Seasick Steve – You can’t teach an old dog new tricks


“You Can’t Teach An Old Dog New Tricks”

There must be something wrong with me
What it is I can’t quite see
I can’t seem to do nothing right
Never need to change my style
Been this way for a long long while
Maybe there’s a few things I oughta fix

But can you teach an old dog new tricks

Wanna put a little fire in my life
Climb a little higher, that is right
Tired of this ordinary bullshit
Never need to change my style
Been this way for a long long while
Maybe there’s a few things I oughta fix

But can you teach an old dog new tricks
Can you teach an old dog new tricks

Well, that right
Maybe I should leave well enough alone
I might not be perfect but I’m me to the bone
I don’t need to change my style
Been this way for a long long while
There ain’t nothing that I got to fix

You can’t teach an old dog new tricks
You can’t teach an old dog new tricks
You can’t teach an old dog

You can’t teach an old dog new tricks
You can’t teach an old dog new tricks
You can’t teach an old dog
You can’t teach an old dog new tricks
You can’t teach
Have mercy!
You can’t teach
You can’t teach
O Lord!

I just love this son – it’s… I dunno but I like it!

Walk the Moon – Shut up and Danc with Me

Walk the Moon – Shut Up and Danc with Me


Shut Up And Dance”


“Oh don’t you dare look back.
Just keep your eyes on me.”
I said, “You’re holding back,”
She said, “Shut up and dance with me!”
This woman is my destiny
She said, “Ooh-ooh-hoo,
Shut up and dance with me.”

We were victims of the night,
The chemical, physical, kryptonite
Helpless to the bass and the fading light
Oh, we were bound to get together,
Bound to get together.

She took my arm,
I don’t know how it happened.
We took the floor and she said,

“Oh, don’t you dare look back.
Just keep your eyes on me.”
I said, “You’re holding back,”
She said, “Shut up and dance with me!”
This woman is my destiny
She said, “Ooh-ooh-hoo,
Shut up and dance with me.”

A backless dress and some beat up sneaks,
My discothèque, Juliet teenage dream.
I felt it in my chest as she looked at me.
I knew we were bound to be together,
Bound to be together

She took my arm,
I don’t know how it happened.
We took the floor and she said,

“Oh, don’t you dare look back.
Just keep your eyes on me.”
I said, “You’re holding back,”
She said, “Shut up and dance with me!”
This woman is my destiny
She said, “Ooh-ooh-hoo,
Shut up and dance with me.”

Oh, come on girl!

Deep in her eyes,
I think I see the future.
I realize this is my last chance.

She took my arm,
I don’t know how it happened.
We took the floor and she said,

“Oh, don’t you dare look back.
Just keep your eyes on me.”
I said, “You’re holding back,”
She said, “Shut up and dance with me!”
This woman is my destiny
She said, “Ooh-ooh-hoo,
Shut up and dance!”

“Don’t you dare look back.
Just keep your eyes on me.”
I said, “You’re holding back,”
She said, “Shut up and dance with me!”
This woman is my destiny
She said, “Ooh-ooh-hoo,
Shut up and dance with me.”

Ooh-ooh-hoo, shut up and dance with me [x2]

I fell in love with Evanescence and their music the day I heard this song, Katherine Jenkins took it and made it even better if that was possible. But this is the original!

Evanescence – Bring me to Life

Evanescence – Bring me to Life


Bring Me To Life

How can you see into my eyes like open doors?
Leading you down into my core where I’ve become so numb
Without a soul my spirit’s sleeping somewhere cold
Until you find it there and lead it back home

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
Call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
Bid my blood to run
(I can’t wake up)
Before I come undone
(Save me)
Save me from the nothing I’ve become

Now that I know what I’m without
You can’t just leave me
Breathe into me and make me real
Bring me to life

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
Call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
Bid my blood to run
(I can’t wake up)
Before I come undone
(Save me)
Save me from the nothing I’ve become

Bring me to life
(I’ve been living a lie, there’s nothing inside)
Bring me to life

Frozen inside without your touch
Without your love, darling
Only you are the life among the dead

All this time I can’t believe I couldn’t see
Kept in the dark but you were there in front of me
I’ve been sleeping a thousand years it seems
Got to open my eyes to everything
Without a thought, without a voice, without a soul
Don’t let me die here
There must be something more
Bring me to life

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
Call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
Bid my blood to run
(I can’t wake up)
Before I come undone
(Save me)
Save me from the nothing I’ve become

Bring me to life
(I’ve been living a lie, there’s nothing inside)
Bring me to life

This song is appearing all over the place these days, but Eric and Ernie immortalised it!

Bring me Sunshine – Eric and Ernie

Eric and Ernie – Bring me Sunshine


“You Bring Me Sunshine”

Bring me sunshine in your smile
Bring me laughter all the while
In this world where we live
There should be more happiness
All the joy can give
Te each brand new bright tomorrow
Make me happy through the years
Never bring me any tearsLet your arms be as warm
As the sun from up above
Bring me fun, bring me sunshine, bring me love

Bring me sunshine in your eye
Bring me a rainbow from the sky
Life’s too short to be spent having anything but fun
We can be so content if we gather little rainbows
Make me happy all the long
And I’ll keep singing my happy songs

Let your arms be as warm
As the sun from up above
Bring me fun, bring me sunshine, bring me love

Make me happy all long
And I’ll keep on singing my happy songs

Let your arms be as warm
As the sun from up above
Bring me fun, bring me sunshine, bring me love
