If No-One Sang lyrics

ALBUM: IF NO-ONE SANG

A-1: If No-One Sang (Howard/Blaikley)

If no-one sang and the only sounds
Were the wind and the waves of the sea
If no voice rang, with a song of joy
Then what would this whole life mean to me
With no way to express how it feels

Loving and living, seeking and giving
What would this world be if nobody would sang?

 


A-1: Where From Where To (Howard/Blaikley)
Vocal: Dozy

As a child life’s full of laughter,
There’s no thought of what comes after,          
Playing in the sunshine of our years

Mother’s cooking, bed at seven,
Birthdays puppies, God’s in heaven,
Night lights to protect us from our fears

Where from, where to, what does it mean?
Where from, where to, is like a dream 

Childhood’s gone and changing faces
Spur me on to higher places,    
Making love and money, just for show 

But some nights I wake up cold,
And realize I’ll soon be old,     
And will it really matter, when I go

Where from, where to, what does it mean?
Where from, where to, is like a dream

 


A-2: I’ve Got A Feeling ( Howard/Blaikley)

Walkin’ by the river,
Give me kinda shiver
Strange sensation down my spine
Hot, cold, that vibration
Could be imagination
You’re out givin’ me the sign

I’ve got a feeling, I can’t explain,
Like an explosion deep in my brain
I got a feeling, drives me insane
I got a feeling, without a name

Smashed by things we brought up
Wonder if I oughta
Do the things I wanna do
Stop! Go ! That’s frustration
Strange new situation
But it’s just a game to you

I’ve got a feeling, I can’t explain,
Like an explosion deep in my brain
I got a feeling, drives me insane
I got a feeling, without a name

 


A-3: In A Matter Of A Moment (Howard/Blaikley)

In a matter of a moment,
In a twinkling of an eye,
You can fall in love so easy,
You don’t even have to try.

In a matter of a moment,
She can walk into your heart,
You won’t need no one to tell you
That one day you’ll have to part

Love while you may, live for today.
In a matter of a moment,
You will ask her if she’ll stay,
She will smile at you so gently,
And then quickly turn away.

Love while you may, live for today.
In a matter of a moment,
You will look and find her gone,
Like a swallow in the winter,
She can’t help but travel on.

 


A-6: Mama, Mama (Amory Kane)
Vocal: Dozy

Mama mama, listen to me,
Treat me better than you did before,
I don’t have time to be your keeper
And I’m not gonna cry anymore

Baby baby, you’re so pretty,
Men just can’t help but fall for you,
My first mistake was to let you blind me,
Don’t worry mama ain’t making two

Mama mama, won’t you listen to me,
Treat me better than you did before,
Don’t have time to be your keeper
And I’m not gonna cry anymore

Baby baby, don’t you worry,
Gypsy woman told me true,
If I catch you running around,
She gonna lay a spell on you

You used to come in late at night now,
Tell me that you couldn’t sleep,
If I find out you’ve been cheatin’ on me
Better pray the Lord your soul to keep

Mama mama, listen to me,
Treat me better than you did before,
Don’t have time to be your keeper
And I’m not gonna cry anymore

 


B-1: If I Were A Carpenter (Tim Hardin)

If I were a carpenter, and you were a lady
Would you marry me anyway
Would you have my baby

If a tinker were my trade, would you still find me
Carrying the pots I made, following behind me
Share my love through loneliness
Share my love through sorrow
I’ve given you my onlyness
Come and give me yours tomorrow

If I worked my hands in wood, would you still love me
Answer me, say: “yes I would, I’d put you above me”

If I were a miller, at my mill wheel grinding
Would you miss your colour box
And your soft shoe shining

If I were a carpenter, and you were a lady
Would you marry me anyway
Would you have my baby

 


B-3: Look At Me (Brian Morris)

Look at me, I’ve got a funny red nose,
An enormous red nose, look at me,
And what do you see ?
Look at me, I’ve got a smile on my face,
A painted smile on my face, look at me,
And what do you see ?    

Look, Mummy, look at the clown
See how he laughs, and how he falls down,
But look, Mummy, can you tell me why,
He makes me laugh with a tear in his eye ?

Look at me, all dressed up making them grin
Backstage there’s a bottle of gin, look at me,
I hope that I’m making you laugh ?
Look behind the mask if you can,
Behind it you’ll find a lonely man
Bells on his fingers, bells on his toes,
A broken man in witticked clothes ?

Look at me, many’s the tear I have shed          
Just wishin’ that I could be dead, look at me,
And what do you see ?
It’s on with the make-up and time to start,
A clown who can laugh
Because someone has broken his heart,

Look at me – ah look at me
Ah, I’ve got a smile on my face…
Got a nose, red nose… Look at me !

 


B-4: The Tide Is Turning (Howard/Blaikley)

I sail a river, down to the sea,
I hear the ocean, it’s calling to me
I walk alone, on the long empty strand,
Past the fingers of driftwood that reach from the sand
The tide is turning, turning, turning,
The tide is turning, running back, running back

Borne on the wind is the cry of a bird
Flashing wings over water a dry breeze has stirred
Go find my love, tell her all that I feel
Tell her everything’s changing, and this time for real
The tide is turning, turning, turning,
The tide is turning, running back, running back

There will be rainbows, there will be sun
Where there were two, there will be one

Go find my love, tell her all that I feel
Tell her everything’s changing, and this time for real
The tide is turning, turning, turning,
The tide is turning, running back, running back

 


B-5: Break Out (Illingworth/March)

And where I’m going, and I know where I’ll be
And I know that I’ll find some things
That made my life begin
Now the world is neither good nor bad,
The whole thing’s up to you
If you just breakout and be free
Yeah baby, baby, baby  
Breakout and you’ll see – come on, now baby
You’re gonna see,
Then you’ll be a
Livin’ lovin’ walkin’ talkin’ beautiful person
Who’s not afraid to know who you – you are

Yeah now, baby – breakout and be free
Yeah baby, baby, baby  
Breakout and you’ll see

Just around the corner, is a place few people see
A house dressed, home of love and peace,
A place for you and me,
If you want to share this world with me,
Then I could take you there  
Wish you would breakout and be free
Yeah baby, baby, baby
Breakout and you’ll see – now, come on, now
You’re gonna see
Then you’ll be a
Livin’ lovin’ walkin’ talkin’ beautiful person
Who’s not afraid to know who you – you are

Come on now baby – you’re gonna see
Then you’ll be a
Livin’ lovin’ walkin’ talkin’ beautiful person
Who’s not afraid to know who you – you are

 


B-6: Time To Take Off (Albert Hammond)

Time to take off cause my flight number’s called
And it’s time we were saying goodbye
Time to take off cause the Caravelle waits
And I don’t want you seein’  me cry
Why won’t you just let me go ?
Don’t start again, no no no, no no no, no no no

Time to take off but you hold me too tight,
You don’t know what you’re putting me through
Time to take off and you’re making it hard
And not only for me but for you
Goodbye like this is all wrong
We’d bett’ let go on and on, and on, and on too long

Time to take off cause the time rushes by
And I don’t want to be left behind
Time to take off but don’t kiss me again
Or you’ll soon have me changing my mind
You know that I’ve got to go
Don’t start again oh no no no no no no no no
No no no, no no no, no no no, no no no…

 


B-6: If No-One Sang (Howard/Blaikley)

If no-one sang, and the only sounds
Were the wind and the waves of the sea
If no voice rang, with a song of joy
Then what would this whole life mean to me
With no way to express how it feels
Loving and living, seeking and giving,
What would this world be if nobody sang ?
