Sad Eyed Joe (Paul King)
 
Let me tell you about a story, about a man named Joe
His family they was hungry, so he said I'm gonna go
Go up in the mountains, start looking for some gold
 
So he started out one morning, the wind was getting cold
The air was nearly freezing, it was ten degrees below
*
Chorus:
Sad eyed Joe, why did you go,
Your family's gonna miss you, they want you back at home
Think about the winter, think about the snow
Think about the things that you're gonna leave behind
When your looking for the gold dust that you're never gonna find
*
He wakes up every morning, after only five hours sleep
Chewing on a tasteless piece of gristly worn out meat
His coffee runout weeks ago he won't admit defeat
 
Panning on the water searching with his hands
Looking for the yellow dust but all he find is sand
Chorus
They searched fro him every day for one whole solid week
They found him lying frozen at the bottom of the creek
A bag of yellow gold dust between his icy feet
 
His collar it was turned up frozen to his jaw
Sad eyed Joe looked sadder than he ever looked before
Chorus ..................  
 
 
San Francisco Bay Blues (Jesse Fuller)
 
I g ot the blues from my baby down by San Francisco Bay
She took the ocean liner she's gone so far away
Well I didn't mean to treat her so bad
She was the best looking girl I ever had
She said goodbye, make me cry, I'm gonna lay down and die
 
Well I aint got a nickle I aint got a lousy dime
If she don't come back I think I'm gonna lose my mind
If she ever comes back to stay, there's gonna be a brand new day
Walking with my baby down by the San Francisco Bay
 
I'm sitting down and looking through my back door
Just a wondering which way to go
Woman I'm so crazy for says she don't love me no more
Think I'll take me a freight train
Because I'm feeling blue
Ride on the back to the end of the line
A thinking only of You well meanwhile I'm sitting in the city
Just about to go insane
The woman I'm so crazy 'bout, wondering if she call my name
If she ever comes back to stay, there gonna be a brand new day
A walking with my baby by the San Francisco Bay.  
 
 
Santo Antonio Santo Francisco
Testo di V. Pallavicini, P. Conte – Musica
 
Santo Antonio Santo Francisco
L’ultima notto con lei.
Santo Francisco Santo Antonio
C’era un silenzio tra noi
Con un accento che fa
“tiara-tirà”
 
Santo Antonio Santo Francisco
Quante stazioni lillià
Santo Francisco Santo Antonio
Ma il treno è fermo di già
E uno solo che fà ?
“tiara-tirà”
Her name was Jolanda - Il suo nome era Jolanda
I’ll never forget her - Non potrò mai dimenticarla
Also because her feet - Anche perchè i suoi piedi
Were so long - Erano tanto lunghi
She wore number 46 - Ella portava la misura 46
She always assaulted me - Ella sempre mi assaltave
In a different station - In una differente stazione
She was mad - Ella era matta
Just like me - Proprio come me
Santo Antonio Santo Francisco
L’ultima notto con lei.
Santo F rancisco Santo Antonio
Lei tiene i suoi, io i miei
Tanto ho l’accento che fa
“tiara-tirà”

Polished up the car soon to be on our way
Gotta get ready for the Summer holiday
Tomorrow we'll be out there lyin' in the sun
Chasing all the women havin' lots of fun
 
CHORUS
No time for worries spending all our pay

Gonna have a party every night an' day

Runnin' round the funfair find a new romance
Goin' down the disco doin' a new dance
 
CHORUS
 
Something new most every night
Maybe we'll get in a fight
Dancin' listening to the radio
Midnight parties on the beach
A new girl we'd like to meet
Two weeks on an' we won't wanna go
 
What we gonna do when we get home
Looking in the letter box picking up the phone
Goin' back to work cos we gotta pay our bills
But we don't carecos we're holidaying still
Got to do the washing, got to pay the bills

See You Again (Ray Dorset)
 
I was comin' to see you
down by the waterside
hopin' you'de still be my friend
I got to the corner
and stopped for a soda
wish I could see you again
 
Hours are driftin'
my thoughts gettin' mistin'
caught like a lion in a pen
you can still find me
at work in the library
wish I could see you again
 
I bin' a long time
out in the countryside
castin' my rod an' my line
fishing the river
be a forgiver
wish I could see you again
 
River rock the boat
throw my overcoat
over, sit by my side
said, we could do this again
 
Never mind the wind
blowin' out your hair
sit in a rockin' chair
wish I ccould see you again
 
I was comin' to meet
outside your mother's place
hopin' to see you again
I got to the corner
and stopped for a soda
hope you will still be my friend  
 
 
Shadow Of The Trees (Ray Dorset)
 
Scarlet sunrays in the afternoon
Gathering tulips in the month of June
Strolling softly thinkin' 'bout a tune
Lyin' in the shadow of the trees
 
Mountain streams trickling through the wood
Sweet aroma of the blossoms good
Schoolgirls laughing their smiles set the mood
Lyin' in the shadow of the trees
 
Dogs are barking in the distant hills
Goin' over to the whippoorwill
Birds still singin' the clouds are still
Lyin' in the shadow of the trees
 
Life sometimes seems to be behind
Out of town things aint so wild
But it's great here in the countryside
Lyin' in the shadow of the trees
 
CHORUS
There's one place where I love to be
The countryside's so good to me
There's one place where I love to be
That's lying in the shadow of the trees  
 
Shake 'Til I Break (Ray Dorset)
 
Well I've told you how I bopped until I dropped
Now I'm gonna shake
Shake until I break
 
CHORUS
I'm gonna shake until I break
I'm gonna shake until I break
A' well although my body's aching'
You know I've got to keep shakin'
I'm gonna shake, gonna shake
Gonna shake until I break
 
When I hear the sound of heavy music in my ears
It makes me shake all over
Yeah I just can't sit still
Especially when I'm making love
The music drives me on
My baby screams an' hollers
But she'll never turn it off
 
Electric beatin' rhythms sending shivers down my spine
I'm breaking out all over an' my body's sure on fire
There's screaming all around me but there's nothin' I can take
I'm wild just like a tiger
Gonna shake until I break
 
 
She Rowed (Ray Dorset)
 
Well she said goodbye, to her man,
She missed the ship even though she ran,
And she rowed, ah didn't she row.
 
Yeah she had to sail, across the sea,
So she booked a trip on an old ferry,
And she rowed, ah didn't she row.
 
Well the captain saw the girl on to the quay,
But he still sailed away,
There were no more boats for another week,
And she had no place to stay.
 
Yeah her man had gone, she din't know were,
so she stole a dinghy from a yacht somewhere,
And she rowed, ah didn't she row.
 
The sea was rough, the weather was bad,
But she kept on rowing 'till she got to France,
And she rowed, ah didn't she row.
 
Well she travelled so fast caused such a stir,
The people came from miles around,
To see the girl who stole a boat,
When she missed her ship in town  
 
 
She's Gone (Ray Dorset)
 
The rain fell on my window
the wind was at my door
I tried to light my fire
I was feelin' mighty cold
my woman gone an' left me
to look after myself
I thought I'd hit the city
I don't want no one else
 
Chorus:
 
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
 
Repeat last two lines of each vers
 
Made a cup of coffee
smoked my last cigarette
I put on my big coat
never paid no rent
trudging through the puddles
water's got my shoes
in my head's a sad song
guess I've got the blues
 
Repeat Chorus
 
Sky was gettin' greyer
day was drawin' in
got myself a paper
light was pretty dim
stood up on the bridge
I thought I'd drown myself
river look real cruel
couldn't make no sence  
 
 
 
Simple Things (Ray Dorset)

like driving real fast in my car  when I pull off the hood
feel the wind in your face  yeah baby,  it's sure feels good
 
I woke up this morning,  had someting on my mind
so I went to the doctor  there was nothing he could find
went and saw my woman  made me feel alright
 
Well, we went for a walk in the park  till the sun went down
we strolled thru the streets and we  looked at the shops in the town
we went to a club an we danced  to some wonderfull sounds

Snakebite (Ray Dorset)
 
I saw a little biker girl with long, long legs,
She gave me such a shiver like wet paint setting,
I was roaring like thunder on my cool motor bike,
Ooh baby, is there something that you like?

Chorus:
This way, that a-way, any kinda other way,
You want some loving it'll do just right,
Snakebite, snakebite, any time of day or night,
Give it to me honey, give me Snakebite.


It makes you wanna holler and it makes you wanna scream,
And at night it sure can make you satisfy a girl of seventeen,
You wanna tell your woman in the middle of the night,
Give her some of that snakebite.

Repeat Chorus:

Wild girls in their teens, dirty pictures, magazines,
Eeny meenie, skinny minnie,
Flesh shows, videos, something happens down below,
Feels right, outta sight, heavy metal Sanakebite.

Repeat Chorus:

There's something thrilling all the girls, giving them a buzz,
Drive them all crazy, man, just can't get enough,
How can violent lovers satisfy their appetite,
Give them some of your snakebite.

Repeat Chorus:

Makes you wanna holler, makes you wanna scream,
makes you wanna shout, gimme gimme gimme gimme....

Oh I’m so lonely, I’m so lonely without you
Oh I’m so lonely, I’m so lonely without you

Somebody stole my wife,  Somebody stole my wife

An' I cried every night  Somebody stole my wife

But I was wrong not right  Somebody stole my wife

My eyes are open but there's nothin' I can see
Somebody tell me somebody please
 
CHORUS            Somebody tell me etc.

Something On My Mind (Ray Dorset)
 
I was brought up on the other side of town
On iced cakes and hamburgers
Got thrown out of school when I was fifteen
Thought that I had all the answers
Got into rock music when I was just a kid
Started hanging round all nighters
French blues and black bombers kept me on the scene
Thought that nothing could hurt us
 
CHORUS
But now I've got something on my mind
I've got something on my mind
Tired of livin', scared of dying
I've got something on my mind
 
Fought with my folks because they didn't understand
Left home and found a crash pad
Took a few trips and thought that I could change the world
But the crowd I hung out with were real bad
Robbed a few drug stores, stole cash and stole the pills
Got hooked and had to find more money
Sent my woman out to hustle on the streets
I guess she did it because she loved me
 
CHORUS
 
Just another night, just another night
Got to get myself together
I can't live like this forever
Just another night, just another night
Got a gun in my hand
But I know I can't do it
Well it's just another night
 
Have you ever been alone
Thinking of someone you can't have
An' your mind seems like it's gone an' blown
You've lost everything, everything you've had
 
Oh no don't give up no don't give up
You've had enough don't give up  
 
 
Stay With Me (Ray Dorset)
 
I get excited girl whenever you're near
Can't keep away you know I need you it's clear
So love me, no don't leave me alone
Your soft warm body sends a chill down my spine
And when we touch I go right out of my mind
So love me, no don't leave me alone
 
Love me, stay with me, let's make love together
Love me, stay with me, let's make love forever
 
I wanna hold you and squeeze you real tight
Want you to love me baby all through the night
You're in my heart, you're in my dreams and my soul
I want you so much, oh the whole world must know.

Sugar In The Bowl (Ray Dorset)
 
Sugar in the bowl, sugar in the bowl, all dressed up saying "Bless My Soul",
Nobody knows what they like to feel old, down in the sugar in the bowl.

Sugar in the bowl is a mighty fine town, nothing goes up and the money goes round,
Nobody knows what they like to feel down, down in the sugar in the bowl,
Down in the sugar in the bowl.

There is a girl with a turned up nose, mighty fine freckles and her painted toes,
The boys all whistle wherever she goes down in the sugar in the bowl.

There is a man with a luminous tie, a big round face and a gleam in his eye,
Everybody laughs when he passes by, down in the sugar in the bowl.

There is a girl with a turned up nose, mighty fine freckles and her painted toes,
The boys all whistle when her knickers show, down in the sugar in the bowl.

Sugar Mama, you're so fine, Won't you let me taste your cherry wine,
Sugar Mama, you're so fine, Won't you let me taste your cherry wine.
She walks those streets at night, Painted face and painted eyes,
I dreamt about you, wet my bed, Sugar Mama, what you said.
 
Sugar Mama, you're so fine, Let me taste your cherry wine,

Sugar Mama, you're so fine, Won't you let me taste your cherry wine,
Sugar Mama, you're so fine, Won't you let me taste your cherry wine,
