Stranger In A Strange Land
(Whitlock, Small*)

The honest spirit been blue iced; it's chilling me to the bone
Maybe now it's right, yea, I think that it's time to go
Every nation all around feeling kind of weird
Faster than both light and sound
I think I'm gonna disappear

Cause I'm a stranger in a strange land
Just a stranger, a solitary man
All alone I stand, just a stranger in a strange land

By the time you hear my voice I already will be gone
I don't have much choice; I already stayed too long,
In another place and time, I'll find where I belong
Until that day arrives, I guess I'll be moving on

Cause I'm a stranger in a strange land
Just a stranger, a solitary man
All alone I stand, just a stranger in a strange land

Yea, yea

No matter where I go I feel like a refugee
I guess…somewhere I know
There's got to be a place for me
I feel so lonely, yea, no matter where I go, I feel like a stranger ,yes I do,
Yes I do I feel like a stranger

Cause I'm a stranger in a strange land
Just a stranger, a solitary man
I'm a stranger in a strange land
Just a stranger, a solitary man
Yea Yea I feel like a stranger

Love Doesn't Last
(J. Entwistle)

Two names on a screwed up piece of paper
Two smiles on a photograph, two souls living as one,
So easy to tear apart

There's no fool like a young fool
Ain't no school can teach you that cool
Ain't no love like your first love
It's gets you here in your heart

I never thought it could end like this
With my back against the wall, so tall
Make me wish that the first kiss never happened at all
You knew from the start, right here in your heart
That love doesn't last right here in your heart

Forever after is a long long time,
But the happy ones are blind to the kind of deal they sign
When your life is on the line
Now the words have all been said and the tears have all been shed
And the lawyers fly in lazy circles up above your head

But you still got your heart, they can't take you heart
You knew from the start, that love doesn't last
Right here in your heart…. Come on and lose it again….
There's no fool like a young fool
Ain't no school can teach you that kind of cool
Ain't no love like your first love
It's gets you here in your heart

You should have listen, to your heart
You should have listen, to your heart


Suzie
(Small, Powers, Sigerson*)

I just saw Suzie the other day man she was looking fine
She's the one that I want Baby she's a right on time
Suzie won't tell a soul when I want her love
I get so out of control when I need a little ass
Suzie- you make me feel
 Suzie-you make me feel

There she is in red-hot heels on her heart shaped bed
Holding on to teddy bear I wish it was me instead
Little Suzie on a sandy beach wearing a piece of string
Does the girl know how I feel showing me everything?
Suzie-you make me feel
Suzie you make me feel

(Guitar Solo)

Well I run right home after school I get there quarter to four
 I say hi to my mom and dad then I go and lock the bathroom door
My mom gets so upset Daddy says it's just a stage
All I know is when I need the girl I go in by the page (Today)
You make me feel, Suzie-you make me feel
Suzie-you make me feel, Suzie-you make me feel

(Guitar Solo)

Keep your shoes on babe, I said Su-Su-Su-Su-Su-Su-Suzie
I love it, I love it
Spank the monkey Baby-spank the monkey
She's as tight as you want Ha-Ha She's as tight as you want
Yes she is….hey hey-ow
Suzie I really love the girl


Bridges Under The Water
(J. Entwistle)

I….who…I
Got a girl with black hair
Got a red head and she's a dead head too
Got a two tone blonde and one that matches
But I ain't got you
I've had too many years of one-night stands
Too many "just good friends" too many ships that sank in the night
I never sail again.
There are bridges under the waters but love that fly in my friend
I'm looking for love not a lover, a love that doesn't have to end
I've had too many years of one-night stands too many just good friends
And too many ships that sank in the night
I never sail again.
Now I'm ready, ready for love
Ain't no doubt about it, I'm looking for love
And I'm looking for you, and I'll be looking for me.

Bridges under the water
Hello, good-bye and a-men
I'm looking for love not a lover, a love that doesn't have to end
I've had too many years of one-night stands too many just good friends
 Too many ships that sank in the night
And never sail again.

(Guitar Solo)

Now I'm ready, ready for love
Ain't no doubt about it, I'm ready for love
I followed you to the gates of hell
I followed you to the Bates motel
 I'm ready, ready for love
And I'm looking for you, but are you looking for me
Said I'm ready, ready for your love
Ain't know doubt about it baby, but I'm ready for love.......


Heartache
(Small, Powers *)

Well, it looks like the party's over
Lose the feeling and you head for cover
You never told me, why I had to go
Well, there's one thing baby that I want you to know
Too many nights I lie awake crying for your love
But you don't care my hearts about to break
Oh here it comes.

I feel heartache coming on, I feel heartache and it's coming on.

What is the reason that you kick me down
Well I feel like custard, at the little big horn
You shot your arrows straight through my heart, through my heart
And you left me in down for love and it's tearing me all apart
Took away all that I had, when you took away your love
Did you have to leave me all so glad
Oh here it comes.

I feel heartache coming on, I feel heartache and it's coming on

(Guitar Solo)

I feel a, heartache, oh coming on
 I said I feel, said it cuts me deep it cuts me deep It cuts me wide cuts me deep 
I feel heartache and it's coming on, I feel heartache coming on..........


Billy
(Small, Powers *)

Billy and me we've been friends since '65
Thought there were days that would never end
Man we were so alive
Now I'm bald with a little bit older gone our separate ways
Hey boy if you're still out there I'm thinking about you today.

Oh where does the time go, oh where does the time go.

Billy was a fighter yea you could knock them out
Whenever I got myself in trouble you taught them what a friend was about
But now I hear he's moved up north with his wife and kids
Hey boy if you're still out there I was a remembering.

Oh where does the time go, oh where does the time go.

Keeps on slipping away, oh yea
Nothing stays the same, oh no.

Oh… me and Billy
Oh where does the time go…oh where does the time go


Life After Love
(J. Entwistle)

I use to feel I was shooting blanks at an amazon
Your body was always the state of the arch
You came on like a blitz you hit me and now you're gone
Your love is made a bombshed of my heart.

Can you tell me somebody please is there life after love
Somebody please is there life after love.

I used to dream we were Josephine and Napoleon
When you said not tonight you stole my life
You had more to hide than a jungle of Lorrion
You were the Greece…. abortion all the time.

Can you tell me somebody please is there life after love
Somebody please is there life after love.

You left me dancing about on a high wire
Just one false move and I'll bolt into hell's fire
Can you tell me somebody please is there life after love
Somebody please is there life after love.

Is there life after love, Is there life after love, Is there life after love is there love?
Is there life after love, Is there life after love, Is there life after love is there love?
Is there life after love, Is there life after love, Is there life after love is there love?
Is there life after love, Is there life after love, Is there life after love is there love?


Hurricane
(Small, Powers *)

The way you walk the way you smile
The way you mess your hair
Your kind of talk it's only you, can make me stop and stare
Across the room you cross your legs I cross my heart and swear
I hold my breath I close my eyes, it's just not fair.

Your love, your love is like a hurricane
Your love, your love is like a hurricane.

When I look in your eyes I'm in the eye of the storm
Tell me truth; tell me lies you make me glad to be born
Thoughts of love in the night come rumbling through my brain
You're like an animal, girl it's physical
I never take.

Your love, your love is like a hurricane
Your love, your love is like a hurricane.

I wanna feel you crashing down, it's like thunder, it's like lightning
I wanna feel you crashing down…on me ya!
Whoa baby baby your love your love your love your love.

Your love, your love is like a hurricane
Your love, your love is like a hurricane.

Blow on me blow on me............


Too Much Too Soon
(Small, Powers *)

I should have seen her coming
I should have known right away
I should have started running
Everybody told me
I should have known from the start
What you were up to, I should have known better then
Now I knew.

Too much too soon , too much too soon.

You got the feeling things cannot fly
No matter what you get you wanna buy
Well baby what's a boy to do
Well now don't talk to samson
When I move too fast you want to jump
Well baby better buy me out.

Too much too soon , too much too soon.
Too much too soon , too much too soon.

I came out feeling hurting knowing
What else can I say
I came out feeling it's too much too soon
Well baby gotta get away.

Too much too soon , too much too soon.
Too much too soon , too much too soon.
Too much too soon , too much too soon.


Last Song
(J. Entwistle)

I go where the music takes me
A turn the music takes me home
She knows she can never shake me
The longest love I've ever known
Now I can't stop, stop living this life
One note at a time, the words you speak begin to rhyme
Just one more song one more time
This is the last song, this is the last song
I go where the music takes me
A turn the music takes me home
She took this kid from the last gig
And put a man a super door
Now I can't stop, I never want to stop
Stop playing
I'm alive I'm the survivor
Still standing where giants have stood
They're bleeding now
If only they could
You think not enough to wake the dead
Maybe they would
Home is where the music takes me
This is where the music takes me home
Home is where the music takes me
She 's a hard mistress
She never lets you go
Now you can't stop
Stop living your life
One note at a time
This is the end of the line
We are out of song we are out of time
It's time to say good night
We wish you all good night
This is the last song
This is where the music takes me home
This is the last song
We wish you all good night
Good night.


Country Hurricane
(Small, Powers *)

Your love is like a hurricane
Your love is like a hurricane
I said your love is like hurricane
Your love is like a hurricane
Now marry sheep.
