"CARPENTERS" (self-titled) 1971

Rainy Days And Mondays

Talkin' to myself and feelin' old
Sometimes I'd like to quit
Nothing ever seems to fit
Hangin' around
Nothing to do but frown
Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down.

What I've got they used to call the blues
Nothin' is really wrong
Feelin' like I don't belong
Walkin' around
Some kind of lonely clown
Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down.

Funny but it seems I always wind up here
with you
Nice to know somebody loves me

Funny but it seems that it's the only thing to do
Run and find the one who loves me.

What I feel has come and gone before
No need to talk it out
We know what it's all about
Hangin' around
Nothing to do but frown
Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down.

Saturday

Saturday began just the same as other days
But ended up different in many ways
Love is in my world since Saturday
 
Mornin' came but somehow it didn't seem the same
The sadness of Friday had somehow changed
To the happy sounds of Saturday
Saturday, ever-loving Saturday
 
I whistle to bluebirds
I tried to tell them how you brought me sunshine
My heads filled with new words
That sing to the sounds of happy day after Friday
 
(*) Come and see the flowers of love she gave to me
The touches of laughter and harmony
To the happy sounds of Saturday
Saturday, ever-loving Saturday
 
My head's full of new words
Sing to the sounds of the day after Friday
Day after Friday
 
Repeat (*)
 
Saturday, Saturday, ever-loving Saturday

Let Me Be The One


Some sleepless night if you should find yourself alone
 
(*) Let me be the one you run to
Let me be the one you come to
When you need someone to turn to
Let me be the one
 
To set things right
When this whole worlds turned upside down
 
Repeat (*)
 
For love and understanding, to find a quiet place
For silent understanding, a loving touch
Come to me when things go wrong
And theres no love to light the way
 
Repeat (*)
 
Let me be the one you run to
Let me be the one you come to
When you need someone to turn to
Need someone to turn to
Let me be the one you run to
Let me be the one you come to
When you need someone to turn to
Need someone to turn to
Let me be the one you run to
Let me be the one you come to
When you need someone to turn to

(A Place To) Hideaway


I've got to find a place to hideaway
Far from the shadows of my mind
Sunlight and laughter, love ever after
For how I long to find a place to hideaway
 
I hear you whisper and I must obey,
Blindly follow where you'll be
Knowing tomorrow brings only sorrow
Where can I go to find a place to hideaway
 
Bright colored pinwheels go round in my head
I run through the mist of the wine
 
(*) The night and the music remind me instead
The world once was mine
I'll save my pennies for a rainy day
But where can I buy another you?
Dreams are for sleeping
Love is for weeping
Oh, how I long to find a place to hideaway
 
Repeat (*)

For All We Know


Love, look at the two of us
Strangers in many ways
We've got a lifetime to share
So much to say
And as we go
From day to day
I'll feel you close to me
But time alone will tell
Let's take a lifetime to say
"I knew you well"
For only time will tell us so
And love may grow
For all we know.

Love, look at the two of us
Strangers in many ways
Let's take a lifetime to say
"I knew you well"
For only time will tell us so
And love may grow

For all we know.

Druscilla Penny


Druscilla Penny, what a name!
Are you sure you didnt make it up yourself?
Youre very pretty, yes you are
Buth with all the junk you wear, its hard to tell
 
Man, you must work hard to get your hair to look like that
I dont need a horoscope to tell me where youre at
Your familys probably given up on you
Since you began to follow groups of long-haired rock'n rollers
I can hear your mother crying for her daughter
 
Ah, ah, ah ....
Ah, ah, ah ....
 
Druscilla Penny, what a girl!
Wheres the purpose to the crazy life you lead?
It doenst matter after all
Youre so sure instant love is all you need
 
Ive seen your face at least a thousand times
Youre always standing there behind the stages at the concerts
Waiting for an offer to be with someone after
 
Druscilla Penny, hows your head?
Do you ever wake up lonely in the night?
It isnt easy for a girl when she cant decide
If love is wrong or right
I hope I live to see a change
Could you ever really love?
Ever really care?
Ever really get it together? no no

One Love


One love in my young life
Took me somewhere I had never been
And I want to live again, breathe again
In the shelter of his brightly woven love song
So long I have wanted love to be
Sitting just this near to me
Now my waiting heart is free
 
(*) Few are the choices we are given
The sands of time pass quickly by
One dream of my young life
Now stands holding out his hand to me
Now I cant help but believe that my whole life will be
Spent in one love
 
Repeat (*)
 
Spent in one love
Spent in one love

Bacharach / David Medley


Knowing When To Leave

Go while the going is good
Knowing when to leave may be
The smartest thing anyone can learn, go!
I'm afraid my heart isn't very smart
Fly while your still have your wings
Knowing when to leave never let you reach
The point of no return, fly!
 
Foolish as it seems

I still have my dreams
So I keep hoping, day after day
As I wait for the man I need
Night after night as I wish
For a love that can be
Though I'm sure that no one can tell where their
Wishes and hopes will lead, somehow I feel
There is hapiness waiting for me
 
When someone walks in your life

You just better be sure it's right
'Cause if he's wrong, there's are heartaches and tears you must pay
Keep both of your eyes on the door
Never let it get out of sight
Just be prepared when the time has come
You run away
Sail when the wind starts to blow
Bul like a fool I don't know when to leave

Make It Easy On Yourself

And make it easy on yourself
Make it easy on yourself, easy on yourself
'Cause breaking up si so very hard to do

(There's) Always Something There To Remind Me

If you should find you miss
The sweet and tender love we used to share
Love we used to share
Just go back to the places where we used to go
And I'll be there
Oh, how can I forget you
When there is always something there to remind me
Always something there to remind me
I was born to love you
I will never be free
You'll always be a part of me
When there is always something there to remind me
I'll Never Fall In Love Again
Don't tell me what it's all about
'Cause I've been there and I'm glad I'm out
Out of those chains those chains that bind you
That is why I'm here to remind you
 
What do you get when you fall in love?

You only get lies and pain and sorrow
So, for at least, until tomorrow
I'll never fall in love again
Oh, I'll never fall in love again

Walk On By

If you see me walkin' down the street
And I start to cry each time we meet
Walk on by, walk on by
Make believe you don't see the tears
Just let me grief in private
'Cause each time I see you I break down and cry
Walk on by
I just can't get over losing you
So if I should seem broken and blue
Walk on by, walk on by
Foolish pride that's all that I have left
So let me have the tears and the sadness that you gave me
When you said good-bye
Walk on by, by

Do You Know The Way To San Jose

Do you know the way to San Jose?
I've been away so long
I may go wrong and lose my way
Do you know the way to San Jose?
I'm going back to find some place of mind in San Jose
L.A. is a great big freeway
Put a hundred down a by a car
In a week, maybe two they'll make you a star
Weeks turn into years, how quick they pass
And all the stars there never were
Are parking cars and pumping gas
I've got lots of friends in San Jose
Can't wait to get back to San Jose
Do you know the way to San Jose?

Sometimes


Sometimes not often enough
We reflect upon the good things
And those thoughs always center around those we love
And I think about those people who mean so much to me
And for so many years have made me so very happy
And I count the times I have forgotten to say "thank you"
And just how much I love them
