1. *Lowdown

(Boz Scaggs / David Paich)

Baby's into runnin round
Hangin with the crowd
Putting your business in the street talking out loud
Saying you bought her this and that
And how much you done spent
I swear she must believe its all heaven sent
Hey boy you better bring the chick around
To the sad sad truth.. the dirty lowdown

(Oooh oooh.. I wonder wonder wonder wonder who)
Taught her how to talk like that
(Oooh oooh.. I wonder wonder wonder wonder who)
Gave her that big idea

Nothin you can't handle nothin you ain't got
Put your money on the table and drive it off the lot
Turn on that old lovelight and turn a maybe to yes
Same old schoolboy game got you into this mess
Hey son you better get on back to town
Face the sad old truth.. the dirty lowdown

(Oooh oooh I wonder wonder wonder wonder who)
Put those ideas in your head
(Oooh oooh I wonder wonder wonder wonder who)

Yeah

Come on back down to earth son
Dig the low low low low lowdown

You ain't got to be so bad got to be so cold
This dog eat dog existence sure is gettin old
Got to have a Jones for this Jones for that
This runnin with the Jones's boy
Just ain't where it's at
Your gonna come back around
To the sad sad truth.. the dirty lowdown

(Oooh oooh I wonder wonder wonder wonder who)
Got you thinking like that boy
(Oooh oooh I wonder wonder wonder wonder who)

I wonder wonder wonder wonder who
And I wonder wonder wonder wonder who

Oh look out for that lowdown
That dirty dirty dirty dirty lowdown
I wonder wonder wonder wonder who
Ooooh hooo
I wonder wonder who got you thinking like that....


2. *Still Falling For You

(Boz Scaggs)

Ever since the day I saw your face
I've been making plans
Seemed kinda absurd when
There wasn't much for you
So I put a little word in just for you
Started making strategies
To get you for myself

I love your eyes your crazy sighs
Were tantalizing me
Push some pride aside mmmm too bad
I could run and hide but I'd rather be had
Mostly it's just lonely
Only being lonely by myself

And I'm still falling for you
The thrill is still brand new
No matter what I do
It all begins and ends with you

He's hearing voices
Seems the choices really are but few
Hey.. he makes a break get out of there
Me act like a fool stand and stare
See the jokers actin' like there's nothin' happenin'
He just ate his cocktail napkin

Summer breezes through the trees
As on and on it goes
They began to reminisce
He walks her home
And then a kiss the rest is known
And so we leave our hero
No longer batting zero
He's in the majors now

And I'm still falling for you
The thrill is still brand new
No matter what I do
It all begins and ends with you.. baby

Cos I'm still falling for you
And the thrill is still brand new
No matter what I do
It all begins and ends with you

And I'm still falling for you
The thrill is still brand new
No matter what I do
It all begins and ends with you.. oh

Cos I'm still falling for you
The thrill is still brand new
No matter what I do
It all begins and ends with you..


3. *Miss Sun

(D. Paich)

Been thinkin' 'bout you all night
Guess you got me in your spell
Well
But I think that I'll be alright
Even if I don't get well

Hey Miss Sun
What could I say
I tried to hold you
But the moon got in the way
It won't be long before the morning
Has you back in my arms

I can still remember
What you told me with your eyes..eyes
One kiss
Now it's down to this
Guess it's time you realise

Hey Miss Sun
What could I say
I tried to hold you
But the moon got in the way
It won't be long before the morning
Has you back in my arms
Has you back in my arms

Hey Miss Sun
What could I say
I tried to hold you
But the moon got in the way
It won't be long before the morning
Has you back in my arms
In my arms...oooh hooo

Hey Miss Sun
What could I say
I tried to hold you
But the moon got in my way
It won't be long before the morning
Has you back in my arms

(One kiss is what I need
One kiss did this to me
Won't be long until the morning
Won't be long until the morning
Has you back in my arms
One kiss I realised
One kiss I can see it in your eyes
Oh
It won't be long
Until the morning has you back in my arms)


4. *Lido Shuffle

(Boz Scaggs / David Paich)

Lido missed the boat that day
He left the shack
But that was all he missed
And he ain't coming back

At a tombstone bar
In a duke-joint car
He made a stop
Just long enough to grab a handle off the top

Next stop Chi town
Lido put the money down let em roll
He said one more job ought to get it
One last shot 'fore we quit it
One for the road

Lido.. woah oh oh oh
He's for the money
He's for the show
Lido's waitin for the go
Lido.. Woah oh oh oh
He said one more job ought to get it
One last shot 'fore we quit it
One more for the road

Lido will be runnin'
Havin' great big fun
Until he got the note
Sayin' tow the line or blow it
And that was all he wrote

He'll be makin' like a bee line
Headin' for the border line
Goin' for broke
Sayin' one more hit ought to do it
This joint aint nothin' to it
One more for the road

Lido.. whoah oh oh oh
He's for the money
He's for the show
Lido's waitin' for the go

Lido.. woah oh oh oh oh oh oh
One more job ought to get it
One last shot then we quit it
One more for the road

Lido.. woah oh oh oh
He's for the money
He's for the show
Lido's a waitin' for the go
Lido.. woah oh oh oh


5. *We're All Alone

(Boz Scaggs)

Outside the rain begins
And it may never end
So cry no more
On the shore a dream
Will take us out to sea
For ever more
For ever more

Close your eyes ami
And you can be with me
'Neath the waves
Through the caves of hours
Long forgotten now
We´re all alone.. we´re all alone

Close the window
Calm the light
And it will be all right
No need to bother now
Let it out let it all begin
Learn how to pretend

Once a story´s told
It can´t help but grow old
Roses do lovers too so cast
Your seasons to the wind
And hold me dear
Oh hold me dear

Close the window calm the light
And it will be all right
No need to bother now
Let it out
Let it all begin
All´s forgotten now
We´re all alone
All alone

Close the window calm the light
And it will be all right
No need to bother now
Let it out let it all begin
Throw it to the wind my love
Hold me dear

All's forgotten now my love
We're all alone......


6. *Breakdown Dead Ahead

(B. Scaggs / D. Foster)

I call ya
You ain't in
What's this cold reaction
Where've you been?
Ooh baby
Layin' it on the line
If this is last call
And you say that's all you can take
It's fine

I'm sorry but
It don't make sense
You'd be a fool if you just run out on first offense
Ooh baby play it smart
Before you go south with your big mouth
Better check your heart

Danger there's a breakdown dead ahead
Maybe you're in way above your head
I may burn.. might upset you
But you know I'd never let you down

I told ya
No more lyin'
No more tears a falling
Stop your cryin'
Ooh baby I'm your man
Before you go back to your side track
Baby understand

Danger there's a breakdown dead ahead
And just maybe you're in way above your head
I may burn.. might upset you
But you know I'd never let you down
No no no
No no no no
No no no no no no no

Danger there's a breakdown dead ahead
And just maybe you're in way above your head
Life may burn.. might upset you
But you know I'd never let you down
No no no

Danger there's a breakdown dead ahead
Then just maybe you're in way above your head
I may burn.. might upset you
But you know I'd never let you down down down down
No no no oh oh oh


7. *Look What You've Done To Me

(Boz Scaggs / D.Foster)

Hope they never end this song
This could take us all night long
I looked at the moon and I felt blue
Then I looked again and I saw you

Eyes like fire in the night
Bridges burning with their light
Now I'll have to spend the whole night through
And honey yes I'll have to spend it all on you

Love look what you've done to me
Never thought I'd fall again so easily
Oh love you wouldn't lie to me
Leading me to feel this way

They might fade and turn to stone
Let's get crazy all alone
Hold me closer than you'd ever dare
Close your eyes and I'll be there

And after all is said and done
After all you are the one
Take me up your stairs and through the door
Take me where we don't care anymore

Love look what you've done to me
I never thought I'd fall again so easily
Oh love you wouldn't lie to me would you
Leading me to feel this way

Love look what you've done to me
Never thought I'd fall again so easily
Oh love you wouldn't lie to me
Leading me to feel this way


8. *JoJo

(B. Scaggs / D. Foster / D. Lasley)

Look out behind you Jo Jo's got his gun
He wouldn't mean to you know he likes his fun
Jo Jo dig those spinning lights
Way out games and dizzy heights below him
Jo Jo dig those Broadway nights
Flashy lines you know him
(You know him)

He got you covered you know it right out front
Hey fifty dollars he'll get you all you want
Jo Jo dig those spinning lights
Way out games and dizzy heights below him
And its all below him
Jo Jo dig those Broadway nights
Flashy lines you know him

Ever so rarely that man in a millions born
Gentle and soft but he'd just as soon loft you
For looking the wrong way as not
(Jo Jo) Jo Jo

His baby stays high got to keep her sweet
He keep her just right keeps her on the street
Jo Jo dig those spinning lights
(Way out games and dizzy heights)
Oh below him
Jo Jo dig those Broadway nights
Oh you know him

(Jo you are so low
Ooo Ooo Jo how low can you go)

Jo Jo dig those spinning lights
Way out games and dizzy heights below him
Jojo dig those Broadway nights
Oh you know him
Yeah yeah
Jo Jo.. how low can you go


9. *What Can I Say

(Boz Scaggs / David Paich)

(What can I say... What can I do)

Three a.m. its me again and wouldn't you know
Things would have to end this way
I did my best the perfect guest knew when to go
Perfect you knew when to stay

Come on tell me that you´re lonely dear
I've been feeling down some too
After all this time now aint it clear
I've been waiting just for you

(What can I say)
Oh to make you know baby
(What can I do)
Oooh to show you that I care
(What can I say)
Mmmmm got to have your number baby
(What can I do)
Do...oooooooo

Can't you see the people just stop and stare
Don't it make you wonder why
I just happened to be standing there
Can't you see it in my eyes

(What can I say)
Ooooh you got me acting like a fool girl
(What can I do)
Oooh stop making like a little school girl
(What can I say)
Could be your lucky day baby
(What can I do)
Ooooh talk to me
Ooooh talk to me girl

(What can I say)
Oh to make you know baby
(What can I do)
Oh to show you that I care
(What can I say)
Oooh I´m all down on my knees
(What can I do)
Please... please... please

What can I say
What can I say
Oooh what can I do
What can I do


10. *You Can Have Me Any Time

(B. Scaggs / D. Foster)

Here we are
In a room full of strangers
And an open door

Here we are
Away from all dangers
But that open door
Is calling out again
Acting like a friend
Who wants to know
If you might come away
I wonder what you'll say
You wander out again

On wings of the night
Once again you'll take flight
And I don't hear your voice any more
Tonight's dream will end
But I'll stay long after then
And you can have me any time

Here we are
Alone in the shadows
Of our lonely room

Here we are
We all have those very lonely rooms
Like our faithless child
Frightened of the wild
He runs and hides
To keep from being still
We run around until
We lose ourselves again

On wings of the night
Once again you'll take flight
And I don't hear your voice any more
Tonight's dream will end
But I'll stay long after then
And you can have me any time

Tonight's dream will end
But I'll stay long after then
And you can have me any time
