Dalliance You've told him lies now for so long
Yet still he's ready to forgive
He's got you back and that's all he wants
It's a lot more than I'm left with

You don't care now that you're gone
But you know how much I miss you?
It's not fair after all you've done
That I'm so...
I still want to kiss you

And throwing presents straight away
Because you could never take them home
Always scared what he might say
But always leaving me alone

You don't care now that you're gone
But you know how much I miss you?
It's not fair after all you've done
That I'm so...
I still want to kiss you

You told him what he wants to hear
And so you got another chance
But I was yours for seven years
Is that what you call a dalliance?!

You don't care now that you're gone
But you know how much I miss you?
It's not fair after all you've done
That I'm so...
I still want to kiss you

She's My Best Friend (The Velvet Underground) She's my best friend
Certainly not the average girl
She's my best friend
Understands me when I'm falling down down down
Oh it hurts to be that way
Oh it hurts to know you're that kind of fellow
Here's to Newspaper Joe, dropped his teeth on the floor
Caught his hand in the door
Guess that's the way the news goes
If you want to see me
I'm sorry but I'm not around
If you to feel me
Turn around, I'm by the window where the light is

She's my best friend
Better than a dog or cat
She's my best friend
Understands me when I'm falling down
Oh it hurts to be that way
Oh it hurts to know you're that kind of fellow
Here's to Mulberry Jane
She made jam when she came
Somebody cut off her feet
Now jelly rolls in the street
If you want to see me
I'm sorry but I'm not around
If you want to feel me
Turn around, I'm by the window where the light is

She's my best friend
Certainly not the average girl
She's my best friend
Understands me when I'm falling
Falling down
Falling down
Falling down
Falling down

Niagara Oh no my life had not begun
Until your call, was it only yesterday?
I can't believe the things we've done
Since then, and God, I love the way you taste

But does it have to end right now?
Well can't you stay for another day?
Just say you're ill and come back out
I'll meet you here, then we'll disappear

I've got this feeling, oh it's like nothing I know
You sent me reeling, and I don't want you to go

Don't say a word it's almost light
I'll always remember how you look right now
We must have talked and talked all night
All I heard was Niagara falling down

I've got this feeling, oh it's like nothing I know
You sent me reeling, and I don't want you to go
