Let's Hang On - Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons/Jan and Dean/Johnny Johnson & The Bandwagon/The Darts/Barry Manillow


Let's Hang On

There ain't no good in our goodbye-in'
True love takes a lot of tryin'
Oh, I'm cryin'

Let's hang on to what we've got
Don't let go, girl; we've got a lot
Got a lot of love between us
Hang on, hang on, hang on to what we got
Dooh doo, dooh doo, dooh doo

You say you're gonna go and call it quits
Gonna chuck it all and break our love to bits
I wish you'd never said it, just breakin' up, forget it
Oh, no, we'lll both regret it, just breakin' up, and you'll regret it

That little chip of diamond on your hand
Ain't a fortune, baby, but you know it stands
A love to tie and bind ya, just for your love, the love babe
We just can't leave behind us, only the love, just for the love babe
Baby, don't you go
Baby, oh no no
Think it over and stay

Let's hang on to what we've got
Don't let go, girl; we've got a lot
Got a lot of love between us
Hang on, hang on, hang on, to what we've got
Dooh doo, dooh doo, dooh doo

There isn't anything I wouldn't do
I'd pay the price to get in good with you
Give me a second turnin'
Then patch it up, come get it
Don't cool off when Im burnin'
Then patch it up, you won't regret it

You've got me cryin', dyin' at your door
Don't shut me out, ooh let me in once more
Your arms I need to hold you
Then open up and mend it
Your heart, oh girl I love you
Just open up, then you will mend it
Baby, don't you go
Baby, oh, no, no

Let's hang on to what we've got
Don't let go, girl; we've got a lot
Got a lot of love between us
Hang on, hang on, hang on, to what we've got
Dooh doo, dooh doo, dooh doo

Hangin' on to what we got
(let's hang on)
Let's hang on to what we got
(we're hangin' on)
Hangin' on to what we got
(let's hang on)
Let's hang on to what we got
(we're hangin' on)
Hangin' on to what we got
Let's hang on-on-on

Let's hang on to what we've got
Don't let go, girl; we've got a lot
Got a lot of love between us
Hang on, hang on, hang on, to what we've got
Dooh doo, dooh doo, dooh doo

Migration - Ted Nugent and The Amboy Dukes


Migration

More/Ti Guardero' nel Cuore - Nino Oliviero & Riz Ortolani/Katyna Ranieri/Vic Dana/Bobby Darin/Doris Day/Connie Francis/Nat King Cole/Frank Sinatra and Count Basie/Aretha Franklin/Andy Williams/Gene Pitney/The Supremes/Tom Jones/Engelbert Humperdinck


More
More than the greatest love the world has known
This is the love I'll give to you alone
More than the simple words I try to say
I only live to love you more each day

More than you'll ever know my arms long to hold you so
My life will be in your keeping, waking, sleeping, laughing, weeping
Longer than always is long long time,
But far beyond forever you'll be mine

I know I never lived before and my heart is very sure
No one else could love you more

I know I never lived before and my heart is very sure
No one else could love you more
Ti Guardero'nel Cuore

My Mind's Eye - The Small Faces/The Jam


My Mind's Eye

I’m sitting here every day looking at the sky
Ever wondering why I dream my dreams away
And I’m living for today in my mind’s eye

Things are clearer than before,
Showing me the way, asking me to stay
I’ll never close the door
To all these things and more in my mind’s eye

Everybody I know says I’ve changed, yeah
Laughing behind their hands
I think they're strange

People running everywhere, running through my life
I couldn’t give a care because theyll never see
All that I can see with my mind’s eye

Ah, ah, in my mind’s eye

Oh Well - Peter Green/Lindsey Buckingham/Rick Vito and The Fleetwood Mac/The Glorious Space/Sreburnite Grivni/The Crood/The Hot Boogie Chillun/The Rockets/Mike Gordon Leo Kottke/Chico Arnez/Michael Schenker and The Ratt/McCoy/The Ventures

Note: I won't go thru others later than 90s
Oh Well
I can't help about the shape I'm in
I can't sing, I ain't pretty and my legs are thin
But don't ask me what I think of you
I might not give the answer that you want me to
Oh, well
Now, when I talked to God I knew he'd understand
He said, "Stick by my side and I'll be your guiding hand
But don't ask me what I think of you
I might not give the answer that you want me to"
Oh, well

Chestnut Mare - Roger McGuinn and The Byrds/The Mock Turtles


Chestnut Mare
Always alone never with a herd
Prettiest mare I’ve ever seen
You’ll have to take my word

I’m gonna’ catch that horse if I can
And when I do I’ll give her my brand

Well I was up on stony ridge after this chestnut mare
I’d been chasin’ her for weeks
Oh, I’d catch a glimpse of her every once in a while
Takin’ her meal, or bathin
A fine lady

This one day I happened to be real close to her
I saw her standin’ over there
So I snuck up to her nice and easy
And I got my rope out
And I flung it in the air

I’m gonna’ catch that horse if I can
And when I do I’ll give her my brand
And we’ll be friends for life
She’ll be just like a wife
I’m gonna’ catch that horse if I can

Well I got her, and I’m pullin’ on her, she’s pullin’ back
Like a mule goin’ up a ladder
I take this chance and I jump up on her
Damned if I don’t land right on top of her
Well she takes off, runnin’ up on to that ridge
Higher than I’ve ever been before
She’s runnin’ along just fine, till she stops
Something spooked her
It’s a sidewinder, all coiled and ready to strike
She doesn’t know what to do for a second
But then she jumps off the edge
Me holding on

Above the clouds
Higher than eagles were gliding
Suspended in the sky

Over the moon
Straight for the sun we were riding
My eyes were filled with light

Behind us black walls
Below us a bottomless canyon
Floating with no sound

Gulls far below
Seemed to be suddenly rising
Exploding all around

I’m gonna’ catch that horse if I can
And when I do I’ll give her my brand
And we’ll be friends for life
She’ll be just like a wife
I’m gonna’ catch that horse if I can

And we were falling down this crevice, about a mile down
I’d say! I look down and I see this red thing below us
It’s our reflection in a little pool of water
About six feet wide, and one foot deep
And we’re comin’ up real fast
Crawling down right through it
We hit and we splashed it dry
That’s when I lost my hold and she got away
But I’m gonna’ try to get her again some day

I’m gonna’ catch that horse if I can
And when I do I’ll give her my brand
And we’ll be friends for life
She’ll be just like a wife
I’m gonna’ catch that horse (2x)
I’m gonna’ catch that horse if I can (2x)

Point Me at the Sky - The Pink Floyd/The Acid Casualities


Point Me at the Sky
Hey, Eugene,
This is Henry McClean
And I've finished my beautiful flying machine
And I'm ringing to say
That I'm leaving and maybe
You'd like to fly with me
And hide with me, baby

Isn't it strange
How little we change
Isn't it sad we're insane
Playing the games that we know and in tears
The games we've been playing for thousands and thousands and

Pointing to the cosmic glider
"Pull this plastic glider higher
Light the fuse and stand right back"
He cried "This is my last goodbye."

Point me at the sky and tell it fly (3x)

And if you survive till two thousand and five
I hope you're exceedingly thin
For if you are stout, you will have to breathe out
While the people around you breathe in

People pressing on might say
It's something that I hate to say
I'm slipping down to eat the ground
A little refuge on my brain

Point me at the sky and tell it fly (3x)

And all we've got to say to you is goodbye
It's time to go, better run and get your bags, it's goodbye
Nobody cry, it's goodbye
Crash, crash, crash, crash, goodbye

I Should Have Known Better - The Beatles/The Naturals/Johnny Rivers/The Beachboys/The Skatalites/Los Mustang



I Should Have Known Better
I should have known better with a girl like you
That I would love everything that you do
And I do, hey, hey, hey, and I do.
Whoa, whoa, I never realized what a kiss could be
This could only happen to me;
Can't you see, can't you see
That when I tell you that I love you, oh,
You're gonna say you love me too, hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo, oh,
And when I ask you to be mine,
You're gonna say you love me too.

So, I should have realized a lot of things before
If this is love, you've gotta give me more
Give me more, hey, hey, hey, give me more
Whoa, whoa, I never realized what a kiss could be
This could only happen to me
Can't you see, can't you see
That when I tell you that I love you, oh
You're gonna say you love me too, oh
And when I ask you to be mine,
You're gonna say you love me too,
You love me too (2x)
