--------------------------------------.................

*from 'Hotter than July' (1980)*


Intro:

(n.C)
 Aah...

E  A7 (x6)

Verse 1:

E                                A7
 Did I hear you say you love me?
           E                A7
Well baby, I've got to know.
     E                              A7
'Cos if you really feel you love me,
              E                 A7
You've got to do things to show.

E                                   A7
 Don't give me the wrong impression,
E                      A7
 By showing me warm ex-pressions.
E                              A7
 Put me in the right direction,
E                        A7
 With tender love and af-fection.

Chorus 1:

A7                         D7
 I've been standing on the outside,
G7         A7  Bb7    B7
 Trying to get on the inside.

Verse 2:

E                                A7
 Did I hear you say you need me?
           E                 A7
Well baby, tell me the truth.
     E                              A7
'Cos if you really feel you need me,
              E                    A7
My sweetness, here's what I'll do;

E                             A7
 Cut out all my crazy playing,
     E                         A7
'Cos for your love I have been laying.
     E                                  A7
Just tell me that is what you're saying,
    E                              A7
And I'll be yours without delaying.

Chorus 2:

A7                         D7
 I've been standing on the outside,
G7         A7  Bb7    B7
 Trying to get on the inside.

Bridge 1:

            E                               A7           E    A7
'Cos if you love me, honey, let me hear you say; (I love you).
       E                               A7           E    A7
If you love me, honey, let me hear you say; (I love you).
             E                               A7           E (n.C)
Well, if you love me, honey, let me hear you say; (I love you).

Interlude:

E  A7 (x2)

Verse 3:

E                                A7
 Did I hear you say you want me?
                 E               A7
Now please don't give me no mess.
     E                             A7
'Cos if you really, really want me,
              E                 A7
You've got to give me your best.

E                                     A7
 Put my love life right in the pocket,
    E                             A7
And dare someone to try to top it.
    E                                A7
And when you think I want to drop it;
E                                       A7
 Just love me 'till I beg don't stop it.

Chorus 3:

A7                         D7
 I've been standing on the outside,
G7         A7  Bb7    B7
 Trying to get on the inside.

Bridge 2:

             E                               A7           E    A7
Girl, if you love me, honey, let me hear you say; (I love you).
             E                               A7           E    A7
Well, if you love me, honey, let me hear you say; (I love you).

If you should dis-cover you feel like me.

 If I can-not have you for my own;

8...CASH IN YOUR FACE... by Stevie Wonder
------------------------.................

*from 'Hotter than July' (1980)*


Intro:

D9  G (x8)

Verse 1:

(D9                 G)       D9            G
 You just could not know how long we tried,
D9               G              D9     G
 To see how this building looks inside.
D9         G          D9         G
 This must be a lucky day for me,
D9           G                   D9      G
 Because the sign says there's a vacancy.

Bridge 1:

        G                         F       E7
Look, I know you came a long way, but you made it just too late;
      G                      G/A  D
So we had to give it to some-body else.
        G                           F         E7
Well, I talked to you on the phone, less than fifteen minutes ago;
        F7           G7     A7
And you told me that it was cool.

Verse 2:

                 D9        G
I graduated from Harvard U.
D9         G           D9        G
 My job is paying good money too.
D9          G           D9     G
 And if you check on my resume;
D9           G               D9         G
 You'll find they all wanted me to stay.

Bridge 2:

        G                        F  E7
Well, I can't take the time out, to check your credit card,
             G                G/A     D
'Cos the com-puter just broke down to-day.
           G                      F      E7
Well, I'll stop by here tomorrow, to com-plete our interview,
      F7               G7    A7
But I know what you're gonna say. I know what your bottom line is;

Chorus 1:

    D9             G                    D9           G
You might have the cash, but you cannot cash in your face;
                  D9             G, D9  G
We don't want you living in here.
    D9             G                    D9           G
You might have the cash, but you cannot cash in your face;
                  D9             G, D9  G
We don't want you living in here.

Break:

G7                 G/A  D7  G  D9
 Too-oo, too-oo... too  bad.
G7                G/A D7   G
 Too-oo, too-oo.. too sad.

Interlude:

D9  G, D9  G (x2)

Verse 3:

                            D9      G
Our first child is due here any day;
D9                G               D9            G
 That's why we're desperate for a place to stay.
D9      G            D9           G
 The lo-cation is so perfect, too,
D9         G              D9         G
 So please try to do what you can do.

Bridge 3:

      G                          F  E7
Well, in this apartment complex, no children are allowed;
           G                                      G/A    D
And if you told me that, I could have saved you a-lot of time.

        G                                      F   E7
Well, I thought the Bill was passed, that said you could not discriminate?
      F7           G7          A7
But I know some ex-cuse you'll find. Because your bottom line is;

Chorus 2:

    D9             G                    D9           G
You might have the cash, but you cannot cash in your face;
                  D9             G, D9  G
We don't want you living in here.
         D9             G                    D9           G
Say, you might have the cash, but you cannot cash in your face;
                  D9             G, D9  G
We don't want you living in here.

Coda:

         D9               G      D9  G
Aye, you might be a great doctor,
    D9               G      D9  G
You might be a great lawyer.
    D9                G          D9   G
You might possess the key to the city,
   D9           G      D9  G
Or maybe a poli-tician.

    D9             G
You might have the cash,
    G          D9           G
But you cannot cash in your face;
                  D9             G, D9  G
We don't want you living in here.

         D9             G
Say; you might have the cash,
    G          D9           G
But you cannot cash in your face;
                  D9             G, D9  G
We don't want you living in here.

*from 'Hotter than July' (1980)*


*CAPO 1st FRET*

(Original Key: C#)


Intro:

C  Am  Fmaj7, Dm  G7

Verse 1:

C                                 Am
 Lately, I have had the strangest feeling,
Dm7                           G7
 With no vivid reason here to find.
Dm                  Dm/maj
 Yet the thought of losing you's,
     Dm7       G7       C    G  C, G  C
Been hanging, 'round my mind.

Verse 2:

C                                   Am
 Far more frequently you're wearing perfume,
Dm7                               G7
 With you say no special place to go.
    Dm               Dm/maj               Dm7
But when I ask; will you be coming coming back soon?
G7         Cmaj7       C9
 You don't know, never know.

Chorus 1:

      Fmaj7
Well, I'm a man of many wishes,
  Fm6
I hope my premonition misses;
    Em7                    Em7/A
But what I really feel, my eyes won't let me hide;

Dm7   Em    Dm7 Em   Fm6   G7 C   Em7  Em7/A
 'Cos they, al -ways start to cry.
Dm7   Em   Dm7  Em    Fm   G7   C
 'Cos this time could mean good-bye.

Interlude:

C  Am7, Dm7  G7

Verse 3:

C                                Am
 Lately I've been staring in the mirror;
Dm7                        G7
 Very slowly, picking me a-part.
Dm                 Dm/maj
 Trying to tell my-self,
          Dm7     G7        C     G  C, G  C
I have no reason, with your heart.

Verse 4:

C                                    Am
 Just the other night while you were sleeping,
Dm7                                    G7
 I vaguely heard you whisper someone's name.
    Dm             Dm/maj                 Dm7
But when I ask you of the thoughts you're keeping,
G7        Cmaj7          C9
 You just say; nothing's changed.

Chorus 2:

      Fmaj7
Well, I'm a man of many wishes,
  Fm6
I hope my premonition misses;
    Em7                    Em7/A
But what I really feel, my eyes won't let me hide;

Dm7   Em    Dm7 Em   Fm6   G7 C   Em7  Em7/A
 'Cos they, al -ways start to cry.
Dm7   Em   Dm7  Em    Fm   Gm   Abmaj7
 'Cos this time could mean good-bye.

 Good-bye.

----------------------.................

*from 'Hotter than July' (1980)*


Intro:

C  F/C, C, A#  D#, A#, Am  Em  Am, G  F/G (x2)

Verse 1:

            C                       F/C, C
You know it doesn't make much sense,
               A#               D#, A#
There ought to be a law against;
    Am                    Em  Am
Any-one who takes offense,
   G         F/G
At a, day in your celebration.

        C                     F/C, C
'Cos we all know in our minds,
           A#                 D#, A#
That there ought to be a time,
     Am               Em, Am
That we can set aside;
   G             F/G
To show just how much we love you.

Bridge 1:

        F                                G
And I'm sure you would agree; what could fit more perfectly,
        F                          F/G
Than to have a world party, on the day you came to be?

Chorus 1:

      C               F/C, C
Happy birthday to you,
                      F/C, C
Happy birthday to you,
      F     C
Happy birth-day.

      C               F/C, C
Happy birthday to you,
                      F/C, C
Happy birthday to you,
      F     C
Happy birth-day.

Verse 2:

       C                F/C, C
I just never understood,
      A#                    D#, A#
How a man who died for good,
          Am                    Em, Am
Could not have a day that would,
   G                 F/G
Be set aside for his recognition.

        C                  F/C, C
Because it should never be,
        A#                    D#, A#
Just be-cause some cannot see,
    Am                   Em, Am
The dream as clear as he.
     G                       F/G
That they, should make it be-come an illusion.

Bridge 2:

       F                            G
And we all know everything, that he stood for, time will bring.
       F                                     F/G
For in peace our hearts will sing; thanks to Martin Luther King.

Chorus 2:

      C               F/C, C
Happy birthday to you,
                      F/C, C
Happy birthday to you,
      F     C
Happy birth-day.

Happy birthday to you,
      F     C
Happy birth-day.

Dm7                         Am7
 Why has there never been a holiday,
Dm7                         G#          A#         C
 Where peace is celebrated, all through-out the wo-rld?

Verse 3:

    C               F/C, C
The time is overdue,
        A#                  D#, A#
For peo-ple like me and you,
    Am                     Em, Am
Who know the way to truth;
   G                 F/G
Is love and unity to all God's children.

          C                F/C, C
It should be a great event,
        A#                        D#, A#
And the whole day should be spent,
   Am               Em, Am
In full remembrance,
   G                                 F/G
Of those who lived and died, for the oneness of all people.

Bridge 3:

   F                    G
So let us all begin, we know that love can win.
       F                              F/G         F#/G#
Let it out; don't hold it in, sing it loud as you can...
