      Song: Around The World In A Day

      Lyrics below:

      [Verse 1]
      Open your heart, open your mind
      A train is leaving all day
      A wonderful trip through our time
      And laughter is all you pay

      [Chorus]
      Around the world in a day[x2]

      [Verse 2]
      Now dig
      Loneliness already knows you
      There ain’t no reason to stay
      Come here and take my hand, I’ll show you
      I think I know a better way, you all

      [Chorus]

      [Bridge]
      Ooh-la-la[x2]
      No shouting[x3]

      [Verse 3]
      The little one will escort you
      Two places within your mind
      The former is red, white, and blue
      The ladder is purple, come on and climb

      [Chorus][x4]

      [Outro]
      A government of love and music boundless in its unifying power
      A nation of alms, the production, sharing ideas, a shower of flowers

        Song: Paisley Park

        Lyrics below:

        One, two, one, two, three

        There is a park that is known
        For the face it attracts
        Colorful people whose hair
        On 1 side is swept back
        The smile on their faces
        It speaks of profound inner peace
        Ask where they’re going
        They’ll tell you nowhere
        They’ve taken a lifetime lease
        On Paisley Park

        The girl on the seesaw is laughing
        For love is the color
        This place imparts (Paisley Park)
        Admission is easy, just say you
        Believe and come to this
        Place in your heart
        Paisley Park is in your heart

        There is a woman who sits
        All alone by the pier
        Her husband was naughty
        And caused his wife so many tears
        He died without knowing forgiveness
        And now she is sad, so sad
        Maybe she’ll come to the park
        And forgive him
        And life won’t be so bad
        In Paisley Park

        The girl on the seesaw is laughing
        For love is the color
        This place imparts (Paisley Park)
        Admission is easy, just say you
        Believe and come to this
        Place in your heart
        Paisley Park is in your heart

        See the man cry as the city
        Condemns where he lives
        Memories die but taxes
        He’ll still have to give
        (Who) Whoever said that elephants
        Were stronger than mules?
        Come 2 the park
        And play with us
        There aren’t any rules
        In Paisley Park

        The girl on the seesaw is laughing
        For love is the color
        This place imparts (Paisley Park)
        Admission is easy, just say you
        Believe and come to this
        Place in your heart
        Paisley Park is in your heart

        The girl on the seesaw is laughing
        For love is the color
        This place imparts (Paisley Park)
        Admission is easy, just say you
        Believe and come to this
        Place in your heart
        Paisley Park is in your heart

        Your heart, your heart
        Paisley Park
        Your heart, your heart, your heart (sing, sing it)
        Paisley Park

          Song: Condition Of The Heart

          Lyrics below:

          There was a girl in Paris
          Whom he sent a letter to
          Hoping she would answer back
          Now wasn’t that a fool
          Hardy notion on the part of a
          Sometimes lonely musician
          Acting out a whim is only good
          For a condition of the heart

          There was a dame from London
          Who insisted that he love her
          Then left him for a real prince
          From Arabia, now isn’t that
          A shame that sometimes money
          Buys you everything and nothing
          Love, it only seems to buy a
          Terminal condition of the heart

          Thinking about you driving me crazy
          My friends all say it’s just a phase, but oh oh
          Every day is a yellow day
          I’m blinded by the daisies in your yard

          There was a woman from the ghetto
          Who made funny faces just like
          Clara Bow, how was I to know
          That she would wear the same
          Cologne as you and giggle the same
          Giggle that you do?
          Whenever I would act a fool, the fool
          With a condition of the heart

          Thinking about you driving me crazy
          My friends all say it’s just a phase, but oh oh
          Every single day is a yellow day
          I’m blinded by the daisies in your yard

          There was a girl (There was a girl in Paris)
          Whom he sent a letter to (Whom he sent a letter to)
          (Hoping she would answer back)
          She never answered back and now (wasn’t that a foolhardy)
          He’s got a condition of the heart (notion)

            Song: Raspberry Beret

            Lyrics below:

            [Verse 1]
            I was working part time in a five-and-dime
            My boss was Mr. McGee
            He told me several times that he didn’t like my kind
            Cause I was a bit too leisurely
            Seems that I was busy doing something close to nothing
            But different than the day before
            That’s when I saw her, Ooh, I saw her
            She walked in through the out door, out door
            She wore a…

            [Hook]
            Raspberry beret
            The kind you find in a second hand store
            Raspberry beret
            And if it was warm she wouldn’t wear much more
            Raspberry beret
            I think I love her

            [Verse 2]
            Built like she was
            She had the nerve to ask me
            If I planned to do her any harm
            So, look here
            I put her on the back of my bike
            And-a we went riding
            Down by old man Johnson’s farm
            I said now, overcast days never turned me on
            But something about the clouds
            And her mixed
            She wasn’t too bright
            But I could tell when she kissed me
            She knew how to get her kicks
            She wore a…

            [Hook]

            [Verse 3]
            The rain sounds so cool when it hits the barn roof
            And the horses wonder who you are
            Thunder drowns out what the lightning sees
            You feel like a movie star
            Listen, they say the first time ain’t the greatest
            But I tell you, if I had the chance to do it all again
            I wouldn’t change a stroke
            Cause baby I’m the most
            With a girl as fine as she was then

              Song: Tamborine

              Lyrics below:

              Oh my God here you are
              Prettiest thing in life I’ve ever seen
              Close my eyes what’s it like
              What’s it like inside your tambourine?

              Oh my God, there I go
              Falling in love with the face in a magazine (uh oh, not again)
              All alone by myself
              Me and I play my tambourine

              Tambourine
              Long days, lonely nights
              Tambourine
              Long days, lonely nights
              Tambourine

              I don’t care for one night stands
              With trolley cars
              That juggle seventeen
              I just want to settle down and
              Play around
              My baby’s tambourine

              Tambourine what are you
              Why are you the star of
              All my dreams
              (Star of all my dreams, are you a good tambourine)
              Are you good, are you bad
              Are you just unnecessary means

              Tambourine
              Trolley cars

              Long days, lonely nights
              Too bad we’re not allowed to scream (yeah, yeah, too bad)
              Guess that I’ll stay at home
              All alone and play my tambourine

              Tambourine
              The tambourine

                Song: American

                Lyrics below:

                [Intro]
                Yeah
                Peace!

                [Verse 1]
                Aristocrats on a mountain climb
                Making money, losing time
                Communism is just a word
                But if the government turn over
                It’ll be the only word that’s heard

                [Chorus 1]
                America, America
                God shed his grace on thee
                America, America
                Keep the children free

                [Verse 2]
                Little sister making minimum wage
                Living in a one room jungle-monkey cage
                Can’t get over, she’s almost dead
                She may not be in the black
                But she’s happy she isn’t in the red

                [Chorus 1]

                [Chorus 2]
                Freedom
                Love
                Joy
                Peace

                [Verse 3]
                Jimmy Nothing never went to school
                They made him pledge allegiance
                He said it wasn’t cool
                Nothing made Jimmy proud
                Now Jimmy lives on a mushroom cloud

                [Chorus 1][x2]

                [Chorus 2]

                [Outro]
                Boom[x4]
                The bomb go
                Boom[x4]
                The bomb go boom
                Teacher, why won’t Jimmy pledge allegiance?

                  Song: Pop Life

                  Lyrics below:

                  What’s the matter with your life
                  Is the poverty bringing you down?
                  Is the mailman jerking you ’round?
                  Did he put your million dollar check
                  In someone else’s box?

                  Tell me, what’s the matter with your world
                  Was it a boy when you wanted a girl? (boy when you wanted a girl)
                  Don’t you know straight hair ain’t got no curl (no curl)
                  Life it ain’t real funky
                  Unless it’s got that pop
                  Dig it

                  Pop life
                  Everybody needs a thrill
                  Pop life
                  We all got a space to fill
                  Pop life
                  Everybody can’t be on top
                  But life it ain’t real funky
                  Unless it’s got that pop
                  Dig it

                  Tell me, what’s that underneath your hair?
                  Is there anybody living there? (anybody living there)
                  You can’t get over, if you say you just don’t care (don’t care)
                  Show me a boy who stays in school
                  And I’ll show you a boy aware
                  Dig it

                  Oh
                  What you putting in your nose?
                  Is that where all your money goes (is that where your money goes)
                  The river of addiction flows
                  You think it’s hot, but there won’t be no water
                  When the fire blows
                  Dig it

                  Pop life

                    Song: The Ladder

                    Lyrics below:

                    Once upon a time in the land of Sin-aplenty
                    There lived a king who didn’t deserve to be
                    He knew not where he came from
                    Nor where he was going
                    He never once said thank you, never please

                    Now this king he had a subject named Electra
                    Who loved him with a passion, uncontested
                    For him each day she had a smile
                    But it didn’t matter
                    The king was looking for the ladder

                    Everybody’s looking for the ladder
                    Everybody wants salvation of the soul
                    The steps you take are no easy road
                    But the reward is great
                    For those who want for go

                    A feeling of self-worth will caress you
                    The size of the whole wide world will decrease
                    The love of God’s creation will undress you
                    And time spent alone my friend, will cease

                    Everybody’s looking for the answers
                    How the story started and how it will end
                    What’s the use in half a story, half a dream
                    You have to climb all of the steps in between (yeah, we ride)

                    Everybody’s looking for the ladder
                    Everybody wants salvation of the soul
                    The steps you take are no easy road
                    But the reward is great
                    For those who want to go (I do)

                    Everybody, everybody’s looking (Everybody’s looking for the answers)
                    For the answers
                    Everybody wants to know how the story (How the story started)
                    Started and how it will end (started and how it will end)
                    What’s the use in half a story, (What’s the use in half a story)
                    Half a dream (half of a dream)
                    You, you gotta climb, you gotta climb (you have to climb all)
                    All of the steps in between (the steps in between)

                    Everybody
                    Everybody’s looking for that ladder (Everybody’s looking for the ladder)
                    Everybody wants salvation of the soul (Everybody wants salvation of the soul)
                    The steps you take are no easy road (the steps you take are no easy road)
                    But the reward is great (the reward is great)
                    For those who want to go, (for those who want to go)
                    Those who want to go

                    Everybody, everybody wants (Everybody’s looking for the answers)
                    An answer
                    Anyone who know how the story (How the story started)
                    Started, how it will end (started and how it will end)
                    Will it be lonely in the world (What’s the use in half a story)
                    What’s the use? (half of a dream)

                      Song: Temptation

                      Lyrics below:

                      [Intro]
                      Sex
                      Temptation
                      Lust
                      Pop, go mama

                      [Verse 1]
                      Everybody on this earth has got a vice
                      And mine, little darling, mine is the opposite of ice
                      Mine is the running hot water of the daughter of morality
                      In other words, this little prince thinks a lot about you, see?
                      Baby, baby, baby
                      I’m guilty in the first degree

                      [Chorus]
                      Temptation
                      Working my body with a hot flash of animal lust
                      Temptation
                      All my fingers in the pool go splash we must

                      [Verse 2]
                      Everybody in this room
                      Everybody in this room has got an urge
                      What’s yours, baby?
                      Mine is temptation, it reigns at a party where lovers splurge
                      Pop go mama when daddy gets a little 2 much
                      You know what I’m talking about?
                      Purple electricity whenever our bodies touch
                      Oh baby, I love it when our bodies touch

                      [Chorus][x3]

                      [Bridge]
                      Temptation
                      I’m not talking about just ordinary temptation, people
                      I’m talking about the kind of temptation that’ll make you do things
                      Oh, oh, temptation
                      Oh, darling, I can almost taste the wetness between your
                      Temptation, temptation
                      I’m not talking about any old kind of temptation, people
                      I’m talking about, I’m talking about, sexual temptation
                      A lover
                      I need a lover, a lover, I need a… right now
                      You, I want you
                      I want you in the worst way
                      I want you

                      [Outro]
                      Oh, silly man, that’s not how it works
                      You have to want her for the right reasons
                      I do!
                      You don’t, now die
                      No! No!
                      Let me go, let me go
                      I’m sorry
                      I’ll be good
                      This time I promise
                      Love is more important than sex
                      Now I understand
                      I have to go now
                      I don’t know when I’ll return
                      Good-bye
