Tracklist

By Myself

length: 2:38
lyricist: Howard Dietz
composer: Arthur Schwartz

I'll go, I'll go, I'll go my way by myself
This is the end of romance
I'll go my way by myself, love is only a dance

I'll try to apply myself and teach my heart how to sing
I'll go my way by myself like a bird on the wing
I'll face the unknown, I'll build a world of my own
No one knows better than I myself, I'm by myself alone

I'm sure that love's an overrated past time
It's the last time I'll ever be anything but fancy free
For love is just a junior high version, one way excursion
I'm sure that I am old enough to fly alone

And I'll face the unknown, I'll build a world of my own
No one knows better than I myself
I'm by myself alone, I'll go, I'll go by myself alone

Little Girl Blue

length: 3:41
lyricist: Lorenz Hart
composer: Richard Rodgers
When you were very young, the world was younger than you
As merry as a carousel
The circus tent was strung with ever star in the sky
Above the ring you loved show well
Now the young world has grown old
Gone are the silver and gold

Sit there, and count your fingers
What can you do?
Old girl you're through
Just sit there and count your little fingers
Unhappy little girl blue

Sit there and count the raindrops
Falling on you
It's time you knew
All you can count on are the raindrops
That fall on little girl blue

No use, oh girl, you might as well surrender
You're hopes are getting slender
Why won't somebody send a tender
Blue boy to cheer up little girl blue.

Me and My Shadow

length: 3:43
writer: Al Jolson
composer: Dave Dreyer
lyricist: Billy Rose
Shades of night are falling and I'm lonely
Standing on the corner feeling blue
Sweethearts out for fun
Pass me one by one
Guess I'll wind up like I always do
With only
Me and my shadow
Strolling down the avenue
Me and my shadow
Not a soul to tell our troubles to
And when it's twelve o'clock
We climb the stair
We never knock
For nobody's there
Just me and my shadow
All alone and feeling blue
When the sun sets on the far horizon
And the parlor lamps begin to glow
Jim and Jack and John
Put their slippers on
They're all set but we'restill on the go
So lonely
Me and my shadow
Strolling down the avenue
Me and my shadow
Not a soul to tell our troubles to
And when it's twelve o'clock
We climb the stair
We never knock
For nobody's there
Just me and my shadow
All alone and feeling blue.

Among My Souvenirs

length: 3:05
lyricist: Edgar Leslie
composer: Lawrence Wright
There's nothing left for me of days that used to be
There's just a memory among my souvenirs

Some letters tied in blue, a photograph or two
I see a rose from you among my souvenirs

A few more tokens rest within my treasure chest
And though they do their best to give me consolation

I count them all apart and as the teardrops start
I find a broken heart among my souvenirs

I count them all apart and as the teardrops start
I find a broken heart among my souvenirs

I Gotta Right to Sing the Blues

length: 2:52
composer: Harold Arlen
lyricist: Ted Koehler
I got a right to sing the blues
I got a right to feel low down
I got a right to hang around
Down around the river

A certain man in this old town
Keeps draggin' my poor heart around
All I see for me
Is misery

I got a right to sing the blues
I got a right to moan and sigh
I got a right to sit and cry
Down around the river

I know the deep blue sea
Will soon be callin' me
It must be love
Say what you choose
I got a right to sing the blues

I Get the Blues When It Rains

length: 3:13
lyricist: Harry Stoddard, Marcy Klauber
composer: Marcy Klauber, Harry Stoddard

It rained when I found you, it rained when I lost you
That's why I'm so blue when it rains

It was raining dear, when I met you
You smiled, the sun shone through
Then it rained again and I lost you
Just why, I never knew

I get the blues when it rains
The blues I can't lose when it rains
Each little droplet falls on my window pane
Always reminds me of the tears I've shed in vain

I sit and wait for the sun
To smile down on me once again
It rained when I found you, it rained when I lost you
That's why I'm so blue when it rains

Mean to Me

length: 3:58
composer: Fred E. Ahlert, Roy Turk
lyricist: Roy Turk
You're mean to me
Why must you be mean to me?
Gee, honey, it seems to me
You love to see me cryin'

I don't know why
I stay home each night
When you say you phone
You don't and I'm left alone.

Sing the blues and sighin'
You treat me coldly each day in the year
You always scold me
Whenever somebody is near, dear

I must be great fun to be mean to me
You shouldn't, for can't you see
What you mean to me

How About Me

length: 3:42
composer: Irving Berlin
lyricist: Irving Berlin

Words and Music by:
Irving Berlin

To long I held you close to my heart,
To much i loved you right from the start,
To soon you vanished out of my dreams.
To late to start all over it seems.
It’s over, all over.
And soon somebody else
Will tell the world about you,
But how about me.
Its over all over
And soon somebody else
Will make a fuss about you
But how about me.
You’ll find somebody new,
But what am I to do?
I’ll still remember you,
When you have forgotten.
And maybe a baby
Will climb upon your knee
And put its arms about you,
But how about me.
You’ll find somebody new,
But what am I to do?
I’ll still remember you,
When you have forgotten.
And maybe a baby
Will climb upon your knee
And put its arms about you
But how about me?


Just a Memory

length: 2:29
writer: Lew Brown, Ray Henderson, Buddy DeSylva
You are gone, and all is gone, and through each weary day
Only tender memories remain.
Memories are sunbeams through a sky of cloudy grey,
Memories are roses in the rain!

Days I knew with you are just memory,
Just a memory, that is all that's left to me!
Happiness, I guess, is just a memory,
Just a memory from a love that used to be.

Will we share the night, the moon, the stars above again?
Will I live to hope, to sing, to smile, to laugh again, love again?
In my dreams, it seems your face is near to me,
And it's dear to me, oh it's just a memory!

Will we share the night, the moon, the stars above again?
Will I live to hope, to sing, to smile, to laugh again, love again?
In my dreams, it seems your face is near to me,
And it's dear to me, oh it's just a memory!

Blue Prelude

length: 2:47
composer: Joe Bishop
lyricist: Gordon Jenkins
Let me sigh, let me cry when I'm blue
Let me go way from this lonesome town
Won't be long til my song will be through
'Cause I know I'm on my last go round
All the love I could steal, beg or borrow
Wouldn't heal all this pain in my soul

What is love but a prelude to sorrow
With a heartbreak ahead for your goal
Here I go
Now you know why I'm leaving
Got the blues
What can I lose
Good bye

Happy New Year

length: 3:13
The snow makes teardrops on my window
The wind blows memories through my hall
And I am all alone on New Year's eve
The time I need you most of all

The gay ones don their silly paper hats
And blow their stupid little horns
At midnight they will all be singing Auld Lang Syne
But the sad ones sit alone before the fire and sip a glass of lonely wine

I wish you a Happy New Year darling
May your new love be bright and fair
I hope he'll do those special things for you
That I would do if I were there.

I love the days we spent together
Before the old year lost it's shine
I'll keep that memory locked within my heart
That Happy New Year you were mine
