1. SOUNDCHEQUE OVERTURE (instrumental) ("Very frankly, we are lovers of music in Jersey City. We certainly have gone out of our way to bring music concerts and dances to the teenage people in order to keep them entertained. However, we feel, based upon the experiences throughout the country, that this rockin roll rhythm has been the seed of trouble and we wanna keep trouble out of Jersey City, Don.") 1906

FUN WITH MUSIC (Sidney Miller & Tom Adair) It's time for fun with music Fun with music Making music is fun Whether it's a song of home or some foreign land Music is the language we all understand We're all for one with music Fun with music And before we are done Just wait and see, you'll all agree Fun with music is fun Fun for everyone. 1955 mickey mousepad club

4. SLEEP IT OFF (Moore) You found me trying to forget What happened to our home You tried your best to comfort The feelings of being all alone And as another night falls You look at me and wait for tomorrow We'll sleep it off again Another way to end all our sorrow. You memorized a country song You wish that you could sing it on TV You tried your best to hesitate As I began to think how it would be And as another show comes on You hear ideas that you could borrow We'll sleep on it again Another song to sing away our sorrow. Now all our friends are dead And me and you don't care about a thing We're trying our best to survive Each time the phone will ring And with the final breath you take I wave g'bye, preparing for the morrow I'll sleep it off tonight Another way to end all my sorrow I'll sleep it off tonight Another way to end all my grief I'll sleep it off tonight Another way to end all my sorrow. 1976

6. THE MESSAGE (Fletcher/Robinson/Chase/Glover) Broken glass everywhere People pissing on the stairs, you know they just don't care I can't take the smell, I can't take the noise Got no money to move out, I guess I got no choice Rats in the front room, roaches in the back Junkie's in the alley with a baseball bat I tried to get away, but I couldn't get far Cause the man with the tow-truck repossessed my car Don't push me, cause I'm close to the edge I'm trying not to lose my head It's like a jungle sometimes It makes me wonder How I keep from going under. Standing on the front stoop, hangin' out the window Watching all the cars go by, roaring as the breezes blow Crazy lady, livin' in a bag Eating out of garbage piles, used to be a fag-hag Search and test a tango, skips the light fandango To search a prince to see the last of senses Down at the peepshow, watching all the creeps So she can tell the stories to the girls back home She went to the city and got so so so ditty She had to get a pimp, she couldn't make it on her own Don't push me, cause I'm close to the edge I'm trying not to lose my head It's like a jungle sometimes It makes me wonder How I keep from goin' under It's like a jungle sometimes It makes me wonder How I keep from goin' under. My brother's doing fast on my mother's TV Says he watches too much, it's just not healthy All My Children in the daytime, Dallas at night Can't even see the game or the Sugar Ray fight Bill collectors they ring my phone And scare my wife when I'm not home Got a bum education, double-digit inflation Can't take the train to the job, there's a strike at the station Me on king kong standin' on my back Can't stop to turn around, broke my sacroiliac Midrange, migraine, cancered membrane Sometimes I think I'm going insane, I swear I might hijack a plane! Don't push me, cause I'm close to the edge I'm trying not to lose my head It's like a jungle sometimes It makes me wonder How I keep from going under It's like a jungle sometimes It makes me wonder How I keep from goin' under. My son said, Daddy I don't wanna go to school Cause the teacher's a jerk, he must think I'm a fool And all the kids smoke reefer, I think it'd be cheaper If I just got a job, learned to be a street sweeper I dance to the beat, shuffle my feet Wear a shirt and tie and run with the creeps Cause it's all about money, ain't a damn thing funny You got to have a con in this land of milk and honey They push that girl in front of a train Took her to a doctor, sewed her arm on again Stabbed that man, right in his heart Gave him a transplant for a brand new start I can't walk through the park, cause it's crazy after dark Keep my hand on my gun, cause they got me on the run I feel like an outlaw, broke my last glass jaw Hear them say you want some more, livin' on a seesaw Don't push me, cause I'm close to the edge I'm trying not to lose my head It's like a jungle sometimes It makes me wonder How I keep from going under It's like a jungle sometimes It makes me wonder How I keep from goin' under. A child was born, with no state of mind Blind to the ways of mankind God is smiling on you but he's frowning too Cause only God knows what you go through You grow up in the ghetto, living second-rate And your eyes will sing a song of deep hate The places you play and where you stay Looks like one great big alley way You'll admire all the number book takers Thugs, pimps, the pushers and the big money makers Driving big cars, spending twenties and tens And you wanna grow up to be just like them Smugglers, scrambles, burglars, gamblers Pickpockets, peddlers and even pan-handlers You say I'm cool, I'm no fool But then you wind up dropping out of high school Now you're unemployed, all null 'n void Walking around like you're Pretty Boy Floyd Turned stickup kid, look what you done did Got sent up for a eight year bid Now your man is took and you're a may tag Spend the next two years as an undercover fag Being used and abused, and served like hell Till one day you was find hung dead in a cell It was plain to see that your life was lost You was cold and your body swung back and forth But now your eyes sing the sad sad song Of how you lived so fast and died so young Don't push me, cause I'm close to the edge I'm trying not to lose my head It's like a jungle sometimes It makes me wonder How I keep from going under It's like a jungle sometimes It makes me wonder How I keep from goin' under. 1982
7. HERITAGE (Gallagher & Lyle) as by McGuinness Flint I wish I had a song to sing To take your tears away And see the smile come creeping Back into your eye If I had a dream to bring To see you through your day And keep you while you're sleeping I'd put it by your side If we could only steal tomorrow And put it in your life I'd be satisfied. So close your eyes, my darling And never fear the night Be sure I'll be beside you Till the morning light And everyday anew must stay God knows we need the sight But still I'll try to guide you Be it wrong or right If we could only steal tomorrow And put it in your life I'd be satisfied But all I have are thoughts to borrow I'd place them in your hand And hope you'll understand. 1971
8. DREAM DARLIN' DREAM (Gallagher & Lyle) as by MF Dream darlin' dream, rest your eyes In the morning when you rise You will be revived Run darlin' run, thru the threads Of the day you took to bed It's already dead. Dream darlin' dream Dream darlin' dream And we can start all over Again bein' friends, having fun It's the only way to run Run darlin' run. Dream darlin' dream Dream darlin' dream And we can start all over Again, just pretend yesterday Was a thousand miles away Let it fade away Dream darlin' dream Dream darlin' dream And we can start all over again. 1971
9. INTERNATIONAL (Gallagher & Lyle) as by McGF Hey, Jesus hey it's me Now I've gone international And become very rational As you decree Hey, Jesus it's our day Now I can bring them home to you Though I may loose out on a few Who care to stray We'll make them see international We'll make them be international Like you and me Hey, Jesus it's OK Now we have common interests And we can help along the rest To be like we We'll make them see internationl We'll make them be international Like you and me Hey, Jesus you'll agree They're going downhill very fast And it don't look as though they'll last Till judgement day We'll make them see internationl We'll make them be international Like you and me. 1971

14. PLEASE MR. GRAVEDIGGER (David Bowie) There's a little churchyard just along the way It used to be Lambeth's finest array Of tombstones, epitaphs Wreaths, flowers, all that jazz Till the war came along And someone dropped a bomb on the lot. And in this little yard, there's a little old man With a little shovel in his little bitty hand He seems to spend all his days Puffing fags and digging graves He hates the reverend vicar And he lives all alone in his home (Ah-choo! Excuse me) Please Mr. Gravedigger, don't feel ashamed As you dig little holes for the dead and the maimed Please Mr. Gravedigger, I couldn't care If you found a golden locket full of some girl's hair And you put it in your pocket (God, it's pouring down) Her mother doesn't know about your sentimental joy She thinks it's down below with the rest of her toys And Ma wouldn't understand So I won't tell So keep your golden locket All safely hid away in your pocket Yes, Mr. GD, you see me every day Sta (...ah choo!)

16. SINCE YOU'VE GONE (Stuart Scharf) Since you've gone I wait for the city's noisy dawn At the end of each endless night The morning sounds of life that still goes on Since you've gone Since you've gone I wonder whose bed my dreams lie on But I know that they're never far From where you are They've slept near you too long Since you've gone Since you've gone. "She said they said I said She said our love was dead and It can't go on!...but..." Since you've gone The least little moment lingers on And it seems like a year or two Each day is filled a lifetime since you've gone Since you've gone Since you've gone. Since you've gone I wait for the city's noisy dawn At the end of each endless night The morning sounds of life that still goes on Since you've gone Since you've gone Since you've gone "She said they said I said She said our love was dead and It can't go on! Oh no she said She said they said I said They said you said my head was bread But it can't go on She said she said On the Revolver album I said it can't go on..." 1968
