John Denver ♥ Take Me Home, Country Roads (The Ultimate Collection) with Lyrics

Almost heaven, West Virginia, Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River
Life is old there, older than the trees, younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze

Country roads, take me home to the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain mamma, take me home, country roads

All my memories gather round her, miner’s lady, stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky, misty taste of moonshine, teardrop in my eye

Country roads, take me home to the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain mamma, take me home, country roads

I hear her voice in the morning hour, she calls me, the radio reminds me of my home far away
And driving down the road I get a feeling that I should have been home yesterday, yesterday

Country roads, take me home to the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain mamma, take me home, country roads

Country roads, take me home to the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain mamma, take me home, country roads

Take me home now, country roads
Take me home now, country roads

She’s So Fine-Flash Cadillac-original song-1972

I’ve been searching for a girl Bobby socks and a pony tail
When I saw her standing there,
I had to pick her up I couldn’t fail
Cause I knew I had to make her mine
She’s so cool, she’s so fine
Woah woah woah woah
I was thinking there of things to say
Strollin up to her to make my play
I decide that I’d drive her home,
Call her later on the telephone
Cause I knew I had to make her mine
She’s so cool, she’s so fine
Woah woah woah woah
(And then I knew she could be mine)
She said a guy was just a waste of time
(You’re gonna lose that girl to me)
Just you wait and see!
Maybe later we could make a date
It’s gotta be tonight,
Cause I just can’t wait
If he sees us holding hands
He’d be wise to understand that
I knew I had to make her mine
She’s so cool, she’s so fine
Woah woah woah woah
(Doo wop de waddy waddy
Doo wop de waddy waddy)
I’ve been searchin for a girl
I’ve been searching for a girl
Wooh woo-oo-ooh

Barry White – My First My Last My Everything – Lyrics

Ally Mcbeal – John Cage Birthday Present Barry White

We got it together, didn’t we?
We definitely got our thing together, don’t we baby?
Isn’t that nice?
I mean, when you really sit and think about it, isn’t it really, really nice?
I can easily feel myself slipping more and more ways
Slip in world of my own
Nobody but you and me
We’ve got it together, baby

The first, my 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
Girl, you’re all I’m living for
Your love I’ll keep for evermore
You’re the first, you’re the last, my everything

In you I’ve found so many things
A love so new only you could bring
Can’t you see if you, you make me feel this way
You’re like a first morning dew on a brand new day

I see so many way that I
Can love you till the day I die
You’re my reality, yet I’m lost in a dream
You’re the first, the last, my everything

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 dream
You’re the first, you’re the last, my everything

You and me, babe
Just you and me
You are the first, the last, my everything

Close to You – Música

“(They Long to Be) Close to You” is a popular song written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, most notably recorded and performed by the Carpenters.

Close to You – Carpenters with Lyrics

“(They Long To Be) Close To You”

Why do birds suddenly appear
Every time you are near?
Just like me,
They long to be
Close to you.

Why do stars fall down from the sky
Every time you walk by?
Just like me,
They long to be
Close to you.

On the day that you were born the angels got together
And decided to create a dream come true.
So, they sprinkled moon dust in your hair of gold
And star light in your eyes of blue.

That is why all the girls in town
Follow you all around.
Just like me,
They long to be
Close to you.

On the day that you were born the angels got together
And decided to create a dream come true.
So, they sprinkled moon dust in your hair of gold
And star light in your eyes of blue.

That is why all the girls in town
Follow you all around.
Just like me,
They long to be
Close to you.

Just like me,
They long to be
Close to you.

Why? Close to you
Why? Close to you
Ha, close to you
Why? Close to you

“I Will Survive” is a hit song first performed by American singer Gloria Gaynor, released in October 1978. It was written by Freddie Perren and Dino Fekaris. A top-selling song after its initial release, it sold 14 million copies worldwide and has remained a popular disco anthem, as well as being certified platinum by the RIAA.

Gloria Gaynor- I Will Survive

At first I was afraid, I was petrified
Kept thinkin’ I could never live without you by my side
But then I spent so many nights thinking how you did me wrong
And I grew strong
And I learned how to get along

And so you’re back from outer space
I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face
I should have changed that stupid lock
I should have made you leave your key
If I had known for just one second you’d be back to bother me

Go on now, go walk out the door
Just turn around now
‘Cause you’re not welcome anymore
Weren’t you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye?
Did you think I’d crumble?
Did you think I’d lay down and die?

Oh no not I, I will survive
Oh, as long as I know how to love, I know I’ll stay alive
I’ve got all my life to live
And I’ve got all my love to give
And I’ll survive
I will survive
Hey, hey

It took all the strength I had not to fall apart
Kept tryin’ hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart
And I spent oh so many nights just feeling sorry for myself
I used to cry, but now I hold my head up high

And you see me, somebody new
I’m not that chained up little person still in love with you
And so you felt like dropping in and just expect me to be free
But now I’m savin’ all my lovin’ for someone who’s lovin’ me

Go on now, go walk out the door
Just turn around now
‘Cause you’re not welcome anymore
Weren’t you the one who tried to break me with goodbye?
Did you think I’d crumble?
Did you think I’d lay down and die?

Oh no not I, I will survive
Oh, as long as I know how to love, I know I’ll stay alive
I’ve got all my life to live
I’ve got all my love to give
And I’ll survive
I will survive
Oh

Go on now, go walk out the door
Just turn around now
‘Cause you’re not welcome anymore
Weren’t you the one who tried to break me with goodbye?
Did you think I’d crumble?
Did you think I’d lay down and die?

Oh no not I, I will survive
Oh, as long as I know how to love, I know I’ll stay alive
I’ve got all my life to live
I’ve got all my love to give
And I’ll survive
I will survive
I will survive

Bob Seger Old Time Rock n Roll

Just take those old records off the shelf
I’ll sit and listen to ’em by myself
Today’s music ain’t got the same soul
I like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Don’t try to take me to a disco
You’ll never even get me out on the floor
In ten minutes I’ll be late for the door
I like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Still like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll
That kind of music just soothes my soul
I reminisce about the days of old
With that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Won’t go to hear ’em play a tango
I’d rather hear some blues or funky old soul
There’s only one sure way to get me to go
Start playing old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Call me a relic, call me what you will
Say I’m old-fashioned, say I’m over the hill
Today’s music ain’t got the same soul
I like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Still like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll
That kind of music just soothes the soul
I reminisce about the days of old
With that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Still like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll
That kind of music just soothes my soul
I reminisce about the days of old
With that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Still like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll
That kind of music just soothes my soul
I reminisce about the days of old
With that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Still like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll
That kind of music just soothes my soul
I reminisce about the days of old
With that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Still like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Billy Swan – I can help

If you got a problem, don’t care what it is
If you need a hand, I can assure you this
I can help, I got two strong arms
I can help
It would sure do me good, to do you good
Let me help

It’s a fact that people get lonely, ain’t nothing new
But a woman like you, baby should never have the blues
Let me help, I got two for me
It would sure do me good, to do you good
Let me help

When I go to sleep at night you’re always a part of my dream
Holding me tight and telling me everything I wanna hear
Don’t forget me baby, all you gotta do is call
You know how I feel about ya, if I can do anything at all
Let me help, if your child needs a daddy, I can help
It would sure do me good to do you good
Let me help

[Musical Interlude]

When I go to sleep at night you’re always a part of my dream
Holding me tight and telling me everything I wanna hear
Don’t forget me baby, all you gotta do is call
You know how I feel about you, if I can do anything at all
Let me help, if your child needs a daddy, I can help
It would sure do me good to do you good
Let me help

Blondie – Heart Of Glass

“Heart Of Glass”

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind

Once I had a love and it was divine
Soon found out I was losing my mind
It seemed like the real thing but I was so blind
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind

In between
What I find is pleasing and I’m feeling fine
Love is so confusing there’s no peace of mind
If I fear I’m losing you it’s just no good
You teasing like you do

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind

Lost inside
Adorable illusion and I cannot hide
I’m the one you’re using, please don’t push me aside
We could’ve made it cruising, yeah

Yeah, riding high on love’s true bluish light

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out I had a heart of glass [radio version]
Soon turned out to be a pain in the ass [album version]
Seemed like the real thing only to find
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind

In between
What I find is pleasing and I’m feeling fine
Love is so confusing there’s no peace of mind
If I fear I’m losing you it’s just no good
You teasing like you do
