You wait, little girl, on an empty stage
For fate to turn the light on
Your life, little girl, is an empty page
That men will want to write on
To write on
You are sixteen going on seventeen
Baby, it's time to think
Better beware, be canny and careful
Baby, you're on the brink

You live your life in the songs you hear
On the rock and roll radio
And when a young girl doesn't have any friends
That's a really nice place to go
Folks hoping you'd turn out cool
But they had to take you out of school
You're a little touched you know, Angie baby
Lovers appear in your room each night
And they whirl you across the floor
But they always seem to fade away
When your daddy taps on your door
Angie girl, are you all right
Tell the radio good-night
All alone once more, Angie baby
Angie baby, you're a special lady
Living in a world of make-believe
Well, maybe

Only make believe I love you
Only make believe that you love me
Others find peace of mind in pretending;
Couldn't you? Couldn't I? Couldn't we
Make believe our lips are blending
In a phantom kiss or two or three?
Might as well make believe I love you
For to tell the truth, I do.

Oh yes I'm the great pretender (ooh ooh)
Pretending I'm doing well (ooh ooh)
My need is such I pretend too much
I'm lonely but no one can tell

Oh yes I'm the great pretender (ooh ooh)
Adrift in a world of my own (ooh ooh)
I play the game but to my real shame
You've left me to dream all alone
Too real is this feeling of make believe
Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal

One alone, to be my own
I alone, to know her caresses
One to be, eternally
The one my worshiping soul possesses

At her call, I'd give my all
All my life and all my love enduring
This would be a magic World to me
If she were mine alone

A love supreme
Ah, but I was so much older then ... I'm younger than that now

Oh, it seemed forever stopped today
All the lonely hearts in London
Caught a plane and flew away
And all the best women are married
All the handsome men are gay
You feel deprived
Yeah, are you questioning your size?
Is there a tumor in your humor
Are there bags under your eyes?
Do you leave dents where you sit
Are you getting on a bit?
Will you survive?
You must survive

When there's no love in town
This new century keeps bringing you down
All the places you have been
Trying to find a love supreme
A love supreme

At first I was afraid, I was petrified
Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side
But then I spent so many nights thinking how you did me wrong
And I grew strong
And I learned how to get along
And so you're back
From outer space
I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face
I should have changed that stupid lock, I should have made you leave your key
If I'd known for just one second you'd be back to bother me
Go on now, go, walk out the door
Just turn around now
'Cause you're not welcome anymore
Weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
Do you think I'd crumble
Did you think I'd lay down and die?
Oh no, not I, I will survive

 I ride my bike, I roller skate, don't drive no car
Don't go too fast, but I go pretty far
For somebody who don't drive
I been all around the world
Some people say, I done all right for a girl
Well, I got a brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key
I think that we should get together and try them out you see

Oh I loved that, loved Melanie. Have you heard her, 'I don't eat animals'.

This one really is quite dreadful:-

Bad bitches to the right, weak bitches to the left
Like I said man we here to party
You do what you gone do
If you smoke, you gone smoke
If you drink, you gone drink
If you gone roll, you gone roll
Do your thing just don't step on these all white G Fazos
Gang! Turn up

[Hook]
I'm rollin, I'm rollin I'm rollin, I'm rollin
I'm rollin, I'm rollin I'm rollin, I'm rollin
I'm rollin, I'm rollin I'm rollin, I'm rollin
I'm rollin, I'm rollin I'm rollin, I'm rollin
I'm bussin' it's bussin', I'm bussin' it's bussin'
Somebody pass me a water or something
I'm bussin', I'm bussin', I'm bussin', it's bussin'
Somebody pass me a water or something
I'm rollin, I'm rollin I'm rollin, I'm rollin
I'm rollin, I'm rollin I'm rollin, I'm rollin
I'm rollin, I'm rollin I'm rollin, I'm rollin
I'm rollin, I'm rollin I'm rollin, I'm rollin

Listen to the story
 I left a good job in the city
 Working for the man every night and day
 And I never lost one minute of sleeping
 Worrying 'bout the way things might have been
 Big wheel keep on turning
 Proud mary keep on burning
 And we're rolling, rolling
 Rolling on the river

Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain
Telling me just what a fool I've been
I wish that it would go and let me cry in vain
And let me be alone again
The only girl I care about has gone away
Looking for a brand new start
But little does she know
That when she left that day
Along with her she took my heart
Rain please tell me now does that seem fair
For her to steal my heart away when she don't care
I can't love another when my hearts somewhere far away
The only girl I care about has gone away
Looking for a brand new start

I'm singing in the rain
Just singing in the rain
What a glorious feeling
I'm happy again
I'm laughing at clouds
So dark up above
The sun's in my heart
And I'm ready for love

It's five and I'm driving home again
 It's hard to believe that it's my last time
 The man on the wireless cries again
 It's over, it's over

 Dancing with tears in my eyes
 Weeping for the memory of a life gone by
 Dancing with tears in my eyes
 Living out a memory of a love that died

I've been drivin' all night, my hand's wet on the wheel
There's a voice in my head that drives my heel
It's my baby callin', says I need you here
And it's a half past four and I'm shiftin' gear
When she is lonely and the longing gets too much
She sends a cable comin' in from above
Don't need no phone at all
...
Ah, but I was so much older then ... I'm younger than that now

Golden days before they end
Whisper secrets to the wind
Your baby won't be near you any more
Tender nights before they fly
Send falling stars that seem to cry
Your baby doesn't want you any more
It's over

For love may come and tap you on the shoulder
 Some starless night
 Just in case you feel you wanna hold her
 You'll have a pocket full of starlight

 Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket
 Never let it fade away
 Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket
 Save it for a rainy day

I'm wishing on a star
To follow where you are
I'm wishing on a dream
To follow what it means
I'm wishing on a star
To follow where you are
I'm wishing on a dream
To follow what it means
And I wish on all the rainbows that I see
I wish on all the people who really dream
And I'm wishing on tomorrow, praying it'll come
And I'm wishing on all the lovin' we've ever done

You ain't got the heart
To break me in two,
You ain't got the soul
To run it like I do,
You ain't got the will
Now the toll is over due,
I'm talking to you
Hey, I'm talking to you
Yeah
I'm so high, calling
Make me a star
Starmaker
Cause you've always been a giver
Not a taker
But in our hearts
The stars break us
And they never let you go
Even when you leave your mark
Starmaker

Ground Control to Major Tom
Commencing countdown, engines on
Check ignition and may God's love be with you
Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six, Five, Four, Three, Two, One, Lift off
This is Ground Control to Major Tom
You've really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare
This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I'm stepping through the door
And I'm floating in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today
For here
Am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do

There's a starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us
But he thinks he'd blow our minds
There's a starman waiting in the sky
He's told us not to blow it
'Cause he knows it's all worthwhile
He told me
Let the children lose it
Let the children use it
Let all the children boogie

We love to boogie
 We love to boogie
 Jitterbug boogie

 Bolan pretty boogie
 We love to boogie
 On a Saturday night

Belinda Mae Fender's got a Cadillac Bone
 Jenny's lost her cherry walking all the way home
 The passions of the Earth blasted it's mind
 Now it's neat sweet ready for the moon based grind

Oh I love to love
But my baby just loves to dance
He wants to dance, He loves to dance, He's got to dance
Oh I love to love
But my baby just loves to dance
Oh I love to love
But there's no time for our romance
No no no oh

I love to love
But my baby just loves to dance

A fine romance, my good fellow
You take romance, I'll take jello
You're calmer than the seals
In the Arctic Ocean
At least they flap their fins
To express emotion
A fine romance with no quarrels
With no insults and all morals
I've never mussed the crease
In your blue serge pants
I never get the chance
This is a fine romance

You should've known by the tone of my voice, maybe
But you didn't listen
You played dead, but you never bled,
Instead you lay still in the grass, all coiled up and hissing
