#1       SOMETHING ABOUT THE ROAD 

            
CHORUS:  OH! THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT THE LURE OF THE ROAD,
                  ABOUT GOBBLING UP ALL YOU CAN FIND
                  ABOUT HAULING AWAY FROM YOUR HUMBLE ABODE,
                  ABOUT LEAVING BEHIND WHAT YOU LEFT BEHIND,
                  ABOUT LEAVING IT ALL BEHIND.

 

1)   ABOUT GOING WHERE YOU'VE NEVER BEEN,
      AND SEEING THINGS YOU'VE NEVER SEEN,
      AND DOING WHAT YOU HOPE TO DO,
      AND JOINING ALL OUTSIDE OF YOU.

 

2)   ABOUT ENGINES ROARING AND WIND RESISTING,
      AND STEERING, AND PASSING, AND STAYING ALERT,
      ABOUT WEATHER CONDITIONS, AND TIMING AND DISTANCE,
      ABOUT PLACES TO STOP, AND PLACES TO EAT.

CHORUS:

 

3)   ABOUT PACKING AND PLANNING, ARRANGING, PREPARING,
      EXCITEMENT, THE DANGER, AND DREAD,
      BUT MOSTLY ABOUT SELF-ASSURANCE AND DARING,
      THERE'S NOTHING ELSE LIKE THE ROAD AHEAD,


(TAG LINE:) THERE'S JUST SOMETHING ABOUT THE ROAD!

          #2      IN LOVE WITH LOVE   
     

1)    SOMETIME AGO WHEN I WAS YOUNG, I FELL IN LOVE WITH LOVE,
       A LOVE BY ROMANCE AND BY FAIRY TALES APPROVED,
       A LOVE ORDAINED BY CUPID AND BY ALL THE GODS ABOVE,
       A LOVE BY WHICH SO MANY FOOLS ARE MOVED.


2)    SOMETIME AGO WHEN I WAS YOUNG, I FELL IN LOVE WITH LOVE,
       AND LOVING LOVE TURNED OUT TO BE A CRUEL AND STUPID ROAD.
       SO MANY WRONG TURNS TURNED INTO SO MANY BROKEN HEARTS,
       TILL LOVE TO ME JUST SEEMED TO BE TOO HEAVY OF A LOAD.


3)    FORSAKING LOVE FOR FEAR THAT LOVE COULD ONLY CAUSE MORE PAIN,
       I TURNED TO FEARING LOVE, FORSAKING ALL THAT LOVE MIGHT GAIN,
       BUT STILL DOWN DEEP INSIDE WAS SOMETHING GNAWING AT MY BRAIN,
       AND TELLING ME THAT LOVE WAS WORTH A HUNDRED TRIES IN VAIN.

INTERLUDE: (PLAY & HUM ONE VERSE)

 

4)     I REALIZED THAT LOVING LOVE WAS NOT THE LOVE THAT'S TRUE.
        THAT ALL ALONG THE MERE IDEA OF LOVE IS JUST A SHOW

        LOVE IS NOT A THING YOU LOVE, BUT LOVE'S A THING YOU DO.

        AND FALLING OUT OF LOVE WITH LOVE... I FELL IN LOVE WITH YOU.
   
INTERLUDE: (PLAY & HUM ONE/HALF VERSE)

TAG: LOVE IS NOT A THING YOU LOVE, BUT LOVES A THING YOU DO

         AND FALLING OUT OF LOVE WITH LOVE, I FELL IN LOVE WITH YOU. 

 

SECOND ENDING: FALLNG OUT OF LOVE WITH LOVE, I FELL IN LOVE WITH YOU.

3)     THINGS ARE GONNA CHANGE       

 
1)  WE WAKE UP EVERY MORNING WONDERING IF ITS GONNA RAIN,
     WE HURRY THROUGH THE DAYS LIKE WE'RE ON A FAST TRACK TRAIN.
     SEE,  NOTHING CAN BE LOST 'CAUSE WE'VE GOT SO MUCH TO GAIN.
     DON'T LOOK NOW, CAUSE THINGS ARE GONNA CHANGE.
 
 
2)  LIFE IS FOR THE TAKING, NEVER THINKING WE MIGHT DIE,
     ITS ALL BEEN PLANNED BEFORE-HAND, WHY THINK WE HAVE TO TRY?
     ITS ALWAYS 'HEY, HOW ARE YA?', BUT DON'T CONSIDER THE GOODBYE,
     DON'T CLOSE YOUR EYES CAUSE THINGS ARE GONNA CHANGE.


CHORUS:

     WE SPEND OUR WHOLE LIVES LIVING LIKE TOMORROWS NEVER COME,
     AND WELL-MADE PLANS ARE CAST IN STONE, ITS WHAT WE'VE ALWAYS DONE,
     WE NEVER THINK TO COMPENSATE, TO PLAN, OR REARRANGE,
     THERE'S ONE SURE TRUTH BEFORE US, THOUGH.  THINGS ARE GONNA CHANGE.

3)  COUNTING IN YOUR COUNTING HOUSE YOU'RE PLEASED WITH LIFE ITS TRUE,
     IT SEEMS TO COME SO NATURALLY, WHAT'S MORE FOR YOU TO DO?
     WHO CARES ABOUT THE FUTURE, ITS NO CONCERN TO YOU.
     THE SKY MAY FALL AND THINGS ARE GONNA CHANGE.

CHORUS: (INSTRUMENTAL)
 
4)  POINTING LYING FINGERS, WHAT'S FALSE JUST MAY BE TRUE,
     ALL THEY SAY IS WRITTEN OFF, COULD BE TOMORROW'S NEWS.
     YOU THINK YOU'VE ESCAPED THE JUDGMENT, BUT IT COMES RIGHT BACK TO YOU,
     ITS FOR CERTAIN, THINGS ARE GONNA CHANGE.


CHORUS:


TAG:  THERE'S ONE THING FOR CERTAIN, THINGS ARE GONNA CHANGE.
          OH YEAH, THINGS ARE GONNA CHANGE.

                        #5              RISE UP, MY PEOPLE          
 
1)   HAVE YOU EVER STOPPED TO WONDER HOW THE SYSTEM REALLY WORKS?
      WHO BECOME EXECUTIVES, WHO BECOME THE CLERKS?
      WHO BECOME THE HEROES, AND WHO IS FACED WITH WOES?
      HAS ANYONE CONSIDERED HOW THE SYSTEM REALLY FLOWS?

2)   ITS ALL ABOUT DIVIDING ALL THE PEOPLE INTO GROUPS,

      AND ALL OF US FROM BIRTH TO DEATH ARE REALLY QUITE THE SAME.

3)  OH, NEVER ACCEPT THE LIMITS THE WORLD PLACES UPON YOU,

     OH NO, NEVER LET YOUR FELLOW MAN DICTATE WHAT YOU SHOULD BE!


CHORUS: RISE UP, MY PEOPLE, AND SHUN THIS SOUL-RESTRAINING LIMITATION,
                 RISE UP, MY CHILD AND DARE TO DREAM, TO REACH, TO HOPE, TO TRY.
                 RISE UP, DEAR FRIENDS, AND CHARGE AHEAD WITHOUT A HESITATION,
                 FOR EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US, THE LIMIT IS THE SKY!
                 FOR EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US, THE LIMIT IS THE SKY!

4)  NO, YOU'RE NOT A SHEEP AND YOU ARE NOT A SLAVE,
     NOT HERE TO BE WHAT OTHERS CRAVE.
     OF ALL THE TRUTHS, ONE WILL REMAIN.
     NO ONE CAN RULE ANOTHER'S BRAIN.

         # 6 ONE GIRL, ONE BOY


1)   FROM THE DAY WE ARRIVE THERE IS SOMETHING INSIDE,
      CALLING TO EVERYONE'S HEART.
      IT IS SO VERY STRONG, THOUGH THE WAITING IS LONG,
      TIL OUR LIFE IS PERMITTED TO START.

2)   WE ARE FULLY CONVINCED NOT A LIFE CAN COMMENCE,
      'TIL WE ANSWER THIS POWERFUL NEED.
      AND THE MOMENT WE DO, IS THE MOMENT WHEN TWO,
      OF THE SUFFERING HEARTS ARE FREED, ARE FREED,
      WHEN THE SUFFERING HEARTS ARE FREED

 CHORUS: OH THE ENDLESS DAYS THAT WE YEARN,
                  FOR THAT SOMETHING WE MISS TO RETURN,
                  MUST BE FILLED BY THAT ONE THING IN LIFE TO ENJOY,
                  ITS THE BLISS OF ONE GIRL AND ONE BOY.

3)   ITS NOT FAME! ITS NOT GOLD! ITS JUST SOMEONE TO HOLD,
      ITS NOT NEAR, ITS NOT FAR, ITS WHEREVER WE ARE.
      ITS NOT MANY OR FEW, BECAUSE JUST ONE WILL DO,
      BE NOT BRAZEN OR COY, JUST BE ONE GIRL, ONE BOY.


CHORUS:

4)   YOU MAY TRAVEL AROUND THE WORLD COMPLETE,
      YOU MAY WORK AT IT NIGHT AND DAY,
      YOU MAY GET TO KNOW ALL THE PEOPLE YOU MEET,
      BUT THERE IS STILL REALLY ONLY ONE WAY.

         #7 THE CHEROKEE ROSE 
 

 1)    FROM RED CLAY TO TAHLEQUAH THE CHEROKEE NATIONS,
        WERE DISPLACED BY INVADERS IN ENDLESS WAVES,
        FROM UNRESTRAINED FREEDOM TO SMALL RESERVATIONS,
        THEIR PATH CAN BE TRACED BY A TRAIL OF GRAVES,
        YES, THEIR PATH CAN BE TRACED BY A TRAIL OF GRAVES.

 
CHORUS:    OH, THEY ROAMED PROUD AND FREE FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS,
                    THEN WERE HERDED LIKE SHEEP ON THE TRAIL OF TEARS,
                    AND FOR EVERY TEAR SHED,  IN ITS PLACE THERE NOW GROWS,
                    A PRETTY WHITE FLOWER CALLED THE CHEROKEE ROSE.
                    A GOLD AND WHITE FLOWER CALLED THE CHEROKEE ROSE.

 
2)       IT WAS HIS LAND AND TREASURE TO HAVE AND TO HOLD,
          TILL THE STRANGERS BEGAN TO COVET HIS GOLD.
          THEN THE NATIVE AMERICAN WAS STALKED BY HIS FOES,
          AND WAS FORCED TO SET OUT ON A TRAIL OF WOES,
          HE WAS FORCED TO SET OUT ON A TRAIL OF  WOES!

       #8        POWER TO HEAL THE NATION

 
1)    EVERYONE DREAMS THEIR AMERICAN DREAMS,
       BUT AMERICA'S NEVER BEEN WHAT IT SEEMS.
       BEHIND ALL THE PROMISES, BEHIND ALL THE TALK,
       NOT VERY MANY ARE WALKING THE WALK.

 
CHORUS:    OH, ISN'T THERE SOMEONE WHO KNOWS WHAT TO DO,
                    SOMEONE TO RESCUE THE RED, WHITE AND BLUE,
                    SOMEONE WITH POWER TO HEAL THE NATION,
                    THE AMERICAN DREAMER WHO CAN MAKE IT COME TRUE?

 
2)    MOST OF US KNOW THAT JUST OUT OF SIGHT,
       IS A WHOLE OTHER WORLD WHERE NOTHING IS RIGHT,
       WHERE ITS DOG EAT DOG, AND CORRUPTION IS THRIVING,
       WHERE MOST OF THE PEOPLE ARE BARELY SURVIVING.
 
3)    WHERE THE GOOD MONEY COMES IN A BACK-ROOM DEAL,
       WHITE-COLLAR GANGS HAVE THE LICENSE TO STEAL,
       WHERE DRUGS ARE FLOWING AND MINDS ARE CRAZED,
       WHERE CHILDREN ARE BORN, BUT SELDOM ARE RAISED.

 

CHORUS:

4)    AND EVERY FOUR YEARS WE HOPE FOR A SAVIOR,
       TO SHOW UP AND ALTER THE NATION'S BEHAVIOR,
       A SAVIOR WITH NO HOPE TO EVER ACHIEVE,
       THE PROMISE WE WANTED SO MUCH TO BELIEVE.

 
5)    FOR ALL THOSE YEARS THE DREAM WAS WASTED,
       A DREAM SO SWEET WE COULD ALMOST TASTE IT,
       BUT THE SAVIOR IN FACT HAS ALWAYS EXISTED,
       WITH THE POWER TO HEAL, HE HAS FIRMLY RESISTED.

 
6)    FOR THE ONLY ONE WITH THE POWER TO HEAL,
       IS EACH OF US; ITS A POWER THAT'S REAL.
       ITS THE POWER OF CONSCIENCE, THE POWER OF RIGHT,
       ITS THE POWER OF COMPASSION, ITS THE POWER OF LIGHT.
       AND REGARDLESS OF HOW THINGS AROUND US MAY SEEM,
       ITS THE POWER TO LIVE THE AMERICAN DREAM.


CHORUS: (BEGIN WITH): "OH, WE  ARE THAT SOMEONE...

       AND NURTURED BY THE PULSE AND SOUNDS,
       OF NATURES ORCHESTRATIONS, MUSIC EVERYWHERE ABOUNDS,
       WHILE EACH, IN TURN, CONTRIBUTES PARTS.

3)    WHEN WORDS AND THOUGHTS UNITE WITH STRAINS,
       OF MELODY AND SWEET REFRAINS,

       TOUCHES SOULS, AND SOULS REVIVE, ENRAPTURED MOMENTS TO  RELIVE.
       THEN OH, HOW I LOVE MUSIC!

CHORUS: CAFÉ DU MONDE, WHERE THE MISSISSIPPI BENDS,
                 WHERE THE COFFEE AND BEIGNETS FLOW,

                 AND THE SUGAR IS POWDERED LIKE SNOW, WHITE LIKE SNOW,
                 AND ITS ALWAYS QUITE TEMPTING TO BLOW.

1)   THE HEART OF NEW ORLEENS, IS CALLED THE VIEUX CARRÉ.
      "OLD SQUARE" IS WHAT IT MEANS, IN ITS HEART LIES A CAFÉ.
      THE SMELL OF COFFEE BREWING AND THE CROWDS FROM DUSK TO DAWN,
      ARE AN EASY WAY TO FIND YOUR WAY TO THE CAFÉ DU MONDE.

2)   SINCE TIME BEGAN, OR LONGER, THE CAFÉ HAS BEEN THRIVING,
      ON VISITORS FROM OUT OF TOWN, OR RESIDENTS OUT DRIVING,
      AROUND THE CLOCK, THE PIGEONS FLOCK; AND SPARROWS UNDER TABLES,
      HOP, HOPING FOR A CRUMB TO DROP FROM WOMEN WEARING SABLES.

CHORUS:

2)   SOME ARE IN FINERY, AND SOME ARE JUST INFORMAL,
      FITTING IN IS EASY, AND IS ALL CONSIDERED NORMAL,
      THE THROBBING OF LIFE WILL DRAW YOU AROUND,
      "CAFÉ OF THE WORLD" IS THE "CAFÉ DU MONDE".

                     # 11   JUST A LITTLE GIRL

   
1)   OLD BAG LADY LIVING  ON THE STREET,
      EATING FROM THE GARBAGE, WITH NOTHING ON HER FEET,
      BUT TAKE ANOTHER LOOK PAST THE RAGGED CLOTHES AND GRIME,
      AND TRY TO SEE HER DIFFERENTLY AND AT A DIFFERENT TIME.

 

CHORUS: AND YOU'LL SEE JUST A LITTLE GIRL,
                 THERE GOES JUST A LITTLE GIRL,
                 WHEN YOU PEEL AWAY THE LAYERS OF PAIN,

                 OF INNOCENCE AND SWEETNESS,
                 OF SOMETHING GOOD, AND TRUE, AND KIND,

                 INSIDE -  THE LITTLE GIRL - IS ALWAYS THERE TO FIND.

2)    THE MOVIE STAR, THE MODEL, THE WORLD'S MOST FAMOUS FACE,
       SHE'S ADMIRED, AND PURSUED, ANYONE WOULD TAKE HER PLACE;
       BUT STOP TO TAKE A CLOSER LOOK, LOOK DEEPER THAN HER NAME,
       AND TRY TO SEE HER DIFFERENTLY WITHOUT HER RANK OR FAME.

 

CHORUS:

3)    PERHAPS SHE'S LOST HER FIGURE, SHE'S BEDRAGGLED, TIRED AND SAD,
       SHE'S GIVEN WITHOUT TAKING ALMOST EVERYTHING SHE HAD,
       HER GLOW IS JUST A SMOLDER NOW, WITHOUT DOUBT SHE'S OLDER NOW,
       BUT GIVEN JUST ANOTHER CHANCE, GIVEN JUST A SECOND GLANCE,

 

CHORUS:

4)    HOW CAN A WORLD, BEREFT OF LOVE FOR LITTLE GIRLS, SURVIVE?
       WHICH BURIES THEM, THEIR SMILES, THEIR CHARM, THEIR LOVELINESS, ALIVE?
       IGNORED, UNLOVED, USURPED, MISREAD, PUT DOWN, OPPRESSED, AND USED,
       ITS TIME WE PAID ATTENTION TO THE ONES SO LONG ABUSED.

1)    THE LAUGHING SEAGULL SOARING FREE, LOOKS UP INTO THE SKY,
       AND SEES THE METAL BIRDS OF MAN BURN TOXIC FUMES TO FLY,
       HE PONDERS ALL THE ASPECTS OF THE MAN-MADE FISHING BOAT,
       AND CHUCKLES TO HIMSELF THAT ALL HE HAS TO DO IS FLOAT.

 

2)    IN CLOUDS OF LAUGHING FELLOWS, HE FOLLOWS FISHING VESSELS,
       AND MEN WHO THINK HE'S BEGGING FOR CAST OFF FISHY MORSELS,
       BUT FISHING TO A BIRD AND ESPECIALLY TO GULLS,
       IS QUITE SIMPLE IN COMPARRISON TO HOW THE HUMAN CULLS.


CHORUS:  OH, HE SPREADS HIS WINGS AND RISES ON THE WINDS OF EVERY SEA,
                  THERE IS NO PORT HE CANNOT REACH, NO PLACE HE CANNOT BE.
                  HIS HOME IS NEAR THE WATER, HIS DAYS ARE EFFORT FREE,
                  HE LOVES SO MUCH THE SEAGULLS LIFE, AND HIS LAUGHTER PLEASES ME.


3)    THE FISHES IN THE WATERS OFF EVERY FOREIGN SHORE,
       PROVIDE HIM WITH HIS SUSTENANCE, NOW AND EVERMORE.
       HIS CLOTHING IS DISTINCTIVE AND ADAPTS TO EVERY CLIME,
       HE DOESN'T HAVE TO PUT IT ON AND TAKE IT OFF EACH TIME.

 

CHORUS:

TAG: HE LOVES SO MUCH THE SEAGULLS LIFE......
