Urge For Going Lyrics
I awoke today and found the frost perched on the town
It hovered in a frozen sky, then it gobbled summer down
When the sun turns traitor cold and all the trees are shivering in a naked row

I get the urge for going
But I never seem to go
I get the urge for going
When the meadow grass is turning brown
Summertime is falling down and winter is closing in

I had me a man in summertime
He had summer-colored skin
And not another girl in town
My darling's heart could win
But when the leaves fell on the ground
Bully winds came around, pushed them face down in the snow

He got the urge for going
And I had to let him go
He got the urge for going
When the meadow grass was turning brown
Summertime was falling down and winter was closing in

Now the warriors of winter they gave a cold triumphant shout
And all that stays is dying and all that lives is camping out
See the geese in chevron flight flapping and racing on before the snow

They got the urge for going
And they got the wings so they can go
They get the urge for going
When the meadow grass is turning brown
Summertime is falling down and winter is closing in

Chelsea Morning Lyrics
Woke up, it was a Chelsea morning, and the first thing that I heard
Was a song outside my window, and the traffic wrote the words
It came a-reeling up like Christmas bells, and rapping up like pipes and drums

Oh, won't you stay
We'll put on the day
And we'll wear it 'till the night comes

Woke up, it was a Chelsea morning, and the first thing that I saw
Was the sun through yellow curtains, and a rainbow on the wall
Blue, red, green and gold to welcome you, crimson crystal beads to beckon

Oh, won't you stay
We'll put on the day
There's a sun show every second

Now the curtain opens on a portrait of today
And the streets are paved with passersby
And pigeons fly
And papers lie
Waiting to blow away

Woke up, it was a Chelsea morning, and the first thing that I knew
There was milk and toast and honey and a bowl of oranges, too
And the sun poured in like butterscotch and stuck to all my senses
Oh, won't you stay
We'll put on the day
And we'll talk in present tenses

When the curtain closes and the rainbow runs away
I will bring you incense owls by night
By candlelight
By jewel-light
If only you will stay
Pretty baby, won't you
Wake up, it's a Chelsea morning

Big Yellow Taxi Lyrics
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
With a pink hotel, a boutique
And a swinging hot spot

Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got until it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

They took all the trees
Put them in a tree museum
And they charged the people
A dollar and a half just to see them

Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got until it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

Hey farmer, farmer
Put away that DDT now
Give me spots on my apples
But leave me the birds and the bees
Please!

Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got until it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

Late last night
I heard the screen door slam
And a big yellow taxi
Took away my old man

Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got until it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

Woodstock Lyrics
I came upon a child of God
He was walking along the road
And I asked him, where are you going
And this he told me
I'm going on down to Yasgur's farm
I'm going to join in a rock 'n' roll band
I'm going to camp out on the land
I'm going to try an' get my soul free
We are stardust
We are golden
And we've got to get ourselves
Back to the garden

Then can I walk beside you
I have come here to lose the smog
And I feel to be a cog in something turning
Well maybe it is just the time of year
Or maybe it's the time of man
I don't know who l am
But you know life is for learning
We are stardust
We are golden
And we've got to get ourselves
Back to the garden

By the time we got to Woodstock
We were half a million strong
And everywhere there was song and celebration
And I dreamed I saw the bombers
Riding shotgun in the sky
And they were turning into butterflies
Above our nation
We are stardust
Billion year old carbon
We are golden
Caught in the devil's bargain
And we've got to get ourselves
Back to the garden

The Circle Game Lyrics
Yesterday a child came out to wander
Caught a dragonfly insider a jar
Fearful when the skies are full of thunder
And tearful at the falling of a star.

And the seasons, they go round and round
And the painted ponies go up and down.
We're captive on a carousel of time.
We can't return, we can only look behind from where we came
And go round and round and round in the circle game.

Now the child's grown 10 times round the seasons
skated over 10 clear frozen streams
words like "when you're older" must appease him
and promises of someday make his dreams

And the seasons, they go round and round
And the painted ponies go up and down.
We're captive on a carousel of time.
We can't return, we can only look behind from where we came
And go round and round and round in the circle game.

sixteen springs and sixteen summers gone now
cartwheels turn to car wheels through the town
and they tell him "take your time it wont be long now"
till you drag your feet to slow that circle down

And the seasons, they go round and round
And the painted ponies go up and down.
We're captive on a carousel of time.
We can't return, we can only look behind from where we came
And go round and round and round in the circle game.

Now the child of yesterday's grown twenty
although some dreams are lost, some grandures coming true
there'll be new dreams, maybe better dreams and plenty
before the last revolving year is through

And the seasons, they go round and round
And the painted ponies go up and down.
We're captive on a carousel of time.
We can't return, we can only look behind from where we came
And go round and round and round in the circle game.

Carey Lyrics
Carey

-Joni Mitchell

The wind is in from Africa
Last night, I couldn't sleep
Oh you know it sure is hard to leave you, Carey
But it's really not my home
My fingernails are filthy
I've got beach tar on my feet
And I miss my clean white linen and my fancy French cologne

Chorus:

Oh Carey get out your cane (Carey get out your cane!)
I'll put on some silver (I'll put on some silver)
Oh, you're a mean old Daddy, but I like you

Come on down to the mermaid cafe
And I will buy you a bottle of wine
And we'll laugh, and toast to nothing
And smash our empty glasses
Let's have a round for these freaks and these soldiers
A round for these friends of mine
Let's have another round for the bright red devil who
Keeps me in this tourist town

Chorus

Maybe I'll go to Amsterdam
Or maybe I'll go to Rome
And rent me a grand piano
And put some flowers around my room
But let's not talk about fare thee wells now
The night is a starry dome
And they're playing that scratchy rock 'n roll
Beneath the Mantella moon

Chorus

The wind is in from Africa
Last night, I couldn't sleep
Oh you know it sure is hard to leave you, Carey
But it's really not my home
Maybe it's been too long a time since I was
Scrambling down the street
Now they got me used to that clean white linen
And that fancy French cologne

Oh, Carey get out your cane (Carey, get out your cane.)
I'll put on my finest silver (I'll put on my finest silver,)
We'll go to the Mermaid Cafe
Have fun tonight
I said oh you're a mean old Daddy but you're out of site

California Lyrics
Sitting in a park in Paris, France
Reading the news. and it sure looks bad
They don't give peace a chance
It was just a dream some of us had

Still a lot of lands to see
But I wouldn't want to stay here
It's old and cold and settled in it's ways here
Ah, but California

California, I'm coming home
I'm going to go see the folks I dig
I'll even kiss the sunset pig
California, coming home

I met a redneck on a Grecian isle
Who did the goat dance very well
He gave me back my smile,
But he kept my camera to sell

Oh the rogue, the red red rogue
He cooked good omelettes and stews
And I met have stayed on with him there
But my heart cried out for you, California

California, I'm coming home
Oh make me feel good, rock and roll band
I'm your biggest fan
California, coming home

Oh it gets so lonely
When your walking
And the streets are full of strangers
All the news of home you read
Just gives you the blues
Just gives you the blues

So I bought me a ticket,
I caught a plane to Spain
Went to party down a red dirt road
There were lot's of pretty people there, reading Rolling Stone, reading Vogue

They said, "How long can you hang around?"
I said, "A week, maybe two,
Just until my skin turns brown, then I'm going home
To California."


California, I'm coming home
Will you take me as I am
Strung out on another man
California, coming home

Oh it gets so lonely
When your walking
And the streets are full of strangers
All the news of home you read
More about the war and the bloody changes
Oh, will you take me as I am?
Will you take me as I am?
Will you, will take me as I am?

Raised On Robbery Lyrics
He was sitting in the lounge of the Empire Hotel
He was drinking for diversion
He was thinking for himself
A little money riding on the Maple Leafs
Along comes a lady in lacy sleeves
She says let me sit down
You know, drinkin' alone's a shame
It's a shame it's a crying shame
Look at those jokers
Glued to that damn hockey game
Hey honey-you've got lots of cash
Bring us round a bottle
And we'll have some laughs
Gin's what I'm drinking
I was raised on robbery

I'm a pretty good cook
I'm sitting on my groceries
Come up to my kitchen
I'll show you my best recipe
I try and I try but I can't save a cent
I'm up after midnight cooking
Trying to make my rent
I'm rough but I'm pleasin'
I was raised on robbery

We had a little money once
They were pushing through a four lane highway
Government gave us three thousand dollars
You should have seen it fly away
First he bought a '57 Biscayne
He put it in the ditch
He drunk up all the rest
That son of a bitch
His blood's bad whiskey
I was raised on robbery

You know you ain't bad looking
I like the way you hold your drinks
Come home with me honey
I ain't asking for no full length mink
Hey, where you going
Don't go yet
Your glass ain't empty and we just met
You're mean when your loaded
I was raised on robbery

Help Me Lyrics
Help me
I think I'm falling
In love again
When I get that crazy feeling, I know
I'm in trouble again
I'm in trouble
'Cause you're a rambler and a gambler
And a sweet-taIking-ladies man
And you love your lovin'
But not like you love your freedom

Help me
I think I'm falling
In love too fast
It's got me hoping for the future
And worrying about the past
'Cause I've seen some hot hot blazes
Come down to smoke and ash
We love our lovin'
But not like we love our freedom

Didn't it feel good
We were sitting there talking
Or lying there not talking
Didn't it feel good
You dance with the lady
With the hole in her stocking
Didn't it feel good
Didn't it feel good

Help me
I think I'm falling
In love with you
Are you going to let me go there by myself
That's such a lonely thing to do
Both of us flirting around
Flirting and flirting
Hurting too
We love our lovin'
But not like we love our freedom

Free Man In Paris Lyrics
[NARRATOR]
And the Baker gave Jack five beans in exchange for his cow,
keeping one for himself.

[JACK]
I guess this is goodbye, old pal,
You've been a perfect friend.
I hate to have to part, old pal,
Some day I'll buy you back.
I'll see you soon again.
I hope that when I do,
It won't be on a plate.

[BAKER]
Magic beans!

[BAKER'S WIFE]
No one would have given him more
for this creature.

[BAKER]
Are we to dispel this curse through deceit?

[BAKER'S WIFE]
If you know
What you want,
Then you go
And you find it
And you get it-

[BAKER]
Home.

[BAKER'S WIFE]
Do we want a child or not?

And you give
And you take
And you bid
And you bargain
Or you live
To regret it.

[BAKER]
Will you please go home?

[BAKER'S WIFE]
There are rights and wrongs
And in-betweens-
No one waits
When fortune intervenes.
And maybe they're really magic,
Who knows?

Why you do
What you do,
That's the point:
All the rest of it
Is chatter.

[BAKER]
Look at her. She's crying.

[BAKER'S WIFE]
If the thing you do
Is pure in intent,
If it's meant,
And it's just a little bent,
Does it matter?

[BAKER]
Yes.

[BAKER'S WIFE]
No, what matters is that
Everyone tells tiny lies.
What's important, really is, the size.

Only three more tries and we'll have our prize.
When the end's in sight,
You'll realize:
If the end is right,
It justifies
The beans!

River Lyrics
It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

But it don't snow here
It stays pretty green
I'm going to make a lot of money
Then I'm going to quit this crazy scene
I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I made my baby cry

He tried hard to help me
You know, he put me at ease
And he loved me so naughty
Made me weak in the knees
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

I'm so hard to handle
I'm selfish and I'm sad
Now I've gone and lost the best baby
That I ever had
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh I wish I had a river
I made my baby say goodbye

It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

Come In From The Cold Lyrics
Way back in 1957
We had to dance a foot apart
And they hawk-eyed us
From the sidelines
Holding their rulers without a heart
And so with just a touch of our fingers
Oh, we could make our circuitry explode
All we ever wanted
Was just to come in from the cold

Come in
Come in from the cold
(we were so young)
Oh come in
Come in from the cold

We really thought we had a purpose
We were so anxious to achieve
We had hope
The world held promise
For a slave
To liberty
Freely I slaved away for
Something better
And I was bought and sold
And all I ever wanted
Was just to come in from the cold

Come in
Come in from the cold
(we were so sure)
Please come in
Come in from the cold

I feel your legs under the table
Leaning into mine
I feel renewed
I feel disabled
By these bonfires in my spine
I don't know who the arsonist was
Which incendiary soul
But all I ever wanted
Was just to come in from the cold

Come in
Come in from the cold
(you were too warm)
Oh come in come in
Come in from the cold

I am not some comission
Like a statue in a park
I am flesh and blood and vision
I am howling in the dark
Long blue shadows of the jackals
Are falling on a pay phone
By the road
Oh all we ever wanted
Was just to come in from the cold

Come in
Come in from the cold
(I was so low)
Oh come in
Come in from the cold

Is this just vulgar electricity
Is this the edifying fire
(it was so pure)
Does your smile's covert complicity
Debase as it admires
(just a flu with a temperature)
Are you just checking out your mojo
Or am I just fighting off getting old
(just a high fever)
All I ever wanted
Was just to come in from the cold

Come in
Come in from the cold
(it was so pure)
Please come in
Come in from the cold

I know we never will be perfect
Never entirely clear
(when the moon shines)
We get hurt and we just panic
And we strike out
Out of fear
(you were only being kind)
I fear the sentance of this solitude
200 years on hold
(for my loving crime)
Oh and all we ever wanted
Was just to come in from the cold

Come in
Oh come in from the cold
(when the moon shines)
Oh come in
Come in from the cold

When I thought life had some meaning
The I thought I had some choice
(I was running blind)
And I made some value judgments
In a self-important voice
( I was outa line)
But then absurdity came over me
And I longed to lose control
(Into no mind)
Oh all I ever wanted
Was just to come in from the cold

Come in
Come in from teh cold
(you were so kind)
Please come in
(so kind)
Come in from teh cold
Come in Come in
Come in from the cold
