MADONNA - LYRICS 1990's

MADONNA - I'M BREATHLESS - DICK TRACY FILM SOUNDTRACK 1990



HE'S A MAN
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

All work and no play
Makes Dick a dull dull boy, career gets in the way
Square jaw, ooo, such a handsome face
Why do you have to save the human race?
Life of crime, no it never pays
Clean up the streets and make your secret get-away
All alone, in your room with your radio
No one to hold you, had to let her go
CHORUS:
You're a man with a gun in your hand
Waging a war between good and evil can be a bore
If you don't take time, it's not nice
So here's my advice
Take your love on the run (on the run)
Oh God, let me be the one (be the one)
Ah, ah, ah, man with a gun
All boss and no brains
Bullies and thugs, they take up all your time in vain
Can't let go, someone cries and you hear the call
Who's gonna catch you, don't good guys ever fall?
CHORUS:
You're a man with a gun in your hand
Waging a war between good and evil can be a bore
If you don't take time, it's not nice
So here's my advice
Take your love on the run (on the run)
Oh God, let me be the one (be the one)
Ah, ah, ah, man with a gun
All alone, in your room with your radio
No one to hold you, I would never let you go
CHORUS:
You're a man with a gun in your hand
Waging a war between good and evil can be a bore
If you don't take time, it's not nice
So here's my advice
Take your love on the run (on the run)
Oh God, let me be the one (be the one)
'Cause I can show you some fun
And I don't mean with a gun, no
You are a man with a gun in your hand
Waging a war between good and evil can be a bore
If you don't take time, it's not nice
So here's my advice
Take your love on the run (on the run)
Oh God, let me be the one (be the one)
Ah, ah, ah, man with a gun, take it out of your hand
Waging a war between good and evil can be a bore
If you don't take time, it's not nice
So here's my advice
Take your love on the run (on the run)
Oh God, let me be the one (be the one)
Show you some fun
Gimme that gun


SOONER OR LATER
Written by Stephen Sondheim

Sooner or later you're gonna be mine
Sooner or later you're gonna be fine
Baby, it's time that you face it
I always get my man
Sooner or later you're gonna decide
Sooner or later there's nowhere to hide
Baby, it's time, so why waste it in chatter?
Let's settle the matter
Baby, you're mine on a platter
I always get my man
But if you insist, babe, the challenge delights me
The more you resist, babe, the more it excites me
And no one I've kissed, babe, ever fights me again
If you're on my list, it's just a question of when
When I get a yen, then baby, Amen
I'm counting to ten, and then...
I'm gonna love you like nothing you've known
I'm gonna love you, and you all alone
Sooner is better than later but lover
I'll hover, I'll plan
This time I'm not only getting
I'm holding my man


HANKY PANKY
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

Come over here!
Some girls they like candy, and others, they like to grind
I'll settle for the back of your hand somewhere on my behind
Treat me like I'm a bad girl, even when I'm being good to you
I don't want you to thank me, you can just spank me, mmm
Some guys like to sweet talk, and others, they like to tease
Tie my hands behind my back and, ooo, I'm in ecstasy
Don't slobber me with kisses, I can get that from my sisters
Before I get too cranky, you better...
CHORUS:
Like hanky panky (hanky panky)
Nothing like a good spanky (good spanky)
Don't take out your handkerchiefs
I don't wanna cry, I just wanna hanky panky
Like hanky panky (hanky panky)
Nothing like a good spanky (good spanky)
Don't take out your handkerchiefs
I don't wanna cry, I just wanna hanky panky guy
Ooooh
Please don't call a doctor, 'cause there's nothing wrong with me
I just like things a little rough and you better not disagree
'Cause I don't like a big softie (no) I like someone mean and bossy
Let me speak to you frankly, you better...
CHORUS:
Like hanky panky (hanky panky)
Nothing like a good spanky (good spanky)
Don't take out your handkerchiefs
I don't wanna cry, I just wanna hanky panky
Like hanky panky (hanky panky)
Nothing like a good spanky (good spanky)
Don't take out your handkerchiefs
I don't wanna cry, I just wanna hanky panky guy
Ooooh, yeah
What about? Yeah. That's an interesting...
Ooooh
My bottom hurts just thinking about it
(She wants you to) Treat me like I'm a bad girl
(She needs you to) Even when I'm being good to you
I don't want you to thank me (Don't thank her), you better...
CHORUS:
Like hanky panky (hanky panky)
Nothing like a good spanky (good spanky)
Don't take out your handkerchiefs
I don't wanna cry, I just wanna hanky panky
Like hanky panky (hanky panky)
Nothing like a good spanky (good spanky)
Don't take out your handkerchiefs
I don't wanna cry, I just wanna hanky panky guy
(Hanky panky) Oooh, yeah
(Good spanky) Get the picture?
(Don't wanna cry, I just wanna)
That's the way I came into this world (hanky panky)
The doctor said, "Lady, she's a beautiful girl&quot (good spanky)
He gave me a spanky and I started to smile (don't wanna cry, I just wanna)
So give it up, honey, 'cause I want it
Yeah
(Hanky panky, good spanky, don't wanna cry, I just wanna)


I'M GOING BANANAS
Written by Michael Kernan and Andy Paley

Hola! Ese bato loco!
I'm going bananas
And I feel like my poor little mind is being devoured by piranhas
For I'm going bananas
I'm non compos mentes
And I feel like a tooth being drilled
A nerve being killed by a dentist
For I'm non compos mentes
CHORUS:
Who knows?
Could be the tropic heat
Or something that I eat
That makes me gonzo
I do carry on so, for I'm going bananas
Someone book me a room in the hot haciendo with all my mananas
For I'm going bananas
I'm going meshuga
All day long there's a man in my brain incessently playing "Booga wooga"
But I'm going meshuga
There's bats in my belfry
Won't you make sure this straightjacket's tight
Otherwise I might get myself free
Yes, there's bats in my belfry
CHORUS:
Who knows?
Could be the wine I drink
Or it's the way I think
That makes me gonzo
Oh, Doctor Alonzo says I'm going bananas
Someone get me a bed in the "Casa de Loco" for all my mananas
For I'm going bananas
Yes, I'm going bananas
Si, I'm going bananas


CRY BABY
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

My guy is really something, he's sensitive and shy
My guy is such a bumpkin, it doesn't take much to make him cry
If you hurt someone helpless, it's like taking away all his toys
He's just a cry baby boy
My guy is sentimental, he's always feeling blue
He can be so temperamental and I don't know what I should do
If you step on a little bug he cries all over the floor
He's just a cry baby bore
CHORUS:
I don't want to hurt his feelings
But his outbursts have me really
Boo-hoo-hoo-ing all the time
If I turn out like him, I think I'm gonna cry, baby
La, la, la, la, la, la
He's such a cry baby
La, la, la, la, la, la
And I'll tell you something else
My guy is such a wet noodle, he's always teary-eyed
He acts like a real cock-a-doodle, he can't even tell you why
If you just play him a sappy song, he acts like his doggie just died
He's just a cry baby guy
No kidding, oh dear
My guy is such a whiner, he's worse than baddie so
A cockroach seen in the diner, and the tears flow out of the blue
And if I ask him to knock it off, he goes and cries in the can
He's just a cry baby man
CHORUS:
I don't want to hurt his feelings
But his outbursts have me really
Boo-hoo-hoo-ing all the time
If I turn out like him, I think I'm gonna cry, baby
La, la, la, la, la, la
He's such a cry baby
La, la, la, la, la, la
I love a cry baby
La, la, la, la, la, la
He's such a cry baby
La, la, la, la, la, la
Would you knock it off please? Thank you


SOMETHING TO REMEMBER
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard
I'M BREATHLESS - DICK TRACY FILM SOUNDTRACK 1990, SOMETHING TO REMEMBER COMPILATION ALBUM 1995

Seems I've played the game for much too long
I let people buy my love and I
Never got to sing my songs for you
I had all my bets laid all on you
Set your stakes too high, you're bound to lose
In the game of love you pay your dues
Say that happiness cannot be measured
And a little pain can bring you all life's little pleasures
What a joke
CHORUS:
I was not your woman, I was not your friend
But you gave me something to remember
No other man said "Love yourself"
Nobody else can
We weren't meant to be
At least not in this lifetime
But you gave me something to remember
I hear you still say "Love yourself"
I had all my bets laid all on you
Set your stakes too high, you're bound to lose
In the game of love I've paid my dues
Guess I'm waiting for my place in your sun
Wish I had the chance to know you and it wasn't stormy weather
What a shame, who's to blame
CHORUS:
I was not your woman, I was not your friend
But you gave me something to remember
No other man said "Love yourself"
Nobody else can
We weren't meant to be
At least not in this lifetime
But you gave me something to remember
I hear you still say "Love yourself"


BACK IN BUSINESS
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

I'm gonna show you that good guys don't always win
I'm gonna show you the brighter side of living in sin
So when you're six feet under, you won't wonder why
Just 'cause you got a halo don't mean that you can fly
If you thought it was over, you're way off track
You made a blunder, and...
CHORUS:
You put me back, back in business
This ain't no hit or miss, I'm gonna get my way
'Cause you put me back, back in business
You're my first witness, and I'm here to stay
I'm gonna show you good guys always finish last
Speaking of virtue, being nice is a thing of the past
When I want something done, I'll say it with a gun
Just 'cause you're an angel don't mean you're having fun
I just wanted to thank you for what you lack
Hope they don't hang you, 'cause...
CHORUS:
You put me back, back in business
This ain't no hit or miss, I'm gonna get my way
'Cause you put me back, back in business
You're my first witness, and I'm here to stay
A tisket, a tasket, you've lost your yellow basket
You don't know if you want to hit me or kiss me
I just wanted to thank you for what you lack
Hope they don't hang you, 'cause...
CHORUS:
You put me back, back in business
This ain't no hit or miss, I'm gonna get my way
'Cause you put me back, back in business
You're my first witness, and I'm here to stay
(He's back in business now)
Give me a hand and I'll take a bow
(He's back in business now)
Bah dah dah, bah dah dah, bah dah dah, bah dah dah
(He's coming back in style)
Give me an inch and I'll take a mile
(He's back and why oh why)
Bah dah dah, bah dah dah, bah dah dah, bah dah dah
(He's back in business now)
Give me a hand and I'll take a bow
(He's back in business now)
Bah dah dah, bah dah dah, bah dah dah, bah dah dah
(He's coming back in style)
Give me an inch and I'll take a mile
(He's back and why oh why)
Bwah bwah bwah bwah bwah bwah


MORE
Written by Stephen Sondheim

Once upon a time I had plenty of nothing
Which was fine with me
Because I had rhythm, music, love
The sun, the stars and the moon above
Had the clear blue sky and the deep blue sea
That was when the best things in life were free
Then time went by and now I got plenty of plenty
Which is fine with me
'Cause I still got love, I still got rhythm
But look at what I got to go with 'em
"Who could ask for anything more?", I hear you query
Who could ask for anything more? Well, let me tell you, dearie
Got my diamonds, got my yacht, got a guy I adore
I'm so happy with what I got, I want more!
Count your blessings, one, two, three
I just hate keeping score
Any number is fine with me
As long as it's more
As long as it's more!
I'm no mathematician, all I know is addition
I find counting a bore
Keep the number mounting, your accountant does the counting
More! More!
I got rhythm, music too, just as much as before
Got my guy and my sky of blue
Now, however, I own the view
More is better than nothing, true
But nothing's better than more, more, more
Nothing's better than more
One is fun, why not two?
And if you like two, you might as well have four
And if you like four, why not a few
Why not a slew
More! More!
If you've got a little, why not a lot?
Add a bit and it'll get to be an oodle
Every jot and tittle adds to the pot
Soon you've got the kit as well as the caboodle
More! More!
Never say when, never stop at plenty
If it's gonna rain, let it pour
Happy with ten, happier with twenty
If you like a penny, wouldn't you like many much more?
Or does that sound too greedy?
That's not greed, no, indeedy
That's just stocking the store
Gotta fill your cupboard, remember Mother Hubbard
More! More!
Each possession you possess
Helps your spirits to soar
That's what's soothing about excess
Never settle for something less
Something's better than nothing, yes!
But nothing's better than more, more, more
(Except all, all, all)
Except all, all, all
Except once you have it all (have it all)
You may find all else above (find all else above)
That though things are bliss
There's one thing you miss, and that's
More! More!
More! More! More! More!
More! More! More!


WHAT CAN YOU LOSE
Written by Stephen Sondheim

What can you lose?
Only the blues
Why keep concealing everything you're feeling?
Say it to her, what can you lose?
Maybe it shows
She's had clues, which she chose to ignore
Maybe though she knows
And just wants to go on as before
As a friend, nothing more
So she closes the door
Well, if she does
Those are the dues
Once the words are spoken
Something may be broken
Still, you love her
What can you lose?
But what if she goes?
At least now, you have part of her
What if she had to choose?
Leave it alone
Hold it all in
Better a bone
Don't even begin
With so much to win
There's too much to lose

Look around, everywhere you turn is heartache
It's everywhere that you go (look around)
You try everything you can to escape
The pain of life that you know (life that you know)

CHORUS:
Come on, vogue
Let your body groove to the music (groove to the music)
Hey, hey, hey

Swaying room as the music starts
Strangers making the most of the dark
Two by two their bodies become one
I see you through the smokey air
Can't you feel the weight of my stare
You're so close but still a world away
What I'm dying to say, is that
CHORUS:
I'm crazy for you
Touch me once and you'll know it's true
I never wanted anyone like this
It's all brand new
You'll feel it in my kiss
I'm crazy for you
Crazy for you
Trying hard to control my heart
I walk over to where you are
Eye to eye we need no words at all
Slowly now we begin to move
Every breath I'm deeper into you
Soon we two are standing still in time
If you read my mind, you'll see
CHORUS:
I'm crazy for you
Touch me once and you'll know it's true
I never wanted anyone like this
It's all brand new
You'll feel it in my kiss
You'll feel it in my kiss
Because I'm crazy for you
Touch me once and you'll know it's true
I never wanted anyone like this
It's all brand new
You'll feel it in my kiss
I'm crazy for you
Crazy for you
Crazy for you
Crazy for you
It's all brand new
I'm crazy for you
And you know it's true
I'm crazy, crazy for you
It's all brand new

And you know it's true
Yeah I'm crazy for you
Crazy for you baby
I'm crazy for you

JUSTIFY MY LOVE
Written by Lenny Kravitz and Ingrid Chavez
THE IMMACULATE COLLECTION COMPILATION ALBUM 1990, CELEBRATION COMPILATION ALBUM 2009

I wanna kiss you in Paris
I wanna hold your hand in Rome
I wanna run naked in a rainstorm
Make love in a train cross-country
You put this in me
So now what, so now what?
CHORUS:
Wanting, needing, waiting
For you to justify my love (my love, my love)
Hoping, praying
For you to justify my love
I want to know you
Not like that
I don't wanna be your mother
I don't wanna be your sister either
I just wanna be your lover
I wanna be your baby
Kiss me, that's right, kiss me
CHORUS:
Wanting, needing, waiting
For you to justify my love (my love, my love)
Yearning, burning
For you to justify my love
What are you gonna do?
What are you gonna do?
Talk to me
Tell me your dreams
Am I in them?
Tell me your fears
Are you scared?
Tell me your stories
I'm not afraid of who you are
We can fly!
Poor is the man
Whose pleasures depend
On the permission of another
Love me, that's right, love me
I wanna be your baby
Mmm yeah
CHORUS:
Wanting, needing, waiting
For you to justify my love (my love, my love)
I'm open and ready
For you to justify my love (my love, my love)
To justify my love
Wanting, to justify (for you to justify my love, my love, my love)
Waiting, to justify my love
Praying, to justify (for you to justify my love)
To justify my love
I'm open, to justify my love (my love, my love)
(Justify my love)


RESCUE ME
Written by Madonna and Shep Pettibone

I'm talking, I'm talking
I believe in the power of love
I'm singing, I'm singing
I believe that you can rescue me
With you I'm not a little girl
With you I'm not a man
When all the hurt inside of me comes out
You understand
You see that I'm ferocious
You see that I am weak
You see that I am silly
And pretentious and a freak
But I don't feel too strange for you
Don't know exactly what you do
I think when love is pure you try
To understand the reasons why
And I prefer this mystery
It cancels out my misery
And gives me hope that there could be
A person that loves me
CHORUS:
Rescue me (Rescue me)
It's hard to believe
Your love has given me hope
Rescue me (Rescue me)
It's hard to believe
I'm drowning, baby throw out your rope
With you I'm not a fascist
Can't play you like a toy
And when I need to dominate
You're not my little boy
You see that I am hungry
For a life of understanding
And you forgive my angry little heart
When she's demanding
You bring me to my knees
While I'm scratching out the eyes
Of a world I want to conquer
And deliver, and despise
And right while I am kneeling there
I suddenly begin to care
And understand that there could be
A person that loves me
CHORUS:
Rescue me (Rescue me)
It's hard to believe
Your love has given me hope
Rescue me (Rescue me)
It's hard to believe
I'm drowning, baby throw out your rope
Love is understanding
It's hard to believe
Life can be so demanding
I'm sending out an S.O.S.
Stop me from drowning
Baby I'll do the rest
CHORUS:
Rescue me (Rescue me)
Your love has given me hope
(Your love has given me hope)
Rescue me (Rescue me)
I'm drowning
Baby throw out your rope
(Baby throw out your rope)
Rescue me (Rescue me)
Your love has given me hope
(Your love has given me hope)
Rescue me (Rescue me)
I'm drowning
Baby throw out your rope
(Baby throw out your rope)
Ooh ahh, ooh ahh, love is understanding
Ooh ahh, ooh ahh, love is understanding
Love is understanding
It's hard to believe
Life can be so demanding
I'm sending out an S.O.S.
Rescue me, rescue me
It's not my business to decide
How good you are for me
How valuable you are
And what the world can see
Only that you try to understand me
And have the courage to love me for me
I believe
(I believe in the power)
I believe that you can rescue me
(I believe that you can rescue me)
I believe
(I believe in the power)
I believe that you can rescue me
(I believe that you can rescue me)
I'm singing I believe
(I believe in the power)
I believe that you can rescue me
(I believe that you can rescue me)
I'm singing, I'm singing, I'm singing
(I believe in the power)
I believe that you can rescue me
(I believe that you can rescue me)
I'm talking, I'm talking
(I believe in the power)
I believe in the power of love
(I believe that you can rescue me)
I'm talking, I'm talking
(I believe in the power)
I believe in the power of love
(I believe that you can rescue me)
I'm singing, I'm singing, I believe
(I believe in the power)
I believe that you can rescue me
(I believe that you can rescue me)
Hey hey, hey hey
(I believe in the power)
R.E.S.C.U.E. me
(I believe you can rescue me)
Only you can rescue me
Hey hey, hey...
(I believe in the power)
(I believe you can rescue me)

Erotica, romance
Erotica, romance
My name is Dita
I'll be your mistress tonight
I'd like to put you in a trance
If I take you from behind
Push myself into your mind
When you least expect it
Will you try and reject it
If I'm in charge
And I treat you like a child
Will you let yourself go wild
Let my mouth go where it wants to
Give it up, do as I say
Give it up and let me have my way
I'll give you love
I'll hit you like a truck
I'll give you love
I'll teach you how to... aahh
I'd like to put you in a trance
All over
CHORUS:
Erotic, erotic
Put your hands all over my body
Erotic, erotic
Put your hands all over my body
Erotic, erotic
Put your hands all over my body
Erotic, erotic
Once you put your hand in the flame
You can never be the same
There's a certain satisfaction
In a little bit of pain
I can see you understand
I can tell that you're the same
If you're afraid, well rise above
I only hurt the ones I love
Give it up, do as I say
Give it up and let me have my way
I'll give you love
I'll hit you like a truck
I'll give you love
I'll teach you how to... aahh
I'd like to put you in a trance
All over
CHORUS:
Erotic, erotic
Put your hands all over my body
Erotic, erotic
Put your hands all over my body
Erotic, erotic
Put your hands all over my body
Erotic, erotic
Erotica, romance
I'd like to put you in a trance
Erotica, romance
Put your hands all over my body
I don't think you know what pain is
I don't think you've gone that way
I could bring you so much pleasure
I'll come to you when you say
I know you want me
I'm not gonna hurt you
Just close your eyes
Erotic, erotic
Erotic, erotic
Erotic, erotic
Erotic, erotic
Put your hands all over my body
All over me
All over me
Erotica, romance
I'd like to put you in a trance
Erotica, romance
I like to do a different kind of... aahh
Erotica, romance
I'd like to put you in a trance
Erotica, romance
Put your hands all over my body
Only the one that hurts you
Can make you feel better
Only the one that inflicts the pain
Can take it away

FEVER
Written by J. Davenport and E. Cooley

You give me
You give me fever
Never know how much I love you
Never know how much I care
When you put your arms around me
I get a fever that's so hard to bear
Listen to me baby
Hear every word I say
No one can love you the way I do
'Cause they don't know how to love you my way
CHORUS:
You give me fever
When you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning
Fever all through the night
Sun lights up the daytime
Moon lights up the night
My eyes light up when you call my name
'Cause I know you're gonna treat me right
Bless my soul I love you
Take this heart away
Take these arms I'll never use
And just believe in what my lips have to say
CHORUS:
You give me fever
When you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning
Fever all through the night
Everybody's got the fever
That is something you should know
Fever isn't such a new scene
Fever started long ago
CHORUS:
You give me fever
Fever
You give me, you give me fever
You give me... fever
When you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning
Fever all through the night
Romeo loved Juliet
Juliet she felt the same
When he put his arms around her
He said Julie baby you're my flame
He gave her fever
Sun lights up the daytime
Moon lights up the night
My eyes light up when you call my name
'Cause I know you're gonna treat me right
CHORUS:
You give me fever
When you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning
Fever all through the night
Fever with his kisses
Fever when he holds me tight
Everybody's got the fever
That is something you should know
Fever isn't such a new scene
Fever started long ago
Fever
Captain Smith and Pocahontas
Had a very mad affair
When her daddy tried to kill him
She said, daddy oh don't you dare
He gives me fever
With his kisses
Fever when he holds me tight
Fever, I'm his Misses
Daddy, won't you treat him right
CHORUS:
Fever when you kiss them
Fever if you live and learn
Fever, 'til you sizzle
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn


BYE BYE BABY
Written by Madonna and Shep Pettibone

This is not a love song
Bye bye baby
I keep on waiting, anticipating
But I can't wait forever
You say you love me
You're thinking of me
But we're never together
CHORUS:
Bye bye baby bye bye
It's your turn to cry
That's why we have to say goodbye
So say goodbye
Bye bye baby bye bye
It's your turn to cry
This time we have to say goodbye
So say goodbye
You had your chances
All your romances
And now I just don't want you
I know I love you because I hate you
And now I'd rather haunt you
CHORUS:
Bye bye baby bye bye
It's your turn to cry
That's why we have to say goodbye
So say goodbye
Bye bye baby bye bye
It's your turn to cry
That's why we have to say goodbye
So say goodbye
You're so beautiful
What makes you feel exciting?
What wakes you up inside?
Does it make you feel good to see me cry?
I think it does
That's why it's time to say bye bye
CHORUS:
Bye bye baby bye bye
It's your turn to cry
That's why we have to say goodbye
So say goodbye
Bye bye baby bye bye
It's your turn to cry
That's why we have to say goodbye
So say goodbye
I don't wanna keep the bright flame
Of your ego going
So I'll just stop blowin' in the wind
To love you is a sin
Adiós
Uh this is not a love song
I'd like to hurt you
What excites you?
What turns you on?
What makes you feel good?
Does it make you feel good to see me cry?
I think it does
That's why it's time to say goodbye
Bye bye
The first time
And the last time
You can forget about it baby
Forget the rules
Forget the fools
Forget your fears
Forget my tears
You can forget about it baby
Bye bye baby bye bye
You can forget about it baby
'Cause it's the first time
And the last time
You'll ever see me cry
You fucked it up!


DEEPER AND DEEPER
Written by Madonna, Shep Pettibone and Tony Shimkin
EROTICA ALBUM 1992, GHV2 COMPILATION ALBUM 2001

Deeper and deeper and deeper and deeper
Sweeter and sweeter and sweeter and sweeter
CHORUS:
I can't help falling in love
I fall deeper and deeper the further I go
Kisses sent from heaven above
They get sweeter and sweeter the more that I know
When you know the notes to sing
You can sing most anything
That's what my mama told me
Round and round and round you go
When you find love you'll always know
I let my father mold me
Daddy couldn't be all wrong
(Not gonna let you slip away, I'm gonna be there)
And my mama made me learn this song
(You're gonna bring your love to me, I'm gonna get you)
That's why
CHORUS:
I can't help falling in love
I fall deeper and deeper the further I go
Kisses sent from heaven above
They get sweeter and sweeter the more that I know
The deeper I go
All is fair in love she said
Think with your heart, not with your head
That's what my mama told me
All the little things you do
Will end up coming back to you
I let my father mold me
Daddy couldn't be all wrong
(Not gonna let you slip away, I'm gonna be there)
And my mama made me learn this song
(You're gonna bring your love to me, I'm gonna get you)
That's why
CHORUS:
I can't help falling in love
I fall deeper and deeper the further I go
Kisses sent from heaven above
They get sweeter and sweeter the more that I know
I can't help falling in love
I fall deeper and deeper the further I go
Kisses sent from heaven above
They get sweeter and sweeter the more that I know
Someone said that romance was dead
And I believed it instead of remembering
What my mama told me
Let my father mold me
Then you tried to hold me
You remind me what they said
This feeling inside
I can't explain
But my love is alive
And I'm never gonna hide it again
Daddy couldn't be all wrong
(Not gonna let you slip away, I'm gonna be there)
And my mama made me learn this song
(You're gonna bring your love to me, I'm gonna get you)
That's why
CHORUS:
I can't help falling in love
I fall deeper and deeper the further I go
Kisses sent from heaven above
They get sweeter and sweeter the more that I know
Deeper and deeper and deeper and deeper
Never gonna hide it again
Sweeter and sweeter and sweeter and sweeter
Never gonna have to pretend
Deeper and deeper and deeper and deeper
Never gonna hide it again
Sweeter and sweeter and sweeter and sweeter
Never gonna have to pretend
You got to just let your body move to the music
You got to just let your body go with the flow
Falling in love, falling in love, falling in love
I can't keep from falling in love with you
You know there's nothing better that I'd like to do


WHERE LIFE BEGINS
Written by Madonna and Andre Betts

Warm inside
I'd like to direct your attention
To something that needs directing to
A lot of people talk about
Dining in and eating out
I guess that's what this song's about
I know this is not a dining room conversation
And you don't have to listen if you don't have the time
But let me remind you
In case you don't already know
Dining out can happen down below
Everybody's talkin' 'bout
Wanting that and needing this
I'd just like to know
If you want to learn
A different kind of kiss
CHORUS:
So won't you
Go down
Where it's warm inside
Go down
Where I cannot hide
Go down
Where all life begins
Go down
That's where my love is
Now what could be better than a home cooked meal
How you want to eat it
Depends on how you feel
You can eat all you want
And you don't get fat
Now where else can you go for a meal like that
It's not fair to be selfish and stingy
Every girl should experience eating out
Sometimes when I come home from a hard day at work
I swear it's all I can think about
Everybody's talkin' 'bout
Wanting that and needing this
I'd just like to know
If you want to learn
A different way to kiss
CHORUS:
So won't you
Go down
Where it's warm inside
Go down
Where I cannot hide
Go down
Where all life begins
Go down
That's where my love is
Colonel Sanders says it best
"Finger lickin' good"
Let's put what you've learned to the test
Can you make a fire without using wood
Are you still hungry
Aren't you glad we came
I'm glad you brought your raincoat
I think it's beginning to rain
Everybody's talkin' 'bout
Wanting that and needing this
I'd just like to know
If you want to learn
A different way to kiss
CHORUS:
So won't you
Go down
Where it's warm inside
Go down
Where I cannot hide
Go down
Where all life begins
Go down
That's where my love is
Where it's warm inside
Go down
Where I cannot hide
Go down
Where all life begins
Go down
That's where my love is
That's where my love is
Come inside
That's where all life begins
It's warm inside


BAD GIRL
Written by Madonna and Shep Pettibone

Something's missing and I don't know why
I always feel the need to hide my feelings from you
Is it me or you that I'm afraid of
I tell myself I'll show you what I'm made of
Can't bring myself to let you go
Don't want to cause you any pain
But I love you just the same
And you'll always be my baby
In my heart I know we've come apart
And I don't know where to start
What can I do
I don't wanna feel blue
CHORUS:
Bad girl drunk by six
Kissing someone else's lips
Smoked too many cigarettes today
I'm not happy when I act this way
Bad girl drunk by six
Kissing some kind stranger's lips
Smoked too many cigarettes today
I'm not happy
I'm not happy
Something's happened and I can't go back
I fall apart every time you hand your heart out to me
What happens now
I know I don't deserve you
I wonder how
I'm ever gonna hurt you
Can't bring myself to let you go
I don't want to cause you any pain
But I love you just the same
And you'll always be my baby
In my heart I know we've come apart
And I don't know where to start
What can I do
I don't wanna feel blue
CHORUS:
Bad girl drunk by six
Kissing someone else's lips
Smoked too many cigarettes today
I'm not happy when I act this way
Bad girl drunk by six
Kissing some kind stranger's lips
Smoked too many cigarettes today
I'm not happy
I'm not happy
This way
I don't want to cause you any pain
But I love you just the same
And you'll always be my baby
In my heart I know we've come apart
And I don't know where to start
What can I do
I don't wanna feel blue
CHORUS:
Bad girl drunk by six
Kissing someone else's lips
Smoked too many cigarettes today
I'm not happy when I act this way
Bad girl drunk by six
Kissing someone else's lips
Smoked too many cigarettes today
I'm not happy when I act this way
I'm not happy
This way
Bad girl drunk by six (I'm not happy)
Kissing someone else's lips (this way)
Smoked too many cigarettes today
I'm not happy when I act this way
Bad girl drunk by six
Kissing someone else's lips
Smoked too many cigarettes today
I'm not happy
I'm not happy
This way
Not happy this way
Kissing some kind stranger's lips


WAITING
Written by Madonna and Andre Betts

Well I know from experience
That if you have to ask for something
More than once or twice
It wasn't yours in the first place
And that's hard to accept
When you love someone
And you're led to believe
In their moment of need
That they want what you want
When they don'tDon't go breaking my heart like you said you would
Baby you're no good
And you hurt me like no other lover ever could
Don't go making me cry
You're gonna say goodbye
Baby tell me why
Tell me why or you're gonna have to justify
CHORUS:
This waiting
For you
Just waiting
Can't you see
I'm waiting
For you
Don't break my heart
Waiting
For you
I'm waiting
Can't you see
I'm waiting
For you
Don't break my heart
It was so easy in the beginning
When you didn't feel like running from your feelings
Like you are now
What happened?
What do I remind you of?
Your past
Your dreams
Or some part of yourself that you just can't love?
I wish I could believe you
Or at least have the courage to leave you
Life has taught me that love
With a man like you
Is only gonna make me blue
But I love you anyway
No matter what you do
You don't come around here
Like you did before
When you did adore
Tell me what I did to deserve this
CHORUS:
Waiting
For you
Just waiting
Can't you see I'm waiting
For you
Don't break my heart
Waiting
For you
Just waiting
Can't you see I'm waiting
For you
Don't break my heart
Finally I see a different man
Only love can hurt like this can
Finally I see a different face
Tell me who is going to take my place
Don't go breaking my heart like you said you would
Baby you're no good
And you hurt me like no other lover ever could
Don't go making me cry
You're gonna say goodbye
Baby tell me why
Tell me why 'cause you're gonna have to justify
I knew it from the start that you would desert me
You're gonna break my heart, baby please don't hurt me
I knew it from the start that you would desert me
You're gonna break my heart, baby please don't hurt me
Finally I see a different man
Only love can hurt like this can
Finally I see a different face
Tell me who is going to take my place
CHORUS:
Waiting
For you
I'm waiting
Can't you see
I'm waiting
For you
Don't break my heart
Waiting
For you
I'm waiting
Can't you see
I'm waiting
For you
Don't break my heart
I knew it from the start that you would desert me
You're gonna break my heart, baby please don't hurt me
I knew it from the start that you would desert me
You're gonna break my heart, baby please don't hurt me
CHORUS:
Waiting
For you
I'm waiting
Can't you see I'm waiting
For you
Don't break my heart
Break my heart
Don't break my heart
Break my heart
Don't break my heart
Break my heart
Don't break my heart
Break my heart
You broke my heart
You broke my heart
You broke my heart
Uh next time you want pussy... huh
Just look in the mirror baby


THIEF OF HEARTS
Written by Madonna and Shep Pettibone

Bitch!
You're a thief of hearts
And now you'll have to pay
How many licks does it take?
You're a thief of hearts
And now you'll have to pay
Which leg do you want me to break?
You'll be sorry
You'll be sorry
Here she comes
Little Miss thinks she can have what she wants
In a blink of an eye
Here she comes
Acts like she's your best friend
Then you turn your back and she's off with your guy
CHORUS:
She's a thief of hearts
What will happen to the thief of hearts
What she's done is a crime
She's a thief of hearts
Someone please arrest her
She's a thief of hearts

And gets away with it
Not this time
Here she comes acting all dejected
So you give advice and she gives you her poison
Here she comes little miss black widow
First she spins her web and she's stealing your boyfriend

What will happen to the thief of hearts
What she's done is a crime

Well anybody can do it

Thinks she'll get respect if she screws it

WORDS
Written by Madonna and Shep Pettibone

CHORUS:
Words
They cut like a knife
Cut into my life
I don't want to hear your words
They always attack
Please take them all back
If they're yours I don't want anymore
You think you're so smart
You try to manipulate me
You try to humiliate with your words
You think you're so chic
You write me beautiful letters
You think you're so much better than me
But your actions speak louder than words
And they're only words unless they're true
Your actions speak louder than promises
You're inclined to make and inclined to break
CHORUS:
Words
They cut like a knife
Cut into my life
I don't want to hear your words
They always attack
Please take them all back
If they're yours I don't want anymore
You think you're so shrewd
You try to bring me low
You try to gain control with your words
But your actions speak louder than words
And they're only words unless they're true
Your actions speak louder than promises
You're inclined to make and inclined to break
CHORUS:
Words
They cut like a knife
Cut into my life
I don't want to hear your words
They always attack
Please take them all back
If they're yours I don't want anymore
Friends they tried to warn me about you
He has good manners, he's so romantic
But he'll only make you blue
How can I explain to them
How could they know
I'm in love with your words
Your words
You think you're so sly
I caught you at your game
You will not bring me shame
With your words
But your actions speak louder than words
And they're only words unless they're true
Your actions speak louder than promises
You're inclined to make and inclined to break
CHORUS:
Words
They cut like a knife
Cut into my life
I don't want to hear your words
They always attack
Please take them all back
If they're yours I don't want anymore
Too much
Blinding light
Your touch
I've grown tired
Of your words
Words (words)
A linguistic form that can meaningfully be spoken in isolation (words)
Conversation
Expression
A promise
A sigh
In short
A lie
A message from heaven
A signal from hell
I give you my word
I'll never tell
Language that is used in anger
Personal feelings signaling danger
A brief remark
An utterance
Information
Don't mince words
Don't be evasive
Speak your mind
Be persuasive
A pledge
A commitment
Communication
Words


RAIN

EROTICA ALBUM 1992, SOMETHING TO REMEMBER COMPILATION ALBUM 1995

I feel it
It's coming
CHORUS:
Rain
Feel it on my finger tips
Hear it on my window pane
Your love's coming down like
Rain
Wash away my sorrow
Take away my pain
Your love's coming down like
Rain
When your lips are burning mine
And you take the time to tell me how you feel
When you listen to my words
And I know you've heard
I know it's real
Rain is what this thunder brings
For the first time
I can hear my heart sing
Call me a fool but I know I'm not
I'm gonna stand out here on the mountain top
Til I feel your
CHORUS:
Rain
Feel it on my finger tips
Hear it on my window pane
Your love's coming down like
Rain
Wash away my sorrow
Take away my pain
Your love's coming down like
Rain
When you looked into my eyes
And you said goodbye
Could you see my tears
When I turned the other way
Did you hear me say
I'd wait for all the dark clouds bursting in a perfect sky
You promised me when you said goodbye
That you'd return when the storm was done
And now I'll wait for the light
I'll wait for the sun
Till I feel your
CHORUS:
Rain
Feel it on my finger tips
Hear it on my window pane
Your love's coming down like
Rain
Wash away my sorrow
Take away my pain
Your love's coming down like
Here comes the sun

And I say
Never go away
Waiting is the hardest thing
It's strange I feel like I've known you before
I tell myself that if I believe in you
And I want to understand you
In the dream of you
More and more and more
With all my heart and all my soul
When I'm with you
That by sheer force of will
I feel like a magical child
I will raise you from the ground
Everything strange
And without a sound you'll appear
Everything wild
And surrender to me
To love
Rain is what the thunder brings
For the first time
I can hear my heart sing
Call me a fool but I know I'm not
I'm gonna stand out here on the mountain top
Till I feel your
Rain
I feel it
It's coming
Your love's coming down like
Rain
I feel it
It's coming
Your love's coming down like

Your love's coming down like
Rain
I feel it
It's coming
Your love's coming down like
Rain
Step out on a mountain top and wait for you to call my name
Rain


WHY'S IT SO HARD
Written by Madonna and Shep Pettibone

Why's it so hard to love one another
Why's it so hard to love
Why's it so hard to love one another
Why's it so hard to love
What do I have to do to be accepted
What do I have to say
What do I have to do to be respected
How do I have to play
What do I have to look like to feel I'm equal
Where do I have to go
What club do I have to join to prove I'm worthy
Who do I have to know
CHORUS:
I'm telling you brothers, sisters
Why can't we learn to challenge the system
Without living in pain
Brothers, sisters
Why can't we learn to accept that we're different
Before it's too late
What do I have to learn to know what's right for me
What do I have to know
What am I going to do when I feel righteous
Where do I have to go
Who should get to say what I believe in
Who should have the right
What am I going to do with all this anger
Why do I have to fight
CHORUS:
I'm telling you brothers, sisters
Why can't we learn to challenge the system
Without living in pain
Brothers, sisters
Why can't we learn to accept that we're different
Why's it so damn hard
Bring your love, sing your love
Wear your love, share your love
Bring your love, sing your love
Wear your love, share your love
Bring your love, sing your love
Wear your love, share your love
Bring your love, sing your love
Wear your love, show your sister how
(Why's it so damn hard)
Brothers, sisters
What do I have to say
Brothers, sisters
How do I have to play
Brothers, sisters
Who should have the right
Brothers, sisters
Why do I have to fight
Why's it so hard to love one another
Love your sister, love your brother
Why's it so hard to love one another
Love your sister, love your brother
Why's it so hard to love one another
Why's it so hard to love
CHORUS:
I'm telling you brothers, sisters
Why can't we learn to challenge the system
Without living in pain
Brothers, sisters
Why can't we learn to accept that we're different
Why's it so damn hard
Sing your love, share your love
Before it's too late
Sing your love, share your love
Before it's too late
Sing your love, share your love
Before it's too late
Sing your love, share your love
Ahh
Love your brother now, show your sister how
Love your brother now, show your sister
Love your brother now, show your sister how
Love your brother now, show your sister


IN THIS LIFE

Sitting on a park bench
Thinking about a friend of mine
He was only 23
Gone before he had his time
It came without a warning
Didn't want his friends to see him cry
He knew the day was dawning
And I didn't have a chance to say goodbye
CHORUS:
In this life
I loved you most of all
What for?
'Cause now you're gone and I have to ask myself
What for?
What for?
Driving down the boulevard
Thinking about a man I knew
He was like a father to me
Nothing in the world that he wouldn't do
Taught me to respect myself
Said that we're all made of flesh and blood
Why should he be treated differently
Shouldn't matter who you choose to love
CHORUS:
In this life
I loved you most of all
What for?
'Cause now you're gone and I have to ask myself
What for?
People pass by and I wonder who's next
Who determines, who knows best?
Is there a lesson I'm supposed to learn in this case
Ignorance is not bliss
CHORUS:
In this life
I loved you most of all
What for?
'Cause now you're gone and I have to ask myself
What for?
People pass by and I wonder who's next
Who determines, who knows best
Is there a lesson I'm supposed to learn in this case
Ignorance is not bliss
Have you ever watched your best friend die?
Have you ever watched a grown man cry?
Some say that life isn't fair
I say that people just don't care
They'd rather turn the other way
While we wait for this thing to go away
Why do we have to pretend?
Some day I pray it will end
I hope it's in this life
I hope it's in this life time
I hope it's in this life
I hope it's in this life time


DID YOU DO IT?
Written by Madonna and Andre Betts

Tell me
We're gonna do it after we finish?
Ya whazzup
We're gonna do it after we finish?
Tick tick tock, Mo is on the jock
I did her in the limo as we went around the block
Sucked the mole on her hip
Licked the lipstick off her lip
She got real excited, yo she started to flip
She says 'Dre baby 'Dre baby oh
I said just relax, yo chill Mo
We made a right turn onto Central Park West
One hand gripped the car, the other on her breast
Did you do it? Ya know I did it
Did you do it? Ya know I did it
Did you do it? Ya know I did it
I let the seat recline and I hit it
Did you do it? I said I did it
Did you do it? I said I did it
Did you do it? I said I did it
But I backed out quick because I thought I split it
CHORUS:
Waiting for you, just waiting
Waiting for you
Waiting for you, just waiting
Waiting for you
Uh Ho's in the front for the 1990's
Walkin' around showing off their hinies
Wigglin' they're jigglin' they're swingin' and flingin'
9-7-0 Yo Ho, your phone's ringin'
You get a call from your John, you meet him at the mot'
He's chillin' in a pamper and a fur coat
Your head starts spinnin', you drunk too much gin in
Your jaw starts grinnin', and this is the beginnin'
Of a night of an average Ho
It ain't all about working on the streets no more
Here's another episode of dropping off a load
Peter was on the beater, I was about to explode
I couldn't hold back (so whadya do)
I took her to my place (Yo did she sit on your face)
She was so good just like uh, Campbell's soup
I won't try to front so here's the rude scoop
I dipped it and I stripped it and I ripped it like before
I had her screamin', nope no diddily, nope no more
I can't stop once I get started
But yo honey, uh get them legs parted
CHORUS:
Waiting for you, just waiting
Waiting for you
Waiting for you, just waiting
Waiting for you
Did you do it? Ya know I did it
Did you do it? Ya know I did it
Did you do it? Ya know I did it
I let the seat recline and I hit it
Did you do it? Ya know I did it
Did you do it? Ya know I did it
Did you do it? Ya know I did it
But I backed out quick because I thought I split it
They come with the rough stuff, boy we hit it, split it and forget it
In the same order as ya hear, boy I'm not frontin' (me not front)
Don't ask what, me tell ya the truth, you understand me eye
The iron eye can get busy, you know what I'm saying
Clean up me rifle, clean up me rifle
Clean up me rifle, me elephant rifle
Clean up me rifle, you clean up me rifle
Clean up me rifle, elephant rifle
I flipped her from the top of my head, enough said
I'm the brother with the short short dreads
A couple different styles, a couple different 'fros
Just some that my souls about some girls I know
I gotta hit it hard because I go for the gusto
And I cover up the moans by turnin' up my stereo
Did you do it? Ya know I did it
Did you do it? Ya know I did it
Did you do it? Ya know I did it
I let the seat recline and I hit it
Did you do it? Yo, ya know I did it
Did you do it? I said I did it
Did you do it? Yo
I backed out quick because I thought I split it
You didn't do it
He didn't do it
I made her go
CHORUS:
Waiting for you, just waiting
(Man she's been waiting)
Waiting for you
(Yeah she can keep on waiting)
Waiting for you, just waiting
(She's been waiting and you have not hit it)
Waiting for you
Waiting for you, just waiting
Waiting for you


SECRET GARDEN
Written by Madonna and Andre Betts

In my secret garden
I'm looking for the perfect flower
Waiting for my finest hour
In my secret garden
I still believe after all
I still believe and I fall
You plant the seed and I'll watch it grow
I wonder when I'll start to show
I wonder if I'll ever know
Where my place is
Where my face is
I know it's in here somewhere
I just wish I knew the color of my hair
I know the answer's hiding somewhere
In my secret garden
CHORUS:
There's a petal that isn't torn
A heart that will not harden
A place that I can be born
In my secret garden
A rose without a thorn
A lover without scorn
If I wait for the rain
To kiss me and undress me
Will I look like a fool
Wet and a mess
Will I still be thirsty
Will I pass the test
And if I look for the rainbow
Will I see it
Or will it pass right by
'Cause I'm not supposed to see
'Cause the blind are never free
Even at my secret garden
There's a chance that I could harden
That's why I'll keep on looking for
CHORUS:
A petal that isn't torn
A heart that will not harden
A place that I can be born
In my secret garden
A rose without a thorn
A lover without scorn
I still believe
I still believe
'Cause after all is said and done
I'm still alive
And the boots have come and trampled on me
And I'm still alive
'Cause the sun has kissed me
And caressed me
And I'm strong
And there's a chance
That I will grow
This I know
So I'm still looking for
CHORUS:
A petal that isn't torn
A heart that will not harden
A place that I can be born
It's in my secret garden
A rose without a thorn
A lover without scorn
Somewhere in fontainebleau
Lies my secret garden

SURVIVAL
Written by Madonna and Dallas Austin

I'll never be an angel

I'm gonna be living to tell
So here's my story
No risk, no glory
CHORUS:
A little up and down and all around
It's all about survival
I'll never be an angel
I'll never be a saint, it's true
I'm too busy surviving
Whether it's heaven or hell
I'm gonna be living to tell
So here's my question
Does your criticism
Have you caught up in what you cannot see
Well if you give me respect
Then you'll know what to expect
CHORUS:
A little up and down and all around
It's all about survival
Up and down and all around

Up and down and all around
I'll never be a saint, it's true
Up and down and all around
Survival


SECRET

BEDTIME STORIES ALBUM 1994, GHV2 COMPILATION ALBM 2001, CELEBRATION COMPILATION ALBUM 2009

Things haven't been the same
Since you came into my life
You found a way to touch my soul
And I'm never ever ever gonna let it go
Happiness lies in your own hand
It took me much too long to understand
How it could be
Until you shared your
Secret with me
CHORUS:
Something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over me
My baby's got a secret
You gave me back the paradise
That I thought I lost for good
You helped me find the reasons why
It took me by surprise that you understood
You knew all along
What I never wanted to say
Until I learned to love myself
I was never ever lovin' anybody else
Happiness lies in your own hand
It took me much too long to understand
How it could be
Until you shared your
Secret with me
CHORUS:
Something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over me
My baby's got a secret

Happiness lies in your own hand
It took me much too long to understand
How it could be
Until you shared your
Secret with me

Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over me
My baby's got a secret

Mmm mmm something's comin' over me
My baby's got a secret
Mmm mmm my baby's got a secret
Mmm mmm my baby's got a secret
Mmm mmm my baby's got a secret for me

INSIDE OF ME
Written by Madonna, Dave Hall and Nellee Hooper

I can't stop thinking of you
The things we used to do
The secrets we once shared
I'll always find them there
In my memories
But this heartache isn't going anywhere
In the public eye I act like I don't care
When there's no one watching me
I'm crying
CHORUS:
I will always have you
Inside of me
Even though you're gone
Love still carries on
Love
Inside of me
I keep a picture of you
Next to my bed at night
And when I wake up scared
I know I'll find you there
Watching over me
When my world seems to crumble all around
And foolish people try to bring me down
I just think of your smiling face and
I'm flying
CHORUS:
I will always have you
Inside of me
Even though you're gone
Love still carries on
Love
Inside of me
You'll always be
Inside of my heart
Inside of me
When my world seems to crumble all around
And foolish people try to bring me down
I just think of your smiling face and
I'm flying
CHORUS:
I will always have you
Inside of me
Even though you're gone
Love still carries on
Love
Inside of me
I will always have you
Inside of me
Even though you're gone
Love still carries on
Love
Still carries on
I will always feel you
You'll always be
Inside of my heart
I'll always have you
Inside of me
I will always have you

It's human nature (It's human nature)
And I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)

Don't hang your shit on me (It's human nature)
(Handle it)
You wouldn't let me say the words I longed to say
You didn't want to see life through my eyes
(Express yourself, don't repress yourself)
You tried to shove me back inside your narrow room
And silence me with bitterness and lies
(Express yourself, don't repress yourself)
Did I say something wrong?
Oops I didn't know I couldn't talk about sex
(I musta been crazy)
Did I stay too long?
Oops I didn't know I couldn't speak my mind
(What was I thinking)
CHORUS:
And I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
It's human nature (It's human nature)
And I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
I'm not your bitch
Don't hang your shit on me (It's human nature)
(Handle it)
You punished me for telling you my fantasies
I'm breakin' all the rules I didn't make
(Express yourself, don't repress yourself)
You took my words and made a trap for silly fools
You held me down and tried to make me break
(Express yourself, don't repress yourself)
Did I say something true?
Oops I didn't know I couldn't talk about sex
(I musta been crazy)
Did I have a point of view?
Oops I didn't know I couldn't talk about you
(What was I thinking)
CHORUS:
And I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
It's human nature (It's human nature)
And I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
I'm not your bitch
Don't hang your shit on me (It's human nature)
(Handle it)
Express yourself, don't repress yourself
Express yourself, don't repress yourself
Express yourself, don't repress yourself
Express yourself, don't repress yourself
Express yourself, don't repress yourself
Express yourself, don't repress yourself
Did I say something true?
Oops I didn't know I couldn't talk about sex
(I musta been crazy)
Did I have a point of view?
Oops I didn't know I couldn't talk about you

And I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
It's human nature (It's human nature)
And I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
I'm not your bitch
Don't hang your shit on me (It's human nature)
(Handle it)
And I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
(I'm not apologizing)
It's human nature (It's human nature)
(Would it sound better if I were a man?)
And I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
(You're the one with the problem)
I'm not your bitch
Don't hang your shit on me (It's human nature)
(Why don't you just deal with it)
'Cause I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
(Would you like me better if I was?)
It's human nature (It's human nature)
(We all feel the same way)
And I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
(I have no regrets)
I'm not your bitch
Don't hang your shit on me (It's human nature)
(Just look in the mirror)
And I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
(I don't have to justify anything)
It's human nature (It's human nature)
(I'm just like you)
And I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
(Why should I be?)
I'm not your bitch
Don't hang your shit on me (It's human nature)
(Deal with it)


FORBIDDEN LOVE

In your eyes (In your eyes)

LOVE TRIED TO WELCOME ME
Written by Madonna and Dave -Jam- Hall

These are my hands
But what can they give me
These are my eyes
But they cannot see
These are my arms
But they don't know tenderness
And I must confess
That I am usually drawn to sadness
And loneliness has never been a stranger
To me but
CHORUS:
Love tried to welcome me
But my soul drew back
Guilty of lust and sin
Love tried to take me in
These are my lips
But they whisper sorrow
This is my voice
But it's telling lies
I know how to laugh
But I don't know happiness
And I must confess
Instead of spring it's always winter
And my heart has always been
A lonely hunter but still
CHORUS:
Love tried to welcome me
But my soul drew back
I was covered with dust and sin
Love tried to take me in
Love tried to break me
And I must confess
Instead of spring it's always winter
And my heart has always been
A lonely hunter but still
CHORUS:
Love tried to welcome me
But my soul drew back
I was guilty of lust and sin
Love tried to take me in
Love tried to welcome me
But my soul drew back
Covered with dust and sin
Love tried to take me in
Love tried to break me (love tried to welcome me)
But my soul drew back (guilty of lust and sin)
Covered with dust, covered with sorrow (love tried to take me in)
Covered
Still
Love tried to welcome me
But my soul drew back
Guilty of lust and sin
Love tried to take me in
Love tried to break me (love tried to welcome me)
Love tried to welcome me (but my soul drew back)
But my soul drew back (guilty of lust and sin)
Covered with sorrow (love tried to take me in)
Love tried to welcome me


SANCTUARY
Written by Madonna, Dallas Austin, Anne Preven, Scott Cutler and Herbie Hancock

Surely whoever speaks to me in the right voice
Him or her I shall follow
Who needs the sun
When the rain's so full of life
Who needs the sky
It's here in your arms
I want to be buried
You are
My sanctuary
Who needs the sun
When the rain's so full of life
Who needs the sky
When the ground's open wide
It's here in your arms
I want to be buried
You are
My sanctuary
Who needs a smile
When a tear's so full of love
Who needs a home
With the stars up above
It's here in your heart
I want to be carried
You are
My sanctuary
Who needs the light
With the darkness in your eyes
Who needs to sleep
With the stars in the sky
It's here in your soul
I want to be married
You are
My sanctuary
And the earth was void and empty
And darkness was upon the face of the earth
Is all of this pain so necessary?
You
Are
My sanctuary
Surely whoever speaks to me in the right voice
Him or her I shall follow
As the water follows the moon
Silently
(Who needs the sun)
With fluid steps
(Who needs the sky)
Around the globe
( Who needs to sleep)
I hear your voice
You are (you are)
My sanctuary
You are (you are)
You are (you are)
My sanctuary


BEDTIME STORY
Written by Nellee Hooper, Björk and Marius DeVries
BEDTIME STORIES ALBUM 1994, GHV2 COMPILATION ALBUM 2001

Today is the last day
That I'm using words
They've gone out
Lost their meaning
Don't function anymore
Let's
Let's
Let's get unconscious honey
Let's get unconscious honey
Today is the last day
That I'm using words
They've gone out
Lost their meaning
Don't function anymore
Traveling
Leaving logic and reason
Traveling
To the arms of unconsciousness
Traveling
Leaving logic and reason
Traveling
To the arms of unconsciousness
CHORUS:
Let's get unconscious honey
Let's get unconscious
Let's get unconscious honey
Let's get unconscious
Words are useless
Especially sentences
They don't stand for anything
How could they explain how I feel
Traveling, traveling
I'm traveling
Traveling, traveling
Leaving logic and reason
Traveling, traveling
I'm gonna relax
Traveling, traveling
In the arms of unconsciousness
CHORUS:
Let's get unconscious honey
Let's get unconscious
Let's get unconscious honey
Let's get unconscious
And inside
We're all still wet
Longing and yearning
How can I explain how I feel
CHORUS:
Let's get unconscious honey
Let's get unconscious
Let's get unconscious honey
Let's get unconscious
Traveling, traveling
Traveling, traveling
Traveling, traveling
Traveling, traveling
In the arms of unconsciousness
And all that you've ever learned
Try to forget
I'll never explain again


TAKE A BOW (with Babyface)
Written by Babyface and Madonna
BEDTIME STORIES ALBUM 1994, SOMETHING TO REMEMBER COMPILATION ALBUM 1995, GHV2 COMPILATION ALBUM 2001, CELEBRATION COMPILATION ALBUM 2009

Take a bow
The night is over
This masquerade is getting older
Light are low
The curtains down
There's no one here
(There's no one here, there's no one in the crowd)
Say your lines
But do you feel them
Do you mean what you say
When there's no one around (no one around)
Watching you, watching me
One lonely star
(One lonely star, you don't know who you are)
CHORUS:
I've always been in love with you (always with you)
I guess you've always known it's true (you know it's true)
You took my love for granted, why oh why (why oh why)
The show is over, say good-bye
Say good-bye (bye bye)
Say good-bye
Make them laugh
It comes so easy
When you get to the part
Where you're breaking my heart (breaking my heart)
Hide behind your smile
All the world loves a clown
(Just make 'em smile, the whole world loves a clown)
Wish you well
I cannot stay
You deserve an award
For the role that you played (role that you played)
No more masquerade
You're one lonely star
(One lonely star and you don't know who you are)
CHORUS:
I've always been in love with you (always with you)
I guess you've always known it's true (you know it's true)
You took my love for granted, why oh why (why oh why)
The show is over, say good-bye
I've always been in love with you (always with you)
I guess you've always known it's true (you know it's true)
You took my love for granted, why oh why (why oh why)
The show is over, say good-bye
Say good-bye (bye bye)
Say good-bye
All the world is a stage (world is a stage)
And everyone has their part (has their part)
But how was I to know
Which way the story'd go
How was I to know you'd break
You'd break, you'd break, you'd break
You'd break my heart
CHORUS:
I've always been in love with you (I've always been in love with you)
Guess you've always known
You took my love for granted, why oh why (why oh why)
The show is over, say good-bye
I've always been in love with you (always with you)
I guess you've always known it's true (you know it's true)
You took my love for granted, why oh why (why oh why)
The show is over, say good-bye
Say good-bye (bye bye)
Say good-bye
Say good-bye...

I WANT YOU (with Massive Attack)
Written by Leon Ware and T-Boy Ross

CHORUS:
I want you
The right way
I want you
But I want you to want me too
Want you to want me baby
Just like I want you
Da da da da da da da
I'll give you all the love
I want in return
But half a love
Is all I feel
Sweet darling
It's too bad
It's just too sad
You don't want me no more
But I'm gonna change your mind
Some way, somehow
CHORUS:
I want you
The right way
I want you
But I want you to want me too
Want you to want me baby
Just like I want you
Da da da da da da da
One way love
Is just a fantasy
To share is precious
Pure and fair
Don't play with something
You should cherish for life
Oh baby
Don't you wanna care
Ain't it lonely out there
CHORUS:
I want you
The right way
I want you
But I want you to want me too
Want you to want me baby
Just like I want you
I want you
The right way
I want you
But I want you to want me too
Want me baby
Just like I want you
Da da da da da da da
I want you
The right way
Want me baby
Don't play with something
You should cherish for life


I'LL REMEMBER
Written by Patrick Leonard, Madonna and Richard Page
WITH HONORS FILM SOUNDTRACK 1994, SOMETHING TO REMEMBER COMPILATION ALBUM 1995

Say good-bye
To not knowing when
The truth in my whole life began
Say good-bye
To not knowing how to cry
You taught me that
CHORUS:
And I'll remember
The strength that you gave me
Now that I'm standing on my own
I'll remember
The way that you saved me
I'll remember
Inside
I was a child
That could not mend a broken wing
Outside
I looked for a way
To teach my heart to sing
CHORUS:
And I'll remember
The love that you gave me
Now that I'm standing on my own
I'll remember
The way that you changed me
I'll remember
I learned
To let go
Of the illusion that we can possess
I learned
To let go
I travel in stillness
And I'll remember
Happiness
I'll remember
(I'll remember)
(I'll remember)
CHORUS:
And I'll remember
The love that you gave me
Now that I'm standing on my own
I'll remember
The way that you changed me
I'll remember (I'll remember)
No I've never been afraid to cry
Now I finally have a reason why
I'll remember (I'll remember)
No I've never been afraid to cry
And I finally have a reason why
I'll remember (I'll remember)
No I've never been afraid to cry
And I finally have a reason why
I'll remember (I'll remember)
No I've never been afraid to cry
And I finally have a reason why
I'll remember (I'll remember)


YOU'LL SEE
Written by Madonna and David Foster

You think that I can't live
Without your love
You'll see
You think I can't go on
Another day
You think I have nothing
Without you by my side
You'll see
Somehow, some way
You think that I can never
Laugh again
You'll see
You think that you destroyed
My faith in love
You think after all you've done
I'll never find my way back home
You'll see
Somehow, someday
CHORUS:
All by myself
I don't need anyone at all
I know I'll survive
I know I'll stay alive
All on my own
I don't need anyone this time
It will be mine
No one can take it from me
You'll see
You think that you are strong
But you are weak
You'll see
It takes more strength to cry
Admit defeat
I have truth on my side
You only have deceit
You'll see
Somehow, someday
CHORUS:
All by myself
I don't need anyone at all
I know I'll survive
I know I'll stay alive
I'll stand on my own
I won't need anyone this time
It will be mine
No one can take it from me
You'll see
You'll see
You'll see
You'll see, mmm mmm


THIS USED TO BE MY PLAYGROUND
Written by Madonna and Shep Pettibone

This used to be my playground
This used to be my childhood dream
This used to be the place I ran to
Whenever I was in need
Of a friend
Why did it have to end
And why do they always say
Don't look back
Keep your head held high
Don't ask them why
Because
Life is short
And before you know
You're feeling old
And your heart is breaking
Don't hold on to the past
Well that's too much to ask
This used to be my playground
This used to be my childhood dream
This used to be the place I ran to
Whenever I was in need
Of a friend
Why did it have to end
And why do they always say
Verses from long & movie version:
Live and learn
Well the years they flew
And we never knew
We were foolish then
We would never tire
And that little fire
Is still alive in me
It will never go away
Can't say goodbye to yesterday
This used to be my playground
This used to be my childhood dream
This used to be the place I ran to
Whenever I was in need
Of a friend
Why did it have to end
And why do they always say
No regrets
But I wish that you
Were here with me
Well then there's hope yet
I can see your face
In our secret place
You're not just a memory
Say goodbye to yesterday
Those are words I'll never say
This used to be my playground
This used to be our pride and joy
This used to be the place we ran to
That no one in the world could dare destroy
Verse from single & movie version:
This used to be our playground
This used to be our childhood dream
This used to be the place we ran to
I wish you were standing here with me
Verse from movie version:
This used to be our playground
This used to be our great escape
This used to be the place we ran to
This used to be our secret hiding place
This used to be our playground
This used to be our childhood dream
This used to be the place we ran to
The best things in life are always free
Wishing you were here with me


ONE MORE CHANCE
Written by Madonna and David Foster

I turned around
Too late
To see the fallen star
I fell asleep
And never saw the sun go down
I took your love for granted
Thought luck was always on my side
I turned around too late
And you were gone
CHORUS:
So give me one more chance
Darlin' if you care for me
Let me win your love
'Cause you were always there for me
If you care for me
Be there for me
I like to play the queen of hearts
And never thought I'd lose
I rolled the dice
But never showed my hand
I planned it out so perfectly
So you'd never leave a girl like me
I was a fool
But now I understand
CHORUS:
So give me one more chance
Darlin' if you care for me
Let me win your love
'Cause you were always there for me
If you care for me
Be there for me
Here is the law of the land
You play with fire and you'll get burned
Here is the lesson I've learned
That you don't know what you've got til it's gone
CHORUS:
So give me one more chance
Darlin' if you care for me
Let me win your love
'Cause you were always there for me
Gimme one more chance
Tell me that it's not too late
Let me win your love
Darlin' please don't hesitate
If you care for me
Be there for me
Give me
One more chance

VERÁS (SPANISH VERSION OF YOU'LL SEE)
Written by Madonna and David Foster

Tu piensas que yo no podré vivir sin ti
Tu piensas no podrá sobrevivir
Que nada me queda, si no estás junto a mi
Verás que no es así
Tu piensas que jamás seré feliz sin ti
Que destruiste al fin mi corazón
Que no voy a descubrir la forma de volver atrás
Sin ti, yo sé que si

Ya lo verás
No necesito a nadie más
Podré resistir
Voy a poder seguir

Yo sé que así será, podré salir
Voy a saltar sin red, y no voy a caer
Será mejor sin ti
CHORUS:
Ya lo verás
No necesito a nadie más
Podré resistir
Voy a poder seguir
Lo haré por mi
Será mi gloria personal
Nadie, ni tu, me la podrá quitar

OH WHAT A CIRCUS (by Madonna and Antonio Banderas)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Oh what a circus, oh what a show
Argentina has gone to town
Over the death of an actress called Eva Peron
We've all gone crazy
Mourning all day and mourning all night
Falling over ourselves to get all of the misery right
Oh what an exit, that's how to go
When they're ringing your curtain down
Demand to be buried like Eva Peron
It's quite a sunset
And good for the country in a roundabout way
We've made the front page of all the world's papers today
But who is this Santa Evita
Why all this howling hysterical sorrow
What kind of goddess has lived among us
How will we ever get by without her
She had her moments, she had some style
The best show in town was the crowd
Outside the Casa Rosada crying Eva Peron
But that's all gone now
As soon as the smoke from the funeral clears
We're all going to see and how she did nothing for years
Salve regina mater misericordiae
Vita dulcedo et spes nostra
Salve salve regina
Ad te clamamus exules filii Eva
Ad te suspiramus gementes et flentes
O clemens o pia
You let down your people Evita
You were supposed to have been immortal
That's all they wanted
Not much to ask for
But in the end you could not deliver
Sing you fools but you got it wrong
Enjoy your prayers because you haven't got long
Your queen is dead, your king is through
She's not coming back to you
Show business kept us all alive
Since 17 October 1945
But the star has gone the glamour's worn thin
That's a pretty bad state for a state to be in
Instead of government we had a stage
Instead of ideas, a prima donna's rage
Instead of help we were given a crowd
She didn't say much, but she said it loud
Sing you fools, but you got it wrong
Enjoy your prayers because you haven't got long
Your queen is dead, your king is through
She's not coming back to you
Salve regina mater misericordiae
Vita dulcedo et spes nostra
Salve salve regina Peron
Ad te clamamus exules filii Eva
Ad te suspiramus gementes et flentes
O clemens o pia
Don't cry for me Argentina
For I am ordinary, unimportant
And undeserving of such attention
Unless we all are, I think we all are
So share my glory, so share my coffin
So share my glory, so share my coffin
It's our funeral too


ON THIS NIGHT OF A THOUSAND STARS (by Antonio Banderas and Jimmy Nail)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Now Eva Peron had every disadvantage
You need if you're gonna succeed
No money, no cash, no father, no bright lights
There was nowhere she'd been at the age of fifteen
As this tango singer found out
Agustin Magaldi who has the distinction of being
the first man to be of use to Eva Duarte
On this night of a thousand stars
Let me take you to heaven's door
Where the music of love's guitars
Plays for evermore
In the glow of those twinkling lights
We shall love through eternity
On this night in a million nights
Fly away with me
I never dreamed that a kiss could be as sweet as this
Now I know that it can
I used to wander alone without a love of my own
I was a desperate man
But all my grief disappeared and all the sorrow I feared
Wasn't there anymore
On that magical day when you first came my way
Mi Amor
On this night
On this night
On this night of a thousand stars
Let me take you to heaven's door
Where the music of love's guitars
Plays for evermore


EVA AND MAGALDI/EVA BEWARE OF THE CITY (by Madonna, Jimmy Nail, Antonio Banderas and Julian Littman)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

To think that a man as famous as you are
Could love a poor little nothing like me
I wanna be a part of B.A. -Buenos Aires- Big Apple
She wants to be a part of B.A. -Buenos Aires- Big Apple
Just listen to that, they're onto you Magaldi
I'd get out while you can
It's happened at last, I'm starting to get started
I'm moving out with my man
Now Eva don't get carried away
Monotony past, suburbia departed
Who could ever be fond of the back of beyond
Don't hear words that I didn't say
What's that? You'd desert the girl you love?
The girl I love?
What are you talking about?
She really brightened up your out of town engagement
She gave you all she had she wasn't in your contract
You must be quite relieved that no-one's told the papers
So far!
I wanna be a part of B.A. -Buenos Aires- Big Apple
Would I have done what I did if I hadn't thought
If I hadn't known, we would stay together?
Seems to me there's no point in resisting
She's made up her mind you've no choice
Why don't you be the man who discovered her?
You'll never be remembered for your voice
The city can be paradise for those who have the cash
The class and the connections what you need to make a splash
The likes of you get swept up in the morning with the trash
If you were rich or middle class...
Screw the middle classes! I will never accept them!
My father's other family were middle class and we were kept out of
Sight, hidden from view, at his funeral!
Do all your one night stands give you this trouble?
Eva beware of the city
It's hungry and cold, can't be controlled, it is mad
Those who are fools are swallowed up whole
And those who are not become
What they should not become
Changed in short they go bad
Bad is good for me, I'm bored, so clean and so ignored
I've only been predictable, respectable!
Birds fly out of here so why oh why oh why the hell can't I
I only want variety of society!
I wanna be a part of B.A. -Buenos Aires- Big Apple!
She wants to be a part of B.A. -Buenos Aires- Big Apple!
Five years from now I shall come back
And finally say, you have your way, come to town
But you'll look at me with a foreigner's eyes
The magical city, a younger girl's city, a fantasy long since put down
All you've done to me was that a young girl's fantasy?
I played your city games alright didn't I?
I already know what cooks, how the dirty city feels and looks
I tasted it last night didn't I?
I'm gonna be a part of B.A. -Buenos Aires- Big Apple!
She's gonna to be a part of B.A. -Buenos Aires- Big Apple!
Eva beware your ambition
It's hungry and cold, can't be controlled, will run wild
This in a man is danger enough
But you are a woman, not even a woman,
not very much more than a child and whatever you say
I'll not steal you away!


BUENOS AIRES (by Madonna)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

What's new Buenos Aires?
I'm new!
I want to say I'm just a little stuck on you
You'll be on me too!
I get out here Buenos Aires
Stand back
You ought to know whatcha gonna get in me
Just a little touch of star quality!
Fill me up with your heat, with your noise
With your dirt, overdo me
Let me dance to your beat, make it loud
Let it hurt, run it through me
Don't hold back you are certain to impress
Tell the driver this is where I'm staying
Hello Buenos Aires!
Get this
Just look at me, dressed up somewhere to go
We'll put on a show!
Take me in at your flood, give me speed
Give me lights, set me humming
Shoot me up with your blood
Wine me up with your nights, watch me coming
All I want is a whole lot of excess
Tell the singer this is where I'm playing
Stand back Buenos Aires!
Because you ought to know whatcha gonna get in me
Just a little touch of star quality!
And if ever I go too far
It's because of the things you are
Beautiful town I love you
And if I need a moment's rest
Give your lover the very best
Real eiderdown and silence
You're a tramp, you're a treat
You will shine to the death, you are shoddy
But you're flesh, you are meat
You shall have every breath in my body
Put me down for a lifetime of success
Give me credit I'll find ways of paying
Rio de la Plata!
Florida! Corrientes! Nueve de Julio!
All I want to know!
Stand back Buenos Aires!
Because you oughta know whatcha gonna get in me
Just a little touch of
Just a little touch of
Just a little touch of star quality!


ANOTHER SUITCASE IN ANOTHER HALL (by Madonna)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

I don't expect my love affairs to last for long
Never fool myself that my dreams will come true
Being used to trouble I anticipate it
But all the same I hate it wouldn't you?
CHORUS:
So what happens now?
(Another suitcase in another hall)
So what happens now?
(Take your picture off another wall)
Where am I going to?
(You'll get by you always have before)
Where am I going to?
Time and time again I've said that I don't care
That I'm immune to gloom, that I'm hard through and through
But every time it matters all my words desert me
So anyone can hurt me and they do
CHORUS:
So what happens now?
(Another suitcase in another hall)
So what happens now?
(Take your picture off another wall)
Where am I going to?
(You'll get by you always have before)
Where am I going to?
Call in three months time and I'll be fine I know
Well maybe not that fine but I'll survive anyhow
I won't recall the names and places of each sad occasion
But that's no consolation here and now
CHORUS:
So what happens now?
(Another suitcase in another hall)
So what happens now?
(Take your picture off another wall)
Where am I going to?
(You'll get by you always have before)
Where am I going to?
Don't ask anymore


GOODNIGHT AND THANK YOU (by Madonna and Antonio Banderas)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Goodnight and thank you Huevo
She's in every magazine, been photographed, seen
She is known
We don't like to rush, but your case has been packed
If she's missed anything, you could give her a ring
But she won't always answer the phone
Oh but it's sad when a love affair dies
But we have pretended enough
It's best that we stop fooling ourselves
Which means...
There is noone, noone at all
Never has been and never will be a lover
Male or female
Who hasn't an eye on
In fact they rely on
Tricks they can try on their partner
They're hoping their lover will help them or keep them
Support them, promote them
Don't blame them
You're the same
Goodnight and thank you Emilio
You've completed your task, what more can we ask of you now?
Please sign the book on your way out the door
That will be all, if she needs you she'll call
But I don't think that's likely somehow
Oh but it's sad when a love affair dies
But when we were hot, we were hot
I know you'll look back on the good times we've shared
Which means...
There is noone, noone at all
Never has been and never will be a lover
Male or female
Who hasn't an eye on
In fact they rely on
Tricks they can try on their partner
They're hoping their lover will help them or keep them
Support them, promote them
Don't blame her
You're the same
There is no soap, no soap like Zaz
No detergent, lotion or oil with such power in the shower
It's the mother and father of luxury lather
The talk of the bath
The great ointment
One little frolic
With new Zaz carbolic
You're scented
You'll be sent
Goodnight and thank you Senor Gabon
We are grateful you found her a spot on the sound radio
We'll think of you every time she's on the air
We'd love you to stay
But you'd be in the way
So do up your trousers and go
Oh but it's sad when a love affair dies
The decline into silence and doubt
Our passion was just too intense to survive
Which means...
This is a club I should never have joined
Someone has made us look fools
Argentine men call the sexual shots
Someone has altered the rules
Fame on the wireless as far as it goes
Is all very well, but every girl knows
She needs a man she can monopolize
With fingers in dozens of different pies
Oh but it's sad when a love affair dies


THE LADY'S GOT POTENTIAL (by Antonio Banderas)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

In June of 43 there was a military coup
Behind it was a gang called the G.O.U.
Who did not feel the need to be elected
They had themselves a party at the point of a gun
They were slightly to the right of Attila the Hun
A bomb or two and very few objected
Just one shell and governments fall like flies, ka-pow, die
They stubble and fall, bye bye
Backs to the wall, aim high
We're having a ball
The tank and bullet rule as democracy dies
The lady's got potential
She was setting her sights
Of making it in movies
With her name in lights
The greatest social climber
Since Cinderella
Okay she couldn't act
But she had the right friends
And we all know a career depends
On knowing the right fella to be stellar
Just one shell and governments lose their nerve, ka-pow, die
They stumble and fall, bye, bye
Backs to the wall, aim high
We're having a ball
That's how we get the government we deserve
Now the man behind the president calling the shots
Involved so discreetly in a lot of their plots
was Colonel Juan Peron would-be dictator
He began in the army out in Italy so
Saw Mussolini's rise from the very front row
I reckon he'd do likewise sooner or later
Just one blast and the tear gas falls like rain, ka-pow, die
They haven't a chance, bye bye
The terrorists advance
But one guy doesn't dirty his hands
Peron was biding time out in the slow lane
Suddenly a earthquake hit the town of San Juan, ka-pow, die
They stubble and fall, bye bye
Keep away from the wall
But one guy was having a ball
The tragedy a golden chance for Peron
He organized a concert with incredible flair
In aid of all the victims, such a grand affair
Politicians, actors, stars of every flavor
It was January 22, 1944
A night to remember, yeah that's for sure
For that's the night that Peron first met Eva
For that's the night that Peron first met Eva 


CHARITY CONCERT/THE ART OF THE POSSIBLE (by Madonna, Jimmy Nail, Jonathan Pryce and Antonio Banderas)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

On this night
On this night
On this night of a thousand stars
Let me take you to heaven's door
Where the music of love's guitars
Plays forever more
Magaldi?
Eva Duarte?
Your act hasn't changed much
Neither has yours
I stand here as a servant of the people
As we come together for a marvelous cause
You've shown by your presence, your deeds, and applause
What the people can do true power is yours not the government's
Unless it represents the people
One always picks the easy fight
One praises fools
One smothers light
One shifts from left to right
Politics, the art of the possible


I'D BE SURPRISINGLY GOOD FOR YOU (by Madonna and Jonathan Pryce)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Colonel Peron
Eva Duarte
I've heard so much about you!
I'm amazed for I'm only an actress (a soldier)
Nothing to shout about (One of the thousands)
Only a girl on the edge (Defending the country he loves)
But when you act, the things you do affect us all
But when you act, you take us away from the squalor of the real world
Are you here on your own?
Yes, Oh yes
So am I
What a fortunate coincidence
Maybe you're my reward for my efforts here tonight
It seems crazy but you must believe
There's nothing calculated, nothing planned
Please forgive me if I seem naive
I would never want to force your hand
But please understand
I'd be good for you
I don't always rush in like this
Twenty seconds after saying hello
Telling strangers I'm too good to miss
If I'm wrong I hope you'll tell me so
But you really should know
I'd be good for you
I'd be surprisingly good for you
I won't go on if I'm boring you
But do you understand my point of view
Do you like what you hear, what you see, and would you be
Good for me too?
I'm not talking of a hurried night
A frantic tumble then a shy goodbye
Creeping home before it gets too light
That's not the reason that I caught your eye
Which has to imply
I'd be good for you
I'd be surprisingly good for you
Please go on you enthrall me
I can understand you perfectly
And I like what I hear, what I see, and knowing me
I would be good for you too
I'm not talking of a hurried night
A frantic tumble then a shy goodbye
Creeping home before it gets too light
That's not the reason that I caught your eye
Which has to imply
I'd be good for you
I'd be surprisingly good for you


HELLO AND GOODBYE (by Madonna, Jonathan Pryce and Andrea Corr)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Hello and goodbye
I've just unemployed you
You can go back to school
You've had a good run
I'm sure he enjoyed you
Don't act sad or surprised let's be friends civilized
Come on little one! Don't sit there like a dummy!
The day you knew would arrive is here you'll survive
So move, funny face!
I like your conversation
You've a catchy turn of phrase
Your obviously going through some adolescent phase
So what happens now?
So what happens now?
Where am I going to?
You'll get by you always have before
Where am I going to?
Don't ask anymore

PERON'S LATEST FLAME (by Madonna and Antonio Banderas)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

At the watering-holes of the well-to-do
I detect a resistance to
Precisely!
Our heroine's style
We're glad you noticed
The shooting sticks of the upper class
Give her an inch
Aren't supporting a single ass
That would rise for the girl
She'll take a mile
Such a shame she wandered into our enclosure
How unfortunate this person has forced us to be blunt
No we wouldn't mind seeing her at Harrod's
But behind the jewelry counter
Not in front
Could there be
In our fighting corps
A lack of enthusiasm for
Exactly!
Peron's latest flame?
You said it brother
Should you wish to cause great distress
In the tidiest officer's mess
Just mention her name
That isn't funny!
Peron is a fool, breaking every taboo
Installing the girl in the army H.Q.
And she's an actress!
The last straw
Her only good parts are between her thighs
She should stare at the ceiling, not reach for the skies
Or she could be his last whore
The evidence suggests
She has other interests
If it's her who's using him
He's exceptionally dim
Bitch! Dangerous Jade!
We have allowed ourselves to slip
We have completely lost our grip
We have declined to an all-time low
Tarts have become the set to know
I'm only a radio star with just one weekly show
But speaking as one of the people I want you to know
We are tired of the decline of
Argentina with no sign of
A government able to give us the things we deserve
It's no crime for officers to do as they please
As long as they're discreet and keep clear of disease
We ignore, we disregard
But once they allow a bit on the side
To move to the center where she's not qualified
We are forced to mark his card
She should get into her head
She should not get out of bed
She should know that she's not paid
To be loud but to be laid
Slut! Dangerous Jade!
This has really been your year, Miss Duarte
Tell us where you go from here, Miss Duarte
Which are the roles that you yearn to play
Whom did you sleep, dine with yesterday?
Acting is limiting, the line's not mine
That's no help to the Argentine
Can we assume then that you'll quit?
Is this because of your involvement with Colonel Peron?
Goodnight and thank you
She won't be kept happy by her nights on the tiles
She says it's his body but she's after his files
So get back onto the street!
She should get into her head
She should not get out of bed
She should know that she's not paid
To be loud but to be laid
The evidence suggests
She has other interests
If it's her who's using him
He's exceptionally dim
Things have reached a pretty pass
When someone pretty lower class
Graceless and vulgar, uninspired
Can be accepted and admired

A NEW ARGENTINA (by Madonna, Jonathan Pryce and Antonio Banderas)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Dice are rolling, the knives are out
Would be presidents are all around
I don't say they mean harm but they'd each give an arm
To see us six feet under ground
It doesn't matter what those morons say
Our nation's leaders are a feeble crew
There's only twenty of them anyway
What is twenty next to millions who
Are looking to you?
All you have to do is sit and wait
Keeping out of everybody's way
We'll, you'll be handed power on a plate
When the ones who matter have their say
And with chaos installed
You can reluctantly agree to be called
There again we could be foolish
Not to quit while we're ahead
For distance lends enchantment
And that is why
All exiles are distinguished
More important they're not dead
I could find job satisfaction
In Paraguay
This is crazy defeatist talk
Why commit political suicide?
There's no risk, there's no call
For any action at all
When you have unions on your side
A new Argentina!
The chains of the masses untied!
A new Argentina!
The voice of the people cannot be denied!
There is only one man who can lead any workers' regime
He lives for your problems
He shares your ideals and your dreams
He supports you for he loves you,
Understands you, is one of you
If not
How could he love me?
A new Argentina!
The workers' battle song!
A new Argentina!
The voice of the people rings out loud and long!
Now I am a worker I've suffered the way that you do
I've been unemployed and I've starved and I've hated it too
But I found my salvation in Peron, may the nation
Let him save them as he saved me
A new Argentina!
A new age about to begin!
A new Argentina!
We face the world together and no dissent within
There again we could be foolish
Not to quit while were ahead
I can see us many miles away
Inactive, sipping cocktails on a terrace,
Taking breakfast in bed, sleeping easy,
Doing nothing, it's attractive.
Don't think I don't think like you
I often get those nightmares too
They always take some swallowing
Sometimes it's very difficult to keep momentum if
It's you that you are following
Don't close doors
Keep an escape clause
Because we might lose
The Big Apple
But would I have done, what I did
If I hadn't thought, if I hadn't known
We would take the country?
Peron has resigned from the army and this we avow
The descamisados are those he is marching with now!
He supports you for he loves you,
Understands you, is one of you
If not
How could he love me?
A new Argentina!
The chains of the masses untied!
A new Argentina!
The voice of the people cannot be, and must not be, denied!
How annoying that they have to fight elections for their cause
The inconvenience, having to get a majority.
If normal methods of persuasion fail to win them applause
There are other ways of establishing authority
A new Argentina!
The chains of the masses untied!
A new Argentina!
The voice of the people cannot be, and will not be, and must not be, denied!


DISC II

ON THE BALCONY OF THE CASA ROSADA I (by Jonathan Pryce)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

People of Argentina!
Your newly elected President Juan Peron!
Argentinos! Argentinos!
We are all workers now!
Fighting against our common enemies
Poverty, social injustice, foreign domination of our industries!
Reaching for our common goals
Our independence, our dignity, our pride!
Let the world know that our great nation is awakening
and that its heart beats in the humble bodies of Juan Peron
And his wife, the first lady of Argentina,
Eva Duarte de Peron!


DON'T CRY FOR ME ARGENTINA (by Madonna)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice
EVITA FILM SOUNDTRACK ALBUM 1996, GHV2 COMPILATION ALBUM 2001

It won't be easy
You'll think it's strange
When I try to explain how I feel
That I still need your love after all that I've done
You won't believe me
All you will see is a girl you once knew
Although she's dressed up to the nines
At sixes and sevens with you
I had to let it happen
I had to change
Couldn't stay all my life down at hill
Looking out of the window
Staying out of the sun
So I chose freedom
Running around, trying everything new
But nothing impressed me at all
I never expected it to
CHORUS:
Don't cry for me Argentina
The truth is I never left you
All through my wild days
My mad existence
I kept my promise
Don't keep your distance
And as for fortune
And as for fame
I never invited them in
Though it seemed to the world they were all I desired
They are illusions
They're not the solutions they promise to be
The answer was here all the time
I love you and hope you love me
Don't cry for me Argentina
CHORUS:
Don't cry for me Argentina
The truth is I never left you
All through my wild days
My mad existence
I kept my promise
Don't keep your distance
Have I said too much?
There's nothing more I can think of to say to you
But all you have to do is look at me to know
That every word is true


ON THE BALCONY OF THE CASA ROSADA II (by Madonna)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Just listen to that, the voice of Argentina
We are adored, we are loved
Statesmanship is more than entertaining peasants
We shall see little man
I am only a simple woman
Who lives to serve Peron in his noble crusade to rescue his people!
I was once as you are now!
And I promise you this... we will take the riches
From the oligarchs only for you -for all of you!
And one day you too will inherit these treasures! Descamisados!
When they fire those cannons, when the crowds sing of glory,
It is not just for Peron, but for all of us!
All of us!
Things have reached a pretty pass
When someone pretty lower class
Can be accepted and admired
But our privileged class is dead!
Look who they are calling for now!


HIGH FLYING, ADORED (by Madonna and Antonio Banderas)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

High flying, adored
So young, the instant queen
A rich beautiful thing of all the talents
A cross between
A Fantasy of the bedroom and a saint
You were just a back street girl
Hustling and fighting
Scratching and biting
High flying, adored
Did you believe in your wildest moments
All this would be yours
That you'd become the lady of them all?
Were there stars in your eyes
When you crawled in at night
From the bars, from the sidewalks
From the gutter theatrical?
Don't look down, it's a long, long way to fall
High flying, adored
What happens now, where do you go from here?
For someone on top of the world
The view is not exactly clear
A shame you did it all at twenty-six
There are no mysteries now
Nothing can thrill you
No-one fulfill you
High flying, adored
I hope you come to terms with boredom
So famous, so easily, so soon, is not the wisest thing to be
You won't care if they love you, it's been done before
You'll despair if they hate you
You'll be drained of all energy
All the young who've made it would agree
High flying, adored, that's good to hear, but unimportant
My story's quite usual
Local girl makes good, weds famous man
I was stuck in the right place at the perfect time
Filled a gap I was lucky
But one thing I'll say for me
No one else can fill it like I can


RAINBOW HIGH (by Madonna)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

There again I've more to do
Than simply get the message through
I haven't started!
Let's get this show on the road
Let's make it obvious
Peron is off and rolling
Eyes! Hair! Mouth! Figure!
Dress! Voice! Style! Movement!
Hands! Magic! Rings! Glamour!
Face! Diamonds! Excitement! Image!
I came from the people
They need to adore me
So Christian Dior me
From my head to my toes
I need to be dazzling
I want to be Rainbow High!
They must have excitement
And so must I
Eyes! Hair! Mouth! Figure!
Dress! Voice! Style! Movement!
I'm their product
It's vital you sell me
So Machiavell-me
Make an Argentine Rose!
I need to be thrilling
I want to be Rainbow High!
They need their escape
And so do I
Eyes! Hair! Mouth! Figure!
Dress! Voice! Style! Movement!
Hands! Magic! Rings! Glamour!
Face! Diamonds! Excitement! Image!
All my descamisados expect me to outshine the enemy
I won't disappoint them!
I'm their savior!
That's what they call me
So Lauren Bacall me
Anything goes
To make me fantastic
I have to be Rainbow High
In magical colors
You're not decorating a girl for a night on the town!
And I'm not a second-rate queen getting kicks with a crown!
Next stop will be Europe!
The Rainbow's gonna tour
Dressed up, somewhere to go
We'll put on a show!
Look out, mighty Europe!
Because you oughta know whatcha gonna get in me
Just a little touch of
Just a little touch of
Argentina's brand of Star quality!


RAINBOW TOUR (by Madonna, Antonio Banderas, Gary Brooker, Peter Polycarpou, Jonathan Pryce and John Gower)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

People of Europe! I send you the Rainbow of Argentina!
Spain has fallen to the charms of Evita
She can do what she likes it doesn't matter much
She's our Lady of the New World with the golden touch
She filled a bull-ring forty-five thousand seater
But if you're prettier than General Franco that's not hard
Franco's reign in Spain should see out the forties
So you've just acquired an ally who
Looks as secure in his job as you
But more important, current political thought is
Your wife's a phenomenal asset
Your trump card
Let's hear it for the Rainbow Tour
It's been an incredible success
We weren't quite sure, we had a few doubts
Will Evita win through?
But the answer is yes!
There you are, I told you so
Makes no difference where she goes
The whole world over just the same
Just listen to them call her name
And who would underestimate the actress now?
Now I don't like to spoil a wonderful story
But the news from Rome isn't quite as good
She hasn't gone down like we thought she would
Italy's unconvinced by Argentine glory
They equate Peron with Mussolini
Can't think why
Did you hear that?
They called me a whore!
They actually called me a whore!
But Signora Peron
It's an easy mistake
I'm still called an admiral yet I gave up the sea long ago
More bad news from Rome she met with the Pope
She only got a rosary, a kindly word
I wouldn't say the Holy Father gave her the bird
But Papal decorations never a hope
She still looked the part at St. Peter's
Caught the eye
Let's hear it for the Rainbow Tour
It's been an incredible success
We weren't quite sure, we had a few doubts
Would Evita win through?
But the answer is
A qualified
Yes!
Eva started well, no question, in France
Shining like the sun through the post-war haze
A beautiful reminder of the carefree days
She nearly captured the French, she sure had the chance
But she suddenly seemed to lose interest
She looked tired
Face the facts, the Rainbow's starting to fade
I don't think she'll make it to England now
It wasn't on the schedule anyhow
You'd better get out the flags and fix a parade
Some kind of coming home in triumph
Is required.
Let's hear it for the Rainbow Tour
It's been an incredible success
We weren't quite sure, we had a few doubts
Would Evita win through?
And the answer is
Yes
And no
And yes
And no
And yes... No
Let's hear it for the Rainbow Tour
It's been an incredible success
We weren't quite sure
We had a few doubts
Would Evita win through?
But the answer is yes
Yes


THE ACTRESS HASN'T LEARNED THE LINES (YOU'D LIKE TO HEAR) (by Madonna and Antonio Banderas)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Thus all fairy stories end
Only an actress would pretend
Affairs of state are her latest play
Eight shows a week two matinees
My how the worm begins to turn
When will the chorus girl ever learn?
My how the worm begins to turn
When will the chorus girl ever learn?
The chorus girl hasn't learned the lines
You'd like to hear
She won't go scrambling
Over the backs of the poor to be accepted
By making donations just large enough...
to the correct charity
She won't be president of your wonderful societies of philanthropy
Even if you asked her to be
As you should have asked her to be
The actress hasn't learned the lines you'd like to hear
She won't join your clubs, she won't dance in your halls
She won't help the hungry once a month at your tombolas
She'll simply take control as you disappear
Forgive my intrusion but fine as those sentiments sound
Little has changed for us peasants down here on the ground
I hate to sound childish, ungrateful, I don't like to moan
But do you now represent anyone's cause but your own?
Everything done will be justified by my Foundation


AND THE MONEY KEPT ROLLING IN (AND OUT) (by Antonio Banderas)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice 

And the money kept rolling in from every side
Eva's pretty hands reached out and they reached wide
Now you may feel it should have been a voluntary cause
But that's not the point my friends
When the money keeps rolling in you don't ask how
Think of all the people guaranteed a good time now
Eva's called the hungry to her opened up the doors!
Never been a fund like the Foundation Eva Peron!
Rollin' rollin' rollin', rollin' rollin' rollin'
Rollin' rollin' rollin', rollin' rollin' rollin'
Rollin' rollin' rollin', rollin' rollin' rollin'
Rollin' rollin' rollin', rollin' rollin' rollin'
Rolling on in, rolling on in
Rolling on in, rolling on in
On in
Would you like to try a college education?
Own your landlord's house, take the family on vacation?
Eva and her blessed Fund can make your dreams come true
Here's all you have to do my friends
Write your name and your dream on a card or a pad or a ticket
Throw it high in the air and should our lady pick it
She will change your way of life for a week or even two
Name me anyone who cares as much as Eva Peron!
Rollin' rollin' rollin', rollin' rollin' rollin'
Rollin' rollin' rollin', rollin' rollin' rollin'
Rollin' rollin' rollin', rollin' rollin' rollin'
Rollin' rollin' rollin', rollin' rollin' rollin'
Rolling on out, rolling on out
Rolling on out, rolling on out
On out
And the money kept rolling out in all directions
To the poor to the weak to the destitute of all complexions
Now cynics claim a little of the cash has gone astray
But that's not the point my friends
When the money keeps rolling out you don't keep books
You can tell you've done well by the happy grateful looks
Accountants only slow things down, figures get in the way
Never been a lady loved as much as Eva Peron!
Rollin' rollin' rollin', rollin' rollin' rollin'
Rollin' rollin' rollin', rollin' rollin' rollin'
Rollin' rollin' rollin', rollin' rollin' rollin'
Rollin' rollin' rollin', rollin' rollin' rollin'
Rolling on out, rolling on out
Rolling on out, rolling on out
On out
Eva!!
When the money keeps rolling out you don't keep books
You can tell you've done well by the happy grateful looks
Accountants only slow things down, figures get in the way
Never been a lady loved as much as Eva Peron!
Rollin' rollin' rollin', rollin' rollin' rollin'
Rollin' rollin' rollin', rollin' rollin' rollin'
Rollin' rollin' rollin', rollin' rollin' rollin'
Rollin' rollin' rollin', rollin' rollin' rollin'
Rollin' on out, rollin' on out
Rollin' on out, rollin' on out
Rollin' on out, rollin' on out
On out


PARTIDO FEMINISTA (by Madonna and Antonio Banderas)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Evita Peron! Partido Feminista!
Peron is everything!
He's the soul, the nerve, the hope and the
Reality of the Argentine people
We all know that there is only
One man in our movement with his own source of light
We all feed
From his light and that is Peron
Evita Peron! Partido Feminista!
And now she wants to be Vice-President
That was the over-the-top unacceptable suggestion
We didn't approve but we couldn't prevent the games
Of the wife of the president
But to give her intentions encouragement
She's out of her depth and out of the question


SHE IS A DIAMOND (by Jonathan Pryce)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

But on the other hand she's all they have
She's a diamond in their dull gray lives and that's the
Hardest kind of stone it usually survives
And when you think about it, can you recall
The last time they loved anyone at all?
She's not a bauble you can brush aside
She's been out doing what we just talked about example
Gave us back our businesses, got the English out
And when you think about it well why not do
One or two of the things we promised to?
But on the other hand she's slowing down
She's lost a little of that magic drive but I would
Not advise those critics present to derive
Any satisfaction from her fading star
She's the one who's kept us where we are
She's the one who's kept you where you are


SANTA EVITA (by Antonio Banderas)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Please, gentle Eva, will you bless a little child?
For I love you, tell Heaven I'm doing my best
I'm praying for you, even though you're already blessed
Please, mother Eva, will you look upon me as your own?
Make me special, be my angel
Be my everything, wonderful, perfect, and true
And I'll try to be exactly like you
Please, holy Eva, will you feed a hungry child?
For I love you, tell Heaven I'm doing my best
I'm praying for you, even though you're already blessed
Please, mother Eva, will you feed a hungry child?
For I love you (turn a blind eye Evita), tell Heaven I'm doing my best (turn a blind eye Evita)
I'm praying for you, even though you're already blessed
Santa Santa Evita
Madre de todos los ninos
De los tiranizados
De los descamisados
De los trabajadores
De la Argentina
Santa Santa Evita
Madre de todos los ninos
De los tiranizados
De los descamisados
De los trabajadores
De la Argentina

WALTZ FOR EVA AND CHE (by Madonna and Antonio Banderas)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Tell me before I waltz out of your life
Before turning my back on the past
Forgive my impertinent behavior
But how long do you think this pantomime can last?
Tell me before I ride off in the sunset
There's one thing I never got clear
How can you claim you're our savior
When those who oppose you
Are stepped on, or cut up, or simply disappear?
Tell me before you get onto your bus
Before joining the forgotten brigade
How can one person like me, say,
Alter the time-honored way the game is played?
Tell me before you get onto your high horse
Just what you expect me to do
I don't care what the bourgeoisie say
I'm not in business for them but to give all my descamisados
A magical moment or two
There is evil, ever around, fundamental
System of government quite incidental
So what are my chances
Of honest advances?
I'd say low
Better to win
By admitting my sin
Than to lose with a halo
Tell me before I seek worthier pastures
And thereby restore self-esteem
How can you be so short-sighted
To look never further than this week or next week
To have no impossible dream?
Allow me to help you slink off to the sidelines
And mark your adieu with three cheers
But first tell me who'd be delighted
If I said I'd take on the
The world's greatest problems
From war to pollution?
No hope of solution
Even if I lived for one hundred years
There is evil, ever around, fundamental
System of government quite incidental
So go, if you're able
To somewhere unstable
And stay there
Whip up your hate
In some tottering state
But not here, dear
Is that clear, dear?
Oh what I'd give for a hundred years!
But the physical interferes
Every day more
Oh my Creator!
What is the good of the strongest heart
In a body that's falling apart?
A serious flaw
I hope you know that


YOUR LITTLE BODY'S SLOWLY BREAKING DOWN (by Madonna and Jonathan Pryce)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Your little body's slowly breaking down
You're losing speed
You're losing strength not style that goes on
Flourishing forever, but your eyes, your smile
Do not have the sparkle of your fantastic past
If you climb one more mountain it could be your last
I'm not that ill bad moments come but they go
Some days are fine, some a little bit harder
But that doesn't mean
We should give up our dream
Have you ever seen
Me defeated?
Don't you forget what I've been through and yet
I'm still standing
Eva, you are dying
So what happens now?
Where am I going to?
Don't ask anymore


YOU MUST LOVE ME (by Madonna)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Where do we go from here?
This isn't where we intended to be
We had it all, you believed in me
I believed in you
Certainties disappear
What do we do for our dream to survive?
How do we keep all our passions alive
As we used to do?
CHORUS:
Deep in my heart I'm concealing
Things that I'm longing to say
Scared to confess what I'm feeling
Frightened you'll slip away
You must love me
You must love me
Why are you at my side?
How can I be any use to you now?
Give me a chance and I'll let you see how
Nothing has changed
CHORUS:
Deep in my heart I'm concealing
Things that I'm longing to say
Scared to confess what I'm feeling
Frightened you'll slip away
You must love me
You must love me
You must love me


EVA'S FINAL BROADCAST (by Madonna)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

The actress hasn't learned the lines you'd like to hear
She's sad for her country
Sad to be defeated by her own weak body
Evita! Evita! Evita!
I want to tell the people of Argentina
I've decided I should decline
All the honors and titles you've pressed me to take
For I'm contented let me simply go on
As the woman who brings her people to the heart of Peron!
Don't cry for me Argentina
The truth is I shall not leave you
Though it may get harder
For you to see me
I'm Argentina
And always will be
Have I said too much?
There's nothing more I can think of
To say to you
But all you have to do
Is look at me to know that every word is true


LATIN CHANT (by Antonio Banderas)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Respice, quaesumus, Domine
Famulam tuam Evita
In infirmitate
Et animam refove, quam creasti
Ut castigationibus emendata
Se tua sentiat medicina salvatam
Per Christum, Dominuum
Qui vivit et regnat
Per omnia saecula saeculorum
Amen
She had her moments
She had some style
The best show in town was the crowd
Outside the Casa Rosada crying 'Eva Peron'
But that's all gone now


LAMENT (by Madonna and Antonio Banderas)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

The choice was mine and mine completely
I could have any prize that I desired
I could burn with the splendor of the brightest fire
Or else or else I could choose time
Remember I was very young then
And a year was forever and a day
So what use could fifty, sixty, seventy be?
I saw the lights and I was on my way
And how I lived! How they shone!
But how soon the lights were gone!
The choice was yours and no one else's
You can cry for a body in despair
Hang your head because she is no longer there
To shine, or dazzle, or betray
How she lived, how she shone
But how soon the lights were gone
(Eyes, hair, face, image
All must be preserved
Still life displayed forever
No less than she deserved)

DROWNED WORLD/SUBSTITUTE FOR LOVE
Written by Madonna, William Orbit, Rod McKuen, Anita Kerr and David Collins
RAY OF LIGHT ALBUM 1998, GHV2 COMPILATION ALBUM

I traded fame for love
Without a second thought
It all became a silly game
Some things cannot be bought
I got exactly what I asked for
Wanted it so badly
Running, rushing back for more
I suffered fools
So gladly
And now I find
I've changed my mind
CHORUS:
The face of you
My substitute for love
My substitute for love
Should I wait for you
My substitute for love
My substitute for love
I traveled round the world
Looking for a home
I found myself in crowded rooms
Feeling so alone
I had so many lovers
Who settled for the thrill
Of basking in my spotlight
I never felt
So happy
CHORUS:
The face of you
My substitute for love
My substitute for love
Should I wait for you
My substitute for love
My substitute for love
Mmmm mmm mmm mmm mmm
Oh oh oh ohh
Famous faces, far off places
Trinkets I can buy
No handsome stranger, heady danger
Drug that I can try
No ferris wheel, no heart to steal
No laughter in the dark
No one night stand, no far off land
No fire that I can spark
Mmmm mmm mmm mmm mmm
Mmmm mmm mmm mmm mmm
CHORUS:
The face of you
My substitute for love
My substitute for love
Mmmm mmm mmm mmm mmm
Should I wait for you
My substitute for love
My substitute for love
Now I find I've changed my mind
This is my religion...


SWIM
Written by Madonna and William Orbit

Put your head on my shoulder baby
Things can't get any worse
Night is getting colder
Sometimes life feels like it's a curse
CHORUS:
I can't carry these sins on my back
Don't wanna carry anymore
I'm gonna carry this train off the track
I'm gonna swim to the ocean floor
Mmmmmm
Crash to the other shore
Mmmmmm
Swim to the ocean floor
Children killing children
While the students rape their teachers
Comets fly across the sky
While the churches burn their preachers
CHORUS:
We can't carry these sins on our back
Don't wanna carry anymore
We're gonna carry this train off the track
We're gonna swim to the ocean floor
Mmmmmm
Crash to the other shore
Mmmmmm
Swim to the ocean floor
Let the water wash over you
Wash it all over you
Swim to the ocean floor
So that we can begin again
Wash away all our sin
Crash to the other shore
Mmmmmm
CHORUS:
I can't carry these sins on my back
Don't wanna carry anymore
I'm gonna carry this train off the track
I'm gonna swim to the ocean floor
Mmmmmm
Crash to the other shore
Mmmmmm
Swim to the ocean floor
CHORUS:
We can't carry these sins on our back
Don't wanna carry anymore
We're gonna carry this train off the track
We're gonna swim to the ocean floor
Crash to the other shore
Swim to the ocean floor
Mmmmmmmmm
Ooooo


RAY OF LIGHT
Written by Madonna, William Orbit, Clive Muldoon, Dave Curtis and Christine Leach
RAY OF LIGHT ALBUM 1998, GHV2 COMPILATION ALBUM 2001, CELEBRATION COMPILATION ALBUM 2009

Zephyr in the sky at night I wonder
Do my tears of mourning
Sink beneath the sun
She's got herself a universe gone quickly
For the call of thunder
Threatens everyone
CHORUS:
And I feel
Like I just got home
And I feel
And I feel
Like I just got home
And I feel
Faster than the speeding light she's flying
Trying to remember where it all began
She's got herself a little piece of heaven
Waiting for the time when earth shall be as one
CHORUS:
And I feel
Like I just got home
And I feel
And I feel
Like I just got home
And I feel
Quicker than a ray of light
Quicker than a ray of light
Quicker than a ray of light
Zephyr in the sky at night I wonder
Do my tears of mourning
Sink beneath the sun
She's got herself a universe gone quickly
For the call of thunder
Threatens everyone
And I feel
Quicker than a ray of light
Then gone for
Someone else shall be there
Thru the endless years
She's got herself a universe
She's got herself a universe
She's got herself a universe
And I feel
And I feel
And I feel
Like I just got home
And I feel
Quicker than a ray of light she's flying
Quicker than a ray of light I'm flying

SKIN
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

CHORUS:
Do I know you from somewhere?
Why do you leave me wanting more?
Why do all the things I say
Sound like the stupid things I've said before?
Put your hand on my skin
Put your hand on my skin
Put your hand on my skin
Kiss me, I'm dying
Put your hand on my skin
I close my eyes
I need to make a connection
I'm walking on a thin line
I close my eyes
I close my eyes
CHORUS:
Do I know you from somewhere?
Why do you leave me wanting more?
Why do all the things I say
Sound like the stupid things I've said before?
Kiss, kiss, kiss, kiss me
Touch me, I'm trying
To see inside of your soul
I've got this thing
I want to make a connection
I'm not like this all the time
You've got this thing
You've got this thing
CHORUS:
Do I know you from somewhere?
Why do you leave me wanting more?
Why do all the things I say
Sound like the stupid things I've said before?
Kiss me, I'm dying
Put your hand on my skin
I close my eyes
I need to have your protection
I close my eyes
I close your eyes
Kiss, kiss, kiss, kiss me
CHORUS:
Do I know you from somewhere?
Why do you leave me wanting more?
Why do all the things I say
Sound like the stupid things I've said before?
Do I know you from somewhere
Why do you leave me wanting more
Why do all the things I say
Sound like the stupid things I've said before
Kiss me, I'm dying
Touch me, I'm trying, ohhhh
I'm not like this all the time
I'm not like this all the time
Put your hand on my skin
Put your hand on my skin
Put your hand on my skin
Touch me, I'm trying, ohhhh
Put your hand on my skin
Put your hand on my skin
I'm not like this all the time (kiss, kiss,...)
I'm not like this all the time (kiss, kiss,...)
I'm not like this all the time (kiss, kiss, kiss me...)
Put your hand on my skin
Put your hand on my skin


NOTHING REALLY MATTERS
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

When I was very young
Nothing really mattered to me
But making myself happy
I was the only one
Now that I am grown
Everything's changed
I'll never be the same
Because of you
CHORUS:
Nothing really matters
Love is all we need
Everything I give you
All comes back to me
Looking at my life
It's very clear to me
I lived so selfishly
I was the only one
I realize
That nobody wins
Something is ending
And something begins
CHORUS:
Nothing really matters
Love is all we need
Everything I give you
All comes back to
Nothing really matters
Love is all we need
Everything I give you
All comes back to me
Nothing takes the past away
Like the future
Nothing makes the darkness go
Like the light
You're shelter from the storm
Give me comfort in your arms
CHORUS:
Nothing really matters
Love is all we need
Everything I give you
All comes back to me
Nothing really matters
Love is all we need
Everything I give you
All comes back to me
Nothing really matters
Love is all we need


SKY FITS HEAVEN
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

Sky fits heaven so fly it
That's what the prophet said to me
Child fits mother so hold your baby tight
That's what my future could see
Fate fits karma so use it
That's what the wise man said to me
Love fits virtue so hold on to the light
That's what our future will be
CHORUS:
Traveling down this road
Watching the signs as I go
I think I'll follow the sun
Isn't everyone just
Traveling down their own road
Watching the signs as they go
I think I'll follow my heart
It's a very good place to start
Traveling down my own road
Watching the signs as I go
Traveling down my own road
And I'm watching the signs as I go
Traveling traveling
Watching the signs as I go
Hand fits giving so do it
That's what the Gospel said to me
Life fits living so let your judgments go
That's how our future should be
CHORUS:
Traveling down this road
Watching the signs as I go
I think I'll follow the sun
Isn't everyone just
Traveling down their own road
Watching the signs as they go
I think I'll follow my heart
It's a very good place to start
Traveling down my own road
Watching the signs as they go
Traveling down my own road
And I'm watching the signs as I go
Traveling traveling
Watching the signs as I go

FROZEN
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard
RAY OF LIGHT ALBUM 1998, GHV2 COMPILATION ALBUM 2001, CELEBRATION COMPILATION ALBUM 2009

You only see what your eyes want to see
How can life be what you want it to be?
You're frozen
When your heart's not open
You're so consumed with how much you get
You waste your time with hate and regret
You're broken
When your heart's not open
CHORUS:
Mmmmm, if I could melt your heart
Mmmmm, we'd never be apart
Mmmmm, give yourself to me
Mmmmm, you hold the key
Now there's no point in placing the blame
And you should know I suffer the same
If I lose you
My heart will be broken
Love is a bird
She needs to fly
Let all the hurt inside you die
You're frozen
When your heart's not open
CHORUS:
Mmmmm, if I could melt your heart
Mmmmm, we'd never be apart
Mmmmm, give yourself to me
Mmmmm, you hold the key
You only see what your eyes want to see
How can life be what you want it to be?
You're frozen
When your heart's not open
CHORUS:
Mmmmm, if I could melt your heart
Mmmmm, we'd never be apart
Mmmmm, give yourself to me
Mmmmm, you hold the key
Mmmmm, if I could melt your heart
Mmmmm, we'd never be apart
Mmmmm, give yourself to me
Mmmmm, you hold the key
If I could melt your heart


THE POWER OF GOOD-BYE
Written by Madonna and Rick Nowels
RAY OF LIGHT ALBUM 1998, GHV2 COMPILATION ALBUM 2001

Your heart is not open
So I must go
The spell has been broken
I loved you so
Freedom comes when you learn to let go
Creation comes when you learn to say no
You were my lesson
I had to learn
I was your fortress
You had to burn
Pain is a warning that something's wrong
I pray to God that it won't be long
Do you wanna go higher?
CHORUS:
There's nothing left to try
There's no place left to hide
There's no greater power than the power of good-bye
Your heart is not open
So I must go
The spell has been broken
I loved you so
You were my lesson
I had to learn
I was your fortress
CHORUS:
There's nothing left to lose
There's no more heart to bruise
There's no greater power than the power of good-bye
Learn to say good-bye
I yearn to say good-bye
CHORUS:
There's nothing left to try
There's no more places to hide
There's no greater power than the power of good-bye
There's nothing left to lose
There's no more heart to bruise
There's no greater power than the power of good-bye


TO HAVE AND NOT TO HOLD
Written by Madonna and Rick Nowels

To have and not to hold
So hot yet so cold
My heart is in your hand
And yet you never stand
Close enough for me to have my way
To love but not to keep
To laugh not to weep
Your eyes they go right through
And yet you never do
Anything to make me want to stay
Like a moth
To a flame
Only I
Am to blame
CHORUS:
Ba ba da ba ba ba, what can I do?
Ba ba da ba ba ba, I go straight to you
Ba ba da ba ba ba, I've been told
You're to have not to hold
To look but not to see
To kiss but never be
The object of your desire
I'm walking on a wire
And there's no one at all
To break my fall
Like a moth
To a flame
Only I
Am to blame
CHORUS:
Ba ba da ba ba ba, what can I do?
Ba ba da ba ba ba, I go straight to you
Ba ba da ba ba ba, I've been told
You're to have not to hold
You're to have not to hold
You're to have
Not to hold
Like a moth
To a flame
Only I
Am to blame
CHORUS:
Ba ba da ba ba ba, what can I do?
Ba ba da ba ba ba, I go straight to you
Ba ba da ba ba ba, I've been told
You're to have not to hold
You're to have not to hold
You're to have not to hold
You're to have
Not to hold


LITTLE STAR
Written by Madonna and Rick Nowels

Never forget who you are
Little star
Never forget how to dream
Butterfly
God gave a present to me
Made of flesh and bones
My life
My soul
You make my spirit whole
Never forget who you are
Little star
Shining brighter than all the stars in the sky
Never forget how to dream
Butterfly
Never forget where you come from
From love
You are a treasure to me
You are my star
You breathe
New life
Into my broken heart
Never forget who you are
Little star
Never forget how to dream
Butterfly
May the angels protect you
And sadness forget you
Little star
There's no reason to weep
Lay your head down to sleep
Little star
May goodness surround you
My love I have found you
Little star
Shining bright
You breathe
New life
Into my broken heart
Never forget who you are
Little star
Shining brighter than all the stars in the sky
Never forget how to dream
Butterfly
Flying higher than all the birds in the sky
Never forget who you are
Little star
Never forget where you come from
From love
Little star
Little star
Little star
From love


MER GIRL
Written by Madonna and William Orbit

I ran from my house
That cannot contain me
From the man that I cannot keep
From my mother who haunts me
Even though she's gone
From my daughter that never sleeps
I ran from the noise and the silence
From the traffic on the streets
I ran to the treetops
I ran to the sky
Out to the lake
Into the rain
That matted my hair
And soaked my shoes and skin
Hid my tears, hid my fears
CHORUS:
I ran to the forest
I ran to the trees
I ran and I ran
I was looking for me
I ran past the churches
And the crooked old mailbox
Past the apple orchards
And the lady that never talks
Up into the hills
I ran to the cemetery
And held my breath
And thought about your death
I ran to the lake
Up into the hills
I ran and I ran
I'm looking there still
And I saw the crumbling tombstones
All forgotten names
I tasted the rain
I tasted my tears
I cursed the angels
I tasted my fears
And the ground gave way beneath my feet
And the earth took me in her arms
Leaves covered my face
Ants marched across my back
Black sky opened up
Blinding me
CHORUS:
I ran to the forest
I ran to the trees
I ran and I ran
I was looking for me
I ran to the lakes
And up to the hill
I ran and I ran
I'm looking there still
And I smelt her burning flesh
Her rotting bones
Her decay
I ran and I ran
I'm still running away


MADONNA - RAY OF LIGHT ALBUM 1998 JAPANESE EDITION BONUS TRACK

HAS TO BE
Written by Madonna, William Orbit and Patrick Leonard

Breathe in
Breathe out
I say a little prayer
How the Gods above
Could be so unfair?
CHORUS:
I know there's someone out there
Waiting for me
There must be someone out there
There just has to be
Go on
Go on
Don't sit there like a fool
You've graduated from
A different kind of school
CHORUS:
I know there's someone out there
Waiting for me
There must be someone out there
There just has to be
I know there's someone out there
Waiting for me
There must be someone out there
There just has to be
I should be glad that I'm alive
It could have been much worse
I might have never loved at all
And never know what I am worth
How the Gods above
Could be so unfair?
CHORUS:
I know there's someone out there
Waiting for me
There must be someone out there
There just has to be
I know there's someone out there
Waiting for me
There must be someone out there
There just has to be
