And never once does she say
"where have you been?"





Maybe she doesn't, but I will. Along with a "Welcome Back!"

You talk like Marlene Dietrich
And you dance like Zizi Jeanmaire
Your clothes are all made by Balmain
And there`s diamonds and pearls in your hair
You live in a fancy appartment
Of the Boulevard of St. Michel
Where you keep your Rolling Stones records
And a friend of Sacha Distel
But where do you go to my lovely
When you're alone in your bed
Tell me the thoughts that surround you
I want to look inside your head

Where Do You Go To My Lovely
(by Sarstedt Peter)

A little space
A little time
See what it can do

A little faith
Peace of mind
See what passes through

The sun will shine on you again
A bell will ring inside your head
And all will be brand new

A Little Priest from Sweeney Todd

TODD: (spoken) These are desperate times,
Mrs. Lovett, and desperate measures are called for!
LOVETT: Here we are, now! Hot out of the oven!
TODD: What is that?

LOVETT:
It's priest. Have a little priest.
TODD:
Is it really good?
LOVETT:
Sir, it's too good, at least!
Then again, they don't commit sins of the flesh,
So it's pretty fresh.
TODD:
Awful lot of fat.
LOVETT:
Only where it sat.
TODD:
Haven't you got poet, or something like that?
LOVETT:
No, y'see, the trouble with poet is
'Ow do you know it's deceased?
Try the priest!

TODD: (spoken) Heavenly!
Not as hearty as bishop, perhaps,
but then again, not as bland as curate, either!

LOVETT:
And good for business, too -- always leaves you wantin' more!
Trouble is, we only get it on Sundays!

-- Stephen Sondheim

Shipped far north on a Dundee whaler,
Bonnie laddie! Hieland laddie!
Shipped far north as a whalin' sailor.
Me bonnie Hieland laddie!

Bound away to Iceland cold,
Found much ice but not much gold.

Greenland is a cold country,
Not the place for you and me.

We caught some whales an' boiled their blubber,
Oil an' fat choked every scupper.

We'll soon be homeward bound to Scotland,
Homeward bound to Bonnie Scotland.

I'll be glad when I get hame,
I'll give up this whalin' game.

Oh, Hieland Laddie went a-sailin',
Oh, Hieland Laddie went a-whalin'.

I'm sitting in the railway station.
Got a ticket for my destination.
On a tour of one-night stands my suitcase and guitar in hand.
And ev'ry stop is neatly planned for a poet and a one-man band.
Homeward bound,
I wish I was,
Homeward bound,
Home where my thought's escaping,
Home where my music's playing,
Home where my love lies waiting
Silently for me.
Ev'ry day's an endless stream
Of cigarettes and magazines.
And each town looks the same to me, the movies and the factories
And ev'ry stranger's face I see reminds me that I long to be,
Homeward bound,
I wish I was,
Homeward bound,
Home where my thought's escaping,
Home where my music's playing,
Home where my love lies waiting
Silently for me.

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


Paul Simon

Someday,
When I'm awfuly low
When the world is cold
I will feel a glow just thinking of you
And the way you look, tonight

Oh but you're Lovely
With you smile so warm
And your cheek so soft
There is nothing for me but to love you [all]
Just the way you look, tonight

With each word you tenderness grows
Tearing my fear apart
And that laugh that wrinkles your nose
Touches my foolish heart

Love me,
Never ever change
Keep that breathless charm
Won't you please arrange it
'Cause I love , you [all]
Just the way you look, tonight
Just the way you look, tonight

let me tell you...
the power of love...
make you do right... love'll make you do wrong...
make you want to dance...
love and happiness...
love and happiness...

love is... wait a minute... love is...
walkin' together...
talkin' together...
say it again...
say it together...

Love and Happiness~Al Green

Everybody's talking at me
I don't hear a word they're saying
Only the echoes of my mind

People stopping - staring
I can't see their faces
Only the shadows of their eyes

I'm going where the sun keeps shining
Thru' the pouring rain
Going where the weather suits my clothes
Backing off of the North East wind
Sailing on summer breeze
And skipping over the ocean like a stone

Everybody's Talkin' ~ Harry Nilsson

Sailing

It's not far down to paradise
At least it's not for me
And if the wind is right you can sail away
And find tranquility
The canvas can do miracles
Just you wait and see
Believe me

It's not far to never never land
No reason to pretend
And if the wind is right you can find the joy
Of innocence again
The canvas can do miracles
Just you wait and see
Believe me

Sailing
Takes me away
To where I've always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me
And soon I will be free

Fantasy
It gets the best of me
When I'm sailing
All caught up in the reverie
Every word is a symphony
Won't you believe me

It's not far back to sanity
At least it's not for me
And when the wind is right you can sail away
And find serenity
The canvas can do miracles
Just you wait and see
Believe me

-- Christopher Cross
