about

MonaLisa Twins Liverpool, UK

The MonaLisa Twins are one of the very few modern bands writing songs in the 60's Beat music tradition, reviving the genre with a fresh twist without sounding pop-ish or trivial. On their debut album "When We're Together" they present Rock 'n' Roll and Beat music, skillfully venturing out in Psychedelic, Folk and Latin genres, inspired by the likes of The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel. ... more

Track Name: Revolution
Revolution

You say you want a revolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
You tell me that it's evolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
But when you talk about destruction
Don't you know that you can count me out

Don't you know it's gonna be all right
All right, all right

You say you got a real solution
Well, you know
We'd all love to see the plan
You ask me for a contribution
Well, you know
We're doing what we can
But when you want money for people with minds that hate
All I can tell is brother you have to wait

Don't you know it's gonna be all right
All right, all right, all right, all right

Guitar Solo

You say you'll change the constitution
Well, you know
We all want to change your head
You tell me it's the institution
Well, you know
You better free you mind instead
But if you go carrying pictures of chairman Mao
You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow

Don't you know it's gonna be all right
Don't you know it's gonna be all right
Don't you know it's gonna be all right
All right
All right, all right, all right
All right, all right, all right, all right
Track Name: Friday On My Mind
Friday On My Mind

Monday morning feels so bad
Ev'rybody seems to nag me
Coming Tuesday I feel better
Even my old man looks good
Wednesday just don't go
Thursday goes too slow
I've got Friday on my mind

Gonna have fun in the city
Be with my girl she's so pretty
She looks fine tonight
She is out of sight to me
Tonight ... I spend my bread
Tonight ... I lose my head
Tonight ... I got to get tonight
Monday I have Friday on my mind

Do the five day drag once more
Know of nothing else that bugs me
More than working for the rich man
Hey I'll change that scene one day
Today I might be mad
Tomorrow I'll be glad
I've got Friday on my mind

Gonna have fun in the city
Be with my girl she's so pretty
She looks fine tonight
She is out of sight to me
Tonight ... I spend my bread
Tonight ... I lose my head
Tonight ... I got to get tonight
Monday I have Friday on my mind
Track Name: Johnny B. Goode
Johnny B. Goode

Deep down Louisiana, close to New Orleans
Way back up in the woods among the evergreens
There stood a log cabin made of earth and wood
Where lived a country boy named Johnny B. Goode
Who never ever learned to read or write so well
But he could play the guitar just like a ringing a bell

Go go, Go Johnny go go go
Go, Johnny go go go
Go, Johnny go go go
Go, Johnny go go go
Go, Johnny B. Goode

He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack
Go sit beneath the tree by the railroad track
Oh, the engineers would see him sitting in the shade
Strumming with the rhythm that the drivers made
People passing by, they would stop and say
Oh my, but that little country boy could play

Go go, Go Johnny go go go
Go, Johnny go go go
Go, Johnny go go go
Go, Johnny go go go
Go, Johnny B. Goode

Guitar Solo

His mother told him "Someday you will be a man
And you will be the leader of a big old band
Oh, many people coming from miles around
To hear you play your music when the sun go down
Maybe someday your name will be in lights
Saying Johnny B. Goode tonight"

Go go, Go Johnny go
Go, go, go Johnny go
Go, go, go Johnny go
Go, go, go Johnny go
Oh Go, Johnny B. Goode
Track Name: This Boy
This Boy

That boy took my love away
Oh, he'll regret it someday
But this boy wants you back again

That boy isn't good for you
Though he may want you too
This boy wants you back again

Oh, and this boy would be happy
Just to love you, but oh my
That boy won't be happy
Till he's seen you cry

This boy wouldn't mind the pain
Would always feel the same
If this boy gets you back again

Guitar Solo

This boy
This boy
This boy
This boy
This boy
Track Name: In My Life
In My Life

There are places I remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
In my life I love you more
Track Name: Blackbird
Blackbird

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

Black bird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free

Blackbird fly
Blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night

Guitar Solo

Blackbird fly
Blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
Track Name: For What It's Worth
For What It's Worth

There's somethin' happenin' here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Tellin' me, I got to beware

I think it's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

Battle lines being drawn
Nobody's right when everybody's wrong
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind

You better stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

What a field-day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying hooray for our side

I think it's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
You step out of line, the man come and take you away
You better stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

Guitar Solo

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
Step out of line, the man come and take you away
You better stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down, Hey

Track Name: While My Guitar Gently Weeps
While My Guitar Gently Weeps

I look at you all, see the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don't know why nobody told you
How to unfold your love
I don't know how someone controlled you
They bought and sold you

I look at the world and I notice it's turning
While my guitar gently weeps
With every mistake we must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps

Guitar Solo

I don't know how you were diverted
You were perverted too
I don't know how you were inverted
No one alerted you

I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
Look at you all
Still my guitar gently weeps

Though life would still go on believe me
The world could show nothing to me
So what good would living do me

God only knows what I'd be without you
