 lyrics

 mama said

Mama said it don't cost nothin' for a smile

You might just make someone happy for a while

And if you can put some good into this world

I'll be proud of you my darlin' baby girl

 

Mama said you don't judge a book just  by its cover

You feel your way and don't feel pressured by another

Take love slow and if it's truly meant to be

You'll learn the secret of that smile between your Daddy and me

 

But don't waste your time arguing common sense

Know your mind and don't you dare sit on that fence

Tell the truth, keep the faith that's what Mama said to me

Keep it real and you'll see that the best things are still free

 

Mama said don't cry about me when I'm gone

Just do your best to live your life well and be strong

Try to help people worse off in this world

And remember Mama loves you baby girl

Your Mama loves her little darlin' baby girl

 

drive

Hell I don't know how we even got into this fight

But standing here talking in circles sure ain't gonna make it right

And I'm tired of wasting breath trying to make you see

You just don't understand so just take my hand and come along with me

 

Baby let's drive

Yeah let's get away

We can ride all night and then sleep all day

So let's head for the coast and just make the most

Of the wind in our hair let me take you there

Jump inside put the car in cruise

And let's take a chance babe 'cause we've got nothing to lose tonight

Baby let's drive

 

Put the pedal to the metal and we'll run away into the night

Let the sound of the wheels on the road make this love reignite

Put your trust in us and darlin' I can guarantee

We'll take the exit sign leave the past behind till there's just you and me

 

Baby let's drive

Yeah let's get away

We can ride all night and then sleep all day

So let's head for the coast and just make the most

Of the wind in our hair let me take you there

Jump inside put the car in cruise

And let's take a chance babe 'cause we've got nothing to lose tonight

Baby let's drive

 

We've got the radio up and the top right down

And there's a million stars in the sky

We've got a real good thing and it's worth saving

So baby we've gotta give it a try

 

Baby let's drive

Yeah let's get away

We can ride all night and then sleep all day

So let's head for the coast and just make the most

Of the wind in our hair let me take you there

Jump inside put the car in cruise

And let's take a chance babe 'cause we've got nothing to lose tonight

Baby let's drive

 

listen

You on the front porch me here inside with oceans in between

I'm so afraid that each time we fight we're coming apart at the seams

And I've been trying to tell you something ain't right

But it's like walking on shifting sand

And you don't even notice when I cry at night

And you just don't understand

 

Darlin' listen I'm here before this love of ours disappears

Baby listen with your heart 'cause I can't stand us being apart

Darlin' listen

 

Baby I know I'm a hard one to love when I'm working as much as I am

But I swear on my life to the heavens above in my heart I'm still your man

And I've been wanting to hold you but something ain't right

I just haven't found the courage I need

And it kills me to know that you cry at night

How can I make you believe

 

Darlin' listen I'm here before this love of ours disappears

Baby listen with your heart 'cause I can't stand us being apart

Darlin' listen

 

We've both made the same mistakes

Now it's time to make this work or break

 

Darlin' listen I'm here before this love of ours disappears

Baby listen with your heart 'cause I can't stand us being apart

Darlin' listen

Ooh - ooh darlin' listen

trees are green

In the summer of '24 a little girl was born

They called her Muriel Theresa when she came

And as she grew she found her voice and dreamed of future fame

But the children teased her endlessly about her middle name

 

They called her Trees Are Green dance round again

You've got a funny face with a funny name catch us if you can

Let's play hide and seek and you be quiet so we won't be seen

Oh gee what fun we had with you today Trees Are Green

 

Those who heard you sing thought you'd be the next big thing

You won a contest on the radio they say

But war sure changes everything and life gets in the way

So you settled down with Tommy and you had six kids without delay

 

They all sang Trees Are Green sing me a song

Rock a bye your little baby girl your Daddy won't be long

Swing me round and around I'm a Princess you're a queen

Mummy can we play that game again today Trees Are Green

 

You were thirty nine in sixty four when I came to be

You were Muriel Theresa but just Nana Moo to me

 

Trees Are Green sing me a song

Somewhere Over The Rainbow and Nana can I sing along

You were just like Judy up there on the silver screen

But you were brighter than a movie star to me Trees Are Green

You still shine brighter than a movie star to me Trees Are Green

 

who knows

I'd never been the kind of girl who believed in love

You'd never catch me wishing on no stars above

But you do something to me that I can't explain

Now I only know I'm thinking about you night and day

 

Who knows where this thing is going

Who knows if it's meant to me

Who knows how far this ride will take us

Baby just hold on and we'll see

 

I'd never been a woman who would recognise

A diamond in the rough standing before my eyes

But baby you're the reason why I feel this free

And now I only know I really want you here with me

 

Who knows where this thing is going

Who knows if it's meant to be

Who knows how far this ride will take us

Baby just hold on and we'll see

 

All my friends say that I'm crazy

But if I'm crazy then it's true

'Cause honey this feels so good that I think I should

Just keep on loving you

 

I'd never been a lady who could find a way

To promise just one man forever and a day

But maybe something's changing yeah I think it's time

Let's throw caution to the wind and let the fates decide

 

Who knows where this thing is going

Who knows if it's meant to be

Who knows how far this ride will take us

Baby just hold on and we'll see

 

Who knows where this thing is going

Who knows if it's meant to be

Who knows how far this ride will take us

Baby just hold on and we'll see

Baby just hold on and we'll see

 

shine on

When you just can't see a road away from this

And there's no signpost around to show you bliss

No hope no love no light

No future only night

 

When there's darkness all around you shine on

Pick yourself up off the ground shine on

You are strong and you are brave

You belong and you're amazing

Turn on your beautiful light shine on

 

When this game of life gets so, so hard to play

And you're not sure you can make it through the day

They knock you down you cry

They laugh you wonder why

 

When there's darkness all around you shine on

Pick yourself up off the ground shine on

You are strong and you are brave

You belong and you're amazing

Turn on your beautiful light shine on

 

'Cause haters will hate - schemers will scheme

Fighters will fight and dreamers will dream

But baby you know that's just what it is

So you live and let live and never take more than you give

'Cause at the end of the day you know love will find a way

 

When there's darkness all around you shine on

Pick yourself up off the ground shine on

You are strong and you are brave

You belong and you're amazing

Turn on your beautiful light shine on
