Unpredictable but irresistible
Sometimes I don't know what to do with you, yeah
I've grown accustomed to
The thrill of loving you

Let me stay in your arms
Just to gaze into your eyes, dear
And to capture all your charms

I close my eyes and I can fly
And I escape from all this worldly strife
Restricted by routine of life

Oh, it don't mean a thing when the lead is singin'
Or when he goes ay-yay-yay-yay-yay-yay

Well, if I had my choice of matter I would rather be with cats
All engrossed in mental chatter showin' where our minds are at
And relating to each other just how strong our will can be
In resisting all involvements with each groovy chick we see

Is there another who loves you so?
Is there another who can't let you go?

What good does it do
To worry 'bout the past
I know I can't undo the wrong I've done
But please, baby, please
I'm beggin' on my knees
Please take me back and give me one more chance

They always laughed at her
When she came into town

What a trip
Just watchin' as the world goes past

All last night as I lie in bed
With my lights down low
I hear approaching footsteps

'Cause I love you, baby
Every day and every night
Well, I've got fifty women waiting, child

And at that time
You were in love with a girl named Jane

So listen very carefully
Closer now, and you will see what I mean
It isn't a dream

These are the times that try men's souls
In the course of our nation's history
The people of Boston have rallied bravely
Whenever the rights of men have been threatened

Oh, I've had girls aplenty
Out in the evening breeze
Sailed on ships
From Mandalay to the China Seas

There must be some word today
From my boyfriend so far away

Chapter one says to love her
You love her with all your heart
Chapter two, you tell her
You're never never never never ever gonna part

Let's let bygones be bygones
Let's think about tomorrow, girl
Our future's bright

Only then will there be harvest
Only then will rivers flow
No more "adios" to you
I'll be close to you

Do me wrong, honey, if you wanna
You can do me wrong, honey, while I'm gone

And as I still walk on
I think of, of things we've done together
While our hearts were young

I met you for the first time last night
When you kissed me and held me tight
Baby, you made me feel all right
And this is the song that I sang all night

I'd rather you get your very first heartbreak
Somewhere else along the line

Silver hair and ragged shirt and baggy pants
The old soft-shoe

The guys are gonna want to go out and play sometimes
But girls, you must not let it get you down
Just take this advice I give you, just like a mother


I have heard that there are women twenty feet tall living on the moon
(That's right, we're those ones, women twenty feet tall living on the moon)
When I take my space ship and land on the moon someday, this is what I'll say
(What'll he say?  What'll he say?)

Well I remember, baby, long time ago
Had so much money it was laying on the floor
We had a Pontiac car and was way up on top
But things has changed, we've really got to stop
