Wait Till the Summer Comes Along
I've been cryin' all the winter.
I've been waiting for some good to come my way,
But I'll wait till the summer comes along.
Dear lord, have I done so much wrong.

How can I go on,
Wondering what I did wrong,
Can it be too much to ask?
Please, oh please, let it be.

If the summer'll come my way,
Will I find someone to take the place of [? ]?
But I'll wait till the summer comes along.
Dear lord, tell me what could I've done wrong.

Can it be that she,
Never wanted to,
Break some poor mother's heart?
Please, oh please, let it be.

I know my summer'll never come.
I know I'll cry until my dying day has come.
Let the winter roll along.
I've got nothing left but song.

Oh, oh, what's happened?
Oh, oh, what's happened?back to top
Such a Shame
All the good times have all been in vain,
It's a shame, such a shame, such a shame.

It's a shame,
'cause I didn't wanna cause you any pain,
But I know that it wouldn't be the same
All the good times have all been in vain,
It's a shame, such a shame, such a shame.

It's a shame,
'cause I didn't intend to do you wrong,
I'd come back but it wouldn't last for long.
I would, if I could, but I can't.
It's a shame, such a shame, such a shame.

It's a shame, such a shame,
'cause I swore I'd never let you down,
But I was the one who was doing wrong,
It's a shame, such a shame, such a shame.

'cause I didn't intend to do you wrong,
I'd come back but it wouldn't last for long.
I would, if I could, but I can't.
It's a shame, such a shame, such a shame.

It's a shame, such a shame,
'cause I swore I'd never let you down,
But I was the one who was doing wrong,
It's a shame, such a shame, such a shame.

'cause I didn't wanna cause you any pain,
But I know that it wouldn't be the same
All the good times have all been in vain,
It's a shame, such a shame, such a shame.back to top
See My Friends
See my friends,
See my friends,
Layin' 'cross the river,

See my friends,
See my friends,
Layin' 'cross the river,

She is gone,
She is gone and now there's no one left
'cept my friends,
Layin' 'cross the river,

She just went,
She just went,
Went across the river.

Now she's gone,
Now she's gone,
Wish that I'd gone with her.

She is gone,
She is gone and now there's no one left
'cept my friends,
Layin' 'cross the river,

She is gone and now there's no one else to take her place
She is gone and now there's no one else to love
'cept my friends,
Layin' 'cross the river,

See my friends,
See my friends,
Layin' 'cross the river,

See my friends,
See my friends,
Layin' 'cross the river,back to top
Dedicated Follower of Fashion
They seek him here, they seek him there,
His clothes are loud, but never square.
It will make or break him so he's got to buy the best,
'cause he's a dedicated follower of fashion.

And when he does his little rounds,
'round the boutiques of london town,
Eagerly pursuing all the latest fads and trends,
'cause he's a dedicated follower of fashion.

Oh yes he is (oh yes he is), oh yes he is (oh yes he is).
He thinks he is a flower to be looked at,
And when he pulls his frilly nylon panties right up tight,
He feels a dedicated follower of fashion.

Oh yes he is (oh yes he is), oh yes he is (oh yes he is).
There's one thing that he loves and that is flattery.
One week he's in polka-dots, the next week he is in stripes.
'cause he's a dedicated follower of fashion.

They seek him here, they seek him there,
In regent street and leicester square.
Everywhere the carnabetian army marches on,
Each one an dedicated follower of fashion.

Oh yes he is (oh yes he is), oh yes he is (oh yes he is).
His world is built 'round discoteques and parties.
This pleasure-seeking individual always looks his best
'cause he's a dedicated follower of fashion.

Oh yes he is (oh yes he is), oh yes he is (oh yes he is).
He flits from shop to shop just like a butterfly.
In matters of the cloth he is as fickle as can be,
'cause he's a dedicated follower of fashion.
He's a dedicated follower of fashion.
He's a dedicated follower of fashion.back to top
Who'll Be the Next in Line
Who'll be the next in line?
Who'll be the next in line for heartache?
Who'll make the same mistakes I made over you?

Who'll be the next in line?
Who'll be the next in line?
For you?

Who'll be the next in line?
Who'll be the next to watch your love fade?
All your affections finally fade away.

There'll be no use in sighing.
Who'll be the next in line?
For you?

One day you'll find out when I'm gone,
I was the best one you had,
I was the one who gave you love.

Who'll be the next in line?
Who'll be the next in line for heartaches?
Who'll make the same mistakes I made over you?

There'll be no use in sighing.
Who'll be the next in line?
For you?

One day you'll find out when I'm gone,
I was the best one you had,
I was the one who gave you love.

Who'll be the next in line?
Who'll be the next in line for heartaches?
Who'll make the same mistakes I made over you?

Who'll be the next in line?
Who'll be the next in line?
For you?

Don't You Fret
Don't you fret, now, I'll be there
I'll be there to hold your hand.
I'll be there to see the sunrise,
As it lightens up the sky.

Don't you fret, now, I'll be there,
I'll be there to put you right.
I'll be there to hold you tightly,
When the sun goes down at night.

I can't wait until the day,
I'll come home to you again.
For my love won't ever fade,
I will always feel the same.

Don't you fret, don't you fret,
I'll come home to you again.
Don't you fret, don't you fret,
I'll come home to you again.

Make a brand new pot of tea,
Make my favorite kind of dish.
Do the things that I remember,
That'll make my dearest wish.

I can't wait until the day,
I'll come home to you again.
For my love won't ever fade,
I will always feel the same.

So don't you fret love,
Don't you fret love, no more.
Don't you fret love, no more.back to top
I Need You
I need you,
I need you more than birds need the sky.
I need you, it's true little girl,
That you can lift the tears from my eyes.

But if you ever tell me good-bye,
I'll break down and you'll hear me cry.
I need you,
More than anybody else has needed anyone before.

I need you,
There's no one else to stand in your place.
I need you, you know little girl,
That you can keep the smile on my face.

But if you ever tell me good-bye,
I'll break down and you'll hear me cry.
I need you,
More than anybody else has needed anyone before.

I need you,
There's no one else to stand in your place.
I need you, you know little girl,
That you can keep the smile on my face.

But if you ever tell me good-bye,
I'll break down and you'll hear me cry.
I need you,
More than anybody else has needed anyone before.
More than anybody else has needed anyone before.
I need you,
I need you,
I need you.back to top
It's Alright
They want your mind and your body
But they don't understand
And don't care much about it
Gotta work for your country
Society's built on concrete and money
If this room was to vanish
And the toys of man turned to civilized dust
There'd still be you and me, honey
With our history gone
But the spirit lives on

Build those highways, build those cars
On a planet full of scrap metal
There'd better be life on mars

Chorus:
It's alright, it's alright
If you don't think about it
It's alright
If you don't look at it, it's alright

How time slips away
Live by the good book
That's what the wise men say
But where does it leave us
Were they right or were they wrong
Gotta have hope, gotta carry on

It's alright, it's alright
It's alright, it's alright

They want your soul and your spirit
Make them understand
These things they never can have
Gotta work for your family
A community built on trust, not money
If this town was to vanish
And the office blocks were just turned into ashes
They'd be you and me, honey
With the will to survive
And the spirit lives on

Build those factories
Plants and cars
On a planet so desecrated
There'd better be life on mars

Chorus

How time slips away
Live by the good book
That's what the wise men say
But where does it leave us
Were they right or were they wrong
Gotta have hope
Gotta carry on

It's alright, it's alrightback to top
I'm Not Like Everybody Else
I won't take all that they hand me down,
And make out a smile, though I wear a frown,
And I won't take it all lying down,
'cause once I get started I go to town.

'cause I'm not like everybody else,
I'm not like everybody else,
I'm not like everybody else,
I'm not like everybody else.

And I don't want to ball about like everybody else,
And I don't want to live my life like everybody else,
And I won't say that I feel fine like everybody else,
'cause I'm not like everybody else,
I'm not like everybody else.

But darling, you know that I love you true,
Do anything that you want me to,
Confess all my sins like you want me to,
There's one thing that I will say to you,
I'm not like everybody else,
I'm not like everybody else.

I'm not like everybody else,
I'm not like everybody else
And I don't want to ball about like everybody else,
And I don't want to live my life like everybody else,
And I won't say that I feel fine like everybody else,
'cause I'm not like everybody else,
I'm not like everybody else.

Like everybody else,
Like everybody else,
Like everybody else,
Like everybody else.

If you all want me to settle down,
Slow up and stop all my running 'round,
Do everything like you want me to,
There's one thing that I will say to you,
I'm not like everybody else,
I'm not like everybody else.

I'm not like everybody else,
I'm not like everybody else.
And I don't want to ball about like everybody else,
And I don't want to live my life like everybody else,
And I won't say that I feel fine like everybody else,
'cause I'm not like everybody else,
I'm not like everybody else.

Like everybody else (like everybody else),
Like everybody else (like everybody else),
Like everybody else (like everybody else),
Like everybody else.back to top
