THE HEART OF ROCK & ROLL

(J. Colla/H. Lewis)

New York, New York is everything they say
Ain’t no place that I’d rather be
Where else can you do a half a million things
And all at a quarter to three

When they play their music
Ooh, that modern music
The like it with a lot of style
But it’s still that same old back beat rhythm
That really, really drives them wild

Chorus:
They say the heart of rock and roll is still beating
And from what I’ve seen I believe ’em
Now the old boy may be barely breathing
But the heart of rock
Heart of roll is still beating

LA, Hollywood and the Sunset Strip
Is something everyone should see
Neon lights and the pretty, pretty girls
All dressed so scantily

When they play their music
That hard rock music
They like it with a lot of flash
But it’s still that same old back beat rhythm
That really, really kicks ’em in the…

(Chorus)

DC, San Antone and the Liberty town
Boston and Baton Rouge
Tulsa, Austin, Oklahoma City
Seattle, San Francisco too
Everywhere there’s music
Real live music
Bands with a million styles
But it’s still that same old rock and roll music
That really, really drives ’em wild

(Chorus)

In Cleveland
Detroit
Heart of rock and roll

HEART AND SOUL

(M. Chapmin/N. Chinn)

Two o’clock this morning
If she should come a calling
I wouldn’t dream of turning her away
And if it got hot and hectic
I know she’d be electric
I’d let her take her chances with me
You see
She gets what she wants

Chorus:
‘Cause she’s heart and soul
She’s hot and cold
She’s got it all
Hot loving every night
Ooh-oh
Ooh-oh-oh-oh

Can’t you see her standing there
See how she looks, see how she cares
I let her steal the night away from me

Nine o’clock this morning
She left without a warning
I let her take advantage of me
You see, she got what she wanted

(Chorus)

Yes, she’s heart and soul
She’s hot and cold
She’s got it all
She’s heart and soul

She’s got lovin’ every night
Ooh-oh
Ooh-oh-oh-oh
She’s got it all
She’s heart and soul

DOING IT ALL FOR MY BABY

(P. Cody/M. Duke)

Early in the morning
I’m still in bed
She comes to me
With sweet affection
Wakes me with kisses
“Hello sleepyhead.”
Gets me moving
In the right direction

I do my best to give her love that lasts forever
It seems like everything I do I’m doing better

Chorus:
Doing it all for my baby
Cause she’s as fine as she can be
I’m doing it all for my baby
For everything she does for me

Later in the evening
It’s been a busy day
She lays her head
Upon my weary shoulder
Listen to her laughing
Snuggle up and say
Now I’m with you baby
The loneliness is over

I do my best to give her love that lasts forever
It seems like everything I do I’m doing better

(Chorus)

 
Lyrics

DO YOU BELIEVE IN LOVE

(M. Lange)

I was walkin’ down a one way street
Just a lookin’ for someone to meet
One woman who was lookin’ for a man

Now I’m hopin’ (hopin’)
That the feelin’ is right
And I’m wonderin’ (wonderin’)
If you’ll stay for the night
So I’m comin’
(I don’t wanna be lonely, baby, please tell me)
I wanna love you all over

Chorus:
(Do you believe in love)
(Do you believe it’s true)
(Do you believe in love)
Oh, your makin’ me believe it too

Now the feeling is beginning to grow
And the meaning is something you only know
If you believe it
Take my hand and I’ll take your heart
Come on

Now I’m wonder (wonder)
Where does true love begin
I’m going under (under)
So I’m lettin’ you in
My woman
(I don’t wanna be lonely, baby, please tell me)
I wanna love you all over

(Chorus)

(I used to have you in a photograph)
I’m so glad it’s changed
(But now I’ve got you and it’s gonna last)
Do you believe in love

(Chorus)

TROUBLE IN PARADISE

(Cipollina/Colla/Gibson/Hayes/Hopper/Lewis)

Billy’s home, he just back from LA
Plenty of lines but nothing to say
He said I seen this movie and it don’t end nice
Looks like trouble in paradise

He used to be cool he used to laugh a lot
Down at the brothers in the parking lot
Now he’s sick, and he’s scared and he’s paying the price

Chorus:
Trouble in paradise
Trouble in paradise
Momma said he always was so nice
Trouble in paradise

American son he’s not very old
An American dream that’s never been sold
The smile on his face is his last disguise
We’ve got trouble in paradise

There’s a scream inside that shouts here I am
Some people say you we’ve got to do all we can
Me I don’t know you see I’ve been there myself once or twice

(Chorus)

 
Lyrics

5. Trouble In Paradise (Live)

THE POWER OF LOVE

(J. Colla/C. Hayes/H. Lewis)

The power of love is a curious thing
Make a one man weep, make another man sing
Change a hawk to a little white dove
More than a feeling that’s the power of love

Tougher than diamonds, rich like cream
Stronger and harder than a bad girl’s dream
Make a bad one good, make a wrong one right
Power of love will keep you home at night

Chorus:
You don’t need money, don’t take fame
Don’t need no credit card to ride this train
It’s strong and it’s sudden
And it’s cruel sometimes
But it might just save your life
That’s the power of love
That’s the power of love

First time you feel it, it might make you sad
Next time you feel it, it might make you mad
But you’ll be glad, baby, when you’ve found
That’s the power makes the world go ’round

(Chorus)

They say that all in love is fair
Yeah, but you don’t care
But you know what to do
When it gets hold of you
And with a little help from above
You feel the power of love
You feel the power of love
Can you feel it?

(Chorus)

 
Lyrics

6. The Power of Love

IF THIS IS IT

(J. Colla/H. Lewis)

I’ve been phoning
Night and morning
I heard you say
Tell him I’m not home
Now you’re confessing
But I’m still guessing
I’ve been your fool for so, so long

Girl don’t lie, just to save my feelings
Girl don’t cry, and tell me nothing’s wrong
Girl don’t try to make up phony reasons
I’d rather leave than never believe

Chorus:
If this is it, please let me know
If this ain’t love you’d better let me go
If this is it, I want to know
If this ain’t love, baby
Just say so

You’ve been thinking
And I’ve been drinking
We both know that it’s just not right
Now you’re pretending
That it’s not ending
You’ll say anything to avoid a fight

Girl don’t lie, and tell me that you need me
Girl don’t cry, and tell me nothing’s wrong
I’ll be alright
Oh, one way or another
So let me go
Or make we want to stay

(Chorus)

 
Lyrics

7. If This Is It

BAD IS BAD

(A. Call/J. Ciambotti/S. Hopper/H.Lewis/J. McFee/M. Schriener)

Went uptown to see my cousin
Plays guitar, sounds like a chainsaw buzzin’
In the crowd I see his mom and dad
I said “Hey, hey Uncle, man your son is bad”

Chorus:
But sometimes, sometimes bad is bad
I said cool is a rule, but sometimes bad is bad

Across the street, a neon sign
All you can eat for a dollar ninety-nine
Our Soul Stew is the baddest in the land
But one dollar’s worth was all that I could stand

(Chorus)

Back uptown to see Marie
Nobody home, I opened the door with my key
“I love you, Huey” was the note I read
But there’s a strange pair of shoes underneath the bed

(Chorus)

 
Lyrics

WORKIN’ FOR A LIVING

(C. Hayes/H/ Lewis)

Somedays won’t end ever and somedays pass on by
I’ll be working here forever, at least until I die
Dammed if you do, dammed if you don’t
I’m supposed to get a raise week
You know damn well I won’t

Chorus:
Workin’ for a livin’ (workin’)
Workin’ for a livin’ (workin’)
Workin’ for a livin’,
Livin’ and workin’
I’m taking what they giving
Cause I’m working for a livin’

Hey I’m not complaining ’cause I really need the work
But hittin’ up my buddy’s got me feeling like a jerk
Hundred dollar car note, two hundred rent
I get a check on Friday, but it’s all ready spent

(Chorus)

Whooah, workin’ for a livin’
Whooah, taking what they giving
Whooah, workin’ for a livin’
Whooah, ooh

Bus boy, bartender, ladies of the night
Grease monkey, ex-junky, winner of the fight
Walking on the streets its really all the same
Selling souls, rock n’ roll, any other day

(Chorus)

IT’S ALRIGHT

(C. Mayfield)

They say it’s alright
They say it’s alright
It’s alright, have a good time
Cause it’s alright
whoa it’s alright

Now we gonna move real slow
When the lights are low
When you move it slow
It feels like more
Cause it’s alright
Whoa it’s alright

Now come on listen to the beat
And kinda tap your feet
You got soul
Everybody knows
That it’s alright
Whoa it’s alright

When you wake up early in the morning
Feeling sad like so many of us do
Hum along a song
Forget what’s gone wrong
And surely something’s gotta come to you

And you gotta say it’s alright
Yeah it’s alright
It’s alright, to have a good time
Cause it’s alright
Whoa it’s alright

Now everybody clap your hands
And give yourself a chance
You got soul
Everybody knows
That it’s alright
Whoa it’s alright

Someday I’ll find me a woman
Who will love me and treat me real nice
Where my road has got to go
My love she will know from morning, noon
And in the night

And she’s gonna say
That it’s alright
Say it’s alright
It’s alright
Have a good time
Cause it’s alright
Whoa it’s alright

STUCK WITH YOU

(C. Hayes/J. Colla)

We’ve had some fun
And yes we’ve had our ups and downs
Been down that rocky road
But here we are, still around
Thought about someone else
But neither one took the bait
Thought about breaking up
But now we know it’s much too late

We are bound by all the rest
Like the same phone number
All the same friends
And the same address

Chorus:
Yes, it’s true (yes it’s true)
I am happy to be stuck with you
Yes, it’s true (yes it’s true)
I’m so happy to be stuck with you
Cause I can see (I can see)
That you’re happy to be stuck with me

We’ve had our doubts
We never took them seriously
And we’ve had our ins and outs
But that’s the way it’s supposed to be
Thought about giving up, (giving up)
But we could never stay away
Thought about breaking up
But now we know it’s much too late

And it’s no great mystery
If we change our minds
Eventually
It’s back to you and me

(Chorus)

 
Lyrics

I WANT A NEW DRUG

(C. Hayes/H. Lewis)

I want a new drug
One that won’t make me sick
One that won’t make me crash my car
Or make me feel three feet thick

I want a new drug
One that won’t hurt my head
One that won’t make my mouth too dry
Or make my eyes too red

Chorus:
One that won’t make me nervous
Wonderin’ what to do
One that makes me feel
Like I feel when I’m with you
When I’m alone with you

I want a new drug
One that won’t spill
One that don’t cost too much
Or come in a pill

I want a new drug
One that won’t go away
One that won’t keep me up all night
One that won’t make me sleep all day

(Chorus)

I want a new drug
One that does what it should
One that won’t make me feel too bad
One that won’t make me feel too good

I want a new drug
One with no doubt
One that won’t make me talk too much
Or make my face break out

(Chorus)

100 YEARS FROM NOW

(M. East/N. East/H. Lewis)

If I don’t treat you like a lady
You won’t hold my hand
And you don’t like it when I call you baby
Don’t you understand
Even though we don’t see eye to eye
That’s no reason to say goodbye
You gotta learn to give and take
There’s so much love we can make

Chorus:
Even though we might be having a few doubts
Let’s take the time and try to work things out
The little things we fuss and fight about
Ain’t gonna matter 100 years from now

I admit I’m a little lazy, isn’t everyone
And you let things drive you crazy
Sometimes you act so young
Even though we don’t realize
We’d be foolish not to compromise
Cause what we have is all we’ve got
Believe it or not
We’ve really got a lot

 
Lyrics

SO LITTLE KINDNESS

(C. Hayes/H. Lewis/R. Sudduth)

I can’t believe it after so long
How can the memories really be gone
Now I don’t deny it’s over
But why must you be so cold
I can’t believe it

So little kindness
Yeah baby that’s too bad

I saw you this evening out on the town
You went outta your way just to put me down
Now why got this chip on your shoulder
When I don’t even love you no more
I can’t beleive it

So little kindness
Baby it’s sad
Cause we can’t even talk about anything
After what we once had had
So little kindness
Baby that’s too bad
So sad, so sad

Don’t worry baby
I’m not gonna stand in your way
Now that it’s gone
Our love is strong
No matter what you say

So little kindness
You’re so blind
That you can’t even recognize a real thing
When it was yours and mine
So little kindness
After all this time

So little kindness
Baby it’s sad
Cause we can’t even talk the little things
After the love we had
So little kindness

 
Lyrics

TILL THE DAY AFTER

(White/Carter/Hopper)

I believe you can love someone forever
I believe if it’s right love will last a lifetime
If you say I will stay everyday right here by your side
Loving every night

Soft perfume and a smooth walk
A smile that dances when you talk
Sweet melody when you whisper to me
I love ya
I need ya
I’m never gonna leave you

Summer mornings in your hair
Paradise in my arms
And I wanna take you there
So I’m down on one knee
And if you’ll have me
I love you
I’ll please you
I’m never gonna leave

Chorus:
I’m gonna stay till the day after
After the sun turns off it’s lights
The stars don’t shine at night
When God comes for my soul
I’ll politely say no
I’m gonna stay till the day after
The world stops turning around

(Chorus)

WHEN THE TIME HAS COME

(C. Hayes/H. Lewis)

Everything’s gonna clear up
And the sun will shine
Everybody’s gonna cheer up
Cause it’s redemption time

Don’t you worry ’bout a thing
Cause you know things are gonna change
When the time has come

Walls are gonna crumble
And fall into the sea
Oh, all men will be humble
That’s a guarantee

A little rain is gonna fall
But it will only wash away
The tears of us all

Don’t you worry bout a thing
Cause that train is gonna run
You will be on it
From here to kingdom come
When the time has come

Listen to the band
Feels like a change
Wind is gonna rise up
And blow us all away
People gonna wise up
Cause it’s judgement day

So don’t you worry about a thing
Cause you know that train is gonna run
You will be on it
Not just for some
We’ll all be on it
From here to kingdom come
When the time has come

When the time has come
When the time has come
Oh when the time has come

Everything’s gonna clear up
Everybody cheer up
Walls are gonna crumble
All men will be humble
Feeling it getting stronger
Won’t be down much longer
We will be free
When the time has come
