AMERICAN PIE (written by Don McLean) A long, long time ago I can still remember How that music used to make me smile And I knew that if I had my chance I could make those people dance And maybe they'd be happy for a while Did you write the book of love And do you have faith in God above If the Bible tells you so Now do you believe in rock 'n roll And can music save your mortal soul And can you teach me how to dance real slow Well I know that you're in love with him 'Cause I saw you dancin' in the gym You both kicked off your shoes [both kicked off your shoes] Man, I dig those rhythm 'n blues I was a lonely teenage broncin' buck With a pink carnation and a pickup truck But I knew that I was out of luck The day the music died I started singin' Chorus: Bye bye Miss American Pie Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry And good ol' boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye Singin', "This will be the day that I die, This will be the day that I die." I met a girl who sang the blues And I asked her for some happy news But she just smiled and turned away Well I went down to the sacred store Where I'd heard the music years before But the man there said the music wouldn't play Well now in the streets the children screamed [the children screamed] The lovers cried and the poets dreamed [the poets dreamed] But not a word was spoken [not a word was spoken] The church bells all were broken And the three men I admire the most The Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost They caught the last train for the coast The day the music died We start singin' (chorus, repeat) We started singin' (repeat 3 times) BEAUTIFUL STRANGER (written by Madonna and William Orbit) Haven't we met You're some kind of beautiful stranger You could be good for me I've had the taste for danger If I'm smart then I'll run away But I'm not so I guess I'll stay Heaven forbid I'll take my chance on a beautiful stranger I looked into your eyes And my world came tumbling down You're the devil in disguise That's why I'm singing this song Bridge: To know you is to love you You're everywhere I go And everybody knows To love you is to be part of you I've paid for you with tears And swallowed all my pride Chorus: Da-da-da-dum da-dum da-dum da da da-da dum Beautiful stranger Da-da-da-dum da-dum da-dum da da da-da dum Beautiful stranger If I'm smart then I'll run away But I'm not so I guess I'll stay Haven't you heard I fell in love with a beautiful stranger I looked into your face My heart was dancing all over the place I'd like to change my point of view If I could just forget about you (bridge) I looked into your eyes And my world came tumbling down You're the devil in disguise That's why I'm singing this song to you (bridge) I've paid for you with tears And swallowed all my pride (chorus) CRAZY FOR YOU (written by John Bettis and Jon Lind) Swaying room as the music starts Strangers making the most of the dark Two by two their bodies become one I see you through the smokey air Can't you feel the weight of my stare You're so close but still a world away What I'm dying to say, is that Chorus: I'm crazy for you Touch me once and you'll know it's true I never wanted anyone like this It's all brand new, you'll feel it in my kiss I'm crazy for you, crazy for you Trying hard to control my heart I walk over to where you are Eye to eye we need no words at all Slowly now we begin to move Every breath I'm deeper into you Soon we two are standing still in time If you read my mind, you'll see (chorus) It's all brand new, I'm crazy for you And you know it's true I'm crazy, crazy for you RAIN (written by M. Ciccone and Shep Pettibone) I feel it, it's coming Chorus: Rain, feel it on my finger tips Hear it on my window pane Your love's coming down like Rain, wash away my sorrow Take away my pain Your love's coming down like rain When your lips are burning mine And you take the time to tell me how you feel When you listen to my words And I know you've heard, I know it's real Rain is what this thunder brings For the first time I can hear my heart sing Call me a fool but I know I'm not I'm gonna stand out here on the mountain top Till I feel your (chorus) When you looked into my eyes And you said goodbye could you see my tears When I turned the other way Did you hear me say I'd wait for all the dark clouds bursting in a perfect sky You promised me when you said goodbye That you'd return when the storm was done And now I'll wait for the light, I'll wait for the sun Till I feel your (chorus) Here comes the sun, here comes the sun And I say, never go away (Spoken:) Waiting is the hardest thing [It's strange I feel like I've known you before] I tell myself that if I believe in you [And I want to understand you] In the dream of you [More and more] With all my heart and all my soul [When I'm with you] That by sheer force of will [I feel like a magical child] I will raise you from the ground [Everything strange] And without a sound you'll appear [Everything wild] And surrender to me, to love Rain is what the thunder brings For the first time I can hear my heart sing Call me a fool but I know I'm not I'm gonna stand out here on the mountain top Till I feel your Rain, I feel it, it's coming Your love's coming down like (repeat) (chorus) Rain, I feel it, it's coming Your love's coming down like (repeat) Rain [I'll stand out on the mountaintop And wait for you to call my name] Rain SOMETHING TO REMEMBER (written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard) Seems I've played the game for much too long I let people buy my love and I Never got to sing my songs for you. I had all my bets laid all on you Set your stakes too high, you're bound to lose. In the game of love you pay your dues. Say that happiness cannot be measured, And a little pain can bring you all life's little pleasures. What a joke. Chorus: I was not your woman, I was not your friend, But you gave me something to remember. No other man said love yourself Nobody else can. We weren't meant to be, At least not in this lifetime, But you gave me something to remember. I hear you still say, "Love yourself". I had all my bets laid all on you Set your stakes too high, you're bound to lose. In the game of love I've paid my dues. Guess I'm waiting for my place in your sun, Wish I had the chance to know you and it wasn't stormy weather. What a shame, who's to blame? (chorus) THE POWER OF GOODBYE (written by Madonna and Rick Nowels) Your heart is not open so I must go The spell has been broken, I loved you so Freedom comes when you learn to let go Creation comes when you learn to say no You were my lesson I had to learn I was your fortress you had to burn Pain is a warning that something's wrong I pray to God that it won't be long Do ya wanna go higher? Chorus: There's nothing left to try There's no place left to hide There's no greater power Than the power of good-bye Your heart is not open so I must go The spell has been broken, I loved you so You were my lesson I had to learn I was your fortress Chorus2: There's nothing left to lose There's no more heart to bruise There's no greater power Than the power of good-bye Learn to say good-bye I yearn to say good-bye (chorus, substituting "no more places" for "no place left") (chorus2)
