I Only Feel Like Sleeping   
 

You seem to think that I enjoy running after that ball 
Like I’ve got nothing better to do 
You seem to think that I enjoy diggin’ all kinds of holes 
Well to be honest I do it for you 
I only feel like sleeping 
I only feel like sleeping 
most of the time  
You seem to think that I enjoy jumping into the sea 
Like I’ve got nothing better to do 
You seem to think that I enjoy chasing cats into trees 
Well to be honest I do it for you 
I only feel like sleeping 
most of the time  
I’ve got a proposition for you 
Why don’t you go and get that ball yourself 
Guess you don’t like it,  neither do I 
I’ve got a proposition for you 
Why don’t you get out of that lazy chair 
Guess you don’t  like it 
Neither do I  

 

You Never Worry  
 

You never worry, ’bout what they think

You never hurry, and you don’t drink 
You’re so relaxed, you never even seem to care about your hair  
You’re never grumpy, you’re never mean

You have never made a public scene 
You are just happy, you enjoy e-ve-ry day that you’re able to play

You act on impulse that’s the only thing you do / Oh how I wish I was a bit more like you  
You never look back or ahead / You don’t dwell on things that have been said 
You don’t feel underestimated or unseen / You’ve got great self-esteem  
You act on impulse that’s the only thing you do / Oh how I wish I was a bit more like you  
‘Cause you don’t worry, ‘bout what they think / You never hurry, and you don’t drink 
You’re so relaxed, you never even seem to care/ about your hair 
It always looks nice,  to be fair  

 

Crazy  
 

They tell me I’m crazy for loving you 
They tell me I’m crazy you know  
that they can’t help it 
Can’t understand it no nohohoho 
You’re the love of my life and I love you so  
They say you’re peculiar

Your ears are odd 
Like that is what matters the most  
But they can’t help it 
Can’t understand it no nohohoho 
You’re the love of my life and I love you so  
You’re not handsome or wealthy 
You make a lot of noise 
But to me you are beautiful 
You are my favorite boy  
They tell me I’m crazy for loving you 
They tell me I’m crazy you know  
but they can’t help it 
Can’t understand it no nohohoho 
You’re the love of my life and I love you so  

 

Just Let Me Sleep  
 

Just let me sleep 
The day has only just begun, don’t weep 
I promise you, your time will come 
We’ll go to the beach, we’ll walk through the park 
We’ll swim in the lake until it gets dark 
But honey, please let me sleep right now  
Just let me sleep 
The day has only just begun, don’t weep 
I promise you, your time will come 
We will leave the house and walk to the mall 
We’ll buy loads of food and get you a ball 
But honey, please let me sleep right now  
It’s not like I am asking the impossible from you 
So baby stop looking so blue  

 

Don’t Mention The Ball  
 

Don’t mention the ball 
It causes way too much excitement 
Ball 
Oops 
You’ve said it 
Don’t mention the ball 
It causes way too much excitement 
Ball 
Oops 
You’ve said it  
Now you’re on for hours full of throwing fun 
So put your boots on 
And get down 
To the beach  
And from now on 
Don’t mention the ball 
Aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh 
Don’t mention the ball  
It’s better for us all  

'Cause  it never bores him 
He’s  easy to please 
But sometimes I’d like some peace 
and quiet 
No,  it never bores him 
He’s  easy to please 
But sometimes I’d like some peace 
and quiet., so…  

Don’t mention the ball 

 

Raincoat    
 

So you wander why I’m always sleeping, when it’s raining outside 
And you don’t get that when you call me I am always trying to hide 
You are waiting for me with my fancy raincoat ready at hand 
But I would rather die than put that on / As you’ll understand  
I’m waiting for the sun to shine again  
Until then I’ll just continue sleeping, when it’s raining outside 
‘Cause you don’t get that when you call me I am always trying to hide 
You are waiting for me with my fancy raincoat ready at hand 
But I would rather die than put that on / As you’ll understand  
I’m waiting for the sun to shine again my friend 
‘till then 
I will stick to my routine of sleeping 
When it’s raining outside

 

My Beautiful You
 

Listen now, there is no one like you, nobody cares for me the way you do 
You have taught me how to live and laugh a little more, exactly like you do  
You are so wonderful 
You are so magical 
You are so beautiful 
My beautiful you  
Please, don’t ever leave my side again, the world is so much nicer now you’re here 
I will give you anything you want, just promise me you’ll never disappear  
You are so wonderful 
You are so magical 
You are so beautiful 
My beautiful you  
I wouldn’t force you to stay no, not I 
You’re free to go but you know it would break my heart 
If you do cause you’re part of my life and I cannot survive without you nothing’s right 
Listen now, there is no one like you, nobody cares for me the way you do 
You have taught me how to live and laugh a little more, exactly like you do  
You are so wonderful 
You are so magical 
You are so beautiful 
My beautiful you  

 

Maybe My Baby  
 

Maybe 
My baby  
You’d like to come home with me maybe my baby today if it suits you I’m willing to wait 
And otherwise within a day  
Baby 
My baby  
I know that you’re busy, important, your diary filled to the brim so I don’t mind you’re late 
Just see for yourself, any day   -  because  
I’m not the one who makes the rules here, that is clear 
I am only pleading softly hoping you will hear me  
And maybe 
My baby  
You’d like to come home with me maybe my baby today if it suits you I’m willing to wait

Boy  
 

You were lying in the corner of the room 
Trying to hide 
Like  you’re not worth a mention 
You were ready to dissolve into thin air 
And you succeeded nobody paid attention to you  
Boy you are so beautiful 
Oh  boy you are so beautiful 
To me  
When you  look around you just a little more 
You will discover 
You too are needed dearly 
Cause I recognize the kindness of your mind 
And I am grateful, because my friend I nearly missed you 
Boy, you are so beautiful 
Yes boy, you are so beautiful 
To me  
Please don’t say you don’t believe in fairy tales 
Neither do I 
Just get up and walk into your life  
Please don’t say you don’t believe in fairy tales oooooh 
Just get up and walk into your life  
You were lying in the corner of the room 
Trying to hide 
Like  you’re not worth a mention 
You were ready to dissolve into thin air 
And you succeeded nobody paid attention to you  
Boy you are so beautiful 
Yes  boy you are so beautiful 
To me 
 
No Words Needed  

 

You cannot talk 
nobody taught you how to speak 
You’ve got no words to tell me how you feel 
But still, I understand you better than most people though 
It’s funny, oh I know  
You don’t do chit chat, 
whisper secrets in my ear 
Cannot repeat a story that you’ve heard 
But still, I understand you better than most people though 
It’s funny, but it’s so  
that you tell me stories with your eyes, I know 
Exactly what you try to show me  
You cannot talk 
nobody taught you how to speak 
You’ve got no words to tell me how you feel 
But still, I understand you better than most people that I know 
It’s funny, but it’s so 
It’s so 
no words needed, no, no.  

 

Let’s Go To The Park   
 

Let’s go to the park 
Though it’s rather dark 
Let’s chase rabbits, none of us can see 
It’s such fun to be out with me  
Let’s go to the park 
Though it’s rather dark 
We could easily play hide and seek 
Ain’t it fun to be out with me  
Don’t be afraid I’ll get lost, 
disappear 
That’s just not something I do 
Even in darkness, the night black as coal 
I’ll find my way back to you  
Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo 
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah  
Let’s go to the park 
Though it’s rather dark 
Let’s chase rabbits, none of us can see 
It’s such fun to be out with me  
Don’t be afraid I’ll get lost, 
disappear 
That’s just not something I do 
Even in darkness, the night black as coal 
I’ll find my way back to you  
Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo 
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah  
Let’s go to the park   

 

Movies  
 

I just don’t get why you are standing in the hallway with the key in your hand 
‘cause you forgot to put my leash on, and now you’re leaving I just don’t understand  
You told me I’m your best friend, but you seem to have lied 
‘cause otherwise, you wouldn’t leave me here tonight  
You say you’re going to the movies, it sounds nice there, why don’t you take me along 
It’s much more fun to go together, but you don’t listen, you rather go alone  
You told me I’m your best friend, but you seem to have lied 
‘cause otherwise, you wouldn’t leave me here tonight  
You’ve never left me before, why are you walking out that door  
But when you get back at midnight, I won’t be angry,  I won’t be sad or blue 
I’ll just be happy and excited, without resentment I’ll be all over you  
‘Cause you are still my best friend, no matter what you do 
But just make sure that in the future, you’ll be taking me with you 
Yeah just make sure that in the future, you’ll be taking me with you  

 

Cookie Jar 
 
I’m a big boy, you keep telling me 
Big enough to stay alone 
So you’re going out without taking me 
I am supposed to guard the home  
Don’t you know that it’s not very wise to leave me 
alone 
with the cookie jar  
I’m a big boy, according to you 
So I need to eat a bunch 
All this guarding work makes me hungry, 
so I’m arranging my own lunch  
Don’t you know, that it’s not very wise to leave me 
Alone 
with the cookie jar  
You’ll be proud of me, when you arrive at home, you were right all along 
I’m a big boy, I can stay home alone  

 

Rain  
 

Why are you crying and lying behind that chair 
Why are you hiding you know I will find you there 
Are you afraid of the rain little boy 
Please don’t be scared anymore  
Why won’t you go out and run in the park tonight 
Why do you look like in your life just nothing’s right 
Are you afraid of the rain little boy 
Please don’t be scared anymore  
Feel all the drops on your head 
It’s not as bad as you thought 
Feel all the drops on your head and enjoy 
The rain is your friend in the end little boy  
So why are you crying and lying behind that chair 
Why are you hiding you know I will find you there 
Don’t be afraid of the rain little boy 
Please don’t be scared anymore 
Don’t be afraid of the rain little boy 
Please don’t be scared anymore  

 

You Came Along  
 

You came along when I was lonely and confused 
You came and knew somehow exactly what to do 
You came, I called you by your name 
and everything just changed, the day that I met you  
You came, stood by my side according to your plan 
You came, and soon enough you made me smile again 
You came, I called you by your name 
And nothing stayed the same, the day that I met you  
You didn’t do much more 
Than being just yourself 
there was no obligation (too) to be someone else but you   
You came along when I was lonely and confused 
You came and knew somehow exactly what to do 
You came, I called you by your name 
And everything just changed, the day that I met you  
You came, stood by my side according to your plan 
You came, and soon enough you made me smile again 
You came, I called you by your name 
And nothing stayed the same, the day that I met you 
You came, I called you by your name 
And nothing stayed the same, the day that I met you  

 

Stupid   
I say stupid things all the time I can’t help it / the words just roll out of my head 
Most people ignore me / but you just adore me / you still want to lie in my bed  
You think I’m great / although I am the biggest loser in the world / you’re still my girl 
I do stupid things all the time I can’t help it / I even make grown-up men cry 
Most people don’t like me / but you stay beside me / you still want to give it a try  
You think I’m great / although I am the biggest loser in the world / you’re still my girl  
Oooooo don’t ever leave me if you doooooo my heart and my soul  
will both break in two, I couldn’t go through     
I can’t live without you 
I say stupid things all the time I can’t help it / the words just roll out of my head 
Most people ignore me / but you just adore me / you still want to lie in my bed  
You think I’m great / although I am the biggest loser in the world / you’re still my girl  
Oooooo don’t ever leave me if you doooooo my heart and my soul  
will both break in two, I couldn’t go through  /  I can’t live without you  

 

Quiet  
Don’t you tell me to be quiet 
When I bark you can be sure there is a reason for it 
Don’t you tell me to be quiet 
Something’s very wrong, you know there is no doubt about it  
No no no no no 
No no no no no 
No no no no no 
No no no no  
Don’t hold me back, just let me go  
Don’t you tell me to be quiet 
When I bark you can be sure there is a reason for it 
Don’t you tell me to be quiet 
Something’s very wrong, you know there is no doubt about it  
No no no no no 
No no no no no 
No no no no no 
No no no no  
Don’t hold me back, just let me go  
I’m a guarding dog I guard the house that is my job 
Don’t you think that I can do it 
If you do just leave me to it  
Don’t you tell me to be quiet 
When I bark you can be sure there is a reason for it 
Don’t you tell me to be quiet 
Something’s very wrong, you know there is no doubt about it  
No no no no no 
No no no no no 
No no no no no 
No no no no  
Don’t hold me back, just let me go  

 

Sad Little Song  
 

Let’s sing a sad little song 
For all those people 
Who do not know what they’re missing 
I sing a sad little song 
For they don’t know  
Living without you is impossible, unbearable to me 
Let’s sing a sad little song 
Let’s sing a sad little song
