The Song Remains the Same
I had a dream, oh yeah.  Crazy dream, yeah.
Anything I wanted to know, any place I needed to go...

Hear my song.
Yeah...People don't you listen now?  Sing along.
Oh, you don't know what you're missing now.
Any little song that you know,
Everything that's small has to grow.
And slow it grows!  Push, push, yeah!

California sunlight, sweet Calcutta rain
Honolulu starbright...the song remains the same.
Here we go!

Sing out Hare Hare, dance the Hoochie Koo.
City lights are oh so bright, as we go sliding,
Sliding, sliding through.  Oh!


The Rain Song
It is the springtime of my loving, the second season I am to know.
You are the sunlight in my growing, so little warmth I felt before.
It isn't hard to feel me glowing...I watched the fire that grew so low.

It is the summer of my smiles, flee from me, Keepers of the Gloom.
Speak to me only with your eyes, it is to you I give this tune.
Ain't so hard to recognize, these things are clear to all from time to time.

Talk, talk, talk, talk...
I felt the coldness of my winter, I never thought it would ever go.
I cursed the gloom that set upon, 'pon us, 'pon us,
But I know that I love you so...but I know that I love you so.

These are the seasons of emotion, and like the winds they rise and fall.
This is the wonder of devotion, I see the torch we all must hold.
This is the mystery of the quotient, quotient.
Upon us all, upon us a little rain must fall.
Just a little rain?  Ooooh, yeah yeah yeah!


Over the Hills and Far Away
Hey lady, you got the love I need...maybe more than enough.
Oh darling, darling, darling...walk a while with me.
Ooh, you've got so much, so much, so much...

Many have I loved, and many times been bitten.
Many times I've gazed along the open road.

Many times I've lied, and many times I've listened.
Many times I've wondered how much there is to know.

Many dreams come true, and some have silver linings
I live for my dream and a pocketful of gold.

Mellow is the man who knows what he's been missing.
Many, many men can't see the open road.

Many is a word that only leaves you guessing,
Guessing 'bout a thing you really ought to know, ooh!
You really ought to know.  I really ought to know!
You know I should, you know I should, you know I should...


The Crunge
I wanna tell you bout my good friend, I ain't a-disclosing no names but,
He sure is a good friend, and...I ain't gonna tell you where he comes from, but...
If I tell you you wont come again!  Oh.
I ain't gonna tell you nothin but I do, well, but I know, yeah!
Now let me tell you bout my girl.

I open up a newspaper and what do I see?  Ahh.  See my girl, ah, looking at me.
Ooh, And when she walks, she walks.
And lemme tell ya, when she talks, she talks and
When she looks me in my eye, she's my baby, Lord I wanna make her mine.
Tell me baby what you want me to do.
You want me to love you, love some other man too?
They ain't gonna call me Mr. Pitiful, no!
I don't need no respect from nobody no!  no!
Ooh yeah!  no no!  ahh!

I ain't gonna tell you nothing I ain't gonna tell you no more, no!
She's my baby let me tell you that I love her so and
And!  She's the woman I really wanna love,
And let me tell you more, oooh!
She's my baby lemme tell ya she lives next door,
She's the one a woman the one a woman that I know.
I ain't gonna...tell you one thing that you really ought to know ooh!
She's my lover baby and I love her so and,
She's the one that really makes me whirl and twirl!
And she's the kind of lover that makes me fill the whole world and
She's the one who really makes me jump and shout, ooh!
She's the kind of girl--I know what it's all about!
Take it take it...

Excuse me, oh will ya excuse me?
I'm just trying to find the bridge.
Has anybody seen the bridge?
Please!

(All Spoken:)
Have you seen the bridge?
I ain't seen the bridge!
Where's that confounded bridge?


Dancing Days
Dancing days are here again, summer evenings grow.
I got my flower, I got my power, I got a woman who knows.

I said it's all right, you know it's all right.  I guess it's all in my heart.
You'll be my only, my one and only, is that the way it should start?

Crazy ways are evident in the way you're wearing your clothes.
Sippin' booze is precedent as the evening starts to glow.

You know it's all right, I said it's all right.  You know it's all in my heart.
You'll be my only, my one and only, is that the way it should start?

You told your mamma I'd get you home, but you didn't say that I had no car.
I saw a lion he was standing alone with a tadpole in a jar.

You know it's all right, I said it's all right.
I guess it's all in my heart, heart, heart.
You'll be my only, my one and only.  Is that the way it should start?

Said dancing days are here again, as the summer evenings grow,
You are my flower, you are my power, you are my woman who knows.

I said it's all right, you know it's all right.  I know it's all in my heart.
You'll be my only yes, my one and only yes, is that the way it should start?
I know it is yeah!

No Quarter
Close the door, put out the light.  You know they won't be home tonight.
The snow falls hard and don't you know?  The winds of Thor are blowing cold.
They're wearing steel that's bright and true, They carry news that must get through,
They choose the path where no one goes.

They hold no quarter.  They hold no quarter.

Walking side by side with death, the devil mocks their every step.
The snow drives back the foot that's slow, the dogs of doom are howling more.
They carry news that must get through, to build a dream for me and you,
They choose the path where no one goes.

They hold no quarter.  They ask no quarter.
They hold no quarter.  They ask no quarter.

The pain, the pain without quarter.  They ask no quarter.
Yeah!  Without quarter, quarter, yeah!
They need no quarter.
The dogs of doom are howling more!
I hear the dogs of doom are howling more!


The Ocean
[Spoken (Bonzo):  We've done four already, but now we're steady 
and then they went:  One, two, three, four...]

Singing in the sunshine, laughing in the rain.
Hitting on the moonshine, rocking in the grain.
Got no time to pack my bag, my foot's outside the door.
I got a date, I can't be late, for the high hopes haila ball.
                            'got a hell hound on my t(r)ail.
                            'cause it's hell I'm headed for.
            (Your choice...)

Singing to an ocean, I can hear the ocean's roar,
Play for free, play for me and play a whole lot more, more!
Singing 'bout good things and the sun that lights the day,
I used to sing to the mountains, has the ocean lost its way?
I've been there!  Oh oh yeah!

Oh, yeah!
La la la...(goes on for a while)

Sitting 'round singing songs, till the night turns into day,
Used to sing to the mountains but the mountains washed away.
Now I'm singing all my songs to the girl who won my heart,
She is only three years old and it's a real fine way to start.
Oh yeah!

It sure is fine!  Blow my mind!
It feels so good, yeah!  Yeah yeah!
Oh, so good!
