It All Begins And Ends With Love

"Water Your Garden"

tired of the rain my love
i'm tired of the waiting
if you watch the sky
with your eyes
you'll see the line i walk
i'm not afraid
that's what i say
here and now
can you be brave enough
to risk it all
no matter what?

[CHORUS:]
who'll water your garden when
you descend
flowers can never grow
in the snow

we all want a crowd
by our side
yelling loud
telling us
we should be proud
of what we done
but it takes guts
to give it up
one on one
and if you run
when you are young
when you are old
you'll remember when
you had the chance
to have it all

[CHORUS x3]

It's Great To Be Here

So glad, so glad, so glad
To be back in your arms
Thank you, baby, thank you, baby
Back where I belong

Oh, I went out to do my thing
And I was totally rejected
I put you down for love unknown
But it wasn't what I expected
So frightened and confused
I came running back to you
I got right down on my knees
And said darling, won't you please
I don't know why you did it
But I'm not too proud to admit it, baby

Thank you, baby, thank you, baby
It's great to be here, oooh
It's great to be here in your arms
Back where I belong.

Adventure grabbed my heart
And took me away from you, honey
I met all kinds of pretty girls
In every town that I passed through
But that fiery senorita
Burned me down in Mexico
And I got kisses cold as ice
From my Alaskan Eskimo
I feel guilty and ashamed
But I'm gonna say it just the same, baby

Thank you, baby, thank you, baby, yeah
It's great to be here, oooh
It's great to be here in your arms

Now yes says senorita
She gave me I'll just si ya!
While kissing in the igloo
My Eskimo said no no!

Yeah, baby
So glad, so glad, so glad
To be back in your arms
It's great to be here
It's great to be here in your arms
Baby, baby, baby, baby, ow!
It's great to be here, oooh
It's great to be here in your arms, yeah
It's great to be here in your arms
Baby, baby, baby, baby, yeah

It's Too Late To Change The Time

[INTRO]
Too Late
Too Late
Too Late
[VERSE 1]
In this automatic age
We shop through the yellow page
Gone is the corner store
There is a supermarket there for you

People give way to change
But feelings remain the same

[CHORUS]
And it's too late, too late to change the time
Well it's too late, too late to change the time
And it's too late, too late to change the time
But it's not too late (too late) to change your mind

[VERSE 2]
It's a new day, a new age
A photograph just taken, is ready one minute later
Cars are bigger and better
But the manufacturer's satisfied never
In a world full of crime
I can't let you think that's right

[CHORUS]
And it's too late, too late to change the time
And it's too late, too late to change the time
And it's too late, too late to change the time
But it's not too late (too late) to change your mind
No, no

[BRIDGE 1]
So you wanna be a star (so you wanna be a star)
You are who you think you are (ah think you are)
You don't have to go further
Than my loving arms

[CHORUS half]
And it's too late, too late to change the time
But it's not too late (too late) to change your mind

[BRIDGE 2]
Are you sure you wanna go to New York City (New York City)
Where girls make it big if they're pretty (If they pretty)
Let say you get that penthouse view
But who's gonna love you the way I do (just the way i do)

[CHORUS]
It's too late, too late to change the time
And it's too late, too late to change the time, no
Too late, too late to change the time
But it's not too late (too late) to change your mind
Yeah, yeah, yeah

[CHORUS]
it's too late, too late to change the time
It's too late, too late to change the time
Ooh, too late, too late to change the time
But it's not too late (too late) to change your mind
Yeah, yeah, yeah

No doubt about it
Who I'm gonna sock it to

Joyful Jukebox Music

Give me some joyful jukebox music
And some genuine alligator shoes
Give me a chevolet car and a honkytonk bar
It's a rhythm that i can't refuse

Give me a quarter for that jukebox
So i can play my favorite song
Give me a touch of the past so we can bop so fast
And everybody sing along

(1ST CHORUS)
Are you ready (are you ready)
Are you ready (are you ready)
Remember how to rock n' roll
Are you ready (are you ready)
Ready (are you ready)
To boogie down and lose control

Play that record again for me
The one with the rock n' roll melody
Just make me a believer in rock n' roll fever
And bring back the memories

(2ND CHORUS)
Remember when you saw the beatles
And heard the music of the rolling stones
Well baby we'll be rollin' in at seven in a make believe heaven
The good ol' days have aged my bones

(1ST CHORUS)

Are you ready (are you ready)
Are you ready (are you ready)
Remember how to rock n' roll
Just make me a believer in rock n' roll fever
And bring back the memories, oh yeah

One more time
Give some joyful jukebox music
That gets me out on the dancin' floor
Give me a saturday night to hold my baby tight
And watch me shake it up once more

(2ND CHORUS)

(1ST CHORUS)


Just A Little Misunderstanding

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

It's a cold man to hurt his woman
And watch her walk away crying

When all along, he knows he's wrong
Being so hard on a woman who's trying

I was so unkind to hurt you so
Going out of my mind
I just gotta let you know that

Baby, I just can't let you go
I realize I hurt you so
Our love, surely can we mend it
It's just a little misunderstanding

I remember you said
You would always care
Until death should we do part
Baby, surely must be our destiny
To die the death of a broken heart

So before I go, a wandering rover
Let's get together
Talk this thing over now

Baby, I just can't let you go
I realize I hurt you so
Our love, surely can we mend it
It's just a little misunderstanding
That's all it is

If our love is so wrong?
It just seems wrong
That our love could never be
You could be anywhere
Baby, I wouldn't care
If I thought that you're leaving me

All the chains in the world
(Couldn't hold me, couldn't hold me)
Like the ? our your love
(Controls me, controls me)

Baby, I just can't let you go
I realize I hurt you so
Our love, surely can we mend it
It's just a little misunderstanding
That's all it is

Baby, I just can't let you go (oh, yeah)
I realize I hurt you so (ooh, yeah)
Our love, surely can we mend it
(Surely we can we mend it)
It's just a little misunderstanding

Baby (baby)
I just can't let you go....

Little Christmas Tree

I watch the snowflake fall
agenst my window plain
and wonder if you
are watchin snowflakes too
I take a walk downtown
to where you used to meet me
There’s joy everywhere
but all that waiting there is
[Chorus]
Just a little Christmas tree
Lookin sorta sad and lonely just like me
No one seems to care
They just went away and left it standing there
All alone on Christmas eve

I hear the Christmas bells
(Bum Bum Bum)
The happy people singing
The songs of the chill that only brings me tears
I sadly close my eyes
and say a little bear(?)
you'll be waiting there for me
I look but all I see is

[Chorus]

This is the season of love
(This is the season of love)
But I'm as sad as I can be
(sad as can be)
Why did you have to leave me
(Why did you leave me)
(Why did you leave me)

[Chorus]

Love Is The Thing You Need

(Love is the thing you need)

Ooh, I know a fortune teller
A very freaky fella
How 'bout you like me to tell ya

A family physician
Gave me a prescription
For a nice disposition

Oh, you can't get no satisfaction
When your mind is overacting
And you don't give your self the love you need

And get down, down, down
With some good ol' funky, funky love
(Love is the thing you need) Fellas

Don't you stop, don't you stop


Love's Gone Bad

Ah I feel a fountain in my brain
Ice-cold water runnin' through my pain
Got a bad taste in my mouth from bitter tears
Heart so sad 'cause love's gone bad
I see a rainbow all in black
Must be a sign that you ain't comin' back
Wake up at night callin' your name
I see a face on my window pane
I've been this way since you've been gone
Without your love I can't go on
Look in the mirror, what do I see?
A cryin' face, kinda looks like me
Now where's the love you promised me?
Where's he tenderness to comfort me?

Everytime some love I choose
I seem to always be the one to lose
Bad taste in my mouth from bitter tears
Heart fells sad 'cause love's gone bad
Love's gone bad, heart fells bad

Black crows flying up above
It's a sign that I live life without love
Slime's on the man, slime's ont the sea
Slime's everywhere I said I'm destined to be
And this world where nothing's right
Since you've been gone I can't sleep at night
You said you'd be true to me
Instead you made a fool out of me
Heart feels sad, love's gone bad

Mama I Got A Brand New Thing (Don’t Say No)

Sunday morning I heard mama pray
From a room I heard her say
"Good Lord help my son find his way"
"Lord he's just a country boy"
"Thinks the world is great big toy"
There ain't nothin' he can't do
If he wants to

He got himself a part time job
Saved his money and bought him a guitar
Played from sun up to sundown, hey, hey, hey

(He don't wanna) Go to schoool no more
Don't do his household chores
But I'm a hit, the neighbors biggest sound, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

(He's) Got some big ideas
He's talkin' 'bout leavin' here
Going to a place called New York City
And here's what he told me

Mama, I gotta brand new thing don't say no
Let me go
Mama, (Yeah) I gotta brand new thing don't say no
Let me go

Mama said, "My son, my son you're only sixteen"
"I know being a star is your dream"
"But I think it's time you stop all this foolin'"
"And get to your schoolin'"

Living in a state of frustration
Stop preachin' that education
'Cause this job is gonna make me a king
Above everything else, listen
Donned from head to toe
First class everywhere we go
Just give me a chance to do my thing

Mama, I gotta brand new thing don't say no
Let me go
Mama, I gotta brand new thing don't say no
Let me go
I can see it now

Champagne and caviar
Black limousine, chauffeured car
Trips all around the world
And I'll have my choice of any girl
People lined up as far as you can see
Standing in line just to see me
Money stacking up to the sky
There ain't nothin' that we can't buy
Have a little faith in me
Mama I'm sure

Maybe Tomorrow

I don't know how many stars there are
Up in the heavenly sky
I only know my heaven is here on earth
Each time you look into my eyes
The way.. you do baby
Thank you, thank you baby

My beautiful bird you have flown away
I held you to tight, I can see

You're all I need to get by
No one else can make me cry
The way you do baby

Chorus:
You are the book that I read each day
You are the song That I sing
Gonna sing it to you
You are the four seasons of my life
But maybe tomorrow, you'll change your mind girl
Maybe tomorrow, you'll come back to my arms girl

(Maybe she won't)

Maybe
You're all I need to get by
No one else can make me cry
The way you do baby

Moving Violation

Ooh, ooh moving violation (Moving violation)
You ran the stop sign, moving violation (Moving Violation)
When you gave him what was mine, moving violation (Moving violation)
Ain't nothin' you can say, moving violation (Moving violation)
(The games you love to play)

I saw you at the wheel
And you drove me out of my mind
(You've been careless with my love)
Hurt me a thousand times
And that's a moving violation (Moving violation)

Moving violation (Moving violation)
You ran the stop sign, moving violation (Moving violation)
When you gave him what was mine, moving violation (Moving violation)
Ain't nothin' you can say, moving violation (Moving violation)

Girl, I'm a witness
Girl, I'm a witness

(Oh) oh, I placed you high above the rest
I gave you my, my very best
(But you played your game) It was just an act
And you gave your love when I turned my back

You're pushing me back now, baby (Pushing me back, pushing me back)
I've taken all I can stand (Pushing me back, pushing me back)
But I saw you standing there (Yes I did now)
Giving him your hand (You gave him your hand)
And that's a moving violation (Moving violation)

You should have read the sign, moving violation
When you gave him what was mine, moving violation (Stop, red light)
You should have made him stop (Stop, red light)
Ooh, red light (Stop, red light) (Moving violation)
You should have made him stop (Stop, red light) (Moving violation)
Saw him at the red light (Stop, red light) (Moving violation)
Should have made him put on the brakes (Stop, red light)

My Cherie Amour

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.

My cherie amour lovely as a summer day
My cherie amour distant as the Milky Way
My cherie amour pretty little one that I
adore
You're the only girl my heart leaps for.
How I wish that you were mine.

In a cafe or sometimes on a crowded street
I've been near you but you never notice me
Oh cherie amour won't you tell me how could you
ignore
Back behind this little smile I wore
How I wished that you were mine.

My cherie amour...
My cherie amour...

Maybe some day you'll see my face among the
crowd.
Maybe some day you'll share your little distant
cloud.
Oh cherie amour pretty little one that I

You're the only girl my heart leaps for
How I wish that you were mine.

My Little Baby

All my friends keep asking what do I see in you
Through their eyes you beauty doesn't show
Ooh, all they ask is justified looking through the naked eye
But through the eyes of my love I see
The inner beauty of you

That's why you're my little baby
That's why you're my little baby
I don't want love on the skin
It's got to come from deep within
That's why you're my little baby
My little baby
My heart controls my eyes
And your love I visualize, oh yeah!

All your so-called girl friends who compliment your clothes
Know that they're you mama's hand-me-downs
Oooh, the fashion world's turning so fast
You're still trying to catch the past.
But in my world of love your style
I know will always last.

That's why you're my little baby
That's why you're my little baby
I don't care what experts say
[My Little Baby lyrics on http://www.metrolyrics.com]

Our love is tailor-made
That's why you're my little baby
My my my my little baby
Like a brand-new ermine coat
You keep me warm as toast, little baby!

You know it's true, little baby
You know it's true, girl
You know it's true, little baby
You know it's true, babe
I'm sticking with you, little baby
I'm sticking with you, girl
I'm sticking with you, little baby

Always thrill me when you touch me
Honey, you thrill me when you kiss me, little baby, yeah
Oh, sweet baby, I've got to say I'm thankful that you're my little baby
My little baby
You fill me up with pride
Every time you're by by side, now now now now

Oh yeah, you're my little baby, my little baby
My little baby, I've got to say I'm thankful that you're my little baby
My little baby, my little baby

Never Can Say Goodbye

Chorus:
Never can say goodbye
No no no no, I
Never can say goodbye
Even though the pain and heartache
Seems to follow me wherever I go
Though I try and try to hide my feelings
They always seem to show
Then you try to say you're leaving me
And I always have to say no...

Tell me why
Is it so

That I
Never can say goodbye
No no no no, I
Never can say goodbye

Everytime I think I've had enough
I start heading for the door
There's a very strange vibration
That ?itches me right to the core
It says it's time to run
You know you'll love her more and more

Tell me why
Is it so
Don't wanna let yo go

[Instrumental]

[Chorus]

I keep thinkin that our problems
Soon are all gonna work out
But there's that same unhappy feeling and there's that anguish, there's that doubt
It's that same old did ya hang up
You carry with you all the time

Tell me why
Is it so
Don't wanna let you go

[Chorus]

Never Had A Dream Come True

Everybody has something they have to leave behind
One regret from yesterday that just seems to grow with time
There's no use lookin back or wonderin
How it could be now or mighta been
Oh this I know but still I cant find ways to let you go
Chorus
I never had a dream come true
Till the day that I found you
Even though I pretend that Ive moved on
Youll always be my baby
I never found the words to say
Youre the one I think about each day
And I know no matter where life takes me to
A part of me will always be with you

Somewhere in my memory I lost all sense of time
Soon my road can never be cause yesterday is all that fills my mind
Theres no use lookin back or wonderin
How it could now or mighta been
Oh this I know but still I cant find ways to let you go

Chorus

Youll always be the dream that fills my head
Yes you will, say you will you know you will o baby
Youll always be the one I know Ill never forget
Theres no use lookin back or wonderin
cause love is a strange and funny thing
No matter how I try and try I just cant say goodbye
No no no no no

Chorus



Nobody

Nobody, no, nobody, said nobody,
No, no, no, nobody to love me like you do,
To love me like you do, to love me like you do.
Money in the bank, money in the bank
Don't mean a thing
Money can't buy, money can't buy
The love you bring.
Your love, baby
Can make a blind man see, yes, it can.
Can make the devil
Get right down on his knees.
Nobody, no, nobody, said nobody,
No, no, no, nobody to love me like you do,
To love me like you do, to love me like you do.
Movie star queen, a movie star queen
Can move me not.
Movie star queen, take off the paint, baby,
Whatcha got?
Take me, girl,
Your my desire, honey,
I get steaming hot
Every time you light my fire.
Nobody, no, nobody, said nobody,
No, no, no, nobody to love me like you do,
To love me like you do, to love me like you do.
The good book says, the good book says
To share with your brother.
The good book says, when it comes to you,
You better find him another.
You know the wise old owl
Got nothing to say.
But if you loved him like you love me
He'd hoot hoot twenty-four hours a day!

Nobody, no, nobody... (etc to fade)

Oh How Happy

Oh how happy (you have made me)
Oh how happy (you have made me)
I have kissed your lips
A thousand times
And more times than i can count
I have called you mine
You have stood by me
In my darkest hours
Sing
Oh how happy (you have made me)
Oh how happy (you have made me)
Oh how happy (you have made me)
Oh how happy (you have made me)
In our years together
We've got stormy weathers

But our love has been so strong
For some how we carry on
Sing
Oh how happy (you have made me)
Oh how happy (you have
made me), ooh, ooh
You brought joy
To my empty life, yeah
And all that was wrong
You made it right
Our love (our love)
Our love (our love)
Our love, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...
Oh how happy (you have made me)
Oh how happy (you have made me)
Oh how happy (oh how happy)
Oh how happy (oh how happy)
Oh how happy, ooh... You...
You have made me (you have made me)

One More Chance

Everybody loves the star
When hes on the top
But noone ever comes around
When he starts to drop

But you were someone special
You stuck through thick and thin
But I was much too busy
Trying to shine
To let your love shine in

Let you slip away
I must have been insane
Stop in the name of love
Dont make me live my life in vain

(chorus)
Give me one more chance
Thats all I ask of you
Just one more chance
Ill make it up to you
Just one more chance
Thats all I ask of you
Ill build you a world for two
Ill make it up to you

Now since Im all alone
Im talking to myself
I know youre out there somewhere
Having fun with someone else

But a distant voice of hope
Echo from within, sayin
(dont give up)
(your ship is comin in)

Though my ships alone
Ill play right to the end
Im crying outside
Heavens door
Wont you let me back in

Youll never know
What Ive been through
Let your love shine in again
This time Ill shine with you

Ooh, I'd Love To Be With You

Ooh, I'd love to be with you
Old man sun
He don't have to come
I'll keep warm with your smile
And when my troubles get bad
I should be sad
I'm happy all the while
(I forget the world outside)
Having your love, enjoying life
(Just me and you)
What a lovely way to spend my time
Ooh, I'd love to be with you
(You turn my work into play)
(It's just one big holiday)
Baby, having so much fun, ooh
(There's nothing we'll leave undone)
(Just me and you)
What a lovely way to spend my time
Ooh, I'd love to be with you
(You're Heaven on Earth for me)
Oh, no other address could there be
(There's no other place for me)
Than with you (You baby)
My whole life through
You're my inspiration (Yes, you are my love)
(What a sensation) Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, I'd love to be with you (Oh, what a feelin')
Ooh, I'd love to be with you (Yeah, yeah)

Petals

When my honey says she loves me so
Believe me, ya'll, it's far from status quo
A grain of salt I take with her heart
'Cause after her next breath, that girl may love me not.
She tells my I'm so sweet
Sugar can't compete
Then puts me on the shelf
Crying by myself.

Throwing petals, petals, tossing petals on the ground
Yesterday she picked me up just to throw me down
Those petals, petals, tell me what will it be today?
Will she walk into my arms or will she walk away?

She'll wake up some day and see
You're the only one she needs
Don't give up, just stick around
You'll be up instead of down.

She keeps telling me she wants me near
But half the time it's far from crystal clear
Fickle-heart must be her middle name
'Cause loving her is just a guessing game, oh
She calls up to say
Be there right away
Then leaves me sitting home
All alone and

Throwing all those petals, petals, tossing petals on the ground
Yesterday she picked me up just to throw me down
Those petals, petals, tell me what will it be today?
Will she walk into my arms or will she walk away?

She loves me (loves me, loves me)
And I feel like a king!
She loves me not (loves me not, she loves me not)
Huh! I've lost everything!

Petals, petals, tossing petals on the ground
Yesterday she picked me up just to thow me down
Yesterday I couldn't lose (yesterday I couldn't lose)
But today I sing the blues.

Oh! Petals, petals, petals, petals
Ooh, ooh! Petals, petals, petals, petals
Petals, petals, petals, petals
Petals, petals, petals, petals

Petals, petals, tossing petals on the ground
Yesterday she picked me up just to thow me down
Tell me, tell me, tell me, what will it be today?

Pride And Joy

You are my pride and joy
And I just love you, little darlin'
Like a baby boy loves his toy
You've got kisses sweeter than honey
And I work every day to give you all I know
And that's why you're my pride and joy

And I'm tellin' the world
You're my (pride and joy) pride and joy (pride and joy)
I believe I'm no (baby boy) baby boy (baby boy)
But I know you're mine (pride and joy)
My pride and joy (pride and joy)
Yeah baby (baby boy) Yeah baby (baby boy)

You, you are my pride and joy
And a love like mine, yeah baby
Is something nobody can ever destroy
You pick me up (pick me up) when I'm down (when I'm down)
And when we go out, pretty baby
You shake up the whole town (whole town)
And that's why (that's why)
I believe you're my (you're my) pride and joy (pride and joy)

[Repeat and fade:]
(Pride and joy) [4x] (baby boy) [2x]
(Pride and joy) My pride and joy (pride and joy)
And I love you like a baby loves his toy (pride and joy)

Reach In

Can't find no rhyme to it all
But still we keep on trying
The why and where of it all
Inside you the answer is lying
Reach in (reach in)
Find that tree of wisdom
Reach in (reach in)
Find out why you're livin'
Reach in (reach in)
Put away that shade (?) of sin
And let love shine inÂ…

Is a soul without meaning
And the Lord up above
He'll destroy every being

Find out why you're livin'

Reflections

Through the mirror of my mind
Time after time
I see reflections of you and me

(Reflections of)
The way life used to be
(Reflections of)
The love you took from me, oh

I'm all alone now
No love to sheild me
Trapped in a world
That's a distorted reality

Happinessyou took from me
And left me all alone
With only memories

Through the mirror of my imnd
Through these tears that I'm crying
Reflects a hurt i can't control

(Cause although you're gone)
I keep holding on
(To the happy times)
Oh, when you were mine

(All the love)
All the love that I've wasted
(All the tears)
All the tears that I've tasted
All in vain

Through the hollow of my tears
I see a dream that's lost
From the hurt girl
That you have caused

Everywhere i turn
Seems like everything i see
Reflects the love that used to be

(Reflections)
The love you took from me
(Reflections)
In you i put all my faith and trust
(Reflections)
Right before my eyes my world has turned to dust
(Reflections)
The way life use to be
(Reflections)
The love you took from me

Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer

You know dasher and dancer, prancer and vixen
Comet and cupid, donner and blitzen
But do you recall
The most famous reindeer of all?

Hey rudolph
Wo-hoah, rudolph

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer
Had a very shiny nose
And if you ever saw it
You would even say it glowed
All of the other reindeer
Used to laugh and call him names
They never let poor rudolph
Join in any reindeer games

(chorus)
Oh, then one foggy christmas eve
Santa came to say (hey rudolph)
Rudolph, with your nose so bright,
Wont you guide my sleigh tonight
Then how the reindeer loved him,
As they shouted out with glee:
Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer
Youll go down in history
Youll go down in history
Hey rudolph

Hey rudolph
Wo-hoah, rudolph

Red-nosed reindeer

Saturday Night At The Movies

Well, Saturday night at 8 o'clock
I know where I'm gonna go
I'm gonna pick my baby up
And take her to the picture show
Everybody in the neighborhood
Is dressing up to be there too
And we're gonna have a ball
Just like we always do
Saturday night at the movies
Who cares what picture you see
When you're hugging wih your baby in the last row in the balcony
Well, there's technicolor and cinemascope
A cast out of Hollywood
And the popcorn from the candy stand
Makes it all seem twice as good
There's always lots of pretty girls
With figures they don't try to hide
But they never can compare
To the girl sittin' by my side
Saturday night at the movies
Who cares what picture you see
When you're hugging your baby in the last row in the balcony



She's A Rhythm Child

See her twist and turnin'
Now her fuse is burnin'
Dynamite in action
So much satisfaction

So exciting, she never does unwind
Keeps rockin' all the tme
She's two girls in one
And she sure twice the fun

She's a rhythm child (she'll drive you wild)
She's a rhythm child (set your soul on fire)
She's a rhythm child, rhythm child (sexy)
Rhythm child, rhythm child
Just watch her dance, she'll turn you on, make you wanna do it

Place of funky music
They just watch her do it
Dancin' up a storm
Burnin' up the floor

Ooh sexy baby, i keep you on my mind
You stay there all the time
You're two girls in one
And you're sure twice the fun

CHORUS

She's a rhythm child (ooh,ooh sexy baby)
She's a rhythm child (sexy)
She's a dancer, romancer
She 'll drive you wild (she'll drive you wild)
As she'll do, do, do, do, do her thing

She's rhythm, rhythm
Sweet rhythm (she's sweet rhythm)

Stand! In the end you'll still be you
One that's done all the things you set out to do.
Stand! There's a cross for you to bear
Things to go through if you're going anywhere.

Stand! For the things you know are right.
It's the truth that the truth makes them so uptight.
Stand! All the things you want are real.
You have you to complete and there is no deal.

Yeah yeah yeah yeah.
Oom bah bah bah Oom bah bah bah
Stand! Stand!

Well, at least in your mind if you want to be.

Standing In The Shadows Of Love

(E. Holland, L. Dozier, B. Holland)
Lead vocals: Michael and Jermaine

Standing in the shadows of love
I'm getting ready or the heart aches to come.

Standing in the shadows of love
I'm getting ready for the heartaches to come.
(Can't you see me) Standing in the shadows of love
I'm getting ready for the heartaches to come.

I wanna run but there's no place to go
For heartaches will find me I know.
Without your love, a love I need
It's the beginning of the end of me.

Cuz you've taken away all my reasons for living
When you pushed aside all the love I've been giving.
Now wait a minute!
Didn't I always treat you right
Now baby didn't I, didn't I, didn't I?
Didn't I do the best I could
Now didn't I, didn't I?

(Don't you see me) Standing in the shadows of love
Getting ready for the heart aches to come.
(Can't you see me) Standing in the shadows of love
Doing my best to get ready for the heart aches to come.

All alone I'm destined to be
With misery my only company.
It may come today, or it may come tomorrow
But it's for sure I've got nothing but sorrow.

I thought your conscience would kinda bother you
How can you watch me cry after all I've done for you?
Hold on a minute!
I gave you all the love I had
Now didn't I, didn't I, didn't I?
When you needed me I was always there
Now wasn't I, wasn't I?

(Don't you leave me) Standing in the shadows of love
I'm getting ready for the heartaches to come.
I'm trying not to cry outloud 
Cuz all this cryin' it ain't, it ain't gonna
help me none!

Now what did I do, girl, to cause all this grief?
Now what did I say to make you want to leave?
Now wait a minute!
I gave my heart and soul to you
Now didn't I, didn't I, didn't I?
And didn't I always treat you good
Now didn't I, didn't I?

(Don't you see me) Standing in the shadows of love
I'm getting ready or the heart aches to come.

The Eternal Light

Mother Earth told the people
That the cold nights can be warm
Just get along with your brother
(It's the shelter from the storm)

If you're standing in the sunshine
But still out in the rain
Let your heart strike a match
('Cause love lights the flame)

Let it shine so bright
The eternal light
Let it burn forever and ever
Let love bring us together
Let it shine so bright
The eternal light
Let us join our hands together
Make a chain that bonds forever

Motionless people gather dust
Stand in the rain and you'll rust

Let's try to show compassion
It's the time for us to learn
There will be a better tomorrow
(Our reward is love in return)

Let it shine so bright
The eternal light
Let it burn forever and ever
Let love bring us together
Let it shine so bright
The eternal light
Let us join our hands together
Make a chain that bonds forever

The Love You Save

J5: Stop! Nanana! You'd better save it!
Stop, stop, stop, you'd better save it!
Michael: When we played tag in grade school
You wanted to be It.
But chasing boys was just a fad
You crossed your heart you'd quit.
When we grew up you traded
Your promise for my ring
Now just like back to grade school
You're doing the same old thing!

CHORUS:
Stop! The love you save may be your own!
Darling, take it slow
Or some day you'll be all alone.
You'd better stop the love you save may be your own!
Darling, look both ways before you cross me
You're headed for the danger zone.
Michael: I'm the one who loves you!
I'm the one you need!
Jermaine: Those other guys will put you down As soon as they succeed!
Michael: They'll ruin your reputation!
They'll label you a flirt!
Jermaine: The way they talk about you
They'll turn your name to dirt, oh!
Second verse:
Michael: Isaac said he kissed you
Beneath the apple tree
When Benjie held your hand he felt
E-lec-tri-ci-tee!
When Alexander called you
He said he rang your chimes
Christopher discovered
You're way ahead of your times!

REPEAT CHORUS
BRIDGE:
J5: Slow down.
Slow down.
Slow down
Slow down.
Michael: S is for "Save it"
T is for "Take it slow"
O is for "Oh, no!"
P is for "Please, please, don't go!"
Jermaine: The love you save may be your own...
Michael: Some day you may be all alone...
Jermaine: Stop it!
Michael: Save it, girl!
Jermaine: Or some day you'll be all alone.
Michael: You'd better stop! the love you save may be your own!
Jermaine: Please, please
Or some day, some day baby,
You'll be all alone
Those other guys will put you down as soon as they succeed. Michael: Stop! The love you
save may be your own...

Through Thick And Thin

(Through thick and thin)
I will always love you
(Through thick and thin)
I'm always thinking of you

Today did I forget
To say "I love you", girl (I'm sorry)
Hey, don't scold me yet
I'll prove it a hundred ways (Don't worry)

In this world of ups and downs
Baby, you're the one, the thing I found
You saved me from a place we both had been
Called lonely (Lonely)

(Through thick and thin)
I will always love you
(Through thick and thin)
I'm always thinking of you

When things aren't going right
I'll hold you in my arms (Don't worry)
You know you make me cry
If ever I let you down (I'm sorry)

Well I'm going to prove my love to you
Each day that I live my life with you
Through good and bad weather
We're together (Together)

(Through thick and thin)
I will always love you
(Through thick and thin)
I'm always thinking of you

Ooh, baby (Through thick and thin)
I will always love you, yeah, yeah
(Through thick and thin)
I'm always thinking of you

Track Of My Tears

People say I'm the life of the party
'Cause I tell a joke or two
Although I might be laughing loud and hearty
Deep inside I'm blue

So take a good look at my face
You see my smile looks out of place
If you look closer it's easy to trace
The tracks of my tears
I need you (Need you)
Need you (Need you)

Since you left me, if you see me with another girl
Seeming like I'm having fun
Although she may be cute, she's just a substitute
Because you're the permanent one

So take a good look at my face
You see my smile looks out of place
Look a little bit closer it's easy to trace
The tracks of my tears
I need you (Need you)
Need you (Need you)

(Outside) I'm masquerading
(Inside) My hope is fading
(Just a clown) Since you put me down
My smile is my make-up
I wear since my break up with you

Baby, take a good look at my face
You see my smile looks out of place
Look a little bit closer it's easy tot trace
The tracks of my tears

Under The Boardwalk

Oh, when the sun beats down and burns the tar on the roof
And your shoes get so hot, you wish your tired feet were fire-proof
Under the boardwalk, down by the sea
On a blanket with my baby, is where I'll be

(Under the boardwalk) Out of the sun
(Under the boardwalk) We'll be having fun
(Under the boardwalk) People walkin' above
(Under the boardwalk) We'll be falling in love under the boardwalk, boardwalk

From the palms you hear the happy sounds of the carousel
And you can almost taste the hot dogs and french fries they sell
Under the boardwalk, down by the sea, yeah
On a blanket with my baby, is where I'll be

(Under the boardwalk) Out of the sun
(Under the boardwalk) We'll be having fun
(Under the boardwalk) People walkin' above

From the palms you hear the happy sounds of the carousel
And you can almost taste the hot dogs and french fries they sell

Up On The House Top

Here comes Santa Claus
Here comes Santa Claus
Here he comes, here he comes

Here comes Santa Claus

Up on the housetop, reindeer pause
Out jumps good old Santa Claus
Down through the chimney with lots of toys
All for everyone’s Christmas joys

Tito had just one desire
That he gets a new guitar
But he wants a guarantee
That it won’t play out of key

Ho, ho, ho! who wouldn’t go?
Ho, ho, ho! who wouldn’t go?
Up on the housetop, click, click, click,
Down through the chimney with old st. nick

(I said) ho, ho, ho! who wouldn’t go?
Ho, ho, ho! who wouldn’t go?
Up on the housetop, click, click, click,
Down through the chimney with old st. nick

Here comes Santa Claus

Here he comes, here he comes

Jackie’s almost six feet tall
But no hot shot at basketball
Bring him a basket three feet tall
Maybe he’ll play like a pro

Marlon wears his shoes so thin
He’s gone through his socks again
He’s always dancin’ as you know
(so bring me some shoes with lots of sole)

Ho, ho, ho! who wouldn’t go?
Ho, ho, ho! who wouldn’t go?
Up on the housetop, click, click, click,
Down through the chimney with old st. nick

Up on the housetop, click, click, click,
Down through the chimney with old st. nick

Patter patter pitter patter
Pitter patter patter
Pitter patter pitter patter
Pitter patter patter

Oh dasher, dancer, prancer and vixen
Come on comet, cupid, donner and blixen
To the top of the porch, to the top of the wall
Now dash away, dash away, dash away all!

Did you read Santa Claus my list?
All the girls you’re waiting to kiss?
Mike, that list was only a joke
Too late, Jermaine, he’s bringing you mistletoe

But you just want toys and stuff
Yeah, but that’s not even half enough
What I want means more than fun
What’s that? - love and peace for everyone

Up on the house top reindeer stand
Waiting for that dear old man
Up to the chimney with gifts to spare
And lots of christmas joy to share

Ho, ho, ho! who wouldn’t go?
Ho, ho, ho! who wouldn’t go?
Up on the housetop, click, click, click,
Up out through the chimney with old st. nick

You Ain't Giving Me What I Want

Love oh love oh love sweet love
Let me tell you now, uh, uh

Gave all my heart, treated you tenderly
I had to take a whole lot of heartbreak just to make you see

You ain’t giving me what i want
[so i’m gonna get it all back]
Trying so hard to change your mind
[‘cause it’s running on a one way track]
All i want was a little bit of love
[‘cause you don’t know about that]
I’m gonna give it to somebody else
[‘cause you ain’t where it’s at]

Got hung up for her personality
But all it did was make a fool out me
I thought that i was giving you satisfaction
But i found out that it was a false reaction

You ain’t giving me what i want
[so i’m gonna get it all back]
Trying so hard to change your mind
[‘cause it’s running on a one way track]
All i want was a little bit of love
[‘cause you don’t know about that]
I’m gonna give it to somebody else
[‘cause you ain’t where it’s at]

Loving you is one mistake
A feeling i been confused
That i found out at once
I was being misused
It hurt me to my heart
To find from the very beginning
All that i was instore
Was an unhappy ending

You ain’t giving me what i want
[so i’m gonna get it all back]
I’m gonna give it to somebody else
[‘cause you ain’t where it’s at]

Well, well, well
Who will you choose
Who will it be
Representing me
Well, well, well
Who will you approve

You ain’t giving me what i want
[so i’m gonna get it all back]
Trying so hard to change your mind
[‘cause it’s running on a one way track]
All i want was a little bit of love
[‘cause you don’t know about that]
I’m gonna give it to somebody else
[‘cause you ain’t where it’s at]

Now that i finally got myself together
Can’t walk away with a smile on my face
Knowing the past has gone forever
Memory of you will be hard to erase

You ain’t giving me what i want
[so i’m gonna get it all back]
I’m gonna give it to somebody else
[‘cause you ain’t where it’s at]

Well, well, well
Who will you choose
Who will it be
Representing me
Well, well, well
Who will you approve

You ain’t giving me what i want
[so i’m gonna get it all back]
Trying so hard to change your mind
[‘cause it’s running on a one way track]
All i want was a little bit of love
[‘cause you don’t know about that]
I’m gonna give it to somebody else
[‘cause you ain’t where it’s at]

You Need Love Like I Do

You need love like I do, you need love, yes it's true
You need love like I do, you need love, yes it's true
You need love like I do, you need love, yes it's true
Yes it's true, yes it's true, yes it's true

Well, well, well, seems like it was only yesterday
When my mama told me, "Don't fall in love
With the first girl that comes your way"
She was pretty and nice, but I took her advice and passed her by
Years have passed and don't look like love's gonna give me a second try

Boy, the look on your face tells me you understand
Could it be your love life, like mine needs a helping hand?

Well, you need love like I do, don't you?
I can tell by the way you look when I'm looking at you
You need love like I do, don't you?
Well it seems like I'm looking in the mirror, when I'm looking at you

I can't begin to tell the many nights I sit home lonely
Come on and tell me, girl , has it ever happend to you
I'm gonna tell you something and believe me it ain't no joke
My love life is just like a sinking boat

I can unserstand a person being without money
But there's surely no reason for a person to be without love
Listen to me now, I'm a girl and you're a guy , yes it's true
Come on let's give love a try

You need love like I do, don't you?
I can tell by the way you look whe I'm looking at you
You need love like I do, don't you?

You need love like I do, don't you?
You need love like I do, don't you?

I know it ain't fit and proper for a girl to talk this way
But I can't cope with this loneliness not one more doggone day
Ain't it true girl?Everyday has been an uphill climb
To keeping my hopes afloat
Judging by your silence boy you must be in the same boat

You need love like I do, don't you?
I can tell by the way you look when I'm looking at you
You need love like I do, don't you?
Well it seems like I'm looking in the mirror, when I'm looking at you

You need love like I do, don't you?
I can tell by the way you look when I'm looking at you
You need love like I do, don't you?
Well it seems like I'm looking in the mirror, when I'm looking at you

You need love like
You need love like
You need love like
