Side One

1. Sweet And Innocent

I love the little wiggle in your walk, the way you cuddle on my shoulder.
But you're too young to know the score, so come back when you're older.

'Cause you're too sweet and innocent and you're just too young for me.

The way you hold me not too tight, the tender way you kiss goodnight, tells
me you've got some growing up to do.
Woah, young and beautiful, is the love, oh, you give to me.
You're not hip, so get with it girl.
Go on back to your make believe world.

Sweet and innocent, you're too young and beautiful for me.
Sweet and innocent, but you're just oh, too young for me.

I'd like to kiss you and hold you tight, so go on home, girl, or I just
might.
You're too sweet and innocent, you're too young and beautiful for me.

You're so sweet and innocent, but you're much too young little girl.
Go on home, just leave me alone, little girl.

2. I'm Your Puppet

Pull a string, and I'll wink at you, I'm your puppet.
I'll do funny things if you want me to, I'm your puppet, girl.
I'm yours to have and to hold, darlin' you've got full control.
I'm your puppet, ooo, ooh, I'm your puppet, girl.

Just pull the little string, and I'll kiss your lips, I'm your puppet.
Snap your fingers, and I'll turn you some flips, I'm your puppet.
Oh, your every wish is my command, all you gotta do is wiggle your
little hand.
I'm your puppet, ooo, ooh, I'm your puppet, girl.

I'm just a toy, just a funny boy, makes you laugh when you feel blue.
I'll be warm or cold, do just what I'm told, I'll do anything for you.
I'm your puppet, ooo, oooh, I'm your puppet, girl.

Just pull the little strings, and I'll sing you a song, I'm your puppet.
Make me do right, or make me do wrong, I'm your puppet.
Oh, treat me good, and I'll do anything, I'm just a puppet and you hold my
strings.
I'm your puppet, I'm your puppet, girl.
I'm your walkin', talkin', livin', lovin' puppet, hangin' on a string, sing
for you girl...
Ooo yeah, I'm your puppet, ooooh, I'm your puppet, girl.

3. Hey Little Girl

Hey little girl in the high school sweater, gee, but I'd like to know you
better.
Just swingin' your books and chewin' gum, lookin' just like a juicy plum
hey, hey, little girl.

Hey little girl in the black silk stockings, gee, but you got my heart
a-rockin'.
Wearin' that crazy skin tight skirt, and that crazy Ivy League shirt hey,
hey little girl.


Hey little girl, can I come along?
Carry your books and hold your arm, yeah.
Hopin' that you'll tell me yes, 'cause your the girl that I love the best.

Hey, hey, little girl.
Hey, hey, little girl.

Hey little girl in the high school sweater, gee I hope your feelin' better.
Not just like the time before, remember when you closed that door?
Hey, hey, little girl.

Hey, little girl, can I come along?
Carry your books and hold your arm.
Hopin' that you'll tell me yes, 'cause your the girl that I love the best.
Hey, hey, little girl.
Hey, hey, little girl.

4. Don't Say No

I guess you know what's on my mind, I want you near me so please don't waste my time.
I may change my mind before tomorrow, so don't give yourself a chance, girl,
to be sorry.
Oh no...

Don't say no to me this time.
Give my love a try before you make up your mind.
Let me be the one to share your tears.
And if you say no, you'll never know what you missed.
Love, it's all in your eyes, in your touch and in your smile.
Don't say no, I want and need you way too much.

When you're with him, you look so fine.
But we both know, little girl, he's not your kind.
You need someone that you can't control.
And if you'll be mine, I'll never, ever let you go.
Oh...

Don't say no to me this time.
Give my love a try before you make up your mind.
Let me be the one to share your tears.
And if you say no, you'll never know what you missed.
Love, it's all in your eyes, in your touch and in your smile.
Don't say no, I want to be with you too much.

5. So Shy

Lift your arms let the wind blow inside.
Be yourself you've got nothing to hide.
You aren't shy no more, but you won't let me be your guy 'cause you're so shy.

When you toss in the night and can't sleep, and the sweat standing out on
your cheeks....you'll remember me, but you were too afraid to speak 'cause
you're so shy.
You're so shy... you're so shy you're so shy...

Child why can't you look me straight in the eye, yeah.
Don't you know you're as sweet as July?
I can see it easy, the blind man ain't that blind.
One sweet kiss from you girl, would surely blow my mind.
Shy... shy ...so shy

One fine day when you call out my name and we play some of our kissing
games, I won't tell a soul because I know you'd be ashamed 'cause you're so shy....

Side Two

1. Lollipops, Lace, And Lipstick

Doo de doo de doo doo doo wop, everybody to his own kick (yeah)...
Doo de doo de doo doo doo wop, mine is lollipops, lace and lipstick.

When I was just a kid, I really fell in love with a little girl on my block.
I tried and tried to win her love, but she loved only lollipops!
I tried in every way I knew just to win her little heart, until one day I
gave a lollipop, then cupid shot his dart! Oh...
Doo de doo de doo doo doo wop, everybody to his own kick (everybody sing)...
Doo de doo de doo doo doo wop, mine is lollipops, lace and lipstick.

Now I'm in my teens and I began to notice that my taste was changing fast.
From buttons and bows, and a turned up nose to lipstick, ribbon and lace!
She is still the apple of my eye, and she's really got some class.
She's got a wiggle in her walk and a giggle in her talk, all covered in
ribbons and lace. Oh...

Doo de doo de doo doo doo wop, everybody to his own kick (yeah)....
Doo de doo de doo doo doo wop, mine is lollipops, lace and lipstick.

As I grow up I know I'll learn to love the gentle touch of her fingertips.
But there's one thing that I've got to do, taste the lipstick off of her lips!
Then one fine day, I'll say goodbye to all the joy, the laughs and tears.
For some day I'll make this girl my wife, and be the guy with the lipstick
smears! Oh....

Doo de doo de doo doo doo wop, everybody to his own kick (yeah, yeah,
yeah)...
Doo de doo de doo doo doo wop, mine is lollipops, lace and lipstick.
Doo de doo de doo doo doo wop...


 

2. Flirtin'

Well, the pretty ring I gave to you don't seem to mean anything, girl.
Well, you're just as nice, but I'm cold as ice as I sit here all alone.

Call my friends and they call theirs, but they said they hadn't seen you.
So I clutch your picture to my chest and wait for you to phone.

Ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo baby, you been flirtin'.
Ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo, Cheatin' and sneakin' around.
Ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo, Well that's no way to treat me.
Ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo, Gonna get a rope and tie you down.


Well, twelve o'clock, it was just no use, so I got up to go searchin'.
Without a clue to where to find you, I didn't know who to call.

Walkin' down this cold dark street I could hear my mama sayin'
"Son don't sit home for that girl, while she's out having a ball."


Ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo, Baby, you been flirtin'.
Ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo, Cheatin' and sneakin' around.
Ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo, Well, that's no way to treat me.
Ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo, Gonna get a rope and tie you down.

Now I don't want to fight, that's not justified.
Hey stop, look at me!
If you wanna be mine, you gotta give all your love to me.
Yeah, stop, look at you!
You're a shell of a girl...with a heart that's so untrue.

Baby, you been flirtin', cheatin' and sneakin'around......
Stop, look at me, you been flirtin', look at you! Mama's right!

3. Burning Bridges

Friends all tried to warn me but I held my head up high.
All the times they warned me, but I only passed them by.
They all tried to tell me but I guess I didn't care.
I turned my back and left them standing there.

All those burning bridges that have fallen after me.
All the lonely feelings and the burning memories.
Everyone I left behind each time I closed a door.
Burning bridges lost forever more.

Joey tried to help me find a job awhile ago.
When I finally got it, I didn't want to go.
What is there in keep for me when I just walk away?
Now there's nothing left for me to say.

All those burning bridges that have fallen after me.
All the lonely feelings and the burning memories.
Everyone I left behind each time I closed a door.
Burning bridges lost forever more.

Years have passed and I keep thinking what a fool I've been.
I look back into the past and think of way back when.
I know that I lost everything I thought that I could win.
I guess I should have listened to my friends.

All those burning bridges that have fallen after me.
All the lonely feelings and the burning memories.
Everyone I left behind each time I closed a door.
Burning bridges lost forever more...

4. The Wild Rover (Time To Ride)

Sleep on, little darlin', the sun's about to rise, sleep on, little darlin',
don't you open up your eyes.
I'd like to stay here with you, because you're outta sight, but baby, I'm a
rover, and it's getting light.
It's time to ride, time to ride, time to ride...

All I ever need, babe, I'm wearin' on my back, I'm a man who travels light,
babe, so I got no need to pack.
I'd like to stay here with you, and try to make things right, but baby, I'm
a rover, and it's getting light.
It's time to ride, time to ride, time to ride....

It's true I want somebody walkin' by my side, it's fine I love somebody, but
what I love is wide.
I'll always think about you when I lie awake at night, but baby, I'm a
rover, and it's getting light.
It's time to ride, time to ride, time to ride...

5. Wake Up, Little Susie

Wake up, little Susie, wake up
Wake up, little Susie, wake up
We've both been sound asleep, wake up, little Susie, and weep.
The movie's over, it's four o'clock, and we're in trouble deep
Wake up little Susie
Wake up little Susie, well....

What are you gonna tell your mama, what are you gonna tell your pa?
What are gonna tell your friends when they go "ooh-la-la"!
Wake up little Susie
Wake up little Susie, well...

I told your mama that you'd be in by ten
Well Susie baby looks like we goofed again
Wake up little Susie
Wake up little Susie, we gotta go home!

Wake up, little Susie, wake up
Wake up, little Susie, wake up
The movie wasn't so hot, it didn't have much of a plot.
We fell asleep, our goose is cooked, our reputation is shot!
Wake up little Susie
Wake up little Susie, well...

What are you gonna tell your mama, what are you gonna tell your pa?
What are you gonna tell your friends when they go "ooh-la-la"!
Wake up little Susie
