Put Me On
Written by james young, tommy shaw, dennis deyoung
Lead vocals by james young, dennis deyoung

Put me on I'm your brand new record album
Side one, cut one listen to the songs
Play me loud don't you worry 'bout your nieghbors
Hope I make you feel good all day long
All day long

Put me on and play me loud
I'm the madman screaming in your living room
I'll soon be coming to your town
To sing and play a little tune

I said put me on and playme loud
Turn your stereo up all the way
All the way
Now your body's immersed in sound
So hear the synthesizers play

And now you're in the mood
Let the melody just drift your cares away
It's got to do you good
As it mesmerizes you in it's own way
So drift away...back to top
Mademoiselle
Written by tommy shaw
Lead vocals by tommy shaw

Tell me where are you going
Sweet mademoiselle
To london or paris
To the grand hotel

Where do you go at the end of the day
Where do you go, when you spend time away
To islands in the tropic sands
Or pleasure trips to distant lands
You're searching for a dream
Well maybe it's me.

I tell you hello
And what do you say
As I stop you go
There's no reason to stay

It all began so harmlessly
You gave me love so easily
I never realized you were just spending time

Tell me where are you going
Sweet mademoiselle
To london or paris
To the grand hotel

Even though you're far away
I think about you every day
And wonder if you're thinking of me
In a fond memory
Sweet mademoiselle

Tell me where are you going
Sweet mademoiselle
To london or paris
Ou montreal

Jennifer
Written by dennis deyoung
Lead vocals by dennis deyoung

Jennifer
She drinks her sherry wine
She keeps her lady's love for me all the time
She's seventeen, barely old enough to cry
A child in her father's eyes
A woman every night

Her love,
Gives me the power
Her dreams carry me on
Jennifer, so inviting
That I sing

Jennifer
She took me by surprise
She told me that she's much too young to keep me satisfied
Jennifer, ah so delicate and shy
A child in her mother's eyes but
A woman every night

Her love,
Gives me the power
Her dreams carry me on
Jennifer, so inviting
That I sing...back to top
Crystal Ball
Written by tommy shaw
Lead vocals by tommy shaw

I used to like to walk the straight and narrow line
I used to think that everything was fine
Sometimes I'd like to sit and gaze for days through sleepless dreams
All alone and trapped in time
All alone and trapped in time

I wonder what tomorrow has in mind for me
Or am I even in it's mind at all
Perhaps I'll get a chance to look ahead and see
Soon as I find myself a crystal ball
Soon as I find myself a crystal ball

Tell me, tell me where I'm going
I don't know where I've been
Tell me, tell me, won't you tell me
And then tell me again
My heart is breaking, my body's aching
And I don't know where to go
Tell me, tell me, won't you tell me
I've just got to know

Crystal ball
There's so many things I need to know
Crystal ball
There's so many things I've got to know
Crystal ball

[extra verse used occasionally live]
If you should see me walking
Through your dreams at night
Would you please direct me
Where I ought to be
I've been looking for a crystal ball
To shed the light
To find a future in me...
To find a future in me...

Crystal ball
There's so many things I need to know
Crystal ball
There's so many things I've got to know

Shooz
Written by tommy shaw
Lead vocals by tommy shaw

Well it's friday nite and the streets
Are full of the weekends with their green
Soldier boys looking left and right
At all the sights there to be seen
Well you can be there's a loaner
Who'd love to see you be so sweet
That's why I'm telling you to get on
Your shooz and get out there on the street
And get your rockin'
Rock n'roll shooz
Up and down around they go with
Their heads turning all around
Way down there on the corner
There's a cadillac that's easy to be found
Way down there in chicago, down
Along division street
The boys are just looking for a girl
Like you to make their stay in town a treat
So get your rockin'
Rock n'roll shooz
They all love it baby, they keep
Comin' back for more
Rock n'roll shoozback to top
This Old Man
Written by dennis deyoung
Lead vocals by dennis deyoung

This old man
He worked for thirty years with
Two strong hands, in the factory light his
Lunch box held all his needs with
Coffee sandwiches and dreams
For me

This old man
He taught me many times
To undertand, that showing love is simply
Nothing you should have o hide
Don't keep your feelings locked inside
He said

When I was young
I dreamed a young man's dreams
I saw in you reyes
The things I'd never seen
But now I grow old
But I don't really mind
Cause can't you see with my family
We'll share these timeless memoriesback to top
Clair de Lune/Ballerina
(Dennis DeYoung)

It seems you finally had to choose
I guess there was no other way
Between my love and satin shoes
I knew the words you'd have to say

It all began so long ago
That the memory's hardly clear
But when I seen you dance I know
Half your love I'll always share

Ballerina when you dance there's music
Colored lights illuminate your movement
Crowded halls anticipate your gentle smile

Ballerina from the first I knew that
You would always have to dance I knew that
There would surely come a day when you would go
Baby I know...

Dance for me, I beg of you, dance for me
Dance for me, ballerina, dance for me

Ballerina when you dance there's music
Colored lights illuminate your movement
Crowded halls anticipate your gentle smileback to top
