Helen Reddy Peaceful

In the morning fun when no one will be drinking any more wine

I’ll wake the sun up by givin’ him a fresh air full of the wind cup

And I won’t be found in the shadows hiding sorrow

And I can wait for fate to bring around to me any part of my tomorrow, tomorrow

’cause it’s oh, so peaceful here

There’s no one bending over my shoulder

Nobody breathing in my ear

Oh, so peaceful here

In the evening shadows are callin’ me and the dew settles in my mind

And I think of friends in the yesterday when my plans were giggled in rhyme

I had a son while on the run and his love brought a tear to my eye

And maybe some day he’ll up and say “We had a pretty nice time”, oh, oh, oh, my

’cause it’s oh, so peaceful here

There’s no one bending over my shoulder

Nobody breathing in my ear

Oh, so peaceful here

Helen Reddy Crazy Love

I can hear his heart beat for a thousand miles

And the heavens open every time he smiles

And when I come to him, that’s where I belong

Yes, I run unto him like a river’s song

He gives me love, love, love, love, crazy love

He gives me love, love, love, love, crazy love

He’s got a fine sense of humor when I’m feeling low down

And when I come to him when the sun goes down

Takes away my trouble, takes away my grief

Takes away my heartache, I go right to sleep

He gives me love, love, love, love, crazy love

He gives me love, love, love, love, crazy love

Yes, I need him in the daytime

Yes, I need him in the night

Yes, I want to throw my arms around him

Kiss him, hug him, kiss him, hug him tight

And when I’m returning from so far away

He gives me some sweet lovin’, brightens up my day

Yes, it makes me righteous, yes, it makes me whole

Yes, it makes me mellow down to my soul

He gives me love, love, love, love, crazy love

He gives me love, love, love, love, crazy love

He gives me love, love, love, love, crazy love

He gives me love, love, love, love, crazy love

He gives me love, love, love, love, crazy love

(Love, love, love, crazy love)

Helen Reddy Poor Little Fool

I used to play around

With hearts that hastened at my call

But when I met that little girl

I knew that I would fall

Poor little fool, oh yeah

I was a fool, uh huh

She played around and teased me

With her carefree devil eyes

She’d hold me close and kiss me

But her heart was full of lies

Poor little fool, oh yeah

I was a fool, uh huh

She told me how she cared for me

And that we’d never part

And so for the very first time

I gave away my heart

Poor little fool, oh yeah

I was a fool, uh huh

The next day she was gone

And I knew she’d lied to me

She left me with a broken heart

And won her victory

Poor little fool, oh yeah

I was a fool, uh huh

I’d played this game with other hearts

But I never thought I’d see

The day that someone else would play

Love’s foolish game with me

Poor little fool, oh yeah

I was a fool, uh huh

Helen Reddy I Didn’t Mean To Love You

Sunday morning waking up and touching you

You’re always warm at 9am

Pillows close and I can feel you wanting me

Then I’d go back to sleep again

I didn’t mean to love

And I never meant to care

But I guess I never noticed

Just how often you were there

Walking on and talking til the sun went down

You kept me warm with just your eyes

Seems that all we wanted just came naturally

We never even have to try

I didn’t mean to love

Didn’t want to let it show

No, I never meant to tell you

I’m just too proud to let you know

Bring back the days when we could talk away our troubles

Don’t tell me things have changed so much

Please take the time you know it’s not so hard to do

Unless there’s nothing left to say

I guess there’s nothing left to say

I didn’t mean to love

But I guess I always will

Guess you’ll always be inside me

Kind of warm and soft and still

I didn’t mean to need you

And I didn’t wanna cry

I never meant to lose you

I never meant goodbye…

I never meant goodbye…

Helen Reddy Fifty Percent

I don’t iron his shirts

I don’t sew on his buttons

I don’t know all the jokes he tells or the songs he hums

Though I may hold him all through the night

He may not be here when the morning comes

I don’t pick out his ties

Or expect his tomorrows

But I feel when he’s in my arms, he’s where he wants to be

We have no memories bittersweet with time

And I doubt if he’ll spend New Year’s Eve with me

I don’t share his name

I don’t wear his ring

There’s no piece of paper saying that he’s mine

But he says he loves me and I believe it’s true

Doesn’t that make someone belong to you?

So I don’t share his name

So I don’t wear his ring

So there’s no piece of paper saying that he’s mine

So we don’t have the memories

I’ve had enough memories

I’ve washed enough mornings

I’ve dried enough evenings

I’ve had enough birthdays to know what I want

Life is anyone’s guess

It’s a constant surprise

Though you don’t plan to fall in love

When you fall…you fall

I’d rather have fifty percent of him

Or any percent of him

Than all of anybody else at all

Helen Reddy One After 909

My baby said she’s traveling on the one after 909

I said, “Move over, honey, I’m traveling on that line”

I said move over once, move over twice

Come on, baby, don’t be cold as ice

Said she’s traveling on the one after 909

I begged her not to go and I begged her on my bended knees

You’re only fooling around, you’re fooling around with me

I said move over once, move over twice

Come on baby, don’t be cold as ice

Said she’s traveling on the one after 909

I got my bag, run to the station

Rail-man says you’ve got the the wrong location

I got my bag, run right home

Then I find I’ve got the number wrong

Well she said she’s traveling on the one after 909

I said move over honey I’m traveling on that line

I said move over once, move over twice

Come on baby, don’t be cold as ice

Said she’s traveling on the one after 9 0

Said she’s traveling on the one after 9 0

Said she’s traveling on the one after 909

Helen Reddy I Am Woman

I am woman, hear me roar

In numbers too big to ignore

And I know too much to go back and pretend

‘Cause I’ve heard it all before

And I’ve been down there on the floor

No one’s ever going to keep me down again

Whoa, yes, I am wise

But it’s wisdom born of pain

Yes, I’ve paid the price

But look how much I gained

If I have to I can do anything

I am strong (strong)

I am invincible (invincible)

I am woman

You can bend but never break me

‘Cause it only serves to make me

More determined to achieve my final goal

And I’ll come back even stronger

Not a novice any longer

‘Cause you’ve deepened the conviction in my soul

Whoa, yes, I am wise

But it’s wisdom born of pain

Yes, I’ve paid the price

But look how much I gained

If I have to I can do anything

I am strong (strong)

I am invincible (invincible)

I am woman

I am woman, watch me grow

See me standing toe-to-toe

As I spread my loving arms across the land

But I’m still an embryo

With a long, long way to go

Until I make my brother understand

Whoa, yes, I am wise

But it’s wisdom born of pain

Yes, I’ve paid the price

But look how much I gained

If I have to I can face anything

I am strong (strong)

I am invincible (invincible)

I am woman

Oh, I am woman

I am invincible

I am strong

I am woman

I am invincible

I am strong

I am woman

Helen Reddy The Happy Girls

Sally met him in the war back in 1944

He took her home to the states

His buddies thought that she was great

Subway Sally’s 51

Her man is gone her dreams are done

She rides by night the Brooklyn train

Sleeps by day to hide the pain

Lonely women of the world were the happy girls

Lonely heroes of the world seek the happy girls

Nancy saw him on the street

His shoes were shined, his suit was neat

She couldn’t see his broken mind

Behind the mask of being kind

He sleeps inside the iron bars

Nancy’s smile can’t hide the scars

Her daughter’s grown, there’s no one home

She cries all night, she’s all alone

Lonely women of the world were the happy girls

Lonely heroes of the world seek the happy girls

To tell the truth there’s no end in sight

Mr. Lonely always calls at night

Let’s hold on tight until the morning light

Terry’s gonna meet him soon

Today at school maybe noon

I hope for her it turns out right

I know she’s got a date tonight

Had my ups, had my downs

Truth was lost but truth was found

This I’ve learned the world still turns

We all get bruised, we all get burned

Lonely women of the world were the happy girls

Lonely heroes of the world seek the happy girls

Happy girls

Happy girls

Happy girls

Happy, happy, happy
