The Box Tops I See Only Sunshine

I sat last night at midnight

Blinded by the daylight

Sitting at the window, thinking about you and me

I see our lives together

I see our love forever

I picture in my heart every night how it’s gonna be

Yea, Lord now…

I see only sunshine

For you and me, for years to come, now

I can see it, can’t you see it too?

We can share the nighttime

‘Til the morning’s shining squints our eyes, now

Years of loving me and years of loving only you

I catch myself in daydreams

Thinking about the hard times we’ve seen

We’ve been through it; there ain’t nothing but good times ahead

I walk into walls, forget things

Forget too match my clothes, my ears ring

It circles in my head, did you listen to what I said, now?

Yea, Lord now

I see only sunshine

For you and me, for years to come, now

I can see it, can’t you see it too?

We can share the nighttime

‘Til the morning’s shining squints our eyes…

The Box Tops I Met Her In Church

I met her in church!

I met her in church, on a Sunday morning

She looked at me with eyes of love, as the choir sang, “Hallelujah!”

Hallelujah!

I met her in church

I met her in church; we fell in love on a Sunday morning

All at once, I heard angels singing, singing “Hallelujah!”

Singing, Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

I didn’t find her on a Saturday night;

I found her in the Sunday morning light

I found her on a back row seat

In a little church just down the street

I met her in church, and I wed her in church

Preacher Jones said, “Come here, children

Good Lord willing, and the creek don’t rise

You’re going to be happy for the rest of your life!

Singing, Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

I met her in church; I met her in church

I found a love, I found a love!

Hallelujah, I found a love

Right there in church, I found a love

Singing, Hallelujah!

I met her in church; I met her in church

Hallelujah!

The Box Tops Flying Saucers Rock’n Roll

Well, the news of the saucer been a-flyin’ around

I’m the only one that seen it on the ground

First thing I seen when I saw it land

Cats jumped out and they formed a band

Flyin’ saucer rock and roll, flyin’ saucer rock and roll

I couldn’t understand the things they said

But that crazy beat just a stopped me dead

Well the little green men, they were real hep-cats

Rockin’ and a-rollin’ to the crazy flats

They brought out a sax and they started to blow

They brought out the drums and they started to roll

Flyin’ saucer rock and roll, flyin’ saucer rock and roll

I couldn’t understand the things they said

But that crazy beat just a stopped me dead

Well, I come out a-hidin’ and I started to rock

Little green men tought me how to do the bop

They were three foot high, hit a few bars

Started rock and roll al the way from mars

Flyin’ saucer rock and roll, flyin’ saucer rock and roll

I couldn’t understand the things they said

But that crazy beat just a stopped me dead

The Box Tops Fields Of Clover

You’re walking in fields of clover

I hear you finally made it to the classy side of town

It made me sad, got to feeling bad, until I thought it over

And now I’m all right, because you’re all right

Baby, baby, I know you’re sleeping warm tonight

You crossed the tracks in a hurry. Yes you did

You didn’t even stop, to tell me goodbye, yeah

But them pretty dresses that you’re wearing, baby

Are payment enough. You’re sure looking tough

I always told you, ah, that you had the stuff. Yeah, yeah…

Baby, you’re walking in fields of clover

You’re stepping high, like a lady should

Now maybe someday you’ll wave to me from across the tracks, yeah,

And I’ll be all right, knowing you’re all right

Baby, baby, I know you’re sleeping warm tonight. Yeah, yeah…

The Box Tops Whiter Shade Of Pale

We skipped the light fandango, turned cartwheels ‘cross the floor

I was feeling kinda seasick but the crowd called out for more

The room was humming harder as the ceiling flew away

When we called out for another drink, the waiter brought a tray

And so it was, a little later, as the miller told his tale

That her face at first just ghostly turned a whiter shade of pale

She said there is no reason and the truth is plain to see

That I’ve wondered through my playing cards, would not let her be

One of sixteen vestal virgins who were leaving for the coast

And although my eyes were open, they might just as well have been closed

And so it was, a little later, as the miller told his tale

That her face at first just ghostly turned a whiter shade of pale

And so it was, a little later, as the miller told his tale

That her face at first just ghostly turned a whiter shade of pale

The Box Tops Weeping Analeah

Yesterday the sun was shining but you’re finding the sun it

Don’t shine all the time

A winter day suddenly came your way

You ran into your mind

Sleeping Analeah, Weeping Analeah

Do you think you’re ready for me?

Oh and yesterday is gone forever and ever, never

To be again

You looked for the sunshine, that brought warmth to your mind

But find only rain

Sleeping Analeah, Weeping Analeah

No, you’re not ready for me

But when yesterday becomes a memory, a memory

That we uncovered in time

If you still remember that cold September

I reigned in your mind

Sleeping Analeah, Weeping Analeah

Then you’d be ready for me

And I tell her

Soothe me baby

Soothe me

Soothe me with your kindness

For you know your powerful love is soothing to me

Oh

Have them big and small

Oh

The Box Tops Everytime

Every time I think of you

I get a little bit blue

It happens every time

Photographs, souveniers

Remind me of those happy years

It happens every time

Just when I think I’ve got you outta my mind

Some old memory comes along, and spoils it every time

Every time I hear your name

I feel a dreadful pain

It happens every time

Our old friends, who make me blue

They keep reminding me of you

It happens every time

Times I see you walking down the street

And my heart falls to my feet

It happens every time

Now if the crowds would disappear

And I just can’t hold back my tears

It happens every time

Every time I see you, I have a strong attack

Every time I see you, I long to have you back, every time
