I was a sailor first, I sailed the sea
Then I got a job in a factory
Played Butlin's Camp with my friend Rory
It was good for him, it was great for me

Liverpool I left you, said 'goodbye' to Madryn Street
I always followed my heart and I never missed a beat
Destiny was calling, I just couldn't stick around
Liverpool I left you, but I never let you down

Went to Hamburg, the red lights were on
With George and Paul and my friend John
We rocked all night, we all looked tough
We didn't have much, but we had enough

Liverpool I left you, said 'goodbye' to Madryn Street
I always followed my heart and I never missed a beat
Destiny was calling, I just couldn't stick around
Liverpool I left you, but I never let you down

In the U.S.A. when we played Shea
We were Number One and it was fun
When I look back, it sure was cool
For those four boys from Liverpool

Liverpool I left you, said 'goodbye' to Admiral Grove
I always followed my heart, so I took it on the road
Destiny was calling, I just couldn't stick around
Liverpool I left you, but I never let you down

La la la la la la... Liverpool

When I'm walking down the streets and I feel it start to rain
I don't run for cover, I look up again and it's blue
I just have to think about you!

When the road is getting rocky, all the seas getting rock
No matter what the trouble, it isn't very tough to get through
Through
I just have to think about you!

Like the rain or sunshine breaking through the stormy weather
Every time my heart beats I remember that you're mine
Then I'm fine

When the world feels fast and my life feels slow
When I'm feeling way down, suddenly I know what to do
I just have to think about you!

I'm taking!

Like the rain or sunshine breaking through the stormy weather
Breaking through
Every time my heart beats I remember that you're mine
Then I'm fine, so fine

I believe in magic and I do believe in love
So without going to cast a spell there's a little trick that I do
I just have to think about you!

Yeah it's true
Shoo
I just have to think about you!
Think about you!

So I do
Do
I'm always going to think about
You!

I think about you!
Always going to think about, think about
Always going to think about
Always going to think about you!
Always going to think about, think about
Always going to think about, think about you!

Feel like I'm going under
My heart it beats like thunder
For love, for love, for love

Why can't it be a saying?
This is a price we're paying
For love, for love, for love

You have to have a heart to have it broken
To hear the words of love softly spoken
It seems so easy
If love is comin' in you better know it
Come and let it out ya gotta show it
I'll stand in line, one more time
For love

Well there may be many times
We know the sun will always shine
I am yours and you are mine
We do it all, for love

Everybody's got to know
That love is not like in the picture show
When you know, you really know
So do it all for love

There are good and bad days
You'll still love me always
For love, for love, for love

In this world we live in
We can always be forgiven
With love, with love, with love

As long as quiet is an emotion
Sometimes tears are really like the ocean
So, embrace them
No matter how you try, you can't forget it
We can only make it better, if you let it
We'll stand in line, together, one more time
For love

Well there may be many times (for love)
We know the sun will always shine (in love)
I am yours and you are mine
We do it all, for love

Everybody's got to know (that love)
That love is not like in the picture show (you know)
When you know, you really know
So do it all for love

I'll stand in line, forever, every time
For love
(For love)
(In love)
I am yours and you are mine
Do it all for love
Everybody's got to know
(That love) is not like in the picture show
(In love) when you know, you really know
So do it all for love
For love, for love

What am I gonna be
What am I gonna say
What am I gonna do
Now that she's gone away
Now that she's gone away

Where am I gonna go?
What am I gonna say?
Where am I gonna turn
Now that she's gone away
Now that she's gone away

And here comes midnight
What didn't I do right
Didn't I love with everything I am?

I can still hear her
But I'm no where near her
One thing I'll never understand.

How'm I gonna sleep
How do I face the day
How do I carry on?
Now that she's gone away
Now that she's gone away

Why did it take so long?
Why it's hard to say
Why did I...
Now that she's gone away
Now that she's gone away

It's half past midnight
But I still don't feel right
Right now I'm ready to move on

It's time to move on, now that she's gone

I know what I'm gonna be
I know what I'm gonna say
I know what I'm gonna do
Now that she's gone away
Now that she's gone away
Now that she's gone away

She's gone
She's gone away
She's gone
Now that she's gone away
She's gone
She's gone away
She's gone!

I hope you find what you're looking for
you could chose young it's an open door.

I know you will believe me
when I say it won't come easy
oh no, oh no it don't come easy.

You think you've got a problem
I know you've got a problem, oh yeah
oh yeah.

I know you will believe me

Everybody has a dream that they hold on to
but what can they do to make it come true
everybody has a whole lot of life to live
but you've got to sit back
oh, you gotta relax!

You've got to love every breath you breathe
look at the sky and believe, oh yeah
smile a little more as life goes by
with love in your eyes
just give it a try
give it a try.

If you're tired of looking over your shoulder
it's time, to take a look at yourself
don't be left on the shelf
in the end you will surrender and then you'll be fine
like everyone else
you'll be back in yourself.

You've got to love every breath you breathe
look at the sky and believe, oh yeah
smile a little more as life goes by
with love in your eyes
just give it a try
give it a try.

Everybody makes mistakes sometimes
it's all right, it's all right
but you can have a better life my friend, here in the back
one day at a time, and your life will shine.

You've got to love every breath you breathe
look at the sky and believe, oh yeah
smile a little more as life goes by
with love in your eyes
just give it a try
give it a try.
Why kiss it good bye? (bye, bye)
Just give it a try!

Tuff love
(Starkey-Hudson-Burr-Dudas)

Ringo Starr - bicí, zpěv, perkuse
Sean Hurley - baskytara
Gary Burr - elektrická kytara, doprovodný zpěv
Mark Hudson - piano, doprovodný zpěv

A little bit of love a little bit of love
is not enough but it's not to tuff
to give a little bit of love a little bit of happiness
to give a little smile if only for a while.

Sitting by the river watching my life go by
I can be bigger but it's up for me to try
now it's time to make up my mind.

A little bit of peace, a little bit of peace
is not enough but it's not to tuff
to give a little bit of hope settle for nothing less
in your heart that's where you gotta start.

It's really just a moment everything you're going through
if you ever need me I'll be there for you
now it's time to make up your mind.

Tuff love.

The love in your heart wasn't put there to stay
now love is enough 'til you give it away
so why don't we start giving today.

A little more light that's what love will bring
a little more joy a little less suffering
a little more hope will get you through
a little more truth inside of you
a little more love a little bit of peace
is not enough but it's not too tuff
to give a little love a little bit of happiness
a little bit of hope settle for nothing less
and now it's time to make up your mind
and now it's time to make up your mind
and now it's time to make up your mind
and now it's time to make up your mind.

Harry's song

Ringo Starr - bicí, zpěv
Mark Hudson - baskytara, akustická kytara, doprovodný zpěv
Gary Burr - elektrická kytara, kytarové sólo, doprovodný zpěv, pískání
Steve Dudas - elektrická kytara, kytarové sólo

Like the songs of long ago
never fast and not too slow
and now that you're telling me
somethings should last forever.

In other days and different times
when you and Moon would always rhyme
a boy and a girl romancing
dancing together.

Music played this way
all I need is my imagination
take me far away
where I can be with everyone who loves me.

Harry was a friend most true
he sang songs like this for me and you
whenever I'm here without you
pressed in together.

Music played this way
all I need is my imagination
take me far away
where I can be with everyone who loves me.

Can we get back the past
the way of knowing
how do we make it last
just keep on growing.

Tomorrow is a yesterday
'cause nothing ever goes away
the love that is living inside you
will guide you forever.

Music played this way
all I need is my imagination
take me far away
where I can be with everyone who loves me
let it be with everyone who loves me.

Pasodobles

Ringo Starr - bicí, zpěv, perkuse
Mark Hudson - baskytara, doprovodný zpěv
Gary Burr - akustická kytara, doprovodný zpěv
Steve Dudas - španělka, kytarové sólo

When I was walking down the street in Spain
I met a girl who would not say her name
but all was not lost to circumstance
later on she taught me how to dance
her pasodobles
I love where I am today
strangers in perfect motion
down by the Spanish ocean
el pasodobles.

Lights were shining low – the music loud
we danced so close and slow – we drew a cry
we were two together like candle's bind
we became one and that's how I learnt
her pasodobles
I love where I am today
strangers in perfect motion
down by the Spanish ocean
el pasodobles.

In the drift she said we did
but of course you know we didn't
she had dress she said
that I tried too far
but she always kept them hidden.

At the Bay of Biscay I had no regrets
and as I sailed away I could not forget
the pasodobles
I love where we are today
strangers in perfect motion
down by the Spanish ocean
the pasodobles.

Forever takes so long
You turn around it's gone
Everybody's here
But never for too long
The door of willingness will one day open
For everyone

Time will always heal
What the broken-hearted feel
The poet's say it's so
But I'm not sure it's real
I only know the answer is inside me
And everyone

Love is here
Everywhere it's calling if you hear
Love is opening your heart, it will appear
Love is
Love is here

The quiet helps me stand
A spirit guides my hand
And that is how I know
That there's a bigger plan
This world is not for me and you alone
It's for everyone

Love is here
Everywhere it's calling if you hear
Love is opening your heart, it will appear
Love is
Love is here

A war will still go on
But love will come on strong
You have to look inside
To see where you've come from
I only wish for nothing less than everything
Love is
Love is here

Love is love

Are you ready to cross over, are you ready to let go?
To face the final curtain
In the land of I Don't Know
Jesus was a wise man
And everyone's a Saint
Are you ready to cross over, are you ready?

You can read the good and bad book
And bring the bad book home
But is it fact or fiction
There's just one way to know
Buddha was dancing, underneath the fig oak tree
He was ready to cross over, he was ready

So why hold on, hold on
It's good that you believe, but it's better if you don't
So hold on, hold on
Someone's there to catch you, when you're ready to let go

I was sitting by the Ganji
Looking for another way
But all roads lead to heaven
No matter what, they say
Preacher was a good man
Why was he so blue?
He was ready to cross over, he was ready

So why hold on, hold on
It's good that you believe, but it's better if you know
So hold on, hold on
Someone's there to catch you, when you're ready to let go

Play me to heaven

Are you ready to cross over, are you ready to let go?
To face the final curtain
In the land of I Don't Know
Every one can get there
Cuz we don't have a soul
Are you ready to cross over, are you ready?

So why hold on, hold on
It's good that you believe, but it's better if you know
So hold on, hold on
Someone's there to catch you when you're ready to let go
Someone's there to catch you when you're ready to let go
Someone's there to catch you when you're ready to let go

That's the real thing there, isn't it?
