(n.c)
 Aaah...

E  A7 (x6)

Verse 1:

E                                A7
 Did I hear you say you love me?
          E                 A7
Well baby I've got to know.
     E                               A7
'Cos if you really, feel you love me,
              E                 A7
You've got to do things to show.

E                                   A7
 Don't give me the wrong impression,
E                      A7
 By showing me warm ex-pressions.
E                              A7
 Put me in the right direction,
E                        A7
 With tender love and af-fection.

Chorus 1:

A7                         D7
 I've been standing on the outside,
G7         A7  Bb7    B7
 Trying to get on the inside.

Verse 2:

E                                A7
 Did I hear you say you need me?
          E                 A7
Well baby tell me the truth.
     E                               A7
'Cos if you really, feel you need me,
              E                    A7
My sweetness, here's what I'll do;

E                             A7
 Cut out all my crazy playing,
     E                         A7
'Cos for your love I have been laying.
     E                                  A7
Just tell me that is what you're saying,
    E                               A7
And I'll be yours without delaying.
                   A7
Without de-laying.

Chorus 2:

A7                         D7
 I've been standing on the outside,
G7         A7  Bb7    B7
 Trying to get on the inside.

Now please don't give me no mess.
     E                             A7
'Cos if you really, really want me,
              E                 A7
You've got to give me your best.

E                                     A7
 Put my love life right in the pocket,
    E                             A7 
And dare someone to try to top it.
    E                                A7
And when you think I want to drop it;
E                                       A7
 Just love me 'till I beg don't stop it.

You could hear,
E                          D    E
 The pitter patter of feet cree-ping.

Of feet cree-ping.

8...CASH IN YOUR FACE... by Stevie Wonder
------------------------.................

*from 'Hotter Than July' (1980)*


Intro:

D9  G (x8)

Verse 1:

(D9                 G)
 You just could not know,
    D9             G
How long we tried,
D9               G
 To see how this building,
D9            G
 Looks inside.

D9         G          D9         G
 This must be a lucky day for me,
D9           G
 Because the sign says,
          D9       G
There's a vacancy.

Bridge 1:

       G
Look I know you came a long way,
F        E7
 But you made it just too late;
      G                      G/A  D
So we had to give it to some-body else.

       G
Well I talked to you on the phone,
F          E7
 Less than fifteen minutes ago;
        F7           G7     A7
And you told me that it was cool.

Verse 2:

                 D9        G
I graduated from Harvard U.
D9         G           D9        G
 My job is paying good money too.
D9          G           D9      G
 And if you check on my resume;
D9           G
 You'll find they all,
       D9          G
Wanted me to stay.

Bridge 2:

       G
Well I can't take the time out,
F   E7
 To check your credit card,
             G
'Cos the com-puter,
           G/A     D
Just broke down to-day.

          G
Well I'll stop by here tomorrow,
F       E7
 To com-plete our interview,
      F7               G7    A7
But I know what you're gonna say.
(I know what your bottomline is);

Chorus 1:

    D9             G
You might have the cash,
    G          D9           G
But you cannot cash in your face;
                  D9             G, D9  G
We don't want you living in here.

        D9             G
Say you might have the cash,
    G          D9           G
But you cannot cash in your face;
                  D9             G, D9  G
We don't want you living in here.

Break:

G7
 Too-oo, too-oo...
G/A  D7   G  D9
 Too bad.

G7
 Too-oo, too-oo..
G/A  D7   G
 Too sad.

Interlude:

D9  G, D9  G (x2)

Verse 3:

(G)
 Our first child,
            D9       G
Is due here any day;
         D9      G
Due here any day,
D9                G 
 That's why we're desperate,
       D9      G
For a place to stay.

D9      G
 The lo-cation is,
    D9          G
So perfect too,
D9         G
 So please try to do,
     D9         G
What you can do.

Bridge 3:

     G
Well in this apartment complex,
F   E7
 No children are allowed;
           G
And if you told me that,
                         G/A    D
I could have saved you a-lot of time.

       G
Well I thought the Bill was passed,
          F   E7
That said you could not discriminate?
      F7           G7          A7
But I know some ex-cuse you'll find.
(Because your bottom line is);

Chorus 2:

    D9             G
You might have the cash,
    G          D9           G
But you cannot cash in your face;
                  D9             G, D9  G
We don't want you living in here.

        D9             G
Say you might have the cash,
    G          D9           G
But you cannot cash in your face;
                  D9             G, D9  G
We don't want you living in here.

Coda:

         D9               G      D9  G
Aye, you might be a great doctor,
    D9               G       D9  G
You might be a great lawyer.
    D9                G          D9   G
You might possess the key to the city,
   D9           G      D9  G
Or maybe a poli-tician.

    D9             G
You might have the cash,
    G          D9           G
But you cannot cash in your face;
                  D9             G, D9  G
We don't want you living in here.

        D9             G
Say you might have the cash,
    G          D9           G
But you cannot cash in your face;
                  D9             G, D9  G
We don't want you living in here.

Intro:

c  Am  Fmaj7, Dm  G7

Verse 1:

c                                 Am
 Lately, I have had the strangest feeling,
Dm7                           G7
 With no vivid reason here to find.
Dm                  Dm/maj
 Yet the thought of losing you's,
     Dm7       G7       c    G  c, G  c
Been hanging, 'round my mind.

Verse 2:

c                                   Am
 Far more frequently you're wearing perfume,
Dm7                               G7
 With you say no special place to go.
    Dm
But when I ask;
     Dm/maj               Dm7
Will you be coming coming back soon?
G7         Cmaj7       C9
 You don't know, never know.

Chorus 1:

      Fmaj7
Well, I'm a man of many wishes,
  Fm6
I hope my premonition misses;
    Em7
But what I really feel,
   Em7/A
My eyes won't let me hide;

Dm7   Em    Dm7 Em   Fm6   G7 c   Em7  Em7/A
 'Cos they, al -ways start to cry.

Dm7   Em   Dm7  Em    Fm   G7   c
 'Cos this time could mean good-bye.

Interlude:

c  Am7, Dm7  G7

Verse 3:

c                                Am
 Lately I've been staring in the mirror;
Dm7                        G7
 Very slowly, picking me a-part.
Dm                 Dm/maj
 Trying to tell my-self,
          Dm7     G7        c     G  c, G  c
I have no reason, with your heart.

Verse 4:

c
 Just the other night,
               Am
While you were sleeping;
Dm7
 I vaguely heard you,
                  G7
Whisper someone's name.
    Dm
But when I ask you,
Dm/maj                  Dm7
 Of the thoughts you're keeping;
G7        Cmaj7          C9
 You just say; nothing's changed.

Chorus 2:

      Fmaj7
Well, I'm a man of many wishes,
  Fm6
I hope my premonition misses;
    Em7
But what I really feel,
   Em7/A
My eyes won't let me hide;

Dm7   Em    Dm7 Em   Fm6   G7 c   Em7  Em7/A
 'Cos they, al -ways start to cry.

Dm7   Em   Dm7  Em    Fm   Gm   Abmaj7
 'Cos this time could mean good-bye.

 Good-bye.

10...HAPPY BIRTHDAY... by Stevie Wonder
----------------------.................

*from 'Hotter Than July' (1980)*


Intro:

c  F/C, c
Bb  Eb, Bb
Am  Em  Am,
G  F/G

(x2)

Verse 1:

            c                       F/C, c
You know it doesn't make much sense,
               Bb                Eb, Bb
There ought to be a law against;
    Am                    Em  Am
Any-one who takes offense,
   G         F/G
At a, day in your celebration.

        c                     F/C, c
'Cos we all know in our minds,
           Bb                 Eb, Bb
That there ought to be a time,
     Am                Em, Am
That we can set aside;
   G             F/G
To show just how much we love you.

Bridge 1:

        F
And I'm sure you would agree,
           G
What could fit more perfectly,
        F
Than to have a world party,
       F/G
On the day you came to be.

Chorus 1:

      c               F/C, c
Happy birthday to you,
                      F/C, c
Happy birthday to you,
      F     c
Happy birth-day.

      c               F/C, c
Happy birthday to you,
                      F/C, c
Happy birthday to you,
      F     c
Happy birth-day.

Verse 2:

       c                F/C, c
I just never understood,
      Bb                     Eb, Bb
How a man who died for good,
          Am                    Em, Am
Could not have a day that would,
   G                 F/G
Be set aside for his recognition.

        c                   F/C, c
Because it should never be,
        Bb                    Eb, Bb
Just be-cause some cannot see,
    Am                   Em, Am
The dream as clear as he.
     G
That they should make it,
   F/G
Be-come an illusion.

Bridge 2:

       F
And we all know everything,
        G
That he stood for, time will bring.
       F
For in peace our hearts will sing;
          F/G
Thanks to Martin Luther King.

Chorus 2:

      c               F/C, c
Happy birthday to you,
                       F/C, c
Happy birthday to you,
      F     c
Happy birth-day.

      c               F/C, c
Happy birthday to you,
                      F/C, c
Happy birthday to you,
      F     c
Happy birth-day.

Middle 8:

Dm7                         Am7
 Why has there never been a holiday,
Dm7
 Where peace is celebrated,
G#           A#         c
 All through-out the wo-rld?

Verse 3:

    c               F/C, c
The time is overdue,
        Bb                   Eb, Bb
For pe-ople like me and you,
    Am                     Em, Am
Who know the way to truth;
   G                 F/G
Is love and unity to all God's children.

          c                F/C, c
It should be a great event,
        Bb                        Eb, Bb
And the whole day should be spent,
   Am               Em, Am
In full remembrance,
   G
Of those who lived and died,
        F/G
For the oneness of all people.

Bridge 3:

   F
So let us all begin,
   G
We know that love can win.
       F
Let it out; don't hold it in,
        F/G         F#/G#
Sing it loud as you can...
