Supertramp Another Man’s Woman

If there’s no way of knowing where’s the answer,

You should know if you need me by now, tell me how.

You saw me in the first place,

Who d’you think I am

How can you be so two-faced

And tell me where I stand

Yeah, we’ve been here once before,

I see you by the door,

You said you knew and all were calling,

Yeah, you know you just can’t lose,

All you have to do is choose, let me in on where your heart is.

You ain’t nothing but another man’s woman,

Living on another man’s land;

At night I hear a hound dog callin,

A callin’ me a cheatin’ man.

I tell you somethin’, I need good lovin’, but you don’t understand,

At night I see you cannonball comin’

To blow me to the promised land.

If there’s no-way of showing where your love lies,

Is it me?, is it him?, or no-one;

What will be done?

About the mess you made me,

Oh don’t you give a damn,

You’re gonna drive me crazy,

It’s more than I can stand,

‘Round and ’round we always go

First it’s yes and then it’s no,

Oh whatever keeps me sane?

I’m so helpless, can’t you see?

Did you cast a spell on me,

Say you love me please, I’m praying

[CHORUS]

Supertramp Help Me Down That Road

I feel so close to you

‘Cos you know you always do

Help me down that road

I go to slepp at night

Feeling that it’s alright

‘Cos you help me down that road

When I feel I’ve been beat

You get me on my feet

You help me spread that heavy load

Now that I realize

Just where our friendship lies

It will help me down that road

You think you’ve seen my best

But you ain’t seen nothin’ yet

Since you, help me down that road

When life is a bitter sweet

You mix it up a treat

Yeah, you’re the best pick up I know

If you don’t satisfy

Don’t give me the evil eye

It won’t help me down that road

When I ain’t doin’ so well

You never kiss and tell

You just help me down that road

Just when I’m feelin’ sick

You give my heart a kick

Then I don’t feel so all alone

When I can’t get it right

Just when the end’s in sight

Yes you help me down that road

I know you’ll be callin’ me

To see you that I’m OK

I know that you will always be

With me night and day

I could live in poverty, I could be in pain

I know that you’d be there with me

To you it’s all the same

Supertramp Where There’s A Will

Where there’s a will, there’s a way

Or so they say

A friend in need is a friend indeed

He’ll be there every day

And if it’s trouble that’s in store

You know they’ll tell you even more

Where there’s a will, there’s a way

That’s what they’ll say

When the writing is on the wall

And if you could fall

When your best ain’t good enough

And life’s tough

When the lad of hope and dreams

Isn’t always what it seems

Where there’s a will, there’s a way

They always say

You may be sorry, you may be sad, you may be blue

You think you’ll never see the sun come breaking thru

You struggle morning noon and night

And you still I can’t get it right

But where there’s a will, there’s a way

Just say it every day

Well so much for trouble, so much for heartache

so much for pain

You just gotta get up, you just gotta reach out

You gotta try and try again

You think you’ll never see it thru

But what the hell you gonna do

Where there’s a will, there’s a way

You’ve heard’em say

Well I don’t no nothing ’bout this world

and all it’s wrong

I can tell you now,

why we all can’t get along

But after all is said and done

We gotta keep on, keepin’ on

‘Cos where there’s a will, there’s a way

I don’t know what to say

Thru all your sorrows

all your dreams, and all your joys

In times of sadness,

in time of grief

and even times that you enjoy

As your life you live it through

You know it all depends on you

And if where there’s a will, there’s a way

You better get down and pray

From the cradle to the grave

You better say it every day

When the crime’s above the law

When the plane’s about to fall

When the mighty oceans roar

When tomorrow’s at your door

Where there’s a will, there’s a way

That’s what they’ll say

Supertramp Bee In Your Bonnet

I keep on churning away, but pay no mind

You don’t know nothing ’bout me but that’s alright

I tell you true that I’ll be there and that’s for sure

You got to let me go everywhere, let me through that door

Let me through that door

You say you got a bee in your bonnet

You know for every sting there’s a cure

But don’t you put your finger right on it

You’ll only make it hurt all the more

I doubt if you’ll be liable to read it in the bible

But I ain’t going to say any more

You can’t build enough in a row but don’t kid yourself

You gotta know they’re all insane

They goin’ ridin’ on the range

Don’t need no hi-fly strutter

Go babe, you’re driving me crazy

You got a new shining beau

It don’t pay to love

It don’t pay to love

You say you got a bee in your bonnet

You know for every sting there’s a cure

But don’t you put your finger right on it

You’ll only make it hurt all the more

I doubt if you be liable

To read it in the bible

I ain’t going to say any more

Well there you go blaming yourself

There you go hiding so deep in your shell

You better not cry when your baby comes home

Yeah you know she’s going to find out somehow

You’re having a breakdown right here and now

I guess you don’t know where you’re headed for now

It’s OK….. you’re going to live to see another day

Lie, cheat, and beg, borrow, steal

Gotta find a way to be real

Show me something I ain’t seen before

We’re gonna make it through that door

You may be in love and love it’s true

But it’s a romance that you can’t use

Give me something and take it away

Gonna get it right some day

You gonna get it right some day

You say you got a bee in your bonnet

You know for every sting there’s a cure

But don’t you put your finger right on it

You’ll only make it hurt all the more

I doubt if you be liable

To read it in the bible

I ain’t going to say any more

But there you go blaming yourself

And there you go hiding

So deep in your shell

You better not cry when your baby comes home

And you know she’s going to find out somehow

You’re having a breakdown right here and now

I guess you don’t know where you’re heading for now

It’s OK….. you’re going to live to see another day

Well there you go blaming yourself

There you go hiding so deep in your shell

You better not cry when your baby comes home

Yeah you know she’s going to find out somehow

You’re having a breakdown right here and now

I guess you don’t know where you’re headed for now

It’s OK….. you’re going to live to see another day

Supertramp Shadow Song

Did your shadow ever speak to you?

And did he say that something’s wrong?

Huddle figure on a lamp-let wall

Never realized he cared at all

Did he stop you going on?

Guess my shadow spoke to me to night

And made me throw my dreams away

Told a story of a twisted man

Who is playing with some foolish plan

‘Bout a girl who haft away

Sometimes shadows are near

I see things very clear

My life unwires

Somewhere I make my stay

Blue ?ground and? yesterday

And change my mind

Now your shadow isn’t always there

In the light of cloudy day

Or in circles where you had ?from view?

All the doubts that ever bothered you

And where people loose your name

Supertramp Just A Normal Day

RD- Woke up cryin’ with the break of dawn, and,

I looked up and the sky,

The air was still, yet all the leaves were falling,

Can you tell me why?

RH- Well, I just don’t know the reason,

I don’t know what to say,

it just seems a normal day,

and, I’ve got to live my own life,

I just can’t spare the time,

But, you’ve got strange things on your mind

RD- Well, I just feel ,that every minute’s wasted,

My life is unreal,

And anyway, I guess, I’m just not rated,

At least twice, that’s how I feel

RH- Well, I just don’t know the reason,

I don’t know what to say;

It just seems a normal day

And, I’ve got to live my own life,

I just can’t spare the time;

But, you’ve got strange things on your mind.

RD- Eat a lot, sleep a lot,

Passing the time away,

Maybe I’ll find my way,

Who am I kidding?

Yes, it’s just myself.

Supertramp Some Things Never Change

I went back my home town

To the school and walked around

And the way it felt

It seemed just like yesterday

From the cradle to the grave

Some say we never change

No matter how we try

We try to rearrange

Life father so like son

It’s as if wife we’re both as one

Just as if our fate was pre-ordained

In some countries far from here

You know the one s we used to fear

Are they waiting to return to

Those old evil ways

You can take a correspondance course

Be single married or divorced

You can psychoanlyze your brain

But you know some things will never change

And what will those people do

When Russia starts anew

They’ll just stand in line

All under a different name

You can listen to those brainwash tapes

Take a Jewish, Catholic, Buddhist faith

But I’m sure it’s gonna be in vain

‘Cos you know some things will never change

If their theories all come true

Then there’s nothin’ we can do

Where the future lies

Well it’s not to hard to tell

But after all is said and done

And if the world it lives as one

You can bid those old taboo’s

A fond fare well

Yes a fond fare well

A very long fare well

Supertramp Still In Love

You’ve been lyin’

I’ve been cryin’

You’ve been messin’

I’ve been guessin’ ’bout you

You’ve been cheatin’

I’ve been creepin’ around

You’ve been leavin’

I’ll be grievin’, I’m grievin’

But I’m still in love with you

And no matter what you do

Cause you know that in the end

I’ll come runnin’ back again

I’ve been drinkin’

Got me thinkin’

You’ve been tellin’

I’ve been yellin’ at you

You’ve been stretchin’

I’ve been fetchin’ you back

You’ve been tastin’

But I’m still in love…

You’ve been sighin’

And goodbyin’

Never knowin’

Where you’re been choosin’

I’ve been losin’ you

You’re my lover

But I discovered the truth

But I’m still in love…

Got me dancin’ on a string

Like I just don’t mean a thing

Cause you know that in the end

I’ll come runnin’ back again

Supertramp Logical Song

When I was young,

It seemed that life was so wonderful,

A miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical.

And all the birds in the trees,

Well they’d be singing so happily,

Oh joyfully, oh playfully watching me.

But then they sent me away

To teach me how to be sensible,

Logical, oh responsible, practical.

And then they showed me a world

Where I could be so dependable,

Oh clinical, oh intellectual, cynical.

There are times

When all the world’s asleep,

The questions run too deep

For such a simple man.

Won’t you please,

Please tell me what we’ve learned

I know it sounds absurd

Please tell me who I am.

I said now what would you say

Now we’re calling you a radical,

A liberal, oh fanatical, criminal.

Oh won’t you sign up your name,

We’d like to feel you’re acceptable,

Respectable, oh presentable, a vegetable!

Take, take, take it

But at night, when all the world’s asleep,

The questions run so deep

For such a simple man.

Won’t you please,

Won’t you tell me

Please tell me what we’ve learned

Can you hear me

I know it sounds absurd

Why won’t you help me

But please tell me who I am.

Who I am, who I am, who I am,

‘Cause I was feeling so logical

Digital

One two three four

Liberal

Supertramp Ever Open Door

Sharing’s good, sharing’s fine

But no one wants to share this world of mine

Is dull, dark and grey

And no one wants to find the way

To my front door is always open to you

Hey now life, give me a break

For much more of this I cannot

Take me to a far off place

Where there’s no rich or poor

And every house has got an ever open door

I want to find my direction

I want my love and affection

Yes I’m needing it more and more

I want to find my own answers

it’s time I knew what my plans were

I’m going to find out what I’m looking for

I’m gonna take all my chances

Gonna make my advances

Gonna see what my life has in store

I’ve got a feeling inside me

I’ll put the past way behind me

Pick myself up from the floor

I want my sun in the morning

Want my friends to come calling

I’ll keep a welcome outside my door
