177. Sunny          (Bobby Hebb)

Sunny,      yesterday my life was filled with rain

Sunny,      you smiled at me and really eased the pain

Dark days are gone and the bright days are here

My sunny one shines so sincere

Sunny, one so true,  I love you

     

Sunny,      thank you for the sunshine bouquet

Sunny,      thank you for the love you brought my way

You gave to me your all and all

And now I’m feelling ten feet tall

Sunny, one so true,  I love you

 

Sunny,      thank you for the truth you've let me see

Sunny,      thank you for the facts from A to C

My life was torn like a windblown sand

A rock was formed when we held hands

Sunny, one so true,  I love you

 

Sunny,      thank you for that smile upon your face

Sunny,      thank you for that gleam that flows with grace

You're my spark of nature's fire

You're my sweet complete desire

Sunny, one so true,  I love you

  

Sunny,      yesterday all my life was filled with rain

Sunny,      you smiled at me and really eased the pain

Dark days are gone and the bright days are here

My sunny one shines so sincere

Sunny, one so true,  I love you         I love you

178. Sweet home Alabama      (LYNYRD SKYNYRD)

 

Big wheels keep on turning

Carry me home to see my kin

Singing songs about the Southland

I miss Alabamy once again and I think it’s a sin, yes

 

Well I heard mister Young sing about her

Well, I heard ole Neil put her down

Well, I hope Neil Young will remember

A Southern man don't need him around anyhow

 

Sweet home Alabama

Where the skies are so blue

Sweet Home Alabama

Lord, I'm coming home to you

 

Solo

 

In Birmingham they love the governor

Now we all did what we could do

Now Watergate does not bother me

Does your conscience bother you ? Tell the truth

 

Sweet home Alabama

Where the skies are so blue

Sweet Home Alabama

Lord, I'm coming home to you

 

Now Muscle Shoals has got the Swampers

And they've been known to pick a song or two

Lord they get me off so much

They pick me up when I'm feeling blue, now how about you?

 

Sweet home Alabama

Where the skies are so blue

Sweet Home Alabama

Lord, I'm coming home to you

 

Solo

 

Sweet home Alabama

Where the skies are so blue

Sweet Home Alabama

Lord, I'm coming home to you   (Ad Lib)

179. Sympathique              (Pink Martini)

 

Ma chambre a la forme d'une cage

Le soleil passe son bras par la fenêtre

Les chasseurs à ma porte

Comme les petits soldats

Qui veulent me prendre

 

Je ne veux pas travailler, je ne veux pas déjeuner

Je veux seulement oublier, et puis je fume

 

Déjà j'ai connu le parfum de l'amour

Un million de roses n'embaumeraient pas autant

Maintenant une seule fleur dans mes entourages

Me rend malade

 

Je ne veux pas travailler, je ne veux pas déjeuner

Je veux seulement oublier, et puis je fume

 

Je ne suis pas fière de ça, vie qui veut me tuer

C'est magnifique, être sympathique

Mais je ne le connais jamais

 

Je ne veux pas travailler, je ne veux pas déjeuner

Je veux seulement oublier, et puis je fume

 

Instru

 

Je ne veux pas travailler, je ne veux pas déjeuner

Je veux seulement oublier, et puis je fume

 

Je ne suis pas fière de ça

Vie qui veut me tuer

C'est magnifique

Etre sympathique

Mais je ne le connais jamais

 

Je ne veux pas travailler, je ne veux pas déjeuner

Je veux seulement oublier, et puis je fume

180. Sympathy for the devil      (The Rolling Stones)

 

Please allow me to introduce myself

I'm a man of wealth and taste

I've been around for a long, long year

Stole many a man's soul and faith

And I was 'round when Jesus Christ

Had his moment of doubt and pain

Made damn sure that Pilate

Washed his hands and sealed his fate

Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my name

But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game

 

I stuck around St. Petersburg

When I saw it was a time for a change

Killed the czar and his ministers

Anastasia screamed in vain

I rode a tank, held a general's rank

When the blitzkrieg raged

And the bodies stank

Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my name

But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game

 

I watched with glee while your kings and queens

Fought for ten décades for the gods they made

I shouted out "Who killed the Kennedys?"

When after all it was you and me

Let me please introduce myself

I'm a man of wealth and taste

And I laid traps for troubadours

Who get killed before they reached Bombay

Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my name

But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game

 

Solo

 

Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my name

But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game

 

Just as every cop is a criminal

And all the sinners saints

As heads is tails, just call me Lucifer

Cause I'm in need of some restraint

So if you meet me have some courtesy

Have some sympathy, and some taste

Use all your well-learned politesse

Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my name

But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game

 

Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my name

But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game

Tell me baby, what's my name

Tell me honey, can ya guess my name

I tell you one time, you're to blame

181. Tainted love

           

Sometimes I feel I've got to…   Run away

I've got to… Get away

From the pain that you drive into the heart of me

The love we share seems to… go nowhere

And I've lost my light

For I toss and turn I can't sleep at night

 

Once I ran to you…    Now I'll run from you

This tainted love you've given

I give you all a boy could give you

Take my tears and that's not nearly all

Oh... tainted love … Tainted love

 

Now I know I've got to… Run away

I've got to… Get away

You don't really want IT any more from me

To make things right

You need someone to hold you tight

And you'LL think love is to pray

But I'm sorry I don't pray that way

       

Refrain

 

Don't touch me please  I cannot stand the way you tease

I love you though you hurt me so

Now I'm going to pack my things and go…

182. Take me home, country road      (John Denver)

 

Almost heaven, West Virginia

Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River

Life is old there, older than the trees

Younger than the mountain, blowing like a breeze

Country roads, take me home

To the place where I belong

West Virginia, mountain mama

Take me home, country roads

 

All my memories gather round her

Minor's lady, stranger to blue water

Dark and dusty, painted in the sky

Misty taste of moonshine , teardrops in my eye

Country roads, take me home

To the place where I belong

West Virginia, mountain mama

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've been home yesterday, yesterday

Country roads, take me home

To the place where I belong

West Virginia, mountain mama

Take me home, country roads

183. Take on me           (Ah-A)

 

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

 

Instru

 

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      In a day or two

184. That's How I Got To Memphis     (Tom T. Hall)

  

If you love somebody enough

You follow them wherever they go

That's how I got to Memphis, that's how I got to Memphis

 

If you love somebody enough

Then you go where your heart needs to go

That's how I got to Memphis, that's how I got to Memphis

 

I know if you'd seen her

You'd tell me cause you are my friend

I've got to find her and find out the trouble she's in

 

If you tell me she isn't here

I'll follow by the trail of her tears

That's how I got to Memphis, that's how I got to Memphis

 

She' use to get mad and she'd say

She'd go back to Memphis someday

That's how I got to Memphis, that's how I got to Memphis

 

I got to find her

And tell her that I love her so

I'll never rest till I find out why she had to go

 

Thank you for your precious time

Forvive me if I start to cry

That's how I got to Memphis, that's how I got to Memphis…
