Les paroles


1. A mess of blues

I just got your letter baby, too bad you can't come home
I swear I'm going crazy, sitting here all alone
Since you gone I got a mess of the blues

Whoops there goes a tear drop, a-rolling down my face
And if you cry when you're alone it's surely no disgrace

I ain't slept a wink since Sunday, I can't eat a thing all day
And every day is just Blue Monday since you've been away
Since you gone I got a mess of the blues

Whoops there goes a tear drop, a rolling down my face
And if you cry when you're alone it's surely no disgrace

I gotta get myself together before I lose my mind
I'm gonna catch-a the next train going, and leave my blues behind
Since you gone I got a mess of the blues

I gotta get myself together before I lose my mind
I'm gonna catch-a the next train going, and leave my blues behind
Since you gone I got a mess of the blues
Since you gone I got a mess of the blues
Since you gone I got a mess of the blues

2. Ol' rag blues

When you look into a mirror tell me what do you see?
Is it Pictures of Lily crying, you know what I mean?
I've been livin' high, I've been livin' low
Like a bird in the sky this is the way to go

What you gonna do with those faded blues you wear?
What you gonna do with those ol' rag blues?
What you gonna do with those ol' blue jeans you wear?
Ol' rag blues, ol' rag blues, ol' rag blues

Did you think it was forever? Well now you know
The summer sun keeps shining, shine through the blue
I've been livin' high, I've been livin' low
Never give up tryin', oh no, no, no

What you gonna do with those faded blues you wear?
What you gonna do with those ol' rag blues?
What you gonna do with those ol' blue jeans you wear?
Ol' rag blues, ol' rag blues, ol' rag blues

I can hear you callin' somewhere in the blue
Can you hear me callin' for you? for you?

What you gonna do with those ol' blue jeans you wear?
Ol' rag blues, ol' rag blues, ol' rag blues

3. Can't be done

Everywhere I dare to go, the corners that I turn
I'm sure to see a face I know, someone who doesn't earn
That's all I ever get to hear is other people's woe
Let's climb into a rocket and we'll press the one and go
Although they say it can't be done
Don't say to me it can't be done

Looking how we used to be, the way and what we wore
The things we hoped the future held but always wanted more
If God had meant for man to fly he would have given wings
He didn't, so we have to make the best of everything
So let's not say it can't be done
Although they say it can't be done

Don't say to me everybody says it can't be done
That there ain't no chance at all
Anybody can be right or wrong
When there ain't no chance at all

Half the world is in a mess, the other half as well
I've got a feelin' strange to me I wish that I could tell
It won't be long before we push the button I am sure
So throw away the key when I am locked behind the door
You're telling me it can't be done
Stop telling me it can't be done

Don't say to me everybody says it can't be done
That there ain't no chance at all
Anybody can be right or wrong
When there ain't no chance at all

Half the world is in a mess, the other half as well
I've got a feelin' strange to me I wish that I could tell
It won't be long before we push the button I am sure
So throw away the key when I am locked behind the door
You're telling me it can't be done
Stop telling me it can't be done
Let's pray and pray it can be done
Just pray and pray it can be done
It can be done
It can be done
It can be done

4. Too close to the ground

When the light hits your eyes in the morning
And the fight to survive is braking you down
You see a chance for an answer to fill the empty spaces
But you still don't know what to do
You're too close to the ground

When the night closes in like an old friend
And the last of your pills is taking you down
You know the doctor's prescription ain't working like it used
to
But you still don't know what to do
You're too close to the ground
Still going down

All your life you were waiting
Just to pass up the dream and leave my town
You blew your chance for an answer to fill the empty spaces
Oh, you just don't know what to do
You're too close to the ground
Too close to the ground
Still going down

5. No contract

I don't want your lovin' baby
I won't give you mine
I need more than ifs and maybes
To help me pass the time

Give me private lessons
Teach me all you can
Play me silent movies
But remember babe
Oh remember babe
We don't got no contract

I won't buy your lying baby
You won't buy my love
Don't you think no crying baby
I won't take no bluff

Give me private lessons
Teach me all you can
Play me silent movies
But remember babe
Oh remember babe
We don't got no contract

Give me private lessons
Teach me all you can
Play me silent movies
But remember babe
Oh remember babe
We don't got no contract

6. Win or lose

Win or lose, lose or win
I ain't ever doing that again
Keeping out and never creeping in
No I ain't ever doing that again
I know I've done some silly things
But I ain't ever doing that again
No I ain't ever doing that again

Sailed away to foreign place
Not so far or hard to trace
I didn't wanna know
Knowing I had to go
Left my place of residence
Down the drive and past the fence
I'm coming back again
Wish I could tell you when
I never been away so long before
Surley now I must be sure

Win or lose, lose or win
I ain't ever doing that again
Keeping out and never creeping in
No I ain't ever doing that again
I know I've done some silly things
But I ain't ever doing that again
No I ain't ever doing that again

Got to one place really fine
Getting out to quite a time
A little trouble there
I didn't seem very fair
Tried to go we had a fight
So they made us stay the night
And it was harassing
Very embarrassing
That's another place that I have seen
A place I wish I haven't been

Win or lose, lose or win
I ain't ever doing that again
Keeping out and never creeping in
No I ain't ever doing that again
I know I've done some silly things
But I ain't ever doing that again
No I ain't ever doing that again
I ain't ever doing that again
No I ain't ever doing that again

7. Marguerita time

Captured my heart
Captured my memory
Captured a time for me
I could see
A time for me
Is gonna be

Deep in my heart
Deep in my memory
Deep in a part of me
Heart of me
Meant to be history
Could it be that I'm still wondering

I never knew what had happened to me
I didn't think it was true
That I could be just like anyone else
I'll take my chance with you

Picture a dream
Picture a fantasy
Picture a mood of me
Mystery you and me a mystery

Lost in a dream
Lost in a fantasy
Lost in what seemed to be
Dreams to be
Seemed to be
Had to be
Couldn't find no other reason

I never knew what had happened to me
I didn't think it was true
That I could be just like anyone else
I'll take my chance with you

Lets have a drink
It's Marguerita time
It's Marguerita time
After nine
Summer time
Any time
You'll still always find me wondering

I never knew what had happened to me
I didn't think it was true
That I could be just like anyone else
I'll take my chance with you

8. Your kind of love

Love makes the world go round
Each and every day
Your kind of loving gives me something
I'm going round again
Love makes the world go round
And now I know for sure
You are something special to me
I want nothing more, than

Your kind of love, your kind of love
Your kind of love, your kind of love
Makes the world go round

Your kind of love
Could never fade away
Something for nothing, your kind of loving
What more can I say
You make the world go round
You are the night and day
Everybody needs somebody
But I'm the only one, with

Your kind of love, your kind of love
Can't turn away your kind of love
Makes the world go round
Makes the world go round
Your kind of love
Makes the world go round

Love makes the world go round
Each and every day
Your kind of loving gives me something
I'm going round again, with

Your kind of love, your kind of love
Your kind of love, your kind of love
Makes the world go round
Makes the world go round
Your kind of love
Makes the world go round

Your kind of love, your kind of love
Your kind of love makes the world go round
What kind of love What kind of love
What kind of love Your kind of love

9. Stay the night

Has anybody here seen my way to heaven
Can anybody care enough for them to tell
It's taken me forever but finally you came
I had to look no further than any other man

Don't look back over your shoulder
'cos the love that you found
That you found darling, yeah
Use it and stay the night
All you got to do is stay the night
All you got to do is stay the night
All you got to do is stay the night

Whatever is the matter, d'you think you've had enough
So hang on that bit longer, with me it won't be tough
And don't you know I'm waiting, I have been for so long
So if you're feeling better we're off and we'll be gone

Don't look back over your shoulder
'cos the love that you found
That you found darling, yeah
Use it and stay the night
All you got to do is stay the night
All you got to do is stay the night
All you got to do is stay the night

10. Going down town tonight

I'm going down town tonight, I'm gonna find myself a dream
I'm gonna dress up right, and be the best they've ever seen
You can tell from their eyes, you can tell from their eyes
That they're never impressed, that they're never impressed
From the way they walk round, from the way they walk round
They are used to the best, they are used to the best

Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
Going down town tonight, going down town tonight

Why let them break you in with self-sophisticated praise
'cos when the cards are low you see the smile come on their face
If you speak the right words, if you speak the right words
They will hear what you say, they will hear what you say
They will take your attention, just take your attention
And then turn away, and then turn away

Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
Going down town tonight, going down town tonight

Just one thing before you go my ladies of the night
Just one thing I have to say I've got you, and you're
Confident and debonair you move between the stars
Hungry for those staring eyes that fill your waking hours

Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
Going down town tonight, going down town tonight

Your face is all run dry with all the echoes of the night
And so I'm home alone, I wash my head and hold on tight
If you speak the right words, if you speak the right words
They will hear what you say, they will hear what you say
They will take your attention, just take your attention
And then turn away, and then turn away

Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
