Traditional

Corrina, Corrina
Gal, where you been so long?
Corrina, Corrina
Gal, where you been so long?
I've been worr´in´ ´bout you baby
Ever since you've been gone

The wind stopped blowing
But it's raining in my heart
I said the wind stopped blowing
But it's raining in my heart
It's bad enough on the beach but it's sure hell in the sea

Baby, baby, whatcha doing to me?
Ah baby, whatcha doing to me?
It's bad enough on the beach but it's sure hell in the sea

A Case Of The Blues
John Lennon
Albino coloured glasses wearing knock-kneed shoes
Seventh church is on his head it's on headed glue
Sales in the morning, it's a case of the blues

Albino coloured glasses shooting knock-kneed shoes
Second pair of dockers sang inside of a hood
This is the morning, a case of the blues
This is the morning, it's a case of the blues
This is the morning, it's a case of the blues

Albino coloured glasses wearing knock-kneed shoes
Sammy tries to bargain with a celephant Jew
Everyone knows it's a case of the blues
Everyone knows it's a case of the blues
Everyone knows it's a case of the blues
Everyone knows it's a case of the blues
Everyone knows it's a case of the blues

Albino coloured glasses wearing knock-kneed shoes
Driving pair of Lincoln sandals, sham leather shoe
Everyone knows it's a case of the blues
Everyone knows it's a case of the blues

Albino coloured glasses looking back-kneed shoes
Come together, sell agender, it's pleasant to choose
Everyone knows it's a case of the blues
So watch it
So long

Albino coloured glasses with a knock-kneed shoe
Merry chives departed down the celephant Jew
Everyone knows it's a case of the blues
Albino coloured glasses wearing knock-kneed shoes
Alabaster primrose, I'm sad and I'm blue
And everyone knows it's a case of the blues

Everyone Had A Hard Year
John Lennon

Everyone had a hard year
Everyone had a good time
Everyone had the boot in
Everyone saw the sun shine

Everyone had a hard year
Everyone let their hair down
Everyone pulled their socks up
Everyone put their feet down

Everyone had a hard year
Everyone put their feet up
Everyone had a face-lift
Everone had a new cup

Everyone, everyone
Everyone, everyone
Everyone, everyone

Everyone had a hard year
Everyone had a good time
Everyone had the boot in
Everyone saw the sun shine

Everyone had a hard year
Everyone let their hair down
Everyone pulled their socks up
Everyone put their feet down

Everyone had a hard year
Everyone had a good time
Everyone put their feet up
Everyone had a wrong time
