1992 Including Songs From The Hit Parade

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 lots 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 but you must have left by then

And you know that stuff about your 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 lots 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; I 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 every day
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 you're 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 every day
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

And 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
Oh, 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, oh, it's over, it's over, yes, it's over, now come play with me
It's over, oh, it's over, it's over, yes, it's over, now come play with me
It's over, oh, it's over, it's over, yes, it's over, now come play with me
It's over, oh, 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 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

Yes, anything you want to do
I just know that I'll want to do it to you
But we must go

Flying Saucer

She waited there just like she said she would
But it was all too much when she said that she loved me
I felt right there and then as if I could reach out and touch the stars above me

And I surrender
I can't forget her
I still remember every word she said

And I want her
She kind of launched a flying saucer right inside my head

There are a lot of things I thought I'd never do
But one look in her eyes and I knew what I was missing
That's why I thought I'd come and talk to you
Oh, well you seem so wise but I'm not even listening

Because my fireball is going to call
It's getting late (she knows I'll wait)
Oh I surrender
I can't forget her
I still remember every word she said

She got me spinning from the beginning
I see her face in outer space
Oh, I want her
She kind of launched a flying saucer right inside my head

Boing!

Why do you say you care?
Well you don't show it and you know it just isn't fair
You just need someone to blame
Well “someone”’s not me but I know he'll be just the same

You’ll come bouncing, bouncing back to me
You’ll come bouncing, bouncing back to me
You’ll come bouncing, bouncing back to me
You’ll come bouncing, bouncing back to me

I don't know what to believe
Last night you held me; today you tell me you're going to leave
Oh, you've got so much to learn
Go, if you must go
Oh, but I know you will return

And you’ll come bouncing, bouncing back to me
You’ll come bouncing, bouncing back to me
You’ll come bouncing, bouncing back to me
You’ll come bouncing, bouncing back to me

You'll come bouncing, bouncing back to me
You'll come bouncing, bouncing back to me
You'll come bouncing, bouncing back to me
You'll come bouncing, bouncing back to me

Love Slave

I know what you're going to say
You want to do something scary today
Sure I want to have some fun
I just don't know about some of the things that you've done

But I'm your love slave and you'll get what you crave

Oh, you've got a crazy thirst and every single kiss is just like the first
Oh, you have sucked me dry
How many more times do you want me to try?

Because I'm your love slave and you'll get what you crave

You know the things that you adore?
Well no one ever asked me to do that before
I want to be your special friend
I'm just kind of scared about the way it might end

But I'm your love slave and you'll get what you crave

Sticky

I don't want to hear it, there's nothing left to talk about
Get along, get along, get out
Get along, get along, get out of here

Well I give and you take, I think I made one big mistake
Now get along, get along, get out
Get along, get along, get out of here
Get along, get along, get out
Get along, get along, get out of here

Because I've put up with you for too long
I thought I could stick with you but I was wrong

Well, I might be thick skinned but I find your presence sickening
Now get along, get along, get out
Get along, get along, get out of here
Get along, get along, get out
Get along, get along, get out of here

Because I've put up with you for too long
I thought I could stick with you but I was wrong

And there's nothing left I want to say
There's nothing left I want to say
There's nothing left I want to say
There's nothing left I want to say

Except “I've put up with you for too long
I thought I could stick with you but I was wrong”

And there's nothing left I want to say
There's nothing left I want to say
There's nothing left I want to say
There's nothing left I want to say

The Queen of Outer Space

She's a mixed up girl from a different world
She's come, come, come, come to a yellow sun
When she began she was a man
Go, go, go, go like a dynamo

She's my colonel spider
You know, she's a deep space rider
I feel beautiful beside her

She doesn't need air; she can breathe anywhere
Come, come, come, come and you can have some
We like to chase through outer space
Go, go, go, go you know

She's my colonel spider
She's a deep space rider
I feel beautiful beside her

She's my colonel spider
You know, she's a deep space rider
I feel beautiful beside her
I feel wonderful beside her

No Christmas

I wonder if you're going to ask me why I lied
I wonder if you're going to show you're angry with me
I wonder if I could explain this if I tried
I wonder if I'm going to know when you forgive me

When you forgive me, you forgive me, you forgive me
Will you stay with me, you stay with me, you stay with me?

And all those awful things you said at first
Don't shout, I understand, you're pretending to punish me
Well, I'm listening, so do your worst
I don't doubt that you're mad but it can't be ending

It can't be ending, it can't be ending, can't be ending
You're still pretending, still pretending, still pretending

Don't say we've reached the end; you can't be right
For goodness sake, you must know I care about you
Please stay my best friend one more night
I couldn't face another day alone without you

Alone without you, alone without you, alone without you
I care about you, I care about you, I care about you

Alone without you, alone without you, alone without you
I care about you, I care about you, I care about you
