Yellow Gloves - In The Snow (Ray Dorset)
 
A long long time ago in a land so far away
I met a girl so wonderful, we cruised the milky way
We kissed walked on the beach as the sun slipped out of reach
She wore a pair of Yellow Gloves as she caressed my cheek
 
Chorus
 
In the snow in the snow it was ten degrees below
She wore a pair of Yellow Gloves
She lost them in the snow
In the snow in the snow it was ten degrees below
She wore a pair of Yellow Gloves
She lost them in the snow
 
 
Summer came and went and the air was cold and fresh
The frosty trees the icy seas a wind from the North West
As snow fell all around we strolled by a frozen lake
Went back to our tiny house and made love until late
 
Chorus
 
We spoke about the past sipping Cognac by the fire
We laughed a lot we smiled a lot
Desire desire desire
Into the cold moonlight, my darling braved the night
To find those Yellow Gloves she lost but never did survive
 
Chorus
 
 
You Better Leave That Whisky Alone (Ray Dorset)
 
Well I don't know what to do about my Mummy,
'Cos she's been on the bottle all day long,
I don't know what to do about my Mummy,
'Cos she's been on the bottle all day long,
I called the doctor 'round this morning, said I give you warning,
She'd better leave that whisky alone.
 
Well now Daddy went and left us last summer,
That's when Mummy took that bottle off the shelf,
I found her on the floor, crying out for more,
She don't know what to do with herself,
I called the doctor 'round this morning, said I give you warning,
She'd better leave that whisky alone.
 
Well now Daddy went and left us last summer,
That's when Mummy took to drinking all day long,
She started on the wheat things, and went on to the sweet things,
Now she's drinking something that's real strong,
I called the doctor 'round this morning, said I give you warning,
She'd better leave that whisky alone.
 
Well, you better leave that whisky alone,
Well, she'd better leave that whisky, better leave that whisky,
Better leave that whisky alone,
I called the doctor 'round this morning, said I give you warning,
She'd better leave that whisky alone.
 
 
You Can Get It If You Want It  (Ray Dorset)
 
 
If you've seen me in the streets baby
Driving a white caddy
Drop head white balls I parked it by the alley
Eight track blasting out the latest from the big charts
Don't get mad don't you think?
 
CHORUS
You can get it if you want it
 
Sharp shirt sharp suit diamonds on my fingers
Shone shoes no blues, cologne from Paris lingers
Money roll so big the bank man blinking
Don't get mad don't you think
 
I bin to the West coast first class on a jumbo
Touch down picked up Lincoln it's a Limmo
Porter takes the baggage treats me like a king
Don't get mad don't you think
 
I aint no sinner if I go out to dinner
Don't stay thinner just cos I'm a winner
Got all the credit see you in your dreams
Don't get mad don't you think
 
 
You Don't Have To Be In The Army To Fight In The War (Ray Dorset)
 
When your girlfriend asks you 'round to her house and you meet her folks
and they say that your hair's too long and you're not their kind of bloke
they grab you by the collar and they throw you through the door:
You don't have to be in the army to fight in the war
 
Well, you're working very hard to get promotion in your job
but arrive late on morning just because you mist the bus
the foreman say "you're fired, 'cause you punctuality spoor"
You don't have to be in the army to fight in the war
 
Then you go into a hotel to get put up for the night
and they say that you can't stay there just because your shirt aint white
you're tired and you hungry and you cannot walk no more
You don't have to be in the army to fight in the war
 
Ain't no money, ain't no woman ain't no roof above your head
so you lay down in the park and you wish that you were dead
the fuzz says you are trespassing and kicks you in the jaw
You don't have to be in the army to fight in the war
 
The fuzz says you are trespassing and kicks you in the jaw
You don't have to be in the army to fight in the war
 
You don't have to be in the army to fight in the war
You don't have to be in the army to fight in the war
You don't have to be ...........etc. fade out.
