Supermans Ghost.(Written by Don)

(Chorus)
***I don't want to be like old George Reeves
Stuck in a Superman role.
I've got a long way to go in my career
And some day my fame will make it clear
That I had to be a Superman ***

He came from another place deep in his mind
As far as the planets in space.
As galaxy's mysteries start to unwind
Some changes are bound to take place.

Though gravity constantly weighs on my travels
My mission is close to adrift
Though I can be strong when my power unravels
I still come to you for a lift.
(Chorus)
I know I can fly when my plane hits the sky
I believe I've got nothing to lose.
But when I'm alone with the bed and the phone
I get the terminal metropolis blues

I flew to the coast where Superman's Ghost
Lay shot on the bedroom floor
He said 'Watch out for TV it crucified me,
but it can't crucify me no more.'
(Chorus)
I'm red white and blue, I've got justice to do
I'm the man of your fantasy dreams
But I'm an alien man from an alien land
Who's alive on your orthicon screens.
I once ruled the world and when flags were unfurled

I performed for you live not on tape.
But the public is cruel when played for a fool
As you see by the blood on my cape.'
(Chorus)
Well I never was real or stronger than steel.
I'm a figment of Freudian need.
And the video screen is a psychotic scene
And it's all done with mirrors and green

My agent just called, the talks have been stalled
I soon will be pulled from the air.
But the image persists in the video mists
That a Superman still will be there!'
(Chorus)

Birthday song

(Words & Music by Don McLean)
If I could say the things I feel, it wouldn't be the same
Some things are not spoken of, some things have no name
And though the words come hard to me, I'll say them just for you
For this is something rare for me this feeling is so new

You see I love the way you love me
Love the way you smile at me,
I love the way we live this life we're in

Long ago I heard the song that lovers sing to me
And through the days with each new phrase I hummed that melody
And all along I loved the song but I never learned it through
But since the day you came along, I've saved it just for you

You see I love the way you love me
Love the way you smile at me,
I love the way we live this life we're in

I don't believe in magic but I do believe in you
And when you say you believe in me
There's so much magic I can do

Now you see me now you don't watch me dive below
Deep down in your love lake where the sweet fish come and go
And I might sink and I might drown but death don't mean a thing
'Cause life continues right or wrong when I play this birthday song
I learned from you, and you can't even sing

Masters of war

(Songwriters: Bob Dylan)


Come you masters of war
You that build the big guns
You that build the death planes
You that build all the bombs
You that hide behind walls
You that hide behind desks
I just don't want you to know
I can see through your masks

You that never done nothin'
But build to destroy
You play with my world
Like it's your little toy
You put a gun in my hand
And you hide from my eyes
And you turn and run farther
When the fast bullets fly

Like Judas of old
You lie and deceive
A world war can be won
You want me to believe
But I see through your eyes
And I see through your brain
Like I see through the water
That runs down my drain

You've thrown the worst fear
That can ever be hurled
Fear to bring children
Into the world
For threatening my baby
Unborn and unnamed
You ain't worth the blood
That runs in your veins

And I hope that you die
And your death'll come soon
I will follow your casket
In the pale afternoon
And I'll watch while you're lowered
Down to your deathbed
And I'll stand o'er your grave
'Til I'm sure that you're dead

Don mclean唱起他自己偶像Buddy Holly的歌,特別起勁,可以想得到Buddy Holly對他的影响有多深遠
Fools Paradise


You took me up to heaven, when you took me in your arms.
I was dazzled by your kisses, blinded by your charms.
I was lost in a fool's paradise.
Good and lost in a fool's paradise.

When you told me that you loved me, I gave my heart to you.
And I wondered if there could be any truth in love so new.
I was lost in a fools paradise.
Good and lost in a fool's paradise.


The whole world was my kingdom
and your love the gem in my crown.
Then I saw you glance at a new romance
and my love came tumbling down.

Well you treat me kinda coolish and may never let me know
That you think I'm being fooling because I love you so
I'll still get lost in a fool's paradise.
Lost with you in a fool's paradise.

Bronco Bills Lament (Written by Don)


***I coulda been most anything I put my mind to be,
But a cowboy's life was the only life for me.
It's a strong man's occupation ridin' herd and livin' free,
But strong men often fail
Where shrewd men can prevail,
I'm an old man now with nothin' left to say,
But oh god how I worked my youth away.
***

Well you may not recognise my face, I used to be a star,
A cowboy hero known both near and far.
I perched upon a silver mount and sang with my guitar,
But the studio of course,
owned my saddle and my horse,
But that six-gun on the wall belongs to me,
Oh god I can't live a memory.

You know I'd like to put my finger on that trigger once again,
And point that gun at all the prideful men.
All the voyeurs and the lawyers who can pull a fountain pen,
And put you where they choose,
With the language that they use,
And enslave you till you work your youth away,
Oh god how I worked my youth away.

Whoopee ty yioh
Whoopee ty yi ya,
One man's work is another man's play
Oh god how I worked my youth away.

You see I always liked the notion of a cowboy fighting crime,
This photograph was taken in my prime,
I could beat those desperados but there's no sense fightin' time,
But the singin' was a ball
Cause I'm not musical at all,
I moved my lips to someone else's voice.

What Will The World Be Like (1987)
(Written by Don)

What will the world be like when you're on your own?
What will the world be like when you're almost grown?
What will the world be like when you pack your things,
when you leave your home?
What in the world will tomorrow bring?

Will you be safe in the sweet arms of love?
Will you be true to yourself and the things you believe?

What will the world be like when you need a friend?
What will the world be like when you're on the mend?
What will the world be like when you go astray,
and you slip and fall?
How in the world will you find your way?

Will you find peace and forgiveness and joy?
Will you have children yourself, and be worried like me?

What will the world be like when you're on your own?
What will the world be like when you're almost grown?
What will the world be like when you pack your things,
when you leave your home?
What in the world will tomorrow bring?

What will the world be like?

Everyday

Everyday, it's a gettin' closer,
Goin' faster than a roller coaster,
Love like yours will surely come my way, (hey, hey, hey)
Everyday, it's a gettin' faster,
Everyone says go ahead and ask her,
Love like yours will surely come my way, (hey, hey, hey)
Everyday seems a little longer,
Every way, love's a little stronger,
Come what may, do you ever long for
True love from me?
Everyday, it's a gettin' closer,
Goin' faster than a roller coaster,
Love like yours will surely come my way, (hey, hey, hey)
Everyday, it's a gettin' faster,
Everyone says go ahead and ask her,
Love like yours will surely c]ome my way, (hey, hey, hey)
Everyday seems a little longer,
Every way, love's a little stronger,
Come what may, do you ever long for
True love from me?
Everyday, it's a gettin' closer,
Goin' faster than a roller coaster,
Love like yours will surely come my way, (hey, hey, hey)
Love like yours will surely come my way.

The Legend of Andrew McCrew
(Written by Don)

There was a mummy at the fair, all crumpled in a folding chair.
The people passed, but didn't care

that the mummy was a man,
so tell me if you can

Chorus:
Who are you? Who are you?
Where have you been, where are you going to?
Well, Andrew McCrew must have lost his way
'Cause though he died long ago he was buried today.

Down on nightmare alley, where the shady people sway
a hobo came a-hikin' on a salty summer day
Well he hopped a freight in Dallas, and he rode out of sight
But on a turn he slipped, and he lost his grip
and he fell in-to the night.
Chorus
Well, Andrew had one leg of wood, the other leg was small.
And when he fell off the train that night he found he had no legs at all.
Well they found him in the thicket, and the undertaker came.
And they mummi fied his body for a relative to claim.
Chorus
But no one came to claim him, until the carnival passed through.
The carnies took him to their tent and they decided what to do.
Well they dressed him in a worn-out tugs and they put him on a stand.
And millions saw the legend called the famous mummy man.
Chorus
Well, what a way to live a life and what a way to die.
Left to live a living death with no one left to cry.
Petrified amazement, and wonder beyond words,
A man who found more life in death than life gave him at birth.
Chorus
But what about the ones who live and wish that they could go.
Whose lives are lost to living and performing for the show.
Well at least you got the best of life until it got the best of you,
So from all of us to what's left of you
Farewell, Andrew McCrew.
