THE VIEW

 

The man sits in the shadow of the sun

Watching the people just for fun

Walk, push, shove and run

He counts the clouds one by one

The waiting game had begun

No one knows what heíd done

 

See the man who is bad

The man who is sad

The man whoíd been had

What is the view like from the thirteenth floor

 

Iíll take the moon from your skies

Iíll take the stars from your eyes

I told the truth, they told lies

See yourself tomorrow as you are today

Talking with nothing else to say

Is this the price we have to pay

 

See the man who is bad

The man who is sad

The man whoís been had

What is the view like from the thirteenth floor

 

The rest of his life he will be hid

Inside his mind heís just a kid

Can they be sure he really did

 

See the man who is bad

The man who is sad

The man whoís been had

What is the view like from the thirteenth floor

What is the view like from the thirteenth floor

What is the view like from the thirteenth floor

 

 

IF YOU DON'T COME BACK   

 

Well a noise woke me up this morning

I looked through Venetian blinds

The car was gone and you were gone

And I almost lost my mind

 

If you donít come back

(If you donít come back)

Well if you donít come back

(If you donít come back)

Well, baby you can call up the people at this crazy house

And take this crazy man away

 

I threw myself up against a wall now

I tore my clothes and I sobbed

I ran out on the street in my stocking feet

Yelling, "police Iíve been robbed"

 

If you donít come back

(If you donít come back)

Well if you donít come back

(If you donít come back)

Well, baby you can call up the people at this crazy house

And take this crazy man away

 

Mrs Bromley talking about me

To the people way across the street

She says, "I made that boy now a bucket of stew

But the poor thing just wonít eat"

 

If you donít come back

(If you donít come back)

Well if you donít come back

(If you donít come back)

Well, baby you can call up the people at this crazy house

And take this crazy man away

 

The doc came up to see me

Inspected with a fine tooth comb

He says, "you ain't sick, but you're gonna die

If you donít get your baby back home"

 

If you donít come back

(If you donít come back)

Well if you donít come back

(If you donít come back)

THOUGHTS OF AN OLD MAN

 

Early in the morning as the dawn begins to break

He opens up his window, feels the sunrise on the lake

Slowly rising higher as the wind it softly sighs

The sun is all around him, itís warming up the sky

 

Later in the morning, getting colder, feels like rain

This awful autumn weather, yes it always is the same

I thought the sun was too good to be true this time of year

So Iíll sit down in my armchair and I guess Iíll have a beer

Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba

Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba

Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba

Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba

 

Later in the evening as the sun begins to set

He closes up the window, turns on the hi-fi set

Slowly sinking lower, hears the wind, it softly cries

Stars are all around him, warming up the sky

In the morning

(Nothing much is found, nothing ever did)

In the morning

(Nothing to be seen since he was a kid)

In the morning

(Nobody knows how but the world's been hid)

In the morning

 

Itís so sad

Itís so sad

Itís so sad

Itís so sad

 

 

 

FRANCIS

 

Remember in school, he was ever so cool about teacher

Acting the fool, he would break all the rules of the preacher

And Francis philanderer, on Saturday

Met up with Alice and took her away

 

As he grew older, he also grew bolder and sold her

It wasnít like him to be mean with his money, he told her

He took her away for a year and a day

He gave her the time of her life

He thought he would buy everything that he wanted

But he couldnít buy him a wife

A-money couldnít buy him a wife

 

He didnít expect it, he thought sheíd accept him for money

He felt dejected, now heís just a rejected honey

And Francis philanderer, on Saturday

He met up with Alice and took her away

He thought he could buy everything that he wanted

Money brought him nothing but strife

He bought all the cars and a house in the country

But money couldnít buy him a wife

Money couldnít buy him a wife

 

Francis philanderer

A-Francis philanderer, baby, woh, oh

(Money couldnít buy him a wife)

A-Francis, yeah, yeah

(Money couldnít buy him a wife)

It couldnít buy him a wife

(Money couldnít buy him a wife)

Francis philanderer, yeah

(Money couldnít buy him a wife)

Spent all his money, woh

(Money couldnít buy him a wife)

Yeah, yeah said itís all right

(Money couldnít buy him a wife)

 

 

 

I PROMISE TO LOVE YOU

 

Youíre the girl I take my loving home to

Iíd like to share it with you

Just give me a chance to prove myself

I know you'll admire the view

And maybe one fine day

You will say I was good for you

 

I promise to love you

I promise to love you

 

Long to hold and squeeze you

Try my best to please you

Long to hold and kiss you

Promise I will love you, yeah

Do you realise that I would die to be

The man you depend upon

The man you descend upon for love

I promise to love you

 

Long to hold and squeeze you

Try my best to please you

Long to hold and kiss you

Promise I will love you, yeah

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO HAPPY   

 

Captain Jim, whatís wrong with him

He used to be so strong, now heís dying

Indian scout, dance and jump about

He used to be so brave, now heís crying

 

Oh, whatever happened to happy

Was he all a state of mind

Whatever happened to the happy days

We left far behind

 

Rainy days, the games we played

My room, the place was made to make me happy

Rain would fall so I would call

My friend Joe when he would call me happy

 

Oh, whatever happened to happy

Was he all a state of mind

Whatever happened to the happy days

We left far behind

 

I wonít forget them

Things that have passed me by

I can see all the things that used to be

Still within the heart of me

 

Whatever happened to happy

Was he all a state of mind

Whatever happened to the happy days

We left far behind

 

Dressed in white, she looks all right

She was the girl who dressed up Sunday morning
