Even MORE lyrics-- though with a twist--

1. Take these broken wings and learn to fly. All your life, you were only waiting for this moment to arise

2. Feed the babies who don't have enough to eat. Shoe the children with no shoes on their feet. House the people livin' in the street. Oh, oh, there's a solution

3. If I stay here with you, girl, things just couldn't be the same

4. It's apropos of nothing, he says his name is William. But I'm sure he's Bill or Billy or Mac or Buddy

5. He's gonna buy me a diamond ring, and if that diamond ring won't shine, he's gonna surely break this heart of mine

6. Blue canary in the outlet by the light switch, who watches over you?

7. You know she dances while his father plays guitar. She's suddenly beautiful, and we all want something beautiful. Man, I wish I was beautiful

8. Singin' sweet songs of melodies pure and true, saying "This is my message to you-ou-ou"

9. …are singing, like they know the score. And I love you, I love you, I love you, like never before

10. Okay, now he was close, tried to domesticate you. But you're an animal, baby, it's in your nature. Just let me liberate you (hey, hey, hey). You don't need no takers (hey, hey, hey). That man is not your maker (hey, hey, hey) and that's why I'm gonna' take a good girl (everybody get up)

11. Brothers, don't be cool. Women like it sometimes when you act a fool. Sisters, don't be shy. Let your body get loose, you ain't too fat to fly. Come on now! Whawk! Hallelujah! Whoa!

12. For you, baby, I would swim the sea. Nothing I'd do for you that's too tough for me. I'd put out a burning building with a shovel and dirt and not even worry about getting hurt

13. We had a dream we'd go travelin' together, and spread a little lovin' if we'll keep movin' on. Somethin' always happens whenever we're together. We get a happy feelin' when we're singin' a song

14. Boys and things that come by the dozen. That ain't nothin' but drugstore lovin'. Hey little thing, let me light your candle

15. I never thought I'd meet a girl like you, meet a girl like you. With auburn hair and tawny eyes, the kind of eyes that hypnotize me through, hypnotize me through

16. A time to be born, a time to die. A time to plant, a time to reap. A time to kill, a time to heal. A time to laugh, a time to weep

17. And I found out a long time ago, what a woman can do to your soul. Aw but she can't take you any way you don't already know how to go

18. Now they sound tired but they don't sound Haggard,They got money but they don't have Cash,They got Junior but they don't have Hank

19. Dream if you can, a courtyard; an ocean of violets in bloom. Animals strike curious poses.

20. I'd rather be a hammer than a nail. Yes, I would. If I only could, I surely would
