1. LENNON LOVES

by Lennon & McCartney and John Lennon

Say the word and you’ll be free.  Say the word and be like me.
Say the word I’m thinking of.  Have you heard the word is love?
It’s so fine.  It’s sunshine.  It’s the word, Love.

T&B: In the beginning I misunderstood, but now I’ve got it, the word is good.

TUTTI: Preach the word and you’ll be free.  Preach the word and be like me.
Preach the word I’m thinking of.  Have you heard the word is love?
It’s so fine.  It’s sunshine.  It’s the word, Love.

Love Love Love, Love Love Love, Love Love Love Love Love

SOLO: There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done,
Nothing you can sing that can’t be sung,
Nothing you can say but you can learn to play the game, It’s easy.

SOLO: There’s nothing you can know that can’t be known,
Nothing that you can see that can’t be shown,
Nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be, It’s easy.

TUTTI: All you need is love.  All you need is love.  All you need is love, love.
Love is all you need.  Love Love Love Love Love Love Love

SOLO: Love is you, you and me.   Love is knowing we can be.
Love is real.  real is love.  Love is living, living love.
Love is needing to be loved.

TUTTI: I love you, well well, now and forever. (repeat)
Say the word and you’ll be free.  Say the word and be like me.
The word is Love Love Love, Love Love Love.

2. THE GLORY OF LOVE      VIDEO

by Billy Hill ©1936

You’ve got to give a little, take a little,
and let your poor heart break a little,
That’s the story of, That’s the glory of love.

You’ve got to laugh a little, cry a little
before the clouds roll by a little
That’s the story of, That’s the glory of love.

As long as there’s the two of us,
we’ve got the world in all its charms.
And when the world is through with us,
we’ve got each others arms.

You’ve got to win a little, lose a little,
and always have the blues a little,
That’s the story of, That’s the glory of love.

3. WILD MOUNTAIN THYME

Celtic Ballad

Oh the summertime is coming
And the trees are sweetly blooming
And the wild mountain thyme
Grows around the blooming heather
Will ye go, Lassie go?

CHORUS

And we’ll all go together
To pull wild mountain thyme
All around the blooming heather
Will ye go, Lassie go?

T & B: I will build my love a tower
By yon’ pure crystal fountain
And on it I will place
All the flowers of the mountain
Will ye go, Lassie go?

CHORUS

S & A: If my true love he were gone
I would surely find another
Where the wild mountain thyme
Grows around the blooming heather
Will ye go, Lassie go?

WHY DO FOOLS FALL IN LOVE?            VIDEO
by Frankie Lyman & Morris Levy ©

Why do birds sing so gay,
And lovers a-wait the break of day,
Why do they fall in love? (fall in love)
Why does the rain fall from up above,
Why do fools fall in love?
Why do they fall in love?  (fall in love)

Love is a losing game,
Love can be a shame.
I know of a fool, you see,
For that fool is me
Tell me why – – – – – – Tell me why.

Why do fools fall in love?

8. COME, COME, AGAIN (quartet)                     VIDEO

Come Come Again by John Dowland

Come again, sweet love doth now invite.

Thy graces that refrain to do me due delight.

REFRAIN: To see, to hear, to touch, to kiss, to die,

to die with thee again in sweetest sympathy.

Come again, that I may cease to mourn.

Through thy unkind disdain; For now left and forlorn.

REFRAIN

Gentle love, draw forth thy wounding dart;

Thou canst not pierce her heart; For I that do approve.

And there’s no tenderness
like before in your fingertips

TUTTI: but baby, baby I know it

CHORUS  You’ve lost that lovin’ feelin
Woh, oh, that lovin’ feelin
You’ve lost that lovin’ feelin’
Now its gone, gone, gone, woh oh oh oh

BASS: Now there’s no welcome look
in your eyes  when I reach for you

Woh, oh, that lovin’ feelin
Bring back that lovin’ feelin’
Now its gone, gone, gone,
woh oh oh oh  (repeat)

10. HELPLESS         VIDEO

Helpless!
Look into your eyes, and the sky’s the limit
I’m helpless!
Down for the count, and I’m drownin’ in ‘em

11. FIREWORK              VIDEO

by Mikkel Eriksen, Tor Erik Hermansen, Ester Dean, Katy Perry and Sandy Wilhelm

S & A: Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
Drifting thought the wind Wanting to start again?

Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
Like a house of cards One blow from caving in

TUTTI: Do you ever feel already buried deep
Six feet under scream
But no one seems to hear a thing

S & A: Do you know that there’s still a chance for you
‘Cause there’s a spark in you

TUTTI: You just gotta ignite the light
And let it shine Just own the night
Like the Fourth of July

CHORUS: ‘Cause baby you’re a firework
Come on show ’em what your worth
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh!”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you’re a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh!”
You’re gonna leave ’em fallin’ down down down

SOLO: You don’t have to feel like a waste of space
You’re original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow

Maybe a reason why all the doors are closed
So you can open one that leads you to the perfect road
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will glow
And when it’s time, you’ll know

CHORUS

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
SOLO: It’s always been inside of you, you, you
And now it’s time to let it through

CHORUS

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon (2x)

12. THE END

Yeah!  All right! Are you gonna’ be in my dream tonight?
Love you Love you

And in the end the love you take
is equal to the love you make.
