Bwana

 

The night brings the stranger,
The jungle cries for more.
The natives in the villages,
The visitor at the door.
We all have our demons, And sometimes they escape.
But Bwana is the visitor, In control of your own fate.

 

Bwana, Bwana, Bwana
Bwana, Bwana, Bwana

 

The night brings on strangers,
The jungle cries for more.
The natives in the villages,
The visitor at the door.

Trouble

 

I really should be saying goodnight,
I really shouldn't stay anymore.
It's been so long since I held ya,
I've forgotten what love is for.

 

I should run on the double
I think I'm in trouble,
I think I'm in trouble.

 

So come to me darlin' and hold me,
Let your honey keep you warm.
Been so long since I held ya,
I've forgotten what love is for.

 

I should run on the double
I think I'm in trouble,
I think I'm in trouble.

Mary Lee Jones

 

Days were lonely and so were the nights.
She could not tell wrong from right.
Body broken, worn to the bone,
The final days of Mary Lee Jones,
Mary Lee Jones

 

She could not get him out of her mind.
Too much passion drove her blind.
Nothing she could call her own,
The final days of Mary Lee Jones,
Mary Lee Jones

 

Days were lonely and so were the nights.
She could not tell wrong from right.
Nothing she could call her own,
The final days of Mary Lee Jones,
Mary Lee Jones

I'll Tell You Now

 

I stayed at home today,
Didn't have a lot to say,
I guess you must wonder why,
I'll tell you,
Tell you now

 

I felt the same today,
The same as always,
I guess you must wonder why,
I'll tell you,
Tell you now

 

I need someone today,
Someone who can take my place,
I guess you must wonder why,
I'll tell you,
Tell you now

It Was I

 

You're telling everybody I'm the one
To blame for all the wrong that you have done.
The day that you walked out and left, didn't say goodbye.
Who was left alone to sit and cry?
It was I, it was I.

 

I gave you everything I ever had,
The only things I got from you were bad,
The times you didn't show up,
The times you didn't call,
Who was left alone with it all?
It was I, it was I.

 

My love was always yours to treasure and to hold.
If you let a love go by, it will soon grow cold.
Temptation is too strong to hide,
Are you really satisfied
With my love the way it is?
Let me tell you how it is.

 

Please come back and try to start anew
I know that it's the proper thing to do,
Darlin, if we make up
I know we'll never break up.
Then I know it's only me and you,
Me and you.

September Song

 

Well, it's a long, long time
From May to December
But the days grow short
When you reach September
And the autumn weather
Turns the leaves to gray
And I haven't got time
For the waiting game

 

And the days dwindle down to a precious few
September, November
And these few precious days I spend with you
These precious days I spend with you

Shadow Of The West

 

Dancing ever changing desert sand
I was burned by the touch of her hand
The setting of the sun sca2es me to death
I'm a shadow
Shadow
Shadow of the west

 

Once upon a time I was strong and proud
Everything that the law would allow
But more and more
I feel less and less
I'm a shadow
Shadow
Shadow of the west

 

Memories like shadows scorched in the sand
I'm alone, a lonely man
The setting of the sun scares me to death
I'm a shadow
Shadow
Shadow of the west

That's How We Do It In L.A

 

You'll win prizes if you stay,
'Cause that's how we do it in L.A.
C'est si bon, come what may,
That's how we do it in L.A.
Oh, hold on tight now, hold on to stay,
'Cause that's how we do it in L.A.
C'est si bon, que sera sera,
That's how we do it in L.A.

 

It's a lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely place

 

But it's the only, only, only, only, only place

 

You'll win prizes if you stay,
'Cause that's how we do it in L.A.
Oh hold on tight now, hold on to stay,
'Cause that's how we do it in L.A.

Johnny Stew

 

Johnny, oh Johnny,
Where do you roam?
We'll always remain here,
So don't leave us alone.
Some say they knew him,
And some just left him alone.
Johnny, oh Johnny,
Where do you roam?

 

Johnny, Johnny, Johnny,
Everybody's talking about
The amazing Johnny Stew.

 

Johnny, Johnny, Johnny,
Everybody's talking about
The amazing Johnny Stew.

 

It takes a worried man, now,
To sing a worried song.
Johnny, oh Johnny,
I know you were not wrong

Love From Here, Love From There

 

Sensation sweet at my feet,
Such a strong appetite.
With love from here, love from there,
you only get one bite

 

With love from here, love from there,
When everybody went stag,
With love from here, love from there,
Everybody was a drag

 

Sensation sweet at my feet,
Working up to the loin.
With love from here, love from there,
They look you straight in the groin

 

With love from here, love from there,
When everybody went stag,
With love from here, love from there,
Everybody was a drag

A Satisfied Mind

 

How many times have you heard someone say?
"If I had his money, I could do things my way"
But little they know, it's so hard to find
One rich man in ten with a satisfied mind

 

Once I was living in fortune and fame
And everything that I dreamed of to get a start in lifes game
But suddenly it happened, I lost every dime
But I'm richer by far with a satisfied mind

 

'Cause money can't buy back your youth when you're old
Or a friend when you're lonely, or a love that's grown cold
The wealthiest person is a pauper at times
Compared to the man with a satisfied mind

 

When life has ended, my time has run out
My friends and my loved ones I'll leave, there's no doubt
But one thing for certain when it comes my time
I'll leave this old world with a satisfied mind
