You can bring Pearl, she`s a damn fine girl, But don't bring Lulu! You can bring Rose with the turned-up nose, But don't bring Lulu! Lulu always wants to do what the folks donwt want her to. When she struts her stuff around, London bridge is falling down! You can bring cake or a porterhouse steak, but don`t bring Lulu! Lulu gets blue and goes cuckoo like the clock upon the shelf. She`s the kind of smarty breaks up every party, Hullabaloo loo, don't bring Lulu, she'll come by herself! You can bring Flo, her dad`s got dough but don't bring Lulu! You can bring Lil, she`s an awful pill, but don't bring Lulu! Lulu has the reddest hair, auburn here and henna there. How can you boys keep your heads? Bulls go wild when they see red. You can bring peas and crackers and cheese, but don`t bring Lulu! When she gets sore and slams the door the plates fly off the shelf. She can make a fella wild on sarsaparilla. Hullabaloo loo, don`t bring Lulu, she'll come by herself!

I just saw the nattiest guy Looking so sharp he caught my eye All dressed up in a suit and tie And a brand new bowler hat Well how ‘bout that? (Bowler hat!) He went walking down the street Shiny shoes on his nifty feet But the thing that made his look complete Was his brand new bowler hat Just look at that (Bowler hat!) I like his flair I like his style I do declare The cut of his cloth made me smile So quick as a flash I turned around My day’s new purpose had been found For I would run that guy to ground By following his hat His bowler hat (Bowler hat!) Bum bum bum bum bum bum bum Bum bum bum bum bum bum bum That was a verse of scat Yes they call it that. All together now! Bum bum bum bum bum bum bum Bum bum bum bum bum bum bum We all like a bit of scat Nothing wrong with that I want that man He will be mine In his bright shoes I see my future shine Straight into his arms I’ll fall He and I will have a ball Wearing nothing else at all But his brand new bowler hat Just look at that (bowler hat!) I fancy that (bowler hat!) Well how ‘bout that? (bowler hat!) Nothing wrong with that (Bowler hat!)

Sweet dreams are made of this Who am I to disagree? I travel the world And the seven seas, Everybody's looking for something. Some of them want to use you Some of them want to get used by you Some of them want to abuse you Some of them want to be abused. Sweet dreams are made of this Who am I to disagree? I travel the world And the seven seas Everybody's looking for something Sweet dreams are made of this Who am I to disagree? I travel the world And the seven seas, Everybody's looking for something. Some of them want to use you Some of them want to get used by you Some of them want to abuse you Some of them want to be abused. Sometimes I feel I've got to run away I've got to get away From the pain you drive into the heart of me. The love we share seems to go nowhere And I've lost my light 'cause I toss and turn - I can't sleep at night. Once I ran to you now I run from you This tainted love you've given - I gave you all a girl could give you. Take my tears and that's not nearly all - Tainted love - tainted love. Don't touch me please - I cannot stand the way you tease. I love you though you hurt me so Now I'm gonna pack my things and go. Kiss me baby, tainted love Touch me baby, tainted love Tainted love - tainted love Sweet dreams are made of this...

I know the world is round So why should I be square And live inside a box That never goes anywhere? I want to be in a place where the people Prefer life upside down And always bounce back up on their feet Whenever they fall on the ground Where there are really angels in the sky And one of them will teach me how to fly How to fly Bum bum bum, bum-bum-bum bum bum bum, bum-bum bum Run away and join the circus Fun of every shape and size Come inside and see the wonders You won’t believe your eyes But I can’t run, not me, not even to join the circus Whenever I run I get a stitch right here in my side I can’t catch, I can’t throw I can’t cartwheel, I know I’ll fall over if I balance on my hands I get dizzy and sick If you spin me too quick And I can’t bend my body the wrong way round If I swallow fire I might burn my tongue If I fly through the air I might fall on my Bum bum bum bum-bum-bum bum So what's to be done? Why don’t I take my ukulele to the circus? Why don’t I show the circus folk what I can play? And if you like the song, perhaps you’ll sing along And let me stay Let me stay What do you say? Run away and join the circus Fun of every shape and size Come inside and see the wonders You won’t believe your eyes, believe your eyes Believe your eyes, believe your eyes You won’t believe your eyes

There’s a bad showgirl loose on the town A bad showgirl running around She’s gonna steal your heart away Then steal your drink and make you pay If she gives you the time of day Bad showgirl bad Bad From a distance she’s a stunner but you better keep the five feet rule (bad showgirl, bad bad showgirl) Or you may spot a little bit of tarnish on this jewel (bad, bad, bad, bad) She bought her hair on ebay and it cost her seven ninety nine (bad showgirl, bad bad showgirl) And the splashes on her gown are not the dressing room rider wine The trail of glitter in her wake Will cover up the odd mistake And almost everything is fake Bad showgirl bad Bad Bad Bad Bad girl.

There lived a certain man in Russia long ago He was big and strong, in his eyes a flaming glow Most people looked at him with terror and with fear But to Moscow chicks he was such a lovely dear He could preach the bible like a preacher Full of ecstasy and fire But he also was the kind of teacher Women would desire Ra ra Rasputin Lover of the Russian queen There was a cat that really was gone Ra ra Rasputin Russia's greatest love machine It was a shame how he carried on He ruled the Russian land and never mind the czar But the cassock he danced really wunderbar In all affairs of state he was the man to please But he was real great when he had a girl to squeeze For the queen he was no wheeler dealer Though she'd heard the things he'd done She believed he was a holy healer Who would heal her son Ra ra Rasputin Lover of the Russian queen There was a cat that really was gone Ra ra Rasputin Russia's greatest love machine It was a shame how he carried on But when his drinking and lusting and his hunger For power became known to more and more people The demands to do something about this outrageous Man became louder and louder This man's just got to go, declared his enemies But the ladies begged, don't you try to do it, please No doubt this Rasputin had lots of hidden charms Though he was a brute they just fell into his arms Then one night some men of higher standing Set a trap, they're not to blame Come to visit us they kept demanding And he really came Ra ra Rasputin Lover of the Russian queen They put some poison into his wine Ra ra Rasputin Russia's greatest love machine He drank it all and said, I feel fine Ra ra Rasputin Lover of the Russian queen They didn't quit, they wanted his head Ra ra Rasputin Russia's greatest love machine And so they shot him 'til he was dead Oh, those Russians
