Want you to know I'm a man;

Say the word and I'll tell you again;

Wanted to show I'm a man you can rely upon,

That's all I am.


I am a man that you can count on/

I am a man that you can lean on

Call out my name and I'll be there.

I'm a man you can be sure of, baby,

It's your love that takes me there, takes me there.

Wanted to show I'm a man;

Say the words and I'll say it again;

Want you to know I'm a man you can depend upon,

That's all I am.

I'll walk in the rain by your side,

I'll cling to the warmth your hand.

I'll do anything to (keep you satisfied/help you understand)

I'll love you more than anybody can.

And the wind will whisper your name to me.

Little birds will sing along in time.

Leaves will bow down when you walk by,

And morning bells will chime.

I'll be there when you're feelin' down,

To kiss away the tears if you cry

I'll share with you all the happiness I've found;

A reflection of the love in your eyes

And I'll sing you the songs of the rainbow;

A whisper of the joy that is mine

And leaves will bow down when you walk by,

And morning bells will chime.

In the event of something happening to me

There is something I would like you all to see

It's just a photograph of someone that I knew

Have you seen my wife, Mr. Jones?

Do you know what it's like on the outside?

Don't go talking too loud

You'll cause a landslide, Mr. Jones

I keep straining my ears to hear a sound

Maybe someone is digging underground

Or have they given up and all gone home to bed?

Thinking those who once existed must be dead?

4. Danny's Song

This song is popularized by Loggins & Messina. Other songs popularized by Loggins include Footloose, Forever, Meet Me Halfway and many others.

People smile and tell me I'm the lucky one, and we've just begun,

Think I'm gonna have a son.

He will be like she and me, as free as a dove, conceived in love,

Sun is gonna shine above.

And even though we ain't got money, I'm so in love with ya honey,

And everything will bring a chain of love.

And in the morning when I rise, you bring a tear of joy to my eyes,

And tell me everything is gonna be alright.

Seems as though a month ago I beta chi, never got high,

Oh, I was a sorry guy.

And now a smile, a face, a girl that shares my name,

Now I'm through with the game, this boy will never be the same.

Pisces, Virgo rising is a very good sign, strong and kind,

And the little boy is mine.

Now I see a family where there once was none, now we've just begun,

Yeah, we're gonna fly to the sun.

Love the girl who holds the world in a paper cup, drink it up,

Love her and she'll bring you luck.

And if you find she helps your mind, buddy, take her home,

Don't you live alone; try to earn what lovers own.

I'd rather be a sparrow than a snail.

Yes I would. If I could, I surely would.

Yes I would. If I only could, I surely would.

Away, I'd rather sail away

Like a swan that's here and gone

A man gets tied up to the ground

He gives the world

Its saddest sound, its saddest sound

I'd rather be a forest than a street.

Yes I would. If I could, I surely would.

I'd rather feel the earth beneath my feet,

Yes I would. If I only could, I surely would.

A song popularized by The Beatles and was recorded in 1969. The Beatles have popularized scores of songs like Hey Jude, I Wanna Hold Your Hand, Get Back and many more.

Standing in the dock at Southampton,

Trying to get to Holland or France

The man in the Mac said, "You've got to go back"

You know they didn't even give us a chance.

Christ you know it ain't easy,

You know how hard it can be.

The way things are going

They're gonna crucify me.

Finally made the plane into Paris,

Honey mooning down by the Seine

Peter Brown called to say,

"You can make it O.K.,

You can get married in Gibraltar, near Spain".

Drove from Paris to the Amsterdam Hilton,

Talking in our beds for a week

The newspaper said, "Say what you doing in bed?"

I said, "We're only trying to get us some peace"

Saving up your money for a rainy day,

Giving all your clothes to charity

Last night the wife said,

"Oh boy, when you're dead

You don't take nothing with you

But your soul - think"

Made a lightning trip to Vienna,

Eating chocolate cake in a bag

The newspaper said, "She's gone to his head,

They look just like two gurus in drag"

Caught the early plane back to London

Fifty acorns tied in a sack.

The men from the press said, "We wish you success,

It's good to have the both of you back"

You fill up my senses

Like a night in the forest

Like the mountains in springtime

Like a walk in the rain

Like a storm in the desert

Like a sleepy blue ocean

You fill up my senses

Come fill me again

Come let me love you

Let me give my life to you

Let me drown in your laughter

Let me die in your arms

Let me lay down beside you

Let me always be with you

Come let me love you

Come love me again

Oh, my love, my darling

I've hungered for your touch

A long lonely time

And time goes by so slowly

And time can do so much

Are you still mine?

I need your love

I need your love

Godspeed your love to me

Lonely rivers flow to the sea,

To the sea, to the open arms of the sea

Lonely rivers sigh wait for me, wait for me

I'll be coming home wait for me
