Why Do Fools Fall in Love

length: 2:28
writer: Morris Levy, Frankie Lymon, George Goldner, Jimmy Merchant, Herman Santiago

Why do fools fall in love?
Why do birds sing so gay?
And lovers await the break of day
Why do they fall in love?
Why does the rain fall from up above?
Why do fools fall in love?
Why do they fall in love?

Oh, love is a losing game
Love can be a shame
I know of a fool you see
For that fool is me
Tell me why, why, why
Tell me why

Why do birds sing so gay?
And lovers await the break of day
Why do they fall in love?
Oh, why does the rain fall from up above?
Why do fools fall in love?
Why do they fall in love?

Why does my heart skip a crazy beat?
And before I know, it will reach defeat
Tell my why, oh why, oh why, why do they fall in love?
Oh, why do fools fall in love?

A Thousand Miles Away

You're a thousand miles away
But I still have your love to remember you by, baby
And oh, my darling, dry your eyes
Daddy's coming home soon

On my knees every day
All I do is pray, baby, just for you
Hope you always want me too
Daddy's coming home soon

It may be on a Sunday morning
It may be on a Tuesday afternoon
But no matter what the day is
I'm going to make it my business to get home soon

You're a thousand miles away
Oh, but I still have your love to remember you by
And oh, my darling, dry your eyes, baby
Daddy's coming home soon
Oh yeah, daddy’s coming home soon

Well, your daddy don't mind, and your mommy don't mind
If we have another dance, yeah, just one more, one more time

Oh, won't you stay, just a little bit longer
Please let me hear, hear you say you will (say you will)
Oh girl, won't you place your sweet lips to mi-i-i-i-i-i-ine
Won't you say that you love me all of the time

I just want you to (stay)
Oh woah woah woah just a little bit longer, oh yeah

I Only Have Eyes for You

length: 3:27
lyricist: Al Dubin
composer: Harry Warren
My love must be a kind of blind love
I can't see anyone but you
(Sha bop sha bop)

Are the stars out tonight?
I don't know if it's cloudy or bright
I only have eyes for you, dear
(Sha bop sha bop)

The moon may be high
But I can't see a thing in the sky
I only have eyes for you

I don't know if we're in a garden
Or on a crowded avenue
(Sha bop sha bop)

You are here, so am I
Maybe millions of people go by
But they all disappear from view
And I only have eyes for you
(Sha bop sha bop)

Up on the Roof

length: 2:48
composer: Carole King
lyricist: Carole King, Gerry Goffin
When this old world starts getting me down
And people are just too much for me to face (Up on the roof)
I climb way up to the top of the stairs
And all my cares just drift right into space (Up on the roof)

On the roof, it's peaceful as can be
And there, the world below can't bother me
Let me tell you now

When I come home feeling tired and beat
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet (Up on the roof)
I get away from the hustling crowd
And all that rat race noise down in the street (Up on the roof)

On the roof's the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so
Let's go up on the roof (Up on the roof)

At night, the stars put on a show for free
And darling, you can share it all with me

I keep-a tellin’ you that right smack dab in the middle of town
I found a paradise that's trouble-free (Up on the roof)
And if this world starts getting you down
There's room enough for two up on the roof (Up on the roof)

Up on the roof (Up on the roof)
Ah, come on, baby (Up on the roof)
Ah, come on, honey (Up on the roof)
Ah, come on, baby (Up on the roof)
Ah, come on, honey (Up on the roof)
Up on the roof (Up on the roof)

I'll Come Running Back to You

length: 2:47
composer: Bill Cook
lyricist: Bill Cook
Folks say that you found someone new
To do the things I used to do for you
Just call my name, I'm not ashamed
And I'll come running back to you

Can't sleep at night, I can't eat a bite
When you were mine I didn't treat you right
Just call my name, I know, I know I'm not ashamed
And I'll come running back to you

Just like a king, I've lost everything
I sit all alone on my throne
And I've got my pride, but deep down inside
I'm yours and yours alone

I try to forget, have no regrets
This love of ours could always start anew
Just call my name, I know I'm not ashamed
I'll come running back to you

Just like a king I've lost everything
And I stood all alone on my throne
I've got my pride, but deep down inside
I'm yours and yours alone

I try to forget, have no regrets
This love of ours could always start anew
Just call my name
I know, I know, I know I'm not ashamed
I'll come running back to you

I’ll be (running)
Tell you I’ll be (running)
Running (running)
Running, I’ll be (running)
Running, running, I’ll be (running)
Running, I’ll be (running)
Running (I’ll be running)
Said I’ll be running (back) back (to you)
Oh, I’ll be (running)
Running (running)
Running, running, I’ll be (I’ll be running)
Running, yeah (running)
Oh, I’ll be running, oh yeah (I’ll be running)
Running, running, oh, running (running)
Oh, I’ll be (running) running (back) back (to you) to you, yeah

Tears on My Pillow

length: 3:15
lyricist: Al Lewis
composer: Sylvester Bradford
You don't remember me
But I remember you
Twas' not so long ago
You broke my heart in two

Tears on my pillow
Pain in my heart
Caused by you (Oooh, oooh)
You (Oooh, oooh)

If we could start anew
I wouldn't hesitate
I'd gladly take you back
And tempt the hand of fate

Tears on my pillow
Pain in my heart
Caused by you (Oooh, oooh)
You (Oooh, oooh)

Oh, love is not a gadget
And love is not a toy
When you find the one you love
She'll fill your heart with joy

If we could start anew
I wouldn't hesitate, no
I'd gladly take you back
And tempt the hand of fate

Tears on my pillow
Pain in my heart
Caused by you (Oooh, oooh)
You (Oooh, oooh)
Caused by you (Oooh, oooh)
You (Oooh, oooh)
Hey, caused by you
Caused by you (Oooh, oooh)
You (Oooh, oooh)
Caused by you

I don’t know what else to tell you, but I
Because of love are the tears that I cry
Caused by you
Caused by you, hey
You know you did it, but I’ll take you right back
So we can start this thing all over again
Caused by you (Oooh, oooh)
You (Oooh, oooh)
Caused by you (Oooh, oooh)
You (Oooh, oooh)

A Sunday Kind of Love

length: 3:15
writer: Barbara Belle, Zoe Anita Leonard, Louis Prima, Stan Rhodes
I want a Sunday kind of love
A love that lasts past Saturday night
And I wanna know that it’s more than love at first sight
‘Cause I want a Sunday kind of love
Oh, somebody help me sing it

I want a, a love that’s on the square
Can’t seem to find somebody
Someone to care
And I’m on a lonely road
That leads to nowhere
I need a Sunday kind of love
(Sunday kind of love)

I do my Sunday dreaming (dreaming)
And all my Sunday scheming (scheming)
Every minute, every hour, every day
Oh, I’m hoping to discover
A certain kind of lover
Who will show me the way

My arms need someone, someone to enfold
To keep me warm when Mondays and Tuesdays grow cold
A love for all my life to have and to hold
I want a Sunday kind of love, oh
Oh yeah

I don’t want a Monday, or no Tuesday
I don’t want no Wednesday
I don’t want no Thursday, Friday
I don’t want no Saturday love
I want that Sunday kind of love
I want that Sunday, that Sunday
That Sunday kind of love
Oh, Sunday kind of love

Anyone Who Knows What Love Is

length: 3:31
writer: Randy Newman, Jeannie Seely, Judith Arbuckle, Patmo Sheeran
Anyone
Anyone
Anyone
Anyone

You can blame me
Try to shame me
And still I'll care for you
You can run around
And even put me down
Still I'll be there for you

The world
May think I'm foolish
But they can't see you like I can
Oh, but anyone
Who knows what love is
Will understand

Anyone (Anyone)
Anyone (Anyone)
Anyone
Anyone
Anyone

I just feel so sorry (anyone)
For the ones who pity me
(Anyone) 'Cause they just don't know
(Anyone) No, they don't what happiness and true love can be

I know to ever let you go
Oh, it's more than I, than I could ever stand
Oh, but anyone who knows what love is, honey
Will understand
Oh, they don’t understand

I understand, and I believe
They may think I’m foolish, baby
They don’t understand, no
I don’t think they hear us, baby
They don’t hear us, baby
They don’t know about our love, no, no
Not a better love

Ladies Man

length: 3:27
I call her sugar pie
She’s a little diamond in the rough to me
How do I make her mine?
I’ve been looking for the right recipe
She’s heard a lot of things
Well, but nothing that she should ever take to heart
I give up everything just so she can know who I really want

See this girl’s got a smile that just keeps brightening up the day
But this girl just thinks that every single guy’s the same

She thinks I’m a ladies man, but I’m just a gentleman
‘Cause I couldn’t be the one to ever break her heart
I give her the best of me
Get rid of the rest of me
‘Cause I couldn’t be the one to ever break her heart
Oh, I’ll be the ladies man
Oh, I’ll be the ladies man
I’ll be the ladies man
I’ll be the ladies man

I just wanna take her out (Take her out)
Maybe buy her dinner at her favorite place
So she’ll know what I’m about
Wanna kiss the dimples right off her face

Hey, ‘cause this one’s got a hold of me
But I can’t help but let it be
Oh, why (Oh, why) Oh, why can’t she see
This girl got a smile that just keeps brightening up the day
This girl, she thinks that every single guy’s the same

She thinks I’m a ladies man, but I’m just a gentleman
‘Cause I couldn’t be the one to ever break her heart
I’ll give her the best of me
Get rid of the rest of me
‘Cause I couldn’t be the one to ever break her heart
Oh, I’ll be the ladies man
Oh, I’ll be the ladies man
Oh, I’ll be the ladies man
Oh, I’ll be the ladies man

See, I’d give anything just to steal one kiss
And I’d do anything just to be the one she’s with
‘Cause all I do is think of her
I just gotta have this girl
And I just can’t let her slip away

She thinks I’m a ladies man, but I’m just a gentleman
And I couldn’t be the one to ever break her heart, oh
I give her the best of me
Get rid of the rest of me
‘Cause I couldn’t be the one to ever break her heart
Oh, I’ll be the ladies man
I’ll be the ladies man
I’ll be the ladies man
Oh, I’ll be the ladies man
