Tommy James And The Shondells Love Makes The World Go Round

You know, love makes the world go ’round

And love, baby, make the seesaws go up and down

And it makes the trees grow tall

And the most important thing of all

It makes a boy and girl, yeah, say they feel so fine, now (feel so fine)

Tommy James And The Shondells Don’t Throw Our Love Away

Don’t throw our love away

Give me a chance to say

All of those things I’ve never said before

Cause I want you, cause I need you (I love you)

Swallow your foolish pride

My love’s too strong to hide

Tore me apart, girl, when you went away

Cause I want you, cause I need you (I love you)

Does it have to end this way, girl?

I’d try to stop you if I could

Guess it doesn’t matter anyway

Cause it won’t do me no good

Swallow your foolish pride

My love’s too strong to hide

Tore me apart, girl, when you went away

Cause I want you, cause I need you (I love you)

Don’t throw our love away

Give me a chance to say

All of those things I’ve never said before

Cause I want you, cause I need you (I love you)

Don’t throw our love away

Tommy James And The Shondells Juanita

Her house has a doorman, mine has just a door.

Her house has rich carpeting, mine, a splintered floor.

Chandeliers hang from her ceiling, plaster falls from mine.

Her daddy’s a bank president, mine’s on the welfare line.

[Chorus]

Juanita, nothin’s gonna stop our love.

Juanita, nothin’s gonna stop our love.

We’ll build a mansion so high on the hill.

We’ll make it, baby, you know that we will.

[repeat Chorus]

She’s used to great big diamonds, so I take her to a baseball game.

She’s used to furs, so we go feed the squirrels on Lover’s Lane.

She’s used to big, long automobiles, so we ride on the bus.

There ain’t too much of what I’ve got, but it’s enough for us.

[repeat Chorus and fade]

Tommy James And The Shondells Nightime

Oh, now

Yeah

Tick, tock

I see trouble

Nightime, I’m a lover

No time ever seems the same

No

Cause when it’s nightime I start grooving

Take time, I stop moving

Take time, stretch another day

Day, here is just my time for rest

Night is made for me

That’s when I’m at my best, my best, my best, my best now, baby

Nightime is for wasting

I’m too busy tasting

Every joy that I can find

And that’s when nightime I’m a lover

Too much to discover

Life’s so great it blows my mind

Day, here is just my time for rest

Night is made for me

That’s when I’m at my best, my best, my best, my best now, baby

Oh, yeah

Ah

The nightime

Baby, such a nightime ago

Taking about the nightime

Oh, we can’t get it now, girl

Oo, the nightime

Is my kind of time

Beneath the sunshine

Push that town, yeah, baby

Mmm, taking about the nightime

Baby, it’s the right time

Such a fine time

Going to be together now girl

Mmm, baby, in the nightime

I feel so scared of time

Yeah, feel like sleep’s time

Mmm, baby it’s the right time, the right time, baby

The nightime

Tommy James And The Shondells Wish It Were You

She’s the kind of girl that all the guys are dreaming of

She’s got everything it takes to make me fall in love

And although she’s been so good to me there is something wrong and I can see that my love is gone and I regret though it may seem wrong there is someone else that I can’t forget

Wish it was you (I was holding)

Wish it was you (mmm, wish it was you)

Wish it was you

She has always given me her love in every way

And her loving arms have pulled me through my darkest day

And although it may seem so unkind there’s another girl that’s on my mind

She’ll never know how hard I’ve tried to pretend that I have feelings that I don’t have insided

Wish it was you (here beside me)

Tommy James And The Shondells Mirage

I see you standing in the alleys and the hallways

(Wait a second)

You’re gone now

I run to touch you, but you vanish through the doorway

And, oh, how

Hard it is to live without you

I love everything about you

Now I know you’re really gone

But my imagination is so strong

That I see you coming into view

And your face is telling me that you

Oh, yeah, oh, want to be by my side

Oh, yeah, oh, now it’s finally time

(Wait a second)

Mirage, that’s all you are to me

Mirage, something I only see

So I keep walking through the alleys and the hallways

Where are you?

I keep remembering the kissing in the doorways

The car, too

How it all comes back to me

The movies every Saturday

The place we used to go to eat

I want so much to have it like it used to be

That I see you coming into view

And your face is telling me that you

Oh, yeah, oh, want to be by my side

Oh, yeah, oh, now it’s finally time

(Here it comes again)

Mirage, that’s all you are to me

Mirage, something I only see

Just a mirage, that’s all you are to me

Just a mirage, something that I only see

Just a mirage, that’s all you are to me

Just a mirage, something that I only see
