San Antonio Rose

Words & Music: Bob Wills)
… remember alone in my heart
Call back my love of San Antonio
Just pretend like tales fall apart
Think once again of my love, my own
A few words not known …. my heart I belong…
I don’t know… of my rose in San Antonio
Growing all this tender lala heart
Call back my love in San Antonio
It’s so sweet and tender like peddles fall apart….
Rose in San Antonio… know my rose in San Antonio
(note: Sorry… but I couldn’t make more of it)

Sand Castles
(David Hess / Herb Goldberg)

* At night
When the sky is still
When the south wind blows
And the air is warm
There’s a world that’s born
And for ev’ry child on the beach that day
Stands a castle tall and proud
And the warm wind crawls through the castle walls
And the nightfolk wake as the warm wind calls
* Repeat
Then the fiddler crab plays his violin
On the back of a dancing whale
While the mermaids sing to the shells they bring
And the dragon leads with his sweeping tail
* Repeat
For the rosy dawn
Brings the children on to a beach that’s bright and new
And the nightfolk know as the castles grow
They will play once more as the children do
* Repeat
A world that’s born
There’s a world that’s born
A world that’s born, a world …….

(Santa bring my baby back to me)

I don’t need a lot of presents
To make my Christmas bright
I just need my baby’s arms
Wound around me tight
Oh Santa hear my plea
Santa bring my baby back to me
(Santa bring my baby back to me)
The Christmas tree is ready
The candles all aglow
But with my baby far away
What good is mistletoe
Oh oh Santa, hear my plea
Santa bring my baby back to me
(Santa bring my baby back to me)
* Please make these reindeer hurry
Well the time is drawin’ near
It sure won’t seem like Christmas
Unless my baby’s here
Oh don’t you fill my sock with candy
No bright and shiny toy
You wanna make me happy and fill my heart with joy
Then Santa, hear my plea
Santa bring my baby back to me
(Santa bring my baby back to me)
* Repeat
Then Santa, hear my plea
Santa bring my baby back to me

Saved
(Leiber / Stoller)

I wanna soothe my heart, I wanna ease my mind
I wanna move my shoes and see what I can find
I wanna stand up tall and open up my eyes
I wanna reach out my hand until I touch the skies
I was a poor lost lamb in a deep dark hole
But now I’ve found that light that’s gonna save my soul
I used to drink, I used to smoke
I used to smoke, drink and dance the hoochy-koo
I used to smoke and drink, smoke and drink and dance the hoochy-koo
Oh yeh! But now I’m standin’ on this corner prayin’ for me and you
* I-I-I That’s why I’m saved I’m saved
People let me tell you ’bout a kingdom come
You know I’m saved I’m saved
Well I can preach until you’re deaf and dumb
I’m in that soul saving army beating on that big bass drum
I used to cuss, I used to fuss
I used to fuss, cuss, boogy all night long
I used to cuss and fuss, cuss and fuss,
Cuss and fuss and worry all night long
Well now I’m standing on this corner, I know right from wrong
* Repeat
I used to lie, I used to cheat
I used to lie, cheat, step on people’s feet
I used to lie and cheat, lie and cheat and step on people’s feet
Well now I’m steppin’ on to glory salvation in my beat
Because I’m saved, I’m saved
People let me tell you about a kingdom come
I am saved I’m saved
Well now I can preach until you’re deaf and dumb
I’m in that soul saving army beating on that big bass drum
I’m in that soul saving army beating on that big bass drum
Oh yeh! Because I’m saved, I’m saved
People let me tell you about a kingdom come
You know I’m saved I’m saved
Well I can preach until you’re deaf and dumb
I’m saved, I’m saved I’m saved

School Day
(Chuck Berry)

(Lyrics contributed by Andrew Lessin)

Up in the morning and out to school.
The teacher is teaching the golden rule.
American History and Practical Math
You’re studying hard and hoping to pass.
Working your fingers right down to the bone.
The guy behind you won’t leave you alone.
Ring, ring goes the bell.
They’re cooking the lunch, “gettin” ready to sell.
You’re lucky if you can find a seat.
Fortunate if you have time to eat.
Back in the classroom you open your books.
The teacher don’t know how mean she looks.
Soon as 3 o’clock rolls around.
You finally lay your burden down.
Close up your books, get out of your seat.
Down the hall and into the street.
Up to the corner and around the bend.
Right to the juke joint you go in.
* You drop the coin right into the slot.
You “gotta” hear something that’s really hot.
With the one you love you’re making romance.
All day long you’ve been wanting to dance.
You’re feeling the music from head to toe.
Round and round and round you go.
(Short instrumental interlude)
* Repeat
Hail, hail rock and roll.
Deliver me from the days of old.
Long live rock and roll.
The beat of the drums is loud and bold.
Rock, rock, rock and roll.
The feeling is there, body and soul.

Scratch My Back
(Giant / Baum / Kaye)

One good turn deserves another
Be my love, I’ll be your lover
It’s all part of nature’s laws
If you scratch my back then I’ll scratch yours.
* If you scratch my back then I’ll scratch your back
Like two peas in a pack, let’s get rid of our itch together, Hmm
Joy they say is in the giving
Come on give, make life worth living
Your welfare is my concern
Do a favour for me, I’ll do one in return
* Repeat
Scratch me now a little lower
What a feeling do it slower
That’s it, Hmm you’re gettin’ hot
Well I gotta admit, you just hit the spot
* Repeat
If you scratch my back then I’ll scratch your back

See See Rider

(arr. by Elvis Presley)

I said see, see, see rider
Oh, see what you have done
I said see, see, see rider
Oh, see what you have done
Oh girl, you made me love you
Now, now, now your lovin’ man has gone
hear what I say
Well, I’m going away, baby
And I won’t be back to fall
Well, I’m going away baby
And I won’t be back to fall
And if I find me a good girl
I won’t, I won’t be back at all
Hear what I say, I said
See see rider,
Oh see what you have done
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Seeing Is Believing
(West / Spreen)

Ev’ry time I see the sun rise
Or a mountain stand so high
Guess my seeing is believing
I don’t need to question why
When I see a mighty ocean
As it rushes to the shore
If I ever had cause to doubt Him
I don’t doubt Him any more
* Oh seein’, seein’, seein’ is believin’
And I see Him ev’rywhere
In the mountain, in the valley
Yes I know my God is there
** Every time I, I look above me
I see the stars that fill the sky
How could there be any question
Only God can reach that high, hoh
* Repeat
** Repeat
Only God can reach that high
Only God can reach that high
Only God can reach that high
Only God can reach that high

Sentimental Me
(Cassin – Morehead)

Sentimental me
Guess I’ll always be
So in love with you
Say you love me too
Sentimental me
Dreaming while I live
Living just to give
All my love to you
No one else will do
Sentimental me
* Reaching for the moon
And wishing on a star
On my honeymoon
I want to be where you are
Darling can’t you see
It was meant to be
I’m in love with you
Say you love me too
Sentimental me
* Repeat
Darling can’t you see
It was meant to be
I’m in love with you
No-one else will do
Sentimental me

Separate Ways
(West / Mainegra)

I see a change has come into our lives
It’s not the same as it used to be
And it’s not too late to realise our mistake
We’re just not right for each other
Love has slipped away left us only friends
We almost seem like strangers
All that’s left between us are the memories we shared
Of times we thought we cared for each other
* There’s nothing left to do but go our sep’rate ways
And pick up all the pieces left behind us
And maybe someday, somewhere along the way
Another love will find us
Some day when she’s older, maybe she will understand
Why her mom and dad are not together
The tears that she will cry when I have to say goodbye
Will tear at my heart forever
* Repeat
Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh oh etc.
__________________________________________________________
Shake A Hand
(Joe Morris)

Just leave it to me
Don’t ever be ashamed
Just give me a chance
I’ll take care of everything
Your troubles I’ll share
Let me know and I’ll be there
I’ll take care of you
Anyplace and anywhere
* Shake a hand, shake a hand
Shake a hand, shake a hand
Shake a hand, shake a hand
Shake a hand if you can
Be truthful to me
I’ll be truthful to you
I’m in love with you so
Till I don’t know what to do
So, let’s call it a day
I said all I have to say
Except don’t forget to pray
And shake a hand ev’ry day
Shake a hand, shake a hand
Shake a hand, shake a hand, oh Lord
Shake a hand, shake a hand
Shake a hand if you can
One more time
* Repeat
Shake a hand, shake a hand
Shake a hand, shake a hand, oh Lord
Shake a hand, shake a hand

Shake that tambourine
(Giant,Baum,Kaye)

Shake… the little tambourine
Shake a ring a ding ding a-ling
Shake, shake my little dancing queen
Shake that tambourine, that tambourine
I can hear them dancin’, in the marketplace
Swishin’ and a-swirlin’, in their silks and lace
Bracelets keep a-clinking, on their tiny feet
And with their tambourines they keep the beat
* Ah rings on their fingers, bells on their toes
They make music, wherever they go
Pound that little drum now, tap on it with your thumb
** Shake, shake the little tambourine
Shake a ring a ding ding a-ling
Shake,shake my little dancin’ queen
…that tambourine, that tambourine
I heard their talent opened palace doors
Every night they’re dancin’, on those marble floors
Kings may bow before them, but they’ll be my own
Then they’ll shake their thing for me alone
* Repeat first and second chorus
** Repeat first and second chorus
Uh hmm, uh hmm

Shake, Rattle And Roll
(Calhoun)

Well get out of that bed, wash your face and hands
Get out of that bed, wash your face and hands
Well get in that kitchen
And make some noise with the pots and pans
Well I believe to my soul you’re the devil in nylon hose
Well I believe to my soul you’re the devil in nylon hose
‘Cause the harder I work the faster my money goes
* Well I said shake, rattle and roll
I said shake rattle and roll
I said shake, rattle and roll
I said shake rattle and roll
Well you won’t do right
To save your doggone soul
Shake rattle and roll
I’m like the one-eyed cat peeping in a seafood store
I’m like the one-eyed cat peeping in a seafood store
Well I can look at you tell you ain’t no child no more
I believe you’re doin’ me wrong and now I know
I believe you’re doin’ me wrong and now I know
‘Cause the harder I work the faster my money goes
*Repeat
Shake it again!
I been over and in, way down underneath
I been over and in, way down underneath
You make me roll my eyes
And then you make me grit my teeth
*Repeat

She Thinks I Still Care
(S. Duffy / D. L. Lipscomb)

Oh just because I asked a friend about her
Just because I spoke her name somewhere
Just because I rang her number by mistake today
You know she thinks I, I still care
And just because I haunt the same old places
Where the mem’ry od her lingers ev’rywhere
Just because I’m not the happy guy I used to be
Lord, you know, she thinks I still care
Well, if she’s happy thinking I still need her
Then let that silly notion bring her cheer
Oh how could she ever be so foolish
Tell me where did she get, Lord such an idea
Oh yeah, oh Lord
Just because I asked a friend about her
And you know, just because I spoke her name somewhere
Just because, Lord I thought I saw her and went to pieces
Lord, you know, she thinks I, Lord, still care
You know, she thinks I, I still care
Lord, she thinks I still care
Oh Lord she thinks I still care

She Wears My Ring
(Boudleaux / Felice Bryant)

She wears my ring to show the world that she belongs to me
She wears my ring to show the world she’s mine eternally
With loving care I placed it on her finger
To show my love for all the world to see
* This tiny ring is a token of tender emotion
An endless pool of love that’s as deep as the ocean
She swears to wear it with eternal devotion
That’s why I sing, because she wears my ring
She swears to wear it with eternal devotion
That’s why I sing, because she wears my ring
* Repeat
That’s why I sing, because she wears my ring

Show Me Thy Ways ,O Lord

(Words & Music Hazel Shade)
Show me Thy ways, O Lord
Show me Thy ways, O Lord
Help me love when I’m hated
Spread joy unabated
Show me Thy ways, O Lord
Jesus was more than just a man from Galilee
Christ the son of God, he died for you and me
They scorched him and walked him upon in delight (?)
Still Jesus loved them, forgave and he cried
Show me Thy ways, O Lord
Show me Thy ways, O Lord
Help me love when I’m hated
Spread joy unabated
Show me Thy ways, O Lord
Show me Thy ways, O Lord
Help me love when I’m hated
Spread joy unabated
Show me Thy ways, O Lord

The future is in those little signs of the zodiac
(Michael is a Scorpio, he can’t make up his mind
Poor boy he can’t decide at all

You can’t marry your mother
Your mother’s much too tall, ha ha
Ho ho
Signs of the zodiac, signs of the zodiac
The future is in those little signs of the zodiac

Silent night, holy night.
All is calm, all is bright.
‘Round yon virgin mother and child.
Holy infant so tender and mild.

Children laughing, people passing
Meeting smile after smile
And on every street corner you’ll hear….
* Repeat
Strings of street light, even stop lights
Blink of bright red and green
As the shoppers rush home with their treasures
Hear the snow crunch, see the kids bunch
This is Santa’s big scene
And above all the bustle you’ll hear ….

Soon it will be Christmas Day

Singing Tree

(Words & music by Owens – Solberg)

You’re the one who beckoned the wind
And fanned the flame when our love began
So don’t pretend you don’t know me
Our names are carved on you, singing tree
Oh singing tree
Sing to me
Call your friend
The roving wind
Maybe he can find my love
And bring her back, singing tree
Your leaves have turned from green to blue
Sometimes I think you loved her too
But since she left and our love died
You stand petrified, singing tree
Oh sing to me
Singing tree
Call your friend
The roving wind
Maybe he can find my love
And bring her back, singing tree
Oh sing to me
Singing tree
Call your friend
The roving wind
Maybe he can find my love

Slowly but surely, I’m gonna make you mine
I’m gonna make you mine
I’m gonna make you mine

Smokey Mountain Boy

(Words & music by Rosenblatt – Milrose)

I’m just a Smokey mountain boy
Come back to the hills I love
Where the tops of pine all bend in the wind
And the deep blue sky above
The closer and closer I get to home
The more excited I am
Those were the mornings I’d roll out of bed
Start the day off with a hot corn bread
Smothered in huckleberry jam
I’m just a Smokey mountain boy
Come back to the hills I love
Where the tops of pine all bend in the wind
And the deep blue sky above
I can almost hear the hounds running through the woods
Close on the trail of the hare
How I long to be with them following the hounds
a-huntin’ again
Gettin’ me a big old grizzly bear
I’m just a Smokey mountain boy
Come back to the hills I love
Where the tops of pine all bend in the wind
And the deep blue sky above
I traveled around and met lots of girls
No matter how many I see
I left some pretty ones behind
I know back home is where I’ll find
The girl whose love is meant for me
I’m just a Smokey mountain boy
Come back to the hills I love
Where the tops of pine all bend in the wind
And the deep blue sky above

Smorgasbord

(Words & music by Tepper – Bennett)

Some like their women short, some like them tall
I’ll take them any size ’cause I love them all
I’m just wild about smorgasbord
I got a cravin’ for smorgasbord
A little kiss here, a little kiss there
That’s smorgasbord
Mmm
Some take just apple pie, some take just cake
I’ll take the dish I please, please the dish I take
I’m just wild about smorgasbord
I got a cravin’ for smorgasbord
A little kiss here, a little kiss there
That’s smorgasbord
Mmm
Some like just southern belles, they got a one track mind
I go for all the belles except the wedding kind
I’m just wild about smorgasbord
I got a cravin’ for smorgasbord
A little kiss here, a little kiss there
That’s smorgasbord
Some like their women short, some like them tall
I’ll take them any size ’cause I love them all, Mmm
Some take just apple pie, some take just cake
I’ll take the dish I please, please the dish I take

Snowbird

(words & music by Gene MacLellan)

Beneath this snowy mantle cold and clean
The unborn grass lies waiting
for its coat to turn to green
The snowbird sings a song he always sings
And speaks to me of flowers
that will bloom again in spring
When I was young my heart was young then too
Anything that it would tell me,
that’s the thing that I would do
But now I feel such emptiness within
For the thing that I want most in life
Is the thing I can’t win
Spread your tiny wings and fly away
And take the snow back with you
Where it came from on that day
The one I love forever is untrue
And if I could you know
that I would fly away with you
The breeze along the river seems to say
That she’ll only break my heart again
should I decide to stay
So little snowbird take me with you when you go
To that land of gentle breezes
where the peaceful waters flow

So Close, Yet So Far from Paradise

(Words & music by Joy Byers)

So close, yet so far from paradise
I hold, you in my arms, in paradise
Is mine, then you slip away
Like a child at play, and here am I
So close, yet so far from paradise
When you, are close to me, it’s paradise
We kiss, oh my love, paradise
Is mine, then suddenly you’re gone from me
Like a floating star, I see, and here am I
So close, yet so far from paradise
I reach out for you, but each time I do
I always find you gone
I know love is new, I’ll take care of you
In my arms is where you belong
Just, a step away, are we from paradise
Take my hand, come away, to paradise
My love, I want you close to me
I need you desperately, oh here am I
Waiting for you
Here am I
Praying for you
Here am I, so close, yet so far from paradise

So Glad You’re Mine

(words & music by Arthur Crudup)

My baby’s long and tall,
She’s like a cannonball.
Say, everytime she loves me,
Lordly, you can hear me squall.
She cried, Ooo-wee.
I believe I’ll change my mind.
She said, “I’m so glad I’m living”.
I cried, “I’m so glad you’re mine”.
My baby knows just how
To treat me right.
Gives me plenty loving
Morning, noon, and night.
She cried, Ooo-wee.
I believe I’ll change my mind.
She said, “I’m so glad I’m living”.
I cried, “I’m so glad you’re mine”.
When my baby does what she does to me,
I climb the highest mountain,
Dive in the deepest sea.
She cried, Ooo-wee.
I believe I’ll change my mind.
She said, “I’m so glad I’m living”.
I cried, “I’m so glad you’re mine”.
My baby’s lips are red
And sweet like wine,
And when she kisses me,
I get high every time.
She cried, Oo-wee.
I believe I’ll change my mind.
She said, “I’m so glad I’m living”.
I cried, “I’m so glad you’re mine”.

So High

(Traditional – arranged by Elvis Presley)

Well, He’s so high (so high you can’t get over Him)

So low (so low you can’t get under him)
Great God Almighty (you must come in at the door)
Oh well, He’s high (so high you can’t get over Him)
He’s wide (so wide you can’t get around Him)
So low (so low you can’t get under him)
The mighty lamb (you must come in at the door)
Well I went down in the valley
You know I did over there ever stay
My soul got happy in the valley
You know I stayed right there all day
Well, He’s high (so high you can’t get over Him)
And he’s wide (so wide you can’t get around Him)
I know he’s so low (so low you can’t get under him)
The mighty lamb (you must come in at the door)
Well I ain’t been to heaven but I’m, I’m told
The streets the streets are pearls
You know the mighty mighty
Mighty gates are gold
And He’s high (so high you can’t get over Him)
So wide (so wide you can’t get around Him)
He’s so low (so low you can’t get under him)

Softly And Tenderly

Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling,
Calling for you and for me.
Patient and loving Heوٹ¯ waiting and watching;
Watching for you and for me.
Chorus:
Come home, come home,
Ye who are weary come home;
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling;
Calling, “O sinner, come home!”
Repeat Chorus
Why should we linger when Jesus is pleading,
Pleading for you and for me?
Why should we wait, then, and heed not His mercies;
Mercies for you and for me?
Repeat Chorus
O for the wonderful love He has promised,
Promised for you and for me.
Though we have sinned He has mercy and pardon;
Pardon for you and for me.

Soldier Boy

(Words & music by David Jones – Theodore Williams)

Soldier boy why feel blue
Don’t you believe that she will be true
It’s written in the blue
That she was meant for only you
Soldier boy tell me why do you cry
When you return she’ll rush to your side
It’s written in the book
That she was meant for only you
So prove your love is true
She’ll be there to say “I do”
And if you go o’er sea or land
She’ll make you understand
While you’re gone oh try to believe
Her love for you is really for real
It’s written in the book
That she was meant for only you
So prove your love is true
She’ll be there to say “I do”
And if you go o’er sea or land
She’ll make you understand
While you’re gone oh try to believe
Her love for you is really for real
It’s written in the book

Solitaire

(Words & music by Neil Sedaka – Justin Cody)

There was a man a lonly man
Who lost his love thru his indifference
A heartthat cared , that went unshared
Until be died within hissilence
And *solitaireis the only game intown
And every road that takes him thakes him down
While lifegoes on around him everywhere
He’s playing solitaire
And keeping to himself begins todeal
And still the** king of heartis wellconcealed!
Another losing game comes to anend
Anddeals them out again
A little hope goes up in smoke
Just how it goes , goes without saying
There was aman a lonly man
Who would command , the hand he’s playing!
*Repete

Somebody Bigger Than You and I

(Words & music by Lange – Heath – Burke)

Who made the mountains, who made the trees
Who made the rivers flow to the sea
And who sends the rain when the earth is dry
Somebody bigger than you and I
Who made the flowers to bloom in the spring
Who made the song for the robins to sing
And who hung the moon and the stars in the sky
Somebody bigger than you and I
He lights the way when the road is long
He keeps you company
And with His love to guide you
He walks beside you
Just like He walks with me
When I am weary, filled with despair
Who gives me courage to go on from there
And who gives me faith that will never die
Somebody bigger than you and I
Somebody bigger than you and I

Something

(words & music by George Harrison)

Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover
Something in the way she moves me
I don’t want to leave her now
You know I believe and how
Somewhere in her smile she knows
All I gotta do is think of her
Something in her style that shows me
I don’t want to leave her now
You know I believe and how
You’re asking me will our love grow
I don’t know, I don’t know
You stick around and it may show
I don’t know, I don’t know
Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover
Something in the way she moves me
I don’t want to leave her now
You know I believe and how
You’re asking me will our love grow
I don’t know, I don’t know
You stick around and it may show
I don’t know, I don’t know
Something in the way she moves
All I gotta do is think of her
Something in her style that shows me
I don’t want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

Something Blue

(Words & music: Paul Evans / Al Byron)

Something old, the times gone by,
Something new, these tears I cry,
Something borrowed were those lips my lips knew
And that’s why I’m something blue.
Something old, the vows we made,
Something new, the price I paid,
Something borrowed, love was tried but not true.
Now my life is something blue.
I guess that I had better smile
Walking behind you down the aisle,
I feel I’m walking to my doom,
I’m really not the best man in this room.
Something old, the dreams we planned,
Something new, his wedding band,
Something borrowed was the heart I gave you,
You returned it torn in two.
Something old, the dreams we planned,
Something new, his wedding band,
Something borrowed was the heart I gave you,
You returned it torn in two.
And that’s why,
And that’s why I’m something blue.

Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child

Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Long way from my home
Sometimes I wish I could fly
Like a bird up in the sky
Oh, sometimes I wish I could fly
Fly like a bird up in the sky
Sometimes I wish I could fly
Like a bird up in the sky
Closer to my home
Motherless children have a hard time
Motherless children have-a such a hard time
Motherless children have such a really hard time
A long way from home
Sometimes I feel like freedom is near
Sometimes I feel like freedom is here
Sometimes I feel like freedom is so near
But we’re so far from home

Song of the Shrimp

(Words & music by Bennett – Tepper)

I saw three shrimp in the water, two were old and gray
I swam a little bit closer and .. I heard the third one say
Goodbye mama shrimp, papa shake my hand
Here come the shrimper for to take me to Louisian’
Here come the shrimper for to take me to Louisian’
He showed his mama and papa, the shrimp newspaper he read
An invitation to all the shrimp and this is what it said
Free ride, New Orleans, stay in grand hotel
Big Creole gal who help you come out of your shell
Big Creole gal who help you come out of your shell
If I should live to be ninety, I will never forget
The little shrimp and the song he sang as he jumped into the net
Goodbye mama shrimp, papa shake my hand
Here come the shrimper for to take me to Louisian’
Here come the shrimper for to take me to Louisian’
Here come the shrimper for to take me to Louisian’
Here come the shrimper for to take me to Louisian’
Here come the shrimper for to take me to Louisian’

Sound Advice

(Words & music by Baum – Giant)

Some folks tell you what to do
They think they know more than you
They insist that they’re givin’ sound advice
But as sure as you’re livin’
It ain’t sound, it ain’t nice
It just doesn’t sound like sound advice
Some folks like to be the boss
They get up on their high horse
Oh they say that you’re gettin, sound advice
There one thing I’m bettin’
It ain’t wise, it ain’t nice
You won’t like the sound of their advice
Sound advice we’re given
Just as sure as your as you’re livin’
If your smart you’ll think twice
When they start to sound off with advice
Sound advice we’re given
Just as sure as your as you’re livin’
If your smart you’ll think twice
When they start to sound off with advice
Don’t listen to their sound advice

Blue Spanish eyes
teardrops are falling from your Spanish eyes
Please please don’t cry,

Soon I’ll return,
bringing you all the love your heart can hold
Please say “Si Si”

Soon I’ll return,
bringing you all the love your heart can hold
Please say “Si Si”
say you and your Spanish eyes will wait for me
Say you and your Spanish eyes will wait for me

Speedway

(Words & music by Glazer – Schlaks)

Take a ton of bolt and steel
A whole lotta sweat, a set of wheels
On the Speedway
The flag is down, pistons pound
Plenty of engines ripping around .. on the Speedway
Go for the money and lead the pack
Push the throttle and burn the track
Curl and swirl like you doin’ a dance
Speedway’s comin’ and now’s your chance
On the Speedway, on the Speedway, on the Speedway
Stoke that pedal down to the floor
As much as you give, crowd wants more
More, more, more, more, more on the Speedway
On the Speedway
Take a spin, hit the brakes
A young little girl .. shivers and shakes
On the Speedway
Clear the way, comin’ through
Kiss from your baby just pushin’ you
On the Speedway
Go for the money and lead the pack
Push the throttle and burn the track
Curl and swirl like you doin’ a dance
Speedway’s comin’ and now’s your chance
On the Speedway, on the Speedway, on the Speedway
Stoke that pedal down to the floor
As much as you give, crowd wants more
More, more, more, more, more on the Speedway
On the Speedway
On the Speedway, on the Speedway, on the Speedway
On the Speedway, on the Speedway, on the Speedway
On the Speedway, on the Speedway

Spinout

(Words & music by Wayne – Weisman – Fuller)

When her motor’s warm, and she’s purrin’ sweet
Buddy let me warn ya’, you’re on a one-way street
She’ll crowd ya’ close, spin your wheels
Then you’re gonna know how it feels
To spinout..spinout
Better watch those curves, never let her steer
If she can shake your nerves..boy
She can strip your gears
She’ll get your heart, goin’ fast
Then she’ll let you run out of gas
So spinout…spinout
The road to love is full of, danger signs
Too many guys were lost
Who crossed those double lines
Doncha know she’s out to prove, she can really score
Never saw parts move, boy
Like that before
To flag you down, that’s her goal
Scoot before you lose control
And spinout…spinout!!

Stand by Me

(Traditional – arranged by Elvis Presley)

When the storms of life are raging
Stand by me
When the storms of life are raging
Stand by me
When the world is tossing me
Like a ship out on the sea
Thou who rulest wind and water
Stand by me
When I’m growing old and feeble
Stand by me
When I’m growing old and feeble
Stand by me
When I do the best I can
And my friends misunderstand
Thou who never lost a battle
Stand by me
Thou who never lost a battle
Stand by me

Starting Today

(words & music by Robertson)

Starting today
I’m teaching my heart
Not to ache anymore
Just ’cause we’re apart
No more will I dream
Of your sweet loving ways
Gonna learn to forget you
Starting today
And when memories haunt me
And the tears starts to flow
I’ll just think of the sorrow
You caused me to know
No more for the past
To return will I pray
Gonna live for tomorrow
Starting today
Starting today

Stay Away

Ten thousand miles even though I roam
I can hear the call of the hills of home
The canyons high and the valleys low
Echo “How can you stay away”
My dreams are there where the eagles fly
Where the mountain tops seem to touch the sky
The winding streams and the winds that blow
Ask me “How can you stay away”
Too long have I stayed apart
From this land that I love and denied my heart
Now, now I know I must go
Where the hills say “Don’t stay away”
Where the hills say “Don’t stay away”

Hoop and a holler and I’ll be there

Guaranteed to blow your mind

There won’t be nothing left behind

Listen, little lady, you’re steppin’ out of line,
What’s your hurry baby, you got a lot of time,
Well that’s not love you feel, it’s only make believe,
Watch out, you’ll break the heart you’re wearing on you sleeve.
Cheating with your kisses,
You think you know it all,
Old worry gonna get you, you’re riding for a fall
Better slow it down, I see a danger sign,
‘Cause the way you’re steppin’ around
You’re steppin’ out of line,
You’re steppin’ out of line.
You’re cheating with your kisses,
You think you know it all,
Old worry gonna get you, you’re riding for a fall
Better slow it down, I see a danger sign,

You’re steppin’ out of line,
You’re steppin’ out of line.
You’re steppin’ out of line,
Well, you’re steppin’ out of line.

Stop Where You Are

(Words & music by Grant – Baum – Kaye)

Stop where you are
Don’t move an inch
Don’t come any closer now baby
You’ll be in a pinch
Don’t start what you can’t finish
I warn you what’s in store
If it’s love you’re looking to get
You’re gonna get what you’re looking for
Stop where you are
You’d better freeze
Don’t pull the fire now baby
Don’t be a tease
Don’t start what you can’t finish
I told you once before
If it’s love you’re looking to get
You’re gonna get what you’re looking for
Don’t you know, you’re walking on dangerous ground
Listen babe when I make love
I just don’t fool around, no I don’t
I just don’t play around
Stop where you are
Just take it slow
Once I put my hands on you baby
I won’t let you go
Don’t start what you can’t finish
One kiss and I want more
If it’s love you’re looking to get
You’re gonna get what you’re looking for
Stop where you are
Don’t move an inch
Stop where you are
You’re gonna be in a pinch
Stop where you are
You’re gonna get what you’re looking for

Stop,Look and Listen

(Words & music by Joy Byers)

When I was a little bitty boy
Sittin’ on my papa’s knee
I still remember every word my papa said to me
Now boy if you ever meet
A pretty woman walking down the street
You’d better
Stop real still, look both ways
Listen or you’ll get in trouble
When you see her go struttin’ by
Giving you that evil eye
And she’s got a kind of dreamy look
Just enough to get you shook
Now boy don’t you lose your head
You pay attention what your papa said
You’d better
Stop real still, look both ways
Listen or you’ll get in trouble
All right !
She’ll drive you crazy with the way she walks
She’ll drive you crazy with the way she talks
And you’ll think you’re gonna lose your mind
‘Cause that pretty woman looks so fine
And the very first thing you’ll know
You’ll be tellin’ her you love her so
You’d better stop real still

Stranger in My Own Home Town

(Words & music by Percy Mayfield)

I’m like a stranger
Like a stranger in my own home town
I’m like a stranger
Like a stranger in my own home town
My so called friends stopped being friendly
Oh but you can’t keep a good man down
Oh no, can’t get him down
I came home with good intentions
About 5 or 6 years ago
I came home with good intentions
About 5 or 6 years ago
But my home town won’t accept me
Just don’t feel welcome here no more
My home town won’t accept me
Just don’t feel welcome here no more
I came home with good intentions
About 5 or 6 years ago, yes I did

Stranger in the Crowd

I’d been standing on the corner
Since a quarter after seven
I was down to my last cigarette
And the clock in the window
Had it quarter to eleven
I was watching all the people
Passing by me, going places
Just the loneliest guy in the town
Looking for a friendly smile
But all that I could see were faces
And then, just like the taste of milk and honey
I found the stranger I’d been looking for
The way my cup of love was overflowing
I knew the stranger in the crowd
And I would be strangers no more
Love that found us on the corner
At a quarter to eleven
I thought you were to good to be true
All my life I had believed
That angels only live in heaven
But now, we share the taste of milk and honey
Each day is sweeter than the day before
My cup of love is overflowing
because the stranger in the crowd
And I would be strangers no more
Deep inside, my cup of love was overflowing
I found the stranger I’d been looking for
THe way my cup of love was overflowing
I knew the stranger in the crowd
And I would be strangers no more

Stuck on You

(words & music by Aaron Schroeder – J. Leslie McFarland)

You can shake an apple off an apple tree
Shake-a, shake- sugar,
But you’ll never shake me
Uh-uh-uh
No-sir-ee, uh, uh

Stick because I’m
Stuck on you
Gonna run my fingers thru your long black hair
Squeeze you tighter than a grizzly bear
Uh-uh-uh,
Yes-sir-ee, uh, uh
I’m gonna stick like glue
Stick, because I’m
Stuck on you
Hide in the kitchen, hide in the hall
Ain’t gonna do you no good at all
‘Cause once I catch ya and the kissin’ starts
A team o’ wild horses couldn’t tear us apart
Try to take a tiger from his daddy’s side
That’s how love is gonna keep us tied
Uh-uh-uh
Yes-sir-ee, uh,uh
I’m gonna stick like glue
Stick, because I’m
Stuck on you

Such a Night

(Words & music by Lincoln Chase)

It was a night oo-oo what a night
It was it really was such a night
The moon was bright oh how so bright
It was it really was such a night
The night was alight with stars above
Oo-oo when she kissed me
I had to fall in love
Oh it was a kiss oo-oo what a kiss
It was it really was such a kiss
Oh how she could kiss oh what a kiss
It was it really was such a kiss
Just the thought of her lips
Sets me afire
I reminisce and I’m filled with desire
But I’d gave my heart to her in sweet surrender
How well I remember, I’ll always remember
Oh, what a night oo-oo what a night
It was it really was such a night
Came the dawn and my heart and her love
And the night was gone
But I’ll never forget the kiss
The kiss in the moonlight
Oo-oo such a kiss, such a night
It was a night oo-oo what a night
It was it really was such a night
Came the dawn and my heart and her love
And the night was gone
But I’ll never forget the kiss
The kiss in the moonlight
How well I remember, I’ll always remember
That night oo-oo what a night
It was it really was such a night
When we kissed I had to fall in love
But I’d gave my heart to her in sweet surrender
How well I remember, I’ll always remember
Oh that night oo-oo what a night
It was it really was such a night
When we kissed I had to fall in love
Well she’s gone, gone, gone
Yes she’s gone, gone, gone
Came the dawn, dawn, dawn
And my love was gone
But before that dawn
Yes before that dawn and before that dawn
Oo-oo, oo-oo, oo-oo, oo-oo, oo-oo
Such a night

Summer Kisses, Winter Tears

(Words & music by Wise – Weisman – Lloyd)

Summer kisses, Winter tears
That was what she gave to me
Never thought that I’d travel all alone
The trail of memories
Happy hours, lonely years
But I guess I can’t complain
For I still recall the Summer sun
Through all the Winter rain
The fire of love, the fire of love
Can burn from afar
And nothing can light the dark of the night
Like a falling star
Summer kisses, Winter tears
Like the stars they fade away
Leaving me to spend my lonely nights
With dreams of yesterday
The fire of love, the fire of love
Can burn from afar
And nothing can light the dark of the night
Like a falling star
Summer kisses, Winter tears
Like the stars they fade away
Leaving me to spend my lonely nights
With dreams of yesterday
Leaving me to spend my lonely nights
With dreams of yesterday
Summer kisses, Winter tears

Summertime Is Past And Gone

(Bill Monroe)

(Full lyrics contributed by Sebastian Jeansson)

(On “The Million Dollar Quartet” Elvis sings)

Summertime is past and gone
I’m on my way back home
Summertime is past and and gone
And I’m on my way back home
To see the only one I ever loved
* Now the moon is shining bright
It lights my pathway tonight
Back to the only one I ever loved
** Oh I know she waits for me
Back in old Tenneessee
She was sent to me from God above
* Repeat
(Solo)
** Repeat
* Repeat

Suppose

(Dee / Goehring)

Suppose no rose would ever grow again
Suppose no brook would ever flow again
Suppose no star should ever glow again
Suppose you didn’t love me
Suppose there were no bees or butterflies
Suppose no bird should ever cross the skies
Suppose the sun should never never rise
Suppose you didn’t love me
* It’s impossible to imagine a world without a star
But imagining no you is more impossible, by far
Suppose the Springtime never should arrive
Suppose the tall green trees should not survive
Suppose I had no wish to be alive
Suppose you didn’t love me
* Repeat
Suppose you didn’t love me

Surrender

(words & music by Doc Pomus – Mort Shuman – E. De Curtus)

When we kiss my heart’s on fire
Burning with a strange desire
And I know, each time I kiss you
That your heart’s on fire too
So, my darling, please surrender
All your love so warm and tender
Let me hold you in my arms, dear
While the moon shines bright above
All the stars will tell the story
Of our love and all its glory
Let us take this night of magic
And make it a night of love
Won’t you please surrender to me
Your lips, your arms, your heart, dear
Be mine forever
Be mine tonight

Susan When She Tried

(words & music by Don Reid)

I got over Charlotte Thompson, Goldie Johnson,
Lord they done me wrong
I took it hard with Peggy Harper
She hurt me bad, but not for long
There’s just one I remember
Makes me feel funny down inside
I’d trade ’em all for just one hour
Of Susan when she tried
No there’s never been a woman
Who could make me weak inside
And give me what I needed
Like Susan when she tried
It gets worse in the summer
When the nights are hot and long
And it’s bad in December
When they play those Christmas songs
So if you ask me and I don’t tell you
Bet your sweet bottom dollar I lied
‘Cause there’s never been one better
Than Susan when she tried

Suspicion

(Words & music: Doc Pomus / Mort Shuman)

Every time you kiss me I’m still not certain that you love me,
Every time you hold me I’m still not certain that you care
Though you keep on saying you really, really, really love me
Do you speak the same words to someone else when I’m not there.
Suspicion torments my heart,
Suspicion keeps us apart,
Suspicion why torture me.
Every time you call me and tell me we should meet tomorrow
I can’t help but think that you’re meeting someone else tonight,
Why should our romance just keep on causing me such sorrow?
Why am I so doubtful whenever you’re out of sight?
Suspicion torments my heart,
Suspicion keeps us apart,
Suspicion why torture me.
Darling, if you love me, I beg you wait a little longer,
Wait until I drive all these foolish fears out of my mind,
How I hope and pray that our love will keep on growing stronger,
Maybe I’m suspicious ‘cause true love is so hard to find.
Suspicion torments my heart,
Suspicion keeps us apart,
Suspicion why torture me.

Suspicious Minds

(words & music by Mark James)

We’re caught in a trap
I can’t walk out
Because I love you too much baby
Why can’t you see
What you’re doing to me
When you don’t believe a word I say?
We can’t go on together
With suspicious minds
And we can’t build our dreams
On suspicious minds
So, if an old friend I know
Drops by to say hello
Would I still see suspicion in your eyes?
Here we go again
Asking where I’ve been
You can’t see these tears are real
I’m crying
We can’t go on together
With suspicious minds
And we can’t build our dreams
On suspicious minds
Oh let our love survive
Or dry the tears from your eyes
Let’s don’t let a good thing die
When honey, you know
I’ve never lied to you
Mmm yeah, yeah

Sweet Angeline

Words & music by Arnold – Martin – Morrow))

Sweet Angeline I loved you much more than poets say in rhyme
Just for one short time
Sweet Angeline remember though we’ve not seen the summer through
I lived only for you
I’m only human and I realize it’s no use trying to disguise
My love for you Angeline has ended
So let’s be thankful now not sad
For the little love we’ve had
Sweet Angeline remember though we’ve not seen the summer through
I lived only for you
I’m only human and I realize it’s no use trying to disguise
My love for you Angeline has ended
So let’s be thankful now not sad
For the little love we’ve had

Sweet Caroline

(words & music by Neil Diamond)

Where it began, I can’t begin to know when
But then I know it’s growing strong
Oh, wasn’t the spring, whooo
And spring became the summer
Who’d believe you’d come along
Hands, touching hands, reaching out
Touching me, touching you
Oh, sweet Caroline
Good times never seem so good
I’ve been inclined to believe it never would
And now I, I look at the night, whooo
And it don’t seem so lonely
We fill it up with only two, oh
And when I hurt
Hurting runs off my shoulder
How can I hurt when holding you
Oh, one, touching one, reaching out
Touching me, touching you
Oh, sweet Caroline
Good times never seem so good
Oh I’ve been inclined to believe it never would
Ohhh, sweet Caroline, good times never seem so good

Sweet Sweet Spirit

There’s a sweet sweet spirit in this place
And I know that it’s the spirit of the Lord
There are sweet expressions on each face
And I know that it’s the presence of the Lord
Sweet Holy Spirit
Sweet heavenly dove
Stay right here with us
Filling us with your love
And for these blessings
We lift our hearts in praise (hearts in praise)
Without a doubt we’ll know that we have been revived
When we shall leave this place

Sweetheart You Done Me Wrong

(Bill Munroe / Lester Platt)

Well now sweetheart
You done me wrong
You have left me all alone
Maybe there will come a time sweetheart
When you will change your mind
The road is rough
And rocky too, and ……

Swing Down Sweet Chariot

(Arranged and adapted by Elvis Presley)

Why don’t you swing down sweet chariot
Stop and let me ride
Swing down chariot
Stop and let me ride
Rock me lord, rock me lord
Calm and easy
Well I’ve got a home on the other side
Why don’t you swing down sweet chariot
Stop and let me ride
Swing down chariot
Stop and let me ride
Rock me lord, rock me lord
Calm and easy
Well I’ve got a home on the other side
Well, well, well, well, well, well
Ezekial went down in the middle of a field
He saw an angel workin’ on a chariot wheel
Wasn’t so particular ’bout the chariot wheel
Just wanted to see how a chariot feel
Why don’t you swing down sweet chariot
Stop and let me ride
Swing down chariot
Stop and let me ride
Rock me lord, rock me lord
Calm and easy
Well I’ve got a home on the other side
Well, well, well Ezekial went down and he got on board
Chariot went a bumpin’ on down the road
Zeke wasn’t so particular ’bout the bumpin’ of the road
Just wanted to lay down his heavy load
Why don’t you swing down sweet chariot
Stop and let me ride
Swing down chariot
Stop and let me ride
Rock me lord, rock me lord
Calm and easy
Well I’ve got a home on the other side
Well I got a father in the promised land
Ain’t no more stoppin’ till I shake his hand
Rock me lord, rock me lord
Calm and easy
I’ve got a home on the other side
Why don’t you swing down sweet chariot
Stop and let me ride
Swing down chariot
Stop and let me ride
Rock me lord, rock me lord
Calm and easy
Well I’ve got a home on the other side
