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...

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

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

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

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
