ON AND ON

(Stephen Bishop)

Down in Jamaica 
they got lots of pretty women
Steal your money
then they break your heart 
Lonesome Sue
She's in love with ol' Sam
She take him from the fire
into the frying pan

On and on
She just keeps on trying
and she smiles
when she feels like crying
On and on...

Poor ol' Jimmy
Sits alone in the moonlight
He saw his woman kiss another man
So he takes a ladder
Steals the stars from the sky
Puts on Sinatra
and starts to cry

CHORUS  

When the first time
is the last time
It can make you feel so bad
But if you know it
Show it
Hold on tight
Don't let her say, "Goodnight"

I got the sun on my shoulders
and my toes in the sand
My woman's left me for some other man
Aw, but I don't care
I'll just dream and stay tan
Toss up my heart
to see where it lands

On and on...
I just keep on trying
and I smile
when I feel like dying
On and on...
