Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #90 Your Way



Música do CD Driving Rain, bem bacana. Infelizmente não tem vídeo, só áudio.

Your Way
Paul McCartney

I like it
Please don't take my heart away
It's happy
Where it is so let it stay
You gave me love
You gave me what I wanted
You gave me love your way

I've seen it
Shining from the furthest stars
Like Venus
Saw it on the way to Mars
You gave me love
You gave me what I wanted
You gave me love your way

Your way is strong
You way is right
Your way is mine tonight

I like it
Please don't take my heart away
It's happy
Where it is so let it stay
You gave me love
You gave me what I wanted
You gave me love your way

Your way is strong
You way is right
Your way is mine tonight

Your way is strong
You way is right
Your way is mine tonight

You gave me love your way

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #89 Midnight Special



Gosto muito das músicas folk que o Paul toca. Midnight Special é uma delas. O vídeo é muito legal.

Midnight Special

Well you wake up in the morning.
Hear the ding dong ring,
You go a-marching to the table,
See the same damn thing;
Well, it's on a one table,
Knife, a fork and a pan,
And if you say anything about it,
You're in trouble with the man.

cho: Let the midnight special
Shine her light on me;
Let the midnight special
Shine her ever-loving light on me.

If you ever go to Houston.
You better walk right;
You better not stagger,
You better not fight;
Sheriff Benson will arrest you,
He'll carry you down,
And if the jury finds you guilty,
Penitentiary bound.

Yonder come little Rosie,
How in the world do you know,
l can tell her by her apron,
And the dress she wore.
Umbrella on her shoulder,
Piece of paper in her hand,
She goes a-marching to the captain,
Says, "I want my man."

"I don' believe that Rosie loves me"
"Well tell me why"
She ain't been to see me
Since las' July.
She brought me little coffee
She brought me little tea
Brought me damn near ever'thing
But the jailhouse key.

Yonder comes Doctor Adams
"How in the world do you know?"
Well he gave me a tablet
The day befo'
There ain't no doctor
In all the lan'
Can cure the fever
Of a convict man.

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #87 Lonely Road



Música mais recente, vídeo muito bem feito.

Lonely Road
Paul McCartney

I tried to get over you
I tried to find something new
But all I could ever do
Was fill my time
With thoughts of you

I tried to go somewhere old
To search for my pot of gold
But all I could ever hold
Inside my mind
Were thoughts of you

I hear your music
And it's driving me wild
Familiar rhythms
In a different style
I hear your music
And it's driving me wild again

Don't want to let you take me down
Don't want to get hurt second time around
Don't want to walk that lonely road again

I hear your music
And it's driving me wild
Familiar rhythms
In a different style
I hear your music
And it's driving me wild again

Don't want to let you take me down
Don't want to get hurt second time around
Don't want to walk that lonely road again

Don't want to let you take me down
Don't want to get hurt second time around
Don't want to walk that lonely road again

Ad lib to end

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #86 Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band



Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Lennon/McCartney

It was twenty years ago today,
Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play
They've been going in and out of style
But they're guaranteed to raise a smile.
So may I introduce to you
The act you've known for all these years,
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
We're Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band,
We hope you will enjoy the show,
We're Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band,
Sit back and let the evening go.
Sgt. Pepper's lonely, Sgt. Pepper's lonely,
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
It's wonderful to be here,
It's certainly a thrill.
You're such a lovely audience,
We'd like to take you home with us,
We'd love to take you home.
I don't really want to stop the show,
But I thought that you might like to know,
That the singer's going to sing a song,
And he wants you all to sing along.
So let me introduce to you
The one and only Billy Shears
And Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #85 Letting go



Outra do Wings presente no playlist da Up and Coming Tour: Letting Go. Vídeo muito bom.

Letting Go
Paul McCartney

Ah, she tastes like wine
Such a human being so divine
Oh she feels like sun
Mother nature look at what you’ve done
Oh I feel like letting go
Oh I feel like letting go.

Ah, she looks like snow
I wanna put her in a broadway show
Ah she’ll dance and dine
Like a lucifer she’ll always shine

Oh I feel like letting go
Oh I feel like letting go.

Oh I feel like letting go.

Ah, she sings it so
I want to put her on the radio
One day and there you are
Ladies and gentleman -
A brand new star.

Oh I feel like letting go
Oh I feel like letting go.

Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five
Paul McCartney

On no one left alive in 1985, will ever do
She may be right
She may be fine
She may get love but she won’t get mine ’cos I got you
Oh I oh I

Well I just can’t enough of that sweet stuff
My little lady gets behind

On my mama said the time would come
When I would find myself in love with you
I didn’t think I never dreamed
That I would be around to see it all come true
Woh I oh I
Well I just can’t get enough of that sweet stuff
My little lady gets behind

Everybody gonna dance tonight
Everybody gonna feel alright
Everybody gonna dance around tonight

[Whistling]

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #82 Martha My Dear



Martha My Dear é do Álbum Branco e dedicada à cachorra que o Paul tinha na época, uma sheepdog chamada Martha (na foto com ele, abaixo). É muito linda. Como ontem estive conversando com uma amiga sobre animais de estimação, lembrei dessa música. Também amo meus cães e gatos.

Martha My Dear
Lennon/McCartney

Martha my dear,
Though I spend my days in conversation, please
Remember me,
Martha my love
Don't forget me,
Martha my dear

Hold your head up, you silly girl
Look what you've done
When you find yourself in the thick of it,
Help yourself to a bit of what is all around you, silly girl

Take a good look around you
Take a good look and you're bound to see
That you and me were meant to be
For each other
Silly girl

Hold your hand out, you silly girl
See what you've done
When you find yourself in the thick of it,
Help yourself to bit of what is all around you, silly girl

Martha my dear, you have always been my inspiration, please
Be good to me, Martha my love
Don't forget me, Martha my dear

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #81 Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End



Fecho mais que perfeito para o show. Realmente, no final, o amor que você leva é o amor que você faz - e dá.

Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End
Lennon/McCartney

Once there was a way to get back homeward
Once there was a way to get back home
Sleep pretty darling do not cry
And I will sing a lullaby

Golden slumbers fill your eyes
Smiles awake you when you rise
Sleep pretty darling do not cry
And I will sing a lullaby

Once there was a way to get back homeward
Once there was a way to get back home
Sleep pretty darling do not cry
And I will sing a lullaby

Boy, you gotta carry that weight
Carry that weight a long time
Boy, you gotta carry that weight
Carry that weight a long time

I never give you my pillow
I only send you my invitation
And in the middle of the celebrations
I break down

Boy, you gotta carry that weight
Carry that weight a long time
Boy, you gotta carry that weight
Carry that weight a long time

Oh yeah.
Alright.
Are you gonna be in my dreams
Tonight.

Love you. Love you. Love you. Love you.
Love you. Love you. Love you. Love you.
Love you. Love you. Love you. Love you.
Love you. Love you. Love you. Love you.
Love you. Love you. Love you. Love you.
Love you. Love you. Love you. Love you.

And in the end,
The love you take
Is equal to
The love you make

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #80 Day Tripper


Momento nota 10 do show de domingo - Day Tripper. Vale para quem não foi e não viu na TV e para quem foi relembrar. É redundância dizer, mas o show foi sensacional. Talento, carisma, profissionalismo, simpatia, energia, charme, alegria, tudo reunido numa pessoa só. Que imenso prazer ver o Paul assim, ao vivo, aos 68 anos.

Day Tripper
Lennon/McCartney

Got a good reason
For taking the easy way out
Got a good reason
For taking the easy way out now

She was a day tripper
One way ticket yeah
It took me so long to find out
And I found out

She's a big teaser
She took me half the way there
She's a big teaser
She took me half the way there now

She was a day tripper
One way ticket yeah
It took me so long to find out
And I found out

Tried to please her
She only played one night stands
Tried to please her
She only played one night stands now

She was a day tripper
Sunday driver yeah
It took me so long to find out
And I found out

Day tripper
Day tripper yeah

Day tripper

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #79 Can't Buy Me Love


Para levantar a sexta e esquentar os motores para domingo (já chegou!), uma animada dos Beatles: Can't Buy Me Love.

Can't Buy Me Love
Lennon/McCartney

Can't buy me love, love
Can't buy me love

I'll buy you a diamond ring my friend if it makes you feel alright
I'll get you anything my friend if it makes you feel alright
'Cause I don't care too much for money, money can't buy me love

I'll give you all I got to give if you say you love me too
I may not have a lot to give but what I got I'll give to you
I don't care too much for money, money can't buy me love

Can't buy me love, everybody tells me so
Can't buy me love, no no no, no

Say you don't need no diamond ring and I'll be satisfied
Tell me that you want the kind of thing that money just can't buy
I don't care too much for money, money can't buy me love

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #78 I'll Follow The Sun


I'll Follow The Sun é uma música do disco Beatles For Sale, de 1964. Muito linda. E adorei achar um vídeo do Paul recente com ela, no auge do seu charme. Sensacional!

I'll Follow The Sun
Lennon/McCartney

One day you’ll look to see I’ve gone,
For tomorrow may rain so I’ll follow the sun.
Some day you’ll know I was the one,
But tomorrow may rain so I’ll follow the sun.
And now the time has come so my love I must go,
And though I lose a friend in the end you will know, oh
One day you’ll find that I have gone,
But tomorrow may rain so I’ll follow the sun.
And now the time has come so my love I must go,
And though I lose a friend in the end you will know, oh
One day you’ll find that I have gone,
For tomorrow may rain so I’ll follow the sun.

I give her all my love
That's all I do
And if you saw my love
You'd love her too
I love her

She gives me everything
And tenderly
The kiss my lover brings
She brings to me
And I love her

A love like ours
Could never die
As long as I
Have you near me

Bright are the stars that shine
Dark is the sky
I know this love of mine
Will never die
And I love her

Bright are the stars that shine
Dark is the sky
I know this love of mine
Will never die
And I love her

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #75 Something



Muito legal esse versão do Paul para a clássica Something, do Geroge Harrison. Está no playlist.

Something
George Harrison

Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover
Something in the way she woos me

I don't want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

Somewhere in her smile she knows
That I don't need no other lover
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 my love grow
I don't know, I don't know
You stick around now it may show
I don't know, I don't know

Something in the way she knows
And all I have to do is think of her
Something in the things she shows me

Don't want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

He Looks A Lot Like A Guy I Knew Way Back When

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #72 Helter Skelter


Antecipando o playlist do show de São Paulo - se se manter o que foi tocado em Porto Alegre -, uma dos Beatles do Álbum Branco: Helter Skelter. A música é muito boa, pesada (especialistas dizem que é precursora do heavy metal). Pena que acabou associada À loucura do Charles Mason. Aqui, um vídeo atual do Paul e um dos Beatles, de um ensaio no estúdio. Raridade!

Helter Skelter
Lennon/McCartney

When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide
Where I stop and I turn and I go for a ride
Till I get to the bottom and I see you again.

Do you, don't you want me to love you
I'm coming down fast but I'm miles above you
Tell me tell me tell me come on tell me the answer
You may be a lover but you ain't no dancer.

Helter skelter helter skelter
Helter skelter.

Will you, won't you want me to make you
I'm coming down fast but don't let me break you
Tell me tell me tell me the answer
You may be a lover but you ain't no dancer.

Look out helter skelter helter skelter
Helter skelter

Look out, cause here she comes.

When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide
And I stop and I turn and I go for a ride
And I get to the bottom and I see you again

Well do you, don't you want me to make you
I'm coming down fast but don't let me break you
Tell me tell me tell me the answer
You may be a lover but you ain't no dancer.

Look out helter skelter helter skelter
Helter skelter
Look out helter skelter
She's coming down fast
Yes she is
Yes she is.

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #71 Things We Said Today


Uma dos Beatles, Things We Said Today, na versão Paul Unplugged.

Things We Said Today
Lennon/McCartney

You say you will love me
If I have to go.
You'll be thinking of me,
Somehow I will know.
Someday when I'm lonely,
Wishing you weren't so far away,
Then I will remember
The things we said today.
You say you'll be mine, girl,
Until the end of time.
These days such a kind girl
Seems so hard to find.
Someday when we're dreaming,
Deep in love, not a lot to say.
Then we will tremember
The things we said today.
Me, I'm just the lucky kind.
Love to hear you say that love is luck.
And, though we may be blind,
Love is here to stay. And that's enough
To make you mine, girl,
Be the only one.
Love me all the time, girl.
We'll go on and on.
Someday when we're dreaming,
Deep in love, not a lot to say.
Then we will tremember
The things we said today.
Love me all the time, girl.
We'll go on and on.
Someday when we're dreaming,
Deep in love, not a lot to say.
Then we will tremember
The things we said today.

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #70 Beautiful Night


Só o Paul para terminar uma balada delicada com um trecho mais pesado. O mais legal do vídeo é o fim, quando ele e o Ringo tocam com uma moçadinha. Mas Beautiful Night mesmo vai ser o dia 21 de novemrbo, quando vou ver o Paul ao vivo de novo. Meu ingresso chegou!

Beautiful Night
Paul McCartney

Someone's gone out fishing
Someone's high and dry.
Someone's on a mission to the lonely Lorelei.
Some folk's got a vision of a castle in the sky
And I'm left stranded, wondering why.

You and me together
Nothing feels so good
Even if I get a medal from my local neighborhood
I won't need a castle, they've got castles in Versailles
And I'm still stranded, wondering why

Make it a beautiful night for me
It's a beautiful night for love
A wonderful sight for lovers of love to behold
Make it a beautiful night for me
It's a beautiful night for love
A wonderful sight for lovers of love to behold

Some boat's on the ocean
We're here in this room
Seems to me the perfect way to spend an afternoon
We can look for castles, pretty castles in the sky
No more wondering, wondering why

Things can go wrong, things can go right
Things can go bump, in the dead of the night
So let me be there, let me be there
Let me be there with you in the dead of the night

Make it a beautiful night for me
It's a beautiful night for love
A wonderful sight for lovers of love to behold
Make it a beautiful night for me
Such a beautiful night for love
Such a wonderful sight for lovers of love to behold

Yeah, it's a beautiful night
Yeah, it's a beautiful night

Yeah, beautiful night, beautiful night
Yeah, it's such a beautiful night, beautiful, beautiful night

Beautiful night, beautiful night, beautiful night
Beautiful night, beautiful night, beautiful night
Beautiful night, beautiful night, beautiful night
Beautiful night, beautiful night, beautiful night
Beautiful night, beautiful night, beautiful night
Beautiful night, beautiful night, beautiful night
Beautiful night, beautiful night, beautiful night
Beautiful night, beautiful night, beautiful night

Uma música do Paul Mccartney por dia - #69 Your Loving Flame


Uma balada maravilhosa, tanto na letra quanto na melodia, do disco Driving Rain, de 2001: Your Loving Flame. Como só O Paul sabe fazer, tocar e cantar.

Your Loving Flame
Paul McCartney

How can I hope to reach your love
Help me to discover
What it is you're thinking of

'Cos when we kiss, nothing feels the same
I could spend eternity
Inside your loving flame

What am I to do
If I don't have you
I'll be feeling blue
Just sitting here without you
You could be the one
To chase my blues away, away

So tell me how, how to reach your love
Help me to discover
What it is you're thinking of

'Cos when we kiss, nothing feels the same
I could spend eternity
Inside your loving flame

What am I to do
If I don't have you
I'll be feeling blue
Just sitting here without you
You could be the one
To chase my blues away, away

'Cos when we kiss, nothing feels the same
I could spend eternity
Inside your loving flame

So tell me how, how to reach your love
Help me to discover
What it is you're thinking of

How can I hope to reach your love
Here forever in your loving flame

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #68 Till There Was You


Uma balada delicada e linda, em duas versões: mais atual, só o Paul, e embaixo, com os Beatles. Essa podia entrar na lista em SP.

Till There Was You
Meredith Wilson

There were bells on a hill
But I never heard them ringing
No I never heard them at all
'Til there was you
There were birds in the sky
But I never saw them winging
No I never saw them at all
'Til there was you
Then there was music and wonderful roses
They tell me in sweet fragrant meadows of dawn and you
There was love all around
But I never heard it singing
No I never heard it at all
'Til there was you
Then there was music and wonderful roses
They tell me in sweet fragrant meadows of dawn and you
There was love all around
But I never heard it singing
No I never heard it at all
'Til there was you
'Til there was you

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #67 The Man


Das músicas que o Paul gravou com o Michael Jackson, The Man é a que mais gosto. Não tem vídeo, só áudio.

The Man
Paul McCartney

There's A Man
Who Plays The Game Of Life So Well
There's Such A Man
His Thoughts You Can Never Tell
And It's Just The Way He Thought It Would Be
'Cause The Day Has Come For Him To Be Free
Then He Laughs, He Kicks And Rolls Up His Sleeves
I'm Alive And I'm Here Forever
This Is The Man

There's A Man
Everybody Thought They Knew
There's Such A Man
He's Not Like Me And You
And It's Just The Way She Thought It Would Be
As He Says, Something Has Happened To Me
Then He Laughs, He Kicks And Rolls Up His Sleeves
I'm Alive And I'm Here Forever
This Is The Man

And It's Just The Way He Thought It Would Be
'Cause The Day Has Come For Him To Be Free
Then He Laughs, He Kicks And Rolls Up His Sleeves
I'm Alive And I'm Here Forever
This Is The Man

Did You Know - This Man Can Do Anything?
There's Such A Man
I Wish That We Could Bring
And It's Just The Way He Thought It Would Be
'Cause The Day Has Come For Him To Be Free
Then He Laughs, He Kicks And Rolls Up His Sleeves
I'm Alive And I'm Here Forever
This Is The Man

There's A Man
Everybody Thought They Knew
There's Such A Man
He's Not Like Me And You
And It's Just The Way She Thought It Would Be
As He Says, Something Has Happened To Me
Then He Laughs, He Kicks And Rolls Up His Sleeves
I'm Alive And I'm Here Forever
This Is The Man

This Is The Man
This Is The Man
This Is The Man

Uma música do Paul Mccartney por dia - #66 Get Back


Em Get Back, no teto do prédio da Apple, em Londres, Paul na minha versão preferida: cabeludo e barbudo.

Get Back
Lennon/McCartney

Jojo was a man who thought he was a loner
But he knew it wouldn't last.
Jojo left his home in Tucson, Arizona
For some California grass.
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged.
Get back Jojo. Go home
Get back, get back.
Back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back.
Back to where you once belonged.
Get back Jo.

Sweet Loretta Martin thought she was a woman
But she was another man
All the girls around her say she's got it coming
But she gets it while she can
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged.
Get back Loretta. Go home
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged.
Get back Loretta
Your mother's waiting for you
Wearing her high-heel shoes
And her low-neck sweater
Get on home Loretta
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged.

Uma música do Paul Mccartney por dia - #65 Back in the USSR


Uma clássica dos Beatles para dar uma animadinha - Back in The USSR. Será que vai tocar essa aqui em SP?

Back In The U.S.S.R.
Lennon/McCartney

Flew in from Miami Beach BOAC
Didn't get to bed last night
On the way the paper bag was on my knee
Man I had a dreadful flight
I'm back in the U.S.S.R.
You don't know how lucky you are boy
Back in the U.S.S.R.

Been away so long I hardly knew the place
Gee it's good to be back home
Leave it till tomorrow to unpack my case
Honey disconnect the phone
I'm back in the U.S.S.R.
You don't know how lucky you are boy
Back in the U.S.S.R.

Well the Ukraine girls really knock me out
They leave the West behind
And Moscow girls make me sing and shout
That Georgia's always on my mind.

I'm back in the U.S.S.R.
You don't know how lucky you are boys
Back in the U.S.S.R.

Show me round your snow peaked mountains way down south
Take me to your daddy's farm
Let me hear your balalaika's ringing out
Come and keep your comrade warm.
I'm back in the U.S.S.R.
You don't know how lucky you are boys
Back in the U.S.S.R.

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #64 For No One


Gosto das músicas que são quase crônicas, contando histórias. For No One é uma delas. E esse vídeo é bem lega, por mostrar o Paul em estúdio, cantando só com o violão. Aliás, só nessas horas gosto do inglês - a língua fica tão melodiosa nas músicas dos Beatles...

For No One
Lennnon/McCartney

Your day breaks,
Your mind aches,
You find that all her words of kindness linger on
When she no longer needs you
She wakes up,
She makes up,
She takes her time and doesn't feel she has to hurry
She no longer needs you
And in her eyes you see nothing,
No sign of love behind the tears cried for no one,
A love that should have lasted years
You want her,
You need her,
And yet you don't believe her when she says her love is dead
You think she needs you
And in her eyes you see nothing
No sign of love behind the tears cried for no one,
A love that should have lasted years
You stay home,
She goes out,
She says that long ago she knew someone, but no ne's gone
She doesn't need him
Your day breaks,
Your mind aches,
There will be times when all the things you said will fill your head
You won't forget her
And in her eyes you see nothing
No sign of love behind the tears cried for no one,
A love that should have lasted years

Uma música do Paul Mccartney por dia - #63 Ain't No Sunshine


Em Ain't No Sunshine, no especial Unplugged, o Paul não canta, só toca bateria. Mas o vídeo vale pela música, muito bacana (esteve recentemente na trilha do filme Notting Hill), e pela mostra do multitalento que ele tem.

Ain't No Sunshine
Bill Withers

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
It's not warm when she's away
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
and she's always gone too long
Anytime she goes away

Wonder this time where she's gone
Wonder if she's gonna stay
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
and this house just ain't no home
anytime she goes away

And I know, I know...

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
Only darkness everyday
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
and this house just ain't no home
anytime she goes away

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #62 Here, There and Everywhere


Outro dia vi numa revista famosas respondendo à pergunta: "qual música você gostaria que tivesse sido escrita para você?" Eu gostaria que tivesse sido Here, There and Everywhere. Uma das mais lindas canções de amor dos Beatles.

Here, There And Everywhere
Lennon/McCartney

To lead a better life, I need a love to be
Here,
Making each day of the year
Changing my life with a wave of her hand
Nobody can deny that there's something there
I want her everywhere
And if she's beside me I know I need never care
But to love her is to meet her everywhere,
Knowing that love is to share,
Each one believing that love never dies
Watching her eyes and hoping I'm always there
I will be here, there and everywhere
Here, there and everywhere

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #61 San Francisco Bay Blues


Para encerrar a semana, uma música que reúne três coisas que adoro: o Paul, a cidade de San Francisco e blues. E um adicional: composição do Eric Clapton. Excelente combinação para uma sexta.

San Francisco Bay Blues
Eric Clapton

I got the blues from my baby left me by the San Francisco Bay,
The ocean liner's gone so far away.
Didn't mean to treat her so bad,
She was the best girl I ever have had,
She said goodbye, I can take a cry, I want to lay down and die.

I ain't got a nickel and I ain't got a lousy dime.
She don't come back, think I'm going to lose my mind.
If she ever gets back to stay, it's going to be another brand new day,
Walking with my baby down by the San Francisco Bay.

Sitting down looking from my back door,
Wondering which way to go,
The woman I'm so crazy about, she don't love me no more.
Think I'll catch me a freight train, 'cause I'm feeling blue,
And ride all the way to the end of the line, thinking only of you.

Meanwhile, in another city,
Just about to go insane,
Thought I heard my baby, Lord, the way she used to call my name.
If I ever get her back to stay, it's going to be another brand new day,
Walking with my baby down by the San Francisco Bay,
Walking with my baby down by the San Francisco Bay,
Walking with my baby down by the San Francisco Bay.

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #60 All My Loving


All My Loving é uma das minhas favoritas. Por isso, tem dois vídeos: um atual e outro do tempo dos Beatles. Demais!

All My Loving
Lennon/McCartney

Close your eyes and I'll kiss you
Tomorrow I'll miss you
Remember I'll always be true
And then while I'm away
I'll write home every day
And I'll send all my loving to you

I'll pretend that I'm kissing
The lips I am missing
And hope that my dreams will come true
And then while I'm away
I'll write home every day
And I'll send all my loving to you

All my loving I will send to you
All my loving, darling I'll be true

Close your eyes and I'll kiss you
Tomorrow I'll miss you
Remember I'll always be true
And then while I'm away
I'll write home every day
And I'll send all my loving to you

All my loving I will send to you
All my loving, darling I'll be true
All my loving, all my loving ooh
All my loving I will send to you

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #59 Drive My Car


Drive my Car me faz lembrar o show do Paul aqui em São Paulo, no Pacaembu. Momento inesqquecível! O vídeo 1 está melhor, mas o 2 é da turnê que passou pelo Brasil em 1993.

Drive My Car
Lennon/McCartney

Asked a girl what she wanted to be
She said baby, "Can't you see
I wanna be famous, a star on the screen
But you can do something in between"

Baby you can drive my car
Yes I'm gonna be a star
Baby you can drive my car
And maybe I love you

I told a girl that my prospects were good
And she said baby, "It's understood
Working for peanuts is all very fine
But I can show you a better time"

Baby you can drive my car
Yes I'm gonna be a star
Baby you can drive my car
And maybe I love you
Beep beep'm beep beep yeah

Baby you can drive my car
Yes I'm gonna be a star
Baby you can drive my car
And maybe I love you

I told that girl I can start right away
And she said, "Listen baby I got something to say
I got no car and it's breaking my heart
But I've found a driver and that's a start"

Baby you can drive my car
Yes I'm gonna be a star
Baby you can drive my car
And maybe I love you
Beep beep'm beep beep yeah
Beep beep'm beep beep yeah
Beep beep'm beep beep yeah
Beep beep'm beep beep yeah

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #58 Dear Boy


Dear Boy é uma música do período Wings, de 1971, do disco Ram. Bem a cara dessa época. Melodias e vocais muito legais.

Dear Boy
Paul McCartney

I guess you never knew,
Dear boy, what you had found,
I guess you never knew,
Dear boy, that she was just the cutest thing around.

I guess you never knew what you had found,
Dear boy.

I stepped in, my heart was down and out,
But her love came through and brought me 'round,
got me up and about.

I guess you never saw,
Dear boy, that love was there,
And maybe when you look too hard,
Dear boy, you never do become aware.

I guess you never did become aware,
Dear Boy.
When I stepped in, my heart was down and out,
But her love came through and brought me 'round,
got me up and about.

I hope you never know, dear boy,
how much you missed,
And even when you fall in love,
Dear boy, it won't be half as good as this
I hope you never know how much you missed, dear boy.

I stepped in, my heart was down and out,
But her love came through and brought me 'round,
got me up and about.
Dear boy, how much you missed,
Dear boy.

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #57 Penny Lane


Uma das minha favoritas dos Beatles. Tomara que o Paul toque essa no show de novembro. Nos vídeos, versão atual e original dos Beatles.

Penny Lane
Lennon/McCartney

In Penny Lane there is a barber showing photographs
Of every head he's had the pleasure to know
And all the people that come and go
Stop and say hello

On the corner is a banker with a motorcar
The little children laugh at him behind his back
And the banker never wears a mack
In the pouring rain, very strange

Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
There beneath the blue suburban skies
I sit, and meanwhile back

In Penny Lane there is a fireman with an hourglass
And in his pocket is a portrait of the queen
He likes to keep his fire engine clean
It's a clean machine

Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
A four of fish and finger pies
In summer, meanwhile back

Behind the shelter in the middle of a roundabout
The pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray
And though she feels as if she's in a play
She is anyway

In Penny Lane the barber shaves another customer
We see the banker sitting waiting for a trim
And then the fireman rushes in
From the pouring rain, very strange

Penny lane is in my ears and in my eyes
There beneath the blue suburban skies
I sit, and meanwhile back
Penny lane is in my ears and in my eyes
There beneath the blue suburban skies
Penny Lane

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #56 I Saw Her Standing There


Para ir esquentando os motores e me preparando para o dia 21/11, I Saw Her Standing There. No vídeo, ao vivo. Master!

I Saw Her Standing There
Lennon/McCartney

Well, she was just 17,
You know what I mean,
And the way she looked was way beyond compare.
So how could I dance with another (ooh)
And I saw her standin' there.

Well she looked at me, and I, I could see
That before too long I'd fall in love with her.
She wouldn't dance with another (whooh)
And I saw her standin' there.

Well, my heart went "boom,"
When I crossed that room,
And I held her hand in mine...

Whoah, we danced through the night,
And we held each other tight,
And before too long I fell in love with her.
Now I'll never dance with another (whooh)
Since I saw her standing there

Well, my heart went "boom,"
When I crossed that room,
And I held her hand in mine...

Whoah, we danced through the night,
And we held each other tight,
And before too long I fell in love with her.
Now I'll never dance with another (whooh)
Since I saw her standing there

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #55 Off The Ground


Off The Ground, para a gente lembrar que é bom tirar os pés do chão de vez em quando e sair voando livre por aí.

Off The Ground
Paul McCartney

There must have been a lot of heartache
For you to sink so low.
You must have had a ton of pressure.
Only answer if the answer´s no.

I need loving, you need loving too.
Doesn´t take a lot to get off the ground.

There must have been a lot of magic
When the world was born.
Let me be the one you wish for,
One you call for, when you´re all alone.

I need loving, you need loving too.
Wouldn´t take a lot to get off the ground.

Off the ground, off the ground.
Fly around, fly around.
Hear the sound, hear the sound.
Off the ground, off the ground.

Though it takes a lot of power
To make a big tree grow.
It doesn´t need a pot of knowledge,
For a seed knows what a seed must know.

You need loving, I need loving too.
Doesn´t take a lot to get off the ground.

Off the ground, off the ground.
Fly around, fly around.
Hear the sound, hear the sound.
Off the ground, off the ground.

Hear the sound, hear the sound.
Off the ground, off the ground.
Yeah yeah, off the ground.

Uma música do Paul Mccartney por dia - #54 Eleanor Rigby


Clássica dos Beatles, preferida da minha amiga Marly, para ir aquecendo os motores para o show de novembro.

Eleanor Rigby
Paul McCartney

Ah, look at all the lonely people
Ah, look at all the lonely people
Eleanor Rigby picks up the rice in the church where a wedding was been,
Lives in a dream.
Waits at the window, wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door,
Who is it for ?
All the lonely people, where do they all come from ?
All the lonely people, where do they all belong ?
Father McKenzie, writing the words to a sermon that no one will near,
No one comes near.
Look at him working, darning his socks in the night when there's nobody there
What does he care ?
All the lonely people, where do they all come from ?
All the lonely people, where do they all belong ?
Ah, look at all the lonely people
Ah, look at all the lonely people
Eleanor Rigby died in church and was buried along with her name;
Nobody came.
Father McKenzie, wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave;
No one was saved.
All the lonely people, where do they all come from ?
(ah, look at all the lonely people)
All the lonely people, where do they all belong ?
(ah, look at all the lonely people)

Uma música do Paul Mccartney por dia - #53 Don't Get Around Much Anymore


Don't Get Around Much Anymore é um clássico do jazz, do Duke Ellington e do Bob Russell. Mas entra aqui porque adorei a versão rocker com o Paul. Vale para fechar a semana e começar o feriadão animada, depois de uma semana puxada.

Don't Get Around Much Anymore
Duke Ellington / Bob Russell

Missed the Saturday dance
Heard they crowded the floor
Couldn't bear it without you
Don't Get Around Much Anymore.

Thought I'd visit the club
Got as far as the door
They'd have asked me about you
Don't Get Around Much Anymore.

Oh, darling I guess
My mind's more at ease
But nevertheless
Why bring my memo, why bring my memo,
Why bring my memories.

Been invited on dates
Might have gone but what for
It's awfully different without you
Don't Get Around Much Anymore.

Thought I'd visit the club
Got as far as the door
They'd have asked me about you
Don't Get Around Much Anymore.

Oh, darling I guess
My mind's more at ease
But nevertheless
Why bring my memo, why bring my memo,
Why bring my memories.

Oooooh.

As we head across the sea,
And at last we will be free.

You’re a bluebird, you’re a bluebird,
You’re a bluebird, you’re a bluebird
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
You’re a bluebird, you’re a bluebird
You’re a bluebird
Yeah, yeah ,yeah.

Bluebird
Ah ha,
Bluebird
Ah ha,
Bluebird.

All alone on a desert island
We’re living in the trees,
And we’re flying in the breeze.

We’re the bluebirds, we’re the bluebirds
We’re the bluebirds, we’re the bluebirds
Yeah, yeah, yeah.

We’re the bluebirds, we’re the bluebirds
We’re the bluebirds
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Bluebird
Ah ha,
Bluebird
Ah ha,
Bluebird.

Uma música do Paul Mccartney por dia - #51 Yesterday


Hoje é uma clássica do Paul e dos Beatles, Yesterday, que dispensa comentários.

Yesterday
Lennon/Paul McCartney

Yesterday
All my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they're here to stay
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Suddenly
I'm not half the man I used to be
There's a shadow hanging over me
Oh, yesterday came suddenly

Why she had to go I don't know
She wouldn't say
I said something wrong now I long
For yesterday

Yesterday
Love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Why she had to go I don't know
She wouldn't say
I said something wrong now I long
For yesterday

Yesterday
Love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Uma música do Paul Mccartney por dia - #50 Listen What The Man Said


Uma música da época do Wings ainda, muito legal. Para comemorar que o Paul estará de volta ao Brasil em novembro - eu estarei lá, com certeza! Vai ser um maravilhoso presente de aniversário para mim.

Listen What The Man Said
Paul McCartney

Any Time, Any Day
You Can Hear The People Say,

Uma música do Paul Mccartney por dia - #49 Two of Us


Uma dos Beatles, para variar um pouco. Two of Us é de uma das fases de que mais gosto. Vídeo mais recente do Paul e o original dos Beatles.

Two of Us
Lennon/McCartney

Two of us riding nowhere
Spending someone's
Hard earned pay
You and me Sunday driving
Not arriving
On our way back home
We're on our way home
We're on our way home
We're going home

Two of us sending postcards
Writing letters
On my wall
You and me burning matches
Lifting latches
On our way back home
We're on our way home
We're on our way home
We're going home

You and I have memories
Longer than the road that stretches out ahead

Two of us wearing raincoats
Standing so low
In the sun
You and me chasing paper
Getting nowhere
On our way back home
We're on our way home
We're on our way home
We're going home

You and I have memories
Longer than the road that stretches out ahead

Two of us wearing raincoats
Standing so low
In the sun
You and me chasing paper
Getting nowhere
On our way back home
We're on our way home
We're on our way home
We're going home

Uma música do Paul Mccartney por dia - #48 So Bad


Mais do que da música So Bad, gosto do vídeo. É muito legal ver o Paul e o Ringo juntos, sempre. E um pouquinho dos bastidores, pra gente lembrar que eles são gente de verdade.

So Bad
Paul McCartney

There Is A Pain, Inside My Heart
You Mean So Much To Me
Girl, I Love You, Girl, I Love You So Bad

And If You Leave, My Pain Will Go
But That's No Good To Me
Girl, I Love You, Yes, I Love You So Bad

Well It Feels So Good, Sometimes It Feels So Bad
This Is Worse Than Anything I've Ever Had

There Was A Pain, But Now You're Here
And I Don't Fear A Thing
Girl, I Love You, Yes, I Love You So Bad
And She Said, Boy, I Love You
Boy, I Love You So Bad

Girl, I Love You
Girl, I Love You So Bad

Well It Feels So Good, Sometimes It Feels So Bad
This Is Worse Than Anything I've Ever Had

There Was A Pain, But Now You're Near
And I Don't Fear A Thing
Girl, I Love You
Girl, I Love You So Bad
And She Said
Boy, I Love You
Boy, I Love You So Bad
Girl, I Love You
Girl, I Love You

Uma música do Paul Mccartney por dia - #47 Only Love Remains



A letra de Only Love Remains é uma graça. De fato, quando tudo acaba, só o amor permanece. Perfeito, como sempre.

Only Love Remains
Paul McCartney

And If You Take Your Love Away From Me,
I'm Only Going To Want It Back.
I'll Probably Pretend I Didn't See,
But Knowing Me, I'll Want You Back Again, And Again,
'Til The Word Has Lost It's Meaning,
And Love Is All That Stays. Only Love Remains.
If You Should Ever Feel That Something's Wrong,
I'm Going To Want To Put It Right,
To Bring A Happy Ending To Our Song,
I'll Carry On Believing In A Love.
If Your Love Was To Trickle Through My Fingers,
What Would It Leave Me With?
Only Love Remains. Only Love...
Old Enough And Strong Enough To Stretcch Across The World.
Taking The Sand Inside An Oyster, Changing It Into A Pearl.
Making Another Magig Transformation,
Find The Right Boy For The Right Girl.
When All Our Friends Have Gone Away And We're Alone,
There's Nothing Left To Show About,
Together We'll Explore The Great Unknown.
I'd Say We Won't Be Going Out Tonight,
Let Tonight Be The One That We Remember,
Hen Love Is All That Stays,
Only Love Remains... Only Love Remains...

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #46 From a Lover to a Friend



Uma balada mais recente do Paul, de 2001. Delicada e bonita.

From a Lover to a Friend
Paul McCartney

And when the time comes around
We will be duty bound
To tell the through of what we've seen
And what we haven't found
Will not be going down
Despite too easy ride to see

From a lover to a friend
Take your own advice
Let me love again
Now that you turned out to be
Someone I can trust
Someone I believe

Ohh la la la
How can I walk when I can't find a way
I have a dilemma
All I want is to tell me
You're going to take it away

From a lover to a friend
Take your own advice
Let me love again
Now that you turned out to be
Someone I can trust
Someone I believe

And what we haven't found
Will not be going down
Despite too easy ride to see

From a lover to a friend
You turned out to be
Someone I believe

From a lover to a friend
Take your own advice
Let me love again

Ohh la la la
How can I walk when I can't find a way
I have a dilemma
All I want is to tell me
You're going to take it away

From a lover to a friend
From a lover to a friend
From a lover to a friend
Let me love again

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #45 Here Today


A homenagem do Paul ao John é linda. No vídeo, uma imagem especial: Paul cantando, emocionado, num show. Para matar as saudades, no segundo vídeo uma colagem de fotos dos dois nos tempos dos Beatles.

Here Today
Paul McCartney

And If I Say I Really Knew You Well
What Would Your Answer Be.
If You Were Here Today.

Ooh- Ooh- Ooh- Here To - Day.

Well Knowing You,
You'd Probably Laugh And Say That We Were Worlds Apart.
If You Were Here Today.
Ooh- Ooh- Ooh- Here To - Day.

But As For Me,
I Still Remember How It Was Before.
And I Am Holding Back The Tears No More.
Ooh- Ooh- Ooh- I Love You, Ooh-

What About The Time We Met,
Well I Suppose That You Could Say That We Were Playing Hard To Get.
Didn't Understand A Thing.
But We Could Always Sing.

What About The Night We Cried,
Because There Wasn't Any Reason Left To Keep It All Inside.
Never Understood A Word.
But You Were Always There With A Smile.

And If I Say I Really Loved You
And Was Glad You Came Along.

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #44 A Day in the Life


Achei Neil Young e Paul cantando A Day in the Life. Um vídeo especial para minha queridíssima amiga Daniela Lazzari - tão fã do Neil Young quanto eu do Paul. Muito legal esse encontro, é muito bom ver dois grandes monstros do rock juntos, ainda firmes com essa idade.

A Day In The Life
Lennon/McCartney

I read the news today oh boy
About a lucky man who made the grade
And though the news was rather sad
Well I just had to laugh
I saw the photograph

He blew his mind out in a car
He didn't notice that the lights had changed
A crowd of people stood and stared
They'd seen his face before
Nobody was really sure if he was from the House of
Lords.

I saw a film today oh boy
The English Army had just won the war
A crowd of people turned away
But I just had a look
Having read the book, I'd love to turn you on...

Woke up, got out of bed,
Dragged a comb across my head
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup,
And looking up I noticed I was late.

Found my coat and grabbed my hat
Made the bus in seconds flat
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke,
and Somebody spoke and I went into a dream

I heard the news today oh boy
Four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire
And though the holes were rather small
They had to count them all
Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the
Albert Hall.
I'd love to turn you on.

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #43 Somebody Who Cares


Uma linda balada do álbum Tug of War. Uma das coisas que mais gosto do Paul é que ele sempre é otimista nas suas letras. Lembro que uma vez quebrei o pau com uma professora de inglês porque ela achava Let it Be uma música de gente conformista. Não entendeu nada, a coitada. Há uma distância grande entre ser conformista e ser otimista. Olhar para frente, apesar dos problemas, é que faz o mundo andar. Não há vídeo dessa música, só áudio com uma colagem de fotos do Paul.

Somebody Who Cares
Paul McCartney

When Your Body Is Coming Apart At The Seams
And The Whole Thing's Feeling Low You're Convincing Yourself
That There's Nobody There, I Know
I Know Now You Feel

Like Somebody Has Taken The Wheels Off Your Car
When You Had Somewhere To Go Well It's Annoying
Not Going To Get Very Far I Know
But Somebody Cares

There's Always Someone, Somewhere, You Should Know By Now
Always Somebody Who Cares It's Happening Day In, Day Out
Well You Know By Now Always Somebody Who Cares

If You Don't Know It How Will It Find You?
How Will We Know Your Whereabouts?
But I Know How You Feel

I Know How You Feel

Like Somebody Has Taken The Wheels Off Your Car
When You Had Somewhere To Go Well It's Frustrating
Not Going To Get Very Far I Know
But Somebody Cares

There's Always Someone, Somewhere, You Should Know By Now
Always Somebody Who Cares It's Happening Day In, Day Out
Well You Know By Now Always Somebody Who Cares

If You Don't Know It How Will It Find You?
How Will We Know Your Whereabouts?
But I Know How You Feel

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #42 The Long and Winding Road


Uma das mais lindas dos Beatles, na minha opinião. Sem mais palavras. O vídeo é o original.

The Long And Winding Road
Paul McCartney

The long and winding road that leads to your door
Will never disappear.
I've seen that road before,
It always leads me here, lead me your door
Many times I've been alone
And many times I've cried
Anyway, you'll never know the many ways I've tried
But still they lead me back to the long and winding road.
You left me standing here
A long long time ago
Don't keep me waiting here,
Lead me to your door
Don't keep me waiting here,
Lead me to your door
The wild and windy night
That the rain washed away
Has left a pool of tears
Crying for the day
Don't leave me waiting here (don't keep me waiting)
Let me know the way

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #41 Mother Nature's Son


Mais uma da coleção country do Paul - Mother's Nature Son. Até acordeon (um dos meus instrumentos favoritos) tem na música, no vídeo gravado no Texas - acho que não por acaso.

Mother Nature's son
Paul McCartney

Born a poor young country boy, Mother Nature's son
All day long I'm sitting singing songs for everyone

Sit beside a mountain stream, see her waters rise
Listen to the pretty sound of music as she flies

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo

Find me in my field of grass, Mother Nature's son
Swaying daises sing a lazy song beneath the sun

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo doo
Yeah yeah yeah

Mm mm mm mm mm mm mm
Mm mm mm, ooh ooh ooh
Mm mm mm mm mm mm mm
Mm mm mm mm, wah wah wah

Wah, Mother Nature's son

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #40 With a Little Luck


Uma balada linda do Paul, de 1978. A letra é muito fofa também: "Com um pouco de sorte, nós podemos fazer as coisas darem certo." E não é?

With a Little Luck
Paul McCartney

With a little luck, we can help it out.
We can make this whole damn thing work out.
With a little love, we can lay it down.
Can’t you feel the town exploding?
There is no end to what we can do together.
There is no end, there is no end.
The wiliow turns his back on inclement weather;
And if he can do it, we can do it, just me and you,

And a little luck, we can clear it up.
We can bring it in for a landing,
With a little luck, we can turn it on.
There can be no misunderstanding.

There is no end to what we can do together.
There is no end, there is no end.
The willow turns his back on inclement weather;
We can do it, just me and you.

With a little push, we could set it off.
We can send it rocketing skywards.
With a little love, we could shake it up.
Don’t you feel the comet exploding?

With a little luck.
With a little luck.
With a little luck, a little luck, a little luck.
With a little luck.
With a little luck.
With a little luck, a little luck, a little luck.

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #39 Waterfalls


Música pós-wings, de 1980. O vídeo é bem 80´s, com o Paul com jeitão do tempo dos Beatles, apesar de estar perto dos 40.

Waterfalls
Paul McCartney

Don't Go Jumping Waterfalls
Please Keep To The Lake
People Who Jump Waterfalls
Sometimes Can Make Mistakes

And I Need Love, Yeah I Need Love
Like A Second Needs An Hour
Like A Raindrop Needs A Shower
Yeah I Need Love Every Minute Of The Day
And It Wouldn't Be The Same
If You Ever Should Decide To Go Away

And I Need Love, Yeah I Need Love
Like A Castle Needs A Tower
Like A Garden Needs A Flower
Yeah I Need Love Every Minute Of The Day
And It Wouldn't Be The Same
If You Ever Should Decide To Go Away

Don't Go Chasing Polar Bears
In The Great Unknown
Some Big Friendly Polar Bear
Might Want To Take You Home

And I Need Love, Yeah I Need Love
Like A Second Needs An Hour
Like A Raindrop Needs A Shower
Yeah I Need Love Every Minute Of The Day
And It Wouldn't Be The Same
If You Ever Should Decide To Go Away

Don't Run After Motor Cars
Please Stay On The Side
Someone's Glossy Motor Car
Might Take You For A Ride

And I Need Love, Yeah I Need Love
Like A Castle Needs A Tower
Like A Garden Needs A Flower
Yeah I Need Love, Said I Need Love
Like A Raindrop Needs A Shower
Like A Second Needs An Hour
Every Minute Of The Day
And It Wouldn't Be The Same
If You Ever Should Decide To Go Away

Don't Go Jumping Waterfalls
Please Keep To The Lake

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #38 One More Kiss


Música do disco Red Rose Speedway, de 1973, com os Wings. Bonitinha, jeito country. Acho que em outra vida ele nasceu no interior dos EUA e era cowboy. Não tem vídeo, então vai só o aúdio com uma colagem de fotos do Paul.

One More Kiss
Paul McCartney

Only One More Kiss
I Didn't Mean To Hurt You Little Girl
Let's Make It One To Remember
Only One More Kiss

I Said A Foolish Thing Last Night
I Didn't Think You'd Take It Bad
But Now I'm On My Way Again And Just Before I Go

Only One More Kiss
I Never Mean To Hurt You Little Girl
Let's Make It One To Remember
Only One More Kiss

Solo

Only One More Kiss
I Didn't Mean To Hurt You Little Girl
Let's Make It One To Remember
Only One More Kiss

Somebody's Built A Home For Us
Someday We'll See It Standing There
But Like The Wind That Has To Blow
I Must Be On My Way

Only One More Kiss
I Never Mean To Hurt You Little Girl
Let's Make It One To Remember
Only One More Kiss
Well Only One More Kiss
