That’s Life

length: 3:08
producer: Jimmy Bowen
arranger: Ernie Freeman
conductor: Ernie Freeman
vocal: Frank Sinatra
lyricist: Kelly Gordon, Dean Kay
composer: Dean Kay

That's life, that's what people say.
You're riding high in April,
Shot down in May.
But I know I'm gonna change their tune,
When I'm right back on top in June.

That's life, funny as it seems.
Some people get their kicks,
Steppin' on dreams
But I just can't let it get me down,
Cause this big old world keeps spinnin' around.

I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate,
A poet, a pawn and a king.
I've been up and down and over and out
But I know one thing:
Each time I find myself flat on my face,
I pick myself up and get back in the race.

That's life, I can't deny it,
I thought of quitting,
But my heart just won't buy it.
Cause if I didn't think it was worth a try,
I'd have to roll myself up in a big ball and die.

I Will Wait for You

length: 2:18
producer: Jimmy Bowen
arranger: Ernie Freeman
vocal: Frank Sinatra
conductor: Ernie Freeman
translator: Norman Gimbel
composer: Michel Legrand
lyricist: Jacques Demy
The clock will tick away the hours
One by one,
Then the time will come
When all the waiting's done,
The time when you return
And find me here and run.

If it takes forever
I will wait for you,
For a thousand summers
I will wait for you,
Till you're here back,
Back beside me,
Till I'm holding you,
Till I hear you sigh
Here in my arms.

Anywhere you wander,
Anywhere you go,
Every day remember
How I love you so,
In your heart believe
What in my heart I know,
That forevermore,
I'll wait for you.

Somewhere My Love

length: 2:18
producer: Jimmy Bowen
arranger: Ernie Freeman
vocal: Frank Sinatra
conductor: Ernie Freeman
composer: Maurice Jarre
lyricist: Paul Francis Webster
Somewhere, my love there will be songs to sing
Although the snow covers the hope of spring
Somewhere a hill blossoms in green and gold
And there are dreams all that your heart can hold

Someday we'll meet again my love
Someday whenever the spring breaks through

You'll come to me out of the long ago
Warm as the wind, soft as the kiss of snow
Lara my own, think of me now and then
God speed my love till you are mine again

You'll come to me out of the long ago
Warm as the wind soft as the kiss of snow
Till then my sweet think of me now and then
God speed my love 'til you are mine again

Sand and Sea

length: 2:28
producer: Jimmy Bowen
arranger: Ernie Freeman
vocal: Frank Sinatra
conductor: Ernie Freeman
lyricist: Maurice Vidalin
composer: Gilbert Bécaud
translator: Mack David
Sand and sea, sea and sand
And the warm bright sun up there above
Summer days, happy days
With my love

Sand and sea, sea and sand
Hear the wings in flight of the lovely dove
Summer nights, happy nights
We were makin' love

The blinking stars are dancing on the whitecaps
Crazy stars, they've had too many nightcaps
I touch your hand, the hand that lies beside me
Paradise can't be far if you'll guide me

Sand and sea, sea and sand
And the angels sing from above
Happy days, hey, happy nights
Makin' love

Sand and sea, sea and sand
And the angels sing from above
Happy days, happy nights
Makin' love

We're in love
Oooh-oooh makin' love

Sand and sea
Sea and sand

What Now My Love

length: 2:31
producer: Jimmy Bowen
arranger: Ernie Freeman
vocal: Frank Sinatra
conductor: Ernie Freeman
composer: Gilbert Bécaud
lyricist: Pierre Delanoë
translator: Carl Sigman
What now my love, now that you've left me
How can I live through another day
Watching my dreams turn to ashes
And my hopes turn to bits of clay

Once I could see, once I could feel
Now I am numb, I've become unreal
I walk the night, without a goal
Stripped of my heart and my soul

What now my love, now that it's over
I feel the world falling all around me
Here come the stars, tumbling around me
There's the sky, where that sea should be

What now my love, now that you're gone
I'd be a fool to go on and on
No one would care, no one would cry
If I should live if I should live or die

What now my love, now there is nothing
Only my last, my last good-bye

(G. Stephens)
[Recorded November 17, 1966, Hollywood]

Oooh, Winchester Cathedral, you're bringin' me down
You stood and you watched as my baby left town
You coulda done somethin', hey, you didn't try
You didn't do nothin', you just let her walk by

Now everyone knows just how much I needed that girl
She wouldn't have gone far away if only you'd started ringin' your bell

Winchester Cathedral, you're bringin' me down
You stood and you watched as my baby left town

Hey, Winchester Cathedral, you are bringin' me down
You stood and you watched as, you watched her go by, my baby left town
You coulda done somethin', but you didn't even try
You didn't do nothin', you didn't ding-dong, you let her get by

Now everyone knows just how much I needed that girl
She wouldn't have gone far away, if only you'd started ringin' your bell

Now, Winchester Cathedral, man, you've brought me down
You just stood there and watched as my baby left town!

Give Her Love

length: 2:13

vocal: Frank Sinatra
conductor: Ernie Freeman
composer: Jim Harbert
lyricist: Jim Harbert
Give her sunshine in your smile
Give her pleasure all the while
Turn her thoughts from clouds of gray
Give her strength to face each day

Give her laughter be her friend
Stay beside her till the end
But, in giving all else above,
Don't forget to give her love

But, in giving all else above,
Don't forget to give her love

Tell Her (You Love Her Each Day)

length: 2:43
producer: Jimmy Bowen
arranger: Ernie Freeman
vocal: Frank Sinatra
orchestra: Gordon Jenkins & His Orchestra
conductor: Gordon Jenkins and Ernie Freeman
writer: Gil Ward, Charles Watkins
(Tell her you love her) each day
You'll make her happy that way
A simple "I love you" means more than money
And, with a kiss or two her life is sunny

Give her a reason to live
She needs the love that you give
Always remember that is what she lives for
She hopes you love her
Tell her you love her
Tell her you love her today

(Give her a reason to live)
(She needs the love that you give)
Always remember that is what she lives for
She hopes you love her
Tell her you love her
Tell her you love her today

The Impossible Dream

length: 2:32
producer: Jimmy Bowen
arranger: Ernie Freeman
vocal: Frank Sinatra
conductor: Ernie Freeman
composer: Mitch Leigh
lyricist: Joe Darion
To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go

To right the unrightable wrong
To be better far than you are
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star

This is my quest, to follow that star
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far
To be willing to give when there's no more to give
To be willing to die so that honor and justice may live
And I know if I'll only be true to this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm when I'm laid to my rest

And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars,
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star

You’re Gonna Hear From Me

length: 2:57
producer: Jimmy Bowen
arranger: Ernie Freeman
vocal: Frank Sinatra
conductor: Ernie Freeman
composer: André Previn
lyricist: Dory Previn
orchestrator: Alexander Courage
Move over, sun, and give me some sky
I got me some wings I'm eager to try
I may be unknown but wait till I've flown
You're gonna hear from me

Make me some room, you people up there
On top of the world, I'll meet you, I swear
I'm stakin' my claim, so remember my name
You're gonna hear from me

Fortune, smile on the road before me
I am fortune's child
Listen, world, you can't ignore me

I've got a song that longs to be played
Raise up my flag, begin my parade
Then watch the world over start comin' up Clover
That's how it's gonna be

I've got a song that longs to be played
Raise up my flag, begin my parade
Then watch the world over start comin' up Clover
That's how it's gonna be, watch me
You're gonna hear, you're gonna hear from me
