UB40 Lyrics


Homely Girl


It must have broke your poor little heart

When the boys used to say,

You looked better in the dark.

But now they`d give all they learnt in school

To be somewhere in the dark with you

The teacher would ask the questions

And you, would always raise your hand

But somehow you never got your turn

And my eyes would fill with water, inside i'd burn

Homely girl, you used to be so lonely

You`re a beautiful woman oh yes you are

Homely girl you used to be so lonely 

You`re a beautiful woman oh yeah

There was a boy who used to sit beside you

Who`d like to hold that place his whole life through

Oooh you were beautiful to me

You had a heart no one could ever see,

oh yes you did

Homely girl, you used to be so lonely

You`re a beautiful woman oh homely girl

I was the only one who offered

To carry your books

Took all the stares and laughter

And the dirty looks

Cause I saw then what they see now

They all want to ask you for a date

They don`t know how, they don`t know how

Homely girl, you used to be so lonely

You`re a beautiful woman oh yeah

Homely girl you used to be so lonely

You`re a beautiful woman, ooh yea, ooh hoo

You`re a beautiful woman



Kingston Town


The night seems to fade,

But the moonlight lingers on

There are wonders for everyone

The stars shine so bright,

But they`re fading after dawn

There is magic in kingston town

Oh kingston town,

The place I long to be

If I had the whole world

I would give it away

Just to see, the girls at play

Ooh, ooh, ooh

And when I am king,

Surely I would need a queen

And a palace and everything, yeah

And now I am king,

And my queen will come at dawn

She`ll be waiting in kingston town

And when I am king,

Surely I would need a queen

And a palace and everything, yeah

And now I am king,

And my queen will come at dawn

She`ll be waiting in kingston town

Oracabessa Moonshine

Oracabessa moonshine

Is washing over me

The Jacaranda tree

And bathing in the sea

Oracabessa sun up

Will chase the night away

Across the Lada bay

And back to yesterday

A warm Blue Mountain raincloud, welcomed by the land

Made the morning cooler, left a rainbow in the sand

Sweet Hibiscus lingers in my own backyard

With a million different colours of a Hummingbird

Orocabessa sunshine

Is washing over me

The Jacaranda tree

And bathing in the sea

Oracabessa sun up

Will chase the night away

Across the Lada bay

And back to yesterday

The Firefly's romance ignites the evening shade

Makes the twilight dance a moonlight serenade

The smoke sends out a signal above the golden sea

Another day in Ladda Bay is waiting there for me

Oracabessa moonshine

Is washing over me

The Jacaranda tree

And bathing in the sea

Oracabessa sun up

Will chase the night away

Across the Lada bay

And back to yesterday



Where Did I Go Wrong?

Im sitting here praying that you werent just saying

Leaving tomorrow was what you had planned

No point in pretending, I know that it's ending

I just want to know where the ending began

Where did I go wrong to make it like this

No warmth in your body, no touch in your kiss

Holding you now, hurts more than it should

If I let you go, girl, you'll be gone for good

I thought you had saved me, the love that you gave me

The sweetest loving in all of the land

But youve taken my heart, and youve torn it apart

And it's crumbled to dust in the palm of your hand

Where did I go wrong...

There's nothin worth sayin, I know you're not staying

Might as well face it, it's out of my hand

No point in pretending, I know that it's ending

I just want to know where the ending began

Where did I go wrong...
