Life Is What It Is – Chicago

Lirik lagu: Life Is What It Is

Why do we have to go and face the same routine
And the traffic jams and crowded street’s a real
Neurotic scene
I don’t know, why do we take it each day, yeah
Why does my girl tell me she’s got to
Have her way
Out all night, come home to fight
What am I to say
I don’t know, why do we take it each day
Life is what it is
Who wants to try not to believe
That’s the way it is
Oh, oh
I don’t know why what you feel inside
Days go on
Love is something that you just can’t hide
If it’s wrong
Then you’ll want to know, you don’t know why
I sing a song
And it helps me yet I’ll get by
At times
Lost in time sometimes your mind unwinds
Sun does shine
But no pleasure from your beauty’s mine
Like champagne wine
A bitter taste that’s so refined
Life it’s fine
You always pay for what’s behind
Why do I have to go and face the same routine
And the traffic jams and crowded street’s a real
Neurotic scene
I don’t know, why do we take it each day, yeah
Life is what it is
Who wants to try not to believe
That’s the way it is

Aloha Mama – Chicago

Lirik lagu: Aloha Mama

Aloha mama don’t go away
Aloha mama I want you to stay
Aloha mama won’t you treat me right
I need you tender woman won’t you hold me tight
Surfridin’ sister I wanna taste your love
Le’s make it in the garden beneath the stars above
Aloha mama don’t go away
Aloha mama I want you to stay
Aloha mama have you got the cure
My heart’s all broken and I feel unsure
Surfridin’ sister I got to fly away
I’ll be back in September that’s the price I pay
Aloha mama don’t go away
Aloha mama I want you to stay
Can’t you feel the trade winds blowin’
There’s a look in your eyes you’re goin’
Don’t leave me now I’m a hurtin’
If you’d look in my eyes you’d see hunger arise
Can’t you feel all these years I’ve been cryin’ these years
Aloha mama don’t go away
Aloha mama I want you to stay
Aloha mama don’t make me cry
Aloha mama you know I’ll die
Aloha mama don’t go away
Aloha mama I want you to stay

Skinny Boy – Chicago

Lirik lagu: Skinny Boy

Ow
Yeah, yeah
When I was a young skinny boy
My momma said to me
The world out there is hot and dirty
Mean as it wants to be
I know there’s gonna be times when you’re down and out
So listen now kid
Listen now son
I’ll tell you what it’s all about
You gotta try to keep your head above the water
That’s what my momma told me
You gotta try to keep a step ahead of time
And even though you do some things you shouldn’t ought to
Shouldn’t ought to
If you love your brothers love will come back to you
Love’ll come back to you
Love’ll come back to you
Love’ll come back to you
Live my life in so many ways
To find out who I am
Time’s approaching
I really can say
Truly I understand
Got more livin’ to do for myself
So run along now
Play along later
Stay up by the shelf
Sing it girls
Gotta try to keep your head above the water
Yes you do yes I do
You gotta try to keep a step ahead of time
Even though you do some things you shouldn’t ought to
If you love your sisters love will come back to you
Love’ll come back to you
Love’ll come back to you
All the world is turnin’ to stone
Slowly it will die
But that is something I never will see
I don’t know why
Tryin’ to take the world the best I can
Might be now
Probably be later
Stand up like a man
hey, hey
Gotta try to keep your head above the water
Yes you do yes you do yes you do
Gotta try to keep a step ahead of time
Even though you do some things you shouldn’t ought to
Love your brothers and sisters, love’ll come back to you
Love’ll come back to you
Love’ll come back to you

Hard Habit to Break – Chicago

I guess I thought you’d be here forever
Another illusion I chose to create
You don’t know what ya got until it’s gone
And I found out a little too late
I was acting as if you were lucky to have me
Doin’ you a favor I hardly knew you were there
But then you were gone and it was all wrong
Had no idea how much I cared

[CHORUS:]
Now being without you
Takes a lot of getting used to
Should learn to live with it
But I don’t want to
Living without you
It’s all a big mistake
Instead of getting easier
It’s the hardest thing to take
I’m addicted to ya babe
You’re a hard habit to break
You found somebody else you had every reason
You know I can’t blame you for runnin’ to him
Two people together but living alone
I was spreading my love too thin
After all of these years
I’m still tryin’ to shake it
Doin’ much better they say that I just takes time
But deep in the night it’s an endless flight
I can’t get ya out of my mind

[CHORUS]

[CHORUS 2:]
Being without you
Takes a lot of getting used to
Should learn to live with it
I don’t want to
Being without
Is all a big mistake
Instead of getting any easier
It’s the hardest thing to take
I’m addicted to you
You’re a hard habit to break
