 Once Upon a Time in the West
 ---- ---- - ---- -- --- ----
 
 Some people get a cheep laugh breaking up the speed limit
 Scaring the pedestrians for a minute
 Crossing up the progress driving on the grass
 Leaving just enough room to pass
 Sunday driver never took a test
 Once upon a time in the west
 
 It's no use saying that you don't know nothing
 Still gonna get you if you don't do something
 Sitting on the fence that's a dangerous course
 You could even catch a bullet from the peace keeping force
 Even a hero gets a bullet in the chest
 Once upon a time in the west
 
 I want to marry your children Mrs. Louden
 Some of you mother's should lock up your daughters
 Who's protecting the innocent team
 A heap of trouble in the land of plenty
 Tell me how we're gonna do what's best
 Once upon a time in the west
 Once upon a time in the west
 
 News

 He sticks to his guns
 He take the road as it comes
 It takes the shine off his shoes
 
 He's says it's a shame
 You know it may be a game
 But I won't play to lose
 
 He's burning the grass
 He take up a glass
 He swallow it neet
 
 He crosses the floor
 He open the door
 He take a sniff of the street
 
 And she tell him that he's crazy
 She's saying listen baby
 I'm your wife
 
 She tells him he's crazy
 For gambling with his life
 
 But he climbs on his horse
 You know he feels no remorse
 He just kicks it alive
 
 His motor is fine
 He take it over the line
 Until he's ready to dive
 
 And she tells him that he's crazy
 She's saying listen baby
 I'm your wife
 
 She's tell him he's crazy
 For gambling with his life
 
 He sticks to his guns
 He take the road as it comes
 It takes the shine off his shoes
 
 He's says it's a shame
 You know it may be a game
 But I won't play to lose
 
 He sticks to his guns
 He take the road as it comes
 It takes the shine off his shoes
 
 He's too fast to stop
 He take it over the top
 He make a line in the news
 
 Where do you Think You're Going?
 ----- -- --- ----- ------ ------
 
 Where do you think you're going
 Don't you know it's dark outside
 Where do you think you're going
 Don't you care about my pride
 Where do you think you're going
 I think you don't know
 You got no way of knowing
 You got no place to go
 
 I understand your changes
 How long before you reach the door
 I know where you think you're going
 I know what you came here for
 And now I'm sick of joking
 You know I like you to be free
 Where do you think you're going
 I think you'd better go with me, girl
 
 You say there is no reason
 But you still find cause to doubt me
 When you ain't with me girl
 You're gonna be without me
 
 Where do you think you're going
 Don't you know it's dark outside
 Where do you think you're going
 Don't you care about my pride
 And now I'm sick of joking
 You know I like you to be free
 Where do you think you're going
 I think you'd better go with me, girl
 
 Communique
 ----------
 
 They wanna get a statement for Jesus sake
 It's like talking to the wall
 He's incommunicado no comment to make
 He's saying nothing at all
 
 But in the communique you know he's gonna come clean
 Think what he say, say what he mean
 Maybe on Monday he got something to say
 Communication
 Communique
 Communique
 
 Maybe he could talk about the tricks of the trade
 Maybe he could talk about himself
 Maybe he could talk about the money that he made
 Maybe he'd be saying something else
 
 But in the communique you know he's gonna come clean
 Think what he say, say what he mean
 Maybe on Monday he got something to say
 Communication
 Communique
 Communique
 
 And now the rumors are flying
 Speculation rising
 Say that he's been trying someone else's wife
 Somebody at the airport
 Somebody on the phone
 Says he's at the station and he's coming on the noon
 Then we get the story a serious breeze
 And a photograph taken in the hall
 You don't have to worry with the previous release
 Right now, he's saying nothing at all
 But in the communique you know he's gonna come clean
 Think what he say, say what he mean
 Maybe on Monday he got something to say
 Communication

 Lady Writer
 ---- ------
 
 Lady writer on the TV
 Talk about the virgin mary
 Reminded me of you
 Expectation left a come on too
 
 Lady writer on the TV
 She had another quality
 The way you used to look
 And I know you never read a book
 
 Just the way that her hair fell down around her face
 And I recall my fall from grace
 Another time another place
 
 Lady writer on the TV
 She had all her brains and the beauty
 The pictures does not fit
 You'd talk to me when you felt like this
 
 Just the way that her hair fell down around her face
 And I recall my fall from grace
 Another time another place
 
 Your rich old man,
 You know he'd a call her a dead wringer
 You got the same command
 Plus your mother was a mess in life
 
 Just the way that her hair fell down around her face
 And I recall my fall from grace
 Another time another place
 
 Lady writer on the TV
 She knew all about history
 You couldn't hardly write your name
 I think I want it just the same
 
 Lady writer on the TV
 Talking about the virgin mary
 You know I'm talking about you and me
 Lady writer on the TV
 
 Angel of Mercy
 ----- -- -----
 
 Well there's a peter pan moon shepard's delight
 I got to drag in at noon and won the fight
 I want my reward in heaven tonight
 Just like you promised
 
 Angel of Mercy you'll come to no harm
 Angel of Mercy there's no need for alarm
 The knight in his armor wants a night in your arms
 You know he's honest
 
 Angel of Mercy angel delight
 Give me my reward in heaven tonight
 And if I give up my sword won't you give me the right sweet angel
 
 Well now it's too late for talking we can talk later on
 Let the saxaphone play us until the chorus of dawn
 All I need is a little oblivion
 You don't need protection
 
 Here comes the moonlight down on your bed
 Angel of mercy let your heart rule your head
 I don't want your money I want you instead
 Don't need rejection
 
 Angel of Mercy angel delight
 Give me my reward in heaven tonight
 And if I give up my sword won't you give me the right
 Angel of Mercy give me heaven tonight
 
 Well if you cross your heart and spit
 And swear upon the grave of your mother
 You got to get in the hit
 Tell me that I'm your all night lover
 
 Angel of Mercy angel delight
 Give me my reward in heaven tonight
 And if I give up my sword won't you give me the right
 Angel of Mercy give me heaven tonight
 
 Angel of Mercy angel delight
 Give me my reward in heaven tonight
 And if I give up my sword won't you give me the right
 Angel of Mercy give me heaven tonight
 
 Portobello Belle
 ---------- -----
 
 Bella donna's on the highstreet
 Her breasts upon the off beat
 And the stalls are just the side shows
 Victoriano's old clothes
 And yes her jeans are tight now
 She got to travel light now
 She got to turn up all her roots now
 She got to turn up for the boots now
 She thinks she's tough
 She ain't no English rose
 But the blind singer
 He's seen enough and he knows
 Do a song about a long gone Irish girl
 But I got one for you Portobello Belle
 
 She sees a man upon his back there
 Escaping from a sack there
 And Bella donna lingers
 Her gloves aint got no fingers
 The blind man says he Irish
 He gets his money in a tin dish
 Just a corner serinader
 Upon a time he could of made her
 
 She thinks she's tough
 She ain't no English rose
 But the blind singer
 He's seen enough and he knows
 Do a song about a long gone Irish girl
 But I got one for you Portobello Belle
 
 This time a pair a boys are hawking
 And the paraket is squawking
 Upon a truck there is a wino
 She get the crying off the wino
 And then she here the raggy rumble
 Bella donna is in the jungle
 But she is no garden flower
 There is no distress in the tower
 Bella donna walks
 Bella donna taking a stroll
 She don't care about your window box or your button hole
 Sing a song about a long gone Irish girl
 But I got one for you Portobello Belle

 Follow Me Home
 ------ -- ----
 
 Oh well the sun go down
 Celebration in the town tonight
 All day long they been slaughtering upon the stone.
 Share out the meat
 Yeah you really like to eat,
 Now, come on, woman, come, follow me home.
 
 Oh well the priest, he cried
 'Virgin ascending to the skies tonight'
 All day long I've passed my time alone.
 When the church bell rung
 Stayed out on the tower in the dying sun
 Now come on, woman, come, follow me home.
 
 Well I don't need no priest
 But I love all of the people
 Yes, I share the feast
 So drink up more wine, yes, and a song in my bones
 I know the way
 I can see by the moonlight, clear as the day,
 Now, come on, woman, come, follow me home.
