END OF THE WORLD

(Kent/Dee)

 Why does the sun go on shining
 Why does the sea rush to shore
 Don't they know it's the end of the world
 When you don't love me anymore

 Why does my heart go on beating
 Why do these eyes of mine cry
 Don't they know it's the end of the world
 It ended when you said goodbye

 I wake up in the morning and I wonder
 Why everything's the same as it was
 And I can't understand, no I can't understand
 Why life goes on the way it does

 Why do the birds go on singing
 Why do the stars shine above
 Don't they know it's the end of the world
 It ended when I lost your love

 ------ lead guitar ------

 Don't they know it's the end of the world
 It ended when you said goodbye

 

CAN'T YOU HEAR MY HEARTBEAT

(Carter/Lewis)

 Every time I see you lookin' my way
 Baby, baby, can't you hear my heartbeat?
 In the car or walking down the highway
 Baby, baby, can't you hear my heartbeat?

 When you move up closer to me
 I get a feelin' that's ooo-wee
 Can't you hear the poundin' of my heartbeat
 'cause you're the one I love, you're the one I love

 When I feel you put your arms around me
 Baby, baby, can't you hear my heartbeat?
 Then I'm glad, I'm mighty glad I found you
 Baby, baby, can't you hear my heartbeat?

 When you asked me to meet your Ma
 I knew that baby, we'd be going far
 Can't you hear the poundin' of my heartbeat?
 'cause you're the one I love, you're the one I love

 ------ rhythm guitar ------

 All my friends are cryin' out to meet you
 Baby, baby, can't you hear my heartbeat?
 Now's the time to go and see the preacher
 Baby, baby, can't you hear my heartbeat?

 Wedding bells are gonna chime
 Baby, baby, you're gonna be mine
 Can't you hear the poundin' of my heartbeat
 'cause you're the one I love, you're the one I love

 Baby, baby, can't you hear my heartbeat?
 Baby, baby, can't you hear my heartbeat?
 Baby, baby, can't you hear my heartbeat?

 

THERE'S A KIND OF HUSH ALL OVER THE WORLD

(Stephens/Reed)

 There's a kind of hush all over the world tonight
 All over the world you can hear the sounds of lovers in love
 You know what I mean
 Just the two of us and nobody else in sight
 There's nobody else and I'm feeling good just holding you tight

 So listen very carefully
 Closer now and you will see what I mean
 It isn't a dream
 The only sound that you will hear
 Is when I whisper in your ear
 I love you forever and ever

 There's a kind of hush all over the world tonight
 All over the world you can hear the sounds of lovers in love
 La-la-la-la-la-la-la
 La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
 La-la-la-la-la la-la-la-la-la
 La-la-la-la-la

 So listen very carefully
 Closer now and you will see what I mean
 It isn't a dream
 The only sound that you will hear
 Is when I whisper in your ear
 I love you forever and ever

 There's a kind of hush all over the world tonight
 All over the world people just like us are fallin' in love
 Yeah, they're fallin' in love
 Hush, they're fallin' in love
 Hush

 

MRS. BROWN YOU'VE GOT A LOVELY DAUGHTER

(Trevor Peacock)

 Mrs. Brown you've got a lovely daughter
 Girls as sharp as her are somethin' rare
 But it's sad, she doesn't love me now
 She's made it clear enough it ain't no good to pine

 She wants to return those things I bought her
 Tell her she can keep them just the same
 Things have changed, she doesn't love me now
 She's made it clear enough it ain't no good to pine

 Walkin' about, even in a crowd, well
 You'll pick her out, makes a bloke feel so proud

 If she finds that I've been round to see you (round to see you)
 Tell her that I'm well and feelin' fine (feelin' fine)
 Don't let on, don't say she's broke my heart
 I'd go down on my knees but it's no good to pine

 Walkin' about, even in a crowd, well
 You'll pick her out, makes a bloke feel so proud

 If she finds that I've been round to see you (round to see you)
 Tell her that I'm well and feelin' fine (feelin' fine)
 Don't let on, don't say she's broke my heart
 I'd go down on my knees but it's no good to pine

 Mrs. Brown you've got a lovely daughter (lovely daughter)
 Mrs. Brown you've got a lovely daughter (lovely daughter)
 Mrs. Brown you've got a lovely daughter (lovely daughter)
 Mrs. Brown you've got a lovely daughter (lovely daughter)



 

SILHOUETTES

(Slay/Crewe)

 Took a walk and passed your house late last night
 All the shades were pulled and drawn way down tight
 From within, the dim light cast two silhouettes on the shade
 Oh what a lovely couple they made

 Put his arms around your waist, held you tight
 Kisses I could almost taste in the night
 Wondered why I'm not the guy who's silhouette's on the shade
 I couldn't hide the tears in my eyes

 Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah...
 Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah...

 ------ lead guitar ------

 Lost control and rang your bell, I was sore
 Let me in or else I'll beat down your door
 When two strangers who have been two silhouettes on the shade
 Said to myself "you're on the wrong block"

 Rushed out to your house with wings on my feet
 Loved you like I'd never loved you my sweet
 Vowed that you and I would be two silhouettes on the shade
 All of our days, two silhouettes on the shade

 Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah...
 Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah...


 

(WHAT A) WONDERFUL WORLD

(Cooke/Alpert/Adler)

 Don't know much about history
 Don't know much biology
 Don't know much about science books
 Don't know much about the french I took
 But I do know that I love you
 And I know that if you loved me too
 What a wonderful world this would be

 Don't know much about geography
 Don't know much trigonometry
 Don't know much about algebra
 Don't know what a slide rule is for
 But I know that one and one is two
 And if this one could be with you
 What a wonderful world this would be

 Now I don't claim to be an A student
 But I'm tryin' to be
 Oh maybe by being an A student, baby
 I can win your love for me

 Don't know much about history
 Don't know much biology
 Don't know much about science books
 Don't know much about the french I took
 But I do know that I love you
 And I know that if you loved me too
 What a wonderful world this would be

 ------ lead guitar ------

 But I do know that I love you
 And I know that if you loved me too
 What a wonderful world this would be


BUS STOP

 

Bus stop, wet day, she's there
I said please share my umbrella
Bus stop, bus goes, she stays, love grows
under my umbrella
All that summer we enjoyed it
Wind and rain and shine
That umbrella we employed it
By August she was mine

Every morning I would see her
Waiting at the stop
Sometimes she'd shop and she would show me
What she bought
Other people stared as if we were both quite insane
Someday my name and hers are going to be the same

That's the way the whole thing started
Silly but it's true
I'm thinking of a sweet romance
Beginning in their queue
Came the sun, the ice was melting
No more sheltering now
How nice to think that that umbrella
Led me to a vow

Every morning I would see her waiting
At the stop
Sometimes she'd shop and she would
Show me what she bought
All the peopled stared as if we were both quite insane
Someday my name and hers are going to be the same

Bus stop, wet day, she's there
I said please share my umbrella
Bus stop, bus goes, she stays, love grows
Under my umbrella
All that summer we enjoyed it
Wind and rain and shine
That umbrella we employed it
By August she was mine.
