A1.Waterloo (Swedish)

Jo, jo i Waterloo Napoleon fick gesej
Men, men, sitt öde kan man möta pa sa manga skil da sätt
Själv känner jag, sen jag mött dej
Histori en upp repar sej

Waterloo, jag är beseg rad nu ger jag mej
Waterloo, lovar med nöje att alska dej
Waterloo, allting känns rätt, och emin tro
Waterloo, du är mitt öde, mitt Waterloo
Wah-wah-wah-wah-wah Waterloo
Du är mitt öde, mit Waterloo

Jo, jo, man vär jer sej och fäktas i det längsta
Men men mot känslor kämpar gudarna för gäves har man sagt
Det är som jag hör de en sang
Jag tror det är kärlek pa gang

Waterloo, mäktig och väldig och stark är han
Waterloo, allting känns rätt, och emin tro
Waterloo, du är mitt öde, mitt Waterloo
Wah-wah-wah-wah-wah Waterloo
Du är mitt öde, mit Waterloo

Det är som jag hör de en sang
Jag tror det är kärlek pa gang

2.Sitting in the palmtree 

See me sitting in the palmtree
Looking down at people passing by
Sitting here no one can harm me
They just stare and wonder why

No need to bother, I'm gonna stay up here
Whatever happens, I won't let no one near
Until you tell me, Ginny, Ginny on my mind
Won't you please
You really love me, Ginny, Ginny on my mind
Yes you are now
And in the evening when the sun goes down
I'll be the bluest of men in this town
'Cause I love you, Ginny, Ginny on my mind

See me sitting in the palmtree
Waiting for those little words from you
People laugh and point their fingers
Like I was a monkey at the zoo

But I will stay here among my coconuts
So you will know dear, you're everything I've got
Why don't you tell me, Ginny, Ginny on my mind

Winds blow, stars glow
I see a light in her window
Dark trees, soft breeze
Carry my message to her please

See me sitting in the palmtree
Getting angry at the silly crowd
No one else but you should call me
You should know by now I'm far to proud

I need to show you I've got my feelings too
You shloudn't treat me like you always do
So won't you tell me, Ginny, Ginny on my mind
Won't you please
You really love me, Ginny, Ginny on my mind
Yes you are now
And in the evening when the sun goes down
I'll be the bluest of men in this town
'Cause I love you, Ginny, Ginny on my mind

Ginny, Ginny, you're so fine
Ginny, Ginny on my mind
Ginny, Ginny, you're so fine
Ginny, Ginny on my mind
Ginny, Ginny, you're so fine
Ginny, Ginny on my mind

3.King Kong song 

Well I was looking at a movie on the t.v. last night
Then I heard a very funny notion, yeah
I really had to write a song about it
And then I'm gonna sing it with my rock'n roll band
And I bet that people gonna like it, yeah
I know that everybody's gonna shout it

About a dreadful mighty killer
A big black wild gorilla

We do the King Kong song, won't you sing along
Listen to the music and it couldn't go wrong
We do the King Kong song, gotta sing along
Can't you hear the bearin' of the monkey tom tom
Listen to the rhythm of the King Kong song

Now we can make a jungle out of any old place
We can make gorilla's out of people, yeah
Well who can tell a monkey from a nonkey
So people get together, gonna have a good time
Everybody listen to the music, yeah
The song we're gonna sing is kinda funky

So let your arms hang down
And waddle all around
Like a dreadful mighty killer
A big black wild gorilla

We do the King Kong song, won't you sing along
Listen to the music and it couldn't go wrong
We do the King Kong song, gotta sing along
Can't you hear the bearin' of the monkey tom tom
Listen to the rhythm of the King Kong song

About a dreadful mighty killer
A big black wild gorilla

We do the King Kong song, won't you sing along
Listen to the music and it couldn't go wrong
We do the King Kong song, gotta sing along
Can't you hear the bearin' of the monkey tom tom
Listen to the rhythm of the King Kong song

We do the King Kong song, won't you sing along
Listen to the music and it can't go wrong
We do the King Kong song, gotta sing along
Can't you hear the bearin' of the monkey tom tom
Listen to the rhythm of the King Kong song

4.Hasta mañana 

Where is the spring and the summer
That once was yours and mine
Where did it go, I just don't know
But still my love for you will live forever

Hasta mañana, 'til we meet again
Don't know where, don't know when
Darling our love was much too strong to die
We'll find a way to face a new tomorrow
Hasta mañana, say we'll meet agin
I can't do without you
Time to forget, send me a letter
Say you forgive, the sooner the better
Hasta mañana, baby
Hasta mañana, untill then

Where is the dream we were sharing
And all the nights we shared
Where did they go, I just don't know
And I can't tell you just how much I miss you

Hasta mañana, 'til we meet again
Don't know where, don't know when
Darling our love was much too strong to die
We'll find a way to face a new tomorrow
Hasta mañana, say we'll meet agin
I can't do without you
Time to forget, send me a letter
Say you forgive, the sooner the better
Hasta mañana, baby
Hasta mañana, untill then

Hasta mañana, say we'll meet agin
I can't do without you
Time to forget, send me a letter
Say you forgive, the sooner the better
Hasta mañana, baby
Hasta mañana, untill then

5.My mama said 

Tried to sneak out without saying
With my loudest record playing

Oh, oh, my mama said
Look at you, you haven't done your bed
My mama said
That's a thing that you should do instead

Yeah I did what she had told me
Dying for my friend to hold me

Oh, oh, my mama said
Try and get one thing into your head
My mama said
Pa and me, we give you room and bread

How I wanna live my life
Wanna live my life
Li-li-li, li-li-li, life

In the morning she said, Listen
Oh I felt like in a prison

Yeah, eah, my mama said
I know you've been out again with Fred
My mama said
Don't you lie, your cheeks are blushing red

How I wanna live my life
Wanna live my life
Li-li-li, li-li-li, life

I said, I can't live without him
How I wish you wouldn't doubt him

Oh, oh, my mama said
If you wanna hurt me go ahead
My mama said
I suppose you'd rather see me dead

How I wanna live my life
Wanna live my life
Li-li-li, li-li-li, life
Li-li-li, li-li-li, life
Li-li-li, li-li-li, life
Li-li-li, li-li-li, life
Li-li-li, li-li-li, life

6.Dance (while the music still goes on) 

Oh my love it makes me sad
Why did things turn out so bad
Was it just a dream
Everything we did, everything we had

Baby give me one more
Dance, while the music still goes on
Don't think about tomorrow
Dance and forget our time is gone
Tonight's a night we borrow
Let's make it a memory, a night of our own
A thing to remember, when we're all alone
So dance, it's our way to say goodbye

Yes all we have to do is
Dance, while the music still goes on
This is no time for cryin'
Dance, don't you hear them play our song
God knows that we've been tryin'
But we didn't make it, 'cause nothing's the same
We just couldn't help it, nobody's to blame
Dance, while the music still goes on
And let it be our last goodbye

Yet it seems to make me sad
Why did things turn out so bad
Was it just a dream
Everything we did, everything we had

Baby give me one last
Dance, while the music still goes on
Just like the night I met you
Dance and believe me when you're gone
You know I won't forget you
Our love was a snowbird, it's flying away
You tell me it's over, what more can I say
So dance, while the music still goes on
It's gonna be our last goodbye

Dance, while the music still goes on
Don't think about tomorrow
Dance and forget our time is gone
Tonight's a night we borrow
Let's make it a memory, a night of our own
A thing to remember, when we're all alone
So dance, while the music still goes on
And let it be our last goodbye

Dance, while the music still goes on
This is no time for cryin'
Dance, don't you hear them play our song
God knows that we've been tryin'
Dance, while the music still goes on
Just like the night I met you
Dance and believe me when you're gone
You know I won't forget you
Dance, while the music still goes on .......

B1.Honey honey 

Honey, honey, how you thrill me, aha honey, honey
Honey, honey, nearly kill me, aha honey, honey
I heard about you before
I wanted to know some more
And now I know what they mean
You're a love machine
Oh you make me dizzy

Honey, honey, let me feel it, aha honey, honey
Honey, honey, don't conceal it, aha honey, honey
The way that you kiss goodnight
The way that you hold me tight
I feel like I wanna sing
When you do your thing

I don't wanna hurt you baby
I don't wanna see you cry
So stay on the ground girl
You'd better not get to high

But I'm gonna stick to you boy
You'll never get rid of me
There's no other place in this world
Where I'd rather would be

Honey, honey, touch me baby, aha honey, honey
Honey, honey, hold me baby, aha honey, honey
You look like a movie star
But I know just who you are
And honey, to say the least
You're a doggone beast

So stay on the ground girl
You'd better not get too high

There's no other place in this world
Where I'd rather would be

Honey, honey, how you thrill me, aha honey, honey
Honey, honey, nearly kill me, aha honey, honey
I heard about you before
I wanted to know some more
And now I know what they mean
You're a love machine
Oh you make me dizzy

2.Watch out 

You move me like a flame of fire
Your eyes like a dash of lightning
The answer to all desire
And I'm gonna tame you wild thing

You'd better watch out
I said, you'd better watch out
Watch out
Anywhere you go, I'll find you
Watch out
I'll be staying close behind you
And I'm tired of waiting
Yes, it's driving me crazy
And my patience is fadin'
Oh you'd better watch out
I said, you'd better watch out

It's been kinda funny lately
You act like I was a stranger
I think you begin to hate me
But then you're a girl in danger

You'd better watch out
Ooh I said, you'd better watch out
Watch out
Anywhere you go, I'll find you
Watch out
I'll be staying close behind you
And I'm tired of waiting
Yes, it's driving me crazy
And my patience is fadin'
So you'd better watch out
I said, you'd better watch out

Watch out

And I'm tired of waiting
Yes, it's driving me crazy
And my patience is fadin'
I saiud, you'd better watch out
Oh girl you'd better watch out
Ah, you'd better watch out
Ooh, you'd better watch out

3.What about Livingstone 

Went to buy me a paper
At the local news stand
And then I heard them
Laugh and say
Look they're gonna go flyin'
Way up to the moon now
Hey what's it good for
Anyway
So I said, fellows
Like to ask you a thing if I may

What about Livingstone
What about all those men
Who have sacrificed their lives
To lead the way
Tell me, wasn't it worth the while
Travelin' up the Nile
Putting themselves on test
Didn't that help the rest
Wasn't it worth it then
What about Livingstone

And all of these fellows
At the local news stand
Didn't know what to answer
Or what to say
So I told them about him
That he was just like
One of those spacemen
In his way
And if you laugh at them
Then there's only a thing I can say

What about Livingstone
What about all those men
Who have sacrificed their lives
To lead the way
Tell me, wasn't it worth the while
Travelin' up the Nile
Putting themselves on test
Didn't that help the rest
Wasn't it worth it then

What about Livingstone
What about all those men
Who have sacrificed their lives
To lead the way
Tell me, wasn't it worth the while
Travelin' up the Nile
Putting themselves on test
Didn't that help the rest
Wasn't it worth it then

What about Livingstone
What about all those men
Who have sacrificed their lives
To lead the way
Tell me, wasn't it worth the while
Travelin' up the Nile
Putting themselves on test
Didn't that help the rest
Wasn't it worth it then

4.Gonna sing you my lovesong 

You say, she's been mad at you
Then you say you'll be patient
Still I see that she makes you blue
Come on, I'll give you consolation

Gonna sing you my lovesong, gonna bring you some light
Gonna make you feel happy, everyday of your life
Gonna sing you my lovesong, gonna make it alright

You're all I ever need my darlin'

Just to be where you want to be
So much we could have then
To be yours for eternity
What a miracle to happen

Gonna sing you my lovesong, gonna sing it for you
Gonna give you sweet lovin', gonna give myself too
Gonna sing you my lovesong, when I think about you

I know she doesn't make it easy
'Cause you don't please me like you please me

You're my love, you're my angel
You're my first, you're my last
Would she care if you linger
For another night
Wanna hold you tight
We could make it right

Gonna sing you my lovesong, gonna bring you some light
Gonna make you feel happy, everyday of your life
Gonna sing you my lovesong, gonna make it alright

5.Suzy-hang-around 

Suzy was nine and I was ten
Right at the time when boys like think they're men
She used to follow us to school
We really thought that she was a little fool
And one day we said to her
We don't wanna hurt you girl, but you've better

Look for a friend of your own, Suzy-hang-around
Better come back when you're grown, Suzy-hang-around
Nobody wants you around here and that's for sure
So get off our playground and stay away
That's all that we've got to say, Suzy-hang-around

Suzy ran home to mama's arms
Mama said: "Look, she's never done you no harm
So get off her back and let her be
Why can't you play together in harmony"
We really didn't know what to say
But as soon as she went away, we laughed and said

Look for a friend of your own, Suzy-hang-around
Better come back when you're grown, Suzy-hang-around
Nobody wants you around here and that's for sure
So get off our playground and stay away
That's all that we've got to say, Suzy-hang-around
'Cause you've better

Look for a friend of your own, Suzy-hang-around
Better come back when you're grown, Suzy-hang-around
Nobody wants you around here and that's for sure
So get off our playground and stay away
That's all that we've got to say, Suzy-hang-around

6.Waterloo 

My, my, at Waterloo Napoleon did surrender
Oh yeah, and I have met my destiny in quite a similar way
The history book on the shelf
Is always repeating itself

Waterloo, I was defeated, you won the war
Waterloo, promise to love me forever more
Waterloo, couldn't escape if I wanted to
Waterloo, knowing my fate is to be with you
Wah-wah-wah-wah-wah Waterloo
Finally facing my Waterloo

My my, I tried to hold you back, but you were stronger
Oh yeah, and now it seems my only chance is giving up the fight
And how I could ever refuse
I feel like I win when I lose

Waterloo, I was defeated, you won the war
Waterloo, promise to love me forever more
Waterloo, couldn't escape if I wanted to
Waterloo, knowing my fate is to be with you
Wah-wah-wah-wah-wah Waterloo
Finally facing my Waterloo

So how could I ever refuse
I feel like I win when I lose

Waterloo, couldn't escape if I wanted to
Waterloo, knowing my fate is to be with you
Wah-wah-wah-wah-wah Waterloo
Finally facing my Waterloo
Woo-woo-woo-woo Waterloo
Knowing my fate is to be with you
Wah-wah-wah-wah-wah Waterloo
Finally facing my Waterloo
Woo-woo-woo-woo Waterloo
Knowing my fate is ......
