The Who-Pinball Wizard

1993

 

LYRICS

Ever since I was a young boy,
I’ve played the silver ball.
From Soho down to Brighton
I must’ve played them all.
But I never seen anything like him
In any amusement hall…
That deaf, dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pinball!
He stands like a statue,
Becomes part of the machine.
Feeling all the bumpers,
Always playing clean.
He plays by intuition,
The digit counters fall.
That deaf, dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pinball!
He’s a pinball wizard.
There has to be a twist.
A pinball wizard’s got
Such a supple wrist.
How do you think he does it?
I don’t know!
What makes him so good?
He ain’t got no distractions,
Can’t hear no buzzers and bells.
Don’t see no lights a flashin’,
Plays by sense of smell,
Always has a replay,
An’ never tilts at all…
That deaf, dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pinball!
He’s a pinball wizard.
There has to be a twist.
A pinball wizard’s got
Such a supple wrist.
Even at my favorite table
He can beat my best.
His disciples lead him in
And he just does the rest.
He’s got crazy flipper fingers,
Never seen him fall…
That deaf, dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pinball!!!

 

GLORIA… SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER

Laura Branigan – Gloria (Official Music Video)

1982 GLORIA

 

LYRICS:

Gloria, you’re always on the run now
Running after somebody, you gotta get him somehow
I think you’ve got to slow down before you start to blow it
I think you’re headed for a breakdown. So, be careful not to show it

You really don’t remember, was it something that he said?
Are the voices in your head calling, Gloria?

Gloria, don’t you think you’re falling?
If everybody wants you, why isn’t anybody calling?
You don’t have to answer
Leave them hangin’ on the line
Oh-oh-oh, calling Gloria

Gloria (Gloria), I think they got your number (Gloria)
I think they got the alias (Gloria) that you’ve been living under (Gloria)
But you really don’t remember, was it something that they said?
Are the voices in your head calling, Gloria?

A-ha-ha, a-ha-ha, Gloria, how’s it gonna go down?
Will you meet him on the main line, or will you catch him on the rebound?
Will you marry for the money, take a lover in the afternoon?
Feel your innocence slipping away, don’t believe it’s comin’ back soon

And you really don’t remember, was it something that he said?
Are the voices in your head calling, Gloria?

Gloria, don’t you think you’re falling?
If everybody wants you, why isn’t anybody calling?
You don’t have to answer
Leave them hangin’ on the line
Oh-oh-oh, calling Gloria

Gloria (Gloria), I think they got your number (Gloria)
I think they got the alias (Gloria) that you’ve been living under (Gloria)
But you really don’t remember, was it something that they said?
Are the voices in your head calling, Gloria?

(Gloria, Gloria, Gloria, Gloria, Gloria)
(Gloria, Gloria, Gloria, Gloria, Gloria)

Heard It In A Love Song by The Marshall Tucker Band (from Carolina Dreams)

1984

 

LYRICS

I ain’t never been with a woman long enough, for my boots to get old
We’ve been together so long now they both need to be sewed
If I ever settle down you’d be my kind
And it’s a good time for me to head on down the line
Heard it in a love song
Heard it in a love song
Heard it in a love song
Can’t be wrong
I’m the kinda man likes to get away
Like to start dreamin’ about tomorrow today
Never said that I love you, even thought it’s so
Where’s that duffle bag of mine it’s time to go
Heard it in a love song
Heard it in a love song
Heard it in a love song
Can’t be wrong
I’m gona be leavin’ at the break of dawn
Wish you could come but I don’t need no woman taggin’ along
So I’ll sneak out that door couldn’t stand to see you cry
I’d stay another year if I saw a tear drop in your eye
Heard it in a love song
Heard it in a love song
Heard it in a love song
Can’t be wrong
I never had a damn thing but what I had
I had to leave it behind
You’re the hardest thing I ever tried to get off my mind
Always something greener on the other side of that hill
I was born a wrangler and a rambler and I guess I always will
Heard it in a love song
Heard it in a love song
Heard it in a love song
Can’t be wrong

LYRICS:

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am fun again
However far away
I will always love you
However long I stay
I will always love you
Whatever words I say
I will always love you
I will always love you
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am free again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am clean again
However far away
I will always love you
However long I stay
I will always love you
Whatever words I say
I will always love you
I will always love you
