Since you been got in the big city you been started treating me wrong

Darning his socks in the night when there's nobody there

When the dream came I held my breath with my eyes closed
I went insane like a smoke-ring day when the wind blows

I hear your voice and I must come to you
I have no choice so what else can I do

Let me in baby, I don't know what you've got
But you'd better take it easy, this place is hot

Let me have one more chance
And you'll be my one romance
Darling, let me share with you

Thrown like a star in my vast sleep
I open my eyes to take a peep
To find that I was by the sea
Gazing with tranquility

When I feel like smiling
You're the reason why
If I ever lost you
I'd cry and cry

The streets are noisy I'm all alone
I sit and wait, dear, for you to phone
Go have your fun

Oooh, your kiss is sweeter than honey
And guess what, so is my money

Though I know you make me feel like nobody could
If I ever found out that you're no good

Seven hundred million are you listening?
Most of what you read, most of what you read is made of lies
But speaking one to one, ain't it everybody's sun
To wake to in the morning when we rise

Now's my chance and I must take it
A case of do-or-die

Well, don't you know I gotta skate

What do you do when your love is cheating?
You swallow your pride
What if you think she's lying?
The answer to that is to hold back the crying

In penthouse number three

I'll never thrill again to somebody new
Within my heart I know I will never start

Just for a moment I stood there in silence
Shocked by the foul, evil deed I had done
Many thoughts raced through my mind as I stood there
I had but one chance and that was to run

The girl I left behind
She's gone with a friend of mine
I don't have to read a sign to know things ain't the same

I'll give you three

So on and so on and scooby dooby dooby

Let's twist again like we did last summer

We will raise a family
A boy for you, a girl for me
Can't you see how happy we would be?

Ay arriba y arriba

Over by the window, day is dawning
When I feel the air, I feel that life is very good to me, you know
In the sun, there's so much yellow


I'm gonna find me a guy with a cute flat-top
Full of jive and knows how to bop
With a hot rod Ford, cut down real low

I wrote my baby, from Vietnam, and this is what I said:
I want to see you
You know that I want to see you
I, yes I do now, want to see you
Yes I do
