I said Jesus, I said Jesus, I said Jesus Christ, you're tall
I bet nobody, I bet nobody, I bet nobody wanted to dance with you at all
I said Jesus, I said Jesus, there hardly ain't no room here for you at all
I said Jesus. I said Jesus, I said Jesus Christ, you're tall.

Well, we could dribble our way down a courtship, get married for a little while
I would shoot a little love inside your basket, mama, and in a little while we'd have a child
He'd be a little boy, he'd be a little boy but he'll get taller as the time goes by
He'd be a little boy, he'd be a little boy but pretty soon he'll hear the other boys cry.

Because they're saying to him
Jesus, they'd say Jesus, they'd say Jesus Christ you're tall
I bet some day, at least some day, I hope he finds a basketball
So maybe a big scout from a big town team will come and sign him to the meadow larks
And then ..

Nilsson

One day Tarzan said to Jane while they were walking through the garden
'One thing I must explain before we go much farther'
'I know you'd like a bright new dress with a bright new yellow linin'
'But every time you want on,e darlin', I got to fight a lion'.

And it's a jungle out there
It's a jungle out there
There ain't no way around it
At least I've never found it
It's a jungle out there
It's a jungle out there.

Way back in the city, where the city people smile
Whenever they need a new pair of shoes, they don't kill no crocodile
And when the nighttime falls around them, they stay in their hotels
But out here, darlin', when the night time comes, there's nothin' to do but yell.

'Cause it's a jungle out there
You better say a prayer
Even if they eat you
And eventually they will
It's a jungle out there, ooh, you know.

One day Tarzan said to Jane : 'I want to talk to you about the boy'
'He's been actin' very strange lately, he thinks a tool's a toy'
'Why only yesterday while I was out there fixin' up the vine'
'He said : 'Dad, I'm gonna take a swing' - but he grabbed a hold of my vine, ow.

It's a jungle out there
Hey, you better beware
There ain't no way around it
At least I've never found it
It's a jungle out there
It's a jungle out there.

Now the moral of this story is if you end up out there too
Think of all them snakes you might have snaken up on you
But on the other hand, my darlin', you don't have to care
'Cause no matter how far, no matter how long, no matter how cold or fair
High or low, up or down, it's still a jungle out there.

It's a jungle out there
It's a jungle out there
There ain't no way around it
At least I've never found it
Yeah, it's a jungle out there.

Down by the sea
That's where we wanted to be
With nothing to do

Down by the sea
Don't tell me that is what
You wanted to do

We sold the house, the car, the TV, the dog
Hopin' we were on our way

Down by the sea
Don't tell me that is what
You wanted to do

We had the children in number
John, Phillip, Susan
Alice, Carol, Teddy, Bobby, Jenny
I think we had one too many
But I hope I'm not out of line

Now it's forty years after the laughs at the wedding
And I'm dreading retirement, what would I do?
The children are married
And now the big question is "Was it all worth it?"
And who buries who?
You bury me or I bury you?

So, down by the seaside
From now until we're parted
Each day brings us back where we started
Closer to seeing each other, much closer
And closer to seeing dream come true
Don't tell me that isn't what you wanted to do

. . .


Nilsson

Well, it's a little late for Christmas but have one anyway
And while I'm on the subject, baby, have a happy birthday
How's your father ? How's your mom ?
Don't it make you itch a little when you know they've got the bomb ?
Boy, it's been weird out here lately but I guess that's OK too
'Cause television is here to save us and tell us what to do.

Kojak, Kojak, Kojak,Columbo
Sell me an old one, sell me some gumbo
Tell me a new one, at least once a night
Show me an old one but don't turn out your love light.

You've got nineteen inches, baby, and that's a real good size
I could lie there on the floor and just look at you all night long
I could just twist your knobs right off and fool around with you
I don't need no TV guide to tell me what to do.

Kojak, Kojak, Kojak,Columbo
Sell me an old one, sell me some gumbo
Tell me a new one, at least once a night
Tell me an old one but save out your love light.

Ah, and when I get too old, too old to rock and roll
I'll sit in my unrockin' chair, babe, and use my remote control.

Kojak, Kojak, Kojak, Columbo
Sell me an old one, sell me some gumbo
Tell me a new one, at least once a night
Show me an old one but don't turn out your love light.

You've got nineteen inches, baby, that's a real good size
I'd like to poke my eyes inside you, baby, and just look around
I love your cute little rabbit ears, I love your cable and your box
And when I turn out the light at night, baby, I hope that light never stops
Your love light, Kojak.

Nobody loved her, it was easy to see
That made it easier for me
The boys never fought over her company
That made it easy for me

Love so bright could only blind us
How could reason hope to find us
Hiding in the Milky Way
Without a star to shine the way?

Sandcastles fell from the tears in our eyes
That made it easier to see
Now the dream's over and I realize
That makes it easy for me

. . .


Nilsson

Soon you will be sleeping
And you'll wake up in a dream
Close your eyes, it's time to go to sleep.

Soon it will be morning
Time to start another day
But now it's time for you to go to sleep.

So turn out the light, it's time to say goodnight
Turn out the light and hold each other tight
Don't be afraid to hold each other tight
Pull down the shades, it's time to say goodnight.

I knew a man from Argentina and he could not sleep
He worried all day and night about this problem
You know he worried so hard, he worried so long
He worried so much he couldn't sleep
And a man who never sleeps can never have a dream
Oh, don't let this happen to you.

Turn out the light, it's time to say goodnight
Turn out the light, hold each other
Don't be afraid
Pull down the shade.

. . .


Each drop of rain falls a million times its own length
To crash upon this floor, and with its pain cause life to start anew
Each second fights its way magically through your entire life
Like a salmon traveling upstream to its final destination
And with his goal in sight, life ends - to start anew
Each man lives far beyond his span
And writhes the life of all mankind
And not until his kind has passed will he...
And not until he dies
Each second of your life conclude
And not until it crashes against the Earth
Will a drop of rain have fallen
Not until all men are dead
Will you die
And life will start anew
And you will have traveled a million times your own time
And magically
And magically
Salmon falls

Magically

Nilsson

In a cardboard town in Puget Sound
A crackerjack was jackin' up the bottom of a frown
While a little wooden man and his tiny papermate
Danced a crazy jigsaw puzzle and they laughed at all the hate.

The hated hate was locked up in an iron cage
So all the people passing by could see
Which only added to the rage hate felt
When laughter winked an eye.

In a cardboard town in Puget Sound
A crackerjack was jackin' up the bottom of the town
While a little wooden man and his tiny papermate
Danced a crazy jigsaw puzzle to the tune of paper moon.

Oh, it wouldn't be make believe if you believed in me
Oh, it wouldn't be make believe if you believed in me.

In a cardboard town in Puget Sound
A crackerjack was jackin' up the other side of town
While a little wooden man and his tiny papermate
Danced a crazy jigsaw puzzle and they laughed at all the hate.

The hated hate was locked up in an iron cage
So all the people passing by could see
Which only added to the rage hate felt
When laughter winked an eye.

In a cardboard town in Puget Sound
A crackerjack was jackin' up the other side of town
While a little wooden man.

Nilsson

Hey, baby, do you come here often ? What's your sign ?

Hey, I saw you dancing with some friends of mine
Come on, you know, they told me
If I walked up slowly and I gave you the eye
(You might like it)
(They said you never made it with a Gemini).

And you know they never lie
Because they're friends of mine
You know, you know, you know they'd rather die
And that's why.

Hey, baby, do you come here often ?
Would you like some wine ?
Hey, mama, I'd like to talk to you about your moon sign.

Good good good golly
I got a hole in my pocket ‘cause you look so fine
Hey, mama, don't let me down in front of these friends of mine.

Because they're standing in the door
They're expecting me to score
You got a pair of forty-fours and what's more more more.

Hey, baby, do you come here often ? What's your sign ?
Hey, mama, I'd like to talk to you about your moon sign.

Because they're standing in the door
They're expecting me to score
You got a pair of forty-fours and what's more more more.

Hey,baby, I love you
Run away, baby, I need you
Hey, baby, I love you
Run away, yeah, baby, I need you.

Nilsson

Home is where you come from
Home is what you're lookin' for
Homes for all the homeless people
All over the world.

Home is what you run from
Home is what you're cookin' for
Home can make your heart beat faster
As you're near the door.

Oh no, it's not a savings and loan
Oh no, that's true
And what a telephone call in the middle of the night won't do
You know a picture in your mind of home will
Yes it will, yes it will.

Home sweet home
Oh, home sweet home
Oh, how I wish I could go home.

I am a lonely frog lookin' for a home
Peepin' out of the fog, lookin' for a home
I'm a millionaire, oh yeah, oh yeah
I hope to go to the moon, oh boy, oh boy
But all the money in the world, hot money, yeah
Won't bring me home enough soon.

Home is where you come from
Home is what you're lookin' for
Homes for all the homeless people
All over the world.

Home is what you run from
Home is what you're lookin' for
Home can make your heart beat faster
As you're near the door.

Our Father

Who art in Heaven

Eh

The other day a friend of mine

Said, he said, that god's not even with us

He said that God is really dead

He said, Oh pal, a fact's a fact

You can't believe that magic act

I said I don't, and that was that

I said

Good for God

Good for God

He goes and makes the planet blue

And all the thanks he gets from you

Is look at all the poo-poo in the yard

Good for God

That fella's life is very hard

He knows each time a sparrow falls

Believing Man's the always cause

Good for God

Good for God

I bet he's got a very hard job

I'm awfully glad I'm here to say

He made it possible for me to be here to say

Good for God

Instrumental

Good for God

Good Lord!

Good God Almighty!

He got no mama

He got no papa

Good for God

The other day another friend of mine said

He said the sun is going yellow

Pretty soon we'll all be dead

I said my friend what do you mean?

You must be living in a museum

And things are never what they seem

Good for God

Good for God

Now if truth is truth

It's easy to know the truth

Now that's the truth

Help me God

Good for God

Good for God

Good for God

He's got a hard job

And before they put me in the hole

I pray to God I'll find a big loophole

Good for God

The man drove the little girls wild

You know it's all right

He's on our side

It looking pretty good for us, ya know?
