Hully Gully
Hully gully

(that, that's good.)
(one, I wanna sing along--you know why? you're missing part of it.)
(that pays off, ah, p.o.g.)
(we'll have greenwich village *snap* just like that.)
([...])

(play it like it is, carl!
Pick it up from the third!)

(ha!)

Well, there's a dance spreadin' round like an awful disease
Hully, hully gully
You just shake your shoulders and you wiggle your knees
(play it like it is!)
Hully, hully gully

Well, there's a dance spreadin' (*laugh*) round from coast to coast
Hully, hully gully
Well, when me and my baby do it, that's how we do it the most
Hully, hully gully

Mama hully gully
Papa hully gully
Baby hully gully, too

Well, I went to a party now and what did they do?
Hully, hully gully
Well now everybody's doing it son, so why ain't you on their way too
Hully, hully gully

Everybody's lookin' like they got the shakes
Hully, hully gully
You just wiggle your shoulders, man, that's all it takes
Hully, hully gully

Mama hully gully
Papa hully gully
Baby hully gully, too

(let's tear 'em down!)

Hully, hully gully
Do it with your left shoulder
Hully, hully gully
Do it with your other shoulder, now
Hully, hully gully
Switch your blades
Hully, hully gully

Mama hully gully
Papa hully gully
Baby hully gully too

(how about me and my girl? )

Mama hully gully
Papa hully gully
You can hully gully too

(*loud slap*)
(whoa!)
(that's all [...])

I Should Have Known Better
(just groovy.)
(beatle? )
(what is it, what is it? )
(no--hey, faster.)
(it's paul. paul is the [...].)
([...])
(who? )
(paul!)

I should have known better with a girl like you
That I would love everything that you do
And I do, hey hey hey, and I do

(faster!)

Woah-oh I should have realized what a kiss could be
That this could only happen to me
Can't you see, can't you see...

That when I tell you that I love you, oh
You're gonna say you love me too, oo oo oo oo
Bow bow bow
And when I ask you to be mi-i-i-ine
You're gonna say you love me too
You love me too
(harmonics!)
You love me too
You love me too

(great. now, tell me why. how does that go? that's my favorite beatles song.)
(one more time. tell me why.)
(who knows.)
(hey, 7up! I want some 7up.)
(hey, I got some.)
(over here, I want some ice cubes!)back to top
Tell Me Why
Tell me why you cried, and why you lied to me
Tell me why you cried, and why you lied to me

Well I gave you everything I had
But you left me sittin' on my own
Did you have to treat me oh so bad?
All I do is hang my head and moan

Tell me why you cried, and why you lied to me
Tell me why you cried, and why you lied to me

If there's something I have said or done
Tell me what and I'll apologize
If you don't, I really can't go on
Holding back these tears in my eyes

Tell me why you cried, and why you lied to me
Tell me why you cried, and why you lied to me

(hey!)

Well I'm begging on my bended knees
If you'll only listen to my pleas
If there's anything I can do
'cos I really can't stand it, I'm so in love with you
Ohhhhhh!

Mountain of Love
(downbeat, denny. denny. downbeat!)
(*laughter*)
(what? )
(get out of here!)

(oh, man!)
(oh, rock out!)

Standin' on a mountain lookin' down on a city
The way I feel is a doggone pity
Teardrops fallin' down the mountainside
Many times I've been here, many times I've cried
We used to be so happy when we were in love
High on a mountain of love

Night after night I'm a-standin' here alone
Weepin' out my heart (*laugh*) till the cold grey dawn
Prayin' that you're lonely and you'll come here too
Hopin' just by chance that I'll get a glimpse of you
(oh yeah!)
Trying hard to find you somewhere up above
High on a mountain of love

The mountain of love, the mountain of love
You should be ashamed
You used to be a mountain of love
But you just changed your name

Way down below there's a half a million people
Somewhere there's a church with a big tall steeple
Inside the church, there's an altar filled with flowers
Wedding bells are ringin' and they should've been ours
That's why I'm so handy, my dream is gone above
High on a mountain of love

([...])
(keep playin' it like it is!)
([...])

High on a mountain of love

The mountain of love, the mountain of love
You should be ashamed
You used to be a mountain of love
But you just changed your name

Way down below there's a half a million people
Somewhere there's a church with a big tall steeple
Inside the church, there's an altar filled with flowers
Wedding bells are ringin' and they should've been ours
That's why I'm so lonely, my dream is gone above
High on a mountain of love
High on a mountain of love
High on a mountain of love
High on a mountain of love

High on a mountain of love.

...hide your tears...
(let him sing it.)
(oh!)
(he knows it better than I do.)

Ooom pom pom

(king arthur!)

Here I stand, head in hand
Turn my face to the wall
If she's gone I can't go on
Feeling two foot small
(shhhhhhhhh!)
(this is great!)

Everywhere people stare
Each and every day
I can see them laugh at me
And I hear them say

(go!)
Hey! (*laughter*) you've got to hide your love away
Hey! (*laughter*) you've got to hide your love away
(hey hey.)

How can I even try?
I can never win
Hear them, see them
In the state I'm in
(be quiet.)

How could she say to me
Love will find a way
Gather round, all you clowns
Let me hear you say

(hey!)
(*laughter*)
Hey, you've got to hide your love away
Hey, you've got to hide your love away

Do do doooo do-do-do

Devoted to You
Darlin', you can count on me
Til the sun dries up the sea
([...])
Until then, I'll always be
Devoted to you

I'll be yours through endless time
I'll adore your charms sublime
Guess by now you know that i'm
Devoted to you

I'll never hurt you, I'll never lie
I'll never be untrue
I'll never give you reason to cry
I'd be unhappy if you were blue

Through the years, my love will grow
Like a river, it will flow
It can't die because I'm so
Devoted to you

I'll never hurt you, I'll never lie
I'll never be untrue
I'll never give you reason to cry
I'd be unhappy if you were blue

Through the years, my love will grow
Like a river, it will flow
It can't die because I'm so
Devoted to you

Alley oop
Wears clothes from a wildcat's hide
Alley oop
He's the king of the jungle jive
Look at that caveman go!

He's got a chauffeur that's a genuine dinosaur
Alley oop oop, oop oop oop
And he can knuckle your head before you count to four
Alley oop oop, oop oop oop
He's got a big ugly club and a headful of hair
Alley oop oop, oop oop oop
He's oohhhh eatin' grizzly bear

He's the toughest man there is alive
Alley oop
Wears clothes from a wildcat's hide
Alley oop
He's the king of the jungle jive
Look at that caveman go!
(*scream*)

He rides through the jungle tearin' limbs offa trees
(*scream*)
Alley oop oop, oop oop oop
And knocking great big monsters dead on their knees
Alley oop oop, oop oop oop
Other cats don't bug him 'cos they know better
Alley oop oop, oop oop oop
'cos he's a mean motor scooter and a bad go-getter
Alley oop oop, oop oop oop

Well, uh, he's the toughest man there is alive
Alley oop
Wears clothes from a wildcat's hide

We always take my car although it's a heap
And we never get turned down by the chicks we pick up on
Not much...
None of the guys go steady 'cos it wouldn't be right guard
To leave their best girls home on a saturday night

Hey
My little deuce coupe
You don't know what i--
Little deuce coupe

Come gather round people, wherever you roam
And admit that the waters around you have grown
And accept it that soon you'll be drenched to the bone
(right!) (*laughter*)
If your time to you is worth savin'
Then you'd better start swimmin' or you'll sink like a stone
(glug.) (wrong!)
For the times they are a-changin'
(*laughter*)

Come writers and critics who prophesize with your pen
(right!) (*laughter*)
And keep your eyes wide, the chance won't come again
(wrong!)
And don't speak too soon for the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who that it's namin'
(no!)
'cos the loser now will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'
([...], [...])

Come mothers and fathers throughout the land
(eve of destruction)
And don't criticize what you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters are beyond your command
Your old road is rapidly agin'
Please get out of the new one if you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin'
