Old Medley: Dance On A Volcano-Lamb Lies down On Broadway...

Old Medley
(Dance On A Volcano / The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway / The Musical Box / Firth Of Fifth / I Know What I Like / Thats All / Illegal Alien / Follow You, Follow Me)



Holy mother of God
You've got to go faster than that to get to the top
Dirty old mountain all covered in smoke
She can turn you to stone so you better start doing it right
Yes, you better start doing it right
Yes, you better start doing it right

You're halfway up and you're halfway down
And the pack on your back is turning you around
Throw it away, you won't need it up there
But remember, you don't look back whatever you do
Yes, you better start doing it right (all right)
Yes, you better start doing it right

And the lamb lies down (down, down, down) on Broadway.

Early morning Manhattan,
Ocean winds blow on the land.
The Movie-Palace is now undone,
The all-night watchmen have had their fun.
Sleeping cheaply on the midnight show,
It's the same old ending-time to go.
Get out!
It seems they cannot leave their dream.
There's something moving in the sidewalk steam,

And the lamb lies down (down, down, down) on Broadway.

Nightime's flyers feel their pains.
Drugstore takes down the chains.
Metal motion comes in bursts,
But the gas station can quench that thirst.
Suspension cracked on unmade road
The trucker's eyes read 'Overload'
And out on the subway,
Rael Imperial Aerosol Kid
Exits into daylight, spraygun hid,

And the lamb lies down (down, down, down)on Broadway.
On Broadway
On Broadway
On Broadway
On Broadway

We say the lights are always bright on Broadway.
we say there's always magic in the air.
Tonight, tonight, tonight
They say the lights are always bright on Broadway.
They say there's always magic in the air.

She's a lady, she's got time. Ooh
Brush back you hair, and let me get to know your face. (sssshhh, aaaahh, ssssh, aaaah)
She's a lady, she's mine. Ooh
Brush back you hair, and let me get to know your flesh. (just a little bit) (sssshhh, aaaaah, sssshh, aaaah)

I've been waiting here for so long
and all this time that passed me by.
It doesn't seems to matter now. (Not now)
You stand there with your fixed expression
Just casting doubt on all I have to say.
So Why don't you touch me, touch me?
Why don't you touch me, touch me?
Touch me now, now, now, now, now?
Now, now, now, now, NOW!!
Now, now, now, now, NOW!!
Now, now, now, now, NOW!!
Now, now, now, never NOW!!

(solo)

It's one o'clock and it's time for lunch, (dongie dongie dongie)
When the sun beats down and I lie on the bench,
I can always hear them talk.

There's always been Ethel:
"Jacob, wake up! You've got to tidy your room now."

And then Mister Lewis:
"Isn't it time that he was out on his own?"

Over the garden wall, two little lovebirds - cuckoo to you!
Keep them moving blades sharp...

I know what I like, and I like what I know;
Getting better in your wardrobe,
stepping one beyond your show, show show, show show

I know, yes I know what I like, and I like, I like what I know;
Is getting better in your wardrobe,
stepping one beyond your show
Your show
You know that is your show
Show show
You know that is your show
Your show, you know, you know that is your show

(solo pandeiro)

When the sun beats down and I lie on the bench,
I can always hear them talk.
Me, I'm just a lawnmower,
you can tell me by the way I walk. WALK!!

Just as I thought it was going alright
I find out I'm wrong, when I thought I was right
Its always the same, it's just a shame, that's all
I could say day, you'd say night
tell it's black when I know that it's white
Its always the same, it's just a shame, that's all

No no no, It's not fun being an illegal alien
No no no, It's not fun being an illegal alien
No no no, I tell you it's not fun being an illegal alien
No no no, no no no it's not fun being an illegal alien

(Must be sometime, I know missunderstanding..
must be sometime, I miss you)

I will follow you will you follow me
All the days and nights that we know will be
I will stay with you will you stay with me
Just one single tear in each passing year

I will follow you will you follow me
All the days and nights that we know will be
I will stay with you will you stay with me
Just one single tear in each passing year

Yeah, that will be

Ooooooohh (36x)

(solo)

I know, Yes I know what I like, and I like, I like what I know (I know, I know, I know)
Is getting better in your wardrobe,
stepping one beyond your show.
Your show, You know that's your show
YOUR SHOW!!!
