lyrics

 

Vacation

Can't seem to get my mind off of you
Back here at home there's nothin' to do
Now that I'm away
I wish I'd stayed
Tomorrow's a day of mine
that you won't be in

When you looked at me I should've run
But I thought it was just for fun
I see I was wrong
And I'm not so strong
I should've known all along
that time would tell

A week without you
Thought I'd forget
Two weeks without you and I
Still haven't gotten over you yet

CHORUS
Vacation
All I ever wanted
Vacation
Had to get away
Vacation
Meant to be spent alone

A week without you
Thought I'd forget
Two weeks without you and I
Still haven't gotten over you yet

CHORUS


 

He's So Strange

He's coming out tonight
He'll walk outside the light
You'll feel him very near
Confusion nothing's clear
His presence cold and stark
Like a shadow in the dark
You're scared but you won't run
You almost wish it was over and done

CHORUS
You can't escape the thought of him
Do you wonder why?
He's so strange
And if he brought you down to your knees
Would you cry?
He's so strange
He frightens you so much
He could burn you with his touch
Everything has changed
He's so strange

You've lost all track of time
The victim of a crime
He's stolen heart and soul
He's taken all control
Is this some crazy dream?
Obsession the main theme
Though you can't see the chains
You're the prisoner of a love so strange

CHORUS
Girl Of 100 Lists

Ghetto blasters, phony jewels
Cathedrals, castles, making up rules
Trashy novels and leather gloves
This is a list of the things I love

CHORUS
I am the girl of 100 lists
From what shall I wear
To who I have kissed
Check items off
Let nothing be missed
Sing I to myself and my 100 lists

Pick up your laundry, doctor's at ten
We're out of toothpaste, rehearsal (again)
Stop by the bank and cash my pay
These are the things I must get done today

CHORUS

Ricky and Danny and Terry and Jim
Dean lasted six months-don't forget him
Perhaps some day this list will end
Till then I tally my gentlemen friends

CHORUS
We Don't Get Along

I'm not very serious
You want me to be straight
I'm not out of time
But you think I'm too late
I'm not feeling desperate
You think I can't wait

CHORUS
Somehow you always get me wrong
Somehow you always take things wrong
Somehow you always get me wrong
Well I guess we just don't get along

You always go to sleep
When I stay up all night
You say I'm wrong
When I'm thinkin' you're alright
I just wanna talk things over
You just wanna fight

CHORUS

You leave me broken
And you don't realize
Everything is O.K.
And then you apologize
The things that really matter to me
They just pass you by

CHORUS

I Think It's Me


Can't take anymore
My head's spinning 'round
Goin' back and forth
Goin' up and down

CHORUS
Don't know where I stand
Someone always loves a little more
And I think it's me

Sometimes I think you care
And then you don't
Then I think you will
And then you won't

CHORUS

Wonderin' why I feel this way
Could it be something that you said
Or is it just some daydream
When I think of you and me
Then I see you pass me by
With that certain look in your eye
Now I'm back where I began
Not knowin' where I stand-I think it's me

Go ahead now
Take a chance
Don't worry 'bout losin' another romance

CHORUS

 

 

 

It's Everything But Partytime

This is the place for celebrating
This is the crowd that's fascinating
This is the time for concentrating
To hear some words worth translating

He's rapping 'bout his meditating
She's dying for some medicating
And though I shouldn't be complaining
What's lacking here is entertaining

CHORUS
We're all looking for a good time
But what we get is empty rhyme
When everything's right but nothing's fine
It's everything but partytime

Talk about decorating
A room that needs sophisticating
When coversations become straining
No one's good at interest feigning

CHORUS
Get Up and Go

If you get up and walk away
Leave the past behind
Go ahead and take a ride
No telling what you'll find

The words you say don't mean a thng
They fly right by my eyes
Lokin the mirror don't look at me
Maybe then you'll realize

CHORUS
So get up and go
If you're so tired of moving slow

I was on the inside
Looking out for you
But you're the one to make the change
There's nothing I can do

Now's the time for you to move
Actions shout out loud
So cut the talk and move your feet
Cuz words get lost in crowds

CHORUS

Quit talking
Start walking now
This Old Feeling

This old feeling
It's new to me
I'm not sure
How I should be
I'd tattoo my vow
For all to see
To prove how much
You mean to me

A million times said
In as many songs
But before you
I could never sing along
I love you
I do
I love you
I do

This old feeling
It's got me up
I can't believe
My good luck
I'd wait at your door
Till eternity
Because you mean
That much to me

Cool Jerk

Cool Jerk
Cool Jerk
Cool Jerk
Cool Jerk

Well I know a cat who can really do the cool jerk
I know a cat who can really do the cool jerk
Well this cat that you're talkin' about
Has nothing, nothing on me
'Cuz I know I'm the heppest cat
The heppest cat that ever could be

CHORUS
Well they see me walkin' down the street
The say hey!
All them fellas drop to their knees
I'm the reason that they don't smirk
Cuz they know I'm the queen of the cool jerk

Cool jerk
Cool jerk
Cool jerk
Cool jerk

Okay girls...break it down!
Bring it down reeeeeeeaaaalll low
Uh-huh, well that's right

Now, I know a lot of you out there are thinkin'
Man, are those girls fools?
When way deep down inside
You know we're way cool
Now Gina, hon, she beats that drum
Oh man, she beat it mean
That mighty sound will shake the ground
C'mon and do your thing

Right now!
Oh that sounds good
I wanna hear some of that bad, bad bass
A one, a two, a one two three four
You're playin' baby
C'mon everybody
I wanna hear you all

Can you do
Can you do can you do can you do can you do
Can you do can you do can you do can you do
Can you do can you do can you do can you do
The cool jerk
C'mon people
Cool Jerk

CHORUS

Cool Jerk
C'mon people
Cool Jerk
We're runnin' now
Cool Jerk
Hey, hey
Cool Jerk!

 

 

The Way You Dance

The way you dance
You move in self romance
And you don't see me watch
The way you dance
Your eyes close in a trance
So you don't see me watching

People in this place just seem to stand around
Flashing cash they eye each other up and down
You're all alone out on the floor
The music spins you 'round
It's all you came here for

CHORUS

I see the night it's slipping by and every song
Takes me closer to the time when you'll be gone
How can I get through
Don't wanna break the spell
I just want to dance with you

CHORUS
Beatnik Beach

Dance to the poetry
It's gonna be just you and me
We'll groove on that groovy beat
It'll be boss keen neat yeah

The gang they'll all be there
Join the fun and don't be a square
We'll lipsync a go-go
Just like the Lloyd Thaxton show yeah

CHORUS
Beatnik Beach
It's really neat
Limbo down
Hit the ground

Put on your paisleys
Put on your black beret too
Join all us beatniks
Nothing better could happen to you yeah

CHORUS

Worlds Away

Walking around it's clear
I'm worlds away
Thinking with only half my mind
Found myself wanting
To be asleep
To be sleeping
To be dreaming
To be worlds away

Slip into bed the sheets are
Cold and smooth
My tension melts to a quiet warm
Find myself waiting
To be sleeping
To be dreaming
To be worlds away

CHORUS
I wanna be worlds away
Apart from the day to day
I know I'll be okay
When I get worlds away
Worlds away
Worlds away

Slipping away to somewhere
In my heart
Go to a world where no one's been before
That's when I find myself
Not quite sleeping
But still dreaming
And I'm worlds away

CHORUS
