1. *You Make It So Hard (To Say No)

(Boz Scaggs)

I have had my eyes on you
Oh since the day
I learned to laugh at myself
Caught you laughing too

Then you went your way
Oh and I went mine
Its strange that in another place
That joke should hit me in my face

But you oh you make it so hard baby
To say no no no oh
You yes you baby
Make it so hard to say no no no no

All that glitters is not gold
Just like good jokes get old
That spark that makes you think of me
Don't make things like they used to be

You might say that I have changed
Its just that things are rearranged
And as I once looked out for you
Now its your turn to see me through

Cos you oh baby you make it so hard girl
To say hey no no no no
You oh baby you make it sooo hard
To say no no no no

You know I tried to get you out of my mind
But now I'm to the point I find
I just can't leave and not have kissed you
You know I could never resist you

Cos you oh you make it so hard
To say no no no no
You oh you're making it so hard baby
To say no oh to say no no no no
You are making it so hard


2. *Slow Dancer

(G. Daly / Boz Scaggs)

Hmmm hmmm mmmm

I have never loved a lady
Never touched no silken knee
Macon baby you drove me crazy
You were so easy to me

Hmmm hmmm mmmm

Lay me down in Georgia pine cones
Whisper to me through the trees
You're the one I always dream of
You're the only one I see

Whoah slow dancer sweet romancer
Shine your light on me
Slow dancer holds the answer
Only you can set me free

Never see your face in sunlight
Moonlight sends you straight to me
You never even got my name right
You were so easy to me

Whoah slow dancer sweet romancer
Shine your light on me
Slow dancer give me the answer
Only you can set me free
Baby baby baby sweet romancer
Shine your light on me


3. *Angel Lady (Come Just In Time)

(J. Bristol / J. McDonough / Boz Scaggs)

(Angel Lady come just in time
Chased that devil from my broken mind
Got back my soul from the lost and found
Kicked that trip that had me chained and bound
Angel Lady come just in time)

She came on like a summer breeze
And oh she talked ooh she teased me
Right up to her door and then
Then she popped it to me
Won't you come on in
I wanna hold you I wanna squeeze you
I will get down on my knees
And do anything you want me to
And just then I turned to my devil and said
I say you.. you and I are through

Angel Lady come just in time
Chased that devil from my broken mind
Got back my soul from the lost and found
Kicked that trip that had me chained and bound

The devil said we've travelled too long
And anyone who's ever seen has seen me
You know you can't trust no woman
And I think this ones teasing
But boy you've got it coming
But I'll keep her around
Cos you're pulling me down
And when she looks at me that special way
I forget about yesterday
And then the devil grabbed ahold of me
And he let me know that it ain't gonna be that easy

Angel Lady come just in time
Chased that devil from my broken mind
Got back my soul from the lost and found
Kicked that trip that had me chained and bound

And then she cocked her head to the side
A question rose up in her eyes
And it said why are we both here all alone
Can I help you can I carry that stone
Her skin was so fine as I touched
And from just an inch away
I couldn't help but say
That I knew what she saw
And I knew what she knew
And I turned to my devil and swore we were through

Angel Lady come just in time
Chased that devil from my broken mind
Got back my soul from the lost and found
Kicked that trip that had me chained and bound


4. *There Is Someone Else

(Boz Scaggs)

I might be late tonight
But I guess everything is alright
I know it aint like me
But there's something you see
That I just can't put right
Maybe a dream last night
That I can't understand

For all I know I love you so
Somethings got a hold of me
And I've got to make you see
That things aren't the same

Could be that yesterday
As I was walking on my way
Some face out of my past
Just happened to cast a shadow on me
Oh that made me see
That I've been all wrong

You know I could have sworn
It was someone I loved before
Someone I used to linger on
Something I just couldn't put my finger on
Just a face and a memory
That stood between you and me

Ooooh Ooooh Ooooh baby
Oooh child I've got to tell you now
That there is someone else in my life

Got to make you know that
Ooooh Ooooh Ooooh baby baby baby
Oh child oh little girl
There is someone else in my life
And its breaking my heart

Its mighty late tonight
But I feel I gotta get it right
This face I've been dreaming of
Well it is the face of a long lost love
And as I look into your eyes
Suddenly I realize
That that someone else is you
Oh I've been such a fool baby
Baby baby baby baby

Oh child got to make you know
That you're the someone else in my life
And I've been such a lonely man
But now I've found my baby
Oh Oh and I wanna make you know girl
That I've finally found someone else
That someone is you
Ohhhhhh


5. *Hercules

(A. Toussaint)

All you fear
Is fear itself
Check out your own back yard
'Fore you check out someone else

Railroad tracks
In my neighborhood
Ain't no trains around
That boy just ain't no good

Wanna know
Whats going down
And the pimp on the corner
Looks like the sharpest cat in town

Jungle rule
Can't be no fool
Might get caught
By the hook or the crook
Hot time for cool

Look out Jake what you say
What you carrying brother
I hope you're clean
Cause the man is mean
Gonna dump on another brother

But we all know the answer
Will come out in time
I might even carry
Some of your load along with mine

Thank you ma'am mister please
But it must be Hercules
Must be Hercules

Like a bird
On the wing
I just wanna be free enough
To do my thing

I can feel the pressure
On every side
If you not gonna help don't hurt
Just pass me by
Ooooh ooooh
Ooooh
Aaaaaah

Hercules

Must be must be Hercules

Alright
Jungle rules
Can't be no fool
The devil is on the loose
No cool.. no cool

Got your feet
In the sand
Got to be down with the cats around
And you still gotta face that man

Oh
Talk about me if you please
Must be Hercules

Must be Hercules

Pitching rocks
Catching stones
Newton how can I survive
Whats going on

Beg steal borrow
Somehow I've gotta make it till tomorrow
Just like Hercules

Thank you ma'am mister please
Must be Hercules


6. *Pain Of Love

(J. Bristol)

When the pain of love gets rough
Will you run away saying that you had enough
When the pain of love gets strong
Will you feel that you just can't carry on
Will you sigh will you cry will you die
Will you hang on and say "we can make it baby"
Will you give up and swear to God you've had enough
Tell me will you try to fake it baby

When the pain of love gets rough
Will you run away saying that you had enough
When the pain of love gets strong
Will you feel that you just can't carry on

When the road gets a little bit rocky
Will you turn your back girl and go the other way
When the road gets a little bit muddy
Will you feel you can try it on another day
Tell me is it fair when you care
To even dare take a heart and break it
Is it wise to apologize
Hang on strong and try to take it baby

When the pain of love gets rough
Will you run away saying that you had enough
When the pain of love gets strong
Will you feel that you just can't carry on

Will you sigh will you cry will you die
Will you hang on and say "we can make it baby"
Will you give up and swear to God you've had enough
Tell me will you try to fake it baby

When the pain of love gets rough
Will you run away saying that you had enough
Tell me now
When the pain of love gets strong
Will you feel that you just can't carry on

When the pain is so strong
Tell me that you got enough
When the pain is so strong
Baby tell me you can hold on


7. *Sail On White Moon

(J. Bristol)

Your world was not the kind
I ever thought I'd find
Myself to be a part of

Oh but here I stand
In the middle of a foreign land
A stranger with love in his heart mmmm

For love has no eyes
It comes in no disguise
Its free for those who want to share

And I've chosen you to be mine
So girl lets not waste no time
Lets not worry about what they say
Lets take care of what is ours today

Sail on white moon
Across the dark and starry sky mmmm
Sail on white moon
Our love won't die

But girl you must realize
There'll be a difference in our lives
We're gonna be rejected
Whoah but thats to be expected

Sail on white moon
Across the dark and starry sky
Mmmmm sail on white moon
Across the dark and starry sky
La la la la la la lala la la la la la la lala
mmmm la la la lala la la la la la la lala


8. *Let It Happen

(J. Bristol / Boz Scaggs)

Now I'm the kind of guy
Don't let a good thing pass me by
I've added two and two
Come up with me and you
Why not lets give it a try

And I believe that you're the kind of girl
Who could brighten up this poor boys world
So stop your hesitating
Aint no need to waiting
If you love me don't wonder why

Oh let it oh let it happen
You and me
Let it oh let it
Just let it happen
Let it happen to you
Let it happen to me
Come on now come on baby

Well I know you're daddy's girl
And I respect what your mama said
But I'm sure they'd understand
Cause thats how mama got a man
And that you can't deny

And I believe that its time you realized
And opened up your pretty eyes
And see that when the real thing comes along
You'd better get it before its gone
Just don't let it pass you by

Let it whoah let it
Let it happen
To you and me baby
Let it oh oh let it happen
Let it happen to you
Darling let it happen to me
Come on come on baby

Let it oh let it just let it happen
One more time baby
Let it please let it happen


9. *I Got Your Number

(J. Bristol / G. Reeves)

I got your number
I know you're gonna be there when I call
I got your number
I'd say you aint got no choice at all
No no no no no

I took your head from lonely
Chased your pain away
I gave you more than loving
In my special way
I shocked you out of boredom
Made you a faithful wife
Gave you an education
On the facts of life
In you there's come a change
I'll be damned I got you trained
And thats why I.. I.. what I know

I got your number
I know you're gonna be there when I call
I got your number mama
No you aint got no choice at all
No no no no no no

Why listen to your girlfriends
When they can plainly see
That the boy that they call lover
Aint half the man as me
Hey I don't have to prove nothing
Long as you're satisfied
Cos if you need more loving
There's plenty more inside yeah
Just tell them I'm glad that he's my man
Something they'll never understand
That is why I....I...

I got your number
I know you're gonna be there when I call
I got your number baby
So you aint got no choice at all
I got your number girl
I know you're gonna be there when I call
I got your number mama
No you aint got no choice at all
No no baby oh baby baby baby

My hat goes off to you
For lovin me the way you do
Even though I know pretty baby that I..I..

I got your number
I know you're gonna be there when I call
I got your number mama
Said you aint got no choice at all
I got your number baby
No you aint got no choice at all
I got your number mama
Oh you know you better be there when I call

I got your number girl oh oh no


10. *Take It For Granted

(Boz Scaggs)

Take it for granted
You're making a mistake
Take it for what it is
But take it for Gods sake

Take it from me
Lonely as can be
I'd love to
But I never dared to
If only I could make you see

Once a man stood by a wall
And watched his love across the beach
And though her loveliness could warm his heart
Her lips he could not reach

And nothing would he do
Nothing would he say
He just keeps it all inside himself
And saves it for another day

Then he heard a song
Sweetly over the wall
Singing its better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all

Take it for granted
Oh don't make that mistake
Take it for what it is
But take it for Gods sake mmm

Take it from me
Lonely as can be
I'd love to but I never dared to
But if only I.. I could make you see

Once a girl gazed out her window
At the moon above the sea
And as the breeze touched her face
The thought of him wouldn't let her be

Will he pass by
Or will this feeling just pass away
How am I to try and understand
What is this price I have to pay

Shall I turn my back to my pillow
Let the moon fall to the sea
And keep it all and not sleep at all
Or maybe I'll just dream

Take it for granted
You're making a mistake
Take it for what it is
But take it for Gods sake oh

Take it from me
Lonely as can be
I'd love to but I never dared to
But if only I could make you see
