Tracklist

It Might as Well Be Spring

length: 2:32
conductor: Irwin Kostal
vocal: Julie Andrews

I'm as restless as a willow in a windstorm
I'm as jumpy as a puppet on a string
I'd say that I had spring fever
But I know it isn't spring

I am starry-eyed and vaguely discontented
Like a nightingale without a song to sing
Oh, why should I have Spring fever
When it isn't even spring?

I keep wishing I were somewhere else
Walking down a strange new street
Hearing words that I have never heard
From a girl I've yet to meet

I'm as busy as a spider spinning daydreams
I'm as giddy as a baby on a swing
I haven't seen a crocus or a rosebud or a robin on the wing
But I feel so gay in a melancholy way
That it might as well be spring

It might as well be spring

Falling in Love With Love

length: 2:24
conductor: Irwin Kostal
vocal: Julie Andrews
Falling in love with love is falling for make-believe
Falling in love with love is playing the fool
Caring too much is such a juvenile fancy
Learning to trust is just for children in school

I fell in love with love one night when the moon was full
I was unwise with eyes unable to see
I fell in love with love, with love everlasting
But love fell out with me

Oh, I fell in love with love one night when the moon was full
I was unwise with eyes unable to see
I fell in love with love, with love everlasting
But love fell out with me

We’ll Gather Lilacs in the Spring

length: 2:54
conductor: Irwin Kostal
vocal: Julie Andrews
composer: Ivor Novello
lyricist: Ivor Novello
Although you're far away
And life is sad and grey
I have a scheme, a dream to try
I'm thinking, dear, of you
And all I mean to do
When we're together, you and I

We'll gather lilacs in the spring again
And walk together down a shady lane
Until our hearts have learned to sing again
When you come home once more

And in the evening by the firelight's glow
You'll hold me close and never let me go
Your eyes will tell me all I want to know
When you come home once more

Your eyes will tell me all I want to know
When you come home once more

He Loves and She Loves

length: 2:46
conductor: Irwin Kostal
vocal: Julie Andrews
He loves and she loves
And they love so why can't
You love and I love, too
Birds love and bees love
And whispering trees love
And that's what we both should do

I always knew someday
You'd come along
We'll make a twosome
That just can't go wrong, darling
He loves and she loves
And they love so won't you
Love me as I love you

I always knew someday
You'd come along
We'll make a twosome
That just can't go wrong, darling
He loves and she loves
And they love so won't you
Love me as I love you

I’m Old-Fashioned

length: 2:34
conductor: Irwin Kostal
vocal: Julie Andrews
I am not such a clever one about the latest fads
I admit I was never one adored by local lads
Not that I ever tried to be a saint
Iâ??m the type that they classify as quaint

Iâ??m old fashioned, I love the moonlight
I love the old fashioned things
The sound of rain upon a window pane
The starry song that April sings
This years fancies are passing fancies
But sighing sighs, holding hands
These my heart understands

Iâ??m old fashioned but I donâ??t mind it
Thatâ??s how I want to be
As long as you agree
To stay old fashioned with me.

Iâ??m old fashioned but I donâ??t mind it
Thatâ??s how I want to be
As long as you agree
To stay old fashioned with me.

You’re a Builder-Upper

length: 2:27
conductor: Irwin Kostal
vocal: Julie Andrews
When you want to
You are able to make me feel that I'm Clark Gable
Then next minute you make me feel
I'm something from the zoo
First you warm up, then you're distant
Never knew a girl so inconsistent
I'm a big-shot at half past one
A so-and-so by two
Heaven forgive you for your sins
Keeping me on meaner than him

You're a builder-upper, a breaker-downer
A holder-outer, and I'm a giver-inner
Sad but true, I'm a sapper or two
Taking it from a big rover like you
Don't know where I'm atter
I'm just a this-er, then I'm a that-er
A taker on the chin-er
My, my, my, what a weakie am I
To love you as I do

Just when I'm ready to sob
You hand me a throb
And everything is hunky-dory
And that's my story
Open your arms and I'm a stooge for your charms
You're a builder-upper, a breaker-downer
A holder-outer and I'm a giver-inner
Sad but true, I love it I do
Being broken by a builder-upper like you

Sad but true, I love it I do
Being broken by a builder-upper like you

Little Old Lady

length: 2:25
conductor: Irwin Kostal
vocal: Julie Andrews
Little old lady passing by,
Catching everyone's eye,
You have such a charming manner,
Sweet and shy.
Little old bonnet set in place,
And a Smile on your face,
You're a perfect picture in your
Lavender and lace.
Little bit of business here,
Little bit of business there,
Bet that you've been window shopping
All around the square.
Little old lady, time for tea
Here's a kiss, two or three,
You're just like that little old lady,
I hold dear to me.

My Ship

length: 2:10
conductor: Irwin Kostal
vocal: Julie Andrews
My ship has sails that are made of silk,
The decks are trimmed with gold,
And of jam and spice there's a paradise in the hold.

My ship's aglow with a million pearls
And rubies fill each bin,
The sun sits high in a sapphire sky when my ship comes in.

I can wait the years
Till it appears
One fine day one spring,
But the pearls and such
They won't mean much if there's missing just one thing.

I do not care if that day arrives
That dream need never be,
If the ship I sing doesn't also bring
My own true love to me,
If the ship I sing doesn't also bring my own true love to me.

Cheek to Cheek

length: 2:02
conductor: Irwin Kostal
vocal: Julie Andrews
composer: Irving Berlin
lyricist: Irving Berlin
Heaven, I'm in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek
Heaven, I'm in heaven
And the cares that hung around me through the week
Seem to vanish like a gambler's lucky streak
When we're out together dancing (swinging) cheek to cheek
Oh I love to climb a mountain
And reach the highest peak
But it doesn't thrill (boot) me half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek
Oh I love to go out fishing
In a river or a creek
But I don't enjoy it half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek
(Come on and) Dance with me
I want my arm(s) about you
That (Those) charm(s) about you
Will carry me through...
(Right up) To heaven, I'm in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we're out together dancing, out together dancing (swinging)
Out together dancing cheek to cheek

Come to Me, Bend to Me

length: 2:05
conductor: Irwin Kostal
vocal: Julie Andrews
Come to me, bend to me
Kiss me good day
Darlin' my darlin'
'Tis all I can say
Just come to me, bend to me
Kiss me good day
Give me your lips
And don't take them away

Come, dearie, near me
So ye can hear me
I've got to whisper this softly
For though I'm burnin'
To shout my yearnin'
The words come tip-toein' off me, oh

Come to me, bend to me
Kiss me good day
Darlin' my darlin'
'Tis all I can say
Just come to me, bend to me
Kiss me good day
Give me your lips
And don't take them away

So in Love

length: 2:38
conductor: Irwin Kostal
vocal: Julie Andrews
Strange dear, but true, dear
When I'm close to you, dear
The stars fill the sky
So in love with you am I

Even without you
My arms fold about you
You know, darling, why
So in love with you am I

In love with the night mysterious
The night when you first were there
In love with my joy delirious
When I knew that you could care

So taunt me and hurt me
Deceive me, desert me
I'm yours 'til I die
So in love
So in love
So in love with you, my love, am I

Matelot

length: 3:46
conductor: Irwin Kostal
vocal: Julie Andrews
Charles Louis Dominique Pierre Buchard
True to the breed that bore him
Answered the call that held him thrall
His father's heart before him
Charles Louis Dominique sailed away
Further than love could find him
Yet through the night he heard a light
And gentle voice behind him say

Matelot, Matelot
Where you go my thoughts go with you
Matelot, Matelot
When you go down to the sea

As you gaze from afar
On the evening star
Wherever you may roam
You will remember the light
Through the winter night
That guides you safely home
Though you find womankind to be frail
One love cannot fail, my son
Till our days are done

Matelot, Matelot
Where you go my thoughts go with you
Matelot, Matelot
When you go down to the sea

Charles Louis Dominique Pierre Buchard
Journeyed the wide world over
Lips that he kissed could not resist
This loving roving rover
Charles Louis Dominique, right or wrong
Ever pursued a new love
Till in his brain there beat a strain
He knew to be his true love song

Matelot, Matelot
Where you go my heart goes with you
Matelot, Matelot
When you go down to the sea

For a year and a day
You may sail away
And have no thought of me
Yet through the wind and the spray
You will hear me say
No love was ever free
You will sigh when horizons are clear
Something that is dear to me
Cannot let me be

Matelot, Matelot
Where you go my heart goes with you
Matelot, Matelot
When you go down to the sea
