Songtekst

SONGTEKST HOW CAN THIS BE LOVE

How can this be love,
if it makes us cry
How can this be love,
If it makes us cry

I thought love was every thing
I believed in all the good things
It would bring

But lately we have hurt each other bad
And I'm afraid to lose the loving
that we had

I tried to make it good
I did the best I could
woaohoohoho

Chorus:
How can this be love,
if it makes us cry
How can this be love,
if it makes us cry

I ask my mama, what to do,
Is it just a passing thing,
we going through

She said " baby, don't be blue,
If you get through this, you know
your love is true".

We tried to make it good,
We did the best I could,
woaoohoohoho

Chorus:
How can this be love,
[. From: http://www.elyrics.net .]
if it makes us cry
How can this be love,
if it makes us cry

Break:

I tried to make it good
I did the best I could
We tried and tried,
We cried and cried
We did the best we could
How can this be love,
if it makes us cry,

who - ooh

How can this be love,
If it makes us cry,
woa - oh woa - ooh

How can this be love,
if it makes us cry

How can this be love,
if it makes us cry
tell- me- mama-
woa - oh

How can this be love,
if it makes us cry
woa- hoo- - hoo- oaw

How can this be love,
if it makes us cry

woa- - hoo- - hoo- oaw

How can this be love,
if it makes us cry
woa -

How can this be love,
if it makes us cry


SONGTEKST THANK YOU FOR BEING A DRIEND

Thank you for being a friend
Traveled down the road and back again
your heart is true you're a pal and a confidant

I'm not ashamed to say
I hope it always will stay this way
My hat is off, won't you stand up and take a bow

And if you threw a party
Invited everyone you knew
You would see, the biggest gift would be from me
and the card attached would say,
Thank you for being a friend

Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend

If it's a car you lack
I'd surely buy you a cadillac
Whatever you need, anytime of the day or night

I'm not ashamed to say
I hope it always will stay this way
My hat is off, won't you stand up and take a bow

And when we both get older
With walking canes and hair of gray
Have no fear, even though it's hard to hear
I will stand real close and say,
Thank you for being a friend

(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Let me tell you bout a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend

And when we die and float away
Into the night, the Milky Way
You'll hear me call, as we ascend
I'll see you there, then once again
Thank you for being a..

Ba ba ba ba ba ba

Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
Whoa, tell you about a friend
(Thank you right now, for being a friend)
Thank you for being a friend
(I wanna tell you right now, and tell you again)
Thank you for being a friend
(I wanna thank you, thank you, for being a friend)
Thank you for being a friend
