1) Honey, Honey

 

 

Honey honey, how you thrill me, ah-hah, honey honey

Honey honey, nearly kill me, ah-hah, honey honey

I’d heard about you before

I wanted to know some more

And now I know what they mean, you’re a love machine

Oh, you make me dizzy

 

Honey honey, let me feel it, ah-hah, honey honey

Honey honey, don’t conceal it, ah-hah, honey honey

The way that you kiss goodnight

(The way that you kiss me goodnight)

The way that you hold me tight

(The way that you’re holding me tight)

I feel like I wanna sing when you do your thing

 

I don’t wanna hurt you, baby, I don’t wanna see you cry

So stay on the ground, girl, you better not get too high

But I’m gonna stick to you, boy, you’ll never get rid of me

There’s no other place in this world where I rather would be

 

Honey honey, touch me, baby, ah-hah, honey honey

Honey honey, hold me, baby, ah-hah, honey honey

You look like a movie star

(You look like a movie star)

But I know just who you are

(I know just who you are)

And, honey, to say the least, you’re a dog-gone beast

 

So stay on the ground, girl, you better not get too high

There’s no other place in this world where I rather would be

 

Honey honey, how you thrill me, ah-hah, honey honey

Honey honey, nearly kill me, ah-hah, honey honey

I heard about you before

I wanted to know some more

And now I know what they mean, you’re a love machine

2) Money, Money, Money – (Meryl Streep, Julie Walters & Christine Baranski)

 

 

I work all night, I work all day, to pay the bills I have to pay

Ain’t it sad

And still there never seems to be a single penny left for me

That’s too bad

In my dreams I have a plan

If I got me a wealthy man

I wouldn’t have to work at all, I’d fool around and have a ball…

 

Money, money, money

Must be funny

In the rich man’s world

Money, money, money

Always sunny

In the rich man’s world

Aha-ahaaa

All the things I could do

If I had a little money

It’s a rich man’s world

 

A man like that is hard to find but I can’t get him off my mind

Ain’t it sad

And if he happens to be free I bet he wouldn’t fancy me

That’s too bad

So I must leave, I’ll have to go

To Las Vegas or Monaco

And win a fortune in a game, my life will never be the same…

 

Money, money, money

Must be funny

3) Mamma Mia

 

 

I’ve been cheated by you since I don’t know when

So I made up my mind, it must come to an end

Look at me now, will I ever learn?

I don’t know how but I suddenly lose control

There’s a fire within my soul

Just one look and I can hear a bell ring

One more look and I forget everything, w-o-o-o-oh

 

Mamma mia, here I go again

My my, how can I resist you?

Mamma mia, does it show again?

My my, just how much I’ve missed you

Yes, I’ve been brokenhearted

Blue since the day we parted

Why, why did I ever let you go?

Mamma mia, now I really know,

My my, I could never let you go.

 

I’ve been angry and sad about things that you do

I can’t count all the times that I’ve told you we’re through

And when you go, when you slam the door

I think you know that you won’t be away too long

You know that I’m not that strong.

Just one look and I can hear a bell ring

One more look and I forget everything, w-o-o-o-oh

 

Mamma mia, here I go again

My my, how can I resist you?

Mamma mia, does it show again?

My my, just how much I’ve missed you

Yes, I’ve been brokenhearted

Blue since the day we parted

Why, why did I ever let you go?

Mamma mia, even if I say

Bye bye, leave me now or never

mamma mia, it’s a game we play

Bye bye doesn’t mean forever

 

Mamma mia, here I go again

My my, how can I resist you?

Mamma mia, does it show again?

My my, just how much I’ve missed you

Yes, I’ve been brokenhearted

Blue since the day we parted

Why, why did I ever let you go

Mamma mia, now I really know

My my, I could never let you go

4) Dancing Queen

 

 

You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life

See that girl, watch that scene, digging the Dancing Queen

 

Friday night and the lights are low

Looking out for the place to go

Where they play the right music, getting in the swing

You come in to look for a king

Anybody could be that guy

Night is young and the music’s high

With a bit of rock music, everything is fine

You’re in the mood for a dance

And when you get the chance…

 

You are the Dancing Queen, young and sweet, only seventeen

Dancing Queen, feel the beat from the tambourine

You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life

See that girl, watch that scene, digging the Dancing Queen

 

You’re a teaser, you turn ’em on

Leave them burning and then you’re gone

Looking out for another, anyone will do

You’re in the mood for a dance

And when you get the chance…

 

You are the Dancing Queen, young and sweet, only seventeen

Dancing Queen, feel the beat from the tambourine

You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life

See that girl, watch that scene, digging the Dancing Queen

5) Our Last Summer

 

 

The summer air was soft and warm

The feeling right, the Paris night

Did it’s best to please us

And strolling down the Elysee

We had a drink in each cafe

And you

You talked of politics, philosophy and I

Smiled like Mona Lisa

We had our chance

It was a fine and true romance

 

I can still recall our last summer

I still see it all

Walks along the Seine, laughing in the rain

Our last summer

Memories that remain

 

We made our way along the river

And we sat down in the grass

By the Eiffel tower

I was so happy we had met

It was the age of no regret

Oh yes

Those crazy years, that was the time

Of the flower-power

But underneath we had a fear of flying

Of getting old, a fear of slowly dying

We took the chance

Like we were dancing our last dance

 

I can still recall our last summer

I still see it all

In the tourist jam, round the Notre Dame

Our last summer

Walking hand in hand

 

Paris restaurants

Our last summer

Morning croissants

Living for the day, worries far away

Our last summer

We could laugh and play

 

And now you’re working in a bank

The family man, the football fan

And your name is Harry

How dull it seems

Yet you’re the hero of my dreams

 

I can still recall our last summer

I still see it all

Walks along the Seine, laughing in the rain

Our last summer

Memories that remain

I can still recall our last summer

I still see it all

In the tourist jam, round the Notre Dame

Our last summer

Walking hand in hand

Paris restaurants

Our last summer

Morning croissants

We were living for the day, worries far away…

6) Lay All Your Love on Me

 

 

I wasn’t jealous before we met

Now every woman I see is a potential threat

And I’m possessive, it isn’t nice

You’ve heard me saying that smoking was my only vice

But now it isn’t true

Now everything is new

And all I’ve learned has overturned

I beg of you…

Don’t go wasting your emotion

Lay all your love on me

 

It was like shooting a sitting duck

A little small talk, a smile and baby I was stuck

I still don’t know what you’ve done with me

A grown-up woman should never fall so easily

I feel a kind of fear

When I don’t have you near

Unsatisfied, I skip my pride

I beg you dear…

 

Don’t go wasting your emotion

Lay all your love on me

Don’t go sharing your devotion

Lay all your love on me

 

I’ve had a few little love affairs

They didn’t last very long and they’ve been pretty scarce

I used to think that was sensible

It makes the truth even more incomprehensible

‘Cause everything is new

And everything is you

And all I’ve learned has overturned

What can I do…

 

Don’t go wasting your emotion

Lay all your love on me

Don’t go sharing your devotion

Lay all your love on me

 

(repeat 2x and fade]

7) Super Trouper

 

Super Trouper beams are gonna blind me

But I won’t feel blue

Like I always do

‘Cause somewhere in the crowd there’s you

 

I was sick and tired of everything

When I called you last night from Glasgow

All I do is eat and sleep and sing

Wishing every show was the last show

(Wishing every show was the last show)

So imagine I was glad to hear you’re coming

(Glad to hear you’re coming)

Suddenly I feel all right

(And suddenly it’s gonna be)

And it’s gonna be so different

When I’m on the stage tonight

 

Tonight the

Super Trouper lights are gonna find me

Shining like the sun

(Sup-p-per Troup-p-per)

Smiling, having fun

(Sup-p-per Troup-p-per)

Feeling like a number one

Tonight the

Super Trouper beams are gonna blind me

But I won’t feel blue

(Sup-p-per Troup-p-per)

Like I always do

(Sup-p-per Troup-p-per)

‘Cause somewhere in the crowd there’s you

 

Facing twenty thousand of your friends

How can anyone be so lonely

Part of a success that never ends

Still I’m thinking about you only

(Still I’m thinking about you only)

There are moments when I think I’m going crazy

(Think I’m going crazy)

But it’s gonna be alright

(You’ll soon be changing everything)

Everything will be so different

When I’m on the stage tonight

 

Tonight the

Super Trouper lights are gonna find me

Shining like the sun

(Sup-p-per Troup-p-per)

Smiling, having fun

(Sup-p-per Troup-p-per)

Feeling like a number one

Tonight the

Super Trouper beams are gonna blind me

But I won’t feel blue

(Sup-p-per Troup-p-per)

Like I always do

(Sup-p-per Troup-p-per)

‘Cause somewhere in the crowd there’s you

 

So I’ll be there when you arrive

The sight of you will prove to me I’m still alive

And when you take me in your arms

And hold me tight

I know it’s gonna mean so much tonight

Super Trouper lights are gonna find me

Shining like the sun

But I won’t feel blue

8) Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!

 

 

Half past twelve

And I’m watching the late show in my flat all alone

How I hate to spend the evening on my own

Autumn winds

Blowing outside the window as I look around the room

And it makes me so depressed to see the gloom

 

There’s not a soul out there

No one to hear my prayer

 

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight

Won’t somebody help me chase the shadows away

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight

Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

 

Movie stars

Find the end of the rainbow, with a fortune to win

It’s so different from the world I’m living in

Tired of T.V.

I open the window and I gaze into the night

But there’s nothing there to see, no one in sight

 

There’s not a soul out there

No one to hear my prayer

 

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight

Won’t somebody help me chase the shadows away

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight

Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

 

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight…

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight…

 

There’s not a soul out there

No one to hear my prayer

 

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight

Won’t somebody help me chase the shadows away

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight

Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight

Won’t somebody help me chase the shadows away

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight

Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

Meaning of Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!

1) Night life
