WHEN I HEAR YOU SHOUT... WHEN I HEAR YOU CRY OUT! LET'S DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN!

I’ve been waiting in love for ages

But you don’t, you just don’t come up

I’ve been waiting in this lonely room

But you just don’t, you just don’t come up

*

I’ve been waiting in this room for ages

….But you just don’t come up

I’ve been waiting on my very own,

But you just don’t, you just don’t come up

*

You paid me a little visit, Baby,

So I could show my love

 You held out all ten fingers, Lady,

So I could kiss your glove

*

And then when I hear you shout

When I hear you — cry out

When I hear you shout

LET’S DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN!

*

Oh come into my chamber, Lady,

Don’t take your stockings off

Wolves are howling in the night

I’m howling in my cups

*

I’ll walk the street with flowers for you

I’ll see the dawn rise in

I’ll take you off to Paris, Baby,

Your favorite restaurant by the Seine

*

We’ll spend the night in  strolling,

 And Drinking the finest wine

And back in my hotel room, baby

We’ll tell  stories, so entwined

*
bridge

And when I hear you shout

When I hear you…. cry out

Yeah, when I hear you shout

Let’s do it all over again!

*

It has been a long salvation

To bring the harvest in

I watch you across this smokey room

For you to  enter in

*

I’ve been waiting in love for ages

But you just don’t, you just don’t come up

I’ve been waiting in this lonely room

And now that you’ve come up:

*

Now  I hear you shout

When I hear you cry out

When I hear you shout…

Let’s do it all over again!
