Eurythmics

A Whiter Shade Of Pale – Eurythmics

We skipped the light fandango
Turned cartwheels cross the floor
I was feeling kind of seasick
The crowd called out for more
The room was humming harder
As the ceiling flew away
When we called out for another drink
But the waiter brought a tray
*And so it was later
As the miller told his tale
That her face at first just ghostly
Turned a whiter shade of pale
You said there is no reason
And the truth is plain to see
But I wander through my playing cards
And would not let it be
I’m one of the sixteen virgins
Who are leaving for the coast
And although my eyes were open
They might just as well been closed
(*Repeat)
A whiter shade of pale
Turned a whiter shade of pale
A whiter shade of pale

A Little Of You – Eurythmics

There used to be a time
I wore my heart upon my sleeve.
There used to be a time
I’d show my gentle side to anyone
Through these years of wandering
I know I’ve been deceived.
Through these years of wandering…
And everytime you try to hurt me
You know you’ll only hurt yourself.
And everytime you try to hurt me
I know you’ll be the one to suffer
When you think you’re hurting someone.
A little of you – a little of me –
A little of you –
Is hurting someone –
Don’t tell me I’m the only one
‘Cause I don’t need that space.
Don’t ask for love
I’ll throw it back in your face.
All of these promises
Were only made to break.
All of these promises…
(Chorus repeats…)

Walk Into The Wind – Eurythmics

You have to learn to love my loving
Turn around and say you care
You have to learn to give by giving
Give me a beatnik love affair
We’ll watch the shooting stars go crazy
So what d’ya say, a definite maybe
Should we walk into the wind
Maybe fall when autumn falls
Let’s walk into the wind
You have to learn to touch by touching

Touch me, touch me if you dare
We’ve reached the end of the beginning
In this beatnik love affair
Should we walk into the wind
Maybe fall when autumn falls
Let’s walk into the wind
Before you taste another tear my love
I know a place where rainbows end
The kingdom of the final kiss is but a breath away
Here come those shooting stars again

Should we walk into the wind
Maybe fall when autumn falls
Let’s walk into the wind

Waiting In Vain – Eurythmics

From the very first time
I rest my eyes on you,boy
My heart said follow through but I know now
That I’m way down on your line
But the waiting feeling’s fine
So don’t treat me like a puppet on a string
Because I know how to do my thing
Don’t talk to me as if you think I’m dumb
I wanna know when you’re gotta come,you see
*I don’t wanna wait in a vain for your love
I don’t wanna wait in a vain for your love
I don’t wanna wait in a vain for your love
‘Cause sommer is here
And I’m still waiting there
Winter is here I’m still waiting there
Like I said It’s been three years since
I’m knocking on your door
And still I can knock some more
Ooh boy,ooh boy,is it crazy look,I wanna know now
For I to knock some more,you see
In life I know
That there is lots of grief
But your love is my relief
Tears in my eyes burn
Tears in my eyes burn
While I’m waitin’
While I’m waitin’ for my turn,you see
(*Repeat)
Like I said-
I don’t wanna,(x4)
I don’t wanna wait in vain
I don’t wanna,(x4)
I don’t wanna wait in vain
It’s been three years since
I’m knocking on your door
And still I can knock some more
Ooh boy,ooh boy,is it crazy look,I wanna know now
Like I said,the tears in my eyes burn
Tears in my eyes burn
While I’m waiting
While I’m waiting for my turn,you see
Ooh boy,ooh boy,is it crazy look,I wanna know now
For I to knock some more
In life I know there is lots of grief
But your love is my relief

Take Me To Your Heart – Eurythmics

Take me to your heart
Time after time
I try to contact you
Time after time
I try to talk to you
But you don’t take me to your heart
When I’m alone
I think you’re near me
It’s good to pretend
That you’re with me
Why don’t you take me to your heart

Take Me To The River – Eurythmics

I don’t know why I love you like I do
All the changes you put me through
Take my money,my cigarettes
I haven’t seen the worst of it yet
I wanna know,can you tell me
I’d really like to stay
*Take me to the river
Drop me in the water
Take me to the river
Drop me in the water
Wash me down,wash me down
Wash me down,wash me down
I don’t know why you treat me so bad
Think of all the thing that we could have had
Love is an ocean
And I can’t forget my sweet sixteen
I’ll never fret I wanna know,can you tell me
I’d really like to stay (*Repeat)
Love me,squeeze me Love me,tease me
Till I can’t,till I can’t
Till I can’t,till I can’t-
I don’t know why I love you like I do
All the trouble that you put me through
Sixteen candles blowin’ on the wall
And here I am the biggest fool of all
I wanna know,can you tell me I’d really like to stay
Take me to the river
Drop me in the water
Dip me in the water
Drop me in the water
Dip me in the water
Drop me in the water…

Take Me For What I Am – Eurythmics

I’d like to build a house
Without any walls
An open paradise
With a waterfall
Life is quite detestable
For some with feeble minds

Who always make the mistake of being someone else
I always make the mistake of being myself

I’d like to make a friend
Without any flaws
Who takes me for what I am
And nothing more
Life must be incredible
For those who stay out late

And always make the mistake of being someone else
I always make the mistake of being myself
They always make the mistake of being someone else
I always make the mistake of being myself

Life must be incredible
For those who stay out late

And always make the mistake of being someone else
I always make the mistake of being myself
They always make the mistake of being someone else
I always make the mistake of being myself

Paint A Rumour – Eurythmics

Paint a rumour
(What’s it gonna spread?)
Paint a rumour
(See the place go red)
I could tell you something
(Promise not to tell)
I could tell you something
(Promise not to sell)
It’s a secret
I have heard a whisper
I have heard a whisper
(What did it say?)
I have heard a whisper
(Make it go away)
Don’t believe a word of it
(Promise not to tell)
Don’t repeat a word of it
(Promise not to sell)

Jack Of All Trades – Eurythmics

jack of all trades master of none
even got lost trying to find the M1
ended up in South Shields with a couple of drunks

moved to Crouch End suburb of cool
took a few drugs acted the fool
fell in love with a girl on her harmonium stool

went round the world in the back of a van
we kept in touch with our only fan
he was short and sweet lived in Japan

the band broke up round a pool in Bangkok
to tell you the truth it didn’t come as a shock
our days were numbered like hands on a clock

so we carried on me and the serious girl
had massive hits all round the world
we got so big we both became ill

flew into London with a bit of a tan
caught the train back to Sunderland to see me old man
we had bacon and eggs from the same frying pan

to walk down the high street
avoiding a scrap
“are you Dave Stewart?”
“yeah”
:you’re a crap”
had a pint in the Beehive then home for a nap

got married in France to an Irish colleen
I was thirty three she was only thirteen
I wore orange but she wore green

now I sit and write plays for myself and my sons
they keep me amused yeah I have much more fun
than big lines of speed at quarter to one
on a peaceful Sunday morning

Jack Talking – Eurythmics

Jack talking, this is Jack talking
he said I’m coming to London
I’m sick and tired of the sun
he said I’m coming to London
I’m gonna have some fun
I says Jack talking (Jack talking to you)
Jack talking (Jack talking to you)
he said Phew I nearly got married
To a bride in black
You know she was always so angry
She’s always ready to attack
that was Jack talking (Jack talking to you)
Jack talking (Jack talking to you)
repeat
I’m gonna tell him what to do
Because he’s such a fool he’s always looking for the easy way out
There’s only love and hate time and fate
The rest is the rest is the rest is…
Jack talking (Jack talking to you)
Jack talking (Jack talking to you)
Jack talking (Jack talking to you)
Jack talking (Jack talking to you)
he said I’m finished with acting
Makes you feel like Jesus or John Wayne (Yeah!)
So I’m coming to London (Yeah!)
I’m gonna hang out in the rain (hang out in the rain)
Ah it’s Jack talking (Jack talking to you)
Jack talking (Jack talking to you)
And I love him
Instrumental… He’s divine
What’s he gonna say Jack swing it
I’m goona tell him what to do
Because he’s such a fool he’s always looking for the easy way out
There’s only love and hate time and fate
The rest is the rest is the rest is…
Jack talking (Jack talking to you)
Jack talking (Jack talking to you)
Jack talking (Jack talking to you)
Jack talking (Jack talking to you)
We better listen to that man (repeat chorus thoughout)
Because he knows things well we don’t understand
He’s got the world listening
