Song Lyric Finder

Use the song lyric finder below as a map to get the words to your favorite song on past versions of the Calysto SteelBand SongList. These are the titles, credits and lyrics of the songs we played.

As well as the names of the artists whose recorded versions we most closely emulated.

A few of the songs in this song lyric finder were originally written in Spanish. In these cases, English song lyrics are provided when accessible.

Some artists are represented more than once. For example, you will find multiple Harry Belafonte lyrics and Santana lyrics below, but only one Shania Twain lyric.

Sometimes the lyrics for obscure Caribbean and Latin music are not published or available. The song lyric finder below will indicate this for you.

You will also see a note in the song lyric finder below if the selection is an instrumental. In that case it would not have lyrics.

Bear in mind, though, that Calysto was an instrumental band. So we played instrumental versions of all these selections.

Wanna to see the band in a Calgary night club? Check the upcoming performance schedule.

If you would like to hire the band, have a look at this sheet.

If you wanted to join the band? this was the page to see. It used to be a interesting learning experience guaranteed, but the Calysto Steelband is now retired for good.

Written by Steve Miller
Also made famous by Sugar Ray

I heat up, I can't cool down
You got me spinnin'
'round and 'round
'round and 'round and 'round it goes
Where it stops nobody knows

Every time you call my name
I heat up like a burnin' flame
Burnin' flame full of desire
Kiss me baby, let the fire get higher

Abra-abra-cadabra
I want to reach out and grab ya
Abra-abra-cadabra
Abracadabra

You make me hot, you make me sigh
You make me laugh, you make me cry
Keep me burnin' for your love
With the touch of a velvet glove

Abra-abra-cadabra
I want to reach out and grab ya
Abra-abra-cadabra
Abracadabra

I feel the magic in your caress
I feel magic when I touch your dress
Silk and satin, leather and lace
Black panties with an angel's face

I see magic in your eyes
I hear the magic in your sighs
Just when I think I'm gonna get away
I hear those words that you always say

Abra-abra-cadabra
I want to reach out and grab ya
Abra-abra-cadabra
Abracadabra

Every time you call my name
I heat up like a burnin' flame
Burnin' flame full of desire
Kiss me baby, let the fire get higher

I heat up, I can't cool down
My situation goes 'round and 'round
I heat up, I can't cool down
My situation goes 'round and 'round
I heat up, I can't cool down
My situation goes 'round and 'round

All that She Wants - Ace of Base.

Written by Jonas Berggren and Ulf Ekberg

She leads a lonely life
She leads a lonely life

When she woke up late in the morning
Light and the day had just begun
She opened up her eyes and thought
O' what a morning
It's not a day for work
It's a day for catching tan
Just laying on the beach and having fun
She's going to get you

All that she wants is another baby
She's gone tomorrow boy
All that she wants is another baby
All that she wants is another baby
She's gone tomorrow boy
All that she wants is another baby

All that she wants - all that she wants

So if you are in sight and the day is right
She's a hunter you're the fox
The gentle voice that talks to you
Won't talk forever
It's a night for passion
But the morning means goodbye
Beware of what is flashing in her eyes
She's going to get you

All that she wants...

Another Day in Paradise - Phil Collins.

Written by Phil Collins
Also made famous by Hank Marvin, Jam Tronik and Brandy

She calls out to the man on the street
"Sir, can you help me?
It's cold and I've nowhere to sleep,
Is there somewhere you can tell me?"

He walks on, doesn't look back
He pretends he can't hear her
Starts to whistle as he crosses the street
Seems embarrassed to be there

Oh, think twice, 'cause it's another day for
You and me in paradise
Oh, think twice, 'cause it's another day for you,
You and me in paradise

She calls out to the man on the street
He can see she's been crying
She's got blisters on the soles of her feet
She can't walk but she's trying

Oh, think twice,'cause it's another day for
You and me in paradise
Oh, think twice, it's just another day for you,
You and me in paradise

Oh lord, is there nothing more anybody can do
Oh lord, there must be something you can say

You can tell from the lines on her face
You can see that she's been there
Probably been moved on from every place
But she didn't fit in there

Oh, think twice,'cause it's another day for
You and me in paradise
Oh think twice, it's just another day for you,
You and me in paradise

It's just another day for you and me in paradise
It's just another day for you and me in paradise

Barbados National Anthem.

Written by Van Roland Edwards and Irving Louis Burgie

Barbados

In plenty and in time of need
When this fair land was young
Our brave forefathers sowed the seed
From which our pride has sprung
A pride that makes no wanton boast
Of what it has withstood
That binds our hearts from coast to coast
The pride of nationhood

chorus
We loyal sons and daughters all
Do hereby make it known
These fields and hills beyond recall
Are now our very own
We write our names on history's page
With expectations great
Strict guardians of our heritage
Firm craftsmen of our fate

The Lord has been the people's guide
For past three hundred years.
With Him still on the people's side
We have no doubts or fears.
Upward and onward we shall go,
Inspired, exulting, free,
And greater will our nation grow
In strength and unity.

Brown Eyed Girl - Van Morrison.

Written by Van Morrison
Also made famous by Johnny Rivers, Steel Pulse, El Chicano and Jimmy Buffett

Hey where did we go,
Days when the rains came
Down in the hollow,
Playin' a new game,
Laughing and a running hey, hey
Skipping and a jumping
In the misty morning fog with
Our hearts a thumpin' and you
My brown eyed girl,
You my brown eyed girl.

Whatever happened
To Tuesday and so slow
Going down the old mine
With a transistor radio
Standing in the sunlight laughing,
Hiding behind a rainbow's wall,
Slipping and sliding
All along the water fall, with you
My brown eyed girl,
You my brown eyed girl.

Do you remember when we used to sing,
Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da

So hard to find my way,
Now that I'm all on my own.
I saw you just the other day,
My how you have grown,
Cast my memory back there, Lord
Sometime I'm overcome thinking 'bout
Making love in the green grass
Behind the stadium with you
My brown eyed girl
You my brown eyed girl

Do you remember when we used to sing
Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da.

Wise men say only fools rush in
But I can't help falling in love with you

Darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be
Take my hand, take my whole life too
For I can't help falling in love with you

Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be
Take my hand, take my whole life too
For I can't help falling in love with you
For I can't help falling in love with you

Careless Whisper - Wham! (George Michael)

Written by George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley
Also made famous by George Michael and Richard Clayderman

I feel so unsure,
As I take your hand and lead you to the dance floor.
As the music dies...
Something in your eyes,
Calls to mind a silver screen,
And all those sad goodbyes.

Chorus
I'm never gonna dance again,
Guilty feet have got no rhythm.
Though it's easy to pretend,
I know you're not a fool.

I should have no better than to cheat a friend,
And waste the chance that I'd been given.
So I'm never gonna dance again,
The way I danced with you.
Chorus

Time can never mend,
The careless whispers of a good friend.
To the heart and mind,
If your answer's kind...
There's no comfort in the truth,
Pain is all you'll find.

Repeat chorus

What am I without your love?

Tonite the music seems so loud,
I wish that we could lose the crowd.
Maybe it's better this way,
We'd hurt each other with the things we want to say.

We could have been so good together,
We could have made this last forever...
But now, who's gonna dance with me?
Please stay.
(alternatively):
And now it's never gonna be
That way...

Repeat chorus

Now that you're gone...
Now that you're gone...
Now that you're gone...
Was what I did so wrong?
So wrong that you had to leave me alone?

Caribbean Queen (No more Love on the Run) - Billy Ocean.

Written by Keith Diamond and Billy Ocean

She dashed by me in painted on jeans
And all heads turned
'Cause she was the dream
In the blink of an eye
I knew her number and her name yeah
She said I was the tiger
She wanted to tame

Caribbean queen
Now we're sharing the same dream
And our hearts they beat as one
No more love on the run

I lose my cool
When she steps in the room
And I get so excited
Just from her perfume
Electric eyes that you can't ignore
And passion burns you like never before

I was in search of a good time
Just running my game, yeah
Love was the furthest
Furthest from my mind

Caribbean queen
Now we're sharing the same dream
And our hearts they beat as one
No more love on the run

Caribbean queen
Now we're sharing the same dream
And our hearts they beat as one
No more love on the run

[Instrumental Interlude]

Caribbean queen
Now we're sharing the same dream
And our hearts they beat as one
No more love on the run

Caribbean queen
Now we're sharing the same dream
And our hearts they beat as one
No more love on the run

Carioca - Mel Torme.

Written by Edward Eliscu, Gus Khan and Vincent Youmans
Also made famous by Artie Shaw and his Orchestra, Buddy Rich, Tito Puente
Les Paul & Mary Ford and Orquestra Romantica del Casino de Hawana

Say, have you seen a Carioca?
It's not a foxtrot or a polka
It has a little bit of new rhythm
A blue rhythm that sighs
It has a meter that is tricky
A bit of wicked wacky-wicky
But when you dance it with a new love
There's a true love in her eye

You dream of a new Carioca
Its theme is a kiss and a sigh
You dream of a new Carioca
When music and lights are gone we say goodbye

Two heads together, they say are better than one
Two heads together, that's how the dance is begun
Two arms around you and lips
That's why I'm yours and you are mine
And you are mine

Now that you've done the Carioca
You'll never care to do the Polka
And then you'll realize the blue hula And bamboola are through

Tomorrow morning you'll discover
You're just a Carioca lover
And when you dance it with each new love
There'll be true love just for you

Now you'll dream of a new Carioca
Its theme is a kiss and a sigh
You'll dream of a new Carioca
When music and lights are gone and we're saying goodbye
Goodbye

Copacabana - Barry Manilow.

Written by Jack Feldman, Barry Manilow, Bruce Sussman


Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl
with yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there
she would merengue and do the cha-cha
and while she tried to be a star
Tony always tended bar
across the crowded floor, they worked from 8 til 4
they were young and they had each other
who could ask for more?

CHORUS:

At the copa (CO!) Copacabana (Copacabana)
the hottest spot north of Havana (here)
at the copa (CO!) Copacabana
music and passion were always in fashion
At the copa.... they fell in love

His name was Rico
he wore a diamond
he was escorted to his chair, he saw Lola dancing there
and when she finished,he called her over
but Rico went a bit to far
Tony sailed across the bar
and then the punches flew and chairs were smashed in two
there was blood and a single gun shot
but just who shot who?

REPEAT CHORUS

At the copa... she lost her love

Her name is Lola, she was a showgirl,
but that was 30 years ago, when they used to have a show
now it's a disco, but not for Lola,
still in the dress she used to wear,
faded feathers in her hair
she sits there so refined,and drinks herself half-blind
she lost her youth and she lost her Tony
now she's lost her mind

REPEAT CHORUS

At the copa... don't fall in love
don't fall in love

Spanish:
En el barrio La Cachimba se ha formado la corredera.
Allá fueron los bomberos con sus campanas, sus sirenas.
Allá fueron los bomberos con sus campanas, sus sirenas.
Ay mama, ¿qué pasó... Ay mama, ¿qué pasó?
El cuarto de Tula, le cogió candela
Se quedó dormida y no apagó la vela.
¡Que llamen a Ibrahim Ferrer, que busquen los bomberos!
Que yo creo que Tula lo que quiere es que le apaguen el fuego.
Ay, por ahí viene Eliades, en tremenda corredera
Viene a observar el cuarto de Tula que ha cogido candela.
Carlo' y Marco' están mirando este fuego
Si ahora no se apaga se apaga luego.
Puntillita ve y busca a Marco', pa' que busque al Sierra Maestra.
Que vengan para acá rapido que La Tula, mira cogió candela.
Ey Marcos, coge pronto el cubito y no te quedé allá fuera.
Llénalo de agua y ven a apagar el cuarto de Tuly que ha cogido candela.
Tula está encendida llama¡ a los bomberos
Tu eres candela¡ afina los cueros!
Candela, muchacho
Se volvió loco, Barbarito, ¡Ay qué interesante!

There's a real commotion going on in Cachimba.
The firemen have arrived with bells ringing and sirens blaring.
The firemen have arrived with bells ringing and sirens blaring.
Oh mama, what happened? Ohh mama, what happened?
It's Tula's bedroom, it's gone up in flames
She fell asleep and didn't blow out the candle.
Call Ibrahim Ferrer, call the fire-brigade!
I think Tula wants them to put out her fire.
Oh, here comes Eliados amid the commotion
He's come to see Tula's bedroom in flames.
Carlo' and Marco' are watching the fire,
If it isn't put out now, it will go out later.
Puntillita go and get Marco' so he can call Sierra Maestra.
Tell them to come quickly, look Tula's on fire.
Hey, Marco'! Quick get a bucket, don't hang around out there.
Fill it with water, come and put out the fire in Tula's bedroom.
Tula is on fire, call the fire-brigade

Girl it's been a long, long time comin', yes it has

It feels like springtime in winter
It feels like Christmas in June
It feels like heaven has opened up it's gates for me and you

That someone like you loves me too

Girl I think that you're truly somethin', yes you are
And you're, you're every bit of a dream come true, yes you are
With you baby, it never rains
And it's no wonder
The sun always shines when I'm near you
It's just blessing that I have found somebody like you
Ooh Oh

To think of all the nights I've cried myself to sleep
You really oughta know how much you mean to me
It's only right, it's only right
(In my life) that you be in my life right here with me
Oh baby, baby, yeah

Evil Ways - Santana.

Written by Sonny Henry and Zoe Jack
Also made famous by Cal Tjader and Willie Bobo

You've got to change your evil ways, baby,
before I stop lovin' you.
You've got to change, baby,
and every word that I say is true.
You got me runnin' and hidin' all over town,
you got me sneakin' and a-peepin' and runnin' you down.
This can't go on, Lord knows you got to change, baby.

When I come home, baby,
my house is dark and my pots are cold.
You're hangin' round, baby,
with Jean and Joan and-a who knows who.
I'm gettin' tried of waitin' and foolin' around,
I'll find somebody who won't make me feel like a clown.
This can't go on, Lord knows you got to change, baby.

When I come home, baby,
my house is dark and my pots are cold.
You're hangin' round, baby,

Sweat - Inner Circle.

Often miscredited as "I want to make you sweat" and by UB40

I've been watching you

A lalalala long, a lalalala long long li long long long, c'mon
A lalalala long, a lalalala long long li long long long, hey

Standing across the room
I saw you smile
Said I want to talk to you-oo-oo
For a little while
But before I make my move
My emotions start running wild
My tongue gets tied
And that's no lie

Looking in your eyes
Looking in your big brown eyes
Ooh yeah
And I've got this to say to you
Hey!

Girl I want to make you sweat
Sweat till you can't sweat no more
And if you cry out
I'm gonna push it some, mo-o-ore
Girl I want to make you sweat
Sweat till you can't sweat no more
And if you cry out
I'm gonna push it
Push it, push it some more

C'mon!

Ooh

So I said to myself
"Does she love me or not?"

But the dreads done know
That love is his to get
With a little bit of this
And a little bit of that
the lyrics goes on the attack
My tongue gets tied
And that's no lie

Looking in your eyes
Looking in your big brown eyes
Ooh girl
And I've got this to say to you
Hey!

Girl I want to make you sweat
Sweat till you can't sweat no more
And if you cry out
I'm gonna push it some mo-o-ore
Girl I want to make you sweat

Push it, push it some more

I Just Called to Say I Love You - Stevie Wonder.

Written by Stevie Wonder
Also made famous by The Mantovani Orchestra and Richard Clayderman

No New Year's day to celebrate,
No chocolate covered candy hearts
To give away,
No first of spring,
No song to sing,
In fact, here's just another
Ordinary day.

I just called to say I love you;
I just called to say how much I care;
I just called to say I love you,
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart.

No April rain,
No flowers' bloom,
No wedding Saturday
Within the month of June.
But what it is is
Something true

Made up of these three words
That I must say to you.

No summer's high, no warm july,
No harvest moon to light
One tender august night,
No autumn breeze,
No falling leaves,
Not even time for birds
To fly to southern skies.

No Libra sun, no Halloween,
No giving thanks
For all the Christmas joy you bring,
But what it is,
So old, so new,
To fill your heart
Like no three words could ever do.

This selection is more well known as an instrumental

Who's the lovin' daddy with the beautiful eyes
What a pair o' lips, I'd like to try 'em for size
I'll just tell him, "Baby, won't you swing it with me"
Hope he tells me maybe, what a wing it will be
So, I said politely "Darlin' may I intrude"
He said "Don't keep me waitin' when I'm in the mood"

First I held him lightly and we started to dance
Then I held him tightly what a dreamy romance
And I said "Hey, baby, it's a quarter to three
There's a mess of moonlight, won't-cha share it with me"
"Well" he answered "Baby, don't-cha know that it's rude

To keep my two lips waitin' when they're in the mood"

In the mood, that's what he told me
In the mood, and when he told me
In the mood, my heart was skippin'
It didn't take me long to say "I'm in the mood now"

In the mood for all his kissin'
In the mood his crazy lovin'
In the mood what I was missin'
It didn't take me long to say "I'm in the mood now"

Island in the Sun - Harry Belafonte.

Written by Harry Belafonte and Lord Burgess

National Flag of Barbados


This is my island in the sun
Where my people have toiled since time begun
I may sail on many a sea
Her shores will always be home to me

Oh, island in the sun
Willed to me by my father's hand
All my days I will sing in praise
Of your forest, waters, your shining sand

As morning breaks the heaven on high
I lift my heavy load to the sky
Sun comes down with a burning glow
Mingles my sweat with the earth below

Oh, island in the sun
Willed to me by my father's hand
All my days I will sing in praise
Of your forest, waters, your shining sand

I see woman on bended knee
Cutting cane for her family
I see man at the waterside
Casting nets at the surging tide

Oh, island in the sun
Willed to me by my father's hand
All my days I will sing in praise
Of your forest, waters, your shining sand

I pray the day will never come
When I can't awake to the sound of drum
Never let me miss carnival
With calypso songs philosophical

Oh, island in the sun
Willed to me by my father's hand
All my days I will sing in praise
Of your forest, waters, your shining sand

Jamaica Farewell - Harry Belafonte.

Written by Lord Burgess and Shari
Also made famous by Hank Snow, Jimmy Buffett and Desmond Dekker

Down the way where the nights are gay
and the sun shines daily on the mountain's top

I took a trip on a sailing ship

and when I reached Jamaica I made a stop.

And I'm sad to say
I'm on my way

won't be back for many a day

my heart is down
my head is burning around

I've had to leave a little girl in the Kingston town.

Down at the market you can hear
ladies cry out while on their heads they bear
Akkisai sort fish are nice

and the rhum are fine every time a year.

And I'm sad to say
I'm on my way

won't be back for many a day

my heart is down
my head is burning around

I've had to leave a little girl in the Kingston town.

Sounds of laughter every where
and the dancing girl swinging two and fro

I must declare my head is there

though I been from maine to Mexico.

And I'm sad to say
I'm on my way

won't be back for many a day

my heart is down
my head is burning around

I've had to leave a little girl in the Kingston town.

Written by Chuck Berry
Also made famous by Johnny Winter, Peter Tosh, Buck Owens, The Sex Pistols,
Elvis Presley, The Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, Bill Haley & his Comets,
Jim and Jesse, Jerry Lee Lewis, Freddie & the Dreamers and the Beach Boys

Deep down in Louisiana, close to New Orleans,
Way back up in the woods among the evergreens,
There stood a log cabin made of earth and wood
Where lived a country boy named Johnny B. Goode
Who never ever learned to read or write so well?
But he could play the guitar just like a ringin' a bell.

Chorus:
Go! Go! Go, Johnny, go! go!
Go, Johnny, go! go!
Go, Johnny, go! go!
Go, Johnny, go! go! Johnny B. Goode

He used to carry his guitar in a gunnysack,
Go sit beneath the tree by the railroad track.
Old engineers would see him sittin' in the shade,
Strummin' with the rhythm that the drivers made.
When people passed him by they would stop and say,
'Oh, my but that little country boy could play'

Chorus

His mother told him, 'someday you will be a man,
You will be the leader of a big ol' band.
Many people comin' from miles around
Will hear you play your music when the sun go down.
Maybe someday your name'll be in lights,
Sayin' 'Johnny B. Goode tonight''

La Isla Bonita - Madonna.

Written by Bruce Gaitsch, Patrick Leonard and Madonna


(Spoken:)
Como puede ser verdad
[or Como puede ese olvidar]

Last night I dreamt of San Pedro
Just like I'd never gone, I knew the song
A young girl with eyes like the desert
It all seems like yesterday, not far away

Chorus:

Tropical the island breeze
All of nature wild and free
This is where I long to be
La isla bonita
And when the samba played
The sun would set so high
Ring through my ears and sting my eyes
Your Spanish lullaby

I fell in love with San Pedro
Warm wind carried on the sea, he called to me
Te dijo te amo
I prayed that the days would last
They went so fast

(chorus)

I want to be where the sun warms the sky
When it's time for siesta you can watch them go by
Beautiful faces, no cares in this world
Where a girl loves a boy, and a boy loves a girl

Last night I dreamt of San Pedro
It all seems like yesterday, not far away

(chorus twice)

La la la la la la la
Te dijo te amo
La la la la la la la
El dijo que te ama

Also made famous by Jackie Wilson, Amii Stewart, Minnie Riperton, Woody Herman,
Al Green, Jose Feliciano and Shirley Bassey

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn't get much higher
Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire

Time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire
Try now we can only lose
And our love become a funeral pyre

Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire

Aouh, come on!
Come on, babe!

Yeah! come on!
Come on!

Woaouh! yeah!

It was the greatest night of my life.
Although I still had not found a wife
I had my friends
Right there beside me.
We were close together.
We tripped the wall, we scaled the graveyard
Ancient shapes were all around us.
The wet dew felt fresh beside the fog.
Two made love in an ancient spot
One chased a rabbit into the dark
A girl got drunk and balled the dead
And I gave empty sermons to my head.
Cemetary, cool and quiet
Hate to leave your sacred lay
Dread the milky coming of the day.

Ah, ah, ah, ah!
Ah, ah, ah, ah!
Ah, ah, ah, ah!
Ah, ah, ah, ah!
Ah, ah, ah, ah!
Ah, ah, ah, ah!
Ah, ah, ah, ah!
Aah, aah, aah, aah, aah
Aah, aah, aah, aaah!

Time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire
Try now we can only lose
And our love become a funeral pyre

Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire

Know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn't get much higher

Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire
Try to set the night on fire
Try to set the night on fire
Try to set the night on fire!

She's got a new addiction for every day and night.

She'll make you take your clothes off and go dancing in the rain.
She'll make you live her crazy life but she'll take away your pain
like a bullet to your brain. Come On!

[CHORUS:]
Upside, inside out she's livin la vida loca
She'll push and pull you down, livin la vida loca
Her lips are devil red and her skin's the color mocha
She will wear you out livin la vida loca Come On!
Livin la vida loca, Come on!
She's livin la vida loca.

Woke up in New York City in a funky cheap hotel
She took my heart and she took my money
she must've slipped me a sleeping pill
She never drinks the water and makes you order French Champagne
Once you've had a taste of her you'll never be the same
Yeah, she'll make you go insane.

[CHORUS]

She'll make you take your clothes off and go dancing in the rain.
She'll make you live her crazy life
but she'll take away your pain like a bullet to your brain. Come On!

Master Blaster - Stephen Marley.

Written by Stevie Wonder

Everyone's feeling pretty
It's hotter than July
Though the world's full of problems
They couldn't touch us even if they tried
From the park I hear rhythms
Marley's hot on the box
Tonight there will be a party
On the corner at the end of the block

Didn't know you
Would be jammin' until the break of dawn
I bet nobody ever told you that you
would be jammin' until the break of dawn
You would be jammin' and jammin' and jammin', jam on

They want us to join their fighting
But our answer today
Is to let all our worries
Like the breeze through our fingers slip away
Peace has come to Zimbabwe
Third World's right on the one
Now's the time for celebration
'Cause we've only just begun

Didn't know that you
Would be jammin' until the break of dawn
Bet you nobody ever told you that you
Would be jammin' until the break of dawn
You would be jammin' and jammin' and jammin', jam on
Bet you nobody ever told you that you
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master blaster jammin')
Would be jammin' until the break of dawn
I know nobody told you that you
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master blaster jammin')
Would be jammin' until the break of dawn
We're jammin', jammin', jammin', jam on

You ask me am I happy
Well as matter of fact
I can say that I'm ecstatic
'Cause we all just made a pact
We've agreed to get together
Joined as children in Jah
When you're moving in the positive
Your destination is the brightest star

You didn't know that you
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master blaster jammin')
Would be jammin' until the break of dawn
I bet you nobody ever told you that you
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master blaster jammin')
Would be jammin' until the break of dawn
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, you
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master blaster jammin')
Would be jammin' until the break of dawn
Don't you stop the music, oh no,
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master blaster jammin')
Na, na na...
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master blaster jammin')
Nobody told you Oh, Oh, Oh, you
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master blaster jammin')
Would be jammin' until the break of dawn
I bet you if someone approached you
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master blaster jammin')
yesterday to tell you that you would be jammin'
you would not believe it because you never thought that you would be jammin'
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh,
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master blaster jammin')
jammin' 'til the break of dawn
Oh, Oh, Oh, You may as well believe what you are feeling
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master blaster jammin')
because you feel your body jammin'
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master blaster jammin')
Oh, Oh, you would be jammin' until the break of dawn
(We're in the middle of the makin's of the master blaster jammin')

Moondance - Van Morrison.

Written by Van Morrison
Also made famous by Nana Mouskouri

Well, it's a marvelous night for a Moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
'Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I'm trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
And all the night's magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush

Chorus:
Can I just have one a' more Moondance with you, my love
Can I just make some more romance with a-you, my love

Well, I wanna make love to you tonight
I can't wait 'til the morning has come
And I know that the time is just right
And straight into my arms you will run
And when you come my heart will be waiting
To make sure that you're never alone
There and then all my dreams will come true, dear
There and then I will make you my own
And every time I touch you, you just tremble inside
And I know how much you want me that you can't hide

Chorus

Repeat 1st Verse

One more Moondance with you in the moonlight
On a magic night
La, la, la, la in the moonlight
On a magic night
Can't I just have one more dance with you my love

I've got sunshine on a cloudy day.

I guess you'd say
What can make me feel this way?
My girl (my girl, my girl)
Talkin' 'bout my girl (my girl).

I've got so much honey the bees envy me.
I've got a sweeter song than the birds in the trees.
I guess you'd say
What can make me feel this way?
My girl (my girl, my girl)
Talkin' 'bout my girl (my girl).

Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
Ooooh.

I don't need no money, fortune, or fame.
I've got all the riches baby one man can claim.
I guess you'd say
What can make me feel this way?
My girl (my girl, my girl)
Talkin' 'bout my girl (my girl).

I've got sunshine on a cloudy day

My Love is Your Love - Whitney Houston.

Written by Jerry Duplessis and Wyclef Jean

(clap your hands, y'all it's alright....)

If tomorrow is judgement day (sing mommy)
And I'm standin' on the front line
And the lord ask me what I did w/ my life
I will say I spent it with you

If I wake up in ww 3
I see destruction and poverty
And I feel like I want to go home
It's okay if youcommin' with me

Cause your love is my love
And my love is your love
It would take an eternity to break us
And the chains of amistad couln't hold us

If I lose my fame and fortune
And I'm homeless on the street
And I'm sleepin' in grand central station
It's okay if you're sleepin' with me

As the years they pass us by
We stay young through eachother's eyes
And no matter how old we get
It's okay as long as I got you babe

Chorus

If I should die this very day
Don't cry, cause on earth we wasn't meant to stay
And no matter what people day
I'll be waiting for you after jusdement day

One of these Nights - The Eagles.

Written by Glenn Frey and Don Henley

One of these nights
One of these crazy old nights
We're gonna find out
Pretty mama
What turns on your lights
The full moon is calling
The fever is high
And the wicked wind whispers
And moans

You got your demons
You got desires
Well, I got a few of my own

Oo, someone to be kind to in
Between the dark and the light
Oo, coming right behind you
Swear I'm gonna find you
One of these nights

One of these dreams
One of these lost and lonely dreams
We're gonna find one
One that really screams

I've been searching for the daughter
Of the devil himself
I've been searching for an angel in white
I've been waiting for a woman who's a little
Of both
And I can feel her but she's nowhere
In sight

Oo, loneliness will blind you
In between the wrong and the right
Oo, coming right behind you
Swear I'm gonna find you
One of these nights

One of these nights
In between the dark and the light
Coming right behind you
Swear I'm gonna find you
Get 'ya baby one of these nights
One of these nights
One of these nights
I can feel it
I can feel it
One of these nights
Coming right behind you
Swear I'm gonna find you now
One of these nights.

By the time I get to Phoenix she'll be rising
She'll find the note I left hangin' on her door
She'll laugh when she reads the part that says I'm leavin'
'Cause I've left that girl so many times before

By the time I make Albuquerque she'll be working
She'll prob'ly stop at lunch and give me a call
But she'll just hear that phone keep on ringin'
Off the wall that's all

By the time I make Oklahoma she'll be sleepin'
She'll turn softly and call my name out loud
And she'll cry just to think I'd really leave her
Tho' time and time I try to tell her so
She just didn't know I would really go.

Por Una Cabeza - Carlos Gardel.

Written by Carlos Gardel, Alfredo LePara
Also made famous by Los Pericos

Spanish:
Por una cabeza de un noble potrillo
que justo en la raya afloja al llegar
y que al regresar parece decir:
no olvides, hermano,
vos sabes, no hay que jugar...
Por una cabeza, metejon de un dia,
de aquella coqueta y risueña mujer
que al jurar sonriendo,
el amor que esta mintiendo
quema en una hoguera todo mi querer.

Por una cabeza
todas las locuras
su boca que besa
borra la tristeza,
calma la amargura.

Por una cabeza
si ella me olvida
que importa perderme,
mil veces la vida
para que vivir...

Cuantos desengaños, por una cabeza,
yo jure mil veces no vuelvo a insistir
pero si un mirar me hiere al pasar,
su boca de fuego, otra vez, quiero besar.

Basta de carreras, se acabo la timba,
un final reñido yo no vuelvo a ver,
pero si algun pingo llega a ser fija el domingo,
yo me juego entero, que le voy a hacer.

English:
Losing by a head of a noble horse
who slackens just down the stretch
and when it comes back it seems to say:
don't forget brother,
You know, you shouldn't bet.
Losing by a head, instant violent love
of that flirtatious and cheerful woman
who, swearing with a smile
a love she's lying about,
burns in a blaze all my love.

Losing by a head
there was all that madness;
her mouth in a kiss
wipes out the sadness,
it soothes the bitterness.

Losing by a head
if she forgets me,
no matter to lose
my life a thousand times;
why live?

Many deceptions, loosing by a head...
I swore a thousand times not to insist again
but if a look sways me on passing by
her lips of fire, I want to kiss once more.

Enough of race tracks, no more gambling,
a photo-finish I'm not watching again,
but if a pony looks like a sure thing on Sunday,
I'll bet everything again, what can I do?

Rhythm Divine


Written by Paul Barry and Mark Taylor

Escucha el ritmo de tu corazon
From the coast of Ipanema
To the Island of Capri
All the way to Guadalupe
I will follow you wherever you may be
From the moment I first saw you
Knew my heart could not be free
Had to hold you in my arms
There can never be another for me
Chorus:
All I need is
The rhythm divine
Lost in the music
Your heart will be mine
All I need is
The look in your eyes
Viva la musica
Say you'll be mine

When you feel the heat of passion
Can you taste on love's sweet wine
Join the dance and let it happen
Tomorrow skips right out of your mind
As the music draws you closer
And you're falling down my spine
I will catch you
In my arms now
Where the night can take us no can tell

Chorus
Can't have this feeling forever
Gonna live this moment together
Nothing else matters
Just you and the night
We're on the wings of desire
Another look is taking you higher
No one can stop us from having it all

You are my heart......you are my soul

Chorus

Can you feel the rhythm?
Can you feel the rhythm?
Can you feel the rhythm?
Burning thru.....Burning thru

Man, it's a hot one
Like seven inches from the midday sun
Well, I hear you whisper
And the words melt everyone
But you stay so cool
My Muñequita
My Spanish Harlem Mona Lisa
You're my reason for reason
The step in my groove
And if you said.

1- This life ain't good enough
I would give my world to lift you up
I could change my life to better suit your mood
Cause you're so smooth.

2-And it's just like the ocean
Under the moon
Well, that's the same the emotion
That I get from you
You got the kind of loving
That could be so smooth
Give me your heart
Make it real
Or else forget about it

I'll tell you one thing
Well, if you would leave
It'd be a crying shame
In every breath and every word
I hear your name calling me out
You hear my rhythm on your radio
And you feel the turning of
The world so soft and slow
It's turning you' round and 'round
And if you said
(Repeat 1, 2, 2)

Well, go forget about it....

Give me your heart, make it real, or else forget about it

Some Guys have all the Luck - Maxi Priest.

Written by Jeff Fortang
Also made famous by Rod Stewart, Junior Tucker, Robert Palmer and Derrick Harriott

Lonely, so lonely in your love
Oh so lonely, I'm saying

Alone in a crowd
On a bus after work
I'm day-dreaming

The guy next to me
Has his woman on his arm
My arms are empty

How does it feel
When the woman that you love
Says yes she loves you

It seems unfair
When there's love everywhere
And yet there's none for you

Some guys have all the luck
Some guys have all the pain
Some guys have a little sunshine in their lives
My life is always filled with rain

Someone to take
On a walk down by the lake
Dear Lord let her be

Someone who shouts
Someone who is liable to cry
At sad movies

I do believe I will die
Just to look in your eyes
And find them filled with me

But you're just a dream
And as real as it seems
I'm not that lucky

Some guys have all the luck
Some guys have all the pain
Some guys have a little sunshine in their lives
My life is always filled with rain

It's just a losing game
Things have got to change
Some girl will give my love a try
With my love their arms will open wide

Some guys have all the luck
Some guys have all the pain
Some guys have a little sunshine in their lives
My life is always filled with rain

Also made famous by Atlanta Rhythm Section, New Order, Dusty Springfield and Dennis Yost

In the cool of the evening when
ev'rything is gettin' kind of groovy,
I call you up and ask you
if you want to go and meet and see a movie,
First you say no,
you've got some plans for the night,
And then you stop, and say,
"All right."
Love is kinda crazy
with a spooky little girl like you.

You always keep me guessin',
I never seem to know what you are thinkin'.
And if a fella looks at you,
it's for sure your little eye will be a-winkin'.
I get confused,
'cause I don't know where I stand,
And then you smile,
and hold my hand.
Love is kinda crazy
with a spooky little girl like you.
Spooky!

If you decide someday
to stop this little game that you are playin',
I'm gonna tell you all
what my heart's been a-dyin' to be sayin'.
Just like a ghost,
you've been a-hauntin' my dreams,
So I'll propose...
on Halloween.
Love is kinda crazy
with a spooky little girl like you.

Spooky,

When marimba rhythmcs start to play
Dance with me, make me sway
Like a lazy ocean hugs the shore
Hold me close, sway me more

Like a flower bending in the breeze
Bend with me, sway with ease
When we dance you have a way with me
stay with me, sway with me

Other dancers may be on the floor
Dear but my eyes will see only you
Only you have a magic technique
When we sway I go weak

I can hear the sounds of violins
Long before it begins
Make me thrill as only you know how
Sway me smooth, sway me now

Other dancers may be on the floor
Dear, but my eyes will see only you
Only you have the magic technique

We're talking away
I don't know what
I'm to say I'll say it anyway
Today's another day to find you
Shying away
I'll be coming for your love, OK?

Take on me, take me on
I'll be gone
In a day or two

So needless to say
I'm odds and ends
But that's me stumbling away
Slowly learning that life is OK.
Say after me
It's no better to be safe than sorry

Take on me, take me on
I'll be gone
In a day or two

Oh the things that you say
Is it life or
Just a play my worries away
You're all the things I've got to
remember
You're shying away
I'll be coming for you anyway

Take on me, take me on
I'll be gone

Talking in your Sleep - The Romantics.

Written by Cos Canadler
Also make famous by Bucks Fizz

When you close your eyes
And go to sleep
And it's down to the sound
Of a heartbeat
I can hear the things
That you're dreamin' about
When you open up your heart
And the truth comes out

You tell me that you want me
You tell me that you need me
You tell me that you love me
And I know that I'm right
'Cause I hear it in the night

I hear the secrets that you keep
When you're talking in your sleep
I hear the secrets that you keep
When you're talking in your sleep

When I hold you in my arms at night
Don't you know you're sleeping in the spotlight
And all your dreams that you keep inside
You're telling me the secrets
That you just can't hide

You tell me that you want me
You tell me that you need me
You tell me that you love me
And I know that I'm right
'Cause I hear it in the night

I hear the secrets that you keep
When you're talking in your sleep
I hear the secrets that you keep
When you're talking in your sleep
I hear the secrets that you keep
When you're talking in your sleep
I hear the secrets that you keep
When you're talking in your sleep

When you close your eyes
And you fall asleep
Everything about you is a mystery

You tell me that you want me
You tell me that you need me
You tell me that you love me
And I know that I'm right
'Cause I hear it in the night

I hear the secrets that you keep
When you're talking in your sleep
I hear the secrets that you keep
When you're talking in your sleep
I hear the secrets that you keep
When you're talking in your sleep
I hear the secrets that you keep
When you're talking in your sleep
I hear the secrets that you keep
When you're talking in your sleep
I hear the secrets that you keep
When you're talking in your sleep

Antonio Carlos Jobim, Ithamara Koorax, Sergio Mendes, Lou Rawls, Archie Shepp,

First the original Portuguese lyrics translated into English line by line

Olha que coisa mais linda, Look at this thing, most lovely
mais cheia de graça most graceful
É ela menina It's her, the girl
que vem que passa that comes, that passes
Num doce balanço with a sweet swinging
caminho do mar walking to the sea

Moça do corpo dourado Girl of the golden body
do sol de Ipanema from the sun of Ipanema
O seu balançado Your swaying
é mais que um poema is more than a poem
É a coisa mais linda It's a thing more beautiful
que eu já vi passar than I have ever seen pass by

Ah, porque estou tão sozinho Ah, why am I so alone
Ah, porque tudo e tão triste Ah, why is everthing so sad
Ah, a beleza que existe The beauty that exists
A beleza que não é só minha The beauty that is not mine alone
que também passa sozinha that also passes by on its own

Ah, se ela soubesse Ah, if she only knew
que quando ela passa that when she passes
O mundo sorrindo the world smiles
se enche de graça fills itself with grace
E fica mais lindo and remains more beautiful
por causa do amor because of love


Then the song rewritten in English
Tall and tan
and young and lovely
the girl from Ipanema
goes walking
and when she passes
each one she passes
goes ahhh

When she walks
she's like a samba
that swings so cool
and sways so gently
that when she passes
each one she passes
goes ahhh

Oh, but he watches so sadly
How can he tell her he loves her
Yes, he would give his heart gladly
but each day when she walks to the sea
she looks straight ahead not at he

Tall and tan
and young and lovely
the girl from Ipanema
goes walking
and when she passes
he smiles but she doesn't see
she just doesn't see

You to me are Everything - The Real Thing.

Written by Michael Denne and Ken Gold

Oh, I would take the stars out of the sky for you
stop the rain from falling if you ask me to
I'd do anything for you, your wish is my command
I could move a mountain when your hand is in my hand

Oh, words can not express how much you mean to me
there must be some other way to make you see
If it takes my heart and soul, you know I'll pay the price
Everything that I possess I'd gladly sacrifice

Oh, you to me are everything
the sweetest song that I can sing
oh baby, oh baby
To you I guess I'm just a clown
who picks you up each time you're down
oh baby, oh baby
You give me just a taste of love
to build my hopes upon
You know you've got the power boy
to keep me holding on
Oh, now you've got the best of me
come on and take the rest of me, oh baby, yeah, oh

Oh, when you're close to me we seem so far apart
Maybe given time you'll have a change of heart
If it takes forever boy then I'm prepared to wait
The day you give your love to me won't be a day too late

Oh, you to me are everything
the sweetest song that I can sing
oh baby, oh baby
To you I guess I'm just a clown
who picks you up each time you're down
oh baby, oh baby
You give me just a taste of love
to build my hopes upon
You know you've got the power boy
to keep me holding on
Oh, now you've got the best of me
come on and take the rest of me, oh baby, yeah

Oh, you to me are everything
the sweetest song that I can sing
oh baby, oh baby
To you I guess I'm just a clown, I'm just a clown
who picks you up each time you're down
oh baby, oh baby

Oh, you to me are everything
the sweetest song that I can sing
oh baby, oh baby, baby
To you I guess I'm just a clown
who picks you up each time you're down
oh baby, baby, oh baby, oh yeah

You to me are everything
the sweetest song that I can sing
oh baby, yeah, oh baby, baby
To you I guess I'm just a clown
who picks you up each time you're down
oh baby, you know it, oh baby, baby

You to me are everything
the sweetest song that I can sing
oh baby, oh baby
To you I guess I'm just a clown
who picks you up each time you're down
oh baby, oh baby

Miss Tourist - Lord Kitchener.


Written by Aldwyn Roberts

Synopsis
A tourist gal in Trinidad for Carnival asks
“Tell me, Kitchy, how is it done?”
and then cuts loose to the sound of the steel drums.
The rhythm is both lively and sinuous,
as in the best of the classic calypsos.

Under the Boardwalk - The Drifters.

Written by Arthur Resnick and Kenny Young
Also made famous by The Jackson 5, Bette Midler, The Rolling Stones and John Mellenkamp

Oh the sun beats down and melts the tar up on the roof
And your shoes get so hot you wish your tired feet were fire-proof
Under the boardwalk down by the sea
On a blanket with my baby ... is where I'll be

From a park you hear the happy sounds from a carousel
You can almost taste the hotdogs and french fries they sell
Under the boardwalk down by the sea
On a blanket with my baby ... is where I'll be

Under the boardwalk out of the sun
Under the boardwalk we'll be having some fun
Under the boardwalk people walking above
Under the boardwalk we'll be falling in love
Under the board-walk board-walk

Under the boardwalk down by the sea
On a blanket with my baby ... is where I'll be

Under the boardwalk out of the sun
Under the boardwalk we'll be having some fun
Under the boardwalk people walking above
Under the boardwalk we'll be falling in love

Venus - Shocking Blue.

Written by Robbie VanLeeuwen
Also made famous by Bananarama

A Goddess on a mountain top
Was burning like a silver flame
The summit of Beauty in love
And Venus was her name

REFRAIN:
She's got it yeah, Baby, she's got it.
Well, I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
At your desire

Her weapon were her crystal eyes
Making every man mad
Black as the dark night she was
Got what no-one else had
Wa!

REFRAIN

Whiter Shade of Pale - Procal Harem.

Written by Gary Brooker
Also made famous by Sarah Brightman

We skipped the light fandango
turned cartwheels 'cross the floor
I was feeling kinda seasick
but the crowd called out for more
The room was humming harder
as the ceiling flew away
When we called out for another drink
the waiter brought a tray

And so it was that later
as the miller told his tale
that her face, at first just ghostly,
turned a whiter shade of pale

She said, 'There is no reason
and the truth is plain to see.
But I wandered through my playing cards
and would not let her be
one of sixteen vestal virgins
who were leaving for the coast
and although my eyes were open
they might have just as well've been closed

She said, 'I'm home on shore leave,
though in truth we were at sea
so I took her by the looking glass
and forced her to agree
saying, 'You must be the mermaid
who took Neptune for a ride.
But she smiled at me so sadly
that my anger straightway died

If music be the food of love
then laughter is its queen
and likewise if behind is in front
then dirt in truth is clean
My mouth by then like cardboard
seemed to slip straight through my head
So we crash-dived straightway quickly
and attacked the ocean bed

Yellow Moon - The Neville Brothers.

Written by Aaron Neville

Yellow moon, yellow moon,
why you keep peeping in my window?
Do you know something I don't know?
Did you see my baby
walking down the railroad tracks?
You can tell me if the girls
ever coming back.
Is she hid out with another
or is she trying to get back home?
Is she wrapped up in some other's arms?
Or is the girl somewhere all alone?
Can you see if she is missing me,
or is she having a real good time?
Has she forgotten all about,
or is the girl still mine all mine?
Chorus:
With your eye so big a shiney
You can see the whole damn land
Yellow moon can you tell me
If the girl's with another man?
Refrain:
Oh yellow moon,
have you seen that creole woman
You can tell me,
Now ain't you a friend of mine.
Chorus

You're the First, the Last, My Everything - Barry White.

Written by Peter Radcliffe

The first, the last, my everything
And the answer to all my dreams
You're my sun, my moon, my guiding star
My kind of wonderful, that's what you are
I know there's only, only one like you
There's no way they could have made two
You're all I'm living for
Your love I'll keep for evermore
You're the first, your the last, my everything

And with you I've found so many things
A love so new only you could bring
Can't you see it's you
You make me feel this way
You're like a fresh morning dew on a brand new day
I see so many ways that I
Can love you till the day I die
You're my reality, yet I'm lost in a-a-a a dream
You're the first, the last, my everything

[Musical Interlude]

I know there's only, only one like you
There's no way they could have made two
Girl you're my reality
But I'm lost in a-a-a a dream
You're the first, you're the last, my everything

You're Still the One - Shania Twain.

Written by Robert John "Mutt" Lange

(When I first saw you, I saw love.
And the first time you touched me, I felt love.
And after all this time, you're still the one I love.)

Looks like we made it
Look how far we've come my baby
We mighta took the long way
We knew we'd get there someday

Bridge:
They said, "I bet they'll never make it"
But just look at us holding on
We're still together still going strong

Chorus:
(You're still the one)
You're still the one I run to
The one that I belong to
You're still the one I want for life
(You're still the one)
You're still the one that I love
The only one I dream of
You're still the one I kiss good night

Ain't nothin' better
We beat the odds together
I'm glad we didn't listen
Look at what we would be missin'

(Bridge)

(Chorus)

(Chorus)

I'm so glad we made it
Look how far we've come my baby
