A Gay Caballero

I am a gay caballero
Coming from Rio de Janeiro
With nice oily hair,
And full of hot air,
I'm an expert at shooting the bull-o

I'm seeking a fair senorita
Not thin and yet not too much meat-a.
I'll woo her a while
In my Argentine style
I'll carry her off of her feet-a

I'll tell her I'm of the nobilio
And live in a great big castillio.
I must have a miss
Who will long for a kiss
She not say "Oh don't be so silly-o.

It was at a swell cabaretta
While wining and dining I met her.
We drunk one or two
As other folks do.
The night was wet but she got wetter.

She told me her name was Estrella.
She said, "stick around me, young fella
For mosquitoes they bite
And they're awful tonight
And you smell just like citronella."

Oh I can’t forget that senora
While telling her that I adore her
Asleep she did fall,
didn’t mind that at all
But she was a terrible snorer

She was a dancer and sing-a
At me she kept pointing her finger
And saying to me
"Si, Senor, Si Si"
But I couldn't see a durn thing-a

She told me that she was so lonely
So I climbed upon her balcony.
While under her spell
I heard someone yell
"Get away from here you big baloney."

I swore I'd win this senorita
I woo'ed her on the sofita
Then her husband walked in
What he did was a sin.
I can still hear the birds sing "Tweet tweet-a"

Now I am a sad caballero
Returning to Rio de Janeiro
Minus my hair,
A bruise here and there,
For her husband he chewed off my ear-o.

All this world and the seven seas

I am free as the breeze
Free to wander where I please
But all this world and the seven seas
Couldn't call me away if I can stay
In these arms holding me.

There's no bars, there's no walls
Islands becken ,fortune calls
But all this world and the seven seas
Couldn't call me away if I can stay
In these arms holding me.

Planes to Rome ships to Spain
China sunsets, jungle silver with rain
But what a fool I would be
To leave heaven, no not me
But all this world and the seven seas.

Couldn't call me away if I can stay
In these arms holding me.

Couldn't call me away if I can stay
In these arms holding me.

Annie's song

You fill up my senses
Like a night in a forest
Like the mountains in springtime
Like a walk in the rain
Like a storm in the desert
Like a sleepy blue ocean
You fill up my senses
Come fill me again

Come let me love you
Let me give my life to you
Let me drown in your laughter
Let me die in your arms
Let me lay down beside you
Let me always be with you
Come let me love you
Come love me again

You fill up my senses
Like a night in a forest
Like the mountains in springtime
Like a walk in the rain
Like a storm in the desert
Like a sleepy blue ocean
You fill up my senses
Come fill me again

Bridge Over Troubled Water

When you're weary, feeling small,
When tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all;
I'm on your side. When times get rough
And friends just can't be found,
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.
When you're down and out,
When you're on the street,
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you.
I'll take your part.
When darkness comes
And pains is all around,
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.

Sail on silvergirl,
Sail on by.
Your time has come to shine.
All your dreams are on their way.
See how they shine.
If you need a friend
I'm sailing right behind.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind.

Can't take my eyes off you

You're just too good to be true
Can't take my eyes off of you
You'd be like heaven to touch
I wanna hold you so much
At long last love has arrived
And I thank God I'm alive
You're just too good to be true
Can't take my eyes off of you

Pardon the way that I stare
There's nothing else to compare
The sight of you leaves me weak
There are no words left to speak
But if you feel like I feel
Please let me know that it's real
You're just too good to be true
Can't take my eyes off of you

I love you baby, and if it's quite all right
I need you baby to warm the lonely night
I love you baby, trust in me when I say
Oh pretty baby, don't bring me down I pray
Oh pretty baby, now that I've found you, stay
And let me love you baby, let me love you

You're just too good to be true
Can't take my eyes off of you
You'd be like heaven to touch
I wanna hold you so much
At long last love has arrived
And I thank God I'm alive
You're just too good to be true
Can't take my eyes off of you

I love you baby, and if it's quite all right
I need you baby to warm the lonely night
I love you baby, trust in me when I say
Oh pretty baby, and if it's quite alright
I need you baby to warm the lonely night
I love you baby, trust in me when I say
Oh pretty baby, and if it's quite alright
I need you baby to warm the lonely night

Cuando calienta el sol

( Amor estoy solo aqui en la playa
Es el sol quien que me acompana
Y me quema, y me quema, y me quema.)

Cuando calienta el sol
aqui en la playa
siento tu cuerpo vibrar
cerca de mi.

Es tu palpitar, es tu cara
es tu pelo, son tus besos,
me estremezco. O!

Cuando calienta el sol
aqui en la playa
siento tu cuerpo vibrar
cerca de mi.

Es tu palpitar, tu recuerdo
mi locura, mi delirio,
me estremezco. O!

Cuando calienta el sol

Es tu palpitar, es tu pelo,
es tu cara, son tus besos,
me estremezco. O!

Cuando calienta el sol

Days Of Pearly Spencer

A tenement, a dirty street
Walked and worn by shoeless feet
Inside it's long and so complete
Watched by a shivering sun

Old eyes in a small child's face
Watching as the shadows race
Through walls and cracks and leave no trace
And daylight's brightness shuns

The days of Pearly Spencer
Ahh Ahh
The race is almost run

Nose pressed hard on frosted glass
Gazing as the swollen mass
On concrete fields where grows no grass
Stumbles blindly on

Iron trees smother the air
But withering they stand and stare
Through eyes that neither know nor care
Where the grass is gone

The days of Pearly Spencer
Ahh Ahh
The race is almost run

Pearly where's your milk white skin
What's that stubble on your chin
It's buried in the rot-gut gin
You played and lost not won

You played a house that can't be beat
Now look your head's bowed in defeat
You walked too far along the street
Where only rats can run

The days of Pearly Spencer
Ahh Ahh
The race is almost run
The days of Pearly Spencer
Ahh Ahh
The race is almost run

Everybody's Talkin'

Everybody's talkin' at me
I don't hear a word their sayin'
Only the echos of my mind
People stop and stare
I can't see their faces
Only the shadows of their eyes

I'm goin' where the sun keeps shinin'
Through the pourin' rain
Goin' where the weather suits my clothes
Bankin' off of the northeast winds
Sailin' on summer breeze
And skippin' over the ocean like a stone
I'm goin' where the sun keeps shinin'
Through the pourin' rain
Goin' where the weather suits my clothes
Bankin' off of the northeast winds
Sailin' on summer breeze
And skippin' over the ocean like a stone

Everybody's talkin' at me
Can't hear a word their sayin'
Only the echos of my mind
I won't let you leave my love behind
No I won't let you leave
I won't let you leave my love behind

For Your Love
Larry Graham
FIRED UP release in Japan 1981

You opend my heart and set it on fire
I feel you all around me
You satisfy every secret desire
You're keepin' me surrounded
And I'm gonna hold you
You're my inspiration
Oh,oh ten thousand soldiers
Could never keep me away

For your love, I've been burnin', burnin'
For your love, I'd do anything
For your love, I've been burnin', burnin'
For your love, I'd do anything

And even when dark clouds gather above
I know you'll hold a light out
When everyone else has run out of love
You'll still be on my side
You know I'm gonna hold you
'Cause you're my inspiration
Oh,oh ten thousand soldiers
Could never keep me away

For your love, I've been burnin', burnin'
For your love, I'd do anything
For your love, I've been burnin', burnin'
For your love, I'd do anything

Oh,oh I'm gonna hold you
'Cause you're my inspiration
Oh,oh ten thousand soldiers
Could never keep me away

For your love, I've been burnin', burnin'

From The Mountain
The Stylistics

It was midnight on the mountain
It was stormy
It was cold inside the cave
l was hiding from the world
and l was lonely
And afraid,and afraid

There was a thunder on the mountain
There was lighting
from the angry skies above
Just as it the Lord was saying to the people
Where is love,where is love

From the mountain,from the mountain
He was asking“Where is love ?
What has happened to my children?
Have they turned away from me ?"

From the mountain,from the mountain
He was asking“Where is love?
Why is brother killl in brother?
That was never meant to be !

You have poisoned ev'ry river ev'ry tree
I see a land of hunger
VVhere once the earth was green !"

It was mornlng on the mountain
He said“Now the time had come for us to Part,
You must go down from the mountain
Tell the people,they broke my heart"

Gentle on my mind

It's knowin' that your door is always open
And your path is free to walk
That makes me tend to leave my sleepin' bag
Rolled up and stashed behind your couch
And it's knowin' I'm not shackled
By forgotten words and bonds
And the ink stains that have dried upon some line
That keeps you in the back roads
By the rivers of my memory
That keeps you ever gentle on my mind

It's not clingin' to the rocks and ivy
Planted on their columns now that bind me
Or something that somebody said because
They thought we fit together walkin'
It's just knowing that the world
Will not be cursing or forgiving
When I walk along some railroad track and find
That you're movin' on the back roads
By the rivers of my memory
And for hours you're just gentle on my mind

Though the wheat fields and the clothes lines
And the junkyards and the highways come between us
And some other woman's cryin' to her mother
'cause she turned and I was gone
I still might run in silence
Tears of joy might stain my face
And the summer sun might burn me till I'm blind
But not to where I cannot see
You walkin' on the back roads
By the rivers flowin' gentle on my mind

I dip my cup of soup back from a gurglin' cracklin' cauldron
In some train yard
My beard a rustlin' coal pile
And a dirty hat pulled low across my face
Through cupped hands 'round a tin can
I pretend to hold you to my breast and find
That you're waitin' from the back roads
By the rivers of my memory
Ever smilin', ever gentle on my mind

Gilligan's Island Theme Season 2

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale
A tale of a fateful trip
That started from this tropic port
Aboard this tiny ship.

The mate was a mighty sailing man,
The Skipper brave and sure.
Five passengers set sail that day
For a three hour tour.a three hour tour.

The weather started getting rough,
The tiny ship was tossed,
If not for the courage of the fearless crew
The Minnow would be lost.the Minnow would be lost.

The ship's aground on the shore of this
Uncharted desert isle,
With Gilligan, the Skipper too, the millionaire, and his wife,
The movie star, the Professor and Mary Ann,
Here on Gilligan's Isle.

Gilligan's Island   Ending

Now this is the tale of our castaways,
They're here for a long, long time.
They'll have to make the best of it -
It's an uphill climb.

The first mate, and his skipper, too
will do their very best
to make the others comfortable
in their tropic island nest.

No phone! No light! No motorcar!
Not a single luxury.
Like Robinson Ca-rusoe,
It's primitive as can be.

So join us here each week, my friends,
You're sure to get a smile
From seven stranded castaways
Here on Gilligan's Isle

Hasta Manana

Where is the spring and the summer
That once was yours and mine?
Where did it go?
I just don't know
But still my love for you will live forever

Hasta Manana 'til we meet again
Don't know where, don't know when
Darling, our love was much too strong to die
We'll find a way to face a new tomorrow
Hasta Manana, say we'll meet again
I can't do without you
Time to forget, send me a letter
Say you forgive, the sooner the better
Hasta Manana, baby, Hasta Manana, until then

Where is the dream we were dreaming
And all the nights we shared
Where did they go?
I just don't know
And I can't tell you just how much I miss you

Hasta Manana 'til we meet again
Don't know where, don't know when
Darling, our love was much too strong to die
We'll find a way to face a new tomorrow
Hasta Manana, say we'll meet again

Time to forget, send me a letter
Say you forgive, the sooner the better

Il Treno Blu (Orient Express)
Matia Bazar

Parigi stasera é più grande che mai
e gli occhi d'Europa puntati su lei
L'autunno é diverso a la gare de Lyon
c´é nebbia c´é ansia
c´é chi parte chi non

Voci nel vento
profumi di moda
e l'Espresso d'Oriente
per mano ci guiderá
nel fuoco tra baviere di seta
e frontiere di ferrea etá

Storie d'amore e diplomazia
misteri di velluto, va ferrovia!
facce losche sui tetti alla barriera di Ungheria
dal treno in corsa un'uomo salta giù
e scappa via

Avventurieri con l'acqua alla gola
e l'Espresso d'Oriente
con forza ci porterá
all'alba sulla bianca moschea
dal nero della sua riva

Quarto di luna
una stella un mantello
e l'Espresso d'Oriente
con nostalgia se ne va....

Diras
Tous les mots que je veux entendre
Murmurer par toi

Je fonde l'espoir que la robe que j'ai voulue
Et que j'ai cousue
Point par point
Sera chiffonne'e
Et les cheveux que j'ai coiffe's
De'coiffe's
Par tes mains
Quand la nuit refermait ses ailes
J'ai souvent re^ve'
Re^ve'
Que dans la soie et la dentelle
Un soir je serai la plus belle
La plus belle pour aller danser

Tu peux me donner le souffle qui manque a` ma vie
Dans un premier cri
De bonheur
Si tu veux ce soir cueillir le printemps de mes jours
Et l'amour en mon coeur
Pour connai^tre la joie nouvelle
Du premier baiser
Je sais
Qu'au seuil des amours e'ternelles
Il faut que je sois la plus belle
La plus belle pour aller danser

La violetera

Como aves precursoras de primavera
En Madrid aparecen las violeteras
Que pregonando parecen golondrinas
Que van piando, que van piando

Llelo usted senorito
que no vale mas que un real
copreme usted este ramito
copreme usted este ramito
pa' lucirlo en el ojal.

Son sus ojos alegres su faz risuena,
lo que se dice un tipo de madrilena,
neta y castiza, que si entorna los ojos
te cauteriza, te cauteriza.

Llelo usted senorito
que no vale mas que un real,
copreme usted este ramito
copreme usted este ramito
pa' lucirlo en ojal.

Llelo usted senorito

Love Is A Wonderful Thing

There will never be a better day darling
For me and you

Let's give life all the meaning it's supposed to bring
Oh heavenly father, for me there ain't
no other strength, but you

There will never be a better day darling

Only Yesterday

After long enough of being alone
Everyone must face their share of loneliness
In my own time nobody knew
The pain I was goin' through
And waitin' was all my heart could do

Hope was all I had until you came
Maybe you can't see how much you mean to me
You were the dawn breaking the night
The promise of morning light
Filing the world surrounding me
When I hold you

(*) Baby, Baby
Feels like maybe things will be all right
Baby, Baby
Your love's made me
Free as a song singin' forever

(**) Only yesterday when I was sad
And I was lonely
You showed me the way to leave
The past and all its tears behind me
Tomorrow may be even brighter than today
Since I threw my sadness away

Only Yesterday

I have found my home here in your arms
Nowhere else on earth I'd really rather be
Life waits for us
Share it with me
The best is about to be
So much is left for us to see
When I hold you

Repeat (*)
Repeat (**) twice

Quando M'innamoro
(Pace - Panzeri) Anna Identici

Dicono che non so trovare un fiore
e che non ho mai niente da regalare
dicono che c'e un chiodo dentro il mio cuore
e che per questo non puo palpitare
ma il mio ragazzo sa che non e vero
il mio ragazzo sa che quando
quando m'innamoro
io do tutto il bene
a chi e innamorato di me
e non c'e nessuno
che mi puo cambiare
che mi puo staccare da lui.
quando m'innamoro
io do tutto il bene
a chi e innamorato di me
e non c'e nessuno
che mi puo cambiare
che mi puo staccare da lui.

E'dall'amore che nasce la vita
e la mia vita io la do all'amore
a chi mi dice: "Vivi un altro giorno."
io gli rispondo che, che quando

quando m'innamoro
io do tutto il bene
a chi e innamorato di me
e non c'e nessuno
che mi puo cambiare
che mi puo staccare da lui
quando m'innamoro
io do tutto il bene
a chi e innamorato di me
e non c'e nessuno

Que Sera, Sera

When I was just a little girl
I asked my mother, what will I be
Will I be pretty, will I be rich
Here's what she said to me.

Que Sera, Sera,

The future's not ours, to see
Que Sera, Sera
What will be, will be.
When I grew up and fell in love
I asked my sweetheart what lies ahead
Will we have rainbows, day after day

You are all things that life should be
It amazes me the joy that you bring

Without You
Engelbert Humperdinck

I’ve had time to think it over
I’ve had time to sort it out
What we said to one another
What that night was all about
And I still can’t understand it
What we put each other through
The night I thought that leaving was the only thing to do

Now I can’t keep the wanting out of my arms
And I can’t keep the cold from coming through
And I can’t find the natural ways of my life without you
without you

I don’t want to live without you
I don’t want to spend my time
Looking in the beds of strangers
For a little piece of mine
What I’m asking is to come back
To the life I had with you
Cause to live with you and love you is the only thing to do

Cause I can’t keep the wanting out of my arms
And I can’t keep the cold from coming through
And I can’t find the natural ways of my life without you
without you

No, I can’t keep the wanting out of my arms
And I can’t keep the cold from coming through
And I can’t find the natural ways of my life without you
without you

No, I can’t keep that wanting out of my arms
And I can’t keep the cold from coming through…

You Can Have Me Any Time
 (B. Scaggs / D. Foster)

Here we are
In a room full of strangers
And an open door

Here we are
Away from all dangers
But that open door
Is calling out again
Acting like a friend
Who wants to know
If you might come away
I wonder what you'll say
You wander out again

On wings of the night
Once again you'll take flight
And I don't hear your voice any more
Tonight's dream will end
But I'll stay long after then
And you can have me any time

Here we are
Alone in the shadows
Of our lonely room

Here we are
We all have those very lonely rooms
Like our faithless child
Frightened of the wild
He runs and hides
To keep from being still
We run around until
We lose ourselves again

On wings of the night
Once again you'll take flight
And I don't hear your voice any more
Tonight's dream will end
But I'll stay long after then
And you can have me any time

Tonight's dream will end
But I'll stay long after then
And you can have me any time
