She's Gonna Come

The day was cloudy, sky was low
And all the cars were moving slow 
Along the line...
(She's gonna come, 
She's gonna come)

The rain was like a Spanish beat
And in the mirror of the street 
You looked so fine...
(She's gonna come, 
She's gonna come)

I think you're wasting all your time,
I think you're wasting all your time...
(She's gonna come,
She's gonna come)

The next day was a sunny one 
And all around you, everyone
Was having fun
(She's gonna come, 
She's gonna come)

We could imagine how the phone
Was ringing hopeless at her home,
For she was gone
(She's gonna come, 
She's gonna come)

Think you're wasting all your time,
Think you're wasting all your time...
(She's gonna come
She's gonna come)

The third time she was there allright,
Her hair - a shining in the light,
But you were gone
(She's gonna come, 
She's gonna come)

You're waiting now again, my friend,
The magic present in the end
If she would come
(She's gonna come, 
She's gonna come)

Think you're wasting all your time,
I think you're wasting all your time !
(She's gonna come,
She's gonna come)
(She's gonna come,
She's gonna come)
(She's gonna come, 
She's gonna come)

 


Chocolate Eyes

I saw her early one morning
And she got chocolate eyes,
I saw her early one morning
And she got chocolate eyes,
She smiled and went away quickly
And got out of sight...

She came to me late one evening
And said "How'd you do ?"
She came to me late one evening
And said "How'd you do ?"
I put my coffee aside and said:
"Just waiting for you !"

I'm warning you 'bout her:
She's got candy lips on 
Now I'm warning you 'bout her, man:
She's got candy lips on, 
She leaves no telephone number
And has no telephone...

 


The Park

So many people around and around
And no place you could sit down;
There's no need for such a place,
Everybody's down at the skateboard race !

From dawn till dark
Everybody's fooling 'round the park,
From dawn till dark
Everybody's fooling 'round the park...

Found myself by a worn-out car,
I'd really like to know where you are;
But you're now just a face in the crowd
And the band is playing much too loud...

From dawn till dark
Everybody's fooling 'round the park - one more time !
From dawn till dark
Everybody's fooling 'round the park !

Buyer people read the news, 
Have a cake and an orange juice...
The girl I was talking to, now she's gone,
No time to wait for another one

From dawn till dark
Everybody's fooling 'round the park - one more time !
From dawn till dark
Everybody's fooling 'round the park !

 


Let Me Be There Too

Time has gone away,
Still you look the same...
How can it be ?
You're a magic queen
Coming from a dream,
Careless and free...

In your castle
There's no master,
There's no dragon
In your wagon,
You're like a sparrow,
And tomorrow
Comes much too soon...

There's a little mouse
Hiding in your house, 
Waiting in your room...
Let me be there, too !

Let me find you there,
In your rocking chair ,
Flowers around...
Pictures on the wall 
And a tennis ball 
Down on the ground...

There's no way out 
From your layout,
From your colors
And your mirrors,
You're a sparrow,
And tomorrow
Comes much too soon...

There's a little mouse
Hiding in your house,
Waiting in your room...
Let me be there, too !

 


Lazy Afternoon

Lock up your telephone,
If someone calls, you won't be home,
Don't you worry !
Your lazy afternoon
Is all around you in your room,
Don't you worry !

Neighbors will never know
Why is the music low,
Why is the window open so wide,
Never mind...
Keep an eye on the street,
There may be someone worth to meet,
And if there is none
Chew your gum, yeah !

Neighbors will never guess
Who could be in your dress,
Running along a cold empty lane,
It's a shame...
Your lazy afternoon
Falls into corners of your room
Dying slow...
Was it so ?
No one knows, yeah !

 


I've Got Two Umbrellas

My sweet Cinderella,
I've got two umbrellas,
That's why I don't mind
When it's raining outside...

My sweet Cinderella,
If you want an umbrella 
All you've got to do is ask to !

If you're nice and pretty 
My umbrella gets sweet and nice
The rain makes it shine 
Just like a magic colored butterfly...

My sweet Cinderella,
I've got two umbrellas,
That's why I don't mind !

If I'm home and it's raining
My umbrellas are waiting
And I'm on my way, night and day...

My friends, when it's raining,
They're always complaining,
They don't have umbrellas, my fellas...

Usually, the weather 
Is a wonderful, beautiful one,
You need no umbrella 
To get out and walk on in the sun...

My sweet Cinderella,
I've got two umbrellas,
That's why I don't mind...

My sweet Cinderella,
I've got two umbrellas,
That's why I don't mind...

 


Where Are You Going, Pretty Lady ?

Where are you going, pretty lady ?
Where are you going, pretty lady ?
The night is deep and dark already...
Where are you going, pretty lady ?

Why don't you ever come my way ?
Why don't you ever come my way ?
Why don't you ever say you'll stay ?
Why don't you ever come my way ?

 


Little Story

When the little mouse is ill,
Under blankets standing still
He looks awful,
His eyes black as pepper...
When the little mouse is out
You can hear him sing and shout,
With eyes smiling
Because he feels better.
And my cat,
He is hiding under my hat !

 


Your Eyes

There's a magic wind blowing outside
And the rainbow shining through the sky,
All the clouds in a line of silver,
Far away in the dawn...

All the stars so distant and bright,
They were holding cups of wine last night
And inviting me to their party
While you slept in your room...
Tell me about you
Things I never knew,
Let me be your lucky day,
Let me have your past and drive away, ohoh

If you believe it could happen one day
There's no point in letting me hear you say
How you go through your life so lonesome
While I'm waiting for you...
Don't you fade away,
I want you to stay,
Bedtime hour's coming soon,
Let me take your arm,
Let me show you to your room, ohohoh

There's a pretty girl living next door
With a thousand furs lying on the floor
And a beautiful car to drive in ...
But she doesn't have your eyes,
But she doesn't have your eyes,
But she doesn't have your eyes,
But she doesn't have your eyes,
But she doesn't have your eyes !

 


Butterfly on the Wall

There's a butterfly on the wall,
He is trying to fool us all,
It's your party and he wants to 
To stay with you

He's a beautiful flying guest,
But we can't let him stay and rest,
There're too many to come, you know, 
He would better go.

Clouds are moving up in the sky,
Stars are glittering in the night,
Things will disappear in the fog...

There's a butterfly on the wall,
He is trying to fool us all,
But we can't let him stay and fall 
In love with you, 
In love with you 

At all...

 


Queen of Darkness

The window's open wide, and him,
He's telling me "The light is dim,
But better's to close on the window !"

The yellow trees are burning high
Like candles shining in the sky
To help on the stars...

The noise is coming from the street
And makes me stand up on my feet
"What for ?", my good friend is asking.
"The queen of darkness, she is gone,
You're on your own..."

"You're on your own..."

 


Till Tomorrow

There's a window framing all the sky
Who's this snowlike cloud flying all inside ?
Nothing else around he could borrow...

There's a table and a piece of bread
And an empty chair, and an empty bed
And a lot of time till tomorrow !

Nothing but a clock to tell the time,
Lingering his noise in and out my mind,
Standing in the dark
Like an arrow... 

There's a picture of a movie star
And a five-years old fashion calendar
And a nice long way till tomorrow...

Yesterday I met someone strange enough, 
He said: "Seems I know your face from a photograph !" 
And I said: "Never mind my face, what about my mind ?"
And he said: "Don't worry, there's a sleeping child inside..."

There's a suitcase with my things inside
But my thoughts are out, with no place to hide,
Flying back to you like a sparrow...

And the moonlight dances on the floor,
And the postman leaves papers at my door,
And the phone is out till tomorrow !

 


Don't You Worry

Time is so easily gone and always on the run, 
We cannot keep the years and all the joy and fun.
Nobody knows the place where they're going, one by one,
I think it's a secret place 
And we cannot trace 
Where they're hiding from the sun !

So don't you worry about,
Don't you worry about anymore,
Why should you worry about, 
When another year's at your door ?

So don't you worry about,
Don't you worry about anymore,
Why should you worry about, 
When another year's at your door ?

Well, I want you always here and never go astray,
I have a secret place to keep you night and day:
It's like a paradise, by my pillow, in my bed,
Nobody knows about,
When the lights are out
You could come and rest your head !

So don't you worry about,
Don't you worry about anymore,
Why should you worry about 
When I'm knocking at your door ?

Take what you want to keep 
In a bag of yellow silk,
There's honey in my room 
And a cold jar full of milk !

Why should you fear ?
It's a good idea,
And only for you...

 


The Snow Is Falling

The snow is falling from the sky,
The plane looks like a silver fly,
The pilot cannot move his eyes,
His hands are a-freezing !

The wind is blowing much too high,
On every window there is ice,
I cannot move my fingers twice,
I think they are freezing...

You can look down, we're almost there,
Everything's white and everywhere
The snow falls on...

The trees are made of silver wood,
I think it could be worse, my darling,

I'd like to stay with you and fly
And watch the snow falling from the sky,
I think it really would be nice
If it weren't a-freezing...

Ratatatara-ra...

 


The Door Is Open

The door is open,
If there is rain 
The window pane 
Will shine,
You can take your time,
Drink all the wine...

The door is open,
How come you're in ?
I've never seen 
You come...
Always on the run,
Never had the time 
To make up my mind...

"Let me in your dream...
Is there inside 
A good place to hide
Where I still could hear
Your voice in my ear 
Whispering ?..."

The door is open, 
The light is low, 
Now you will go 
Away,
What else is there to say ?
Don't you step aside,
Don't you bleed inside,
Don't you let your mind 
Take off...
