I Took My Baby Home
Well I took my baby home
She said don't you leave me alone
She kissed me on the cheek and I moaned
I said I wo-wo-wo-wo-won't

Well, she said, baby I know what's best
She said I could do with a rest[? ]
Then she put her hand on my chest
I said I wo-wo-wo-wo-won't

She had some pile-drivin' kisses
They really knocked me out
They knocked me oh-oh-over
She had a hug like a vice
She squeezes once or twice and I moan

So when I took my baby home
She said don't you leave me alone
She kissed me on the cheek and I moaned
I said I wo-wo-wo-wo-won't
Wo-wo-wo-wo-won't
Wo-wo-wo-wo-won't
I said I wo-wo-wo-wo-won't

She had some pile-drivin' kisses
They really knocked me out
They knocked me oh-oh-over
She had a hug like a vice
She squeezes once or twice and I moan

So when I took my baby home
She said don't you leave me alone
She kissed me on the cheek and I moaned

You Still Want Me
When you passed me by
You didn't look my way
But one thing I know
Our love is here to stay

And you still want me
And you still want me

You wanted the sky
But I couldn't reach so high
I gave you my love
But you found some other guy

And you still want me
And you still want me

I know because the smile that's on your lips
Is for me
They were meant for me to kiss
And you were meant to love me darling

I'll be around
When other guys have gone
I'll tell you once more
How I still love you so

And you still want me
And you still want me

Is for me
They were meant for me to kiss

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 carry on

I Gotta Move
I don't wanna get left behind

A Well Respected Man
'cause he gets up in the morning,
And he goes to work at nine,
And he comes back home at five-thirty,
Gets the same train every time.
'cause his world is built 'round punctuality,
It never fails.

And he's oh, so good,
And he's oh, so fine,
And he's oh, so healthy,
In his body and his mind.
He's a well respected man about town,
Doing the best things so conservatively.

And his mother goes to meetings,
While his father pulls the maid,
And she stirs the tea with councilors,
While discussing foreign trade,
And she passes looks, as well as bills
At every suave young man

And he's oh, so fine,
And he's oh, so healthy,
In his body and his mind.

Doing the best things so conservatively.

And he likes his fags the best,
'cause he's better than the rest,
And his own sweat smells the best,
And he hopes to grab his father's loot,
When pater passes on.

'cause he's oh, so good,
And he's oh, so fine,
And he's oh, so healthy,
In his body and his mind.
He's a well respected man about town,
Doing the best things so conservatively.

And he plays at stocks and shares,
And he goes to the regatta,
And he adores the girl next door,
'cause he's dying to get at her,
But his mother knows the best about
The matrimonial stakes.

And he's oh, so fine,
And he's oh, so healthy,
In his body and his mind.

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.

For my love won't ever fade,
I will always feel the same.

Where Have All the Good Times Gone?
Well, lived my life and never stopped to worry 'bout a thing
Opened up and shouted out and never tried to sing
Wondering if I'd done wrong
Will this depression last for long?

Won't you tell me
Where have all the good times gone?
Where have all the good times gone?

Well, once we had an easy ride and always felt the same
Time was on our side and I had everything to gain
Let it be like yesterday
Please let me have happy days

Won't you tell me
Where have all the good times gone?
Where have all the good times gone?

Ma and pa look back at all the things they used to do
Didn't have no money and they always told the truth
Daddy didn't have no toys
And mummy didn't need no boys

Won't you tell me
Where have all the good times gone?
Where have all the good times gone?

Well, yesterday was such an easy game for you to play
But let's face it things are so much easier today
Guess you need some bringing down
And get your feet back on the ground

Won't you tell me
Where have all the good times gone?
Where have all the good times gone?
Where have all the good times gone?back to top
