"THE KINKS"

Beautiful Delilah

Beautiful delilah, sweet as apple pie
Always gets a second look from fellas passing by
Every time you see her, she's with a different guy
Beautiful delilah, that's the reason why

Rebecca don't allow me fool around with you
You are so tantalizing, you just can't be true

Beautiful delilah, dressed in the latest styles
Swinging like a pendulum, walking down the aisle
Sees so many guys, speaks so low and mild
One day she will marry, settle down, after a while

Rebecca don't allow me, fool around with you
You are so tantalizing, you just can't be true

Beautiful delilah, bathing in the sun
Audience of 17, and noticed not a one
Local casanova who wouldn't be outdone
Let her steal his heart away, she break it just for fun

Rebecca don't allow me, fool around with you
You are so tantalizing, you just can't be true

So Mystifying

You know you're so mystifying
You know you're so mystifying

Well, help me, baby, get a message through
You leave my mouth wide open with the things that you do
First you say you love me, then you say that we're through
You know you're so mystifying, can't believe it's true

You know you're so mystifying
You know you're so mystifying

You know that every time I see you walking down the street
You got a mystifying wiggle from your head to your feet
You got a shock wave pulsating rhythm through my brain
You know you're so mystifying, you just ain't the same

You know you're so mystifying
You know you're so mystifying

You know you're so mystifying
You know you're so mystifying

Well, mystify me by the way that you walk
You even mystify me by the way you talk
Go from one day to the next if you'll be mine
Oh, little woman, you are so mystifying

You know you're so mystifying
You know you're so mystifying
You know you're so mystifying

Just Can't Go to Sleep

Every night I just can't go sleep
Every night I have to count sheep
Every night I just can't go sleep, uh huh
Without you, without you
I just can't go to sleep

Every night I feel so lonely
Longing for you, one and only
Every night I just can't go sleep, uh huh
Without you, without you

To sleep

Every day you look my way,
And I want to hold you
But when nighttime comes
You're not around for me to love

Every night I just can't go sleep
Every night I have to count sheep
Every night I just can't go sleep, uh huh
Without you, without you
I just can't go to sleep
(no, no, no, no, no)
Yeah, I just can't go to sleep, now
(no, no, no, no, no)
Oh, I just can't go to sleep

Well I took my baby home
She said don't you leave me alone
She kissed me on the cheek and I moaned
I said I wo-wo-wo-wo-won't

Well, she said, baby I know what's best
She said I could do with a rest[? ]
Then she put her hand on my chest
I said I wo-wo-wo-wo-won't

She had some pile-drivin' kisses
They really knocked me out
They knocked me oh-oh-over
She had a hug like a vice
She squeezes once or twice and I moan

I'm a Lover Not a Fighter

Well I met a pretty girl, as pretty as can be
I thought she was my baby till she introduced to me
A great big tall fella, about six foot tall
I shivered and I shook, couldn't do any more

'cause I'm a lover not a fighter
Yes, I'm a lover not a fighter
Yes, I'm a lover not a fighter
And I'm really built for speed
Built for speed

Revenge

Instrumental

Too Much Monkey Business

Running to and fro, hard working at the mill,
Never failed at the mill, there come a rotten bill.
Too much monkey business, too much monkey business,
Too much monkey business for me to be involved with you.

Salesman talkin? to me tryin? to run me up a creek,
Says you can buy it, go on try it, you can pay me next week.
Too much monkey business, too much monkey business,
Too much monkey business for me to be involved with you.

Blonde hair, good-looking, trying to get into get me married
Get a home, settle down by the book.
Too much monkey business, too much monkey business
Too much monkey business for me to be involved with you.

Same thing every day, getting up, going to school,
No need for me complaining, my objection?s overruled.
Too much monkey business, too much monkey business,
Too much monkey business for me to be involved with you.
Oh!

Pay-phone, something?s wrong, dime gone, will mail,
Oughta sue the operator for telling me a tale.
Too much monkey business, too much monkey business,
Too much monkey business for me to be involved with you.

Been to yokohama, baby, fighting in the war,
Army bunk, army chow, army clothes, army car.
Too much monkey business, too much monkey business,
Too much monkey business for me to be involved with you.

Working in the filling station, too many checks,
Wipe the windows, check the oil, check the tires, dollar gas?
Too much monkey business, too much monkey business
Too much monkey business for me to be involved with you.
