Lyrics AS LONG AS I'M SINGING,
THERE'S A BELL UP IN MY BRAIN
THAT'S RINGING,
MAKIN' A CRAZY DING DONG.
AND IF THIS BAND
DON'T DESERT ME,
THEN THERE'S NOTHIN'
IN THE WORLD
CAN HURT ME,
LONG AS I'M SINGING
MY SONG.

GIVE ME TRUMPETS LEGATO,
PUT SOME SAXES WITH 'EM,
STRINGS PIZZICATO
AND SOME RHYTHM.

AS LONG AS I'M SINGING,
THEN THE WORLD'S ALL RIGHT
AND EVERYTHING'S SWINGIN'
LONG AS I'M SINGING MY SONG.

MAKING MUSIC
IS MORE TO ME
THAN A PLEASURE,
'CAUSE ME AND MUSIC,
WE GO TOGETHER
LIKE NOTES IN A MEASURE.

AS LONG AS I'M SINGING,
THEN THE WORLD'S ALL RIGHT
AND EVERYTHING'S SWINGIN'
LONG AS I'M SINGING MY SONG.

Lyrics EV'RY NIGHT
I HOPE AND PRAY
A DREAM LOVER
WILL COME MY WAY,
A GIRL
TO HOLD IN MY ARMS
AND KNOW THE MAGIC
OF HER CHARMS,
BECAUSE I WANT A GIRL
TO CALL MY OWN,
I WANT A DREAM LOVER
SO I DON'T HAVE TO
DREAM ALONE.

DREAM LOVER,
WHERE ARE YOU
WITH A LOVE,
OH, SO TRUE,
AND A HAND
THAT I CAN HOLD
TO FEEL YOU NEAR
WHEN I GROW OLD?
BECAUSE I WANT A GIRL
TO CALL MY OWN,
I WANT A DREAM LOVER
SO I DON'T HAVE TO
DREAM ALONE.

SOME DAY,
I DON'T KNOW HOW,
I HOPE
YOU'LL HEAR MY PLEA.
SOME WAY,
I DON'T KNOW HOW,
SHE'LL BRING HER LOVE
TO ME.

DREAM LOVER,
UNTIL THEN
I'LL GO TO SLEEP A
ND DREAM AGAIN.
THAT'S THE ONLY THING
TO DO
UNTIL MY LOVER'S DREAMS
COME TRUE,
BECAUSE I WANT A GIRL
TO CALL MY OWN,
I WANT A DREAM LOVER
SO I DON'T HAVE TO
DREAM ALONE.

Lyrics YEAH,
YOU GONNA MISS ME
EARLY IN THE MORNING
ONE OF THESE DAYS,
OH YEAH, WELL,
YOU GONNA WANT ME
EARLY IN THE MORNING
WHEN I'M AWAY.
DON'T YA KNOW,
YES,
YOU'LL BE SORRY
FOR THE TIMES
I CRIED,
YOU'LL BE SORRY,
FOR THE TIME
YOU LIED.
WELL,
YOU GONNA MISS ME
EARLY IN THE MORNING
ONE OF THESE DAYS,
OH YEAH.

WELL,
YA KNOW
A ROLLIN' STONE
DON'T GATHER NO MOSS,
AND YA CROSS
YOUR BRIDGE,
WHEN IT'S TIME
TO CROSS.
WELL,
YA BROKE MY HEART
WHEN YOU SAID
GOODBYE,
NOW THE MILK
IS SPILT,
BUT YOU'RE GONNA
CRY.

YEAH,
EARLY IN THE MORNING
YOU GONNA KNOW
THAT I WAS RIGHT,
OH, YEAH YEAH,
EARLY IN THE MORNING
WHEN THERE'S NOBODY
TO HOLD YOU TIGHT.
OH, OH WELL,
YOU GONNA WANT ME,
WANT ME BAD,
YOU GONNA MISS
THE BEST MAN
YOU EVER HAD.
YES,
YOU GONNA MISS ME,
YOU GONNA WANT ME,
ONE OF THESE DAYS,
OH, DON'T YA KNOW.

Lyrics EIGHTEEN YELLOW ROSES
CAME TODAY.
EIGHTEEN YELLOW ROSES
IN A PRETTY BOUQUET.
WHEN THE BOY
CAME TO THE DOOR,
I DIDN'T KNOW
WHAT TO SAY,
BUT EIGHTEEN YELLOW ROSES
CAME TODAY.

I OPENED UP THE CARD
TO SEE WHAT IT SAID.
I COULDN'T BELIEVE MY EYES
WHEN I HAD READ,
'THOUGH YOU BELONG
TO ANOTHER,
I LOVE YOU ANYWAY.
YES, EIGHTEEN YELLOW ROSES
CAME TODAY.

I NEVER DOUBTED YOUR LOVE
FOR A MINUTE.
I ALWAYS THOUGHT
THAT YOU WOULD BE TRUE.
BUT NOW THIS BOX
AND THE FLOWERS IN IT,
I GUESS THERE'S NOTHIN'
LEFT FOR ME TO DO

BUT ASK TO MEET THE BOY
THAT'S DONE THIS THING,
AND FIND OUT
IF HE'S GOT PLANS
TO BUY YOU A RING,
'CAUSE EIGHTEEN YELLOW ROSES
WILL WILT AND DIE ONE DAY.
BUT A FATHER'S LOVE
WILL NEVER FADE AWAY,
WILL NEVER FADE AWAY.

Lyrics DON'T YOU WORRY, DARLING,
DON'T YOU KNOW
I'LL BE THERE.

I'LL BE THERE
WHEN ALL YOUR DREAMS
ARE BROKEN
TO ANSWER YOUR UNSPOKEN PRAYER,
WHEN THE LITTLE THINGS YOU'RE DOING
DON'T TURN OUT RIGHT,
DON'T YOU WORRY,
DARLING,
I'LL BE THERE.
I'LL MISS YOU
AND IN MY DREAMS
I'LL KISS YOU
AND WISH YOU LUCK
ON YOUR NEW AFFAIR.
SO, BABY,
IF YOU NEED ME,
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO
IS CALL ME.
AND DON'T YOU WORRY,
DARLING,
I'LL BE THERE.

WELL,
WHENEVER YOU NEED TO KNOW
THAT THERE IS SOMEONE
WHO CARES.
AND SO IF YOUR NEW LOVE
ISN'T A TRUE LOVE,
DON'T YOU WORRY,
DARLING,
I'LL BE THERE.

Lyrics IF A MAN ANSWERS YOUR PHONE
WHEN I CALL,
THERE'S GONNA BE SOME SCREAMIN'
AND THAT AIN'T ALL,
'CAUSE IF I'M HERE
CALLING YOU,
THEN WHO'S THE WHO
I'M TALKING TO?
ANY FOOL CAN SEE
THAT THE GUY
AIN'T ME,
SO IF A MAN ANSWERS YOUR PHONE
THEN HONEY WE'RE THROUGH.
EV'RYTHING BETWEEN US
USED TO BE FINE
TILL I BECAME
A THIRD PARTY
WHERE THERE AIN'T
NO PARTY LINE.
I'M GONNA HANG
THIS PHONE UP NOW
AND DIAL AGAIN
AND THERE BETTER BE
A SOPRANO
AT THE OTHER END,
'CAUSE IF THE VOICE
IS BARITONE
WHEN YOU SAID
YOU'D BE HOME ALONE,
THEN I'M WASTING MY TIME
NOT TO MENTION MY DIME.
SO IF A MAN ANSWERS YOUR PHONE,
THEN HONEY I'M GONE.

Lyrics NOW WHEN YOU SEE
A GENTLEMAN BEE,
'ROUND A LADY BEE
BUZZIN',
JUST COUNT TO TEN,
THEN COUNT AGAIN.
THERE'S SURE TO BE
AN EVEN DOZEN.

MULTIPLICATION,
THAT'S THE NAME OF THE GAME.
AND EACH GENERATION,
HEY PLAY THE SAME.

NOW THERE WERE
TWO BUTTERFLIES
CASTIN' THEIR EYES
BOTH IN THE SAME DIRECTION,
YOU'D NEVER GUESS
THAT ONE LITTLE YES
COULD START
BUTTERFLY COLLECTION.

MULTIPLICATION,
THAT'S THE NAME OF THE GAME.
AND EACH GENERATION,
THEY PLAY THE SAME.

LET ME TELL YOU NOW
I SAY ONE AND ONE
IS FIVE.
YOU CAN CALL ME
A SILLY FOOL
BUT YOU TAKE TWO MINKS
AND ADD TWO WINKS,
AH,
YOU GOT ONE
MINK COAT.

WHEN A GIRL GETS COY
IN FRONT OF A BOY
AFTER THREE
OR FOUR DANCES,
WELL,
YOU CAN BET
SHE'LL PLAY
HARD TO GET
AND MULTIPLY
HER CHANCES.

MULTIPLICATION,
THAT'S THE NAME
OF THE GAME.
AND EACH GENERATION,
THEY PLAY THE SAME.

Lyrics COME AND SING
A SIMPLE SONG OF FREEDOM.
SING IT
LIKE YOU NEVER SUNG BEFORE.
LET IT FILL THE AIR,
TELL PEOPLE EVERYWHERE
THAT WE,
THE PEOPLE HERE,
DON'T WANT A WAR.

HEY THERE,
MISTER BLACK MAN,
CAN YOU HEAR ME?
I DON'T WANT YOUR DIAMONDS
OR YOUR GAME.
I JUST WANT TO BE SOMEONE
KNOWN TO YOU AS ME
AND I WILL BET MY LIFE
YOU WANT THE SAME.

COME AND SING
A SIMPLE SONG OF FREEDOM.
SING IT
LIKE YOU NEVER SUNG BEFORE.
LET IT FILL THE AIR,
TELL PEOPLE EVERYWHERE
THAT WE,
THE PEOPLE HERE,
DON'T WANT A WAR.

SEVEN HUNDRED MILLION,
ARE YOU LISTENING?
MOST OF WHAT YOU READ
IS MADE OF LIES.
BUT SPEAKING ONE TO ONE,
AIN'T IT EVERYBODY'S SUN
TO WAKE UP IN THE MORNING
WHEN WE RISE?

COME AND SING
A SIMPLE SONG OF FREEDOM.
SING IT
LIKE YOU NEVER SUNG BEFORE.
LET IT FILL THE AIR,
TELL PEOPLE EVERYWHERE
THAT WE,
THE PEOPLE HERE,
DON'T WANT A WAR.

BROTHER YEVTOSHENKO,
ARE YOU BUSY?
IF NOT,
WON'T YOU DROP A FRIEND
A LINE
AND TELL ME IF THE MAN
WHO IS PLOWING UP YOUR LAND
HAS GOT THE WAR MACHINE
UPON HIS MIND.

COME AND SING
A SIMPLE SONG OF FREEDOM.
SING IT
LIKE YOU NEVER SUNG BEFORE.
LET IT FILL THE AIR,
TELL PEOPLE EVERYWHERE
THAT WE,
THE PEOPLE HERE,
DON'T WANT A WAR.

NO DOUBT
SOME FOLKS ENJOY DOING BATTLE,
LIKE PRESIDENTS,
PRIME MINISTERS
AND KINGS.
SO LET US BUILD THEM SHELVES
WHERE THEY CAN FIGHT
AMONG THEMSELVES
AND LEAVE THE PEOPLE BE
WHO LIKE TO SING.

COME AND SING
A SIMPLE SONG OF FREEDOM.
SING IT
LIKE YOU NEVER SUNG BEFORE.
LET IT FILL THE AIR,
TELL PEOPLE EVERYWHERE
THAT WE,
THE PEOPLE HERE,
DON'T WANT A WAR.

LET IT FILL THE AIR,
TELL PEOPLE EVERYWHERE
THAT WE,
THE PEOPLE HERE,
DON'T WANT A WAR.

Lyrics I'VE BEEN
ALL OVER THIS COUNTRY,
I'VE BEEN
HALFWAY AROUND THE WORLD.
I'VE BEEN
TRAVELING SO DOGGONE MUCH
THAT I HAVEN'T GOT
A STEADY GIRL.

SOMEBODY TO LOVE,
SOMEBODY TO LOVE.
SOMEBODY TO CALL ME
TURTLE DOVE,
SOMEBODY TO LOVE.

YES, I GUESS
I'VE BEEN LUCKY,
I HAD ME FORTUNE
AND FAME.
BUT I WOULD GIVE UP
MY ROVING DAYS
JUST TO CHANGE
SOME GIRLIE'S NAME.

SOMEBODY TO LOVE,
SOMEBODY TO LOVE.
SOMEBODY TO CALL ME
TURTLE DOVE,
SOMEBODY TO LOVE.

I'VE BEEN HURTING
SUCH A LONG,
LONG TIME.
I'VE BEEN SEARCHING,
WHERE THAT GIRL OF MINE?

WON'T YOU HEAR ME NOW,
IF THERE'S SOMEBODY LISTENING,
WON'T YOU ANSWER MY PLEA?
WON'T YOU SEND ME A GOOD,
GOOD GIRL
JUST TO SPEND HER LIFE
WITH ME.

SOMEBODY TO LOVE,
SOMEBODY TO LOVE.
SOMEBODY TO CALL ME
TURTLE DOVE,
SOMEBODY TO LOVE.

Lyrics SPLISH SPLASH,
I WAS TAKIN' A BATH
'LONG ABOUT SATURDAY NIGHT.
A RUB DUB,
JUST RELAXIN' IN THE TUB,
THINKIN' EV'RY THING
WAS ALL RIGHT.
WELL,
I STEPPED OUT THE TUB,
PUT MY FEET ON THE FLOOR,
I WRAPPED MY TOWEL
AROUND ME
AND I OPENED THE DOOR.
AND THEN
A-SPLISH SPLASH,
I JUMPED BACK
IN THE BATH.
WELL,
HOW WAS I TO KNOW
THERE WAS A PARTY
GOIN' ON?

I WAS A-SPLISHIN'
AND A-SPLASHIN',
I WAS A-ROLLIN'
AND A-STROLLIN',
I WAS A-MOVIN'
AND A-GROOVIN',
WE WAS A-REELIN'
WITH THE FEELIN',
I WAS A-ROLLIN'
AND A-STROLLIN',
MOVIN'
AND A-GROOVIN',
SPLISH SPLASH!

BING BANG,
I SAW THE WHOLE GANG
DANCIN'
ON THE LIVIN' ROOM RUG.
FLIP FLOP,
THEY WERE DOIN' THE BOP,
ALL THE TEENS
HAD THE DANCIN' BUG.
THERE WAS LOLLIPOP
WITHA PEGGY SUE.
GOOD GOLLY,
MISS MOLLIE
WASA EVEN THERE TOO.

AWELLA,
SPLISH SPLASH,
I FORGOT ABOUT THE BATH,
I WENT
AND PUT MY DANCIN' SHOES ON!

I WAS A-SPLISHIN'
AND A-SPLASHIN',
I WAS A-ROLLIN'
AND A-STROLLIN',
I WAS A-MOVIN'
AND A-GROOVIN',
WE WAS A-REELIN'
WITH THE FEELIN',
I WAS A-ROLLIN'
AND A-STROLLIN',
MOVIN'
AND A-GROOVIN',
SPLISH SPLASH!
SPLISH SPLASH!

Lyrics YOU'RE FEELING LOW
AND OH SO SMALL,
THEN SUDDENLY
YOU'RE EIGHT FEET TALL.
SHE JUST WALKED IN THE ROOM
AND THE GLOOMY ROOM
JUST GLOWS;
THAT'S THE WAY LOVE IS,
THAT'S HOW IT GOES

YOU'RE SUCH A DRAG
FROM NINE 'TIL FIVE,
THEN ALL AT ONCE
YOU'RE SO ALIVE.
IT'S JUST THE WAY
SHE WINKS HER EYE
OR WRINKLES HER NOSE;
THAT'S THE WAY LOVE IS,
THAT'S HOW IT GOES

IT'S THE WORLD'S OLDEST
UNSOLVED RIDDLE,
THE KIND OF GAME
YOU JUST CAN'T WIN.
AND IF
YOU COME UP
WITH THE ANSWER,
YOU'RE A BETTER MAN,
SIR,
THAN I,
GUNGA DIN.

SO WHEN THAT TINGLE
HITS YOU DEEP,
AND YOU'RE TIRED
BUT YOU JUST CAN'T SLEEP.
DON'T YOU TAKE MY WORD,
GO AND ASK ANYONE
WHO KNOWS;
THAT'S THE WAY LOVE IS,
THAT'S HOW IT GOES,
THAT'S HOW IT GOES,
THAT'S HOW IT GOES.
