The Doobie Brothers

8th Avenue Shuffle – The Doobie Brothers

Hey, hey, honey, what’s on your mind
Well, you said that sleepin’ with a poor band’s not your style
Ain’t that just a little unkind
Hey, Marlon Brando, what would you do in a spot like this
I don’t play as your pawn tonight
Doin’ the New York Hustle with a hundred dollar miss
Summer night in the city
New York girls they always make you feel so fine
There’s music, and I can always hear it playin’
New York Nights and there’s music in the streets

A doin’ the Eighth Avenue Shuffle on a Friday afternoon
With the hum of a thousand engines
Singin’ that old familiar tune
And now yakety yak and don’t talk back
When a guy lay me down with my Pontiac
Tell those high school queens of mine that the
Prom was for your monkey shine

Try ‘n’ a catch a cab in New York City
New York girls are oh, so pretty
Try ‘n’ a catch a cab in New York City
New York girls make you feel so fine
Try ‘n’ a catch a cab in New York City
New York girls are oh, so pretty
Try ‘n’ a catch a cab in New York City
Music in the streets

Another night, another town
I’m out on the road and ther’s no one around
And it’s rainin’, yeah, it’s rainin’
Silence is all around
It’s cold and lonely, oh darlin’, if only I could feel it
Oh, can you feel it

Eighth Avenue Shuffle on a Friday afternoon
With the hum of a thousand engines
Singin’ that old familiar tune
Hey, Marlon Brando, do you agree it feels so fine
Doin’ the New York Hustle
These girls are doin’ the monkey shine

Summer night in the city
New York girls they always make you feel so fine
There’s music, and I can always hear it playin’
New York Nights and there’s music in the streets

Take Me To The Highway – The Doobie Brothers

Drove my car to the top of the hill
And I looked out across the town
I got the urge to move again
I guess I’ll never settle down
We talked about things getting better
But they still looked the same to me
Could be a near sighted heart
Seein’ what it wants to see

So take me to the highway
Take me far from here
These days I’m not seein’ anything too clear

Nothin’ seems to move fast enough
When time isn’t on your side
Can’t seem to keep the wheels in motion
No matter how hard you try

I need another point of view
Someplace I’ve never seen
Keepin’ my eyes wide open
Goin’ where I’ve never been

So take me to the highway
Take me far from here
These days I’m not seein’ anything too clear

I’ve been lookin’ for an answer
And I’ve got a long way to go
But when I reach that place
I know I’ll find what I’m lookin’ for

Take Me In Your Arms – The Doobie Brothers

I know you’re leavin’ me behind
I’m seein’ you darlin’ for the very last time
Show a little tenderness before you go
Please let me feel your embrace once more
Take me in your arms and rock me, rock me a little while

We all must feel heartache sometimes
Right now, right now I’m feelin’ mine
I’ve tried my best to be strong, but I’m not able
I’m like a helpless child left in a cradle
Before you leave me behind let me feel happy one more time

Take me in your arms and rock me, rock me a little while

I’m losin’ you and my happiness
My life is so dark I must confess
I’ll never, never see your smiling face no more
I’ll never, never hear your knock upon my door
Before you leave me, leave me behind
Let me feel happy one more time

Take me in your arms and rock me, rock me a little while
