Quotes[edit]

I've learned never to say never. You just don't know. But I've reached an age when you start taking it easier. But I enjoy singing. I still sing – at home.
It obviously does not matter from where you are in the world, if people love your music, it travels borders and captures hearts.
The international press are trying to create some sort of hysteria around ABBA that doesn't exist. They are trying to make a myth out of us.

Lyrics[edit]

Shine (1984)[edit]

  • Don't make me think
    This could be true
    Don't do it
    These lips so close
    Belong to who
    Don't do it
    • Don't Do It (written by Lyngstad) from Shine (1984)
  • So don't tell me the story of your life
    I'd rather watch the movie
    Your Hollywood smile is not enough
    You're giving me the blues
    So when are you going to understand
    I'm not the woman to make you a man
    • That's Tough (Non-album single credited to Lyngstad, Hans Fredriksson, and Kirsty MacColl), from Shine (1984)
