LOVE IS IN THE AIR (Robbie van Leeuwen/Dimitri)
------------------
Madness of love fill my head,
A beautiful girl I just met.
I feel it inside,
I feel it so right,
Love is in the air.

We walk out with head in the sun,
You're talking, we sleep and we run.
Moment's so high,
They're reachin' the sky,
Nothing that we haven't done.

Gulls we meet all around,
Flowers way down on the ground.
She whispers to me,
`I hope you see
Love is in the air.'

My woman, she treats me so fine,
My good, want [...] knows that she's mine.
She's taking my love,
Taking my life,
Her kisses are sweeter than wine.

Good dreams are filling my head,
`Was never so happy,' she said.
I knew it before,
I knew it for sure,
Love was in the air.

La! La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!

OOH WEE THERE'S MUSIC IN ME (Robbie van Leeuwen)
---------------------------
Sometimes I feel a-crying,
Just like a motherless child,
Without the one I love
Life is not [...] cloud.
I want to call down someone now,
Ooh wee, there's music in me,
But you gotta care.

We can shake it, baby,
And have a really good time,
Just you know how to get
Me going out of my mind.
I want to call down someone now,
Ooh wee, there's music in me,
But you gotta care.

Ba ba ba ba ba, bi du da, bi du da.
Da ba ba ba ba, bi du da, bi du da.

I want to call down someone now,
Ooh wee, there's music in me,
But you gotta care.

We can shake it, baby,
And have a really good time,
Just you know how to get
Me going out of my mind.
I want to call down someone now,
Ooh wee, there's music in me,
But you gotta care.

Ba ba ba ba ba, bi du da, bi du da.
Da ba ba ba ba, bi du da, bi du da.

Sitting on the air,
Crying in the hair, little Bertha.
Tell me, what's wrong, Bertha?
Why southern suns shining, Bertha,
Crying for a man who left ya.
Something's wrong,
Hope is gone.

Hurry, hurry, baby, flowers on your way, little Bertha.
Why aren't you dancing, Bertha?
Never saw such a girl like Bertha,
She's crying for a man who left her.
Something's wrong,
Her hope is gone.

For [...] thing such a strain for Bertha,

WHERE MY BABY'S GONE (Robbie van Leeuwen/Dimitri)
--------------------
Where you said my baby's gone?
Where my baby's gone?
Life's so sad, I can't go on,
No, I can't go on.

Went away the other day,
I wonder where my girl can stay.
She didn't call, she didn't write,
She's giving me some sleepless night.

Ev'rybody's telling me,
Yeah, they're telling me,
`Take your time, 'cause now you're free,
Yeah, 'cause now you're free.'

I never met a girl like that,
She was ev'rything I had.
When she's around, when she's in town
The whole wide world seems upside down.

Where you said my baby's gone?
Where my baby's gone?
Life's so sad, I can't go on,
No, I can't go on.

Went away the other day,
I wonder where my girl can stay.
She didn't call, she didn't write,
She's giving me some sleepless night.

Maybe there's another man,
There's another man,
Kissing her so now and then,
Kiss her now and then.

Warning you it isn't true,
A joke like that she'll never do.
Close my eyes, shut my ears,
God bless the day that she appears.

Where you said my baby's gone?
Where my baby's gone?
Life's so sad, I can't go on,
No, I can't go on.

Went away the other day,
I wonder where my girl can stay.
She didn't call, she didn't write,
She's giving me some sleepless night.

BOLL WEEVIL (Robbie van Leeuwen)
-----------
Well the first time I saw the boll weevil
He was a-sittin' on a square.
Well the next time that I saw him
He had his whole family there,
Just a-lookin' for a home,
Just a-lookin' for a home.

Well the farmer took the boll weevil
And pulled him on the red hot sand.
Well the weevil said, `It is some mighty hot,
But I'll take it like a man,
Just a-lookin' for a home,
Just a-lookin' for a home.'

Well the weevil said to the farmer,
`Sell your old machine.
When we fill your cup
You can buy gasoline,
Just a-lookin' for a home,
Just a-lookin' for a home.'

Well if anybody should ask you
Who it was who sang this song,
Say you get a beating from Oklahoma city
With the blue jean on,
Just a-lookin' for a home,
Just a-lookin' for a home.

Wow!

I'LL WRITE YOUR NAME THROUGH THE FIRE (Robbie van Leeuwen)
-------------------------------------
I'll write your name through the fire.
I'll write your name through the fire.
I'll write your name to bring me home again.
I'll write your name through the fire.

And I'm standing there at edge of town,
Gonna get cold when the sun goes down,
Saddle my horse and I'm packin' my clothes.
Where I'm going just the good Lord knows.

I'll write your name through the fire.
I'll write your name through the fire.
I'll write your name to bring me home again.
I'll write your name through the fire.

When morning breaks, yes I'll be gone,
And where I go I don't know,
Have a lonely mind and a lonely heart,
Wounded by your love dart.

I'll write your name through the fire.
I'll write your name through the fire.
I'll write your name to bring me home again.
I'll write your name through the fire.

I'll write your name through the fire.
I'll write your name through the fire.
I'll write your name to bring me home again.
I'll write your name through the fire.

The desert chaps under my feet
With dusty boots I'd ride in the heat,
Pray to my Lord while a wolf howls,
Let me go back, back to my sweet.

I'll write your name through the fire.
I'll write your name through the fire.
I'll write your name to bring me home again.
I'll write your name through the fire.
(One more time)

I'll write your name through the fire.
I'll write your name through the fire.
I'll write your name to bring me home again.
I'll write your name through the fire...

LOVE MACHINE (Robbie van Leeuwen)

Grandma told her daughter's son,
`Boy, without love you can't go on,
That makes the whole world turn around.
The love machine,

Makes your mom feel bound.

Love started with Adam and Eve,
Day over came the first grief,
And now there's still time to learn,
The love machine,
The love machine
Makes the world turn around.'

I'M A WOMAN (Robbie van Leeuwen)

My day love mind is still the same,
Look here, you can't change me
Even if you want to.
Darling, I know just my way.

To share me in my weakness.
You please me very much dear,
If you say yes.

VENUS (Robbie van Leeuwen)
-----
A goddess on a mountain top
Was burning like a silver flame,
The summit of beauty and love,
And Venus was her name.

She's got it,
Yeah, baby, she's got it.
Well, I'm your Venus,
I'm your fire at your desire.
Well, I'm your Venus,
I'm your fire at your desire.

Making ev'ry man mad;
Black as a dark night she was,
Got what no one else had.

Yeah, baby, she's got it.
Well, I'm your Venus,
I'm your fire at your desire.

CALIFORNIA HERE I COME (Robbie van Leeuwen)
----------------------
Got a long, long way to go
Over her dusty roads.
Take my old brown suitcase with me
And leave at the break of dawn.

I'm not afraid of the distance,
Some time on my side.
Hear me singing my song,
California here I come.

When the sun's going down,
Silence is the only sound.
All restless are the nights
When nobody's around.

I'm not afraid of the distance,
Some time on my side.
Hear me singing my song,
California here I come.

Day after day I'm going
Over her dusty roads.
How long will this go on?
Until I'm there where I belong.

But now troubles are over,
I wipe off the dust off my boots.
Hear me singing my song,
California now to come,
Now to come.

But now troubles are over,
I wipe off the dust off my boots.
Hear me singing my song,
California now to come,
Now to come,
Now to come.

LONG AND LONESOME ROAD (Robbie van Leeuwen)
----------------------
On a Sunday night while driving my car,
In the sky a fallin' star,
Telling myself I don't go too far and trust
By the sound of the rain.

Well I wonder, well I wonder where I am?
'Cause there's a long and lonesome road
That will find out world of you and me, babe.
There's a long and lonesome road
That will find out world like it used to be, babe.

Somebody there, do show me the way,
Yes, I'm willing to pay,
And this dear old man can tell me the day,
Don't know what happens to me.

Well I wonder, well I wonder where I am?
'Cause there's a long and lonesome road
That will find out world of you and me, babe.

LOVE BUZZ (Robbie van Leeuwen)
---------
Would you believe me when I tell you
You're the king of my dreams?
Please don't deceive me when I hurt you,
It just ain't the way it seems.

Can't you hear my love buzz?
Can't you hear my love buzz?
Can't you hear my love buzz?

I need you like a desert needs rain,
I would rather like to die,

So spread your wings and fly.

THE BUTTERFLY AND I (Robbie van Leeuwen)
-------------------
The butterfly and I
Have a message from the dawn.
The butterfly and I
Have a message from the dawn.

Love whispers through the air,
Love whispers through the air,
Just look around
And have your share now.

The butterfly and I
Have heard a very strange sound.
The butterfly and I
Have heard a very strange sound.

Pick it up before it's too late,

Have it now,
Your bundle of joy, don't wait.

Poor boy, poor boy,
Are you a long way from home?
Poor boy, are you down
And out and all alone?

Poor boy, poor boy,
Did you spend your very last dime?
Poor boy, what you gonna do?
You ain't got much time.

Ain't there nobody for better or worse,
Can't be nobody who cares.
Can't you find a [...]
You're so lonely and blue.

ALASKA COUNTRY (Robbie van Leeuwen)
--------------
Don't know a better way of being alone
Down in my land, my beautiful land.
A nature of God all covered with snow,
A pleasure to be and good times to spend.

Alaska country,
Stay the way you are.
Alaska country,
You never cheated me.
Now one and only,
Alaska country.

Seven days a week and seven lonely nights,
Plenty of time to find myself again.
So that I'll know what I was created for,
To have a good life where there's no pain.

Alaska country,
Stay the way you are.
Alaska country,
You never cheated me.
Now one and only,

But after all I can't let you go,
'Cause I love you so, daemon lover.
Daemon lover,
Daemon lover,

LITTLE COOLING PLANET (Robbie van Leeuwen)
---------------------
I warned you in a crowded street,
I'm so proud with you next to me.
My eyes will show that he's my man.
Keep out of the way and let us be.

Hey, hey,
Little cooling planet,
Little cooling planet.
You make my heart beat, but
You get me to beg and shout,
Little cooling planet.

I warned you in a night of storm
With thunder and lightning, and oceans of rain.
I cuddle up real close to you,
Afraid that all the storm will be in vain.

Hey, hey,
Little cooling planet,
Little cooling planet.
You make my heart beat, but
You make me to beg and shout.
Little cooling planet.

Hey, hey,
Little cooling planet,
Little cooling planet.
You make my heart beat, but

When night's black is returning to blue.
I'd show you now the means of life
And what a woman in love can do.

Hey, hey,
Little cooling planet,
Little cooling planet.
You make my heart beat, but
You make me to beg and shout,
Little cooling planet.
You make my heart beat, but
You make me to beg and shout,

I LOVE VOODOO MUSIC (Robbie van Leeuwen)
-------------------
When there's silence all around
I still hear that fascinating sound.
It keeps me awake at night,
It's the sound that's so right.

I love voodoo music,
Just a name drives me insane.
You'll love voodoo music,
Yes, you will.

I'll never find a better way
To explain how empty were my days.
Without that pounding beat
My life ain't complete.

I love voodoo music,
Just a name drives me insane.
You'll love voodoo music,
Yes, you will.

I'll never find a better way
To explain how empty were my days.
Without that pounding beat

SEVEN IS A NUMBER IN MAGIC (Robbie van Leeuwen)
--------------------------
Farmer's get afraid,
He has to feed his children,
He has to feed his wife.
He ain't got money but let me tell you now
He's rough in his life.

Seven is a number in magic,
Seven is a number in magic,
Seven is a number in M. A. G. I. C.

Gilbert, Gene and John,
He got an automobile,
He got and doesn't choose.
A guy like him knows a secret how you
Never ever can lose.

Seven is a number in magic,
Seven is a number in magic,
Seven is a number in M. A. G. I. C.

Seven is a number in magic,
Seven is a number in magic,
Seven is a number in M. A. G. I. C.

But they had to keep their fingers crossed
And hope they would return.

Seven is a number in M. A. G. I. C.

Seven is a number in magic,
Seven is a number in magic,
Seven is a number in magic (wooh),

KEEP IT IF YOU WANT IT (Robbie van Leeuwen)
----------------------
Keep it if you want it,
Keep your love if you want it,
But you have to say it
Or else nobody knows.

Keep it if you want it,
Keep your love if you want it,
But you have to say it
Or else nobody knows.

Sometimes it hurts
And sometimes it don't.
It's so mean when you say you will
And right after that you won't.

Keep it if you want it,
Keep your love if you want it,
But you have to say it
Or else nobody knows.

I knock on your door
And nobody is there.
I can't stand insecurity,
So tell me please do you care.

Keep it if you want it,
Keep your love if you want it,
But you have to say it
Or else nobody knows.

Keep it if you want it,
Keep your love if you want it,
But you have to say it
Or else nobody knows.

WATER BOY (Robbie van Leeuwen)
---------
If you wonder where the water comes from,
Come from the well on the hill.
If you wonder where the well comes from,
Come from the rain, Lord.

Water boy, water boy,
Water, water boy.
Water boy, water boy,
Bring some water now.

If you wonder where the rain comes from,
Come from the sky, Lord.
If you wonder where the water comes from,
Come from the well on the hill.

Water boy, water boy,
Water, water boy.
Water boy, water boy,
Bring some water now.

VELVET HEAVEN (Robbie van Leeuwen)
-------------
When I'm down I go into
The land of dreams built for two.
It's a world of consolation
And there's no need of any conversation.

Oh-oh-oh-oh, velvet heaven,
High in the sky above,
I think of you
When I'm blue in love,
Blue in love,
Blue in love,
Blue in love.

Come to me and I'll be your guide,
The moon never fails tonight.
We'll be only disturbed by
Some gently sounds out of the sky.

Oh-oh-oh-oh, velvet heaven,
High in the sky above,
I think of you
When I'm blue in love,
Blue in love,
Blue in love,
Blue in love,
Blue in love,
Blue in love,
Blue in love.

LOVE SWEET LOVE (Robbie van Leeuwen)
---------------
Although you're not a millionaire,
To live my life, oh, I need you there.
Although you have no handsome face,
In my heart there's just one place.

That's love sweet love,
That's love sweet love,
That's love sweet love,
Yes, love stands above a lot of things.

Although you made some big mistakes
Which gave me sorrow and heartaches,
And when you're too late at dates,
I don't care, I'm always the one to wait.

That's love sweet love,
That's love sweet love,
That's love sweet love,
Yes, love stands above a lot of things.
Paw, paw.
Paw, paw.
Paw, paw.
Paw, paw.

Although you can't dance like Fred Astaire
And you ain't got a house in Bel Air,
Still you are my exclusive movie star,
I will take you for what you are.

That's love sweet love,
That's love sweet love,
That's love sweet love,
Yes, love stands above a lot of things.

That's love sweet love,
That's love sweet love,
That's love sweet love,
Yes, love stands above a lot of things.

I SAW YOUR FACE (Reggis Mull)
---------------
Ah!

I saw your face
And I knew
I needed you
And your eyes so blue
When I saw your face,
I saw your face,
When I saw your face.

I saw your face
(Baby, baby, I saw your face)
And you turned
(Baby, baby, I saw your face)
And my love was burned
(Baby, baby, I saw your face)
For lady turn.
Just show your face,
When I saw your face,
When I saw your face.

You left it down
And only pictures remain
Along with tears and pain.

Ah!

I saw your face
(Baby, baby, I saw your face)
And your hair
(Baby, baby, I saw your face)
So long, wow-woh.
(Baby, baby, I saw your face)
Want to be around your face,
When I saw your face,
When I saw your face,
I saw your face.

Ah!

DON'T YOU SEE (Robbie van Leeuwen)
-------------
Don't you see if you need a friend
You've just to call me?
Don't you see if you need some sweet
I'll be your candy?

I'm waiting patiently
Until the day comes that you gonna need me.

And when love comes let it come beautiful,
Let it be worth waiting for you and let it be wonderful.

Don't you see?
Don't you see?

THE BIRD OF PARADISE (Robbie van Leeuwen)
--------------------
One fine day
I had a long distance call,
I called my guy, he's waiting far away,
He said hello and I got that good feeling.

And the bird of paradise
Flew upon my nose.
And the bird of paradise flew upon my nose,
Flew upon my nose.

His voice was low
And I heard him say,
`Come, little baby, come, silly soul,
You gotta know I need you so badly.'

And the bird of paradise
Flew upon my nose.
And the bird of paradise flew upon my nose,
Flew upon my nose.

And the bird of paradise
Flew upon my nose.
And the bird of paradise flew upon my nose,
Flew upon my nose.

MOONLIGHT NIGHT (Robbie van Leeuwen)
---------------
Do you, do you remember
The smell of grass and the perfume of love?
That thrill was in our hearts
And for us that was just enough.
In that moonlight night I got you spell bound.

Do you, do you remember
That sweet sigh of love in my ear?
The night was ours
And the paradise was coming near.
In that moonlight night I got you spell bound.

I walked, I talked,
I smiled in a dream,
I squeezed, I kissed,
I made love in a dream.
Oh, that was something I never will forget.
Oh, that was something I never will forget.

Do you, do you remember

SLEEPLESS AT MIDNIGHT (Robbie van Leeuwen)
---------------------
I enjoyed your company,
I enjoyed your smile.
Sometimes we were sitting under a tree
After we walked a mile.

But suddenly you left me
And now I'm so lonely.
And sleepless at midnight,
Sleepless at midnight,
Sleepless at midnight.

We were dreaming together
About a home and a child or two.
Our love was like sunny weather
And I thought I could depend on you.

But suddenly you left me
And now I'm so lonely
And sleepless at midnight,
Sleepless at midnight,
Sleepless at midnight.

Sleepless at midnight,
Sleepless at midnight,
Sleepless at midnight.

I'LL FOLLOW THE SUN (Robbie van Leeuwen)
-------------------
I'll follow the sun,
That's what I'm gonna do,
Trying to forget all about you.

I'll follow the sun
Till the end of time.
No more pain and no more tears for me.

I'll follow the sun,
Birds will show me how,
'Cause suddenly it seems my eyes are dry.

I'll follow the sun
Till I see the light.
Apollo comes near when the time is right.

I'll follow the sun,
That's what I'm gonna do,
Trying to forget all about you.

I'll follow the sun
Till the end of time.
No more pain and no more...

LONG AND LONESOME ROAD (Robbie van Leeuwen)
----------------------
R o b b i e: Next song is "Long Lonesome Road".

On a Sunday night while driving my car
In the sky a fallin' star,
Telling myself I don't go too far and trust
By the sound of the rain.

Well I wonder, well I wonder where I am?
'Cause there's a long and lonesome road
That will find out world of you and me, babe.
Gonna... long and lonesome road
That will find out world like it used to be, babe.

Somebody there, do show me the way,
Yes, I'm willing to pay,
And this dear old man who came
Tell me the day, don't know what happen to me.

Well I wonder, well I wonder where I am?
'Cause there's a long and lonesome road
That will find out world of you and me, babe.
There's a long and lonesome road
That will find out world like it used to be, babe.

On a Sunday night while driving my car
In the sky a fallin' star,
Telling myself I don't go too far and trust
By the sound of the rain.

Well I wonder, well I wonder where I am?
'Cause there's a long and lonesome road
That will find out world of you and me, babe.
There's a long and lonesome road

BOLL WEEVIL (Robbie van Leeuwen)
-----------
R o b b i e: And from the first LP album, the first album played song "Boll
Weevil".

Well the first time I saw the boll weevil
He was a-sittin' on a square.
Well the next time that I saw him
He had his whole family there,
Just a-lookin' for a home,
Just a-lookin' for a home,
Just a-lookin' for a home,
Just a-lookin' for a home.

Well the farmer took the boll weevil
And pulled him on the red hot sand.
Well the weevil said, `It is mighty hot,
But I'll take it like a man,
Just a-lookin' for a home,
Just a-lookin' for a home,
Just a-lookin' for a home,
Just a-lookin' for a home.'

Well the farmer said to the weevil,
`Sell your old machine.
When we fill your cup
You can buy gasoline,
Just a-lookin' for a home,
Just a-lookin' for a home,
Just a-lookin' for a home,
Just a-lookin' for a home.'

Well if anybody should ask you
Who it was who sang this song,
Say you get a beating from Oklahoma city
With your blue jean on,
Just a-lookin' for a home,
Just a-lookin' for a home,
Just a-lookin' for a home,
Just a-lookin' for a home.

R o b b i e: Thank you.
M a r i s k a: Thank you. Thank you.

BLOSSOM LADY (Robbie van Leeuwen)
------------
Once I had a boy-friend,
He was so tall and strong,
And he knew what I needed
When I was all alone.
Then he said to me,
`I'll care for you day and night,
I'll never forsake you.
Yes, I stay by your side.'

`Don't be afraid, girl,
You're the one, the one I love.
Don't be afraid, girl,
You're the one, the one I love.'
He said, `'Cause you're my blossom lady,
You're my blossom lady,
My blossom lady,
My blossom lady.'

`You're my blossom lady,
My blossom lady,
My blossom lady.'

But one year later
I was as lonely as I was before.
I saw my boy-friend
At some other girl's door.
And there was that hurt again,
As so on day we broke away,
Then I remembered
What he used to say.

`Don't be afraid, girl,
You're the one, the one I love.
Don't be afraid, girl,
You're the one, the one I love.'
He said, `'Cause you're my blossom lady,
You're my blossom lady,
My blossom lady,
My blossom lady.'

M a r i s k a: Thank you.
R o b b i e: Thank you.
M a r i s k a: Thank you.

MIGHTY JOE (Robbie van Leeuwen)

R o b b i e: And this is a song released after "Venus", it's "Mighty Joe".

He'll teach you all that you don't know
And make you cry before it's through,
And I'll bet you'll like it, too.

Did you hear about Mighty Joe?

Beware, beware when he was around,
Mighty Joe with the bass voice.

Well Mighty Joe was here last year, I'll tell you,
Just like you I had no fear.
I fell for him baby and then
He made of me a woman.

Did you hear about Mighty Joe?

Won't you hear... da da... no sense.

NEVER MARRY A RAILROAD MAN (Robbie van Leeuwen)
--------------------------
R o b b i e: The next song I think you all will know, 'cause it's the song
"Railroad Man".

Have you been broken-hearted once or twice?
If it's yes, how did you feel at his crossed lines?
If it's no, you need this good advice.

Never marry a railroad man,
He loves you ev'ry now and then
His heart is at his new train.
No, no, no!
Don't fall in love with a railroad man.
If you do forget him if you can.
You're better off without him.
Ah!

Have you ever been restless in your bed
And so lonely that your eyes became wet?
Let me tell you then one thing.

Mm mm mm mm mm mm mm.
Mm mm mm mm mm mm mm.
Mm mm mm mm.
No, no, no!

Never marry a railroad man,
He loves you ev'ry now and then
His heart is at his new train.

Don't fall in love with a railroad man.
If you do forget him if you can.
You're better off without him.
No, no, no!

VENUS (Robbie van Leeuwen)

A goddess on a mountain top
Was burning like a silver flame,
The summit of beauty in love,
And Venus was her name.

Yeah, baby, she's got it.
Well, I'm your Venus,
I'm your fire at your desire.
Well, I'm your Venus
And I'm your fire at your desire.

Making ev'ry man mad;
Black as a dark night she was,
Got what no one else had.

Yeah, baby, she's got it.
Well, I'm your Venus
And I'm your fire at your desire.

I AIN'T NEVER (Mel Tillis/Webb Pierce)
-------------
Well, I ain't never, I ain't never
Seen nobody like you,
No, no, no, never, ever, ever
Seen nobody like you.

You call me up and say you'll meet me at nine,
I have to hurry, hurry but I'm fair on time.
I walk right up and knock on your door,
The landlord said he ain't here no more.

But I never, oh darling, never
Seen nobody like you,
But I love you, yeah, I love you,
I love you just the same.

Well, I ain't never, I ain't never
Seen nobody like you,
No, no, no, never, ever, ever

You got me a-living in a horny dream.
You make me do things I don't wanna do,
All friends are saying what's a-wrong with you?

I ain't never, oh darling, never
Seen nobody like you,
Oh, but I loved you, yeah, I love you,
I love you just the same.

NAVAJO TEARS (Robbie van Leeuwen)
------------
Man came to ruin in the land of the Tomahawk
Where wants the Buffalo graze do high way to call this place.
Man shot them down to have some more fun
And only a few had a chance to run.

Navajo tears, navajo tears fell
Like the water from the mountains.
Navajo tears, navajo tears fell
Like the water from the mountains.

Man came to ruin in the land of the Tomahawk,
What could a knife do against rifles?
Many stories are written in the sand,
And I wonder when people go hand in hand.

Navajo tears, navajo tears fell
Like the water from the mountains.
Navajo tears, navajo tears fell
Like the water from the mountains.

SHADOWS (Robbie van Leeuwen)
-------
Golden shadows in your hair
When I see you walking there,
The shadows in your hair.

Velvet shadows in your eyes
Never tell and tell so lies,
The shadows in your eyes.

Dreaming of the colours of a rainbow,
Dream about a boy I love.
You're my one and only desire,
Baby, set my soul on fire.

Silver shadows in your face
Lovely like a darling lace,
The shadows in your face.

Dreaming of the colours of a rainbow,
Dream about a boy I love.
You're my one and only desire,
Baby, set my soul on fire.

Silver shadows in your face
Lovely like a darling lace,
The shadows in your face.

Golden shadows in your hair
When I see you walking there,
The shadows in your hair.

Velvet shadows in your eyes
Never tell and tell so lies,
The shadows in your eyes.

Goodbye, Joe, me gotta go, me oh my, oh.
Me gotta go pole the pirogue down the bayou.
My John, the sweetest one, oh me, oh my, oh.
A son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou.

Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and fillet gumbo,
'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my, my cher amio.
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar, and be gay-o.
A son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou.
Eeh!

Thibodaux, Fontaineaux, the place is buzzin',
Kinfolk come to see John now by the dozen.
A dress in style and go hog wild, me oh my, oh.
A son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou.

Mm, Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and fillet gumbo,

INKPOT (Robbie van Leeuwen)
------
Put some love in your heart
Like you put the ink in the inkpot.
Learn it and you will enjoy it baby
To put the ink in the inkpot.
Shoo-bee-doo-wa, shoo-bee-doo-wa.
Shoo-bee-doo-wa, shoo-bee-doo-wa.

You can play with everything,
But you cannot play with your heart.
Foolin' around makes it mean
And then (wop!) I'm feeling that we'll be apart.

Put some love in your heart
Like you put the ink in the inkpot.
Learn it and you will enjoy it baby
To put the ink in the inkpot.
Shoo-bee-doo-wa, shoo-bee-doo-wa.
Shoo-bee-doo-wa, shoo-bee-doo-wa.

Your momma taught you how to pray,
But once you will be a grown-up girl
And what you also have to learn
That (wop!) is how to love somebody in this world.

Put some love in your heart
Like you put the ink in the inkpot.
Learn it and you will enjoy it baby
To put the ink in the inkpot.
Shoo-bee-doo-wa, shoo-bee-doo-wa.
Shoo-bee-doo-wa, shoo-bee-doo-wa.
Shoo-bee-doo-wa, shoo-bee-doo-wa.
Shoo-bee-doo-wa, shoo-bee-doo-wa.

TOBACCO ROAD (Jerry Loudermilk)
------------
I was born in a dump,
Momma died and daddy get drunk.
Left me here to die or grow
In the middle of Tobacco Road.

Grew up in a rusty shack,
All I had was hangin' on my back.
Only you know how I loathe
This place called Tobacco Road.

But it's home,
The only life I've ever known.
Only you know how I loathe
(Tobacco Road)
Tobacco Road,
(Tobacco Road)
Tobacco Road,

With the help and the graze from above.

Bring it back to Tobacco Road.

Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh,
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh.

Bring dynamite and a crane,
Blow it up, start all over again.
Build to a town be proud to show,
Give the name Tobacco Road,
(Tobacco Road)

Tobacco Road.

The night is so young
And to us it belongs.

WHO SAVE MY SOUL (Robbie van Leeuwen)
----------------
I see you threw my love away
And cloudy seems ev'ry day.
You were so cruel, I had to cry out loud.
Who'll save my soul?

Ain't got no love from you,
Don't know what I'm gonna do
While this world treats me so bad this time.

Still wonder why we simply part
And wonder what you feel in your heart.
My tears are falling and my heart is crying.
Who'll save my soul?

Ain't got no love from you,
Don't know what I'm gonna do
While this world treats me so bad this time.

Ain't got no love from you,
Don't know what I'm gonna do
While this world treats me so bad this time.

RED LEAVES I+II (Robbie van Leeuwen)

THE QUEEN (Robbie van Leeuwen)

Wake up early each morning,
Wond'ring in the morning sun.
Why this world seems unstumble?
Gotta see the sun rising
And the flowers awaking.
While this world seem forsaken,
I'm the queen of this country!

The river is singing the same song,
Being picked 'round by the birds.
When this world seem forgotten
Gotta see the sun rising
And the flowers awaking.
While this world seem forsaken,
I'm the queen of this country!

I MELT LIKE BUTTER (Robbie van Leeuwen)
------------------
A bird in nature's held
Under my heart now,
Making it weak, give it suffer be in heart
And that mentions you, honey.
I melt like butter when you look at me
In a special way.

I count the silver stars
In the sky of above, yeah,
And ev'ry share is another day of love,
Share with you, honey.
I melt like butter when you look at me
In a special way.

I feel it in my head,
I feel it in my heart,
Feel it, love you so,
Feel it, can't resist you.
No, no, no!

RATTLER (Robbie van Leeuwen)
-------
Rattler is a little dog,
He's got the funny face.
His ears are long, his eyes are sad,
He could be any race.

Hear Rattler hear,
I'll give you a home you never had before,
You don't have to back any more.
Hear Rattler hear,

And now he follows me around.

He never left me down.

NEVER RELEASE THE ONE YOU LOVE (Robbie van Leeuwen)
------------------------------
Never release the one you love
For you find yourself alone
You've got to remember this:
Alone is none.

If you find the way to make him stay,
Be thankful for it ev'ry day.
Don't, don't ever find,
In ev'rything you're so right.

Never release the one you love
For you find yourself alone
You've got to remember this:
Alone is none.

Make him think there's only you,
Just like you wonder too.
Don't give her a chance
To find another romance.

Woh-oh-oh!
Woh-oh-oh!
Woh-woh-woh-woh-woh-woh-woh-woh-woh-woh!
Woh-woh-woh-woh-woh-woh-woh-woh-woh-woh!

Never release the one you love
For you find yourself alone
You've got to remember this:
Alone is none.

Never release the one you love.
Never release the one you love.
Never release the one you love.

A WASTE OF TIME (Robbie van Leeuwen)
---------------
When people told me you could break my heart,
I believed you when you said we could ever part.
That was the dream, I hope it will come true,
But instead you broke my heart in two.

It was a waste of time,
Ain't nobody fool but mine.
It was a waste of time,
Ain't nobody fool but mine.
It was a waste of time
When I fell in love with you.

You kept on telling me ev'rything so right,
But you cheated me while I desired a sight.
Never believe you could [...] that way,
But now I see I gotta find my way.

It was a waste of time,
Ain't nobody fool but mine.
It was a waste of time,
Ain't nobody fool but mine.
It was a waste of time
When I fell in love with you.

It was a waste of time,
Ain't nobody fool but mine.
It was a waste of time,
Ain't nobody fool but mine.
It was a waste of time
When I fell in love with you.

It was a waste of time,
Ain't nobody fool but mine.
It was a waste of time,
Ain't nobody fool but mine.
It was a waste of time
When I fell in love with you.

WAIT (Robbie van Leeuwen)
----
Wait! I wanna talk to you.
Wait! I can't live without you.
Give me a little chance again,
I'll show you I'm worth to be a woman.

Your heart must stand still in empty place.
I can't believe that you forgot my face.
Oh baby, oh baby,
Please say you still love me.

Wait! I wanna talk to you.
Wait! I can't live without you.

It's so hard when nobody cares
And nobody shares your sorrow afraid.
Oh baby, oh baby,

I can't believe that you forgot my face.
Oh baby, oh baby,
Please say you still love me.

THE DEVIL AND THE ANGEL (Robbie van Leeuwen)

The devil and the angel are both been you.
The devil and the angel are both been you.
Ooh-ooh.

And sometimes you are as cold as ice.
What goes on in your mind
When you say you'll never leave me behind?
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh!
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh!

The devil and the angel are both been you.
The devil and the angel are both been you.
Ooh-ooh.

But sometimes you change and make me cry.
You are fine, you're mine,
But sometimes you like to break my heart.
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh!
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh!
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh!

ROCK IN THE SEA (Robbie van Leeuwen)
---------------
I wish I was a bird in the sky,
I wish I was a bird in the sky,
Like a bird in the sky.
I'd sail high and dry,
I wish I was a bird in the sky,
I wish I was a bird in the sky.

I wish I was a mole in the ground,
I wish I was a mole in the ground,
Like a mole in the ground.
I'd throw this mountain down,
I wish I was a mole in the ground,
I wish I was a mole in the ground.

I'm so glad I can sing,
I don't want furs and rings,
Only beauty of nature
Matters to me, yeah.

I wish I was a rock in the sea,
I wish I was a rock in the sea,
Like a rock in the sea.
Nothing could budge me,
I wish I was a rock in the sea,
I wish I was a rock in the sea.

I wish I was a rock in the sea,
I wish I was a rock in the sea,
I wish I was a rock in the sea,
I wish I was a rock in the sea,
I wish I was a rock in the sea,
I wish I was a rock in the sea,
I wish I was a rock in the sea,
I wish I was a rock in the sea,
I wish I was a rock in the sea.

I'VE SPENT MY MONEY (Robbie van Leeuwen)
-------------------
Spent my money,
What can I do?
I feel so helpless
And I feel so blue.

Trouble is nobody who wants you to know
When you're down and out.

Spent my money,
Ev'rything went wrong,
Only bad love
Came along.

Trouble is nobody who wants you to know
When you're down and out.

Who could give me back my pride
And get me back and raise again?
Who could help me with all his mind?
I need somebody's help in hand.

Spent my money,
What can I do?
I feel so helpless
And I feel so blue.

Trouble is nobody who wants you to know
When you're down and out,
Down and out,
Down and out,
Down and out,
Down and out,
Down and out,
Down and out,
Down and out,
Down and out,
Down and out.

WILL THE CIRCLE BE UNBROKEN (Robbie van Leeuwen)
---------------------------
Will the circle, ah, be unbroken
By and by, Lord, ah, by and by.
There's a bell on all my waiting
In the sky, Lord, in the sky.

But I was standing by the window
On the cold and rainy day.
When I saw there was [...]
Come and carry my man away.

Undertaker, undertaker,
Undertaker, please drive slow,
'Cause the body, ah, you are carrying,
Lord, I hate to see him go.

Now will the circle, ah, be unbroken
By and by, Lord, ah, by and by.
There's a bell on all my waiting
In the sky, Lord, in the sky.

EARLY IN THE MORNING (Robbie van Leeuwen)
--------------------
Early in the morning I went home to you.
Early in the morning I went home to you.

I've been on the road for a long, long time,
But now I'm coming on to make you mine.
I'll love you so
Till the end of time.

Early in the morning I went home to you.
Early in the morning I went home to you.

Can I beg a change away from me?
When you give an eye I feel so weak.
You make me move
From hair to knee.

Early in the morning I went home to you.
Early in the morning I went home to you.
Early in the morning
Went, ah, went, ah, went home to you.

I BUILT MY WORLD AROUND YOU (Robbie van Leeuwen)
---------------------------
I built my world around you
For that's what you wanna too,
But after all it seems
You had many other dreams.

Woh-oh-ooh-oh, yeah.
Woh-oh-ooh-oh, yeah.
I built my world around you,
All for that's what you wanna too.
I built my world around you,
All for that's what you wanna too.

There was something you never said
And all the good times we had.
When I enough can't satisfy you
You want that love true and true.

Woh-oh-ooh-oh, yeah.
Oh-oh-ooh-oh, yeah.
I built my world around you,
All for that's what you wanna too.
I built my world around you,
All for that's what you wanna too.

DON'T LET YOUR RIGHT HAND KNOW (Robbie van Leeuwen)
------------------------------
Don't let your right hand know
What your left hand do.
Don't let your right hand know
What your left hand do.
Don't let your right hand know
What your left hand do.

Don't let your tears fall down
When your baby's gone.
Don't let your tears fall down
When your baby's gone.
Don't let your tears fall down
When your baby's gone.

Yeah!

Don't let your right hand know
What your left hand do.
Don't let your right hand know

What your left hand do.

Don't let your tears fall down
When your baby's gone.
Don't let your tears fall down
When your baby's gone.
Don't let your tears fall down
When your baby's gone.

BROKEN HEART (Robbie van Leeuwen)
------------
There will be a day
That you go away
And I have to stay
With the broken heart,
With the broken heart.

I nearly told it up to you,
You decide what you're gonna do.
I see in your eyes
That we are through.

There will be a day
That you go away
And I have to stay
With the broken heart,
With the broken heart.

Now I hear this old song,
I can't go on.
Why are you so hard?
I want your lovin'.
Don't let me stay
With the broken heart,
With the broken heart,
With the broken heart,
With the broken heart.

TIME SLIPS AWAY (Robbie van Leeuwen)
---------------
There ain't no haze a shade,
Bees fly buzzing around the flowers.
Working hard till the end of day,
While I come to be ours.

I saw the clouds high in the sky,
All different but all the same.
In that times colour they came and went
While they played their game.

Yesterday, yesterday to remind us
Time slips away,
Time slips away, time slips away.

Yesterday, yesterday to remind us
Time slips away,
Time slips away, time slips away.

Yesterday, yesterday to remind us
Time slips away,
Time slips away, time slips away.

And that's how it is, baby, the world turns on,
Why you don't and I don't?
So let's sing all together now,
So let's sing all together now.

Yesterday, yesterday to remind us
Time slips away,
Time slips away, time slips away.

DOWEE DOWEE (Robbie van Leeuwen)
-----------
When you're down and out, boy,
For sure I will be there
To protect you to all evil,
Ev'rybody's gotta beware.

I'm the heat for ev'rything,
I can let the river flow.
Yeah, yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
We'll broke the loser's temperature
When it's time for me to go.
Woh-oh.

SO FAR FROM HOME (Robbie van Leeuwen)
----------------
Wake up this morning, feeling fine
And something special on my mind.
Your message pretty good
And quite understood.
Now I will come through,
But I'm so far from home.

[...] the way phone [...]
And dangerous rotations,
Ev'rything is so inviting
And very, very exciting.
Still I will come through,
But I'm so far from home.

I can't wait to see you walk.
I can't wait to hear you talk.
I can't wait to see your smile.
I can't wait to hear you say
You will love me day by day.

Still I will come through,
But I'm so far from home,
But I'm so far from home.

TAKE YOUR TIME (Robbie van Leeuwen/Sieb Warner)
--------------
People work so hard that they get heart attacks,
The speed of life is much too high.
I just a wonder, babe
Why they can't slow down?

Take your time,
Take your time,
Hey you.

The man next door, he always drove too fast,
He wouldn't listen to my words.
Now it's too late for my advice,
'Cause he's lying under the ground.

Take your time,
Take your time,
Hey you.

A friend of mine, he fell in love one day,
The poor fool didn't take his time.
Now he's in matrimonial state,
Has screaming children all around.

Take your time,
Take your time,
Hey you.

A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN (Robbie van Leeuwen)
----------------------
Got a little bit of heaven
In this lonely world.
Got a little bit of heaven
In this lonely world.
I got a boy with the blue jean on,
We gonna jerk all night long,
Singing "Hallelujah",
Ah, now our favourite song.

I gotta spell it thru' my head and my feet,
When I see him on the card and where we always meet,
My heart's in thrill-a-dee,
My heart's in thrill-a-doo.
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh.

Got a little bit of heaven
In this lonely world.
Got a little bit of heaven
In this lonely world.
I got a boy with the blue jean on,
We gonna jerk all night long,
Singing "Hallelujah",
Ah, now our favourite song.

Got a little bit of heaven
In this lonely world.
Got a little bit of heaven
In this lonely world.
I got a boy with the blue jean on,
We gonna jerk all night long,
Singing "Hallelujah",
Ah, now our favourite song.

NOW HE'S GONE (Robbie van Leeuwen)
-------------
My heart, my soul, my life was for him,
He was my sunshine.
He was mine, all mine.
Now he's gone and didn't even say goodbye.

Now he's gone,
Now he's gone,
Now he's gone
And he wouldn't even tell me the reason why.

Oh, how we loved to dance, the cruisin' [...]
Well I guess he's gone to Frisco to dance out there.
When I woke up this morning
He was gone, gone, gone.

I met some more friends downtown,
They asked me then,
`Where is your superman?'
I told them one morning I woke up all alone.

Now he's gone,
Now he's gone,
Now he's gone
And he wouldn't even tell me the reason why.

Now he's gone,
Now he's gone,
Now he's gone
And he wouldn't even tell me the reason why.

DIANA IN HER DREAMS (Robbie van Leeuwen)
-------------------
Ev'ry night when the clock strikes twelve
A voice of devotion
Fills Diana so completely
With strange emotion.

Diana in her dreams,
Bend a silver bow upon the medal's low.
Diana in her dreams
And then a silver bow.

Na-na-na-na-na, na-na-na-na-na,
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah.

What is your rights a mean-black horse
In that defence of this fang.
Till the morning breaks she is
Surrounded by a horse attend.

Diana in her dreams
Bend a silver bow upon the medal's low.
Diana in her dreams
And then a silver bow.

Na-na-na-na-na, na-na-na-na-na,
Ah-ah, na, na, na.

Ev'ry night when the clock strikes twelve

Ah-ah, na, na, na.

JUST A SONG (Robbie van Leeuwen)
-----------
My life,
This is my life,
I can do anything in my life.

You are my world,

IN MY TIME OF DYIN' (Robbie van Leeuwen)
-------------------
In my time of dyin' I want nobody to moan.
All I want from you to do is take my body home.
Well, well, well,
Well, well, well,
Well.
So I can die easy.

Meet me, Lord, meet me,
Meet me in the middle of the air.
When the evening falls, my Lord,
Won't you meet me when the night is there?
Well, well, well,
Well, well, well,

WILD ROSE (Robbie van Leeuwen)

From the early morning dew
Till the end of night.

Save your love now
And save it well now,
Save your doll just for me.
Let me depend on
Your love forever,
'Cause I can't live without you any more.

Don't let the wind of change blow.

DEVIL'S SUITE (Robbie van Leeuwen)
-------------
I rised with the devil,
The devil's got my man,
'Cause nobody but the devil
Look since [...] that way.

I see it, I see it,
The matter of your purple eyes.
I can't stand it no more
To be under your spell,
To accept your lies.

I rised with the devil,
The devil's got my man,
'Cause nobody but the devil
Look since [...] that way.

Na-na-na-na-na-na-na,

Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na.

Devil, devil, devil,
Please leave me alone,
Please leave me alone
And set me free.
You tried to win my heart,
But instead you broke it apart.

Devil, devil, devil,
Get out of my life
And stay away from me,
Let it be, let it be.
I don't want to go with you
To get burned in hell below.

Devil, devil, devil,
Devil, devil, devil,
Devil, devil, devil,
Devil, devil, devil,
Devil, devil, devil.

NASHVILLE REBEL (Robbie van Leeuwen)
---------------
They call me the Nashville rebel,
They say, `Leave that girl alone.'
Don't you give them advice,
So you turn to ice
And you might as well talk to stone.
But I've got things to do
And things to say in my own way.

I don't have time for your parties,
I love little kissing games.
I've got songs to write
In the steal of night,
I was born to write and sing.
And I've got things to do
And things to say in my own way.

Nashville rebel,
Nashville rebel,
Nashville rebel,
Nashville rebel.

They call me the Nashville rebel,
Oh boy, don't you waste your time?
For I given my heart to this old guitar
You deserve a better love than mine.
And I've got things to do
And things to say in my own way.

I'm the Nashville rebel,
I'm a loner and not like it fine.
A doctor has a wife and lives a normal life,
But I just don't have the time,
'Cause I've got things to do
And things to say in my own way.

Nashville rebel,
Nashville rebel,
Nashville rebel,
Nashville rebel,
Nashville rebel,
Nashville rebel.

BALL OF CONFUSION (Martin van Wijk)

So take my advice and don't you lose it
By not giving up before we tried,
Before we tried, before we tried.

I don't know about revolution,
I don't even know the reason why.
So let us start and give a contribution
By not giving up before we tried,

Sitting here waiting at the station,
Waiting for my train to come.

NEVER MARRY A RAILROAD MAN (Robbie van Leeuwen)
--------------------------
Have you been broken-hearted once or twice?
If it's yes, how did you feel at his crossed lines?
If it's no, you need this good advice.

Never marry a railroad man,
He loves you ev'ry now and then
His heart is at his new train.
No, no, no!
Don't fall in love with a railroad man.
If you do forget him if you can.
You're better off without him.
Ah!

Have you ever been restless in your bed
And so lonely that your eyes became wet?
Let me tell you then one thing.

Mm mm mm mm mm mm mm.
Mm mm mm mm mm mm mm.
Mm mm mm mm.
No, no, no!

Never marry a railroad man,
He loves you ev'ry now and then
His heart is at his new train.
No, no, no!
Don't fall in love with a railroad man.
If you do forget him if you can.
You're better off without him.
No, no, no!
No, no, no!
No, no, no!
No, no, no!

DREAM ON DREAMER (Robbie van Leeuwen)
----------------
Dream on dreamer
And tell me 'bout the secrets of your soul.
Your lips still there, a mysterious smile
And the reason why I wanna know.

Dream, dream,
Dream on dreamer.
Dream, dream,
Dream on dreamer.

Dream on dreamer
And tell me 'bout the feeling in your mind.
I'm so [...] just to know right now
What will happen and what has been.

Dream, dream,
Dream on dreamer.
Dream, dream,
Dream on dreamer.

Maybe there's loving in your heart
And you tell me that we will never part.
Maybe an ocean of love is waiting for me.

Dream on dreamer
And tell me 'bout the secrets of your soul.
Your lips still there, a mysterious smile
And the reason why I wanna know.

Dream, dream,
Dream on dreamer.
Dream, dream,
Dream on dreamer.
Dream, dream,
Dream on dreamer.

HELLO DARKNESS (Robbie van Leeuwen)
--------------
Between the grey and red shadows of twilight
The time is standing still.
It seems like a hundred of light years since the day you went away.
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah.

Hello, hello darkness,
Step inside,
Make the hours run thru' the night.
Hello, hello darkness,
Step inside,
Make the hours run thru' the night.

Knowing that you're far from my heart
It's so hard to live on.
But on the day that you'll return
I know you'll make my fire burn,
When this night is over you'll be mine.

Hello, hello darkness,
Step inside,
Make the hours run thru' the night.
Hello, hello darkness,
Step inside,
Make the hours run thru' the night.

Hello, hello darkness,
Step inside,
Make the hours run thru' the night.
Hello, hello darkness,
Step inside,
Make the hours run thru' the night.

BLOSSOM LADY (Robbie van Leeuwen)
------------
Once I had a boy-friend,
He was so tall and strong,
And he knew what I needed
When I was all alone.
Then he said to me,
`I'll care for you day and night,
I'll never forsake you.
Yes, I stay by your side.'

`Don't be afraid, girl,
You're the one, the one I love.
Don't be afraid, girl,
You're the one, the one I love.'
He said, `'Cause you're my blossom lady,
You're my blossom lady,
My blossom lady,
My blossom lady.'

`You're my blossom lady,
My blossom lady,
My blossom lady.'

But one year later
I was as lonely as I was before.
I saw my boy-friend
At some other girl's door.
And there was that hurt again,
As so on day we broke away,
Then I remembered
What he used to say.

`Don't be afraid, girl,
You're the one, the one I love.
Don't be afraid, girl,
You're the one, the one I love.'
He said, `'Cause you're my blossom lady,
You're my blossom lady,
My blossom lady,
My blossom lady.'

OUT OF SIGHT OUT OF MIND (Robbie van Leeuwen)
------------------------
Love comes very easy and slips easy away.
If you gotta go for a long, long time,
Your baby promised you'll be on his mind,
Don't be surprised if it turns out wrong.

Out of sight out of mind,
That's what happened a million times.
Out of sight out of mind.
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

Out of sight out of mind,
That's what happened a million times.
Out of sight out of mind.

Love has many faces and shows them all.
When you have to kiss your baby, goodbye,
There is a presentiment you can't deny,
Will he come back, yes or no?

Out of sight out of mind,
That's what happened a million times.
Out of sight out of mind.
That's what happened a million times.

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
Out of sight out of mind,
That's what happened a million times.
Out of sight out of mind.
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

Out of sight out of mind,
That's what happened...

EVE AND THE APPLE (Robbie van Leeuwen)
-----------------
In the garden of Eden
The black snake talked to Eve.
He said, `Taste a big apple,
It won't give you any grief.'
She said, `No, it ain't mine.'
`But a taste must be sweeter than wine.'

Well she took the apple and we lost paradise.
Well she took the apple and we lost paradise.

Mm, ev'ry boy and girl
Ask their mom or dad
About a place here on earth
Where little Eve once said,
`No, it ain't mine.'
`But a taste must be sweeter than wine.'

Well she took the apple and we lost paradise.
Well she took the apple and we lost paradise.

And the sun went down in that world of light.
And the sun went down in that world of light.
And the sun went down in that world of light!

In the garden of Eden
The black snake talked to Eve.
He said, `Taste a big apple,
It won't give you any grief.'
She said, `No, it ain't mine.'
`But a taste must be sweeter than wine.'

Well she took the apple and we lost paradise.
Well she took the apple and we lost paradise.

LET ME CARRY YOUR BAG (Robbie van Leeuwen)
---------------------
When your shadow is your only friend,
Your voice sneaks to nowhere
And you wonder when your troubles will end,
Then the sky is so grey in your own world.
You need somebody now.
Who wants to be your girl?

So let me, let me, let me carry your bag.
So let me, let me, let me carry your bag.
Let me, please let me carry your bag.

Hope it will be hope of tomorrow.
All your problems are too much to dare,
But like a friend I'll take care.

So let me, let me, let me carry your bag.
Let me, let me, let me carry your bag.
Let me, please let me carry your bag.

When the ring in the phone is so forgotten sound;
By the time the sun goes down
You ain't got nobody around,
Then the sky is so grey in your own world.
You need somebody now.
Who wants to be your girl?

So let me, let me, let me, let me carry your bag.
Let me, let me, let me, let me carry your bag.
Please let me, let me, let me, let me carry your bag.
Please let me, let me, let me, let me carry your bag.
Let me, let me, let me, let me carry your bag.
Please let me, let me, let me, let me carry your bag.
Let me, let me, let me, let me carry your bag.

OH LORD (Robbie van Leeuwen)
-------
Oh Lord, blow the cold wind out of my life.
I need love, love sweet love,
I need just a little bit now.

Hard legs and stormy eyes,
[...] lips to ease my pain,
Rough me through that lonesome night,
Don't let me hope in vain.

Make it alright, alright, alright,
Make it alright, alright, alright,
Make it alright, alright, alright,

Time goes too slow now, so I wish I could fly.
Roll engine roll.

Roll engine roll,
Roll me to my honey.
Roll engine roll,
Roll me to my honey.
Time goes too slow now, so I wish I could fly!

I count the reasons that I counted sittin' here,
Wond'ring how long it would take to lug there,
Where I first met her blue eyes
Which would mean a lot of 'bout how Cupid shoots,
Just shout!

Roll engine roll,
Roll me to my honey.
Time goes too slow now, so I wish I could fly.

I'm waitin' a long time in sight of your arms again,
Since I got gone in the place where I've been.

Roll me to my honey.
Time goes too slow now, so I wish I could fly.

PICKIN' TOMATOES (Robbie van Leeuwen)
----------------
I'm pickin' tomatoes,
And I do it for you.
I'm pickin' tomatoes
The whole day through.

I go into the field to make me some money
By having a good time with my honey,
And the sun looks over the hill.

I don't feel tired
When I see your smile,
Know I feel the pain
In my bones.

But I don't mind working so hard
For I know we'll never be apart,
And the sun looks over the hill.

I'm pickin' tomatoes,
And I do it for you.
I'm pickin' tomatoes
The whole day through.

When my bag is filled with fruit
I'd take a little rest in the wood,
And the sun is already down again,
And the sun is already down again,
And the sun is already down again.

WATERLOO (Robbie van Leeuwen)
--------
You were sitting in a black limousine,
Dressed like a model in a fancy magazine.

I pretended I was reading my book.

At once you said, `Now come on, let's dance.'
I said no and you missed your chance.
Now you, you, you found your Waterloo.
You, you, you found your Waterloo.

We met on the party of the embassy,
You came over and got a drink for me.
I accepted with a tender love,
For you that smile was more than enough.

At once you said, `Now come on, let's dance.'
I said no and you missed your chance.
Now you, you, you found your Waterloo.
You, you, you found your Waterloo.

WHEN I WAS A GIRL (Robbie van Leeuwen)

Cold and heat, wind and rain
And that won't be in vain,
'Cause I protect you now.

Good man spelled that tree

My momma kissed me
Here in the shade,
Here too
My brother played.
When I was a girl,
Here was my own world.

WHERE THE PICKNICK WAS (Robbie van Leeuwen)

When I see you walking there
Hand in hand with another girl,

Where the picknick was.

I see a smould'ring fire, green grass
Tide and brighter
And how it used to be
Between you and me.
I close my eyes and I'm
Where the picknick was.

When I see you smile to her,
Seems so unreal to me that once you were mine
And in my mind
I am where the picknick was.

Never to be
Again where the picknick was.
