Undercover agent for the blues

Album: Foreign Affair - 1989

He was my lover, he was working undercover
The fellow knew all of the moves
He really had me romping, bare footing stomping
He just kept igniting my fuse
He was blinded by the blackness of my long silk stockings
He would rock me with an optical illusion
And this ain't how I thought it'd be
He just kept on keeping me in a state of total confusion

He took me for a ride
And rattled me down to my shoes
But I found out
He was an undercover agent for the blues
He never really needed love from any direction no I was just an innocent bystander
He just kept getting kinkier, hook, line and sinker
Just too hot to handle
He took me by storm
It must have been a season for the fools
So bad
He was an undercover agent for the blues

He took me for a ride
And rattled me down to my shoes
But I found out
He was an undercover agent for the blues


Unfinished Sympathy
Unfinished Sympathy

Album: Wildest Dreams (originally from Massive Attack) - 1996

I know that I've imagined love before
And how it could be with you
You really hurt me baby
You really cut me baby
How could you have a day without a night
You're the book that I have opened
And now I've got to know much more

The curiousness of your potential kiss
Has got my mind and body aching
You really hurt me baby
You really cut me baby
How could you have a day without a night
You're the book that I have opened
And now I've got to know much more

Like a soul without a mind
And a body without a heart
I'm missing every part

Way of the world
Way of the world

Single: Way of the world - 1991

Baby, I need a hand to hold tonight
and one bright star to remind me
how dear is this life
and baby, I've never known anyone like you
there's something very special about you
I can imagine living without you

It's the way of the world and it's motion
and no ocean can keep us apart
when the moment is right and you're holding me tight
you capture the beat of my heart
in my heart there's a fire that's burning
and there isn't a thing I can do
I'm resigned to the fact and there's no turning back
and I'll never regret loving you

Baby, I will go anywhere you need
as long as you're there beside me
baby, that's all I need
hold me, hold me and never let me go
I'm always gonna care about you
I never wanna be without you

It's the way of the world and it's motion
and no ocean can keep us apart
when the moment is right and you're holding me tight
you capture the beat of my heart
in my heart there's a fire that's burning
and there isn't a thing I can do
I'm resigned to the fact and there's no turning back
and I'll never regret loving you

You're everything I believe in
so don't ever lose that feeling
don't ever loose that feeling


We are the world
We are the world

Album: We are the world - 1985

There comes a time
when we heed a certain call
when the world must come
together as one
there are people dying
and it's time to lend a hand to life
the greatest gift of all

We can't go on pretending day by day
that someone, somewhere
will soon make a change
we are all a part of God's great big family
and the thruth, you know, love is all we need

We are the world, we are the children
we are the ones
who make a brighter day
so let's start giving

There's a choice we're making
we're saving our one lives
it's true we'll make a better day
just you and me

Send them your heart
so they know that someone cares
and their lives will be stronger and free
as God has shown us
by turning stones to bread
so we all must lend a helping hand

We are the world, we are the children
we are the ones
who make a brighter day
so let's start giving

There's a choice we're making
we're saving our one lives
it's true we'll make a better day
just you and me

When your down and out
there seems no hope at all
but if you just believe
there's no way we can fall
let us realize
that a change can only come
when we stand together as one


We don't need another hero (Thunderdome)
We don't need another hero (Thunderdome)

Single: We Don't Need Another Hero (Thunderdome - 1985

Out of the ruins
Out from the wreckage
Can't make the same mistake this time
We are the children
The last generation
We are the ones they left behind
And I wonder when we are ever gonna change
Living under the fear, till nothing else remains

We don't need another hero
We don't need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond
Thunderdome

Looking for something
We can rely on
There's gotta be something better out there
Love and compassion
Their day is coming
All else are castles built in the air
And I wonder when we are ever gonna change
Living under the fear till nothing else remains

All the children say
We don't need another hero
We don't need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond
Thunderdome

So what do we do with our lives
We leave only a mark
Will our story shine like a light
Or end in the dark
Give it all or nothing

We don't need another hero
We don't need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond
Thunderdome


What you get is what you see
What you get is what you see

Album: Break Every Rule - 1986

Some boys got the look of a Greek Adonis
Some boys try to talk you off your feet
Some boys think they're gods gift to woman
Some boys think they're sweet enough to eat
Try to change the habit of a lifetime
Don't even try
Cause when you cut down deeper than the icing
You realize

[Chorus:]
What you get is what you see
Ain't nothing more to it
And if you wanna love a woman like me
It takes a man to do it
If what you get is what you see
Then I don't want your kind of love

Some guys got lips that you can't help kissing (Muh, muh, muh)
And some guys got a smile you can't resist
Some guys gotta build a reputation
They just wanna add you to the list
You got a lot of physical attraction
I can't deny
But can you guarantee me satisfaction
While I'm still waiting, waiting, waiting...

[Chorus]

So let me see your cards on the table
Before I buy
I always read the writing on the label
So give me reason to believe there's more to you than meets the eye

[Chorus]


What's love got to do with it
What's love got to do with it

Album: Private Dancer - 1984

You must understand
Though the touch of your hand
Makes my pulse react
That it's only the thrill
Of boy meeting girl
Opposites attract
It's physical
Only logical
You must try to ignore
That it means more than that

[Chorus:]
What's love got to do, got to do with it
What's love, but a second-hand emotion
What's love got to do, got to do with it
Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken

It may seem to you
That I'm acting confused
When you're close to me
If I tend to look dazed
I read it some place
I've got cause to be
There's a name for it
There's a phrase that fits
But whatever the reason
You do it for me

[Chorus]

I've been taking on a new direction
And I have to say
I've been thinking 'bout my own protection
It scares me to feel this way

[Chorus]

What's love got to do, got to do with it
What's love, but a sweet old fashioned notion
What's love got to do, got to do with it
Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken


Whatever you need
Whatever you need

Album: Twenty Four Seven - 1999

In what other lives have I known your kiss
And what forgotten moments have I felt like this
The way you touch me I come undone
You know me more than anyone
Whatever you want

In what other lives have I touched your face
And what words did we whisper in a strange forbidden place
To be with you baby is to find myself
We're two of a kind, you and I
I couldn't love anyone else
You are my beginning, my end
You are my lover, my friend
In this life, in this time

Whatever you want, whatever you need
I will be right here waiting, baby baby baby
Whatever you want, whatever you need

And when exactly did I breathe you in
Feel like I've known you for a thousand years
You're so familiar to me and there is no fear
You are my beginning, my end
You are my lover, my friend
In this life, in this time

Whatever you want, whatever you need
I will be right here waiting, baby baby baby
Whatever you want, whatever you need
I will be right here waiting, yeah yeah yeah yeah

Watch the sun go down, yeah yeah
My past and future in you are bound, oh yeah
I watch as time moves on, I'm alive and strong
And when I'm with you there's no right, no wrong

Whatever you want, whatever you need
I will be right here waiting, baby baby baby
Whatever you want, whatever you need
I'm gonna be right here waiting, baby baby
Whatever you want (Whatever you want)
Whatever you need (Whatever you need)
I will be right here waiting, baby baby baby
Whatever you want, whatever you need
Whatever you want
Right here, right here waiting
Right here, right here waiting


Whatever you want
Whatever you want

Single: Whatever you want - 1996

Whatever you want me to do
I will do it for you
Whatever you want me to be
I will be what you need
Because it's love that I feel
Whenever you're really near
I'm feeling sensual I can't rely on myself
I'm wanting you and no one else
You've got me wrapped up
Cause times takes what love heals
Wherever you are I know it's for real

[Chorus:]
Whatever you want me to do
I will do it for you
Whatever you want me to be
I will be what you need
Because it's love that I feel
Whenever you're really near
I'm feeling sensual
And I, I know that it's real

I know you've had pains in your heart
That have torn you apart
I know you've been safe on your own
But together we're strong
Because it's love that I feel
Whenever you're holding me
I'm feeling passionate
And I can't deny it in myself
I'm wanting you and no one else
You've got the power
Cause love takes what time steals
And deep in my heart
I know that it's real

[Chorus:]
Whatever you want me to do
I will do it for you
Whatever you want me to be
I will be what you need
Because it's love that I feel
Whenever you're next to me
I'm feeling sensual

I know (I know), I know (I know) that it's real
Cause times takes and love heals
Wherever you are
I know it's for real
I know, I know that it's real

Whatever you want me to do baby, baby, baby
I will do, darling, do it for you
Whatever you want me to be, yeah
I will be everything
Because it's love that I feel
Whenever you're really near
I'm feeling sexual
It's time that I breathe
For the love that pleases me
Too easily, easily, baby


When I was young
When I was young

Single: Better be good to me (originally from Eric Burdon and the Animals) - 1984

The rooms were so much colder then
My father was a soldier then
The times were very hard
When I was young
When I was young

I smoked my first cigarette at ten
And for boy I had a bad yen
I had quite a ball
When I was young
When I was young
When I was young
When I was young it was more important
Pain more painful
The laughter much louder
When I was young
When I was young

I met my first love at thirteen
He was brown and I was pretty green
I learned quite a lot
When I was young
When I was young

When I was young
It was more important
Pain more painful
The laughter much louder When I was young

My faith was so much stronger then
I believed in fellow men
And I was so much older then
When I was young
When I was young
When I was young
When I was young
When I was young
When I was young
When I was young
When I was young
When I was young


When the heartache is over
When the heartache is over

Single: When the heartache is over - 1999

Once in a lifetime you find
Someone to show you the way
Someone to make your decisions
And I let you lead me Astray

Who did you think you were fooling
Said you were missing me blind
But the truth is I knew you were lying
You were using me time after time

[Chorus:]
When the heartache is over
I know I won't be missing you (Missing you)
Won't look over my shoulder
'Cause I know that I can live without you
Oh live without you
Oh I can live without you

Time to move on with my life now
Leaving the past all behind
I can make my own decisions
It was only a matter of time
Sometimes I look back in anger
Thinking about all the pain
But I know that I'm stronger without you
And that I'll never need you again

[Chorus]


Without you
hithout you

Album: Twenty Four Seven - 1999

I’m feeling low I tear out my hair
Walking round in circles like I don’t care
One shoe off the other one on
‘Cause I threw the dam shoe the night that you were gone
I’m in the mood
I’m in such a mess
My heart is broken and I’m in distress
Don’t wanna eat
Don’t wanna sleep
‘Cause I’m thinking ‘bout the dirty way you treated me
I’m in no mood for company
You see I just don’t want your pity
‘Cause I call your name
To drive me insane
And I feel the need
To make my heart bleed
And baby I don’t know why
I’m drowning in tears
‘Cause I don’t wanna die
So I find myself another way
To learn to leave another day
Without you

Looking down at the way I get dressed
I need to know is that why you left
My face is sweet but my head is wrecked
By the things that you said on the night you left
You can keep your sympathy
Because I just don’t want your pity
‘Cause I call your name
To drive me insane
And I feel the need
To make my heart bleed
And baby I don’t know why
I’m drowning in tears
‘Cause I don’t wanna die
So I find myself another way
To learn to leave another day
Without you

To live without you
To live without you

You know
You can keep your sympathy
Because I just don’t want your pity
‘Cause I call your name
To drive me insane
And I feel the need
To make my heart bleed
And baby I don’t know why
I’m drowning in tears
‘Cause I don’t wanna die
So I find myself another way
To learn to leave another day
Without you baby
I call your name
To drive me insane
I feel the need
To make my heart bleed
And baby I don’t know why
I’m drowning in tears
‘Cause I don’t wanna die
So I find myself another way
To learn to leave another day
Without you baby
I call your name
To drive me insane
I feel the need
To make my heart bleed

Why must we wait until tonight?

Album: What's Love got to do with it - 1993

Tell me why
Why must we wait until tonight
Tell me why
Why must we wait until tonight

You're gonna take a little time
Gonna drink me like a fine wine
Write the book of love line by line
But I wanna play with you baby

'Cos my body just can't say no
And my fingers just won't let go

Tell me why

Take a little love and watch it grow
But I wanna lay with you darling
Right now
Make love all day with you baby
And show you how
Take my body don't take my time
Take your lips and make them mine
Tell me why
Why must we wait until tonight
Tell me why
Why when I've waited all my life
You're touching me, I'm touching you
What should I do now?
Tell me why
Why must we wait till tonight



You ain't woman enough (to take my man)
You ain't woman enough (to take my man)

Album: Tina Sings Country (originally from Loretta Lynn) - 1999

You've come to tell me something you say I ought to know
That he don't love me anymore and I'll have to let him go
You say you're gonna take him oh but I don't think you can
Cause you ain't woman enough to take my man
Women like you they're a dime a dozen you can buy 'em anywhere
For you to get to him I'd have to move over and I'm gonna stand right here
It'll be over my dead body so get out while you can
Cause you ain't woman enough to take my man

Sometimes a man start lookin' at things that he don't need
He took a second look at you but he's in love with me
Well I don't know where they leave you oh but I know where I'll stand
And you ain't woman enough to take my man
Women like you they're a dime...
No you ain't woman enough to take my man


You can't stop me loving you
You can't stop me loving you

Album: Foreign Affair - 1989

You can run and you can hide
You can tell me you're untrue
You can play around with my feelings
Say you found somebody new
But there's one thing you can't do
You can't stop me loving you

You know I love you baby
Why do you treat me this way
I don't deserve this kind of treatment
And I'd have been so good like a lover should
And I'd have loved you anyway, Yeah Hey
You can run and you can hide
You can tell me you're untrue
You can play around with my feelings
Say you found somebody new
But there's one thing you can't do
You can't stop me loving you

You're gonna drive me crazy honey
Why are you so blind
Cool, aw you think you're so cool now, baby
But you just can't see all the love in me
When I give you all the time, in time
I know I'm gonna be fine
You ain't gonna pull my chain
I ain't gonna change my mind
How do you feel baby I bet you feel real tall
Why did you leave your manhunt, honey
When I give you love and it's not enough
And you try to make me look small


You got what I'm gonna get

You’re the flame
Feel it grow
Baby you got

One thought
Flashes through my mind

Leaving you behind
You got
What I have to find
Get ready
Get say

From wanting you
Stay with me
Baby you got

You got

I’m hot
And you can bet I’m gonna get my way
Let me tell you that one thought
Flashes through my mind

Get ready
Get say
‘Cause you got what I’m gonna get

Would you turn your back on thunder
I wouldn’t turn away from you
Just between us don’t you wonder


You Know Who (Is Doing You Know What)
You Know Who (Is Doing You Know What)

Album: Foreign Affair - 1989

I heard some news this morning
And it almost devastated me
It hit my heart without a warning
The story is on the street
I overheard a conversation it was all about you
I can't believe what they're saying baby, it better not be true
They say you know who is doing you know what
How am I supposed to feel
You know who is doing you know what
I thought our love was real

They say you can't believe everything you hear
But you've got me feeling insecure
I thought you and I had a good thing going
Now baby I'm not so sure
I'm gonna have mixed emotions when I see you tonight
I'm afraid I see the true story when I look in your eyes
They say you know who is doing you know what
Baby I've got to know
You know who is doing you know what
I don't wanna let you go

I don't wanna be jumping to conclusions
I would rather keep my trust in you
Is your love for me just an illusion
Baby tell me is it true
You know who is doing you know what
I've got to keep my courage up
You know who is doing you know what
Are you gonna turn your back on love
You know who is doing you know what
You know who is doing you know what
You know who is doing you know what
You know who is doing you know what
You know who is doing you know what

    Sometimes you've got to let everything go -- purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything . . . whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you'll find that when you're free, your true creativity, your true self comes out.

    I never said "Well, I don't have this and I don't have that." I said, I don't have this yet, but I'm going to get it.

    I will never give in to old age until I become old. And I'm not old yet!

    I didn't have anybody, really, no foundation in life, so I had to make my own way. Always, from the start. I had to go out in the world and become strong, to discover my mission in life.
