Sleigh Ride - Jump 5

Winter - Currier & Ives picture



Let it snow
(x6)

Just hear those sleigh bells jingling ring, ting tingling* too
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you
Outside the snow is falling and friends are calling "Yoo hoo"
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you


Giddy yap
Giddy yap
Giddy yap
Let's go
Let's look at the show

We're riding in a wonder in the snow

Giddy yap
Giddy yap
Giddy yap
It's grand
Just holding your hand

We're gliding along with a song of a wintry fairy land


Our cheeks are nice and rosy and comfy cozy are we
We're snuggled up together like two birds of a feather would be
Let's take that road before us and sing a chorus or two
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you

It's a lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you


Let it snow
(x3)


There's a birthday party at the home of Farmer Gray
And It'll be the perfect ending of a perfect day
We'll be singing the songs we love to sing without a single stop
At the fireplace while we watch the Chestnuts Pop... Pop! Pop! Pop!

There's a happy feeling nothing in the world can buy
When they pass around the chocolate and the pumpkin pie
It'll nearly be like a picture print by Currier & Ives
These wonderful things are the things we remember all through our lives

Just hear those sleigh bells jingling ring, ting tingling too
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you
Outside the snow is falling and friends are calling "Yoo hoo"
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you


(Chorus)


It's lovely weather for a sleigh ride...

Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you

The right stuff
The right stuff

First time was a great time
Second time was a blast
Third time I fell in love
Now I hope it lasts

I can see it in your walk
Tell ’em when you talk
See it in everything you do
Even in your thoughts


You got the right stuff, baby
Love the way you turn me on
You got the right stuff, baby
You’re the reason why I sing this song


All that I needed was you
Oh girl, you’re so right
And all that I wanted was you
You made all (my dreams come true)


Chorus:
/Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
The right stuff/


Your first kiss was a sweet kiss
Second kiss had a twist
Third and your fourth kiss
I don’t wanna miss

I can see it in your walk
Tell ’em when you talk
I can see it in everything you do
Even in your thoughts


You got the right stuff, baby
Love the way you turn me on
You got the right stuff, baby
You’re the reason why I sing this song


All that I needed was you
In my life, you’re so right
And all that I wanted was you
You made all....
every one of my dreams come true


(Repeat Chorus)


Girl, yeah baby, yeah
You know you got the right stuff
And girl, yeah, baby
You know, you know you got it, girl

In my life, you’re so right
You made all....
you know what you did


(Repeat chorus and fade)

All I am - Heatwave



Who do you think you see
when you look at me?
Is it somebody strong,
somebody you could admire?

And... Who do you think I am
when I take your hand?
Are you counting on me
to fill your dreams and your desires?


Oh, all I am is lonely, just like you
All I wanna do is have one dream come true
All I am is handing you my heart
And hoping to be part of you


Who do you think you are
standing in the dark?
Are you waiting for me?
Why can't I reach you from here?

Oh, and how do I get to you?
Won't you let me through?
Don't you think maybe we
have something special to be shared?


Well, all I am is lonely like you
All I wanna do is have one dream come true
All I am is handing you my heart
And hoping to be part of you


Baby all I am is wanting to do...
All I wanna do is have one dream come true
Feel... I am is handing you my heart
And hoping to be part of you

I love The Islands - Savage

Ya huele a vacaciones
para los que puedan
hay muchas Islas por visitar...





Word! Why! Hey
Super Villan Beats
And here we go....
For the Islands from the Islands, and you know the Islands
I wanna say...
Savage is what I said!
Shake your mouth...

I wanna go back to the Islands
Back to the roots
Pack my bags up and be there soon
coconut trees and island breeze
and nothing but white sand up under my feet

Just chill, relax and just stay still
Be like baby D and walk around in a Kilt
A Kilt in Samoan it's ie lava-lava
'Cause its too hot for your jeans my brother

Its something like 100 degrees
So when it gets hot I'm deep in the sea
Put snorkels on swim in the reef
Yeah, I love water like fish when they breathe

Now I'm gonna roll like a pair of dice
Up in the plains in my paradise
Come experience that island life
C'mon it's something i know you gonna like because...


Its the one place
that everyone wants to go
Come to Trop
It's the place I get to call my home

Love the islands
I love the islands, Oh, Oh, Oh!
The one place
That I get to call my home



Back to islands, back to the motherland
Thats where mum slapped dad my brothers at
thats family bond
and when I step out the house i got my jandals on

I'm from the island of Samoa the heart of the pacific
The home of romance and passionate kisses
Hot summer breeze coming from the sea
Thats the bomb place where I wanna be

Chillin in shade iced tea and lemonade
Man I could do this like everyday
(Hell, yeah) Damn I love the islands
You don't even need money you can off the land

Build a little house than grow from that, yeah!
Everytime you leave you don't wanna come back
And when you do you don't ever wanna leave
Just stay right here and be a local like me, yeah!


(Chorus)


The Virgin Islands (I wanna go home)
Jamaica Islands
Puerto Rico Islands
Caribbean Islands

Hawai'i Islands
Samoan Islands
Tonga Islands
Fiji Islands

All of my Cook islands
Niue Islands
The Solomon Islands
Phillipian Islands

Tuvalu Islands
Evali Islands
Martinique Islands
Tahitian Islands


(Chorus)

Love the islands
I love the islands, Oh, Oh, Oh

That you know

Feels Like Tonight - Chris Daughtry




You, you got me thinking *it'll be alright
You, you told me, "Come and take a look inside"
You believed me in every single lie
But I, I failed you this time


And it feels like tonight
I can't believe I'm broken inside
Can't you see that there's nothing that I wanna do
But try to make it up to you
And it feels like tonight

Tonight


I was waiting for the day you'd come around
I was chasing, but nothing was all I found
From the moment you came into my life
You showed me what's right


(Chorus)


I never felt like this before
Just when I leave, I'm back for more
Nothing else here seems to matter

In these ever changing days
You're the one thing that remains
I could stay like this forever


(Chorus)


Like tonight (it feels like tonight)
Tonight (it feels like tonight)

'Cause there's nothing that I wanna do
But try to make it up to you
And it feels like tonight
tonight



*it'll: Se pronuncia IRIL

Michael Jackson - Hold My Hand (Duet with Akon)




This life don’t last forever (hold my hand)
So tell me what we’re waiting for (hold my hand)
Better off being together (hold my hand)
Than being miserable alone (hold my hand)

Cause I’ve been there before
And you’ve been there before
But together we can be alright

(Yeah) 'cause when it gets dark and when it gets cold
We can just hold each other till we see the sunlight

So if you just hold my hand
Baby I promise that I’ll do all I can
Things will get better if you just...
hold my hand (yeah)
Nothing can come in between us if you just
hold, hold my, hold my, hold my hand.

The nights are getting darker (hold my hand)
And there’s no peace inside (hold my hand)
So why make our lives harder (hold my hand)
By fighting love, tonight.

Cause I’ve been there before
And you’ve been there before
But together we can be alright.
Cause when it gets dark and when it gets cold
We can just hold each other till we see the sunlight

So if you just hold my hand
Baby I promise that I’ll do all I can
Things will get better if you just hold my hand
Nothing can come in between us if you just hold my hand

¿Que tanto acertaron?

Say - John Mayer



Take out of your wasted honor
Every little past frustration
Take all your so called problems
Better put them in quotations


Say what you need to say
(x8)


Walking like a one man army
Fighting with the shadows in your head
Living up the same old moment
Knowing you'd be better off instead
If you could only


Say what you need to say
(x8)


Have no fear for giving in
Have no fear for giving over
You better know that in the end
It's better to say too much
Than to never to say what you need to say again

Even if your hands are shaking
And your faith is broken
Even as the eyes are closing
Do it with a heart wide open
A wide heart


Say what you need to say
(x20)

All You Want - Seven Glory



I always thought I was the one
The one to be the one you want
And everything is perfect like the movies

I’m not afraid of letting go
But don’t get too close, take it slow
Just look around, I’m higher than the others


But what you want from me
is not what I can give
And I will give it all away

I’ll say a prayer tonight
And release this lie
'Cause all of me is all you want


The lights turn down, The music fades
I’m so exposed, the games I play
I can’t believe the rest of your outstanding

(Chorus)

The Ballad Of Peter Pumpkinhead - XTC


"Silencian a los que dicen la verdad,
pero la verdad no muere y es incontenible
se abre paso como el sol entre las nubes..."







Peter Pumpkinhead came to town
Spreading wisdom and cash around
Fed the starving and housed the poor
Showed the Vatican what gold's for


But he made too many enemies
Of the people who would keep us on our knees

Hooray for Peter Pumpkin!

Who'll pray for Peter Pumpkinhead?

Oh, my...!


Peter Pumpkinhead pulled them all
Emptied churches and shopping malls
Where he spoke, it would raise the roof
Peter Pumpkinhead told the truth


(Chorus)


Peter Pumpkinhead put to shame
Governments who would slur his name
Plots and sex scandals failed outright
Peter merely said: Any kind of love is alright


(Chorus)


Peter Pumpkinhead was too good
Had him nailed to a chunk of wood
He died grinning on live TV
Hanging there he looked a lot like you... and an awful lot like me!


(Chorus)


Hooray for Peter Pumpkin!
Who'll pray for Peter Pumpkin?
Hooray for Peter Pumpkinhead!

Oh my...!
Oh my...!

Oh, don't it make you wanna cry on?

Downtown Train - Rod Stewart



Outside another yellow moon
Has punched a hole in the night time mist
I climb through the window and down to the street
Im shining like a new dime

The downtown trains are full
Full of all them brooklyn girls
They try so hard
to break out of their little worlds

You wave your hand and they scatter like crows
They have nothing thatll ever capture your heart
Theyre just thorns without the rose
Be careful of them in the dark

Oh if I was the one
you chose to be your only one, oh baby
Can't you hear me now?
Can't you hear me now?


Will I see you tonight on a downtown train?
Every night, every night it's just the same

On a downtown train


I know your window and I know it's late
I know your stairs and your doorway
I walk down your street and past your gate
I stand by the light of the four way

And watch them as they fall, oh baby
They all having their heart attacks
They stay at the carnival
But they'll never win you back


/Will I see you tonight on a downtown train?
Every night, every night it's just the same...

(You leave me lonely)

Will I see you tonight on a downtown train?
All my dreams, all my dreams fall like rain
On a downtown train/

On a downtown train
All my dreams fall like rain
On a downtown train

Mecha Love - Hadouken




Remem-ber in days gone past
I spied you through a wall of glass

And there you were
kicking my heart back and forth
But now you're not so tough


You wanted the world
You wanted it all
(x3)

You wanted the world


So here it is
the planets cried
We'll rip the still sky
Make way when walls collide

I know what heart's
but still will reconcile your mecha love
You hold your thought so tall
You think you've got it all


You won't break my armour
I will never surrender

Take a walk
So this is the last stand

So, this is your last chance
So, this is your last...

You wanted the world
You wanted it all
(x2)


As I ready for war
My exoskeleton
I'm not a passenger, I am the carrier

I know this vessel will withstand I love your mecha love
I've got you figured out
I've got you figured out


(Chorus)

So, this is the last stand

So, this is your last chance


/Take a walk
So this is the last stand
So this is your last chance/

Miracle - Nice Stupid Playground




I feel life
I feel wonderful
I guess I’m just doing fine
Found a place called home

Then I saw you (oh oh, oh oh...)
Sitting by the crowded beach, how I wished
The colour of this life seems bright
Gotta have you


('Cause)
She said
She's gotta have me hold me close
and let me touch you heavenly
automatic blow you away

'Cause I can’t stay for now
A miracle on my side
Watch you playing
Away it will be crushed
Believe me, I will make it last


She wanted me now
Is there a place for me anywhere?
I'd rather be the one to hold
Believe me, I do


(Chorus)


Be the one hold you
Hold you tight
Feeling kinda crazy
Thought you much
(x2)

... and I won’t let quit

Si llueve te empapas... ¿Y si hace sol?... ¡También!

Super Empápate de agua...
y de música ;-)







Hey! Oh!

Hey! Oh!

Do it!


I don't wanna waste my time again
Like getting wasted with so-called friends
'Cause they don't know me
But they pretend to be part of my social scenery

And hey, maybe I'm a critic, a cynic
Or am I jaded? Or am I afraid of it?

'Cause it's dragging me down
It's bumming me out
It's making my head spin round and round...


/Can you say: Hey!
Can you say: Oh!
That's right!
What do you want from me?/

I get the feeling we're on to something
I say jump and you start jumping

Can you say hey!
Can you say oh!
That's that!
Now what do you want from me?


Just another day in the life for me
It's 3am and I can't sleep
And I've been thinking that we've been drinking
In hopes to maintain our sanity

And hey, maybe I'm a critic, a cynic
Or am I crazy? Do they all hate me?

'Cause they pick me up and throw me down
It's making my head spin round and round... Round!


(Chorus)


Everything that I do
It's never good enough for you
I do my best
Dress to impress
Wear my heart out of my chest

Going no where fast
I don't know where I'm at
When I say jump and you start jumping
Hey! We're on to something!


(Chorus)
