Forever my darling
My love will be true
Always and forever
I'll love just you

Everybody's gonna be there
My friends and yours from everywhere
Oh what a time it's gonna be
Come on baby let's go see

Ah, you'll have a home, all right
You'll have a home
Real hot home
Ah, you'll have a home

If you see your brother standing by the road
With a heavy load from the seeds he sowed
And if you see your sister falling by the way
Just stop and say you're going the wrong way

You want me to act like we've never kissed
You want me to forget
Pretend we've never met
And I tried and I tried
But I haven't yet

I'm lonely as I can be
I'm waitin' for your company
I'm hopin' that you'll come back to me

Crazy little mama comes knock, knock, knockin'
Just like she did before

Some time ago I thought
You had run out of fools
But I was so wrong
You got one that you'll never lose

A bad mistake I'm makin' by just hangin' 'round
I know that I should have some fun and paint the town
A lovesick fool is just blind and just can't see

Play your didgeridoo, Blue
Play your didgeridoo
Uh, like, keep playin' till I shoot through, Blue
Play your didgeridoo

Then we danced and she whispered, I need you
Take me away from here and be my man
Then I looked into her eyes and I saw it
The reflection of my wedding band

I remember (I remember)
When I used to see you jumping rope
(Jumping rope, up and down, baby)
I remember when you got your first baby coach

Little general Napoleon of France
Tried to conquer the world but lost his pants
Met defeat known as Bonaparte's Retreat

The bears and the birds
Tell Clifton Clowers
If a stranger should wander there

She took my one ray of sunshine
She took my pride and my joy
She took my reason for living
She took my small baby boy

If you're not gonna stay
Please don't tease me like you did before
Because I still love you so
Although it seems like a mighty long time

I know every engineer on every train
All of the children and all of their names
And every handout in every town
And every lock that ain't locked when no one's around

Well I thought the day I met you
You were meek as a lamb
Just the kind to fit dreams' plans
Now the pace we're living takes the wind from my sails

Over and over
My friends said I'm a fool

Put your sweet lips a little closer to the phone
Let's pretend that we're together all alone
I'll tell the man to turn the jukebox way down low

Got what I got the hard way
And I'll make it better each and every day
So honey don't you fret (now)
'Cause you ain't seen nothing yet

We're children needing other children
And yet letting a grownup pride
Hide all the need inside
Acting more like children than children

I know you wanna leave me
But I refuse to let you go
If I have to beg and plead for your sympathy
I don't mind 'cause you mean that much to me

No matter what I try to do
Gonna live my whole life through
Loving you

Your precious sweetheart
She's so faithful, she's so true
Oh, yeah
Her dreams are tumbling, her world is crumbling
Because of you


The day she went away
I made myself a promise
That I'd soon forget we ever met
But something sure is wrong
'Cause I'm so blue and lonely

And though the rain may fall
My skies will all be blue
And if I look close enough
The sun will come shinin' through
