Mitsingkonzert Ute’s Geburtstag

Horse With No Name (America)

On the first part of the journey
I was looking at all the life
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
There was sand and hills and rings

The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz
And the sky with no clouds
The heat was hot, and the ground was dry
But the air was full of sound

Refrain
I’ve been through the desert
On a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert, you can remember your name
‚Cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain

La la la la….

After two days in the desert sun
My skin began to turn red
After three days in the desert fun
I was looking at a river bed
And the story it told of a river that flowed
Made me sad to think it was dead

Refrain

After nine days, I let the horse run free
‚Cause the desert had turned to sea
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
There was sand and hills and rings

The ocean is a desert with it’s life underground
And a perfect disguise above
Under the cities lies a heart made of ground
But the humans will give no love

Refrain


Breakfast In America (Supertramp)

Take a look at my girlfriend
She’s the only one I got
Not much of a girlfriend
I’ve never seem to get a lot

Take a jumbo across the water
Like to see America
See the girls in California
I’m hopin‘, it’s going to come true
But there’s not a lot, I can do

Could we have kippers for breakfast
Mummy dear, Mummy dear
They got to have ‚em in Texas
‚Cos everyone’s a millionaire

I’m a winner, I’m a sinner
Do you want my autograph
I’m a loser, what a joker
I’m playing my jokes upon you
While there’s nothin‘ better to do

Hey, dadada…..

Don’t you look at my girlfriend (Girlfriend)
She’s the only one I got
Not much of a girlfriend (Girlfriend)
I’ve never seem to get a lot (What she got in another land)

Take a jumbo cross the water
Like to see America
See the girls in California
I’m hoping it’s going to come true
But there’s not a lot I can do


Angels (Robbie Williams)

I sit and wait
Does an angel contemplate my fate
And do they know
The places where we go
When we’re grey and old
‚Cause I have been told
That salvation lets their wings unfold

So when I’m lying in my bed
Thoughts running through my head
And I feel the love is dead
I’m loving angels instead

Refrain
And through it all she offers me protection
A lot of love and affection
Whether I’m right or wrong
And down the waterfall
Wherever it may take me
I know that life won’t break me
When I come to call, she won’t forsake me
I’m loving angels instead

When I’m feeling weak
And my pain walks down a one way street
I look above
And I know I’ll always be blessed with love
And as the feeling grows
She breathes flesh to my bones
And when love is dead
I’m loving angels instead

Refrain

Solo

Time To Wonder (Fury In The Slaughterhouse)

We’ve got time to wait
And we wait until it’s too late
We always move in seconds in a world of hours and days
We’ve got bones and blood
Is this all what we’ve got
I thought there was a brain but maybe I just thought in vain

And this is not the time to wonder
And this is not the time to cry
And this is not the time to sleep while we fight
And this is not the time to die

Realities and dreams
Reality is not what it seems
It’s not the way we want it it’s just the way it gotta be
We’ve got love and hate
But we can’t estimate
What’s the right solution to kill the illusion of this world

And this is not the time to wonder
And this is not the time to cry
And this is not the time to sleep while we fight
And this is not the time to die
And this is not the time to wonder
‚Cause this is just a time to fear
Don’t worry about the meaning don’t worry ‚bout the world
It’s the question how to see clear
That’s the time
That’s the time
That’s the time
Oh yes that’s the time
Go

And this is not the time to wonder
And this is not the time to cry
And this is not the time to sleep while we fight
And this is not the time to die
And this is not the time to wonder
‚Cause this is just a time to fear
Don’t worry about the meaning don’t worry ‚bout the world
It’s the question how to see clear

Oh this is not the time to wonder
And this is not the time to cry
And this is not the time to sleep while we fight
And this is not the time to die
That’s the time

I am just a poor boy
Though my story’s seldom told
I have squandered my resistance
For a pocketful of mumbles
Such are promises
All lies and jest
Still a man hears what he wants to hear
And disregards the rest

When I left my home and my family
I was no more than a boy
In the company of strangers
In the quiet of the railway station
Running scared
Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters
Where the ragged people go
Looking for the places only they would know

Asking only workman’s wages, I come looking for a job
But I get no offers
Just a come-on from the whores on 7th Avenue
I do declare, there were times when I was so lonesome
I took some comfort there, la-la-la-la-la-la-la

Solo

Then I’m laying out my winter clothes
And wishing I was gone, going home
Where the New York City winters aren’t bleeding me
Leading me, going home


In the clearing stands a boxer
And a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders
Of every glove that laid him down
Or cut him till he cried out
In his anger and his shame
„I am leaving, I am leaving“
But the fighter still remains

Lie-la-lie
Lie-la-lie-lie-lie-lie-lie
Lie-la-lie
Lie-la-lie-lie-lie-lie-lie, lie-lie-lie-lie-lie


Mighty Quinn (Bob Dylan, Manfred Mann)

Everybody’s building ships and boats
Some are building monuments, others are jotting down notes
Everybody’s in despair, every girl and boy
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here
Everybody’s gonna jump for joy

Come all without, come all within
You’ll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn
Come all without, come all within
You’ll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn

Let me do what I wanna do, I like my sugar sweet
But jumping queues and makin‘ haste
Just ain’t my cup of meat
Everyone’s beneath the trees, feedin‘ pigeons on a limb
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here
All the pigeons gonna run to him

Come all without, come all within
You’ll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn
Come all without, come all within
You’ll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn

Let me do what I wanna do, I like my sugar sweet
But jumping queues and makin‘ haste
Just ain’t my cup of meat
Everyone’s beneath the trees, feedin‘ pigeons on a limb
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here
All the pigeons gonna run to him

Come all without, come all within
You’ll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn

Piano Man (Billy Joel)

It’s nine o’clock on a Saturday
The regular crowd shuffles in
There’s an old man sitting next to me
Makin‘ love to his tonic and gin

He says, „Son, can you play me a memory?
I’m not really sure how it goes
But it’s sad and it’s sweet, and I knew it complete
When I wore a younger man’s clothes“

La, la, la, de, de, da,
La, la, de, de, da, da, da

Sing us a song, you’re the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well, we’re all in the mood for a melody
And you’ve got us feelin‘ alright

Now John at the bar is a friend of mine
He gets me my drinks for free
And he’s quick with a joke or to light up your smoke
But there’s someplace that he’d rather be

He says, „Bill, I believe this is killing me“
As a smile ran away from his face
„Well, I’m sure that I could be a movie star
If I could get out of this place“

Oh, la, la, la, de, de, da, La, la, de, de, da, da, da

Now Paul is a real estate novelist
Who never had time for a wife
And he’s talkin‘ with Davy, who’s still in the Navy
And probably will be for life

And the waitress is practicing politics
As the businessman slowly get stoned
Yes, they’re sharing a drink they call loneliness
But it’s better than drinkin‘ alone

Sing us a song, you’re the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well, we’re all in the mood for a melody
And you’ve got us feelin‘ alright

It’s a pretty good crowd for a Saturday
And the manager gives me a smile
‚Cause he knows that it’s me they’ve been comin‘ to see
To forget about life for a while

And the piano, it sounds like a carnival
And the microphone smells like a beer
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
And say, „Man, what are you doin‘ here?“

Oh, la, la, la, de, de, da
La, la, de, de, da, da, da

Sing us a song, you’re the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well, we’re all in the mood for a melody
And you’ve got us feelin‘ alright


Mit 18 (Marius Müller-Westernhagen)

Ich hab ’n Luxus-Auto
Und ich hab ’ne teure Wohnung
(Doch was mir fehlt, doch was mir fehlt)
Das ist ’ne richtige Dröhnung

Hey, mit 18 rannt ich in Düsseldorf rum
War Sänger in ’ner Rock and Roll Band
Meine Mutter nahm mir das immer krumm
Ich sollt was seriöses werden

Wir verdienten vierhundert Mark pro Auftritt
Für ’ne Rolling Stones Kopie
Die Gitarren verstimmt und es ging tierisch los
Und wir hielten uns für Genies

Refrain:
Ich möcht zurück auf die Straße
Möcht wieder singen, nicht schön, sondern geil und laut
Gold find‘ man bekanntlich im Dreck
Und Straßen sind aus Dreck gebaut

Ja, nach jedem Gig zum Hühner-Hugo
Dort verfraßen wir unser Geld
Was soll man schon machen mit den paar Mark
Ich hab ’nen Verstärker bestellt, ja ja

Refrain

An Mädchen hat es uns nie gemangelt
Auch ohne dickes Konto
Wir kratzten den letzten Dope zusammen
Dann flogen wir ab nach… wohin du willst

Refrain

Jetzt sitz ich hier, bin etabliert
Und schreib auf teurem Papier
Ein Lied über meine Vergangenheit
Damit ich den Frust verlier

Refrain

Du-du-duhh, du-du-duhh, du-du-du-dduh, du-du-du-dduh
Du-du-duhh, du-du-duhh, du-du-du-dduh, du-du-du-dduh (yeah)


Mit Pfefferminz bin ich dein Prinz (Marius Müller-Westernhagen)

Draußen ist es grau
Ich sitz‘ mit dir hier blau
Ob ich mir ein Küsschen klau‘?
Nu‘ lass das doch, du alte Sau
Liebling, lass uns tanzen
Das tut dem Blutdruck gut
Liebling, lass uns tanzen
Denn tanzen darf ein jeder Jud‘

N… die sind dunkel
Im Dunkeln lässt sich’s munkeln
An der Macht da sind die Weißen
Darauf reimt sich sch sch sch
Liebling, lass uns tanzen
Silvester gießen wir Blei
Liebling, lass uns lauter singen
Dann sind auch wir bald vogelfrei

Oh Pippi ist kein Name
Und auch kein Getränk
Und mancher muss schon rennen
Wenn er nur an Pipi denkt (oh)
Liebling, lass uns tanzen
Du wackelst ja wie Kleister, wie Kleister
Mein Hund der heißt Fritz oder Franz oder so
Und wenn man ihn tritt dann beißt er (uh)

Glaubst du an den lieben Gott?
Oder an Guevara?
Ich glaube an die Deutsche Bank
Denn die zahlt aus in bar ah
Liebling, lass uns tanzen
Hast du noch ’nen Pfefferminz
‚Nen Pfefferminz?
So, und nun gib mir ’nen Kuss
Mit Pfefferminz bin ich dein Prinz



Hot Summer Night (You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth) (Meatloaf)

It was a hot summer night
And the beach was burning
There was fog crawling over the sand
When I listen to your heart
I hear the whole world turning
I see the shooting stars
Falling through your trembling hands

You were licking your lips and your lipstick shining
I was dying just to ask for a taste
We were lying together in a silver lining
By the light of the moon
You know there’s not another moment
Not another moment, not another moment to waste

You hold me so close that my knees grow weak
But my soul is flying high above the ground
I’m trying to speak, but no matter what I do
I just can’t seem to make any sound

And then you took the words right out of my mouth
Oh, it must have been while you were kissing me
You took the words right out of my mouth
And I swear it’s true
I was just about to say I love you (love you)

And then you took the words right out of my mouth
Oh-it must have been while you were kissing me
You took the words right out of my mouth
And I swear it’s true
I was just about to say I love you (love you)

Now my body is shaking like a wave on the water
And I guess that I′m beginning to grin
Oh, we’re finally alone and we can do what we want to
Oh, the night is young, ain′t no one gonna know where
No one gonna know where
No one’s gonna know where you′ve been

Oh, you were licking your lips and your lipstick’s shining
I was dying just to ask for a taste
Oh, we were lying together in a silver lining
By the the light of the moon
You know there′s not another moment to waste

And then you took the words right out of my mouth
Oh, it must have been while you were kissing me



Ring of Fire (Johnny Cash)

Love is a burning thing
And it makes a fiery ring
Bound by wild desire
I fell into a ring of fire

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down
And the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns
The ring of fire
The ring of fire

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down
And the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns
The ring of fire
The ring of fire

The taste of love is sweet
When hearts like ours meet
I fell for you like a child
Oh, but the fire went wild

||:I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down
And the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns
The ring of fire
The ring of fire:||

And it burns, burns, burns
The ring of fire
The ring of fire
The ring of fire
The ring of fire

I Shot The Sheriff (Bob Marley/Eric Clapton)

I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy
I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy

All around in my home town
They’re trying to track me down
They say they want to bring me in guilty
For the killing of a deputy
For the life of a deputy, but I say

I shot the sheriff, but I swear it was in self-defense
I shot the sheriff, and they say it is a capital offense

Sheriff John Brown always hated me
For what I don’t know
Every time that I plant a seed
He said, „Kill it before it grows“
He said, „Kill it before it grows“, I say

I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy
I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy

Freedom came my way one day
And I started out of town
All of a sudden I see sheriff John Brown
Aiming to shoot me down
So I shot, I shot him down, I say

I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy
I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy

Reflexes got the better of me
And what is to be must be
Every day the bucket goes to the well
But one day the bottom will drop out
Yes, one day the bottom will drop out, but I say

I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy, oh no
I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy, oh no



Hot Love (T. Rex)

Well, she’s my woman of gold
And she’s not very old, a-ha-ha
Well, she’s my woman of gold
And she’s not very old, a-ha-ha
I don’t mean to be bold,
But-a may I hold your hand?

Well, she ain’t no witch
And I love the way she twitch, a-ha-ha
Well, she ain’t no witch
And I love the way she twitch, a-ha-ha
I’m a labourer of love in my Persian gloves, a-ha-ha

Well, she’s faster than most
And she lives on the coast, a-ha-ha
Well, she’s faster than most
And she lives on the coast, a-ha-ha
I’m her two penny prince and I give her hot love, a-ha-ha
Take it out on me, mama

Well, she ain’t no witch
And I love the way she twitch, a-ha-ha (Ah, ah, ah)
Well, she ain’t no witch
And I love the way she twitch, a-ha-ha
I’m her two penny prince and I give her hot love, a-ha-ha

La-la-la-lala-lala
La-la-la-lala-lala
La-la-la-lala-lala


Tainted Love (Soft Cell)

Sometimes I feel I’ve got to run away
I’ve got to get away
From the pain you drive into the heart of me
The love we share seems to go nowhere
And I’ve lost my life
For I toss and turn, I can’t sleep at night

Once I ran to you (I ran)
Now I run from you
This tainted love you’ve given
I give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that’s not nearly all
Tainted love
Tainted love

Now, I know I’ve got to run away
I’ve got to get away
You don’t really want any more from me
To make things right you need someone to hold you tight
And you think love is to pray
But I’m sorry I don’t pray that way

Once I ran to you (I ran)
Now I run from you
This tainted love you’ve given
I give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that’s not nearly all
Tainted love
Tainted love

Don’t touch me, please, I cannot stand the way you tease
I love you though you hurt me so
Now I’m gonna pack my things and go

Tainted love (oh) 4x

Touch me, baby, tainted love
Touch me, baby, tainted love
Tainted love (oh)


In The Air Tonight (Phil Collins)

I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh, lord
And I’ve been waiting for this moment, for all my life, oh, lord
Can you feel it coming in the air tonight, oh, lord, oh, lord

Well, if you told me you were drowning
I would not lend a hand
I’ve seen your face before my friend
But I don’t know if you know who I am
Well, I was there and I saw what you did
I saw it with my own two eyes
So you can wipe off that grin, I know where you’ve been
It’s all been a pack of lies

And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh, lord
Well, I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh, lord
I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh, lord
Well, I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh, lord, oh, lord

Well, I remember, I remember don’t worry
How could I ever forget?
It’s the first time, the last time we ever met
But I know the reason why you keep this silence up
No, you don’t fool me
The hurt doesn’t show, but the pain still grows
It’s no stranger to you and me

DU DUMM – DU DUMM – DU DUMM – DU DUMM – DUMM – DUMM

And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh, lord
Well, I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh, lord
I can feel it in the air tonight, oh, lord, oh, lord
Well, I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh, lord
I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh, lord
And I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh, lord
I can feel it in the air tonight, oh, lord, oh, lord, oh, lord
Well, I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh, lord, oh, lord
I can feel it in the air tonight, oh, lord, oh, lord, oh, lord, oh, lord
Well, I’ve been waiting for this moment all my life, oh, lord, oh, lord

Hey Jude (The Beatles)

Hey Jude, don’t make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better
Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better

Hey Jude, don’t be afraid
You were made to go out and get her
The minute you let her under your skin
Then you begin to make it better

And anytime you feel the pain, hey Jude, refrain
Don’t carry the world upon your shoulders
For well you know that it’s a fool who plays it cool
By making his world a little colder
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah

Hey Jude, don’t let me down
You have found her, now go and get her
Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better

So let it out and let it in, hey Jude, begin
You’re waiting for someone to perform with
And don’t you know that it’s just you, hey Jude, you’ll do
The movement you need is on your shoulder
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah yeah

Hey Jude, don’t make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better
Remember to let her under your skin
Then you’ll begin to make it better
Better – better – better – better – better – woah!

Na na na na-na-na-naa
Na-na-na-naa, hey, Jude
Na na na na-na-na-naa
Na-na-na-naa, hey, Jude

The Load-Out / Stay (Jackson Browne)

Now the seats are all empty
Let the roadies take the stage
Pack it up and tear it down
They’re the first to come and last to leave
Working for that minimum wage
They’ll set it up in another town

Tonight the people were so fine
They waited there in line
And when they got up on their feet they made the show
And that was sweet,
But I can hear the sound
Of slamming doors and folding chairs
And that’s a sound they’ll never know

Now roll them cases out and lift them amps
Haul them trusses down and ge t’em up them ramps
‚Cause when it comes to moving me
You know you guys are the champs
But when that last guitar’s been packed away
You know that I still want to play
So just make sure you got it all set to go
Before you come for my piano

But the band’s on the bus
And they’re waiting to go
We’ve got to drive all night and do a show in Chicago
Or Detroit, I don’t know
We do so many shows in a row
And these towns all look the same
We just pass the time in our hotel rooms
And wander ‚round backstage
Till those lights come up and we hear that crowd
And we remember why we came

Now we got country and western on the bus
R&B, we got disco in eight tracks and cassettes in stereo
We’ve got rural scenes and magazines
And We’ve got truckers on the cb
We’ve got Richard Pryor on the video
We got time to think of the ones we love
While the miles roll away
But the only time that seems too short
Is the time that we get to play

People you’ve got the power over what we do
You can sit there and wait
Or you can pull us through
Come along, sing the song
You know you can’t go wrong
‚Cause when that morning sun comes beating down
You’re going to wake up in your town
But we’ll be scheduled to appear
A thousand miles away from here

People stay just a little bit longer
We want to play, just a little bit longer
Now the promoter don’t mind
And the union don’t mind
If we take a little time
And we leave it all behind and sing
One more song

Oh won’t you stay
Just a little bit longer
Please please please, say you will
Say you will

Oh won’t you stay
Just a little bit longer
Oh please please please stay
just a little bit long
I bet promoters don’t mind
And the roadies don’t mind
If we take a little time
And we leave this all behind
Singing one more song
