I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel,
you were talking so brave and so sweet,
giving me head on the unmade bed,
while the limousines wait in the street.
Those were the reasons and that was New York,
we were running for the money and the flesh.
And that was called love for the workers in song
probably still is for those of them left.
Ah but you got away, didn't you babe,
you just turned your back on the crowd,
you got away, I never once heard you say,
I need you, I don't need you,
I need you, I don't need you
and all of that jiving around.

I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel
you were famous, your heart was a legend.
You told me again you preferred handsome men
but for me you would make an exception.
And clenching your fist for the ones like us
who are oppressed by the figures of beauty,
you fixed yourself, you said, "Well never mind,
we are ugly but we have the music."

And then you got away, didn't you babe...

I don't mean to suggest that I loved you the best,
I can't keep track of each fallen robin.
I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel,
that's all, I don't even think of you that often.

I shot the sheriff
But I didnt shoot no deputy, ooh, ooh, oo-ooh.)
Yeah! all around in my home town,
Theyre tryin to track me down;They say they want to bring me in guilty
For the killing of a deputy,For the life of a deputy.
But I say: I shot the sheriff - oh, lord! -
(and they say it is a capital offence.)
Yeah! (ooh, ooh, oo-oh) yeah!
Sheriff john brown always hated me,
For what, I dont know,Every time I plant a seed,
He said kill it before it grow ,He said kill them before they grow.
And so:Read it in the news:
(I shot the sheriff.) oh, lord!
(but I swear it was in self-defence.)
Where was the deputy? (oo-oo-oh)
I say: I shot the sheriff,
But I swear it was in selfdefence. (oo-oh) yeah!
Freedom came my way one day,And I started out of town, yeah!
All of a sudden I saw sheriff john brown,Aiming to shoot me down,
So I shot - I shot - I shot him down and I say:
If I am guilty I will pay.(I shot the sheriff,)
But I say (but I didnt shoot no deputy),
I didnt shoot no deputy (oh, no-oh), oh no!
(I shot the sheriff.) i did!,But I didnt shoot no deputy. oh! (oo-oo-ooh)
Reflexes had got the better of me,And what is to be must be:
Every day the bucket a-go a well,
One day the bottom a-go drop out,One day the bottom a-go drop out.
I say:
I - I - I - I shot the sheriff.Lord, I didnt shot the deputy. yeah!
I - I (shot the sheriff) -But I didnt shoot no deputy, yeah! no, yeah!

If you want me to stay,I'll be around today,to be available for you to see.
But I am about to go,And then you'll know,For me to stay here I got to be mean.
You'll never be in doubt,That's what it's all about,You can't take it for granted it's mine.
Get home and please and don't,Forget to reach me by phone.Because I promise I'll be gone for a while.
And when you see me again,I hope that you have been,The kind of person....that you really are now.
Got to get in straight,How could I ever be late,When you're my woman taking up my time.
Whoa, oh how could you ever allow,I guess I wonder how,How could you pick out your pockets of fun. HOW HOW!!
Well you know that you'll never know toooooo,Number one's gonna be number one,ohh oww oohh
I'll be good,I wish I could,I get this message over to you now.
...and when you see me again,I hope that you have been,The kind of person you really are now.

an´ the livin´ is easy
Fish are jumpin´
an´ the cotton is high
Oh, yo´ daddy´s rich
an yo´ ma is good lookin´
So hush, little baby,
don´ you cry

One of these mornin´s
you goin´ to rise up singin´;
Then you´ll spread yo´ wings
an you´ll take the sky
But till that mornin´
there´s a nothin´ can harm you
with Daddy an´ Mammy
standin´ by
