Do What You Want, Be What You Are (Hall & Oates)

Hallandoates

Do what you want, be what you are
Do what you want girl, but be what you are
There ain’t no right er wrong way
Just a play from the heart
It ain’t a sign of weakness to give yourself away
Because the strong give up and move on,
While the weak, weak give up and stay
So do what you want to do
But be what you are …
Do you believe in hot cars,
Leather bars, or movie stars
Is that what’s real
Payin’ dues, earth shoes, chicago blues
Is that how you feel?
You can change, but you can’t conceal
What’s deep inside you
Lt’s your game, lt’s your deal
So do what you want to do
But be what you are…

Here’s to Life (Shirley Horn)

Shirleyhorn

No complaints and no regrets
I still believe in chasing dreams and placing bets
But I had learn that all you give is all you get
So give it all you got
I had my share
I drank my fill
And even though I’m satisfied
I’m hungry still
To see what’s down another road beyond the hill
And do it all again
So here’s to life
And every joy it brings
So here’s to life
To dreamers and their dreams
Funny how the time just flies
How love can go from warm hellos
To sad goodbyes
And leave you with the memories you’ve memorized
To keep your winters warm
For there’s no yes in yesterday
And who knows what tomorrow brings or takes away
As long as I’m still in the game
I want to play
For laughs for life for love
So here’s to life
And every joy it brings
Here’s to life
For dreamers and their dreams
May all your storms be weathered
And all that’s good get better
Here’s to life
Here’s to love
Here’s to you
May all your storms be weathered
And all that’s good get better
Here’s to life
Here’s to love
Here’s to you
