I Don’t Want to Go Home

length: 3:43
producer: Steven Van Zandt
engineer: Jimmy Iovine
arranger: Steven Van Zandt
composer: Steven Van Zandt
lyricist: Steven Van Zandt

I know that it's getting late
But I don't want to go home
I am in no hurry baby time can wait
I don't want to go home
Listen to the man sing his song
I don't want to go home
I don't mind baby to stay all night long
Cause I don't want to go home

Listen baby

I know we had to try
To reach up and touch the sky baby
What ever happened to you and I
That I don't want to go home

Look at all the people staying
Saying I don't want to go home
In the night
I don't want to go home
I know the words to the song I feel
I don't want to go home
I know it's talking about the way I feel
I don't want to go home

Listen baby

I know we had to try
To reach up and touch the sky baby
What ever happened to you and I
That I don't want to go home

I want to hear people laughing and having a good time
I want to know why she told me she had to go
Why did she leave me lonely

I know it's time to go
But I don't want to go home
You don't play the blues soft and low
Cause I don't want to go home

Listen baby

I know we had to try
To reach up and touch the sky baby
What ever happened to you and I
That I don't want to go home

Broke Down Piece of Man

length: 3:27
writer: Steve Cropper, Joe Shamwell

Baby, baby, without your love

Take a look at me, darling, come on, baby
Tell me what you see now, baby
I’m only half the man now, honey
That I used to be, Lord have mercy
Since you been gone now, baby
My life ain’t nothin’ but an empty shell
Say you’ll come back, darling
You’ve got to come back and make this lonely man well

‘Cause I’m a broke down piece of man
I’m a broke down piece of man, baby
I’m just a broke down piece of man
Without your love

Heartache and misery, baby
Well, they’re walking right by my side now, baby
Sadness came and got a hold on me
You better get on over here before I cry
You’ve got to give our love now, baby
You got to give our love one more chance
Well that’s the only way darling
That this old heart of mine will last

‘Cause I’m a broke down piece of man
I’m just a broke down piece of man, baby
I’m a broke down piece of man
Without your love

Nobody else can cure the hurt I got
It’s your love I need and I need it a lot
Please give our love now, baby
Got to give our love one more chance
‘Cause that’s the only way, darling
Oh, that this old heart of mine can last

‘Cause I’m a broke down piece of man
I’m just a broke down piece of man, baby
I’m a broke down piece of man
Without your love


Talk to Me

lyricist: Bruce Springsteen
(B. Springsteen)

Well every night I see a light up in your window
But every night you won't answer your door
But although you won't ever let me in
From the street I can see your silhouette sittin' close to him

What must I do?
What does it take?
To get you to
Talk to me
Until the night is over
Come on, baby
Talk to me
Well until the night is over

I got a full week's pay
And, baby, I've been working hard each day
I'm not asking for the world you see
I'm just asking, girl
Talk to me

Well late at night I hear the music that you're playing soft and low
Yes and late at night I see the two of you swayin' so close
I don't understand, darling, what was my sin?
Why am I down here below while you're up there with him?

What did I do?
What did I say?
What must I pay?
To get you to
Talk to me
Until the night is over
Little darling, won't you
Talk to me
Well until the night is over
Yea yea yea
I got a full week's pay
And baby I've been working hard each day
I'm not asking for the world you see
I'm just asking girl
Talk to me

I don't understand, darling, what was my sin?
Why am I down here below while you're up there with him?

What did I do?
What did I say?
What must I pay?
To get you to
Talk to me
Until the night is over
Come on, baby
Talk to me
Well until the night is over
Yea yea yea
I got a full week's pay
And baby
I've been working hard each day
I'm not asking for the world you see
I'm down on my bended knees
I'm just asking darling please won't you

Love on the Wrong Side of Town

length: 3:11
composer: Bruce Springsteen, Steven Van Zandt
lyricist: Bruce Springsteen, Steven Van Zandt

I was there when you needed someone
Look now, baby, see what you have undone
I did most of the talking
But you were the one who lied

Bye-bye, baby, our love is tumblin' down
I can't be hangin' around
Love on the wrong side of town

You were gone when I needed you by my side
There was no one to dry the tears from my eyes
You were the one who cheated
But I was the one who cried

Bye-bye, baby, our love is tumblin' down
I can't be hangin' around
Love on the wrong side of town
Love on the wrong side of town
Bye-bye, baby, love on the wrong side of town
Bye-bye, baby

lyricist: Bruce Springsteen
(B. Springsteen)

When I get home from my job
I turn on my T.V.
But I can’t keep my mind on the show
When I lay down at night
I can’t get no sleep
So I turn on the radio
But, the only sound I hear
Is you whisperin’ in my ear
The words that you used to say
Now my days grow longer
As my love grows stronger
And the fever gets worse and

I got a fever for a girl
I got the fever
Oh, I got the fever
There ain’t nothing that a poor boy can do
When he’s got the fever for a girl
I got the fever
Oh, I got the fever
Well, you left this little boy

I can remember comin’ home
I see you standin’ at the stove
With the dishes on the table
Dinner ready to go
Or maybe on out to a movie show
Something that you’d like to see
Oh, baby, you’re my sun in the morning
And my moon at night
I think about you, baby
I feel alright
Days grow longer
As my love grows stronger
And the fever gets worse and

I’ve got the fever for the girl
I got the fever
Oh, I got the fever
There ain’t nothing that a poor boy can do
When he’s got the fever for a girl
Got the fever
Oh, I got the fever
Yea, you left this little boy blue

I can remember comin’ home
I see you standin’ at the stove
With the dishes on the table
Dinner ready to go
Or maybe on out to a movie show
Something that you’d like to see
Oh, baby, you’re my sun in the morning
And my moon at night
I think about you, baby
I feel alright
Days grow longer
Love grows stronger
And the fever gets worse and

I’ve got the fever for the girl
I got the fever
Oh, I got the fever
There ain’t nothing, there ain’t nothin’ I can do
When he’s got the fever for a girl
Got the fever
Oh, I got the fever
Left this little boy blue, well

Sure left this little boy blue
There ain’t nothin’ I can do
Oh, I’ve got the fever, baby
Baby please come home
I don’t wanna be alone
I got the fever for you, girl

(B. Springsteen/J. Lyon/S. Van Zandt)

Here I am, baby, right where you found me
Trying to break these chains that surround me
If I look a little different it's 'cause I've changed
Half-painted pictures are all that remains

I can't let my past mistakes, let 'em bring me down
I ain't waitin' on no angel of mercy
I tried my best and I can't help myself

I'm trapped again
I can't get out without losing you
I'm trapped again
Why can't you feel what I'm going through?
I'm trapped again
I need an answer, girl, can't you see?
I'm trapped again
Come and rescue me

Monday morning came so fast
What a fool to think that dreams would last
Close my eyes and it's still so clear
Remember the night, girl, the world disappeared

Can't let the hand of fate, let it drag me down
I can't get no angel of mercy
I came to stay but I got swept away

I'm trapped again
I can't get out without losing you
I'm trapped again
Why can't you feel what I'm going through?
I'm trapped again
I need an answer, girl, can't you see?
I'm trapped again
Come and rescue me

Can't let the hand of fate, let it drag me down
I can't get no angel of mercy
I came to stay but I got swept away

I'm trapped again
I can't get out without losing you
I'm trapped again
Why can't you feel what I'm going through?
I'm trapped again
I need an answer, girl, can't you see?
I'm trapped again
Come and rescue me

Without Love

length: 4:30
writer: Ivy Jo Hunter, Carolyn Franklin
(I. J. Hunter/C. Franklin)

All night long I could not sleep
For ringing in my ear
I heard a sweet, soft melody, yes I did
The words at first, I couldn't make out clear
The black cloud had drifted away
And, baby, this is what I heard her say, she said

Without love, there's nothing you can do - oh, oh, oh
Without love, you're not really you - oh, baby

All night long she spoke to me
She whispered in my ear
Beneath that sweet, soft melody
She said, "Don't you know that a rich man
A rich man that might be poor
If money is all that he has"

Without love, there's nothing you can do - oh, oh, oh
Without love, you're not really you - oh, baby

And all night long she spoke to me
She whispered in my ear
Way beneath that sweet, soft melody
And this is what she said
She said, "Hey, baby, don't you know that a rich man
A rich man that might be poor
If money is all that he has"

Baby, without love, there's nothing you can do - oh, oh, oh
Without love, you're not really you - oh, oh, oh

When You Dance

length: 5:23
composer: Bruce Springsteen, Steven Van Zandt
lyricist: Bruce Springsteen, Steven Van Zandt
When you dance, I hear the music rocking everywhere
When you dance, I see the light shining through your hair
When you dance, the band is blowing like a hurricane
When you dance, you look so fine but you don't know my name

Come here, baby, don't be afraid
Just one taste won't do
I can't hold back one more day
Sugar, I know I got to dance with you

When you dance, your smile's hiding what you're thinking of
When you dance, your body trembles like you're making love
When you move, baby, my soul is aching and my blood runs hot
Running through me now, my heart is breaking
Shaking what you got

Come here, baby, don't be afraid
Just one taste won't do
I can't hold back one more day
Sugar, I know I got to dance with you

Come here, baby, don't be afraid
Just one taste won't do
I can't hold back one more day
Sugar, I know I got to dance with you

When you dance, I hear the music rocking everywhere
When you dance, the sky can tumble, honey, I don't care
When you dance
When you dance
When you dance

This Time It’s for Real

length: 4:04
composer: Steven Van Zandt
lyricist: Steven Van Zandt
Baby, you can't slow me down
I've come too far to ever turn back now
I've spent my whole life working
Working so hard for it, yes I did

Baby, I changed the odds today
Gonna push the scales, baby, till they tilt my way
Pass that bottle, deal the cards
'Cause I ain't waiting no more, no more

You can say what you want to
But there ain't nothing gonna change my mind

Baby, this time it's for real
I know, I know it, baby
This time it's for real
It's got to be real, baby

The time has come and I've paid the bill
I'll keep the glass raised 'till my cup is filled
I'm gonna keep on shaking
'Till it all comes tumblin' down
Yes I will, baby

Baby, don't give me no advice
Gonna shoot it all, baby, on a roll of the dice
When you start with nothing
You ain't got nothing to lose
Listen, baby

Well you can do what you want to
But there ain't nothing gonna stop me now

Baby, this time it's for real
I know, I know it baby
This time it's for real
I said, said come on
Got to be, baby

You can stay if you want to
It don't make a bit of difference to me

Baby, this time it's for real
I know, I know it baby
This time it's for real

I know it's got to be real now
I know it this time, baby
I know it, come on, baby
I know, I know, I know it
Baby, this time it's for real
I know it's got to be real
Got to be, got to be real
I know it
It's got to be, got to be real

Havin’ a Party

(S. Cooke)

We're havin' a party
Everybody's swinging
Dancing to the music
On the radio
So listen, Mr. DJ
Keep those records playing
'Cause I'm having such a good time
Dancing with my baby

We're having a party
Dancing to the music
Played by the DJ
On the radio
Cokes are in the ice box
Popcorn's on the table
Me and my baby
Are out there on the floor

We're havin' a party
Everybody's swinging
Dancing to the music
On the radio
So listen, Mr. DJ
Keep those records playing
'Cause I'm having such a good time
Dancing with my baby

Everybody's swinging
Oldies, doing the twist now
If you take requests
I've got a few for you
Don't forget the soul twist
Play that one called "I Know"
I got to hear what suites me
No other songs will do

We're havin' a party
Everybody's swinging
Dancing to the music
On the radio
So listen, Mr. DJ
Keep those records playing
'Cause I'm having such a good time
Dancing with my baby

'Cause I'm having such a good time
Dancing with my baby
