SHE HAS FUNNY CARS (J. Kaukonen/M. Balin)

Every day I tried so hard to know your mind
And find out what's inside you.
Time goes on and I don't know just where you are
Or how I'm going to find you.
You can do whatever ya please.
(Grace: Do you always)
The world's waiting to be seized!
(Grace: Want to leave me love?)
You can collect 
(Grace: Keep on)
all the neglect,
(Grace: Walking heres,)
Or all the self-respect you need
(Grace: What you need).
And I know, and I know, and I know!
Your mind's guaranteed,
It's all you'll ever need...
So what do you want with me?
We live but once
But difference can be found around,
In spite of all the sorrow.
If you see black, you can't look back,
You can't look front,
You cannot face tomorrow.
Some have it nice
(Grace: Fat and round)
Flash, paradise,
They're very wise at their disguise,
(Grace: They may be wise, but all gone tomorrow).
Trying to revolutionize tomorrow.
And I know, and I know, and I know!
Your mind's guaranteed,
It's all you ever need...
So what do you want with me?
SOMEBODY TO LOVE (Grace Slick)

When the truth is found to be lies
and all the joy within you dies
Don't you want somebody to love
Don't you need somebody to love
Wouldn't you love somebody to love
You better find somebody to love, love.
When the garden flowers baby are dead yes
And your mind, your mind is so full of red
Don't you want somebody to love
Don't you need somebody to love
Wouldn't you love somebody to love
You better find somebody to love
Your eyes, I say your eyes may look like his, Yeh
But in your head baby I'm afraid you don't know where it is
Don't you want somebody to love
Don't you need somebody to love
Wouldn't you love somebody to love
You better find somebody to love
(Break)
Tears are running ah running down your breast
And your friends baby, they treat you like a guest
Don't you want somebody to love
Don't you need somebody to love
Wouldn't you love somebody to love
You better find somebody to love
MY BEST FRIEND (A. Spence)

Ah, you're my best friend
(You are my best friend)
And I love you so well
'Till the end of time you won't see me.
Ah, you're my best friend
(You are my best friend)
And I see you, it seems
Now I can see I have fallen into your love stream
I follow your dream
Do you know what I mean, yeh
I follow you where ever time will take me to
Or ever I'll be one with you.
One with you, one with you.
Ah, you're my best friend
(You are my best friend)
And I'm all that your seeing
I set you free and just like me
You'll be being
In love with me
Do you know what I mean, yeh
Do you know what I need now
(Grace: Do you know what I mean, yeh)
I'm gonna set you free, yeh
(Grace: Do you know)
You be in love with me, my love
(Grace: You you know what I)
You are my best friend now.
Ah, you're my best friend
(You are my best friend)
And I love you so well
'Till the end of time you won't see me.
Ah, you're my best friend
(You are my best friend)
And I see you, it seems
Now I can see I have fallen into your love stream
I follow your dream
Do you know what I mean, yeh
Do you know what I need now.
(Grace: Oh, do you know)
You'd be in love with me now
(Grace: Do you know)
I'm gonna set you free, yeh
(Grace: Oh, what I need)
Ah, you're my best friend now.
Ah, you're my best friend.
TODAY (M. Balin/P. Kantner)

Today I feel like pleasing you more than before
Today I know what I wanna do but I don't know what for
To be living for you is all I want to do
To be loving you it'll all be there when my dreams come true
Today you'll make me say that I somehow have changed
Today you look into my eyes, I'm just not the same
To be anymore than all I am would be a lie
I'm so full of love I could burst apart and start to cry
Today everything you want, I swear it all will come true
Today I realize how much I'm in love with you
With you standing here I could tell the world what it means to love
To go on from here I can't use words, they don't say enough
Please, please listen to me
It's taking so long to come true
And it's all for you
All for you
COMIN' BACK TO ME (M. Balin)

The summer had inhaled
And held its breath too long.
The winter looked the same,
As if it never had gone,
And through an open window,
Where no curtain hung,
I saw you, I saw you,
Coming back to me.
One begins to read between 
The pages of a look.
The shape of sleepy music,
And suddenly you're hooked.
Through the rain upon the trees
That kisses on the run
I saw you, I saw you,
Coming back to me.
You came to stay and live my way,
Scatter my love like leaves in the wind.
You always say, you won't go away,
But I know what it always has been,
It always has been.
A transparent dream
Beneath an occasional sigh
Most of the time,
I just let it go by.
Now I wish it hadn't begun.
I saw you, yes I saw you,
Coming back to me.
Strolling the hill's,
Overlooking the shore,
I realize I've been here before.
The shadow in the mist
Could have been anyone.
I saw you, I saw you,
Coming back to me.
Small things like reasons
Are put in a jar.
Whatever happened to wishes,
Wished on a star?
Was it just something
That I made up for fun?
I saw you, I saw you,
Coming back to me.
3/5's OF A MILE IN 10 SECONDS (M. Balin)

Do away with people blowing my mind
Do away with people wasting my precious time
Take me to a simple place
Where I can easily see my face
Maybe, baby, I'll say that you were kind.
Know I love you baby, yes I do
Know I love you baby, yes I do
Do away with people laughing at my hair
Do away with people climbing on my precious prayers
Take me to a circus tent
Where I can easily pay my rent
And all the other freaks will share my cares
Know I love you baby, yes I do
Know I love you baby, yes I do
(Break)
Do away with things that come on obscene
Like hot rods real clean real fine nicotine
Sometimes the price is 65 dollars
Prices like that make a grown man holler
'specially when it's sold by a kid who's only 15
Know I love you baby, yes I do
Know I love you baby, yes I do
3/5th's of a mile in 10 seconds...
D.C.B.A.-25 (P. Kantner)

It's time you walked away, and set me free
I must move away, leave you be.
Has been good to us my friend,
Wait, and see how it will end.
We come and go, as we please.
(Grace: We come and go as we please)
(Paul: That's how it has to be).
Here in crystal chandelier, unwhole.
Too many days, I've left unstoned.
If you don't mind happiness
Purple pleasure feels in the sun
How don't you know I'm runnin' home
(Grace: Don't you know I'm runnin' home)
(Paul: To a place, to you, unknown).
(Break)
I take great ease, in your sitting there.
Searching for myself, I find a place there.
I see the people of the world,
Where they are and what they could be.
I can but dance, behind your smile
(Grace: I can but dance behind your smile)
(Paul: You were the world to me, for a while)
HOW DO YOU FEEL (Tom Mastin)

Look into her eye's
Do you see what I mean
Just look at her hair
And when she speaks, oh, oh what a pleasant surprise
How do you feel
Just look at her smile
Do you see what I mean
She is looking our way
Oh how I wish we could stay, just stay for awhile.
How do you feel
When I meet a girl like that
I don't know what to say
But to greet a girl like that
Brightens up my day
(My Day, oh)
How do you feel
Just look at her walk
Do you see what I mean
She is coming our way
Oh how my heart beats I don't even think I could talk
How do you feel
When I meet a girl like that
I don't know what to say
But to greet a girl like that
Brightens up my day
(My Day, oh)
How do you feel
(Break)
How do you feel
(Do you know how you feel)
Just to look at her smile
(Tell me how do you feel)
Look into her eye's
(Tell me how do you feel)
She is coming our way
(Tell me how do you feel)
Look into her eye's
(Tell me how do you feel)
She is coming our way
(Tell me how do you feel)
WHITE RABBIT (G. Slick)

One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small,
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all.
Go ask Alice
When she's ten feet tall.
And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall,
Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call.
Call Alice
When she was just small.
When the men on the chessboard
Get up and tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving low.
Go ask Alice
I think she'll know.
When logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead,
And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's "off with her head!"
Remember what the door mouse said:
"Feed your head. Feed your head."
PLASTIC FANTASTIC LOVER (M. Balin)

Her neon mouth,
With a bleeding talk smile,
Nothing but electric sign
You could say she has, an individual style
She's a part of a carnival time.
Super sealed lady,
Chrome coloured clothes you wear,
Coz you have no other
But I suppose, no one knows
Your my plastic fantastic lover.
Her rattling cough
Never shuts off
Is nothing but a used machine
Her aluminum finish, slightly diminished
Is the best I've ever have seen.
Cosmetic baby,
Plugged into me
And never ever find another
And I realize, no ones wise
To my plastic fantastic lover
(Break)
The electrical dust
Is starting to rust
Her trapezoid thermometer taste
All the red tape is mechanical rape
Of the TV program waste
Data control and IBM
Science is mankind's brother
But all I see is draining me
On my plastic fantastic lover
(Pick it up, Pick it up)
