I can't believe that it's real
The way that you make me feel
A burning deep down inside
A love that I cannot hide

I know it's you and me babe
That makes the world go round
Ah keeping you in love with me baby
Laying all my troubles down

[Chorus:]
Here I am babe, come and take me
Here I am babe, wont ya come and take me
Take me by the hand, ooh show me
Here I am babe, oooooaaah

It always ends up this way
Me begging you every day
A love that I cannot have
You broke my heart in two halves

Ooh I know it's you and me babe
That makes the world go round
Ah keeping you in love with me baby
Laying all my troubles down

[Chorus 2x]


. . .



Tears from my eyes keep on falling
cause you are leaving, leaving with another
Things that we've done together
I'll always remember though you're with another, baby.

Tears from my eyes keep on falling
cause you are leaving, leaving with another
Things that we've done together
I'll always remember though you're with another, baby.

I've done everything one man can do, girl
Said every word one man can say
The thing that we had has gone astray, girl
I'm missing you from day to day.

Tears from my eyes keep on falling
cause you are leaving, leaving with another
Things that we've done together
I'll always remember though you're with another, baby.

I've done everything one man can do, girl
LyricsSaid every word one man can say
The thing that we had has gone astray, girl
I'm missing you from day to day.

Tears from my eyes keep on falling
cause you are leaving, leaving with another
Things that we've done together
I'll always remember though you're with another, baby.

Tears from my eyes keep on falling
cause you are leaving, leaving with another
Things that we've done together
I'll always remember though you're with another, baby.

Tears from my eyes keep on falling
cause you are leaving, leaving with another
Things that we've done together
I'll always remember though you're with another, baby.

I get my kicks from watching people
Running too and fro
And if you ask them where they're going
Half of the don't know
They're the ones who think I'm crazy
But they don't realize

That I'm just groovin', groovin'
Grooving out on life
I'm just groovin' ooh groovin'
groovin' till I die

I see a river flowing by me
Heading for the sea
I get a feeling deep inside me
It's so good to be free
I've got sunshine in the daytime
And moonlight every night
And I'm just groovin' ...... Etc

I see a river flowing by me
LyricsHeading for the sea
I get a feeling deep inside me
It's so good to be free
I've got sunshine in the daytime
And moonlight every night
And I'm just groovin' ...... Etc

That I'm just groovin', groovin'
Grooving out on life
I'm just groovin' ooh groovin'
groovin' till I die


. . .



You got a smile so bright
You know you could have been a candle
I'm holding you so tight
You know you could have been a handle
The way you swept me off my feet
You know you could've been a broom
And baby you smell so sweet
You know you could've been some perfume

[Chorus:]
Well you could of been anything that you wanted to
I can tell
The way you do the things you do

As pretty as you are
You know you could've been a flower
If good looks were minutes
You know you could have been an hour
The way you stole my heart
You know you could have been a crook
And baby your so smart
LyricsYou know you could have been a school book

[Chorus]

You make my life so rich
You know you could've been some money
And baby you're so sweet
You know you could have been some honey

[Chorus]

As pretty as you are
You know you could've been a flower
If good looks were minutes
You know you could have been an hour
The way you stole my heart
You know you could have been a crook
And baby your so smart
You know you could have been a school book

[Chorus]

I'm gonna wear you to the ball tonight
Put on your best dress tonight

Did you hear what the man said baby
Well be your best 'cause this
gonna be a musical test
So come to school, and I take up the musical rule
Give me soul brothers and give me soul sisters
Come To I and maybe you can make it if you try
So be wise and be changing, put on your best
Because I got your musical key
Rub it baby, I said scrub it, yeah.
Cause I'm tougher than tough
And that ain't no bluff
Maybe it's because I've got the musical stuff

I'm gonna make you the talk of the town
No use wearing a frown
Though those other guys may put you down
I'm gonna let you wear my crown
Though those other guys may put you down
LyricsYou'll wear my crown

Wow ! Chick-a-bow, chick-a-bow,
chick-a-bow, chick-a-bow wow wow
Give me soul brothers and give me soul sisters
Don't beg for no mercy
Move it up, break it up!
Tell you bout it, it's good
Wow! she's got it, she's got it,
she's got it, she's got it

Though those other guys may put you down
I'm gonna let you wear my crown

And we are going to have a musical ball
So get on the ball and don't stall,
I beg you baby
Wow! Tell you about it, it's good

I'm gonna wear you to the ball tonight
Put on your best dress tonight

That's for sure
Play brand new musical discs from
the flick of my wrist, baby
Wow! Tell you about it, she's got it
She's got it, she's got it Chick-a-bow,
chick-a-bow, chick-a-bow, chick-a-bow wow wow

I'm gonna wear you to the ball tonight
Put on your best dress tonight

I'm gonna make you the talk of the town
No use wearing a frown

The night seems to fade,
But the moonlight lingers on
There are wonders for everyone
The stars shine so bright,
But they're fading after dawn
There is magic in Kingston Town

Oh Kingston Town,
The place I long to be
If I had the whole world
I would give it away
Just to see, the girls at play
Ooh, ooh, ooh

And when I am king,
surely I would need a queen
And a palace and everything, yeah
And now I am king,
And my queen will come at dawn
She'll be waiting in Kingston Town

LyricsOh Kingston Town,
The place I long to be
If I had the whole world
I would give it away
Just to see, the girls at play
Ooh, ooh, ooh

And when I am king,
surely I would need a queen
And a palace and everything, yeah
And now I am king,
And my queen will come at dawn
She'll be waiting in Kingston Town

Baby be true and I'll give my love to you,
I need you baby.
Treat me right and I'll love you day and night,
I mean it baby.

When you're down I'll be around,
To guide you baby.
When you're free just call on me, baby.
I'll give my heart to you, now babe.
I'll do what you ask me too, now babe.
I mean it baby.

I'm gonna treat you, treat you right
I'm gonna love you day and night
I'm gonna give my heart away
I'm gonna love you night and day
Baby, baby.

Where were you on our wedding day
I got the bad news that you went away
Where were you little girl I say
Where were you on our wedding day

Give me back my ring
I ain't gonna let you keep a thing

Where were you when I said I do
Everybody laughing at my fine new suit
Now were where you on our wedding day

Give me back my ring.
I ain't gonna let you keep a thing

Now where were you when I searched the town
I turned the whole neighbourhood up side down
Now where were you little girl I say.
Where were you on our wedding day

Give me back my ring
LyricsI ain't gonna let you keep a thing
Give me back my ring
I ain't gonna let you keep a thing

Where were you when I said I do
Everybody laughing at my fine new suit
Now where were you little girl I say.
Where were you on our wedding day

Give me back my ring
I ain't gonna let you keep a thing

Now where were you when I searched the town
I turned the whole neighbourhood up side down
Now where were you little girl I say.
Where were you on our wedding day

Give me back my ring
I ain't gonna let you keep a thing

I've got to find sweet cherry
She's gone away from home
I've got to find sweet cherry
She's left me all alone

Cherry, Cherry,
Don't go and leave me alone
Don't go and leave me alone

My thoughts are always with you
The emptiness leaves me blue
If you should ever desert me
Then life deserts me too

Cherry, Cherry,
Don't go and leave me alone
Don't go and leave me alone

When we were together, downtown
We would do things together, downtown
The first place I met you, downtown
There we could always be.

Cherry, Cherry,
Don't go and leave me alone
Don't go and leave me alone

Stick by me and I'll stick by you
Stick by me and I'll stick by you

My life here on earth would be useless can't you see
If I didn't have you to stick by me
I love you darling and that's no lie
Stick by me and I'll stick by you
When you cry I cry too
Stick by me and I'll stick by you

Friends may try to hurt us
Scandalise our name
But no one (no-one) can tear us apart
You have a place in my heart

I love you darling and that's no lie
Stick by me and I'll stick by you
Remember my heart and love belongs to you
Stick by me and I'll stick by you
When you cry I'll cry too
Stick by me and I'll stick by you
Lyrics

It must have broke your poor little heart
When the boys used to say,
you looked better in the dark.
But now they'd give all they learnt in school
To be somewhere in the dark with you

The teacher would ask the questions
And you, would always raise your hand
But somehow you never got your turn
And my eyes would fill with water, inside I'd burn

Homely girl, you used to be so lonely
You're a beautiful woman oh yes you are
Homely girl you used to be so lonely
You're a beautiful woman oh yeah

There was a boy who used to sit beside you
Who'd like to hold that place his whole life through
Oooh you were beautiful to me
You had a heart no one could ever see, oh yes you did

LyricsHomely girl, you used to be so lonely
You're a beautiful woman oh homely girl

I was the only one who offered
To carry your books
Took all the stares and laughter
And the dirty looks
Cause I saw then what they see now
They all want to ask you for a date
They don't know how, they don't know how

Homely girl, you used to be so lonely
You're a beautiful woman oh yeah
Homely girl you used to be so lonely
You're a beautiful woman, ooh yea, ooh hoo
You're a beautiful woman


. . .



It must have broke your poor little heartWhen we were together
Those were the happiest time in all my life
Now were separated I don't know what I will do
'Cause I can't ever love another
No matter how hard I try
'Cause I know. It's impossible,

Where ever you may be
I hope you'll hear my song
Then maybe you'll realise
My love that you were wrong

'Cause I can't ever love another
No matter how hard I try
'Cause I know. It's impossible

The sunset outside my window
Has lost all it's glow
The rose in the garden
Doesn't bloom any more
