A1.Mamma Mia 

I've been cheated by you since I don't know when
So I made up my mind, it must come to an end
Look at me now, will I ever learn
I don't know how, but I suddenly lose control
There's a fire within my soul
Just a look and I can hear a bell ring
One more look and I forget everything, oooh

Mamma Mia, here I go again
My, my, how can I resist you
Mamma Mia, does it show again
My, my, just how much I missed you
Yes I've been broken hearted
Blue since the day we parted
Why, why, did I ever let you go
Mamma mia, now I really know
My, my, I could never let you go

I've been angry and sad about things that you do
I can't count all the times that I've told you we're through
And when you go, when you slam the door
I think you know that you won't be away too long
You know that I'm not that strong
Just one look and I hear a bell ring
One more look and I forget everything, oooh

Mamma Mia, here I go again
My, my, how can I resist you
Mamma Mia, does it show again
My, my, just how much I missed you
Yes I've been broken hearted
Blue since the day we parted
Why, why, did I ever let you go
Mamma Mia, even if I say
Bye bye, leave me now or never
Mamma Mia, it's a game we play
Bye bye, doesn't mean forever

Mamma Mia, here I go again
My, my, how can I resist you
Mamma Mia, does it show again
My, my, just how much I missed you
Yes I've been broken hearted
Blue since the day we parted
Why, why, did I ever let you go
Mamma mia, now I really know
My, my, I could never let you go

2.Hey hey Helen 

So at last you're free
It's the way you wanted it to be
And the price you pay
To be called a woman of today
Is it worth the pain to see the children cry
Does it hurt when they ask for daddy

Hey hey Helen, now you live on your own
Hey hey Helen, can you make it alone
(Yes you can)

So you're free at last
And beginning to forget the past
Does it make you sad
When you think about the life you had
But you're right, you had to take a second chance
So you fight to find your freedom

Hey hey Helen, now you live on your own
Hey hey Helen, can you make it alone
Hey hey Helen, what's the matter with you
Hey hey Helen, don't you know what to do
(Yes you can)

Hey hey Helen, now you live on your own
Hey hey Helen, can you make it alone
Hey hey Helen, what's the matter with you
Hey hey Helen, don't you know what to do

3.Tropical loveland 

Come to my loveland, wander along
Beautiful gardens full of flowers and songs
Come to the sunshine, beaches and sand
Listen to blue-birds, won't you come to my land

The grass is mellow and the sky is blue
My paradise is waiting here for you

Oh, oh, oh, it's a tropical loveland
Oh, oh, oh, I wanna share it with you
Life can be funny, happy and sunny
Oh, oh, oh, in my tropical loveland

Come to my loveland, wander with me
Lie with me darling, in the shade of a tree
Over the rainbow, under the moon
That's where my land is, won't you come to me soon

Just take my hand I'll show you everything
The secrets that my paradise can bring

Oh, oh, oh, it's a tropical loveland
Oh, oh, oh, I wanna share it with you
Life can be funny, happy and sunny
Oh, oh, oh, in my tropical loveland

Oh, oh, oh, it's a tropical loveland
Oh, oh, oh, I wanna share it with, I wanna share it with you
Oh, oh, oh, it's a tropical loveland
Oh, oh, oh, I wanna share it with you
Oh, oh, oh, it's a tropical loveland
Oh, oh, oh, I wanna share it with you
Oh, oh, oh, it's a tropical loveland
Oh, oh, oh, I wanna share it with you

4.S.O.S. 

Where are those happy days
They seem so hard to find
I try to reach for you
But you have closed your mind
Whatever happened to our love
I wish I understood
It used to be so nice
It used to be so good

So when you're near me
Darling, can't you hear me, S.O.S.
The love you gave me
Nothing else can save me, S.O.S.
When you're gone
How can I even try to go on
When you're gone
Though I try, how can I carry on

You seem so far away
Though you are standing near
You made me feel alive
But something died I fear
I really tried to make it out
I wish I understood
What happened to our love
It used to be so good

So when you're near me
Darling, can't you hear me, S.O.S.
The love you gave me
Nothing else can save me, S.O.S.
When you're gone
How can I even try to go on
When you're gone
Though I try, how can I carry on

So when you're near me
Darling, can't you hear me, S.O.S.
And the love you gave me
Nothing else can save me, S.O.S.
When you're gone
How can I even try to go on
When you're gone
Though I try, how can I carry on

When you're gone
How can I even try to go on
When you're gone
Though I try, how can I carry on

5.Man in the middle 

Did you see that man
In the limousine
With the pretty blonde
He is fifty and the girl's only seventeen
But she doesn't care
And she never will
If he's ninety five
She don't give a damn just as long as he pays the bill

Did you see that man
With the fat cigar
He just left his lunch
With a belly full of lobster and caviar
He can choose a wine
From a vintage year
He will drink champagne
In his limousine when the rest of us drink a beer

Cause he's the man in the middle, never second fiddle
Just like a spider in a cobweb
Hard as a hammer, not the kind of boss
You double cross
Cause he's the man in the middle, knows the way to diddle
He's never bothered by his conscience
Deals with the devil, cause he wants to be
Man in the middle, the middle, the middle, in the middle

But you see, that man
Made a big mistake
Even though he's got
All his servants and a mansion beside a lake
And the money too
All that he can spend
He can buy the most, nearly anything
But he can't buy an honest friend

Cause he's the man in the middle, never second fiddle
Just like a spider in a cobweb
Hard as a hammer, not the kind of boss
You double cross
Cause he's the man in the middle, knows the way to diddle
He's never bothered by his conscience
Deals with the devil, cause he wants to be
Man in the middle, the middle, the middle, in the middle

6.Bang a boomerang 

Makin' somebody happy is a question of give and take
You can learn how to show it, so come on give yourself a break
Every smile and every little touch
Don't you know that they mean so much
Sweet sweet kisses so tender
Always will return to sender, like a

Bang-a-boome-boomerang
Dum-mi dum-dum-mi dum-mi dum-dum
A bang-a-boome-boomerang
Love is a tune you hum-mi hum hum
By givin' away I think you learn
You get love in return
So bang-a-boome-boomerang is love
A boome-boomerang is love

Love is always around and you can look for it anywhere
When you feel that you've found it, my advice is to take care
Never use it as a selfish tool
Never ever be such a fool
Every feelin' you're showin'
Is a boomerang you're throwin', yes a

Bang-a-boome-boomerang
Dum-mi dum-dum-mi dum-mi dum-dum
A bang-a-boome-boomerang
Love is a tune you hum-mi hum hum
By givin' away I think you learn
You get love in return
So bang-a-boome-boomerang is love
A boome-boomerang is love

And if you're warm and tender
I'll kiss you return to sender
Please surrender

Bang-a-boome-boomerang
Dum-mi dum-dum-mi dum-mi dum-dum
So bang-a-boome-boomerang is love
A boome-boomerang is love

B1.I do, I do, I do, I do, I do 

Love me or leave me
Make your choice, but believe me

If we can't make it, but just wait and see

3.Intermezzo no. 1 (Instrumental)

4.I've been waiting for you 

I, I've been in love before
I thought I would no more
Manage to hit the ceiling
Still, strange as it seems to be
You brought it back to me
That old feeling

I, I don't know what you do
You make me think that you
Possibly could release me
I think you'll be able to
Make all my dreams come true
And you ease me

You thrill me, you delight me
You please me, you excite me
You're something I'd been pleading for
I love you, I adore you
I've laid my life before you
I'll have you want me more and more
And finally it seems my lonely days are through
I've been waiting for you

I, I'm gonna make you mine
You're gonna feel so fine
You'll never want to leave me
I feel you belong to me
Someday you will agree
Please believe me

You thrill me, you delight me
You please me, you excite me
You're something I'd been pleading for
I love you, I adore you
I've laid my life before you
I'll have you want me more and more
And finally it seems my lonely days are through
I've been waiting for you

Ooh-ooh-ooh, I've been waiting for you

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, etcetera

5.So long 

You think you're gonna make me softer with your fancy car, aha
But I can tell you, all your tricks ain't gonna get you far, aha
They say that money's got a magic touch
But not to me, it doesn't mean that much
You won't have me tonight
Alright, alright, alright, alright

So long, see you honey
Can't buy me with your money
Tracy, Daisy, they may be crazy
But I'll never be your girl
So long, see you honey
Can't buy with me your money
You know it's not worth trying
So long, so long, so long

You didn't have to send me flowers like you did today, aha
I wouldn't keep a thing from you, I'd give 'em all away, aha
The girls might fall for everything you've got
But I'm not one of them, you know I'm not
You won't have me tonight
Alright, alright, alright, alright

So long, see you honey
Can't buy me with your money
Tracy, Daisy, they may be crazy
But I'll never be your girl
So long, see you honey
Can't buy with me your money
You know it's not worth trying
So long, so long, so long

So long, see you honey
Can't buy with me your money
You know it's not worth trying
So long, so long, so long

So long, so long, so long
So long, so long, so long
