Tracklist

He Touched Me

length: 3:12
producer: Robert Mersey
conductor: Don Costa
vocal: Barbra Streisand
arranger: Don Costa
composer: Milton Schafer
lyricist: Ira Levin

He touched me, he put his hand near mine
And then he touched me
I felt a sudden tingle when he touched me
A sparkle, a glow

He knew it...it wasn’t accidental, no, he knew it
He smiled and seem to tell me so all through it
He knew it, I know...
He’s real, and the world is alive and shining
I feel such a wonderful drive t’wards valentining
He touched me; I simply have to face the fact
He touched me...
Control myself and try to act
As if I remember my name
But he touched me...he touched me...
And suddenly nothing is the same!
’cause he touched me...he touched me...
And suddenly...nothing, nothing, nothing is the same

The Shadow of Your Smile

length: 2:49
producer: Robert Mersey
conductor: Don Costa
vocal: Barbra Streisand
arranger: Don Costa
The shadow of your smile
When you have gone
Will color all my dreams
And light the dawn

Look into my eyes my love and see
All the lovely things you are to me

Our wistful little star
It was far, too high
A teardrop kissed your lips
And so did I

Now when I remember spring
All the joys that love can bring
I will be remembering
The shadow of your smile

Quiet Night

length: 2:27
producer: Robert Mersey
conductor: Peter Matz
vocal: Barbra Streisand
arranger: Peter Matz
Quiet night
And all around the calm and boring weather
Quiet night
No other sound, but hearts that beat together
You can almost hear the things I'm thinking
You can almost see my heart take flight...
Whisper low
But don't say no
It's such a quiet night!

I Got Plenty of Nothin'

length: 3:10
producer: Robert Mersey
conductor: Peter Matz
vocal: Barbra Streisand
arranger: Peter Matz
I got no lock on the door, that's the way to be
They can steal the rug from the floor
That's okay with me, 'cause the things that I prize
Like the stars in the skies they're all free
Oh, I got plenty of nothin', and nothin's plenty for me
I got no car, I got no mule, I got no misery!
The folks with plenty of plenty
They got a lock on their door
Afraid somebody is agoin' to rub 'em
While they're out there makin' more
What for?

I got no lock on the door
That's the way to be
They can steal the rug from the floor
That's okay with me cause the things that I prize
Like the stars in the skies, are all free
So, I got plenty of nothin', and nothin's plenty for me
I got the sun, i got the moon, I got the deep blue sea
The folks with plenty of plenty
All they got to pray all the day
Seems with plenty, you sure got to worry
How to keep the devil away
Keep them away

Oh, I'm never afraid about hell, till my time arrives
Never worry, never worry, long as I'm well
Never one to strive to be good, to be bad
What the hell, I'm just glad I'm alive!
Oh, I got plenty of nothin', and nothin's plenty for me
Got my man, got my love, and I, I got my song!

How Much of the Dream Comes True

length: 3:07
producer: Robert Mersey
conductor: Don Costa
vocal: Barbra Streisand
arranger: Don Costa
(J.Barry & T.Peacock)
There will be violins playing
Softly, somewhere, won't there?
I shall be flying through rainbows
Though I can't fly, shan't I?
And when he lowers his lips
To kiss me, surely
The world will be lost from view
How much of the dream comes true?
He'll be the prince
Out of every childhood story, surely
His arms could crush me
But he will hold me gently, won't he?
And as the dawn slowly opens one eye,
Won't I find life wonderful and new?
How much of the dream comes true?
How much of the dream comes true?

Second Hand Rose

length: 2:12
producer: Robert Mersey
conductor: Peter Matz
vocal: Barbra Streisand
arranger: Peter Matz
composer: James F. Hanley, James F. Hanley
lyricist: Grant Clarke, Grant Clarke
Father has a business strictly second hand
Everything from toothpicks to a baby-grand
Stuff in our apartment came from father's store
Even clothes I'm wearing someone wore before
It's no wonder that I feel abused
I never get a thing that ain't been used
I'm wearing second hand hats

Second hand clothes
That's why they call me
Second hand Rose
Even our piano in the parlor
Daddy bought for ten cents on the dollar
Second hand pearls
I'm wearing second hand curls

I never get a single think that's new
Even Jake, the plumber, he's a man I adore
He had the nerve to tell me he's been married before!
Everyone knows that I'm just
Second hand Rose
From Second Avenue!
From Second Avenue!

The Kind of Man a Woman Needs

length: 3:57
producer: Robert Mersey
conductor: Don Costa
vocal: Barbra Streisand
arranger: Don Costa
composer: Michael Leonard
lyricist: Herbert Martin
Handsome, no, my man ain’t handsome
But there’s a trace of a wondrous grace
In his weary face
Life has done it’s best to break him
But his strength and courage
Make him just the kind of man a woman needs
Tender, he ain’t always tender
But in his eyes something warm and wise
Lifts me to the skies
If his heart ain’t always showing
It’s a comfort just to know him
He’ s the kind of man a woman needs
Sometimes he’ll grow angry
At some foolish things I do
Than he’ll forgive to spare me pain
Times he’ll know I’m troubled
So he’ll laugh to cheer me through
Till my heart is light
As summer rain...mmm...
No, my man ain’t youthful
That time’s gone by
But his head is high
And his dreams won’t die
Though he’s had his share of sorrow
He looks forward to tomorrow
He’s the kind of man a woman needs
He’s the kind of man a woman needs...

All That I Want

length: 3:52
producer: Robert Mersey
conductor: Peter Matz
vocal: Barbra Streisand
arranger: Peter Matz
I want a gown of diamonds
Long gloves and sweet perfumes
Hats made of silks and satins
Seaqueens and ostrich plums
I want to wear mascara
Polish my nails real bright
I want to be an actress
Actresses play all night
If I should sneeze it’s a sign
All that I want to will be mine
Oh please, pretty, please
Dear nose make me sneeze
I want to find my true love
Like all the love songs say
I want to do what I want
I want to get my way
Wild dreams grow wise
When sweet childhood flies
Time waved a hand
And the breeze blue the sand from my eyes
I want a gown of kingdom
Diamonds would weigh me down
Pompoms and plums are pretty
If you’re a circus clown
Funny how black mascara
Streaks when the tears begin
Nail polish, rouge and powder
Can’t paint the sparkle in
Once I was slaved to a sneeze
Now sneezing is just a disease
A rose is a rose
And a nose just a nose
True love’s a phrase for love songs
Real love’s a leaving thing
I want the love worth living
I want the things I sing
I want the love worth living
I want the things I sing

Where's That Rainbow?

length: 3:42
producer: Robert Mersey
conductor: Peter Matz
vocal: Barbra Streisand
arranger: Peter Matz
Troubles really are bubbles they say
And I'm bubbling over today
Spring brings roses to people you see
But it brings hay fever to me
My luck will vary surely
That's purely a curse
My luck has changed
Yes, it gotten
From rotten
To worse

Where's that rainbow they sing about
Where's that lining they cheer about
Where's that love nest where love is
King ever after

Where's that blue room they sing about
Where's that sunshine they fling about
I know morning will come but
Pardon my laughter

In each scenario you can depend
On the end where the lovers agree
Where's that Lothario where does he roam
With his dome Vaselined as can be

It is easy to see alright
Everything's gonna be alright
Be just dandy for everybody but me

In each scenario you can depend
On the end where the lovers agree
Where's that Lothario where does he roam
With his dome Vaselined as can be

It is easy to see alright
Everything's gonna be alright
Be just dandy for everybody but me

Oh yeah, I see that rainbow
For everybody
But me

No More Songs for Me

length: 2:56
producer: Robert Mersey
conductor: Don Costa
vocal: Barbra Streisand
arranger: Don Costa
No more soft tears blindly shed
No more soft words blithely said
No more the soft hope in time we'd wed
No more songs for me

Love was life though my heart plead
Love was fooled and my heart fed
Love was my water, my fire, my bread
No more songs for me

No more strong arms, warmly spread
No more strong wine warm and red
No more the strong one, who warmed my bed

No more songs for me
No more songs for me
