Hey clowns, come on down There's a circus waiting for you in the underground Follow the sound the juke will be blowing out Soul Man You come looking for trouble baby, that's what you'll find The girls do the go-go leave the world behind It's a nightly revolution, rock and soul's last stand Raise your hand if you understand Tell me are you with me tonight? Hey ho, start the show, don't try to stop me 'coz I gotta go Hey ho, start the show, don't ask me how I got here, 'coz I don't know Tonight Little rich girls with hungry eyes Looking for poor boys for the exercise While the heat and sweat purifies the darkest obsessions Liar's thieves, cons, deaf, dumb and blind Looking for redemption they may never find Don't be surprised if you see bartenders giving confessions Raise your hand if you understand Tell me are you with me tonight? Hey ho, start the show, don't try to stop me 'coz I gotta go Hey ho, start the show, don't ask me how I got here, 'coz I don't know Tonight

My shirt is torn and sweaty, my voice is torn and frayed My heart is burnin' fuel like a Rocket 88 My moves are hard to handle, my feet just won't keep still My balance is out of order, it's working against my will I got the rock 'n' roll pneumonia and the aching lovesick blues I got the burnin' hot soul fever and the boogie-woogie flu Doctor, doctor, doctor, I don't need no help from you I've got the Jagger disorders, the Otis infection and the Jerry Lee symptoms too Yeah I feel alright I feel just fine I've got sticky fingers, got a monkey on my back I'm running round in circles trying to get back on my track I've got a taste for pretty ladies, uh I've got an aching sweet tooth I've got no sense of direction and the devil in my shoes Doctor, doctor, doctor, I don't need no help from you I've got the Jagger disorders, the Otis infection and the Jerry Lee symptoms too Yeah I feel alright I feel just fine People say I'm crazy, mama says I'm a fool Papa thinks I'm lazy but my baby thinks I'm cool I got the rock 'n' roll pneumonia and the aching lovesick blues I got the burnin' hot soul fever and the boogie-woogie flu But doctor, doctor, doctor, I don't need no help from you I've got the Jagger disorders, the Otis infection and the Jerry Lee symptoms too Yeah I feel alright I feel just fine

A 'gull cries in the distance, dawn's softly breaking on the shore There's a girl in the mirror but you don't recognise her no more Your instinct is impeccable 'cause things ain't what they seem The ride's been nice but you've been living somebody else's dream You know it's time to run again, cause this just ain't your scene But you better save your tears don't waste them Save 'em for a rainy day A rainy day Let the cold wind blow your tears away Save 'em for a rainy day You swallowed whole the fantasy, you rode the pirate ship in cinnamon pink Pleasuring the servant girls was easier than having you think You lost your faith in your old poetry that was your biggest sin You burned through all your dignity then stole the rest from him You became intoxicated by the scent of your own skin But don't let your tears betray you Save 'em for a rainy day A rainy day Let the warm wind blow your tears away Save 'em for a rainy day Now the phone is ringing, it's three AM who is it there on the line? It's a broken little girl that was so wild and free once upon a time I still remember that last summer on the beach a thousand years ago But the things you wouldn't tell me were the things I had to know But I never let my feelings show I saved 'em for a rainy day A rainy day I let them all blow away I saved 'em for a rainy day A rainy day I let 'em all blow away The blues came home to stay I saved 'em for a rainy day

I've been loving you with open eyes, but recently I realized I've been such a fool I've been so busy running, I never saw it coming I always believed in you I tried to make you happy, but haven't got there yet I wanted you so badly, I took what I could get Baby if you please (please please me) Baby if you please (please please me) Baby if you please (please please me) 'Cause I can't please you They cut back at the factory, but that didn't crack me I thought together we could make it through You told me honey: you don't care about the money But I believe you do I thought I could make you happy, but that's not a very good bed So I'm trying to cut my losses, better take what I can get Baby if you please (please please me) Baby if you please (please please me) Baby if you please (please please me) 'Cause I can't please you The loving part was always good It was the living part that we never understood So now you can have al your secrets back, protect them like a thief And I guess there's only one thing left to ask before I leave Baby if you please (please please me) Baby if you please (please please me) Baby if you please (please please me) 'Cause I can't please you 'Cause I can't please you

Another closing time, another cigarette Feeding a bad jazz habit and it ain't satisfied yet Shake it up, break it down, New York City has its own sound Shake it up, break it down, danger watching all around Steam is rising, glimmering from the broken streetlight glass It's the boulevard where the old priests sold salvation after midnight mass Shake it up, break it down, New York City has its own sound Shake it up, break it down, pleasure waiting all around Say what? I couldn't quite hear you You looking for something? Are you talking to me? You better know what you want, and how to defend it In New York City Feel and hear the naked fear after the laughter stops Take your pleasure where you can, terrorists on every block Shake it up, break it down, New York City has its own sound It ain't over, it don't end, New York City's born again Say what? I couldn't quite hear you You looking for something? Are you talking to me? You better know what you want, and how to defend it In New York City The hunger's always palpable, the memories bittersweet There's endless possibilities, the city seeks fresh meat Did she fall or was she pushed? Somebody call CSI Just another dream denied, just another sidewalk chalk line Desperation, stick ht, the wrong word starts a fight Lust and crime in equal measure, it's the concrete jungle on a summer's night What? I couldn't quite hear you You looking for something? Are you talking to me? Say what? I couldn't quite hear you You looking for something? Are you talking to me? You better know what you want, and how to defend it In New York City

Stop the world for a minute Is that a tear I see in your eye? From the outside everybody's a stranger But guess what, we're all connected deep inside I've seen 'em all come and go And each one takes a piece of your heart But I know what your dreams are made of I'll wait patiently and play my part If I hear a cry of desperation And you can't find a way clear When there's nobody left to depend on I'll be right here, right here Lighting the Soulfire The world out there is changing Mean-spirited and insincere But if the sky falls down and the rivers dry up You know what? I'll still be standing right here You know, the predators will feed on your innocence They'll try to turn your heart to stone But I'll be your angel, I'll be your protection I'm your soul brother down to the bone When you've lost your way in the darkness Scared, confused, and on your own Well, you might feel betrayed and abandoned But you're not alone, we'll find your way home We'll follow the Soulfire And when you feel you're drowning in hopelessness Take my hand, there's a place that I know It's where they heal the broken hearted And you can call me when you're ready When you're ready When you're ready to go Look outside the world is changing And not for the better no no I know we're stronger together then we are apart And guess what, that's all that I know Come help me light the Soulfire

If you need someone to lean on, honey lean on me Yeah if you need someone to lean on, baby lean on me Whenever you're downhearted no peace of mind Whenever your love light refuses to shine If you need someone to lean on, baby lean on me And if you need someone to turn to, sugar turn to me now Yeah if you need someone to turn to, oh sugar turn to me now When the world locks you out and you can't find the key When the day turns it's back and just leaves you be If you need someone to turn to, you can turn to me It's better to die standing proud on your feet than live your life down on your knees But I tell you honey you're gonna fall if you go it alone It's better to die standing proud on your feet than live your life down on your knees So if you need someone let it be me If you need someone to reach for, baby reach for me now If you need someone to reach for, baby reach for me now Wherever you chose to put your suitcase down Wherever you roam I promise I'll be around If you need someone to reach for, baby let it be me baby let it be me

Baby Blue! Listen this one's for you I'm here to help you through, I ain't much but perhaps I'll do I know you haven't noticed but I have been around Waiting for the moment when love would let you down Baby Blue! Don't let it all get to you So you've lost a few well I've been down that road too Love's a slippery notion and we all walk the line You gotta pick yourself back up girl and give it one more try So you've got nothing to say, I got nothing to do It may not be a lot but hey this one's for you Oh my Baby Blue Baby Blue! You say you just need a clue Well you just missed your cue but hey that ain't nothing new I'm not sayin' I'm the one to fix your broken heart But I can say: throw it all away and maybe that's a start? So you've got nothing to say, I got nothing to do It may not be a lot but hey this one's for you So you've got nothing to say, I got nothing to do It may not be a lot but hey this one's for you Oh my Baby Blue

Get on your feet and follow the beat There's something going down downdowndowndown Down on Union Street You've been waiting your whole life girl Do you hear that sound? Time is right girl and it's calling you La-la-la-la-la-la - ba-ba-ba-ba-ba, la-la-la-la-la-la La-la-la-la-la-la - ba-ba-ba-ba-ba, la-la-la-la-la-la Hey!

Put another coin in the jukebox I wanna hear that song again I wanna hear the Highwaymen Now I've never been accused of being educated But I always kept my word Guess I don't fit in this world My soul is torn and frayed And I won't be back this way Never may be a long time But forever's a long time gone All my life I fought the good fight It was always just one more Now I wonder what it was all for Bartender, one last round gotta feed the jukebox I wanna hear Johnny Cash I wanna hear Cowboy Jack My soul is torn and frayed And I won't be back this way Never may be a long time But forever's a long time gone I wish I could thank all the angels They kept me working all those years And to all my outlaw friends riding limbo's highway I, long ago, ran outta tears A truck, a horse, or a motorcycle I'll disappear into the rain Nobody's gonna remember my name My soul is torn and frayed And I won't be back this way Never may be a long time But forever's a long time gone
