[Bridge]
Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in

Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in

[Verse 1]
Tied to a wheel, our fingers got to feel
Bleeding through a tourniquet smile
I spin on a whim, I slide to the right
I felt you like electric light
For our love, for our fear
For our rise against the years and years and years

[Chorus]
Got a machinehead, it’s better than the rest
Green to red, machinehead
Got a machinehead, it’s better than the rest
Green to red

I walk from my machine
I walk from my machine

[Bridge]
Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in

[Verse 2]
Deaf, dumb, dirty
Starting to deserve this
Leaning on my conscience wall
Blood is like wine, unconscious all the time
If I had it all again I’d change it all[Chorus]
Got a machinehead, it’s better than the rest
Green to red, machinehead
Got a machinehead, it’s better than the rest
Green to redI walk from my machine
I walk from my machine
[Bridge]
Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in, breathe in, breathe in[Outro]
Got a machinehead, it’s better than the rest
Green to red, machinehead
Got a machinehead, it’s better than the rest
Green to red
Better than the rest, better than the rest
Machinehead
I walk from my machine
I walk from my machine

***

If you change your mind, I’m the first in line
Honey I’m still free
Take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
If you’ve got no place to go, if you’re feeling down
If you’re all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I’m still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best and it ain’t no lie
If you put me to the test, if you let me try

Take a chance on me
(That’s all I ask of you honey)
Take a chance on me

 

Listen to some music, maybe just talking, get to know you better
‘Cause you know I’ve got
So much that I wanna do, when I dream I’m alone with you
It’s magic
You want me to leave it there, afraid of a love affair
But I think you know
That I can’t let go

If you change your mind, I’m the first in line
Honey I’m still free
Take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
If you’ve got no place to go, if you’re feeling down
If you’re all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I’m still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best and it ain’t no lie
If you put me to the test, if you let me try

Take a chance on me
(Come on, give me a break will you?)
Take a chance on me

Oh you can take your time baby, I’m in no hurry, know I’m gonna get you
You don’t wanna hurt me, baby don’t worry, I ain’t gonna let you
Let me tell you now
My love is strong enough to last when things are rough
It’s magic
You say that I waste my time but I can’t get you off my mind
No I can’t let go
‘Cause I love you so

If you change your mind, I’m the first in line
Honey I’m still free
Take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
If you’ve got no place to go, if you’re feeling down
If you’re all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I’m still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best, baby can’t you see
Gotta put me to the test, take a chance on me
(Take a chance, take a chance, take a chance on me)

Ba ba ba ba baa, ba ba ba ba baa
Honey I’m still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best, baby can’t you see
Gotta put me to the test, take a chance on me
(Take a chance, take a chance, take a chance on me)

Ba ba ba ba baa, ba ba ba ba baa ba-ba
Honey I’m still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best, baby can’t you see
Gotta put me to the test, take a chance on me

LIES/LYING – for SONG LYRIC SUNDAY

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 8/6/17

***

The theme for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday is lies/lying.

Thanks, Helen, for another interesting prompt! 🙂

***

This first song, “Lying Eyes”, is by one of my favorite bands, The Eagles. I like all their songs, and this one fit right in with the challenge prompt.

The second song, by Three Dog Night, is about lying, too. It’s called, “Liar”. We saw Three Dog Night in concert a long time ago, in Oklahoma City. It was a great performance. Here’s my actual 45 record of the song.

“Lyin’ Eyes”, by the Eagles, was released in 1975, from the album, “One of These Nights”. It was written by Don Henley and Glenn Frey. It’s on the Asylum label.

***

***

City girls just seem to find out early
How to open doors with just a smile
A rich old man
And she won’t have to worry
She’ll dress up all in lace and go in style

Late at night a big old house gets lonely
I guess every form of refuge has its price
And it breaks her heart to think her love is only
Given to a man with hands as cold as ice

So she tells him she must go out for the evening
To comfort an old friend who’s feelin’ down
But he knows where she’s goin’ as she’s leavin’
She is headed for the cheatin’ side of town

You can’t hide your lyin’ eyes
And your smile is a thin disguise
I thought by now you’d realize
There ain’t no way to hide your lyin eyes

On the other side of town a boy is waiting
With fiery eyes and dreams no one could steal
She drives on through the night anticipating
‘Cause he makes her feel the way she used to feel

She rushes to his arms; they fall together
She whispers that it’s only for awhile
She swears that soon she’ll be comin’ back forever
She pulls away and leaves him with a smile

You can’t hide your lyin’ eyes
And your smile is a thin disguise
I thought by now you’d realize
There ain’t now way to hide your lyin’ eyes

And stares out at the stars up in the sky.
Another night, it’s gonna be a long one.
She draws the shade and hangs her head to cry.

She wonders how it ever got this crazy.
She thinks about a boy she knew in school.
Did she get tired or did she just get lazy?
She’s so far gone she feels just like a fool.

My oh my, you sure know how to arrange things.
You set it up so well, so carefully.
Ain’t it funny how your new life didn’t change things?
You’re still the same old girl you used to be.

You can’t hide your lyin’ eyes
And your smile is a thin disguise
I thought by now you’d realize
There ain’t no way to hide your lyin’ eyes
There ain’t no way to hide your lyin’ eyes
Honey, you can’t hide your lyin’ eyes

***
“Liar”, by Three Dog Night, was released from the album, “Naturally”, in 1971, on the Dunhill label. It was written by Russ Ballard.
***
***

I won’t ever leave while you want me to stay
Nothing you could do that would turn me away
Hanging on every word
Believing the things I heard
Being a fool
You’ve taken my life, so take my soul
That’s what you said and I believed it all
I want to be with you as long
As you want me to
I won’t move away
Ain’t that what you said?
Ain’t that what you said?
Ain’t that what you said?
Liar, liar, liar

May I see no light
May I see no day
If I ever leave while you want me to stay
You can believe in me
I won’t be leaving
I won’t let you go
Ain’t that what you said?
Ain’t that what you said?
Ain’t that what you said?
Liar, liar, liar

Today’s Song Lyric Sunday, Helen has asked us to find songs with color! This was easy, right? Wrong…there are so many songs with color in the titles and lyrics, it’s mind-boggling. Within a few minutes I’d thought of and wrote down around 30, without even looking for any! Now, I had to choose one, or two, like I do, and I liked all of them. Anyway, here’s my picks for today. Enjoy!

Blue, navy blue
I’m as blue as I can be
‘Cause my steady boy said, “Ship ahoy”
And joined the Navy

He said he wanted to settle down
And let me be his girl
But first he had to do a little travelin’ around
And see the whole wide world

That’s why I’m blue, navy blue
I’m as blue as I can be
‘Cause my steady boy said, “Ship ahoy”
And joined the Navy

I got a letter yesterday from Tokyo
And a souvenir
A walky-talky wind-up little China doll
That says, “Wish you were here”

Blue, navy blue
I’m as blue as I can be
‘Cause my steady boy said, “Ship ahoy”
And joined the Navy

He’s comin’ home to see me on a weekend pass
A forty-eight hour day-ate
That boat he’s sailin’ on just better get here fast
‘Cause I can hardly wait

Till then I’m blue, navy blue
I’m as blue as I can be
‘Cause my steady boy said, “Ship ahoy”
And joined the Navy

Blue, navy blue
I’m as blue as I can be
‘Cause my steady boy said, “Ship ahoy”
And joined the Navy

He said he wanted to settle down
And let me be his girl
But first he had to do a little travelin’ around
And see the whole wide world

That’s why I’m blue, navy blue
I’m as blue as I can be
‘Cause my steady boy said, “Ship ahoy”
And joined the Navy

I got a letter yesterday from Tokyo
And a souvenir
A walky-talky wind-up little China doll
That says, “Wish you were here”

Blue, navy blue
I’m as blue as I can be
‘Cause my steady boy said, “Ship ahoy”
And joined the Navy

He’s comin’ home to see me on a weekend pass
A forty-eight hour day-ate
That boat he’s sailin’ on just better get here fast
‘Cause I can hardly wait

Till then I’m blue, navy blue
I’m as blue as I can be
‘Cause my steady boy said, “Ship ahoy”

Drop your silver in my tambourine
Help a poor man fill his pretty dream
Give me pennies I’ll take anything
Now listen while I play
My green tambourine

Watch the jingle jangle start to chime
Reflections of the music that is mine
When you drop a coin you’ll hear it sing
Now listen while I play
My green tambourine

Drop a dime before I walk away
Any song you want I’ll gladly play
Money feeds my music machine
Now listen while I play
My green tambourine

Ooh, I’ve been wandering round
But I still come back to you

In rain or shine
You’ve stood by me girl

“Friendship”, by Cole Porter, was a highlight song, featured in the 1939 Broadway musical, “Du Barry Was a Lady”.  Music and lyrics are by Cole Porter. The musical was later made into a Technicolor film, in 1943.

This clip is from the “I Love Lucy” television show, where Lucy and Ethel are performing the song. Do you remember this episode? It seems that both ladies wore the same dress to a performance, and were very annoyed with each other, so they started ripping pieces off each other’s dresses. 🙂

Lyrics to Friendship

If you’re ever in a jam, here I am.
If you’re ever in a mess, S.O.S.
If you’re so happy, you land in jail. I’m your bail.

It’s friendship, friendship, just a perfect blendship.
When other friendships are soon forgot, ours will still be hot.
Da da da da da da dig dig dig.
If you’re ever down a well, ring my bell.
If you’re ever up a tree, just phone to me.
If you ever loose your teeth when you’re out to dine, borrow mine.
It’s friendship, friendship, just a perfect blendship.
When other friendships are soon forgeet, ours will still be great.
Loddle doddle chuck chuck chaa.
If they ever black you’re eyes, put me wise.
If they ever cook your goose, turn me loose.
And if they ever put a bullet through your brain, Ill complain.
It’s friendship, friendship, just a perfect blendship.
When other friendships are soon forgit, ours will still be it.
Ah loddle doddle hip hap hap.
If you ever loose your mind, I’ll be kind.
And if you ever loose your shirt, I’ll be hurt.
If you’re ever in a mill and get sawed in half, I won’t laugh.
It’s friendship, friendship, just a perfect blendship.
When other friendships are are up the crick, ours will still be slick.
Ah loddle doddle woof woof woof, hep hep hep, chopp chop chop, dig dig dig.
Good evening friends.

This first one I’ve liked since I first heard it. I like all of the Steve Miller Band’s songs, though, and I listen to them all the time.

I heat up, I can’t cool down
You got me spinning
‘Round and ’round
‘Round and ’round and ’round it goes
Where it stops nobody knows

Every time you call my name
I heat up like a burning flame
Burning flame full of desire
Kiss me baby, let the fire get higher

Abra abracadabra
I wanna reach out and grab ya
Abracadabra
Abracadabra

You make me hot, you make me sigh
You make me laugh, you make me cry
Keep me burning for your love
With the touch of a velvet glove

Abra abracadabra
I wanna reach out and grab ya
Abracadabra
Abracadabra

I feel the magic in your caress
I feel magic when I touch your dress
Silk and satin, leather and lace
Black panties with an angel’s face

I see magic in your eyes
I hear the magic in your sighs
Just when I think I’m gonna get away
I hear those words that you always say

Abra abracadabra
I wanna reach out and grab ya
Abracadabra
Abracadabra

Every time you call my name
I heat up like a burning flame
Burning flame full of desire
Kiss me baby, let the fire get higher

I heat up, I can’t cool down
My situation goes ’round and ’round
I heat up, I can’t cool down
My situation goes ’round and ’round
I heat up, I can’t cool down
My situation goes ’round and ’round

This song is a favorite of mine, too. It was also one of the featured songs in the movie soundtrack of “Tokyo Pop”. That movie is definitely one of my favorites. In the movie the song was sung by Carrie Hamilton, daughter of Carol Burnett. Carrie has sadly passed away now, but she was a wonderful actress.

Do you believe in magic in a young girl’s heart
How the music can free her, whenever it starts
And it’s magic, if the music is groovy
It makes you feel happy like an old-time movie
I’ll tell you about the magic, and it’ll free your soul
But it’s like trying to tell a stranger ’bout rock and roll

If you believe in magic don’t bother to choose
If it’s jug band music or rhythm and blues
Just go and listen it’ll start with a smile
It won’t wipe off your face no matter how hard you try
Your feet start tapping and you can’t seem to find
How you got there, so just blow your mind

If you believe in magic, come along with me
We’ll dance until morning ’til there’s just you and me
And maybe, if the music is right
I’ll meet you tomorrow, sort of late at night
And we’ll go dancing, baby, then you’ll see
How the magic’s in the music and the music’s in me

Yeah, do you believe in magic
Yeah, believe in the magic of a young girl’s soul
Believe in the magic of rock and roll
Believe in the magic that can set you free
Ohh, talking ’bout magic

PHILADELPHIA FREEDOM – for SONG LYRIC SUNDAY

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 7/2/17

To take part in this challenge, and see other entries, just click the above link.

It’s time for another Song Lyric Sunday. Today’s theme prompt is to find a song about freedom. This fits in with the 4th of July Holiday, but there are all kinds of freedom. We are blessed to live where freedom is a way of life, and we should never take it for granted.

Happy 4th of July – Independence Day! 🙂

***

“Philadelphia Freedom”, by Elton John, is a single, released in 1975. It was written by Elton John, and Bernie Taupin. The labels are MCA (US) and DJM (UK).

***

The song was written as a favor to Elton John’s friend, tennis star, Billie Jean King. She was part of the Philadelphia Freedoms tennis team. However…

This is a quote from the Wikipedia article about the song…and this is how I always thought of it, too.

~Some have interpreted “Philadelphia Freedom” as an American patriotic song, owing to patriotic lyrics such as “From the day I was born I waved the flag,” the history of Philadelphia as being symbolic with American ideals of freedom as Philadelphia was the site of the Constitutional Convention, houses the Liberty Bell and served as the first capitol of the United States, along with the song’s release, which coincided with the United States Bicentennial.[8]

 ***

***

I used to be a rolling stone you know
If a cause was right
I’d leave to find the answer on the road
I used to be a heart beating for someone
But the times have changed
The less I say the more my work gets done

‘Cause I live and breathe this Philadelphia freedom
From the day that I was born I’ve waved the flag
Philadelphia freedom took me knee high to a man, yeah
Gave me a piece of mama, daddy never had

Oh Philadelphia freedom, shine on me, I love you
Shine the light, through the eyes of the ones left behind
Shine the light, shine the light
Shine the light, won’t you shine the light
Philadelphia freedom, I love-ve-ve you, yes I do

If you choose to you can live your life alone
Some people choose the city (some people the city)
Some others choose the good old family home (some others choose a good old)
I like living easy without family ties (living easy)
Till the whippoorwill of freedom zapped me
Right between the eyes

‘Cause I live and breathe this Philadelphia freedom
From the day that I was born I’ve waved the flag
Philadelphia freedom took me knee high to a man
Mm mm, gave me a piece of mama, daddy never had

Oh Philadelphia freedom, shine on me, I love you
Shine the light, through the eyes of the ones left behind
Shine the light, shine the light
Shine the light, won’t you shine the light
Philadelphia freedom, I love-ve-ve you, yes I do

Oh, Philadelphia freedom, shine on me, I love you
Shine the light, through the eyes of the ones left behind
Shine the light, shine the light
Shine the light, won’t you shine the light
Philadelphia freedom, I love-ve-ve,
You know I love-ve-ve , you know I love-ve-ve you
Yes I do, Philadelphia freedom
I love-ve-ve you
Yes I do, Philadelphia freedom
You know that I love-ve-ve you
Yes I do, Philadelphia freedom
Don’t you know that I love-ve-ve you
Yes I do, Philadelphia freedom
Don’t you know that I love-ve-ve you
Yes I do, Philadelphia freedom

Today, for Song Lyric Sunday, we are asked to find a song with alcohol in the title. There are so many of these, it’s hard to pick one, but I’ve always liked this one because it has a smooth sound, and is a bit melancholy.

***

“Brandy”, by Looking Glass, was released as a single from the album, “Looking Glass”, in 1972. It is on the Epic label, and was written by Elliot Lurie.

***

There’s a port on a western bay
And it serves a hundred ships a day
Lonely sailors pass the time a way
And talk about their homes

And there’s a girl in this harbor town
And she works laying whiskey down
They say Brandy, fetch another round
She serves them whisky and wine
The sailors say…

Chorus:
Brandy, you’re a fine girl

What a good wife you would be
Yeah your eyes could steal a sailor from the sea

Brandy wears a braided chain
Made of finest silver from the north of Spain
A locket that bears the name of a man that Brandy loved
He came on a summer’s day – bearing gifts – from far away
But he made it clear he couldn’t stay
No harbor was his home
The sailor said Brandy…

– Chorus –
Brandy, you’re a fine girl

What a good wife you would be

But my life my love and my lady is the sea.

Yeah Brandy used to watch his eyes
When he told this sailor’s story
She could feel the ocean fall and rise
She saw its raging glory
But he had always told the truth
Lord he was an honest man
And Brandy does her best to understand

At night when the bars close down
Brandy walks through a silent town
And loves a man who’s not around
She still can hear him say
She hears him say…

– Chorus –
Brandy, you’re a fine girl

What a good wife you would be

But my life my love and my lady is the sea.

Brandy, you’re a fine girl

What a good wife you would be

But my life my love and my lady is the sea….

***

Today we are asked to post about a song that brings back a happy memory.

This song is a bluesy, and somewhat sad song, but I have a good memory of it.

I love all Elton John’s songs, so have good memories of most of them, as well as most other songs. I’ve posted so many on here, so it was a bit hard to find one I hadn’t talked about.

You know when you’re at the grocery store, and you hear the store’s speakers playing songs? I admit, I sing along to them as I’m going up and down the aisles. I even see the store’s workers singing along to songs,too. This being one of my favorite songs that my daughter and I like to hear, we were going along singing this song, really loud, and sort of dancing around. It was fun. 🙂

***

“I Guess Why They Call It the Blues”, by Elton John, was released as a single from the album, “Too Low for Zero”, in 1983. It was written by Elton John, Bernie Taupin, andDavey Johnstone, and is on the label Rocket and Geffen (US).

***

***

Don’t wish it away
Don’t look at it like it’s forever
Between you and me I could honestly say
That things can only get better

And while I’m away
Dust out the demons inside
And it won’t be long before you and me run
To the place in our hearts where we hide

And I guess that’s why they call it the blues
Time on my hands could be time spent with you
Laughing like children, living like lovers
Rolling like thunder under the covers
And I guess that’s why they call it the blues

Just stare into space
Picture my face in your hands
Live for each second without hesitation
And never forget I’m your man

Wait on me girl
Cry in the night if it helps
But more than ever I simply love you
More than I love life itself

And I guess that’s why they call it the blues
Time on my hands could be time spent with you
Laughing like children, living like lovers
Rolling like thunder under the covers
And I guess that’s why they call it the blues

Wait on me girl
Cry in the night if it helps
But more than ever I simply love you
More than I love life itself

And I guess that’s why they call it the blues
Time on my hands could be time spent with you
Laughing like children, living like lovers
Rolling like thunder under the covers
And I guess that’s why they call it the blues

And I guess that’s why they call it the blues
And I guess that’s why they call it the blues

Songwriters
BERNIE TAUPIN, DAVEY JOHNSTONE, ELTON JOHN
