love song

Lucifer Sam

late night

songstories!

When I woke up today
And you weren't there to play
Then I wanted to be with you
When you showed me your eyes
Whispered love the skies
Then I wanted to stay with you
Inside me I feel
Alone and unreal
And the way you kiss
Will always be a very special thing to me

When I lay still at night
Seeing stars high and light
Then I wanted to be with you
When the rooftops shone dark
All alone saw a spark
Spark of love just to stay with you
Inside me I feel
Alone and unreal
And the way you kiss
Will always be a very special thing to me

If I mention your name
Turn around on a chain
Then the sky opens out for you
When we grew very tall
When I saw you so small
Then I wanted to stay with you
Inside me I feel
Alone and unreal
And the way you kiss
Will always be a very special thing to me




let's roll another one (unreleased)

songstories!

Oh my!
Girl sitting in the sun
Go buy!
Candy and a currant bun
I'm high!
Don't try to spoil the fun
Go cry!
We'll have another one

Oo, don't touch me child
Please, you know you drive me wild
Please, you know I'm feeling frail

It's true!
Sun shining very bright
It's you!
I'm gonna love tonight
Ice cream!
Tastes good if you eat it right
Ice cream!
Tastes good if you treat it right

Oo, don't talk to me
Please, just walk with me
Please, you know I'm feeling frail

Oh my!
Girl sitting in the sun
Go buy!
Candy and a currant bun
I'm high!
Don't try to spoil the fun
Go cry!
We'll have another one

Oo, don't touch me child
Please you know you drive me wild
Please you know I'm feeling frail


NOTE: also see "Candy and a Currant Bun",
which was the later version of this song.


let's split

songstories!

Everything about
About to go out
Me out, you out
Yes and everything is out
About, out
Out, out, out, out, out, out
Let's split!
I'm telling you this is it!

Everything is down
And hound, hound, hound
Back down, down, down
Even everything is down
Abound and down
Down, down, down, down, down
Let's split!
Tellin' you this is it!

Nobody is right tonight
Night, height, night, tight
It isn't right
Me out, you out
And everything is out
Out, out, out, out, out, out
Let's split!

[whistling]




long gone

songstories!

She was long gone
Long, long gone
She was gone, gone
The bigger they come
The larger her hand
'Till no one understands
Why for so long she'd been gone
And I stood very still
By the window sill
And I wondered for those I love still
I cried in my mind
Where I stand behind
The beauty of love's in her eyes

She was long gone
Long, long gone
She was gone, gone
The bigger they come
The larger her hand
'Till no one understands
Why for so long she'd been gone
And I borrowed the page
From a leopard's cage
And I prowled in the evening sun's glaze
Her head lifted high
To the light in the sky
The opening dawn on her face

She was long gone
Long, long gone
She was gone, gone
The bigger they come
The larger her hand
'Till no one understands
Why for so long she'd been gone
And I stood very still
By the window sill
And I wondered for those I love still
I cried in my mind
Where I stand behind
The beauty of love's in her eyes
She was long gone
Long, long gone




love song

songstories!

I knew a girl and I like her still
She said she knew she would trust me
And I her will
I said: OK baby, tell me what you'll be
And I'll lay my head down and see what I see
By the time she was back
By her open eyes
I knew that I was in for a big surprise

I knew a girl and I like her still
She said she knew she would trust me
And I her will
I said: OK baby, tell me what you'll be
And I'll lay my head down and see what I see
By the time she was back
By her open eyes
I knew that I was in for a bigger surprise




love you

songstories!

Honey love you

Honey little
Honey funny sunny morning
Love you more funny love in the skyline baby
Ice cream, 'scuse me
I seen you looking good the other evening

Oh, you dig it

Had to smile just an hour or so
Are we in love like I think we be?
It ain't a long rhyme
It took ages to think
I think I'll hurl it in the water, baby

Honey love you

Honey little
Honey funny sunny morning
Love you more funny love in the skyline baby
Ice cream, 'scuse me
I seen you looking good the other evening

Flaking you are

A nice little one
To put it all around
Its just good, I like it
Hey hey hey
S'pose some time that day
Whoopee! Swinging it along over across to me

Honey love you

Honey little
Honey funny sunny morning
Love you more funny love in the skyline baby
Ice cream, 'scuse me
I seen you looking good the other evening

Goodtime rocker woman

We'll stray our pieces, little creepy
We shine, so sleepy, so whoopee!
That's how you look

Honey love you

Honey little
Honey funny sunny morning
Love you more funny love in the skyline baby
Ice cream, 'scuse me
I seen you looking good the other evening




Lucifer Sam

songstories!

Lucifer Sam, siam cat
Always sitting by your side
Always by your side
That cat's something I can't explain

Jennifer Gentle you're a witch
You're the left side
He's the right side
Oh no!
That cat's something I can't explain

Lucifer go to sea
Be a hip cat
Be a ship's cat
Somewhere, anywhere
That cat's something I can't explain

At night prowling sifting sand
Hiding around on the ground he'll be found,
When you're around
That cat's something I can't explain




Lucy leave

songstories!

Leave when I ask you to leave, Lucy
Please fall away from me, Lucy
Oh, go little girl
Seein' as I'm so broken up about you, Lucy
Mean, treating me and done me harm, Lucy
Bein' in love with you and your charms, Lucy
oh, go little girl
I'm in love with you, Lucy!
You got my heart, you got my heart, Oh no!
You tear me apart, you just won't let me go!
You hold on so tight, so tight I just can't breathe!
Now Lucy leave, Lucy!

Leave when I ask you to leave, little girl
Please fall away from me, little girl
Yeah, go little girl
Seein' as I'm so broke up about you, Lucy
Yeah, Go
