You'll Never See My Face Again
Ev'ry single word has been spoken.
It's much to late to change your ways.
Far too many vows have been broken.
You can't expect a soul to stay.
You think that you can stand and lie.
It makes me laugh . you got no friends.
It took a thousand years to find out why.
You'll never see my face again .

You know that you've been left before this night.
It's come my turn to make it over.
I wish that ev'ry thing was coloured white.
I wish that I could be a rover.
You think that you can stand and lie.
It makes me laugh.you got no friends.
It took a thousand years to find out why.
You'll never see my face again .

Black Diamond
Where are you ? I love you . where are you ? I love you .
Where are you to keep me warm?

I had a dream of a place far away.
I followed a river where the dead man would play.
And I'm leaving in the morning.
And I'm leaving in the morning.
And I won't die, so don't cry. I'll be home.
Those big black diamonds that lie there for me.
By the tall white mountains which lie by the sea.

And you a man who's as tall as the sky
Followed a river where thousands have died.
He was leaving in the morning.
He was leaving in the morning.
If I come home and my women has flown.
Those big black diamonds that lie there for me
By the tall white mountains which lie by the sea
Oh oh oh oh oh
Say goodbye to auld lang syne (repeat and fade)back to top
Marley Purt Drive
Sunday morning, woke up yawning; filled the pool for a swim.
Pulled down the head and looked in the glass just to see if I was in.
Went up the stairs and kissed my women to make her come alive.
'Cause with fifteen kids and a fam'ly on the skids,
I got to go for a Sunday drive.
Fifteen kids and a fam'ly on the skids ,
I got to go for a Sunday drive.

That's how they are, so I grabbed out the car;convertible fifty-nine.
Headed for the freeway; tried to find the Pasadena sign.
Ten miles and three quarters more I wasn't feeling any more alive.
'Cause with fifteen kids and a fam'ly on the skids,
I got to go for a Sunday drive.
Fifteen kids and a fam'ly on the skids,
I got to go for a Sunday drive.

I used to be a minstrel free with a whole lot of bread in my bag.
I used to feel that my life was real, but the good Lord threw me a snag.
Now I'm gonna be the same as me ,no matter how I try.
'Cause with fifteen kids and a fam'ly on the skids,
I got to go for a Sunday drive.
Fifteen kids and a fam'ly on the skids,
I got to go for a Sunday drive.

Turned 'round the car and headed for home; I guess I realized my fate.
Ten miles and three quarters more I pulled up outside the gate.
Twenty more kids were stood inside and that made thirty-five.
'Cause with an orphanage full of thirty-five kids,
I got to go for a Sunday drive.
An orphanage full of thirty-five kids ,
I got to go for a Sunday drive.

Sunday morning woke up yawning; filled the pool for a swim.
Pulled down the glass and looked in the mirror just to see if I was in .
Went up the stairs and kissed my women to make her come alive.
'Cause with an orphanage full of thirty-five kids ,
I got to go for a Sunday drive.
And orphanage full of thirty-five kids,
I got to go for a Sunday drive.back to top
Edison
He made electric lights to read. he gave us light today.
He gave us cylinders to please.
When edison came to stay. edison came to stay.

Edison set the world on fire. he really made the day.
Station to station ; many wires.
Edison came to stay. edison came to stay.

Oh, how , look at us now. we've still got a lot to learn.
But it's someone else's turn.
Edison's here to stay. edison's here to stay.

All of the world can taste his glory. all of the people say.
You be the man to write his story. edison's here to stay.
Edison's here to stay.

Oh, how, look at us now. we've still got a lot to learn.
But it's someone else's turn.
Edison's here to stay . edison's here to stay.

He made electric lights to read. he gave us light today.
He gave us cylinders to please, when edison came to stay.
Edison came to stay.edison came to stay.edison came to stay.

You be the man to write his story. edison came to stay.
Edison came to stay.
All of his world can hear his story. edison came to stay.
Edison came to stay . edison came to stay. edison came to stay ..

Melody Fair
Who is the girl with the crying face looking at millions of signs?
She knows that life is a running race,
Her face shouldn't show any line.

Melody fair won't you comb your hair? you can be beautiful too.
Melody fair , remember you're only a woman .
Melody fair, remember you're only a girl. ah...

Who is the girl at the window pane, watching the rain falling down?
Melody, life isn't like the rain ; it's just like a merry go round.

Melody fair won't you comb your hair? you can be beautiful too.
Melody fair, remember you're only a woman.
Melody fair, remember you're only a girl. ah...

Who is the girl with the crying face, looking at millions of signs?
She knows that life is a running race.
Her face shouldn't show any lines.

Suddenly
How can you tell by looking at me ? how can you tell you like what you see?
Suddenly there's a boy in the rain alone.
Suddenly there's a girl in the rain alone.

How can you humans are real ? how can you tell you like what you feel?
Suddenly there's a girl in your heart oh boy.
Suddenly there's a boy in your heart oh boy.
Ah....

How can you tell by looking at me? how can you tell you like what you see?
Suddenly there's a boy in the rain alone.

Whisper Whisper
Whisper, whisper. what have you got ?
I got something that you need a lot .
Stop me and buy one.
You can see better but you better not.

Listen mister can you help me ?
It's my sister . show her how to fly.
Stop me and try one.
You can see ev'rything blowing by.

Whisper whisper. keep it quiet.
If you like it you can try it too.
Stop me and buy one.
I am illegal that mean so are you

Whisper whisper what have you got?
I got something that you need a lot.
Stop me and buy one.
You can see better but you better not.
Whisper, whisper, whisper, whisper

I am man and you are women.
Who needs marriage? we are humans all.
If I could please you, arouse and ease you ,
Then it would please you if I should call.
Doesn't matter what your name is.
I can do a million things to you .
No explanations; sexual patience.
Most of the nation's doing it too.
No no no no noback to top
Lamplight
Alons, viens encore, cherie.
J'attendrai patiemment sous la lampe dans la vieille avenue.

Then I may end.
She had things to buy.
I close my eyes .
Yet I don't know why.
I gave her money; said she knew someone.
And she said she won't be long.

Lamplight keep on burning while this heart of mine is yearning.
Lamplight keep on burning till this love of yours is mine.

I sat alone with my thoughts and laughed .
Then saw your face in an old photograph.
I didn't think that I could live without you but what am I to do ?

Lamplight keep on burning while this heart of mine is yearning.
Lamplight keep on burning till this love of yours is mine

Come home again dear. I have waited year after year
Under the lamp in our old avenue.
If all in the world that's laughing, why should it make us cry?

Ah...back to top
Sound of Love
See the children play the ball. see them play along the hall.
It makes me cry to see them smile.
I see the moon; I see the sky.
I see reflections in my eyes. and there's no one to share my life.
I need a life to go my way.
So ev'ry night I pray.
Just give me a song for my life.
I feel a clown. people try to play me down .
And there's one thing I never found .
The sound of love.

See the old man walk the lane. see him walk along in pain.
It makes me cry to see them smile.
I watch the moon; I watch the sky.
I see reflections in my eyes.
And there's no one to share my life.
I need a life to go my way . so ev'ry night I pray.
Just give me someone for my life.
I feel a clown. people try to play me down .
And there's one thing I never found .
The sound of love.

The sound of love .ev'rybody loves the sound of love.
Ev'rybody loves the sound of love.
Ev'rybody loves the sound of love (keep repeating and fade)back to top
Give Your Best
(spoken)
It's a square dance mr marshall. it's a square dance on the floor.
It's a square dance mr perkins. it's a square dance to be sure, to be sure.
Ev'rybody, grab partners ...

I'm just a clown that used to run around .
I used to have a million friends.
I used to start where ev'rybody ends.
But I just give my best to my friends .

I've done my shows. ev'rybody knows .
I nearly sold all my clothes.
One man can give; another has to lend.
So I just give my best to my friends.
(spoken)and so you should .

And when you think that your life isn't right.
You know the day isn't always like night.
You've had your peace now it's time for you to fight.
Just give your best to your friends.

I'm just a clown that used to run around .

So I just give my best to my friends.

And when you think that your life isn't right.
You know the day isn't always like night.
You've had your peace now it's time for you to fight.
Just give your best to your friends.

You've had your peace now it's time for you to fight .

I Laugh in Your Face
The circus is coming to see you .
The elephant smiles.
Ev'rybody can hear you say that's out of style.
My brother is friendly for reasons, if I am the same.
Just for four hundred seasons we all live in rain.

So I laugh in your face. your only one race.
Yes I laugh in your face and I'm right.
You lie just like the rest. but there's nobody best.
So I laugh in your face and I'm right.

I'll pull out your plug so your small.
You'll slide down the drain .
On the steps of st. peter's you all look the same.

So I laugh in your face. your only one race.
Yes I laugh in your face and I'm right.
You lie just like the rest . but there's nobody best.
So I laugh in your face and I'm right.

The circus is coming to see you . the elephant smiles.
Ev'rybody can hear you say that's out of style.
So I laugh in your face. you're only one race.
Yes I laugh in your face and I'm right.
You lie just like the rest. but there's nobody best.
So I laugh in your face and I'm right.back to top
Never Say Never Again
Your lips could never show a smile.
You never tried you just put me in a file.
I never lived inside your hole , child.
I thought you needed me I never had no style.

Never say never say never again . never say never say never again.
You said goodbye; I declared war on spain.
Never say never say never again

Your eyes could never show a grin.
You never tried you just put me in a tin.
I never lived inside your hole child.
You know I needed you . and look at the shape I'm in.
Never say never say never again .never say never say never again .
You said goodbye I declared war on spain.
Never say never say never again .

Your lips could never show a smile.
You never tried you just put me in a file.
I never lived inside your hole child.
I thought you needed me. I never had no style.
Never say never say never again.
Never say never say never again .
You said goodbye I declared war on spain.
Never say never say never again .

Never say never say never again
Never say never say never again
You said goodbye I declared war on spain .
Never say never say never again.

First of May
When I was small, and christmas trees were tall,
We used to love while others used to play.
Don't ask me why, but time has passed us by,
Some one else moved in from far away.

(chorus)
Now we are tall, and christmas trees are small,
And you don't ask the time of day.
But you and i, our love will never die,
But guess we'll cry come first of may.

The apple tree that grew for you and me,
I watched the apples falling one by one.
And I recall the moment of them all,
The day I kissed your cheek and you were mine.

(chorus...)

When I was small, and christmas trees were tall,
Do do do do do do do do do...
Don't ask me why, but time has passed us by,
Some one else moved in from far away.back to top
