Protection

Interpreted by Tracy Thorn

This girl I know needs some shelter
She don’t believe anyone can help her
She’s doing so much harm, doing so much damage
But you don’t want to get involved
You tell her she can manage
And you can’t change the way she feels
But you could put your arms around her

I know you want to live yourself
But could you forgive yourself
If you left her just the way
You found her

I stand in front of you
I’ll take the force of the blow
Protection

I stand in front of you
I’ll take the force of the blow
Protection

You’re a boy and i’m a girl
But you know you can lean on me
And I don’t have no fear
I’ll take on any man here
Who says that’s not the way it should be

I stand in front of you
I’ll take the force of the blow
Protection

I stand in front of you
I’ll take the force of the blow
Protection

She’s a girl and you’re a boy
Sometimes you look so small, look so small
You’ve got a baby of your own
When your baby’s gone, she’ll be the one
To catch you when you fall

I stand in front of you
I’ll take the force of the blow
Protection

I stand in front of you
I’ll take the force of the blow
Protection

You’re a girl and i’m a boy (x4)

Sometimes you look so small, need some shelter
Just runnin’ round and round, helter skelter
And I’ve leaned on me for years
Now you can lean on me
And that’s more than love, that’s the way it should be
Now I can’t change the way you feel
But I can put my arms around you
That’s just part of the deal
That’s the way I feel
I’ll put my arms around you

I stand in front of you
I’ll take the force of the blow
Protection

I stand in front of you
I’ll take the force of the blow
Protection

You’re a boy and i’m a girl (x4)

Postcard from a foreign strand

I hold your hand
and in your eyes I see first celebrations

a super 8
a birthday cake
a puppy dog lungs first inhalation

I hold your breath
and in your fainting eyes I see relief
my hand upon your body soft goes numb

Aquarius

Lyrics: James Rado & Gerome Ragni. Music: Galt MacDermot. HAiR: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical.

When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius
The age of Aquarius
Aquarius!
Aquarius!

Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
No more falsehoods or derisions
Golding living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revalation
And the mind’s true liberation
Aquarius!
Aquarius!

When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius
The age of Aquarius
Aquarius!
Aquarius!

As our hearts go beating through the night
We dance unto the dawn of day
To be the bearers of the water
Our light will lead the way
We are the spirit of the age of Aquarius
The Age of Aquarius
Aquarius!
Aquarius!

Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
Angelic illumination
Rising fiery constellation
Travelling our starry courses
Guided by the cosmic forces
Oh care for us
Aquarius!

Blood on the rooftops

Dark and grey, an english film, the wednesday play
We always watch the queen on christmas day
Wont you stay?

Though your eyes see shipwrecked sailors youre still dry
The outlooks fine though wales might have some rain
Saved again.

Lets skip the news boy (Ill make some tea)
The arabs and the jews boy (too much for me)
They get me confused boy (puts me off to sleep)
And the thing I hate – oh lord!
Is staying up late, to watch some debate, on some nations fate.

Hypnotised by batman, tarzan, still surprised!
Youve won the west in time to be our guest
Name your prize!

Drop of wine, a glass of beer dear whats the time?
The grime on the tyne is mine all mine all mine
Five past nine.

Blood on the rooftops – venice in the spring
Streets of san francisco – a word from peking
The trouble was started – by a young errol flynn
Better in my day – oh lord!
For when we got bored, wed have a world war, happy but poor

So lets skip the news boy (Ill go make that tea)
Blood on the rooftops (too much for me)
When old mother goose stops – theyre out for 23
Then the rain at lords stopped play
Seems helen of troy has found a new face again.

It’s alright

Its no use saying that its alright, its alright.
But where were you after midnight, midnight.
Heard a bang, bang, bang; down they go
Its just a job you do
Cos the harder they run, and the harder they fall.
Im coming down hard on you.

Now no-one saw what you looked like, what you looked like
Like a stranger you came out of the night, out of the night
Cos someone put the word on you, and I hope my aim is true.

Cos I got a name, and I got a number, I gotta line on you
I got a name, and I got a number, Im coming after you

Dont keep saying that its alright, its alright,
It seems you went just a little too far this time
Heard a bang bang bang, and down you go,
Its just a job I do,
Cos the harder you run the harder you fall,
Im coming down hard on you, hard on you – I hope my aim is true.

I got a name, and I got a number, I got a line on you
I got a name, and I got a number, and Im coming after you

Keep running, keep running; city to city
Even if youre innocent,
You can cause too much embarrassment
And though your heart is breaking,
And you know theres no mistaking.
Cos you feel your life line breaking (keep running, keep running)
You can feel your hands are shaking (keep running, keep running)
And no-one answers the telephone
You can never never ever go home alone
And though your heart is aching
And you know theres no mistaking.
The footsteps close behind.

Now dont pretend that you sleep at night, but sleep tight
And cant you feel that the time is right, its alright.
Heard a bang bang bang, and down you go
Oh no-one really cares
Cos the harder you run, and the harder you fall.
Im coming down hard on you, hard on you – Im hoping that my aim is
True.

I got a name, and I got a number, I got a line on you
I got a name, and I got a number, Im coming after you

I got a name, and I got a number, I got a line on you
I got a name, and I got a number, I got a job to do.

The Power of Love

I’ll protect you from the hooded claw

Keep the vampires from your door

Feels like fire
I’m so in love with you
Dreams are like angels
They keep bad at bay-bad at bay
Love is the light
Scaring darkness away-yeah

I’m so in love with you
Purge the soul
Make love your goal

*The power of love
A force from above
Cleaning my soul
Flame on burn desire
Love with tongues of fire
Purge the soul
Make love your goal

I’ll protect you from the hooded claw
Keep the vampires from your door
When the chips are down I’ll be around
With my undying, death-defying
Love for you

Envy will hurt itself
Let yourself be beautiful
Sparkling love, flowers
And pearls and pretty girls
Love is like an energy
Rushin’ rushin’ inside of me

*(Repeat)

This time we go sublime
Lovers entwine-divine divine
Love is danger, love is pleasure
Love is pure-the only treasure

I’m so in love with you
Purge the soul
Make love your goal

The power of love
A force from above
Cleaning my soul
The power of love
A force from above
A sky-scraping dove

Flame on burn desire
Love with tongues of fire
Purge the soul
Make love your goal

I’ll protect you from the hooded claw
Keep the vampires from your door

Without Me

M. Mathers / J. Bass

Obie Trice
Real name no gimmicks

Two trailer park girls go round the outside
Round the outside, round the outside
Two trailer park girls go round the outside
Round the outside, round the outside

Guess who’s back, back again
Shady’s back, tell a friend
Guess who’s back, guess who’s back
Guess who’s back. guess who’s back
Guess who’s back, guess who’s back, guess who’s back

I created a monster, ‘cos nobody wants to
See Marshall no more they want Shady
I’m chopped liver
Well if you want Shady, then this is what I’ll give ya
A little bit of me mixed with some hard liquor
Some vodka that will jumpstart my heart quicker
Then a shock when I get shocked at the hospital
By the Doctor when I’m not cooperating
When I’m rocking the table while he’s operating
Hey, you waited this long to stop debating
‘Cos I’m back, I’m on the rag and ovulating
I know that you got a job Ms. Cheney
But your husband’s heart problem is complicated
So the FCC won’t let me be
Or let me be me so let me see
They tried to shut me down on MTV
But it feels so empty without me
So, come on and dip, bum on your lips
Jump back jiggle a hip and wiggle a bit
And get ready, ‘cos this is about to get heavy
I just settled all my lawsuits, you Debbie

Now this looks like a job for me
So everybody just follow me
‘Cos we need a little controversy
‘Cos it feels so empty without me
Now this looks like a job for me
So everybody just follow me
‘Cos we need a little controversy
‘Cos it feels so empty without me

Little hellions kids feeling rebellious
Embarrassed, their parents still listen to Elvis
They start feeling like prisoners helpless
‘Til someone comes along on a mission and yells “bitch”
A visionary, vision is scary, could start a revolution
Pollutin’ the airwaves a rebel
So let me just revel and bask
In the fact that I got everyone kissing my ass
And it’s a disaster such a catastrophe
For you to see so damn much of my ass you ask for me
Well I’m back fix your bent antennae
Tune it in and then I’m gonna enter into
The front of your skin like a splinter
The centre of attention back for the winter
I’m interesting, the best thing since wrestling
Infesting in your kids ears and nesting
Testing “Attention Please”
Feel the tension soon as someone mentions me
Here’s my 10 cents my 2 cents is free
A nuisance, who sent, you sent for me

Now this looks like a job for me
So everybody just follow me
‘Cos we need a little controversy
‘Cos it feels so empty without me
Now this looks like a job for me
So everybody just follow me
‘Cos we need a little controversy
‘Cos it feels so empty without me

A tisk-it a task-it,
I go tit for tat with anybody who’s talking this and that
Chris Kirkpatrick, you can get your ass kicked
Worse than them little Limp Bizkit
And Moby, you can get stomped by Obie
You 36 year old bald headed Stan me
You don’t know me, you’re too old
Let it go it’s over, nobody listens to techno
Now let’s go, just give me a signal
I’ll be there with a whole list full of new insults
I’ve been dope, suspenseful with a pencil
Ever since Prince turned himself into a symbol
But sometimes man it just seems
Everybody only wants to discuss me
So this must mean I’m disgusting
But it’s just me I’m just obscene
Though I’m not the first king of controversy
I am the worst thing since Elvis Presley
To do Black Music so selfishly
And use it to get myself wealthy
Hey, there’s a concept that works
20 million other white rappers emerge
But no matter how many fish in the sea
It will be so empty without me

Now this looks like a job for me
So everybody just follow me
‘Cos we need a little controversy
‘Cos it feels so empty without me
Now this looks like a job for me
So everybody just follow me
‘Cos we need a little controversy
‘Cos it feels so empty without me

Hum dee dai la la hum dei dei la la la la la

Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream

Lyrics & mysic by Pat Ballard. Originally interpreted by The Chordettes.

Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream
Make him the cutest that I’ve ever seen
Give him two lips like roses and clover
Then tell him that his lonesome nights are over.
Sandman, I’m so alone
Don’t have nobody to call my own
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream.

Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream
Make him the cutest that I’ve ever seen
Give him the word that I’m not a rover
Then tell him that his lonesome nights are over.
Sandman, I’m so alone
Don’t have nobody to call my own
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream.

Mr. Sandman, bring us a dream
Give him a pair of eyes with a come-hither gleam
Give him a lonely heart like Pagliacci
And lots of wavy hair like Liberace
Mr Sandman, someone to hold
Would be so peachy before we’re too old
So please turn on your magic beam
Mr Sandman, bring us, please, please, please
Mr Sandman, bring us a dream.
