Track Name: It's A Long Way Home
It’s a long, long way from here to the streets of my home town
It seems it’s getting further ev’ry day
And sunset finds me here down at the station
Wond’ring why I ever came away

Ev’ry night I feel so downright lonely
Joe the barman sets his watch by me
Ev’ry morning after finds me weeping
For dear old friends back home where I should be

And it’s a long, long way from here to the streets of Melbourne
It seems it’s getting further ev’ry day
So sunset finds me here down at the station
Wond’ring why I ever came away

So many times I’ve promised I’ll make it home someday
But it could be the death of me might be the only way

If I could only scrape the fare together
I’d board that hometown train without delay
I’d be so glad to roam those hometown alleys
I’d set down roots never more to stray

It’s a long way from here to the streets of Melbourne
It seems it’s getting further ev’ry day
So sunset finds me here down at the station
Wond’ring why I ever came away
Track Name: Highway Annie
Highway Annie lives for speed,
Speed and her machine are all she needs
Mess with Annie boy you're gonna bleed

Highway Annie lives for thrills
Got no special man she never will
Settling down to Annie's standing still

That's Highway Annie
Highway Annie
Highway Annie
Highway Queen,
Fastest woman on wheels you’ve ever seen.


Annie don't stay long in any town
Being too well known brings her down,
She’s happy when her wheels are turning round

That's Highway Annie
Highway Annie
Highway Annie
Highway Queen,
Fastest woman on wheels you’ve ever seen.

Highway Annie's tough as any man
Highway Annie says she's tougher than
She does stuff no tough tow-trucker can

Boy you'd better leave Annie alone
Annie don't go hanging off no mobile phone
She leaves a trail of broken hearts - and broken bones

That's Highway Annie
Highway Annie
Highway Annie
Highway Queen,
Fastest woman on wheels you’ve ever seen.

Highway Annie's had her share of spills
But she'll keep riding until
They put flying down the highway in a pill

That's Highway Annie
Highway Annie
Highway Annie
Highway Queen,
Fastest woman on wheels you’ve ever seen.

Highway Annie lives for speed
Speed and her machine are all she needs
But mess with Annie boy you're gonna bleed

That's Highway Annie
Highway Annie
Highway Annie
Highway Queen,
Fastest woman on wheels you’ve ever seen.
Track Name: Wondering What On Earth I'm Gonna Do
I’m sitting here thinking about you.
You said you’d leave now that’s come true and
I’m wondering what on earth I’m gonna do.

I’m standing in the rain
Wondering if I’m gonna love again.
I wonder what an earth I’m gonna do.

Should’ve seen this comin’ that’s for sure.
Won’t see you round here no more and
I’m wondering what on earth I’m gonna do.

Thought I knew you, well knew you so well, ha, ha.
Goes to show you can never tell and
I’m wondering what on earth I’m gonna do.

Too late to promise now; you won’t listen anyhow.
I gotta try to put this all behind me.
Wrong place, wrong time, wrong move.
Never knew how much I’d lose and
I’m wondering what an earth I’m gonna do.

Comes a time to face the truth
Nothing else is any use but
I’m wondering what an earth I’m gonna do-oo-oo.

I’m standing in the rain
Wondering if I’ll ever love again.
Yeah, I’m wondering what an earth I’m gonna do.

Too late to promise now
You won’t listen anyhow.
Gotta try to put this all behind me.
Wrong time, wrong place, wrong move.
Never knew how much I’d lose and
I’m wondering what an earth I’m gonna do.
Oh, I’m wondering what on earth I’m gonna do.
Well, I’m wondering what on earth I’m gonna do.
Track Name: A Little Bit Crazy
I’m a little bit crazy, you know it’s true
Crazy things I’ve done and didn’t do
I’m a little bit crazy but what can I do?
When I’m so crazy in love with you

You could tell me to go now, I’d be on my way,
But that’s something I never hear you say
We’ll never by happy as long as we stay
Someday we’ll get crazy and run away?

Oh, you’re crazy to be here while you’re with that violent man
If he saw you with me he’d never understand
But when you’re with me, oh what can I do?
I’m so crazy in love with you.

He doesn’t love you and he treats you cruel
Puts down your friends, makes you the fool
I know scares you, that’s why you stay
Well, I’ll be waiting when you get away

Oh, you’re crazy to be here while you’re with that violent man
If he saw you with me he’d never understand
But when you’re with me what can I do?
I’m so crazy in love with you

Well, now you’ve left him and set yourself free
There’s a whole new world you have to see
Our time is over, that’s how it must be
One day I’ll be happy you once loved me

I’m a little bit crazy, you know it’s true
Crazy things I’ve done and didn’t do
Love can be crazy but I know it’s true
There was nothing crazy about loving you
There’s nothing crazy about loving you
There’s nothing crazy about loving you
Track Name: One Man Dog (Baby, I'm a)
Baby, I’m a one man dog
Baby, I’m a one man dog
I know that you could please me
But baby don’t you tease me
‘Cos Baby, I’m a one man dog

Baby, I’m a one man dog
Baby, I’m a one man dog
Oh, sure I’d love to kiss and hold you
But Baby like I told you
Baby, I’m a one man dog

Some men go out every night of the week with a different girl
They say they’re free
But I’m the kind who loves just one
Their way’s not my cup of tea

Baby, I’m a one man dog
Baby, I’m a one man dog
You mean no harm that’s plain to see
Bud don’t you waste your charms on me
‘Cos Baby, I’m a one man dog

Some folks go out every night of the week with a different girl
They say they’re free
But I’m the one who loves just one
Their way’s not my cup of tea
Baby, I’m a one man dog
Baby, I’m a one man dog
I know that you could please me
But Baby, don’t you tease me
Like I said, I’m a one man dog

Baby, I’m a one man dog
Baby, I’m a one man dog
You know that you mean no harm to me
But don’t you waste your charms on me
‘Cos Baby, I’m a one man
A one man
Baby, I’m a one man dog
Track Name: Hey, Get Out Of My Life!
Hey, get real
Get lost
Hey, get out of my life
Get real
Get lost
Hey, get out of my life
I was better off without you
You and all of your strife

Well, I had a little drink about an hour ago
It really makes no diff’rence but I thought you should know.
I thought about a lot of things
You were number one
Now here’s what I should-a said before we begun.

That’s right
Get real
Hey, get out of my life
Get real
Get lost
Hey, get out of my life
I was better off without you
You and all of your lies

I should have let you go that first time I met you
But you held a fascination for me and I couldn’t let you
Now that seems a hundred long years ago
Now I’ve made up my mind, Baby
You got to go.

That’s right
Get lost
Hey, get out of my life
Get real
Get lost
Hey, get out of my life
I was better off without you
You and all of your strife

Well, I used to think I loved you - Boy! I was blind
Now the only way I want to see you’s from behind.

That’s right
Get real
Get out of my life
Get real
Get lost
Hey, get out of my life
I was better off without you
You and all of your lies

Oh, another little thing I thought I could mention
I was happy when I you now but now I’m full of tension
I open my mouth just to get shot down in flames
Now here’s my last word, Baby: I’m done with playing games.

That’s right
Get real
Hey, get out of my life
Get real
Oh, get lost
Hey, get out of my life
I was better off without you
You and all of your lies
I was better off without you
You and all of your lies
I was better off without you
You and all of your lies
Track Name: Little Larissa May
LITTLE LARISSA MAY

Larissa May isn’t tall. She’s kind’a chunky, kind’a small
But ev’rybody has a ball with little Larissa May

Larissa has an eye for men; she has them once but not again.
She loves some women as much as men that little Larissa May

But she tells me on the sly she’s not happy and she whispers why:
She’s never found a decent guy, little Larissa May

Doctors, truckies, judges, too; T.V. stars well one or two
For all I know she’s had you, too, little Larissa May

Larissa tells me, winks her eye, she hasn’t found her special guy
But she’ll keep searching low and high, our little Larissa May

She says one day she’s gonna settle down, find her guy, move out of town
Maybe wear a wedding gown, little Larissa May, that little Larissa May

Rough diamond, heart of gold, I swear Larissa won’t grow old.
Too full of love if truth be told, that little Larissa May

Now love keeps time, it isn’t late, but I hope it doesn’t make her wait
For someone who’ll appreciate, our little Larissa May

Larissa tells me, winks her eye, she’s still not found that special guy
But she’ll keep searching low and high, our little Larissa May

Loves keeps time, it isn’t late, but I hope it doesn’t make her wait
For someone who’ll appreciate, our little Larissa May,
Little Larissa May, our little Larissa May.
Track Name: How Many Times?
HOW MANY TIMES?

How many times will you say we’ll part? How many times just to break my heart?
How many times will you treat me cruel? How many times will I be your fool?
How many times before your man is gone?

How many nights must I wait in vain? How many times must I take this pain?
How many times will I come back again? How many times do you think remain?
Yeah, how many days before your man is gone?

Now I can take the good with the bad, the sweet with the sour too,
But no matter what I say, nothing gets through to you. Woe now,

How many ways can you twist the knife? How many times will you mess up my life?
How many times will you treat me bad? How many times till you drive me mad?
Yeah, how many times before your man is gone?

I know you had your way to long, in this man’s eyes you could do no wrong
But Darling, I’m warning you

How many ways can you twist the knife? How many times will you mess up my life?
How many times must you treat me bad? How many times before you drive me mad?
How many times before your man is gone?
How many times before your man is gone?
How many times before your man is gone?
