He knows how to talk and he knows how to fight
And all the contenders were beat out of sight
Sing, Muhammad, Muhammad Ali
He floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee

(I'm so sorry.)

 

Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer
Stickin' little white flowers all up in her hair
"Walk beside the pony
Daddy, it's my first ride"
"I know the cake looks funny
Daddy, but I sure tried"
Oh, with all that I've done wrong
I must have done something right
To deserve a hug every morning
And butterfly kisses at night

She had rings on her fingers and bells on her shoes
And I knew without asking she was into the blues
She wore scarlet begonias tucked into her curls
I knew right away she was not like other girls, other girls

Well, it's one for the money
Two for the show
Three to get ready
Now go, cat, go


But don't you
Step on my blue suede shoes
Well you can do anything
But stay off of my blue suede shoes

Oh, will you let me spin for you the dream, of my love
Endlessly I'm falling
Through ancient nights of violent blue Through days of old I've searched for you
I've stumbled into traps and mazes
On my way to your oasis
It's true, I know I'm not the same
Since my heart goes with the flame
But this is more then it could ever be, this is happiness'
 
Nobody loves me; nobody loves me, but you
And all temptations I resist
Nothing can compare to this
Nobody loves me; nobody loves me, but you
And for that I'd walk through fire
I'd give it all away in gratitude

Oh, nobody's fault but mine
Nobody's fault but mine
Trying to save my soul tonight
Oh, it's nobody's fault but mine
 
The devil he told me to roll
The devil he told me to roll
How to roll the log tonight
Nobody's fault but mine

Nobody knows you
When you're down and out.
In your pocket, not even a penny,
And as for friends, you don't have any.
 
When you get back on your feet again,
Everybody wants to be your old long-lost friend.
It's mighty strange, without a doubt,
Nobody knows you when you're down and out.

You can't get romantic on a subway line
Conductor don't like it, says you're wastin' your time
But everybody wants some
I want some too
Everybody wants some
Baby, how 'bout you?

Well, they took some honey from a tree
Dressed it up and they called it me

Everybody's trying to be my baby
Everybody's trying to be my baby
Everybody's trying to be my baby, now

And I was like baby, baby, baby oh
Like baby, baby, baby no
Like baby, baby, baby oh
I thought you'd always be mine (mine)
Baby, baby, baby oh
Like baby, baby, baby no
Like baby, baby, baby ooh
I thought you'd always be mine

Long ago and oh so far away
I fell in love with you before the second show
Your guitar, it sounds so sweet and clear
But you're not really here, it's just the radio

 

Don't you remember you told me you love me, baby
You said you'd be coming back this way again, baby
Baby, baby, baby, baby, oh baby
I love you, I really do

Senorita I'm in trouble again and I can't get free
(Senorita) You're exactly what the doctor ordered, come on talk to me
(Ah) Can't crow before I'm out of the woods
But there's exceptions to the rule
(Ah-ah) Senorita, do you need a friend? I'm in love with you

 

Catch as catch, catch as catch can
Anybody in their right mind could see, it's you and me
Oooh-ooo-ooh
Oooh-oooh


You say you're lonesome, just getting by
But you turn your eyes from me
Be sure you're hurting long before you fly 'cause, you've got me
Catch as catch, catch as catch can
Anybody in their right mind could see, you and me

 

Catch as catch, catch as catch can
When I see you, all your little guitars sing to me

Here they come again, mmmm-mm-mm
Catch us if you can, mmmm-mm-mm
Time to get a move on, mmmm-mm-mm
We will yell with all of our might

Catch us if you can
Catch us if you can
Catch us if you can
Catch us if you can

Now we gotta run, mmmm-mm-mm
No more time for fun, mmmm-mm-mm
When we're getting angry, mmmm-mm-mm
We will yell with all of our might

Well, the night was falling as the desert world
Began to settle down
In the town they're searching for us everywhere
But we never will be found


Band on the run
Band on the run
And the county judge who held a grudge
Will search for evermore
For the band on the run

It's another tequila sunrise
Starin' slowly 'cross the sky
Said goodbye
He was just a hired hand
Workin' on the dreams he planned to try
The days go by


Ev'ry night when the sun goes down
Just another lonely boy in town
And she's out runnin' 'round

And after nine rounds with Jose Cuervo
They were countin' me out I was about to give in
And after ten rounds with Jose Cuervo
I lost count and started counting again

Blacked out again down in Mexico
Jose Cuervo got me again
Wasted again with El Diablo
Alcohol my only friend

 

Smash the bottles on the reef
Wash the dirt off of my feet
That was the summer of my life

 

I’ve been drinking to forget just how good it was
I was drinking with you, then I’m drinking till noon
Now I’m drinking by myself
I’ve been drinking to forget bout the both of us
I was drinking with you, then I’m drinking till noon
Now I’m drinking by myself
Tijuana sunrise shine upon my face

Nibblin' on sponge cake
Watchin' the sun bake
All of those tourists covered with oil
Strummin' my six string on my front porch swing
Smell those shrimp they're beginnin' to boil
Wastin' away again in Margaritaville
Searchin' for my long lost shaker of salt
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
But I know it's nobody's fault

Jimmy Hendrix plays all night long in the house of a thousand guitars
Through a purple haze you can hear the song in the house of a thousand guitars
When the clock strikes 12 Robert Johnson sings in the house of a thousand guitars
Neath a delta moon and a worn brass ring in the house of a thousand guitars
There's not a dry eye when old Hank sings in the house of a thousand guitars
With the pain and the hurt love sometime brings in the house of a thousand guitars
Well you can hear Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones in the house of a thousand guitars
There will be no vultures picking on their bones in the house of a thousand guitars

My baby called me up
She said, "Why don't you ever take me out?
Pick me up in your brand new car
You shake the short change from your old fruit jar"

I put on my dancin' shoes
We headed straight for the rhythm and blues
The music was hot, but my baby was not

I've got a rocket in my pocket
I said a rocket
Finger in the socket

You may have heard of jalopies
You've heard the noise they make
But let me introduce you to my Rocket '88
Yes it's great, just won't wait
Everybody likes my Rocket '88
Baby we'll ride in style
Movin' all along

V-8 motor and this modern design
Black convertible top and the gals don't mind
Sportin' with me, ridin' all around town for joy
Blow your horn, Raymond blow your horn

Step in my Rocket and don't be late
Baby we're pullin' out about a half-past-eight
Goin' on the corner and havin' some fun
Everybody in my car is going to take a little nip
Ooh, goin' out
Oozin' and cruisin' along

I've seen everything imaginable
Pass before these eyes
I've had everything that's tangible
Honey you'd be surprised
I'm a sexual innuendo
In this burned out paradise
If you turn me on to anything
You better turn me on tonight
 
Here I am
And you're a rocket queen
I might be a little young but honey I ain't naive
Here I am and you're a rocket queen oh yeah
I might be too much
But honey you're a bit obscene

The B word is hungry, she needs to tell
So give her inches and feed her well
More days to come, new places to go
I've got to leave, it's time for a show

Here I am
Rock you like a hurricane
Here I am
Rock you like a hurricane

I took my loved one over 'cross the tracks
So she could her my man a whalin' sax
I must admit they have a rockin' band
Man they were goin' like a hurricane


That's why I go for that rock 'n' roll music
Any old way you choose it
It's got a back beat, you can't lose it
Any old time you use it
It's gotta be rock - roll music
If you wanna dance with me
