Track Name: SUNSHINE EVERYDAY
Woke up feeling good today
Looked out my window
You were walking my way
Wind in your hair
And a smile on your face
My blues were gone
Without a trace

Oh, the darkness of Winter has gone
Spring has finally come
You can take my blues away
You bring me sunshine everyday

I'm sure that it's you who's the reason
Why I'm so glad
Oh, it's not just the season
One look at you
When you looked that way
All the coldness melts away

You can take my blues away
And away they will always stay
Cos with you I have to be
You bring me sunshine
Can't you see?

There's rain outside
And dark clouds up above
I don't see them
All I see is the love
It's there in your eyes
And a warmth from your touch
You brought me the sunshine
That I needed so much

Oh, the darkness of Winter has gone
Spring has finally come
You can take my blues away
and away they will always stay
You bring me sunshine everyday
You brought me the sunshine everyday
Oh, yes you did! Everyday...
you bring me sunshine everyday
Everyday!
Track Name: MR OPERATOR
It's early in the morning
An' I'm sitting by the phone
Nothing's on the TV
Just reminds me I'm alone
Another cup of coffee
Maybe helps to pass the time
While I'm sitting here just waiting
At the end of the line

Seems I can't stop thinking
'Bout those angry words we said
and the sound of her slamming the door
Keeps echoing round in my head
Mr Operator, connect me if you can

Tried all the usual numbers
No one seems to know
Can't think what to do now
Where in the world would she go?
Mr Operator, please connect me if you can
I'd do anything at all
This pain I can't withstand

Seems I can't stop thinking
'Bout those angry words we said
and the sound of her slamming the door
Keeps echoing round in my head
Mr Operator, connect me if you can

Wanna get my baby back (get my baby)
Wanna get my baby back (get my baby)
Wanna get my baby back (get my baby)
Wanna get my baby back (get my baby)
Track Name: THE MEANING
You got my head a' reelin'
With things I don't know about
i got this funny feeling
i could do without
Since you left me, Baby
Left me high and dry
I sit alone each night
And I wonder why

What's it all about
I guess I'll never know
What's it all about
No one seems to know

I guess we'll never
Never find the meaning
No we'll never
find no rhyme or reason
No we'll never
Never find the meaning

Tryna find the reason
Where did i go wrong
Why you took to leaving
Baby, why you've gone
Why you've left this feeling
Burning in my heart
I love you till the end
And i loved you from the start

What's it all about
I guess I'll never know
What's it all about
No one seems to know

I guess we'll never
Never find the meaning
No we'll never
find no rhyme or reason
No we'll never
Never find the meaning

Ooh, Baby, Baby
You know you drive me crazy
You know I'm missing you
And there's nothing that I can do

I guess we'll never
Never find the meaning
No we'll never
find no rhyme or reason
No we'll never
Never find the meaning
Track Name: WHEN THE KETTLE BOILS
What will we do?
What will we do?
What will we do when the kettle boils over?

In the US of A oh oh and in Eurasia
There are some mad men
Who wish to blow us all away, sir
The world is so full of sorrow and uncertainty
We must be concerned
Oh oh there's so much to be learned
They say that two and two is five
And all that jive
But we know that two and two is four
we wanna make a little love not war
And if I'm wrong then I stand accused
Of loving you while the kettle boils
over and over and over and over and over again

I say
What will we do?
What will we do?
What will we do when the kettle boils over?
What will we do?
What will we do?
What will we do when the kettle boils over?

Will the silicone chip
stop the suffering and starvation in Africa
Do the gentleman of the Pentagon know that
There is no rice to save the babies in Ethiopia
From the depths of my soul
I search for an answer
To the question of pain
But when a smile like yours
Makes me swift and sway
I stand accused of loving you
Of loving you while the kettle boils
over and over and over and over and over again

I say
What will we do?
What will we do?
What will we do when the kettle boils over?
What will we do?
What will we do?
What will we do when the kettle boils over?
Track Name: SERIOUS
I know you need some time
To be on your own just to think
You're so important to me
But I don't wanna watch you sink
I know you get lonely
I Can see it in your eyes
So take a deep breath, Baby
You must own up and get wise

If it's serious
Be honest with yourself
Stand up and be loved
Be good to yourself
If it's serious
Be honest with yourself
Stand up and be loved
Be good to yourself

When you feel a little stronger
Will you come on over to me?
I won't ever hurt you, Darling
Please don't try to fool me
I know that you get lonely
I Can see it in your eyes
I'm confessing to you now, girl
Oh, that without you I might die

If it's serious
Be honest with yourself
Stand up and be loved
Be good to yourself
If it's serious
Be honest with yourself
Stand up and be loved
Be good to yourself
Track Name: FOR THE CHILDREN
There is a child somewhere
Who could feel better
There's a dream somewhere
That could come true
There is a grey day waiting
Waiting to be brightened
There is a hand to hold
And not feel frightened
There are some broken hearts
That need mending
There are some attitudes
That need bending

Don't have to move no mountain
Just think what you could do!
Remember the pleasure from a smile
Oh, and think for a while
Of all the things you can do
Just give everything that is inside of you
And give a little time
For the children

Let's sing
Na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na
Let's give a little more
For the the children

Let's sing
Na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Let's do it right
Na na na na
Let's give a little more
For the the children

There is a heavy load
Yeah, could be lightened
On those dark nights
Don't feel frightened
There is some food somewhere
Being wasted
While there's caviar somewhere
I know is being wasted!
There is an empty soul
Waiting for a hold
Just a touch from you
Could be like the dust of gold

Don't have to move no mountain
Just think what you could do!
Remember the pleasure from a smile
Oh, and think for a while yeah, yeah
Of all the things you can do
Just give everything that is inside of you
Oh, and give a little time
For the children

Let's sing
Na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na
Let's give a little more
For the the children

Let's sing
Na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Let's do it right
Na na na na
Let's give a little more
For the the children
Track Name: LIVIN' AN' LOVIN'
All the lonely nights I'd had
Before we met my life was sad
Now when I'm down I think of you
I thank the Lord
He sent me someone
Who seems to know when I need a little lovin'
You're my sweet love....

All the moments spent with
Makes me feel so complete
I love have you by my side
You make my world seem so sweet
You know you got me reelin'
You're my sweet love....

I wanna keep on livin' an' lovin'
Just for you - no matter what you do
Cos I love you, Baby!

I wanna keep on livin' an' lovin'
Just for you - no matter what you do
Cos I love you, Darlin' - yes I do!

You're my sweet, sweet, sweet
Something I could eat
You're my nectar tea
Honey to a bee
Seasonin' in my stew
You're my perfect brew
You're my strawberry cream
Everything I dream

You're my night an' day
My road to Mandalay
Shortenin' in my pie
Sunshine in my sky
You're my super glue
I will stick by you
You're my case of wine
Chateau '69

You're the blossom on a tree
You're the sweetest thing to me
You're everything you possibly could be
For me!
I know you know when I need a little lovin'
You're my sweet love....

An when I think of days gone by
I sit an' wonder why
Why I spent so long alone
Now I thank the Lord
He sent me someone
Who seems to know when I need a little bit of lovin'
You're my sweet love....

I wanna keep on livin' an' lovin'
Just for you - no matter what you do
Cos I love you, Baby!

I wanna keep on livin' an' lovin'
Just for you - no matter what you do
Cos I love you, Darlin' - yes I do!
You're my sweet, sweet, sweet
Something I could eat
You're my nectar tea
Honey to a bee
Seasonin' in my stew
You're my perfect brew
You're my strawberry cream
Everything I dream

You're my night an' day
My road to Mandalay
Shortenin' in my pie
Sunshine in my sky
You're my super glue
I will stick by you
You're my case of wine
Chateau '69

Livin' an' Lovin' just for you
Livin' an' lovin'
Livin' an' Lovin' just for you
Livin' an' lovin' - yes I am!
Track Name: SOUL WITHIN
If you've got soul within
You won't go without
Not money and fast cars
That's not what it's about
Said I bin there, done that
There was something wrong
So I sat down with myself
I had a soul to find...

So look for the soul in yourself
Don't take the dark from nobody else
You'll know where to find it
So stick with it and ride it

When you know right from wrong
I truly believe you'll be strong
Oh, your heart will feel free
That's the way it should be

So look for the soul in yourself
Don't take the dark from nobody else
You'll know where to find it
So stick with it and ride it

If you've got soul within
I believe you'll be strong
If you've got soul within
You will never, never, never, never, never, never
Go wrong

I believe if you've got soul
You'll never - never go wrong
I believe if you've got soul
You will never - never be without

When you know right from wrong
I truly believe you'll be strong
Oh, your heart will feel free
That's the way it should be

So look for the soul in yourself
Don't take the dark from nobody else
You'll know where to find it
So stick with it oh, and ride it

If you've got soul within
Don't deny it, you'll find
If you've got soul within
Don't deny it, you'll find

I believe if you've got soul
You'll be strong and never go wrong
You're heart will feel free
That's the way it should be....
Track Name: SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL
Every morning when I wake up
I have to face another day
Searching for that something
That I just can't describe
Can't move my head from this pillow
Cos I'm so troubled in my mind
Truth is that I'm lonely
Yes, I am

I'm tired and I'm sad
And I've wasted
Most of the time I've ever had
Oh, but now I've found me
Something beautiful
I call it love
Found me something quite beautiful
Yes, it's love!

Every evening when I break up
I have to face another night
Waiting for tomorrow
When everything will seem alright
Still can't move my head from this pillow
Cos I'm so troubled in my mind
The truth is that I'm lonely
Yes, I am

I'm tired and I'm sad
And I've wasted
Most of the time I've ever had
Oh, but now I've found me
Something beautiful
I call it love
Found me something quite beautiful
Yes, it's love!

I found me love
Oh, yes I found me love
Found me love

Love, love, love, love, love

Yes, it's good for me
Good for my soul

Said I found me love
Oh, whoa, love
Yes, I got love
Sweet careless love
Don'cha know I got love
I'll say it again
Love!
I've got love, love, love, love, love!
Mmmm Mmmm!
