Monette

monette, petite coquette monette. raison d'etre monette

you won't forget monette

monette, insouciante monette. that bonne vivante monette

you won't forget monette

monette, in gold lame monette. in silhouette monette

you won't forget monette

monette, so soignee monette. it's her soiree monette

you won't forget monette. bon temps roulez, monette.

creme de la creme monette. you won't forget monette. a go go!

Turn Out That Light!

before you turn out the light...bring that dog in. no more barkin'

give her treats she likes to eat. but before you close the door

let the cat out!

let that cat out she's been meowin'. pet her fur and make her purr

after that here's one more thing, dear. kiss the baby!

     kiss the baby, rock her gently, sing her a lullaby

     tuck her in then tiptoe out and never make her cry

then check the windows, draw the curtains, lock the door

turn out that light!

and one more sumpthin' 'fore you jump in. say goodnight!

The Jackpot Is Now

you're sentimental, and memories are sweet

you wait for the future sweep you off your feet

but i'll tell you something if you would allow

the jackpot is now whoah-oh-oh-oh, the jackpot is now yeah, yeah

fortune come and go, take it from me

but love is everywhere and why we're rich, you see

and when you put it out there it come back to you somehow

the jackpot is now whoah-oh-oh-oh, the jackpot is now yeah, yeah

     time is precious, love is the currency, oh, yes indeed

later come too late, people go too soon

don't waste the sunrise waiting for the moon

and get your love out there everywhere and anyhow

the jackpot is now whoah-oh-oh-oh, the jackpot is now yeah, yeah

Deep Kisses

deep kisses, i'd gladly drown in your deep kisses

i'm going down. falling, calling your name

deep kisses, swallow me whole

deep kisses, sing to my soul

one with you. what two can do

depp kisses, i want to keep descending in deep kisses

until i can sleep. and wake again to take in the deep kisses

Hug Me

hug me. all the good in the world it will do

what a world of love it will be, too

darling when you hug me

when things look bright, or you're blue

let me share it with you, darling hug me

     the scientists say a hug every day

     is oh, so good for your heart

     and i aim to prove the theory is true

     day after day after day

hug me, all the good in the world it will do

what a world of love it will be, too

darling, hug me hug me hug me oooh...

Daisy, Lily, and Rose

     i'm stepping out in the sunshine with Daisy, Lily, and Rose

     we'll be making a beeline to love wherever it grows

Daisy has seen the dark side, Daisy's had her darkest day

but now Daisy faces the bright side

the sun is shining Daisy's way

     i'm stepping out in the sunshine with Daisy, Lily, and Rose 

     we'll be making a beeline to love wherever it grows

Lily, oh, Lily, bent in sorrow, holding herself so tight

but Lily gets a new tomorrow

Lily's reaching up to the light

     i'm stepping out in the sunshine with Daisy, Lily, and Rose

     we'll be making a beeline to love wherever it grows

Rose is Rose is all she knows, you can't get close to Rose

but Daisy, and Lily, and I'll be there

when Rose is blooming again

     i'm stepping out in the sunshine with Daisy, Lily, and Rose

     we'll be making a beeline to love wherever it grows

I Can't Get Enough Honey

     i can't get enough honey, where can my baby be?

     i can't get enough honey, honey come back to me

     did the buzz die down? yes, the buzz died down!

     did the buzz die down? yes the buzz died down, now

     i can't get enough honey, where can my baby be?

what's happened to my garden? what happened over the hill?

somebody's prowling my flowers, somebody's in for the kill

come in handsome and flirty, always got something to hide

now they doing the dirty down by the riverside

     i can't get enough honey, where can my baby be?

     i can't get enough honey, honey come back to me

     did the buzz die down? yes, the buzz died down

     did the buzz die down? yes, the buzz died down, now

     i can't get enough honey, where can my baby be?

used to be nectar flowing, used to be hum in the hive

soemthing in the seed they're sowing

and somebody's talking some jive

     now i can't get enough honey, where can my baby be?

     i can't get enough honey, honey come back to me

Back In Time

i'm going back in time, oh my darling when you were mine

transistor on the beach, your legs in reach

of my sandy feet

i've got a sweet machine and it's cranking out timely dreams

of the ocean rushing to your thighs

sparkle suns in your sparkling eyes

     now, i can only think of then

     remember how it was? remember when?

     then, we were living in the now

     and then we'd kiss, and kiss again

i hope i'm not too late

for my darling i cannot wait

set the dial to the date back in time

when you were mine

Pretty Sound

going home to my wood and wire

she's all i need and my one desire

     sweet, sweet harmony always come back to me

     sweet, sweet harmony always come back to me

holding close my favorite thing

sing her pretty notes, ring her pretty strings

     sweet, sweet harmony always come back to me

     sweet, sweet harmony always come back to me

staying here with that pretty sound

might not hear you if you come around

     but sweet, sweet harmony always come back to me

     sweet, sweet harmony always come back to me

Christmas This Year

     ding-dong, she-doo-wop a-ring-a-ding

     ding-dong, she-doo-wop a-ring-a-ding

let's take it nice and easy for christmas this year

try a little tenderness for christmas this year

wrap your arms around me in the still of the night

and in the wee, small hours of the morning

'neath the christmas lights

i'll have the world on a string, i can't deny it

all i want for christmas is peace and quiet

bless the poets, the paupers, the pipers

the queens, and the king

and listen to those christmas bells

     ding-dong, she-doo-wop a-ring-a-ding

     ding-dong, she-doo-wop a-ring-a-ding ding!
