Lyrics for the songs on The Edgar Winter Group with Rock Derringer

COOL DANCE

Dan Hartman © 1975 Silver Steed Music, Inc.
EDGAR: Well you're cool when you don't know it,
An' when you know it then you ain't
You're cool when you don't know it
An' when you know it, know it, then you ain't
I said get back, I said retrack
Got to give it a chance
Well, all you gotta do, all you gotta do is dance
You're cool when you don't know it
Got to get up an' say yeah
You're cool when you don't know it
Got to get up an' say yeah
DAN: So wake up
I said shake up
It's a new romance
And when you find it, get behind it
Dance
EDGAR: I hope these words are talkin' sense
Cause they come from experience
I was cool when I didn't know it
And when I knew it, then I wasn't so cool

PEOPLE MUSIC


Edgar Winter & Dan Hartman
© 1975 Hierophant Inc. & Silver Steed Music, Inc.
EDGAR & DAN: Don't ever doubt that there's somethin'
Rollin' about in the air
There is a sound
Get you up off the ground
Somethin' to make you aware
Some people won't even try it
Some people ain't gonna buy it
Although it can do what you've wanted it to
If you just let it take you there
CHORUS
People music, people music
You can use it to feel good inside
People music, people music
Can't refuse it, catch your ride
It can be hot and heavy It can be soft and slow Music is just for us people Everybody should know
REPEAT CHORUS
DAN: There's music in everybody
That I know we can find
EDGAR: Just put your soul inside the feeling
Let yourself unwind
DAN: You can choose it
EDGAR & DAN: People music, people music
You can choose it
Can't refuse it
You can choose it, feel good inside

GOOD SHOT


Edgar Winter © 1975 Hierophant Inc.
EDGAR: Don't look around
With your eyes on the ground
Now lift them up to the sky
You'll never know what you can do
Till you give it a try
Now it's not as though
I didn't tell you so
You're the one who ought to know
CHORUS
You got a good shot
That's what you got
You got a good shot
Don't think you're not
Gonna get you a good shot
yea yea yea yea yea
Put no restrictions on what you can do
Till you give it your best
Got to give yourself a chance
As well as the rest
I know you can do
Whatever you believe is true
You just realize it's up to you uh huh
REPEAT CHORUS

NOTHIN' GOOD COMES EASY


Rick Derringer© 1975 Derringer Music, Inc.
CHORUS
RICK: Nothin' good comes easy
Like nothin' black is ever white
Nothin' good comes easy And nothin' bad is ever right
You've got me right where I wanna be
Oh girl, I love you so
An' when you're close, there's a fire in me
I won't ever let you go
We've got to work to keep this thing alive
We've got to work to make it grow
We've got to love each other to survive
And each day I love you more
REPEAT CHORUS
It's been this way since the world began
And it will always be the same
And it don't matter who you are, my friend
You're not gonna make it change
You've got to give it everything that you've got
And I will give it back to you
Cause to me it really means a lot
Every little thing you do
REPEAT CHORUS

INFINITE PEACE IN RHYTHM


Edgar Winter © 1975 Hierophant Inc.
EDGAR: Infinite peace in rhythm
That's what I'd like to see
Infinite peace in rhythm
That's what there ought to be
Infinite peace in rhythm
In perfect harmony
Infinite peace in rhythm
Is there for you and me
Infinite peace in rhythm
Come on and give me some
That's what there is to come
Infinite peace in rhythm
It's time we had begun
Infinite peace in rhythm
Is there for everyone
Infinite peace in rhythm
I believe, I believe Lord
That's what there is to come
Infinite peace in rhythm
Yea come on, yea come on
And give me some

PARADISE


Dan Hartman© 1975 Silver Steed Music, Inc.
DAN: Today is hard to find
And harder yet to hold
It's Paradise
If you love right through
In time it comes to you, yea
So walk in the sun now
Life can be nice
Just live to believe it
And it's Paradise
Ooh, Paradise
Ooh, Paradise
I know of misery Unhappy - endlessly
It's so hard to bear
Reach down into my soul
Pick it up, take control
And then you're there
It's everywhere
And we can spend our days in Paradise
If we love right through
We got to love right through
We got to love right on through
We got to love
Come on now and take my hand
And feel my love
Right on through to Paradise
Ooh, Paradise

SIDES


Dan Hartman© 1975 Silver Steed Music, Inc.
DAN: We resolve that we're here together
In the bad times and the good
But when differences arise around us
We don't forget them like we should
And that's no good
So I'm over here and
You're over there and
The truth between us sometimes hides
When I need you as much as
You need me
Well then, why must we take sides-sides
Many miles of ocean blue
Separate our lives as we grow
And just because we're all different people
There's so much more to know
So much more to know
So I'm over here and
You're over there and
The truth between us sometimes hides
When I need you as much as
You need me
Well then, why must we take sides
When I needed you as much as
You needed me
Well then, why did we take sides

DIAMOND EYES


Edgar Winter & Dan Hartman© 1975 Hierophant Inc. & Silver Steed Music, Inc.
EDGAR: We live so fast, our life goes past
Before we ever know it
When love is strong, it can't be wrong
To find a way to show it
We try to build a dream
DAN: Where things are beautiful, the way they seem
And all of life is like a perfect scene
CHORUS
EDGAR: We are children
Looking at the world through diamond eyes
Just like children
Looking at the world through diamond eyes
We are children
Looking at the world through diamond eyes
The searchin' kind is sure to find a world of magic rainbows
Beneath the sun, is so much fun
Who wonders where the rain goes
Or why we have to cry
DAN: We see through everything as life goes by
And when it finally comes, our time to try
Repeat Chorus

MODERN LOVE


Rick Derringer© 1975 Derringer Music, Inc.
RICK: Janey-Calls up Jimmy
Says "How would you like to take me for a ride?"
Jimmy says, "Shucks, cause my shorts in the shop
And I just spent my very last dime"
Janey-Says "Don't worry
Think I can pick you up at twilight-
My brand new caddy's got a tank full of gas
And you won't need no money tonight"
CHORUS
Modern love
Space-age romance
Everybody movin' to their own dance
Modern love
Space-age romance
Everybody acting like it's their last chance
Jimmy-Fell for Janey
He checked it out from every point of view
He called her up with his very last dime
And his words came a tumblin' on through
He said "Let me-
Last forever
At least I wanna live till I die
I'm gonna love you all night and in the morning again
Cause it's the only thing that gets me so high"
REPEAT CHORUS

LET'S DO IT TOGETHER AGAIN


Edgar Winter & Dan Hartman© 1975 Hierophant Inc. & Silver Steed Music, Inc.
EDGAR: Here's hopin' for everybody
Here's wishin' for everything
If we all pull together
Things have got to get better and better
Here's makin' a dream come true
And lettin' your mind fly high
If we wanna be happy
Now we gotta try and try
Let's do it together again
We can have a good thing goin'
Let's do it together again
I can just feel it growin'
Let's put our good things together
Let's take a step on the way to forever
Here's makin' each other feel
That everything's really real
We been schoolin' to take the test
Maybe someday we'll be the best
Do it again
Rock a rock a rock a rollin'
Let's do it together again
RICK: We can have a good thing goin'
Let's do it together again
CHUCK: I can just feel it growin'
Let's do it together again
DAN: Well, I think we got it rollin'
Let's do it together again
EDGAR: I can just feel it growin'
Let's do it together again

CAN'T TELL ONE FROM THE OTHER


Dan Hartman© 1975 Silver Steed Music, Inc.
DAN: Hey, have you been makin' it with lovers of the road?
Well they got the touch, but it don't mean much
Cause you'll always know the story's end
Before it can be told
Well it's not that I don't mind it
But every time's alike and you
CHORUS
Can't tell one from the other
Can't tell one from the other
Really not my kind of lover
Little girl don't have to stay at home nights anymore
And with just a grin
You're sure to win
And I always seem to ask myself
Just what I do it for
Cause she's already gone away
When night turns into day and she
REPEAT CHORUS
I want a woman to be sincere
One who can make me feel that I'm really here
Cause I need to grow-we'll grow together-close together
Can't tell one from the other Can't tell one from the other Cause she's already gone away When night turns into day and
She can't tell one from the other

J.A.P. (JUST ANOTHER PUNK)


Rick Derringer© 1975 Derringer Music, Inc.
RICK: I was just another punk
Walkin' down the street
But I had this new pair of shades on
That made me feel really neat
I didn't know if anybody else knew
And I didn't really care
Cause in my head I'm the coolest
I'm so sharp they gotta stare
I'm Peter Revson or James Dean
And I always get the chicks
I can be moody and I can be mean
Cause I gotta get my kicks
And I don't care what your dad does
Cause trouble is my middle name
You know I'm always lookin' for that new buzz
But all I ever find is pain
CHORUS
I'm just another punk-just another rebel
I'm just another punk-never outa trouble
Just another punk-climbin' from the rubble
Just another punk-just another
Baby, I got love for you
Now don't say no to me
Cause I can't hold this inside
And my pride just won't set me free
When I get my arms around you
You're gonna know that I'm a man
And when my love is deep inside you
You'll know I do the best I can
REPEAT CHORUS
