writer: Al Byron, Paul Evans

Roses are red, my love ... doo doo da doooo ...

A long, long time ago
On graduation day
You handed me your book
I signed this way:

"Roses are red, my love.
Violets are blue.
Sugar is sweet, my love.
But not as sweet as you."

We dated through high school.
And when the big day came,
I wrote into your book,
Next to my name:

"Roses are red, my love.
Violets are blue.
Sugar is sweet, my love.
But not as sweet as you."

Then I went far away
And you found someone new
I read your letter dear
And I wrote back to you:

"Roses are red, my love.
Violets are blue.
Sugar is sweet, my love.
But luck may god bless you."

Is that your little girl?
She looks a lot like you.
Someday some boy will write
In her book, too.

"Roses are red, my love.
Violets are blue.
Sugar is sweet, my love.
But not as sweet as you."

Sentimental Me

length: 2:51
writer: Jim Morehead, Jimmy Cassin
Sentimental me
Guess I'll always be
So in love with you
Don't know what to do
Sentimental me

A-dreamin' while I live
A-livin' just to give
All my love to you
No one else will do
Sentimental me (sentimental me)

A-reachin' for the moon
And wishin' on a star
On my honeymoon,
I wanna be where you are

Darlin', can't you see?
It was meant to be
I'm in love with you
Say you love me too
Sentimental me (sentimental me)

A-reachin' for the moon
And wishin' on a star
On my honeymoon,
I wanna be where you are

Darlin', can't you see?
It was meant to be
I'm in love with you
Say you love me too
Sentimental me

Oh, sentimental me
Ah, sentimental me

I Fall to Pieces

length: 2:49
composer: Hank Cochran, Harlan Howard
I fall to pieces
Each time I see you again
I fall to pieces
How can I be just your friend?

You want me to act like we've never kissed
You want me to forget (to forget)
Pretend we never met (never met)
And I've tried and I've tried
But I haven't yet
You walk by and I fall to pieces

I fall to pieces
Each time someone speaks your name
I fall to pieces
Time only adds to the flame

You tell me to find someone else to love
Someone who'll love me too (love me too)
The way you used to do (used to do)
But each time I go out with someone new
You walk by and I fall to pieces
You walk by and I fall to pieces

Mr. Lonely

length: 2:43
producer: Bob Morgan
conductor: Robert Mersey
arranger: Robert Mersey
writer: Bobby Vinton, Gene Allan
Lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
I have nobody for my own
I am so lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
Wish I had someone to call on the phone

Now I'm a soldier, a lonely soldier
Away from home through no wish of my own
That's why I'm lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
I wish that I could go back home

Letters, never a letter
I get no letters in the mail
I've been forgotten, yes, forgotten
Oh how I wonder, how is it I failed

Now I'm a soldier, a lonely soldier
Away from home through no wish of my own
That's why I'm lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
I wish that I could go back home

Have I Told You Lately That I Love You?

length: 2:42
composer: Scott Wiseman
lyricist: Scott Wiseman
Have I told you lately that I love you?
Well, darling, I'm telling you now

Have I told you lately that I love you? (I love you)
Could I tell you once again somehow? (I love you)
Have I told with all my heart and soul how I adore you?
Well, darling, I'm telling you now

This heart would break in two if you refuse me
I'm no good without you anyhow
Dear, have I told you lately that I love you?
Well, darling, I'm telling you now

Have I told you lately how I miss you (I miss you)
When the stars are shining in the sky? (the sky)
Have I told you why the nights are long when you're not with me?
Well, darling, I'm telling you now

This heart would break in two if you refuse me
I'm no good without you anyhow
Dear, have I told you lately that I love you?
Well, darling, I'm telling you now
(I love you, I do)

I Can’t Stop Loving You

length: 2:35
composer: Don Gibson
lyricist: Don Gibson
(I can't stop loving you)
I've made up my mind
To live in memory of the lonesome times
(I can't stop wanting you)
It's useless to say
So I'll just live my life in dreams of yesterday
(Dreams of yesterday)

Those happy hours that we once knew
Though long ago, they still make me blue
They say that time heals a broken heart
But time has stood still since we've been apart

(I can't stop loving you)
I've made up my mind
To live in memories of the lonesome times
(I can't stop wanting you)
It's useless to say
So I'll just live my life in dreams of yesterday

(Those happy hours) (Repeat x2)
(That we once knew) (Repeat x2)
(Though long ago) (Repeat x2)
(Still make me blue)
Still make me blue
(They say that time) (Repeat x2)
(Heals a broken heart) (Repeat x2)
(But time has stood still)
Time has stood still
(Since we've been apart) (Repeat x2)

(I can't stop loving you)
I said I made up my mind
To live in memory of the lonesome times
Sing a song, children
(I can't stop wanting you)
It's useless to say
So I'll just live my life of dreams of yesterday
(Of yesterday)

I Can’t Help It

length: 2:49
composer: Hank Williams
lyricist: Hank Williams

[Hook]
I can't help it if I'm still in love with you

[Verse 1]
Today I passed you on the street
And my heart fell at your feet
I can't help it if I'm still in love with you
Somebody else stood by your side
And he looked so satisfied
I can't help it if I'm still in love with you

[Verse 2]
A picture from the past came slowly stealin'
As I brushed your arm and walked so close to you (so close to you)
Then suddenly I got that old time feelin'
I can't help it if I'm still in love with you

[Bridge]
(I can't help it if I'm still in love with you)

[Verse 3]
It's hard to know when others' lips will kiss you
And hold you just the way I used to do (I used to do)
Oh, heaven only knows how much I miss you
I can't help it if I'm still in love with you

[Outro]
I can't help it if I'm still in love with you (in love with you)

True Love

length: 2:19
composer: Cole Porter
lyricist: Cole Porter
True love, true love
True love

I give to you and you give to me
True love, true love
So on and on, it will always be
True love, true love

For you and I have a guardian angel
On high with nothing to do
But to give to you and to give to me
A love forever true

Always in My Heart

length: 2:22
composer: Ernesto Lecuona
lyricist: Kim Gannon

You are always in my heart (oooh)
Even though we are apart (oooh)
I can hear the music of (ooh)
The song of love
I sang with you (I sang with you)
You are always in my heart (oooh)
And when skies above are gray, (oooh)
I remember that you care (ooh)
And then and there
The sun break through
(You are always in my heart)
Just before I go to sleep
(just before I go to sleep)
There's a rendezvous I keep
(there's a rendezvous I keep)
And a dream I always meet
Helps me forget we're far apart
(when we're apart)
I don't know exactly when, dear
But I know we'll meet again, dear
And, my darling, 'til we do
You are always in my heart
(always in my heart)
(Always in my heart)
(Always in my heart)
(Ooh)
(When we're apart)
I don't know exactly when, dear
Oh, but I know we'll meet again, dear
And, my darling, 'til we do
You are always in my heart
(always in my heart)
You are always in my heart
(always in my heart)

Crying

length: 2:41
composer: Joe Melson, Roy Orbison
lyricist: Roy Orbison, Joe Melson
I was all right for a while, I could smile for a while
But I saw you last night you held my hand so tight
As you stopped to say hello
Oh, you wished me well, you couldn't tell
That I've been crying over you, crying over you
And you said, so long
Left me standing all alone
Alone and crying, crying, crying, crying
It's hard to understand but the touch of your hand
Can start me crying

I thought that I was over you
But it's true, so true
I love you even more than I did before
But darling, what can I do
For you don't love me and I'll always be
Crying over you, crying over you

Yes, now you're gone and from this moment on
I'll be crying, crying, crying, crying
Yeah, crying, crying over you

If I Give My Heart to You

length: 2:36
If I give my heart to you, will you handle it with care?
Will you always treat me tenderly and in every way be fair?
If I give my heart to you, will you give me all your love?
Will you swear that you'll be true to me by the light that shines above?
And will you sigh with me when I'm sad
Smile with me when I'm glad
And always be as you are with me tonight

Think it over and be sure
Please don't answer 'til you do
When you promise all these things to me
Then I'll give my heart to you

If I give my heart to you, will you handle it with care?
Will you always treat me tenderly and in every way be fair?
If I give my heart to you, will you give me all your love?
Will you swear that you'll be true to me by the light that shines above?
And will you sigh with me when I'm sad
Smile with me when I'm glad
And always be as you are with me tonight

Think it over and be sure
Please don't answer 'til you do
When you promise all these things to me
Then I'll give my heart to you

Please Help Me, I’m Falling

length: 2:33
composer: Hal Blair, Don Robertson
lyricist: Don Robertson, Hal Blair
Fallin, fallin'!

Please help me, I'm fallin'
In love with you;
Close the door to temptation,
Don't let me walk through!
Turn away from me, darlin',
I'm beggin' you to;
Please help me, I'm fallin'
In love with you;

I belong to another
Whose arms have grown cold,
but I promised for ever
To have and to hold!
I can never be free, dear,
But when I'm with you,
I know that I'm losin'
The will to be true!

Please help me, I'm fallin',
And that would be a sin;
Close the door to temptation,
Don't let me walk in!
For I mustn't want you,
But darlin' I do!
Please help me, I'm fallin'
In love with you.
