Lyrics DREAM OF A LAND
MY SOUL IS FROM,
I HEAR A HAND
STROKE ON A DRUM,
SHADES OF DELIGHT
COCOA HUE,
RICH AS A NIGHT,
AFRO BLUE.
ELEGANT BOY,
BEAUTIFUL GIRL,
DANCING FOR JOY,
DELICATE WHIRL,
SHADES OF DELIGHT,
COCOA HUE,
RICH AS A NIGHT,
AFRO BLUE.

TWO YOUNG LOVERS
ARE FACE TO FACE,
WITH UNDULATING GRACE,
THEY GENTLY SWAY,
THEN SLIP AWAY
TO SOME SECLUDED PLACE.

SHADES OF DELIGHT,
COCOA HUE,
RICH AS A NIGHT,
AFRO BLUE.

WHISPERING TREES
ECHO THEIR SIGHS,
PASSIONATE PLEAS,
TENDER REPLIES,
SHADES OF DELIGHT
COCOA HUE,
RICH AS A NIGHT,
AFRO BLUE.
LOVERS ON FLIGHT,
UPWARD THEY GLIDE,
BURST AT THE HEIGHT,
SLOWLY SUBSIDE,
SHADES OF DELIGHT,
COCOA HUE,
RICH AS A NIGHT,
AFRO BLUE.

AND MY SLUMBERING FANTASY
ASSUMES REALITY
UNTIL IT SEEMS
IT'S NOT A DREAM,
THE TWO
ARE YOU AND ME.

SHADES OF DELIGHT,
COCOA HUE,
RICH AS A NIGHT,
AFRO BLUE.

SHADES OF DELIGHT,
COCOA HUE,
RICH AS A NIGHT,
AFRO BLUE.
SHADES OF DELIGHT,
COCOA HUE,
RICH AS A NIGHT,
AFRO BLUE.

Lyrics BROWN BABY,
BROWN BABY,
AS YOU GROW UP,
I WANT YOU TO DRINK
FROM THE PLENTY CUP
I WANT YOU
TO STAND UP
TALL AND PROUD,
I WANT YOU
TO SPEAK UP,
CLEAR AND LOUD
BROWN BABY.

BROWN BABY,
BROWN BABY,
AS YEARS ROLL BY,
I WANT YOU
TO GO
WITH YOUR HEAD
HELD HIGH
I WANT YOU
TO LIVE BY
THE JUSTICE CODE,
I WANT YOU
TO WALK DOWN
THE FREEDOM ROAD
BROWN BABY.

NOW LIE AWAY,
LIE AWAY SLEEPING,
LIE AWAY HERE
IN MY ARMS
WHILE YOUR DADDY
AND YOUR MOMMY
PROTECT YOU,
AND KEEP YOU
SAFE FROM HARM.
OH, YOU,
LITTLE BROWN BABY.

BROWN BABY,
BROWN BABY,
IT MAKES ME GLAD,
THAT YOU WILL HAVE THINGS
THAT I NEVER HAD
WHEN OUT OF MEN'S HEARTS
ALL THE HATE IS HURLED,
YOU'RE GONNA LIVE
IN A BETTER WORLD
OH YOU
LITTLE BROWN BABY.

Lyrics verse:
spoken:
I'VE ALWAYS LIVED
BY THIS GOLDEN RULE,
WHATEVER HAPPENS,
DON'T BLOW YOUR COOL
YOU GOTTA HAVE
NERVES OF STEEL
AND NEVER SHOW FOLKS
WHAT YOU HONESTLY FEEL.
I'VE LIVED MY WHOLE LIFE
THIS WAY,
FOR EXAMPLE,
TAKE YESTERDAY...

Choruses:
sung:
I BREEZED HOME HAPPY,
BRINGIN' HER MY PAY,
HER NOTE READ,
SO LONG, SAPPY,
I HAVE RUN AWAY.
I THREW MYSELF DOWN
ACROSS OUR EMPTY BED
AND THIS IS WHAT I SAID:
---cryingwailing sounds---
spoken:
BUT I WAS COOL!

sung:
SO I ONE-FOR-THE-ROAD-IT
AT AN ALL NIGHT BAR,
WOUND UP SO LOADED
I TORE UP MY CAR.
THE JUDGE
THREW THE BOOK AT ME
AND WHEN I READ
HIS SENTENCE THERE
I SAID:
---cryingwailing sounds---
spoken:
BUT I WAS COOL!

sung:
SO I SAID,
SHE'S THE ONLY ONE
I HAVE TO THANK.
AND FOUND HER
AND PULLED MY GUN
AND FIRED POINT BLANK.
THE SHOT WHISTLED
RIGHT STRAIGHT PAST
THAT WOMAN'S HEAD
AND KILLED
MY HOUND DOG DEAD.
---cryingwailing sounds---
spoken:
BUT I WAS COOL!

sung:
AS THEY CARRIED ME AWAY
I WAS OVERHEARD TO SAY,
BE COOL,
PLAY IT COOL,
STAY COOL.
KEEP COOL.
COOL!

Lyrics Male lyric:
I HAVE SEEN
THE ROLLING MEADOW,
FIELDS OF WHEAT,
ALL GOLDEN YELLOW,
I'LL ADMIT
THEY'RE RATHER PRETTY,
BUT I PREFER
THE SCENE IN THE CITY.
FOLKS WHO MOVE
TO RURAL REGIONS,
FOLKS WHO JOIN
THE FOREIGN LEGIONS,
NEVER DUG THE CITY,
NOT AT ALL,
WERE NEVER HYPNOTIZED
BY THE CITY CALL.

I NEVER COULD RESIDE
IN A COUNTRYSIDE,
IT WOULD GET ME DOWN.
'CAUSE I LOVE
THE HUSTLE
AND THE BUSTLE
TO BE FOUND
IN A GREAT BIG TOWN.
A CROWDED STREET
WITH ALL ITS FACES,
EVERYBODY GOING PLACES,
HEAR THAT NOISE -
THAT'S THE CITY'S VOICE.

PUT ME IN
THE HEAVY TRAFFIC,
LET ME SEE
THE NEON MAGIC,
TURN ME LOOSE
AND LET ME HAVE A BALL,
DON'T LIKE A TOWN
TOO SMALL,
PREFER MY BUILDINGS TALL,
'CAUSE I HAVE HEARD
THE CALL OF THE CITY.

Female lyric:
SOME FOLKS LOVE
THE ROLLING OCEAN,
ME, I CAN'T ABIDE
THE MOTION,
GET SO SEASICK
IT'S A PITY,
I'D RATHER TRIM SOME SAILS
IN THE CITY.
SOME FOLKS LONG
FOR PEACEFUL VALLEYS,
ME, I'M STRONG
ON STREETS AND ALLEYS,
AND THE SUBWAY
WITH THE CROWD AROUND,
THAT SWINGIN' SYMPHONY
OF SWEET CITY SOUND!

I COULDN'T TAKE A WEEK
ON A MOUNTAIN PEAK,
NEVER MIND THE VIEW.
SUNNY AFTERNOONS
ON DESERT DUNES
WOULD DEPRESS ME TOO.
I'M JUST A NATURAL
CITY GIRL,
BORN AND BRED
TO THE CITY WHIRL,
CITY ROAR,
LET ME HEAR SOME MORE...

YOU CAN KEEP
YOUR PEACE AND QUIET,
LEAD ME
TO THAT RUSH HOUR RIOT,
TURN ME LOOSE
AND LET ME HAVE A BALL,
DON'T LIKE A TOWN
TOO SMALL,
PREFER MY BUILDINGS TALL,
'CAUSE I HAVE HEARD
THE CALL OF THE CITY.

Lyrics spoken:
IF I'M NOT MISTAKEN
I ONCE READ,
DURIN' THAT SHORT SPELL
I SPENT IN SCHOOL,
WHERE EVERY SLAVE SET FREE
WAS SUPPOSED TO GET,
FOR SLAVING,
FORTY ACRES AND A MULE.

NOW AIN'T NO TELLING
HOW MUCH WORK WAS DONE
BY MY ANCESTORS
UNDER SLAVER'S RULE,
BUT SURE AS HELL
THE TOTAL'S GOT TO RUN
AT LEAST,
TO FORTY ACRES AND A MULE.

NOW I'M NOT SAYING THIS
TO SEE FOLKS SWEAT,
BECAUSE I'M NOT BITTER,
NEITHER AM I CRUEL,
BUT AIN'T NOBODY PAID
FOR SLAVERY YET
ABOUT MY FORTY ACRES
AND A MULE...

WE HAD A PROMISE
THAT WAS TAKEN BACK,
AND WHEN WE HOLLERED
IT WAS, HUSH, BE COOL!
WELL ME,
I'M BEIN' ROWDY,
HOT AN' BLACK:
I WANT MY FORTY ACRES
AND MY MULE!

DON'T TELL ME
NOT TO GET MYSELF UPSET,
DON'T LOOK AT ME
LIKE I'M SOME KIND OF GHOUL,
JUST ANSWER QUIETLY,
WHEN DO I GET
MY GODDAMN FORTY ACRES
AND MY MULE?

NO THANKS,
I'LL TAKE MY OWN SELF
OUT TO LUNCH.
NO THANKS,
I'LL DIG ME
MY OWN SWIMMING POOL,
AND LAY
AN' PLAY AROUND
WITH MY OWN BUNCH,
IF I GIT FORTY ACRES AND A MULE.

BECAUSE INTEREST GOTTA GO ON
JUST LIKE RENT,
I MAY BE CRAZY,
BUT I AIN'T NO FOOL.
ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF DEBT
AT TEN PERCENT,
PER YEAR,
PER FORTY ACRES,
AN' PER MULE.

NOW ADD THAT UP
AN' OOOOEEEE LOOK-A THERE!
NO WONDER Y'ALL
CALLED GREAT GRANDMA A JEWEL.
JUST PAY ME THAT
AND CALL THE WHOLE THING
SQUARE,
YES LORDY,
FORTY ACRES AND A MULE!

Lyrics male vocal:
HAZEL'S HIPS ARE A CONCERT
OF CONTOURS AND CURVES,
AS SHE SLIPS TO AND FRO
'ROUND THE TABLES
SHE SERVES
I BUY SIX MEALS
A DAY
IN MY FAVORITE CAFE,
'CAUSE I SEE HAZEL
THAT WAY.
HAZEL'S EYES ARE DIVINE
AND HER HAIR IS SO FINE,
YEAH!
BUT HER HIPS
BRING THE TIPS!

HAZEL DIPS ME MY SOUP,
SERVES ME MY CUP OF TEA,
MY HEART FLIPS
WHEN I SEE
HAZEL SMILIN' AT ME
SO I SAY,
HONEYBUNCH,
CAN'T I HAVE YOU
FOR LUNCH?
BUT HAZEL JUST GIVES ME
A HUNCH.
HAZEL'S LEGS
ARE A TOAST
AND HER WAIST
IS THE MOST,
BUT HER HIPS
BRING THE TIPS!

HAZEL'S HIPS
HAVE A RHYTHM
SO GENTLY CONTROLLED,
THAT HER TRIPS
TO THE KITCHEN
ARE A JOY TO BEHOLD
LOVE TO JUST SIT
AND GAZE
AT THE WAY
HAZEL SWAYS,
WHEN SHE'S CARRYIN' TRAYS.
HAZEL'S EYES ARE DIVINE
AND HER HAIR IS SO FINE,
BUT HER HIPS,
YEAH,
HER HIPS!

I'M SO FINE,

LOVE'S BEGINNING
HEARTS ENCHANTED
FULL OF BRIGHT
NEW DREAMS.
BUT WE CAN'T TAKE LOVE
FOR GRANTED
FOR TO ME IT SEEMS...

A NEW LOVE IS LIKE A NEWBORN CHILD,
TENDER AND SWEET
AND IN NEED OF CARE
PRECIOUS INDEED
IS THE LOVE WE SHARE,
LIKE A NEWBORN CHILD.

'TIL IT GROWS UP STRONG,
YOU LULLABY A NEW LOVE
WITH A HAPPY SONG.
BECAUSE A NEW LOVE IS LIKE A NEWBORN CHILD,
CHERISH AND GUARD IT
AND HOLD IT CLOSE
GIVE IT YOUR HEART
AND JUST PRAY IT GROWS
AND GROWS
TO BE SOMETHING SURE,
SOMETHING GRAND,
SOMETHING
HEAVEN MUST HAVE PLANNED,
LIKE A LOVELY NEWBORN CHILD,
LIKE A NEWBORN CHILD.

Lyrics PERMIT ME
TO INTRODUCE MYSELF,
THE NAME
IS MISTER KICKS.
I DWELL
IN A DARK DOMINION
WAY DOWN
BY THE RIVER STYX.
THE DEVIL
SENT ME HERE
BECAUSE I'M FULL
OF WICKED TRICKS,
AND I'M SUCH
A POPULAR FELLOW
AMONG ALL YOU LUNATICS.
I TEACH A COURSE
IN RUINATION
FROM THE DEVIL'S TEXT
TO FOLKS
WHO CAN'T WITHSTAND
TEMPTATION
STEP RIGHT UP
YOU'RE NEXT.
I HAIL
FROM A HOT OLD
HELL HOLE
DOWN ALONG THE RIVER STYX.
ALLOW ME
TO INTRODUCE MYSELF,
THE NAME
IS MISTER KICKS.

WHEN AN OLD WOLF
STARTS TO PROWLIN'
OUT AMONG THE YOUNG LAMBS
HOWLIN',
DON'T YOU KNOW
HE'S LOOKIN' FOR KICKS?
WHEN A YOUNG CAT
FULL OF SLY TRICKS
SPENDS HIS EVENINGS
CHASIN' FLY CHICKS,
TEN TO ONE
HE'S LOOKIN' FOR KICKS.

KICKS
IS ALWAYS
IN DEMAND
'CAUSE KICKS
IS FULL OF FUN
AND LAUGHTER,
LOTS OF FOLKS
GET OUT OF HAND
BECAUSE IT'S ONLY KICKS
THEY'RE AFTER.

SHADY LADY
AND HER LOVER
OPERATIN'

SHE KNOWS SIN
AND VIRTUE DONT MIX.
MAMA RAISED HER PRIM

WHEN SHE'S ON
A MANHUNT FOR KICKS.

JUST KICKS,
LOOKIN' FOR KICKS.
FOR KICKS,
NOTHIN' BUT KICKS.

OPPORTUNITY, PLEASE KNOCK.

KNOCK AND THEN ENTER,

SHOW ME SOME CHANCE
THAT'S JUST HALFWAY FAIR

WATCH ME TAKE IT FROM THERE!
OPPORTUNITY, PLEASE,
OPPORTUNITY, PLEASE KNOCK.

THERE'S A SHIP OUT AT SEA
COMIN' IN FOR ME,
I'M ALL SET TO GO KNOCK

THEN GET ON YOUR MARK
AND I WILL RACE YOU
TO THE DOCK.

Lyrics AIGS OL' ION,
AIGS OL' ION,
AIGS OL' ION,
AIGS OL' ION.

verse 1:
I HEARD AN OLD RAGMAN
OUT MAKING HIS ROUNDS,
COMIN' RIGHT DOWN
MY ALLEY
WITH SORROWFUL SOUNDS
CRYING,
RAGS AND OLD IRON
AND PULLING HIS CART,
I ASKED HIM
HOW MUCH HE'D GIVE ME
FOR MY BROKEN HEART.

Chorus:
AIGS OL' ION,
AIGS OL' ION
ALL HE WAS BUYIN'
WAS RAGS AND OLD IRON.

verse 2:
I ASKED THAT OLD RAGMAN
HOW MUCH HE WOULD PAY,
FOR A HEART THAT WAS BROKEN
WHEN YOU WENT AWAY
FOR A BURNTOUT
OLD LOVELIGHT
THAT NO LONGER BEAMS,
AND A COUPLE
OF SLIGHTLY USED
SECOND HAND DREAMS.

Chorus:
AIGS OL' ION,
AIGS OL' ION
ALL HE WAS BUYIN'
WAS RAGS AND OLD IRON.

verse 3:
WHATEVER HE'D OFFER
I'D HAPPILY TAKE,
FOR THE BIG EMPTY PROMISES
YOU USED TO MAKE
FOR THE MEM'RIES OF YOU
THAT ARE NO LONGER SWEET,
I JUST WISH
HE COULD HAUL THEM
ALL OFF DOWN THE STREET.

Chorus:
AIGS OL' ION,
AIGS OL' ION
ALL HE WAS BUYIN'
WAS RAGS AND OLD IRON.

verse 4:
WHEN LOVE DOSEN'T LAST
THEN HOW MUCH IS IT WORTH?
IT WAS ONCE MY MOST PRECIOUS
POSSESSION ON EARTH
NOW I ASKED THAT OLD RAGMAN
IF HE'D LIKE TO BUY,
BUT HE JUST SHOOK HIS HEAD
AND CONTINUED TO CRY:

Chorus:
AIGS OL' ION,
AIGS OL' ION
ALL HE WAS BUYIN'
WAS RAGS AND OLD IRON.
