Going Back

Seb

2/5

Bon… Franchement ce n’est pas terrible. Motown c’est cool, les chansons sont bonnes, Phil chante bien bien qu’on sente qu’il était déjà diminué mais l’ensemble ne décolle pas et est trop homogène. Une chanson ne ressemble pas aux autres et sort du lot : la chanson titre. 

Tracklist

(Norman J Whitfield & Edward Holland Jr.)

I love you girl, with all my heart and soul.
I can’t understand why you treat me cold.
Your every wish, girl, is my command
And that’s why I can’t seem to understand why,
Girl, girl, girl why you wanna make me blue?
I’m askin’ you girl, girl, girl why you wanna make me blue?

One day you say you love me too.
The next day you tell me that we are through.
My love for you is just a game.
But each time we play, girl, my heart feels the pain.
Girl, girl, girl why you wanna make me blue? Oh
Girl, girl, girl why you wanna make me blue? So blue

[Instrumental]

Woo girl, girl, girl why you wanna make me blue? (Make me blue)
Oh girl, oh girl, oh girl tell me why can’t you be true? (Can’t be true)
The way you treat me it just isn’t fair.
You make it so plain you just don’t care.
You have a ball around my time.
Sleepless nights are getting me tired.
Girl, girl, girl why you wanna make me blue?
I’m askin’ you girl, girl, girl why you wanna make me blue? Baby
Girl, girl, girl why you wanna make me blue?

(Edward Holland Jr., Lamont Dozier & Brian Holland)

Whenever I’m with him
Something inside starts to burnin’
And I’m filled with desire
Could it be a devil in me
Or is this the way love’s supposed to be?

It’s like a heat wave, burnin’ in my heart
I can’t keep from cryin’, it’s tearin’ me apart

Whenever he calls my name
Soft, low, sweet and plain
I feel right there, I feel that burnin’ flame
Has a high blood pressure got a hold on me
Or is this the way love’s supposed to be?

It’s like a heat wave, burnin’ in my heart
I can’t keep from cryin’, it’s tearin’ me apart

Ooh, ooh, heat wave
Ooh, ooh, heat wave

Sometimes I stare in space, tears all over my face
I can’t explain it, don’t understand it
I ain’t never felt like this before
Now that funny feelin’ has me amazed
I don’t know what to do, my head’s in a haze

It’s like a heat wave, burnin’ in my heart
I can’t keep from crying, it’s tearin’ me apart

Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, oh yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, oh yeah
I feel it burnin’, right here in my heart

(Stevie Wonder, Sylvia Moy & Henry Cosby)

Baby, everything’s alright
Uptight, out of sight
Baby, everything’s alright
Uptight, out of sight

I’m a poor man’s son, from across the railroad tracks
The only shirt I own is hangin’ on my back
But I’m the envy of every single guy
Since I’m the apple of my girl’s eye

When we go out stepping on the town for a while
My money’s low and my suit’s out of style
But it’s all right if my clothes aren’t new
Out of sight because my heart is true

She says baby everything’s alright
Uptight, out of sight
Baby, everything’s alright
Uptight, clean out of sight

She’s a pearl of a girl, I guess that’s what you might say
I guess her folks brought her up that way
The right side of the tracks, she was born and raised
In a great big old house, full of butlers and maids

She says, « No one is better than I »
I know I’m just an average guy
No football hero or smooth Don Juan
Got empty pockets, you see I’m a poor man’s son

Can’t give her the things that money can buy
But I’ll never, never, never make my baby cry
And it’s alright, what I can’t do
Out of sight because my heart is true

She says baby everything’s alright
Uptight, clean out of sight
Baby, everything’s alright
Uptight, clean out of sight
Baby, everything’s alright
Uptight

Baby, everything’s alright
Uptight, way out of sight
Baby, everything’s alright
Uptight, clean out of sight

(Gerry Goffin & Carole King)

You gotta give me some
Give me some of your lovin’
You gotta give me some of your lovin’

Now I’m not a greedy girl
I don’t need the world
(Just give me some)
Some of your lovin’ now, oh, oh, oh, oh

Now I don’t expect you to guarantee
Your faith and devotion to only me
I’m aware you got a lot of wild oats to sow
But baby when I need you
Don’t you tell me no

You gotta give me some
(Give me some of your lovin’)
Oh yes you do now
You gotta give me some of your lovin’

Now I’m not a jealous child
My demands are mild
(Just give me some)
Some of your lovin’ now, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

I know a man likes to feel that he’s been around
Before he decides to settle down
I’ve no doubt
Some day you’re gonna feel that way too
But baby, just remember
(Until you do)

You gotta give me some
(Give me some of your lovin’)
Oh yes you do now
I mean to tell you
(You gotta give me some)
Of your lovin’

Now I’m not a greedy girl
I don’t need the world
(Just give me some)
Some of your lovin’ now, oh oh, oh, oh

You gotta give me some, some of your lovin’
I mean to tell you
(You gotta give me some of your lovin’)
Oh, don’t forget about me now
I mean to tell you, oh
Ah, you gotta give me some of your lovin’
Some of your lovin’

(Edward Holland Jr. & Norman J. Whitfield)

I know you wanna leave me
But I refuse to let you go
If I have to beg and plead for your sympathy
I don’t mind ’cause you mean that much to me

Ain’t too proud to beg and you know it
Please don’t leave me girl, don’t you go
Ain’t too proud to plead, baby, baby
Please don’t leave me girl, don’t you go

Now I heard a cryin’ man is half a man
With no sense of pride
But if I have to cry to keep you I don’t mind weepin’
If it will keep you by my side

Ain’t too proud to beg, sweet darlin’
Please don’t leave me girl, don’t you go
Ain’t too proud to plead, baby, baby
Please don’t leave me girl, don’t you go

If I have to sleep on your door step all night and day
Just to keep you from walkin’ away
Let your friends laugh, even this I can stand
‘Cause I wanna keep you any way I can

Ain’t too proud to beg, sweet darlin’
Please don’t leave me girl, don’t you go
Ain’t too proud to plead, baby, baby
Please don’t leave me girl, don’t you go

Now I’ve got a love so deep in the pit of my heart
And each day it grows more and more
I’m not ashamed to come and plead to you, baby
If pleadin’ keeps you from walkin’ out the door

Ain’t too proud to beg, sweet darlin’
Please don’t leave me girl, don’t you go
Ain’t too proud to plead, baby, baby
Please don’t leave me girl
Baby, baby baby, baby, baby, please

(Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier, Edward Holland Jr.)

Girl, every single time
You take me out with you
You always flirt around
With someone new

But I never criticize
The tearful things you do
‘Cause I’m so afraid
Of losing you

But in my lonely room
Tears I don’t have to hide
‘Cause I just lock my door
And let myself go
I lay right, I lay right down and cry

Every place we go
People are whispering
About your flirting ways
And it hurts me so to hear

Oh in the public’s eye
I just push behind
All my hurt inside
I pretend that I don’t mind

But in my lonely room
Tears I don’t have to hide
In my lonely room
Tears I don’t have to hide

In my lonely room
Tears I don’t have to hide

(Edward Holland Jr., Brian Holland & Lamont Dozier)

I know you’re leaving me behind
I’m seeing you, darling, for the very last time
Show a little tenderbess before you go
Please let me feel your embrace once more

Take me in your arms, rock me, rock me a little while
Hold me darling, rock me, rock me a little while
We all must feel heartache sometime
Right now, right now can’t you see that I’m feeling mine

I tried my best to be strong, but I’m not able
I’m like a helpless child wrapped up in a cradle
Let me know joy before I grieve
Hold me, darling, before you leave

Take me in your arms, rock me, rock me a little while
Oh, darling, rock me, rock me a little while
I’m losing you and all my happiness
My life is over, I got to confess

I’ll never see your smiling face no more
I’ll never hear your knocking on my door
Before you leave me, baby, leave me behind
Please let me hold you just one more time

Take me in your arms, rock me, rock me a little while
Oh, darling, rock me, rock me a little while

Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby ……

I said I never would beg, and I said I wouldn’t plead, no
But here I am, baby, baby, baby, please
Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby please
Please, please, baby, please

Take me in your arms, rock me, rock me a little while
Hold me, darling, rock me, rock me a little while…

(Stevie Wonder)

Where has my love gone?
How can I go on?
It seems dear love has gone away

Where is my spirit?
I’m nowhere near it,
Oh yes, my love has gone astray

But I’ll blame it on the sun,
The sun that didn’t shine,
I’ll blame it on the wind and the trees

I’ll blame it on the time that never was enough,
I’ll blame it on the tide and the sea,
But, my heart blames it on me

Who poured the love out?
What made this bitter doubt?
Is peace not here for me to see?

Wish I could tell you,
What I am feeling,
But, words won’t come for me to speak

But I’ll blame it on the sun,
That didn’t fill the sky,
I’ll blame it on the birds and the trees

I’ll blame it on the day that ended once too soon,
I’ll blame it on the nights that could not be,
But, my heart blames it on me

[Background]…Yeh, yeh, yeh, ooh,
Your heart blames it on you this time

(Norman J. Whitfield & Barrett Strong)

It was the third of September
That day I’ll always remember, yes I will
‘Cause that was the day, that my daddy died
I never got a chance to see him
Never heard nothin’ but bad things about him
Momma I’m depending on you, to tell me the truth
Momma just hung her head and said, son

[Chorus]
Papa was a rolling stone,
Where ever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died, all he left us was alone
Papa was a rolling stone, (my son, yeah)
Where ever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died, all he left us was alone

Hey Momma!
Is it true what they say that Papa never worked a day, in his life
And Momma, some bad talk goin’ round town sayin’ that
Papa had three outside children
And another wife, and that ain’t right
Heard some talk Papa doing some store front preachin’
Talking about saving souls and all the time leechin’
Dealing in dirt, and stealing in the name of the Lord
Momma just hung her head and said

Papa was a rolling stone, (my son)
Where ever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died, all he left us was alone
Hey Papa was a rolling stone, (dad gumma it)
Where ever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died, all he left us was alone

Hey Momma,
I heard Papa called himself a jack of all trades
Tell me is that what sent Papa to an early grave
Folks say Papa would beg, borrow, steal
To pay his bills
Hey Momma,
Folks say Papa never was much on thinking
Spent most of his time chasing women and drinking
Momma I’m depending on you, to tell me the truth
Momma looked up with a tear in her eye and said, son

Papa was a rolling stone, (well, well, well, well)
Where ever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died, all he left us was alone (lone, lone, lone, alone)
Papa was a rolling stone,
Where ever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died, all he left us was alone

(I said) Papa was a rolling stone, (yes he was my son)
Where ever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died, all he left us was alone
(My daddy was, yes he was, yeah he was)
(Papa was a rolling stone,
Where ever he laid his hat was his home)

(Stevie Wonder & Syreeta Wright)

I never dreamed you’d leave in summer
I thought you would go then come back home
I thought the cold would leave by summer
But my quiet nights will be spent alone

You said there would be warm love in springtime
That was when you started to be cold
I never dreamed you’d leave in summer
But now I find myself all alone

You said then you’d be the life in autumn
Said you’d be the one to see the way
I never dreamed you’d leave in summer
But now I find my love has gone away

Why didn’t you stay?

(Edward Holland Jr., Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland)

Standing in the shadows of love
I’m getting ready for the heartaches to come
Can’t you see me standing in the shadows of love
I’m getting ready for the heartaches to come

I wanna run but there’s no way to go
‘Cause heartaches will follow me I know
Without your love, a love I need
It’s the beginning of the end for me

‘Cuz you’ve taken away all of my reasons for living
When you pushed aside all the love I’ve been giving
Now wait a minute

Didn’t I treat you right, now baby didn’t I
Didn’t I do the best I could, now didn’t I, didn’t I?

So don’t you leave me standing in the shadows of love
I’m getting ready for the heartaches to come
Don’t you see me standing in the shadows of love
Trying the best to get ready for the heartaches to come

All alone I’m destined to be
With misery my only company
It may come today, and it might come tomorrow
But it’s for sure I’ve ain’t got nothing but sorrow

Now won’t your conscience kinda bother you
How can you watch me cry after all I’ve done for you?
Now hold on a minute

Gave you all the love I had, now didn’t I
When you needed me I was always there, now wasn’t I

Standing in the shadows of love
Getting ready for the heartaches to come
I’m trying not to cry out loud
You know cryin’, it ain’t gonna help me none

What did I do to cause all this grief?
Now what did I say to make you wanna leave?
Now wait a minute

I gave my heart and soul to you now didn’t I
And didn’t I always treat you good now didn’t I

I’m standing in the shadows of love
I’m getting ready for the heartaches to come
Don’t you see me standing in the shadows of love
Trying the best to get ready for the heartaches to come

Oh, I’m standing in the shadows of love

(Curtis Mayfield)

I’ve been trying hard to forget
That you’ve been cheating
Wishin’ you I’d never met
‘Cause you’ve been cheating

Can’t you know lies can be seen in your eyes
And from wrong you’ll never be free
While you sit cryin’, you’ve been lyin’
You’ve been cheatin’, cheatin’ on me

Yeah, you made me suspect and I know
You don’t want me
Cookies crumble, and that’s how it goes
You don’t want me

Can’t you know lies can be seen in your eyes
And from wrong you’ll never be free
While you sit cryin’, you’ve been lyin’
You’ve been cheatin’, cheatin’ on me

Another lover you discover
Our love’s gone and I don’t know why
It’s just as well, though at last I do know
All you said was just a lie

So I’m trying hard to forget
That you’ve been cheating
Wishin’ you I’d never met
‘Cause you’ve been cheating

Can’t you know lies can be seen in your eyes
And from wrong you’ll never be free
While you sit cryin’, you’ve been lyin’
You’ve been cheatin’, cheatin’ on me

Ooh, ooh, baby – you’ve been cheating
You must not love me – you’ve been cheating
You must not want me – you’ve been cheating
You just don’t care

(William « Smokey » Robinson)

If it’s love that you’re running from, there’s no hiding place.
(You can’t run, you can’t hide, you can’t run, you can’t hide)
Love has problems I know but they’re problems, we’ll just have to face.
Oh yeah, yeah.
If you just put your hand in mine,
We’re gonna leave all our troubles behind.
Keep on walkin’, don’t look back. (Don’t look back)
And don’t look back. Oh yeah, yeah.
And don’t look back, baby. (Don’t look back)
(The past is behind you, let nothing remind you.)

If your first lover broke your heart,
There’s something that can be done.
(You don’t run, you don’t hide, you don’t run, you don’t hide)
Don’t end your faith in love because of what he’s done.
So if you just put your hand in mine,
We’re gonna leave all our troubles behind.
Keep on walking, don’t look back. (don’t look back)
Forget about the past now.
Don’t look back, baby. (don’t look back)
Keep on walking and don’t look back. Hmmm (don’t look back)
(The past is behind you, let nothing remind you)

[Instrumental]

Love can be a beautiful thing.
Though your first love let you down.
Oh yeah, yeah
‘Cause I know we can make love bloom, baby.
The second time around.
Oh yeah, yeah
So if you just put your hand in mine,
We’re gonna leave all our troubles behind.
Keep on pushing and don’t look back. (don’t look back)
Now, till I say, we won’t look back, girl. (don’t look back)
Keep on walking and won’t look back. (don’t look back)
Forget about the past now, baby.
And don’t look back.
Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, don’t look back.

(William « Smokey » Robinson)

I don’t like you but I love you
Seems that I’m always thinking of you
Oh ho ho, you treat me badly
I love you madly, you’ve really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me

Baby, I don’t want you but I need you
Don’t want to kiss you but I need to
Oh ho ho, you do me wrong now
My love is strong now, you’ve really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me

Baby, I love you and all I want you to do
Is just hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me
Tighter, tighter

I want to leave you, don’t want to stay here
Don’t want to spend another day here
Oh ho ho, I want to split now
I just can quit now, you’ve really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me

Baby, I love you and all I want you to do
Is just hold me, please, hold me, squeeze, hold me, hold me

You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me

(Phil Spector, Peter Anders & Vincent Poncia Jr.)

Do I want you for my baby?
Do I want you by my side?
Do I wanna run & kiss your lips
& say you’re my lovin’ guy?
Oh oh oh (oh oh) oh oh oh (oh oh oh)
(Do I love you? Yes I love you)

Do I need your arms around me?
Do I live my life for you?
Do I always feel so warm each time
I look in your eyes of blue?
Oh oh oh (oh oh) oh oh oh (oh oh oh)
(Do I love you? Yes I love you) oh oh

& do I need you every minute of the day?
& would I die if you should ever go away?
& does it mean so much to feel your tender touch?
Do I love you? Do I love you?

Oh I swear I’m gonna get you
If it takes me all my life
I’ll hope & pray & dream & sleep
‘Cause I’m gonna be your wife
Oh oh oh (oh oh) oh oh oh (oh oh oh)
(Do I love you? Yes I love you)

(repeat & fade)
(Do I love you? Yes I love you)

(Brian Holland, Edward Holland Jr. & Lamont Dozier)

(Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland & Edward Holland Jr.)

Darlin’, darlin’
If I could have you to call my very own
I work my fingers through the bone, I am alone
To you I’d always come home

‘Cause there’s something about you, baby
That makes me keep loving you
There’s something about you, baby
Makes me love you just a little bit more
Truly does, just a little bit more

Sweet sweet thing, I’m satisfied
Sweet sweet thing, you set my soul on fire
I need you, yeah, badly
No matter what price I have to pay
‘Cause without you, darlin’, I’d worry hard
I love you anyway

‘Cause there’s something about you, baby
That makes me keep loving you
There’s something about you, baby
Makes me love you just a little bit more
Truly does, just a little bit more

Sweet sweet thing, I’m satisfied
Sweet sweet thing, you’re my only desire

I’m just your puppet on a string
And tears sometimes it brings
But do me any way you wanna when you wanna
I’ll keep you just the same

‘Cause there’s something about you, baby
That makes me keep loving you
There’s something about you, baby
Makes me love you just a little bit more
Truly does, just a little bit more

You’re a real heartbreaker
You will never let me sit down
There’s something about you, baby
That shakes me all up inside
You’re a real heartbreaker
And I need you just the same
[Incomprehensible]

(Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier, Edward Holland Jr.)

Love is here
And oh, my darling, now, you’re gone
Love is here
And oh, my darling, now, now, you’re gone

You persuaded me to love you
And I did but instead of tenderness
I found heartache instead

Into your arms I fell
So unaware of the loneliness
That was waiting there

You closed the door to your heart
And you turned the key
Locked your love away from me

Love is here
And oh, my darling, now, you’re gone
You made me love you
And oh, my darling, now, you’re gone

You said loving you
Would make life beautiful
With each passing day

But as soon as love
Came into my heart
You turned and you walked
Just walked away

You stripped me of my dreams
You gave me faith, then took my hope
Look at me now

Look at me
See what loving you has done to me
Look at my face
See how cryin’ has left it’s trace

After you made me all your own
Then you left me all alone
You made your words sound so sweet
Knowing that your love I couldn’t keep

My heart cries out for your touch
But you’re not there
And the lonely cry fades in the air

Love is here
And oh, my darling, now, you’re gone
Love is here
And oh, my darling, now, you’re gone

You made me love you
Oh, my darling, now, you’re gone
You made me love you
Ooh, oh, oh, my darling, now, you’re gone

(Stevie Wonder & Ivy Jo Hunter)

I remember yet before we met
When every night and day
I had to live the life of a lonely one.
And I remember meeting you,
Discovering love could be so true
When shared by two, ‘stead of only one.

When you said you loved me
We could not be parted.
Said, I built my world around you
And I’m truly glad I found you

Because loving you has made my life sweeter than ever.
I never felt so good before.
Loving you has made my life sweeter than ever.
Yes it has, you know it has.

Each night I pray we’ll never part
Because the love within my heart
Grows stronger from day to day.
Best I try, hard I try
To reassure and satisfy.
You know I’d be lost if you went away.

[Bridge:]
Because loving you has made my life sweeter than ever.
Yes it has, I know it has.
Loving you has made my life sweeter than ever.

[Bridge:]
Because loving you has made my life sweeter than ever.
I never felt so good before.
Loving you has made my life sweeter than ever.
Yes it has, you know it has.
Loving you has made my life sweeter than ever.
Don’t you know my baby there.
Loving you has made my life sweeter than ever.

(Warren Moore, Robert Rogers, William « Smokey » Robinson & Marvin Tarplin)

Honey, you do me wrong but still I’m crazy about you
Stay away too long and I can’t do without you
Every chance you get, you seem to hurt me more and more
But each hurt makes my love stronger than before

I know flowers grow through rain
But how can love grow through pain

Ain’t that peculiar
A peculiarity
Ain’t that peculiar, baby
Peculiar as can be, oh

You tell me lies that should be obvious to me
But I’m so much in love with you baby ’til I don’t want to see
But that things you do and say are designed to make me blue
It’s a dog gone shame my love for you makes all your lies seem true

But if the truth makes love last longer
Why do lies make my love stronger

Ain’t that peculiar, baby
Peculiar as can be
Ain’t that peculiar
A peculiarity, yeah yeah

I cried so much just like a child that’s lost his toy
Maybe baby, you think these tears I cry are tears of joy
A child can cry so much until you do everything they say
But unlike a child, my tears don’t help me to get my way

I know love can last through years
But how can love last through tears

Ain’t that peculiar, baby
Peculiar as can be
Ain’t that peculiar, honey
Peculiar as can be

Said, « I don’t understand it, baby »
It’s so strange sometimes
Ain’t that peculiar, darlin’
Oh

(Robert Rogers, Warren Moore, Marvin Tarplin & William « Smokey » Robinson)

Going to a go go
Don’t you wanna go
And that’s alright, tell me, yeah
That’s alright, yeah

(Edward Holland Jr., Lamont Dozier & Brian Holland)

Running around the corridors
Blood on the walls
Blood on the floors
And your brain is full of fear
Evil laughs and dreadful cries
Nowhere to run nowhere to hide
Seems like death is standing near

[CHORUS]
Nowhere to run
Nowhere to run
What the hell is going on

There’s killer behind you back
Just waiting for attack
And your heart is beating fast
Your body’s shaking, you’re going insane
Something’s going on in your brain
Death will overtake you at last

[CHORUS]

The might is over, the dawn is breaking
All night long you have been waiting
It’s cleaning up inside your head
You think you’re safe, you’re feeling high
But you’re wrong I’ll tell you why
Nobody escapes the castle of death

[CHORUS]

(Curtis Mayfield)

I wanna talk about my baby, yeah, yeah
With her pretty smile, yeah, yeah
She’s ’bout to drive me crazy, yeah, yeah
Makes my heart beat wild

So everybody say, yeah, yeah, yeah
Everybody say, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, everybody say, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I want to talk about my baby, yeah, yeah
She does the walk real nice, yeah, yeah
There’s no questions about maybe
For her, I’d make any sacrifice

So everybody say, yeah, yeah, yeah
Let me hear you say, yeah, yeah, yeah
Let me hear you say, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

And when she walks that walk
I can’t help but feel that she’s for real
And when she talks that talk
I can’t quite explain just how I feel
Talking about my baby

I want to talk about my baby, yeah, yeah
To me, she’s everything, yeah, yeah
She might fuss and call me lazy
But to her, I’m still the king

So everybody say, yeah, yeah, yeah
Well, everybody say, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, everybody say, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Talking about my baby
You know we’re talking about my baby
Talking about my baby
No one else but me

My baby and me
She’s my baby, oh
[Incomprehensible]

(Marvin Gaye, Ivy Jo Hunter, William Stevenson)

OK, talk to you
South America, Australia, France, Germany, UK, Africa

Calling out around the world
Are you ready for a brand new beat
Summer’s here and the time is right
For dancing in the streets

They’re dancing in Chicago
Down in New Orleans
In New York City

All we need is music, sweet music
There’ll be music everywhere
They’ll be swinging, swaying, records playing
Dancing in the street, oh

It doesn’t matter what you wear, just as long as you are there
So come on, every guy, grab a girl, everywhere, around the world
They’ll be dancing, dancing in the street

It’s an invitation across the nation, a chance for folks to meet
They’ll be laughing and singing, music swinging
Dancing in the street

Philadelphia, PA
Baltimore in DC now
Don’t forget the motor city
On the streets of Brazil
Back in the USSR
No matter where you are

All we need is music, sweet music
There’ll be music everywhere
They’ll be swinging, swaying, records playing
Dancing in the street, oh

It doesn’t matter what you wear
Just as long as you are there
So come on every guy, grab a girl, everywhere, around the world
They’ll be dancing, dancing in the streets

Way down in L.A., everyday
Dancing in the streets
Cross in China too
Me and you
Dancing in the street

Don’t you know
They’ll be dancing
Dancing in the street
Dancing in the street

(Gerry Goffin & Carole King)

I think I’m going back
to the things I learned so well in my youth
I think I’m returning to
the days when I was young enough to know the truth

Now there are no games to only pass the time
No more electric trains, no more trees to climb
Thinking young and growing older is no sin
And I can play the game of life to win

I can recall a time
when I wasn’t ashamed to reach out to a friend
Now I think I’ve got
a lot more than my toys to lend

Now there’s much to do than watch my sailboat glide
And every day can be my magic carpet ride
A little bit of freedom is all we lack
So catch me if you can, I’m going back

A little bit of courage is all we lack
So catch me if you can, I’m going back
Going back
