Hung Up

written by Madonna, Stuart Price, B. Anderson, and B. Ulvaeus
Track 1, Time: 5:36
-------------------------
Time goes by so slowly
(repeat 5 times)

Chorus:

Every little thing that you say or do
I'm hung up, I'm hung up on you
Waiting for your call, baby, night and day
I'm fed up, I'm tired of waiting on you

Time goes by so slowly for those who wait
No time to hesitate
Those who run seem to have all the fun
I'm caught up, I don't know what to do

Time goes by so slowly
Time goes by so slowly
Time goes by so slowly
I don't know what to do

(chorus, repeat)

Ring ring ring goes the telephone
The lights are on but there's no one home
Tick tick tock it's a quarter to two
And I'm done, I'm hanging up on you

I can't keep on waiting for you
I know that you're still hesitating
Don't cry for me 'cause I'll find my way
You'll wake up one day, but it'll be too late

(chorus, repeat)

Every little thing, every little thing
I'm hung up, I'm hung up on you
Waiting for your call, waiting for your call
I'm fed up, I'm tired of waiting on you

Time goes by so slowly
(repeat 3 times)

So slowly
(repeat 12 times)
So, I don't know what to do

(chorus, repeat)

Every little thing, every little thing
I'm hung up, I'm hung up on you
Waiting for your call, waiting for your call
I'm fed up, I'm tired of waiting on you
(fade out)



Get Together

written by Madonna, Anders Bagge, Peer Astrom, and Stuart Price
Track 2, Time: 5:30
-------------------------
There's too much confusion
It's all an illusion
There's too much confusion

Down, down, down in your heart
Find, find, find the secret
Turn, turn, turn your head around
Baby we can do it, we can do it all right

Do you believe in love at first sight
It's an illusion, I don't care
Do you believe I can make you feel better
Too much confusion, come on over here

Chorus:

Can we get together
I really, I really want to be with you
Come on, check it out with me
I hope you, I hope you feel the same way too

I searched, I searched, searched my whole life
To find, to find, find the secret
And all I did was open up my eyes
Baby we can do it, we can do it all right

Do you believe that we can change the future
Do you believe I can make you feel better

(chorus, repeat)

It's all an illusion
There's too much confusion
I'll make you feel better
If it's bitter at the start
Then it's sweeter in the end

Do you believe in love at first sight
It's an illusion, I don't care
Do you believe I can make you feel better
Too much confusion, come on over here

(chorus)

Chorus2:

Can we get together
I really want to be with you
Come on, check it out with me
I hope you feel the same way too

It's all an illusion
There's too much confusion
I'll make you feel better
If it's bitter at the start
Then it's sweeter in the end



Sorry

Lo siento (Spanish, "I'm sorry")
Ik ben droevig (Dutch, "I am sad")
Sono spiacente (Italian, "I am sorry")
Perdóname (Spanish, "Forgive me")

(fade in)
I've heard it all before
(repeat 12 times)

Chorus:

I don't wanna hear
I don't wanna know
Please don't say you're sorry
I heard it all before
And I can take care of myself
I don't wanna hear
I don't wanna know
Please don't say "forgive me"
I've seen it all before
And I can't take it anymore

You're not half the man you think you are
Save your words because you've gone too far
I listened to your lies and all your stories [I listened to your stories]
You're not half the man you'd like to be

(chorus)

Don't explain yourself 'cause talk is cheap
There's more important things than hearing you speak
You stayed because I made it so convenient [I made it so convenient]
Don't explain yourself, you'll never see

Gomen nasai (Japanese, "I am sorry")
Mujhe maph kardo (Hindi, "Please forgive me")
Przepraszam (Polish, "I'm sorry")
Slicha (Hebrew, "I'm sorry")

(chorus)

(begin chorus in background)
Don't explain yourself, 'cause talk is cheap
There's more important things than hearing you speak

(chorus continues in background:)
[I don't wanna hear]
[I don't wanna know]
[Please don't say "forgive me"]

I've heard it all before
(repeat 3 times)



Future Lovers

written by Madonna and Mirwais Ahmadzai
Track 4, Time: 4:51
-------------------------
(Spoken:)
I'm gonna tell you about love
Let's forget your life
Forget your problems
Administration, bills, and loans
Come with me

In the evidence of its brilliance
(repeat 3 times)

(Spoken:)
In the demonstration of this evidence
Some have called it religion
This is not a coincidence
Would you like to try

Connect to the sky
Future lovers ride there in mission style
Would you like to try
Let me be your guide
Put aside your pride
Future lovers hide love inside their eyes

In the evidence of its brilliance
(repeat 3 times)

Love controlled by time
Future lovers shine for eternity
In a world that's free
Put away your past
Love will never last
If you're holding on to a dream that's gone

(Spoken:)
I'm gonna tell you about love
Would you like to try

In the evidence of its brilliance
(repeat 3 times)

(Spoken:)
There's no love like the future love
Come with me

Connect to the sky
Future lovers ride there in mission style
Would you like to try

[In the evidence of its brilliance] (repeat in background)
Connect to the sky
Future lovers ride there in mission style
Would you like to try
(repeat)

Brilliance (repeat several times, fading)

In the evidence of its brilliance



I Love New York

written by Madonna and Stuart Price
Track 5, Time: 4:12
-------------------------
I don't like cities, but I like New York
Other places make me feel like a dork
Los Angeles is for people who sleep
Paris and London, baby you can keep

Baby you can keep
(repeat 7 times)

Chorus:

Other cities always make me mad
Other places always make me sad
No other city ever made me glad
Except New York
I love New York
I love New York
I love New York

If you don't like my attitude, then you can 'F' off
Just go to Texas, isn't that where they golf
New York is not for little pussies who scream
If you can't stand the heat then get off my street
Get off my street

Get off my street
You get off my street
(repeat 3 times)

(chorus)

I love New York [Get off my street, get off my street]
(repeat 3 times)

Get off my street
You get off my street
(repeat 3 times)



Let It Will Be

written by Madonna, Mirwais Ahmadzai, and Stuart Price
Track 6, Time: 4:19
-------------------------
Now I can tell you about success, about fame
About the rise and the fall of all the stars in the sky
Don't it make you smile
Let it will be
Just let it be
Won't you let it be

Now I can tell you about the place I belong
You know it won't last long
And all those lights they will turn down
Let it will be
Oh let it be
Just let it be
Won't you let it be

Now I can see things for what they really are
I guess I'm not that far
I'm at the point of no return
Just watch me burn

Let it will be
Just let it be
Oh let it be
Let it will be [Just let it be]
Just let it be [Let it will be]
Oh let it be [Got to let it be]
Oh let it be [Won't you let it be]

Now I can tell you the place that I belong
It won't last long
The lights, they will turn down

[Oh let it be]
[Oh let it be]
[Oh let it be]
Won't you let it be
[Oh let it be]
You got to let it be
[Just let it be]
Anyone can see
[Won't you let it be]
Let it will be

Just watch me burn
Oh let it be
Just let it be
Won't you let it be
Won't you let it be [Just let it be]
Oh let it be [Let it will be]
Just let it be [Got to let it be]
Won't you let it be [Won't you let it be]
Won't you let it be

Now I can tell you [Oh let it be]
Tell you, tell you, tell you, tell you [Just let it be]
About success, about fame [Won't you let it be]
About fame, about fame [Won't you let it be]
About fame, about fame

Oh let it be
Just let it be
Won't you let it be



Forbidden Love

written by Madonna and Stuart Price
Track 7, Time: 4:22
-------------------------
Just one kiss on my lips
Was all it took to seal the future
Just one look from your eyes
Was like a certain kind of torture

Once upon a time
There was a boy and there was a girl
Just one touch from your hands
Was all it took to make me falter

Chorus:

Forbidden love
Are we supposed to be together
Forbidden love, forbidden love
Forbidden love
We sealed our destiny forever
Forbidden love, forbidden love

Just one smile on your face
Was all it took to change my fortune
Just one word from your mouth
Was all I needed to be certain

Once upon a time
There was a boy and there was a girl
Hearts that intertwine
They lived in a different kind of world

(chorus)

Just one kiss [Five]
Just one touch [Four]
Just one look [Three]
[Two]
[One]

(chorus, repeat)

Just one kiss [Five]
Just one touch [Four]
Just one look [Three]
Just one love [Two]
[One]



Jump

written by Madonna, Joe Henry, and Stuart Price
Track 8, Time: 3:46
-------------------------
(Spoken:)
There's only so much you can learn in one place
The more that I wait, the more time that I waste

I haven't got much time to waste, it's time to make my way
I'm not afraid of what I'll face, but I'm afraid to stay
I'm going down my own road and I can make it alone
I'll work and I'll fight til I find a place of my own

Chorus:

Are you ready to jump
Get ready to jump
Don't ever look back, oh baby
Yes, I'm ready to jump
Just take my hands
Get ready to jump

We learned our lesson from the start, my sisters and me
The only thing you can depend on is your family
And life's gonna drop you down like the limbs of a tree
It sways and it swings and it bends until it makes you see

Chorus2:

Are you ready to jump
Get ready to jump
Don't ever look back, oh baby
Yes, I'm ready to jump
Just take my hands
Get ready to, are you ready

(Spoken:)
There's only so much you can learn in one place
The more that you wait, the more time that you waste

I'll work and I'll fight til I find a place of my own
It sways and it swings and it bends until you make it your own

I can make it alone
I can make it alone
I can make it alone [my sisters and me]
I can make it alone [my sisters and me]
(repeat)

(chorus)
(chorus2)



How High

written by Madonna, Christian Karlsson, Pontus Winnberg, and Henrik Jonback
Track 9, Time: 4:40
-------------------------
How high are the stakes
How much fortune can you make
How high are the stakes
How much fortune can you make

It's funny, I spent my whole life wanting to be talked about
I did it, just about everything to see my name in lights

Was it all worth it
And how did I earn it
Nobody's perfect
I guess I deserved it

Chorus:

How high are the stakes
How much fortune can you make
Does this get any better
Should I carry on
Will it matter when I'm gone
Will any of this matter

It's funny how everybody mentions my name but they're never very nice
I took it, just about everything except my own advice

Was it all worth it
And how did I earn it
Nobody's perfect
I guess I deserved it

Chorus2:

How high are the stakes
How much fortune can you make
[Nothing lasts forever]
Does this get any better
Should I carry on
Will it matter when I'm gone
[Does it make a difference]
Will any of this matter

How high, does it make a difference
Nothing lasts forever
Should I, will it matter when I'm gone
Will any of this matter

How high are the stakes
How much fortune can you make
Should I carry on
Will it matter when I'm gone

(chorus)

How high are the stakes [How high]
Does it make a difference
Nothing lasts forever
Does this get any better
Should I carry on [Should I]
Will it matter when I'm gone
Does it make a difference
Will any of this matter

How high are the stakes
How much fortune can you make
Should I carry on
Will it matter when I'm gone
(repeat)



Isaac

written by Madonna and Stuart Price
additional vocals by Yitzhak Sinwani
Track 10, Time: 6:04
-------------------------
(Chant:)

Im nin'alu
Dal thae na di vim
Dal thae na di vim
Dal thae ma rom
Im nin'alu (repeat 7 times)

Staring up into the heavens
In this hell that binds your hands
Will you sacrifice your comfort
Make your way in a foreign land

Wrestle with your darkness
Angels call your name
Can you hear what they are saying
Will you ever be the same

Chorus:

Mmmmmm
Im nin'alu, Im nin'alu
Mmmmmm
Im nin'alu, Im nin'alu

Remember, remember, never forget
All of your life has all been a test
You will find the gate that's open
Even though your spirit's broken

Open up my heart
And cause my lips to speak
Bring the heaven and the stars
Down to Earth for me

(Chants:)

Im nin'alu
Dal thae na di vim

(chorus, repeat)

(Chant:)

El hai
El hai maromam 'al karuvim
Kolam baruchu ya'alu

Wrestle with your darkness
Angels call your name
Can you hear what they are saying
Will you ever be the same

(chorus, repeat)

(Chant:)

El hai
El hai maromam 'al karuvim

(Spoken:)
The generous truly know
What will be given
Even if it does stop, you know
The gates of heaven are always open
And there's this God in the sky and the angels
How they sit, you know, in front of the light
And that's what it's about



Push

written by Madonna and Stuart Price
Track 11, Time: 3:57
-------------------------
You push me to go the extra mile
You push me when it's difficult to smile
You push me, a better version of myself
You push me, only you and no one else
You push me, see the other point of view
You push me when there's nothing else to do
You push me when I think I know it all
You push me when I stumble and I fall

Keep on pushing like nobody

Chorus:

Every race I win, every mood I'm in
Everything I do, I owe it all to you
Every move I make, every step I take
Everything I know, it's all because you push me

You push me when I don't appreciate
You push me not to lie and not to hate
You push me when I want it all to end
You push me when I really need a friend
You push me, all I wanna do is cry
You push me when it's hard for me to try
You push me, learn to do it for myself
You push me, only you and no one else

Keep on pushin' like nobody

(chorus, replacing "know" with "do")

You push me

Keep on pushing like nobody
Keep on, keep on

Every race I win [To go the extra mile]
Every mood I'm in [When it's difficult to smile]
Everything I do [A better version of myself]
[Only you and only you and only you]
Every move I make [To see the other point of view]
Every step I take [When there's nothing else to do]
Everything I do [When I think I know it all]
[Only you and only you and only you]

Every race I win [To go the extra mile]
Every mood that I'm in [When it's difficult to smile]
Everything that I do [A better version of myself]
I owe it all to you [Only you and only you and only you]
Every move I make [To see the other point of view]
Every step I take [When there's nothing else to do]
Everything I know [When I think I know it all]
It's all because you push me

You push me



Like It Or Not

written by Madonna, Christian Karlsson, Pontus Winnberg, and Henrik Jonback
Track 12, Time: 4:32
-------------------------
You can call me a sinner
Or you can call me a saint
Celebrate me for who I am
Dislike me for what I ain't
Put me up on a pedestal
Or drag me down in the dirt
Sticks and stones will break my bones
But your names will never hurt

I'll be the garden, you'll be the snake
All of my fruit is yours to take
Better the devil that you know
Your love for me will grow
Because

Chorus:

This is who I am
You can like it or not
You can love me or leave me
'Cause I'm never gonna stop
No no
You know (all except first time)

Cleopatra had her way
Matahari too
Whether they were good or bad
Is strictly up to you

Life is a paradox
And it doesn't make much sense
Can't have the "femme" without the "fatale"
Please don't take offense

Don't let the fruit rot under the vine
Fill up your cup and let's drink the wine
Better the devil that you know
Your love for me will grow
Because

(chorus, repeat)

No no, you know
(repeat 3 times)

I'll be the garden, you'll be the snake
All of my fruit is yours to take
Better the devil that you know
Your love for me will grow
Because

(chorus, repeat)

No no, you know
(repeat 3 times)



Fighting Spirit

(bonus track)
written by Madonna
Track 13, Time: 3:32
-------------------------
What you gonna do when your love is gone
Who you gonna play when the game has ended
Where you gonna go when the bird has flown
How you gonna play when you're all alone

Chorus:

Keep the fighting spirit of love
Keep the fighting spirit of love

What you gonna do when you're on your own
What you gonna have when you got no place to call your own
What you gonna try when your cover's blown
How you gonna fly when your wings are broken

(chorus)

Keep the fighting spirit of love

Don't let it get you down
Keep the fighting spirit and turn your head around
Don't let it take you in
Keep the fighting spirit and you'll begin again

(chorus, repeat)

If I was an animal I'd be a lion
If I was a car I'd be an Aston Martin

If I was a hero I'd be Martin Luther

Chorus:

If you want to reach the top [reach the top]
If you do you'll never stop [never stop]

[The top]

If I was an actor I'd be Marlon Brando [the top]
If I was a painter I'd be Frida Kahlo [the top]
If I was a drink I'd be a Lemon Drop [the top]
If I was a song I would be Super Pop

(chorus, repeat)

[The top]

If I was a star I would be who I am today
If I was a fighter I'd be Cassius Clay
If I was emotion I would be intense
If I was a man I would be president

I'll be different if I'm the president
I'll be different if I'm the president

Ooo, yeah
Ooo, yeah
Ooo, yeah

If I was an animal I'd be a dog
If I was a dog I would be a man
If I was a man I'd be the president
If I was a president I'd be different

(chorus, repeat)

[The top]

If you want to reach the top
You would start it and never stop [never stop]
[The top]
If you want to reach the top
You would start it and never stop [never stop]

Chorus:

Why are we separated
Defined by our greed and hatred
Why aren't we all united
I'm so sick and tired of fighting
Why aren't we all together
Let's end this fight forever
Why are we still divided
I'm so sick and tired of fighting

How many tragedies
Will we see before we come together, uh huh
It's easy to forget
We have the power to make things better, uh huh

I have a dream
But dreams are not for free
We all need to change
Or just repeat history

And there's no one else around
You get on your feet
Until you hear the funky beat

Crying, lying, dying
Cheating, fighting, hating
Killing, taking, breaking
Fighting, killing, hating
