Georgie Fame - Yeh Yeh


Every evening, when all my days work is through

I call my baby, and ask her what shall we do

I mention movies, but she don't seem to dig that

And then she ask me, why don't I come to her flat

And have some supper and let the evening pass by

By playing records, beside a groovy hi-fi

I say yeah yeah that's what I say, I say yeah yeah


My baby loves me, she gets me feeling so fine

And when she loves me, she let's me know that she's mine

And when she kisses, I feel the fire get hot

Se never misses, she gives me all that she's got

And when she ask me, if everything is OK

I've got my answer, the only thing I can say, I say Yeah yeah

That's what I say, I say yeah yeah


We'll play a melody and turn the lights down low

So that no-one can see

We gotta do that, we gotta do that

We gotta do that, we gotta do that

And there'll be no one else alive in all the world 'cept you and me

Yea, yea, yea, yea, yea

Yea, yea, yea, yea

Pretty baby I never knew such a thrill

Just thought I'd tell you, because I'm trembling still

But pretty baby, I want you all for my own

I think I'm ready to leave those others alone

No need to ask me if everything is OK

I got my answer, the only thing I can say

I say yeah yeah, that's what I say, I say yeah yeah

That's what I say, yeah yeah


We'll play a melody and turn the lights down low

So that no-one can see

We gotta do that, we gotta do that

We gotta do that, we gotta do that

And there'll be no one else alive in all the world 'cept you and me

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah yeah

Yea, yea, yea, yea

Pretty baby I never knew such a thrill

Just thought I'd tell you, because I'm trembling still

But pretty baby, I want you all for my own

I think I'm ready to leave those others alone

No need to ask me if everything is OK

I got my answer, the only thing I can say

I say yeah yeah, that's what I say, I say yeah yeah

That's what I say, I say yeah yeah

That's what I say, I say yeah yeah

The Righteous Brothers - You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'


You never close your eyes anymore when I kiss your lips

And there's no tenderness like before in your fingertips

You're trying hard not to show it, (baby)

But baby, baby I know it


You've lost that lovin' feeling

Whoa, that lovin' feeling

You've lost that lovin' feeling

Now it's gone, gone, gone wooooooh


Now there's no welcome look in your eyes when I reach for you

And now your're starting to critisize little things I do

It makes me just feel like crying, (baby)

'Cause baby, something beautiful's dying


You've lost that lovin' feeling

Whoa, that lovin' feeling

You've lost that lovin' feeling

Now it's gone, gone, gone wooooooh


Baby, baby, I'd get down on my knees for you

If you would only love me like you used to do, yeah


We had a love, a love, a love you don't find everyday

So don't, don't, don't, don't let it slip away


Baby (baby), baby (baby),

I beg of you please,(please) please (please)

I need your love (I need your love), I need your love (I need your love)

So bring it on back (So bring it on back), Bring it on back (so bring it on

back)


Bring back that lovin' feeling

Whoa, that lovin' feeling

Bring back that lovin' feeling

'Cause it's gone, gone, gone

And I can't go on

no


Bring back that lovin' feeling,

Whoa, that lovin' feeling

Bring back that lovin' feeling

'Cause it's gone, gone

The Kinks - Tired Of Waiting

Ken Dodd - Tears


Tears for souvenirs are all you've left me

Memories of a love you never meant

I just can't believe you could forget me

After all those happy hours we spent (together)


Tears have been my only consolation

But tears can't mend a broken heart I must confess

Let's forgive and forget

Turn our tears of regret

Once more to tears of happiness


Tears have been my only consolation

But tears can't mend a broken heart I must confess

Let's forgive and forget

Turn our tears of regret

Once more to tears of happiness


Let's forgive and forget

Turn our tears of regret

Once more to tears of happiness.



The Beatles - Day Tripper


Got a good reason for taking the easy way out,

Got a good reason for taking the easy way out - now,


She was a day tripper,

One way ticket, yeh,

It took me so long to find out, and I found out.


She's a big teaser, she took me half the way there,

She's a big teaser, she took me half the way there - now,


She was a day tripper,

One way ticket, yeh.

It took me so long to find out, and I found out.


Tried to please her, she only played one night stands,

Tried to please her, she only played one night stands - now,


She was a day tripper,

Sunday driver, yeh,

It took me so long to find out, and I found out.

Day tripper, yeh.





The Rolling Stones - Get Off My Cloud


I live on an apartment on the ninety-ninth floor of my block

And I sit at home looking out the window imagining the world has stopped

Then in flies a guy who's all dressed up just like a Union Jack

And says, I've won five pounds if I have his kind of detergent pack


I said, Hey! You! Get off of my cloud

Hey! You! Get off of my cloud

Hey! You! Get off of my cloud

Don't hang around 'cause two's a crowd

On my cloud, baby


The telephone is ringing I say, Hi, it's me. Who is it there on the line

A voice says, Hi, hello, how are you

Well, I guess I'm doin' fine

He says, It's three a.m., there's too much noise

Don't you people ever wanna go to bed

Just 'cause you feel so good, do you have to drive me out of my head


I said, Hey! You! Get off of my cloud

Hey! You! Get off of my cloud

Hey! You! Get off of my cloud

Don't hang around 'cause two's a crowd

On my cloud, baby


I was sick and tired, fed up with this and decided to take a drive downtown

It was so very queit and peaceful there was nobody, not a soul around

I laid myself out, I was so tired and I started to dream

In the morning the parking tickets were just like a flag stuck on my windscreen


I said, Hey! You! Get off of my cloud

Hey! You! Get off of my cloud

Hey! You! Get off of my cloud

Don't hang around 'cause two's a crowd

On my cloud

Hey! You! Get off of my cloud

Hey! You! Get off of my cloud

Hey! You! Get off of my cloud

Don't hang around 'cause two's a crowd

On my cloud

The Seekers - I'll Never Find Another You


There's a new world somewhere

They call The Promised Land

And I'll be there some day

If you will hold my hand

I still need you there beside me

No matter what I do

For I know I'll never find another you


There is always someone

For each of us they say

And you'll be my someone

For ever and a day

I could search the whole world over

Until my life is through

But I know I'll never find another you


It's a long, long journey

So stay by my side

When I walk through the storm

You'll be my guide

Be my guide


If they gave me a fortune

My pleasure would be small

I could lose it all tomorrow

And never mind at all

But if I should lose your love, dear

I don't know what I'd do

For I know I'll never find another you


But if I should lose your love, dear

I don't know what I'd do

For I know I'll never find another you

Another you

Another you


Sandie Shaw - Long Live Love


Venus must have heard my plea

She has sent someone along for me


I have waited a long long time

For somebody to call mine

And at last he's come along

Baby oh nothing can go wrong

We meet every night at eight

And I don't get home till late

I say to myself each day

Baby oh long long live love

Mmmm


True love must be the greatest thing

I know now why singers sing

Of the moon and stars above

How I love to be in love

We meet every night at eight

And I don't get home till late

I say to myself each day

Baby oh long long live love


Now of one thing I'm more than sure

Since love come I don't want more

Than to kiss him every night

Makes everything alright

We meet every night at eight

And I don't get home till late

I say to myself each day

Baby oh long long live love

Mmmmm


We meet every night at eight

And I don't get home till late

I say to myself each day

Baby oh long long live love

Mmmmm

Long long live love


Roger Miller - King Of The Road


Trailers for sale or rent

Rooms to let, fifty cents

No phone, no pool, no pets

I ain't got no cigarettes

Ah, but two hours of pushin' broom

Buys an eight by twelve four-bit room

I'm a man of means by no means

King of the road


Third boxcar, midnight train

Destination Bangor, Maine

Old worn out suit and shoes

I don't pay no union dues

I smoke old stogies I have found

Short, but not too big around

I'm a man of means by no means

King of the road


I know every engineer on every train

All of their children, and all of their names

And every handout in every town

And every lock that ain't locked

When no one's around


I sing

Trailers for sale or rent

Rooms to let, fifty cents

No phone, no pool, no pets

I ain't got no cigarettes

Ah, but, two hours of pushin' broom

Buys an eight by twelve four-bit room

I'm a man of means by no means

King of the road


Trailers for sale or rent

Rooms to let, fifty cents

No phone, no pool, no pets

I ain't got no cigarettes

Ah, but, two hours of pushin' broom

Buys an eight by twelve four-bit room

Elvis Presley - Crying In The Chapel


You saw me crying in the chapel

The tears I shed were tears of joy

I know the meaning of contentment

Now that we've been with the Lord


Just a plain and simple chapel

Where all good people go to pray

I pray the Lord that I'll grow stronger

As I live from day to day


I've searched and I've searched, but I couldn't find

No way on earth to gain peace of mind


Now I'm happy in the chapel

Where people are of one accord

Yes, we gather in the chapel

Just to sing and praise the Lord


You'll search and you'll search, but you'll never find

No way on earth to gain peace of mind


Take your troubles to the chapel

Get down on your knees and pray

Then your burdens will be lighter

and you'll surely find the way

(and you'll surely find the way)

The Rolling Stones - The Last Time


I've told you once and I've told you twice

But you never listen to my advice

You don't try very hard to please me

With what you know it should be easy


Well this could be the last time

This could be the last time

Maybe the last time

I don't know, oh no, oh no


Well I'm sorry girl but I can't stay

Feeling like I do today

There's too much pain and too much sorrow

Guess I'll feel the same tomorrow


Well this could be the last time

This could be the last time

Maybe the last time

I don't know

Oh no, oh no


Well this could be the last time

This could be the last time

Maybe the last time

I don't know

Oh no, oh no


Well I've told you once and I've told you twice

Someone'll have to pay the price

Here's the chance to change your mind

Cuz I'll be gone a long long time


Well this could be the last time

This could be the last time

Maybe the last time

I don't know

Oh no, oh no


Last time baby

Unit Four Plus Two - Concrete And Clay


You to me

Are sweet as roses in the morning

And you to me

Are soft as summer rain at dawn, in love we share

That something rare


The sidewalks in the street

The concrete and the clay beneath my feet

Begins to crumble

But love will never die

Because we'll see the mountains tumble

Before we say goodbye

My love and I will be

In love eternally

That's the way

Mmm, that's the way it's meant to be


All around

I see the purple shades of evening

And on the ground

The shadows fall and once again you're in my arms

So tenderly


The sidewalks in the street

The concrete and the clay beneath my feet

Begins to crumble

But love will never die

Because we'll see the mountains tumble

Before we say goodbye

My love and I will be

In love eternally

That's the way

Mmm, that's the way it's meant to be


The sidewalks in the street

The concrete and the clay beneath my feet

Begins to crumble

But love will never die

Because we'll see the mountains tumble

Before we say goodbye

My love and I will be

In love eternally

That's the way

Mmm, that's the way it's meant to be


And that's the way

That's the way it's meant to be


That's the way

That's the way it's meant to be

Whoa, that's the way

That's the way it's meant to be

Cliff Richard - The Minute You're Gone


The minute you're gone I cry

The minute you're gone I die

Before you walk out of sight

I'm like a child all alone at night


I stare into emptiness

I'm filled with such loneliness

The world goes from right to wrong

The minute you're gone


The minute you're gone I see

How lonely a man I'd be

My life would be oh so blue

If I couldn't be with you

The minute you're gone I'd pray

The minute you're gone I'd say

Please don't stay away too long

The minute you're gone


(The minute you're gone I'd see)

How lonely a man I'd be

(My life would be oh so blue)

If I couldn't be with you


The minute you're gone I'd pray

The minute you're gone I'd say

Please don't stay away too long

The minute you're gone



Jackie Trent - Where Are You Now My Love


When shadows of evening gently fall

The memory of you I soon recall

We walked in the rain

You kissed me, whispered my name


Where are you now my love

Where are you now my love


Life was fine, full of the wonder of the spring

You taught me that love meant everything

I gave you my heart, not dreaming we'd ever part


Where are you now my love

Where are you now my love


While I'm sitting here, I'm wondering what went wrong

You'll find your empty arms will tell you

You belong to me, you'll come to me

And see how I've been waiting everyday

Just hoping that you'll come back to stay

But I don't know when I'll ever see you again


Where are you now my love

Where are you now my love


La la la la la la la la la la la

La la la la la la la la la la la


The Beatles - Ticket To Ride


I think I'm gonna be sad,

I think it's today, yeh,

The girl that's driving me mad,

Is going away.


She's got a ticket to ride,

She's got a ticket to ri - hi - hide,

She's got a ticket to ride, but she don't care.


She said that living with me,

Is bringing her down yeh,

For she would never be free when I was around.


She's got a ticket to ride,

She's got a ticket to ri - hi - hide,

She's got a ticket to ride, but she don't care.


I don't know why she's riding so high,

She ought to think twice,

She ought to do right by me.


I think I'm gonna be sad,

I think it's today, yeh,

The girl that's driving me mad,

Is going away.


She's got a ticket to ride,

She's got a ticket to ri - hi - hide,

She's got a ticket to ride, but she don't care.


I don't know why she's riding so high,

She ought to think twice,

She ought to do right by me.


Before she gets to saying goodbye,

She ought to think twice,

She ought to do right by me.


She said that living with me,

Is bringing her down yeh,

For she would never be free when I was around.


She's got a ticket to ride,

She's got a ticket to ri - hi - hide,

She's got a ticket to ride, but she don't care.

My baby don't care, my baby don't care.

The Byrds - Mr Tambourine Man


Hey Mister Tambourine Man, play a song for me

I'm not sleepy and there ain't no place I'm goin' to

Hey Mister Tambourine Man, play a song for me

In the jingle jangle morning, I'll come followin' you


Take me for a trip upon your magic swirlin' ship

All my senses have been stripped

And my hands can't feel to grip

And my toes too numb to step

Wait only for my boot heels to be wanderin'


I'm ready to go anywhere I'm ready for to fade

On to my own parade cast your dancin' spell my way

I promise to go under it


Hey Mister Tambourine Man, play a song for me

I'm not sleepy and there ain't no place I'm goin' to

Hey Mister Tambourine Man, play a song for me

In the jingle jangle morning, I'll come followin' you


The Hollies - I'm Alive


Did you ever see a man with no heart

Baby that was me

Just a lowly lonely man with no heart

Till you set me free


Now I can breathe, I can see

I can touch, I can feel

I can taste all the sugar sweetness in your kiss

You give me all the things I've ever missed

I never felt like this

I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive


I used to think that I was living

Baby I was wrong

No I never knew a thing about living

Till you came along

Now I can breathe, I can see

I can touch, I can feel

I can taste all the sugar sweetness in your kiss

You give me all the things I've ever missed

I never felt like this

I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive


Now I can breathe, I can see

I can touch, I can feel

I can taste all the sugar sweetness in your kiss

You give me all the love I've ever missed

I never felt like this

I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive

I'm alive

I'm alive

The Beatles - Help


Help! I need somebody,

Help! Not just anybody,

Help! You know I need someone,

To help me!


When I was young, but so much younger than today,

I never needed anybody's help in any way,

But now these days are gone and I'm not so self assured,

Now I find I've changed my mind I've opened up the doors.


Help me if you can, I'm feeling down,

And I do appreciate you being around,

Help me get my feet back on the ground,

Won't you please please help me?


And now my life has changed in oh so many ways,

My independence seems to vanish in the haze,

But ev'ry now and then I feel so insecure,

I know that I just need you like I've never done before.


Help me if you can, I'm feeling down,

And I do appreciate you being around,

Help me get my feet back on the ground,

Won't you please please help me?


When I was young, but so much younger than today,

I never needed anybody's help in any way,

But now these days are gone and I'm not so self assured,

Now I find I've changed my mind I've opened up the doors.


Help me if you can, I'm feeling down,

And I do appreciate you being around,

Help me get my feet back on the ground,

Won't you please please help me?

Help me. Help me. Ooh, ooh, ooh!


Sonny & Cher - I Got You Babe


They say we're young and we don't know

Won't find out until we grow

Well I don't know if all that's true

'Cause you got me and baby I got you

Babe

I got you babe

I got you babe


They say our love won't pay the rent

Before it's earned our money's all been spent

I guess that's so, we don't have a pot

But at least I'm sure of all the things we got

Babe

I got you babe

I got you babe


I got flowers in the spring

I got you to wear my ring

And when I'm sad, you're a clown

And if I get scared, you're always around


Don't let them say your hair's too long

'Cause I don't care, with you I can't go wrong

Then put your little hand in mine

There ain't no hill or mountain we can't climb

Babe

I got you babe

I got you babe


I got you to hold my hand

I got you to understand

I got you to walk with me

I got you to talk with me

I got you to kiss goodnight

I got you to hold me tight

I got you, I won't let go

I got you to love me so


I got you babe


I got you babe

I got you babe

I got you babe

I got you babe

The Rolling Stones - Satisfaction


I can't get no satisfaction

I can't get no satisfaction

'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try

I can't get no, I can't get no


When I'm drivin' in my car, and the man come on the radio

He's tellin' me more and more about some useless information

Supposed to fire my imagination


I can't get no

Oh, no, no, no. Hey, hey, hey

That's what I say


I can't get no satisfaction

I can't get no satisfaction

'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try

I can't get no, I can't get no


When I'm watchin' my TV and a man comes on and tells me

How white my shirts can be

But, he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't smoke

The same cigarettes as me


I can't get no

Oh, no, no, no. Hey, hey, hey

That's what I say


I can't get no satisfaction, I can't get no girlie action

'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try

I can't get no, I can't get no


When I'm ridin' round the world

And I'm doin' this and I'm signin' that

And I'm tryin' to make some girl, who tells me

Baby, better come back, maybe next week

'Cause you see I'm on a losing streak

I can't get no

Oh, no, no, no. Hey, hey, hey

That's what I say

I can't get no, I can't get no

I can't get no, satisfaction

No satisfaction

No satisfaction, no satisfaction

I can't get no

The Walker Brothers - Make It Easy On Yourself


Oh, breaking up is so very hard to do


If you really love him

And there's nothing I can do

Don't try to spare my feelings

Just tell me that we're through


And make it easy on yourself

Make it easy on yourself

'Cause breaking up is so very hard to do


And if the way I hold you

Can't compare to his caress

No words of consolation

Will make me miss you less


My darling, if this is goodbye

I just know I'm gonna cry

So run to him

Before you start crying too


And make it easy on yourself

Make it easy on yourself

'Cause breaking up is so very hard to do

Oh baby, it's so hard to do


So make it easy on yourself

Make it easy on yourself

'Cause breaking up is so very hard to do



 The Beatles - We Can Work It Out


Try to see it my way,

Do I have to keep talking till I can't go on?

While you see it your way,

Run the risk of knowing that our love may soon be gone.


We can work it out.

We can work it out.


Think of what you're saying,

You can get it wrong and still you think that it's alright,

Think of what I'm saying,


We can work it out and get it straight, or say good-night.

We can work it out. We can work it out.


Life is very short, and there's no time,

For fussing and fighting, my friend,

I have always though that it's a crime,

So I will ask you once again.


Try to see it my way,

Only time will tell if I am right or I am wrong,

While you see your way,

There's a chance that we may fall apart before too long.


Life is very short, and there's no time,

While you see it your way,

There's a chance that we may fall apart before too long.

We can work it out. We can work it out.
