SMOOTH OPERATOR (Sing-A-Long)
Sade

Verse
Diamond life, lover boy
We move in space with minimum waste and maximum joy
City lights and business nights
When you require streetcar desire for higher heights

No place for beginners or sensitive hearts
When sentiment is left to chance
No place to be ending but somewhere to start

Chorus

No need to ask

He's a smooth operator
Smooth operator (x3)


Bridge

Coast to coast, LA to Chicago, western male
Across the north and south to Key Largo

Love for sale

Face to face, each classic case
We shadow box and double cross
Yet need the chase

A license to love, insurance to hold
Melts all your memories and change into gold
His eyes are like angels but his heart is cold

Chorus
No need to ask
He's a smooth operator
Smooth operator (x3)


Bridge

Coast to coast, LA to Chicago, western male
Across the north and south to Key Largo

Love for sale


Smooth operator (repeat to fade)


LIKE A STAR

Corinne Bailey Rae

Verse

Just like a star across my sky
Just like an angel off the page
You have appeared to my life
Feel like I'll never be the same
Just like a song in my heart
Just like oil on my hands
Oh, I do love you

Chorus

Still wonder why it is
I don't argue like this
With anyone but you
We do it all the time
Blowing out my mind

Verse

You've got this look I can't describe
You make me feel I'm alive
When everything else is so faint
Without a doubt you're on my side
Heaven has been away too long
Can't find the words to write this song
Oh your love

Chorus

Still I wonder why it is
I don't argue like this
With anyone but you
We do it all the time
Blowing out my mind


***Music Break***


Bridge

I have come to understand the way it is
Is not a secret anymore
'Cause we've been through that before
From tonight I know that you're the only one
I've been confused and in the dark
Now I understand, yeah, yeah​


***Musical Break***


Chorus

I wonder why it is
I don't argue like this
With anyone but you
I wonder why it is
I won't let my guard down
For anyone but you
We do it all the time
Blowing out my mind


Verse

Just like a star across my sky
Just like an angel off the page
You have appeared to my life
Feel like I'll never be the same
Just like a song in my heart
Just like oil on my hands

SOMEONE LIKE YOU (Sing-A-Long)

Adele

Verse

I heard, that you're settled down
That you found a girl and you're, married now
I heard, that your dreams came true
I guess she gave you things
I didn't give to you

Old friend, why are you so shy
Ain't like you to hold back
Or hide from the light

Prechorus

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited but I
Couldn't stay away I couldn't fight it
I had hoped you'd see my face
And that you be reminded that for me it isn't over


Chorus
Never mind I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too

Don't forget me I beg

I'll remember you said
Sometimes it lasts in love
But sometimes it hurts instead
Sometimes it lasts in love
But sometimes it hurts instead yeah

Verse

You know how the time flies
Only yesterday it was the time of our lives
We were born and raised
In a summer haze

Bound by the surprise
Of our glory days

Prechorus

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited but I
Couldn't stay away I couldn't fight it
I hoped you'd see my face
And that you'd be reminded that for me it isn't over


Chorus

Never mind I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don't forget me I beg

I'll remember you said
Sometimes it lasts in love

But sometimes it hurts instead


Bridge

Nothing compares no worries or cares
Regrets and mistakes their memories made
Who would have known how bittersweet
This would taste


Chorus (x2)

Never mind I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you
Don't forget me I beg, I'll remember you said
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead

Never mind I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you
Don't forget me I beg, I'll remember you said
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead

Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead


REAL LOVE (Sing-A-Long)

Mary J. Blige

Verse
We are lovers true and through
And though we made it through the storm
I really want you to realize
I really want to put you on
I've been searching for someone
To satisfy my every need
Won't you be my inspiration
Be the real love that I need


Chorus

Real love
I'm searching for the real love
Someone to set my heart free
Real love
I'm searching for a real love


Verse

Oh when I met you I just knew
That you would take my heart and run
Until you told me how you felt for me
You said I'm not the one
So I slowly came to see
All of the things that you were made of
And now I hope my dreams and inspiration
Lead me towards a real love


Chorus

Real love
I'm searching for the real love
Someone to set my heart free
Real love
I'm searching for a real love

Bridge

Loves so true and oh baby
I thought that love was you
I thought you were the answer to
The question in my mind
But it seems that I was wrong
If I stay strong maybe

I'll find my real love

***Musical Break***


Verse

So I try my best and pray to God
He'll send me someone real
To caress me and to guide me towards
A love my heart can feel
Now I know I can be faithful
I can be your all in all
I'll give you good luvin' though the summertime,
Winter, spring, and fall


Chorus
Real love
I'm searching for the real love
Someone to set my heart free
Real love
I'm searching for a real love


MAKE YOU FEEL MY LOVE

Bob Dillon

Verse

When the rain is blowing in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I could offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love

When the evening shadows and the stars appear
And there is no one there to dry your tears
Oh, I hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love


Chorus

I know you haven't made your mind up yet
But I will never do you wrong
I've known it from the moment that we met
No doubt in my mind where you belong


Verse

I'd go hungry; I'd go black and blue
And I'd go crawling down the avenue
No, there's nothing that I wouldn't do
To make you feel my love

Chorus

I'd go hungry; I'd go black and blue
And I'd go crawling down the avenue
No, there's nothing that I wouldn't do
To make you feel my love


Verse

I could make you happy, make your dreams come true
There's nothing that I wouldn't do
Go to the ends of this Earth for you
To make you feel my love
To make you feel my love


Always on My Mind

Willie Nelson

Verse

Maybe I didn't love you
Quite as often as I could have
Maybe I didn't treat you
Quite as good as I should have
If I made you feel second best
Girl I'm sorry I was blind

Chorus

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Verse

And maybe I didn't hold you
All those lonely, lonely times
I guess I never told you
I'm so happy that you're mine
Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time


Chorus

But you were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Bridge

Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn't died
Give me, give me one more chance
To keep you satisfied
I'll keep you satisfied


Chorus

Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time
But you were always on my mind
You were always on my mind 

DON'T DREAM IT'S OVER (Sing-A-Long)

Crowded House

Verse
There is freedom within, there is freedom without
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
There's a battle ahead, many battles are lost
But you'll never see the end of the road
While you're traveling with me

Chorus

Hey now, hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won't win


Verse

Now I'm towing my car, there's a hole in the roof
My possessions are causing me suspicion but there's no proof
In the paper today tales of war and of waste
But you turn right over to the T.V. page


Chorus
Hey now, hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won't win


***Musical Break***


Verse

Now I'm walking again to the beat of a drum
And I'm counting the steps to the door of your heart
Only shadows ahead barely clearing the roof
Get to know the feeling of liberation and release


Chorus

​​Hey now, hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won't win


Don't let them win
Hey now, hey now


WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW

Burt Bacharach

Chorus

What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love sweet love

No not just for some but for everyone.

Verse

Lord, we don't need another mountain,
There are mountains and hillsides enough to climb
There are oceans and rivers enough to cross,
Enough to last till the end of time.

Chorus

What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love,
No, not just for some but for everyone.

Verse

Lord, we don't need another meadow
There are cornfields and wheat fields enough to grow
There are sunbeams and moonbeams enough to shine
Oh listen, lord, if you want to know.


Chorus
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love,
No, not just for some but for everyone.


KILLING ME SOFTLY (Sing-A-Long)

Roberta Flack


Chorus

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song


Verse
I heard he sang a good song, I heard he had a style
And so I came to see him to listen for a while
And there he was this young boy, a stranger to my eyes


Chorus

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song


Verse

I felt all flushed with fever, embarrassed by the crowd
I felt he found my letters and read each one out loud
I prayed that he would finish but he just kept right on

Chorus

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song


Verse

He sang as if he knew me in all my dark despair
And then he looked right through me as if I wasn't there
But he just came to singing, singing clear and strong

Bridge

Ohhhh.....

La la la....


Chorus

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song

LAY ME DOWN

Sam Smith
Verse

Yes I do, I believe
That one day I will be, where I was
Right there, right next to you
And it's hard, the days just seem so dark
The moon, and the stars, are nothing without you
Your touch, your skin, where do I begin?
No words can explain, the way i’m missing you
Deny this emptiness, this hole that i’m inside
These tears, they tell their own story

Prechorus

You told me not to cry when you were gone
But the feeling’s overwhelming, it's much too strong

Chorus

Can I lay by your side, next to you, you
And make sure you’re alright
I’ll take care of you,
And I don’t want to be here if I can’t be with you tonight


Verse

I’m reaching out to you
Can you hear my call 
This hurt that I’ve been through
I’m missing you, missing you like crazy


Chorus

Can I lay by your side, next to you, to you
And make sure you’re alright
I’ll take care of you,
And I don’t want to be here if I can’t be with you tonight


Bridge

Lay me down tonight, lay me by your side
Lay me down tonight
Lay me by your side

Chorus

Can I lay by your side, next to you, you


​MORE THAN WORDS (Sing-A-Long)

Extreme

Verse

Saying I love you 
Is not the words I want to hear from you 
It's not that I want you 
Not to say, but if you only knew 
How easy it would be to show me how you feel 


Prechorus

More than words is all you have to do to make it real 
Then you wouldn't have to say that you love me 
'Cause I'd already know 


Chorus

​What would you do if my heart was torn in two 
More than words to show you feel 
That your love for me is real 
What would you say if I took those words away 
Then you couldn't make things new 
Just by saying I love you

​La di da, da di da, di dai dai da

More than words

​La di da, da di da,


Verse

Now I've tried to talk to you andmake you understand 
All you have to do is close your eyes 
And just reach out your hands

And touch me 
Hold me close don't ever let me go 


Prechorus
More than words is all I ever needed you to show 
Then you wouldn't have to say that you love me 
'Cause I'd already know


Chorus

What would you do if my heart was torn in two 
More than words to show you feel 
That your love for me is real 
What would you say if I took those words away 
Then you couldn't make things new 
Just by saying I love you

EVERYBODY WANTS TO RULE THE WORLD (Sing-A-Long)

Verse

Welcome to your life
There's no turning back
Even while we sleep
We will find you
Acting on your best behaviour
Turn your back on mother nature
Everybody wants to rule the world

It's my own remorse
Help me to decide
Help me make the most
Of freedom and of pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever

Chorus

Everybody wants to rule the world

Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
When they do I'll be right behind you
So glad we've almost made it
So sad they had to fade it

Everybody wants to rule the world

***Musical Break***



Verse

I can't stand this indecision
Married with a lack of vision

Everybody wants to rule the world

I wanna tell you baby

The changes I've been going through

Till you come back to me

I don't know what I'm gonna do

And what to say, to make you come again
Come back to me again
Back in my arms again

You said you'd be coming back this way again baby
