Tommy James And The Shondells Love’s Closin’ In On Me

Something is happening inside me

Something is starting to excite me

Think I’m on the edge of disaster

I think I feel my heart beating faster

Every time I look at you

Every time I see you looking, too

[Chorus]

Love’s closin’ in on me and I can feel it

Love’s closin’ in on me and I can feel it

Love’s closin’ in on, yeah, it’s closin’ in on

Love is closin’ in on me

Seems as if I’m losing control of

Feelings inside I’m trying not to show, love

Could be a groovy situation

I get a new sensation

Every time I look at you

Every time I see you looking, too

[repeat chorus]

Every time I look at you

Every time I see you looking, too

Love’s closin’ in on me and I can feel it

Tommy James And The Shondells I Can’t Take It No More

You may be right, you may be wrong, girl

I’ve been hurtin’ much too long, girl

You know, I think I’ve finally reached the end

You keep tellin’ me that guy’s just a friend

We’ve been all through it and you’ll do it again

Don’t stand there tellin’ me, girl, that you’re so sorry

Baby, baby, I can’t take it no more

Baby, baby, I can’t take it no more

You build me up, you let me down, girl

I’m not the kind to fool around, girl

If this guy really means so much more

Than all the happiness that we had before

Just go ahead, girl, and walk out the door

You know I can’t go on, I’d rather see you gone

Baby, baby, I can’t take it no more

Baby, baby, I can’t take it no more

Baby, baby, I can’t take it no more

Baby, baby, I can’t take it no more

Tommy James And The Shondells Gotta Get Back To You

Fortunata woman,

you know I wanted to fly,

make it by myself alone.

Now I’m lookin’ for a man

with a silver dollar shoeshine,

I gotta get a way back home.

Listen to me, woman,

now can’t you hear me callin’,

I’ve got a lot of love to do.

Don’t you know I’m gonna cry some,

I know I’m gonna die some,

I gotta get back to you.

[Chorus]

Gotta get back, gotta get back,

gotta get, gotta get back to you.

Gotta get back,

gotta get back,

gotta get,

gotta get back to you.

Fortunata woman,

the monkey man’s dead

and the junkie didn’t get too far.

But I’m singin’ my song,

‘cuz I got my head,

and my bed, and my red guitar.

I’m a-rollin’ down the highway,

now don’t you get in my way,

Mister, I’m a comin’ through.

Well, I know I’m gonna cry some,

you know I’m gonna die some,

I gotta get back to you.

Gotta get back, gotta get back,

gotta get, gotta get back to you.

Gotta get back,

gotta get back,

gotta get,

gotta get back to you.

Gotta get back, gotta get back,

gotta get, gotta get back to you.

Gotta get back,

gotta get back,

gotta get,

gotta get back to you.

Tommy James And The Shondells Somebody Cares

If you think I’d ever leave you,

Girl, you’re wrong, I’d never want to.

And how could you know that my love is real?

A-take this kiss, and you’ll know how I feel.

[Chorus]

Somebody cares, and I’m gonna make you see.

Somebody cares, so put your trust in me, baby.

Now the time is going and the sky is cloudy.

The birds are leaving and the cold is nearing.

A-trust in me and you’ll know the reason

That our love will last through many a season.

[repeat chorus]

So give me a smile and you’ll know that our love’s true.

Don’t be in doubt, ’cause I’d never hurt you.

A-trust in me and you’ll know the reason

That our love will last through many a season.

Tommy James And The Shondells I Am A Tangerine

Hello banana, I am a tangerine.

Is it a dream? Oh, no! I don’t think so, but

My head is spinning, I am a carousel.

Don’t-cha hear the bells ringin’ in my ear?

And I haven’t any troubles,

‘Cause the friendly, friendly bubbles wash them away.

I am so mellow, I am a jello man.

Yes I am and nothing touches me.

Oh, no, I think it’s over

For the fire’s gettin’ lower, I’m fallin’ down.

Hello banana, I am a tangerine. [repeat and fade]

Tommy James And The Shondells Smokey Roads

Roamin’ down smokey roads,

I’m roamin’ down lonely roads.

I came back to take a look at my childhood,

But all I found was a big stack of plywood,

And a whole bunch of people I don’t even know, uh-huh.

Roamin’ down smokey roads,

I’m roamin’ by lonely roads.

Ain’t it funny how you wanna come back again,

To the old home town that you left when you were ten,

And maybe even bump into an old time friend?

[Spoken] Ain’t nothin’ here for me.

Roamin’ down smokey roads,

Mm, I’m stollin’ down smokey roads.
