  • John Mellencamp – Hand To Hold On To (Video Edit)

    You can laugh and joke and make fun of your friends
    Spin in the middle when the troubles begin
    Take it nice and easy and always pretend
    That you’re cool, so cool, so cool

    Say I’m alone and I’m wild and I will not be tamed
    Talk like a jerk or an educated brain
    Be an old girl drivin’ the young boys insane
    Be a joker, a preacher, it does not matter

    Every one needs a hand to hold on to
    Every one needs a hand to hold on to
    Don’t need to be no strong hand
    Don’t need to be no rich hand
    Every one just needs a hand to hold on to

    Havin’ good luck with your financial situation
    Play the ponies, be president of the United Nations
    Go to work and be a Hollywood stud
    Drive your four-wheel drive right into the mud, yeah

    Every one needs a hand to hold on to
    Every one needs a hand to hold on to
    Don’t need to be no strong hand
    Don’t need to be no rich hand
    Every one just needs a hand to hold on to

    And then those hours when you’re alone
    And there’s no body there except yourself
    I know it, you wanna pick up the phone
    And say, "Talk to me, talk to me
    Somebody please talk to me"
    Yeah…ah…ah…ahhh

    Oh, yeah…ah
    Every one needs a hand to hold on to
    Every one needs a hand to hold on to
    Don’t need to be no strong hand
    Don’t need to be no rich hand
    Every one just needs a hand to hold on to

    Every one needs a hand to hold on to
    Every one needs a hand to hold on to
    Don’t need to be no strong hand
    Don’t need to be no rich hand
    Every one just needs a hand to hold on to

    Every one needs a hand to hold on to
    Every one needs a hand to hold on to
    Don’t need to be no strong hand
    Don’t need to be no rich hand
    Every one just needs a hand to hold on to


  • Musicals – Chess – Press Conference lyrics

    Reporter #1:
    Does your opponent
    Deserve such abuse?

    Frederick: [Spoken]
    All Soviets deserve abuse.

    Reporter #2:
    But even you must
    Concede he can play.

    Frederick: [Spoken]
    Sure, he’s the best red on the circuit. I’ll
    Give him that.

    Reporter #3:
    He hasn’t lost
    For a long time
    He could be a
    Tough nut to crack.

    Frederick: [Spoken]
    Listen, if he gets one game off me, it’s
    Because I want to keep press interest going.

    Reporters:
    Why do you persist
    With vicious attacks,
    Ungracious remarks re:
    Opponents?
    It smacks of a
    Lack of conviction
    Admit you’re under duress
    And that your only skill left
    Is for money, not chess.

    If Soviet life’s as grim
    As you claim,
    Then how come their boys
    Are so good at the game?
    Though you swear
    The American dream
    Is clearly the best,
    You’re no advertisement
    For life and times
    In the West.

    Reporter #4:
    Why did you risk the whole match
    Breaking down?

    Frederick: [Spoken]
    I don’t know what you’re saying. What are
    You implying?

    Reporter #5:
    All your outrageous demands,
    Your conceit.

    Frederick: [Spoken]
    I don’t see anything outrageous about demanding
    What I’m worth.

    Reporter #6:
    They pay all that you ask for,
    And then you demand even more.

    Frederick: [Spoken]
    I am the reason you’re all here. Who had heard of Sergievsky?

    Reporters:
    It’s hard to believe
    What we’re reporting.
    Why so disparaging? Frederick: [Spoken]
    Not very sporting. Are the Communist sporting? My God!
    Tell all this to the
    United Nations,
    Are you an asset to
    East-West relations?

    Frederick: [Spoken]
    What is this? What have the Russians ever done
    For East-West relations? Have you people any serious
    Questions?

    Reporter #7:
    Will you be quitting for good
    If you lose?

    Reporter #8:
    How come your second’s a girl,
    Lover boy?

    Frederick: [Spoken]
    What did you say?

    Reporter #8:
    How come your second’s a girl,
    Lover boy?

    [Freddie storms out pushing Reporter #8 out of his way]

    Reporters:
    Well, what did I say?
    He’s out of his tree
    He’s finally flipped,
    And between you and me–
    He’s no hope of retaining
    His crown in his frame of mind.
    In fact,
    He shouldn’t have come here, Florence:
    He should have resigned. Smile, you got your first

    Well, what did I say? Exclusive story.
    He’s out of his tree
    He’s finally flipped,
    And between you and me– Now you can bask in his
    He’s no hope of retaining
    His crown in his frame of mind.
    In fact, Reflected glory.
    He shouldn’t have come here,
    He should have resigned.

    If he is in this frame of mind “Naked and provoked
    He should be dumped,
    He should be resigned.

    If he is in this frame of mind Yankee aggression!”
    He should be dumped,
    He should be resigned.

    If he is in this frame of mind Oh, what a credit to
    He should be dumped,
    He should be resigned.
    Your great profession!
    Well, what did I say?
    He’s out of his mind
    He’s finally flipped,
    He should have resigned.
