Everybody's Talking at Me
Harry Nilsson

Everybody's talking at me.
I don't hear a word they're saying,
Only the echoes of my mind.
People stopping staring,
I can't see their faces,
Only the shadows of their eyes.

I'm going where the sun keeps shining
Thru' the pouring rain,
Going where the weather suits my clothes,
Backing off of the North East wind,
Sailing on summer breeze
And skipping over the ocean like a stone.

I'm going where the sun keeps shining
Thru' the pouring rain,
Going where the weather suits my clothes,
Backing off of the North East wind,
Sailing on summer breeze
And skipping over the ocean like a stone.

 

 

Sunshine Superman
Donovan P. Leitch

Sunshine came softly a-through my a-window today
Could've tripped out easy a-but I've a-changed my ways
It'll take time, I know it but in a while
You're gonna be mine, I know it, we'll do it in style
'Cause I made my mind up you're going to be mine

I'll tell you right now
Any trick in the book a-now, baby, all that I can find

Everybody's hustlin' a-just to have a little scene
When I say we'll be cool, I think that you know what I mean
We stood on a beach at sunset, do you remember when?
I know a beach where, baby, a-it never ends
When you've made your mind up forever to be mine

Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
I'll pick up your hand and slowly blow your little mind
'Cause I made my mind up you're going to be mine
I'll tell you right now
Any trick in the book a-now, baby, that I can find

Superman or Green Lantern ain't got a-nothin' on me
I can make like a turtle and dive for your pearls in the sea, yep
A-you you you can just sit there while thinking on your velvet throne
'Bout all the rainbows a-you can a-have for your own
When you’ve made your mind up, forever to be mine

Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
I’ll pick up your hand and slowly blow your little mind
When you’ve made your mind up, forever to be mine
I’ll pick up your hand, I’ll pick up your hand.

 

 

From The Bottom
"Sonny Boy" Williamson

From the bottom
From the bottom
From the bottom
Oh boys, I'm Hollywood bound

From the bottom
From the bottom
From the bottom
Oh she’s Hollywood bound

She not from the East
She not from the West
I'm so crazy 'bout my baby
I love the way she wears her dress

From the bottom
From the bottom
From the bottom
My baby is Hollywood bound

She's just my color, r
She's just my style,
she's just my style ,
I'm crazy 'bout my baby
My baby is fine fine fine

From the bottom
From the bottom
From the bottom
From the bottom
From the bottom
From the bottom
Oh baby, she Hollywood bound

 

Everybody's Got To Change
Sleepy John Estes

Change in the weather,
Change in the sea,
Come back baby,
You'll find a change in me.

Everybody, they ought to change sometime,
Because sooner or later
We have to go down in that lonesome ground.

I changed suits,
I changed shirts,
I changed, baby,
Just to get shed of the dirt.

Everybody, we ought to change sometime,
Because sooner or later
We're going down in that lonesome ground.

I changed honey,
I changed money,
I changed, people,
Just to keep from being funny.

Everybody, they ought to change sometime,
Because sooner or later
We're going down in that lonesome ground.

Change in the ocean,
Change in the sea,
Come back baby,
You'll find a change in me.

Everybody, we ought to change sometime,
Because sooner or later
We're going down in that lonesome ground

 

Boys of Summer
Don Henley

Nobody on the road
Nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air
The summer's out of reach
Empty lake, empty streets
The sun goes down alone
I'm driving by your house
Though I know you're not home

But I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
You got your hair combed back and your sunglasses on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I never will forget those nights
I wonder if it was a dream
Remember how you made me crazy?
Remember how I made you scream
Now I don't understand what happened to our love
But babe, I'm gonna get you back
I'm gonna show you what I'm made of

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
I see you walking real slow and you're smilin' at everyone
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

Out on the road today, I saw a DEADHEAD sticker on a Cadillac
A little voice inside my head said, "Don't look back. Never look back"
I thought I knew what love was
What did I know?
Those days are gone forever
I should just let them go but-

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
You got that top pulled down and that radio on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
You got that hair slicked back and those sunglasses on, baby
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

 

When A Boy Falls In Love
Sam Cooke and Clinton Levert

I heard them say love
Was a wonderful thing
Something you can't
Hide on a shelf

But to me they no longer
Have to explain
Because I know for myself

He awakens each morning
With a smile on his face
When a boy is in love
And the world to him
Is a beautiful place
When a boy is in love

He's up and he's gone
There's no breakfast for him
Cause he lives on the love
Of his sweet little gem

The day's not through
Though it's not very long
Before he must talk
To his girl on the phone

That's how it is
When a boy falls in love

His girl's voice on the phone
Brings him wondrous delight
When a boy falls in love
If there's been any darkness
It all fades from sight
When a boy is in love
He can hardly wait
Til the moment they meet
For he knows when he sees her
His day will be complete

When they're finally alone
And he kisses her lips
The world sings a love song
And his heart turns a flip

That's how it is
When a boy falls in love

At the end of the day
The time comes, they must part
The strings of regret
Tear away at his heart

And late in the night
As he sleeps on his bed
Visions of her sweet charms
How they dance through his head

And before you know
He's buying a ring
To capture forever
That sweet darling thing

That's how it is
When a boy falls in love
Oh, that's how it is
When a boy falls in love

That's how it is
When a boy falls in love
Oh, that's how it is
When a boy falls in love

 

Funeral Song
W. H. Auden

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message He Is Dead,
Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.

He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last for ever: I was wrong.

The stars are not wanted now: put out every one;
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.
For nothing now can ever come to any good.

 

Goldfinger
Lesley Bricusse, Anthony Newley and John Barry

Goldfinger, he's the man, the man with the Midas touch
A spider's touch
Such a cold finger beckons you to enter his web of sin
But don't go in

Golden words he will pour in your ear
But his lies can't disguise what you fear
For a golden girl knows when he's kissed her
It's the kiss of death from Mister

Goldfinger, pretty girl, beware of this heart of gold
This heart is cold

Golden words he will pour in your ear
But his lies can't disguise what you fear
For a golden girl knows when he's kissed her
It's the kiss of death from Mister

Goldfinger, pretty girl, beware of this heart of gold
This heart is cold
He loves only gold
Only gold
He loves gold
He loves only gold
Only gold
He loves gold!!!!!!

 

Surfing USA
Brian Wilson

If everybody had an ocean
Across the U.S.A.
Then everybody be surfing
Like California

You'd see 'em wearin' their baggies
Huarache sandals, too
A bushy, bushy blond hairdo
Surfin' U.S.A.

You'd catch 'em surfin'
at Del Mar Ventura County Line
Santa Cruz and Tressels
Australia's Narabine

All over Manhattan
And down Doheny Way
Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin' U.S.A.

We'll all be planning out a route
We're gonna take real soon
We're standin' down on surfboards
We can't wait for June

We'll all be gone for the summer
We're on safari to stay
Tell the teacher we're surfin'
Surfin' U.S.A.

At Haggerty's and Swami's
Pacific Palisades
San Onofre and Sunset
Redondo Beach L.A.
All over La Jolla
And Waimea Bay
Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin' U.S.A.
Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin' U.S.A.
Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin' U.S.A.
