Some People

  Some people think they were born out of wisdom
  Some people think they were bred out of grace
  Some people think they're alive out of glory
  Some people think through the hole in their face

  Some people are so fine
  And some people ain't you, and some people ain't me
  And some people are something that I don't ever want to be

  Some people think that I'm acting naively
  Some people think I'm not thinking things right
  Some people think we don't look square at each other
  Spite is the main driving force in my life

Only One Winner

There is only one winner
There is only one prize
Whoever gets your heart is the winner
There is only one winner
I'm at war with a man that I still haven't seen
It's a fight for life, if I lose you I'll die
Somebody's got to lose you and that's why

There is only one winner
There is no second place
I only know I must be the winner
There is nothing to lose but the sight of your face
I can't stay around if I know you're not mine
Somebody's gonna be lost in your mind

There's a line I don't want to have to follow behind
And I just can't see myself hugging you, loving you
There is only one winner
You're the one to decide
You've got to tell me who is the winner
Tell me who gets the broken heart, who gets the bride
Not a thing I can do - it depends upon you
But nobody wants to win more than I do

I can't lie, and I'll do anything to show you my side
I won't lie, no lie
I'll do anything to bring you over to my side
Take your time, take your time
If you want all my time is yours
Time is yours to make me the winner

Kicks

  Well you thought you found your answer
     on that magic carpet ride last night
  When you wake up in the morning
     the world still gets you uptight
  There's nothing that you ain't tried
     to fill the emptiness inside
  But when you come back down girl,
     you still ain't feeling right

  You think you're going to find yourself
     a little bit of paradise
  Well it ain't happened yet
     so girl you better think twice
  Can't you see no matter what you do,
     you'll never run away from you
  And if you keep on running,
     you'll still have the pay the price

  Don't you know that
     kicks just keep getting harder to find
  And all your kicks
     ain't bringing you peace of mind
  Before you find out it's too late girl,
     you better get straight
  Nobody told me (kicks)

  No, you don't need to help
  You face the world each day
  That road goes nowhere
  I going to help you find yourself another way

Resolution

  Think of something I can send her while I'm thinking
  Can't remember when I had such fun
  Maybe later it won't matter
  No spent feelings looking at her
  When she's out of sight, if she's out of mind
  Wondering all the time did I do it right
  Something tells me though she's left me, it's not over
  Still I thought we'd had a very nice time

It's Not That Easy

  I know you think I've done something wrong
  I'm only trying to see myself through your eyes
  And put myself where I belong
  You think I'm hurting, I can't make you see
  I can't love you when the person you love isn't me

  I can't stop feeling, my heart still feels like before
  How can I tell you to make you see what I mean
  I couldn't mean it anymore
  If I could see you I'd try to explain
  You're my heart's life, it can't take the pain
  I'm alive - keep me alive

  I'm not the guy that you think I'll turn out to be
  You knew somebody with love too easy to say
  But girl you know that isn't me
  It's not that easy to say I'm in love
     'til it's something we both are sure of
  If you want me to say I'm in love
     make it something we both are sure of 

Old Time Lovemaking

One for the money, one for the lady
Two is the price to make the style of the day
Six days awaiting, now it's together
All that's forgotten can be picked up along the way
I'm of single mind, you know
I know what I want and I know what you need
You're looking at me
You're looking at the man home free

Got to get into that old time lovemaking
Old time, old time making of love

Time for the lady, time for the master
Time is awaistin' 'til it's time to get down
Fire on the heart side, love in the vinyards
Run down the reasons why we bother to stay around
I believe by now we know
My head is a song and my soul is a wire
My heart is a fire
I'm burning up with that desire

Let's go down, now everybody's waiting there
Nobody's done a thing like this before
Do it again
When you're standing on the floor
It's all together two in love (I love you)
Send [...] where it is impossible
Hold my hand, hold my hand
I gotta get away from here

Play it by ear now, play it by ear
Please start it once and then play it by ear
Please start it once again, play it by ear now
Can't quite remember when my brother told me to hear
What did he say?
I wish that he were here today
To see me digging that old time love making

Magic Me

  Innocent angel with your evil mind
  But not around to see me plot the perfect crime
  It makes me dizzy thinking just what you might do
  And if you should find that I'm as evil as you

  Magic Me, know just what you hide girl, Magic me

  It isn't just talent 'cause it took me years
  And girls like you only want to see my tears
  I'd like to sit back now just to picture the fun
  And see your reaction when the damage is done

  Magic Me, know just where you hide girl, Magic me

  The spell is very simple and it's worked so far
  It's quick and very painful and it leaves a scar
  Justice is all right with me
  And I'll treat you just like you treated me

Loosen Up

  Hi everybody, we're the Nazz from Philadelphia, home of tuna fish hoagie.  In 
  Philadelphia, we do a little thing called the loosen up.  It goes like this.  
  First we loosen up on the drums.  OK, now we loosen up on the bass.  All right 
  let the guitar player fall in.  Now then, now then, the organ player.  Get 
  loose everybody.  Do the loosen up.  You can do it now.  Ain't nothing to it 
  now.  Loosen up baby.  Get loose.  Hang loose baby.  Hang loose mother.  Hang 
  loose fungo bat. 

Take The Hand

There's a hand that reaches
Reaches from a heart
One that isn't able
One that doesn't know just where to start

So it starts to tremble
Gives itself away
Strains to find a gesture
Something that the heart can easily say

Take the hand
It would mean so much to the heart to touch you
Play the part
Would you hold the hand and warm the heart

And take the heart that's waiting
Open it and find
There's a heart that's reaching
There's a heart that's reaching from inside

How Can That Be Beautiful?

  Believe me I would rather say nothing than lie
  But have you heard about that so-called beautiful guy
  I was begging for some money at the usual time
  The only thing he gave me was a lousy dime

  How can you call that beautiful
  Why can't you see that I'm beautiful
  How can you call that beautiful
  Why can't you see how beautiful I am

  I never paid him much attention before
  I think I know why I never noticed him more
  He doesn't pay enough attention to me
  He's a nice enough guy but he's not what I am

  You believe me, I believe every word you say
  So tell me what you did to be beautiful today
  It's not that I think you're not a beautiful lot
  I wouldn't want to hang around with someone who's not

  How can you call that beautiful
  Why can't I see that you're beautiful
  How can you call that beautiful
  Why can't I see how beautiful you are too

  You're a nice enough guy
  But you're not what you'd have me believe
  I guess we're not as beautiful as we thought
  But it really doesn't matter
     as long as we're all just as ugly

  I guess I really have made a lot of mistakes
  And maybe I haven't got what it takes
  The stuff that I need to be a beautiful me
  I'm a nice enough guy
     but I'm not what I'd have you believe

Plenty Of Lovin'

  I've got plenty of love for you
  Golden rings for your fingers too
  Well I can dance and tell jokes too
  If you'll buy me a drink of my favorite brew

  Let's make plans full of fun and games
  I'll sing you a song, you can call me names
  I'd love to hear anything you say
  Just another few dollars, I'll be on my way

  I've got plenty of love for sure
  A mind that's clean and a heart that's pure
  So let's get together for a couple more
  'Cause I've got plenty of love that's for sure

Christopher Columbus

  Once upon a time I had this idea
  That the world was round like me
  So I asked the queen for three fine ships
  To sail across the sea

  Traveling with hoodlums as my crewman
  Made me quite a little scared
  Luckily I found that in the new world
  Somebody was already there

  I wasn't very sure just what to call them
  See the funny clothes they wear
  So I called them Indians
  'Cause I knew they were already there

You Are My Window

  You are my window
  You cast my shadow
  All in the light is you
  All I ever saw in the love light was you
  All I knew
  You are my marrow
  You cast my sorrow
  You feel the world for me
  You are what the world isn't feeling for me
  And the key
  Here with me
  And the world is black but I can't see my window
  You are my prism
  You are my reason
  You're what I want to be
  You are everything that I want you to be
  You're my key
  Set me free
  Open up my mind
  Make me be the soul you hope to find
  Keep me in line
  We know I'm not all I should be feeling
  Don't make me fake it
  I'm not all love sense
  Not all,
     always,
     not all,
     free and,
     not all,
     me and,
     not all
  You are,
     you are,
     you are,
     you are,
     you are my window
  You're my everyday
     my pathway,
     you're my mind,
     my hope,
     my light,
     my dream,
     my sleep
  You are my pillow
  You are my willow
  You shouldn't wait for me
  No one need weep for me anymore
  You're my door
