Joe's Garage Music & Lyrics by Frank Zappa We take you now to a garage long ago ... Just a band of Idiots tinkering away ... It wasn't very large There was just enough room to cram the drums In the corner over by the Dodge It was a '54 With a mashed up door And a cheesy little amp With a sign on the front said "Fender Champ" And a second-hand guitar It was a Stratocaster with a whammy bar We could jam in Joe's Garage His mama was screamin' His dad was mad We was playin' the same old song In the afternoon 'n sometimes we would Play it all night long It was all we knew, 'n easy too So we couldn't get it wrong All we did was bend the string like . . . Hey! Down in Joe's Garage We didn't have no dope or LSD But a couple a quarts a beer Would fix it so the intonation Would not offend yer ear And the same old chords goin' over 'n over Became a symphony We could play it again 'n again 'n again 'Cause it sounded good to me One more time! We could jam in Joe's Garage His mama was screamin', "Turn it down!" We was playin' the same old song In the afternoon 'n sometimes we would Play it all night long It was all we knew, 'n easy too So we wouldn't get it wrong Even if you played it on a saxophone We thought we was pretty good We talked about keepin' the band together 'n we figured that we should 'Cause about this time we was gettin' the eye From the girls in the neighborhood They'd all come over 'n dance around like . . . So we picked out a stupid name Had some cards printed up for a couple a bucks 'n we was on our way to fame Got matching suits 'n Beatle boots 'n a sign on the back of the car 'n we was ready to work in a go-go bar People seemed to like our song They got up 'n danced 'n made a lotta noise An' it wasn't 'fore very long A guy from a company we can't name Said we oughta take his pen 'n sign on the line for a real good time But he didn't tell us when These "good times" would be somethin' That was really happenin' So the band broke up An' it looks like We will never play again... Guess you only get one chance in life To play a song that goes like... ~~~ Oh Well Music & Lyrics by Peter Green I can't help about the shape I'm in I can't sing, I ain't pretty and my legs are thin But don't ask me what I think of you I might not give the answer that you want me to When I talked to God, he said he'd understand He said, "Stick by my side and I'll be your guiding hand But don't ask me what I think of you I might not give the answer that you want me to

Long Cool Woman Music & Lyrics by by Allan Clarke, Roger Cook, and Roger Greenaway Saturday night I went downtown Working for my FBI Sitting in a nest of bad men Whiskey bottles by my side Poolin' & boozin on the west side Full of people who are doing wrong Just about to call up the DA man When I heard this woman singing a song A pair of forty-fives made me open my eyes Temperature started to rise She was a long cool woman in a black dress Just a 5'9" beautiful, tall Just one look I was a bad mess 'Cause that long cool woman had it all I saw her walk up to the table Well, a tall walking big black cat My Charlie said, "I hope that you're able, boy 'Cause I'm telling you she knows where it's at" Suddenly we hear the sirens Everywhere they started to run Jumping under doors and tables Well, I heard somebody shooting a gun Well, the DA was pumping on my left hand She had a hold of my right Well, I told her, "Don't get scared You're gonna be spared I'm gotta be forgiven if I wanna stay a livin' With a long cool woman in a black dress Just a 5'9" beautiful, tall Just one look I was a bad mess 'Cause that long cool woman had it all Had it all, had it all, had it all ....

I Saw the Light Music & Lyrics by Todd Rundgren It was late last night I was feeling something wasn't right There was not another soul in sight Only you, only you So we walked along Though I knew that there was something wrong And a feeling hit me, oh so strong About you Then you gazed up at me And the answer was plain to see When I saw the light In your eyes, in your eyes So we had our fling Though I just never would suspect a thing Till that little bell began to ring In my head, in my head So I tried to run Though I knew it wouldn't help me none 'Cause I couldn't ever love no one Or so I said And my feelings for you Were just something I never knew Till I saw the light In your eyes, in your eyes But I love you best It's not something that I say in jest 'Cause you're different, girl, from all the rest In my eyes And I ran out before But I won't do it anymore Can't you see the light in my eyes In my eyes In my eyes In my eyes

God Only Knows Music & Lyrics by Brian Wilson & Tony Asher I may not always love you But long as there are stars above you You never need to doubt it I'll make you so sure about it God only knows what I'd be without you If you should ever leave me Though life would still go on believe me The world could show nothing to me So what good would living do me God only knows what I'd be without you

It's Over Music & Lyrics by Boz Scaggs & David Paich Best of friends, never part Best of fools in love forever From the bottom of his heart Why pretend, this is the end You'll have to find out for yourself Go on ask somebody else Why can't you just get it through your head? It's over, it's over now Yes, you heard me clearly now I said It's over, it's over now I'm not really over you you might say I can't take it, I can't take it Lord, I swear I just can't take it no more Go away, go away Far away, so far away It's too late to turn back now Doesn't matter anyhow You were right, I'm to blame Can't go on the same old way Can't keep up the same old game Why can't you just get it through your head? It's over, it's over now Yes, you heard me clearly now I said It's over, it's over now I'm not really over you, you might say I can't take it, I can't take it Lord, I swear I just can't take it no more Why can't you just get it through your head? It's over, it's over now Yes, you heard me clearly now I said It's over, it's over now

Without You Music & Lyrics by Pete Ham and Tom Evans Well I can't forget this evening Or your face as you were leaving But I guess that's just the way the story goes You always smile, but in your eyes Your sorrow shows Yes, it shows Well I can't forget tomorrow When I think of all my sorrow How I had you there but then I let you go And now it's only fair that I should let you know What you should know I can't live If living is without you I can't live I can't give anymore I can't live If living is without you I can't give I can't give anymore

Universal Soldier Music & Lyrics by Buffy Sainte-Marie He's five foot-two, and he's six feet-four, He fights with missiles and with spears. He's all of thirty-one, and he's only seventeen, He's been a soldier for a thousand years. He'a a Catholic, a Hindu, an Atheist, a Jain, A Buddhist and a Baptist and a Jew. He knows he shouldn't kill, And he knows he always will, Kill you for me my friend or me for you. He's fighting for China, He's fighting for France, He's fighting for the USA, And he's fighting for the Russians, And he's fighting for Japan, And he thinks we'll put an end to war this way. And he's fighting for his country, He's fighting for his god, He's fighting for the good of all. He's the one who must decide, Who's to live and who's to die, And he's never seen the writing on the wall. But without him, How would Hitler have condemned them at Dachau? Without him Caesar would have stood alone, He's the one who gives his body As a weapon of the war, And without him all this killing can't go on. He's the Universal Soldier and he really is to blame, His orders come from far away no more, They come from you and me, And oh my brothers can't you see, This is not the way to put the end to war.

Get Together Music & Lyrics by Chet Powers Love is but a song we sing Fear's the way we die You can make the mountains sing Or make the angels cry Though the bird is on the wing You may not know why Come on people now Smile on your brother Everybody get together Try to love one another Right now Some may come and some may go We shall surely pass When the ones who left us here Return for us at last We are but a moment's sunlight Fading in the grass Come on people now Smile on your brother Everybody get together Try to love one another Right now Come on people now Smile on your brother Everybody get together Try to love one another Right now If you hear the song I sing You will understand You hold the key to love and fear All in your trembling hand Just one key unlocks them both It's there at your command Come on people now Smile on your brother Everybody get together Try to love one another Right now Come on people now Smile on your brother Everybody get together Try to love one another Right now Come on people now Smile on your brother Everybody get together Try to love one another Right now Right now Right now

about

This record tells a story — a true story — using some of the best songs in the history of song as the narrative. The story is both specific and universal.

Here’s a cheat for you:

Boy meets girl — Boy gets girl (Yay!) — Boy loses girl (Damn!) — Boy has no choice, but to get over it (not right away, of course, but eventually) — and finally, Boy learns something important.
