Tommy James And The Shondells Candy Maker

He’s a candy maker when he’s baking some time, y’all

You better jump back

Hey, don’t you interfere with his mind, y’all

He wakes up in the morning with a smile in his head

Cause he’s upside

He’s got the beat in his bed

And he’ll get your yo-yo

Wind it up and let it go, come on

He’s a candy maker like a loving machine, y’all

Going up and down and getting out and right in-between, y’all

Hey, you better watch you can feel him creeping up from behind

So easy to see

But so hard to find

Johnny, Johnny on the spot

Show him, show him what you got, come on

Kelly told Anne how I was crying

Rained all day

Rained all night

Kelly told Anne stop her crying

All of a sudden he found himself with a whole lot of responsibility

Rained all day

Rained all night

Kelly told Anne to go catch fireflies

Rained all day

Rained all night

Kelly was a man, but couldn’t hold back the sky

So rained all day

Used to come by most everyday and babysit with me

Wave goodbye

As Kelly went away, oh, Lord, I used to cry

Rained all day

Rained all night

Tommy James And The Shondells I Think We’re Alone Now

“Children, behave”

That’s what they say when we’re together

“And watch how you play”

They don’t understand

And so we’re running just as fast as we can

Holding on to one another’s hand

Trying to get away into the night

And then you put your arms around me

As we tumble to the ground and then you say

I think we’re alone now

There doesn’t seem to be anyone around

I think we’re alone now

The beating of our hearts is the only sound

Look at the way

We gotta hide what we’re doing

‘Cause what would they say

If they ever knew

And so we’re running just as fast as we can

Holding on to one another’s hand

Trying to get away into the night

And then you put your arms around me

As we tumble to the ground and then you say

I think we’re alone now

There doesn’t seem to be anyone around

I think we’re alone now

The beating of our hearts is the only sound

I think we’re alone now

There doesn’t seem to be anyone around

I think we’re alone now

The beating of our hearts is the only sound

I think we’re alone now

There doesn’t seem to be anyone around

I think we’re alone now

Tommy James And The Shondells Kathleen McArthur

I work for the father of Kath-a-leen McArthur,

So respectable, so refined.

I tend to the garden, I then clean the yard

And straighten up the “No trespassing” sign.

Oh, they’ve got a fishing yacht and a limousine,

And a very lovely daughter, Kath-a-leen.

In a house that’s fit for twenty, there they sit with plenty,

Independently, high society.

Every morning when I meet her, I tip my hat to greet her

“Well hello, Kathleen, how are you today?”

Kathleen, so serene, Daddy’s unaware

Of the mask you wear, and the love we share.

Yes, I work for the father of Kath-a-leen McArthur,

So respectable, so refined.
