  1. Cupid

    Cupid

    Cupid draw back your bow
    And let your arrow go
    Straight back to my lover’s heart for me
    Cupid please hear my cry
    And let your arrow fly
    Straight to my lover’s heart for me

    Now I don’t mean to bother you
    But I’m in distress
    There’s danger of me losing all of my happiness
    For I love a girl who doesn’t know I exist
    And this you can fix So…

    Cupid draw back your bow
    And let your arrow go
    Straight to my lover’s heart for me
    Cupid please hear my cry
    And let your arrow fly
    Straight to my lover’s heart for me

    Cupid with your arrow make her love strong for me
    I promise I wll love her until eternity
    I know between the two of us her heart we can steal
    help me if you will So…

    Cupid draw back your bow
    And let your arrow go
    Straight to my lover’s heart for me
    Cupid please hear my cry
    And let your arrow fly
    Straight to my lover’s heart for me

    Cupid
    don’t you hear me
    calling you
    I need you
    Cupid
    help me

  2. That’s Where It’s At

    That’s Where It’s At

    Lights turned way down low
    And music soft and slow
    With someone you love so
    That’s where it’s at

    Your world turned upside down
    You make not a sound
    No one else around
    That’s where it’s at

    Your heart, beating fast
    You’re knowing that time will pass
    But hoping that it lasts
    That’s where it’s at

    That’s where it’s at
    Pretty baby
    That’s where it’s at
    Whoa, yes it is
    That’s where it’s at
    Pretty baby
    That’s where it’s at
    Oh yeah

    Let me tell you this one thing

    To say, “It’s time to go”
    And she says, “Yes, I know, but just stay one minute more”
    That’s where it’s at
    Oh let me say it one more time
    That’s where it’s at
    Pretty baby
    That’s where it’s at
    I know that’s where it’s at
    That’s where it’s at
    Pretty baby
    That’s where it’s at

    You spread your wings and take to the sky
    But until that morning there is nothing can harm you
    With your daddy and mommy standing by
