ABBA poem


**Ring Ring**

hi Honey Honey!

–Mamma Mia!

You’re so hot, teasing me,

I Am Just A Girl.

I Have A Dream, you said,

I Saw It In The Mirror,

your Arrival, Cassandra.

I’ve Been Waiting For You

you’re my Dancing Queen,

My Love, My Life

Lay All Your Love On Me!

I’m Gonna Sing You My Lovesong

Take A Chance On Me

I can fill that Hole in Your Soul

–Oh Fernando, it was like When I Kissed the Teacher

Kisses Of Fire

I was Head Over Heels

We know that Lovers Live A Little Longer.

That’s Me,

a bit of a Tiger

You’re my Supertrouper, my Lovelight.

I Wonder, Voulez Vous?

–Oh, I Do I Do I Do I Do I Do

please Rock Me and Dance While the Music Still Goes On

together we’ll Pick A Bale Of Cotton On Top Of Old Smokey while ordering a Midnight Special

But then, Our Last Summer…

If It Wasn’t for the Night when The Visitors came.

You caught us Sitting In The Palmtree

in a Tropical Loveland — Me and Bobby and Bobby’s Brother

squabbling over Money Money Money.


What’s The Name Of The Game? you asked. You’d better Watch Out, you’re Under Attack!

Well Dum Dum Diddle I said,

I’ve heard all about you On and On and On with Elaine, Chiquitita and Nina Pretty Ballerina in Summernight City!

and What About Livingstone?

He Is Your Brother!

People Need Love, you blurted, he’s just the Man In The Middle

we treat each other The Way Old Friends Do

Sure I said, and I’m A Marionette!

You just want Two For The Price Of One.

All you ever say is Gimme Gimme Gimme You Owe Me One

now you’re Slipping Through My Fingers

Should I Laugh Or Cry?

Disillusion, that’s all I have.

Love Isn’t Easy but it sure is hard enough.

When All Is Said And Done The Winner Takes It All

but Why Did It Have To Be Me?

It’s a Crazy World.

A thing to remember, when we’re all alone …

One of Us is lonely, staring at the ceiling …

but Knowing Me, Knowing You

there is nothing we can do.

This is no time for cryin’

Move On

Another Town, Another Train

Next stop, Waterloo

So Long.
