Love in the Afternoon

length: 4:08

Love in the afternoon
Love in the afternoon

He walked right up and told me
That he liked my style
I noticed something different
In the way he smiled

He said, "You're quite a lady
And I know a place that's shady
Would you care to come
And lie with me awhile?"

And deep in my soul
I could feel a quiver
When he went down
And found that sweet old river

And he showed me the way
To find love in the afternoon

I knew he was a stranger
But I didn't care
We had something in common
But it wasn't clear

He said that life's a lover
When you love and like no other
Don't you think it's time
For you to get your share?

And deep in my soul
I could feel a quiver
When he went down
And found that sweet old river

And he showed me the way
To find love in the afternoon

I never could remember
Or recall his name
But I hang on to that memory
Just the same

I know it makes me crazy
It makes my head all hazy
To think about the way
He played that game

'Cause deep in my soul
I could feel a quiver
When he went down
And found that sweet old river

And he showed me the way
To find love in the afternoon

Yes, deep in my soul
I could feel a quiver
When he went down
And found that sweet old river

And he showed me the way to find
Showed me and showed me
And showed me the way
To find love in the afternoon

Guava Jelly

You say you love me
I say I love you
So why don't you stop your cryin'
Dry your weeping eyes
You know I love you
Baby, here I am,
Come rub it on my belly

Baby, here I am,
Come rub it on my belly
Like Guava Jelly

You say you need me
I say I need you too
So why don't you stop your cryin'
Dry your weeping eyes
You know I love you

Baby, here I am,
Come rub it on my belly
Like Guava Jelly
Baby, here I am,
Come rub it on my belly
Like Guava Jelly

Ooh rub it baby (repeated to
background voices)
Ooh Rub it over me….
(Chorus in background)
Keep rubbin' on my belly (X2)
Rub it Rub Rub it…
Ooh rub it on my belly
Keep rubbin on my belly (fade)

Grandma's Hands

length: 3:27
composer: Bill Withers
lyricist: Bill Withers
Grandma's hands, clapped in church on Sunday morning
Grandma's hands, played the tambourine so well
Grandma's hand used to issue out a warning

She'd say, "Baby, don't you run so fast
Might fall on a piece of glass, might be snakes there in my grass"

Grandma's hands, I'm talkin' 'bout my grandma's hands
Grandma's hands, soothed the local unwed mother
My grandma's hands used to ache sometimes and swell

Grandma's hands used to lift her face
And tell her she'd say, "Baby, grandma understands
But you really loved that man and put herself in Jesus' hands"

Grandma's hands, yeah, I'm talking, I'm talking 'bout my grandma, yeah
Grandma's hands used to hand me a piece of candy
Grandma's hands, picked me up each time I fell
Grandma's hands, boy, they really came in handy

She'd say, "Nettie, don't you whip that girl
What you wanna spank her for she didn't drop no apple-core"
But I don' have grandma anymore
If I get to Heaven I'll look for grandma's hands

I'm talking 'bout my grandma, talking 'bout my grandma, oh yeah
I'm talking 'bout my grandma, I'm talking 'bout my grandma, yeah
Grandma, grandma, I'm talking 'bout my grandma

I Won't Last a Day Without You

length: 4:19
Day after day I must face a world of strangers
Where I don't belong, I'm not that strong
It's nice to know that there's someone I can turn to
Who will always care, you're always there

When there's no getting over that rainbow
When my smallest of dreams won't come true
I can take all the madness the world has to give
But I won't last a day without you

So, many times when the city seems to be without
A friendly face, a lonely place
It's nice to know that you'll be there if I need you
And you'll always smile, it's all worthwhile

When there's no getting over that rainbow
When my smallest of dreams won't come true
I can take all the madness the world has to give
But I won't last a day without you

Touch me and I end up singing
Troubles seem to up and disappear
You touch me with the love you're bringing
I can't really lose when you're near, when you're near

And love, if all my friends have forgotten half their promises
They're not unkind, just hard to find
One look at you and I know that I could learn to live
Without the rest, I found the best

When there's no getting over that rainbow
When my smallest of dreams won't come true
I can take all the madness the world has to give
But I won't last a day without you
No, I won't last a day without you
Can't last a day without you

Jubilation

length: 3:55
Rejubilation with some celebration beginning
Total rejection to lies and deception and sinning

Sinners take key
For the life that you lead is deceiving
Nothing replaces a man
That embraces believing, no

People take heart
It's the time to be sport
To be honest
Total reunion
There's one last communion upon us

Sinners take the key
For the life that you lead is deceiving
Nothing replaces a man
That embraces believing, no

You know I'm betting, I'm betting on Jesus
I'm betting on Jesus, I'm hoping
I'm hoping hell freezes
I'm hoping it just freezes
The devil, I'm talking 'bout the devil

Oh oh oh, Ooh Ooh Ooh

As for the children
God bless and God will
They'd know sorrow
Share the confusion
And life's disillusion tomorrow

Sinners take key
For the life that you lead is deceiving
Nothing replaces a man that embraces believing, no

You know I'm betting
I'm betting on Jesus
I'm hoping, I'm hoping hell freezes
I'm hoping, I'm hoping it just freezes the devil
Get down on the devil

Hey Jubilation with some celebrating beginning
Total rejection to lies and deception and sinning

Sinners take key
For the life that you lead is deceiving, yeah
Nothing replaces a man
That embraces believing, no

Jubilation, jubilation, jubilation
I said jubilation
Oh oh oh, hey, jubilation
I need it now - Hey Jubilation
Hey, Jubilation
I'm gonna have a great jubilation
Get some celebration
Hey Jubilation
Lemme hear you say
Lemme hear you say
Yeah

Simple Man

length: 3:04
I am a simple girl
And I sing a simple song
I've never been so much in love
And never hurt so bad
At the same time
I am a simple girl
And I play a simple tune
I wish that I could see you
Once again across the room
Like the first time
I just wanna hold ya
I don't wanna hold ya down
I hear what you're saying'
And you're spinning my head around
And I can't make it alone
The ending of the tale
Is the singing of the song
All make me proud to be a woman;
Only you can make me strong
Like the last time
I just wanna hold ya
I don't wanna hold ya down
I hear what you're saying'
And you're spinning my head around
And I can't make it alone
I don't wanna make it alone

Life on Mars

length: 3:12
It's a God-awful small affair
To the girl with the mousy hair
But her mummy is yelling "No"
And her daddy has told her to go

But her friend is nowhere to be seen
Now she walks through her sunken dream
To the seat with the clearest view
And she's hooked to the silver screen

But the film is a saddening bore
For she's lived it ten times or more
She could spit in the eyes of fools
As they ask her to focus on

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man! Look at those cavemen go
It's the freakiest show
Take a look at the Lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

It's on America's tortured brow
That Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow
Now the workers have struck for fame
'Cause Lennon's on sale again
See the mice in their million hordes
From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads
Rule Britannia is out of bounds
To my mother, my dog, and clowns
But the film is a saddening bore
'Cause I wrote it ten times or more
It's about to be writ again
As I ask you to focus on

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man! Look at those cavemen go
It's the freakiest show
Take a look at the Lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

Since I Don't Have You

length: 2:53
I don't have plans and schemes
And I don't have hopes and dreams
I don't have anything
Since I don't have you
I don't have fond desires
And I don't have happy hours
I don't have anything
Since I don't have you
I don't have happiness
And I guess I never will have it again
When you walked out on me
In walked all misery
And it's been here since then
For I don't have love to share
I don't have one who cares
I don't have anything
Since I don't have you
Oo, oo, oo
Mmm

Crying Time

length: 2:52
composer: Buck Owens
lyricist: Buck Owens
Oh, it's cryin' time again, you're gonna leave me
I can see that far away look in your eyes
I can tell by the way you hold me darlin' oooh
That it won't be long before it's cryin' time

Now they say that absence makes the heart grow fonder (fonder)
And that tears are only rain to make love grow
Well my love for you could never grow no stronger (stronger)
If I lived to be a hundred years old

Oh, it's cryin' time again, you're gonna leave me
I can see that far away look in your eyes
I can tell by the way you hold me darlin'. Yeah now
That it won't be long before it's cryin' time

Now you say you've found someone that you love better (better)
That's the way it's happened every time before
And as sure as the sun comes up tomorrow ('morrow)
Cryin' time will start when you walk out the door

Oh, it's cryin' time again, you're gonna leave me
I can see that far away look in your eyes
I can tell by the way you hold me darlin'. Alright now
That it won't be long before it's cryin' time
(That it won't be long before it's cryin' time)

Let the Good Times Roll

length: 4:55
It's not easy to be happy
Sometimes it's more comfortable to be sad
That is why I like this song
Mmm

Come on baby
Let the good times roll
Come on baby
Let me thrill your soul
Mmm

Came on baby
Let the good times roll.
Roll on and on
Come on baby

Let me hold you tight
Tell me everything is right tonight
Come on baby
Let the good times roll

Roll on and on
I feel so good
Mmm

In your arms
Sugar baby
You are my good luck charms
Come on baby
Let the good times roll
Come on baby
Let me thrill your soul

Come on, come on, baby
Let the good times roll
Roll on and on
Come on baby while the thrill is on
Come on baby let us have some fun
Come on baby
Let the good times roll
Roll on and on
Come on baby let's close the door
Come on baby let us sweat some more
Come on baby
Let the good times roll
Roll on and on
You know I, you know I feel so good
And I'll let you hold
Come on baby
Rock me all night long
Come on baby
Let the good times roll
Come on baby
Let it thrill your soul
Come on baby
Let the good times roll
Roll on and on
Come on baby
