Tracklist

On a Clear Day

length: 3:38
lyricist: Alan Jay Lerner
composer: Burton Lane

On a clear day, rise and look around you
And you'll see who you are
On a clear day how it will astound you
That the glow of your being outshines every star

You'll feel part of every mountain, sea, and shore
You can hear from far and near a world you've never heard before

And on a clear day, on that clear day
You can see forever and ever more

You can hear from far and near a world you've never heard before

And on that clear day, on that clear day
You can see forever and ever and ever and ever and ever and evermore!

Here I'll Stay

length: 4:24
composer: Kurt Weill
lyricist: Alan Jay Lerner
There's a far place, I'm told,
Where I'll find a field of gold,
But here I'll stay with you;

And they say there's an isle deep with clover,
Where your heart wears a snile all day through.

But I know well they're wrong,
And I know where I belong,
And here I'll stay with you.

For that land is a sandy illusion,
It's the theme of a dream gone astray;
And the world others woo
I can find loving you,
And so here I'll stay.

For that land is a sandy illusion,
It's the theme of a dream gone astray;
And the world others woo
I can find loving you,
And so here I guess I'll stay.

Take Care of This House

length: 3:58
Here in this shell of a house,
This house that is struggling to be.
Falling through the hall,
Coming straight through the wall,
Is hope staring down at me,
But there's nothing you can see
Sadness will flow down a cheek
Courage stand out like a tree
Joy, joy is as bright
As a comet in flight.
But hope isn't easy to see.

Take care of this house
Keep it from harm
If bandits break in sound the alarm
Care for this house
Shine it by hand
And keep it so clean
The glow can be seen all over the land.

Be careful at night,
Check all the doors,
If someone makes off with a dream
The dream will be yours.
Take care of this house
Be always on call
For this house is the home of us all.

Be careful at night
Check all the doors
If someone makes off with a dream
The dream will be yours.
Take care of this house
Be always on call,
For this house its the home of us all.

What Did I Have That I Don't Have

composer: Burton Lane
lyricist: Alan Jay Lerner
So tell me babe, what's new?
And how's the scene with you?
Gee, it's good to see you, babe!

Yeah, I missed you so,
How you'll never know!
Gee, it's good to see you, babe!

You walked in,
Lights went on
All over my face!
You lit up the place,
And you've been gone
Just too long now!

So tell me babe, what's new?
You're glad to see me too!
Hey, my world is spinning!
Now I know I'm winning!
You stay home now,
Don't ever roam now!
And I'll say, babe,
"It's good to see you!".

Gee, it's good to see you, babe!

Gee, it's good to see you, babe!

You walked in,
Lights went on
All over my face!
You lit up the place,
And you've been gone
Just too long now!

So tell me babe, what's new?
You're glad to see me too!
Hey, my world is spinning!
Now I know I'm winning!
You stay home now,
Don't ever roam now!
And I'll say, babe,
"It's good to see you!".

How to handle a woman,
There`s a way said a wise old man,
A way know by every woman,
Since the whole rigmarole began!

Do I flatter her, I begged him answer,
Do I threaten or cajole or plea,
Do I brood or play the gay romancer?
Said he, smiling, "No, indeed!"

"How to handle a woman,
Mark me well, I will tell you sir!
The way to handle a woman,
Is to love her, simply love her,
Merely love her, love her,
Love her!"
