1. MISTER SOFTEE

                      (music and lyric: August Darnell)                             
You're no good for me!
I got a funny feelin' baby that tonight you wanna sleep with me
(don't say it, you know you shouldn't say it)
But I got a 'pointment in the mornin', need at least eleven hours of sleep!
(you said it, I asked you not to say it)
I'm so sorry, babe

         You're a softee, by trade
         Mister Softee's your name
         You're a softee and hardly my type
Don't say that, don't say that!
Don't you make an issue over somethin' that's as small as this
I'll make it up to you tomorrow evenin' babe if you insist
Oh

        You're a softee, by trade
 Who you talkin' to?
        Mister Softee's your name
        You're a softee and hardly my type
Don't say that, don't say that

        I've had enough in my life
        of sweet and sour goodnights
        I know you can't satisfy
        but at least you could try
        You're no good for me

Would you rather I forget about my livelihood and stay at home?
 (don't say it, you know you shouldn't say it)
Well then you must give up your credit cards, must give up your Maud Frizons
 (you said it, I asked you not to say it)
I'm so sorry, babe

         You're a softee, by trade
Who you talkin' to?
         Mister Softee's your name
There's no sense squawkin' 'bout it
         You're a softee and hardly my type
Don't say that, don't say that

          I've had enough in my life
          of sweet and sour goodnight
          I know you can't satisfy
          but at least you could try
          You're no good for me

You got a funny way of showin' me that baby you're in love with me
  (don't say it, you know you shouldn't say it)
Just because I need a little rest, you wanna torture me
  (you said it, I asked you not to say it)

              You're a softee, by trade
              Mister Softee's your name
              You're a softee, by trade
              Mister Softee's your name
 
You're the softee, my friend
You're soft in your head
Softee my friend
Soft in the head

          You're a softee, by trade
Who you talkin' to?
           Mister Softee's your name
There's no sense squawkin' 'bout it
           You're a softee, by trade
Don't say that
           Mister Softee's your name
Don't say that

You're the softee, my friend
You're soft, soft in the head
You're a softee, I'm sure
Soft to the core
           
            You're a softee, by trade
Who you talkin' to?
            Mister Softee's your name
            You're a softee and hardly my type
Don't say that, don't say that
2. MALADIE D'AMOUR
               
(music: Coati Mundi/ lyric: August Darnell)

Everder since I wooed you
I'd a been actin' cuckoo
Underdeneath a tunnel
You'd think I was a Choo Choo!
(choo choo)
 
   Got a weakness here in my heart
   Maladie d'amour
   Got a feelin' I'm falling apart
   Maladie d'amour
 
My head is in a whirl
I'm as giddily as a little girl
Hideaiing in a treetop 
You'd thinka I was a squirrel!

   Got a weakness here in my heart
   (here in my heart)
   Maladie d'amour
   (maladie d'amour)
   Got a feelin' I'm falling apart
   (falling apart)
   Maladie d'amour
   (falling, falling, falling, falling apart)
 
                 She come and she go, she come and she go
                 She come and she go, she come and she go
                 Oh she come, she go, she come, she go
                 (just like a Duncan Yo-Yo)
                 She come, she go, she come, she go
                 (just like a Duncan Yo-Yo)
 
   Got a weakness here in my heart
   (here in my heart)
   Maladie d'amour
   (maladie d'amour)
   Got a feelin' I'm falling apart
   Maladie d'amour

People say I'm crazy
(ya ya ya ya ya ya)
But they know who made me
Blushing in a garden
(ya ya ya ya ya ya)
You'd thinka I was a daisy!
    
   Got a weakness here in my heart
   Maladie d'amour
   Got a feelin' I'm falling apart
   Maladie d'amour
 
   Ooo, I'm crazy about you boy!
   Got a feelin' I'm falling apart
   (I'm fallaling apart, fallaling apart, fallaling apart)
   Maladie d'amour
 
                 She come and she go, she come and she go
                 (just like a Duncan Yo-Yo)
                 Oh she come, she go, she come, she go
                 (just like a Duncan Yo-Yo)
                 
                 She come and she go, she come and she go
                 (just like a Duncan Yo-Yo)
                 Oh she come, she go, she come, she go
                 (just like a Duncan Yo-Yo)
 
                  Just like a Duncan Yo-Yo
                  She come and she go, she come and she go
                  Just like a Duncan Yo-Yo
                  Just like a Duncan Yo-Yo
                  Just like a Duncan Yo-Yo

Yo! Yo-Yo your Mama
Yo!
Yo! Yo-Yo your Mama

Yolanda, it's a more than lovely summer day, my love
Yolanda, let's go window shopping 'cross the bay, my love
Yolanda, we can even take my motor boat, my love
Yolanda, so wear that dress that lets your woman show, my love
 
          Sí, sí, it sounds good to me

Yolanda, Yolanda, Yolanda, Yolanda, we can go on all those crazy rides, my love
Yolanda, and then stop by my place and unwind, my love

Of course it sounds good
          But let me check if my man will let me
No, that's not necessary
          No, no, Danny say I can't go
See, see - now you say you can't go! See! Now you can't go. Now you can't care. So what's the story?

4.  OFF THE COAST OF ME
                                                                    (music and lyric: August Darnell)
 
Off the coast of me lies you
It's a cozy place in a blue lagoon
And I spend my evenings listening to
Your hoochie-coochie koochie-koochie koo!
 
Off the coast of me lies you
Basking in the sun like garden fruit
In my morning hours if I look real good
I can see you do the hula-hula-hoo
 
Hula hula hula hula
Hula-hoo
Hula hula hula
 
Off the coast of me lies you
In a waterfall of solitude
I must find a one way passage through
To the very heart and private part of you
I must get through
Cos I love you
 
I'm taking a trip off the coast of me
I'm taking a trip off the coast of me
Sing it Coconuts!
     I'm takin' a trip off the coast of me
Bye bye
     I''m takin' a trip off the coast of me
Bye bye bye bye
     I''m takin' a trip off the coast of me
Jules, let me hear some Coconuts!
     I'm taking a trip off the coast of me
Bye bye
     I''m takin' a trip off the coast of me
Bye bye bye bye 
    I''m takin' a trip off the coast of me
Finders keepers 
    I''m takin' a trip off the coast of me
Lose you weep, lose you weep, finders keepers
    I''m takin' a trip off the coast of me
I got, I got, I got to, got to get through
    I''m takin' a trip off the coast of me
I'm taking a trip, off the coast, off the coast, bye bye
    I''m takin' a trip off the coast of me
Bye bye, I'm takin' a trip 
    I''m takin' a trip off the coast of me
I'm takin' a trip, a trip, a trip, a trip
    I''m takin' a trip off the coast of me
Drip drip, blip blip, trip trip
    I''m takin' a trip off the coast of me
Off the coast, off the coast of me
    I''m takin' a trip off the coast of me
Bye bye bye bye
    I''m takin' a trip off the coast of me
Finders weepers keepers sleepers jeepers jeepers creepers
    I''m takin' a trip off the coast of me
I'm takin' a trip
    I''m takin' a trip off the coast of me
I'm takin' a trip
    I''m takin' a trip off the coast of me
Bye bye
    I''m takin' a trip off the coast of me
Bye bye bye bye

6. LILI MARLENE

(music and lyric: Hans Leip, Norbert Schultze)

Vor vor der Kaserne, vor dem großen Tor
Stand eine Laterne und steht sie noch davor
So woll'n wir da uns wiedersehen
Bei der Laterne woll'n wir steh'n

Wie einst, Lili Marlene
Wie einst, Lili Marlene

Unsrer beiden Schatten sah'n wie einer aus
Dass wir so lieb uns hatten, das sah man gleich daraus
Und alle Leute soll'n es seh'n
Wenn wir bei der Laterne steh'n

Wie einst, Lili Marlene
Wie einst, Lili Marlene
 
Schon rieft der posten sie blasen
Zapfenstreich es kann drei tage 
kosten, kamerad ich komm ja
gleich dann sagten wir
Kaufwiedersehen, wie gerne wollte
ich mit Dir gehen
 
Mit Dir Lili Marlene
Mit Dir Lili Marlene

Deine Schritte kennt sie, deinen 
ziehren Gang
alle abend brennt sie, mich
vergass sie lang
und sollte mir ein leid geschehen
wer wird bei der Laterne stehen
mit dir Lili Marlene?
 
Mit Dir Lili Marlene
Mit Dir Lili Marlene
Mit Dir Lili Marlene
Mit Dir Lili Marlene

You say you saw my love in Bogota
Oh no no, she in Havana
She got no relative in Bogota
All her people are in Cuba
 
No it couldn't be Carmela
It was some other muchacha 
And as bad as your eyes are 
I forgive the mistake
 
You say you saw my love in Bogota
(sí señor)
That you stopped and you spoke to her
(sí señor)
Well, what she doing in Bogota?
(por favor)
Oh, you promised to lie for her!
(sí señor)
 
Well, if she asked you not to speak of it
Oh then why did you tell me this?
Don't you know ignorance is bliss
And true love is blind
 
   Don't you hurt me, bro
   Shoo shoo
   Go man go!
 
la la la la la la la la la laaa
la la la la la la la laaaa
   Shoo shoo shoo shoo

If she, if she, if she, if she asked you, asked you not to speak of it
Oh then why did you tell me this?
Don't you know, don't you know ignorance is bliss
I'd rather you lied!
Lied! Lied! Lied!
   Don't hurt me!!!
 
Ay yi yi

Viste mi amor alli en Bogotá
Oh no ella en La Habana
No tiene familia en Bogotá
Su familia está allí en Cuba

Mira, no puede ser Carmela
Debe ser otra muchacha
Y como se que tu esta ciego
Yo te voy a perdonar

Viste mi amor allí en Bogotá
(sí señor)
Para hasta allí; pa hablar con ella
(sí señor)
Ella te habló de amor en Bogotá
(por favor)
Y prometiste mentir por ella.
(sí señor)

Si te pidío, no repetir lo
(oh no)
Dime por qué me lo dijiste
(oh no, no, no)
Mi amor es ignorancia ciega
(sí, sí)
Yo mas prefiero soñar
(sí, sí, señor)


If you know something I don't know
About the girl that I love so
Shut your mouth, go away
Come again some other day
 
Ay yi yi
Ay yi yi
 
If you know something I don't know
About the girl that I love so, so, so
Shut your mouth, go away
Come again some other day

No me va - Yo te quiero - sin tu amor yo me muero
No me va - Yo te quiero - sin tu amor yo me muero
 
Shoo shoo, Shoo shoo
Shoobileeooo, shoobileeooo
Shoo shoo
Shoo shoo, shoo shoo

No me va - Yo te quiero - sin tu amor yo me muero
No me va - Yo te quiero - sin tu amor yo me muero

8. CALYPSO PAN AMERICAN
                                                              (music and lyric: August Darnell/ Stony Browder Jr.)
 
     Don't stop that music!
     Don't stop that music!
     Don't stop that music!
     Don't stop that music!
     Don't stop that music!
 
When I go down to Kingston Town, Jamaica
I was turned around and hooked on the sound of the natives, oh oh
Those youngsters were jammin' right there in the street
Beating on tin cans, stomping their feet
Boy, they were lively, so double-timey!
 
     Don't stop that music, stop that music, baby
     Don't stop that music, stop that music, baby
     Don't stop that music, stop that music, baby
     Don't stop that music, stop that music, baby

Guitar in hand, I joined me a band of gypsies
I had a plan, but first I had to understand that island beat, oh oh
Do me a favor and teach me that style
Gichy, I'll make it worth your while
Boy he was lively, so double-timey!
 
     Don't stop that music, stop that music, baby
Kookookachoo
     Don't stop that music, stop that music, baby
Don't you be no fool
     Don't stop that music, stop that music, baby
Please
     Don't stop that music, stop that music, baby
Now they call me
 
       Calypso Pan American
       Calypso Pan American
I'm a, I'm a, I'm a, I'm a
       Calypso Pan American
I'm just a 
       Calypso Pan American
Ow!!

Oh oh
 
     Stop that music, stop that music, baby
Don't you be no fool
     Don't stop that music, stop that music, baby
Kookookachoo
     Don't stop that music, stop that music, baby
Kookookachoo
     Don't stop that music, stop that music, baby
Now they call me
 
       Calypso Pan American
       American American
I I
       Calypso Pan American
   
I brought the Dan back to the land of opportunity
He didn't know he could make the music and the dough simultaneously, oh oh
The hip crowd was payin' big bucks for a seat
To hear a sound over there is free
Boy I was lively, so double-timey!
Don't stop!

Kookookookookookoocachoo
 
       Calypso Pan American
       Calypso Pan American
I I I know
       Calypso Pan American
What about that, Jack?
How you like that fact?

10.   HE'S NOT SUCH A BAD GUY AFTER ALL
                       (music and lyric: August Darnell)
 
You can say whatever you want about my guy 
cos you only see one side of him
I see it all
Sure he's bad, but he's good bad
and I love him
and I'm gonna keep him
cos nobody knows better than I do
what's good for me
Huh!
 
He's not such a bad guy after all
He's not such a bad guy after all
He's not such a bad guy after all

He's not such a bad guy after all

My man is the cheatin' kind
Born to lose, he loves to lie!
But then once in a while
He'll buy me flowers and he'll shower me with big surprises!
  
He's not such a bad guy after all
no, no, no, no
He's not such a bad guy after all
one moonbeam, two moonbeam, one moonbeam, two moonbeam
He's not such a bad guy after all

He's not such a bad guy after all
one moonbeam, two moonbeam, one moonbeam, two moonbeam
 
My man is a Hercules
He loves to hurdle and beat on me!
But then I must concede
When he loves me I forget about his bruising me!

He's not such a bad guy after all
no, not such a bad guy after all
He's not such a bad guy after all
love him so, love him so, never gonna let him go

     I give him what he wants when he wants it, uuh
     I give him what he wants how he wants it, yeah
     I give him what he wants where he wants it
     I give him what he wants, how he likes it, wants it, gets it!

He's not such a bad guy after all

My man is the lazy kind
Television all day and night
But when he finds the time
He'll get dressed up and pick me up and take me for a ride

He's not such a bad guy after all

   Say Lori, why don't you just forget about that boy and find somebody new?

Hey, wait a minute... wait, wait, wait
What are you tellin' me?
Are you tellin' me I should just leave him flat?
C'mon! Forget all about him?
Forget his crew cut, his big brown eyes and his baby blue Oldsmobile convertible?
C'mon man, like he's bad but he ain't that bad!
Naw, uhuh!

He's not such a bad guy after all
no he ain't, no he ain't, no he ain't, no he ain't
He's not such a bad guy after all
no he ain't, no he ain't, no he ain't, no he ain't
 
Nope, nope, not my guy, uhuh

And I still love him so!
He's not such a bad guy after all
no he ain't, no he ain't, no ain't, not my guy
He's not
Whatever you say
He's not
He's not
Nope, no, not my guy

11. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR
(Music and lyric by August Darnell and Peter Schott)

Don’t you know I believe in you
Everything you are, I am too
Don’t you know that your dreams can come true

So put the handgun down
Turn yourself around
Get back in the corner
Scold me if you wanna
Now let’s all calm down
Wipe away the frown
Consider it a waiver
Do yourself a favor
Put the handgun down
Before you make a sound
That cannot be forgotten
And leaves you feeling rotten
Put the handgun down
Turn your life around
Do yourself a favor

I know now why you feel so blue
She was wrong to lie about you
But I never ever did believe the ruse

So put the handgun down
Turn yourself around
Get back in the corner
Scold me if you wanna
Now let’s all calm down
Wipe away the frown
Consider it a waiver
Do yourself a favor
Put the handgun down
Before you make a sound
That cannot be forgotten
And leaves you feeling rotten
Put the handgun down
Turn your life around
Do yourself a favor

Hold me, Hang tough
Believe in Love
Trust in my heart
Don’t let her break us apart

Instrumental

So put the handgun down
Turn the beat around
Get back in the sauna
Take me if you wanna
Now let’s all calm down
Wipe away the frown
Consider it a waiver
Do yourself a favor
Put the handgun down
Before you make a sound
That cannot be forgotten
And leaves you feeling rotten
Put the handgun down
Turn your life around
Do yourself a favor
12.CHECKIN' MY COLONIES
(Music and lyric by August Darnell, Dario Darnell and Lorne Ashley)

FREE FREE FREE FREE
Checkin'  my colonies
Makin' sure that they please me and my eccentricities
Collectin' my dues and fees
Even if I gotta squeeze them and make them squirm and squeal and bleed!
That's the way it's gonna be
Until they're brave enough to say
"HEY, I'm not your property, I'm not your luxury, and I just wanna be
FREE FREE
(We're better than that)
And I just wanna be
FREE FREE"
(We're better than that)

Talkin' 'bout birds and bees
Natives are there to please me and all my carnal needs!
Plantin'  my favorite seeds
Crossin' all of my t's so that they don't claim to be my progeny!
That's the way it's gonna be
Until they're brave enough to say
"HEY, I'm not your property, I'm not your cup of tea, and I just wanna be
FREE FREE
(We're better than that)
And I just wanna be
FREE FREE"
(We're better than that)

Checkin' my colonies
(We're better than that)

"And I just wanna be
FREE FREE
(We're better than that)
FREE FREE

I'm not your property and I don't wanna be!"
13.YOU DON’T KNOW ME
(Music and lyric by August Darnell and Time Vine)

Don’t even think about it
Don’t even wink about it
Don’t leave a stink about it
Don’t even, don’t even

Don’t tell a soul about it
Don’t be so cold about it
Don’t take a poll about it, about it, about it

SHUT UP! You think that you know me
SHUT UP! You think that you own me
you don’t own me

One day - Monaco
Next day - Tokyo
Monday - Panama
Tuesday - Zanzibar
Sunday - Oslo
Next day - Mexico
Friday - Mandalay
That’s the way I roll with it

Get on with it
Get on
Get on with it
Get on

Don’t write a book about it
Don’t get all shook about it
Don’t get a crook about it, about it, about it

SHUT UP! You think that you know me
SHUT UP! You think that you own me
you don’t own me
SHUT UP! You think that you made me
SHUT UP! You think that you saved me
didn’t save me

Get on with it
Get on
Get on with it
Get on

Don’t be a creep about it
Don’t lose no sleep about it
Don’t even weep about it
Don’t even, don’t even
Don’t make a show about it
Don’t lose no dough about it
Don’t get so low about it, about it, about it

SHUT UP! You think that you know me
SHUT UP! You think that you own me
you don’t own me
SHUT UP! You think that you made me
SHUT UP! You think that you saved me
didn’t save me

SHUT UP!
SHUT UP!
SHUT UP!
SHUT THE FUCK UP!!!
14. IN A PLACE LIKE THIS
(Music and lyric by August Darnell)

IN A CORNER THERE'S A BUSY BAR
BARMAN HAS A BLOODY SCAR
VERY SLEAZY, WEEZY-QUEASY

IN THE TOILET THERE'S A SMELLY FOOL
SELLING COKE AND ACTING COOL
PRETTY ICKY, AWFUL SICKLY, OOOOO

      WHAT YOU DOIN' IN A PLACE LIKE THIS?
      WHAT YOU DOIN' IN A STATE LIKE THIS?
      AND ON YOUR OWN ...
      LORD HAVE MERCY!

IN A CORNER THERE'S A POOL OF SICK
NO SURPRISE - THE AIR IS THICK
PRETTY SHITTY, WHAT A PITY

AND ON A TABLE THERE'S A TOPLESS GIRL
OFF HER TITS  SHE DOES A WHIRL
VERY DIRTY, VERY FLIRTY, OOOOOO

TELL ME 

WHAT YOU DOIN' IN A PLACE LIKE THIS?
      WHAT YOU DOIN' IN A STATE LIKE THIS?
      AND ON YOUR OWN ...
      LORD HAVE MERCY!

          YOU'RE BREAKING MY HEART
          YOU'RE FALLING APART
          AIN'T YOU GOT NO SHAME?
          YOU'RE GETTING SO LOW
          YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW 
          YOU'RE IN PAIN
          SHAME SHAME SHAME

THEY SAY THAT PRIDE WILL COME BEFORE A FALL
YOU PUT YOUR FAITH IN ALCOHOL
TAKE IT EASY, PRETTY PLEASY

THE D.J.'S PLAYING SOME CACOPHONY
THERE'S NOTHING HERE FOR YOU OR ME
WHERE'S THE MAGIC IN THE TRAGIC? OOOOOO

TELL ME

      WHAT YOU DOIN' IN A PLACE LIKE THIS?
      WHAT YOU DOIN' IN A STATE LIKE THIS?
      AND ON YOUR OWN ...
      LORD HAVE MERCY!
      WHAT YOU DOIN' IN A PLACE LIKE THIS?
      WHAT YOU DOIN' IN A STATE LIKE THIS?
      AND ALL ALONE ...
      LORD HAVE MERCY!

          YOU'RE BREAKING MY HEART
          YOU'RE FALLING APART
          AIN'T YOU GOT NO SHAME?
          YOU'RE GETTING SO LOW
          YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW 
          YOU'RE IN PAIN
          SHAME SHAME SHAME
