City Magic
written by Les Dudek
 
1st verse There is some kind of mystery about the city
A different story on every street
   
chorus City magic, modern classic place to be
City magic, neon lights as far as the eyes can see
City magic, sure a plastic place to be
   
2nd verse Taxi driver, man of the hour
Knows the place to go
The moon is shining
I just can't hold back my soul
   
  (chorus section 2x)
   
Sad Clown
written by Les Dudek
 
1st chorus

I'm a sad clown
Been a fool
She colored my feelings
Midnight blue

   
1st verse

She grew up in
A cold-hearted town
A desperate girl
And highway bound
She married young
Dropped out of school
Full of fire
A woman too soon

   
  (1st chorus section)
   
2nd verse

I met her in a small town bar
Drinkin' beer and playin' guitar
She had no money
Livin' on the streets
She gave me her love
Wasn't for keeps

   
2nd chorus

I'm a sad clown
Been a fool
Been stepped on
By the likes of you
Look out

   
  (solo section)
   
3rd verse

I still see her
From time to time
Hotel hoppin'
Drinkin' every man's wine
From innocence to guilt
In any human's eyes
But God I loved her
Be kind when she dies

   
  (1st chorus section)
Don't Stop Now
written by Les Dudek
 

Instrumental

Each Morning
written by Les Dudek
 
1st verse

Early mornings on me
Lord and I'm so lonely
It's hard to face the mirror
Much less face the day
I'll lie back down in bed
And smoke a cigarette instead
And dream about a woman I may never see
Lyin' down beside her meadows green

   
2nd verse

Her eyes are on me
Like sun a shining
Giving light to the shadows of my blues
Love her laughing
Love her sigh
And I wish that I could hold her for a lifetime
But a dreams a dream
Born to die

   
chorus

Sometimes I'll just let my mind fade away
Fade away
But lately I'm inclined to let things stay this way
Stay this way

   
  (solo section)
   
3rd verse

Traveling through this place unknown
Will this old gypsy find his home
He may lose his way but never
Will he lose the memory
Of your laughter
Of your eyes
Oh I wish that I could hold you for a lifetime
But a dreams a dream
Born to die

   
  (chorus section)
It Can Do
written by Les Dudek
 
1st verse

Well here it comes that lowdown feeling
One I'm sure you'll understand
Don't try to fight it, It's gonna get 'cha
Just won't let go of your hands

   
1st chorus

It helps you smile for a while
It makes you seek the streets
An adventure just waitin' for you
Guess I'm to blame to make it sound so sane
But this groove can do
It can do it to you
Look out

   
2nd verse

I can't explain it but it'll find ya
Post office groove, c.o.d.
Sometimes it drives those cats up the trees
Little geisha girls, shaking their leaves

   
2nd chorus Smile for a while
Seek the streets
Those adventures just waitin' for you
Guess I'm to blame to make it sound so sane
But this groove can do
It can do it to you
Here it comes
   
 

(solo section)

   
3rd verse Well here it comes
That gotcha feeling
Sometime, anytime it'll come through
You can turn your head and
Try to be cool
But this get-down groove
Will make you shake like a fool
   
  (2nd chorus section)
Take The Time
written by Les Dudek
 
intro

You better take the time
You better take the time out baby right now

   
1st verse

If you took the time
I'm sure you'd plainly see
That all and all I'm not the man you thought that I would be
'Cause honey I get seasick swimmin' in your dreams
And your breath in the mornin'
Is making me claw the screens

   
chorus

Time out baby, 'cause you're dragging me
Take the time
Time out baby 'cause you don't act naturally
You better take the time

   
2nd verse Well I ain't got not one cent
All my bucks went to the rent
Living night to night
Been escapin' the sun
When I'm with you I get queasy
Livin' with you sure ain't easy
You seem to be havin' all of the fun
   
 

(chorus section)

   
  (solo section)
   
3rd verse So if you took the time
I'm sure you would agree
That you were not the woman
That God had planned for me
I can't stand your lipstick
You cat's making me sneeze
And those roller's got to go
So give me back my keys
   
  (chorus section 2x)
Cruisin' Groove
written by Les Dudek
 
1st verse

I love my women, love my whiskey
Both are fun and both are risky
For a man who's always on the run
I've been over the mountain
I've seen red
Lots of women done creased my bed
Couldn't see to settle down with one

   
1st chorus

Just make me move, just give me a groove
Just give me a cruisin' groove
Yeah, yeah

   
2nd verse Hey little mama
Are you a girl of the world
Do you speak my lingo
Crazy four-letter words
Sure enough got the talent
For dryin' up my lips
My mind starts to wander
When you move your hips
   
2nd chorus

Just give me a groove, just make me move
Just give me a cruisin' groove
Yeah, yeah

   
1st bridge Well I don't need nothin' to remind me of where I been
It takes more than one woman to bring out all my sins
I wanta be on the move, so come on baby
Hop on my cruisin' groove
Yeah, you know what I'm talking about mama
   
  (solo section)

Just give me a cruisin' groove
Yeah, yeah
   
2nd bridge Well I don't need nothin' to remind me of where I been
It takes more than one woman to bring out all my sins
I wanna be on the move, so come on baby
Is it understood, I wanna be on the move
So come on baby, hop on my cruisin' groove
Yeah
What A Sacrifice
written by Les Dudek & Curley Cooke
 
1st verse

Thought about the folks back home
All those miles we had roamed
Still can see your pretty hair
When I come back will she be there

   
1st chorus

You flew away like a kite
Hope you find your life
Pray they treat you right
What a sacrifice

   
2nd verse Miles and miles I have roamed
Lookin’ for that home sweet home
Thought I had the love with you
But I found out you weren’t true
   
2nd chorus

You made me feel so nice
Ready for wedding rice
Then you said no dice
What a sacrifice

   
  (solo section)
   
3rd verse Lookin’ back on time that’s gone
Realized I might’ve been wrong
But Macon took you for a ride
Broke us up for their own pride
And you were young and didn’t understand
That you had found your lifetime man
   
3rd chorus Maybe someday you’ll see
It gets lonely being free
Don’t be wrong twice
What a sacrifice
