English Girls (Ray Dorset)
 
Well everybody's heard about California girls
The Beach Boys told that well
But there aint nobody that makes me smile
Like real life English girls
 
Those Jamaican beauties darks skin girls
They sure know just how to dance
An' West Indian women with their reggae sounds
You oughta see them shake their ass
 
CHORUS
But English girls, English girls
They know how to make me smile
English girls, English girls
They know how to make me smile
 
I've heard all about the Japanese girls
They know how to treat their man
An' Chinese ladies with their pretty little feet
Always understand
Malaysian girls with that smile on their face
No way I'd say no
An' Russian girls I can't resist when I hear them say hello
 
CHORUS
 
Well the French young ladies yeah they look so smart
You oughta see the way they dress
An' Italian women I've seen in Rome never look a mess
German girls with their big boned bodies and the shower of thick blonde hair
Swedish, Danish, Dutch, who's best, I really just don't care
 
CHORUS  
 
 
 
Everybody Needs Someone (Ray Dorset)
 
Walking through the town when the sun goes down
Looking everywhere, looking all around
Making conversation in a late night bar
Too many drinks then you donít know where you are
Wake up in your bed, donít know where youíve been
Donít remember what you done, donít remember what youíve seen
Have a strong cup of coffee just to try to get awake
Another day off work youíre gonna pay for your mistake
And you think that you know youíve gotta have someone
Youíve gotta have someone, somebody to love
 
Itís a cruel hard world when youíre liviní on your own
Youíve got no friends no one calls you on the phone
Looking in the mirror see your wrinkles getting deeper
You aint getting younger, time is gonna beat yuh
Reading all the lonely hearts club ads in every paper
Saying to yourself that youíre gonna call one later
Looking out your window, feeling all alone
And you know, everybody wants someone
Everybody wants someone, somebody to love
 
Chorus / Refrain
Everybody wants someone, somebody to love
Everybody needs someone, somebody to love
No satisfaction in a one night stand
Nothing for a woman and thereís nothing for a man
Driftiní through the night in the midnight rain
Over and over and over again
Someone, somebody to love
 
Now should you get a cat, or should you get a dog
That would lie at your feet sleeping cozy on a rug
But whoís gonna feed it when youíre out on your job
Give it water when itís thirsty, take it for a walk
You hear about religion on the television
Learn about the people who all have them a mission
Something to believe in someone that they trust
Someone to believe in, the someone that they trust
Is the Lord, and theyíve always got someone
Yeah theyíve always someone, somebody to love
