Tantalize 
gora

From the east-side street, kick a tin can beat
Run through the jungle, a lion, a mongrel like you.
Such an easy mark for a hungry shark
Lost in the haze of the big city maze and it's through

Tantalize you, mesmerize you
Trick you with a smile
Capture with the style
A touch of magic sure to make you sigh

Can you still be a sail with this ball and chain
Run through the jungle, a lecher, a scoundrel, it's you
Keep yourself wide-eyed or they'll bleed you dry
Runnin' thru shadows of streets broad and narrow with you

Tantalize you, mesmerize you
Start to lose control
The city takes its toll
Beaten once, twice, shy, beware the law

Do you see (do you see)
At nights (at nights)
Do you see (do you see)
At nights (at nights)


If Wishes Were Horses 
gora

Come with me you can wish upon a star
You can do all the things that you've longed to
And you won't have to wonder who you are
You can be anybody you want to
In a land full of promises and kings
All your best laid dreams are for catchin'
You can have the world to tie up on a string
Just close your eyes and imagine

If wishes were horses
Beggars would ride
All dreams and desires would ride along side
Worries and troubles would fall off behind
If wishes were horses, beggars would ride

To a land far or near come along
There's an all new-round everyday glow
Like the young girl sang in the song
"Somewhere over the rainbow"


Until I Find You 
gora

I'm feelin' tired, my thoughts are lost without you
But I won't quit, I'll go down with my ship
Until I find you

Good thoughts are like wine, I think I'll bottle and share them
Please take the time, to open your eyes and shine
Until I find you

They can say what they will
But I really believe
Yes I really believe
I'll catch you if I can
I'll catch you if I can
I'll catch you if I can

They can say what they will
But I really believe
Yes I really believe


Pushin' & Showin' 
gora

I could love her if she were a Rolls Royce
But she handles like a model - T
So get her in high gear, she can't stay here with me

At show time she'll be in the front row
And she'll try to put the make on me
Her friends will all laugh
While their instamatics flash
Will you see me all meanwhile
And she'll push and she'll shove and I'll smile

If you cast a glance in her direction
She's sure to wrap herself around your knees
She's always pushin' and shovin' at me

She can't control herself, it seems she's fallen off a shelf
And I can only say, "Why me?"
And she'll push and she'll shove desperately

I could love her if she were a Rolls Royce
But she handles like a model - T
So get her in high gear, she can't stay here with me

If you cast a glance in her direction
She's sure to wrap herself around your knees
She's always pushin' and shovin' at me

Pushin' and shovin'
Pushin' and shovin'
Pushin' and shovin' me


No. 5243605 Smith 
gora

Stone cold cell
Raised from hell
Holdin' me
For first degree
One more morn
For calm, for dawn
You shall see
They'll come for me

I confessed
I've been blessed
All I need is one last request

I'll only get up in the morning
Tearin' down the songs
Hearing the radio
Blarin', darin', dancin' vigorly down  the hall
We'll get in the do, I did it
Shoo-bee-doo's and all
Give us the grass around to tumble down
That gobbles our way, rock'n'roll
I wanna get up in the morning
Tearin' down the walls
I've got to face my music
Fore I face my lord

To think this is over
A crazy kind of show
Can't any of you tell me
Is there a better way to go?
Oh no!

5:15

Now's the time
I'll be fine
Here's my music one more time

I'll be here in the early morning
Tearin' down the song
Knockin' the radio
Blarin', darin', dancin' vigorly down  the hall
I'll get in the do, "I did it"
Shoo-bee-doo's and all
Watchin' the grass around
A rollin' round to good old passion rock'n'roll
I'll be here in the early morning
Tearin' down these walls

The music played and I must say I really had a ball
And now I guess I gotta go and meet those odd people down the hall

I don't wanna go this way
Though I know I've gotta pay
Would it change things anyway
If I said Id like to stay?
What da ya say?


Song For A Star 
gora

This is a song for a star
If you really are a star
Here is a song for you all
Take a lesson before you fall

We're caught in the middle of everything
It's like trying to figure out which bell to ring
You think you'd made the start of it
But this is just the start of it now

Steppin' in time with your pace
Tho' we've never yet met face to face
This is a song for yourself
In the hopes that we don't do it wrong

We're caught in the middle of everything
Lookin' and turnin' out songs to sing
It could've been the start of it
But this is just the start of it now

You can be a star if you can climb
Just make sure you are in the nick of time

This is a song for a star (song for a star)
This is a song for a star (song for a star)
This is a song for a star
If you really are a star
This to whoever you are
If you really are a star


Shut Up 
gora

May it never be said she's knockin' them dead
But is there a fame, it's such a cryin' shame what they're sayin'
It's more than a game that they're playin'
At the start as we all should know
That she's some kind of sleaze, that's a social disease
Shut up, shut up

Don't tell me that my best friend's a menace
She might wind up in a book written by Guinness
It's all right with me, if she wants to be
As loony as the day she was born
Shut up, shut up

Call her name in the air and she'll soon be there
If you want her to be
Round me a bend and I'm needin' a friend she comes to me

The story book lies, there's stars in her eyes
She's one of a kind and I sure am glad that I met her
I couldn't have found one much better
But there's something we all should know
She's a kind of a gnu that belongs in a zoo
Shut up, shut up

Don't tell me that my best friends like Alice
Who might wind up in a looking-glass palace
It's all right with me, if she wants to be
As naughty as the day she was born
Shut up, shut up

Call her name in the air and she'll soon be there
If you want her to be
Round me a bend and I'm needin' a friend she comes to me

Don't tell me that my best friend's a menace
She might wind up in a book written by Guinness
It's all right with me, if she longs to be
As nutty as the day she was born
Shut up, shut up

Call her name in the air and she'll soon be there
If you want her to be
Round me a bend and I'm needin' a friend she comes to me 

Shut up, shut up


All Of Sudden 
gora


Wastin' Time 
gora

Lazy day you got it all to tell
Rest your weary wings come and sit a spell
And talk to me for a little while
Wastin' time, wastin' time

Yesterday as a child at play
I didn't think so hard, took it all in my stride
Wastin' time, wastin' time

People rushin' round, going nowhere fast
Talk about, oh first or last
Got one there, ain't got no class
Wastin' time, wastin' time

Lazy day you got it all to tell
Rest your weary wings come and sit a spell
And talk to me for a little while
Wastin' time, wastin' time
Wastin' time, wastin' time
Wastin' time, wastin' time


Say Hello, Say Goodbye 
gora

The costumes, the scenery that make up the props
The audience that lifts you when you're down
The headaches, the heartaches, the packing, the flops
The sheriff who escorts you out of town

There's no business like show business
There's no business I know
Everything about it is appealing
Everything the traffic will allow
Knowing that you get that happy feeling
When you're taking that extra bow

There's no business like show business
There's no business I know
Everything about it is appealing
Everything the traffic will allow
Knowing that you get that happy feeling
When you're taking that extra bow

Say hello say goodbye
Good to see you're glad to rock and roll you
Say hello say goodbye

You're the ones that really stole the show yeah
Split your spats as you're gone thru the band
It's good to move, to groove to you tonight
Tip your hat, to the boys in the band
Sorry but it's time to end this show yeah
