LADYKILLER (Berenyi) Here we go, I'm hanging out in Camden Drink with my girlfriends on a Saturday night This guy says, "come and meet my girlfriend" She's sitting in the corner looking rather uptight So I say "hello" and I try to be nice But I see he's feeling itchy Trying to play us off each other, "Girls, girls, please don't fight" (you get the picture) Hey you, the muscles and the long hair Telling me that women are superior to men Most guys just don't appreciate this You just convincing me you're better than them So he talks for hours about his sensitive soul And his favorite subject is sex I don't think he even wanted it But, Christ this guy's too much (I wanna tell him) I'm as human as the next girl, I like a bit of flattery But I don't need your practised lines, your school of charm mentality so Save your breath for someone else and credit me with something more When it comes to men like you, I know the score, I've heard it all before (Here comes the next one) Blondie was with me for a summer He flirted like a maniac but I wouldn't bite I'm weak and he was so persistent He only had to have me 'cause I put up a fight Oh God, the boy had such an ego He liked to talk about himself all day and all night You think you're such a ladykiller But you were nothing special 'til you turned out the light When he's nice to me he's just nice to himself And he's watching his reflection I'm a five foot mirror for adoring himself Here's seven years bad luck (I wanna tell him) When you say you love me you're just flattering your vanity But I don't need your practised lines your, your school of charm mentality so Save your breath for someone else and credit me with something more When it comes to men like you, I know the score, I've heard it all before Ooh, you're such a ladykiller, always on a winner, thinking that you're in there Oh boy, you're such a ladykiller, super sexy mister, call it what you will, oh You think you're such a lady killer, I just bet you're still there, posing in the mirror Hey girls, he's such a ladykiller, but we know where he's coming from and we know the score. HEAVENLY NOBODIES (Berenyi) Just because they seem to understand the way you feel It doesn't mean they'll feel the same way too Just because they seem to hold a mirror to your life It doesn't follow that they'll be just like you Take no heroes, Its no good They don't stand up to you Just take the bit you think they can use I remember when I was younger I thought the answers were locked in people So I admired the ones whose lives were a source of envy to people like me But do you really want to meet The ones who write your dreams Believe me, it's a fantasy You won't like the reality If you want heroes keep them safe They don't stand up to life So lock them in your soul and lose the key (I love you, I don't want to meet you) When I see you it makes me feel There's someone else out there like me You touch my soul with what you do It all makes sense when I hear you You understand the way I feel I know exactly what you mean It's like I've known you all my life I think of you I feel alright But in the flesh how would it be If you could really see The weaknesses you never knew Alive and staring back at you If you want to heroes keep them safe They don't stand up to life So lock them in your soul and lose the key 500 (SHAKE BABY SHAKE;) (Anderson) Shake, baby, shake, you know I can fit you in my arms Brake, baby, brake, taking me in with all you're charms I've never been inside you but you're so alluring They call you "little mouse" by name in Rome and Turin Looking now at your famous shape They don't make them like anymore Shake, baby, shake, you know I can fit you in my arms Brake, baby, brake, taking me in with all your charms When things are looking good there's always complications I can't be with you so I'm at the railway station Let's run away and be so alive Escape the drudgery of this nine to five Shake, baby, shake, you know I can fit you in my arms Brake, baby, brake, taking me in with all your charms Shake, baby, shake, you know I worship from afar Brake, baby, brake, how I wish you were my car I'VE BEEN HERE BEFORE (Anderson) I've tried to be strong, I've tried to be tough But I think that this time I've had more than enough I've seen too much of your games and your immature stuff You're a waste of time All the people I've known thoughout all the years Too many vodkas and too many beers And I've learnt a few lessons from all of the tears You're way out of line I feel so lucky sometimes I sit down and look at all my friends They mean more than the stupid fools that pass my way I used to prefer those who weren't good for me Somehow the attraction beat reality Now all the rubbish they spill, it means nothing to me I'm just much more wise Some people grow up and some only pretend They're all over the place, these children dressed up as men They can't imagine how a woman can be only a friend And they deal in lies I feel so lucky sometimes I sit down and I listen to my friends They say more than the empty words that pass my way And I feel so lucky sometimes I've got a feeling I've been here before I can see the world for what it really is You think that I'm jealous, well don't be so vain I can tell in your voice you think I want you again Well, if I did you know I think I'd be a little insane You just leave me cold Ooh, you and her in your sad little world You can only exist with the help of a girl Well, I'm glad it's not me, I've got my life to unfurl You're just way too old I feel so lucky sometimes I sit down and I look at all my friends They mean more than the stupid fools that pass my way And I feel so lucky sometimes I've got a feeling I've been here before I've been here before PAPASAN (Berenyi) Maybe I should make you stay away So you can really concentrate on where you are today when you phone, I sit and think alone And wonder if your life with her is really as you say Then again, you're still a friend I'll be loyal to you 'til the end Come to me with wounds you want to heal I'll listen and I'll try to understand the way you feel Never fear that I'll be gone from here I'll always be around for you to talk to me, my dear We can try to justify reasons for and reasons why Some are true and some are only lies With fingers crossed you close your eyes And hope that things will turn out fine There's not a lot that I can do If you're too weak to face the truth 'Cause if the things you tell me are The way you really claim they are Then I can only pity you for being such a fool Single Girl (Anderson) Single girl, I don't want to be a single girl Single girl, I don't want to be a single girl Don't want to be on my own again tonight Don't want to put out the light Single girl, I don't want to be a single girl Single girl, who would want to be a single girl Don't want to talk to myself again tonight don't want to put out the light When you abandoned me Well, it was heaven sent When I abandoned you It was what you meant Well, it was me that knew it And it was you that went Haven't changed our minds it was meant to be Don't want to clean up your mess again tonight Don't want to be in a fight And I can do what I want again tonight With who I choose, it's alright Single girl, I just want to be a single girl CIAO! (Berenyi) I've been so happy since I walked away I never thought that I could feel as great as I do today 'Cause you were nothing but a big mistake And life is wonderful, now that I'm rid of you Oh I must've been crazy to have stayed with you I can't believe I thought I was in love with you But now the scales have fallen I can really see And I say go to hell, 'cause thats where you took me Well, I've felt better since I slammed that door You always cramped my style, I never noticed before It's been a non-stop party since I flew the coop I can't believe I fell for such a loser like you And is it any wonder that I felt so blue When I was always having to put up with you Oh, here we go again, just lay the blame on me Don't say another word, 'cause sweetheart, you're history I know that you miss me really, bet you wish that you still had me You'll never find someone like me but I've got no regrets at all 'Cause I've met this girl and she's so good to me She's really beautiful, fantastic company Oh, when I'm with her I realise what love can be 'Cause she's fifty times the person you will ever be Good luck, mister, do you think I care? Since you've been gone the offers have been everywhere I've got a million guys just lining up for me I've turned a corner, boy, my life is ecstasy Well, I've been in heaven since I walk away I never thought that I could feel as great as I do today 'Cause you were nothing but a waste of space And life is wonderful now that I'm over you TRALALA (Anderson) In this world I live in, I care for number one Hell is round the corner, never trust no one Funny how the people came to gather round Oh, so many people when I was on the ground I've never known what love is, there's no Mr.Right If they want to treat me good, then that's their sorry plight Funny how the people came to give their voice Are they really people or just silly little boys? Say what you want, I don't mind, I don't mind Say what you need, I don't mind, I don't mind I want all the people to notice who I am Gotta show them what you've got or they won't give a damn Say what you want, I don't mind, I don't mind Say what you need, I don't mind, I don't mind Last Night (Anderson) And even in your darkest hour The recipe I cook for you Can release its latent power And make your body feel brand new Can't you hear the music play Being center of what you want Try to leave the past behind Memories don't appeal All the things we said All the things we did All the things that passed Were satisfied.... RUNAWAY (Berenyi) Come on boy, I wanna dance now Line by line we talk all night, yeah Hold me down, I think I'm flying Everybody's eyes are shining Runaway to where the world is fine Hold on boy, you're falling fast now Line by line you go no where, yeah Drag me down I feel I'm sinking Can't relate to what you're thinking Runaway to where the sun don't shine Hello, hello, are you still there? You don't answer me 'cause you just don't care Act so young but you look so old And you're too far gone to find your own way home Life's so hard for you to handle You can't live without your devil Boy, you think that you're so special Well, life is hard for everyone, believe me Hello, hello, do you still care? You don't answer me 'cause there's no one there Run away from your own sweet soul And you're too far gone to find your own way home THE CHILDCATCHER (Berenyi) "Baby," he says, "You are like the clean white page and I the pen. The innocence I find between your girlish thighs is like the fountain of youth to my old bones." And she replies, "Daddy's little girl's a precocious child I love to please, I'll do anything that you ask of me Eager to fulfill all of Daddy's needs." "Baby," he says, "I can never love older girls like I love you. You're easier to please and you never give me grief 'Cause you accept everything I say and do." And she replies, "I'm in no position to make demands. I have no past, no one else has done to me what you do. I've got no one else to compare you to." "And as you grow older, try to stay sixteen all your life, Old women grow bitter, don't let that happen to you." "And why is it charming pretending I'm younger than my years? Why can't I grow up with dignity, set me free?" "Baby," he says, "Now that you're older I feel our love has died. Once upon a time you never criticised me. Oh, I much preferred you as a child." And I reply, "Everything you said to me was a lie. I know your kind, you just want a daughter without a wife. You don't need a girlfriend you need a life." OLYMPIA (THE BEST SONG!) (Anderson) Will I ever be Olympia? Will I ever be a girl like her? Will I ever have to say the word And instantly I'll be adored? Could I ever deign to have the look Instead of have to read a book? Will I ever be Olympia? Will I ever be a girl like her? And if ever there's a will There's a place in Notting Hill You can go and visit still And if ever there's a way To find a hopeful ray Will I find it all today? Will I ever be Olympia? Could I ever have a cat like her? Could I ever lie around all day eating chocolate and marmalade? Now it's time to find the perfect world Dress myself up like the perfect girl Could I ever be Olympia? Could I ever be in love like her? In chaos of our lives Can we ever find the time To cherish feeling fine And in the aftermath of pain Can the balance be regained? Can we ever be the same? And now, time to switch off Sit down, turn the lights off Lie back, treat this sofa like your own Look out, here comes trouble Look out, we're in a muddle Keep running 'til you find you've reached your home Could I ever be Olympia? In the chaos of our lives Can we ever find the time To cherish feeling fine And in the aftermath of pain Can the balance be regained? Can we ever be the same? And now, time to switch off.
