PRODUCED BY MANUEL ESPARZA




RUNAWAY
Written by Sunny Ozuna

My babys gone and I'm alone
Left me by myself on my own
So with tears in my eyes forgetting my pride
I can't stop this pain
So I'll run and I'll hide
Runaway, runaway
Runaway, runaway
I'll pretend to forget about all
Though I know it's a mistake
But I'll be there at your fall
'Cause love must have its way
Then my tears will be dry
And this loving inside
Will make me feel like I should run and hide
Runaway, runaway, gone away, gone away
Yes I will be there cause our love will mend
But please don't ever hurt me again
Runaway, runaway, gone away, gone away
Oh! Tell me that cha love me that cha love nobody else
And that you cross your heart
My friends tell me
You could never belong to me
So I'll smile for my friends and cry later
I'm gonna smile for my friends and cry later
I wouldn't be crying if I didn't love you so
I'll smile for my friends and cry later
I'll smile for my friends and cry later, yeah
Smile for my friends and cry later for you


CRUISING DOWN THE BOULEVARD
Written By Manuel Esparza

Cruising down the boulevard
Looking firme and looking hard
I lost my baby now I'm trying to find
A babydoll to spend a little time
Cruising down the boulevard

I've got my rolas jammin' loud
With Brenton Wood it's only me and you
Mary Wells who really loves you too

Cruising down the boulevard
Looking firme and looking hard
Checkout the homies justa cruising on by
With Jimmy Reed their locoits tonight

Cruising down the boulevard
Cruising down the boulevard

I see some hynas justa looking so fine
Here we are riding side by side
Cruising down the boulevard
Looking firme and looking hard

I lost my baby now I'm trying to find
A babydoll to spend a little time

Cruising down the boulevard
Cruising down the boulevard
Cruising down the boulevard
Cruising down the boulevard

I've got my rolas jammin' loud
With Brenton Wood it's only me and you
Mary Wells who really loves you too
Thee Midniters play our favorite song
Baby don't cha feel so sad tonight
Cause I'll make you feel good, oh baby yeah
I'll make you feel so good, oh baby yeah
I'll make you feel good, oh baby yeah
I'll make you feel so good, oh baby yeah
I'll make you feel good, oh baby yeah
I'll make you feel so good, oh baby yeah

Cruising down the boulevard
Looking firme and looking hard
The town I live in is miles away
Lets turn the corner get it on today
Cause I'll make you feel good, oh baby yeah
I'll make you feel so good, oh baby yeah
I'll make you feel good, oh baby yeah
I'll make you feel so good, oh baby yeah
I'll make you feel good, oh baby yeah

Cruising down the boulevard

DO YOU REMEMBER
Written By Gabriel Lopez

Do you remember?
The fella you left a year ago?
Do you remember?
The fella you left him crying so
No it wasn't him
No it wasn't them at all
Do you remember?
That poor guy you said you loved him so
Do you remember?
You just didn't know why instead you let him go
Lent him your heart and soul
Made him a simple fool
You were his only, only girl
He gave you his heart full of love
You are the one he thinks of
Sweet tender love for a terrible time
Goodbye
Do you remember?
That fella you guess that it was me
Do you remember?
This fella could cry can't you see
Lent him your heart and soul
Made him a simple fool
You were his only, only girl


CRIED ENOUGH FOR YOU
Written by Manuel Esparza

Cried enough for you, girl
Cried enough for you, yeah
Cried enough tears that I'm gonna cry
And baby this song's for you!
My world was dark
My heart was empty too
That's when this little angel said
Manuel I gotta talk with you
You got to let her go
You got to set her free
For if you can't love yourself
You can't love me
Don't you know I
Cried enough for you, girl
Cried enough for you, yeah
I cried enough tears that I'm gonna cry
And baby this song's for you!

I shedded some tears along my lonely way
But now that I'm back I just wanna say
That I cried enough for you, girl
Cried enough for you, yeah
Cried enough tears that I'm gonna cry
And baby this song's for you!

My luck was running low
Until I saw the light I knew which way not to go And you know that I was right
You'll never change so baby don't cha try
Just think of the good times
That we left behind

Don't you know I cried enough for you, girl
Cried enough for you, yeah
Cried enough tears that I'm gonna cry
And baby this song's for you!

Don't you know I cried enough for you, girl
Cried enough for you, yeah
Cried enough tears that I'm gonna cry
And baby this song's for you!

Don't you know I cried enough for you, girl
Cried enough for you, yeah
Cried enough tears that I'm gonna cry
And baby this song's for you!


HEY LOVE aka Perfia
Traditional w/new lyrics by Manuel Esparza

Hey love
If you could have a talk with God
Please tell him too forgive my sins
And let me back in your heart
Hey love I'm wondering just where are you
Weither your near or far
Let me back in your heart
Too see, to see reflections of my heart
Though many times it has'em me cry
I'm grateful that's of your love
I've been searching everywhere I go
And I could find you there
And for what are your good kisses if your lips
Don't want to kiss mine
Hey love so close to my carozon
The many times you've seen 'en me cry
I'm crying for your love
I've been searching everywhere I go
And I could find you there
And for what are your good kisses if your lips
Don't want to kiss mine
Hey love so close to my carozon
The many times you've seen 'en me cry
I'm crying for your love


96 TEARS
Written by Rudy Martinez

Too many teardrops for one heart
To be crying
Too many teardrops for one heart
To carry on
You're way on top now
Since you've left me
But watch out now
I'm gonna get there
We'll be together for just a little while
And then I'm gonna put you way down here
And you'll start crying 96 tears
Cry, cry
And when the sun comes up I'll be on top
You be right down there looking up
And on my way you'll come up here
And I don't see you wavin' bye
I'll wait right here wondering why
I'm gonna get to you but I know now
I'll just cry, cry
I'll just cry
Too many teardrops for one heart
To be crying
Too many teardrops for one heart
To carry on
You're gonna cry 96 tears
You're gonna cry, cry-cry, cry
96 tears


THAT'S FIRME
Written by Manuel Esparza

Cruising through the park on a summers day
Hey that's firme
Listening to the sounds of thee Midniters play
Hey that's firme
Checking out all the rides
Cruising through the park side by side
The Town I Live In is blasting loud
All the baby dolls are checking me out
That's firme, oh that's firme
The sun comes down and off we go
Hey that's firme
Cruising down the boulevard in my '64
Hey that's firme
Mmm you're looking good like a baby doll should
Cruising with your homegirls from your neighborhood
I just wanna stop and say Q-vo babydoll, I di yvo
And then you smile
That's firme, oh! That's firme
Nothing in this world can keep us apart
You're my babydoll my queen of my heart
Mmm you're looking good like a babydoll should
Cruising with your homegirls from your neighborhood
That's firme, oh! That's firme
Me loving you and you loving me, that's firme
Whoohoo I love you, I love you, I love you, that's firme
You loving me and me loving you, that's firme
Woohoo I love you, I love you, I love you, that's firme, so firme
I love you, I love you, I love you
Babygirl, that's firme, that's firme


ALONE WITHOUT YOU
Written By Manuel Esparza

I remember when you said goodbye
Oh, I remember now how I cried
I don't want to be alone
I don't want to be alone
I don't want to be alone without you
The tears started to fall
When my mother said
Son don't you cry
One day the girl will come along
And you'll smile for me once again
So don't you cry she said
But I kept on crying and saying
I don't want to be alone without you

Whoo hoo hoo
I don't want to be alone
I don't want to be alone
No I don't want to be alone without you

Alone without you
Alone without you
Woo alone without you
Without you oh no

Alone without you
Alone without you
Oh I don't want to be alone
Without you, oh no

Alone without you
Alone without you
