Kitty
I work in the mornin', I work in the night
The men on the block, they just laugh at me
I work in the mornin', I work in the night
The men on the block, they just laugh at me

But when they're wiping their silver spoons
Palming the men for some bread,
I'll be laughing
Way, way out of my head!

When my little kitty gets out,
There's gonna be a party, a party no doubt
When my little kitty gets out
There's gonna be a party

And if my mind isn't coming so fast
The men on the block say I'm on the brink
And if my mind isn't coming so fast
And I ain't so dumb as some people think

'cause when they're wiping their silver spoons
Palming the men for some bread
I'll be laughing, way way out of my headback to top
I'm So Sleepy
I'm so sleepy, yeah
I'm so sleepy, yeah
I could lay my head on a piece of lead
And imagine it was a springy bed
'cause I'm sleepy, sleepy

Soon I'm gonna slip away
In the night I feel it creeping, creeping, creeping

I'm so sleepy yeah
I'm so sleepy yeah
I could lay my head on a piece of lead
And imagine it was a springy bed
'cause I'm sleepy, sleepy

I can't keep my mind away from my dreams,
I hear them calling, calling, calling
Soon I'm gonna slip away
Soon I'm gonna slip away
Soon I'm gonna slip away
In the night I'm gonna slip away
I wont fight it, I'll just ride it

I'm so sleepy yeah
I'm so sleepy yeah
I could lay my head on a piece of lead
And imagine it was a springy bed
'cause I'm sleepy, sleepy
Yeahback to top
Northern Wind
There is a wind, my billy, and it's awful strong
Come for you, and anyone who's helped you along.

But I want to live, live, live and let the stars shine bright
Yes, I want to live, live, live and let it on alright

And when that bird sings from over that silver wall
I don't want to fight it, billy, 'cause I want to go

There's a northern wind, billy, blowin' up a southern change
And a northern wind really makin' me feel kinda strange
There's a northern wind, billy, blowin' up a southern change
And a northern wind really makin' me feel kinda strange

And with this gun goes everything I want to say
Not for you, but for anyone who takes it away
Let it fill his life, life, life until there's nothing left
Let it kill his wife, wife, wife until he goes to bed

And when that bird sings from over that silver wall
I don't want to fight it, billy, 'cause I want to go

There's a northern wind, billy, blowin' up a southern change
And a northern wind really makin' me feel kinda strange
There's a northern wind, billy, blowin' up a southern change
And a northern wind really makin' me feel kinda strangeback to top
The Laughing Apple
Slowly let me tell you a story of a tree
An apple tree,

Once in a summertime garden lived a little apple tree
And the man who owned it wanted it to be picked
So he sent forth to hire me

Well, I've travelled the mountains, and I've travelled the sea
But a never in my travelling days
Have I ever seen a little apple smile at me!

Laugh, oh laugh a little apple
Autumn is waitin', you'd better be careful,
For it will bring you down
If it ever sees you wearing a frown

So laugh, laugh a little apple

Well all the apples were hidin'
Frightened that they might be plucked
And everytime that somebody passed
All except that one little apple ducked

Well, I've travelled the mountains, and I've travelled the sea
But a never in my travelling days
Have I ever seen a little apple smile at me!

Laugh, oh laugh a little apple
Autumn is waitin', you'd better be careful,
For it will bring you down
If it ever sees you wearing a frown

So laugh, laugh a little appleback to top
Smash Your Heart
You cut me deep,
But now I'm gonna see you weep, yeah
This broken man
Is gonna do the best he can, yeah

I'll see you pay, before I give you my heart
Baby I'll do without
There'll come a day
When I'll smash your heart
And then turn away

You played with me like a toy
And a little baby
After I broke
You just didn't want to know, yeah

I'll see you pay, before I give you my heart
Baby I'll do without
There'll come a day
When I'll smash your heart
And then turn away

My time will come,
And you'll know when it's begun, yeah

You'll know because
You're gonna be just where I was, yeah

I'll see you pay, before I give you my heart
Baby I'll do without
There'll come a day
When I'll smash your heart
And then turn awayback to top
Moonstone
Well, first I have to tell you that I'm not insane
And that once I was a famous archaeologist {named}
{who ran} a recent expedition in a distant land
I just happened to passin' my hand in the sand

And then I stopped, looked, and then I was hooked

I saw a flash, then a sparkle from a moonstone
Then the mist started, started to clear
I saw a face, a face in the moonstone
Then it started to disappear

Well, I walked and walked and never talked
For many days
And without a friend the desert is a lonely place
I was just about to turn around and make way home
When something told me that I had to see it again

Avuray....etc.back to top
The First Cut Is the Deepest
I would have given you all of my heart
But there's someone who's torn it apart
And she's taking almost all that I've got
But if you want, I'll try to love again
Baby I'll try to love again but I know

The first cut is the deepest, baby I know
The first cut is the deepest
'cause when it comes to being lucky she's cursed
When it comes to lovin' me she's worse
But when it comes to being loved she's first
That's how I know

The first cut is the deepest, baby I know
The first cut is the deepest

I still want you by my side
Just to help me dry the tears that I've cried
Cause I'm sure gonna give you a try
And if you want, I'll try to love again
But baby, I'll try to love again, but I know

The first cut is the deepest, baby I know
The first cut is the deepest

'cause when it comes to being lucky she's cursed
When it comes to lovin' me she's worse
But when it comes to being loved she's first
That's how I know

The first cut is the deepest, baby I know
The first cut is the deepestback to top
I'm Gonna Be King
I've been pushed around
Made to look a clown
But now, now I know
It is time for me to start to grow

I'm gonna be king
I'm gonna see things right
I'm gonna be king
And you will be my bride

I'll show everyone
That my time will come
If you wait for me
I will show the world what I can be

I'm gonna be king
I'm gonna see things right
I'm gonna be king
And you will be my bride

Love does funny things
And to me it brings
Strength to carry through
And to make my name a pride to use

I'm gonna be king
I'm gonna see things right
I'm gonna be king
And you will be my brideback to top
Ceylon City
I'm going home to the town where I was born
Where little children laughed as they sang
A happy song
In the little town of ceylon,
Ceylon city, ceylon city

I've got a boat , I hope it's still afloat
With rusty sails, and an old wooden oar
It goes along, in the little town of ceylon

Ceylon city.....

My daddy will be waiting there
My sister will be combing down her silver hair
My mamma will be waiting there
Serving lunch to my brother, but he's nowhere

Ceylon city....back to top
Blackness of the Night
In the blackness of the night
I seem to wander endlessly
With a hope burning out deep inside
I'm a fugitive, community has driven me out
For this bad, bad world I'm beginning to doubt
I'm alone and there is no one by my side

In the blackness of the night
I see a shadow passing by
From the heels of an old soldier boy.
There's no comprimising
And his eyes are black as the sky
For this bad, bad world he is going to die.
He's alone and there is no one by his side

In the blackness of the night
I see a sparkle of a star
From the sweet silver tear of a child
And she's clutching at a photograph of long, long ago
When her parents were happy she was too young to know
She's alone and there is no one by her side

I'm alone and there is no one by my side

In the blackness of the night
I seem to wander endlessly
With a hope burning out deep inside
I'm a fugitive, community has driven me out
For this bad, bad world I'm beginning to doubt
I'm alone, and there is no one by my sideback to top
Come on Baby (Shift That Log)
Why don't you come over?
It's lonely at the wooden lodge
Why don't you come and see our baby?
You haven't seen her for so long

Come on baby, shift that log
Come on baby, wash that dog
Give me all the love you've got, to me
Come on baby, shift that log
Come on baby, wash that dog
Give me all the love you've got, to me

There in the back woods
we had our little piece of land
but everything wasn't so groovy
Not when you had to dirty your hands

Come on baby, shift that log
Come on baby, wash that dog
Give me all the love you've got, to me
Come on baby, shift that log
Come on baby, wash that dog
Give me all the love you've got, to me

It's lonely at the wooden lodge
So why don't you share my bed

Come on baby, shift that log
Come on baby, wash that dog
Give me all the love you've got, to me
Come on baby, shift that log
Come on baby, wash that dog
Give me all the love you've got, to meback to top
I Love Them All
While lookin' into my drawer only yesterday
You know, the things that I saw made me cry
I saw the pictures and letters,
I should have known better
Than to try to deny

I love them all
I love them all
And if they came again
I'd do the same again
'cause I'm that kind of a guy

And as I walked through the park where we used to play
You know, the bench and the tree are still there
And the pictures that you did,
Why am I so stupid?
They wont ever disappear

I love them all
I love them all
And if they came again
I'd do the same again
'cause I'm that kind of a guyback to top
Image of Hell
You left me wearing nothing but a shell
You left me wearing nothing but a shell
This feeling you've left me,
Is the image of hell

I thought that you loved me
Ah, but then I never could tell
I thought that you loved me
But then I never could tell
This feeling you left me
Is the image of hell

If you loved me like you said that you did
Oh, then darling you couldn't have done the things
That you did
You walk by my door, but you don't ring my bell
You walk by my door, but you don't ring my bell
This feeling you've left me, is the image of hellback to top
Lovely City
Lovely city, when do you laugh?
Stoney people, what do you have?

Well, you ride around on a bright shiny cloud
And you think that you've found true happiness
There's no method in your mind
And your tempers are kind
Is it too much to ask to give it a rest?

Lovely city, when do you laugh?
Stoney people , what do you have?

I'm a part of you, you don't wanna be
I'm an unexpected visitor who's dropped in for tea
But I'm not so low you don't even know that I'm here
You can't even see

Lovely city, when do you laugh?
Stoney people, what do you have?back to top
The View from the Top
The view from the top can be oh so very lonely
And you can be missing such a lot that could be yours

Why can't I stop forgetting myself?
Why am I always trying to be like somebody else
Why can't I love you?
Why bother flying high above you
I know where you are

The view from the top can be oh so very lonely
And you can be missin' such a lot that could be yours

And who's going to miss me?
There'll only be myself to blame
You know I'd love to hold you tight
And love you all the night
But I don't even know ...my name

La la la da la ....

Why can't I stop forgetting myself?
Why am I always trying to be like somebody else?
Why can't I love you?
Why bother flying high above you
I know where you are

The view from the top can be oh so very lonely
And you can be missin' such a lot that could be yoursback to top
Here Comes My Wife
Well here comes my wife
And that's the story of my life
She haunts me though she don't want me
She follows badly in disguise
But it's not hard to recognize her 'cause she's cryin'
She looks like dyin' on me

Her father's rich, I think a millionaire
But money doesn't make him better
It just makes him better to be there
So, you can tell him that it's quite alright with me
No no, it's quite alright with me

Well here comes my wife
And that's the story of my life
She haunts me though she don't want me
She follows badly in disguise
But it's not hard to recognize her 'cause she's cryin'
She looks like dyin' on me

See that shadow dancin' on the floor
She's coming up behind me
How I'd love to tell her she's a bore,
But I tell her that it's quite alright, no no, it's quite alright with me

Well here comes my wife
And that's the story of my life
She haunts me though she don't want me
She follows badly in disguise
But it's not hard to recognize her 'cause she's cryin'
She looks like dyin' on me.....
Oooh oohhback to top
It's a Super (Dupa) Life
See the funny little people running 'round in circles
throwing bombs as they do
See the funny side of it
they're heading straight for you

See the funny little holes they're making
looking like craters on the moon
See the funny side of it
we'll be living in them soon

But it's a super life, a super dupa dupa life we live
yes it's a super life, a super dupa dupa life we live
but it's getting pretty near the end
cause with a super life you will borrow everything you lend
so there's never anything to spend
you're broke, you dope you

See the funny little flying saucers we found
painted up just for you
see the funny man inside
his color matches too

See the silly little camera he loves
shooting pictures with all day
see the funny side of it
his friends are on their way

But it's a super life, a super dupa dupa life we live
yes it's a super life, a super dupa dupa life we live
but it's getting pretty near the end
cause with a super life you will borrow everything you lend
so there's never anything to spend
you're broke, you dope you

Baby it's a super life, a super dupa dupa life we live
Yes it's a super life, a super dupa dupa life we liveback to top
Where Are You
I know I think a lot
But somehow it just doesn't help
It only makes it worse

The more I think
The more I know
The more it hurts

With only solitude to meet me like a friend
Oh, where are you?
Where are you ? where are you?

Maybe she sits alone
Beyond the storm
Across the raging torrent of the sea
She knows I want her
And she knows I'll always be...
How can I live without the love I cannot see
Oh where are you?
Where are you ?
Where are you?

Oooooooohhhh

I know there's someone there
I hear her breathe
Behind the silence of the dark
But I know that I wont see
'til we open up our eyes together
She'll look at me
What a moment that moment will be!

And she looks so light
I could fly her through the night

Oooh

I know I think a lot
But somehow it just doesn't help
It only goes to show
That what you never miss
You never know
But I have loved you from the moment that we knew
Oh, I love you
I love you
But where are you?back to top
A Bad Night
Baby, you're cool
And even though you've never been to school
I know you're fine
But then you change your mind
Then you start on driftin'
And fall on behind

You've been my girl
You've been mine
All of the time

A bad night
Its gonna be
A bad night
I guarantee
Tonight I'll have
A bad night
I know I shall

Ah, 'cause you left me waiting in the corner
And I know you're never gonna come back for me
And though you said you loved me
And said you needed all of my love
A bad, bad, bad, bad, bad night
Its gonna be

A bad night
It's gonna be
A bad night
I guarantee
Tonight I'll have
A bad night
I know I shall

Maybe if the weather was just a little better
It might not have happened that way
But the situation was gettin' pretty bad, bad
A bad bad bad bad bad night it's gonna be

A bad night
It's gonna be
A bad night
I guarantee
Tonight I'll have
A bad night
I know I shall
I know I shallback to top
