1.I'll Never Fall In Love Again (修改)

What do you get when you fall in love?
A guy with a pin to burst your bubble.
That's what you get for all your trouble.
I'll never fall in love again.
I'll never fall in love again.

What do you get when you kiss a guy?
You get enough germs to catch pneumonia.
After you do he'll never phone ya.
I'll never fall in love again.
I'll never fall in love again.

Don't tell me what is all about
'cause I've been there and I'm glad I'm out,
out of the chains, the chains that bind you.
That is why I'm here to remind you.

What do you get when you fall in love?
更多更详尽歌词 在 ※ Mojim.com 魔镜歌词网
You only get lies and pain and sorrow.
So, for at least, until tomorrow
I'll never fall in love again.
I'll never fall in love again.

Don't tell me what is all about
'cause I've been there and I'm glad I'm out,
out of the chains, the chains that bind you.
That is why I'm here to remind you.

What do you get when you give your heart?
You get it all broken up and battered.
That's what you get, a heart that's shattered.
I'll never fall in love again
I'll never fall in love again.




2.Ode To Billy Joe (修改)

作词:Bobbie Gentry
作曲:Bobbie Gentry

It was the third of June, another sleepy, dusty Delta day
I was out choppin' cotton and my brother was balin' hay
And at dinner time we stopped and walked back to the house to eat
And Mama hollered out the back door 'y'all remember to wipe your feet'
And then she said 'I got some news this mornin' from Choctaw Ridge'
'Today Billy Joe MacAllister jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge'

'n' Papa said to Mama as he passed around the blackeyed peas
'Well Billy Joe never had a lick of sense, pass the biscuits, please'
'There's five more acres in the lower forty I've got to plow'
'n' Mama said it was shame about Billy Joe, anyhow
Seems like nothin' ever comes to no good up on Choctaw Ridge
And now Billy Joe MacAllister's jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge

'n' Brother said he recollected when he and Tom and Billie Joe
Put a frog down my back at the Carroll County picture show
And wasn't I talkin' to him after church last Sunday night?

'I'll have another piece-a apple pie, you know it don't seem right'
'I saw him at the sawmill yesterday on Choctaw Ridge'
'And now ya tell me Billie Joe's jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge'

'n' Mama said to me 'Child, what's happened to your appetite?'
'I've been cookin' all morning and you haven't touched a single bite'
'That nice young preacher, Brother Taylor, dropped by today'
'Said he'd be pleased to have dinner on Sunday, oh, by the way'
'He said he saw a girl that looked a lot like you up on Choctaw Ridge'
'And she and Billy Joe was throwing somethin' off the Tallahatchie Bridge'

A year has come 'n' gone since we heard the news 'bout Billy Joe
'n' Brother married Becky Thompson, they bought a store in Tupelo
There was a virus going 'round, Papa caught it and he died last Spring
And now Mama doesn't seem to wanna do much of anything
And me, I spend a lot of time pickin' flowers up on Choctaw Ridge
And drop them into the muddy water off the Tallahatchie Bridge

3.Ode To Billie Joe (修改)

It was the third of June
Another sleepy, dusty
I was out chopping cotton
And my brother was bailing hay
And at dinner time we stopped and walked back to the house to eat
And Mama hollered at the back door
'Y'all remember to wipe your feet'
Then she said
'I got some news this mornin' from Choctaw Ridge
Today Billy Joe McAllister
Jumped off the Talahachee Bridge'




4.Louisiana Man (修改)

(Doug Kershaw)

At first Mom and Poppa called the little girl a lady
They raised her on the banks of a river bed

A house boat tied to a big tall tree
A home for my poppa and my momma and me

The clock strikes three Poppa jumps to his fee
Already Moma's cookin' Poppa somethin' to eat
At half past Poppa he's a ready to go, he jumps in
his pirogue headed down the bayou

He's got fishin' line strung across the 'Lousiana River
Got to catch a big fish for us to eat
He's settin' his traps catchin' anything he can
Gotta make a livin' he's a 'Lousiana man,gotta make
a livin' he's a 'Lousiana man

Muskrat hides hangin' by the dozen, even got a little bitty
muskrat cousin
Got 'em out dryin' in the hot hot sun, tomorrow Poppa's
gone turn em into money

They call Moma Rita and my Daddy Jack,my little baby
brother on the floor that's Mac,Rhett and Lynn are the
family twins,big brother Eddie's on the bayou fishin'

On the river floats Poppa's great big boat

That's how me and Poppa get in to town
It takes every bit of a night and day to even reach
a place where the people stay

Oh I can hardly wait until tomorrow comes around
That's the day my Poppa takes the furs to town
Poppa done promised me that I could go
He'd even let me see a cowboy show

I saw the cowboys and Indians for the first time then
I told my Poppa 'gotta go again' but Poppa says'Hon
we got lines to run,we'll have to come again,cause theres
work to be done'

He's got fishin' line strung across the 'Lousiana River
Got a catch a big fish for us to eat
He's settin' his traps catchin' anything he can
Gotta make a livin' he's a' Lousiana man
Gotta make a livin' he's a' Lousiana man-an

Poppa done promised me that I could go
He'd even let me see the cowboy show

I saw the cowboys and indians for the first time then
I told my Poppa 'Gotta go again' but Poppa said 'Hon,
we got lines to run,we'll have to come again cause theres
work to be done




5.Ace Insurance Man (修改)

作词:Bobbie Gentry

Two men sittin' in straight back chairs
Feet propped up on the railin'
Sittin' in front of the country store
Discussin' how the crops were failin'

About that time a car drove by
With an Ace Insurance bumper sticker
Well that must be the man been courtin' Abell
He's somethin' of a city slicker
(Ah, you can tell just from the way he's drivin' that car)

Do you reckon he's goin' up to see Abell
You know her daddy went to Maben this day
And her mommas been in Arkansas with her ailin' pa
Ain't nobody home that way
(Ha ha, 'cept Abell)

Now, I don't mean nothing by what I say
But if you won't say it, I can
She ain't got no bid'ness alone
With that Ace Insurance man
(Why there's just no tellin' what might happen)

People ought to keep an eye on they're kids
You remember 'bout Abby Mcguinness
Why'it, lik'ta kill'ed her ma when she found out about it
Course I know it ain't none of my bid'ness
But uh, well, if it was me, if it was me

It might be too late and it would be a pity
Better call up the sheriff in Calhoun city
And have the preacher organize a 'vestigating committee
To see what's going on
(Yes, sir, and we'd better hurry)

Tearing down the road in a pickup truck
With Bentley out taking the lead
Followed by a tractor and a half lame mule
Dust flyin' as they picked up speed

Faces beaming goodness and their jaw's set hard
Good people just doin' what's right
And off in the distance was Abell's house
And there wasn't a soul in sight
Aw, I could'a told you
(Oh, I just knew it)

Now the gravel was flying as he turned the bend
And screeched to a grinding halt
They went through the fence, into the flower bed
And hit pa's first-prize hog in the head
And left half a dozen mama's chickens for dead
But it wasn't nobody's fault

Oh, look at Harvey's prize hog
And all of them darlin' old grown bad trusty chickens
(We got more important things to tend to, boy)
I wonder if they're covered?

Committee bounded on the front porch
To meet the enemy face to face
But Abell yelled at 'em through the screen door
'Y'all messed up my daddy's place'

But in her hand she waved a policy
Sayin' with a Mona Lisa grin
'Well, y'all timed that one just about right
'Cause Ace done struck again'




6.Fancy (1970) (修改)

作词:Bobbie Gentry

Well, I remember it all very well lookin' back
It was the summer that I turned eighteen
We lived in a one-room, run down shack
On the outskirts of New Orleans

We didn't have money for food or rent
To say the least we was hard-pressed
When momma spent every last penny we had
To buy me a dancin' dress

Well, momma washed and combed and curled my hair
Then she painted my eyes and lips
Then I stepped into the satin dancin' dress
It had a split in the side, clean up to my hips

It was red, velvet-trimmed and it fit me good
And standin' back from the lookin' glass
Was a woman
Where a half grown kid had stood

She said, 'Here's your last chance, Fancy, don't let me down
Here's your last chance, Fancy, don't let me down
God forgive me for what I do
But if you want out, girl, it's up to you
Now get on out, you better start sleepin' uptown'

Momma dabbed a little bit of perfume
On my neck and she kissed my cheek
Then I saw the tears welling up
In her troubled eyes as she started to speak

She looked at our pitiful shack and then
She looked at me and took a ragged breath
She said, ‽Your Pa's runned off and I'm real sick
And the baby's gonna starve to death”

She handed me a heart-shaped locket that said
'To thine own self be true'
And I shivered as I watched a roach crawl across
The toe of my high-healed shoe

It sounded like somebody else was talkin'
Askin', 'Momma what do I do?'
She said, 'Just be nice to the gentlemen, Fancy
They'll be nice to you'

She said, 'Here's your last chance, Fancy, don't let me down
Here's your last chance, Fancy, don't let me down
God forgive me for what I do
But if you want out, girl, it's up to you
Now don't let me down
Now get on out, you better start sleepin' uptown'

That was the last time I saw my momma
When I left that rickety shack
The welfare people came and took the baby
Momma died and I ain't been back

But the wheels of fate had started to turn
And for me there was no other way out
It wasn't very long after that I knew exactly
What my momma was talkin' 'bout

I knew what I had to do
Then I made myself this solemn vow
I's gonna to be a lady someday
Though I didn't know when or how

But I couldn't see spendin' the rest of my life
With my head hung down in shame
You know I mighta been born just plain white trash
But Fancy was my name

She said, 'Here's your last chance, Fancy, don't let me down
Here's your last chance, Fancy, don't let me down
God forgive me for what I do
But if you want out, girl, it's up to you
Now get on out, you better start sleepin' uptown'

Wasn't long after that a benevolent man
Took me in off the streets
One week later I was pourin' his tea
In a five roomed penthouse suite

Since then I've charmed a king, a congressman
And an occasional aristocrat
And I got me an elegant Georgia mansion
And a New York townhouse flat
Now I ain't done bad

Now in this world there's a lot of self-righteous
Hypocrites who call me bad
They criticize momma for turning me out
No matter how little we had

But I haven't had to worry 'bout nothin'
Now for nigh on fifteen years
But I can still hear the desperation
In my poor momma's voice ringin' in my ears

'Here's your last chance, Fancy, don't let me down
Oh, here's your last chance, Fancy, don't let me down
God forgive me for what I do
But if you want out, girl, it's up to you
Now get on out, you better start sleepin' uptown'

7.Harper Valley (修改)

作词:Tom Hall

I want to tell you all the story
'Bout the Harper Valley widow wife
Who had a teenage daughter
Who attended Harper Valley Junior High

Well, her daughter came home one afternoon
And didn't even stop to play
She said, 'Mama, I got a note here
From the Harper Valley PTA'

Well, the note said
'Mrs. Johnson, you're a wearing your dresses way too high'
It's reported you've been
Drinking and a running round with men and goin' wild

We don't believe you ought to be a
Bringing up your little girl this way
It was signed by the secretary
Harper Valley PTA

Well, it happened that the PTA
Was gonna meet that very afternoon
They were sure surprised when
Mrs. Johnson wore her miniskirt into the room

And then she walked up to the blackboard
I still recall the words she had to say
She said, 'I'd like to address this meeting of the
Harper Valley PTA'

Well, there's Bobby Taylor sittin' there
And seven times he's asked me for a date
And Mrs. Taylor sure seems to use
A lotta ice whenever he's away

And Mr. Baker, can you tell us
Why your secretary had to leave this town?
And shouldn't widow Jones be told to keep
Her window shades all pulled completely down

Well, Mr. Harper couldn't be here
'Cause he stayed too long at Kelly's Bar again
And if you smell Shirley Thompson's breath
You'll find she's had a little nip of gin

And then you have the nerve to tell me
You think that as a mother I'm not fit
Well, this is just a little Payton Place
And you're all Harper Valley hypocrites

No, I wouldn't put you on
Because it really did it happened just this way
The day my mama socked it to the

Harper Valley PTA
The day my mama socked it to the
Harper Valley PTA




8.All I Have To Do Is Dream (修改)

Bobbie Gentry, Glen Campbell
Dream, dream, dream, dream
Dream, dream, dream, dream

When I want you in my arms
When I want you and all your charms
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Dream, dream, dream, dream

When I feel blue in the night
And I need you to hold me tight
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Dream

I can make you mine, taste your lips of wine
Anytime night or day
Only trouble is, gee whiz
I'm dreamin' my life away

I need you so that I could die

10.Slow Cookin' (修改)

Slow cookin'...
Let me add a little spice to your life,
Serve it up and make it feel real nice
Slow, fancy lookin'...
There are things you can't learn from a book
Come into the kitchen and I'll show you how I cook

(Chorus)
When you want your love to last, cook it
Don't wanna burn it up by cooking too fast
You gotta cook real slow...

...Cookin'
Careful! Don't you burn yourself, the fire is hot
I'm cooking up something that you're going to like a lot

Slow, fancy lookin'...
Come on now, the flame is getting strong
I can't hold out any longer

(Chorus)
Set it to the right degree, cook it
Good lovin' don't need no recipe
You gotta cook real slow...

...Cookin'
Slow, fancy looking
Slow cookin'
