1. Stood Up
Well, I've been waitin' ever since eight
Guess my baby's got another date
Stood up, broken-hearted, again
I'll bet she's out havin' a ball
Not even thinkin' of me at all

Stood up, broken-hearted, again

Well, I know just what I oughta do
I oughta find somebody new
But, baby, I couldn't forget about you

Stood up, broken-hearted, again

Why must I always be the one
Left behind never havin' any fun?

Stood up, broken-hearted, again

But I guess I'll go on bein' a fool
Sittin' around just waitin' for you
Stood up, broken-hearted, again
Well, I know just what I oughta do
I oughta find somebody new
But, baby, I couldn't forget about you

Stood up, broken-hearted, again
Stood up, broken-hearted, again
Stood up, broken-hearted, again

2. Waitin' in School
I been a-waitin' in school all day long
a-waitin' on the bell to ring so I can go home
Throw my books on the table, pick up the telephone
";Hello, baby, let's get somethin' goin'";
Headin' down to the drugstore to get a soda pop
Throw a nickel in the jukebox, then we start to rock
My school gal baby, gonna tell ya some news
You sure look good in them baby-doll shoes
Well, it's a-one, two, a-pull off my shoes
Three, four, get out on the floor
Five, six, come get your kicks
Down on the corner of Lincoln and a-forty-six SPOKEN: Yeah!

I've been a-waitin' in school all day long
a-waitin' on the bell to ring so I could go home
Throw my books on the table, pick up the telephone
";Hello, baby, let's get somethin' goin'";
Headin' down to the drugstore to get a soda pop
Throw a nickel in the jukebox, then we start to rock
My school gal baby, gonna tell ya some news
You sure look good in them baby-doll shoes
Well, it's a-one, two, a-pull off my shoes
Three, four, get out on the floor
Five, six, come get your kicks
Down on the corner of Lincoln and a-forty-six

SPOKEN: Yeah!
SPOKEN: Well, let's go now!!

Well, it's a-one, two, a-pull off my shoes
Three, four, get out on the floor
Five, six, come get your kicks
Down on the corner of Lincoln and a-forty-six
You gotta move, start rockin' baby
a rockin', rockin' baby
Gonna rock all night, rock all night
Just wait 'n' see

SPOKEN: Yeah!!

4. My Bucket's Got a Hole in It
Yes, my bucket's got a hole in it
Yes, my bucket's got a hole in it
Yes, my bucket's got a hole in it
I can't buy no beer
Well, I went upon a mountain
I looked down in the sea
I seen the crowds and the fishes
Doing the be bop beep
Cause my bucket's got a hole in it
Yes, my bucket's got a hole in it
Yes, my bucket's got a hole in it
I can't buy no beer
Well, I'm standing on the corner
With a bucket in my hand
I'm a waitin' for a woman
That ain't got no man
Cause my bucket's got a hole in it
Yes, my bucket's got a hole in it
Yes, my bucket's got a hole in it
I can't buy no beer
Well, me and my baby
We bought a Ford
And now we sit together
On the running board
Cause my bucket's got a hole in it
Yes, my bucket's got a hole in it
Yes, my bucket's got a hole in it
I can't buy no beer

5. I'm Walkin'
Ricky decided to record Fats Domino's ";I'm Walking"; because it contained
the only two chords he knew how to play. He sang the song at the end of
the TV show on April 10, 1957.
I'm walking, yes indeed I'm talking
For you and me and I'm hoping
That you'll come back to me
I'm lonely as I can be
And I've waited for your company
And I'm hoping that you'll come back to me
Whatcha gonna do when the well runs dry
You gonna run away and hide
I'm gonna run right by your side
For you, pretty baby, I'd even die
I'm walking, yes indeed I'm talking
For you and me and I'm hoping
That you'll come back to me
I'm walking, yes indeed I'm talking
For you and me and I'm hoping
That you'll come back to me
I'm lonely as I can be
And I've waited for your company
And I'm hoping that you'll come back to me
Whatcha gonna do when the well runs dry
You gonna run away and hide
I'm gonna run right by your side
For you, pretty baby, I'd even die
I'm walking, yes indeed I'm talking
For you and me and I'm hoping
That you'll come back to me

6. Fools Rush in
Fools rush in where angels fear to tread
And so I come to you, my love, my heart above my head.
Though I see the danger there
If there's a chance for me, then I don't care
Mm-mm-mm-mm
Fools rush in where wise men never go
But wise men never fall in love, so how are they to know?
When we met, I felt my life begin
So open up your heart and let this fool rush in
Fools rush in where wise men never, never, never go
Eh, but wise men never fall in love, so how are they to know?
Ahh, when we met, girl, I felt my life begin
So open up your heart and let this fool rush in
Just open up your heart and let this fool rush on in
Just open up your heart because I-I-I-I-I-I-I am coming in
Open up your heart and let this fool rush in!!

7. Travelin' Man
I'm a travelin' man
I've made a lot of stops all over the world
And in every part I own the heart
Of at least one lovely girl
I've a pretty Seniorita waiting for me
Down in old Mexico
If you're ever in Alaska stop and see
My cute little Eskimo
Oh my sweet Fraulien down in Berlin town
Makes my heart start to yearn
And my China doll down in old Hong Kong
Waits for my return
Pretty Polynesian baby over the sea
I remember the night
When we walked in the sands of the Waikiki
And I held you oh so tight
Oh my sweet Fraulien down in Berlin town
Makes my heart start to yearn
And my China doll down in old Hong Kong
Waits for my return
Pretty Polynesian baby over the sea
I remember the night
When we walked in the sands of the Waikiki
And I held you oh so tight
Oh, I'm a travelin' man
Yes, I'm a travelin' man

8. Hello, Mary Lou
You passed me by one sunny day
Flashed those big brown eyes my way
And oo I wanted you forever more
Now I'm not one that gets around
I swear my feet stuck to the ground
And though I never did meet you before

I said ";Hello Mary Lou
Goodbye heart
Sweet Mary Lou
I'm so in love with you

I knew Mary Lou
We'd never part
So Hello Mary Lou
Goodbye heart";
I saw your lips I heard your voice
believe me I just had no choice
Wild horses couldn't make me stay away
I thought about a moonlit night
My arms about good an' tight
That's all I had to see for me to say

9. Garden Party
I went to a garden party to reminisce with my old friends
A chance to share old memories and play our songs again
When I got to the garden party, they all knew my name
No one recognized me, I didn't look the same

But it's all right now, I learned my lesson well.
You see, ya can't please everyone, so ya got to please yourself
People came from miles around, everyone was there
Yoko brought her walrus, there was magic in the air
'n' over in the corner, much to my surprise
Mr. Hughes hid in Dylan's shoes wearing his disguise

lott-in-dah-dah-dah, lot-in-dah-dah-dah
Played them all the old songs, thought that's why they came
No one heard the music, we didn't look the same
I said hello to ";Mary Lou";, she belongs to me
When I sang a song about a honky-tonk, it was time to leave

lot-dah-dah-dah (lot-dah-dah-dah)
lot-in-dah-dah-dah
Someone opened up a closet door and out stepped Johnny B. Goode
Playing guitar like a-ringin' a bell and lookin' like he should
If you gotta play at garden parties, I wish you a lotta luck
But if memories were all I sang, I rather drive a truck

lot-dah-dah-dah (lot-dah-dah-dah)
lot-in-dah-dah-dah
'n' it's all right now, learned my lesson well
You see, ya can't please everyone, so you got to please yourself

10. I Got a Feelin'
Well I've got a feeling
That I'm gonna get you
Say I've got a little feeling
That it won't be long
Till I hold you in my arms and, baby,
that's where you belong

Well I've got a feeling
That you think about me
Well I've got a little feeling
and I hope it's true
'Cause nobody else could want you so
and love you like I do

Well I got a feeling
That our love was meant to be
And there's a whole wild world of happiness
Just waitin' for you and me
So why don't you tell me
That you love me only

'Cause I got a feeling
that you really do
And I never had this feeling

11. I Believe What You Say
I believe what you say when you say you're goin' steady with nobody else but me
I believe what you say when you say you don't kiss nobody else but me
I believe (I believe), do believe (do believe), I believe (I believe)
Yeah, I believe, pretty baby, believe you're goin' steady with nobody else but me
Well, there's-a one thing, baby, that I wantcha to know
When you're rockin' with me don't rock too slow
a-Move on in, get toe-to-toe
We're gonna rock till we can't rock no more
I believe (I believe), do believe (do believe), I believe (I believe)
Yeah, I believe, pretty baby, believe you're goin' steady with nobody else but me
SPOKEN: Well, let's dig it now.
--instrumental break--
Well, I believe what you say when you say you don't miss nobody else but me
I believe what you say when you say you don't kiss nobody else but me
I believe (I believe), do believe (do believe), I believe (I believe)
Yeah, I believe, pretty baby, believe you're goin' steady with nobody else but me
Well, when you kiss me, baby, then you roll your eyes
I get a funny feelin' that I'm hypnotized
Chills run all up and down my spine
I'm tellin' everybody that you're mine, all mine
I believe (I believe), do believe (do believe), yeah believe (yeah believe)
Oh, believe, pretty baby, believe you're goin' steady with nobody else but me
SPOKEN: Oh, yeah!!
Well, I believe, do believe, yeah believe
Well, believe, pretty baby, believe you're goin' steady with nobody else but me

12. It's Late
It's late (it's late)
We gotta get on home
It's late (it's late)
We've been gone too long
Too bad (too bad)
We shoulda checked our time
Can't phone (can't phone)
We done spent ev'ry dime
It's late (it's late)
We're 'bout to run outta gas
It's late (it's late)
We gotta get home fast
Can't speed (can't speed)
We're in a slow-down zone
Baby, look at that clock, why can't it be wrong?
If we coulda left home at a quarter to nine
Woulda had fun and plenty of time
We got started just a little bit late
Hope this won't be our last date
Look up (look up)
Is that the moon we see?
Can't be (can't be)
Looks like the sun to me
It's late (it's late)
I hate to face your Dad
Too bad (too bad)

It's late (it's late)
We gotta get on home
It's late (it's late)
We've been gone too long
--instrumental break--
It's late (it's late)

Baby, look at that clock, why can't it be wrong?
If we coulda left home at a quarter to nine
Woulda had fun and plenty of time
We got started just a little bit late
Hope this won't be our last date
Look up (look up)
Is that the moon we see?

We've been gone too long
(It's late)

13. Just Once More
I've got a million pictures in my heart and here at home
But I'm afraid that they'll just fade with time
And photographs are cold
And a memory's hard to hold
And I never got the chance to say goodbye
One more day-one more night
One more chance to get it right
A few more words-a few more laughs
Doesn't seem too much to ask
And I know it's just a dream
But I'd give everything
If you'd walk through that door just once more
Sometimes I catch myself asking you out loud
What you'd do if you were in my place
'Cause every day in every way
I've tried to make you proud
I wish that I could tell you face to face
One more day-one more night
One more chance to get it right
A few more words-a few more laughs
Doesn't seem too much to ask
And I know it's just a dream
But I'd give everything
If you'd walk through that door just once more
Seasons come and seasons go
But love lives on-you taught me so
Oh-I've been blessed, I don't think twice
But wouldn't it be nice
One more day-one more night
One more chance to get it right
A few more words-a few more laughs
Doesn't seem too much to ask
And I know it's just a dream
But I'd give everything
If you'd walk through that door just once more
