PASSAGE: lyrics
B'WANA SHE NO HOME
 

Don't you ever invite your boyfriend here
I like to be here alone
You just answer the door and feed the deer
And fight the telephone
Got to learn these words and I know you will
Or I'll send you right back to Guayaquil
Say b'wana she no home, say b'wana she no home
Say'b'wana she no home, say b'wana she no home
Got to peel your eyes for the heat my dear
You got to froth and foam
Got to send away the mad puppeteer
Who seems to think this is home
I want you to speak the English right
I want you to smile and be polite
Say b'wana she no home, say b'wana she no home
Say b'wana she no home, say b'wana she no home
I don't care if you drive my 350 honey
Don't let'em steal my chrome
I don't care if you spend all my money honey
Long as you leave me alone
I just want you to try and remember one thing
If somebody knocks or the telephone rings
Say b'wana she no home, say b'wana she no home
Say b'wana she no hnme, say b'wana she no home
 
ALL YOU GET FROM LOVE IS A LOVE SONG
 
Like sailin' on a sailin' ship to nowhere
Love took over my heart like an ocean breeze
As seagulls fly I knew that I was losin'
Love was washed away with the driftin' tide
Oh it's a dirty old shame
When all you get from love is a love song
That's got you layin' up nights just waitin'
for the music to start
It's such a dirty old shame when you got to
take the blame for a love song
Because the best love songs are written
with a broken heart
And now the tears in my eyes are ever blinding
The future that lies before me I cannot see
Although tomorrow I know the sun is rising
Lighting up the world for everyone, but not for me
(Repeat Chorus)
 
I JUST FALL IN LOVE AGAIN
 
Dreamin', I must be dreamin'
Or am I really lyin' here with you
Baby, you take me in your arms
And though I'm wide awake
I know my dream is comin' true
And, oh, I just fall in love again
Just one touch and then it happens every time
And there I go I just fall in love again,
and when I do
Can't help myself, I fall in love with you
Magic, it must be magic
The way I hold you and the night just
seems to fly
Easy, for you to take me to a star
Heaven is that moment when I look into your eyes
 
SWEET, SWEET SMILE
 
You're always in my heart
From early in the mornin' til it's dark
I gotta see your sweet , sweet smile every day
When I wake up in the mornin'
And I see you there
I always whisper a little prayer
I gotta see your sweet , sweet smile every day
** I gotta know that you love me
And that you want me
And that you'll always be there
I've gotta know that you care
## And I gotta feel your arms around me
And that you need me
And that you'll always be there
I've gotta know that you care
If my times are bringin' me down
You're the only one that I want around
I gotta see your sweet , sweet smile every day
And if I'll all strung out
You're the only one who can straighten me out
I gotta see your sweet , sweet smile every day
Repeat **
Repeat ##
Repeat **
Repeat ##
Yoy're always in my heart
From early in the mornin' til it's dark
I gotta see your sweet , sweet smile every day
I gotta see your sweet , sweet smile every day
I gotta see your sweet , sweet smile every day
 
TWO SIDES
 
Well, there's two sides, to every situation
Yes, there's two sides, two interpretations
A laugh is a cry, hello means goodbye
You're sayin' something baby, I don't wanna buy
Well, there's two sides to every creation
You and me babe, we're no revelation
Well there's darkness in our light, and there's
wrong in our right
There's sorry babe, I'm workin' late tonight
Well, there's two sides, there's another side of me
There's the one you think, you live with,
the one you never see
lt's never really lived, but it's never really died
It's never really made it but it's tried
Well, there's two sides to every conversation
But with you babe, that's no consolation
Silence is golden, let me put you on hold
Danglin' on your love line, baby, it's growin' old
WeII, I don't know how to say it
Cause I never thought I could
God knows I've tried so many times
But there's two sides, there's another side of me
There's the one you think you live with,
the one you never see
It's never really lived, but it's never really died
It's never really made it, but it's tried
To every creation
We're no revelation
One sees the wrong, and one sees the right
The other side of me just caught a flight
Goodbye
 
MAN SMART, WOMAN SMARTER
 
Let us put man and woman together
And see which one is smarter
Some say man, but I say no
The woman got the man like a puppet show
It ain't me, it's the people that say
The men are leadin' the women astray
But I say that the women today
Are smarter than man in every way
Well that's right, the women are smarter
That's right, the women are smarter
Little boy sat down and cried
An old man passin' asking him why, he said
I can't do what the big boys do
Old man sat down and he cried too
Ain't me, it's the people that say
The men are leadin' the women astray
But I say, that the women today
Are smarter than man in every way
That's right, the women are smarter
That's right, the women are smarter
That's right, the women are smarter
That's right, the women are smarter
Well that's right, the women are smarter
Smarter than man in every way
 
CALLING OCCUPANTS OF INTERPLANETARY CRAFT
(The Recognized Anthem of World Contact Day)
 
In your mind you have capacities you know
To telepath messages through the vast unknown
Please close your eyes and concentrate
With every thought you think
Upon the recitation we're about to sing
Calling occupants of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary, most extraordinary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary, most extraordinary craft
You've been observing our earth
And we'd like to make a contact with you
We are your friends
Calling occupants of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary ultra emissaries
We've been observing your earth
And one night we'll make a contact with you
We are your friends
Calling occupants of interplanetary quite extraordinary craft
And please come in pace we beseech you
(Only of love we will teach you)
Our earth may never survive (So don't come we beg you)
Please interstellar policemen
Won't you give us a sign give us a sign that we've reached you
With your mind you have ability to form
And transmit thought energy far beyond the norm
You close your eyes, you concentrate, together that's the way
To send a message we declare World Contact Day
Calling occupants of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary, most extraordinary craft
Calling occupants
Calling occupants
Calling occupants of interplanetary, anti-adversary craft
We are your friends
