Your Auntie Grizelda
by Jack Keller & Diane Hilderbrand
She knows her mind, all right, your Auntie Grizelda,
She says she knows my kind, she might, maybe so,
Oh, yeah, she's raised you right, your Auntie Grizelda,
You only know the things she wants you to know,
I know she's having a fit, she doesn't like me a bit,
No bird of grace ever lit on Auntie Grizelda.
You can't begrudge her style, your Auntie Grizelda,
She couldn't budge a smile and do it for free,
So righteous making fudge, your Auntie Grizelda,
So proper judging others over her tea,
You look just like her, you do, I know by looking at you,
That you've been listening to your Auntie Grizelda.
SOLO
Oh, no, don't look at me like Auntie Grizelda,
It takes much more to be someone of your own,
You've got to make it free from Auntie Grizelda,
Or just like her, you'll have to make it alone,
I know she's having a fit, she doesn't like me a bit,
No bird of grace ever lit on Auntie Grizelda.
Auntie Grizelda, Auntie Grizelda,
Auntie Grizelda, Auntie Grizelda,
Grizelda, Grizelda-da, da-da-da-da, da-Grizelda-da.

Don't Listen To Linda
by Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart
Don't listen to Linda,
She said all those things before,
She's just a pretender,
And, though you couldn't love her more,
She'll lead you on, but then one day,
She'll say you have to part,
Don't listen to Linda,
She'll only break your heart.
Don't listen to Linda,
If you want some good advice,
Just try to remember,
She did it once, she'll do it twice,
There's more to her little games,
Than your eyes can see,
Don't listen to Linda,
Or you'll end up like me.
You'll never understand her,
All the presents you could hand her,
Would never be enough,
Oh no, so, don't underestimate her,
'Cause sooner or later,
The going's gonna start to get rough.
Don't listen to Linda,
Don't believe the things you hear,
You're her top contender,
For the loser-of-the-year,
I've said everything I can
To try and make you see,
Don't listen to Linda,
Or you'll end up like me.
SOLO
Don't listen to Linda,
She said all those things before,
She's just a pretender,
And, though you couldn't love her more,
She'll lead you on, but then one day,
She'll say you have to part,
Don't listen to Linda,
She'll only break your heart.

Look Out (Here Comes Tomorrow)
by Neil Diamond
Look out, here comes tomorrow,
That's when I'll have to choose,
How I wish I could borrow
Someone else's shoes.
Mary, oh, what a sweet girl,
Lips like strawberry pie,
Sandra, long hair and beat girl,
Can't make up my mind.
I see all kinds of sorrow,
Wish I only loved one,
Look out, here comes tomorrow,
Oh how I wish tomorrow would never come.
Told them both that I loved them,
Said it, and it was true,
But I can't have both of them,
Don't know what to do.
I see all kinds of sorrow,
Wish I only loved one,
Look out, here comes tomorrow,
Oh how I wish tomorrow would never come.
SOLO
Mary, I love you...
Sandra, I love you...
Well, I see all kinds of sorrow,
Wish I only loved one,
Look out, here comes tomorrow,
Oh how I wish tomorrow would never come.
I love you, darling, I love you.

Look Out (Here Comes Tomorrow)
by Neil Diamond
Look out, here comes tomorrow,
That's when I'll have to choose,
How I wish I could borrow
Someone else's shoes.
Mary, oh, what a sweet girl,
Lips like strawberry pie,
Sandra, long hair and beat girl,
Can't make up my mind.
I see all kinds of sorrow,
Wish I only loved one,
Look out, here comes tomorrow,
Oh how I wish tomorrow would never come.
Told them both that I loved them,
Said it, and it was true,
But I can't have both of them,
Don't know what to do.
I see all kinds of sorrow,
Wish I only loved one,
Look out, here comes tomorrow,
Oh how I wish tomorrow would never come.
SOLO
"Ladies and gentlemen,
You are listening to the instrumental.
Thank you, we hope you enjoyed it,
And now back to the song."
Well, I see all kinds of sorrow,
Wish I only loved one,
Look out, here comes tomorrow,
Oh how I wish tomorrow would never come.
"Ladies and gentlemen,
This part of our record is here,
Because, if it weren't,
The record would be seventeen seconds too short,
And we would have to do an interview at the end."
Well, I see all kinds of sorrow,
Wish I only loved one,
Look out, here comes tomorrow,
Oh how I wish tomorrow would never come, oh.
"Hi, this is me again,
And this part is what we call the fade,
Where the record gets softer and softer,
And the disk-jockey usually comes in and starts talking over it."

Hold On Girl
by Jack Keller, Ben Raleigh & Billy Carr
I know about the guy who treated you so bad,
He took your love and then just walked away,
I know that you have got a reason to be sad,
But, help is on its way.
(Hold on girl)
Be a little bit stronger,
(Hold on girl)
Wait a little bit longer,
(Hold on girl)
Help is on its way.
I know you feel as though your world is at an end,
But, you don't have to live with yesterday,
I promise you the sun is gonna shine again,
And help is on its way.
(Hold on girl)
Now that we are together,
(Hold on girl)
Things are gonna be better,
(Hold on girl)
Help is on its way.
SOLO
I promise you the sun is gonna shine again,
And help is on its way.
(Hold on girl)
Be a little bit stronger,
(Hold on girl)
Wait a little bit longer,
(Hold on girl)
Help is on its way.

I Don't Think You Know Me
by Gerry Goffin & Carole King
If you think I want the life you choose to live,
I don't think I want the love you got to give,
If you think my goals could be so trivial and small,
Then I don't think you know me at all.
Born between the covers of your fashion books,
You think you can make it, girl, on just your looks,
But, you could never bring me up, between us stands a wall,
No, I don't think you know me at all.
SOLO
Believing in the promise painted in your smile,
I've chased what I was running from, girl, all the while,
I've known you a hundred times in memories I recall,
But, I don't think you know me at all,
No, I don't think you know me at all.

I'll Spend My Life With You
by Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart
People come and people go,
Moving fast and moving slow,
I'm in a crowd and yet I'm all alone.
The road is long, the road is rough,
I do believe I've had enough,
I'm gonna turn around and head for home.
And I hope you're there,
And you still care,
And, if you do,
I'll spend my life with you.
I've had all the time I need
To rearrange my mind and lead
The life I thought I wanted yesterday.
I played a game that couldn't last,
And now some memories from my past
Have turned my thoughts around a different way.
And, girl, I find,
You're still on my mind,
And, if you want me to,
I'll spend my life with you.
SOLO
And, girl, I find,
You're still on my mind,
And, if you want me to,
I'll spend my life with you.

I'm A Believer
by Neil Diamond
I thought love was only true in fairy tales,
Meant for someone else, but not for me,
Ah, love was out to get me,
That's the way it seemed,
Disappointment haunted all my dreams.
Then I saw her face,
Now I'm a believer,
Not a trace of doubt in my mind,
I'm in love,
I'm a believer,
I couldn't leave her if I tried.
I thought love was, more or less, a givin' thing,
Seems the more I gave, the less I got,
What's the use in trying,
Now, all you get is pain.
When I needed sunshine, I got rain.
Ah, then I saw her face,
Now I'm a believer,
Not a trace of doubt in my mind,
I'm in love,
I'm a believer,
I couldn't leave her if I tried.

SOLO
Ah, love was out to get me,
Now that's the way it seemed,
Disappointment haunted all my dreams.
Ah, then I saw her face,
Now I'm a believer,
Not a trace of doubt in my mind,
I'm in love,
Oh, I'm a believer,
I couldn't leave her if I tried.
Yes, I saw her face,
Now I'm a believer,
Not a trace of doubt in my mind,
Said, I'm a believer,
yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah,
Said, I'm a believer, yeah,

When Love Comes Knockin'
(At Your Door)
by Neil Sedaka & Carole Bayer
When love comes knocking at your door,
Just open up and let him in.
It's gonna be a magic carpet ride,
So, little girl, now, don't you run and hide.
I know that you've been hurt before,
But, don't you be afraid no more,
Throw off the chains that bind,
And leave the past behind,
When love comes knocking at your door.
(I know...)
When love comes knocking at your door
(...that you're afraid of loving me)
Just open up and let him in,
(But, girl, don't fight it and you'll see)
Oh, it's gonna be a magic carpet ride,
(That loving me will make you high)
So, little girl, now, don't you run and hide.
('Cause, baby, I....)
You'll see a rainbow every day,
(I know that you've been hurt before)
The sun will shine in every way,
(But, don't you be afraid no more)
Throw off the chains that bind,
And leave the past behind,
No need to worry anymore,
When love comes knocking at your door.
At your door,
At your door,
At your door.

Laugh
by Hank Medress, Phil Margo, Mitchell Margo & Jay Siegel
Every face that I see
Is all wrapped up in frowns,
And, unfortunately,
It kind of gets me down.
Laugh, 'cause the music is funny,
Yeah, the bass sounds off-beat, ain't that neat,
Laugh, when you lose all your money,
Or you can't find your shoes to cover your feet.
It's not so hard to see
Exactly what I'm after,
Sometimes a tear should fall,
But, I require giggles and chuckles. (Ho-ho-ho)
Laugh, when you're keeping a secret,
And it seems to be known by the rest of the world,
Laugh, when you go to a party,
And you can't tell the boys from the girls.
Every face that I see
Is all wrapped up in frowns,
And, unfortunately,
It kind of gets me down.
Yay-yay-yay, laugh, at the things that are wrong,
If you thinks it's this song, then laugh,
Then laugh,
Then laugh.

Mary, Mary
by Michael Nesmith
Mary, Mary, where are you going to?
Mary, Mary, can I go, too?
This one thing I will vow you,
I'd rather die than to live without you,
Mary, Mary, where are you going to?
Mary, Mary, tell me truly,
What did I do to make you leave me?
Whatever it was I didn't mean to,
You know I never would try and hurt you,
Mary, Mary, where are you going to?
What more, Mary, can I do?
To prove that my love is truly yours?
I've done more now than a clear-thinking man would do!
Mary, Mary, it's not over,
Where you go, I will follow,
'Til I win your love again,
And walk beside you, but, until then,
Mary, Mary, where are you going to?
Mary, Mary, where are you going to?
Mary, where are you going to?
Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, where are you going to?
Awww...Mary, where are you going to?
Mary, Mary,
Mary, where are you going to?

She
by Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart
(She!) She told me that she loved me,
And like a fool I believed her from the start,
(She!) She said she'd never hurt me,
But, then she turned around and broke my heart.
Why am I standing here
Missing her and wishing she were here?
(Hey!) She only did me wrong,
(Hey!) I'm better off alone.
(She!) She devoured all my sweet love,
Took all I had and then she fed me dirt,
(She!) She laughed when I was crying
It was such a joke to see the way it hurt.
Why am I standing here
Missing her and wishing she were here?
(Hey!) She only did me wrong,
(Hey!) I'm better off alone.
And now I know just why she keeps me hanging 'round,
(Hanging 'round)
She needs someone to walk on so her feet don't touch the ground,
(Don't touch the ground)
But, I love her! (Love her!)
I need her! (Need her!)
I want her! (Want her!)
Yeah!, (Yeah!), Yeah!, (Yeah!)
Yeah!-Yeah!-Yeah!-Yeah!-She!
SOLO
Why am I standing here
Missing her and wishing she were here?
(Hey!) She only did me wrong, now,
(Hey!) I'm better off alone.
(She!) Why am I missing her?
(She!) I should be kissing her!
(She!) Why am I missing her?
(She!) I should be kissing her!

Sometime In The Morning
by Gerry Goffin & Carole King
Sometime in the morning,
A simple thought may occur to you,
And you'll hold her,
And tell her all the things you never told her.
Your love has shown me things
I never thought I could see,
I didn't know
It could be done so easily,
Now, I know,
You're where it is for me.
Sometime in the evening,
You're sitting there, by the fireside,
And she'll touch you,
And you will realize
How much you never knew before,
How much you couldn't see,
You didn't know
It could be done so easily,
Now, you know,
She's all a girl could be.
Now, in her child-like eyes,
You'll see the beauty there,
You know it was always there,
And you need no longer wear a disguise.
Sometime in the morning,
You'll just reach out,
And she will be there,
Close as the summer air.
Sometime in the morning,
She will be there,
Sometime in the morning,
She will be there.

(I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone
by Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart
I-I-I-I-I'm not your steppin' stone,
I-I-I-I-I'm not your steppin' stone.
You're trying to make your mark in society,
You're using all the tricks that you used on me,
You're reading all them high-fashion magazines,
The clothes you're wearing, girl, they're causing public scenes.
I said, I-I-I-I-I'm not your steppin' stone,
I-I-I-I-I'm not your steppin' stone. (No!)
Not your steppin' stone,
Not your steppin' stone,
SOLO
I-I-I-I-I'm not your steppin' stone. (No!)
When I first met you, girl, you didn't have no shoes,
But, now you're walking around like you're front page news,
You've been awful careful 'bout the friends you choose,
But, you won't find my name in your book of the "Who's Who".
I said, I-I-I-I-I'm not your steppin' stone, (No, girl, not me!)
I-I-I-I-I'm not your steppin' stone. (No!)
Not your steppin' stone,
I'm not your steppin' stone,
SOLO
Not your steppin' stone,
Not your steppin' stone,
Not your steppin' stone,
Not your steppin' stone,
No, girl, I'm not your steppin' stone,
Not your steppin' stone,
Not your steppin' stone,
Not your steppin' stone,

The Day We Fall In Love
by Sandy Linzer & Denny Randell
There'll be birds singing everywhere,
And the wind will be blowing through your hair,
I'll look into your eyes and wait for the prize,
Your lips kissing mine with a love that is real,
And you'll look so young and fair,
On the day we fall in love, you and me,
On the day we fall in love, you'll see.
There'll be rainbows reaching across the sky,
And we'll both be so happy we'll cry,
We'll walk hand in hand in snow or in sand,
Whether roses are blooming or snowmen stand by,
Time will stop for you and I,
On the day we fall in love,
It will be on the day we fall in love, you'll see.
And if the lines that I say fall apart,
It's because I won't know where to start,
But, you'll understand when I say them to you,
'Cause they'll come straight from my heart,
On the day we fall in love, you and me,
On the day we fall in love, you'll see,
You'll see,
You'll see.

The Kind Of Girl I Could Love
by Michael Nesmith & Roger Atkins
Girl, you look mighty good to me,
And I know that you've got to be,
The kind of girl I could love.
You got the sweetest pair of eyes,
And your kiss would be paradise,
The kind of girl I could love.
You do something to my soul
That no one's ever done,
If you're looking for true love,
Then let me be the one.
Oh, girl, deep in my soul I'm sure,
And my heart has no doubt that you're
The kind of girl I could love.
SOLO
Hey, girl, you look mighty good to me,
And I know that you've got to be,
The kind of girl I could love.
The kind of girl I could love,
The kind of girl I could love,
The kind of girl I could love.
