Maybe I’m Amazed

McCartney
1970

Baby I'm Amazed at the way you love me
all the time.
and maybe I'm afraid of the way I love you
Maybe I'm amazed at the way you pulled me
out of time, and hung me on a line, and maybe
I'm amazed at the way I really need you.

Middle
Baby, I'm a man, maybe I'm a lonely man
whose in the middle of something
That he doesn't really understand
Baby I'm a man maybe you're the only woman
who could ever help me,
Baby, won't you help me to understand.

Maybe I'm amazed at the way you're with me
all the time,
and maybe I'm afraid of the way I leave you,
maybe I'm amazed at the way you help me
sing my song,
right me when I'm wrong,
and maybe I'm amazed at the way I really
need you.

Middle
Baby I’m a man, (REPEAT)…

Heart Of The Country

RAM
1971

I look high, I look low
I’m looking everywhere I go
Looking for a home
In the heart of the country

I'm going to move, l'm going to go
I'm going to tell everyone I know
Looking for a home
In the heart of the country

Heart of the country
Where the holy people grow
Heart of the country
Smell the grass in the meadow

Want a horse, I want a sheep
I want get me a good night's sleep
Living in a home
In the heart of the country

I'm going to move, l'm going to go
I'm going to tell everyone I know
Living in a home
In the heart of the country

Heart of the country
Where the holy people grow
Heart of the country
Smell the grass in the meadow
Wo wo wo

Want a horse, I got a sheep
I’m going to get me a good night’s sleep
Living in a home in the heart of the country

I'm going to move, l'm going to go
I'm going to tell everyone I know
In the heart of the country

Heart of the country
Where the holy people grow
Heart of the country
Smell the grass in the meadow
Wo wo wo

Jet

Band on the Run
1973

Jet, Jet,
Jet I can almost remember their funny faces
That time you told them that you were going to be marrying soon
And Jet I thought the only lonely place was on the moon
Jet Jet Jet

Jet was your father as bold as the sergeant major
How come he told you that you were hardly old enough yet
And Jet I thought the major was a lady suffragette
Jet Jet Jet

Ah Mater want Jet to always love me
Ah Mater want Jet to always love me
Ah Mater . . . much later
Jet
And Jet I thought the major was a lady suffragette
Jet Jet
Ah Mater want Jet to always love me
Ah Mater want Jet to always love me
Ah Mater . . . much later
Jet with the wind in your hair
Of a thousand laces
Climb on the back and we'll go for a ride in the sky
And Jet I thought
that the major was a little lady suffragette

Jet-Jet-Jet
And Jet you know I thought
you was a little lady suffragette
Jet
A little lady
My little lady . . . yes

Warm And Beautiful

At The Speed Of Sound
1976

A love so warm and beautiful
Stands when time itself is falling
A love so warm and beautiful
Never fades away

Love, faith and hope are beautiful
When your world is touched by sadness
To each his own is wonderful
Love will never die

Sunlight’s morning glory
Tells the story of our love
Moonlight on the water
Brings me inspiration ever after

Sunlight’s morning glory
Tells the story of our love
Moonlight on the water
Brings me inspiration ever after

A love so warm and beautiful
Stands when time itself is calling
A love so warm and beautiful
Never fades away
Never fades away

Listen To What The Man Said

Venus and Mars
1975

Any time, any day,
You can hear the people say,
That love is blind
Well I don’t know but I say love is kind

Soldier boy kisses girl
Leaves behind a tragic world
But he won’t mind
He’s in love and he says love is fine

Oh–yes, indeed we know
That people will find a way to go
No matter what the man said
And love is fine for all we know
For all we know, our love will grow
–that’s what the man said
So won’t you listen to what the man said

He said…

Oh–yes, indeed we know
That people will find a way to go
No matter what the man said
And love is fine for all we know
For all we know, our love will grow
–that’s what the man said
So won’t you listen to what the man said

He said…

Oh–yes, indeed we know
That people will find a way to go
No matter what the man said
And love is fine for all we know
For all we know, our love will grow
–that’s what the man said
So won’t you listen to what the man said

The wonder of it all baby……
The wonder of it all baby……

Dear Boy

RAM
1971

I guess you never knew, Dear Boy
What you had found
I guess you never knew, Dear Boy
That she was just the cutest thing around
I guess you never knew what you had found, Dear Boy

I guess you never saw, Dear Boy
That love was there
And maybe when you look too hard, Dear Boy
You never do become aware
I guess you never did become aware, Dear Boy

When I stepped in, my heart was down and out
But her love came through and brought me ‘round
Got me up and about

Dear Boy
Dear Boy
Dear Boy
Dear Boy

When I stepped in, my heart was down and out
But her love came through and brought me round
Got me up and about

I hope you never know, Dear Boy
How much you missed
And even when you fall in love, Dear Boy
It won't be half as good as this
I hope you never know how much you missed, Dear Boy
How much you missed
Dear Boy

Silly Love Songs

At The Speed Of Sound
1976

You'd think that people would have had enough of silly love songs
But I look around me
and I see it isn't so
Some people want to fill the world
with silly love songs
and what's wrong with that?
I'd like to know
cos here I go again

I love you, I love you
I love you, I love you

Ah, I can't explain
the feeling's plain to me
Now can't you see?
Ah, she gave me more
she gave it all to me
Now can't you see?
What's wrong with that?
I need to know
cos here I go again

I love you, I love you

Love doesn't come in a minute
Sometimes it doesn't come at all
I only know that when I'm in it
It isn't silly, no, it isn't silly
Love isn't silly at all

How can I tell you about my loved one?
How can I tell you about my loved one?
How can I tell you about my loved one?
How can I tell you about my loved one?

I love you, I love you
I love you, I love you

Ah, I can't explain
The feeling's plain to me
Say, can't you see?

Ah, he gave me more
He gave it all to me
Say, can't you see?

Ah, I can't explain
The feeling's plain to me
Say, can't you see?

Ah, he gave me more
He gave it all to me
Say, can't you see?

Ah, I can't explain
The feeling's plain to me
Say, can't you see?

Ah, he gave me more
He gave it all to me
Say, can't you see?

You'd think that people would have had enough of silly love songs
But I look around me and I see it isn't so, oh no,
Some people want to fill the world
with silly love songs
And what's wrong with that?

The Song We Were Singing

Flaming Pie
1997

For a while, we could sit, smoke a pipe
And discuss all the vast intricacies of life
We could jaw through the night
Talk about a range of subjects, anything you like
Oh yeah

But we always came back to the song we were singing
At any particular time
Yeah, we always came back to the song we were singing
At any particular time

Take a sip, see the world through a glass
And speculate about the cosmic solution
To the sound, blue guitars
Caught up in a philosophical discussion
Oh yeah

But we always came back to the song we were singing
At any particular time
Yeah, we always came back to the songs we were singing
At any particular time

For a while, we could sit, smoke a pipe
And discuss all the vast intricacies of life
We could jaw through the night
Talk about a range of subjects, anything you like
Oh yeah

But we always came back to the song we were singing
At any particular time
Yeah, we always came back to the song we were singing
At any particular time
Yeah, we always came back

Take a sip, see the world through a glass
And speculate about the cosmic solution
To the sound, blue guitars
Caught up in a philosophical discussion
Oh yeah

But we always came back to the songs we were singing
At any particular time
Yes, we always came back to the songs we were singing
At any particular time
Yeah

We always came back to the songs we were singing

Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey

RAM
1971

We're so sorry, Uncle Albert
We're so sorry if we caused you any pain
We're so sorry, Uncle Albert
But there's no one left at home
And I believe I’m gonna rain

We're so sorry, but we haven't heard a thing all day
We're so sorry, Uncle Albert
But if anything should happen we'll be sure to give a ring

(Spoken)
We're so sorry, Uncle Albert
But we haven't done a bloody thing all day
We're so sorry, Uncle Albert
But the kettle's on the boil
And we're so easily called away

Hands across the water (water)
Heads across the sky
Hands across the water (water)
Heads across the sky

Admiral Halsey notified me
He had to have a berth or he couldn't get to sea
I had another look and I had a cup of tea and a butter pie

Hands across the water (water)
Heads across the sky
Hand across the water (water)
Heads across the sky

Live a little, be a gypsy, get around (get around)
Get your feet up off the ground
Live a little, get around
Live a little, be a gypsy, get around (get around)
Get your feet up off the ground
Live a little, get around

Hands across the water (water)
Heads across the sky
Hands across the water (water)
Heads across the sky

Early Days

NEW
2013

They can’t take it from me if they try
I lived through those early days
So many times I had to change the pain to laughter
Just to keep from getting crazed

Dressed in black from head to toe
Two guitars across our backs
We would walk the city roads
Seeking someone who would listen to the music
That we were writing down at home

But they can’t take it from me if they try
I lived through those early days
So many times I had to change the pain to laughter
Just to keep from getting crazy

Hair slicked back with Vaseline
Like the pictures on the wall
Of the local record shop
Hearing noises we were destined to remember
We willed the thrill to never stop

May sweet memories of friends from the past
Always come to you, when you look for them
And your inspiration, long may it last
May it come to you, time and time again

Now everybody seems to have their own opinion
Who did this and who did that
But as for me I don’t see how they can remember
When they weren’t where it was at

And they can’t take it from me if they try
I lived through those early days
So many times I had to change the pain to laughter
Just to keep from getting crazed
I lived through those early days
I lived through those early days

Big Barn Bed

Red Rose Speedway
1973

Who's that coming round that corner?
Who's that coming round that bend?
Who's that coming round that corner?
Will it, will it be my friend?

Keep on sleeping in a big barn bed
Keep on sleeping in a big barn bed
Keep on sleeping in a big barn bed
Keep on sleeping in a big barn bed

Who you gonna weep on?
Who you gonna sleep on?
Who you gonna creep on next?

Weeping on a willow
Sleeping on a pillow
Leaping armadillo, yes.

Keep on sleeping in a big barn bed
Keep on sleeping in a big barn bed

Keep on sleeping in a big barn bed
Keep on…

Another Day

Another Day
1971

Ev'ry day she takes a morning bath she wets her hair,
Wraps a towel around her as she's heading for the bedroom chair
It's just another day
Slipping into stockings, stepping into shoes
Dipping in the pocket of her raincoat
It's just another day
At the office where the papers grow she takes a break,
Drinks another coffee and she finds it hard to stay awake
It's just another day

Du du du du du du, it's just another day
Du du du du du du, it's just another day

So sad, so sad
Sometimes she feels so sad
Alone in her apartment she'd dwell
Till the man of her dreams comes to break the spell
Ah, stay, don't stand her up
And he comes and he stays but he leaves the next day
So sad
Sometimes she feels so sad

As she posts another letter to the sound of five,
People gather 'round her and she finds it hard to stay alive.
It's just another day

Du du du du du du, it's just another day
Du du du du du du, it's just another day

So sad, so sad
Sometimes she feels so sad
Alone in her apartment she'd dwell
Till the man of her dreams comes to break the spell
Ah, stay, don't stand her up
And he comes and he stays but he leaves the next day
So sad
Sometimes she feels so sad

Ev'ry day she takes a morning bath she wets her hair,
Wraps a towel around her as she's heading for the bedroom chair
It's just another day

Slipping into stockings, stepping into shoes
Dipping in the pocket of her raincoat
Ah, it's just another day

Du du du du du du, it's just another day
Du du du du du du, it's just another day

Flaming Pie

Flaming Pie
1997

Making love underneath the bed
Shooting stars from a purple sky
I don't care how I do it
I'm the man on the flaming pie

Stick my tongue out and lick my nose
Tuck my shirt in and zip my fly
Go ahead, have a vision
I'm the man on the flaming pie

Everything I do has a simple explanation
When I'm with you, you could do with a vacation
I took my brains out and stretched ‘em on the rack
Now I'm not so sure I'm ever gonna get ‘em back

Cut my toes off to spite my feet
I don't know whether to laugh or cry
Never mind, check my rhythm
I'm the man on the flaming pie

I'm the man on the flaming pie
Now everything I do has a simple explanation
When I'm with you, you could do with a vacation
I took my brains out and stretched ‘em on the rack
Now I'm not so sure I'm ever gonna get ’em back

Jenny Wren

Chaos and Creation in the Backyard
2005

Like so many girls
Jenny Wren could sing
But a broken heart
Took her song away

Like the other girls
Jenny Wren took wing
She could see the world
And its foolish ways

How we spend our days
Casting love aside
Losing sight of life day by day

She saw poverty
Breaking up a home
Wounded warriors
Took her song away

But the day will come
Jenny Wren will sing
When this broken world
Mends its foolish ways

Then we’ll spend our days
Catching up on life
All because of you Jenny Wren
You saw who we are Jenny Wren

Too Many People

RAM
1971

Too many people going underground
Too many reaching for a piece of cake
Too many people pulled and pushed around
Too many waiting for that lucky break

That was your first mistake
You took your lucky break and broke it in two
Now what can be done for you
You broke it in two

Too many people sharing party lines
Too many people never sleepin’ late
Too many people paying parking fines
Too many hungry people losing weight

That was your first mistake
You took your lucky break and broke it in two
Now what can be done for you
You broke it in two

Too many people preaching practices
Don't let them tell you what you want to be
Too many people holding back
This is crazy
And baby, it's not like me

That was your last mistake
I find my love awake and waiting to be
Now what can be done for you
She's waiting for me

Let Me Roll It

Band on the Run
1973

You gave me something.
I understand,
You gave me loving in the palm of my hand

I can't tell you how I feel
My heart is like a wheel
LET ME ROLL IT
Let me roll it to you
Let me roll it
Let me roll it to you

I want to tell you
And now's the time
I want to tell you that
You're going to be mine

I can't tell you how I feel
My heart is like a wheel.
LET ME ROLL IT
Let me roll it to you
Let me roll it
Let me roll it to you

Live And Let Die

Live And Let Die [Single]
1973

When you were young and your heart was an open book
You used to say live and let live
You know you did
You know you did
You know you did
But if this ever changing world in which we live in
Makes you give in and cry

Say live and let die
Live and let die
Live and let die
Live and let die

What does it matter to ya?
When you got a job to do
You got to do it well
You gotta give the other fellow hell

You used to say live and let live
You know you did
You know you did
You know you did
But if this ever changing world in which we live in
Makes you give in and cry

Say live and let die

English Tea

Chaos and Creation in the Backyard
2005

Would you care to sit with me
For a cup of English tea
Very twee
Very me
Any sunny morning

What a pleasure it would be
Chatting so delightfully
Nanny bakes
Fairy cakes
Every Sunday morning

Miles and miles of English garden
Stretching past the willow tree
Lines of hollyhocks and roses
Listen most attentively

Do you know the game croquet
Peradventure we might play
Very gay
Hip hooray
Any sunny morning

Miles and miles of English garden
Stretching past the willow tree
Lines of hollyhocks and roses
Listen most attentively

As a rule the church bells chime
When it’s almost suppertime
Nanny bakes fairy cakes
On a Sunday morning

Mull of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre [Single]
1977

Mull of Kintyre

Oh mist rolling in from the sea

My desire is always to be here

Oh Mull of Kintyre


Far have I travelled and much have I seen

Dark distant mountains with valleys of green
Past painted deserts, the sunset's on fire

As he carries me home to the Mull of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre

Oh mist rolling in from the sea

My desire is always to be here

Oh Mull of Kintyre

Sweep through the heather like deer in the glen

Carry me back to the days I knew then
Nights when we sang like a heavenly choir

Of the life and the times of the Mull of Kintyre



Mull of Kintyre

Oh mist rolling in from the sea

My desire is always to be here

Oh Mull of Kintyre

Smiles in the sunshine and tears in the rain

Still take me back where my memories remain

Flickering embers grow higher and higher

As they carry me back to the Mull of Kintyre



Mull of Kintyre

Oh mist rolling in from the sea

My desire is always to be here

Oh Mull of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre

Oh mist rolling in from the sea

My desire is always to be here

Oh Mull of Kintyre

Save Us

NEW
2013

I can try to give you
Everything you ever wanted
You’re not hard to please
And the only thing I’m asking
In return is something
You can give with ease

Keep on sending your love
In the heat of battle
You got something that’ll
Save us, save us now

Got a feeling there’s a
Jungle rhythm beating in me
When I’m close to you
I don’t really want to
Ask too many favours, but there’s
Something you can do

Keep on sending your love
In the heat of battle
We got something that’ll
Save us, save us now

Oh oh oh oh you’re my woman
Oh oh oh oh keep it coming
Oh oh oh oh you’ve got something
That could save us, save us

Keep on sending your love
Oh oh oh oh
Cos in the heat of battle
You got something that’ll
Save us, save us now
Save us now
Save us now

Calico Skies

Flaming Pie
1997

It was written that I would love you
From the moment I opened my eyes
And the morning when I first saw you
Gave me life under calico skies
I will hold you for as long as you like
I'll hold you for the rest of my life

Always looking for ways to love you
Never failing to fight at your side
While the angels of love protect us
From the innermost secrets we hide
I'll hold you for as long as you like
I'll hold you for the rest of my life

Long live all of us crazy soldiers
Who were born under calico skies
May we never be called to handle
All the weapons of war we despise
I'll hold you for as long as you like
I'll hold you for the rest of my life
I'll hold you for as long as you like
I'll love you, for the rest of my…
For the rest of my life

You were standing with a bootleg in your hand
I took you back to my little place for a taste
Of a multi-coloured band.

We're gonna get hi, hi, hi, the night is young
She'll be my funky little mama
Gonna rock it and we've only just begun.

We're gonna get hi, hi, hi, with the music on.
Won't say bye-bye, bye-bye, bye-bye, bye-bye
'Til the night has gone
I'm gonna do it to you, gonna do it sweet banana
You'll never give up.
We're going to get hi, hi, hi, in the midday sun.

Well, well take off your face,
Recover from the trip you've been on

Get you ready for my polygon.

I'm gonna do it to you, gonna do it sweet banana,
You'll never give up
Yes! Go like a rabbit, gonna grab it,
Gonna do it 'til the night is done.

We're gonna get hi hi, hi, with the music on.

'Til the night has gone
I'm gonna do it to you, gonna do it, sweet banana
You'll never give up

Waterfalls

McCartney II
1980

Don't go jumping waterfalls
Please keep to the lake
People who jump waterfalls
Sometimes can make mistakes

And I need love, yeah I need love
Like a second needs an hour
Like a raindrop needs a shower
Yeah I need love every minute of the day
And it wouldn't be the same
If you ever should decide to go away

And I need love, yeah I need love
Like a castle needs a tower
Like a garden needs a flower
Yeah I need love every minute of the day
And it wouldn't be the same
If you ever should decide to go away

Don't go chasing polar bears
In the great unknown
Some big friendly polar bear
Might want to take you home

And I need love, yeah I need love
Like a second needs an hour
Like a raindrop needs a shower
Yeah I need love every minute of the day
And it wouldn't be the same
If you ever should decide to go away

Don't run after motor cars
Please stay on the side
Someone's glossy motor car
Might take you for a ride

And I need love, yeah I need love
Like a castle needs a tower
Like a garden needs a flower
Yeah I need love, said I need love
Like a raindrop needs a shower
Like a second needs an hour
Every minute of the day
And it wouldn't be the same
If you ever should decide to go away

Don't go jumping waterfalls
Please keep to the lake

Band on the Run

Band on the Run
1973

Stuck inside these four walls
Sent inside for ever
Never seeing no one, nice again,
Like you, mama
You, mama . . . you . . .

If I ever get out of here
Thought of giving it all away
To a registered charity
All I need is a pint a day
If I ever get out of here
(If we ever get out of here)

LINK

Well the rain exploded with a mighty crash
As we fell into the sun
And the first one said to the second one therew
I hope you're having fun.

Band on the run; band on the run
And the jailer man, and sailor Sam,
Were searching everyonew
For the band on the run . . .

Well, the undertaker drew a heavy sigh
Seeing no one else had come
And a bell was ringing in the village square
For the rabbits on the run,

Band on the run . . .

Well the night was falling
As the desert world began to settle down
In the town they're searching for us everywhere
But we never will be found

Band on the run; band on the run
And the county judge, who held a grudge
Will search for ever more,
FOR THE BAND ON THE RUN.

Arrow Through Me

Back To The Egg
1979

Ooh baby you couldn't
Have done a worse thing to me
If you'd have taken an arrow
And run it right through me
Ooh ooh baby a bird in the hand
Is worth two flying
But when it came to love
I knew you'd be lying

It could have been
A finer fling
Would have been a
Major attraction
With no other thing
Offering a
Note of distraction
Come on get up
Get under way
And bring your love

Ooh baby you wouldn't have
Found a more down hero
If you'd have started at nothing
And counted to zero

Ooh baby you couldn't
Have done a worse thing to me
If you'd have taken an arrow
And run it right through me

It could have been
A finer fling
Flying in a righter direction
With no other thing
Featuring but love and affection
Come on get up
Get under way
And bring your love

Ooh baby you wouldn't have
Found a more down hero
If you'd have started at nothing
And counted to zero

Every Night

McCartney
1970

Every night I just want to go out
get out of my head.
Every day I don't want to get up
get out of my bed.
Every night I want to play out
and Every day I want to do…
But tonight I just want to stay in
and be with you… and be with you.

Chorus. oo…

Every day I lean on a lampost
I'm wasting my time.
Every night I lay on a pillow
I'm resting my mind.
Every morning brings a new day
and Every night that day is through
But tonight I just want to stay in
and be with you…and be with you.

Chorus. oo…

Junior’s Farm

Junior’s Farm [Single]
1974

You should have seen me with the poker man
I had a honey and I bet a grand
Just in the nick of time I looked at his hand
I was talking to an Eskimo
Said he was hoping for a fall of snow
When up popped a sea lion ready to go

Let's go, let's go, let's go, let's go
Down to Junior's Farm where I want to lay low
Low life, high life, oh let's go
Take me down to Junior's Farm

At the Houses of Parliament
Ev'rybody's talking 'bout the President
We all chip in for a bag of cement
Ollie Hardy should have had more sense
He bought a gee-gee and he jumped the fence
All for the sake of a couple of pence

Let's go, let's go, let's go, let's go
Down to Junior's Farm where I want to lay low
Low life, high life, oh let's go
Take me down to Junior's Farm
Let's go, let's go
Down to Junior's Farm where I want to lay low
Low life, high life, oh let's go
Take me down to Junior's Farm
Everybody tag along

I took my bag into a grocer's store
The price is higher than the time before
Old man asked me why is it more
I said you should have seen me with the poker man
I had a honey and I bet a grand
Just in the nick of time I looked at his hand

Let's go, let's go, let's go, let's go
Down to Junior's Farm where I want to lay low
Low life, high life, oh let's go
Take me down to Junior's Farm

Let's go, let's go
Down to junior's farm where I want to lay low
Low life, high life, oh let's go
Take me down to Junior's Farm
Everybody tag along
Take me down to Junior's Farm

Take me back
Take me back
I want to go back

Band on the Run

Down in the jungle living in a tent
You don't use money you don't pay rent
You don't ever know the time
But you don't mind

Ho Hey Ho . . .

When your light is on the blink
You never think of worrying
What's the use of worrying?
When your bus has left the stop
You'd better drop your hurrying
What's the use of hurrying?
Leave me alone Mrs Vandebilt
I've got plenty of time of my own
What's the use of worrying?
What's the use of hurrying?
What's the use of anything?

Ho Hey Ho . . .

What's the use of worrying?
What's the use of hurrying?
What's the use of anything?

Ho Hey Ho . . .

When your pile is one the wane
You don't complain of robbery
Run away don't bother me
What's the use of worrying?
What's the use of anything?
Leave me alone Mrs. Washington
I've done plenty of time on my own

What's the use of worrying?
What's the use of hurrying? (no use!)
What's the use of anything?

My Valentine

Kisses On The Bottom
2012

What if it rained
We didn’t care
She said that someday soon the sun was gonna shine
And she was right, this love of mine
My valentine

As day and nights
Would pass me by
I’d tell myself that I was waiting for a sign
Then she appeared, a love so fine
My valentine

And I will love her for life
And I will never let a day go by
Without remembering the reasons why
She makes me certain that I can fly

And so I do
Without a care
I know that someday soon the sun is gonna shine
And she’ll be there, this love of mine
My valentine

Pipes of Peace

Pipes of Peace

I light a candle to our love
In love our problems disappear
But all in all we soon discover
That one and one is all we long to hear

All round the world
Little children being
Born to the world
Got to give them all we can
Til the war is won
Then will the work be done

Help them to learn
Songs of joy instead of
Burn baby burn
Let us show them how to play
The pipes of peace
Play the pipes of peace

Help me to learn
Songs of joy instead of
Burn baby burn
Won’t you show me how to play
The pipes of peace
Play the pipes of peace

What do you say?
Will the human race
Be run in a day?
Or will someone save
This planet we’re playing on
Is it the only one?
(What are we going to do?)

Help them to see
That the people here
Are like you and me
Let us show them how to play
The pipes of peace
Play the pipes of peace
Oo oo oo oo

I light a candle to our love
In love our problems disappear
But all in all we soon discover
That one and one is all we long to hear

The World Tonight

Flaming Pie
1997

I saw you sitting at the centre of the circle
Everybody, everybody wanted something from you
I saw you sitting there

I saw you swaying to the rhythm of the music
Caught you playing, caught you praying to the voice inside you
I saw you swaying there

I don't care what you want to be
I go back so far I'm in front of me!
It doesn't matter what they say
They're giving the game away

I can see the world tonight
Look into the future
See it in a different light
I can see the world tonight

I heard you listening to a secret conversation
You were crying, you were trying not to let them hear you
I heard you listening in

Never mind what they want to do
You've got a right to your point of view!
It doesn't matter what they say
They're giving the game away

I can see the world tonight
Look into the future
See it in a different light
I can see the world tonight

I can see the world tonight

I saw you hiding from a flock of paparazzi
You were hoping, you were hoping that the ground would swallow you
I saw you hiding there

I don't care what you want to be
I go back so far I'm in front of me!
It doesn't matter what they say
They're giving the game away

I can see the world tonight
Look into the future
See it in a different light
I can see the world tonight

Look into the future
I can see the world tonight
See it in a different light
I can see the world tonight
I can see the world tonight

Souvenir

Flaming Pie
1997

When you're fed up shedding too many tears
And your memories seem like just so many souvenirs
I will come to you to ease the pain

If you want me, tell me now
If I can be of any help, tell me how
Let me love you like a friend
Everything is gonna come right in the end

When you're crying like a poor little child
And you're feeling like you never could be reconciled
Don't forget a word of what I'm saying

If you want me, tell me now
If I can be of any help, tell me how
Let me love you like a friend
Everything is gonna come right in the end

Well, I can hold you too tight
I could never let you go
But that wouldn't be right
So, why don't you let me know (let me know)
What you want to do

Everybody's got a handful of fear
But tomorrow it may only be a souvenir
Of the way it was 'til it went away

If you want me, tell me now
If I can be of any help, tell me how
Let me love you like a friend
Every little thing is gonna come right in the end

Well, I can hold you too tight
I could never let you go
But that wouldn't be right
So, why don't you let me know
What you want to do

If you want me, tell me now
If I can be of any help, tell me how
Let me love you like a friend
Every little thing is gonna come right in the end

Fine Line

Chaos and Creation in the Backyard
2005

There is a fine line
Between recklessness and courage
It’s about time
You understood which road to take
It’s a fine line
And your decision makes a difference
Get it wrong you’ll be making a big mistake

Come home brother all is forgiven
We all cried when you were driven away
Come home brother everything is better
Everything is better when you come home to stay

Whatever’s more important to you
You’ve gotta choose what you want to do
Whatever’s more important to be
Well that’s the view that you got to see

There is a long way
Between chaos and creation
If you don’t say
Which one of these you’re going to choose
It’s a long way
And if every contradiction seems the same
It’s a game that your bound to lose

Come home brother all is forgiven
We all cried when you were driven away
Come home brother everything is better
Everything is better when you come home to stay

Come on back, Come on back, Come on back to me

Fine Line cont’d

It’s a fine line, It’s a fine line

And if I said
I really knew you well
What would your answer be?
If you were here today
Here today

Well knowing you
You’d probably laugh and say
That we were worlds apart
If you were here today
Here today

But as for me
I still remember how it was before
And I am holding back the tears no more
I love you

What about the time we met?
Well I suppose that you could say that
We were playing hard to get
Didn’t understand a thing
But we could always sing

What about the night we cried?
Because there wasn’t any reason left
To keep it all inside
Never understood a word
But you were always there with a smile

And if I say
I really loved you
And was glad you came along
Then you were here today
For you were in my song
Here today

Press

Press to Play
1986

Darling, I love you very, very, very much,
And I really am relying on your touch.
But with all these people listening in,
I don't know where I ought to begin.
Maybe we could hit upon a word,
Something that the others haven't heard,
When you want me to love you,
Just tell me to press.

Right there, that's it. Yes. When you feel the stress,
Don't just stand there, tell me to press.

You can give me what I want I must confess,
My body needs attention my mind is in a mess,
Oklahoma was never like this.
Never like this, it was never like this,
Ever like this, say was it ever like this?
Oklahoma was never like this.
It was never like this…

Darling, I know it really wouldn't be a crime,
If I say I want to love you all the time.
But with all these people listening in,
I don't know where I ought to begin.
Maybe we should have a secret code,
Before we both get ready to explode.
When you want me to love you,
Just tell me to press. Press…

Right there, that's it. Yes. When you feel the stress,
Don't just stand there. Won't you tell me to press?

Beautiful Night

Flaming Pie
1997

Someone's gone out fishing
Someone's high and dry
Someone's on a mission, to the lonely Lorelei
Some folk’s got a vision of a castle in the sky
And I'm left stranded, wondering why

You and me together
Nothing feels so good
Even if I get a medal from my local neighbourhood
I won't need a castle, they've got castles in Versailles
And I'm still stranded, wondering why

Make it a beautiful night for me
It's a beautiful night for love
A wonderful sight for lovers of love to behold
Make it a beautiful night for me
It's a beautiful night for love
A wonderful sight for lovers of love to behold

Some boat's on the ocean
We're here in this room
Seems to me the perfect way to spend an afternoon
We can look for castles, pretty castles in the sky
No more wondering, wondering why

Things can go wrong, things can go right
Things can go bump in the dead of the night
So let me be there, let me be there
Let me be there with you in the dead of the night

Make it a beautiful night for me
It's a beautiful night for love
A wonderful sight for lovers of love to behold
Make it a beautiful night for me
Such a beautiful night for love
Such a wonderful sight for lovers of love to behold

Yeah, it's a beautiful night
Yeah, it's a beautiful night

Yeah, beautiful night, beautiful night
It's such a beautiful night, beautiful night.

Tell him exactly what you're doing
Tell him what you do to me
Late at night when the wind is free
Girlfriend

Girlfriend I'm gonna show your boyfriend
Show him the letters I've been saving
Show him how you feel inside
Then our love couldn't be denied
And we're gonna have to tell him
You'll only be a girlfriend of mine

Till the river stops a-flowin'
Till the wind doesn't wanna blow
Till the flowers stop a-growin'
Till my love doesn't want to know

Girlfriend we'd better tell your boyfriend
Tell him exactly what we're doing
Tell him what he needs to know
Or he may never let you go
Yes, we're gonna have to tell him
You'll only be a girlfriend of mine

Till the rivers stops a-flowin'
Till the wind doesn't wanna blow
Till the flowers stop a-growin'
Till the ocean's a sea of snow

There were rules you never told me
Never came up with a plan
All the stories that you sold me
Didn’t help me understand
But I had to get it worked out
Had nobody who could help
So that in the end it turned out
That I had to do it by myself

Life’s a game
Rags from riches
Dogs and bitches
Hunt for fame
Difficult to know which way to turn

Lay the blame
On the snitches
Wicked witches
Fan the flame
Careful what you touch in case you burn

Without a shadow of a doubt
Cause you been putting it about
Hear the people shout
Hear the people shout
Hear the people shout

Queenie Eye, Queenie Eye
Who’s got the ball?
I haven’t got it
It isn’t in my pocket
O.U.T. spells out
That’s out
Without a shadow of a doubt
Cause you been putting it about
Hear the people shout
Hear the people shout
Hear the people shout

Win or lose, sink or swim
One thing is certain we'll never give in

Too Much Rain

Chaos and Creation in the Backyard
2005

Laugh when your eyes are burning
Smile when your heart is filled with pain
Sigh as you brush away your sorrow
Make a vow
That it’s not going to happen again
It’s not right, in one life
Too much rain

You know the wheels keep turning
Why do the tears run down your face
We used to hide away our feelings
But for now
Tell yourself it won’t happen again
It’s not right, in one life
Too much rain

It’s too much, for anyone
Too hard, for anyone
Who wants, a happy and peaceful life
You’ve got to learn to laugh

Smile when you’re spinning round and round
Sigh as you think about tomorrow
Make a vow
That you’re going to be happy again
It’s all right, in your life
No more rain

It’s too much, for anyone
Too hard, for anyone
Who wants, a happy and peaceful life
You’ve got to learn to laugh

Good Times Coming/Feel the Sun

Press to Play
1986

I was thinking about that summer so long ago,
Pack up your bags and yell “Geronimo.”
That was a golden summer. Wasn't it hot?
We laughed a lot that summer, laughed a lot.

Laughing at the good times coming,
Laughing at the good times coming in.
Good times coming,
Laughing at the good times coming in.

There was something about the weather, what can I say?
Nothing like any other holiday.
That was a silly season, was it the best?
We didn't need a reason, just a rest.

Happy at the good times coming,
Happy at the good times coming in.
Good times coming,
Happy at the good times coming in.

I'm loving you, I'm loving you, I'm loving you now.
I'm loving you, I'm loving you, I'm loving you now.

There was a golden summer before the war.
They laughed a lot that summer, lah de dah.

Laughing at the good times coming,
Laughing at the good times coming in.
Good times coming,
Laughing at the good times coming in.

Good times coming…good, good.
Good times coming in…good, good.
Good times coming…good, good.
Good times coming in…good, good.
Good times coming.
Good times coming in.

Feel the sun shine in, shine in, shine in.
Feel the sun shining in on you.
Feel the sun shine in, shine in, shine in.
Feel the sun shining in on you.

All the beauty, all the pain.
Will it ever be the same again?
If you love me, show me now.
It's the only way that we know how.

Feel the sun shine in, shine in, shine in.
Feel the sun shining in on you.
Feel the sun shine in, shine in, shine in.
Feel the sun shining in on you.

Goodnight Tonight

Goodnight Tonight (Single)
1979

Don't get too tired for love
Don't let it end
Don't say goodnight to love
It may never be the same again

Don't say it!
Don't say it!
Say anything but don't say goodnight tonight

Don't say it!
Don't say it!
Say anything but don't say goodnight tonight

Say anything but don't say goodnight tonight

Don't say it!

You can say anything but don't say goodnight tonight

Baby’s Request

Back To The Egg
1979

When the moon lays
His head on a pillow
And the stars settle
Down for a rest
Just do me one small favour
I beg you
Please play me
My baby's request

It's the song
That we heard
When we started
Now the birds have all
Flown from our nest
But you could bring back memories
Departed by playing
My baby's request

My baby said
That she knows
How it goes
But you're the one
That really knows
So go ahead
Just one more time and then
We'll go to bed

But you could bring back memories
Departed by playing
My baby's request

My baby said
That she knows
How it goes
But you're the one
That really knows
So go ahead
Just one more time and then
We'll go to bed

When the moon lays
His head on a pillow
And the stars settle
Down for a rest
Just do me one small favour
I beg you
Please play me
My baby's request

Hmm play me baby's request
Please play me my baby's request
One more time

With A Little Luck (DJ Edit)

London Town
1978

With a little luck we can help it out
We can make this whole damn thing work out
With a little love we can lay it down
Can't you feel the town exploding

There is no end to what we can do together
There is no end
The willow turns his back on inclement weather
And if he can do it, we can do it, just me and you

And a little luck, we can clear it up
We can bring it in for a landing
With a little luck we can turn it on
There can be no misunderstanding

There is no end to what we can do together
There is no end
The willow turns his back on inclement weather
We can do it, just me and you

With a little push, we could set it off
We can send it rocketing skywards
With a little love we could shake it up
Don't you feel the comet exploding?

With a little luck, with a little luck, with a little luck, a little luck, a little luck

With a little love we can lay it down
Can't you feel the town exploding
With a little push, we could set it off
We can send it rocketing skywards
With a little love we could shake it up
Don't you feel the comet exploding?

Little Willow

Flaming Pie
1997

Bend, little willow
Wind’s gonna blow you
Hard and cold tonight

Life, as it happens,
Nobody warns you
Willow, hold on tight

Nothing's gonna shake your love
Take your love away
No one's out to break your heart
It only seems that way… hey

Sleep little willow
Peace gonna follow
Time will heal your wounds

Grow to the heavens
Now and forever
Always came too soon

Little willow

Nothing's gonna shake your love
Take your love away
No one's out to break your heart
It only seems that way… hey

Bend, little willow
Wind's gonna blow you
Hard and cold tonight
Life, as it happens
Nobody warns you
Willow, hold on tight

Ah, little willow

Little willow

Only Mama Knows

Memory Almost Full
2007

Well I was found in the transit lounge
Of a dirty airport town
What was I doing on the road to ruin
Well my mama laid me down
My mama laid me down

Round my hand was a plastic band
With a picture of my face
I was crying, left to die in
This God forsaken place
This God forsaken place

Only mama knows why she laid me down
In this God forsaken town
Where she was running to, what she ran from
Though I always wondered I never knew
Only mama knows
Only mama knows

I’m passing through, I’m on my way
I’m on the road, no ETA.
I’m passing through, no fixed abode
And that is why I need to try
To hold on, I’ve gotta hold on, gotta hold on

Was it planned as a one night stand
Or did she leave in disgrace?
Well I never, will I ever
See my father’s face?
See my father’s face?

Only mama knows why she laid me down
In this God forsaken town
Where she was running to what she ran from
Though I always wondered I never knew
Only mama knows
Only mama knows

Only mama knows why she laid me down
In this God forsaken town
Where she was running to what she ran from
Though I always wondered I never knew
Only mama knows
Only mama knows
I’ve gotta hold on. I’ve gotta hold on. You’ve gotta hold on

Don't Let it Bring You Down

London Town
1978

Though some things in life are hard to bear
Don't let it bring you down

Should the sand of time run out on you
Don't let it bring you down

Don't go down - don't go underground
Things seem strange, but they change
How they change

Up and down your carousel will go
Don't let it bring you down

Don't go down - don't get out of town
Get to know how it goes, how it goes

When the price you have to pay is high
Don't let it bring you down

The Back Seat Of My Car

RAM
1971

Speed along the highway
Honey I want it my way
But listen to her daddy's song
Don't stay out too long
We’re just busy hiding
Sitting in the back seat of my car

Looking for a ride in a haul-about
Looking for a ride in and out of town
Stalling for a ride in a haul-about
Looking for a ride in and out

The lazy lights are pretty
We may end up in Mexico City
But listen to her daddy's song
Making love is wrong
Oo we’re just busy riding
Sitting in the back seat of my car

We was only hiding
Sitting in the back seat of my car

And when we finish driving
We can say we were late in arriving
And listen to her daddy's song
We believe that we can't be wrong
Ah we believe that we can't be wrong
Ah we believe that we can't be wrong

We can make it to Mexico City
Sitting in the backseat of my car

We believe that we can't be wrong
We believe that we can't be wrong
We believe that we can't be wrong
We believe that we can't be wrong
No no no
We believe that we can't be wrong

No More Lonely Nights

No More Lonely Nights (Single)
1984

I can wait another day until I call you
You've only got my heart on a string
And everything a' flutter

But another lonely night might take forever
We've only got each other to blame
It's all the same to me love
'Cause I know what I feel to be right

No more lonely nights
No more lonely nights
You're my guiding light
Day or night I'm always there

May I never miss the thrill of being near you
And if it takes a couple of years
To turn your tears to laughter
I will do what I feel to be right

No more lonely nights (Never be another)
No more lonely nights
You're my guiding light
Day or night I'm always there
And I won't go away until you tell me so
No, I'll never go away

Yes, I know what I feel to be right

No more lonely nights (Never be another)
No more lonely nights
You're my guiding light
Day or night I'm always there
And I won't go away until you tell me so
No, I'll never go away

And I won't go away until you tell me so
No I'll never go away

No more lonely nights

Great Day

Flaming Pie
1997

When you're wide awake
Say it for goodness sake,
It's gonna be a great day.
While you're standing there
Get up and grab a chair,
It's gonna be a great day.

And it won't be long, oh no
It won't be long, it won't be long, no no
It won't be long, it won't be long, oh no
It won't be long, it won't be long, ooh yeah

Ooh, ooh, yeah
Gonna be a great day

And it won't be long, oh no
It won't be long, it won't be long, no no
It won't be long, it won't be long, oh no
It won't be long, it won't be long, oh.

When you're wide awake
Say it for goodness sake,
It's gonna be a great day.
While you're standing there
Get up and grab a chair,
It's gonna be a great day.

Venus and Mars/Rock Show

Venus and Mars/Rock Show [Single]
1975

Sitting in the stand of the sports arena
Waiting for the show to begin
Red lights, green lights
Strawberry wine
A good friend of mine
Follows the stars –
Venus and Mars
are alright tonight

What’s that man holding in his hand?
He looks a lot like a guy I knew way back when
It’s silly willy with the Philly band
Could be….. Oo-ee…..
Tell me, what’s that man movin’ cross the stage?
It looks a lot like the one used by Jimmy Page
It’s like a relic from a different age
Could be….. Oo-ee…..

If there’s a ROCK SHOW
at the Concertgebouw
They’ve got long hair
at the Madison Square
You’ve got Rock and Roll
at the Hollywood Bowl
we’ll be there….
Oh yeah…
We’re going to the…

In my green metal suit
I’m preparing to shoot up the city
And the ring at the end of my nose
makes me look rather pretty
It’s a pity there’s nobody here
to witness the end. . . . .
Save for my dear old friend and confidante
Mademoiselle Kitty

What’s that man movin’ to and fro?
That decibel meter doesn’t seem to be reading low.
But they was louder at the Rainbow
Could be ¬– Oo-ee. . . . .

If there’s a ROCK SHOW
at the Concertgebouw
They’ve got long hair
at the Madison Square
You’ve got rock and roll
at the Hollywood Bowl
We’ll be there. . .
Oh yeah. . . . .

If there’s a ROCK SHOW…….. [Repeat]

Temporary Secretary

McCartney II
1980

Mister Marks can you find for me
Someone strong and sweet fitting on my knee
She can keep her job if she gets it wrong
Ah, but Mister Marks I won't need her long
All I need is help for a little while
We can take dictation and learn to smile
And a temporary secretary is what I need for to do the job

I need a
Temporary secretary, temporary secretaire
Temporary secretary, temporary secretary

Mister Marks could you send her quick
'Cause my regular has been getting sick

I need a
Temporary secretary, temporary secretary

Mister Marks I can pay her well
If she comes along and can stay a spell
I will promise now that I'll treat her right
And will rarely keep her 'til late at night

I need a…

She can be a belly dancer
I don't need a true romancer
She can be a diplomat
But I don't need a girl like that
She can be a neurosurgeon
If she's doin' nothin’ urgent,
What I need's a temporary, temporary secretary
I need a, I need a
Temporary secretary, temporary secretary
Temporary secretary, temporary secretary
Temporary secretary, temporary secretaire

Now Mister Marks when I send her back
Will you please make sure she stays on the right track

SPOKEN:
Well, I know how hard it is for young girls these days
in the face of everything to stay on the right track

What I need's a temporary, temporary secretary
Temporary secretary
I need a
Temporary secretaire, temporary secretary,
Temporary secretary
I need a
Temporary secretary, temporary secretary,
Temporary secretary,

Hope For The Future

Hope For The Future [Single]
2014

Some hope for the future
Some wait for the call
To say that the days ahead
Will be the best of all

We will build bridges
Up to the sky
Heavenly lights
Surrounding you and I

From out of the darkness
Our future will come
If we leave the past behind
We’ll fly beyond the sun

We’ll be together
Sharing the load
Watching in wonder
As our lives unfold

Hope for the future
It’s coming soon enough
How much can we achieve?
Hope for the future
It will belong to us
If we believe
If we believe

Hope shines brightest in the dark
Where nothing’s ever seen
Lighting undiscovered places
No one’s ever been

(Instrumental break)

Some hope for the future
Some wait for the call
To say that our destiny
Will be the best of all

And we will build bridges
Up to the sky
Heavenly lights
Surrounding you and I

Hope shines brightest in the dark
Where nothing’s ever seen
Lighting undiscovered places
No one’s ever been

Hope for the future
Hope for the future
Hope for the future

Junk

McCartney
1970

Motor cars, handle bars, bicycles for two,
Broken hearted jubilee.
Parachutes, army boots, sleeping bags for two,
Sentimental jamboree.

Chorus. “Buy, buy “, says the sign in the
shop window
Why, why ? says the junk in the yard.
Candlesticks, building bricks, something old
and new,
Memories for you and me.

Repeat Chorus “Buy, buy “, etc…
