Tainted Love ~ Soft Cell

Sometimes I feel I've got to
Run away I've got to
Get away
From the pain that you drive into the heart of me
The love we share
Seems to go nowhere
And I've lost my light
For I toss and turn I can't sleep at night

Once I ran to you (I ran)
Now I'll run from you
This tainted love you've given
I give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all
Oh...tainted love
Tainted love

Now I know I've got to
Run away I've got to
Get away
You don't really want any more from me
To make things right
You need someone to hold you tight
And you think love is to pray
But I'm sorry I don't pray that way

Once I ran to you (I ran)
Now I'll run from you
This tainted love you've given
I give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all
Oh...tainted love
Tainted love

Don't touch me please
I cannot stand the way you tease
I love you though you hurt me so
Now I'm going to pack my things and go
Tainted love, tainted love
Tainted love, tainted love
Touch me baby, tainted love
Touch me baby, tainted love
Tainted love
Tainted love
Tainted love

Mambo No. 5 ~ Lou Bega

Ladies and Gentlemen, this is Mambo number five.

One, two, three, four, five, everybody in the car so come on let's ride.....
To the liquor store around the corner.
The boys say they want some gin and juice but I really don't wanna.
Beer bust like I had last week.
I must stay deep 'cause talk is cheap.
I like Angela, Pamela, Sandra and Rita.
And as I continue, you know they're getting sweeter.
So what can I do? I really beg you my Lord.
To me flirting is just like a sport.
Anything fly, it's all good let me dump it.
Please set it in the trumpet.

A little bit of Monica in my life,
A little bit of Erica by my side.
A little bit of Rita's all I need,
A little bit of Tina's all I see.
A little bit of Sandra in the sun,
A little bit of Mary all night long.
A little bit of Jessica here I am,
A little bit of you makes me your man!!!!!!!!
Mambo number five.

Jump up and down and move it all around.
Shake your head to the sound, put your hands on the ground.
Take one step left and one step right.
One to the front and one to the side.
Clap your hands once and clap your hands twice
And if it look like this then you're doing it right.

A little bit of Monica in my life,
A little bit of Erica by my side.
A little bit of Rita's all I need,
A little bit of Tina's all I see.
A little bit of Sandra in the sun,
A little bit of Mary all night long.
A little bit of Jessica here I am,
A little bit of you makes me your man!!!!!!!!

Trumpet, the trumpet.
Mambo number five, ha, ha, ha.

A little bit of Monica in my life,
A little bit of Erica by my side.
A little bit of Rita's all I need,
A little bit of Tina's all I see.

Venus ~ Shocking Blue

A goddess on a mountain top,
was burning like a silver flame.
The summit of beauty
she was,
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 you desire.
Well, I'm your Venus, I'm your fire at you desire.

Her weapon were her crystal eyes,
making every man a man.
Black as a dark night she was,
got what no one else had.

I'll Be Gone ~ Spectrum

Someday I"ll have money, money is---n't easy to come by
By the time its come by Ill be gone
Ill sing my song and Ill be gone

Live the life of lux-u-ry

Someday Ill have lovin, lovin etc till Ill be gone.

Movin around comes naturally movin around and feelin free, that's for me

Someday Ill have money, money isn't easy to come by,
lovin isn't easy to come by, neither of them is easy to come by

Achy Breaky Heart ~ Billy Ray Cyrus

You can tell the world you never was my girl
You can burn my clothes when I'm gone
Or you can tell your friends just what a fool I've been
And laugh and joke about me on the phone

You can tell my arms to go back to the farm
You can tell my feet to hit the floor
Or you can tell my lips to tell my fingertips
They won't be reaching out for you no more

But don't tell my heart, my achy breaky heart
I just don't think he'd understand
And if you tell my heart, my achy breaky heart
He might blow up and kill this man
Ooo

You can tell your ma I moved to Arkansas
Or you can tell your dog to bite my leg
Or tell your brother Cliff who's fist can tell my lips
He never really liked me anyway

Oh tell your Aunt Louise, tell anything you please
Myself already knows that I'm okay
Oh you can tell my eyes to watch out for my mind
It might be walking out on me today

But don't tell my heart, my achy breaky heart
I just don't think he'd understand
And if you tell my heart, my achy breaky heart
He might blow up and kill this man
Ooo

But don't tell my heart, my achy breaky heart
I just don't think he'd understand
And if you tell my heart, my achy breaky heart
He might blow up and kill this man
Ooo

Don't tell my heart, my achy breaky heart
He might blow up and kill this man
Ooo

Don't tell my heart, my achy breaky heart
He might blow up and kill this man
Ooo

Counting The Beat ~ The Swingers

I look at the sunrise

I look at it earn

I look into your eyes

Don't know where to turn

I'm gonna drift into that void

I'm flying through space

I'm an asteroid

I'm dancing that place when you're paranoid

I'm thinking about you and nothing else

Think about you, you think about me

Think about you, counting the beat

Thinking about you, thinking about me

Thinking about just you and me

la-dah-da-de, there ain't no place I'd rather be

la-da-de-da, la-da-de-da, la-da-de-da...



I'm bleeding to death

On the cloudiest day

Three-four-five beat

A-waltzing away

I'm counting the beat, two-three-four-five

I'm feeling the heat, glad to be alive

I'm counting the beat, six-seven-eight-nine

I'm wishing that you, that you were mine

Think about you, you think about me

Think about you, counting the beat

Thinking about you, thinking about me

Thinking about you, thinking about me

thinking about you ?

think about, just you and me

la-dah-da-de, there ain't no place I'd rather be

la-da-de-da, la-da-de-da, la-da-de-da...

Slice of Heaven ~ Dave Dobbyn & The Herbs

Hey, I got a lot of faith in you,
I'll stick with you kid, that's the bottom line!
Yeah, you have a lot of fun don't you?
And living with you is a ball of a time.

Hey beauty when the mood gets you down,
Your bottom lip's near dragging on the ground.
That's when I gotta play the clown for you,
Black humour made you kick your blues...

Howdy Angel! Where did you hide your wings?

HER LOVE SHINES OVER MY HORIZON,
SHE'S A...SLICE OF HEAVEN, YEAH!
WARM MOONLIGHT OVER MY HORIZON,

And heaven has to be with you all the time.

Hey beauty when the mood gets you down,
Your bottom lip's near dragging on the ground.
That's when I gotta play the clown for you,
Black humour made me kick my blues...

HER LOVE SHINES OVER MY HORIZON,
SHE'S A...SLICE OF HEAVEN, YEAH!
WARM MOONLIGHT OVER MY HORIZON,

Rockin' Robin ~ Bobby Day

Tweedily deedily dee, Tweedily deedily dee,
Tweedily deedily dee, Tweedily deedily dee,
Tweedily deedily dee, Tweedily deedily dee,
Tweedily deedily dee, Tweedily deedily dee,
Tweet, tweet, tweet tweet

He rocks in the treetops all day long,
Hoppin' and a-boppin' and a-singin' his song.
All the little birds on J-Bird Street,
Love to hear the robin go tweet, tweet, tweet.

CHORUS:
Rockin' robin (tweet, tweet, tweet);
Rock, rock, rockin' robin (tweet, tweedle-dee);
Go rockin' robin, we're really gonna rock tonight.
Every little swallow, every chickadee,
Every little bird in the tall oak tree,
The wise old owl, the big black crow,
Flappin' their wings singin' go bird, go.

CHORUS:.

The pretty little raven at the bird man stand
Taught him how to do the bop and it was grand,
He started goin' steady and "bless my soul,"
He out-bopped the buzzard and the oriole.

CHORUS

He rocks in the treetops all day long,
Hoppin' and a-boppin' and a-singin' his song.
All the little birds on J-Bird Street,
Love to hear the robin go tweet, tweet, tweet.

CHORUS

REPEAT LAST TWO VERSES

CHORUS

Go rockin' robin, we're really gonna rock tonight.

Pass The Dutchie ~ Musical Youth

 This generation
Rules the nation
With vision

Music happen to be the food of love
Sounds to really make you rub and scrub

I say: Pass the dutchie 'pon the left hand side
Pass the dutchie 'pon the left hand side
It a gonna burn
Give me the music make me jump and prance
It a go done
Give me the music make me rock in the dance

It was a cool and lovely, breezy afternoon
(How does it feel when you've got no food?)
You could feel it 'cause it was the month of June
(How does it feel when you've got no food?)
So I left my gate and went out for a walk
(How does it feel when you've got no food?)
As I pass the dreadlocks' camp I heard them say
(how does it feel when you've got no food?)

Pass the dutchie 'pon the left hand side
Pass the dutchie 'pon the left hand side
It a gonna burn
Give me the music make me jump and prance
It a go done
Give me the music make me rock in the dance

So I stopped to find out what was going on
(How does it feel when you've got no food?)
'Cause the spirit of Jah, you know he leads you on
(How does it feel when you've got no food?)
There was a ring of dreads and a session was there in swing
(How does it feel when you've got no food?)
You could feel the chill as I seen and heard them say
(How does it feel when you've got no food?)

Pass the dutchie 'pon the left hand side
Pass the dutchie 'pon the left hand side
It a gonna burn
Give me the music make me jump and prance
It a go done
Give me the music make me rock in the dance

'Cause me say listen to the drummer
Me say listen to the bass
Give me little music
Make me wind up me waist
Me say listen to the drummer
Me say listen to the bass
Give me little music
Make me wind up me waist

I say: Pass the dutchie 'pon the left hand side
Pass the dutchie 'pon the left hand side
It a gonna burn
Give me the music make me jump and prance
It a go done
Give me the music make me rock in the dance

You play it on the radio
A so me say
We a go heard it on the stereo
A so me say
Now you go play it on the disco
A so me say
We a go hear it on the stereo

Pass the dutchie 'pon the left hand side
Pass the dutchie 'pon the left hand side
It a gonna burn
Give me the music make me jump and prance
It a go done
Give me the music make me rock in the dance

I say East, say West, say North and South
(On the left hand side)
This is gonna really make us jump and shout
(On the left hand side)

Don't Worry Be Happy ~ Bobby McFerrin

Here's a little song I wrote
You might want to sing it note-for-note
Don't worry, be happy
In every life we have some trouble
But when you worry, you make it double
Don't worry, be happy Don't worry, be happy now

Ooo-oo-hoo-hoo-oo hoo-hoo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry
Woo-oo-woo-oo-woo-oo-ooo Be happy
Woo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry, be happy

Ooo-oo-hoo-hoo-oo hoo-hoo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry
Woo-oo-woo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Be happy
Woo-oo-woo-oo-ooo Don't worry, be happy

Ain't got no place to lay your head
Somebody came and took your bed
Don't worry, be happy
The landlord say your rent is late
He may have to litigate
Don't worry, (ha-ha ha-ha ha-ha) be happy (look at me, I'm happy)

Ooo-oo-hoo-hoo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry
Oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Be happy
Oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo (Here, I'll give you my phone number. When you're
worried, call me. I'll make you happy.)
Ooo-oo-hoo-hoo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry
Woo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo Be happy
Woo-oo-oo-oo-ooo

Ain't got no cash, ain't got no style
Ain't got no gal to make you smile
But don't worry, be happy
'Cause when you're worried, your face will frown
And that will bring everybody down
So don't worry, be happy Don't worry, be happy now

Ooo-oo-hoo-oo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry
Oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Be happy
Woo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry, be happy

Ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry
Woo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo Be happy
Woo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry, be happy

Now there, is this song I wrote
I hope you learned it note-for-note, like good little children
Don't worry, be happy
A-listen to a-what I say
In your life, expect some trouble
When you worry you make it double
Don't worry, be happy, be happy now

Ooo-oo-hoo-hoo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry
Oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Be happy
Oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry, be happy

Ooo-oo-hoo-oo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry
Woo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Be happy
Woo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry, be happy

Ooo-oo-hoo-oo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry, don't worry
Oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't do it, be happy
Oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Put a smile on your face
Don't bring everybody down like
this
Ooo-oo-hoo-hoo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry
Ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo It will soon pass, whatever it
is
Ooo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry, be happy

(fading...)
Ooo-oo-hoo-hoo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo I'm not worried
Ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo I'm happy
Ooo-oo-oo-oo-ooo

99 Luftballoons ~ Nena

--- Deutsch ---

Hast Du etwas Zeit fuer mich
Dann singe ich ein Lied fuer Dich
Von 99 Luftballons
Auf ihrem Weg zum Horizont
Denkst Du vielleicht grad' an mich
Dann singe ich ein Lied fuer Dich
Von 99 Luftballons
Und dass sowas von sowas kommt

99 Luftballons
Auf ihrem Weg zum Horizont
Hielt man fuer UFOs aus dem All
Darum schickte ein General
'ne Fliegerstaffel hinterher
Alarm zu geben, wenn's so waer
Dabei war'n da am Horizont
Nur 99 Luftballons

99 Duesenflieger
Jeder war ein grosser Krieger
Hielten sich fuer Captain Kirk
Das gab ein grosses Feuerwerk
Die Nachbarn haben nichts gerafft
Und fuehlten sich gleich angemacht
Dabei schoss man am Horizont
Auf 99 Luftballons

99 Kriegsminister
Streichholz und Benzinkanister
Hielten sich fuer schlaue Leute
Witterten schon fette Beute
Riefen: Krieg und wollten Macht
Mann, wer haette das gedacht
Dass es einmal soweit kommt
Wegen 99 Luftballons

99 Jahre Krieg
Liessen keinen Platz fuer Sieger
Kriegsminister gibt's nicht mehr
Und auch keine Duesenflieger
Heute zieh ich meine Runden
Seh' die Welt in Truemmern liegen
Hab' 'nen Luftballon gefunden
Denk' an Dich und lass' ihn fliegen

--- English ---
You and I in a little toy shop
buy a bag of balloons
with the money we've got
Set them free at the break of dawn
'Til one by one, they were gone
Back at base, bugs in the software
Flash the message,
"Something's out there"
Floating in the summer sky
99 red balloons go by.

99 red balloons
floating in the summer sky
Panic bells, it's red alert
There's something here
from somewhere else
The war machine springs to life
Opens up one eager eye
Focusing it on the sky
Where 99 red balloons go by.

99 Decision Street,
99 ministers meet
To worry, worry, super-scurry
Call the troops out in a hurry
This is what we've waited for
This is it boys, this is war
The president is on the line
As 99 red balloons go by.

99 Knights of the air
ride super-high-tech jet fighters
Everyone's a Silverhero
Everyone's a Captain Kirk
With orders to identify
To clarify and classify
Scramble in the summer sky
As 99 red balloons go by.

As 99 red balloons go by.

99 dreams I have had
In every one a red balloon
It's all over and I'm standin' pretty
In this dust that was a city
If I could find a souvenier
Just to prove the world was here...
And here is a red balloon
I think of you and let it go.
Oh, I love the night life,
I got to boogie on the disco 'round, oh yea.
Oh, I love the night life,
I got to boogie on the disco 'round, oh yea.
I love the night life,
I got to boogie on the disco 'round, oh yea.

Come on Eileen ~ Dexy's Midnight Runners

Come on Eileen
Come on Eileen

Poor old Johnny Ray
Sounded sad upon the radio,
He moved a million hearts in mono
Our mothers cried,
Sang along, who'd blame them?

You've grown (you're grown up)
so grown (so grown up)
Now I must say more than ever (come on Eileen)
Toora Loora Toora Loo-Rye Aye
And we can sing just like our fathers

Come on Eileen, oh I swear (well he means)
At this moment, you mean everything.
You in that dress, my thoughts, I confess
Verge on dirty
Ah come on Eileen

Come on Eileen

These people round here, wear beaten
down eyes sunk in
smoke, dried faces, so
resigned to what their fate is

But not us, (no never) no not us (no never)
We are far too young and clever (remember)
Go Toora Loora Toora Loo-Rye-Aye
Eileen, I'll hum this tune forever

Come on Eileen. Oh I swear (well he means)
Ah come on let's, take off everything
That pretty red dress, Eileen (tell him yes)
Ah come on let's, ah come on Eileen
That pretty red dress, Eileen (tell him yes)
Ah come on let's, ah come on Eileen, please


(Come on, Eileen taloo-rye-aye
Come on, Eileen taloo-rye-aye)
Now you are grown, now you have shown
Oh, Eileen

Said come on Eileen, these things they are real
And I know how you feel
Now I must say more than ever
Things 'round here will change. I said
Too-ra-loo-ra too-ra-loo-rye-aye

Come on Eileen, Oh I swear (well he means)
At this moment, you mean everything
You in that dress, my thoughts (I confess)
Verge on dirty
Ah come on Eileen

Come on Eileen, oh I swear (well he means)
At this moment, you mean everything
(in that dress), whoa, my thoughts I confess
Well, they're dirty
Come on Eileen

Turning Japanese ~ The Vapors

I got your picture
Of me and you
You wrote "I love you"
I wrote "me too"
I sit there staring and there's nothing else to do

Oh, it's in colour
Your hair is brown
Your eyes are hazel
And soft as clouds
I often kiss you when there's no one else around

I got your picture, I got your picture
I'd like a million of you all 'round my cell
I want a doctor to take your picture
So I can look at you from inside as well
You got me turning up, I'm turning down, I'm turning in, I'm turning 'round

I'm turning Japanese, I think I'm turning Japanese, I really think so
Turning Japanese, I think I'm turning Japanese, I really think so
I'm turning Japanese, I think I'm turning Japanese, I really think so
Turning Japanese I think I'm turning Japanese I really think so

I got your picture, I got your picture
I'd like a million of you all 'round my cell
I want a doctor to take your picture
So I can look at you from inside as well
You've got me turning up, I'm turning down, I'm turning in, I'm turning 'round

I'm turning Japanese, I think I'm turning Japanese, I really think so
Turning Japanese, I think I'm turning Japanese, I really think so
I'm turning Japanese, I think I'm turning Japanese, I really think so
Turning Japanese I think I'm turning Japanese I really think so

No sex, no drugs, no wine, no women
No fun, no sin, no you, no wonder it's dark
Everyone around me is a total stranger
Everyone avoids me like a psyched lone ranger
Everyone

That's why I'm turning Japanese, I think I'm turning Japanese, I really think so
Turning Japanese, I think I'm turning Japanese, I really think so
Turning Japanese, I think I'm turning Japanese, I really think so
Turning Japanese, I think I'm turning Japanese, I really think so

Turning Japanese, I think I'm turning Japanese, I really think so
Turning Japanese, I think I'm turning Japanese, I really think so
Turning Japanese, I think I'm turning Japanese, I really think so (think so, think so, think so)
Turning Japanese, I think I'm turning Japanese, I really think so

Video Killed The Radio Star ~ The Buggles

I heard you on the wireless back in Fifty Two.
Lying awake intent and tuning in on you.
If I was young it didn't stop you coming through.
Oh-a oh
They took the credit for your second symphony.
Rewritten by machine and new technology,
and now I understand the problems you can see.

Oh-a oh
I met your children
Oh-a oh
What did you tell them?
Video killed the radio star.
Video killed the radio star.

Pictures came and broke your heart.
Oh-a-a-a oh
And now we meet in an abandoned studio.
We hear the playback and it seems so long ago.
And you remember the jingles used to go...

Oh-a-oh
You were the first one
Oh-a-oh
You were the last one.
Video killed the radio star.
Video killed the radio star.

In my mind and in my car,
We can't rewind we've gone too far
Oh-a-a-a oh
Oh-a-a-a oh
Video killed the radio star.
Video killed the radio star.

In my mind and in my car,
We can't rewind we've gone too far,
Pictures came and broke your heart,
Put the blame on VCR
You are a radio star
You are a radio star
Video killed the radio star.(x10 fade out)
(after 4x) You are the radio star (x5 fade out)

Oh-a oh (x6 fade out)

Born To Be Alive ~ Patrick Hernandez
We were born to be alive.
We were born to be alive.

Born, born to be alive
(Born to be alive).
Yes we were born,
Born,
Born
(Born to be alive).

People ask me why
I never find a place to stop
And settle down,
Down,
Down.
But I never wanted all those things
People need to justify
Their lives,
Lives,
Lives,

Yes we were born, born,
Born to be alive
(Born to be alive).
Yes we were born,
Born,
Born
(Born to be alive).

It's good to be alive,
To be alive,
To be alive.
It's good to be alive,
To be alive,
To be alive.

IT'S GOOD TO BE ALIVE!

Time was on my side
When I was running down the street
It was no bind,
Bind,
Bind.
A suitcase and an old guitar
It's all I need to occupy
A mind like mine

Yes we were born, born,
Born to be alive
(Born to be alive).
Yes we were born,
Born,
Born
(Born to be alive).

Yes we were born, born,
Born to be alive
(Born to be alive).
Yes we were born,
Born,
Born
(Born to be alive).

Yes we were born, born,
Born to be alive
(Born to be alive).
Yes we were born,
Born,
Born
(Born to be alive).

Yes we were born, born,
Born to be alive
(Born to be alive).
Yes we were born,
Born,
Born
(Born to be alive).

Born born to be alive

My Sharona ~ The Knack

Ooh my little pretty one, my pretty one
When you gonna give me some time, Sharona?
Ooh you make my motor run, my motor run
Gun it comin' off of the line, Sharona
Never gonna stop, give it up, such a dirty mind
I always get it up from the touch of the younger kind
My-my-my-yi-yi-woo
Ma-ma-ma-my Sharona

Come a little closer, will ya huh
Close enough to look in my eyes, Sharona
Keeping it a mystery gets to me
Running down the length of my thigh, Sharona
Never gonna stop, give it up, such a dirty mind
I always get it up from the touch of the younger kind
My-my-my-yi-yi-woo
Ma-ma-ma-my Sharona
Ma-ma-ma-my Sharona

When you gonna give to me, give to me
Is it just a matter of time Sharona?
Is it de-de-destiny, destiny?
Or is it just a game in my mind, Sharona?
Never gonna stop, give it up, such a dirty mind
I always get it up from the touch of the younger kind
My-my-my-yi-yi-woo
Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma
My-my-my-yi-yi-woo
Ma-ma-ma-my Sharona
Ma-ma-ma-my Sharona
Ma-ma-ma-my Sharona
Ma-ma-ma-my Sharona

Ooooooooooo-oh, my Sharona
Ooooooooooo-oh, my Sharona
Ooooooooooo-oh, my Sharona
