Blue Eyes I don't think I've ever mentioned this before
But I couldn't possibly love you any more
Oh it's been ages
Let's not do that again!

I think you said that when you wrote to me
I'm not as certain as I ought to be
I lost the pages
It didn't seem to matter then

There's a lot of things I should have kept
But there was so much I could not accept

I watched some film round Alexandra's place
But I kept seeing your blue eyes in her face
I tried to call you
You must have left by then

And you know that stuff about you being here
I changed my mind, no, I just want you near
I don't have to own you
I just want you home again

There's a lot of things I used to say
But that all changes from today

Go-Go Dancer Here comes my go-go dancer
I called out but she wouldn't answer, oh, I don't know
She's changed ever since she met her
New friend but I won't forget her, can't let her go

I don't believe that's all she needs now
She used to have big dreams but somehow
They seem to mean less everyday
She wants to throw it all away

I love to watch you when you dance
Could you still feel that way?
Should we start a new romance?

I watched them walking home together
Even on their own she never talks much at all
I don't know what she sees in you, boy
I think your just another new toy, walk then you crawl

I love to watch you when you dance
Could you still feel that way?
Should we start a new romance?

Here comes my go-go dancer
I called out but she wouldn't answer, oh, I don't know
She's changed ever since she met her
New friend, but I won't forget her, can't let her go

I don't believe that's all she needs now
She used to have big dreams but somehow
They seem to mean less everyday
She wants to throw it all away

I love to watch you when you dance

Three Yes I want to, I'm down here on my knees
Well why can't you just think about it please?

I'm yours
She's mine
Two's company
But three have a better time
We've got a mountain to climb

You're so right, we get what we deserve
And that's just why, you've got to have some nerve

I'm yours
She's mine
Two's company
But three have a better time
No, it isn't a crime!

There's no hurry, we can make this slow
And don't worry, no one has to know

I'm yours
She's mine
Two's company
But three have a better time
We've got a mountain to climb
We're going to have a good time
And it isn't a crime

Silver Shorts She's not talking to me now
Not since we had our row
But I don't care what lies ahead
I just can't get out of your bed

I know what I said
I just changed my mind
I can't leave you behind
Just keep on doing what you were
Before I mentioned her

Wear your silver shorts today
And I won't go away
The thoughts you put inside my head
Yes, I'll stay here instead

I know what I said
I just changed my mind
I can't leave you behind
Just keep on doing what you were
Before I mentioned her

Come Play With Me Take a look at this note
I can't throw it away
No please read it
It's something she wrote
Just to ruin my day
Now do you understand?!

Are you sure you want to hear?
Well, she stormed out of the flat
No I don't care
It's not her I miss
She was always doing that
Oh she can stay there

But you should've seen the smile
When she said "Should I go...
Should I walk out?"
We sat for a while
I didn't say yes or no
But we'd just run out of time

No I'm sure that she meant
Every word that she said
But there are no more
Excuses to invent
Again and again
Just a closed door

And we couldn't go on
And no one's to blame
These things happen
I didn't need anyone
Until the day that you came
And I looked in your eyes

When I saw you
When I saw you
When I saw you
When I saw you

It's over, it's over, it's over, yes it's over
Now come play with me
It's over, it's over, it's over, yes it's over
Now come play with me
It's over, it's over, it's over, yes it's over
Now come play with me
It's over, it's over, it's over, yes it's over
Now come play with me

California Let's go to California now
We've got to cross this great big world somehow
Don't say "no"
We must go

You're scared you'll make some big mistake, but I forgive you
This is a risk you have to take, and I'll be with you
And I'll hold you
I told you

Leave all your cares and fears behind
There should be one thing on your mind
Don't say "no"
We must go

Don't put any clothes back on
That's just how
I'll remember this day when we've gone
But right now...

That's just the weirdest thing I've ever heard
Oh but I'm ready, just say the word
And I'll hold you
I told you

Anything you want to do
I just know
That I'll want to do it too
But we must go

Anything you want to do
I just know
That I'll want to do it too
But we must go

Cattle And Cane (The Go-Betweens) I recall a schoolboy coming home
Through fields of cane
To a house of tin and timber
And in the sky
A rain of falling cinders
From time to time
The waste memory-wastes
I recall a boy in bigger pants
Like everyone
Just waiting for a chance
His father's watch
He left it in the showers
From time to time
The waste memory-wastes
I recall a bigger brighter world
A world of books
And silent times in thought
And then the railroad
The railroad takes him home
Through fields of cattle
Through fields of cane
From time to time
The waste memory-wastes
The waste memory-wastes
Further, longer, higher, older

Don't Cry No Tears (Neil Young) Don't cry no tears around me.
Don't cry no tears around me.
'Cause when all the water's gone,
the feeling lingers on.
Old true love isn't too hard to see.
Don't cry no tears around me.
I wonder who's with her tonight.
And I wonder who's holding her tight.
There's nothing I can say to make him go away.
Old true love isn't too hard to see.
Don't cry no tears around me.
There's nothing I can say to make him go away.
Old true love isn't too hard to see.
Don't cry no tears around me.
Just don't cry no tears around me.

Think That It Might (Altered Images)

Falling (Julee Cruise) Don't let yourself be hurt this time
Don't let yourself be hurt this time
Then I saw your face
Then I saw your smile
The sky is still blue
The clouds come and go
Yet something is different
Are we falling in love?
Don't let yourself be hurt this time
Don't let yourself be hurt this time
Then your kiss so soft
Then your touch so warm
The stars still shine bright
The mountains still high
Yet something is different
Are we falling in love?

Pleasant Valley Sunday (The Monkees)The local rock group down the street
Is trying hard to learn their song
Seranade the weekend squire, who just came out to mow his lawn
Another Pleasant Valley Sunday
Charcoal burning everywhere
Rows of houses that are all the same
And no one seems to care
See Mrs. Gray she's proud today because her roses are in bloom
Mr. Green he's so serene, He's got a t.v. in every room
Another Pleasant Valley Sunday
Here in status symbol land
Mothers complain about how hard life is
And the kids just don't understand
Creature comfort goals
They only numb my soul and make it hard for me to see
My thoughts all seem to stray, to places far away
I need a change of scenery
Ta Ta Ta...
Another Pleasant Valley Sunday
Charcoal burning everywhere
Another Pleasant Valley Sunday
Here in status symbol land
Another Pleasant Valley Sunday...
[repeat, fade, end song as "psycho jello"]

Let's Make Some Plans (Close Lobsters)"Let's make some plans cuz they can go wrong
Getting there may be times three maybe not
To loosen your lips cuz you're talking rubbish
To loosen your hole mistaken tenfold
(Ah, wa-oh, wa-oh, wa-oh)(??A while, while, while??) (??you're wild, wild, wild??)
Tens million good reasons against
The mountain, the light bulb and the lake
To loosen your lips cuz you're talking rubbish
To loosen your hole mistaken tenfold
(Ah, wa-oh, wa-oh, wa-oh)(??A while, while, while??) (??you're wild, wild, wild??)
woooh!!!
Let's make some plans, let's makes some plans, let's make some plans
let's make some plans, Ah, wa-oh, wa-oh, wa-oh
Let's make some plans, let's makes some plans, let's make some plans
let's make some plans, Ah, wa-oh, wa-oh, wa-oh
Let's make some plans, let's makes some plans, let's make some plans
let's make some plans, Ah, wa-oh, wa-oh, wa-oh"
