ABBA: The Movie Fan Event, Sing-A-Long Lyrics

ABBA: The Move Fan Event at The Park Theatre – May 12, 2022

TIGER

The city is a jungle, you better take care

Never walk alone after midnight

If you don’t believe it you better beware

Of me

I am behind you, I’ll always find you, I am the tiger

People who fear me never go 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’ll always find you, I am the tiger

People who fear me never go 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’ll always find you, I am the tiger

People who fear me never go near me, I am the tiger

The city is a prison, you never escape

You’re forever trapped in the alleys

Look into the shadows and you’ll see the shape

Of me

I am behind you, I’ll always find you, I am the tiger

People who fear me never go 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’ll always find you, I am the tiger

People who fear me never go 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’ll always find you, I am the tiger

Tiger, tiger

 

SOS

Where are those happy days? They seem so hard to find

I tried to reach for you but you have closed your mind

Whatever happened to our love, I wish I understood

It used to be so nice, it used to be so good

So when you’re near me, darling can’t you hear me S.O.S.?

The love you gave me, nothing else can save me, S.O.S.

When you’re gone how can I even try to go on?

When you’re gone though I try how can I carry on?

You seemed so far away though you were standing near

You made me feel alive but something died I fear

I really tried to make it out, I wish I understood

What happened to our love, it used to be so good

So when you’re near me, darling can’t you hear me S.O.S.?

The love you gave me, nothing else can save me, S.O.S.

When you’re gone how can I even try to go on?

When you’re gone though I try how can I carry on?

So when you’re near me, darling can’t you hear me S.O.S.?

And the love you gave me, nothing else can save me, S.O.S.

When you’re gone how can I even try to go on?

When you’re gone though I try how can I carry on?

When you’re gone how can I even try to go on?

When you’re gone though I try how can I carry on?

 

Money, Money, Money

I work all night, I work all day, to pay the bills I have to pay

Ain’t it sad

And still there never seems to be a single penny left for me

That’s too bad

In my dreams I have a plan

If i got me a wealthy man

I wouldn’t have to work at all, i’d fool around and have a ball…

Money, money, money

Must be funny

In the rich man’s world

Money, money, money

Always sunny

In the rich man’s world

Aha-ahaaa

All the things I could do

If I had a little money

It’s a rich man’s world

A man like that is hard to find but I can’t get him off my mind

Ain’t it sad

And if he happens to be free I bet he wouldn’t fancy me

That’s too bad

So I must leave, I’ll have to go

To Las Vegas or Monaco

And win a fortune in a game, my life will never be the same…

Money, money, money

Must be funny

In the rich man’s world

Money, money, money

Always sunny

In the rich man’s world

Aha-ahaaa

All the things I could do

If I had a little money

It’s a rich man’s world

Money, money, money

Must be funny

In the rich man’s world

Money, money, money

Always sunny

In the rich man’s world

Aha-ahaaa

All the things I could do

If I had a little money

It’s a rich man’s world

It’s a rich man’s world

 

He is Your Brother

I was a fighter always looking for trouble

And my life was so empty, there was nothing left to live for

But then it happened one night as I got into a fight

I could hear someone saying as though he was praying

Treat him well, he is your brother

You might need his help one day

We depend on one another

Love him that’s the only way

On the road, on the road that we’re going

We all need, we all need words of comfort and compassion

Treat him well, he is your brother

Love him that’s the only way

I was a woman never thinking of others

And my life was so lonely, didn’t care for anybody

But then I happened to meet a begging man in the street

As I turned down his praying I heard someone saying

Treat him well, he is your brother, brother

You might need his help one day, he’s your brother

We depend on one another, brother

Love him that’s the only way

On the road, on the road that we’re going, that we’re going

We all need, we all need words of comfort and compassion

Treat him well, he is your brother, brother

Love him that’s the only way

Treat him well, he is your brother, brother

You might need his help one day, he’s your brother

We depend on one another, brother

Love him, that’s the only way

Treat him well, he is your brother, brother

You might need his help one day, he’s your brother

We depend on one another, brother

 

Waterloo

My, my

At Waterloo, Napoleon did surrender

Oh, yeah

And I have met my destiny in quite a similar way

The history book on the shelf

Is always repeating itself

Waterloo

I was defeated, you won the war

Waterloo

Promise to love you forever more

Waterloo

Couldn’t escape if I wanted to

Waterloo

Knowing my fate is to be with you

Wa-Wa-Wa-Wa-Waterloo

Finally facing my Waterloo

My, my

I tried to hold you back, but you were stronger

Oh, yeah

And now it seems my only chance is giving up the fight

And how could I ever refuse

I feel like I win when I lose

Waterloo

I was defeated, you won the war

Waterloo

Promise to love you for ever more

Waterloo

Couldn’t escape if I wanted to

Waterloo

Knowing my fate is to be with you

Wa-Wa-Wa-Wa-Waterloo

Finally facing my Waterloo

So how could I ever refuse

I feel like I win when I lose

Waterloo

Couldn’t escape if I wanted to

Waterloo

Knowing my fate is to be with you

Wa-Wa-Wa-Wa-Waterloo

Finally facing my Waterloo

Ooh-ooh, Waterloo

Knowing my fate is to be with you

Wa-Wa-Wa-Wa-Waterloo

Finally facing my Waterloo

Ooh-ooh, Waterloo…

 

9 Mama Mia

I’ve been cheated by you since I don’t know when

So I made up my mind, it must come to an end

Look at me now, will I ever learn?

I don’t know how but I suddenly lose control

There’s a fire within my soul

Just one look and I can hear a bell ring

One more look and I forget everything, whoa

 

Mamma mia, here I go again

My my, how can I resist you?

Mamma mia, does it show again?

My my, just how much I’ve missed you

Yes, I’ve been brokenhearted

Blue since the day we parted

Why, why did I ever let you go?

Mamma mia, now I really know

My my, I could never let you go

 

I’ve been angry and sad about things that you do

I can’t count all the times that I told you we’re through

And when you go, when you slam the door

I think you know that you won’t be away too long

You know that I’m not that strong

Just one look and I can hear a bell ring

One more look and I forget everything, whoa

 

Mamma mia, here I go again

My my, how can I resist you?

Mamma mia, does it show again?

My my, just how much I’ve missed you

Yes, I’ve been brokenhearted

Blue since the day we parted

Why, why did I ever let you go?

Mamma mia, even if I say

Bye bye, leave me now or never

Mamma mia, it’s a game we play

Bye bye doesn’t mean forever

 

Mamma mia, here I go again

My my, how can I resist you?

Mamma mia, does it show again?

My my, just how much I’ve missed you

Yes, I’ve been brokenhearted

Blue since the day we parted

Why, why did I ever let you go

Mamma mia, now I really know

My my, I could never let you go

13 I’ve been Waiting For You

 

I, I’ve been in love before

I thought I would no more

Manage to hit the ceiling

Still, strange as it seems to be

You brought it back to me

That old feeling

I, I don’t know what you do

You make me think that you

Possibly could release me

I think you’ll be able to

Make all my dreams come true

And you ease me

You thrill me, you delight me

You please me, you excite me

You’re something I’d been pleading for

I love you, I adore you

I lay my life before you

I’ll have you want me more and more

And finally, it seems my lonely days are through

I’ve been waiting for you

I, I’m gonna make you mine

You’re gonna feel so fine

You’ll never want to leave me

I feel you belong to me

Someday, you will agree

Please, believe me

You thrill me, you delight me

You please me, you excite me

You’re something I’d been pleading for

I love you, I adore you

I lay my life before you

I’ll have you want me more and more

And finally, it seems my lonely days are through

I’ve been waiting for you

Oh, I’ve been waiting for you

Na na na, na na na, na-na na

Na na na, na na na, na-na na

Na na na, na na na, na-na na-naa

Na na na, na na na, na-na na

Na na na, na na na, na-na na

Na na na, na na na, na-na na-naa

Na na na, na na na, na-na na

Na na na, na na na, na-na na

Na na na, na na na, na-na na-naa

Na na na, na na na, na-na na

Na na na, na na na, na-na na

Na na na, na na na, na-na na-naa

 

15 The Name of The Game

 

I’ve seen you twice, in a short time

Only a week since we started

It seems to me, for every time

I’m getting more open-hearted

I was an impossible case

No-one ever could reach me

But I think I can see in your face

There’s a lot you can teach me

So I wanna know

What’s the name of the game?

Does it mean anything to you?

What’s the name of the game?

Can you feel it the way I do?

Tell me please, ’cause I have to know

I’m a bashful child, beginning to grow

And you make me talk

And you make me feel

And you make me show

What I’m trying to conceal

If I trust in you, would you let me down?

Would you laugh at me, if I said I care for you?

Could you feel the same way too?

I wanna know

The name of the game

I have no friends, no-one to see

And I am never invited

Now I am here, talking to you

No wonder I get excited

Your smile, and the sound of your voice

And the way you see through me

Got a feeling, you give me no choice

But it means a lot to me

So I wanna know

What’s the name of the game?

(Your smile and the sound of your voice)

Does it mean anything to you?

(Got a feeling you give me no choice)

(But it means a lot)

What’s the name of the game?

(Your smile and the sound of your voice)

Can you feel it the way I do?

Tell me please, ’cause I have to know

I’m a bashful child, beginning to grow

And you make me talk

And you make me feel

And you make me show

What I’m trying to conceal

If I trust in you, would you let me down?

Would you laugh at me, if I said I care for you?

Could you feel the same way too?

I wanna know

Oh yes I wanna know

The name of the game

(I was an impossible case)

Does it mean anything to you?

(But I think I can see in your face)

(That it means a lot)

What’s the name of the game?

(Your smile and the sound of your voice)

Can you feel it the way I do?

(Got a feeling you give me no choice)

(But it means a lot)

What’s the name of the game?

(I was an impossible case)

Does it mean anything to you?

(But I think I can see in your face)

(That it means a lot)

What’s the name of the game?

(Your smile and the sound of your voice)

Can you feel it the way I do?

 

Why did it Have to Be Me

When you were lonely, you needed a man

Someone to lean on, well I understand

It’s only natural

But why did it have to be me?

Nights can be empty, nights can be cold

So you were looking for someone to hold

That’s only natural

But why did it have to be me?

I was so lonesome, I was blue

I couldn’t help it, it had to be you and I

Always thought you knew the reason why

I only wanted a little love affair

Now I can see you are beginning to care

But baby, believe me

It’s better to forget me

Men are toys in the game that you play

When you get tired, you throw them away

That’s only natural

But why did it have to be me?

Falling in love with a woman like you

Happens so quickly, there’s nothing to do

It’s only natural

But why did it have to be me?

I was so lonesome, I was blue

I couldn’t help it, it had to be you and I

Always thought you knew the reason why

I only wanted a little love affair

Now I can see you are beginning to care

But baby, believe me

It’s better to forget me

 

When I kissed the Teacher 

Everybody screamed

When I kissed the teacher

And they must have thought they dreamed

When I kissed the teacher

All my friends at school

They had never seen the teacher blush, he looked like a fool

Nearly petrified ’cause he was taken by surprise

When I kissed the teacher

Couldn’t quite believe his eyes

When I kissed the teacher

My whole class went wild

As I held my breath, the world stood still

But then he just smiled

I was in the seventh heaven

When I kissed the teacher

One of these days

Gonna tell him I dream of him every night

One of these days

Gonna show him I care, gonna teach him a lesson alright

I was in a trance

When I kissed the teacher

Suddenly I took the chance

When I kissed the teacher

Leaning over me

He was trying to explain the laws of geometry

And I couldn’t help it

I just had to kiss the teacher

One of these days

Gonna tell him I dream of him every night

One of these days

Gonna show him I care

Gonna teach him a lesson alright

What a crazy day

When I kissed the teacher

All my sense had flown away

When I kissed the teacher

My whole class went wild

As I held my breath, the world stood still

But then he just smiled

I was in the seventh heaven

When I kissed the teacher

(I wanna hug, hug, hug him) when I kissed the teacher

(I wanna hug, hug him) when I kissed the teacher

(I wanna hug, hug, hug him) when I kissed the teacher

(I wanna hug, hug him) when I kissed the teacher

(I wanna hug, hug, hug him)

I’m a Marionette

“You’re so free,” that’s what everybody’s telling me

Yet I feel I’m like an outward-bound, pushed around, refugee

Something’s wrong, got a feeling that I don’t belong

As if I have come from outer space, out of place, like King Kong

I’m a marionette, just a marionette, pull the string

I’m a marionette, everybody’s pet, just as long as I sing

I’m a marionette, see my pirouette, round and round

I’m a marionette, I’m a marionette, just a silly old clown

Like a doll, like a puppet with no will at all

And somebody taught me how to talk, how to walk, how to fall

Can’t complain, I’ve got no one but myself to blame

Something’s happening, I can’t control, lost my hold, is it safe?

I’m a marionette, just a marionette, pull the string

I’m a marionette, everybody’s pet, just as long as I sing

I’m a marionette, see my pirouette, round and round

I’m a marionette, I’m a marionette, just a silly old clown

“Look this way, just a little smile,” is what they say

“You look better on the photograph if you laugh, that’s okay”

I’m a marionette, just a marionette, pull the string

I’m a marionette, everybody’s pet, just as long as I sing

I’m a marionette, see my pirouette, round and round

I’m a marionette, I’m a marionette, just a silly old clown

“You’re so free,” that’s what everybody’s telling me

Yet I feel I’m like an outward-bound, pushed around, refugee

 

Fernando

Can you hear the drums, Fernando?

I remember long ago another starry night like this

In the firelight, Fernando

You were humming to yourself and softly strumming your guitar

I could hear the distant drums

And sounds of bugle calls were coming from afar

They were closer now, Fernando

Every hour, every minute, seemed to last eternally

I was so afraid, Fernando

We were young and full of life and none of us prepared to die

And I’m not ashamed to say

The roar of guns and cannons almost made me cry

There was something in the air that night

The stars were bright, Fernando

They were shining there for you and me

For liberty, Fernando

Though we never thought that we could lose

There’s no regret

If I had to do the same again

I would, my friend, Fernando

If I had to do the same again

I would, my friend, Fernando

Now we’re old and grey, Fernando

Since many years, I haven’t seen a rifle in your hand

Can you hear the drums, Fernando

Do you still recall the fateful night we crossed the Rio Grande

I can see it in your eyes

How proud you were to fight for freedom in this land

There was something in the air that night

The stars were bright, Fernando

They were shining there for you and me

For liberty, Fernando

Though we never thought that we could lose

There’s no regret

If I had to do the same again

I would, my friend, Fernando

There was something in the air that night

The stars were bright, Fernando

They were shining there for you and me

For liberty, Fernando

Though we never thought that we could lose

There’s no regret

If I had to do the same again

I would, my friend, Fernando

Yes, if I had to do the same again

I would, my friend, Fernando

If I had to do the same again

I would, my friend, Fernando

 

Dancing Queen 

You can dance, you can jive

Having the time of your life

See that girl, watch that scene

Diggin’ the dancing queen

Friday night and the lights are low

Looking out for a place to go

Where they play the right music

Getting in the swing

You come to look for a king

Anybody could be that guy

Night is young and the music’s high

With a bit of rock music, everything is fine

You’re in the mood for a dance

And when you get the chance

You are the dancing queen

Young and sweet, only seventeen

Dancing queen

Feel the beat from the tambourine, oh yeah

You can dance, you can jive

Having the time of your life

See that girl, watch that scene

Diggin’ the dancing queen

You’re a teaser, you turn ’em on

Leave them burning and then you’re gone

Looking out for another, anyone will do

You’re in the mood for a dance

And when you get the chance

You are the dancing queen

Young and sweet, only seventeen

Dancing queen

Feel the beat from the tambourine, oh yeah

You can dance, you can jive

Having the time of your life

See that girl, watch that scene

Diggin’ the dancing queen

Diggin’ the dancing queen

Diggin’ the dancing queen

Diggin’ the dancing queen

Do you want to hear an oldie?

Do you want to hear that oldie?

Which one?

 

So Long

You think you’re gonna make me softer with your fancy car

But I can tell you all your tricks ain’t gonna get you far

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

All right, all right, all right, all right

So long, see you honey

You can’t buy me with your money

Tracy, Daisy, they may be crazy

But I’ll never be your girl

So long, see you honey

You 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

I wouldn’t keep a thing from you, I gave them all away

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

All right, all right, all right, all right

So long, see you honey

You can’t buy me with your money

Tracy, Daisy, they may be crazy

But I’ll never be your girl

So long, see you honey

You can’t buy me with your money

You know it’s not worth trying

So long, so long, so long

So long, see you honey

You 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

 

Eagle

They came flying from far away

Now I’m under their spell

I love hearing the stories that they tell

They’ve seen places beyond my land

And they’ve found new horizons

They speak strangely but I understand

And I dream I’m an eagle

And I dream I can spread my wings

Flying high, high, I’m a bird in the sky

I’m an eagle that rides on the breeze

High, high, what a feeling to fly

Over mountains and forests and seas

And to go anywhere that I please

As all good friends, we talk all night

And we fly wing to wing

I have questions and they know everything

There’s no limit to what I feel

We climb higher and higher

Am I dreaming, or is it all real?

Is it true I’m an eagle?

Is it true I can spread my wings?

Flying high, high, I’m a bird in the sky (I’m an eagle)

I’m an eagle that rides on the breeze

High, high, what a feeling to fly (what a feeling)

Over mountains and forests and seas

And to go anywhere that I please

And I dream I’m an eagle

And I dream I can spread my wings

Flying high, high, I’m a bird in the sky (I’m an eagle)

I’m an eagle that rides on the breeze

High, high, what a feeling to fly (what a feeling)

Over mountains and forests and seas

High, high, I’m a bird in the sky (I’m an eagle)

I’m an eagle that rides on the breeze

High, high, what a feeling to fly (what a feeling)

Over mountains and forests and seas

And to go anywhere that I please

 

Thank you for the Music

I’m nothing special, in fact I’m a bit of a bore

If I tell a joke, you’ve probably heard it before

But I have a talent, a wonderful thing

‘Cause everyone listens when I start to sing

I’m so grateful and proud

All I want is to sing it out loud

So I say

Thank you for the music, the songs I’m singing

Thanks for all the joy they’re bringing

Who can live without it? I ask in all honesty

What would life be

Without a song or a dance, what are we?

So I say thank you for the music

For giving it to me

Mother says I was a dancer before I could walk

Mmm, she says I began to sing long before I could talk

And I’ve often wondered, how did it all start?

Who found out that nothing can capture a heart

Like a melody can?

Well, whoever it was, I’m a fan

So I say

Thank you for the music, the songs I’m singing

Thanks for all the joy they’re bringing

Who can live without it? I ask in all honesty

What would life be

Without a song or a dance, what are we?

So I say thank you for the music

For giving it to me

I’ve been so lucky, I am the girl with golden hair

I wanna sing it out to everybody

What a joy, what a life, what a chance

Thank you for the music, the songs I’m singing

Thanks for all the joy they’re bringing

Who can live without it? I ask in all honesty

What would life be

Without a song or a dance, what are we?

So I say thank you for the music

For giving it to me

So I say thank you for the music

For giving it to me

 

THANKS FOR COMING TO THE SHOW!
