SOMETHING ELSE
Hey look at there
Here she comes
Here comes that girl again
Wanted to date her since I don’t know when
She don’t notice me when I pass
She goes with other guys that are outta my class
But that can’t stop me from a-thinkin’ to myself
She’s sure fine lookin’ man
She’s somethin’ else

Hey lookee there across the street
There’s a car made just for me
To own a car would be a luxury
But right now I can’t afford the gas
A brand new convertible is outta my class
But that can’t stop me from a-thinkin’ to myself
That car’s fine lookin’ man
It’s somethin’ else

Hey look at here
Just wait and see
Work hard and save my dough
I’ve got the car that I’ve been wantin’ so
Get me the girl, we’ll go ridin’ around
We’ll look real sharp with the white top down
I’ll keep right on a-dreamin’ and a-thinkin’ to myself
When it all comes true man, wow
That’s somethin’ else

Hey lookit here
What’s all this
Never thought I’d do this before
Here I am knockin’ down your door
My car’s out front and baby it’s all mine
A ’41 Ford not a ’59
I got that gal and I’m a-thinkin’ to myself
She’s sure fine lookin’ man, wow
She’s somethin’ else

 

OH BOY
Well, all of my lovin’ all of my kissin’
You don’t know what you’ve been missin’, oh boy
Oh boy – When you’re with me, oh boy (oh boy)
All the world can see that you were meant for me

All of my life baby I’ve been waitin’
Tonight there’ll be no hesitatin’, oh boy
Oh boy – When you’re with me, oh boy (oh boy)
All the world can see that you were meant for me

You can you hear my heart a-callin’
A little bit of lovin’ makes everything right
I’m a-gonna see my baby tonight

Well, all of my lovin’ all of my kissin’
You don’t know what you’ve been missin’, oh boy
Oh boy – When you’re with me, oh boy (oh boy)
Well, all the world can see that you baby baby baby baby were meant for me

All of my lovin’ all of my kissin’
You don’t know what you’ve been missin’, oh boy
Oh boy – When you’re with me, oh boy (oh boy)
All the world can see that you were meant for me

All of my life baby I’ve been waitin’
Tonight it’s gonna be no hesitatin’, oh boy
Oh boy – When you’re with me, oh boy (oh boy)
All the world can see that you baby baby baby baby were meant for me

Now stars appear and shadows are fallin’
You can you hear my heart a-callin’
A little bit of lovin’ makes everything right

Oh boy – When you’re with me, oh boy (oh boy)
All the world can see that you were meant for me
That you were meant for me

 

TWENTY FLIGHT ROCK
Ooh, well, I got a gal with a record machine
When it comes to rockin’ she’s a queen
We love to dance on Saturday night
All alone I can hold her tight
But she’s lives on the twentieth floor uptown
The elevator’s broken down

So I walk 1, 2 flight, 3 flight, 4
5, 6, 7 flight, 8 flight more
Up on the twelfth floor startin’ to drag
Fifteenth floor I’m a-ready to sag
Get to the top, I’m too tired to rock

Well, she calls me up on the telephone
Come on over honey, I’m all alone
I said baby, you’re mighty sweet
But I’m in bed with achin’ feet
This went on for a couple of days
But I couldn’ t stay away

So I walk 1, 2 flight, 3 flight, 4
5, 6, 7 flight, 8 flight more
Up on the twelfth floor startin’ to drag
Fifteenth floor I’m a-ready to sag
Get to the top, I’m too tired to rock

We havin’ fun yet?

Well, they sent it to Chicago for repairs
Til it’s fixed I’m usin’ the stairs
I hope they hurry before it’s too late
I want my baby too much to wait
All this a-climbin’ is getting’ me down
They’ll find my corpse draped over a rail

So I walk 1, 2 flight, 3 flight, 4
5, 6, 7 flight, 8 flight more
Up on the twelfth floor startin’ to drag
Fifteenth floor I’ m a-ready to sag
Get to the top, I’ m too tired to rock

Ooh, I got a gal with a record machine
When it comes to rockin’ she’s a queen
We love to dance on Saturday night
All alone I can hold her tight
But she’s lives on the twentieth floor uptown
The elevator’s broken down

So I walk 1, 2 flight, 3 flight, 4
5, 6, 7 flight, 8 flight more
Well, up on the twelfth floor startin’ to drag
Fifteenth floor I’m a-ready to sag
Get to the top, I’m too tired to rock

 

I FOUGHT THE LAW
Breaking rocks in the hot sun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

Well, I needed money ‘cause I had none
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

Well, I miss my baby and I feel so bad
I guess my race is run
She’s the best friend I ever had
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

Well, I’m robbin’ people with a six gun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

Well, I miss my baby and the good fun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

Well, I miss my baby and I feel so bad
I guess my race is run
She’s the best friend I ever had
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

 

LONESOME TEARS
Lonesome tears sad and blue
I cried lonesome tears for you
Well, you know I know I cried
When you said goodbye

When you left and said I’m gone
Lonesome tears fell all night long

Hear me callin’, won’t you come back home
Love me like you did before
Now need I tell you more

Don’t want you looking at other guys
Got to make you give me one more chance

CAN’T HELP FALLING IN LOVE
Wise men say only fools rush in
But I can’t help falling in love with you

Shall I stay, would it be a sin
If I can’t help falling in love with you

Like the river flows surely to the sea
Darling, so it goes – some things are meant to be
Take my hand, take my whole life too
For I can’t help falling in love with you

Like the river flows surely to the sea
Darling, so it goes – some things are meant to be
Take my hand, take my whole life too
For I can’t help falling in love with you

 

FLYIN’ SAUCERS ROCK N ROLL
Well, the news of the saucer been flying around
Having a walk I’ve seen it on the ground
First thing I see when I saw it land
A cat jumped out and he started a band

Flying saucer rock and roll
Flying saucer rock and roll
I couldn’t understand a thing they said
But the crazy beat just knocked me dead

Well, the little green men they were real hepcats
Rockin’ and rollin’ to the crazy flats
Brought out a sax and started to blow
Brought out a drum and started to roll

Flying saucer rock and roll
Flying saucer rock and roll
I couldn’t understand a thing they said
It was the crazy beat just knocked me dead

Well, I come outta my hidin’ and started to rock
The little green men tought me how to do the bop
They were three foot high, we hit a few bars

Flying saucer rock and roll
Flying saucer rock and roll
I couldn’t understand a thing they said
It was the crazy beat just knocked me dead

 

TRAIN KEPT A ROLLIN’
I caught a train, I met a dame
She was a hipster and a real gone girl
She was pretty from New York City
And we trucked on down that old fairlane
With a hi and a ho, well I still couldn’t let her go

Get along, tricky little woman get along
You better be on your way get along
Sweet little woman get along, be on your way
With a hi and a ho, I just couldn’t let her go

Well, the train kept a rollin’ (all night long)
Train kept a rollin’ (all night long)
Train kept a rollin’ (all the night long)
Train kept a rollin’ (all night long)
With a hi and a ho, I just couldn’t let her go

We made a stop in Albuquerque
She musta thought that I was real gone jerk
We got off the train at El Paso
But love was so good Jack, I couldn’t let her go
So get along, I just couldn’t let her go

Well, the train kept a rollin’ (all night long)
Train kept a rollin’ (all night long)
Train kept a rollin’ (all the night long)
Train kept a rollin’ (all night long)
With a hi and a ho, I still couldn’t let her go
Well, the train kept a rollin’ (all night long)
Train kept a rollin’ (all night long)
Train kept a rollin’ (all the night long)
Train kept a rollin’ (all night long)
With a hi and a ho, I still couldn’t let her go

 

STOOD UP
Well, I’ve been waiting ever since eight
I guess my baby’s got another date
Stood up broken hearted again

Well, I’ll bet she’s out having a ball
Not even thinking of me at all
Stood up broken hearted again

Well, I know just what I ought do
I ought find somebody new
But baby I couldn’t forget about you
Stood up broken hearted again
Stood up broken hearted again

Why must I always be the one
Left behind never having any fun
Stood up broken hearted again

I guess I’ll go on being a fool
Sitting around just waiting for you
Stood up broken hearted again

Well, I know just what I ought do
I ought find somebody new
But baby I couldn’t forget about you
Stood up broken hearted again

Well, I know just what I ought do
I ought find somebody new
But baby I couldn’t forget about you
Stood up broken hearted again
Stood up broken hearted again
Stood up broken hearted again

 

LET IT ROCK
In the heat of the day, down in Mobile, Alabama
Working on the railroad with a steel driving hammer
Gotta make some money buy some brand new shoes
Gotta find somebody to take away these blues
She don’t love me, hear me singing in the sun
Pay day’s coming when the work is all done

Early in the evening when the sun is sinking low
All day I’ve been waiting for the whistle to blow
Sitting in a teepee building right on the tracks
Rolling them bones till the foreman comes back
Pick up your belongings, boys scattered around
We gotta all set the train coming two miles out

Everybody’s scampering and jumping around
Picking up the money tearing the teepee down
A foreman is in panic about to go insane
Trying to get the workers outa the way of the train
The engineer’s blowing his whistle loud and long
You can’t stop the train you gotta let it roll on

Roll on, roll on, roll on
Let it rock, let it rock
Roll on, roll on, roll on boy

 

TRYING TO GET TO YOU
I’ve been travelling over mountains
Even through the valleys too
I’ve been travelling night and day
I’ve been running all the way
Baby, trying to get to you

Ever since I read your letter
Where you said you love me true
I’ve been travelling night and day
I’ve been running all the way
Baby, trying to get to you

When I read your loving letter
Then my heart began to sing
There were many miles between us
But they didn’t mean a thing

I just had to reach you baby
In spite of all that I’ve been through
I kept travelling night and day
I kept running all the way
Baby, trying to get to you

There was nothing that could hold me
Or keep me away from you
When your loving letter told me
That you really love me true
Lord above me knows I love you
It was he who brought me through
When my way was dark as night
He would shine his brightest light
Baby, trying to get to you

If I had to do it over
That’s exactly what I’d do
I would travel night and day
I would still run all the way
When I was trying to get to you
