MAKE MY DAY, © Irene Bom, 2011 1. Gather round, gather round - meet the maestro He's got music up his sleeve Stick around for the oompah band Now's not the time to leave Chorus: Do yourself a favour Do yourself a favour: stay awhile. And do me a favour too If you stay, it'll make my day 2. Come inside, come inside - hold your questions Answers will come soon enough Step up on the dance floor: It's time to partner up. Chorus Bridge: If you need it take a seat and rest awhile Let the music wash over you and ease your mind You will feel better Chorus _______________________________________ Irene Bom: vocals, guitar Margriet van Overbeeke: vocals, drum, kazoo _______________________________________

LIFE'S LIKE THAT, © Irene Bom, 2011 1. I remember the day Charles and Diana got married My lover left me that morning and never came back. As it turns out the royal couple had no happy-ever-after either: Too mismatched Chorus: Life's like that, life's like that - it can catch you out Life's like that, life's like that But we do have our moments on life's merry-go-round (x2) 2. I read somewhere the dress took five hours to copy the dressmakers glued to the TV to trace the design What did it cost? Which couple bought it? Was it happy-ever-after walking down the aisle? Chorus Bridge: Not the dress, nor the kiss on the balcony not the photos in the press What I recall best of all are the slip-ups in the vows at St Paul's and my empty flat. Chorus _______________________________________ Irene Bom: vocals, guitar Margriet van Overbeeke: vocals, shaker _______________________________________

ON REPEAT (MISSING YOU), © Irene Bom, 2011 1. At least the sun still rises (on repeat) Burnt the toast this morning (on repeat) I'm not myself, have you noticed (on repeat) Should've listened to the weather on the radio (on repeat) Going through the motions but it feel all wrong Especially when they play our song Chorus: On repeat - can't eat, can't sleep On repeat - missing you 2. I brush my teeth as usual (on repeat) Take the dog out walking (on repeat) I feel the cold all the time now (on repeat) People ask how I am and I say I'm fine (on repeat) Going through the motions but the nights are tough How long before I've had enough? Chorus Bridge: Missing you on the pillow Missing you in my bones Missing you and your breath on my skin Missing you - it's agony Chorus _______________________________________ Irene Bom: vocals, guitar Margriet van Overbeeke: vocals, drum, kazoo _______________________________________

I WISH, © Irene Bom, 2012 1. This day belongs to the moon I wish, I wish I could see through the gloom But everythings's grey: This day belongs to the moon. 2. All year I've been wishing on stars I wish, I wish I was there where you are And I wish you were here: All year I've been wishing on stars 3. This life is riddled with holes I wish, I wish I didn't feel so cold Who will pull out the knife? This life is riddled with holes. Bridge: This day I'm hoping for sun I wish, I wish; I wish, I wish; I wish, I wish the dawn would come 4. This time I'm letting you go I wish, I wish there was a way to let you know I think I'll be fine. This time I'm letting you go I wish, I wish there was a way to let you know I think I'll be fine - I will be fine. It's time - I'm letting you go. _______________________________________ Irene Bom: vocals, guitar Margriet van Overbeeke: vocals, drum, kazoo _______________________________________

MR SPITZ, © Irene Bom, 2012 Chorus: He made his mark, that Mr Spitz Swimming, swimming like a fish First over the finish line Seven, yeah, seven times 1. He had a lovely smile and a chin to die for and seven gold medals for butterfly, butterfly and crawl. Chorus 2. Everything turned out fine He proved that he's no coward He took on all his rivals and made the crowd, made the crowd go wild. Chorus Bridge: Breaking world records, Shaving off seconds, Mr Spitz says, It's his friends he values the most in the end More than his seven gold medals Chorus _______________________________________ Irene Bom: vocals, guitar Margriet van Overbeeke: vocals, drum, kazoo _______________________________________
