"Greatest Hits Volume 1" by Phil Vassar, which consists of 7 songs.
Girl you sure look pretty there standin' in the doorway in the sunset light
Maybe I read you wrong thinkin' I could be your Mr. Right
I was puttin' my heart and soul on the line
Said you needed some time, just a little more time to make up your mind
Well it's been long enough
Time is up
Bye bye love, I'll catch you later
Got a lead foot down on my accelerator and the rearview mirror torn off
I ain't never lookin' back. And that's a fact.
I was lousy at math, a failed historian
Carlene was the valedictorian
And I was the quarter back in the back of classes
She was the whiz kid in the horned rim glasses
It's been a long time since I've been around
Since I stepped foot on my old stomping ground
I ended up by the old school yard
And this red head pulls up in a blue sports car
And said, "I bet you don't remember, I guess it's been forever."
I'll Take That As A Yes
You like a dozen wine red roses
Candlelight on porcelain set tables
And that's fine, I'll go out of my way
For you anytime
That's right baby
The fire's warm
So you take off your sweater
Now it's my turn and I'll do you one better
That's the game we both like to play
In A Real Love
Well, I was 18, makin' minimum wage,
With a Letterman jacket and a Chevrolet.
I thought I was cool, yeah, I ruled the school.
You were Cum Laude with the strawberry lips.
You had the whole world danglin' at your fingertips,
Your senior year, an' I was your daddy's worst fear.
We ran off on graduation night.
Thought a couple of left-hand rings would make everything all right.
With a little bit a-live, little bit a-learn,
Just Another Day In Paradise
(Craig Wiseman/Phil Vassar)
The kids screaming, phone ringing
Dog barking at the mailman bringing
That stack of bills - overdue
Good morning baby, how are you?
Got a half hour, quick shower
Take a drink of milk but the milk's gone sour
My funny face makes you laugh
Twist the top on and I put it back
There goes the washing machine
(Phil Vassar, Charlie Black, Tommy Rocco)
(beer opening and laughs)
(That's right) Winter sure was cold and miserable
Cooped up, shut down, baby it was pitiful
Anyhow, it's over now
We owe to ourselves to have a little fun
The pace car's pacin' now the green flag's wavin'
That's When I Love You
When I hear you stop and laugh out loud
When you're fallin' fast asleep
When you're in the middle of a crowd
When you're lyin' close to me
When I hear you softly say my name
When you're high and when you're low
When you don't need me to explain
'Cause you already know
When you smile that way
I know, every night and day
