Track Name: Smile
Though I smiled yesterday
You know that I'm not gonna smile anymore today
Oh how I miss you
I long to kiss you

Until you're back with me
I'm never gonna smile anymore

Though I laughed yesterday
You know that I'm not gonna laugh anymore today
I get so lonely
I love you only

Until you're back with me
I'm never gonna smile anymore

And baby, every day without you
Is a day that's gonna turn out wrong
I need you, need your love so badly
So won't you...

Like I smiled yesterday
I don't wanna cry anymore like I cried today
I need your lovin'
Your tender lovin'

Until you're back with me
I'm never gonna smile anymore

And baby, every day without you
Is a day that's gonna turn out wrong
I need you, need your love so badly
So won't you...
Track Name: Boys
We try to fly
Is it so high
We don't think so
We don't think so

Are we looked at
Are we set back
Can we fake him
Emulate him

Time is breaking
Changing faking
Grind us up now
Not too hard now

Features so fine
Rouge and eyeline
Things I fancy
Just like Nancy

Fashion's alter
Often falter
Crypso's out now
No more fights now

Makeup's taking
Lots of shaping
On my eyelash
You sure it don't clash

Slim line trousers
Facial powders
Flooding my mind
You sure there's no line

Eye me up now
Pamper me now
Please don't pass by
Or I shall cry
Track Name: Swing
Tell me when the work is done
Tell me when the day is through
And I'll drive safely inside my car
Taking islands in Africa

Shout if someone gets too near
I'll know just what I ought to do
And I'll arrive safely inside my car
Taking islands in Africa

Now your feet are back on the ground
Again, she'll say the weather's dear
But relax my love

Relax and swing

Things you say are not too clear
I'm someone you'd neither know nor care
And I'll sit here and watch from afar
Taking islands in Africa

Now your feet are back on the ground
Again, she'll say the weather's dear
But relax my love

Relax and swing
Track Name: Move
Sometimes I feel
the need to move on
So I pack a bag and move on
Well I might take a train
Or sail at dawn
I might take a girl when I move on

Somewhere someone's calling me
When the chips are down
I'm just a travellin' man
Well maybe it's just a trick of the mind
Somewhere there's a morning sky
Bluer than her eyes
Somewhere there's an ocean
Innocent and wild

Africa is sleepy people
Russia has its horsemen
Spent some nights in old Kyoto
Sleeping on the matted ground
Cyprus is my island
When the going's rough
I would hope to find you
Somewhere in a place like that

Somewhere someone's calling me
When the chips are down
I stumble like a blind man
Can't forget you, can't forget you
Feeling like a shadow
Trembling like a leaf
I stumble like a blind man
Can't forget you, can't forget you
Track Name: Sing
The harpy was the tops
Who's hair contained some red
Thin white skeleton
Just too good in bed

He-mother from the circus
Put her on junior show time
Her father was much worse
I can't put why in this line

And in the little village
She was without malice
She left the moors behind her
And the beige heather
Packed her placky bag
With blocks of brown cannabis

Ascend harpy
Sing harpy

She took a lousy Wednesday
Turned it into cold spring
She got taller by the minute
She could sell you anything

Ascend harpy
Descend harpy
Sing harpy

And the morning after
I was quite astonished
She gripped me like a hawk
Her talons where quite famished

Send me harpy
