    Downtown

    When you're alone, and life is making you lonely
    You can always go
    Downtown

    When you've got worries, all the noise and hurry
    Seems to help, I know
    Downtown

    Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city,
    Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty
    How can you lose? The lights are much brighter there...
    You can forget all your troubles; forget all your cares, and go
    Downtown -- things will be great when you're
    Downtown -- you'll find a place for sure
    Downtown -- everything's waiting for you

    Downtown .... Downtown...

    Don't hang around, and let your problems surround you,
    There are movie shows
    Downtown

    Maybe you know some little places to go to
    Where they never close
    Downtown

    Just listen to the rhythm of a gentle Bossa Nova
    [ DOWNTOWN lyrics found on http://www.completealbumlyrics.com ]
    You'll be dancing with 'em too before the night is over,
    Happy again...
    The lights are much brighter there,
    You can forget all your troubles; forget all your cares, and go
    Downtown -- where all the lights are bright
    Downtown -- waiting for you tonight
    Downtown -- you're gonna be all right now...

    Downtown...Downtown...Downtown...

    Downtown!

    Downtown!

    And you may find somebody kind to help and understand you;
    Someone who is just like you and needs a gentle hand to
    Guide them along...
    So maybe I'll see you there,
    We can forget all our troubles; forget all our cares, and go
    Downtown -- things will be great when you're
    Downtown -- don't wait a minute more
    Downtown -- everything's waiting for you...

    Downtown...Downtown
    Downtown...Downtown
    Downtown...Downtown
    Downtown...Downtown
    Downtown...Downtown (fade)
    We'll engrave your name in gold, as we did in days of old.
    Roll along lovely Axel, roll along.

    Please allow me to introduce myself

    I'm a man of wealth and taste

    I've been around for a long long year stolen many man's soul and faith

    I was around when Jesus Christ had His moment of doubt and pain

    Made damn sure that Pilate washed his hands and sealed His fate

    Pleased to meet you hope you guess my name

    But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game



    Stuck around St. Petersburg when I saw it was a time for a change

    Killed the Tzar and his ministers, Anastasia screamed in vain

    I rode a tank held a gen'rals rank when the blitzkrieg

    raged and the bodies stank

    Pleased to meet you hope you guess my name. Oh yeah

    Ah what's puzzling you is the nature of my game. Oh yeah



    I watched the glee while your kings and queens fought for

    ten decades for the Gods they made

    I shouted out "Who killed the Kennedy's ?" when after all

    it was you and me

    Let me please intruduce myself I'm a man of wealth and taste

    And I lay traps for troubadors who get killed before they reach Bombay

    Pleased to meet you hope you guess my name. Oh yeah

    But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game. Oh yeah

    Pleased to meet you hope you guess my name

    But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game



    Just as every cop is a criminal and all the sinners, Saints

    as heads is tails, just call me Lucifer 'cause I'm in need

    of some restraint

    So if you meet me, have some courtesy have some sympathy

    and some taste

    Use all your well learned politesse or I'll lay your soul to waste

    Pleased to meet you hope you guess my name

    But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game

      There's a village hidden deep in the valley
      Among the pine trees half forlorn
      And there on a sunny morning
      Little Jimmy Brown was born

      All the chapel bells were ringing
      In the little valley town
      And the songs that they were singing
      Was for baby Jimmy Brown

      And the little congregation
      Prayed for guidance from above
      Lead us not into temptation, bless this hour of meditation
      Guide him with eternal love

      There's a village hidden deep in the valley
      Beneath the mountains high above
      And there twenty years thereafter
      Jimmy was to meet his love

      All the chapel bells were ringing
      Twas a great day in his life
      'Cause the songs that they were singing
      Was for Jimmy and his wife

      And the little congregation
      Prayed for guidance from above
      Lead us not into temptation, bless oh Lord this celebration
      May their lives be filled with love

      From the village hidden deep in the valley
      One rainy morning dark and gray
      A soul which wait in the heaven
      Jimmy Brown had passed away

      Just the lonely bell was ringing
      In the little valley town
      Twas there well it was singing
      To our good old Jimmy Brown

      And the little congregation
      Prayed for guidance from above
      Lead us not into temptation, may his soul find this salvation
      Of Thy great eternal love

      We'll engrave your name in gold, as we did in days of old.
      Roll along lovely Axel, roll along.

        I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel,
        you were talking so brave and so sweet,

        giving me head on the unmade bed,

        while the limousines wait in the street.

        Those were the reasons and that was New York,

        we were running for the money and the flesh.

        And that was called love for the workers in song

        probably still is for those of them left.



        Ah but you got away, didn't you babe,

        you just turned your back on the crowd,

        you got away, I never once heard you say,

        I need you, I don't need you,

        I need you, I don't need you

        and all of that jiving around.



        I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel

        you were famous, your heart was a legend.

        You told me again you preferred handsome men

        but for me you would make an exception.

        And clenching your fist for the ones like us

        who are oppressed by the figures of beauty,

        you fixed yourself, you said, "Well never mind,

        we are ugly but we have the music."



        And then you got away, didn't you babe...



        I don't mean to suggest that I loved you the best,

        I can't keep track of each fallen robin.

        I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel,

        that's all, I don't even think of you that often.

          When your world is full of strange arrangements

          And gravity won’t pull you through

          You know you’re missing out on something

          Well that something depends on you

          All I’m saying, it takes a lot to love you

          All I’m doing, you know it’s true

          All I mean now, there’s one thing

          Yes one thing that turns this grey sky to blue



          That’s the look, that’s the look

          The look of love



          When your girl has left you out on the pavement (goodbye)

          Then your dreams fall apart at the seams

          Your reason for living’s your reason for leaving

          Don’t ask me what it means



          Who’s got the look? I don’t know the answer to that question

          Where’s the look? if I knew I would tell you

          What’s the look? look for your information

          Yes there’s one thing, the one thing that still holds true

          (what’s that? )



          That’s the look, that’s the look

          The look of love



          If you judge a book by the cover,

          Then you’d judge the look by the lover

          I hope you’ll soon recover,

          Me I go from one extreme to another



          And though my friends just might ask me

          They say "martin maybe one day you’ll find true love"

          I say "maybe, there must be a solution

          To the one thing, the one thing, we can’t find"



          That’s the look, that’s the look

          The look of love

          That’s the look, that’s the look

          The look of love



          That’s the look, that’s the look

          Sisters and brothers

          Should help each other

          Oh, oh, oh

          Heavens above

          That’s the look, that’s the look, hip hip hooray, ay

          That’s the look, that’s the look, yippee ai yippee aiay

          That’s the look, that’s the look

          Be lucky in love

          Look of love

          It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into.

          Every plan I have is the best plan in the room. Everybody get quiet and listen to it, and everybody will win

            When routine bites hard and ambitions are low

            And resentment rides high but emotions won't grow

            And we're changing our ways, taking different roads

            Then love, love will tear us apart again

            Love, love will tear us apart again



            Why is the bedroom so cold turned away on your side?

            Is my timing that flawed, our respect run so dry?

            Yet there's still this appeal that we've kept through our lives

            Love, love will tear us apart again

            Love, love will tear us apart again



            Do you cry out in your sleep, all my failings exposed?

            Get a taste in my mouth as desperation takes hold

            Is it something so good just can't function no more?

            When love, love will tear us apart again

            Love, love will tear us apart again

            Love, love will tear us apart again

            Love, love will tear us apart again

                When I first came to London I was only sixteen

                With a fiver in my pocket and my ole dancing bag

                I went down to the dilly to check out the scene

                And I soon ended up on the old main drag



                There the he-males and the she-males paraded in style

                And the old man with the money would flash you a smile

                In the dark of an alley you'd work for a five

                For a swift one off the wrist down on the old main drag



                In the cold winter nights the old town it was chill

                But there were boys in the cafes who'd give you cheap pills

                If you didn't have the money you'd cajole or you'd beg

                There was always lots of tuinol on the old main drag



                One evening as I was lying down by Leicester Square

                I was picked up by the coppers and kicked in the balls

                Between the metal doors at Vine Street I was beaten and mauled

                And they ruined my good looks for the old main drag



                In the tube station the old ones who were on the way out

                Would dribble and vomit and grovel and shout

                And the coppers would come along and push them about

                And I wished I could escape from the old main drag



                And now I'm lying here I've had too much booze

                I've been spat on and shat on and raped and abused

                I know that I am dying and I wish I could beg

                For some money to take me from the old main drag
                Yorn desh born, der ritt de gitt der gue,
                Orn desh, dee born desh, de umn bork! bork! bork!

                  I don't believe in an interventionist God
                  But I know, darling, that you do
                  But if I did I would kneel down and ask Him
                  Not to intervene when it came to you
                  Not to touch a hair on your head
                  To leave you as you are
                  And if He felt He had to direct you
                  Then direct you into my arms

                  Into my arms, O Lord
                  Into my arms, O Lord
                  Into my arms, O Lord
                  Into my arms

                  And I don't believe in the existence of angels
                  But looking at you I wonder if that's true
                  But if I did I would summon them together
                  And ask them to watch over you
                  To each burn a candle for you
                  To make bright and clear your path
                  And to walk, like Christ, in grace and love
                  And guide you into my arms

                  Into my arms, O Lord
                  Into my arms, O Lord
                  Into my arms, O Lord
                  Into my arms

                  And I believe in Love
                  And I know that you do too
                  And I believe in some kind of path
                  That we can walk down, me and you
                  So keep your candlew burning
                  And make her journey bright and pure
                  That she will keep returning
                  Always and evermore

                  Into my arms, O Lord
                  Into my arms, O Lord
                  Into my arms, O Lord
                  Into my arms

                    Sometimes I feel I've got to run away
                    I've got to get away
                    From the pain you drive into the heart of me.
                    The love we share seems to go nowhere

                    And I've lost my light for I toss and turn - I can't sleep at night.

                    Once I ran to you
                    now I'll run from you

                    This tainted love you've given -
                    I give you all a boy could give you.
                    Take my tears and that's not nearly all - oh
                    tainted love - tainted love.

                    Now I know I've got to run away
                    I've got to get away.
                    You don't really want it any more from me -
                    To make things right you need someone to hold you tight

                    And you'll think love is to pray but I'm sorry I don't pray that that
                    way

                    Once I ran to you
                    now I'll run from you
                    . . .

                    Don't touch me please - I cannot stand the way you tease.
                    I love you though you hurt me so

                    Now I'm gonna pack my things and go. Tainted love - tainted love
                    It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into.

                      Ag-a-doo-doo-doo, push pineapple, shake the tree
                      Aga-doo-doo-doo, push pineapple, grind coffee
                      To the left, to the right, jump up and down and to the knees
                      Come and dance every night, sing with a hula melody

                      I met a hula mistress somewhere in Waikiki
                      Well she was sellin' pineapple, playin' ukulele
                      And when I went to the girl, come on and teach me to sway
                      She laughed and whispered to me, yes come tonight to the bay

                      The lovely beach, in the sky the moon of Kauai
                      Around calypso sarong we'll all be singin' this song

                      Ag-a-doo-doo-doo, push pineapple, shake the tree
                      Aga-doo-doo-doo, push pineapple, grind coffee
                      To the left, to the right, jump up and down and to the knees
                      Come and dance every night, sing with a hula melody

                      Aga-doo-doo-doo, push pineapple, shake the tree
                      Aga-doo-doo-doo, push pineapple, grind coffee
                      To the left, to the right, jump up and down and to the knees
                      Come and dance every night, sing with a hula melody

                      And down on the shore they gather romance
                      She showed me much more, not only to dance...

                      Aga-doo-doo-doo, push pineapple, shake the tree
                      Aga-doo-doo-doo, push pineapple, grind coffee
                      To the left, to the right, jump up and down and to the knees
                      Come and dance every night, sing with a hula melody

                      Aga-doo-doo-doo, push pineapple, shake the tree
                      Aga-doo-doo-doo, push pineapple, grind coffee
                      To the left, to the right, jump up and down and to the knees
                      Come and dance every night, sing with a hula melody

                      The lovely beach, in the sky the moon of Kauai
                      Around calypso sarong we'll all be singin' this song

                      Ag-a-doo-doo-doo, push pineapple, shake the tree
                      Aga-doo-doo-doo, push pineapple, grind coffee
                      To the left, to the right, jump up and down and to the knees
                      Come and dance every night, sing with a hula melody

                        The summer sun is fading as the year grows old,
                        and darker days are drawing near,
                        the winter winds will be much colder,
                        now you're not here.
                        I watch the birds fly south across the autumn sky
                        and one by one they disappear
                        I wish that I was flying with them,
                        now you're not here


                        like the sun through the trees you came to love me
                        like a leaf on a breeze you blew away


                        through autumn's golden gown we used to kick our way
                        you always loved this time of year
                        loose fallen leaves lie undisturbed now
                        cos you're not here x 3


                        like the sun through the trees you came to love me
                        like a leaf on a breeze you blew away


                        a gentle rain falls softly on my weary eyes
                        as if to hide a lonely tear
                        my life will be forever autumn
                        cos you're not here x 6

                              the oustreched grasping hand
                              my image is of agony
                              my servants rape the land
                              obsequious and arrogance
                              clandestine and pain
                              two thousend years of misery
                              of torture in my name
                              hypocrisy made paramount
                              paranoia the law
                              my name is called religion
                              sadistic
                              sacred
                              whore

                              I twist the truth
                              I rule the world
                              my crown is called deceit
                              I am the emperor of lies
                              you grovel at my feet
                              I rob you and I slaughter you
                              your downfall is my gain
                              and still you play the sycophant
                              and rebel in your pain
                              and all my promises are lies
                              all my love is hate
                              I am the politician
                              and I decide your fate

                              I march before a martiant world
                              an army for the fight
                              I speak of great heroic days
                              of victory and might
                              I hold a banner drenched in blood
                              I urge you to be brave
                              I lead you to your destiny
                              I lead you to your grave
                              your bones will build my palaces
                              your eyes will stud my crown
                              for I am mars the god of war
                              and I will cut you down
                              I'm everything they say I am
                              I'm so bad baby I don't care
