Tracklist

Lucky Day

composer: Ray Henderson, Buddy DeSylva
lyricist: Lew Brown

I'm sitting on top of this great big wonderful world
'Cause this is my lucky day, lucky day

Oh boy, I'm lucky
I'll say I'm lucky
This is my lucky day

I'm all in clover
I'm glad all over
I want to shout "hooray"

I find a horseshoe
Couldn't go wrong
And then of course
You happened along

Oh boy, I'm lucky
I'll say I'm lucky
This is my lucky day

Oh boy, I'm lucky
I'll say I'm lucky
This is my lucky day

I Happen to Like New York

composer: Cole Porter
lyricist: Cole Porter
I happen to like New York, I happen to love this town
I like the city air, I like to drink of it
The more I see New York, the more I think of it
I like the sight and the sound and even the stink of it
I happen to like New York

I like to go to Battery Park and watch the liners booming in
I often ask myself why should it be
That they come so far across the sea?
I suppose it's because they all agree with me
They happen to like New York

Last Sunday afternoon, I took a trip to Hackensack
But after I gave Hackensack the once over
I took the next train back
I happen to like New York

And oh, the Easter Show at the Music Hall
A perfect delight
And oh, pastrami on rye at the Carnegie Deli
There's joy in each pie

And Madison Square for a Friday night fight
Or a walk along Broadway to guest at the lights
And at Carnegie Hall where the atmosphere's right
Life at the lights, at the night

I happen to like New York, I happen to love this burg
And when I have to give the world my last farewell
And the undertaker comes to ring my funeral bell
I don't wanna go to heaven, don't wanna go to [unverified]
I happen to like New York, I happen to like New York
I happen to like New York

Comes Once in a Lifetime

composer: Jule Styne
lyricist: Betty Comden, Adolph Green
Every day, just go along dawn till sundown
Here's a rundown
Every day that comes, comes once in a lifetime

Take each day and gather the rosebuds in it
Fill each minute
Every day that comes, comes once in a lifetime

Think of now, tomorrow is waiting in the wings
Who knows what it brings
While the future waits, the present swings

Day to day, in Brooklyn or China 'cross the bay
Only once comes this particular sky
Only once these precious hours go by
Only once in a lifetime the day comes by
So live, live, live, live today

Think of now, tomorrow is waiting in the wings
Who knows what it brings
While the future waits, the present swings

From day to day, in Brooklyn or China 'cross the bay
Only once comes this particular sky
Only once these precious hours go by
Only once in a lifetime a day comes by
So live, live, live, come on and live today

Judy at the Palace (Medley):

Part 1 - Shine on Harvest Moon

I played the state
The capital
And people said
Don't stop
Until you play the Palace
You haven't played the top
For years I had it preached to me
And drummed into my head
Until you play the Palace
You might as well be dead
A team of hoofers was the headline
At the Majestic, down in Dallas
But they canceled the day
Their agent called to say
You can open the bill at the palace
So, it became the Hall of Fame
The Mecca of the trade
When you had played the Palace
You knew that you were made
So, I hope you understand my wondrous thrill
Cause Vaudevilles back as the Palace
And I'm on the bill

Shine on
Shine on
Harvest moon
Up in the sky
I ain't had no lovin
Since January
Febuary
June or July

Part 2 - Some of These Days

Some of these days
Your gonna miss me honey
Some of these days
Your gonna feel so lonely
You miss my hugging
You miss my kissing
You'll miss me honey
When I'm far away

Part 3 - My Man

Oh my man
I love him so
He'll never know
All my life is just despaire
But i dont care
When he takes me in his arms
The world is bright alright

Part 4 - I Don't Care

I dont care
I dont care
If people frown
On me
I'm happy go lucky
They say that I'm plucky
Contented and carefree
I dont care
I dont care
If he's a clerk or just a millionare
If im not successful
It won't be degressful
Cause I dont care

And all around me
I hear voices that I can't ignore
The voices of the stars
Who played the Palace long before
The stars who entertained you
Until the rafters rang
You dont need there names
For the whole world acclaims them
For the wonderful songs they sang
Theres Eddie Canter
Georgie Jessle
Louie Holts
Johnson and olson
Cowerson boys
Howerdson boys
Aand that singing fool Al Jolson
And so with deep humility
I stand in front of you
I'm proud to play the palace
It's like a dream come true
Which is why I'd like to shout it up and down
Just to tell Broadway
That the two a day is back in town

Shine on Harvest Moon

composer: Nora Bayes, Jack Norworth
lyricist: Jack Norworth

Some of These Days

composer: Shelton Brooks
lyricist: Shelton Brooks

My Man

I Don't Care

lyricist: Jean Lenox
composer: Harry O. Sutton
They say I'm crazy
Got no sense
But I don't care
They may or may not mean offense
But I don't care
You see, I'm sort of independent
I am my own superintendent
And my star is on the ascendant
That's why I don't care

I don't care, I don't care
What they may think of me
I'm happy-go-lucky, they say that I'm plucky
Contented and carefree
I don't care I don't care
If I do get a mean and stony stare
If I'm not successful
It won't be distressful
Cause I don't care

A girl should know her etiquette
Alas, alack
Propriety demands we walk a narrow track
When fellas used to blink at me
I'd freeze 'em and they'd shrink at me
But now when fellas wink at me
I wink at them right back!

I don't care I don't care
If people frown on me
Perhaps it's the lone way
But I go my own way
That's my philosophy
I don't care I don't care
If he's clerk or just a millionaire
There's no doubt about it,
I'll sing and I'll shout it
Cause I don't care

Oh, I don't care, I don't care
When it comes to happiness,
I want my share
Don't try to rearrange me
There's nothing can change me
'cause I don't care!

Happiness Is a Thing Called Joe

composer: Harold Arlen
lyricist: Yip Harburg
It seems like happiness is just a thing called Joe
He's got a smile that makes the lilac wanta grow
He's got a way that makes the angels heave a sigh
When they know little Joe's passing by

Sometimes the cabin's gloomy and the table's bare
Then he'll kiss me and it's Christmas everywhere
Troubles fly away and life is easy go
Does he love me good, that's all I need to know

Seems like happiness, is just a thing called Joe

Little Joe, little Joe, little Joe

Sweet Danger

There is danger in my loving you
Danger in your letting me,
Danger in your not instantly
Abandoning and forgetting me

Sweet danger, sweet danger
One we know we can share
Unbounded beauty, if we dare

We were destined for divided paths
Fated to be far apart
And there’s danger in defying fate
With two foolish hearts

Sweet danger, sweet danger
And although we can share,
Come open with your kiss
Our joy to secretness
And though there’s danger waiting there,
We’ll be in love and we won’t care

You'll Never Walk Alone

lyricist: Oscar Hammerstein II
composer: Richard Rodgers
When you walk through a storm
"Keep your chin up high" or "Hold your head up high"
And don't be afraid of the dark.
At the end of a storm
Is a golden sky
And the sweet, silver song of a lark.
Walk on, through the wind,
Walk on, through the rain,
Though your dreams be tossed and blown.
Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart,
And you'll never walk alone,
You'll never walk alone.

Do I Love You?

After that sweet Summer afternoon
When for the first time I saw you appear,
Dreaming of you I composed a tune,
So will you listen to it, dear?

Do I love you, do I?
Doesn't one and one make two?
Do I love you, do I?
Does July need a sky of blue?
Would I miss you, would I?
If you ever should go away?
If the sun should desert the day,
What would life be?
Will I leave you, never?
Could the ocean leave the shore?
Will I worship you for ever?
Isn't heaven forever more?

Do I love you, do I?
Oh, my dear, it's so easy to see,
Don't you know I do?
Don't I show you I do,
Just as you love me?

Do I love you, do I?
Doesn't one and one make two?
Do I love you, do I?
Does July need a sky of blue?
Would I miss you, would I?
If you ever should go away?
If the sun should desert the day,
What would life be?
Will I leave you, never?
Could the ocean leave the shore?
Will I worship you for ever?
Isn't heaven forever more?

Do I love you, do I?
Oh, my dear, it's so easy to see,
Don't you know I do?
Don't I show you I do,
Just as you love me?

More Than You Know

composer: Vincent Youmans
lyricist: Billy Rose, Edward Eliscu
Whether you are here or yonder,
Whether you are false or true
Whether you remain or wander,
I'm growing fonder of you
Even though your friends forsake you,
Even though you don't succeed
Wouldn't I be glad to take you,
Give you the break you need

More than you know, more than you know
Girl of my heart, I love you so
Lately I find you're on my mind
More than you know

Whether you're right, whether you're wrong
Girl of my heart, I'll string along
You need me so
Much more than you'll ever know (ever know)
Loving you the way that I do

There's nothing I can do about it
Loving may be all you can give
But baby I can't live without it
Oh, how I'd cry, oh, how I'd cry
If you got tired and said "Good-bye"

More than I'd show
More than you'd ever know

It's a Great Day for the Irish

composer: Roger Edens
lyricist: Roger Edens
It's a great day for the Irish, it's a great day for fair!
The sidewalks of New York are thick with blarney
For shure you'd think New York was Old Kilarney!
It's a great day for the Shamrock, for the flags in full array
We're feeling so inspirish, shure because for all the Irish
It's a great, great day!

It's a great day for the Irish, it's a great day for fair!
Begosh, there's not a cop to stop a raiding
Begorra all the cops are out parading!
It's a great day for the Shamrock, for the flags in full aray
And as we go a swinging, ev'ry Irish heart is singing
It's a great, great day!
