Angel Eyes

Ah-ha-ha, ah-aaaah
Ah-ha-ha, ah-aaaah
Ah-ha-ha, keep thinking 'bout his angel eyes
I keep thinking, a-aaah

Last night I was taking a walk along the river
And I saw him together with a young girl
And the look that he gave made me shiver
Cause he always used to look at me that way
And I thought maybe I should walk right up to her and say
Ah-ha-ha, it's a game he likes to play

Look into his angel eyes
One look and you're hypnotized
He'll take your heart and you must pay the price
Look into his angel eyes
You'll think you're in paradise
And one day you'll find out he wears a disguise
Don't look too deep into those angel eyes
Oh no no no no

Ah-ha-ha, ah-aaaah
Ah-ha-ha, ah-aaaah
Ah-ha-ha, keep thinking 'bout his angel eyes
I keep thinking, a-aaah

Sometimes when I'm lonely I sit and think about him
And it hurts to remember all the good times
When I thought I could never live without him
And I wonder does it have to be the same
Every time when I see him, will it bring back the pain?
Ah-ha-ha, how can I forget that name?

Look into his angel eyes
One look and you're hypnotized
He'll take your heart and you must pay the price
Look into his angel eyes
You'll think you're in paradise
And one day you'll find out he wears a disguise
Don't look too deep into his angel eyes
Crazy 'bout his angel eyes
Angel eyes
Once he took my heart and now I pay the price
Look into his angel eyes
You'll think you're in paradise
And one day you'll find out he wears a disguise
Don't look too deep into those angel eyes
Oh no no no no

Ah-ha-ha, ah-aaaah
Ah-ha-ha, ah-aaaah

Ah-ha-ha, keep thinking, ah-aaaah
Keep thinking 'bout his angeleyes
Ah-ha-ha, keep thinking, ah-aaaah
Keep thinking, I had to pay the price

(repeat & fade)

 

Another Town, Another Train

Day is dawning and I must go
Youre asleep but still Im sure youll know
Why it had to end this way
You and I had a groovy time
But I told you somewhere down the line
You would have to find me gone
I just have to move along

Just another town, another train
Waiting in the morning rain
Look in my restless soul, a little patience
Just another town, another train
Nothing lost and nothing gained
Guess I will spend my life in railway stations
Guess I will spend my life in railway stations

When you wake I know youll cry
And the words I wrote to say goodbye
They wont comfort you at all
But in time you will understand
That the dreams we dreamed were made of sand
For a no-good bum like me
To live is to be free

Just another town, another train
Waiting in the morning rain
Look in my restless soul, a little patience
Just another town, another train
Nothing lost and nothing gained
Guess I will spend my life in railway stations
Guess I will spend my life in railway stations

 

As Good As New

Ill never know why I had to go
Why I had to put up such a lousy rotten show
Boy, I was tough, packing all my stuff
Saying I dont need you anymore, Ive had enough
And now, look at me standing here again cause I found out that
Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma my life is here
Gotta have you near

As good as new, my love for you
And keeping it that way is my intention
As good as new and growing too
Yes, I think its taking on a new dimension
Its as good as new, my love for you
Just like it used to be and even better
As good as new, thank God its true
Darling, we were always meant to stay together

Feel like a creep, never felt so cheap
Never had a notion that my love could be so deep
How could I make such a dumb mistake
Now I know Im not entitled to another break
But please, baby, I beg you to forgive cause I found out that
Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma my life is here
Gotta get you near

As good as new, my love for you
And keeping it that way is my intention
As good as new and growing too
Yes, I think its taking on a new dimension
Its as good as new, my love for you
Just like it used to be and even better
As good as new, thank God its true
Darling, we were always meant to stay together

I thought that our love was at an end but here I am again

As good as new, my love for you
And keeping it that way is my intention
As good as new and growing too
Yes, I think its taking on a new dimension
Its as good as new, my love for you
Just like it used to be and even better
As good as new, thank God its true
Darling, we were always meant to stay together

Yes the love I have for you feels as good as new
Darling, we were always meant to stay together

Baby

Baby
You can do magic
Baby
Isnt it tragic
Maybe
You can do something I cant
And I cant get enough of it

Baby
You can do wonders
Maybe
You can do something I cant
So dont stop doing it
Dont stop doing it

Baby
You can do wonders

 

Bang

Making somebody happy is a question of give and take
You can learn how to show it so come on, give yourself a break
Every smile and every little touch
Don't you know that they mean so much
Sweet sweet kisses so tender
Always will return to sender

Like a bang, a boom-a-boomerang
Dum-be-dum-dum be-dum-be-dum-dum
Oh bang, a boom-a-boomerang
Love is a tune you hum-de-hum-hum
So give it away, I think you'll learn
You'll get love in return
So bang, a boom-a-boomerang is love
A boom-a-boomerang is love

Love is always around and you can look for it anywhere
When you feel that you've found it my advice is to take good care
Never use it as a selfish tool
Never ever be such a fool
Every feeling you're showing
Is a boomerang you're throwing

Yes a bang, a boom-a-boomerang
Dum-be-dum-dum be-dum-be-dum-dum
Oh bang, a boom-a-boomerang
Love is a tune you hum-de-hum-hum
So give it away, I think you'll learn
You'll get love in return
So bang, a boom-a-boomerang is love

And if you're warm and tender
I'll kiss you, return to sender
Please surrender

Bang, a boom-a-boomerang
Dum-be-dum-dum be-dum-be-dum-dum
Oh bang, a boom-a-boomerang is love
A boom-a-boomerang is love

Cassandra

Down in the street they're all singing and shouting
Staying alive though the city is dead
Hiding their shame behind hollow laughter
while you are crying alone on your bed
Pity, Cassandra that no one believed you
But then again you were lost from the start
Now we must suffer and sell our secrets
Bargain, playing smart, aching in our hearts
Sorry Cassandra I misunderstood
now the last day is dawning
Some of us wanted but none of us would
listen to words of warning
But on the darkest of nights
nobody knew how to fight
and we were caught in our sleep
Sorry Cassandra I didn't believe you really had the power
I only saw it as dreams you would weave
Until the final hour
So in the morning your ship will be sailing
Now that your father and sister are gone
there is no reason for you linger
You're grieving deeply but still moving on
You know the future is casting a shadow
No one else sees it, but you know your fate
Packing your bags, being slow and thorough
Knowing though you're late that ship is sure to wait
Sorry Cassandra I misunderstood
now the last day is dawning
Some of us wanted but none of us would
listen to words of warning
But on the darkest of nights
Nobody knew how to fight
And we were caught in out sleep
Sorry Cassandra I didn't believe you really had the power
I only saw it as dreams you would weave
Until the final hour
I watched her ship leaving harbor at sunrise
sails almost slack in the cool morning rain
She stood on deck, just a tiny figure
Rigid and restrained, blue eyes filled with pain
Sorry Cassandra I misunderstood
now the last day is dawning
Some of us wanted but none of us would
listen to words of warning
But on the darkest of nights
Nobody knew how to fight
And we were caught in out sleep
Sorry Cassandra I didn't believe you really had the power
I only saw it as dreams you would weave
Until the final hour
(I'm sorry Cassandra)

 

Chiquitita

Chiquitita, tell me whats wrong
Youre enchained by your own sorrow
In your eyes there is no hope for tomorrow
How I hate to see you like this
There is no way you can deny it
I can see that youre oh so sad, so quiet

Chiquitita, tell me the truth
Im a shoulder you can cry on
Your best friend, Im the one you must rely on
You were always sure of yourself
Now I see youve broken a feather
I hope we can patch it up together

Chiquitita, you and I know
How the heartaches come and they go and the scars theyre leaving
Youll be dancing once again and the pain will end
You will have no time for grieving
Chiquitita, you and I cry
But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you
Let me hear you sing once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, chiquitita

So the walls came tumbling down
And your loves a blown out candle
All is gone and it seems too hard to handle
Chiquitita, tell me the truth
There is no way you can deny it
I see that youre oh so sad, so quiet

Chiquitita, you and I know
How the heartaches come and they go and the scars theyre leaving
Youll be dancing once again and the pain will end
You will have no time for grieving
Chiquitita, you and I cry
But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you
Let me hear you sing once more like you did before
Sing a new song, chiquitita
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, chiquitita
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, chiquitita

 

Crazy World

 

I was out for the morning sun

Couldnt sleep so I thought Id take a walk

I was thinking of you and me

And I went to your house cos I had to talk

I could hardly believe my eyes

When I saw this guy closing your front door

Had a feeling of emptiness

Like Ive never had before

 

And I close my eyes

Will you leave me, girl?

And I realize

Its a crazy world

 

As he disappeared in his car

I was stunned and I didnt know what to do

Everything I had ever been

Everything in my lifes a part of you

And I just couldnt move my feet

So I stood on the pavement as you came out

You acted as you didnt know

What it was all about

 

And I close my eyes

Will you leave me, girl?

And I realize

Its a crazy world

 

Baby how could you do it?

You just told me lies

Had you been behind my back with other guys?

Baby how could you tell me?

There was only me

I was stupid to believe you

I was blind but now I see

 

Then you smiled and you took my hand

There is something, you said, that you may not know,

There are a couple of men in my life,

And one of them is my brother Joe.

Hes been gone for a long, long time

But hes back and I think hes gonna stay,

Youll be seeing a lot of him

Hes so nice in every way.

 

And I close my eyes

Never leave me, girl

And I realize

Its a crazy world

So I close my eyes

Never leave me, girl

Then I realize

Its a crazy world

 

Crying Over You

 

I'm waitin' for you, baby

I'm sitting all alone

I feel so cold without you

It chills me to the bone

I never thought you'd leave me

But now I know it's true

Oh Lord I'm blue

I'm cryin' over you

I'm waitin' for you baby

I'm sittin' all alone

I feel so cold without you

It chills me to the bone

I never thought you'd leave me

But now I know it's true

Oh Lord I'm blue

I'm cryin' over you

 

Cryin' over you

I'm cryin' over you

Cryin' over

Little memories of things we used to do

Oh Lord I'm blue

I'm cryin' over you

Oh Lord I'm blue

I'm cryin' over you

Oh Lord I'm blue

I'm cryin' over you

Dance

 

Oh, my love it makes me sad.

Why did things turn out so bad?

Was it just a dream, everything we did,

everything we had?

 

Baby, give me one more dance

While the music still goes on

Dont think about tomorrow

Dance and forget our time is gone

Tonights a night we borrow.

Lets make it a memory,

a night of our own

A thing to remember

 when were all alone

So dance,

 its our way to say goodbye

Yes, all we have to do is dance

While the music still goes on

This is no time for crying

Dance,

 dont you hear them play our song

God knows that weve been trying

But we didnt make it

cause nothings the same

We just couldnt help it,

nobodys to blame

So dance

 while the music still goes on

And let it be our last goodbye

 

Yet it seems to make me sad.

Why did things turn out so bad?

Was it just a dream,

 everything we did,

 everything we had?

 

Baby, give me one last Dance

While the music still goes on

Just like the night I met you

Dance

 and believe me, when youre gone

You know I wont forget you

Our love was a snowbird,

its flying away

You tell me its over,

what more can I say?

So dance

 while the music still goes on

Its gonna be our last goodbye

 

Dance

 while the music still goes on

Dont think about tomorrow

Dance

 and forget our time is gone

Tonights a night we borrow.

Lets make it a memory,

 a night of our own

A thing to remember

when were all alone

So dance

while the music still goes on

And let it be our last goodbye

 

Dance

 while the music still goes on

This is no time for crying

Dance,

dont you hear them play our song

God knows that weve been trying

Dance

 while the music still goes on

Just like the night I met you

Dance

 and believe me, when youre gone

You know I wont forget you

Dancing Queen

 

You can dance,

 you can jive,

having the time of your life

See that girl,

 watch that scene,

dig in the dancing queen

 

Friday night

 and the lights are low

Looking out

 for the place to go

Where they play the right music,

 getting in the swing

You come in to look for a king

Anybody could be that guy

Night is young

 and the musics high

With a bit of rock music,

everything is fine

Youre in the mood for a dance

And when you get the chance...

 

You are the dancing queen,

 young and sweet, only seventeen

Dancing queen,

feel the beat from the tambourine

You can dance, you can jive,

having the time of your life

See that girl,

watch that scene,

 dig in the dancing queen

 

Youre a teaser, you turn em on

Leave them burning and then youre gone

Looking out for another,

 anyone will do

Youre in the mood for a dance

And when you get the chance...

 

You are the dancing queen,

 young and sweet, only seventeen

Dancing queen,

feel the beat from the tambourine

You can dance; you can jive,

having the time of your life

See that girl, watch that scene,

 dig in the dancing queen

 

Disillusion

 

Changing, moving, in a circle

I can see your face in all of my dreams

Smiling, laughing, from the shadows

When I hear your voice

 I know what it means

I know it doesnt matter

 just how hard I try

Youre all the reason for my life

Disillusion, disillusions all

you left for me

 

How can I forget you

when my world is breaking down?

Youre all I had, youre all I want

Disillusion, disillusions now,

 thats all I have

 

Wishing, hoping, chasing shadows

Did I see your face

 somewhere in the crowd

Thinking, wondering, what youre doing

I can stop myself

from crying out loud

They say my wound will heal

 and only leave a scar

But then, theyd never shared our love

Disillusion, disillusions all

 you left for me

 

How can I forget you

 when my world is breaking down?

Youre all I had, youre all I want

Disillusion, disillusions now,

 thats all I have

Disillusion, disillusions now,

 thats all I have

 

Dream World

 

Were not the stars of a hollywood movie

So whats the use to pretend

Im not so charming and youre not so groovy

Youve gotta face it my friend

 

Dream world

Youve been living in a dream world

Trust me

You just cant escape from reality

Boy meets girl

Doesnt mean theyre in a dream world

Here I am, there you are, weve gotta make it together

And weve made, it so far, so it can only get better

 

When you reach out

And you say to me how I love you girl

When I hold you

Baby cant you see

Its a real dream world

 

You had your hopes and your high expectations

Somehow it doesnt seem right

Im getting fed up with your accusations

Im not your angel in white

 

Dream world

Youve been living in a dream world

Trust me

You just cant escape from reality

Boy meets girl

Doesnt mean theyre in a dream world

Here I am, there you are, we gotta make it together

And weve made, it so far, so it can only get better

 

When you reach out

And you say to me how I love you girl

When I hold you

Baby cant you see

Its a real dream world

Boy meets girl

Doesnt mean theyre in a dream world

Here I am, there you are, we gotta make it together

And weve made, it so far, so it can only get better

 

Dum Dum Diddle

 

I can hear how you work, practising hard

Playing night and day, woah-oh

And it sounds better now

Yes, you improve every time you play, woah-oh

But its bad

Youre so sad

And youre only smiling

When you play your violin

 

Dum-dum-diddle, to be your fiddle

To be so near you and not just hear you

Dum-dum-diddle, to be your fiddle

I think then maybe youd see me, baby

Youd be mine

And wed be together all the time

Wish I was, dum-dum-diddle, your darling fiddle

 

But I think you dont know that I exist

Im the quiet kind, woah-oh

From the day when I first listened to you

Youve been on my mind, woah-oh

You dont care

Its not fair

And youre only smiling

When you play your violin

 

Dum-dum-diddle, to be your fiddle

To be so near you and not just hear you

Dum-dum-diddle, to be your fiddle

I think then maybe youd see me, baby

Youd be mine

And wed be together all the time

Dum-dum-diddle, to be your fiddle

To be so near you and not just hear you

Dum-dum-diddle, to be your fiddle

I think then maybe youd see me, baby

Youd be mine

And wed be together all the time

Wish I was, dum-dum-diddle, your darling fiddle

Eagle

 

They came, flying from far away,

now Im under their spell

I love hearing the stories that they tell

Theyve seen places beyond my land

and theyve found new horizons

They speak strangely but I understand

And I dream Im an eagle

And I dream I can spread my wings

 

Flying high, high, Im a bird in the sky

Im an eagle that rides on the breeze

High, high, what a feeling to fly

Over mountains and forests and seas

And to go anywhere that I please

 

As all good friends we talk all night,

 and we fly wing to wing

I have questions

 and they know everything

Theres no limit to what I feel,

 we climb higher and higher

Am I dreaming or is it all real?

Is it true Im an eagle?

Is it true I can spread my wings?

 

Flying high, high,

Im a bird in the sky (Im an eagle)

Im an eagle that rides on the breeze

High, high,

 what a feeling to fly (what a feeling)

Over mountains and forests and seas

And to go anywhere that I please

 

And I dream Im an eagle

And I dream I can spread my wings

 

Flying high, high,

 Im a bird in the sky

(Im an eagle)

Im an eagle that rides on the breeze

High, high,

what a feeling to fly (what a feeling)

Over mountains and forests and seas

High, high,

 Im a bird in the sky (Im an eagle)

Im an eagle that rides on the breeze

High, high,

what a feeling to fly (what a feeling)

Over mountains and forests and seas

And to go anywhere that I please

 

Elaine

 

You hate, you scream, you swear

And still you never reach him

You curse, you try to scare

But you can never teach him

Its a dead end street

They tie your hands and tie your feet

And the street is narrow

A nowhere lane

A nowhere train for elaine, elaine, elaine

 

Elaine, elaine, elaine

You know theyre gonna get you

You try to break away

But they will never let you

Its a dead end street

They tie your hands and tie your feet

And the street is narrow

A nowhere lane

A nowhere train for elaine, elaine, elaine

Youre like a goldfish in a bowl

Elaine, elaine, elaine

They have your mind, theyll take your soul

 

You come, you stay, you go

It really doesnt matter

Youve done it all before

By now theyll know the pattern

Its a dead end street

They tie your hands and tie your feet

And the street is narrow

A nowhere lane

A nowhere train for elaine, elaine, elaine

Youre like a goldfish in a bowl

Elaine, elaine, elaine

They have your mind, theyll take your soul

Now that youre gone, you know theyre gonna get you

Now that youre gone, you know theyll never let you

 

Its a dead end street

Fernando

 

Can you hear the drums Fernando?

I remember long ago another starry night like this

In the firelight Fernando

You were humming to yourself and softly strumming your guitar

I could hear the distant drums

And sounds of bugle calls were coming from afar

 

They were closer now Fernando

Every hour every minute seemed to last eternally

I was so afraid Fernando

We were young and full of life and none of us prepared to die

And Im not ashamed to say

The roar of guns and cannons almost made me cry

 

There was something in the air that night

The stars were bright, Fernando

They were shining there for you and me

For liberty, Fernando

Though I never thought that we could lose

Theres no regret

If I had to do the same again

I would, my friend, Fernando

 

Now were old and grey Fernando

And since many years I havent seen a rifle in your hand

Can you hear the drums Fernando?

Do you still recall the frightful night we crossed the Rio Grande?

I can see it in your eyes

How proud you were to fight for freedom in this land

 

There was something in the air that night

The stars were bright, Fernando

They were shining there for you and me

For liberty, Fernando

Though I never thought that we could lose

Theres no regret

If I had to do the same again

I would, my friend, Fernando

 

There was something in the air that night

The stars were bright, Fernando

They were shining there for you and me

For liberty, Fernando

Though I never thought that we could lose

Theres no regret

If I had to do the same again

I would, my friend, Fernando

Yes, if I had to do the same again

I would, my friend, Fernando...

 

Free as a Bumble Bee

 

Im down and I feel depressed

Sitting here just waiting

For next bus travelling

Downtown

Its a crying shame

Isnt it

The beautiful weather

If I could have my way

Well, I would not be working

On a day like this I know what Id like to be

As free as a bumble bee

Take a sip from

Every flower

Free as a bumble bee

While away each lazy hour

What a good life

Lying laid back

Like an old railroad bum by the track

What a good life

Living outdoors

Lie in the grass and chew on a straw

 

                                                G            

 

Gimme Gimme Gimme

 

Half past twelve

And I'm watching the late show in my flat all alone

How I hate to spend the evening on my own

Autumn winds

Blowing outside the window as I look around the room

And it makes me so depressed to see the phone

There's not a soul out there

No one to hear my prayer

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight

Won't somebody help me chase these shadows away

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight

Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

Movie stars

Find the end of the rainbow, with that fortune to win

It's so different from the world I'm living in

Tired of T.V.

I open the window and I gaze into the night

But there's nothing there to see, no one in sight

There's not a soul out there

No one to hear my prayer

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight

Won't somebody help me chase these shadows away

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight

Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight...

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight...

There's not a soul out there

No one to hear my prayer

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight

Won't somebody help me chase these shadows away

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight

Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight

Won't somebody help me chase these shadows away

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight

Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

 

Givin a Little Bit More

 

Theres a gentleness to everything you do

And its rubbing off on me I feel it too

Ive been waiting but my loneliness I get

When you call me on the phone

And Im feeling so alone

When you ask me to come over

Baby you know I will

Im always givin a little more

When Im with you

Givin it all I got to give

     Hamlet III

 

When the autumn leaves are falling to the ground

When the air gets cold then I think of us

Of you and I

And it almost makes me cry

So sad and kind of bitter sweet

And the memories filled with tears

And I feel my heart will break

Guess it all was my mistake

 

Autumn's chilly winds were blowing through the trees

The rain fell softly on your face

Oh I remember every little thing about that day

I remember every place

Grey skies, you were laughing at the clouds

The rain fell softly on your face

The memories of our time together cannot be replaced

I never loved you more than on those happy autumn days

 

Happy Hawaii

 

Early this morning I drove in the rain

Out to the airport to get on the plane

Hey Honolulu, we're going to happy Hawaii

Alice has been there, she said it was fun

Swimming and surfing, enjoying the sun

Hey Honolulu, we're going to happy Hawaii

After all I've had to go through

I'm making no plans (making no plans oh-ooh)

But I, but I believe love gives me a second chance

Guess I've been working a little too hard

Need a vacation, I'll send you a card

From Honolulu, a greeting from happy Hawaii

It's so exciting, why should I pretend

In a few hours the plane will descend

Hey Honolulu, we're going to happy Hawaii

I can imagine the beach and the sand

Walking with someone and holding his hand

Hey Honolulu, we're going to happy Hawaii

After all I've had to go through

I'm making no plans (making no plans oh-ooh)

But I, but I believe love gives me a second chance, mmm

I've got a feeling the dream will come true

Somebody's waiting and I'll forget you

Hey Honolulu, we're going to happy Hawaii

 

Happy New Year

 

No more champagne

And the fireworks are through

Here we are me and you

Feeling lost and feeling blue

Its the end of the party

And the morning seems so grey

So unlike yesterday

Nows the time for us to say...

 

Happy new year

Happy new year

May we all have a vision now and then

Of a world where every neighbor is a friend

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

May we all have our hopes, our will to try

If we dont we might as well lay down and die

You and I

 

Sometimes I see

How the brave new world arrives

And I see how it thrives

In the ashes of our lives

Oh yes, man is a fool

And he thinks hell be okay

Dragging on, feet of clay

Never knowing hes astray

Keeps on going anyway...

 

Happy new year

Happy new year

May we all have a vision now and then

Of a world where every neighbour is a friend

Happy new year

Happy new year

May we all have our hopes, our will to try

If we dont we might as well lay down and die

You and I

 

Seems to me now

That the dreams we had before

Are all dead, nothing more

Than confetti on the floor

Its the end of a decade

In another ten years time

Who can say what well find

What lies waiting down the line

In the end of eighty-nine...

 

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

May we all have a vision now and then

Of a world where every neighbour is a friend

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

May we all have our hopes, our will to try

If we dont we might as well lay down and die

You and I

 

Hasta Manana

 

Where is the spring and the summer?

That once was yours and mine?

Where did it go?

I just dont know

But still my love for you will live forever

 

Hasta manana til we meet again

Dont know where, dont know when

Darling, our love was much too strong to die

Well find a way to face a new tomorrow

Hasta manana, say well meet again

I cant do without you

Time to forget, send me a letter

Say you forgive, the sooner the better

Hasta manana, baby, hasta manana, until then

 

Where is the dream we were dreaming

And all the nights we shared

Where did they go?

I just dont know

And I cant tell you just how much I miss you

 

Hasta manana til we meet again

Dont know where, dont know when

Darling, our love was much too strong to die

Well find a way to face a new tomorrow

Hasta manana, say well meet again

I cant do without you

Time to forget, send me a letter

Say you forgive, the sooner the better

Hasta manana, baby, hasta manana, until then

 

Hasta manana, say well meet again

I cant do without you

Time to forget, send me a letter

Say you forgive, the sooner the better

Hasta manana, baby, hasta manana, until then

 

He is Your Brother

 

I was a fighter always looking for trouble

And my life was so empty, there was nothing left to live for

But then it happened one night as I got into a fight

I could hear someone saying as though he was praying

Ah-a-ah-a-a-a-ah-ah

 

Treat him well, he is your brother

You might need his help some day

We depend on one another

Love him, thats the only way

On the road (on the road) that were going

We all need (we all need) words of comfort and compassion

Treat him well, he is your brother

Love him, thats the only way

 

I was a woman never thinking of others

And my life was so lonely, didnt care for anybody

But then I happened to meet a begging man in the street

As I turned down his praying I heard someone saying

Ah-a-ah-a-a-a-ah-ah

 

Treat him well, he is your brother (brother)

You might need his help one day (hes your brother)

We depend on one another (brother)

Love him, thats the only way

On the road (on the road) that were going (that were going)

We all need (we all need) words of comfort and compassion

Treat him well, he is your brother (brother)

Love him, thats the only way.

 

Treat him well, he is your brother (brother)

You might need his help one day (hes your brother)

We depend on one another (brother)

Love him, thats the only way

 

Head over Heels

 

I have a very good friend

 

The kind of girl who likes to follow a trend

She has a personal style

Some people like it, others tend to go wild

You hear her voice everywhere

Taking the chair

Shes a leading lady

And with no trace of hesitation she keeps going

 

Head over heels

Breaking her way

Pushing through unknown jungles every day

Shes a girl with a taste for the world

(the world is like a playing-ground where she goes rushing)

Head over heels

Setting the pace

Running the gauntlet in a whirl of lace

Shes extreme, if you know what I mean

 

Her man is one I admire

Hes so courageous but hes constantly tired

Each time when he speaks his mind

She pats his head and says, "thats all very fine

Exert that will of your own

When youre alone

Now wed better hurry"

And with no trace of hesitation she keeps going

 

Head over heels

Breaking her way

Pushing through unknown jungles every day

Shes a girl with a taste for the world

(The world is like a playing-ground where she goes rushing)

Head over heels

Setting the pace

Running the gauntlet in a whirl of lace

Shes extreme, if you know what I mean

 

You hear her voice everywhere

Taking the chair

Shes a leading lady

And with no trace of hesitation she keeps going

 

Head over heels

Breaking her way

Pushing through unknown jungles every day

Shes a girl with a taste for the world

(the world is like a playing-ground where she goes rushing)

Head over heels

Setting the pace

Running the gauntlet in a whirl of lace

Shes extreme, if you know what I mean

(shes just one of those who always has to do whatever she please)

And she goes

Head over heels

Here Comes Rubie Jamie

 

Some people long for Berlin and Barcelona

They yearn for Paris, Madrid and Rome

And I know some who prefer Arizona

And some prefer home

There's only me who is dying to see

 

Hey, hey Helen

 

So at last youre free

Its the way you wanted it to be

And the price you pay

To become a woman of today

Is it worth the pain to see the children cry?

Does it hurt when they ask for daddy?

 

Hey hey Helen

Now you live on your own

Hey hey Helen

Can you make it alone

(yes you can)

 

So youre free at last

And beginning to forget the past

Does it make you sad?

When you think about the life you ha-ha-had

But youre right, you had to take a second chance

So you fight to find your freedom

 

 

Hole in Your Soul

 

You feel bad, let me tell you, we all get the blues

Sometimes life is a burden, way down in your shoes

When its bad, worse, worst

(and when youre feeling so bad)

And you think youre cursed

(And youve got it sad)

Well, if theres one thing for the better that can turn you loose

 

Its gotta be rockn roll

To fill the hole in your soul

Theres gotta be rockn roll

To fill the hole in your soul

 

My friend Sam is a chauffeur, Annie goes to school

Jerry works at the office, Sue lies by the pool

But on all weekends

(Together again)

When I meet my friends

(Im gonna see them now)

And were lookin round for the action we sure play it cool

 

Its gotta be rockn roll

To fill the hole in your soul

Theres gotta be rockn roll

To fill the hole in your soul

 

Ah-haa (ah-haa, ah-haa)

You paint your world and use all colours

Ah-haa (ah-haa)

And then you find it all comes out too bright

You know its only a lie

Ah-haa (ah-haa, ah-haa)

The songs you sing are too romantic

Ah-haa (ah-haa)

And when you want the truth

They only spit in your eye

Oh yeah, theyre only telling you lies

Oh yeah, theres gotta be rockn roll

To fill the hole in your soul

 

You feel bad, let me tell you, we all get the blues

Sometimes life is a burden, weighed down in your shoes

When its bad, worse, worst

(You know youre feeling so bad)

And you think youre cursed

(And youve got it sad)

Well, if theres one thing for the better that can turn you loose

 

Its gotta be rockn roll

To fill the hole in your soul

Theres gotta be rockn roll

To fill the hole in your soul

 

Theres gotta be rockn roll...

To fill the hole in your soul

Theres gotta be rockn roll...

To fill the hole in your soul

Theres gotta be rockn roll...

To fill the hole in your soul

Theres gotta be rockn roll...

To fill the hole in your soul

Theres gotta be rockn roll...

To fill the hole in your soul

 

Honey Honey

 

Honey honey, how you thrill me, ah-hah, honey honey

Honey honey, nearly kill me, ah-hah, honey honey

I'd heard about you before

I wanted to know some more

And now I know what they mean, you're a love machine

Oh, you make me dizzy

 

Honey honey, let me feel it, ah-hah, honey honey

Honey honey, don't conceal it, ah-hah, honey honey

The way that you kiss goodnight

(The way that you kiss me goodnight)

The way that you hold me tight

(The way that you're holding me tight)

I feel like I wanna sing when you do your thing

 

I don't wanna hurt you, baby, I don't wanna see you cry

So stay on the ground, girl, you better not get too high

But I'm gonna stick to you, boy, you'll never get rid of me

There's no other place in this world where I rather would be

 

Honey honey, touch me, baby, ah-hah, honey honey

Honey honey, hold me, baby, ah-hah, honey honey

You look like a movie star

(You look like a movie star)

But I know just who you are

(I know just who you are)

And, honey, to say the least, you're a dog-gone beast

 

So stay on the ground, girl, you better not get too high

There's no other place in this world where I rather would be

 

Honey honey, how you thrill me, ah-hah, honey honey

Honey honey, nearly kill me, ah-hah, honey honey

I heard about you before

I wanted to know some more

And now I know what they mean, you're a love machine

 

                                                               I                       

 

I Am a Marionette

 

"You're so free", that's what everybody's telling me

Yet I feel I'm like an outward-bound, pushed around, refugee

Something's wrong, got a feeling that I don't belong

As if I had come from outer space, out of place, like King Kong

 

I'm a marionette, just a marionette, pull the string

I'm a marionette, everybody's pet, just as long as I sing

I'm a marionette, see my pirouette, round and round

I'm a marionette, I'm a marionette, just a silly old clown

 

Like a doll, like a puppet with no will at all

And somebody told me how to talk, how to walk, how to fall

 

Can't complain, I've got no-one but myself to blame

Something's happening I can't control, lost my hold, is it safe?

 

I'm a marionette, just a marionette, pull the string

I'm a marionette, everybody's pet, just as long as I sing

I'm a marionette, see my pirouette, round and round

I'm a marionette, I'm a marionette, just a silly old clown

 

"Look this way, just a little smile", is what they say

"You look better on the photograph if you laugh, that's okay"

 

I'm a marionette, just a marionette, pull the string

I'm a marionette, everybody's pet, just as long as I sing

I'm a marionette, see my pirouette, round and round

I'm a marionette, I'm a marionette, just a silly old clown

 

"You're so free", that's what everybody's telling me

Yet I feel I'm like an outward-bound, pushed around, refugee

  

 I Am Just a Girl

 

I am just a girl, one among the others, nothing much to say

Plain and simple girl, not a special type in any way

Just one look and you will surely see

That the truth is nobody is me

Its an evil world that has only made me a girl

 

I am just a girl, not the kind of woman men would like to meet

Just another girl no-one ever looks at in the street

But today, I cant believe its true

When you smiled and whispered "i love you"

Darling I could see, I was meant to be your girl

 

Its a funny feeling when you get to love someone

And thinking that hell never look your way

But then he says he loves you, and life has just begun

Its so much more than any words can say

 

I am just a girl, not the kind of woman men would like to meet

Just another girl no-one ever looks at in the street

But today, I cant believe its true

When you smiled and whispered "i love you"

Darling I could see, I was meant to be your girl

 

La la la la la, la la la la la-la, la la la la laaa

La la la la la, la la la la la-la, la la laaa

But today, I cant believe its true

When you smiled and whispered "i love you"

Darling I could see, I was meant to be your girl

 

I Am the City

 

Coming through a cloud, you're looking at me from above

And I'm a revelation spreading out before your eyes

And you find me beautiful and irresistible

A giant creature that forever seems to grow in size

And you feel a strange attraction

The air is vibrant and electrified

Welcome to me, here I am, my arms are open wide

 

Somewhere in the middle of the never-ending noise

There is a pulse, a steady rhythm of a heart that beats

And a million voices blend into a single voice

And you can hear it in the clamour of the crowded streets

People come and take their chances

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose a lot

Come, make your own contribution to this melting-pot

 

I'm the street you walk, the language you talk

I am the city

The skyline is me, and the energy

I am the city

The famous hotels and the cocktail bars

And the funny smells and the turmoil of course

And the people, the air that you're breathing is me

Yes, I am the city, you let me be

 

People feed me with their lives, I am a hungry soul

And they all worship me and pay their homage day and night

Every day I hear a lot of tired shopping feet

But come tonight they will be dancing in the neon lights

Dazzled by the crazy magic

They're grabbing pieces of the fatted calf

And in the wind if you listen hard you'll hear me laugh

 

I'm the street you walk, the language you talk

I am the city

The skyline is me, and the energy

I am the city

The famous hotels and the cocktail bars

And the funny smells and the turmoil of course

And the people, the parks and the squares that you see

All the sounds that you hear and the air that you're breathing is me

Yes, I am the city, you let me be

 

I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do

 

Love me or leave me, make your choice but believe me

I love you

I do, I do, I do, I do, I do

I cant conceal it, dont you see, cant you feel it?

Dont you too?

I do, I do, I do, I do, I do

 

Oh, Ive been dreaming through my lonely past

Now I just made it, I found you at last

 

So come on, now lets try it, I love you, cant deny it

cos its true

I do, I do, I do, I do, I do

 

Oh, no hard feelings between you and me

If we cant make it, but just wait and see

 

So come on, now lets try it, I love you, cant deny it

cos its true

I do, I do, I do, I do, I do

So love me or leave me, make your choice but believe me

I love you

I do, I do, I do, I do, I do

I cant conceal it, dont you see, cant you feel it?

Dont you too?

I do, I do, I do, I do, I do

 

I Have a Dream

 

I have a dream, a song to sing

To help me cope with anything

If you see the wonder of a fairy tale

You can take the future even if you fail

I believe in angels

Something good in everything I see

I believe in angels

When I know the time is right for me

Ill cross the stream - I have a dream

 

I have a dream, a fantasy

To help me through reality

And my destination makes it worth the while

Pushing through the darkness still another mile

I believe in angels

Something good in everything I see

I believe in angels

When I know the time is right for me

Ill cross the stream - I have a dream

Ill cross the stream - I have a dream

 

I have a dream, a song to sing

To help me cope with anything

If you see the wonder of a fairy tale

You can take the future even if you fail

I believe in angels

Something good in everything I see

I believe in angels

When I know the time is right for me

Ill cross the stream - I have a dream

Ill cross the stream - I have a dream

 

I Let the Music Speak

 

Im hearing images, Im seeing songs

No poet has ever painted

Voices call out to me, straight to my heart

So strange yet were so well acquainted

I let the music speak, with no restraints

I let my feelings take over

Carry my soul away into the world

Where beauty meets the darkness of the day

 

Where my mind is like an open window

Where the high and healing winds blow

From my shallow sleep the sounds awake me

I let them take me

(Let them wake me, let them have me, let them take me)

 

Let it be a joke

Let it be a smile

Let it be a farce if it makes me laugh for a little while

Let it be a tear

Let it be a sigh

Coming from a heart, speaking to a heart, let it be a cry

 

Some streets are emptiness, dry leaves of autumn

Rustling down an old alley

And in the dead of night I find myself

A blind man in some ancient valley

I let the music speak, leading me gently

Urging me like a lover

Leading me all the way

Into a place

Where beauty will defeat the darkest day

 

Where Im one with every grand illusion

No disturbance, no intrusion

Where I let the wistful sounds seduce me

I let them use me

(all illusion, no disturbance, no intrusion)

 

Let it be a joke

Let it be a smile

Let it be a farce if it makes me laugh for a little while

Let it be a tear

Let it be a sigh

Coming from a heart, speaking to a heart, let it be a cry

 

Let it be a tear

Let it be a sigh

Coming from a heart, speaking to a heart, let it be a cry

 

Let it be the joy of each new sunrise

Or the moment when a day dies

I surrender without reservation

No explanations

No questions why

I take it to me and let it flow through me

Yes, I let the music speak

I let the music speak

I Saw It in the Mirror

 

I saw it in the mirror, I saw it in my face

That Im no longer needed, anyone can take my place

I saw it in the mirror when I look into my eyes

cause something sure is wrong when this boy cries

(This boy cries)

 

I saw it in the mirror, my head is hanging low

And I aint too familiar with the feelings that I show

I know you say you love me, but Im looking through your lies

It doesnt really bother you if this boy cries

(This boy cries)

 

I never thought I could cry for you

But honey I will miss you til the day I die

(til the day I die)

 

I saw it in the mirror, I saw it in my face

That Im no longer needed, anyone can take my place

I saw it in the mirror when I look into my eyes

cause something sure is wrong when this boy cries

(This boy cries, this boy cries)

 

I Wonder

 

This park and these houses, old streets I have walked

Everything dear, will it be here

One day when I am returning?

My friends will get married, have children and homes

It sounds so nice, well-planned and wise

Never expecting surprises

 

I wonder, its frightening,

Leaving now, is that the right thing?

I wonder, it scares me,

But who the hell am I if I dont even try

Im not a coward

Oh no, Ill be strong

One chance in a lifetime

Yes I will take it, it cant go wrong

 

My friends and my family, this dull little town

Buses Ive missed, boys that Ive kissed

Everything old and familiar

 

I wonder, its frightening,

Leaving now, is that the right thing?

I wonder, it scares me,

But who the hell am I if I dont even try

Im not a coward

Oh no, Ill be strong

One chance in a lifetime

Yes I will take it.........

Yes I will take it, it cant go wrong

 

                                                 

                                               J            

 

 

Just A Notion

 

Just a notion that's all

Just a feeling that you're watchin' me

Every move I'm making

Am I reading your mind

Cause it's almost like you're touching me

There is no mistaking

Just a notion

That you'll be walkin' up to me

In a while

And you smile and say hello

Then we'll be dancing through the night

Knowing everything from there on

Must be right

Just a notion

But somehow I know I'm not wrong

If it's our destiny there's nothing we can do

But tonight is very special

It's the night for me and you

Just Like That

Until that day

My life had been a river

Following the same, predestinated course,

Suddenly detouring so unexpectedly

With uncompromising force.

My strongholds broke down all too easily;

I remember well,

How it did embarrass me;

I hung on to his every smile

Marveled at his style

 Just like that...

He walked into my house

As smug as a cat

He was handsome and smart

Walked away with my heart

Just like that...

He found a temporary home in my flat

Telling innocent lies

Throwing dust in my eyes

But I led him on,

Knowing that someday soon he'd be gone

Just like that...

As though he only stopped awhile for a chat;

But my secrets he learned

Leaving no stone unturned

 And once again, the river's flowing slowly,

Following the same and uneventful course.

Now the tears have dried,

it's become a pleasant break,

I recall without remorse.

But now and then

I wonder where he is

And I will admit,

he had something that I miss.

I guess he was a rolling stone;

The only one I've known.

 Just like that...

He walked into my house

As smug as a cat

He was handsome and smart

Walked away with my heart

Just like that...

He found a temporary home in my flat

Telling innocent lies

Throwing dust in my eyes

But I led him on,

Knowing that someday soon he'd be gone

Just like that...

As though he only stopped awhile for a chat;

But my secrets he learned

Leaving no stone unturned

King Kong Song

 

Well I was looking at a movie on the TV last night

Then I had a very funny notion, yeah

I really had to write a song about it

Then Im gonna sing it in my rockn roll band

And I bet that people gonna like it, yeah

I know that everybodys gonna shout it

 

About a dreadful mighty killer

A big black wild gorilla

 

We do the king Kong song, wont you sing along

Listen to the music and it couldnt go wrong

We do the king Kong song, gotta sing along

Cant you hear the beating of the monkey tom-tom

Listen to the rhythm of the king Kong song

 

Now we can make the jungle out of any old place

We can make gorillas out of people, yeah

Well who can tell a monkey from a monkey?

So people get together, gonna have a good time

Everybody listen to the music, yeah

So let your arms hang down

And waddle all around

Like a dreadful mighty killer

A big black wild gorilla

Listen to the music and it couldnt go wrong

We do the king Kong song, gotta sing along

Cant you hear the beating of the monkey tom-tom

Kisses of Fire

 

Lay your head on my chest so you hear every beat of my heart

Now theres nothing at all that can keep us apart

Touch my lips, close your eyes and see with your fingertips

Things that you do, and you know Im crazy bout you

 

Kisses of fire, burning, burning

Im at the point of no returning

Kisses of fire, sweet devotions

Caught in a land-slide of emotions

Ive had my share of love affairs but they were nothing compared to this

Oh, Im riding higher than the sky and there is fire in every kiss

Kisses of fire

Kisses of fire

 

When you sleep by my side I feel safe and I know I belong

Still its making me scared that my love is so strong

Losing you is a nightmare fate and to me its new

Never before did you see me begging for more

 

Kisses of fire, burning, burning

Im at the point of no returning

Kisses of fire, sweet devotions

Caught in a land-slide of emotions

Ive had my share of love affairs but they were nothing compared to this

Oh, Im riding higher than the sky and there is fire in every kiss

Kisses of fire

Kisses of fire

 

Kisses of fire, burning, burning

Im at the point of no returning

Kisses of fire, sweet devotions

Caught in a land-slide of emotions

Kisses of fire, burning, burning

(Im at the point of no returning)

Kisses of fire, sweet devotions

Im riding higher than the sky and there is fire in every kiss

(caught in a land-slide of emotions)

Kisses of fire, burning, burning

Im at the point of no returning

Kisses of fire, sweet devotions

Caught in a land-slide of emotions

 

Knowing Me Knowing You

 

No more carefree laughter

Silence ever after

Walking through an empty house, tears in my eyes

Here is where the story ends, this is goodbye

 

Knowing me, knowing you (ah-haa)

There is nothing we can do

Knowing me, knowing you (ah-haa)

We just have to face it, this time we're through

(This time we're through, this time we're through

This time we're through, we're really through)

Breaking up is never easy, I know but I have to go

(I have to go this time

I have to go, this time I know)

Knowing me, knowing you

It's the best I can do

 

Mem'ries (mem'ries), good days (good days), bad days (bad days)

They'll be (they'll be), with me (with me) always (always)

In these old familiar rooms children would play

Now there's only emptiness, nothing to say

 

Knowing me, knowing you (ah-haa)

There is nothing we can do

Knowing me, knowing you (ah-haa)

We just have to face it, this time we're through

(This time we're through, this time we're through

This time we're through, we're really through)

Breaking up is never easy, I know but I have to go

(I have to go this time

I have to go, this time I know)

Knowing me, knowing you

It's the best I can do

Lay All Your Love on Me

 

I wasnt jealous before we met

Now every woman I see is a potential threat

And Im possessive, it isnt nice

Youve heard me saying that smoking was my only vice

But now it isnt true

Now everything is new

And all Ive learned has overturned

I beg of you......

 

Dont go wasting your emotion

Lay all your love on me

 

It was like shooting a sitting duck

A little small talk, a smile and baby I was stuck

I still dont know what youve done with me

A grown-up woman should never fall so easily

I feel a kind of fear

When I dont have you near

Unsatisfied, I skip my pride

I beg you dear......

 

Dont go wasting your emotion

Lay all your love on me

Dont go sharing your devotion

Lay all your love on me

 

Ive had a few little love affairs

They didnt last very long and theyve been pretty scarce

I used to think that was sensible

It makes the truth even more incomprehensible

cause everything is new

And everything is you

And all Ive learned has overturned

What can I do......

 

Dont go wasting your emotion

Lay all your love on me

Dont go sharing your devotion

Lay all your love on me

Like an Angel Passing Through My Room

 

Long awaited darkness falls

Casting shadows on the walls

In the twilight hour I am alone

Sitting near the fireplace, dying embers warm my face

In this peaceful solitude

All the outside world subdued

Everything comes back to me again

In the gloom

Like an angel passing through my room

 

Half awake and half in dreams

Seeing long forgotten scenes

So the present runs into the past

Now and then become entwined, playing games within my mind

Like the embers as they die

Love was one prolonged goodbye

And it all comes back to me tonight

In the gloom

Like an angel passing through my room

 

I close my eyes

And my twilight images go by

All too soon

Like an angel passing through my room

 

Love Isn't Easy

 

Long awaited darkness falls

Casting shadows on the walls

In the twilight hour I am alone

Sitting near the fireplace, dying embers warm my face

In this peaceful solitude

All the outside world subdued

Everything comes back to me again

In the gloom

Like an angel passing through my room

Half awake and half in dreams

Seeing long forgotten scenes

So the present runs into the past

Now and then become entwined, playing games within my mind

Like the embers as they die

Love was one prolonged good-bye

And it all comes back to me tonight

In the gloom

Like an angel passing through my room

I close my eyes

And my twilight images go by

All too soon

Like an angel passing through my room

 

Love light

 

I've always hated my room, it's so gloomy and dreary

Always the dark, for the windows just face the back yard

So I can't understand how it's happened, how everything's changing

This old dirty ceiling seems a little whiter

When you walked into the room it all got so much brighter

You must have a lovelight

Everything around you is lovelight

And I can feel your love everywhere

Maybe even when you're not there

The lovelight

Everything around you is lovelight

You're shining like a star in the night

I won't let you out of my sight

I don't want to lose you, I don't want to lose your lovelight

How I remember the first time we went to the movies

We had decided to meet on the corner downtown

And I waited there when you came up from behind and you kissed me

And the traffic seemed to get a little lighter

When you came into my life it all got so much brighter

You must have a lovelight

Everything around you is lovelight

And I can feel your love everywhere

Maybe even when you're not there

The lovelight

Everything around you is lovelight

You're shining like a star in the night

I won't let you out of my sight

I don't want to lose you, I don't want to lose your lovelight

And I feel so good

And I feel so right

And I know that you must have a lovelight

You've got lovelight

And I can feel your love everywhere

Maybe even when you're not there

You've got lovelight

Everything around you is lovelight

You're shining like a star in the night

I won't let you out of my sight

I don't want to lose you, I don't want to lose your lovelight

Everything about you is right

Let it glow and let it be bright

I don't want to lose your lovelight

Shining like a star in the night

Mamma Mia

 

Ive been cheated by you since I dont know when

So I made up my mind, it must come to an end

Look at me now, will I ever learn?

I dont know how but I suddenly lose control

Theres a fire within my soul

Just one look and I can hear a bell ring

One more look and I forget everything, o-o-o-oh

 

Mamma mia, here I go again

My my, how can I resist you?

Mamma mia, does it show again?

My my, just how much Ive missed you

Yes, Ive been brokenhearted

Blue since the day we parted

Why, why did I ever let you go?

Mamma mia, now I really know,

My my, I could never let you go.

 

Ive been angry and sad about the things that you do

I cant count all the times that Ive told you were through

And when you go, when you slam the door

I think you know that you wont be away too long

You know that Im not that strong.

Just one look and I can hear a bell ring

One more look and I forget everything, o-o-o-oh

 

Mamma mia, here I go again

My my, how can I resist you?

Mamma mia, does it show again?

My my, just how much Ive missed you

Yes, Ive been brokenhearted

Blue since the day we parted

Why, why did I ever let you go?

Mamma mia, even if I say

Bye bye, leave me now or never

Mamma mia, its a game we play

Bye bye doesnt mean forever

 

Mamma mia, here I go again

My my, how can I resist you?

Mamma mia, does it show again?

My my, just how much Ive missed you

Yes, Ive been brokenhearted

Blue since the day we parted

Why, why did I ever let you go

Mamma mia, now I really know

My my, I could never let you go

 

 

Man in the Middle

 

Did you see that man in the limousine

With a pretty blond, he is fifty and the girls only seventeen

But she doesnt care, and she never will

If hes ninety-five she dont give a damn

Just as long as he pays the bill

 

Did you see that man with a fat cigar

He just left his lunch with a belly full of lobster and caviar

He can choose the wine from a vintage year

He can drink champagne in his limousine

While the rest of us drink a beer

 

cause hes the man in the middle, never second fiddle

Just like a spider in a cobweb

Hard as a hammer, not the kind of boss you double-cross

cause hes the man in the middle, knows the way to diddle

Hes never bothered by his conscience

Deals with the devil, cause he wants to be

Man in the middle, the middle, the middle

In the middle (in the middle, in the middle...)

 

But you see that man made a big mistake

Even though hes got all his servants and a mansion beside a lake

And the money too, all that he can spend

He can buy the most, nearly anything

But he cant buy an honest friend

 

cause hes the man in the middle, never second fiddle

Just like a spider in a cobweb

Hard as a hammer, not the kind of boss you double-cross

cause hes the man in the middle, knows the way to diddle

Hes never bothered by his conscience

Deals with the devil, cause he wants to be

Man in the middle, the middle, the middle

In the middle (in the middle, in the middle...)

 

Me and I

 

Sometimes when I'm mad

There's a part of me that seems to be a little sad

Sometimes when I scream

There's a voice in me that says, You shouldn't be so mean

Oh no, oh no

Part of me is acting while the other stands beside

Yes, I am to myself what Jekyll must have been to Hyde

 

We're like sun and rainy weather

Sometimes we're a hit together

Me and I

Gloomy moods and inspiration

We're a funny combination

Me and I

I don't think I'm different or in any way unique

Think about yourself for a minute

And you'll find the answer in it

Everyone's a freak

 

Sometimes I have toyed

With ideas that I got from good old Dr. Freud

Nothing new of course

It may seem to you I try to break through open doors

Oh no, oh no

I just wanna say a lot of that applies to me

Cause it's an explanation to my split identity

 

We're like sun and rainy weather

Sometimes we're a hit together

Me and I

Gloomy moods and inspiration

We're a funny combination

Me and I

I don't think I'm different or in any way unique

Think about yourself for a minute

And you'll find the answer in it

Everyone's a freak

 

Me and I...

 

We're like sun and rainy weather

Sometimes we're a hit together

Me and I

Gloomy moods and inspiration

We're a funny combination

Me and I

I don't think I'm different or in any way unique

Think about yourself for a minute

And you'll find the answer in it

Everyone's a freak

 

We're like sun and rainy weather

Sometimes we're a hit together

Me and I

Gloomy moods and inspiration

We're a funny combination

Me and I...

 

Medley: Pick A Bale Of Cotton/On Top of Old Smokey/Midnight Special

On Top of Old Smokey

 

On top of old Smokey

all covered with snow

I lost my true lover

by courting so slow

For courting's a pleasure

And parting is brief

and a false-hearted lover

is worse than a thief

On top of old Smokey

all covered with snow

I lost my true lover

by courting so slow

 

Midnight Special

 

Well, you wake up in the morning

Hear the ding dong ring

You go marching to the table

See the same old thing

See the fork on the table

Nothing in your pan

If you say a thing about it

You're in trouble with the man

 

Let the midnight special

Shine a light on me

Let the midnight special

Shine it's everlovin' light on me

 

If you ever go to Houston

Well you'd better act right

And you'd better not gamble

And you'd better not fight

For the sheriff will arrest you

And he'll take you down

And before you understand it

You are prison bound

 

Let the midnight special

Shine a light on me

Let the midnight special

Shine it's everlovin' light on me (on me, on me)

Let the midnight special

Shine a light on me

Let the midnight special

Shine it's everlovin' light on me (on me, on me)

(repeat)

 

Merry - Go - Round

 

I have tried in vain never had success

So, it seems my life is nothing but a mess

I have lost my only friend

Now it seems I have to start again

 

Chorus

Merry-go-round

Where am I bound

With my love and feelings

Merry-go-round

Who wants to kiss me

And hug me and miss me

Yes, who wants to do it

I wish that I knew it

Merry-go-round

Wish I had found

Somebody to care for

Where am I bound

Life is so lonely

If life is just only

To love with my loving

Goes round and round

 

Looking for someone

Who would want to stay

I might find her

With a bit of luck one day

But who knows

So, until then

I can only try and try again

 

Repeat chorus (2)

 

 

Money Money Money

 

I work all night, I work all day, to pay the bills I have to pay

Ain't it sad?

And still there never seems to be a single penny left for me

That's too bad

In my dreams I have a plan

If I got me a wealthy man

I wouldn't have to work at all, I'd fool around and have a ball...

Money, money, money

Must be funny

In the rich man's world

Money, money, money

Always sunny

In the rich man's world

Aha-ahaaa

All the things I could do

If I had a little money

It's a rich man's world

A man like that is hard to find but I can't get him off my mind

Ain't it sad

And if he happens to be free I bet he wouldn't fancy me

That's too bad

So I must leave, I'll have to go

To Las Vegas or Monaco

And win a fortune in a game, my life will never be the same...

Money, money, money

Must be funny

In the rich man's world

Money, money, money

Always sunny

In the rich man's world

Aha-ahaaa

All the things I could do

If I had a little money

It's a rich man's world

Money, money, money

Must be funny

In the rich man's world

Money, money, money

Always sunny

In the rich man's world

Aha-ahaaa

All the things I could do

If I had a little money

It's a rich man's world

It's a rich man's world

 

Move On

 

"they say a restless body can hide a peaceful soul.

A voyager, and a settler, they both have a distant goal.

If I explore the heavens, or if I search inside.

Well, it really doesnt matter as long as I can tell myself

Ive always tried."

 

Like a roller in the ocean, life is motion

Move on

Like a wind thats always blowing, life is flowing

Move on

Like the sunrise in the morning, life is dawning

Move on

How I treasure every minute

Being part of it, being in it

With the urge to move on

 

Ive travelled every country, Ive travelled in my mind

It seems were on a journey, a trip through space and time

And somewhere lies the answer                                                    

To all the questions why

What really makes the difference

Between all dead and living things, the will to stay alive

 

Like a roller in the ocean (la la la la la la-la)

Life is motion (la la la la la la-la)

Move on (la la la la-la)

Like a wind thats always blowing (la la la la la la-la)

Life is flowing (la la la la la la-la)

Move on (la la la la-la)

Like the sunrise in the morning (la la la la la la-la)

Life is dawning (la la la la la la-la)

Move on (la la la la-la)

How I treasure every minute (la la la la)

Being part of it (la la la la)

Being in it (la la la la)

With the urge to move on

 

The morning breeze that ripples the surface of the sea

The crying of the seagulls that hover over me

I see it and I hear it

But how can I explain

The wonder of the moment

To be alive, to feel the sun that follows every rain

 

Like a roller in the ocean (la la la la la la-la)

Life is motion (la la la la la la-la)

Move on (la la la la-la)

Like a wind thats always blowing (la la la la la la-la)

Life is flowing (la la la la la la-la)

Move on (la la la la-la)

Like the sunrise in the morning (la la la la la la-la)

Life is dawning (la la la la la la-la)

Move on (la la la la-la)

How I treasure every minute (la la la la)

Being part of it (la la la la-ah)

Being in it

With the urge to move on

 

La la la la la la-la, la la la la la la-la, la la la la-la

Like a wind thats always blowing

La la la la la la-la

La la la la la la-la (life is flowing)

La la la la-la (move on)

Like the sunrise in the morning

La la la la la la-la

La la la la la la-la (life is dawning)

La la la la-la (move on)

How I treasure every minute (la la la la)

Being part of it (la la la la-ah)

Being in it

With the urge to move on

La la la la la la-la, la la la la la la-la, la la la la-la

Like a wind thats always blowing........

 

My Love My Life

 

I've seen it on your face

Tells me more than any worn-out old phrase

So now we'll go separate ways

Never again we two

Never again, nothing I can do

Like an image passing by, my love, my life

In the mirror of your eyes, my love, my life

I can see it all so clearly

(See it all so clearly)

Answer me sincerely

(Answer me sincerely)

Was it a dream, a lie?

Like reflections of your mind, my love, my life

Are the words you try to find, my love, my life

But I know I don't possess you

So go away, God bless you

You are still my love and my life

Still my one and only

I've watched you look away

Tell me is it really so hard to say?

Oh, this has been my longest day

Sitting here close to you

Knowing that maybe tonight we're through

Like an image passing by, my love, my life

In the mirror of your eyes, my love, my life

I can see it all so clearly

(See it all so clearly)

Answer me sincerely

(Answer me sincerely)

Was it a dream, a lie?

Like reflections of your mind, my love, my life

Are the words you try to find, my love, my life

But I know I don't possess you

So go away, God bless you

You are still my love and my life

Yes I know I don't possess you

So go away, God bless you

You are still my love and my life

Still my one and only

 

My Mama Said

 

Tried to sneak out without saying

With my loudest record playing

Ooh, my mama said, look at this, you havent done your bed

My mama said, thats a thing that you should do instead

 

Then I did what she had told me

Dying for my friend to hold me

Ooh, my mama said, try and get one thing into your head

My mama said, pa and me, we give you room and bed

How I wanna live my life

Wanna live my life

La-la-la, la-la-la, life

 

 

In the morning she said listen

Ooh, I felt like in a prison

Yeah, my mama said, I know youve been out again with Fred

(My mama said)

My mama said, dont you lie, your cheeks are blushing red

(My mama said)

Oh I wanna live my life

Wanna live my life

La-la-la, la-la-la, life

 

I said I can live without him

How I wish you wouldnt doubt him

Ooh, my mama said, if you want to hurt me go ahead

(my mama said)

My mama said, I suppose youd rather see me dead

(My mama said)

Oh I wanna live my life

Wanna live my life

La-la-la, la-la-la, life

La-la-la, la-la-la, life

La-la-la, la-la-la, life

La-la-la, la-la-la, life

Nina, Pretty Ballerina

 

Every day in the morning on her way to the office

You can see as she catches a train

Just a face among a million faces

Just another woman with no name

Not the girl you'd remember but she's still something special

If you knew her I am sure you'd agree

'Cause I know she's got a little secret

Friday evening she turns out to be...

 

Nina, pretty ballerina, now she is the queen of the dancing floor

This is the moment she's waited for

Just like Cinderella, just like Cinderella

Nina, pretty ballerina, who would ever think she could be this way

This is the part that she likes to play

But she knows the fun would go away

If she would play it every day

 

So she's back every morning to her work at the office

And another week to live in a dream

And another row of early mornings

In an almost never-ending stream

She don't talk very often, kind of shy and uncertain

Everybody seems to think she's a bore

But they wouldn't know her little secret

What her Friday night would have in store...

 

Nina, pretty ballerina, now she is the queen of the dancing floor

This is the moment she's waited for

Just like Cinderella, just like Cinderella

Nina, pretty ballerina, who would ever think she could be this way

This is the part that she likes to play

She would like to play it every day

 

Nina, pretty ballerina, now she is the queen of the dancing floor

This is the moment she's waited for

Just like Cinderella, just like Cinderella

Nina, pretty ballerina, who would ever think she could be this way

This is the part that she likes to play

 

                                                               O          

 

On and on and On

 

I was at a party and this fella said to me

Something bad is happening, I'm sure you do agree

People care for nothing, no respect for human rights

Evil times are coming, we are in for darker nights

I said, who are you to talk about impending doom?

He got kinda wary as he looked around the room

He said, I'm a minister, a big shot in the state

I said, I just can't believe it, boy I think it's great

Brother can you tell me what is right and what is wrong?

He said, Keep on rocking baby, 'til the night is gone

 

On and on and on

Keep on rocking baby

Till the night is gone

On and on and on

Till the night is gone

On and on and on

Keep on rocking baby

Till the night is gone

On and on and on

Till the night is gone

 

Over in the corner I could see this other guy

He was kinda flirty, he was giving me the eye

So I took advantage of the fact that I'm a star

Shook my hair and took a casual stroll up to the bar

And as sure as hell this guy was coming up to me

He said, who am I and who are you and who are we?

What's our situation, do we have some time for us?

I said I was not exactly waiting for the bus

He said, If you're going somewhere can I come along?

I said, Keep on rocking baby, 'til the night is gone

 

On and on and on

Keep on rocking baby

Till the night is gone

On and on and on

Till the night is gone

On and on and on

Keep on rocking baby

Till the night is gone

On and on and on

Till the night is gone

 

On Top of Old Smokey

 

On top of old Smokey

All covered with snow

I lost my true lover

By courting so slow

For courtings a pleasure

And parting is grief

And a false-hearted lover

Is worse than a thief

 

On top of old smokey

All covered with snow

I lost my true lover

By courting so slow

 

One Man, One Woman

 

No smiles, not a single word at the breakfast table

Though I would have liked to begin

So much that I wanna say, but I feel unable

You leave and you slam the door

Like youve done many times before

And I cry and I feel so helpless

 

One man, one woman

Two friends and two true lovers

Somehow well help each other through the hard times

One man, one woman

One life to live together

One chance to take that never comes back again

You and me, to the end

 

Outside I can see the sun through the open window

Inside everything feels so cold

Whats wrong, what is happening, where did all our love go?

Sometimes when I just cant cope

I cling to a desperate hope

And I cry and I feel like dying

 

One man, one woman

Two friends and two true lovers

Somehow well help each other through the hard times

One man, one woman

One life to live together

One chance to take that never comes back again

You and me, to the end

 

Daydreams of a better life, but I have to wake up

The sound of the key in the door

You smile and I realize that we need a shake-up

Our love is a precious thing

Worth the pain and the suffering

And its never too late for changing

 

One man, one woman

Two friends and two true lovers

Somehow well help each other through the hard times

One man, one woman

One life to live together

One chance to take that never comes back again

You and me, to the end

You and me, to the end

 

One of Us

 

They passed me by, all of those great romances

You were, I felt, robbing me

 Of my rightful chances

My picture clear, everything seemed so easy

And so I dealt you the blow

One of us had to go

Now its different, I want you to know

 

One of us is crying

One of us is lying

In her lonely bed

Staring at the ceiling

Wishing she was somewhere else instead

One of us is lonely

One of us is only

Waiting for a call

Sorry for herself, feeling stupid feeling small

Wishing she had never left at all

 

I saw myself

 As a concealed attraction

I felt you kept me away

 From the heat and the action

Just like a child,

Stubborn and misconceiving

Thats how I started the show

One of us had to go

Now Ive changed and I want you to know

 

One of us is crying

One of us is lying

In her lonely bed

Staring at the ceiling

Wishing she was somewhere else instead

One of us is lonely

One of us is only

Waiting for a call

Sorry for herself, feeling stupid feeling small

Wishing she had never left at all

Never left at all

 

Staring at the ceiling

Wishing she was somewhere else instead

One of us is lonely

One of us is only

Waiting for a call

 

Our Last Summer

 

The summer air was soft and warm

The feeling right, the Paris night

Did its best to please us

And strolling down the Elsie

We had a drink in each cafe

And you

You talked of politics, philosophy and I

Smiled like Mona Lisa

We had our chance

It was a fine and true romance

 

I can still recall our last summer

I still see it all

Walks along the seine, laughing in the rain

Our last summer

Memories that remain

 

We made our way along the river

And we sat down in the grass

By the Eiffel tower

I was so happy we had met

It was the age of no regret

Oh yes

Those crazy years, that was the time

Of the flower-power

But underneath we had a fear of flying

Of getting old, a fear of slowly dying

We took the chance

Like we were dancing our last dance

 

I can still recall our last summer

I still see it all

In the tourist jam, round the Notre dame

Our last summer

Walking hand in hand

 

Paris restaurants

Our last summer

Morning croissants

Living for the day, worries far away

Our last summer

We could laugh and play

 

And now youre working in a bank

The family man, the football fan

And your name is harry

How dull it seems

Yet youre the hero of my dreams

 

I can still recall our last summer

I still see it all

Walks along the seine, laughing in the rain

Our last summer

Memories that remain

I can still recall our last summer

I still see it all

In the tourist jam, round the notre dame

Our last summer

Walking hand in hand

Paris restaurants

Our last summer

Morning croissants

Living for the day, worries far away

People Need Love

 

People need hope, people need loving

People need trust from a fellow man

People need love to make a good living

People need faith in a helping hand

 

Man has always wanted a woman by his side

 To keep him company

Women always knew that it takes a man to get

Matrimonial harmony

Everybody knows that a man whos feeling down

 Wants some female sympathy

Gotta have love to carry on living

Gotta have love till eternity

 

People need hope, people need loving

People need trust from a fellow man

People need love to make a good living

People need faith in a helping hand

 

La la la la, la la la la-la, la la la la la la la-la la la

La la la la, la la la la-la, la la la la la la la-la la laa...

 

Flowers in the desert need a drop of rain like a woman needs her man

If a mans in love and his woman wants the moon

Then hell it down if he can

Somebody who loves you and somebody who cares

Isnt that what youd call a friend?

Gotta have love to carry on living

You can have peace if you understand

 

People need hope, people need loving

People need trust from a fellow man

People need love to make a good living

People need faith in a helping hand

 

La la la la, la la la la-la, la la la la la la la-la la la

La la la la, la la la la-la, la la la la la la la-la la laa...

 

People need hope, people need loving

People need trust from a fellow man

People need love to make a good living

People need faith in a helping hand

 

La la la la, la la la la-la, la la la la la la la-la la la

La la la la, la la la la-la, la la la la la la la-la la laa...

La la la la, la la la la-la, la la la la la la la-la la la

La la la la, la la la la-la, la la la la la la la-la la laa...

Put On Your White Sombrero

 

Put on your white sombrero

Saddle your horse my dear

And ride off into the sunset

Youd better go for there is no Place for you here

Like an old fashioned hero

You stand before me

You think our life is a movie

My world is real

I live and feel

And I can do without you

Put on your white sombrero

Your red bandana too

Think of this day as a showdown

Goodbye my friend

This is the end

For me and you

Now be a bold vaquero

Dont show your feelings

Ill cry while youre disappearing

Into the night

All dressed in white

Unchained and free without me

 

Put on your white sombrero

Like all the cowboys do

Go find a sweet senorita

Somebody meek

Wholl never speak?

Harshly to you

Youre such a cavaliero

Proud, never bending

I want someone who will take me

Just as I am

I need a man

Who is in rhyme?

With his time

Youll never take me

Just as I am

I need a man

Who is in rhyme?

With his time

Ring Ring

 

I was sitting by the phone

I was waiting all alone

Baby by myself

I sit and wait and wonder about you

Its a dark and dreary night

Seems like nothings going right

Wont you tell me honey how can

 I go on here without you?

 

Yes Im down and feeling blue

And I dont know what to do, oh-oh

 

Ring, ring, why dont you give me a call?

Ring, ring, the happiest sound of them all

Ring, ring, I stare at the phone on the wall

And I sit all alone impatiently

Wont you please understand the need in me

So, ring, ring, why dont you give me a call?

So, ring, ring, why dont you give me a call?

 

You were here and now youre gone

Hey did I do something wrong?

I just cant believe that I could be so badly mistaken

Was it me or was it you?

Tell me, are we really through?

Wont you hear me cry and you will know that my heart is breaking

 

Please forgive and then forget

Or maybe darling better yet, oh-oh

 

Ring, ring, why dont you give me a call?

Ring, ring, the happiest sound of them all

Ring, ring, I stare at the phone on the wall

And I sit all alone impatiently

Wont you please understand the need in me?

So, ring, ring, why dont you give me a call?

So, ring, ring, why dont you give me a call?

Oh-oh, ring, ring, why dont you give me a call?

So, ring, ring, why dont you give me a call?

 

Rock & Roll Band

 

Sitting in the darkest corner

In the tender light I saw her face

She was looking so sad and lonely

Someone help me, someone save me

I could see the look she gave me, oh

Oh yeah, and there was one thing only

That I knew I could do

 

Let's go girl

It's a beautiful place this world

Come on baby let's dance

To the rock'n' roll band

Let me show you that I know how

Come on baby let's dance

No use being broken-hearted now

Oh yeah, you're gonna feel much better

Yes I know that you will

 

Let's go girl

Rubber Ball Man

 

The poster on the wall of a dear friend

I wish there was a way that I could show you how your songs set me free

The hero of them all

You're a legend

I guess I'll never get a chance to know you

Still you're close as can be

 

Make the bandstand to a dreamland, Rubber Ball Man

Clapping your hands, let your feet dance, Rubber Ball Man

When you're jumping up and down, nobody's standing still

Some of us dreaming, some of us screaming

Look at your fans, how we love you, Rubber Ball Man!

 

       

                                                          S          

 

S O S

 

I'd like to dedicate this song to mother earth

Where are those happy days, they seem so hard to find

I try to reach for you but you have closed your mind

Whatever happened to our love? I wish I understood

It used to feel so nice, it used to be so good

So when you're near me, darling can't you hear me S.O.S.

The love you gave me, nothing else can save me S.O.S.

When you're gone, how can I even try to go on?

When you're gone, well I try, how can I carry on?

You seem so far away but you are standing nearer

You make me feel alive but something died I fear

I really tried to make it out I wish I understood

What happened to our love, it used to be so good

So when you're near me, darling can't you hear me S.O.S.

The love you gave me, nothing else can save me S.O.S.

When you're gone, how can I even try to go on?

When you're gone, ooh I try, how can I carry on?

So when you're near me, darling can't you hear me S.O.S.

The love you gave me, nothing else can save me S.O.S.

When you're gone, how can I even try to go on?

When you're gone, ooh I try, how can I carry on?

When you're gone, how can I even try to go on?

When you're gone, ooh I try, how can I carry on?

 

Santa Rosa

 

Id give anything to be back home in Santa rosa

How I wish this road would take me home where I belong

Because I have found no other place where I will stay

Im tired and all my dreams have failed along the way

 

Id give anything to be back home in Santa rosa

Though I wonder what my folks would think about me now

I guess Ive changed, like people do, when things go wrong

But in the end, somehow I know, well get along

 

Chorus

Santa rosa Ill be back to stay

Im on my way

Santa rosa Ill be back to stay

 

Id give anything to be back home in Santa rosa

How I wish to see the old house where I used to live

And all my friends, will they be there, when I come home

How I regret the day when I set out to roam

 

Repeat chorus

 

Id give anything to be back home in Santa rosa (3)

 

Should I Laugh or Cry

 

He stands towering over me beside my bed

Losing his head

Tells me I must take him seriously

Frowning 'pon the usual way

He's such a clever guy

Then I wonder, should I laugh or cry?

His presence in the striped pyjamas that I bought

Trousers too short

Gives me hours of philosophy

Carries on the way he does

And me I get so tired

And I wonder should I laugh or cry

I don't mind if his banner flies

A fool's pride in his eyes

Standing there on his toes to grow in size

All I see is a big belief

Halfway up to the end

He's wrapped up in the warm and sacred truth

Of an eternal lie

So should I laugh or cry?

Strange how dangerously indifferent I have grown

Cold as a stone

No more pain where there was pain before

Far away he rambles on

I feel my throat go dry

And I wonder, should I laugh or cry?

I don't mind if his banner flies

A fool's pride in his eyes

Standing there on his toes to grow in size

All I see is a big belief

Halfway up to the end

He's wrapped up in the warm and sacred truth

Of an eternal lie

So should I laugh or cry?

 

Sitting in the Palm tree

 

See me sitting in the palm tree

Looking down at people passing by

Sitting here no-one can harm me

They just stare at me and wonder why

No need to bother, Im gonna stay up here

Whatever happens, I wont let no-one near

Until you tell me, Jeanie, Jeanie on my mind, wont you please?

You really love me, Jeanie, Jeanie youre so fine, yes you are now

And in the evening, when the sun goes down

Ill be the bluest of men in this town

cause I love you, Jeanie, Jeanie on my mind

 

 

See me sitting in the palm tree

Waiting for those little words from you

People laugh and point their fingers

Like I was a monkey at the zoo

But I will stay here, among my coconuts

So you will know dear, youre everything Ive got

Now wont you tell me, Jeanie, Jeanie on my mind?

 

Winds blow, stars glow, I see a light in a window

Dark trees, soft breeze, carry my message to her please

 

See me sitting in the palm tree

Feeling angry at the silly crowd

No-one else but you can calm me

You should know by now Im far too proud

I need to show you, Ive got my feelings too

You shouldnt treat me like you always do

So wont you tell me, Jeanie, Jeanie on my mind, wont you please

You really love me, Jeanie, Jeanie youre so fine, yes you are now

And in the evening, when the sun goes down

Ill be the bluest of men in this town

cause I love you, Jeanie, Jeanie on my mind

Jeanie, Jeanie youre so fine

Jeanie, Jeanie on my mind

Jeanie, Jeanie youre so fine

Jeanie, Jeanie on my mind

Jeanie, Jeanie youre so fine

Slipping Through My Fingers

 

Schoolbag in hand, she leaves home in the early morning

Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile

I watch her go with a surge of that well-known sadness

And I have to sit down for a while

The feeling that Im losing her forever

And without really entering her world

Im glad whenever I can share her laughter

That funny little girl

 

Slipping through my fingers all the time

I try to capture every minute

The feeling in it

Slipping through my fingers all the time

Do I really see whats in her mind?

Each time I think Im close to knowing

She keeps on growing

Slipping through my fingers all the time

 

Sleep in our eyes, her and me at the breakfast table

Barely awake, I let precious time go by

Then when shes gone theres that odd melancholy feeling

And a sense of guilt I cant deny

What happened to the wonderful adventures?

The places I had planned for us to go

(Slipping through my fingers all the time)

Well, some of that we did but most we didnt

And why I just dont know

 

Slipping through my fingers all the time

I try to capture every minute

The feeling in it

Slipping through my fingers all the time

Do I really see whats in her mind?

Each time I think Im close to knowing

She keeps on growing

Slipping through my fingers all the time

 

Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture

And save it from the funny tricks of time

Slipping through my fingers...

 

Slipping through my fingers all the time

 

Schoolbag in hand she leaves home in the early morning

Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile...

 

So Long

 

You think youre gonna make me sulk, you and your fancy car, ah-ha-ha

But I can tell you honey your tricks aint gonna get you far, ah-ha-ha

They say that moneys got a magic touch

But not to me, it doesnt mean that much

You wont have me tonight

All right, all right, all right, all right

 

So long, see you honey

You cant buy me with your money

Chasing, dazing, driving me crazy

But Ill never be your girl

So long, see you honey

You cant buy me with your money

You know its not worth trying

So long, so long, so long

 

You didnt have to send me flowers like you did today, ah-ha-ha

I wouldnt keep a thing from you. I gave them all away, ah-ha-ha

The girls might fall for everything youve got

But Im not one of them, you know Im not

You wont have me tonight

All right, all right, all right, all right

 

So long, see you honey

You cant buy me with your money

Chasing, dazing, driving me crazy

But Ill never be your girl

So long, see you honey

You cant buy me with your money

You know its not worth trying

So long, so long, so long

 

So long, see you honey

You cant buy me with your money

You know its not worth trying

So long, so long, so long

So long, so long, so long

So long, so long, so long

 

Soldiers

 

Do I hear what I think Im hearing?

Do I see the signs I think I see?

Or is this just a fantasy?

Is it true that the beast is waking?

Stirring in his restless sleep tonight

In the pale moonlight

In the grip of this cold December

You and I have reason to remember

 

Soldiers write the songs that soldiers sing

The songs that you and I dont sing

They blow their horns and march along

They drum their drums and look so strong

Youd think that nothing in the world was wrong

Soldiers write the songs that soldiers sing

The songs that you and I wont sing

Lets not look the other way

Taking a chance

cause if the bugler starts to play

We too must dance

 

Whats that sound, whats that dreadful rumble?

Wont somebody tell me what I hear?

In the distance but drawing near

Is it only a storm approaching?

All that thunder and the blinding light

In the winter night

In the grip of this cold December

You and I have reason to remember

 

Soldiers write the songs that soldiers sing

The songs that you and I dont sing

They blow their horns and march along

They drum their drums and look so strong

Youd think that nothing in the world was wrong

Soldiers write the songs that soldiers sing

The songs that you and I wont sing

Lets not look the other way

Taking a chance

cause if the bugler starts to play

We too must dance

 

Soldiers write the songs that soldiers sing

The songs that you and I wont sing

Lets not look the other way

Taking a chance

cause if the bugler starts to play

We too must dance

 

 

 

Summer Night City

 

Summer night city...

 

Summer night city...

 

Waiting for the sunrise, soul dancing in the dark

 

Summer night city

 

Walking in the moonlight, love-making in the park

 

Summer night city

 

In the sun I feel like sleeping

 

I cant take it for too long

 

My impatience slowly creeping

 

Up my spine and growing strong

 

I know whats waiting there for me

 

Tonight Im loose and fancy-free

 

Aa-ahhh

 

When the night comes with the action

 

I just know its time to go

 

Cant resist the strange attraction

 

From that giant dynamo

 

Lots to take and lots to give

 

Time to

 

Super Trouper

 

Super trouper beams are gonna blind me

But I wont feel blue

Like I always do

cause somewhere in the crowd theres you

 

I was sick and tired of everything

When I called you last night from Glasgow

All I do is eat and sleep and sing

Wishing every show was the last show

(Wishing every show was the last show)

So imagine I was glad to hear youre coming

(Glad to hear youre coming)

Suddenly I feel all right

(And suddenly its gonna be)

And its gonna be so different

When Im on the stage tonight

 

Tonight the

Super trouper lights are gonna find me

Shining like the sun

(sup-p-per troup-p-per)

Smiling, having fun

(sup-p-per troup-p-per)

Feeling like a number one

Tonight the

Super trouper beams are gonna blind me

But I wont feel blue

(sup-p-per troup-p-per)

Like I always do

(sup-p-per troup-p-per)

cause somewhere in the crowd theres you

 

Facing twenty thousand of your friends

How can anyone be so lonely

Part of a success that never ends

Still Im thinking about you only

(still Im thinking about you only)

There are moments when I think Im going crazy

(think Im going crazy)

But its gonna be alright

(youll soon be changing everything)

Everything will be so different

When Im on the stage tonight

 

Tonight the

Super trouper lights are gonna find me

Shining like the sun

(sup-p-per troup-p-per)

Smiling, having fun

(sup-p-per troup-p-per)

Feeling like a number one

Tonight the

Super trouper beams are gonna blind me

But I wont feel blue

(sup-p-per troup-p-per)

Like I always do

(sup-p-per troup-p-per)

cause somewhere in the crowd theres you

 

So Ill be there when you arrive

The sight of you will prove to me Im still alive

And when you take me in your arms

And hold me tight

I know its gonna mean so much tonight

 

Tonight the

Super trouper lights are gonna find me

Shining like the sun

(sup-p-per troup-p-per)

Smiling, having fun

But I wont feel blue

Suzy

 

Suzy was nine and I was ten

Right at the time when boys like to think they're men

She used to follow us at school

We really thought that she was a little fool

And one day we said to her

We don't want to hurt you girl

But you'd better

 

Look for a friend of your own, Suzy-hang-around

Better come back when you're grown, Suzy-hang-around

Nobody wants you around here and that's for sure

So get off our playground and stay away

That's all that we've got to say

Suzy-hang-around

 

Suzy went home to Mama's arms

Mama said "Look, she's never done you no harm

So get off her back and let her be

Why can't you play together in harmony?"

We really didn't know what to say

But as soon as she went away

We laughed and said

 

Look for a friend of your own, Suzy-hang-around

Better come back when you're grown, Suzy-hang-around

Nobody wants you around here and that's for sure

So get off our playground and stay away

That's all that we've got to say

Suzy-hang-around

 

Yes you'd better

Look for a friend of your own, Suzy-hang-around

Better come back when you're grown, Suzy-hang-around

Nobody wants you around here and that's for sure

So get off our playground and stay away

That's all that we've got to say

Suzy-hang-around

Thank You for the Music

 

Im nothing special, in fact Im a bit of a bore

If I tell a joke, youve probably heard it before

But I have a talent, a wonderful thing

cause everyone listens when I start to sing

Im so grateful and proud

All I want is to sing it out loud

 

So I say

Thank you for the music, the songs Im singing

Thanks for all the joy theyre bringing

Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty

What would life be?

Without a song or a dance what are we?

So I say thank you for the music

For giving it to me

 

Mother says I was a dancer before I could walk

She says I began to sing long before I could talk

And Ive often wondered, how did it all start?

Who found out that nothing can capture a heart

Like a melody can?

Well, whoever it was, Im a fan

 

So I say

Thank you for the music, the songs Im singing

Thanks for all the joy theyre bringing

Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty

What would life be?

Without a song or a dance what are we?

So I say thank you for the music

For giving it to me

 

Ive been so lucky, I am the girl with golden hair

I wanna sing it out to everybody

What a joy, what a life, what a chance!

 

So I say

Thank you for the music, the songs Im singing

Thanks for all the joy theyre bringing

Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty

What would life be?

Without a song or a dance what are we?

So I say thank you for the music

For giving it to me

 

That's Me

 

Are you sure you wanna hear more

What if I ain't worth the while?

Not the style you'd be looking for

If I'm sweet tonight

Things look different in the morning light

I'm jealous and I'm proud

If you hurt my feelings I'll cry out loud

I'm Carrie not-the-kind-of-girl-you'd-marry

That's me

 

Are you sure you wanna hear more

Would I be the one you seek

Mild and meek like the girl next door

Don't you realize?

I may be an angel in disguise

It's lonely to be free

But I'm not a man's toy, I'll never be

I'm Carrie not-the-kind-of-girl-you'd-marry

That's me

 

I don't believe in fairy-tales

Sweet nothings in my ear

But I do believe in sympathy

That's me, you see

 

Are you sure you wanna hear more

Won't you have a drink with me

Just to see you're not really sore

I can't help my ways

I'm just not the girl to hide my face

I'm Carrie not-the-kind-of-girl-you'd-marry

That's me

 

There's a special love

Like an eagle flying with a dove

I'll find it in the end

If I keep on searching, but until then

I'm Carrie not-the-kind-of-girl-you'd-marry

That's me

 

The Day Before You Came

 

Must have left my house at eight, because I always do

My train, Im certain, left the station just when it was due

I must have read the morning paper going into town

And having gotten through the editorial, no doubt I must have frowned

I must have made my desk around a quarter after nine

With letters to be read, and heaps of papers waiting to be signed

I must have gone to lunch at half past twelve or so

The usual place, the usual bunch

And still on top of this Im pretty sure it must have rained

The day before you came

 

I must have lit my seventh cigarette at half past two

And at the time I never even noticed I was blue

I must have kept on dragging through the business of the day

Without really knowing anything, I hid a part of me away

At five I must have left, theres no exception to the rule

A matter of routine, Ive done it ever since I finished school

The train back home again

Undoubtedly I must have read the evening paper then

Oh yes, Im sure my life was well within its usual frame

The day before you came

 

Must have opened my front door at eight oclock or so

And stopped along the way to buy some chinese food to go

Im sure I had my dinner watching something on tv

Theres not, I think, a single episode of dallas that I didnt see

I must have gone to bed around a quarter after ten

I need a lot of sleep, and so I like to be in bed by then I must have read a while

The latest one by marilyn french or something in that style

Its funny, but I had no sense of living without aim

The day before you came

 

And turning out the light

I must have yawned and cuddled up for yet another night

And rattling on the roof I must have heard the sound of rain

The day before you came

 

The King Has Lost His Crown

 

Ahhhaaaa......

 

I believe your new girl turned you down

And they say shes pushing you around

How does it feel, I guess it hurts your pride?

Tell me my friend how many nights you cried

 

Disaster and disgrace

The king has lost his crown

Suddenly

Hes clumsy like a clown

Aaaaah

The world is upside down

The king has lost his crown

 

Was it hard to step down from your throne?

And to know tonight youre all alone

Oh what a shame, you really want that girl

She doesnt care, still you just dream of her

 

Disaster and disgrace

The king has lost his crown

Suddenly

Hes clumsy like a clown

Ha-aaaahh

The world is upside down

The king has lost his crown

 

Disaster and disgrace

The word is all around

Suddenly

Hes clumsy like a clown

Aaaaaaa-ah

The world is upside down

The king has lost his crown

 

The Name Of The Game

 

Ive seen you twice, in a short time

Only a week since we started

It seems to me, for every time

Im getting more open-hearted

 

I was an impossible case

No-one ever could reach me

But I think I can see in your face

Theres a lot you can teach me

So I wanna know......

 

Whats the name of the game?

Does it mean anything to you?

Whats the name of the game?

Can you feel it the way I do?

Tell me please, cause I have to know

Im a bashful child, beginning to grow

 

And you make me talk

And you make me feel

And you make me show

What Im trying to conceal

If I trust in you, would you let me down?

Would you laugh at me, if I said I care for you?

Could you feel the same way too?

I wanna know......

The name of the game

 

I have no friends, no-one to see

And I am never invited

Now I am here, talking to you

No wonder I get excited

 

Your smile, and the sound of your voice

And the way you see through me

Got a feeling, you give me no choice

But it means a lot to me

So I wanna know......

 

Whats the name of the game?

(your smile and the sound of your voice)

Does it mean anything to you?

(got a feeling you give me no choice)

(but it means a lot)

Whats the name of the game?

(your smile and the sound of your voice)

Can you feel it the way I do?

Tell me please, cause I have to know

Im a bashful child, beginning to grow

 

And you make me talk

And you make me feel

And you make me show

What Im trying to conceal

If I trust in you, would you let me down?

Would you laugh at me, if I said I care for you?

Could you feel the same way too?

I wanna know......

Oh yes I wanna know......

 

The name of the game

(I was an impossible case)

Does it mean anything to you?

(but I think I can see in your face)

(that it means a lot)

Whats the name of the game?

(your smile and the sound of your voice)

Can you feel it the way I do?

(got a feeling you give me no choice)

(but it means a lot)

Whats the name of the game?

(I was an impossible case)

Does it mean anything to you?

(but I think I can see in your face)

(that it means a lot)

 

The Piper

 

They came from the hills

And they came from the valleys and the plains

They struggled in the cold

In the heat and the snow and in the rain

Came to hear him play

Play their minds away

 

Were all following a strange melody

Were all summoned by a tune

Were following the piper

And we dance beneath the moon

Were following the piper

And we dance beneath the moon for him

And we dance beneath the moon

 

They came from the south

From the west and the north and from the east

They waited for the man

Like a parish is waiting for the priest

Longed to hear him play

Play their minds away

 

Were all following a strange melody

Were all summoned by a tune

Were following the piper

And we dance beneath the moon

Were following the piper

And we dance beneath the moon for him

And we dance beneath the moon

 

He gave them a dream

He seduced everybody in the land

The fire in his eyes

And the fear was a weapon in his hand

So they let him play

Play their minds away

 

Were all following a strange melody

Were all summoned by a tune

Were following the piper

And we dance beneath the moon

Were following the piper

And we dance beneath the moon for him

And we dance beneath the moon

 

The Visitors

 

I hear the doorbell ring and suddenly the panic takes me

The sound so ominously tearing through the silence

I cannot move, Im standing

Numb and frozen

Among the things I love so dearly

The books, the paintings and the furniture

Help me...

 

The signals sounding once again and someone tries the doorknob

None of my friends would be so stupidly impatient

And they dont dare to come here

Anymore now

But how I loved our secret meetings

We talked and talked in quiet voices

Smiling...

 

Now I hear them moving muffled noises coming through the door I feel Im crackin up

Voices growing louder, irritation building and Im close to fainting crackin up

They must know by now Im in here trembling in a terror evergrowing crackin up

My whole world is falling, going crazy there is no escaping now, Im crackin up

 

These walls have witnessed all the anguish of humiliation

And seen the hope of freedom glow in shining faces

And now theyve come to take me

Come to break me

And yet it isnt unexpected

I have been waiting for these visitors

Help me...

 

Now I hear them moving muffled noises coming through the door I feel Im crackin up

Voices growing louder, irritation building and Im close to fainting crackin up

They must know by now Im in here trembling in a terror evergrowing crackin up

My whole world is falling, going crazy there is no escaping now, Im crackin up

 

Now I hear them moving muffled noises coming through the door I feel Im crackin up voices growing louder, irritation building and Im close to fainting crackin up

(I have been waiting for these visitors)

They must know by now Im in here trembling in a terror evergrowing crackin up

(I have been waiting for these visitors)

My whole world is falling, going crazy there is no escaping now, Im crackin up

(I have been waiting for these visitors)

Now I hear them moving muffled noises coming through the door I feel Im crackin up

(I have been waiting for these visitors)

Voices growing louder, irritation building and Im close to fainting crackin up

(I have been waiting for these visitors)

They must know by now Im in here trembling in a terror evergrowing crackin up

(I have been waiting for these visitors)

My whole world is falling, going crazy there is no escaping now, Im crackin up

The Way Old Friends Do

 

You and I can share the silence

Finding comfort together

The way old friends do

And after fights and words of violence

We make up with each other

The way old friends do

Times of joy and times of sorrow

We will always see it through

Oh I dont care what comes tomorrow

We can face it together

The way old friends do

 

(repeat)

 

We can face it together

The way old friends do

 

The Winner Takes It All

 

I dont wanna talk

About the things weve gone through

Though its hurting me

Now its history

Ive played all my cards

And thats what youve done too

Nothing more to say

No more ace to play

 

The winner takes it all

The loser standing small

Beside the victory

Thats her destiny

 

I was in your arms

Thinking I belonged there

I figured it made sense

Building me a fence

Building me a home

Thinking Id be strong there

But I was a fool

Playing by the rules

 

The gods may throw a dice

Their minds as cold as ice

And someone way down here

Loses someone dear

The winner takes it all

The loser has to fall

Its simple and its plain

Why should I complain.

 

But tell me does she kiss

Like I used to kiss you?

Does it feel the same

When she calls your name?

Somewhere deep inside

You must know I miss you

But what can I say

Rules must be obeyed

 

The judges will decide

The likes of me abide

Spectators of the show

Always staying low

The game is on again

A lover or a friend

A big thing or a small

The winner takes it all

 

I dont wanna talk

If it makes you feel sad

And I understand

Youve come to shake my hand

I apologize

If it makes you feel bad

Seeing me so tense

No self-confidence

But you see

The winner takes it all

The winner takes it all......

 

Tiger

 

The city is a jungle, you better take care

Never walk alone after midnight

If you dont believe it you better beware

Of me

 

I am behind you, Ill always find you, I am the tiger

People who fear me never go near me, I am the tiger

 

The city is a nightmare, a horrible dream

Some of us will dream it forever

Look around the corner and try not to scream

Its me

 

I am behind you, Ill always find you, I am the tiger

People who fear me never go near me, I am the tiger

 

Yellow eyes are glowing like the neon lights

Yellow eyes, the spotlights of the city nights

 

I am behind you, Ill always find you, I am the tiger

People who fear me never go near me, I am the tiger

 

The city is a prison, you never escape

Youre forever trapped in the alleys

Look into the shadows and youll see the shape

Of me

 

I am behind you, Ill always find you, I am the tiger

People who fear me never go near me, I am the tiger

 

Yellow eyes are glowing like the neon lights

Yellow eyes, the spotlights of the city nights

 

I am behind you, Ill always find you, I am the tiger

People who fear me never go near me, I am the tiger

And if I meet you, what if I eat you, I am the tiger

I am behind you, Ill always find you, I am the tiger

Tiger, tiger, tiger!

Two for the Price of One

 

He had what you might call a trivial occupation

He cleaned the platforms of the local railway station

With no romance in his life

Sometimes he wished he had a wife

He read the matrimonial advertising pages

The cries for help from different people, different ages

But they had nothing to say

At least not until the day

When something special he read

This is what it said:

 

If you dream of the girl for you

Then call us and get two for the price of one

Were the answer if you feel blue

So call us and get two for the price of one

If you dream of the girl for you

(if you are dreaming of someone who might be right for you)

Then call us and get two for the price of one

(why dont you call us and youll get two for the price of one)

Were the answer if you feel blue

(we may be the answers to your problem, a chance with we two)

So call us and get two for the price of one

(why dont you call us and youll get two for the price of one)

 

He called the number and a voice said, alice whiting

The voice was husky and it sounded quite exciting

He was amazed at his luck

The purest streak of gold hed struck

He said, i read your ad, it sounded rather thrilling

I think a meeting could be mutually fulfilling

Why dont we meet for a chat

The three of us in my flat

I cant forget what I read

This is what it said:

 

If you dream of the girl for you

Then call us and get two for the price of one

Were the answer if you feel blue

So call us and get two for the price of one

If you dream of the girl for you

(if you are dreaming of someone who might be right for you)

Then call us and get two for the price of one

(why dont you call us and youll get two for the price of one)

Were the answer if you feel blue

(we may be the answers to your problem, a chance with we two)

So call us and get two

(why dont you call us and youll get two)

For the price of one...

 

She said, im sure we must be perfect for each other

And if you doubt it youll be certain when you meet my mother

Under Attack

 

Dont know how to take it, dont know where to go

My resistances running low

And every day the hold is getting tighter and it troubles me so

(you know that Im nobodys fool)

Im nobodys fool and yet its clear to me

I dont have a strategy

Its just like taking candy from a baby and I think I must be

 

Under attack, Im being taken

About to crack, defences breaking

Wont somebody please have a heart

Come and rescue me now cause Im falling apart

Under attack, Im taking cover

Hes on my track, my chasing lover

Thinking nothings gonna stop him now

Should I want to, Im not sure I know how

 

This is getting crazy, I should tell him so

Really let my anger show

cause waiting at the answer to his questions is a definite "no!"

(Im kinda flattered I suppose)

Guess Im kind of flattered but Im scared as hell

Staring down the deepest well

I hardly dare to think of what could happen, where Id be if I fell

 

Under attack, Im being taken

About to crack, defences breaking

Wont somebody please have a heart

Come and rescue me now cause Im falling apart

Under attack, Im taking cover

He saw my track, my chasing lover

Thinking nothings gonna stop him now

Should I want to, Im not sure, I wont know how

 

Under attack, Im being taken

About to crack, defences breaking

Wont somebody see and save a heart

Come and rescue me now cause Im falling apart

Under attack, Im taking cover

He saw my track, my chasing lover

Thinking nothings gonna stop him now

Should I want to, Im not sure, I wont know how

 

Voulez Vous

 

People everywhere

A sense of expectation hanging in the air

Giving out a spark

Your eyes like a flash of lightning

The answer to all desire

And Im gonna tame you, wild thing

Youd better watch out

I said youd better watch out

Watch out

Waterloo (English)

 

Verse 1

My, My. At Waterloo Napoleon did surrender.

Oh Yeah, and I have met my destiny in quite a similar way.

The history book on the shelf is always repeating itself

 

Chorus

Waterloo, I was defeated, you won the war.

Waterloo, promised to love you forevermore.

Waterloo, couldn't escape if I wanted to.

Waterloo, knowing my fate is to be with you.

Wa Wa Wa Wa Waterloo finally facing my Waterloo.

 

Verse 2

My, My. I tried to hold you back, but you were stronger.

Oh Yeah, and now it seems my only chance is givin' up the fight.

And how could I ever refuse; I feel like I win when I lose.

 

Repeat Chorus

 

So how could I ever refuse I feel like I win when I lose.

 

Repeat Chorus and Fade

 

What About Livingstone

 

Went to buy me a paper at the local news-stand

And then I heard them laugh and say

Look, theyre gonna go flying way up to the moon now

Hey, whats it good for anyway?

So I said

Fellas, like to ask you a thing if I may

 

What about Livingstone?

What about all those men?

Who have sacrificed their lives to lead the way

Tell me, wasnt it worth the while

Travelling up the Nile

Putting themselves on test

Didnt that help the rest?

Wasnt it worth it then?

What about Livingstone?

 

And all of those fellas at the local news-stand

Didnt know what to answer or what to say

So I told them about him, that he was just like

One of those spacemen in his way

And if you laugh at them

Then theres only a thing I can say

 

What about Livingstone?

What about all those men?

Who have sacrificed their lives to lead the way

Tell me, wasnt it worth the while

Travelling up the nile

Putting themselves on test

Didnt that help the rest?

Wasnt it worth it then?

 

What about Livingstone?

(didnt he do it, well didnt he? )

What about all those men?

(didnt he do it, well didnt he? )

Who have sacrificed their lives to lead the way

Tell me, wasnt it worth the while

(didnt he do it, well didnt he? )

Travelling up the Nile

(didnt he do it? )

Putting themselves on test

Didnt that help the rest?

(didnt that help them? well, didnt it? )

Wasnt it worth it then?

What about Livingstone?

(didnt he do it, well didnt he? )

What about all those men?

(didnt he do it, well didnt he? )

When All Is Said And Done

 

Here's to us one more toast and then we'll pay the bill

Deep inside both of us can feel the autumn chill

Birds of passage, you and me

We fly instinctively

When the summer's over and the dark clouds hide the sun

Neither you nor I'm to blame when all is said and done

 

In our lives we have walked some strange and lonely treks

Slightly worn but dignified and not too old for sex

We're still striving for the sky

No taste for humble pie

Thanks for all your generous love and thanks for all the fun

Neither you nor I'm to blame when all is said and done

 

It's so strange when you're down and lying on the floor

How you rise, shake your head, get up and ask for more

Clear-headed and open-eyed

With nothing left to try

Standing calmly at the crossroads,no desire to run

There's no hurry any more when all is said and done

 

Standing calmly at the crossroads,no desire to run

There's no hurry any more when all is said and done

 

When I Kissed the Teacher

 

Everybody screamed when I kissed the teacher

And they must have thought they dreamed when I kissed the teacher

All my friends at school

They had never seen the teacher blush, he looked like a fool

Nearly petrified cos he was taken by surprise

When I kissed the teacher

Couldnt quite believe his eyes, when I kissed the teacher

My whole class went wild

As I held my breath, the world stood still, but then he just smiled

I was in the seventh heaven when I kissed the teacher

 

One of these days

Gonna tell him I dream of him every night

One of these days

Gonna show him I care, gonna teach him a lesson alright

 

I was in a trance when I kissed the teacher

Suddenly I took the chance when I kissed the teacher

Leaning over me, he was trying to explain the laws of geometry

And I couldnt help it, I just had to kiss the teacher

 

One of these days

Gonna tell him I dream of him every night

One of these days

Gonna show him I care, gonna teach him a lesson alright

 

What a crazy day, when I kissed the teacher

All my sense had flown away when I kissed the teacher

My whole class went wild

As I held my breath, the world stood still, but then he just smiled

I was in the seventh heaven when I kissed the teacher

(I wanna hug, hug, hug him)

When I kissed the teacher

(I wanna hug, hug him)

When I kissed the teacher

(I wanna hug, hug, hug him)

When I kissed the teacher

(I wanna hug, hug him)

When I kissed the teacher

(I wanna hug, hug, hug him)

 

White Sombrero

 

Put on your white sombrero

Saddle your horse my dear

And ride off into the sunset

You better go

For there is no

Place for you here

Like an old fashioned hero

You stand before me

Oooh, Oh you think our life is a movie

My world is real

I live and feel

And I can do

Without you

 

Put on your white sombrero

Your red bandanna too

Think of this day as a showdown

Goodbye my friend

This is the end

For me and you

 

Now we are both aquerdo

Don't show your feelings

I, I'll cry while you're disappearing

Into the night

All dressed in white

Unchained and free

Without me

 

Put on your white sombrero

Like all the cowboys do

Go find a sweet señorita

Somebody meek

Who'll never speak

Harshly to you

 

You're such a caballero

Oh never bending

I, I want someone who will take me

Just as I am

I need a man

Who is in rhyme

With this time

 

Oh you'd never take me

Just as I am

I need a man

Who is in rhyme

With this time

 

Why Did It Have to Be Me

 

When you were lonely, you needed a man

Someone to lean on, well I understand

It's only natural

But why did it have to be me?

Nights can be empty, nights can be cold

So you were looking for someone to hold

That's only natural

But why did it have to be me?

 

I was so lonesome, I was blue

I couldn't help it, it had to be you and I

Always thought you knew the reason why

I only wanted a little love affair

Now I can see you are beginning to care

But baby, believe me

It's better to forget me

 

Men are toys in the game that you play

When you get tired, you throw them away

That's only natural

But why did it have to be me?

Falling in love with a woman like you

Happens so quickly, there's nothing to do

It's only natural

But why did it have to be me?

 

I was so lonesome, I was blue

I couldn't help it, it had to be you and I

Always thought you knew the reason why

I only wanted a little love affair

Now I can see you are beginning to care

But baby, believe me

It's better to forget me

 

                                                              Y        

 

You Owe Me One                           

 

Now there's a shadow passing over our faces

Doubt forever in our hearts

And in a while we'll have to pick up the traces

We won't find the missing parts.

Buy me a ticket I'll go to the Bahamas

I need a rest from our petty little dramas

Yes I really do

 

Aha um hum

Look what you've done

I'm missing all the fun,

Baby you owe me one.

Aha un hum

It's my turn to run

A chance to see the sun,

Baby you owe me one.

 

I wasn't ready for this kind of intrusion

I was taken by surprise

Now both of us are in a state of confusion

Hesitation on our hearts.

Something unwanted has entered our existence

I think it's better to view it from a distance

Yes I really do

 

Aha um hum

Look what you've done

I'm missing all the fun,

Baby you owe me one.

Aha un hum

It's my turn to run

A chance to see the sun,

Baby you owe me one.
