“She” Lyrics

(She) She told me that she loved me
And like a fool, I believed her from the start
(She) She said she’d never hurt me
But then she turned around and broke my heart

(Ohh) Why am I standing here
Missing her and wishing she were here?
(Hey!) She only did me wrong
(Hey!) I’m better off alone

(She) She devoured all my sweet love
Took all I had, and then she fed me dirt
(She) She laughed when I was cryin’
It was such a joke to see the way it hurt

(Ohh) Why am I standing here
Missing her and wishing she were here?
(Hey!) She only did me wrong
(Hey!) I’m better off alone

And now I know just why she
Keeps me hangin’ ’round (Hangin’ ’round)
She needs someone to walk on
So her feet don’t touch the ground (Don’t touch the ground)
But I love her (Love her)
I need her (Need her)
I want her (Want her)
Yeah! (Yeah!)
Yeah! (Yeah!)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
She, ah

[break]

(Ohh) Why am I standing here
Missing her and wishing she were here?
(Hey!) She only did me wrong now
(Hey!) I’m better off alone

(She) Why am I missing her?
(She) I should be kissing her
(She) Why am I missing her?
(She) I should be kissing her

“When Love Comes Knockin’ (At Your Door)” Lyrics

When love comes knocking at your door
Just open up and let him in
It’s gonna be a magic carpet ride
So little girl now don’t you run and hide

I know that you’ve been hurt before
But don’t you be afraid no more
Throw off the chains that bind and leave the past behind
When love comes knocking at your door

I know (When love comes knocking at your door)
That you’re afraid of loving me (Just open up and let him in)
But don’t you fight it, and you’ll see (It’s gonna be a magic carpet ride)
That loving me will make you high (So little girl now don’t you run and hide)

’Cause baby, I (You’ll see a rainbow every day)
I know that you’ve been hurt before (The sun will shine in every way)
But don’t you be afraid no more (Throw off the chains that bind and leave the past behind)
No need to worry any more
When love comes knocking at your door
At your door
At your door
At your door

“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?

“Hold On Girl” Lyrics

I know about the guy who treated you so bad
He took your love and then just walked away
I know that you have got a reason to be sad
But help is on its way

(Hold on girl) Be a little bit stronger
(Hold on girl) Wait a little bit longer
(Hold on girl) Help is on its way

I know you feel as though your world is at an end
But you don’t have to live with yesterday
I promise you the sun is gonna shine again
And help is on its way

(Hold on girl) Now that we are together
(Hold on girl) Things are gonna be better
(Hold on girl) Help is on its way

[break]

I promise you the sun is gonna shine again
And help is on its way

(Hold on girl) Be a little bit stronger
(Hold on girl) Wait a little bit longer
(Hold on girl) Help is on its way

“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…

“(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone” Lyrics

I, I, I, I, I’m not your steppin’ stone
I, I, I, I, I’m not your steppin’ stone

You’re tryin’ to make your mark in society
You’re usin’ all the tricks that you used on me
You’re readin’ all them high-fashion magazines
The clothes you’re wearin’, girl, are causin’ public scenes

I said I, I, I, I, I’m not your steppin’ stone
I, I, I, I, I’m not your steppin’ stone (No!)
Not your steppin’ stone
Not your steppin’ stone

I, I, I, I, I’m not your steppin’ stone (No!)

When I first met you, girl, you didn’t have no shoes
But now you’re walkin’ ’round like you’re front page news
You’ve been awful careful ’bout the friends you choose
But you won’t find my name in your book of Who’s Who

I said I, I, I, I, I’m not your steppin’ stone (No, girl, not me!)
I, I, I, I, I’m not your steppin’ stone (No!)
Not your steppin’ stone
I’m not your steppin’ stone

Not your steppin’ stone
Not your steppin’ stone
Not your steppin’ stone
Not your steppin’ stone
No, I, girl, I’m not your steppin’ stone
Not your steppin’ stone
Not your steppin’ stone
Not your steppin’ stone
Not your steppin’ stone

“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

“The Kind of Girl I Could Love” Lyrics

Girl, you look mighty good to me
And I know that you’ve got to be
The kind of girl I could love

You got the sweetest pair of eyes
And your kiss would be paradise
You’re the kind of girl I could love

You do something to my soul
That no one’s ever done
If you’re lookin’ for true love
Then let me be the one

Oh, girl, deep in my soul, I’m sure
That my heart has no doubt that you’re
The kind of girl I could love

[break]

Hey, girl, you look mighty good to me
And I know that you’ve got to be
The kind of girl I could love
The kind of girl I could love
The kind of girl I could love
The kind of girl I could love

“The Day We Fall in Love” Lyrics

There’ll be birds singing everywhere
And the wind will be blowing through your hair
I’ll look into your eyes
And wait for the prize
Your lips kissing mine
With a love that is real
And you’ll look so young and fair, oh

On the day we fall in love
You and me
On the day we’ll fall in love
You’ll see

There’ll be rainbows reaching across the sky
And we’ll both be so happy, we’ll cry
We’ll walk hand-in-hand
In snow or in sand
Whether roses are blooming
Or snowmen stand by
Time will stop for you and I

On the day we fall in love
It will be on the day we fall in love
You’ll see

And if the lines that I say fall apart
It’s because I won’t know where to start
But you’ll understand when I say them to you
’Cause they’ll come straight from my heart

On the day we fall in love
You and me
On the day we fall in love
You’ll see
You’ll see
You’ll see

“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

“Laugh” Lyrics

Every face that I see is all wrapped up in frowns
And unfortunately, it kind of gets me down

Laugh
’Cause the music is funny
Yeah, the bass sounds off-beat
Ain’t that neat?

Laugh (Ho, ha-ha ha)
When you lose all your money (Ho, ha-ha ha)
Or you can’t find your shoes (Ho, ha-ha ha)
To cover your feet (Ho, ha-ha ha)

(Da-da, da-da, da-da, da-da, da-da, da-da, da-da, da-da)
It’s not so hard to see exactly what I’m after
(Da-da, da-da, da-da, da-da, da-da, da-da)
Sometimes a tear should fall, but I require giggles and chuckles (Ho ho ho)

Laugh (Ho, ha-ha ha)
When you’re keepin’ a secret (Ho, ha-ha ha)
And it seems to be known (Ho, ha-ha ha)
By the rest of the world (Ho, ha-ha ha)

Laugh (Ho, ha-ha ha)
When you go to a party (Ho, ha-ha ha)
And you can’t tell the boys (Ho, ha-ha ha)
From the girls (Ho, ha-ha ha)

(Da-da, da-da, da-da, da-da, da-da, da-da, da-da, da-da)
Every face that I see is all wrapped up in frowns
(Da-da, da-da, da-da, da-da, da-da, da-da)
And unfortunately, it kind of gets me down, yeah, yeah, yeah

Laugh (Ho, ha-ha ha)
At the things that are wrong (Ho, ha-ha ha)
If you think it’s this song (Yeah, ha-ha ha)
Then laugh (Ho, ha-ha ha)
Then laugh (Ho, ha-ha ha)
Then laugh (Ho, ha-ha ha)

“I’m a Believer” Lyrics

I thought love was only true in fairy tales
Meant for someone else but not for me
Love was out to get me (Di di-di, di-di)
That’s the way it seemed (Di di-di, di-di)
Disappointment haunted all my dreams

Then I saw her face
Now I’m a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I’m in love
I’m a believer
I couldn’t leave her if I tried

I thought love was more or less a givin’ thing
Seems the more I gave, the less I got
What’s the use in tryin’? (Di di-di, di-di)
All you get is pain (Di di-di, di-di)
When I needed sunshine, I got rain

Then I saw her face
Now I’m a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I’m in love
I’m a believer
I couldn’t leave her if I tried, ah

[break]

Oh, love was out to get me
Now, that’s the way it seemed
Disappointment haunted all my dreams

I’m a believer
I couldn’t leave her if I tried

Yes, I saw her face
Now I’m a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
Said I’m a believer, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (I’m a believer)
Said I’m a believer, yeah (I’m a believer)
Said I’m a believer, yeah

“Don’t Listen To Linda (prev. unissued version)” Lyrics

Don’t listen to Linda
She’s said all those things before
She’s just a pretender
And though you couldn’t love her more
She’ll lead you on, but then one day
She’ll say you have to part
Don’t listen to Linda
She’ll only break your heart

Don’t listen to Linda
If you want some good advice
Just try to remember
She did it once, she’ll do it twice
There’s more to her little games
Than your eyes can see
Don’t listen to Linda
Or you’ll end up like me

You’ll never understand her
All the presents you could hand her
Would never be enough, oh no
So don’t underestimate her
’Cause sooner or later
The going’s gonna start to get rough

Don’t listen to Linda
Don’t believe the things you hear
You’re her top contender
For the Loser of the Year
I’ve said everything I can
To try and make you see
Don’t listen to Linda
Or you’ll end up like me

[break]

Don’t listen to Linda
She’s said all those things before
She’s just a pretender
And though you couldn’t love her more
She’ll lead you on, but then one day
She’ll say you have to part
Don’t listen to Linda
She’ll only break your heart

“I’ll Spend My Life with You (alt. version)” Lyrics

People come and people go
Movin’ fast and movin’ slow
I’m in a crowd, and yet I’m all alone
The road is long, the road is rough
I do believe I’ve had enough
I’m gonna turn around and head for home

And I hope you’re there
And you still care
And if you do
I’ll spend my life with you

I’ve had all the time I need
To rearrange my mind and lead
The life I thought I wanted yesterday
I played a game that couldn’t last
And now some memories from my past
Have turned my thoughts around a different way

And girl, I find
You’re still on my mind
And if you want me to
I’ll spend my life with you

And girl, I find
You’re still on my mind

“I Don’t Think You Know Me (prev. unissued mix)” Lyrics

If you think I want the life you choose to live
I don’t think I want the love you’ve got to give
If you think my goals could be so trivial and small
Then I don’t think you know me at all

Born between the covers of your fashion books
You think you can make it, girl, on just your looks
But you could never bring me up, between us stands a wall
No, I don’t think you know me at all

[break]

Believing in the promise painted in your smile
I chased what I was running from, girl, all the while
I’ve known you a hundred times in memories I recall
But I don’t think you know me at all
No, I don’t think you know me at all

“Look Out (Here Comes Tomorrow) (prev. unissued long mix)” 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]
Peter: Ladies and gentlemen, you are listening to the instrumental… Thank you, we hope you enjoyed it. And now, back to the song.

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

[break]
Peter: Ladies and gentlemen, this part of our record is here because if it weren’t, the record would be seventeen seconds too short, and we would have to do an interview at the end.

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

Peter: Hi, this is me again, and this part is what we call the fade where the record gets softer and softer, and the disc jockey usually comes in and starts talking over it.
