ONCE OR TWICE

Words and music by Terry Kath / Lead vocal by Terry Kath

Oh girl

I looked you over once or twice

I think that you are very nice

And you're just meant for me

Oh girl

I think you got a messed up mind

But if you will take the time

Baby i can set you free

Well i'm not trying to be

What i am not

But i think what you need

Is what i got

Girl i'm no philosopher

But i can offer you that cure

To mend your broken heart

I konw that you are not blind

I know you see my messed up mind

Yes, you see my broken heart too

So won't you

Bring your heart and

Your mind that's out

On the run

Fuse them with my broken

Heart, in my mind

We'll be one.

Girl i looked you over once or twice

I think that you are very nice

And you're just meant for me

Girl i think you got a messed up mind

Now that you know yours is

Just like mine

Baby, won't you set me free


YOU ARE ON MY MIND

Words and music by James Pankow / Lead vocal by James Pankow

You are on my mind

The echo of your laughter flowing through me

Sitting by a mountain fire

And wishing you were in my arms

And loving me completely

Rocky mountain highs are very nice

But you are gone and nothing's quite the same

L.A. is so far away and I can't

Stand another day

Without you by my side

Though I've tried, tried, tried

You are on my mind

You are everything a woman could be

Consequently i believe taht no one

Else could tak eyour place if you

Should ever leave me

I'll be coming home again to you

And look upon the woman that I love

There is nothing i can say that celebrates

The special way you keep me satisfied

Pretty girl

(break)

Feeling just a little lonely

Wishing you were in my arms

Yeah.....

You are on my mind

The echo of your laughter flowing through me

Sitting by a mountain fire

And wishing you were in my arms

And loving me completely

Rocky mountain highs are very nice

But you are gone and nothing's quite the same

L.A. is so far away and i can't

Stand another day

Without you by my side

Though i've tried, tried, tried.


SKIN TIGHT

Words and music by James Pankow

Lead vocal by Peter Cetera

Skin tight

Fits me like a glove

Your love is

Skin tight

Yes indeed it is

Your love is

Alright

Anytime of day or night

Is alright

Skin tight

Skin tight

Fits me like a glove

Your love is skin tight

Only you can keep me going

All night

Love me till the cows come home

It's alright

Skin tight

Skin tight

Fits me like a glove

Your love is

Skin tight

Yes indeed it is

Your love is

Alright

Any time of day or night

Is alright

Skin tight


IF YOU LEAVE ME NOW

Words and music by Peter Cetera / Lead vocal by Peter Cetera

If you leave me now, you'll take away the biggest part of me

No baby please don't go

If you leave me now, you'll take away the very heart of me

No baby please don't go

A love like ours is love that's hard to find

How could we let it slip away

We've come too far to leave it all behind

How could we end it all this way

When tomorrow comes we'll both regret

Things we said today

Cause i need you more than you'll ever know


TOGETHER AGAIN

Words and music by Lee Loughnane / Lead vocal by Lee Loughnane

The lonely days i spend away from you

Sometimes seem like they will never end

But then i picture the glow of your smiling face

And i can make it through the lonely days

And nights until i'm

Home

With you

Where we

Can see

And feel

Our love

Together again

My friend

The lonely nights i spend away from you

Are filled with memories of your dancing eyes

I feel i can make it through another day

Knowing that you'll be waiting to kiss me

Tenderly when i get home


ANOTHER RAINY DAY IN NEW YORK CITY

Words and music by Robert Lamm / Lead vocal by Peter Cetera

Another rainy day in New York City

Softly sweet, so silently it falls

As crosstown traffic crawls

Memories in my way in New York City

Tender, tough, too tragic to be true

And nothing i can do

City workers cheer

The taxis disappear

Another rainy day in New York City

Another spacey stay in New York city

High up in an overpriced hotel

The view is really swell

Windy, wet and gray in New york City

No one here i really want to see

Old friends and family

So suddenly serene

The air is fresh and clean

Another rainy day in New York City


MAMA MAMA

Words and music by Peter Cetera / Lead vocal by Peter Cetera

I can feel the magic

Suddenly it's all around

I can see it clearly

I can even hear the sound

It's all so new to me

I'm not the same

If this is love - it's words i feel

Then you're to blame - but can't explain

Mama mama when you look at me

I see love in your eyes

Mama mama softly sweet tender love in your eyes

You are all i live for

Maybe that's enough to say

And you're the one i wrote this song for

Everywhere & everyway


SCRAPBOOK

Words and music by Robert Lamm / Lead vocal by Robert Lamm

Six sets smoked on Saturdays

At Barnaby's on State

Countless California calls

We could not stand the wait

We played the pier on Venice beach

The crowd called out for more

Zappa and the Mothers next

We finished with a roar

Jimi was so kind to us

Had us on the tour

We got some education

Like we never got before

Around the world in twenty days

We played most every night

Jet-lag, girls, strange languages

Everyone began to fight

Lowdown at the Caribou

All rumours aside

Was we could never get together

Not unless we tried

Summer with the Beach Boys

We got sand all in our shoes

Made some special music

Everybody sang the blues


GENTLY I'LL WAKE YOU

Words and music by Robert Lamm / Lead vocal by Robert Lamm

Come to me, baby mine

And i'll make love to you

Just when the sun begins to shine

On the morning dew

I've been gone, far away

The days they seemed like years

Right by your side i'm gonna stay

Kiss away your tears

Gently i'll wake you

I won't hardly shake you

Gently i'll wake you

I won't hardly shake you

And i'll make sweet love to you

Hold me tight, don't let go

We'll dream the whole day through

I missed you more than you could know

I love only you

Come to me, baby imne

And i'll make love to you

Just when the sun begins to shine

On the morning dew

Gently i'll wake you

I won't hardly shake you

Gently i'll wake you

I won't hardly shake you

And i'll make sweet love to you


YOU GET IT UP

Words and music by Robert Lamm / Lead vocals by Chicago

You get it up

You get it up

You get me feeling so hot

Mama, i'm your buttercup

I'm blowing up

I'm blowing up

It's getting hotter and I

Don't know if i'll ever stop

Baby

Baby baby baby

You get it up

You get it up


HOPE FOR LOVE

Words and music by Terry Kath / Lead vocal by Terry Kath

Here i go again

Why does the ghost of love still haunt me

It's all been cried about before

It's all been cried about before

Yes, it's all been cried about before

Still it's everywhere

Is it crying to be heard

Don't think you've had your say

Don't think you've had your say

Yes, don't you think you've seen your day

I don't know

No i don't

Don't i know

I don't know

Don't i know

No i don't

I don't know

Not knowing if it's love

Is better than no thoughts of love at all

But it's been cried about before

I guess i'll cry for it some more

It's just the hope for love once more

It's just the hope for love once more
