Well I’ve been hearing lately baby That you’re all dressed up in black I’ve been hearing lately baby That you’re all dressed up in black Tell me how does it feel On your way down I’m a diamond baby But you treat me like a stone I’m a diamond baby But you treat me like a stone So I’m on my way Leaving well enough alone They said that you were changing But I didn’t see it coming around I used to love you baby But you’ve been putting my body down They said that you were changing But I didn’t see it coming around I used to love you baby But you’ve been putting my body down When I see you baby You don’t bother to smile When I see you baby You don’t even bother to smile It’s been a long time coming I’ll be alright in a while It’s a long time coming I’ll be alright in a while

Jai Ma 05:12
Seven’s her number Green is her color Venus is on the prowl Eight is a dark house Sometimes you can’t get out All you can do is howl The serpent said it’s just a little bite And so I thought that it would be alright Jai ma, jaya jaya ma Let it ripen till the full moon You want to pick it but it’s just too soon Jai ma, jaya jaya ma Come closer to your heart’s delight Come closer to your heart’s delight Come on, closer to your heart’s delight Tonight Rose and myrtle leaf, sweet neroli She brews a potion for a love so free Jai ma, jaya jaya ma Come closer to your heart’s delight Come closer to your heart’s delight Come on closer to your heart’s delight Tonight Mama, baby, baba Mama, baby, baba Mama, baby, baba Seven’s her number Green is her color Venus is on the prowl Eight is a dark house Sometimes you can’t get out All you can do is howl Come closer Come on closer Jai ma, jaya jaya ma Come a little Come a little Jai ma, jaya jaya ma

Way back when In the beginning of time Man made the fire, then the wheel Went from a horse to an automobile He said the world is mine He took the oceans and the sky He set the borders, built the walls He won’t stop ‘til he owns it all Here we are Standing on the brink of disaster Enough is enough is enough is enough I know the answer Put a woman in charge Put a woman in charge Put a woman in charge Put a woman in charge The time has come We got to turn this world around Call the mothers Call the daughters We need the sisters of mercy now She’ll be a hero not a fool She’s got the power to change the rules She got that thing lotta men don’t have She is strong and she understands Here we are Standing on the brink of disaster Enough is enough is enough is enough I know the answer Put a woman in charge Put a woman in charge Put a woman in charge Put a woman in charge Hallelujah! It’s gonna be fantastic When the girls take over We’re gonna feel the magic So come on sisters Do what we were born to do Raise the vibration Let your heart and soul come through Put a woman in charge Put a woman in charge Put a woman in charge Put the women in charge Put a woman in charge Put a woman in charge Put a woman in charge Put a woman in charge

Sister Ruth 04:37
Sister Ruth, so many years ago She said where you may be going I will go Oh my sisters, can we do less today When the balance hangs It could go either way America’s still waters have been stirred Can the songs of love and freedom Still be heard Oh my brothers, have we gone far astray When the balance hangs It could go either way Rockabye that little child Sleepin’ in his mama’s arms Tokyo to Mexico, from here to Lebanon Will he have shelter in a storm A place to play and grow One human family, you know This life may be a moment long Turn around,you find that moment gone Give yourself to the ones you love Before they slip away When the balance hangs It could go either way Rockabye that little child Sleepin’ in his mama’s arms Tokyo to Mexico, from here to Lebanon Will he have shelter in a storm A place to play and grow One human family, you know We all know Sister Ruth, so many years ago She said where you may be going I will go Oh my sisters, can we do less today When the balance hangs It could go either way Rockabye that little child Sleepin’ in his mama’s arms Tokyo to Mexico, from here to Lebanon Every daddy’s little girl and Every mother’s son Born into this crazy world Someone’s precious one Will they have shelter in a storm A place to grow and play When the balance hangs It could go either way Either way, it could go either way Either way, it could go either way

I feel a change deep in my bones We’re here together but I’m all alone I need to know there’s nothing to fear Or are there words I don’t want to hear There’s something hiding in your eyes Something hiding­, little white lies Ooo baby, you can’t disguise Something hiding, little white lies You come home late, creep through the door In the night you don’t love me no more You used to give me all you got Did you find a new honey pot There’s something hiding in your eyes Something hiding­, little white lies Ooo baby, you can’t disguise Something hiding, little white lies Tell me that I’m crazy It’s all in my mind Tell me I’m your baby Tell me I’m the only one White lies, little white lies White lies, little white lies I used to trust you, but I’m no fool Cause you ain’t living by the golden rule Cut to the chase, don’t string me along You may be cheatin’ but I may be gone There’s something hiding in your eyes Something hiding, little white lies Ooo baby, you can’t disguise Something hiding, little white lies White lies, little white lies...

Sittin’ in a tenement And got no bread to pay the rent Somebody roll up a smoke Pass those papers Bill collector at my door And I know what he wants me for Got to have another toke Zig-Zag papers They took the water, left the pipes Left the switches, took the lights The stove is still here, but it’s broke Sittin’ here by candlelight And candles keep us warm at night We ain’t got nothing to lose Pay your dues now Cops they made a raid next door And then they got the bottom floor There’s nobody left but us two Me and you now I’m paranoid and very stoned Maybe I’m disaster prone We’re talking ‘bout the Waller Street Blues Waller Street, oh Waller Street Wah wah wah wah Waller Street The sweetest street in the Haight Hippie Nation Cole and Stanyan are so fine But Waller she’s a friend of mine Too bad you’re going all straight Tech invasion You had what you needed way back then I just wanna feel that groove again Come on make it real—love on Haight Come on make it real—love on Haight Pay your dues now Come on make it real—love on Haight Me and you now Come on make it real—love on Haight Hippie nation Come on make it real—love on Haight Tech invasion Take the best from 1968—make it real

(With a bow to and a pivot from Algernon Charles Swinburne) From too much love of living From hopes and dreams set free We thank with breath thanksgiving Whatever gods may be Cause everyone is broken And everyone is whole And in these narrow places Hold on to your soul So close your eyes and listen Your road unfolds and glistens Being here is a reason If reason need there be Cause no one lives forever And fortunes rise up never And even the slowest river Winds ever to the sea So waste no lifetime striving The earth doesn’t try to turn Just being here and loving And let your fire burn And why scan the horizon For flaws in the sun risin’ Easy come the blessings If your heart can turn So close your eyes and listen Your road unfolds and glistens Being here is a reason If reason need there be Cause no one lives forever And fortunes rise up never And even the slowest river Winds ever to the sea Even the slowest river Winds ever to the sea ~ We were made for love We were made for love We were made for love We were made for love Remember what we came here for It was not for hate, it was not for war ‘Cause it isn’t a war game, A more game, a score game If gimme is your name There’s too much to lose We get confused Forget to choose a way that gets us to better We’ve done this forever And we don’t remember We’re in this together And we were made for love We were made for love We were made for love We were made for love We were made for love Remember what we came here for Hold on to this connection It’s all that we are We got the grace and vision From the sacred medicine Transform the condition It’s a soul expedition—listen Hearts in darkness in need of healing Occupy and magnify the loving feeling Can’t name it, tame it, contain or explain it But raise up the flame for it Cause we were made for love We were made for love We were made for love We were made for love We were made for love Remember what we came here for What we came here for…
