You're walkin' along the street, or you're at a party,
Or else you're alone and then you suddenly dig,
You're looking' in someone's eyes, you suddenly realize
That this could be the start of something big.

You're lunching at twenty-one and watchin' your diet,
Declining a charlotte russe, accepting a fig,
When out of a clear blue sky, it's suddenly gal and guy,
And this could be the start of something big.

There's no controlling the unrolling of your fate, my friend,
Who knows what's written in the magic book.
But when a lover you discover at the gate my friend,
Invite her in without a second look.

You're up in an aeroplane or dining at sardi's,
Or lying at malibu alone on the sand,
You suddenly hear a bell, and right away you can tell
That this could be the start of something grand.

This could be the start of something very big,
Why don't you play your part?
Please give your heart to me....and see.
This could be the start of something wonderful,
Why don't you take a chance?
Just try romance with me....and see.

Your watchin' the sun come up and countin' your money,
Or else in a dim cafe you're ordering wine,
Then suddenly there he is, and you wanna be where he is,
And this must be the start of something...
This could be the heart of something...
This could be the start of something big.

Once in A Lifetime
by Aretha Franklin

Just once in a lifetime

A man knows a moment

One wonderful moment

When fate takes his hand

And this is my moment

My once in a lifetime

When I can explore a new and exciting land

For once in my lifetime

I feel like a giant

I soar like an eagle

As though I had wings

For this is my moment

My destiny calls me

And though it may be just once in my lifetime

I'm gonna do great things

composer: Erroll Garner
Oh look, just look at me
I'm as helpless as a kitten up a tree
I feel like I'm clingin' to a cloud
I can' t understand
Why I get misty, holding your hand

Walk my way
And a thousand violins begin to play
Or is it the sound of your hello dear
That music I hear
Oh why I get misty, whenever you're near

You can see that you're leading me on?
But it's just, just what I want you to do
Can I help it, how hopelessly I'm lost
That's why I'm following you

And on my own, see on my very own
That I wander through this great big wide world all alone
Never knowing my right hand from my left
My hat from my glove
I'm too misty, too much in love
I say I'm just too misty
Very very very much in love

More than greatest love the world has known
This is the love I'll give to you alone
More than the simple things that I try to say
I only live to love you more each day

More than you'll ever know
My arms long to hold you so
My life is in your keeping, laughing, sleeping, crying, weeping

Longer than always is a long time
But far beyond forever you'll be mine

And I know I never lived before
But my heart is very sure
No one else could love you more

More than the simple things that I try to say
I only live to love you more each day

More than you'll ever know
My arms long to hold you so
My life is in your keeping, laughing, sleeping, crying, weeping

Longer than always is a long time
But far beyond forever you'll be mine

I know I never lived before
But my heart is very sure
No one else could, no one else could love you
No one else could, no one else could love you more
No one else could

There is no greater love
Than what I feel for you
No greater love,
No heart so true

There is no greater thrill
Than what you bring to me
No sweeter song
Than what you sing to me

You're the sweetest thing
I have ever known
And to think that
You are mine alone.

There is no greater love
In all the world, it's true
No greater love
Than what I feel for you

You're the sweetest thing
I have ever known,
And to think that
You are mine alone.

There is no greater love
In all the world, it's true
No greater love
Than what I feel for you

lyricist: Jo Trent
composer: Peter de Rose, Harry Richman
Look out for me oh muddy water your mysteries are deep and wide
And I got a need for going some place
And I got a need to climb upon your back and ride
Look for me when you see me comin' I may be runnin' I don't know
I may be tired and runnin' fever but I'll be headed south to the mouth of the Ohio
So look out for me oh muddy water

Well I been down to the pain and sorrow I thought no tomorrow's comin' in
So I put my pole to the river bottom
And I've got to hide some place and find myself again
Look out for me oh muddy water
Look out for me oh muddy water

If I had a hammer,
I'd hammer in the morning,
I'd hammer in the evening,
All over this land.
I'd hammer out danger,
I'd hammer out warning,
I'd hammer out love between my brothers and my sisters,
All over this land.
Oooh-oooh-oooh.

If I had a bell,
I'd ring it in the morning,
I'd ring it in the evening,
All over this land.
I'd ring out danger,
I'd ring out warning,
I'd ring out love between my brothers and my sisters,
All over this land.
Oooh-oooh-oooh.

If I had a song,
I'd sing it in the morning,

All over this land.
I'd sing out danger,
I'd sing out warning,
I'd sing out love between my brothers and my sisters,
All over this land.
Oooh-oooh-oooh.

Well, I got a hammer,
And I got a bell,
And I got a song to sing,
All over this land.
It's a hammer of justice,
It's a bell of freedom,
It's a song about love between my brothers and my sisters,
All over this land.

It's a hammer of justice,
It's a bell of freedom,
It's a song about love between my brothers and my sisters,
All over this laa-aaa-and.

Impossible

piano: Ted Harris
vocal: Aretha Franklin
drums (drum set): Hindal Butts
composer: Steve Allen
lyricist: Steve Allen
If they had ever told me
How sweet a kiss could be
I would have said, impossible,
Impossible for me

And if they said, you'll find love
Beyond the rainbows end
I would have said, Impossible,
Impossible, my friend.

To dream about what might have been
Is strange enough for me
But now it seems I'm livin' in
A dream too beautiful to be

If they had said a moonbeam
Would calm a stormy sea
I would have said, impossible,
But now at last I see
That nothing is impossible
If you are here with me.

Without the One You Love

length: 3:34
bass: James Richardson
guitar: Kenny Burrell
vocal: Aretha Franklin
drums (drum set): Hindal Butts
writer: Aretha Franklin
Baby, I need your good lovin'
Got to have your love right now, baby
So come and fill my empty arms
And make my life worthwhile

Because I'm not livin', baby, I only exist
I'll never laugh, I'll never smile no more
Don't care if I stay like this, because

Without the one you love, life is not worthwhile
Without your love, my dear, I'm like a fatherless child
So come and fill my empty arms
And make my life worthwhile

When I feel the hurt comin' on
I stop and cry like I'm cryin'
(Right now)
People ask why would a grown man cry
I drop my head and I sigh and reply

Without the one you love, life is not worthwhile
Without your love, my dear, I'm like a fatherless child
So come and fill my empty arms
And make my life worthwhile

(Baby, I need your good lovin')
Sometimes I feel like a wanderer
(Got to have your love right now)
Searching for peace within

(Baby, I need your good lovin')
I need you my darling
(Got to have your love right now)
Like a lost soul needs a friend

So come and fill my empty arms
And fill my empty life

(Baby, I need your good lovin')
Nobody knows the emptiness I feel
(Got to have your love right now)
And I feel it

(Baby, I need your good lovin')
Nobody knows the loneliness I feel
(Got to have your love right now)
And I feel it because

Without the one you love, life is not worthwhile
Without your love, my dear, I'm like a fatherless child
So come and fill my empty arms
And make my life worthwhile

composer: Richard M. Jones

Trouble in mind, I'm blue
But I won't be blue always,
'Cause that sun is gonna shine in my back door someday

I'm going down to the river
I'm going top take me a rocking chair
and if the blues don't leave me, I rock on away from here

Trouble in mind, I'm blue
But I won't be blue always,
'Cause that sun is gonna shine in my back door someday

Trouble in mind, that's true
I have almost lost my mind
Life ain't worth living, I feel like I could die

Trouble in mind, I'm blue
My poor heart is healing slow
I've never had such trouble in my whole life before

I'm gonna lay my head on some lonesome railroad line
and let that 2:19 special ease my troubled mind

Trouble in mind, I'm blue,
But I won't be blue always
'Cause that sun is gonna shine in my back door someday

Love for Sale!
Advertising young love for sale
Who would like to pay the price for a trip to Paradise?
Love for Sale!

Who will buy?
Who would like to sample my supply?
Who would like to climb the stairs?
Who would like to try my wares?

Love for Sale!
Let the poets fight for love in their childish ways
I know every type of love better far than they
If you want the thrill of love

I've been through the mill of love
Old love
New love
Everything but true love!
Love for Sale
