    There once was a sad little goblin
    Who had a broken broom
    When he went anywhere, it would wobble in the air
    And his heart would fill with gloom
    He tried so hard to fix it every night
    But he just couldn't get it working right

    The Wobblin' goblin with the broken broom
    Could never fly too high
    For right after take-off
    Another piece would break off
    And soon he would be danglin' in the sky!

    "You've gotta have heart
    All you really need is heart
    When the odds are sayin' you'll never win
    That's when the grin should start

    You've gotta have hope
    Mustn't sit around and mope
    Nothin's half as bad as it may appear
    Wait'll next year and hope

    When your luck is battin' zero
    Get your chin up off the floor
    Mister you can be a hero
    You can open any door,
    there's nothin' to it but to do it"

    Where have all the good men gone
    And where are all the gods
    Where's the streetwise Hercules
    To fight the rising odds
    Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed
    Late at night I toss and I turn
    And I dream of what I need

    I need a hero
    I'm holding out for a hero 'till the end of the night
    He's gotta be strong, and he's gotta be fast
    And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
    I need a hero
    I'm holding out for a hero 'till the morning light
    He's gotta be sure, and it's gotta be soon
    And he's gotta be larger than life
    Larger than life

    There was a lot of rocking going on that night
    Cruising time for the young bright lights
    Just down past the gasworks, by the meat factory door
    The five lamp boys were coming on strong
    The Saturday night city beat had already started
    And the, the pulse of the corner boys just sprang into action
    And young Billy watched it all under the yellow street light
    And said "tonight of all nights, there's gonna be a fight"
    Billy don't like it living here in this town
    He says the traps have been sprung long before he was born
    He says "hope bites the dust behind all the closed doors"
    And pus and grime ooze from its scab crusted sores
    There's screaming and crying in the high-rise blocks"
    It's a rat trap Billy, but you're already caught
    And you can make it if you wanna or you need it bad enough
    You're young and good-looking and you're acting kind of tough
    Anyway it's Saturday night time to see what's going down
    Put on the bright suit Billy, head for the right side of town
    It's only 8 o'clock but you're already bored
    You don't know what it is but, there's got to be more
    You'd better find a way out, hey kick down that door
    It's a rat trap and you've been caught
    In this town Billy says "everybody's trying to tell you what to do"
    In this town Billy says "everybody says you gotta follow rules"
    You walk up to those traffic lights
    You switch from your left to right
    You push in that button and that button comes alight
    And hits you
    "Walk, don't walk
    Walk, don't walk
    Talk, don't talk
    Talk, don't talk"
    "Walk, don't walk
    Walk, don't walk
    Talk, don't talk
    Talk, don't talk"
    Hey Billy take a walk, take a walk, take a walk
    Billy take a walk, take a walk, take a walk
    Billy take a walk, take a walk, take a walk
    Hey Billy, take a walk with me
    Take a walk that leads to me
    Sweet high school blues
    Oh little Judy's trying to watch "top of the pops"
    But mum and dad are fighting don't they ever stop
    She takes off her coat and walks down into the street
    It's cold on that road, but it's got that home beat
    Deep down in her pockets she finds 50p
    Hey is that any way for a young girl to be?
    I'm gonna get out of school work in some factory
    Work all the hours God gave me get myself a little easy money
    Now, now, now na na
    Her mind's made up, she walks down the road
    Her hands in her pockets, coat buttoned 'gainst the cold
    She finds Billy down at the Italian cafe
    And when he's drunk it's hard to understand what Billy says
    But then he mumbles in his coffee and he suddenly roars
    "It's a rat trap Judy; and we've been caught"
    Rat trap, you've been caught
    In a rat trap, you've been caught
    In a rat trap, you've been caught
    In a rat trap, you've been caught
    In a rat trap, you've been caught
    In a rat trap, you've been caught
    In a rat trap, you've been caught
    In a rat trap, you've been caught (the boys are 'round and they're lookin' for a mate)
    In a rat trap, you've been caught
    In a rat trap, you've been caught
    In a rat trap, you've been caught
    In a rat trap, you've been caught

    Saturday in the park
    I think it was the Fourth of July
    Saturday in the park
    I think it was the Fourth of July
    People dancing, people laughing
    A man selling ice cream
    Singing Italian songs
    Eh Cumpari, ci vo sunari
    Can you dig it? (Yes, I can)
    And I've been waiting such a long time
    For Saturday
    Another day in the park
    I think it was the Fourth of July
    Another day in the park
    I think it was the Fourth of July
    People talking, really smiling
    A man playing guitar (play the song)
    (Play the song, play on)
    And singing for us all
    Will you help him change the world?
    Can you dig it? (Yes, I can)
    And I've been waiting such a long time
    For today

    "Spring was never waiting for us, girl
    It ran one step ahead
    As we followed in the dance

    Between the parted pages and were pressed
    In love's hot fevered iron
    Like a striped pair of pants

    MacArthur's Park is melting in the dark
    All the sweet green icing flowing down
    Someone left the cake out in the rain
    I don't think that I can take it
    'Cause it took so long to bake it
    And I'll never have that recipe again
    Oh, no!"

    Oh! Darling, please believe me
    I'll never do you no harm
    Believe me when I tell you
    I'll never do you no harm

    Oh! Darling, if you leave me
    I'll never make it alone
    Believe me when I beg you, ooh
    Don't ever leave me alone

    "Good morning, heartache, you ole gloomy sight
    Good morning, heartache, thought we'd said goodbye last night
    I turned and tossed until it seemed you had gone
    But here you are with the dawn
    Wish I'd forget you
    But you're here to stay
    It seems I met you
    When my love went away
    Now everyday I start by saying to you
    Good morning, heartache, what's new?

    Stop haunting me now
    Can't shake you, no how
    Just leave me alone
    I've got those Monday blues
    Straight through Sunday blues

    Good morning, heartache, here we go again
    Good morning, hearache, you're the one who knew me when
    Might as well get used to you hangin around
    Good morning, heartache, sit down"

    Well, I woke up Sunday morning
    With no way to hold my head that didn't hurt
    And the beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad
    So I had one more for dessert

    Then I fumbled through my closet for my clothes
    And found my cleanest dirty shirt
    And I shaved my face and combed my hair
    And stumbled down the stairs to meet the day

    I'd smoked my brain the night before on
    Cigarettes and songs that I'd been pickin'
    But I lit my first and watched a small kid
    Cussin' at a can that he was kicking

    Then I crossed the empty street
    And caught the Sunday smell of someone fryin' chicken
    And it took me back to somethin'
    That I'd lost somehow, somewhere along the way

    There's a little ditty
    They're singing in the city
    Especially when they've been
    On the gin
    Or the beer
    If you've got the patience,
    Your own imaginations
    Will tell you just exactly what you want to hear...

    Oom-pah-pah! Oom-pah-pah!
    That's how it goes,
    Oom-pah-pah! Oom-pah-pah!
    Ev'ryone knows
    They all suppose what they want to suppose
    When they hear...oom-pah-pah!!

    Mister Percy Snodgrass
    Would often have the odd glass --
    But never when he thought anybody could see.
    Secretly he'd buy it,
    And drink it on the quiet,
    And dream he was an Earl
    With a girl on each knee!

    Hot town, summer in the city
    Back of my neck gettin' dirt and gritty
    Been down, isn't it a pity?
    Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city
    All around people looking half-dead
    Kept walking down the sidewalk, hotter than a matchhead

    But at night it's a different world
    Go out and find a girl
    Come on, come on and dance all night
    Despite the heat it's gonna be alright
    And baby, don't you know it's a pity
    The days can't be like the nights
    In the summer in the city
    In the summer in the city

    Say you don't know me or recognize my face
    Say you don't care who goes to that kind of place
    Knee deep in the hoopla, sinking in your fight
    Too many runaways eating up the night

    Marconi plays the mambo, listen to the radio
    Don't you remember?
    We built this city
    We built this city on rock and roll

    We built this city
    We built this city on rock and roll

    "When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie
    That's amore
    When the world seems to shine like you've had too much wine
    That's amore
    Bells will ring ting-a-ling-a-ling, ting-a-ling-a-ling
    And you'll sing "Vita bella"
    Hearts will play tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay
    Like a gay tarantella

    When the stars make you drool just like a pasta e fasule
    That's amore
    When you dance down the street with a cloud at your feet
    You're in love
    When you walk in a dream but you know you're not dreaming, signore
    Scusa mi, but you see, back in old Napoli
    That's amore"

    While the sun hangs in the sky and the desert has sand
    While the waves crash in the sea and meet the land
    While there's a wind and the stars and the rainbow
    Till the mountains crumble into the plain
    Oh yes we'll keep on tryin'
    Tread that fine line
    Oh we'll keep on tryin yeah
    Just passing our time
    While we live according to race, colour or creed
    While we rule by blind madness and pure greed
    Our lives dictated by tradition, superstition, false religion
    Through the aeons, and on and on
    Oh yes we'll keep on tryin'
    We'll tread that fine line
    Oh oh we'll keep on tryin'
    Till the end of time
    Till the end of time
