"Truth, Bitter Truth"

"Truth, Bitter Truth"


Where did it go to my youth,
Where did it fade away to?
Who was it told the truth, the bitter truth,
The truth we didn't want to know?

What is it? do you know?
What is it? can I bear it?
Who did it? do I care?
Who is it? when did it happen and where?

Why did you let me know,
How could you think I'd stand it?
You knew I'd pay you back,
I did it, and it happened? do you care?

Where did it go to, my youth?
Where did it fade away to?
Who was it told the truth, the bitter truth,
The truth we didn't want to know?

Who is he? do you know?
This man of power but a fool.
They said he was so high and pure,
They also said that he was cruel.

They killed him, did you see?
They knew he couldn't take it.
They wanted lies? he said the truth.

They did it? and it happened? who cares?

Where did it go to, my youth?
Where did it slip away to?
Who was it told the truth, the bitter truth,
The truth they didn't want to know?

Why did you let me know,
How could you think I'd stand it?
You knew I'd pay you back.
I did it, and it happened? do you care?

What is it? do you know?
Who did it? can I bear it?
Who did it? do I care?
Who is it? when did it happen and where?

What is it? do you know?
Who did it? can I bear it?
Who did it? do I care?
Who is it? when did it happen and where?

Where did it go to, my youth?
Where did it slip away to?
Who was it told the truth, the bitter truth,
The truth I didn't want to know?

"Vagabond Ways"

"Vagabond Ways"


Oh, doctor please, oh, doctor please.
I drink and I take drugs, I love sex and I move around a lot,
I had my first baby at fourteen,
And yes, I guess I do have vagabond ways.
Yes, I guess I do have vagabond ways.

Oh, doctor please, oh, doctor please,
I think you've made a mistake, I'm fine and I don't need people,
You don't understand all my choices,
But yes, I guess I do have vagabond ways,
Yes, I guess I do have vagabond ways.

Please, don't lock me up,

Please, let me stay free.
If you let me go I promise I'll never come back,
I'll take a ship across the sea.
I'm young and poor, and yes I'm afraid,
But I'll stay myself and keep my vagabond ways.

It was a long time ago, they took her child away and she was sterelized.
She died of the drink and the drugs
And yes, I guess she kept those vagabond ways,
Yes, I guess she kept those vagabond ways,
Yes, I guess she kept those vagabond ways.

"Vanilla O'Lay"

"Vanilla O'Lay"


You treated me like a schoolgirl lover,
We never did follow any rules.
Into your arms and I'm running for cover,
All of my strings I've tied to you.

Can you hear the gypsy turnpike, oh it's calling.
So take our things out to the car.
And as the shades of night are fallin'
You're my bright and guiding star.

Vanilla O'Lay, O'Lay, O'Lay, lay-la lay-la.
Vanilla O'Lay, O'Lay, O'Lay, lay-la.
Vanilla O'Lay, O'Lay, O'Lay, lay-la lay-la.
Vanilla O'Lay, O'Lay, O'Lay, lay-la.

Oh my, my, my, my, you're looking better,
Seems like you were never ill.
The doctor, he's gonna send you a letter??
Let the sky up pay the bill.

Vanilla O'Lay, O'Lay, O'Lay, lay-la lay-la.
Vanilla O'Lay, O'Lay, O'Lay, lay-la.

Vanilla O'Lay, O'Lay, O'Lay, lay-la lay-la.
Vanilla O'Lay, O'Lay, O'Lay, lay-la.

John-john the cat, he's getting older
And he can't jump up like we know he should.
So come, put the baby over my shoulder,
We're going out to get some wood.

Vanilla O'Lay, O'Lay, O'Lay, lay-la lay-la.
Vanilla O'Lay, O'Lay, O'Lay, lay-la.
Vanilla O'Lay, O'Lay, O'Lay, lay-la lay-la.
Vanilla O'Lay, O'Lay, O'Lay, lay-la.

Vanilla O'Lay, O'Lay, O'Lay, lay-la lay-la.
Vanilla O'Lay, O'Lay, O'Lay, lay-la.
Vanilla O'Lay, O'Lay, O'Lay, lay-la lay-la.
Vanilla O'Lay, O'Lay, O'Lay, lay-la.

Vanilla O'Lay, O'Lay, O'Lay, lay-la lay-la.
Vanilla O'Lay, O'Lay, O'Lay, lay-la.

"Visions Of Johanna"

"Visions Of Johanna"


Ain't it just like the night to play tricks when you're tryin' to be so quiet?
We sit here stranded, though we're all doin' our best to deny it
And louise holds a handful of rain, temptin' you to defy it
Lights flicker from the opposite loft
In this room the heat pipes just cough
The country music station plays soft
But there's nothing, really nothing to turn off
Just louise and her lover so entwined
And these visions of Johanna that conquer my mind.

Inside the museums, infinity goes up on trial
Voices echo this is what salvation must be like after a while
But mona lisa musta had the highway blues
You can tell by the way she smiles
See the primitive wallflower freeze
When the jelly-faced women all sneeze
Hear the one with the mustache say, "jeeze
I can't find my knees"

Jewels and binoculars hang from the head of the mule
But these visions of Johanna, they make it all seem so cruel.

The peddler now speaks to the countess who's pretending to care for him
Sayin', "name me someone who's not a parasite and I'll go out and say a prayer for him"
But like louise always says
"ya can't look at much, can ya man?"
As she, herself, prepares for him
And madonna, she still hasn't showed
We see the empty cage now corrode
Where her cape of the stage once had flowed
The fiddler, he now steps on the road
He writes ev'rything's been returned which was owed
On the back of the fish trucks that load
While my conscience explodes
The harmonicas play the skeleton keys and the rain
And these visions of Johanna are now all that remain.

"Wait For Me Down By The River"

"Wait For Me Down By The River"


I gave my heart to a gamblin' man,
He only wanted to play.
He told me he'd take me to new orleans town,
By morning we'd be on our way.

He gave me champagne and danced me round,
His fancy words messed up my mind.
He kissed me and called me 'his lady'
And he left his young girl behind.

He told me, "wait for me down by the river
If I'm not back by sunrise, then pray.
I'll be on my way to heaven or hell
And I hear it is such a long way."

I was struck round by the devil,
He took me away to the stars.
I cried out all night for my darling,
But the windows were all locked and barred.

He took this young rose from the garden,
He tore it right out off the ground.
I traded my soul for a rainbow of gold
And the rainbow's come tumbling down.

He told me, "wait for me down by the river,
If I'm not back by sunrise, then pray.
I'll be on my way to heaven or hell

And I hear it is such a long way."

He told me, "wait for me down by the river,
If I'm not back by sunrise, then pray.
I'll be on my way to heaven or hell
And I hear it is such a long way."

He told me, "wait for me down by the river,
If I'm not back by sunrise, then pray.
I'll be on my way to heaven or hell
And I hear it's such a long way."

He told me, "wait for me down by the river
If I'm not back by sunrise, then pray.
I'll be on my way to heaven or hell
And I hear it's such a long way."

He told me, "wait for me down by the river
If I'm not back by sunrise, then pray.
I'll be on my way to heaven or hell
And I hear it is such a long way."

He told me, "wait for me down by the river
If I'm not back by sunrise, then pray.
I'll be on my way..."

"Want To Buy Some Illusions"

"Want To Buy Some Illusions"


Want to buy some illusions
Slightly used, second-hand?
They were lovely illusions,
Reaching high, built on sand.
They had a touch of paradise,
A spell you can't explain,
For in this crazy paradise
You are in love with pain.

Want to buy some illusions
Slightly used, just like new?
Such romantic illusions,
And they're all about you.
Too bad they all fell apart
Like dreams often do.
They were lovely illusions,
But they just wouldn't come true.

Slightly used, just like new,
Such romantic illusions
And they're all about you.
I'd sell them all for a penny,
They make pretty souvenirs.
Take my lovely illusions,

Some for laughs, some for tears.

On this next song, I'm using the translation, a new translation done by one of my best, best, best, best friends in Ireland,
The playwriter and poet, frank mcguinness, and he did a new translation
The threepenny opera about four or five years ago, and I played pirate Jenny in that production at the gate theatre in Dublin.
And I love this translation, I think it's so exceptional.
In this Jenny who is a prostitute and a waitress in a, in a, in a shitty hotel, er, obviously on the docks, and, and macheath is her pimp,
Is imagining, is having a fantasy of what she would do to those who oppress her if she could.

"What Have I Done Wrong"

"What Have I Done Wrong"


What have I done wrong?

It seems I've hurt you once again,
I try so hard but all in vain.
Tears in your eyes you can't disguise,
But please forgive me if you can.
What have I done wrong?

I hate to make you suffer so,
I'm not a child and I should know
Where laughing ends and tears begin

And I must seem so cruel to you.

Come, let me kiss your tender lips
And you will see our love can be.
What have I done wrong?

You turn away when I am here
And yet I know you need not fear.
If I had time to ease your mind
I'd let you know how much I care.
What have I done wrong?

"What Have They Done To The Rain"

"What Have They Done To The Rain"


Just a little rain falling all around,
The grass lifts its head to the heavenly sound.
Just a little rain, just a little rain,
What have they done to the rain?

Just a little boy, standing in the rain,
A gentle rain that falls for years.
And the grass is gone, the boy disappears,
And rain keeps falling like helpless tears
And what have they done to the rain?

Just a little breeze out of the sky,

The leaves nod their head as the breeze blows by.
Just a little breeze with some smoke in its eye,
What have they done to the rain?

Just a little boy, standing in the rain,
A gentle rain that falls for years.
And the grass is gone, the boy disappears,
And rain keeps falling like helpless tears
And what have they done to the rain?
And what have they done to the rain?

"What's The Hurry"

"What's The Hurry"


What's the worry, what's the hurry,
Do you hear me, do you fear me?
You've got the message, you read the story,
You want the power, you need the glory.

Clocks break, time goes by,
Hot sake along the fly,
She laughs on a spin,
He laughs, turns you in.

What's the panic, where's the static,
Do you see me, could you meet me?

I heard the rumour, you've got my number,
But now I see you run for cover.

So you thought you had it made,
Ain't it easy to be afraid,
Feel the pressure, take the bait,
Here it comes again.

Clock breaks, time goes by,
Hot sake along the fly,
She laughs on a spin,
He laughs, turns you in.

"When I Find My Life"

"When I Find My Life"


Oh, I will free the bird in me
Oh, when I find my life.
What I always knew could be
Oh, when I find my life.
I will see the truth in me
Oh, when I find my life.
Oh, when I find my life.

I will let go the pain
Oh, when I find my life.
I will reach beyond the strain
Oh, when I find my life.
Fear of lost and fear of pain
Oh, when I find my life.
Oh, when I find my life.

I remember all the games of shame
And all the lies you told me.

I have worked so hard to learn
And flunked so far in my attempts to let it go by, dear.

And it's so easy
I just opened my eyes.
And it's so hard
To let go.

Oh, I will free the bird in me
Oh, when I find my life.
I will we what I wanna be
Oh, when I find my life.
I am here and I am free.
Oh, when I find my life.

Oh, when I find my life.
Oh, when I find my life.
Oh, when I find my life.
