Asked a girl what she wanted to be
She said baby, can't you see ?
I wanna be famous a star of the screen,
But you can do something in between.

Baby you can drive my car,
Yes I'm gonna be a star,
Baby you can drive my car,
And maybe I'll love you.

I told that girl that my prospects were good,
And she said baby, it's understood,
Working for peanuts is all very fine,
But I can show you a better time.

Beep beep
Beep beep yeah !

I told that girl I could start right away,
And she said listen babe, I've got something to say,
I got no car and it's breaking my heart,
But I found a driver and that's a start.


I once had a girl, or should I say, she once had me,
She showed me her room, isn't it good,
Norwegian wood ?
She asked me to stay and she told me to sit anywhere.
So I looked around and I noticed there wasn't a chair.

I sat on a rug, biding my time, drinking her wine.
We talked until two, and then she said, it's time for bed.

And she told me she worked in the morning and started to laugh.
I told her I didn't and crawled off to sleep in the bath.

And when I awoke, I was alone, this bird had flown.
So I lit a fire, isn't it good,
Norwegian wood ?


When I call you up,
Your line's engaged.
I have had enough,
So act your age.
We have lost the time
That was so hard to find,
And I will lose my mind,
If you won't see me.
You won't see me.

I don't know why you
Should want to hide
But I can't get through,
My hands are tied.
I don't want to stay,
I don't have much to say,
But I can turn away,
And you won't see me
You won't see me.

Time after time you refuse to even listen,
I wouldn't mind if I knew what I was missin'.

Though the days are few,
They're filled with tears,
And since I lost you
It feels like years
Yes it seems so long
Girl since you've been gone,
And I just can't go on,
If you won't see me.
You won't see me.



He's a real nowhere man,
Sitting in his nowhere land
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody.

Doesn't have a point of you,
Knows not where he's going to,
Isn't he a bit like you and me ?

Nowhere man, please listen.
You don't know what you're missing,
Nowhere man, the world is at your command.

He's as blind as he can be,
just sees what he wants to see,
Nowhere man, can you see me at all ?

Nowhere man don't worry,
Take your time don't hurry
Leave it all, till somebody else lends you a hand.


I've got a word or two to say
about the things that you do,
You're telling all those lies
about the good things that we can have
if we close our eyes.

Do what you want to do.
And go where you're going to,
Think for yourself 'cos I won't be there with you.

I left you far behind,
The ruins of the the life that you had in mind.
And though you still can't see,
I know your mind's made up,
You're gonna cause more misery.

Although your mind's opaque,
Try thinking more if just for your own sake.
The future still looks good
And you've got time to rectify all the things that you should.


Say the word and you'll be free,
Say the word and be like me,
Say the word I'm thinking of,
Have you heard the word is love.

It's so fine,
It's sunshine,
It's the word love.

In the beginning I misunderstood,
But now I've got it, the word is good.

Everywhere I go,
I heard it said,
In the good and bad books that I have read.

Now that I know what
I feel must be right,
I mean to show everybody the light.

Give the word, a chance to say,
That the word is just the way,
It's the word I'm thinking of,
And the only word is love.


Michelle, ma belle
These are words that go together well,
My Michelle.

Michelle, ma belle
Sont des mots qui vont très bien ensemble,
très bien ensemble.

I love you, I love you, I love you !
That's all I want to say,
Until I find a way, I will say the only words
I know that you'll understand.

I need you, I need you, I need you !
I need to make you see,
Oh what you mean to me
Until I do I'm hoping you will know what I mean.
I love you.

I want you, I want you, I want you !
I think you know by now,
I'll get to you somehow.
Until I do, I'm telling so you'll understand.

And I will say the only words
I know that you'll understand.
My Michelle.



What goes on in your heart ?
What goes on in your mind ?
You are tearing me apart
When you treat me so unkind
What goes on in your mind ?

The other day I saw you as I walked along the road
But when I saw him with you I could feel my future fold.
It's so easy for a girl like you to lie,
Tell me why ?

I met you in the morning waiting for the tides of time
But now the tide is turning, I can see that I was blind.
It's so easy for a girl like you to lie,
Tell me why ?

I used to think of no one else but you were just the same
You didn't even think of me as someone with a name.
Did you mean to break my heart and watch me die ?
Tell me why ?


Is there anybody going to listen to my story
All about the girl who came to stay?
She's the kind of girl you want so much it makes you sorry,
Still you don't regret a single day.
Ah girl ! Girl ! Girl !

When I think of all the times I've tried to leave her,
She will turn to me and start to cry.
And she promises the earth to me and I believe her,
After all this time I don't know why.
Ah girl ! Girl ! Girl !

She's the kind of girl who puts you down
when friends are there
you feel a fool !
When you say she's looking good
she acts as if it's understood,
She's cool, ooh, ooh ooh !
Girl ! Girl ! Girl !

Was she told when she was young that pain would lead to pleasure ?
Did she understand it when they said
That a man must break his to earn his of leisure ?
Will she still believe it when he's dead ?
Ah girl ! Girl ! Girl !


I'm looking through you,
Where did you go ?
I thought I knew you,
What did I know ?
You don't look different but you have changed.
I'm looking through you
You're not the same.

Your lips are moving,
I cannot hear.
Your voice is soothing,
But the words aren't clear.
You don't sound different I've learned the game.
I'm looking through you
You're not the same.

Why, tell me why did you not treat me right ?
Love has a nasty habit of disappearing overnight.

You're thinking of me
The same old way
You were above me
But not today.
The only difference is you're down there.
I'm looking through you
You're not the same.



There are places I remember all my life,
Though some have changed,
Some for ever, not for better,
Some have gone and some remain.

All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I've loved them all.

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you.
And these mem'ries lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new.

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before,
I know I'll often stop and think about them,
In my life I'll love you more.
In my life I'll love you more.

12. WAIT

It' been a long time,
Now I'm coming back home
I've been away
Oh now, I've been alone.

Wait, till I come back to your side,
We'll forget the tears we cried.

But if your heart breaks,
Don't wait, turn me away.
But if your heart's strong, hold on,
I won't delay.

I feel as though,
you ought to know
That I've been good,
As good as I can be.
And if you do,
I'll trust in you
And know that you will wait for me.


If I needed someone to love
You're the one that I'd be thinking of
If I needed someone.

If I had some more time to spend
Then I guess I'd be with you my friend
If I needed someone.

Had you come some other day
Then it might not have been like this.
But you see now I'm too much in love.

Carve your number on my wall
And maybe you will get a call from me,
If I needed someone.


I'd rather see you dead, little girl, than to be with another man.
You'd better keep your head little girl, or I won't know where I am.

You'd better run for your life if you can little girl,
Hide your head in the sand little girl.
Catch you with another man, that's the end, little girl.

Well, you know I'm a wicked guy,
And I was born with a jealous mind.
And I can spend my whole life tryin' just to make you toe the line.

Let this be a sermon, I mean everything I said.
Baby I'm determined and I'd rather see you dead.
