Track Name: Let's Do It, Let's Fall in Love
Birds do it, bees do it
Even educated fleas do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love
In Spain, the best upper sets do it
Lithuanians and Letts do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love
The Dutch in old Amsterdam do it
Not to mention the Finns
Folks in Siam do it - think of Siamese twins
Some Argentines, without means, do it
People say in Boston even beans do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love
Sponges, they say, do it
Oysters down in Oyster Bay do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love
Cold Cape Cod clams, 'gainst their wish, do it
Even lazy jellyfish, do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love
Electric eels I might add do it
Though it shocks them I know
Why ask if shad do it - Waiter bring me "shad roe"
In shallow shoals English soles do it
Goldfish in privacy of bowls do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love
Track Name: Sympathique
Ma chambre a la forme d'une cage
Le soleil passe son bras par la fenêtre
Les chasseurs à ma porte
Comme les p'tits soldats
Qui veulent me prendre
Je ne veux pas travailler
Je ne veux pas déjeuner
Je veux seulement l'oublier
Et puis je fume
Déjà j'ai connu le parfum de l'amour
Un million de roses n'embaumerait pas autant
Mais une seule fleur dans mes entourages
Me rend malade
Je ne veux pas travailler
Je ne veux pas déjeuner
Je veux seulement l'oublier
Et puis je fume
Je ne suis pas fière de ça
Vie qui veut me tuer
C'est magnifique être Sympathique
Mais je ne le connais jamais
Je ne veux pas travailler
Je ne veux pas déjeuner
Je veux seulement l'oublier
Et puis je fume
Je ne suis pas fière de ça
Vie qui veut me tuer
C'est magnifique être Sympathique
Mais je ne le connais jamais
Je ne veux pas travailler
Je ne veux pas déjeuner
Je veux seulement l'oublier
Et puis je fume
Track Name: Sunny Afternoon
The tax man's taken all my dough,
And left me in my stately home,
Lazing on a sunny afternoon.
And I can't sail my yacht,
He's taken everything 'Ive got,
All 'Ive got's this sunny afternoon.
Save me, save me, save me from this squeeze.
I got a big fat mama trying to break me.
And I love to live so pleasantly,
Live this life of luxury,
Lazing on a sunny afternoon.
In the summertime
In the summertime
In the summertime
My girlfriend's run off with my car,
And gone back to her ma and pa,
Telling tales of drunkenness and cruelty.
Now I'm sitting here,
Sipping on my ice cold beer,
Lazing on a sunny afternoon.
Help me, help me, help me get away,
Give me two good reasons why I ought to stay.
'Cause I love to live so pleasantly,
Live this life of luxury,
Lazing on a sunny afternoon.
In the summertime
In the summertime
In the summertime
Save me, save me, save me from this squeeze.
I got a big fat mama trying to break me.
And I love to live so pleasantly,
Live this life of luxury,
Lazing on a sunny afternoon.
In the summertime
In the summertime
In the summertime
Track Name: Let's Call the Whole Thing Off
Things have come to a pretty pass,
Our romance is growing flat,
For you like this and the other
While I go for this and that.
Goodness knows what the end will be;
Oh, I don't know where I'm at...
It's plain to see we two will never make one,
Something must be done.
You say either and I say either,
You say neither and I say neither;
Either, either, neither, neither,
Let's call the whole thing off!
You like potato and I like potato,
You like tomato and I like tomato;
Potato, potato, tomato, tomato!
Let's call the whole thing off!
But oh! If we call the whole thing off,
Then we must part.
And oh! If we ever part,
Then that might break my heart!
So, if you like pajamas and I like pajamas,
We'll wear pajamas and take off our pajamas
For we know we need each other,
So we better call the calling off off.
Let's call the whole thing off!
You say laughter and I say laughter,
You say after and I say after;
Laughter, laughter, after, after,
Let's call the whole thing off!
You like Havanah, and I like Havanah
You like banana, and I like banana
Havanah, Havanah, banana, banana
Let's call the whole thing off!
But oh! If we call the whole thing off,
Then we must part.
And oh! If we ever part,
Then that might break my heart!
So, if you go for oysters and I go for oysters
I'll order oysters and cancel my oysters.
For we know we need each other,
So we better call the calling off off!
Let's call the whole thing off!
Track Name: Toxicity
Conversion software version seven point o
Looking at life through the eyes of a tired hub
Eating seeds as a pastime activity
The toxicity of our city, of our city
Now, what do you own the world?
How do you own disorder, disorder?
Now somewhere between the sacred silence
Sacred silence and sleep
Somewhere, between the sacred silence and sleep
Disorder, disorder, disorder
More wood for the fires, loud neighbors
Flashlight reveries caught in the headlights of a truck
Eating seeds as a pastime activity
The toxicity of our city, of our city
Now, what do you own the world?
How do you own disorder, disorder?
Now somewhere between the sacred silence
Sacred silence and sleep
Somewhere between the sacred silence and sleep
Disorder, disorder, disorder
Track Name: Straighten Up and Fly Right
A buzzard took a monkey for a ride in the air
The monkey thought that everything was on the square
The buzzard tried to throw the monkey off of his back
But the monkey grabbed his neck and said: "Now listen, Jack
Straighten up and fly right
Straighten up and stay right
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down, papa, don't you blow your top.
Ain't no use in divin' .
What's the use of jivin'?
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down, papa, don't you blow your top."
The buzzard told the monkey "You are chokin' me
Release your hold and I will set you free."
The monkey looked the buzzard right dead in the eye and said
"Your story's really touching but it sounds like a lie.
Straighten up and fly right
Straighten up and stay right
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down, papa, don't you blow your top.
Track Name: Bei mir bistu shein
Of all the boys I've known and I've known some
Until I first met you I was lonesome
And when you came in sight, dear my heart grew light
And this whole world seemed new to me
You're really swell, I have to admit you
Deserve expressions that really fit you
And so I've racked my brain, hoping to explain
All the things that you do to me
Bei Mir Bist Du Shein, please let me explain
Bei Mir Bist Du Shein, means you're grand
Bei Mir Bist Du Shein, again I'll explain
It means you're the fairest in the land
I could say bella bella, even say wunderbar
Each language only helps me tell you how great you are
I've tried to explain, Bei Mir Bist Du Shein
So kiss me and say you understand
Track Name: Bullet with Butterfly Wings
The world is a vampire, sent to drain
Secret destroyers, hold you up to the flames
And what do I get, for my pain?
Betrayed desires, and a piece of the game
Even though I know - I suppose I'll show
All my cool and cold - like old job
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Then someone will say what is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Now I'm naked, nothing but an animal
But can you fake it, for just one more show?
And what do you want?
I want to change
And what have you got, when you feel the same?
Even though I know - I suppose I'll show
All my cool and cold - like old job
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Then someone will say what is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Tell me I'm the only one
Tell me there's no other one
Jesus was the only son, yeah.
Tell me I'm the chosen one
Jesus was the only son for you
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
And someone will say what is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a-
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a-
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Tell me I'm the only one
Tell me there's no other one
Jesus was the only son for you
And I still believe that I cannot be saved
Track Name: The Frim Fram Sauce
I don't want French-fried potatoes,
Red, ripe tomatoes.
I'm never satisfied.
I want the Frim Fram Sauce
With the ossin'fay
With shifafa on the side.
I don't want pork chops and bacon.
That won't awaken
My appetite in side.
I want the Frim Fram Sauce
With the ossin'fay
With shifafa on the side.
Well, a girl, sh'se really got to eat,
And a girl, she should eat right.
Five will get you ten
I'm gonna feed myself right tonight.
I don't want fish-cakes and Rye bread,
You heard what I said.
Waiter, please, I want mine fried.
I want the Frim Fram Sauce
With the ossin'fay
With shifafa on the side.
Track Name: A Sunday Kind of Love
I want a Sunday kind of love
A love to last past Saturday night
And I’d like to know
It’s more than love at first sight
And I want a Sunday kind of love
I want a, a love that’s on the square
Can’t seem to find somebody
Someone to care
And I’m on a lonely road
That leads to nowhere
I need a Sunday kind of love
I do my Sunday dreaming, oh yeah
And all my Sunday scheming
Every minute, every hour, every day
Oh, I’m hoping to discover
A certain kind of lover
Who will show me the way
And my arms need someone
Someone to enfold
To keep me warm when Mondays and Tuesdays grow cold
Love for all my life to have and to hold
Oh and I want a Sunday kind of love
I don’t want a Monday, not a Tuesday, not a Wednesday
Or Thursday, Friday or Saturday
Oh nothing but Sunday,
I want a Sunday Sunday
I want a Sunday kind of love,
Sunday kind of love
Track Name: (Sittin' on) The Dock of the Bay
Sittin' in the morning sun
I'll be sittin' when the evening comes
Watching the ships roll in
And then I watch 'em roll away again
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wasting time
I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the 'Frisco bay
'Cause I've had nothing to live for
And look like nothing's gonna come my way
So I'm just gonna sit on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wasting time
Looks like nothing's gonna change
Everything just remains the same
I can't do what ten people tell me to do
So I guess I'll just remain the same
Sittin' here resting my bones
And this loneliness won't leave me alone
It's been two thousand miles I've roamed
Just to make this dock my home
Now, I'm just gonna sit at the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wasting time
Track Name: I Will Survive
At first I was afraid, I was petrified,
Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side
But then I spent so many nights
Thinking how you did me wrong
And I grew strong
I learned how to get along
And now you're back from outer space
I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face
I should have changed that stupid lock
I should have made you leave your key
If I've known for just one second you'd back to bother me
Go on now, go walk out the door
Just turn around now
'Cause you're not welcome anymore
Weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
Do you think I'd crumble
Did you think I'd lay down and die?
Oh no, not I. I will survive
Oh as long as I know how to love
I know I'll stay alive
I've got all my life to live
I've got all my love to give and I'll survive
I will survive, Hey hey
It took all the strength I had not to fall apart
Trying hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart
And I spent oh so many nights
Just feeling sorry for myself, I used to cry
But now I hold my head up high
And you see me, somebody new
I'm not that stupid little person still in love with you
And so you thought you'd just drop by
And you'd expect me to be free
But now I'm saving all my lovin' for someone who's loving me
Go on now go, walk out the door
Just turn around now
'Cause you're not welcome anymore
Weren't you the one who tried to break me with goodbye
Do you think I'd crumble
Did you think I'd lay down and die?
Oh no, not I. I will survive
Oh as long as I know how to love
I know I'll stay alive
I've got all my life to live
I've got all my love to give and I'll survive
I will survive, hey hey
