The Beach Boys - Good Vibrations


I, I love the colourful clothes she wears

And the way the sunlight plays upon her hair

I hear the sound of a gentle word

On the wind that lifts her perfume through the air


I'm pickin' up good vibrations

She's giving me excitations

I'm pickin' up good vibrations

(Oom bop bop good vibrations)

She's giving me excitations

(Oom bop bop excitations)

Good good good good vibrations

(Oom bop bop)

She's giving me excitations

(Oom bop bop excitations)

Good good good good vibrations

(Oom bop bop)

She's giving me excitations

(Oom bop bop excitations)


Close my eyes

She's somehow closer now

Softly smile, I know she must be kind

When I look in her eyes

She goes with me to a blossom world


I'm pickin' up good vibrations

She's giving me excitations

I'm pickin' up good vibrations

(Oom bop bop good vibrations)

She's giving me excitations

(Oom bop bop excitations)

Good good good good vibrations

(Oom bop bop)

She's giving me excitations

(Oom bop bop excitations)

Good good good good vibrations

(Oom bop bop)

She's giving me excitations

(Oom bop bop excitations)


(Ahhhhhhh)

(Ah my my what elation)

I don't know where but she sends me there

(Ah my my what a sensation)

(Ah my my what elations)

(Ah my my what)


Gotta keep those lovin' good vibrations

A happenin' with her

Gotta keep those lovin' good vibrations

A happenin' with her

Gotta keep those lovin' good vibrations

A happenin'


Ahhhhhhhh

Good good good good vibrations

(Oom bop bop)

(I'm pickin' up good vibrations)

She's giving me excitations

(Oom bop bop)

(Excitations)

Good good good good vibrations

(Oom bop bop)

She's na na . . .


Na na na na na

Na na na

Na na na na na

Na na na

Do do do do do

Petula Clark - This Is My Song


Why is my heart so light

Why are the stars so bright

Why is the sky so blue

Since the hour I met you


Flowers are smiling bright

Smiling for our delight

Smiling so tenderly

For all the world, you and me


I know why the world is smiling

Smiling so tenderly

It hears the same old story

Through all eternity


Love, this is my song

Here is a song, a serenade to you

The world cannot be wrong

If in this world there is you


I care not what the world may say

Without your love there is no day

So, love, this is my song

Here is a song, a serenade to you


I care not what the world may say

Without your love there is no day

So, love, this is my song

Here is a song, a serenade to you



Englebert Humperdinck - Release Me


Please release me, let me go

For I don't love you anymore

To waste our lives would be a sin

Release me and let me love again


I have found a new love, dear

And I will always want her near

Her lips are warm while yours are cold

Release me, my darling, let me go


(Please release me, let me go)

For I don't love you anymore

(To waste my life would be a sin)

So release me and let me love again


Please release me, can't you see

You'd be a fool to cling to me

To live a lie would bring us pain

So release me and let me love again

(Let me love, let me love)


The Beatles - Hello Goodbye


You say yes, I say no

You say stop, and I say go, go, go

Oh no

You say goodbye, and I say hello, hello, hello

I don't know why you say goodbye

I say hello, hello, hello

I don't know why you say goodbye

I say hello


I say high, you say low

You say why, and I say I don't know

Oh no

You say goodbye, and I say hello, hello, hello

I don't know why you say goodbye

I say hello, hello, hello

I don't know why you say goodbye

I say hello


(why why why why why why) Do you say

Goodbye, goodbye (bye bye bye bye bye bye)

Oh, no

You say goodbye, and I say hello, hello, hello

I don't know why you say goodbye

I say hello, hello, hello

I don't know why you say goodbye

I say hello


You say yes, I say no

You say stop, and I say go, go, go

Ohhhh Oh, no

You say goodbye, and I say hello, hello, hello

I don't know why you say goodbye

I say hello, hello, hello

I don't know why you say goodbye

I say hello, hello, hello

I don't know why you say goodbye

I say hello, hello


Hela, hey helloa

Hela, hey helloa...

Frank & Nancy Sinatra - Somethin' Stupid


I know I stand in line, until you think you have the time

To spend an evening with me

And if we go someplace to dance, I know that there's a chance

You won't be leaving with me


And afterwards we drop into a quiet little place

And have a drink or two

And then I go and spoil it all, by saying something stupid

Like I love you


I can see it in your eyes, that you despise the same old lies

You heard the night before

And though it's just a line to you, for me it's true

It never seemed so right before


I practice every day to find some clever lines to say

To make the meaning come through

But then I think I'll wait until the evening gets late

And I'm alone with you


The time is right your perfume fills my head, the stars get red

And oh the night's so blue

And then I go and spoil it all, by saying something stupid

Like I love you


The time is right your perfume fills my head, the stars get red

And oh the night's so blue

And then I go and spoil it all, by saying something stupid

Like I love you

I love you

I love you

I love you


Sandie Shaw - Puppet On A String


I wonder if one day that, you'll say that, you care

If you say you love me madly I'll gladly be there

Like a puppet on a string


Love is just like a merry-go-round

With all the fun of the fair

One day I'm feeling down on the ground

Then I'm up in the air

Are you leading me on

Tomorrow will you be gone


I wonder if one day that, you'll say that, you care

If you say you love me madly I'll gladly be there

Like a puppet on a string


I may win on the round-a-bout

Then I'll lose on the swings

In or out there is never a doubt

Just who's pulling the strings

I'm all tied up in you

But where's it leading me to


I wonder if one day that, you'll say that, you care

If you say you love me madly I'll gladly be there

Like a puppet on a string


I wonder if one day that, you'll say that, you care

If you say you love me madly I'll gladly be there

Like a puppet on a string

Like a puppet on a string

The Tremeloes - Silence Is Golden


Oh, don't it hurt deep inside

To see someone do something to her

Oh, don't it pain to see someone cry

Oh, especially when someone is her


Silence is golden, but my eyes still see

Silence is golden, golden

But my eyes still see


Talking is cheap, people follow like sheep

Even though there is nowhere to go

How could she tell, he deceived her so well

Pity, she'll be the last one to know


Silence is golden, but my eyes still see

Silence is golden, golden

But my eyes still see


How many times will she fall for his line

Should I tell her or should I keep cool

And if I tried, I know she'll say I lied

Mind your business, don't hurt her, you fool


Silence is golden, but my eyes still see

Silence is golden, golden

But my eyes still see

But my eyes still see

But my eyes still see



Procol Harum - A Whiter Shade Of Pale


We skipped the light fandango

Turned cartwheels 'cross the floor

I was feeling kinda seasick

But the crowd called out for more

The room was humming harder

As the ceiling flew away

When we called out for another drink

The waiter brought a tray


And so it was that later

As the miller told his tale

That her face, at first just ghostly

Turned a whiter shade of pale


She said, There is no reason

And the truth is plain to see

But I wandered through my playing cards

And would not let her be

One of sixteen vestal virgins

Who were leaving for the coast

And although my eyes were open

They might have just as well've been closed


And so it was that later

As the miller told his tale

That her face, at first just ghostly

Turned a whiter shade of pale


And so it was that later

As the miller told his tale

That her face, at first just ghostly

Turned a whiter shade of pale



Scott McKenzie - San Francisco


If you're going to San Francisco

Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair

If you're going to San Francisco

You're gonna meet some gentle people there


For those who come to San Francisco

Summertime will be a love-in there

In the streets of San Francisco

Gentle people with flowers in their hair


All across the nation such a strange vibration

People in motion

There's a whole generation with a new explanation

People in motion, people in motion


For those who come to San Francisco

Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair

If you come to San Francisco

Summertime will be a love-in there


If you come to San Francisco

Summertime will be a love-in there


The Beatles - All You Need Is Love


Love, love love

Love, love love

Love, love love

There's nothing you can do that can't be done

Nothing you can sing that can't be sung

Nothing you can say

But you can learn how to play the game

It's easy


Nothing you can make that can't be made

No one you can save that can't be saved

Nothing you can do

But you can learn how to be you in time

It's easy


All you need is love

All you need is love

All you need is love, love

Love is all you need


All you need is love

All you need is love

All you need is love, love

Love is all you need


There's nothing you can know that isn't known

Nothing you can see that isn't shown

Nowhere you can be

That isn't where you're meant to be

It's easy


All you need is love

All you need is love

All you need is love, love

Love is all you need


All you need is love

(All together now)

All you need is love

(Everybody)

All you need is love, love

Love is all you need


Love is all you need

(Love is all you need)

Love is all you need

(Love is all you need)

Love is all you need

(Love is all you need)

Love is all you need

(Love is all you need)


She loves you yeah yeah yeah

Long John Baldry - Let The Heartaches Begin


I can hear the guitars start to play

And very soon they say

I was a fool to turn my love away

And with each glass of wine I feel a glow

And very soon I know

I was a fool to let my baby go


So let the heartaches begin

I can't help it, I can't win

I've lost that girl for sure

Tears won't help anymore

Yes let the heartaches begin

I can't help it, I can't win

I've lost that girl for sure

Now she's gone

I can't hold back the tears anymore


I can see the couples dancin' through the night

They hold each other tight

As they dance of love till the morning light

The soft embraces that they seem to share

Just make me feel aware

Of the lonliness I find so hard to bear


So let the heartaches begin

I can't help it, I can't win

I've lost that girl for sure

My tears won't help anymore

Yes let the heartaches, heartaches begin

I just can't help it,you know that I just can't win

I've lost that girl for sure

And now that she's gone

I can't hold back the tears anymore

Englebert Humperdinck - The Last Waltz


I wondered should I go, or should I stay

The band had only one more song to play

And then I saw you out the corner of my eye

A little girl alone and so shy


I had the last waltz with you

Two lonely people together

I fell in love with you

The last waltz should last forever


But the love we had was goin' strong

Through the good and bad we'd get along

And then the flame of love died in your eye

My heart was broke in two when you said goodbye


I had the last waltz with you

Two lonely people together

I fell in love with you

The last waltz should last forever

It's all over now

Nothing left to say

Just my tears and the orchestra playing

La la la la la la la la la

La la la la la la la la la la

I had the last waltz with you

Two lonely people together

I fell in love with you

The last waltz should last forever

La la la la la la la la la

The Bee Gees - Massachusetts


Feel I'm goin' back to Massachusetts

Something's telling me I must go home

And the lights all went down in Massachusetts

The day I left her standing on her own


Tried to hitch a ride to San Francisco

Gotta do the things I wanna do

And the lights all went down in Massachusetts

They brought me back to see my way with you


Talk about the life in Massachusetts

Speak about the people I have seen

And the lights all went down in Massachusetts

And Massachusetts is one place I have seen


I will remember Massachusetts

I will remember Massachusetts

I will remember Massachusetts


The Foundations - Baby Now That I've Found You


Baby, now that I've found you

I can't let you go

I'll build my world around you

I need you so

Baby, even though you don't need me

You don't need me


Baby, now that I've found you

I can't let you go

I'll build my world around you

I need you so

Baby, even though you don't need me

You don't need me


Baby, baby, since first we met

I knew in this heart of mine (I wanna tell you)

The love we had could not be bad

Play it right and bide my time


Spent a lifetime looking for somebody

To give me love like you

Now you've told me that you wanna leave me

Darling, I just can't let you


Baby, now that I've found you

I can't let you go

I'll build my world around you

I need you so

Baby, even though you don't need me

You don't need me

Baby, now that I've found you

I can't let you go

I'll build my world around you

I need you so

Baby, even though you don't need me

You don't need me


Spent a lifetime looking for somebody

To give me love like you

Now you've told me that you wanna leave me

Darling, I just can't let you


Baby, now that I've found you

I can't let you go

I'll build my world around you

I need you so

Baby, even though you don't need me

You don't need me


Baby, now that I've found you

I can't let you go
