I Believe in You

length: 3:51
You have the cool, clear eyes
Of a seeker of wisdom and truth
Yet there's that up-turned chin
And the grin of impetuous youth
Oh, I believe in you
I believe in you.

I hear the sound of good, solid judgment
Whenever you talk
Yet there's the bold, brave spring of the tiger
That quickens your walk
Oh, I believe in you
I believe in you.

And when my faith
In my fellow man
All but falls apart
I've but to feel your hand grasping mine
And I take heart
I take heart.
To see the cool, clear eyes
Of a seeker of wisdom and truth
Yet there's that slam, bang, tang

Reminiscent of gin and vermouth
Oh, I believe in you
Now I believe in you.

I believe in you
I believe in you ...
I believe you're good for me, baby

It's Today

Everybody Has the Right to Be Wrong

length: 2:39
vocal: Bobby Darin
Everybody has the right to be wrong at least once
Everybody has the right to be dunce-like, once-like
Not being too smart is, is no disgrace
What sets you apart is smilin' with egg on your face

Its naive to make believe that you're right, it's not bright
Only fools go walking on thin ice, twice

You and life can skip the strife and you'll both get along
All it takes is simply saying you're wrong when you're wrong
And everybody has the right to be wrong

You and life can skip the strife and you'll both get along
All it takes is simply sayin' you're wrong when you're wrong
And everybody has the right to be
It can be a real delight to be
And I'd fight, fight for the right to be wrong
"At least once!!">

Feeling Good

length: 2:47
vocal: Bobby Darin
writer: Leslie Bricusse, Anthony Newley
Bird flying high
You know how I feel
Sun in the sky
You know how I feel
Breeze drifting by
You know how I feel

It's a new dawn
A new day
A new life
For me
Feeling good

Hey there, fish in the sea
You know how I feel
River running free
You know how I feel
Blossoms on the tree
You know how I feel

It's a new dawn
A new day
A new life
For me
Feeling good

Dragonfly out in the sun
You know what I mean
Butterflies all having fun
You know what I mean
Sleep in peace when day is done
That's what I mean
And this whole world
Is a new world
And a bold world for me

Stars when you shine;
You know how I feel
Scent of the pine
You know how I feel
Freedom is mine
And I know how I feel

It's a new dawn
A new day
A new life
For me
I feel good
I feel good
I feel good

Don't Rain on My Parade

length: 2:56
vocal: Bobby Darin
composer: Jule Styne
lyricist: Bob Merrill
Hey, world here I am!

Don't tell me not to fly
I've simply got to
If someone takes a spill
It's me and not you
Don't bring around a cloud
To rain on my parade.

Don't tell me not to live
Just sit and putter
Life's candy and the sun is
A ball of butter
Who told you you're allowed
To rain on my parade?

I'm gonna march my band out
I'll beat my drum
And if I'm fanned out
Your turn at bat, sir
Hey, at least I didn't fake it
Hat, sir, so what I didn't make it.

But, whether I'm the rose
Of sheer perfection
Or a freckle on the nose
Of life's complexion
The cinder of a shiny apple
Of its eye.

I gotta fly once
I gotta try once
Only can die once, right, sir?
Ooh â?¦ love is juicy
Juicy and you see
I gotta have my bite, sir!

So get ready for me, love
'cause I'm a "comer"
I simply gotta march
My heart's a drummer
Don't bring around a cloud
To rain on my parade!

I gotta fly once
I gotta try once
Only can die once, right, sir?
Ooh, love is juicy
Juicy and you see
I gotta have my bite, sir!

Umm, ahh, get ready for me, love
'cause I'm a "comer"
I simply gotta march
My heart's a drummer
Nobody
I said, nobody

Nobody had better
Rain on my parade!
Yeah!

The Other Half of Me

length: 2:29
producer: Perry Botkin Jr.
arranger: Shorty Rogers
conductor: Shorty Rogers
vocal: Bobby Darin
the other half of me I've yet to meet.
One special someone
whose heart has a similar leaning
and if she were right for me
day and night for me
would have meaning.
The other half of me
that unknown quanity
that unseen destiny
could make me complete.
Is there a chart for the heart or a graph?
Will we meet on the street with a laugh?
Will we know one another,
if I ever meet my other half.
The other half of me.


Once Upon a Time

length: 3:07
vocal: Bobby Darin
Once upon a time
A girl with moonlight in her eyes
Put her hand in mine,
And said she loved me so
But that was once upon a time
Very long ago

Once upon a hill
We sat beneath a willow tree
Counting all the stars
And waiting for the dawn
But that was once upon a time,
Now the tree is gone

How the breeze ruffled through her hair
How we always laughed
As though tomorrow wasn't there
We were young
And didn't have a care
Where did it go?

Once upon a time
The world was sweeter than we knew
Everything was ours
How happy we were then
But somehow once upon a time
Never comes again

Try to Remember

length: 3:10
vocal: Bobby Darin
composer: Harvey Schmidt
lyricist: Tom Jones
Try to remember the kind of September
When life was slow and oh, so mellow
Try to remember the kind of September
When grass was green and grain was yellow

Try to remember the kind of September
When you were a tender and callow fellow
Try to remember and if you remember
Then follow
Follow

Deep in December it's nice to remember
Although you know the snow will follow
Deep in December it's so nice to remember
Without a hurt the heart is hollow

Deep in December it's nice to remember
The fire of September that made you mellow
Deep in December our hearts should remember
And follow
Follow
Follow

I'll Only Miss Her When I Think of Her

length: 2:35
vocal: Bobby Darin
When I think of her
And I'll think of her...
All the time

Likely I'll spend my days
Hearing her turn a phrase
Things I found to praise right now
Would seem sublime...


The truth is
I'll only miss her
When some stranger laughs
Cause it's still her laugh
My heart hears


Maybe in time I guess...
The longing will grow the slightest bit less
And there will be moments, yes
When it disappears...
I'll bet I forget her completely...
In about a hundred years




Night Song

vocal: Bobby Darin

Summer, not a bit of breeze
Neon signs are shining through the tired trees
Lovers walking to and fro
Everyone has someone and a place to go

Listen, hear the cars go past
They don't even see me, flyin' by so fast
Moving, going who knows where
Only thing I know is I'm not going there

Where do you go?

When ya feel that your brain is on fire
Where do ya go

When you don't even know what it is you desire

Listen, laughter everywhere
Hear it, life is in the air

As the night comes and the town awaits
Sounds of children calling and the squeal of breaks

Music, but a lonely song
When you can't help wondering

Where do I belong?
Where do I belong?
Where do I belong?
