Track Name: You're My Thrill
You're my thrill
You do something to me
You send chills right through me
When I look at you
'Cause you're my thrill

You're my thrill
How my pulse increases
I just go to pieces
When I look at you
'Cause you're my thrill

Hmmm-nothing seems to matter
Hmmm-here's my heart on a silver platter

Where's my will?
Why this strange desire?
That keeps rising higher
When I look at you
I can't keep still
'Cause you're my thrill
Track Name: They Say It's Wonderful
Rumors fly and you can't tell where they start
'Specially when it concerns a person's heart
I've heard tales that could set my heart a-glow
Wish I knew if the things I hear are so

Rumors fly and they often leave a doubt
But you've come to the right place to find out
Everything that you've heard is really so
I've been there once or twice and I, I should know

They say that falling in love is wonderful
It's wonderful, so they say
And with a moon up above, it's wonderful
It's wonderful, so they tell me

I can't recall who said it, I know, I never read it
I only know they tell me that love is grand and
This thing that's known as romance
Is wonderful, wonderful, in every way, so they say

You leave your house one morning and without any warning
You're stopping people, shouting that love is grand and
To hold a man in your arms is wonderful
Wonderful, in every way, so they say.
Track Name: I Want to Be Loved
I wanna be loved with inspiration
I wanna be loved starting tonight
Instead of merely holding conversation
Hold me tight

I wanna be loved I crave affection
Those kisses of yours I'd gladly share
I want your eyes to shine in my direction
Make me care

I want the kind of romance
That should be strong and equally as tender
I only ask for the chance
To know the meaning of the word, surrender

I wanna be thrilled by only you dear
I wanna be thrilled by your caress
I wanna find each dream of mine come true dear
I wanna be loved

I want to be loved with inspiration
I want to be loved starting tonight
Instead of merely holding conversation
Hold me tight

I want to be kissed until I tingle
I want to be kissed starting tonight
Embrace me till our heart beats intermingle
Wrong or right

I feel like acting my age
I'm past the stage of merely turtle dovin'
I'm in no mood to resist
And I insist the world owes me a lovin'

I wanna be thrilled to desperation
I wanna be thrilled starting tonight
With every kind of wonderful sensation
I wanna be loved, I want to be loved, I want to be loved
Track Name: I Want to Be Happy
I want to be happy
But I won't be happy
Untill I make you happy too

Life's really worth living
When we are mirth giving
I'd like to give some mirth to you

When skies are gray and you say you are blue
I'll send the sun smiling through

I want to be happy
But I won't be happy
Untill I make you happy too

I'm a very ordinary Dame
Trying to work out life's happy game
Doing unto others as I'd like to have them doing unto me

When I find a very lonely soul
To be kind becomes my only goal
I feel so much better when I tell them my philosophy

When skies are gray and you say you are blue
I'll send the sun smiling through

I want to be happy
But I won't be happy
Until I make you happy too
Track Name: I'm All Smiles
I'm all smiles, darling
You'd be too
If you knew, darling
All of the smiles were for you

I'm all chills, darling
Through and through
But my cold hands, darling
Warm to the touch of you

Rain hasn't fallen for days now
But rainbows are filling the skies
My heart must have painted those rainbows
Shining before my eyes

Can't you tell that I'm in love, darling?
Deep and true, with guess who, darling?
Someone I would die for
I'd beg, steal and lie for
I'd eat humble pie for
Someone I'd go to the sun, moon and sky for
Someone to live for
To laugh with and cry for
And that someone is you
Track Name: Sugar
Sweet sugar drips from his sweet lips, the sugar is mine
You bet your life a sweet man like this would be hard to find

He picks me up, he makes me feel fine, he makes me think twice bout’ paradise
Like sugar and spice and everything nice, he’s sugar to me

Sweet sounds of joy come into my ear, when my sugar is near
He sounds so sweet, my heart skips a beat when my sugars near

He picks me up, he makes me feel fine, he makes me think twice bout’ paradise
Like sugar and spice and everything nice, he's sugar to me
Track Name: Shall We Dance?
Shall we dance?
On a bright cloud of music shall we fly?
Shall we dance?
Shall we then say "Goodnight and mean "Goodbye"?
Or perchance,
When the last little star has left the sky,
Will we still be together
With our arms around each other
And will you be my new romance?
On the clear understanding
That this kind of thing can happen,
Shall we dance?
Shall we dance?
Shall we Dance?
Track Name: This Will Make You Laugh
This will make you laugh
I staked my dreams on you
This will make you laugh
They never did come true

I took a chance on the one romance
And vowed it couldn't miss
I should have known to never judge
A heart by a kiss

This will make you laugh
I once believed in you
But for all my love
You didn't see it through

Of all the fools, I break the rules
I love you still you see
This will make you laugh
But it's not funny to me.
Track Name: All I Want
I am on a lonely road and I am traveling
Looking for something, what can it be
Oh I hate you some, I hate you some, I love you some
Oh I love you when I forget about me

I want to be strong I want to laugh along
I want to belong to the living
Alive, alive, I want to get up and jive
I want to wreck my stockings in some juke box dive
Do you want - do you want - do you want to dance with me baby?
Do you want to take a chance
On maybe finding some sweet romance with me?
Well, come on

All I really really want our love to do
Is to bring out the best in me and in you too
All I really really want our love to do
Is to bring out the best in me and in you

I want to talk to you, I want to shampoo you
I want to renew you again and again
Applause, applause - Life is our cause
When I think of your kisses my mind see-saws
Do you see - do you see - do you see how you hurt me baby
So I hurt you too
Then we both get so blue.

I am on a lonely road and I am traveling
Looking for the key to set me free
Oh the jealousy, the greed is the unraveling
It's the unraveling
And it undoes all the joy that could be

I want to have fun, I want to shine like the sun
I want to be the one that you want to see
I want to knit you a sweater
Write you a love letter
Make you feel better
Make you feel free
Track Name: Something to Live For
I want something to live for
I want someone to make my life an adventurous dream
Oh, what wouldn't I give for
Someone to take my life and make it seem
Gay as they say it ought to be
Oh, why can't I have love like that brought to me?

My eye is watching the noon crowd
Is searching the promenade seeking a clue
To the one who will someday be my
Something to live for.
Track Name: I Was Doing All Right
I was doing all right
Nothing but rainbows in my sky
I was doing all right till you came by

I had no cause to complain
My life was as sweet as apple pie
I never minded the rain
Until you came by.

And now whenever you're away
I can't sleep nights and suffer all the day
I just sit and wonder
If love isn't one big blunder

But when you hold me tight
I'm tingling all through and I feel somehow
That I was doing all right
And I'm doing much better now.
Track Name: The Dimming of the Day
This old house is falling down around my ears
I'm drowning in a river of my tears
When all my will is gone you hold me sway
I need you at the dimming of the day

You pull me like the moon pulls on the tide
You know just where I keep my better side

What days have come to keep us far apart
A broken promise or a broken heart
Now all the bonnie birds have wheeled away
I need you at the dimming of the day

Come the night you're only what I want
Come the night you could be my confidant

I see you on the street in company
Why don't you come and ease your mind with me
I'm living for the night we steal away
I need you at the dimming of the day
Yes, I need you at the dimming of the day
