Don't Change My Luck

(Chapman Chinn)

Well you may not have his points of view
But as a matter of fact I think you're downright rude
To take some people apart the way you do

So here we are sitting in this retaurant
And I'm so tired of hearing about what you want
Or maybe you've forgotten just who you're talking to

Well for three long years I was waiting to hear
Just a few words from you that were vaguely sincere
It certainly is going to be easy forgetting about you

So if you don't mind, I'll simply explain
That I've found someone new and I'm living again
And the last thing I need is your sympathy
But try to understand, and please don't keep putting him down

Don't change my luck
I'm so tired of being moved around
Don't change my luck
Well for three long years I was on my own
Now I've finally found him
Baby don't change my luck
Now that I've found him
Please don't change my luck

Oh there were so many times I was ready to leave
And for so many reasons that you'd never believe
I stuck around like the fool you thought me to be

And I can't help it if you don't understand
And I won't take the blame, but baby you can
And anyway, it's time you learned a few things about me

Oh yes baby this is really the end
And when I walk out of here you won't see me again
And this time I'm taking my life with me
So please baby please, please don't keep hanging around

Don't change my luck
I'm so tired of being moved around
Don't change my luck
Well for three long years I was on my own
Now I've finally found him
Baby don't change my luck
Now that I've found him
Please don't change my luck
Now that I've found him
Baby don't change my luck
Baby don't change my luck
Please don't change my luck
Baby don't change my luck

Tired of Waiting

(Ray Davies)

So tired
Tired of waiting
Tired of waiting for you
I was a lonely soul
I had nobody 'til I met you
But you keep a me waiting all of the time
What can I do
It's your life and you can do what you want
Do what you like
But please don't keep a me waiting
Please don't keep a me waiting
'Cos I'm so tired of waiting
Tired of waiting
Tired of waiting for you
So tired
Tired of waiting
Tired of waiting for you
It's your life and you can do what you want
Do what you like
But please don't keep a me waiting
Please don't keep a me waiting
'Cos I'm so tired of waiting
Tired of waiting
Tired of waiting for you
So tired
Tired of waiting
Tired of waiting for you
For you
For you
For you
For you
For you
For you
For you
For you
For you
For you
For you
For you
For you
For you

Suicide

(Quatro Tuckey)

Goodbye American dream
With your life insurance and pension schemes
Whoah
It's a lonely ride down golden highways
Hope is blind
But shoot for the skyways
Promises - turn to dust
And it's suicide
I'm a prisoner in 72nd Street
And it's suicide
I'm a prisoner in 72nd Street
Assembly line living machine
Mass production bought sight unseen
Whoah
Rule and regulation daze
Please the man
Or lose your pay
And you sell your soul to society
And it's suicide
I'm a prisoner of 72nd Street
And it's suicide
I'm a prisoner of 72nd Street
Rise now
No more lies
Deep depression after feeling high
When promises come all undone
All your promises
Turn to dust
And it's suicide
I'm a prisoner of 72nd Street
And it's suicide
I'm a prisoner of 72nd Street
And it's suicide
I'm a prisoner of 72nd Street
And it's suicide
I'm a prisoner of 72nd Street
And it's suicide
I'm a prisoner of 72nd Street
And it's suicide
I'm a prisoner of 72nd Street

Evie

(Vanda Young)

I got some money in my pocket
I got my car keys in my hand
I got myself a couple of tickets
To see a rockin' rollin' band
Come on girl just get on your shoes
We're gonna hear some sound
Come on babe you know there ain't no time
Don't mess around
Evie Evie Evie Evie let your hair hang downEvie Evie Evie Evie let your hair hang down
Evie Evie Evie Evie let your hair hang downEvie Evie Evie Evie let your hair hang down
You got the body of a woman
The way you move is like a queen
You got the face to raise a riot
And still you're only seventeen
But little girl you're oh so shy
You hardly make a sound
Come on babe you know there ain't no time
Don't mess around
Evie Evie Evie Evie let your hair hang downEvie Evie Evie Evie let your hair hang down
Evie Evie Evie Evie let your hair hang downEvie Evie Evie Evie let your hair hang down
So won't you try it baby
I'll take you by the hand
'Cos there's a world out there for you
To know and understand
You gotta chance so take it
You gotta pick and choose
Why don't you just give me one more try
You know you can't lose
Evie Evie Evie Evie let your hair hang downEvie Evie Evie Evie let your hair hang down
Evie Evie Evie Evie let your hair hang downEvie Evie Evie Evie let your hair hang down
You got the body of a woman
You nearly make me lose my breath
You know you give me such a feeling
You almost scare me half to death
But little girl you're so reserved
You hardly make a sound
C'mon baby don't you be so shy don't mess around
Evie Evie Evie Evie let your hair hang downEvie Evie Evie Evie let your hair hang down

The Race is On

(Chapman Chinn)

Go ahead and laugh at me, try to be the man you oughta be
Baby it's not hard to see what's going on
Well maybe we should celebrate, drink champagne, why should we wait
Why don't we ask some friends around, they can help us play this game we found
Let's bring everybody down
Will we ever be ready for what we're heading for
Here we stand like a couple of fools and the race is on
Hand in hand as we break the rules and the race is on
What's the cost to the one who lost when the race goes wrong
You may say why begin when we both can't win, but the race goes on
Hand in hand like a couple of fools and the race is on
Well surprise surprise, a few more lies, or do we simply call them alibis
This life we lead aint fooling either one of us
And while we're having so much fun let's not forget the lonely ones
It's lonely falling out of love, this game we play can be so rough
Now maybe we've gone far enough
Are you sure you know just what where heading for
Here we stand like a couple of fools and the race is on
Hand in hand as we break the rules and the race is on
What's the cost to the one who lost when the race goes wrong
You may say why begin when we both can't win, but the race goes on
Hand in hand like a couple of fools and the race is on
Here we stand like a couple of fools and the race is on
Hand in hand as we break the rules and the race is on
What's the cost to the one who lost when the race goes wrong
You may say why begin when we both can't win, but the race goes on
Hand in hand like a couple of fools and the race is on
The Race Is On
The Race Is On
The Race Is On
The Race Is On
The Race Is On
The Race Is On
The Race Is On
The Race Is On
The Race Is On
The Race Is On
The Race Is On
The Race Is On
The Race Is On
The Race Is On
The Race Is On

If You Can't Give Me Love

(Chapman Chinn)

Well I've seen you before on that discotheque floor
You were driving me out of my mind
But I could have swore that I saw something more in your eyes
Although you were surrounded by beauty unbounded
Your glance was intended for me
And though I tried to hide it I found myself looking to see you
So then you took your chances, you made your advances
Your touch took my breath away
But when you said hello, are you ready to go
Well I had just one thing to say
If you can't give me love honey, that aint enough
Let me go look for somebody else
If you can't give me feelings with old fashioned meanings
You're just in love with yourself
If you can't give me love(Love)If you can't give me love(Love)
If you can't give me love(Love)If you can't give me love(Love)
If you can't give me love(Love)
Well you may be the king of this discotheque scene
But honey I aint looking for that
What I need is a man, not some so-called aristocrat
Oh if only you'd waited, just hesitated, or maybe just asked me to dance
But you really don't know why I don't want to go
And baby that's why we don't stand a chance
So if you can't give me love honey, that aint enough
Let me go look for somebody else
If you can't give me feelings with old fashioned meanings
You're just in love with yourself
If you can't give me love(Love)If you can't give me love(Love)
If you can't give me love(Love)If you can't give me love(Love)
If you can't give me love(Love)
Oh if you can't give me love honey, that aint enough
Let me go look for somebody else
If you can't give me feelings with old fashioned meanings
You're just in love with yourself
If you can't give me love honey, that aint enough
Let me go look for somebody else
If you can't give me feelings with old fashioned meanings
You're just in love with yourself
If you can't give me love(Love)If you can't give me love(Love)
If you can't give me love(Love)If you can't give me love(Love)
If you can't give me love(Love)If you can't give me love(Love)
If you can't give me love(Love)If you can't give me love(Love)
Give me love(Love)Give me love(Love)
Give me love(Love)Give me love(Love)
Give me love(Love)

Breakdown

(Petty)

It's alright if you love me
It's alright if you don't
I'm not afraid of you running away
Only I get the feeling you won't
There's no use in pretending
Your eyes give you away
Something inside you
Is feeling like I do
We've said all there is to say
Baby breakdown
Go ahead and give it to me
Breakdown
Honey take me to the knife
Breakdown
Now I'm standing here can't you see
Breakdown is alright
It's alright
It's alright
It's alright if you love me
It's alright if you don't
I'm not afraid of you running away
Only I get the feeling you won't

Baby breakdown
Go ahead and give it to me
Breakdown
Honey take me to the knife
Breakdown
Now I'm standing here can't you see
Breakdown is alright

Non Citizen

(Quatro Tuckey)

Your mind is like a junkyard
All entangled like a web
You leave the wrecks of other people's lives
In a trail of tattered shreds

United Nations get-together
There's one of every kind
Of broken hearted, disappointed souls
All the waste you left behind

You're just a non citizen
Living in a city of fools
You're just a non citizen
Living in a city of fools

Oh excommunication
You don't enjoy a soul
Walk a mile above the others
Baby enjoying your lonely home

So keep your distance
Keep your cool
Laughing off your own blues
Fight for the right to remain uptight

You're a sad and lonely loser
You're just a non citizen
Living in a city of fools
You're just a non citizen

Living in a city of fools
But you're cool
You're afraid to venture out on the streets
Where the warm society lives

You're afraid to smile at anybody
It's more than you've got to give
So fight on fighter
And lose loser

Love can drive you insane you know
Broken hearted disappointed soul
Your song remains the same
You're just a non citizen

Living in a city of fools
You're just a non citizen
Living in a city of fools
But you're cool

Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo

(Derringer)

Well, who's got you in a firm grip hold
It was a warm dry night in the old town hall
The group started grooving and laying it down
Don't you know I'm never gonna do that funky sound

Rock 'n' roll hootchie koo Rock 'n' roll hootchie koo
Go little mamma
Light my fuse

Rock 'n' roll hootchie koo Rock 'n' roll hootchie koo
You're going out and spread the news
Well it must be something about the time of year
I'm goin' around back until you meet me there
We were rolling in the bush behind the barn
'Til my head started to ring like a fire alarm

Rock 'n' roll hootchie koo Rock 'n' roll hootchie koo
Go little mamma
Light my fuse

Rock 'n' roll hootchie koo Rock 'n' roll hootchie koo
You're going out and spread the news

Rock 'n' roll hootchie koo Rock 'n' roll hootchie koo
Go little mamma
Light my fuse

Rock 'n' roll hootchie koo Rock 'n' roll hootchie koo
You're going out and spread the news
Well I hope you all know what I'm talking about
The way you wriggle that thing it really knocks me out
I'm getting high of the jive of the old wahkoo
C'mon little baby let me do it to you

Rock 'n' roll hootchie koo Rock 'n' roll hootchie koo
Go little mamma
Light my fuse

Rock 'n' roll hootchie koo Rock 'n' roll hootchie koo
You're going out and spread the news

Rock 'n' roll hootchie koo Rock 'n' roll hootchie koo
Go little mamma
Light my fuse

Rock 'n' roll hootchie koo Rock 'n' roll hootchie koo
You're going out and spread the news

Rock 'n' roll hootchie koo Rock 'n' roll hootchie koo

Rock 'n' roll hootchie koo Rock 'n' roll hootchie koo
Go little mamma
Light my fuse

Rock 'n' roll hootchie koo Rock 'n' roll hootchie koo
You're going out and spread the news

Wiser Than You

(Quatro Tuckey)

You messed my mind
Destroyed my soul
How was I to know about the power of love
You were wiser and older than me
How you touched my heart
Then you ripped it apart
You changed an innocent smile and girlish laughter into crying eyes over night
Good luck I hope you realise
What I gave to you
A virgin's love
A child of trust
Makin' love was something new
You found me so young
And taught me all you knew
But I'm leaving 'Cos I'm wiser than you
I remember when
I thought you were my friend
I believed all those lies you said
She doesn't understand
You're the only one for me
Secret rendezvous
Stolen nights for two
Then suddenly something happened and I realised
I'd given it all to you
Good luck I hope you realise
What I gave to you
A virgin's love
A child of trust
Makin' love was something new
You found me so young
And taught me all you knew
But I'm leaving 'Cos I'm wiser than you
Good luck I hope you realise
What I gave to you
A virgin's love
A child of trust
Makin' love was something new
You found me so young
And taught me all you knew
But I'm leaving 'Cos I'm wiser than you
Good luck I hope you realise
What I gave to you
A virgin's love
A child of trust
Makin' love was something new
You found me so young
And taught me all you knew
But I'm leaving 'Cos I'm wiser than you
