These Foolish Things (1973)



1- A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall                                                                                                                                                                  
Oh where have you been, my blue eyed son?
Where have you been, my darling young one?
I've stumbled on the side twelve misty mountains
Walked and I've crawled on six crooked highways
Stepped in the middle of seven sad forests
Been out in front of a dozen dead oceans
I've been ten thousand miles in mouth of a graveyard
And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall
And what did you see, my blue eyed son?
What did you see, my darling young one?
I saw a newborn baby with wolves all around it
I saw a highway of diamonds with nobody on it
I saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin'
I saw a room full of men with their hammers a bleedin'
A white ladder all covered with water
I saw ten thousand talkers whose tongues were all broken
I saw guns and sharp swords in the hands of young children
And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall
And what did you hear, my blue eyed son?
What did you hear, my darling young one
I heard the sound of thunder that roared out a warning
Heard the roar of a wave that could drown the whole world
Heard one hundred drummers whose hands were a blazin'
Heard ten thousand whisperin' and nobody listenin'
Heard one person starve, I heard many people laughin'
Heard the song of a poet who died in the gutter
Heard the sound of a clown who cried in the alley
And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall
Oh who you did meet, my blue eyed son?
Who did you meet, my darling young one?
I met a young child beside a dead pony
I met a white man who walked a black dog
I met a young woman whose body was burning
I met a young girl, she gave me a rainbow
I met one man who was wounded in love
I met another man who was wounded with hatred
And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall
Oh what'll you do now, my blue eyed son?
What'll you do now, my darling young one?
I'm goin' back out 'fore the rain starts fallin'
Walk to depths of the deepest black forest
Where people are many and their hands are all empty
Where the pellets of poison are flooding waters
Where the home in the valley meets the damp dirty prison
Where the executioner's face is always well hidden
Where hunger is ugly, where souls are forgotten
Where black is the colour, where none is the number
And I'll tell it and think it and speak it and breathe it
And reflect it from the mountains so all souls can see it
Then I'll stand in the ocean until I start sinking
But I'll know my song well before I start singing
And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall

2- River Of Salt (Brown / Zackery)
River of salt
Falling from my eyes
It seems a though
I can't realise
My love has gone
She has left this town
River of salt
Keeps flowing down
Day turns to night
Still tears fall
Since we're apart
They won't stop at all
River of salt
Your tears won't end
Will I see
My love again?
Will I see
My love again?

3- Don't Ever Change (Goffin/King)
You never wear a stitch of lace
And powder's never on your face
You're always wearing jeans except on Sunday
Oh please don't ever change
No don't you ever change
I kinda like you just the way you are
You don't know the latest dance
But when it's time to make romance
Your kisses let me know you're not a tomboy
So please don't ever change
No don't you ever change
Oh promise me you're always gonna be
As sweet as you are
I love you when you're happy
I love you when you're blue
I love you when you're mad at me
So how can I get tired of you?
A lot of other girls I've seen
They know how to treat guys mean
But you would rather die than ever hurt me
So please don't ever change
No don't you ever change
No promise me you're always gonna be
As sweet as you are

4- Piece Of My Heart
Didn't I make you feel like you are the only one
Didn't I give you everything that I possibly can
But Lord, the love I give you it's never enough
But I'm gonna show you, baby, that I really can be tough
So come on, come on, come on, come on take it
Take another little piece of my heart now, baby
Break another little bit of my heart now, honey
Have another little piece of my heart now, baby
You know you got it if makes you feel good
You're out on the streets looking good
And you know deep down in your heart that it ain't right
You never, never hear me when I cry at night
I tell myself that I can't stand the pain
But when you hold me in your arms, I'll sing it once again
So come on, come on, come on, come on take it
Take another little piece of my heart now, baby
Break another little bit of my heart now, honey
Have another little piece of my heart now, baby
You know you got it if makes you feel good

5- Baby I Don't Care
you don't like crazy music
You don't like rockin' bands
You just wanna go to a movie show
And sit there holdin' hands
You're so square
But baby, I don't care
You don't like hot rod racin'
Or drivin' late at night
You just wanna park where's it's nice and dark
You just wanna hold me tight
You so square
But baby I don't care
You don't know any dance steps that are new
But no one else can love like you do
I don't know why my heart flips
I only know it does
I wonder why I love you babe
I guess it's just because
You're so square

6- It's My Party
Nobody knows where my Johnny has gone
Judy left the same time
Why was he holding her hand
When she's supposed to be mine
It's my party and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happend to you
Play all my records keep dancing all night
But leave me alone for a while
Til Johnny's dancing with me
I have no reason to smile
It's my party and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you
Judy and Johnny just walk through that door
Like a queen with her king
Oh, what surprise
Judy's wearing his ring
It's my party and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

7- Don't Worry Baby
Well it's been building up inside before
I don't know how long
I don't know why
But I keep thinking
Something's bound to go wrong
But she looks in my eyes
And makes me realize
When she says "Don't worry baby"
Don't worry baby
Everything will turn out alright
Don't worry baby
Each morning I awake to find
The sunlight softly shining on her hair
And then I realize I'm wrong in thinking
That she really doesn't care
These's magic in her eyes
That makes me come alive
When she says "Don't worry baby"
Don't worry baby
Everything will turn out alright
Don't worry baby
She tells me "Baby when you leave today just
Take along my love with you
And if you knew how much I loved you
Baby nothing could go wrong for you"

8- Sympathy For The Devil
Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
I've been around for a long, long year
Stole many a man's soul and fate
I was 'round when Jesus Christ
Had his moment of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that Pilate
Washed his hands and sealed his fate
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game
Stuck around St. Petersburg
When I saw it was time for a change
Killed the Czar and his ministers
Anastasia screamed in vain
I rode a tank
Held a generals rank
When the Blitzkrieg raged
And the bodies stank
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game
I watched the gleam
While you kings and queens
Fought for ten decades
For the Goth they made
I shouted out
"Who killed the Kennedys?"
When after all
It was you and me
Let me please introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
And I laid tracks for troubadours
Who get killed before they reached Bombay
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game
Just as every cop is a criminal
And all the sinners Saints
As I end this tale
Just call me Lucifer
'Cause I'm in need of some restraint
So if you meet me
Have some courtesy
Have some sympathy and some taste
Use all your well learned qualities
Or I'll lay your soul to waste
What she does to me
When she makes love to me
And she says "Don't worry baby"
Don't worry baby
Everything will turn out alright

9- The Tracks Of My Tears
People say I'm the life of the party
'Cause I tell a joke or two
Although I may be laughin' loud and hearty
Deep inside I'm blue
So take a good look at my face
You see my smile looks out of place
If you look closer it's easy to track
The tracks of my tears
I need you, need you
Since you left me
If you see me with another girl
Seemin' like I'm havin' fun
Although she may be cute
She's just a substitute
Because you're the only one
So take a good look at my face
You see my smile looks out of place
If you look closer it's easy to trace
The tracks of my tears
I need you, need you
I'm masquerading
My hope is fading
Since you put me down
My smile is my makeup
I wear since my breakup with you
Baby take a good look at my face
You see my smile looks out of place
If you look closer it's easy to trace
The tracks of my tears

10- You Won't See Me
When I call you up
Your line's engaged
I have had enough
So act your age
We have lost the time
That was so hard to find
And I will lost my mind
I you won't see me
I don't know why
Should want to hide
But I can't get through
My hands are tied
I won't want to stay
I don't have much to say
But I can't turn away
And you won't see me
Time after time
You refuse to even listen
I wouldn't mind
If I knew what I was missing
Though the days are few
They're filled with tears
And since I lost you
It feels like years
Yes, it seems so long
Girl, since you've been gone
And I just can't go on
If you won't see me
You won't see me

11- I Love How You Love Me
I love how your eyes close
Whenever you kiss me
And when I'm away from you
I love how you miss me
I love the way you always
Treat me tenderly
But darlin' most of all
I love how you love me
I love how your heart beats
Whenever I hold you
I love how you think of me
Without being told to
Is so heavenly
But darling' most of all
I love how you love me...
I love how your eyes close
Whenever you kiss me
And when I'm away from you
I love how you miss me
I love the way you always
Treat me tenderly
But darlin' most of all
I love how you love me
....love me, love me
Love how you hug me
I love how you squeeze me
I love how you squeeze me
Tease me, please me
Love how you tease me
I love the way you always treat me tenderly
But darling most of all, I love how you love me

12- Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever
I remember just before we met
Thet every night and day
I had to live the life of a lonely one
I remember meeting you
Discovering love could be so cool
When it's shared by two instead of the lonely one
When you said you love me
We could not be parted
And I build my world around you
I'm so thankful that I found you
Because loving you has made my life sweeter than ever
I ain't never felt like this before
Loving you has made my life so more sweeter than ever
Each night I pray we'd never part
For all the love within my heart grows stronger
From day to day
As best I can, and how I try
To reassure you and satisfy
'Cause I'd be lost if you went away
`Cause I really need you
And I need for you to need me too
I have built my world around you
I'm so thankful that I've found you
Because loving you has made my life sweeter than ever
Loving you has made my life so more sweeter than ever
'Cause I really love you
And I'm thankful that you love me too
I have built my world around you
I am truly glad, I found you
Because loving you has made my life sweeter than ever
Loving you has made my life so more sweeter than ever
I never felt like this before
Loving you has made my life so more sweeter than ever

13- These Foolish Things
Oh will you never let me be?
Oh will you never set me free?
The ties that bound us are still around us
There's no escape that I can see
And still those little things remain
That bring me happiness or pain
A cigarette that bears a lipstick's traces
An airline ticket to romantic places
And still my heart has wings
These foolish things
Remind me of you
You came, you saw, you conquered me
When you did that to me, I somehow knew that this had to be
The winds of march that make my heart a dancer
A telephone that rings - but who's to answer?
Oh, how the ghost of your clings
These foolish things
Remind me of you
Gardenia perfume ling'ring on a pillow
Wild strawb'ries only seven francs a kilo
And still my heart has wings
These foolish things
Remind me of you
I know that this was bound to me
These things have haunted me
For you've entirely enchanted me
The sigh of midnight trains in empty stations
Silk stockings thrown aside, dance invitations
Oh, how the ghost of you clings
These foolish things
Remind me of you
The smile of Garbo and the scent of roses
The waiters whistling as the last bar closes
The song that Crosby sings
These foolish things
Remind me of you
How strange, how sweet to find you still
These things are dear to me
That seem to bring you so near to me
The scent of smould'ring leaves, the wail of steamers
Two lovers on the street who walk like dreamers
Oh, how the ghost of you clings
These foolish things
Remind me of you, just you
