Ben

Ben, the two of us need look no more
We both found what we were looking for
With a friend to call my own
I'll never be alone
And you my friend will see
You've got a friend in me
(You've got a friend in me)

Ben, you're always running here and there
(Here and there)
You feel you're not wanted anywhere
(Anywhere)
If you ever look behind
And don't like what you find
There's something you should know
You've got a place to go
(You've got a place to go)

I used to say, "I" and "me"
Now it's "us", now it's "we"
(I used to say, "I" and "me")
(Now it's "us", now it's "we")

Ben, most people would turn you away
I don't listen to a word they say
They don't see you as I do
I wish they would try to
I'm sure they'd think again
If they had a friend like Ben
(A friend)
Like Ben
(Like Ben)
Like Ben

Greatest Show On Earth

Love is like a circus and a carnival is beautiful to see
Love can turn your mind around like ferris wheels and spinning carosels

You'll be a part of the world of make believe
Flying high like a man on a trapeze

Oh, everyday is a holiday
Get your tickets right away
Love, love, love
Is the Greatest Show on Earth

The fantasy you see is like a child again through rainbow colored eyes
Step right up its circus time and get your moneys worth of love today

You'll be a part of the world of make believe
Flying high like a man on a trapeze

Everyday is a holiday
Get your tickets right away
Love, love, yea
Is the Greatest Show on Earth

Everyday is a holiday
Get your tickets right away
Love, love, love
Is the Greatest Show on Earth

Love, love, love
Is the greatest show on earth (yea e yea)
Love, love, yea
Is the greatest show on earth
Love, love, yea


People Make The World Go Round

People...
('Round and 'round and around...)
People make the world go 'round
('Round and 'round and around...)

Teachers on strike, no more school today
They want more money but the board won't pay
People
Everybody's talkin' 'bout ecology
The air's so polluted that it's hard to breathe
People

Rrefrain
But that's what makes the world go round
The ups and downs a carousel
Changing people's heads around
Go underground young men...
People make the world go round...

Old folks judge you by the clothes you wear
They'd swear you're a hippy if you have long hair
Young politicians fight for poverty
While people still cry for equality

Refrain
But that's what makes the world go round
The ups and downs a carousel
Changing people's heads around
Go underground young men...
People make the world go round...

(Instrumental)

Refrain
But that's what makes the world go round
The ups and downs a carousel
Changing people's heads around
Go underground young men...
People make the world go round.


We've Got A Good Thing Going

Bad news, bad news!
I heard you're packing to leave!
I come running right over
I just couldn't believe it
I couldn't believe it

Refrain
Oh baby, baby
You must be out of your mind
Do you know what you're kicking away?
We've got a good thing goin', baby
We've got a groovy thing

I've never done you no wrong
I never hit you when you're down
I always gave you good thing
I never ran around
I never ran around

Refrain
Oh baby, baby
You must be out of your mind
Do you know what you're kicking away?
We've got a good thing goin', baby
We've got a groovy thing

There's something you ought to know
If you're fixing to go
I can't make it without you
No no no no, no no no no
No no no no, no no no no

Refrain
Oh baby, baby
You must be out of your mind
Do you know what you're kicking away?
We've got a good thing goin', baby
We've got a groovy thing

We've got a good thing goin', baby
We've got a groovy thing


Everybody's Somebody's Fool

Everybody's somebody's fool
The world is the biggest school
As you live, you learn though a torch will burn
Everybody's somebody's fool

You go through life making fools of others
Prentending you're giving them love
But remember sister or brother
You all have to answer to the one u above

It's beautiful to watch love begin
But oh so sad when it ends
As you got through life remember this rule
Everybody's somebody's fool

It's beautiful to watch love begin
But oh so sad when it ends
As you got through life remember this rule
Everybody's somebody's fool


My Girl

I've got sunshine
On a cloudy day
When it's cold outside
I've got the month of May
I guess you'd say
What can make me feel this way?
My girl
(My girl, my girl)
Talkin' 'bout my girl
(My girl)

I've got so much honey
the bees envy me
I've got a sweeter song than
the birds in the trees
I guess you'll say
What can make me feel this way?
My girl
(My girl, my girl)
Talkin' 'bout my girl
(My girl)

Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
Ooooh...

I don't need no money,
fortune or fame
I've got all the riches baby
one man can claim
Well I guess you'll say
What can make me feel this way?
My girl
(My girl, my girl)
Talkin' 'bout my girl
(My girl)


What Goes Around Comes Around

My pocket were full and now my money's gone
My friends come around and now they're gone
Things come and they come and then they go
And where they go nobody knows

Refrain
It's gonna come around
What goes around comes around
It's gonna come around
What goes around comes around

My cup over runneth with the fullness and grace
Yet people push bullshit in my face
The future can't hold what your money can't buy
My brother keep striving your child relies

Refrain
It's gonna come around
What goes around comes around
It's gonna come around
What goes around comes around

The world keep on spinning does the future know?
We're destined to screw ourselves one blow
We've ruined what's pure down from nature below?
You'd better look back it'll all be gone

Refrain
It's gonna come around
What goes around comes around
It's gonna come around
What goes around comes around

So children please listen this world is yours
This message to deep to ignore
Your forefathers said but they did not do
The things that would show that they cared for you

Refrain
It's gonna come around
What goes around comes around
It's gonna come around
What goes around comes around
Comes around, comes around, comes around
Comes around, comes around, comes around
Comes around, comes around, comes around
Comes around yeah

Gonna take you higher
I'm gonna take you higher
I'm gonna take you higher
Yeah yeah yeah

I'm gonna take you higher
Gonna take you higher
Yeah yeah yeah

Gonna take you higher, higher
Higher, higher, higher, higher
Gonna take you higher
Gonna take you higher


In Our Small Way

Refrain
Maybe you and I can't do great things
We may not change the world in one day
But we still can change some things today...
In our small way

Empty words are not enough
Where there's hurt we'll be a crush
When there's thirst we'll fill each other's cup
Because we care we love enough to share

Refrain
Maybe you and I can't do great things
We may not change the world in one day
But we still can change some things today...
In our small way

In despair we'll be the hope
And the prayer that frees the soul
We'll be there to share each lonely road
Because we love, I know
We care enough

Refrain
Maybe you and I can't do great things
We may not change the world in one day
But we still can change some things today...
In our small way

Just a little time is all it takes
What a difference just a smile can make, you'll see
Love is all we need

Refrain
Maybe you and I can't do great things
We may not change the world in one day
But we still can change some things today...
In our small way


Shoo-Be-Doo-Be-Doo-Da-Day

Your precious sweetheart, she's so faithful
She's so true, oh yeah
Her dreams are tumblin'
Her world is crumblin'
Because of you, uh uh
One day you'll hurt her just once too much
And when you finally lose your tender touch

Refrain
Shoo-be-doo-be-doo-be-doo-da-day
Her feet may wander, her heart may stray
Shoo-be-doo-be-doo-be-doo-da-day
You gonna send your baby straight to me

I'm gonna give her all the lovin'
Within my heart, oh yeah
I'm gonna patch up every single little dream
You torn apart, understand me now?
And when she tells you she's cried her last tear
Heaven knows I'm gonna be somewhere near

Refrain
Shoo-be-doo-be-doo-be-doo-da-day
Her feet may wander, her heart may stray
Shoo-be-doo-be-doo-be-doo-da-day
You gonna send your baby straight to me

Oh yeah-yeah, you better
You better listen to me, yeah

Heartaches are callin' and tears are fallin'
Because of you, oh yeah
And when you're gone she'll know
I'm the one to go to her rescue
Maybe you didn't know that baby
You're gonna leave her one too many times
And when you come back that
Girl's gonna be mine, all mine


You Can Cry On My Shoulder

Just because you know I love you so much
Don't be afraid to tell me you're sad
Because you lost his love
Though your love is not for me
I don't wanna see you in mysery, so come on, baby come on

And bring all your troubles to me

But it's just that I love you
So come on, baby come on

And bring all your troubles to me.
