If I Had The World To Give Lyrics
If I had the world to give, I'd give it to you
Long as you live, would you let it fall, or hold it all in your arms?
If I had a song to sing, I'd sing it to you
as long as you live, lullaby or maybe a plain serenade
wouldn't you laugh, dance, and cry or be afraid at the change you made
I may not have the world to give to you
But maybe I have a tune or two
Only if you let me be your world
Could I ever give this world to you
But I will give what love I have to give,
I will give what love I have to give,
I will give what love I have to give, long as I live.
If I had a star to give, I'd give it to you
long as you live, would you have the time
to watch it shine, watch it shine
or ask for the moon and heaven too? I'd give it to you.
Well maybe I've got no star to spare, or anything fine or even rare,
only if you let me be your world, could I ever give this world to you.
could I ever give this world to you.
I was born in the desert Raised in a lion's den I was born in the desert Raised in a lion's den Oh, my number one occupation is stealing women from their men Well, I'm a wanted man in Texas, busted jail and I'm gone for good. Said, I'm a wanted man in Texas, busted jail and I'm gone for good. Well, the sheriff couldn't catch me, But his little girl sure wish she could. Well now the doctor call me crazy, sometimes I am, sometimes I ain't, Said now the doctor call me crazy, sometimes I am, sometimes I ain't, Yes, and the preacher man call me...

Voices slide down off the mountain, sunlight turning red Falls on the earth and it spreads Even the families lower their heads as they ride Age old faces of the mountains looming naturally I wonder if they're looking at me, their monumental eyes I can feel In the glow of the twilight the thought of home Reminds me now I'm reaching out to you Anything I can do to be safe and warm in your arms All I have from the heart of you I'd meet you anywhere in the country or anywhere on the sea All over the world it could be I would follow you with the...read more
I need a woman 'bout twice my age A lady of nobility, gentility and rage Splendor in the dark, lightning on the draw We'll go right through the book and break each and every law. I got a feeling and it won't go away, oh no Just one thing then I'll be ok I need a miracle every day. I need a woman 'bout twice my height Statuesque, raven-dressed, a goddess of the night. Her secret incantations, a candle burning blue We'll consult the spirits maybe they'll know what to do. And it's real and it won't go away, oh no I can't get around and I can't...read more
You tell me this town ain't got no heart. Well, well, well, you can never tell. The sunny side of the street is dark. Well, well, well, you can never tell. Maybe that's cause it's midnight, in the dark of the moon besides. Maybe the dark is from your eyes, Maybe the dark is from your eyes, Maybe the dark is from your eyes, Maybe the dark is from your eyes, Maybe the dark is from your eyes, Maybe the dark is from your eyes, You know you got such dark eyes! Nothin' shakin' on Shakedown Street. Used to be the heart of town. Don't tell me this...read more
Way down in the south of France all the ladies love to dance kick their heels up in the air snap their fingers for romance While the gentlemen compare blonde or black or auburn hair check the motion and the style Oh, you know they take their while Hey, to make the motion more complete, yeah, to make it more a treat Club D'Jour is where to go come on down and see the show When the rhythm's really right you can burn it down tonight when the singing's really fine sweet as Spanish sherry wine When the club can't contain the beat it just rolls out...read more
Well, I was feelin' so bad, asked my family doctor 'bout what I had, I said, "Doctor, Doctor, Mister M.D., can you tell me, what's ailing me?"

Long distance runner, what you standin' there for? Get up, get out, get out of the door Your playin' cold music on the barroom floor Drowned in your laughter and dead to the core. There's a dragon with matches that's loose on the town Takes a whole pail of water just to cool him down. Fire! Fire on the mountain! Almost ablaze still you don't feel the heat It takes all you got just to stay on the beat. You say it's a livin', we all gotta eat But you're here alone, there's no one to compete. If Mercy's a bus'ness, I wish it for you More than...read more
