Butter Love

The Vocal Chords (featuring *The Cud Chewing Cows) are emulating some of the artists we love from throughout the 20th Century and closely re-creating their sound.

Track Name: Baby It's You
"Baby It's You"

Sha la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la

It's not the way you smile that touched my heart. (sha la la la la)
It's not the way you kiss that tears me apart.

Uh, oh, many, many, many nights go by,
I sit alone at home and I cry over you.
What can I do.
Can't help myself, 'cause baby, it's you.
Baby, it's you.

You should hear what they say about you, "cheat," "cheat."
They say, they say you never never never ever been true. (cheat cheat)

Uh oh,
It doesn't matter what they say,
I know I'm gonna love you any old way.
What can I do, and it's true.
Don't want nobody, nobody, 'cause baby, it's you. (sha la la la la la la)
Baby, it's you. (sha la la la la la la)

Uh oh,
It doesn't matter what they say,
I know I'm gonna love you any old way.
What can I do, when it's true.
Don't want nobody, nobody, 'cause baby, it's you. (sha la la la la la la)
Baby, it's you. (sha la la la la la la)
Don't leave me all alone...
Come on home…
Cuz Baby It’s You…
Track Name: Because
It's right that I should care about you
And try to make you happy when you're blue
It's right, it's right to feel the way I do
Because, because I love you

It's wrong to say I don't think of you
'Cause when you say these things
You know it makes me blue

Give me one kiss and I'll be happy
Just, just to be with you
Give me, give me, a chance to be near you
Because, because I love you
Track Name: Words Of Love
Hold me close and tell me how you feel
Tell me love is real

Words of love you, whisper soft and true
Darling, I love you

Let me hear you say the words I want to hear

Darling, when you're near

Words of love you, whisper soft and true
Darling, I love you
Track Name: Puff, The Magic Dragon
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee,
Little Jackie paper loved that rascal puff,
And brought him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff. oh

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee,
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee.

Together they would travel on a boat with billowed sail
Jackie kept a lookout perched on puffs gigantic tail,
Noble kings and princes would bow whene'r they came,
Pirate ships would lower their flags when puff roared out his name. oh!

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee,
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee.

A dragon lives forever but not so little boys
Painted wings and giant strings make way for other toys.
One grey night it happened, Jackie Paper came no more
And Puff that mighty dragon, he ceased his fearless roar.

His head was bent in sorrow, green scales fell like rain,
Puff no longer went to play along the cherry lane.
Without his life-long friend, puff could not be brave,
So puff that mighty dragon sadly slipped into his cave. oh!

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee,
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee.
Track Name: My Baby Just Cares For Me (Solo)
My baby don't care for shows
My baby don't care for clothes
My baby just cares for me
My baby don't care for cars and races
My baby don't care for high-tone places
Liz Taylor is not his style
And even Lana Turner's smile
Is somethin' he can't see
My baby don't care who knows
My baby just cares for me

Baby, my baby don't care for shows
And he don't even care for clothes
He cares for me
My baby don't care
For cars and races

Baby don't care for
He don't care for high-tone places

Liz Taylor is not his style
And even Liberace's smile

Is something he can't see
Is something he can't see
I wonder what's wrong with baby
My baby just cares for
My baby just cares for
My baby just cares for me
Track Name: For Me Formidable
You are the one for me, for me, for me, formidable
You are my love very, very, very, veritable

Et je voudrais pouvoir un jour enfin te le dire
Te l' ecrire
Dans la langue de Shakespeare

My daisy, daisy, daisy, desirable
Je suis malheureux d' avoir si peu de mots
A t'offrir en cadeaux
Darling I love you, love you, darling I want you
Et puis c' est a peu pres tout
You are the one for me, for me, for me, formidable

You are the one for me, for me, for me, formidable
But how can you
See me, see me, see me, si minable
Je ferais mieux d'aller choisir mon vocabulaire
Pour te plaire
Dans la langue de Moliere
Toi, tes eyes, ton nose, tes lips adorables
Tu n'as pas compris tant pis
Ne t'en fais pas et viens-t-en dans mes bras
Darling I love you, love you,
Darling, I want you
Et puis le reste on s'en fout
You are the one for me, for me, for me, formidable
Je me demande meme
Pourquoi je t'aime
Toi qui te moques de moi et de tout
Avec ton air canaille, canaille, canaille
How can I love you
Track Name: San Quentin
San Quentin, you've been livin' hell to me
You've blistered me since 1963
I've seen 'em come and go and I've seen them die
And long ago I stopped askin' why

San Quentin, I hate every inch of you.

You've cut me and you scarred me thru an' thru.
And I'll walk out a wiser weaker man;
Mr Congressman you can’t understand.

San Quentin, what good do you think you do?
Do you think I'll be different when you're through?
You bent my heart and mind and you warped my soul,
but your stone walls turn my blood a little cold.

San Quentin, may you rot and burn in hell.

May your walls fall and may I live to tell.
May all the world forget you ever stood.
And may all the world regret you did no good.

San Quentin, I hate every inch of you.
Track Name: Up On The Roof
When this old world starts getting me down
And people are just too much for me to face
I climb right up to the top of the stairs
And all my cares just drift right into space

On the roof, It’s peaceful as can be
and there the world below can’t bother me
Let me tell you now

When I come home feelin' tired and beat
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet

I get away from the hustling crowd
And all that rat race noise down in the street

On the roof, the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so
Let's go up on the roof

At night the stars put on a show for free
And darling, you can share it all with me
I keep a tellin' you

a-Right smack dab in the middle of town
I found a paradise that's trouble proof

And if this world starts getting you down
There's room enough for two, up on the roof
Up on the roof

Oh, come on, baby

Oh, come on, honey
Track Name: My Baby Just Cares for Me (with Harmonies)
My baby don't care for shows
My baby don't care for clothes
My baby just cares for me
My baby don't care for cars and races
My baby don't care for high-tone places
Liz Taylor is not his style
And even Lana Turner's smile
Is somethin' he can't see
My baby don't care who knows
My baby just cares for me

Baby, my baby don't care for shows
And he don't even care for clothes
He cares for me
My baby don't care
For cars and races

Baby don't care for
He don't care for high-tone places

Liz Taylor is not his style
And even Liberace's smile

Is something he can't see
Is something he can't see
I wonder what's wrong with baby
My baby just cares for
My baby just cares for
My baby just cares for me
Track Name: Us And Them
Us, and them
And after all we're only ordinary men.
Me, and you.
God only knows it's not what we would choose to do.

Forward he cried,, from the rear
and the front rank died.
And the general sat, and the lines on the map
moved from side to side.

Black and blue
And who knows which is which and who is who.

Up and down.
(but) And in the end it's only round and round.

Haven't you heard it's a battle of words
The poster bearer cried.
Listen son, said the man, with the gu-u-u-n —
There's room for you inside.

"I mean, they're not gunna kill ya, so if you give 'em a quick short,
sharp, shock, they won't do it again. Dig it? I mean he get off
lightly, 'cos I would've given him a thrashing - I only hit him once!
It was only a difference of opinion, but really...I mean good manners
don't cost nothing do they, eh?"

Down and out
It can't be helped but there's a lot of it about.
With, without.
And who'll deny it's what the fighting's all about?

Out of the way, it's a busy day
I've got things on my mind.
For want of the price of tea and a slice
The old man died.
Track Name: Don't Think Twice It's All Right
It ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe,
It don't matter, anyhow.
And it ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe,
If you don't know by now.
When the rooster crows at the break of dawn,
Look out your window and I'll be gone
You're the reason I'm travelin' on,
but Don't think twice it's all right.

It ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe,
Light I never know'd
It ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe,
I'm on the dark side of the road.
Still I wish there-were somethin' - you would do or say
To try and make me change my mind and stay,
We never did too much talkin' anyway,
so Don't think twice it's all right.

I'm walkin' down that long, lonesome road, babe,
Where I'm bound, I can't tell
(but) goodbye is too good a word gal,
So I'll just say "fair-thee-well"
I ain't saying you treated me unkind,
You could uhv done better, but I don't mind
You just sorta wasted my precious time,
but Don't think twice it's all right.

It ain't no use in callin' out my name gal,
Like you never did before
It ain't no use in callin' out my name gal,
I can't hear you anymore.
I'm a thinkin' and a wonderin' all the way down the road
I once loved a woman, a child I'm told,
I gave her my heart but she wanted my soul,
Don't think twice it's all right.
Track Name: A World Without Love
Please lock me away
And don't allow the day
Here inside, where I hide with my loneliness

I don't care what they say
I won't stay in a world without love

Birds sing out of tune
And rain clouds hide the moon
I'm okay, here I stay with my loneliness

I don't care what they say
I won't stay in a world without love

So I wait and in a while
I will see my true love smile
She may come, I know not when
When she does, I'll lose
So baby, until then

Lock me away
And don't allow the day

Here inside, where I hide with my loneliness

I don't care what they say
I won't stay in a world without love

So I wait and in a while
I will see my true love smile
She may come, I know not when
When she does, I'll lose
So baby, until then

Lock me away
And don't allow the day
Here inside, where I hide with my loneliness

I don't care what they say
I won't stay in a world without love
I don't care what they say
I won't stay in a world without love
Track Name: Teach Your Children
You, who are on the road
Must have a code, that you can live by

And so, become yourself
Because the past, is just a good-bye.

Teach, your children well,
Their father's hell, did slowly go by,

And feed, them on your dreams
The one they picks, the one you'll know by.

Don't you ever ask them why, if they told you, you would cry,
So just look at them and sigh-h

And-know they love you.

And you, of tender years,

Can't know the fears that _your elders grew by,
And so please help them with your youth,

They seek the truth, before they can die.

Teach, your parents well,
The children's hell, will slowly go by,

And feed them on your dreams
The one they picks, the one you'll know by.

Don't you ever ask them why, if they told you, you would cry,
So just look at them and sighhhhhhhh and know they love you.
