Shocking Blue Lyrics

VENUS

A Goddess on a mountain top
Was burning like a silver flame
The summit of Beauty in love
And Venus was her name

REFRAIN:
She's got it yeah, Baby, she's got it.
Well, I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
At your desire

Her weapon were her crystal eyes
Making every man mad
Black as the dark night she was
Got what no-one else had
Wa!

REFRAIN
--------------------------------------------

I'M A WOMAN

My day love mind is still the same
Look here you can't change me
Even if you want to
Darlin' I know just my way

I'm a woman, yes I am
Makes souls grow out

Don't be afraid I'll show you how
To share me and my weakness
You please me very much dear if you say yes
Know how to love me just try to understand

I'm a woman, yes I am
Makes souls grow out
The only thing I care for
is followin' the line
Look here, you can't change me
The words yes is all mine

I'm a woman, yes I am
Makes souls grow out

SALLY WAS A GOOD OLD GIRL

Sally used to carry my books to school
Sally was a good old girl
Helped me with my homework said I was a fool
Sally was a good old girl

If you wanna just a kiss
Or a little bitty squeeze
She would always spin to do
Her best oh please

Yeah Bruce will make her love
And not make her tease
Sally was a good old girl

REFRAIN:
Yeah, Sally was a good old girl
Sally was a good old girl
No matter what the week was
She gave love
Sally was a good old girl

Well, Sally sought full
But she asked all she could
Sally was a good old girl
Hardest workin' dude in the neighbourhood
Sally was a good old girl

Well, she walked up and down
The streets all day
If they couldn't afford then she gave them away
Sally was a good old girl

REFRAIN

Sally was the favourite
At the ball for men
Sally was a good old girl
All of the ladies despises there
Sally was a good old girl

Well, she worked at the bathroom
Sally didn't care
She kept on working and doin' her share
She wanted to marry to millionaire
Sally was a good old girl

POOR BOY

Poor boy, poor boy are you long way from home
Poor boy are you down and out and all alone
Poor boy, poor boy did you spend your very last dime
Poor boy what you gonna do you ain't got much time

Ain't nobody for better or worse
Can't find nobody who cares
Can't you find a handy noose
You're so lonely and blue
Somebody there for better or worse
Somebody there who cares
You can find your heavy noose
And chateau for you
-------------------------------------------------

TOBACCO ROAD

I was born in a dump
Mama died and daddy got drunk
Left me here to die or grow
In a middle of Tobacco Road

Grew up in a rusty shack
All I had was hangin' on my back
Only you know how I loathe
This place called Tobacco Road

But it's home the only life
I've ever know
Only you know how I loathe
Tobacco Road
Gonna leave get a job
With the help and the graze from above
Save same money get rich I know
Bring it back to Tobacco Road
Bring dynamite and a crane
Blow it up start all over again
Build to a town be proud to show
Give the name Tobacco Road
------------------------------------------------

HOT SAND

Summer day over
And darkness come with mighty wings
The sea gull's head is tired
And when he's tired then he sings

Hot sand. I'm walkin' in the hot sand
Makin' love on the hot sand
Together with you, yeah, yeah, yeah
I'm waitin' for the hour
I'm waitin' for a place to stay
Some place where I can rest
And not think about the empty day

Hot sand. I'm walkin' in the hot sand
Makin' love on the hot sand
Together with you, yeah, yeah, yeah

If you wonder why baby
If you wonder what you hear
It's useless to describe
Even wonder of what's in your ear

Hot sand, it's so good
On the hot sand
I'm strollin' in the hot sand
Together with you... yeah, yeah, yeah
-------------------------------------------------

LONG AND LONESOME ROAD

On a Sunday night while driving my car
In the sky a fallin' star
Tellin' myself I don't go too far
And trust by the sound of the rain

REFRAIN:
Well I wonder, well I wonder where I am
'Cos there's a long and lonesome road
That will find our world of you & me babe
There's a long and lonesome road
That will find our world like it used to be babe

Somebody there to show me the way
Yes, I'm willin' to pay
And this dear old man can tell me any day
Know what happens to me

REFRAIN
------------------------------------------------

BOOL WEEVIL

Well the first time I saw Bool Weevil
He was a-sittin' on a square
Well the next time that I saw him
He had his whole family there
Just a lookin' for a home

Well the farmer took the Bool Weevil
And pulled him on the red hot sand
Well the Weevil said: "It is mighty hot"
But I take it like a man
Just a lookin' for a home

Well, the Weevil said to the farmer:
"Sell your old machine
When we fill your cup
You can buy gasolino"
Just a lookin' for a home

Well if somebody should ask you
Who it was who sang this song
Say you set a beating from Oklahoma city
Just a lookin' for a home
--------------------------------------------

BLOSSOM LADY

Once I had a boyfriend
He was so tall and strong
He knew what I needed
When I was all alone
Then he said to me
I'll care for you day and night
And never for sake you
Yes I'll stay by your side
Don't be afraid girl
You're the one the one I love

He said: "'Cos you're my blossom lady
You're my blossom lady."
But one year later
I was as lonely as I was before
I saw my boyfriend
At some more door girls door
And there was the third again
I saw them they did broke away
Then I remember what do you still say?

Don't be afraid girl, you're the one
The one I love don't be afraid girl
He said: "'Cos you're my blossom lady
You're my blossom lady."

And I'll bet you like it too

REFRAIN:
Did you hear about Mighty Joe

Have you been broken-hearted once or twice
If it's yes how did you feel at his first lies
If it's no you need this good advice

REFRAIN:
Never marry a Railroad man
He loves you every now and then
His heart is at his new train. No, no , no
Don't fall in love with a Railroad man

You're better off without him ah...

Have you ever been restless in your bed
And so lonely that your eyes became wet
Let me tell you then one thing mmm...

REFRAIN
-----------------------------------------------

SHOCKING YOU

REFRAIN:
We're shocking you untill you turn to blue
We're shocking you see what we gotta do
Look out it's like electricity
Don't think it's fantasy

The sound of guitar is sparklin' lightning
The sound of bass like hurricane
Join the crowd. I may be shocking you

REFRAIN

The way those currents let's you down
Like a dungeon it's the magic sound
Join the crowd I may be shocking you

The sound of guitar is sparklin' lightning
The sound of bass like a hurricane
Join the crowd. I may be shocking you

DEMON LOVER

It hurts me so to be
Under your spell
Ain't no heaven for me, but a hell
But after all, I can't let you go
'Cos I love you so, Demon Lover
Demon Lover, Demon Lover
I love you
I'm bewitched and I know it so well
What the reason is baby I can't tell
It's that animal good looks you've got
You show more than a lot
Demon Lover, Demon Lover, Demon Lover
I love you

You took me for lovin' kindness sake
You don't give love, you only take
But after all I can't let you go
'Cos I love you so Demon Lover

ALASKA COUNTRY

There's no better way of being alone
Down in my land, my beautiful land
A nature of God all covered with snow
A pleasure to be and good times to spend

REFRAIN:
Alaska Country - stay the way you are
Alaska Country - you never cheated me
Na-na-a-a
I wanna know that
Alaska Country

Seven days a week
And seven lonely nights
Plenty of time to find myself again
So that I'll know what I was
Created for
To have a good life where there's no pain

REFRAIN

LOVE BUZZ

Would you believe me when I tell you
You are the king of my dreams.
Please don't decieve me when I hurt You.
It just ain't the way it seems.

Can't you hear my love buzz?
Can't you hear my love buzz?
Can't you hear my love buzz?

I need you like a desert needs rain.
I would rather like to die.
Darling I hurt when I do not see you,
So spead your wings and fly.

Can't you hear my love buzz?
Can't you hear my love buzz?
Can't you hear my love buzz?
--------------------------------------

VELVET HEAVEN

When I'm down, I go into
the land of dreams built for two
It's a world of consolation
and there's no need of any conversation.

Oh, velvet heaven, high in the sky above
I think of you when I'm blue in love
blue in love

Come to me and I'll be your guide
The moon never fails tonight
We'll be only disturbed by
Some gently sounds out of the sky.
--------------------------------------

LOVE SWEET LOVE

Although you're not a millionaire
to live my life I need you there
Although you have no handsome face
in my heart there's just one place
that's love sweet love
that's love sweet love
that's love sweet love

Although you made some big mistakes
which gave me sorrow and heartaches
and when your to late at date
I don't care I'm always the one to wait

paw,paw,paw,paw.
Although you can't dance like Fred Astaire
and you ain't got a house in Bel Air
still you are my exclusive movie star
I will take you for what you are.
-------------------------------------------

I SAW YOUR FACE

I saw your face
and I knew I needed you
and your eyes so blue

I saw your face
I saw your face

I saw your face
and she turned
and my love was burned

I saw your face
I saw your face
I saw your face
and your hair

I want to be around your face
just show your face
I saw your face

SERENADE

All delights, all smiles
All sorrows, all passions
All rain, all tears
All mystery's, all fears.

They all bring you a serenade my love
They all bring you, a serenade yes they do.
They all bring you a serenade my love
They all bring you, a serenade yes they do.

All midnights, all stars
All emotions, all thoughts
All mountains, all rocks
All guitars, all lutes
All music, all flutes.
------------------------------------------

DON'T YOU SEE

Don't you see if you need a friend
you've just to call me
Don't you see if you need some sweet
I'll be your candy.
I am waiting patiently
until the day comes that you gonna need me
and when love comes, let it come beautiful
let it be worth waiting for you
and let it be wonderful.
---------------------------------------------

THE BIRD OF PARADISE

One fine day I had a long distance call
I called my guy he's waiting far away
he said hello and I got that feeling
the bird of paradise flew upon my nose
the bird of paradise flew upon my nose

His voice was low and I heard him say
come little baby come silly soul
you gotta know I need you so badly
and the bird of paradise flew upon my nose.
----------------------------------------------

MOONLIGHT NIGHT

Do you, do you remember
the smell of grass and the perfume of love
that thrill was in our hearts and for us
that was just enough.
In that moonlight night I got you spell bound
In that moonlight night I got you spell bound.

Do you, do you remember
that sweet sigh for love in my ear
the night was ours and the paradise
was coming near.
In that moonlight night I got you spell bound.

I walked, I talked, I smiled in a dream
I squeezed, I kissed, I made love in a dream
Oh, that was something I never will forget
Oh, that was something I never will forget
Oh, that was something I never will forget.
-------------------------------------------------

SLEEPLESS IN MIDNIGHT

I enjoyed your company
I enjoyed your smile
sometimes we were sitting under a tree
after we walked a mile.

But suddenly you left me
and now I'm so lonely
and sleepless at midnight
sleepless at midnight
sleepless at midnight.
We were dreaming together
about a home and a child or two
our love was like sunny weather
and I thought I could depend on you.
-------------------------------------------

I'LL FOLLOW THE SUN

I'll follow the sun
That's what I gonna do
Trying to forget all about you.
I'll follow the sun
till the end of time
No more pain and no more tears for me.

I'll follow the sun
Birds will show me how
'Cause suddenly it seems my eyes are dry.

I'll follow the sun
till I see the light
Apollo comes near when the time is right.
---------------------------------------------

GONNA SING MY SONG

Gonna sing my song for you,
It won't ever let you down;
Gonna bring my love to you
By singing my song around.
Love, it's spinning my head around.

What a sake of me and you
And something that we found?
Only [...] love will do,
I sing it all around.
Love, it's turning my head around.

I will sing, all morning tells me,
I will never, ever let you go.
I want you to know!
I will never, ever leave you,
Never say a word to bring you now.
That's what I feel with a sure!
Come on, I'm taking it!
Gonna sing my song for you,
It won't ever let you down;
Gonna bring my love to you
By singing my song around.
Love, it's spinning my head around.
---------------------------------------------

Inkpot

Put some love in your heart
Like you put the ink in the inkpot.
Learn it and you will enjoy it baby
To put the ink in the inkpot.
Shu-bi-do-ah
Shu-bi-do-ah

Shu-bi-do-ah
Shu-bi-do-ah.

You can play with every thing
But you cannot play with your heart
Fooling around make it mean
And then I'm feeling that we'll be apart.

Put some love in your heart...

Your mama taught you how to pray
But once you will be a grown-up girl
But what you also have to learn
That is how to love somebody in this world.

Put some love in your heart...
---------------------------------------------

HELLO DARKNESS

Between the grey and red shadows of twilight
The time stands still.
It seems like a hundred light-years
Since the day you went away.

Oh, oh, oh...
Hello...hello darkness

Step inside,
Make the hours run thru' the night.

Knowing that you're far from my heart

It's so hard to live on.
But on the day when you'll return
Know you'll make my fire burn
When the night is over you'll be mine.

Hello..hello darkness
Step inside
Make the hours run thru' the night.
---------------------------------------------

EVE AND THE APPLE

In the garden of Eden
The black snake talked to Eve
He said taste a big apple
It won't give you any grief
She said

REFRAIN:
No, It ain't mine
But a taste must be sweeter than wine
Well she took the apple
And we lost paradise
Well she took the apple
And we lost paradise

Every boy and girl
Ask their mom and dad
About a place here on earth
Where little Eve once said

REFRAIN

And the sun went down
In that world of light
And the sun went down
In that world of light
And the sun went down
In that world of light

In the garden of Eden
The black snake talked to Eve
He said taste a big apple
It won't give you any grief
She said

ROCK IN THE SEA

I wish I was a bird in the sky
I wish I was a bird in the sky
Like a bird in the sky
I'd be safe, high and dry
I wish I was a bird in the sky
I wish I was a bird in the sky

I wish I was a mole in the ground
I wish I was a mole in the ground
Like a mole in the ground
I'd throw this mountain down
I wish I was a mole in the ground
I wish I was a mole in the ground

I'm so glad
I don't want furs and rings
Only the beauty of nature
Matters to me, yeah

I wish I was a rock in the sea
I wish I was a rock in the sea
Like a rock in the sea
Nothing could budge me
I wish I was a rock in the sea
I wish I was a rock in the sea

I wish I was a rock in the sea
I wish I was a rock in the sea

I'LL WRITE YOUR NAME THROUGH THE FIRE

REFRAIN:
I'll write your name through the fire
I'll write your name through the fire
I'll write your name to bring me home again
I'll write your name through the fire

And I'm standing there at edge of town
Gonna get cold when the sun goes down
Saddle my horse and I'm packin' my clothes
Where I'm goin' just the good Lord knows

REFRAIN

When mornin' breaks yes I'll be gone
And where I go I don't know
Have a lonely mind and a lonely heart
Wounded by your love dart

REFRAIN (two times)

The desert chaps under my my feet
With dusty boots I ride in the heart
Pray to my Lord, while a wolf howls
Let me go back, back to my sweet

REFRAIN
One more time

REFRAIN

OUT OF SIGHT OUT OF MIND

Love comes very easy and slips easy away
If you gotta go for a long, long time
Your baby promised you'll be on his mind
Don't be surprised if it turns out wrong

REFRAIN:
Out of sight, out of mind
That's what happened a million times
Out of sight, out of mind

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

REFRAIN

Love has many faces and shows them all
When you have to kiss your baby goodbye
There is a presentiment you can't deny
Will he come back, yes or no

REFRAIN

That's what happened a million times

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

REFRAIN

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Since I got gone in the place where I've been

Roll engine roll

LOVE MACHINE

Grandma told the doctor's son
Boy, without love you can't go on
It makes the whole world turn around
The love machine
The love machine makes a woman feel bound
Love started to weep and dream
Day overcame the first grief
And now just in time to learn
The love machine
The love machine makes the world torn around
Grandma told the doctor's son
Boy, without love you can't go on
It makes the whole world turn around
The love machine
The love machine makes a woman feel bound
Love started to weep and dream
Day overcame the first grief
And now just in time to learn
The love machine
The love machine makes the world torn around
Makes the world torn around
The love machine makes the world torn around
Makes the world torn around

THE BUTTERFLY AND I

The butterfly and I a message from the dark
The butterfly and I a message from the dark
Love was burst through the air
Love was burst through the air
Just look around and help yourself
Now
The butterfly and I have heard a very strange sound
The butterfly and I have heard a very strange sound
Hey get up before it's too late
Think it out before it's too late
Have it now you're bound to look short
Don't wait

---------------------------------------------

CALIFORNIA HERE I COME

Got a long long way to go
Over her dusty roads
Take my old brown suitcase
And leave at the break of day
I'm not afraid of the distance
Some time on my side
Hear me singing my song
California here I come
When the sun's going down silence is the only sound
Oh restless are the nights when nobody's around
I'm not afraid of the distance
Some time on my side
Hear me singing my song
California here I come
Day after day I'm going over her dusty roads
How long will this go on
Until I'm there where I belong
But now troubles are over
I wipe off the dust on my boots
Hear me singing my song
California now to come
California now to come

---------------------------------------------

SEND ME A POSTCARD

Before lonely nights will break my heart
Send me a postcard darlin'
How can I make you understand
I wanna be your woman
Here, here I'm waitin' for a little sign
Waitin' till the end of time
Send me a postcard darlin'
Send me a postcard now
Send me a postcard darlin'
Send me a postcard now
I can't taste the lonely night
I need someone I can turn to
Look out for the day I get a little sun
I want to know you're all mine
Now, now please don't let me down
Ain't no lover like me in town
Send me a postcard darlin'
Send me a postcard now
Send me a postcard darlin'
Send me a postcard now
Before lonely nights will break my heart
Send me a postcard darlin'
How can I make you understand

Waitin' till the end of time
Send me a postcard darlin'
Send me a postcard now
Send me a postcard darlin'
Send me a postcard now
