1000 Years

I can't wait to say all the things I want to say
You don't help at all, thinking I am just a fool
But one has changed and one remains, going on

Even if it takes a thousand years or more
Even if we cried a thousand tears, I'm sure
We'd still want more and more

Just the other day taking love you won't repay
Where's the give and take? Tell me why the sudden heartache?
The emptiness and loneliness say it all

Even if it takes a thousand years or more
Even if we cried a thousand tears, I'm sure
We'd still want more and more

Walked all over me, played around with my heart
Who knows where or when from the middle through until the end?
An easy touch, you knew as much all along

Even if it takes a thousand years or more
Even if we cried a thousand tears, I'm sure
We'd still want more and more

 

A Mess of Blues

( Pomus / Shuman )

I just got your letter baby, too bad you can't come home
I swear I'm going crazy, sitting here all alone
Since you gone I got a mess of the blues

Whoops there goes a tear drop, a-rolling down my face
And if you cry when you're alone it's surely no disgrace

I ain't slept a wink since Sunday, I can't eat a thing all day
And every day is just Blue Monday since you've been away
Since you gone I got a mess of the blues

Whoops there goes a tear drop, a rolling down my face
And if you cry when you're alone it's surely no disgrace

I gotta get myself together before I lose my mind
I'm gonna catch-a the next train going, and leave my blues behind
Since you gone I got a mess of the blues

I gotta get myself together before I lose my mind
I'm gonna catch-a the next train going, and leave my blues behind
Since you gone I got a mess of the blues
Since you gone I got a mess of the blues
Since you gone I got a mess of the blues

 

A Planet Called Monday

Monday morning, everybody's yawning
Got to get up, get out
Get into town, mustn't be late
Silent travellers, never speaking
Only the buzz of a terminal bubble
Cruiing the airways, circling round.
Monday morning, everybody's crawling
Spiral stairways to the sun
Monday morning, everybody's yawning
Got to keep the fires high
Send them all up to the sky
Save us from eternal night
We need sunlight
Monday morning, sirens calling
Someone's got to keep this planet turning
Make us warm so we may rise again
Someone's got to keep the fires burning
No-one's cold when stairs unfold on...
Monday morning, Monday morning, Monday morning
Yeah, yeah...Yeah, yeah...Yeah...
No-one's cold on Monday morning
Once we lazed on sun-soaked beaches trying
Golden people blessed with days of light
Now we only climb to keep from dying
No-one's cold when stairs unfold on
Monday morning, everybody's crawling,
Spiral staiways, spiral stairways.
Monday morning, Monday morning, Monday morning

 

A Reason for Living

I felt in need of some loving so I sat down on a wall
I tried to find a reason for living, but I couldn't find a reason at all
So I owned up to my maker and I started to say a prayer
I waited for an answer but there wasn't anybody there

I thought there should have been someone, but I wasn't quite sure who
It finished me to find there was no-one that I could take my troubles to
So I knelt down by my bedside and I started to say a prayer
It was when I asked for nothing I could feel that there was somebody there

I'm looking still, but it's easy 'cos I know which way to go
It doesn't matter how long it takes me 'cos there's someone there to help me who knows
All the things that I am after, all the loving that I want to share
It's so hard but I don't mind 'cos there really is someone there

I felt in need of some loving so I sat down on a wall
I tried to find a reason for living, but I couldn't find a reason at all
So I owned up to my maker and I started to say a prayer
I waited for an answer but there wasn't anybody there

 

A Softer Ride

I ain't gonna work, I ain't gonna work no more
Stay in bed til I'm satisfied, and let my head take a softer ride
I ain't gonna work, I aint gonna work no more

I ain't gonna work, I ain't gonna work no more
I'll find me a shack where it's cool inside
And turn my back on the cold outside
I ain't gonna work, I ain't gonna work no more

If I could go back to the job I had
Same old thing gonna drive me mad
So I ain't gonna work, I ain't gonna work no more
Never again will I have to be
Down

I ain't gonna work, I ain't gonna work no more
Stay in bed til I'm satisfied, and let my head take a softer ride
I ain't gonna work, I aint gonna work no more

 

A Year

( Lancaster / Frost )

Standing by the wayside, begging for a ride
I been waiting so long, a year has gone
Look at all the people, strangers every one
I've been looking so long, a year has gone

You were all I lived for, I guess my life is through
I've been living so long, I can't go on
Lonely Sunday morning, rest in peace, my love
You been sleeping so long, a year has gone

How could I ever start to tell you
The end is almost here?
The song of love is ringing in my ears
Playing loud, playing clear
The song will never change
The memory will always be so near

Standing by the wayside, begging for a ride
I been waiting so long, a year has gone

 

Accident Prone

( Williams / Hutchins )

I'm a lay-by lover
And you're just another
Who just wants to hit and run
Now your on your own
'Cos I'm accident prone
And I hope that you have your fun

They say the devil loves his own
And lady you just got the roll
He drives you modus-operandi
Well lady you don't get this soul
What you call love I can't take no more
Go knock on someone else's door

I'm a lay-by lover
And you're just another
Who just wants to hit and run
Now your on your own
'Cos I'm accident prone
And I hope that you have your fun

'Cos you specialise your own kind of lies
Lady you just hit and run
I just wanna say you keep driving that way
And one day you will be undone

I try to love you my way
But lady you just wouldn't slow down
You drove a right on through me
When other guys came around
What you call love wouldn't give to a stray
I wouldn't treat a dog that way

I'm a lay-by lover
And you're just another
Who just wants to hit and run
Now your on your own
'Cos I'm accident prone
And I hope that you have your fun

'Cos you specialise your own kind of lies
Lady you just hit and run
I just wanna say you keep driving that way
And one day you will be undone

One day you'll have to slow down
And lady it could be too late
You keep on acceleratin'
And lady I could see your fate
No-one wants a second-hand car
They know it been push too far

I'm a lay-by lover
And you're just another
Who just wants to hit and run
Now your on your own
'Cos I'm accident prone
And I hope that you have your fun

'Cos you specialise your own kind of lies
Lady you just hit and run
You're draggin'me down with this riding around
And one day you will be undone

I'm a lay-by lover
And you're just another
Who just wants to hit and run
Now your on your own
'Cos I'm accident prone
And I hope that you have your fun

 

Address Book

Throw away your old address book of the guys you used to know
Get all dressed up in your best look, I'll take you to the movie show
You look lovely when you're angry, but I love the way you smile
We could while away the hours, or we could walk another mile

My darling don't you ever change, don't think I'd be quite the same
I thought I was in control, I thought I was in control

If I knew then what I know now of the chances at the time
Didn't know that I'd be missing a chance to lay it on the line
I could have asked you if you needed, or maybe wanted, to get out
But it didn't really matter, we got together anyhow

My darling don't you ever change, don't think I'd be quite the same
I thought I was in control, I thought I was in control

Threw away your old address book, took a while to realise
You'd be better off with someone, what I mean is me and mine
So whatya doing at the weekend? Shall we make it Friday night?
Anywhere you fancy going, and any way with me's all right

My darling don't you ever change, don't think I'd be quite the same
I thought I was in control, I thought I was in control

My darling don't you ever change, don't think I'd be quite the same
I thought I was in control, I thought I was in control

 

Again And Again

( Parfitt / Bown / Lynton )

Once upon a time not so very long ago
There wasn't such a thing as a rock'n roll show
You had to sit at home and listen to the radio

Then came a man with a rockin'guitar
Found himself a beat and he played it near and far
Everybody danced and sang and let the good times roll

Again again again again, again again again again
Why don't you do it, why don't you do it again
Again again again again, again again again again
Why don't you do it, why don't you do it again

He travelled round the world in a rock-n-roll band
He stood there like a giant with a guitar in his hand
Everybody danced and sang and let the good times roll

Nobody cared about the clothes he would wear
Nobody cared about the colour of his hair
Everybody came to see and let the good times roll

Again again again again, again again again again
Why don't you do it, why don't you do it again
Again again again again, again again again again
Why don't you do it, why don't you do it again

Now we've got the rhythm in us now we've got the rock
Time didn't matter never living by the clock
Everybody came to hear him playing his rock-n-roll

Then came a line when the music didn't rhyme
He couldn't find the rhythm cos he couldn't find the time
But still the people came to listen to the good times roll

Again again again again, again again again again
Why don't you do it, why don't you do it again
Again again again again, again again again again
Why don't you do it, why don't you do it again

Again again again again, again again again again
Why don't you do it, why don't you do it again
Again again again again, again again again again
Why don't you do it, why don't you do it again
Why don't you do it, why don't you do it again

 

Ain't Complaining

( Rossi / Parfitt / Williams )

There's nothing left, there's nothing right
There's nothing left, there's nothing right
There's nothing left, right left right
Up down up down up down up down

All right all right
You wind me up, you bring me down
Your reputation is all over the town
So long as you come home to me
I ain't complaining
You fool around, we scream and fight
The way you're treating me, you know it ain't right
But when you're making out with me
I ain't complaining

It ain't no use, you playing it loose
And thinking it don't matter to me
It ain't fair at all
You only have to call my name
And I'll come running to you

All right all right
You're out all night, you sleep all day
When I get home you're going out to play
Oh, woman give me some time and everything's fine
I ain't complaining

You just don't care, we're in a mess
And the company you keep ain't the best
But when you're lying there with me
I ain't complaining

It ain't no use, you playing it loose
And thinking it don't matter to me
It ain't fair at all
You only have to call my name
And I'll come running to you

But when the chips are down
A man can only take so much fooling around
And if you don't come home to me
I'll be complaining

All right
There's nothing left, there's nothing right
Our situation ain't looking too bright
'cause I have taken all I'm gonna take
Without complaining

It ain't no use playing it loose
And thinking it don't matter to me
It ain't fair at all
You only have to call my name
And I'll come running to you

But when the chips are down
A man can only take so much fooling around
And if I don't come home to you
You'll be complaining

All right all right all right all right
All right all right
