Side 1

1. On The Shelf

You took my love
and you threw it away
Gave you my heart
and you took it that day
T-t-t-took it away
T-t-t-took it away
Mm and I want it back

Went for a drive just the other day
I left my heart and you towed it away
T-t-t-towed it away
T-t-t-towed it away
And I want it back

I’m like a dog without a bone
I’m like a house that’s not a home
I’m like a watch that nobody
wants to wind
I’m like a lock without a key
Nobody wants to lean on me
I’m so lonely, lonely without you
There on the shelf am I
Baby , there on the shelf am I

Went to a party ‘cause
you said you would go
I sat around but you didn’t show
No no no you didn’t show
No no no you didn’t show no no, no no

I  ring your house
I don’t get no reply
Well I don’t know
I think you’re telling me lies
T-t-t-telling me lies
T-t-t-telling me lies
Oh oh oh-oh-oh

I’m like a dog without a bone
I’m like a house that’s not a home
I’m like a watch that nobody
wants to wind
I’m like a lock without a key
Nobody wants to lean on me
I’m so lonely, lonely without you
There on the shelf am I
Baby , there on the shelf am I

Baby, there on the shelf am I
Baby, there on the shelf am I
Baby, there on the shelf am I
Baby, there on the shelf am I
Baby, there on the shelf am I
Baby, there on the shelf am I

2. Don't Play With The One Who Loves You

You look at me sometimes as if
you know what’s inside my mind
And I can stand with the way
 I feel from day to day
Oh but when you turn away
it doesn’t matter what I try to say
Never sure just where I stand

So don’t play with
the one who loves you
Don’t tell lies to
the one who cares
No don’t you play
with the one who loves you
For the day may come
when I’m not there

One of these days you’ll find that
you’ve been left all alone far behind
And there’s no one to pick you up
when you’re down – so down
Yeah but there’s a chance for you to
do the things that love tells you too
Here I am reaching out to you

So don’t play with the
one who loves you
Don’t tell lies to the one who cares
No don’t you play with the
one who loves you
For the day may come when I’m not there

So don’t play with the
one who loves you
Don’t tell lies to the one who cares
No don’t you play with the
one who loves you
For the day may come
when I’m not there

So don’t play with the
one who loves you
Don’t tell lies to the one who cares
Don’t you play with the
one who loves you
For the day may come
when I’m not there

3. You Don't Have To Say You Love Me

When I said I needed  you
You said you would always stay
It wasn’t me who changed but you
And now you’ve gone away

Don’t you see that now you’ve gone
And I’m left here on my own
That I have to follow you
And beg you to come home

You don’t have to say you love me
Just be close at hand
You don’t have to stay forever
I will understand
Believe me, believe me
I can’t help but love you
But believe me
I’ll never tie you down

Left alone with just a memory
Life seems dead and so unreal
All that’s left is loneliness
There’s nothing left to fear

You don’t have to say you love me
Just be close at hand
You don’t have to stay forever
I will understand
Believe me, believe me

You don’t have to say you love me
Just be close at hand
You don’t have to stay forever
I will understand
Believe me , believe me

You don’t have to say you love me
You don’t have to stay forever
Oh you don’t have to say you love me
You don’t have to stay forever

4. Baby, Now That I've Found You

Baby, now that I’ve found you
I can’t let you go
I’ll  build my world around you
I need you so
Baby, even though you don’t need me
You don’t need me

Baby, now that I’ve found you
I can’t let you go
I’ll  build my world around you
I need you so
Baby, even though you don’t need me
You don’t need me

Baby, baby since first we met
I knew in this heart of mine
The love we had could not be bad
I’ll do it right and bide my time
I spent my lifetime
looking for somebody
To give me love like you
Now you tell me that you
want to leave me
Darlin’ I can’t take that too

Oh baby, now that I’ve found you
I can’t let you go
I’ll  build my world around you
I need you so
Baby, even though you don’t need me
You don’t need me

Oh baby, now that I’ve found you
I can’t let you go
I’ll  build my world around you
I need you so
Baby, even though you don’t need me
You don’t need me

I spent my lifetime
looking for somebody
To give me love like you
Now you tell me that
you wanna leave me
Darling, I can’t take that too

Oh baby, now that I’ve found you
I can’t let you go
I’ll  build my world around you
I need you so
Baby, even though you don’t need me
You don’t need me

5. Gimme Some Time

Mmm from the first
time I set eyes on you
You came onto me so strong
But you’ve got to take it easy
My love can’t be rushed along
Ooo let me get to know you
It’s worth all the time it takes
I can’t be too hasty girl
There’s way too much at stake, oh

Gimme some time to
fall in love with you baby
If I don’t believe in love
at first sight
Gimme some time to fall
in love with you baby (baby)
Gimme some time to find
out if it’s right (if it’s right)

Oh
Woo hoo

Don’t think you don’t get to me
You’re everything I want
I’m just not quite ready yet
To tie that little knot
Well my love’s getting
stronger honey day by day
But I’ve got to know for sure
if we see things in the same way

Gimme some time to
fall in love with you baby
If I don’t believe in love
at first sight (woo hoo)
Gimme some time to fall
in love with you baby (baby)
Gimme some time to find
out if it’s right (if it’s right)

Woo hoo

Gimme some time to
fall in love with you baby
Gimme some time to find
out if it’s right (if it’s right)

Gimme some time,
gimme some time baby
Gimme some time,
gimme some time right now
Wo gimme some time,
gimme some time baby
Gimme some time,
gimme some time right now

Wo Gimme some time,
gimme some time
I need you baby,
oh I want you baby
you got to Gimme some time,
Gimme Gimme some time

Side 2

1. Let's Fall In Love

Let’s fall in love
Why shouldn’t we fall in love
Our hearts are made of it
Let’s take a chance,
why be afraid of it

Let’s close our eyes
And make our own paradise
Little we know of it
Still we can try to make a go of it

We might have been
meant for each other
To be or not to be,
let our hearts discover

Let’s fall in love
Why shouldn’t we fall in love
Our hearts are made of it
While we are young,
let’s fall in love

Let’s fall in love
Why shouldn’t we fall in love
Our hearts are made of it
While we are young,
let’s fall in love

Let’s fall in love
Why shouldn’t we fall in love
Our hearts are made of it

2. You Bring Me Sunshine

Well, since the day
that I met you girl
You’ve been running
around in my mind
Oh, and all I do is think of you
Oh, every night and day
Mmm, and baby
when I am with you
I just wanna hold
you in my arms
Oh, and I can’t lose
when I’m with you
Oh, I’ve got you into my heart

You bring me sunshine
Oh baby make me feel alright
You bring me sunshine
Oh baby you’re out of sight
You bring me sunshine
You’re everything in every way
You bring me sunshine
I need you baby every single day

And don’t it make you happy now
That we finally got it together
Yeah, the feelings right
we’ve seen the light
Wo, now let’s keep it together
Wo, I’ve been looking for oh so long
To find a love to fill my heart
Oh when I saw you I really knew
It was you right from the start

Here we are together
right where we both belong
Don’t let the stormy weather
come between our love so strong
Cause I love you and I need ya
And you know what you’re doing to me

You bring me sunshine
Oh baby make me feel alright
You bring me sunshine
Oh baby you’re out of sight
You bring me sunshine
You’re everything in every way
You bring me sunshine
I need you baby every single day

3. Fallin' In Love

5. You Never Can Tell

It was a rock’n’ roll wedding and
the old folks wished them well
You could see that Pierre did
truly love the mademoiselle
And now the young monsieur and
madame have rung the chapel bell
“C est. le vie” say the old folks,
it goes to show you never can tell

They furnished off an apartment
with a two room Roebuck sale
The coolerator was crammed with
TV dinners and ginger ale
But when Pierre found work,
the little money comin
worked out well
“C est. le vie” say the old folks,
it goes to show you never can tell

They had a hi-fi phono and
boy did they let it blast
Seven hundred little records
all rock ‘n’ rhythm and jazz
But when the sun went down,
the rapid tempo of the music fell
“C est. le vie” say the old folks,
it goes to show you never can tell

They bought a souped up Chevy,
was a cherry red 53
They drove it down to New Orleans
to celebrate the anniversary
It was there where Pierre was
married to the lovely mademoiselle
“C est. le vie” say the old folks,
it goes to show you never can tell

It was a rock’n’ roll wedding
and the old folks wished them well
You could see that Pierre did
truly love the mademoiselle
And now the young monsieur
and madame have rung
the chapel bell
“C est. le vie” say the old folks,
it goes to show you never can tell

It was a rock ‘n’ roll wedding and
the old folks wished them well
You could see that Pierre did
truly love the mademoiselle
