There's A Kind Of Hush

There's a kind of hush all over the world tonight
All over the world you can hear the sounds of lovers in love
You know what I mean
Just the two of us and nobody else in sight
There's nobody else and I'm feeling good just holding you tight

So listen very carefully
Closer now and you will see what I mean
It isn't a dream
The only sound that you will hear
Is when I whisper in your ear
I love you forever and ever

There's a kind of hush all over the world tonight
All over the world you can hear the sounds of lovers in love
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

So listen very carefully
Closer now and you will see what I mean
It isn't a dream
The only sound that you will hear
Is when I whisper in your ear
I love you forever and ever

There's a kind of hush all over the world tonight
All over the world people just like us are fallin' in love
Yeah, they're fallin' in love
Hush, they're fallin' in love
Hush

A Must to Avoid

She's a must to avoid
A complete impossibility
She's a must to avoid
Better take it from me

You'll think she's a prize at the start
But take my advice, play it smart
She's nothin' but trouble
Better cut out on the double
Before she gets into your heart

She's a must to avoid
A complete impossibility
She's a must to avoid
Better take it from me

When you stare into her pretty blue eyes
There's no way to see through her disguise
But don't try to love her 'cause you'll quickly discover
You're trapped in the web of her lies

She's a must to avoid
A complete impossibility
She's a must to avoid
Better take it from me

Her lips look inviting it's true
But lots of other guys have felt like you do
She'll build up your hopes and when you need her the most
That's when she'll say goodbye to you

She's a must to avoid
A complete impossibility
She's a must to avoid
Better take it from me


East West

East West over the ocean
Perpetual motion, travelling around
No rest, singing and playing
Night out and day in, doing the rounds
What a great life it must seem
(what a great life it must seem)

Swell joints, everything classy
Nothing that's passť, only the best
Lush girls ogling and eyeing
Crying and sighing, this is success
What a great life it must seem
(what a great life it must seem)

But when I hear young voices singing out
The bells at home come ringing out
When I think all alone
When I think of my home

Mom, Dad all round the fire
In festive attire, keeping the day
Aunts, kids, all the relations
Congratulations, this is success
What a great life it must seem
(what a great life it must seem)

But when I hear young voices singin' out
The bells at home come ringing out
When I feel all alone
Then I long for my home


Can't You Hear My Heartbeat?

Every time I see you lookin' my way
Baby, baby, can't you hear my heartbeat?
In the car or walking down the highway
Baby, baby, can't you hear my heartbeat?

When you move up closer to me
I get a feelin' that's ooo-wee
Can't you hear the poundin' of my heartbeat
'cause you're the one I love, you're the one I love

When I feel you put your arms around me
Baby, baby, can't you hear my heartbeat?
Then I'm glad, I'm mighty glad I found you
Baby, baby, can't you hear my heartbeat?

When you asked me to meet your Ma
I knew that baby, we'd be going far
Can't you hear the poundin' of my heartbeat?
'cause you're the one I love, you're the one I love


All my friends are cryin' out to meet you
Baby, baby, can't you hear my heartbeat?
Now's the time to go and see the preacher
Baby, baby, can't you hear my heartbeat?

Wedding bells are gonna chime
Baby, baby, you're gonna be mine
Can't you hear the poundin' of my heartbeat
'cause you're the one I love, you're the one I love

Baby, baby, can't you hear my heartbeat?
Baby, baby, can't you hear my heartbeat?
Baby, baby, can't you hear my heartbeat?

No Milk Today

No milk today, my love has gone away
The bottle stands forlorn, a symbol of the dawn
No milk today, it seems a common sight
But people passing by don't know the reason why

How could they know just what this message means
The end of my hopes, the end of all my dreams
How could they know the palace there had been
Behind the door where my love reigned as queen

No milk today, it wasn't always so
The company was gay, we'd turn night into day

But all that's left is a place dark and lonely
A terraced house in a mean street back of town
Becomes a shrine when I think of you only
Just two up two down

No milk today, it wasn't always so
The company was gay, we'd turn night into day
As music played the faster did we dance
We felt it both at once, the start of our romance

How could they know just what this message means
The end of my hopes, the end of all my dreams
How could they know a palace there had been
Behind the door where my love reigned as queen

No milk today, my love has gone away
The bottle stands forlorn, a symbol of the dawn

But all that's left is a place dark and lonely
A terraced house in a mean street back of town
Becomes a shrine when I think of you only
Just two up two down

No milk today, my love has gone away
The bottle stands forlorn, a symbol of the dawn
No milk today, it seems a common sight
But people passing by don't know the reason why

How could they know just what this message means
The end of my hopes, the end of all my dreams
How could they know a palace there had been
Behind the door where my love reigned as queen

No milk today, it wasn't always so
The company was gay, we'd turn night into day

But all that's left is a place dark and lonely
A terraced house in a mean street back of town
Oh all that's left is a place dark and lonely
A terraced house in a mean street back of town
Oh all that's left is a place dark and lonely
A terraced house in a mean street back of town


Dandy

Dandy, Dandy
Where you gonna go now?
Who you gonna run to?
All your little life
You're chasin' all the girls
They can't resist your smile
Uh-hmm, they long for

Dandy, Dandy
Chattin' up the ladies
Ticklin' their fancy
Pourin' out your charms
To meet your own demands
And you turn it off at will
Huh-oh, they long for

Dandy, Dandy
Knockin' on the back door
Climbin' through the window
Hubby's gone away
And while the cat's away
The mice are gonna play
Uh-hmm, you low-down

Dandy, Dandy, Dandy

Dandy, you know you're moving much too fast
And Dandy, you know you can't escape the past
Look around you and see the people settle down
And when you're old and grey
You will remember what they said
That two girls are too many,
Three's a crowd and four you're dead

Oh Dandy, Dandy
When you gonna give up?
Are you feelin' old now?
You always will be free
And you need no sympathy
A bachelor you will stay
And Dandy you're all right
You're all right
You're all right

Leaning On A Lamp Post

I'm leaning on the lamp
Maybe you think I look a tramp
Or maybe you think I'm round to steal a car
But no, I'm not a crook
And if you think that's what I look
I'll tell you why and what my motives are

I'm leaning on the lamp post at the corner of the street
In case a certain little lady comes by
Oh me, oh my
In case a certain little lady comes by

Oh, she's wonderful, she's marvelous
She's fabulous, she's beautiful
And anyone can understand why
I'm leaning on the lamp post at the corner of the street
In case a certain little lady comes by

She doesn't always get away
She cannot always get away
But anyway I know that she'll try
Oh me, oh my
I hope that little lady comes by

She's not the kind of girl to be late for
But this one I'd break any date for
I won't have to ask what she's late for
She'd never leave me flat
She's not a girl like that

'onderful, she's marvelous
She's fabulous, she's beautiful
And anyone can understand why
I'm leaning on the lamp post at the corner of the street
In case a certain little lady comes by

I'm leaning on the lamp post at the corner of the street
In case a certain little lady comes by
Oh me, oh my
In case a certain little lady comes by

Oh, she's wonderful, she's marvelous
She's fabulous, she's beautiful
And anyone can understand why
I'm leaning on the lamp post at the corner of the street
In case a certain little lady comes by



This Door Swings Both Ways

Everyones life is bittersweet
It's a door that opens wide
And no man can call himself complete
Till he's seen it from both sides

This door swings both ways
It's marked 'In' and 'Out'
Some days you'll want to cry
And some days you will shout

This door swings both ways
It goes back and forth
In comes a southern breeze
Or a cold wind from the north

This door swings both ways
Lets in joy and pain
In comes the morning sun
And then the evening rain

This door swings both ways
Lets in dark and light
Every day you make the choice
To let in wrong or right

When shadows fall
You must prepare yourself for sunshine
For everything there is an end
And so my friend you must be brave

This door swings both ways
Which one will it be
Will we live in happiness
Or dwell in misery

This door swings both ways
Lets in earth and sky
Make the most of livin'
If you're not prepared to die
Make the most of livin'
If you're not prepared to die

Just A Little Bit Better

He may send you flowers baby every single day
Buy you fancy clothes from Paris
And have sweet things to say
But I can give you love, sweet sweet love
Now ain't that just a little bit better
Uh-ho-ho, uh-ho-ho, uh-ho-ho

He'll take you to nightclubs in a shiny limousine
Buy you furs and diamond bracelets
Make you look just like a queen
But I can give you love, sweet sweet love
Now ain't that just a little bit better
Uh-ho-ho, uh-ho-ho, uh-ho-ho

Love, love, love is what I could give ya
True, true love as long as I may live


But I can give you love, sweet sweet love
Now ain't that just a little bit better
Uh-ho-ho, uh-ho-ho, uh-ho-ho

Love, love, love is what I could give ya
True, true love as long as I may live

Well, he may want to buy a fancy mansion on a hill
Will you live with him forever
Baby that ain't such a thrill
'cause I can give you love, sweet sweet love
Now ain't that just a little bit better
Uh-ho-ho, uh-ho-ho, uh-ho-ho


Listen People

Listen people to what I say
I say everybody's got to have their day

And don't you know that
Everybody's got to love somebody sometime
Everybody's got to win a heart
Everybody's got to love somebody sometime
When you do, I hope you never part

I once found love, found love just like you
But then he came, he might come to you

And don't you know that
Everybody's got to lose somebody sometime
But everybody can part
Everybody's got to lose somebody sometime
So take care that you don't lose your heart

Take my advice and you'll always find
You'll be happy all of the time
Take my advice and you will see
You'll be happy as you can be

Listen people to what I say
I say everybody's got to have their day

And don't you know that
Everybody's got to love somebody sometime
Everybody's got to win a heart
Everybody's got to love somebody sometime
When you do, I hope you never part
You never part
Listen people
Listen people

Hold On

Hold on, hold on

You've got a girl who really loves you
(you've got a girl who really cares)
She'll do anything you ask her to
Yet you treat her wrong
Oh you just string her along
Brother, if I were in your shoes

I would hold on, hold on, hold on tight
And make the whole world know she's mine
I would hold on, hold on, with all my might
A love like hers is very hard to find

She does her best to make you happy
(she always does her very best)
You do your best to make her blue
Buddy, you've got it made
But you'd rather go and play
I know one thing for sure, if I were you

I would hold on, hold on, hold on tight
And make the whole world know she's mine
I would hold on, hold on, with all my might
A love like hers is very hard to find

She's always there each time you need her
(each time you need her she is there)
She gives her love so willingly
But you just don't care
You know that she'll be there
How I wish she'd felt that way about me

I would hold on, hold on, hold on tight
And make the whole world know she's mine
I would hold on, hold on, with all my might
A love like hers is very hard to find

Hold on, hold on


The End Of The World

Why does the sun go on shining
Why does the sea rush to shore
Don't they know it's the end of the world
When you don't love me anymore

Why does my heart go on beating
Why do these eyes of mine cry
Don't they know it's the end of the world
It ended when you said goodbye

I wake up in the morning and I wonder
Why everything's the same as it was
And I can't understand, no I can't understand
Why life goes on the way it does

Why do the birds go on singing
Why do the stars shine above
Don't they know it's the end of the world
It ended when I lost your love

Don't they know it's the end of the world
It ended when you said goodbye


What Is Wrong, What Is Right

She's stroking her cat with her silken fingers
A would-be charmer whose life's incomplete
I'm working so hard to try and get to know her
Her parents say who she sees and who she meets

Always on her own
Walking through the city
Doesn't want to know
If anyone should try to pick her up
She'll put them down

She only drinks at the dining table
She's not allowed to stay up late at night
Her only joy is the riding stable
Her parents say what is wrong and what is right

Always on her own
Walking through the city
Doesn't want to know
If anyone should try to pick her up
She'll put them down

The day will come when she'll see the time she's wasted
She's twenty-one and without their guiding light
There's so many things that she's never tasted
Who'll be there to say what is wrong and what is right

I'm Into Something Good

Woke up this mornin' feelin' fine
There's somethin' special on my mind
Last night I met a new girl in the neighbourhood, whoa yeah
Somethin' tells me I'm into something good
(Somethin' tells me I'm into somethin')

She's the kind of girl who's not too shy
And I can tell I'm her kind of guy
She danced close to me like I hoped she would
(she danced with me like I hoped she would)
Somethin' tells me I'm into something good
(Somethin' tells me I'm into somethin')

We only danced for a minute or two
But then she stuck close to me the whole night through
Can I be fallin' in love
She's everthing I've been dreamin' of
She's everthing I've been dreamin' of

I walked her home and she held my hand
I knew it couldn't be just a one-night stand
So I asked to see her next week and she told me I could
(I asked to see her and she told me I could)
Somethin' tells me I'm into something good
(Somethin' tells me I'm into somethin')
(Somethin' tells me I'm into somethin', ahhh)

I walked her home and she held my hand
I knew it couldn't be just a one-night stand
So I asked to see her next week and she told me I could
(I asked to see her and she told me I could)
Somethin' tells me I'm into something good
(somethin' tells me I'm into somethin')
Somethin' tells me I'm into something good
(somethin' tells me I'm into somethin')
To something good, oh yeah, something good
(somethin' tells me I'm into somethin')
To something good, something good, something good


Mrs. Brown You've Got A Lovely Daughter

Mrs. Brown you've got a lovely daughter
Girls as sharp as her are somethin' rare
But it's sad, she doesn't love me now
She's made it clear enough it ain't no good to pine

She wants to return those things I bought her
Tell her she can keep them just the same
Things have changed, she doesn't love me now
She's made it clear enough it ain't no good to pine

Walkin' about, even in a crowd, well
You'll pick her out, makes a bloke feel so proud

If she finds that I've been round to see you (round to see you)
Tell her that I'm well and feelin' fine (feelin' fine)
Don't let on, don't say she's broke my heart
I'd go down on my knees but it's no good to pine

Walkin' about, even in a crowd, well
You'll pick her out, makes a bloke feel so proud

If she finds that I've been round to see you (round to see you)
Tell her that I'm well and feelin' fine (feelin' fine)
Don't let on, don't say she's broke my heart
I'd go down on my knees but it's no good to pine

Mrs. Brown you've got a lovely daughter (lovely daughter)
Mrs. Brown you've got a lovely daughter (lovely daughter)
Mrs. Brown you've got a lovely daughter (lovely daughter)
Mrs. Brown you've got a lovely daughter (lovely daughter)


Silhouettes

Took a walk and passed your house late last night
All the shades were pulled and drawn way down tight
From within, the dim light cast two silhouettes on the shade
Oh what a lovely couple they made

Put his arms around your waist, held you tight
Kisses I could almost taste in the night
Wondered why I'm not the guy who's silhouette's on the shade
I couldn't hide the tears in my eyes

Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah...
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah...

Lost control and rang your bell, I was sore
Let me in or else I'll beat down your door
When two strangers who have been two silhouettes on the shade
Said to myself "you're on the wrong block"

Rushed out to your house with wings on my feet
Loved you like I'd never loved you my sweet
Vowed that you and I would be two silhouettes on the shade
All of our days, two silhouettes on the shade

Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah...
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah...


Wonderful World

Don't know much about history
Don't know much biology
Don't know much about science books
Don't know much about the french I took
But I do know that I love you
And I know that if you loved me too
What a wonderful world this would be

Don't know much about geography
Don't know much trigonometry
Don't know much about algebra
Don't know what a slide rule is for
But I know that one and one is two
And if this one could be with you
What a wonderful world this would be

Now I don't claim to be an A student
But I'm tryin' to be
Oh maybe by being an A student, baby
I can win your love for me

Don't know much about history
Don't know much biology
Don't know much about science books
Don't know much about the french I took
But I do know that I love you
And I know that if you loved me too
What a wonderful world this would be

But I do know that I love you
And I know that if you loved me too
What a wonderful world this would be

Big Man

Big man yesterday
but boy you ought to see me now
well I talked big yesterday
but boy you ought to see me now
I bragged too long that your love was strong
there'd never be another guy
but you said more when you whispered your goodbye
I was a big man yesterday
but boy you ought to see me now
I said that I was through with you
that I didn't need you anyhow
I said I didn't need you then
but boy you ought to see me now
those bragging words that you were mine
of that there was no doubt
some tempting lessons of my life walked out
half my life left me yesterday
and boy you oght to see me now
I couldn't see it yesterday
but now I know it's true
the only thing that made me big was you
I was a big man yesterday
but boy you ought to see me now
if you could only see me now
if you would only see me now
if you would only see me now
if you could only see me now

Don't Go Out Into The Rain

Don't go out into the rain
You're gonna melt, sugar
Oh, no come and sit here by the fire
For a spell, sugar
Oh, ho, please take your shoes off and make yourself comfortable
The weather's miserable and you're so kissable
It's getting late
Why don't you stay
It's after one
We've just begun
She's got to go

Oh no no no please don't go
Don't go out into the rain
You're gonna melt, sugar
Oh, no, come and sit here by the fire for a speel, sugar
Oh, ho, the house is ours now that everybody's gone
And while the telly's on we should be having fun
It's getting late
Why don't you wait
It's after one
We've just begun
She's got to go

Oh no no no please don't go
Don't go out into the rain you're gonna melt sugar
Oh, no, come and sit here by the fire for a spell sugar
Oh ho, it's getting late
Why don't you wait
It's after one
We've just begun
She's got to go
Oh no no no, don't be insane

God Knows

Out of the pages of books that I read
I can recall that somewhere someone said
If you don't succeed
Try again

So I'm comin' to you with my heart in my hands
Usin' every ounce of strength I can
Don't turn me away
Listen what I've got to say

Cuz I live and breathe you
God knows how much I need you
And I'll never leave you
God knows I love you

Too insecure as lovers we failed
The princess and the white knight lived in fairy tales
or so that story goes

We read so right from the very start
Now here we are both with broken hearts
Let's not part this way

Cuz I live and breathe you
God knows how much I need you
And I'll never leave you
God knows I love you

Cuz time ran away
And took you by the hand
If I can't bring you back
Maybe, maybe time can

Cuz I live and breathe you
God knows how much I need you
And I'll never leave you
God knows I love you

God knows I need you
God knows I want you
God knows I love you

Jezebel

If ever a devil was born
without a pair of horns it was you
Jezebel it was you
if ever a pair of eyes promised paradise
it was you
Jezebel it was you
if ever a devil's plan was made to torment man,
deceiving me, grieving me, leaving me blue
Jezebel it was you
if ever a devil was born
without a pair of horns it was you
Jezebel it was you
if ever a pair of eyes promised paradise
it was you
Jezebel it was you
if ever a devil's plan was made to torment man,
deceiving me, grieving me, leaving me blue,
Jezebel it was you
Be better had I never known a lover such as you
forsaking dreams and all
for the sirens call of your charms
Jezebel
if ever a devil's plan was made to torment man
deceiving me, grieving me, leaving me blue
Jezebel it was you
night and day
every way
oh Jezebel
Jezebel
Jezebel

Last Bus Home

You've walked out on the in crowd
With a girl that you've just met
For a little late night livin' on your own
And you want to dance till morning with
This piece of fairer sex
And she says it's late and wants to head for home
And it's all part of the last bus home
In a gigantic green house where the late night buses stop
You'll be waiting for another half an hour
With a man dressed in a raincoat
With a piece of string around
And a man whose dressed in mohair claims his car has broken down
And it's all part of the last bust home
For a moment you must swallow your pride
Reach in your pocket for the money for your ride
Watched by a thousand eyes
This girl you've met tonight won't even steal a kiss
With a rocking, jogging motion you're about to take a ride
On a public corporation's road domain
With the silver rails surrounding
And the smoke that fills the air
And a weary bus conductor climbs the stairs
And it's all part of the last bus
All part of the last bus home

Little Boy Sad

You've been lyin'
Been untrue
Now they call me
Little boy blue
Someday baby you're gonna find
Nobody in the world's gonna give you lovin'
As sweet as mine
You've been sneakin'
Doin' me dirt
Now they call me
Little boy hurt
Someday baby you're gonna find
Nobody in the world's gonna give you lovin'
As sweet as mine
Little boy blue
That's my name
Little boy sad
You're to blame
You've been cheatin'
Been untrue
Now they call me
Little boy blue
Someday baby you're gonna find
Nobody in the world's gonna give you lovin'
As sweet as mine
Nobody in the world's gonna give you lovin'
As sweet as mine
Nobody in the world's gonna give you lovin'
As sweet as mine
Nobody in the world's gonna give you lovin'
As sweet as mine

Moonshine Man

Moonshine, shadows, homemade wine
Sleepy time moon dreams, and blue beams and new skemes
Glad time, night waves, whirling by
Memories of moonshine and our times and slow signs
Moonshine man come feed me some of your souvenirs

Mr. Moonshine Man
I'm your greatest fan
Come on feed me now and whenever you can
Mr. Moonshine Man

Moonshine, shadows, homemade wine
Sleepy time moon dreams and blue beams and new schemes
Moonshine man come feed me some of your souvenirs
And I'll be gone
Mr. Moonshine Man I'm your greatest fan
Come on and feed me now and whenever you can
Mr. Moonshine Man, Mr. Moonshine Man
Mr. Moonshine Man, Mr. Moonshine Man
Mr. Moonshine Man, Mr. Moonshine Man

My Reservation's Been Confirmed

Speed this locomotive on the railroad line

Oh You Pretty Things

Oh you pretty things
Don't you know you're driving your Mama's and Papa's insane
Oh you pretty things
Don't you know you're driving your Mama's and Papa's insane
Let me make it plain
You gotta make way for the Homo Superior

Wake up you sleepy heads
Put on some clothes shake up your beds
Put another log on the fire for me
I need some breakfast and coffee

I look out my window and what do I see
A crack in the sky and a hand reaching down to me
All the strangers came today
And it looks as though they're here to stay

What are we coming to
There's no room for me no fun for you
I think about a world to come
Where the books were found by the golden one

Written in pain, written in awe
By the puzzled man who questioned what we were here for
All the strangers came today
And it looks as though they're here to stay

Oh you pretty things
Don't you know you're driving your Mama's and Papa's insane
Oh you pretty things
Don't you know you're driving your Mama's and Papa's insane
Let me make it plain
You gotta make way for the Homo Superior

Look at your children
Their faces in golden rays
Don't kid yourself they belong to you
They're the start of the coming race

The earth is a beast we've finished our news
Homo sapiens have outgrown their use
All the strangers came today
And it looks as though they're here to stay

Oh you pretty things
Don't you know you're driving your Mama's and Papa's insane
Oh you pretty things
Don't you know you're driving your Mama's and Papa's insane
Let me make it plain
You gotta make way for the Homo Superior

Oh you pretty things
Don't you know you're driving your Mama's and Papa's insane
Oh you pretty things
Don't you know you're driving your Mama's and Papa's insane
Let me make it plain
You gotta make way for the Homo Superior

The Angels Are Crying (In Heaven Tonight)

It was gettin' dark
Across the park
When I saw her sittin' there
A little girl who must have lost her way

The night was clear and I could see the tears
Welled up in her eyes
She didn't say a word
She just kept starin' at the sky

I asked her why she was so sad
And did my best to make her laugh
And when she finally spoke
Her words took me by surprise

She said
The angels are cryin' in heaven tonight
Their hearts are so heavy
They've got tears in their eyes
The angels are cryin' in heaven tonight
Cuz they can't understand why
We can't find the light

She said they cry for all the lies
We live with every day
And for all the children
Sleepin' in the rain

For the noble dreams that somehow seem
To always be in vain
And for the gentle hearts who still believe
In the miracle of faith

It seems so strange that a little girl
Could know so much about a troubled world
But now I see she had to be
An angel in disguise

And
The angels are cryin' in heaven tonight
Their hearts are so heavy
They've got tears in their eyes
The angels are cryin' in heaven tonight
Cuz they can't understand why
We can't find the light

And
The angels are cryin' in heaven tonight
Their hearts are so heavy
They've got tears in their eyes
The angels are cryin' in heaven tonight
Cuz they can't understand why
We can't find the light

Where Were You When I Needed You

Don't bother crying
Don't bother calling
It's all over now
There's no use in stalling
The love I once felt
I don't feel anymore for you
This time I'll even open the door for you
You walked out when I was down
Well now I'm well off
And look, look whose comin' round
Where were you when I needed you
Where were you when I wanted you
Where were you when I need you
Where
You're looking good, it's hard to fight it
But no use explain'
I've already decided
That goin' with you
Is worse than without you
I won't spend a lifetime worryin' about you
When things got bad
You disappeared
But I'm back on my feet
And look, look whose standin' there
Where were you when I neeed you
Where were you when I wanted you
Where were you when I needed you
Where
You were so young
And you were so wild
I knew you were nobody's innocent child
That first day I saw you
You really got to me
I thought I could change you
What good did it do me
When times got rought
Ah, you would't wait
Well now you're trippin' back
And babe, babe it's too late
Where were you when I needed you
Where were you when I wanted you
Where were you when I needed you
Where, Where, Where

BUS STOP

Bus stop, wet day, she's there
I said please share my umbrella
Bus stop, bus goes, she stays, love grows
under my umbrella
All that summer we enjoyed it
Wind and rain and shine
That umbrella we employed it
By August she was mine

Every morning I would see her
Waiting at the stop
Sometimes she'd shop and she would show me
What she bought
Other people stared as if we were both quite insane
Someday my name and hers are going to be the same

That's the way the whole thing started
Silly but it's true
I'm thinking of a sweet romance
Beginning in their queue
Came the sun, the ice was melting
No more sheltering now
How nice to think that that umbrella
Led me to a vow

Every morning I would see her waiting
At the stop
Sometimes she'd shop and she would
Show me what she bought
All the peopled stared as if we were both quite insane
Someday my name and hers are going to be the same

Bus stop, wet day, she's there
I said please share my umbrella
Bus stop, bus goes, she stays, love grows
Under my umbrella
All that summer we enjoyed it
Wind and rain and shine
That umbrella we employed it
By August she was mine.

HERE COMES THE STAR

Look at me now
I'm the lonliest guy in the world
People say "He's a star
And he's sure to go far
Ain't he pretty!"

Look at me now
Do they know for the love of that girl
I would give all I have
For a moment of love

Saying here comes the star
He's the idol of all the world (step aside)
Here comes the star
What he'd give if that girl would come
And share his lonliness. Mmm

There was a time
We would wander down love's avenue
Sharing moments together
That should last forever

Then came the time
Saw my name up in lights and you knew
There'd be no time together
Now you're gone, still they say

Here comes the star
He's the idol of all the world (step aside)
Here comes the star
What he'd give if that girl would come
And share his lonliness

Now the stage is bare
Knowing you're not there
I'd give it all away
Just to hear you say "I love you"

Here comes the star
He's the idol of all the world
Here comes the star
What he'd give if that girl would come

Here comes the star
He's the idol of all the world
Here comes the star
What he'd give if that girl would come

I CAN TAKE OR LEAVE YOUR LOVING

I don't need her
Don't need her kind of heartaches and pain
She's gonna have to see
Things now can never be the same again

I won't miss her
Well maybe I'll miss her once in a while
She thinks I'm gonna die
Now that she's said goodbye
But she's so wrong, I'll just smile

Baby, baby don't you believe it
When it comes to your loving I can take it or leave it
Baby, baby don't you believe it
When it comes to your loving I can take it or leave it
I can take or leave your loving
I can take or leave your loving

I'm not sorry
I still think we're better apart
She says she's gonna see
A day when there's gonna be a change of heart

Baby, baby don't you believe it
When it comes to your loving I can take it or leave it
Baby, baby don't you believe it
When it comes to your loving I can take it or leave it
I can take or leave your loving
I can take or leave your loving

MUSEUM

I drink sweet wine for breakfast
I slept but an hour or so
I smiled a little in the silence
Deciding on where to go
Meet me under the whale
At the natural history museum
I think that's what she said
A little bit said about having to leave them
Yawning in the sun
It's like a child I run
Don't do it if you don't want to
I wouldn't do a thing like that
Now don't do it if you don't want to
I wouldn't do a thing like that
So little do you think of beauty
Isn't it a shame what-ho
Maybe you should go get your power ring
And make all your troubles go
There she stood in drag
Looking cool in astrakhan
She's lookin' a little wiped out
She said I looked like Peter Pan
And yawning in the sun
It's like a child I run
Don't do it if you don't want to
I wouldn't do a thing like that
Now don't do it if you don't want to
I wouldn't do a thing like that
Now don't do it if you don't want to
I wouldn't do a thing like that
Now don't do it if you don't want to
I wouldn't do a thing like that
Uh-huh

MY SENTIMENTAL FRIEND

On the floor the people dance around
Moving close together
But there all alone in the corner
There's the girl I once knew
Who broke me in two

So won't you please play a song, a sentimental song
For my sentimental friend over there
We've been so long apart, make it go right to the heart
Of my sentimental friend over there
Bring the tears to her eyes, help to make her realize
The love we had was just beyond compare
Then if the time is right, maybe I'll hold her tight
My sentimental friend over there

I recall the way she used to feel
When we heard a sad song
The teardrops would fall and she'd hold me
And tell me she'd be forever with me

So won't you please play a song, a sentimental song
For my sentimental friend over there
We've been so long apart, make it go right to the heart
Of my sentimental friend over there
Bring the tears to her eyes, help to make her realize
The love we had was just beyond compare
Then if the time is right, maybe I'll hold her tight
My sentimental friend over there

SHOW ME GIRL

A one way love can hang you up awful bad
And before I met you that's the only kind of love I had
So I just can't take your word
That things are gonna work out fine
You got to show me girl
Show me that you're really mine

If you're any better than the other girls I've known
You'll never prove it to me by words alone
So right from the very start
I'm laying it on the line
You got to show me girl
Show me that you're really mine

You got to show me you understand
When things don't go the way we planned
You got to show me you'll be true
Show me I'll be able to count on you

Oh I'd love to love you
You know I think you're out of sight
But first I've got to be sure you're gonna treat me right
If you really care, and you're not just wasting my time
Come on and show me girl
Show me that you're really mine

So if you really care
And you're not just wasting my time
Come on and show me girl
Show me that you're really mine
You got to show me girl
Show me that you're really mine
Come on and show me girl
Show me that you're really mine

 

SLEEPY JOE

Sleepy Joe, sleepy Joe

Rise and shine sleepy Joe
Now's the time don't you know
To get into a new kind of dream
You've been living alone
With no Bell telephone
And you don't have a shirt that is clean

You can rest your head
On the corner of your bed
You can watch the world go by
But you're never gonna see
What the other people see
If you're always gonna be a sleepy Joe

Rise and shine sleepy Joe
There are places to go
There are windows to clean on the way
You've got nothing to lose
Put a shine on your shoes
Do the best things you can every day

You can get upset
At the way that people get
You can turn your back on the crowd
But you're never gonna see
What is absolutely real
If you're always gonna be a sleepy Joe

Rise and shine sleepy Joe
Now's the time don't you know
To get into a new kind of dream
You've been living alone
With no Bell telephone
And you don't have a shirt that is clean

Rise and shine sleepy Joe
There are places to go
There are windows to clean on the way
You've got nothing to lose
Put a shine on your shoes
Do the best things you can every day

 

SUNSHINE GIRL

Sunshine girl I'm leaving soon
But I'll be back someday

Sunshine girl I feel your eyes on me
Your looks excite me
I wonder can it be
Do you invite me
to hold you tightly
How you delight me
my sunshine girl

Tonight, tonight and every night
I wanna be beside you
Tonight, tonight and every night
I'll be the one to guide you
As the wind blows gently on the blue lagoon
I'll hide you sunshine girl, My sunshine girl

Sunshine girl now I must go away
'Cos this was only a summer holiday
But one day I'll be returning
You'll see, across the blue sea
My sunshine girl

Tonight tonight and every night
I'm gonna dream about you
Tonight tonight and every night
How can I live without you
When I'm home then everyone
Will hear about my little sunshine girl
My sunshine girl

Sunshine girl I'm leaving soon
But I'll be back someday

 

WINGS OF LOVE

Little swallow in the sky
I want to entice you with a robin
I will give you all my sweets
A comic book, a clock that sings
If you will let me have your lovely wings
Little airplane above the clouds
I will shoot you down with gun and bow and arrow
So come down to my front lawn
Right away with all your things
And let me take away your mighty wings
Hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey
He wants to be in love
He wants to be a butterfly
And he is flying high like the birds into the sky
He wants to be in love
He wants to fly
He wants to be in love
He wants to fly
Little angel in the sky
I saw you in my dreams today
You're rejoicing admidst the harps
And all the bells and all the singing
If I am good tomorrow will you let me have your wings
Hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey
He wants to be in love
He wants to be a butterfly
And he is flying high like the birds into the sky
He wants to be in love, he wants to fly
He wants to be in love, he wants to fly
He wants to be in love, he wants to fly
He wants to be in love, he wants to fly
He wants to be in love, he wants to fly
He wants to be in love, he wants to fly

YOU WON'T BE LEAVING

The hour is very late
And I can see you're getting worried
Coffee's finished, candle's low
And soon you'll be asleep
Long walk home the night is chilly
And my room is cozy
I've got a feeling you won't be leaving tonight

Never thought to ask you
Why you really came to see me
Was it just the pictures pinned
So neatly to the wall?
Candle light paints shadows
Of your figure on the ceiling
I've got a feeling you won't be leaving at all

I don't try to fight it baby
I see the love light in your eyes
Just hold me tight then baby
You'll see that I'm not telling lies

Never thought to ask you
Why you really came to see me
Was it just the pictures pinned
So neatly on the wall?
Candle light paints shadows
Of your figure on the ceiling
I've got a feeling you won't be leaving tonight
I've got a feeling you won't be leaving tonight
