Lyrics THE FIRST RULE
IS THERE AIN'T NO RULES
SOME YOU WIN
AND SOME YOU LOSE.
JUST WHEN YOU THINK
THAT LOVE IS TRUE
SOMEBODY
MAKES A FOOL OUTTA YOU,
LIKE IT OR NOT,
ONE THING'S FOR SURE
ALL IS FAIR
IN LOVE AND WAR.

YOU AND ME
MAKE LOVE ALL NIGHT,
END UP
IN A KNOCK DOWN DRAG OUT FIGHT,
KICK AND CUSS
AND SCREAM AND SHOUT,
TILL WE'VE FORGOTTEN
WHAT WE'RE FIGHTIN' ABOUT.
THEN WE KISS
AND MAKE UP
AND LOVE SOME MORE
'CAUSE ALL IS FAIR
IN LOVE AND WAR.

ANYTHING GOES
WHEN IT COMES TO LOVE
SOMEONE'S GOIN' DOWN
WHEN PUSH COMES TO SHOVE.
IT'S A FIGHT TO THE FINISH
WITH NO HOLDS BARRED,
IF SOMEONE WINDS UP
WITH A BROKEN HEART,
THAT'S TOUGH.

BABY, YOU KNOW
THAT I SURE WOULD GRIEVE
IF YOU WERE EVER TO LEAVE ME.
GUESS I'D HAVE TO FIND ME
SOMEONE NEW,
SOMEONE WHO'S
A LITTLE BIT PRETTIER THAN YOU
JUST TO EVEN UP THE SCORE,
'CAUSE ALL IS FAIR
IN LOVE AND WAR.

LIKE IT OR NOT,
ONE THING'S FOR SURE,
ALL IS FAIR
IN LOVE AND WAR.

Lyrics [verse 1]:
SNOW IS FALLING,
IT'S CHRISTMAS EVE,
PRESENTS ARE WRAPPED
AND UNDER THE TREE.
IS THERE ONE FOR ME?

[Chorus]:
I ONLY WANT YOU FOR CHRISTMAS,
BABY,
I DON'T NEED
NOTHING ELSE,
I ONLY WANT YOU FOR CHRISTMAS,
BABY,
TIE A RIBBON
AROUND YOURSELF.

[verse 2]:
I AIN'T GONNA
WRITE NO LETTER
TO SEND NORTH
TO THE POLE,
WHAT I'M WANTING
THIS YEAR
SAINT NICK
DON'T NEED TO KNOW!

[Chorus]:
I ONLY WANT YOU FOR CHRISTMAS,
BABY,
I DON'T NEED
NOTHING ELSE,
I ONLY WANT YOU FOR CHRISTMAS,
BABY,
TIE A RIBBON
AROUND YOURSELF.

[verse 3]:
PUT ON
YOUR CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS,
I'LL FIND THAT MISTLETOE,
LET'S GET INTO
THE HOLIDAY SPIRITS,
HONEY,
HO HO HO,
HO
HO HO.

[Chorus]:
I ONLY WANT YOU FOR CHRISTMAS,
BABY,
I DON'T NEED
NOTHING ELSE,
I ONLY WANT YOU FOR CHRISTMAS,
BABY,
TIE A RIBBON
AROUND YOURSELF.

Lyrics verse 1:
WHERE THERE'S A CLOUD
DON'T MEAN THERE'S RAIN.
TEARS IN MY EYES
DON'T MEAN THERE'S PAIN.
DON'T FLATTER YOURSELF,
I'M OVER YOU.
THINGS AREN'T ALWAYS
WHAT THEY SEEM,
YOU CAN'T BELIEVE
EVERYTHING
YOU READ ON MY FACE.
I'M OVER YOU.

Chorus:
YOU HEARD I'M DRINKING
MORE THAN I SHOULD,
THAT I AIN'T BEEN LOOKING
ALL THAT GOOD.
SOMEONE TOLD YOU
I WAS TAKING IT ROUGH,
OH, WHY ARE THEY MAKING
THOSE STORIES UP,
WHEN I'M OVER YOU?

verse 2:
THERE WERE TIMES,
IF YOU'D BEEN AROUND,
YOU WOULD HAVE SEEN ME
BROKEN DOWN,
BUT NOW YOU WON'T -
I'M OVER YOU.
SO IF I SEEM
A LITTLE BIT COLD,
IT ONLY MEANS
YOU'VE LOST THE HOLD
YOU HAD ON ME -
I'M OVER YOU.

Chorus:
YOU HEARD
I'M DRINKING
MORE THAN I SHOULD,
THAT I AIN'T
BEEN LOOKING
ALL THAT GOOD.
SOMEONE TOLD YOU
I WAS TAKING IT ROUGH,
OH,
WHY ARE THEY MAKING
THOSE STORIES UP,
WHEN I'M OVER YOU?

I'M OVER YOU.
I'M OVER YOU.

Lyrics verse 1:
HE SAID,
I GREW UP IN WICHITA
IN A MAYBERRY KIND OF TOWN
HE NEVER LIKED OVERALLS
OR HAULING HAY 'TIL SUNDOWN.
HE SAID HE DREAMED ABOUT L.A.
AS HE PLOWED AWAY THE DAY
ON AN OLD JOHN DEERE.
I SAID,
BOY, LET ME WARN YOU,
IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
THERE'S SOME FAST TRAINS HERE.

Chorus:
YOU'RE NOT IN KANSAS ANYMORE,
CAN'T BE TOO CAREFUL
THAT'S FOR SURE,
CITY LIGHTS
WILL LEAD YOU ON,
MORNING COMES
AND THEY'LL BE GONE.
SO WRITE MY NUMBER
ON YOUR WALL,
YOU CAN CALL ME
ANYTIME AT ALL.
I'M SO HAPPY NOW, BOY,
YOU'RE NOT IN KANSAS ANYMORE.

verse 2:
HE SAID,
DO YOU KNOW WHERE CARSON LIVES?
SO WE DROVE UP TO MALIBU.
CRUISING DOWN THE SUNSET STRIP
I LET HIM SEAL A KISS OR TWO.
UNDER THE HOLLYWOOD SIGN
I TRIED TO HIDE A SMILE
AS I WHISPERED LOW,
I WANNA BE THE FIRST
TO TELL YOU
HERE WE SAY 'ROADAYO,'
NOT RODEO.

Chorus:
YOU'RE NOT IN KANSAS ANYMORE,
CAN'T BE TOO CAREFUL
THAT'S FOR SURE,
CITY LIGHTS
WILL LEAD YOU ON,
MORNING COMES
AND THEY'LL BE GONE.
SO WRITE MY NUMBER
ON YOUR WALL,
AND CALL ME
ANYTIME AT ALL.
I'M SO HAPPY NOW, BOY,
YOU'RE NOT IN KANSAS ANYMORE.

I'M SO HAPPY NOW, BOY,
YOU'RE NOT IN KANSAS ANYMORE.
