Cleanup Time
(Lennon)


Moonlight on the water
Sunlight on my face
You and me together
We are in our place

The gods are in the heavens
Angels treat us well
Oracle has spoken
We cast the perfect spell

The queen is in the countin room
Counting out the money
The king is in the kitchen
Making bread and honey
No friends and yet no enemies
Absolutely free
No rats aboard the magic ship
Of perfect harmony

Now it begins, let it begin
Cleanup Time
Hey, cleanup time
Cleanup time
Well, well, well

However far we travel
Wherever we may roam
The center of the circle
Will always be our home
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Yeah, cleanup time
Cleanup time
Cleanup time
Cleanup time
Cleanup time
Cleanup time
Cleanup time

How Do You Sleep?
(John Lennon)


So Sgt. Pepper took you by surprise
You better see right through that mother's eyes
Those freaks was right when they said you was dead
The one mistake you made was in your head
Ah, how do you sleep?
Ah, how do you sleep at night?

You live with straights who tell you you was king
Jump when your momma tell you anything
The only thing you done was yesterday
And since you're gone you're just another day
Ah, how do you sleep?
Ah, how do you sleep at night?

Ah, how do you sleep?
Ah, how do you sleep at night?

A pretty face may last a year or two
But pretty soon they'll see what you can do
The sound you make is muzak to my ears
You must have learned something in all those years
Ah, how do you sleep?
Ah, how do you sleep at night?

* "How Do You Sleep?" é uma canção do álbum de John Lennon de 1971 Imagine, que é um ataque destinado a seu ex-parceiro de composições dos Beatles, Paul McCartney. A canção apresenta um slide guitar interpretado por George Harrison.

Instant Karma
(Shaved Fish) 


Instant Karma's gonna get you
Gonna knock you right on the head
You better get yourself together
Pretty soon you're gonna be dead
What in the world you thinking of
Laughing in the face of love
What on earth you tryin' to do
It's up to you, yeah you

Instant Karma's gonna get you
Gonna look you right in the face
Better get yourself together darlin'
Join the human race
How in the world you gonna see
Laughin' at fools like me
Who on earth d'you think you are
A super star
Well, right you are

Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Well we all shine on
Ev'ryone come on

Instant Karma's gonna get you
Gonna knock you off your feet
Better recognize your brothers
Ev'ryone you meet
Why in the world are we here
Surely not to live in pain and fear
Why on earth are you there
When you're ev'rywhere
Come and get your share

Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Yeah we all shine on
Come on and on and on on on
Yeah yeah, alright, uh huh, ah

#9 Dream
(Lennon)


So long ago

Was it in a dream, was it just a dream?
I had know, yes I know
Seemed so very real, it seemed so real to me

Took a walk down the street
Thru the heat whispered trees
I thought I could hear (hear, hear, hear)
Somebody call out my name as it started to rain

Two spirits dancing so strange

Ah! böwakawa poussé, poussé
Ah! böwakawa poussé, poussé
Ah! bö
wakawa poussé, poussé

Dream, dream away
Magic in the air, was magic in the air?
I believe, yes I believe
More I cannot say, what more can I say?

On a river of sound
Thru the mirror go round, round
I thought I could feel (feel, feel, feel)
Music touching my soul, something warm, sudden cold
The spirit dance was unfolding

Ah! böwakawa poussé, poussé
Ah! böwakawa poussé, poussé
Ah! böwakawa poussé, poussé

Ah! böwakawa poussé, poussé
Ah! böwakawa poussé, poussé
Ah! böwakawa poussé, poussé
Ah! böwakawa poussé, poussé
Ah! böwakawa poussé, poussé
Ah! böwakawa poussé, poussé
Ah! böwakawa poussé, poussé
Ah! böwakawa poussé, poussé



*E continua o fascínio de Lennon com o número nove - ele nasceu em 09 de Outubro, os Beatles apareceram no The Ed Sullivan Show em 09 de fevereiro, "Revolution 9", etc. Coincidentemente, a música alcançou a posição # 9 nos Estados Unidos. Lennon gostou do arranjo de cordas que ele escreveu para a reedição de Harry Nilsson, de "Many Rivers to Cross", do álbum Pussy Cats tanto que ele resolveu incorporá-la à música.

Stand by me
(Ben E. King)

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we'll see
No I won't be afraid, no I won't be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

And darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh now now stand by me
Stand by me, stand by me

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
And the mountains should crumble to the sea
I won't cry, I won't cry, no I won't shed a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

And darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh stand by me
Stand by me, stand by me, stand by me-e, yeah

Whenever you're in trouble won't you stand by me, oh now now stand by me
Oh stand by me, stand by me, stand by me

Darlin', darlin', stand by me-e, stand by me
Oh stand by me, stand by me, stand by me.



*Segundo o documentário História do Rock 'n' Roll, Ben E. King não tinha intenção de gravar a canção quando escreveu. King tinha escrito a música para The Drifters, que passaram a chance de gravar. Foi só depois da sessão de gravação no "Spanish Harlem"que ele teve algum tempo de sobra no estúdio. Os produtores da sessão, Jerry Leiber e Mike Stoller, perguntaram se ele tinha alguma música e King tocou "Stand by Me" no piano para eles. Eles gostaram e chamaram os músicos em estúdio para gravá-lo.


*According to the documentary History of Rock 'n' Roll, Ben E. King had no intention of recording the song himself when he wrote it. King had written the song for The Drifters, who passed on the chance to record it. It was not until after the "Spanish Harlem" recording session that he had some studio time left over. The session's producers, Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, asked if he had any more songs and King played "Stand by Me" on the piano for them. They liked it and called the studio musicians back in to record it.

SIMPLY GREAT


Slippin' & Slidin'
(Richard, Bocage Collins, Smith)


 Slippin' and a slidin', peepin' and a hidin', been told long time ago,
Slippin' and a slidin', peepin' and a hidin', been told long time ago,
I been told, baby, you been bold, I won't be your fool no more.

Oh, big conniver, nothing but a jiver, done got hip to your jive,
Oh, big conniver, nothing but a jiver, done got hip to your jive,
Slippin' and a slidin', peepin' and a hidin', won't be your fool no more.

Oh Malinda, she's a solid sender, you know you better surrender,
Oh Malinda, she's a solid sender, you know you better surrender,
Slippin' and a slidin', peepin' and a hidin', won't be your fool no more.



* John Lennon gravou uma versão cover da música de Little Richard de1956, Slippin' & Slidin', para o seu álbum Rock 'n' Roll. Foi gravado no final de 1974 e lançado no ano seguinte ... Lennon:

"A primeira vez que ouvi essa faixa de Little Richard, um amigo meu  importou da Holanda. Ele saiu primeiro na Europa.Slippin' & Slidin', era o lado b de Long Tall Sally, que é a primeira canção Little Richard  que eu  ouvi e também foi gravada por Buddy Holly, de modo que abrange um pouco de ambos. Era uma canção que eu conhecia. Era mais fácil fazer músicas que eu sabia do que tentar aprender algo a partir do zero, mesmo se eu estivesse interessado nas canções. "



*John Lennon recorded a cover version of Little Richard's 1956 song Slippin' And Slidin' for his Rock 'N' Roll album. It was recorded in late 1974 and released the following year... Lennon:



"The first time I heard this Little RIchard track, a friend of mine imported it from Holland. It came out in Europe first. Slippin' And Slidin' was the b-side of Long Tall Sally, which is the first Little Richard song I ever heard and was also recorded by Buddy Holly, so that covers a little bit of both. It was a song I knew. It was easier to do songs that I knew than trying to learn something from scratch, even if I was interested in the songs."

Watching the Wheels
(Lennon)

People say I'm crazy doing what I'm doing
Well they give me all kinds of warnings to save me from ruin
When I say that I'm o.k. well they look at me kind of strange
Surely you're not happy now you no longer play the game

People say I'm lazy dreaming my life away
Well they give me all kinds of advice designed to enlighten me
When I tell them that I'm doing fine watching shadows on the wall
Don't you miss the big time boy you're no longer on the ball

I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round
I really love to watch them roll
No longer riding on the merry-go-round
I just had to let it go

Ah, people asking questions lost in confusion
Well I tell them there's no problem, only solutions
Well they shake their heads and they look at me as if I've lost my mind
I tell them there's no hurry
I'm just sitting here doing time

I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round
I really love to watch them roll
No longer riding on the merry-go-round
I just had to let it go
I just had to let it go
I just had to let it go

Beautiful Boy(Darling Boy)
(Lennon)


Close your eyes, 
Have no fear,
The monsters gone,
He's on the run and your daddy's here,

Beautiful,
Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,

Before you go to sleep,
Say a little prayer,
Every day in every way,
It's getting better and better,

Beautiful,
Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,

Out on the ocean sailing away,
I can hardly wait,
To see you to come of age,
But I guess we'll both,
Just have to be patient,
Yes it's a long way to go,
But in the meantime,

Before you cross the street,
Take my hand,
Life is just what happens to you,
While your busy making other plans,

Beautiful,
Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,
Darling,
Darling,
Darling Sean.
