PIMP MY JAZZ 1-14

Track 1: Take the Moon and the Stars

 

(Swing)

by GK Sparks & Kay Shelley (Copyright 2010) 

 

VERSE 1

Take the Moon and the Stars,

They’re put there by love.

They’re for you and me,

For all the world to see.

 

VERSE 2

Take the Sun

And the warmth of the smile of someone you love,

They’re just put there

By those who love the world.

 

BRIDGE

At times it seems that we don’t get along,

And everything is not what it should be,

But two people holding hands can make the world seem right,

Through each other’s eyes, that’s how we really see.

 

VERSE 3

Take the Sea and the Sky,

Created by love.

They’re a gift, you see,

That was meant to be.

 

INSTRUMENTAL

 

REPEAT BRIDGE

REPEAT VERSE 3

 

VERSE 4

Take the Moon and the Stars,

They’re put there by love.

They’re just put there,

They’re just put there,

By those who love the world,

Those who love the world,

Those who love the world…..

…The world.

Track 2: Loving Love

 

(Ballad)

by GK Sparks & Kay Shelley (Copyright 2010)

 

VERSE 1

Here in my lonely room

Shadows drift across the moon.

Emptiness my only friend,

Is this where the story ends?

Darkness holds me close as night,

Love’s a shooting star in flight.

I didn’t realise,

I didn’t understand ….

I was loving love …..

I was loving love …..

 

VERSE 2

Here in my troubled mind,

I’ve searched so hard to find

Answers to my lonely plight,

Secrets lost in dead of night.

We used to be such friends,

Now we’re at journey’s end,

I didn’t realise, etc etc.

 

BRIDGE

In my dreams you’re with me, with your touch so real.

Is this what I long for, what I feel?

Now the dawn is breaking, the new day begins,

Now the future’s waiting in the wings.

 

VERSE 3

Here in this heart of mine,

Your image locked in time,

Your warmth will linger on -

Memories to keep me strong.

I must forgive again,

Learn how to live again.

I didn’t realise, etc etc.

           

I was loving love x 5

 

END

 

Track 3: Luck Walked Out

 

(Swing Buble-style)

by GK Sparks & Kay Shelley (Copyright 2010)

 

INTRO

My day didn’t start with any fun at all.

I felt that life had said, this time you’ll take the fall.

I’ve never let love sweet love get in my way,

Until you came along and now it’s here to stay.

 

VERSE 1

Luck walked out, then you walked in.

And I said to myself, this time I win

All those things I’ve promised myself,

All those words left on the shelf.

Cos when luck walked out, you walked in.

 

VERSE 2

You walked in as luck walked out.

You’re what dreams of love are all about.

I felt I was caught in a spin,

But don’t you know that’s how it begins.

Cos you walked in as luck walked out.

 

BRIDGE

Yes, I know you’ll say you’ve heard it all before,

But this is the real thing - you can’t ask for any more.

I can hear you say, where does it end or begin?

Only we know the truth, and the truth is deep within.

 

VERSE 3

Now happy days are here at last.

That lonely loser is in the past.

They said it could never be,

But you see the difference in me,

Cos luck walked out but you walked in.

 

INSTRUMENTAL

 

REPEAT BRIDGE

REPEAT VERSE 3

 

FINISH

Yes, luck walked out, you walked in.

Luck walked out, you walked in.

Luck walked out, you walked in.

 

END

 

Track 4: I Never Learned My Lesson

 

(Ballad)

by GK Sparks & Kay Shelley (Copyright 2010)

 

VERSE 1

I need to analyse

What’s real and what is lies,

All the give-and-takes,

All the lows and highs,

Cos it seems, you see….. I never learned my lesson with you.

 

VERSE 2

Chasing down the sun,

My heart’s on the run.

Like a bride waiting at the church,

I’m left in the lurch.

It’s a sad affair….I never learned my lesson, it’s true.

 

BRIDGE

We were lovers way back once upon a time,

You seemed to cast a spell so rare.

Starting anew made life more than sublime,

But now you often leave me in despair.

 

VERSE 3

I never thought

It could end this way.

I’m always building bridges,

But you push them away.

It’s a crying shame ….I never learned my lesson with you.

 

INSTRUMENTAL

 

REPEAT VERSE 3

 

FINALE

No, I never learned my lesson ….. in love,

No, I never learned my lesson ….. in love,

No, I never learned my lesson ….. in loving you.

Track 5: Dance It Out

 

(Salsa)

by GK Sparks & Kay Shelley (Copyright 2010)

 

CHORUS 1

Dance it out.

Sing and shout.

When there’s doubt,

Shake it out.

 

VERSE 1

Life is full of battles, it will wear you to the bone.

Slings and arrows knock you to the ground.

Love will fly away before it’s even found a home,

But your dreams will never let you down.

 

VERSE 2

Jumping high and swinging low, you shake the pain about.

Gotta whip these blues and make them pay.

You can find a sanctuary, and let it all hang out,

Let your weary body drift away.  

 

INSTRUMENTAL

REPEAT VERSE 2

 

CHORUS 2

Dance it out, feel the rhythm beneath your feet.

Shake it out, take a chance and feel the heat.

Sing and shout, let the sun come shining through,

Take a bow, let the music be part of you.

 

INSTRUMENTAL

 

FINALE

Go ahead,

You can dance it out.

Only thing to do is

Dance it out.

 

END

 

Track 6: From Nowhere

 

(Slow bossa nova)

by GK Sparks and Kay Shelley (Copyright 2010)

  

VERSE 1

She comes from nowhere,

But she’s going somewhere,

Even if it takes her breath away.

Don’t wanna be a nobody,

Wants to be a somebody,

A someone, a somebody, someday.

 

VERSE 2

Don’t wanna be like you and me,

Working all our lives.

She wants to travel the world in luxury.

She wants to be a somebody, yeah.

No, not a nobody,

A someone, a somebody, one day.

 

BRIDGE  

And when you feel what she’s gotta give, you know

It’s right, so right, from the start.

A feeling that comes down between you and her, oh yeah,

Just to cover the dust she creates.

 

VERSE 3

She’s a nobody, but she’s going to be a somebody. 

Watch this space, weep and learn. 

Until  her  ship  comes  in, she’ll  just sit  and  smile  at  you.

Whisper  words  in  your  ear….  and  take  your  breath  away.

Whisper  words  in  your  ear….  and  take  your  breath  away.

 

END

 

Track 7:  Trick Called Love

 

(Swing)

by GK Sparks and Kay Shelley (Copyright 2010)

 

VERSE 1

I have always been the girl

Never could win any hearts.

I have always been the one

Never really got…. started.

 

BRIDGE 1

I just threw it all away,

Believing I’d win another day,

What was I really thinking of?

 

CHORUS

What is this trick called love?

Why do so many believe in it?

What is this dream we dream?

What do we hope to achieve by it?

 

VERSE 2

Loving never came my way.

Games I played went down the line.

Maybe I’ll get there someday.

It’s just a matter of timing.

 

BRIDGE 2

I know what I’m gonna do,

I’m gonna leave it all up to you,

So lady luck, turn on your magic for me.

 

REPEAT CHORUS     

 

VERSE 3
If I coloured the world with love,

I would paint it blue and gold.

Hand it out to everyone,

Whether they were young or old.

 

REPEAT BRIDGE 2

REPEAT CHORUS x 2

 

FINALE:

Trick called love…....

 

END

Track 8: Give Me a Song

(Swing Sinatra-style)
by GK Sparks & Kay Shelley (Copyright 2010)

VERSE 1
Give me a song that really swings,
Give me a lyric that really sings.
Take me all the way, don’t let me go,
Give me a melody that’s fast and slow.

VERSE 2
Fix me a feeling right out of the blue.
Make me touch the sky, make me feel brand new.
Play me a crazy tune that gives me wings,
Spark me that lightning inspiration brings.

BRIDGE
I wanna be there, I wanna feel it,
A beat that really kicks along.
I wanna know it, I wanna show it,
That champagne chill that thrills my tongue.

VERSE 3
Gleam me more glitter than diamond rings,
Reel me more romance than brass and strings.
Serve me a fabled feast fit for queens and their kings,
Chime me a church bell that ring a-ding dings.

INSTRUMENTAL

REPEAT BRIDGE

VERSE 4
Give me a time that I can make today.
Give me a sentimental mood that’s here to stay.
I wanna smile at all my favourite things.
So please… just give me a song that swings.

END

Track 9: Days Gone By (Les Jours Passes)

 

(French-style waltz)

by GK Sparks & Kay Shelley (Copyright 2010)

 

VERSE 1

When the song begins again, love,

When the song begins again, love,

It takes me back to the days that are gone,

Those days of love,

So full of life,

Those days gone by.

 

VERSE 2

When I hear them call your name, love,

When I hear them call your name, love,

I can remember the innocent days,

When I was young,

When you were strong,

When we were one.

 

BRIDGE

Something so perfect,

How did it fade,

Why did you drift far away from me?

Still the sun shines but

Nothing’s the same,

Are we both prisoners or free?

 

VERSE 1 (in French):

Quand la chanson recommence,

Quand la chanson recommence,

Il m’emporte aux journees bien disparues,

Les jours d’amour,

Si pleins de vie,

Les jours passes.

 

VERSE 2 (in French):

Quand j’entend ce qu’on t’appelle,

Quand j’entend ce qu’on t’appelle,

Je me souviens des journees innocentes,

Quand j’etais jeune,

Tu etais fort,

Les deux unis.

 

BRIDGE (in French):

Comment s’evanouir,

Chose si parfaite,

Pourquoi derive loin de moi?

Encore le soleil

Brille - mais pour rien,

Enfin a chacun son choix.

 

REPEAT VERSE 1 (in English)

 

When the song begins again, love….

 

END

 

Track 10: Please Come Back

 

(Swing)

by GK Sparks & Kay Shelley (Copyright 2010)

 

VERSE 1

Now my honey is gone from me,

I’d be happy if I could be

Holding him close like I used to do,

Two hearts together, we were true.

And if I see him in the crowd,

All my feelings speak out loud.

Honey, won’t you please come back to me, oh yes.

Honey, won’t you please come back to me?

 

VERSE 2

Every night when I climb the stairs,

I know you’ll soon be in my prayers.

I go to sleep and you’re in my dreams,

Think I’m falling apart at the seams.

Close your eyes and remember how

You and I once made a vow.

Honey, won’t you make that vow again, I beg you.

Honey, won’t you make that vow again?

 

BRIDGE (male vocal)

Can that be the girl that I see,

Walking away afar?

Could it be her walk, her smile,

Her face aglow like a star?

 

REPEAT VERSE 2

 

INSTRUMENTAL

 

REPEAT VERSE 1, ending with:

Honey, won’t you please come back to me?

Honey, won’t you please come back to me, one more time?

Honey, won’t you please come back to me?

That you left me,

Things were always  

Going wrong.

We could never

Get along.

Track 12: Back to Ipanema

 

(Bossa nova)

by GK Sparks & Kay Shelley (Copyright 2010)

 

VERSE 1

Here we are

Lying on the beach,

Where the sky’s a jewel,

The sea’s a peach,

And the sun is burning,

Thoughts are turning

To love.

 

VERSE 2

All our cares

Drifting out of sight,

While around us sparkle

The beams of light

That this supernova

Sends all over

The world.

 

BRIDGE

We might catch a glimpse

Of the boy,

We might cross the path

Of the girl,

We might reach up to the stars

As the day rolls into the night.

 

VERSE 3

Here we stand

At the doors of time,

And our life is music,

Our speech is rhyme,

And who knows whether

We’ll meet again,

Who knows?

 

REPEAT VERSE 1

To love,

To love,

To love.

 

END

 

Track 13: Shaken and Stirred

 

(Swing)

by GK Sparks and Kay Shelley (Copyright 2010)

 

VERSE 1

If you could feel what’s going on in my head,

Baby, you’d know it’s true.

Don’t know just what each new day will bring,

Only know how I need you.

I’m shaken and stirred by you.

 

VERSE 2

Sometimes we seem to go our own ways,

Don’t really know what to do.

If only I could push my memories away,

But they stick to me like glue.

I’m shaken and stirred by you.

 

BRIDGE

You, babe, and I were a cocktail of dreams,

Blending the sun with the rain,

But dreams fade and I’m hurting inside,

Deep down you can’t see my pain.

 

REPEAT VERSE 1

 

Seriously shaken,

Seriously stirred,

I’m shaken and stirred by you.
