"The Visitors" (1981)




Two For The Price Of One lyrics - Abba

He had what you might call a trivial occupation
He cleaned the platforms of the local railway station
With no romance in his life
Sometimes he wished he had a wife
He read the matrimonial advertising pages
The cries for help from different people, different ages
But they had nothing to say
At least not until the day
When something special he read
This is what it said:

If you dream of the girl for you
Then call us and get two for the price of one
We're the answer if you feel blue
So call us and get two for the price of one
If you dream of the girl for you
(If you are dreaming of someone who might be right for you)
Then call us and get two for the price of one
(Why don't you call us and you'll get two for the price of one)
We're the answer if you feel blue
(We may be the answers to your problem, a chance with we two)
So call us and get two for the price of one
(Why don't you call us and you'll get two for the price of one)

He called the number and a voice said, "Alice Whiting"
The voice was husky and it sounded quite exciting
He was amazed at his luck
The purest streak of gold he'd struck
He said, "I read your ad, it sounded rather thrilling
I think a meeting could be mutually fulfilling
Why don't we meet for a chat
The three of us in my flat
I can't forget what I read"
This is what it said:

If you dream of the girl for you
Then call us and get two for the price of one
We're the answer if you feel blue
So call us and get two for the price of one
If you dream of the girl for you
(If you are dreaming of someone who might be right for you)
Then call us and get two for the price of one
(Why don't you call us and you'll get two for the price of one)
We're the answer if you feel blue
(We may be the answers to your problem, a chance with we two)
So call us and get two
(Why don't you call us and you'll get two)
For the price of one...

She said, "I'm sure we must be perfect for each other
And if you doubt it you'll be certain when you meet my mother"

Soldiers lyrics - Abba

Do I hear what I think I'm hearin'?
Do I see the signs, I think I see?
Or is this just fantasy

Is it true that the beast is wakin'?
Stirrin' in his restless sleep tonight in the pale moonlight
In the grip of this cold December
You and I have reason to remember

Soldiers write the songs that soldiers sing
The songs that you and I don't sing
They blow their horns and march along
They drum their drums and look so strong
You'd think that nothin' in the world was wrong

Soldiers write the songs that soldiers sing
The songs that you and I won't sing
Let's not look the other way, takin' a chance
'Cause if the bugler starts to play
We too must dance

What's that sound, what's that dreadful rumble?
Won't somebody tell me what I hear?
In the distance but drawin' near

Is it only a storm approachin'?
All that thunder and the blinding light in the winter night
In the grip of this cold December
You and I have reason to remember

Soldiers write the songs that soldiers sing
The songs that you and I don't sing
They blow their horns and march along
They drum their drums and look so strong
You'd think that nothin' in the world was wrong

Soldiers write the songs that soldiers sing
The songs that you and I won't sing
Let's not look the other way, takin' a chance
'Cause if the bugler starts to play
We too must dance

Soldiers write the songs that soldiers sing
The songs that you and I won't sing
Let's not look the other way, takin' a chance
'Cause if the bugler starts to play
We too must dance

When All Is Said And Done lyrics - Abba

Here's to us. One more toast, and then we'll pay the bill.
Deep inside, both of us can feel the autumn chill.
Birds of passage, you and me.
We fly instinctively.
When the summer's over and the dark clouds hide the sun,
Neither You nor I'm to blame when all is said and done.

In our lives, we have walked some strange and lonely treks.
Slightly worn, but dignified, and not too old for sex.
We're still striving for the sky,
Got taste for humble pie.
Thanks for all your generous love and thanks for all the fun.
Neither you nor I'm to blame when all is said and done.

It's so strange, when you're down, and lying on the floor,
How you rise, shake your head, get up and ask for more.
Clear-headed and open-eyed, with nothing left untried.
Standing calmly at the crossroads, no desire to run,
There's no hurry anymore when all is said and done.
Standing calmly at the crossroads, no desire to run,
There's no hurry anymore when all is said and done.

"Super Trouper" (1980)




The Way Old Friends Do lyrics - Abba

You and I can share the silence
Finding comfort together
The way old friends do
And after fights and words of violence
We make up with each other
The way old friends do
Times of joy and times of sorrow
We will always see it through
Oh I don't care what comes tomorrow
We can face it together
The way old friends do

You and I can share the silence
Finding comfort together
The way old friends do
And after fights and words of violence
We make up with each other
The way old friends do
Times of joy and times of sorrow
We will always see it through
Oh I don't care what comes tomorrow
We can face it together
The way old friends do

We can face it together
The way old friends do
We can face it together
The way old friends do

We can face it together
The way old friends do
We can face it together
The way old friends do

The Piper lyrics - Abba

They came from the hills
And they came from the valleys and the plains
They struggled in the cold
In the heat and the snow and in the rain
Came to hear him play
Play their minds away

We're all following a strange melody
We're all summoned by a tune
We're following the piper
And we dance beneath the moon...
We're following the piper
And we dance beneath the moon for him
And we dance beneath the moon
Sub luna saltamus

They came from the south
From the west and the north and from the east
They waited for the man
Like a parish is waiting for the priest
Longed to hear him play
Play their minds away

We're all following a strange melody
We're all summoned by a tune
We're following the piper
And we dance beneath the moon...
We're following the piper
And we dance beneath the moon for him
And we dance beneath the moon
Sub luna saltamus

He gave them a dream
He seduced everybody in the land
The fire in his eyes
And the fear was a weapon in his hand
So they let him play
Play their minds away

We're all following a strange melody
We're all summoned by a tune
We're following the piper
And we dance beneath the moon...
We're following the piper
And we dance beneath the moon for him
And we dance beneath the moon

"Voulez-Vous" (1979)




The King Has Lost His Crown lyrics - Abba

I believe your new girl turned you down
And they say she's pushing you around
How does it feel, I guess it hurts your pride
Tell me my friend how many nights you cried

Disaster and disgrace
The king has lost his crown
Suddenly
He's clumsy like a clown
Aaaaah
The world is upside down
The king has lost his crown

Was it hard to step down from your throne
And to know tonight you're all alone
Oh what a shame, you really want that girl
She doesn't care, still you just dream of her

Disaster and disgrace
The king has lost his crown
Suddenly
He's clumsy like a clown
Ha-aaaahh
The world is upside down
The king has lost his crown

Disaster and disgrace
The word is all around
Suddenly
He's clumsy like a clown
Aaaaaaa-ah
The world is upside down
The king has lost his crown

"Arrival" (1976)




Tiger lyrics - Abba

The city is a jungle. You'd better take care.
Never walk alone after midnight.
If you don't believe me, you'd better beware
Of me!

I am behind you.
I always find you.
I am the tiger.
People who fear me
Never come near me.
I am the tiger.

The city is a nightmare, a horrible dream.
Some of us will dream it forever.
Look around the corner, and try not to scream.
It's me!

I am behind you.
I always find you.
I am the tiger.
People who fear me
Never come near me.
I am the tiger.
Yellow eyes are glowing like the neon lights.
Yellow eyes, the spotlights of the city nights.
I am behind you.
I always find you.
I am the tiger.
People who fear me
Never come near me.
I am the tiger.

The city is a prison. You'll never escape.
You're forever trapped in the allies.
Look into the shadows, and you'll see the shape
Of me!

I am behind you.
I always find you.
I am the tiger.
People who fear me
Never come near me.
I am the tiger.
Yellow eyes are glowing like the neon lights.
Yellow eyes, the spotlights of the city nights.
I am behind you.
I always find you.
I am the tiger.
People who fear me
Never come near me.
I am the tiger.
And if I meet you,
What if I eat you?
I am the tiger.
I am behind you.
I always find you.
I am the tiger.
Tiger!
(Tiger!)
Tiger!

That's Me lyrics - Abba

Are you sure you wanna hear more
What if I ain't worth the while
Not the style you'd be lookin' for
If I'm sweet tonight
Things look different in the morning light
I'm jealous and I'm proud
If you hurt my feelings I'll cry out loud
I'm Carrie not-the-kind-of-girl-you'd-marry
That's me

Are you sure you wanna hear more
Would I be the one you seek
Mild and meek like the girl next door
Don't you realise
I may be an angel in disguise
It's lonely to be free
But I'm not a man's toy, I'll never be
I'm Carrie not-the-kind-of-girl-you'd-marry
That's me

I don't believe in fairy-tales
Sweet nothings in my ear
But I do believe in sympathy
That's me, you see

Are you sure you wanna hear more
Won't you have a drink with me
Just to see you're not really sore
I can't help my ways
I'm just not the girl to hide my face
I'm Carrie not-the-kind-of-girl-you'd-marry
That's me

There's a special love
Like an eagle flying with a dove
I'll find it in the end
If I keep on searchin', but until then
I'm Carrie not-the-kind-of-girl-you'd-marry
That's me

"ABBA" (1975)




So Long lyrics - ABBA

You think you're gonna make me softer with your fancy car.
Ah-ha-ha-ah
But I can tell you all your tricks ain't gonna get you far.
Ah-ha-ha-ah
They say that money's got a magic touch,
But not to me; it doesn't mean that much.
You won't have me tonight.
Alright! Alright! Alright! Alright!

So long. See ya, honey.
Can't buy me with your money.
Tracy and Daisy, they may be crazy,
But I'll never be your girl.
So long. See ya, honey.
Can't buy me with your money.
You know it's not worth trying.
So long. So long. So long!

You didn't have to send me flowers like you did today.
Ah-ha-ha-ah
I wouldn't keep a thing from you; I gave them all away.
Ah-ha-ha-ah
The girls might fall for everything you've got,
But I'm not one of them. You know I'm not.
You won't have me tonight.
Alright! Alright! Alright! Alright!

So long. See ya, honey.
Can't buy me with your money.
Tracy and Daisy, they may be crazy,
But I'll never be your girl.
So long. See ya, honey.
Can't buy me with your money.
You know it's not worth trying.
So long. So long. So long!

So long. See ya, honey.
Can't buy me with your money.
You know it's not worth trying.
So long. So long. So long!
So long. So long. So long!
So long. So long. So long!
