The Easybeats – Friday on my mind.

The perfect song for a Friday!  Been a busy week for this little razorback, but catching up with my writing now.  Enjoy this song by the Aussie band, the Easybeats – Australia’s answer to the Beatles.

Enjoy your Friday!!!

Monday morning feels so bad
Everybody seems to nag me
Comin’ Tuesday I’ll feel better
Even my old man looks good
Wednesday just won’t go
Thursday goes too slow
I’ve got Friday on my mind

I’m gonna have fun in my city
I’ll be with my girl, she’s so pretty
She looks fine tonight
She is out of sight to me

Tonight, I’ll spend my bread
Tonight, I’ll lose my head
Tonight, I’ve got to get tonight
Monday, I have Friday on my mind

Do the five day drag once more
No one, nothing else that bugs me
More than workin’ for the rich man
Hey, I’ll change that scene one day

Today I might be mad
Tomorrow I’ll be glad
‘Cause I’ve got Friday on my mind

I’m gonna have fun in my city
I’ll be with my girl, she’s so pretty
She looks fine tonight
She is out of sight to me

Tonight, I’ll paint my friend
Tonight, I’ll lose my head
Tonight, I’ve got to get tonight
Monday, I have Friday on my mind

I’m gonna have fun in my city
I’ll be with my girl, she’s so pretty
I’m gonna have fun in my city
I’ll be with my girl, she’s so pretty
I’m gonna have fun in my city
I’ll be with my girl

Good morning to you if you are waking, and Good evening to those in Australia about to have dinner.  Here is a wonderful song to inspire hopefully. From Jimmy Cliff, the classic “I can see clearly.”   Enjoy, and have a good one!

“I Can See Clearly Now”

I can see clearly now the rain is gone.

Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind.
It’s gonna be a bright (bright)
bright (bright) sunshiny day.
It’s gonna be a bright (bright)
bright (bright) sunshiny day.

All of the bad feelings have disappeared.
Here is that rainbow I’ve been praying for.

Look straight ahead, there’s nothing but blue skies.

It’s gonna be a bright (bright)
bright (bright) sunshiny day.

Tony Bennett, Lady Gaga – The Lady is a Tramp

 

A classic and beautiful duet of an old favorite.  The snappy sound and clear voice of Lady Gaga, just take me away.  Tony Bennett just never ages. He is truly a legend.  Click and enjoy, guys.

“The Lady Is A Tramp”
(with Tony Bennett)

[Tony Bennett:]
She gets too hungry for dinner at 8

[Lady Gaga:]
(I’m starving)

[Tony Bennett:]
She loves the theater but she never comes late

[Lady Gaga:]
I never bother with people that I hate
That’s why this chick is a tramp

[Tony Bennett:]
She doesn’t like crap games with barons and earls

[Lady Gaga:]
Won’t go to Harlem in ermine and pearls
And I definitely won’t dish our dirt with the rest of those girls

[Tony Bennett:]
That’s why the lady is a tramp

[Lady Gaga:]
I love the free fresh wind in my hair

[Tony Bennett:]
Life without care

[Lady Gaga:]
Oh, I’m so broke,

[Tony Bennett:]
It’s OK

[Lady Gaga:]
I hate California. It’s crowded and damp

[Tony Bennett:]
That’s why the lady is a tramp

[Lady Gaga:]
I’m a tramp!

Sometimes I go to Coney Island

[Tony Bennett:]
Oh, the beach is divine

[Lady Gaga:]
I love the Yankees

[Tony Bennett:]
Jeter is just fine

[Lady Gaga:]
I follow Rogers and Hart

[Tony Bennett:]
She sings every line

[BOTH:]
That’s why the lady is a tramp

[Lady Gaga:]
I love the prize fight

[Tony Bennett:]
That isn’t a fake

[Lady Gaga:]
No fakes

And I love to rowboat with you and your wife in Central Park Lake

[Tony Bennett:]
She goes to the opera and stays wide awake

[Lady Gaga:]
Yes I do

That’s why this lady is a tramp

[Tony Bennett:]
She likes the green (green) grass (grass) under her shoes

[Lady Gaga:]
What can I lose? ’cause I got no dough (Oh no?)
I’m all alone when I lower my lamp

[Tony Bennett:]
That’s why the lady is a tramp
Go

[Lady Gaga:]
I love your free, fresh, I love your handkerchief in my hair

[Tony Bennett:]
Life without care

[Lady Gaga:]
But I’m so broke!

[Tony Bennett:]
That’s OK!

Hates California, it’s cold and it’s damp

[BOTH:]
That’s why the lady is a tramp
That’s why this lady is a tramp!

[Lady Gaga:]
That’s why the lady is a tramp

 

Stevie Nicks – Edge of Seventeen.

This is my song pick of the week from my car.  I sing this loud and proud with the window down.  Enjoy.

Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she’s singin’
Whoo-whoo-whoo
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she’s singin’
Whoo, baby, whoo
Said, whoo

And the days go by
Like a strand in the wind
In the web that is my own
I begin again
Said to my friend, baby
Nothin’ else mattered

He was no more
(He was no more)
Than a baby then
Well, he seemed broken hearted
Somethin’ within him
But the moment
That I first laid
Eyes on him
All alone on the edge of seventeen

 

Well, I went today
Maybe I will go again
Tomorrow, yeah, yeah
Well, the music there
Well it was hauntingly familiar
When I see you doin’
What I try to do for me
With their words of a poet
And a voice from a choir
And a melody
Nothin’ else mattered

The clouds never expect it
When it rains
But the sea changes colours
But the sea
Does not change
So with the slow graceful flow
Of age
I went forth with an age old
Desire to please
On the edge of seventeen

 

Well then suddenly
There was no one left standing
In the hall, yeah, yeah
In a flood of tears
That no one really ever heard fall at all
When I went searchin’ for an answer
Up the stairs and down the hall
Not to find an answer
Just to hear the call
Of a nightbird singin’
(Come away)
(Come away)

Well, I hear you (well, I hear you)
In the morning (in the morning)
And I hear you (and I hear you)
At nightfall (at nightfall)
Sometime to be near you
Is to be unable to hear you
My love
I’m a few years older than you
(I’m a few years older than you)
