AFTER THE BALL
After the ball is over,
After the break of morn,
After the dancers laving
After the start are gone;
Many a heart is aching
If you could read them all,
Many the hopes that have vanished, after the ball.

RETURN TO LIST
AMERICA
I like to be in America,
Okay by me in America.
Ev'rythings free in America,
For a small fee in America!
I like the city of San Juan.
I know a boat you can get on.
Hundreds of flowers in full bloom.
Hundreds of people in each room!

Auto mobile in America,
Chromium steel in America.
Wire spoke wheel in America,
Very big deal in America!
I'll drive a Buick though San Juan.
If there's a road you can drive on.
I'll give my cousins a free ride.
How you fit all of them inside?

Immigrant goes to America,
Many hellos in America.
Nobody knows in America,
Puerto Rico's in America!
When I will go back to San Juan.
When you will shut up and get gone?
I'll give them new washing machine.
What have they got there to keep clean?

I like the shores or America,
Comfort is yours in America.
Knobs on the doors in America,
Wall to wall floors in America!
I'll bring a T.V. to San Juan.
If there's a current to turn on.
Ev'ryone there will give big cheer.
Ev'ryone there will have moved here!

I like to be in America,
Okay by me in America.
Ev'rythings free in America,
For a small fee in America!

THANK HEAVEN FOR LITTLE GIRLS
Each time I see a little girl of five or six or seven
I can't resist a joyous urge to smile and say
Chorus
Thank heaven for little girls
For little girls get bigger ev'ry day
Thank heaven for little girls
They grow up in the most delightful way
Those little eyes so helpless and appealing
One day will flash and send you crashing through the ceiling
Thank heaven for little girls
Thank heaven for them all no matter who no matter where
Without them what would little boys do
Thank heaven, thank heaven
Thank heaven for little girls

RETURN TO LIST
THE ANGEL
The Eiffel Tower of Paris
the mighty Alpine Ridge
The Grand Canal in Venice and the San Francisco Bridge
The Taj Mahal, Niagara Falls are sights second to none
But we know a place that beats em all so come on tell em son!
I know an angel that beckons to me no matter where I roam
She's no Mona Lisa and the Leaning Tower of Pisa
Is better known than the angel in my home
But though I wander all over the world
I'll make it plain to see
I'm a son of Islington where the angel is
That's good enough for me {say it again)
Where the angel is that's good enough for me


RETURN TO LIST
BABIES
Babies, only babies,
But we all have a wonderful time.
Though we're only very young
We know a thing or two,
And get away with lots of things
We shouldn't do.
La da da da da da
Our lives are just sublime.
When I go up to bed each night I really have
to grin,
'Cos mumie comes and kisses me and then she
tucks me in.
Babies, only babies,
But we all have a wonderful time.


RETURN TO LIST
BACK YOUR FANCY
Back your fancy, Back your fancy!
Come and have a gamble,
But look at the price just once or twice Before you join the scramble.
Wait until your chicks are hatched Before you count them up;
There's many a slip between the tip And the horse that wins the cup!


RETURN TO LIST
THE BAD, BAD BOY
Am I my mother's darling?
Am I my father's joy?
No, No, No, I'm a bad, bad boy.
Am I a little sweetheart Who never could annoy?
No, No, No, I'm a bad, bad boy.
I am the king of Mischief,
As I was born to be
And when I tear my trousers,
You'll see much more of me.
Am I a little Angel?
A cherub sweet and coy?
No, No, No, I'm a bad, bad boy!


RETURN TO LIST
THE BAMBAZOOLIAN WAY
Beat on the high drum, beat on the low drum, Rhythm is coming to town.
Clang on the high note, bang on the low note Keep it precise and low down.
On a romantical isle,
Land of fiesta and guile,
Thrills will abound if you take a vacation to Somewhere excitingly new.
CHORUS
Come on to Bambazzoola with me and by the Bambazoolian sea
There's a place to play all night and day on the Bambazoolian Way.
In Bambazoola everythings new we've got a Bambazoola for you.
There's a moon a glow when the lights are low
on the Bambazoolian Way.
What a Tropical island, What a Beautiful Shore
There's a magic in the music of the South Sea Symphony
Who'd be asking for more.
Come on and play you orchestra play
Your beating Tom-Tom we shall obey
And its all romance when the Natives Dance
With a Boogy Woogily Sway
The Bambazoolian Way


RETURN TO LIST
BARN DANCE
This is the time to go a dancing,
One, two, and let the music play,
Swing with your partner, you can sing with your partners as the band plays a merry roundelay.
This is the time when all together we know the way for making hay
All the year we await, and it's great at the fete, when we dance, we're going to dance!
We're going to dance the night away.

BAVARIAN

Come what may
Lifes as bright and gay as can be
There's joy to be found
All summer round night and day
That's the time for play, you71 agree
There's happiness there,
You can banish trouble and care
Finding fun and laughter where'er you may go
For there in the spring young lovers bring songs to sing
And you hear them yodeling hoi d ri ro

But they don't know this tune
So long fare the well pip pip cheerio

BOYS IN BLUE
Now's the time we can raise up a song as we praise the boys in blue.
On patrol in the street, night and day on the beat are the boys in blue.
See them standing on the corner or on point duty in the towns,
You can bet your life there is no doubt,
they're the boys we know that we could never do without
You can feel safe and sound when they're strolling along your Avenue
In a crowd they'll be there with an eye for the care of the likes of you.
Out in ev'ry sort of weather, ev'ry hour; there's something new.
Let us then cheer the men who are Law and Order Boys in Blue.



RETURN TO LIST
BROTHERS OF THE SKY
We are the sky-high Boys—We are a band of brothers,
What do we care when we're up in the air
And we're piloting into the blue?
Fly with the Sky-high Boys. Fly with a
band of brothers,
These are the rights, we can share the delights,
In the dizziest heights of the blue.
Building a new tomorrow—Leaving the world down below.
Through the far away of the star-way— And we don't give up for any foe,
Proud are the Sky-high Boys! Envy of all the others.
We are the kings with the magic wings,
We're brothers of the sky.

BUGSY MALONE
He's a sinner, candy coated,
For all his friends, he always seems to be alone.
But they love him,
Bugsy Malone.
City Slicker, He can charm you with a style all of his own,
Everybody loves that man,
Bugsy Malone.
Hot headed Bugsy makes his mind up,
Don't mess with Bugsy or you'll wind up,
Wishing you'd left well enough alone.
He's a man a mountain he's a rolling stone.
And will he leave you sad and lonely crying
I couldn't say but its known,
That everybody wants that man
Bugsy Malone

BAD GUYS
We could've been anything we wanted to be
But don't it make your heart glad
That we decided, a fact we take pride in
To become the best at being bad
We could've been anything we wanted to be
With all the talent we had
No doubt about it, we whine and we pout it
We're the very best at being guys
We're rotten to the core
And my congratulations no one likes you any more
Bad guys, we're the very worst
Each of us contemptible, we're criticised and cursed
We made the big time, malicious and mad
We're the very best at being bad
We could've been anything we wanted to be
We took the easy way out
With little training, we mastered complaining
Manners seemed unnecessary
We're so rude, it's almost scary
We could've been anything that we wanted to be
With all the talent we had
With little practice, we made every black list
We're the very best at being bad
We're the very best at being bad
We're the very best at being bad

DOWN AND OUT
Down, down, down, down, down, down, down and out
Down, down, down, down, down, down, down and out
Down, down, down, down, down, down, down and out
Down, down, down, down, down, down, down and out
You don't have to sit around
Complaining 'bout the way your life has wound up
Think of all the time you waste
And time's a precious thing to let roll by
Sure you've hit the bottom
But remember you'll be building from the ground up
Every day's another step that takes you even closer to the sky, so give a try
Down, down, down, down, down, down, down and out
Down, down, down, down, down, down, down and out
You don't have to sit around
Depressed about the way that luck deceived you
Fortune sailed away, you missed that boat
And found that you'd been left behind
Fight and fight some more
Until you know the world is ready to receive you
Lady luck is fickle but a lady is allowed to change her mind
You don't have to sit around
Complaining 'bout the way your life has wound up
So be a man you know you can't be certain
That you'll lose until you try
We as one shout
Up, up, up and out

RETURN TO LIST
Give A Little love
She's the kind who says goodbye to houses
When she's leaving them for good
Thinks about the beauty of the forest
When she burns a piece of wood
Says hello to strangers
And every hungry stray weighs on her mind
Sees good in everybody
That few of us would take the time to find
She says every act of kindness
Is a little bit of love we leave behind
She's the kind who lays awake and worries
When the headline tensions grow
Thinks about the unborn generations
And a time she'll never know
Seems it's always after midnight
When we talk it out and slowly both unwind
She says every act of kindness
Is a little bit of love we leave behind
That has passed our way
Serves to light every day
And in time will stay
Like a golden ghost in our mind
So when we have gone
What we do lives on
You know every act of kindness
Is a little bit of love we leave behind

RETURN TO LIST
BULL AND BUSH
Talk about the shade of the sheltering palm,
Praise the bamboo tree with its wide spreading charm;
There's a little nook down our old Hampstead Town,
You know the place, it has won great renown.
Often with my sweet heart on a bright summer's day.
To the little pub there my footsteps will stray,
If she hesitates when she looks at the sign,
Promptly I whisper, "Now, do not decline,"
In the little parlour on a cold winter's night.
All is very cheerful, so snug and so bright;
Nell looks me but now with a frown,
She would not change with the Queen and her crown.
It was there I first met the joy of my life,
She gave her troth and is now my dear wife,
Her eyes always glisten when she sees the old sign,
So all of you join in a glass of good wine.
CHORUS
Come, come, come and make eyes at me
Down at the old Bull and Bush.
Come, come, drink some port with me
Down at the old Bull and Bush.
Hear the little German Band,
Just let me hold your hand, dear.
Do, do come and have a drink to two
Down the old Bull and Bush.

BURLINGTON BERTIE FROM BOW
I'm Bert, P'raps you've heard of me,
Bert, you've had word of me,
Jogging along, heartly and strong, living on plates of fresh air.
I dress up in fashion, and when I am feeling pressed,
I shave from my cuff all the whiskers and fluff,
Stick my hat on and toddle up West.

I'm Burling Beartie, I rise at ten thirty and saunter along like a toff.
I walk down the Strand with my gloves on my hand, then I walk down again with them off.
I'm all airs and graces, correct easy paces, with out food so long I've forgot where my face is!
I'm Bert, Bert, I haven't a shirt, but my people are well off, you know!
Nearly ev'ry one knows me, from Smith to Lord Roseb'ry,
I'm Burlington Bertie from Bow!

I stroll with Lord Hurlington, roll in the Burlington,
Call for champagne, walk out again, come back and borrow the ink.
I live most expensive, like Tom Lipton I'm in the swim.
He's got so much 'off' that he sleeps on the roof, and I live in the room over him.

I'm Burling Beartie, I rise at ten thirty and saunter along Temple Bar.
As round there I skip, I keep shouting "Pip! Pip!" and the darn'd fools think I'm in my car.
At Rothchild's I swank it, my body I plank it on his front doorstep with 'The Mail' for a blanket,
I'm Bert, Bert, and Rothchild was hurt, He said "You can't sleep there!" I said, "Oh!"
He said "I'm Rothchild, sonny!" I said, "That's damn'd funny,
I'm Burlington Bertie from Bow!"

I smile, condescendly while they're extending me cheer up on cheer,
When I appear, Captain with my Polo team.
So strict are my people, they're William the Conqueror's strain.
If they ever knew I'd been stalking to you why, they'd never look at me again.
I'm Burlington bertie, I rise at ten thirty and reach Kempton Park about three.
I stand by the rail when a horse is for sale, and you ought to see Wooton watch me.
I lean on some awning while lord Derby's yawning, then he bids "Two thousand," and I bid "Good morning,"
I'm Bert, Bert, I'd buy one, a Cert, but where could I keep it, you know!
I can't let my man see me in bed with a GeeGee!
I'm Burlington bertie from Bow!
My pose, though I ronical, shows that my monocle holds up my face, keeps it in place, stops it from slipping away.
Cigars, I smoke thousands, I usually deal in the strand,
But you've got to take care when you're getting them there, or some idiot might stand on your hand.
I'm Burlington Bertie I rise at ten thirty then Buckingham Palace I view.
I stand in the yard while they're changing the Guard, and the king shouts across "Toodle-oo,"
The Prince of Wales' brother, along with some other, slaps me on the back and says " Come and see mother."
I'm Bert, Bert, and Royalty's hurt, when they ask me to dine, I say "No!
I've just had a banana with Lady Diana,
I'm Burlington Bertie from Bow!

CAMPANOLOGY
Verse
There's a village hidden deep in the valley
Among the Pine trees half forlorn
And there on a sunny morning little
Jimmy Brown was born
So his parents took him to the chapel
When he was only one day old
And the priest blessed the little fellow
Welcome Jimmy to the fold.
Chorus
All the chapel bells were ringing
In the little valley town.
And the song that they were singing
Was for baby Jimmy Brown.
Then the little congregation
Prayed for guidance from above.
Lead us not into temptation,
Bless this hour of meditation,
Guide him with eternal love.
Verse 1
There's a village hidden deep in the valley,
Beneath the mountains high above.
And there, twenty years thereafter,
Jimmy Brown was to meet his love.
Many friends were gathered in the chapel,
And many tears of joy were shed.
In June on a Sunday morning,
When Jimmy and his bride were wed.

RETURN TO LIST
Chorus
All the chapel bells were ringing,
Twas a great day in his life.
Cause the song that they were singing,
Was for jimmy and his wife.
Then the little congregation,
Prayed for guidance from above,
Lead us not into temptation,
Bless O Lord this celebration,
May there lives be filled with Love.
Verse 3
From the village hidden deep in the valley,
One rainy moming dark and grey.
A Soul winged its way to heaven,
Jimmy Brown had passed away.
Silent people gathered in the Chapel,
To say farewell to their old friend,
Whose life had been like a flower,
Budding blooming to the end.
Chorus
Just a lonely bell was ringing,
In the little valley town.
Twas farewell that they were singing,
To our good old Jimmy Brown.
And the little congregation
Prayed for guidance from above,
Lead us not into temptation,
May this soul find the salvation,
Of thy great eternal love

CASTLE ON A CLOUD
There is a castle on a cloud
I like to go there in my sleep
Aren't any floors for me to sweep
Not in my castle on a cloud.

There is a room that's full of toys
There are a hundred boys and girls
Nobody shouts or talks too loud
Not in my castle on a cloud.

There is a lady all in white
Holds me and sings a lullaby
She's nice to see, and she's soft to touch
She says: 'Cosette I love you very much.'

I know a place where no one's lost
I know a place where no one cries
Crying at all is not allowed
Not in my castle on a cloud.

Here's an invitation to a celebration we would like you all to share:
in a mini or a maxi you can come by train or taxi
but we want you there:
It is our intention for a new dimension with a mod,
and way-out flair
You will hear the band play for-te,
there's a reason for the for-ty so beware.

CHORUS
Put on your best bib and tucker, all your trendy gear,
Join in the party, the moments here to celebrate
this great big wonderful year: Celebration!
Thro'all the lucky years that fortune gave
This is the right time for having a rave:
We still are riding on the crest of a wave,
it's celebration time tonight.
Once in a lifetime, Once in a lifetime,
You've got to follow your star,
And we know it, without a doubt,
We've got something to shout about,
Tonights a night when the lights are bright for ev'ryone
When ev'ry spotlight is a midnight sun:
Been a long Time, but it's clear now,
that it's here. Yes, here now,
it's celebration, yes, celebration tonight!
Put on your. . .

You'll make her wear her prettiest gown If you can clown, clown, clown,
You'll be so hard to beat, As you line up with the elite,
And you can be the man about town, If you can clown, clown, clown,
Things wonderful, things beautiful, They're there to be found.

COMING HOME
Coming home at the end of the day when the twilight is fading away,
There's a welcome smile in a little while
Waiting there at the end of the day.
When the sun's going down in the West,
You go home to the ones you love best.
There is nothing more you've been longing for
When you're home at the end of the day.
Shadows of the evening come silent and still,
And softly, on the prairie the Angelus is ringing from the hill.
In a cabin where shadows can play—from the firelight to charm you away,
There are joys to share and a rocking chair,
Oh a man is a king who can say:
Coming home, coming home. at the end of the day.

Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend
The French are glad to die for love
They delight in fighting duels
But I prefer a man who lives and gives expensive jewels
A kiss on the hand may be quite continental
But diamonds are a girl's best friend
A kiss may be grand but it won't pay the rental on your humble flat
Or help you at the automat
Men grow cold as girls grow old and we all lose our charms in the end
But square cut or pear shaped these rocks don't lose their shape
Diamonds are a girl's best friend
TIFFANYS! CARTIER! Black Star, Rossgorm,
Talk to me Harry Winston - tell me all about it!
There may come a time when a lass need her lawyer
But diamonds are a girl's best friend
There may come a time when a hard boiled employer thinks
You're awful nice but get that ice or else no dice
He's your guy when stocks are high
But beware when they start to descend
Its then that those louses go back to their spouses
Diamonds are a girl's best friend
I've heard of affairs that are strictly platonic
But diamonds are a girl's best friend
And I think affairs that you must keep blousonic are better bets
If little fets get big baguettes
Time rolls on and youth is gone and you can't straighten up when you bend
But stiff back or stiff knees you stand straight at Tiffany's
Diamonds...diamonds... I don't need rhinestones
But diamonds are a girl's best...best friend

DISC BUYERS
Verse 1
Everyone knows that kids today buy CD's by the score,
They know what they want and what they're paying for.
They know all the hit tunes and what their ratings are.
And have their favourite star.
Chorus
Gimme the voice of Robbie Williams,
I buy them all of Celine Dion.
I like the Manics,
I like Madonna,
I go for Elton John.
Gimme the discs of Ronan Keating
For that's where my money's spent.
Shaggy's the one for me
But I much prefer Old Sir Cliff Richard.
Verse 2
Years ago there were Gramophones, they always had to wind,
Change the needle every time it must have been a bind.
Then they'd play a hundred times a choirboy singing of
"Oh for the Wings of a Dove".
Verse 3
What an event it was in olden days to play a tune!
Silently they'd listen as they sat around the room.
Suddenly there'd be a shout you'd hear all over town,
"LOOK OUT IT'S RUNNING DOWN"
Verse 4
Mothers and dads don't understand and Grandma thinks we're mad
They just can't get with it and its very very sad.
They had vinyl discs of seventy-eight or thirty-three.
Now music's on CD!
Verse 5
There was a disturbance in our street not long ago,
For in our home music's the love, different sounds wouldn't you know.
There was dance; there was Rock, and some Oh what a din.
Neighbours were in a spin.
Verse 6
When Dad was young, vinyl discs were heavy as a brick,
Then the LP's and EP's and singles would sell so quick.
CD or minidisk, playing or being a singer.
Music is the winner.
Verse 7
Say what you like though times have changed as obviously they would
All the kids today are every bit as good.
Try to understand us we are modern and behave,
So lets all have a rave
EVERYBODY MUST HAVE SOMEONE
Everybody must have someone,
someone they can call their own.
All your troubles lighten,
life begins to brighten and you know you'll never be alone,
believe me, when you know your someone's someone.
All the dreams you dream are coming true,
for no-one had to tell me who my someone was when I found you.

Whether up in the saddle or not
And the people they stare at me so

Last year I thought I'd treat myself to a holiday by the sea
So I went and my quarters I fixed
Then I found that the bathing was mixed
So I galloped away to a bathing machine

And soon I felt at home with the girls in the water
And joined in their frivolous play
They are beautiful creatures, but, Lor!
How they giggled as soon as they saw.... me

No one knows what trails they go through,
Collecting props and costumes, scripts and music,
Just to have a decent show to bring to you.
1. We're just the slaves of the Gang Show,
We are the folk who do the work,

As your Producer I'm relieved to hear the audience clap,
Cos if it is a flop then I'm the one who'll take the rap,

Whil'st glaring at the Orchestra who make too much darned noise
Oh! Gang Show slaves are we.
3. We're just the slaves of the Gang show,

With adverts, posters, bills and raffle tickets, five a bob,
If anyone should interfere I just shout "shut your………." (shout "Hey")
Oh! Gang Show slaves are we.

Night after night we do our bit.

With nerves on edge and tempers frayed we argue and we shout,
We often wonder what the blinkin' Show is all about,

It's no good, we've been hooked, and we'll never get free,

HOLD YOUR HAND OUT NAUGHTY BOY!
At the club one ev'ning Jones was telling all his pain
How much he hated girls, despised their golden curls.
"You boy! Last night in the pain moonlight I saw yer!
I saw yer! With a nice girl in the park
You were strolling full of joy,
And you told her you'd never kissed a girl before
Hold your hand out, naughty boy!"

HONG KONG BLUES
Verse 1
You can go to New Orleans on any dancing floor,
Merseyside or Trinidad or down to Bangalore.
But you'll find no other school
Like ours so sample it cool.
Verse 2
We can sail the seven seas, to cities big and small
But beyond a doubt this is our favourite port of call.
When it's shore leave we can go
And here you've got the lot so

Come on you music master, we want to hear the sound
And you know the style we're going to choose,
For there's nothing in the land - anywhere you go to beat the band
Who plays ~The Hong Kong Blues"
This is the kind of music, keeping the midnight sun
Dancing through the hours he wouldn't lose
For there isn't any beat that was ever heard on Basin Street
Good as "The Hong Kong Blues ~
They play it high and then they play it sweet and low down
It's got a sound nobody ever heard before
And then you shuffle like your lazy
And your head is feeling hazy but your crazy for more
No maner where you come from no maner where you go
And it doesn't matter where you've been
You can travel up and down - but you've got to go to China Town
To hear that "Hong Kong",
(I said the "Hong Kong")
To hear the "Hong Kong Blues"

IT MAKES YOU THINK
We know the men of science all intend to make things hum,
But will it all be for our good? This shape of things to come
Or is it going to cause a lot of pandemonium?

It makes you think

As we're the blokes who really stand to win or lose the most
Suppose one day they shrivel up the world from coast to coast?
All we can do is let them and just giggle as we roast.

It makes you think.

Progress may be a wonderful thing,
they aim to reach the top.
It's O.K. to discover things, but will they know when to stop.
To get to Yankee land in half an hour perhaps is great,
America will be as near as our old garden gate,
But will Old England then become their fifty second State?

Forgetting Father Time and all the things

Heard the heavens filled with shouting and there rained a ghastly dew,
From the nation airy navies grappling in the central blue.
For along the worldwide whisper of the south wind rushing warm
With the standards of the people plunging thro the thunder storm
Till the war drums throbbed no longer and the battle flags were furled
In the Parliament of man the federation of the world.

Make friends with people let everyone know
People are people anywhere you may go
Over the skyline far over the sea There,

Make friends with people wherever they are
Til' the war drums are no longer and the battle flags are furled

right away you're fancy free.
Oh it's good to stride through the countryside
Where Mother Nature's holding sway.
And you feel like kings when a skylark sings,
Ev'ry mile is like another holiday as we hike along our way
In the merry month of May.

MONEY AND FRIENDS(MONEY)
Money, money, money, money
everybody wants money
What's the good of living if your poor
And the wolves are knocking at your door
We'll take all that life can give
We want to live, live, live, live, live
You can do what you like when your rich
You can carve out a wonderful niche
You have little concern when there's nothing to earn
And you've plenty of money you can burn
Paying cash for a Rolls Royce at Rootes
Wearing expensively tailor made suits
Folk will know who you are when you drive in your car
And they see you in Claridges Bar
You can argue how you like but money means a lot
Doesn't matter who you are today it's what you've got
You can take it from me when I say
That the only infallible way to be certain to know
If you're loaded with dough you're O.K.
MONEY AND FRIENDS
(FIENDS)
You can get along without money
You can lose your dividends
You can get by without lots of things but
You gotta have friends
You can do without an umbrella
Take what the weather man sends
You can do without a winter overcoat
But you can't do without friends
Loads of diamonds you may have but if you're on your own
What good's a million quid in your pocket if you're all alone
Tell the world and his neighbour happiness depends
Not on the number of your house
Or on the number of your car
But on the number of your friends

Money Money
Money makes the world go around,
the world go around, the world go around,
Money makes the world go around,
it makes the world go round.
A mark, a yen, a buck or a pound,
a buck or a pound, a buck or a pound,
Is all that makes the world go around,
that clinking clanking sound,
Can make the world go round.
If you happen to be rich, and you feel like a night's entertainment,
You can pay for a gay escapade.
If you happen to be rich, and alone and you need a companion,
You can ring ting-a-ling for the maid.
If you happen to be rich and you find you are left by your lover,
Tho you moan and you groan quite a lot,
You can take it on the chin,
call a cab and begin to recover on your fourteen carat yacht.
Money makes the world go around,
the world go around, the world go around,
Money makes the world go around,
of that we both are sure.
(Raspberry) On being poor.
When you haven't any coal in the stove and you freeze in the winter
And you curse to the wind at your fate.
When you haven't any shoes on your feet and your coat's thin as paper
And you look thirty pounds underweight,
When you go to get a word of advice from the fat little pastor,
he will tell you to love evermore.
But when hunger comes to rap, rat-a-tat, rat-a-tat, at the window
See how love flies out the door.
For money makes the world go around, the world go around,
the world go around.
Money makes the world go around,
the clinking, clanking sound
of Money, money, money, money,
Money, money, money, money,
Get a little, get a little,
Money, money, money, money,
Mark, a yen, a buck or a pound,
That clinking, clanking clunking sound
is all that makes the world go round,
It makes the world go round.

MUMS
Verse 1
I'm sure you all realise we have Mothers.
(We don't pretend that's confidential news).
But very, very often they're a puzzle
and constantly they baffle and confuse
Chorus 1
What is the mystery about our mothers?
Why is it they are seldom wrong?
How do they know (before you know) you're likely to be ill?
And give you castor oil a Beecham's powder or a pill?
And when you try to tell them some old story,
They fix you with a knowing look that stuns.
How do they know the very things you thought they didn't know?
Because they're Mums.
Chorus 2
It seems to me you can't get over mothers.
They always seem to be one step ahead.
Why is it when you answer back she looks at you?
And says; "Now one more word, my son, and you'll get up them stairs"?
We know they are always there when they are wanted,
And always seem to take whatever comes.
Why is it they always find the things you try to hide?
Because they're Mums.
Chorus 3
When we get ready for the Scout on Fridays,
She watches me and looks me up and down.
And then she'll say, "You're not going out like that,
So if you please, go up and wash your dirty neck and scrub your filthy knees,
So back again you go up to the bathroom, and glad you're out of sight of your chums
But when you come downstairs again, why does she glow with pride?
Because she's MUM.
Verse 2
It's been the same through every generation,
And that's the way we hope it will remain.
But every now and then we sit and wonder,
And all these funny thoughts crop up again.
Chorus 4
They always seem to know just what you're thinking.
Their eyes just seem to follow you around.
Why is it that they always seem to know what you're about?
When you've done something stupid, how the deuce do they find out?
When you're going out on your first romance,
Your mother adds you up like simple sums, and when you've gone.
Why do they cry and say "Oh dad he's started!"
Because they're Mums.
Chorus 5
If we're invited somewhere for a weekend,
Of course we've got to have clean underwear.
And if you try to argue well we never stand a chance,
But who do they expect to see us in our under-pants?
Yet where would fellers be without their mothers?
Since we were in our prams and sucked our thumbs,
We know without a doubt there's only one thing we can say
HOO-RAY FOR MUMS.!
NEVER SMILE AT A CROCODILE
Never smile at a crocodile,
No you can't get friendly with a crocodile,
Don't be taken in by his welcome grin,
He's imagining how well you'd fit within his skin.

NOBODY KNOWS
Now look at me, a traveller who's always on his own;
My luck is out, it's always out, but why I've never known.
Just what it's like to be like me and very much alone
Nobody knows, nobody knows.
No sun comes out to shine for me, it hides behind a cloud;
A smile for me, a cheery word is some how not allowed,
And what it's like to be a feller lonely in a crowd
Nobody knows, nobody knows.
If you are wondering why I've got such hustered eyes,
It's just because I'm always dodging custard pies.
The rolling road for motor cars is laid out wide and neat
It's not for me, I have to take the by-ways for my feat
I shuffle on, then rest a while to ease my aching feet,
Nobody knows, no body knows.

Secretly he'd buy it, and drink it on the quiet
And dream he was an earl wiv a girl on his knee.

Displays her pretty ankles to all of the men.

ON THEIR WAY TO BED
We're eight little kids on our way to bed
but we strongly disagree
That eight little kids should be sent to bed
When we've only just had tea
You grown-ups who like a drink or two
And stay up very late
But we like a coke so it's not a joke
When send to bed at eight
It don't seem fair that you out there
Can stay up half the night
While we are cursed with a bloomin thirst
Are told to switch off the light
We're eight little kids but we don't feel tired
In the very least degree,
So why should we all be sent to bed,
When we'd rather watch t.v.
When parents know there's a super show,
Just an hour or so ahead,
They become severe and they'll say "now dear,
It's time you went to bed"
It doesn't seem right, with your failing sight,
To watch that tiny screen,
While we with eyes need exercise,
Are in bed by 8.15.

And couldn't concentrate at all,

Wouldn't it be terrific if we saw a movie show
But if you'll say you'll come you rnustn't tell our mum,
She wouldn't understand at all—
You will? Oh gosh, that's super duper,
Meet you at the end of the Garden Wall.

Ah well, the big day's here rny tummy's feeling queer,
And now whatever may befall
I need not come to gaze with longing
Over the Garden Wall.

But to the church I've got to crawl,
I pray the choir boys won't start singing
Over the Garden Wall.

Of course if you stayed home the same would happen
We know that we should look a funny mob
Without a penny coming in the kitty

That radiates a warming kind of cheer
It totals up to something like affection
And makes us want to meet again another year.

I use them, fighting for what is right.
Verse 2 - Little John

Blow, Blow the weather, put out to sea,
Sea Scouting is the life for me.
Breezes a-blowing, so fancy free,
Sea Scouting is the life for me.
I go down to the sea in ships whilst the wind
blows through my hair,
And the spray leaps along my way
Just to let me know it's there.
Out on the billows I long to be,
Free, sailing on the open sea,
No doubt about it, it's plain to see,
Sea Scouting is the life for me
'Cos I'm fancy free, on the briny sea,
That's the life for me.

Verse 1
I don't mind the winds of March that blow around my door
I close my eyes and dream about, the things we have in store.
In Spring a young man's fancy turns to thoughts of love they say
So I'm content to wait until that happy day, when you.......
Chorus
Walk with me in the springtime
Through the Golden Daffodils
Hear the song of a Blackbird sweet and strong
By a stream that sparkles down the hills
Through a wood full of Bluebells keep me always by your side
We'll remember with a smile, that in just a little while
We shall walk in Springtime again.
Verse 2
Now the sleepy buds of May are bursting into bloom
We know quite soon we shall enjoy the warmth of flaming June.
The Sunny days of August and the pleasant Summer nights
Are moments in my lifetime, that bring great delight, when you....
Chorus
Walk with me in the summer
Down some leaty country lane
Where the rose, and the honeysuckle blows
On a gentle summer night again.
Through the long golden evenings,
Keep me always by your side.
As the sea laps on the sand and we stand there hand in hand,
We shall walk in Summer again.
Verse 3
When the leaves of Summer turn to red and brown and gold
We drive into the country and the lovely views unfold
The misty days of autumn bring me joy beyond compare
For I enjoy the mornings with that nippy air. when vou.
Chorus
Walk with me in the Autumn
Gather brambles in the glade
Take my arm as we wander through the park
As the evening shadows softly fade
Through the mists of November, keep me always by your side
When we stroll into the town and the leaves come whirling down
We shall walk in the Autumn again.
Verse 4
When I see the snow Flakes drifting by my window pane
As darkness falls we settle by the fireside once again.
The bright and frosty mornings and the sound of Christmas chimes
For me are just a prelude to those happy times when you .......
Chorus Walk with me in the Winter
Leave our footprints in the snow
See the lake where we used to love to skate
When we were children long ago
Through the dark of December, keep me always by your side,
Just as I'm with you in our cosy world for two
We shall walk in Winter again.
Final Chorus.
Walk with me through the seasons
Summer Autumn Winter Spring
Down the lanes where we watch the seasons change
We shall stand to hear the church bells ring
Through a world ever changing one thing always stays the same
When the wintry days are gone and the birds burst into song
We shall walk in Springtime talk in Springtime Walk in Springtime again!

Winter Wonderland
Verse
Over the ground lies a mantle of white,
A heaven of diamonds shine down through the night.
Two hearts are thrilling in spite of the chill in the weather.
Love knows no season, love knows no clime,
Romance can blossom any old time.
Here in the open we're walking and hoping together
Chorus
Sleigh bells ring are you listenin
In the lane snow is glistenin
A beautiful sight We're happy tonight
Walkin in a winter wonderland
Gone away is the bluebird
Here to stay is the new bird
He sings a love song as we go along
Walking in a winter wonderland.
In the meadow we can build a snowman
Then pretend that he is Parson Brown
He'll say are you married we'll say no man
But you can do the job when you're in town
Later on we'll conspire
As we dream by the fire
To face unafraid the plans that we made
Walkin in a winter wonderland.

SILVER BELLS
Christmas makes you feel emotional.
It may bring parties or thoughts devotional.
Whatever happens or what may be,
Here is what Christmas time means to me.

City sidewalks, busy sidewalks dressed in holiday style.
In the air there's a feeling of Christmas.
Children laughing, people passing, meeting smile after smile,
And on ev'ry street corner you hear:

Silver bells, silver bells, it's Christmas time in the city.
Ring-a-ling hear them ring,
Soon it will be Christmas day.

Strings of street lights, even stop lights blink a bright red and green,
As the shoppers rush home with their treasures.
Hear the snow crunch, see the kids bunch, this is Santa's big scene,
And above all this bustle you hear:

Silver bells, silver bells, it's Christmas time in the city.
Ring-a-ling hear them ring,
Soon it will be Christmas day.

And I'm ready for love.

I'll walk down the lane
With a happy refrain,
And singin', just singin' in the rain.

SKELETON IN THE CUPBOARD
There's an old deserted mansion
On an old deserted road
Where the better ghosts and goblins always hang out
And one night they threw a party a la mode
And they cordially invited all the gang out
At a dark bewitching hour
When the fun was loud and hearty
A notorious wallflower
Became the life of the party.
Chorus
The spooks were having their midnight fling
The merry making was in full swing
They shrieked themselves into a cheerful trance
When the skeleton in the cupboard started to dance
A goblin giggled with fiendish glee
A shout rang out from a big banshee
Amazement was in every ghosts glance
When the skeleton in the cupboard started to dance
All the witches were in stitches
While his steps made rhythmic thumps
And they nearly dropped their broomsticks
When he tried to do the bumps
You never heard such unearthly laughter
Or such hilarious groans
When the skeleton in the cupboard
Rattled his bones

Wherever you mention it's Home Sweet Home to someone

Wherever you mention it's Home Sweet Home to Someone
It may be Durham or Grange-on-Sand, or else Newcastle or Sunderland,
Wherever you mention it's Home Sweet Home to Someone
Maybe there's someone thrilled to the hilt,
Just to roam in the Gloaming and to see the wiggle waggle of the kilt
Maybe with Pompey your heart is full, or else it's Derby or p'raps it's Hull,
Wherever you mention it's Somebody's Home Sweet Home.
It may be Yarmouth or Grimsby Town,
Or some small spot on the Sussex Down
Wherever you mention it's Home Sweet Home to Someone.

Wherever you mention, it's Home Sweet Home to Someone
Home is where the heart is—Home is where we'd be,

Full of vim and vigour and immense vitality.
But there is a snag, my friends, so judge us not in vain.

My father plays rugger, my brother plays rugger, my uncle is a rugger blue
My cousin plays rugger, my mother plays rugger and I'm supposed to too.
The vicar plays rugger, he preaches on rugger;
Says other games are wrong.
I'm always going thro' it; I never want to do it;
I only want to play ping pong! There's lots of ways to play ping pong!
Verse 2
My father plays cricket - my brother plays cricket,
My cousin is a fielder too.
My uncle is a batsman - my Auntie is a bowler,
So what else can I do?
My sister loves cricket - my hamster likes cricket,
My girlfriend says I'm wrong.
But as for every wicket - I don't care where they stick it
I only want to play ping pong.
Verse 3
My father likes rowing - my brother likes rowing,
My friend is in a college crew.
There's no sense in rowing - you can't see where you're going.
Nobody's got a clue.
They pull without stopping - until they are dropping,
Each course is much too long.
And I don't want to shiver - through falling in the river,
I only want to play ping pong.
 
 
Verse 4
My father likes climbing - my brother likes climbing,
It's wonderful the things they've done.
But halfway up Ben Nevis - then falling down a crevice,
I can't see that's much fun.
But if you should fumble, you must take a tumble
And a slide down the mountain's long.
And then you find you've got 'em - lots of bruises on your bottom,
I only want to play ping pong.
 
Verse 5
My father plays soccer - my brother plays soccer,
And all they talk about is goals.
I don't like a 'knocker' - but I'm sick of soccer,
I wish they'd all play bowls!
It's off-side and on-side, the ref is on one side,
All his decisions wrong.
But 'til they cut the training in fog and snow and raining,
I only want to play ping pong.
Verse 6
My father likes swimming - my brother likes swimming,
My family are all swimming folk.
My Ma's not afraid of - to show what she's made of,
But I can't swim a stroke.
If I start diving - you'd see me arriving
Knocked out and wouldn't live for long.
Maybe you think I oughta - but I don't like the water,
I only want to play ping pong.
Verse 7
My father's a wrestler - my brother's a wrestler,
My Grandmother's a wrestler too.
You never saw such capers - she wrestles with neighbours,
Her 'holds' are just like glue.
She knows who the boss is - she throws and she tosses,
She says it makes her strong.
She told me I must practice my wrestling but the fact is,
I only want to play ping pong.
 
Verse 8
Our father's may like it - our mother's may like it,
But let us tell you all some news.
It's high time we should be - and high time we could be
Allowed to pick and choose.
We won't spread confusions - so don't get illusions
About this little song.
So give us your attention - we fear we didn't mention
The way we like to play ping pong
Oh! There's lots of ways to play ping pong

We'll remember these wonder memories and a song will be singing in our hearts.
Three cheers for years and the best time of our lives.

We're gonna shout out again, the Gang is about again,
And that means we're hitting the high,

Straight in for the go.

Every night a night of delights;
Get in the swim boys, you're ready and fit,
Make it a bull's eye a rollicking hit,
And long before the curtain falls you'll

Tonight is the night of all nights.

TOP OF THE MORNING FEELING
Verse 1
Though you may sail the world over,
Millions of miles you may roam.
When you've been here a day,
I'll tell you right away,
You'll never want to go home.
Chorus
Where you see where the Shannon flows,
In the land where the Shamrock grows,
Before you can count "nine"
You'll get that "Top of the Morning Feeling" and it's fine.
All the girls wear a lovely smile
Ev'rywhere in the Emerald Isle
As they fall into line
You'll get that "Top of the Morning Feeling" and it's fine.
Walking over a field of clover, you're not a rover alone.
You'll find company and very soon you'll be
Kissing the Blarney Stone.
There's an eyeful in ev'ry scene.
Nowhere else in the world as green
All, all of it's mine,
In (moon1974 ) (rain2002) or sunshine.
You'll get that "Top of the Morning Feeling" and it's fine.

Nothing compares with Old Ireland,
We've got the finest of tours.
We'll make it merry and easy to understand
The luck of the Irish is yours

TROUBLE'S ROLLING DOWN THE

Trouble's rolling down the river,
Trouble's rolling down the river,
Trouble's rolling down the river.
But it ain't going to sink my boat.
I see coming down the river,
Heading my way down the river,
Lots of trouble down the rolling river But I'm still going to keep afloat,
Cos it ain't going to sink my boat.
No it ain't going to sink my boat.
I knew trouble was a-dawning,
I could see a certain warning,
I saw red sky in the morning,
But it ain't going to sink my boat,
I shall keep on keeping on from now to Judgment Day.
To the storm, the wind, the rain I look at them all and say.
Who's afraid of any river
Roll the troubles in the river
Then I'll drown them in the rolling river and I'll row on and keep afloat,
'Cos they ain't going to sink my boat,
No they ain't going to sink my boat.

WEST IS WILD
Now sit tight people don't you make a fuss
There are ain't men living who are wuss than us
For law and order well we ain't aware
We just love killing and we jist don't care.

Giddy up giddy up get in the saddle boys
Ride em cowboy ride em do
We all live in the big country
Where the west is wild and the women are too

We're bad bad fellers so we git no thanks
They close up the dance hall and they lock the banks
The streets all empty when they know we're round
The Sheriff takes a holiday when we hit town.
Giddy up etc
I'm known to everybody as a rough tough Bill
Quick on the trigger and I shoots to kill
You know why I'm tougher than the rest who ride
My mother was Bonny and me father was Clyde
Giddy up etc
We just don't worry if a lot gets done
For we jist figger out that shootin's fun
We kill two dozen in a couple of hours
But when they gits buried , we always send flowers

With half a million cows he says he's full
But Durn me that's an awful lot of Bull.

And we've been pleasured quite a bit and so
Meet all your friends and you can tell them then

WHEN A BAND STARTS TO PLAY
When you hear a band begin to play,
All along the way, people shout Hoo Ray,
There's a thrill that floats upon the air,
Ev'ry time a band begins to play.
There's a magic moment when it comes,
And you hear the thunder of the drums,
There's a feeling all along the way,
Fine and dandy when a band begins to play.
Then, over the music, you see them arrayed,
And on the march the flags are flying,
Follow the big parade,
So, play boys, play boys, let the air abound,
With the trumpets sound,
Every where around,
And with the tune we're soon sent right away,
When ever a band starts to play.

Ev'rything's been going right,
No matter if it's late Who wants to say Goodnight ?
When you're with a certain someone, who can set your heart alight.
And you are in the mood Who wants to say 'Goodnight' ?
For the time and place don't matter, Even though the day is done,
You'd rather stay when you feel O.K. and have some fun,
But the ev'nings nearly over, For the hours are taking flight,
And though it ends among such friends so warm and bright,
Who wants to say 'Goodnight ? '.

WINDY CITY
I just blew in from the windy city,
the windy city is mighty perdy,
but they ain't got what we got, no sirree.
They've got shacks up to seven stories,
never see any morning glories,
but a step from our doorway,
we got 'em fer free.
They've got those minstrel shows,
perdy ladies in the big chapeau's.
Private lawns, public parks,
for the sake of civic virtue,
they've got foutains there that squirt you.
I just blew in from the windy city,
the windy city is mighty pretty,
but they ain't got what we got.
I'm telling you, boys,
we got more life in Deadwood city than in all of Illinois!
On the street was a dancing feller,
all dressed up in a suit of yeller,
and the dance that he did there went something like this.
Whistle.
"guys start whistling"

CALAMITY:
You shoulda seen me a-winder shopping, a-winder shopping
with eyes a-poppin' at the sights that you see there, yes sirree.
Press a bell and a moment later,
up you go in an elevator just as fast as a polecat a-climbin' a tree.
I heard claim hundreds came to a thing they call a baseball game!
Cigar stores, revolving doors, men wear sideburns and they oughter
'cause a haircut cost a quarter.
I just blew in from the windy city,
the windy city is mighty perdy,
but they ain't got what we got.
I'm telling ya boys,

A heaven of diamonds shine down thro' the night,
Two hearts are thrillin' in spite of the chill in the weather.
Love knows no season,
Love knows no clime,
Romance can blossom any old time,
Here in the open, we're walkin' and hopin' together!

Chorus
Sleigh bells ring, are u list'nin!
In the lane snow in glist'nin',
A beautiful sight,
We're happy tonight, walking in a winter wonderland!
Gone away is the blue bird,
Here to stay is a new bird,
He sings a love song,
As we go along, walkin' in a winter wonderland!
In the meadow we can build a snowman,
Then pretend he is Parson Brown,
He'll say "Are you married?" we'll say, "No man!
But you can do the job when you're in town!"
Later on we'll conspire
As we dream by the fire.
To faced unafraid, the plans that we made, walkin' in a winter wonderland!

YOU DON'T NEED MUSIC TO DANCE
CHORUS
You don't need the moon for loving
Or stars for romance
You don't need money to go to town
And you don't need music to dance
You don't have to look for bluebirds On the wings of chance
If you don't hear the song they sing
You don't need music to dance
You can count sheep when fast asleep
Dream when you're wide awake
Fly around on the ground in a silent sound
Don't pay the piper and spend high finance
If you've got the rhythm in your soul
You don't need music,
you don't need music
You dontr need music to dance.

Old stormy weather has called again,
Just stand up and laugh at the wind and the rain
And you'll get along very well.
Fall in line, there's a sun that'll light up your story,
Rise and shine, what about a look at early morning glory
Don't start to holler when things are wrong,
Don't get the wind up if nights are long,
Just lift up your voices and break into song,
And you'll get along very well, sir,
You'll get along darn well.
