where do you, where do you, where do you,

where do you, where do you get off
living your life, not giving it all up
to c’mere?

moving it, saying it, moving it, saying it, moving it slow

if the answer’s in my hands

so I wanna move you, I wanna move you around

I wanna move you, I wanna move you around

I wanna move you I wanna move you around
I wanna kick off your boots, give up the fight, summon the night,
sick and tired of you so polite

they’ll all come running (show ‘em how to get it done)
they all come running, running back to you

one foot out the window
in some kind of limbo
oh-ah, ba-ba-ba-da

but maybe the answer
is to become a dancer
oh-ah

and they’ll all come running (strut it like a son of a gun)
they’ll all come running (show ‘em how to get it done)
they all come running back to you (see. them. see them run)

one foot out the window
in some kind of
with your art school glasses and your bedhead hair

what a pretty little boy
high tops to match
straight-laced
with a side-long grin
you had everyone laughing
keeled over
tears in their eyes

you're like a warm up act for the next big thing
you brought everybody to watch
all the children around don't influence you
and you get a coke back for your scotch

band play on!
and the band played over a couple of roller coaster rides
ah-ah-ah-ah-ah ahhhh

afterparty! afterparty at Jimmy's!

there’s a room upstairs
oh yeah no one even knows it’s there
ah-ah-ah-ah-ah ahhhh

so you say you got a band?
three parts kinks, one part the jam

you got soul on stage, boy
how ‘bout soul in the sack, huh? who knows!?
i’ve got a mind to determine that
band play on! band play on!
ah-ah-ah-ah-ah ahhhh

Track Name: Waters Of March
Waters Of March (águas de março)



(written by Antonio Carlos Jobim;
with additional lyrics by Susannah McCorkle)


É pau, é pedra
é o fim do caminho
É um resto de toco
é um pouco sozinho




A stick, a stone, it's the end of the road
It's feeling alone, it's the weight of your load
It's a sliver of glass, it's life, it's the sun
It's night, it's death, it's a knife, it's a gun



A flower that blooms, a fox in the brush
A knot in the wood, the song of the thrush
A mystery of life, the steps in the hall
The sound of the wind, and the waterfall


It's the moon floating free, the curve of the slope
It's an ant, it's a bee, it's a reason for hope
And the riverbank sings of the waters of March
It's the promise of spring, it's the joy in your heart



É o pé, é o chão
é a marcha estradeira
Passarinho na mão,
pedra de atiradeira


É uma ave no céu
é uma ave no chão
É um regato, é uma fonte
é um pedaço de pão


É o fundo do poço
é o fim do caminho
No rosto o desgosto
é um pouco sozinho


A spear, a spike, a stake, a nail
It's a drip, it's a drop, it's the end of the tale
The dew on the leaf in the morning light
The shot of a gun in the dead of the night


A mile, a must, a thrust, a bump
It's the will to survive, it's a jolt, it's a jump
Blue print of a house, a body in bed
Car stuck in the mud, it's the mud, it's the mud


A fish, a flash, a wish, a wing
It's a hawk, it's a dove, it's the promise of spring
And the riverbank sings of the waters of March
It's the end of despair, it's the joy in your heart

É uma cobra, é um pau
é João, é José
É um espinho na mão
é um corte no pé
São as águas de março
fechando o verão
É a promessa de vida
no teu coração


A stick, a stone, it's the end of the road
The stump of a tree, it's a frog, it's a toad
A sigh, a breath, a walk, a run
A life, a death, the rain, the sun


And the riverbank sings of the waters of March
It's the promise of life, it's the joy in your heart
Track Name: Not A Through Street
Not A Through Street

i don't remember much of anything of those years
kinda strange, kinda sad, considering
all the laughs and all the tears

could be this quiet cul de sac or the cynical moon
could be the neighbor's cat watching me from the living room
either way
these days i feel so strange (I remember you)
so strange (do you remember me)
secretly


so i comb the depths of the ocean floor of my memory
grasping onto some shell, some piece,
some evidence of you and me


sunlight streaming mornings
and your head in the sheets
dancing naked in the living room
i still practice secretly (I remember you)
secretly (do you remember me)
secretly (I remember you)
secretly (do you remember me)
secretly


you're a mile away/ on your island so blue
doing who-knows-what/ with who-knows-who

haphazard lovers/ don't seem to drown out your tune
goes for me anyway/ i don't know about you


so no matter what or when or who
you remember me
i’ll remember
you remember me
i'll remember
you remember me
i’ll remember you (secretly)
remember you (secretly)
i’ll remember
Track Name: Cowboy
Cowboy

there was a dive bar and a cowboy
well not a cowboy really but he wore the hat
and there was someone who looked like me
at least a little but not exact

said he was gonna take me out proper
“you and me are going to the zoo.”
and i pretended that I was bored
and i could take my eyes off of you

all i had to do was ask
i never knew that this could last
i never knew what i was in for
this town thinks it’s got your number
it’s unlisted but they can wonder
and guess and speculate on you and me


little did i know just how far our little car could go
little did i know just how far our little car could go


said he was damaged over whiskey
yeah, a kind of Kerouac over cigarettes
“let me guess, you’re a gambler, too?”
he said, “i bet i marry you.”


all I had to do was look
you were such an open book
how could I miss what I was in for?
go on ahead and be a loner
put on your distant look and roam around the west
like jack and neal and dean
little did i know
uh oh oh
little did i see
little did i know just how far our little car could go
little did i know just how far your little car could go


but i drove a thousand miles for you
i even bent the rules it’s true
i swear to everything above
i never knew you at all
my love
Track Name: High On The Ceiling
High On The Ceiling

i read all of your mail
i searched all your clothes
and i had you tracked when you left home

i watched all of your tapes
read through all of the magazines
and i tapped your answering machine


no matter how i stare
can’t find you any anywhere


even if i was high on the ceiling
seeing is believing
i can’t conceive you’re even here


no matter how I stare
can’t find you any . . .


even if i was high on the ceiling
seeing is believing
i can’t conceive you’re even here



high on the ceiling
seeing is believing
i can’t conceive you’re even here


just got a feeling
seeing is believing
i can’t conceive you’re even here


high on the ceiling
seeing is believing
i can’t conceive you’re even here
i can’t conceive you’re even here
