MANDO BAY

Here comes the night again
Nights that never end
Ain't got no friends to guide me anymore
Believe me, I just want your heart
We're two worlds apart
To walk on the white sand with you forever more

Mando Bay, Mando Bay
Where the happy children play
Where my heart just longs to stay
I'm going home to Mando Bay

One more night with you
Paradise and blue
We'll walk on the sand and fall in love again
Believe me, my arms are open wide
I can't wait so long
To walk on the white sand with you by my side

Mando Bay, Mando Bay
Where the happy children play
Where my heart just longs to stay
I'm going home to Mando Bay

Here comes the night again
Nights that never end
Ain't got no friends to guide me anymore
Believe me, I will be right there
The tide shines in your hair
To walk on the white sands with you forever more

Mando Bay, Mando Bay
Where the happy children play
Where she longs for me to stay
I'm going home to Mando Bay


ONE BAD THING


One, two, one, two...
Da, da, da, da...
(Ooh)
Ah...ah...

Now, baby, there's no use in you sittin' and cryin'
I found out all of your lyin'
I'm not mad 'cause that's how it's got to be
But just because you think my life doesn't matter
I'm your fool, you see, your mad hatter
So make me see
Just what you're doing to me

You know that one bad thing leads to another
You don't need one more circus lover
Leave me alone
I'll come out strong

Da, da, da, da...
(Ooh)
Ah....ah...

Now, baby, there's no use in you sittin' and cryin'
I found out all of your lyin'
I'm not mad 'cause that's how it's got to be
But just because you think my life doesn't matter
I'm your fool, you see, your mad hatter
So make me see
Just what you're doing to me

You know that one bad thing leads to another
You don't need one more circus lover
Leave me alone
I'll come out strong
Ah...
You know that one bad thing leads to another
You don't need one more circus lover
Leave me alone
I'll come out strong

Da, da, da, da...
(Ooh)
Da, da, da, da...


THE DAY YOUR EYES MEET MINE

Do, do, do, do...
The day your eyes meet mine
Now that will be a day
A million bells from miles around
Will start to play

I'll take your hand
Side by side
We'll walk the avenues
The day that our love comes true

The night your lips meet mine
Now that will be a night
A million violins will play
By candlelight

And we'll renew
The love we knew
Until the end of time
The day that your eyes meet mine

Do, do, do, do...
Do, do, do, do...
Do, do, do, do...
Do, do, do, do...

And we'll renew
The love we knew
Until the end of time
The day that your eyes meet mine


HAPPINESS

Just because I told you lies and made a fool of you,
you know I didn't mean to do,
and all I ever asked was happiness.

I cheated and I lied and it was meant to be,
but you know I did the same to me,
and all I ever asked was happiness.

Don't take my love away
and leave me alone.
And I think about you more and more and more each day.
Please let me come home.

Just remember I still love you and I need you so.
You know I didn't mean to go,
and all I ever asked was happiness.

Don't take my love away,
don't leave me alone.
And I think about you more and more and more each day,
so won't you let me come home?

Just remember I still love you and I need you so.
You know I didn`t mean to go,
And all I ever asked was happiness,

Just remember I still love you and I need you so.
You know I didn't mean to go.
And all I ever asked was happiness,
happiness,
happiness.


PEACE IN MY MIND

Deep in the night
A lonely virgin
Keeps a vigil high on the hill
She is the horn I blow
A lonely shepard
Counting his sheep when the morning is still

Peace in my mind
A love in my heart
It's something you've still got to learn
The moment you find
It's drifted apart
Slowly but surely you'll turn
Let the whole world pick up my lines
All I ask is peace in my mind

You've come to see
Ten years later
You find a street where the flowers should be
Though you don't know
You're wearing glasses
Still making passes at things you can see

Oh, peace in my mind
A love in my heart
It's something you've still got to learn
The moment you find
It's drifted apart
Slowly but surely you'll turn
Let the whole world pick up my lives
All I ask is peace in my mind

Peace in my mind
And a love in my heart
It's something you've still got to learn
And the moment you find
It's drifted apart
Slowly but surely you'll turn
Let the whole world pick up my lives
All I ask is peace in my mind
Do, ro, do, do...
Do, ro, do, do...
Do, ro, do, do...
Ah...


WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT 

Missing



MANDO BAY

Here comes the night again
Nights that never end
Ain't go no friends to guide me anymore
Believe me, I just want your heart
We're two worlds apart
To walk on the white sand with you forever more

Mando Bay, Mando Bay

CLYDE O'RILEY

Well, Clyde O'Riley had so many virtues,
He'd have lived much longer with none,
I guess the only good thing that ever kept him alive,
Were the visions of a man from a son,
He worked the fields all day,
Till his face turned grey,
He never sold no more than ten bucks,
But his hand held the gun of a young man's gun,
And the old face just smiled and said "Shucks",

You can take my cattle and my sheep man,
But when you're talking about my son,
Well, mister there's no use in you talking,
When you're looking down the nose of my gun.

Well, the sheriff said "Riley, you'd better hear me first,
Did your son ever tell you no lie?
Well, if he didn't then you know about the bullet in the back,
Of a man who didn't even know why.
You can't hold back the arm of justice,
And a bullet won't stop, won’t stop the law.
You can shoot down the men behind me,
But I cabled twenty more".

No man just lie, he said

You can take my cattle and my sheep man,
But when you're talking about my son,
Well, mister there's no use in you talking,
When you're looking down the nose of my gun.

You can take my cattle and my sheep man,
But when you're talking about my son,
Oh mercy you ain't no judge and jury,
And on my land condemn no one.

Well, the boy won the fight and shot ten men,
Everybody wanted that boys head,
From town to town from state to state,
How a murders reputation spread.
'Cause you can't hold back the arm of justice,
And a bullet won't stop, won’t stop the law,
You can shoot down the men behind me,
But I cabled twenty more.

You can take my cattle and sheep man,
But when you're talking about my son,
You ain't no judge and jury,
You ain’t hanging any more.
That’s what he said.


I JUST WANT TO TAKE CARE OF YOU

Your lonely house is ended
There's no fun or laughter
From this day, I'm your friend, girl
Is it love you're after?

I just want; I just wanna take care of you
Don't let me hear it's over
I've heard that song so many times before
Don't let me hear it again

You don't have to hold me
Come down off your laughter
Is it true what you told me
That it's love you're after?
(Is it love you're after?)

Ah, I just want; I just wanna take care of you
Don't let me hear it's over
I've heard that song so many times before
Don't let me hear it again

Oh, I just want; I just wanna take care of you (yeah)
Don't let me hear it's over
I've heard that song so many times before
Don't let me hear it again

Don't let me hear it's over (it's over)
Don't say the words "It's over" (it's over)
Girl, please, don't say it's over (it's over, over)


I'LL KISS YOUR MEMORY

Maybe it's been so long.
Our house looks kind of different.
But the empty rooms still mean the same to me.
And as I wander through the darkness.
I'll keep crying one last tear.
Now your lips are gone.
I'll kiss your memory.

I'll kiss your memory
as though you were here.
I'll hold your memories till you reappear.
And as I wander through the darkness
I'll keep crying one last tear.
Now your lips are gone,
I'll kiss your memory.

I'll kiss the thoughts of leaves that fell when summer was over.
And I'll cherish all the thoughts you gave to me.
And I will wander through the darkness.
I'll keep crying one last tear.
Now your lips are gone,
I'll kiss your memory.

I'll kiss your memory
as though you were here.
I'll hold your memories till you reappear.
And as I wander through the darkness
I'll keep crying one last tear.
Now your lips are gone,
I'll kiss your memory.


VICTIM

An echo that seemed to come from every direction,
The echo of someone’s voice,
Down filthy streets and cobblestones,
The echo had no choice,

In darkness I have never known,
I raised my stick forth true,
And like a blind man, tried to find!
Each corner that I knew.

Someone picked him he is the victim,
No one can help me now,
For who can mend a broken heart,
When there’s no one else around, to show me how.

Born and raised in the place I stood,
I gave my mind to my feet,
Then darkness fell on darkness, and yet more!
I could not find that street,
The coming of my panic, and the overcome of fear,
Paralysed my senses,
Would the echo find me here.

Someone picked him he is the victim,
No one can help me now,
For who can mend a broken heart,
When there’s no one else around, to show me how.

Someone picked him he is the victim,
No one can help me now,
For who can mend a broken heart,
When there’s no one else around, to show me how,
To show me how,
Show me how,
Show me how ………


THIS TIME

This time it's gonna be different
I'm gonna do things my way
Things are gonna be much different this time

This time my love will be stronger
This time my days will be longer
Things are gonna be much different this time

Then I'll go where I must
My love in my hand
With all of your problems you don't need that

This time it's gonna be different
I'm gonna do things my way
Things are gonna be much different this time

Things are gonna be much different this time

Then I'll go where I must
My love in my hand
With all of your problems you don't need that

Ahhh this time it's gonna be different
I'm gonna do things my way
Things are gonna be much different this time

Things are gonna be much different this time

This Time

This Time

This Time


BORN

People want to show me the right way to walk.
People want to show me the right way to talk.
You can keep on begging people say no.
You put on a funny face,
so the hurt doesn't show.

I wake up and I wake up,
and what do I find?
Just another hang up
hanging on my mind.
But if someone would show me
the right way to be,
then I'd be just another man,
another man free.

I was born to be humble,
I was born to be proud,
born to stand alone, yeah,
or stand in a crowd.
I was born to be needed,
born to be free,
born to be loved, yeah,
born to be me.

I wake up and I wake up,
and what do I find?
Just another hang up
hanging on my mind.
But if someone would show me
the right way to be,
then I'd be just another man,
another man free.another man free.

I was born to be humble,
I was born to be proud,
born to stand alone, yeah,
or stand in a crowd.
I was born to be needed,
born to be free,
born to be loved, yeah,
born to be me.


MOONLIGHT

Moonlight,
shining on an avenue,
can you stay the whole night through?
Keep her by my side.

Moonlight,
can't you keep away the dawn?
I lose her when your magic's gone.
Keep her by my side.

You know
the reason you are here, moon.
Your reason is very clear, moon.
She's my love and she's my girl,
she's my life, my soul, my world.

Moonlight,
shining on an avenue,
can you stay the whole night through?
Keep her by my side.

You know
the reason you are here, moon.
Your reason is very clear, moon.
She's my love, and she's my girl,
she's my life, my soul, my world.

Moonlight,
can't you keep away the dawn?
I lose her when your magic's gone.
Keep her by my side.


KING KATHY

Missing



SUMMER ENDS

A lonely leaf must fall and blow,
but still the trees will stand and grow.
So many years that come and go
won't ever take away the love I know.

A lonely tear must touch the ground
with nobody's love when no one's around.
And summer ends just like a dream,
a broken heart, a dying stream.
I won't forget our love is gone.
If summer ends my love,
still my love goes on.

A lonely rose must surely die.
And who am I to find out why.
If love must come, then love must go,
but that won't take away the love I know.

And summer ends just like a dream,
a broken heart, a dying stream,
I won't forget, our love is gone.
If summer ends my love,
still my love goes on.
