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

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.

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

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
5.
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

Sugar 05:01
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
7.
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?
8.
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.

All I Want 05:08
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
10.
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.
11.
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.
12.
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
