									Shine                                           The Mermaid                                        Straighten Up And Fly Right

You, you‟re such a big star to me,              One Friday morn when we set sail,                  The buzzard took the monkey for a ride in the air
You‟re everything I want to be                  And our ship not far from the land,                The monkey thought that ev‟rything was on the square
But you‟re stuck in a hole                      We there did espy a fair pretty maid,              The buzzard tried to throw the monkey off his back
And I want you to get out                       With a comb and a glass in her hand,               The monkey grabbed his neck and said
I don‟t know what there is to see               her hand, her hand,                                “Now listen Jack”
But I know that it‟s time to leave              With a comb and a glass in her hand.
We‟re all just pushing along                                                                       Chorus:
Trying to figure it out, out, out, 0h           While the raging seas did roar,                    Straighten up and fly right x 3
                                                And the stormy winds did blow,                     Cool down papa, don‟t you blow your top
Your anticipation pulls you down                And we jolly sailor boys were up, up above,        Ain‟t no use in jivin‟ what‟s the use in divin‟?
When you can have it all                        And the land-lubbers lying down below,             Straighten up and fly right
You can have it all…….                          below, below,                                      Cool down papa don‟t you blow your top.
So come on, so come on,                         And the land-lubbers lying down below
Get it on, don‟t know what you‟re waiting for                                                      The buzzard told the monkey “You‟re choking me
Your time is coming don‟t be late, Hey          (Basses)                                           Release your hold and I‟ll set you free”
So come on see the light on your face           Then up spoke the captain of our gallant ship      The monkey looked the buzzard right dead in the eye
Let it shine, just let it shine                 Who at once our peril did see,                     “Your story‟s touching but it sounds like a lie”
Let it shine.                                   „I have married a wife in fair Bristol town,
                                                And this night she a widow will be,                Chorus:
Stop! Being so hard on yourself                 will be, will be,                                  Straighten up and fly right x 3
It‟s not very good for your health              And this night she a widow will be.‟               Cool down papa don‟t your blow your top.
I know that you can change                      Chorus                                             The buzzard told the monkey “You‟re choking me
So clear your head and come round                                                                  Release your hold and I‟ll set you free”
You only have to open your eyes                 (Sopranos)
                                                Then up spoke the little cabin boy,                The monkey looked the buzzard right dead in the eye
You might just get a big surprise                                                                  “Your story‟s touching but it sounds like a lie”
And it might feel good                          And a fair-haired lad was he,
And you might want to smile, smile, smile, oh   „I‟ve a mother and father in fair Clevedon town,   Chorus:
                                                And this night they will weep for me,              Straighten up and fly right x 3
Don‟t you let your demons pull you down         for me, for me,                                    Cool down papa don‟t your blow… your ….top.
„cos You can have it all, etc.                  And this night they will weep for me.‟
                                                Chorus                                             …. fly right ooooooo.

Hey, let me know you                            Then three times around went our gallant ship,
                Let me know you                 And three times around went she,
You‟re all that matters to me                   For the want of a lifeboat they both went down,
                You‟re all that matters to me   as she sank to the bottom of the sea,
                                                the sea, the sea,
So come on, so come on,                         As she sank to the bottom of the sea.
Get it on etc.                                  Chorus
                                                (below…below.)

The Song of the Wandering Aengus                        Happy Talk                    Durme, Durme
       (poem by W.B.Yeats)
                                            Happy Talk, keep talkin‟ Happy Talk,
     I went out to the hazel wood             Talk about things you like to do        Durme, Durme ijiko de madre,
    Because a fire was in my head              You‟ve got to have a dream,            Durme, Durme, sin ansia i dolor, x 2
   And cut and peeled a hazel wand              If you don‟t have a dream,
      And tied a berry to a thread        How you gonna have a dream come true?       Sienti goia palavrikos de tu madre
And when white moths were on the wing                                                 Las palavras de Sh‟ma Israel x 2
 And mothlike stars were flickering out   1. Talk about a moon floatin‟ in the sky
    I dropped the berry in a stream              Lookin‟ like a lily on a lake
     And caught a little silver trout       Talk about a bird learnin‟ how to fly     Durme, Durme, ijiko de madre
                 (x2)                        Makin‟ all the music he can make         Kon ermozura de Sh‟ma Israel x 2
                                                              Ch
    When I had laid it on the floor                                                   Durme, Durme, ijiko de madre
    I went to blow the fire aflame         2. Talk about a star Lookin‟ like a toy    Durme, Durme, sin ansia I dolor x 2
  But something rustled by the door        Peekin‟ through the branches of a tree
 And someone called me by my name            Talk about a girl, talk about a boy
   It had become a glimmering girl           Countn‟ all the ripples on the sea
    With apple blossom in her hair                            Ch
  Who called me by my name and ran                          (doos)
 And faded through the brightening air      3. Talk about a boy sayin‟ to the girl,
                 (x2)                             „Golly baby I‟m a lucky cuss‟
                                             Talk about the girl sayin‟ to the boy,
     Now I am old with wandering                „You and me is lucky to be us!‟
  Through hollow lands and hilly lands                        Ch
   I will find out where she has gone
  And kiss her lips and take her hands             ..if you don‟t talk happy
  And walk among long dappled grass             and you never have a dream
 And pluck till time and times are done   then you‟ll never have a dream come true
     The silver apples of the moon                        ….come true.
     The golden apples of the sun
                  (x2)
