We thought that love was over,
That we were really through,
I said I didn't love him,
That we'd begin anew
And you can all believe me,
We sure intended to,
But we just couldn't say goodbye.

The chair and then the sofa,
They broke right down and cried,
The curtains started waving
For me to come inside.
I tell you confidentially,
The tears were hard to hide,
And we just couldn't say goodbye.

The clock was striking twelve o'clock
It smiled on us below,
With folded hands it seemed to say,
"We'll miss you if you go."

So I went back and kissed him,
And when I looked around,
The room was singing love songs,
And dancing up and down.
And now we're both so happy,
Because at last we've found.
That we just couldn't say goodbye.

People in love are funny
They're mighty hard to explain
One minute they quarrel
Then they're back together again
Take my case for instance
We had a little fuss
Now listen, ladies and gentlemen
Here's what happened to us

I said I didn't love him,
That we'd begin anew

But we just couldn't say goodbye.
The chair and then the sofa,
They broke right down and cried,

I tell you confidentially,
The tears were hard to hide,
And we just couldn't say goodbye.

So I went back and kissed him,
And when I looked around,
The room was singing love songs,
And dancing up and down.
And now we're both so happy,
Because at last we've found.
That we just couldn't say goodbye.

Shaking like a leaf on a tree
That's coming loose from the stem
Shaking like a leaf on a tree
Because I'm coming loose from my man

I'm like a weeping willow
Weeping on my pillow
For years & years
There ain't no sweet man
That's worth the salt of my tears

Down & down he dragged me
Like a fiend he nagged me
For years & years
There ain't no sweet man
That's worth the salt of my tears

Although I may be blue
Still I'm through
I must tell him goodbye
Rather than have that man
Gonna lay me down & just die

So, broken hearted sisters
Aggravating misters
Lend me your ears
There ain't no sweet man
That's worth the salt of my tears

Although I may be blue
Still I'm through
I must tell him goodbye
Rather than have that man
Gonna lay me down & just die

So, broken hearted sisters
Aggravating misters
Lend me your ears
There ain't no sweet man

Here I am, lonely,
Tired and lonely,
Crying for home in vain,
Just like a butterfly that's caught in the rain!

Longing for flowers,
Dreaming of hours
Back in the sun-kissed lane,
Just like a butterfly that's caught in the rain!

I know that all of the world is cheery
By that old cottage door,
Why are my wings so weary?
I can't fly any more!

Here I am praying,
Brokenly saying,
"Give me the sun again!",
Just like a butterfly that's caught in the rain!

When it's raining from the sky,
And I see a butterfly,
I can almost hear him sighing
'Cause he has to stop his flying.
I can easily sympathise
With those helpless butterflies!

Here I am, lonely,
Tired and lonely,
Crying for home in vain,
Just like a butterfly that's caught in the rain!

Longing for flowers,
Dreaming of hours
Back in the sun-kissed lane,
Just like a butterfly that's caught in the rain!

I know that all of the world is cheery
By that old cottage door,
Why are my wings so weary?
I can't fly any more!

Here I am praying,
Brokenly saying,
"Give me the sun again!",
Just like a butterfly that's caught in the rain!

All dolled up in your glad rags,
But tomorrow may turn to sad rags,
And they call you glad rag doll!

I know that you're admired,
I know that you're desired
But only by the fellows who soon grow tired,
My poor little glad rag doll!

You're just a pretty little toy the boys like to play with,
You're not the kind that they choose to grow old and grey with!

Now don't you make this, this the end dear,
It's never too late to make amends dear,
My poor little glad rag doll!

You're just a pretty little toy the boys like to play with,
You're not the kind
They have on their mind,
You're just a toy for them today,
So listen to the things I say!

It's never too late to make amends dear,
My poor little glad rag doll!

We used to walk and talk darling each other sing
But I know now you don't mean a thing
I'm a little mixed up ,mixed up about you
I'm just a little mixed up and I don't know what to do

I'm just a mixed up,mixed up,mixed up fool
Mixed up all 'cause of you
I'm a little mixed up ,mixed up about you
I'm just a little mixed up and I don't know what to do

Now you listen here baby what I have to say
If you don't want me I'll be on my way
I'm a little mixed up ,mixed up about you
I'm just a little mixed up and I don't know what to do

And now you listen here baby won't you come on home
I'm sitting here crying and I'm all alone
I'm a little mixed up ,mixed up about you
I'm just a little mixed up and I don't know what to do

Shadows slowly creeping down the prairie trail
Everything is sleeping - ah, but the nightingale

Moon will soon be climbing in the purple sky
Night winds all a-humming this tender lullaby.

Cares of the day have fled
My little sleepyhead
Stars are in the sky
Time that the prayers were said
My little sleepyhead
To a prairie lullaby

Saddle up your pony
The sandman's here
To guide you down the trail of dreams
Tumble in bed my tired
My little sleepyhead,
To a prairie lullaby

Saddle up your pony
The sandman's here
To guide you down the trail of dreams
Tumble in bed my tired
My little sleepyhead
To a prairie lullaby

writer: Ralph Rainger, Leo Robin
Night winds, cold and melancholy,
Wave a blue finale
For my tragedy.
Life a miserary,
Meant only for me,
While I linger, weary,
'Neath a willow tree.

Right here our romance was started,
Here again we parted
When I set you free.
All my thoughts are jumbled,
Everything is blurred,
All the world has crumbled,
Shattered by word.

My end has come,
My heart is numb,
'Twas like a bolt from the blue above.
I can't believe it but you're gone, darling,
And here lies love.

The sky is dark
And I hear a lark,
He sounds as sad as a mournful dove.
The dew appears like the tears of dawn, darling,
For here lies love.

All my dreams lost beyond recall,
Dreams of Spring blasted in the Fall,
You gave lips, you gave arms,
I gave all!

I ought to cry,
My eyes are dry,
There's only one thing I'm conscious of;
I only know that I can't go on, darling,
Here lies love.

My end has come,
My heart is numb,
'Twas like a bolt from the blue above.
I can't believe it but you're gone, darling,
And here lies love.

I only know that I can't go on, darling,
For here lies love.

I used to love you but it's all over,

That you turned me down,
But you shouldn't let that kind of story go 'round!

For you had your chance but now it's all over,
I'll get along somehow!
Now there are things that you did
I used to forgive,
I used to love you but it's all over,
All over now!
But you'll never change just as long as you live!
I used to love you but it's all over,
All over now!

The angels are crying, they are shedding their tears,
That's why the rain falls from the sky.
The storm will pass away, there'll come a brighter day,
So cheer up now and dry your eyes.

Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain.

Let the love in your heart remain.
Though the dark clouds make you blue and we haven't much it's true,
Still I'm lucky to have someone like you.

Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain.

But I know we'll be happy again, we shouldn't worry about the weather,
Just so long as we're together.
Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain.

Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain.
Let the love in your heart remain.
Though the dark clouds make you blue and we haven't much it's true,
Still I'm lucky to have someone like you.

Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain.
But I know we'll be happy again, we shouldn't worry about the weather,
Just so long as we're together.

Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain.
Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain.
Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain.

Now my room has got two windows but the sunshine never comes thru,
You know it's always dark and dreary since I broke off, baby, with
You!

[Chorus]
I live on a lonely avenue,
My little girl wouldn't say, "I do".
Well, I feel so sad and blue
And it's all because of you.
I could cry, I could cry, I could cry,
I could die, I could die, I could die,
Because I live on a lonely avenue, lonely avenue.

(Now my) covers they feel like lead and my pillow it feels like
Stone,
Well, I've tossed and turned so ev'ry night,
I'm not used to being alone!

[Chorus]

Now I've been so sad and lonesome since you've left this town,
If I could beg or borrow the money, child, I would be a highway
Bound!

[Chorus]

There’s a sound in the wind, blowing down the road I’ve been
I can hear it cry while shadows steal the Sun
But I can not look back now, come too far to turn around
And there’s still a race ahead, I must run

I’m only half way home
I got a journey on, where I’ll find the things I have lost
I’ve come a long, long road
Still I’ve got miles to go
I’ve got a wide, wide river to cross

I have stumbled, I have strayed
You can trace the tracks I’ve made
All across the memories, why aren’t we gone
But I’m just a refugee, won’t you sing a ṗrayer for me
Cause sometimes even the strongest soldiers falls

I’m only half way home
I got a journey on, where I’ll find the things I have lost
I’ve come a long, long road
Still I’ve got miles to go
I’ve got a wide, wide river to cross
I’ve got a wide, wide river to cross
I’ve got a wide, wide river to cross

Come on bring up the curtain and let the play being
We are actors and here's our gig
Life's a stage where it takes your best to win
So give it your all folks while you may
Too soon the shadows they call
And someday that curtain will fall

If you are rich , if you are poor
It's all the same I'm sure
When the curtain comes down

Just go along doing your best
And you'll find peace and rest
When the curtain comes down

What if everything goes wrong
What if sorrow comes along
Hide your feelings from the throne
Life can't always be a song

While you are here if you play fair
You will be welcomed up there
When the curtain comes down

While the heroes are applauded
The villain is hist
The heroin's happy
She's fond of and pissed
We smile at the ending
We'll laugh at the clown
And when it's all over
The curtain,the curtain comes down

As Long as I Love

length: 2:30
writer: Milton Drake, George Jessel, Ben Oakland
As long as I love
I'll always adore you
As long as I love
You'll always be mine

I'll make a crown of sparkling stars for you
Gathered from the skies
But how can I compare them to
The starlight shine in your eyes

As long as I breathe
I'll whisper I need you
As long as my lips
Can whisper your name

The sight of you will send me soaring
Above the skies, above
As long as I dream as long as I live
As long as I love

Garden in the Rain

length: 2:56
lyricist: James Dyrenforth
composer: Carroll Gibbons

T'was just a garden in the rain
Close to a little leafy lane
A touch of color 'neath skies of gray
The raindrops kissed the flowerbeds
The blossoms raised their thirsty heads
A perfumed thank you
They seemed to say

Surely here was charm beyond
Compare to view
Maybe it was just that
I was there with you

T'was just a garden in the rain
But then the sun came out again
And sent us happily on our way



There Ain't No Sweet Man That's Worth the Salt of My Tears (alternate version)

length: 2:07
composer: Fred Fisher
lyricist: Fred Fisher
Shaking like a leaf on a tree
That's coming loose from the stem
Shaking like a leaf on a tree
Because I'm coming loose from my man

I'm like a weeping willow
Weeping on my pillow
For years & years
There ain't no sweet man
That's worth the salt of my tears

Down & down he dragged me
Like a fiend he nagged me
For years & years
There ain't no sweet man
That's worth the salt of my tears

Although I may be blue
Still I'm through
I must tell him goodbye
Rather than have that man
Gonna lay me down & just die

So, broken hearted sisters
Aggravating misters
Lend me your ears
There ain't no sweet man
That's worth the salt of my tears

Although I may be blue
Still I'm through
I must tell him goodbye
Rather than have that man
Gonna lay me down & just die

So, broken hearted sisters
Aggravating misters
Lend me your ears
There ain't no sweet man
