    Letra

    Baby, baby, baby don't leave me
    Ooh, please don't leave me all by myself
    I've got this burning, burning, yearning feelin' inside me
    Ooh, deep inside me and it hurts so bad
    You came into my heart (baby, baby) so tenderly
    With a burning love (baby, baby)
    That stings like a bee (baby, baby)
    Now that I surrender (baby, baby) so helplessly
    You now want to leave (baby, baby)
    Ooh, you wanna leave me (baby, baby)
    Ooh (baby, baby)
    Baby, baby, where did our love go?
    Ooh, don't you want me?
    Don't you want me no more (baby, baby)?
    Ooh, baby
    Baby, baby, where did our love go?
    And all your promises of a love forevermore!
    I've got this burning, burning, yearning feelin' inside me
    Ooh, deep inside me, and it hurts so bad
    Before you won my heart (baby, baby)
    You were a perfect guy
    But now that you got me
    You wanna leave me behind (baby, baby)
    Ooh, baby
    Baby, baby, baby don't leave me
    Ooh, please don't leave me all by myself (baby, baby)
    Ooh baby, baby, baby

    Letra

    I need somebody
    (Help!) not just anybody
    (Help!) you know I need someone
    Help!
    I never needed anybody's help in any way
    But now these days are gone, I'm not so self assured (but now these days are gone)
    (And now I find) Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors
    Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
    And I do appreciate you being 'round
    Help me get my feet back on the ground
    Won't you please, please help me?
    And now my life has changed in oh so many ways (and now my life has changed)
    My independence seems to vanish in the haze
    But every now and then I feel so insecure (I know that I)
    I know that I just need you like I've never done before
    Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
    And I do appreciate you being 'round
    Help me get my feet back on the ground
    Won't you please, please help me
    When I was younger, so much younger than today
    I never needed anybody's help in any way
    But now these days are gone, I'm not so self assured (but now these days are gone)
    (And now I find) now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors
    Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
    And I do appreciate you being 'round
    Help me get my feet back on the ground
    Won't you please, please help me, help me, help me, ooh

     

    3.- Light My Fire

    En 1967, cuando los LP se estaban convirtiendo en el medio definitivo de expresión del rock & roll, comenzó a ensancharse un abismo entre los artistas de canciones y los artistas de álbumes serios. Con su gran éxito, The Doors dividieron la diferencia con una obra maestra psicodélica de siete minutos impulsada por los solos de teclado de Ray Manzarek, así como una edición de radio de 2:52 que convirtió a Jim Morrison en un ídolo adolescente de la noche a la mañana.

    Letra

    You know that it would be untrue
    You know that I would be a liar
    If I was to say to you
    Girl, we couldn't get much higher
    Come on baby, light my fire
    Come on baby, light my fire
    Try to set the night on fire
    The time to hesitate is through
    No time to wallow in the mire
    Try now we can only lose
    And our love become a funeral pyre
    Come on baby, light my fire
    Come on baby, light my fire
    Try to set the night on fire, yeah
    The time to hesitate is through
    No time to wallow in the mire
    Try now we can only lose
    And our love become a funeral pyre
    Come on baby, light my fire
    Come on baby, light my fire
    Try to set the night on fire, yeah
    You know that it would be untrue
    You know that I would be a liar
    If I was to say to you
    Girl, we couldn't get much higher
    Come on baby, light my fire
    Come on baby, light my fire
    Try to set the night on fire
    Try to set the night on fire
    Try to set the night on fire
    Try to set the night on fire

    4.- Satisfaction

    Keith Richards fue el responsable del riff de este primer éxito de los Rolling Stones en Estados Unidos.

    Letra

    I can't get no satisfaction, I can't get no satisfaction
    'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
    I can't get no, I can't get no
    When I'm drivin' in my car, and the man come on the radio
    He's tellin' me more and more about some useless information
    Supposed to fire my imagination
    I can't get no, oh, no, no, no, hey, hey, hey
    That's what I say
    I can't get no satisfaction, I can't get no satisfaction
    'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
    I can't get no, I can't get no
    When I'm watchin' my TV and a man comes on and tells me
    How white my shirts can be
    But, he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't smoke
    The same cigarettes as me
    I can't get no, oh, no, no, no, hey, hey, hey
    That's what I say
    I can't get no satisfaction, I can't get no girl reaction
    'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
    I can't get no, I can't get no
    When I'm ridin' 'round the world
    And I'm doin' this and I'm signin' that
    And I'm tryin' to make some girl, who tells me
    Baby, better come back maybe next week
    Can't you see I'm on a losing streak?
    I can't get no, oh, no, no, no, hey, hey, hey
    That's what I say, I can't get no, I can't get no
    I can't get no satisfaction, no satisfaction
    No satisfaction, no satisfaction
    I can't get no

    And the way you look tonight
    Yes, you're lovely, with your smile so warm
    And your cheeks so soft
    There is nothing for me but to love you
    And the way you look tonight
    With each word your tenderness grows
    Tearin' my fear apart
    And that laugh, wrinkles your nose
    Touches my foolish heart
    Lovely, never, never change
    Keep that breathless charm
    Won't you please arrange it?
    'Cause I love you
    A-just the way you look tonight
    And that laugh that wrinkles your nose
    It touches my foolish heart
    Lovely, don't you ever change
    Keep that breathless charm
    Won't you please arrange it?
    'Cause I love you
    A-just the way you look tonight
    Mm, mm, mm, mm,
    Just the way you look tonight

    (They say that time) they say that time
    (Heals a broken heart) heals a broken heart
    (But time has stood still) but time has stood still
    (Since we've been apart) since we've been apart
    I said I've made up my mind
    To live in memories of the lonesome times

    It's useless to say
    So I'll just live my life of dreams of yesterday (of yesterday)

    The Midwest farmer's daughters really make you feel alright
    And the Northern girls with the way they kiss
    They keep their boyfriends warm at night
    I wish they all could be California (girls)
    I wish they all could be California
    I wish they all could be California girls
    The West coast has the sunshine
    And the girls all get so tanned
    I dig a French bikini on Hawaiian island
    Dolls by a palm tree in the sand
    I been all around this great big world
    And I seen all kinds of girls
    Yeah, but I couldn't wait to get back in the States
    Back to the cutest girls in the world
    I wish they all could be California (girls)
    I wish they all could be California
    I wish they all could be California girls
    I wish they all could be California girls
    (Girls, girls, girls, yeah I dig the)
    I wish they all could be California girls
    (Girls, girls, girls, yeah I dig the)
    I wish they all could be California girls
    (Girls, girls, girls, yeah I dig the)
    I wish they all could be California girls
    (Girls, girls, girls, yeah I dig the)
    I wish they all could be California girls
    (Girls, girls, girls, yeah I dig the)
    I wish they all could be California girls
