Songtekst

I wasn't jealous before we met
Now every woman I see is a potential threat
And I'm possessive, it isn't nice
You've heard me saying that smoking was my only vice

But now it isn't true
Now everything is new
And all I've learned has overturned
I beg of you

Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me

It was like shooting a sitting duck
A little small talk, a smile, and baby I was stuck
I still don't know what you've done with me
A grown-up woman should never fall so easily

I feel a kind of fear
When I don't have you near
Unsatisfied, I skip my pride
I beg you dear

Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me
Don't go sharing your devotion
Lay all your love on me

I've had a few little love affairs
They didn't last very long and they've been pretty scarce
I used to think I was sensible
It makes the truth even more incomprehensible

'Cause everything is new
And everything is you
And all I've learned has overturned
What can I do?

Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me

Don't go sharing your devotion
Lay all your love on me

Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me

Don't go sharing your devotion
Lay all your love on me

S.O.S.

Written by Andersson / Ulvaeus / AndersonWhere are those happy days
They seem so hard to find?
I tried to reach for you
But you had 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?
S.O.S.
The love you gave me
Nothing else can save me
S.O.S.
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?
S.O.S.
The love you gave me
Nothing else can save me
S.O.S.
When you're gone
How can I even try to go on?
When you're gone
Though I try how can I carry on?

So when you're near me
Darling can't you hear me?
S.O.S.
The love you gave me
Nothing else can save me
S.O.S.
When you're gone
How can I even try to go on?
When you're gone
Though I try how can I carry on?
When you're gone
How can I even try to go on?
When you're gone
Though I try how can I carry on?


Take A Chance On Me

Written by Andersson / UlvaeusIf you change your mind, I'm the first in line
Honey I'm still free, take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, and I'll be around
If you've got no place to go, when you're feeling down

If you're all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I'm still free, take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best and it ain't no lie
If you put me to the test, if you let me try

Take a chance on me
Take a chance on me

We can go dancing, we can go walking
As long as we're together
Listen to some music, maybe just talking
Get to know you better

'Cause you know I've got so much that I wanna do
When I dream I'm alone with you, it's magic!
You wanted to leave me there, afraid of a love affair
But I think you know, that I can't let go

If you change your mind, I'm the first in line
Honey I'm still free, take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, and I'll be around
If you've got no place to go, when you're feeling down

If you're all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I'm still free, take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best and it ain't no lie
If you put me to the test, if you let me try

Take a chance on me
Take a chance on me

Oh you can take your time baby, I'm in no hurry
I know I'm gonna get ya
You don't wanna hurt me, baby don't worry
I ain't gonna let ya

Let me tell you now: my love is strong enough
To last when things are rough, it's magic!
You say that I waste my time, but I can't get you off my mind
No I can't let go, 'cause I love you so

Coming in
If you like what you're seeing take a chance with me
You won't be grabbed if you're feeling horny
Well you're perfect so you got to know this precious property
I know the lads, so cold musically
Nobody sits, understand me clearly
However hard you try you could never hold me
We all fix nice it up and just move freely
Special K - what he says so listen carefully
Me not sit all alone and just wait for the phone
Not call me up cause me never, never home
Ya, machine on cause we get a wrong one
Matthew Mark, mister Paul, mister Luke and John
If we like what we see we chance a situation
Nothing don't pay nothing maybe see what follow on
What a Jill may do if the right man come
Hey ride the boat now we just have a little fun
Go now!

Baba-ba-ba-ba, baba-baba-ba-baba
Honey I'm still free, take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best and it ain't no lie
If you put me to the test, if you let me try

If you're all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I'm still free, take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best and it ain't no lie
If you put me to the test, if you let me try


Voulez-Vous

Written by Andersson / Ulvaeus

People everywhere
A sense of expectation hanging in the air
Giving out a spark
'Cross the room your eyes are glowing in the dark

And here we go again
We know the start
We know the end
Masters of the scene

We've done it all before
And now we're back
To get some more
You know what I mean

Voulez-vous?
Take it now or leave it
Now is all we get
Nothing promised, no regrets
Voulez-vous?
Ain't no big decision
You know what to do
La question c'est voulez-vous?

Voulez-vous?

I know what you think
The girl means business, so I'll offer her a drink
Feeling mighty proud
See you leave your table, pushing through the crowd

I'm really glad you came
You know the rules
You know the game
Master of the scene

We've done it all before
And now we're back
To get some more
You know what I mean

Voulez-vous?
Take it now or leave it
Now is all we get
Nothing promised, no regrets
Voulez-vous?
Ain't no big decision
You know what to do
La question c'est voulez-vous?

I'm really glad you came
You know the rules
You know the game
Master of the scene

We've done it all before
And now we're back
To get some more
You know what I mean

Voulez-vous?
Take it now or leave it
Now is all we get
Nothing promised, no regrets
Voulez-vous?
Ain't no big decision
You know what to do
La question c'est voulez-vous?

Voulez-vous?
