Track Name: Clean Dude
I'm glad that you're coming here again.
I spent the whole damn afternoon
Cleaning my room.
Just so I can pretend that it is
always this nice.
Ohh girl, once it's out of your sight,
The dirty socks are everywhere.
I don't know how they're getting there.

Let me just say: If I were you...
then I would take a deep breath!
I really think that you should.
At least, let me say:
It smells delicious to me!
Oh, how I love these newly-washed sheets!
I always keep them clean and fresh.
At least, when I'm expecting guests!

<< Funky synth and funky guitars! >>

Do you like your eggs boiled hard or soft?
Would you like coffee or tea?
I can provide both, of course.
This breakfast is great?
Thanks! Oh, it's nothing, you know.
You're always welcome, but its best if you
Give a heads up some time in advance.
So I can wash my UNDERPANTS!

<< Funky outro mhmmm.. >>
Track Name: Good-Bye, Honey-Pie!
You know just as well as I that
This arrangement, can't keep going on
So it's good-bye, honey-pie,
Sooooo loooooong!

I wanna go out
You wanna stay at home
Oh now come now girl, it's not that late!
I know a place where
All the dancers come
Oh now sugar it would be so great!

I could wear my
brand new dancing shoes
They were made to dance the night away!
If you won't come
I'll have to go alone
You know you know I just can't stay!

You know just as well as I that
This arrangement, can't keep going on
So it's good-bye, honey-pie,
Sooooo loooooong!

We can do the
dishes later, girl
And it's no time now to wash the bathroom!
I would very
very much prefer
To go out and listen to some dance tunes!

The city lights are
Shining golden bright
The inner city calls my name!
There's no way I'm
Staying here tonight
It's just not my style in any way!

You know just as well as I that
This arrangement, can't keep going on
So it's good-bye, honey-pie,
Sooooo loooooong!

Sure as when tides go in, the must come out – I'm leaving!
Sure as when days are done the sun goes down – I'm leaving!
Sure as when there's no rain, there will be drought – I'm leaving!
Sure as the sky has clouds – I'm leaving yooooouuuuuu

You know just as well as I that
This arrangement, can't keep going on
So it's good-bye, honey-pie,
Sooooo loooooong!
Track Name: Won't You Come Over?
I know some guys, they promise you the world, baby
They shower you with diamonds and with pearls, lady.
Oh, I can't give you none of that, but I think that you'll find,
If you give me a chance, you'll have a real good time, girl

Won't you come on over soon?
The I can play you all my favourite songs,
Maybe have some cheap red wine.
We can go and watch the stars come out,
Baby, let's stay outside,
'till night gives way for day.

I can't buy you champagne or lobsters on a plate
But I can take you record shopping, baby, any day
You won't find me at parties where I'd have to wear a tie.
But I can take you dancing from sundown to sunrise!

Won't you come on over soon?
The I can play you all my favourite songs,
Maybe have some cheap red wine.
We can go and watch the stars come out,
Baby, let's stay outside,
'till night gives way for day.
Track Name: Anywhere But Here
No diamonds seem to shine as bright
As the sunlight when it sparkles in your eyes
Oh, the stars and the moon
Don't glow compared to you
How I wish you near!
But it seems, you're always gone
To somewhere else
With someone else
Than me

The birds don't seem to sing no more
And the flowers drop their petals to the floor
And although it's july,
The rain won't say goodbye
Since you left me here
I just need to get away
To go somewhere
Just anywhere
But here, where you'll be

[ SAXOPHONE ]

You're voice still rings in my head
And I still remember all the things you said
I don't want to go out
And face that awful crowd
With all the couples there
They'll be walking holding hands
Reminding me
So painfully
How we used to be
Track Name: Yes I Know
Once you cross that line
You can't go back
You're gonna loose that friend
Once you take that step
But you might gain a new lover too

You're lying to yourself
And you li to her
You've gotta quit this act
And just tell that girl
That you can't be a friend anymore

I know you fear that she might turn and run away
But it's a chance you have to take

Your palms turn wet
And your mouth is dry
You can't find the words
So you just say goodnight
And make your way back to sleep alone

[ SYNTHESIZER 4-LIFE ]

I know you fear that she might turn and run away
But it's a chance you have to take

You better get there soon
Or the moment has passed
And there'll be someone else
There to hold her hand
There's a bitter taste to things left undone

I know it seems like she is way out of your league
But you'll just have to try and see
Track Name: The Night Is Made For Dancing!
Nobody listens to disco lyrics!
Track Name: Got To Go!
Wait a minute
Keep in mind
I'll never promise
To stay around forever

I get a feeling
From time to time
I just got to move on
And look for something better

I don't really
Have a clue
What it is I'm missing
Or if I'll ever know

Birds fly south
Eels swim west
Flowers bloom
And I just got to go
