193. Vertiges de l’amour         (Alain Bashung)

  

J'ai crevé l'oreiller… J’ai du rêver trop fort

Ça m'prend les jours fériés

Quand Gisèle clap' dehors

J'aurais pas du ouvrir… à la rouquine carmélite

La mère sup' m'a vu venir

Dieu avait mis un kilt

Y a du avoir une fuite

Vertige de l'amour

 

Mes circuits sont niqués

Et y a un truc qui fait masse

L'courant peut plus passer

Non mais t'as vu c'qui passe

J'veux l'feuilleton à la place

Vertige de l'amour

 

Tu t'chop' des suées à Saïgon

J'm'écris des cartes postales du front

Si ça continue j'vais m'découper

Suivant les pointillés-hé !

  

Vertige de l'amour

Désir fou que rien ne chasse

Cœur transi reste sourd

Aux cris du marchand d'glaces

Non mais t'as vu c'qui s'passe

J'veux l'feuill'ton à la place

Vertige de l'amour.

 

Mon légionnaire attend qu'on l'chunte

Et la tranchée vient d'être repeinte, écoute

Si ça continue j'vais m'découper

Suivant les pointillés-hé !

 

Vertige de l'amour… J'ai du rêver trop fort

Ça m'prend les jours fériés

Quand Gisèle clap' dehors

J'ai crevé l'oreiller… J'ai du rêver trop fort

 

Ça m'prend les jours fériés

Quand Gisèle clap' dehors

J'ai crevé l'oreiller… J'ai du rêver trop fort.

194. Walk on the wild side      (Lou Reed)

  

Holly came from Miami F.L.A.

Hitch-hiked her way across the U.S.A.

Plucked her eyebrows on the way

Shaved her legs and then he was a she

She said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side,

Said, hey honey, take a walk on the wild side.

 

Candy came from out on the island,

In the backroom she was everybody's darling,

But she never lost her head

Even when she was giving head

She sayes, hey baby, take a walk on the wild side

Said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side

And the colored girls go, doo doo doo…

 

Little Joe never once gave it away

Everybody had to pay and pay

A hustle here and a hustle there

New York City is the place where they said:

Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side

I said hey Joe, take a walk on the wild side

  

Sugar Plum Fairy came and hit the streets

Lookin' for soul food and a place to eat

Went to the Apollo

You should have seen him go, go, go

They said, hey Sugar, take a walk on the wild side

I said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side, alright, huh

 

Jackie is just speeding away

Thought she was James Dean for a day

Then I guess she had to crash

Valium would have helped that bash

She said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side

I said, hey honey, take a walk on the wild side

And the colored girls say  doo, doo, doo…

195. Waterloo      (Abba)

  

My my, at Waterloo Napoleon did surrender

Oh yeah, and I have met my destiny

in quite a similar way

The history book on the shelf

Is always repeating itself

 

Waterloo I was defeated, you won the war

Waterloo Promise to love you for ever more

Waterloo Couldn't escape if I wanted to

Waterloo Knowing my fate is to be with you

Waterloo Finally facing my Waterloo

 

My my, I tried to hold you back but you were stronger

Oh yeah, and now it seems

my only chance is giving up the fight

And how could I ever refuse

I feel like I win when I lose

 

Waterloo I was defeated, you won the war

Waterloo Promise to love you for ever more

Waterloo Couldn't escape if I wanted to

Waterloo Knowing my fate is to be with you

Waterloo Finally facing my Waterloo

 

And how could I ever refuse

I feel like I win when I lose

 

Waterloo I was defeated, you won the war

Waterloo Promise to love you for ever more

Waterloo Couldn't escape if I wanted to

Waterloo Knowing my fate is to be with you

Waterloo Finally facing my Waterloo

196. What A Wonderful World   (Louis Amstrong)

 

 I see trees of green,         red roses too

I see them bloom,             for me and you

And I think to myself         what a wonderful world

 

I see skies of blue            and clouds of white

The bright blessed day,    the dark sacred night

And I think to myself         what a wonderful world

 

The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky

Are also on the faces of people goin' by

I see friends shaking hands, saying "How do you do?"

They're really saying "I love you"

 

I hear babies cry,             I watch them grow

They learn much more     than I'll ever know

And I think to myself         what a wonderful world

Yes I think to myself         what a wonderful world

197. While my guitar gently weeps    (The Beatles)

 

I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping

While my guitar gently weeps

I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping

Still my guitar gently weeps

 

I don't know why nobody told you

How to unfold your love

I don't know how someone controlled you

They bought and sold you

 

I look at the world and I notice it's turning

While my guitar gently weeps

With every mistake we must surely be learning

Still my guitar gently weeps

 

Solo

 

I don't know how you were diverted

You were perverted too

I don't know how you were inverted

No one alerted you

 

I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping

While my guitar gently weeps

I look at you all

Still my guitar gently weeps

198. With a little help from my friends  (The Beatles)

 

What would you think if I sang out of tune

Would you stand up and walk out on me?

Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song

And I'll try not to sing out of key

Oh I get by with a little help from my friends

I get high with a little help from my friends

I’m gonna try with a little help from my friends

 

What do I do when my love is away?

Does it worry you to be alone?

How do I feel by the end of the day?

Are you sad because you're on your own?

Oh I get by with a little help from my friends

I get high with a little help from my friends

I’m gonna try with a little help from my friends

 

Do you need anybody?

I need somebody to love

Could it be anybody?

I want somebody to love

 

Would you believe in a love at first sight?

Yes I'm certain that it happens all the time

What do you see when you turn out the light?

I can't tell you, but I know it's mine

Oh I get by with a little help from my friends

I get high with a little help from my friends

I’m gonna try with a little help from my friends

 

Do you need anybody?

I just need someone to love

Could it be anybody?

I want somebody to love

 

Oh I get by with a little help from my friends

I get high with a little help from my friends

I’m gonna try with a little help from my friends

199. You are so beautiful         (Joe cocker) 

 

You are so beautiful 
To me 
You are so beautiful 
To me 
Can't you see 

You're everything I hope for 
You're everything I need 


You are so beautiful to me 
You are so beautiful to me 

You are so beautiful 
To me 
Can't you see 
You're everything I hope for 
You're every, everything I need 
You are so beautiful to me

 

200. You can’t always get what you want  (The Rolling Stones)

 

I saw her today at the reception

A glass of wine in her hand

I knew she was gonna meet her connection

At her feet was    footloose man

You can't always get what you want

You can't always get what you want

You can't always get what you want

But if you try sometimes well you might find

You get what you need

 

I went down to the demonstration

To get my fair share of abuse

Singing, "We're gonna vent our frustration

If we don't we're gonna blow a 50-amp fuse"

You can't always get what you want

You can't always get what you want

You can't always get what you want

But if you try sometimes well you might find

You get what you need

 

I went down to the Chelsea drugstore

To get your prescription filled

I was standing in line with Mr. Jimmy

And man, did he look pretty ill

We decided that we would have a soda

My favorite flavor, cherry red

I sung my song to Mr. Jimmy

Yeah, and he said one word to me, and that was "dead"

I said to him

You can't always get what you want

You can't always get what you want

You can't always get what you want

But if you try sometimes well you might find

You get what you need

Instru

 

I saw her today at the reception

In her glass was a bleeding man

She was practiced at the art of deception

Well I could tell by her blood-stained hands

You can't always get what you want

You can't always get what you want

You can't always get what you want

But if you try sometimes well you might find

You get what you need
