Caro Emerald Pack Up The Louie

Time just flies

[Verse:]

The clock rings and it’s half past eleven

Can’t believe it but the time just flies

Soon I’ll be on a cruise into heaven

Hearin’ stories and a thousand lies

About the things that I’d never do

Experience that I don’t have

It’s kinda scary, I’m the big queen Mary

Gotta get it, gotta do it fast

Gotta grab a piece of paper, I wish I could find my pen

What am I taking you? What am I waited for?

[Chorus:]

I gotta pack, gotta pack up the Louie

And I can’t leave a thing behind

Gotta pack, gotta pack up the Louie

For every different change of mind

I gotta pack it for every reason

Every season, be it night or day

I gotta pack, gotta pack up the Louie

I love my Louie when I go away

[Bridge:]

Louie, Louie, Louie, pack up the Louie

We’re gonna pack it up every day

Louie, Louie, Louie, pack up the Louie

Lock it up and we’re on our way

Louie, Louie, Louie, pack up the Louie

Pack it up, we’re on our way

Louie, Louie, Louie, pack up the Louie

Louie, Louie, Louie, pack up the Louie

[Verse:]

First stop is gonna be Buenos Aires

Tangolissimo all night long

Two days and we’re heading off to Rio

Carnivalling from morning ’till dawn

Then I’ll samba as Queen Senorita

Do Havana down the emerald way

But before I get on the liner

Some gotta go, some gotta stay

So I grab a piece of paper, tear it out of my cashier

Next time, I’m not hesitating

I think I’m leaving today

[Chorus:]

I gotta pack, gotta pack up the Louie

And I can’t leave a thing behind

Gotta pack, gotta pack up the Louie

For every different change of mind (different change of mind)

I gotta pack it for every reason (every reason)

Every season, be it night or day (night or day)

I gotta pack, gotta pack up the Louie

I love my Louie when I go away

All aboard, Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Havana and the Emerald way

[Verse:]

I gotta get to Pier Nineteen (ta ta da da)

Peer Nineteen on the west side

Is there a porter somewhere (I need a porter)

For a lady in despair

Can you help little me (can you help please little me)

Get this fabulous trunk in the air

[Chorus:]

I gotta pack, gotta pack up the Louie

And I can’t leave a thing behind (can’t leave a thing behind)

Gotta pack, gotta pack up the Louie (pack up the Louie)

For every different change of mind (for every different change of mind)

I got a pocket for every reason (for every reason)

Every season, be it night or day

I gotta pack, gotta pack up the Louie

I love my Louie when I go away

[Bridge:]

Louie, Louie, Louie, pack up the Louie

We’re gonna I pack it up every day

Louie, Louie, Louie, pack up the Louie

Lock it up and we’re on our way

Louie, Louie, Louie, pack up the Louie

Pack it up, we’re on our way

Louie, Louie, Louie, pack up the Louie

And I’m the Louie, we’re on our way

Caro Emerald Liquid Lunch

[Verse:]

Baby, pass the aspirin, something’s gotta work

I know I did it to myself but man oh man it hurts

That second last Martini, the one that went down real smooth

Set me on the bender with nothing left to lose

[Pre-Chorus:]

I just can’t apologize

For what I did to myself

My bed’s an ocean liner

And I can’t call for help

[Chorus x2:]

Yea baby, it hurts a bunch

The girls got going and we had a munch

I promise on a dime, it’s the last time

I’ll ever have a liquid lunch

[Verse:]

I think I’ve got the symptoms and none of them will leave

They think that it’s a party to laugh at all my grief

It must’ve been a doozy, I had two hundred dreams

At least I found my pillow ‘cause I can’t find my keys

[Pre-Chorus 2:]

It’s hard to remember

All of the events

But I must’ve paid the tab

‘Cause all that’s left is fifty cents

[Chorus x2:]

Yea baby, it hurts a bunch

The girls got going and we had a munch

I promise on a dime it’s the last time

I’ll ever have a liquid lunch

[Bridge:]

Baby, I can call the pharmacy

They’ll bring something up, something up ‘toute suite’

Some exotic medicine to cure my every ill

With some kind of magic pill

[Pre-Chorus:]

I just can’t apologize

For what I did to myself

My bed’s an ocean liner

And I can’t call for help

[Chorus x4:]

Yea baby, it hurts a bunch

The girls got going and we had a munch

I promise on a dime, it’s the last time

I’ll ever have a liquid lunch

Caro Emerald Riviera Life

(Eh, Yeah, yeah, hit’m, ye-yeah)

I’m really tired of my concrete jungle

Six days a week is way too much

I’m gonna make the great escape

Go on a little getaway

I’ll go get my beat up motor

Start it up and head for the green

Of endless countrysides

And go somewhere I’ve never been

I’ll stop, kiss my blues goodbye

Breathe until I soar outside my crazy nights

And live the Riviera life

I’ll stop, thank you for today

I’m sure that by candlelight, I’ll be alright

And live a Riviera life

Mmm…

I’ll live a Riviera life

The road can wind like my hidden hair bow

You clear my face so I can feel the breeze

And down below it’s Monaco

And Mister, I don’t know a soul

I’ll drop off the keys at valet

Look out my window bay

One afternoon martini

Wouldn’t want it any other way

I’ll stop, kiss my blues goodbye

Breathe until I soar outside my crazy nights

And live the Riviera life

I’ll stop, thank you for today

I’m sure that by candlelight, I’ll be alright

And live a Riviera life

So whenever

My eyes get weary

I’m not fearing what life brings

Forever

When times make me teary

I’ll know what I was meant to do

I’ve nothing at all to lose

I’ll stop, kiss my blues goodbye

Breathe until I soar outside my crazy nights

And live the Riviera life

I’ll stop, thank you for today

I’m sure that by candlelight, I’ll be alright

And live a Riviera life

Mmm…

Dududa ta ta ta ta ta

Mmm…

I’ll live a Riviera life

Caro Emerald Tangled Up

I took the perfect avenue, down the road to both of you

Did I go dutch?

This is too much!

With all the money in the world

You could never buy this girl

Quite enough, it will be tough

If romancing me with neons is something you should do

Make the letters bright and luminous and blue

And get me waking up

Shaken up

Tangled up

You could be quaking up, making up

Tangled up

You can’t be faking it,

Making it for my love

Before it’s tragedy, don’t get me tangled up

I can’t separate your sins,

To me you’re acting like you’re twins

This is a mess,

Is this a test?

How many guesses do I get?

Till only one of you is left

You’re quite the same,

If love’s the game

I want to see emotions coloring the sky

To the point it will make me wanna cry

And get me waking up

Shaken up

Tangled up

You could be quaking up, making up

Tangled up

You can’t be faking it,

Making it for my love

Before it’s tragedy, don’t get me tangled up

Treating girls like a yo-yo is a no no of monumental kind

If playing with your string happens to be your thing

It’s easy to say to both, oh nevermind

And get me waking up

Shaken up

Tangled up

You could be quaking up, making up

Tangled up

You can’t be faking it,

Making it for my love

Before it’s tragedy, don’t get me tangled up

Tangled up

Tangled up

Tangled up

Caro Emerald Excuse My French

[Verse:]

I don’t know what you must be on

You walked in like the Aga Khan

Did you fly in on a jet?

Win a million dollar bet?

So let me get my good shoes on

I wanna follow in the same old steps

Where you waltz around like you’re the best

Where your garden blooms in May

But it’s snowing every day

‘Cause you have everything you want

[Pre-Chorus:]

You must be

The Houdini in my life

But you can’t see

I could never be your wife

[Chorus:]

‘Cause I’m still a lady

No, I’m not some wench

That postponed your lines

I’m not on the best

Your routine is fading, boy

I could use a wrench

I know my words won’t fail me

Please excuse my French

(Pardone moi)

[Verse:]

Today you think you’re Erol Flynn

Sharing stories where you think you’ve been

Your style must be cramped, without a passport stamp

Can’t you see the twister that you’re in

Lie down inside a sea of words

You’re going under, now you won’t get hurt

So just give it a rest, this time your more is less

You’re going solo in this dream

[Pre-Chorus:]

You must be

The Houdini in my life

But you can’t see

I could never be your wife

[Chorus:]

‘Cause I’m still a lady

No, I’m not some wench

That postponed your lines

I’m not on the best

Your routine is fading, boy

I could use a wrench

I know my words won’t fail me

Please excuse my French

(Pardone moi)

Caro Emerald The Other Woman

Little girl, just keep on waiting

For that man to give you a life

You keep on hoping, so this Prince can save you

Keep on dreaming his scandalous lie

For your love is he the hero, mmm

Does he know that you begging him please

Where angels dare, the devils fill that need

In your despair does he get up to leave

At the start of his goodbye

Do you ever realize

That you never get the chance

All you get is alibis

When smoke begins to fade

And you’re standing face to face

Does he kiss you in a way to say:

“You’re the other woman”

The other woman

Wear that dress, the one you rely on, mmm

Slit up high, that shows off your wares

And when he’s arriving, give him that invitation

Keep on wishing almost all of him cares

For your love he is your hero, yes

Even though you are begging him please, please

Woman unscared, your risks are never ending

And don’t you pretend you don’t live what you breathe

At the start of his goodbye

Do you ever realize

That you never get the chance

All you get is alibis

When smoke begins to fade

And you’re standing face to face

Does he kiss you in a way to say:

“You’re the other woman”

The other woman

You’ll always be the other woman

You’ll always be the other woman

Baby, trust me, I’ve been there before

You don’t know him, I know him more

At the start of his goodbye

Do you ever realize

That you never get the chance

All you get is alibis

When smoke begins to fade

And you’re standing face to face

Does he kiss you in a way to say:

“You’re the other woman”

The other woman

Caro Emerald The Ghost Of You

It’s 4 AM, I sashay with myself

Couples all surround me

So in love, eyes all aglow

Oh, say you found me

All my steps are memorized

Swaying to a rhythm so nice

Patterns of my feet, tattoo the floor

They’re frozen there like ice

I dance with the ghost of you

What else can I do?

You seem too far from view

So I dance with the ghost of you

Defying everything, I stay on the floor

Advances are effective

I’m not saying a thing to a soul

To keep my heart protected

Sirens think I get in their way

Their logic won’t compute

Instead, I’m adding up the hours I spend

With everyone but you

I dance with the ghost of you

What else can I do?

You seem too far from view

So I dance with the ghost of you

They say there’s not much difference between a good man and a long drag from a cigarette

Sometimes you feel it, sometimes you don’t

And sometimes you need it, and sometimes you don’t

But no one likes a ghost

I dance with the ghost of you

What else can I do?

You seem too far from view

So I dance with the ghost of you

Caro Emerald I Belong To You

[Verse:]

Under the stars there shines one light

That always glistens,

Always listens

To the whispers of the night

When skies are black, full of despair

I ask the sun to tell the moon that two of us are there

[Bridge:]

The afterglow

That’s down below

Is when I see you smile.

And in your eyes

True love decides

Forever is a word that cries.

[Chorus:]

That I belong to you

That endless nights so far away are gone, and you

Could never love another.

And I love you too

I see it up above and now I feel the truth

[Verse:]

We overlooked us ocean deep

But now this river that we’re swimming through is promises we keep

The sun comes up, there is no heat

‘Cause what we’re feeling is revealing, all we dared

So let it burn,

It takes its turn

One we never would allow

There is no heart that chance will break

Nothing else could ever stop us now

[Chorus:]

‘Cause I belong to you

That endless nights so far away are gone, and you

Could never love another

And I love you too

I see it up above and now I feel the truth

I belong to you

[Bridge:]

The afterglow

That’s down below

Is when I see you smile.

And in your eyes,

True love decides

Forever is a word that cries.

[Chorus:]

That I belong to you

That endless nights so far away are gone and you

Could never love another

And I love you too

I see it up above and now I feel the truth

I belong to you

Caro Emerald Coming Back As A Man

[Verse 1:]

I live on the edge,

And something has me really turning red,

I toss and then I turn inside this bed, oh yeah,

Yeah, I said it.

I’m unsatisfied,

With all the Romeos and their goodbyes,

Their ‘See ya later’s incomplete the lies,

That’s why I sigh.

[Pre-Chorus:]

It’s not just me I talk about,

Our age is on the way,

All the money in the women’s world will never make him change.

[Chorus:]

Gonna grab the yellow pages,

Find a Davinci of the threads,

To dress me up and make me look like someone else instead.

It’s time for my rehearsal, the ultimate reversal,

You see, I’ve got a plan,

I’m coming back as a man.

[Verse 2:]

I’m gonna wear blue,

And find a pair of flat black leather shoes,

That shine more than a diamond mine could do,

And add something new,

Like wear a cologne,

That says you are the man I’m gonna own,

And whispers ‘baby, will you take me home? ‘

Va va va va va vum

[Pre-Chorus 2:]

I drop a hint and then my keys,

And then I’ll cast a net,

To catch someone who’s in for such a night he won’t forget.

[Chorus:]

Gonna grab the yellow pages,

Find a Davinci of the threads,

To dress me up and make me look like someone else instead.

It’s time for my rehearsal, the ultimate reversal,

You see, I’ve got a plan,

I’m coming back as a man.

[Bridge:]

I’ll hide behind the Errol Flynn moustache,

Remove the false impression to make sure the feeling lasts.

Call me the equalizer for the girls,

And tell me baby, tell me where it hurts.

[Chorus:]

Gonna grab the yellow pages,

Find a Davinci of the threads,

To dress me up and make me look like someone else instead.

It’s time for my rehearsal, the ultimate reversal,

You see, I’ve got a plan,

I’m coming back as a man.

Caro Emerald Stuck

I close my eyes and dream about a sunny holiday

I wish that I was beachin’ down on Saint Tropez

Or sitting in the lobby at the fabulous Pierre

With diamonds on my fingers and not a single care

Instead I’m on the Avenue where nobody goes

With fields of green that wilted like a last summer rose

Some people call it paradise, but I call it pain

Baby take me anywhere, but not here again

Why am I sitting in the middle of nowhere

Standing here with nothing to do

Wondering if I really love you, oh oh

I guess that I do

Why am I sitting in the middle of nowhere

Standing here with nothing to do

Wondering if I really love you, oh oh

I guess that I do

You promised me a motorcade and endless perfume

A palace in Geneva with a perfect view

And dreams painted yellow like the color of gold

And dine with kings and queens ’till the food gets cold

Instead I’m on the edge of all I thought I would be

This dream is now a comedy I don’t wanna see

Some people call it laughter but I call it pain

Baby take me anywhere but not here again

Why am I sitting in the middle of nowhere

Standing here with nothing to do

Wondering if I really love you, oh oh

I guess that I do

Why am I sitting in the middle of nowhere

Standing here with nothing to do

Wondering if I really love you, oh oh

I guess that I do

Oh I do

I know we have a chemistry

This combination’s heavenly

But don’t forget you promised me

Everything, everything

I know we have a chemistry

This combination’s heavenly

But don’t forget that you promised me

Everything

Why am I sitting in the middle of nowhere

Standing here with nothing to do

Wondering if I really love you, oh oh

I guess that I do

Why am I sitting in the middle of nowhere

Standing here with nothing to do

Wondering if I really love you, oh oh

I guess that I do
