YOU MAKE ME LAUGH MORE THAN YOU MAKE ME CRY

Lyrics by Marv Rubinstein       Music by Danny Gold

You make me laugh more than you make me cry.
That’s why I love you still, even after all these years.
You make me smile more than you make me frown,
Calming my sorrows, kidding away my tears

If into our life some tears must fall,
My answer is, “So what?”
If humor is my compensation
For tears I soon forgot.

With you I’m happy much more than I am sad,
Wanting you near me, I fear when I’m alone.
Scold me and tease me, but still I can’t resist.
You found my weakness, tickling my funny bone.

If into our life some tears must fall,
My answer is, “So what?”
If humor is my compensation
Loving you is just my lot.

You make me laugh more than you make me cry.
That’s why I love you now, and more and more as time goes by.
Clown of my life, until the day I die,
I know you’ll make me laugh more than you make me cry.

IN THE BIBLICAL SENSE OF THE WORD

Lyrics by Marv Rubinstein          Music by Danny Gold

When Adam met Eve in the Garden And tasted the apple of life,
After only a brief hesitation. Came an overpowering sensation.
He suddenly wanted to touch her, hug her and squeeze her, but more

Refrain:
He wanted to know her, to know her, to know her
In the Biblical sense of the word.

Now Sampson was Biblically macho With hair still unshorn and in place,
But Delila, a devious frail, Proved his strength of little avail.

Weak, . . . refrain:

What children are taught, it ain’t necessarily true.
The folks in the Bible did everything modern folks do.

Solomon, mighty King of the Jews, Whose wisdom was known far and wide,
Sought a  woman with whom to unwind From Sheba, whose Queen blew his mind.

Crazy, . . . Refrain:

Like us all, the men in the Bible, Be they first or most strong or most wise,
For that real special glow wanted women to know.
To know, in the Biblical sense, in the Biblical sense of the word

YOU’RE A PAIN IN THE ASS, BUT I LOVE YOU

Lyrics by Marv Rubinstein                  Music by Danny Gold

You’re a pain in the ass, but I love you.
I can never get enough of you.
Oh, I know that sounds strange and slightly deranged,
But, believe it or not, it is true.

You’re a pain in the ass, but you’re mine
And that contradiction with me is just fine.
Contrary or not, I guess that is our lot,
Still, it’s lasted a very long time.

Twenty-five years together is a long time, they say,
But a quarrel a day keeps the lawyer away.

You’re a pain in the ass but a pleasure.
Lots of laughter and tears, but a treasure.
And I bet that, to you, I’m a Royal pain too
Which one’s greater, who is to measure?

IF YOU’RE GOING TO LIE BY ME, YOU’VE GOT TO STAND BY ME

Lyrics by Marv Rubinstein     Music by Danny Gold

I’m tired of men who love and run, who only want me for some fun.
From this day on, each new relation must now involve reciprocation.

Refrain:

If you’re going to lie by me, you’ve got to stand by me;
And if you lay me down, You’ve got to cheer me up.
And when I’m feeling blue And feel the need of you;
You better get here fast to make me smile and laugh.

Refrain:

And if I’m all alone And Panic on the phone;
Know that this friend in need Requires a friend indeed.

Refrain:

What if the rent’s past due, And Dear I turn to you,
(This damsel in distress faces a dispossess.)
I need a sport who’s neat Who’ll help me make ends meet.

Refrain:

And if I’m feeling randy, And baby needs some candy;
Please heed my SOS’s And bring me sweet caresses.

Modified Refrain:

So if you stand by me, then come and lie by me.
Come here and cheer me up Before you lay me down.
