Thunderball

Sunday, 01 March 2015 13:02 Written by

He always runs while others walk
He acts while other men just talk
He looks at this world and wants it all
So he strikes like Thunderball.

He knows the meaning of success
His needs are more so he gives less
They call him the winner who takes all
And he strikes like Thunderball.

Any woman he wants he'll get
He will break any heart without regret.

His days of asking are all gone
His fight goes on and on and on
But he thinks that the fight is worth it all
So he strikes like Thunderball.

John Barry

The Knack

Sunday, 01 March 2015 13:02 Written by

You can say you love her
when planning your attack.
But don't let her catch you
That's the Knack

When you play the lover
and scratch her pretty back,
don't let her scratch you, boy
That's the Knack

A man chases lots of girls
and maybe catches one or two
But when you've got the Knack
the girls chase you

When you need a woman,
there's plenty in the pack.
But when they need you, boy
that's the Knack.

A man chases lots of girls
and maybe catches one or two
But when you've got the Knack
the girls chase you

When you need a woman
there's plenty in the pack
But when they need you, boy
that's the Knack

Music by John Barry
Lyrics by Leslie Bricusse

Goldfinger

Sunday, 01 March 2015 13:01 Written by

Goldfinger
He's the man, the man with the Midas touch
A spider's touch
Such a cold finger beckons you to enter his web of sin
But don't go in

Golden words he will pour in your ear
But his lies can't disguise what you fear
For a golden girl knows when he's kissed her
It's the kiss of death from Mister Goldfinger
Pretty girl beware of this heart of gold
This heart is cold

Golden words he will pour in your ear
But his lies can't disguise what you fear
For a golden girl knows when he's kissed her
It's the kiss of death from Mister Goldfinger
Pretty girl beware of this heart of gold
This heart is cold

He loves only gold. Only gold
He loves gold. He loves only gold
Only gold
He loves gold

It's legal

Sunday, 01 March 2015 13:00 Written by

Darling, hold me close to you
There aint a thing that they can do
It's legal
It's legal

When you look at me that way
It's dangerous but strange to say
It's legal
It's legal

I won't be wicked again
I'll never be bad no more
Just think of the things that we can do
Without even breaking the law

Oh darling, love me, never fear
We're definitely in the clear
It's legal
It's legal

I won't be wicked again
I'll never be bad no more
Just think of the things that we can do
Without even breaking the law

Oh darling, love me, never fear
We're definitely in the clear
It's legal
It's legal

From the movie 'Beat Girl' 1960

Made You

Sunday, 01 March 2015 12:59 Written by

I saw you sitting there so cool
Like you just come home from school
Looking such a pretty sight
Like a stick of dynamite
Sitting on a coffee bar stool

You're a gasser that's a fact and I never can relax until I've made you

I feel such a crazy clown
You're the biggest thing in town
Come on honey isn't fair
Never getting anywhere
How do I melt you down

You're a gasser that's a fact and I never can relax until I've made you

I'm not giving up the chase
I don't want to lose this case
Every time I make a play
Baby you just run away
I never make first basev

You're a gasser that's a fact and I never can relax until I've made you

John Barry
Sung by Adam Faith

The Beat Girl Song

Sunday, 01 March 2015 12:59 Written by

She's nearly always here
Digs all the modern gear
Cool like a lager beer
Beat Girl

Tries anything for kicks
Lose her with the swinging hips
Makes with the pretty lips
Beat Girl

(Speaking)

"That's the Beat girl feeding the coins
into the jukebox,long black stockings and no
make-up. Big, big wheel setting up the coffee pot
she makes like she's not over concerned about
this extravagant attention. Keeps giving me the
look like I'm supposed to rate this chick high or something."

Clouds on the chicken run
Goes but it ain't no fun
Not 'less you doin' a ton
Beat Girl

Drives in an old sedan
Tries all the way she can
Jives like the crazy man
Beat Girl

I Did What You Told Me

Sunday, 01 March 2015 12:49 Written by

well I did just what you told me
you told me to forget
today some other baby
just as though we'd never met

well I did what you told me
well I did what you told me
I can't forget
I'm crying yet
over you

Well I threw away your photo
Just like you told me to
I put your letters in the fire
and got mine back from you

well I did what you told me
Ooh babe, just what you told me
I can't forget, Honey
I'm crying over you

What's going on baby? (unclear)

Well I still go to the dance hall
I listen to the noise
I try to tell myself I'm having fun
with the boys (unclear)

well I did what you told me
Ooh I did just what you told me
I can't forget
I'm crying yet
over you

Oh baby, can't forget, Honey
I'm just crying for you
