Maybe I should go and live in Amsterdam In a side street in a big canal Spend my evenings in the Van Gogh Museum What a dream, Van Gogh Museum Maybe its time to see Tangiers A different life-style some different fears And maybe I should be Edinburgh In a kilt in Edinburgh Doin' a modern dance Doin' a modern dance Or maybe I should get a farm in Southern France Where the winds are wispy and the villagers dance And you and I we'd sleep beneath a moon Moon in June and sleep till noon And maybe you and I could fall in love Regain the spirit that we once had You'd let me hold you and touch the night That shines so bright, so bright with fright Doin' a modern dance Doin' a modern dance Shit, maybe I could go to Yucatan Where women are women, a man's a man Ah, no one confused, ever loses place With their place in the human race Maybe I'm not cut out for city life The smell of exhaust, the smell of strife And maybe you don't want to be a wife It's not a life being a wife Doin' a modern dance Doin' a modern dance So maybe I should go to Tanganyika Where the rivers run, down mountains tall and steep Or go to India to study chants And lose romance to a mantra's dance I need a guru, I need some law Explain to me the things we saw Why it always comes to this It's all downhill after the first kiss Maybe I should move to Rotterdam Maybe move to Amsterdam I should move to Ireland, Italy, Spain Afghanistan where there is no rain Or maybe I should just learn a modern dance Where roles are shifting the modern dance You never touch you don't know who you're with This week, this month, this time of year This week, this month, this time of year Doin' a modern dance You don't know who you're with modern dance I should move to Pakistan, go to Afghanistan Dance, you don't know who you're with Dance, you don't know who you're with Modern dance And maybe you don't want to be a wife It's not life being a wife Doin' a modern dance You never touch you don't know who you're with Dance, modern dance The roles are shifting dance You never touch you don't know who you're with Dance, modern dance Maybe you don't want to be a wife

"The Night Chicago Died" was written and recorded by the British group Paper Lace. They talk about Al Capone in the song, but got a lot of details wrong - understandable since they wrote it based on gangster movies.
The Four Tops' "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)" was written by the Motown team of Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland and Eddie Holland. The phrase "Sugar pie, honey bunch" was something Dozier's grandfather used to say when he was a kid.
