I Go Crazy
James Brown

Oh you know, feel all right [Oh yeah]
You know, feel all right, children [Oh yeah]
You know, I feel all right [Oh yeah]
Oh yeah, you're hanging me up, baby
Baby!

If you leave me, I'll go crazy
If you leave me, baby, should I go crazy?
'Cause I love ya
I love ya
Oh, I love you too much

If you hurt me, I'll go crazy
If you're ever going to hurt me, babe, I'll go crazy
'Cause I love ya
I love ya
Oh, I love you too much

You've got to live 
For yourself
Yourself and nobody else
You've got to live 
For yourself
Yourself and nobody else

Oh baby, I'll go crazy
If you ever leave me, baby, I'll go crazy
'Cause I love ya
I love ya
Oh, I love you too much

You've got to live 
For yourself
Yourself and nobody else
You've got to live 
For yourself
Yourself and nobody else

Talk about me, (take me) by the hand
If you hurt me baby, you know that I'll go crazy
'Cause I love ya
I love ya
Oh, I love you much more than I can say


This single was released in Holland in 1965, backed with "Let Me Go"

And My Baby's Gone
Mike Pinder and Denny Laine

Without a love anymore
I'm like a rich man growing poor
All my treasures are stone
Yeah, all my treasures are stone
And my baby, my baby, my baby
My baby is gone

Without your heart anymore
I'm like a room without doors
When I walk in, I fall
When I walk in, I fall
And my baby, my baby, my baby
My baby is gone

Go Now
Larry Banks and Milton Bennett
We've already said...
"Goodbye"
Since you gotta go
Oh, you had better go now
Go now, go now, go now
Before you see me cry

I want you to tell me 
Just what you intend to do now
'Cause how many times
Do I have to tell you, darlin', darlin'
I'm still in love with you now

We've already said...
"So long"
I don't want to see you go
Oh, you had better go now
Go now, go now, go now
Don't you even try 
Telling me that you really don't want me to end this way
'Cause darlin, darlin'
Can't you see I want you to stay?

Since you gotta go
Oh you had better go now
Go now, go now, go now
Before you see me cry
I want you to tell me
Just what you intend to do now
'Cause how many times 
Do I have to tell you, darlin', darlin'
I'm still in love, still in love with you now
I don't want to see you go
But darlin'
You better go now


This single was the breakout hit for the Moody Blues and made them a top-40 name. Italian picture sleeve shown.

Can't Nobody Love You
Mitchell

Can't nobody love you, baby
Like I'm loving you right now
Cause they don't know how to love you
Like I do

And can't nobody talk to you, baby
Like I'm talking to you right now
They just don't know how to talk to you 
Like I said I do

I'm gonna love you in the morning
I'm gonna love you through the night
And I'm won't stop loving you baby

Now some guys make eyes at you
But they don't do it all the time, I know
I'd never do it baby
But you know, you know what's on my mind

Can't nobody love you
Like I'm loving you right now
'Cause they don't know how to love you 
Like I do [speak to me]

I'm gonna love you in the morning, baby
And I'm gonna love you through the night

Oh, yeah

I've Got A Dream
Barry, Greenwich

I've gotta dream
Every night I said to my self 
Yeah, I gotta share it
Share it with somebody else

We can make a beautiful team
Oh baby, it's a beautiful dream
But what am I gonna do with it, baby?
So what am I gonna do with it, baby?
What am I gonna do with it, baby?
Well, if I can't share with you?

I got some love
And baby it's the kind that will do
Yeah, I've gotta kiss
I gave to somebody like you

The moon is shining up above
But I've got a heart full of love
What am I gonna do with it, baby?
So what am I gonna do with it, baby?
What am I gonna do with it, baby?
Well, if I can't give it to you?

I can't throw it in the river
I can't toss it in the sea
I can't put it in a paper bag
So baby come and get from me

I've gotta dream
And every night I said to myself
Yeah, I gotta share it
Share it with somebody else
We can make a beautiful team
Well, baby it's a beautiful dream
Well, if I can't share it with you?
So what am I gonna do with it, baby?
Well, if I can't share it with you?
Well, if I can't share it
Well, if I can't share it
Well, if I can't share it with you?

Let Me Go
Mike Pinder and Denny Laine

When I telephone you
Don't make out that you're not home
It wouldn't hurt at all
To answer the call
When I hold you near
When I call you, dear
You never seem
To want to know me at all
Oh, baby
Let me go
If I stay around 
Then you're gonna see my heart break
I can't stand all this heartache
'Cause I love you so
I find it hard to go
For I can see a change in your ways
'Cause when I'm telling you 
How much I think of you
You always look away in a gaze

Oh, baby
Let me go
If I stay around 
Then you're gonna see my heart break
I can't stand all this heartache
Have you lost every little bit of love
You had for me, baby?
Are you gonna let me go?
Go on and go on this way
When I telephone you
Don't make out you're not at home
It wouldn't hurt at all
To answer the call
When I hold you near
When I call you, dear
You never seem
To want to know me at all

Oh, baby
Let me go
If I stay around 
Then you're gonna see my heart break
I can't stand all this heartache
You're gonna let me go, baby
Oh, gonna let me go, baby
Oh yea

I Don't Want To Go On Without You
Bert Burns and Jerry Wexler

I don't want to 
Go on without you
It's so bad to be alone
Whoa, baby come home

I need you, yes I do now
I will be so blue
I couldn't see your face
your face
oh...it's in this place

Here in the gloom
Of my lonely room
I hold her handkerchief 
And smell her sweet perfume

I can't stand it
Leave home without you
O my Darlin' hear my plea
Come on back to me

Here in the gloom
In my lonely room
I hold her handkerchief 
And smell her sweet perfume

I can't stand it
Leave home without you
Oh my darlin, hear my plea
Come on back to me
I can't stand it
I can't stand it
Leave home without you

Don't you go now
Don't you go now
Don't you go now

I will be so blue
I don't want to go on without you

True Story
Denny Laine and Mike Pinder

"Now listen to me people
I want to tell you something"
Every single day
I go on my way

And I don't worry
About my baby
Worry about my girl
Found me another one
Love for her is gone

And I don't worry
About my baby
Worry about my girl
If she had to do the things she done
She might have used more tact!
I can't be responsible
For all the love she lacked
That's pretty, too
I'm telling you
Hey! Hey!

It Ain't Necessarily So
George Gershwin, Ira Gershwin and DuBose Heyward

Ain't necessarily so
Ain't necessarily so
Makes you liable 
To read in a Bible
Ain't necessarily so

Little David, he was small all right
Yet David now he was small, all right
Taste good Like a lion
Lay down and he dying
He was small, all right

Little Moses he was found in a stream
Yeah Moses, now he was found in the stream
When that Pharohs' sweet daughter
She came by and and sat by in the water
Fished him, she said, from a stream

Jonah now he lived in a whale
Yeah, Jonah he lived in a whale
Yet he made his own way
And fishes had no way
Jonah he lived in a whale

I said ain't necessarily so
Ain't necessarily so
The things you're liable
To read in the Bible
Ain't necessarily so
Ain't necessarily so

No it ain't necessarily so

Bye Bye Burd*
Dixon and Williamson

I say bye bye bird
I say bye bye bird
I say bye bye baby
I say bye bye 
Bye bye baby
Bye bye

I say bye bye birdy
I say bye bye birdy
Bye bye baby
Bye bye burdy

If you ever want to say goodbye to your girl?
Well, I'll give you one or two little tips
Say bye bye baby
Then you say bye bye bird
Then you say get your suitcase, honey
I don't want to see ya or hear a word

Say bye bye
Say bye bye
Bye bye baby
Bye bye birdy

Now if you ever want to say goodbye to your girl
I'll give you one or two little tips
Say bye bye birdy
Then you say bye bye baby
Bye bye girl, mmmmm, not another word

Bye 
Say bye
Say bye bye
Say bye bye
Bye bye baby
Miss me now

Bye bye birdy
Bye bye baby

Bye bye baby
Bye bye

From The Bottom Of My Heart
Mike Pinder and Denny Laine

I can't be with you anymore
In love with you
You gotta realise, baby
There ain't nowhere
I can find love anymore
That I can criticize 
From the bottom of my heart
I really love you
Yes, I do now
It didn't take too long
To be sure
From the bottom of my heart
I really do

Things you do I admire
And I'm in love with you
You gotta realise, baby
Everyday our love grows
Higher and higher
I find no fault in you
I can criticize 
From the bottom of my heart
I really love you
Yes, I do now
It didn't take too long to be sure
From the bottom of my heart
I really do

Now don't you ever go away
Without you
I just don't know
Where to start
I'm asking you to stay
And, baby, you know I've said it
From the bottom of my heart

It's so good
That I know
And I'm in love with you
All you gotta realise baby
As day by day
Our love will grow
I find no fault in you
I can criticize 
From the bottom of my heart
I really love you
Yes, I do now
It didn't take too long
To be sure
From the bottom of my heart
I really do
Oh, I really do love you
I really do love you, babe
