Sleeve

2, 3, Go So the right answer is
To dispense with these formalities
We can't possibly fail
Because we can lick thirty tigers today
If you're inclined

I know you won't refuse
Because you agree there is nothing to lose
We're two of a kind
Don't look behind

You're still doubtful but I've
Seen adventures like this one arrive
So many times
You've just got to learn how
Because the future is starting right now
Oh, I just know
You are ready to go

Make a movie today
Buy a red Chevrolet
Let's go swim the Zambezi
Let's do it just because it's easy

Sometimes if we just wait
For the right moment it comes far too late

Oh, I just know
You are ready to go

Ride white horses today
Buy a red Chevrolet
Let's go swim the Zambezi
Let's do it just because it's easy

Let's fly close to the sun
Let's do it just because it's fun
Let's go swim the Zambezi
Let's do it just because it's easy

Make a movie today
Buy a red Chevrolet
Let's go swim the Zambezi
Let's do it just because it's easy

Real Thing This is the real thing, there's no doubt
This is what love should be about
This is a feeling I never want to be without

This is the real thing, there's no doubt
This is what love should be about
This is a feeling I never want to be without

You're smart whereas I'm just dumb
You smile and then I succumb
I love watching you when you come

But how can there be so much bliss
In one spur of the moment kiss?
I guess when it's as good as this

This is the real thing, there's no doubt
This is what love should be about
This is a feeling I never want to be without

This is the real thing, there's no doubt
This is what love should be about
This is a feeling I never want to be without

And the moment that I began
To fly higher than Superman
Was when you whispered: "Yes, you can"

You knew just when to undress
You understand, whereas I just guess
But this is something we both possess

This is the real thing, there's no doubt
This is what love should be about
This is a feeling I never want to be without

This is the real thing, there's no doubt
This is what love should be about
This is a feeling I never want to be without

Jet Girl I could call you now
But I know you won't answer
Because someone told me how it always ends

I guess that you could say
I took a great big chance and
Now you've flown away, are we still friends?

You took off like a jet girl
Somehow I knew that it would happen all along
Oh but I can bet girl
Wherever you are, you wont be landing there for long
Unless I'm wrong

I know I've been blind
You only hung around to
See what you could find to turn you on

I could have ignored
The aura that surrounds you
But I'd have been so bored and you'd still be gone

You took off like a jet girl
Somehow I knew that it would happen all along
Oh but I can bet girl
Wherever you are, you wont be landing there for long
Unless I'm wrong

You took off like a jet girl
Somehow I knew that it would happen all along
Oh but I can bet girl
Wherever you are, you wont be landing there for long
Unless I'm wrong

Up She said she'd wait for both of us in bed
But if you leave,she'll just think we've
Messed about and left her out
Hold tight,I'm not your only fan tonight
It's true,she fancies you
Well,why do you think she's made us drink 'til now?

I don't want to scare you
You're mine right now
But I'll have to share you

Well didn't you see that little smile as she touched your knee?
Oh yes,and you didn't guess?
It started then but you'll know when
She strikes because she does just what she likes
And she'll win,because she won't give in
It's just begun but she's up there wondering how

She will ensnare you
You're mine right now
But I'll have to share you
