AL STEWART lyrics - Year Of The Cat

Belsize Blues

Original and similar lyrics
The roof started leaking and the stairs were squeaking There was water running down the walls So we took down the carpet, scrubbed down the parquet And the drains overflowed in the hall In the pub across the street it was two feet deep And the chairs were floating away In the Chinese store all the food was on the floor And they were wondering who was going to pay. But it's alright now, she said I'm a little bit tired, a little bit wet But it's alright now, she said Though I believe I have the Belsize Blues. Conrad's bistro, the nights a go-go With people talking over the flood And Jenny from the newsdesk is looking at her shoes Just to see is she's avoided the mud And Annie comes slowly with a pile of ravioli Fried chicken and a soup of the day Moving ‘round the table, she's a little Betty Grable In the way she's got her hair today. But I'm alright now, she said I'm a little bit tired, a little bit wet But I'm alright now, she said Though I believe I got the Belsize Blues. Philadelphia seems like a part of my dreams And I cannot believe that I held the sleeve of her coat But now the night is clear as a chandelier And the trees are turning the water into a moat. We finally got cleared and the neighbours disappeared We were sitting down for a rest When the TV blew and the lights all fused And the wine spilled all over her dress So I lit up a candle, poured up a brandy I was trying to get into a groove And I was kissing her on the chin when the roof fell in And I decided I was going to move. But I'm alright now, she said I'm a little bit tired, a little bit wet But I'm alright now, she said Though I believe I got the Belsize Blues. That's as far as it goes now Well, I don't suppose.

Flyswatter Ice Water Blues (Monte Trenckmann's Blues)

LYLE LOVETT "Joshua Judges Ruth"
(Lyle Lovett) Honey put down that flyswatter And pour me some ice water And would you bring me my hammer And could you find me some nails For soon I'll be going To work for this living And with you here to guide me Then I cannot fail The morning it stumbles Right in through the window And this getting up early Gets old anyway And if you listen close dear The crying that you hear Is the nighttime lamenting The start of the day And it's hotter than concrete In July in Houston And it'll get worse here Before it turns nice But old Tink's in the backyard And I swear that boy's so smart He's got everything ready So we'll be all right So honey put down that flyswatter And pour me some ice water And though I'll soon be going Well I haven't gone yet So come stand here beside me And hold my hand gently And tell me do you remember The first time we met

And I'm tired of eating off of other people's plates And I don't look important so they're telling me to wait Police records said they wouldn't exist I wanna know the meaning of a Christmas list. Said all i wanna do is kick the welfare. All I wanna do is get my share. All I wanna do is make somethin from nothin, It's GC baby and we're workin with somethin. CHORUS We'll be self-made millionares These lives we'll lead without a care, oh yeah And we'll see what we'll be. Everything's gonna be alright now, Everybody say ah yeah that's right. Everything's gonna be alright now, Everybody say it one more time. Everything'll be alright (Tickey Tickey) alright (get up, get up, get up) We'll see you when we get there. We'll see you when we get there. On the video, Or the radio, In the magazines, On the movie screens.

Rainy Day Crossroad Blues

THE DOOBIE BROTHERS "Stampede"
(Tom Johnston) The sky is fallin' and the ground is reachin' up The river's goin' by and the water's gettin' high and I feel like givin' up Standin' in the downpour with these rainy day crossroad blues Got those woods on my left, city on my right, don't wanna sleep alone tonight again Hole in my coat, hole in my shoes, sittin' in Mobile singin' the blues about you Company people call my house most every day Won't let a body concentrate Gotta get some peace that way Waitin' for that water risin', think I'll put my guitar in my boat 'Cause I'm floatin' to the nearest levy just to lay down In that sand Just pickin' wild berries, gettin' stung by honey bees The Lord above and the devil below havin' a fight inside of me Thinkin' ' bout my gun, maybe that will set me free 'Cause thunder and lightnin' are trapped inside of me Innocent darlin' why you treat your daddy this way? The price of the question is a mighty hard price to pay 'Cause you brought these rainy day crossroad blues my way I can't take it no more

It's alright I'll come 'round when you're not in And I'll pick up all my things Everything I have I bought with you But that's alright too It's just everything I do We did together And there's a little piece of you In whatever I've got everything I need I've got petrol in the car I've got some money with me There's just one problem You're the only one I want You're the only one I want You're the only one I want You're the only one I want It's alright I know where I'm going I'm going to stay with my friend Mmm, yes, he is very good looking The only trouble is He's not you He can't do what you do He can't make me laugh and cry At the same time Let's change things Let's danger it up We're crazy enough I just can't take it You're the only one I want You're the only one I want You're the only one I want You're the only one I want I know where I'm going But I don't want to leave I just have one problem We're best friends, yeah?
