Tracklist

Days of Wine and Roses

length: 2:17
arranger: Nelson Riddle
conductor: Nelson Riddle
vocal: Frank Sinatra
lyricist: Johnny Mercer
composer: Henry Mancini

The days of wine and roses laugh and run away like a child at play
Through the meadow land toward a closing door
A door marked "nevermore" that wasn't there before

The lone-ly night discloses just a passing breeze filled with memories
Of the golden smile that introduced me to
The days of wine and roses and you

The days of wine and roses
[more instrumental-rest of the first verse]

The lonely - the night discloses just a passing breeze filled with memories
Of the golden smile that introduced me to
The days of wine and roses and you

Moon River

length: 3:20
arranger: Nelson Riddle
conductor: Nelson Riddle
vocal: Frank Sinatra
lyricist: Johnny Mercer
composer: Henry Mancini
Moon river wider than a mile
I'm crossing you in style someday
You dream maker, you heartbreaker
Wherever you're going I'm going your way
Two drifters off to see the world

There's such a lot of world to see
We're after the same rainbows end
Waiting round the band
My huckleberry friend, moon river
And me

The Way You Look Tonight

length: 3:23
arranger: Nelson Riddle
conductor: Nelson Riddle
vocal: Frank Sinatra
lyricist: Dorothy Fields
composer: Jerome Kern
publishing: Jerome Kern
Some day, when I'm awfully low,
When the world is cold,
I will feel a glow just thinking of you
And the way you look tonight.

Yes you're lovely, with your smile so warm
And your cheeks so soft,
There is nothing for me but to love you,
And the way you look tonight.

With each word your tenderness grows,
Tearing my fear apart
And that laugh that wrinkles your nose,
It touches my foolish heart.

Lovely, never, ever change.
Keep that breathless charm.
Won't you please arrange it ?
Cause I love you, just the way you look tonight.

Mm, mm, mm, mm,
Just the way you look to-night.

Three Coins in the Fountain

length: 3:46
arranger: Nelson Riddle
conductor: Nelson Riddle
vocal: Frank Sinatra
composer: Jule Styne
lyricist: Sammy Cahn
Three coins in the fountain
Each one seeking happiness
(Thrown by three hopeful lovers)
(Which one will the fountain bless?)

Three hearts in the fountain
Each heart longing for its home
(There they lie in the fountain)
(Somewhere in the heart of Rome)

Which one will the fountain bless?
Which one will the fountain bless?

Three coins in the fountain
Through the ripples how they shine
(Just one wish will be granted)
(One heart will wear a valentine)

Make it mine!
Make it mine!
Make it mine!

Which one will the fountain bless?
Which one will the fountain bless?

Three coins in the fountain
Through the ripples how they shine
(Just one wish will be granted)
(One heart will wear a valentine)

Make it mine!
Make it mine!
Make it mine!

In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening

length: 1:52
arranger: Nelson Riddle
conductor: Nelson Riddle
vocal: Frank Sinatra
composer: Hoagy Carmichael
lyricist: Johnny Mercer
Sue wants a barbecue, Sam wants to boil a ham,
Grace votes for bouillabaisse too
Jake wants a weenie bake, steak and the layer cake,
And he'll get a tummy ache too.
We'll rent a tent or a tee pee, let the town crier cry.
And if it's on a ditty, this is what I'll reply.

In the cool, cool, cool of the evening, tell 'em I'll be there,
In the cool, cool, cool of the evening, better save a chair.
Oh, when the party's a-getting a glow on, and singing fills the air,
In the shank of the night when the doing's all right,
You can tell 'em I'll be there.

Oh when the party's a-getting a glow on, and the singing fills the air,
In the shank of the night when the doing's all right,
You can tell them I'll be there.
In the shank of the night when the doing's all right,
You can tell them I'll be there.

Secret Love

length: 3:55
arranger: Nelson Riddle
conductor: Nelson Riddle
vocal: Frank Sinatra
composer: Sammy Fain
lyricist: Paul Francis Webster
Once I had a secret love that lived within the heart of me,
All too soon my secret love became impatient to be free.
So I asked a friendly star the way that lovers often do
Just how wonderful you are and why I'm so in love with you.
Now I shout it from the highest hill, even told the golden daffodils,
And now my heart's an open door, and my secret love's no secret any more.

Swinging on a Star

length: 2:54
arranger: Nelson Riddle
conductor: Nelson Riddle
vocal: Frank Sinatra
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
Kicks up at anything he hears
His back is brawny and 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 ain't 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
And 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
Every day you 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

It Might as Well Be Spring

length: 3:27
arranger: Nelson Riddle
conductor: Nelson Riddle
vocal: Frank Sinatra
lyricist: Oscar Hammerstein II, Oscar Hammerstein II
composer: Richard Rodgers, Richard Rodgers
I'm as restless as a willow in a windstorm
I'm as jumpy as puppet on a string
I'd say that I had spring fever
But I know it isn't spring
I am starry eyed and vaguely discontented
Like a nightingale without a song to sing
O why should I have spring fever
When it isn't even spring
I keep I were someone else
Walking down a strange new street
And hearing words that I've never head
From a girl I've yet to meet
I'm as busy as spider spinning daydreams
Spinning spinning daydreams
I'm as giggy as a baby on a swing
I haven't seen a crocus or a rosebud
Or a robin on the wing
But I feel so gay in a melancholy way
That it might as well be spring
It might as
Well be
Spring

The Continental

length: 3:15
arranger: Nelson Riddle
conductor: Nelson Riddle
vocal: Frank Sinatra
lyricist: Herb Magidson, Herb Magidson
composer: Con Conrad, Con Conrad
Beautiful music
Dangerous rhythm
It's something daring, the Continental
A way of dancing that's really ultra-new

It's very subtle, the Continental
Because it does what you want it to do
It has a passion, the Continental
An invitation to moonlight and romance

It's quite the fashion, the Continental
Because you tell of your love while you dance
You kiss while you're dancing
It's continental, ooh, it's continental

You sing while you're dancing
Your voice is gentle and so sentimental
You'll know before the dance is through
That you're in love with her and she's in love with you

You'll find while you're dancin'
That there's a rhythm in your heart and soul
A certain rhythm that you can't control
And you will do the Continental all the time

You'll find while you're dancin'
That there's a rhythm in your heart and soul
A certain rhythm that you can't control
And you will do the Continental all the time

Beautiful music
Dangerous rhythm
The Continental

Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing

length: 3:23

conductor: Nelson Riddle
vocal: Frank Sinatra
lyricist: Paul Francis Webster, Paul Francis Webster
composer: Sammy Fain, Sammy Fain
Love is a many splendored thing
It's the April rose that only grows in the early Spring
Love is nature's way of giving a reason to be living
The golden crown that makes a man a king
Once on a high and windy hill, In the morning mist
Two lovers kissed and the world stood still
Then your fingers touched my silent heart and taught it how to sing
Yes, true love's a many splendored thing

Love is a many splendored thing
It's the April rose that only grows in the early Spring
Love is nature's way of giving a reason to be living
The golden crown that makes a man a king
Once on a high and windy hill, In the morning mist
Two lovers kissed and the world stood still
Then your fingers touched my silent heart and taught it how to sing
Yes, true love's a many splendored thing

All the Way

When somebody loves you
It's no good unless he loves you, all the way
Happy to be near you
When you need someone to cheer you, all the way

Taller than the tallest tree is
That's how it's got to feel
Deeper than the deep blue see is
That's how deep it goes, if its real

When somebody needs you
It's no good unless he needs you, all the way
Through the good or lean years
And for all the in between years, come what may

Who know where the road will lead us
Only a fool would say
But if you'll let me love you
It's for sure I'm gonna love you, all the way, all the way
