She said I'm sorry baby I'm leaving you tonight
I found someone new he's waitin' in the car outside
Ah honey how could you do it
We swore each other everlasting love
She said well yeah I know but when
We did - there was one thing we weren't
Really thinking of and that's money -

Money changes everything
Money, money changes everything
We think we know what we're doin'
That don't mean a thing
It's all in the past now
Money changes everything

They shake your hand and they smile
And they buy you a drink
They say we'll be your friends
We'll stick with you till the end
Ah but everybody's only
Looking out for themselves
And you say well who can you trust
I'll tell you it's just
Nobody else's money -

Money changes everything
Money changes everything
We think we know what we're doin
We don't pull the strings
It's all in the past now
Money changes everything

Money changes everything
Money changes everything
We think we know what we're doing
We don't know a thing
It's all in the past now

Money changes everything
Money changes everything
Money changes everything

I come home in the morning light
My mother says when you gonna live your life right
Oh mother dear we're not the fortunate ones
And girls they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have fun

The phone rings in the middle of the night
My father yells what you gonna do with your life
Oh daddy dear you know you're still number one
But girls they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have

That's all they really want
Some fun
When the working day is done
Girls, they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have fun

Some boys take a beautiful girl
And hide her away from the rest of the world
I want to be the one to walk in the sun
Oh girls they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have

That's all they really want
Some fun
When the working day is done
Girls, they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have fun,
They want to have fun,
They want to have fun

When you were mine
I gave you all of my money
Time after time
You done me wrong
'Cause, just like a train
You let all my friends come over and eat
And you were so strange
You didn't have the decency to change the sheets
Oh girl, when you were mine
I use to let you wear all my clothes
You were so fine
Maybe that's the reason that it hurt me so
I know, that you're goin with another guy
But I don't care, 'cause I love you baby that's no lie
Love you more mine than I did when you were mine
When you were mine
You were kindasorta my best friend
So I was blind
I let you fool around
I never cared
I never was the kind to make a fuss
When he was there
Sleepin in between the two of us
I know, that you're goin with another guy
But I don't care, 'cause I love you baby that's no lie
Love you more than I did when you were mine
When you were mine
You were all I ever wanted to do
Now I spend my time
Following him whenever he's with you
I know that you're goin with another guy
But I don't care, 'cause I love you baby that's no lie
Love you more than I did when you were mine

Lying in my bed I hear the clock tick,
And think of you
Caught up in circles confusion--
Is nothing new
Flashback--warm nights--
Almost left behind
Suitcases of memories,
Time after--

Sometimes you picture me--
I'm walking too far ahead
You're calling to me, I can't hear
What you've said--
Then you say--go slow--
I fall behind--
The second hand unwinds

[Chorus:]
If you're lost you can look--and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you--I'll be waiting
Time after time

After my picture fades and darkness has
Turned to gray
Watching through windows--you're wondering
If I'm OK
Secrets stolen from deep inside
The drum beats out of time--

[Chorus:]

You said go slow--
I fall behind
The second hand unwinds--

[Chorus:]

Time after time...
Time after time...
Time after time...
Time after time...

We-hell- I see them every night in tight blue jeans
In the pages of a blue boy magazine
Hey I've been thinking of a new sensation
I'm picking up - good vibration -
Oop - she bop -

Do I want to go out with a lion's roar
Huh, yea, I want to go south n get me some more
Hey, they say that a stitch in time saves nine
They say I better stop - or I'll go blind
Oop - she bop -

She bop - he bop - a - we bop
I bop - you bop - a - they bop
Be bop - be bop - a - lu - she bop,
I hope He will understand
She bop - he bop - a - we bop
I bop - you bop - a - they bop
Be bop - be bop - a - lu - she bop
Oo - oo - she - do - she bop - she bop

(whistle along here...)

Hey, hey - they say I better get a chaperone
Because I can't stop messin' with the danger zone
No, I won't worry, and I won't fret -
Ain't no law against it yet.
Oop - she bop - she bop -

She bop - he bop - we bop.....

All through the night
I'll be awake and I'll be with you
All through the night
This precious time when time is new
Oh, all through the night today
Knowing that we feel the same without saying

We have no past we won't reach back
Keep with me forward all through the night
And once we start the meter clicks
And it goes running all through the night
Until it ends there is no end

All through the night
stray cat is crying so stray cat sings back
All through the night
They have forgotten what by day they lack
Oh under those white street lamps
There is a little chance they may see

We have no past we won't reach back
Keep with me forward all through the night
And once we start the meter clicks
And it goes running all through the night
Until it ends there is no end

Oh the sleep in your eyes is enough
Let me be there let me stay there awhile
We have no past we won't reach back
Keep with me forward all through the night
And once we start the meter clicks
And it goes running all through the night
Until it ends there is no end
Keep with me forward all through the night
And once we start the meter clicks
And it goes running all through the night
Until it ends there is no end

You're sorry now
And you'll change some how--
And I am what you need to get out, but--
I don't want to be
I don't want to be
I don't want to be a witness

'Cause I'm crawling back
I'm searchin the right track--
I'm standin--at last I'm sure
I don't want to be
I don't want to be
I don't want to be a witness
No, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh--witness
No, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh--witness

Jailbird chained to walk
How you used to--talk, talk, talk--
But the melody--none at all my love--
And I don't want to be
I don't want to be
I don't want to be a witness
I don't want to be
No I don't...
Oh, oh, oh, oh...witness--witness--
Witness--witness--

Went down to the local gypsy
And I handed her the same line--
'You know what I want from you
So honey won't ya gimme number nine'
'Cause you know lately I ain't feelin so great--
Last time she gave me love potion number eight
And you know pretty baby how I think you're pretty smart
But one sip from this bottle and I'll tear you all apart--

The gypsy told me that the first thing
That would happen you get dizzy
Second thing you better make sure
That your boyfriend isn't busy
'Cause you won't want to eat
And you won't want to drink
You won't want to talk
And you won't want to think
My mother used to tell me not to kiss on this first date
This time when I see you, you know I ain't gonna wait!

I'll kiss you
Gonna corner you and not let you go
I'll kiss you
Don't tell me nothing--I--I--don't want to know
And twidely--dee--and twidely--dumb
I'll kiss you, I'll kiss you, I'll kiss you

Hopped into a taxi, and I told the driver
Got to get me cross town
Killed the bottle, started seeing double
When the driver turned around
And though I was a failure with love potion number eight
Number nine was different and the hour's getting late
Now I'm standing on the corner
Everyone looks great to me
And if you come and get me take me where I want to be--

I'll kiss you...
I'll kiss you
I'll kiss you

You talk of sweeties bashful sweeties
I've got one of those
Oh he's handsome as can be
But he worries me

He goes to college
And gathers knowledge
Oo, what that boy knows
He's up in his Latin and Greek
But in his chicin' he's weak cause,
When I want some lovin'
And I gotta have some lovin'
He says please stop it please

Through the burning sun
And the driving rain
Over the sea
And across the plain
Oh I'll ask you once
And I'll ask you again
Won't you be my love
Won't you be my friend

Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Well the lights are low
And the hour is late
Don't you want me baby
Through your garden gate
Don't you feel it coming
And it feels so strong
I will never ever ever
Ever do you wrong

Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Chorus:
Now the mountain is high
And the river is deep
We always knew
And we hold the key
Violets blue
Roses red
Love you baby
Till I'm dead

Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
