Para Donde Vas

LATE AT NIGHT (John Magnie, Joe Cabral, Rod Hodges)

Late at night
I'm goofy like a clown
Early in the morning
Baby I try to live it down

Late at night
I do just like I please
Early in the morning
Honey I'm down on my knees

Praying, Lord you got to help me
I'm praying Lord you got to help me

Late at night
I held the truth in my hand
A bright, bright shiny jewel
Early in the morning
I look in the mirror
I see the same old fool

Late at night
I'm singing with my friends
Early in the morning
The fun never ends
Late at night
The neighbors start to call
Early in the morning
They're beatin' down the wall

I said, Lord you got to help me
You got to help me, help me

Late at night
I held the truth in my hand
A bright shiny jewel
Early in the morning
I look in the mirror
I see the same old fool

Late at night
Early in the morning
Late at night
Early in the morning

THIS NIGHT OF SIN (Rod Hodges)

Darlin' let's give in to this night of sin
Heaven holds a place for you and me
Cause if we both give in to this night of sin
Heaven's just the place we're gonna be

Now life is much too short to weep and moan
There ain't no since in goin' home alone
So honey let's give in to this night of sin
It ain't nobody's business but our own

Darlin' let's give in to this night of sin
Heaven holds a place for you and me
Cause if we both give in to this night of sin

On missin' out on kissin' and romance
So honey take my hand, let's rock to the promised land
I just want to be your lovin' man

So darlin' let's give in to this night of sin
Heaven holds a place for you and me

And there's certain words that we've not spoken yet
So spread your wings of love
Like an angel from above
I promise you won't give more than you get, so...

So darlin' let's give in to this night of sin
Heaven holds a place for you and me
Cause if we both give in to this night of sin
Heaven's just the place we're gonna be
Cause if we both give in to this night of sin
Heaven's just the place we're gonna be

NERVOUS (Rod Hodges)

I'm nervous, I'm nervous, nervous honey
What can I do
I'm nervous, you make me nervous baby
I'm so nervous cause I'm in love with you

Big city women don't affect my confidence
Rich girls they don't make me shake
Cause honey I've been around
I know what they're puttin' down
Your the only one that makes me quake

I'm nervous, I'm nervous, nervous honey
What can I do
I'm nervous, you make me nervous baby
I'm so nervous cause I'm in love with you

Thunder and lightning don't make me tremble
Walkin' through the night I ain't no fool
But since when day when we went all the way
I see you on the street and I lose my cool

I'm nervous, I'm nervous, nervous honey
What can I do
I'm nervous, you make me nervous baby
I'm so nervous cause I'm in love with you

[repeat chorus]

Thunder and lightning don't make me tremble
Walkin' through the night I ain't no fool
But since that day that we went all the way
I see you on the street and I lose my cool

Nervous, I'm nervous, nervous honey
What can I do
Nervous, you make me nervous baby
I'm so nervous cause I'm in love with you
Nervous cause I'm in love with you
I'm so nervous cause I'm in love with you

IF I TURNED TO YOU (Rod Hodges)

If I turned to you and you were gone
If I turned to you and you were gone
If I turned and you were gone
I could not carry on, if I turned to you

If I turned to you and you walked away
If I turned to you and you walked away
If you walked away, couldn't make it through this day
If you walked away

If I reached out and you refused my arms
If I reached out and you refused my arms
If you refused my arms, I'd cry all night long
If you refused my arms

[repeat second verse]

[repeat first verse]

POR MI CAMINO (Celso Piña)

Por mi camino
Por mi camino
Por mi camino
Por mi camino

Por la tarde cuando voy camino a casa
Y la luciernaga que alumbra mi camino
Y los zentzontles despiden con su trino
Al sol que alumbra ay mi camino

Al sol que alumbra
Ay mi camino
Al sol que alumbra
Ay mi camino

Y las estrellas vienen brillando
Y yo las miro en el alto cielo
Pensando en ella me consuelo
Ella es la causa de mi desvelo

Ella es la causa
De mi desvelo
Ella es la causa
De mi desvelo

Cuando la luna ya sale palida y bella
Y su reflejo hoy domina el horizonte
Y las estrellas que siempre me acompana
Parecen siempre los ojos de ella

Parecen siempre
Los ojos de ella
Parecen siempre
Los ojos de ella

Asi camino siempre cantando
Las cosas bellas que van passando
Siempre miro que voy pa casa
Por mi camino Por mi camino

Por mi camino
Por mi camino
[repeat]

translation:

POR MI CAMINO (ALONG MY WAY)

Along my way

In the evening as I am walking home
The firefly lights my way
And the song of the zentzontle says goodnight
To the sun that also lights my way

I look at the sky and I see the brilliant stars
Thinking of her, I console myself
But she is the cause of my sleepless nights

The moon rises pale and beautiful
Its reflection covers the horizon
And the stars that always accoompany me
Remind me of her eyes
They remind me of her eyes

So I walk, always singing
The beautiful things I see pass by
Always looking on my way home
Along my way

FORTUNE TELLER (Naomi Neville)

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

I went to a fortune teller
To have my fortune read
I didn't know what to tell her
I had a dizzy feeling in my head

Then she took a look at my palm
She said sonny you feel kind of warm
She looked into her crystal ball
She said you're in love

I said how could that be so
I'm not tight with none of the chicks I know
She said before the next sunrise
You'll be looking into her eyes, and I said...

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

I left there in a hurry
Lookin' forward to my big surprise
The next day I discovered
That the fortune teller told me a lie

I hurried back down to that woman
Mad as I could be
I told her I didn't see nobody
Why she made a fool of me

Then something struck me
As if it came from up above
While looking at the fortune teller
I fell in love

Now I'm a happy fella
I'm married to the fortune teller
We're happy as we can be
Now I get my fortune told for free

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
[repeat]

YOU MAKE IT HARD (Rod Hodges)

You make it hard, you make it hard on me
You make it hard, you make it hard on me
Well I told myself I don't need the complications
Then I kissed your lips and what a sweet sensation
You make it hard, you make it hard on me

You make it hard, you make it hard on me
You make it hard, you're making it so hard on me
Well I try to live my life footloose and free
Then I touch your lips and baby oo-wee
You make it hard, you make it hard on me

I was the king of huggin' and kissin'
'Til you showed me what I'd been missing yeah

You make it hard, you make it hard on me
You're making it hard, you're making it so hard on me
Well I told myself I don't need the complications
Then I kissed your lips and what a sweet sensation
You make it hard, you make it hard on me

You make it hard, you make it hard on me
You make it hard, you're makin' it so hard on me
Yes you do you make it hard, you make it hard on me
Yes you do you make it hard, you're makin' it, you're makin' it hard on me

Say take my advice
Treat your sweetheart nice
Say take my advice
Treat your sweetheart nice
You treat your sweety mean
She'll be the gone-est gal you ever seen

DARK AND DANGEROUS LOVE (J. René Coman)

Enter soft my sweet
Whisper in my ear
Silently so you and I alone can hear
Closer now, baby a little closer still
I feel my heart in the grip of
A dark and dangerous love

You tempt my will
You try to steal my faith
To satisfy a hunger that true love cannot replace
I surrender now
Baby, I'm guilty of knowing right from the start
The grip of a dark and dangerous love

I'm waiting still for your return
You move through the night
Your eyes ignite my soul, it burns
I try to sleep once more
But my craving lives
A flickering spark in the grip of
A dark and dangerous love

TAKE YOUR PICTURES, YOUR LETTERS AND YOUR RING (Rod Hodges)

When I'm sitting home at night hoping you will call
It will hurt to see your picture hanging on the wall
If there is no trace, if I forget you like a dream
I won't have to think about the way things used to be

Take your picture, your letters and your ring
They only make me blue
I don't want to sit and stare at your memories
So take your picture, your letters and your ring

Si te llevas tus cositas y te fueras de mi vida
Mas facil olvidarte y consolar el alma mia
If you've made your mind up you really have to go
There's one thing I ask before you walk out that door

Take your picture, your letters and your ring
They only make me blue
I don't want to sit and stare at your memories
So take your picture, your letters and your ring

NO TE OLVIDARE (Rod Hodges)

No te olvides vida mía
Que siempre te cantaré
Este cancion que dice
Nunca te olvidaré

Han pasado muchos años
He recorrido este mundo
Y no se borra de mi alma
Este amor tan profundo
Y si acaso el destino
Un dia me lleve a tu lado
Nomas te pido una cosa
Que mi escuches este canto

No te olvides vida mía
Que siempre te cantaré
Este cancion que dice
Nunca te olvidaré

Ay, amores y dinero
He ganado y perdido
Pero de amor verdadero
Nunca me olvido
Los caminos son mi casa
Los extraños mis amigos
Y no importa lo que pasa
Tu amor es mi abrigo

No te olvides vida mía
Que siempre te cantaré
Este cancion que dice
Nunca te olvidaré
Este cancion que dice
Nunca te olvidaré

translation:

NO TE OLVIDARE (I'LL NEVER FORGET YOU)

Don't forget, my love
That I will always sing this song
That says I will never forget you

Many years have passed
I've been around the world
But this deep love will never disappear
If by chance destiny, someday take me to your side
I only ask that you listen to my song

Don't forget, my love
That I will always sing this song
That says I will never forget you

Love and money
I have won and I have lost
But real love is not forgotten
The road is my home
Strangers are my friends
And no matter what happens
Your love keeps me warm

Don't forget, my love
That I will always sing this song
That says I will never forget you
