I've Got the Girl

length: 2:48

Muddy Water

length: 3:13
Dixie moonlight, Swanee shore,
Headed home bound just once more
To my Mississippi Delta home.

Southland has that grand garden spot,
Although, you believe it or not,
I hear those breezes a-whispering, "Come on back to me!".

Muddy water round my feet,
Muddy water in the street,
Just Gods don't shelter
Down on the Delta!

Muddy water in my shoes,
Reelin' and rockin' to them low-down blues,
They live in comfort and ease down there,
I do declare!

Been away
A year today,
to wander and roam;
I don't care
It's muddy there,
But see, it's my home!

Got my toes turned Dixie way,
Round the Delta let me lay,
My heart cries out for muddy water!

Side by Side

length: 3:06
See that sun in the morning,
Peeking over the hill?
I'll bet you're sure it always has and sure it always will.
That's how I feel about someone,
How somebody feels about me.
We're sure we love each other
That's the way we'll always be.

Oh, we ain't got a barrel of money,
Maybe we're ragged and funny
But we'll travel along
Singing a song
Side by side.

Don't know what's comin' tomorrow
Maybe it's trouble and sorrow
But we'll travel the road
Sharing our load
Side by side.

Through all kinds of weather
What if the sky should fall?
Just as long as we're together,
It doesn't matter at all.
When they've all had their quarrels and parted

We'll be the same as we started
Just a-traveling along
Singing a song
Side by side.

We're all hunting for something
Something we don't know what
'Cause none of us are satisfied with things we know we've got.
We all forget about moonlight,
As soon as we've given our vow
But we'd all be so happy if we'd start and sing right now:

Oh, we ain't got a barrel of money,
Maybe we're ragged and funny
But we'll travel along
Singing a song
Side by side.

Don't know what's comin' tomorrow
Maybe it's trouble and sorrow
But we'll travel the road
Sharing our load
Side by side.

From Monday On

writer: Harry Barris, Bing Crosby
Every day was blue day,
'Til you loved me true,
Say, all my cares have run away!

(Scatting)
From Monday on
My cares are over,
From Monday on
I'll be in clover;
We picked on Monday
Because it's wash day,
And we'll wash
Our blues away.
From Monday on
The skies'll look bright;
Don't tell me different,
I know I'm right!
I'm gonna start shoutin', "Hey, hey!"
When he says, "Love, honor and obey;"
I'll be happy
From Monday on!

Mississippi Mud

length: 3:13
writer: Harry Barris, James Cavanaugh
When the sun goes down, the tide goes out,
The people gather 'round and they all begin to shout,
"Hey! Hey! Uncle Dud,
It's a treat to beat your feet on the Mississippi Mud.
It's a treat to beat your feet on the Mississippi Mud".

What a dance do they do!
Lordy, how I'm tellin' you
They don't need no band
They keep time by clappin' their hand
Just as happy as a cow chewin' on a cud,
When the people beat their feet on the Mississippi Mud.

Lordy, how they play it!
Goodness, how they sway it!
Uncle Joe, Uncle Jim,
How they pound the mire with vigor and vim!
Joy! that music thrills me!
Boy! it nearly kills me!
What a show when they go!
Say! they beat it up either fast or slow.

When the sun goes down, the tide goes out,
The people gather 'round and they all begin to shout,
"Hey! Hey! Uncle Dud,
It's a treat to beat your feet on the Mississippi Mud.
It's a treat to beat your feet on the Mississippi Mud".

What a dance do they do!
Lordy, how I'm tellin' you
They don't need no band
They keep time by clappin' their hand.
Just as happy as a cow chewin' on a cud.
When the people beat their feet on the Mississippi Mud.

'Tain't So, Honey, 'Tain't So

length: 2:49
orchestra: Paul Whiteman and His Orchestra
writer: Willard Robison

Hey, people, you should come to Arkansas
Meet a friend of mine, old Aunt Phoebe Law
She's known to everyone for miles around
She will help you when friends forsake you and troubles bear you down!
For those who come her way
Are blessed when they hear her say:

'Tain't so, honey, 'tain't so
Spoke to the Lord and the Lord said no
'Tain't so
Honey, 'tain't so

'Tain't so, honey, 'tain't so
Tomorrow will bring something good, I know
'Tain't so
I mean, it just ain't so

Makes no difference what your problem may be
Just look up, brother, and I'm sure you'll agree

'Tain't so, honey, 'tain't so
The Devil said yes, but the Lord said no
'Tain't so
Honey, 'tain't so

If I Had You

length: 3:14
I could show the world how to smile
I could be glad all of the while
I could change the grey skies to blues
If I had you
I could leave the old days behind
Leave all my pals, I'd never mind
I could start my life all a new
If I had you
I could climb the snow capped mountains
Sail the mighty ocean wide
I could cross the burning desert
If I had you by my side
I could be a king, dear, uncrowned
Humble or poor, rich or renowned
There is nothing I couldn't do
If I had you

I could show the world how to smile
I could be glad all of the while
I could change the grey skies to blues
If I had you
I could leave the old days behind
Leave all my pals, I'd never mind
I could start my life all a new
If I had you
I could climb the snow capped mountains
Sail the mighty ocean wide
I could cross the burning desert
If I had you by my side
I could be a king, dear, uncrowned
Humble or poor, rich or renowned
There is nothing I couldn't do

Can't We Be Friends?

length: 3:04
I thought I'd found the man of my dreams
Now it seems this is how the story ends
He's gonna turn me down and say
Can't we be friends?

I thought for once it couldn't go wrong
Not for long, I can see the way this ends
He's gonna turn me down and say
Can't we be friends?

Never again, through with love, through with men
They play the game without shame, and who's to blame?

I thought I'd found a man I could trust
What a bust, this is how the story ends
He's gonna turn me down and say
Can't we be friends?

Why should I care?
Though he gave me the air
Why should I cry, heave a sigh and wonder why?

I should have seen the signal to stop
What a flop, this is how the story ends
I'll let him turn me down and say
Can't we be friends?

Happy Feet

Happy feet, I've got those happy feet
Give them a low down beat
And they begin dancing
I've got those ten little tapping toes
And when they hear a tune
I can't control my dancing heels
To save my soul

Weary blues can't get into my shoes
Because my shoes refuse to ever grow weary
I keep cheerful on an earful of music sweet
'Cause I've got happ happ happy feet

Weary blues can't get in our shows
Because our shoes refuse to ever grow weary
We keep cheerful on an earful of music sweet
'Cause we've got happ happ happy
'Cause we've got happ happ happy feet
Feet!

You Brought a New Kind of Love to Me

length: 3:16
If a nightingale could sing like you
they'd sing much sweeter than they do,
For you've brought a new kind of love to me.

If the sandman brought me dreams of you
I?d want to sleep my whole life through,
For you've brought a new kind of love to me.

I know that I'm the slave, you're the queen,
But still you can understand that underneath it all
you're the maid and I am only a man.
I would work and slave The whole day through,
If I could hurry home to you,
For you've brought a new kind of love to me.

Three Little Words

length: 3:05
Three little words, oh what I'd give for that wonderful phrase,
To hear those three little words that's all I'd live for the rest of my days.
And what I feel in my heart, they tell sincerely.
No other words can tell it half so clearly.
Three little words, eight little letters which simply mean I love you.

I Surrender, Dear

length: 3:43
composer: Harry Barris
lyricist: Gordon Clifford
We've played the game of 'stay away'
But it costs more than I can pay
Without you I can't make my way
I surrender, dear.

I may seem proud and I may act gay
That's just a pose, I'm not that way.
Cause deep down in my heart I say,
I surrender, dear.

Those little mean things we were doing
Must have been part of the game
Lending a spice to the wooing
Oh, but I don't care who's to blame

When stars appear and shadows fall
Then you'll hear my poor heart call
To you my love, my life, my all
I surrender, dear

------ instrumental break ------

Oh, to you my love, my life, my all
I surrender, dear

Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams (And Dream Your Troubles Away)

length: 3:26
Carolina
Gave me Dinah;
I'm the proudest one
Beneath the Dixie sun.

News is spreadin'
'Bout our weddin';
I hear church bells ringin',
Here's the song my heart keeps singin':

Dinah,
Is there anyone finer
In the state of Carolina?
If there is and you know her,
Show her!

Dinah,
With her Dixie eyes blazin',
How I love to sit and gaze in
To the eyes of Dinah Lee!

Yet, every night,
My, how I shake with fright,
Because my Dinah might,
Change her mind about me!

But if Dinah,
Ever wandered to China,
I would hop an ocean liner,
Just to be with Dinah Lee!

Dinah,
Is there anyone finer
In the state of Carolina?
If there is and you know her,
Show her!

Dinah,
With her Dixie eyes blazin',
How I love to sit and gaze in
To the eyes of Dinah Lee!

Yet, every night,
My, how I shake with fright,
Because my Dinah might,
Change her mind about me!

But if Dinah,
Ever wandered to China,
I would hop an ocean!,
Just to be with Dinah Lee!

Just a Gigolo

length: 3:24
Was in a Paris cafe that first I found him
He was a Frenchman, a hero of the war
But war was over
And here's how peace had crowned him
A few cheap medals to wear and nothing more
Now every night in the same cafe he shows up
And as he strolls by ladies hear him say
If you admire me, hire me
A gigolo who knew a better day

Just a gigolo, everywhere I go
People know the part I'm playing
Paid for every dance
Selling each romance
Every night some heart betraying
There will come a day
Youth will pass away
Then what will they say about me
When the end comes I know
They'll say just a gigolo
As life goes on without me

Just a gigolo, everywhere I go
People know the part I'm playing
Paid for every dance
Selling each romance
Every night some heart betraying
There will come a day
Youth will pass away
Then what will they say about me
When the end comes I know
They'll say just a gigolo
As life goes on without me

Out of Nowhere

length: 3:09
lead vocals: Bing Crosby
lyricist: Edward Heyman
composer: Johnny Green
You came to me from out of nowhere,
You took my heart and found it free.
Wonderful dreams, wonderful schemes from nowhere
Made every hour sweet as a flower for me.

If you should go back to your nowhere,
Leaving me with a memory,
I'll always wait for your return out of nowhere,
Hoping you'll bring your love to me.

Just One More Chance

length: 3:17
composer: Arthur Johnston
lyricist: Sam Coslow
Just one more chance
To prove it's you alone I care for
Each night I say a little prayer for
Just one more chance

Just one more night
To taste the kisses that enchant me
I'd want no others if you'd grant me
Just one more chance

I've learned the meaning of repentance
Now you're the jury at my trial
I know that I should serve my sentence
Still, I'm hoping all the while
You'll give me

Just one more word
I said that I was glad to start out
But now I'm back to cry my heart out
For just one more chance

We spend our lives in groping for happiness
I found it once and tossed it aside
I paid for it with hours of loneliness
I've nothing to hide
I'd bury my pride for...
(mmm-bo-ba-ba-boo)
Just one more chance
(mmm-bo-ba-ba-boo)
Just one more chance

I've learned the meaning of repentance
Now you're the jury at my trial
I know that I should serve my sentence
Still, I'm hoping all the while
You'll give me

Just one more word
I said that I was glad to start out
But now I'm back to cry my heart out
For just one more chance

I'm Through With Love

length: 3:16
I have given you my true love,
But you love a new love.
What am I supposed to do now
With you now, you're through?
You'll be on your merry way
And there's only this to say:
I'm through with love
I'll never fall again.
Said adieu to love
Don't ever call again.
For I must have you or no one
And so I'm through with love.
I've locked my heart
I'll keep my feelings there.
I have stocked my heart
With icy, frigid air.
And I mean to care for no one
Because I'm through with love.
Why did you lead me
To think you could care?
You didn't need me
For you had your share
Of slaves around you
To hound you and swear
With deep emotion and devotion to you.
Goodbye to spring and all it meant to me
It can never bring the thing that used to be.
For I must have you or no one
And so I'm through with love.
Why did you lead me
To think you could care?
You didn't need me for you had your share
Of slaves around you to hound you and swear
With deep emotion and devotion to you.
Goodbye to spring and all it meant to me
It can never bring the thing that used to be.
For I must have you or no one
And so I'm through with love.

I Found a Million Dollar Baby (In a Five and Ten Cent Store)

length: 3:04
composer: Harry Warren
lyricist: Billy Rose, Mort Dixon
It was a lovely April shower,
It was a most convenient door,
I found a million dollar baby
In a five and ten cent store.
The rain continued for an hour
I hung around for three or four
Around the million dollar baby
In the five and ten cent store.

She was selling china
And when she made those eyes,
I kept buying china
Until the crowd got wise.

Incidentally,
If you should run into a shower,
Well step inside my cottage door,
And meet the million dollar baby
From the five and ten cent store

Love comes along like a popular song
Anytime or anywhere at all,
Rain or sunshine,
Spring or fall.
Say, you'll never know when it may say hello
In a very unexpected place,
For example, take my case.

[Repeat]

Dancing in the Dark

length: 2:28
composer: Arthur Schwartz
lyricist: Howard Dietz
Dancing in the dark Till the tune ends,
We're dancing in the dark and it soon ends,
We're waltzing in the wonder of why we're here,
Time hurries by, we're here and gone;

Looking for the light of a new love,
To brighten up the night, I have you love,
And we can face the music together,
Dancing in the dark.

Where the Blue of the Night (Meets the Gold of the Day)

length: 2:54
Where the blue of the night meets the gold of the day,
Someone waits for me.
And the gold of her hair crowns the blue of her eyes,
Like a halo tenderly.

If only I could see her,
Oh, how happy I would be.
Where the blue of the night meets the gold of the day,
Someone waits for me.

St. Louis Blues

length: 4:33
composer: William Christopher Handy
lyricist: William Christopher Handy
I hate to see that evening sun go down,
I hate to see that evening sun go down,
'Cause my lovin' baby done left this town.

If I feel tomorrow, like I feel today,
If I feel tomorrow, like I feel today,
I'm gonna pack my trunk and make my getaway.

Oh, that St. Louis woman, with her diamond rings,
She pulls my man around by her apron strings.
And if it wasn't for powder and her store-bought hair,
Oh, that man of mine wouldn't go nowhere.

I got those St. Louis blues, just as blue as I can be,
Oh, my man's got a heart like a rock cast in the sea,
Or else he wouldn't have gone so far from me.

I love my man like a schoolboy loves his pie,
Like a Kentucky colonel loves his rocker and rye
I'll love my man until the day I die, Lord, Lord.

I got the St. Louis blues, just as blue as I can be, Lord, Lord!
That man's got a heart like a rock cast in the sea,
Or else he wouldn't have gone so far from me.

I got those St. Louis blues, I got the blues, I got the blues, I got the blues,
My man's got a heart like a rock cast in the sea,
Or else he wouldn't have gone so far from me, Lord, Lord!

Sweet Georgia Brown

length: 3:03
lyricist: Kenneth Casey
composer: Ben Bernie, Maceo Pinkard
She just got here yesterday,
Things are hot here now they say,
There's a new gal in town.
Gals are jealous, there's no doubt.
All the guys just rave about
Sweet, Sweet Georgia Brown.
And ever since she came, the common folks all claim, say

No gal made has got a shade on Sweet Georgia Brown.
Two left feet, but oh, so neat has Sweet Georgia Brown.
They all sigh and wanna die for Sweet Georgia Brown,
I'll tell you just why, you know I don't lie (not much!).
It's been said she knocks 'em dead when she lands in town.
Since she came why it's a shame how she's cooled 'em down.
Fellas that she can't get must be fellas that she ain't met.
Georgia claimed her, Georgia named her, Sweet Georgia Brown.

All you gals will get the blues,
All you pals will surely lose.
And, there's but one excuse.
Now I've told you who she was,
And I've told you what she does,
Still, give this gal her dues.
This pretty maiden's prayer is answered anywhere

No gal made has got a shade on Sweet Georgia Brown.
Two left feet, but oh, so neat has Sweet Georgia Brown.
They all sigh and wanna die for Sweet Georgia Brown,
I'll tell you just why, you know I don't lie (not much!).
All those tips the porter slips to Sweet Georgia Brown
They buy clothes at fashion shows for one dollar down.
Fellas, won'tcha tip your hats.
Oh boy, ain't she the cats?
Who's that mister, ain't her sister, it's Sweet Georgia Brown.

Please

length: 3:03
composer: Ralph Rainger
lyricist: Leo Robin
Oh, please.
Lend your little ear to my pleas
Lend a ray of cheer to my pleas
Tell me that you love me too.
Please
Let me hold you tight in my arms
I could find delight in your charms
Every night my whole life through.
Your eyes reveal that you have the soul of
An angel white as snow.
How long must I play the role of
A gloomy Romeo?
Oh, please.
Say you're not intending to please
Speed that happy ending and please
Tell me that you love me too.

(Bing whistles and da da dees)

Your eyes reveal that you have the soul of
An angel white as snow.
How long must I play the role of
A gloomy Romeo?
Oh, please
Say you're not intending to tease
Speed that happy ending and please,
Tell me that you love me too.

I Don't Stand a Ghost of a Chance With You

length: 3:12
lyricist: Bing Crosby, Ned Washington
composer: Victor Young
I need your love so badly, I love you, oh, so madly
But I don't stand a ghost of a chance with you!
I thought at last I'd found you, but other lovers surround you
And "I don't stand a ghost of a chance with you!"
If you'd surrender just for a tender kiss or two
You might discover, that I'm the lover meant for you
And I'd be true, but what's the good of scheming
I know I must be dreaming

Brother Can You Spare a Dime

length: 3:15
composer: Jay Gorney
lyricist: Yip Harburg

They used to tell me I was building a dream
And so I followed the mob
When there was earth to plow or guns to bear
I was always there, right on the job

They used to tell me I was building a dream
With peace and glory ahead
Why should I be standing in line
Just waiting for bread?

Once I built a railroad, I made it run
Made it race against time
Once I built a railroad, now it's done
Brother, can you spare a dime?

Once I built a tower up to the sun
Brick and rivet and lime
Once I built a tower, now it's done
Brother, can you spare a dime?

Once in khaki suits, gee, we looked swell
Full of that Yankee Doodly dumb
Half a million boots went slogging through Hell
And I was the kid with the drum

Say, don't you remember? They called me 'Al'
It was 'Al' all the time
Why don't you remember? I'm your pal
Say buddy, can you spare a dime?

Once in khaki suits, ah, gee, we looked swell
Full of that Yankee Doodly dumb
Half a million boots went slogging through Hell
And I was the kid with the drum

Oh, say, don't you remember? They called me 'Al'
It was 'Al' all the time
Say, don't you remember? I'm your pal
Buddy, can you spare a dime?

You're Getting to Be a Habit With Me

lyricist: Al Dubin
composer: Harry Warren
Every kiss, every hug
Seems to act just like a drug
You're getting to be a habit with me
Let me stay in your arms
I'm addicted to your charms
You're getting to be a habit with me
I used to think your love was something that I could take or leave alone
But now I couldn't do without my supply
I need you for my own
Oh, I can't break away
I must have you every day
As regularly as coffee or tea
You've got me in your clutches
And I can't get free
You're getting to be a habit with me
Can't break it
You're getting to be a habit with me

I've Got the World on a String

length: 3:24
lyricist: Ted Koehler
composer: Harold Arlen
Merry month of may, sunny skies of blue,
clouds have rolled away and the sun peeps thru,
May express happiness, joy you may define in a thousand ways,
but a case like mine needs a "special phrase"
to reveal how I feel.

I've got the world on a string, sittin' on a rainbow,
Got the string around my finger,,
What a world, what a life, I'm in love!
I've got a song that I sing,

I can make the rain go, anytime I move my finger,
Lucky me, can't you see, I'm in love,
Life is a beautiful thing, as long as I hold the string,
I'd be a silly so and so, if I should ever let go,

I've got the world on a string, sittin' on a rainbow,
Got the string around my finger,
What a world, what a life, I'm in love.

I've got the world on a string, sittin' on a rainbow,
Got the string around my finger,,
What a world, what a life, I'm in love!
I've got a song that I sing,

I can make the rain go, anytime I move my finger,
Lucky me, can't you see, I'm in love,
Life is a beautiful thing, as long as I hold the string,
I'd be a silly so and so, if I should ever let go,

I've got the world on a string, sittin' on a rainbow,
Got the string around my finger,
What a world, what a life, I'm in love.

The Last Round-Up

Git along little doggie, git along
Git along little doggie, git along

I'm heading for the last roundup
Gonna saddle old Paint for the last time and ride
So long, old pal, it's time your tears were dried
I'm heading for the last roundup.

Git along little doggie, git along, git along
Git along little doggie, git along,
Git along little doggie, git along, git along
Git along little doggie, git along,

I'm heading for the last roundup
To the far away ranch of the Boss in the sky
Where the strays are counted and branded there go I
I'm heading for the last roundup

I'm heading for the last roundup
Gonna saddle old Paint for the last time and ride
So long, old pal, it's time your tears were dried
I'm heading for the last roundup.

Git along little doggie, git along,
Git along little doggie, git along,

I'm heading for the last roundup
There'll be Buffalo Bill with his long snow-white hair
There'll be old Kit Carson and Custer waiting there
A-riding in the last roundup

Love in Bloom

length: 3:07
Blue night and you, alone with me
My heart has never known such ecstasy
Am I on earth, am I in heaven?

Can it be the trees that fill the breeze with rare and magic perfume?
Oh, no, it isn't the trees, it's love in bloom
Can it be the spring that seems to bring the stars right into this room?
Oh, no, it isn't the spring, it's love in bloom

My heart was a desert
You planted a seed
And this is the flower
This hour of sweet fulfillment

Is it all a dream, the joy supreme that came to us in the gloom?
You know it isn't a dream, it's love in bloom

My heart was a desert
But you planted a seed
And this is the flower
This hour of sweet fulfillment

Is it all a dream, the joy supreme that came to us in the gloom?
You know it isn't a dream, it's love in bloom

June in January

composer: Ralph Rainger
lyricist: Leo Robin
A clouded moon creeps across the clouded sky
Winds of January sigh and moan
And yet it's June.
I can see a sky of blue
Dear the miracle is due to you.
Just you.
It's June in January
Because I'm in love
It always is spring in my heart
with you in my arms.
The snow is just white blossoms
that fall from above.
And here is the reason, my dear,
Your magical charms.
The night is cold
The trees are bare
But I can feel the scent of roses in the air.
It's June in January
Because I'm in love.
But only because I'm in love with you.

Oh the night is cold!
Won't it be too bare
But I can feel the scent of roses in the air.
It's June in January
Because I'm in love
But only because I'm in love with you.

Soon

composer: Richard Rodgers
lyricist: Lorenz Hart
Soon, the lonely nights will be ended,
Soon, two hearts as one will be blended.
I've found the happiness I've waited for,
The only girl that I was fated for.

Oh! Soon, a little cottage will find us
Safe with all our cares far behind us.
The day you're mine this world will be in tune,
Let's make that day come soon.

Soon, my dear, you'll never be lonely,
Soon, you'll find I live for you only.
When I'm with you who cares what time it is
Or what the place or the climate is?

Oh! Soon, our little ship will become sailing
Home through every storm, never failing,
The day you're mine this world will be in tune,
Let's make that day come soon.

It's Easy to Remember

composer: Richard Rodgers
lyricist: Lorenz Hart
Your sweet expression
The smile you gave me
The way you looked when we met
It's easy to remember
But so hard to forget

I hear you whisper
"I'll always love you"
I know it's over, and yet
It's easy to remember
But so hard to forget

So I must dream
To have your hand caress me
Fingers press me tight
I'd rather dream
Than have that lonely feeling
Stealing through the night

Each little moment
Is clear before me
And though it brings me regret
It's easy to remember
But so hard to forget

Oh, carry my loved one home safely to me

Red sails in the sunset; I'm trusting in you

Swift wings you must borrow
Make straight for the shore
We marry tomorrow
And she goes sailing no more

(Red sails in the sunset, way out on the sea)
Oh, carry my loved one home safely to me

Swift wings you must borrow
Make straight for the shore
We marry tomorrow
And she goes sailing no more

Way out on the sea (oh-wee-oh, wee-oh)
Oh, carry my loved one
(Home safely to me)

Silent Night, Holy Night

Silent night! Holy night!
All's asleep, one sole light,
Just the faithful and holy pair,
Lovely boy-child with curly hair,
Sleep in heavenly peace!

Silent night! Holy night!
God's Son laughs, o how bright.
Love from your holy lips shines clear,
As the dawn of salvation draws near,
Jesus, Lord, with your birth!

Silent night! Holy night!
Brought the world peace tonight,
From the heavens' golden height
Shows the grace of His holy might
Jesus, as man on this earth!

Silent night! holy night!
Where today all the might
Of His fatherly love us graced
And then Jesus, as brother embraced.
All the peoples on earth!

Silent night! Holy night!
Long we hoped that He might,
As our Lord, free us of wrath,
Since times of our fathers He hath
Promised to spare all mankind!

Silent night! Holy night!
Shepherds first see the sight.
Told by angelic Hallelujah,
Sounding everywhere, both near and far:
"Christ the Savior is here!"

Moonburn

Now, if you're think that I'm lookin' somewhat tanner
Don't go blamin' it on the sun
It's the moonlight and the sweetness in your manner
That's makin' me the healthy one

When the moon hangs low, I begin to glow
And my day has just begun
I'm gonna get a moonburn when I'm with you tonight
So very soon, I'll moonburn when you hold me tight

I'll ask the glowing stars up above me
What your lips will impart
And when they flash the word that you love me
You know it's gonna warm my heart

I'll get a brand new moonburn
With every kiss from you
And if I have my way, get my say
You'll get a moonburn too

Oh, I'm catchin' me some moonburn
When I get you alone with me tonight
So very soon, I'll moonburn when you hold me tight

I'll ask the glowing stars up above me
Tell me what your lips will impart
And when they flash the word that you love me
Ooh, it'll warm my heart

I'm gonna get me a brand new kind of a moonburn
With every kiss I get from you
And if I get my way, get my say, you'll get a moonburn too
Keep under cover, you'll get a moonburn too

The Touch of Your Lips

When troubles get me, cares beset me
And won't let me go,
I turn to you for consolation.
There I find new peace of mind;
To leave behind my woe
I turn to you as I shall always do.

The touch of your lips upon my brow,
Your lips that are cool and sweet,
Such tenderness lies in their soft caress,
My heart forgets to beat.

The touch of your hands upon my head,
The love in your eyes a-shine,
And now, at last, that moment divine,
The touch of your lips on mine.

The touch of your hands upon my head,
The love in your eyes a-shine,
And now, at last, that moment divine,
The touch of your lips on mine.

There'll be pennies from heaven for you and me

So shine, shine, shoe shine boy.

You find joy in the things you do
Shoe shine boy seldom ever blue
You're content with what you've got
So shine, shine, shoe shine boy.

People look at you with scorn
'cos your clothes are worn and torn
Still you never whine
You keep looking up and down the street
Pleading with each one you meet
Brother can you spare a shine.

Oh, Shoe shine boy soon the day will come
Shoe shine boy soon a tune you'll hum
Every nickel helps a lot
So shine, shine, shoe shine boy.

Tearing my fear apart

When the sunlight's beginning to pale
I ride through the slumbering shadows
Along the Navajo Trail

When it's night and crickets are callin'
And coyotes are makin' a wail
I dream by a smoldering fire
Along the Navajo Trail

I love to lie and listen to the music
When the wind is strummin' a sagebrush guitar
When over yonder hill the moon is climbin'
It always finds me wishin' on a star

Well whatta ya know, it's mornin' already
There's the dawnin', so silver and pale
It's time to climb into my saddle
And ride the Navajo Trail

I love to lie and listen to the music

Out of the darkness you suddenly appeared
You smiled and I was taken by surprise
I guess I should have seen right through you
But the moon got in my eyes

I was so thrilled by the love you volunteered
I gave my heart without a compromise
I guess you don't remember, do you?
When the moon got in my eyes

I thought a kingdom was in sight
That I would have the right to claim
But with the morning's early light
I didn't have a dream to my name

You know the saying all who love are blind
It seems that ancient adage still applies
I guess I should have seen right through you
But the moon got in my eyes

I thought a kingdom was in sight
That I would have the right to claim
But with the morning's early light
I didn't have a dream to my name

You know the saying all who love are blind
It seems that ancient adage still applies
I guess I should have seen right through you

Remember Me

Do you remember one September afternoon
I stood with you and listened to a wedding tune,
And didn't I go with you on your honeymoon?
Remember me?

Do you recall a cottage small upon a hill
Where every day I had to pay another bill?
And if I'm not mistaken, dear, I pay them still
Remember me?

I can see that little angel on your knee
Can't you see, He kinda sorta looks like me
For I'm the boy whose only joy is loving you
Who worries till he hurries home when day is through

And I'm the guy you give you goodnight kisses to
Remember me?

He says you got a corny trill
Bob White (I'm gonna swing tonight)

I was talkin' to the mocking bird
He says you are the worst he's heard
Bob White (I'm gonna swing tonight)

Even the owl tells me you're foul
Singing those lullaby notes
(Well, he is a bring down)
(He never could swing down)
(He ain't got my high notes)

There's a lot of talk about you, Bob
(Yeah) they're sayin' you're off the cob
(Why, that's heresy, I'll sue)

Fake it, (mm) Mr. B, (yeah go)
Take it, follow me, Bob White
We're gonna break it up tonight

Now, here's a wire from the whippoorwill
(You mean my old friend Will)
Who says you got a mellow drill
(Oh, ho, ho, yes, I have)

Bob White, (oh, ho, ho)
We're in the groove tonight

Now, here's another one from the mocking bird
(What does he have to say)
That you're the best he's heard
(Ho, ho, ho that's too absurd)

Bob White, (oh, ho, ho)
We really stole the light

Even the owl threw in a towel
After you sing staccato
(And the flamingo hollered up a jingle)
(What have we brought to)

Now the consensus of opinion
(Oh, ho, ho, what does the consensus say)
That you are a solid will
(Ho, ho, ho, yes, I am)

Sing on, Mr.B

Happiness comes with success
And that I guess is true
But success is more or less
A point of view

I'm no millionaire
But I'm not the type to care
Cause I've got a pocketful of dreams
It's my universe
Even with an empty purse
Cause I've got a pocketful of dreams

I wouldn't take the wealth of Wall Street
For a road where nature trods
And I calculate that I'm worth my weight
In goldenrods

Lucky, lucky me
I can live in luxury
Cause I've got a pocketful of dreams

You must have been a beautiful baby

When you were only starting to go to kindergarten
I bet you drove the little boys wild.
And when it came to winning blue ribbons
You must have shown the other kids how.
I can see the judges' eyes as they handed you the prize
You must have made the cutest bow.
You must've been a beautiful baby
'Cause baby look at you now.

Does your mother realize
The stork delivered quite a prize
The day he left you on the family tree?
Does your dad appreciate
That you're merely super-great
The miracle of any century?
If they don't just send them both to me.

You must have been a beautiful baby
You must have been a wonderful child.
When you were only starting to go to kindergarten
I bet you drove the little boys wild.
And when it came to winning blue ribbons
You must have shown the other kids how.

You must have made the cutest bow.

A garden of roses for you and for me
A thousand and one things, Dear, I would do
Just for you, just for you

You would reign all alone, like a queen on a throne

An Apple for the Teacher

An apple for the teacher
That seems the thing to do
Because I want to learn
About romance from you.

An apple for the teacher
To show I'm meek and mild,
If you insist on saying
That I'm just a problem child.

You'll get all my attention,
Your wish will be my rule;
And maybe you'll be good to me
And keep me after school

An apple for the teacher
That's how I'd better start,
The after while you may give in
And let me bring my heart

An apple for the teacher
Will always do the trick,
When you don't know
Your lesson in arithmetic

An apple for the teacher
Will meet with great success
If you forgot to memorize
The Gettysburg Address

A little bit of glamour
A charm that's cute and quaint;
And he'll excuse your grammar
And believe you're what you ain't.

You may be just a lemon
But he'll think you're a peach
Just bring an apple for the teacher
When he starts to teach

So I ups to him and I say,
Whatcha say?
"Oh Mister Meadowlark we gots a lot of serenading to do."
Who to?
"Ooh Mister Meadowlark I'm just a city slicker & I'm counting on you."

My whistle is thin

So when I begin, that's where you come in

Oh you're ? your heart mister meadowlark
Now if you should cop a gander when I'm kissing my chick
Needless to remind I'm gonna have the decency to exit due but quick
Say but what if Mrs. M thinks I'm out stepping?
Fear not, I'll make it alright
For Mr. Meadowlark meet me in the dark tonight
The scene changes, nightfall, our two characters at the ? place, the park,
Spoon and spark with meadowlark

Ooh Mister Meadowlark we're gathered here to witness this moment event
It's a charming little park
Paid for by the city
Now my brother you're a cinch
Cause when I send them, they're sent
You mean you're ready?
Suppose I hit a real good ripple
Well whistle me a whizzer
I'll slip you a ?
Now when I begin
Why that's where I come in
Pretty now
Oh Mister Meadowlark, I guess you know that clinker put the finish oh me
Fair weather friend, eh?
Needn't to remind I hope you know you put me in a practically impossible key
If they squawk then you got to square it
Square it

Yes Mister Meadowlark goodnight
Goodnight

Don't ever call again.

I've locked my heart.
I keep my feelings there.
I have stopped my heart
Like an icy frigidaire.
For I need to care for no one.
That's why I'm thru with love.

Why did you leave me
To think that you cared.
You didn't need me.
You have your share
of slaves around you
To hound you and swear
Their deep devotion.
Emotion.

Did you good by the spring
And all it meant to me

The things that used to be.

Still hears my broken song of love
Moon in all your splendor know only my heart
Call back my rose, rose of San Antone
Lips so sweet and tender like petals falling apart
Speak once again of my love, my own.
Broken song, empty words I know
Still live in my heart all alone

The Birth of the Blues

length: 3:16
Oh! they say some people long ago
Were searching for a diff'rent tune,
One that they could croon
As only they can.

They only had the rhythm so
They started swaying to and fro.
They didn't know just what they had
And that is how the blues really began:

They heard the breeze in the trees
Singing weird melodies
And they made that
The start of the blues.

And from a jail came the wail
Of a down hearted frail,
And they played that
As part of the blues.

From a whippoorwill out on a hill,
They took a new note,
Pushed it through a horn
'til it was born into a blue note.

And then they nursed it, rehearsed it,
And gave out the news
That the south land
Gave birth to the blues!

You make me happy when skies are gray
You'll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away

You told me once dear, that you really love me
And no one else could come between
But now you've left me and you love another
You have shattered all my dreams

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You'll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away

The dogies bawl, and bawl and bawl,

Wait Till the Sun Shines Nellie

length: 2:35
On a Sunday morn sat a maid forlorn
With her sweetheart by her side,
Through the windowpane, she looked at the rain,
"We must stay home, Joe," she cried.
"There's a picnic, too, at the old Point View,
It's a shame it rained today."
Then the boy drew near, kissed away each tear,
And she heard him softly say,
"Wait till the sun shines, Nellie,
When the clouds go drifting by,
We will be happy, Nellie,
Don't you sigh.

Down Lover's Lane we'll wander,
Sweethearts you and I.
Wait till the sun shines, Nellie,
Bye and bye."

"How I long," she sighed, "for a trolley ride
Just to show my brand new gown."
Then she gazed on high with a gladsome cry
For the sun came shining down.
And she looked so sweet on the big front seat
As the car sped on its way,
And she whispered low,
"Say you're all right, Joe,
You just won my heart today.

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
"May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

Moonlight Becomes You

lyricist: Johnny Burke
composer: Jimmy Van Heusen
Moonlight becomes you, it goes with your hair
You certainly know the right thing to wear
Moonlight becomes you, I'm thrilled at the sight
And I could get so romantic tonight

You're all dressed up to go dreaming
Now don't tell me I'm wrong
And what a night to go dreaming
Mind if I tag along

If I say I love you
I want you to know
It's not just because there's moonlight
Although, moonlight becomes you so

You're all dressed up to go dreaming
Now don't tell me I'm wrong
And what a night to go dreaming
Mind if I tag along

If I say I love you
I want you to know
It's not just because there's moonlight
Although, moonlight becomes you so

Sunday, Monday or Tuesday

I want you near
Every day in the year

Oh, won't you tell me when
We will meet again
Sunday, Monday or always

If you're satisfied
I'll be at your side
Sunday, Monday or always

No need to tell me now
What makes the world go 'round
When at the sight of you
My heart begins to pound and pound

And what am I to do
Can't I be with you
Sunday, Monday or always

Always and forever I must be with you
Beginning Sunday and Monday and then forever

Oh, won't you tell me when
We will meet again
Sunday, Monday or always

If you're satisfied
I'll be at your side
Sunday, Monday or always

No need to tell me now
What makes the world go 'round
When at the sight of you
My heart begins to pound, pound, pound

What am I to do
Can't I be with you
Sunday, Monday or always

Don't throw bouquets at me
Don't please my folks too much
Don't laugh at my jokes too much

Don't start collecting things
Give me my rose and my glove

Well, sweetheart, they're suspecting things
People will say we're in love

Oh! I'm packing my grip
And I'm leav-in' to-day,

And kind-ly old Rev-'rend Thomas
Made us a pro-mise
He will make the two of us one.

So, I'm hit-tin' the trail
To the cow coun-try.

Swinging on a Star

length: 2:32
orchestra: John Scott Trotter and His Orchestra
background vocals: The Williams Brothers
lead vocals: Bing Crosby
lyricist: Johnny Burke
composer: Jimmy Van Heusen
Would you like to swing on a star
Carry moonbeams home in a jar
And be better off than you are
Or would you rather be a mule?

A mule is an animal with long funny ears
He kicks up at anything he hears
His back is brawny but his brain is weak
He's just plain stupid with a stubborn streak
And by the way, if you hate to go to school
You may grow up to be a mule

Or would you like to swing on a star
Carry moonbeams home in a jar
And be better off than you are
Or would you rather be a pig?

A pig is an animal with dirt on his face
His shoes are a terrible disgrace
He's got no manners when he eats his food
He's fat and lazy and extremely rude
But if you don't care a feather or a fig
You may grow up to be a pig

Or would you like to swing on a star
Carry moonbeams home in a jar
And be better off than you are
Or would you rather be a fish?

A fish won't do anything, but swim in a brook
He can't write his name or read a book
To fool the people is his only thought
And though he's slippery, he still gets caught
But then if that sort of life is what you wish
You may grow up to be a fish

And all the monkeys aren't in the zoo
Everyday you'll meet quite a few
So you see it's all up to you
You can be better than you are
You could be swingin' on a star

I love you
Hums the April breeze.

The golden dawn agrees
As once more she sees
Daffodils.
It's spring again
And birds on the wing again
Start to sing again
The old melody.
I love you,
That's the song of songs
And it all belongs
To you and me.

Night and Day

length: 3:15
composer: Cole Porter
lyricist: Cole Porter
Like the beat, beat, beat of the tom tom
When the jungle shadows fall
Like the tick,tick, tock of the stately clock
As it stands against the wall
Like the drip, drip drip of the rain drops
When the summer showers through
A voice within me keeps repeating
You, you, you

Night and day you are the one
Only you beneath the moon or under the sun
Weather near to me or far it's no matter darling
Where you are
I think of you
Day and night, night and day
Why is it so that this longing for you
Follows where ever I go
In the roaring traffics boom, in the silence of my lonely room
I think of you
Night and day, day and night
Under the hyde of me, there's an oh such a hungry yearning burning
Inside of me
And this torment wont be through
Till you let me spend my life making love to you
Day and night, night and day

I'll be seeing you in all the old familiar places
That this heart of mine embraces all day through
In that small cafe, the park across the way
The children's carousel,
The chestnut trees, the wishing well

I'll be seeing you in every lovely summer's day
In everything that's light and gay
I'll always think of you that way

I'll find you in the morning' sun
And when the night is new
I'll be looking at the moon
But I'll be seeing you
I'll find you in the morning sun
And when the night is new
I'll be looking at the moon
But I'll be seeing you

There'll be a hot time in the town of Berlin
When the Yanks go marching in
I want to be there boy, spread some joy
When they take old Berlin

There'll be a hot time in the town of Berlin
When the Brooklyn boys begin
To take the joint apart, tear it down
When they take old Berlin

We're going to start a row, show 'em how
Paint the town down in Kokomo
Take a hike through Hitler's Reich
Change the heil to whatcha-know-Joe
There'll be a hot time in the town of Berlin
Yanks go marching in
Well, you can never keep them happy down on the farm
After they take Berlin

We're going to start a row, show them how
Paint the town down in Michigan
We're gonna take a hike through Hitler's Reich
Change the heil to give-me-some-skin
There'll be a hot time in the town of Berlin
The Yanks go marching in
Well you can never keep them happy down on the farm
After they take Berlin

Oh, give me land, lots of land under starry skies above
Don't fence me in
Let me ride through the wide open country that I love
Don't fence me in
Let me be by myself in the evenin' breeze
And listen to the murmur of the cottonwood trees
Send me off forever but I ask you please
Don't fence me in

Just turn me loose, let me straddle my old saddle
Underneath the western skies
On my Cayuse, let me wander over yonder
Till I see the mountains rise

I want to ride to the ridge where the west commences
And gaze at the moon till I lose my senses
And I can't look at hovels and I can't stand fences
Don't fence me in

One brief feeling, 5 seconds go by. Buzzing of wires.
Sweater looks a lot like mine.
Million things to think about, thinking about what I shouldn't think about.
You've got a million ways to look at things. A bright side.

A million ways to look at things. A bright side.
Hello, Auburn, how are you? The state that I'm into, hands like hammers bang.
There's no love lost.
Bitter remained like a taste in your mouth and nobody finds the one, and they keep looking.

Crawling in and out of beds, flesh covers the bone.
Flesh searches for more, for more than flesh.
flesh searches for more, for more than flesh.
Flesh searches for more, for more than flesh. flesh searches for more, for more than flesh.

Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive

lyricist: Johnny Mercer
composer: Harold Arlen
You've got to accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between

You've got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom down to the minimum
Have faith or pandemonium
Liable to walk upon the scene

To illustrate his last remark
Jonah in the whale, Noah in the ark
What did they do
Just when everything looked so dark

Man, they said we better, accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between
No, do not mess with Mister In-Between
Do you hear me?

Oh, listen to me children and-a you will hear
About the elininatin' of the negative
And the accent on the positive
And gather 'round me children if you're willin'
And sit tight while I start reviewin'
The attitude of doin' right

You've gotta accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between

You've got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom, down to the minimum
Otherwise pandemonium
Liable to walk upon the scene

To illustrate my last remark
Jonah in the whale, Noah in the ark
What did they say
Say when everything looked so dark

Man, they said we better accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative

I don't care where I'm going
Just as long as I'm with you
Put it there, pal. Put it there

I'll be just like your horses
And I'll stick to you like glue
Put it there, pal. Put it there

I'm glad you're fooling Pepsodent (oh, that happy snow)
Stealing all that cash
I hear your show on Thursdays (nice, huh?)
What a lot of eggs you smash

Well at least I don't depend upon
Cologne's big moustache (oh, he gave me the brush)
You're faithful and you're fair
Put it there (skin me Dad, skin me)

You've got that something in your voice
So right for selling cheese (hustle a lot of the stuff)
Put it there, pal. Put it there (put that back in the bowl)

You know, I think your jokes are great (really?)
It's just that folks are hard to please (they're just snobs, that all)
Put it there, pal. Put it there

Your face could make a fortune
Just your nose should make a lot (how do you siphon?)
I like the way you wear those gaudy-colored shirts you've got, boy
The only time a rainbow ever covered up a pot
You're such a perfect square (oh-oh, is that on the paper?)
(Where? Where?)

Shall we dance
Sorry, I have my heavy underwear on
Oh, just to once around, to the adrenalin, huh
Well, OK, if I lead

My colleague, my crony, my cohort, my friend
Companions, confederates, chums to the end
Like meat and potatoes, or salt and tomatoes
Boy, what a blend

Don't put it in the paper (don't worry about me)
Don't put it on the air (I'll finish it)
Don't put it in your pipe
Put it there

Confidentially, do you like this as well as singing
Leave your name with the girl when you go out
We may get to you for some crowd noises
Be sure and call me
All right

You belong to my heart
Now and forever
And our love had its start
Not long ago

We were gathering stars while a million guitars played our love song
When I said, "I love you", every beat of my heart said it, too

'Twas a moment like this
Do you remember?
And your eyes threw a kiss
When they met mine

Now, we own all the stars, and a million guitars are still playing
Darling, you are the song, and you'll always belong to my heart

'Twas a moment like this

If I Loved You

If I loved you,
Time and again I would try to say
All I'd want you to know.
If I loved you,
Words wouldn't come in an easy way
Round in circles I'd go!

Longin' to tell you,
But afraid and shy,
I'd let my golden chances pass me by!

Soon you'd leave me,
Off you would go in the mist of day,
Never, never to know how I loved you
If I loved you.

Close as Pages in a Book

length: 3:11
We'll be close as pages in a book
My love and I
So close, we can share a single look
Share every sigh

So close that before I hear your laugh
My laugh breaks through
And when a tear starts to appear
My eyes grow misty too

Our dreams won't come tumbling to the ground
We'll hold them fast
Darling as the strongest book is bound
We're bound to last

Your life is my life
And while life beats away in my heart
We'll be close as pages in a book
Never to part

Your life is my life
And while life beats away in my heart
We'll be close as pages in a book
Never to part

Every day, along about evening
When the sunlight's beginning to pale
I ride through the slumbering shadows
Along the Navajo Trail

When it's night and crickets are callin'
And coyotes are makin' a wail
I dream by a smoldering fire
Along the Navajo Trail

I love to lie and listen to the music
When the wind is strummin' a sagebrush guitar
When over yonder hill the moon is climbin'
It always finds me wishin' on a star

Well whatta ya know, it's mornin' already
There's the dawnin', so silver and pale
It's time to climb into my saddle
And ride the Navajo Trail

I love to lie and listen to the music

When over yonder hill the moon is climbin'
It always finds me wishin' on a star

Well whatta ya know, it's mornin' already

Yeah, after I've gone after I've gone away

A Couple of Song and Dance Men

In us you see a couple of song and dance men
I'm the song
I'm the dance

For laughter, joy and happiness, we're advance men
With a song
And a dance

I sing for my supper
I dance for my lunch
I croon when the landlord comes around

For miles around the women and children pass out cold
When my voice hits the air
And my feet hit the ground

Last night
Out in the moonlight
I came to serenade
A very pretty maid
I sang her to sleep with "Asleep in the Deep"
That always makes them collapse
I saw her eyes close, then she started to doze
But she arose when I sounded taps

Which goes to show what women will do when we're around
And my voice hits the air
And my feet hit the ground

Come on and hear, come on and hear Alexander's Ragtime Band
Come on and hear, come on and hear 'bout the best band in the land
They can play a bugle call like you never heard before
So natural that you want to go to war

That's just the bestest band what am, oh Honey Lamb
Come on along, come on along, let me take you by the hand
Up to the man, up to the man who's the leader of the band
And if you care to hear the Swanee River played in ragtime
Come on and hear, come on and hear Alexander's Ragtime Band

Now Is the Hour (Maori Farewell Song)

length: 3:10
lead vocals: Bing Crosby
choir vocals: The Ken Darby Choir
composer: Clement Scott
lyricist: Maewa Kaihau, Dorothy Stewart
Now is the hour when we must say goodbye
Soon you'll be sailing far across the sea
While you're away, o, then remember me
When you return, you'll find me waiting here

Sunset glow fades in the west
Night o'er the valley is creeping
Birds cuddle down in their nest
Soon all the world will be sleeping

Now is the hour when we must say goodbye
Soon you'll be sailing far across the sea
While you're away, o, then remember me
When you return, you'll find me waiting here

Embraceable You

length: 2:55
Embrace me, my sweet embraceable you!
Embrace me, you irreplaceable you!

Just one look at you
My heart grew tipsy in me,
You and you alone
Bring out the Gypsy in me!

I love all, the many charms about you!
Above all, I want my arms about you!

Don't be a naughty baby,
Come to papa, come to papa, do!
My sweet embraceable you!

But Beautiful

length: 2:44
Love is funny or it's sad
Or it's quit or it's mad
It's a good thing or it's bad

But beautiful
Beautiful to take a chance and if you fall, you fall
And I'm thinking I wouldn't mind at all
Love is tearful or it's gay
It's a problem or it's a play
It's heartache either way

But beautiful
And I'm thinking if you were mine
I'd never let you go
And that would be
But beautiful
I know
Love is beautiful
I know

Sam's Song

length: 2:53
composer: Lew Quadling
lyricist: John Elliot
Here's a happy tune you'll love to croon
They call it Sam's song
It's catchy as can be, the melody
They call it Sam's song
Nothing on your mind
And then you'll find you're humming Sam's Song
Why, it makes you grin
Gets under your skin as only a song can do

People that you meet out on the street
All whistling Sam's Song
Everyone you see will soon agree that it's a grand song
So forget your troubles and wear a smile
You'll find you never go wrong
If you learn to croon this happy tune
They call it Sam's song

"And now another treatment of this
Classic American Theme
Brought to you by, Mr. Gary Crosby"

Here's a happy tune
(That'll bring you a smile all the while)
(When you croon it you're really in style)
And the title is Sam's Song
It's catchy as can be
(With a sly little beat)
(And the melody sweet keeps you tapping your feet)
And the title is Sam's Song

Nothing on your mind
(But the news of the day)
(And the bills you must pay keep your hair turning gray)
(But you're still humming Sam's Song)
"Are you alright"
"How's your brace"
(Why, it makes you grin)
(Gets under your skin as only a song can do)

People that you meet
(Hello Joe, what you know)
(And remind me to Moe, tell him business is slow)
(But I'm whistling)
Sam's Song
Everyone you see
(Has a story to tell or a gimmick to sell)
(But agree that it's swell)
(And it's really)
A grand song

So forget your troubles and wear a smile
You'll find you never go wrong
If you learn to croon
Like a lark in the park
Who is making his mark serenading the dark
With a chorus of Sam's song

If you learn to croon the happy tune
They call it Sam's song

Autumn Leaves

length: 3:27
translator: Johnny Mercer
lyricist: Jacques Prévert
composer: Joseph Kosma
The falling leaves drift by the window
The autumn leaves of red and gold
I see your lips, the summer kisses
The sun-burned hands I used to hold

Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I'll hear old winter's song
But I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

C'est une chanson, qui nous ressemble
Toi tu m'aimais et je t'aimais
Nous vivions tous deux ensemble
Toi qui m'aimais moi qui t'aimais
Mais la vie separe ceux qui s'aiment
Tout doucement sans faire de bruit
Et la mer efface sur le sable les pas des amants desunis

I've Never Been in Love Before

If I Were a Bell

length: 3:11
composer: Frank Loesser
lyricist: Frank Loesser
Ask me how do I feel,
Now that we're cosy and clinging,
Well sir, all I can say is
If I were a bell I'd be ringing!

From the moment we kissed goodnight,
That's the way I just gotta behave,
And if I were a lamp I'd light,
Or if I were a banner I'd wave!

Ask me how do I feel,
Little me with my quiet upbringing,
Well sir, all I can say is
If I were a gate I'd be swinging!

And if I were a watch,
I'd start popping my spring,
Oh, and if I were a bell
I'd go "Ding dong ding dong ding!".

Ask me how do I feel
From this chemistry lesson I'm learning,
Well sir, all I can say is
If I were a bridge I'd be burning!

Well, I knew my moral would crack
From the wonderful way you looked,
Boy, if I were a duck I'd quack,
Or if I were a goose I'd be cooked!

Ask me how do I feel
Now that we're fondly caressing,
And if I were a salad,
I know I'd be splashing my dressing!

Or if I were a season,
I'd surely be Spring,
Yes, and if I were a bell,
Say, if I were a bell,
If I were a bell
I'd go "Ding dong ding dong ding!".
