Hip To Hoo

She's the same - broken promises
Tryin' to make me out a fool, fool, fool
[Cheat, cheat, cheat - don't do it now]
In your game - you pick the players
Miscalculations make the rule, rule, rule

Ooh, yes, you're breaking my heart
You're breakin' my heart

So strange - and when it comes apart
You look and laugh and then you cry, cry, cry
[Cheat, cheat, cheat - don't do it now]
There's a change, withholding information
When I ask you, ask me why, why, why

Stop stop, stop stop, stop stop, stop hurtin' me baby
Stop again, stop again, stop again
Stop stop, stop stop, stop stop, stop hurtin' me baby
Stop again, stop again, stop again

[Cheat, cheat, cheat --]
Stop stop, stop stop, stop stop, stop hurtin' me baby
Stop again, stop again, stop again

So sweet, with your innocence
I've found the cutest step, so cute
[Cheat, cheat, cheat - don't do it now]
She's the same - broken promises
Tryin' to make me out a fool, fool, fool

You're breaking my heart, oh yeah --
Give it to me baby --
I really want to know --

IconKallalou Kallalou

Oh please don't go - no please don't go
No please don't go - you're breaking my heart again
How long, so long - who can tell me
Would I be wrong - very likely
So long's too long - I'll be on my own again
How fair is farewell? - fair to who?
No-one can tell - tell it true
Still in the stands - I'm back on my own again

[You're all I know - no story]
[You're all I know - please don't worry, don't worry]
Don't worry baby - don't cry no more

How fair is farewell? - fair to who?
No-one can tell - tell it true
Still in the stands - I'm back on my own again

So please don't go - no please don't go
No please don't go - you're breaking my heart again

[You're all I know - no story]
[You're all I know - please don't worry, don't worry]
Don't you want me

Old ties that bind - don't stop the wheeling
Too late to find - no-one is really
Locked on mine - back on my own again
Please don't go - no please don't go --
You're breaking my heart again

IconToo Loud

It's in the elevator - you can hear it in the hall
It's where you didn't want it - it's coming through the wall
Sneakin' in the bathroom, powdering your nose
Creeping in the johnny when you thought it didn't know
'Cause you're too loud, too loud, too loud
Yes you're too loud, too loud, too loud

Smile across the front page - watch the cover spread
Vanity's the video - an epic in your bed
Coke files, profiles - Johnny's in a spin
In the name of entertainment on the show that never ends
'Cause you're too loud, too loud, too loud
Yes you're too loud, too loud, too loud

Talk to them, Victor
[This time - that's right now]
[Hold tightly - that's right now --]

Staring at the ceiling - tired of counting sheep
Alone with indiscretion it's impossible to sleep
Rings on your fingers - bells on your toes
You're never there without it if you're ever there at all
'Cause you're too loud, too loud, too loud
Yes you're too loud, too loud, too loud

That's right now [followed by a spoken run-out]

IconTrouble Your Money

I had a dream last night - didn't come as a surprise
When I woke up wet with the moon in my eyes
Just the same old dream - like the one before
But this time I thought you were there for sure
Hot-blooded, red-handed by me
I don't know what I'm gonna do

So when I wake up - every night it's the same
Just lying there staring and confused yet again
I could swear now I do as I fumble in the dark
For the line or the light from the tear in my heart
It's here again - hot-blooded, heavy-headed, baby - looking for you
And here it comes again --

Now I will carry the torch - I will come with the flame
For the friend that I meet in my sleep with no name
Had a dream last night - didn't come as a surprise
When I woke up wet with the moon in my eyes
Here I am, here I am again, looking for you
And here it comes again --
Every night it's the same --

IconPink And Black

Hold me - hold me
I know I used to run around
Now I'm sure I'll settle down
Maybe what they say is true
All those times I had with you
People said that I won't change
The song will still remain the same
I know what you need and so
Hold me tight and don't let go
Don't start saying goodbye to me
Don't start saying goodbye to me

I owe you - hurt a thing or two
Love me truly - love me do
I only hope that I'm around
Well, that's just something downed
I don't think that lie is true
But I'll just leave that up to you
But I know what you need and so
Come on hold me tight - don't let go
Better stop saying goodbye breaking my heart
Don't start saying goodbye breaking my heart

When I tell you that I love
When I tell you that I care
When I tell you that I love you
When I tell you that anyway
When I tell you that - when I tell you that --
You know, you really wanna know

Will you try - remember me
What I've got is what you need
'Cause I know what you need and so
Hold me tight and don't let go
Stop saying goodbye breaking my heart
Stop saying goodbye breaking my heart --

IconLittle By Little

Little by little, my heart green
Little by little, I call your name
Little by little, my tears fall
Little by little, everything changes

Little by little, the time goes
Little by little, the days pass by
Little by little, the air clears
Little by little, I can breathe again
I can breathe again --

Back at the mirror - your good friend
Talk to the mirror, but play out your game
Sat in the middle, I stop then
Look at the winner, and the price you pay

Close the window - I tremble
Love was a fall that had no end
Now little by little - the air clears
Little by little, I can breathe again
I can breathe again --

I call your name - I call your name
I call your name - I call your name
Everything changes - everything changes
I call your name
I can breathe again --

IconDoo Doo A Do Do

Nobody can do the bop, like you do
Nobody can do the burn, like you do
Nobody can do the jerk, like you do
Oh, no, no
Come on - dance in the dark
You're looking so fine
Dance with me baby

Nobody can use what they've got, like you do
Because it's so hot - like you do
Teasing won't stop, won't stop you
No, no, no
Shake for me baby - let me be your lover man
Shake little girl, little girl

You stole my heart - nobody can do it so well

Would you think I'm a fool, a fool for you
A dirty old fool, a fool for you
You know I'm a fool, a fool for you
Oh, oh, oh
I'll be a fool for you darlin'
Ooh, movin' so fast
Your fool, little girl

You stole my heart - nobody can do it so well

Oh, it's a new kind of man - come on girl
Oh, it's a new kind of man - dancing by me again
Dance - do that burn now baby, dance
I'm feeling fine, fine --

Nobody can do the bop, like you do
Nobody can do the burn, like you do
Nobody can do the jerk, like you do
No, no, no
[Dance dance --]
You're body moves, your body moves so well
[Dance dance, mm-mm-mambo --]

IconEasily Lead

Please don't you do it to me no more
Don't you do it to me - I wouldn't do it to you
And don't you do it to me

The feeling's honest as I lie sleeping with burning desire
Trying to be nice and all in keeping - lying on my fire
Oh, she's so professional - she's so professional
She's just as cool as ice, and every time she smiles
She is so professional, so professional

She's so professional - she's just as cool as ice
Every time she smiles - you know it's rather nice
She needs a confidante - you tell her you're the one
With the mouth that smiles, and then she has to leave
Never satisfied, as I light up my fire
She is so professional, so professional

Wouldn't do it to you - so don't you do it to me

Playing with me like you do - it's okay
You only want me when you want to - but it's alright
About time I got the answer - I'll pay
Now I find I finally lost my reason, tonight

I wouldn't do it to you, so why you do it to me
I wouldn't do it to you
Paying the price of love is cheaper - I'm not the only buyer
Sugar and spice a choice of sweetenin' takes him to acquire
Oh, she's so professional, so professional
It's just a change of pace - it's just a change of way

Playing with me like you do [etc repeated]

You twist me this way and that way, and I don't know
Which way that you want me to go
Come on babe - what do you want me to do?
Come on baby - don't you be untrue
Been loving you far too long
I don't know where my love has gone
Ain't paying the price no more
I ain't paying the price no more
You're the only, only, only girl in my dreams - I love you
I've been lonely, lonely, lonely so long now
I've been waiting for you - I love you --

IconSixes and Sevens

Sundown - another busy day watching the time fly
Old ground standing in the way, and I don't know why
'Cause here I am making changes
Alterations in my house of cards
But I've a whole new arrangement
Am I at home, am I at home, am I?

Look down - almost with my baby as the time flies
I found I've lost an invitation - I don't know why
I'm so behind in my repayments
This whole beration must be overdue
But I'm at sixes with the statements
Am I at six, am I at six, am I?

Another twist of fortune - it wasn't in the plan
A new design for living - to do the best I can
To do the best I can - to do the best I can

Sometimes I nearly always do, but then I'm with you
Each time it comes as a surprise that they should do
Another drain on my resources
Information's getting out of hand
And I'm at home with all the courses
Am I at home, am I at home, am I, am I, am I?
