You say you've got a real solution
Well you know we'd all love to see the plans
You ask me for a contribution
Well you know we're all doing what we can

What's that honey?
Pick you up at eight?
And don't be late?
But baby I ain't got no money honey

And when you touch down
You'll find that it's stranger than known
Signs in the street that say where you're going
Are somewhere just being their own

Chantilly lace and a pretty face
And a ponytail a-hangin' down
A wiggle and a walk and a giggle and a talk
Lord have mercy make the world go round round round

Have faith, hope, and charity
That's the way to live successfully
How do I know?

A young boy just seventeen
Just beginning to realize and explore his teenage dreams
Why did God call him oh so far away?
Maybe to help some boy or girl who might have gone astray

Let me hear you say the words I want to hear
Darling when you're near

Each time we have a quarrel
It almost breaks my heart
'Cause I am so afraid
That we will have to part

How does it feel?
How does it feel?
To be without a home
Like a complete unknown

Time goes by
It's a-passin' fast
You think your lover has come at last
By and by you're gonna find
Crazy lovin' has made you blind

There must be some kind of way out of here
Said the joker to the thief

Do you remember baby
Last September
How you held me tight
Each and every night
Well whoops-a-daisy how you drove me crazy

You're gonna tell me sweet things
You're gonna say my heart sing
Well you're gonna make those bells ring

Well a city slicker came and he said I'm tough
I think I wanna taste that powerful stuff
He took one swift slug and he drank it right down
And I heard him a-moanin as he hit the ground

But it donít make no difference baby, no no
And I know that I could always try
It donít make no difference baby, yeah
I better hold it now
I better need it yeah
I better use it till the day I die

Come along with me
We'll dance until morning till there's just you and me
And maybe if the music is right
I'll meet you tomorrow sort of late at night

Again and again and again and again and
Again and again and again and again and
Again and again and again and again and

I've got to know the answer
Was it someone from above?
I wonder, wonder who-umba-do-do who

Poor man wants to be a rich man
The rich man wants to be a king
But the man who can sing when he hasn't got a thing

I'm all dressed up for the dance

You're mine, mine baby
And you'll always be (always be)
I love you so much (I love you so much my darling)

I'm gonna tell you how it's gonna be
You're gonna give your love to me
I'm gonna love you night and day

Yeah these cats from outer space
They were givin' it all
I could tell the way they jumped it
They were havin' a ball
They had me pattin' my feet and just a-clappin' my hands
They stopped just long enough to say, "Crazy, man"

Since she left me
I've never been the same
'Cause I love my girl

Don't you know
That I love you and want you so
Come back baby
Come back home
Say you love me and never again roam


You keep a-packin' up my clothes
Nearly everybody knows
That you're still just a-puttin' me on
When I start a-walkin'
Gonna hear you start a-squawkin'
And a-beggin' me to come back home

It's a weak man that cries
So I guess I'd better dry my eyes
Yes I will miss her more than anyone
