“Last Train to Clarksville” Lyrics

Take the last train to Clarksville
And I’ll meet you at the station
You can be here by four-thirty
’Cause I’ve made your reservation
Don’t be slow
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no

’Cause I’m leaving in the morning
And I must see you again
We’ll have one more night together (Train)
’Til the morning brings my train
And I must go
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no

And I don’t know if I’m ever coming home

Take the last train to Clarksville (Train)
I’ll be waiting at the station (Train)
We’ll have time for coffee-flavored kisses
And a bit of conversation, oh
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no

Di-di di-di di-di di-di
Di-di di-di di-di di-di
Di-di di-di di-di di-di di

Di-di di-di di-di di-di
Di-di di-di di-di di-di
Di-di di-di di-di di-di di

Take the last train to Clarksville
Now I must hang up the phone
I can’t hear you in this
Noisy railroad station all alone
I’m feelin’ low
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no

And I don’t know if I’m ever coming home
Oh

(Ah)

Take the last train to Clarksville
And I’ll meet you at the station
You can be here by four-thirty (Train)
’Cause I’ve made your reservation
Don’t be slow
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no

And I don’t know if I’m ever coming home

Take the last train to Clarksville (Train)
Take the last train to Clarksville (Train)
Take the last train to Clarksville (Train)
Take the last train to Clarksville (Train)
Take the last train to Clarksville (Train)

“Porpoise Song (Theme from “Head”)” Lyrics

My, my, the clock in the sky is pounding away
There’s so much to say
A face, a voice, an overdub has no choice
An image cannot rejoice

Wanting to be
To hear and to see
Crying to the sky

But the porpoise is laughing, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

Clicks, clacks, riding the backs of giraffes for laughs
Is alright for a while
The ego sings of castles and kings and things
That go with a life of style

Wanting to feel
To know what is real
Living is a, is a lie

But the porpoise is waiting, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

“Tear Drop City” Lyrics

’Bout as low as I’ve felt in a long time
And I know that I did her wrong at the wrong time
It’s plain to see
She’s down on me
And I know she’ll feel that way for a long time

I was high on top, but I didn’t know it
Tell me why did I have to go and blow it?
I used my lines
Too many times
And now I’ve got a badly hurt heart to show it

Took me too long to discover
How much I really love her
How’d I ever end up in this bag?
What a drag

There she goes, lookin’ for a pretty clover
No one knows what it’s like ’til it’s over
Without a doubt
I just found out
And I suppose I never did get to know her
Tear Drop City
Tear Drop City

Took me too long to discover
How much I really love her
How’d I ever end up in this bag?
What a drag

’Bout as low as I’ve felt in a long time
I’m ’bout as low as I’ve felt in a long time
I’m ’bout as low as I’ve felt in a long time
I’m ’bout as low as I’ve felt in a long time

“Mary, Mary” Lyrics

Mary, Mary, where you goin’ to?
Mary, Mary, can I go too?
This one thing I will vow ya
I’d rather die than to live without ya
Mary, Mary, where you goin’ to?

Mary, Mary, tell me truly
What did I do to make you leave me?
Whatever it was, I didn’t mean to
You know I never would try and hurt ya
Mary, Mary, where you goin’ to?

What more Mary can I do
To prove that my love is truly yours?
I’ve done more now than a clear-thinkin’ man would do

Mary, Mary, it’s not over
Where you go, I will follow
’Til I win your love again
And walk beside you, but until then
Mary, Mary, where you goin’ to?

Mary, Mary, where you goin’ to?
Mary, where you goin’ to?
Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, where you goin’ to?
Oh, Mary, where you goin’ to, Mary, Mary
Mary, where you goin’ to?

“Saturday’s Child” Lyrics

Monday had a sad child
Always feelin’ low down
Tuesday had a dream child
She’s always on the go, so
I’m in love with Saturday’s child

Every time you take her out at night (She drives me wild)
You wanna kiss and hold her way up tight (Gonna spend my time)
You can tell the future’s lookin’ bright (Makin’ sure that Saturday’s child is mine)

If you love a Wednesday
You’ll live your life apart now
And if you love a Thursday
She’s gonna break your heart, so
I’m in love with Saturday’s child

Every time you hold her close you’ll see (She drives me wild)
You can feel the thrill that’s gonna be (Gonna spend my time)
Now the future has a guarantee (Makin’ sure that Saturday’s child is mine)

Seven days of the week made to choose from
But only one is right for me
I know that Saturday’s got what it takes, babe
I can tell by the way she looks at me
Ah

[break]

Friday likes the good life
She’ll take you for a ride, now
And Sunday makes a good wife
She wants to be your bride, so
I’m in love with Saturday’s child

Every time you take her out at night (She drives me wild)
You wanna kiss and hold her way up tight (Gonna spend my time)
You can tell the future’s lookin’ bright (Makin’ sure that Saturday’s child is mine, Saturday’s child)

Every time you take her out at night (She drives me wild)
You wanna kiss and hold her way up tight (Gonna spend my time)
You can tell the future’s lookin’ bright (Makin’ sure that Saturday’s child is mine, Saturday’s child)

“I’ll Be True to You” Lyrics

I’ll be true to you, yes, I will
I’ll be true to you, yes, I will
I won’t look twice when the other girls go by
I’ll be true to you, yes, I will

Somehow this time, it’s all so clear to me
The way to go is easy to see
My heart is sure you’re the girl I’m waiting for
And I’ll be true to you, yes, I will
Yes, I will

I used to be the kind
Who said that every girl’s the same
And love was just a game for having fun
But when I looked at you
I knew that I was wrong
And that I really could belong to only one

I’ll be true to you, yes, I will
Every dream that you have, I’ll fulfill
I never promised this to anyone before
But I’ll be true to you, yes, I will

I’ll be true to you, yes, I will
Every dream that you have, I’ll fulfill
I never promised this to anyone before
But I’ll be true to you, yes, I will
Yes, I will
Yes, I will

“Your Auntie Grizelda” Lyrics

She knows her mind alright, your Auntie Grizelda
She says she knows my kind, she might may be so
Oh yeah, she’s raised you right, your Auntie Grizelda
You only know the things she wants you to know

I know she’s havin’ a fit
She doesn’t like me a bit
No bird of grace ever lit on Auntie Grizelda

You can’t begrudge her style, your Auntie Grizelda
She couldn’t budge a smile and do it for free
So righteous making fudge, your Auntie Grizelda
So proper judging others over her tea

You look just like her you do
I know by lookin’ at you
That you’ve been listening to your Auntie Grizelda

[break, ad lib]

Oh no, don’t look at me like Auntie Grizelda
It takes much more to be someone of your own
You’ve got to make it free from Auntie Grizelda
Or just like her, you’ll have to make it alone

I know she’s havin’ a fit
She doesn’t like me a bit
No bird of grace ever lit on Auntie Grizelda

Auntie Grizelda, Auntie Grizelda
Auntie Grizelda, Auntie Grizelda
Grizzle da, grizzle da da, da da da…

“Look Out (Here Comes Tomorrow)” Lyrics

Look out, here comes tomorrow
That’s when I’ll have to choose
How I wish I could borrow
Someone else’s shoes

Mary, oh, what a sweet girl
Lips like strawberry pie
Sandra, long hair and beat girl
Can’t make up my mind

I see all kinds of sorrow
Wish I only loved one
Look out, here comes tomorrow
Oh, how I wish tomorrow would never come

Told them both that I loved them
Said it, and it was true
But I can’t have both of them
Don’t know what to do

And I see all kinds of sorrow
Wish I only loved one
Look out, here comes tomorrow
Oh, how I wish tomorrow would never come

[break]
Mary, I love you
Sandra, I love you

Well, I see all kinds of sorrow
Wish I only loved one
Look out, here comes tomorrow
Oh, how I wish tomorrow would never come, ooh

I love you
Darling
I love you

“I Can’t Get Her Off My Mind” Lyrics

I’ve been standing on the corner all day
Tryin’ to think of little things to say
’Cause she walks by every day about this time
And I don’t think I’ll ever get her off of my mind

Well, I only met her ’bout a week ago
But the way she smiles lets me know
That she could see that maybe we were two of a kind
And I don’t think I’ll ever get her off of my mind

Oh, she’s so pretty
I couldn’t believe she’d ever look my way
But the way I’m feeling
I’m going to be stealing
That little girl’s heart today

Well, I’m so happy I could almost fly
And I guess you know the reason why
I’m walkin’ down the street
With her little hand in mine
And I don’t think I’ll ever get her off of my mind

Oh, she’s so pretty
I couldn’t believe she’d ever look my way
But the way I’m feeling
I’m going to be stealing
That little girl’s heart today

Well, I’m so happy I could almost fly
And I guess you know the reason why
I’m walkin’ down the street
With her little hand in mine
And I don’t think I’ll ever get her off of my mind
And I don’t think I’ll ever get her off of my mind

“Sometime in the Morning” Lyrics

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

Your love has shown me things I never thought I could see
I didn’t know (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’ll see the beauty there
You’ll know it was always there
And you need no longer wear a disguise

Sometime in the morning
You’ll just reach out, and 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
