    Over And Over Again


    He goes out looking for fun but he always finds trouble
    Around every corner is somebody bursting his bubble
    His heart's in the right place if only his head were the same
    Who can blame him for making the same mistake
    Making the same mistake
    Making the same mistake
    Over and over, and over and over
    And over and over again.

    He took a job laying bricks after six earning double
    Every morning he woke up and broke up the rubble
    His heart's in the right place if only his head were the same
    Who can blame him for making the same mistake
    Making the same mistake
    Making the same mistake
    Over and over, and over and over
    And over and over again.

    Alone in his cosy room, nobody there
    No-one to care for him, Oh dear me
    What a terrible place to be.


    He goes out looking for fun but he always finds trouble
    Around every corner is somebody bursting his bubble
    His heart's in the right place if only his head were the same
    Who can blame him for making the same mistake
    Making the same mistake
    Making the same mistake
    Over and over, and over and over
    And over and over again.
    Ooooooooooh! Over and over and over and over
    And over and over again!

    Keep On Doing It

    My bag is packed and I'm walking through the door
    Don't try to stop me I can't take it any more
    'Cos you've learned to do it so nice
    You said is that all there is to it? so nice
    And now you know and there you go
    Keep on doing it

    In your possession, take 'em all from me
    I don't need reminding how good it used to be
    'Cos you've learned to do it so nice
    You said is that all there is to it? so nice
    And now you know and there you go
    Keep on doing it

    Who was that man that I saw you with last night
    Everybody's saying you're out of your mind but you're out of sight
    Because you've learned to do it so nice
    You said is that all there is to it? so nice
    And now you know and there you go
    Keep on doing it

    Now hit me one more time now

    Everybody tells me there's a hard rain gonna fall
    I don't mind the rain, all I want to do is fall
    'Cos you've learned to do it so nice
    You said is that all there is to it
    And now you know and there you go
    Keep on doing it

    Everybody's gonna keep on doing it...

    You Won't Get Me

    You wanted to see me
    You've got something to say
    That generally life's gonna be so good
    If I just do what you say
    But you won't get me this time
    The words don't mean it's true
    No you won't get me this time
    I'm so tired of I do believe in you

    You wanted to tell me
    That people are born to change
    That no matter what went on before
    Sweet things being arranged
    But you won't get me this time
    The word's don't mean it's true
    No you won't get me this time
    I'm so tired of I do believe in you

    You want to see me
    'Cos you've got something to say
    Telling me life's gonna be so good
    If I just do what you say
    But you won't get me this time
    The words don't make it true
    No you won't get me this time
    I'm so tired of I do believe in you

    Passing Us By

    Walking the line and telling the truth
    Isn't very easy for me
    Saying I'm fine and telling the lie
    Suits the people that you see
    Nobody wants to hear the story
    About you know who and who knows why
    We all like to fawn in glory
    And we don't like competers passing us by

    Given the choice of money or pride
    Which would you rather choose
    Take the advice of someone who knows
    With each one you're gonna lose
    Because nobody wants to hear the story
    About you know who and who knows why
    We all like to fawn in glory
    And we don't like competers passing us by

    Cross all the fingers, dot all the i's
    Any trick you want to try
    Watch out for ladders, **always stretch bladders** [that can't be right? :? ]
    Too soon you're saying goodbye
    Some folks just can't tell the difference
    Between what you say and what you mean
    Don't tell lies or you'll realize
    That you can't live in the dream machine.

    And So Goodbye

    I had been downhearted
    Nowhere for me to run
    Sometimes I just couldn't ever imagine
    Where to get me a friend for fun
    Came up young Kitty, she wasn't very pretty
    But she said come on join me now
    If you don't feel like staying long
    Just take me for an hour

    And so goodbye to the life that's gone forever
    And goodbye to the lonely tapestry
    And goodbye to the people who were never, oh no no,
    Any help or even hindrance to me.

    So after she showed me what to do
    And how to do it right
    She had me doing it every day
    And sometimes into the night
    Along came Mary quite contrary
    Saying boy, would you like a rest
    If you know what love is about
    Boy, I can do it best

    And so goodbye to the life that's gone forever
    And goodbye to the lonely tapestry
    And goodbye to the people who were never, oh no no,
    Any help or even hindrance to me.

    And so goodbye to the life that's gone forever
    And goodbye to the lonely tapestry
    And goodbye to the people who were never, oh no no,
    Any help or even hindrance to me.

    So after they put the word around
    About the boy in me
    They didn't just sit there talking about it
    They came on strong at me
    When you hear about me passing on,
    **If you've a rolling head**
    You'll know that too many men like Mary and Kit
    Will be tapping on my hand

    And so goodbye to the life that's gone forever
    And goodbye to the lonely tapestry
    And goodbye to the people who were never, oh no no,
    Any help or even hindrance to me.

    ANY HELP ON THOSE BAFFLING TWO LINES?

    Country Life

    Country life is what you need
    To keep the lifeline clear
    Smell the cornfields, breathe the air
    Yes happiness my dear

    Since the birdcalls, trees tall
    Are medicine for your ears
    Won't you let the pixies through the door
    And over your windowsill

    Country life will make a man be
    Twice the man you are
    There's the answer, see the country
    Leave the city to the stars
    Think about birdcalls, trees tall
    Medicine for your ears
    Won't you let the pixies through the door
    And over your windowsill

    Let's think about birdcalls, trees tall
    And think of the life you lead
    Trying to be Sir Lancelot
    Riding on a silver steed

    Country life is what you need
    To keep the lifeline clear
    Smell the cornfields, breathe the air
    Yes happiness my dear

    Since the birdcalls, trees tall
    Are medicine for your ears
    Won't you let the pixies through the door
    And over your windowsill.

    Savaloy Dip

    Mention me to my friends up north when you visit
    Tell them I think of them each lonely minute
    I miss the football game last time, it's just not the same
    Won't you tell them to keep my chair warm I'll be home

    I can drink myself blind but I still can't find my way back home
    James, Tom, Teddy, Betty, Victor, Eddie are the life I own

    Talking about Savaloy Dip, Sunday afternoon trip
    Pease pudding, pork pies,
    Smoke can still get in your eyes

    Never will be and you will never light my fire
    What about my sun? Never see the sun
    Because the streets are getting higher and higher

    Talking about Savaloy Dip, Sunday afternoon trip
    Pease pudding, pork pies,
    Smoke can still get in your eyes

    Keep the people free, oh it doesn't make sense to me
    I feel I lost all the people were ever worth a bean

    Now it's Savaloy dip, Sunday afternoon trip
    Pease pudding , pork pies,
    Smoke can still get in your eyes

    Oh Lord they're trying to kill and do away with the will
    Of the people to think
    There's more to a man than a military band
    And keeping him down with demon drink
    Talking about Savaloy dips, Sunday afternoon trip
    Pease pudding, pork pies,
    Smoke can still get in your eyes

    I can drink myself blind, I still can't find my way back home
    James, Tom, Teddy, Betty, Mother is there any other like my home

    Talking about Savaloy Dip, Sunday afternoon trip
    Pease pudding, pork pies,
    Smoke can still get in your eyes

    Mention me to my friends up north when you visit
    Tell them I think of them each lonely minute
    I miss the football game, last fame is just not the same
    Won't you tell them to keep my chair warm I'll be home
    Won't you tell them to keep my chair warm I'll be home
    Won't you tell them to keep my chair warm I'll be home

    Well he aint got no soul
    I can drink myself blind but I still can't find my way back home...

    Smells Like Lemon and It Tastes Like Wine

    I was on the dole and I bought myself a newspaper
    Opened up the page and I read my horoscope
    It said Play your cards right, you’ll meet a dark stranger
    It took away my cares and it filled me up with hope
    What a dope
    All that’s soft soap
    Really there was no hope
    Sadly so

    Come out, come out, wherever you are
    The game is up, you wanna be a star
    Now you’ve gotta learn how to take your time
    When it smells like lemon and it tastes like wine

    Meanwhile further on a day later sure enough
    Along came a stranger with a sideways look
    I shared out my food and my money and my clothes
    When I woke up in the morning everything had been took
    By a crook
    I’d been forsook
    Now look

    Come out, come out, wherever you are
    The game is up, you wanna be a star
    But you’ve gotta learn how to take your time
    When it smells like lemon and it tastes like wine

    I saw a fine face, a good face, oh my,
    She was standing and a-smiling and she waved me down
    Feeling pretty strange so I didn’t try to make it
    But before I knew’t she’s out the car and she was outta town
    She put me down
    She made me frown
    I’m down
    Look around

    Come out, come out, wherever you are
    The game is up, you wanna be a star
    But you’ve gotta learn how to take your time
    When it smells like lemon and it tastes like wine

    I saw a kind face, a good-looking stranger,
    She was standing and a-smiling and she waved me down
    Feeling pretty strange so I didn’t try to make it
    But before I knew it she’s out the car and she was outta town
    She put me down
    She made me frown
    I’m down
    Look around

    Come out, come out, wherever you are
    The game is up, you wanna be a star
    But you’ve gotta learn how to take your time
    When it smells like lemon and it tastes like wine

    Story of my life
    That’s why I ain’t got no wife
    All the trouble and strife
    It cuts like a knife
    I’ve been around the world it’s true
    Looking for someone exactly like you….

    Now I'm down in love it's true
    She put me down
    Made me frown
    Look out, look out where ever you are
    The game is up
    Everybody wants to be a star
    But you've got to learn how to take your time
    When it smells like lemon and it tastes like wine

    Hotcha! Hotcha! Babe
    So true
    Now that's my baby

    Come out , come out, where ever you are
    The game is up you wanna be a star
    And you've gotta learn how to take your time
    When it smells like lemon and it tastes like wine
    ..... ooo---ooo---oo

    Come out, come out, where ever you are
    The game is up you wanna be a star
    You've got to learn how to take your time
    When it smells like lemon and it tastes like wine
    When it smells like lemon
    When it smells like lemon
    When it smells like lemon
    When it smells like lemon
    When it smells like lemon
    When it smells like lemon
    and it tastes like wine.............

    Holly!

    Where did you get that first line to "And so goodbye"???? - On "Savaloy Dip" the start is missing??? :?: :?: :?: :?:
     
  10. julia

    julia New Member

    Add: to And so goodbye:

    I belive that he's singing: "Any help are even hindrance to me",- but I'm not sure! :)
     
  11. julia

    julia New Member

    Another add. to "And So Goodbye".

    "So after they put the words around about the boy in me
    they didn't just sit there talking about it, they came on strong at me"

    The next line... well... I just can't figure out what he's singing? - I wish that we could ask Alan himself? :) :)
     
  12. hollyh

    hollyh Founder Member

    Yes, I like that "came on strong at me" -- that's a good addition.

    "any help are even hindrance" doesn't make grammatical sense to me, though...

    I don't know where I got that beginning to "And So Goodbye" -- that's where my track starts...it IS kind of soft though, and it does sound as if it's just starting in the middle.

    Yes, I wish that I could ask Alan in person too. :cool:

    Willy the Queen

    Whenever there's a party all the lights go out
    ain't that so
    When Willy has a party all the boys turn up
    'cos he loves them so

    Oh, now love them Willy one more time
    Just one kiss can turn all their water into wine
    When you groove everybody has to smile
    Now Willy knows how to do it with style

    When Willy goes out walking he can fill the street
    anywhere he goes
    All the stares everywhere, they'e all completely beat
    'cos he's dressed in womens clothes

    Oh, now love them Willy one more time
    Just one kiss can turn all their water into wine
    When you groove everybody has to smile
    Now Willy knows how to do it with style

    When Willy goes out clubbing he can dance all night
    an attraction for one and all
    Now every famous face believes that he's alright
    and even the best can fall

    Oh, now love them Willy one more time
    Just one kiss can turn all their water into wine
    When you groove everybody has to smile
    'cos Willy knows how to do it with style

    Now every famous face believes that he's alright
    and even the best can fall

    Hey Willy, whatcha doing down there
    you're alright?
    you're alright?
    you're alright

    (Can somebody help me with the missing lyrics, and change what might be wrong? - I just love that song. The music is so like Randy Newman :))
    (PS: Might that song have been written about Freddie Mercury??? :lol: )

    Add. to "You won't get me this time".

    First of all I believe that the first and the third verse are similar, and the lyrics from the third verse are correct,- besides from that line, you can't hear! :) - I have troubles hearing what he sings as well, but I believe that it could be something like: "The words don't make it true":lol: - Or perhaps "The words don't make the truth"????? :?:

    Then I have a suggestion for the second verse wich sounds to me as if he's singing: "You wanted to tell me that people don't want to change"

    Just a suggestion from an old grey-haired Danish woman! :lol:
     
  15. hollyh

    hollyh Founder Member

    Yes, I like "The words don't make it true" -- I've put that in now. The second verse, though, I changed to "that people are born to change" -- since the woman in the song (the "you") is the one trying to change him, I think that makes more sense.

    Alan? Yo, ALAN? We need a definitive answer here!
     
  16. hollyh

    hollyh Founder Member

    As for Willie the Queen ... the opening is hard to hear but I imagine it is "Whenever there's a party..."

    And that third line in the third verse: how about --

    "All these stares, everywhere, they're all completely beat"

    Poor Jimmy

    There's like some smoke from a thousand cigarettes
    There's little fat men making big fat bets
    We're going fighting tonight to see Jimmy our pride and joy
    That wonderful bountiful tiny boy

    Who'll take Jimmy at six to four?
    Here's another gent saying that he won't hit the floor
    He's a hero of the junkyard, he's the daddy of them all
    But all the big champions must have a big fall.

    Now Jimmy's a local and he comes from the mine
    And now he fancies the women and the wine
    So with song and the tears, our hero will tumble
    And the dreams of all will start to crumble.

    Who'll take Jimmy at six to four?
    Here's another gent saying that he won't hit the floor
    He's a hero of the junkyard, he's the daddy of them all
    But all the big champions must have a big fall.

    Gimme gimme gimme gimmeee

    Who'll take Jimmy at six to four?
    Here's another gent saying that he won't hit the floor
    He's a hero of the junkyard, he's the daddy of them all
    But all the big champions must have a big fall.

    To the ring, with a jump and a skip,
    And you know that soon there'll be blood on his lip
    On his arms and on his thighs
    In his nose and on his eyes
    And all the neighbours will say, "oh what a surprise"

    Who'll take Jimmy at six to four?
    Here's another gent saying that he won't hit the floor
    He's a hero of the junkyard, he's the daddy of them all
    But all the big champions must have a big fall.
