Hi! Over the summer, i bought the crown jewels collection (which is absolutely amazing, by the way) and if you have it or know about it, you will know that there is a booklet with all of the lyrics from those discs inside. As i was reading through, i noticed that some of the lyrics written in there are different than in the actual song. For exaplme, Seaside Rendezvous in the booklet is written "Meanwhile, I ask you to be my Clementine/ You say you'd have to tell your daddy if you can? I love you madly..." and at the end "Meantime- I ask to be my Valentine/ You say you do if you did but you daren't/ I'll be your Valentino". I was merely wondering if maybe this was the way the songs were originally written and then changed maybe during the recording? Also, why aren't the lyrics to "Mustapha" printed in the book? Thanks!

Love is still the answer, take my hand...
