  1. My Brother, My Brother

    My Brother, My Brother

    You are my brother, you are my family
    And it seems like only yesterday, we were running wild and free
    Down the corner buying candy, or messin’ ’round in the neighborhood
    Hanging out with you night and day, it was good, so good

    Lately I’ve heard you’ve got the weight of the world on your shoulder
    Times have been rough, I can’t turn the other way

    My brother, my brother, whatcha gonna do?
    My brother, my brother, here to help you
    Tell me your sorrows, tell me your fears
    My brother, my brother, I’ll always be here

    I know that we are different, and we’ve gone our separate way
    But we’ve got to learn to accept each other, for who we are today
    I know it won’t be easy, but we both have got to try
    To hold onto each other, until the day we die

    Nobody knows you quite the way that I do
    And if you’re in trouble, come to me, come to me

    My brother, my brother, whatcha gonna do?
    My brother, my brother, here to help you
    Tell me your sorrows, tell me your fears
    My brother, my brother, I’ll always be here

    Whatcha gonna do?
    I’m here to help you
    Tell me

    We got the same blood running through our veins, my brother
    Father is the Heaven, mother is the grave
    We gotta look out for each other, my brother
    Yeah, that’s what we gotta do

    Tell me
    My brother, my brother, whatcha gonna do?
    My brother, my brother, here to help you
    Tell me your sorrows, tell me your fears
    My brother, my brother, I’ll always be here

    My brother, my brother, whatcha gonna do?
    My brother, my brother, here to help you
    Tell me your sorrows, tell me your fears
    My brother, my brother, I’ll always be here

    My brother, my brother, whatcha gonna do?
    My brother, my brother, here to help you
    Tell me your sorrows, tell me your fears
    My brother, my brother, I’ll always be here

  2. Don’t Take Away My Heaven

    Don’t Take Away My Heaven

    Oh, baby, I found heaven when I found you
    And this heaven is somethin’ I don’t wanna lose
    I only know that if you ever said goodbye, I couldn’t stand the pain
    These eyes would cry, cry, cry like the rain

    And the sun would have nowhere to shine
    And the stars would all fall from the sky
    Baby, please
    Don’t take away my heaven, oh, no

    ‘Cause this world would stop turnin’, I know
    And I’d lose my whole world if you go
    Baby, don’t
    Don’t take away my heaven, oh, no

    Oh, baby, I saw forever when I saw you
    And if you left me, I can’t imagine what I’d do
    Now that I’ve gone and built my world around your love, I couldn’t let you go
    Don’t ever say goodbye, no, don’t, don’t, don’t ever go

    ‘Cause the sun would have nowhere to shine
    And the stars would all fall from the sky
    Baby, please
    Don’t take away my heaven, oh, no

    ‘Cause this world would stop turnin’, I know (Yes, I know)
    And I’d lose my whole world if you go (If you go)
    Baby, please
    Don’t take away my heaven, oh, no

    ‘Cause you might as well take my life from me
    What good would a life without you be anyway (Anyway)
    If you go away

    Well, the sun would have nowhere to shine
    And the stars would all fall from the sky (From the sky)
    Baby, please
    Don’t take away my heaven, oh, no

    ‘Cause this world would stop turnin’, I know (Yes, I know)
    And I’d lose my whole world if you go (If you go)
    Baby, don’t, no
    Don’t take away my heaven, oh, no

    Don’t take away my heaven, don’t take away your love
    Don’t take away my world ’cause baby, I need your touch
    Baby, don’t
    Don’t take away my heaven, oh, no

    Please don’t take away my heaven
    Please
    Baby, don’t, oh, no
    Don’t take away my heaven, oh…

    Don’t take away my heaven, don’t take away your love
    Don’t take away my world ’cause baby, I need your touch
    Baby, don’t, oh
    Don’t take away my heaven, oh, no

  3. I Owe You One

    I Owe You One

    There’s a chill in the evening air
    Carries me back to some place where
    I thought I’d lost my way forever
    Every dream and every plan
    Every last chance slipped through my hand
    And you smiled at me and it was over
    Holding you tonight
    Hold on tight
    I try to say it right
    And I guess sometimes the words don’t come
    And I wish I told you how you changed my life
    And saved me with your love
    I hope when all is said and done
    You know I owe you one
    Walk me down those streets again
    Stop me right at the moment when
    You stood there talking to a stranger
    Tell me how you looked at me
    And knew the very best that I could be
    How did you see this happy ending

    Standing by your side
    I’m still surprised
    I try to say it right
    But I guess sometimes the words don’t come
    And I wish I’d told you how you changed my life
    And saved me with your love
    I hope when all is said and done
    You know I owe you one
    One for life and one for love
    And all you’ve given me
    For the dreams you made me dream again
    And all that we can be
    Holding you tonight, holding you tonight
    Hold on tight
    I try to say it right
    I guess sometimes the words don’t come
    And I wish I’d told you how you changed my life
    And saved me with your love
    I hope when all is said and done
    You know I owe you one

  4. Don’t Fall Apart on Me Tonight

    Don’t Fall Apart on Me Tonight

    Just a minute ‘fore you leave girl
    Just a minute ‘fore you touch the door
    What is it that you’re trying to achieve girl
    Do you think we can talk about it some more
    You know the streets are filled with vipers
    Who’ve lost all ray of hope
    You know it ain’t even safe no more
    In the palace of the pope

    Don’t fall apart on me tonight
    I just don’t think that I could handle it
    Don’t fall apart on me tonight
    Yesterday is just a memory
    Tomorrow’s never what it’s suppose to be
    And I need you

    Come over here from over there girl
    Sit down here you can have my chair
    I can’t see you going anywhere girl
    The only place open is a thousand miles away
    And I can’t take you there

    Oh, I wish I’d a been a doctor
    Maybe I’d a saved some lives that’ve been lost
    Maybe I’d a done some good in this world
    Instead of burning every bridge I crossed

    Don’t fall apart on me tonight
    I just don’t think that I could handle it
    Don’t fall apart on me tonight
    Yesterday is just a memory
    Tomorrow’s never what it’s suppose to be
    And I need you

    Oh, I wish I’d a been a doctor
    Maybe I’d a saved some lives that’ve been lost
    Maybe I’d a done some good in this world

    I just don’t think that I could handle it
    Don’t fall apart on me tonight
    Yesterday is just a memory
    Tomorrow’s never what it’s suppose to be
    And I need you

    Don’t fall apart on me tonight
    I just don’t think that I could handle it

    Don’t fall apart on me tonight

  5. Betcha by Golly, Wow

    Betcha by Golly, Wow

    There’s a spark of magic in your eyes
    Candyland appears each time you smile

    But they come true, when I’m near you

    You’re a genie in disguise
    Full of wonder and surprise, and

  6. Song of Bernadette

    Song of Bernadette

    There was a child named Bernadette
    I heard the story, long ago
    She saw the queen of heaven once
    And kept the vision in her soul

    No one believed what she had seen
    No one believed what she heard
    But there were sorrows to be healed
    And mercy, mercy in this world

    So many hearts I find
    Broken like yours and mine
    Torn by what we’ve done and can’t undo
    I just want to hold you
    Won’t you let me hold you?
    Like Bernadette would do

    We’ve been around we fall, we fly
    We mostly fall, we mostly run
    And every no and then, we try
    To mend the damage that we’ve done

    Tonight, tonight I cannot rest
    I’ve got this joy inside breast
    To think that I did not forget
    That child, that song of Bernadette

    So many hearts I find
    Broken like yours and mine
    Torn by what we’ve done and can’t undo
    I just want to hold you
    Come on let me hold you?
    Like Bernadette would do

    I just want to hold you
    Won’t you let me hold you?
    Like Bernadette would do

  7. You Never Can Tell

    You Never Can Tell

    It was a teenage wedding, and the old folks wished them well
    You could see that pierre did truly love the mademoiselle
    And now the young monsieur and madame have rung the chapel bell,
    “c’est la vie”, say the old folks, it go to show you never can tell

    They furnished off an apartment with a two room roebuck sale
    The coolerator was crammed with tv dinners and ginger ale,
    But when pierre found work, the little money comin’ worked out well
    “c’est la vie”, say the old folks, it go to show you never can tell

    They had a hi-fi phono, boy, did they let it blast
    Seven hundred little records, all rock, and rhythm and jazz
    But when the sun went down, the rapid tempo of the music fell
    “c’est la vie”, say the old folks, it go to show you never can tell

    They bought a souped-up jitney, was a cherry red ’53,
    Drove down to new orleans to celebrate the anniversary
    It was there where pierre was married to the lovely mademoiselle
    “c’est la vie”, say the old folks, it go to show you never can tell

    They had a teenage wedding, and the old folks wished them well
    You could see that pierre did truly love the mademoiselle
    And now the young monsieur and madame have rung the chapel bell,
    “c’est la vie”, say the old folks, it go to show you never can tell
    “c’est la vie”, say the old folks, it go to show you never can tell
    “c’est la vie”, say the old folks, it go to show you never can tell

  8. The Bells

    The Bells

    I’ll never hear the bells if you leave me
    I’ll never hear the bells
    I’ll never hear the bells if you leave me
    I’ll never hear the bells

    Do you hear what I hear
    Your lips are kissing mine
    Can you hear the bells darling
    Can you hear them when I’m kissing you

    What do I have to do to make you feel the tingling too

    Can you hear the bells darling
    Can you hear them when I’m kissing you

    Oh yeah
    Oh, I hear the bells, ringing in my ear
    Tell me do you love me, do you love me, do you love me, do you love me like I love you

    Oh, it’s one thing that I want you to remember
    If you ever leave me I believe I’ll go insane
    And I’ll never hear the bells again
    No, I’ll never hear the bells again
    No, I’ll never hear the bells again

  9. These Foolish Things

    These Foolish Things

    A cigarette that bears a lipsticks traces
    An airline ticket to romantic places
    And still my heart has wings
    These foolish things remind me of you

    A tinkling piano in the next apartment
    Those stumbling words that told you what my heart meant
    A fairground painted swing
    These foolish things remind me of you

    You came, you saw, you conquered me
    When you did that to me, I knew somehow this had to be
    The winds of march that make my heart a dancer
    A telephone that rings, but who’s to answer
    How the ghost of you clings
    These foolish things remind me of you

    How strange, how sweet, to find you still
    These things are dear to me, they seem to bring you near to me
    The sigh of midnight trains in empty stations,
    Silk stockings thrown aside, dance invitations
    Oh, how the ghost of you clings
    These foolish things remind me of you

  10. The Roadie Song

    The Roadie Song

    You know night after night these guys are setting up, hooking up,
    Climbing past the sky. they don’t really get no praise,
    So I wrote this song in honor of them,
    ’cause without them there’d be no show.

    So get a roadie song, after all he ain’t no bum
    Give a roadie a hand, he’s really part of the band

    Get a roadie, get a roadie, get a roadie song
    Them speakers weigh a ton
    His work is never done
    So get a roadie, get a roadie, get a roadie song

    Got a mighty long ways to travel
    He’s gotta cover many miles of gravel
    He’s gotta long long ways to go
    And if he don’t make it, there ain’t gonna be no show

    So give the roadie, give the roadie, give the roadie song
    He climbed to kingdom come
    He’s up to see the sun
    Get a roadie, get a roadie, get a roadie song

    He’s got a mighty long ways to travel
    He’s gotta cover many miles of gravel
    He’s gotta long long ways to go
    And if he don’t make it, there ain’t gonna be no show

    Get a roadie, get a roadie, get a roadie song, after all he ain’t no bum
    And get a roadie a hand, he’s really part of the band

    Give the roadie, give the roadie, give the roadie, give the roadie, give a roadie song

  11. Ain’t No Way

    Ain’t No Way

    Ain’t no way for me to love you if you won’t let me
    It ain’t no way for me to give you all you need
    If you won’t let me give all of me

    I know that a mans duty is to have and love a woman
    And that’s the way it was planned
    Oh but how can I, how can I, how can I give you all the things I can
    If you’re tying both of my hands

    It ain’t no way, it ain’t no way, just ain’t no way, ain’t no way baby

    It ain’t no way for me to love you if you won’t let me

    Stop trying to be someone you’re not
    The hard cold truth is, woman, you paid too much for what you got
    And if you need me, baby, say, say you do,
    Baby, I, baby, baby, don’t you know that I need you

    It ain’t no way
    I tell you that it ain’t no way, it ain’t no way, it ain’t no way baby, baby, baby, baby
    Just ain’t no way, sure ain’t no way
    It ain’t no way for me to love you if you won’t let me

  12. The Grand Tour

    The Grand Tour

    Step right up come on in
    If you’d like to take the grand tour
    Of the lonely house that once was
    Home sweet home

    I have nothing here to sell you
    Just some things that I will tell you
    Some things I know will chill you
    To the bone

    Over there sits the chair
    Where she’d bring the paper to me
    Sit down on my knee and whisper
    Oh, I love you

    But now she’s gone forever
    And this old house it will never
    Be the same without the love
    That we once knew

    Straight ahead that’s the bed
    Where we’d lie in love together
    And Lord knows we had
    A good thing going here

    See her picture on the table
    Don’t it look like she’d be able
    Just to touch me and say
    Good mornin’ dear

    There’s her rings all her things
    And her clothes are in the closet
    Where she left them when
    She tore my world apart

    As you leave you’ll see the nursery
    Oh, she left me without mercy
    Takin’ nothin’ but our baby
    And my heart

    Step right up come on in
    Come on in

  13. The Lord’s Prayer

    The Lord’s Prayer

    Our father
    Which art in heaven.
    Hollowed would be thy name
    Thy kingdom come,
    Thy will be done.
    On earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us this day, our daily bread

    And forgive our debts
    As we forgive our debtors.
    Lead us not into temptation,
    But deliver us from evil.
    For thine is the kingdom,
    And the power, and the glory.
    Forever and ever. amen.
