(Richards / Arbuckle) V1 It’s a bird, It’s a plane A girl and a game No Lois Lane (and) No-o Robin Nothing to fear when she’s near Tying her cape Mask on her face Saving the day From all the rotten The world needs a smile and it’s here PRE 1 In a single bound Look what she’s doing now CH She’s Up To Something Good Whenever she’s around then Life feels the way it should It’s amazing how When everything is in a mess That’s when it’s It’s the best, yeah She’s Up To Something Good V2 One of those days Dizzy and dazed The whole world’s a maze And you’re the hamster Chasing your tail, ‘round a wheel Life’s loop-di-loops Puddles of goop Strawberries boots, her go-to answer Try it and see how good it feels PRE 2 In a single a bound Shazam, splat, pow CHORUS Instrumental Bridge CHORUS REPEAT

V1 I’ve got a secret And I don’t want to keep it Can I give it away to you? If we get a little closer Like a bee gets to clover Can I give you a clue? It’s something that you do CHORUS Ba ba baa Ba ba baa I love you Ba Ba Baa Ba Ba Baa Dreams do come true Ba ba baa Ba ba baa Ba ba ba baa V2 If everybody Made love instead of money The sky would be a little more blue If they felt the butterflies Looking in another’s eyes The world from love’s point of view They’d be singing too CHORUS BR I love you, only you And I know You love me too (4x) CHORUS Ba ba baa Ba ba baa I love you Ba Ba Baa Ba Ba Baa Dreams do come true Ba ba baa Ba ba baa I love you Ba Ba Baa Ba Ba Baa Dreams do come true Ba ba baa Ba ba baa I love you

V1 Life a puzzle So much trouble To make all The pieces fit This way, that way Where or when? So close, uh-oh Missed again Always opposite PRE Trying to get closer, so yer Pulling the string Harder we try The more it’s unraveling CH Ooo, ooh ah La, la la Love is the way we go together Ooo, ooh ah La, la la Love is the way we go we’ll go forever V2 Deep, dark secrets Zeis zoom sees it Stops all the whistle blows Keep your head stuck in the sand 1,2,3, Strike up the band, Who’s got the emperor’s clothes? PRE 2 Spinning around, round, round A flower child Sowin’ the seeds of love Every once in a smile CHORUS SCAT BRIDGE CHORUS REPEAT TAG Love is the way la, la, la...

V1 Hard to see Hard to breathe Hard to believe In anything CH Take me away Pack your bags Let’s go today Let’s be kids and play Run, run, run, before we turn grey Take me away V2 Ride the wind Like a wave Hold my hand And say, “Don’t be afraid” CH Take me away Pack your bags Let’s go today Let’s stay kids and play Run, run, run, before we turn grey Take me away BR Just like pretending Pick who you wanna be I’ll be the mountain You be the sea Just like pretending Pick who you wanna be I’ll be the mountain You’ll be the sea You’ll be the sea... REPEAT CH

V1 I thought I put it Someplace safe But I caught a glimpse of it Run-ning away Would have been better Swept under the rug Oh where, Oh where Is my Mis-placed Love V2 With a cheeky bird Up in a tree? Cajoled from its cage Finally free? TAG 2 One little crumb down a dangerous path Will it find it’s way back? Oh, love, love, love CHORUS 1 Funny how it’s only found when it’s lost Makes the world’ go ‘round And my heart stop Where, oh where is my Misplaced love? V3 Last time I had it There came you A stranger whose danger- ous “How do you do?” A punch above my weight Without kid gloves Tied on the tracks all because of Love, love, love, CHORUS 2 SOLO / SCAT CHORUS It’s the little riddle I’m in the middle of: A bit of bad is good And here’s the rub Love is blind So hard to find Misplaced Love! La, la, la ,la Funny how it’s only found when it’s lost Makes the world’ go ‘round And my heart stop Where, oh where is my Misplaced love? So, have you seen my misplaced love? Have you seen my misplaced love?

V1 What, am I crazy or what to be thinking this But what do you call what I’m feeling when we kiss Oooh, Oooh I don’t mean to be jumping to anything No, I’m not doing nothing, just want to sing Oooh, Oooh CH Let’s take the ride Cause this road Is wide op-en Jump inside And we’ll fly And we’ll keep on goin’ V2 Somehow you know how to hold every part of me You’re on a roll doin’ what comes naturally Won’t let the sun say we’re done with the perfect day Who’s gonna miss us if we runaway REPEAT CH BR I’ve always wanted to see California They’ve got cowboys and palm trees and it’s warm, yeah REPEAT CH

No make-up Just a tan on my face Cut-off jeans Bikini strings over the waist The way my legs stick to the seat Been waiting all winter for the end of this week I’m ready, so bring on the heat CH Let’s make a Run for the sunshine Leave my troubles behind Yeah, yeah, feeling fine Life’s about enjoying the ride Make a run for the sunshine VERSE 2 Coconut Floating over the breeze Blankets, BBQ Surfboards and frisbees Riding along on the strand Shining bodies and toes in the sand Hardly working, as hard as we can CHORUS BR Something about the how the light lays Across the water Yesterday fades And all I want for tomorrow REPEAT CHORUS

V1 Trumpets Ta - ta - tet Oom-pah Clarinet Fine parade A sunny day Sticky cheeks and Lemonade Block towers Planting seeds Robots Dirty feet The birds we were Saved the day Until we had to Fly away CH Waving goodbye But I don’t understand Searching the sky As the train rounds the bend Waiting to say hello again Waiting to say hello again V2 A tree falls Where’s the sound? The rosey We ring around? Salad days Left behind For stand up straight And stand in line The snakes have have left their nooks for busywork and important books Bigger dreams Than fairy tales Starfish Wanting to be whales CH Waving good bye But I don’t understand Searching the sky as the train rounds the bend Waiting…. BRIDGE I’ll call a dragon To show you the way To hold your hand In the far off land Of friends to be made Where’s the good part In this thing called good bye? No one is talking And I don’t know why ((Instrumental)) V3 Smiles in a treasure box Memories a sly fox The last to leave the fine parade Watch the petals swept away CH Waving goodbye But I don’t understand Searching the sky As the train rounds the bend Waiting to say hello again Waiting to say hello again

V1 Trip Through life On a high wire Who’ll catch me When I fall? Skip (to) The end To miss the fire And crash the crystal ball PRE Fickle clouds of fate Come and, blow me away CH Somebody, somewhere Is who I am Slingshot Off a rubber band Stepping 1 forward and 2 back Love - it’s like heart attack Somebody somewhere else Is gonna Feel it too // (Is it you?) Ba-doo, ba-doo…. V2 Staring At you while you sleep I miss you like you’re gone Waking up It’s just a dream Where do I belong? PRE The bubble on my tongue ahh the taste of fun CHORUS BRIDGE (PRE) Fickle clouds of fate Come and, blow me away CHORUS REPEAT
