New York State of Mind (c) 1976 Joelsongs by Billy Joel

Lead vocal: Claude



Some folks like to get away
Take a holiday from the neighborhood
Hop a flight to Miami beach or to Hollywood
I'm taking a Greyhound on the Hudson River line
I'm in a New York State of mind



I've seen all the movie stars in their fancy cars and their limosines
Been high in the rockies under the evergreens
I know what I'm needing and I don't want to waste more time
I'm in a New York State of mind



It was easy living day by day
Out of touch with the rhythm and blues
But now I need a little give and take, the New York Times and the Daily News


It comes down to reality and it's find with me cause I've let it slide
Don't care if it's Chinatown or on Riverside
Don't have any reasons , I've left them all behind
I'm in a New York State of mind


***

It was so easy living day by day
Out of touch with the rhythm and blues
but now I need a little give and take
The New York Times and The Daily News

It comes down to reality and it's fine with me 'cause I've let it slide
Don't care if it's Chinatown or on Riverside
I'm just taking a Greyhound on the Hudson River line
I'm in a New York State of mind.

Lead vocals: Evette, Keith, Miriam, Tom, Claude


And I never thought I'd feel this way
and as far as I'm concerned I'm glad I got the chance to say
that believe I love you
and if I should ever go away
well then close your eyes and try
to feel the way we do today
and then if you can remember

Keep smiling, keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me, for sure
That's what friends are for
For good times and bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for

Well you came and opened me and now there's so much more I see
and so by the way I thank you
Oh and then for the times that we're apart,
well then close your eyes and know these words are coming from my heart
and then if you can remember, oh

Keep smiling, keep shining, knowing you can always count on me , for sure
that what friends are for
In good times, in bad times I'll be on your side forever more
Oh that what friends are for.........

Oh, oh, oh, oh keep smiling, keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me, for sure
That's what friends are for
For good times, and bad times I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for

Keep smiling, keep shining knowing you can always count on me
that for sure, 'cause I tell you that's what friends are for
For good times and for bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for.

That's what friends are for, yeah

(Friends are made for sure)
I believe for sure
I believe for sure
That's what friends are for
Keep smiling, keep shining

You Can Have Her (c) 1961 by Bill Cook

Lead Vocal: Claude

Well, you can have her,
I don't want her
She didn't love me anyway
She only wanted someone to play with,
but all I wanted was love to stay.
well, when you get stuck with the wrong woman
there's only one thing that you can do
just dig a whole and jump right in it
then pull the ground right over you
Well, you can have her (You Can Have Her)
I don't want her ( I don't want her)
She didn't love me (didn't love me ) anyway (anyway).
She only wanted (only wanted) someone to play with (one yo play with)
but all I wanted (all I Wanted) was love to stay (was love to stay).

The girl I love, she, up and left me.
She ran away with my best friend.
Comes home at night just for an hour
When daylight comes she's gone again.


You can have her (you can have her) I don't want her (I don't want her)
She didn't love me (she didn't love me) anyway (anyway)
She only wanted (she only wanted) someone to play with (one to play with)
But all I wanted (all I wanted) was love to stay (was love to stay)


Life without love is mighty empty,but confession's good for the soul.
I'd rather have love that I can cling to
Than have the world and all of it's gold.
(You Can Have Her) You Can Have Her,
(I Don't Want Her) I Don't Want her,

(She Didn't Love You) She Didn't Love Me,
(Anyway) anyway.(She only wanted) She Only Wanted (Someone To Play With)

but all I wanted (all I wanted) all I wanted (all I wanted ) all I wanted (all I wanted)
all I wanted (All I Wanted) . . . .
