You’re insecure, don’t know what for

You’re turning heads when you walk through the do-o-or 

Don’t need make-up to cover up

Being the way that you are is enou-ou-ough

Everyone else in the room can see it

Everyone else, but you, ooh

Baby, you light up my world like nobody else

The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed

But when you smile at the ground, it ain’t hard to tell

You don’t know, oh-oh

You don’t know you’re beautiful

If only you saw what I can see

You’ll understand why I want you so desperately

Right now I’m lookin’ at you, and I can’t believe

You don’t know, oh-oh

You don’t know you’re beautiful, oh-oh

That’s what makes you beautiful

So c-come on, you got it wrong

To prove I’m right, I put it in a song

I don’t know why you’re being shy

And turn away when I look into your eye-eye-eyes

Everyone else in the room can see it

Everyone else, but you, ooh

Baby, you light up my world like nobody else

The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed

But when you smile at the ground, it ain’t hard to tell

You don’t know, oh-oh

You don’t know you’re beautiful

If only you saw what I can see

You’ll understand why I want you so desperately

Right now I’m lookin’ at you, and I can’t believe

You don’t know, oh-oh

You don’t know you’re beautiful, oh-oh

That’s what makes you beautiful

Na-na-na, na-na-na, na, na, na

Na-na-na, na-na-na

Na-na-na, na-na-na, na, na, na

Na-na-na, na-na-na

Baby, you light up my world like nobody else

The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed

But when you smile at the ground, it ain’t hard to tell

(You don’t know, oh-oh)

You don’t know you’re beautiful

Baby, you light up my world like nobody else

The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed

But when you smile at the ground, it ain’t hard to tell

You don’t know, oh-oh

You don’t know you’re beautiful

If only you saw what I can see

You’ll understand why I want you so desperately

Right now I’m lookin’ at you, and I can’t believe

You don’t know, oh-oh

You don’t know you’re beautiful, oh-oh

You don’t know you’re beautiful, oh-oh

That’s what makes you beautiful

Music and Lyrics by Amy Winehouse and Mark Ronson

Arranged by Eric Knechtges

 

He left no time to regret

Kept his dick wet

With his same old safe bet

Me and my head high

And my tears dry

Get on without my guy

You went back to what you knew

So far removed

From all that we went through

And I tread a troubled track

My odds are stacked

I’ll go back to black

We only said goodbye with words

I died a hundred times

You go back to her

And I go back to

I go back to us

I love you much

It’s not enough

You love blow and I love puff

And life is like a pipe

And I’m a tiny penny

Rolling up the walls inside

We only said goodbye with words

I died a hundred times

You go back to her

And I go back to

We only said goodbye with words

I died a hundred times

You go back to her

And I go back to

Black, black

Black, black

Black, black

Black

I go back to

I go back to

We only said goodbye with words

I died a hundred times

You go back to her

And I go back to

We only said goodbye with words

I died a hundred times

You go back to her

And I go back to black

Music and Lyrics by John Lennon and Paul McCartney

by Kevin Robison


Here come old flat top

He come grooving up slowly

He got joo joo eyeball

He one holy roller

He got hair down to his knee

Got to be a joker he just do what he please

He wear no shoe shine

He got toe jam football

He got monkey finger

He shoot Coca-Cola

He say I know you, you know me

One thing I can tell you is you got to be free

Come together, right now, over me

He bag production

He got walrus gumboot

He got Ono sideboard

He one spinal cracker

He got feet down below his knee

Hold you in his armchair you can feel his disease

Come together, right now, over me

He roller coaster

He got early warning

He got muddy water

He one mojo filter

He say, “one and one and one is three”

Got to be good looking ‘cause he’s so hard to see

Come together, right now, over me

Music and Lyrics by John Lennon and Paul McCartney

by Kevin Robison

 

Picture yourself in a boat on a river

With tangerine trees and marmalade skies

Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly

A girl with kaleidoscope eyes

Cellophane flowers of yellow and green

Towering over your head

Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes

And she’s gone

Lucy in the sky with diamonds

Lucy in the sky with diamonds

Lucy in the sky with diamonds

Ah

Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain

Where rocking horse people eat marshmallow pies

Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers

That grow so incredibly high

Newspaper taxis appear on the shore

Waiting to take you away

Climb in the back with your head in the clouds

And you’re gone

Lucy in the sky with diamonds

Lucy in the sky with diamonds

Lucy in the sky with diamonds

Music and Lyrics by John Lennon and Paul McCartney

by Kevin Robison

 

Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup

They slither wildly as they slip away across the universe

Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my opened mind

Possessing and caressing me

Jai guru deva, om

Nothing’s gonna change my world

Nothing’s gonna change my world

Nothing’s gonna change my world

Nothing’s gonna change my world

Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes

They call me on and on across the universe

Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letterbox they

They tumble blindly as they make their way across the universe

Jai guru deva, om

Nothing’s gonna change my world

Music and Lyrics by John Lennon and Paul McCartney

by Kevin Robison

 

He’s a real nowhere man
Sitting in his nowhere land
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
Doesn’t have a point of view
Knows not where he’s going to
Isn’t he a bit like you and me?
Nowhere man, please listen
You don’t know what you’ve been missin’
Nowhere man the world is at your command
Ah la la la la
He’s a real nowhere man
Sitting in his nowhere land
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
Making all his nowhere plans

Music and Lyrics by John Lennon and Paul McCartney

by Kevin Robison

 

In the town where I was born
Lived a man who sailed the sea
And he told us of his life
In the land of submarines
So we sailed up to the sun
‘Til we found a sea of green
And we lived beneath the waves
In our yellow submarine
We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
And our friends are all aboard
Many more of them live next door
And the band begins to play
We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine

He’s the man, the man with the Midas touch

A spider’s touch

Such a cold finger

Beckons you to enter his web of sin

But don’t go in

Golden words he will pour in your ear

But his lies can’t disguise what you fear

For a golden girl knows when he’s kissed her

It’s the kiss of death from

Mister Goldfinger

Pretty girl beware of this heart of gold

This heart is cold

Golden words he will pour in your ear

But his lies can’t disguise what you fear

For a golden girl knows when he’s kissed her

It’s the kiss of death from

Mister Goldfinger

Pretty girl beware of this heart of gold

This heart is cold

He loves only gold

Only gold

Guess it’s true, I’m not good at a one-night stand

But I still need love ‘cause I’m just a man

These nights never seem to go to plan

I don’t want you to leave, will you hold my hand?

Oh, won’t you stay with me?

‘Cause you’re all I need

This ain’t love, it’s clear to see

But darling, stay with me

Why am I so emotional?

No, it’s not a good look, gain some self-control

And deep down I know this never works

But you can lay with me so it doesn’t hurt

Oh, won’t you stay with me?

‘Cause you’re all I need

This ain’t love, it’s clear to see

But darling, stay with me

Music and Lyrics by Alex Kapranos and Nick McCarthy

Arranged by Pax Ressler

 

So if you’re lonely, you know I’m here waiting for you

I’m just a cross-hair, I’m just a shot away from you

And if you leave here, you leave me broken shattered I lie

I’m just a cross-hair, I’m just a shot then we can die

I know I won’t be leaving here with you

I say, don’t you know?

You say, you don’t know

I say, take me out!

I say, you don’t show

Don’t move, time is slow

I say, take me out!

Well I say, you don’t know?

You say, you don’t go

I say, take me out!

If I move, this could die

Eyes move, this can die

I want you to take me out

I know I won’t be leaving here

I know I won’t be leaving here

I know I won’t be leaving here

I know I won’t be leaving here with you

I say, don’t you know?

You say, you don’t know

I say, take me out!

If I wane, this could die

I wait, this could die

I want you to take me out

If I move, this could die

Eyes move, this can die

Come on, take me out

Empty spaces, what are we living for?

Abandoned places, I guess we know the score, on and on

Does anybody know what we are looking for?

Another hero, another mindless crime

Behind the curtain, in the pantomime

Hold the line

Does anybody want to take it anymore?

The show must go on

The show must go on, yeah

Inside my heart is breaking

My makeup may be flaking

But my smile, still, stays on

Whatever happens, I’ll leave it all to chance

Another heartache, another failed romance, on and on

Does anybody know what we are living for?

I guess I’m learning

I must be warmer now

I’ll soon be turning, round the corner now

Outside the dawn is breaking

But inside in the dark I’m aching to be free

The show must go on

The show must go on

Inside my heart is breaking

My makeup may be flaking

But my smile, still, stays on

My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies

Fairy tales of yesterday, grow but never die

I can fly, my friends

The show must go on

The show must go on

I’ll face it with a grin

I’m never giving in

On with the show

I’ll top the bill

I’ll overkill

I have to find the will to carry on

On with the show

Show

Show must go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, go on

Hello, it’s me

I was wondering if after all these years you’d like to meet

To go over everything

They say that time’s supposed to heal ya

But I ain’t done much healing

Hello, can you hear me?

I’m in California dreaming about who we used to be

When we were younger and free

I’ve forgotten how it felt before the world fell at our feet

There’s such a difference between us

And a million miles

Hello from the other side

I must’ve called a thousand times

To tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve done

But when I call, you never seem to be home

Hello from the outside

At least I can say that I’ve tried

To tell you I’m sorry for breaking your heart

But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart anymore

Hello, how are you?

It’s so typical of me to talk about myself, I’m sorry

I hope that you’re well

Did you ever make it out of that town where nothing ever happened?

It’s no secret that the both of us are running out of time

So hello from the other side (Other side)

I must’ve called a thousand times (Thousand times)

To tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve done

But when I call, you never seem to be home

Hello from the outside (Outside)

At least I can say that I’ve tried (I’ve tried)

To tell you I’m sorry for breaking your heart

But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart anymore

Ooh-ooh, anymore

Ooh-ooh-ooh, anymore

Ooh-ooh, anymore

Anymore

Hello from the other side (Other side)

I must’ve called a thousand times (Thousand times)

To tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve done

But when I call, you never seem to be home

Hello from the outside (Outside)

At least I can say that I’ve tried (I’ve tried)

To tell you I’m sorry for breaking your heart

But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart anymore

We’ll do it all

Everything

On our own

We don’t need

Anything

Or anyone

If I lay here

If I just lay here

Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

I don’t quite know

How to say

How I feel

Those three words

Are said too much

They’re not enough

If I lay here

If I just lay here

Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we’re told

Before we get too old

Show me a garden that’s bursting into life

Let’s waste time

Chasing cars

Around our heads

I need your grace

To remind me

To find my own

If I lay here

If I just lay here

Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we’re told

Before we get too old

Show me a garden that’s bursting into life

All that I am

All that I ever was

Is here in your perfect eyes, they’re all I can see

I don’t know where

Confused about how as well

Just know that these things will never change for us at all

If I lay here

If I just lay here

Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Another head hangs lowly

Child is slowly taken

And the violence caused such silence

Who are we mistaken?

But you see, it’s not me, it’s not my family

In your head, in your head, they are fightin’

With their tanks and their bombs and their bombs and their guns

In your head, in your head, they are cryin’

In your head, in your head

Zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie

What’s in your head, in your head?

Zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie-ie, oh

Du, du, du, du

Du, du, du, du

Du, du, du, du

Du, du, du, du

Another mother’s breakin’

Heart is takin’ over

When the violence causes silence

We must be mistaken

It’s the same old theme, since 1916

In your head, in your head, they’re still fightin’

With their tanks and their bombs and their bombs and their guns

In your head, in your head, they are dyin’

In your head, in your head

Zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie

What’s in your head, in your head?

Zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie-ie, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, eh-eh-oh, ra-ra

Ever since I was a young boy

I’ve played the silver ball

From Soho down to Brighton

I must have played ‘em all

But I ain’t seen nothing like him

In any amusement hall

That deaf, dumb and blind kid

Sure plays a mean pinball

He stands like a statue

Becomes part of the machine

Feeling all the bumpers

Always playing clean

He plays by intuition

The digit counters fall

That deaf, dumb and blind kid

Sure plays a mean pinball

He’s a pinball wizard

There has got to be a twist

A pinball wizard’s

Got such a supple wrist

How do you think he does it? I don’t know

What makes him so good?

Ain’t got no distractions

Can’t hear no buzzers and bells

Don’t see no lights a-flashin’

Plays by sense of smell

Always gets a replay

Never seen him fall

That deaf, dumb and blind kid

Sure plays a mean pinball

I thought I was

The Bally table king

But I just handed

My pinball crown to him

Even on my favorite table

He can beat my best

His disciples lead him in

And he just does the rest

He’s got crazy flipper fingers

Never seen him fall

That deaf, dumb and blind kid

Sure plays a mean pinball
