Track Name: Rockability
Instrumental

Track Name: Mission: Impossible
MISSION:IMPOSSIBLE

Killin' time - shootin' pool
with my buddies at the Sundown Saloon
Slit skirt . . . high heels
Our eyes follow her across the room
Her lips beg to be kissed
No man could resist

Mission:Impossible
Name, number, and date
She may seem out of reach
But I'm up for the chase
She won't be making it easy
I've got to have faith
Mission:Impossible

My friends - make their moves
But she's not playing by the rules of the game
She won't dance . . . plays it cool
Everything they try is shot down in flames
But she tells me with a glance
I should take a chance

Mission:Impossible
Name, number, and date
She may seem out of reach
But I'm up for the chase
She won't be making it easy
I've got to have faith
Mission:Impossible

The way she smiles at me
Promises me more
The fire in her eyes
is what I'm looking fo - or

Mission:Impossible
Name, number, and date
She may seem out of reach
But I'm up for the chase
She won't be making it easy
I've got to have faith
Mission:Impossible

Track Name: I Can't Go Home
I CAN'T GO HOME

I can't go home, 'cause the bar's still open
And I don't know when to leave
Till the music stops and the lights go up
And the girls won't dance with me
There ain't nobody waitin', and no place I've got to be
I can't go home
I can't go home

Everybody knows my reputation,
I'm always runnin' 'round
'Cause there's always something goin' on
somewhere else in town
As long as there's a good time waiting anywhere for me
I can't go home
I can't go home

I can shake a leg, I can cut a rug
I'm a certified dancin' fool
I can slow it down and hold 'em tight,
the way a woman loves to do

But I can't go home, 'cause the bar's still open
And I don't know when to leave
'Till the music stops and the lights go up
And the girls won't dance with me
There ain't nobody waitin', and no place I've got to be
I can't go home
I can't go home

I can't go home

Track Name: Pretty Face
PRETTY FACE

Early in the morning . . . late at night
The perfect time to hold you tight
We could be anyplace
I want to kiss your pretty face
Your pretty face
Your pretty face
Honey, I want to kiss your pretty face

You’ve got a way with words
– I love talkin’ to you
You always make me laugh
– you’ve got a sense of humor too

And when I flirt with you
– I like makin’ you blush
Still sometimes darlin’,
there’s nothing to discuss

Early in the morning . . . late at night
The perfect time to hold you tight
We could be anyplace
I want to kiss your pretty face
Your pretty face
Your pretty face
Honey, I want to kiss your pretty face

When we make love
– you get me feelin’ so right
You know just what to do,
to keep me more than satisfied
You take me to the stars
– you give me such a thrill
But still my favorite way
to show you how I feel

Early in the morning . . . late at night
The perfect time to hold you tight
We could be anyplace
I want to kiss your pretty face
Your pretty face
Your pretty face
Honey, I want to kiss your pretty face

Your pretty face
Your pretty face
Honey, I want to kiss your pretty face

Track Name: The Girl Gets To Me
THE GIRL GETS TO ME

She has a way of knowin’
What’s on my mind
She says a whole lot to me
With just a smile
She has this power
And it remains a mystery
Since we first met . . .
The girl gets to me

Downtown on a busy street
Or down a country road
Hangin’ out with the guys
Or by myself at home
If only in my head . . .
The girl gets to me

I’ve tried to overcome it . . .
Maintain control
But she just looks right through me
Into my soul
No use hiding . . .
She speaks to me in my dreams
Since we first met . . .
The girl gets to me

Downtown on a busy street
Or down a country road
Hangin’ out with the guys
Or by myself at home
If only in my head . . .
The girl gets to me

Downtown on a busy street
Or down a country road
Hangin’ out with the guys
Or by myself at home
If only in my head . . .
The girl gets to me

The girl gets to me . . .
The girl gets to me . . .

Track Name: Too Late
TOO LATE

I know it’s after midnight, please forgive me
Forgive me knockin’ on your door this way
I confess I’ve been out here for hours
Tryin’ to find the right words to say

I came by and saw that new car in your driveway
Thought there might be another man with you
All those times you asked me for forever
Now I know just what I have to lose

Am I too late to be your one and only?
I’ve let time slip through my hands
Am I too late, did I leave you too lonely?
Honey, you’ve been great
Sorry I made you wait
I’m ready now, I hope I’m not too late

I don’t want to live my life without you
But I’ve taken you for granted way too long
Thought I gave you everything you needed
Now I’m thinkin’ maybe I was wrong

Am I too late to be your one and only?
I’ve let time slip through my hands
Am I too late, did I leave you too lonely?
Honey, you’ve been great
Sorry I made you wait
I’m ready now, I hope I’m not too late

Am I too late to be your one and only?
I’ve let time slip through my hands
Am I too late, did I leave you too lonely?
Honey, you’ve been great
Sorry I made you wait
I’m ready now, I hope I’m not too late

I’m ready now, I hope I’m not too late

Track Name: Dinah Might
DINAH MIGHT

That girl Dinah's got a real short fuse
Like a keg of powder - she'll blow up on you
Take it from me, she's a powerful girl
But if you decide to give her a whirl

Dinah might be red hot
Take you in her arms and give you all she's got
Dinah might be cold as ice
At the flip of a coin or a roll of the dice
If you don't handle her just right
She might hurt you, Dinah might

I'm still siftin' through the debris
From back when Dinah belonged to me
Too much passion makes a love explode
And I watched our dreams go up in smoke

Dinah might be red hot
Take you in her arms and give you all she's got
Dinah might be cold as ice
At the flip of a coin or a roll of the dice
If you don't handle her just right
She might hurt you, Dinah might

There's more to that girl than what you see
She's as dangerous as a stick of TNT

Dinah might be red hot
Take you in her arms and give you all she's got
Dinah might be cold as ice
At the flip of a coin or a roll of the dice
If you don't handle her just right
She might hurt you, Dinah might

If you don't handle her just right
She might hurt you, Dinah might

Track Name: Just Because
JUST BECAUSE

Just because there's a ring on her hand
Just because she says you're her man
Don't think she belongs to you

A lot of guys might promise her better
So if you want her to love you forever,
You’d better mind your attitude

Start huggin' and kissin' anytime of the day
Tell her that you miss her when she's been away
Bring her pretty flowers - the kind that she loves
And call her on the telephone sometimes because . . .
Just because . . .
Just because . . .

Just because you don't treat her bad
Just because for so long you've had
her there . . . standing by your side

Don't ever take her for granted
Unless you wanna be empty handed
You’ll need to keep her satisfied

Start huggin' and kissin' anytime of the day
Tell her that you miss her when she's been away
Bring her pretty flowers - the kind that she loves
And call her on the telephone sometimes because . . .
Just because . . .
Just because . . .

Start huggin' and kissin' anytime of the day
Tell her that you miss her when she's been away
Bring her pretty flowers - the kind that she loves
And call her on the telephone sometimes because . . .
Just because . . .
Just because . . .

Just because . . .
Just because . . .

Track Name: Out Of The Question
OUT OF THE QUESTION

It's out of the question
It's just too much to ask
And I'm too broken hearted to pretend
I'm too busy cryin'
And living in the past
Don't ask me, I can't be just your friend

It seems like just yesterday we were in love
You told me a million times back then
That your love was strong
So can you tell me what went wrong?
Why can't we be that way again?

It's out of the question
It's just too much to ask
And I'm too broken hearted to pretend
I'm too busy cryin'
And living in the past
Don't ask me, I can't be just your friend

I won't stay around and let you see me cry
Wishing we could share just one more kiss
I can't stay here
Wondering how your feelings disappeared
I'm too close to the tenderness I miss

So I'll be movin' on
I'd rather miss you when I'm gone
Than stay and play a game of make believe
Honey it hurts too much
To be in reach, but out of touch
So I will live with memories

It's out of the question
It's just too much to ask
And I'm too broken hearted to pretend
I'm too busy cryin'
And living in the past
Don't ask me, I can't be just your friend

Don't ask me, I can't be just your friend
I can't be your friend . . .
It's out of the question

Track Name: Does Your Wife Have A Sister?
DOES YOUR WIFE HAVE A SISTER?

He jumped up from the bar to get a better view
Of the drop-dead red-head across the room
She wasn't alone and had a ring on her hand
So all he could do was ask her man

Does your wife have a sister? - And if she does
Will you introduce me to her because
I'd love to have a woman like the one you have
Man, I'd give anything to be loved like that
Tell me, mister . . .
Does your wife have a sister?

Little sis' was a blonde and she was a beaut
And she was with her husband and that was strike two
But our boy wasn't ready to give up yet
He turned to the lucky man and said

Does your wife have a sister? - And if she does
Will you introduce me to her because
I'd love to have a woman like the one you have
Man, I'd give anything to be loved like that
Tell me, mister . . .
Does your wife have a sister?

Well there turned out to be a sister three
A cute little brunette and totally free
They fell in love and got married in May
And when the guys get together they laugh and say

Does your wife have a sister? - And if she does
Will you introduce me to her because
I'd love to have a woman like the one you have
Man, I'd give anything to be loved like that
Tell me mister . . .
Does your wife have a sister?

Does your wife have a sister? - And if she does
Will you introduce me to her because
I'd love to have a woman like the one you have
Man, I'd give anything to be loved like that
I’d give anything to be loved like that
I’d give anything to be loved like that
Tell me mister . . .
Does your wife have a sister?

Track Name: I've Got To Leave
I'VE GOT TO LEAVE

I don't know what I'm gonna tell her
as I'm walkin' out that door
Can't just say “Hey babe, it's over . . .
I don't love you anymore”
'Cause she used to be my woman
and I used to be her friend
I feel about as low now
as a man has ever been

But what we had before is over
I'm glad I got to know her
And I'll do my best to hold her
in my memories . . .
but I've got to leave

I wouldn't do her any favor
by tryin' to live a lie
I've got to do what's in my heart,
it's time to say good-bye
I don't know what to tell her,
I just can't make up the words
It doesn't matter what I say,
I know it's gonna hurt

But what we had before is over
I'm glad I got to know her
And I'll do my best to hold her
in my memories . . .
but I've got to leave

Well, I'd love to run and hide
But I know that that ain't right
I'll find what it takes
To tell her face to face

I still care about that woman
and I hate to make her cry
I wish I could explain
I wish that I could tell her why
But words lose all their meaning
when I try to let her know
I feel my feelings changing
and I know it's time to go

What we had before is over
I'm glad I got to know her
And I'll do my best to hold her
in my memories . . .

What we had before is over
I'm glad I got to know her
And I'll do my best to hold her
in my memories . . .
but I've got to leave

Track Name: This Old Heart
THIS OLD HEART

This old heart is jaded by the past
I gave it away too fast a time or two
But this old heart still has love to share
It just takes someone to care to make this old heart new

Somebody's waiting . . . looking for me
If I wanna keep myself alive . . .
that's what I've gotta believe
Somebody's waiting . . . and it won't be long
Till we find each other . . .
so I'll keep holding on

'Cause this old heart spends some lonely nights
Wondering when it might find love again
This old heart needs something to do
Besides feeling blue and trying to pretend

Somebody's waiting . . . looking for me
If I wanna keep myself alive . . .
that's what I've gotta believe
Somebody's waiting . . . and it won't be long
Till we find each other . . .
so I'll keep holding on

And sooner or later there's bound to come a day
I'll find someone who makes lonely go away
Sooner or later . . . it could be tonight
I might find someone to treat me right

This old heart is jaded by the past
I gave it away too fast a time or two
But this old heart still has love to share
It just takes someone to care to make this old heart new

To make this old heart new
To make this old heart new

Track Name: Tonight Your Love
TONIGHT YOUR LOVE

Pay no mind to the words I said before
I was angry, didn't know what I was sayin'
There ain't nothin' that ya' can't make worse
If you keep playin' at these mind games you've been playin'

Tonight your love
Tonight your love
Tonight your love is miles away

You steal the covers and pretend you're asleep
It's a nasty habit and I don't know who you're foolin'
I put up with all your childish ways
But sometimes woman I swear I don't know what you're doin'

And tonight your love
Tonight your love
Tonight your love is miles away

Tonight your love
Tonight your love
Tonight your love is miles away

Make up your mind don't leave me
Hangin' with nothin' to hold on to
Make up your mind don't leave me
Hangin' with nothin' . . .

Sometime soon we're gonna have to really talk
You and me, we'll talk and we'll both listen too
'Cause I can't go on long like this ya' know
I need your love and I'm already missin' you

Tonight your love
Tonight your love
Tonight your love is miles away

Tonight your love
Tonight your love
Tonight your love is miles away

Make up your mind don't leave me
Hangin' with nothin' to hold on to
Make up your mind don't leave me
Hangin' with nothin' . . .

Track Name: Time For You To Leave
TIME FOR YOU TO LEAVE

I don't like the way you talk to me
I get ticked off 'cause you're not listening
Baby, it's just time for you to leave

When we go to bed you watch TV
You don't give me anything I need
Baby, it's just time for you to leave

I will miss you when you're gone
I'll cry – but not for very long
Can't you see, I'm tryin' to set you free

Ooh, it's time to say good-bye
It's true – we can't live a lie
Baby please, it's time for you to leave

Hey I'll even help you pack your things
Take what you want – just hand me your keys
Baby, it's just time for you to leave

I will miss you when you're gone
I'll cry – but not for very long
Can't you see, I'm tryin' to set you free

Ooh, it's time to say good-bye
It's true – we can't live a lie
Baby please, it's time for you to leave

Baby please, it's time for you to leave

Track Name: She's Livin' In Texas
SHE'S LIVIN' IN TEXAS

I gotta say, I love my wife
And I think that she loves me
But the smallest things can make us fight
Just ask her – she'll disagree

Still, we're so much better now
We used to argue all night long
No-one thought we'd work it out
I'm so glad we proved them wrong

We truly live in wedded bliss
We've learned to peacefully co-exist
Since we discovered what the secret is to marriage
She gets along so much better with me
When she's livin' in Texas and I'm in Tennessee

Some think we can't go on this way
But after all, what do they know?
I really wouldn't change a thing
'Cause I know love needs room to grow

We truly live in wedded bliss
We've learned to peacefully co-exist
Since we discovered what the secret is to marriage
She gets along so much better with me
When she's livin' in Texas and I'm in Tennessee

We finally found the best solution
I live in Nashville – she's in Houston

We truly live in wedded bliss
We've learned to peacefully co-exist
Since we discovered what the secret is to marriage
She gets along so much better with me
When she's livin' in Texas and I'm in Tennessee

She gets along so much better with me
When she's livin' in Texas and I'm in Tennessee
