Side One

1. I knew you when 2:48

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

I knew you when you were lonely.
I knew you when you were lonely;
A girl all alone without love.
I knew you when..

I knew you when
You were sad and all alone.
You didn't have anyone
That you could call your own.
I knew you when
Your heart belonged to only me,
But that was many tears ago.
Now your love is just a memory.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

I knew you when you were lonely.
I knew you when you were lonely;
A girl all alone without love.
I knew you when..

I knew you when
We used to have a lot of fun,
But someone new could offer more.
Now I'm the lonely one.
I knew you when
You were just a scared little girl.
I used to be your only love
Before you came up in the world.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

I knew you when you were lonely.
I knew you when you were lonely;
A girl all alone without love.
I knew you when..

2. Little bit 2:52

Little bit, say you
love me just a little bit
Oh ‘cause girl I love you so,
I don’t think I’ll ever let you go.
Come on now,
Little one, I want to be the only one.
Oh, that you take into your heart,
girl you’re tearin’ me apart.
I love you so.

All this time I’ve been
lookin’ to find
A sweet little girl like you
 (sweet girl like you)
And now that I have found ya
let me wrap my arms around ya
Girl you’re my dream
come true oo-ooh

Little bit, won’t you
love me just a little bit
I don’t think I’ll let you go
‘til you love me just
a little bit more.
(just a little bit more)

Come on now
Little one, I want to
be the only one
That you take into your heart.
Girl you’re tearin’ me apart
I love you so
(don’t you know
that I love you so.)

Since I met ya girl
I can’t forget ya
Every word I speak
is your name
( I speak your name)
Although you’re kinda shy
you can have your pick of guys.
That’s what’s drivin’ me insane.

Oo-ooh Little bit, say you
love me just a little bit
Oh, ‘cause girl I love you so,
I don’t think I’ll ever let you go.
(Don’t you know that
I love you, baby)

Come on now
Little one, I want to
be the only one
That you take into your heart.
Girl you’re tearin’ me apart
I love you so
(don’t you know that
I love you, baby)

3. Go away little girl 2:42

Go away, little girl, go away, little girl.
I'm not supposed to be alone with you.
I know that your lips are sweet but our lips must never meet.
I'm dating somebody else, I must be true.

Oh, go away little girl, go away, little girl.
It's hurting me more each minute that we delay.
when you're near me like this, you're much too hard to resist.
So go away, little girl, before I beg you to stay.

Go away, little girl, go away, little girl.
It hurts me more the more that we delay.
When you're near me like this, you're much too hard to resist.
So go away, little girl, let's call it a day, little girl.
Please, go away little girl, before I beg you to stay.

4. Hey little johnny 2:35

Let me tell you ‘bout the
worst little boy in school.
Just loved breakin’
the golden rule.
He’s always got
mischief on his mind.
Stays in trouble y’all all the time.

Hey Little Johnny,
what’cha gonna do next?
You’ll be coming to school,
the worst little pest.
Hey little Johnny,
what’cha gonna do?
The whole neighborhood
is talkin’ ‘bout you.

Thought you had
the teacher fooled.
But yesterday she caught on to you.
Copyin’ your homework
from Mary Jane.
You had to stay after school
and do it over again.

Hey little Johnny,
what’cha gonna do next?
Johnny coming to school
is the worst little pest.
Hey little Johnny,
what’cha gonna do?
The whole neighborhood is
talkin’ ‘bout you.

If you don’t stop throwin’
those spitballs
Your gonna flunk
yourself again this fall.
If you ain’t pullin’
some little girls hair
You got your pet frogs
jumpin’ everywhere.

Hey little Johnny
what’cha gonna do next?
You put a bad apple
on the teacher’s desk.
Hey little Johnny
what’cha gonna do next?
You put some gum on
the Principal’s chair.
Hey little Johnny
what’cha gonna do next?
You’ll be coming to school,
is the worst little pest.
Hey little Johnny
what’cha gonna do next?
The whole neighborhood
is talkin’ ’bout you.

5. Sit down, i think i love you 3:05

Sit down I think I love you
Anyway I'd like to try
I can't stop thinking of you
If you go I'll know I cry

Can't you see that I'm a desperate man
I can hide, just being around
You want to know What they say about the bird in my hand
And that's why I ain't leaving without you

So if you want someone to love you
Pretty babe I'm your guy
It's not much I'm asking of you
Just please give me a try

Side Two

1. A little bit me, a little bit you 3:03

Walk out,
Girl don’t you walk out
We’ve got things to say
Talked out, let’s have it talked out
Things will be okay

Girl
I don’t want to find
That I’m a little bit wrong
And you’re a little bit right
I said girl
You know that it’s true
It’s a little bit me, (a little bit me)
And it’s a little bit you... too

Don’t know... just what I said wrong
But girl I apologize
Don’t go... here’s where you belong
So wipe the tears from your eyes

Girl
I don’t want to find
That I’m a little bit wrong
And you’re a little bit right
I said girl
You know that it’s true
It’s a little bit me
And it’s a little bit you... too

Instrumental

Oh girl
I don’t want to find
I’m a little bit wrong
And you’re a little bit right
I said girl
You know that it’s true
It’s a little bit me
And it’s a little bit you... to

It’s a little bit me
It’s a little bit you
Girl don’t go
No no no no no
Girl don’t go
No no no no no
Hey girl

2. Do You Want Me? 2.40

I can make you smile,
Make your time worth while,
Only if we’re together.

I can be your friend till the very end we can make it together
Yes I do, I really do, do wanna love you (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
What can I do to get your love true
Do you want me, do you want me

Can’t we be alone? You and me alone
I just want us together
You can find in me, more then what you see
We can make it together

Yes I do, I really do, do wanna love you (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
What can I do, to get your love
Do you want me, do you want me

I love you so much, I need you to touch
Why not make it forever
Let me call you mine
It’s just a matter of time (we can make it together)
You and me together.

3. Bye bye love 2:26

Bye bye love
Bye bye happiness
Hello loneliness
I think I'm gonna cry
Bye bye love
Bye bye sweet caress
Hello emptiness
I feel like I could die
Bye bye my love, goodbye

There goes my baby
With someone new
She sure looks happy
I sure am blue
She was my baby
Till he stepped in
Goodbye to romance
That might have been

I'm through with romance
I'm through with love
I'm through with counting
The stars above
And here's the reason
That I'm so free
My loving baby
Is through with me

4. I’m into something good 2:43
(Gerry Goffin / Carole King)

Woke up this mornin' feelin' fine
There's somethin' special on my mind
Last night I met a new girl in the neighbourhood, whoa yeah
Somethin' tells me I'm into something good
(Somethin' tells me I'm into somethin')

She's the kind of girl who's not too shy
And I can tell I'm her kind of guy
She danced close to me like I hoped she would
(she danced with me like I hoped she would)
Somethin' tells me I'm into something good
(Somethin' tells me I'm into somethin')

We only danced for a minute or two
But then she stuck close to me the whole night through
Can I be fallin' in love
She's everthing I've been dreamin' of
She's everthing I've been dreamin' of

I walked her home and she held my hand
I knew it couldn't be just a one-night stand
So I asked to see her next week and she told me I could
(I asked to see her and she told me I could)
Somethin' tells me I'm into something good
(Somethin' tells me I'm into somethin')
(Somethin' tells me I'm into somethin', ahhh)

I walked her home and she held my hand
I knew it couldn't be just a one-night stand
So I asked to see her next week and she told me I could
(I asked to see her and she told me I could)
Somethin' tells me I'm into something good
(somethin' tells me I'm into somethin')
Somethin' tells me I'm into something good
(somethin' tells me I'm into somethin')
To something good, oh yeah, something good
(somethin' tells me I'm into somethin')
To something good, something good, something good

5. Standing in the need of love 2:14
