Hang down your head Tom Dooley
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head Tom Dooley
Poor boy you’re bound to die.

I met her on the mountain
And there I took her life
I met her on the mountain
And stubbed her with my knife.

Hang down your head Tom Dooley
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head Tom Dooley
Poor boy you’re bound to die.

This time tomorrow
Reckon where I’ll be
Hadn’t it been Fort Grason
I’d been in Tennessee.

Hang down your head Tom Dooley
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head Tom Dooley
Poor boy you’re bound to die.

This time tomorrow
Reckon where I’ll be
In some lonesome valley
A hangin’ on a white oak tree.

Hang down your head Tom Dooley
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head Tom Dooley
Poor boy you’re bound to die…

El Condor Pasa

I’d rather be a sparrow than a snail
Yes I would
If I could, I surely would
Hmm mmm

I’d rather be a hammer than a nail
Yes I would
If I only could, I surely would
Hmm mmm

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
Hmm mmm

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

Paul Simon and Arthur Garfunkel – El Condor Pasa (If I Could) Live

Sounds of silence

Save pagePDF pagePrint page

Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted
In my brain still remains
Within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of
A neon light that split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share and no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence

Fools said I, you do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon God they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the signs said, ‘The words of the prophets
Are written on the subway walls and tenement halls’
And whispered in the sounds of silence

"The Sound of Silence- original version – Simon and Garfunkel

Hallelujah

Now I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
It goes like this the fourth, the fifth,
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
 

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

 
Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah
 
Hallelujah
 
You’ll say I’ve took the name in vain,
But I dont even know the name,
But if I did, well, really whats it to you?
There’s a blaze of light in every word
It doesnt matter which you heard
the holy or the broken Hallelujah
 
Hallelujah
 
I did my best, it wasnt much
I couldnt feel, so I tried to touch
I’ve told the truth, I didnt come to fool you.
And even though it all went wrong,
I’ll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my *tongue* but Hallelujah
 
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

HALLELUJAH – Leonard Cohen by World Idol Kurt Nilsen + LYRICS

Always look on the bright side of life

Save pagePDF pagePrint page

Some things in life are bad
They can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse
When you’re chewing on life’s gristle
Don’t grumble, give a whistle
And this’ll help things turn out for the best…
And…

REFREIN:
Always look on the bright side of life…
(Whistle -Whistle)
(2X)

If life seems jolly rotten
There’s something you’ve forgotten
And that’s to laugh and smile and dance and sing
When you’re feeling in the dumps
Don’t be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle
– that’s the thing.

REFREIN:
Always look on the bright side of life…

For life is quite absurd
And death’s the final word
You must always face the curtain
with a bow
Forget about your sin – give the
audience a grin
Enjoy it – it’s your last chance
anyhow.

REFREIN:
Always look on the bright side of death…
Just before you draw your terminal breath…

Life’s a piece of shit,
when you look at it
Life’s a laugh and death’s a joke, it’s true
You’ll see its all a show,
keep ‘em laughin as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you

REFREIN:
Always look on the bright side of life…

REFREIN:
Always look on the bright side of life…

C’mon Brian, cheer up
Worse things happen at sea you know.
I mean – what have you got to lose?
You know, you come from nothing
– you’re going back to nothing.
What have you lost? Nothing.
Nothing will come from nothing
ya know what they say?
Cheer up ya old bugga
c’mon give us a grin!
There ya go, see!

My Bonnie is over the ocean

My Bonnie is over the ocean.
My Bonnie is over the sea.
My Bonnie is over the ocean.
O bring back my Bonnie to me.

REFREIN:
Bring back, bring back
Bring back my Bonnie to me, to me
Bring back, bring back
O bring back my Bonnie to me.

O blow ye wind over the ocean,
O blow ye wind over the sea,
O blow ye wind over the ocean,
And bring back my Bonnie to me.

Last night as I lay on my pillow,
Last night as I lay on my bed,
Last night as I lay on my pillow,
I dreamed that my Bonnie was dead.

The winds have blown over the ocean,
The winds have blown over the sea,
The winds have blown over the ocean,
And brought back my Bonnie to me.

Wat zullen we drinken zeven dagen lang?
Wat zullen we drinken, wat een dorst! (x2)

Er is genoeg voor iedereen!
Dus drinken we samen, sla het vat maar aan!
Ja drinken we samen, niet alleen! (x2)

Dan zullen we werken zeven dagen lang,
dan zullen we weken voor elkaar. (x2)

Dan is er werk voor iedereen!
Dus werken we samen, zeven dagen lang,
ja werken we samen, niet alleen. (x2)

Eerst moeten we vechten niemand weet hoelang,
eerst moeten we vechten voor ons belang. (x2)

Voor het geluk van iedereen!
Dus vechten we samen, samen staan we sterk,
ja vechten we samen niet alleen. (x2)

Jet Plane

All my bags are packed, I’m ready to go.
I’m standing here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say Goodbye

But the dawn is breaking it’s early morn
The taxi’s waiting he’s blowin’ his horn
Already I’m so lonesome I could die

 
REFREIN:
So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
Hold me like you’ll never let me go
‘cause I’m leaving on a Jet Plane
Don’t know when I’ll be back again
Oh babe I hate to go

There’s so many times I’ve let you down
So many times I’ve played around
I tell you now THAT they don’t mean a thing

Everyplace I go I’ll think of you
Every song I sing I’ll sing for you
When I come back I’ll bring your wedding ring

 
REFREIN

Now the time has come to leave you
One more time let me kiss you
Close your eyes I’ll be on my way

Dream about the days to come
When I won’t have to leave alone
About the times I won’t have to say…

Dit liedje gaat over een kalf dat een zwaluw wilt worden… zijn drang naar vrijheid.

On a wagon bound for market
there’s a calf with a mournful eye.
High above him there’s a swallow,
winging swiftly through the sky.

How the winds are laughing,
they laugh with all their might.
Laugh and laugh the whole day through,
and half the summer’s night.
Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna; Donna, Donna, Donna, Don.
Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna; Donna, Donna, Donna, Don.

“Stop complaining!” said the farmer,
“Who told you a calf to be?
Why don’t you have wings to fly with,
like the swallow so proud and free?”

How the winds are laughing,
they laugh with all their might.
Laugh and laugh the whole day through,
and half the summer’s night.
Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna; Donna, Donna, Donna, Don.
Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna; Donna, Donna, Donna, Don.

Calves are easily bound and slaughtered,
never knowing the reason why.
But whoever treasures freedom,
like the swallow has learned to fly.

[Chorus:]
How the winds are laughing,
they laugh with all their might.
Laugh and laugh the whole day through,
and half the summer’s night.
Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna; Donna, Donna, Donna, Don.
Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna; Donna, Donna, Donna, Don.

Joan Baez ~ Donna, Donna
