Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing

Everybody’s got a thing
But some don’t know how to handle it
Always reachin’ out in vain
Just taking the things not worth havin’

Don’t you worry ’bout a thing
Don’t you worry ’bout a thing, Mama
‘Cause I’ll be standing on the side when you check it out

They say your style of life’s a drag
That you must go other places
Just don’t you feel too bad
When you get fooled by smiling faces

Don’t you worry ’bout a thing
Don’t you worry ’bout a thing, Mama ‘Cause I’ll be standing on the side when you check it

out When you get off your trip

Don’t you worry ’bout a thing
Don’t you worry ’bout a thing

Ba ba ba ba ba etc.

Don’t you worry ’bout a thing
Don’t you worry ’bout a thing, Mama ‘Cause I’ll be standing on the side when you check it

out When you get off your trip

Everybody needs a change
A chance to check out the new
You’re the only one who see
The changes you take yourself through

Don’t you worry ’bout a thing
Don’t you worry ’bout a thing, Mama
‘Cause I’ll be standin’ in the side when you check it out

Don’t you worry ’bout a thing
Don’t you worry ’bout a thing
Don’t you worry ’bout a thing
Don’t you worry ’bout a thing

No One Is Alone

No one here to guide you now you’re on your own
Only me beside you still your not alone
No one is alone truly no one is alone

Sometimes people leave you half-way through the wood
Others may deceive you, you decide what’s good
You decide alone but no one is alone

People make mistakes, father’s, mother’s
People make mistakes holding to their own
Thinking they’re alone

Honor their mistakes
Everybody makes
One another’s terrible mistakes

Witches can be right, giants can be good
You decide what’s right, you decide whats good
Just remember

Someone is on your side, someone else is not
Well we’re seeing our side maybe we forgot
They are not alone, no one is alone

Hard to see the light now just don’t let it go
Things will come out right now, we can make it so

Someone is on your side, no one is alone

I’m Still Standing

You could never know what it’s like
Your blood like winter freezes just like ice
And there’s a cold lonely light that shines from you
You’ll wind up like the wreck you hide behind that mask you use

And did you think this fool could never win
Well look at me, I’m coming back again
I got a taste of love in a simple way
And if you need to know while I’m still standing you just fade away

Don’t you know I’m still standing better than I ever did
Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid
I’m still standing after all this time
Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind

I’m still standing yeah yeah yeah
I’m still standing yeah yeah yeah

Once I never could hope to win
You starting down the road leaving me again
The threats you made were meant to cut me down
And if our love was just a circus you’d be a clown by now

You know I’m still standing better than I ever did
Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid
I’m still standing after all this time
Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind

I’m still standing yeah yeah yeah
I’m still standing yeah yeah yeah

Don’t you know I’m still standing better than I ever did
Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid
I’m still standing after all this time
Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind

I’m still standing yeah yeah yeah
I’m still standing yeah yeah yeah

I’m still standing yeah yeah yeah
I’m still standing yeah yeah yeah

Over The Rainbow

When all the world is a hopeless jumble And the raindrops tumble all around Heaven opens a magic lane

When all the clouds darken up the skyway There’s a rainbow highway to be found Leading from your windowpane

To a place behind the sun Just a step beyond the rain

Somewhere, over the rainbow Way up high There’s a land that I heard of Once in a lullaby

Somewhere, over the rainbow Skies are blue And the dreams that you dare to dream Really do come true

Some day I’ll wish upon a star and wake up where the clouds are far behind me

Where troubles melt like lemon drops away above the chimney tops That’s where you’ll find me

Somewhere, over the rainbow Blue birds fly Birds fly over the rainbow Why then, oh, why can’t I?

If happy little bluebirds fly Beyond the rainbow Why, oh, why can’t I?

America The Beautiful


O beautiful for patriot dream, that sees beyond the years 
Thine alabaster cities gleam, undimmed by human tears 
America, America, God shed His grace on thee 
And crown thy good with brotherhood, from sea to shining sea

O beautiful for heroes proved, in liberating strife 
Who more than self their country loved, and mercy more than life 
America, America, May God they gold refine 
Till all success be nobleness, and every gain divine 

O beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain 
For purple mountain majesties, above the fruited plain 
America, America, God shed His grace on thee 
And crown thy good with brotherhood, from sea to shining sea
