Time on my hands, you in my arms
Nothing but love in view
Then if you fall, once and for all
I'll see my dreams come true
Moments to spare
With someone you care tor
One love affair for two
And so with time on my hands
And you in my arms
And love in my heart all for you

You won't ever have to worry
You don't ever have to cry
I'll be there beside you
To dry your weeping eyes

So darlin' tell me
That you'll be true
'Cause there's no doubt in my mind
I know what I want to do

And just as sure
One and one is two
I just got, I got to take care of you
I just got to take care of you
Take care of you

My baby don`t care for shows, my baby don`t care for clothes,
My baby just cares for me.
My baby don`t care for furs and laces,
My baby don`t care for high-toned places,
My baby don`t care for rings or other expensive things,

She`s sensible as can be.
My baby don`t care who knows it,
My baby just cares for me.

My baby`s no Crosby fan, Dick Tracy is not her man,
My baby just cares for me.
My baby don`t care for Mr. Tibbits,

She`d rather have me around to kibbitz.
Roy Rogers is not her style, and even Clark Gable`s smile
Is something that she can`t see.
(Oh, you lucky so-and-so)

I wonder what`s wrong with baby,
My baby just cares for me.

Some boys kiss me
Some boys hug me
I think they're ok
If they don't give me proper credit
I just walk away

They can beg and they can plead
But they can't see the light (that's right)
'Cause the boy with the cold hard cash
Is always Mister Right

'Cause we are living in a material world
And I am a material girl
You know that we are living in a material world
And I am a material girl

The French are glad to die for love
They delight in fighting duels
But I prefer a man who lives
And gives expensive jewels
A kiss on the hand may be quite continental
But diamonds are a girl's best friend
A kiss may be grand but it won't pay the rental
On your humble flat, or help you at the automat
Men grow cold as girls grow old
And we all lose our charms in the end
But square cut or pear shaped
These rocks don't lose their shape
Diamonds are a girl's best friend

Beautiful music, dangerous rhythm
 It's something daring, the continental
 A way of dancing, that's really ultra-new
 It's very subtle, the continental
 Because it does what you want it to do

 It has a passion, the continental
 An invitation to moonlight and romance
 It's quite the fashion, the continental
 Because you tell of your love while you dance

 Your lips whisper so tenderly
 Her eyes answer your song
 Two bodies swing, the continental
 And you are saying just what you're thinking of
 So keep on dancing, the continental
 For it's the song of romance and of love

I'll always remember the song they were playin'
The first time we danced and I knew
As we swayed to the music and held to each other
I fell in love with you

Could I have this dance for the rest of my life?
Would you be my partner every night?
When we're together it feels so right
Could I have this dance for the rest of my life?

I'll always remember that magic moment
When I held you close to me
As we moved together, I knew forever
You're all I'll ever need

Put on your red shoes and dance the blues
Let's dance
To the song they're playing on the radio
Let's sway
While color lights up your face
Let's sway
Sway through the crowd to an empty space

If you say run, I'll run with you
If you say hide, we'll hide
Because my love for you
would break my heart in two
If you should fall into my arms
And tremble like a flower

Let's dance
Let's dance
Let's dance

I don't want to be the kind to hesitate,
Be too shy, wait too late
I don't care what they say other lovers do,
I just want to dance with you.

I gotta feeling that you have a heart like mine,
So let it show, let it shine.
If we have a chance to make one heart of two,
I just want to dance with you.

I want to dance with you, twirl you all around the floor
That's what they intended dancin' for,
I just want to dance with you.
I want to dance with you, hold you in my arms once more,
That's what they invented dancin' for,
I just want to dance with you.

Well, do you wanna dance and hold my hand
Squeeze me, baby,
I'm your man
Oh baby, do you wanna dance
Well, do you wanna dance under the moonlight
Squeeze and hug me all through the night
Oh baby, do you wanna dance
Do you, do you, do you, do you wanna dance
Do you, do you, do you, do you wanna dance
Do you, do you, do you, do you wanna dance

Last dance, last chance for love
Yes, it's my last chance, for romance, tonight
I need you, by me,
Beside me, to guide me,
To hold me, to scold me,
'Cause when I'm bad
So let's dance, the last dance

Let's dance, the last dance
Let's dance, this last dance toniiiiiight
Last dance, last chance for love
Yes it's my last chance
For romance tonight

A fine romance, with no kisses
A fine romance, my friend this is
We should be like a couple of hot tomatoes
But you're as cold as yesterday's mashed potatoes
A fine romance, you won't nestle
A fine romance, you won't wrestle
I might as well play bridge
With my old maid aunt
I haven't got a chance
This is a fine romance.

I wouldn't usually post a song's lyrics in entirety but this is priceless:-

We've been together for so very long
But now things are changing, oh I wonder what's wrong?
Seems you don't want me around
The passion is gone and the flame's died down
I guess I lost a little bit of self-esteem
That time that you made it with the whole hockey team
You used to think I was nice
Now you tell all your friends that I'm the Antichrist

Oh, why did you disconnect the brakes on my car?
That kind of thing is hard to ignore
Got a funny feeling you don't love me anymore

I knew that we were having problems when
You put those piranhas in my bathtub again
You're still the light of my life

Oh darling, I'm beggin', won't you put down that knife?
You know, I even think it's kinda cute the way
You poison my coffee just a little each day
I still remember the way that you laughed
When you pushed me down that elevator shaft
Oh, if you don't mind me asking, what's this poisonous cobra
Doing in my underwear drawer?

Sometime I get to thinking you don't love me any more
You slammed my face down on the barbecue grill
Now my scars are all healing, but my heart never will
You set my house on fire
You pulled out my chest hairs with an old pair of pliers

Oh, you think that I'm ugly and you say that I'm cheap
You shaved off my eyebrows while I was asleep
You drilled a hole in my head
Then you dumped me in a drainage ditch and left me for dead

Oh, you know this really isn't like you at all
You never acted this way before
Honey, something tells me you don't love me any more, oh no no
Got a funny feeling you don't love me anymore

No more talk of darkness
Forget these wide-eyed fears
I'm here, nothing can harm you
My words will warm and calm you
Let me be your freedom
Let daylight dry your tears
I'm here, with you, beside you
To guard you and to guide you
Say you love me every waking moment
Turn my head with talk of summertime
Say you need me with you now and always
Promise me that all you say is true
That's all I ask of you

Oh my God, I feel it in the air
Telephone wires above
Are sizzlin' like a snare
Honey I'm on fire, I feel it everywhere
Nothin' scares me anymore

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That baby, you the best

I got that summertime, summertime sadness
Su-su-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness oh
Ah, but I was so much older then ... I'm younger than that now

I call you when I need you, my heart's on fire
You come to me, come to me wild and wired
Oh, you come to me, give me everything I need
Give me a life time of promises and a world of dreams
Speak the language of love like you know what it means
Mm, and it can't be wrong, take my heart and make it strong, babe
You're simply the best, better than all the rest
Better than anyone, anyone I ever met
I'm stuck on your heart, I hang on every word you say
Tear us apart, baby, I would rather be dead

You're just another that failed me again
I wanted more than love
I wanted suffocation
Tie me to your leash
Drag me all over the ground
I want to go wherever you go
Let me be your pair of shoes
Walk, walk all over me
Walk, walk all over me

Sometimes I love you so much
I wanna tear you apart
I just wanna be your everything
I just wanna be your everything
I just wanna be your everything

You're my everything
Underneath the sun
You're my everything
Rolled up into one

You're my only dream
My only real reality
You're my idea
Of a perfect personality

You're my everything
Everything I need
You're the song I sing
And the book I read

You're a way beyond belief
And just to make it brief
You're my winter, summer, spring
My everything

Every time we lie awake
After every hit we take
Every feeling that I get
But I haven't missed you yet

Every roommate kept awake by
Every sigh and scream we make
All the feelings that I get
But I still don't miss you yet

Only when I start to think about it
I hate everything about you
Why do I love you
You hate everything about me
Why do you love me

Why do I love you?
Why do you love me?
Why should there be two
Happy as we?
Can you see
The why or wherefore
I should be
The one you care for?
You're a lucky boy,
I am lucky, too.
All our dreams of joy
Seem to come true.
Maybe that's because you love me,
Maybe that's why I love you.

There you are rose amongst the weeds
Subtle as the summer breeze, you're perfectly seen
A gift to me, you shine so brightly like a diamond in the sky
And you're the reason why you opened up my eyes
You're like a portrait or a picture painted very long ago
A moment frozen in time immortalized in my mind
Never lost a precious find a poetic silhouette for my eyes

Fortunately you, you have me, I have you
It's fortunate for us, we have love, love has us
It's fortunate that we, we have time, on our side
Never take for granted, that we are so fortunate to be

Picture yourself in a boat on a river
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes

Cellophane flowers of yellow and green
Towering over your head
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes
And she's gone

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds

I looked to the sky
Where an elephant's eye
Was looking at me
From a bubblegum tree
And all that I knew
The hole in my shoe
Was letting in water (letting in water)

I walked through a field
That just wasn't real
Where a hundred tin soldiers
Would shoot at my shoulder
And all that I knew
The hole in my shoe
Was letting in water (letting in water)

There's a bright golden haze on the meadow,
There's a bright golden haze on the meadow,
The corn is as high as an elephant's eye,
An' it looks like its climbing clear up to the sky.
Oh what a beautiful morning,
Oh what a beautiful day,
I've got a wonderful feeling,
Everything's going my way.

The heart is a bloom
Shoots up through the stony ground
There's no room
No space to rent in this town
You're out of luck
And the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck
And you're not moving anywhere
You thought you'd found a friend
To take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand
In return for grace

It's a beautiful day
Sky falls, you feel like
It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
