I'm singin' in the rain
Just singin' in the rain
What a glorious feeling
I'm happy again
I'm laughin' at clouds
So dark up above
The sun's in my heart
And I'm ready for love
Let the stormy clouds chase
Everyone from the place
Come on with the rain
I've a smile on my face
I'll walk down the lane
With a happy refrain
Just singin'
Singin' in the rain

Dancin' in the rain
Da da da da da da
I'm happy again

I'm dancin'
And singin'
In the rain

I Got Rhythm

length: 3:44
composer: George Gershwin
lyricist: Ira Gershwin
Days can be sunny, with never a sigh
Don't need what money can buy
Birds in the trees sing their day full of song
Why shouldn't we sing along?

I'm chipper all the day, happy with my lot
How do I get that way? Look at what I've got

I got rhythm, I got music
I got my man
Who could ask for anything more?
I got daisys, in green pastures
I got my man
Who could ask for anything more?

Old man trouble
I don't mind him
You won't find him 'round my door
I got starlight
I got sweet dreams
I got my man
Who could ask for anything more ?

Old man trouble
I don't mind him
You won't find him, 'round my door
I got startlight
I got sweet dreams
I got my man
Who could ask for anything more ?

I got rhythm, I got music
I got daisys, in green pastures
I got startlight
I got sweet dreams
I got my man
Who could ask for anything more ?

Almost Like Being in Love

length: 4:23
arranger: Conrad Salinger
orchestrator: Bob Franklyn
conductor: Johnny Green
orchestra: MGM Studio Orchestra
vocal: Gene Kelly
composer: Frederick Loewe
lyricist: Alan Jay Lerner
What a day this has been!
What a rare mood I'm in!
Why, it's almost like being in love

There's a smile on my face
For the whole human race
Why it's almost like being in love

All the music of life seems to be
Like a bell that is ringing for me
And from the way that I feel
When the bell starts to peal
I would swear I was falling
I could swear I was falling
It's almost like being in love

For Me and My Gal

length: 4:25
The bells are ringing for me and my gal.
The birds are singing for me and my gal.
Ev'rybody's been knowing to a wedding they're going.
And for weeks they've been sewing every Suzie and Sal.
They're congregating for me and my gal.
The parson's waiting for me and my gal.
And sometime I'm gonna build a little home for two for three or four or more
In love land, for me and my gal.

Love Is Here to Stay

length: 3:54
It's very clear, our love is here to stay
Not for a year but ever and a day
The radio and the telephone and the movies that we know
May just be passing fancies and in time may go

But oh, my dear, our love is here to stay
Together we're going a long, long way
In time the Rockies may crumble, Gibraltar may tumble
They're only made of clay
But our love is here to stay

In time the Rockies may crumble, Gibraltar may tumble
They're only made of clay
But our love is here to stay

Good Morning

length: 3:25
Good Morning
Good Morning
We've talked the whole night through
Good Morning
Good Morning to you
Good Morning
Good Morning
It's great to stay up late
Good Morning
Good Morning to you
When the band began to play the stars were shinging bright
Now the milkman's on his way and it's too late to say good night
So, Good Morning
Good Morning
Sun beams will soon smile through
Good Morning
Good Morning to you and you and you and you
Good Morning
Good Morning
We've gabbed the whole night through
Good Morning
Good Morning to you

In the morning
In the morning
It's great to stay up late
Good Morning
Good Morning to you

When we left the movie show the future wasn't bright
But came the dawn
the show goes on and I don't want to say good night
So say good morning
Good Morning
Rainbows are shining through
Good Morning
Good Morning

You Wonderful You

length: 3:11
I'm glad I met you
You wonderful you
I can't forget you
You wonderful you
You're like a breath of spring
A whole new thing that's happened
And without much adue
I look at you and
There stands love
My arms around you
That's wonderful too
So glad I found you
You wonderful you
Remember
Finders' keepers
Loosers weepers
And because it's true
You're mine now
You wonderful you.

Dig, Dig, Dig, for Your Dinner

length: 4:08

I don't want to sound like I'm preachin' a sermon
But I've heard people say:
The early bird catches the worm;
'N there's a lot of good logic in that old cliche
There are certain obligations you just can't shirk
You've got to put the heat on to make the kettle perk;
And if you want it to be a good day
You've got to do a good day's work

Chorus 1:
You've gotta dig, dig, dig, dig for your dinner
Nothin's what you get for free
You've gotta dig, dig, dig, dig for your dinner
Never was a money tree
And furthermore, my friends, I must repeat
Nobody's livin' down on Easy Street;
And if you want to owe for groceries
You're gonna get an awful lot of "No sir-ee's."
You've gotta dig, dig, dig, dig for a dollar
'Taint as simple as you think
You can't purloin a sirloin
Or the butcher will put you in the clink
You just can't be a lazy bird
You've gotta get off o' your twig;
So you can afford your room and your board
And it's nice to have the price of a "cig."
Say, you've gotta pay the fiddler man
If you want to do a jig
You've gotta be as busy as a bee
To be a Mister B. I. G
And if you want some dig-dig-dignity
You've gotta dig, dig, dig, dig, dig for your dinner
Dig, dig, dig, dig, dig

Chorus 2:
You've gotta dig, dig, dig, dig for your dinner
Nothin's what you get for free
You've gotta dig, dig, dig, dig for your dinner
Never was a money tree
And furthermore, my friends, I must repeat
Nobody's livin' down on Easy Street;
And if you want to owe for groceries
You're gonna get an awful lot of "No sir-ee's."
You've gotta dig, dig, dig, dig for a dollar
'Taint as simple as you think
You can't purloin a sirloin
Or the butcher will put you in the clink
You just can't be a lazy bird
You've gotta get off o' your twig;
So you can afford your room and your board
And it's nice to have the price of a "cig."
Say, you've gotta pay the fiddler man
If you want to do a jig
You've gotta be as busy as a bee
To be a Mister B. I. G
And if you want some dig-dig-dignity
You've gotta dig, dig, dig, dig, dig for your dinner
Dig, dig, dig, dig, dig
(Spoken:) Right!

Movie version:

Verse:
(Kelly (spoken):) I don't want to sound like I'm preachin' a sermon
(Silvers (spoken):) Oh, preach to me, preach!
(Kelly (sung):) But I've heard people say:
(Silvers (spoken:) What did they say?
(Kelly (spoken:) They said, uh...
(Kelly (sung):) The early bird catches the worm...
'N there's a lot of good logic in that old cliche
(Silvers (spoken:) You know he's right, listen to him children, he's right!
(Kelly (sung):) There are certain obligations you just can't shirk
You've got to put the heat on to make the kettle perk
(Silvers (spoken):) Now ain't dat da troo...?
Are ya list'nin' to da man?
Dis is da man who saved me...
I was wicked
I was mad
But dis is de man who showed me da way
Dis is da man who took me by da han' up to da glory room
Dis is da man who showed me da light
Dis man here, dis is da man who gave me da beat
Dis is da man who made me be righteous
Dis man...
(Kelly (sung):) And if you want it to be a good day
You've gotta do a good day's work;

Chorus:
You've gotta dig, dig, dig, dig for your dinner
Nothin's what you get for free
You've gotta dig, dig, dig, dig for your dinner
Never was a money tree
And furthermore, my friends, I must repeat
Nobody's livin' down on Easy Street;
And if you want to owe for groceries

Be a Clown

length: 2:39
composer: Cole Porter
lyricist: Cole Porter
I'll remember forever
When I was but three
Mama, who was clever
Remarking to me
If son when you're grown up
You want everything nice
I've got your future sewn up
If you take this advice

Be a clown, be a clown
All the world loves a clown
Act the fool, play the calf
And you'll always have the last laugh

Wear the cap and the bells
And you'll rate with all the great swells
If you become a doctor, folks'll face you with dread
If you become a dentist, they'll be glad when you're dead
You'll get a bigger hand if you can stand on your head
Be a clown, be a clown, be a clown

Be a clown, be a clown
All the world loves a clown
Show 'em tricks, tell 'em jokes
And you'll only stop with top folks

Be a crack Jackanapes
And they'll imitate you like apes
Why be a great composer with your rent in arrears
Why be a major poet and you'll owe it for years
When crowds'll pay to giggle if you wiggle your ears
Be a clown, be a clown, be a clown

Be a clown, be a clown
All the world loves a clown
If you just make 'em roar
Watch your Mounte bank account soar

Wear a painted mustache
And you're sure to make a big splash
A college education I should never propose
A bachelor's degree won't even keep you in clothes
But millions you will win if you can spin on your nose
Be a clown, be a clown, be a clown

Give 'em quips, give 'em fun
And they'll happy to say you're A-1
If you become a farmer you've the weather to buck
If you become a gambler you'll be stuck with your luck
But Jack you'll never lack if you can quack like a duck
Be a clown, be a clown, be a clown

You Were Meant for Me

length: 3:41
You were meant for me, I was meant for you
Nature patterned you and when she was done
You were all the sweet things rolled up in one
You're like a plaintive melody
That never lets me free
For I'm content the angels must have sent you
And they meant you just for me

You were meant for me, I was meant for you
Nature patterned you and when she was done
You were all the sweet things rolled up in one
You're like a plaintive melody
That never lets me free
For I'm content the angels must have sent you
And they meant you just for me

I Like My Self

length: 4:07
composer: André Previn
lyricist: Adolph Green, Betty Comden
Why am I feeling so good?
Why am I feeling so strong?
Why am I feeling when things could look black
That nothing could possibly go wrong?
This has been a most unusual day:
Love has made me see things in a different way.
Can it be? I like myself.
She likes me, so I like myself.
If someone wonderful as she is can think I'm wonderful
I must be quite a guy!
Feeling so unlike myself,
Always used to dislike myself.
But now my love has got me riding high!
She likes me, so so do I!

'S Wonderful

length: 2:49
vocal: Gene Kelly
composer: George Gershwin
lyricist: Ira Gershwin
Don't mind telling you in my humble fashion
That you thrill me through with a tender passion
When you said you care, imagine my emotion
I swore then and there, permanent devotion

You made all other men seem blah
Just you alone filled me with, ahh
'S wonderful, 's marvelous
You should care for me

'S awful nice, 's paradise
'S what I love to see
You've made my life so glamorous
You can't blame me for feeling amorous

Oh, 's wonderful, 's marvelous
That you should care for me!
'S magnificque, 's what I seek
You should care for me

'S elegant, 's what I want
'S what I love to see
My dear, it's four-leaved-clover time
From now on my heart's working overtime

'S exceptional, 's no bagatelle
That you should care for
That you should care for
That you should care for me
