Track Name: I could write a book
If they asked me, I could write a book
About the way you walk and whisper and look
I could write a preface on how we met
That the world would never forget

And the simple secret of the plot
Is just to tell them that I love you a lot
And the world discovers as my book ends
How to make two lovers of friends
Track Name: Let's fall in love
Let's fall in love
Why shouldn't we fall in love?
Our hearts are made of it
Let's take a chance
Why be afraid of it

Let's close our eyes and make our own paradise
Little we know of it, still we can try
To make a go of it

We might have been meant for each other
To be or not to be
Let our hearts discover

Let's fall in love
Why shouldn't we fall in love
Now is the time for it, while we are young
Let's fall in love
Track Name: I should care
I should care, I should go around weeping
I should care, I should go without sleeping
But strangely enough, I sleep well
'cept for a dream or two
But then I count my sheep well
Funny how sheep can lull you to sleep

I should care, I should let it upset me
I should care but it just doesn't get me
Maybe I won't find someone as wonderful as you
But I should care and I do.
Track Name: This can't be love
This can't be love because I feel so well
no sobs, no sorrows ,no sighs

This can't be love I get no dizzy spells
My head is not in the skies

My heart does not stand still
just it repeats (it beats)
this is too sweet to be love
This can't be love because I feel so well
And yet I long to look in your eyes
Track Name: (The Old Man from) The Old Country
Hey, you old man sit-in by the lonesome road
Its bout time your quit-tin, life so tired and low
You’re so sad and lonely, got no family
Just and old man from some old country.

You aint sired no chillen, aint nune by your side
You left all your women, aint you satisfied
Don’t just sit there clinging to a memory
Of a love left in some old country.

Don’t no body need you old man
Cause no body calls your name
No body but a whisper what a dog gone shame.
So the cold grim reaper has no sympathy
You won’t see your home land except through me.
Track Name: Exactly like you
I know why I waited
Know why I've been blue
Prayed each night for someone
exactly like you

Why should we spend some money
On a show or two
No one does tho se love songs
Exactly like you

You make me feel so grand
I wanna give this world to you
You make me understand
These foolish little dreams I'm dreaming
And schemes I'm scheming

Now I know why my mama
She taught me to be true
She knew just around the corner
Was somebody like you
Track Name: Lover man (Oh where can you be)
I don't know why but I'm feeling so sad
I long to try something I never had
Never had no kissin'
Oh, what I've been missin'
Lover man, oh, where can you be?

The night is cold and I'm so alone
I'd give my soul just to call you my own
Got a moon above me
But no one to love me
Lover man, oh, where can you be?

I've heard it said
That the thrill of romance
Can be like a heavenly dream

I go to bed with a prayer
That you'll make love to me
Strange as it seems

Someday we'll meet
And you'll dry all my tears
Then whisper sweet
Little things in my ear
Hugging and a-kissing
Oh, what I've been missing
Lover man, oh, where can you be?
Track Name: Invitation
You and your smile
hold strange invitation
Somehow it seems
We've shared our dreams,
ohh but where?
Time after time
in a room full of strangers
out of the blue
yeah, suddenly you're there
Wherever I go,
you're the glow of temptation
Clumsing my way
in the grey of the dawn
And always your eyes smile
at strange invitation
Then you're gone
Wait! No!
Where have you gone?
How long must I stay
in a world of illusion
But where are you
You were so near
but then you were so far a apart
Hoping you'll say with a warm invitation
Where have you been, daddy,
come into my heart
Track Name: Just Squeeze Me
Treat me sweet and gentle

When you say goodnight

Just squeeze me

But please don't tease me

I get sentimental

When you hold me tight

Just squeeze me

But please don't tease me

Missing you since you went away

Singing the blues away each day

Counting the nights and waiting for you

I'm in the mood to let you know

I never knew I loved you so

Please say you love me too

When I get this feelin'

I'm in ecstasy to squeeze me

But please don't tease me
