1) Critic's Choice -Robert Lamm-

What do you want

What do you want

I'm givin everything I have

I'm even trying to see if there's more

Locked deep inside

I'll try

I'll try

Can't you see, this is me

What do you need

What do you need

Is someone just to hurt

So that you can appear to be smart

And use a steady job

Play God

Play God

What to you really know

You parasite

You're dynamite

An oversight

Misunderstanding what you hear

You're quick to cheer

And volunteer

Obsurdities, musicals, blasphemies

Oh Lord

Save us all

What do you want

What do you want

I'm givin every thing I have

I'm even trying to see if there's more

Locked deep inside

I'll try

I'll try

Can't you see, this is me


2) Just You 'N' Me -James Pankow-

You are my love in my life

And you are my inspiration

Just you 'n me

Simple and free

Baby you're everything I've ever dreamed of

Yeah, yeah

Give me your own special smile

Promise you'll never leave me

Just you 'n me

Simple and free

Life is so easy

When you're beside me

Oh girl

Come hold me close

Never release me

Oh baby don't release me

Open your arms, let my love in

Let me in, let me in, let me in

Love me tonight, love me forever

And ever

You know I can't forget you

Just you 'n me to carry on

Simple and free my lovely

To flow as one as love's reward

Lovin' you girl is so damn easy

Yeah, yeah

You are my love in my life

You are my inspiration

Just you 'n me

Simple and free

Baby you're everything I've ever dreamed of


3) Darlin' Dear -Robert Lamm-

Since the time

Half the night

Feelin' good

Feelin' right

Words were spoke

Brought us close

When we touched it was overdose

On the road

You're back there

You're my friend Darlin' Dear

Open up

Let me in

I'm your pal again

When your smile

Shines on me

I am the sea to sea

We will fly everywhere

You're my friend Darlin' Dear

Caught a glance

Picked up the phone

Did you read Rolling Stone

Knowing you'll knock me out

I am your roustabout

Pretty good atmosphere

You're my friend Darlin' Dear

Oh baby

Oh baby


4) Jenny -Terry Kath-

Jenny

Jenny

You know I'm goin' away

And you know my woman's here

Please don't you stray

Watch over her

You can run amok and play

Your whole life through

And you can chase the cats around

'Cause she loves that too

Then if someone comes to cause her harm

You will protect her true

Oh Jenny

Jenny

Jenny

You got her while I'm gone

Time moves so slow

For someone who's alone

So comfort her

If she's feelin' low

You gotta be a card

And If she's fast asleep

Don't you sleep too hard

If someone comes to cause her harm

You gotta gun 'em down

Oh Jenny

Now maybe

It's gonna be alright

Won't have to fight

Won't have to fight

But then again

So sad but true

There's always someone waiting

Just to shit on you

And if she's feeling low

You gotta be a card

If she's fast asleep

Don't you sleep too hard

'Cause if someone comes to cause her harm

You gotta gun 'em down

Oh Jenny

Now maybe

It's gonna be alright

You won't have to fight

Never have to fight

But then again

You know it's sad but true

There's always someone waiting

Just to shit on you


5) What's This World Comin' To -James Pankow-

Why can't folks get along with one another

'Cause Jesus said you got to love your brother

Lord I seem to notice all the evil in the air

No one seems to really give a damn if it is there

Oh, what's this world comin' to

Hope for love, come on through, come on through

People finally get them together

Makin' life - Ooh - a whole lot better

Yeah, yeah

Some folks got a lot, and some are hungry

Well I said some folks have to live from day to day

Rich folks spendin' time just countin' money

Poor folks really ain't got much to say

What's this world comin' to

Hope for love, come on through, come on through

I said now people finally get them together

Makin' life - Ooh - a whole lot better

Yeah, yeah

What's this world

Comin' to

What's this world

Comin' to

What's this world

Comin' to

What's this world

Comin' to

What's this world

Comin' to

What's this world

Comin' to

Oh people got to get their thing together

Be no time to lose just time to die

All of us can make this world a better place to be

All of us can see how good it feels to be free

Woah, what's this world comin' to

Hope for love, come on through, me and you

People got to get it together

Makin life - Ooh - A whole lot better


6) Something In This City Changes People -Robert Lamm-

Maitre D's will seat me

Knowing what I spend

They are friend

So sad so sad

Smiling face greet me

Everyone's my friend

They Pretend

So sad so sad

They see I am happy

With my lady

They're not satisfied

All their feelings died

Something in this city

Changes people

Makes them devil-eyed

My love she waits for me

When I'm far away

Counting days

So sad so sad

They all know our story

Still they try to play

Anyway

So sad so sad

Flashing cars and morning

Funny faces

Egos magnified

Quite Unjustified

Something in this City

Changes People

Makes them devil-eyed


7) Hollywood -Robert Lamm-

People running everywhere

Not one place to go

Got no time to look around to find out where they are

Where they are

Where they are

People having such a race

Don't know where it ends

Got beat the other man at getting anywhere

Anywhere

Anywhere

Hollywood

Crazy neighborhood

Never understood why I stay

Hollywood

Lovely lady who'd

Make you feel good

Every day

Feeling the night's past fire

Under the glowing eyes

Of the sweet butterflies

Watch

What you say

When you say it

Someone you know

Will betray it

Will betray it

Hollywood

Oh, crazy neighborhood

Never understood why I stay

Heard it through the grapevine

Heard it through the grapevine

Heard it through the grapevine

Hollywood, Hollywood

Things are weak, things are weak

Heard it through the grapevine

Heard it through the grapevine

Heard it through the grapevine

Heard it through the grapevine

Heard it through the grapevine

Heard it through the grapevine

Heard it through the grapevine

Heard it through the grapevine

Heard it through the grapevine


8) In Terms Of Two -Peter Cetera-

You played the part of this hard to get

And somehow you knew that I couldn't forget

And though I don't think in terms of two

I got it bad for you

And when you passed me along the way

I couldn't speak, so you didn't stay

And though I don't think in terms of two

You're breaking my heart

Shaking me up the part

Breaking my heart

Shaking me up the part again

When it appeared to me I was found

And nothing I did could bring me around

And though I don't think in terms of two

I saw it there in you

So now if you'd only understand

That without you here

I'd be half of a man

And though I don't think in terms of two

You're breaking my heart

Shakin me off the part

Breaking my heart

Shakin me off the part again

Because of you

Because of me

The times are right

I disagree

Before you leave

I want you to see

Woah, what you've done to me


9) Rediscovery -Robert Lamm-

Oh what a beautiful night

The stars are shining bright

I've not been feeling right

Not been feeling right

I've not been feeling right

Soon it's gonna change

Time to rearrange

Stop this acting strange

Found us a beautiful place

Perfect and tiny space

And now we can retrace

Now we can retrace

Now we can retrace

All we have begun

New oblivion

Havin' lots of fun

Guitar

Got to get back inside

Dreams and thoughts collide

Say you found this crazy

Say you found this crazy

Say you found this crazy

Life

Please be good to me

Last chance to be free

This mountain majesty is rediscovery


10) Feelin' Stronger Every Day -Peter Cetera/James Pankow-

I do believe in you

And I know you believe in me

Oh yeah

Oh yeah

And now we realize

Love's not all that it's supposed to be

Oh yeah

Oh yeah

And knowing that you would have wanted it this way

I do believe I'm feelin' stronger every day

I know we really tried

Together we had love inside

Oh yeah

Oh yeah

So now the time has come

For both of us to live on the run

Oh yeah

Oh yeah

And knowing that you would have wanted it this way

I do believe I'm feelin' stronger every day

Yeah, yeah, yeah

After what you've meant to me

Ooh baby now

I can make it easily

Yeah, yeah, yeah

I know that we both agree

Best thing to happen to you

The best thing that happened to me

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Feelin' stronger every day

Feelin' stronger every day

Feelin' stronger every day

(You know I'm alright now)

Feelin' stronger every day

(You know I'm alright now)

Feelin' stronger every day

(You know I'm alright now)

Feelin' stronger every day

(You know I'm alright now)

Feelin stronger every day

(You know I'm alright now)

Feelin stronger every day

(You know I'm alright now)

Feelin' stronger every day

(You know I'm alright now)

Feelin stronger every day

(You know I'm alright now)

Feeling stronger every day
