Track Name: NOT TOO HOT
NOT TOO HOT

when i'm in a great deal of trouble
like a monkey in a monkey puzzle
you keep me calm, you keep me cool
not too hot, not too hot

you smoke a cigarette and i blow smoke in and out
i diddled it out of you
i'm into tobacco, not into tabasco
not too hot, not too hot

you wanted to play
hide and seek
but you didn't even find me in a week
not too hot, not too hot

great minds think alike
my foot's asleep
keep away from the mic
it's my time to speak
Track Name: I CAN'T WAIT
I CAN'T WAIT

i left through the window while you were still asleep
i got to the garden, i had to find a gate
my dress got caught, i left a little piece
please don't be mad at me, but i just couldn't wait

i can't wait
i just can't wait
let bygones be bygones
let's move on, move on...

i looked at the bread and could tell it was good
plus mustard and cheese, it'll make me feel great
i said to myself, let's by some, i sure should
i queued but left the line, i just couldn't wait

we've been planning to meet for weeks and weeks
the day has come at last and i don't wanna be late
i'm pacing up and down the steep streets
i'm two hours early, i just couldn't wait
Track Name: FOUR CLOVERS
FOUR CLOVERS

do you love me, love, in the daytime
do you love me, love, in the night
do you love me, love, i think of home and i cry
time is an enemy of mine

i found four clovers
twelve leaves
i saw two lovers
out in the fields

the fields are covered in
dandelion snow
a hawk is hovering
over a crow

the crows will gather
ready for the kill
a little bit farther
over the hill
Track Name: WAY AWAY
WAY AWAY

we're on our way around our way
we're on our way away

the ceiling was covered with polystyrene tiles
like dirty gray skies
i didn't know why
wide eyed

we had local food
so good
when we left the highway
yeah yeah yeah

like globetrotters on a treasure trove
tranquilly we drove
to the next stop:
the second hand shop

it's great fun
to make him run
whom we love, we tease
we wave and leave
Track Name: LITTLE LIAR
LITTLE LIAR

back to bed
but hard to get
you little liar

he dusted the bar
and here you are
you little liar

here's my heart
hear my heart
thump thump thump

stabbed in the back
i won't stab back
you little liar

why, oh why
i wonder why
you little liar

here's my heart
hear my heart
hurt hurt hurt
Track Name: HAPPY BY YOUR SIDE
HAPPY BY YOUR SIDE

i'm always happy by your side
i'm always happy by your side
i'm sure, i'm sure

we never quarrel
we travel and travel
we learn and learn
love and fun in return

how sweet, how sweet
you kiss me on kiss street
and then the hey hey starts
and i'm taken aback, taken aback

hold me, hold me

my heart beats like the first time
i feel my blood, it's running wild
can't stop the flow
from top to toe

i'm sure, i'm sure
Track Name: LES FRITES
LES FRITES

je mangeais des frites sur la place du jeu de balle
t'avais les yeux tristes et des chaussettes dans les sandales
j'allais m'en aller
quand tu m'as parlé

tu m'as fait la liste de tout ce que tu savais dire:
bonjour, comment allez-vous, enchanté de vous rencontrer,
le canard est dans la bibliothèque,
un café au lait s'il vous plaît, un croissant au chocolat,
j'aime aller à la plage, je voudrais un jus de pomme, madame,
je t'aime

je mangeais des frites sur la place du jeu de balle
tu parlais un peu vite mais tu te débrouillais pas mal
j'allais m'en aller
quand tu m'as parlé

moi j'aime pas la bière, je préfère les alcools forts
mais tu m'as offert une bière et je l'ai bue sans remords
t'étais comme un poète avec ton canard dans la bibliothèque
j'aimais bien ta tête, ta tête de cacahouète

je mangeais des frites sur la place du jeu de balle
des frites pas cuites collées au papier journal
j'allais m'en aller
quand tu m'as parlé

elles étaient cool toutes tes histoires, tu m'as bien fait marrer
tu connaissais un tour, un truc bien barré
allez, j'compte jusqu'à trois: un, deux, trois
oulala, mais là c'est n'importe quoi, j'crois
on est resté là à papoter, tu m'as embrassée,
on s'est jamais séparé
Track Name: FIRE
FIRE

love surrounds me
there's nothing i can do
it came and found me
and all of you too

hear the lyre
home we returned
you set me on fire
now let me burn

dance what you wanna say to me
your heart and your soul
dance, this is the place to be
losing control

dance, dance, dance
say it with your feet
dance, dance, dance
dance to the beat

hear the flames crackle
get up and cut the cackle
don't fear the fire
feel the fire

up on the table, up with you
up on the table, up with me too
up on the table, hey, hey
up on the table let me hear you say...

if your heart is bumping
and you're no match
let me tell you something:
just watch

when they have to close
come with me
we'll take off our clothes
and jump in the sea
Track Name: LET THE WIND DIE DOWN
LET THE WIND DIE DOWN

in your peppermint cotton shirt
in my red-coated cotton skirt

we'll go to town
let the wind die down

bring my green tambourine
and your rusty metal whistle machine

when the wind dies down
we'll hit the higher ground
we'll be nowhere to be found
when the wind dies down

did you hear the storm storm
all the parasols are torn

we missed the last bus
but the kiosk clerk drove us

look at the jukebox
we're on top of the pops

mercilessly supercilious

cynical, brilliant, and stern
for my dear innocence i yearn
Track Name: WASTING TIME
WASTING TIME

what are you doing
wasting time
don't you know you love him
don't you know he's the one

why don't you stop pretending
stop wasting your time
happiness is here
right under your eye

are you blind
or just wasting time

there's always something
going wrong
you keep on trying
he's been here all along

is this not love
is this not love
happiness is here
right under your eye

are you blind
or just wasting time

it's not too late
it's not too late
it's not too late
