“Don’t Bring Me Down” Lyrics

Don’t bring me down
Don’t bring me down, don’t bring me down

You complain and criticize
I feel I’m nothin’ in your eyes
It makes me feel like givin’ up
Because my best just ain’t good enough

Girl, I want to provide for you
And do all the things that you want me to

But don’t, oh no, don’t bring me down
I’m beggin’ ya, darlin’
No, oh no, don’t bring me down

Sacrifices I will make
I’m ready to give as well as take
The one thing I need is your respect
One thing I can’t take is your neglect

More than anything, I need your love
Then troubles are easy to rise above

But don’t, oh no, don’t bring me down
Oh no, oh no, no, no
Oh no, oh no, don’t bring me down

[break]

When you complain and criticize
I feel I’m nothin’ in your eyes
It makes me feel like givin’ up
Because my best just ain’t good enough

Girl, I want to provide for you
And do all the things that you want me to

But don’t, oh no, don’t bring me down
Oh no, oh no, no, no
Oh no, oh no, don’t bring me down, yeah

Don’t bring me down, don’t bring me down
Don’t bring me down, don’t bring me down
Don’t bring me down, don’t bring me down
Don’t bring me down, don’t bring me down

“Sometime In The Morning” Lyrics

Sometime in the morning
A simple thought may occur to you
And you’ll hold her
And tell her all the things you never told her

Your love has shown me things I never thought I would see
I didn’t know
It could be done so easily
Now I know (Now I know)
You’re where it is for me

Sometime in the evening
You’re sitting there by the fireside
And she’ll touch you
And you’ll realize how much you never knew before

How much you couldn’t see
You didn’t know (You didn’t know)
It could be done so easily
Now you know (Now you know)
She’s all a girl could be

Now in her childlike eyes
You see the beauty there
You know it was always there
You need no longer wear a disguise

Sometime in the morning
You’ll just reach out, and she will be there (She will be there)
Close as the summer air

Sometime in the morning
(She will be there) She will be there
Sometime in the morning
(She will be there) She will be there

“Thank you, boys.”

“Hey Girl” Lyrics

Hey, girl, I want you to know
I’m goin’ to miss you so much if you go (Bye bye, baby)
Hey, girl, I’ll tell you no lie
Somethin’ deep inside of me’s goin’ to die (Bye bye, baby)
If you say so long (Bye bye, baby)
If this is goodbye (Bye bye, baby)

Hey, girl, this can’t be true
How am I supposed to exist without you? (Bye bye, baby)
Hey, girl, now don’t put me on
What’s goin’ to happen to me when you’re gone? (Bye bye, baby)
How will I live? (Bye bye, baby)
How can I go on? (Bye bye, baby)
How can I go on?
Hey, girl

[break]

Hey, girl, now sit yourself down
I’m not ashamed to get down on the ground (Bye bye, baby)
And beg you to stay (Bye bye, baby)
Don’t go away (Bye bye, baby)
Ah, don’t go away
Hey, hey, girl
Ah, don’t go away
Hey, hey, hey, girl
Ah, don’t go away
Hey, hey, oh
Hey, girl, hey, girl, hey, girl

“Up On The Roof” Lyrics

When this old world starts getting me down
And people are just too much for me to face
I climb way up to the top of the stairs
And all my cares just drift right into space

On the roof, it’s peaceful as can be
And there, the world below can’t bother me

Let me tell you now, when I come home feeling tired and beat
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet (Up on the roof)
I get away from the hustlin’ crowd
And all that rat race noise down in the street (Up on the roof)

On the roof, the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so
Let’s go up on the roof

[break]

At night, the stars put on a show for free
And darling, you can share it all with me

I keep a-tellin’ you right smack dab in the middle of town
I found a paradise that’s trouble-proof (Up on the roof)
And if this world starts gettin’ you down
There’s room enough for two up on the roof (Up on the roof)
Up on the roof (Up on the roof)
Yeah, up on the roof, ah, baby, yeah (Up on the roof)
Up on the roof (Up on the roof)
Up on the roof (Up on the roof)
Up on the roof (Up on the roof)
Up on the roof (Up on the roof)
Up on the roof (Up on the roof)

“Take Good Care of My Baby” Lyrics

My tears have fallen ’cause you’ve taken her away
Though it really hurts me so
There’s somethin’ that I’ve gotta say

Take good care of my baby
Please don’t ever make her blue
Just tell her that you love her
Make sure you’re thinking of her
In everything you say and do

Ah, take good care of my baby
Now don’t you ever make her cry
Just let your love surround her
Paint a rainbow all around her
Don’t let her see a cloudy sky

Once upon a time
That little girl was mine
If I’d been true
I know she’d never be with you

So take good care of my baby
Be just as kind as you can be
And if you should discover
That you don’t really love her
Just send my baby back home to me

Oh, take good care of my baby
Be just as kind as you can be
And if you should discover
That you don’t really love her
Just send my baby back home to me

Ah, take good care of my baby
Ah, take good care of my baby
Oh, take good care of my baby
Oh, take good care of my baby
Whoa, take good care

“Will You Love Me Tomorrow” Lyrics

Tonight, you’re mine completely
You give your love so sweetly
Tonight, the light of love is in your eyes
But will you love me tomorrow?

Is this a lasting treasure
Or just a moment’s pleasure?
Can I believe the magic of your sighs?
Will you still love me tomorrow?

Tonight, with words unspoken
You say that I’m the only one
But will my heart be broken
When the night meets the morning sun? (When the night meets the morning sun?)

I like to know that your love
Is love I can be sure of
So tell me now, and I won’t ask again
Will you still love me tomorrow?

[break]

So tell me now, and I won’t ask again
Will you still love me tomorrow?
Will you still love me tomorrow?
Will you still love me tomorrow?
Will you still love me tomorrow?

“Sweet Seasons” Lyrics

“Play it from the top.”

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose
Sometimes the blues get a hold on you
And just when you thought you had made it
All around the block, people will talk (Oh, people will talk)
I wanna give it all that I got
And I just don’t want
I don’t want to waste it

Talkin’ ’bout sweet seasons on my mind
Sure does appeal to me
You know you can get there easily
Just like a sailboat sailin’ on the sea

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose
Most times, you choose between the two
Oh, wonderin’ (Wonderin’) if you have made it

But I’ll have some kids and make my plans
I’ll watch the seasons runnin’ away
And I’ll build me a life in the open
A life in the country

Talkin’ ’bout sweet seasons on my mind
Sure does appeal to me
You know you can get there easily
Just like a sailboat sailin’ on the sea

[break]

Talkin’ ’bout sweet seasons on my mind
Sure does appeal to me
You know you can get there easily
Just like a sailboat sailin’ on the sea

Talkin’ ’bout sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet seasons
Talkin’ ’bout sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet seasons
Talkin’ ’bout sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet seasons

“Crying In The Rain” Lyrics

I’ll never let you see
The way my broken heart is hurting me
I’ve got my pride, and I know how to hide
All my sorrow and pain
I’ll do my cryin’ in the rain

If I wait for cloudy skies
You won’t know the rain from the tears in my eyes
You’ll never know that I still love you so
Though the heartaches remain
I’ll do my cryin’ in the rain

Raindrops fallin’ from heaven
Could never wash away my misery
But since we’re not together
I’ll look for stormy weather
To hide these tears I hope you’ll never see

Someday, when my cryin’ is done
I’m gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
I may be a fool, but ’til then, darlin’, you’ll
Never see me complain
I’ll do my cryin’ in the rain

[break]

Raindrops fallin’ from heaven
Could never wash away my misery
But since we’re not together
I’ll look for stormy weather
To hide these tears I hope you’ll never see

Someday, when my cryin’ is done
I’m gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
I may be a fool, but ’til then, darlin’, you’ll
Never see me complain
I’ll do my cryin’ in the rain
I’ll do my cryin’ in the rain
I’ll do my cryin’ in the rain


“Go Away Little Girl” Lyrics

Go away, little girl
Go away, little girl
I’m not supposed to be alone with you

I know that your lips are sweet
But our lips must never meet
I belong to someone else
And I must be true

Go away, little girl
Go away, little girl
It’s hurting me more each minute that you delay

When you are near me like this
You’re much too hard to resist
So go away, little girl
Before I beg you to stay

[break]

When you are near me like this
You’re much too hard to resist
So please, go away, little girl
Call it a day, little girl
Ah, please, go away, little girl
Before I beg you to stay
Ah, go away
Please, go away
Oh, go away
Please, go away
Please, go away
Little girl
Little girl
Mm
Please, go away
Please, go away

“Just Once In My Life” Lyrics

There’s a lot of things I want
A lot of things that I’d like to be
But girl, I don’t foresee
A rags to riches story for me

There’s just one little dream
I’ve got to make come true
There’s just one round I’ve got to win
I can’t be a loser with you

And baby, baby
Just once in my life
Let me get what I want
Girl, don’t let me down
Just once in my life
Let me hold on to
This good thing I’ve found
Don’t let me down

Baby, say that you’ll be staying
’Cause I couldn’t face the day
If you want to keep by my side
And if you run away, then I’d be left without any pride

I’ve given up on schemes
’Cause every one fell through
I’ve given up so many things
Don’t ask me to give up on you

And baby, baby
Just once in my life
Let me get what I want
Girl, don’t let me down
Just once in my life
Let me hold on to
This good thing I’ve found
Don’t let me down

Baby, say that you’ll be staying, yeah
Hoo, hoo
That old pot of gold ain’t so easy to find
But if you stand by me
Girl, I’ll keep peace of mind

I can’t give you the world
But I will work hard for you, girl
Yes, I work hard all my life
If you won’t leave me
Please, don’t leave me
Just do this for me, baby

Once in my life
Let me get what I want
Girl, don’t let me down
Just once in my life
Let me hold on to
This good thing I’ve found
Don’t let me down

Baby, say that you’ll be staying
Hoo, hoo
Hoo, hoo
Whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa


“It Might As Well Rain Until September” Lyrics

What shall I write?
What can I say?
How can I tell you how much I miss you?

The weather here has been as nice as it can be
Although it doesn’t really matter much to me
For all the fun I’ll have while you’re so far away
Well, it might as well rain until September

I don’t need sunny skies for things I have to do
’Cause I stay home the whole day long and think of you
As far as I’m concerned, each day’s a rainy day
So it might as well rain until September

My friends look forward to their picnics on the beach
Yes, everybody loves the summertime
But you know, darlin’, while your arms are out of reach
The summer isn’t any friend of mine

It doesn’t matter whether skies are gray or blue
It’s rainin’ in my heart ’cause I can’t be with you
I’m only livin’ for the day I’m home to stay
So it might as well rain until September
September
September
Oh, it might as well rain until September
Ooh-ooh, September
Ooh-ooh, September
Ooh-ooh

“Point of No Return” Lyrics

You know that once upon a time
I didn’t need you so
It would’ve been so easy then
For me to turn and go

But now, there’s no leaving you
I know that for a fact
I’m at the point of no return
And for me, there’ll be no turnin’ back

I told myself you’d always be
A habit I could break
But now a day without your kiss
Would be so hard to take

Just can’t get off a train
That’s movin’ down the track
I’m at the point of no return
And for me, there’ll be no turnin’ back

Once I could have said goodbye
But that was at the start
Now I think I’d rather die
Than be the one to say we’ll part

Maybe you will break my heart
Oh, maybe you’ll be true
No matter what the future brings
I’ve got to see it through

Oh, maybe your love for me
Is nothin’ but an act
I’m at the point of no return
And for me, there’ll be no turnin’ back
Yeah, for me, there’ll be no turnin’ back

“Take it.”
[break]

Whoa, maybe your love for me
Is nothin’ but an act
I’m at the point of no return
And for me, there’ll be no turnin’ back
Yeah, for me, there’ll be no turnin’ back
Whoa, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

[break]

Oh, at the point of no return
Now the point of no return
And for me, there’ll be no turnin’ back
No, for me, there’ll be no turnin’ back

[scat]
Whoa, just can’t get off that train
It’s movin’ down the track
Take the last train
Take the last train
Yeah, ah

“I Feel the Earth Move” Lyrics

I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumblin’ down
I feel my heart start to tremblin’ whenever you’re around

Ooh, baby, when I see your face
Mellow as the month of May
Ooh, darlin’, I can’t stand it
When you look at me that way

I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumblin’ down
I feel my heart start to tremblin’ whenever you’re around

[break]

Oh, darlin’ when you’re near me
And you tenderly call my name
I know that my emotions
Are somethin’ that I just can’t take
I just got to have you, babe

I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumblin’ down, tumblin’ down
I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumblin’ down, tumblin’, tumblin’ down
I feel the earth move under my feet
I just lose control
It’s movin’
I feel the earth move under my feet
Ah, to my very soul
I get a-hot and cold all over, all over, all over, all over, all over, all over, all over
I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the earth move under my feet

“Sometime In The Morning (reprise)” Lyrics

Sometime in the morning
A simple thought may occur to you
And you’ll hold her
And tell her all the things you never told her

Your love has shown me things I never thought I would see
I didn’t know
It could be done so easily
Now I know (Now I know)
You’re where it is for me

Sometime in the evening
You’re sitting there by the fireside
And she’ll touch you
And you’ll realize how much you never knew before

How much you couldn’t see
You didn’t know (You didn’t know)
It could be done so easily
Now you know (Now you know)
She’s all a girl could be

Now in her childlike eyes
You see the beauty there
You know it was always there
You need no longer wear a disguise

Sometime in the morning
You’ll just reach out, and she will be there (She will be there)
Close as the summer air

Sometime in the morning
(She will be there) She will be there
Sometime in the morning
(She will be there) She will be there
