Side One

1. Puppy Love 3.03
(Paul Anka)

And they called it puppy love,
oh, I guess they'll never know
how the young heart really feels,
and why I love her so.

And they called it puppy love,
just because we're in our teens.
Tell them all,
please tell them it isn't fair
to take away my only dream.

I cry each night my tears for you,
my tears are all in vain.
I hope and I pray
that maybe someday
you'll be back (you’ll be back)
in my arms once again.
(you’ll be back in my
arms once again)

Someone help me, help me,
help me please
Is the answer up above?
How can I, oh how can I tell them
this is not a puppy love.

Someone help me, help me,
help me please
Is the answer up above?
How can I, oh how can I tell them
this is not a puppy love.

Not a puppy love

2. Hey Girl 3.10
(Carole King - Gerry Goffin)

Hey girl, I want you to know
I'm going to miss you
so much if you go.
(bye bye baby)

And hey girl, I tell you no lie,
Something deep inside
of me is going to die
(bye bye baby)
if you say so long,
if this is good-bye, oh

Hey girl, this can't be true.
(can’t be true)
How am I supposed to
exist without you?
(without you)

And hey girl, now don't put me on,
what's goin’ to happen to
me when you're gone?
How will I live,
how can I go on?
How can I go on,
Hey girl. Oh.
(bye bye baby)

Hey girl, now sit yourself down,
I'm not ashamed to get
down on the ground
and beg you, beg you to stay.
Oh, don't go away
Hey girl.

3. Going, Going, Gone (To Somebody Else) 2.07

(L. Weiss)

Girl, I'll be going, going, gone
to somebody else, somebody else.
Girl, I'll be going, going gone
to somebody else.

Handle me easy, baby,
or I might break.
Watch how you treat me, baby,
for your own sake.
My love is growing stronger,
if you wait any longer

I'll be going, going, gone to
somebody else, somebody else.
Girl, I'll be going, going, gone
to somebody else.

Baby, you're used to playing
so hard to get.
Having your own sweet way
and making 'em sweat.
Baby, I'm not your rover,
you'd better move on over.

Girl, I'll be going, going, gone
to somebody else, somebody else.
Girl, I'll be going, going, gone
to somebody else.

Baby, I'm not your rover,
you'd better move on over.
I'll be going, going, gone
to somebody else, somebody else.
Girl, I'll be going, going, gone
to somebody else, somebody else.
I'll be going, going, gone
to somebody else, somebody else.
Girl, I'll be going, going, gone
to somebody else

4. I've Got Plans For You 2.15

(Roger Christian - Mike Curb - Don Costa)

Hey, little girl,
I've been watching you,
and thinking about
all the things that
we both could do.
When the right time comes,
and you walk my way,
I'll take your hand,
and you'll hear me say

I've got plans for you,
believe me.
I'm gonna teach you
to really need me,
just like I need you.

I've seen your eyes laugh
when you were glad,
then, fill with tears
when you were sad.
Thinking of a love
that just didn't last,
well I'm here to tell you, girl,
that's all in the past, 'cause

Oh, I've got plans for you,
believe me.
I'm gonna teach you
to really need me,
just like I need you.

You know, I'll have something
to believe in when
the day is through.
'Cause when I think
about tomorrow,
my heart is filled with you.
You may have known
another before I met you,
But now that's all in the past
so he'd better forget, you.

Ooo, baby, I've got plans for you,
believe me,
I'm gonna teach you
to really need me,
just like I need you.
I've got plans for you,
believe me.
I'm gonna teach you
to really need me,
just like I need you.
I've got plans for you

5. Promise Me

When you went away,
I was still holding you
in my mind,
thinking all was fine
Love was so kind.
Oh, but then wouldn't you know?
Loneliness came through,
I discovered my arms
were without you
And I had to cry
When was goodbye?
Oh, when I find you

Ooo, baby, promise me
you'll always be
The one who's love
returns to me
and baby, we will always
be together
Wait for me patiently
I'll be there, wait and see
I need you like you need me forever

Yes, I know you're there,
waiting till I find you
hiding, but where?
In my lonely room
you're already there
Oh, I must find you
Can I face each day
knowing with my waking
you slip away
Oh, it isn't fair,
me here, you there
When we're together

Ooo, yeah, yeah...
Promise me you'll always be
the one who's love returns to me.
And baby, we will always be together.
Wait for me patiently.
I'll be there, wait and see.
I need you like
you need me forever
Oh baby, promise me
you'll always be
the one who's love returns to me.

Side Two

5. Let My People Go

 Let my people go,
let my people go,
ooo, let my people go,
let my people go.....

God will have mercy,
he'll forgive us,
all our sins, yeah...
He'll guide us to
the promised land
if we turn to him,
if we turn to him.

Let my people go,
let my people go.

Moses led them to Sinai,
he spent forty nights and days.
The people promised to follow God,
but the people turned away.
And then Moses broke the stones
of the laws God had made.
He said you must be on God's side
in order to be saved. Woe yeah.

(God will have mercy,
he'll forgive us, all our sins)
Oh yeah
(he'll guide us to the promised land)
if we turn to him, if we turn to him.

Oh, let my people go,
let my people go, it’s necessary
let my people go
let my people go
let my people go

(God will have mercy,
he'll forgive us, all our sins)
Oh yeah
(he'll guide us to the promised land)
if we turn to him,
if we turn to him.
C’mon, let my people go
Let my people,
let my people go.

2. All I Have To Do Is Dream

Dream, dream dream dream.
Dream, dream dream, dream.

When I want you in my arms,
when I want you
and all your charms
Whenever I want you,
all I have to do is dream.

When I feel blue in the night,
I need you to hold me tight
Whenever I want you,
all I have to do is dream.

I can make you mine,
taste your lips so fine,
any time, night or day
Only trouble is, gee whiz
I'm dreamin' my life away.

I need you so that I could die,
I love you so, and that is why
Whenever I want you
all I have to do is dream.

I can make you mine,
taste your lips so fine,
any time, night or day
Only trouble is, gee whiz,
I'm dreamin' my life away

I need you so that I could die,
I love you so, and that is why
Whenever I want you,
all I have to do, is...

Dream, dream dream dream
Dream, dream dream dream
Dream

3. Hey There, Lonely Girl 3.30

(E. Shuman - L. Carr)

Hey there lonely girl,
lonely girl,
let me make your
broken heart like new.
Hey there, lonely girl,
lonely girl,
don't you know this
lonely boy loves you?

Ever since he broke your heart,
you seem so lost each
time you pass my way.
Oh, how I long to take your hand
and say don't cry,
I'll kiss your tears away

Hey, hey there lonely girl,
my lonely girl,
let me make your
broken heart like new.
Hey there lonely girl,
my only girl,
don't you know this
lonely boy loves you?

You think that only his two lips
can kiss your lips
and make your heart stand still.
But once you're in my
arms, you'll see
no one can kiss your lips
the way I will, the way I will.

Hey there lonely girl,
lonely girl,
let me make your
broken heart like new
Hey there, lonely girl,
lonely girl
don't you know this
lonely boy loves you
Don't you know this
lonely boy loves you

Don't you know this lonely boy loves you

Hey there, lonely girl.

4. Big Man 2.36 ?

(B. Belland - G. Larson)

I was a big man yesterday,
but boy you ought to see me now.
Well I talked big yesterday,
but boy you ought to see me now.

I bragged too long
that your love was strong,
there'd never be another guy.
But you said more
when you whispered your goodbye.

I was a big man yesterday,
but boy you ought to see me now

I said that I was through with you,
that I didn't need you anyhow.
I said I didn't need you then,
but boy you ought to see me now.

Those bragging words
that you were mine
that there was no doubt,
sounds empty now
since half my life walked out

Half my life left me yesterday,
and boy you ought to see me now

If you would just
forgive me, dear,
I'd never break another vow
I broke so many yesterday,
and boy you ought to see me now

I couldn't see it yesterday,
but now I know it's true
The only thing that
made me big was you

I was a big man yesterday,
boy you ought to see me now.
if you could only see me now,
if you would only see me now,
if you could only see me now
if you could only see me now

5. Love Me

You've come a long way girl,
but there's a lot of love that you hide.
You're sad and lonely girl,
but it's not that you haven't tried.
All you gotta do,
yeah, all you gotta say is just...

Love me, love me, love me.
Love me, alright.

When you were younger girl,
you thought that
everything would be fine.
But now you're older girl,
and your running out of time.
I'll show you the way,
only if you'll stay and just
Love me, love me, love me.
Love me, alright.

Girl, I'm gonna love you
like you've never been loved before.
Keep in mind the things we said,
don't lose your head on love.

You've come a long way girl,
just to lose the good
that you've found.
Well now, what you've got, yes,
I'd like to keep you around.
So, keep me in your heart,
I swear we'll never part. If you'll just

Love me, love me, love me.
If you'll just
Love me, love me, love me.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Love me, love me, love me.
Come on now.
Love me, love me, love me.....

5. This Guy's In Love With You

You see this guy?
This guy's in love with you.
Yes I'm in love.
Who looks at you the way I do
When you smile, I can tell
we know each other very well.
How can I show you
that I got to know you 'cause

I've heard some talk,
they say you think I'm fine.
This guy's in love,
and what I'd do to make you mine.
Tell me now, is it so
Don't let me be the last to know.
My hands are shakin',
don't let my heart be breakin' 'cause...

I need your love,
I want your love.
Say you're in love,
in love with this guy.
If not, I'll just die.

Oh tell me now, is it so?
Don't let me be the last to know.
My hands are shakin',
don't let my heart be breakin' 'cause....

I need your love,
I want your love.
Say you're in love,
in love with this guy.
If not I'll just die.

This guy's in love,
this guy's in love with you.
