Track Name: Leave Him and I'll Leave Her
You were more radiant than a sunrise
the seas all envied the depths of your eyes
I became yours from the moment we met
and on winning your love my heart became set
But you weren’t free to give yourself to me
My finger, too, was ringed; it compelled me to sing –
Leave him, leave him, leave him now.
Leave him, leave him and I’ll leave her.
Track Name: This Night
A
I finished my drinks and leaned into the dusk.
The fading sun tried hard to crush
E A
my mood but failed.
I slouched down Broadway; I hadn’t a plan
I could barely stand so I started to dance
E A
Oh whoa! Where will I go?
I stumbled through a door, locked eyes with a girl
olive skin, green eyes framed in dark curls.
My, my! How my head swirled.
The room was crowded and the lights were dim.
Her smiled reached out and took the strength from my limbs.
Oh no! I won’t think of you.
D A
Because I’m feeling like this night belongs to me.
D A
Anything can happen ‘cause I feel so free!
D A F#m
Yes, I’m feeling like this night belongs to me, yeah yeah.
E A
Oh whoa! Where will I go?
Yes!

Her car was in the alley, a little black hatchback.
We steamed the windows, “Stray Slack” for a soundtrack.
Dear Lord, I’m in love.
She said “there’s a party at the Econo Lodge!”
I replied “that’s strange, but who am I to judge?
Oh whoa! Baby, let’s go!”
She started the car, threw it into reverse,
it sputtered and she muttered my favorite curse,
but we were on our way.
We pulled into the lot at a quarter of 12,
delved into the mvotel it sweltered like hell.
Oh no! You’re not on my mind.
D A
Because I’m feeling like this night belongs to me.
D A
Anything can happen ‘cause I feel so free!
D A F#m
Yes, I’m feeling like this night belongs to me, yeah yeah.
E A
Oh whoa! Where will I go?
Yes!

Never had I seen so much PVC, so many
whips and chains and strange looks directed at me.
“I’m not sure about this,” I thought.
She handed me a drink. I took it in one draught.
She paused for a second, then hurled the wickedest laugh
I’d ever seen or heard.
Then all of a sudden, all eyes were on me,
my head started spinning, I wanted to flee
but I was too dizzy.
The next thing I knew I was being led on a chain.
I was light as a dewclaw, I was feeling no pain.
Oh whoa! Now I’m missing you.
