Songtekst

---Me And Mrs. Jones---

We've got a thing going on.
We both know that it's wrong,
but it's much too strong
to let it go now.

We meet everyday, at the same café
6:30 I know - I know she'll be there.
Holding hands - making all kinds of plans
while the jukebox play our favorite song.

Me and Mrs. Mrs. Jones Mrs. Jones Mrs. Jones Mrs. Jones
we've got a thing going on.
We both know that it's wrong,
but it's much too strong
to let it go now.

We've gotta be extra careful
That we don't build our hopes up too high.
'Cause she's got her own obligations
and so and so do I...

Me and Mrs. Mrs. Jones Mrs. Jones Mrs. Jones Mrs. Jones
we've got a thing going on.
We both know that it's wrong,
but it's much too strong
to let it go now.

Well it's time for us to be leaving
It hurts so much - it hurts so much inside
Now she'll go her way
And I'll go mine.
Tomorrow we'll meet the same place the same time.

Me and Mrs. Mrs. Jones Mrs. Jones Mrs. Jones Mrs. Jones
we've got a thing going on.
We've gotta be extra careful.
We can't afford to build our hopes up too high.

I wanna meet,
and talk with you,
at the same place,
the same café,
the same time
And we're gonna hold hands like we used to
We're gonna talk it over, talk it over
We know, they know, and you know and I know that it was wrong
But I'll make it strong...
We've gotta let 'em know now
We've got a thing going on...
...thing going on...

"Your Song"

It's a little bit funny, Lord, this feeling inside
I'm not one of those who can easily hide
I don't have much money but, boy, if I did
I'd buy a big mansion where we both could live

If, if I was a sculpture, Lord, honey, but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a travelin' show
I know it's not much, I know it's not much, but it's the best I can do
You gave a gift, Lord, and I'm gon' sing it for you

And you can tell everybody that this is your song
It may be quite, quite simple but that's how it's done
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind what I wrote down in words,
words
How wonderful life is when you're in the world, world, world

If, if, if I was on a rooftop I'd kick off my shoes
I'll write a few verses, and then I get the blues
But the sun's been quite, quite kind while I wrote this song
It's for people like you and people like me
I wanna, I wanna keep turnin' on

So excuse me forgetting, but these things I do, Lord
You see, you see I've forgotten if they're green or blue
Anyway the things is, anyway the thing is, what I really mean
Your are the sweetest eyes, you've got the sweetest eyes
The clearest eyes I've ever seen, I hope you know that

I hope you, I hope you wrote back and tell everybody that this is your
song
It may be quite, quite simple but now that's how it's done
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind, but I wrote down in words,
Lord, words
I'm doin' it for how wonderful life is when you're in the world, world,
world

If, if, if I was on a rooftop I'd kick off my shoes
I'll write a few verses, and then I'll get the blues
But the sun's been quite, quite kind while I wrote this song
It's for people like you, people like me
I wanna, wanna keep turnin' on, so excuse me, so excuse me

So excuse me forgetting, Lord, these things I do
You see, you see I've forgotten if they're green or blue, baby
And anyway the things is, anyway the thing is, what I really mean
Your are the sweetest eyes, the sweetest eyes
The sweetest eyes I've ever seen

I hoping you go back, go back and tell everybody that Billy Paul's got a
song
I'm, I'm gonna sit upon a, a rooftop and kick off my shoes
I'm gonna write it, write it, write it
I might come out with the Gospel, the Blues, the Jazz, the Rock and Roll

I'm gonna, got to, got to write me a simple song for everybody because
this is my song
It may be quite, quite simple but that's how it's done
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind what I wrote down in words,
words
You come on back, you try to try again, try again

Tell everybody that Billy Paul got a song
It may be quite, quite simple but that's how it's done, baby
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind what I wrote down in words
Hold it, hold it, hold it, hold it

Get back, get, got, oh, ho
