A DAY AT THE RACES

"Надеюсь, что в какой-то степени мы увязали
"A Day At The Races" c предыдущим альбомом,
потому что материал для них писался почти
одновременно, и они соответствуют примерно
одному периоду нашего развития. Я считаю,
что эти альбомы совершенно параллельны".

Tie Your Mother Down
("Sheer bloody poetry" The Times)


Get your party gown
Get your pigtail down
Get your heart beatin' baby
Got my timin' right
Got my act all tight
It's gotta be tonight my little
Schoolbabe
Your mamma says you don't
And your daddy says you won't
And I'm boilin' up inside
Ain't no way I'm gonna lose out this time
Tie your mother down
Tie your mother down
Lock your daddy out of doors
I don't need him nosin' around
Tie your mother down
Tie your mother down
Give me all your love tonight
You're such a dirty louse
Go get outta my house
That's all I ever got from your
Family ties, in fact I don't think I ever heard
A single little civil word from those guys
But you know I don't give a light
I'm gonna make out all right
I've got a sweet heart band
To put a stop to all that
Grousin' an' shipin'
Tie your mother down -
Tie your mother down -
Take your little brother swimmin'
Tie your mother down,
Tie your mother down
Or you ain't no friend of mine
Your mamma and your Daddy gonna
Plague me till I die
Why can't the understand I'm just a
Peace lovin' guy
Tie your mother down
Tie your mother down... etc etc ...
You Take My Breath Away     [назад]

Look into my eyes and you'll see
I'm the only one
You've captured my love
Stolen my heart
Changed my life
Everytime you make a move
You destroy my mind
And the way you touch
I lose control and shiver deep inside
You take my breath away.
You can reduce me to tears
With a single sigh
Every breath that you take -
Any sound that you make
Is a whisper in my ear
I could give up all my life for just one kiss
I would surely die
If you dismiss me from your love
You take my breath away
So please don't go
Don't leave me here all by myself
I get ever so lonely from time to time
I will find you
Anywhere you go, I'll be right behind you
Right until the ends of the earth
I'll get no sleep till I find you to tell you
That you just take my breath away.
I will find you
Anywhere you go, I'll be right behind you
Right until the ends of the earth
I'll get no sleep till I find you to
tell when I've found you -
I love you.
Long Away

You might believe in heaven
I would no care to say
For every star in heaven
There's a sad soul here today
Wake up in the morning with a good face
Stare at the moon all day
Lonely as a whisper on a star chase
Does anyone care anyway
For all the prayers in heaven
So much of life this way
Did me leave our way behind us
such a long away behind us
Who knows when, now who knows where
Where the light of day will find us?
Look for the day
Take heart my friend, we love you
Though it seems like you're alone
I million lights above you
Smile down upon your home
Hurry put your troubles in a suitcase
Come let the new child play
Lonely as a whisper on a star chase
I'm a leaving here, I'm long away
For all the stars in heaven
I would not live
I could not live this way
Did me leave our way behind us
such a long away behind us
Leave it for some hopeless lane
Such a long long way
Such a long long way
Such a long long away
I'm looking for
Still looking for that day
The Millionaire Waltz     [назад]

Bring out the charge of the love brigade
There is spring in the air once again
Drink to the sound of the song parade
There is music and love everywhere
Give a little love to me
Take a little love from me, I want to share it with you
I feel like a millionaire.
Once we were mad, we were happy
We spent all our days holding hands together
Do you remember, my love
How we danced and played
In the rain we laid
Could stay there, forever and ever
Now I'm sad
You are so far away
I sit countong the hours day by day
Come back to me, how I long for your love
Come back to me - be happy like we used to be
Come back to me, oh my love
How I long for your love - won't you come back to me, yeah,
My fine friend - take me with you and love me forever
My fine frienh - forever - ever
Bring out the charge of the love brigade
There is spring in the air once again
Drink to the sound of the song parade
There is music and love everywhere
Give a little love to me
Take a little love from me, I want to share it with you
Come back, come back to me make me feel -
Like a millionaire.
You And I

Music is playing in the darcness
And a lantern goes swinging by
Shadows flickering
My heart,s jittering
Just you and I
Not tonight
Come tomorrow
When everything's sunny and bright
No No No
Come tomorrow
Cos then we'll be waiting for the moonlight
We'll go walking in the moonlight
Walking in the moonlight
Laughter ringing in the darkness
People drinking for days gone by
Time don't mean a thing
When you're by my side
Please stay a while
You know I never could foresee the future years
You know I never could see where life was leading me
But will we be together for ever,
What will be my love,

Сan't you see that I just don't know
No No not tonight
Come tomorrow
When everything's gonna be alright
Wait and see
If tomorrow
We'll be as happy as we're feeling tonight
We'll go walking in the moonlight
Walking in the moonlight
I can hear the music in the darkness
Floating softly to where to lie
No more questions now
Let's enjoy tonight
Just you and I
Somebody To Love     [назад]

Can anybody find me somebody to love
Each mornung I get up I die a little
Can barely stand on my feet
Take a look in the mirror and cry
Lord what you're doing to me
I have spent all my years in believing you
But I just can't get no relief, Lord!
Somebody, somebody
Can anybody find me somebody to love?
I work hard every day of my life
I work till I ache bones
At the end I take home my hard earned pay all on my own -
I get down on my knees
And I start to pray
Till the tears run down from my eyes
Lord  - somebody - somebody
Can anybody find me - somebody to love?
( He works hard )
Everyday - I try and I try and I try -
But everybody wants to put me down,
They say I'm goin' crazy
They say I got a lot of water in my brain
Get no common sense
I got nobody left to believe
Yeah - yeah yeah yeah
Oh Lord
Somebody - somebody
Can anybody find me somebody to love?
Got no feel, I got no rhythm
I just keep losing my beat
I'm ok, I'm alright
Ain't gonna face no defeat
I just gotta get out of this prison cell
Somebody I'm gonna be free, Lord!
Find me somebody to love
Can anybody find me somebody to love?
Can
White Man

I'm a simple man
With a simple name
From this soil my people came
In this soil remain
Oh yeah...
And we made us our shoes
And we trod soft on the land
But the immigrant built roads
On our blood and send
Oh yeah...
White man, white man
Don't you see the light behind your blackened skies
You took away sight to blind my simple eyes
White man, white man
Where you gonna hide from the hell you've made?
Oh the red man knows war
With his hands and his knives
On the Bible you swore
Fought your battle with lies
Oh yeah...
Leave my body in shame
Leave my soul in disgrace
But by every God's name
Say your prayers for your race
White man, white man
Our country was a green and all our rivers wide
White man, white man
You came with a gun and soon our children died
White man, white man
Don't you give a light for the blood you've shed?
What is left of your dream?
Just the words on your stone
A man who learned how to teach
Then forget how to learn.
Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy     [назад]

I can dim the lights and sing you songs full of sad things
We can do the tango just for two
I can serenade and gently play on your heart strings
Be your Valentino just for you
Ooh love - Ooh loverboy
What're doin' tonight, hey boy -
Set my alarm, turn on my charm
That's because I'm a good old fashioned loverboy
Ooh let me feel your heartbeat (grow faster, faster)
Ooh Ooh let me feel your love heat
Come on and sit on my hot-seat of love
And tell me how do you feel right after-all I'd like
   for you and I to go romancing.
Say the word - your wish is my command
Ooh love, Ooh loverboy
What're doin' tonight, hey boy -
Write my letter
Feel much better
I'll use my fancy patter on the telephone
When I'm not with you
I think of you always
I miss you -
(I miss those long hot summer nights)
When I'm not with you
Think of me always
I love you - Love you
Hey boy where do you get it from
Hey boy where did you go?
I learned my passion in the good old fashioned school of loverboys.
Dining at the Ritz we'll meet at nine precisely
I will pay the bill, you taste the wine
Driving back in style in my saloon will you do quite nicely
Just take me back to yours that will be fine (Come on and get it)
Ooh love - Ooh loverboy
What're doin' tonight, hey boy -
Everything's all right
Just hold on tight
That's because I'm a good old fashioned loverboy.
Drowse

It's the sad-eyed, goodbye, yesterday moments I remember.
It's the bleak street, week-kneed partings I recall.
It's the mistier mist
The hazier days
The brighter sun
And the easier lays
There's all the more reason for laughing and crying
When you're younger and life isn't too hard at all.
It's the fantastic drowse of the afternoon Sundays
That bored you to rages of tears
The unending pleadings, to waste all uour good times
In thoughts ~of your middle aged years
It's a vertical hold, all the things that you're told
For the everyday hero it all turns to zero.
And there's all the more reason for living or dying
When you're young and your troubles are all very small.
Out here on the street
We'd gather and meet
And scuff up the sidewalk with endlessly restless feet
Half of the time
We'd broaden our minds
More in the poolhall than we did in schoolhall
With the downtown chewing-gum bums
Watching the nightlife, the lights and the fun.
Never wanted to be the boy hext door,
Always thought I'd be something more,
But it ain't easy for a downtown boy,
It ain't easy at all,
Thinkin' it right, doin' it wrong
It's easier from an armchair,
Waves of alternatives wash at my sleepiness,
Have my eggs poached for breakfest I guess.
Teo Torriatte  (Let Us Cling Together)     [назад]

When I'm gone
Don't sleep to wonder if I ever think of you
The same moon shines
The same wind blows
For both of us, and time is but a paper moon...
be not gone
Though I'm gone
It's just at though I hold the flower that touches you
A new life grows
The blossom knows
There's no one else could warm my heart as much as you... be not gone
Let us cling together as the years go by
Oh my love, my love
In the quiet of the night
Let our candle always burn
Let us never lose the lessons we have learned
Teo Torriatte kohomama iko
Aisuruhito yo
Shizukana yoi ni
Hikario tomoshi
Itoshiki oshieo idaki
Hear my song
Still think of me the way you've come to think of me
The nights grow long
But dreams live on
Just close your pretty eyes and you can be with me...
dream on
When I'm gone
They'd say we're all fools and we don't understand
Oh be strong
Don't turn your heart
You're all
We're all
For all
For always...
