Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waiting for a train And I's feeling nearly as faded as my jeans. Bobby thumbed a diesel down just before it rained, It rode us all the way to New Orleans. I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red bandanna, I was playing soft while Bobby sang the blues. Windshield wipers slapping time, I was holding Bobby's hand in mine, We sang every song that driver knew. Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose, Nothing don't mean nothing honey if it ain't free, now now. And feeling good was easy, Lord, when he sang the blues, You know feeling good was good enough for me, Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee. From the Kentucky coal mines to the California sun, Hey, Bobby shared the secrets of my soul. Through all kinds of weather, through everything that we done, Hey Bobby baby kept me from the cold. One day up near Salinas, Lord, I let him slip away, He's looking for that home and I hope he finds it, But I'd trade all of my tomorrows for one single yesterday To be holding Bobby's body next to mine. Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose, Nothing, that's all that Bobby left me, yeah, But feeling good was easy, Lord, when he sang the blues, Hey, feeling good was good enough for me, hmm hmm, Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee. La la la, la la la la, la la la, la la la la La la la la la Bobby McGee. La la la la la, la la la la la La la la la la, Bobby McGee, la. La La la, la la la la la la, La La la la la la la la la, hey now Bobby now Bobby McGee yeah. Na na na na na na na na, na na na na na na na na na na na Hey now Bobby now, Bobby McGee, yeah. Lord, I'm calling my lover, calling my man, I said I'm calling my lover just the best I can, C'mon, where is Bobby now, where is Bobby McGee, yeah, Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lord Hey, hey, hey, Bobby McGee, Lord! Yeah! Whew! Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lord Hey, hey, hey, Bobby McGee.

And I wait for you Idly linger around you Surrounded by and unwanted crowd Drifting off on a perfect stare I feel those eyes Crashing down I want you to You want me, too I want… You. And yet I sit still Confused Constantly left pining over you Blinded by your lies I’m infatuated All of this madness that you created With those eyes Crashing down I want you to You want me, too I want… You. Anonymous you Oh baby I do My wild imagination set untrue Figments of you Scenarios of us two I close my eyes I feel your hands Before you get too close You. Anonymous you Notice me Make my dreams become reality What can I do I can’t say that I love you But I do I love you It keeps me coming back to… You.

At the end of my knife is your place Mine or nin is your place I've gone mad and It's my place What a fucking disgrace Infatuation's too deep But, you can't feel me Gonna hunt you down Away from she 'Cause I like you Yes, I do, Yes, I do, Yes, I do No, I love you Oooh, Yes, I do Oooooh......

Never know how much I love you Never know how much I care When you put your arms around me I get a fever that's so hard to bear You give me fever when you kiss me Fever when you hold me tight Fever in the morning Fever all through the night. Ev'rybody's got the fever that is something you all know Fever isn't such a new thing Fever started long ago Sun lights up the daytime Moon lights up the night I light up when you call my name And you know I'm gonna treat you right You give me fever when you kiss me Fever when you hold me tight Fever in the morning Fever all through the night Romeo loved Juliet Juliet she felt the same When he put his arms around her He said 'Julie, baby, you're my flame Thou giv-est fever when we kisseth Fever with the flaming youth Fever I'm afire Fever yea I burn for sooth' Captain Smith and Pocahantas Had a very mad affair When her daddy tried to kill him She said 'Daddy, o, don't you dare He gives me fever with his kisses Fever when he holds me tight Fever, I'm his misses, Oh daddy, won't you treat him right' Now you've listened to my story Here's the point that I have made Cats were born to give chicks fever Be it Fahrenheit or centigrade They give you fever when you kiss them Fever if you live and learn Fever till you sizzle What a lovely way to burn What a lovely way to burn What a lovely way to burn

Here it goes once again another sappy-ass fucking love song let it slip that I’m way more than just love sick Whoa, baby it’s been way too long it’s bittersweet Those piercing eyes never looked so tempting against my skin you left me trembling if all we had was an innocent stare I’d re-live it over and over and over again Forever Can’t get the thought of you out of my mind despite all the shit that you do why are you so far away? All alone, I’m left here to stay Its bittersweet Those piercing eyes never looked so tempting against my skin you left me trembling If all we had was an innocent stare I’d re-live it over and over and over again Forever Racing, pounding machine gun in my chest I’m melting at your feet Baby, what a mess Secretly, I’m yours A secret far too hard for me to keep It’s bittersweet
