Ooh, ah
Ooh, ah
Ooh, ah
Ooh, ah

Enter Maurice
My dearest darling, come closer to Maurice so I can whisper
sweet words of epismetology in your ear and speak to you of
the pompitous of love. Even though our road is rough and
long, for you to leave me at this time darling, must surely
be wrong. So come back and reconsider one more thing. Maurice
is the only one to make your little heart sing.

Ooh mama ooh, ooh mama ooh
How can you do the things that you do?
Ooh mama ooh, ooh mama ooh
I'm gonna buy you some brand new shoes
I'm gonna buy you some brand new shoes

Enter Maurice
I don't know why you won't make no more apple pie. Since you've
been gone it's been starvation mama, ever since I lost my
probation. Don't you remember the time that you ended up in
jail? That's right darling, it was Maurice who went your bail.
Now, there's just one more thing that I want to say before you turn
and walk away.

Bom Bom Bom Bom do wah da di dit
Bom Bom Bom Bom do wah da di dit
Bom Bom Bom Bom do wah da di dit...

Darling please, don't walk out that door, you must reconsider
darling, you've done it so many times before. It's not too late,
It's never too late, precious one, for Maurice to love you.
Just remember sweetheart, I bought myself a gun and I will be
the only one.

Don't you know that I'm high on you mama

High, high, high

Don't you know that I'm way up on a mountain
Don't you know that I'm way up in the air
Don't you know that I'm high on the sunshine

Heal Your Heart

length: 3:22
composer: Steve Miller
lyricist: Steve Miller
I know you took too long
Deep inside you baby something wrong
You got to get down, to the truth
I know it may hurt you mama but you got to do it
In the end it will heal your heart
Yes it will
In the end it will heal your heart
Yes it will

I gave you my love baby, you just used it
Gave you direction mama but you just lose it
People kept telling me that you were just crazy
I won't buy their talking baby, I know you just lazy
In the end it will waste your heart
Yes it will
In the end it will waste your heart

I was worried about your tomorrow
I was worried about all your sorrow
I know you took too long
Deep inside you mama there's something wrong
You got to get down to the truth
I know I may hurt you baby but you got to do it

In the end it will heal your heart
Yes it will
In the end it will heal your heart
Yes it will
Yes it will, yes it will, yes it will, yes it will

The Sun Is Going Down

composer: Steve Miller
lyricist: Steve Miller
Do doot do do dooo
Do doot doot do do
Do doot do do dooo
Do doot doot do do

Sittin' in a bar in San Francisco
Got no place to go
Sun is going down, man
Sun is going down

Sittin' in the bar out at the airport
Tryin' to flag a plane
Plane she won't fly
Plane she won't fly

I've been travellin' such a long, long time
Out here on this road
I've been livin' such a lonely life
Tryin' to get back home
Livin' a lonely life, tryin' to get back home

Do doot do do dooo
Do doot doot do do

I've been livin' such a lonely life
Out here on this road
I've been livin' such a lonely life
Tryin' to find a home
Tryin' to find a home
Sun is going down

Do doot do do dooo
Do doot doot do do

Somebody Somewhere Help Me

length: 2:34
composer: Steve Miller
lyricist: Steve Miller
Somebody somewhere told me
You were gonna break my heart
Somebody somewhere told me
You were gonna break me apart

I didn't listen and I didn't care
I didn't think that talk was anywhere
I didn't listen and I didn't care
Nobody told me 'bout your low down friends

Somebody somewhere help me
I got to find a brand new way
Somebody somewhere help me
I got to make a brand new way

I didn't listen and I didn't know
I didn't think it would hurt me so
I didn't listen and I didn't know
Nobody told me 'bout your low down friends

Somebody somewhere help me
I got to turn it, turn it 'round
Somebody somewhere help me
I got to get my feet on the ground

I didn't listen and I didn't care
I didn't think that talk was anywhere
I didn't listen and I didn't know
I didn't think it would hurt me so


Love’s Riddle

length: 3:24
composer: Steve Miller
lyricist: Steve Miller
What can you do when your love is untrue
And you're feeling blue and left in sorrow
And your love is in vain, and it causes you pain,
There's no tomorrow
Ooo Ooo Ooo Ooo....
Do be ah

What can you do when your love is untrue
And she's made you blue and left you in sorrow
And your love is in vain and it causes you pain,
You've no more sorrow
Ooo Ooo Ooo Ooo....


Fandango

composer: Steve Miller
lyricist: Steve Miller
Kim, come and play the drum
Kim, come and join the fun
Can you hear me?
Come and play the drum

Dance a light fandango
Take me 'round and 'round
Dance a light fandango
Never let me down

Dance a light fandango
Take me 'round and 'round
Dance a light fandango
Never let me down

Kim, do not be afraid
Kim, remember what we said
Can you hear me?
Come and play the drum
Come and play the drum

Nothing Lasts

length: 4:07
composer: Steve Miller
lyricist: Steve Miller
All the things you think and say
Float away into space
Done in thought or done in haste
They have no place, they leave no trace

All the things you think and do
Have become a part of you
All your deeds have come to pass
Nothing lasts, nothing lasts

Like a river flowing past your windowpane
Life's never the same
Like the sun you're born to set
You'll die in sin
And be born once again

Now you know, so damn well
That your life is a heaven and a hell
And it's very easy to tell
When you're sick and when you're well

So the secret to this life
Is so very easy to learn
If you ever love another
Never ask for anything in return

Like a river flowing past your windowpane
Life's never the same
Like the sun you're born to set
You'll die in sin
And be born once again

All the things you think and say
Float away into space
Done in thought or done in haste
They have no place, they leave no trace

All the things you think and do
Have become a part of you
All your deeds have come to pass
Nothing lasts, nothing lasts

Journey From Eden

length: 6:40
composer: Steve Miller
lyricist: Steve Miller
Listen to the blackbird sadly sing
For you, for me
Look at all the pointless suffering
Humanity

I am dreaming of a garden
And I see the midnight flight
Of a blackbird, through my vision
To the light
To the light

She is standing in the doorway
With the love light in her eye
And she beckons me to journey
Through the night
Through the night

Listen to the blackbird sadly sing
For you, for me
Look at all the pointless suffering
Humanity

To the people, who are naked
As they breathe in amber haze
Wandering endlessly narcotic
Through the maze
Through the maze

To the leaders, who are timeless
As they flaunt their warlike ways
Flying endlessly o'er the wasteland
Seeking praise
Seeking praise

Listen to the blackbird sadly sing
For you, for me
Look at all the pointless suffering
Humanity
