I have got my leave. Bid me farewell, my brothers!

I have got my leave. Bid me farewell, my brothers!
I bow to you all and take my departure.
 
Here I give back the keys of my door --
and I give up all claims to my house.
I only ask for last kind words from you.
 
We were neighbours for long,
but I received more than I could give.
Now the day has dawned
and the lamp that lit my dark corner is out.
A summons has come
and I am ready for my journey.
 

I know that the day will come

I know that the day will come
when my sight of this earth shall be lost,
and life will take its leave in silence,
drawing the last curtain over my eyes.
 
Yet stars will watch at night,
and morning rise as before,
and hours heave like sea waves
casting up pleasures and pains.
 
When I think of this end of my moments,
the barrier of the moments breaks
and I see by the light of death
thy world with its careless treasures.
Rare is its lowliest seat,
rare is its meanest of lives.
 
Things that I longed for in vain
and things that I got -- let them pass.
Let me but truly possess the things
that I ever spurned and overlooked.
 

Going-to-the-Sun Road

Due west at a blind day’s end, flying pavement underfoot
Some horizon eyeing me up, often does right at dusk
Often known it wore that look
 
And I’ve known it one too many times
And the thought of flight for water whiter
Now those passing dotted lines
Going on and on just shake my sleep all night
Could be I’m finally losing my fight
 
Due south all the fog aired out, no idea where all this leads
Though I still wanted to show Going-to-the-Sun Road to you
Still got one in me
 
If I want to, I’ll arrive at peace
I know I decide what I remember
If this ever mended me
All the on and on
Just shakes my sleep all night
Now I’m losing my fight
 
A estrada do sol
O começo de tudo
E as nuvens que agora se afastam
Mostrando um caminho que está sempre lá
 
E que é qualquer lado que a gente quiser caminhar
 

O thou the last fulfilment of life

O thou the last fulfilment of life,
Death, my death, come and whisper to me!
Day after day I have kept watch for thee;
for thee have I borne the joys and pangs of life.
 
All that I am, that I have, that I hope
and all my love have ever flowed towards thee
in depth of secrecy.
 
One final glance from thine eyes
and my life will be ever thine own.
 
The flowers have been woven and the garland
is ready for the bridegroom.
After the wedding the bride shall leave her home
and meet her lord alone in the solitude of night.
 

Chasing a Feeling

You used to drown out my crazy
Just by the touch of your hand
We used to stay up forever
Just to make every moment last
So tell me how we got bitter
I’m not trying to steal all your time
And it’s like I’m watching us wither
Wonder if we passed the point of trying
 
I’ve been saying
That I need you, but I don’t know
It’s not your fault we’re changing
Maybe time just got us both
 
Baby, we’ve been chasing a feeling
Maybe it can’t be like before
Would you tell me if it’s over?
’Cause our bed is getting cold, and I
Wonder if I’m better alone
How do you know you know?
How can you seem so sure?
 
You act as if it don’t matter
Or maybe you’re feeling fine
But lately I’m getting tired
Oh so tired of your peace of mind
 
Sometimes I'm saying
I don’t need you, but I don’t know
Is it my fault we’re changing?
Maybe time just got us both
 
Baby, we’ve been chasing a feeling
Maybe it can’t be like before
Would you tell me if it’s over?
’Cause our bed is getting cold, and I
Wonder if I’m better alone
How do you know you know?
How can you seem so sure?
How do you know you know?
How can you seem so sure?
 
But if we broke it off
Will I find myself in a bar
Talking about the one I lost
The one that got away?
My mind will be on you
If you’re out there with somebody new
And I’ll go mad
You always want what you can’t have
 
Baby, we’ve been chasing a feeling
Maybe we can be like before
Would you tell me if it’s over?
’Cause our bed is getting cold
And all this talk of growing old
It makes me scared of the unknown
Still I wonder if I’m better alone
How do you know you know?
How can you seem so sure?`
How do you know?
How can you seem so sure?
 

I am restless

I am restless. I am athirst for far-away things.
My soul goes out in a longing
to touch the skirt of the dim distance.
O Great Beyond, O the keen call of thy flute!
I forget, I ever forget,
that I have no wings to fly,
that I am bound in this spot
evermore.
 
I am eager and wakeful,
I am a stranger in a strange land.
Thy breath comes to me
whispering an impossible hope.
Thy tongue is known to my heart
as its very own.
O Far-to-seek, O the keen call of thy flute!
I forget, I ever forget,
that I know not the way,
that I have not the winged horse.
 
I am listless, I am a wanderer in my heart.
In the sunny haze of the languid hours,
what vast vision of thine takes shape
in the blue of the sky!
O Farthest end, O the keen call of thy flute!
I forget, I ever forget,
that the gates are shut everywhere in the house
where I dwell alone!
 

On the day when death will knock at thy door

On the day when death will knock at thy door,
what wilt thou offer to him?
 
Oh, I will set before my guest the full vessel of my life;
I will never let him go with empty hands.
 
All the sweet vintage of all my autumn days and summer nights,
all the earnings and gleanings of my busy life,
will I place before him at the close of my days
when death will knock at my door.
 

In the morning I cast my net into the sea

In the morning I cast my net into the sea.
I dragged up from the dark abyss things of strange aspect
and strange beauty -- some shone like a smile,
some glistened like tears, and some were flushed
like the cheeks of a bride.
When with the day's burden I went home, my love was sitting
in the garden idly tearing the leaves of a flower.
I hesitated for a moment, and then placed at her feet
all that I had dragged up, and stood silent.
She glanced at them and said, 'What strange things are these?
I know not of what use they are!'
I bowed my head in shame and thought, 'I have not fought
for these, I did not buy them in the market;
they are not fit gifts for her.'
Then the whole night through I flung them
one by one into the street.
In the morning travellers came; they picked them up
and carried them into far countries.
 

Silver Bride

From the misty dreams of nighttime
I sought the clarity of my days
From the shades of longing
Looked for the familiar glow
 
The death of my wife's slayer
Brought no comfort to me
No shape from lonliness
For a dream
 
A queen of gold I made
A silver bride I built
From the northern summer night
From the winter moon
 
Responded not my girl
No beating heart I felt
I bought no sight to the silver lips
No warmth from gold
 
Within my heart a flame of desire
Provoked the power of my will
Forced into a silver shape
A golden queen for me
 
I made our bed under the stars
Cover a plenty, bear skin hide
Stroked the arc of golden cruves
Kissed the lips of silver
 
A queen of gold I made
A silver bride I built
From the northern summer night
From the winter moon
 
Responded not my girl
No beating heart I felt
I bought no sight to the silver lips
No warmth from gold
 
A queen of gold
I MADE HER
A silver bride
I BUILT HER
A queen of gold
NO HEART
A silver bride
NO WARMTH
 

In one salutation to thee, my God

In one salutation to thee, my God,
let all my senses spread out
and touch this world at thy feet.
 
Like a rain-cloud of July
hung low with its burden of unshed showers
let all my mind bend down at thy door
in one salutation to thee.
 
Let all my songs gather together
their diverse strains into a single current
and flow to a sea of silence
in one salutation to thee.
 
Like a flock of homesick cranes
flying night and day back to their mountain nests
let all my life take its voyage to its eternal home
in one salutation to thee.
 

A Tribe with No Mythology

Echoes of theology bent in the arms of giants
Nobles demand the luxury of meaning
But this printing house's ink is only white
And the pages are white too
Marble halls we dwell in – labyrinth we live in
 
The tribe with no mythology
Wall writing catacomb dwellers
In a desperate need
For the luxury of meaning
But this library offers dust and dust only
So how do you turn the pages?
Marble halls we dwell in – labyrinth we live in
 
I once had a dream
I was locked in the complex of
Marble rooms and corridors,
Full of notes and books,
Written in all known languages
Both on walls and floor
And on the books and scrolls
Placed all over the place in all
Humanly possible constellations and ways
Yet the sense was lost
Because all the letters were mixed
After sort of an earthquake or cataclysm
And lived there human-like demon
Who came too close to me one time
Scaring me to death
I grabbed him by the face squeezing it,
Afraid of how fragile he actually is,
And how much pain
I'm causing him, still I mashed his eyeless head
Like a piece of paper and woke up in fevers
 

I boasted among men that I had known you

I boasted among men that I had known you.
They see your pictures in all works of mine.
They come and ask me, 'Who is he?'
I know not how to answer them.
I say, 'Indeed, I cannot tell.'
They blame me and they go away in scorn.
And you sit there smiling.
 
I put my tales of you into lasting songs.
The secret gushes out from my heart.
They come and ask me, 'Tell me all your meanings.'
I know not how to answer them.
I say, 'Ah, who knows what they mean!'
They smile and go away in utter scorn.
And you sit there smiling.
 

Highest Star

Under the vault of heavens
I stood alone, waiting
The blaze of silver shining in my eyes
My hands of gleaming gold
 
The red of iron in my veins
The blue of steel in my bones
The sparkle of blackness of coal in my hair
My chest golden with waved
 
It is my heaven
It has my eyes
It is my space
It has my shape
 
I knew it was my masterwork
I felt the strength of gods
Revised the soaring heights
Let the heavens be aligned
 
I listened with care the place for the moon
Made sure of the tones
Painted through void the route for the sun
Made out the locus of stars
 
I pierced the distant dome
For the lights to seep through
I checked the curves of borders of all
And placed the highest star
 
It is my heaven
It has my eyes
It is my space
It has my shape
 
It worked and sun and danced
It shone and gloved and gleaned
It circled, curved and blazed
It pulsed, burned and waned
 
It flowed from my bones
And bolted from my fingers
And settled on and over me
And made me face my longing
 

Ever in my life have I sought thee with my songs

Ever in my life have I sought thee with my songs.
It was they who led me from door to door,
and with them have I felt about me, searching and touching my world.
 
It was my songs that taught me all the lessons I ever learnt;
they showed me secret paths, they brought before my sight
many a star on the horizon of my heart.
 
They guided me all the day long to the mysteries
of the country of pleasure and pain,
and, at last, to what palace gate have they brought me
in the evening at the end of my journey?
 

Prodigal King

Sisyphean is the engine underneath the floor of the world
Fire seems condemned, to warm us
It serves the prodigal king
Plowing soil
To sough the dust
 
Sisyphean is the engine of our spirits,
Wanderers above the sea of void
Struggling for needless victories
Plowing soil
Soughing dust
 
Sisyphean is the language calling one's departure
Sudden, unexpected or unexplained death
As clearly
Every death is unforeseen, abrupt
And every one of them
Is unexplained
 

Bring It On Home To Me

If you ever change your mind
About leavin', leavin' me behind
Oh, oh, bring it to me
Bring your sweet lovin'

If you ever change your mind
About leavin', leavin' me behind

Bring your sweet lovin'
Bring it on home to me, yeah (yeah) yeah (yeah)
 

Web of Night (English Version)

If I make my cold body continue to run
I can get closer to the eternal dawn.
 
While repeating endless words over and over,
Are we really accomplishing anything?
 
Cling to the screaming night that violently awkens this life
While embracing the future and darkness I don't want anyone to see,
My love falls into my dreams.
 
If you are able to tear away my loneliness,
All you'll see is a me who loathes myself.
 
In exchange for your feelings of desire,
Show me that you can sacrifice something dear to you.
 
My heart is linked with you who bravely touched the summer
Even if our destination is a reality filled with nothing but pain,
My love will burn you.
 
Cling to the screaming night that violently awkens this life
While embracing the future and darkness I don't want anyone to see...
 
My heart is linked with you who bravely touched the summer
I know our destination will be away from a reality filled with nothing but pain,
Oh love, burn my dreams.
 

Lawdy Miss Clawdy

Well lawdy, lawdy, lawdy Miss Clawdy
Well you sure look good to me
But please don't excite me baby
I know it can't be me.
 
Well I give you all my money
Damn you just won't treat me right
You wanna party every morning don't come
Home till late at night.
 
Well lawdy, lawdy, lawdy Miss Clawdy
Well you sure look good to me
But please don't excite me baby
I know it can't be me.
 
Well I'm gonna tell, tell my mama
Just what you've been doing to me
I'm gonna tell everybody you got me down in misery
Well bye, bye, bye, baby
Girl, I won't be comin' no more
Goodbye little darlin' down the road I'll go.
 
Well lawdy, lawdy, lawdy Miss Clawdy
Well, I won't be comin' no more
Bye bye little darlin' down the road I'll go.
 

Serpents (Demo)

It was a close call
Sitting in the back of the room
With a bowl I had thrown at you
And you didn't know
 
Looking at my black eye, I feel safe at times
Certain emblems tell me it's time
 
Serpents in my minds
Looking for your crimes
Everything changes
I don't want mine this time
 
You enjoy sucking on poison
I won't belong to someone other than you
I had thought you would take me
Some place and listened on
 
Serpents in my minds
I am searching for your crimes
Everything changes
In time
 
I was lost in the world, better stay
Yeah, I was looking for my intention
Even though that at the dark I'd say
Can you run? Better run
 
Serpents in my minds
Looking for your crimes
When everything changes
There's no more time
Possibly mine
Nights, days
 
Walking on my street at night
I feel a little safe, a little in fear it's time
Time to embrace
You've got a knife? Well, I've got a gun
 
Serpents in my minds
Looking for your crimes
Everything changes
Looking for my crime
Curse in despair
 
I was lost in the woods
You want me to run, and I climbed instead
Searching for the answers I will never find
But that's okay, I know that I am done this time
 
Serpents in my minds
Trying to fight your crimes
Everything changes
In time
 

Twenty Flight Rock

Well I got a girl with a record machine,
When it comes to rocking she's a queen.
I took her to a dance on a Saturday night,
All alone where I can hold her tight.
She lives on the twenieth floor uptown,
The elevator's broken down.
 
And I walk one flight, two, three flight four,
Five six seven flight, eight flight more.
Up on the twelfth I'm starting to sag?
Fifteenth floor I'm ready to drag?
I get to the top and I'm too tired to rock?
 
Well she called me up on the telephone?
Said come over baby 'cause I'm all alone?
I said baby you're mighty sweet?
But I'm in bed with aching feet?
This went on for a couple of days?
But I couldn't stay away?
 
And I walk one, two flight, three flight four?
Five six seven flight, eight flight more?
Up on the twelfth I'm starting to sag?
Fifteenth floor I'm ready to drag?
I get to the top and I'm too tired to rock?
 
Well I sent to Chicago for repairs?
Till it's fixed I'm using the stairs?
I hope they hurry, before it's too late?
I love my baby too much to wait?
All this climbing is getting me down?
They'll find me hanging over the rail?
 
And I walk one, two flight, three flight four?
Five six seven flight, eight flight more?
Up on the twelfth I'm starting to sag?
Fifteenth floor I'm ready to drag?
I get to the top and I'm too tired to rock?
You know I'm too tired to rock.
Well I got a girl with a record machine,
When it comes to rocking she's a queen.
I took her to a dance on a Saturday night,
All alone where I can hold her tight.
She lives on the twenieth floor uptown,
The elevator's broken down.
 
And I walk one, two flight, three flight four?
Five six seven flight, eight flight more?
Up on the twelfth I'm starting to sag?
Fifteenth floor I'm ready to drag?
I get to the top and I'm too tired to rock.
 

Willie

Travelling twice the speed of sound 
on a jet from east to west,
he was thinkin' about the things gone by,
hopin' he'd stand the test.
 
He was out on a limb,
maybe out of control,
no relief was soon in sight.
'This is it,' he said
with a spinnin' head.
He'd be sleepin' well tonight.
 
'Cause when Willie goes to bat,
there ain't nothing he won't try.
He spends his time lookin' for romance.
With the power in his hand,
he calculates his plan,
gonna make his move and take it for himself.
 
In the land of opportunity,
he was quick to make his mark.
Moving rapidly, he calculates,
the image he had was sharp.
 
He didn't ever look back,
he had proven himself.
The pride of his hometown
was on his own,
what's ahead unknown,
as the boys all gathered round.
 
Because when Willie goes to bat,
there ain't nothin' he won't try.
He spends his time lookin' for romance.
With the power in his hand,
he calculates his plan,
gonna make his move and take it for himself.
 
All his lifetime tryin' to make his play,
never thought it would end that way.
Always runnin' for what he thought was right,
come on, boy, now don't give up the fight.
 
Because when Willie goes to bat,
there ain't nothin' he won't try.
He spends his time lookin' for romance.
With the power in his hand, 
he calculates his plan,
gonna make his move and take it for himself.  
 
Our Willie's on the bat,
there ain't nothin' you won't try.
You spend your time lookin' for romance.
 

Kansas City

I'm going to Kansas City,

With my Kansas City baby and a bottle of Kansas City wine.

You'll Never Know

Looking out the window,
another day flies by.
I thought the sorrow would fade away.
Oh, how I've tried to make-believe
that someday you'll return to me.
 
(Return to me).
Return to me.
(Return to me).
 
The situation a lonely man faces
without the one that has made
his heart race is a pain beyond compare
and I want you to be aware (be aware).
 
(Return to me).
Return to me.
(Return...)
Return, return.
 
You'll never know how much 
you can miss someone.
You'll never know what they mean 
(you'll never know)
until they're gone (gone).
 
You'll never know how much 
you can miss someone.
You'll never know what they mean 
(what they mean)
until they're gone (gone, gone, gone, gone).
 
Compatibility, a rare luxury.
So when it comes along, don't rush to be free.
Take my word or haven't you heard?
Haven't you heard that true love is the goal 
for happiness untold (for happiness)?
 
(Return to me).
Return to me.
(Return...)
 
You'll never know how much 
(you, you, you'll never, never...)
you can miss someone.
You'll never know what they mean 
until they're gone 
(until they're gone, until they're gone, 
until they're gone).
 
Compromise is what you do 
to make it last.
Simplify your love (and you'll see how fast)
and you'll see how fast things change.
 
You'll never know how much 
(no, you'll never know)
you can miss someone.
You'll never know what they mean 
until they're gone.
 
You'll never know how much 
(you'll never, you'll never...)
you can miss someone.
You'll never know what they mean 
(you'll never, you'll never...)  
until they're gone.
 
So do it right, see the light.
Don't let her go 'cause then you know 
she's gone.
 
You'll never know how much 
(you'll never know how much)
(you'll never know how much)
you can miss someone.
You'll never know what they mean 
(you'll never know how much)
until they're gone.
 
You'll never know how much   
you can miss someone.
You'll never know what they mean   
until they're gone.  
(Return...)
You'll never know how much   
(...to, to, to, to, to, to me).  
you can miss someone.
You'll never know what they mean   
until they're gone.  
 

Restless

I can't see my way when shame is covering my eyes.
Carry a flame for me that I might make it;
Faltering forward as the time.
 
I can leave no traces,
or I can move the stars in space
But I can say nothing for the weight of the action that lies like scars upon my face.
 
But I will say for you anything you need to hear
I mean it, I mean it - take the longing from these restless eyes
And keep it for as long as you need it.
I mean it, I mean it - take the longing from me.
 
I won't see you changing should you remember me somehow.
What in the world would make me feel that way when nothing on Earth would make me now?
 
All I ever wanted was something that I have never seen.
And all that I ever offered was something that I have never been
 
But I will play for you any part you need, my love
I mean it, I mean it - take the longing from these restless eyes
And keep it for as long as you need.
I mean it, I meant it - take the longing from me.
 
I can't make things right, baby
But you know that I will try.
Say that I waited from now till forever;
Say that my tongue should never speak;
Say that I stayed here and lay down beside you;
Say that I buried my mouth in your hair.
 

Why

You make me, you take me away.
My heart stops whenever you're around.
Your beauty gives meaning to the world,
but something just tells me take it slow.
 
It's so hard, I just don't know,
should I let go, let myself fall?
It's so easy for you to tell me no.
Why is this so?
 
Why can't I hold you?
Why can't I tell you
I want to be much more than friends?
(Why) can't I let you know?
Why? Tell me why.
 
Believe me, there's no place I'd rather be
(than with you and it's true I love you).
I love you more than anyone,
but can you feel the same?
 
It's so hard, I just don't know,
should I let go, let myself fall?
It's so easy for you to tell me no.
Why is this so?  
 
Why can't I hold you?
Why can't I tell you
I want to be much more than friends?
(Why) can't I let you know?
Why? Tell me why.
(Tell me why).
 
Why can't I hold you?
Why can't I tell you
I know my love will never end?
(Tell me, when) will I let you know?
Why? Tell me (why).
 
It's so hard, I just don't know,
should I let myself fall?
It's so easy for you to tell me no.
Why is this so?    
 
I'll throw a thousand kisses all your way
hoping one will make you stay (with me).
 
(Why can't I) hold you,
(can't I) tell you
I want to be much more than friends?
(Why) can't I let you know?
Why? Tell me why.
 
Why can't I hold you?
Why can't I tell you
I want to be much more than friends?
Why can't I let you know?
Why? Tell me why.
 

However Absurd

Ears twitch, like a dog, breaking eggs in a dish.
Do not mock me when I say this is not a lie.
 
It's funny thing, half serious, with our hands on our ears.
Living dreams with mouths ajar, wide awake, we go to sleep.
 
However absurd, however absurd… It may seem.
However absurd, however absurd… It may seem.
 
Something special between us,
When we made love the game was over.
I couldn't say the words,
Words wouldn't get my feelings through,
So I keep talking to you
 
However absurd, however absurd… It may seem.
However absurd, however absurd… It may seem.
 
Custom made, dinosaurs, too late now, for a change.
Everything is under the sun, but nothing is for keeps
 
However absurd, however absurd… It may seem.
However absurd, however absurd… It may seem.

Champion lover, don't come home tonight, no.
Ugly brother, if you do, don't turn on the light.
Champion lover, you look like you lost the fight, oh.
Ugly brother, you're so ugly, I can't kiss you goodnight.
 
I know a girl. 
 
I said it three times, you still don't understand.
If you look up the word ugly in the dictionary,
right there on the page you'll see a picture of me.
The girlies be bumpin' and bumpin' all around.
All of them say I look like an ugly Bobby Brown.
Every hour, every minute, I meet the girly bunch.
She called me Mr. Ugly Man, she called me Mr. Ugly Man.
 
He is so damn ugly,
he's even ugly on the phone.
They say that beauty's skin deep,
but he's ugly to the bone.
 
Mr. Ugly Man, can't get with it.
Mr. Ugly Man (Shabba)
Mr. Ugly Man (Shabba)
Aye, get away!
Givin' it away
 
I get out the shower, empty baby oil too.
I be so damn greasy like I came from Jiffy Lube.
I chase the girlies all over town. 
I tried to give a kiss, but she would rather drown.
 
She called me Mr. Ugly Man,
she called me Mr. Ugly Man. 
Mr. Ugly man, she called me Mr. Ugly Man.
Mr. Ugly man, she called me Mr. Ugly Man. 
 
Shabba!
 

Angry

What the hell gives you the right to tell me what to do with my life
Especially when you made a mess of every chance you had of success.
Look at you,
Just look at you, I said I'm angry just looking at you.
 
I'm sick and tired of sitting back and listening
To all of your clap-trap.
If you could get me to take the rap I guarantee
You'd leave me with a backslap.
Push me to the left, push me to the right,
Try to take me out of the way.
Even if you kick me off the edge of the world,
You're still going to hear me say
 
What the hell gives you the right to tell me what to do with my life
Especially when you made a mess of every chance you had of success.
Look at you,
Just look at you, I said I'm angry just looking at you.
 
Shouting down again mahama.
Shouting down again.
 
Shouting down again mahama. Shouting down again.
I can't begin to tell you all the reasons
Why you're making me crazy.
I've got so many answers.
Like you're stupid, like you're crooked,
Like you're lazy.
Hit me with your left, hit me with your right,
Hit me from the top to the toe.
Even when you chew me up and spit me out,
I'm still going to want to know.
 
What the hell gives you the right to tell me what to do with my life
Especially when you made a mess of every chance you had of success.
Look at you
Just look at you, I said I'm angry just looking at you.
 
Shouting down again mahama. Shouting down again.
Shouting down again mahama. Shouting down again…
 
What the hell gives you the right?
 

Dirty

[Verse 1]
Is it time to lead or is it time to die?
Time to raise up or walk on by?
Is there anybody out there that's payin' attention?
Yeah, yeah
Is it time to speak up or time for silence?
Time for peace or is it time for violence?
Is there anybody out there that's payin' attention?
Yeah, yeah
 
[Pre-Chorus]
Tell what you tryna hide
And what you're runnin' from inside
'Cause I got a surprise
We might not make it 'til the morning
So go on and tell me now
 
[Chorus]
Do you have enough love in your heart
To go and get your hands dirty?
It isn't not much but it's a good start
So go and get your hands dirty
Do you love your neighbor?
Is it in your nature?
Do you love the sunset?
Aren't you fed up? (Yeah)
Do you have enough love in your heart
To go and get your hands dirty?
 
[Post-Chorus]
Yeah, yeah
To go and get your hands dirty
 
[Verse 2]
I got a skeleton under the floorboard
I got a secret I need you to keep
Runaway, runaway, you have been forewarned
I don't wanna go off in the deep
If we don't do somethin' more, we stuck up in the mud again
Don't wanna mess it up 'cause I want everything and nothing at all
I got a feeling and they walkin' on the ceilin'
If the people need the healin' then [?]
 
[Pre-Chorus]
Tell what you tryna hide
And what you're runnin' from inside
'Cause I got a surprise
We might not make it 'til the morning
So go on and tell me now
 
[Chorus]
Do you have enough love in your heart
To go and get your hands dirty?
It isn't not much but it's a good start
So go and get your hands dirty
Do you love your neighbor?
Is it in your nature?
Do you love the sunset?
Aren't you fed up? (Yeah)
Do you have enough love in your heart
To go and get your hands dirty?
 
[Post-Chorus]
Yeah, yeah
To go and get your hands dirty
 
[Bridge]
Is there anybody out there that's payin' attention?
Is there anybody out there that's payin' attention?
Is there anybody out there that's payin' attention?
Is there anybody out there- (There, there, there, there, there)
So go on and tell me now (Oh)
 
[Chorus]
Do you have enough love in your heart
(Do you have enough love in your heart)
To go and get your hands dirty?
Isn't not much but it's a good start (A good start)
So go and get your hands dirty
Do you love your neighbor?
Is it in your nature?
Do you love the sunset?
Aren't you fed up? (Yeah)
Do you have enough love in your heart
To go and get your hands dirty?
 
[Post-Chorus]
Yeah, yeah
To go and get your hands dirty
 

Move Over Busker

Well, the rest of my life lay in front of me,
I was pedaling down the road,
When I saw Nell Gwynne and her oranges,
And I said I'll have one of those.
She said…Move over busker, don't bang your drum
Move over busker, your time will come.
 
Well, I was hanging around for a miracle,
Struggling with a rhyme,
When I saw Mae West in a sweaty vest,
And I said I'll come up and see you sometime.
She said… Move over busker, that's not my style,
Your chance is coming, in a little while.
 
You've got it coming, come on come on.
You've got it coming, coming to you.
You've got it coming, come on come on.
You've got it coming, coming to you.
 
Well, I've been waiting, but I'm impatient
No-one can hold me back, I want to stay with the action.
But I won't get it, my great illusion
Will vanish anyhow if I don't grab it now.
 
A belly dancer!
 
Well, I was hacking my way through the undergrowth,
Juggling with my pride,
When I saw Errol Flynn in a tiger skin,
And I said, 'You look satisfied!'
Uh, well, he looked down at me from his motor home,
And he gave me a dirty smile.
He said,
'Well, yes, I am, but she's calling me,
Would you excuse us for a while?'
 
Yeah, move over, busker, your day is done,
Move over, busker, my time has come.
 
I'm telling you to
Move over, busker, (come on, come on)
I'll bang my drum. (come on, come on)
Move over, busker, my time has come.
(you've got it coming, coming to you)
 
Ooh, move over, busker, (come on, come on)
Yeah, your day, your day is done. (come on, come)
Move over, busker, my time has come.
(you've got it coming, coming to you)
