Strange Brew (Eric Clapton, Gail Collins and Felix Pappalardi) Unichappell Music (BMI) & Careers-BMG Music Publishing nc. (BMI)

Strange brew -- killin' what's inside of you

She's a witch of trouble in electric blue
In her own mad mind she's in love with you,
With you
Now what you gonna do?
Strange brew -- killin' what's inside of you

She's some kind of demon messin' in the glue
If you don't watch out it'll stick to you
To you
What kind of fool are you?
Strange brew -- killin' what's inside of you

On a boat in the middle of a raging sea
She would make a scene for it all to be
Ignored
And wouldn't you be bored?
Strange brew -- killin' what's inside of you.

Strange brew, strange brew, strange brew, strange brew.
Strange brew -- killin' what's inside of you.

Sunshine of Your Love (Pete Brown) Unichappell Music (BMI)
It's gettin' near dawn
When lights close their tired eyes
I'll soon be with you my love
To give you my dawn surprise
I'll be with you darling soon
I'll be with you when the stars start falling

I've been waiting so long
To be where I'm going
In the sunshine of your love

I'm with you my love
The light's shinin' through on you
Yes, I'm with you my love
It's the morning and just we two
I'll stay with you darling now
I'll stay with you till my seeds are all dried up

I've been waiting so long
To be where I'm going
In the sunshine of your love

I'm with you my love
The light's shinin' through on you
Yes, I'm with you my love
It's the morning and just we two
I'll stay with you darling now
I'll stay with you till my seeds are all dried up

I've been waiting so long
To be where I'm going
In the sunshine of your love

World of Pain (Gail Collins and Felix Pappalardi) Careers-BMG Music Publishing (BMI) & Warner-Tamerlane Publishing Corp. (BMI)
Outside my window is a tree
Outside my window is a tree
There only for me
And it stands in the grey of the city
No time for pity, for the tree or me

There is a world of pain
In the falling rain
Around me

Is there a reason for today?
Is there a reason for today?
Do you remember?
I can hear all the cries of the city
No time for pity for a growing tree

There is a world of pain
In the falling rain
Around me

Outside my window is a tree
Outside my window is a tree
There only for me
And it stands in the grey of the city
No time for pity, for the tree or me

There is a world of pain
In the falling rain
Around me

Dance the Night Away (Pete Brown) Unichappell Music (BMI)
Gonna build myself a castle
High up in the clouds
There'll be skies outside my window
Lose these streets and crowds

Dance the night away

Will find myself an ocean
Sail into the blue
Live with golden swordfish
Forget the time of you

Dance the night away

Dance myself to nothing
Vanish from this place
Gonna turn myself to shadow
So I can't see your face

Dance the night away

Blue Condition (Ginger Baker) Unichappell Music (BMI)
Don't take the wrong direction passing through
Instead of deep reflection of what's true
For it's a combination of judgments made by you
That cause a deep dejection all the way through

No relaxation, no conversation, no variation
In a very dark blue, blue condition

Early rising every day
You must be enterprising in your way
For you will hear no laughter, nor see the sun
Life would be one disaster all the way through

No relaxation, no conversation, no variation
In a very dark blue, blue condition

Don't take the wrong direction passing through
Instead of deep reflection of what's true
For it's a combination of judgments made by you
That cause a deep dejection all the way through

No relaxation, no conversation, no variation
In a very dark blue, blue condition

No relaxation, no conversation, no variation
In a very dark blue, blue condition

Tales of Brave Ulysses(Martin Sharp) Unichappell Music (BMI)
You thought the leaden winter would bring you down forever
But you rode upon a steamer to the violence of the sun

And the colours of the sea bind your eyes with trembling mermaids
And you touch the distant beaches with tales of brave Ulysses
How his naked ears were tortured by the sirens sweetly singing
For the sparkling waves are calling you to kiss their white laced lips

And you see a girl's brown body dancing through the turquoise
And her footprints make you follow where the sky loves the sea
And when your fingers find her, she drowns you in her body
Carving deep blue ripples in the tissues of your mind

The tiny purple fishes run laughing through your fingers
And you want to take her with you to the hard land of the winter

Her name is Aphrodite and she rides a crimson shell
And you know you cannot leave her for you touched the distant sands
With tales of brave Ulysses, how his naked ears were tortured
By the sirens sweetly singing.

The tiny purple fishes run lauging through your fingers
And you want to take her with you to the hard land of the winter

 

 

 

SWLABR (She Walks Like A Bearded Rainbow) (Pete Brown) Unichappell Music (BMI)
Coming to me in the morning, leaving me at night
Coming to me in the morning, leaving me alone
You've got that rainbow feel,
But the rainbow has a beard

Running to me a-cryin', when he throws you out
Running to me a-cryin', on your own again
You've got that pure feel
Such good responses
But the picture has a mustache

You're comin' to me with that soulful look on your face
Coming lookin' like you've never ever done one wrong thing

You're comin' to me with that soulful look on your face
You're comin' lookin' like you've never ever done one wrong thing

So many fantastic colours, I feel in a wonderland
Many fantastic colours, makes me feel so good
You've got that pure feel
Such good responses
Got that rainbow feel
But the rainbow has a beard

We're Going Wrong (Jack Bruce) Unichappell Music (BMI)
Please open your eyes
Try to realise
I found out today we're going wrong
We're going wrong

Please open your mind
See what you can find
I found out today we're going wrong
We're going wrong

Outside Woman Blues (Arthur "Blind Willie" Reynolds) Daywin Music (BMI) admin. by Careers-BMG Music Publishing Inc.
If you lose your money, great God, don't lose your mind
If you lose your money, great God, don't lose your mind
And if you lose your woman, please don't fool with mine

I'm gonna buy me a bulldog, watch my lady whilst I sleep
I'm gonna buy me a bulldog, watch my lady whilst I sleep
'Cos women these days, they're so doggone crooked
That they might make a 'fore day creep

Well, you can't watch your wife and your outside women, too
You know you can't watch your wife and your outside womens, too
'Cos when you're out with your women, your wife will be at home
Cooking your food, doing your dirt, buddy what you trying to do?

You can't watch your wife and your outside womens, too
You know you can't watch your wife and your outside women, too
When you're out with your women, your wife will be at home
Doing your dirt, cooking your food, buddy what you trying to do?

Take It Back (Pete Brown) Unichappell Music (BMI)
Take it back, take it back, take that thing right outa here
Right away, far away, take that thing right outa here

Don't let them take me to where streams are red
I want to stay here and sleep in my own bed
Need all your loving, long blonde hair
Don't let them take me 'cos I easily scare
Take it back, take it back, take that thing right outa here

Take it back, take it back, take that thing right outa here
Right away, far away, take that thing right outa here

I got this great need, the need to stay alive
Not ashamed of my creed, I've got to survive
So come on baby, don't go away
Just let them save me for a rainy day
Take it back, take it back, take that thing right outa here

I got this need, the need to stay alive
Not ashamed of my creed, I've got to survive
So come on baby, don't go away
Just let them save me for a rainy day
Take it back, take it back, take that thing right outa here

Take it back, take it back, take that thing right outa here
Right away, far away, take that thing right outa here

I got this thing, I've got to keep it sharp
Don't go to places where it won't shine in the dark
So come on baby, don't go away
Just let them save me for a rainy day
Take it back, take it back, take that thing right outa here

Mother's Lament (Traditional)  Unichappell Music (BMI)
Are we rollin'? A one, a two, a free, a four...

A mother was washing her baby one night
The youngest of ten and a delicate mite
The mother was poor and the baby was thin
'Twas naught but an skelingtin covered with skin

The mother turned 'round for a soap off the rack
She was only a moment but when she turned back
Her baby had gone, and in anguish she cried
"Oh, where 'as my baby gone?" The angels replied:

Oh, your baby has gone down the plug 'ole
Oh, your baby has gone down the plug
The poor little thing was so skinny and thin
He should 'ave been washed in a jug (in a jug)

Your baby is perfectly happy
He won't need a bath anymore
He's a-muckin' about with the angels above
Not lost but gone before
