Tracklist

Wasted Days and Wasted Nights

length: 2:45
writer: Wayne Duncan, Freddy Fender

Wasted days and wasted nights,
I have left for you behind
For you don't belong to me,
Your heart belongs to someone else.

Why should I keep loving you,
When I know that you're not true?
And why should I call your name,
When you're to blame
For making me blue?

Don't you remember the day,
That you went away and left me?
I was so lonely,
Prayed for you only,
My love.

Why should I keep loving you,
When I know that you're not true?
And why should I call your name,
When you're to blame
For making me blue?

Don't you remember the day,
That you went away and left me?
I was so lonely,
Prayed for you only,
My love.

Wasted days and wasted nights,
I have left for you behind
For you don't belong to me,
Your heart belongs to someone else.

Why should I keep loving you,
When I know that you're not true?
And why should I call your name,
When you're to blame
For making me blue?

It's All in the Game

length: 2:56
Many a tear has to fall
But It's All In The Game
All in the wonderful game
That we know as love
You have words with him
And your future's looking dim
But these things your hearts can rise above
Once in a while he won't call
But It's All In The Game
Soon he'll be there at your side

With a sweet refrain
And he'll kiss your lips
And caress your waking fingertips
And your hearts will fly away
And he'll kiss your lips
And caress your waking fingertips
And your hearts will fly away
And your hearts will fly away
And your hearts will fly…
And your hearts will fly…

Since I Met You Baby

length: 3:12
Since I met you baby my whole life has changed
Since I met you baby my whole life has changed
And everybody tells me that I am not the same

I don't need nobody to tell my troubles to
I don't need nobody to tell my troubles to
Cause since I met you baby all I need is you

Since I met you baby I'm a happy man
Since I met you baby I'm a happy man
I'm gonna try to please you in every way I can

I Can't Stop Loving You

length: 3:04
I can't stop loving you
So I've made up my mind
To live in memory
Of such an old lonesome time

I can't stop wanting you
It's useless to say
So I'll just live my life
In dreams of yesterday

Those happy happy hours
That we once knew
Though long ago
They still make me blue

They say that time
Heals a broken heart
But time stood still
Since we've been apart

I can't stop loving you
So I've made up my mind
To live in memory
Of such an old lonesome time

I can't stop wanting you
It's useless to say
So I'll just live my life
In dreams of yesterday

Before the Next Teardrop Falls

length: 2:35
writer: Vivian Keith, Ben Peters
If he brings you happiness

Then I wish you all the best

It's your happiness that matters most of all

But if he ever breaks your heart

If the teardrops ever start

I'll be there before the next teardrop falls


Si te quire de verdad

Y te da felicidad

Te deseo lo mas bueno pa' los dos

Pero si te hare llorar

A mi me puedes hablar

Y estare contigo cuando triste estas


I'll be there anytime

You need me by your side

To drive away every teardrop that you cried


And if he ever leaves you blue

Just remember, I love you

And I'll be there before the next teardrop falls

And I'll be there before the next teardrop falls

Tell It Like It Is

length: 3:02
If you want something to play with
Go and find yourself a toy
Baby my time is too expensive
And I'm not a little boy
If you are serious
Don't play with my heart
It makes me furious
But if you want me to love you
Then a baby I will, girl you know that I will
Tell it like it is

Don't be ashamed to let your conscience be your guide
But I know deep down inside me
I believe you love me, forget your foolish pride
Life is too short to have sorrow
You may be here today and gone tomorrow
You might as well get what you want
So go on and live, baby go on and live

Tell it like it is
I'm nothing to play with
Go and find yourself a toy

But I
Tell it like it is
My time is too expensive and I'm not your little boy

Secret Love

length: 3:46
Once I had secret love
That lived within this part of me
All too soon my secret love
Became impassioned to be free
So I told a friendly star
The way that dreamers often do
Just I wonder of your eyes
And why I'm so in love with you

Now shout this highest hill
Even told the golden best of you
And now my heart's an open door
And my secret love is no secret anymore
Ai amor mon me le quer morir
Que non miras lo que pasa en mi
Ven y da-me tu calor
Que mi corazon se muere sin tu amor
And my secret love is nno secret anymore

You'll Lose a Good Thing

performer: Freddy Fender
background vocals: The Poppies
composer: Barbara Lynn
lyricist: Barbara Lynn
Well if you lose me, oh yes
You'll lose a good thing
Well if you lose me, oh yes
You'll lose a good thing

You know I love you girl
But I want you to do right
If you would only straighten up
We'd have a good life
And if you don't believe me, oh yes
You'll lose a good thing

Well if you lose me, oh yes
You'll lose a good thing
You do all your parading
With every guy in town
I try to find you, woman
And you're nowhere to be found

But if you lose me, oh yes
You'll lose a good thing
Well if you lose me, oh yes
You'll lose a good thing

You know I love you woman
I can't tell you anymore
If you don't straighten up
I'm gonna walk right out of that door

And if you don't believe me, oh yes
You'll lose a good thing, oh yes
You'll lose a good thing, oh yes, oh yes
You'll lose a good thing, don't you know

Vaya Con Dios

length: 2:48
Now the hacienda's dark, the town is sleeping;
Now the time has come to part, the time for weeping.
Vaya con Dios my darling,
May God be with you my love.

Wherever you may be, I'll be beside you,
Although you're many million dreams away.
Each night I'll say a pray'r, a pray'r to guide you
To hasten ev'ry lonely hour of ev'ry lonely day.

Now the dawn is breaking through a gray tomorrow,
But the memories we share are there to borrow.
Vaya con Dios, my darling:
May God be with you my love.

Now the village mission bells are softly ringing,
If you listen with your heart you'll hear them singing,
Vaya con Dios my darling,
May God be with you my love.

Wherever you may be I'll be beside you,
Although you're many million dreams away,
Each night I'll say a pray'r, a pray'r to guide you
To hasten ev'ry lonely hour of ev'ry lonely day.

Now the dawn is breaking through a gray tomorrow,
But the memories we share are there to borrow,
Vaya con Dios, my darling!
Vaya con Dios, my love.
