Ice cold waters runnin' through my brain
And they drag me back to work again
Pains and blisters on my mind and my hands
From living daily with those canvas bags

It seems the days we spend together
All too quickly fade away
And even now my lonely mind
Is filled with thoughts of yesterday

I'll pretend that I'm kissing
The lips I am missing
And hope that my dreams will come true

But in the meantime
While I'm so lonely and so blue
Why don't you tell me now, tell me now
What am I gonna do?

Once you get with it, oh-ho
You know you can't quit it, no no
Come on, one and all
We gonna have a ball

Although he doesn't love me
Keep him safe just for me

Oh, she didn't bat an eye
As I packed my bags to leave
I thought she would start to cry
Or sit around my room and grieve

Just play them two bars of "Stardust"
Just hang out one silly moon

My baby don't like anything I do
My teacher seems to feel the same way too

Please don't tell my mother
I'm a saloon and a moonshine lover
Come on baby, do a slow float
You're a good lookin' riverboat

Flirtin' with the guys on the corner
You're such a bad girl!
Tellin' me you're out with your mother

'Cause I know
Yes, I know
That I, I love you so

I got a gal and she's long and thin
Real nice condition for the shape she's in
Every time I see her, boy, I do a spin

I can't stop now
Move up a little higher
Someway, somehow

I've got flowers
And lots of hours
To spend with you

Come to me, Signorina from Italy
Hear my plea, and I'll hire the hall

But as I softly walked
In my solitude
I searched my heart and found
There's a need for you

I can hear her calling to me
Oh, she's calling my name
So sweet and so plain
And I can hear her saying "come to me, baby"

I long for your lips
To kiss my lips
But just when I think they may

And all the sentries at their post
Thought it must have been the castle ghost
They jumped for their lives in the moat

Just diggin' some clean fresh air, 'cause
There's no sense in stayin' inside
If the weather's fine
And you've got the time

It touches your heart
Puts you in a groove
And when you sing this song
It'll make your whole body move

Twelve men, strong and true
Twelve men fight for you
On their heads, a beret of green
Twelve men, invincible

As he swings
Back and forth in his saddle on a horse (what a horse!)
That is syncopated gaited
What a funny meter
To the roar of his repeater

Now you come to the home
Don't stand on the block
Come inside, watch everybody rock
Everybody's feelin' like out their minds
Doin' a dance they call the Twine


V-8 motor and this modern design
Black convertible top, and the gals don't mind
Sporting with me, riding all around town for joy

No heartaches felt, no longer lonely
Nights of waiting finally won me
Happiness that's all rolled up in you
And now, with you as inspiration
I look toward a destination
Sunny bright that once before was blue
