Liverpool Town Life was simple then, back in the old days Seems like another world, and so long ago I’d skip down Corinthian Avenue, & then along Doric Road Past the Gordon Keeble, I made my way from school To my humble abode Upwardly mobile In my ‘hand me downs’ When I was a boy, in Liverpool Town Then off to High school, in over my head Though I’d fall in love every day It was Radio Caroline, I took to bed The Dansette played ‘Love Me Do’ & ‘The Tears of a Clown’ When I was a boy, in Liverpool Town Though I’m many miles away The Mersey still wends it’s way From Widnes to Wallasey As I remember me When I was a boy, in Liverpool Town © 2009 Steve Jones –aesthetic music

Things Gotta Change Kids dyin on the TV Seems like, everybody’s gotta gun Whatever happened to living and laughing and lovin and having fun Things gotta change Things gotta change They just can’t stay the same This killin, it’s insane Things gotta change Ain’t it strange unemployment is rising Just when they need more soldiers on the line Costello told you this years ago, You boys from the Mersey and the Tyne Things gotta change Things gotta change They just can’t stay the same Oliver’s army found someone to blame Things gotta change Bobby Dylan your country needs you You said the answer was blowin in the wind The New York Times they are a changing This is the cross we bear for our sins Things gotta change Things gotta change They just can’t stay the same With God on our side, we can’t be to blame Things gotta change We got genocide in Zimbabwe Bob Geldof where are you now I guess war just doesn’t sell records But lets phone Harvey Goldsmith anyhow Things gotta change Things gotta change They just can’t stay the same So lets fill Wembley once again Things gotta change So what’s the answer I hear you say Well I swear I do not know The Beatles said All You Need Is Love And that seems like a way to go Things gotta change Things gotta change They just can’t stay the same Let’s give peace a chance once again Things gotta change © 2009 Steve Jones –aesthetic music

Johnny Boy 05:00
Johnny Boy Born a cold November morning Bright red hair, a true Liverpool boy Under an Orleans Road lamplight Shone our mothers pride and joy Now years have gone by and I do my best to try and Remember how it used to be Those were the days my friend, I wish they’d never ended So, come’n have a drink on me, Here’s to ….. Old Johnny boy, Oh Johnny boy Raise your glasses high Raise them to the sky Oh Johnny boy, Oh Johnny boy Here’s to my brother, my best friend I can see you now, rollin a cigarette, Planning the revolution ‘The Crack’ was the place to be Among the drunken disillusioned Taken away, by the angels that day Proving ‘only the good die young’ Taken away on the eve of your birthday It’s over the fat lady’s sung (Come back Johnny, come on, come back Johnny, come on come back Johnny boy)

Experience 03:52
Experience So what’s new, everybody makes mistakes It’s not the end of the world, it’s just another heartbreak Oh I know it’s an understatement, to call what you’ve got the blues But take it from me, what’ya got to do is… Just put it down, to experience What will be, will be Just put it down, to experience Believe in yourself, be free She’s not the first, she won’t be the last You’ve got a broken heart, but your learning fast And the things that you needed to know, they didn’t teach you at school Like how to get through a sleepless night, when you’ve just been somebody’s fool Just put it down, to experience What will be, will be Just put it down, to experience Believe in yourself, be free Solo: Just put it down etc………………… © 2008 Steve Jones –aesthetic music

Forever In Our Hearts You left this world Heaven hurled We never even said goodbye Never even knowing why Now there’s an empty space In an empty place But (its) full of our love for you Yes, full of our love for you Forever in out Hearts And ever in our minds You’ll always be there Till the end of time Always my love I’ll always try love To be true True to you One day we’ll be together again Till then, one day at a time Till then, I’m doin fine Forever in out Hearts And ever in our minds You’ll always be there Till the end of time Always my love I’ll always try love To be true True to you © 2007 Steve Jones –aesthetic music
