Kennedy Lost your love of life? Too much apple pie
Have you lost your love of life? Too much apple pie
And now Harry's walked away with Johnny's wife
You've got to pick some people up
You've got to let some people go
But if Lee's name does come up
Oh well I really want to know
Because everybody loves a T.V. show

Lost your love of life? Too much apple pie
Have you lost your love of life? Too much apple pie
And now Harry's walked away with Johnny's wife
You've got to pick some people up
You've got to let some people go
But if Lee's name does come up
Oh well I really want to know
Because everybody loves a T.V. show

Lost your love of life? Too much apple pie
Have you lost your love of life? Too much apple pie
And now Harry's walked away with Johnny's wife

Unfaithful And what's your game?
Arm in arm by the garage wall
Oh, so that's his name?
Oh yes, I knew I'd seen his face before
You know I haven't worn a shirt like that since, oh, 1974

I might have known
The light was still on when I passed your flat
So you weren't alone?
Oh what do you mean "what am I getting at?" !
I just don't believe that anyone can work as much as that

And are you being unfaithful to me?
Are you being unfaithful?
Are you being unfaithful to me?
Are you being unfaithful?

I'm so ashamed
I had my ear pressed up to your bedroom door
Oh, you never change
If you want anything you just take it all
I suppose you'd like me to go back home and wait
For the usual telephone call

And are you being unfaithful to me?
Are you being unfaithful?
Are you being unfaithful to me?
Are you being unfaithful?

One Day This Will All Be Yours And they were left all alone
On that fateful day the budgie had a stroke
1940's bliss...how could it come to this?

Forgotten things they once knew
And now there's really only one thing left to do
But I think that I'm more scared
Because this country doesn't care

And one day this will all be yours
And one day this will all be yours
And one day this will all be yours

But there were bluer skies
When you were just a twinkle in our eyes
Oh but you don't have to stay
But thank you anyway

It's Not Unusual (Tom Jones) It's not unusual to be loved by anyone
it's not unusual to have fun with anyone
but when i see you hanging around with anyone
it's not unusual
to see my cry
oh i wanna die
it's not unusual to go out at anytime
but when i see you out and about
it's such a crime
if you should ever wanna be loved by anyone
it's not unusual
it happens everyday
no matter what you say
you know it happens all the time
love will never do
what you want it to
why can't this crazy love be mine
it's not unusual to be mad with anyone
it's not unusual to be sad with anyone
but if i ever found that you'd change at anytime
it's not unusual to find out i'm in love with you
