Black Denim Trousers
[Words and Music by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller]


He wore black denim trousers and motorcycle boots
And a black leather jacket with an eagle on the back
He had a hopped-up 'cycle that took off like a gun
That fool was the terror of Highway 101

Well, he never washed his face and he never combed his hair
He had axle grease embedded underneath his fingernails
On the muscle of his arm was a red tattoo
A picture of a heart saying "Mother, I love you"

He had a pretty girlfriend by the name of Mary Lou
But he treated her just like he treated all the rest
And everybody pitied her 'cause everybody knew
He loved that doggone motorcycle best

He wore black denim trousers and motorcycle boots
And a black leather jacket with an eagle on the back
He had a hopped-up 'cycle that took off like a gun
That fool was the terror of Highway 101

---- Instrumental Interlude ----

Mary Lou, poor girl, she pleaded and she begged him not to leave
She said "I've got a feeling if you ride tonight I'll grieve"
But her tears were shed in vain and her every word was lost
In the rumble of his engine and the smoke from his exhaust

Then he took off like the Devil and there was fire in his eyes
He said "I'll go a thousand miles before the sun can rise"
But he hit a screamin' diesel that was California-bound
And when they cleared the wreckage, all they found

Was his black denim trousers and motorcycle boots
And a black leather jacket with an eagle on the back
But they couldn't find the 'cycle that took off like a gun
And they never found the terror of Highway 101

Title:Learnin' The Blues
Artist: Frank Sinatra - Contributor:Webmaster

[Words and Music by Delores Silver]


The tables are empty
The dance floor's deserted
You play the same love song
It's the tenth time you've heard it
That's the beginning
Just one of the clues
You've had your first lesson
In learnin' the blues

The cigarettes you light
One after another
Won't help you forget her
And the way that you love her
You're only burnin'
A torch you can't lose
But you're on the right track
For learnin' the blues

When you're at home alone
The blues will taunt you constantly
When you're out in a crowd
The blues will haunt your memory

The nights when you don't sleep
The whole night you're cryin'
But you can't forget her
Soon you even stop tryin'
You'll walk that floor
And wear out your shoes
When you feel your heart break
You're learnin' the blues

When you're at home alone
The blues will taunt you constantly
When you're out in a crowd
Those blues will haunt your memory

The nights when you don't sleep
That whole night you're cryin'
But you can't forget her
Soon you even stop tryin'
You'll walk the floor
And you'll wear out your shoes
When you feel your heart break
You're learnin' those blues
