SIDE ONE

BAREFOOTIN'

Everybody get on your feet
You make me nervous when you in your seat
Take off your shoes and pat your feet
We're doing a dance that can't be beat
We're barefootin'
barefootin'
barefootin'
barefootin'

Went to a party the other night
Long Tall Sally was out of sight
She threw  her wig, and her high sneakers too
She was doing a dance without any shoes
She was barefootin'
barefootin'
barefootin'
barefootin'

Hey little girl with the red dress on
I bet you can barefoot all night long
Take off your shoes and throw them away
Come back and get them another day
barefootin'
barefootin'
barefootin'
barefootin'

Lil John Henry he said to Sue
If I can barefoot, you can barefoot too
Sue told John, I can get out here and groove
I was barefootin ever since I was two
barefootin'
barefootin'
barefootin'
barefootin'
Take off your shoes and dance
barefootin'
barefootin'
barefootin'
barefootin'

AFTER THE FIRE

After the fire the fire still burns,
the heart grows older but never ever learns.
The memories smolder and the soul always yearns,
After the fire the fire still burns.

I heard a voice asking what happens after the fire
and then the sound of a breaking window and the scream of a tire
And then the sound of Brixton gun and the scream of a  child.
The night is hot
But nothing's going to stop
This gang running wild.

After the fire the fire still burns,
The heart grows older but never ever learns.
The memories smolder and the soul always yearns,
After the fire the fire still burns.

I saw Matt Dillon in black and white
there ain't no color in memories.
He rode his brother's Harley across the TV
while I was laughing at Dom DeLuise.
Now I'm cycling all my video tapes, I'm crying and I'm joking.
I've gotta stop drinking, I've gotta stop thinking,
I've gotta stop smoking.

After the fire the fire still burns,
the heart grows older but never ever learns.
The memories smolder and the soul always yearns,
after the fire
The fire still burns, raging through the pain,
blackening the promises, the tears and the rain.
The fire will burn
'til the wind begins to turn
and it all begins again.
After the fireeeee ...Yea the fire still burns

After the fire the fire still burns,
The heart grows older but never ever learns.
The memories smolder and the soul always yearns,
after the fire the fire still burns,
the fire still burns,
After the fire the fire still burns,
the heart grows older but never ever learns.
The memories smolder and the soul always yearns,
after the fire the fire still burns.


BEHIND BLUE EYES

No one knows what it's like
To be the bad man
To be the sad man
Behind blue eyes.
No one knows what it's like
To be hated
To be fated
To telling only lies.

But my dreams they aren't as empty
As my conscience seems to be.
I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
That's never free.

No one knows what it's like
To feel these feelings
Like I do
And I blame you.
No one bites back as hard
On their anger
None of my pain and woe
Can show through.

But my dreams, they aren't as empty
As my conscience seems to be.
I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
That's never free.

When my fist clenches, crack it open
Before I use it and lose my cool.
When I smile, tell me some bad news
Before I laugh, and act like a fool.
And if I swallow anything evil
Put your finger down my throat
And if I shiver please give me a blanket
Keep me warm, let me wear your coat.

No one knows what it's like
To be the sad man
To be the bad man
Behind blue eyes.

STOP HURTING PEOPLE

A love born once must soon be born again
A  plain that died, leaving cinders to be fanned
By the wind and thrown flame
Flames like tongues impassioned in a moments burst.
Tell me my friend- why do you stand aloof from your own heart
The truth confronts you-the truth confronts you as the sea
Crushing with out detail
Impassioned and detached,
Killing with love and power in God's name.
People stop hurting people, People stop hurting people

Love conquers poses, love smashes stances,   love crushes angels into black
So you, without question, know your first love is your last.
and you will never, you never,never,will never love again.

I always wished to walk with her into restaurants,(A clammy tale)
To be seen beside her at the public bar footrail
I always wanted to be matched with her
Yet her beauty was so different to mine
My "beauty" needs an understanding and a knowledge of what I am.
Hers is enough earned thru eons; for that is what true beauty is
Time's gift to perfect humility.

May I be matched with you again
I know the match is bad
But God help me
May I be matched with you again
I know the match is bad
But God help me
May I be matched with you again
I know the match is bad
But God help me
Without your match there is no flame

People stop hurting people
People stop hurting people
People stop hurting people
People stop hurting people

I'M ONE

Every year is the same
I feel it again.
I'm a loser, no chance to win.
Leaves start falling,
Come down is calling
Loneliness starts sinking in.

But I'm one
I am one.
And I can see
That this is me
I will be,
You'll all see, I'm the one.

Where do you get
Those blue, blue jeans,
Faded, patched, secret so tight?
Where do you get,
That walk oh, so lean?
Your shoes and your shirts all just right.

But I'm one, I'm one
And I can see
That this is me
I will be,
You'll all see, I'm the one.

I got a Gibson
Without a case
But I can't get that even-tanned look on my face.
Ill-fitting clothes
And I blend in the crowd
Fingers so clumsy,
Voice too loud.
But I'm one, I'm one
I can see
That this is me
And I will be,
You'll all see, I'm the one.
I'm the one
I'm the one

I Put A Spell On You, & Save It For Later

SIDE TWO

I PUT A SPELL ON YOU

I put a spell on you
Because your mine
You better stop the things you do
I aint' lying, no I ain't lying

You know I can't stand it
The way your running round
You know I can't stand it mamma
The way you put me down
So I put a spell on you
Because your mine

Do I love ya
Do I love ya
Do I love ya
Do I love ya any how
And I don't care
I don't care if you don't want me
Because I'm yours right now
I put a spell on you
Because your mine

(guitar solo)

You know I can't stand it
I can't stand it
I can't stand it
I can't stand it when you put me down
You ought to no better mamma
I can't stand a women run around
I put a spell on you
Because
Because your mine


SAVE IT FOR LATER
written by The English Beat

Two dozen other dirty lovers
Must be a sucker for it
Cry, but I don't need my mother
Just Hold My hand while I come
To a decision on it
Sooner or later
Your legs give way, you hit the ground
Save it for later
Don't run away and let me down
Sooner or later
You hit the deck, you get found out
Sooner or later
You run away, run away and let me down

Black air and seven seas and rotten through
But what can you do?
Sometimes I don't know how get on with you lot
Sometimes I don't try
I just now, now, now, now ,now .....

Sooner or later
Your legs give way, you hit the ground
Save it for later
Don't run away and let me down
Sooner or later
You hit the deck, you get found out
Save it for later
Don't run away, don't run away and let me down

Two dozen other stupid reasons
Why we should suffer all this
I can't see teeth to find a reason
Just to him I come
To a decision on it

Sooner or later
Your legs give way, you hit the ground
Save it for later
Don't run away and let me down
Sooner or later
You hit the deck, you get found out
Save it for later
Don't run away, you run away and let me down

Why don't you hold me
Why don't you hold me and kiss me
Why Don't you hold me
Why don't you hold me and kiss me now
Save it for later baby
Save it for later honey
Don't run away, Don't run away and let me down
Don't run away, Don't run away and let me down

PINBALL WIZARD

Ever since I was a young boy,
I've played the silver ball.
From Soho down to Brighton
I must've played them all.
But I never seen anything like him
In any amusement hall...
That deaf, dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pinball!

He stands like a statue,
Becomes part of the machine.
Feeling all the bumpers,
Always playing clean.
He plays by intuition,
The digit counters fall.
That deaf, dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pinball!

He's a pinball wizard.
There has to be a twist.
A pinball wizard's got
Such a supple wrist.

How do you think he does it?
I don't know!
What makes him so good?

He ain't got no distractions,
Can't hear no buzzers and bells.
Don't see no lights a flashin',
Plays by sense of smell,
Always has a replay,
An' never tilts at all...
That deaf, dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pinball!

I thought I was
The Bally table king
But I just handed my pinball crown to him.

Even at my favorite table
He can beat my best.
His disciples lead him in
And he just does the rest.
He's got crazy flipper fingers,
Never seen him fall...
That deaf, dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pinball!!!


A LITTLE IS ENOUGH

They say that love often passes in a second
And you can never catch it up
So I'm hanging on to you as though eternity beckoned
But it's clear that the match is rough
Common sense'd tell me not to try'n continue
But I'm after a piece of that diamond in you
So keep an eye open
My spirit ain't broken
Your love is so incredible
Your body so edible
You give me an overdose of love
Just a little is enough

I'm like a connoisseur of champagne cognac
The perfume nearly beats the taste
I eat an oyster and I feel the contact
But more than one would be a waste
Some people want an endless line that's true
But all I have is a little time with you
A smile sets me reeling
A kiss feel like stealing
Your love is like heroin
This addict is mellowing
I can't pretend that I'm tough
Just a little is enough

Just like a sailor heading into the seas
There's a gale blowing in my face
The high winds scare me but I need the breeze
And I can't head for any other place
Life would seem so easy on the other tack
But even a hurricane won't turn me back
You might be an island
On the distant horizon
But the little I see
Looks like heaven to me
I don't care if the ocean gets rough
Just a little is enough

Common sense'd tell me not to try'n continue
But I'm after a piece of that diamond in you
So keep an eye open
My spirit ain't broken
Your love is so incredible
Your body so edible
You give me an overdose of love
A little is enough


EYESIGHT TO THE BLIND

Talk about your woman,
I wish you could see mine.
You talk about your woman,
I wish you could see mine.
Every time she starts to lovin'
She brings eyesight to the blind.

You know her daddy gave her magic.
I can tell by the way she walks.
You know her daddy gave her magic.
I can tell by the way she walks.
Every time she start shakin'
The dumb begin to talk.

She's got the power to heal you,
Never fear.
She's got the power to heal you,
Never fear.
Every time she start to wiggle,
The deaf begin to hear.

Talk about your woman,
I wish you could see mine.
I wish you could see her
You talk about your woman,
I wish you could see mine.
Every time she starts to shaking
She brings eyesight to the blind.

Every day we get in the queue

Won't Get Fooled Again

We'll be fighting in the street
With our children at our feet
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgment of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
And I'll get on my knees and I'll pray
We don't get fooled again

The change it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the foe, that's all
The parting on the left
Is now parting on the right
The banners were all flown in the last war

I tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
And I'll get on my knees and I'll pray
Don't get fooled again

If we happen to be left half-alive
I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky
For know that the hypnotized never lie

There's nothing in the street
That looks any different to me
The slogans are replaced, by-the-by
And the parting on the left
Is now parting on the right
And their beards have all grown longer overnight

Tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
And I'll get on my knees and I'll pray
But we don't get fooled again

Meet the new boss
Just the same as the old boss...
