“What Are We Going To Do?” Lyrics

What are we going to do if the word gets out?
What are we going to do if it gets about?
What are we going to do if your dad finds out we’re in love?

Well, what did your sister say when she saw us kiss?
What have I got to pay so she won’t talk about this?
And what are we going to do if your dad finds out we’re in love?

They’ve been saying wait until we’re ready (Ready)
But we know we’re ready now
So we’ll go steady anyhow

So what are we going to do when the word gets out?
How are they going to stop us when it gets about?
So what are we going to do? We going to tell them we’re in love
Yeah, that’s what we going to do, we going to tell them we’re in love

[break]

They’ve been saying wait until we’re ready (Ready)
But we know we’re ready now
So we’ll go steady anyhow

So what are we going to do when the word gets out?
How are they going to stop us when it gets about?
So what are we going to do? We going to tell them we’re in love
Yeah, that’s what we going to do, we going to tell them we’re in love
Yeah, that’s what we going to do, we going to tell them we’re in love
Yeah, that’s what we going to do, we going to tell them we’re in love

“Maybe It’s Because I’m A Londoner” Lyrics

Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I love London so
Well, maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I think of her wherever I go

I get a funny feeling inside of me
While walking up and down
Well, maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I love the London town

Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I love London so
Well, maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I think of her wherever I go

I get a funny feeling inside of me
While walking up and down
Well, maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I love the London town

“When I’m away from London, I can’t help thinking of some of my favorite places. Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden, changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, and late at night, the fog that settles softly over London Bridge.”

I get a funny feeling inside of me
While walking up and down
Well, maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I love the London town
That I love London town
That I love the London town

“Put Me Amongst The Girls” Lyrics

When I was a very little boy
And me mother sent me off to school
I raised an awful lot of noise
If the teacher put me amongst the boys

I would be anything but good
And then I’d sit and moping all the day
A-with sighs and teardrops in my eyes
To the teacher, coaxingly, I’d say
Oh, teacher

Put me amongst the girls
Put me amongst the girls
Do me a favor, do
You know I’d do the same for you

So won’t you put me amongst the girls?
Those with the curly curls
A-well-a, they’d enjoy themselves, and so would I
If you’d put me amongst the girls

Thomas Harry Jones came up to London town
He meant to be a member of the police force
Well, his feet were regulation feet
Just the feet to ornament a beat

“Tom, Tom, put your helmet on
Your duty lies abeat”, the seargent said
“You’re tough, so get among the rough”
Tom thought of Piccadilly, and he sighed
Oh, seargent

Put me amongst the girls
Put me amongst the girls
Do a-me a favor, do
Well, you a-know I’d do the same for you

So won’t you put me amongst the girls?
Those with the curly curls
A-well-a, they’d enjoy themselves, and so would I
If you’d put me amongst the girls

Seth Biggs was such a pious man
He never stayed up after two am
Stage doors, he used to hang about
’Til he caught a cold that knocked him out

A pal said, “Cheer up, you’ll soon be dead
We’ll plant you ’neath the daisies in the sun”
Poor Seth, though gasping for his breath
Said, “If there’s any planting to be done”
All together now

Put me amongst the girls
Oh, won’t you put me amongst the girls?
Oh, won’t you do a-me a favor, do?
Well, you a-know I’d do the same for you

So won’t you put-a me amongst the girls?
Those with the curly curls
A-well-a, they’d enjoy themselves, and so would I
If you’d put me amongst the girls
Put me amongst the girls

“Theme For A New Love” Lyrics

I saw you only once, and I knew
There could be no one for me but you
Yours was the face I wanted to see
Wanted to touch so tenderly
You smiled and took me by surprise
And you captured my heart with your eyes

The way you walk, the tilt of your head
The sound of your voice and the things you’ve said
For you’ve so many secrets, so much mystery to everyone else
But you share them with me
You’re so much like a kitten that I hold in my arm
When we laugh and you tease, I’m taken by your charms

You’re lovely and charming and loving and sweet
You captivate everyone you meet
Your laughter’s like music, you’re always such fun
You’re all of my dreams rolled into one

Then there are times when you’re moody, times when you’re blue
When the deepest dark black of night is you
Yet, all of these moods, love, help you to see and understand what’s inside of me

You’re so soft to my touch
And our love is so new
How can I tell you how much I love you?
You’re the raindrops that fall and refresh everything
For when I am with you, it is eternally spring
I love you
I love you
I love you

“It Ain’t Me Babe” Lyrics

Go away from my window
Leave at your own chosen speed
I’m not the one you want, babe
I’m not the one you need

You say you’re lookin’ for someone
Never weak but always strong
To protect you and defend you
Whether you are right or wrong
Someone to open each and every door

It ain’t me, babe
I said a-no, no, no
It ain’t me, babe
It ain’t me you’re lookin’ for, babe

Go lightly from the ledge, babe
Go lightly on the ground
I’m not the one you want, babe
I’ll only let you down

You say you’re lookin’ for someone
Who promises never to part
Someone to close his eyes for you
Someone to close his heart
Someone who will die for you and more

It ain’t me, babe
I said a-no, no, no
It ain’t me, babe
It ain’t me you’re lookin’ for, babe

Go melt back in the night, babe
Everything inside is made of stone
There’s nothing in here movin’
And anyway, I’m not alone

You say you’re lookin’ for someone
Who’ll pick you up each time you fall
To gather flowers constantly
And to come each time you call
A lover for your life and nothing more

It ain’t me, babe
I said a-no, no, no
It ain’t me, babe
It ain’t me you’re lookin’ for, babe
It ain’t me you’re lookin’ for, babe
I said a-no, no, no
It ain’t me, babe
I said a-no, no, no
It ain’t me, babe
I said a-no, no, no
It ain’t me, babe

“Face Up To It” Lyrics

Face up to it
He’s made a fool of you
Since he stole you from me
That’s all he’s tried to do

Face up to it
He cheats behind your back
Then lies when he denies
He’d do a thing like that

But if your heart plays it smart
You can still have love that’s true
Just face up to it
He’s not the boy for you

Face up to it
Show him you’re not afraid
You’ll take him by surprise
And then his masquerade

Open your eyes, girl, get wise
There is something you must see
Just face up to it
Your one to love is me

Face up to it
He’s made a fool of you
Since he stole you from me
That’s all he’s tried to do

Open your eyes, girl, get wise
There is something you must see
Just face up to it
Your one to love is me
Your one to love is me

Dream girl, I love you (I love you)
Little angel, can’t you see I do? (See I do)
Dream girl, make my dreams come true
Tell me that you love me too

“Baby It’s Me” Lyrics

If you’re going to love somebody, baby, it’s me
And if you’re dreaming of somebody, baby, it’s me
Well, I’ve got arms that hold you tight
I’ve got lips that kiss good night
And if you’re going to love somebody, baby, it’s me

If you want a love that’s faithful, baby, it’s me
Well, every star above’ll tell you, baby, it’s me
Well, I’ve got a heart that’s really true
My heart wants to be true to you
And if you’re going to love somebody, baby, it’s me

A-well, I met you for the first time yesterday
And then we got along just fine
I wonder if you’ll also feel this way
I’ve got to make somebody mine, oh, baby

If you wonder who can love you, baby, it’s me
I’m the one for you, so tell me, baby, it’s me
Well, I can make you really mine
You could love me all the time
And are you going to love somebody? And, baby, it’s me

[break]

Well, I’ve got a heart that’s really true
My heart wants to be true to you
And if you’re going to love somebody, baby, it’s me (If you’re going to love somebody, baby, it’s me)
And if you’re going to love somebody, baby, it’s me (If you’re going to love somebody, baby, it’s me)
And if you’re going to love somebody, baby, it’s me (If you’re going to love somebody, baby, it’s me)

“My Dad” Lyrics

He isn’t much in the eyes of world
He’ll never make history
No, he isn’t much in the eyes of the world
But he is the world to me

My dad
Now here is a man
To me, he is everything strong
No, he can’t do wrong
My dad

My dad
Now he understands
When I bring him troubles to share
Oh, he’s always there
My dad

When I was small, I felt ten feet tall
When I walked by his side
And everyone would say, “That’s his son”
And my heart would burst with pride

My dad
Oh, I love him so
And I only hope that someday
My own son will say
My dad
Now here is a man

“This Bouquet” Lyrics

This bouquet of flowers didn’t come from the flower shop
I know they’re not a lot to offer to you
But they’re all that I’ve got for you

This bouquet of flowers that I picked for you today
Help me tell the things to you
I could never say to you

Oh, I can’t bring a diamond ring, a pearl in an oyster shell
But I hope that this bouquet
Will tell you just as well, I love you

There are treasures in this world I’d like to give to you
But today, this bouquet’s the best that I can do

Please take my bouquet
That I offer you today

[break]

This bouquet of flowers that I picked for you today
Help me tell the things to you
I could never say

Please take my bouquet
That I offer you today
Oh, won’t you please take my bouquet
That I offer you today?

“Take Me To Paradise” Lyrics

Take me, take me to paradise
Kiss me so I’ll be starry-eyed
Take me, take me to paradise
It’s only where the bluebirds fly
Hold my hand until I die

Take me, take me away with you
Let me fly like the angels do
Take me, take me to paradise
And press your lips against my lips
Promise me we’ll stay like this
Forever

Take me, take me to paradise
Oh, won’t you press your lips against my lips
Promise me we’ll stay like this

Take me, take me to paradise and kiss me
Take me, take me to paradise and love me

“The Girl From Chelsea” Lyrics

In Chelsea, there’s a girl
Working in a little coffee shop there
She’s got such a pretty smile
And every chance I get, I stop there

I can’t get her off my mind
I’m so in love with the girl from Chelsea
Oh yeah (The girl from Chelsea)
Oh yeah, the girl from Chelsea

She doesn’t care for me
I’m just a hang around who’s there to talk with
And though I wait until they close
There’s always someone else she’d rather walk with

But I love her just the same (Just the same)
I can’t forget the girl from Chelsea
Oh yeah (The girl from Chelsea)
Oh yeah, the girl from Chelsea

I buy her little presents
But she wants none of them
And her friends don’t like me much
’Cause I’m not one of them

If I’d a pocket full of gold
She’s the girl I’d give it all away for
She’s got everything I want
Seeing her is what I live each day for

I know she can’t be mine (Can’t be mine)
Oh, but I love the girl from Chelsea
Oh yeah (The girl from Chelsea)
Oh yeah, the girl from Chelsea (The girl from Chelsea)
The girl from Chelsea (The girl from Chelsea)
The girl from Chelsea (The girl from Chelsea)
The girl from Chelsea
