o What I want, I gotta have

o Heed your inner angel

o Appeal to your better angel

o Love wears 10 denier or less

o What makes me love you?

o The magnetic pull of a woman

o Cutting a dash

o A better life begins

o Cotton, pillow and heart

o Getting older ...

o Later life ...

o He took her in his arms and tore …

o A flash of eyes

o Storm clouds within

o Choose wisely

o In the great flood of love

o Took my heart to pieces

o Heaven’s call

o Climate change

o A sip from the cup of true love

o I'll have to smack your b**

o This too shall pass away

o No games, no rules

o My heart, my love, my Valentine

o Would you like to be my girl?

o You and me

o Mislaid and regret

o Worried moon

o Spittin’ feathers

o Take heart, my heart

o No cause to rush

o Midnight voices

What I want, I gotta have.

Four side-by-side, stock quadrajet,

Goes nought to sixty, seven secs,

I had to have it, speed’s my fad,

An’ what I want, I gotta have.


Sweet sugartime, sidewalk on fire,

I looked, I winked, we shared a smile,

But then she stopped, come walkin’ back,

Cause what I want, I gotta have.


Battery flat, my watch has stopped,

Right outside a Rolex shop,

Checked my wedge, phoned the bank,

Cause want I want, I gotta have.


Blue suit, waistcoat, watch and chain,

Bespoke lining, gold la-mé

Bag it up, I’ll pay by cash,

Cause what I want, I gotta have.


Well, that’s about the size of it,

I have to have what makes me tick,

There’s no excuse, beyond the fact,

That what I want, I gotta have.
