1. Intro, Osmond Special, Motown Special 4.32

Osmond Special

Motown Special come on into town tonight.
That old Motown Special coming into town tonight.
She'll come a romping, come a roaring, gonna make everybody feel
Alright!

My world is empty without you babe
My world is empty without you babe

And as I go my way along
I find it hard for me to carry on
I need your strength, I need your tender touch
I need the love I fear I miss so much
I need love now more than before
I can't hardly carry on anymore

I'm gonna make you love me, ooo yes I will, yes I will
I'm gonna make you love me, ooo yes I will, you know I will
Oh yes I will

I can turn the greyest sky blue
I can make it rain whenever I want it to
Oh I can build a castle from a single grain of sand
I can make a ship sail, huh, on dry land
But my life is incomplete and I'm so blue
Cause I can't get next to you
Next to you, I just can't get next to you

I can fly like a bird in the sky
Hey, I can buy anything that money can buy
Oh I can turn a river into a raging fire
I can live forever if I so desire
I don't want all these things I can do
Cause I can't get next to you
No matter what I do

Next to you, chick-a-boom, chick-a-boom
Next to you, chick-a-boom-boom-boom
Next to you, chick-a-boom, chick-a-boom
Next to you, chick-a-boom-boom-boom
And I, wooh I, can't get next to you

Girl you're blowing my mind cause I can't get next to you
Can't you see these tears I'm crying, I can't get next to you
Girl it's you that I need, I gotta get next to you
Can't you see these tears I'm crying, I can't get next to you

Gotta get, gotta get, gotta get, gotta get gotta get next to you

2. Double Lovin’ 1.59

That sounds all
It took me a long time to find a good woman
One that would be true
That's why I'm doing whatever it takes baby to hold on to you

I'm gonna make my love twice as good as it was before
I'm gonna love you so good
You'll be begging and crying for more

Double, double loving
Is what I'm gonna give to you
Oh, you're gonna get double pleasure every time I do, yeah
Double, double loving makes you feel so good inside
And when I double up on my loving
You're gonna be satisfied

I'm gonna double up on my hugging
And my kissing too
And I got a double scoop of love
I've been dying to use on you
So, don't be afraid to give me your love
Cause I won't hurt you
You make the first step baby
And the rest I can easily do

Double, double loving
Is what I'm gonna give to you
Oh, you're gonna get double pleasure every time I do, yeah
Double, double loving makes you feel so good inside
And when I double up on my loving
You're gonna be satisfied

I'm gonna double your lovin
Double your fun
You get two for the price of one
I'm gonna double your lovin
Double your fun
You get two for the price of one

Double, double lovin
Is what I'm gonna give to you
oh, you're gonna get double pleasure every time I do, yeah
Double, double lovin

Alan: Hello there. We’re the Osmonds. My name is Alan. Fellows why don’t you just
introduce yourselves. Hey come on. That’s Wayne, Merrill, Jay and that’s
a …Donny. We sing a lot of songs. And every now and then we find what we
really love. Well tonight Donny starts one especially for you. We like to
dedicate this to each and every one of you as Your Song.

3. Your Song 2.34

It's a little bit funny this feeling inside
I'm not one of those you can easily hide
I don't have much money but boy if I did
I'd buy a big house where we both could live

If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions and a travelling show
I know it's not much but it's the best I can do
My gift is my song and this one's for you

And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world
I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

4. Sweet And Innocent 2.36

I love the little wiggle in your walk
The way you cuddle on my shoulder
But you're too young to know the score
So come back when you're older

Cause you're too sweet and innocent
But you're just oh, too young for me, yeah
The way you hold me, not too tight
The tender way you kiss goodnight
Tells me you've got some growing up to do whoa, oh

Young and beautiful
Is the love oh, you give to me
You're not hip so get with it, girl
Go on back to your make believe world
Sweet and innocent you're too young and beautiful for me

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Sweet and innocent
But you're just oh, too young for me
I'd like to kiss you and hold you tight
So go on home girl or I just might
You’re too sweet and innocent
You're too young and beautiful for me, yeah

You're so sweet (sweet, and innocent)
But you're too much too young, little girl
Go on home
Just leave me alone, little girl
You’re so sweet

5. You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling 3.33

You never close your eyes anymore when I kiss your lips
And there's no tenderness like before in your fingertips
You're trying hard not to show it, (baby)
But baby, baby I know it

You've lost that lovin' feeling
Whoa, that lovin' feeling
You've lost that lovin' feeling
Now it's gone...gone...gone...wooooooh

Now there's no welcome look in your eyes when I reach out for you
And girl you're starting to criticize every little things I do.
It makes me just feel like crying, (baby).
'Cause baby, something in you is dying.

You lost that lovin' feeling,
Whoa, that lovin' feeling,
You've lost that lovin' feeling,
Now it's gone...gone...gone...woooooah

Baby, baby, I get down on my knees for you.
If you would only love me like you used to do, yeah.
We had a love...a love...a love you don't find everyday.
So don't...don't...don't...don't let it all slip away.

You lost that lovin' feeling,
Whoa, that lovin' feeling,
You've lost that lovin' feeling,
Now it's gone...gone...gone...woooooah

You lost that lovin' feeling,
Whoa, that lovin' feeling,
You've lost that lovin' feeling,
Now it's gone...gone...gone...woooooah

6. Proud Mary / Free 5.56

Proud Mary
I left a good job in the city
Working for the man every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleeping
Worrying ’bout the way things might have been

Big wheel keeps on turning
Proud Mary keep on burning
And we’re rolling, rolling, rolling on the river

Free

I just wanna be free, I just wanna be free, I just wanna be free, I just wanna be
free

(solos)

I just wanna be free, I just wanna be free, I just wanna be free, I just wanna be free
I just wanna be free, I just wanna be free, I just wanna be free, I just wanna be free

Alan. Thank you. You know we get asked lots of questions. And one questions
keeps coming up quiet often is who decides what songs we’re gonna record.
Well we all do. One day we were listening to a bunch of tunes. And we found
one we didn’t like. That we thought was terrible, right. We all thought is was pretty bad except for one person in the group whose name I cant mention. Donny
thought it would be a big hit so we recorded it. Here he is singing Go Away
Little Girl

7. Go Away Little Girl 2.10

Go away little girl
Go away little girl

I'm not supposed to be alone with you
I know that your lips are sweet
But our lips must never meet
I’m dating somebody else and I must be true

Oh, go away little girl
Go away little girl
Go away little girl

It's hurting me more each minute that we delay
When you’re near me like this
You're much too hard to resist
So, go away little girl, before I beg you to stay

Go away little girl, Go away little girl
Go away little girl, Go away little girl

It's hurts me more the more that we delay
When you’re near me like this
You're much too hard to resist
So, go away little girl, lets call it a day little girl
Please go away little girl, before I beg you to stay

Go away little girl, Go away little girl, Go away little girl

Side Two

1. Sometimes I feel like a motherless child; where could I go but to the
lord; Every time I feel the spirit 3.48

Sometimes I feel like a motherless child, sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child, a long long way from my home

Living below in this old sinful world
Hardly a comfort can afford
Striving alone to face temptation sore
Wont you tell me where could I go but to the lord
Wont you tell me where could I go but to the lord

Every time I feel the spirit

2. We Gotta Live Together 4.30

Alan: So many of you know we come from a large family. And like most large
families one time after one other we have to wear each others clothes. You
ever had to do that? Well here is a guy who is in real trouble. He is our little
brother Jimmy Osmond.

3. Trouble / I Got A Woman 2.18

Trouble

If you're looking for trouble You came to the right place
If you're looking for trouble look right in my face
I was born standing up And talking back
My daddy was a green-eyed mountain jack
Because I'm evil, my middle name is misery yeah
Beacause I'm evil, so don't you mess around with me
So don't you mess around with me

Whoo ho sometimes, sometime you know
That I've gone away now
Whoo but I don't care
I don't care because it's all, it's all right, it's all right
I want you all to know
that!

I Got A Woman

I got a woman way on down
That's good to me, Oh yes I have!
I got a woman way on down that's good to me
Whoo yeah
She brings me money, when I'm in need
Prettiest girl ever did see
I got a woman way on down
that's good to me whoo yeah
She brings me money, when I'm in need
Prettiest girl, ever did see
I got a woman, way on down
That's good to me
Whooooo yeah

Alan: recently we recorded a couple of new songs one of which is “I Knew You
When” by Donny and there is another one we’d be saving for Los Angeles.
It’s Donny’s new single Hey Girl.

4. Hey Girl 2.50

Hey girl! I want you to know
I'm gone to miss you so much if you go.

And hey girl! I tell you no lie,
Something deep inside of me is going to die
If you say so long, if this is good-bye.

Oh! Hey girl! This can't be true.
How am I supposed to exist without you?

And hey girl! I tell you no lie,
Something deep inside of me is going to die
If you say so long, if this is good-bye.
how can I go on? Without You

Oh! Hey girl! Now sit yourself down,
I'm not ashamed to get down on the ground and beg you, beg you to stay.
Don't go away, hey girl!

5. Down By The Lazy River 2.50

Getcha girl and hold her tight.

Down by the lazy river, everybody follow me.

Better make up your mind, let's get the show on the road.
We're gonna have a party, come along or you'll be sorry, sorry.

6. Yo Yo 2.20

Ho, ho ho, just like a yo yo.
Ho, ho, ho, just like a yo yo.
Well it's hard for me to see how you got such a hold on me.

First I'm up and then I'm down.
Then my heart goes around and around.
Well, I'll bet you five dollars I'm the only fool who'll climb up a string for you.

And need I say I can't break away, you control every little thing I do.
I used to be a swinger, until you wrapped me 'round your finger

Just like a yo yo, just like a yo yo.
Ho, ho, ho, just like a yo yo.
Ho, ho, ho, just like a yo yo.
Turnin', turnin' love keeps a-burnin' like a fire in my heart when we're apart, but
when we're back together, you keep changin' like the weather.
Whoops! Now up and down like a yo yo.
Just like a yo yo.

Ho, ho, ho, just like a yo yo.
Ho, ho, ho, just like a yo yo.
Where I go, and what I do, well it all just depends on you.
You build me up just to let me down.
But I dare not to make a sound.

'Cause I'm so afraid you will cast me away like a beat up, worn out toy.
So I hold on tight with all my might, just to be your lovin' boy.
No matter what you say or do, I'm gonna bounce right back to you now just like a
yo yo.
Just like a yo yo.

Ho, ho, ho, just like a yo yo.
Ho, ho, ho, just like a yo yo.

7. One Bad Apple 2.30

I can tell you've been hurt by that look on your face, girl.
Some guy brought sad into your happy world.
You need love, but you're afraid that if you give in, someone else will come along
and sock it to ya again.

One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch, girl.
Oh, give it one more try before you give up on love.
One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch girl.
Oh, I don't care what they say, I don't care what you heard.

I could make you happy, baby, satisfy you, too.
But how can I if you won't give me a chance to prove my love to you?
Won't you just give me one little chance?
I'll give you my guarantee that you won't be hurt again.

One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch, girl.
Oh, give it one more try before you give up on love.
One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch, girl.
Oh, I don't care what they say, I don't care what you heard now.

I've been noticing you, baby, for a long, long time.
And I'm not ashamed to tell the world that you really messed up my mind.
Girl, to me you're like a dream come true.
I'd rather hurt myself than to ever hurt you.

One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch, girl.
Oh, give it one more try before you give up on love, girl.
One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch, girl.
Oh, I don't care what they say, I don't care what you heard now.
One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch, girl.
Give it one more try before you give up on

Donny: Thank you for coming, you’ve been great. We love you. Goodnight!
All: Goodnight
