You Are My World

length: 2:51
composer: Umberto Bindi
lyricist: Gino Paoli
translator: Carl Sigman

You're my world--you're every breath I take
You're my world--you're every move I make
Other eyes see the stars up in the sky
But for me they shine within your eyes

As the trees reach for the sun above
So my arms reach out to you for love
With your hand resting in mine
I feel a power so divine

You're my world--you are my night and day
You're my world--you're every prayer I pray
If our love ceases to be
That is the end of my world for me

With your hand resting in mine
I feel a power so divine

You're my world--you are my night and day
You're my world--you're every prayer I pray
If our love ceases to be
That is the end of my world for me
End of my world
End of my world
End of my world for me

Let Your Love Flow

length: 2:38
composer: Larry E. Williams
lyricist: Larry E. Williams
There's a reason for the sunshine day
There's a reason why I'm feelin' so high
Must be the season
When that love light shines all around us

So let that feeling grab you deep inside
And send you reeling where your love can't hide
And then go stealing through the summer nights
With your lover

Just let your love flow like a mountain stream
And let your love grow with the smallest of dreams
And let your love show
And you'll know what I mean; it's the season

Let your love fly like a bird on the wing
And let your love bind you to all living things
And let your love shine and you'll know what I mean
That's the reason

There's a reason for the warm sweet nights
There's a reason for the candle lights
Must be the season when those love rites shine
All around us

So let the wonder take you into space
And lay you under its loving embrace
Feel the thunder as it warms your face
You can't hold back

Just let your love flow like a mountain stream
And let your love grow with the smallest of dreams
And let your love show and you'll know what I mean
It's the season

Let your love fly like a bird on the wing
And let your love bind you to all living things
And let your love shine and you'll know what I mean
That's the reason

As Time Goes By

length: 2:47
writer: Herman Hupfeld
lyricist: Herman Hupfeld
composer: Herman Hupfeld
You must remember this
A kiss is still a kiss
A sigh is just a sigh
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by

And when two lovers woo
They still say I love you
On that you can rely
No matter what the future brings
As time goes by

Moonlight and love songs
Never out of date
Hearts full of passion, jealousy and hate
Woman needs man
And man must have his mate
That no one can deny

It's still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by

It's still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die
The world will always welcome lovers
Hah......as time goes by..........

I Can't Stop Loving You

length: 3:18
composer: Don Gibson
lyricist: Don Gibson
So you're leaving
In the morning
On the early train
I could say everything's alright
I could pretend and say good bye

Got your ticket
Got your suitcase
Got your leaving smile

I could say that's the way it goes
I could pretend and you won't know
That I was lying
'Cause I can't stop loving you
I can't stop loving you
No, I can't stop loving you

Though I try
Took a taxi
To the station
Not a word was said
I saw you walk across the road
Maybe the last time, I don't know

Feeling humble
I heard a rumble
On the railway track
And when I hear the whistle blow
I walk away and you don't know

That I was lying
'Cause I can't stop loving you
No, I can't stop loving you
I can't stop loving you
Though I try

'Cause I can't stop loving you
I can't stop loving you
No, I can't stop loving you
Though I try

I, I who have nothing

He, He buys you diamonds
Bright, sparkling diamonds
But believe me, dear when I say,
That he can give you the world,
But he'll never love you the way
I Love You

He can take you anyplace he wants
To fancy clubs and restaurants
But I can only watch you with
My nose pressed up against the window pane

I, I who have nothing

Must watch you, go dancing by
Wrapped in the arms of somebody else
When darling it's I
Who Loves you

I Love You

And I promise it's gonna be true
Please let me stay don't you send me away oh no no
Ah tell me baby that you need me
Say you'll never leave me love me tonight
Hold me now my heart is aching
And until the dawn is breaking love me tonight
Something is burning inside
Something that can be denied
I can't let you out of my sight darling love me tonight
I've waited so long for the girl of my dreams to appear
And now I can't hardly believe that you really are here
Here in my arms you belong
How can this feeling be wrong
Darling be kind for I'm out of my mind over you
Ah tell me baby that you need me
Say you'll never leave me love me tonight
Baby now the pain is stronger
I can't wait a moment longer love me tonight

Save the Last Dance for Me

length: 2:18
writer: Mort Shuman, Doc Pomus
You can dance-every dance with the guy
Who gives you the eye,let him hold you tight
You can smile-every smile for the man
Who held your hand neath the pale moon light
But don't forget who's takin' you home
And in whose arms you're gonna be
So darlin' save the last dance for me

Oh I know that the music's fine
Like sparklin' wine,go and have your fun
Laugh and sing,but while we're apart
Don't give your heart to anyone
But don't forget who's takin' you home
And in whose arms you're gonna be
So darlin' save the last dance for me

Baby don't you know I love you so
Can't you feel it when we touch
I will never never let you go
I love you oh so much

You can dance,go and carry on
Till the night is gone
And it's time to go
If he asks if you're all alone
Can he walk you home,you must tell him no
'Cause don't forget who's taking you home
And in whose arms you're gonna be
Save the last dance for me

'Cause don't forget who's taking you home
And in whose arms you're gonna be
So darling,save the last dance for me
Save the last dance for me
Save the last dance for me.

Born to Lose

length: 2:46
composer: Ted Daffan
lyricist: Ted Daffan
Born to lose, I've lived my life in vain
Every dream has only brought me pain
All my life, I've always been so blue
Born to lose and now I'm losing you

Born to lose, it seems so hard to bear
How I long to always have you near
You've grown tired and now you say we're thru
Born to lose and now I'm losing you

Yes, you're all the happiness that I ever meet
I just guess I am born to lose
Now I'm losing you

Born to lose, my every hope is gone
It's so hard to face that empty dawn
You were all the happiness I knew
Born to lose and now I'm losing you
Born to lose and now I'm losing you

Spanish Harlem

length: 2:14
composer: Phil Spector
lyricist: Jerry Leiber
There is a rose in Spanish Harlem
A red rose up in Spanish Harlem
It is a special one, it's never seen the sun
It only comes out when the moon is on the run
And all the stars are gleaming
It's growing in the street right up through the concrete
But soft and sweet and dreaming

There is a rose in Spanish Harlem
A red rose up in Spanish Harlem
With eyes as black as coal that look down in my soul
And starts a fire there and then I lose control
I have to beg your pardon

I'm going to pick that rose
And watch her as she grows in my garden
I'm going to pick that rose
And watch her as she grows in my garden

(There is a rose in Spanish Harlem)
La-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la-la
(There is a rose in Spanish Harlem)
La-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la-la
(There is a rose in Spanish Harlem)

Right Place, Wrong Time

length: 3:01
lyricist: Mac Rebennack
composer: Mac Rebennack
I was in the right place
But it must have been the wrong time
I'd of said the right thing
But I must have used the wrong line
I been in the right trip
But I must have used the wrong car
My head was in a bad place
But I'm wondering what it's good for

I been the right place
But it must have been the wrong time
My head was in a bad place
But I'm having such a good time

I been runnin' tryin' to get hung up in my mind
Just got to give myself a little talking to this time
Every little brain needs some surgery
I've got to cure this insecurity

I been in the wrong place
But it must have been the right time
I been in the right place
But it must have been the wrong song
I been in the right vein
But it seems like the wrong arm
I been in the right world
But it seems wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong

Slipping, dodging ,sneaking
Creeping hiding out down the street
See me life shaking with every who I meet
Refried confusion is making itself clear
Wonder which way do I go to get on out of here

I been in the right place
But it must have been the wrong time
I'd have said the right thing
But I must have used the wrong line
I'd a took the right road
But I must have took a wrong turn
Would have made the right move
But I made it at the wrong time
I been on the right road
But I must have used the wrong car
My head was in a good place
And I wonder what it's bad for

Delilah

length: 2:39
composer: Les Reed
lyricist: Barry Mason
I saw the light on the night that I passed by her window
I saw the flickering shadow of love on her blind
She was my woman
As she deceived me I watched and went out of my mind

My my my Delilah
Why why why Delilah
I could see, that girl was no good for me
But I was lost like a slave that no man could free

At break of day when that man drove away I was waiting
I crossed the street to her house and she opened the door
She stood there laughing
I felt the knife in my hand and she laughed no more

My my my Delilah
Why why why Delilah
So before they come to break down the door
Forgive me Delilah I just couldn't take any more
Forgive me Delilah I just couldn't take any more

You Don't Have to Say You Love Me

length: 2:34
composer: Pino Donaggio
lyricist: Vicki Wickham, Simon Napier-Bell, Vito Pallavicini
When I said I needed you
You said you would always stay
It wasn't me who changed but you and now you've gone away
Don't you see that now you've gone
And I'm left here on my own
That I have to follow you and beg you to come home

You don't have to say you love me just be close at hand
You don't have to stay forever I will understand
Believe me, believe me I can't help but love you
But believe me I'll never tie you down
Left alone with just a memory
Life seems dead and quite unreal
All that's left is loneliness there's nothing left to feel

You don't have to say you love me just be close at hand
You don't have to stay forever
I will understand believe me, believe me
You don't have to say you love me just be close at hand
You don't have to stay forever
I will understand, believe me, believe me

length: 1:58
composer: Paul Anka
lyricist: Paul Anka
Well, she's all you'd ever want
She's the kind I like to flaunt and take to dinner
But she always knows her place
She's got style, she's got grace, she's a winner
She's a lady
Oh, whoa, whoa, she's a lady
Talkin' about that little lady
And the lady is mine

Well, she's never in the way
Always something nice to say, and what a blessin'

Well, she never asks very much
And I don't refuse her
Always treat her with respect

And I don't want to lose her
Help me build a mountain
From a little pile of clay, hey hey hey

Well, she knows what I'm about
She can take what I dish out, and that's not easy
But she knows me through and through
And she knows just what to do and how to please me

I Can See Clearly Now

length: 2:05
composer: Johnny Nash
lyricist: Johnny Nash
I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.

I think I can make it now, the pain is gone
All of the bad feelings have disappeared
Here is the rainbow I've been prayin' for
It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.

Look all around, there's nothin' but blue skies
Look straight ahead, nothin' but blue skies [really long!]

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.

Green Green Grass of Home

length: 2:25
composer: Claude “Curly” Putman, Jr.
lyricist: Claude “Curly” Putman, Jr.
The old home town looks the same
As I step down from the train,
And there to meet me is my Mama and Papa.
Down the road I look and there runs Mary
Hair of gold and lips like cherries.

It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.
Yes, they'll all come to meet me, arms reaching, smiling sweetly.
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.

The old house is still standing tho' the paint is cracked and dry,
And there's that old oak tree that I used to play on.
Down the lane I walk with my sweet Mary,
Hair of gold and lips like cherries.
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.

Then I awake and look around me,
At four grey walls that surround me
And I realize, yes, that I was only dreaming.
For there's a guard and there's a sad old padre,
Arm in arm, we'll walk at daybreak.
Again I touch the green, green grass of home.

Yes, they'll all come to see me
In the shade of that old oak tree
As they lay me neath the green, green grass of home.

Danny Boy

length: 2:38
lyricist: Frederick Edward Weatherly
arranger: Julie Knowles
publishing: Alfred Music
composer: [traditional]
Oh, Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side.
The summer's gone, and all the roses falling,
It's you, it's you must go and I must bide.

But come ye back when summer's in the meadow,
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow,
It's I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow,
Oh, Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so!

But when ye come, and all the flowers are dying,
If I am dead, as dead I well may be,
You'll come and find the place where I am lying,
And kneel and say an Ave there for me.
And I shall hear, though soft you tread above me,
And all my grave will warmer, sweeter be,
For you will bend and tell me that you love me,
And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me!

Proud Mary

length: 2:18
lyricist: John Fogerty
composer: John Fogerty

Looking for a job in the city,
Working for The Man every night and day,
And I never lost one minute of my sleeping,
Worrying 'bout the way things might have been.

Big wheel keep on turning,
Proud Mary keep on burning,
Rolling, rolling, rolling on the river.

Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis,
Pumped a lot of 'tane down in New Orleans,
But I never saw the good side of the city,
Until I hitched a ride on a river boat queen.

Big wheel keep on turning,
Proud Mary keep on burning,
Rolling, rolling, rolling on the river.

If you come down to the river,
Bet you gonna find some people who live.
You don't have to worry 'cause you have no money,
The people on the river are happy to give.

Big wheel keep on turning,
Proud Mary keep on burning,
Rolling, rolling, rolling on the river.

Looking for a job in the city,
Working for The Man every night and day,
And I never lost one minute of my sleeping,
Worrying 'bout the way things might have been.

Big wheel keep on turning,
Proud Mary keep on burning,
Rolling, rolling, rolling on the river.

Rolling, rolling, rolling on the river.
Rolling, rolling, rolling on the river.
Rolling, rolling, rolling on the river.

Lady Madonna

length: 2:17
writer: Paul McCartney, John Lennon
Lady Madonna, children at your feet
Wonder how you manage to make ends meet
Who finds the money when you pay the rent?
Did you think that money was heaven sent?

Friday night arrives without a suitcase
Sunday morning creeping like a nun
Monday's child has learned to tie his bootlegs
See how they run

Lady Madonna, baby at your breast
Wonders how you manage to feed the rest
Pa pa pa pa
See how they run

Lady Madonna lying on the bed
Listen to the music playing in your head

Tuesday afternoon is never-ending
Wednesday morning papers didn't come
Thursday night your stocking needed mending
See how they run

Lady Madonna, children at your feet
Wonder how you manage to make ends meet

Do You Think I'm Sexy

length: 2:33
writer: Carmine Appice, Rod Stewart, Duane Hitchings
She sits alone, waiting for suggestions.
He's so nervous, avoiding all the questions.
His lips are dry, her heart is gently pounding.
Don't you just know exactly what they're thinking?

If you want my body and you think I'm sexy,
Come on, sugar, let me know.
If you really need me, just reach out and touch me.
Come on, honey, tell me so.

He's acting shy, looking for an answer.
Come on, honey, let's spend the night together.
Now, hold on a minute before we go much further.
Give me a dime so I can phone my mother.
They catch a cab to his high-rise apartment.
At last he can tell her exactly what his heart meant.

If you want my body and you think I'm sexy,
Come on, sugar, let me know.
If you really need me, just reach out and touch me.
Come on, honey, tell me so.

His heart's beating like a drum,
'Cause at last he's got this girl home.
Relax, baby. Now we're all alone.

They wake at dawn, 'cause all the birds are singing.
Two total strangers, but that ain't what they're thinking.
Outside it's cold, misty, and it's raining.
They got each other. Neither one's complaining.
He says, I'm sorry, but I'm out of milk and coffee.
Never mind, sugar. We can watch the early movie.

If you want my body and you think I'm sexy,
Come on, sugar, let me know.
If you really need me, just reach out and touch me.
Come on, honey, tell me so.
