Labelle Without You In My Life

How could we say it’s over

When it’s not over (baby)

How could you hold me in your arms

And say you won’t miss me when I’m gone

[Chorus:]

I don’t wanna talk about it

I don’t wanna think about it

I don’t wanna dream about it

I don’t wanna cry about it

Without you in my life I would be so lonely

Without you in my arms I would feel so empty

Without you in my life

What can I say?

Tell me what more can I do

You know I… you know I… I love you

I can’t pretend… I’m not that strong

I’d move heaven and earth to right what’s … what’s wrong

I said what’s wrong … oh oh

[Chorus:]

I don’t wanna talk about it

I don’t wanna think about it

I don’t wanna dream about it

I don’t wanna cry about it

Without you in my life I would be so lonely

Without you in my arms I would feel so empty

Without you in my life

If only you can see what I see

(if you can only see what I see)

The love I see in your eyes

(your eyes)

You’ll always be a part of me

I know that we’ll still have the magic we can’t deny

(I don’t want to go)

[Chorus:]

I don’t wanna talk about it

I don’t wanna think about it

I don’t wanna dream about it

I don’t wanna cry about it

Without you in my life I would be so lonely

Without you in my arms I would feel so empty

Without you

Oh you don’t know what you do to me… no you don’t

I said you don’t have a clue what you mean to me

I said you you you … don’t you know, don’t you know I can’t think without you

Don’t you know… I said I can’t dream… dream without you baby

(Without you in my life… without you in my life… without you in my life)

I don’t wanna think about it without you

Labelle Dear Rosa

Said I’ve got something to say

My dear lady,

Dear Rosa,

I want to say what’s on my mind

I’m writing you a letter

With love and hope in every line

I try not to think about the pain

But how your sacrifice will reign

Dear Rosa,

Who would believe?

So hot and tired

What made you decide?

That you would rather die

Than just stand so someone else could ride

And prove that lie again

That the color of our skin made us less than other men

Dear Rosa,

Sit down servant

Come on in

How long? Will this hate go on?

Change our lives and now you’re gone

Somebody said, and still the cross is burned.

Dear Rosa,

The spirit will yearn.

Sitting down in the front of the bus

You made a stand for all of us

You didn’t move when they called you names

You knew that a mind was the hardest thing to change.

Living in a line, your freedom denied,

After Malcolm, Martin and John gave their life.

Dear Rosa,

It’s so hard not to cry

Dear Rosa,

You didn’t live to see the day we talked to one another

Regardless of the color of our skin

Or the gods we believed in

When I look around and see people filled with pain

Dear Rosa,

How did you keep your faith?

Yes, tell me

How long, will this go on?

You changed our lives

Now your gone away, goneeeeeeee

Somebody says, and still the cross is burned.

Dear Rosa,

The spirit will yearn.

[Chorus: (Background)]

Dear Rosa,

Oh we miss you yes, yes we do

Uh huh, oh the trials and troubles

Regardless of the right things to do

Rosa,

What a wonderful woman

I am so glad

Rosa, you sat down.

[Chorus: (Background)]

Rosa, tell will we ever ride

Where would I be, Rosa if you did not believe

Keep the memory; you’ve been a blessing to me

I want the world to sing, oh

[Chorus: (Background)]

Rosa oh, you have been good to me

Change our lives

Oh the pride that I feel and I know that it?s real

Somebody say, hey hey

Dear Rosa,

You sat on down

I’ll keep saying it

Yes you did

Tell me somebody

Dear Rosa [repeat 6X’s]

[Chorus:]

Rosa, I don’t know where I’d be, but I know yes indeed.

Change our lives, and the pride that I feel, yes I know that it’s real.

Somebody say, Dear Rosa,

Labelle Tears For The World

Sanity for the world, I feel it deep down in my soul

When I think about all the things we’re going through

So much misery and sadness, so much pain

It’s just insane, I’m telling you

Over in Europe and Asia, the violence is contagious

What about Africa?

People starving, they got no food

So much hate so much grief, so much jealously

Said it makes you wanna cry, cry, cry

Cry, cry, cry, cry, cry, cry

Oh, tears for the world

I’m boo hoo, in tears for the world

There’s go to be something we can do

When I think about all the lies that’s been told

All the slaves that’s been sold

Children robbed of the gift of life

Oh, it just ain’t right

North and south America

Shoot outs in the schools

In Australia people are struggling to survive

Everywhere there’s earthquakes, Katherina

Tornadoes, fires

It only makes you wanna cry, cry, cry

Tears for the world

Old caps are melting in the Antarctica

The water is rising

One day it’s hot, next day it’s cold

Everybody sing

Have mercy, have mercy, have mercy on the world, Lord

Have mercy, have mercy, have mercy on the world, Lord

Soldiers laying down their lives so we can be free

But who cries for them if not you and me

Shed some tears for the world for all the children

Who have nothing to eat, no place to sleep

No mother, no father, no sister, no brothers

It makes you wanna cry, cry, cry, cry

Oh, it makes you wanna cry, cry, cry

Tears for the world

Have mercy, have mercy, have mercy on the world, Lord

Have mercy, have mercy, have mercy on the world, Lord

Have mercy, have mercy, have mercy on the world, Lord

Have mercy, have mercy, have mercy on the world, Lord

Have mercy, have mercy, have mercy on the world, Lord

Have mercy, have mercy, have mercy on the world, Lord

Have mercy, have mercy, have mercy on the world, Lord

Have mercy, have mercy, have mercy on the world, Lord

Labelle Roll Out

Ladies! Ladies! there comes a time in your life

When you gotta do somethings

That you never thought you would have to do

I ain’t your superwoman, I ain’t your wonder woman

I ain’t gonna wash your clothes, I ain’t the floor you’re walking on

I’m gonna keep the car, stop caring where you are

Buy you own cigarets, walk your own pets, I’m out the door

Tonight when you come home, I will be gone

Ladies (ladies ladies)

Tonight ain’t gotta fight I’ll be Alright

I’ve seen the light

[Chorus:]

When you turn on your radio and you hear her voice

You will know that she made her choice

This ain’t another love song bout who done you wrong

Man she talkin bout she gotta roll out

She gotta roll out [x14] Roll [x8]

Ladies if you feel me let me see your hands up

(hands up hands up)

When your hands in the air like you just don’t care

Keep waving them girls I know I know

Tonight when you come home, I will be gone

Ladies (ladies ladies)

Tonight ain’t gotta fight I’ll be Alright

I’ve seen the light

[Chorus:]

When you turn on your radio and you hear her voice

You will know that she made her choice

This ain’t another love song bout who done you wrong

Man she talkin bout she gotta roll out

She gotta roll out [x14] Roll [x8] Roll Out [x4]

You took me for granted

All that pain drove me nearly insane

I can’t take it anymore

That’s why I’m out the door

Tonight when you come home, I will be gone

Ladies (ladies ladies)

Tonight ain’t gotta fight I’ll be Alright

I’ve seen the light

[Chorus:]

When you turn on your radio and you hear her voice

You will know that she made her choice

This ain’t another love song bout who done you wrong

Labelle Lady Marmalade

Hey Sister, Go Sister, Soul Sister, Go Sister [x2]

He met Marmalade down in Old New Orleans

Struttin’ her stuff on the street

She said ‘Hello,

Hey Joe, you wanna give it a go?

‘Mmm Hmmm Gitchi Gitchi Ya Ya Da Da [? ]

Mocca chocolata Ya Ya

Creole Lady Marmalade

Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?

Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?

He savored her cool

While she freshed up

That boy drank all that magnolia wine

On the black satin sheets where

He started to freak

Gitchi Gitchi Ya Ya Da Da

Gitchi Gitchi Ya Ya Here

Mocca chocalata Ya Ya

Creole Lady Marmalade

Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?

Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?

Heh, Heh, Hehhhh

Seeing her skin feeling silky smooth

Colour of cafe au lait

Made the savage beast inside

Roaring till it cried More, More, More

Now he’s at home doing 9 to 5

Living his brave life of lies

But when he turns off to sleep

All memories keep More, More, More

Gitchi Gitchi Ya Ya Da Da Da

Gitchi Gitchi Ya Ya here

Mocca chocolata Ya Ya

Creole Lady Marmalade

Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?

Labelle Superlover

Night falls and I’m calling out your name

And you’re right where I want you to be

Tears turns to stars in my eyes

And your love is an old mystery

Super lover, I wonder

Does every other lover in the world

Make each other feel the way you make me feel?

I think I’m going insane

You bring out the need in me

Never felt such joy or such pain

I know I ought to go but I just can not leave

Super lover, I wonder

Does every other lover in the world

Make each other feel the way you make me feel?

Never knew anybody like you

No one can move me like you do

Love on top of love

More love than I ever dreamed of

Baby, baby won’t you touch me, hug me

Make me, make me, drive me crazy?

Super lover, I wonder

Does every other lover in the world

Make each other feel the way you make me feel?

Super lover, I wonder

Any other lover in the world

Make each other feel the way you make me feel?

Super lover, I wonder

Does every other lover in the world

Labelle Miss Otis Regrets

Miss Otis regrets she’s unable to lunch today

Madam Miss Otis regrets she’s unable to lunch today

And she’s sorry to be delayed

But last evening down at lover’s lane she strayed

Madam Miss Otis regrets she’s unable to lunch today

When she woke up and found that her dream of love was gone

Madam, she ran to the man who had lead her so far astray

And from under her velvet gown

She drew a gun and shot her lover down

Madam Miss Otis regrets she’s unable to lunch today

When the mob came and got her and dragged her from the jail

Madam, they strung her up on the willow across the way

And the moment before she died

She lifted up her lovely head and cried

“Madam, Miss Otis regrets she’s unable to lunch

Miss Otis regrets she’s unable to lunch today”
