Lyrics

Mamma Mia
03:35
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

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 broken-hearted
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

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 broken-hearted
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 broken-hearted
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
Hey, Hey Helen
03:18
So at last you're free
it's the way you wanted it to be
and the price you pay
to be called a woman of today
is it worth the pain
to see the children cry?
Does it hurt
when they ask for Daddy?

Hey, hey Helen
now you live on your own
Hey, hey Helen
can you make it alone?
(yes you can)

So you're free at last
and beginning to forget the past
does it make you sad
when you think about the life you had
but you're right
you had to take a second chance
so you fly to find your freedom

Hey, hey Helen
now you live on your own
hey, hey Helen
can you make it alone?
Hey, hey Helen
what's the matter with you
hey, hey Helen
don't you know what to do?
(yes you do)
Tropical Loveland
03:07
Come to my loveland
wander along
beautiful gardens full of
flowers and songs
come to the sunshine
beaches and sand
listen to bluebirds
won't you come to my land
the grass is mellow and the
sky is blue
my paradise is waiting
here for you

Ooh, it's a tropical loveland
ooh, I wanna share it with you
life can be funny
happy and sunny
ooh, in my tropical loveland

Come to my loveland
wander with me
lie with me darling
in the shade of a tree
over the rainbow
under the moon
that's where my land is
won't you come to me soon
just take my hand
I'll show you everything
the secrets that my
paradise can bring

Ooh, it's a tropical loveland
ooh, I wanna share it with you
life can be funny
happy and sunny
ooh, in my tropical loveland
S.O.S.
03:24
Where are those happy days
they seem so hard to find?
I try to reach for you
but you have closed your mind
whatever happened to our love?
I wish I understood
it used to be so nice
it used to be so good

So when you're near me
darling can't you hear me
SOS
the love you gave me
nothing else can save me
SOS
when you're gone
how can I even try to go on
when you're gone
though I try how can I carry on

You seem so far away
though you are standing near
you made me feel alive
but something died I fear
I really tried to make it out
I wish I understood
what happened to our love?
It used to be so good

So when you're near me
darling can't you hear me
SOS
the love you gave me
nothing else can save me
SOS
when you're gone
how can I even try to go on
when you're gone
though I try how can I carry on
Man in the Middle
03:04
Did you see that man in the limousine?
With the pretty blonde;
he is fifty and the girl's only seventeen
but she doesn't care and she never will
if he's ninety-five she don't give a damn
just as long as he pays the bill

Did you see that man with a fat cigar?
He just left his lunch
with a belly full of lobster and caviar
he can choose the wine from a vintage year
he will drink champagne in his limousine
when the rest of us drink a beer

'Cause he's the man in the middle
never second fiddle
just like a spider in a cobweb
hard as a hammer
not the kind of boss
you double-cross
'cause he's the man in the middle
knows the way to diddle
he's never bothered by his conscience
deals with the devil 'cause he wants to be
man in the middle, the middle, the middle
in the middle

But you see that man made a big mistake
even though he's got all his servants
and a mansion beside a lake
and the money too, all that he can spend
he can buy the most, nearly anything
but he can't buy an honest friend

'Cause he's the man in the middle
never second fiddle
just like a spider in a cobweb
hard as a hammer
not the kind of boss
you double-cross
'cause he's the man in the middle
knows the way to diddle
he's never bothered by his conscience
deals with the devil 'cause he wants to be
man in the middle, the middle, the middle
in the middle
Bang-a-Boomerang
03:05
Makin' somebody happy
is a question of give and take
you can learn how to show it
so come on give yourself a break
every smile and every little touch
don't you know that they mean so much
sweet, sweet kisses so tender
always will return to sender

Like a bang-a-boome-boomerang
dummi-dum-dummi, dummi-dum-dum
a bang-a-boome-boomerang
love is a tune you hummy-hum-hum
by givin' away
I think you'll learn
you'll get love in return
so bang-a-boome-boomerang is love
a boome-boomerang is love

Love is always around
and you can look for it anywhere
when you feel that you've found it
my advice is to take good care
never use it as a selfish tool
never ever be such a fool
every feelin' you're showin'
is a boomerang you're throwin'

Yes a bang-a-boome-boomerang
dummi-dum-dummi, dummi-dum-dum
a bang-a-boome-boomerang
love is a tune you hummy-hum-hum
by giving away
I think you'll learn
you'll get love in return
so bang-a-boome-boomerang is love
a boome-boomerang is love

And if you're warm and tender
I'll kiss you, return to sender
please surrender

Bang-a-boome-boomerang
dummi-dum-dummi, dummi-dum-dum
a bang-a-boome-boomerang is love
a boome-boomerang is love
I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do

I love you, can't deny it

Oh, no hard feelings between you and me
if we can't make it, but just wait and see
so come on now let's try it
I love you, can't deny it
'cos it's true
I do, I do, I do, I do, I do

So love me or leave me
make your choice but believe me

I can't conceal it

I've Been Waiting for You
03:42
I, I've been in love before
I thought I would no more
manage to hit the ceiling
still strange as it seems to be
you brought it back to me
that old feeling

I, I don't know what you do
you make me think that you
possibly could release me
I think you'll be able to
make all my dreams come true
and you ease me

You thrill me, you delight me
you please me, you excite me
you're something I'd been pleading for
I love you, I adore you
I've laid my life before you
I'll have you want me more and more
and finally it seems
my lonely days are through
I've been waiting for you

I, I'm gonna make you mine
you're gonna feel so fine
you'll never want to leave me
I feel you belong to me
someday you will agree
please believe me

You thrill me, you delight me
you please me, you excite me
you're something I'd been pleading for
I love you, I adore you
I've laid my life before you
I'll have you want me more and more
and finally it seems
my lonely days are through
I've been waiting for you
oh, I've been waiting for you
So Long
03:08
You think you're gonna make me softer
with your fancy car, ahaha
but I can tell you all your tricks
ain't gonna get you far, ahaha
they say that money's got a magic touch
but not to me it doesn't mean that much
you won't have me tonight
alright, alright, alright, alright

So long, see you honey
can't buy me with your money
Tracy, Daisy, they may be crazy
but I'll never be your girl
so long, see you honey
can't buy me with your money
you know it's not worth tryin'
so long, so long, so long

You didn't have to send me flowers
like you did today, ahaha
I wouldn't keep a thing from you
I gave them all away, ahaha
the girls might fall for everything you've got
but I'm not one of them, you know I'm not
you won't have me tonight
alright, alright, alright, alright

So long, see you honey
can't buy me with your money
Tracy, Daisy, they may be crazy
but I'll never be your girl
so long, see you honey
can't buy me with your money
you know it's not worth tryin'
so long, so long, so long
