500 Miles

If you miss the train I’m on
You will know that I am gone
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles
A hundred miles, a hundred miles
A hundred miles, a hundred miles
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles

Lord, I’m one, Lord, I’m two
Lord, I’m three, Lord, I’m four
Lord, I’m five hundred miles from my home
Five hundred miles, five hundred miles
Five hundred miles, five hundred miles
Lord, I’m five hundred miles from my home

Not a shirt on my back
Not a penny to my name
Lord I can’t go bsck home this a-way
This a-way, this a-way
This a-way, this a-way
Lord, I can’t go back home this a-way

If you miss the train I’m on
You will know that I am gone
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles

Abilene

Abilene, Abilene
Prettiest town I’ve ever seen
Women there don’t treat you mean
In Abilene, my Abilene

I sit alone most every night
Watch those trains roll out of sight
Don’t I wish they were carrying me
Back to Abilene, my Abilene

Abilene, Abilene
Prettiest town I’ve ever seen
Women there don’t treat you mean
In Abilene, my Abilene

Crowded city, ain’t nothing free
Nothing in this town for me
Wish to the Lord that I could be
In Abilene, my Abilene

Abilene, Abilene
Prettiest town I’ve ever seen
Women there don’t treat you mean
In Abilene, my Abilene

Song List


Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive

You’ve got to accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don’t mess with Mister In-Between

You’ve got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom down to the minimum
Have faith or pandemonium
Liable to walk upon the scene

To illustrate his last remark
Jonah in the whale, Noah in the ark
What did they do
Just when everything looked so dark

Man, they said we better, accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don’t mess with Mister In-Between
No, do not mess with Mister In-Between

Song List


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’ 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’ Savin’ my love for you

Like Jack Horner, off 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’ Savin’ my love for you

Song List


Ain’t We Got Fun?

Ev’ry morning, ev’ry evening, ain’t we got fun?
Not much money, Oh, but honey, ain’t we got fun?
The rent’s unpaid dear. We haven’t a car
But anyway, dear, we’ll stay as we are
In the winter in the summer, son’t we have fun?
Times are bum and getting bummer, still we have fun
There’s nothing surer, the rich get rich and the poor get children
In the meantime, in between time, ain’t we got fun?

Ev’ry morning, ev’ry evening, ain’t we got fun?
Not much money, Oh, but honey, ain’t we got fun?
The rent’s unpaid dear. We haven’t a car
But anyway, dear, we’ll stay as we are
Even if we owe the grocer, don’t we have fun?
Tax collector’s getting closer, still we have fun?
There’s nothing surer, the rich get rich and the poor get poorer
In the meantime, in between time, ain’t we got fun?

Ev’ry morning, ev’ry evening, ain’t we got fun?
Not much money, Oh, but honey, ain’t we got fun?
The rent’s unpaid dear. We haven’t a car
But anyway, dear, we’ll stay as we are
Landlords mad and getting madder. Ain’t we got fun?
Times are bad and getting badder, still we have fun
There’s nothing surer, the rich get rich and the poor get poorer
In the meantime, in between time, ain’t we got fun?

Alexander’s Ragtime Band

Come on and hear, come on and hear Alexander’s Ragtime Band
Come on and hear, come on and hear ’bout the best band in the land
They can play a bugle call like you never heard before
So natural that you want to go to war
That’s just the bestest band what am, oh honey lamb

Come on along, come on along, let me take you by the hand
Up to the man, up to the man who’s the leader of the band
And if you care to hear the Swanee River played in ragtime
Come on and hear, come on and hear Alexander’s Ragtime Band

Come on and hear, come on and hear Alexander’s Ragtime Band
Come on and hear, come on and hear it’s the best band in the land
They can play a bugle call like you never heard before
That’s just the bestest band what am, oh honey lamb

Come on along, come on along, let me take you by the hand
Up to the man, I’m talking about the man, the leader of the band
And if you care to hear the Swanee River played in ragtime
Come on and hear, come on and hear Alexander’s Ragtime Band

All Along the Watchtower

There must be some way out of here
Said the joker to the thief
There’s too much confusion
I can’t get no relief
Businessmen, they drink my wine
Plowmen dig my earth
None of them along the line
Know what any of it is worth

No reason to get excited
The thief, he kindly spoke
There are many here among us
Who feel that life is but a joke
But you and I, we’ve been through that
And this is not our fate
So let us not talk falsely now
The hour is getting late

All along the watchtower
Princes kept the view
While all the women came and went
Barefoot servants, too
Outside in the distance
A wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching
The wind began to howl

Song List


All I Have to Do Is Dream

Dre-eam, dream, dream, dream
Dre-eam, dream, dream, dream

When I want you in my arms
When I want you and all your charms
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Dre-eam, dream, dream, dream

When I feel blue in the night
And I need you to hold me tight
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is dre-ee-eam

I can make you mine, taste your lips of wine
Anytime night or day
Only trouble is, gee whiz
I’m dreamin’ my life away

I need you so that I could die
I love you so and that is why
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is dre-ee-eam

I can make you mine, taste your lips of wine
Anytime night or day
Only trouble is, gee whiz
I’m dreamin’ my life away

I need you so that I could die
I love you so and that is why
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Dre-eam, dream, dream, dream

Song List


All My Loving

Close your eyes and I’ll kiss you
Tomorrow I’ll miss you
Remember I’ll always be true
And then while I’m away
I’ll write home every day
And I’ll send all my loving to you

I’ll pretend that I’m missing
The lips I am missing
And hope that my dreams will come true
And then while I’m away
I’ll write home every day
And I’ll send all my loving to you

All my loving, I will send to you
All my loving, darling, I’ll be true

Close your eyes and I’ll kiss you
Tomorrow I’ll miss you
Remember I’ll always be true
And then while I’m away
I’ll write home every day
And I’ll send all my loving to you

All my loving, I will send to you
All my loving, darling, I’ll be true
All my loving, all my loving
All my loving, I will send to you

Song List


All of Me

All of me, why not take all of me
Can’t you see, I’m no good without you
Take my arms, I want to lose them
Take my lips, I’ll never use them

Your goodbye left me with eyes that cry
I know that I’m no good without you
You took the part that once was my heart
So why not take all of me

Song List


Always On My Mind

Maybe I didn’t love you quite as often as I could have
Maybe I didn’t treat you quite as good as I should have
If I made you feel second best, I’m so sorry I was blind
You were always on my mind, you were always on my mind

Maybe I didn’t hold you all those lonely, lonely times
I guess I never told you I’m so happy that you’re mine
Little things I should have said and done, I just never took the time
You were always on my mind, you were always on my mind

Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn’t died
Give me, give me one more chance to keep you satisfied
I’ll keep you satisfied

Little things I should have said and done, I just never took the time
But you were always on my mind, you were always on my mind

You were always on my mind, you were always on my mind

Song List


Are You Lonesome Tonight?

Are you lonesome tonight, do you miss me tonight?
Are you sorry we drifted apart?
Does your memory stray to a brighter sunny day
When I kissed you and called you sweetheart?

Do the chairs in your parlor seem empty and bare?
Do you gaze at your doorstep and picture me there?
Is your heart filled with pain, shall I come back again?
Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight?

I wonder if you’re lonesome tonight.
You know someone said that the world’s a stage.
And each must play a part
Fate had me playing in love you as my sweetheart

Act one was when we met
I loved you at first glance
You read your line so cleverly and never missed a cue
Then came act two, you seemed to change and you acted strange
And why I’ll never know

Honey, you lied when you said you loved me
And I had no cause to doubt you
But I’d rather go on hearing your lies
Than go on living without you

Now the stage is bare and I’m standing there
With emptiness all around
And if you won’t come back to me
Then make them bring the curtain down

Is your heart filled with pain, shall I come back again?
Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight?

Song List


Arthur McBride

Oh, me and my cousin one Arthur McBride
As we went a-walking down by the seaside
Mark now what followed and what might betide
For it bein’ on Christmas morning
Now for recreation we went on a tramp
And we met Sergeant Napper and Corporal Ramp
And the little wee drummer intending to camp
For the day being pleasant and charming

“Good morning, good morning,” the Sergeant he cried
“And the same to you gentlemen,” we did reply
Intending no harm as we meant to pass by
For it bein’ on Christmas morning
But says he, “My fine fellows, if you will enlist
“It’s ten guineas in gold I will slip into your fists
“And a crown in the bargain for to kick up the dust
“And drink the King’s health in the morning

“For a soldier he leads a very fine life
“He always is blessed with a charming young wife
“And he pays all his debts without sorrow or strife
“And he always lives pleasant and charming
“And a soldier he always is decent and clean
“In the finest of clothing he’s constantly seen
“While other poor fellows look dirty and mean
“And sup on thin gruel in the morning.”

But says Arthur, “I wouldn’t be proud of your clothes
“For you’ve only the lend of them, as I suppose
“And you dare not change them one night, for you know
“If you do you’ll be flogged in the morning
“And although that we are single and free
“We take great delight in our own company
“And we have no desire strange places to see
“Although that your offers are charming

“And we have no desire to take your advance
“All hazards and dangers we barter on chance
“For you would have no scruple for to send us to France
“Where we would get shot without warning.”
“Oh no,” says the Sergeant, “I’ll hear no such chat
“And I never will take it from snappy young brats
“For if you insult me with one other word
“I’ll cut off your heads in the morning.”

And then Arthur and I we soon drew our odds
And we scarce gave them time for to draw their own blades
When a trusty shillelagh came over their heads
And bade them take that as fair warning
And their old rusty rapiers that hung by their sides
We flung them as far as we could in the tide
“Now take them out, devils,” cried Arthur McBride
“And temper their edge in the morning!”

And the little wee drummer we flattened his pouch
And we made a football of his rowdy-dowd-dowd
Threw it in the tide for to rock and to roll
And bade it a tedious returning
And we having no money, paid them off in cracks
And we paid no respect to their two bloody backs
But we lathered them there like a pair of wet sacks
And left them for dead in the morning

And so to conclude and to finish disputes
We obligingly asked if they wanted recruits
For we were the lads who would give them hard clouts
And bid them look sharp in the morning
Oh, me and my cousin one Arthur McBride
As we went a-walking down by the seaside
Mark now what followed and what might betide
For it bein’ on Christmas morning

Song List


Auld Lang Syne

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And days of auld lang syne

For auld lang syne, my dear
For auld lang syne
We’ll take a cup of kindness yet
For auld lang syne

Baby, I Need Your Lovin’

Ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo

Baby, I need your lovin. Baby, I need your lovin’
Although you’re never near, your voice I often hear
Another day, another night, I long to hold you tight Cuz I’m so lonely

Baby, I need your lovin’
Got to have all your lovin’
Baby, I need your lovin’
Got to have all your lovin’

Some say it’s a sign of weakness for a man to beg

Then weak I would rather be, if it means havin’ you to keep
Cuz lately, I’ve been losin’ sleep

Baby, I need your lovin’
Got to have all your lovin’
Baby, I need your lovin’
Got to have all your lovin’

Every night I call your name
Sometimes I wonder, girl, will I ever be the same?
When you see me smile, you know things have gotten worse
Any smile you might see has all been rehearsed
Darlin, I can’t go on without you
This emptiness won’t let me live without you
This loneliness inside me, darlin, makes me feel half alive

Baby, I need your lovin’
Got to have all your lovin’
Baby, I need your lovin’
Got to have all your lovin’

Song List


Baby Love

Ooo, hoo

Baby love, my baby love
I need you oh how I need you
But all you do is treat me bad
Break my heart and leave me sad
Tell me what did I do wrong
To make you stay away so long

’Cause baby love, my baby love
Been missing ya, miss kissing ya
Instead of breaking up
(Don’t throw our love away)
Let’s start some kissing and making up
(Don’t throw our love away)
Don’t throw our love away
In my arms why don’t you stay?

Need ya, need ya, baby love, my baby love

Baby love, my baby love
Why must we separate my love?
All of my whole life through
(Don’t throw our love away)
I never love no one but you
(Don’t throw our love away)
Why you do me like you do?
I guess it’s me

Ooo, hoo

Need to hold you once again my love
Feel your warm embrace my love
Don’t throw our love away
(Don’t throw our love away)
Please don’t do me this way
(Don’t throw our love away)
Not happy like I used to be
Loneliness has got the best of

Me my love, my baby love
I need ya, oh, how I need ya
Why you do me like you do
(Don’t throw our love away)
After I’ve been true to you
(Don’t throw our love away)
So deep in love with you
Baby, baby, ooh

’Til it hurt me, ’til it hurt me
Ooh, baby love
Don’t throw our love away
(Don’t throw our love away)
Don’t throw our love away
(Don’t throw our love away)

Bad Moon Rising

I see the bad moon a-rising
I see trouble on the way
I see earthquakes and lightnin’
I see bad times today

Don’t go around tonight
Well, it’s bound to take your life
There’s a bad moon on the rise

I hear hurricanes a-blowing
I know the end is coming soon
I fear rivers overflowing
I hear the voice of rage and ruin

Don’t go around tonight
Well, it’s bound to take your life
There’s a bad moon on the rise

Hope you got your things together
Hope you are quite prepared to die
Looks like we’re in for nasty weather
One eye is taken for an eye

Don’t go around tonight
Well, it’s bound to take your life
There’s a bad moon on the rise

Bad, Bad Leroy Brown

Well, the south side of Chicago
Is the baddest part of town
And if you go down there, you better just beware
Of a man named Leroy Brown

Now Leroy more than trouble
You see he stand ’bout six-foot-four
All the downtown ladies call him treetop lover
All the men just call him sir

And he’s bad, bad Leroy Brown
The baddest man in the whole damned town
Badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog

Now Leroy he a gambler
And he like his fancy clothes
And he like to wave his diamond rings
In front of everybody’s nose

He got a custom Continental
He got an Eldorado too
He got a 32 gun in his pocket for fun
He got a razor in his shoe

And he’s bad, bad Leroy Brown
The baddest man in the whole damned town
Badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog

Well, it was Friday ’bout a week ago
And Leroy shootin’ dice
And at the edge of the bar sat a girl named Doris
And oo, that girl looked nice

Well, he cast his eyes upon her
And the trouble soon began
And Leroy Brown, he learned a lesson ’bout a-messin’
With the wife of a jealous man

And he’s bad, bad Leroy Brown
The baddest man in the whole damned town
Badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog

Well, them two men took to fighting
And when they pulled them from the floor
Leroy looked like a jigsaw puzzle
With a couple of pieces gone

And he’s bad, bad Leroy Brown
The baddest man in the whole damned town
Badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog

Song List


The Band Played On

Casey would waltz with a strawberry blonde
And the band played on
He’d glide ’cross the floor with the girl he adored
And the band played on
But his brain was so loaded it nearly exploded
The poor girl would shake with alarm
He’d ne’er leave the girl with the strawberry curls
And the band played on

Beautiful Dreamer

Beautiful dreamer, wake unto me
Starlight and dewdrops are waiting for thee
Sounds of the rude world heard in the day
Lull’d by the moonlight have all pass’d away

Beautiful dreamer, queen of my song
List while I woo thee with soft melody
Gone are the cares of life’s busy throng
Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me!

Beautiful dreamer, wake unto me
Beautiful dreamer, out on the sea
Mermaids are chanting the wild Lorelei
Over the streamlet vapors are borne

Waiting to fade at the bright coming morn
Beautiful dreamer, beam on my heart
E’en as the morn on the streamlet and sea
Then will all clouds of sorrow depart

Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me
Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me

Bill Bailey, Won’t You Please Come Home

Won’t you come home, Bill Bailey, won’t you come home

I’ll do the cookin’, honey, I’ll pay the rent
I know I done you wrong

Remember that rainy evenin’

Yes, I know that I’m to blame, and ain’t that a shame

Blowin’ in the Wind

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
Yes’n how many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes’n how many times must the cannonballs fly
Before they’re forever banned?

The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind

How many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes’n how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes’n how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?

The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind

How many years can a mountain exist
Before it’s washed to the sea?
Yes’n how many years can some people exist
Before they’re allowed to be free?
Yes’n how many times can a man turn his head
Pretending he just doesn’t see?

The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind

Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain

In the twilight glow I see her
Blue eyes crying in the rain
As we kissed goodbye parted
I knew we’d never meet again

Love is like a dying ember
Only memories remain
Through the ages I’ll remember
Blues eyes crying in the rain

Now my hair has turned to silver
All my life I’ve loved in vain
I can see her star in heaven
Blue eyes crying in the rain

Someday when meet up yonder
We’ll stroll hand in hand again
In a land that knows no parting
Blues eyes crying in the rain

Song List


Blue Moon

Blue Moon, you saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

Blue Moon, you knew just what I was there for
You heard me saying a prayer for
Someone I really could care for

And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will ever hold
I heard somebody whisper, “Please adore me”
And when I looked to the moon had turned to gold

Blue Moon, now I’m no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

Song List


Blue Moon of Kentucky

Blue moon of Kentucky keep on shining
Shine on the one that’s gone and proved untrue
Blue moon of Kentucky keep on shining
Shine on the one that’s gone and left me blue

Well, it was on one moonlight night
Stars shinin’ bright
Whispered on high
Love’s sad goodbye

Blue moon of Kentucky keep on shining
Shine on the one that’s gone and said goodbye

Blueberry Hill

I found my thrill on Blueberry Hill
On Blueberry Hill when I found you

The moon stood still on Blueberry Hill
And lingered until my dreams came true

The wind in the willow played love’s sweet melody
But all of those vows we made were never to be

Tho’ we’re apart, you’re part of me still
For you were my thrill on Blueberry Hill

Blue Skies

Blue skies, smiling at me
Nothing but blue skies do I see
Bluebirds, singing a song

Never saw the sun shining so bright
Never saw things going so right
Noticing the days hurrying by
When you’re in love, my how they fly

Blue days, all of them gone
Nothing but blue skies from now on

I never saw the sun shining so bright
Never saw things going oh-so right
Noticing the days hurrying by
When you’re in love, my how they fly

Blue days, all of them gone
Nothing but blue skies from now on

Born to Lose

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 through
Born to lose and now I’m losing you

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

There’s no use to dream of happiness
All I see is only loneliness
All my life I’ve always been so blue
Born to lose and now I’m losing you

Born to lose and now I’m losing you

Bobby McGee

Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waitin’ for a train
Feelin’ nearly faded as my jeans
Bobby thumbed a diesel down just before it rained
Rode us all the way to New Orleans
I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red bandanna
I was playin’ soft while Bobby sang the blues
Windshield wipers slappin’ time
I was holdin’ Bobby’s hand in mine
We sang every song that driver knew

Freedom’s just another word for nothin’ left to lose
Nothin’ don’t mean nothin’ if it ain’t free
Feelin’ good was easy, Lord, when Bobby sang the blues
Feelin’ good was good enough for me
Good enough for me and Bobby McGee

From the Kentucky coal mines to the California sun
Bobby shared the secrets of my soul
Through all kinds of weather, through everything we done
Hey, Bobby’s body kept me from the cold
One day up near Salinas, Lord, I let him slip away
He’s lookin’ for that home and I hope he finds it
But I’d trade all my tomorrows
For one single yesterday
To be holdin’ Bobby’s body next to mine

Freedom’s just another word for nothin’ left to lose
Nothin’ don’t mean nothin’ if it ain’t free
Feelin’ good was easy, Lord, when Bobby sang the blues
Feelin’ good was good enough for me
Good enough for me and Bobby McGee

Brown-eyed Girl

Hey, where did we go days when the rains came
Down in the hollow, playin a new game
Laughing and a runnin, hey, hey, skipping and a jumpin
In the misty morning fog with our hearts a-thumpin and
You, my brown eyed girl. You, my brown-eyed girl

Whatever happened to Tuesday and so slow
Going down the old mine with a transistor radio
Standing in the sunlight laughing
hiding ’hind a rainbow’s wall
Slipping and sliding all along the waterfall with
You, my brown eyed girl. You, my brown-eyed girl

Do you remember when we used to sing
Sha la la la la la la la la la la ti da
Sha la la la la la la la la la la ti da La ti dah

So hard to find my way, now that I’m all on my own
I saw you just the other day. My, how you have grown
Cast my memory back there, Lord
Sometime I’m overcome thinkin ’bout
Making love in the green grass behind the stadium with
You, my brown eyed girl. You, my brown-eyed girl

Do you remember when we used to sing
Sha la la la la la la la la la la ti da
Sha la la la la la la la la la la ti da

Bye Bye Love

There goes my baby with someone new
She sure looks happy, I sure am blue
She was my baby till he stepped in
Goodbye to romance that might have been

Bye bye love, bye bye happiness
Hello loneliness, I think I’m gonna cry
Bye bye love, bye bye sweet caress
Hello, emptiness, I feel like I could die
Bye bye, my love, goodbye

I’m through with romance, I’m through with love
I’m through with counting the stars above
And here’s the reason that I’m so free
My lovin’ baby is through with me

Bye bye love, bye bye happiness
Hello loneliness, I think I’m gonna cry
Bye bye love, bye bye sweet caress
Hello, emptiness, I feel like I could die
Bye bye, my love, goodbye

Make my bed and light the light

Can’t Help Falling in Love

Wise men say only fools rush in
But I can’t help falling in love with you

Shall I stay? Would it be a sin
If I can’t help falling in love with you

Like a river flows, surely to the sea
Darling so it goes, some things are meant to be

Take my hand. Take my whole life too
For I can’t help falling in love with you

Like a river flows, surely to the sea
Darling so it goes, some things are meant to be

Take my hand. Take my whole life too
For I can’t help falling in love with you

For I can’t help falling in love with you

Can’t Buy Me Love

Can’t buy me love, love
Can’t buy me love

I’ll buy you a diamond ring, my friend
If it makes you feel all right

If it makes you feel all right
But I don’t care too much for money
Money can’t buy me love

I’ll give you all I’ve got to give
If you say you love me, too

But what I’ve got I’ll give to you

Can’t buy me love
Everybody tells me so
Can’t buy me love
No, no, no, no

Say you don’t need no diamond rings
And I’ll be satisfied
Tell me that you want the kind of things
That money just can’t buy
I don’t care too much for money
Money can’t buy me love

Can’t buy me love
Everybody tells me so
Can’t buy me love
No, no, no, no

Say you don’t need no diamond rings
And I’ll be satisfied
Tell me that you want the kind of things
That money just can’t buy
I don’t care too much for money
Money can’t buy me love

Can’t buy me love, love
Can’t buy me love, oh

Catch a Falling Star

Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket
Never let it fade away
Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket
Save it for a rainy day

For love may come and tap you on the shoulder
Some starless night
Just in case you feel you wanna hold her
You’ll have a pocket full of starlight

Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket
Never let it fade away
Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket
Save it for a rainy day

For when your troubles start multiplying
And they just might
It’s easy to forget them without trying
With just a pocket full of starlight

Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket
Never let it fade away
Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket
Save it for a rainy day

Catch the Wind

In the chilly hours and minutes
Of uncertainty, I want to be
In the warm hold of your loving mind
To feel you all around me
And to take your hand along the sand
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind

When sundown pales the sky
I want to hide a while behind your smile
And everywhere I’d look your eyes I’d find
For me to love you now
Would be the sweetest thing ’twould make me sing
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind

Dee dee, dee dee... dee dee dee dee
Dee dee, dee dee... dee dee dee dee
Dee dee dee...

When rain has hung the leaves with tears
I want you near to kill my fears
To help me to leave all my blues behind
For standing in your heart
Is where I want to be and long to be
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind

Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind

Clementine

In a cavern, in a canyon, excavating for a mine
Dwelt a miner forty-niner and his daughter Clementine

Oh my darling, oh my darling, oh my darling, Clementine!
You are lost and gone forever. Dreadful sorry, Clementine

Light she was and like a fairy, and her shoes were number nine
Herring boxes, without topses, sandals were for Clementine

Oh my darling, oh my darling, oh my darling, Clementine!
You are lost and gone forever. Dreadful sorry, Clementine

Drove she ducklings to the water every morning just at nine
Hit her foot against a splinter, fell into the foaming brine

Oh my darling, oh my darling, oh my darling, Clementine!
You are lost and gone forever. Dreadful sorry, Clementine

Ruby lips above the water, blowing bubbles, soft and fine
But alas, I was no swimmer, so I lost my Clementine

Oh my darling, oh my darling, oh my darling, Clementine!
You are lost and gone forever. Dreadful sorry, Clementine

And the miner forty-niner soon began to peak and pine
Thought he oughta join his daughter. Now he’s left with Clementine

Oh my darling, oh my darling, oh my darling, Clementine!
You are lost and gone forever. Dreadful sorry, Clementine

There’s a churchyard on the hillside, where the flowers grow and twine
There grow roses, ’mongst the posies fertilized by Clementine

Oh my darling, oh my darling, oh my darling, Clementine!
You are lost and gone forever. Dreadful sorry, Clementine

In my dreams she still doth haunt me, robed in garlands soaked in brine
Though in life I used to hug her, now she’s dead, I draw the line

Oh my darling, oh my darling, oh my darling, Clementine!
You are lost and gone forever. Dreadful sorry, Clementine

Cool Water

All day I’ve faced the barren waste
Without the taste of water, cool water
Ole Dan and I, with throats burned dry
And souls that cry for water, cool, clear water

The nights are cool and I’m a fool
Each star’s a pool of water, cool water
And with the dawn, I’ll wake and yawn
And carry on to water, cool, clear water

Keep a-movin’ Dan. Don’t you listen to him Dan
He’s the devil, not a man
And he spreads the burnin’ sand with water
Say, Dan can’t you see that big green tree
Where the water’s runnin’ free
It’s waiting there for you and me?

The shadows sway and seem to say
Tonight we pray for water, cool water
And way up there, He’ll hear our prayer
And show us where there’s water, cool, clear water

Keep a-movin’ Dan. Don’t you listen to him Dan
He’s the devil, not a man
And he spreads the burnin’ sand with water
Say, Dan can’t you see that big green tree
Where the water’s runnin’ free
It’s waiting there for you and me?

Dan’s feet are sore he’s yearnin’ for
Just one thing more than water, cool water
Like me I guess he’d like to rest
Where there’s no quest for water, cool, clear water

Cool, clear water

Crazy, I’m crazy for feelin’ so lonely
I’m crazy, crazy for feelin’ so blue
I knew you’d love me as long as you wanted
And then someday you’d leave me for somebody new

Worry, why should I let myself worry?
Wondrin’ what in the world did I do

Oh, crazy for thinkin’ that my love could hold you
I’m crazy for tryin’ and crazy for cryin’

Oh, crazy for thinkin’ that my love could hold you

Crying

I was alright for a while, I could smile for a while
But I saw you last night, you held my hand so tight
As you stopped to say, “Hello.”
Oh, you wished me well, you couldn’t tell that I’d been

Crying over you, crying over you
When you said, “So long,” left me standing all alone
Alone and crying, crying, crying, crying
It’s hard to understand, but the touch of your hand
Can start me crying

I thought that I was over you,
but it’s true, oh, so true
I love you even more than I did before
But darling, what can I do?
For you don’t love me and I’ll always be

Crying over you, crying over you
Yes, now you’re gone and from this moment on
I’ll be crying, crying, crying, crying
Yeah, crying, crying, o-over you

Crying Time

Oh, it’s cryin’ time again, you’re gonna leave me
I can see that far away look in your eyes
I can tell by the way you hold me darlin’
That it won’t be long before it’s cryin’ time

Now they say that absence makes the heart grow fonder (fonder)
And that tears are only rain to make love grow
Well my love for you could never grow no stronger (stronger)
If I lived to be a hundred years old

Oh, it’s cryin’ time again, you’re gonna leave me
I can see that far away look in your eyes
I can tell by the way you hold me darlin’
That it won’t be long before it’s cryin’ time

Now you say you’ve found someone that you love better (better)
That’s the way it’s happened every time before
And as sure as the sun comes up tomorrow (’morrow)
Cryin’ time will start when you walk out the door

Oh, it’s cryin’ time again, you’re gonna leave me
I can see that far away look in your eyes
I can tell by the way you hold me darlin’
That it won’t be long before it’s cryin’ time

No, it won’t be long before it’s cryin’ time

Cupid, draw back your bow and let your arrow go
Straight to my lover’s heart for, for me
Cupid, please hear my cry and let your arrow fly
Straight to my lover’s heart for me

Now, I don’t mean to bother you, but I’m in distress
There’s danger of me losing all of my happiness
For I love a girl who doesn’t know I exist
And this you can fix

Cupid, draw back your bow and let your arrow go
Straight to my lover’s heart for, for me
Cupid, please hear my cry and let your arrow fly
Straight to my lover’s heart for me

Now, Cupid, if your arrow makes her love strong for me
I promise I will love her until eternity
I know between the two of us her heart we can steal
Help me if you will

Cupid, draw back your bow and let your arrow go
Straight to my lover’s heart for, for me
Cupid, please hear my cry and let your arrow fly
Straight to my lover’s heart for me

Now, Cupid, don’t you hear me
Callin’ you, I need you, Cupid

Daisy Bell (Bicycle Built for Two)

Daisy, Daisy
Give me your answer true
I’m half crazy all for the love of you
It won’t be a stylish marriage
I can’t afford a carriage
But you’ll look sweet upon the seat
Of a bicycle built for two

Chester! Chester! here is my answer true
I’m not crazy all for the love of you
It must be a stylish marriage
You must afford a carriage
For I’ll be damned if I’ll be crammed
On a bicycle built for two

Dancin’ in the Streets

Callin’ out around the world
Are you ready for a brand new beat?
Summer’s here and the time is right
For dancing in the streets
They’re dancing in Chicago (dancing in the street)
Down in New Orleans (dancing in the street)
In New York City (dancing in the street)

All we need is music, sweet music
There’ll be music everywhere
There’ll be swinging, swaying and records playing
And dancing in the streets

Oh, it doesn’t matter what you wear
Just as long as you are there
Come on, every guy grab a girl
Everywhere around the world
There’ll be dancing. They’re dancing in the street

This is an invitation across the nation
A chance for folks to meet
There’ll be laughing and singing and music swinging
Dancing in the streets
Philadelphia, P-A (dancing in the street)
Baltimore and D-C now (dancing in the street)
Don’t forget the Motor City (dancing in the street)

All we need is music, sweet music
There’ll be music everywhere (everywhere)
There’ll be swinging, swaying and record playing
And dancing in the street

Oh, it doesn’t matter what you wear
Just as long as you are there
Come on, every guy grab a girl
Everywhere around the world
There’ll be dancing. They’re dancing in the street

Way down in L. A. Every day
They’re dancing in the street

Danny Boy

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 flowers are dying
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
Tis’ I’ll be there in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny Boy, oh Danny Boy, I love you so

But when you come and all the flowers are dying
If I am dead, and 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 dreams will warmer sweeter be
If you’ll not fail to tell me that you love me
I’ll simply sleep in peace until you come to me

Deep in the Heart of Texas

The stars at night are big and bright
Deep in the heart of Texas
The prairie sky is wide and high
Deep in the heart of Texas

The sage in bloom is like perfume
Deep in the heart of Texas
Reminds me of the one I love
Deep in the heart of Texas

The cowboys cry ki-yip-pie-yi
Deep in the heart of Texas
The rabbits rush around the brush
Deep in the heart of Texas

The coyotes wail along the trail
Deep in the heart of Texas
The doggies bawl and bawl and bawl
Deep in the heart of Texas

Deep Purple

When the deep purple falls over sleepy garden walls
And the stars begin to flicker in the sky
Through the mist of a memory
You wander back to me
Breathing my name with a sigh

In the still of the night, once again I hold you tight
Though you’re gone, your love lives on when moonlight beams
And as long as my heart will beat
Lover, we’ll always meet
Here in my deep purple dreams

Singin’ do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do
Poppin’ her fingers and a shufflin’ her feet

Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavor (On The Bedpost Over Night)

Oh me oh my oh you. Whatever shall I do?
Hallelujah, the question is peculiar
I’d give a lot of dough, if only I could know
The answer to my question, is it yes or is it no?

Does your chewing gum lose its flavor
On the bedpost overnight?
If your mother says don’t chew it
Do you swallow it in spite?
Can you catch it on your tonsils
Can you heave it left and right?
Does your chewing gum lose its flavor
On the bedpost overnight?

Here comes a blushing bride. The groom is by her side
Up to the altar, just as steady as Gibraltar
The groom has got the ring, and it’s such a pretty thing
But as he slips it on her finger, the choir begins to sing:

Does your chewing gum lose its flavor
On the bedpost overnight?
If your mother says don’t chew it
Do you swallow it in spite?
Can you catch it on your tonsils
Can you heave it left and right?
Does your chewing gum lose its flavor
On the bedpost overnight?

Now the nation rise as one to send their wanted son
Up to the White House
Yes, the nation’s only White House
To voice their discontent unto the President

The bonny burning question, what has swept this continent?
If tin whistles are made of tin, what do they make fog horns out of?
Boom boom

Does your chewing gum lose its flavor
On the bedpost overnight?
If your mother says don’t chew it
Do you swallow it in spite?
Can you catch it on your tonsils
Can you heave it left and right?
Does your chewing gum lose its flavor
On the bedpost overnight?
On the bedpost overnight

Hello there, I love you
And the one who holds you tight!
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday, Friday, Sat’day night

On the bedpost overnight

A dollar is a dollar and a dime is a dime
He’d sing another chorus
But he hasn’t got the time

On the bedpost overnight, yeah!

One night old granny Stead stuck gum all round her bed
Elastic rollers, all that chewing without molars
A prowler in the night got stuck on gran’s bed, right?
Old granny leapt up in the air
Shouting out, “Tonight’s the night!”

Does your chewing gum lose its sticky
On the bedpost overnight?
Does it go all hard, fall on the floor
And look a nasty sight?
Can you bend it like a fish hook
Just in case you get a bite?
Does your chewing gum lose its flavor
On the bedpost overnight?

The convict out on bail said put me back in jail
Harrang de knocker, he must be of his rocker
Then back in his old cell, the reason he did tell
His gum was stuck above his bed
And his false teeth as well

Does your chewing gum have more uses
Than it says upon the pack
Can you stretch it out much farther
Than the man upon the rack?
Can you lend it to your brother
And expect to get it back?
Does your chewing gum lose its flavor
When your lips refuse to smack?

When on our honeymoon, in our hotel room
It was heaven. We slept till half eleven
Found a waiter next to me, embarrassed as could be
He said, “I’ve been stuck to your bedpost
It’s your early morning tea”

Does your chewing gum lose its flavor
On the bedpost overnight?
If your mother says don’t chew it
Do you swallow it in spite?
Can you catch it on your tonsils
Can you heave it left and right?
Does your chewing gum lose its flavor
On the bedpost overnight?

Oh, Donna, oh, Donna

I had a girl, Donna was her name
Since she left me, I’ve never been the same

All by myself, to wander and roam

Don’t Be Cruel

You know I can be found
Sittin’ home all alone
If you don’t come around
At least please telephone
Don’t be cruel to a heart that’s true

Baby, 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 lover
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
Let us both say, “I do.”
Then you’ll know you have me
And I’ll know that I have you
Don’t be cruel to a heart that’s true

I don’t want no other lover
Baby, it’s just you I’m thinking of

Don’t be cruel to a heart that’s true

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

Thought I’d visit the club
Got as far as the door
Then they asked me about you
Don’t get around much anymore

Darling I guess my mind is more at ease
But nevertheless why stir up memories

Been invited on dates
Might have gone but what for
Awfully different without you
Don’t get around much anymore

Song List


Don’t Fence Me In

Oh, give me land, lots of land under starry skies above
Don’t fence me in
Let me ride through the wide open country that I love
Don’t fence me in
Let me be by myself in the evenin’ breeze
And listen to the murmur of the cottonwood trees
Send me off forever but I ask you please
Don’t fence me in

Just turn me loose, let me straddle my old saddle
Underneath the western skies
On my Cayuse, let me wander over yonder
Till I see the mountains rise

I want to ride to the ridge where the west commences
And gaze at the moon till I lose my senses
And I can’t look at hovels and I can’t stand fences
Don’t fence me in

Don’t fence me in

Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right

Well, it ain’t no use to sit and wonder why, babe
If you don’t know by now
And it ain’t no use to sit and wonder why, babe
It’ll never do somehow
When your rooster crows at the break of dawn
Look out your window, and I’ll be gone
You’re the reason I’m a-traveling on
But don’t think twice, it’s all right
And It ain’t no use in turnin on your light, babe
The light I never knowed
And it ain’t no use in turnin on your light, babe
I’m on the dark side of the road
But I wish there was somethin’ you would do or say
To try and make me change my mind and stay
But we never did too much talking anyway
But don’t think twice, it’s all right

No It ain’t no use in callin’ out my name, gal
Like you never done before
And it ain’t no use in callin’ out my name, gal
I can’t hear you any more
I’m a-thinking and a-wonderin’ walking down the road
I once loved a woman, a child I am told
I gave her my heart but she wanted my soul
But don’t think twice, it’s all right

So long honey, babe
Where I’m bound, I can’t tell
Goodbye is too good a word, babe
So I’ll just say fare thee well
I ain’t a-saying you treated me unkind
You could have done better, but I don’t mind
You just kinda wasted my precious time
But don’t think twice, it’s all right

Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree (With Anyone Else But Me)

I wrote my mother. I wrote my father
And now I’m writing you too
I’m sure of mother. I’m sure of father
Now I wanna be sure of you

Don’t sit under the apple tree with anyone else but me
Anyone else but me, anyone else but me. No! No! No!
Don’t sit under the apple tree with anyone else but me
Till I come marching home

Don’t go walkin down lover’s lane with anyone else but me
Anyone else but me, anyone else but me. No! No! No!
Don’t go walkin down lover’s lane with anyone else but me
Till I come marchin home

I just got word from a guy who heard from the guy next door to me
The girl he met just loves to pet and it fits you to a T
So don’t sit under the apple tree with anyone else but me
Till I come marchin home

Don’t give out with those lips of yours to anyone else but me
Anyone else but me, anyone else but me. No! No! No!
Watch the girls on the foreign shores, you’ll have to report to me
When you come marchin home

Don’t hold anyone on your knee. You better be true to me
You better be true to me. You better be true to me. No! No! No!
Don’t hold anyone on your knee. You’re getting the third degree
When you come marchin home

You’re on own where there is no phone, and I can’t keep tab on you
Be fair to me, I’ll guarantee this is one thing that I’ll do
I won’t sit under the apple tree with anyone else but you
Till you come marchin home

Down on the Corner

Early in the evenin’, just about supper time
Over by the courthouse, they’re starting to unwind
Four kids on the corner tryin to bring you up
Willy picks a tune out and he blows it on the harp

Down on the corner, out in the street
Willy and the Poorboys are playin’
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

Rooster hits the washboard and people just got to smile
Blinky, thumps the gut bass and solos for a while
Poorboy twangs the rhythm out on his kalamazoo
Willy goes into a dance and doubles on kazoo

Down on the corner, out in the street
Willy and the Poorboys are playin’
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

You don’t need a penny just to hang around
But if you’ve got a nickel, won’t you lay your money down?
Over on the corner there’s a happy noise
People come from all around to watch the magic boy

Down on the corner, out in the street
Willy and the Poorboys are playin’
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

A girl to hold in my arms and feel the magic of her charms

Yet I look for the light in the pouring rain
You know that’s a game that I hate to lose

I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away

Give me the beat, boy, to free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away

You know a melody can move me
And when I’m feelin blue
The guitar’ comin through to soothe me

Thanks for the joy that you’ve given me
I want you to know I believe in your song
Rhythm and rhyme and harmony
You help me along makin me strong

El Paso

Out in the West Texas town of El Paso
I fell in love with a Mexican girl
Nighttime would find me in Rose’s Cantina
Music would play and Felina would whirl

Blacker than night were the eyes of Felina
Wicked and evil while casting a spell
My love was deep for this Mexican maiden
I was in love, but in vain I could tell

One night a wild young cowboy came in
Wild as the West Texas wind
Dashing and daring, a drink he was sharing
With wicked Felina, the girl that I love

So in anger I challenged his right for the love of this maiden
Down went his hand for the gun that he wore
My challenge was answered, in less than a heartbeat
The handsome young stranger lay dead on the floor

Just for a moment, I stood there in silence
Shocked by the foul, evil deed I had done
Many thoughts ran through my mind as I stood there
I had but one chance and that was to run

Out through the back door of Rose’s I ran
Out where the horses were tied
I caught a good one. It looked like he could run
Up on his back and away I did ride

Just as fast as I could from the West Texas town of El Paso
Out through the badlands of New Mexico

Back in El Paso my life would be worthless
Everything’s gone in life nothing is left
It’s been so long since I’ve seen the young maiden
My love is stronger than my fear of death

I saddled up and away I did go
Riding alone in the dark
Maybe tomorrow a bullet may find me
Tonight nothing’s worse than this pain in my heart

And at last here I am on the hill overlooking El Paso
I can see Rose’s Cantina below
My love is strong and it pushes me onward
Down off the hill to Felina I go

Off to my right I see five mounted cowboys
Off to my left ride a dozen or more
Shouting and shooting, I can’t let them catch me
I have to make it to Rose’s back door

Something is dreadfully wrong for I feel
A deep burning pain in my side
Though I an trying to stay in the saddle
I’m getting weary, unable to ride

But my love for Felina is strong and I rise where I’ve fallen
Though I am weary, I can’t stop to rest
I see the white puff of smoke from the rifle
I feel the bullet go deep in my chest

From out of nowhere, Felina has found me
Kissing my cheek as she kneels by my side
Cradled by two loving arms that I’ll die for
One little kiss and Felina good-bye

Five Foot Two

Five foot two eyes of blue
But oh what those five foot could do
Has anybody seen my gal?

Turned up nose and turned down hose
Never had another beau
Has anybody seen my gal?

Now if you run into five foot two covered with fur
Diamond ring and all those things
Bet your life it isn’t her

Could she coo could she woo
Could she could she could she coo
Has anybody seen my gal?

Fly Me to the Moon

Fly me to the moon, let me play among the stars
Let me see what love is like on Jupiter and Mars

Fill my heart with song, and let me sing forever more
You are all I long for all I worship and adore
In other words, please be true
In other words, I love you

Fill my heart with song, and let me sing forever more
You are all I long for all I worship and adore
In other words, please be true

In other words, In other words, I love you

Folsom Prison Blues

I hear the train a coming, it’s rolling round the bend
And I ain’t seen the sunshine since I don’t know when
I’m stuck at Folsom Prison and time keeps dragging on
But that train keeps rolling on down to San Antone

When I was just a baby, my mama told me, “Son
Always be a good boy, don’t ever play with guns”
But I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die
When I hear that whistle blowing
I hang my head and cry

I bet there’s rich folks eating in a fancy dining car
They’re probably drinking coffee and smoking big cigars
But I know I had it coming, I know I can’t be free
But those people keep a moving, and that’s what tortures me

Well if they freed me from this prison, if that railroad train was mine
I bet I’d move on a little farther down the line
Far from Folsom Prison, that’s where I want to stay
And I’d let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away

Song List


For Me and My Gal

The bells are ringing for me and my gal
The birds are singing for me and my gal
Everybody’s been knowing
To a wedding we’re going
And for weeks they’ve been sewing
Every Susie and Sal

They’re congregating for me and my gal
The parson’s waiting for me and my gal
And sometime I’m gonna build a little home for two
Or three or four or more
In love land for me and my gal

The whole day through
Just an old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind

I said, Georgia, Georgia
A song of you
Comes as sweet and clear
As moonlight through the pines

Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back to you

Georgia, oh Georgia
No peace I find
Just an old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind

Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back to you

Georgia, oh Georgia
No peace I find
Just an old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind

Ghost Riders in the Sky

An old cowboy went riding out one dark and windy day
Upon a ridge he rested as he went along his way
When all at once a mighty herd of red eyed cows he saw
A-plowing through the ragged sky — and up the cloudy draw

Their brands were still on fire and their hooves were made of steel
Their horns were black and shiny, and their hot breath he could feel
A bolt of fear went through him as they thundered through the sky
For he saw the riders coming hard — and he heard their mournful cry

Yippie yi ooh! Yippie yi ay!
Ghost riders in the sky

Their faces gaunt, their eyes were blurred, their shirts all soaked with sweat
He’s riding hard to catch that herd, but he ain’t caught ’em yet
’Cause they’ve got to ride forever on that range up in the sky
On horses snorting fire — as they ride on, hear their cry

Yippie yi ooh! Yippie yi ay!
Ghost riders in the sky

As the riders loped on by him, he heard one call his name
“If you want to save your soul from hell a-riding on our range
“Then cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride
“Trying to catch the devil’s herd — across these endless skies”

Yippie yi ooh! Yippie yi ay!
Ghost riders in the sky
Ghost riders in the sky
Ghost riders in the sky

Girl from the North Country

If you’re travelin’ in the north country fair
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine

If you go when the snowflakes storm
When the rivers freeze and summer ends
Please see if she’s wearing a coat so warm
To keep her from the howlin’ winds

Please see for me if her hair hangs long
If it rolls and flows all down her breast
Please see for me if her hair hangs long
For that’s the way I remember her best

I’m a-wonderin’ if she remembers me at all
Many times I’ve often prayed
In the darkness of my night
In the brightness of my day

So, if you’re travelin’ in the north country fair
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine

The Glory of Love

You’ve got to give a little, take a little
And let your poor heart break a little
That’s the story of, that’s the glory of love

You’ve got to laugh a little, cry a little
Until the clouds roll by a little
That’s the story of, that’s the glory of love

As long as there’s the two of us
We’ve got the world and all it’s charms
And when the world is through with us
We’ve got each other’s arms

You’ve got to win a little, lose a little
Yes, and always have the blues a little
That’s the story of, that’s the glory of love

That’s the story of, that’s the glory of
That’s the story of, that’s the glory of
That’s the story of, that’s the glory of love

Good Luck Charm

Don’t want a four leaf clover
Don’t want an old horse shoe
Want your kiss ’cause I just can’t miss
With a good luck charm like you

Come on and be my little good luck charm
Uh-huh huh, you sweet delight
I want a good luck charm a-hanging on my arm
To have, to have, to hold, to hold tonight

Don’t want a silver dollar
Rabbit’s foot on a string
The happiness in your warm caress
No rabbit’s foot can bring

Come on and be my little good luck charm
Uh-huh huh, you sweet delight
I want a good luck charm a-hanging on my arm
To have, to have, to hold, to hold tonight

If I found a lucky penny
I’d toss it across the bay
Your love is worth all the gold on earth
No wonder that I say

Come on and be my little good luck charm
Uh-huh huh, you sweet delight
I want a good luck charm a-hanging on my arm
To have, to have, to hold, to hold tonight

Goodnight, Irene

Last Saturday night I got married
Me and my wife settled down
Now me and my love are parted
I’m gonna take another stroll downtown

Irene, goodnight, Irene, goodnight
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I’ll see you in my dreams

Sometimes I live in the country
Sometimes I live in the town
Sometimes I have a great notion
To jump In the river and drown

Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene

Ramblin’ stop your gamblin’
Stop stayin’ out late at night
Go home to your wife and your family
Sit down by the fireside bright

I asked your mother to marry you
She told me you was too young
I wish I’d never seen your face
I’m sorry I was ever born

Irene, goodnight, Irene, goodnight
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I’ll see you in my dreams

I love Irene, God knows I do
Love her till the sea runs dry
If Irene turns her back on me
I’m gonna take morphine and die

Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I’ll see you in my dreams

Greensleeves

Alas, my love, you do me wrong
To cast me off discourteously
For I have loved you well and long
Delighting in your company

Greensleeves was all my joy
Greensleeves was my delight
Greensleeves was my heart of gold
And who but my Lady Greensleeves

Alas, my love, that you should own
A heart of wanton vanity
So must I meditate alone
Upon your insincerity

Greensleeves was all my joy
Greensleeves was my delight
Greensleeves was my heart of gold
And who but my Lady Greensleeves

Your vows you’ve broken, like my heart
Oh, why did you so enrapture me?
Now I remain in a world apart
But my heart remains in captivity

Greensleeves was all my joy
Greensleeves was my delight
Greensleeves was my heart of gold
And who but my Lady Greensleeves

Guantanamera

Guantanamera, guajira guantanamera
Guantanamera, guajira guantanamera

Yo soy un hombre sincero
De donde crece la palma
Y antes de morirme, quiero
Echar mis versos del alma

Guantanamera, guajira guantanamera
Guantanamera, guajira guantanamera

Mi verso es un verde claro
Y de un carmín encendido
Mi verso es un ciervo herido
Que busca en el monte amparo

Guantanamera, guajira guantanamera
Guantanamera, guajira guantanamera

Cultivo una rosa blanca
En julio como en enero
Para el amigo sincero
Que me da su mano franca

Guantanamera, guajira guantanamera
Guantanamera, guajira guantanamera

Y para el cruel que me arranca
El corazón con que vivo
Cardo ni ortiga cultivo
Cultivo la rosa blanca

Guantanamera, guajira guantanamera
Guantanamera, guajira guantanamera

Con los pobres de la tierra
Quiero yo mi suerte echar
Con los pobres de la tierra
Quiero yo mi suerte echar
El arroyo de la sierra
Me complace más que el mar

Guantanamera, guajira guantanamera

Song List



Hallelujah

I heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth
The minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelu-u-jah

Your faith was strong, but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelu-u-jah

Maybe there’s a God above
But all I ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
It’s not a cry you hear tonight
It’s not some pilgrim who claims to have seen the light
It’s a cold and very broken hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelu-u-jah

You say I took the name in vain
I don’t even know the name
But if I did, well really, what’s it to you?
There’s a blaze of light in every word
It doesn’t matter which you heard
The holy or the broken hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelu-u-jah

Maybe I’ve been here before
I know this room, I’ve walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you
I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
Listen, love is not a victory march
No, it’s a cold it’s a very lonely hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelu-u-jah

There was a time you let me know
What’s really going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?
I remember when I moved in you
The holy dove, she was moving too
And every breath we drew was hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelu-u-jah

I did my best, it wasn’t much
I couldn’t feel, so I learned to touch
I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come all this way to fool you
And even though it all went wrong
I’ll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelu-u-jah

Hard Times

Let us pause in life’s pleasures and count it’s many tears
While we all sup sorrow with the poor
There’s a song that will linger forever in our ears
Oh, hard times come again no more

While we seek mirth and beauty and music light and gay
There are frail forms fainting at the door
Though their voices are silent, their pleading looks will say
Oh, hard times come again no more

Tis the song, the sigh of the weary
Hard times, hard times, come again no more
Many days you have lingered around my cabin door
Oh, hard times come again no more

There’s a pale sorrow maiden who toils her life away
With a worn heart whose better days are o’er
Though her voice would be merry, ’tis sighing all the day
Oh, hard times come again no more

Tis the song, the sigh of the weary
Hard times, hard times, come again no more
Many days you have lingered around my cabin door
Oh, hard times come again no more

Tis a sigh that is wafted across the troubled wave
Tis a wail that is heard upon the shore
Tis a dirge that is murmured around the lowly grave
Oh, hard times come again no more

Tis the song, the sigh of the weary
Hard times, hard times, come again no more
Many days you have lingered around my cabin door
Oh, hard times come again no more

Harvest Moon

Come a little bit closer
Hear what I have to say
Just like children sleepin’
We could dream this night away

But there’s a full moon risin’
Let’s go dancin’ in the light
We know where the music’s playin’
Let’s go out and feel the night

Because I’m still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I’m still in love with you
On this harvest moon

When we were strangers
I watched you from afar
When we were lovers
I loved you with all my heart

But now it’s gettin’ late
And the moon is climbin’ high
I want to celebrate
See it shinin’ in your eye

Because I’m still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I’m still in love with you
On this harvest moon

Have You Ever Seen the Rain?

Someone told me long ago
There’s a calm before the storm
I know. It’s been comin’ for some time
When it’s over, so they say
It’ll rain a sunny day
I know, shinin’ down like water

I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain
I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain
Comin’ down a sunny day?

Yesterday and days before
Sun is cold and rain is hard
I know, been that way for all my time
Till forever, on it goes
Through the circle, fast and slow
I know, it can’t stop, I wonder

I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain
I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain
Comin’ down a sunny day?

He Stopped Loving Her Today

He said, “I’ll love you till I die”
She told him you’ll forget in time
As the years went slowly by
She still preyed upon his mind

He kept her picture on his wall
Went half crazy now and then
He still loved her through it all
Hoping she’d come back again

Kept some letters by his bed
Dated nineteen-sixty-two
He had underlined in red
Every single I love you

I went to see him just today
Oh, but I didn’t see no tears
All dressed up to go away
First time I’d seen him smile in years

He stopped loving her today
They placed a wreath upon his door
And soon they’ll carry him away
He stopped loving her today

You know she came to see him one last time
Oh and we all wondered if she would
And it kept running through my mind
This time he’s over her for good

He stopped loving her today
They placed a wreath upon his door
And soon they’ll carry him away
He stopped loving her today

He’s got the little bitty baby in his hands...

Hello, Mary Lou

You passed me by one sunny day
Flashed those big brown eyes my way
And, oo, I wanted you forever more
Now I’m not one that gets around
I swear my feet stuck to the ground
And though I never did meet you before

I said “Hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart
Sweet Mary Lou, I’m so in love with you
I knew Mary Lou we’d never part
So Hello, Mary Lou, goodbye heart”

I saw your lips I heard your voice
Believe me I just had no choice
Wild horses couldn’t make me stay away
I thought about a moonlit night
My arms about good an’ tight
That’s all I had to see for me to say

I said “Hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart
Sweet Mary Lou, I’m so in love with you
I knew Mary Lou we’d never part
So Hello, Mary Lou, goodbye heart”

Hello, Mary Lou, goodbye heart
Hello, Mary Lou, goodbye heart

Help Me Make It Through the Night

Take the ribbon from your hair
Shake it loose and let it fall
Layin’ soft upon my skin

Home on the Range

Oh, give me a home where the buffalo roam
And the deer and the antelope play
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word
And the skies are not cloudy all day

Home, home on the range
Where the deer and the antelope play
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word
And the skies are not cloudy all day

How often at night, when the heavens are bright
With the light from the glittering stars
Have I stood there amazed and asked as I gazed
If their glory exceeds that of ours

Home, home on the range
Where the deer and the antelope play
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word
And the skies are not cloudy all day

How Much Is that Doggie in the Window

How much is that doggie in the window? (bark)
The one with the waggily tail
How much is that doggie in the window? (bark)
I do hope that dog is for sale

I must take a trip to California
And leave my poor sweetheart alone
If he has a dog, he won’t be lonesome
And the doggie will have a good home

How much is that doggie in the window?
The one with the waggily tail
How much is that doggie in the window?
I do hope that dog is for sale

I read in the papers there are robbers
With flashlights that shine in the dark
If he has a doggie to protect him
He’ll scare them away with one bark

I don’t want a bunny or a kitty
I don’t want a parrot that talks
I don’t want a bowl of little fishies
You can’t take a goldfish for a walk

How much is that doggie in the window? (bark)
The one with the waggily tail
How much is that doggie in the window? (bark)
I do hope that dog is
I do hope that dog is
I do hope that dog is for sale

I Always Get Lucky With You

I’ve had good luck, and bad luck
I’ve had good luck, and bad luck
And no luck, it’s true
But I always get lucky with you

I’ve been turned on, and turned down
When the bars close at two
But I always get lucky with you

I keep two strikes against me
Most all of the time
And when it’s down to just a phone call
I’m minus a dime

There’s been good days, and bad days
But when the day is through
I always get lucky with you

I keep two strikes against me
Most all of the time
And when it’s down to just a phone call
I’m minus a dime

There’s been good days, and bad days
But when the day is through
I always get lucky with you

I always get lucky with you

I Can’t Help It (If I’m Still In Love With You)

Today I passed you on the street
And my heart fell at your feet
I can’t help it if I’m still in love with you
There was another by your side
And he looked so satisfied
I can’t help it if I’m still in love with you

A picture from the past came slowly stealing
As I brushed your arm and walked so close to you
Then suddenly I got that old time feeling
I can’t help it if I’m still in love with you

It’s hard to know another’s lips will kiss you
And hold you just the way I used to do
Oh, heaven only knows how much I miss you
I can’t help it if I’m still in love with you

I can’t help it if I’m still in love with you

I can’t stop loving you. I’ve made up my mind
To live in memory of the lonesome times
I can’t stop wanting you, it’s useless to say
So I’ll just live my life in dreams of yesterday

Those happy hours that we once knew
Though long ago, still make me blue
They say that time heals a broken heart
But time has stood still since we’ve been apart

I can’t stop loving you. I’ve made up my mind
To live in memory of the lonesome times
I can’t stop wanting you, it’s useless to say
So I’ll just live my life in dreams of yesterday

Song List


I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine

I dreamed I saw St. Augustine alive as you or me
Tearing through these quarters in the utmost misery
With a blanket underneath his arm and a coat of solid gold
Searching for the very souls, whom already have been sold

“Arise, arise,” he cried so loud with a voice without restraint
“Come out, ye gifted kings and queens and hear my sad complaint
“No martyr is among ye now whom you can call your own
“But go on your way accordingly and know you’re not alone.”

I dreamed I saw St. Augustine alive with fiery breath
And I dreamed I was amongst the ones that put him out to death
Oh, I awoke in anger so alone and terrified
I put my fingers against the glass and bowed my head and cried

Song List


I Fall to Pieces

I fall to pieces
Each time I see you again
I fall to pieces
How can I be just your friend?

You want me to act like we’ve never kissed
You want me to forget. Pretend we’ve never met
And I’ve tried and I’ve tried but I haven’t yet
You walk by and I fall to pieces

I fall to pieces
Each time someone speaks your name
I fall to pieces
Time only adds to the flame

You tell me to find someone else to love
Someone who loves me, too. The way you used to do
But each time I go out with someone new
You walk by and I fall to pieces

You walk by and I fall to pieces

Song List


I Heard It Through the Grapevine

Ooo, I bet you wonder how I knew
’Bout your plans to make me blue
With some other guy you knew before
Between the two of us guys, you know I love you more
It took me by surprise, I must say
When I found out yesterday
Don’t you know that I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Oh, I heard it through the grapevine
Oh, and just about to lose my mind, honey, honey, yeah
(I heard it through the grapevine, not much longer would you be my baby)

I know a man ain’t supposed to cry
But these tears I can’t hold inside
Losin’ you would end my life, you see
Cuz you mean that much to me
You could have told me yourself
That you love somebody else
Instead I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Oh, I heard it through the grapevine
And I’m just about to lose my mind, honey, honey, yeah
(I heard it through the grapevine, not much longer would you be my baby)

People say believe half of what you see
Son, and none of what you hear
But I can’t hide bein’ confused
If it’s true, please tell me, dear
Do you plan to let me go
For the other guy you loved before
Don’t you know, I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Baby, I heard it through the grapevine
Ooo, I’m just about to lose my mind, honey, honey, yeah
(I heard it through the grapevine, not much longer would you be my baby)

Honey, honey, I know that you’re lettin’ me go
(I heard it through the grapevine, not much longer would you be my baby)
I said, I heard it through the grapevine
Ooo, heard it through the grapevine

I Know an Old Lady

I know an old lady who swallowed a fly
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly
Perhaps she’ll die

I know an old lady who swallowed a spider
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly
Perhaps she’ll die

I know an old lady who swallowed a bird
Now that’s absurd to swallow a bird
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly
Perhaps she’ll die

I know an old lady who swallowed a cat
Imagine that, she swallowed a cat
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly
Perhaps she’ll die

I know an old lady who swallowed a dog
Oh, what a hog to swallow a dog
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly
Perhaps she’ll die

I know an old lady who swallowed a goat
She just opened her throat and swallowed a goat
She swallowed the goat to catch the dog
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly
Perhaps she’ll die

I know an old lady who swallowed a cow
I don’t know how she swallowed a cow
She swallowed the cow to catch the goat
She swallowed the goat to catch the dog
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly
Perhaps she’ll die

I know an old lady who swallowed a horse
She’s dead, of course

I Only Want to Be with You

I don’t know what it is that makes me love you so
I only know I never want to let you go
’Cause you started something, can’t you see
That ever since we met you’ve had a hold on me
I happens to be true, I only want to be with you

It doesn’t matter where you go or what you do
I want to spend each moment of the day with you
Look what has happened with just one kiss
I never knew that I could be in love like this
It’s crazy but it’s true, I only want to be with you

You stopped and smiled at me
Asked me if I’d care to dance
I fell into your open arms
I didn’t stand a chance

Now, listen, honey, I just want to be beside you everywhere
As long as we’re together, honey, I don’t care
’Cause you started something, can’t you see
That ever since we met you’ve had a hold on me
No matter what you do, I only want to be with you

You stopped and smiled at me
Asked me if I’d care to dance
I fell into your open arms
I didn’t stand a chance

Now hear me darling, I just want to be beside you everywhere
As long as we’re together, honey, I don’t care
’Cause you started something, can’t you see
That ever since we met you’ve had a hold on me
No matter what you do, I only want to be with you

I said, no matter, no matter what you do, I only want to be with you

I Saw Her Standing There

Well, she was just seventeen
You know what I mean
And the way she looked
Was way beyond compare
So how could I dance with another
Ooh, when I saw her standing there?

Well, she looked at me
And I, I could see
That before too long
I’d fall in love with her
She wouldn’t dance with another
Ooh, when I saw her standing there

Well, my heart went, "Boom"
When I crossed that room
And I held her hand in mine

Oh we danced through the night
And we held each other tight
And before too long
I fell in love with her
Now I’ll never dance with another
Ooh, since I saw her standing there

Well, my heart went, "Boom"
When I crossed that room
And I held her hand in mine

Oh, we danced through the night
And we held each other tight
And before too long
I fell in love with her
Now I’ll never dance with another
Oh, since I saw her standing there

Oh, since I saw her standing there
Yeah, well since I saw her standing there

Song List


I Second That Emotion

Maybe you’ll wanna give me kisses sweet
But only for one night and no repeat
And maybe you’ll go away and never call
And a taste of honey’s worse than none at all

Oh little girl, in that case I don’t want no part
I do believe that, that would only break my heart
Oh, but if you feel like lovin’ me. If you got the notion
I second that emotion
So, if you feel like lovin’ me. If you got the notion.
I second that emotion, Ooh

Maybe you think that love would tie you down
And you don’t have the time to hang around
Maybe you think that love was made for fools
And so it makes you wise to break the rules

Oh little girl, in that case I don’t want no part
I do believe that, that would only break my heart
Oh, but if you feel like lovin’ me. If you got the notion
I second that emotion
So, if you feel like lovin’ me. If you got the notion.
I second that emotion, Ooh

Oh, little girl, I second that emotion
Ooh little girl, I second that emotion

Song List


I Walk the Line

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you’re mine, I walk the line

I find it very, very easy to be true
I find myself alone when each day is through
Yes, I’ll admit that I’m a fool for you
Because you’re mine, I walk the line

As sure as night is dark and days is light
I keep you on my mind both day and night
And happiness I’ve known proves that it’s right
Because you’re mine, I walk the line

You’ve got way to keep me on your side
You give me cause for love that I can’t hide
For you I know I’d ’even try to turn the tide
Because you’re mine, I walk the line

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you’’e mine, I walk the line

I Want a Girl (Just Like the Girl)

I want a girl just like the girl that married dear old dad
She was a pearl and the only girl that Daddy ever had
A real old-fashioned girl with heart so true
One who loves nobody else but you
Oh, I want a girl just like the girl that married dear old Dad

Song List


I Want You

The guilty undertaker sighs
The lonesome organ grinder cries
The silver saxophones say I should refuse you
The cracked bells and washed-out horns
Blow into my face with scorn
But it’s not that way, I wasn’t born to lose you

I want you, I want you
I want you so bad. Honey, I want you

The drunken politician leaps
Upon the street where mothers weep
And the saviors who are fast asleep, they wait for you
And I wait for them to interrupt me
Drinking from my broken cup
And ask me to open up the gate for you

I want you, I want you
I want you so bad. Honey, I want you

Now all my fathers, they’ve gone down
True love they’ve been without it
But all their daughters put me down
’Cause I don’t think about it

Well, I return to the Queen of Spades
And talk with my chambermaid
She knows that I’m not afraid to look at her
She is good to me
And there’s nothing she doesn’t see
She knows where I’d like to be, but it doesn’t matter

I want you, I want you
I want you so bad. Honey, I want you

Now your dancing child with his Chinese suit
He spoke to me, I took his flute
No, I wasn’t very cute to him, was I?
But I did it, though, because he lied
Because he took you for a ride
And because time was on his side, and because I

I want you, I want you
I want you so bad. Honey, I want you

Song List


I Will

Who knows how long I’ve loved you
You know I love you still
Will I wait a lonely lifetime
If you want me to, I will

For if I ever saw you
I didn’t catch your name
But it never really mattered
I will always feel the same

Love you forever and forever
Love you with all my heart
Love you whenever we’re together
Love you when we’re apart

And when at last I find you
Your song will fill the air
Sing it loud so I can hear you
Make it easy to be near you
For the things you do endear you to me
Ah, You know I will. I will

Song List


I’ll Never Get Out of the World Alive

Now, you’re lookin’ at a man that’s gettin’ kinda mad
I had a lot a luck, but it’s all been bad
No matter how I struggle and strive
I’ll never get out of this world alive

My fishin’ pole’s broke, the creek is full of sand
My woman run away with another man
No matter how I struggle and strive
I’ll never get out of this world alive

My distant uncle passed away
And left me quite a batch
And I was livin’ high until the fatal day
A lawyer proved I wasn’t born, I was only hatched

Everything’s agin me and it’s got me down
If I jumped in the river I would probably drown
No matter how I struggle and strive
I’ll never get out of this world alive

These shabby shoes I’m wearin’ all the time
Is full of holes and nails
And brother, if I stepped on worn-out dime
I bet a nickel I could tell you if it was heads or tails

I’m not gonna worry wrinkles in my brow
’Cause nothin’s ever gonna be alright no-how
No matter how I struggle and strive
I’ll never get out of this world alive

Song List


I’m a Believer

I thought love was only true in fairy tales
Meant for someone else but not for me
Love was out to get me
That’s the way it seemed
Disappointment haunted all of my dreams

Then I saw her face, now I’m a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind
I’m in love, and I’m a believer
I couldn’t leave her if I tried

I thought love was more or less a giving thing
It seemed the more I gave the less I got oh yeah
What’s the use in tryin’
All you get is pain
When I wanted sunshine I got rain

Then I saw her face, now I’m a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind
I’m in love, and I’m a believer
I couldn’t leave her if I tried

Love was out to get me
That’s the way it seemed
Disappointment haunted all of my dreams

Then I saw her face, now I’m a believer
Not a trace, of doubt in my mind
I’m in love, I’m a believer
I couldn’t leave her if I tried

Then I saw her face, now I’m a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind
Now I’m a believer, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Now I’m a believer
Then I saw her face
Now I’m a believer
Not a trace, of doubt in my mind

I’m a Little Teapot

Polly, put the kettle on and we’ll all have tea
Grandma used to sing
Oh, since then our taste has changed in so many ways
Yet to the pot we cling

Oh, I’m a little teapot short and stout
Here is my handle, here is my spout
When I get all steamed up then I shout
Tip me over, pour me out

I’m an Old Cowhand from the Rio Grande

I’m an old cowhand from the Rio Grande
But my legs ain’t bowed and my cheeks ain’t tan
I’m a cowboy who never saw a cow
Never roped a steer ’cause I don’t know how
Sure ain’t a fixing to start in now
Yippie yi oh kai-ay, yippie yi oh kai-ay

I’m an old cowhand from the Rio Grande
And I learned to ride ’fore I learned to stand
I’m a riding fool who is up to date
I know every trail in the Lone Star State
’Cause I ride the range in a Ford V-8
Yippie yi oh kai-ay, yippie yi oh kai-ay

I’m an old cowhands from the Rio Grande
And I come to town just to hear the band
I know all the songs that the cowboys know
’Bout the big corral where the doggies go
I learned them all on the radio
Yippie yi oh kai-ay, yippie yi oh kai-ay

I’m Always Chasing Rainbows

I’m always chasing rainbows
Watching clouds drifting by
My schemes are just like all my dreams
Ending in the sky

Some fellows look and find the sunshine
I always look and find the rain
Some fellows make a winning sometime
I never even make a gain, believe me
I’m always chasing rainbows
Waiting to find a little bluebird in vain

Some fellows look and find the sunshine
I always look and find the rain
Some fellows make a winning sometime
I never even make a gain, believe me
I’m always chasing rainbows
Waiting to find a little bluebird in vain

I’m always chasing rainbows,
Waiting to find a little bluebird in vain
Waiting to find a little bluebird in vain

Then like my dreams, they fade and die
Fortune’s always hiding

Pretty bubbles in the air

They’re gonna knock me off my feet
A lotta kisses at the bottom, and I’ll be glad I’ve got ’em

I’m gonna smile and say, “I hope you’re feelin’ better”
And close “With love” the way you do

And make believe it came from you

I’m gonna sit right down and write myself a letter
And make believe it came, make believe it came
And make believe it came from you

I’m looking over a four leaf clover

I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry

Hear that lonesome whippoorwill
He sounds too blue to fly
The midnight train is whining low
I’m so lonesome I could cry

I’ve never seen a night so long
When time goes crawling by
The moon just went behind the clouds
To hide its face and cry

Did you ever see a robin weep
When leaves begin to die?
Like me, he’s lost the will to live
I’m so lonesome I could cry

The silence of a falling star
Lights up a purple sky
And as I wonder where you are
I’m so lonesome I could cry

I’m so lonesome I could cry

I’ve Been Working on the Railroad

I’ve been working on the railroad
All the live long day
I’ve been working on the railroad
Just to pass the time away
Can’t you hear the whistle blowing
Rise up so early in the morn
Can’t you hear the captain shouting
“Dinah, blow your horn!”

Dinah won’t you blow, Dinah won’t you blow
Dinah, won’t you blow your horn
Dinah, won’t you blow, Dinah, won’t you blow
Dinah, won’t you blow your horn

Someone’s in the kitchen with Dinah
Someone’s in the kitchen I know
Someone’s in the kitchen with Dinah
Strumming on the old banjo, and singing

Fee fie fiddly ai oh, fee fie fiddly ai oh
Fee fie fiddly ai oh, strumming on the old banjo

If I Fell

If I fell in love with you
Would you promise to be true
And help me understand
’Cause I’ve been in love before
And I found that love was more
Than just holding hands

If I give my heart to you
I must be sure
From the very start that you
Would love me more than her

If I trust in you oh please
Don’t run and hide
If I love you too oh please
Don’t hurt my pride like her

’Cause I couldn’t stand the pain
And I would be sad if our new love was in vain

So I hope you see that I
Would love to love you
And that she will cry
When she learns we are two

’Cause I couldn’t stand the pain
And I would be sad if our new love was in vain
So I hope you see that I
Would love to love you
And that she will cry
When she learns we are two
If I fell in love with you

If You Knew Susie (Like I Know Susie)

I have got a sweetie known as Susie
In the words of Shakespeare she’s a “wow"
Though all of you may know her, too
I’d like to shout right now

If you knew Susie, like I know Susie
Oh! Oh! Oh! What a girl
There’s none so classy as this fair lassie
Oh! Oh! Oh, my goodness, what a chassis

We went riding, she didn’t balk
From the country, I’m the one who had to walk
If you knew Susie, like I know Susie
Oh! Oh! What a girl!

If you knew Susie, like I know Susie
Oh! Oh! Oh! What a girl
There’s none so classy as this fair lassie
Oh! Oh! Oh, my goodness, what a chassis

At a party she’s meek and mild
But in a taxi, mother dear, come save your child
If you knew Susie, like I know Susie
Oh! Oh! What a girl!

If you knew Susie, like I know Susie
Oh! Oh! Oh! What a girl
She wears long tresses and nice tight dresses
Oh! Oh! What a future she possesses

I had a mustache and cute as a pup
Susie kissed me, and she burned the darn thing up
If you knew Susie, like I know Susie
Oh! Oh! What a girl!

Suzie has a perfect reputation
No one ever saw her on a spree
Nobody knows where Susie goes
Nobody knows but me

If you knew Susie, like I know Susie
Oh! Oh! Oh! What a girl
There’s none so classy as this fair lassie
Oh! Oh! Oh, my goodness, what a chassis

Out in public, how she can yawn
In a parlour, you would think the war was on
If you knew Susie, like I know Susie
Oh! Oh! What a girl!

If you knew Susie, like I know Susie
Oh! Oh! Oh! What a girl
She wears long tresses and nice tight dresses
Oh! Oh! What a future she possesses

She’ll spend Sunday praising the Lord
But on Monday, she’s as busy as a board
If you knew Susie, like I know Susie
Oh! Oh! What a girl!

If You Were the Only Girl in the World

If you were the only girl in the world
and I were the only boy
Nothing else would matter in the world today
We could go on loving in the same old way

A garden of Eden just made for two
With nothing to mar our joy
I would say such wonderful things to you
There would be such wonderful things to do
If you were the only girl in the world
and I were the only boy

Imagine

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace, you

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world, you

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

In the Jailhouse Now

I had a friend named Ramblin’ Bob
He used to steal, gamble, and rob
He thought he was the smartest guy around
Well, I found out last Monday
That Bob got locked up Sunday
They’ve got him in the jailhouse way downtown

He’s in the jailhouse now
He’s in the jailhouse now
Well, I tol’ him once or twice
To stop playin’ cards and shootin’ dice
He’s in the jailhouse now

Bob liked to play his poker
Pinochle, whist, and euchre
But shootin’ dice was his favorite game
Well, he got throwed in jail
With nobody to go his bail
The judge done said that he refused the fine

He’s in the jailhouse now
He’s in the jailhouse now
Well, I tol’ him once or twice
To stop playin’ cards and shootin’ dice
He’s in the jailhouse now

Well, I went out last Tuesday
I met a girl named Suzie
She said I was the swellest guy around
Well, we started to spendin’ my money
And she started to callin’ me honey
We took in every cabaret in town

We’re in the jailhouse now
We’re in the jailhouse now
Well, I tol’ told that judge right to his face
I don’t like to see this place
We’re in the jailhouse now

In the Pines

My girl, my girl, don’t lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don’t ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My girl, my girl, where will you go
I’m going where the cold wind blows
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don’t ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

Her husband, was a hard working man
Just about a mile from here
His head was found in a driving wheel
But his body never was found

My girl, my girl, don’t lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don’t ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My girl, my girl, where will you go
I’m going where the cold wind blows
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don’t ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry

Well, I ride on a mail train, baby
Can’t buy a thrill
Well, I’ve been up all night
Leanin’ on the window sill
Well, if I die on top of the hill
And if I don’t make it
You know my baby will

Don’t the moon look good, mama
Shinin’ through the trees?
Don’t the brakeman look good, mama
Flagging down the Double E?
Don’t the sun look good
Goin’ down over the sea?
Don’t my gal look fine
When she’s comin’ after me?

Now the wintertime is coming
The windows are filled with frost
I went to tell everybody
But I could not get across
Well, I wanna be your lover, baby
I don’t wanna be your boss
Don’t say I never warned you
When your train gets lost

It’s a Long Way to Tipperary

Up to mighty London came an Irishman one day
As the streets are paved with gold, sure everyone was gay
Singing songs of Piccadilly, Strand and Leicester Square
Till Paddy got excited, then he shouted to them there

It’s a long way to Tipperary. It’s a long way to go
It’s a long way to Tipperary, to the sweetest girl I know
Goodbye, Piccadilly. Farewell, Leicester Square
It’s a long, long way to Tipperary, but my heart’s right there

Paddy wrote a letter to his Irish Molly O
Saying, “Should you not receive it, write and let me know
If I make mistakes in spelling, Molly dear,” said he
“Remember it’s the pen that’s bad, don’t lay the blame on me.”

It’s a long way to Tipperary. It’s a long way to go
It’s a long way to Tipperary, to the sweetest girl I know
Goodbye, Piccadilly. Farewell, Leicester Square
It’s a long, long way to Tipperary, but my heart’s right there

Molly wrote a neat reply to Irish Paddy O
Saying, “Mike Mahoney wants to marry me, and so
Leave the Strand and Piccadilly, or you’ll be to blame
For love has fairly drove me silly, hoping you’re the same!”

It’s a long way to Tipperary. It’s a long way to go
It’s a long way to Tipperary, to the sweetest girl I know
Goodbye, Piccadilly. Farewell, Leicester Square
It’s a long, long way to Tipperary, but my heart’s right there

It’s My Party

Nobody knows where my Johnny has gone
Judy left the same time
Why was he holding her hand
When he’s supposed to be mine?

It’s my party, and I’ll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

Play all my records, keep dancin’ all night
Leave me alone for a while
Till Johnny’s dancin’ with me
I’ve got no reason to smile

It’s my party, and I’ll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

Judy and Johnny just walked through the door
Like a queen with her king
Oh what a birthday surprise
Judy’s wearin’ his ring

It’s my party, and I’ll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

You would cry too if it happened to you

It’s Now or Never

It’s now or never, come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling, be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late
It’s now or never, my love won’t wait

When I first saw you with your smile so tender
My heart was captured, my soul surrendered
I’d spend a lifetime waiting for the right time
Now that you’re near the time is here at last

It’s now or never, come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling, be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late
It’s now or never, my love won’t wait

Just like a willow, we would cry an ocean
If we lost true love and sweet devotion
Your lips excite me, let your arms invite me
For who knows when we’ll meet again this way

It’s now or never, come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling, be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late
It’s now or never, my love won’t wait

It’s now or never, my love won’t wait
It’s now or never, my love won’t wait

It’s Only a Paper Moon

Say, it’s only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn’t be make-believe
If you believed in me

Yes, it’s only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldn’t be make-believe
If you believed in me

Without your love
It’s a honky-tonk parade
Without your love
It’s a melody played in a penny arcade

It’s a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn’t be make-believe
If you believed in me

Song List


It’s Only Make Believe

People see us everywhere
They think you really care
But myself I can’t deceive
I know it’s only make believe

My one and only prayer
Is that someday you’ll care
My hopes, my dreams come true
My one and only you
No one will ever know
How much I love you so
My only prayer will be
Someday you’ll care for me
But it’s only make believe

My hopes, my dreams come true
My life I’d give for you
My heart a wedding ring
My all my everything
My heart I can’t control
You rule my very soul
My plans, my hopes, my schemes
You are my everything
But it’s only make believe

My one and only prayer
Is that someday you’ll care
My hopes, my dreams come true
My one and only you
No one will ever know
How much I love you so
My only prayer will be
Someday you’ll care for me
But it’s only make believe

Jamaica Farewell

Down the way where the nights are gay
And the sun shines daily on the mountain top
I took a trip on a sailing ship
And when I reached Jamaica I made a stop

But I’m sad to say I’m on my way
Won’t be back for many a day
My heart is down, my head is turning around
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town

Down the market you can hear
Ladies cry out while on their heads they bear
Ackee rice, salt fish are nice
And the rum is fine any time of year

But I’m sad to say I’m on my way
Won’t be back for many a day
My heart is down, my head is turning around
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town

Sounds of laughter everywhere
And the dancing girls sway to and fro
I must declare my heart is there
Though I’ve been from Maine to Mexico

But I’m sad to say I’m on my way
Won’t be back for many a day
My heart is down, my head is turning around
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston townus

Jambalaya (On the Bayou)

Goodbye Joe, me gotta go, me oh my oh
Me gotta go pole the pirogue down the bayou
My Yvonne the sweetest one, me oh my oh
Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou

Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and filé gumbo
Cause tonight I’m gonna see my ma cher amio
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar, and be gay-o
Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou

Thibodaux, Fontaineaux, the place is buzzin’
Kinfolk come to see Yvonne by the dozen
Dress in style and go hog wild, me oh my oh

Cause tonight I’m gonna see my ma cher amio
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar, and be gay-o
Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou

Later on, swap my mon, get me a pirogue
And I’ll catch all the fish on the bayou
Swap my mon, to buy Yvonne what she need-oh
Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou

Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and filé gumbo
Cause tonight I’m gonna see my ma cher amio
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar, and be gay-o
Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou

John Wesley Harding

John Wesley Harding was a friend to the poor
He traveled with a gun in every hand
All along this countryside, he opened many a door
But he was never known to hurt an honest man

It was down in Chaynee County, a time they talk about
With his lady by his side he took a stand
And soon the situation there was all but straightened out
For he was always know to lend a helping hand

All across the telegraph, his name it did resound
But no charge held against him could be proved
And there was no man around who could track or chain him down
He was never known to make a foolish move

Song List


Joy to the World

Jeremiah was a bullfrog
Was a good friend of mine
I never understood a single word he said
But I helped him a-drink his wine
And he always had some mighty fine wine
Singin’

Joy to the world
All the boys and girls now
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me

If I were the king of the world
Tell you what I’d do
I’d throw away the cars and the bars and the war
Make sweet love to you
Sing it now

Joy to the world
All the boys and girls now
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me

You know I love the ladies
Love to have my fun
I’m a high life flyer and a rainbow rider
A straight shootin’ son-of-a-gun
I said a straight shootin’ son-of-a-gun

Joy to the world
All the boys and girls now
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me

Just Like a Woman

Nobody feels any pain
Tonight as I stand inside the rain
Everybody knows that baby’s got new clothes
But lately I see her ribbons and her bows
Have fallen from her curls

She takes just like a woman
She makes love just like a woman
And she aches just like a woman
But she breaks just like a little girl

Queen Mary, she’s my friend
Yes, I believe I’ll go see her again
Nobody has to guess that baby can’t be blessed
Till she finally sees that she’s like all the rest
With her fog, her amphetamine and her pearls

She takes just like a woman
She makes love just like a woman
And she aches just like a woman
But she breaks just like a little girl

It was raining from the first and I was dying of thirst
So I came in here
And your long-time curse hurts, but what’s worse is this
Pain in here. I can’t stay in here. Ain’t it clear that

I just can’t fit
Yes, I believe it’s time for us to quit
When we meet again, introduced as friends
Please don’t let on that you knew me when
I was hungry and it was your world

She takes just like a woman
She makes love just like a woman
And she aches just like a woman
But she breaks just like a little girl

Just one look and I knew-ew-ew that you were my only one, oh, oh

Just one look and I know-ow-ow I’ll get you someday, oh, oh

Just one look, that’s all it took
Just one look, that’s all it took
Just one look, that’s all it took

Kansas City

I’m going to Kansas City, Kansas City, here I come
I’m going to Kansas City, Kansas City, here I come

But if I have to walk, I’m gonna get there just the same
I’m going to Kansas City, Kansas City here I come
They got some crazy, little women there, and I’m gonna get me one

King of the Road

Trailer for sale or rent, Rooms to let, fifty cents
No phone, no pool, no pets, I ain’t got no cigarets
Ah, but two hours of pushing broom
Buys a eight-by-twelve, four-bit room
I’m a man of means by no means, king of the road

Third boxcar, midnight train, Destination, Bangor, Maine
Old worn out suit and shoes, I don’t pay no union dues
I smoke old stogies I have found
Short, but not too big around
I’m a man of means by no means, king of the road

I know every engineer on every train
All of their children and all of their names
Every handout in every town
And every lock that ain’t locked when no one’s around, I sing

Trailer for sale or rent, Rooms to let, fifty cents
No phone, no pool, no pets, I ain’t got no cigarets
Ah, but two hours of pushing broom
Buys a eight-by-twelve, four-bit room
I’m a man of means by no means, king of the road

Leaving on a Jet Plane

All my bags are packed. I’m ready to go
I’m standin’ here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
But the dawn is breakin’. It’s early morn
The taxi’s waitin’. He’s blowin’ his horn
Already I’m so lonesome, I could die

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
Hold me like you’ll never let me go
Cause I’m leavin’ on a jet plane
Don’t know when I’ll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

There’s so many times I’ve let you down
So many times I’ve played around
I tell you now, they don’t mean a thing
Every place I go, I’ll think of you
Every song I sing, I’ll sing for you
When I come back, I’ll bring your wedding ring

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
Hold me like you’ll never let me go
Cause I’m leavin’ on a jet plane
Don’t know when I’ll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

Now the time has come to leave you
One more time let me kiss you
Then close your eyes, and I’ll be on my way
Dream about the days to come
When I won’t have to leave alone
About the times, I won’t have to say

Kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
Hold me like you’ll never let me go
Cause I’m leavin’ on a jet plane
Don’t know when I’ll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

But, I’m leavin’ on a jet plane
Don’t know when I’ll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

I bless the day I found you I want to stay around you
And so I beg you let it be me

Don’t take this heaven from one, If you must cling to someone

Without your sweet love, What would life be

So never leave me lonely. Tell me you love me only
And that you’ll always, let it be me

Without your sweet love, What would life be

I bless the day I found you, I want to stay around you
And so I beg you, let it be me

A Little Bit of Soap

A little of soap will wash away your lipstick on my face
But a little of soap will never, never, never ever erase
The pain in my heart and my eyes as I go through the lonely years
A little bit of soap will never wash away my tears

A little of soap will wash away your powder from my chin
A little of soap will never, never, never ever begin
To take away the hurt that I feel as I go through the lonely years
A little bit of soap will never wash away my tears

Have you heard, when love begins to die
He isn’t one to cry, night and day
But like a bird, you left your robin’s nest
And just like all the rest, you flew away

A little of soap will take away your perfume eventually
But a little of soap will never wash away the memory
Of your name in the night that I call through the lonely years
A little bit of soap will never wash away my tears

I’ll never lose the memory of your name in the night
That I call through the lonely years
A little bit of soap will never wash away my tears
A little bit of soap will never wash away my tears
It’s gonna never, never, never wash away my tears

A Little Bitty Tear

A little bitty tear let me down
Spoiled my act as a clown
I had it made up not make a frown
But a little bitty tear let me down

You said you were leaving tomorrow
That today was our last day
I said there’d be no sorrow
That I’d laugh when you walked away

A little bitty tear let me down
Spoiled my act as a clown
I had it made up not make a frown
But a little bitty tear let me down

I said I’d laugh when you left me
Pull a funny as you went out the door
That I’d have another waiting
And I’d wave goodbye as you go

A little bitty tear let me down
Spoiled my act as a clown
I had it made up not make a frown
But a little bitty tear let me down

Everything went like I planned it
And I really put on quite a show
In my heart I felt I could stand it
Till you walked with your grip through the door

A little bitty tear let me down
Spoiled my act as a clown
I had it made up not make a frown
But a little bitty tear let me down

A little bitty tear let me down

Loch Lomond

By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie braes
Where the sun shines bright o’ Loch Lomond
Where me and my true love were ever wont to gae
On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond

Oh! You’ll take the high road, and I’ll take the low road
And I’ll be in Scotland afore ye
But me and my true love will never meet again
On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond

’Twas then that we parted, in yon shady glen
On the steep, steep side of Ben Lomond
Where in purple hue, the Highland hills we view
And the moon coming out in the gloaming

Oh! You’ll take the high road, and I’ll take the low road
And I’ll be in Scotland afore ye
But me and my true love will never meet again
On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond

The wee birdies sing, and the wildflowers spring
And in sunshine the waters are sleeping
But the broken heart will ken nae second spring again
Tho’ the woeful may cease frae their grieving

Oh! You’ll take the high road, and I’ll take the low road
And I’ll be in Scotland afore ye
But me and my true love will never meet again
On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond

The Locomotion

Everybody’s doin’ a brand new dance now
(Come on, baby, do the locomotion)
I know you’ll get to like it if you give it a chance now
(Come on, baby, do the locomotion)
My little baby sister can do it with ease
It’s easier than learning your ABCs
So come on, come on, do the locomotion with me

You gotta swing your hips now
Come on, baby, jump up, jump back
Oh, well, I think you’ve got the knack

Now that you can do it, let’s make a chain now

Chug-a chug-a motion like a railway train now
(Come on, baby, do the locomotion)
Do it nice and easy now don’t lose control
A little bit of rhythm and a lot of soul
So come on, come on, do the locomotion with me

Move around the floor in a locomotion
(Come on, baby, do the locomotion)
Do it holding hands if you got the notion
(Come on, baby, do the locomotion)
There’s never been a dance that’s so easy to do
It even makes you happy when you’re feeling blue
So come on, come on, do the locomotion with me

Come on, baby, do the locomotion
Come on, baby, do the locomotion

Got to sit down, take a rest on the porch
Imagination sets in, pretty soon I’m singin

Won’t you take a ride on the flyin spoon? Doo, doo doo
Wond’rous apparition provided by magician

Love Minus Zero (No Limit)

My love she speaks like silence
Without ideals or violence
She doesn’t have to say she’s faithful
Yet she’s true, like ice, like fire
People carry roses
And make promises by the hours
My love she laughs like the flowers
Valentines can’t buy her

In the dime stores and bus stations
People talk of situations
Read books, repeat quotations
Draw conclusions on the wall
Some speak of the future
My love she speaks softly
She knows there’s no success like failure
And that failure’s no success at all

The cloak and dagger dangles
Madams light the candles
In ceremonies of the horsemen
Even the pawn must hold a grudge
Statues made of match sticks
Crumble into one another
My love winks, she does not bother
She knows too much to argue or to judge

The bridge at midnight trembles
The country doctor rambles
Bankers’ nieces seek perfection
Expecting all the gifts that wise men bring
The wind howls like a hammer
The night blows cold and rainy
My love she’s like some raven
At my window with a broken wing

Love Potion Number Nine

I took my troubles down to Madame Ruth
You know that gypsy with the gold-capped tooth
She’s got a pad down on Thirty-Fourth and Vine
Selling little bottles of love potion number nine

I told her that I was a flop with chics
I’ve been this way since 1956
She looked at my palm and she made a magic sign
She said "What you need is love potion number nine"

She bent down and turned around and gave me a wink
She said "I’m gonna make it up right here in the sink"
It smelled like turpentine, it looked like Indian ink
I held my nose, I closed my eyes, I took a drink

I didn’t know if it was day or nightsd
I started kissing everything in sight
But when I kissed a cop down on Thirty-Fourth and Vine
He broke my little bottle of Love Potion Number Nine
I held my nose, I closed my eyes, I took a drink

I didn’t know if it was day or night
I started kissing everything in sight
But when I kissed a cop down on Thirty-Fourth and Vine
He broke my little bottle of Love Potion Number Nine
Love potion number nine
Love Potion number nine
Love Potion number nine

Mac the Knife

Oh, the shark, babe, has such teeth, dear
And it shows them pearly white
Just a jackknife has old MacHeath, dear
And he keeps it, ah, out of sight
When that shark bites with his teeth, dear
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves, oh, wears old MacHeath, dear
So there’s never, never a trace of red
Now on the sidewalk, sunny morning, un huh
Lies a body just oozin’ life
And someone’s sneakin’ ’round the corner
Could that someone be Mack the Knife?

There’s a tugboat, down by the river
Where a cement bag’s just a’drooppin’ on down
Oh, that cement is for, just for the weight, dear
Five’ll get ya ten old Macky’s back in town
Now d’ja hear ’bout Louie Miller? He disappeared, babe
After drawin’ out all his hard-earned cash
And now MacHeath spends just like a sailor
Could it be our boy’s done somethin’ rash?
Now Jenny Diver, Sukey Tawdry, Ooh

Oh, that line forms on the right, babe
Now that Macky’s back in town

Look out to Miss Lotte Lenya and old Lucy Brown
Yes, that line forms on the right, babe
Now that Macky’s back in town
Look out, old Macky’s back

And when I talk they start to sing:

Mama, look a boo-boo they shout
Their mother tell them shut up your mout’
That is your daddy, oh, no
My daddy can’t be ugly so

Shut your mout’, Go away
Mama, look at boo-boo dey
Shut your mout’, Go away
Mama, look at boo-boo dey

I couldn’t even digest me supper
Due to the children’s behavior
John (Yes, pa) come here a moment
Bring de belt, you’re much too impudent

John says it’s James who started first
James tells the story in reverse
I drag my belt from off me waist
You should hear them screamin’ round de place

Mama, look a boo-boo they shout
Their mother tell them shut up your mout’
That is your daddy, oh, no
My daddy can’t be ugly so

Shut your mout’, Go away
Mama, look at boo-boo dey
Shut your mout’, Go away
Mama, look at boo-boo dey

So I began to question the mother
These children ain’t got no behavior
So I began to question the mother
These children ain’t got no behavior

They’re playing with you my wife declared
You should be proud of them, my dear
These children were taught too bloomin’ slack
That ain’t no kind of joke to crack

Mama, look a boo-boo they shout
Their mother tell them shut up your mout’
That is your daddy, oh, no
My daddy can’t be ugly so

Shut your mout’, Go away
Mama, look at boo-boo dey
Shut your mout’, Go away
Mama, look at boo-boo dey

Shut your mout’!

Masters of War

Come you masters of war, you that build all the guns
You that build the death planes, you that build the big bombs
You that hide behind walls, you that hide behind desks
I just want you to know, I can see through your masks

You that never done nothin’ but build to destroy
You play with my world Like it’s your little toy
You put a gun in my hand, and you hide from my eyes
And you turn and run farther When the fast bullets fly

Like Judas of old, you lie and deceive
A world war can be won, you want me to believe
But I see through your eyes, and I see through your brain
Like I see through the water that runs down my drain

You fasten the triggers for the others to fire
Then you set back and watch, when the death count gets higher
You hide in your mansion as young people’s blood
Flows out of their bodies and is buried in the mud

You’ve thrown the worst fear that can ever be hurled
Fear to bring children into the world
For threatening my baby, unborn and unnamed
You ain’t worth the blood that runs in your veins

How much do I know to talk out of turn?
You might say that I’m young. You might say I’m unlearned
But there’s one thing I know, though I’m younger than you
Even Jesus would never forgive what you do

Let me ask you one question. Is your money that good?
Will it buy you forgiveness? Do you think that it could?
I think you will find, when your death takes its toll
All the money you made will never buy back your soul

And I hope that you die, and your death’ll come soon
I will follow your casket in the pale afternoon
And I’ll watch while you’re lowered down to your deathbed
And I’ll stand o’er your grave, till I’m sure that you’re dead

The Midnight Special

Well, you wake up in the mornin’, you hear the work bell ring
And they march you to the table, you see the same old thing
Ain’t no food upon the table, there’s no pork up in the pan
But you better not complain, boy, you get in trouble with the man

Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a ever-lovin’ light on me

Yonder come miss Rosie, how in the world did you know?
By the way she wears her apron, and the clothes she wore
Umbrella on her shoulder, piece of paper in her hand
She come to see the gov’nor, she want to free her man

Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a ever-lovin’ light on me

If you’re ever in Houston, well, you better do the right
You better not gamble, there, you better not fight, at all
Or the sheriff will grab ya and the boys will bring you down
The next thing you know, boy, Oh! You’re prison bound

Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a ever-lovin’ light on me

Mockingbird Hill

When the sun in the morning peeps over the hill
And kisses the roses ’round my window sill
Then my heart fills with gladness when I hear the trill
Of the birds in the treetops on Mockingbird Hill

Tra la la, tweedle dee dee dee, it gives me a thrill
To wake up in the morning to the mockingbird’s trill
Tra la la tweedle dee dee dee, there’s peace and good will
You’re welcome as the flowers on Mockingbird Hill

Got a three-cornered plow and an acre to till
And a mule that I bought for a ten-dollar bill
There’s a tumble-down shack and a rusty old mill
But it’s my Home Sweet Home up on Mockingbird Hill

Tra la la, tweedle dee dee dee, it gives me a thrill
To wake up in the morning to the mockingbird’s trill
Tra la la tweedle dee dee dee, there’s peace and good will
You’re welcome as the flowers on Mockingbird Hill

When it’s late in the evening I climb up the hill
And survey all my kingdom while everything’s still
Only me and the sky and an old whippoorwill
Singin’ songs in the twilight on Mockingbird Hill

Tra la la, tweedle dee dee dee, it gives me a thrill
To wake up in the morning to the mockingbird’s trill
Tra la la tweedle dee dee dee, there’s peace and good will
You’re welcome as the flowers on Mockingbird Hill

Moon River

Moon River, wider than a mile
I’m crossing you in style some day
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever you’re going, I’m going your way

Two drifters off to see the world

We’re af-ter the same rainbows end
Waiting round the bend
My huckleberry friend
Moon River and me

Moon River, wider than a mile
I’m crossing you in style some day
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever you’re going, I’m going your way

Two drifters off to see the world
There’s such a lot of world to see
We’re af-ter the same rainbows end
Waiting round the bend
My huckleberry friend
Moon River and me

That baby of mine wouldn’t let me in
So move it on over (Move it on over)
Move it on over (Move it on over)
Move over little dog cuz a big dog’s movin in

She’s changed the lock on our front door
And my door key don’t fit no more
So get it on over (Move it on over)
Scoot it on over (Move it on over)
Move over skinny dog cuz a fat dog’s movin in

The dog house here is mighty small
But it’s better than no house at all
So ease it on over (Move it on over)
Drag it on over (Move it on over)
Move over old dog cuz a new dog’s movin in

She told me not to play around
But I done let the deal go down
So pack it on over (Move it on over)
Tote it on over (Move it on over)
Move over nice dog cuz a mad dog’s movin in

She warned me once, she warned me twice
But I don’t take no one’s advice
So scratch it on over (Move it on over)
Shake it on over (Move it on over)
Move over short dog cuz a tall dog’s movin in

She’ll crawl back to me on her knees
I’ll be busy scratchin fleas
So slide it on over (Move it on over)
Sneak it on over (Move it on over)
Move over good dog cuz a mad dog’s movin i

Remember, pup, before you whine
That side’s yours and this side’s mine
So shove it on over (Move it on over)

The worst person I know (Mother in law) Mother in law
Ah, she worries me so (Mother in law) Mother in law
If she’d leave us alone, we would have a happy home

She asks me what I made (Mother in law) Mother in law
She thinks her advice is the constitution
But if she would leave that would be the solution
And don’t come back no more

Mr. Bojangles

I knew a man Bojangles and he danced for you
In worn out shoes
Silver hair, a ragged shirt and baggy pants
The old soft shoe
He jumped so high. He jumped so high
Then he’d lightly touched down

I met him in a cell in New Orleans I was
Down and out
He looked to me to be the eyes of age
As he spoke right out
He talked of life. He talked of life
He lightly clicked his heels instead

He said the name Bojangles and he danced a lick
Across the cell
He grabbed his pants and spread his stance
He jumped so high. He clicked his heels
He let go a laugh. He let go a laugh
Shook back his clothes all around

Mr Bojangles, Mr Bojangles
Mr Bojangles, dance

We danced for those at minstrel shows and county fairs
Throughout the south
We spoke in tears of fifteen years
How his dog and him. They travelled about
His dog up and died. He up and died
After twenty years he still grieves

He said I dance now at every chance and honky tonks
For drinks and tips
But most the time I spend behind these county bars
Cause I drinks a bit
He shook his head and as he shook his head
I heard someone ask please

Mr Bojangles, Mr Bojangles
Mr Bojangles, dance

Mr. Tambourine Man

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
I’m not sleepy and there is no place I’m going to
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning I’ll come following you

Though I know that evenings empire has returned into sand
Vanished from my hand, Left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping
My weariness amazes me, I’m branded on my feet, I have no one to meet
And the ancient empty street’s too dead for dreaming

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
I’m not sleepy and there is no place I’m going to
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning I’ll come following you

Take me on a trip upon your magic swirling ship
My senses have been stripped, my hands can’t feel to grip
My toes too numb to step, wait only for my boot heels to be wandering
I’m ready to go anywhere, I’m ready for to fade
Into my own parade, cast your dancing spell my way, I promise to go under it

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
I’m not sleepy and there is no place I’m going to
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning I’ll come following you

Though you might hear laughing, spinning, swinging madly across the sun
It’s not aimed at anyone, it’s just escaping on the run
And but for the sky there are no fences facing
And if you hear vague traces of skipping reels of rhyme
To your tambourine in time, it’s just a ragged clown behind
I wouldn’t pay it any mind, it’s just a shadow you’re seeing that he’s chasing

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
I’m not sleepy and there is no place I’m going to
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning I’ll come following you

Then take me disappearing through the smoke rings of my mind
Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves
The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free,
Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands
With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves
Let me forget about today until tomorrow

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
I’m not sleepy and there is no place I’m going to
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning I’ll come following you

Mrs. Brown You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter

Mrs. Brown you’ve got a lovely daughter
Girls as sharp as her are somethin’ rare
But it’s sad, she doesn’t love me now
She’s made it clear enough it ain’t no good to pine

She wants to return those things I bought her
Tell her she can keep them just the same
Things have changed, she doesn’t love me now
She’s made it clear enough it ain’t no good to pine

Walkin’ about, even in a crowd, well
You’ll pick her out, makes a bloke feel so proud

If she finds that I’ve been round to see you (round to see you)
Tell her that I’m well and feelin’ fine (feelin’ fine)
Don’t let on, don’t say she broke my heart
I’d go down on my knees but it’s no good to pine

Walkin’ about, even in a crowd, well
You’ll pick her out, makes a bloke feel so proud

If she finds that I’ve been round to see you (round to see you)
Tell her that I’m well and feelin’ fine (feelin’ fine)
Don’t let on, don’t say she broke my heart
I’d go down on my knees but it’s no good to pine

Mrs. Brown you’ve got a lovely daughter (lovely daughter)
Mrs. Brown you’ve got a lovely daughter (lovely daughter)

When it’s cold outside, I’ve got the month of May
I guess you’d say, what can make me feel this way?

I’ve got a sweeter song than the birds in the trees

No handsome face could ever take the place of my guy (My guy)
He may not be a movie star, but when it comes to bein’ happy we are

No muscle-bound man could take my hand from my guy (My guy)
No handsome face could ever take the place of my guy (My guy)

My Old Kentucky Home

The sun shines bright on my old Kentucky home
Tis summer, the people are gay
The corn top’s ripe and the meadow’s in bloom
While the birds make music all the day
The young folks roll on the little cabin floor
All merry, all happy and bright
By ’n by hard times come a-knocking at the door
Then my old Kentucky home good night

Weep no more, my lady. Oh, weep no more, today
We will sing one song for the old Kentucky home
For the old Kentucky home far away

They hunt no more for the ’possum and the coon
On meadow, the hill and the shore
They sing no more by the glimmer of the moon
On the bench by that old cabin door
The day goes by like a shadow o’er the heart
With sorrow where all was delight
The time has come when the people have to part
Then my old Kentucky home, good night

Weep no more, my lady. Oh, weep no more, today
We will sing one song for the old Kentucky home
For the old Kentucky home far away

The head must bow and the back will have to bend
Wherever the poor folks may go
A few more days and the trouble will end
In the field where sugarcanes may grow
A few more days for to tote the weary load
No matter, ’twill never be light
A few more days till we totter on the road
Then my old Kentucky home, good night

Weep no more, my lady. Oh, weep no more, today
We will sing one song for the old Kentucky home
For the old Kentucky home far away

Okie from Muskogee

We don’t smoke marijuana in Muskogee
We don’t take our trips on LSD
We don’t burn our draft cards down on Main Street
We like livin’ right, and bein’ free

We don’t make a party out of lovin’
We like holdin’ hands and pitchin’ woo
We don’t let our hair grow long and shaggy
Like the hippies out in San Francisco do

I’m proud to be an Okie from Muskogee
A place where even squares can have a ball
We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse
And white lightnin’s still the biggest thrill of all

Leather boots are still in style for manly footwear
Beads and Roman sandals won’t be seen
Football’s still the roughest thing on campus
And the kids here still respect the college dean

And I’m proud to be an Okie from Muskogee
A place where even squares can have a ball
We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse
And white lightnin’s still the biggest thrill of all
And white lightnin’s still the biggest thrill of all
In Muskogee, Oklahoma, USA

The sun so hot I froze to death

Oh! Susanna, oh don’t you cry for me

I had a dream de odder night, when everything was still
I thought I saw Susanna a-coming down the hill
The buckwheat cake was in her mouth, the tear was in her eye
Says I, “I’m coming’ from the south
Susanna, don’t you cry.”

Oh! Susanna, oh don’t you cry for me
I’ve come from Alabama
With my banjo on my knee

I soon will be in New Orleans, and then I’ll look all round
And when I find Susanna, I’ll fall upon de ground
And if I do not find her, oh, Lord, l’ll surely die
And when I’m dead and buried
Susanna, don’t you cry

Oh! Susanna, oh don’t you cry for me
I’ve come from Alabama
With my banjo on my knee

There’s a bright, golden haze on the meadow
There’s a bright, golden haze on the meadow
The corn is as high as an elephant’s eye
And it looks like it’s climbin’ clear up to the sky

Oh, what a beautiful mornin’
Oh, what a beautiful day
I got a beautiful feelin’
Everything’s goin’ my way

All the cattle are standin’ like statues
All the cattle are standin’ like statues
They don’t turn their heads as they see me ride by
But a little brown mav’rick is winkin’ her eye

Oh, what a beautiful mornin’
Oh, what a beautiful day
I got a beautiful feelin’
Everything’s goin’ my way

All the sounds of the earth are like music
All the sounds of the earth are like music
The breeze is so busy it don’t miss a tree
And an old weepin’ willer is laughin’ at me

Oh, what a beautiful mornin’
Oh, what a beautiful day

On the road again
I just can’t wait to get on the road again
The life I love is makin’ music with my friends
And I can’t wait to get on the road again

And I can’t wait to get on the road again

On the Street Where You Live

I have often walked down this street before
But the pavement always stayed beneath my feet before
All at once am I several stories high
Knowing I’m on the street where you live

Are there lilac trees in the heart of town?
Can you hear a lark in any other part of town?
Does enchantment pour out of every door?
No, it’s just on the street where you live

And oh, the towering feeling
Just to know somehow you are near
The overpowering feeling
That any moment you may suddenly appear

People stop and stare, they don’t bother me
For there’s nowhere else on earth that I would rather be
Let the time go by, I won’t care if I
Can be here on the street where you live

Song List


On the Sunny Side of the Street

Get your coat and grab your hat
Leave your worries on the doorstep
Just direct your feet to the sunny side of the street

Can’t you hear a pitter-pat? And that happy tune is your step
Life can be so sweet, on the sunny side of the street

I used to walk in the shade with those blues on parade
But I’m not afraid. This rover’s crossed over

If I never have a cent
I’d be rich as Rockefeller
With gold dust at my feet on the sunny side of the street

Song List


On Top of Old Smokey

On top of old smokey all covered with snow
I lost my true lover for courting too slow
For courting’s a pleasure and parting’s a grief
And a false hearted lover is worse than a thief
For a thief will just rob you and take all you save
But a false hearted lover will lead you to the grave
And the grave will decay you and turn you to dust
Not one girl in a hundred a poor boy can trust
They’ll hug you and kiss you and tell you more lies
Than cross lines on a railroad or stars in the skies
So come all your maidens and listen to me
Never place your affections on a green willow tree
For the leaves they will wither and the roots they will die
You’ll all be forsaken and never know why

Maybe tomorrow a new romance
No more sorrow, but that’s the chance
You’ve got to take if your lonely heart breaks
Only the lonely (Dum dum dum dumbie do wah)

Over the Rainbow

Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
There’s a land that I heard of once in a lullaby

Somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true

Someday I’ll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where troubles melts like lemon drops
Away above the chimney top
That’s where you’ll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow. Why then, oh, why can’t I?

If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow
Why, oh, why can’t I?

Paper Doll

I’m gonna buy a paper doll that I can call my own
A doll that other fellows cannot steal
And then the flirty, flirty guys with their flirty, flirty eyes
Will have to flirt with dollies that are real

When I come home at night she will be waiting
She’ll be the truest doll in all this world
I’d rather have a paper doll to call my own
Than have a fickle-minded real live girl

I guess I had a million dolls or more
I guess I’ve played the doll game o’er and o’er
I just quarreled with Sue, that’s why I’m blue
She’s gone away and left me just like all dolls do

I’ll tell you boys, it’s tough to be alone
And it’s tough to love a doll that’s not your own
I’m through with all of them, I’ll never fall again
Say boy, whatcha gonna do?

I’m gonna buy a paper doll that I can call my own
A doll that other fellows cannot steal
And then the flirty, flirty guys with their flirty, flirty eyes
Will have to flirt with dollies that are real

When I come home at night she will be waiting
She’ll be the truest doll in all this world
I’d rather have a paper doll to call my own
Than have a fickle-minded real live girl

Paradise (Muhlenberg County)

When I was a child my family would travel
Down to Western Kentucky where my parents were born
And there’s a backwards old town that’s often remembered
So many times that my memories are worn

Daddy, won’t you take me back to Muhlenberg County
Down by the Green River where paradise lay
Well, I’m sorry, my son, but you’re too late in asking
Mr. Peabody’s coal train has hauled it away

Well, sometimes we’d travel right down the Green River
To the abandoned old prison down by Airdrie Hill
Where the air smelled like snakes and we’d shoot with our pistols
But empty pop bottles was all we would kill

Daddy, won’t you take me back to Muhlenberg County
Down by the Green River where paradise lay
Well, I’m sorry, my son, but you’re too late in asking
Mr. Peabody’s coal train has hauled it away

Then the coal company came with the world’s largest shovel
And they tortured the timber and stripped all the land
Well, they dug for their coal ’til the land was forsaken
Then they wrote it all down as the progress of man

Daddy, won’t you take me back to Muhlenberg County
Down by the Green River where paradise lay
Well, I’m sorry, my son, but you’re too late in asking
Mr. Peabody’s coal train has hauled it away

When I die let my ashes float down the Green River
Let my soul roll on up to the Rochester Dam
I’ll be halfway to Heaven with Paradise waitin’
Just five miles away from wherever I am

Daddy, won’t you take me back to Muhlenberg County
Down by the Green River where paradise lay
Well, I’m sorry, my son, but you’re too late in asking
Mr. Peabody’s coal train has hauled it away

Pennies From Heaven

Ev’ry time it rains, it rains pennies from heaven
Don’t you know each cloud contains pennies from heaven?
You’ll find your fortune falling all over town
Be sure that your umbrella
Is upside down

Trade them for a package of sunshine and flowers
If you want the things you love, you must have showers
So when you hear it thunder, don’t run under a tree
There’ll be pennies from heaven for you and me

Pink Shoelaces

Now I’ve got a guy and his name is Dooley
He’s my guy and I love him truly
He’s not good lookin’, heaven knows
But I’m wild about his crazy clothes

He wears tan shoes with pink shoelaces
A polka dot vest and man, oh, man
Tan shoes with pink shoelaces
And a big Panama with a purple hat band

Ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh

He takes me deep-sea fishing in a submarine
We go to drive-in movies in a limousine
He’s got a whirly-birdy and a twelve-foot yacht
Ah, but thats-a not all he’s got

He’s got tan shoes with pink shoelaces
A polka dot vest and man, oh, man
Tan shoes with pink shoelaces
And a big Panama with a purple hat band

Now Dooley had a feelin’ we were goin’ to war
So he went out and enlisted in a fightin’ corps
But he landed in the brig for raisin’ such a storm
When they tried to put ’em in a uniform

He wanted tan shoes with pink shoelaces
A polka dot vest and man, oh, man
Tan shoes with pink shoelaces
And a big Panama with a purple hat band

Now one day Dooley started feelin’ sick
And he decided that he better make his will out quick
He said, “Just before the angels come to carry me
I want it down in writin’ how to bury me.”

A’wearin tan shoes with pink shoelaces
A polka dot vest and man, oh, man
Tan shoes with pink shoelaces
And a big Panama with a purple hat band

Ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh
And a big Panama with a purple hat band!

Proud Mary

Left a good job in the city
Workin for the man ev’ry night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleepin
Worryin’ ’bout the way things might have been

Big wheel keep on turnin’
Proud Mary keep on burnin’
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river

Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis
Pumped a lot of pain down in New Orleans
But I never saw the good side of the city
Till I hitched a ride on a river boat queen

Big wheel keep on turnin’
Proud Mary keep on burnin’
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river

If you come down to the river
Betcha gonna find some people who live
You don’t have to worry tho you have no money
People on the river are happy to give

Big wheel keep on turnin’
Proud Mary keep on burnin’
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river

Puff the Magic Dragon

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee
Little Jackie Paper loved that rascal Puff
And brought him strings and sealing wax
And other fancy stuff

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee

Together they would travel on a boat with billowed sail
Jackie kept a lookout perched on Puff’s gigantic tail
Noble kings and princes would bow whene’er they came
Pirate ships would lower their flags when
Puff roared out his name

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee

A dragon lives forever but not so little boys
Painted wings and giant rings make way for other toys
One grey night it happened, Jackie Paper came no more
And Puff that mighty dragon, he ceased his fearless roar

His head was bent in sorrow, green scales fell like rain
Puff no longer went to play along the cherry lane
Without his life-long friend, Puff could not be brave
So Puff that mighty dragon sadly slipped into his cave

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee

Return to Sender

(Return to sender. Return to sender.)

I gave a letter to the postman. He put it his sack
Bright in early next morning, he brought my letter back

(She wrote upon it:)
Return to sender, address unknown
No such number, no such zone
We had a quarrel, a lovers’ spat
I write I’m sorry but my letter keeps coming back

So then I dropped it in the mailbox and sent it special D
Bright in early next morning, it came right back to me

(She wrote upon it:)
Return to sender, address unknown
No such number, no such zone

This time I’m gonna take it myself
And put it right in her hand
And if it comes back the very next day
Then I’ll understand (the writing on it)

Return to sender, address unknown
No such number, no such zone

Return to sender. Return to sender...

Ring of Fire

Love is a burning thing
And it makes a fiery ring
Bound by wild desire
I fell into a ring of fire

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down
And the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns
The ring of fire, the ring of fire

The taste of love is sweet
When hearts like ours meet
I fell for you like a child
Oh, but the fire went wild

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down
And the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns
The ring of fire, the ring of fire

Rhythm of the Rain

Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain
Telling me just what a fool I’ve been
I wish that it would go and let me cry in vain
And let me be alone again

The only girl I care about has gone away
Looking for a brand new start
But little does she know that when she left that day
Along with her she took my heart

Rain please tell me, now does that seem fair
For her to steal my heart away when she don’t care
I can’t love another when my heart’s somewhere far away

The only girl I’ve ever loved has gone away
Looking for a brand new start
But little does she know that when she left that day
Along with her she took my heart

Rain won’t you tell her that I love her so
Please ask the sun to set her heart aglow
Rain in her heart and let the love we knew start to grow

Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain
Telling me just what a fool I’ve been
I wish that it would go and let me cry in vain
And let me be alone again

Oh, listen to the rythmn of the falling rain
Pitter patter, pitter patter
Listen to, listen to the falling rain
Pitter patter, pitter patter

Saturday Night at the Movies

Saturday night at eight o’clock I know where I’m gonna go
I’m gonna pick my baby up And take her to the picture show
Everybody in the neighborhood is dressin’ up to be there too
And we’re gonna have a ball just like we always do

Saturday night at the movies, who cares what picture we see?
When you’re huggin’ with your baby in the last row of the balcony

They got Technicolor and Cinemascope, the best out of Hollywood
And the popcorn from the candy stand makes it all taste twice as good
There’s always lots of pretty girls with figures they don’t try to hide
But they never can compare to the girl sittin’ by my side

Saturday night at the movies, who cares what picture we see?
When you’re huggin’ with your baby in the last row of the balcony

Save the Last Dance for Me

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 moonlight

But don’t forget who’s taking you home
And in whose arms you’re gonna be
Oh, darling, save the last dance for me

Oh, I know that the music is fine like sparkling 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 taking you home
And in whose arms you’re gonna be
Oh, darling, 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 ever let you go.
Cause I love you, oh, so much

You can dance, go carry on till the night is gone
And it’s time to go
If he asks if you’re all alone, can he take you home
You must tell him no

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 moonlight

But don’t forget who’s taking you home
And in whose arms you’re gonna be
Oh, darling, save the last dance for me

Oh, darling, save the last dance for me

Seventy-six Trombones

Seventy six trombones led the big parade
With a hundred and ten cornets close at hand
They were followed by rows and rows of the finest virtuosos
The cream of ev’ry famous band

Seventy six trombones caught the morning sun
With a hundred and ten cornets right behind
There were more than a thousand reeds springing up like weeds
There were horns of ev’ry shape and kind

There were copper-bottom tympani in horse platoons
Thundering, thundering, all along the way
Double-bell euphoniums and big bassoons
Each bassoon having his big fat say

There were fifty mounted cannon in the battery
Thundering, thundering, louder than before
Clarinets of eve’ry size and trumpeters who’d improvise
A full octave higher than the score

Seventy six trombones led the big parade
When the order to march rang out loud and clear
Starting off with a big bang bong on a Chinese gong
By a big bang bonger at the rear

Seventy six trombones hit the counter point
While a hundred and ten cornets played the air
Then I modestly took my place as the one and only bass
And I oompahed up and down the square

She’s Got You

I’ve got your picture that you gave to me
And it’s signed, “With love,” just like it used to be
The only thing different, the only thing new
I’ve got your picture, she’s got you

I’ve got your records that we used to share
And they still sound the same as when you were here
The only thing different, the only thing new
I’ve got the records, she’s got you

I’ve got your memory, or has it got me
I really don’t know, but I know it won’t let me be

I’ve got your class ring that proved you care
And it still looks the same as when you gave it, dear
The only thing different, the only thing new
I’ve got these little things, she’s got you

I’ve got your memory, or has it got me
I really don’t know, but I know it won’t let me be

I’ve got your class ring that proved you care
And it still looks the same as when you gave it, dear
The only thing different, the only thing new
I’ve got these little things, she’s got you

Shine on Harvest Moon

The night was mighty dark so you could hardly see
And the moon refused to shine
Couple sittin’ underneath the willow tree
For love they pined
The little maid was kinda ’fraid of darkness
So she said, “I guess I’ll go.”
The boy began to sigh, looked up in the sky
And told the moon his little tale of woe

Shine on, shine on, harvest moon up in the sky
I ain’t had no lovin’ since January, February, June or July
Snow time ain’t no time to stay outdoors and spoon
So shine on, shine on, harvest moon, for me and my gal

I can’t see why a boy should cry when by his side
Is a girl he loves so true
All he has to say is, “Won’t you be my bride
For I love you.”
But why should I be telling you this secret
When I know that you can guess?
Harvest moon will smile, shine on all the while
If the little girl should answer “Yes”!

Shine on, shine on, harvest moon up in the sky
I ain’t had no lovin’ since January, February, June or July
Snow time ain’t no time to stay outdoors and spoon
So shine on, shine on, harvest moon, for me and my gal

Side by Side

Oh, we ain’t got a barrel of money
Maybe we’re ragged and funny
But we’ll travel along singing a song
Side by side

Oh, we don’t know what’s coming tomorrow
Maybe it’s trouble and sorrow
But we’ll travel the road sharing the load
Side by side

Through all kinds of weather
What if the sky should fall?
As long as we’re together
It doesn’t matter at all

When they’ve all had their troubles and parted
We’ll be the same as we started
Just travelin’ along, singin’ a song
Side by side

Through all kinds of weather,
What if the sky should fall?
As long as we’re together
It doesn’t matter at all

When they’ve all had their troubles and parted
We’ll be the same as we started
Just travelin’ along, singin’ a song
Side by side

Side by side

Singin in the Rain

I’m singin’ in the rain, just singin’ in the rain
What a glorious feeling I’m happy again
I’m laughing at clouds so dark above
The sun’s in my heart and I’m ready for love

Let the stormy clouds chase everyone from the place
Come on with the rain, I’ve a smile on my face
I’ll walk down the lane with a happy refrain
Just singin’, singin’ in the rain

Silhouettes

Took a walk and passed your house late last night
All the shades were pulled and drawn way down tight
From within a dim light cast two silhouettes on the shade
Oh, what a lovely couple they made

Put his arms around your waist, held you tight
Kisses I could almost taste in the night
Wondered why I’m not the guy whose silhouette’s on the shade
I couldn’t hide the tears in my eyes

Silhouettes, silhouettes, silhouettes,
Silhouettes, silhouettes, silhouettes, ay oh
Silhouettes, silhouettes, silhouettes,
Silhouettes, silhouettes, silhouettes, ay oh

Lost control and rang your bell. I was sore
Let me in or else I’ll beat down your door!
When two strangers who had been two silhouettes on the shade
Said to my shock, “You’re on the wrong block.”

Rushed down to your house with wings on my feet
Loved you like I’d never loved you my sweet
Vowed that you and I would be two silhouettes on the shade
All of our days, two silhouettes on the shade

Silhouettes, silhouettes, silhouettes,
Silhouettes, silhouettes, silhouettes, ay oh
Silhouettes, silhouettes, silhouettes,
Silhouettes, silhouettes, silhouettes, ay oh

Two silhouettes on the shade

Singing the Blues

Well, I never felt more like singing the blues
Cuz I never thought that I’d ever lose your love dear
Why’d you do me this way?

Well, I never felt more like crying all night
Cuz everything’s wrong and nothing ain’t right without you
You got me singing the blues

The moon and the stars no longer shine
The dream is gone I thought was mine
There’s nothing left for me to do
But cry-y-y-y over you

Well, I never felt more like running away
But why should I go, cuz I couldn’t stay without you
You got me singing the blues

Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay

Sittin’ in the morning sun
I’ll be sittin’ with the evening comes
Watching the ships roll in
Then I watch ’em roll away again

Sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Just sittin’ on the dock of the bay, wastin’ time

I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the Frisco Bay
I’ve had nothin’ to live for
Look like nothin’s gonna come my way

So I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Just sittin’ on the dock of the bay, wastin’ time

Looks like nothin’s gonna change
Everything still remains the same
I can’t do what ten people tell me to do
So I guess I’ll remain the same

Sittin’ here resting my bones
And this loneliness won’t leave me alone
It’s two-thousand miles I roamed
Just to make this dock my home

Now I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Just sittin’ on the dock of the bay, wastin’ time

Sittin on Top of the World

Was in the spring, one sunny day
My sweetheart left me. Lord, she went away
And now she’s gone, and I don’t worry
Lord, I’m sittin on top of the world

She called me up from down in El Paso
She said, "Come back, Daddy. Ooo, I need you so"
And now she’s gone, and I don’t worry
Lord, I’m sittin on top of the world

You don’t like my peaches, don’t you shake my tree
Get out my orchard, let my peaches be
And now she’s gone, and I don’t worry
Lord, I’m sittin on top of the world

And don’t you come here runnin, holdin out your hand
I’m gonna get me a woman like you got your man
And now she’s gone, and I don’t worry
Lord, I’m sittin on top of the world

Was in the spring, one sunny day
My sweetheart left me. Lord, she went away
And now she’s gone, and I don’t worry
I’m sittin on top of the world

Six Days on the Road

Well I pulled outta Pittsburgh
A-rollin’ down that eastern seaboard
I got my diesel wound up and she’s a-runnin’ like a-never before
There’s a speed zone ahead, well, all right
I don’t see a cop in sight
Six days on the road and I’m a-gonna make it home tonight

I got me ten forward gears and a Georgia overdrive
I’m takin’ little white pills, and my eyes are open wide
I just passed a Jimmy and a White
I been a-passin’ everything in sight
Six days on the road and I’m a-gonna make it home tonight

Well, it seems like a month since I kissed my baby goodbye
I could have a lotta women, but I’m a-not a-like a-some of the guys
I could find one to hold me tight
But I could never make believe it’s all right
Six days on the road and I’m a-gonna make it home tonight

ICC is checkin’ on down the line
Well, I’m a little overweight, and my log book’s way behind
But nothin’ bothers me tonight
I can dodge all the scales all right
Six days on the road and I’m a-gonna make it home tonight

Well, my rig’s a little old but that don’t mean she’s slow
That’s a flame from my stack and that smoke’s a-blowin’ black as coal
My hometown’s a-comin’ in sight
If you think I’m a-happy, you’re right
Six days on the road and I’m a-gonna make it home tonight

Six days on the road and I’m a-gonna make it home tonight
Six days on the road and I’m a-gonna make it home tonight

Sixteen Tons

Some people say a man is made outa mud
A poor man’s made outa muscle ’n blood
Muscle an’ blood an’ skin an’ bone
A mind that’s weak and a back that’s strong

You load sixteen tons an’ whaddya get?

If ya hear me a-comin’ ya better step aside
A lotta men din’t an’ a lotta men died
With one fist of iron an’ the other of steel
If the right one don’ getcha then the left one will

You load sixteen tons an’ whaddya get?
Another day older an’ deeper in debt
Saint Peter doncha call me ’cause I can’t go
I owe my soul to the company sto’

I was born one mornin’ when the sun didn’t shine
Picked up my shovel and I went to the mine
Loaded sixteen tons of number nine coal
And the straw boss said, “Well, Bless my soul!”

You load sixteen tons an’ whaddya get?
Another day older an’ deeper in debt
Saint Peter doncha call me ’cause I can’t go
I owe my soul to the company sto’

I was born one morning in the drizzlin’ rain
Fightin’ and trouble are my middle name
I was raised in the canebrake by an’ ol’ mama hound
Ain’t no high-tone woman gonna push me around

You load sixteen tons an’ whaddya get?
Another day older an’ deeper in debt
Saint Peter doncha call me ’cause I can’t go

Smoky Places

Meeting in smoky places
Hiding in shadowy corners
Dancing where no one knows our faces
Sharing love stolen in the night in smoky places

Oh, how I cried your wedding day
I thought my heart would break
Now you regret your wedding day
You’ve paid for your sad mistake

Meeting in smoky places
Hiding in shadowy corners
Dancing where no one knows our faces
Sharing love stolen in the night in smoky places

Some sunny day he will set you free
Free to be by my side
Some sunny day, Sweetheart, he’ll set you free
We’ll be satisfied

Meeting in smoky places
Hiding in shadowy corners
Dancing where no one knows our faces
Sharing love stolen in the night in smoky places

Sharing love stolen in the night in smoky places

Someday Soon

There’s a young man that I know
His age is twenty-one
He comes from down in Southern Colorado
He’s just out of the service
Looking for his fun
Someday soon going with him, someday soon

My parents cannot stand him
Cuz he rides the rodeo
My father says that he will leave me crying
But I will follow him right down
The roughest road I know
Someday soon going with him, someday soon

When he comes to call my pa, he ain’t got a good word to say
That’s cause he just as wild in the younger days

So blow you old blue northern
blow my love to me
He’s drivin’ in tonight from California
He loves his damn old rodeo
As much as he loves me
Someday soon going with him someday soon

Someday soon going with him someday soon

Stand By Your Man

Sometimes it’s hard to be a woman
Giving all your love to just one man
You’ll have bad times
And he’ll have good times
Doing things that you don’t understand

But if you love him you’ll forgive him
Even though he’s hard to understand
And if you love him
Oh be proud of him
Cause after all he’s just a man

Stand by your man
Give him two arms to cling to
And something warm to come to

When nights are cold and lonely
Stand by your man
And tell the world you love him
Keep giving all the love you can
Stand by your man

Stand by your man
And tell the world you love him
Keep giving all the love you can
Stand by your man

Suzanne

Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
You can hear the boats go by. You can spend the night beside her
And you know that she’s half crazy. But that’s why you want to be there
And she feeds you tea and oranges that come all the way from China
And just when you mean to tell her that you have no love to give her
Then she gets you on her wavelength, and she lets the river answer
That you’ve always been her lover

And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
And you know that she will trust you
For you’ve touched her perfect body with your mind

And Jesus was a sailor, when he walked upon the water
And he spent a long time watching from his lonely wooden tower
And when he knew for certain, only drowning men could see him
He said “All men will be sailors then until the sea shall free them”
But he himself was broken long before the sky would open
Forsaken, almost human, he sank beneath your wisdom like a stone

And you want to travel with him
And you want to travel blind
And you think maybe you’ll trust him
For he’s touched your perfect body with his mind

Now Suzanne takes your hand, and she leads you to the river
She is wearing rags and feathers from Salvation Army counters
And the sun pours down like honey on our lady of the harbour
And she shows you where to look among the garbage and the flowers
There are heroes in the seaweed. There are children in the morning
They are leaning out for love, and they will lean that way forever
While Suzanne holds the mirror

And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
And you know that she will trust you
For you’ve touched her perfect body with your mind

Sweet Betsy from Pike

Oh, don’t you remember sweet Besty from Pike?
Who crossed the wide prairie with her lover Ike
With two yoke of oxen, a big yaller dog
A tall Shanghai rooster and one spotted hog

One evening quite early they camped on the Platte
’Twas near by the road on a green shady flat
Where Betsy, sore-footed, lay down to repose
With wonder Ike gazed on that Pike county rose

The Shanghai ran off, and their cattle all died
That morning the last piece of bacon was fried
Poor Ike was discouraged and Betsy got mad
The dog drooped his tail and looked wondrously sad

They soon reached the desert where Betsy gave out
And down in the sand she lay rolling about
While Ike, half distracted, looked up with surprise
Saying, “Betsy, get up, you’ll get sand in your eyes.”

Sweet Betsy got up in a great deal of pain
Declared she’d go back to Pike county again
But Ike gave a sigh, and they fondly embraced
And they traveled along with his arm ’round her waist

Out on the prairie one bright starry night
They broke out the whisky and Betsy got tight
She sang and she shouted and danced o’er the plain
And made a great show for the whole wagon train

They swam the wide rivers and cross’d the tall peaks
And camped on the prairie for weeks upon weeks
Starvation and cholera and hard work and slaughter
They reached California spite of hell and high water

Long Ike and sweet Betsy attended a dance
Where Ike wore a pair of his Pike County pants
Sweet Betsey was covered with ribbons and rings
Said Ike, “You’re an angel, but where are your wings?”

Well, Ike, and sweet Betsy got married, of course
But Ike, getting jealous, obtained a divorce
And Betsy, well satisfied, said with a shout
“Good-bye, you big lummox, I’m glad you backed out.”

Sweet Violets

Sweet violets
Sweeter than all the roses
Covered all over from head to toe
Covered all over with sweet violets

There once was a farmer who took a young miss
In back of the barn where he gave her a lecture
On horses and chickens and eggs
And told her that she had such beautiful manners
That suited a girl of her charms
A girl that he wanted to take in his
Washing and ironing and then if she did
They could get married and raise lots of...

Sweet violets
Sweeter than all the roses
Covered all over from head to toe
Covered all over with sweet violets

The girl told the farmer that he’d better stop
And she called her father and he called a taxi
And got there before very long
’Cause someone was doin’ his little girl
Right for a change and so that’s why he said
“If you marry her son, you’re better off single
“’Cause it’s always been my belief
“Marriage will bring a man nothing but...”

Sweet violets
Sweeter than all the roses
Covered all over from head to toe
Covered all over with sweet violets

The farmer decided he’d wed anyway
And started in planning for his wedding suit
Which he purchased for only one buck
But then he found out he was just out of money
And so he got left in the lurch
Standin’ and waitin’ in front of the
End of the story which just goes to show
All a girl wants from a man is his...

Sweet violets
Sweeter than all the roses
Covered all over from head to toe
Covered all over with sweet violets

Swinging on a Star

Would you like to swing on a star
Carry moonbeams home in a jar
And be better off than you are
Or would you rather be a mule?

A mule is an animal with long funny ears
He kicks up at anything he hears
His back is brawny, but his brain is weak
He’s just plain stupid with a stubborn streak
And by the way, if you hate to go to school
You may grow up to be a mule

Or would you like to swing on a star
Carry moonbeams home in a jar
And be better off than you are
Or would you rather be a pig?

A pig is an animal with dirt on his face
His shoes are a terrible disgrace
He has no manners when he eats his food
He’s fat and lazy and extremely rude
But if you don’t care a feather or a fig
You may grow up to be a pig

Or would you like to swing on a star
Carry moonbeams home in a jar
And be better off than you are
Or would you rather be a fish?

A fish won’t do anything but swim in a brook
He can’t write his name or read a book
To fool the people is his only thought
And though he slippery, he still gets caught
But then if that sort of life is what you wish
You may grow up to be a fish

And all the monkeys aren’t in a zoo
Every day you meet quite a few
So you see it’s all up to you
You can be better than you are
You could be swinging on a star

Take Me Home, Country Roads

Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River
Life is old there, older than the trees
Younger than the mountains, growin’ like a breeze

Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain mama
Take me home, country roads

All my mem’ries gather ’round her
Miner’s lady, stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine, teardrop in my eye

Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain mama
Take me home, country roads

I hear her voice, in the mornin’ hour she calls me
Radio reminds me of my home far away
Drivin’ down the road I get the feelin’ that I
Should have been home yesterday, yesterday

Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain mama
Take me home, country roads

Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Take me out to the ball game
Take me out to the crowd
Buy me some peanuts and Crackerjacks

For it’s one, two, three strikes you’re out
At the old ball game!

A Teenager in Love

Each time we have a quarrel
It almost breaks my heart
Cause I’m so afraid
that we will have to part
Each night I ask the stars up above
Why must I be a teenager in love?

One day I feel so happy
Next day I feel so sad
I guess I’ll learn to take
The good with the bad
Each night I ask the stars up above
Why must I be a teenager in love?

I cried a tear for nobody but you
I’ll be a lonely one, if you should say we’re through

Well, if you want to make me cry
That won’t be so hard to do
And if you should say goodbye
I’ll still go on loving you
Each night I ask the stars up above
Why must I be a teenager in love?

I cried a tear for nobody but you
I’ll be a lonely one, if you should say we’re through

Well, if you want to make me cry
That won’t be so hard to do
And if you should say goodbye
I’ll still go on loving you
Each night I ask the stars up above
Why must I be a teenager in love?

Why must I be a teenager in love?
Why must I be a teenager in love?
Why must I be a teenager in love?

Tell Him

I know something about love. You gotta want it bad
If that guy’s got into your blood, go out and get him
If you want him to be the very part of you
Makes you want to breathe, here’s the thing to do

Tell him that you’re never gonna leave him
Tell him that you’re always gonna love him
Tell him, tell him, tell him, tell him right now

I know something about love. You gotta show him
Make him see the moon up above, go out and get him
If you want him to make your heart sing out
If you want him to only think of you

Tell him that you’re never gonna leave him
Tell him that you’re always gonna love him
Tell him, tell him, tell him, tell him right now

Ever since the world began It’s been that way for men
And women were created to make love their destiny
Then why should true love be so complicated, oh, yeah

I know something about love. You’ve got to take him
Show him what the world is made of. One kiss could prove it
If you want him to be always by your side
Take his hand tonight, swallow your foolish pride

Tell him that you’re never gonna leave him
Tell him that you’re always gonna love him
Tell him, tell him, tell him, tell him right now

When an old friend I happened to see

Yes I lost my little darling the night they were playing

In Napoli where love is king, when boy meets girl
Here’s what they say

When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie
That’s amore (That’s amore)
When the world seems to shine like you’ve had too much wine
That’s amore (That’s amore)
Bells will ring tin-a-ling-aling, tin-a-ling-aling
And you’ll sing, “Vita bella!”
Hearts will play tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay, like a gay tarantella
When the stars make you drool just like a pasta fazool
That’s amore (That’s amore)
When you dance down the street with a cloud at your feet
You’re in love
When you walk in a dream but you know you’re not dreaming signore
Scuzza me, but you see, back in old Napoli
That’s amore

Kiss me each morning for a million years
Hold me each evening by your side
Tell me you’ll love me for a million years

Sweeten my coffee with a morning kiss
Soften my dreams with your sighs
Tell me you’ll love me for a million years
Then if it don’t work out, Then if it don’t work out
Then you can tell me goodbye

If you must go, oh no, I won’t grieve
If you wait a lifetime before you leave

Just so that we can say we tried
Tell me you’ll love me for a million years
Then if it don’t work out, Then if it don’t work out
Then you can tell me goodbye

This Land Is Your Land

This land is your land, this land is my land
From California, to the New York Island
From the redwood forest, to the gulf stream waters
This land was made for you and me

As I was walking a ribbon of highway
I saw above me an endless skyway
I saw below me a golden valley
This land was made for you and me

This land is your land, this land is my land
From California, to the New York Island
From the redwood forest, to the gulf stream waters
This land was made for you and me

I’ve roamed and rambled and I’ve followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
And all around me a voice was sounding
“This land was made for you and me”

This land is your land, this land is my land
From California, to the New York Island
From the redwood forest, to the gulf stream waters
“This land was made for you and me”

The sun comes shining as I was strolling
The wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling
The fog was lifting a voice come chanting
“This land was made for you and me”

This land is your land, this land is my land
From California, to the New York Island
From the redwood forest, to the gulf stream waters
This land was made for you and me

As I was walkin’ I saw a sign there
And that sign said, no tresspassin’
But on the other side, it didn’t say nothin
Now that side was made for you and me

This land is your land, this land is my land
From California, to the New York Island
From the redwood forest, to the gulf stream waters
This land was made for you and me

In the squares of the city, in the shadow of the steeple
Near the relief office, I see my people
And some are grumblin’ and some are wonderin’
If this land’s still made for you and me

This land is your land, this land is my land
From California, to the New York Island
From the redwood forest, to the gulf stream waters
This land was made for you and me

This Magic Moment

This magic moment, so different and so new
Was like any other until I kissed you
And then it happened, it took me by surprise
I knew that you felt it too, by the look in your eyes

Sweeter than wine, softer than the summer night
Everything I want, I have whenever I hold you tight

This magic moment while your lips are close to mine
Will last forever, forever till the end of time
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh. Mm-mm-mm-mm-mm

Sweeter than wine, softer than the summer night
Everything I want, I have whenever I hold you tight

This magic moment while your lips are close to mine
Will last forever, forever till the end of time
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh. Mm-mm-mm-mm-mm

Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh

Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport

There’s an old Australian stockman lying, dying
And he gets himself up onto one elbow and he turns to his mates
Who are all gathered around and he says

Watch me wallabies feed, mate
Watch me wallabies feed
They’re a dangerous breed, mate
So watch me wallabies feed

Altogether now
Tie me kangaroo down, sport
Tie me kangaroo down
Tie me kangaroo down, sport
Tie me kangaroo down

Keep me cockatoo cool, Curl
Keep me cockatoo cool
Don’t go acting the fool, Curl
Just keep me cockatoo cool

Take me koala back, Jack
Take me koala back
He lives somewhere out on the track, Jack
So take me koala back

Let me abos go loose, Lou
Let me abos go loose
There of no further use, Lou
So let me abos go loose

Mind me platypus duck, Bill
Mind me platypus duck
Don’t let him go running amok, Bill
Just mind me platypus duck

Play your didgeridoo, Blue
Play your didgeridoo
Keep playing till I shoot through, Blue
Play your didgeridoo

Tan me hide when I’m dead, Fred
Tan me hide when I’m dead
So we tanned his hide when he died, Clyde
And that’s it hanging on the shed

Tom Dooley

Hang down your head, Tom Dooley
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Tom Dooley
Poor boy, you’re bound to die

I met her on the mountain
There I took her life
Met her on the mountain
Stabbed her with my knife

Hang down your head, Tom Dooley
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Tom Dooley
Poor boy, you’re bound to die

’Round this time tomorrow
Reckon where I’ll be
Down in some lonesome valley
Hanging from a white oak tree

Hang down your head, Tom Dooley
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Tom Dooley
Poor boy, you’re bound to die

Toot, Toot, Tootsie

Toot, toot, Tootsie, good-bye!
Toot, toot, Tootsie, don’t cry
The choo choo train that takes me
Away from you, no words can tell how sad it makes me
Kiss me, Tootsie, and then, do it over again

Watch for the mail, I’ll never fail
If you don’t get a letter, then you’ll know I’m in jail

Toot, toot, Tootsie don’t cry
Toot, toot, Tootsie, good-bye

Travelin’ Man

I’m a travelin’ man, made a lot of stops
All over the world
And in every port I own the heart
Of at least one lovely girl

I’ve a pretty señorita waiting for me
Down in old Mexico
If you’re ever in Alaska stop and see
My cute little Eskimo

Oh my sweet Fräulein down in Berlin town
Makes my heart start to yearn
And my China doll down in old Hong Kong
Waits for my return

Pretty Polynesian baby over the sea
I remember the night
When we walked in the sands of the Waikiki
And I held you oh so tight

Oh my sweet Fräulein down in Berlin town
Makes my heart start to yearn
And my China doll down in old Hong Kong
Waits for my return

Pretty Polynesian baby over the sea
I remember the night
When we walked in the sands of the Waikiki
And I held you oh so tight

Oh, I’m a travelin’ man. Yes, I’m a travelin’ man

Song List


Try a Little Tenderness

She may be weary
Women do get weary
Wearing that same shabby dress
And when she’s weary
Try a little tenderness

You know she’s waiting
Just anticipating
Things she may never possess
While she’s without them
Try a little tenderness

It’s not just sentimental
She has her grief and care
And a word that’s soft and gentle
Makes it easier to bear

You won’t regret it
Women don’t forget it
Love is their whole happiness
It’s all so easy
Try a little tenderness

Song List


Try to Remember

Try to remember the kind of September
When life was slow and oh, so mellow
Try to remember the kind of September
When grass was green and grain was yellow
Try to remember the kind of September
When you were a tender and callow fellow
Try to remember, and if you remember
Then follow, follow, follow
Follow, follow, follow
Follow, follow, follow, follow

Try to remember when life was so tender
That no one wept except the willow
Try to remember when life was so tender
That dreams were kept beside your pillow
Try to remember when life was so tender
That love was an ember about to billow
Try to remember, and if you remember
Then follow, follow, follow
Follow, follow, follow
Follow, follow, follow, follow

Deep in December, it’s nice to remember
Although you know the snow will follow
Deep in December, it’s nice to remember
Without a hurt the heart is hollow
Deep in December, it’s nice to remember
The fire of September that made us mellow
Deep in December, our hearts should remember
And follow

Tumbling Tumbleweeds

See them tumbling down
Pledging their love to the ground
Lonely, but free, I’ll be found
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds

Cares of the past are behind
Nowhere to go, but I’ll find
Just where the trail will wind
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds

I know when night has gone
That a new world’s born at dawn

I’ll keep rolling along
Deep in my heart is a song
Here on the range I belong
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds

I know when night has gone
That a new world’s born at dawn

I’ll keep rolling along
Deep in my heart is a song
Here on the range I belong
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds

Turn, Turn, Turn

To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time to every purpose under heaven

A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep

To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time to every purpose under heaven

A time to build up, a time to break down
A time to dance, a time to mourn
A time to cast away stones
A time to gather stones together

To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time to every purpose under heaven

A time of love, a time of hate
A time of war, a time of peace
A time you may embrace
A time to refrain from embracing

To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time to every purpose under heaven

A time to gain, a time to lose
A time to rend, a time to sew
A time for love, a time for hate
A time for peace, I swear it’s not too late

Twlight Time

Heavenly shades of night are falling. It’s twilight time
Out of the mist your voice is calling. it’s twilight time
When purple colored curtains mark the end of day
I hear you, my dear, at twilight time

Deepening shadows gather splendor as day is done
Fingers of night will soon surrender the setting sun
I count the moments, darling, till you’re here with me
Together at last at twilight time

Here in the after glow of day
We keep our rendezvous beneath the blue
And in the sweet and same old way
I fall in love again as I did then

Deep in the dark your kiss will thrill me, like days of old
Lighting the spark of love that fills me with dreams untold
Each day I pray for evening just to be with you
Together at last at twilight time

Here in the after glow of day
We keep our rendezvous beneath the blue
And in the sweet and same old way
I fall in love again as I did then

Deep in the dark your kiss will thrill me, like days of old
Lighting the spark of love that fills me with dreams untold
Each day I pray for evening just to be with you
Together at last at twilight time
Together at last at twilight time

Unchained Melody

Oh, my love, my darling
I’ve hungered for your touch
A long lonely time
And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine
I need your love, I need your love
God speed your love to me

Lonely rivers flow to the sea to the sea
To the open arms of the sea
Lonely rivers sigh, “Wait for me wait for me
“I’ll be coming home wait for me”

Oh, my love, my darling
I’ve hungered for your touch
A long lonely time
And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine
I need your love, I need your love
God speed your love to me

Uncle John’s Band

Well the first days are the hardest days, don’t you worry any more
’Cause when life looks like easy street, there is danger at your door
Think this through with me, let me know your mind
Woah-oh, what I want to know, is are you kind?

It’s a buck dancer’s choice my friend better take my advice
You know all the rules by now and the fire from the ice
Will you come with me? Won’t you come with me?
Woah-oh, what I want to know, will you come with me?

Goddamn, well I declare, have you seen the like
Their walls are built of cannonballs, their motto is don’t tread on me
Come hear Uncle John’s Band playing to the tide
Come with me, or go alone, he’s come to take his children home

It’s the same story the crow told me; it’s the only one he knows
Like the morning sun you come and like the wind you go
Ain’t no time to hate, barely time to wait
Woah-oh, what I want to know, where does the time go?

I live in a silver mine and I call it “Beggar’s Tomb”
I got me a violin and I beg you call the tune
Anybody’s choice, I can hear your voice
Woah-oh, what I want to know, how does the song go

Come hear Uncle John’s Band by the riverside
Got some things to talk about, here beside the rising tide
Come hear Uncle John’s Band playing to the tide
Come on along, or go alone, he’s come to take his children home

Woah-oh, what I want to know, how does the song go?

Come hear Uncle John’s Band by the riverside
Got some things to talk about, here beside the rising tide
Come hear Uncle John’s Band playing to the tide
Come on along, or go alone, he’s come to take his children home

Under the Boardwalk

Oh, when the sun beats down and melts the tar up on the roof
And your shoes get so hot, you wish your tired feet were fireproof
Under the boardwalk, down by sea
On a blanket with my baby, that’s where I’ll be

From the park you hear the happy sounds of the carousel
You can almost taste the hotdogs and French fries they sell
Under the boardwalk, down by sea
On a blanket with my baby, that’s where I’ll be

Under the boardwalk, out of the sun
Under the boardwalk, we’ll be having fun
Under the boardwalk, people walking above
Under the boardwalk, we’ll be falling in love
Under the boardwalk, boardwalk

Oh, when the sun beats down and melts the tar up on the roof
And your shoes get so hot, you wish your tired feet were fireproof
Under the boardwalk, down by sea
On a blanket with my baby, that’s where I’ll be

Up on Cripple Creek

When I get off of this mountain
You know where I wanna go
Straight down the Mississippi River
To the Gulf of Mexico
To Lake George, Louisiana
Little Bessie, girl I once knew
And she told me just to come on by
If there’s anything she could do

Up on Cripple Creek, she sends me
If I spring a leak, she mends me
I don’t have to speak, she defends me
A drunkard’s dream if I ever did see one

Good luck had just stung me
To the race track I did go
She bet on one horse to win
And I bet on another to show
The odds were in my favor
I had him five to one
And that nag to win came around the track
Sure enough we had won

Up on Cripple Creek, she sends me
If I spring a leak, she mends me
I don’t have to speak, she defends me
A drunkard’s dream if I ever did see one

I took up all of my winnings
And I gave my little Bessie half
And she tore it up and blew it in my face
Just for a laugh
Now there’s one thing in the whole wide world
I sure would like to see
That’s when that little love of mine
Dips her doughnut in my tea

Up on Cripple Creek, she sends me
If I spring a leak, she mends me
I don’t have to speak, she defends me
A drunkard’s dream if I ever did see one

Now me and my mate were back at the shack
We had Spike Jones on the box
She said, “I can’t take the way he sings
But I love to hear him talk“
Now that just gave my heart a throb
To the bottom of my feet
And I swore as I took another pull
My Bessie can’t be beat

Up on Cripple Creek, she sends me
If I spring a leak, she mends me
I don’t have to speak, she defends me
A drunkard’s dream if I ever did see one

Lo lo who
Lo-di-lo-di-lo-di who

There’s a flood out in California
And up north it’s freezing cold
And this living off the road
Is getting pretty old
So I guess I’ll call up my big mama
Tell her I’ll be rolling in
But you know, deep down, I’m kinda tempted
To go and see my Bessie again

Up on Cripple Creek, she sends me
If I spring a leak, she mends me
I don’t have to speak, she defends me
A drunkard’s dream if I ever did see one

Lo lo who
Lo-di-lo-di-lo-di who

Up on the Roof

When this old world starts getting me down
And people are just too much for me to face
I climb way up to the top of the stairs
And all my cares just drift right into space

On the roof, it’s peaceful as can be
And there the world below can’t bother me
Let me tell you now

When I come home feelin’ tired and beat
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet (up on the roof)
I get away from the hustling crowd
And all that rat-race noise down in the street (up on the roof)

On the roof, the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so
Let’s go up on the roof (up on the roof)
At night the stars put on a show for free
And, darling, you can share it all with me

I keep a-tellin’ you
Right smack dab in the middle of town
I’ve found a paradise that’s trouble proof (up on the roof)
And if this world starts getting you down
There’s room enough for two
Up on the roof (up on the roof)

The Very Thought of You

The very thought of you
And I forget to do
The little ordinary things
That everyone ought to do

I’m living in a kind of daydream
I’m happy as a king
And foolish though it may seem
To me that’s everything

The mere idea of you
The longing here for you
You’ll never know how slow the moments go
Till I’m near to you

I see your face in every flower
Your eyes in stars above
It’s just the thought of you
The very thought of you, my love

Volare

Volare. Oh, oh. Cantare. Oh, oh, oh.

Let’s fly way up to the clouds
Away from the maddening crowds

Where lovers enjoy peace of mind
Let us leave the confusion and all disillusion behind
Just like birds of a feather, a rainbow together we’ll find

Volare. Oh, oh. Cantare. Oh, oh, oh.

No wonder my happy heart sings
Your love has given me wings
Your love has given me wings

Walk Right Back

I want you to tell me why you walked out on me
I’m so lonesome every day
I want you to know that since you walked out on me
Nothin’ seems to be the same old way
Think about the love that burns within my heart for you
The good times we had before you went away

Walk right back to me this minute
Bring your love to me, don’t send it
I’m so lonesome every day

I want you to tell me why you walked out on me
I’m so lonesome every day
I want you to know that since you walked out on me
Nothin’ seems to be the same old way
Think about the love that burns within my heart for you
The good times we had before you went away

Walk right back to me this minute
Bring your love to me, don’t send it

I’m so lonesome every day
I’m so lonesome every day

The Way You Look Tonight

Some day when I’m awfully low
And the world is cold
I will feel a glow just thinking of you
And the way you look tonight

Oh, but you’re lovely with your smile so warm
and your cheeks so soft
There is nothing for me but to love you
And the way you look tonight

With each word your tenderness grows
Tearing my fear apart
And that laugh that wrinkles your nose
Touches my foolish heart

Lovely, never never change
Keep that breathless charm
Won’t you please arrange it, cuz I love you
Just the way you look tonight

Just the way you look tonight

The Way You Do the Things You Do

You got a smile so bright
You know you could’ve been a candle
I’m holding you so tight
You know you could’ve been a handle
The way you swept me off my feet
You know you could’ve been a broom
The way you smell so sweet
You know you could’ve been some perfume
Well you could’ve been anything that you wanted to
And I can tell
The way you do the things you do
(The way you do the things you do)
Aw, baby
(The way you do the things you do)

As pretty as you are
You know you could’ve been a flower
If good looks was a minute
You know that you could be an hour
The way you stole my heart
You know you could have been a cool crook
And baby you’re so smart
You know you could have been a school book
Well you could’ve been anything that you wanted to
And I can tell
The way you do the things you do
(The way you do the things you do)
Aw, baby

You make my life so rich
You know you could’ve been some money
And baby you’re so sweet
You know you could have been some honey
Well you could’ve been anything that you wanted to
And I can tell
The way you do the things you do
(The way you do the things you do)
You really swept me off my feet
(The way you do the things you do)
You made my life complete
(The way you do the things you do)
You made my life so bright
(The way you do the things you do)
You make me feel all right

You make me feel all right

The Weight

I pulled in to Nazareth, I was feeling about half past dead
I just need some place where I can lay my head
“Hey, Mister, can you tell me where a man might find a bed?”
He just grinned, shook my hand, “No” was all he said

Take a load off, Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off, Fanny
And... you put the load right on me

I picked up my bag. I went looking for a place to hide
When I saw Carmen and the devil walking side by side
I said, “Hey, Carmen, come on. Let’s go downtown.”
She said, “I got to go, but my friend can stick around.”

Take a load off, Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off, Fanny
And... you put the load right on me

Go down, Miss Moses, there’s nothing you can say
It’s just old Luke, and Luke’s waiting on the judgement day
“Well, Luke, my friend, what about young Anna Lee?”
He said, “Do me a favor, son. Won’t you stay and keep Anna Lee company?”

Take a load off, Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off, Fanny
And... you put the load right on me

Crazy Chester followed me and he caught me in the fog
He said, “I will fix your rack, if you’ll take Jack my dog.”
I said,”Wait a minute, Chester. You know I’m a peaceful man.”
He said, “That’s okay, boy. Won’t you feed him when you can?”

Take a load off, Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off, Fanny
And... you put the load right on me

Get your Canonball now, to take me down the line
My bag is sinking low, and I do believe it’s time
To get back to Miss Fanny. You know she’s the only one
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone

Take a load off, Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off, Fanny
And... you put the load right on me

What a Wonderful World

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright, blessed day and the dark, sacred night
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people goin’ by
I see friends shaking hands
Saying, “How do you do?”
They’re really saying, “I love you.”

I hear babies cry, I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more than I’ll ever know
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

Yes, I think to myself, what a wonderful world

What’ll I Do

What’ll I do when you are far away
And I’m blue, what’ll I do?

What’ll I do when I am wondering who
Is kissing you, what’ll I do?

To tell my troubles to?

When I’m alone with only dreams of you
That won’t come true, what’ll I do?

What’ll I do with just a photograph
To tell my troubles to?

When I’m alone with only dreams of you
That won’t come true, what’ll I do?

What’s He Doing in My World?

What’s he doing in my world?
What’s he doing holding my world?
If he’s not more than just friend
Why were you kissing him?
And what’s he doing in my world?

What’s he doing in my world?
Did you tell him that you’re my girl?
If your love is really true
Tell him my world’s made for two
And what’s he doing in my world?

Oh, don’t let me keep on wondering
Just what you’re gonna do
Wondering if the one I love
Loves somebody new

What’s he doing in my world?
We don’t need him in our world
So if it’s true he’s just a friend
Explain those kisses you gave him
And what’s he doing in my world?

What’s your name? Do I stand a chance with you?

When a Man Loves a Woman

When a man loves a woman, can’t keep his mind on nothin’ else
He’d trade the world for the good thing he’s found
If she is bad, he can’t see it, she can do no wrong
Turn his back on his best friend if he put her down

When a man loves a woman, spend his very last dime
Tryin’ to hold on to what he needs
He’d give up all his comforts and sleep out in the rain
If she says that’s the way it ought to be

Well, this man loves you, woman
I gave you everything I had
Tryin’ to hold on to your high class love
Baby, please don’t treat me bad

When a man loves a woman, down deep in his soul
She can bring him such misery
If she plays him for a fool, he’s the last one to know
Lovin’ eyes can never see

When a man loves a woman, he can do her no wrong
He can never hold some other girl
When a man loves a woman, I know exactly how he feels
’Cause baby, baby, you’re my world

When a man loves a woman, I know exactly how he feels
’Cause baby, baby, you’re my world

Whispering while you cuddle near me
Whispering so no one can hear me
Each little whisper seems to cheer me
I know it’s true, there’s no one, dear, but you

You’re whispering why you’ll never leave me
Whispering why you’ll never grieve me
Whisper an say that you believe me
Whispering that I love you

Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?

Tonight you’re mine completely
You give your love so sweetly
Tonight the light of love is in your eyes
But will you love me tomorrow?

Is this a lasting treasure
Or just a moment’s pleasure?
Tonight I believe the magic of you sigh
Will you still love me tomorrow?

Tonight with words unspoken
You said that I’m the only one
But will my heart be broken
When the night meets the morning sun

I’d like to know that your love
Is love I can be sure of
So tell me now and I won’t ask again
Will you still love me tomorrow?

So tell me now and I won’t ask again
Will you still love me tomorrow?
Will you still love me tomorrow?

Winchester Cathedral

Winchester Cathedral, you’re bringing me down
You stood and you watched as my baby left town

You could have done something, but you didn’t try
You didn’t do nothing, you let her walk by

Now everyone knows just how much I needed that gal
She wouldn’t have gone far away
If only you’d started ringing your bell

Winchester Cathedral, you’re bringing me down
You stood and you watched as my baby left town

Oh bo dee oh doh, oh bo de

With a Little Bit of Luck

The Lord above gave man an arm of iron
So he could do his job and never shirk
The Lord above gave man an arm of iron, but
With a little bit of luck, with a little bit of luck
Someone else will do the blinkin’ work

With a little bit, Wwith a little bit
With a little bit of luck you’ll never work

Oh, you can walk the straight and narrow
But with a little bit of luck you’ll run amok

The gentle sex was made for man to marry
To tend his needs and see his food is cooked
The gentle sex was made for man to marry, but
With a little bit of luck, with a little bit of luck
You can have it all and not get hooked

With a little bit, with a little bit
With a little bit of luck you’ll never work

With a little bit, with a little bit
With a little bit of blooming luck

With a Little Help From My Friends

What would you do if I sang out of tune?
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song
And I’ll try not to sing out of key

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends

What do I do when my love is away
(Does it worry you to be alone?)
How do I feel by the end of the day
(Are you sad because you’re on your own?)

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends

(Do you need anybody?)
I need somebody to love
(Could it be anybody?)
I want somebody to love

(Would you believe in a love at first sight?)
Yes, I’m certain that it happens all the time
(What do you see when you turn out the light?)
I can’t tell you but I know it’s mine

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends

(Do you need anybody?)
I need somebody to love
(Could it be anybody?)
I want somebody to love

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends

Wolverton Mountain

They say don’t go on Wolverton Mountain
If you’re looking for a wife
Cause Clifton Clowers has a pretty young daughter
He’s mighty handy with a gun and a knife

Her tender lips (Her tender lips) Are sweeter than honey
And Wolverton Mountain protects her there
The bears and the birds tell Clifton Clowers
If a stranger should enter there

All of my dreams are on Wolverton Mountain
I want his daughter for my wife
I’ll take my chances and climb that mountain
Though Clifton Clowers he might take my life

Her tender lips (Her tender lips) Are sweeter than honey
And Wolverton Mountain protects her there
The bears and the birds tell Clifton Clowers
If a stranger should enter there

I’m going up on Wolverton Mountain
It’s too lonesome down here below
It’s just not right to hide his daughter
From the one who loves her so

Her tender lips (Her tender lips) Are sweeter than honey
And Wolverton Mountain protects her there
The bears and the birds tell Clifton Clowers
If a stranger should enter there

But I don’t care about Clifton Clowers
I’m gonna climb up on his mountain
I’m gonna take the girl I love
I don’t care about Clifton Clowers
I’m gonna climb up on that mountain
And I’ll get the one I love
I don’t care about Clifton Clowers

Wonderful World

Don’t know much about history
Don’t know much biology
Don’t know much about a science book
Don’t know much about the French I took

But I do know that I love you
And I know that if you love me too
What a wonderful world this would be

Don’t know much about geography
Don’t know much trigonometry
Don’t know much about algebra
Don’t know what a slide rule is for

But I do know that I love you
And I know that if you love me too
What a wonderful world this would be

Now, I don’t claim, to be an A-student
But I’m trying to be
For maybe by being an A-student, baby
I could win your love for me

Don’t know much about history
Don’t know much biology
Don’t know much about a science book
Don’t know much about the French I took

But I do know that I love you
And I know that if you love me too
What a wonderful world this would be

Wouldn’t It Be Loverly

All I want is a room somewhere
Far away from the cold night air
With one enormous chair
Oh, wouldn’t it be loverly?

Lots of chocolate for me to eat
Lots of coal makin’ lots of heat
Warm face, warm hands, warm feet
Oh, wouldn’t it be loverly?

Oh, so lovely sittin’
Abso-bloomin’-lutely still
I would never budge till spring
Crept over me window sill

Someone’s head restin’ on my knee
Warm and tender as he can be
Who takes good care of me
Oh, wouldn’t it be loverly?

Loverly, loverly, loverly, loverly

Yellow Bird

Yellow bird, up high in banana tree
Yellow bird, you sit all alone like me

Did your lady friend leave the nest again?
That is very sad, make me feel so bad
You can fly away, in the sky away
You more lucky than me

I also have a pretty girl
She not with me today
They all the same, the pretty girls
Take tenderness, then they fly away

Yellow bird, up high in banana tree
Yellow bird, you sit all alone like me

Better fly away, in the sky away
Picker coming soon, pick from night to noon
Black on yellow you, like banana too
They might pick you someday

Wish that I was a yellow bird
I fly away with you
But I am not a yellow bird
So here I sit, nothing else to do

Yellow bird, up high in banana tree
Yellow bird, you sit all alone like me

Yellow bird, yellow bird

Yellow Rose of Texas

There’s a yellow rose in Texas that I am gonna see
Nobody else could miss her not half as much as me
She cried so when I left her, it was like it broke her heart
And if I ever find her we never more will part

She’s the sweetest little rose bud that Texas ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew
You may talk about your Clementine and sing of Rosa Lee
But the yellow rose of Texas is the only girl for me

Where the Rio Grande is flowing and the starry skies are bright
She walks along the river in the quiet summer night
I know that she remembers when we parted long ago
I promise to return and not to leave her so

She’s the sweetest little rose bud that Texas ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew
You may talk about your Clementine and sing of Rosa Lee
But the yellow rose of Texas is the only girl for me

Now I’m-a gonna find her for my heart is full of woe
We’ll do the things together we did so long ago
We’ll play the banjo gaily, she’ll love me like before
And the yellow rose of Texas shall be mine forever more

She’s the sweetest little rose bud that Texas ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew
You may talk about your Clementine and sing of Rosa Lee
But the yellow rose of Texas is the only girl for me

Yellow Submarine

In the town where I was born
Lived a man who sailed to sea
And he told us of his life
In the land of submarines

So we sailed off to the sun
Till we found the sea of green
And we lived beneath the waves
In our yellow submarine

We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine

And our friends are all on board
Many more of them live next door
And the band begins to play. . .

We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine

As we live a life of ease
Everyone of us has all we need
Sky of blue and sea of green
In our yellow submarine

We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine

Yesterday

Yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away
Now I need a place to hide away
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 some- thing 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
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

Young man, there’s no need to feel down
I said, young man, pick yourself off the ground
I said, young man, ’cause you’re in a new town
There’s no need to be unhappy

Young man, there’s a place you can go
I said, young man, when you’re short on your dough
You can stay there, and I’m sure you will find
Many ways to have a good time

It’s fun to stay at the YMCA
It’s fun to stay at the YMCA
They have everything for young men to enjoy
You can hang out with all the boys

It’s fun to stay at the YMCA
It’s fun to stay at the YMCA
You can get yourself clean, you can have a good meal
You can do what ever you feel

Young man, are you listening to me?
I said, young man, what do you want to be?
I said, young man, you can make real your dreams
But you got to know this one thing

No man does it all by himself
I said, young man, put your pride on the shelf
And just go there, to the YMCA
I’m sure they can help you today

It’s fun to stay at the YMCA
It’s fun to stay at the YMCA
They have everything for young men to enjoy
You can hang out with all the boys

It’s fun to stay at the YMCA
It’s fun to stay at the YMCA
You can get yourself clean, you can have a good meal
You can do what ever you feel

Young man, I was once in your shoes
I said, I was down and out with the blues
I felt no man cared if I were alive
I felt the whole world was so tight

That’s when someone came up to me
And said, young man, take a walk up the street
There’s a place there called the YMCA
They can start you back on your way

It’s fun to stay at the YMCA
It’s fun to stay at the YMCA
They have everything for young men to enjoy
You can hang out with all the boys

YMCA, it’s fun to stay at the YMCA
Young man, young man, there’s no need to feel down
Young man, young man, pick yourself off the ground

YMCA, it’s fun to stay at the YMCA
Young man, young man, are you listening to me
Young man, young man, what do you wanna be?

YMCA, you’ll find it at the YMCA
No man, young man, does it all by himself
Young man, young man, put your pride on the shelf

YMCA, and just go to the YMCA
Young man, young man I was once in your shoes
Young man, young man I was down with the blues

You Always Hurt the One You Love

You always hurt the one you love
The one you shouldn’t hurt at all
You always take the sweetest rose
And crush it till the petals fall
You always break the kindest heart
With a hasty word you can’t recall
So if I broke your heart last night
It’s because I love you most of all

You Are My Sunshine

The other night dear, as I lay sleeping
I dreamed I held you in my arms
But when I awoke, dear, I was mistaken
So I hung my head and I cried

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You’ll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away

I’ll always love you and make you happy
If you will only say the same
But if you leave me and love another
You’ll regret it all some day

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You’ll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away

You told me once, dear, you really loved me
And no one else could come between
But now you’ve left me and love another
You have shattered all of my dreams

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You’ll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away

In all my dreams, dear, you seem to leave me
When I awake my poor heart pains
So when you come back and make me happy
I’ll forgive you dear, I’ll take all the blame

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You’ll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away

You Belong to Me

See the pyramids along the Nile
Watch the sunset on a tropic isle
Just remember darlin’ all the while
You belong to me

See the marketplace in Old Algiers
Send me photographs and souvenirs
Just remember when a dream appears
You belong to me

I’ll be so alone without you
Maybe you’ll be lonesome too, and blue

Fly the ocean in a silver plane
See the jungle when it’s wet with rain
Just remember till you’re home again
You belong to me

You Can’t Always Get What You Want

I saw her today at the reception
A glass of wine in her hand
I knew she was gonna meet her connection
At her feet was footloose man

You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you just might find
You get what you need

I went down to the demonstration
To get my fair share of abuse
Singing, “We’re gonna vent our frustration
“If we don’t we’re gonna blow a fifty-amp fuse”

You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you just might find
You get what you need

I went down to the Chelsea drugstore
To get your prescription filled
I was standing in line with Mr. Jimmy
And man, did he look pretty ill
We decided that we would have a soda
My favorite flavor, cherry red
I sung my song to Mr. Jimmy.
Yeah, and he said one word to me
And that was “dead.” I said to him

You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you just might find
You get what you need

I saw her today at the reception
In her glass was a bleeding man
She was practiced at the art of deception
Well I could tell by her blood-stained hands

You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you just might find
You get what you need

You Don’t Know Me

You give your hand to me
And then you say hello
And I can hardly speak
My heart is beating so
And anyone can tell
You think you know me well
But you don’t know me (no you don’t know me)

No you don’t know the one
Who dreams of you at night
And longs to kiss your lips
Longs to hold you tight
Oh I am just a friend
That’s all I’ve ever been
Cause you don’t know me (no you don’t know me)

I never knew the art of making love
No my heart aches with love for you
Afraid and shy I let my chance go by
The chance that you might love me too (love me too)

You give your hand to me
And then you say goodbye
I watch you walk away beside the lucky guy
Oh you will never know
The one who loves you so
Well you don’t know me

I never knew the art of making love
No my heart aches with love for you
Afraid and shy I let my chance go by
The chance that you might love me too (love me too)

You give your hand to me
And then you say goodbye
I watch you walk away beside the lucky guy
Oh you will never know
The one who loves you so
Well you don’t know me

You Win Again

The news is out, all over town
That you’ve been seen, a-runnin’ ’round
I know that I should leave, but then
I just can’t go, you win again
This heart of mine, could never see
What everybody knew but me
Just trusting you was my great sin
What can I do? you win again

I’m sorry for your victim now
’Cause soon his head, like mine will bow
He’ll give his heart, but all in vain
And someday say, you win again
You have no heart, you have no shame
You take true love, and give the blame
I guess that I, should not complain
I love you still, you win again

When tears come down like falling rain
You’ll toss around and call my name
You’ll walk the floor the way I do
Your cheatin’ heart will tell on you

Your cheatin’ heart will pine some day
And crave the love you threw away
The time will come when you’ll be blue
Your cheatin’ heart will tell on you

When tears come down like falling rain
You’ll toss around and call my name
You’ll walk the floor the way I do
Your cheatin’ heart will tell on you

Your cheatin’ heart will tell on you
