What am I but a workin' fool. I'm just a workin' fool.

ONE LAST SAD EMBRACE

VERSE I

žWhat a beautiful weddingÓ I heard someone say.

žThe bride was so lovely on her special day.Ó

But the part of the wedding that nobody knew

My lonely heart was breaking in two.

VERSE II

Now the reception's crowded with family and friends.

With the congratulations we've come to extend.

I'll be greeting the one that I still love so.

One last sad embrace - then forever I'll let her go.

She walked down the aisle right out of my life.

I'm dying inside but I can't let her know.

One last sad embrace - then forever I'll let her go.

Now the dancing begins as the band starts to play.

A tune for the bride and the groom's wedding day.

So play them a fast one then play them one slow.

One last sad embrace - then forever I'll let her go.

LOVING YOU DOES CRAZY THINGS TO ME

By Mike McCollum

VERSE I:

Please forgive me if I wake you with a phone call late at night,

If I'm knocking on your door too frequently.

If we're walkin' and I try some real smooth talking I may not seem to bright.

It's just that loving you does crazy things to me.

VERSE II:

When we're together, I just can't seem to be my self at all.

I'm so nervous when I'm in your company.

If I seem aloof or just a goof with not much on the ball.

Loving you does crazy things to me.

CHORUS:

Loving you does crazy things to me.

The man here that you see is not the man that I can be.

Why keep it quiet. Why deny it when it's plain to see.

Loving you does crazy things to me.

Loving you does crazy things to me.

BRIDGE:

Why can't I be me who is this guy I turn in to.

When I try to make you see that I'm the only one for you.

VERSE III:

For your attention I never know what I may do or say.

Not to mention I'm confused as I can be.

Although as a rule I don't act a fool I'm more foolish everyday.

Loving you does crazy things to me.

CHORUS:

Loving you does crazy things to me.

The man here that you see is not the man that I can be.

Why keep it quiet. Why deny it when it's plain to see.

Loving you does crazy things to me.

Loving you does crazy things to me.

TAG:

Why keep it quiet. Why deny it when it's plain to see.

Loving you does crazy things to me.

She makes the atmosphere bright and clear. Pretty little weather girl.

THERE'S JUST THE TWO OF US
(Me and my Broken Heart)

By Mike McCollum

VERSE I:

There by the window we share a lonely sky as each star appears bright and cold.

We wish we may and we wish we might have just one dream come true tonight.

CHORUS:

That's nothing new with us. It's all to do with us. We may never be apart.

It's sad but true of us. There's just the two of us. Me and my broken heart.

Me and my broken heart.

VERSE II:

We'll take a taxi cab for a night of fun just like two old friends alone.

We'll take in a show and before the night is done find a café - a table for one.

CHORUS:

That's nothing new with us. It's all to do with us. We may never be apart.

It's sad but true of us. There's just the two of us. Me and my broken heart.

BRIDGE:

How long the years? I can't remember. How many tears invaded our chamber?

Leaving a murmur of loss and surrender we've withered before our time.

VERSE III:

And in the late hours we'll walk the avenue haunting the night drifting home.

Turning the lights down we'll sleep like lovers do - once more to dream our dreams of you.

CHORUS:

That's nothing new with us. It's all to do with us. We may never be apart.

It's sad but true of us. There's just the two of us. Me and my broken heart.

I MISS YOU MORE AND MORE

By Mike McCollum

Chorus :

I miss you more and more each fleeting hour.

I need you more and more than I can say. And I

Wonder what am I to you. I wonder what am I to do.

I miss you more and more and more

As each lonely day drifts by.

Verse I :

More withdrawn I am as I hold on day to day

Surrendering devotion and the love I held so dear.

Like each trembling tear that will fall and fade away,

I may fall apart and disappear.

Chorus :

I miss you more and more each fleeting hour.

I need you more and more than I can say. And I

Wonder what am I to you. I wonder what am I to do.

I miss you more and more and more

As each lonely day drifts by.

Bridge :

When we were young didn't we belong together.

I loved you from the day I met you. How I still want you.

But we were young. That whispered word "forever"

Still echoes here I can't forget you. And I don't want to.

Verse II :

So let your life abound with love; each moment rich and full.

And all your dreams be golden; your heart so strong and true.

But if some day you come to feel your in this world alone,

Then remember somewhere someone's loving you.

Chorus :

I miss you more and more each fleeting hour.

I need you more and more than I can say. And I

Wonder what am I to you. I wonder what am I to do.

I miss you more and more and more

As each lonely day drifts by.

Tag :

I wonder what am I to you. I wonder what am I to do.

I miss you more and more and more

As each lonely day drifts by.

LUCKY DOG

By Mike McCollum

VERSE I

Now I've got a good gal she is my best pal she's loyal, friendly, steadfast and good.

She is my pet. We're playful you bet. We like to stray from the neighborhood.

And race to the park and play until dark then turn tail and make tracks back home.

Where I'll fetch her a treat and lay at her feet. She's my sassy little lassie no more will I roam.

CHORUS

I'm a real lucky dog, lucky dog, lucky dog.

She's this man's best friend and faithful companion.

Lucky dog, lucky dog, lucky dog, lucky dog.

My love's unleashed. She is my champion.

Roll over Rover let the good times take over turn me loose let's go out on the prowl.

When we run together it's always fair weather.

I'm a real lucky dog what a hoot what a howl.

Lucky dog, lucky dog, lucky dog, lucky dog, lucky dog.

VERSE II

I used to be in the doghouse. She called me a big louse. My pet was all over me like the mange.

Now she's all a'twitter. I'm her pick of the litter since I obeyed when she begged me to change.

Now she gets in her licks teaching me new tricks in a husky voice you'll hear me say,

žLike a lost bone I found her. I won't badger or hound her.Ó I'm a real lucky dog

And every dog has his day.

CHORUS

I'm a real lucky dog, lucky dog, lucky dog.

She's this man's best friend and faithful companion.

Lucky dog, lucky dog, lucky dog, lucky dog.

My love's unleashed. She is my champion.

Roll over Rover let the good times take over turn me loose let's go out on the prowl.

When we run together it's always fair weather.

I'm a real lucky dog what a hoot what a howl.

Lucky dog, lucky dog, lucky dog, lucky dog, lucky dog.
