That's Alright Mama
(Arthur Crudup)

Well that's alright My Mama
That's alright with you
 That's alright now mama baby anyway you do, that's alright
 That's alright, that's alright my Mama, anyway you do.

 Mama, she done told me
Poppa done told me too
 That little girl you're foolin' with, she ain't no good for you
And it's alright, that's alright, that's alright Mama, anyway you do.

 Di da di dididi, Di da di ,ya da di dididi
That's alright, that's alright,that's alright now Mama, anyway you chose.

(Guitar Solo)

 I'm leavin' town tomorrow.
I'm leavin' town for sure.
Then you won't be bothered
 With me hangin' 'round your door.
But that's alright, that's alright, that's alright Mama, anyway you do.


Harlem Shuffle
(Relf/Nelson)

You move it to the left and you go for yourself (go for yourself)
You move it to the right if it takes all night (takes all night)
Come on baby, with a whole lot of soul
Don't move it too fast and you make it last

You scratch, scratch, scratch  just like a monkey yeah you do  (real. yea)
You slide it to the limbo  how low can you go (how low can you go)
Now come on baby now get into your slide
Ride ride ride and do the Harlem shuffle
Yeah yeah yeah to the Harlem shuffle
Yeah yeah yeah to the Harlem shuffle

Hitch hitch hike baby across the floor
Wo Wo Wo I can't stand it no more
Now come on baby, now get into your slide
Won't you ride ride ride little pony ride


Shake shake shake, shake a tail feather baby
Shake shake shake, shake a tail feather baby
Shake shake shake, shake a tail feather baby
Shake shake shake, shake a tail feather baby

"Ok that's enough"

Yeah yeah yeah do the Harlem shuffle
"It's the only one we can keep warm"
Yeah yeah yeah do the Harlem shuffle
"I got no pay, I got no shoes"
Yeah yeah yeah do the Harlem shuffle
" Harlem shuffle yea I'm gonna shuffle"
Yeah yeah yeah do the Harlem shuffle
Yeah yeah yeah do the Harlem shuffle
Yeah yeah yeah do the Harlem shuffle........ETC

Love On The Air
(P-Townshend, D-Gilmour)

Love on the air I keep transmitting but reception is hazy
I don't get an answer keep sending it faster Always knew it was crazy
To put my love on the air.

No one will hurt me again
No one will cause me to lie
No one control me by pain
No one can cause me to cry
I was looking for love
In wandering eyes
Like a ship trying to fix on a beacon
I learned how to sigh
On the ribbon and wires
It's a habit that's so hard to weaken

No one will ever manipulate
Make me promise to do or die
No one can make me hesitate
What can I lose if they try
I was looking for love
In wandering eyes
Like a ship trying to fix on a beacon
Contradicted - conspired
I connived and designed
Nothing on earth could arrest me.

(Reception is hazy)
When you put your love on the air
(Always knew it was crazy)
To put my love on the air
(But I only communicate)
When I put my love on the air
(You don't have to consummate)
Love on the air

But no one will ever manipulate
Make me promise to do or die
No one can make me hesitate
What can I lose if they try
I was looking for love
Like the very first time
Didn't realize love never left me
Contradicted - conspired
I connived and designed
Nothing on earth could arrest me.


I put my love on the air............
