I'm Every Woman
Written by Nick Ashford and Valerie Simpson

CHORUS:
I'm every woman, it's all in me
Anything you want done, baby
I'll do it naturally
I'm every woman, it's all in me
I can read your thoughts right now
Every one from A to Z

I can cast a spell
With secrets you can't tell
Mix a special brew
Put fire inside of you
But anytime you feel
Danger or fear
Instantly I will appear, 'cause

CHORUS

I can sense your needs
Like rain on to the seeds
I can make a rhyme
Of confusion in your mind
And when it comes down
To some good old fashioned love
That's what I've got plenty of, 'cause

CHORUS

I ain't braggin' 'cause I'm the one
You just ask me ooh and it shall be done
And don't bother to compare
'Cause I've got it
I've got it, I've got it, yeah

I'm every woman (repeat and fade)

Love Has Fallen On Me
Written by C. Stepney and L. Webber

Love is a burning inside
I never had this feeling before, no
All I know is that it won't let me be myself
Hey, is this really love
Oh maybe that's the reason
I feel so good when you're around
(Feel so good when you're around)

Why can't I remember
The day I melted before your charms
Oh was it way back in September
When you held me in your arms
Now that I see that you're the one for me
It's no more a mystery
Love has fallen down on me
Ooh I'm in love with you

Love has fallen on me
Now I really see
Love has fallen on me

Oh what tender love you bring
No, it's not a game
Oh what tender love you bring
No, it's not a game
Hey what tender love you bring
I fell in love with you
Fell in love with you

One day in September love came falling down on me
One day in September love came tumbling down on me

Ooh what tender love you bring
Oh now Lord I can't, no no,
And I can't believe my eyes
No no one day in September,
It came on down
Oh fallin' down, love came falling all around

I fell in love with you
Fell in love with you

Roll Me Through The Rushes
Written by D. Lasley and L. Marrano

Roll me through the rushes like Moses
Roll me through the rushes just like Moses

Roll me through the rushes like Moses
Guide me to the new woman who waits
Current, leave me on the banks
By the cottage
Wher we will dine with silver cups
And golden plates

Roll me through the rushes like Moses
Roll me through the rushes just like Moses

I've prepared for my last journey
You know I've worked all my life
To make this basket strong
But a woman alone on a river
She can't stay in the water too long

I've been chilled, I've lost my will
And I've stayed away from rivers
Much too long
I really must stay in this dirty dirty city
Till I found out that my strength was gone

Roll me through the rushes like Moses
Roll me through the rushes just like Moses
Just like Moses

Make my journey, make it short in space
Let me lose this hardness that I got now, Lord
Water, wash away all traces of hate
I will do what you say
If you just show me how, river

Roll me through the rushes like Moses
Roll me through the rushes just like Moses
Roll me through the rushes like Moses
Roll me through the rushes
Just like Moses on the Nile

River, river (sail)
River, river (sail)
River, river (sail)
River, river (sail)

Sleep On It
Written by A. Kastner and L. J. McNally

CHORUS:
(We've got to) Sleep on it
Everything's gonna be alright
If we just sleep on it
Everything's gonna be alright

Tonight there will be no more quarrelling
We'll shut out the lights, close our eyes
I don't know how this started
I don't know why we fight
I'll appologize for all the unkind things
I said to you
Why can't I see what's right for me
Might not be right for you

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
People are gonna think
What they what to think
Feel what they want to feel
I don't wanna see you cry
I don't wanna see you compromise
The things that shine
The brightest in your eyes
Hold on to your dreams
Hold on to them tight

Life Is A Dance
Written by Gavin Christopher

CHORUS:
Life is a dance, life is a dance
Life is a dance, life is a dance

Everywhere coast to coast
Around the land
We all have one thing in common
We all love to dance
In and out of discos, crazy lights
Keep on movin' all through the night

CHORUS

Why don't you listen
Listen to the groove
I am sure enough sure you'll find
Just the rhythm, the rhythm of your soul
Dance to the music keepin' steady time

CHORUS

Dance to the music, crazy lights
Dance to the music on crazy lights
Dance to the music, crazy lights
Dance

We Got The Love (featuring George Benson)
Written by Chaka Khan, Mark Stevens, Traude Sapik, and Keith Boyd, Jr.

You know it hurts me
When I can't be next to you
And though we're young I know
You feel the same way, too
Deep in our hearts we know
It's just a matter of time
'Cause we'll be together one day

And when we met
Out on the streets along the way
It wasn't by chance that we
Were passing by that day
As sure as there's a moon
And stars above I know
We'll be together for sure

As sure as that nose on your face
We were meant for each other's arms
Just as one and one make two
You were made for me
I was made for you (boy)
Don't try to hide that smile
I know that's on your face
And when you stare (look) at me
I'll look the other way
And we won't give away
What we know from the start
That we've got that love in our hearts

Deep in our hearts
In our hearts we've got that love
In our hearts we've got that love
In our hearts we've got that love
Oh deep down in our hearts
We've got that love
Oh we're very into lovin', yeah
Oh that love in our hearts
We've got that love in our hearts
Oh baby, we've got that love

Some Love
Written by Chaka Khan, Mark Stevens, Traude Sapik, and Keith Boyd, Jr.

CHORUS:
Some love
You know it brings me down down down
Some love
You know it brings me down down down

They say that love is heaven sent
Well I guess they told another lie
How can it be a part of me
You can't even look me in my eye

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
All this time you made a fool of me
You told honey sweet lies
I'm fed up with your alibis
I was blind, now I see, yeah

CHORUS

Let's end this game, let's stop this farce
'Cause I don't wanna live a lie
Life's so short, and love's so sparse
I guess I'll have to say goodbye
It brings me down down down, yeah
Some love, it brings me down down down

BRIDGE

If this is love, I want no part of it
They call this love
Now I've got to quit you, baby
If this is love, I want no part of it
They call this love, dirty dirty love
Some love

If this is love don't break my heart
If this is love don't want no part
If this is love don't break my heart
If this is love don't want no part
If this is love don't break my heart
If this is love don't want no part
If this is love don't break my heart

Some love
Oh first you burn me with desire
Then you go and douse the fire

A Woman In A Man's World
Written by A. Kastner and L. J. McNally

It's a losing game I play
In a dog eat dog, show biz town
I've got a dream of my own
And I carry my own weight
But still they try to drag me down

CHORUS:
I'm a woman in a man's world
I'm a woman in a man's world

So I'm fool enough to say
That a woman's place is in the home
Working twice as hard
For the same reward as any man, yeah

CHORUS

For my very own
It'll make me strong if I don't give in
Cause the harder the fight
Oh, the sweeter the prize I'm sure to win

The Message In The Middle Of The Bottom
Written by Lalomie Washburn

VERSE 1:
I never meant a single thing when you tried it
You know it, I felt it, I liked it, I did it
I never meant to put it there but somewhere In dispair
It got moved into view, then I liked it
I never meant a single word when I said I could love you
I thought it, I heard it, I used it
I never meant a single beat of my heart to be yours
'Cause I knew, if you knew, you'd abuse it

CHORUS:
There's a message in the middle of the bottom
You see 'em, you love 'em, you got 'em
There's a proper time to pick 'em when they're fallen
Just listen, you'll hear 'em a-callin
There's a special way to know you got his lovin'
Can't you feel it, you ought to, you taught him
There's a special time for lovin' and another time
For huggin and a lot of time to leave him alone

VERSE 2:
I have a feelin' deep inside that I've got you
I'll keep you. why not? it'll make me feel better
If there's a woman on this earth who should love you
It's me boy, don't fight it, admit it, you love it
If you think there's someone else who can move you
I'll lose you, no problem, you're free to go get her
I just refuse to let a lady step in on my show
If you choose, do it now or forget it

CHORUS

VERSE 1

CHORUS

There's a special time for lovin' and another time
For huggin and a lot of time to leave him alone.

I Was Made To Love Him
Written by Stevie Wonder, H. Cosby, S. Moy and Lula Mae Hardaway

I was born in Little Rock
I had a childhood sweetheart
We were always hand in hand
He wore high top shoes and shirt tails
Chaka wore her pigtails
I knew I loved him even then

Well you know my papa disapproved
My mama boo hoo hooed
But I told 'em time and time again
Don't you know

I was made to love him
Build my world all around him
Yeah, yeah, yeah

He's been my inspiration
And shows appreciation
For the love I gave him through the years
Like a sweet magnolia tree
My love blossoms tenderly
My life grew sweeter through the years
I know that

My baby loves me
My baby needs me
That's why we've made it through the years

I was made to love him
Build my world all around him
Yeah, yeah, yeah

All through thick and thin
My love just won't end
'Cause my I love my baby, love my baby, oh

My baby loves me
My baby needs me
That's why we've made it through the years

When I was knee-high to a chicken
The love bug bit me
And I'm still, still in love

If the distant mountain crumble
Love won't tumble
I'll still be standin' there

Can't go nowhere, I'm on fire...
