This I Know

Like the clouds that bring the rain
Like the sun that makes the flowers
Like the soft and gentle breeze
I will blow away the showers

This I know, this I know and I know
I love you for the rest of my life
I can't wait till tomorrow comes
I can't wait to see the sunlight in your eyes
When you know that I am yours

I don't know what makes the stars
Light up the sky when nighttime's falling
But like the stars up in the sky
My love for you is everlasting

This I know, this I know and I know
I love you for the rest of my life
I can't wait till tomorrow comes
I can't wait to see the sunlight in your eyes
When you know that I am yours

When the leaves fall sadly down
When the autumn winds are blowing
They don't feel sad because they know
A new life comes at springtime's dawning

This I know, this I know and I know
I love you for the rest of my life
I love you for the rest of my life

A Little Bit Of Sunlight

Tears would fall like the falling rain,
There would be a sea.
But you don't have to cry to prove your love,
Just believe in me.

'Cause a little bit of sunlight is all that I want from you,
A little bit of sunlight,
Is all that I want,
All that I want,
All that I want from you.

A man who can't live with cloudy skies,
Should only wait and see.
Soon all the clouds will disappear,
And leave just you and me.

'Cause a little bit of sunlight is all that I want from you,
A little bit of sunlight,
Is all that I want,
All that I want,
All that I want from you.

Tell Me Now So I'll Know

Tell me now so I'll know,
There are so many things that I could do.
If you tell me now that I'd know what to do,
Tell me now so I'll know.

Tell me now so I'll know,
There are so many things for me to say.
Without your love I just couldn't live each day,
Tell me now so I'll know.

People tell me that you'll just drift away,
Oh believe me, I need you more each day.
You are my hope, my everything,
I live just for you.

I love you deeply but I guess it doesn't show,
I ache inside 'cause my lips can't let you know
Oh darling, please tell me the truth,
You know I live just for you.

Tell me now so I'll know,
There are so many things that I could do.
If you tell me now that I'd know what to do,
Tell me now so I'll know.

There's A New World Just Opening For Me

Now I know just what I've been doing wrong,
Life seems empty, but it won't last for long.
I shan't go on this way.
There's a new world just opening for me.

Been alive, but it could be lying down. [?]
Just can't tell when the devil's on the prowl.
I can't pretend no more.
There's a new world just opening for me.
There's a new world just opening for me.

Win the battle, but the victory brings you pain.
You make confessions, but you do the same again.
I won't go on this way.
There's a new world just opening for me.
I won't go on this way.
There's a new world just opening for me.

All Night Stand

All night stand,
Been around seen a thousand places.
All night stand,
Seen a good half a million faces.

Because I've lived this life,
And I made it for myself.
If you scandalize my name,
Then you scandalize yourself.

Because I'm not to blame,
For the things that I've been doing.
You all say that I'm bad,
And I'll only end in ruin.

All night stand,
With a different girl each night.
All night stand,
With two hundred miles to ride.

But I won't give it up,
As long as I can make the bread.
When I do, I shall stop,
Close my eyes and go to bed.

And forget all this night[?],
And all the people on my back.
Once I'm free from these chains,
I ain't never looking back.

All night stand,
Been around seen a million faces, yeah.
All night stand,
Seen a good half a million places, yeah.

All night stand,
Can't get these people off my back.
All night stand,
Ten percent for this and that.

All night stand,
All night stand.

Time Will Tell

Time will tell if I will drift eternally,
Through life instead of being someone.
All of my life, you are the one, you're on my mind.
Have a good time, do what you want, but you will find,

Time will tell if I'll survive.
I'd rather be dead than just pretend I'm alive.
Time will tell, it's just a matter of time.
It's just a matter of time.

Time will tell if we will be the same as now,
Or not, if not, then never mind.
All of my life, you are the one, you're on my mind.
Have a good time, do what you want, but you will find,

Time will tell if I'll survive.
I'd rather be dead than just pretend I'm alive.
Time will tell, it's just a matter of time.
It's just a matter of time.

Time will tell if dreams become reality,
For you got me, as long as you want.
All of my life, you are the one, you're on my mind.
Have a good time, do what you want, but you will find,

Time will tell if I'll survive.
I'd rather be dead than just pretend I'm alive.
Time will tell, it's just a matter of time.
It's just a matter of time.
It's just a matter of time.

And I Will Love You

I know a place,
Not far away where the Sun always shines.
You will be mine,
And I'll love you.

I know a place where the Sun always shines.
You will be mine,
And I'll love you.

Church bells will chime,
And they will know you are mine.
All of the time,
I will love you.

Church bells will chime so they know you are mine.
All of the time,
I will love you.

The finest moments in my life,
Is when you say you'll be my wife.

Church bells will chime,
And they will know you are mine.
All of the time,
I will love you.

Church bells will chime so they know you are mine.
All of the time,
I will love you.

Yeah, I'm gonna love you.
I'm gonna love you,

Sand On My Shoes

As I sit by the sea
Drink tequila by the shade of a tree
There's a seniorita sat on my knee
Sprinkling sand all over me

I've got sand on my shoes
I've lost everything that I'm gonna lose
I've got nothing but the sun and the moon
And the sand that's on the beach

I am happy though my shoes are tattered and torn
Because the sea is so shiney
Ba ba-um-ba
Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba-um-ba

I've got sand on my shoes

Thought I was civilized
Till I saw the sea and I realized
That the city life was just not for me
Left my troubles behind me
Ba ba-um-ba
Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba-um-ba

I've got sand on my shoes
I've got nothing else that I'm gonna lose
I've got nothing but the sun and the moon
And that's plenty for me

I've got sand on my shoes
I've got sand on my shoes
I've got sand on my shoes
Sand on my shoes
Ba ba ba ba-um-ba
Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba-um-ba

Lavender Hill

I want to walk eternity,
In through the land of make believe.
And watch the clouds roll over me,
And let the sun shine down on me.
The only place that I wanna be,
Lavender Hill for me.

Wish I could live on sugar and milk,
Then I could live on Lavender Hill.
Then I could raise my head to the sky,
And let the sun saturate me with love.

I wanna walk you up Lavender Hill,
Everybody loves Lavender Hill.
Even the bird that sits in the tree,
Seems to sing sweet melodies.
Even the breeze is whispering,
Lavender Hill for me.

While people eat their biscuits with tea,
They dream of daffodils that sway in the breeze.
And every Sunday afternoon,
Tidy ladies shine their shoes.
And every little lady dreams,
Lavender memories.

Lavender Hill for me.
Lavender Hill for me.
I wanna walk you up Lavender Hill.
I wanna walk you up Lavender Hill.

Rosemary Rose

Rosemary Rose,
Nature sure gave you such a beautiful nose.
'Though you're not beautiful as someone would know,
That Rosemary Rose,

Has eyes of blue,
And someone is treasuring a picture of you,
Taken on a holiday when you were just three,
My sweet Rosemary.

You look nothing like a child,
Yet you're such a little baby.
Chewing on your liquorish gum, and cigarettes.
Rosemary Rose,

Carefully sewing on your buttons and bows.
Hoping that someone will be wanting to know,
Of Rosemary Rose.

Misty Water

By the town of Straight and Narrow,
There's a dark and misty place.
Everything is hazy,
So the people are afraid.

All except Maria's daughters,
Who believe in misty ways.
Everything is lovely,
In a misty morning glaze.

I like misty water,
I like fog and haze.
Anne Maria and her daughters,
They like misty water.

I like misty water,
I like fog and haze.
Anne Maria and her daughters,
Take a sip of misty water.

Though Maria is not lovely,
She's the lady of my dreams.
'Cause I see my lady,
Through a misty, silky screen.

And seeing is believing,
But I can't believe my eyes.
Everything is lovely,
In a misty paradise.

I like misty water,
I like fog and haze.
Anne Maria and her daughters,
They like misty water.

They like misty water,
I like fog and haze.
Anne Maria and her daughters,
Take a sip of misty water.

Did You See His Name?

Did you see his name in the local paper,
Stole a tin of beans,
From a cut-priced grocery store.
The judge said he must pay,
So he put him on probation,
And the paper gave his name.

Did you see his name in the criminal section,
And the center page.
Gave his name and his address,
They stopped him doing it again,
So they put him to dishonour,
And put the man to shame.

He lost his little job,
His employer was absolved of blame.
His world just crumbled down,
Incidently, did you see his name,
In the obiturary column,
Letters edged in black.
Life was much too hard to live,
So he brought it to an end,
In his gas-filled maisonette.
Because he couldn't stand the strain.

La-la-la-la- la
Life was much too hard to live,
So he brought it to an end,
In his gas-filled maisonette.
Because he couldn't stand the strain.

Did you see his name?
Did you see his name?
Did you see his name?

Where Did My Spring Go?

Where did the spring go?
Where did the trees go?
Where did the sun go?
Where did the bluebirds fly?
Why did the rainbow turn into shadows?

Why am I cold now?
Why does my skin sag?
Why ain't my back straight?
Why do my feet ache?
Where did my youth go?
Where did my life go?

Remember walking in the rain,
And getting soaking wet,
Now I got rheumatic pains,
And I really do regret it.

Where did my teeth go?
Where did my muscles go?
Where did my shoulders go?
Where did my chest go?
When you were loving me,
You were just using me.
You would employ me,
You would destroy me.
Now all I've got are varicose veins.

Where did the spring go?
Where did my hormones go?
Where did my energy go?
Where did my go go?
Where did the pleasure go?
Where did my hair go?

Remember all those sleepless nights,
Making love by candlelight,
And every time you took my love,
You were shortening my life.

Where did my teeth go?
Where did my hair go?
Where did my shoulders go?
Where did my chest go?
Where did my hormones go?
Where did my go go?
Where did my energy go?
Where did my skin go?
Where did my muscles go?
Where did my liver go?
Where did my heart go?
Where did my bones go?

When I Turn Off The Living Room Light

Who cares if you're Jewish,
And your breath smells of garlic,
And your nose is a shiny red light.
To me you are gorgeous,
And everything's right,
When I turn off the living room light.

Your clothes are old-fashioned,
Your knuckles are bony,
Your hair looks a terrible sight.
But I don't have to see you,
The way that you are,
When I turn off the living room light.
When I turn off the living room light.
I don't have to see you,
The way that you are,
When I turn off the living room light.

Well it's not that you are ugly,
And I'm not being cruel,
It helps me to relax, dear,
It helps to keep me cool.
Now I am not intending,
To make you feel ashamed,
What's wrong in me pretending?
'Cause you can't help being plain.

Your nose may be bulbous,
Your face may be spotty,
Your skin may be wrinkled and tight.
But I don't want to see you,
The way that you are,
So I turn off the living room light.

We don't feel so ugly,
We don't feel so draggy,
We don't feel so twisted up tight.
And we don't feel as ugly as we really are,
When we turn off the living room light.
When we turn off the living room light.
We don't feel as ugly as we really are,
When we turn off the living room light.

Till Death Do Us Part

What can I do?
How can I show you,
And let you see,
That I am someone,
That you want me to be.

I'm only me,
Not someone better,
Not someone good.
I'd be a soldier,
That's if I only could.

If I were king,
I'd tell my army,
To change the world.
Then I'd be someone,
Like you want me to be.

In my little life,
I know that the world must keep on turning,
Even though it leaves me far behind.
Life is like a school,
But I'm not prepared to keep on learning,
Even though it treats me like a fool.

This is our lot,
To live together,
Not live apart.
Let's stay together,
Until death us do part.

Not just a day,
But till forever,
Just as the stars,
Just as the ending,
Until death us do part.

Pictures In The Sand

And I'm gonna spend my time,
Drawing pictures in the sand for you.
And I'm gonna ride the tide[?],
And I'm gonna make a rendezvous.

Sitting by the sea,
Sipping at my tea,
Drawing pictures in the sand,
And writing message to you.

Pictures in the sand (Drawing pictures in the sand)
There is nothing I would rather do (There is nothing I would rather do)
Than just sit here in the sand (Drawing pictures in the sand)
And think of thinks I'd like to say to you (I love you true)
Every single day (Every single day)
I waste my time away,
Drawing pictures in the sand,
And writing messages to you.

(All together)
Pictures in the sand. (Drawing pictures in the sand)
Pictures in the sand.

If I didn't have a dime,
Would you still be loving me?
While I spend my whole life through,
Drawing pictures just for you.
But I could never draw my love,
It's so very hard to do.

Every single day,
I waste my time away,
Drawing pictures in the sand,
And writing messages to you.

Pictures in the sand. (Drawing pictures in the sand)
Pictures in the sand. (Do-bum, do-bum...)
Pictures in the sand. (Drawing pictures in the sand)

This Strange Effect

You've got this strange effect on me,
And I like it.
You've got this strange effect on me,
And I like it.

You make my world seem right,
You make my darkness bright, oh yes,
You've got this strange effect on me,
And I like it.
And I like it.

And I like the way you kiss me,
Don't know if I should.
But this feeling is love, and I know it,
That's why I feel good.

You've got this strange effect on me,
And I like it.
You've got this strange effect on me,
And I like it.

You make my world seem right,
You make my darkness bright, oh yes,
You've got this strange effect on me,
And I like it.
And I like it.
And I like it.

I Go To Sleep

When I look up from my pillow I dream you are there with me.
Though you are far away I know you'll always be near to me.
I go to sleep, sleep, and imagine that you're there with me.
I go to sleep, sleep, and imagine that you're there with me.

I look around me and feel you are ever so close to me.
Each tear that flows from my eyes brings back memories of you to me.
I go to sleep, sleep, and imagine that you're there with me.
I go to sleep, sleep, and imagine that you're there with me.

I was wrong, I will cry, I will love you to the day I die.
You alone, you alone and no one else, you were meant for me.

When morning comes once more I have the loneliness you left me.
Each day drags by until finally night time descends on me.
I go to sleep, sleep, and imagine that you're there with me.
I go to sleep, sleep, and imagine that you're there with me.

Groovy Movies

Sometimes I think I'm gonna better myself,
Searching for acceptance in this big, wide world.
Sometimes I think I won't make it,
Playing in a rock 'n' roll band.
Sometimes I wanna be a picture director,
And try to make the world understand.

By making groovy movies,
By making groovy movies,
By making groovy movies.

All the movie makers of the world would be,
Falling over backwards to have dinner with me.
I'll go down to [?]
Anytime I feel like a game[?].
Or take a long vacation to San Tropez,
And think of all the money I made.

By making groovy movies,
By making groovy movies,
By making groovy movies.

I don't want to be a producer,
I don't want to be a big star.
I just want to be a picture director,
And smoke a big Havana cigar.

By making groovy movies,
By making groovy movies,
By making groovy movies,
By making groovy movies,
By making groovy movies,
By making groovy movies.

Mr. Reporter

Hey, Mr. Reporter,
How 'bout talking about yourself?
Do you like what you're doing,
Or is it that you can do nothing else?

Hey, Mr. Reporter,
I'll believe all that you put down.
I'll believe the sun is going up,
Even though it's going down.

Hey, Mr. Reporter,
Don't you twist my words around.
I'll kill you, I won't let you,
Distort my simple sound.

Did your daddy stop you playing
With your friends when you were young?
And is that why you run down
All the young folks have their fun. [?]

The reason I am stupid,
Is because I read you every day.
You misquote all of the true things
Because they rub you the wrong way.

Hey, Mr. Reporter,
How 'bout talking about yourself?
Do you like what you're doing,
Or is it that you can do nothing else?

Elevator Man

I'm the elevator man,
I take people up and down all day,
Some get out others stay,
Some get off some go all the way.
I'm the eklevator man,
I see lots of different faces,
I see losers going nowhere,
I see winners going places.
I take 'em up and I bring 'em down

Everybody goes up and everybody comes down
Everydody goes up and everybody comes down

Dirty old man with wanderinr eyes,
Lookin' at bums and tits and thighs.
Macho man with rub on tan,
He's the man with wandering hands.
People with dandruff, spots and pimples,
People with warts and scars and dimples,
They push by don't give a damn,
I'm just the elevator man.

I see them go up and I see 'em come down.

Everybody goes up but everybody comes down,
Everybody goes up but everybody comes down.

I see the timid and the insecure,
I see the confident and self assured,
They all get out when they reach their floor,
But I always know I'm gonna see them once more.

'Cos Everybody goes up and everybody goes down,
Everybody goes up but everybody comes down,
Everybody goes up and everybody comes down,
Everybody goes up.

Yeah

I'm the elevator man,
Lots of people pass me by,
No one thinks I give a damn,
I'm just the elevator man,
I hear confessions, watch expressions,
Silent madness and depression.
I hear rumours, conversations, little facts and relevations.
'Cos what goes up, gotta come down

Everybody goes up and everybody comes down,
Everybody goes up but everybody comes down.

Everybody goes up and everybody comes down,
Everybody goes up and everybody comes down

Everybody goes up and everybody comes down
Everybody goes up

Against The Tide

We are men of destiny, our fates amalgamated in one
Comrades against adversity, heading for the setting sun
But all about us there are doubters who'll cheer us when the battle is won
They said it could never be, said that it could never be done

We're against the tide, with the wind in our face
With the Great Divide and a goal to chase
And if I don't survive, will you stay on the case
And will you testify in my place?
So bring on the storm
And bring on the rain
When we're against the tide
That's the time when we're on the top of our game

We are men of destiny, our fates amalgamated in one
Comrades against adversity, heading for the setting sun
But when the cruel winds blow, we'll be in the race
When your spirits are low, we'll put a smile on your face
When the going's slow, we're gonna pick up the pace
But with dignity and with grace
La la la la la la, la la la la la la
La la la la la la, la la la la la la

We're gonna weather the storm (we're gonna weather the storm)
So bring on the rain (so bring on the rain)
Weather the storm (weather the storm)
We're gonna shrug off the rain (we're gonna shrug off the rain)
When we're against the tide
That's the time when we're on top of our game

When we're against the tide, that's when we'll do our best

And they'll be all surprised when we stand the test
With a ticket to ride and a mutual quest
Together we'll stand the test
So bring on the storm (bring on the storm)
The thunder and rain (the thunder and rain)
Bring on the storm (bring on the storm)
Bring on the rain (bring on the rain)
When we're against the tide
That's the time when we're on top of our game

Be Rational

I've so much still to learn
I've found another open door
To find, discover and explore
And when that's done there'd still be more

I thought I knew it all
But now I've broken all my rules
She got me stumbling like a fool
My knowledge seems so minuscule

Be rational, think
What is it I'm feeling?
I feel so alive, yet paralyzed

Really goes to show
How deep emotions sometimes go
The more we learn, the less we know

Be rational, think of the club
Consider your reputation
A raconteur, adventurer

Be rational, be wise
Assess the situation
Be calm, be cold, it will be so

And logically I should decline
There's no equation to define
A feeling that is so divine
A man like me just has no time

I'm such a worldly man
For once I'm stuck without a plan
For once I need a guiding hand
Somebody help me understand

You're intelligent, you're smart
But it's not in your equation
Or on the map, or in the chart

You see you simply lost your heart

Let It Be Written

When I'm thinking of the pages still unwritten
Staring at that empty page fills me with anger and with rage
It gives me chills, it makes me age

When I think of all the pages to be written
I'll write the lines, contrive the plot
I'll take the praise and all the knocks
And every word and in each line is a creation that's all mine

In 80 days 200 pages to be written
Still they're saying
(When will it be written?) I don't know
(When will it be written?) I don't know
(When will it be finished?) When it is done!

Writing is my occupation, money is the motivation
Must maintain my reputation, looking for some inspiration

[From the musical, but not on the demo:]
Another line, another tale, another chapter to unveil
Another page, another book, but no one knows the toil it took
[?]

(When will it be written?)
(Soon it will be written)
(So let it be written, let it be done)

Pressures from the left and right keeping me awake at night
[?] finish it in time, the time has come for us to see some
Oh let it be finished, let it be done

All the knowledge ever learned, every peak and every plain
Every action, every stage, starting in every age

Nothing for another Frenchman, who then?
I promised my publishers and even more horrifying creature
Than a sea monster from 20,000 , more fantastic though
Than the prehistoric reptiles in the centre of the earth
But now I am faced to my greatest disputed challenge
The most icy inscrutable creature known to science: an Englishman

Now it's time to start the chain reaction
Clear my mind, begin this new idea
Treat the beast with great respect, entrap it with my intellect

(When will you deliver?) I don't know
(When will you deliver?) I don't know
(When will it be written?) When it is done!

(How can this be written?) I don't know
(Yes, it must be written) I don't know
(When will it be written?) When it is done!

The Empire Song (Our World)

Forever, forever
This empire will last forever
Forever, forever
This empire will last forever

Looking at the heavens
For a sign from God to come
But the face of God will blind you
Because God is the sun

And the sun goes round the earth
And sets in the far West
But the empire is the world
And the sun will never set

This is our world
Our world, our world
Our world, our world

I can tell you what you need to know
About the upper and the middle and the classes below
About the cruelty and the scandals, injustice and greed
In our world, in our world
That will last forever more

'Cause they're saying it's all gonna end
And there's a holocaust a-rising over the horizon
Today the empire stands alone
Against the forces of evil and the great unknown
It's gonna darken the sky and blind out the sun
And eclipse our world
They thought would last forever more

Our world, our world, our world, our world

This throne of kings is sacred 'cross this emerald isle set in a silver sea
This is our world
And any man who opposes it will have to answer to God and me
This is our world
United we stand, divided we fall
Our world, our world

Raise the banner high, hear the bugle call
We're the best with our backs against the wall
And protect the throne and stand alone
And preserve our world
They said would last forever more

Sure as mother is the moon and father is the sun
The pleasures of the flesh will condemn us each and everyone
United we stand, divided we fall

Our world, our world, our world, our world
Our world, our world, our world, our world

God save us all
Out world, our world, our world, our world
Will last forever more

It was not a mystic turn of fate
That made this tiny island rule the world
This is our world
It was God that made this nation great
It was our fate to dominate this world
This is our world
United we stand, divided we fall

Blessed are the patriots, protectors of this country and our queen
This is our world
Preserving law and order while using new technology
To intercept our enemies, detain subversive forces
From bringing down the standards of our world
This is our world

God bless Queen Victoria
And let the sun never set
On our world

A Well-Bred Englishman

While the Spaniards are content to lazily sit in the heat
The Italians are too disorganized to even compete
No people on Earth have got the qualifications of the Englishman

The Japanese are competent, but much too petite
The Germans are competitors, but always bound to defeat
No people on Earth have got the fine reputation of the well-bred Englishman
No nation on Earth except a good old Anglo-Saxon Englishman

William Shakespeare, Henry Fielding and Byron
(He was an Englishman)
Frederick Handel, Walter Scott, the list goes on
(He was an Englishman)
Sir Isaac Newton, Samuel Pepys, Sir Francis Drake were all Englishmen
(Quite right, don't you think?)

The Dutch are much too occupied with their chocolates and plants
Those Russians always threaten to, but they obviously can't
It's plainly clear there's only one man here to take up that challenge
And that's a well-bred Englishman
Oh yes he is, a good old Anglo-Saxon well-bred Englishman

Chaucer, Charles Dickens and Wordsworth
(He was an Englishman)
The greatest literary nation on this Earth
(Englishman)
Now our reputation as explorers and conquerors is at stake
(An Englishman)
An Englishman must never hesitate
They can try, but they can never break
A single well-bred Anglo-Saxon Englishman

[From the musical, but not on the demo:]
Ah, but what about the Americans?
Americans are good chaps for sport
But there are qualities that they lack
They are keen, but somehow they lack the experience of Captain Cook
Now there's a man

No nation on Earth has the qualifications of the well-bred Englishman
No nation on Earth except the good old Anglo-Saxon Englishman

Horatio Nelson, Richard the Lionheart, Albert the Great
(He was an Englishman)
Lord Wellington at Waterloo, Henry the Eighth
(He was an Englishman)
Leave for the sea, it would be a contender
Except for the gender, though he had quite a masculine gate
(An Englishman)
An Englishman must never break
No, don't underestimate the good old well-bred Anglo-Saxon Englishman
A well-bred Anglo-Saxon Englishman

Ladies Of The Night

Don't be shy or sentimental, be a little continental
She's not bashful, she's no tease and once you start it's oh so easy
So enjoy yourself tonight, come and whet your appetite
And enjoy the city lights out with the ladies of the night

How coarse, how vulgar, I must be on my way
I'm much too occupied to stay out with the ladies of the night
(He's much too occupied to stay out with the ladies of the night)

I'm so warm and continental, don't be cold and regimental
My flesh is weak and very willing, let me show you something thrilling
We're the ladies of the night, vulgar, coarse and impolite
Serving gentry through the centuries, come and feed your appetite
So enjoy yourself tonight, come and whet your appetite
Come enjoy the city lights out with the ladies of the night

And when the early morning comes, I'll wait to face a lonely day
Nighttime's full of laugh and fun, but tomorrow you'll be far away
Nighttime's full of fantasy, but tomorrow you'll be gone from me
When night turns into day, in your reality I'll be just another memory

So tonight let's be together, live for love and life and pleasure
Feel each moment there to treasure, soon we will be gone forever
Have you no virility and no masculinity
We'll be [?] out with the ladies of the night

Tomorrow you'll be far away and I'll be just a memory
And another lady of the night will guide you through another day
Nighttime's full of fantasy, but tomorrow you'll be gone from me
When night turns into day, in your reality I'll be just another memory

But tonight we'll be together, live for love and life and pleasure
See each moment there to treasure, soon you will be gone forever
So enjoy yourself tonight, come and whet your appetite
Come enjoy the city lights up with the ladies of the night
Come enjoy the city lights up with the ladies of the night

For tomorrow you'll be gone and you'll be far away
And I'll be just another memory

On The Map

I said it was impossible
But now it's highly probable
That wretched man's unstoppable
Be blown, now fancy that

He's bypassed Scandinavia
And passing through Romania
Where on earth is Romania?
(It's somewhere on the map)

That man is simply quite beyond belief
At least he's one of us, that's a relief
(Blah blah blah blah blablablah
Blah blah blah blah blablablah
Blah blah blah blah blablablah
He's somewhere on the map

He's on the map (He's on the map)
He's on the map (He's on the map)
He's on the map (He's on the map)
Somewhere on the map

They thought it inconceivable
But now it's quite believable
That man seems quite unbeatable
He's somewhere on the map

He's on the map (On the map)
He's on the map (On the map)
He's on the map (On the map)
Somewhere on the map

They say he's got a crew in tow
Oh really? Anyone I know?
Darkies, frogs[?], well I'll be blown
If so, I'll eat my hat

He's on the map (He's on the map)
He's on the map (He's on the map)
He's on the map (He's on the map)
He's somewhere on the map

It Could Have Been Him

Once I had a man, he was a simple man
But he was honest through and through
He was rough and ready, but dignified
In fact he looked a lot like you

I'll search the seven seas to find him
Though temptations beckon, I will never break
Because until I know his fate
Like a nun I vow to sit and wait

He was strong, upright and true
And he was always faithful to me
And he knew how to treat a lady
And such a Romeo, that's why I miss him so

And in times, the hour of need
He'd always come and hold my hand
'Cause he knew how to please his lady
Hd'd just take me in his arms and say, "I understand"

He was a working man, he was an old-fashioned, strong
And dominating, lustful and he smelt like a man
But he respected me, never neglected me
He was always there to touch me, tease me, hold me, please me
Yes

He never failed to satisfy my every whim
'Cause he knew what his lady needed
And there's something about you that reminds me of him

Is that a wart on the side of your nose?
It reminds me of him, 'cause he had one of those
And those anxious wrinkles across your brow
And that masculine dimple on your chin
Oh, I just looked at you and it could have been him

It could have been him
It could have been him

Mongolia Song/No Surprises

When I was a child I tried to sail away to sea
The ocean symbolized adventure, romance and mystery
The sea holds all the secrets of man's mortality
Great men come and go, but the sea lives on eternally
Some men are shallow, others are deeper then the sea
But all men sometimes show emotion and feelings for humanity

But if he has a heart (So far everything has gone as planned)
He keeps it locked away (Everything's on schedule, no surprises)
Somehow I must get through (The ship's in order, everything's in place)
Somehow, some way (Full steam ahead, keep up the pace)

This man, he has no heart, can't understand him
It's so frustrating and creating[?], where do I start?
This man, he has no heart, no soul to penetrate
No sign of love, no sign of hate
My mind is all at sea, is there something that I've missed?
Am I looking for a man who can't exist?

And if he has a heart (So far everthing's on schedule, no surprises)
He keeps it locked away (The ship's in order, everything's in place)
Somehow I must get through (Full steam ahead, keep up the pace)
I will some day

When I was a child I dreamed man journeyed to the stars
I had such great imagination, infinity seemed not so far
Demo: But men of little vision only see reality
Musical: But am I losing touch with the man I used to be
So why is this man defeating me?

Help me understand (This journey round the world has no surprises)
I must get inside his mind (But this tarpaulin's burning my back-side)
Is there something that I missed (I must admit Mr. Fogg's a devious fellow)
Or am I going blind? (But to me he looks a little shifty-eyed)

He is a fake, he's nothing special
The man's a villain, he's just a criminal, he's not all he seems
And when I find a clue (80 days and still so much to do)
He'll have nowhere to run (I've been [?], but I'll break through)
The evidence will prove (Somehow I know my judgment's true)
He is the one

I wonder if the Egyptians knew or cared about the cost
A life is a life and a life costs nothing once that life is lost
I wonder who those poor devils were and when and how they died
It all seems so undignified

Did their poor regents realize what they were dying for?
A contribution to an England that they never saw
A monument should be erected with a tribute underneath
In Hyde Park or Hampstead Heath

Is this true love? (We're right on course, just as I planned)
Is this romance? (If I might say, a perfect piece of estimation)
Yet, I must stay true (By dawn we'll reach our destination)
To my old man, except for you (Don't tell the crew)

Looking for our man (Full steam ahead with no surprises)
Searching high and low (The ship's in order, everything's in place)
Over sea and land (By dawn we'll reach our destination)
The sky and earth below

I'll search the seven seas to find the truth
Before this journey's over, I'll find out

Is it all my self doubt? (I'll sniff him out) (The way you just grin)
Perhaps I'm written-out (I'll find some proof) (The way that you pass) (And lock him in jail)
Perhaps I'm drying up (The way you just look) (And throw away the key) (It could have been him)
Perhaps it's me?

Welcome To India

Mr. Fogg, welcome to India
The largest colony of the crown
Your reputation has preceded you
You have done the empire proud

Every patriotic Englishman
Will not forget this day
The empire's with you, Mr. Fogg
Three cheers, hip hip hurrah

Hip hip hurrah
Hip hip hurrah
He's a well-bred Englishman

How is good old Blighty?
I hear the weather's really fine
And if there's anything I can do to make your life more comfortable
The pleasure is all mine

'Cause he's an Englishman (he's an Englishman)
And Fogg is his name (and Fogg is his name)
And he's always on time
And he's always on top of his game

Just Passing Through

We've been here long enough
In all this filth and dust
And all this dirt and degradation
The squalor and the heat (a superficial state)
The beggars in the street (accepting what is fate)
And so uncivilized
I simply can't believe my eyes

Why is there such a fuss?
Why is there such a rush
With all this mystery around us?
I suspect you must be a man without feeling
Always on the move, always passing
The beggars in the street
The squalor and the heat
Because you're only passing through

I feel so moved by what I see
I feel a light inside of me
I feel a sudden revelation
Is it the sun, is it the heat?
I feel I'm waking from a sleep
The blood that's flowing through my veins
Reacts to some great ugly[?] change
And now when we leave India
Our world will never be the same

After this, life would have found a new meaning
Something wondrous, something new
Instead of merely passing
The beggars in the street (a superficial state)
The poverty and heat (accepting what is fate)
Because you're only passing through

The beggars in the street
The squalor and the heat
Nothing's affecting you
Because we're only passing through

I suspect you only look without seeing
Which is convenient to do
When you're only passing
The beggars in the street (the beggars in the street)
The squalor and the heat (the squalor and the heat)
Because you're only passing through

Always such a fuss
Always in a rush
With all this mystery around us
For I suspect you must be a man without feeling
Always on the move and always passing
The beggars in the street
The squalor and the heat
Because you're only passing through

80 Days

In 80 days I am condemned to write this book
But still so much is missing, I have a thread but still no hook
Perhaps I'll find a way inside my mind
Complete my book in 80 days

In 80 days to circumnavigate this plan
I'll do my duty as a noble Englishman
For queen and country I will do what must be done
80 days to save my honour and a wager to be won

In 80 days I will restore my shattered pride
And fiddle the expenses, make some money on the side
Redeem my reputation, perhaps a knighthood will ensue
At least I'll save my job, restore my pension when it's due
In 80 days

Time has no meaning in this void, I lost a husband and a home
I bore a child, betrayed my faith
I see a future and a past that has no face. What's 80 days?
Time has no meaning in a spirit floating endlessly in space
80 days

80 days to find a long lost husband that is mine
With a little slap and tickle just to pass the time
And see the world, a chance that I might never have again
And help my son, so his quest is not totally in vain
For 80 days
80 days

I'll wager he won't do it. There's no way it can be done
We always back a winner and there's no way that he's one
He'll disappoint the nation, he'll fall flat on his face
What a just humiliation, he'll never stand the pace
For 80 days

In 80 days we can do it
80 Days
In 80 days we can do it

Will I reach my goal in 80 days?
(80 seconds, 80 minutes, 80 hours)
Will I write my book in 80 days?
Will I have a job in 80 days?
A wager to be won in 80 days
Will I find my man?
(80 months, 80 years, 80 decades, 80 days)
Will I get promoted?
A deadline to be met in 80 days
Perhaps another holiday?
Will I put the criminal in jail?
[?] my page in 80 days

Will I reach my goal in 80 days?

In 80 days we can do it
80 days
In 80 days we can do it

Members Of The Club

I can deal with the national crisis, economic worry and strife
Though my mind is racked with indecision
Pressures from the radicals, pressures from the right
And appear to appease my critics, yet retain my party line
I can have it both ways at the very same time
I'm the man in the middle, I can stem the tide
And keep the lower classes satisfied
And still make the wealthy think I'm on their side
In government it's always compromise
To give in and somehow seem dignified

I can say "yes" while appearing to say "no"
Seem radical, yet maintain the status quo
I can defer decisions, manipulate and bluff
But I can't fool the members of the club

I'll face the press, I'll face the toughest militants
But then I'll face the members of the club (we're the members of the club)
I'll face Her Grace, Her Majesty will understand
But I'll be in disgrace with the members of the club (we're the members of the club)
Will my decision be accepted by the club? (we're the members of the club)
Will I still be well-respected by the club? (we're the members of the club)
Or will I bear the front of endless ridicule?
What is the right and proper thing to do?

I can delegate and engage the opposition
In a sane debate, but not the members of the club (we're the members of the club)
I can satisfy demands of queen and country
But I can't get by the members of the club (we're the members of the club)
I can't arrest a member of the club (we're the members of the club)
Except with the permission of the club (we're the members of the club)
If I do there will be questions at the club
So I must comply to satisfy the club

So hesitate and contemplate a little more
For heaven's sake, he's a member of the club
But the ultimate decision rests with you
But if you're wrong, your membership must be reviewed
And then dire consequences might ensue
So you must find the right and proper thing to do

Conspiracy

From the gutter to the highest steeple in the land
Corruption, like a plague, is bearing down on every man
From the wealth of high society to the lowliest of slums
The vile stench of evil is corrupting everyone
The very fabric of our nation is infested by deceits
And the criminals are plotting my demise and my defeat

My life is a crusade for law and order
It's my quest to see that justice will be done
But so much is undetected 'cause society is infected
By the lies and the hypocrisy, conspiracy, conspiracy
When evil rears its ugly head, the devil has its day
And everyone's a suspect and crime must never pay
Conspiracy, conspiracy
We all smell a conspiracy

People are conspiring all around me (we know the feeling)
I have difficulty knowing who to trust (conspiracy)
Even the so-called aristocracy is riddled with conspiracy
Corruption and hypocrisy, conspiracy, conspiracy
And Satan smiles as man becomes his slave
With corruption and conspiracy, I'll fight it to my grave
And when the worms devour my flesh, they'll hear me say
"It was all a conspiracy 'cause I ended up this way"
Conspiracy, conspiracy, we all smell a conspiracy

One crime leads to another, when you're working undercover
Protecting queen and country is my task (conspiracy)
But where there's muck there's money and no man's above suspicion
Money knows no scruples and no class
And the perverted threat of corruption never ends
They cover up some hypocrisy, conspiracy, conspiracy

In the corridors of power and high places (conspiracy)
In parliament and in the public schools (conspiracy)
They're preaching law and order, but they're breaking all the rules
And criminals are running free, conspiracy, conspiracy
I love to see those villains cringe when they know I'm on the trail
Because I always get my man and my system never fails
And then they start to panic and they make just one mistake
Then under cross-examination eventually they break

My theory is that man's created evil (created evil)
Well, I'll illuminate the clues and solve the case (conspiracy)
As long as God is on my side I will never end this chase
Until I'm staring Heaven in the face
And one Phileas Fogg is the devil incarnate
And all his fancy trickery, cover ups and treachery
Is a trail of foul conspiracy that will lead me to my fate

Tell Her, Tell Him

Tell her she is my guest, but my patience is waning
Tell him how dare he protest, he's the one who's complaining
Tell her be quiet and speak only when asked
Tell him I chose to ignore his remarks
Tell her she'll travel steerage (We'll travel first class)
If she doesn't tow the line (With every comfort you ask)
Tell her I always take meals alone
And always at regular times (Tell him my [?])
Tell him his presence offends me (She's allergic to cigars)
Tell him I'd rather starve
I'd rather sleep with the rats in my cabin in steerage
Than travel with him in first class
Tell her she's not obliged to be grateful (Tell him she is)
She [?] (full of hate)
Tell her that travel will broaden her mind
The same as it's narrowed his
Tell him he is pitiful (She admires you)
And I'm pleased to reciprocate (Such flattery too much and too late)
She is [?] (She is bored), she is [?]
Tell him spending a minute with him is eternal damnation
(She treasures every moment in your presence)
Another tedious moment with him, I'll explode with frustration
(She is overwhelmed to be in the same room with you)
Telling him, telling her, what a strange situation
Telling her, telling him, but avoid confrontation
With cooperation, collaboration
For me this journey around the world
Cooperation, collaboration around the world

Tell him that the days spent on this boat
Were ten days I will always detest (The journey was a sheer delight)
Tell her I'm tired of her sniveling ways
Tell her I couldn't care less (He says to travel with you is delightful)
Tell him good riddance, I'm glad he is gone
Tell her now we've unloaded the baggage, we can move on
He says farewell, she says good bye
She thanks him for all of his hospitality
He is so moved by her gratitude
He finds it impossible to speak
Tell him, tell her, tell him, tell her
Tell him, tell her, tell him, tell her
Collaboration around the world

Tell him three more days with him is more than I can swallow (She's feeling ill)
And tell her to stay here and rot away in Singapore (I'll be in Cairo)
Tell her her shamming(?) is slowing me down (He's concerned)
Tell her that I have a world to go around
Tell him he makes me depressed (Tell her I'm not impressed)
My death will be on his conscious (Then I will gladly confess)
Tell them stop this constant heartache
It will spoil my holiday
Cooperation, collaboration
We mustn't wait another day

Someone tell me where did I go wrong
I was in charge of this story 'till she came along
Telling him, telling her
We're terrified just in case I might say something wrong

Tell him I'll celebrate when he's gone (She'll be sad when you're gone)
Tell her her parting will suit me (And he will pursue)
Tell him he has no right to abandon me here
Tell him I think it my duty
Telling her, telling him, what a strange situation
Telling her, telling him, but avoid confrontation
Telling him, telling her, telling him
Telling him, telling her, telling him
But who's telling me I'm going round the world without a story
The time racing by when I'm wasting time
Telling him, telling her
Cooperation (tell him, tell her, tell him, tell her)
Collaboration (tell him, tell her, tell him, tell her)
Consideration (tell him, tell her) around the world
Cooperation, collaboration, consideration around the world
