The Dave Clark Five - Glad All Over


You say that you love me (say you love me)

All of the time (all of the time)

You say that you need me (say you need me)

You'll always be mine (always be mine)


I'm feelin' glad all over

Yes I'm-a glad all over

Baby I'm glad all over

So glad you're mine


I'll make you happy (make you happy)

You'll never be blue (never be blue)

You'll have no sorrow (have no sorrow)

'Cause I'll always be true (always be true)


And I'm feelin' glad all over

Yes I'm-a glad all over

Baby I'm-a glad all over

So glad you're mine


Other girls may try to take me away (take me away)

But you know, it's by your side I will stay

I'll stay


Our love will last now (our love will last)

Till the end of time (end of time)

Because this love now (because this love)

Is only yours and mine (yours and mine)


And I'm feelin' glad all over

Yes I'm-a glad all over

Baby I'm glad all over

So glad you're mine


Other girls may try to take me away (take me away)

But you know, it's by your side I will stay

I'll stay


Our love will last now (our love will last)

Till the end of time (end of time)

Because this love now (because this love)

Is only yours and mine (yours and mine)


And I'm feelin' glad all over

Yes I'm-a glad all over

Baby I'm-a glad all over

So glad you're mine


I'm so glad you're mine now

I'm so, I'm so glad you're mine

I'm-a so glad you're mine now

Whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa

The Searchers - Needles And Pins


I saw her today, I saw her face

It was the face I loved and I knew

I had to run away and get down on my knees and pray

That they'd go away


But still they begin

Needles and pins

Because of all my pride

The tears I gotta hide


Hey, I thought I was smart, I wanted her

Didn't think I'd do, but now I see

She's worse to him than me

Let her go ahead, take his love instead

And one day she will see

Just how to say please

And get down on her knees

Yeah, that's how it begins

She'll feel those needles and pins

Hurtin' her, hurtin' her


Why can't I stop and tell myself I'm wrong, I'm wrong, so wrong

Why can't I stand up and tell myself I'm strong


Because I saw her today, I saw her face

It was the face I loved and I knew

I had to run away and get down on my knees and pray

That they'd go away


But still they begin

Needles and pins

Because of all my pride

The tears I gotta hide

Ah, needles and pins

Needles and pins

Needles and pins

The Bachelors - Diane


Smile for me, my Diane


I'm in heaven when I see you smile

Smile for me, my Diane

And though ev'rything's dark all the while

I can see you, Diane


You have lighted the road leading home

Pray for me when you can

But no matter wherever I roam

Smile for me, my Diane


I'm in heaven when I see you smile

Smile for me, my Diane

And though ev'rything's dark all the while

I can see you, Diane


You have lighted the road leading home

Pray for me when you can

But no matter wherever I roam

Smile for me, my Diane

Cilla Black - Anyone Who Had A Heart


Anyone who ever loved could look at me

And know that I love you

Anyone who ever dreamed could look at me

And know I dream of you

Knowing I love you, so


Anyone who had a heart

Would take me in his arms and love me, too

You couldn't be another heart that hurt me,

Like you hurt me and be so untrue

What am I to do


Every time you go away, I always say

This time it's goodbye, dear

Loving you the way I do

I take you back, without you I'd die dear

Knowing I love you, so


Anyone who had a heart

Would take me in his arms and love me, too

You couldn't be another heart that hurt me,

Like you hurt me and be so untrue

What am I to do


Knowing I love you, so


Anyone who had a heart

Would take me in his arms and love me, too

You couldn't be another heart that hurt me,

Like you hurt me and be so untrue

Anyone who had a heart would love me too

Anyone who had a heart would simply take me

In his arms and always love me

Why won't you, yeah

Anyone who had a heart would love me too

Anyone who had a heart would simply take me

In his arms and always love me

Why won't you

Billy J Kramer & The Dakotas - Little Children


Little children, you better not tell on me

I'm tellin' you

Little children, you better not tell what you see

And if you're good

I'll give you candy and a quarter

If you're quiet like you oughta be

And keep a secret with me


I wish they would go away

Little children, now why aren't you playin' outside

I'm askin' you

You can't fool me, 'cause I'm gonna know if you hide

And try to peek

I'm gonna treat you to a movie

Stop your gigglin', children do be nice

Like little sugars and spice


You saw me kissin' your sister

You saw me holdin' her hand

But if you snitch to your mother

Your father won't understand


I wish they would take a nap

Little children, now why don't you go bye-bye

Go anywhere at all

Little children, I know you would if you tried

Go up the stairs

Me and your sister, we're goin' steady

How can I kiss her when I'm ready to

With little children like you around

I wonder what can I do around

Little children like you



The Beatles - Can't Buy Me Love


Can't buy me love, love,

Can't buy me love.


I'll buy you a diamond ring my friend,

If it makes you feel alright,

I'll get you anything my friend,

If it makes you feel alright,

'Cause I don't care too much for money,

Money can't buy me love.


I'll give you all I've got to give,

If you say you love me too,

I may not have a lot to give,

But what I've got I'll give to you,

I don't care too much for money.

Money can't buy me love.


Can't buy me love, ev'rybody tells me so,

Can't buy me love, no, no, no, no.


Say you don't need no diamond rings,

And I'll be satisfied,

Tell me that you want the kind of things,

That money just can't buy,

I don't care too much for money.

Money can't buy me love.


Can't buy me love, ev'rybody tells me so,

Can't buy me love, no, no, no, no.


Say you don't need no diamond rings,

And I'll be satisfied,

Tell me that you want the kind of things,

That money just can't buy,

I don't care too much for money.

Money can't buy me love.


Can't buy me love, love,

Can't buy me love.


Peter & Gordon - A World Without Love


Please lock me away

And don't allow the day

Here inside, where I hide with my loneliness

I don't care what they say, I won't stay

In a world without love


Birds sing out of tune

And rain clouds hide the moon

I'm OK, here I'll stay with my loneliness

I don't care what they say, I won't stay

In a world without love


So I wait, and in a while

I will see my true love smile

She may come, I know not when

When she does, I'll lose

So baby until then

Lock me away

And don't allow the day

Here inside, where I hide with my loneliness

I don't care what they say, I won't stay

In a world without love


So I wait, and in a while

I will see my true love smile

She may come, I know not when

When she does, I'll lose

So baby until then

Lock me away

And don't allow the day

Here inside, where I hide with my loneliness

I don't care what they say, I won't stay

In a world without love


I don't care what they say, I won't stay

In a world without love



The Searchers - Don't Throw Your Love Away


Don't throw your love away, no, no, no, no

Don't throw your love away

For you might need it someday


Don't throw your dreams away, no, no, no, no

Keep them another day

For you might need them someday


Lovers of today just throw their dreams away

And play at love

They give their love away

To anyone who'll say I love you


Don't throw your love away, no, no, no, no

Don't throw your love away

For you might need it someday


Lovers of today just throw their dreams away

And play at love

They give their love away

To anyone who'll say I love you


Go out and have your fun

You better have your fun with anyone

But don't throw your love away


Don't throw your love away, no, no, no, no

Don't throw your love away

For you might need it someday


Don't throw your love away, no, no, no, no

Don't throw your love away, yay


The Four Pennies - Juliet


There was a love, I knew before

She broke my heart, left me unsure

Juliet

Don't forget

The promise you made

I need never be afraid

Things you do, reminiscent of you

Juliet

When we met

You gave me a sweet memory

Things you do, reminiscent of you


There was a love, I knew before

She broke my heart, left me unsure

Juliet

Don't you, no don't you let

Our love go astray in this way

Julie, Julie

Julie, Julie, oh my juliet

Julie, Julie, oh my juliet


Cilla Black - You're My World


You‘re my world, you‘re every breath I take

You‘re my world, you're every move I make

Other eyes see the stars up in the skies

But for me they shine within your eyes


As the trees reach for the sun above

So my arms reach out to you for love

With your hand resting in mine

I feel a power so divine


You‘re my world, you are my night and day

You‘re my world, you‘re every prayer I pray

If our love ceases to be

Then it‘s the end of my world for me


With your hand resting in mine

I feel a power so divine


You're my world, you are my night and day

You're my world, you're every prayer I pray

If our love ceases to be

Then it's the end of my world

End of my world

End of my world for me



Roy Orbison - It's Over


Your baby doesn’t love you anymore


Golden days before they end

Whisper secrets to the wind

Your baby won’t be near you anymore


Tender nights before they fly

Send falling stars that seem to cry

Your baby doesn’t want you anymore, it’s over


It breaks your heart in two

To know she’s been untrue

But, oh, what will you do

When she says to you there‘s someone new

We’re through, we’re through


It’s over, it’s over, it’s over


All the rainbows in the sky

Start to weep then say goodbye

You won’t be seeing rainbows anymore


Setting suns before they fall

Echo to you that’s all, that’s all

But you’ll see lonely sunsets after all


It’s over, it’s over, it’s over

It’s over

The Animals - House Of The Rising Sun


There is a house in New Orleans

They call the 'Rising Sun'

And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy

And, God, I know I'm one


My mother was a tailor

Sewed my new blue jeans

My father was a gamblin' man

Down in New Orleans


Now the only thing a gambler needs

Is a suitcase and a trunk

And the only time he's satisfied

Is when he's on a drunk


Oh, Mother tell your children

Not to do what I have done

Spend your lives in sin and misery

In the House of the Rising Sun


Well I got one foot on the platform

The other foot on the train

I'm going back to New Orleans

To wear that ball and chain


Well there is a house in New Orleans

They call the 'Rising Sun'

And its been the ruin of many a poor boy

And God, I know, I'm one


The Beatles - A Hard Day's Night


It's been a hard day's night,

And I've been working like a dog,

It's been a hard day's night,

I should be sleeping like a log,

But when I get home to you,

I find the things that you do,

Will make me feel alright.


You know I work all day,

To get you money to buy you things,

And it's worth it just to hear you say,

You're gonna give me ev'rything,

So why on earth should I moan,

'Cos when I get you alone,

You know I feel okay.


When I'm home ev'rything seems to be right,

When I'm home feeling you holding me

Tight, tight, yeh.


It's been a hard day's night,

And I've been working like a dog,

It's been a hard day's night,

I should be sleeping like a log,

But when I get home to you,

I find the things that you do,

Will make me feel alright.


You know I work all day,

To get you money to buy you things,

And it's worth it just to hear you say,

You're gonna give me ev'rything,

So why on earth should I moan,

'Cos when I get you alone,

You know I feel okay.


When I'm home ev'rything seems to be right,

When I'm home feeling you holding me

Tight, tight, yeh.


It's been a hard day's night,

And I've been working like a dog,

It's been a hard day's night,

I should be sleeping like a log,

But when I get home to you,

I find the things that you do,

Will make me feel alright.

The Rolling Stones - It's All Over Now


Well, baby used to stay out all night long

She made me cry, she done me wrong

She hurt my eyes open, that's no lie

Tables turn and now her turn to cry


Because I used to love her

But it's all over now

Because I used to love her

But it's all over now


Well, she used to run around with every man in town

She spent all my money, playing her high class game

She put me out, it was a pity how I cried

Tables turn and now her turn to cry


Because I used to love her

But it's all over now

Because I used to love her

But it's all over now


Well, I used to wake in the morning, get my breakfast in bed

When I'd gotten worried she'd ease my aching head

But now she's here and there, with every man in town

Still trying to take me for that same old clown


Because I used to love her

But it's all over now

Because I used to love her

But it's all over now

Because I used to love her

But it's all over now

Because I used to love her

But it's all over now

There's somethin' special on my mind

Last night I met a new girl in the neighbourhood, whoa yeah

Somethin' tells me I'm into something good

She's the kind of girl who's not too shy

And I can tell I'm her kind of guy

She danced close to me like I hoped she would

But then she stuck close to me the whole night through

Can I be fallin' in love

(She's everthing I've been dreamin' of)

(She's everthing I've been dreamin' of)

Sandie Shaw - There's Always Something There To Remind Me


I walk alone the city streets you used to walk along with me

And every step I take recalls how much in love we used to be

Oh, how can I forget you

When there is always something there to remind me

Always something there to remind me

I was born to love you, and I will never be free

You'll always be a part of me


When shadows fall, I pass a small cafe where we would dance at night

And I can't help recalling how it how it felt to kiss and hold you tight

Oh how can I forget you

When there is always something there to remind me

Always something there to remind me

I was born to love you, and I will never be free

You'll always be a part of me


If you should find you miss the sweet and tender love we used to share

Just come back to the places where we used to go, and I'll be there

Oh, how can I forget you

When there is always something there to remind me

Always something there to remind me

I was born to love you, and I will never be free

When there is always something there to remind me

Always something there to remind me

Always something there to remind me

The Supremes - Baby Love


Ooh baby love, my baby love

I need you, oh how I need you

But all you do is treat me bad

Break my heart and leave me sad

Tell me, what did I do wrong

To make you stay away so long


'Cause baby love, my baby love

Been missing ya, miss kissing ya

Instead of breaking up

Let's do some kissing and making up

Don't throw our love away

In my arms why don't you stay

Need ya, need ya

Baby love, ooh, baby love


Baby love, my baby love

Why must we seperate, my love

All of my whole life through

I never loved no one but you

Why you do me like you do

I get this need


Ooh, ooh, need to hold you

Once again, my love

Feel your warm embrace, my love

Don't throw our love away

Please don't do me this way

Not happy like I used to be

Loneliness has got the best of me

My love, my baby love


I need you, oh how I need you

Why you do me like you do

After I've been true to you

So deep in love with you


Baby, baby, ooh 'til it's hurtin' me

'Til it's hurtin' me

Ooh, baby love

Don't throw our love away

Don't throw our love away..


The Beatles - I Feel Fine


Baby's good to me, you know,

She's happy as can be, you know,

She said so.

I'm in love with her and I feel fine.


Baby says she's mine you know,

She tells me all the time you know,

She said so.

I'm in love with her and I feel fine.


I'm so glad that she's my little girl,

She's so glad she's telling all the world,


That her baby buys her things you know,

He buys her diamond rings you know,

She said so.

She's in love with me and I feel fine.


I'm so glad that she's my little girl,

She's so glad she's telling all the world,


That her baby buys her things you know,

He buys her diamond rings you know,

She said so.

She's in love with me and I feel fine.




The Rolling Stones - Little Red Rooster


I am the little red rooster

Too lazy to crow for day

I am the little red rooster

Too lazy to crow for day

Keep everything in the farmyard

Upset in every way


The dogs begin to bark

Hounds begin to howl

Dogs begin to bark

Hounds begin to howl

Watch out strange cat because

Little red rooster´s on the prowl


If ya see my little red rooster

Please drive him home

If ya see my little red rooster

Please drive him home

Ain´t had no peace in the farmyard

Since my little red rooster's been gone
