No 9 Dream – John Lennon


no 9 dreamSeemed so very real, it seemed so real to me
Took a walk down the street
Thru the heat whispered trees
I thought I could hear
Somebody call out my name as it started to rain

So long ago
Was it in a dream, was it just a dream?
I know, yes I know
Seemed so very real, it seemed so real to me
Took a walk down the street
Thru the heat whispered trees
I thought I could hear
Somebody call out my name as it started to rain
Two spirits dancing so strange
Ah! böwakawa poussé, poussé

Dream, dream away
Magic in the air, was magic in the air?
I believe, yes I believe
More I cannot say, what more can I say?
On a river of sound
Thru the mirror go round, round
I thought I could feel
Music touching my soul, something warm, sudden cold
The spirit dance was unfolding
Ah! böwakawa poussé, poussé

Cause we all gave the power
We all gave the best
And everyone gave everything
And every song everybody sang

Across 110th Street – Bobby Womack


Across 110th Street
Womack, Bobby

I was the third brother of five,
Doing whatever I had to do to survive.
I’m not saying what I did was alright,
Trying to break out of the ghetto was a day to day fight.

Been down so long, getting up didn’t cross my mind,
I knew there was a better way of life that I was just trying to find.
You don’t know what you’ll do until you’re put under pressure,
Across 110th Street is a hell of a tester.

Across 110th Street,
Pimps trying to catch a woman that’s weak
Across 110th Street,
Pushers won’t let the junkie go free.
Across 110th Street,
Woman trying to catch a trick on the street.
Across 110th Street,
You can find it all in the street.

I got one more thing I’d like to y’all about right now.
Hey brother, there’s a better way out.
Snorting that coke, shooting that dope man you’re copping out.
Take my advice, it’s either live or die.
You’ve got to be strong, if you want to survive.

The family on the other side of town,
Would catch hell without a ghetto around.
In every city you find the same thing going down,
Harlem is the capital of every ghetto town.

Across 110th Street,
Pimps trying to catch a woman that’s weak
Across 110th Street,
Pushers won’t let the junkie go free.
Across 110th Street,
A woman trying to catch a trick on the street, ouh baby
Across 110th Street,
You can find it all in the street.
Yes he can, oh

Look around you, just look around you,
Look around you, look around you, uh yeah.

The Bravest Man In The Universe – Bobby Womack


bobby womackThe bravest man in the Universe
Is the one who has forgiven first

It’s up to us
What we say and what we do

In the universe
Is the one who has forgiven first
He bravest man in the universe
I got a story I want to tell
Gather round me
Gather round me boys and girls

I once was lost
But now I’m found
Whe I beer u so high
I always know how to come down

The bravest man in the Universe
Is the one who has forgiven first
Yeah
Shame on me, shame on you
It’s up to us
What we say and what we do

Would you stay in the sun
Would you stay in the sun much too long
You try to find the shade
Shade that makes you feel at home

The bravest man in the Universe
Is the one who can forgiven first
The bravest man in the Universe
Oh ah
The bravest man in the Universe

Songwriters
RICHARD RUSSELL, HAROLD PAYNE, DAMON ALBARN, BOBBY WOMACK
