Blue Dansette Verse 1 In 1968 I came home from summer break My folks said we've something to show you that's great While I was gone they cleared the backyard shed Turned it into a music room instead I walked into the den, you know I'll never forget I heard a record playing on a Blue Dansette Verse 2 In 1965 I'd seen The Beatles live Couldn't see or hear for all the screaming beehives Now I had the albums I could play them loud Singing along I never felt so proud I knew it was a feeling that I'd never forget Listening to those LPs on my Blue Dansette Bridge And now I had a room to call my own Where I could simply be I’d play those songs again & again I knew that music was the key Verse 3 In 1969 Sugar Sugar sounded fine A man on the moon was in the TV Times Radio was playing Something In The Air A new decade arrived In The Summertime glare And when the day was done you know I’ll never forget Stacking up those singles on my Blue Dansette Verse Instrumental Bridge But all good things must come to an end Or so it seems to me We bought a deck from the hi-fi store The world was turning Japanese Verse 4 Many years on and the music’s going strong Just when I thought that the player had gone Well now it’s reborn so never forget You can play your vinyl on a new Dansette Now you can play your vinyl on a new Dansette Now you can play your vinyl on your Blue Dansette © 2021 Murray Webster

Whiskey-A-Go-Go Verse 1 It was one o'clock in the mornin' Under a neon Soho sign Some people say those streets are paved with gold Some say it's rain that makes them shine Verse 2 I was coming down from the bandstand And the audience applause Although it was so many years ago It seems the curtain never falls PreChorus 'cos I can hear the banging of the drum still ringing in my ear Chorus Stepping out from the Whiskey-A-Go-Go Out into the bitter sweet air I couldn't tell where my footsteps were going I only know I'm still getting there Stepping out from the Whiskey-A-Go-Go Out into the shadow it cast I didn't know where those four winds were blowing But I knew that the memory would last And the memory still lasts Verse 3 Now it's one o'clock in the morning And my glass is all drunk dry I fill my songs with heady words And try to reach that same old high PreChorus 'cos I still hear the crashing of the cymbals ringing in my ear Chorus Bridge Well time’s moved on and nothing’s changed ‘cos the music always kept me sane There’s some you win and some you lose I'm standin' on this stage once again and singin’ out these blues Chorus (half tacet) Chorus © 2021 Murray Webster

Tell Me It's You Verse 1 When I ask if there is someone who would hold my hand Tell Me It's You I can see that you are kind and you would understand So Tell Me It's You Verse 2 When I ask if there's a girl who wants to hold me tight Tell Me It's You I don't want nobody else to hold me close tonight So Tell Me It's You Bridge Tell Me It's You 'cos you're the only one And if it's true Our love could be such fun Ooh! Verse 3 So when I ask you who could love me for eternity Tell Me It's You I don't need another girl to share this life with me So Tell Me It's You Instrumental Bridge Verse 3 Coda Tell Me It's You Tell Me It's You Ooh Ooh! © 2021 Murray Webster
