Lyrics DUNGAREE DOLL!
DUNGAREE DOLL!
PAINT YOUR INITIALS
ON MY JEANS,
SO EVERYONE IN TOWN
WILL KNOW
WE GO AROUND
TOGETHER,
TOGETHER,
TOGETHER.
DUNGAREE DOLL!
DUNGAREE DOLL!
PASTE MY PICTURE
ON YOUR SLEEVE,
SO EVERYONE CAN SEE
THAT YOU BELONG
TO ME,
FOREVER,
FOREVER,
FOREVER.

I WANT YOU TO WEAR
MY ORANGE SWEATER,
THE BEAT UP SWEATER
WITH THE HIGH SCHOOL
LETTER.
GOING TO MAKE A CHAIN
OF PAPER CLIPS
AND CHAIN US
TOGETHER,
WHILE I KISS YOUR LIPS.

YOU DUNGAREE DOLL!
DUNGAREE DOLL!
PROMISE ME
YOU NEVER WILL FALL,
FOR ANY OTHER GUY.
TELL ME
YOU'RE MY DUNGAREE,
DUNGAREE,
DUNGAREE,
DUNGAREE,
DUNGAREE,
DUNGAREE DOLL!

Lyrics LA OTRA NOCHE,
CUANDO LLAME
A TU PUERTA,
SABIENDO YO QUE
HAY ESTABAS
TE NEGASTE
A CONTESTAR.
YA ERA TARDE,
PENS QUE ESTABAS
DORMIDA,
PERO DUDANDO MORIA
Y ME EMPEC
A PREGUNTAR.

QUIEN LE ESTAR
REPITIENDO
PATA BRA YA MIAS?
QUIEN LE ESTARA
DESTROZANDO
SUAMORQUE ES MI GUIA?
QUIEN SE ESTARA
HACIENDO
DUENO DE SU
VIDA LOCA?
QUIEN ESTARA
DESPOJANDOME
E SU TERNURA?

ESA NOCHE!
FUE QUE SUPE
QUE TA AMABA,
PUES LOS CELOS
MEMATABAN
Y LLOPRANDO
YO ME FUI.
ESA NOCHE!
CON MI MENTE
BATALLANDO,
ME FUI A MI CASA
LLORANDO
Y LLORANDO
ME DORMI.

(English lyric by Ben Raleigh):
EVERY EVENING
I FEEL SO LONELY
WITHOUT YOU,
WHEN I START THINKING
ABOUT YOU,
I CRY MYSELF
TO SLEEP.
EVERY EVENING
MY HUNGRY HEART
REMINISCES,
WHEN I REMEMBER
YOUR KISSES,
I CRY MYSELF
TO SLEEP.

BUT THERE IS REALLY
NO SLEEP
FOR AN UNHAPPY LOVER,
THIS IS
THE HEARTBREAKING TRUTH
THAT I HAD
TO DISCOVER.
ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT
I DO NOTHING
BUT KEEP DREAMING
OF YOU;
I CAN'T FORGET
THAT I LOVE YOU,
I LOVE YOU,
I LOVE YOU.

OH, MY DARLING,
NO ONE ON EARTH
CAN REPLACE YOU,
IF MY ARMS
LONG TO
EMBRACE YOU,
WHAT CAN I DO
BUT WEEP?
SO FORGIVE ME,
TELL ME
YOU WANT US TOGETHER,
DON'T LET ME GO
ON FOREVER,
CRYING MYSELF
TO SLEEP.

Lyrics verse 1:
LAURA AND TOMMY WERE LOVERS,
HE WANTED TO GIVE HER EV'RYTHING
FLOWERS,
PRESENTS AND MOST OF ALL,
A WEDDING RING!
HE SAW A SIGN FOR A STOCK CAR RACE,
A THOUSAND DOLLAR PRIZE IT READ
HE COULDN'T GET LAURA ON THE PHONE,
SO TO HER MOTHER TOMMY SAID:

Chorus:
TELL LAURA I LOVE HER!
TELL LAURA I NEED HER!
TELL LAURA I MAY BE LATE,
I'VE GOT SOMETHING TO DO
THAT CANNOT WAIT.

verse 2:
HE DROVE HIS CAR
TO THE RACING GROUNDS,
HE WAS THE YOUNGEST DRIVER THERE
THE CROWD ROARED
AS THEY STARTED THE RACE,
'ROUND THE TRACK
THEY DROVE AT A DEADLY PACE!
NO ONE KNOWS
WHAT HAPPENED THAT DAY,
HOW HIS CAR OVERTURNED IN FLAMES,
BUT AS THEY PULLED HIM
FROM THE TWISTED WRECK,
WITH HIS DYING BREATH,
THEY HEARD HIM SAY:

Chorus:
TELL LAURA I LOVE HER!
TELL LAURA I NEED HER!
TELL LAURA NOT TO CRY,
MY LOVE FOR HER WILL NEVER DIE!

verse 3:
spoken: NOW IN THE CHAPEL LAURA PRAYS
FOR HER TOMMY WHO PASSED AWAY
sung: IT WAS JUST FOR LAURA
HE LIVED AND DIED,
ALONE IN THE CHAPEL
SHE CAN HEAR HIM CRY

Chorus:
TELL LAURA I LOVE HER!
TELL LAURA I NEED HER!
TELL LAURA NOT TO CRY,
MY LOVE FOR HER WILL NEVER DIE!

Lyrics SOMETIMES WE WALK
HAND IN HAND BY THE SEA
AND WE BREATHE IN
THE COOL SALTY AIR
YOU TURN TO ME
WITH A KISS
IN YOUR EYES
AND MY HEART
FEELS A THRILL
BEYOND COMPARE!
THEN YOUR LIPS
CLING TO MINE,
IT'S WONDERFUL!
WONDERFUL!
OH, SO WONDERFUL,
MY LOVE!
SOMETIMES WE STAND
ON THE TOP OF A HILL
AND WE GAZE AT THE EARTH
AND THE SKY
I TURN TO YOU
AND YOU MELT
IN MY ARMS,
THERE WE ARE,
DARLING,
ONLY YOU AND I!
WHAT A MOMENT
TO SHARE,
IT'S WONDERFUL!
WONDERFUL!
OH, SO WONDERFUL
MY LOVE!

THIS WORLD IS FULL
OF WOND'ROUS THINGS,
IT'S TRUE,
BUT THEY WOULDN'T
HAVE MUCH MEANING
WITHOUT YOU.

SOME QUIET EVENINGS
I SIT BY YOUR SIDE
AND WE'RE LOST
IN A WORLD
OF OUR OWN
I FEEL THE GLOW
OF YOUR UNSPOKEN LOVE,
I'M AWARE
OF THE TREASURE
THAT I OWN.
AND I SAY TO MYSELF,
IT'S WONDERFUL!
WONDERFUL!
OH, SO WONDERFUL,
MY LOVE!
