    Don’t Worry Be Happy

    Bobby McFerrin

    Here’s a little song I wrote
    You might want to sing it note for note
    Don’t worry, be happy
    In every life we have some trouble
    But when you worry you make it double
    Don’t worry, be happy
    Don’t worry, be happy now

    don’t worry
    (Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) be happy
    (Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don’t worry, be happy
    (Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don’t worry
    (Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) be happy
    (Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don’t worry, be happy

    Ain’t got no place to lay your head
    Somebody came and took your bed
    Don’t worry, be happy
    The landlord say your rent is late
    He may have to litigate
    Don’t worry, be happy

    Oh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh don’t worry, be happy
    Here I give you my phone number, when you worry, call me, I make you happy, don’t worry, be happy)
    Don’t worry, be happy
    Ain’t got no cash, ain’t got no style
    Ain’t got no gal to make you smile
    Don’t worry, be happy
    ‘Cause when you worry your face will frown
    And that will bring everybody down
    So don’t worry, be happy

    Don’t worry, be happy now
    (Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don’t worry
    (Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) be happy
    (Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don’t worry, be happy
    (Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don’t worry
    (Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) be happy
    (Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don’t worry, be happy

    Now there, is this song I wrote
    I hope you learned note for note
    Like good little children, don’t worry, be happy
    Now listen to what I said, in your life expect some trouble
    When you worry you make it double
    But don’t worry, be happy, be happy now

    don’t worry
    (Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) be happy
    (Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don’t worry, be happy

    don’t worry
    (Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) be happy
    (Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don’t worry, be happy

    don’t worry, don’t worry
    (Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don’t worry, don’t do it, be happy
    (Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) put a smile in your face
    (Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don’t bring everybody down like this

    don’t worry
    (Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) it will soon pass, whatever it is
    (Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don’t worry, be happy
    (Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) I’m not worried, I’m happy

    One in a Million You

    Larry Graham

    Love had played its games on me so long
    I started to believe I’d never find anyone
    Doubt had tried to convince me to give in
    Said, “You can’t win”

    But one day the sun came a shinin’ through
    The rain had stopped and the skies were blue
    And oh, what a revelation to see
    Someone was saying “I love you” to me

    A one in a million
    Chance of a lifetime
    And life showed compassion
    And sent to me a stroke of love called “You”
    A one in a million you

    was a lonely man with empty arms to fill
    Then I found a piece of happiness to call my own
    And life is worth livin’ again
    For to love you, to me, is to live

    A one in a million
    Chance of a lifetime
    And life showed compassion
    And sent to me a stroke of love called “You”
    A one in a million you

    A one in a million
    Chance of a lifetime
    And life showed compassion
    And sent to me a stroke of love called “You”
    One in a million you

    A one in a million you

    Donny Hathaway and Roberta Flack

    Where is the love? (Where is the love?)
    Where is the love? (Where is the love?)
    Where is the love? (Where is the love?)
    Where is the love?
    Where is the love?
    You said, you’d give to me
    As soon as you were free
    Will it ever be?
    Where is the love?
    You told me that you didn’t love him
    And you were gonna say, goodbye
    But if you really didn’t mean it
    Why did you have to lie?
    Where is the love?
    You said, was mine, all mine
    Till the end of time
    Was it just a lie?
    Where is the love?
    If you had, had a sudden change of heart
    I wish that you would tell me so
    Don’t leave me hangin’ on the promises
    You’ve got to let me know
    Oh, how I wish, I never met you
    I guess, it must have been my fate
    To fall in love with someone else’s love
    All I can do is wait
    That’s all I can do, yeah yeah

    Just My Imagination (Running Away with Me)

    The Temptations

    Ooh

    Each day through my window I watch her as she passes by
    I say to myself, “You’re such a lucky guy”
    To have a girl like her is truly a dream come true
    Out of all the fellows in the world, she belongs to me

    But it was just my imagination
    Runnin’ away with me
    It was just my imagination
    Runnin’ away with me

    Ooh (soon)
    Soon we’ll be married and raise a family (oh yeah)
    A cozy little home out in the country with two children, maybe three
    I tell you I can visualize it all
    This couldn’t be a dream, far too real it all seems

    But it was just my imagination, once again
    Runnin’ away with me
    Tell you, it was just my imagination
    Runnin’ away with me

    Every night on my knees I pray
    Dear Lord, hear my plea
    Don’t ever let another take her love from me
    Or I would surely die, hmm
    (Her love is) Heavenly, when her arms enfold me
    I hear a tender rhapsody
    But in reality, she doesn’t even know me

    Just my imagination…

    Once again
    Runnin’ away with me, oh
    Tell you it was just my imagination
    Runnin’ away with me

    I’ve never met her but I can’t forget her
    (Just my imagination) Ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    Runnin’ away with me, ooh
    Just my imagination
    Runnin’ away with me

    The Closer I Get to You

    Roberta Flack

    The closer I get to you
    The more you make me see
    By giving me all you got
    Your love has captured me

    Over and over again
    I tried to tell myself that we
    Could never be more than friends
    And all the while inside I knew it was real
    The way you make me feel

    Lying here next to you
    Time just seems to fly
    Needing you more and more
    Lets give love a try (oh, oh, oh)

    Sweeter than sweeter love grows
    And heaven’s there for those
    Who fool the tricks of time
    With the hearts of love they find true love
    In a special way

    The closer I get to you
    The more you make me see
    By giving me all you got
    Your love has captured me

    Over and over again
    I try to tell myself that we
    Could never be more than friends
    And all the while inside I knew it was real
    The way you make me feel

    The closer I get to you
    The more you make me see
    By giving you all I got
    Your love has captured me

    The closer I get to you
    The feeling comes over me (me too)
    Pulling closer, sweet as the gravity

    to you

    Regrets

    James Brown

    You know, when a person does another person wrong
    And there’s probably a lot of ways to say “I’m sorry”, but…
    And after that, hey, all you have to live with is your memories
    But don’t let it get you down, ’cause it happens to the best of us

    Oh, I wish that I could take back all the things I’ve done to hurt you
    I didn’t mean to be so cruel and yet, I know I’ve been selfish
    And at time, a jealous fool
    And every thoughtless thing that I’ve done keeps coming back to haunt me
    Because you took each one to your little somber heart
    And I realize, that it’s my fault but we’ve grown worlds apart

    Oh, I have regrets (I have regrets) regrets
    For my mistaken thinking only of myself
    Now that all I have left are these mean regrets
    (I have regrets) regrets
    For the things I did, somehow I just can’t forgive
    I guess I’ll always have to live with these mean regrets

    If I could right the wrong that I’ve done
    Maybe I could stop believing
    There’s so much I’m guilty of, oh yeah
    Yet it’s too late to say I’m sorry
    ‘Cause being sorry just ain’t enough
    ‘Cause with each angry word that I’ve said
    Your love for me was dying, and each word left a lasting scar
    And now I feel so helpless, wishing I could change the way things are

    I have regrets (I have regrets)
    I have regrets for my mistaken thinking only of myself
    And now that all I have left are these mean regrets (I have regrets) regrets
    For the things I did, somehow you just can’t forgive
    And I guess I’ll always have to live with these regrets

    Oh baby, oh baby
    My, my, my, my, my, thee
    Oh Lord, oh Lord
    Help me please

    If I could right the wrong that I’ve done
    Maybe I could stop believing
    There’s so much I’m guilty of, help me
    Yet it’s too late to say I’m sorry
    ‘Cause being sorry just ain’t enough

    I have regrets (I have regrets)
    Oh, regrets for my mistaken thinking only, so selfish, of myself
    And now that all I have left are these regrets
    (I have regrets) ahh, yeah baby
    I guess I just can’t forgive
    And I’ll always have to live with these mean regrets (I have regrets) yea-ah, ahh

    Oh baby, don’t let me to suffer so long
    Come on over to my place (I have regrets)
    Come on over to my place
    Or let me know where you are
    I can please, if I can get your phone number
    And when I call…
    Then when she comes on, and says (I have regrets)
    “You’re having a message, you’re leaving with me”
    But I know they don’t understand, you and I
    And oh, I don’t want the world to know about my regrets (I have regrets)
    Ah, no no, no no, no
    Oh, can I, can I walk home?
    Can I walk home, can I walk on home? (I have regrets)
    Ahh, no, now now now

    I’m a thousand miles away, and all I need is your tender voice to lead me on
    ‘Cause I lost someone, yeah (I have regrets)
    Yeah yeah, I lost someone, yeah
    I lost someone
    I don’t want no stranger to come in my home, and enjoy (I have regrets)
    Enjoy what we’ve built, baby
    Aw! Aw!

    James Brown –Regrets
