Round Here – George Michael

My daddy got here on the gravy train
I guess my mama had a real bad start to the game
They went walking and she took his name
Round here

There was dancing in the afternoons those days
Waiting tables, chasing girls with the money he made
It was 1957, and love felt the same, love felt the same

Frightened little girl, she makes a break
Into the arms of… something better
Round here

I hear my mama call in Kingsbury Park
Just me and David and a football that glowed in the dark
Waiting patiently to make my mark
Round here

And I remember my first day at school
And I remember trouble, and thinking I was so cool
I remember it all, like yesterday

Don’t you

Every time I try to leave this place
Something inside says, “You can do better”
Round here

So come with me, let me show you where I’ve lived
I want to put my hands in this earth again
Music fell like rain to the streets
The Specials and The Jam, to The Beat
Even though I think I’ve seen everything there is to see of this world
I gotta be thankful that this crowded space
Is the place of my birth

When all that I wanted, was to be someone.

Two little Hitlers in an old church hall
Some cheesy covers and those neighbours that banged on the walls
Andy says it’s time to show them all
Round here

Please sir, we two have other plans
Please sir you would not understand,
What’s going on
Is magical, can’t you see
That some of us do more than dream

Every time I try to leave this place
Something inside says, “Keep on keeping, on and on….”
Around here

So come with me, let me show you where I’ve lived
I want to put my hands in this earth again
Music fell like rain to the streets
The Specials and The Jam, ABC
Even though I think I’ve seen everything there is to see of this world
I gotta be thankful that this crowded space
Is the place of my birth

My birth,
In this town,
Yes I guess I got to be someone

To be somebody
In the Beautiful city

This place I call home
These streets of London
It’s everything I know (everything and everybody)
On the streets of London
I want to thank you

My daddy got here on the gravy train.

Brother Can You Spare A Dime – George Michael

Once I Built A Railroad, Made It Run
Made it race against time
Once i built a rairoad, now it’s done
Brother can you spare a dime?
Once i built a tower to the sun
Brick and rivet and lime
Once i built a tower, now it’s done
Brother can you spare a dime?

Once in khaki suits
Gee, we looked swell
Full of that yankee doodle de dum
Half a million boots went slogging through hell
I was the kid with the drum
Say don’t you remember, they called me al
It was al all the time
Say don’t you remember, i’m your pal!
Buddy can you spare a dime?

Crazyman Dance – George Michael

Well I’m still here
But I’m so scared
Got myself in trouble, so much trouble
I know I’ve got to make it
But I just can’t take New York
My middle name is fear
I have a vacant stare
And it’s been so long since my body’s been warm
I know I’ve got to make it
But I just can’t take New York
I came here
All dreams and wide eyes in the big, big city
No family, no money
And I don’t even know what’s hit me

He hasn’t seen a doctor
Since he got here in the spring
Went to the Medicentre
But they wouldn’t let him in
Without a green card
Life can be so hard
Take pity on a man without a home of his own
How could he ever have known?

Every street and every corner
Watch them drowning
Watch them do the Crazyman Dance
Men and Women to the slaughter
We just stand and watch them
Do the Crazyman Dance

It’s been one whole year
And it’s just not fair
For all the pushing and shoving
I’ve still got nothing
I’m never gonna make it
And I’m stuck here in New York
So people don’t come near
Unless you’ve a dollar to spare
‘Cause you know what they say
About madmen on the subways of New York
Believe it
Yesterday’s newspapers
I wrap them around my body
Outside these skyscrapers
I wait for the night to hit me
And boy, does it hit me

Every street and every corner
Watch them drowning
Watch them do the Crazyman Dance
For a nickel or a quarter
For your pleasure
Watch them do the Crazyman Dance

READ  Freeek! - George Michael

I’m coming to London
I’m coming to Paris
I’m coming to make you good clean people embarrassed
Why don’t you look at my face
Why don’t you look in my eyes
You’d rather look at your feet
You’d rather look at the skies

Oh, you’d look anywhere
But at a man whose pure existence
Says ‘I ain’t got time’
And I don’t care
I don’t care
You just don’t care
Care

Cowboys & Angels – George Michael

When your heart’s in someone else’s hands
Monkey see and monkey do
Their wish is your command
You’re not to blame
Everyone’s the same

All you do is love and love is all you do
I should know by now the way I fought for you
You’re not to blame
Everyone’s the same

I know you think that you’re safe mister
Harmless deception
That keeps love at bay
It’s the ones who resist that we most want to kiss
Wouldn’t you say?
Cowboys and angels
They all have the time for you
Why should I imagine that I’d be a find for you
Why should I imagine
That I’d have something to say

But that scar on your face
That beautiful face of yours
In your heart there’s a trace of someone before

When your hearts in someone else’s plans
Things you say and things you do
They don’t understand
It’s such a shame
Always ends the same

You can call it love but I don’t think it’s true
You should know by now
I’m not the boy for you
You’re not to blame
Always ends the same

I know you think that you’re safe sister
Harmless affection
That keeps things this way
It’s the ones who persist for the sake of a kiss
Who will pay
Cowboys and angels
They all take a shine to you
Why should I imagine that I was designed for you
Why should I believe
That you would stay

But that scar on your face
That beautiful face of yours
Don’t you think that I know
They’ve hurt you before

Take this man to your bed
Maybe his hands will help you forget
Please be stronger than your past
The future may still give you a chance
