Someone's knocking at the door, somebody's ringing the bell,
someone's knocking at the door, somebody's ringing the bell,
do me a favor, open the door and let 'em in.

Someone's knocking at the door, somebody's ringing the bell,
someone's knocking at the door, somebody's ringing the bell,
do me a favor, open the door and let 'em in.

Sister Suzie, brother John, Martin Luther, Phil and Don,

Later on, the story goes,
a bottle floated out to sea
After days when it had found the perfect spot,
it opened up...

And I read the note that you never wrote to me

After all, I'm sure you know,
the mayor of Baltimore is here
After days, now he can finally appear,
now at last he's here...

But he never is gonna get my vote
'Cause he never is gonna get a quote
From the little note that you never wrote to me

Further on along the line,
I was arrested on the shore
Holding papers of governments galore,
I was taken in...

But I read the note that you never wrote
Yes, I read the note that you never wrote
Oh, I read the note that you never wrote to me

To me, to me, to me...

My baby, she comes out at night
She's taking me by surprise, she's my baby
Like gravy, down to the last drop
I keep mopping her up, yeah, yeah, she's my baby

She's a baby in the morning time when the sleep is in her eyes and the world is waking up
She has a rhythm, oh, believe me, I ain't lying, she's a woman
She's a lady in the evening tide, when the stars are in the skies
That's the time she changes back into a kitten, oh, believe me, I ain't lying

She's my baby, she comes out at night
She's taking me by surprise, she's my baby
Like gravy, down to the last drop
I keep mopping her up, yeah, yeah, she's my baby

Well, she's a baby in the morning time when the sleep is in her eyes and the world is waking up
She has a rhythm, oh, believe me, I ain't lying, she's a woman
She's a lady in the evening tide, when the stars are in the skies
That's the time she changes back into a kitten, oh, believe me, I ain't lying

She's my baby, she comes out at night
She's taking me by surprise, yeah, she's my baby
Like gravy, down to the last drop
I keep mopping it up, mopping it up, yeah, she's my baby

Ooh, like gravy, down to the last drop
I keep mopping it up, mopping it up, yeah, she's my baby
Ooh, like gravy, down to the last drop
I keep mopping it up, mopping it up, yeah, she's my baby
Ooh, like gravy, down to the last drop
I keep mopping it up, mopping it up, yeah, she's my baby

Can't say I've found out
I can't tell you what it's all about
Don't know who does
I tell you to beware, my love

Beware, my love
Beware, my love
Beware, my love
Beware, my love
Beware, my love

Oh, oh, oh
No, no, no
I must be wrong, baby, yeah
But I don't believe that he's the one
But you insist I must be wrong, I must be wrong
I have to leave and when I'm gone
I'll leave my message in my song, that's right

Beware, my love, he'll bowl you over
Beware, my love before you're much older, hey
He'll sweep you up under his carpet
You'd be in luck if you could stop it, c'mon now

Beware, my love
Let me tell you

Well, he'll wear you out and in a miniute
You'll hear a shout and then you'll be in it
So, so beware my love, yeah, 'cause he'll take you under
Beware, my love, the sound of his thunder, yeah

I don't believe that he's the one
But you insist I must be wrong, I must be wrong
But I have to leave and when I'm gone
I'll leave my message in my song, that's where I'm gonna leave it

Beware, my love, don'cha know he'll bowl you over
Beware, my love before you're much older, hey
Well, he'll wear you out and in a miniute
You'll hear a shout and then you'll be in it, baby gonna leave it

Beware, beware, my love
Any minute
I don't know if I can stand it anymore
That you better be there

Can't say (I've) found out
I tell you to
Beware, my love
Beware, my love
Beware, my love
Beware, my love
Beware, my love
Beware, my love
Beware, my love
Beware, my love
Beware, my love
Beware, my love

Doctor Tom is getting on
All he does is sign his name
I get things my brainbox sings
But I'll go down again

Play with fire, getting higher
Higher than a nine foot flame
My soul is spent and so's the rent
But I'll go down again

Wino Junko can't say no
Wino Junko, eyes aglow
Pill freak, spring a leak, you can't say no
Till you go down again

This and that you crazy cat
Flying sideways once again
I'm in a spin it makes me grin
But I'll go down again

Wino Junko can't say no
Wino Junko, eyes aglow
Pill freak, spring a leak, you can't say no
Till you go down again

Wino Junko can't say no
Wino Junko, eyes aglow
Pill freak, spring a leak, you can't say no
Till you go down again

Till you go down again
Till you go down again
Till you go down

Take what I need until I bleed
People will say I've gone insane
Ain't scared to die, it's such a high
Till I go down again

Wino Junko can't say no
Wino Junko, eyes aglow
Pill freak, spring a leak, you can't say no
Till you go down again

Wino Junko can't say no
Wino Junko, eyes aglow
Pill freak, spring a leak, you can't say no
Till you go down again

Till you go down again

You'd think that people would have had enough of silly love songs
But I look around me and I see it isn't so
Some people want to fill the world with silly love songs
And what's wrong with that, I'd like to know
'Cause here I go again

I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you

(I love you) I can't explain, the feeling's plain to me, now can't you see?
(I love you) Ah, she gave me more, she gave it all to me, now can't you see?
What's wrong with that, I need to know
'Cause here I go again

I love you
I love you

Love doesn't come in a minute
Sometimes it doesn't come at all
I only know that when I'm in it
It isn't silly, love isn't silly
Love isn't silly at all

How can I tell you about my loved one?
How can I tell you about my loved one?
(I love you) How can I tell you about my loved one?
(I love you) How can I tell you about my loved one?

I love you
I love you
I love you (I can't explain the feeling's plain to me, say can't you see?)
I love you (Ah, he gave me more, he gave it all to me, say can't you see)
I love you (I can't explain the feeling's plain to me, say can't you see?) (How can I tell you about my loved one?)
I love you (Ah, he gave me more, he gave it all to me, say can't you see) (How can I tell you about my loved one?)
I love you (I can't explain the feeling's plain to me, say can't you see?) (How can I tell you about my loved one?)
I love you (Ah, he gave me more, he gave it all to me, say can't you see) (How can I tell you about my loved one?)

You'd think that people would have had enough of silly love songs
But I look around me and I see it isn't so, oh no
Some people want to fill the world with silly love songs
And what's wrong with that?

All you rocking hep cats, come on!

Ground rice, sugar, vinegar, seco salt, macaroni too
Cook of the house, I'm the cook of the house
No matter where I serve my guests, they seem to like the kitchen best
'Cause I'm the cook of the house, cook of the house

The salad's in the bowl, the rice is on the stove
Green beans in the colander and where the rest is, heaven only knows

Cinnamon, garlic, salt, pepper, cornbread, curry powder, coffee too
Cook of the house, I'm the cook of the house
No matter where I serve my guests, they seem to like the kitchen best
'Cause I'm the cook of the house, cook of the house

And where the rest is, heaven only knows

Cinnamon, garlic, salt, pepper, cornbread, curry powder, coffee too
Cook of the house (I'm the cook of the house)

No matter where I serve my guests, they seem to like the kitchen best
'Cause I'm the cook of the house (she's the cook of the house)

If I have to run, I'm not running out on you
If I have to shake a little sand out of my shoes
I'm running from the law or they'll put me inside
Baby, won't you let me have a little time to hide?
Baby, won't you let me have a little time to hide?

I've been on the run since the good Lord knows when
And the day I die, I'll still be running then
Running from the days when I would lay me down and cry
Baby, won't you let me have a little time to hide?
Baby, won't you let me have a little time to hide?

Will I love you tomorrow?
(Yes, I will) my love, (yes, I will) my love
Will I beg, steal or borrow?
Yes, I will (my love), yes, I will, (my love)

To spend a little time happy to be by your side
Baby, won't you let me have a little time to hide?
Baby, won't you let me have a little time to hide?

Baby, won't you let me have a little time to hide?

If I have to run, I'm not running out on you (runnin' out on you)
If I have to shake a little sand out of my shoes (sand in my shoes)
I'm running from the law or they'll put me inside
Baby, won't you let me have a little time to hide?
Ooh, baby, won't you let me have a little time to hide?

Baby, won't you let me have a little time?
Baby, won't you let me have a little time?
Baby, won't you let me have a little time to hide?

I've just seen another sunset on my own
All day long I've been alone
And I must do something about it
Yes, I must do something about it

Played another losing card game with myself
Lonely joker on the shelf
And I must do something about it
Yes, I must do something about it

No one on the party line, no one seems to need a dime
No one even knows that I'm feeling this way
No one seems to need my vote, no one has to change a note
No one here to hold my coat, oh what a day

I've just watched another movie on TV
No one's in the house but me
And I must do something about it
Yes, I must do something about it
Oh, oh, something about it

I've just dialed another number on my phone
All day long I've been alone
And I must do something about it
Yes, I must do something about it

I've just seen another sunset on my own
All day long I've been alone
And I must do something about it
Yes, I must do something about it

Must do something about it
Yes, I must do something about it

. . .


You've got a lot
And from what you've got I'd say you're doing well, dear
Dressed like a dream
And if things are what they seem, you're looking swell, dear

Your little man (your little man)
Brings you trinkets when he can but he can't stay, dear
That's very well (that's very well)
But inside your shiny shell you dance all day, dear

So go be gay (so go be gay)
Let your feelings leap away into the laughter
San Ferry Anne (San Ferry Anne)
And the world keeps turning happy ever after

. . .


A love so warm and beautiful
Stands when time itself is falling
A love so warm and beautiful
Never fades away

Love, faith and hope are beautiful
When your world is touched by sadness
To each his own is wonderful
Love will never die

Sunlight's morning glory
Tells the story of our love
Moonlight on the water
Brings me inspiration ever after

Sunlight's morning glory
Tells the story of our love
Moonlight on the water
Brings me inspiration ever after

A love so warm and beautiful
Stands when time itself is calling
A love so warm and beautiful
Never fades away
Never fades away

Bridge On The River Suite

[No lyrics]

Sowhere to the south of New York City
Lies the friendly state of Tennessee,
Down in Nashville then I met a pretty
Who made a pretty big fool out of me.
And they call her Sally,
Sally G, why d'you wanna do the things you do to me?
You're my Sally, Sally G
took the part that was the heart of me, Sally G.

The night life took me down to Printers Alley,
where Sally sang a song behind a bar.
I ran my eyes across her as she sang a tangled mime,
I used to love to hear her sweet guitar.

And they call her Sally,
Sally G, why d'you wanna do the things you do to me?
You're my Sally, Sally G
took the part that was the heart of me, Sally G.

Me and Sally took up,
things began to look up,
Me and her were going strong.

Then she started lyin',
I could see our love was dyin'.
I heard a voice say,
"Move along, move along".

Well now. I'm on my own again,
I wonder if she ever really understood.
I never thought to ask her what the letter "G" stood for,
But I know for sure it wasn't good.

And they call her Sally,
Sally G, why d'you wanna do the things you do to me?
You're my Sally, Sally G
