“Good Morning Good Morning” Lyrics

Nothing to do to save his life, call his wife in
Nothing to say but what a day, how’s your boy been?
Nothing to do, it’s up to you
I got nothing to say, but it’s okay

Goin’ to work, don’t wanna go, feelin’ low down
Headin’ for home, you start to roam, now you’re in town

Everybody knows there’s nothin’ doin’
Everything is closed, it’s like a ruin
Everyone you see is half asleep
You’re on your own, you’re in the street

After a while, you start to smile, now you feel cool
Then you decide to take a walk by the old school
Nothin’ has changed, it’s still the same
I got nothing to say, but it’s okay

[break]

People runnin’ ’round, it’s five o’clock
Everywhere in town, it’s gettin’ dark
Everyone you see is full of life
It’s time for tea and Meet the Wife

Somebody needs to know the time, glad that I’m here
Watchin’ the skirts, you start to flirt, now you’re in gear
Go to a show, I hope she goes
I’ve got nothing to say, but it’s okay

Good morning
Good morning
Good morning

“An Old Fashioned Love Song” Lyrics

Ooh ooh ooh, I love you

Just an old fashioned love song playin’ on the radio
And wrapped around the music
Is the sound of someone promising they’ll never go

You swear you’ve heard it before
As it slowly rambles on and on and
No need in bringin’ ’em back
’Cause they’re never really gone

Just an old fashioned love song
One I’m sure they wrote for you and me
Just an old fashioned love song
Comin’ down in three-part harmony

To weave our dreams upon and listen to each evening when the lights are low
To underscore our love affair
With tenderness and feeling that we’ve come to know

You swear you’ve heard it before
As it slowly rambles on and on
And no need in bringin’ ’em back
’Cause they’re never really gone

Just an old fashioned love song
One I’m sure they wrote for you and me
Just an old fashioned love song
Comin’ down in three-part harmony

[scat]

Just an old song
Comin’ down in three-part harmony
Just an old song
One I’m sure they wrote for you and me

Just an old fashioned love song
One I’m sure they wrote for you and me
Just an old fashioned love song
Comin’ down in three-part harmony
One I’m sure they wrote for you and me
Comin’ down in three-part harmony

“Diary” Lyrics

I found her diary underneath the tree
And started reading about me
The words she’d written took me by surprise
You’d never read them in her eyes

Wouldn’t you know it?
She wouldn’t show it

When she confronted with the writing there
Simply pretended not to care
I passed it off as just in keeping with
Her total disconcertedness

Wouldn’t you know it?
She wouldn’t show it
Wouldn’t you know it?
She wouldn’t show it

And as I go through my life
I will give to her, my wife
All sweet things I can find

I found her diary underneath the tree
And started reading about me
The words began to stick and tears flow
Her meaning now is clear to see

And though she tried to hide
The love that she denied
The love she’d waited for
Was someone else, not me

(Wouldn’t you know it?) Not me
(She wouldn’t show it)
(Wouldn’t you know it?)
(She wouldn’t show it) Somebody else, not me
(Wouldn’t you know it?)
(She wouldn’t show it)

And as I go through my life
I wish for her, his wife
All the sweet things she can find
All the sweet things they can find

I found her diary underneath a tree
Wouldn’t you know it?

“Many Years” Lyrics

When I called you tonight
Said it’s such a lovely evening
Won’t you let me drop by?
Take you for a stroll beneath the bright moonlight
Hand in hand, you and me

From the moment we met
I was taken by your beauty
Now your soft silhouette
Your melodious voice, your smile make my knees go weak

There’s a gentle breeze a-blowing
And I find myself hoping
There’ll be many years for showing
I love you

City blocks of conversation
Whispered dreams, concealed elation
Crossing bridges, wishing wishes, ooh

On the old cobblestones
Unaware of people passing
It is so à propos
Every story’s an endearing cameo
Shown to me beneath the trees

Now there’s so much to say
’Cause I want to get to know you
Winding down River Way
As we laugh and share, I feel my heart give way to you

There’s a gentle breeze a-blowing
And I find myself hoping
There’ll be many years for showing
I love you

City blocks of conversation
Whispered dreams, concealed elation
Crossing bridges, wishing wishes, ooh

There’s a gentle breeze a-blowing
And I find myself hoping
There’ll be many years for showing
I love you

There’s a gentle breeze a-blowing
And I find myself hoping
There’ll be many years for showing
I love you

“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
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
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

[break]

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

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

“Quiet Desperation” Lyrics

Had a friend, a good old boy, taught me all I need to know
’Bout livin’ life on this big spinnin’ wheel
His advice was simple stuff
Devil’s here to make it tough
Lord’s around to see you pay your bills

Had a girl, she promised me we’d love each other faithfully
Took eternal vows, as lovers do
Then one day, she changed her mind
Left me on the line to dry
Tellin’ me what I already knew

Most men lead lives of quiet desperation
Try to make ends meet and keep the love alive
Fight against all odds until the final curtain
Go away and find some place to cry

Had a friend, we had a deal, we couldn’t lose was its appeal
I gave him all I had to see it fly
Then one day, I got a call
Seems as though we’d lost it all
He was sorry, I just had to smile

Most men lead lives of quiet desperation
Try to make ends meet and keep the love alive
Fight against all odds until the final curtain
Go away and find some place to cry

I wonder why I keep tryin’
Must be somethin’ in my genes
Any minute now, I’ll see the light
Realize what it means

Most men lead lives of quiet desperation
Try to make ends meet and keep the love alive
Fight against all odds until the final curtain
Go away and find some place to cry
Go away and find some place to cry
Go away and find some place to die

“Randy Scouse Git” Lyrics

She’s a wonderful lady, and she’s mine, all mine
And there doesn’t seem a way that she won’t come and lose my mind
It’s too easy hummin’ songs to a girl in yellow dress
Been a long time since the party, and the room is in a mess

The four kings of E.M.I. are sitting stately on the floor
There are birds out on the sidewalk and a valet at the door
He reminds me of a penguin with few and plastered hair
There’s talcum powder on the letter, and the birthday boy is there

Why don’t you cut your hair?
Why don’t you live up there?
Why don’t you do what I do
See what I feel when I care?

Now they’ve darkened all the windows, and the seats are naugahyde
I’ve been waiting for an hour, I can’t find a place to hide
The being known as Wonder Girl is speaking, I believe
It’s not easy tryin’ to tell her that I shortly have to leave, have to leave
Shortly have to leave
Shortly have to leave

Why don’t you be like me?
Why don’t you stop and see?
Why don’t you hate who I hate
Kill who I kill to be free?

Why don’t you cut your hair?
Why don’t you live up there?
Why don’t you do what I do
See what I feel when I care?

Why don’t you be like me?
Why don’t you stop and see?
Why don’t you hate who I hate
Kill who I kill to be free?

She’s a wonderful lady, and she’s mine, all mine
All mine

“Johnny B. Goode” Lyrics

Well, down in Louisiana, down in New Orleans
Back up in the woods among the evergreens
There’s a fine log cabin made of earth and wood
There’s a country boy named Johnny B. Goode
Who never ever learned to read or write so well
But he can play guitar just like a-ringing a bell

Go, go
Go, Johnny, go, go
Go, Johnny, go, go
Go, Johnny, go, go
Go, Johnny, go, go
Oh, Johnny, Johnny B. Goode

He’d carry his guitar in a gunny sack
Sit beneath the trees-a by the railroad track
Oh, the engineers would see him sittin’ in the shade
Strummin’ to the rhythm that the drivers made
People passin’ by would stop and say
My my, how that little country boy can play

Go, go
Go, Johnny, go, go, go
(Go, Johnny, go, go)
(Go, Johnny, go, go) Oh, Johnny, go, Johnny, go, Johnny, go, Johnny, go, Johnny, go
(Go, Johnny, go, go)
Oh, Johnny, Johnny B. Goode

Ooh ooh, go, Johnny, go
Ooh ooh, go, Johnny, go
Ooh ooh, go, Johnny, go
Ooh ooh, go, Johnny, go
Ooh ooh, go, Johnny, go
Ooh ooh

His mother said to Johnny, “You will be a man
You be the leader of a big old band
Whoa, many people comin’ from miles around
To hear you play that guitar when the sun goes down
Maybe your name is gonna in lights
Saying Johnny, Johnny, Johnny, Johnny B. Goode tonight”

Go, go
Ooh, go, Johnny, go, go
(Go, Johnny, go, go)
(Go, Johnny, go, go) Go, Johnny, go, Johnny, go, Johnny, go, Johnny, go, Johnny, go
(Go, Johnny, go, go)
Oh, Johnny (Johnny), Johnny B. Goode

Oh go, Johnny
Oh go, Johnny
Oh go, Johnny
Oh go, Johnny, go, Johnny, go
(Go, Johnny, go, go) Go, Johnny
(Go, Johnny, go, go) Oh, Johnny, Johnny B. Goode

“Do Not Ask For Love” Lyrics

Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

And is it so, once more, thou art returning?
Hast thou lost thy way as once before?
I warned thee more than many times, thus would it be (Warned thee, more than warned thee, how I warned thee, how I more than warned thee)
I shall not be thy refuge once more (Ooh, ah, not be thy, not be thy, once before)

Thou makest me free
Then soon thou makest demands on me
And I am not thy love
Thou workest in me slavery

But I shan’t hear thee as before
I prithee, do not ask for love once more (Do not, I prithee, do not)
(Do not, I prithee, do not)

So go thy way, and soon, I shall go likewise (I shall go and mine be low)
And if thy path be high then be mine low (Be high, low, if thy path be high)
Behold my footsteps in the sand but follow not (Behold my, ah, behold my, ah, behold my, ah, ah, follow not)
For soon they shall be covered with snow (Covered, snow, snow)

Thou makest me free
Then soon thou makest demands on me
And I am not thy love
Thou workest in me slavery, oh

But I shan’t hear any more
I prithee, do not ask for love once more (Do not, prithee, do not, prithee)
I prithee, do not ask for love once more

“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
That’s the way it seemed
Disappointment haunted all of my dreams

Then I saw her face
I’m a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I’m in love (Ooh, ooh)
I’m a believer
I couldn’t leave her if I tried
Honey, 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’? (Do, da, da)
All you get is pain (Do, da, da)
When I needed sunshine, I got rain

Then I saw her face
I’m a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I’m in love (Ooh, ooh)
I’m a believer
I couldn’t leave her if I tried
Honey, if I tried

[break]

Ah, love was out to get me (Do, da, da)
Now, that’s the way it seemed (Do, da, da)
Disappointment haunted all of my dreams

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

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

(I’m a believer) I’m a believer
(I’m a believer) Honey, if I tried
(I’m a believer) I’m a believer

“Remember” Lyrics

Long ago
Far away
Life was clear
Close your eyes

Remember is a place from long ago
Remember, filled with everything you know
Remember, when you’re sad and feelin’ down
Remember, turn around

Remember, life is just a memory
Remember, close your eyes and you can see
Remember, think of all that life can be
Remember

Dream, love is only in a dream
Remember
Remember, life is never as it seems
Dream

Dream, love is only in a dream
Remember
Remember, life is never as it seems
Dream, dream, dream

Long ago
Far away
Life was clear
Close your eyes

[break]
Lullaby
Lullaby
Do you remember?
Do you remember?

Remember
Remember
Remember

Remember, close your eyes and you can see
Think of all that life can be
Dream (Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah)
Dream, dream, dream, dream

Ah, ah, ah
Close your eyes and you can see
Dream, think of all that life can be
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh
Remember
Remember
Close your eyes and see
All that life can be
Dream
Remember
Remember
Ah, ah, ah
Remember
Ah-ah, ah-ah
