You’re The One That I Want 

Posted: March 9, 2017 in Songs

(from Grease, the 1971 musical)
deConstructed And suNg by aNgus and juLia sTone
I got chills they’re multiplying

And I’m losing control

Cause the power you’re supplying

It’s Electrifying!
You better shape up cause I need a man

And my heart is set on you

You better shape up, you better understand

To my heart I must be true(nothin left, nothin left for me to do)
You’re the one that I want(You are the one I want) oh oh oh honey

You’re the one that I want(You are the one I want) oh oh oh honey

You’re the one that I want(You are the one I want) oh oh oh honey

The one that I neeeeeed oh yes indee-ee-heed
If you’re filled with affection

You’re too shy to convey

Meditate in my direction

Feel your way
I better shape up, cause you need a man (I need a man)

Who can keep me satisfied

I better shape up, if I’m gonna prove (you better prove)

That my faith is justified

Are you sure? Yes I’m sure down deep inside
You’re the one that I want (You are the one I want)oh oh oh honey

You’re the one that I want(You are the one I want) oh oh oh honey

You’re the one that I want(You are the one I want) oh oh oh honey

The one that I neeeeed oh yes indee-ee-heed
You’re the one that I want(You are the one I want) oh oh oh honey

You’re the one that I want(You are the one I want) oh oh oh honey

You’re the one that I want(You are the one I want) oh oh oh honey

The one that I neeeed oh yes indee-ee-heed
You’re the one that I want(You are the one I want) oh oh oh honey

You’re the one that I want(You are the one I want) oh oh oh honey

You’re the one that I want(You are the one I want) oh oh oh honey

The one that I neeeed oh yes indee-ee-heed
You’re the one that I want(You are the one I want) oh oh oh honey

You’re the one that I want(You are the one I want) oh oh oh honey

You’re the one that I want(You are the one I want) oh oh oh honey

The one that I neeeeeed oh yes indee-ee-heed

           G Em B2

              Oh no, I see

                 Fmaj7 Am G

              A spider web is tangled up with me

                       Em B2

              And I lost my head

                     Fmaj7 Am G

              The thought of all the stupid things I’ve said

                                                                                          G Em B2 (x2

    Oh no, what’s this?

              A spider web, and I’m caught in the middle

              So I turned to run

              The thought of all the stupid things I’ve done

                                        A2 Em add7
                                  And I never meant to cause you trouble

                                  And I never meant to do you wrong

                                  And I, well if I ever caused you trouble

                                        A2 Em

                                  Oh no, I never meant to do you harm

                                                                                                  G Em B2 (x2)
              Oh no, I see

              A spider web and it’s me in the middle

              So I twist and turn

              Here am I in my little bubble
                                  Singing out, I never meant to cause you trouble

                                  I never meant to do you wrong

                                  Ahhh, well if I ever caused you trouble

                                  Oh no, I never meant to do you harm

                                                                                                  G Em B2 (x4)
                                                 Em F#m G F#m

                                                     They spun a web for me

                                                     They spun a web for me

                                                     They spun a web for me…

                                                                                                  Em

Capo on 2.fret (for original key of A)

GWhen the night has come
EmAnd the land is dark
And the Cmoon is the Donly light we’ll Gsee  
GNo I won’t be afraid, no I Emwon’t be afraid
Just as Clong as you Dstand, stand Gby me

GAnd darlin’, darlin’, stand by me,
oh Emstand by me
oh Cstand, Dstand by me, Gstand by me.

GIf the sky that we look upon
EmShould tumble and fall
Or the Cmountains should Dcrumble to the Gsea  
GI won’t cry, I won’t cry, no I Emwon’t shed a tear
Just as Clong as you Dstand, stand by Gme  

GAnd darlin’, darlin’, stand by me, oh Emstand by me
oh Cstand now, DStand by me, Gstand by me.


Solo

GAnd darlin’, darlin’, stand by me, oh Emstand by me
oh Cstand now, DStand by me, Gstand by me.

GWhenever you’re in trouble won’t you stand by me,
oh now now Emstand by me

Oh Cstand now, Dstand by me, Gstand by me

In My Life

This is such a easy going, lovely song.

Lennon/McCartney

G D G D

G Em G7 C Cm G
There are places I’ll remember all my li–ife though some have changed,

G Em G7 C Cm G
Some forever not for better, some have go–one and some remain.

Em C F G
All these places had their moments, with lovers and friends I still can recall,

Em A7 Cm G D
Some are dead and some are living, in my life I’ve loved them all.

G Em G7 C Cm G
But of all these friends and lovers, there is no one compares with you,

G Em G7 C Cm G
And these memories lose their meaning, when I think of love as something new.

Em C F G
Though I know I’ll never lose affection for people and things that went before,

Em A7 Cm G D
I know I’ll often stop and think about them, in my life I’ll love you more.

(Piano/Harpsichord solo)

G Em G7 C Cm G

G Em G7 C Cm G

Em C F G
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’ll love you more.

Cm G D D7 G
In my life I’ll love you more.
