RARE PRECIOUS AND BEAUTIFUL VOL. 2 (1968)

I was a lover, a leader of men / Follow the wind / Claustrophobia / Theme from 'Jaimie McPheeters' / Every day I have to cry / Take hold of that star / Could it be / To be or not to be / The three kisses of love / Cherry red / All of my life / Don't say goodbye.


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,...


FOLLOW THE WIND

I'm so weary from holding this load,
but it's only my love for you that I walk this lonely road,
I must follow the wind, follow the wind,
and the wind will take me hold before the cold.

Every star I have counted,
each flower I have seen,
but the place where I'm going, there's no grass as green,
I must follow the wind, follow the wind,
and the wind will take me home where I can dream.

In the hour I am lonely, your love will be mine,
I will stay in your arms dear, until comes the time.
I must be on my way for my home is anywhere.
I have no time to stay, I have no time to care.
I must follow the wind, follow the wind,
as the wind gently blows in my hair.

I must follow the wind, follow the wind,
as the wind gently blows in my hair.
I must follow the wind, follow the wind,
as the wind gently blows in my hair.


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.


THEME FROM JAIMIE MCPHEETERS
Missing


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.


TAKE HOLD OF THAT STAR

Take hold of that star I give to you
and tell me that you love me
just as I love you.
Take hold of that star and put it in your locket
and tell me that you love me
just as I love you.

I'd give you the moon or the sun
or the starlights with a love so true,
and if it rains, I'll give you a rainbow too.

Take hold of that star and put it in your locket
and tell me that you love me
just as I love you.

I'd give you the moon or the sun
or the starlights with a love so true.
and if it rains, I'll give you a rainbow too.

Take hold of that star and put it in your locket
and tell me that you love me
just as I love you.
La la la...... as I love you.


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.


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.


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.


CHERRY RED

Where are you,
Cherry red, sweeter than the honeycomb,
sweeter still when we're alone,
Cherry red, my cherry red.

Turquoise green, greener than the deeper sea ,
greener still when she's with me,
Cherry red, my cherry red.

I wonder why (wonder why)
the stars that night shine big and bright for me.
I wonder why (wonder why)
she's true to me the way that she will always be.

Cherry red, sweeter than the honeycomb,
sweeter still when we're alone,
Cherry red, my cherry red.

I wonder why (wonder why)
the stars that night shine big and bright for me.
I wonder why (wonder why)
she's true to me the way that she will always be.

Cherry red, sweeter than the honeycomb,
sweeter still when we're alone,
Cherry red, my cherry red.


ALL OF MY LIFE

There are times when I should go away
to think of you and I .
For it isn't only now,
I need your love
all of my life,
all of my life.

In the night time when I lie awake
and think of you in my arms.
For it isn't only now,
I need your kiss
all of my life,
all of my life.

Oh, wouldn't you believe me if I told you
that I love you,
and I do.
Everyone believes me when I tell them,
Why don't you?
Why don't you?

When I think of things that ought to be
and I feel your hand in mine,
yes, it isn't only now,
I need your love
all of my life,
all of my life.

La, la, la ......
All of my life,
all of my life.

Oh, wouldn't you believe if I told you
that I love you,
and I do.
Everyone believes me when I tell them,
Why don't you?
Why don't you?

When I think of things that ought to be
and I feel your hand in mine,
yes, it isn't only now,
I need your love
all of my life,
all of my life.
All of my life
All of my life
All of my life.


DON'T SAY GOODBYE

Please believe me, I will never be untrue,
and don't believe the jealous lies they told to you.
Oh no, don't go, don't make this poor boy cry,
I'll be true, I beg of you, don't say goodbye.

Now don't you know I love you more than I can say,
and it would mean my life if you should run away.
Oh no, don't go, don't make this poor boy cry,
I'll be true, I beg of you, don't say goodbye.

You just won't listen to my pleas,
you want me begging on my knees.

So sit right down and listen while I beg, you see
I'll never be untrue, so please believe in me.
Oh no, don't go, don't make this poor boy cry,
I'll be true, I beg of you, don't say goodbye.
I'll be true, I beg of you, don't say goodbye.
