Come Sail Away – Me First And The Gimme Gimmes

I’m sailing away
Set an open course for the virgin sea
I’ve got to be free
Free to face the life that’s ahead of me
On board, I’m the captain, so climb aboard
We’ll look for tomorrow on every shore
And we’ll try, oh Lord we’ll try, to carry on

I look to the sea
Reflections in the waves spark my memory
Some happy, some sad
I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had
We lived for happily forever, so the story goes
But somehow we missed out on that pot of gold
But we’ll try the best that we can, to carry on

A gathering of angels appeared above our heads
They gave to us this song of hope, and this is what they said:

Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me

Elenor – Me First And The Gimme Gimmes

You got a thing about you
I just can’t live without you
I really want you, Elenor, near me

Your looks intoxicate me
Even though your folks hate me
There’s no one like you, Elenor, really

Elenor, gee, I think you’re swell
And you’d really do me well
You’re my pride and joy, etcetera

Elenor, can I take the time
To ask you to speak your mind?
Tell me, that you love me better

I really think you’re groovy
Let’s go out to a movie
What do you say now, Elenor, can we?

They’ll turn the lights way down low
Maybe we won’t watch the show
I think I love you, Elenor – love me

Elenor, gee, I think you’re swell
And you’d really do me well
You’re my pride and joy, etcetera

Elenor, can I take the time
To ask you to speak your mind?
Tell me, that you love me better

Elenor, gee, I think you’re swell
Ah, ahhhh
Elenor, gee, I think you’re swell
Ah, ahhhh
Ah, ahhhh.

Wild World – Me First And The Gimme Gimmes

As-salamu alaykum, Mike.

Wa alaykumu salam.

Now that I’ve lost everything to you
You say you wanna start somethin’ new
And it’s breakin’ my heart that you’re leavin’
Baby I’m grievin’
But if you wanna leave, take good care
Hope you have a lot of nice things to wear
But then a lot of nice things turn bad out there

Ooo, baby baby, it’s a wild world
It’s hard to get by just upon a smile, girl
Ooo, baby baby, it’s a wild world
I’ll always remember you just like a child, girl

You know I’ve seen a lot of what the world can do
And it’s breakin’ my heart in two
Because I never wanna see you a sad girl
Don’t be a bad girl
But if you wanna leave, take good care
Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
But just remember there’s a lot of bad and beware

Ooo, baby baby, it’s a wild world
It’s hard to get by just upon a smile, girl
Ooo, baby baby, it’s a wild world
I’ll always remember you just like a child, girl

Baby, baby I love you
But if you wanna leave, take good care
Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
But just remember there’s a lot of bad and beware

Ooo, baby baby, it’s a wild world
Hard to get by just upon a smile, girl
Ooo, baby baby, it’s a wild world
I’ll always remember you just like a child, girl

Nobody Does It Better – Me First And The Gimme Gimmes

Nobody does it better
Makes me feel sad for the rest
Nobody does it half as good as you
Baby, you’re the best

I wasn’t lookin’, but somehow you found me
I tried to hide from your love light
Like heaven above me, the spy who loved me
Is keepin’ all my secrets safe tonight

And nobody does it better
Sometimes I wish someone could
Nobody does it quite the way you do
Why’d you have to be so good?

The way that you hold me, whenever you hold me
There’s some kind of magic inside you
That keeps me from runnin’, but just keep it comin’
How’d you learn to do the things you do?

And nobody does it better
Makes me feel sad for the rest
Nobody does it half as good as you
Baby, baby, darlin’ you’re the best

Baby, you’re the best
Baby, you’re the best
Baby, you’re the best

On My Mind – Me First And The Gimme Gimmes

Maybe I didn’t love you
Quite as often as I could have
Maybe I didn’t treat you
Quite as good as I should have
If I made you feel second best
Girl, I’m sorry I was blind

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Maybe I didn’t hold you
All those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you
I’m so happy that you’re mine
Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mine

Tell me
Tell me that your sweet love hasn’t died
Give me
Give me one more chance to keep you satisfied
Satisfied

Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

All My Lovin’ – Me First And The Gimme Gimmes

Close your eyes and I’ll kiss you
Tomorrow I’ll miss you
Remember I’ll always be true
And then while I’m away
I’ll write home every day
And I’ll send all my lovin’ to you

I’ll pretend that I’m kissing
The lips I am missing
And hope that my dreams will come true
And then while I’m away
I’ll write home every day
And I’ll send all my lovin’ to you

All my lovin’ I will send to you
All my lovin’, darling I’ll be true

Close your eyes and I’ll kiss you
Tomorrow I’ll miss you
Remember I’ll always be true
And then while I’m away
I’ll write home every day
And I’ll send all my lovin’ to you

All my lovin’ I will send to you
All my lovin’, darling I’ll be true

All my lovin’, all my lovin’
All my lovin’, all my lovin’

All my lovin’, all my lovin’
All my lovin’, I will give to you

Heart Of Glass – Me First And The Gimme Gimmes

“Dave Ron on the drums-“

Once had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing
But only to find
Mucho mistrust
Love’s gone behind

Once I had a love and it was divine
Soon found out I was losin’ my mind
Seemed like the real thing but I was so blind
Mucho mistrust
Love’s gone behind

In between “what I find is pleasing” and “I’m feeling fine”
Love is so confusin’
There’s no peace of mind
If I feel I’m losin’ you
It’s just no good, you teasin’ like you do

Once had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing
But only to find
Mucho mistrust
Love’s gone behind

Lost inside [an] adorable illusion and I cannot hide
I’m the one you’re usin’
Please don’t push me aside
We coulda made it cruisin’, yeah

It’s just no good, you teasin’ like you do
Ooo ooo ooo whoa (X 6)

“See, you know what? If you play the wrong chord at some point, that just means more notes. Which is kind of like, a better value?”

“That’s my philosophy, anyway.”

“That was…that was my mistake, you guys.”

“I know, I know.”

“Was it?”

“I put a B in there.”

“That’s what I’m sayin’ – more notes.”

“I played a B…”

“More notes than just your standard…”

“Don’t try to take my mistakes away, dude.”

Uptown Girl – Me First And The Gimme Gimmes

Uptown girl
She’s been livin’ in her uptown world
I bet she never had a back street guy
I bet her mama never told her why

I’m gonna try for an uptown girl
She’s been livin’ in her white bread world
As long as anyone with hot blood can
And now she’s looking for a downtown man
That’s what I am

And when she knows what
She wants from her time
And when she wakes up
She makes up her mind

She’ll see I’m not so tough
Just because
I’m in love with an uptown girl
You know I’ve seen her in her uptown world
She’s getting tired of her high class toys
And all her presents from her uptown boys
She’s got a choice

Uptown girl
You know I can’t afford to buy her pearls
But maybe someday when my ship comes in
She’ll understand what kind of guy I’ve been
And then I’ll win

And when she’s walkin’
She’s lookin’ so fine
And when she’s wakes up
She makes up her mind

She’ll say I’m not so tough
Just because
I’m in love
With and uptown girl
She’s been livin’ in her white bread world
As long as anyone with hot blood can
And now she’s lookin’ for a downtown man
That’s what I am

Uptown girl
My uptown girl
You know I’m in love
With an uptown girl

My uptown girl
You know I’m in love
With an uptown girl
My uptown girl
Uptown girl
My uptown girl

I Just Called To Say I Love You – Me First And The Gimme Gimmes

No New Year’s Day to celebrate
No chocolate-covered candy hearts to give away
No first of spring
No song to sing
In fact, here’s just another ordinary day

No April rain
No flowers bloom
No wedding Saturday within the month of June
But what it is, is something true
Made up of these three words that I must say to you

I just called to say I love you
I just called to say how much I care
I just called (he called) to say (to say) I love you
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart

No summer’s high
No warm July
No harvest moon to light one tender August night
No autumn breeze
No falling leaves
Not even time for birds to fly to southern skies

No Libra sun
No Halloween
No giving things to all the Christmas joy you bring
But what it is, though old so new
To fill your heart like no three words could ever do

I just called to say I love you
I just called to say how much I care
I just called to say I love you
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart

I just called (he called) to say (to say) I love you
I just called to say how much I care, I do
I just called to say I love you
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart
Of my heart, of my heart

The Longest Time – Me First And The Gimme Gimmes

If you said goodbye to me tonight
There would still be music left to write
What else could I do?
I’m so inspired by you
That hasn’t happened for the longest time

Once I thought my innocence was gone
Now I know that happiness goes on
That’s how you found me
When you put your arms around me
I haven’t been there for the longest time

Whoa, oh, oh, oh
For the longest time
Whoa, oh, oh, oh
For the longest…

I’m that voice you’re hearing in the hall
And the greatest miracle of all
Is how I need you
And how you needed me too
That hasn’t happened for the longest time

Maybe this won’t last very long
But you feel so right
And I could be wrong
Maybe I’ve been hopin’ too hard
But I’ve come this far
And it’s more than I hoped for

Who knows how much further we’ll go on?
Maybe I’ll be sorry when you’re gone
I’ll take my chances
I forgot how nice romance is
I haven’t been there for the longest time

Whoa, oh, oh, oh
For the longest time
Whoa, oh, oh, oh
For the longest time
Whoa, oh, oh
For the longest time
Whoa, oh, oh, oh

Runaway – Me First And The Gimme Gimmes

As I walk along, I wonder what went wrong
With our love, a love that was so strong
And as I still walk on, I think of the things we done
Together, while our hearts were young

I’m a-walkin’ in the rain
Tears are fallin’ and I feel the pain
Wishin’ you were here by me
To end this misery, and I wonder
I wa-wa-wa-wa-wonder, why
Why-why-why-why-why
She ran away, and I wonder
Where she will stay
My little runaway
A-run-run-run-run-runaway

I’m a-walkin’ in the rain
Tears are fallin’ and I feel the pain
Wishin’ you were here by me
To end this misery, and I wonder
I wa-wa-wa-wa-wonder, why
Why-why-why-why-why
She ran away, and I wonder
Where she will stay
My little runaway
A-run-run-run-run-runaway
A-run-run-run-run-runaway
A-run-run-run-run-runaway

I Only Want To Be With You – Me First And The Gimme Gimmes

I don’t know what it is that makes me love you so
I only know I never want to let you go
‘Cause you’ve started something, oh, can’t you see?
That ever since we met you had a hold on me
It happens to be true, I only want to be with you

It doesn’t matter where you go or what you do
I want to spend each moment of the day with you
Look, what has happened with just one kiss
I never knew that I could be in love like this
It’s crazy but it’s true, I only want to be with you

You stopped and smiled at me
And asked if I’d care to dance
I fell into your open arms
And I didn’t stand a chance
Now listen, honey

I just want to be beside you everywhere
As long as we’re together, honey, I don’t care
‘Cause you’ve started something, oh can’t you see?
That ever since we met you’ve had a hold on me

It happens to be true
I only want to be with you
No matter what you do
I only want to be with you

Me First and the Gimme Gimmes doing a punk rock cover of a Japanese song by Tulip.

Ah dakara konya dake wa kimi wo daite itai
