A1.As good as new 

I'll never know
Why I had to go
Why I had to put up such a lousy rotten show
Boy, I was tough
Packing all my stuff
Saying I don't need you anymore, I've had enough
And now, look at me standing here again
'Cause I found out that ma-ma-ma-ma ......
My live is here
Gotta have you near

As good as new
My love for you
And keeping it that way is my intention
As good as new
And growing too
Yes I think it's takin' on a new dimension
It's as good as new
My love for you
Just like it used to be and even better
As good as new
Thank God it's true
Darling we were always meant to stay together

Feel like a creep
Never felt so cheap
Never had a notion that my love could be so deep
How could I make
Such a dumb mistake
Now I know I'm not entitled to another break
But please, baby, I beg you to forgive
'Cause I found out that ma-ma-ma-ma ......
My live is here
Gotta have you near

As good as new
My love for you
And keeping it that way is my intention
As good as new
And growing too
Yes I think it's takin' on a new dimension
It's as good as new
My love for you
Just like it used to be and even better
As good as new
Thank God it's true
Darling we were always meant to stay together

I thought that our love was at an end, but here I am again

As good as new
My love for you
And keeping it that way is my intention
As good as new
And growing too
Yes I think it's takin' on a new dimension
It's as good as new
My love for you
Just like it used to be and even better
As good as new
Thank God it's true
Darling we were always meant to stay together

Yes, the love I have for you
Feels as good as new
Darling we were always meant to stay together

2.Voulez-Vous 

People everywhere
A sense of expectation hangin' in the air
Givin' out a spark
Across the room your eyes are glowin' in the dark
And here we go again
We know the start, we know the end
Masters of the scene
We've done it all before
And now we're back to get some more
You know what I mean

Voulez-vous
Take it now or leave it
Now is all we get
Nothing promised no regrets
Voulez-vous
Ain't no big decision
You know what to do
La question c'est voulez-vous
Voulez-vous

I know what you think
The girl means business, so I'll offer her a drink
Lookin' mighty proud
I see you leave me your table, pushin' through the crowd
I'm really glad you came
You know the rules, you know the game
Master of the scene
We've done it all before
And now we're back to get some more
You know what I mean

Voulez-vous
Take it now or leave it
Now is all we get
Nothing promised no regrets
Voulez-vous
Ain't no big decision
You know what to do
La question c'est voulez-vous
Voulez-vous

And here we go again
We know the start, we know the end
Masters of the scene
We've done it all before
And now we're back to get some more
You know what I mean

Voulez-vous
Take it now or leave it
Now is all we get
Nothing promised no regrets
Voulez-vous
Ain't no big decision
You know what to do
La question c'est voulez-vous
Voulez-vous

Voulez-vous, aha, aha, aha
Voulez-vous, aha, aha, aha
Voulez-vous, aha, aha, aha
Voulez-vous, aha, aha, aha

Voulez-vous
Take it now or leave it
Now is all we get
Nothing promised no regrets

Ain't no big decision
You know what to do
La question c'est voulez-vous

Voulez-vous
Take it now or leave it
Now is all we get
Nothing promised no regrets
Voulez-vous
Ain't no big decision
You know what to do
La question c'est voulez-vous

3.I have a dream 

I have a dream, a song to sing
To help me cope with anything
If you see the wonder
Of a fairy tale
You can take the future
Even if you fail
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
If believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I'll cross the stream
I have a dream

I have a dream, a fantasy
To help me trough reality
And my destination
Makes it worth the while
Pushing through the darkness
Still another mile
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I'll cross the stream
I have a dream

I'll cross the stream
I have a dream

I have a dream, a song to sing
To help me cope with anything
If you see the wonder
Of a fairy tale
You can take the future
Even if you fail
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
If believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I'll cross the stream
I have a dream

I'll cross the stream
I have a dream

4.Angeleyes 

Last night I was taking a walk along the river
And I saw him together with a young girl
And the look that he gave her, made me shiver
Cause he always used to look at me that way
And I thought, maybe I should walk right up to her and say
It's a game he likes to play

Look into his angeleyes
One look and you're hypnotized
He'll take your heart and you must pay the price
Look into his angeleyes
You'll think you're in paradise
And one day you'll find out he wears a disguise
Don't look to deep into those angeleyes

Oh, no, no, no, no

Keep thinking 'bout his angeleyes
I keep thinking, aha

Sometimes when I'm lonely, I sit and think about him
And it hurts to remember all the good times
When I thought, I could never live without him
And I wonder, does it have to be the same
Every time when I see him, will it bring back all the pain
How can I forget that name

Look into his angeleyes
One look and you're hypnotized
He'll take your heart and you must pay the price
Look into his angeleyes
You'll think you're in paradise
And one day you'll find out he wears a disguise
Don't look to deep into those angeleyes
Crazy 'bout his angeleyes, angeleyes
He took my heart and now I pay the price

Look into his angeleyes
You'll think you're in paradise
And one day you'll find out he wears a disguise
Don't look to deep into those angeleyes

Oh, no, no, no, no

I keep thinking, I keep thinking 'bout his angeleyes
I keep thinking, I keep thinking I have to pay the price
I keep thinking, keep thinking about his angeleyes
I keep thinking, keep thinking I have to pay the price
I keep thinking

5.The king has lost his crown 

I believe
Your new girl turned you down
And they say
She's pushin' you around

How does it feel
I guess it hurts your pride
Tell me, my friend
How many nights you've cried

Disaster and disgrace
The king has lost his crown
Suddenly
He's clumsy like a clown
The world is upside down
The king has lost his crown

Was it hard
To step down from your thrown
And to know
Tonight you're all alone

Oh what a shame
You really want that girl
She doesn't care
Still you dream of her

Disaster and disgrace
The king has lost his crown
Suddenly
He's clumsy like a clown
The world is upside down
The king has lost his crown

Disaster and disgrace
The world is all around
Suddenly
He's clumsy like a clown
The world is upside down
The king has lost his crown

Disaster and disgrace
The world is all around

B1.Does your mother know 

You're so hot, teasing me
So you're blue, but I can't take the chance
On a chick like you
There's that look in your eyes
I can read in your face that your feelings
Are driving you wild
Ah but girl, you're only a child

Well I could dance with you honey
If you think it's funny
But does your mother know that you're out
And I could chat with you baby
Flirt a little maybe
But does your mother know that you're out

Take it easy, better slow down girl
That's no way to go
Does your mother know
Take it easy, try to cool it girl
Play it nice and slow
Does your mother know

I can see what you want
But you seem pretty young to be searching
For that kind of fun
So maybe I'm not the one
Now you're so cute, I like your style
And I now what you mean when you give me
A flash of that smile
But girl you're only a child

Well I could dance with you honey
If you think it's funny
But does your mother know that you're out
And I could chat with you baby
Flirt a little maybe
But does your mother know that you're out

Take it easy, better slow down girl
That's no way to go
Does your mother know
Take it easy, try to cool it girl
Play it nice and slow
Does your mother know

Well I could dance with you honey
If you think it's funny
But does your mother know that you're out
And I could chat with you baby
Flirt a little maybe
But does your mother know that you're out

Well I could dance with you honey
If you think it's funny
But does your mother know that you're out
And I could chat with you baby
Flirt a little maybe
But does your mother know that you're out

Well I could dance with you honey
If you think it's funny
But does your mother know that you're out
And I could chat with you baby
Flirt a little maybe ....

2.If it wasn't for the nights 

I got appointments, work I have to do
Keepin' me so busy all the day through
They're the things that keep me from thinkin' of you
Oh baby, I miss you so, I know I never gonna make it
Oh I'm so restless, I don't care what I say
And I lose my temper, ten times a day
Still it's even worse when the night's on it's way
It's bad, oh so bad

Somehow I'd be doin' alright if it wasn't for the nights
(If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could make it)
I'd have courage left to fight if it wasn't for the nights
(If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could take it)
How I fear the time when shadows start to fall
Sittin' here alone and starin' at the wall
Even I could see a light if it wasn't for the nights
(Even I could see a light I think that I can make it)
Somehow I'd be doin' alright if it wasn't for the nights
(If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could take it)

No one turn to you, you know how it is
I was not prepared for something like this
Now I see them clearly the things that I miss
Oh baby, I feel so bad, I know I'm never gonna make it
I got my business to help me through the day
People I must write to, bills I must pay
But everything's so different when night's on it's way
It's so bad, oh so bad

Somehow I'd be doin' alright if it wasn't for the nights
(If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could make it)
I'd have courage left to fight if it wasn't for the nights
(If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could take it)
How I fear the time when shadows start to fall
Sittin' here alone and starin' at the wall
Even I could see a light if it wasn't for the nights
(Even I could see a light I think that I can make it)
Guess my future would look bright if it wasn't for the nights
(If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could make it)

If it wasn't for the nights
(If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could take it)
If it wasn't for the nights
(If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could make it)

Even I could see a light if it wasn't for the nights
(Even I could see a light I think that I could make it)
Guess my future would look bright if it wasn't for the nights
(If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could take it)

If it wasn't for the nights
(If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could make it)
If it wasn't for the nights
(If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could take it)

Even I could see a light if it wasn't for the nights
(Even I could see a light I think that I could make it)
Guess my future would look bright if it wasn't for the nights
(If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could take it)

3.Chiquitita 

Chiquitita, tell me what's wrong
You're enchained by your own sorrow
In your eyes there's no hope for tomorrow
How I hate to see you like this
There's no way you can deny it
I can see that you're oh so sad, so quiet

Chiquitita, tell me the truth
I'm a shoulder you can cry on
Your best friend, I'm the one you must rely on
You were always sure of yourself
Now I see you've broken a feather
I hope we can patch it up together

Chiquitita, you and I know
How the heartaches come and they go and the scars they're leavin'
You'll be dancing once again and the pain will end
You will have no time for grievin'

Chiquitia you and I cry
But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you
Let me hear you sing once more like you did before
Sing a new song Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song Chiquitita

So the walls came tumblin' down
And your love's a blown out candle
All is gone and it seems too hard to handle
Chiquitita tell me the truth
There's no way you can deny it
I see that you're oh so sad, so quiet

Chiquitita, you and I know
How the heartaches come and they go and the scars they're leavin'
You'll be dancing once again and the pain will end
You will have no time for grievin'

Chiquitia you and I cry
But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you
Let me hear you sing once more like you did before
Sing a new song Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song Chiquitita

Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song Chiquitita

5.Kisses of fire 

Lay your head on my chest, so you hear every beat of my heart
Now there's nothing at all that can keep us apart
Touch my lips, close your eyes and see with your fingertips
Things that you do and you know I'm crazy 'bout you

Kisses of fire, burning, burning
I'm at the point of no returning
Kisses of fire, no devotions
Caught in a landslide of emotions
I've had my share of love affairs
And they were nothing compared to this
Ooh, I'm riding higher than the sky
And there is fire in every kiss
Kisses of fire
Kisses of fire

When you sleep by my side, I feel safe and I know I belong
Still it's making me scared that my love is so strong
Losing you, it's a nightmare, baby, and to me it's true
Never before did you see me begging for more

Kisses of fire, burning, burning
I'm at the point of no returning
Kisses of fire, no devotions
Caught in a landslide of emotions
I've had my share of love affairs
And they were nothing compared to this
Ooh, I'm riding higher than the sky
And there is fire in every kiss
Kisses of fire
Kisses of fire

Kisses of fire, burning, burning
I'm at the point of no returning
Kisses of fire, sweet devotions
Caught in a landslide of emotions
(Kisses of fire, burning, burning
I'm at the point of no returning)
I'm riding higher than the sky
And there is fire in every kiss

Kisses of fire, burning, burning
I'm at the point of no returning
Kisses of fire, sweet devotions
Caught in a landslide of emotions
Kisses of fire, ......
