Lady Madonna

See how they run
Lady Madonna, children at your feet
Wonder how you manage to make ends meet
Saturday morning arrives without a suitcase
Sunday morning creep in like a nun
Friday's child forget to tie his suitcase
See how they run
Lady Madonna, children at your feet
Wonder if you're having fun making ends meet

Written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney




Lawdy Miss Clawdy

Well lawdy, lawdy, lawdy miss clawdy
Girl you sure look good to me
But please don't excite me baby
I know it can't be me
Well as a girl you want my money
Yeah but you just won't treat me right
You like to ball every morning
Don't come home till late at night
Oh gonna tell, tell my mama
Lord, I swear girl what you been to me
I'm gonna tell everybody that I'm down in misery
So bye, bye, bye, baby
Girl, I won't be comin' no more
Goodbye little darlin' down the road I'll go
So, bye, bye, bye baby
Girl, I won't be comin' no more
Goodbye little darlin' down the road I'll go

Written by Lloyd Price



Lead Me, Guide Me

Lead me oh Lord, won't you lead me
I am tired and I need Thy strength and power
To guide me over my darkest hour
For just open my eyes that I may see
Lead me oh Lord, won't you lead me
Lead me, guide me along the way
For if you lead me I cannot stray
Or just open my eyes that I may see
Lead me oh Lord, won't you lead me
I am lost if you take your hand from me
I am blind without try light to see
Lord just always let me Thy servant be
Lead me oh Lord, won't you lead me
Lead me, guide me along the way
For if you lead me I cannot stray
Lord just open my eyes that I may see
Lead me oh Lord, won't you lead me

Written by Doris Akers



Let It Be Me

God bless the day I found you
I want to stay around you
And so I beg you
Let it be me
Don't take this heaven from one
If you must cling to someone
Now and forever 
Let it be me
Each time we meet love,
I find complete love
Without your sweet love
Tell me, what would life be?
So never leave me lonely
Tell me you love me only
And that you'll always
Let it be me

Written by Curtis, Delanoe and Becaud



Let Me

Whenever I dance with the girl I love
My head goes round and round
When she's close to me
I can't stay on the ground
Whenever I dance with the girl I love
I never have a care
All night I'm so light
I walk right on the air
Oh let me, oh honey let me
Let me do what you know I love to do
Please take another chance and let me
Let me have another dance with you
Whenever I feel those pretty arms
Reaching round about
That feeling goes to my toes
And all the lights go out, go out, go out
Whenever I see those eyes of blue
Smiling up so shy
I'm in such a spin I take right off and fly
So let me, oh honey let me
Let me do what you know I love to do
Please take another chance and let me
Let me have another dance with you
So let me dance in the arms I love
Thrill me through and through
I'm so drunk with love
That all I see is you
I never hear the music play
I never see the crowd
Only you and me
Dancing on a cloud
Oh let me, oh honey let me
Let me do what you know I love to do
Please take another chance and let me
Let me have, another dance, with you

Written by Vera Matson and Elvis Presley



Let Me Be There

Wherever you go
Wherever you may wonder in your life
Well surely you know, I always wanna be there
Holding your hand
And standing by to catch you when you fall
Seeing you through, in everything you do
I said let me be there in your morning
Let me be there in your night
Let me change whatever's wrong and make it right
Let me take you to that wonderland that only two can share
All I ask you, is let me be there
Watching you grow
And going through the changes in your life
That's how I know, I always wanna to be there
Whenever you feel you need a friend to lean on
Here I am
Whenever you call, you know I'll be there
I said let me be there in your morning
Let me be there in your night
Let me change whatever's wrong and make it right
Let me take you to that wonderland that only two can share
All I ask you, is let me be there
Let me be there in your morning
Let me be there in your night
Let me change whatever's wrong and make it right
Let me take you to that wonderland that only two can share
All I ask you, is let me be there
All I ask you is let me be there
I said let me be there in your morning
Let me be there in your night
Let me change whatever's wrong and make it right
Let me take you to that wonderland that only two can share
All I ask you, is let me be there
All I ask you is let me be there

Written by Rostill



Let's Be Friends

Don't be afraid, you and I were made the same little one
And I know what it's like when you feel left out of the game little one
But if you take this helping hand that I lift
Then we can smile together, let's be friends
The world that you see may seem to be a mystery to you
The night may be dark but hope very hard and dreams can come true
You live in silence but for once let's pretend
We're talking here together, let's be friends
You're not alone, I've always known that we'd get along
And someone I know says life is good and He can't be wrong
There's fun and laughter just waiting round the bend
Let's find them now together, let's be friends
Let's find them now together, let's be friends

Written by Arnold, Morrow and Martin



Let's Forget About The Stars

If you let the stars keep telling you
Who to love and not to love
You may never find contentment for your heart
You could go unloved forever and darling that means never
Surrender to love, let's forget about the stars
You say that stars have promised you true love ten thousand times
But here you are with a broken heart and mind
I can tell you want to love me from the beating in your heart
Surrender to love, let's forget about the stars
Let's forget about the stars, come follow me my dove
To a world just like the world that you've been dreaming of
Let's not wait too long for something might go wrong
Surrender to love, let's forget about the stars
Let's forget about the stars
Let's forget about the stars
Let's forget about the stars

Written by Owens



Let Us Pray

Come praise the Lord for He is good
Mmm come join in love and brotherhood
We'll hear the word and bring our gifts of bread and wine
And we'll be blessed beneath the sign
So let us pray together, pray together
Pray with the one mighty voice (heavenly voice)
And let us sing together, sing together 
Pray and we'll rejoice (we'll rejoice)
When strangers reach out for your hand (for your hand)
Respond to them and understand (heaven obeyed to understand)
We'll rise as one to calm the storm outside the gate (calm the storm)
With faith in Him we'll never leave (never leave)
So let us pray together, pray together
Pray with the one mighty voice (heavenly voice)
And let us sing together, sing together 
Pray and we'll rejoice (we'll rejoice)

And we must give our brothers love
So let us pray together, pray together
Pray with the one mighty voice (heavenly voice)
And let us sing together, sing together 
Pray and we'll rejoice (we'll rejoice)
Love for all, love for all to the Lord
We'll rejoice love for all to the Lord
We'll rejoice love for all to the Lord
We'll rejoice for the Lord

Let Yourself Go

Well baby I'm gonna teach you what love's all about tonight
Trust me honey everything's gonna be all right
You gotta do like I do there ain't nothing to it
Listen to me baby anybody can do it
All you gotta do is just let yourself go
Now don't be afraid just relax and take it real slow
Cool it baby you ain't got no place to go
Just put your arms around me real tight
Enjoy yourself baby don't fight
All you gotta do is just let yourself go
All you need is just a little rehearsal
The first thing that you know
You'll be ready for the grand finale
So come on baby let's go
Let's go, let's go' let's go
Let's go
Take a real deep breath and put your warm red lips on mine
Just do like I tell you, everything's gonna be just fine
Kiss me nice and easy, take your time
Baby I'm the only one here in line
All you gotta do is just let yourself go
Let yourself go right now Yeh! let yourself go
Let yourself go right now Yeh! let yourself go
Yeh! let yourself go
All you gotta do is just let yourself go

Life

Somewhere out in empty space, 
long before the human race,
Something stirred,
A vast and timeless source began,
Intelligence was born and then, 
there was the world,
Powers filled the universe, 
matter formed and broke the curse,
Of nothingness,
Love became an ageless soul, 
nature reached her highest goal,
And breathed the breath of life,
Everlasting life.
Well creatures come from out of sight,
Daylight came from in the night, 
and all was good,
Life became a masterplan,
Love produced the perfect man, 
that understood,
The image of the makers word, 
worshipped him with all he had,
But then one day,
From in the depths an evil seed, 
grew and manufactured greed,
That changed the way of life,
Everlasting life,
Oh the loving power looked and saw,
Inside the heart of man a flaw, 
began to grow,
Well, the fires of hell began to burn, 
and so he sent his chosen son,
To let us know,
That love had surely made us all, 
and hate would surely make us fall,
So from the cross,
Well he showed the world that dreadful day,
That love could be the only way, 
or all is lost of life,
Everlasting life,
For life is love,
And love is life.

Written by Milete



Like A Baby

You gave me love to enjoy
Like a bright shiny toy to a baby
No matter what you would do
I depended on you like a baby
One thing I know I love you
Yes I loved you like a baby
It was a fool that you took
And I think 'cause you look like a baby
To lover's ways I was blind
'Cause I just had a mind like a baby
You're just a flirt
And I had to be her guide like a baby
I need you so, I need you so
The day I found I am alive
Then I broke down and cried like a baby
Well it was then I could see
You were playing with me like a baby
Well you can bet that some day
I'll forget just like a baby

Written by Jesse Stone



Little Cabin On A Hill

Tonight I知 alone without you my dear
It seems that there's a longing for you still
Oh but I just keep it there so I won't be alone
In our little cabin on the hill
Oh someone has taken you from me
And left me here all alone
To listen to the rain beat on our window pane
In our little cabin on the hill

Written by Monroe and Flat



Little Darlin'

Little darlin', little darlin'
Oh where, are you, oo oo oo oo
Walla walla chipa mocka mogga 
Oh my lover, oh just for you, only you
My darling, I need you
Darling I need you to call my own
To hold your life, your little foot, your hand
I knew someone would understand that
Hold my hand
My dear, I would run
To find without you
Oo oo oo oo oo
Oh, oo oo oo
That my love was just for you, 'n only you

Written by M. Williams



Little Egypt

I went and bought myself a ticket and I sat down in the very first row
They pulled the curtain but then when they turned the spotlight way down low
Little Egypt came out a-struttin' wearin' nothin' but a button and a bow
Singing, ying-ying, ying-ying, ying-ying, ying-ying
She had a ruby on her tummy and a diamond big as Texas on her toe
She let her hair down and she did the hoochie-coochie real slow
When she did her special number on the zebra skin I thought she'd stop the show
Singing, ying-ying, ying-ying, ying-ying, ying-ying
She did her triple somersault and when she hit the ground
She winked at the audience and then she turned around
She had a picture of a cowboy tatooed on her spine
Said, Phoenix, Arizona 1949
Yeh, let me tell you people Little Egypt doesn't dance there anymore
She's too busy mopping and a-takin' care of shopping at the store
'Cos we've got seven kids and all day long they crawl around the floor
Singing ying-ying, ying-ying, ying-ying, ying-ying

Written by Leiber and Stoller



Little Sister

Well, I dated your big sister
And took her to a show
I went for some candy
Along came Jim Dandy
And they snuck right out of the door
Ev'ry time I see your sister
Well she's got somebody new
She's mean and she's evil
Like that old Boll Weevil
Guess I'll try my luck with you
Well, I used to pull your pigtails
And pinch your turned-up nose
But you been a growin'
And baby, it's been showin'
From your head down to your toes
Little sister, don't you
Little sister, don't you
Little sister, don't you kiss me once or twice
Then say it's very nice
And then you run
Little sister, don't you
Do what your big sister done

Written by Pumas and Shuman



Lonely Man

It's a lonely man 
Who wanders all around
It's a lonely man 
Who roams from town to town
Searchin', always searchin'
For something he can't find
Hopin', always hopin'
That some day fate will be kind
It's a lonely man 
Who travels all alone
When he has no one
That he can call his own
Always so unhappy
Taking shelter where he can
Here I am
Come meet a lonely, lonely man
Always so unhappy
Taking shelter where he can
Here I am
Come meet a lonely, lonely man
Here I am
Come meet a lonely, lonely man

Written by Marcus and Benjamin



Lonesome Cowboy

I am just a lonesome cowboy
And I知 travelling all alone
I ain't even got a nickel
To call my baby on the phone
Just beyond the mountain lies a city
And I hear it calling me
Saddle up and ride you lonesome cowboy
Here is where you'll find your destiny
In my dreams the lights shine bright and pretty
Near to me and yet so far
Will I always be a lonesome cowboy
Am I only reaching for a star
Ride. Ride, ride, ride along cowboy
Sing, sing, sing, sing a song cowboy
Will I ever leave this lonesome valley
Really see the lights that shine
Gotta find what lies beyond the mountain
Gotta rope and tie that dream of mine
I am just a lonesome cowboy
And I知 travelling all alone
If you don't call me baby
Then I知 never coming home

Written by Bennett and Tepper



Long, Black Limousine

There's a long line of mourners
Driving down our little street
Their fancy cars are such a sight to see, oh yea
They're all rich friends who knew you in the scene
And now they've finally brought you
Brought you home to me
When you left you know you told me
That some day you'd be returnin'
In a fancy car, all the town to see, oh yea, 
Well now everyone is watching you
You finally had your dream, yea
You're ridin' in a long black limousine
You know the papers told of how you lost your life, oh yea
The party, the party and the fatal crash that night
Well the race along the highway, oh the curve you didn't see
When you're riding in that long black limousine
Through tear filled eyes I watch as you pass by oh yea
A chauffeur, a chauffeur at the wheel dressed up so fine
Well I never, I never, never, never 
Oh my heart, all my dreams yea, they're with you
In that long black limousine

Written by George and Stovell



Long Legged Girl

All right
I've been thumbin' rides travellin' light
Walked the streets till past midnight
Trampin' roads, trails and lanes
Scaling cliffs fields and plains
Searchin' till the early dawn
For that long legged girl with the short dress on
Riding trucks, bikes and skis
Sailing lakes and brooks and seas
Driving wagons, cars and jeeps
Walking stilts in ten foot leaps
Searchin' till the early dawn
For that long legged girl with the short dress on
And everywhere I go she's been and gone
She's fine, it's just too bad she's the travellin' kind
So fine, I just can't rest till I make her mine
I've been from Maine to Tennessee, Mexico from Wahkiki
Rain or shine, sleet or snow
Searchin' high, searchin' low
Everything depends upon
That long legged girl with the short dress on
She's fine, it's just too bad she's the travellin' kind
So fine, I just can't rest till I make her mine
I've been from Maine to Tennessee, Mexico from Wahkiki
Rain or shine, sleet or snow
Searchin' high, searchin' low
Everything depends upon
That long legged girl with the short dress on
The long legged girl with the short dress on

Written by McFarland



Long, Loneley Highway

It's a long lonely highway when you're travellin' all alone
And it's a mean old world when you got no-one to call your own
And you pass through towns too small to even have a name, oh yes
But you gotta keep on goin', on that road to nowhere
Gotta keep on goin', though there's no-one to care
Just keep movin' down the line
It's a long lonely highway without her by my side
And it's a trail full of teardrops that keep on being cried
My heart's so heavy it's a low down dirty shame oh yes
You gotta keep on goin', on that road to nowhere
Gotta keep on goin', though there's no-one to care
Just keep movin' down the line
I gotta rock for my pillow 'neath a weeping willow
And the cool grass for my bed
My drinking water's muddy so don't you tell me buddy
That I wouldn't be better off dead
It's a long lonely highway gettin' longer all the time
And if she don't come and get me
Well, I'm gonna lose my mind
So if you read about me tell her she's the one to blame, oh yes
You gotta keep on goin', on that road to nowhere
Gotta keep on goin', though there's no-one to care
Just keep movin' down the line
Movin' down the line
Movin' down the line

Written by Pomus and Shuman



Long, Tall Sally

Gonna tell Aunt Mary 'bout Uncle John
He says he has the blues but
He has a lotta fun
Oh baby, yes baby, whoo-oo-oo-oo baby
Havin' some fun tonight yeah well!
Long tall Sally has a lot on the ball
And nobody cares if she's long and tall
Oh baby, yes baby, whoo-oo-oo-oo baby,
I'm having me some fun tonight
Well, I saw uncle John
With long tall Sally
He saw Aunt Mary comin'
And he ducked back in the alley
Oh baby, yes baby, whoo-oo-oo-oo baby

We've gonna have some fun tonight
Gonna have some fun tonight
We're gonna have some fun tonight
Everything will be all right
We're gonna have some fun
Gonna have some fun tonight

Look Out Broadway

We never got discouraged, we never had a doubt
'Cos sooner or later talent must win out
Look out Broadway, we're comin' fast
Now we're gonna see our names in lights at last
No more hot dogs at Sloppy Joe's
We're gonna dine on steak and wine at Del Monaco's
Rich or poor it's great to have dough
That's one thing we know
Lots of fun, lots of laughs
Signing cheques and contracts and autographs
We're up for N-E-W Y-O-R-K
Look out, look out Broadway
I wanna see all the hustle and bustle
Maybe I can get a date with Lilian Russell
I want to go out with Diamond Jim
Yeh, if he gives you a diamond what will you give to him
Blow the trumpets and beat on the drum
Big time here we come
No more cheap hotels and one night stands
We'll knock Tin Pan Alley flat on its pans
They'll see that we've got class with a capital K
Look out, look out Broadway
Look out!

Written by Wise and Starr



Love Coming Down

I remember how your eyes used to light up
Over promises that I made
But for the first time in my life
I know now how it feels to be afraid
I don't know what I壇 do if you go away
This would sure be one lonely old town
For a man's so busy going up in the world
That he couldn't see love coming down
Love coming down
I remember all the times you told me
Love's all that matters to you
And looking back now, wondering how I believed
I had things more important to do
I can see how I must have looked to you
Like some fool on a merry-go-round
And that a man's so busy going up in the world
That he couldn't see love going down
Love going down
Can't you see how everything I致e learned
Would just be wasted if you leave me
If you just give one more try
I swear I値l always be here when you need me
If you can find it in your heart to forgive me
I'll try to keep both my feet on the ground
But if a man's so busy going up in the world
That he couldn't see love coming down
Love coming down

Written by Jerry Chesnut



Love Letters

Love letters straight from your heart
Keep us so near while apart
I'm not alone in the night
When I can have all the love you write
I memorize ev'ry line
I kiss the name that you sign
And darlin, then I read again right from the start
Love letters straight from your heart

Written by Heyman and Young



Love Me

Treat me like a fool,
Treat me mean and cruel,
But love me.
Wring my faithful heart,
Tear it all apart,
But love me.
If you ever go,
Darling, I'll be oh so lonely
I'll be sad and blue,
Crying over you, dear only.
I would beg and steal
Just to feel your heart 
Beatin' close to mine
Well, if you ever go,
Darling, I'll be oh so lonely
I'll be sad and blue,
Crying over you, dear only.
I would beg and steal
Just to feel your heart 
Beatin' close to mine
Well, if you ever go,
Darling, I'll be oh so lonely
Beggin' on knees,
All I ask is please, please love me
Oh yeah

Love Me, Love The Life I Lead

I am not a wise man neither am I a fool
But what I am the way the good Lord made me
Though I need you more than you may ever understand
I can't wear a face that will betray me
Oh, If you're gonna love me, love the life I lead
Need the things I need, don't try to change me
If you're gonna take me, take me for what I am
I can't be another man, I can't be free
'Cos The life I lead is the life I lead
Money in my pocket never seems to last too long
I've gambled on the way and drowned my sorrows
Though God knows I can't pretend it's better on my own
I can't promise you a new tomorrow
Oh, If you're gonna love me, love the life I lead
Need the things I need, don't try to change me
If you're gonna take me, take me for what I am
I can't be another man, I can't be free
'Cos The life I lead is the life I lead

Love Me Tender

Love me tender, 
love me sweet, 
never let me go. 
You have made my life complete,
and I love you so.

Love me tender, 
love me true, 
all my dreams fulfilled.
For my darlin' I love you,
and I always will.

Love me tender, 
love me long,
take me to your heart.
For it's there that I belong,
and we'll never part.

Love me tender, 
love me dear,
tell me you are mine.
I'll be yours through all the years,
till the end of time.

Written by Very Matson and Elvis Presley



Love Me Tonight

May this tenderness cling
When the fire of Spring
Is a memory
May you still be my own
When a hundred years have flown

But if it can't be
Give this moment to me
While our dream is bright
Put your sweet arms around me
And love me tonight
Love me tonight
Let me feel your lips on mine

And though I pray
Forever and a day I'll be
Possessing you
I'll confess to you

If I knew that our love would be gone
With the stars in the dawn's grey light
I'd still hold you close and whisper
Love me tonight

Written by Don Robertson



Lover Doll

Lover doll, oh lover doll 
Lover doll, lover doll 
You're the cutest lover doll
That I ever did ever see
Let me tell you lover doll

You were meant, just meant for me
On the first time that I saw you
How I fell for your cuddly charms
Lover doll I'm crazy for you
Let me rock you in my arms

I'm so glad I found you
Never thought dollies came full grown
I'm gonna tie a ribbon around you
Wrap you up and take you home

I would never treat you badly
Like a cast away broken toy
Lover doll I love you madly
Let me be your lover boy

I'm so glad I found you
Never thought dollies came full grown
I'm gonna tie a ribbon around you
Wrap you up and take you home

I would never treat you badly
Like a cast away broken toy
Lover doll I love you madly

Let me be your lover boy
Lover doll, lover doll 
Lover doll, lover doll
Lover doll, lover doll
Let me be your lover boy

Love Song Of The Year

I used to laugh when I should cry
I used to let these feelings pass me by
But now that I believe them
I got no-one to leave them to me
You see I traded love for what I thought must be free

So I confess my loneliness
And I guess I've lost the best of the year
That I have lost it through my fingers like a golden breath of air
If I cared I wouldn't be singing this love song of the year
I know the time cannot erase the days
Love is past and I've gone away
From now on I'll make it very clear

Cos' I don't want to write
Another love song of the year
It's a lonely song and not too clear
But to me it's very dear
I guess this song can only be
My feelings went out in the sea of love

To me this has got to be the love song of the year
I know the time cannot erase the days
Love is past and I've gone away
From now on I'll make it very clear
Cos' I don't want to write

Another love song of the year
I used to laugh I used to cry
I used to laugh, these feelings passed me by
From now on I'll make it very clear cos' I don't want to write
Another love song of the year

Written by Christian



Lovin' Arms

If you could see me now
The one who said that he would rather roam
The one who said he'd rather be alone
If you could only see me now
If I could hold you now
Just for a moment, if I could really make you mine
Just for a while turn back the hands of time
If I could only hold you now

'Cause I've been too long in the wind
Too long in the rain
Takin' any comfort that I can
Looking back and longing for the freedom of my chains
And lying in your lovin' arms again

If you could hear me now
Singin' somewhere in the lonely night
Dreaming of the arms that hold me tight
If you could only hear me now
'Cause I've been too long in the wind

Takin' any comfort that I can
Looking back and longing for the freedom of my chains
And lying in your lovin' arms again
I can almost feel your lovin' arms again.

Written by Tom Jans



Loving You

I will spend my whole life through
loving you, loving you.
Winter, summer, spring-time, too,
loving you, loving you.
Makes no difference where I go or what I do.
You know that I'll always be loving you.

If I'm seen with someone new,
don't be blue, don't be blue.
I'll be faithful I'll be true;
always true, true to you.
There is only one for me, and you know who.
You know that I'll always be loving you.

Written by Leiber and Stoller
