lay, lady, lay



lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
whatever colors you have in your mind
i'll show them to you and you'll see them shine

lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile
until the break of day, let me see you make him smile
his clothes are dirty but his hands are clean
and you're the best thing that he's ever seen

stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile
why wait any longer for the world to begin
you can have your cake and eat it too
why wait any longer for the one you love
when he's standing in front of you

lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
stay, lady, stay, stay while the night is still ahead
i long to see you in the morning light
i long to reach for you in the night
stay, lady, stay, stay while the night is still ahead

forever young



may god bless and keep you always
may your wishes all come true
may you always do for others
and let others do for you
may you build a ladder to the stars
and climb on every rung
may you stay forever young
forever young, forever young
may you stay forever young

may you grow up to be righteous
may you grow up to be true
may you always know the truth
and see the lights surrounding you
may you always be courageous
stand upright and be strong
may you stay forever young
forever young, forever young
may you stay forever young

may your hands always be busy
may your feet always be swift
may you have a strong foundation
when the winds of changes shift
may your heart always be joyful
may your song always be sung
may you stay forever young
forever young, forever young
may you stay forever young

jokerman



standing on the waters casting your bread
while the eyes of the idol with the iron head are glowing
distant ships sailing into the mist
you were born with a snake in both of your fists while a hurricane was blowing
freedom just around the corner for you
but with the truth so far off, what good will it do?

jokerman dance to the nightingale tune
bird fly high by the light of the moon
oh, oh, oh, jokerman

so swiftly the sun sets in the sky
you rise up and say goodbye to no one
fools rush in where angels fear to tread
both of their futures, so full of dread, you don't show one
shedding off one more layer of skin
keeping one step ahead of the persecutor within

jokerman dance to the nightingale tune
bird fly high by the light of the moon
oh, oh, oh, jokerman

you're a man of the mountains, you can walk on the clouds
manipulator of crowds, you're a dream twister
you're going to sodom and gomorrah
but what do you care? ain't nobody there would want to marry your sister
friend to the martyr, a friend to the woman of shame
you look into the fiery furnace, see the rich man without any name

jokerman dance to the nightingale tune
bird fly high by the light of the moon
oh, oh, oh, jokerman

well, the book of leviticus and deuteronomy
the law of the jungle and the sea are your only teachers
in the smoke of the twilight on a milk-white steed
michelangelo indeed could've carved out your features
resting in the fields, far from the turbulent space
half asleep near the stars with a small dog licking your face

jokerman dance to the nightingale tune
bird fly high by the light of the moon
oh. oh. oh. jokerman

well, the rifleman's stalking the sick and the lame
preacherman seeks the same, who'll get there first is uncertain
nightsticks and water cannons, tear gas, padlocks
molotov cocktails and rocks behind every curtain
false-hearted judges dying in the webs that they spin
only a matter of time 'til night comes steppin' in

jokerman dance to the nightingale tune
bird fly high by the light of the moon
oh, oh, oh, jokerman

it's a shadowy world, skies are slippery gray
a woman just gave birth to a prince today and dressed him in scarlet
he'll put the priest in his pocket, put the blade to the heat
take the motherless children off the street
and place them at the feet of a harlot
oh, jokerman, you know what he wants
oh, jokerman, you don't show any response

jokerman dance to the nightingale tune
bird fly high by the light of the moon
oh, oh, oh, jokerman

mr. bojangles



i knew a man bojangles and he'd dance for you in worn out shoes
silver hair and ragged shirt and baggy pants, the old soft shoe
he'd jump so high, he'd jump so high, then he'd lightly touched down

i met him in a cell in new orleans i was down and out
he looked to me to be the eye of age as he spoke right out
he talked of life, he talked of life, laughed, clicked his heels and said

he said his name bojangles and he danced a lick across the cell
he grabbed his pants for a better stance, oh he jumped so high and he
clicked up his heels
he let go laugh, he let go laugh, shook back his clothes all around
mr. bojangles, mr. bojangles, dance

he danced for those at minstrel shows and county fairs throughtout the south
he spoke with tears of 15 years of how his dog and him travelled about
the dog up and died, he up and died
after 20 years he still grieves

he said "i dance now at every chance at honky-tonks for drinks and tips
but most the time i spends behind these county bars, 'cause your see, i drinks a bit"
he shook his head and as he shook his head, i heard someone ask him, "please" -- "please" ...
mr. bojangles, mr. bojangles -- "dance"

times they are a changin'



come gather 'round people
wherever you roam
and admit that the waters
around you have grown
and accept it that soon
you'll be drenched to the bone
if your time to you
is worth savin
then you better start swimmin
or you'll sink like a stone
for the times they are a-changin

come writers and critics
who prophesize with your pen
and keep your eyes wide
the chance won't come again
and don't speak too soon
for the wheel's still in spin
and there's no tellin' who
that it's namin
for the loser now
will be later to win
for the times they are a-changin

come senators, congressmen
please heed the call
don't stand in the doorway
don't block up the hall
for he that gets hurt
will be he who has stalled
there's a battle outside
and it is ragin
it'll soon shake your windows
and rattle your walls
for the times they are a-changin

come mothers and fathers
throughout the land
and don't criticize
what you can't understand
your sons and your daughters
are beyond your command
your old road is
rapidly agin
please get out of the new one
if you can't lend your hand
for the times they are a-changin

the line it is drawn
the curse it is cast
the slow one now
will later be fast
as the present now
will later be past
the order is
rapidly fadin
and the first one now
will later be last
for the times they are a-changin

someday baby

i don't care what you do
i don't care what you say
i don't care where you go
or how long you stay

someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more

well you take my money
and you turn it out
you fill me up
with nothin' but self-doubt

someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more

when i was young
drivin' was my crave
you drive me so hard
almost to the grave

someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more

i'm so hard pressed
my mind tied up in knots
i keep recyclin
the same old thoughts

someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more

so many good things in life
that i overlooked
i don't know what to do now
baby, you got me so hooked

someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more

well, i don't want to brag
i'm gonna ring your neck
when all else fails
i'll make it a matter of self-respect

someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more

you can take your clothes
put 'em in a sack
you goin' down the road,
baby and you can't come back

someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more

i tried to be friendly
i tried to be kind
i'm gonna drive you from your home
just like i was driven from mine

someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more

living this way
ain't a natural thing to do
why was i born
to love you?

someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more

quinn the eskimo (the mighty quinn)

ev'rybody's building the big ships and the boats
some are building monuments
others, jotting down notes
ev'rybody's in despair
ev'ry girl and boy
but when quinn the eskimo gets here
ev'rybody's jump for joy
come all without, come all within
you'll not see nothing like the mighty quinn

i like to do just like the rest, i like my sugar sweet
but guarding fumes and making haste
it ain't my cup of meat
ev'rybody's just standing 'round 'neath the trees
feeding pigeons on a limb
but when quinn the eskimo gets here
them pigeons'll go to him
come all without, come all within
you'll not see nothing like the mighty quinn

a cat's meow and a cow's moo, i can recite 'em all
just tell me where it hurts honey
and i'll tell you who to call
nobody can get any sleep
there's someone on ev'ryone's toes
but when quinn the eskimo gets here
ev'rybody's gonna doze
come all without, come all within
you'll not see nothing like the mighty quinn
