LAST TANGO
1981 – (VERSION ANGLAISE DE “LA DROLE DE FIN”)

THIS TIME IT’S SURE THIS TIME IT’S REAL
THIS TIME I KNOW JUST HOW I FEEL
TWO HEARTS AS ONE BEATING LIKE MAD
GOOD WHEN IT’S GOOD
GOOD WHEN IT’S BAD
HOW WILL IT END NO ONE CAN TELL
LOST IN HIS ARMS CAUGHT IN A SPELL
HEAVEN’S A MAN ALSO IS HELL

(refrain I)
BUT SAY WHERE DO THEY GO
THE MEN WHO LEAVE YOUR FLAT
TO BUY SOME CIGARETTES
AND NEVER DO COME BACK
TO SOME OLD RENTED ROOM
SOME CAFE IN THE SUN
THEY MUST GO TO SOMEWHERE
THEY MUST GO TO SOMEONE
WHERE DO THEY GO
THE MEN WHO LEAVE YOUR FLAT
TO BUY SOME CIGARETTES
AND NEVER DO COME BACK
WHERE DO THEY GO THOSE GUYS
WHO’RE ALWAYS LEAVING TOWN
WHO ALWAYS LIFT YOU UP
AND ALWAYS LET YOU DOWN

I ALWAYS KNEW LOVE COULD BE THIS
SHOCKS WHEN WE TOUCH THRILLS WHEN WE KISS
LOCKED IN LAST TANGO HOW COULD WE MISS

(refrain II)
BUT SAY WHERE DO THEY GO
THE MEN WHO LEAVE YOUR FLAT
TO BUY SOME CIGARETTES
AND NEVER DO COME BACK
TO SOME OLD RENTED ROOM
SOME CAFE IN THE SUN
THEY MUST GO TO SOMEWHERE
THEY MUST GO TO SOMEONE

(pont chorégraphique et refrain III)
WHERE DO THEY GO THE MEN
WHO GO FOR CIGARETTES
AND NEVER DO COME BACK
TO SOME OLD RENTED ROOM
SOME CAFE IN THE SUN
THEY MUST GO TO SOMEWHERE
THEY MUST GO TO SOMEONE
WHERE DO THEY GO
THE MEN WHO LEAVE YOUR FLAT
TO BUY SOME CIGARETTES
AND NEVER DO COME BACK
WHERE DO THEY GO THOSE GUYS
WHO’RE ALWAYS LEAVING TOWN
WHO ALWAYS LIFT YOU UP
AND ALWAYS LET YOU DOWN


MEDLEY ROCK
1981 – RIP IT UP (B.HALEY/BLACKWELL)

WELL, IT’S SATURDAY NIGHT AND I JUST GOT PAID.
A FOOL ABOUT MY MONEY, DON’T TRY TO SAVE.
MY HEART SAYS, “GO GO, HAVE A TIME”,
WELL, IT’S SATURDAY NIGHT, BABE, AND I’M FEELING FINE.

GONNA ROCK IT UP,
GONNA RIP IT UP
GONNA SHAKE IT UP,
GONNA FALL IN LOVE.
GONNA RIP IT UP,
HAVE A BALL TONIGHT.

WELL, I GOT ME A DATE AND I WON’T BE LATE.
I PICKED HER UP IN MY ’88.
SHAG ON DOWN BY THE SOCIAL HALL.
WHEN THE JOINT STARTS JUMPING, I’LL HAVE A BALL.

GONNA ROCK IT UP,
GONNA SHAKE IT UP.
I’M GONNA RIP IT UP,
GONNA FALL IN LOVE.
I’M GONNA RIP IT UP,
HAVE A BALL TONIGHT.

ALONG ABOUT TEN, I’LL BE FLYING HIGH.
I WALK ON OUT IN THE OPEN SKY.
BUT I DON’T CARE IF I SPEND MY DOUGH,
‘CAUSE TONIGHT I’M GONNA BE ONE HAPPY SOUL.

GONNA ROCK IT UP,
GONNA RIP IT UP,
I’M GONNA SHAKE IT UP,
GONNA FALL IN LOVE.
GONNA RIP IT UP,
HAVE A BALL TONIGHT.

WELL, IT’S SATURDAY NIGHT AND I JUST GOT PAID.
A FOOL ABOUT MY MONEY, DON’T TRY TO SAVE.
MY HEART SAYS, “GO, GO, HAVE A TIME”,
WELL IT’S SATURDAY NIGHT, BABE, AND I’M FEELING FINE.

GONNA ROCK IT UP,
GONNA RIP IT UP.
I’M GONNA SHAKE IT UP,
GONNA FALL IN LOVE.
I WANNA RIP IT UP
HAVE A BALL TONIGHT.


TROUBLE
(F.LIEBER/STOLLER)

IF YOU’RE LOOKIN’ FOR TROUBLE,
YOU CAME TO THE RIGHT PLACE.
IF YOU’RE LOOKIN’ FOR TROUBLE,
JUST LOOK RIGHT IN MY FACE.

I WAS BORN STANDING UP
AND TALKING BACK.
MY DADDY WAS A GREEN-EYED
MOUNTAIN JACK.
‘CAUSE I’M EVIL,
MY MIDDLE NAME IS MISERY.
WELL, I’M EVIL,
SO DON’T YOU MESS AROUND WITH ME.

I NEVER LOOKED FOR TROUBLE
BUT I NEVER RAN.
I DON’T TAKE NO ORDERS
FROM NO KIND OF MAN.
I’M ONLY MADE OUT OF FLESH, BLOOD, AND BONE.
BUT IF YOU’RE GONNA START A RUMBLE,
DON’T YOU TRY IT ALL ALONE.

BEAUSE I’M EVIL,
MY MIDDLE NAME IS MISERY.
BECAUSE I’M EVIL,
SO DON’T YOU MESS AROUND WITH ME.


SUMMERTIME BLUES
(E.COCHRAN/CAPEHART)

WELL I’M GONNA RAISE A FUSS AND I’M A-GONNA RAISE A HOLLER
CAUSE I’VE BEEN WORKIN’ ALL SUMMER JUST TO TRY TO MAKE A DOLLAR
WELL I WENT TO THE BOSS MAN THE OTHER DAY
HE SAID: “DON’T TRY GIRL YOU GOTTA WORK A-LATE”
SOMETIMES I WONDER WHAT I’M A GONNA DO
CAUSE THERE AIN’T NO CURE FOR THE SUMMERTIME BLUES

WELL MY MOM AND PAPPA TOLD ME “GIRL YOU GOTTA EARN SOME MONEY
IF YOU WANNA USE THE CAR TO GO A RIDING NEXT SUNDAY”
WELL I WENT TO GET A WORK I TOLD THE BOSS MAN I WAS SICK
HE SAID :” EH! YOU CAN’T USE THE CAR CAUSE YOU DIDN’T WORK A LICK”
SOMETIMES I WONDER WHAT I’M A GONNA DO
CAUSE THERE AIN’T NO CURE FOR THE SUMMERTIME BLUES

IT’S GONNA TAKE TWO WEEKS AND GONNA HAVE FINE VACATION,
I’M GONNA TAKE MY PROBLEM TO THE UNITED NATIONS.
WELL I WENT TO MY CONGRESS MAN HE SAID OH! GIRL:
“I’D LIKE TO HELP YOU SIR BUT YOU ARE TOO YOUNG TO VOTE”
SOMETIMES I WONDER WHAT I’M A GONNA DO,
CAUSE THERE AIN’T NO CURE FOR THE SUMMERTIME BLUES

NO MORE TEARS (ENOUGH IS ENOUGH)
1981

IT’S RAINING, IT’S POURING
MY LOVELIFE IS BORING ME TO TEARS, AFTER ALL THESE YEARS

NO SUNSHINE, NO MOONLIGHT, NO STARDUST, NO SIGN OF ROMANCE
WE DON’T STAND A CHANCE

I’VE ALWAYS DREAMED I FOUND THE PERFECT LOVER
BUT HE TURNED OUT TO BE LIKE EVERY OTHER MAN
OUR LOVE, OUR LOVE

RAINING (RAINING)
POURING (POURING)
THERE’S NOTHING LEFT FOR US HERE
AND WE WON’T WAIST ANOTHER TEAR

IF YOU’VE HAD ENOUGH, DON’T PUT UP WITH HIS STUFF, DON’T YOU DO IT

IF YOU’VE HAD YOUR FILL, GET THE CHECK PAY THE BILL, YOU CAN DO IT

TELL HIM TO JUST GET OUT,

NOTHING LEFT TO TALK ABOUT

PACK HIS RAINCOAT SHOW HIM OUT

JUST LOOK HIM IN THE EYE AND SIMPLY SHOUT:
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
I CAN’T GO ON, I CAN’T GO ON NO MORE NO
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
I WANT HIM OUT, I WANT HIM OUT THAT DOOR NOW

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
THAT’S ENOUGH

IF YOU’VE REACHED THE END, DON’T PRETEND THAT IS RIGHT WHEN IT’S OVER

(IT’S OVER)
IF THE FEELING IS GONE DON’T THINK TWICE JUST MOVE ON, GET IT OVER

(OVER, OVER)

TELL HIM TO JUST GET OUT, SAY IT CLEARLY, SPELL IT OUT:
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
I CAN’T GO ON, I CAN’T GO ON NO MORE NO
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
I WANT HIM OUT, I WANT HIM OUT THAT DOOR NOW

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
THAT’S ENOUGH

I’VE ALWAYS DREAMED TO FIND THE PERFECT LOVER,
BUT HE TURNS OUT TO BE LIKE EVERY OTHER MAN
OUR LOVE (I HAD NO CHOICE FROM THE START)
OUR LOVE (I’VE GOTTA LISTEN TO MY HEART)
OUR LOVE (TEARING US APART)

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
I CAN’T GO ON, I CAN’T GO ON NO MORE NO
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
I WANT HIM OUT, I WANT HIM OUT THAT DOOR NOW

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
THAT’S ENOUGH

NO MORE TEARS (NO MORE TEARS)
NO MORE TEARS (NO MORE TEARS)
NO MORE TEARS (NO MORE TEARS)
NO MORE TEARS (NO MORE TEARS)
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
I’VE HAD IT, YOU’VE HAD IT HE’S HAD IT, WE’VE HAD IS

I ALWAYS DREAMED I FIND THE PERFECT LOVER,

BUT HE TURNED OUT TO BE LIKE EVERY OTHER MAN

I HAD NO CHOICE FROM THE START
I’VE GOTTA LISTEN TO MY HEART
TEARING US APART

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
I CAN’T GO ON, I CAN’T GO ON NO MORE NO
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
I WANT HIM OUT, I WANT HIM OUT THAT DOOR NOW

GOODBYE MISTER, GOODBYE, GOODBYE MISTER
GOODBYE SUGAR

IT’S RAINING, IT’S POURING,
THERE’S NOTHING LEFT FOR US HERE
AND WE WON’T WAIST ANOTHER TEAR

NO MORE TEARS
IS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
IS ENOUGH!


MORNING TRAIN
1982

I WAKE UP EVERY MORNIN’, I STUMBLE OUT OF BED
STRETCHIN’ AND YAWNIN’, ANOTHER DAY AHEAD
IT SEEMS TO LAST FOREVER, AND TIME GOES SLOWLY BY
TILL BABE AND ME’S TOGETHER, THEN IT STARTS TO FLY

‘CAUSE THE MOMENT THAT HE’S WITH ME, TIME CAN TAKE A FLIGHT
THE MOMENT THAT HE’S WITH ME, EVERYTHING’S ALRIGHT
NIGHT TIME IS THE RIGHT TIME, WE MAKE LOVE
THEN IT’S HIS AND MY TIME, WE TAKE OFF

CHORUS:
MY BABY TAKES THE MORNING TRAIN, HE WORKS FROM NINE TILL FIVE AND THEN
HE TAKES ANOTHER HOME AGAIN TO FIND ME WAITIN’ FOR HIM

HE TAKES ME TO A MOVIE, OR TO A RESTAURANT, TO GO
SLOW DANCING, ANYTHING I WANT
ONLY WHEN HE’S WITH ME, I CATCH LIGHT
ONLY WHEN HE GIVES ME, MAKES ME FEEL ALRIGHT

ALL DAY I THINK OF HIM, DREAMIN’ OF HIM CONSTANTLY
I’M CRAZY MAD FOR HIM, AND HE’S CRAZY MAD FOR ME
WHEN HE STEPS OFF THAT TRAIN, I’M MAKIN’ A FOOL, A FIGHT
WORK ALL DAY TO EARN HIS PAY, SO WE CAN PLAY ALL NIGHT

HE’S ALWAYS ON THAT MORNING TRAIN
HE WORKS SO HARD
TO FIND ME WAITING FOR HIM…


QUEEN OF HEARTS
(HANK DE VITO) – 1981

MIDNIGHT,
AND I’M A-WAITING
ON THE TWELVE-OH-FIVE
HOPING IT’LL TAKE ME
JUST A LITTLE FARTHER DOWN THE LINE

MOONLIGHT,
YOU’RE JUST A HEARTACHE IN DISGUISE;
WON’T YOU KEEP MY HEART FROM BREAKING
IF IT’S ONLY FOR A VERY SHORT TIME

CHORUS:
PLAYING WITH THE QUEEN OF HEARTS,
KNOWING IT AIN’T REALLY SMART
THE JOKER AIN’T THE ONLY FOOL
WHO’LL DO ANYTHING FOR YOU

LAYING OUT ANOTHER LIE,
THINKING ‘BOUT A LIFE OF CRIME
THAT’S WHAT I’LL HAVE TO DO
TO KEEP ME AWAY FROM YOU

HONEY, YOU KNOW IT MAKES YOU MAD
WHY IS EVERYBODY TELLING EVERYBODY
WHAT YOU HAVE DONE
BABY, I KNOW IT MAKES YOU SAD
BUT WHEN THEY’RE HANDING OUT THE HEARTACHES
YOU KNOW YOU GOT TO HAVE YOU SOME

CHORUS:
LOVERS, I KNOW YOU’VE HAD A FEW
BUT HIDE YOUR HEART BENEATH THE COVERS
AND TELL ‘EM THEY’RE THE ONLY ONE
AND OTHERS, THEY KNOW JUST
WHAT I’M GOING THROUGH
AND IT’S A-HARD TO BE A LOVER
WHEN YOU SAY YOU’RE ONLY IN IT FOR FUN
PLAYING WITH THE QUEEN OF HEARTS,
KNOWING IT AIN’T REALLY SMART
THE JOKER AIN’T THE ONLY FOOL
WHO’LL DO ANYTHING FOR YOU

CHORUS:

PLAYING WITH THE QUEEN OF HEARTS

(REPEAT AND FADE)


BI-COSTAL


YOU USED TO LIVE IN NEW YORK CITY
THEN YOU MOVED TO L.A.
BUT YOU STILL MISS THE STREETS
WHERE YOU USED TO PLAY

SO YOU HURRY ON BACK THERE
(EVEN) LEAVE YOUR POOL AND YOUR CAR
ONLY TO FIND YOU NO LONGER BELONG
FOOL DON’T YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE

HIT THE STREETS AT MIDNIGHT
STILL DANCING AFTER DAWN
BUT SOMETHING SEEMS TO BE MISSING JUST WHAT ARE YOU RUNNING FROM

DO YOU LIKE YOUR LOVE IN THE DARK
OR LAID OUT IN THE SUN
WHEN YOU JUST CAN’T MAKE UP YOUR MIND
DON’T YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’VE BECOME

BI-COASTAL, MISS THE NATURAL SPEED OF THE CITY
BI-COASTAL, CALIFORNIA’S FINE IF YOU’RE PRETTY

BI-COASTAL, WHEN BOTH ARE SO MUCH FUN
WHY DO YOU HAVE TO PICK ONE

YOU CAN ALWAYS HEAR ME SINGING
OH SAY CAN YOU SEE
FROM THE TOWERS OF MANHATTAN
TO THE HILLS OF BEVERLY

ALL THOSE GIRLS IN TV MOVIES
ALL THOSE BOYS ON BROADWAY
WHEN YOU CAN’T MAKE UP YOUR MIND
YOU KNOW YOU’D GO EITHER WAY

BI-COASTAL, MISS THE NATURAL SPEED OF THE CITY
BI-COASTAL, CALIFORNIA’S FINE IF YOU’RE PRETTY
BI-COASTAL, WHEN BOTH ARE SO MUCH FUN
WHY DO YOU HAVE TO PICK ONE


GLORIA
(1982)

GLORIA, YOU’RE ALWAYS ON THE RUN NOW
RUNNING AFTER SOMEBODY, YOU GOTTA GET HIM SOMEHOW
I THINK YOU’VE GOT TO SLOW DOWN BEFORE YOU START TO BLOW IT
I THINK YOU’RE HEADED FOR A BREAKDOWN, SO BE CAREFUL NOT TO SHOW IT

YOU REALLY DON’T REMEMBER, WAS IT SOMETHING THAT HE SAID?
ARE THE VOICES IN YOUR HEAD CALLING, GLORIA?
GLORIA, DON’T YOU THINK YOU’RE FALLIN’?
IF EVERYBODY WANTS YOU, WHY ISN’T ANYBODY CALLIN’?
YOU DON’T HAVE TO ANSWER
LEAVE THEM HANGIN’ ON THE LINE, OH-OH-OH, CALLING GLORIA
GLORIA (GLORIA), I THINK THEY GOT YOUR NUMBER (GLORIA)
I THINK THEY GOT THE ALIAS (GLORIA) THAT YOU’VE BEEN LIVING UNDER (GLORIA)
BUT YOU REALLY DON’T REMEMBER, WAS IT SOMETHING THAT THEY SAID?
ARE THE VOICES IN YOUR HEAD CALLING, GLORIA?

A-HA-HA, A-HA-HA, GLORIA, HOW’S IT GONNA GO DOWN?
WILL YOU MEET HIM ON THE MAIN LINE, OR WILL YOU CATCH HIM ON THE REBOUND?
WILL YOU MARRY FOR THE MONEY, TAKE A LOVER IN THE AFTERNOON?
FEEL YOUR INNOCENCE SLIPPING AWAY, DON’T BELIEVE IT’S COMIN’ BACK SOON

AND YOU REALLY DON’T REMEMBER, WAS IT SOMETHING THAT HE SAID?
ARE THE VOICES IN YOUR HEAD CALLING, GLORIA?
GLORIA, DON’T YOU THINK YOU’RE FALLIN’?
IF EVERYBODY WANTS YOU, WHY ISN’T ANYBODY CALLIN’?
YOU DON’T HAVE TO ANSWER
LEAVE THEM HANGIN’ ON THE LINE, OH-OH-OH, CALLING GLORIA
GLORIA (GLORIA), I THINK THEY GOT YOUR NUMBER (GLORIA)
I THINK THEY GOT THE ALIAS (GLORIA) THAT YOU’VE BEEN LIVING UNDER (GLORIA)
BUT YOU REALLY DON’T REMEMBER, WAS IT SOMETHING THAT THEY SAID?
ARE THE VOICES IN YOUR HEAD CALLING, GLORIA?

(GLORIA, GLORIA, GLORIA, GLORIA, GLORIA)


BETTE DAVIS EYES
1982

HER HAIR IS HARLOW GOLD, HER LIPS SWEET SURPRISE
HER HANDS ARE NEVER COLD, SHE’S GOT BETTE DAVIS EYES
SHE’LL TURN HER MUSIC ON YOU, YOU WON’T HAVE TO THINK TWICE
SHE’S PURE AS NEW YORK SNOW, SHE GOT BETTE DAVIS EYES

AND SHE’LL TEASE YOU, SHE’LL UNEASE YOU
ALL THE BETTER JUST TO PLEASE YOU
SHE’S PRECOCIOUS, AND SHE KNOWS JUST
WHAT IT TAKES TO MAKE A PRO BLUSH
SHE GOT GRETA GARBO’S STAND OFF SIGHS, SHE’S GOT BETTE DAVIS EYES

SHE’LL LET YOU TAKE HER HOME, IT WHETS HER APPETITE
SHE’LL LAY YOU ON HER THRONE, SHE’S GOT BETTE DAVIS EYES
SHE’LL TAKE A TUMBLE ON YOU, ROLL YOU LIKE YOU WERE DICE
UNTIL YOU COME UP BLUE, SHE’S GOT BETTE DAVIS EYES

SHE’LL EXPOSE YOU, WHEN SHE SNOWS YOU
HOPE YOU BREATHE WITH THE CRUMBS SHE THROWS YOU
SHE’S FEROCIOUS AND SHE KNOWS JUST
WHAT IT TAKES TO MAKE A PRO BLUSH
ALL THE BOYS THINK SHE’S A SPY, SHE’S GOT BETTE DAVIS EYES

AND SHE’LL TEASE YOU, SHE’LL UNEASE YOU
ALL THE BETTER JUST TO PLEASE YOU
SHE’S PRECOCIOUS, AND SHE KNOWS JUST
WHAT IT TAKES TO MAKE A PRO BLUSH
ALL THE BOYS THINK SHE’S A SPY, SHE’S GOT BETTE DAVIS EYES…


MEDLEY SMILE
1982 – (J. TURNER/G. PARSONS/SIR C. CHAPLIN)

SMILE, THOUGH YOUR HEART IS ACHING
SMILE, EVEN THOUGH ITS BREAKING
WHEN THERE ARE CLOUDS IN THE SKY YOU’LL GET BY
IF YOU SMILE, THROUGH YOUR FEAR AND SORROW
SMILE, AND MAYBE TOMORROW
YOU’LL SEE THE SUN COME SHINING THROUGH FOR YOU


THE SUN’LL COME OUT TOMORROW
BET YOUR BOTTOM DOLLAR THAT TOMORROW THERE’LL BE SUN!
JUST THINKIN’ ABOUT TOMORROW
CLEARS AWAY THE COBWEBS, AND THE SORROW ‘TIL THERE’S NONE!
WHEN I’M STUCK IN A DAY THAT’S GRAY, AND LONELY,
I JUST STICK OUT MY CHIN AND I GRINB, AND I SAY,

SMILE


SMILE
SMILE, THOUGH YOUR HEART IS ACHING
SMILE, EVEN THOUGH IT’S BREAKING
ALTHOUGH A TEAR MAY BE EVER SO NEAR
THAT’S THE TIME YOU MUST KEEP ON TRYING
SMILE, WHAT’S THE USE OF CRYING?
YOU’LL FIND THAT LIFE IS STILL WORTHWHILE
IF YOU JUST… SMILE


YOU THINK I DON’T KNOW ?
I KNOW
I SEE HER ALL THE TIME
ON YOU HANDKERSHIEF WITH HER LIPSTICK ON IT
ANOTHER ONE YOU FORGOT IN YOUR JACKET
A TICKET FOR A MOVIE WE NEVER WENT TO
YOU KNOW LOVE IS NOT EASY
IT SCARES YOU
SO YOU WAKE FROM LOVE
MY LOVE
BUT YOU KNOW MY DARLING
MON AMOUR
THERE’S SOMETHING ELSE I KNOW
YOU CAN WALK AWAY FROM LOVE
LOVE WON’T LET YOU
I I WON’T LET YOU


IF YOU GO AWAY


CAUSE IF YOU GO AWAY ON THIS SUMMER DAY
THEN YOU MIGHT AS WELL TAKE THE SUN AWAY
ALL THE BIRDS THAT FLEW IN THE SUMMER SKY
WHEN OUR LOVE WAS NEW AND OUR HEARTS WERE HIGH
WHEN THE DAY WAS YOUNG AND THE NIGHT WAS LONG
AND THE MOON STOOD STILL FOR THE NIGHT BIRD’S SONG
IF YOU GO AWAY
IF YOU GO AWAY
IF YOU GO AWAY
BUT IF YOU STAY I’LL MAKE YOU A DAY
LIKE NO DAY HAS BEEN OR WILL BE AGAIN
I’LL SAIL ON YOUR SMILE WE’LL RIDE ON YOUR TOUCH
I’LL TALK TO YOUR EYES THAT I LOVE SO MUCH
BUT IF YOU GO, GO
IF YOU GO AWAY
IF YOU GO AWAY
NE ME QUITTE PAS


NON C’EST RIEN / FREE AGAIN
NON C’EST RIEN
OU SI PEU CROYEZ LE BIEN
ÇA IRA MIEUX DES DEMAIN
AVEC LE TEMPS QUI PASSE
DANS LA VIE TOUT S’EFFACE
NON C’EST RIEN
JE N’AI PAS TANT DE CHAGRIN
CET AMOUR N’ÉTAIT PLUS RIEN
PLUS RIEN QU’UNE HABITUDE
J’EN AI LA CERTITUDE
LAISSEZ MOI
CETTE NUIT PARTEZ MAIS SANS MOI
ALLEZ BOIRE A MES AMOURS
A TOUS MES FUTURS AMOURS
MES PROCHAINS JE TAIME
JE TAIME


FREE AGAIN, INDEPENDENT ME, FREE AGAIN
TIME TO CALL UP ALL THE CROWD
RAISE THE ROOF AND SHOUT OUT LOUD
TIME TO HAVE A PARTY, A PARTY


CAN’T SMILE WITHOUT YOU


NOW SOME PEOPLE SAY HAPPINESS TAKES
SO VERY LONG TO FIND
WELL, I’M FINDING IT HARD LEAVING YOUR LOVE BEHIND
I FEEL SAD WHEN YOU’RE SAD
I FEEL GLAD WHEN YOU’RE GLAD
I CAN’T LAUGH AND I CAN’T SING
I’M FINDING IT HARD TO DO ANYTHING
I CAN’T SMILE WITHOUT YOU
I CAN’T SMILE WITHOUT YOU
IF YOU ONLY KNEW WHAT I’M GOING THROUGH
I JUST CAN’T SMILE WITHOUT YOU

LOVE AGAIN

I DIDN’T THINK IT COULD HAPPEN AGAIN
I’M JUST TOO OLD AND SET IN MY WAYS
I WAS CONVINCED I WOULD ALWAYS BE LONELY
ALL OF THE REST OF MY DAYS

MAYBE I GAVE UP ON ROMANCE
IN MY LONGING TO GIVE UP THE PAIN
I JUST DIDN’T BELIEVE
I WOULD EVER LOVE AGAIN

I WAS LIKE ONE WHO HAD SHUT MYSELF IN
CLOSED THE WINDOWS; LOCKED ALL THE DOORS
AFRAID OF THE DARK AND THE BEAT OF MY HEART
AND YET, KNOWING THERE HAD TO BE MORE

THOUGH IT SOUNDS LIKE A GREAT CONTRADICTION
IT’S THE EASIEST THING TO EXPLAIN
YOU SEE I WAS AFRAID
I MIGHT NEVER LOVE AGAIN

WHAT DOES IT TAKE FOR A BLIND MAN TO SEE
THAT THERE’S MORE THERE THAN JUST MEETS THE EYE
WHAT ARE THE WAYS THAT THE MAGIC COMES IN
THAT CAN TURN A SONG INTO A SIGH

SOMETIMES I THINK THAT I’M DREAMING
OR MAYBE I’M GOING INSANE
OR MAYBE IT’S JUST THAT
I’M FALLING IN LOVE AGAIN

HERE I AM STANDING BESIDE YOU
AH LIFE’S SUCH A WONDERFUL GAME
LOOK AT ME NOW I’VE FALLEN IN LOVE AGAIN
LOOK AT ME NOW I’VE FALLEN IN LOVE AGAIN

EARTH AND AIR
1992

I’M TRYIN TO TOUCH ALL WHAT YOU ARE
YOU’RE JUST WITHIN REACH AND THEN YOU’RE FAR AWAY
TELL ME WHERE NIGHT BECOMES THE DAY
WHAT IS THE CANDLE TO THE BURNING FLAME ?
IS THERE A BRIDGE THAT CAN CROSS OUR DIFFERENCES
IF THE RIVER THAT DIVIDES US IS THE SAME ?
DON’T WE STAND A CHANCE ?
DON’T WE HAVE A PRAYER ?
YOU ARE THE EARTH
AND I AM AIR
DON’T WE MEET SOMEWHERE ?
GIVE US A CHANCE
PRAY A SILENT PRAYER
FOR THE LOVE THAT AIR AND EARTH MIGHT SHARE
I AM THE WIND THE CLOUDS AND THE RAIN
YOU ARE THE DREAM THAT SOMEHOW CHANGES ME
YOU BREATHE ME IN AND HOLD ME HERE
NO LINES IS DRAWN EXCEPT BY FEAR MY LOVE
WE’VE BEEN IN SEARCH OF AN EXPLANATION
TO A QUESTION THAT REMAINS SO UNCLEAR
DON’T WE STAND A CHANCE ?
DON’T WE HAVE A PRAYER ?
YOU ARE THE EARTH
AND I AM AIR
DON’T WE MEET SOMEWHERE ?
GIVE US A CHANCE
PRAY A SILENT PRAYER
FOR THE LOVE THAT AIR AND EARTH COULD SHARE
WE’VE BEEN IN SEARCH OF AN EXPLANATION
TO A QUESTION THAT REMAINS SO UNCLEAR
DON’T WE STAND A CHANCE ?
DON’T WE HAVE A PRAYER ?
YOU ARE THE EARTH
AND I AM AIR
DON’T WE MEET SOMEWHERE ?
GIVE US A CHANCE
PRAY A SILENT PRAYER
FOR THE LOVE THAT AIR AND EARTH COULD SHARE


DIRTY DANCING
1992

CAN’T SLEEP CAN’T EAT
THAT’S MUSIC GOT ME IN A TRANCE
MY BLOOD IS RACING
ALL I WANNA DO IS DANCE
I WANNA WANNA WANNA
FEEL IT IN MY SOUL
PUMPING THROUGH MY VEINS
I’M SPINNING LIKE A WHEEL
JUST LIKE A HURRICANE
YOUR BODY’S MELTING INTO MINE
LET’S LEAVE THE WORLD BEHIND
WE’RE DIRTY DANCING
EVERYBODY GET DOWN
WE’RE DANCING DIRTY
HEAR THAT RYTHM POUND
COME ON AND LET THAT MUSIC LIFT US HIGH
RIGHT UP TO PARADISE
WE’RE DIRTY DANCIN’ YEAH YEAH
NO CURE FOR SURE
IT’S GOT ME CLIMBING UP THE WALL
CAN’T SPEAK I’M WEAK
I GOT THE BEAT I HEAR THE CALL
I WANNA WANNA WANNA
FEEL THAT FEVER BURNING
RIGHT DOWN THROUGH THE FLOOR
OUR BODIES TWISTING TURNING
LIKE REVOLVING DOORS
OH LET THE LIGHTNING STRIKE
LET’S THUNDER THROUGH THE NIGHT
WE’RE DIRTY DANCIN’
EVERYBODY GET DOWN
WE’RE DANCING DIRTY
GEAR THAT RYTHM POUND
DON’CHA KNOW WE’RE ROCKIN’ALL THE WAY
UNTIL THE BREAK OF DAY
WE’RE DIRTY DANCIN’
GONNA KEEP IT HOT
WE’VE DANCING DIRTY
GIVE IT ALL YOU GOT
COME ON AND LET THAT MUSIC LIFT US HIGH
RIGHT UP TO PARADISE
WE’RE DIRTY DANCIN’ YEAH YEAH YEAH
COME ON COME ON
CAN’T WAIT TOO LATE
OH BABE YOU GOT ME IN THE GROOVE
GONNA BLOW LIKE DYNAMITE
COME ON AND DETONATE MY FUSE
I WANNA WANNA WANNA
ROCK UNTIL I DROP
YOU REALLY TURN ME ON
I’M ROLLING LIKE A TOP
ONE MORE SPIN AND I’LL BE GONE
THERE’S NO DOUBT ABOUT IT
I JUST CAN’T DO WITHOUT IT
WE’RE DIRTY DANCIN’
EVERYBODY GET DOWN
WE’RE DANCING DIRTY
HEAR THAT RYTHM POUND
DON’CHA KNOW WE’RE ROCKIN’ALL THE WAY
UNTIL THE BREAK OF DAY
WE’RE DIRTY DANCIN’
GONNA KEEP IT HOT
WE’VE DANCING DIRTY
GIVE IT ALL YOU GOT
COME ON AND LET THAT MUSIC LIFT US HIGH
RIGHT UP TO PARADISE
WE’RE DIRTY DANCIN’ YEAH YEAH YEAH
DIRTY DANCIN’
DIRTY DANCE


SON OF A PREACHER MAN
JOHN HURLEY & RONNIE WILKINS

BILLY RAY WAS A PREACHER’S SON
AND WHEN HIS DADDY WOULD VISIT HE’D COME ALONG
WHEN THEY GATHERED AROUND AND STARTED TALKIN’
THAT’S WHEN BILLY WOULD TAKE ME WALKIN’
OUT THROUGH THE BACK YARD WE’D GO WALKIN’
THEN HE’D LOOK INTO MY EYES
LORD KNOWS, TO MY SURPRISE
THE ONLY ONE WHO COULD EVER REACH ME
WAS THE SON OF A PREACHER MAN
THE ONLY BOY WHO COULD EVER TEACH ME
WAS THE SON OF A PREACHER MAN
YES HE WAS, HE WAS, OOH, YES HE WAS
[BRIEF INSTRUMENTAL INTERLUDE]
BEIN’ GOOD ISN’T ALWAYS EASY
NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRY
WHEN HE STARTED SWEET-TALKIN’ TO ME
HE’D COME’N TELL ME “EVERYTHING IS ALL RIGHT”
HE’D KISS AND TELL ME “EVERYTHING IS ALL RIGHT”
CAN I GET AWAY AGAIN TONIGHT?
THE ONLY ONE WHO COULD EVER REACH ME
WAS THE SON OF A PREACHER MAN
THE ONLY BOY WHO COULD EVER TEACH ME
WAS THE SON OF A PREACHER MAN
YES HE WAS, HE WAS, OOH, YES HE WAS (YES HE WAS)
HOW WELL I REMEMBER
THE LOOK THAT WAS IN HIS EYES
STEALIN’ KISSES FROM ME ON THE SLY
TAKIN’ TIME TO MAKE TIME
TELLIN’ ME THAT HE’S ALL MINE
LEARNIN’ FROM EACH OTHER’S KNOWIN’
LOOKIN’ TO SEE HOW MUCH WE’VE GROWN AND
THE ONLY ONE WHO COULD EVER REACH ME
WAS THE SON OF A PREACHER MAN
THE ONLY BOY WHO COULD EVER TEACH ME
WAS THE SON OF A PREACHER MAN
YES HE WAS, HE WAS, OH YES HE WAS
(THE ONLY ONE WHO COULD EVER REACH ME)
HE WAS THE SWEET-TALKIN’ SON OF A PREACHER MAN
(THE ONLY BOY WHO COULD EVER TEACH ME)
WAS THE SON OF A PREACHER MAN
(THE ONLY ONE WHO COULD EVER REACH ME)
WAS THE SWEET-TALKIN’ SON OF A PREACHER MAN
