That Old American Dream

Albert Hammond - Mike Hazlewood

© April Music, ASCAP

She heard the word of the Lord but she took the devil's hand
He led her up a one-way street
She got married very young tried a mortgage round her neck
Had a fam'ly underneath her feet
She believed in that old American dream
She believed in that old American dream

She watches ads that pass the hours on her color TV set
She'll fall for each exaggerated line
She'll look thirty when she's forty if she takes a little trouble
But she'll always say she's twenty-nine
She believed in that old American dream
She believed in that old American dream

She'll die all alone yes she'll die in a private room oh yes she will
Don't cry dear children don't cry she did it for you

She heard the word of the Lord but she took the devil's hand
And the devil took her for his wife
He sold her heaven on earth at a discount rate
She paid it for the rest of her life
She believed in that old American dream
She believed in that old American dream

She believed in that old American dream
She believed in that old American dream

You're My Home

Billy Joel

© Blackwood Music, BMI

When you look into my eyes
And you see the crazy gypsy in my soul
It always comes as a surprise
When I feel my withered roots begin to grow

Well I never had a place that I could call my very own
But that's all right my love cause you're my home

When you touch my weary head
And you tell me everything will be all right
You say use my body for your bed
And my love will keep you warm throughout the night

Well I'll never be a stranger and I'll never be alone
Wherever we're together that's my home

Home could be the Pennsylvania turnpike
Indiana in the early morning dew
High up in the hills of California
Home is just another word for you

If I travel all my life
And I never get to stop and settle down
Long as I have you by my side
There's a roof above and cold good walls around

You're my castle you're my cabin and my instant pleasure dome
I need you in my house cause you're my home
You're my home

I Got A Name

Norman Gimbel - Charlie Fox

© Fox Fanfare Music, BMI

Like the pine trees lining the winding road
I got a name I got a name
Like the singing bird and the croaking toad
I got a name I got a name

And I carry it with me like my daddy did
But I'm living the dream that he kept hid

Moving me down the highway
Rolling me down the highway
Moving ahead so life won't pass me by

Like the north wind whistling down the sky
I got a song I got a song
Like the whippoorwill and the baby's cry
I got a song I got a song

And I carry it with me and I sing it loud
If it gets me nowhere I go there proud

Moving me down the highway...

Like the fool I am and I'll always be
I got a dream I got a dream
They can change their minds but they can't change me
I got a dream I got a dream

Oh I know I could share it if you want me to
If you're going my way I'll go with you

Moving me down the highway...

Keep On Singing

Bobby Hart - Danny Janssen

© Pocket Full Of Tunes, BMI

(Keep on singing don't stop singing
You're gonna be a star someday
You're gonna make a lot of people happy
When they come to hear you play)

I don't remember mama she died when I was born
We lived in a one room shanty but daddy tried to make it a home
When I was only six years old I started singing in the streets
People would throw me pennies so I could help daddy make ends meet

They said keep on singing don't stop singing
You're gonna be a star someday
You're gonna make a lot of people happy
When they come to hear you play
They said keep on singing keep the bells a ringing
Spread the music from town to town
There's not enough love in this old world so spread your song around

By the time that I was ten years old I had a little rock'n roll band
Daddy's eyes were growing dim but I didn't understand
He would be so proud of me each time he'd hear us play
At night he'd call me to his side and daddy would always say

He'd say keep on singing don't stop singing...

He didn't have much money but things didn't seem so bad
I felt just like the queen of the world when I was with my dad
Then one rainy April night daddy called me to his side
He held me there with his trembling hands right before he died

He said keep on singing don't stop singing...
He said keep on singing don't stop singing...

You And Me Against The World

Paul Williams - Kenny Ascher

© Sunset Squid Music, ASCAP

(Tell me again mommy)

You and me against the world
Sometimes it feels like you and me against the world
When all the others turn their backs and walk away
You can count on me to stay

Remember when the circus came to town
And you were frightened by the clown
Wasn't it nice to be around someone that you knew
Someone who was big and strong and looking out for you

And me against the world
Sometimes it feels like you and me against the world
And for all the times we've cried
I always felt that God was on our side

And when one of us is gone
And one of us is left to carry on
Then remembering will have to do
Our memories alone will get us through
Think about the days of me and you
You and me against the world

And when one of us is gone...

(I love you mommy)
I love you too baby

Pretty Pretty

Hal Hackady - Peter Allen

© New York Times Music, BMI

Pretty pretty sittin' pretty underneath a Mick Jagger poster
Writing down your number on a coaster at your favorite bar
Friday Saturday star

Pretty pretty waiting pretty as you sit and nurse a diet cola
Dressed to kill and dinin' from a bowl of peanuts stale from the jar
Bracelets hiding the scar

Twinkle twinkle weekend star
How you wonder who you are
Down below the world so high
Like a rhinestone in the sky oh my

Pretty pretty sellin' pretty ribbons in a five and ten cent palace
Wonderland has room for one more Alice maybe it could be you
Girl you're long overdo

Pretty pretty with your Kitty wondering when you're comin' home to feed her
While you wait and pray that you won't need her won't need kitty tonight
Dopey sprung for Snow White

Twinkle twinkle weekend star if I told you who you are
You would say that isn't true that's some other girl
Not you not you

Pretty pretty no self pity as you look for weekends lost forever
All the Friday nights that you will never nurse a cola again
Who remembers you when

Pretty pretty sleepin' pretty in your eighty dollar five flight walk up
Dreamin' of the names you used to chalk up on your bulletin board
No more chalk on the cord

Twinkle twinkle weekend star
Shut the door and use the bar
Bolt the window pull the shade
Cinderella's got it made

Love Song For Jeffrey

Peter Allen - Helen Reddy

© Music Of The Tunes, ASCAP

And do I love you well I know I really try
Thinking of you lovin' the sunshine in your eyes
And when I falter bringing you grief
Does it alter your feeling for me
Oh baby can't you see

That we're sharing all the ups we have in life
While comparing all the downs that we've survived
But how much stronger our love becomes
And the longer we're living as one
The more we'll overcome

And I have lived the greatest love song
That my singer's years have ever heard
You make this weary woman happy
I overflow it's cause I know

You wouldn't trade me for the moon inside a jar
Cause you've made me both the moon and the stars
And in our twilight we will recall
That the highlight for us in this world
Was having dreams come true
I'm so comfortable with you
Jeff you've made my dreams come true
Here's a love song just for you

Stella By Starlight

Ned Washington - Victor Young

© Famous Music, ASCAP

The song a robin sings
Through years of endless springs
The murmur of a brook at eventide
That ripples by a nook where two lovers hide

A great symphonic theme
That's Stella by starlight and not a dream
My heart and I agree
She's everything on earth to me
[ violin ]
A great symphonic theme...
