Johnny Clegg Savuka lyrics - Scatterlings

Kwela Man

Original and similar lyrics
Long ago there was a sound in the night A Kwela man singing under the street light With a cheap guitar he gave his sorrow a smile And he sowed his songs in the alley ways mile upon mile Chorus Ye hum ho la lo Kwela man Ye hum ho la lo Kwela man Ye hum ho la lo Kwela man You gave it your life Living low with the pennywhistle-tea-chest-base-gang I followed him home and he danced as he sang But now he's gone Not even the slightest traces Of a Kwela song And the street is full of empty spaces Chorus Nobody knows did he survive the winding road Did he find a song that took him back to the heartland Here I stand lost in a memory Of a Kwela man singing in the long gone twilight Chorus When I followed you home Kwela man You filled my soul, Kwela Kwela When you sang your song Kwela man You gave it your life Ye hum ho la lo Kwela man Ye hum ho la lo Kwela man Ye hum ho la lo Kwela man You gave it your life

Now That I Have You

The Company
All my life it seemed That something had been missing I didn't know what to do Days would pass me by Each as lonely as the other Until I met you REFRAIN: You opened the door And let the sunshine in My life will never be the same again CHORUS: Now that I have you Everything just seems so right Now that I have you I'm alive You are the song that I'll be Singing my whole life through I'm living in a brighter world Now that I have you Looking ahead I see The two of us together I'll never let you go You're so dear to me And it isn't any wonder Why I love you so REFRAIN: You opened the door And let the sunshine in My life will never be the same again CHORUS: Now that I have you Everything just seems so right Now that I have you I'm alive You are the song that I'll be Singing my whole life through I'm living in a brighter world Now that I have you BRIDGE: I feel this love is real I see it in your eyes You take my hand and I understand You are mine You are mine CHORUS: Now that I have you Everything just seems so right Now that I have you I'm alive You are the song that I'll be Singing my whole life through I'm living in a brighter world Now that I have you

Silent Night, All Day Long

JOHN PRINE "John Prine Christmas"
There's a pine tree in a window in a house on a hill With a tree top angel sitting perfectly still She's watching the shoppers walk through the snow With their arms full of treasures and hearts all aglow Chorus: We held hands and stared at the lights on the tree As if Christmas was invented for you and for me When the angel on the treetop requested a song We sang Silent Night All Day Long There's a family thats gathered in some living room Dinner on the table that's been cooking since noon Stockings on the mantle are hanging with care While every body is saying a prayer repeat chorus There's a room out there somewhere with a woman in a chair With memories of childhood still lingering there. How pretty the paper, the lights and the snow. How precious those memories of long long ago. repeat chorus When the angel on the treetop requested a song. We sang Silent Night all day long

Billy The Kid

Guthrie Woody
Billy The Kid I'll sing you a true song of Billy the Kid, I'll sing of the desperate deeds that he did, Way out in New Mexico, long long ago When a man's only chance was his own 44. When Billy the Kid was a very young lad In the old Silver City he went to the bad Way out in the West with a gun in his hand At the age of twelve years he first killed his man. Fair Mexican maidens play guitars and sing A song about Billy, the boy bandit king How ere his young manhood had reached its sad end He'd a notch on his pistol for twenty-one men. 'Twas on the same night when poor Billy died He said to his friends: I am not satisfied. There are twenty-one men I have put bullets through And sheriff Pat Garrett must make twenty-two. Now this is how Billy the Kid met his fate, The bright moon was shining, the hour was late Shot down by Pat Garrett, who once was his friend The young outlaw's life had now come to its end. There's many a man with a face fine and fair Who starts out in life with a chance to be square, But just like poor Billy he wanders astray And loses his life in the very same way. Note: This song -- a pretty good one, I think -- is remembered mainly because Woody Guthrie used the tune for the verse of So Long, It's Been Good to Know You.

I'll Be OK

AESOP ROCK "Float"
[Slug] Burn it down... Pad the circles 'round your life To capture all the sides you sight Magic tricks where skeptics sink The ice is thin, stay off the lake Waiting for a clock to punch Wish I could breathe and stop for lunch If I stop tocount the leaves on one of these here trees Not sure that I know what's pure Born to kill the insecure Some respect, some resent, some remain from start to end Wear my heart on my short sleeves I'm stuck out here, I lost my keys From the roof I watch the street And pray for those that's caught beneath [Chorus--Slug and Aesop] 2x As long as I know right from wrong I'll be ok, I'll sing my songs [Slug] I dunno what I have to left To give other than truth and breath Angel when she shuts her eyes Like we will leave to my demise Between my time is short About to start my last resort Wake me up when it's time to make babies Talkin planet earthquakes Tied the laces, touch the ground Let emotions ruptured now As long as I know right from wrong, I'll be ok I'll sing my songs Chorus 4x [Aesop Rock] I wanna lift every yellowbrick I never felt pressure to have to justify my selfishness At least not to your and yours Maybe just my friends and fellowships As long as the mood is somehow linked to my enhanced development I swear they'll understand!!! There's a storm outside my tenament Beats upon my windows with Mother Nature's adrenaline I guess that's why my homey Blockhead stays glued to the television Now I look less intelligent Cuz I'm the one that tried to bear the elements and lost Well it's warm by the filament Huddled up close in the company of all my relatives Stories lash like coffee and honest-to-God sentiment Cucooned in the unified efforts to all get settled in Away from where the rain pours! Well count your delegates Weed out the bums who practice migration under the elegant Of course I realize to fill the ring, procedure's delicate But lead devils inside to collide with your overzealousness And fall to rock bottom Spot em with their carelessness The urge could burst to turn even those hazardous to militant You can't even have half of free second The beat comes gelatin You gotta aim, fire and the spider be model veteran Buried in merit badges I'm stuck in the center and could care less About the eye of the storm and its monstrous measurements I got a defense that I call coolin with my brethren Sometimes I get wet But it's better than risking life and limb to me, don't you agree? Chorus 4x [Aesop Rock] *repeat to fade* If you wanna push, than I'm ready to push But if you pulling while I'm pushing Then why did you ask me to push?

Life Is A Long Song

JETHRO TULL "Living In The Past"
When you're falling awake and you take stock of the new day, and you hear your voice croak as you choke on what you need to say, well, don't you fret, don't you fear, I will give you good cheer. Life's a long song. Life's a long song. Life's a long song. If you wait then your plate I will fill. As the verses unfold and your soul suffers the long day, and the twelve o'clock gloom spins the room, you struggle on your way. Well, don't you sigh, don't you cry, lick the dust from your eye. Life's a long song. Life's a long song. Life's a long song. We will meet in the sweet light of dawn. As the Baker Street train spills your pain all over your new dress, and the symphony sounds underground put you under duress, well don't you squeal as the heel grinds you under the wheel. Life's a long song. Life's a long song. Life's a long song. But the tune ends too soon for us all.
