We burst the pretty balloon
That took us to the moon
It's such a beautiful thing
But it's ended now
It sounds like a lie
If I say I'd rather die

Oh, I am watching you
Oh, oh, oh, it cannot be
While I'm watching you
I'm wishing it were me

I dig a French bikini
On Hawaiian island dolls
By a palm tree in the sand

You know you should be glad

Smile an everlasting smile
A smile can bring you near to me

I'm glad, so glad, so glad
Glad you are you
I'm so lucky to be
No one else but me

And tomorrow
She's a friend of mine
And the sorrow I see
Her face is lined
She's no longer blind
She's just hard to find

Look-a there, look-a there
Look-a there, look-a there

Mellow is the feeling that I get
When I see her, mmm hmm
When I see her, oh yeah
That's the time (that's the time)
That's the time (that's the time)
I love the best

You'd know what a drag it is to see you

I was the one who came running
When you were lonely
I haven't lived one day
Not loving you only

I found a dream that I could speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to press my cheek to
A thrill that I have never known

I thought you knew
You were all the world to me
All my dreams come true

Jefferson Drum with his restless guns
Hog-tied my baby and the fight was won

It's up to you
Please see what you can do
For me and for my one and only love

Say the words I love you, love you truly
If I heard the words that could make you mine
I would be the luckiest girl alive

Please don't be a party pooper, pooper
Please oh please don't be a snooper, snooper
Can't we have a little fun tonight

Well they said you was high-classed
Well that was just a lie

They say you've found somebody new
But that won't stop my loving you
I just can't let you walk away
Forget the love I had for you
Guess I could find somebody, too
But I don't want no one but you

I've hungered for your touch
A long, lonely time

I told you once, I told you twice, and maybe even three times before
That our love could never be
Now I was right, you know I'm right, oh baby, how you know I'm right
Can't you see what you're doin' to me

You used to call me your sugar baby
Now I say call me, you tell me maybe
If you don`t love me, stop pretending
Who needs a book with a heartbreak ending

I thought I was dreamin' but I was wrong, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, but-a, I'm gonna keep on schemin'
Till I can-a make you, make you my own

If the night would never pass
And the sun would never rise
Not one moment would we waste
But golly

How's the weather?
Whether or not, we're together
Together we'll see it much better


And if I'm well you can tell she's been with me now
She's been with me now
Quite a long long time and I feel fine

Yonder come my baby
Dressed in red
She's got a shotgun
Says she's gonna kill me dead
