All Wrong But It's Alright 

Cocoa coloured from an island nation
Temporarily on vacation
Gorgeously glowing in the early evening sun

Such a sight such a vision of wonder
My heart is pounding with the force of thunder
Something is happening are you really the one? Oh, well..

It's all wrong but it's alright
It's all wrong but it's alright
It's all wrong but it's alright
It's all wrong but it's alright

I'm an average but able Caucasian
Caught in a slippery situation
Black and white no visible hint of gray

Such a difference in our ages
You're a booklet I'm a thousand pages
What will our families think, what are we going to say? We'll tell 'em

CHORUS

SOLO

CHORUS

It's all wrong but it's alright
It's all wrong but it's alright
Slippin' into darkness, seein' the light
It's all wrong but it's alright

It's all wrong but it's alright
It's all wrong but it's alright

American Cigarettes

She does what he wants he takes what she gets
    She is one of his American Cigarettes

Such a clever little fellow he was
    Papa pounded him...just because
        But Papa didn't notice the game his kid was learning to play

Every morning when he went off to school
    Papa never told him 'bout any rules
        Now he manages his own nasty business his own way

    He says "Come with me sugar you wanna make some money?
        I got the action you got the honey
            Stick with me baby and I'll do anything for you"


CHORUS:      She does what he wants he takes what she gets
                                 She is one of  his American Cigarettes
                                     He keeps her in line she's like all of the rest
                                         In his package of American Cigarettes


Such a pretty little thing she was
    Father fondled her he had a few flaws
        But Mother didn't notice her baby becoming this way oh no!

Every morning when she sent her to school
    Mother told her always to remember the rule
        Never talk to strangers
            You don't know what games they're gonna want you to play

    She says "You're not my Daddy but I guess you will do
        And I'll do anything for you"


CHORUS

BRIDGE:         They're so fresh when they're new
                               But if you keep them too long
                                 They'll dry out and shrivel
                                     So ya burn 'em until the smoke is all gone

SOLO

She does what he wants he takes what she gets
She is one of  his American Cigarettes
She does what he wants he takes what she gets
She is one of  his American Cigarettes

Talk It Over

We're caught in a world of   suspicion
We have been growing too far apart
It's time to make an act of contrition
I don't believe it's too late to start

        We've got to break it down, shake it down
          Take it down to a level we can both understand

                We've got to talk it over
                We've got to talk it over

What has gone wrong in our lives?
Is it lack of communication?
Age old story of husbands and wives
Wallowing in their own self-preservation

        We've got to break it down,  shake it down
        Take it down to a level we can both understand

        We've got to take it up,  shake it up
        Make it up we can't ever let it get out of hand

                We've got to talk it over
                We've got to talk it over
                We've got to talk it over
                We've got to talk it over

SOLO

        We've got to break it down, shake it down
        Take it down to a level we can both understand

        We've got to take it up, shake it up
        Make it up we can't ever let it get out of hand

We've got to talk it over
We've got to talk it over
We've got to talk it over
We've got to talk it over

She'll Pour It On

She'll pour it on ya, she'll lay it on ya
She'll build you up then she'll let you down
She'll say she loves ya, she'll say she needs ya
She'll pour it on ya then she'll screw you around

She'll trick you into feeling that you're really somebody
She'll make your head swirl around and around
She'll pour it on ya, she'll lay it on ya
She'll mess you up then she'll let you down

She'll reduce ya to a little pile of rubble
She'll slice you to pieces drop 'em into the ground
She'll seduce ya, turn your body into a bubble
She'll blow you away then she'll let you drown

CHORUS:         She'll pour it on   She'll pour it on
                            She'll pour it on   She'll pour it on

She's soft on the edges but she's hard in the middle
She's a modern Delilah in and old western town
She's as smooth as a window she's sharp as an arrow
She'll shoot from the hip  drop you into the ground


Her come-on's a dream her intentions' a nightmare
She'll bleed you dry she's the Baskerville Hound
You'll take it and like it go runnin' for seconds
She'll pour it on ya but she'll let you down

I Learned A Lot From You

I learned a lot about love from you
I learned so much if you only knew
Fallin' deep in love must have been a mistake
I'll need strength from above to help me heal this heartache
I learned a lot from you

I gave my body and my soul to you
You led me on how I trusted you
Like a leaf on a stream I got carried away
If this was only a dream I wouldn't need to say
That I learned a lot from you

    And it looks like it'll be stormy weather
    And it looks like I'm gonna have to get it together
    Yes I learned a lot about love from you
    And I'm falling, I'm falling through

        I learned a lot from you..... I never thought I'd lose you
        I learned a lot from you..... what am I, what am I gonna do?

Fallin' deep in love must have been a mistake
I'll need strength from above to help me heal this heartache
I learned a lot from you

And it looks like it'll be stormy weather
And it looks like I will really have to get it together
Yes I learned a lot about love from you
And I'm falling, I'm falling, I'm falling,
I'm falling through

Take Me Home And Tuck Me In (B. Deutscher, Lisa Deutscher)

CHORUS:         Take me home and tuck me in
                            I don't wanna be this cold again
                            Stayin' out this late could be a sin
                            So take me home and tuck me in

Sittin' in this smoky bar don't know why I'm here
But it's warmer than it is outside and I really like this beer
Well I have to go home sometime and I sure could use a friend
So if you're going nowhere take me home and tuck me in

CHORUS

It can get pretty lonely sittin' on this tall bar stool
But I'm tired of weavin' fables like a silly drunken fool
You seem to be my kind of gal you got a sexy grin
So if you're feelin' lucky take me home and tuck me in

CHORUS

Hey there little darlin' I might be disguised
As a rowdy individual but don't be too surprised
You might find a spot of tenderness buried deep within
So if you want to dig it out just take me home and tuck me in

My Love Will Make It Alright

CHORUS:         My love will make it alright, my love will make it alright
                            Through all of your tomorrows, today and every night
                            My love will make it alright, my love will make it alright
                            For better or worse I'm right here by your side

Can a man be a man and confess
That he hasn't been his best
His pride won't let him remember a promise he once made

With his lover right there beside him
Maybe now he should let her guide him
These are trying times and the moment is right
To take a step out from the shade

CHORUS

BRIDGE:       Darling please don't worry now
                         When your troubles are drivin' you mad
                         Let me reassure you now
                         I'm here for you I do love you
                         It can't be all that bad

Right Now

I'm hanging up the phone my baby's all alone
She needs my tender touch and I need her just as much
I'd better get away she needs me right away right now
That's what I heard her say she needs me right away right now

She snaps her fingertips the words are on her lips
She's got me on a string I jump whenever she rings
I'd better get there fast I can't run out of gas right now
It doesn't rain it pours she wants it all and more right now

CHORUS :    Right now right now can't wait any longer
                        Right now right now I've got a hunger
                        Right now right now ain't got no patience
                        I want to know what you are gonna do with these sensations

She keeps me on the run she's got me under the gun
Gotta meet this hot deadline I'm running out of time
Ain't gonna hesitate I'm heading out the gate right now

The Turning Point

They say you gotta get hungry get it while you can
They say don't ever take it easy gotta stick with a plan
But baby I'm tired of all this pressure
And I'm tired of what everybody says
And it's getting to the turning point I feel it every day

You know I remember all the good times and some of the bad
It used to be so easy to give all that I had
But baby I'm tired of living in the past
And dwellin' on the things I could've done
And it's getting to the turning point new battles to be won

CHORUS:         The turning point the turning point
                            Someone get me out of this joint
                            Do you know what it's like to reach the turning point
                            The turning point the turning point
                            I gotta get me out of this joint  
                            I know what it's like to reach the turning point

Now I struggle through these hard times I do the best I can
It's taken all I've got to give  gettin' through to those who just don't give a damn
But like the cream that rises to the top
I'll make it through these troubles day by day
'Cause it's getting to the turning point I'm gonna make it pay

Patience  (B. Deutscher, B. Wallace - as recorded by Crowcuss)

Eleven years in a rock and roll band
With a suitcase in my hand
Will I have to seek another land
To keep on cruisin'

Sometimes I feel like I don't belong
Many friends have come and gone
But your hold on me is oh so strong
And keeps me movin' on, yeah

CHORUS:        I know patience is a virtue
                           How long can I wait
                           Too long a rest can really hurt you
                           Start now before it's too  late
                           Start now before it's too  late

My values change from day to day
I'm not so sure what I mean to say
All I really want to  do is play
And make it feel good

There's such a long long way to go
The pace I move at seems so slow
But with a little more time I know
Man, it's gonna be good

CHORUS

Patience (original version)

Hey I've been working overtime
I'm sweating in a greasy mine
Hoping that someday I might find out
What I'm doing

I pulled a muscle in my hand
My vocal chords are lined with sand
Will I have to seek another land
To swallow what I'm chewing

CHORUS:        I know that patience is a virtue
                           But how long can I wait
                           Too long a rest can really hurt  you
                           Start now before it's too  late
                           Start now before it's too  late

My values change from day to day
I'm not so sure what I mean to say
All I really want to  do is play
And make it feel good

But with a little more time I know
Man, it's gonna be good

29 One-Nighters

Ooh sometimes she gets all upset
When I tell her I've got to get going again for another month or so
She tells me she's worried about all the strain
That usually comes with touring the country
But its in me now and I know I have to go

CHORUS:        Got to go and play 29 one-nighters
                           Got to do it with a smile
                           My manager says I've got a good reputation
                           And I've got to make it all worthwhile

Ooh she goes to her room and she cries
And she wonders why and what good does it do her hours alone pass like years
So I tell her "you know you must have the patience to wait
'Cause after this time oh honey you know that I'll be through
And I just can't stand those tears"

CHORUS   
You know I've got to make it all worthwhile

Oh honey I just don't know what to say
But you know that I have to go away just have to go away
You know I have to go away but I don't wanna go away
'Cause I don't wanna hurt you girl
No I don't wanna leave you
'Cause you mean more than anything else to me in this world

Got to play, gotta gotta get out there and play
Gotta get back on the road and its a heavy, heavy, heavy heavy load
And it's taking me it's really taken me
And there ain't anything else for me to do but go and honey I
Got to play got to play 29 one-nighters (6X)

The Face Of Calgary

Flying through the sky in the stillness of the night
I can see the lights of the city down below burning bright
Here I am again visiting with my old friend
Oh what a welcome sight

I can sense a mood of magic in the air
Gives me such a glow I feel so very rare
Down at Stampede park Uptown after dark
This city has a style it has a flair

Chorus:        With the mountains on her horizon
                        Rolling hills in her back yard
                        She's someone special very dear to me
                        And the more I think about it, it isn't very hard
                        To know and love the face of Calgary

Floating down the Bow in a warm western breeze
Or waiting for the water in Bowness Lagoon to freeze
Whatever the season she doesn't need a reason
She's ready and she's willing to please

And while I'm away I'll hold the memory
Of the skyline and the people that mean so much to me
And I'll be returnin' keep the flame burnin'
For my city in the West called Calgary

CHORUS

BRIDGE:         Oh Calgary you're a friendly face to me
                                 Calgary you're my kind of city

Don't Forget About Me

CHORUS:         Don't forget about me I'll be coming back

                            Don't forget about me while I'm gone away
                            I need you to believe it my love will ricochet

Soon I'll be leaving who knows what lies ahead
I think I'm ready there's just one thing I dread
Will you still love me even though we'll be apart
Will you remember to keep me in your heart

CHORUS

Right back to you I promise to return
I really mean it our flame will always burn
Just think about it I need your faith and trust
Keep on believing I'm doing it for us

CHORUS

Don't forget about me     I'll be coming back
Don't forget about me     I won't ever fade to black

Don't forget about me     I'm doing it for us

I Can't Forget You

You were one in a million and now I know
That I'm regrettin' lettin' you go
Well I made a mistake sayin' goodbye
Now I'm wonderin'  how will I survive because

CHORUS:        I can't forget you I can't even try
                           I can't forget you if I did I would die

There've been so many others but I've been so blind
So undecided I can't make up my mind
What I've been looking for I don't seem to see
Is it out there at all or is it just me because

CHORUS (2x)

I can't forget ya (8X)
I'm doin' what I can but I can't forget ya (8X)

Verse 1

Chorus (2X)

I can't forget you
I can't forget you

I can't forget you
    You were one in a million one in a million
I can't forget you
    Why did I ever let you go 'cause now I know I love you so
I can't forget you
    I can't I can't I can't let go
I can't forget you
I can't forget you

I Know How It Feels To Run

Back in town again looking for a friend steering into the sun
Turning wheels I know how it feels to run

Looking all around for some solid ground waiting for my time to come
Lost in deals I know how it feels to run

        Like a vine growing wild
        I keep on running but I get nowhere
        Need a spot beside the water I can sink my roots there

Just can't find a way to bring myself to stay and backing out isn't fun
Turning wheels I know how it feels to run

Go downtown again hang around again looking for a little fun
Worn-out heels I know how it feels to run

Turning wheels I know how it feels to run

I'm Gonna Get It Right Here

You can get it in North America you can get it in South America
You can get it in Central America you can get it down in South Africa
Some go for it in Japan some go for it in Amsterdam
Pick up the tab in Taiwan gonna pay the price right or wrong

I'm gonna get it right here I'm gonna get it right here
I'm gonna get it I'm gonna get it right here

Do you see it on the horizon in the morning when the sun is risin'
Can you find it up there in the stars
Do you think they've got it on Venus or Mars
Is it love or is it passion is it foolish is it fashion
Is it friendly persuasion is it your destination

I'm gonna get it right here I'm gonna get it right here
I'm gonna get it I'm gonna get it right here (3X)
Do you get it or do you give do you let it languish or live
Gotta let it happen to you gotta see what it can do
Have you looked into your heart might be a good place to start
Gotta dig to the depths of your soul might discover which way to go

I'm gonna get it I'm gonna get it right here (4X)
I'm gonna get it right here (3X)

Song For Joy

To be with you is to sing a song of joy
Your sunshine smile is so very bright everything feels right
It's something like playing with a brand new toy
You wind it up and it runs all day  let the music play
In my fingers in my mind the feeling will unwind
Bursting in a song for joy
Wrapped up in a song for joy

BRIDGE:          There's an ecstasy within my soul
                            I want to share it with you
                            I do care for you
                            I'm really starting to feel whole

What I've been in search of for so many years
Is standing right before my eyes  this is no surprise
In my eyes now I am feeling joyful tears
They signify that I've found the way   let the music play
In my fingers in my mind the feeling will unwind
Bursting in a song for joy
Wrapped up in a song for joy
