You are a very noble man
Descended from a noble clan
You live by the rules of your family
You can't marry me
For I am just a humble girl
Not born to see the great big world
Our love can't be more than a secret love
For no one to see
Caballero, caballero
You're a famous man in town
I must wait out of sight
Till you kiss me tonight
Caballero, caballero
So delightful, so delightful
Caballero, caballero
If you ever let me down
I'll be crying and crying all night
But I'll be gone
Just like the evening sun
In dreams I'm rich and you are poor
And I am looking for amor
I pick you up in a street cafe
Where you spend your days
We're driving to my grand hotel
My heart's aflame, you're looking swell
I won't set you free for you love must be
Only for me
Caballero, caballero
You're a famous man in town
I must wait out of sight
Till you kiss me tonight
Caballero, caballero
So delightful, so delightful
Caballero, caballero
If you ever let me down
I'll be crying and crying all night
But I'll be gone
Just like the evening sun
Caballero
Caballero, caballero
You're a famous man in town
I must wait out of sight
Till you kiss me tonight
Caballero, caballero
So delightful, so delightful
Caballero, caballero
If you ever let me down
I'll be crying and crying all night
But I'll be gone
Just like the evening sun

You and I fell in love
It was clear to me
All my life there would only be
Only be you
Me and you
Every kiss you gave me was true
You were holding me close night and day
But now you are so far away

Why do you ride that high horse
Come on down to where you belong
Why do you ride that high horse
One day it will go wrong
Why do you ride that high horse
Come on down to where you belong
Why do you ride that high horse
My love for you is strong
But don't let me wait too long

Try to be the man
Who once fell in love with me
Say again as you used to do:
"Baby, I need you"
But it seems
You were holding me close night and day
But now you are far away

Why do you ride that high horse
Come on down to where you belong
Why do you ride that high horse
One day it will go wrong
Why do you ride that high horse
Come on down to where you belong
Why do you ride that high horse
My love for you is strong
But don't let me wait too long

Why do you ride that high horse
Come on down to where you belong
Why do you ride that high horse
One day it will go wrong
Why do you ride that high horse
Come on down to where you belong
Why do you ride that high horse
My love for you is strong

Why do you ride that high horse
Come on down to where you belong
Why do you ride that high horse
One day it will go wrong
Why do you ride that high horse
Come on down to where you belong
Why do you ride that high horse
My love for you is strong

He's always telling stories
That's how he got his name - big Ballyhoo.
It's very very boring

It's ev'ry day the same - big Ballyhoo.
Whatever he is saying
He is telling a lie
But he tells you why it's true.
He is a tall story teller

He says that Rockefeller
Became a millionaire
'cause he gave him the tips
And he taught him the tricks.
He is a tall story teller -
Why do I love this feller?

I really don't now why
But I know it's true
That he loves me too
And that is not a lie.
So we are goin' to marry
Because I love this man - big Ballyhoo.
I said you're very caring
But you must understand - big Ballyhoo.
Be sure if you ever gonna tell me a lie
I'm saying good bye to you.
He is a tall story teller
. . .
Ballyhoo Ballyhoo - yes I love him
yes I do.
Ballyhoo Ballyhoo - and I know he loves me too.
He is a tall story teller
. . .

Love, I opened my door
Though I had never seen you before
I fell for all your charms
And you took me in your arms

It was love at first sight
I didn't care about wrong or right
I did not know you name
But I kissed you all the same

Touch and go
If you can't stay I let you go
But stay away 'cause to and for
Is not my style you know
Touch and go
My lonely heart was all aglow
But now it's over, bye bye love
I'll miss you but I know
That it was touch and go

Love you make a mistake
If you believe my heart's gonna break
I cry, of course I cry
I don't have to tell you why

'Cause it will never be
The way you talked about you and me
I don't say you're to blame
But I tell you all the same

Touch and go
If you can't stay I let you go
But stay away 'cause to and for
Is not my style you know
Touch and go
My lonely heart was all aglow
But now it's over, bye bye love
I'll miss you but I know
That it was touch and go

Don't you cry
Don't you cry
You will see as time goes by
There will be a blue and sunny sky

Touch and go
If you can't stay I let you go
But stay away 'cause to and for
Is not my style you know
Touch and go
My lonely heart was all aglow
But now it's over, bye bye love
I'll miss you but I know
That it was touch and go

Touch and go
If you can't stay I let you go
But stay away 'cause to and for
Is not my style you know
Touch and go
My lonely heart was all aglow
But now it's over, bye bye love
I'll miss you but I know
That it was touch and go

My seafaring man
He called me tonight
To say, "Please be waiting
Till I hold you tight"
His voice was not clear
But he said it might
Be due to long distance
He loved me alright

Oh, don't wait for a sailor
Whatever he'll say
You'll find all his phrases
In any old play
Oh, don't wait for a sailor
On the ocean of life
Be gladly his lover
But never his wife

I think he is drinking
He calls from a bar
Tonight from an island
That's named Zanzibar
He's sailing in August
Comes home in July
May be Christmas evening
For one kiss goodnight

Oh, don't wait for a sailor
Whatever he'll say
You'll find all his phrases
In any old play
Oh, don't wait for a sailor
On the ocean of life
Be gladly his lover
But never his wife

If he says one day:
"I'm coming home to stay"
Don't you worry
He's going back tu the sea
(Don't you warry)
(He's going back)

Oh, don't wait for a sailor
Whatever he'll say
You'll find all his phrases
In any old play
Oh, don't wait for a sailor
On the ocean of life
Be gladly his lover
But never his wife

Oh, don't wait for a sailor
Whatever he'll say
You'll find all his phrases
In any old play
Oh, don't wait for a sailor
On the ocean of life
Be gladly his lover
But never his wife

And love is such a wonderful game
The first time I play there's the jackpot
The best you can get, the jackpot
Baby, honey, that's what you are to me

It's so exciting, it takes the cake
Rien ne va plus and your heart's at stake
Baby, baby, we will play it every day
I lose my heart but I'm not gonna cry
Tomorrow we'll give it another try
Baby, baby, we will play it everyday
Baby, baby, play

And love is such a wonderful game

Look alive

To give our hearts
A chance to find another start
Look alive
So I came back today
To tell you, Jay
That I would stay forever if I may
Because I love you, Jay

Hey look alive
I'm staying forevermore
Hey look alive
So what are you waiting for?
Why aren't you kissing me, kissing me
Look alive

I'm coming home to stay forever
Don't you understand?
Look alive

I've been away too long
And that was wrong
But still my love for you is strong
Look alililililive
You'll be the only man, so if you can
Forget that I have ever been away
Because you love me. Jay

Never fall in love on a train
For the train's moving on
And your lover has gone
Never fall in love on a plane
It will come to an end
For a plane has to land

You think it's love for evermore
The one you have been waiting for?

Only a flash in the pan
Easy come and easy go
Only a flash in the pan
Love is like a one night show
Only a flash in the pan
Easy come and easy go
Only a flash in the pan
Love is like a one night show
When there's love in your eyes
You should better look twice

Never fall in love in the park
With a wonderful guy
Who will always deny
He has ever seen the spark
Not to mention the girl
Whom he promised the world

You think it's love for evermore
The one you have been waiting for?

Only a flash in the pan
Easy come and easy go
Only a flash in the pan
Love is like a one night show
Only a flash in the pan
Easy come and easy go
Only a flash in the pan
Love is like a one night show
When there's love in your eyes
You should better look twice

Only a flash in the pan
Easy come and easy go
Only a flash in the pan
Love is like a one night show
Only a flash in the pan
Easy come and easy go
Only a flash in the pan
Love is like a one night show
When there's love in your eyes
You should better look twice

You should better look twice
When there's love in your eyes

You should better look twice
When there's love in your eyes

Folks like you and me (You and me)
Dance themselves into an ecstasy, ecstasy

* Come on to the fool's paradise
I tell you only you won't be lonely
Night and day the music plays
You cannot hear what people say
Fool's paradise
A little hazy, a little crazy
Take my advice
Come to fool's paradise

Don't fool away a lovely day

Tonight we will do
What everyone should do
Play the fool because we're in the mood
Let's break away (Break away)
Who cares what people say (People say)
Baby love, let's do it right away, right away

* (repeat)

Don't fool away alovely day
I like a fool who plays it cool
