In this dirty old part of the city
Where the sun refuse to shine

If I could get my way
I'd get myself locked up today

She's in my dreams, awake or sleeping
Upon my knees to her I'm creeping
My very life, my life is in her keeping

No use in you running
Or screaming and crying
'Cause you've got a home as long as I've got mine

And someday I know (woh, yeah)
We'll walk down the aisle (yes, we will)
So much in love (woh-oh)
Wearing a smile

We'll kiss just as before
Happy we'll be

You have words with him
And your future's looking dim

I'll beg his forgiveness on bending knee
But I wouldn't blame him if he said to me

Baby, baby, since first we met
I knew in this heart of mine (I wanna tell you)
The love we had could not be bad
I played it right and bide my time

There's a place not far from here
Everybody who's hip will know
They've got music that just won't quit
But it's the dancers that steal the show

When you move up closer to me
I get a feelin' that's oo-wee

Then you do the fly
With a hand jive
Then you do the slop
The chicken and the bop

After you've had it
You're in an awful fix

It doesn't matter if you go stag
It doesn't matter if you go drag
You're sure to have some fun
I'm telling everyone

I wonder if you know
That you're putting on a show
Could you please walk a little closer?

I've shed precious tears
The blues are mine

Yes, we're gonna let the world and all of its trouble
Go a-right on spinnin' by
We're gonna build one dream upon another
Clear up to the sky

How can I explain to you
How somebody can get so very blue
How can I tell you about my past
If all things won't end

They give their love away
To anyone who'll say "I love you"

Left alone with just a memory
Life seems dead and so unreal
All that's left is loneliness
There's nothing left to feel

Good sense, innocence, cripplin' mankind
Dead kings, many things I can't define
Occasions, persuasions clutter your mind

Oh baby
Yeah, come on and shake

Walkin' with a love, with a love that's oh so fine
Never to be mine no matter how I try

They say candy is sweet
But it just can't compete

I want a man to hold me tight
I want a man to kiss goodnight
If he is young and free
Just send him to me


Through the corridors of sleep
Past shadows dark and deep
My mind dances and leaps in confusion
I don't know what is real
I can't touch what I feel
And I hide behind the shield of my illusion

You know I try
To keep you satisfied
But you just won't comprehend
