WINE AND WOMEN

Wine and women and song will only make me sad.
Love and kisses and hugs, the things I never had.
If this should end, I don't mind.
If this should end, I will find.
What shall I do (what shall I do).
What shall I do (what shall I do).
 
Cars and buses and trams make a lot of noise.
All my women have gone out with other boys.
If this should end, I don't mind.
If this should end, I will find.
I won't complain (I won't complain).
I feel no pain (I feel no pain).
 
Ooh..
If this should end, I don't mind.
If this should end, I will find.
I won't complain (I won't complain).
I feel no pain (I feel no pain).
 
Wine and women and song will only make me sad.
Love and kisses and hugs, the thing I never had.
If this should end, I don't mind.
If this should end, I will find.
I won't complain (I won't complain).
I feel no pain ( I feel no pain).
I won't complain, cry.
 

I WAS A LOVER, A LEADER OF MAN
 
Ah, ah, ah, ah.
I was a lover, a leader of men,
all of the women I knew were my friends.
I was so happy, my feet on the ground,
I didn't know I was on the way down
'cause you don't feel the same,
it's only a game, it's only a game, it's only a game.
 
Ah, ah, ah, ah.
I had a billion or two in the bank,
I gave to charity, ain't got no thanks.
You gave me all that a woman could give
less your affection, I don't want to live
'cause you don't feel the same,
it's only a game, it's only a game, it's only a game.
 
'cause you don't feel the same
 
I was a lover, a leader of men,
all of the women I knew were my friends.
I was so happy, my feet on the ground,
I didn't know, I was on the way down
'cause you don't feel the same,
it's only a game, it's only a game, it's only a game.
 
Ah, ah, ah,...
 

TIMBER
 
When I first saw you standing there, you set my heart reeling,
baby, you gave me such a feeling ,
my heart cries timber, timber, timber, timber,
timber, baby, 'cause I'm a falling for you,
yeah, yeah, yeah.
 
Well, it happens every time I look in your eyes,
baby, it's paradise,
my heart cries timber, timber, timber, timber,
timber, baby, 'cause I'm falling for you,
yeah, yeah, yeah.
 
Well, I wish that you were mine to be forever and ever.
Without you darling I just can't sleep.
I'm only happy when we're together.
 
I guess it's time that I told you so.
I'll always want to hold you.
Baby, have I ever told you
my heart cries timber, timber, timber, timber,
timber, baby, 'cause I'm falling for you,
yeah, yeah, yeah.
 
I wish that you were mine and keen forever and ever.
Without you darling I just can't sleep.
I'm only happy when we're together.
 
I guess it's time that I told you so.
I'll always want to hold you.
Baby, have I ever told you
my heart cries timber, timber, timber, timber,
timber, baby, 'cause I'm falling for you,
yeah, yeah, yeah.
...
 
 
CLAUSTROPHOBIA
 
I'd like to be the one to see
your loving mind at the start,
but I get claustrophobia
'cause there's too many boys in your heart.
I'd like to know how far you'd go
to use those lips of wine,
but I get claustrophobia
'cause there's too many boys on your mind.
 
Oh, oh, oh, one, two, three and now there's me,
you practice to deceive,
you lead me on another one,
I've got no room to breathe.
 
So bye-bye you who can't be true,
I'm leaving you behind,
'cause I get claustrophobia
'cause there's too many boys on your mind.
 
I get claustrophobia
'cause there's too many boys on your mind.
 
Oh, oh, oh, one, two, three and now there's me,
you practice to deceive,
you lead me on another one,
I've got no room to breathe.
 
So bye-bye you who can't be true,
I'm leaving you behind
'cause I get claustrophobia
'cause there's too many boys on your mind,
too many boys on your mind,
too many boys on your mind.
 
 
COULD IT BE
 
Look at me,
I don't know what I'm doing
ever since I looked at you.
How did I get this crazy feeling?
Could it be I'm in love with you?
 
Ever since I saw you in the moonlight
I've had this feeling through and through,
since that time, I haven't done a thing right.
Could it be I'm in love with you?
 
Oh golly gee,
I don't know where I'm going,
I'm trying to make you see,
oh boy, I got to make her fall in love with me.
 
Oh, night after night, I'm always dreaming,
why don't you make those dreams come true?
Can't you see how much I really love you?
Why don't you learn to love me too?
 
Oh golly gee,
I don't know where I'm going,
I'm trying to make you see,
oh boy, I got to make her fall in love with me.
 
Oh, night after night, I'm always dreaming,
why don't you make those dreams come true?
Can't you see how much I really love you?
Why don't you learn to love me too?
Love me too,
love me too.
 
 
 PEACE OF MIND
 
Ah........
Some may find peace of mind loving a girl like you
but I can say, in your way, you only make me blue.
Some may say you don't play, you have a heart that's true
but how can they believe what you say, you only make me blue.
 
You hurt me and you fool around.
You don't even give me a chance.
Well it's over and I'm telling you
it's the end of our romance.
 
Some may find peace of mind loving a girl like you
but I can say, in your way, you only make me blue.

it's the end of our romance.
 
Some may find peace of mind loving a girl like you
but I can say, in your way, you only make me blue.
Ah.....
 

TO BE OR NOT TO BE
 
You build me up,
you let me down .
How can I love,
you give me no ground.
To be or not to be,
to be or not to be,
am I gonna have you for me.
 
One little light
I saw this morn.
The light in your eyes,
I don't see no more.
To be or not to be,
to be or not to be,
am I gonna have you for me,
well.
 
Give me a chance.
Make up your mind.
Give me romance.
Tell me you're mine.
To be or not to be,
well, to be or not to be,
am I gonna have you for me,
well.
 
Well, to be or not to be.
Well, to be or not to be.
To be or not to be,
am gonna have you for me.
 
Well, to be or not to be.
Well, to be or not to be.
Well, to be or not to be .
am I gonna have you for me.
 

I DON'T THINK IT'S FUNNY
 
You get your pleasures out of hurting me, honey.
You get your kicks out of watching me cry.
You play around an awful lot to hurt me, honey.
Why do you laugh when there are tears in my eyes?
 
I don't think it's funny, honey.
My days are not so sunny.
Why don't you make up your mind?
Let me put my arms around you,
make rainbows all around you
but I don't know if you are mine.
 
If I was yours and you were mine, my little honey,
we could be happy till the very day I die,
but all you ever want to do is hurt me, honey.
Why do you laugh when there are tears in my eyes?
 
I don't think it's funny, honey.
My days are not so sunny.
Why don't you make up your mind?
Let me put my arms around you,
make rainbows all around you
but I don't know if you are mine.
 
I don't think it's funny, honey.
My days are not so sunny.
Why don't you make up your mind?
Let me put my arms around you,
make rainbows all around you
but I don't know if you are mine,
but I don't know if you are mine,
but I don't know if you are mine.
 

THE THREE KISSES OF LOVE
 
Kiss me once, oh yeah, baby.
Kiss me twice, oh yeah, crazy.
Kiss me three times
the three kisses of love, oh yeah .
 
Morning, noon, and at night,
never gonna let you out of sight,
kiss me three times
the three kisses of love.
 
Tell me that you really care.
I run your fingers through my hair.
Kiss me once,
kiss me twice
and I'm in paradise.
 
Kiss me once, oh yeah, baby.
Kiss me twice, oh yeah, crazy.
Kiss me three times
the three kisses of love.
 
Tell me that you really care.
I run your fingers through my hair.
Kiss me once,
kiss me twice
and I'm in paradise.
 
Kiss me once, oh yeah, baby.
Kiss me twice, oh yeah, crazy.
Kiss me three times
the three kisses of love,
the three kisses of love.
 
 
THE BATTLE OF THE BLUE AND THE GREY
 
Now it's gone, gone, gone, those years have passed away.
It's gone, gone, gone, there's truth in what I say.
It's gone, gone, gone, there's nothing more to say
but I'd do anything if I could do it all again.
 
Well, I'm an old man now and I'm born to win the race.
People won't believe me but there's truth in what I say.
Many hearts were broken and a lot of tears were shed.
The sky was black and the battlefield was red.
 
Now it's gone, gone, gone, those years have passed away.
It's gone, gone, gone, there's truth in what I say.
It's gone, gone, gone , there's nothing more to say
but I'd do anything if I could do it all again .
 
Now, Stonewall Jackson stepped right up and then he said to me
He said: The battle is getting rough, son, guess we better flee.
There's grapeshot all around us and the field is black with lead.
You better start running boy before you lose your head.
 
Now it's gone, gone, gone, those years have passed away.
It's gone, gone, gone, there's truth in what I say.
It's gone, gone, gone, there's nothing more to say
but I'd do anything if I could do it all again.
 
Well, the cannons roared around us and the field was black with lead,
I picked a soldier dressed in blue and filled him full of lead,
I picked out six more soldiers there sitting on a mound,
I fixed my bayonet to my gun and really mowed them down.
 
Now, it's gone, gone, gone, those years have passed away.
It's gone, gone, gone, there's truth in what I say.
It's gone, gone, gone, there's nothing more to say
but I'd do anything if I could do it all again,
but I'd do anything if I could do it all again. 
 
 
THEME FROM THE TRAVELS OF JEANNIE MCPHEETERS 
 
Missing
 
 
TURN AROUND LOOK AT ME
 
There is someone walking behind you,
turn around, look at me.
There is someone watching your footsteps,
turn around, look at me.
 
There is someone tells you love you,
it's my heart, it's my heart,
turn around, look at me, at the start.
 
There is someone standing beside you,
turn around (turn around), look at me (look at me).
There is someone to love and guide you,
turn around (turn around), look at me (look at me).
 
I'll be waiting for now and forever
for you to come to me.
Turn around, look at me,
turn around, look at me.
 
I'll be waiting for now and forever
for you to come to me.
Turn around, look at me,
turn around (turn around), look at me.
 

EVERY DAY I HAVE TO CRY
 
There was a little girl I planned to marry,
if this was my love I didn't want to share.
I thought that love would make my life bright and sunny,
but she said she could not love me 'cause I didn't have no money.
 
Every day I have to cry so,
drying the water from my eyes so,
till the clouds slowly pass by (?)
every day I have to cry.
 
I got me a girl,
I guess I really love her,
'cause every night I've been thinking over.
But you can't live all your love this morning,
but if you do it's gonna hurt somebody.
Every day I have to cry so,
drying the water from my eyes so,
till the clouds slowly pass by (?)
every day I have to cry.
 
I thought I know she's just a woggle (?)
if she found a love because she's not a rich girl (?)
but every time you reach love this morning (?)
every time it's gonna hurt somebody.
 
Every day I have to cry so,
drying the water from my eyes so,
till the clouds slowly pass by (?)
every day I have to cry.
 

HOW LOVE WAS TRUE
 
How love was true yesterday.
I love you every way.
I saw you standing there,
you gave me cause to stare,
and then I knew I had to have you.
 
You could be mine if you tried.
All that you do is tell me lies.
(Ah) You think that love's a game
(Ah) but I don't feel the same.
(Ah) I should have known
(Ah) that I'd get the pain.
 
How love was true yesterday.
I love you every way.
I saw you standing there,
you gave me cause to stare,
and then knew I had to have you.
 

YOU WON'T SEE ME
 
When I call you up
Your line's engaged
I have had enough
So act your age
 
We have lost the time
That was so hard to find
And I will lost my mind
If you won't see me
You won't see me
 
I don't know why
You should want to hide
But I can't get through
My hands are tied
I won't want to stay
I don't gave much to say
But I can't turn away
And you won't see me
You won't see me
 
Time after time
You refuse to even listen
I wouldn't mind
If I knew what I was missing
 
Though the days are few
They're filled with tears
And since I lost you
It feels like years
 
Yes, it seems so long
Girl, since you've been gone
And I just can't go on
If you won't see me
You won't see me
 
Time after time
You refuse to even listen
I wouldn't mind
If I knew what I was missing
 
Though the days are few
They're filled with tears
And since I lost you
It feels like years
 
Yes, it seems so long
Girl, since you've been gone
And I just can't go on
If you won't see me
You won't see me
 
 
LONELY WINTER
 
Now the summer's gone,
And the winter's coming on,
And I wait for you,
But I know that you have gone away from me,
And I know, yes I know
It's gonna be a lonely winter.
 
Just to walk alone,
And leave all the love we've known.
Autumn leaves will fall.
Wish winter would only call you back to me.
And I know, yes I know
It's gonna be a lonely winter.
 
It, I know, could be a very long time.
I can't make your love mine,
Mine and mine alone.
But I know that I can't make you love me,
I can't make you want me,
Till the winter's gone.
 
Leaves begin to fall,
And the trees begin to bare.
Then I wait for you,
But I know that you're not here.
You've gone away.
And I know, yes I know
It's gonna be a lonely winter.
