Lyrics

When I Kissed the Teacher
03:02
Everybody screamed
when I kissed the teacher
and they must have thought they dreamed
when I kissed the teacher
all my friends at school
they had never seen the teacher blush
he looked like a fool
nearly petrified 'cos he was

Taken by surprise
when I kissed the teacher
couldn't quite believe his eyes
when I kissed the teacher
my whole class went wild
as I held my breath
the world stood still
but then he just smiled
I was in the seventh heaven
when I kissed the teacher

One of these days
gonna tell him I dream
of him every night
one of these days
gonna show him I care
gonna teach him a lesson alright

I was in a trance
when I kissed the teacher
suddenly I took the chance
when I kissed the teacher
leaning over me
he was trying to explain
the laws of geometry
and I couldn't help it
I just had to kiss the teacher

One of these days
gonna tell him I dream
of him every night
one of these days
gonna show him I care
gonna teach him a lesson alright

What a crazy day
when I kissed the teacher
all my sense had flown away
when I kissed the teacher
my whole class went wild
as I held my breath
the world stood still
but then he just smiled
I was in the seventh heaven
when I kissed the teacher
Dancing Queen
03:51
You can dance, you can jive
having the time of your life
see that girl, watch that scene
dig in the Dancing Queen

Friday night and the lights are low
looking out for the place to go
where they play the right music
getting in the swing
you come to look for a king

Anybody could be that guy
night is young and the music's high
with a bit of rock music
everything is fine
you're in the mood for a dance
and when you get the chance

You are the Dancing Queen
young and sweet only seventeen
Dancing Queen
feel the beat from the tambourine, oh yeah
you can dance, you can jive
having the time of your life
see that girl, watch that scene
dig in the Dancing Queen

You're a teaser, you turn 'em on
leave 'em burning and then you're gone
looking out for another
anyone will do
you're in the mood for a dance
and when you get the chance

You are the Dancing Queen
young and sweet only seventeen
Dancing Queen
feel the beat from the tambourine, oh yeah
you can dance, you can jive
having the time of your life
see that girl, watch that scene
dig in the Dancing Queen
My Love, My Life
03:53
I've seen it on your face
tells me more than any
worn-out old phrase
so now we'll go separate ways
never again we two
never again nothing I can do

Like an image passing by
my love, my life
in the mirror of your eyes
my love, my life
I can see it all so clearly
answer me sincerely
was it a dream, a lie
like reflections of your mind
my love, my life
are the words you try to find
my love, my life
but I know I don't possess you
so go away, God bless you
you are still my love and my life
still my one and only

I've watched you look away
tell me is it really so hard to say
oh, this has been my longest day
sitting here close to you
knowing that maybe tonight
|we're through

Like an image passing by
my love, my life
in the mirror of your eyes
my love, my life
I can see it all so clearly
answer me sincerely
was it a dream, a lie
like reflections of your mind
my love, my life
are the words you try to find
my love, my life
but I know I don't possess you
so go away, God bless you
you are still my love and my life
but I know I don't possess you
so go away, God bless you
you are still my love and my life
still my one and only
Dum Dum Diddle
02:55
I can hear how you work
practising hard
playing night and day, wo-oh
and it sounds better now
yes, you improve
every time you play, wo-oh
but it's bad
you're so sad
and you're only smiling
when you play your violin

Dum dum diddle
to be your fiddle
to be so near you
and not just hear you
dum dum diddle
to be your fiddle
I think then maybe
you'd see me, baby
you'd be mine
and we'd be together all the time
wish I was
dum dum diddle
your darling fiddle

But I think you don't know
that I exist
I'm the quiet kind, wo-oh
From the day when I first
listened to you
you've been on my mind, wo-oh
you don't care
it's not fair
and you're only smiling
when you play your violin

Dum dum diddle
to be your fiddle
to be so near you
and not just hear you
dum dum diddle
to be your fiddle
I think then maybe
you'd see me, baby
you'd be mine
and we'd be together all the time
Knowing Me, Knowing You
04:04
No more carefree laughter
silence ever after
walking through an empty house
tears in my eyes
here is where the story ends
this is goodbye

Knowing me, knowing you
there is nothing we can do
knowing me, knowing you
we just have to face it
this time we're through
breaking up is never easy I know
but I have to go
knowing me, knowing you
it's the best I can do

Mem'ries, good days, bad days
they'll be with me always
in these old familiar rooms
children would play
now there's only emptiness
nothing to say

Knowing me, knowing you
there is nothing we can do
knowing me, knowing you
we just have to face it
this time we're through
breaking up is never easy I know
but I have to go
knowing me, knowing you
it's the best I can do
Money, Money, Money
03:07
I work all night, I work all day
to pay the bills I have to pay
ain't it sad
and still there never seems to be
a single penny left for me
that's too bad
in my dreams I have a plan
if I got me a wealthy man
I wouldn't have to work at all
I'd fool around and have a ball

Money, money, money
must be funny
in the rich man's world
money, money, money
always sunny
in the rich man's world
aha, aha
all the things I could do
if I had a little money
it's a rich man's world

A man like that is hard to find
but I can't get him off my mind
ain't it sad
and if he happens to be free
I bet he wouldn't fancy me
that's too bad
so I must leave, I'll have to go
to Las Vegas or Monaco
and win a fortune in a game
my life will never be the same

Money, money, money
must be funny
in the rich man's world
money, money, money
always sunny
in the rich man's world
aha, aha
all the things I could do
if I had a little money
it's a rich man's world
That's Me
03:17
Are you sure you wanna hear more
what if I ain't worth the while
not the style you'd be lookin' for
if I'm sweet tonight
things look different in the morning light
I'm jealous and I'm proud
if you hurt my feelings
I'll cry out loud
I'm Carrie not-the-kind-of-girl-you'd-marry
that's me

Are you sure you wanna hear more
would I be the one you seek
mild and meek like the girl next door
don't you realise
I may be an angel in disguise
it's lonely to be free
but I'm not a man's toy
I'll never be
I'm Carrie not-the-kind-of-girl-you'd-marry
that's me

I don't believe in fairy-tales
sweet nuthins in my ear
But I do believe in sympathy
that's me, you see

Are you sure you wanna hear more
won't you have a drink with me
just to see you're not really sore
I can't help my ways
I'm just not the girl to hide my face
I'm Carrie not-the-kind-of-girl-you'd-marry
that's me

There's a special love
like an eagle flying with a dove
I'll find it in the end
if I keep on searchin' but until then
I'm Carrie not-the-kind-of-girl-you'd-marry
that's me
Why Did It Have to Be Me
03:22
When you were lonely
you needed a man
someone to lean on
well I understand
it's only natural
but why did it have to be me

Nights can be empty
and nights can be cold
so you were looking
for someone to hold
that's only natural
but why did it have to be me

I was so lonesome
I was blue
I couldn't help it
it had to be you
and I
always thought you knew the reason why
I only wanted a
little love affair
now I can see you are
beginning to care
but baby
believe me
it's better
to forget me

Men are the toys in
the game that you play
when you get tired
you throw them away
that's only natural
but why did it have to be me

Falling in love with
a woman like you
happened so quickly
there's nothing to do
it's only natural
but why did it have to be me

I was so lonesome
I was blue
I couldn't help it
it had to be you
and I
always thought you knew the reason why
I only wanted a
little love affair
now I can see you are
beginning to care
but baby
believe me
it's better
to forget me
Tiger
02:56
The city is a jungle
you better take care
never walk alone after midnight
if you don't believe it
you better beware of me

I am behind you
I always find you
I am the tiger
people who fear me
never go near me
I am the tiger

The city is a nightmare
a horrible dream
some of us will dream it forever
look around the corner
and try not to scream, it's me

I am behind you
I always find you
I am the tiger
people who fear me
never go near me
I am the tiger

Yellow eyes
are glowing like the neon lights
yellow eyes
the spotlights of the city nights

I am behind you
I always find you
I am the tiger
people who fear me
never go near me
I am the tiger

The city is a prison
you never escape
you're forever trapped in the alleys
look into the shadows
and you'll see the shape of me

I am behind you
I always find you
I am the tiger
people who fear me
never go near me
I am the tiger

Yellow eyes
are glowing like the neon lights
yellow eyes
the spotlights of the city nights

I am behind you
I always find you
I am the tiger
people who fear me
never go near me
I am the tiger
and if I meet you
what if I eat you
I am the tiger
I am behind you
I'll always find you
I am the tiger
