    song: Help! group: The Beatles Help, I need somebody, Help, not just anybody, Help, you know I need someone, help. When I was younger, so much younger than today, I never needed anybody's help in any way. But now these days are gone, I'm not so self-assured, Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors. Help me if you can, I'm feeling down And I do appreciate you being round. Help me, get my feet back on the ground, Won't you please, please help me? And now my life has changed in oh so many ways, My independence seems to vanish in the haze. But every now and then I feel so insecure, I know that I just need you like I've never done before. Help me if you can, I'm feeling down

    And I do appreciate you being round. Help me, get my feet back on the ground, Won't you please, please help me. When I was younger, so much younger than today, I never needed anybody's help in any way. But now these days are gone, I'm not so self-assured, Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors. Help me if you can, I'm feeling down And I do appreciate you being round. Help me, get my feet back on the ground, Won't you please, please help me, help me, help me, oh.

    song: Youve Got to Hide Your Love Away

    group: The Beatles

    Here I stand head in hand Turn my face to the wall If she's gone I can't go on Feelin' two-foot small. Everywhere people stare Each and every day I can see them laugh at me And I hear them say: Hey, you've got to hide your love away Hey, you've got to hide your love away How could I even try I can never win Hearing them, seeing them In the state I'm in How could she say to me Love will find a way Gather round all you clowns Let me hear you say: Hey, you've got to

    hide your love away Hey, you've got to hide your love away.

    song: Ticket to Ride group: The Beatles

    I think I'm gonna be sad, I think it's today, yeah. The girl that's driving me mad Is going away. She's got a ticket to ride, She's got a ticket to ride, She's got a ticket to ride, But she don't care. She said that living with me Is bringing her down yeah. For she would never be free When I was around. She's got a ticket to ride, She's got a ticket to ride, She's got a ticket to ride, But she don't care. I don't know why she's ridin' so high, She ought to think twice, She ought to do right by me. Before she gets to saying goodbye, She ought to think twice, She ought to do right by me. I think Im gonna be sad, I think it's today, yeah. The girl that's driving me mad Is going away, yeah.

    She's got a ticket to ride, She's got a ticket to ride, She's got a ticket to ride, But she don't care. I don't know why she's ridin' so high, She ought to think twice, She ought to do right by me. Before she gets to saying goodbye, She ought to think twice, She ought to do right by me. She said that living with me, Is bringing her down, yeah. For she would never be free When I was around. Ah, she's got a ticket to ride, She's got a ticket to ride, She's got a ticket to ride, But she don't care. My baby don't care, my baby don't care. My baby don't care, my baby don't care. My baby don't care, my baby don't care.

    song: Moonshadow singer: Cat Stevens Oh, Im bein followed by a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow Leapin and hoppin on a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow. And if I ever lose my hands, lose my plough, lose my land, Oh if I ever lose my hands, oh if.... I wont have to work no more. And if I ever lose my eyes, if my colors all run dry, Yes if I ever lose my eyes, oh if.... I wont have to cry no more. And if I ever lose my legs, I wont moan,

    and I wont beg, Yes if I ever lose my legs, oh if.... I wont have to walk no more. And if I ever lose my mouth, all my teeth, north and south, Yes if I ever lose my mouth, oh if.... I wont have to talk... Did it take long to find me? I asked the faithful light. Did it take long to find me? And are you gonna stay the night?

    song: Peace Train singer: Cat Stevens

    Now Ive been happy lately, thinking about the good things to come And I believe it could be, something good has begun. Oh Ive been smiling lately, dreaming about the world as one And I believe it could be, some day its going to come. Cause out on the edge of darkness, there rides a peace train Oh peace train take this country, come take me home again Now Ive been smiling lately, thinking about the good things to come And I believe it could be, something good has begun. Oh peace train sounding louder Glide on the peace train. Come on now peace train Yes, peace train holy roller, Everyone jump upon the peace train Come on now peace train

    Get your bags together, go bring your good friends too Cause its getting nearer, it soon will be with you. Now come and join the living, its not so far from you And its getting nearer, soon it will all be true. Now Ive been crying lately, thinking about the world as it is Why must we go on hating, why cant we live in bliss? Cause out on the edge of darkness, there rides a peace train Oh peace train take this country, come take me home again.

    song: Dont be Shy! singer: Cat Stevens

    Don't be shy just let your feelings roll on by. Don't wear fear or nobody will know you're there. Just lift your head, and let your feelings out instead. And don't be shy, just let your feeling roll on by, on by, on by You know love is better than a song. Love is where all of us belong. So don't be shy just let your feelings roll on by. Don't wear fear or nobody will know you're there, You're there

    Don't be shy just let your feelings roll on by. Don't wear fear or nobody will know you're there. Just lift your head, and let your feelings out instead. And don't be shy, just let your feelings roll on by, on by, on by, etc.

    song: Father and Son singer: Cat Stevens

    Father: Its not time to make a change, just relax, take it easy. Youre still young, Thats your fault, Theres so much you have to know. Find a girl, settle down, If you want you can marry. Look at me, I am old, but Im happy. I was once like you are now, and I know that its not easy, To be calm when youve found something going on. But take your time, think a lot, Why, think of everything youve got. For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not. Son: How can I try to explain, when I do he turns away again. Its always been the same, same old story. From the moment I could talk I was ordered to listen. Now theres a way and I know that I have to go away. I know I have to go.

    Father: Its not time to make a change, Just sit down, take it slowly. Youre still young, thats your fault, Theres so much you have to go through. Find a girl, settle down, If you want you can marry. Look at me, I am old, but Im happy. (son-- away away away, I

    know I have to make this

    decision alone - no) Son: All the times that I cried, keeping all the things I knew inside, Its hard, but its harder to ignore it. If they were right, Id agree, but its them you know not me. Now theres a way and I know that I have to go away. I know I have to go. (father-- stay stay stay,

    why must you go and

    Make this decision alone?)

    song: Shower the People singer: James Taylor

    You can play the game and you can act out the part Though you know it wasnt written for you. But tell me, how can you stand there with your broken heart Ashamed of playing the fool? One thing can lead to another; it doesnt take any sacrifice. Oh, father and mother, sister and brother If it feels nice, dont think twice. Just shower the people you love with love. Show them the way that you feel. Things are gonna work out fine if you only will Shower the people you love with love. Show them the way you feel. Things are gonna be much better if you only will You can run but you cannot hide This is widely known. And what you plan to do with your foolish pride, When youre all by yourself alone? Once you tell somebody the way that you feel You can feel it beginning to ease. I think its true what they say about the squeaky wheel Always getting the grease.

    Better to shower the people
