Lyrics

Drive My Car
02:30
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 love you
.
I told that girl that my prospects were good
She said "Baby, it's understood
Working for peanuts is all very fine
But I can show you a better time"

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

Beep beep mm beep beep, yeah

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

I told that girl I could start right away
She said "Listen, baby, I've got something to say
I got no car and it's breaking my heart
But I've found a driver and that's a start"

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

Beep beep mm beep beep, yeah
Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)
02:06
I once had 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"

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
You Won't See Me
03:23
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 missing

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

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

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
Nowhere Man
02:45
He's a real nowhere man
Sitting in his nowhere land
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
Doesn't have a point of view
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 a 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

Doesn't have a point of view
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 a real nowhere man
Sitting in his nowhere land
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
Think for Yourself
02:19
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 'cause I won't be there with you

I left you far behind
The ruins of 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

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

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

Do what you want to do
And go where you're going to
Think for yourself 'cause I won't be there with you
Do what you want to do
And go where you're going to
Think for yourself 'cause I won't be there with you
Think for yourself 'cause I won't be there with you
The Word
02:44
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

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

Everywhere I go I hear it said
In the good and the bad books that I have read

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

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
It's so fine, it's sunshine
It's the word love
Say the word, love
Say the word, love
Michelle
02:43
Michelle, ma belle
These are words that go together well
My Michelle
Michelle, ma belle
Sont les 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

Michelle, ma belle
Sont les mots qui vont très bien ensemble
Très bien ensemble

I need to, I need to, I need to
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 you
So you'll understand

Michelle, ma belle
Sont les mots qui vont très bien ensemble
Très bien ensemble

I will say the only words I know
That you'll understand
My Michelle
What Goes On
02:51
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

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?

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

What goes on in your heart?

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

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?
Girl
02:34
Is there anybody going to listen to my story
All about the girl who came to stay?
She's a 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 so hard to leave her
She will turn to me and start to cry
And the promises the earth to me and I believe her
After all this time I don't know why

Ah, girl
Girl, girl

She's a 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, oh, oh, oh

Ah, girl
Girl, girl

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

Ah, girl
Girl, girl
I'm Looking Through You
02:28
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 and you're nowhere

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

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
In My Life
02:25
There are places I'll remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever, 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 memories 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

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
Wait
02:17
It's been a long time, now I'm coming back home
I've been away now, oh how, I've been alone

Wait till I come back to your side
We forget the tears we cried

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

Wait till I come back to your side
We forget the tears we cried

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

It's been a long time, now I'm coming back home
I've been away now, oh how, I've been alone

Wait till I come back to your side
We forget the tears we cried

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

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

Wait till I come back to your side
We forget the tears we cried

It's been a long time, now I'm coming back home
I've been away now, oh how, I've been alone
If I Needed Someone
02:24
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

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
Run for Your Life
02:19
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 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 that I'm a wicked guy
And I was born with a jealous mind
And I can't spend my whole life tryin'
Just to make you toe the line

You 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

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

You 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

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 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
