Crazy Like A Fox
Al Staehely
Camp Music Co.- ASCAP

Hello everybody and welcome.
Hello

Stand back you got to give the girls room to move.
Stand back you got to let'em  enter on through.
I know you think she's acting crazy. 
And she's playing crazy games for you
But she's crazy like a fox
And that fox  got her eyes on you

Stand back you got to give the girl  room to dance.
Stand back she's goona love ya, if you gonna  have a chance
I know you think she's acting to try one
And she's playing crazy games with you
But she's crazy like a fox
And that fox got her eyes on you

(Guitar Solo)

Stand back you got to give the little lady room to breath.
Stand back I can see your trembling at your  knees.
I know you think she's acting crazy.
And she's playing crazy games for you
But she's crazy like a fox
And that fox has got her eyes on you.
But she's crazy like a fox
And that fox has got her eyes on you.
I said she's crazy like a fox
And that fox has got her eyes on you


Solid Gold
Nickey Barclay
Brintree Music/ Basic Brown Songs-BMI

It's number one
(It's number one)
On your local radio
( On your local radio)
In the hall of fame, I'll be named
For my contribution.

It's solid gold
(It's sold gold)
I'm over come with joy
( And he's over come with joy)
And now I've topped the charts
Bless your hearts
I'm an institution.

I tip my hat to
( I tip my hat to)
Captains of industry
( Captains of industry)
You made me what I am,
a once unknown production
I'm a household word today ev.

And I want to tell the world
(And he wants to tell the world)
That the tax will bite
( Bite)
It's all right
(Right)
Because I'm making millions.

Solid gold, solid gold
 (over Guitar solo)

 I'm on my way
(He's on his way)
To a life of luxury
( To a life of luxury)
And now I can't back out
There is no doubt,
I was meant to make it.

(Taken all this time to hear him say...)

It's solid gold
(Solid gold)
Solid gold
All mine
Solid solid gold
Lovely solid gold
Haaaa!

Lots and lots of solid solid gold
Give me more MCA

Don't Worry Baby/Teenage Idol
MCA  40316-Released 1974. (USA)

Don't Worry Baby
Brian Wilson/Roger Christian
Irving Music Inc- BMI

Well its been building up inside of me
For oh I don't know how long
I don't know why
But I keep thinking
Something's bound to go wrong

But she looks in my eyes
And makes me realize
And she says "Don't worry baby"
Don't worry baby
Don't worry baby
Everything will turn out alright
Don't worry baby
Don't worry baby
Don't worry baby

I guess I should've kept my mouth shut
When I started to brag about my car
But I can't back down now
Cause I pushed the other guys too far

She makes me come alive
And makes me realize
When she says "Don't worry baby"
Don't worry baby
Don't worry baby
Everything will turn out alright
Don't worry baby
Don't worry baby
Don't worry baby

She told me "Baby, when you race today
Just take along my love with you
And if you know how much I loved you
Baby nothing could go wrong with you"

Oh what she does to me
When she makes love to me
And she says "Don't worry baby"
Don't worry baby
Don't worry baby
Everything will turn out alright
Don't worry baby
Don't worry baby
Don't worry baby

Oh what she does to me
When she makes love with  me
And she says "Don't worry baby"

Don't worry baby
Don't worry baby
Everything will turn out alright
Don't worry baby
Don't worry baby
Everything will turn out alright


One Night Stand
Dennis Larden
Matragun Music, Inc.-BMI

Heard the call and I packed it all,
and I'm on the road again.
You can help to ease my low,
and I will be your friend.
But the morning brings the sunlight,
and the sunlight brings my friend.
So I say goodbye to lonely I want LA back

One night stand in New York City
Lights are bright and the girls are pretty
Held her heart and I held her hand
Good bye lady.
I'm a one night stand.

Oklahoma, Arizona,
wish I knew for sure.
Came to town and I held my ground,
that's what I came hear for.
But the voices in the distance,
and their calling me back home.
I'll be leaving in the morning,
guess my fate is not my own.

One night stand in New York City
Lights are bright and the girls are pretty
Held her heart and I held her hand
Good bye lady.
I'm a one night stand.

(Solo)

Gypsy queens and magazines,
living on the land.
Don't make ties and don't lies,
do the best you can.
But of every place I've been to,
and of every place I've seen.
I feel lonesome among strangers,
I feel naked without strings.

One night stand in New York City
Lights are bright and the girls are pretty
Held her heart and I held her hand
Good bye lady.
I'm a one night stand.

Good bye lady.
I'm a one night stand.


The Kids Are Alright
Pete Townshend
Track Music, Inc.-BMI

I don't mind
 Other guys dancing with my girl
That's fine, I know'em all pretty well
But I know sometimes I must get out in the light
Better leave her behind well  the kids are alright
The kids are alright

Sometimes, I feel I gotta get away
Bells chime, I know I gotta get away
But  I know if I don't I'll go out of my mind
Better leave her behind well the kids are alright

I don't mind, other guys dancing with my girl
That's fine, I know'em all pretty well
But I know sometimes I must get out in the light
Better leave her behind well the kids are alright
The kids are alright

Sometimes I feel I gotta get away
Bells chime, I know I gotta get away
And I know if I don't I'll go out of my mind
Better leave her behind well the kids are alright
The kids are alright
The kids are alright
The kids are alright...


THE OTHER SIDE

Move Over Ms. L
John Lennon
Lennon Music Corp/ ATV Music Corp-BMI.

Well, now the underground and overjoyed, they come out just the same,
don't wanna get to real man, just wanna play the game.
I guess you knew it all along we was singing in the rain,
can't get to hipped to the down trip, the ship is sailing yet,
and if it sinks you know, that all you really get is wet.

Move over, Ms L.
You know I wish you well.
Move over, Ms L.
You know I wish you well.
Move over, Ms L.
You know I wish you well

(Guitar solo)

Now to err is something human and forgiving so divine,
I'll forgive your trespasses if you forgive mine.
Life's a deal you knew it when you signed the dotted line,
they nail you to the paper put a rope around your neck.
And so we sing along the boy stood on the burning deck.

Move over, Ms L.
You know I wish you well.
Move over, Ms L.
You know I wish you well.
Move over, Ms L.
You know I wish you well

(Guitar Solo and Sax Solo)

Well now momma poppa told me son you better watch your head,
your head is full of snakes boy you're better red than dead.
They're starving back in China that's what they always said.
Can't get head in the head shop yer jeans is full of crap,
you're full of beans you're in your teens,
you lost your Momma's road map.


Move over, Ms L.
You know I wish you well.
Move over, Ms L.
You know I wish you well.
Move over, Ms L.
You know I wish you well


Teenage Idol
J Lewis
Nelson Music Publishing Co.-ASCAP

Some people call me a teenage idol
Some people say they envy me
I guess they got no way of knowing
How lonesome I can be

I need somebody to be my baby
Someone to tell my troubles to
I got no time to ever find her
'Cause I'm just passing through

I travel around from town to lonely town
I guess I'll always be just a rolling stone
If I find fortune and fame
And lots of people know my name
That won't mean a thing if I'm all alone

I got no rest when I'm feeling weary
I got to pack my bags and go
I got to be somewhere tomorrow
To smile and do my show

I travel around from town to lonely town
I guess I'll always be just a rolling stone
If I find fortune and fame
And lots of people know my name
That won't mean a thing if I'm all alone

Some people call me a teenage idol
Some people say they envy me
I guess they got no way of knowing
How lonesome I can be
How lonesome I can be


Back Door Sally
John Marascalco
Robin Hood Music Co.-BMI

Back door Sally won't you let me in
I'm out here in the alley can't you hear me knocking
I'm nervous as a pussycat in a dog pound
Come on Sally girl stop your messing around
We can have lots of fun, balling to the break of dawn
Back door Sally won't you let me in?.

Back door Sally hey open up that door
I know your in there I can hear rock and roll
I can hear you dancing in the hall all by yourself
Are you gonna  leave me here playing with myself
We can have lots of fun, balling to the break of dawn
Back door Sally won't you let me in?.

Back door Sally
Back door Sally
Back door Sally
Back door Sally
Back door Sally
Back door Sally
Let me in

Hey Sally love my knuckles getting sore
I've been knocking thirty minutes on your back door
The music's getting louder every minute it seems
Is there someone else in there with ya doin the thing
We can have lots of fun, balling to the break of dawn
Back door Sally won't you let me in?.

(Guitar Solo)

We can have lots of fun, balling to the break of dawn
Back door Sally won't you let me in?.
Hu....................n
Back door Sally

In My Life
John Lennon-Paul McCartney
Maclen Music, Inc.-BMI

There are places I remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
In my life I love you more


Together
Harry Nilsson
Dunbar Music, Inc.-ASCAP

Life Isn't easy when two are divided, and one has decided
To bring down the curtain, but one things for certain
There's nothing to keep them together.

How does it happen, that two can be tender
And one be the lender of love and emotion
That covered the ocean of sadness
That keep them together.

Love will start with you, it is easy to measure it
Bury a treasure in it It's not an adventure
It's more to be certain
That it had to be shared together

Love when it's growing is full of surprises
Its temperature rises, from hire to hire
And then turns to fire
Which has to be shared together

( Ringo Starr and Keith rap)

Love when it's growing is full of surprises
Its temperature rises, from hire to hire
And then turns into fire
Which has to be shared together

How does it happen, that two can be tender
And one be the lender of love and emotion
That covered the ocean of sadness
That keep them together.
