1. Black Swampy Water
Oh yeah
Uh back in the wood
Where it's good
And the days are yellow
Well I saw me a child
She was wild
Like a lady going all out

Dark as the night
She was ripe
For a little conversation
So I pulled her right in
And she said
She had some imagination

Black swampy water
That's where I caught her
Black swampy water
Black swampy water

We didn't speak
For a week
Got tangled up in her hair
So we lay in the grass
What a gas
You can't know that you were there

So then I let it all go
And the show
Was like blowing up a freight train
And round the world I would go
Like jumping on a jet plane

Black swampy water
That's where I caught her
Black swampy water
Uh, what I taught her, yeah

Oh, back in the wood
Where it's good
And the days are yellow
Gotta saw me a child
She was wild
Like a lady going all out

I've been
Black swampy water
All right
That's where I caught her, oh
Black swampy water
Oh all the things that I taught her
Yes, again

Black swampy water, my my
Where I saw here, oh
Black swampy water
What I did when I caught her, oh yeah yeah
2. Prentice Wood
Watching all the flowers grow
Soon they'll be around
I love to watch the English countryside
Watch the bird with purple wings
Doesn't make a sound
He's waiting for the wind to take a ride

Ain't it looking fine
I wish that it were mine
Oh, feels good
Oh, feels good
In Prentice Wood, yeah

Ah
Men are coming out to play
Hit the ball around
Jump the net and change the sides again, yeah
Feeling foolish splash your name
Look what we've found
Don't you even use another friend

Ain't it looking fine
I wish that it were mine
Oh, feels good
Oh, feels good

Come with me lady, give us a smile
Try to believe that it's real

Watching all the flowers grow
Soon you'll be around
Feeling all the magic in the air
Seems the sun is only mine
Never going down
Love is in the wind it's everywhere

Ain't it lookin fine
Open up the wine
Oh, feels good
Oh, feels good
In Prntice Wood
Yeah
Oh
3. When She Smiles
Well ain't she lovely
Whe she's blue
And ain't she lovely
Looking at you

And I'm not one for speaking out loud
But you can't miss her face in a crowd
When she smiles
When she smiles, yeah

She makes me happy
When she's high
She'd even make you happy
Just waving bye-bye

And like some things way up in the air
She's got more than seems to be there
When she smiles
When she smiles, yeah

Well, hey you with your head in the noose
Look like you swallowed your shoes
Don't be called a fool
Ain't you really cool
Won't you even give it a try
My, my, my

Well, hey you with your head in the noose
Look like you swallowed your shoes
Don't be called a fool
Ain't you really cool
Won't you even give it a try
Won't you even give it a try
Won't you even give it a try

She's lovely
When she's blue
She looks so damn lovely, yeah
Looking at you

My baby makes me happy
She's lovely
I'm happy
When she's waving bye-bye
Makes you feel good
She's sure
Everytime I see I'm high
Hey, my my
4. Good Time Music
Are there hard days ahead
Should we put it away
For a rainy day
Is my moon out tonight
Should I wake up today
I think I've just gotta say

Life's too complicated
To do much more creating
Waiting for the man to take us down
And you can't have no money
The cloudy days aren't sunny
And all the women that you know
Look just like men
Ah but it's smiling time again
And everybody wins
Good time music Is coming back today

Will the sun shine today
Should we keep it alive
Or lock it all up inside
Can we all find a way
To be happy again
When's it all gonna end

Life's too complicated
To do much more creating
Waiting for the man to take us down
And you can't have no money
The cloudy days aren't sunny
And all the women that you know
Look just like me
Ah but it's smiling time again
And everybody wins
'Cause good time music is coming back
'Cause good time music is coming back
'Cause good time music is coming back today

Oh
Good time music's coming back
Good time music's getting back
Good time music's coming back to stay

Anytime of day
See her on her way
Straight down Liberty Road
Slinky like a cat
Trying to catch a rat

Stop the river flow

6. Shotgun Boogie
Someone in the front of the shop needed a bar
Heard the boogie-woogie from the back of the car
Rooting, tooting, shooting by the man with the horn
Wailing since the day he was born

To get me on the scheme you gotta keep me alive
Jitter-bugging baby doing nothing but jive
Padded in the shoulders but your front is all wrong
You got me coming can you keep it on going

I wanna reach you baby
Got to put the phone down
And let it ring in my ear
Maybe in the morning
We can see if something's dawning
Am I making myself very clear

Oh, hands come alive
Move from side to side
Hands come alive
Shotgun boogie make it low down
All right, oh yeah
All right, oh yeah
Ooh, ooh, baby

Oh, hands come alive
Move from side to side
Hands come alive
Do that boogie jive

Oh, hands come alive
Move from side to side
Hands come alive
Baby, shotgun boogie make it low down

Hands come alive
Move from side to side
Hands come alive
Do the shotgun boogie make it low down

Hands come alive
Move from side to side
Hands come alive
The shotgun boogie make it low down

Hands come alive
Move from side to side
Hands come alive
Do the shotgun boogie make it low down
Low down, low down

7. Wonderworld
Touch me, I feel
Take me, I'm real
Sail away, into the sun
I'm everyone

Wake me, I dream
I'm what I seem
Drift away, into the night
I'm the light

I am the sky
Help you to fly
Catch your wind
It's love I bring
I'm everything

I am the sea
Always to be
Drift away, into the night
I'm the light

I'm a fire
Burning higher
Trying to burn the sun
But don't you know
The rules just won't apply
Who am I

Wake me, I dream
Now I'm what I seem
So sail away, into the sun
'Cause I'm everyone, yeah

Touch me, I feel
Take me, I'm real
Drift away, into the night
I'm the light
