Daughter of Darkness

length: 2:02
writer: Geoff Stephens, Les Reed
Woman, I can remember a woman
Warm were her kisses and tender was she
Lying there in my arms
Why, why did you deceive me so
What devil inside made you go
When I needed you most of all

Daughter of darkness
Stay out of my life, my life
You took my heart, you broke it apart
Daughter of darkness
Daughter of darkness
Please leave me alone forever
Daughter of darkness gone is the love
That we shared together

Heaven, we had our own kind of heaven
Sharing together, the magic of love
In a world of our own
Then oh so suddenly you were gone
The love I depended upon disappeared when you went away

Daughter of darkness stay out of my life, my life
You took my heart, you broke it apart
Oh daughter of darkness
Daughter of darkness leave me alone forever
Daughter of darkness gone is the love
That we shared together
Daughter of darkness stay out of my life, my life
You took my heart, you broke it apart
Oh daughter of darkness

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

I (Who Have Nothing)

length: 2:45
lyricist: Jerry Leiber, Mike Stoller
composer: Carlo Donida
writer: Giulio Rapetti
I, I who have nothing
I, I who have no one
Adore you and want you so
I'm just a no one with nothing to give you but, oh
I love you

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 the way
I love you

He can take you any place 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
I, I who have no one
Must watch you go dancing by
Wrapped in the arms of somebody else when, darling, it's I
Who loves you

I love you
I love you
I love you

Love Me Tonight

length: 2:36
lyricist: Barry Mason
composer: Mario Panzeri, Lorenzo Pilat
I know that it's late and I really must leave you alone
But you're good to hold and I feel such a long way from home
Yes I know that our love is still new
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
Something is burning inside
Something that can be denied
I can't let you out of my sight darling love me tonight
Let me love you baby
Let me love you baby
Let me love you tonight
Love me tonight

She's a Lady

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'
I can leave her on her own
Knowin' she's okay alone and there's no messin'
She's a lady
Oh, whoa, whoa, she's a lady
Talkin' about that little lady
And the lady is mine

Well, she never asks very much
And I don't refuse her
Always treat her with respect
I never would abuse her
What she's got is hard to find
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
She's a lady
Oh, whoa, whoa, she's a lady
Talkin' about that little lady
And the lady is mine
Yeah, yeah, yeah, she's a lady
Oh, whoa, whoa, she's a lady
Listen to me people she's a lady
Yeah yeah yeah yeah she's a lady
Whoa whoa whoa she's a lady
Talkin' about the little lady
whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa
She's a lady
Yeah yeah yeah she's a lady
Whoa whoa lord, she's a lady
I can't live without that
She's a lady
Ooh ooh she's a lady

My Way

length: 3:52
composer: Claude François, Jacques Revaux
lyricist: Paul Anka
arranger: Paul Anka
previous attribution: Gilles Thibaut
translator: Bobby Cruz
And now the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I'll say it clear
I'll state my case of which I'm certain

I've lived a life that's full
I've traveled each and every highway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way

Regrets, I've had a few
But then again too few to mention
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exception

I planned each charted course
Each careful step along the byway
But more, much more than this
I did it my way

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all, when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out
I faced it all and I stood tall
And did it my way

I've loved, I've laughed, and cried
I've had my fill; my share of losing
And now as tears subside
I find it all so amusing

To think I did all that
And, may I say, not in a shy way
No, oh, no, not me
I did it my way

For what is a man? What has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught
To say the things he truly feels
And not the words of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way

Spanish Eyes

length: 2:06
Blue Spanish eyes
Teardrops are falling from your Spanish eyes
Please, please don't cry

This is just adios and not goodbye
Soon I'll return
Bringing you all the love your heart can hold
Please say "Si, si"
Say you and your Spanish eyes will wait for me

Blue Spanish eyes
Prettiest eyes in all of Mexico
True Spanish eyes

Please smile at me once more before I go
Soon I'll return
Bringing you all the love your heart can hold
Please say "Si, si"
Say you and your Spanish eyes will wait for me
Say you and your Spanish eyes will wait for me

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

Bridge Over Troubled Water

length: 3:04
lyricist: Paul Simon
composer: Paul Simon
When you're weary, feeling small
When tears are in your eyes
I'll dry them all
I'm on your side, oh, when times get rough
And friends just can't be found

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on, silver girl, sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine....
Ooooh, and if you ever need a friend
I'm sailing right behind

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind.......



Yesterday

length: 2:58
writer: Paul McCartney, John Lennon
Yesterday
All my trouble seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they're here to stay
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Suddenly
I'm not half the man I used to be
There's a shadow hanging over me
Oh, yesterday came suddenly

Why she had to go I don't know
She wouldn't say
I said something wrong
Now I long for yesterday

Yesterday
Love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Why she had to go

Yesterday
Love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday

You Don't Have to Say You Love Me

length: 2:42
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

I Can't Get No (Satisfaction)

length: 1:41
writer: Keith Richards, Mick Jagger
I can't get no satisfaction, I can't get no satisfaction
'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can't get no, I can't get no

When I'm driving in my car, and the man comes on the radio
He's telling me more and more about some useless information
Supposed to fire my imagination

I can't get no. Oh, no, no, no. Hey, hey, hey
That's what I say
I can't get no satisfaction, I can't get no satisfaction
'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can't get no, I can't get no

When I'm watching my TV and a man comes on and tells me
How white my shirts can be
But, he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't smoke
The same cigarettes as me

I can't get no. Oh, no, no, no. Hey, hey, hey
That's what I say
I can't get no satisfaction, I can't get no satisfaction
'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can't get no, I can't get no

When I'm riding round the world
And I'm doing this and I'm signing that
And I'm trying to make some girl, who tells me
Baby, better come back maybe next week
'Cause you see I'm on a losing streak
I can't get no. Oh, no, no, no. Hey, hey, hey
That's what I say. I can't get no, I can't get no
I can't get no satisfaction, no satisfaction
No satisfaction, no satisfaction

You're My World

length: 2:57
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

Don't Be Cruel

length: 1:58
writer: Otis Blackwell, Elvis Presley
You know I can be found,
Sitting home all alone,
If you can't come around,
At least please telephone.

Don't be cruel to a heart that's true.
Baby, if I made you mad
For something I might have said,
Please, let's forget the past,

The future looks bright ahead,
Don't be cruel to a heart that's true.
I don't want no other love,
Baby it's just you I'm thinking of.

Don't stop thinking of me,
Don't make me feel this way,
Come on over here and love me,
You know what I want you to say.

Don't be cruel to a heart that's true.
Why should we be apart?
I really love you baby, cross my heart.
Let's walk up to the preacher

And let us say I do,
Then you'll know you'll have me,
And I'll know I'll have you too,
Don't be cruel to a heart that's true.

I don't want no other love,
Baby it's just you I'm thinking of.
Don't be cruel to a heart that's true.
Don't be cruel to a heart that's true.

I don't want no other love,
Baby it's just you I'm thinking of

Green Green Grass of Home

length: 2:33
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.
