When I Take My Sugar To Tea


I'm just a little Jackie Horner
Since I met my sugar cane
That gang of mine has been revealin'
That they're feelin' sore
I left the lamp light on the corner
For the moon in lover's lane
I'm doing things I never did before

When I take my sugar to tea
All the boys are jealous of me
'Cause I never take her where the gang goes
When I take my sugar to tea

I'm a rowdy-dowdy--that's me
She's a high-hat baby--that's she
So I never take her where the gang goes
When I take my sugar to tea

Ev'ry Sunday afternoon
We forget about our cares
Rubbing elbows at the Ritz
With those millionaires

When I take my sugar to tea
I'm as Ritzy as can be
'Cause I never take her where the gang goes
When I take my sugar to tea

Moon Love

Will this be moon love, nothing but moon love,
Will you be gone when the dawn comes stealing through?
Are these just moon dreams, grand while the moon beams?
But when the moon fades away, will my dreams come true?
Much as I love you, don't let me love you.

If I must pay for your kiss with lonely tears, say it's not moon love.
Tell me it's true, say you'll be mine when the moon disappears.

Tell Me About Yourself

When I Grow Too Old To Dream

We have been gay, going our way
Life has been beautiful, we have been young
After you've gone, life will go on
Like an old song we have sung

When I grow too old to dream
I'll have you to remember
When I grow too old to dream
Your love will live in my heart
So, kiss me my sweet
And so let us part

And when I grow too old to dream
That kiss will live in my heart
And when I grow too old to dream
That kiss will live in my heart

So, kiss me my sweet
And so let us part
And when I grow too old to dream
That kiss will live in my heart

Let's Fall In Love

Let's fall in love
Why shouldn't we fall in love?
Our hearts are made of it
Let's take a chance
Why be afraid of it?
Let's close our eyes
And make our own paradise
Little we know of it
Still we can try
To make a go of it
We might have been meant for each other
To be or not to be, let our hearts discover
Let's fall in love
Why shouldn't we fall in love?
Now is the time for it
While we are young
Let's fall in love
We might have been meant for each other
To be or not to be, let our hearts discover
Let's fall in love
Why shouldn't we fall in love?
Now is the time for it
While we are young
Let's fall in love

Ramblin' Rose

Ramblin' rose, ramblin' rose
Why you ramble, no one knows
Wild and wind-blown, that's how you've grown
Who can cling to a ramblin' rose?

Ramble on, ramble on
When your ramblin' days are gone
Who will love you with a love true
When your ramblin' days are through?

Ramblin' rose, ramblin' rose
Why I want you, heaven knows
Though I love you with a love true
Who can cling to a ramblin' rose?

Ramblin' rose, ramblin' rose
Why I want you, heaven knows
Though I love you with a love true
Who can cling to a ramblin' rose?

No Other Heart

Only Yesterday

Only yesterday I loved you
And you said that you loved me
Yesterday, I thought we both knew
That our love would always be

We planned our lives together, dear
Setting our hopes so high
You were my future, bright and clear
A rainbow that filled my sky

And only yesterday I loved you
But today it's plain to see
When you said you loved forever
No, you didn't mean just me

And only yesterday I loved you
But today it's plain to see
When you said you loved forever
No, you didn't mean just me

No, you didn't mean just me

Those Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days Of Summer

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Dust off the sun and moon and sing a song of cheer

Just fill your basket full of sandwiches and weenies
Then lock the house up, now you're set
And on the beach you'll see the girls in their bikinis
As cute as ever but they never get 'em wet

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
You'll wish that summer could always be here

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Dust off the sun and moon and sing a song of cheer

Don't hafta tell a girl and fella about a drive-in
Or some romantic moon it seems
Right from the moment that those lovers start arrivin'
You'll see more kissin' in the cars than on the screen

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
You'll wish that summer could always be here

You'll wish that summer could always be here
You'll wish that summer could always be here

Lights Out

Lights out, sweetheart,
One more perfect day is through.

Lights out, sweetheart,
One more perfect dream come true.

We've reached the hour of parting,
So kiss me tenderly.

Lights out, sweetheart,
Close your eyes and dream of me.

A Blossom Fell

A blossom fell from off a tree
It settled softly on the lips you turned to me
The Gypsies say, and I know why
"A falling blossom only touches lips that lie."

A blossom fell and very soon
I saw you kissing someone new beneath the moon
I thought you loved me; you said you loved me
We planned together to dream forever
The dream has ended, for true love died
The night a blossom fell and touched two lips that lied

A blossom fell and very soon
I saw you kissing someone new beneath the moon
I thought you loved me; you said you loved me
We planned together to dream forever
The dream has ended, for true love died
The night a blossom fell and touched two lips that lied

Never Let Me Go

Never let me go
Love me much too much
If you let me go
Life will lose its touch
What would I be without you?
There's no place for me without you

Never let me go
I'd be so lost if you went away
There'd be a thousand hours in a day without you
I know

Because of one caress my world was overturned
at the very start
All my bridges burned by my flaming heart
You'd never leave me would you?
You couldn't hurt me could you?

Never let me go
Never let me go

You're Mine, You

Just You, Just Me

Just you, just me
Let's find a cozy spot
To cuddle and coo

Just us, just we
I've missed an awful lot
My trouble is you

Oh, gee!
What are your charms for?
What are my arms for?
Use your imagination!
Just you, just me
I'll tie a lover's knot
'Round wonderful you!

The Christmas Song

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yule-tide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos

Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
Help to make the season bright
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight

They know that Santa's on his way
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
And every mother's child is gonna spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly

And so I'm offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it's been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you

And so I'm offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it's been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you

An Affair To Remember

Our love affair is a wondrous thing
That we'll rejoice in remembering
Our love was born with our first embrace
And a page was torn out of time and space
Our love affair, may it always be
A flame to burn through eternity
So, take my hand with a fervent prayer
That we may live and we may share
A love affair to remember

Our love affair is a wondrous thing
That we'll rejoice in remembering
Our love was born with our first embrace
And a page was torn out of time and space
Our love affair, may it always be
A flame to burn through eternity
So, take my hand with a fervent prayer
That we may live and we may share

Funny (Not Much)

Funny, how I've stopped loving you
I can pass you on the street and my heart don`t skip a beat
Not much, so much my eyes want to cry
Funny, how I've stopped loving you
I can listen to your name and it doesn't start a flame
Not much, so much my heart wants to die
Now that you`re standing here, darling, I don`t shed a tear
This is just the rain in my eyes
And if I have proved to you everything I say is true
Please help me believe my own lies
Funny, how I've stopped loving you
And it`s funny I don`t miss all the heaven in your kiss
Your touch, no I don`t love you, not much

Funny, how I've stopped loving you
And it`s funny I don`t miss all the heaven in your kiss
Your touch, no I don`t love you, not much
No I don`t love you, not much

There Goes My Heart

There goes my heart, there goes the one I love
There goes the girl I wasn't worthy of
There goes my happiness, it couldn't be
There goes somebody else in place of me

Goodbye romance, it couldn't last somehow
I had my chance but it's all over now
I never thought that she could pass me by
There goes my heart and here am I

I never thought that she could pass me by
There goes my heart and here am I

The Ruby And The Pearl

Can love be as warm as the ruby
Can love be as pure as the pearl
Just look in the heart of my love for you
You'll find the ruby and the pearl

My love will endure as the diamond
And shine with the shimmer of gold
It glows as the bright star above for you
A thing of beauty to behold

Come close and cling to my kiss
Stay close and share the passion of this
Yes love is as warm as the ruby
And love is as pure as the pearl

[Chorus:]
Just look in the heart of my love for you
You'll find the ruby and the pearl

Yes love is as warm as the ruby,
And love is as pure as the pearl

[Chorus]

Stardust

composer: Hoagy Carmichael
lyricist: Mitchell Parish
And now the purple dusk of twilight time
Steals across the meadows of my heart
High up in the sky the little stars climb
Always reminding me that we're apart
You wander down the lane and far away
Leaving me a song that will not die
Love is now the stardust of yesterday
The music of the years gone by.

Sometimes I wonder, how I spend
The lonely nights
Dreaming of a song
The melody
Haunts my reverie
And I am once again with you
When our love was new
And each kiss an inspiration
But that was long ago
And now my consolation is in the stardust of a song

Besides the garden wall, when stars are bright
You are in my arms
The nightingale
Tells his fairytale
Of paradise, where roses grew
Though I dream in vain
In my heart it will remain
My stardust melody
The memory of love's refrain.

Ain't Misbehavin'

No one to talk with
All by myself
No one to walk with
But I'm happy on the shelf
Ain't misbehavin'
I'm savin' my love for you

I know for certain
The one I love
I'm through with flirtin'
It's just you I'm thinkin' of
Ain't misbehavin'
I'm savin' my love for you

Like Jack Horner
In the corner
Don't go nowhere
What do I care?
Your kisses are worth waitin' for
Believe me

I don't stay out late
Don't care to go
I'm home about eight
Just me and my radio
Ain't misbehavin'
I'm savin' my love for you

Straighten Up And Fly Right

The buzzard took the monkey for a ride in the air
The monkey thought that ev'rything was on the square
The buzzard tried to throw the monkey off his back
The monkey grabbed his neck and said, "Now, listen, Jack
Straighten up and fly right, straighten up and fly right
Straighten up and fly right, cool down papa, don't you blow your top
Ain't no use in divin'. What's the use of jivin'?
Straighten up and fly right, cool down papa, don't you blow your top"
The buzzard told the monkey, "You're choking me
Release your hold and I'll set you free"
The monkey looked the buzzard right dead in the eye and said
"Your story's touching, but is sounds like a lie"
Straighten up and fly right, straighten up and stay right
Straighten up and fly right, cool down papa, don't you blow your top

Who's Sorry Now?

Who's Sorry Now?
Who's Sorry Now?
Who's heart is aching for breaking each vow?
Who's sad and blue?
Who's crying too?
Just like I cried over you.
Right to the end,
Just like a friend,
I tried to warn you somehow.
You had your way,
Now you must pay;


When You're Sming

Sweet Lorraine

Ev'rything is set, skies are blue,
Can't believe it yet, but it's true,
I'll give you just one guess,
My sweet Lorraine said "Yes;"
Waiting for the time, soon to be,
When the bells will chime merrily,

(I'm so happy,)When it's raining I don't miss the sun,
For it's in my sweeties smile,
Just think that I'm the lucky one
Who will lend her down the aisle;
Each night I pray
That nobody steals her heart away,
Just can't wait until that happy day,
When I mary sweet Lorraine.

Ev'rything is set, skies are blue,
Can't believe it yet, but it's true,
I'll give you just one guess,
My sweet Lorraine said "Yes;"
Waiting for the time, soon to be,
When the bells will chime merrily,

(I'm so happy,)When it's raining I don't miss the sun,
For it's in my sweeties smile,
Just think that I'm the lucky one
Who will lend her down the aisle;
Each night I pray
That nobody steals her heart away,
Just can't wait until that happy day,
When I marry sweet Lorraine.

When My Sugar Walks Down The Street

When my sugar walks down the street
All the little birdies go tweet, tweet, tweet.
And in the evening when the sun goes down
It's never dark when she's around

She's so affectionate and I'll say this
That when she kisses me I sure stay kissed
When my sugar walks down the street
The little birdies go tweet tweet tweet.

At Last

At last my love has come along
My lonely days are over and life is like a song
At Last the skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped in clover the night I looked at you
I found a dream that I can speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to press my cheek to
A thrill I've never known
You smiled and then the spell was cast
And here we are in heaven
For you are mine at last

You smiled and then the spell was cast
And here we are in heaven
For you are mine at last

You Stepped Out Of A Dream

You stepped out of a dream
You are too wonderful to be what you seem!
Could there be eyes like yours, could there be lips like yours
Could there be smiles like yours, honest and truly?
You stepped out of a cloud
I want to take you away, away from the crowd
And have you all to myself, alone and apart out of a dream, safe in my heart

You stepped out of a dream
You are too wonderful to be what you seem!
Could there be eyes like yours, could there be lips like yours
Could there be smiles like yours, honest and truly?
You stepped out of a cloud
I want to take you away, away from the crowd
And have you all to myself, alone and apart out of a dream, safe in my heart

I Just Found Out About Love

I just found out about love and I like it, I like it
I like what love has been doing to me
I hold you close in my arms and I like it, I like it
Oh, what a wonderful future I see

It's a one time only,
It's a lifetime deal
And I know it's real,
I can tell by the way that I feel

Right now I'm livin' it up and I like it, I like it
Hey you give me a clue
What's love doing to you
Looks like you could be liking it too

I like it
Oh, what a wonderful future I see

It's a one time only,
It's a lifetime deal
And I know it's real,
I can tell by the way that I feel

Right now I'm livin' it up and I like it, I like it
Hey you give me a clue
What's love doing to you
Looks like you could be liking it too

Hey you give me a clue
What's love doing to you
Looks like you could be liking it too.

Paradise

And then she holds my hand, mm
And then I understand. mm
Her eyes afire with one desire
Then a heavenly kiss
Could I resist?
And then she dims the light, mm
And then she holds me tight. mm
Her kiss, each fond caress
They lead the way to happiness
She takes me to paradise

And then he holds my hand, mm
And then I understand. mm
His eyes afire with one desire
Then a heavenly kiss
Could I resist?
And then he dims the light, mm
And then he holds me tight. mm
Her kiss, each fond caress
They lead the way to happiness
She takes me to paradise

What Can I Say After I Say I'm Sorry?

What can I say dear after I say I'm sorry,
What can I do to prove it to you that I'm sorry,
I didn't mean to ever be mean to you-oo
If I didn't care I wouldn't feel like I do,
I was all wrong,
But right or wrong I don't blame you
Why should I take somebody like you and shame you
I know that I made you cry and I'm so sorry dear
So what can I say dear after I say I'm sorry,

Tell me Baby what can I say dear after I say I'm sorry so-so sorry
What can I do to prove it to you I'm sorry
Oh I didn't mean to ever be mean to you
If I didn't care I wouldn't feel -oh I wouldn't feel like I do-do-do
I was all wrong, but right or wrong I don't blame you no-no-no-no
Why should I take somebody like you and shame you
I know that I made you cry and I'm so sorry dear,
Sorry I made you cry
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Sorry I made you cry

That Sunday, That Summer

If I had to choose just one day

If I had to choose just one day
To last my whole life through
It would surely be that Sunday
The day that I met you

Newborn whippoorwills were calling from the hills
Summer was a-coming in but fast
Lots of daffodils were showing off their skills
Nodding all together, I could almost hear them whisper
"Go on, kiss her, go on and kiss her"

And if I had to choose one moment
To live within my heart
It would be that tender moment
Recalling how we started
Darling, it would be when you smiled at me
That way, that Sunday, that summer

Newborn whippoorwills were calling from the hills
Summer was a-comin' in but fast
Lots of daffodils were showin' off their skills
Nodding all together, I could almost hear them whisper
"Go on, kiss her, go on and kiss her"

If I had to choose one moment
To live within my heart
It would be that tender moment
Recalling how we started
Darling, it would be when you smiled at me
That way, that Sunday, that summer

If I had to choose just one day

Don't Get Around Much Anymore

Missed the Saturday dance
Heard they crowded the floor
Couldn't bear it without you
Don't get around much anymore

Though I'd visit the club
Got as far as the door
They'd have asked me about you
Don't get around much anymore

Darling, I guess my mind's more at ease
But nevertheless why stir up memories?

Been invited on dates
Might have gone but what for?
Awf'lly diff'rent without you
Don't get around much anymore

I Remember You

Was it in Tahiti?
Were we on the Nile?
Long, long ago,
Say an hour or so
I recall that I saw your smile.

I remember you,
You`re the one who made
My dreams come true
A few kisses ago.

I remember you,
You`re the one who said
"I love you, too," I do.
Didn`t you know?

I remember, too,
A distant bell,
And stars that fell like rain
Out of the blue.

When my life is through,
And the angels ask me to recall
The thrill of them all,
Then I shall tell them
I remember you.

Answer Me

Answer me
Oh my love
Just what sin have I been guilty of
Tell me how I came to lose your love
Please answer me
My love.
You were mine yesterday
I believed that love was here to stay
Won't you tell me where I've gone astray
Please answer me
My love.
If you're happier without me
I'll try not to care
But if you still think about me
Please listen to my prayer
You must know I've been true
Won't you say that we can start anew?
In my sorrow now I turn to you
Please answer me
My love.

It's A Lonesome Old Town

It's a lonesome old town, when you're not around, I'm lonely, as I can be.
I never knew how much I missed you, but now I can plainly see.
It's a lonesome old town, when you're not around,
How I wish you'd come back to me.

I never knew how much I missed you, but now I can plainly see.
It's a lonesome old town, when you're not around,
How I wish you'd come back to me.
How I wish you'd come back to me

Once In A While

Once in a while will you try to give
One little thought to me
Though someone else may be
Nearer your heart?

Once in a while will you dream
Of the moments I shared with you
Moments before we two
Drifted apart?

In love's smoldering ember
One spark may remain
If love still can remember
That spark may burn again

I know that I'll be contented
With yesterday's memory
Knowing you think of me
Once in a while

In love's smoldering ember
One spark may remain
If love still can remember
The spark may burn again

I know that I'll be contented
With yesterday's memory
Knowing you think of me
Once in a while

Back In My Arms

Alone Too Long

Mona Lisa

Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa, men have named you
You're so like the lady with the mystic smile
Is it only 'cause you're lonely they have blamed you?
For that Mona Lisa strangeness in your smile?

Do you smile to tempt a lover, Mona Lisa?
Or is this your way to hide a broken heart?
Many dreams have been brought to your doorstep
They just lie there and they die there
Are you warm, are you real, Mona Lisa?
Or just a cold and lonely lovely work of art?

Do you smile to tempt a lover, Mona Lisa?
Or is this your way to hide a broken heart?
Many dreams have been brought to your doorstep
They just lie there and they die there
Are you warm, are you real, Mona Lisa?
Or just a cold and lonely lovely work of art?

Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa

As Far As I'm Concerned

As far as I'm concerned
That amber moon that can make the tides return
Won't match the light within my eyes
The night I learned that I'm the one you'll always love

As far as I'm concerned
The midday sun that can make the planets turn
Is cold as ice compared with how your kisses burn
And show my heart the warmth of love

Long, long ago days were empty, life was oh such a slow caravan
But now that you're here how the hours tumble by and the days disappear
They say we live and learn but what care I
If I never ever learn why robins fly away
As long as they return, and I love you and you love me
For that's as far as I'm concerned.

They say we live and learn but what care I
If I never ever learn why robins fly away
As long as they return, and I love you and you love me
For that's as far as I'm concerned

Red Sails In The Sunset

Red sails in the sunset, way out on the sea
Oh, carry my loved one home safely to me
She sailed at the dawning, all day I've been blue
Red sails in the sunset, I'm trusting in you

Swift wings you must borrow
Make straight for the shore
We marry tomorrow
And she goes sailing no more

Red sails in the sunset, way out on the sea
Oh, carry my loved one home safely to me

Swift wings you must borrow
Make straight for the shore
We marry tomorrow
And she goes sailing no more

Red sails in the sunset
Way out on the sea (ooh-wee-ooh, wee-ooh)
Oh, carry my loved one
Home safely to me

If I Give My Heart To You

If I give my heart to you, will you handle it with care?
Will you always treat me tenderly and in every way be fair?
If I give my heart to you, will you give me all your love?
Will you swear that you'll be true to me by the light that shines above?
And will you sigh with me when I'm sad
Smile with me when I'm glad
And always be as you are with me tonight

Think it over and be sure
Please don't answer 'til you do
When you promise all these things to me
Then I'll give my heart to you

If I give my heart to you, will you handle it with care?
Will you always treat me tenderly and in every way be fair?
If I give my heart to you, will you give me all your love?
Will you swear that you'll be true to me by the light that shines above?
And will you sigh with me when I'm sad
Smile with me when I'm glad
And always be as you are with me tonight

Think it over and be sure
Please don't answer 'til you do
When you promise all these things to me
Then I'll give my heart to you

Here's To My Lady

Here's to my lady, here's a toast to my lady,
And all that my lady means to me!
Like a hearth in the winter, a breeze in the summer,
A spring to remember is she!

Though the years may grow colder as people grow older,
It's shoulder to shoulder we'll be!
But be it sunshine or shady, here's my love to my lady,
I pray may she always love me!

Though the years may grow colder as people grow older,
It's shoulder to shoulder we'll be!
But be it sunshine or shady, here's my love to my lady,
I pray may she always love me!

Smile

Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through for you

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

Again

This couldn't happen again
This is that once in a lifetime
This is the thrill divine
What's more, this never happened before
Though I have prayed for a lifetime
That such as you would suddenly be mine
Mine to hold as I"m holding you now and yet never so near
Mine to have when the now and the here disappear
What matters, dear, for when
This doesn't happen again
We'll have this moment forever
But never, never, again

Again, this couldn't happen again
This is that once in a lifetime
This is the thrill divine
What's more, this never happened before
Though I have prayed for a lifetime
That such as you would suddenly be mine
Mine to hold as I"m holding you now and yet never so near
Mine to have when the now and the here disappear
What matters, dear, for when
This doesn't happen again
We'll have this moment forever

Because You're Mine

Because you're mine the brightest star I see looks down
My love, and envies me because you're mine
Because you're mine because you're mine
The breeze that hurries by becomes a melody
And why, because you're mine, because you're mine
I only know for as long as I may live
I'll only live for the kiss that you alone may give me
And when we kiss that isn't thunder dear
It's only my poor heart you hear, and it's applause
Because you're mine! because you're mine!

Because you're mine the brightest star I see looks down
My love, and envies me because you're mine
Because you're mine because you're mine
The breeze that hurries by becomes a melody
And why, because you're mine, because you're mine
I only know for as long as I may live
I'll only live for the kiss that you alone may give me
And when we kiss that isn't thunder dear
It's only my poor heart you hear, and it's applause

Oh, Mary Don't Weep

You're Looking At Me

Who had the girls turning hand-springs?
Crazy to love him, claimed he
Who could so misunderstand things?
You're lookin' at me

Who was so sure of his conquest
Sure as a human could be?
Who wound up losing the contest?
You're lookin' at me, you're looking at me

Where is that boy
Who was certain his charms couldn't fail?
Where is that boy
Who believed every word of this ridiculous tale?

Who was so childishly flattered
Thought he'd swept her off her feet?
Who woke to find his dream shattered
Might I repeat, might I repeat?

For you needn't strain your eyes
To see what I want you to see
That's right; you're looking at me

Where is that boy
Who was certain his charms couldn't fail?
Where is that boy
Who believed every word of this ridiculous tale?

Who was so childishly flattered
Thought he'd swept her off her feet?
Who woke to find his dream shattered
Might I repeat, might I repeat?

For you needn't strain your eyes
To see what I want you to see
That's right; you're looking at me

Wild Is Love

Wild is love!
Wild is love!
Wild-wild-wild
Is love!

As a rule, man's a fool.
When it's hot, he wants it cool.
When it's cool, he wants it hot.
Always wanting
What is not.

Wild is love
Whenever two hearts meet,
Wild is love,
Bitter, but oh so sweet.

And I know
I must go
Wherever love takes me,
Whatever love makes me,
I will be!

Like a fire
Burning beyond control,
Wild is love
Deep in my heart and soul

And though wild as the wind
And wild as the rolling sea,
Nothing could ever be
As wild as love.

And I know
I must go
Wherever love takes me,
Whatever love makes me,
I will be!

And though wild is the wind
And wild is the rolling sea,
Nothing could ever be
As wild as love...
As wild as love...
As wild as love...
As wild is love!

There Will Never Be Another You

There will be many other nights like this
And I'll be standing here with someone new
There will be other songs to sing, another fall, another spring
But there will never be another you

There will be other lips that I may kiss
But they won't thrill me like yours used to do
Yes, I may dream a million dreams but how can they come true
If there will never ever be another you

There will be other lips that I may kiss
But they won't thrill me like yours used to do
Yes, I may dream a million dreams but how can they come true
If there will never ever be another you

Tenderly

The evening breeze caressed the trees tenderly
The trembling trees embraced the breeze tenderly
Then you and I came wandering by
And lost in a sigh were we
The shore was kissed by sea and mist tenderly
I can't forget how two hearts met breathlessly
Your arms opened wide and closed me inside
You took my lips, you took my love so tenderly

A Nightingale Sang In Berkley Square

That certain night, the night we met,
There was magic abroad in the air.
There were angels dining at the ritz,
And a nightingale sang in berkeley square.

I may be right, i may be wrong,
But i'm perfectly willing to swear
That when you turned and smiled at me,
A nightingale sang in berkeley square.

The moon that lingered over londontown
Poor puzzled moon, he wore a frown.
How could he know that we two were so in love?
The whole darn world seemed upside down.

The streets of town were paved with stars,
It was such a romantic affair.
And as we kissed and said goodnight,
A nightingale sang in berkeley square.

When dawn came stealing up, all gold and blue
To interrupt our rendez-vous,
I still remember how you smiled and said,
"was that a dream? or was it true?"

Our homeward step was just as light
As the dancing of fred astaire,
And like an echo far away
A nightingale sang in berkeley square.

I Promise You

I promise you with heart sincere
That I will always love you dear
That when you need me I'll be near
I promise you

I promise you I'll build a shrine
Where we can keep our love divine
Until the very end of time
I promise you

With every dawn that I awaken
I know my chances will increase
To keep the vow I've taken
To see that your joys never cease

I promise you your heart will sing
In what will seem eternal spring
I'll try to bring you everything
I promise you

With every dawn that I awaken
I know my chances will increase
To keep the vow I've taken
To see that your joys never cease

I promise you your heart will sing
In what will seem eternal spring
I'll try to bring you everything
I promise you

Unforgettable

Unforgettable
That's what you are
Unforgettable
Tho' near or far
Like a song of love that clings to me
How the thought of you does things to me
Never before has someone been more
Unforgettable in every way
And forever more, that's how you'll stay
That's why darling it's incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am unforgettable too

Unforgettable in every way
And forever more, that's how you'll stay
That's why darling it's incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am unforgettable too

Exactly Like You

I know why I've waited, know why I've been blue
Prayed each night for someone exactly like you
Why should we spend money on a show or two?
No one does those love scenes exactly like you

You make me feel so grand; I'd like to hand the world to you
You seem to understand each foolish little scheme I'm scheming
And the dream I'm dreaming
Now I know why my mother taught me to be true
She meant me for someone exactly like you

You make me feel so grand; I wanna hand the world to you
You seem to understand each foolish little scheme that I'm scheming
And the dream that I'm dreaming
Now I know why my mother she taught me to be true
She meant me for someone exactly like you

Song Of Delilah

Little Child

These Foolish Things

Oh! Will you never let me be?
Oh! Will you never set me free?
The ties that bound us
Are still around us
There's no escape that I can see
And still those little things remain
That bring me happiness or pain

A cigarette that bears a lipstick's traces
An airline ticket to romantic places
And still my heart has wings
These foolish things remind me of you
A tinkling piano in the next apartment
Those stumbling words that told you what my heart meant
A fair ground's painted swings
These foolish things remind me of you
You came you saw you conquer'd me
When you did that to me
I knew somehow this had to be
The winds of March that make my heart a dancer
A telephone that rings but who's to answer?
Oh, how the ghost of you clings!
These foolish things remind me of you

First daffodils and long excited cables
And candle lights on little corner tables
And still my heart has wings
These foolish things remind me of you
The park at evening when the bell has sounded
The "Ile de France" with all the gulls around it
The beauty that is Spring's
These foolish things remind me of you
How strange how sweet to find you still
These things are dear to me
They seem to bring you near to me
The sigh of midnight trains in empty stations
Silk stockings thrown aside dance invitations
Oh, how the ghost of you clings!
These foolish things remind me of you

Gardenia perfume ling'ring on a pillow
Wild strawb'ries only seven francs a kilo
And still my heart has wings
These foolish things remind me of you
The smile of Garbo and the scent of roses
The waiters whistling as the last bar closes
The song that Crosby sings
These foolish things remind me of you
How strange how sweet to find you still
These things are dear to me
They seem to bring you near to me
The scent of smould'ring leaves, the wail of steamers
Two lovers on the street who walk like dreamers
Oh, how the ghost of you clings!
These foolish things remind me of you
