One Night Stands

length: 4:08

The night life has its glamour when you're lonely,
It seems to help you make it for awhile.
It calls to fools who think the only answer,
Is wrapped up in a warm and willin' smile.

And so I went out searching every evening,
Oh I'd drink the wine to whet my appetite.
'Til I'd find some pretty girl back in the corner,
To be my life's companion for the night.

But I just can't seem to take it anymore,
I feel empty walkin' through a swingin' door.
Seein' all the lonely people, just starin' at the band,
Wrapped inside their feelings, playin' one night stands.

I'd take her home to tell her my sad story,
I'd put a tear drop into every word.
Oh I felt just like a genius when I made up,
The lies that I don't think she even heard.

The wine would start to bring us close together,
Our lips would meet to quench a hungry thrirst.
We'd slip into a world of champagne feelings.
But in the mornin' all the bubbles burst.

And I just can't seem to take it anymore,
I feel empty walkin' through a swingin' door.
Seein' all the lonely people, just starin' at the band,
Wrapped inside their feelings, playing one night stands.

No I just can't seem to take it anymore,
I feel empty walkin' through a swingin' door.
Seein' all the lonely people just starin' at the band.
Wrapped inside their feelings, playin' one night stands.

(Wrapped inside their feelings)
Playin' one night stands.

Mobile Boogie

length: 2:33
If the South woulda won, we woulda had it made
I'd probably run for President of the Southern States
The day Elvis passed away would be our national holiday
If the South woulda won, we woulda had it made

I'd make my Supreme Court down in Texas
And we wouldn't have no killers getting off free
If they were proven guilty, then they would swing quickly
Instead of writin' books and smilin' on TV

We'd all learn Cajan cookin' in Louisiana
And I'd put that capital back in Alabama
We'd put Florida on the right track, 'cause we'd take Miami back
And throw all them pushers in the slammer

Oh, if the south woulda won, we woulda had it made
I'd probably run for President of the Southern States
The day young Skynyrd died, we'd show our southern pride
If the south woulda won, we woulda had it made
"Play a little dixieland boys, ah yes"

I'd have all the whiskey made in Tennessee
And all the horses raised in those Kentucky hills
The national treasury would be in Tupelo, Mississippi
And I'd put Hank Williams picture on one hundred dollar bill

I'd have all the cars made in the Carolinas
And I'd ban all the ones made in China
I'd have every girl child sent to Georgia to learn to smile
And talk with that southern accent that drives men wild

I'd have all the fiddles made in Virginia
'Cause they sure can make 'em sound so fine
I'm going up on Wolverton Mountain and see ole Clifton Clowers
And have a sip of his good ole Arkansas wine

Hey, if the South woulda won we'd a had it made
I'd probably run for President of the Southern States
When Patsy Cline passed away, that would be our national holiday
If the South woulda won, we'd a had it made, olay he hee hee
I said if the South woulda won, we would a had it made

Might even be better off

Building Memories

length: 2:31

I don't have to tell you what I've got on my mind
Cause you already know it you can see it in my eyes
After the night is over and the morning you'll set me free
And I'll be remembering while you're forgetting me

But tonight you're going love me like you've known me all of your life
Yes tonight you're gonna make me feel alright
But I'm just another page in your book of broken dreams
And you're my cornerstone for building memories

Tomorrow is a lonely world for you and me to face
Trying in desperation just to make it through the day
If I can stay half sober and you would ever change
Together we can make it we got only us to blame

But tonight you're going love me like you've known me all of your life
Yes tonight you're gonna make me feel alright
But I'm just another page in your book of broken dreams
And you're my cornerstone for building memories

Honey, Won't You Call Me

She's Still the Star (On the Stage of My Mind)

length: 2:28

Did you say she asked about me today?
I guess that she heard of the records I've made
Tell her I've found money but I ain't found the time
But she's still the star on the stage of my mind
Since you mentioned her who I already miss
The look of her smile and the touch of her kiss
And I thought I was through with feeling like this

But in this point in time, she's the star on the stage of my mind
The runway lights whisper as the plane passes by
Where's the dark-haired young lover that was with you last time?
The stewardess smiles and the first class seat cries
Cause to all others I'm blind for she's still the star on the stage of my mind
Tell her I've found money but I ain't found the time

All by Myself

length: 3:02
composer: Eric Carmen, Сергей Васильевич Рахманинов
lyricist: Eric Carmen
When I was young
I never needed anyone
And makin' love was just for fun
Those days are gone

Livin' alone
I think of all the friends Ive known
But when I dial the telephone
Nobody's home

All by myself
Don't wanna be
All by myself anymore
All by myself
Don't wanna live
All by myself anymore

Hard to be sure
Some times I feel so insecure
And love so distant and obscure
Remains the cure

All by myself
Don't wanna be
All by myself anymore
All by myself
Don't wanna live
All by myself anymore

Cherokee

length: 2:52
Well, a Cherokee chief as he dances along
He does an Indian boogie to a white man's song
Singin' hey ho a lina, hey ho a lina
A well a hey ho a lina, wup wup a witten a yeah

Well, he dances over here and he dances over there
And he keeps on a dancin' everywhere
Singin' hey ho a lina, hey ho a lina
A well a hey ho a lina, wup wup a witten a yeah

Well, he dances on the hill and he dances on the rock
But he keep on shakin' that tomahawk
Singin' hey ho a lina, hey ho a lina
A well a hey ho a lina, wup wup a witten a yeah

Well, he sings to the hills and he sings to the clouds
And he keep on singin' so big and proud
A now hey ho a lina, hey ho a lina
A well a hey ho a lina, wup wup a witten a yeah

He's a Cherokee chief as a you might know
And he keeps on sittin' singing nuven-yo
A now hey ho a lina, hey ho a lina
A well a hey ho a lina, wup wup a witten a yeah

Well, a Cherokee chief as he dances along
He does an Indian boogie to a white man's song
Singin' hey ho a lina, hey ho a lina
A well a hey ho a lina, wup wup a witten a yeah
