(Remember the days of the) OLD SCHOOLYARD

Remember the days of the old schoolyard
We used to laugh a lot, oh don't you
Remember the days of the old schoolyard
When we had imaginings
and we had all kinds of things
and we laughed and needed love... yes, I do,
Oh and I remember you
 
Remember the days of the old schoolyard
We used to cry a lot, oh don't you
Remember the days of the old schoolyard
When we had simplicity
and we had warm toast for tea
and we laughed and needed love.. yes, I do,
Oh and I remember you
 
You were my sweet love, my first sweet love
My lovey dove, my love lovey dove
No matter what place, whichever the place
I still see your face, your smiling face
In childish dreams, inside my dreams
Like King and Queen, God save our dreams
N'though time may fade, though time may fade
It ain't never too late, to learn about love
Learn about love
 
Remember the days of the old schoolyard
We used to laugh a lot, oh don't you
Remember the days of the old schoolyard
When we had imaginings
and we had all kinds of things
and we laughed and needed love... yes, I do
Oh and I remember you

LIFE

Life you make it what it is
Love can change it with a kiss
Love can take you by the hand
Love can drop you where you stand
 
But still you want to have it all
You like to live it up
But still you want to have it all
I thought you had enough
But still you want to have it all
I thought you had enough
 
Life you make it what it is
Love can change it with a kiss
She can turn your head around
He can lift you off the ground
 
But still you want to have it all
You like to live it up
But still you want to have it all
I thought you had enough
But still you want to have it all
I thought you had enough
 
Love you make it what it is
Life can change it with a kiss
Love, love, love, love

KILLIN´ TIME

People polishing guns
They've got nothing better to do
Though they think they're having fun
They're just living to die,
if they but knew
Now, now
 
All day long they sit at home
Waiting for the milk to come
Watch them turn into stone
Thinking 'bout the things
they might have done,
Now, now
 
You missed the point,
you missed the point,
you really missed the point
 
Everybody's got to know
Love's the reason we're here
No matter which way you go
Love's gonna meet you there
 
Killing time, killing time
Killing time, killing time
 
You missed the point,
you really missed the point
Made me cry, I wonder why, why
You missed the point,
you missed the point,
you really missed the point.

BONFIRE

I can't budge baby I can't move
without your love to guide me
I don't know honey that's the truth
what laid you down beside me,
Heat me with your love oh,
your lips were meant for mine
Nobody else can bake me like a,
no no no, like a-
 
Bonfire, your love is like a
bonfire burning deep within me
Now some folks said it's no good
to smoke in bed Umm,
but I just turn off my ears
and I jump into the fire again
 
I feel so weak, yea,
I can't sleep without you
there to hold me
Promise me you won't ever leave
or I would die so coldly,
Kiss me with your eyes,
please don't let it rain
Don't kick no dust on my-
 
Bonfire, your love is like a
bonfire burning deep within me
Now it just grows,
no matter where the wind blows
Yeah but since you touched me
I can't hide it
I've been so delighted with you
 
Yeah, heat me with your love, ah ah
You opened up my heart,
I just can't live without you,
Oh, I just couldn't live another day,
your my-
 
Bonfire, your love is like a
bonfire burning deep within me
Now some folks said it's no good
to smoke in bed uh, huh
But I just take off my clothes
and I jump into the fire again.

I NEVER WANTED TO BE A STAR

I was seventeen,
you were working for Matthew and Son,
(The) Beatles met the Queen, and I wrote
I'm gonna get me a gun, yeah, yeah
It was like a dream in the star machine,
oh, no, izitso, izitso?
 
I never wanted to be a star,
I never wanted to travel far
I only wanted a little bit of love
So I could put a little love in my heart
I never wanted to be la-de-da,
go to parties 'avec le bourgeois'
I only wanted to sing my song well,
So I could ring a small bell in your heart
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
 
I was on the road,
sleeping between lorry lights, oh no
Stone-drunk and cold,
heading into a bad night, yeah, yeah
Just another bean in the star machine,
hi ho, here I go, here I go
 
I never wanted to be a star
buy my mum a Ferrari car
I only wanted to run my own race,
So I could win a small place in your heart
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
 
Nature found a way,
it picked me up off the dark side, yeah, yeah
Showed me another day, it made me sing
'I think I see the light'
Not another bean in the star machine,
oh no, this time I won't go
 
I never wanted to be a star,
I never wanted to travel far
I only wanted a little bit of love
So I could put a little love in my heart.

CRAZY

I'm crazy 'bout you baby, my my my
You love just drives me crazy, heaven knows why
So let me love you while, the moon's still high
Guarantee you we'll have a good time
Making love under the stars
 
I feel the earth move when I'm in your arms
Got the River Nile in my veins
And when you're with me, darling I could be
The white rabbit falling into space
Look at him go
 
Im crazy 'bout you baby, my my my
You love just drives me cuckoo, heaven knows why
So let me love you while, the moon's still high
Let yourself go and have a good time
Making love under the stars
 
I see the lights dance when we're holding hands
It's like magic being with you
And when I'm dogged out, I still dream about
All the simple things that you do
All the little things
 
Im crazy 'bout you baby, my my my
You love just drives me crazy, heaven knows why
So let me love you while, the moon's still high
Let yourself go and have a good time
Making love under the stars

SWEET JAMAICA

Other people come and go
They try to make it through
I have to smile and tell them no
Cause I only care for you
I only care for you
 
Yes, you are my sweet, sweet Jamaica
Country mama, brown country girl
When you touch me I, I feel so tall
If you let me down boy I'd be so small
Yes, you are my sweet Jamaica
Country mama, brown country girl
 
Everybody needs a friend
To brighten up their world
I know you'll never let me down
Cause you're not that kind of girl,
no no no
 
I want to see you round every turn
You're my world far as I'm concerned
Got no time to runabout
Just want to spend my life out with you,
only you
 
Yes, you are my sweet, sweet Jamaica,
Country mama, brown country girl
Oh, yes you are
Sweet Jamaica, oh brown country girl, ooh

CHILD FOR A DAY

I was a child
Who ran full of laughter
I was a child who lived for today
My eyes full of sunshine
My heart full of smiles
I was a child for a day
We were the children
Who sang in the morning
We were the children
Who laughed at the sun
Who listened to those who
spoke with their wisdom
We are the ones we would say, but
 
We're getting older as time goes by
A little older with everyday
We were the children of yesterday
 
We are the men who worry of nothing
We are the men who fight without aim
We listen to no one,
yet speak of our wisdom
We are the pawns in the game
 
We're getting older as time goes by
A little older with everyday
We were the children of yesterday
 
I was a child
Who ran full of laughter
I was a child who lived for today
My eyes full of sunshine
My heart full of smiles
I was a child for a day
 
We're getting older as time goes by
A little older with everyday
We were the children of yesterday
