Give me London by the sea

Verse:
You can honeymoon
in old Cancun,
you can walk the talk
in Frank’s New York,
you can catch a plane
to southern Spain,
and show your form
in Benidorm,
you can make your home
in sunny Rome,
but there’s one thing I’ve got to say,
on any day,
in any way,
give me London by the sea.

Zero X

Verse:
‘You wanna put a fruity
where the sun don’t shine,
tell me I’m a cutie
and that I won’t mind,
look upon a beauty
and you may just find
I care.’

Promises at midnight

You can keep
your promises at midnight,
the words you share
just hang in the air.

(Gonna make) time for us tonight

I know that you’ve been working
every hour, every day,
and taking all your chances,
counting out your pay.

She reminds me of you

I knew
I was over you
in my mind.

I miss
each and every kiss
by design.

With laughing eyes
and sad goodbyes,
gorgeous smile
and carefree style,
sweet perfume
in every room,
she reminds me
of you.

I try
every alibi
I can find.

I lie
by her side tonight
one more time.

With laughing eyes
and sad goodbyes,
gorgeous smile
and carefree style,
sweet perfume
in every room,
she reminds me
of you.

With flowing hair
and touches there,
sun-tanned back
and jumping Jack,
sense of fun
and joy to come,
she reminds me
of you.

She reminds me
of you.

Liquid sunshine

When it’s hot
and what you’ve got
is all you need
to sow the seed,
liquid sunshine (is all you need),
liquid sunshine (to sow the seed).

Player’s lament

Work in progress

 

Never a day goes by

From player to manager

It’s not what you’ve got

but what you say and do

A merchant of menace

In Room 505
there’s a man alive
to the few things that matter to him.
In the room next door
a man of the law
counts out the wages of sin.

East of Eden Park

East of Eden Park
where the dirt glows in the dark
you’d never touch the bark
of the trees,
there stands a handsome school
with clever kids, no fools,
east of Eden Park
in the dark.

When the honeymoon is over

Verse 1
When the honeymoon is over
and the pieces packed away,
pictures hung in silver frames
with tokens of the day.

Chorus
When the honey, honey, honeymoon is over,
days of wine and roses
are to come.
When the honey, honey, honeymoon is over,
take a walk together
in the sun.

Verse 2
When the honeymoon is over
and the relatives all gone,
everything they came to say
still lingers on and on.

Chorus
When the honey, honey, honeymoon is over,
days of wine and roses
are to come.
When the honey, honey, honeymoon is over,
take a walk together
in the sun.

Middle 8
Here at last
the die is cast,
your single days
are long, long passed.

Chorus
When the honey, honey, honeymoon is over,
days of wine and roses
are to come.
When the honey, honey, honeymoon is over,
take a walk together
in the sun.

Make your lives together
so much fun.
