1. Blues and rhythm

i saw this picture in a magazine
with it's gold plated grovers
such a clean machine
so i, i did my home work
and i worked like hell
as the brown eyed handsome man said
you never can tell

i got that blues and rhythm
good enough to eat
sound and vision
hit me with the backbeat

blues and rhythm
good enough to eat
sound and vision
hit me with the backbeat
blues and rhythm
something for my soul
my decision
give me rock and give me roll

i started gigging in my early teens
sewed the red leather patches
on my filthy jeans
got my first fender tele
got my marshall stack
big head knock 'em dead
i know where it's at

i got that blues and rhythm
good enough to eat
sound and vision
hit me with the backbeat
blues and rhythm
something for my soul
my decision
give me rock and give me roll

don't anybody listen anymore
i can still hear them banging
on my bedroom door
is it too late to tell them?
will they understand?
calm down, come on round
and listen to the band

we got the blues and rhythm
good enough to eat
sound and vision
hit me with the backbeat
blues and rhythm
something for my soul
my decision
give me rock and give me roll

jailhouse rocker
make you tap your feet
classic shocker
listen to the backbeat

i got that blues and rhythm
i got that blues and rhythm
i got that blues and rhythm
we got that blues and rhythm

2. All stand up (never say never)

all stand up, let me hear you say never say never
all hands up, are you ready for the weekend are you ever
all stand up, let me hear you say never say never
all hands up, let me hear you say we're gonna get together

working all week till friday
wish i could do it my way
until when i'm living it up
i ain't giving it up
making the best of my lot
one of these days when i stop
and i'm gonna be living it up
i won't be giving it up
telling you now it's my day
oh i'm gonna do it my way

all stand up, let me hear you say never say never
all hands up, are you ready for the weekend are you ever
all stand up, let me hear you say never say never
all hands up, let me hear you say we're gonna get together

the job it just drives me crazy
guess i'm a little lazy
i don't care cos what do they know
they'll be there when i go
every day feel like screaming
nothing gonna stop me dreaming
and there's one thing sure that i know
i can't wait for the whistle to blow
telling you now it's friday
i'm gonna do it my way

all stand up, let me hear you say never say never

all stand up, let me hear you say never say never
all hands up, are you ready for the weekend are you ever
all stand up, let me hear you say never say never
all hands up, let me hear you say we're gonna get together

living and loving and learning
gotta keep the whole world turning
so come on let's give it a try
no use in wondering why
running away and hiding
taking our time and finding
if we stop then it's all gonna go
don't wait for the whistle to blow
everyday feel like screaming
nothing gonna stop me dreaming

all stand up, let me hear you say never say never
all hands up, are you ready for the weekend are you ever
all stand up, let me hear you say never say never
all hands up, let me hear you say we're gonna get together

all hands up, let me hear you say never say never
all hands up, let me hear you say never say never
all hands up, let me hear you say never say never say never say

5. Heavy traffic

everybody's been a long time talking
ain't nobody said a word that's true
ain't it time to stop this crap type talking
won't you tell us what you're gonna do

tell you what why don't we break this pattern
tell you what why don't we do some do
all together we can make it happen
untogether and we won't get through

wanna drive yeh drive
i wanna drive but i can't get no-where
heavy traffic all over this town
i wanna drive yeh drive
i wanna drive i gotta get somewhere
heavy traffic is bringing me down

every time i see the red light burning
don't it always make the air turn blue
but until we see the red light turning
there ain't nothing anyone can do

we all dream about an open highway
making dreams is all that we can do
we'd be moving on if i had my way
nothing can stop me getting back to you

wanna drive yeh drive
i wanna drive but i can't get no-where
heavy traffic all over this town
i wanna drive yeh drive
i wanna drive i gotta get somewhere
heavy traffic coming into this town

i wanna drive yeh drive
i wanna drive but i can't get no-where
heavy traffic all over this town
i wanna drive yeh drive
i wanna drive i gotta get somewhere
heavy traffic is bringing me down
heavy traffic all over this town

heavy traffic all over this town

heavy traffic coming into this town

6. Solid gold

take a ride to somewhere with me
anywhere that you want it could be
sit on back and take it all in
i know where you're going
i know where you've been
a little smile a secretive grin
one more pull and we're out there again
close your eyes and tell me you see
what you believe in is just you and me
take it or leave it but take it from me

i'm not worryin' i'm not lookin' back again
i ain't thinking it that way
no-ones tellin' you now what you gotta do
we're not listening that way
cos' it's gold solid gold
we are gold solid gold

take a trip and i'll meet you there
we'll hang out on a wing and a prayer
climb on board and put yourself in
we know where we're goin'
we know where we've been
what do we know of the dangers within

i'm not worryin' i'm not lookin' back again
i ain't thinkin' it that way
no-ones tellin' you now what you gotta do
we're not listening that way
cos' it's gold solid gold
we are gold solid gold

take a ride to somewhere with me
anywhere that you want it could be
sit on back and take it all in
i know where you go
and i know where you've been
what do we know

i ain't thinkin' it that way
no-ones tellin' you now what you gotta do
we're not listenin' that way

i'm not worryin' i'm not lookin' back again

7. Green

so then the sky turned weird
and the sun went down
but it weren't two hours 'fore it came around
it was a midnight feast
such a sheer delight
i saw the northern lights then i hit the ground

green, green, keep it clean
stick all your money up your money machine
green green perfect scene
oh it's very very nice here
but i wouldn't wanna live here

you got your blazing red
you got your frozen breath
watch the countryside just bleed to death
and then the ground turns white
and the sky turns brown
and the whole damn world looks upside down

brown brown dead end town
just like a-living in a hole in the ground
brown brown upside down
well it isn't very nice here
and i wouldn't wanna live here

green, green, keep it clean
stick all your money up your money machine
green green perfect scene
oh it's very very nice here
but i wouldn't wanna live here

8. Jam side down

what's a boy to do, when fate is cruel?
keep on keepin' on try to bend the rules
i'll do anything to find a way to your heart

i got a rabbit's foot but luck don't come
got my fingers crossed and they go numb,
i can hold my breath and wish for you
i need a miracle to make it true

life is hard, i need a remedy
for the way i feel
my bread keeps landing jam side down
say you'll be there to spread love around

i was sweet on you that's how i felt
got a butter heart, you made it melt
like a big eyed kid in a candy store
i had a little sugar now i want some more

life is hard, i need a remedy
for the way i feel
my bread keeps landing jam side down
say you'll be there to spread love around

my bread keeps landing jam side down
say you'll be there to spread love around

you are my destiny you
bring out the best in me you
you made me feel so lucky

so lucky to have you
and i need you
yeh i need you

life is hard, i need a remedy
for the way i feel
my bread keeps landing jam side down
say you'll be there to spread love around

life is hard, i need a remedy
for the way i feel
my bread keeps landing jam side down
say you'll be there to spread love around

my bread keeps landing jam side down
say you'll be there to spread love around

9. Diggin burt bacharach

i got two black eyes
a nasty cut on my nose
a real funny feeling
from my head to my toes
but does she care
no she don't care
no she don't care
but she loves me just the same

blind date, overweight
made me late, i couldn't navigate
red wine, white wine
rise and shine i got to draw the line

black jack clap trap
any kind of flap trap
big mac, lookin' back
diggin' burt bacharach oh

we're in a black limousine
and onto a plane
into the hotel
missin' breakfast again
but does she care
no she don't care
no she don't care
but she loves me just the same

contemplate my watergate
two and eight, i didn't hesitate
day time, night time
underline, i gotta draw the line

blackjack clap trap
any kind of flap trap
big mac lookin' back
diggin' burt bacharach oh

10. Do it again

if you ever found anything better than working
you'd want to do it again
like flying a plane or nude body surfing
you'd want to do it again
that casanova he had it right
he'd just do it again
he'd do it again all day and all night
then he'd do it again

you gonna drink too much say never no more
but you're gonna do it again
trust me i'm a doctor i know for sure
you're gonna do it again

do it again, do it again
if you all like it do it again
do it again, do it again
if it hits you right just do it again

me i get time off i twiddle my thumbs
cos i want to do it again
i get a rush every night when 8.45 comes
can't wait to do it again
there is a price to pay, it ain't cheap
if you want to do it again
but i sold my soul yeah i'm in deep
might as well do it again

life is short, never complain
you could be hit by a truck, fall under a train
enjoying yourself is the name of the game
gotta go back tonight and do it again

do it again, do it again
if you all like it do it again
do it again, do it again
if it hits you right just do it again

that mona lisa now she could smile
and do it again
she'd sit and grin for quite a while
then she'd do it again
you is here then you ain't, that was never in doubt
better do it again
don't take no einstein to work it out
so do it again

do it again, do it again
if you all like it do it again
do it again, do it again
if it hits you right just do it again
do it again, do it again
if you all like it do it again
do it again, do it again
if it hits you right just do it again

11. Another day

You never listen when I say
Only need another day
You never listen when I tell you what I tell you
I'm thinking what I'm thinkin'
Need a little time to keep the motor tickin' over now

Only need another day
Gotta find another way
We got a problem cos I don't know what you're thinkin'
You don't care what I'm feelin'
We better work it out or else there's gonna be a showdown now

Why do you do what you do to me?
You got no clue what you do to me
Try to say but you couldn't see
What do come don't come easily
Only need another day

But it comes and it goes and everybody knows
That I don't like it, no I don't like it
And when it flows and when it starts to go
Then I like it, I sure do like it
I hope the day never comes you throw it all away
I only need another day

You never listen when I
You never listen when I say
I only need another day
You never listen when i tell you what I tell you
I'm thinking what I'm thinkin'
I need a little time to keep the motor tickin' over now

I don't believe that we can't agree
But I ain't letting that bother me
I tried to say but you couldn't see
What do come should come easily
I only need another day

But it comes and it goes and everybody knows
That I don't like it, no I don't like it
And when it flows and when it starts to go
Then I like it, I sure do like it
I hope the day never comes you throw it all away

Another day, I need another day
another day, I need another day
Another day, I need another day

12. I don't remember anymore
