Senor Blues lyrics

In Lyrics, Senõr Blues on November 27, 2013 at 10:00 am

Senor Blues (Horace Silver)

Senor Blues is what they call him
Way down Mexically way
Senorita’s falling for him
With the hope that he will stay
By the time that they love him
Senor Blues done gone away.

Well, he’s tall and good looking
And he always know just what to say
Yes, he’s tall and good looking
And he knows just what to say
By the time that they love him
Senor Blues done gone away.

1/
I don’t know why, don’t know why, don’t know why
He’s a wonderin’, wonderin’ guy
With no one place to lay his head by

2/
I’m so tired and lonely and blue
‘Cause he one man I love won’t be true
Got the blues and it’s all cuz of you.

Song for My Father lyrics

In Lyrics, Song for my Father on October 21, 2011 at 8:35 am

Horace Silver

If there was ever a man
Who was generous, gracious and good
That was my dad
The man
A human being so true
He could live like a king
‘Cause he knew
The real pleasure in life

To be devoted to
And always stand by me
So I’d be unafraid and free

If there was ever a man
Who was generous, gracious and good
That was my dad
The man
A human being so true
He could live like a king
‘Cause he knew
The real pleasure in life

To be devoted to
And always stand by me
So I’d be unafraid and free

If there was ever a man
Who was generous, gracious and good
That was my dad
The man, The man

Birdland lyrics (Manhattan Transfer)

In Birdland, Lyrics on June 30, 2011 at 10:31 pm

Zawinul and Jon Hendricks

By Manhattan Transfer

Five thousand light years from Birdland
But I’m still preachin’ the rhythm
Long gone up-tight years from Birdland
And I’m still teachin’ it with ’em

Years from the land of the bird,
And I’m still feeling the spirit
Five thousand light years from Birdland
But I know people can hear it

bird named it, bird made it, bird heard it, then played it
Well-stated! Birdland, it happened down in Birdland

In the middle of that hub
I remember one jazz club
Where we went to pat feet
Down on fifty-second street

Everybody heard that word
That they named it after Bird

Where the rhythm swooped and swirled
The jazz corner of the world

And the cats they gigged in there
Were beyond compare

Birdland – I’m singing Birdland

Birdland

Birdland – Ol’ swingin’ Birdland

Hey, man, the music really turns you on!
Y’ turn me on,
Really y’ turn me aroun’
‘N turn me on

Down them stairs, lose them cares ? where?
Down in Birdland
Total swing, bop was king ? there
Down in Birdland
Bird would cook, Max would look ? where?
Down in Birdland
Miles came through, ‘Trane came too ? there
Down in Birdland
Baise blew, Blakey too ? where?
Down in Birdland
Cannonball played that hall ? there
Down in Birdland
Yeah —-

There may never be nothin’ such as that
No More – No More
Down in Birdland, that’s where it was at
I know ? I know
Back in them days bop was ridin’ high
Hello! ‘n goodbye!

How well those cats remember
Their first Birdland gig
To play in Birdland is an honor we still dig
Yeah — that club was like –
In another world, sure enough –
Yeah, baby
All o’ the cats had the cookin’ on
People just sat an’ they was steady loookin on
Then Bird – he came ‘n spread the word –
Birdland

Yes, indeed he did
Yes, indeed he did
Yes, indeed he did

Yes he did, Parker played at Birdland

Yes, he really did
Yes, indeed he really did
Yes, he really did

Told the truth way down in Birdland
Yes, indeed, he did, Charlie Parker played in Birdland

Yes indeed, he really did
Charlie Parker played in Birdland

bird named it, bird made it, bird heard it, then played it
Well-stated! Birdland, it happened down in Birdland

Everybody dug that beat
Everybody stomped their feet
Everybody digs be-bop
An’ they’ll never stop

Down them stairs, lose them cares ? where?
Down in Birdland
Total swing, bop was king ? there
Down in Birdland
Bird would cook, Max would look ? where?
Down in Birdland
Miles came through, ‘Trane came too ? there
Down in Birdland
Baise blew, Blakey too ? where?
Down in Birdland
Cannonball played that hall ? there
Down in Birdland

Down them stairs, lose them cares ? where?
Down in Birdland
Total swing, bop was king ? there
Down in Birdland
Bird would cook, Max would look ? where?
Down in Birdland
Miles came through, ‘Trane came too ? there
Down in Birdland
Baise blew, Blakey too ? where?
Down in Birdland
Cannonball played that hall ? there
Down in Birdland

Come in pairs down them stairs, lose y’ cares
Them that dares – gits it!

Pay the gate, don’t be late
It’s a date! Whattay’ know
If y’ dig, then you’ll dig it’s a groove
Quite a groove, ’cause y’ t’ move
Come in twos, pay your dues,

What can you lose?

Just your blues!

So lose them!

The band swingin’ one and all and what a ball
Yeah!

Music is good, music is better than good, pretty good
Very nice –
Really very good, things are bein’ like they should
very good – very good – very good

All y’ gotta do it lend an ear
An’ listen to it
Then y’ dig a little sooner than soon
You’ll be diggin’ everything – diggin all the music

What a ball!

How y’ gonna figure out
A way to bring it all about amid a
Lot of other music on the set and on the scene
Know what I mean?
How y’ gonna separate the music from the scene
‘Gonna have t’ keep the memory clean
Y’ gonna hear a lotta sound – a lotta soun’

This Masquerade Lyrics (Leon Russell)

In Lyrics, This Masquerade on September 21, 2009 at 8:15 pm

Are we really happy with this lonely game we play
Looking for words to say
Searching but not finding understanding anyway
We’re lost in this masquerade

Both afraid to say we’re just too far away
From being close together from the start
We tried to talk it over but the words got in the way
We’re lost inside this lonely game we play

Thoughts of leaving disappear
every time I see your eyes
No matter how hard I try
To understand the reason why
we carry on this way
We’re lost in a masquerade

We could just start over
but it’s oh so hard to do
When you’re lost in a masquerade

Recado Bossa Nova lyrics…

In Lyrics, Recado Bossa Nova on July 1, 2009 at 10:04 pm

Djalma Ferreira

No Strings have perls in a velvet glove
The thing I long for is the gift of love
No ring of gold but a dream to unfold
When all the stars have flown and we’re alone

The gift of love is a precious thing
A touch of magic on a day in spring
The golden dream every dreamer pursures
remember darling never refuse the gift of love

For love can be a melody that lingers
Or slip like April wine right through your fingers,
So kiss me sweet till our secret star
Illuminates the way to Shangrila
Whatever fate may be fall all I know
is the gift of love is the greatest gift of all.
