Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough
You'll always sound precocious

Love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away

Did I miss the skyscrapers
Did I miss the long freeways
From the coast of California
To the shores of the Delaware Bay

But I won't set her free
She stole my love
And now she's gotta pay
One more time, yes

I, I
Used to be such a lonely guy
I cried
Until you came into my life

All our plans and all our schemes
How could I think you'd be mine
Those lies I tell myself each time

You're always howlin' 'bout where I been
You're always screamin' 'bout the money I spend
What's buggin' you

Anybody here seen my old friend Bobby
Can you tell me where he's gone
I thought I saw him walking up over the hill

Throw my ticket out the window
Throw my suitcase out there too
Throw my troubles out the door
I don't need them any more

(Silly girl)
Shame on you your mama said
(Silly girl)
Shame on you you cried in bed

To find a love like yours is rare these days
'Cause you've shown me what happiness is in so many ways
I look in the mirror and I'm glad to see
The laughter in the eyes where tears used to be

Can a kid without a cent
Get a break and maybe grow up to be President

Forget the dancin' every Friday night
I ain't a-gonna let you outta sight
I'm goin' out and buy a wedding ring
So you can start forgetting everything

One more night without sleepin'
Til the morning comes creepin'

Turn left, turn right, hold tight
Lift your feet, the heart will follow
Lift your voice to the hollow
Spread your wings like a swallow
Fly away, greet the day

Come on
Take a lesson now
Open up your jar now
Spread it on your cracker now

Was that you last night
Cryin' on the radio
Beggin' for a way to go
To go back where love wasn't jumbled so

I can remember when your hair was longer then mine
Woo Since you were a little girl your love was stronger than mine
Baby you move me
Oh child you move me
Bet your bottom dollar baby you're never gonna lose me

Took a walk and passed your house
Late last night
All the shades were pulled and drawn
Way down tight

[Voice 1]
Tempo, Teddy, Tempo
[Voice 2]
Senator, we're gonna have to get these kids out of the studio
[Voice 1]
Sorry, Ethel do you want to
Kids are stepping on the musicians, Ethel
Get them out of the recording studio now I think, yes
Eunice, a little more tempo there please

Once there was a silly old ram
Thought he'd punch a whole in a dam
No one could make that ram scram
He kept buttin' that dam

The grocery store's a supermart, uh-huh
Little girls still break their hearts, uh-huh
And men still keep on marchin' off to war
'lectrically they keep a baseball score

Such a thrill
Oh when she's close to you
Well-ll hold her tight

Woh-oh-oh-oh yeah, just a little bit longer
Please, please, please, please, please
Tell me you're going to

Break my heart
I want to go and cry
It's so sad to watch a sweet thing die


[Voice 1, sung]
And how can we their meanings convey
Through the thunder of ignorance and bigotry and war and death
[Voice 2, spoken]
And is not peace, in the last analysis, basically a matter of human rights
A right to live out our lives without fear of devastation
[Voice 1, sung]
We're little children
Just waiting for the games to begin

9 of the PT boats
2 of the Yogi Bear beachballs
The ball of Silly Putty
Belong to Caroline
9 of the PT boats
1 of the Yogi Bear beachballs
And the 2 Howdy Doody plastic bouncing clowns
Are Baby John's
The rubber swan is mine
