Basin Street Blue

Won’t you come along with me?
To the Mississippi.
We’ll take a boat to the land of dreams
And steam down the river, down in New Orleans.

You know the band’s there to meet us,
Old friends to greet us,
Where all the people always meet,
Way down yonder, down in Basin Street.

Oh, Basin Street is the street
Where all good friends always meet.
In New Orleans, the land of dreams,
You’ll never know how nice it seems,
Or just how much it really means.
Glad to be, yes siree,
Where welcome’s free and dear to me,
Where I can lose my Basin Street blues. X2

Where welcome’s free and dear to me,
Where I can lose my Basin Street blues.
Lose my Basin Street blues.
Yeah!

La Bamba

Para bailar la Bamba
Para bailar la Bamba
Se necesita un’ poca de gracia
Una poca de gracia
Para mi para y ariba y ariba.
Y ariba y ariba
Por ti seré,
Por ti seré, seré!

Yo no soy marinero
Yo no soy marinero.
Soy capitan,
Yo no soy marinero,
Soy capitan.

Bamba, bamba,
Bamba, bamba,
Bamba, bamba,
Bamba, bam!

Para bailar la Bamba….

Yo no soy marinero….

Bamba, bamba,
Bamba, bamba,
Bamba, bamba,
Bamba, bam!

Ah, la Bamba!

Eye of The Tiger

Rising up, back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance now I’m back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive

So many times it happens too fast
You trade your passion for glory
Don’t lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive

It’s the eye of the tiger, it’s the thrill of the fight
Risin’ up to the challenge of our rivals
And as the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
And he’s watchin’ us all with the eye of the tiger

Risin’ up, straight to the top
Had the guts, got the glory
Went the distance now I’m not gonna stop
Just a man and his will to survive

It’s the eye of the tiger, it’s the thrill of the fight
Risin’ up to the challenge of our rivals
And as the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
And he’s watchin’ us all with the eye of the tiger

How Far I’ll Go: Moana

I’ve been staring at the edge of the water,
Long as I can remember,
Never really knowing why.
I wish I could be the perfect daughter,
But I come back to the water,
No matter how hard I try.
Ev’ry turn I take, ev’ry trail I track,
Ev’ry path I make, ev’ry road leads back
To the place I know where I cannot go,
Where I long to be.

See the line where the sky meets the sea?
It calls me.
And no one knows
How far it goes.
If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me,
One day I’ll know,
If I go there’s just no telling how far I’ll go.

I know ev’rybody on this island
Seems so happy on this island.
Ev’rything is by design.

I know ev’rybody on this island
Has a role on this island
So maybe I can roll with mine.
I can lead with pride,
I can make us strong.
I’ll be satisfied if I play along
But the voice inside sings a diff’rent song
What is wrong with me?
See the light as it shines on the sea:
It’s blinding,
But no one knows
How deep it goes.
And it seems like it’s calling out to me,
So come find me.
And let me know
What’s beyond that line, will I cross that line?

The line where the sky meets the sea,
It calls me.
And no one knows
How far it goes.
If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me,
One day I’ll know
How far I’ll go!

One Moment: One People

If you are locked out I will bring the key.
If you are lonely come and stand by me.

Cos the room keeps getting brighter as you shine a light.
and the world keeps getting kinder with you by my side.

This is one moment,
(This is) one people,
(This is) one lifetime,
(This is) one song. (x2)

If you feel diff’rent we will take your hand.
If you feel frightened come and join the band.

Cos the room keeps getting brighter as we shine a light,
and the world keeps getting kinder singing out side by side.

This is one moment,
(This is) one people,
(This is) one lifetime,
(This is) one song. (x2)

Every heartbeat drums together and fills up with pride
and we’re growing strong together, singing out side by side.

This is one moment,
(This is) one people,
(This is) one lifetime,
(This is) one song.

This is one moment, (Cos the room keeps getting brighter as you shine a light,)
(This is) one people,
(This is) one lifetime, (and the world keeps getting kinder with you by my side.)
(This is) one song (x 2)

The room keeps getting brighter as you shine a light,
and the world keeps getting kinder with you by my side.

We Will Rock You!

Buddy you’re a boy, make a big noise playing in the street,
gonna be a big man some day.
You got mud on your face, you big disgrace,
kicking your can all over the place,
singing

We will, we will rock you!
We will, we will rock you!

Buddy you’re a young man, hard man,
shouting in the street, gonna take on the world some day.
You got blood on your face, you big disgrace,
waving your banner all over the place.

We will, we will rock you.
We will, we will rock you.

Buddy you’re an old man, poor man,
pleading with your eyes, gonna make you some peace some day.
You got mud on your face, big disgrace,

We Are The Champions

I’ve paid my dues,
Time after time.
I’ve done my sentence
But committed no crime.
And bad mistakes,
I’ve made a few.
I’ve had my share of sand kicked in my face
But I’ve come through.
And I need to go on and on and on and on.

We are the champions my friends.
And we‘ll keep on fighting till the end.
We are the champions,
We are the champions.
(Part one) No time for losers, ‘cause
(Part two) Ooh
(All) We are the champions
Of the world.

I’ve taken my bows,
And my curtain calls.
You brought me fame and fortune and ev’rything that goes with it,
I thank you all.
But it’s been no bed of roses,
No pleasure cruise.
I consider it a challenge before the whole human race and I ain’t gonna lose.
And I need to go on and on and on and on.

We are the champions my friends.
And we‘ll keep on fighting till the end.
We are the champions,
We are the champions.
(Part one) No time for losers, ‘cause
(Part two) Ooh
(All) We are the champions
Of the (Part one) World.
(Part two) We are the champions my friends.
(All) And we‘ll keep on fighting till the end.
We are the champions,
We are the champions.
(Part one) No time for losers, ‘cause
(Part two) Ooh
(All) We are the champions.

Touch The Sky [Lyrics]

Touch the Sky
When the cold wind is a’calling
And the sky is clear and bright
Misty mountains sing and beckon
Lead me out into the light

I will ride, I will fly
Chase the wind and touch the sky I will fly
Chase the wind and touch the sky
(Na na na na x2)
La na na na
Na na na)
(La na na na
La na na na
La na na na
Na na na)

Where dark roots hide secrets
And mountains are fierce and bold
Deep waters hold reflections
Of times lost long ago

I will read every story
Take hold of my own dream
Be as strong as the seas are stormy
And proud as an eagle’s scream

I will ride, I will fly
Chase the wind and touch the sky I will fly
Chase the wind and touch the sky
(Na na na na x2)
La na na na
Na na na)

And touch the sky
Chase the wind
Chase the wind
Touch the sky

The Music's Always There [Lyrics]

THE MUSIC’S ALWAYS THERE WITH YOU

Ev’ry morning will soon turn into evening
And springtime will soon turn into fall;

Ev’ry mem’ry must fade…like a passing parade
And youth become a time you just recall.

But the good times together seem so magical;
Like music that lasts your whole life through;

When it’s ended, it never really dies away…

‘Cause the music’s always there with you.

Ev’ry new day could be a time of harmony
If people could only be in tune:

All the visions you could share,
Magic castles in the air

Seem to fade away and vanish all too soon.

But the magic you share when you make music
Won’t leave you when the time has come to part;

And it feels like you never have to say goodbye (Mmmm…)

‘Cause the music’s always there…in your heart.

Aaaah
Aaaah
Aaaah
Aaaah
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah

But the magic you share when you make music
Won’t leave you when the time has come to part:

And it feels like you never have to say goodbye, (Mmmm…)

‘Cause the music’s always there…

‘Cause the music’s always there…
The music’s always there…in your heart!

Moon Medley [Lyrics]

Something has changed within me.
Something is not the same.
I’m tired of playing by
The rules of someone else’s game.

Too late for second guessing.
Too late to go back to sleep.
It’s time to trust my instincts,
Close my eyes and leap.

It’s time to try…defy-…ing gravity.
I think I’ll try…defy-…ing gravity,
And you can’t pull me down.

Giant steps are what you take,
Walking on the moon.
I hope my legs don’t break,
Walking on the moon.
We could walk forever,
Walking on the moon.
We could live together,
Walking on, walking on the moon.

Walking back from your house,
Walking on the moon.
Walking back from your house,
Walking on the moon.
Feet, they hardly touch the ground,
Walking on the moon.
Feet, they hardly make no sound,
Walking on, walking on the moon.

The moon and you appear to be
So near and yet so far from me,
And here I am…on a night in June…
Reaching for the moon…and you.

I wonder if we’ll ever meet.
My song of love is incomplete.
I’m just the words… looking for the tune,…
Reaching for the moon…and you.

Blue moon,
Say it’s only a paper moon
You saw me standing alone
Sailing over a cardboard sea,
Without a dream in my heart,
But it wouldn’t be make-believe
Without a love,
If you believed in me!
A love all of my own

Fly me to the moon and let me play among the stars,
Let me see what spring is like on Jupiter and Mars.
In other words, please be true,
In other words, I love you.

‘Cause you’re a sky, ‘cause you’re a sky full of stars.
I’m gonna give you my heart.
‘Cause you’re a sky, ‘cause you’re a sky full of stars.
‘Cause you light up the path
I don’t care, go on and tear me apart.
I don’t care if you do…oo-oo-oooh….oo-ooh!
‘Cause in a sky, ‘cause in a sky full of stars,
I think I saw you. Oo-oo[Repeat verse]

She packed my bags last night pre-flight,
I believe I can fly!
Zero hour,
I believe I can touch the sky,
Nine A.M.,
I think about it every night and day,
And I’m gonna be high-igh-igh
Spread my wings and fly away.
As a kite by then.

I miss the earth so much, I miss my wife.
I believe I can so-ar!
It’s lonely out in space
On such a ti-i-imeless flight.

I believe I can fly-y-y-y!
And I think it’s gonna be a long, long time,
‘Til touch-down brings me round again to find
I’m not the man they

I’m not the man they
think I am at ho-ome

think I am at home,
oh no, no, no!
I’m a rocket man!
Rocket ma-an!
Rocket man, burning out his fuse up here alone.
Rocket ma-an!
Rocket man, burning out his fuse up here alone.

I believe I can fly
All alone,
far from home.
I believe I can touch the sky.

All alone,
Far from home.

Unlimited…my future is…unlimited.
And I’ve just had a vision almost like a prophecy…I know
It sounds truly crazy, and true the vision’s hazy,
But I swear someday I’ll be…

….Up in the sky, defying gravity.
Flying so-o high, defying gravity,
And soon I’ll match them in renown.
And no-bo-dy in all of Oz,
No wizard that there is or was,
Is ever gonna bring…me-e down!..
Oo-woh!

Matchstalk Men [Lyrics]

He painted Salford’s smoky tops
On cardboard boxes from the shops,
And parts of Ancoats where I used to play.
I’m sure he once walked down our street
‘Cause he painted kids who had nowt on their feet;
The clothes they wore had all seen better days.

Now they said his works of art were dull –
“No room, old lad – the walls are full!”
But Lowry didn’t care much anyway.
They said, “He just paints cats and dogs
“And matchstalk men in boots and clogs!”
And Lowry said, “That’s just the way they’ll stay.”

And he painted matchstalk men
and matchstalk cats and dogs.
He painted kids on the corner of the street
that were sparking clogs.
Now he takes his brush and he waits…
outside them fact’ry gates
To paint his matchstalk men
and matchstalk cats and dogs.

Now canvas and brushes were wearing thin
When London started calling him
To come on down and wear the old flat cap.
They said, “Tell us all about your ways
“And all about them Salford days!
“Is it true you’re just an ordinary chap?!”
And he painted…

Now Lowry’s hang upon the wall
Beside the greatest of them all;
And even the Mona Lisa takes a bow!
This tired old man with hair like snow
Told northern folk, “It’s time to go!”
The fever came and the good Lord mopped his brow.

1.And he left us matchstalk men & matchstalk cats & dog
2.The good ship sails on the alley-alley-o, on the alley-alley-o!
1.He left us kids on the corner of the street that were sparking clogs.
2. The good ship sails on the alley-alley-o, on the alley-alley-o!
1.Now he takes his brush and he waits outside them pearly gates
2. The good ship sails on the alley-alley-o, on the alley-alley-o!
1.To paint his matchstalk men & matchstalk cats & dogs.
2. The good ship sails on the alley-alley-o, on the alley-alley-

To paint his matchstalk men & matchstalk cats & dogs.
