ALABAMA lyrics - Alabama Christmas

Joseph And Mary's Boy

Original and similar lyrics
Out here is the country there's magic in the air. It's the middle of December there's excitement eveywhere Everyone's invited, the celebration's planned The gift is just what's in your heart And not what's in your hand Who's the one we need to thanks Who's the party for Who's the one responsible for all this peace and joy Who deserves the credit for the blessings we enjoy Preacher said last Sunday it was Joesph and Mary's boy There were times we didn't think We'd make it through the year The bankers tried to take our farms But somehow we're still here I don't know how our crops survived The drought and then the rain It must have been a miracle How else could you explain And who's the one we need to thanks And who's the party for And who's the one responsible for all this peace and joy And who deserves the credit for the blessings we enjoy Preacher said last Sunday it was Joesph and Mary's boy The Christ Child born in Bethlehem Joesph and Mary's boy Everyone's invited, the celebration's planned The gift is just what's in your heart And not what's in your hand...

We Shall Overcome

JOAN BAEZ "Joan Baez In Concert, Part 2"
WE SHALL OVERCOME Words and Music by Zilphia Hart., Frank Hamilton, Guy Carawan and Pete Seeger (La melodia sembra sia stata tratta da un canto di pescatori siciliani del 17' secolo, trasportata in Germania dove è diventata un inno protestante, e da qui alle congregazioni “bianche” protestanti degli Stati Uniti del sud. E' stata pubblicata per la prima volta come Inno negro in una versione modificata, nei primi anni dello scorso secolo. Usata, nella forma attuale, negli anni ‘40 come inno “sindacale” dai lavoratori degli Alimentari e del Tabacco del Sud-Carolina, e successivamente dai lavoratori delle scuole popolari del Tennessee. E' usata tradizionalmente per chiudere tutti i congressi integrazionisti). We shall overcome, We shall overcome, We shall overcome, some day. Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe We shall overcome, some day. We'll walk hand in hand, We'll walk hand in hand, We'll walk hand in hand, some day. Oh, deep in my heart, We shall live in peace, We shall live in peace, We shall live in peace, some day. Oh, deep in my heart, We shall all be free, We shall all be free, We shall all be free, some day. Oh, deep in my heart, We are not afraid, We are not afraid, We are not afraid, TODAY Oh, deep in my heart, We shall overcome, We shall overcome, We shall overcome, some day. Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe We shall overcome, some day.

Who Invited You?

The Donnas
I'm busy talkin' to this guy When I see outta the corner of my eye... Look who's here, how you doin'. Why don't you tell me who let you in? [Chorus] We don't care if you think our party's cool 'Cause we do! And we don't care if you had more fun in Sunday School 'Cause who invited you? Who invited you? Who invited you? What do I have to do to get rid of you? Who invited you? You say you're everyone's best friend But last night you made fun of all them You never told me not to tell... You trusted me, but you don't know me that well! [Chorus] We don't care if you think our party's cool 'Cause we do! And we don't care if you had more fun in Sunday School 'Cause who invited you? Who invited you? Who invited you? What do I have to do to get rid of you? Who invited you? Who invited you? Who invited you? What do I have to do to get rid of you? Who invited you? Face it dude, you can't beat me In your Charlie Brown shirt and Cavariccis. Baby, you come up to my waist You need a barstool to get up in my face... [Chorus] We don't care if you think our party's cool 'Cause we do! And we don't care if you had more fun in Sunday School 'Cause who invited you? Who invited you? Who invited you? What do I have to do to get rid of you? Who invited you? Who invited you? Who invited you? What do I have to do to get rid of you? Who invited you?

Make Believe

JJ HELLER "Only Love Remains"
You said you couldn't keep me when you were seventeen Too young to be a father You kissed my hand and took your leave And you taught me how to make believe Make believe I was a gift to you from heaven Make believe that you would take me as your own Make believe that you would set the mark of what a man should be You taught me how to make believe And now that I've grown older I long for us to meet I have a million questions But most of all I want to see If all of it was make believe Another year has come and gone I am living with your family And I feel right at home In the place where I always wanted to be I'm going out this evening I check the mirror twice You stop me on the staircase You kiss my hand and say that I look beautiful tonight And I believe I was a gift to you from heaven And I believe that you would take me as your own I believe that you set the mark of what a man should be Now I don't have to make believe

When I Was Your Man

JASMINE THOMPSON "Bundle Of Tantrums"
Same bed but it feels just a little bit bigger now Our song on the radio but it don't sound the same When our friends talk about you, all it does is just tear me down 'Cause my heart breaks a little when I hear your name It all just sounds like oooooh… Mmm, too young, too dumb to realize That I should've bought you flowers And held your hand Should've gave you all my hours When I had the chance Take you to every party 'Cause all you wanted to do was dance Now my baby's dancing But she's dancing with another man My pride, my ego, my needs, and my selfish ways Caused a good strong woman like you to walk out my life Now I never, never get to clean up the mess I made, ohh… And it haunts me every time I close my eyes It all just sounds like oooooh… Mmm, too young, too dumb to realize That I should've bought you flowers And held your hand Should've gave you all my hours When I had the chance Take you to every party 'Cause all you wanted to do was dance Now my baby's dancing But she's dancing with another man Although it hurts I'll be the first to say that I was wrong Oh, I know I'm probably much too late To try and apologize for my mistakes But I just want you to know I hope he buys you flowers I hope he holds your hand Give you all his hours When he has the chance Take you to every party 'Cause I remember how much you loved to dance Do all the things I should have done When I was your man Do all the things I should have done When I was your man

Emaline

THE JEFF HEALEY BAND "Adventures In Jazzland"
Can't you hear my heart Whispering through your window Emaline Don't you think that it's about time For me and you to meet Have you told your friends, dear Have you told your people Emaline Then hurry up to drop them a line About our wedding to be In the church there's an old bell ringer And he's just waiting for the time When I put my ring on your finger And making you mine Now, all I do is wait For that sunday morning sun to shine When I'm gonna walk down the line Hand in hand with Emaline Evening breezes hum their lullaby There's a million candles in the sky I put on my Sunday suit of blue Emaline, just for you Now I'm standing at your garden gate And the village clock is striking eight Hurry up Hurry down Honey, don't be late
