3. Your Mama Don't Dance

Well my mama don’t dance
and my daddy don’t rock ‘n roll
Well my mama don’t dance
And my daddy don’t rock ‘n roll
When evenin’ comes around
and it’s time to go to town
Where do you go
to rock ‘n roll

Well the old folks say that you
gotta end a date by ten
If your out on a date and
you bring her home late it’s a sin
You just don’t get to choose
and you know you’re gonna lose
You never win.
I’ll say it again.

Alright Wayne!

Don’t you know that
my mama don’t dance
and my daddy don’t rock ‘n roll
Well my mama don’t dance
And my daddy don’t rock ‘n roll
When evenin’ comes around
and it’s time to go to town
Where do you go (where do you go)
to rock ‘n roll (to rock and roll)

Where do you go (where do you go)
to rock ‘n roll (to rock and roll)
Where do you go (where do you go)
to rock ‘n roll (to rock and roll)

That’s some good rock ‘n roll

4. Hold Her Tight

What is the matter
Now what did you do
Did you go and lose her
like the others too
Let me tell you something
here's the way it goes
There's a way to treat 'em
everybody knows

Hold her tight
but hold her like a baby
Make her feel
make her feel real good
Give her chance
give her time to love ya
Don't let go
if you know
no one else can touch her.

Everybody tells you
she's the one for you
So if I was you boy
here's what I'd do

Hold her tight
but hold her like a baby
Make her feel
make her feel real good
Give her chance
give her time to love ya
Don't let go,
if you know
no one else can touch her, yeah

You got to hold her like a baby
Hold her tight
but hold her like a baby
Make her feel
make her feel real good
Give her chance
give her time to love ya
Hold her tight
but hold her like a baby

5. Love Me For A Reason

Girl when you hold me
how you control me
You bend and you fold me
any way you please
It must be easy for you
the loving things that you do
are just a pastime for you
I could never be
And I never know, girl
if I should stay or go, girl
'Cause the games
that you play
keep driving me away

Don't love me for fun, girl
let me be the one, girl
Love me for a reason
let the reason be love
Don't love me for fun, girl
let me be the one, girl
Love me for a reason
let the reason be love

Kisses and caresses
are only minor tests, babe
of love which it stresses
between a woman and a man
So if love everlasting
isn't what you're asking
I'll have to pass, girl
and proudly take a stand
I can't continue guessing
because it's only messing
up my pride,
up my mind,
so right now it’s time to tell ya.

Don't love me for fun, girl
let me be the one, girl
Love me for a reason
let the reason be love
Don't love me for fun, girl
let me be the one, girl
Love me for a reason
let the reason be love

Oh,
Oh baby, I'm just a little old fashioned
it takes more than a physical attraction
My initial reaction is
honey, give me love
not a facsimile of love

Don't love me for fun, girl
let me be the one, girl
Love me for a reason
let the reason be love
Don't love me for fun, girl
let me be the one, girl
Love me for a reason
let the reason be love

7. Mona Lisa

Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa,
men have named you,
you're so like the lady
with the mystic smile.
Is it only 'cause you're
lonely they have blamed you
for that Mona Lisa
strangeness in your smile

Do you smile to
tempt a lover, Mona Lisa
Or is this your way
to hide a broken heart
Many dreams have been
brought to your doorstep,
they just lie there
and they die there.
Are you warm,
are you real, Mona Lisa
Or just a cold and
lonely, lovely work of art

Oh, Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa,
men have named you,
you're so like the lady
with the mystic smile.
Is it only 'cause you're lonely
they have blamed you
for that Mona Lisa
strangeness in your smile

Do you smile to tempt
a lover, Mona Lisa
Or is this your way
to hide a broken heart
Many dreams have been
brought to your doorstep,
they just lie there
and they die there.
Are you warm,
are you real, Mona Lisa
Or just a cold and
lonely lovely work of art

Or just a cold and lonely
Lovely work of art

Or just a cold and lonely
Lovely work of art

 

8. Donny And Marie Medley

Go away little girl. 
Go away little girl
I’m not supposed
to be alone with you.
Oh 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.

And they called it puppy love. 
Oh I guess they’ll never know.
How a young heart really feels,
and why I love her so.
Oh I cry each night
each night
My tears for you
My tears are all in vain.
I hope and I pray
that maybe some day
You’ll be back
you’ll be back
in my arms
in my arms
Once again

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

Oh yeah
One can have a dream baby,
two can make that dream so real
One can talk about bein’ in love,
two can say how it really feels
One can wish upon a star,
two can make that wish come true
One can stand alone in the dark,
two can make that light shine through

It takes two baby
It takes two baby
It takes two
It just takes two

There was a girl,
there was a boy
If they had met
they might have
found a world of joy
But he lived on the
morning side of the mountain
And she lived on
the twilight side of the hill

For love’s a rose
that never grows
without the kiss
of the mornin’ dew
And every Jack
must have a Jill
to know the thrill
of a dream that comes true.

That’s why I’m leavin’
it all up to you
You decide
what you’re gonna do
Now do you want my love
Or are we through

That’s why I’m leavin’
it all up to you
You decide
what you’re gonna do
Now do you want my love
That’s why I’m leavin’
it all up to you.

I realize the way
your eyes deceived me
With tender looks
that I mistook for love
So take away the flowers
that you gave me
And send the kind
that you remind me of

Paper roses, paper roses
Oh how real those
roses seem to be
But they’re only imitation
Like your imitation love for me.

Who’s sorry now
Who’s sorry now
Whose heart is aching
for breaking each vow
Who’s sad and blue
Who’s crying too
Just like I cried over you

Right to the end,
just like a friend
I tried to warn you somehow
You had your way,
now you must pay
I’m glad that you’re sorry now.

Right to the end,
just like a friend
I tried to warn you somehow
You had your way,
now you must pay
I’m glad that you’re sorry now

Oh yeah

One can have a broken heart,
livin’ in misery
Two can really ease the pain,
like the perfect remedy
Ooo one can really be alone in a crowd,
Liking how it is all alone
Two can make it just any place,
just like bein’ home

It takes two baby,
it takes two baby
It takes two. 
It just takes two

It takes two.

9. Make The World Go Away

Make the world go away,
get it off of my shoulders.
Say the things you used to say,
and make the world go away.

Do you remember
when you loved me,
before the world took me astray
If you do, then forgive me,
and make the world go away

Make the world go away,
get it off of my shoulders.
Say the things you used to say,
and make the world go away.

Oh, I'm sorry if I hurt you,
I'll make it up day by day.
Just say you’ll love me
like you used to,
and make the world go away.

Make the world go away,
get it off of my shoulders.
Say the things you used to say,
and make the world go away.

1. The Proud One

Living is dyin’,
'cause love, you've
left me cryin’
Now there's no use
trying to go on.
Each night I dream,
baby, pretending,
there'll be a happy endin’.
Burning down deep inside,
got a heartbreak
that I can't hide.

I'm not the proud one,
I need you,
I'm begging to you,
baby, please.
You're the proud one,
believe me,
this poor man is down
on his knees, baby please.

Oh baby, remember
the love we shared so tender
Hoping that forever
you'll be mine.
I wish you could

If only you were near me.

lover from Liverpool

daisy on a mountaintop
There were lots of
other flowers too

hung there heads and cried
Because the loveliest

But you were evidently
the exception to the rule
I picked you quickly
then I ran away
‘Cause I was your long-haired
lover from Liverpool
You’ll be my sunshine
daisy from L.A.

World keep on turnin’
‘Cause it won’t be too long.

Oh here I am baby, oh yeah
Signed, sealed, delivered,

Very superstitious
the writings on the wall
Very superstitious,
ladder’s ’bout to fall
Thirteen month old baby
Broke the lookin’ glass
Seven years of bad luck
The good things in the past
When you believe in things
that you don’t understand
Don’t you know
you’re gonna suffer
Ah, superstition ain’t the way
Ah, superstition ain’t the way

For once in my life
I have someone who needs me
Someone I’ve needed so long,
For one, unafraid, I can
go where life leads me
Somehow I know I’ll be strong
For once I can touch what
my heart used to dream of
Long before I knew
Oh, someone warm like you
Oh could make my dreams come true,
yeah yeah yeah yeah
For once in my life
I won’t let sorrow hurt me
Not like it’s hurt me before
For once unafraid I can go
where life leads me
I’m not alone anymore
For once I can say
this is mine you can’t take it
Long as I know I have
love I can make it
For once in my life
I have someone who needs
Someone who needs me. 
Someone who needs me.

(Band Intro)

For once I can say

Someone who needs me
(you are the sunshine of my life)
Someone who needs me
(oh yeah yeah)
Someone who needs me
You are the sunshine of my life,
yeah

4. Are You Lonesome Tonight

Are you lonesome tonight
Do you miss me tonight
Are you sorry we drifted apart
Does your memory stray
To a bright summer day
When I kissed you and
called you sweetheart

Do the chairs in your parlor
Seem empty and bare
Do you gaze at your doorstep
And picture me there
 
Is your heart filled with pain
Shall I come back again
Tell me dear
are you lonesome tonight

Speaking:
I wonder if you’re lonesome tonight.
You know someone once said
that the world’s a stage
And each must play a part
Fate had me playing in love
with you as my sweetheart

Act one was when we met
You read your lines so cleverly
and never missed a cue
Then came act two
You seemed to change,
you acted strange,
And why I’ll never know.

Honey, you lied when
you said you loved me
And I had no cause to doubt you
But I’d rather go on
hearing your lies
Than to go on
living without you.

Now the stage is bare,
and I’m standing there
With emptiness all around
And if you don’t
come back to me
Then they can bring
the curtain down.

Is your heart filled with pain,
Shall I come back again
Tell me dear are
you lonesome tonight
(lonesome tonight)

I found my thrill
On Blueberry Hill
On Blueberry Hill
When I found you

The wind in the willow played
Love’s sweet melody
But all of the vows we made
Were never to be

Blue moon
You saw me standing alone
With all the dreams in their heart
With all the love of

Blue moon
You know what I was there for
I said a little prayer for
With all the love of
Blue moon

Lucille, please come back
where you belong
Lucille, please come back
where you belong

Rock and roll is here to stay,
Rock ‘n roll
Yeah, rock ‘n roll
Yeah, rock ‘n roll

Rock ‘n roll
