Jackie Wilson Said
it was reet petite
I kind of love you
Yes it knocks me off my feet
Let it all come down
Oh let it all come down
And you know I'm so wired up
I don't need any more tea in my cup
Let it all come down
Oh let it all come down
Now we catch this
Toodle langa langa Toodle langa lang
Toodle langa langa Toodle langa lang
I'm in heaven, I'm in heaven
I'm in heaven when you smile
And when you walk across the street
It makes my heart go boom boom boom
Let is all come down
And every time I stop to think about it
Well little child you simply make my day
Let it all come down
Oh let it all come down
Toodle langa langa Toodle langa lang
Toodle langa langa Toodle langa lang
I'm in heaven, I'm in heaven
I'm in heaven when you smile

Let's Make This Precious
Pure, this must be, it has to be,
Pure let's make this pure,
(Do you mean it?) Yes I do,
(Then let's sing it) Certainly, but
First bare your hearts and cleanse your souls
(And then?) Let's try and make this precious, like this,
Let's make this precious.
We're striving over here
(Ever nearer?) I think so
(Visions clearer) of course, of course,
But still we must forsake all to win
(All temptations?) everything
(for salvation?) now you're talking
Then let this apply to all we do
(And then?) Our striving will guide us
And somehow I think we'll win.
Let's make this precious,
First let's hear somebody sing me a record
That cries pure and true.
Not those guitars, they're too noisy and crude,
The kind that convinces refuses to leave,
There's no need to turn it up,
If it's pure I'll feel it from here.
Let's make this precious, (I think we probably will)
Let's make this precious, (I think we probably will)
