Track Name: Put Your Records On
Three little birds sat on my window.
And they told me I don't need to worry.
Summer came like cinnamon
So sweet,
Little girls double-dutch on the concrete.

Maybe sometimes we've got it wrong, but it's alright
The more things seem to change, the more they stay the same
Oh, don't you hesitate.

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

You're gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow.

Blue as the sky, sunburnt and lonely,
Sipping tea in a bar by the roadside,
(just relax, just relax)
Don't you let those other boys fool you,
Got to love that afro hair do.

Maybe sometimes we feel afraid, but it's alright
The more you stay the same, the more they seem to change.
Don't you think it's strange?

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

You're gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow.

'Twas more than I could take, pity for pity's sake
Some nights kept me awake, I thought that I was stronger
When you gonna realise, that you don't even have to try any longer?
Do what you want to.

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

Oh, you're gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow
Track Name: Night Ride Home
Once in a while
In a big blue moon
There comes a night like this
Like some surrealist
Invented this 4th of July
Night Ride Home

Hula girls
and caterpillar tractors in the sand
The ukulele man
The fireworks
This 4th of July
Night Ride Home

I love the man beside me
We love the open road
No phones till Friday
Far from the overkill
Far from the overload

Back at the bar
The band tears down
But out here in the headlight beams
The silver powerlines
Gleam
On this 4th of July
Night Ride Home

Round the curve
And a big dark horse
Red taillights on his hide
Is keeping right alongside
Rev for stride
4th of July
Night Ride Home

I love the man beside me
We love the open road
No phones till Friday
Far from the undertow
Far from the overload

Once in awhile
In a big blue moon
There comes a night like this
Like some surrealist
Invented this 4th of July
Night Ride Home
Track Name: Sometimes I'm Happy
Sometimes I'm happy,
Sometimes I'm blue.
My disposition
Depends on you.

I never mind
The rain from the sky
If I can find
The sun in your eyes.

Sometimes I love you,
Sometimes I hate you.
But when I hate you,
It's 'cause I love you.

That's how I am
So what can I do?
I'm happy when I'm with you.

Sometimes I love you,
Sometimes I hate you.
But when I hate you,
It's 'cause I love you.

That's how I am
So what can I do?
I'm happy when I'm with you.
I'm happy when I'm with you.
Track Name: Getting Some Fun Out Of Life
When we want to love, we love
When we want to kiss, we kiss
With a little petting, we're getting
Some fun out of life

When we want to work, we work
When we wanna play, we play
In a happy setting, we're getting
Some fun out of life

Maybe we do the right things
Maybe we do the wrong
Spending each day
Wending our way along

But when we want to sing, we sing
When we want to dance, we dance
You can do your betting, we're getting
Some fun out of life

Maybe we do the right things
Maybe we do the wrong
Spending each day
Wending our way along

But when we want to sing, we sing
When we wanna dance, we dance
You can do your betting, we're getting
Some fun out of life
Track Name: Stars
Living in a world
A place unexplained
It’s easy to pass the days by
People going by, a glaze in their eyes
So lonely, so unaware

We are just stars each one of us
In our own different way
Livin’ alone, tryin’ to make it each day
We are just stars each one of us
In our own different way

One day here, the next gone
Too short, but how far you’d come
Fall from the sky, tonight it’s goodbye
Surely the next star will rise

We are just stars each one of us
In our own different way
Livin’ alone tryin’ to make it each day
We are just stars, each one of us
We can make it, that’s what I pray
Track Name: Sky Won't Fall
Sky Won't Fall

Sometimes it feels like I’m in a bad movie,
I’m a star of the show but the joke is on me
Doing everything wrong, hey what’s going on
Has the world stopped spinnin’

Why is the line long when you’re in a hurry
Why is there traffic when you’re running late
Now my phone is dead, should have stayed in bed
It’s just another bad day

It’s time to get over

So I don’t worry about stormy weather
Gotta live my life now or never
Sometimes it’s hard to play with the cards in your hands
So I don’t worry about stormy weather
Gotta live my life, make it better
Ring the alarm and just sing a song
Cause the sky, the sky won’t fall tomorrow.

Why does it feel like I’m almost heart broken
How come I always pick the wrong guys
Been up and down, round and round
On a roller coaster and I realize

It’s time to get over

So I don’t worry about stormy weather
Gotta live my life now or never
Sometimes it’s hard to play with the cards in your hands
So I don’t worry abut stormy weather
Gotta live my life, make it better
Ring the alarm and just sing a song

I can look back and plead insanity
But it’s better just to laugh and carry on
Just keep calm and move along, because the sky, the sky won’t fall tomorrow.
Track Name: You'll Be In My Heart
Come stop your crying
It will be alright
Just take my hand
Hold it tight

I will protect you
From all around you
I will be here
Don't you cry

For one so small,
You seem so strong
My arms will hold you,
Keep you safe and warm
This bond between us
Can't be broken
I will be here
Don't you cry

'Cause you'll be in my heart
Yes, you'll be in my heart
From this day on
Now and forever more

You'll be in my heart
No matter what they say
You'll be here in my heart, always

Why can't they understand the way we feel?
They just don't trust what they can't explain
I know we're different but deep inside us
We're not that different at all

And you'll be in my heart
Yes, you'll be in my heart
From this day on
Now and forever more

Don't listen to them
'Cause what do they know (what do they know)?
We need each other
To have, to hold.
They'll see in time
I know

When destiny calls you
You must be strong (you gotta be strong)
I may not be with you
But you've got to hold on
They'll see in time
I know
We'll show them together
Track Name: Live Now
Live now
Don’t wait for the clouds to clear
The moment you want is here
and now

Just allow
All that you’re waiting for
You still have so much more
To give

So live now
Now is the time
Only fools fall for tomorrow

Today,
You make your dreams come true
Here’s how:
Live now
Track Name: You Give Love a Bad Name
You Give Love A Bad Name"

Shot through the heart
And you're to blame
Darling, you give love a bad name...

An angel's smile is what you sell
You promise me heaven, then put me through hell
Chains of love got a hold on me
When passion's a prison, you can't break free

Oh, oh, you're a loaded gun (yeah)
Oh, oh, there's nowhere to run
No one can save me
The damage is done

[Chorus:]
Shot through the heart
And you're to blame
You give love a bad name (bad name)
I play my part
And you play your game
You give love a bad name (bad name)
You give love a bad name
You give love a bad name

Paint your smile on your lips
Blood red nails on your fingertips
A school boy's dream, you act so shy
Your very first kiss was your first kiss goodbye

Oh, oh, you're a loaded gun
Oh, oh, there's nowhere to run
No one can save me
The damage is done

[Chorus:]
Shot through the heart
And you're to blame
You give love a bad name (bad name)
I play my part
And you play your game
You give love a bad name (bad name)
You give love... ah!
Track Name: Let's Do It (Let's Fall in Love)
Let's Do It (Let's Fall In Love)

When the little blue bird, who has never said a word
Starts to sing, Spring Spring
When the little blue bell at the bottom of the dell
Starts to ring, Ding Ding
When the little blue clerk in the middle of his work
Starts a tune to the moon up above
It is nature that's all, simply telling us to fall in love.
And that's why...

Birds do it, bees do it
Even educated fleas do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

In Spain, the best upper sets do it

Lithuanians and let's do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

The Dutch in old Amsterdam do it
Not to mention the Fins
Folks in Siam do it - think of Siamese twins

Some Argentines, without means, they do it
People say in Boston even beans do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

Romantic sponges, they say, do it
Oysters down in oyster bay do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

Cold Cape Cod clams, 'gainst their wish, do it
Even lazy jellyfish, do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

Electric eels I might add do it
Though it shocks em I know
Why ask if shad do it - Waiter bring me "shad roe"

In shallow shoals English soles do it
Goldfish in the privacy of bowls do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love
Track Name: The Nearness of You
It's not the pale moon that excites me
That thrills and delights me, oh no
It's just the nearness of you

It isn't your sweet conversation
That brings this sensation, oh no
It's just the nearness of you

When you're in my arms and I feel you so close to me
All my wildest dreams came true

I need no soft lights to enchant me
If you'll only grant me the right
To hold you ever so tight
And to feel in the night the nearness of you
Track Name: Smile
"Smile"

Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through for you

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

[instrumental interlude]

That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile
