Sing with Us Sounds of the Sixties


Help! When I was younger, so much younger than today, I never needed anybody's help in anyway. But now these days are gone, I'm not so self assured, Now I find I've changed my mind, I've 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 anyway. But now these days are gone, I'm not so self assured, Now I find I've changed my mind, I've 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 meeeee,


When I’m Sixty four When I get older losing my hair, Many years from now. Will you still be sending me a Valentine Birthday greetings bottle of wine. If I'd been out till quarter to three Would you lock the door, Will you still need me, will you still feed me, When I'm sixty-four I could be handy, mending a fuse When your lights have gone. You can knit a sweater by the fireside Sunday morning go for a ride, Doing the garden, digging the weeds, Who could ask for more. Will you still need me, will you still feed me, When I'm sixty-four Send me a postcard, drop me a line Stating point of view Indicate precisely what you mean to say Yours sincerely, wasting away Give me your answer, fill in a form Mine for evermore Will you still need me, will you still feed me. When I'm sixty-four


Down town

When you're alone and life is making you lonely You can always go - downtown When you've got worries, all the noise and the hurry Seems to help, I know - downtown Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty How can you lose? The lights are much brighter there You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares So go downtown, things'll be great when you're Downtown - no finer place, for sure Downtown - everything's waiting for you Downtown Don't hang around and let your problems surround you There are movie shows - downtown Maybe you know some little places to go to Where they never close - downtown Just listen to the rhythm of a gentle bossa nova You'll be dancing with him too before the night is over Happy again The lights are much brighter there You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares So go downtown, where all the lights are bright Downtown - waiting for you tonight Downtown - you're gonna be all right now Downtown When you're alone and life is making you lonely You can always go - downtown When you've got worries, all the noise and the hurry Seems to help, I know - downtown


And you may find somebody kind to help and understand you Someone who is just like you and needs a gentle hand to Guide them along So maybe I'll see you there We can forget all our troubles, forget all our cares So go downtown, things'll be great when you're Downtown - don't wait a minute for Downtown - everything's waiting for you Downtown, downtown, downtown, downtown ...


Ob la Di Ob la da Desmond has his barrow in the market place... Molly is the singer in a band... Desmond says to Molly "Girl, I like your face" And Molly says this as she takes him by the hand... Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!... Lala how the life goes on... Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!... Lala how the life goes on. Desmond takes a barrow to the jewellers store, Buys a twenty carat golden ring, Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door And as he gives it to her she begins to sing Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!... Lala how the life goes on... Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!... Lala how the life goes on. In a couple of years they have built a home sweet home, With a couple of kids running in the yard, Of Desmond and Molly Jones... Happy ever after in the market place... Molly lets the children lend a hand... Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face... And in the evening she's a singer with the band... Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!... Lala how the life goes on... Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!... Lala how the life goes on.


Under the Boardwalk Oh when the sun beats down and burns the tar up on the roof And your shoes get so hot, you wish your tired feet were fire-proof Under the boardwalk, down by the sea, On a blanket with my baby is where I'll be (Under the boardwalk) Out of the sun (Under the boardwalk) Havin' some fun (Under the boardwalk) People walking above (Under the boardwalk) We'll be making love Under the boardwalk, From the park you hear the happy sound of a carousel You can almost taste the hot dogs and French fries they sell Under the boardwalk, down by the sea, On a blanket with my baby is where I'll be (Under the boardwalk) Out of the sun (Under the boardwalk) We'll be havin' some fun (Under the boardwalk) People walking above (Under the boardwalk) We'll be making love Under the boardwalk, boardwalk


Let it be When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me Speaking words of wisdom, let it be And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me Speaking words of wisdom, let it be Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be Whisper words of wisdom, let it be And when the broken hearted people living in the world agree There will be an answer, let it be For though they may be parted, there is still a chance that they will see There will be an answer, let it be Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be There will be an answer, let it be Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be Whisper words of wisdom, let it be And when the night is cloudy there is still a light that shines on me Shine until tomorrow, let it be I wake up to the sound of music, Mother Mary comes to me Speaking words of wisdom, let it be Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be There will be an answer, let it be Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be Whisper words of wisdom, let it be


Return to Sender I gave a letter to the postman, he put it in his sack. Bright and early next morning, he brought my letter back. She wrote upon it: Return to sender, address unknown. No such number, no such zone. We had a quarrel, a lover's spat I write I'm sorry but my letter keeps coming back. So then I dropped it in the mailbox And sent it special D. Bright and early next morning it came right back to me. She wrote upon it: Return to sender, address unknown. No such person, no such zone. This time I'm gonna take it myself and put it right in her hand. And if it comes back the very next day then I'll understand - the writing on it Return to sender, address unknown. No such number, no such zone. Return to sender, address unknown. No such number, no such zone.

Daydream Believer Oh, I could hide 'neath the wings Of the bluebird as she sings. The six o'clock alarm would never ring, But it rings and I rise; Wipe the sleep out of my eyes. My shavin' razor's cold and it stings. Cheer up, Sleepy Jean. Oh, what can it mean To a daydream believer And a homecoming queen? I once thought of you As a white knight on his steed. Now you know how happy we can be. Oh, and our good times start and end Without dollar one to spend, But how much, baby, do we really need? Cheer up, Sleepy Jean. Oh, what can it mean To a daydream believer And a homecoming queen? Cheer up, Sleepy Jean. Oh, what can it mean To a daydream believer And a homecoming queen?


Hey Jude Hey Jude don't make it bad Take a sad song and make it better Remember to let her into your heart Then you can start to make it better Hey Jude don't be afraid You were made to go out and get her The minute you let her under your skin Then you begin to make it better And any time you feel the pain, Hey Jude, refrain Don't carry the world upon your shoulders For well you know that it's a fool who plays it cool By making his world a little colder Da da da da da, da da da da Hey Jude don't let me down You have found her now go and get her Remember to let her into your heart Then you can start to make it better So let it out and let it in Hey Jude begin You're waiting for someone to perform with And don't you know that it's just you Hey Jude you'll do The movement you need is on your shoulder Da da da da da, da da da da


Hey Jude don't make it bad Take a sad song and make it better Remember to let her under your skin Then you'll begin to make it better Better, better, better, better, better,better. Daa da da dada da daaa Dada da daa Hey Jude.
