Lyrics to Port Arthur High School Reunion
Port Arthur High School Reunion Video:
What do you think about your town since you've left and come back ?

It's fantastic! I was across the river from the club last night,
I never had more fun in my life! Except sometimes in California I have more fun.

Do you plan to come back soon ?

Oh ? Er, er, er, I have no immediate plans, ha ha ha!!

Did you entertain in high school, at the high school, when you went back at the high school ?

Only when I walked down the aisles, man. No, I did, no, I was, er,
I was a painter, and a sort of a recluse in high school. I've changed.

What happened ?

I got liberated! I don't know, I just started to sing and singing makes you want to come out because painting,
I feel, keeps you inside, you know ? And once you start singing you just sort of want too talk to people more
and go out more and, you know, your lifestyle's becomes more a come-out, flow-out thing instead of a hold-it-and-be-quiet type.

How were you different from your schoolmates when you were a teenager ?

I don't know, why don't you ask them ?

Did they make you different ?


Otherwise were you different in comparison with them, or were you ?

I felt apart from them.

Did you take a part in football games ?

I think not. I didn't go to the high school prom, and er ...

Oh, you were asked, weren't you ?

No, I wasn't. I don't think, I don't think they wanted to take me.
Till I'll be a hundred and sufferin'! It's enough to make you wanna sing the blues!

Raise Your Hand
( Woodstock )

If there's anythin' that you need,
Hon, that you've never, ever, ever had.
I know you've never had it.
Oh, honey, don't you just sit there cryin',
Don't just sit there feelin' bad.
No, no, no.

You'd better get up,
Now do you understand,
And raise you hand!
I said raise your hand, hey.

You know I'm standin' about, yes I am.
Want to give you all my love.
Oh, honey, won't you come on and open up,
I said, open up your heart.
Please, let me try.

You'd better to be good.
Don't ya understand ?
Raise your hand.
I said, raise your hand,
Right here, right now, c'mon!!
Whoaaaaah, oh yeah!!

If there's anything you need,
Honey, that you ever, ever, ever try,
I want you to give it up
I said to give it all, don't you know that you have.

You'd better be good.
Don't ya understand,
Raise your hand.
I said, raise your hand,
Raise it,
Raise it,
Raise it,

Ha wah do wah

I said every day when I go out
I said I wanna move.
Every day when I go out
I tell ya I wanna groove.

I said move, yeah
Said move now
Move, yeah
Honey, I want you to come along
And raise your hand.
Babe, I want you to come along,
Raise your hand.
If you know where you belong
I'll tell you
And now
Said here and now
Said here now, now, now, now, now, now, now!

Raise your hand, yeah. X4
