HOW SWEET IT IS

There was a time
When I would sit and say
That I'll never
Fall in love again
Now I know (Darling now I know)
Yes I know

How sweet it is
To be in love

Since I found you
My whole life has changed
And I'm so happy
To love you more each day
Yes I know (Darling yes I know)
Yes I know

How sweet it is
To be in love

Let me tell you people
What I have to say
Go find your true love
And say the same someday
Say that you know (Darling that you know)
That's how I know

How sweet it is
To be in love

SHAME AND SCANDAL

(chorus)
*Woe! Misery!
Shame and scandal in the family
Woe! Misery!
Shame and scandal in the family!

In Jamaica there was a family
With much confusion as you will see
There was a momma and a papa and a boy who was grown
Who wanted to marry have a wife of his own
He found a young girl, who suited him nice
He went to his papa to ask his advice
The papa said: "Son, I have to say no,
That girl is your sister, but your momma don't know"
(chorus)

So the weeks went by and the summer came down
And soon the best cook in the island he found
He went to his papa, to make a day
The papa turned to him and to him he did say
"You can't marry this girl, I have to say no
That girl is your sister, but your momma don't know"
(chorus)

He went to his momma and covered his head
He told his momma what his papa had said
His momma she laughed, she said: "Go man, go
Your daddy ain't your daddy, but your daddy don't know"
(chorus)

*Woe, is me" and "Who is real?" are just a few of the other many variations of this line.

SOON YOU'LL BE GONE

(chorus)
Soon you'll be gone
And I'll be all alone
Soon you'll be gone (Yes you will)
And I'll be all alone

You give a little light, unto my soul
You keep me warm baby when I get cold
And with all these things that you do to me
I'll never forget I could've set you free
(chorus)

You show me right, when I go wrong
I can't be weak because you keep me strong
And now because I have fooled around
You had to leave and then you let me down
(chorus)

I guess that's how, it's got to be
I know your little heart is full of misery
Well I still hope and pray
That you will find another love someday

By then you'll be gone
And I'll be all alone
By then you'll be gone (Yes you will)
And I'll be all alone
