Boom Town- The New Seekers

The Great Pretender- Peter Doyle (Lyrics)

The Great Pretender

Oh-oh, oh yeah I’m the great pretender

Pretending that I’m doing well

My need is such I pretend too much

I’m lonely but no one can tell

Oh-oh, oh yeah I’m the great pretender

Adrift in a world of my own

I’ve played the game but to my real shame

You’ve left me to grieve all alone

Too real is this feeling of make-believe

Too real when I feel what my heart can’t conceal

Love, love

Oh-oh, oh yeah I’m the great pretender

Just laughin’ and gay like a clown

I seem to be what I’m not, you see

I’m wearing my heart like a crown

Too real is this feeling of make-believe

Too real when I feel what my heart can’t conceal

Love, love

Oh-oh, oh yeah I’m the great pretender

Just laughin’ and gay like a clown

I seem to be what I’m not, you see

I’m wearing my heart like a crown

Pretending that you’re still around

We Believe In Lovin’/ Take The Right Train- Peter Doyle (Lyrics)

We Believe In Lovin’/ Take The Right Train- Peter Doyle


Raining keeps on fallin”

And the clouds may all be grey

The forest streets and all the leaves

May all be blown away

Couldn’t be a greyer day

To get out there seems no way


Come with me and we’ll walk

Every mountain high

We’ll go searchin’

Every far and sky

We believe in lovin’

And lovin’s what we believe

We’ll take the right train

To a brighter day

We sure will know when

That we’re on our way

We believe in lovin’

And lovin’s what we believe

With all of our days spent together


You blew the tune don’t know why

And the sadness hangs around

Listen to me and we’ll beat this old charm

While there’s nothing that can get you down

You can smile you don’t have to frown

Say goodbye to everything around


Come with me and we’ll walk

Every mountain high

We’ll go searchin’

Every far and sky

We believe in lovin’

And lovin’s what we believe

We’ll take the right train

To a brighter day

We sure will know when

That we’re on our way

We believe in lovin’

And lovin’s what we believe

With all of our days spent together


Come with me and we’ll walk

Every mountain high

We’ll go searchin’

Every far and sky

We believe in lovin’

And lovin’s what we believe

We’ll take the right train

To a brighter day

We sure will know when

That we’re on our way

We believe in lovin’

And lovin’s what we believe

If You Can Put That In A Bottle -Peter Doyle (Lyrics)

There are some holes in this lyrics. To those who have a better version or can help fill up the holes, your help will be greatly appreciated.

If You Can Put That In A Bottle -Peter Doyle

Every mention happy equal opportunity

To have his dream

A beauty queen and his young man

A girl who with vocabulary voice _ contrary

Incapable of saying no except when it means yes

If you can put that in a bottle

You can make a million dollars

Is what you’ll probably end up keeping it for yourself

If you can put that in a bottle

You can make a million dollars

Is what you’ll probably end up keeping it for yourself

Picture this it’s 12 or later

You’re _ refrigerator

Fasten with a stubborn bottle top

And then there suddenly come spilling

_ but to somebody’s willing

To suit your wearing frown without a hassle from the start

If you can put that in a bottle

You can make a million dollars

Is what you’ll probably end up keeping it for yourself

If you can put that in a bottle

You can make a million dollars

Is what you’ll probably end up keeping it for yourself

La x26

La x26

La x4

If you can put that in a bottle

You can make a million dollars

Is what you’ll probably end of keeping it for yourself

If you can put that in a bottle

You can make a million dollars

Is what you’ll probably end of keeping it for yourself
