Alternate Lyrics

Alternate lyrics to Boston songs. These are transcribed from early demo recordings.



Shakin' (Mother's Milk Shake)
(Early Version of Smokin')


We're gonna play you a song, a little bit of rock-n-roll
You gotta let yourself go, the band's gonna take control
You know we're gonna shake today
We'll pick you up and take you away

Gonna dance tonight

Shakin', Shakin'
Nothing to lose, with the love you're makin'
Shakin', Shakin'
Throwin' out the money that you've been makin'

Get your feet to the floor, everybody rock and roll
Get hold of your mamma, yeah, the music's gonna catch your soul
You know we're gonna shake today
We'll pick you up and take you away

Gonna dance tonight

Shakin', Shakin'
Nothing to lose, with the love you're makin'
Shakin', Shakin'
Throwin' out the money that you've been makin'

Everybody jumpin', dancin' to the boogie tonight
Clap your hands, move your feet
If you don't you know it won't seem right
You know the way we shake and play
Picks me up and takes me away

Gonna dance tonight

You know the way we shake and play
Picks me up and takes me away
Gonna dance tonight
All right!
 
Love
(Early Version of Don't Be Afraid)


Now if you're thinkin' 'bout a love that's left you
And you're thinkin' you should hide away
Don't you know it's wrong
You just try to be strong now babe
Listen to what I've got to say
I know the feelin' that you feel today

But don't be afraid of love

Tell you how I feel about you
Tell you what you want to hear
Tell you that it's true
But it's all up to you now babe
Don't let your love disappear
Can't you believe that I'll be stayin' here

But don't be afraid of love

Baby don't you know good love is hard to find
Don't you think I know what's goin' through your mind
One man left you cryin' so you shut the door
Just let me inside that's what my love is for

I know the feelin' that you feel today

But don't be afraid of love
 
Life Isn't Easy
(Early Version of Something About You)


When I was younger I thought I could stand on my own
I could take or leave you

But there was something about you
I didn't want you to know
It brought a change over me
And it started to show

I've got this feelin' inside
Can't you tell, can't you feel, can't you see

Life isn't easy in my world
How would you feel in what you believe
It isn't easy for you girl
Telling yourself that you wanted your life to be free

When I get angry I say things I don't wanna say
Can't you see I'm sorry

I didn't mean to upset you
Didn't want you to know
It's not what I wanna do
But it started to show

I've got this feelin' inside
Can't you tell, can't you feel, can't you see

Life isn't easy in my world
How would you feel in what you believe
It isn't easy for you girl
Telling yourself that you wanted your life to be free

But there was something about you
It brought a change over me
I've got this feelin' inside
Can't you tell, can't you feel, can't you see

Life isn't easy in my world
How would you feel in what you believe
It isn't easy for you girl
Telling yourself to be free

To be free
To be free

I gotta gotta have you
 
San Francisco Day
(Early Version of Hitch a Ride)


Day is night in New York City
Smoke, like water, runs inside
Steel idle trees to pity
Every living things that's died

Gonna hitch a ride
Sun lights the other side
Music in my ears
Play a hundred years

San Francisco Day
Love's just a smile away
Harboring underground
Bury me alive with your sweet sound

Life is like the coldest winter
People freeze the tears I cry
Words of hail their minds are into
I've got to crack this ice and fly

Gonna hitch a ride
Sun lights the other side
Music in my ears
Play a hundred years

San Francisco Day
Love's just a smile away
Harboring underground
Bury me alive with your sweet sound

Gonna hitch a ride
Sun lights the other side
Music in my ears
Play a hundred years

San Francisco Day
Love's just a smile away
Harboring underground
Bury me alive with your sweet sound
