*My Friend

(Tim Davis / Boz Scaggs)

So you think you know
Just what goes on
Inside your head
My friend

There is so much more
Than you and I
Can comprehend

Things that make you laugh
Things that make you cry
Let you love
When you feel like you wanna die

There's no answer
To the questions
That we find inside
My friend

But when we start
To wonder why
We wind up further behind
My friend

All we see
Has always been shown
But there's so many things
That I've never known

So you think you know
My friend
But you don't know
My friend
My friend
You think you know
But you don't know

All for one
And one for all
It's everything
Or nothing at all
Listen my friend
You don't know
No my friend
You don't know


*Overdrive

(Boz Scaggs)

Well the room is a cyclone
And you are in the eye
There ain't no movement
Things that could die
But the reelin' and the spinnin'
Of the rock and roll sides
Will all be gone before midnight
And die before sunrise

You better go to overdrive
Go to overdrive
If you know what it is
And you wanna stay alive
You better go to overdrive
Go to overdrive

Yes the corner's full of monkeys
And your ear drum's full of lies
Time is out the window
And there's echoes in your sides
They've been burnin' down your walls
Ever since the peep of dawn
And now the dealer's in the fireplace
Trying to turn it on

You better go to overdrive
Go to overdrive
If you know that it's time
And you oughtta take a dive
You better go to overdrive
Go to overdrive

Go to overdrive
Go to overdrive
You know what it is
And you wanna stay alive
You better go to overdrive
Go to overdrive

Now the light road's gettin' restless
Cause he knows your overdue
But it's just another train ride
Bein' all the same to you
And the last shot's at your finger tips
Like that flicker in the grass
And the last cord hits the ashes
And you know you gotta pass

You better go to overdrive
Go to overdrive
If you know that it's time
And you oughtta take a dive
You better go to overdrive
Go to overdrive


*Dime A Dance Romance

Steve Miller Band

(Boz Scaggs)

Maybe she's just another sweet thing
Just a lookin' to go for a ride
Looking to see what it's all about
Before she can be satisfied

Or maybe she's cool
And still going to school
And not lookin' for no man
To write a book
Or make her cook
Or hold her dishpan hands

She could a duchess or even a dame
Or a lady from over the hill
Yes come on honey
What's the name of your thrill
We'll try to shake it
Come on baby let's find that old hill
We're bound to make it
Moons high and I'm dry
Come on

(Ha cha ooh la la
Ha cha ooh la la...etc)

Queen of Spades that ain't been played
Though she knows she's well endowed
??? witch with a nervous twitch
And the nature of a clown
Back street joy ride
Certified bonafide
Answer to a sailors dream
???????????????
To make things what they seem

Oh you dreamer sweet redeemer
Take me for what you will
Yeah come on honey
What's the name of your thrill
We're gonna shake it
Come on baby let's find that hill
We're bound to make it
Moons high and I'm dry
Come on
Come on
