"In Xanadu did Kubla Khan a stately Tacoma-Dome decree; Where Puyallup the sacred river ran, through tydeflats
measureless to man! Down to a polluted sea..."

Track Name: On a Night Like This
On a night like this (on a night like this)
When the champagne goes straight to my head
On a night like this (on a night like this)
Some things are better left unsaid.

I’ll drink it over
I’ll drink it over
I’ll drink it over
With you

On a night like (on a night like this)
When I’m feeling four sheets to the wind
On a night like this (on a night like this)
My two loose lips are safety-pinned

I’ll drink it over
I’ll drink it over
I’ll drink it over…
With you

And if you think I’ve had enough
I’ve had enough of what you think
And if you knew me
You’d see through me
In a wink…or two

On a night like (on a night like this)
When I feel the spirits taking me
On a night like (on a night like this)
Don’t raise a glass reluctantly

I’ll drink it over
I’ll drink it over
I’ll drink it over…
With you
With you
With you…
Track Name: Sweetshop
Sweet Shop, where the Sheik of Araby shops
On lipstick-colored laptops
Beneath the cherry moon

Sweet shop, where the dandelion dewdrops
Explode above the tube tops
And burst just like balloons…

You needn’t bother
With the Son or the Father
‘Cause everything’s okay
And it really doesn’t matter anyway

One day your tooth decay is gonna keep you up all night
‘Til the morning comes and finds you craving more
Knocking on the door of the…

Sweetshop, where the creature in the cornstalks
Heaves a heavy cyclops
And croaks a crooked tune

Sweetshop, where the rattle of the rain drops
Are cotton-candy tick-tocks
‘Til the very crack of doom

You shouldn’t wonder at the star that you’re under
Or what the prophets say
‘Cause it really doesn’t matter anyway
Track Name: Be Not Coy
Be Not Coy

Gather ye rosebuds while ye may
Your time has almost past
Gather ye rosebuds while ye may

Nothing gold can last

I never knew
The right thing to do
Or what it was all about

So gather ye rosebuds while ye may
Your time is running out

I never knew
The right thing to do
Or what it was all about

So gather ye rosebuds while ye may
Your time is running out
Your time is running out
Track Name: Don't Lose Your Temper
She's broken every single vow
She's brought you to your knees
You're headed for a mighty row
Inevitably

Your brain is boiln’ for goodness sake
You're headed for a fall
You think that you've taken all that you can take
And that's when you recall...

Don't lose your temper
Don't t make it now or never
Don't lose your temper
You'll find it's getting better...
Getting better

You've dotted every single “I”
Crossed every single “T”
You’ve gotten all your points across
From here to eternity

Don't lose your temper
Don't make it now or never
Don't lose your temper
You'll find it's getting better...
Getting better


Now you’re tugging on my money belt
That’s plain to see
Now I know how the monkey felt
In Memphis Tennessee
