A Really Bad Case Of The Blues

Copyright  Bod 2012

 

My head is spinning - I feel so ill

My stomachís turning - Iím a little green around the gills

I called my doctor Ė My doctor said,

ďYour diagnosis is quite simple Ė The problemís in your headĒ

She thinks that my prognosis doesnít look so good too

She said Iíve got a really bad case of the blues

 

My visionís blurry and itís hard for me to speak

My knees are shaking Ė I could really use a good nightís sleep

I called my lawyer Ė He hasnít got a clue

He said, ďIíd like to help you but I donít know who to sueĒ

And when the verdict came in, he polled the jury, too

They said I have a really bad case of the blues

 

            If I had pneumonia - Or if I had the flu

           Iíd take a hot bath and drink some tea and honey too

            Iíd add a little lemon - And maybe a raw egg

           And then Iíd go lay down and pull the blanket up over my head

 

My heart is broken - I feel so bad

I hurt in places that I never knew I had

I called my mother - She said to me,

ďI feel so sorry for you sweetie but the truth is plain to see

Thereís just one explanation for what youíre going through

Itís because you have a really bad case of the bluesĒ

 

            I donít want ibuprofen or a dose of some vaccine

            Penicillin wouldnít help and Iím allergic to codeine

            I just want to feel normal - And I donít know what to do

            And I have this sinking feeling that itís all because of you

 

My body aches - My nerves are shot

I may have slipped a disc but no oneís really sure of what Iíve got

My car mechanic checked under my hood

He said my Saab is fine but that I donít look so good

He said I need an overhaul thatís been long overdue

He thinks I have a really bad case of the blues

 

I guess I should admit what everybody says is true

Iíve got a really bad case of the blues

Iíve got a really bad case of the blues

 

Iíve got a sinking feeling that itís all because of you

Iíve got a really bad case of the blues

Iíve got a really bad case of the blues

Some Way, Somehow

Some way, somehow - I'll get over you

Some way, somehow Ė It's the best thing I'll ever do

I will harden my heart Ė I will make a vow
To get over you some way, somehow
 
The day will come - I will leave you behind

The day will come - It's just a matter of time

I will bury the past Ė Whatís done is done

I will leave you behind - when the day will come

 

I gave you my heart Ė but you took my soul

I tried to draw you in Ė you left me out in the cold

And every time that you did  Ė  it tore me apart

I guess I wasnít so smart

Some way, somehow - I will break the chain

Some way, somehow Ė Iíll get back on my feet again

You fooled me before Ė but that wonít happen now

I will break the chain, some way, somehow

 

You never gave in - I never gave up

Everything that I did was never quite good enough

Your hold on me was so tight  - You never cut me some slack

How could you treat me like that

 

Some way, somehow - Iíll get over you

Some way, somehow Ė if itís the last thing Iíll ever do

I will harden my heart Ė I will make a vow

To get over you some way, somehow

 

I will leave you behind - some way, somehow

I will break the chain - some way, somehow

 

Some way, somehow - some way, somehow

Some way, somehow - some way, somehow

Some way, somehow - some way, somehow

Some way, somehow

A Perfect World

Copyright  Bod and Alpert 2010 

 

The world is filled with people who are just the same as you and me

What will it take before we treat each other as we should

In a perfect world we all can see the good in each and everyone

Open up your eyes and look around Ė if only we all would

 

If you want someone to smile at you and make you feel like theyíre your friend

Just remember that the smile you give will be returned to you

In a perfect world we all can see the good in each and everyone

Open up your eyes and look around Ė it isnít hard to do

 

We can make a perfect world

If you want it we can make a perfect world

We can make this dream come true

Thereís so much that we can do

If we all work together we can make a perfect world

 

We can have a perfect world

If you want it we can have a perfect world

Letís not be afraid to try

Donít let one more day go by

Letís all come together and weíll make a perfect world

 

In a perfect world we all can live together side by side in peace

In a perfect world nobody ever has to feel afraid

In a perfect world it wouldnít matter what is yours and what is mine

Open up your eyes and look around Ė weíre running out of time

 

We can make a perfect world

If you want it we can make a perfect world

We can make this dream come true

Thereís so much that we can do

If we all work together we can make a perfect world

 

We can have a perfect world

If you want it we can have a perfect world

Letís not be afraid to try

Donít let one more day go by

Letís all come together and weíll make a perfect world

 

In a perfect world weíll never have to live under the cloud of war

And weíll treat the world and everything thatís in it with respect

We wonít drill for oil, pollute the air or turn our backs on those in need

Open up your eyes and look around Ė itís time that we all see

 

That we can make a perfect world

If you want it we can make a perfect world

We can make this dream come true

Thereís so much that we can do

If we all work together we can make a perfect world

 

We can have a perfect world

If you want it we can have a perfect world

Letís not be afraid to try

Donít let one more day go by

Letís all come together and weíll make a perfect world

 

Letís not be afraid to try

Donít let one more day go by

Because weíre running out time Ė letís make a perfect world

 

It may sound naÔve to say

We can start this right away

But let us not waste one more day Ė letís make a perfect world

 

When You Were My Baby

Copyright  Bod and Alpert   2011

 

When you were my baby

I had sunshine when it rained

When you were my baby

I never saw a cloudy day

 

My life was sweet and everyone Iíd meet could see that I was in heaven - I was truly in heaven

You were the world to me and anyone could see that you were my everything - Baby, you were my everything

 

When you were my baby

I had the world on the end of a string

When you were my baby

I had a smile for every living thing

 

The sun and stars could never shine as bright or light my life the way you could - Oh the way only you could

You were my day and night and everything was right when you let

me love you - There was no one above you

 

When you were my baby

 

Iíll never know what made you leave one day without a word

Oh was it something that I might have said or something

that you heard

I only know that you will always be a part of me

And I pray that soon youíll come back where you used to be

 

When you were my baby

  

You were my day and night and everything was right when you

let me love you - Oh how I loved you

 

When you were my baby

 

 

I had sunshine when it rained when you were my baby 

I had the world in the palm of my hand when you were my baby 

I had everything I desired, nothing else was required

When you were my baby
