Detective Jones Jones

He went away
So far away on a holiday
He met a girl in a greasy bar
He should've known he wouldn't get that far
They found him in a trunk of a car

This is a case for Detective Jones
He's gonna start his own investigation
An S.O.S to Detective Jones
He's busy on the phones across the nation

This girl
Really famous all around the world
Did she fall down from that balcony
Or was it murder of the first degree?
It all remains a mystery

This is a case for Detective Jones
He's gonna start his own investigation
An S.O.S. to Detective Jones
He's busy on the phones across the nation

Oooh - here he comes
The man's got a master plan
Oooh - here he comes

Our Jones has got his marker down

This is a case for Detective Jones
You'll never walk alone when he's in your town
A cry for help to Detective Jones
He's busy on the phones, preparing a showdown now

Beautiful Things, Terrible Things

Beautiful things
Are comin’ my way
Beautiful things
I want them to stay
But after a while
My beautiful things
Don’t seem beautiful at all

Terrible things
Like when you wake up
And all of your dreams
Seem to crack up
Like things you have done
Like breakin’ my heart
For you it don’t seem
Terrible at all

Is there someone I can talk to?
Is there someone on the line?
Does anybody want to hear
What’s on my mind?

Beautiful things
Like leaves on a tree
Beautiful things
The sky and the sea
Since you’ve been gone
All beautiful things
Don’t seem
Beautiful to me

Is there someone I can talk to?
Is there someone on the line?
Does anybody want to hear
What’s on my mind?

B-Any-1-U-Wanna-B

Be anyone you wanna be
Be anyone you wanna be
But baby, if you come as you are
That's alright with me

Everybody wants to be someone else
Everybody wants to change their name and face
Everybody wants to be on TV
Everybody knows that 1+1=3

Be anyone you wanna be
Be anyone you wanna be
But baby, if you come as you are
That's alright with me

Everybody wants to be a man of the world
Everybody wants to watch the poor little rich girl
Everybody wants to sow the perfect seed
Everybody wants to be what everybody needs

Be anyone you wanna be
Be anyone you wanna be
But baby, if you come as you are
That's alright with me

Everybody wants to change their shirts and ties
Everybody wants the truth behind all lies
I can stay all night
Just to watch your eyes
Everybody wants invisibility
My mother still wants Ringo to come on over for tea

Be anyone you wanna be
Be anyone you wanna be
But baby, if you come as you are
That's alright with me
Everybody wants to change their shirts and ties
Everybody wants the truth behind all lies

Do You Wanna Be My Baby?

I saw you rushin' down the street
People were pushin' in the heat
Well, I was stuck behind the wheel
I guess y'all know how it fells
Well, I was trying to keep your pace
You kicked me flat out on my face
You sent me cravin' on the moon
Up to the air like a balloon

How come you're lookin' so good?
How come you're lookin' so fine?
I wasn't ready for you
Well, I was just passin' time

Do you do you do you do you
Do you wanna be my baby?
Do you do you do you do you
Do you wanna be my baby?
I really gotta know, oh oh
I really gotta know, oh oh

It's really tricky to explain
It's really crazy to stay sane
Some things they happen really fast
Some things are born and bred to last

How come you're lookin' so cool?
How come you're lookin' so fine?
No one is ready for you
I'm only passin' my time

Do you do you do you do you
Do you wanna be my baby?
Do you do you do you do you
Do you wanna be my baby?
I really gotta know, oh oh
I really gotta know, oh oh
I really gotta know, oh oh
I really wanna know, oh oh

Do you do you do you do you
Do you wanna be my baby?
Do you do you do you do you
Do you wanna be my baby?
I really gotta know, oh oh
I really gotta know, oh oh
I really gotta know, oh oh
I really gotta know, oh oh
I really gotta know, oh oh
I really wanna know, oh oh
I really gotta know, oh oh
I really wanna know, oh oh
I gotta wanna know

Elvis in Deutschland

The sky was so clear, it was a beautiful day
The King did arrive in such a glamorous way
Women ravin’ wavin’ hands in the air, oh yea
Men were cheerin’, children started to stare

The King told the crowd he was the luckiest guy
He’d finally come through to the European side
A navy band got ready and started to play, he-hey
Another song from those mighty glorious days

Oh boy, did he look good in green!
Oh boy, did he did he look good in green!
Oh boy!

This sunny afternoon
He sleeps his Saturday away
Locked in his room

These were the days of peace and joy in our hearts
No Major Tom was to be seen in the charts
No Sgt Pepper was playin’ around in your home, oh no
Just Colonel Parker countin’ the money alone

But boy, did he look good in green!
Oh boy, did he did he look good in green!
Oh boy!

This sunny afternoon
He sleeps his Saturday away
Locked in his room
And boy, he don’t have many friends
But one is good enough to know
When you’re alone
So alone

The King told the crowd he was a fortunate guy
He thanked them and smiled and made all the girls break down and cry
Cos they all know that this was the bitter end, oh yea
That things would never be quite the same again

Oh boy, did he look good in green!
Oh boy, did he did he look good in green!
Oh boy!

This sunny afternoon
He sleeps his Saturday away
Locked in his room
And boy, he don’t have many friends
But one is all you need to know
When you’re alone
So alone

Every Day Outside My Window

Every day outside my window
Every day she passes by
I used to be a normal person
Before she came into my life

Every night I keep on dreamin’
Every night I take her home
We always go to bed together
I always wake up all alone

Every day I see her comin’
Always 22 to 8
I wish she stayed a little longer
But her bus is never late

Every night we’re dancin’ slowly
I play the music she adores
Like Sinatra, then we’re watchin’
Movies from before the war

It’s strange (so strange), so strange
What she is doin’ to me
Strange (so strange), so strange
Did this ever happen to you
The way it just happened to me?

I Want You To Know

Ever since I saw you
Entering my world
Life has really changed
To diamonds and pearls
I'm tryin' to take it slow
Just goin' with the flow

I want you to know
I want you to stay
Don't go

Every day's the same
Like cracks on the wall
But every time I meet you
All walls start to fall
But I'm tryin' to take things slow
Just goin' with the flow

I want you to know
I want you to stay
Don't go

I want you to know
I'm comin' your way
Don't go
I want you to know
I want you to stay
Don't go
I want you to know
I want you today
Don't go

I'll Be Alright

It you ever leave me
If you ever let me down
If you ever tell me
You don't want my love around

I'll be alright
You gave me the best years of my life
And a girl like you is very hard to find
So everything will be alright

People change, I know it
It's a most natural thing
And if you want to show it
You don't owe me anything

I'll be alright
I had the moments of my life
All I need is a little time to cry
Then everything will be alright

Take it easy, baby
I wouldn't change a thing (anything about it)
After all, honey
I don't regret anything

I'll be alright
You gave me the finest things in life
And a love like that is very hard to find
So everything will be alright
You gave me the best years of my life
A love like that is very hard to find
So everything will be alright

June Afternoon

Didn't I tell you everything is possible in this déjà vu?
Try the river boat the carousel feed the pigeons Bar-B-Q
look at all the people happy faces all around
smiling throwing kisses busy making lazy sounds

It's a bright June afternoon it never gets dark
Wah-wah! Here comes the sun
Get your green green tambourine let's play in the park
Wah-wah! Here comes the sun

Some folks are on blankets slowly daydreaming
and reaching for their food
let's go buy an icecream and a magazine with an attitude
and put on the cassette we can pretend that you're a star
cos life's so very simple just like la-la-la

It's a bright June afternoon it never gets dark
Wah-wah! Here comes the sun
Get your green green tambourine let's play in the park
Wah-wah! Here comes the sun

There's a painter painting his masterpiece
there are some squirrels jumping in the trees
there's a wide-eyed boy with a red balloon
all my life I've longed for this afternoon

It's a bright June afternoon it never gets dark
Wah-wah! Here comes the sun
get your green green tambourine let's play in the park
Wah-wah! Here comes the sun

Marie: This is a very Per Gessle-ish song... straight, simple, sunny. Per: A summer song , written in winter. Gessle-ish? Yeah, maybe. Marie: Yes, it's so much you... perfect for you to sing. Per: Well, in my litle world songs like this have always topped the charts. I've sent lots of dead simple songs like this to other artists and they all seem to have problems doing them right, especially if they've got big voices - whereas I can get away with it - almost. Marie: Almost always. Per: You know, our producer Clarence Öfwerman sometimes jokes about my songs being too much "ice cream and balloons", too jolly and lightweight - but this is actually the first Roxette song to include both "ice cream" and "balloons" in the lyrics. A nice first.

From "Don't Bore Us - Get To The Chorus!"

Kix

All around the world you go
All around the world you go
All around the world you go
The more you go
The less you know, hey baby
You'll never stand a chance

All you're lookin' for is somebody to feed you
All you're lookin' for is something in the air
All you're gettin' are some trash to breathe
The more you leave
The more we love you, baby
Why should you stand a chance?

All that you love
All that you need
You came in for kix
All that you love
All that you need
You came in for kix

You're a super accident
You're a major accident
Everybody's tryin' to pay the rent
-"Out she went!"
It's heaven sent, hey baby
You'll never understand

All that you love
All that you need
You came in for kix
You're workin' so hard
On your demand
It's all about kix

It's not that funny, is it?
It's not that funny, is it?
It's not that funny... funny...

All that you love
All that you need
You came in for kix
You're workin' so hard
On your demand
It's all about kix

All that you love
All that you dig
You came in for kix
It's all in your head
It's all in your blood
It's all about kix

Lay Down Your Arms

Babe, it feels like I've known you forever
You're a most peculiar girl
You seem to belong to a different world
And whatever you're thinkin' about me
Whatever you've heard around town
This time it's for real
the deal is all done

Lay down your arms
Right from the start
I'm out to make sure
I'll capture your heart
Lay it all down

When my love is comin' around
Whatever you planned for this summer
Whatever you'll read in my palm
There's no lookin' back babe
surrender your heart, yea yea yea
Lay down your arms
Right from the start
I'm out to make sure
I'll capture your heart
Lay it all down
When my love is comin' around
Comin' around
Lay down your arms
Right from the start
I'm out to connect
To capture your heart
Lay it all down
When my love is comin' around
Comin' around

Love Doesn't Live Here

I wake up each day
I wanna sleep that day away
I catch a train in the rush hour rain
Some people are talking to me
I don't care what they say
Cos I know

Love doesn't live here
now you've gone away
Love doesn't live here but I'm left to stay
And I thought it was me and you who gave it all
Yes I thought it was me and you who couldn't fall
But it's all over now
over now

Friends on the phone
life is good, life goes on
But I spend my days in a heart broken haze
Of movies and lonely tunes
every song seems to be about you

Oh, love doesn't live here
since you went away
Love doesn't live here but I'm here to stay
And I thought you and me
we were the chosen ones
Yes I thought you and me
we'd sail into the sun
But it's gone, it's over now

Do you ever think about it?
Do you wanna talk about it with me?

Love doesn't live here since you went away
Love doesn't live here but I'm left to stay
And I thought it was me and you who had it all
Yes I thought it was me and you who stood so tall
But it's all over now
yes it's all over now
Over now
It's all over now, baby

Making Love To You

There was a night to say
something to cherish on a rainy day
if I close my eyes and go blind
I'm in the middle of the rush rush

Making love to you
is all I ever wanted to do

And I leave the world behind
I laugh at all the things I've done for you
if there was a dream to say
I'm in the middle of a rush rush

Making love to you
is all I ever wanted to do

Making love
Making love to you
Making love
Making love to you

Your love is so sweet to recall
the greatest of them all
I'm easy on my knees for you

Making love to you
I couldn't love you
anymore than I do
God knows
it's all I ever wanted to do

All I ever wanted to do

Saturday

It's Saturday and I'm sleepin' late again
Goin' down on a dream
It's Saturday - Kickin' the workin' week away is the greatest thing
It's a perfect day
In a perfect world
Such a perfect day
What a perfect world

It's Saturday and it's rainin' constantly
It's the best God can do
It's Saturday and the man on the TV-screen
Wanna sell me some shoes
It's a perfect day
In a perfect world
Such a perfect day
What a perfect world

Saturday
I'm not too sure if I'm laughin' or cryin'
Saturday
I'm tryin' to find a space of my own
It's Saturday and I'm sleepin' late again

I'm tryin' to find some space of my own.

Stupid

Everything you do you do so right
The clothes you buy are awfully nice
You wear your image bullet-proof
Your stocks are always thru the roof

You make me feel so stupid
Make me feel stupid

And you grew up
made in the sun
They all loved you from Day 1
You always remembered everyone's name
You always won the guessing games, ooh yeah

You make me feel so stupid
Make me feel stupid
And I'm not gonna take it anymore
I'm not gonna take it anymore

You always pick the perfect wine
Your money is sho 'nuff greener than mine
Your wit pours out when you open your mouth
My hometown is smaller than your house

You make me feel so stupid
Make me feel stupid
And I'm not gonna take it anymore
I'm not gonna take it anymore
I'm not gonna take it anymore
I'm not gonna take it anymore
You make me feel stupid
So stupid
You make feel stupid, ooh ooh
You make me feel so stupid

T-T-T-Take It!

She is such a good girl livin' down the street
Workin' in the diner at the local brewery
She's married to this man for reasons I can only guess
He always beats her up and turns her face into a mess
I'm watchin' from the outside
Outside lookin' in
Watchin' from the outside

T-T-T-Take it!
T-T-Take it away
don't you leave it alone
When you walk out that door
honey you're on your own
Hey, God knows you'll be glad when he's gone

Sometimes when it's rainin' she doesn't go to work
She's lookin' at some pictures of her dad who was a clerk
She's puttin' on a record form the spring of 65
She's dancin' by herself with big faraway eyes
I'm watchin' from the outside
Outside lookin' in
Watchin' from the outside

T-T-T-Take it!
T-T-Take it away
don't you leave it alone
When you walk out that door
honey you're on your own
You'll be glad when he's buried and gone
Yea, God knows you'll be glad when he's gone
Take it away
go back home
Take it away
won't you please go back home

There Is My Baby

I drive home late at night
Real tired
Got the radio blastin' high
I kill an hour on the freeway
It's so easy
Cos I know what's waitin' for me
I park the car in the yard
Got my key in the direction
And suddenly she appears
In front of me like 1-2-3

There is my baby
There is my girl
And she looks so fine
Best thing that ever happened in my life

Sometimes I feel so alone
All destroyed
Cryin' like a baby boy
She puts her arms around me
Then she kisses me
And tells me stupid little things I adore
In this old town you're bound to lose
I was the one with my mouth shut down
There's just one real reality
Waitin' there ahead of me

There is my baby
There is my girl
And she looks so fine
Best thing that ever happened in my life

Yes, she looks so fine
Best thing that ever happened in my life
Yes, she looks so fine
God, she looks so fine

Wish You The Best

Stay forever
Stay a little while
I'm pleased to see you
I'm pleased to see you smile
September clouds
Shaped just like shells
September rain
Should fall somewhere else
It's been a long time
A lonely long time for me
I've missed your body
I've missed you company

There was a girl
Who looked just like you
There where some nights
You passed thru my room
And I walk around this small town
Like small town people do
You would never stay for long
Always passin' thru

Shine forever
Shine a little while
I'm pleased to see you
I'm pleased to see you smile
This distant dream
It might as well rest
I wish you peace
I wish you the best
Wherever you'll go
Whatever you'll do
I wish you the best
