Parlez Vous 03:42
I don’t even know your name, will I ever be the same As I trace your steps, along old streets and down the silent lanes Days turned into nights, oh the nights turned into days Lost in you, lost in love, in that quiet French cafe Parlez vous Parlez vous I love you Oh the Empty streets have turned to stone Shutters closed, flowers gone One by one leaves have fallen, come back thief my heart you’ve stolen The softness of your lips, as you touched my finger tips As I sit here all alone, all at sea, lost in you loving me Parlez vous Parlez vous I love you Were you just an apparition in that quiet French Café? Was it in your plan, when you held my hand to make me want to stay? Parlez vous Parlez vous I love you Oh the gypsy vendors have no wares, lonely tables, lonely chairs The sky has turned the dullest grey Music stopped, birds flown away I’ll post this note on our cafe door Look for you forever more One by one the leaves have fallen, come back thief my heart you’ve stolen Parlez vous Parlez vous I love you Parlez vous Parlez vous I love you Parlez vous Parlez vous I love you

Sitting here on the windowsill, watching the world go by Fate did a u-turn, oh I’m wondering why Turn off the moon and the sun, put out the stars one by one Leave me to view, the lonely memory of you A caravan of thinking, won’t ever change the news, Fate did a u turn, nothing that I can do You left without a kiss, now it’s your lips and your kiss I miss All I can do, is dance in the shadow of you Stop the clock, shut down the phone, Dim the lights leave me alone Nothing left to do, but to dance in the shadow of you The sound of the city, goes on outside Silence the living, leave me to cry Burn the bridges, de-rail the trains Close the roads and ground the planes Leave me to be, alone in this tragedy A caravan of thinking, won’t ever change the news, Fate did a u turn, nothing that I can do You left without a kiss, now it’s your lips and your kiss I miss All I can do, is dance in the shadow of you

Pan Am Girl 04:02
Pan Am Girl come fly with me I’ll meet you 50 thousand feet above the sea As I sit here and watch your show, Oh help me please where does my seatbelt go? The way you pour those drinks, you sexy foxy minx In row 30 D, that’s where you’ll find me, My Pan Am Girl just you and me We’ll fly the world just wait and see Pan Am Girl come fly with me Pan Am Girl the only way to fly In your care I’m such a lucky guy Beneath the moon and starry constellation Let’s make love our only destination In your hat and coat above the clouds we’ll float Are we in heaven on this 747 My Pan Am Girl just you and me We’ll fly the world just wait and see Pan Am Girl come fly with me

Peoney Blue 02:56
Peony Blue put my heart in danger, stranger. Beautiful you, put your self away. You make me fumble with fear every time you walk near. So won’t you please go away? Peony Blue put my heart in danger, stranger. Beautiful you, put your self away. Punch drunk in love, heart break in bloom Oh won’t you please stay on the other side of the room. Peony Blue put my heart in spring time big time Beautiful you put your self away You make me bashful and shy every time you walk by Won’t you please stay away? Peony Blue put my heart in danger stranger Beautiful you, put yourself away. Your eyes, mesmerize, dispense with the doom. Oh won't you please stay on the other side of the room

Moonbeams 03:41
Here I go again, chasing moonbeams, trying to catch a carnival in the sky, You’re marvellous, no doubt about it, with that twinkle in your eye. Here I go again, chasing moonbeams, trying to catch a carnival in the sky, I’m always in the race; I never win a place, what kind of fool am I? I’ll conjure in my dreams, a fancy flying machine, to catch a glimpse of you, Aladdin’s magic lamp, a genie just to dance, to ever have a chance of loving you, Here I go again, chasing moonbeams, trying to catch a carnival in the sky, I’m always in the race; I never win a place, what kind of fool am I?

Big Bad Mama 04:19
Big bad mama, big bad mama you are, Big bad mama, big bad mama you are, You’re bold, you’re bad, Best damn woman, a man ever had. You're practical as a garden gate, Never fancy and you’re never late, Social comment, does more for you, Than little dogs in handbags and Prada shoes, No time for nonsense, no nonsense ways, No time for fools or wasted days, Like a century, you're so precise, You’re standing in your gumboots, You're naughty but nice. You’re as safe as a port in a storm, Your hands are cold, your heart is warm, Bring on a roast, a bottle of red, Kick off your sensibles and bounce around the bed.

Bang Bang 03:19
An impostor, you’re a fake, you’re a brown-eyed carpet snake Take your boots from under my bed, you’ve been kissing him instead Life can be so much fun, baby I just got me a gun I’m gonna have to shoot you in the head, bang bang baby you’re dead I won’t get mad I’ll get even, with your lying and deceiving You stole my heart under false pretences, now I’ve come to my senses Take your boots from under my bed, you’ve been kissing him instead I’m gonna have to shoot you in the head, bang bang baby you’re dead An imposter, you’re a fraud, your secret plans are flawed You think you're high society, fancy pants impropriety I won’t get mad, Ill just get even, with your cheating and your thieving I’m gonna have to shoot you in the head, bang bang baby you’re dead Bang bang baby you’re dead, now baby baby……

Swinging kitten did me in, The way you move, the way you swing, Oh bounce my bells or make them ring, That Swinging Kitten did me in. Float my boat, flip flop fly, Catch me quick, you cutie pie, Fluff me up, fluff me down, Blow my feathers all over town. Now you’ve caught this astronaught, Send me to the moon, Zoom zoom zoom, I’m in a spin, This kitten’s done me in. Swinging Kitten did me in, The way you move, the way you swing, Bounce my bells or make them ring, That Swinging Kitten did me in.

If bedlam was a station, seems I caught the early train Well a lunatic asylum, just moved into my brain If lunacy’s a bus stop, I took the ride The saints of sanity lied You make me crazy baby putting up with your ballyhoo Oh you make me crazy baby, folly of you Well I’m not short changed Just quite deranged over you A catalyst for chaos, you send me off the tracks You’re a planetory mess, get me some sensibility back With your madhouse ways and your reckless days I’m not short changed, just quite deranged If bedlam was a station, seems I caught the early train Well a lunatic asylum, just moved into my brain If lunacy’s a bus stop, I took the ride The saints of sanity lied A catalyst for chaos, you send me off the tracks You’re a planetory mess, get me some sensibility back With your madhouse ways and your reckless days I’m not short changed, just quite deranged If bedlam was a station, seems I caught the early train Well a lunatic asylum, just moved into my brain If lunacy’s a bus stop, I took the ride The saints of sanity lied

Wonderland 04:16
Fell down a rabbit hole one morning, No sign, no warning, Cats that can talk, Fish that can walk, In Alice's Wonderland. Eat me, drink me, the bottle said, Now take a look at the state of my head, I’m in Alice’s Wonderland. Boop boopy dooby, Boop boopy dooby do Boop boopy dooby do Boop boopy dooby, Boop boopy dooby do Boop boopy dooby do Flying teacups in the air, Cards and chess sets if you dare, Wonderland has a curious view, but don’t be fooled, there’s room for two, In Alice’s wonderland. Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee, Sat to have a chat with me, In Alice’s wonderland. Boop boopy dooby, Boop boopy dooby do Boop boopy dooby do Boop boopy dooby, Boop boopy dooby do Boop boopy dooby do In the end what does it matter, Just ask the old mad hatter, Let me make it perfectly clear, We’re absolutely made around here, In Alice’s wonderland. Wonderland has a curious view, but don’t be fooled cos there’s room for two, In Alice’s wonderland, Alice’s wonderland
