Hoodoo Gurus - Come Anytime

What is it you want from me?
There isn’t much I will not do.
If it’s only company
You know, I might need that too.
Won’t you
Come anytime - I’m a man of leisure,
Come anytime, I await your pleasure.

There’s nothing new beneath the sun
We’ve butchered every sacred cow
Don’t tell me about all the things you might have done
Just tell me what are you doing now - right now.

Come anytime, I won’t give you pressure
Come anytime - I can wait forever
And if you can’t make up your mind
We could make it up together.

Things like this happen every day
Whatever happens, it’s O.K.
Why be afraid when we’ve got it made -
I’ll never ask you to explain.

What is it you want from me?
You won’t shock me easily.
Maybe it’s your heart’s desire,
Maybe it’s your wildest dream,
Maybe I’m a gun-for-hire but,
Baby, don’t we make quite a team, Don’t we?
Don’t we?
Come anytime (you’re so inclined) I won’t give you trouble
Come anytime (you’re going blind) or you’re seeing double
And I have never been the kind who’d want to
Burst your bubble.
Come anytime.

Hootie & The Blowfish - Old Man and Me (When I Get To Heaven)

Well an old man said to me
In a voice filled with pain
Where you going young man
Said I’m going to fight a war
Gonna fight for my country
In some foreign land
He said “The sun will never hurt you
Never harmed anyone
But you must realize”
If you try to stare her down
She will win in the end
She will burn your eyes
She will burn them

Seen a million places
Seen a million faces die
And I wonder who will walk with me
When I get to Heaven

He said “Boy I was young once
Yeah I was tough
Sailing on Uncle Sam’s boat
Hey I could kill the enemy
I could die on foreign streets
But I could not vote
But now you walk by me
You won’t talk to me
Say this is my fate
But every time you walk the streets boy
Most of them you meet
You see it’s you they hate
It’s you…

Seen a million faces
Seen a million places die
And I wonder who will walk with me
When I get to Heaven
I hope I get there

Seen a million places
Seen a million faces die
And I wonder who will walk with me
When I get there

See this woman sitting next to me
She’s been there for a long, long time
And when I fell, she picked me up
When I cried, she wiped my tears
I thank god she’s mine
And when I leave this world
She won’t have anything
But her love for me
‘Cause the man took everything else
Made me hate myself
So just let her be boy
Won’t you let her be

Men At Work - Overkill

I can’t get to sleep
I think about the implications
Of diving in too deep
And possibly the complications

Especially at night
I worry over situations
I know will be alright
Perahaps its just my imagination

Day after day it reappears
Night after night my heartbeat, shows the fear
Ghosts appear and fade away

Alone between the sheets
Only brings exasperation
It’s time to walk the streets
Smell the desperation

At least there’s pretty lights
And though there’s little variation
It nullifies the night
From overkill

Day after day it reappears
Night after night my heartbeat, shows the fear
Ghosts appear and fade away

I can’t get to sleep
I think about the implications
Of diving in too deep
And possibly the complications

Especially at night
I worry over situations
I know will be alright
It’s just overkill

Day after day it reappears
Night after night my heartbeat, shows the fear
Ghosts appear and fade away

Colin Hay - Beautiful World

My my my it?s a beautiful world
I like swimming in the sea
I like to go out beyond the white breakers
Where a man can still be free (or a woman if you are one)
I like swimming in the sea.

My my my it?s a beautiful world
I like drinking Irish tea
With a little bit of lapsang souchong
I like making my own tea.

My my my it?s a beautiful world
I like driving in my car
Roll the top down sometimes I travel quite far
Drive to the ocean stare up at the stars
I like driving in my car

All around is anger automatic guns
It?s death in large numbers no respect for women or our little ones
I tried talking to Jesus but He just put me on hold
Said He?d been swamped by calls this week
And He couldn?t shake His cold

And still this emptiness persists
Perhaps this is as good as it gets
When you?ve given up the drink and those nasty cigarettes
Now I leave the party early at least with no regrets
I watch the sun as it comes up I watch it as it sets
Yeah this is as good as it gets.

My my my it?s a beautiful world
I like sleeping with Marie
She is one sexy girl full of mystery
She says she doesn?t love me but she likes my company
For now that?s good enough for me

Men At Work - Dr. Heckyll and Mr. Jive

Dr. Heckyll works late at the laboratory
Where things are not as they seem
Dr. Heckyll wishes nothing more desperately
Than to fulfill his dreams
Letting loose with a scream in the dead of night
As he’s breaking new ground
Trying his best to unlock all the secrets
But he’s not sure what he’s found

Dr. Heckyll is his own little guinea pig
‘Cos they all think he’s mad
Sets his sights on the search of a lifetime
And he’s never, never sad

Whoa oh, its off to work he goes
In the name of science and all its wonders

This is the story of Dr. Heckyll and Mr. Jive
They are a person who feels good to be alive
This is the story of Dr. Heckyll and Mr. Jive
Believes the underdog will eventually survive

Not long now till the ultimate experiment
He’s breaking all the rules
He wants to cure all matter of imbalance
In this world of fools

He locks the door and looks around nervously
He knows there’s no one there
He drinks it down and waits for some reaction
To all his work and care

Hey, hey he fumbles for what to say
He loves the world except for all the people

This is the story of Dr. Heckyll and Mr. Jive
They are a person who feels good to be alive
This is the story of Dr. Heckyll and Mr. Jive
Believes the underdog will eventually survive

Whoa, oh, its out at night he goes
He sips easily into conversation
Hey hey, he’s cool in every way
Sometimes he likes to sing that old black magic

This is the story of Dr. Heckyll and Mr. Jive
They are a person who feels good to be alive
This is the story of Dr. Heckyll and Mr. Jive
Believes the underdog will eventually survive
