        Some kinds of love
        ah, Marguerita told Tom
        Between thought and expression
        lies a lifetime
        Situations arise
        because of the weather
        And no kinds of love
        are better than others

        Some kinds of love
        ah, Marguerita told Tom
        Like a dirty French novel, ooohhh
        the absurd courts the vulgar
        And some kinds of love
        the possibilities are endless
        And for me to miss one
        would seem to be groundless
        mmmm.. la-dee-ta-ta-ta

        I heard what you said
        ah, Marguerita heard Tom
        And of course you're a bore
        but in that you're not charmless
        For a bore what is a straight line, ah
        that finds a wealth in division
        And some kinds of love, ooohhh
        are mistaken for vision
        la-dee-ta-ta-ta, ooohhh yeah

        Mmmm.. put jelly on your shoulder
        let us do what you fear most
        That from which you recoil, ooohhh
        but which still makes your eyes moist
        Ooohhh, put jelly on your shoulder
        lie down upon the carpet
        Between thought and expression
        let us now kiss the culprit
        mmmm.. la-la-ta-ta

        I don't know just what it's all about
        Ooohhh, put on your red pajamas and find out
        Mmmm.. oh, la-dee-ta-ta-ta
        Mmmm.. la-dee-ta-ta-ta
        Mmmm..

        Hey, some kinds of love
        now Marguerita told Tom
        Well of course, baby, you're a bore
        but at that you're not charmless
        Because a bore is a straight line
        finds a wealth in division
        And no kinds of love
        mistaken for vision
        la-dee-ta

        Some kinds of love
        now Marguerita told Tom
        They turn to division
        woh baby, you're not charming
        Oh baby, now some kinda love

        And no kinds of love
        mistaken for vision
        Put jelly on your shoulder
        oh baby, lie down upon the carpet
        Put jelly on your shoulder
        let's do what you fear most
        That from which you recoil
        but still makes your eyes moist
        Put jelly, baby, on your shoulder
        lie down, now baby, on the carpet, ooohhh
        Ooohhh-ooohhh, ooohhh
        ooohhh-ooohhh-ooohhh, ooohhh-ooohhh

        Well some kinds of love
        they're mistaken for vision

        Well I don't know, baby, what it's all about
        Woh little baby, why don't you come back
        hey, la-dee-ta-ta-ta
        Oh no Lord, ta-li-ta-li-sha
        oh now baby, la-dee-ta-ta
        Oh baby, la-dee-ta, la-ti-ta-ti-ta

        Some kinds of love
        Marguerita told Tom
        Between thought and expression
        lies a lifetime
        Situations evolve
        because of the weather
        And no kinds of love
        are better than others
        oh, la-dee-ta-ta-ta

        Some kinds of love
        Marguerita heard Tom
        You're like a dirty French novel
        when the absurd courts the vulgar
        And baby, some kinds of love
        possibilities -
        - Are endless, and for me to miss one
        would seem to be groundless
        la-dee-ta-ta-ta

        Marguerita told Tom
        Of course you're a bore
        but in that you're not charmless
        'Cause a bore is a straight line
        that finds a wealth in di-

        is a, ah, is, is a mistaken for vision, la-dee

        and still makes your eye-eye-eyes moist
        Put jelly on your shoulder
        lie down -
        - Upon the carpet, between thought and expression
        let us now kiss the culprit
        ooohhh la-dee-ta-ta-ta

Just a minor correction for the lyrics of "Some Kinda Love".

In the second verse it's
"Like a dirty French novel/Combines the absurd with the vulgar"

and in the third verse it says
"'Cause a bore is a straight liner/That finds a wealth in division".

just thought id throw in a correction or two.
in your lyric transcription
you have used the 'closet' mix of 'Some Kinda Love';
this would be fine for the rest of the album,
but that song is actually a different take,
and the lyrics in the 'clean' Valentin mix
(which is what most people have) are quite different.
Personally I prefer the Valentin version,
but perhaps you should include both the lyrics to the Valentin mix
and the 'closet' mix.
Here are the revised, correct lyrics
for the more common Valentin mix:



Some kinds of love
ah, Margarita told Tom
Between thought and expression
lies a lifetime
Situations arise
because of the weather
And no kinds of love
are better than others

Some kinds of love
Margarita told Tom
Like a dirty French novel
Combines the absurd with the vulgar
In some kinds of love
the possibilities are endless
And for me to miss one
would seem to be groundless

I heard what you said
ah, Margarita heard Tom
And of course you're a bore
but in that you're not charmless
'Cos a bore what is a straight liner
that finds a wealth in division
And some kinds of love, ooohhh
are mistaken for vision
la-dee-ta-ta-ta, ooohhh, all right

Put jelly on your shoulder
let us do what you fear most
That from which you recoil
but which still makes your eyes moist
Put jelly on your shoulder baby
lie down upon the carpet
Between thought and expression, uh
let us now kiss the culprit, move it on

I don't know just what it's all about
(I'll tell you something)
But put on your red pajamas and find out
Mmm, mmm, mmm
(Oooh, put it on
Long long time)
