Track Name: Sweet Tooth
I can't help but help myself
To all the goodies lying on the shelf
Gobstoppers, they're one a~penny
Liquorice, why there's so many
I can't help but help myself

I can't wait to feel the weight
Of all the buns I've piled upon my plate
With sweet things I am besotted
Regardless that my teeth have rotted
I can't help but help myself
I've got a Sweet Tooth!

If you see me eating fudge
Just give me a little nudge
I was skinny as a rake
Until I learned to bake a cake

I can't help but help myself
To all the goodies lying on the shelf
Blackjacks, my they're two a~penny
Fruit Salads, mouthfuls a~plenty
I can't help but help myself
I've got a Sweet Tooth!
Track Name: Everybody Thinks You're Beautiful
Everybody thinks you're beautiful
Dutiful and sweet
Everybody thinks you're adorable
Unignorable and completely elegant

Everybody thinks that you're so ducky
Everybody thinks that I'm so lucky
But when we get to bed you might as well be dead

Everybody thinks you're wonderful
Impossible to match
Everyone agrees you're incredible
And simply the best catch in the world

Everybody thinks that you're so ducky
Everybody thinks that I'm so lucky
But when we get to bed you might as well be dead

Perhaps it's something that I do
Perhaps it's something that I don't do
Perhaps you need a little shove
Or should I wear a special glove
Perhaps it's all of the above
Perhaps you're just not so in love

Everybody thinks you're wonderful
Impossible to beat
Everyone agrees you're incredible
And indelible from one's memory...
Track Name: It Always Was You
Well it always was you
Who I thought would be holding me tight
At the end of the night
At the end of the pier dear
Well it always was you
Who I thought would be shining so bright
At the end of the day
When our hair had turned grey babe

Years have gone by but I hoped one day you'd whisper to me
That it always was you
Foolish, impetuous you

Well it always was you who I wanted to kiss me goodnight
At the end of the end
As the last credits roll doll
Well it always was you
Who I hoped would make everything right
We'd be still making hay
As was always our way babe

Years have gone by but I hoped one day you'd whisper to me
That it always was you
Unforgettable you

I know you've broken hearts
I've had my share of affairs
Though we've spent time apart
We're still two halves of one pair
And it always was you
Foolish, impetuous you
Track Name: Step Back
Why do you keep making those eyes at my baby
When you know damn well he ain't alone
He won't be dipping his bread in any gravy
When he gets steak every night at home

You're telling everyone in town that he kissed ya
And still claim you're so innocent
The way you shake that thing around little sister
There's gonna be an accident

So step back

I'm not denying that you're fine
You'd just do better if you kept your greedy paws off mine

If you make one more single move on my baby
Then don't blame me if I see red
Maybe you should just disappear pretty lady
And I'll slap his eyes back in his head

So step back
Track Name: Argentinian Boy
Argentinian Boy
I must sail tonight
Back to Illinois
And the Northern Lights
But my boarding pass
Is just second class
So there's not enough space for two

I will always remember
The sweet sound of your guitar
I will never forget
The first time you showed me your cha cha cha

Indonesian Boy
I must leave tonight
I will miss your soya sauce
so nice
Oh my island love
I must fly above
Alone alas I'll think of you

I will always remember
Your gong~a~geng so cute
I will never forget the time I played your bamboo flute

You will always stay handsome in my holiday snaps
I would pay a kings ransom to get the negatives back
Although thoughts of you remain I must get back on track
And put my poor heart shaped brain in the suitcase and pack

Oh my English Boy
I am coming home
Back to London town
I'll no longer roam
We'll eat fish and chips in our Camden dome
Where there's just enough space for two

I will always remember
The sound of your rhyming slang
I will never forget
The day you asked me to be in your gang

la la la la la la la la la la
Track Name: Voutville
Wherever we wend on this wav~o~ree~nee road
Well I'll still be your web~stomp and you'll be my toad
What's a~jumpin' baby on the way~zoo
They'll know that you're my wolf
Get on the track Tile, and dance

Yeah you and I
Way out and up high
They'll hear our sighs
Beneath the sea and over the sky
Babadiby do bi

Let's go down to Voutville and grab us some joy
Caresser in caresser, one girl and one boy
I'll put on some cray~a you'll see
You'll press your tho~kee, we'll be
Two twinklers in the night sky

Yeah you and I
Way out and up high
They'll hear our sighs
Beneath the sea and over the sky
Babadiby do bi

Vouterooney baby
Vout~o~ree~nee baby
Track Name: Two Left Feet
You've got everything that I look for honey
You tell stories with such panache
I don't care if everything you cook tastes funny
Or that you're so reckless with cash

Oh pretty baby there is just one thing
When we're together that makes alarm bells ring

You've got two left feet
You've got two left feet
Baby your Jitterbug
It damn near destroyed my rug

The very sight of you makes me swoon now baby
Your big brown eyes and pencil moustache
I'm only waiting for you to say when the day'll be
I'd marry you at the drop of your hat

Oh handsome baby there is just one thing
When we're together that makes alarm bells ring


You've got two left feet
You've got two left feet
When I saw your Lindy Hop
I thought my eyes were gonna pop

When you try to do The Shag
I have to reach for the sick bag
