The Bear Necessities

(Slow)

Look for the bare necessities,

The simple bare necessities

Forget about your worries and your strife!

I mean the bare necessities,

Old Mother Nature’s recipes

That bring the bare necessities of life.

(Lively)

Look for the bare necessities,

The simple bare necessities

Forget about your worries and your strife!

I mean the bare necessities,

Old Mother Nature’s recipes

That bring the bare necessities of life.

 

Wherever I wander

Wherever I roam

I couldn’t be fonder

Of my big home

The bees are buzzing in the tree

To make some honey just for me

The bare necessities of life will come to you.

 

I Won’t Give Up

When I look into your eyes

It’s like watching the night sky

Or a beautiful sunrise

Well, there’s so much they hold

And just like them old stars

I see that you’ve come so far

To be right where you are

How old is your soul?

 

Well, I won’t give up on us

Even if the skies get rough

I’m giving you all my love

I’m still looking up

 

And when you’re needing your space

To do some navigating

I’ll be here patiently waiting

To see what you find

 

‘Cause even the stars they burn

Some even fall to the earth

We’ve got a lot to learn

God knows we’re worth it

No, I won’t give up

 

I don’t wanna be someone who walks away so easily I’m here to stay and make the difference that I can make

Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use the tools and gifts we got, we got a lot at stake

And in the end, you’re still my friend at least we did intend for us to work we didn’t break, we didn’t burn

We had to learn, how to bend without the world caving in

I had to learn what I’ve got, and what I’m not, and who I am

 

I won’t give up on us

Even if the skies get rough

I’m giving you all my love

I’m still looking up, still looking up.

 

Well, I won’t give up (no I’m not) on us (giving up)

God knows I’m tough (I am tough) enough (I am loved)

We’ve got a lot (We’re alive)to learn (We are loved and we’re worth it)

God knows we’re worth it

No, I won’t give up

I won’t give up!

 

Ain’t no Mountain High Enough

If you need me, call me,

No matter where you are,

No matter how far,

Don’t worry, brother.

Just call out my name,

I’ll be there in a hurry,

You don’t have to worry,

’Cos baby there

 

Ain’t no mountain high enough,

Ain’t no valley low enough,

Ain’t no river wide enough

To keep me from getting to you, babe.

 

Remember the day,

You set me free,

I told you you could Always count on me.

From that day on,

I made a vow,

I’ll be there when you want me,

Somewhere, somehow.

’Cos baby there

 

Ain’t no mountain high enough,

Ain’t no valley low enough,

Ain’t no river wide enough

To keep me from getting to you, babe,

‘Cos baby there

Ain’t no mountain high enough,

Ain’t no valley low enough,

Ain’t no river wide enough

To keep me from getting to you, babe,

To keep me

From getting to you!

 

Sweet Child of Mine

She’s got a smile it seems to me

Reminds me of childhood memories

Where everything

Was as fresh as the bright blue sky

Now and then when I see her face

She takes me away to that special place

And if I’d stare too long

I’d probably break down and cry

 

Oh, oh, oh Sweet child of mine

Oh, oh, oh, oh Sweet love of mine

 

She’s got eyes of the bluest skies

As if they thought of rain

I hate to look into those eyes

And see an ounce of pain

Her hair reminds me of a warm safe place

Where as a child I’d hide

And pray for the thunder

And the rain to quietly pass me by

 

Oh, oh, oh Sweet child of mine

Oh, oh, oh, oh Sweet love of mine

 

Don’t Stop Believing

Dah dah dah dah

Just a small town girl

Living in a lonely world

She took a midnight train going anywhere

Just a city boy

Born and raised in south Detroit

He took the midnight train going anywhere

 

Dah dah dah dah

Dah dah dah dah

Dah dah dah dah

Dah dah dah dah

Dah dah dah dah

Dah dah dah dah

Dah dah dah dah

Dah dah dah Jah-dah

 

A singer in a smoky room

The smell of wine and cheap perfume

For a smile they can share the night

It goes on and on and on and on

 

Strangers waiting

Up and down the boulevard

Their shadows searching in their night

Street light people

Living just to find emotion

Hiding somewhere in the night

 

Dah dah dah dah

Dah dah dah dah

Dah dah dah dah

Dah dah dah dah

 

Working hard to get my fill

Everybody wants a thrill

Paying anything to roll the dice

Just one more time

Some will win, some will lose

Some were born to sing the blues

And oh the movie never ends

It goes on and on and on and on

 

Strangers waiting

Up and down the boulevard

Their shadows searching in their night

Street light people

Living just to find emotion

Hiding somewhere in the night

 

Dah dah dah dah

Dah dah dah dah

Dah dah dah dah

Dah dah dah dah

Dah dah dah dah

Dah dah dah dah

Dah dah dah dah

Dah dah dah dah

 

Don’t stop believing

Hold on to the feeling

Street light people

Don’t stop believing

Hold on to the feeling

Street light people

Don’t stop!
