Be My Friend Tonight
I threw a party. nobody came.
I bought all the tickets. they cancelled the game.
I give you my picture. it didn't fit your frame
Be my friend tonight
Be my friend tonight. be my friend tonight.
I'll sleep on the couch. you can leave on that light.
Well, I won't do nothing wrong till you say it's right
Come on honey, be my friend tonight
You may live alone and close your eyes
Some folks do
You may dream a dream that's twice your size
All night through
When the morning comes who's to tell your dreams to
Only love, love only, only love
Slow Boat To China
Let's take a slow boat to china. leave from south carolina
Let's take our time and go the long way
On a junk boat to thailand with your hand in mine hand
I sure hope we got something to say
Well, this old boat's go no sail so won't you please hold our mail-
Thanks anyway pal but the suez canal -
Ain't our style
Let's take a slow boat to china and maybe we'll find a
In an appalachian, greyhound station
She sits there waiting, in a family way
"goodbye brother, tell mom I love her
Tell all the others, I'll write someday"
From an teenage lover, to an unwed mother
Kept undercover, like some bad dream
While unwed fathers, they can't be bothered
They run like water, through a mountain stream
