Fairground Attraction – Perfect

I don’t want half hearted love affairs
I need someone who really cares.
Life is too short to play silly games
I’ve promised myself I won’t do that again.

It’s got to be perfect
It’s got to be worth it
yeah.
Too many people take second best
But I won’t take anything less
It’s got to be
yeah
pertect.

Young hearts are foolish
they make such mistakes
They’re much too eager to give their love away.
Well
I have been foolish too many times
Now I’m determined I’m gonna get it right.

It’s got to be perfect
It’s got to be worth it
yeah.
Too many people take second best
But I won’t take anything less
It’s got to be
yeah
pertect.

Dessert loving in your eyes all the way
If I listen to your lies, would you say
I’m a man without conviction
I’m a man who doesn’t know
How to sale a contradiction?
You come and go, you come and go
Karma, karma, karma, karma, karma chameleon
You come and go, you come and go
Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams
Red, gold, and green, red, gold, and green
Didn’t you hear your wicked words every day
And you used to be so sweet I heard you say
That my love was an addiction
When we cling, our love is strong
When you go, you’re gone forever
You string along, you string along
Karma, karma, karma, karma, karma chameleon
You come and go, you come and go
Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams
Red, gold, and green, red, gold, and green
Every day is like survival
You’re my lover, not my rival
Every day is like survival
You’re my lover, not my rival
I’m a man without conviction
I’m a man who doesn’t know
How to sale a contradiction?
You come and go, you come and go
Karma, karma, karma, karma, karma chameleon
You come and go, you come and go
Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams
Red, gold, and green, red, gold, and green
Karma, karma, karma, karma, karma chameleon
You come and go, you come and go
Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams
Red, gold, and green, red, gold, and green
Karma, karma, karma, karma, karma chameleon
You come and go, you come and go
Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams
Red, gold, and green, red, gold, and green
Karma, karma, karma, karma, karma chameleon
You come and go, you come and go
Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams
Red, gold, and green, red, gold, and green

Walking On Sunshine /w Lyrics – Katrina & The Waves

Ow

Mm, yeah
I used to think maybe you loved me, now, baby, I’m sure
And I just can’t wait till the day when you knock on my door
Now every time I go for the mailbox, gotta hold myself down
‘Cause I just can’t wait till you write me you’re coming around

Now I’m walking on sunshine, whoa
I’m walking on sunshine, whoa
I’m walking on sunshine, whoa
And don’t it feel good
Hey, all right now
And don’t it feel good
Hey, yeah

I used to think maybe you loved me, now I know that it’s true
And I don’t want to spend my whole life just a-waiting for you
Now, I don’t want you back for the weekend, not back for a day, no, no, no
I said, baby, I just want you back, and I want you to stay

Oh, yeah, now I’m walking on sunshine, whoa
I’m walking on sunshine, whoa
I’m walking on sunshine, whoa
And don’t it feel good
Hey, all right now
And don’t it feel good
Yeah, oh, yeah, now
And don’t it feel good

Walking on sunshine
Walking on sunshine

I feel alive, I feel the love, I feel the love that’s really real
I feel alive, I feel the love, I feel the love that’s really real
I’m on sunshine, baby, oh
Oh, yeah, I’m on sunshine, baby

Oh, I’m walking on sunshine, whoa
I’m walking on sunshine, whoa
I’m walking on sunshine, whoa
And don’t it feel good
Hey, all right now

I’ll say it, I’ll say it, I’ll say it again now
And don’t it feel good

Now don’t it, don’t it, don’t it, don’t it, don’t it, don’t it

Dire Straits – Twisting By The Pool

We’re going on a holiday now
Gonna take a villa, a small chalet
Costa del Magnifico
Yo, cost of living is so low

Yeah, gonna be so neat
Dance to the Euro beat
Yeah, gonna be so cool
Twisting by the, twisting by the
By the pool

We’re twisting by the pool
We’re twisting by the pool

Swing, swing, swingin’ to the cabaret
You wanna see a movie, take in a show now
Meet new people at the disco

Twisting by the, we’re twisting by the
By the pool

Twisting by the pool
Twisting by the pool
Yeah, twisting, twisting by the pool

And we can still get information
Reading all about inflation
And you’re never gonna be out of reach
There’s a call-box on the beach

So one, a two
A one, a two, a three
Alright

We’re just twisting by the pool
And we’re twisting by the pool
You got me twisting by the pool
Yeah, twisting, twisting by the pool

You’re gonna look so cute
Sunglasses and bathing suites
Be the baby of my dreams
Like the ladies in the magazine

Yeah, gonna be so neat
Dance to the Euro beat
Oh yeah, gonna be so cool
Twisting by the, we’re just twisting by the
Oh, by the pool, twisting by the pool

I’m a twisting fool
Just twisting, yeah twisting
Twisting by the pool

Everybody got to do the twisting by the pool
And we’re twisting by the pool
You got me twisting by the pool
Oh, twisting, twisting by the pool

And we’re twisting by the pool
You got me twisting by the pool
Oh, twisting, twisting by the pool

Everybody got to do the twisting by the pool

I’m twisting fool
Come and do the twisting by the pool
Twisting, twisting by the pool
