Lyrics AIN'T NO SOUL
LEFT IN THESE OLD SHOES
SINCE YOU BEEN GONE
WE AIN'T TOGETHER,
WHY SHINE THAT LEATHER
AND PUT THEM ON.
THOUGH I STILL FEEL
THE RHYTHM,
CAN'T DO NO DANCING
WITH THEM,
AIN'T NO SOUL
LEFT IN THESE OLD SHOES
SINCE YOU BEEN GONE.

THESE OLD LACES
THAT TOOK ME PLACES
JUST WON'T TIE
MUSIC BANGS OUT
BUT THIS TONGUE
HANGS OUT,
AND SEEMS TO CRY.
THOUGH I STILL FEEL
THE RHYTHM,
CAN'T DO NO DANCING
WITH THEM,
AIN'T NO SOUL
LEFT IN THESE OLD SHOES
SINCE YOU BEEN GONE.

UNTIL YOU COME BACK, HON,
THEY'RE GOING TO STAY
UNDERNEATH MY BED
THEY WANT TO DANCE,
BUT DON'T GET THE CHANCE,
BECAUSE LIKE I SAID:
THOUGH I STILL FEEL
THE RHYTHM,
CAN'T DO NO DANCING
WITH THEM,
AIN'T NO SOUL
LEFT IN THESE OLD SHOES
SINCE YOU BEEN GONE.

Lyrics FROM ONE LITTLE KISS
AND A WHOLE LOTTA LOVIN'
YOU BUILD A BIG MANSION
OF LOVE.
HIGH ON A HILL
OF HAPPINESS,
WITH SOMEONE
YOU'VE BEEN DREAMING OF.
YOU BUILD A WALL AROUND
WITH A LOT OF LOVIN',
ALL AROUND
YOUR MANSION OF LOVE
THEN ONE DAY
YOU HEAR
A STRANGE LITTLE SOUND,
TRYING TO TEAR
YOUR MANSION DOWN.

OH, CHIP CHIP,
YOU TELL A LITTLE LIE,
CHIP CHIP,
YOU MAKE YOUR BABY CRY,
CHIP CHIP,
YOU CHEAT A LITTLE BIT,
CHIP CHIP,
YOU QUARREL OVER IT.
ONE DAY
YOU'RE GONNA DISCOVER,
ONE LITTLE WRONG
LEADS TO ANOTHER.
CHIP CHIP,
CHIPPING AWAY,
CHIPPING AT
YOUR MANSION OF LOVE.

ONE LITTLE SPARK
WHEN IT STARTS
A-GLOWING,
CAN WARM
A BIG MANSION OF LOVE.
ONE LITTLE WRONG
BRINGS ON THE GLOOM,
PUTS A CHILL
IN EV'RY ROOM.

OH, CHIP CHIP,
YOU TELL A LITTLE LIE,
CHIP CHIP,
YOU MAKE YOUR BABY CRY,
CHIP CHIP,
YOU CHEAT A LITTLE BIT,
CHIP CHIP,
YOU QUARREL OVER IT.
ONE DAY
YOU'RE GONNA DISCOVER,
ONE LITTLE WRONG
LEADS TO ANOTHER.
CHIP CHIP,
CHIPPING AWAY,
CHIPPING AT
YOUR MANSION OF LOVE.

Lyrics OH, THE BOARDWALK IS DESERTED,
THERE'S NOBODY
DOWN BY THE SHORE
AND THE FERRIS WHEEL RIDE
ISNT TURNING AROUND
ANY MORE.
THE HEAT WAVE
AND THE CROWDS
ARE JUST OLD NEWS,
BUT I'VE STILL GOT
SOME SAND IN MY SHOES.

SAND IN MY SHOES,
BRINGS MEMORIES
OF THE SALTY AIR
SAND IN MY SHOES,
THE BLANKET
THAT WE USED TO SHARE.
HOW WE FELL IN LOVE
DOWN BY THE SEA,
COMES BACK TO ME
WITH THE SAND IN MY SHOES.

WHEN THE WATER WAS COLD,
YOU WOULD TREMBLE
AND HOLD ME SO TIGHT,
AND WE WOULD SIT
ON THE BEACH,
JUST TO WAIT
FOR THE STARS
TO COME OUT
AT NIGHT.
THE HEAT WAVE
AND THE CROWDS
ARE JUST OLD NEWS,
BUT I'VE STILL GOT
SOME SAND IN MY SHOES.

SAND IN MY SHOES,
BRINGS MEMORIES
OF THE SALTY AIR
SAND IN MY SHOES,
THE BLANKET
THAT WE USED TO SHARE.
HOW WE FELL IN LOVE
DOWN BY THE SEA,
COMES BACK TO ME
WITH THE SAND IN MY SHOES.

Lyrics IT'S TORTURE,
LIKE AN ITCH
YOU CAN'T SCRATCH,
AND HURTS
LIKE BEING BURNED
WITH A MATCH.
IT'S TORTURE,
BEING CLOSE TO YOU,
AND NOT LOVE YOU
LIKE I WANT TO.

I KNOW YOU WANT ME
LIKE I WANT YOU,
AND AS MUCH
AS I LOVE YOU,
YOU LOVE ME TOO.
YOU KEEP ON PLAYING
THIS WAITING GAME,
MEANTIME,
HONEY,
MY HEART
IS IN PAIN.

BABY,
I'M APPEALING
TO YOUR DEEPEST
FEMININE FEELINGS
GIVE ME LOVE
AND NOT REJECTION,
BABY,
I'M STARVING
FOR YOUR AFFECTION.

IT'S TORTURE,
LIKE AN ITCH
YOU CAN'T SCRATCH,
AND HURTS
LIKE BEING BURNED
WITH A MATCH.
IT'S TORTURE,
BEING CLOSE TO YOU,
AND NOT LOVE YOU
LIKE I WANT TO.

LOVE IS SUPPOSED
TO BE BEAUTIFUL,
WHEN THE FEELING
IS MUTUAL
AND IT'S MUTUAL,
THIS LOVE I KNOW,
SO WHY
MAKE ME SUFFER SO?

BABY,
I'M APPEALING
TO YOUR DEEPEST
FEMININE FEELINGS,
GIVE ME LOVE
AND NOT REJECTION,
BABY,
I'M STARVING
FOR YOUR AFFECTION.

IT'S TORTURE,
LIKE AN ITCH
YOU CAN'T SCRATCH,
AND HURTS
LIKE BEING BURNED
WITH A MATCH.
IT'S TORTURE,
BEING CLOSE TO YOU,
AND NOT LOVE YOU
LIKE I WANT TO.

Lyrics I BOUGHT MY LOVE
A SILVER RING
TO WEAR
UPON HER HAND,
BUT SHE TURNED AWAY
AND I HEARD HER SAY,
HE DOESN'T UNDERSTAND
I DON'T NEED RICHES
TO MAKE ME CARE,
JUST A RIBBON
FOR MY HAIR.
I BOUGHT MY LOVE
TWO GOLDEN HEARTS
TO WEAR
UPON HER EARS,
BUT SHE TURNED FROM ME
SO I COULD NOT SEE
HER EYES
WERE FILLED WITH TEARS.
I DON'T NEED RICHES
TO MAKE ME CARE,
JUST A RIBBON
FOR MY HAIR.

I THOUGHT SHE WAS UNHAPPY,
BUT I COULD AFFORD NO MORE,
SO I BOUGHT HER
JUST A RIBBON
FOR A PENNY
AT THE STORE.

I BOUGHT HER
JUST A RIBBON BLUE
TO WEAR IN HER HAIR,
THEN SHE PRESSED HER LIPS
TO MY FINGER TIPS
SAYING,
NOW I KNOW YOU CARE
I DON'T NEED RICHES
TO MAKE ME CARE,
JUST A RIBBON
FOR MY HAIR.

I'M SUCH A LUCKY GUY,

Lyrics WHEN LOVE LEAVES
AND BREAKS YOUR HEART,
YOUR DREAMS
SIMPLY FALL APART.
YOU'LL SEE A WORLD
SAD AND BLUE,
SO FAMILIAR TO YOU,
YOU'LL LOOK FOR LIPS
THAT YOU ONCE KISSED,
BUT THEY'RE LOST
IN A MIST.
OH, IT'S FUNNY
HOW NOTHING
SEEMS QUITE SO CLEAR
WHEN YOU'RE
LOOKING THROUGH A TEAR.
THE FACE IN THE CROWD
YOU THINK IS HER FACE
SEEMS TO FADE
IN A SHADE
OF LONELY.
YOU WAIT
FOR A CHANCE
TO CATCH
ANOTHER GLANCE,
BUT SHE REALLY
WASN'T THERE.
HER WORDS
LINGER IN YOUR EAR,
GOOD BYE'S
ALL THAT YOU CAN HEAR.
IT COULDN'T HAPPEN
TO YOU,
BUT ALL AT ONCE
LOVE IS THROUGH.
IT'S FUNNY
HOW NOTHING
SEEMS CLEAR,
WHEN YOU'RE
LOOKING THROUGH A TEAR.

Lyrics Chorus:
ONE KISS FOR OLD TIMES' SAKE,
JUST LIKE IT USED TO BE,
ONE KISS FOR OLD TIMES' SAKE,
COULD BRING YOU BACK TO ME.

verse 1:
IF YOU'D GIVE ME A CHANCE,
TO LOVE YOU ONE MORE TIME,
MAYBE MY LIPS ON YOURS
COULD CHANGE YOUR MIND.
AND YOU WOULD KNOW
HOW MUCH I WANT YOU,
I NEED YOU, I LOVE YOU,
OH, MY DARLING,
PLEASE GRANT ME THIS.

Chorus:
ONE KISS FOR OLD TIMES' SAKE,
JUST LIKE IT USED TO BE,
ONE KISS FOR OLD TIMES' SAKE,
COULD BRING YOU BACK TO ME.

verse 2:
IF THERE'S A SPARK OF LOVE
STILL LEFT FROM OUR ROMANCE,
YOU OWE IT TO YOUR HEART
TO GIVE ME ONE MORE CHANCE.
OH, CAN'T YOU SEE
HOW MUCH I WANT YOU,
I NEED YOU, I LOVE YOU,
SO, MY DARLING,
PLEASE GRANT ME THIS.

Chorus:
ONE KISS FOR OLD TIMES' SAKE,
JUST LIKE IT USED TO BE,
ONE KISS FOR OLD TIMES' SAKE,
COULD BRING YOU BACK TO ME.

Lyrics verse 1:
THERE'S A BROKEN WHITE
AND WOODEN CROSS
ON A HILL
IN VIETNAM,
AND ITS SPLINTERED
WOODEN ARM
SEEMS TO WAVE
TO FOLKS BELOW.
A DOG TAG
HANGS AROUND
THAT CROSS
AND IT TOLLS
WITH EV'RY BREEZE,
CRYING OUT
TO THOSE WHO PASS:
COME VISIT
WITH ME
PLEASE!

Chorus
THAT'S WHERE MY BROTHER SLEEPS,
THAT'S WHERE MY BROTHER SLEEPS
PUT A FLOWER
ON HIS GRAVE.
THAT'S WHERE MY BROTHER SLEEPS,
THAT'S WHERE MY BROTHER SLEEPS.
HE WAS TOO YOUNG
TO EVEN SHAVE.

verse 2:
THE BLOOD HAS DRIED
AT VALLEY FORGE,
AND SAPLINGS
NOW ARE OLD.
THEY REMEMBER
SEVENTY SIX
AND THE RAG CLAD RANKS
SO COLD.
FORGET THEM NOT
FOR WHAT THEY GAVE
TO MAKE
THIS COUNTRY FREE
I'D WALK
TO SEE THEM
IF I COULD
BUT MY LEGS
ARE AT NORMANDY.

Chorus
THAT'S WHERE MY BROTHER SLEEPS,
THAT'S WHERE MY BROTHER SLEEPS
PUT A FLOWER
ON HIS GRAVE.
THAT'S WHERE MY BROTHER SLEEPS,
THAT'S WHERE MY BROTHER SLEEPS.
HE WAS TOO YOUNG
TO EVEN SHAVE.

verse 3:
THERE'S A MOUND OF DIRT
IN OLD VICKSBURG
THAT ISN'T MARKED
AT ALL,
BUT A RUSTY MUSKET
LIES
WHERE YOUNG JOHNNY
ONCE STOOD TALL.
HIS MOTHER
NEVER KNEW
THE PLACE
OR THE HERO'S
DEED HE DONE
JUST A SLIP OF PAPER
SAYING
MISSING IN ACTION.

Chorus
THAT'S WHERE MY BROTHER SLEEPS,
THAT'S WHERE MY BROTHER SLEEPS
PUT A FLOWER
ON HIS GRAVE.
THAT'S WHERE MY BROTHER SLEEPS,
THAT'S WHERE MY BROTHER SLEEPS.
HE WAS TOO YOUNG
TO EVEN SHAVE.

Lyrics OH, WHEN THE SUN
BEATS DOWN
AND BURNS THE TAR
UP ON THE ROOF,
AND YOUR SHOES
GET SO HOT
YOU WISH
YOUR TIRED FEET
WERE FIREPROOF.

UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
DOWN BY THE SEA,
ON A BLANKET
WITH MY BABY'S
WHERE I'LL BE.
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
OUT OF THE SUN,
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
WE'LL HAVE SOME FUN.
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
PEOPLE WALKIN' ABOVE,
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
WE'LL BE
FALLIN' IN LOVE.
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
BOARDWALK.

FROM THE PARK
YOU HEAR
THE HAPPY SOUND
OF A CAROUSEL,
YOU CAN ALMOST TASTE
THE HOTDOGS
AND FRENCH FRIES
THEY SELL.

UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
DOWN BY THE SEA,
ON A BLANKET
WITH MY BABY'S
WHERE I'LL BE.
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
OUT OF THE SUN,
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
WE'LL HAVE SOME FUN.
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
PEOPLE WALKIN' ABOVE,
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
WE'LL BE
FALLIN' IN LOVE.
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
BOARDWALK.
