Blondie A Rose By Any Name

Black and red look so good on you

And your walk makes me believe you

Lipstick, rings are on my fingers

Want the night to always linger

Linger, linger, linger

[Chorus:]

If you’re a boy or if you’re a girl

I love you just the same

Wherever you go, all over the world

A rose by any name

If you’re a boy or if you’re a girl

I love you just the same

Wherever you go, all over the world

A rose by any name (by any name)

A rose by any name (by any name)

A rose by any name (by any name)

A rose by any name

Smoking cigarettes in bed

All the same, what will they get?

In the streets they’ll never know

Mysteries will never show (show)

Show, show, show, show, show, show, show, show

[Chorus:]

If you’re a boy or if you’re a girl

I love you just the same

Wherever you go, all over the world

A rose by any name

If you’re a boy or if you’re a girl

I love you just the same

Wherever you go, all over the world

A rose by any name

A rose by any name

A rose by any name

A rose by any name

(Want the night to always linger)

[Chorus:]

If you’re a boy or if you’re a girl

I love you just the same

Wherever you go, all over the world

A rose by any name

If you’re a boy or if you’re a girl

I love you just the same

Wherever you go, all over the world

A rose by any name

If you’re a boy or if you’re a girl

I love you just the same

Wherever you go, all over the world

A rose by any name

If you’re a boy or if you’re a girl

I love you just the same

Wherever you go, all over the world

A rose by any name

A rose by any name

A rose by any name

A rose by any name

A rose by any name

Blondie Accidents Never Happen

No I don’t believe in luck

No I don’t believe in circumstance no more

Accidents never happen in a perfect world

So I won’t believe in luck

I saw you walking in the dark

So I slipped behind your footsteps for a while

Caught you turning round the block

Fancy meeting in a smaller world, after all

Accidents never happen, could have planned it all

Precognition in my ears

Accidents never happen in a perfect world

Complications disappear

Now you love me

I, yeah, I can tell

I never lied, I never cried

And you, you knew so well

Like the Magi on the hill

I can divinate your presence from afar

And I’ll follow you until

I can bring you to a perfect world

Accidents never happen, could have planned it all

Precognition in my ears

Accidents never happen in a perfect world

Complications disappear

Accidents never happen in a perfect world

Accidents never happen

Accidents never happen in a perfect world

Accidents never happen

Blondie A Girl Should Know Better

Let me tell you about this boy I know

He thinks he’ll get the best of me

He tries to win my affection

With a fancy selection

Of sweet talk and flattery

What my mama had told me

What my mama done told me

Is what this is leading to

Well a girl should know better

And I do

I won’t say he’s cute

He’s got money to-boot

That he doesn’t mind spending on me

I let him see me a lot

I figure why not

There’s worse places I could be

And I have to remind him

That he’ll shudder to find a girl he can be boss to

But a girl should know better

And I do

I wasn’t born yesterday

A girl’s gotta grow up fast these days

All these men seem nice at first

But after a while they get bad and get worse

Well my mama did teach me

That I shouldn’t let you reach me

And I’m sad that I get to miss

And I feel it when we kiss

And when the preacher asks if I’m ready for the task to love and honor you

I say a girl should know better

And I do

And when the preacher asks if I’m ready for the task to love and honor you

I say a girl should know better

And I do

I say a girl should know better

Oh, ’cause I do

I say a girl should know better

I – and I do!

Blondie Backfired

Backfired

Your plan, your plan backfired

Backfired

My man, your plan backfired in your face

You came into my life to test me

Your diplomatic drag depressed me

The glitter in your eyes undressed me

You were polished slick

Really thick

Wasting time dropping lines like

“I could get you into movies”

But we wound up at Hot Jo’s for hamburgers to go

Backfired

Your plan backfired

Backfired

My man, your plan backfired in your face

To steal my mind was your objective

The way you spoke was too aggressive

The silly jokes were not impressive

Like “A travelling salesman met a farmer with three daughters”, yet

All the quips were so suggestive

Then we ran down to Hot Jo’s for hamburgers to go

Backfired

Your plan backfired

Backfired

My man, your plan backfired in your face

Well, come here my little dear, I’ve got what it takes

Give me just what I want and I’ll give you a break

Well, don’t slip on your lips cause you’re talking so fast

Buying for first, crying for last

Well come on my little lady, don’t shoot me down

I’ve got strong connections all over town

Just drop to a dead stop (what?)

Backfired

Your plan backfired

Backfired

My man, your plan backfired in your face

You were polished slick. Really thick

Wasting time dropping lines

Backfired

“A travelling salesman met a farmer with three daughters”, yet

Backfired

Backfired

Your plan backfired

Couldn’t work out no

Backfired

My man, your plan

Backfired in your face

It backfired

Backfired

Your plan just backfired

Oh no, it couldn’t work out, backfired

Better get a new line and try it again

Slick performance on demand

Backfired

You better back up fast and head out west

You may still collect

Backfired

It backfired

Your plan backfired

Too bad

Backfired

My man, your plan backfired

Well, come here my little dear, I’ve got what it takes

Give me just what I want and I’ll give you a break

Well, don’t slip on your lips cause you’re talking so fast

Buying for first, crying for last

Well come on my little lady, don’t shoot me down

I’ve got strong connections all over town

Just drop to a dead stop

Blondie (Can I Find) The Right Words (To Say)

Look up the right words

The ones for today

And use them correctly

And mean what I say

Answer the questions

Crossword confession

Interrogation

I’m down, can we meet

Is it true, do you cheat?

How far can I go?

How much do you know?

What’s the definition?

How much did she mention?

How much does she know?

Can I find the right words to say?

The right words are so hard to say

It’s a challenger puzzle

From the magazine section

Across with the questions

Do the ethics of reference

One hundred twenty brain teasers to torment you

One hundred thoughts

I can’t find the right words to say

My meaning’s not quite getting through

The right words are so hard to say

Can I find the right words for you?

Let’s not hedge our bets

‘Cause the odds are dependent

Please listen instead

Now the whispers are ending

The point’s misleading

As points often do

Can I find the right words for you?

Blondie (I’m Always Touched) By Your Presence Dear

Was it destiny

I don’t know yet

Was it just by chance? Could this be Kismet?

Something in my consciousness told me you’d appear

Now I’m always touched by your presence dear

When we play at cards you use an extra sense (it’s really not cheating)

You can read my hand, I’ve got no defence

When you sent your messages whispered loud and clear

I am always touched by your presence dear

Floating past the evidence of possibilities

We could navigate together, psychic frequencies

Coming into contact with outer entities

We could entertain each one with our theosophies

Stay awake at night and count your R.E.M.’s when you’re talking with your super friends

Levitating lovers in the secret stratosphere

I am still in touch with your presence dear

I am still in touch with your presence dear

I am still in touch with your presence dear, dear, dear, dear, dear

Blondie Angels On The Balcony

Afterglow in a distant row

The door is open and the lights are cold

The children come in here and they dare the ghost

Like a fire burning in a stone

Ah

Silent light in the theatre’s sky

Phantom cigarette and a silent cry

The door swings open and it’s cold outside

Run and hide, run and hide

Ah, ah

They can still see him singing on the corner singing songs

That never fade away, fade into the kids that come along

Memory in a silent seat

Melody on a long retreat

Like an angel on a balcony

Like an angel on a balcony

Ah, ah, ah, ah

Blondie 11:59

Leaning in your corner like a candidate for wax

Sidewalk social scientist don’t get no satisfaction from your cigarette

It’s ten to ten and time is running out

Lock up all your memories, get outa here, you know that we can run

Today can last another million years

Today could be the end of me

It’s 11:59, and I want to stay alive

Pumping like a fugitive in cover from the night

Take it down the freeway like a bullet to the ocean

Wait until the morning, take tomorrow by the hand

Take it down the highway like a rocket to the ocean, we can run

Today can last another million years

Today could be the end of me

It’s 11:59, and I want to stay alive

Hanging on a frequency and burning like a fire

Boy you’ve got the motion down, it’s getting late, I’m tired and I’ve lost control

Don’t leave me here, time is running out

Take me down the highway like a rocket to the ocean, we can run

Today can last another million years

Today could be the end of me

It’s 11:59, and I want to stay alive

Blondie Already Naked

I could tell that God was in the door

November pushed us to the floor

When our last rain fades

We can still radiate

Remember all the time it took

Remember how you gave me that look

And it’s not too late

And it’s not too late

Are you getting dizzy?

Cause there’s something in the water

[Chorus:]

Rewind, already naked

Inside, sun on the pavement

Feels like we could be dancing

Tonight, maybe a chancer[?]

Rewind, already naked

Inside, blood on the pavement

Feels like we could be dancing

Tonight, maybe a chancer[?]

A stylizing interlude

We can’t be safe, nothing to prove

But we’ll be okay

And the [?]

The richer ups and tumble sea

The bed is there for you and me

I’ve got all this time

I’ve got all this time

[Chorus]

Hey yeah yeah yeah…

Are you getting dizzy?

Cause there’s something in the water

[Chorus]
