Cat Stevens Mighty Peace

How I’d love to be a child, with friends spread all around me

Playing games and running wild, with nothing more to do than to

Watch the sun make light, and watch the moon take over

From the day into the night, what mighty peace I’d find

How I’d love to be a cloud, floating high above

All the people rushing ’round, with nothing more to do

And to make the rain come down, and watch the colors change

On the earth to green from brown, what mighty peace I’d find

Cat Stevens Angel Of War

O Angel of War! What am I fighting for?

If death comes tomorrow inform me before, inform me before

O Young Soldier Boy! I’ll tell you what I know

If peace is your wish, to battle you must go, to battle you must go

O Angel of War! Please make it clear to me

Which is my side, and who is my enemy? and who is my enemy?

O Young Soldier Boy! The world is open wide

So look to wherever, the truth is forced to hide, the truth is forced to hide

O Angel of War! Within myself I see

Battle has started, what will become of me? what will become of me?

O Young Soldier Boy! You’re Wiser than you seem

Look into your heart, and keep your motives clean, and keep your motives clean

O Angel of War! What weapons do I need?

Lest I may perish, that I may succeed, that I may succeed

O Young Soldier Boy! If you protect the poor

Let truth be your armour, and justice be your sword, and justice be your sword

O Angel of War! What makes me want to fight?

I sometimes feel hatred, is it wrong or right? is it wrong or right?

O Young Soldier Boy! The war you wage

If it’s for your ego, it will die in rage, it will die in rage

O Angel of War! How can I tell for sure

Pride’s not its reason that I’m fighting for, that I’m fighting for

O Young Soldier Boy! That’s something I can’t tell

God knows you reason and you should know as well, and you should know as well

O Angel of War! When I look at me

I’m fearful to confess, the enemy I see, the enemy I see

O Young Soldier Boy! Now you can go your war

I’ll see you tomorrow, a boy you’ll be no more, a boy you’ll be no more

I love you

There’s no way you can stay home, alone, babe

Cat Stevens Banapple Gas

Banapple gas, oh Banapple gas

Everybody’s sniffing it Banapple gas

O-o alas!

All the world is stuck on it Banapple gas.

Does it do you good, make you better

Set you healthy when you’re bed-tied?

But it must be healthy

‘Cause it don’t smell.

Banapple gas, oh Banapple gas

Everybody’s living on Banapple gas

What kind of strange spice makes it right?

Well I don’t know what kind of spice

But it must be healthy ’cause it’s sterilized.

Banapple gas…Banapple gas

Give me more Banapple gas

O-o…o-o-o

Does it help you smile more to wake up

Make you happy just to be alive?

Well I don’t know if it makes you happy…

But it must be healthy

All the world is breathing Banapple gas

O-o alas!

No one knows what’s inside it Banapple gas

Oh Banapple gas.

Cat Stevens Maybe You’re Right

Now maybe you’re right and maybe you’re wrong

But I ain’t gonna argue with you no more

I’ve done it for too long.

It was getting so good why then, where did it go?

I can’t think about it no more tell me if you know.

You were loving me, I was loving you

But now there ain’t nothing but regretting

nothing, nothing but regretting everything we do.

I put up with your lies like you put up with mine,

But God knows we should have stopped somewhere,

we could have taken the time,

But time has turned, yes, some call it the end.

So tell me, tell me did you really love me like a friend?

You know you don’t have to pretend,

It’s all over now It’ll never happen again, no no no,

it’ll never happen again , it won’t happen again

Never, never, never, it’ll never happen again

No, no, no, no…..

So maybe you’re right, and maybe you’re wrong

But I ain’t gonna argue with you no more

I’ve done it for too long.

It was getting so good why then, where did it go?

I can’t think about it no more tell me if you know.

You were loving me, I was loving you

But now there ain’t nothing but regretting

nothing, nothing but regretting everything we do.

Cat Stevens Blackness Of The Night

In the blackness of the night

I seem to wander endlessly

With a hope burning out deep inside

I’m a fugitive, community has driven me out

For this bad, bad world I’m beginning to doubt

I’m alone and there is no one by my side

In the blackness of the night

I see a shadow passing by

From the heels of an old soldier boy

There’s no compromising

And his eyes are black as the sky

For this bad, bad world he is going to die

He’s alone and there is no one by his side

In the blackness of the night

I see a sparkle of a star

From the sweet silver tear of a child

And she’s clutching at a photograph of long, long ago

When her parents were happy she was too young to know

She’s alone and there is no one by her side

I’m alone and there is no one by my side

In the blackness of the night

I seem to wander endlessly

With a hope burning out deep inside

I’m a fugitive, community has driven me out

For this bad, bad world I’m beginning to doubt

I’m alone, and there is no one by my side

Cat Stevens Granny

cause this one’s really tough

oh granny, what on earth can i do?

granny, granny, what on earth can i do?

’cause this little girl, this little girl, she’s a driving me wild

she’s a driving me wild, so wild, so wild, so wild

so, granny, what on earth can i do?

granny, granny, what on earth can i do?

’cause this little girl, this little girl, she’s a driving me wild

she’s a driving me wild, so wild, so wild, so wild

Cat Stevens King Of Trees

He was the King of trees

Keeper of the leaves

A deep green god of young

Love stained memory

We used to meet by him

Far from the hustling town

I loved you

Now they’ve come to cut you down

..Down

He was the guardian of days

We held the same

Beneath the shade he gave

Shelter from the rain

Oh Lord how its empty now

With nothing save the breeze

Now they’ve come to burn the leaves

don’t burn the leaves

And if my mind breaks up

In all so many ways

I know the meaning of

The words I love you

And if my body falls inside

An early grave

The forest and the evergreens

Are coming to take me back

So slowly as I roll

Down the track

The forest and the evergreens

Are coming to take me back

The forest and the evergreens

Are coming to take me back

Please take me back

He was the King of trees

Keeper of the glades

The way he enchanted my life

Makes me so amazed

We used to meet by him

Many years ago

I love you

Now they’ve come to lay the road

don’t lay the road

Cat Stevens Two Fine People

Now that I’ve passed your test

How can I prove to you baby i’ll never let you down

If I led you around, I’m sorry

But I never meant to worry you…. no

Now that I’ve kissed your breast

How can I prove to you baby I’ll never make you sad

If I ever had , do believe your tears tears won’t come back again

I love you, though the stars may fade

And mountains turn into sand. I love you

‘Til my body changes into an old man. I love you

And the song that i sing is the only way that I can explain

La la la la la la

You know i wish for you baby nothing but good times ahead

Anything that heaven can give you, I can give you instead

La la la la la la

How could I lie to you baby, I’ll never lead you around

I’ll take care of everything you need, darling

Every little need’ll be found. I love you

Thought the time may change and snowmen sleep in the sea

And I really only want you to want me. I love you

And the song that i sing is the only way that i can explain

Now that you’ve shown your heart

I’ll be right with you baby, I’ll never leave you alone

Anywhere you want me to be honey, i’ll be there to have and to hold

And now that the clouds roll back, hold on to me baby

We’re going never to land, flying on the power of love

Flying on the power of love. I love you

Though time may fade and mountains turn into sand

I love you, ’til the very same come back to the land

I love you and the song that i sing is the only way that

i can explain

Two fine people should love each other

Two fine people should help each other

Cat Stevens The Tramp

He sleeps alone in the damp

and rests his head upon a door

the only bed he knows is the floor,

The Tramp

Turned up collar and worn out shoes

he doesn’t care ’cause he hasn’t got nothing to lose

He sleeps alone in the damp

and rests his head upon a door

the only bed he knows is the floor,

The Tramp

no companion to take him home

his only friends are the kind that just leave him alone

no one knows just how lonely his life has been

in a world that lives in a dream

He sleeps alone in the damp

and rests his head upon a door

the only bed he knows is the floor,

The Tramp
