Songtekst

Billy ran away
from his home to find away to live in peace
His Mama didn't give a damn about him
His Papa's on the run from the Police
When Billy hit the city - the city hit Billy
No one needs you when your down and out
Then one kind guy with the painted eyes
Picked him up and bailed him out

Under one roof sharing one room
Nobody cared about them
Under one roof Sharing one room
Daring the world to part them

Billy found it hard to find a job to make some pay
AII day looking round getting me down I was being turned away
And Johnny was the only one who didn't talk down
To Billy from up above
And for the first time in his life Billy found out
What it felt like to be loved.

Under one roof sharing one love
Nobody cared about them
Under one roof sharing one love
Daring the world to part them.

Somehow Billy's Papa found out all about the style of Billy's
life
And it didn't take long before he came round and he had a knife
He cut up Johnny stole all his money
He called him all the names that he could find
Said he'd wait for Billy at the factory tomorrow
And show him what they do to Billy's kind.

Under one roof sharing on love
Now the whole world knew about them
Under one roof sharing one love
Daring the world to part them.

Johnny said 'Billy we can run away from the world no more
I'm gonna fetch my daddy, I'm gonna show the world who I'm living
for
And if I lose my job, if I lose my life you'll know one thing is
true
He can take away anything from me
But he won't take me from you.

And at five thirty dead his daddy waited at the factory for him
to come
And how it did degrade him he cut him and he slayed him
And spat on him in front of ev'ryone
As Billy lay dying his Papa started crying
Because the parent through him he became
And all because the person who has the first to give him love
Had been a man.
BABY I KNOW
Rubettes

You called me to tell me goodbye
I told you that I was some other guy
You said that you'd phone when he got home
You told me to tell him that you'd called

Now you don't have to tell me goodbye
You don't have to hear me cry
You don't have to tell me to go
'Co sbaby, baby I know

The phone rang again for some time
I knew it was you on the line
I hurt you before I knew it for sure
Forgive me for being unkind

Now you don't have to tell me goodbye . . .

When you called much later that night
I said he'd out 'til daylight
But if there's something I can tell him
Forgive me for asking but is something not right

And than you broke down and cried
Told me you loved him but your love had been denied
He didn't want you no more I told her don't you be so sure
He'll never want you to go
'Cos baby, baby I know
Baby I know, I know
Baby I know, I know
CHERIE AMOUR
Rubettes

Cherie amour our love's pour les jours
AII through the day time
You're always on my mind.

Cherie amour our love's pour tous les jours
Not for one night time
But for our life time.

Seasons come and seasons go
But our love will go on and on
And I'll be beside you
When the cold winds blow
And I'll shelter you from the storm
Keep you warm

Cherie amour our love's pour tous les jours
