You've got to get up every morning With a smile in your face
And show the world all the love in your heart
The people gonna treat you better
You're gonna find, yes you will
That you're beautiful as you feel
Waiting at the station with a workday wind a-blowing
I've got nothing to do but watch the passers-by
Mirrored in their faces I see frustration growing
And they don't see it showing, why do I?
You've got to get up every morning With a smile in your face
And show the world all the love in your heart
The people gonna treat you better
You're gonna find, yes you will
That you're beautiful as you feel
I have often asked myself for reason for sadness
In a world where tears are just a lullaby
If there's any answer, maybe love can end the madness
Maybe not, oh, but we can only try
You've got to get up every morning With a smile in your face
And show the world all the love in your heart
The people gonna treat you better
You're gonna find, yes you will
That you're beautiful as you feel

Love is real
Real is love
Love is feeling
Feeling love
Lave is wanting to be loved

Love is touch
Touch is love
Love is reaching
Reaching love
Love is asking to be loved

Love is you
You and me
Love is knowing
We can be
Love is free
Free is love
Love is living
Living love
Love is needing
To be loved
Hum, hum

Wanting you the way I do
I only want to be with you
And I would go
To the ends of the earth
'Cause darling
To me that's what you're worth

Where you lead, I will follow
Anywhere that you tell me to
If you need, you need me to be with you
I will follow where you lead

If you're out on the road
Feeling lonely, and so cold
All you have to do is call my name
And I'll be there on the next train

Where you lead, I will follow
Anywhere that you tell me to
If you need, you need me to be with you
I will follow where you lead

I always wanted a real home with flowers on the window sill
But if you want to live in New York City, honey, you know I will
I never thought I could get satisfaction from just one man
If anyone can keep me happy, you're the one who can

Where you lead, I will follow
Anywhere that you tell me to
If you need, you need me to be with you
I will follow where you lead

Where you lead, I will follow
Anywhere that you tell me to
If you need, you need me to be with you
I will follow where you lead

I'm gonna follow where you lead...
I will follow, I will follow...

I Never Meant to Hurt You

length: 3:50
arranger: Dick Hazard
vocal: Barbra Streisand
conductor: Dick Hazard
composer: Laura Nyro
lyricist: Laura Nyro
I never meant to hurt you
I'm not that way at all
Please believe the words of the heart
A heart that seems so small
And I swear I never meant to hurt you
I guess I lost my place
Please, believe the wards of the heart
A heart that hides its fails

Why do I do things
I never mean to do?
Oh, why did I speak so carelessly
When all that i felt
Was love for you?

And I swear I never
I never meant to hurt you
I've got to make you know
Please, believe the words of the heart
A heart that didn't show
I never meant to hurt you
I only meant to love you
It's true
And when I saw you crying
I cried too

One Less Bell to Answer / A House Is Not a Home

length: 6:32
arranger: Kenny Welch
vocal: Barbra Streisand
composer: Burt Bacharach, Burt Bacharach, Burt Bacharach
lyricist: Hal David, Hal David, Hal David
orchestrator: Peter Matz
One less bell to answer
One less egg to fry
One less man to pick up after
I should be happy
But all I do is cry
Cry, cry, no more laughter / Oh, I should be happy
Oh, why did he go?
I only know that since he left
My life's so empty
Thought I try to forget
It just can't be done
Each time the doorbell rings
I still run
I don't know how in the world
To stop thinking of him / I should be happy
Cause I still love him so
I end each day the way I start out / I start and end each day crying
Crying my heart out
One less bell to answer
One less egg to fry
One less man to pick up after
No more laughter
No more love
Since he went away
Since he went away
A chair is still a chair
Even when there's no one sitting there
But a chair is not a house
And a house is not a home
When there's no one there
To hold you tight
And no one there
You can kiss goodnight
A room is still a room
Even when there's nothing there but gloom
But a room is not a house
And a house is not a home
When the two of us are far apart
And one of us has a broken heart
Now and then I call your name
And suddenly your face appears
But it's just a crazy game
And when it ends
It ends in tears
So darling, have a heart
Don't let one mistake keep us apart
I'm not meant to live alone
Turn this house into a home
When I climb the stair and turn the key
Oh, please be there
Still in love with me
One less bell to answer / Each time the doorbell rings, I still run
One less egg to fry / I'm lucky I've got one less man
One less man / to pick up after
No more laughter
No more love
Since he went away
Since he went away
All I do is cry.

Once while traveling across the sky
This lovely planet caught my eye
Being curios I flew close by
And now I'm caught here till I die

Till we die
Until we die
Learnin' to live together
Learnin' to live together
Learnin' to live together
Until we die

Lost my memories of where I've been
We've all forgotten we could fly
One day we'll all change into peaceful men
And we'll return to the sky

Until we die
Until we die
Learnin' to live together
Learnin' to live together
Learnin' to live together
Until we die

Until we die
Oh until we die
Learnin' to live together
Learnin' to live together
Learnin' to live together
Learnin' to live together
Learnin' to live together
To live together
To live together
To live together
To live together

Since I Fell for You

engineer: John Arrias
co-producer: John Arrias
vocal: Barbra Streisand
lyricist: Buddy Johnson
composer: Buddy Johnson
When you just give love
And never get love
You'd better let love depart
I know it's so
And yet i know
I can't get you out of my heart
You may leave my happy home
You took my love and now you're gone
Since i fell for you
Love brings such misery and pain
I guess it'll never be the same
Since i fell for you
Well, it's too bad
And it's too sad
But I'm in love with you
You love me
You love me then you snub me
But what can i do?
I'm still
I'm still
I'm still in love with you
I guess I'll never see the light
I get the blues most every night
Since i fell for you
Since i fell for you...

Mother

composer: John Lennon
lyricist: John Lennon
Mother you had me
But I never had you
I wanted you
But you didn't want me
So I, I just got to tell you
Goodbye
Goodbye
Father you I left me
But I never left you
I needed you
You didn't need me
So I, I just got to tell you
I gotta tell you
Goodbye
Goodbye
Children don't do
What I have done
I couldn't walk
But I tried to run
So I, I just got to tell you
Goodbye
Goodbye
Mamma don't go
Daddy come home
Mamma don't go
Daddy come home
Mamma don't go
Daddy come home
Mamma don't go
Daddy come home
Mamma don't go
Daddy come home...

The Summer Knows

length: 3:43
arranger: Dick Hazard
vocal: Barbra Streisand
conductor: Dick Hazard
lyricist: Marilyn Bergman, Alan Bergman
composer: Michel Legrand
The summer smiles, the summer knows
And unashamed she sheds her clothes,
The summer smoothes the restless sky
And lovingly she warms the sand
On which you lie

The summer knows, the summer's wise,
She sees the doubts within your eyes
And so she takes her summertime
Tells the moon to wait and the sun to linger
Twists the world round her summer finger
Lets you see the wonder of it all

And if you've learned your lesson well
There's little more for her to tell
One last caress
It's time to dress
For Fall.

And if you've learned your lesson well
There's little more for her to tell
One last caress
It's time to dress
For Fall.

I Mean to Shine

length: 2:54
vocal: Barbra Streisand
writer: Donald Fagen, Walter Becker
Here comes another dawn
For every child to see
This time the morning sun
Is burning just for me
I've got the skyward eyes
Like I've never had before
Just smile and say goodbye

Show me to the door
For every one there comes a precious time
To break away
I mean to shine
Oh, I mean to shine
As I look at all the morning sun
I know I mean to shine

This day I realized
The world I knew is gone
New seasons come and change
The crown that stood upon
I've been afraid to feel
And scared of falling free
You said so I'm real
It seemed so clear to me
For everyone who breathes
There comes a time to fly away

I mean to shine
0h, I mean to shine
As I look at all the morning sun
I know I mean to shine
For everyone who breathes

There comes a time
To break away
I mean to shine
Oh, I mean to shine
As I look at all morning sun
I know I mean to shine.

You've Got a Friend

length: 4:56
vocal: Barbra Streisand
composer: Carole King
lyricist: Carole King
When you're down and troubled
And you need a helping hand
And nothing, nothing is going right
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest night

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there
You've got a friend

If the sky above you
Grows dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind begins to blow
Keep you head together
And call my name out loud
Soon you'll hear me knocking at you door

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there

Ain't it good to know that you've got a friend
When people can be so cold
They'll hurt you, and desert you
And take your soul if you let them

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there
You've got a friend
You've got a friend

Ain't it good to know you've got a friend
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend
