For Once In My Life
Ron Miller / Orlando Murden // 1967

For once in my life I got someone who needs me
Someone I've needed for so long
For once unafraid I can go where life leads me
Somehow I know I'm gonna be strong

For once I can touch
What my heart used to dream of long before I knew
Someone warm like you
Could make my dreams, make them all come true

For once in my life I won't let sorrow hurt me
Not like it hurt me once before
For once I got someone I know won't desert me
I'm not alone anymore

For once I can say, "This is mine you can't take it"
Long as there's love I know that I'm gonna make it
For once in my life I got someone who needs me

Time After Time
Jule Styne / Sammy Cahn // 1947

Time after time
I tell myself that I'm
So lucky to be loving you

So lucky to be
The one you run to see
In the evening, when the day is through

I only know what I know
The passing years will show
You've kept my love so young, so new

And time after time
You'll hear me say that I'm
So lucky to be loving you

I only know what I know
The passing years will show
You've kept my love so young, so new

And time after time
You'll hear me say that I'm
So lucky to be loving you

Love Is Here To Stay
Ira Gershwin / George Gershwin // 1938

It's very clear
Our love is here to stay
Not for a year, but forever and a day

The radio
And the telephone
And the movies that we know
May just be passing fancies and in time may go

But oh my dear
Our love is here to stay
Together we're going a long long way

In time the Rockies may crumble
Gibraltar may tumble
They're only made of clay
But our love is here to stay

The Nearness Of You
Ned Washington/Hoagy Carmichael // 1938

It's not the pale moon that excites me
That thrills and delights me, oh no
It's just the nearness of you

It isn't your sweet conversation
That brings this sensation, oh no
It's just the nearness of you

When youre in my arms
And I feel you so close to me
All my wildest dreams come true

I need no soft lights to enchant me
If you'll only grant me
The right to hold you ever so tight
And to feel in the night, the nearness of you

Pennies From Heaven
Johnny Burke/Arthur Johnston // 1936

Every time it rains
It rains pennies from heaven
Don't you know each cloud contains
Pennies from heaven
You'll find your fortune
Fallin' 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

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

They Can't Take That Away From Me
Ira Gershwin / George Gershwin // 1937

The way you wear your hat
The way you sip your tea
The memory of all that
No they can't take that away from me

The way your smile just beams
The way you sing off key
The way you haunt my dreams
No they can't take that away from me

We may never never meet again, on that bumpy road to love
But I'll always, always keep the memory of

The way you hold your knife
The way we danced till three
The way you changed my life
No they can't take that away from me

It Never Entered My Mind
Lorenz Hart / Richard Rodgers // 1940

Once I laughed when I heard you saying
That I'd be playing solitaire
Uneasy in my easy chair
It never entered my mind

And once you told me I was mistaken
That I'd awaken with the sun
And ordered orange juice for one
It never entered my mind
You have what I like myself
Now I even have to scratch my back myself

Once you warned me that if you scorned me
I'd say a lonely prayer again
And wish that you were there again
To get into my hair again
It never entered my mind

Once you warned me that if you scorned me
I'd say a lonely prayer again
And wish that you were there again
To get into my hair again
It never entered my mind

I've Got You Under My Skin
Cole Porter // 1936

I've got you under my skin
I have got you, deep in the heart of me
So deep in my heart that you're really a part of me
I've got you under my skin

I'd tried so, not to give in
And I said to myself this affair it never will go so well
But why should I try to resist when baby I know so well
That I've got you under my skin

I'd sacrifice anything come what might
For the sake of having you near
In spite of a warning voice that comes in the night
And repeats, repeats in my ear

Don't you know, you fool
You never can win
Use your mentality
Wake up to reality
And each time I do just the thought of you
Makes me stop before I begin
'Cause I've got you under my skin

I would sacrifice anything come what might
For the sake of having you near
In spite of a warning voice comes in the night
And repeats how it yells in my ear

Don't you know, you fool
That ain't no just win
Why not use your mentality
Wake up, step up to reality
And each time I do just the thought of you
Makes me stop just before I begin
Because I've got you under my skin

Yea, you grab me under my skin

Someone To Watch Over Me
Ira Gershiwin / George Gershwin // 1939

There's a somebody I'm longing to see
I hope that she turns out to be
Someone who'll watch over me
I'm a little lamb who's lost in the wood
I know I could, could always be good
To one who'll watch over me

Although I may not be the man some
Girls think of as handsome
To her heart I'll carry the key
Won't you tell her please to put on some speed
Follow my lead, oh, how I need
Someone to watch over me

Won't you tell her please to put on some speed
Follow my lead, oh, how I need
Someone to watch over me

The Way You Look Tonight
Dorothy Fields / Jerome Kern // 1936

Some day, when I'm awfully low
When the world is cold
I will feel a glow just thinking of you
And the way you look tonight

Yes, 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 wrinkles your nose
Touches my foolish heart

Lovely, never, never change
Keep that breathless charm
Won't you please arrange it?
'Cause I love you
Just the way you look tonight

And that laugh wrinkles your nose
It touches my foolish heart
Lovely, don't you ever change
Keep that breathless charm
Won't you please arrange it?
'Cause I love you
Just the way you look tonight

Mm, mm
Just the way you look to-night

I've Got The World On A String
Ted Koehler / Harold Arlen // 1932

I've got the world on a string, sittin' on a rainbow
Got the string around my finger
What a world, what a life, I'm in love
I've got a song that I sing

I can make the rain go, anytime I move my finger
Lucky me, can't you see, I'm in love
Life is a beautiful thing, as long as I hold the string
I'd be a silly so and so, if I should ever let it go

I've got the world on a string, sittin' on a rainbow
Got the string around my finger
What a world, what a life, I'm in love

Life is a beautiful thing, as long as I hold the string
I'd be a silly so and so, if I should ever let it go
I've got the world on a string, sittin' on a rainbow
Got the string around my finger
What a world
Man this is the life
Hey now I'm so in love

A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square
Eric Maschwitz / Manning Sherwin // 1939

That certain night, the night we met
There was magic abroad in the air
There were angels dining at the Ritz
And a nightingale sang in Berkley Square

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

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

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

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

I know 'cause I was there
That night in Berkley Square

It Might As Well Be Spring
Oscar Hammerstein II / Richard Rodgers // 1945

I'm as restless as a willow in a windstorm
I'm as jumpy as puppet on a string
I'd say that I had spring fever
But I know it isn't spring
I am starry eyed and vaguely discontented
Like a nightingale without a song to sing
Oh why should I have spring fever
When it isn't even spring
I keep wishing I were someone else
Walking down a strange new street
And hearing words that I've never head
From a girl I've yet to meet
I'm as busy as spider spinning daydreams
Spinning spinning daydreams
I'm as giddy as a baby on a swing
I haven't seen a crocus or a rosebud
Or a robin on the wing
But I feel so gay in a melancholy way
That it might as well be spring
It might as well be spring

All The Way
Sammy Cahn / Jimmy van Heusen // 1957

When somebody loves you
It's no good unless he loves you - all the way
Happy to be near you
When you need someone to cheer you - all the way

Taller than the tallest tree is
That's how it's got to feel
Deeper than the deep blue see is
That's how deep it goes - if its real

When somebody needs you
It's no good unless he needs you - all the way
Through the good or lean years
And for all the in between years - come what may

Who know where the road will lead us
Only a fool would say
But if you'll let me love you
It's for sure I'm gonna love you - all the way, all the way

Dream When You're Feeling Blue
Johnny Mercer // 1944

Dream, when you're feeling blue
Dream, that's the thing to do
Just watch the smoke rings rise in the air
You'll find your share of memories there

So dream when the day is through
Dream, and they might come true
Things never are as bad as they seem
So dream, dream, dream

The Best Is Yet To Come
Carolyn Leigh / Cy Coleman // 1959

Out of the tree of life
I just picked me a plumb
You came along
And everything started in to hum

Still it's a real good bet
The best is yet to come

Best is yet to come
And babe won't that be fine?
You think you've seen the sun
But you ain't seen it shine

Wait till the warm-up's underway
Wait till our lips have met
And wait till you see that sunshine day
You ain't seen nothin' yet

The best is yet to come
And babe won't it be fine
The best is yet to come
Come the day your mine

Come the day your mine
I'm gonna teach you to fly
We've only tasted the wine
We're gonna drain that cup dry

Wait till your charms are right
For these arms to surround
You think you've flown before
But baby, you ain't left the ground

Wait till you're locked in my embrace
Wait till I draw you near
Wait till you see that sunshine place
Ain't nothin' like it here

The best is yet to come
And babe won't it be fine
The best is yet to come
Come the day your mine

Come the day your mine
And you're gonna be mine

My Funny Valentine
Lorenz Hart / Richard Rodgers // 1937

My funny Valentine
Sweet comic Valentine
You make me smile with my heart
Your looks are laughable
Unphotographable
Yet you're my favourite work of art

Is your figure less than Greek
Is your mouth a little weak
When you open it to speak
Are you smart?

But don't change a hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little Valentine stay
Each day is Valentine's day

Is your figure less than Greek
Is your mouth a little weak
When you open it to speak
Are you smart?

But don't you change one hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little Valentine stay
Each day is Valentine's day

Come Fly With Me
Sammy Cahn / Jimmy Van Heusen // 1958

Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away
If you can use some exotic booze
There's a bar in far Bombay
Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away

Come fly with me, let's float down to Peru
In llama land there's a one-man band
And he'll toot his flute for you
Come fly with me, let's take off in the blue

Once I get you up there where the air is rarified
We'll just glide, starry-eyed
Once I get you up there I'll be holding you so near
You may hear angels cheer 'cause we're together

Weather-wise it's such a lovely day
You just say the words and we'll beat the birds
Down to Ac apulco Bay
It's perfect for a flying honeymoon, they say
Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away

Once I get you up there where the air is rarified
We'll just glide, starry-eyed
Once I get you up there I'll be holding you so near
You may hear angels cheer 'cause we're together

Weather-wise it's such a lovely day
You just say the words and we'll beat the birds
Down to Ac apulco Bay
It's perfect for a flying honeymoon, they say
Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly
Pack up, let's fly away!!

There Will Never Be Another You
Mack Gordon / Harry Warren // 1942

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

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

The Very Thought Of You
Ray Noble // 1934

The very thought of you and I forget to do
The ordinary things that everyone ought to do
I'm living in a kind of daydream, I'm happy as a king
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

Young At Heart
Carolyn Leigh / Johnny Richards // 1953

Fairy tales can come true
It can happen to you if you're young at heart
For it's hard, you will find
To be narrow of mind if you're young at heart

You can go to extremes with impossible schemes
You can laugh when your dreams fall apart at the seams
And life gets more exciting with each passing day
And love is either in your heart or on it's way

Don't you know that it's worth
Every treasure on earth to be young at heart
For as rich as you are
It's much better by far to be young at heart

And if you should survive to a hundred and five
Look at all you'll derive out of bein' alive
And here is the best part, you have a head start
If you are among the very young at heart

The Summer Wind
Hans Bradtke, rewroted by Johnny Mercer / Heinz Meier // 1965

The summer wind came blowin' in from across the sea
It lingered there, to touch your hair and walk with me
All summer long we sang a song and then we strolled that golden sand
Two sweethearts and the summer wind

Like painted kites, those days and nights they went flyin' by
The world was new beneath a blue umbrella sky
Then softer than a piper man, one day it called to you
I lost you, I lost you to the summer wind

The autumn wind, and the winter winds they have come and gone
And still the days, those lonely days, they go on and on
And guess who sighs his lullabies through nights that never end
My fickle friend, the summer wind
The summer wind
Warm summer wind
The summer wind

September Song
Maxwell Anderson / Kurt Weill // 1938

Oh, it's a long, long time from May to December
But the days grow short when you reach September
When the autumn weather turns the leaves to flame
One hasn't got time for the waiting game
Oh, the days dwindle down to a precious few
September, November
And these few precious days I'll spend with you
These precious days I'll spend with you

It Had To Be You
Gus Kahn / Isham Jones // 1924

Why do I do just as you say
Why must I just give you your way
Why do I sigh
Why don't I try to forget

It must have been that something lovers call fate
Kept me saying "I had to wait"
I saw them all
Just couldn't fall 'til we met
It had to be you, it had to be you
I've wandered around, finally found somebody who
Could make me be true
Could make me be blue
And, even be glad just to be sad thinkin' of you

Some others I've seen
Might never be mean
Might never be cross
Or, try to be boss
But, they wouldn't do

For nobody else gave me a thrill
With all your faults, I love you still
It had to be you, wonderful you
It had to be you

'Cause nobody else gave me a thrill
With all your faults, I love you still now
And it had to be you, it just had to be you
It had to be you

April In Paris
Edgar Yipsel Harburg / Vernon Duke // 1932

I never knew the charm of spring
Never met it face to face
I never knew my heart could sing
Never missed a warm embrace till

April in Paris
Chestnuts in blossom
Holiday tables
Under the trees

April in Paris
This is a feeling
That no one can ever reprise

I never knew the charm of spring
I never met it face to face
And I never knew my heart could sing
Never missed a warm embrace till

All Of Me
Seymour Simons / Gerald Marks // 1931

All of me why not take all of me
Can't you see I'm no good without you
Take my lips I want to lose them
Take my arms I'll never use them
Your good bye left me with eyes that cry
How can I get on dear without you

You took the part that once was my heart
So why not take all of me

All of me why not take all of me
Can't you see I'm just a mess without you
Take my lips I want to lose them
Why don't you take my arms I'll never use them
Your good bye left me with eyes that cry
How can I get along without you

You know that you took a part that used to be my heart
So why not take all of me

Always
Irving Berlin // 1925

I'll be loving you always
With a love that's true always
When the things you've planned need a helpin' hand
I will understand always, always

Days may not be fair always
That's when I'll be there always
Not for just an hour, not for just a day
Not for just a year but always

Days may not be fair always
That's when I'll be there always
Not for just an hour, not for just a day
Not for just a year but always

Misty
Johnny Burke / Errol Garner // 1955/1954

Look at me, I'm as helpless as a kitten up a tree
And I feel like I'm clinging to a cloud
I can't understand
I get misty just holding your hand

Walk my way and a thousand violins begin to play
Or it might be the sound of your hello
That music I hear
I get misty the moment you're near

You can say that you're leading me on
But it's just what I want you to do
Don't you notice how hopelessly I'm lost
That's why I'm following you, on my own

Would I wander through this wonderland alone
Never knowing my right foot from my left
My hat from my glove
I'm too misty and too much in love

Witchcraft
Carolyn Leigh / Cy Coleman // 1957

Those fingers in my hair
That sly come-hither stare
That strips my conscience bare
It's witchcraft

And I've got no defense for it
The heat is too intense for it
What good would common sense for it do?

'Cause it's witchcraft
Wicked witchcraft
And although, I know, it's strictly taboo

When you arouse the need in me
My heart says yes indeed in me
Proceed with what you're leading me to

It's such an ancient pitch
But one I wouldn't switch
'Cause there's no nicer witch than you

'Cause it's witchcraft
That crazy witchcraft
And although, I know, it's strictly taboo

When you arouse the need in me
My heart says yes indeed in me
Proceed with what you're leading me to

It's such an ancient pitch
But one that I'd never switch
'Cause there's no nicer witch than you

I Get A Kick Out Of You
Cole Porter // 1934

I get no kick from champagne
Mere alcohol
Doesn't thrill me at all
So tell me, why should it be true
That I get a kick out of you

Some get a kick from cocaine
I'm sure that if
I took even one sniff
It would bore me terrifically,too
Yet I get a kick out of you

I get a kick every time I see you
Standing there before me
I get a kick though it's clear to see
You obviously don't adore me

Some get a kick in a plane
Flying too high
With some gal in the sky
Is my idea of nothing to do
But I get a kick out of you
I get a kick...out of you

As Time Goes By
Herman Hupfeld // 1931

You must remember this
A kiss is still a kiss
A sigh is just a sigh
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by

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

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

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

Moonlight Serenade
Mitchel Parish / Glenn Miller // 1938

I stand at your gate and the song that I sing is of moonlight
I stand and I wait for the touch of your hand in the June night
The roses are sighing a Moonlight Serenade

The stars are aglow and tonight how their light sets me dreaming
My love, do you know that your eyes are like stars brightly beaming?
I bring you and I sing you a moonlight serenade

Let us stray till break of day in love's valley of dreams
Just you and I, a summer sky, a heavenly breeze kissin' the trees

So don't let me wait, come to me tenderly in the June night
I stand at your gate and I sing you a song in the moonlight
A love song, my darling, a moonlight serenade

In The Wee Small Hours
Bob Hilliard, David Mann // 1955

In the wee small hours of the morning
While the whole wide world is fast asleep
You lie awake and think about the girl
And never, ever think of counting sheep

When your lonely heart has learned its lesson
You'd be hers if only she would call
In the wee small hours of the morning
That's the time you miss her most of all

When your lonely heart has learned its lesson
You'd be hers if only she would call
In the wee small hours of the morning
That's the time you miss her most of all

The Lady Is A Tramp
Lorentz Hart, Richard Rogers // 1937

She gets hungry for dinner at eight
She loves the theatre, doesn't come late
She never bothers with anyone she'd hate
That's why the lady is a tramp

Doesn't like dice games with barons or earls
Won't go to Harlem dressed in ermine and pearls
WIll not dish the dirt with the rest of those girls
That's why the chick is a tramp

She loves the free, cool wind in her hair
Life without care
She's broke, but it's oke

Doesn't California, it's cold and it's damp
That's why the lady is a tramp

She gets far too hungry, baby, wait for dinner at eight
She adores the theatre, however does get there late
She'd never bother with someone she'd hate
That is why the lady is a tramp

Doesn't like dice games with barons and earls
Never makes a trip up to Harlem driving shining in Lincolns or Fords
She won't dish the dirt with the rest of those broads
That's why this chick is a tramp

She loves the free, fine, wild, knocked-out, cuckoo, groovy wind in her hair
Life's without a care
She's broke, but it's oke

She loathes California, it's cold and it's damp
That's why the lady
That is why the lady
That's why the lady is a tramp

Memories Of You
Andy Razaf / Eubie Blake // 1930

Waking skies at sunrise
Every sunset too
Seems to be bringing me
Memories of you

Here and there, everywhere
Scenes that we once knew
And they all just recall
Memories of you

How I wish, I could forget those
Those happy yesteryears
That have left a rosary of tears

Your face beams in my dreams
'Spite of all I do
Everything seems to bring
Memories of you

Body And Soul
Edward Heyman, Robert Sour, Frank Eyton / Johnny Green // 1930

My heart is sad and lonely
For you I sigh, for you dear only
Why haven't you seen it
I'm all for you body and soul

I spend my days in longing
And wondering why it's me you're wronging
I tell you I mean it
I'm all for you body and soul

I can't believe it
It's hard to conceive it
That you'd turn away romance
Are you pretending
It looks like the ending
Unless I could have just one more chance to prove, dear

My life a wreck you're making
You know I'm yours for just the taking
I'd gladly surrender myself to you body and soul

My life a wreck you're making
You know I'm yours for the very taking
I'd gladly surrender myself to you body and soul

Autumn in New York
Vernon Duke // 1934

Autumn in New York
Why does it seem so inviting
Autumn in New York
It spells the thrill of first-knighting

Glittering crowds and shimmering clouds
In canyons of steel
They're making me feel, I'm home

It's autumn in New York
That brings the promise of new love
Autumn in New York
Is often mingled with pain

Dreamers with empty hands
They sigh for exotic lands
It's autumn in New York
It's good to live it again

This autumn in New York
Transforms the slums into Mayfair
Autumn in New York
You'll need no castles in Spain

Lovers that bless the dark
On benches in Central Park
It's autumn in New York
It's good to live it again

Moonlight In Vermont
John Blackburn / Karl Suessdorf // 1943

Pennies in a stream
Falling leaves of sycamore
Moonlight in Vermont

Icy finger waves
Ski trails on a mountain side
Snowlight in Vermont

Telegraph cables, they sing down the highway
And travel each bend in the road
People who meet in this romantic setting
Are so hypnotized by the lovely

Evening summer breeze
Warbling of a meadow lark
Moonlight in Vermont

Telegraph cables, how they sing down the highway
And they travel each bend in the road
People who meet in this romantic setting
Are so hypnotized by the lovely

Evening summer breeze
The warbling of a meadow lark
Moonlight in Vermont

Moonlight in Vermont
Moonlight in Vermont
Moonlight in Vermont

On The Sunny Side Of The Street
Dorothy Fields / Jimmy McHugh // 1930

Grab your coat and snatch your hat, leave your worries on the doorstep
Just direct your feet to the sunny side of the street

Can't you hear that 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 the blues on parade
No longer afraid, the rover crossed over

If I never had a cent I'll be rich as Rockfeller
The gold dust at my feet on the sunny side of the street

I used to walk in the shade with those blues on parade
But I'm not afraid 'cause the rover, he got over

If I never had a cent, I'd be rich as Rockfeller
All those chicks 'round my feet on the sunny, sunny side of the street

I Don't Stand A Ghost Of A Chance With You
Ned Washington / Victor Young // 1932

I need your love so badly, I love you oh so madly
But I don't stand a ghost of a chance with you
I thought at last I'd found you but other loves surround you
And I don't stand a ghost of a chance with you

If you'd surrender just for a tender kiss or two
You might discover that I'm the lover meant for you
And I'd be true but what's the good of scheming
I'm dreaming for I don't stand a ghost of a chance with you
'Cuz I don't stand a ghost of a chance with you

Bewitched, Bothered And Bewildered
Lorenz Hart / Richard Rodgers // 1940

She's a fool and don't I know it?
But a fool can have her charms
I'm in love and don't I show it?
Like a babe in arms

Love's the same old sad sensation
Lately, I've not slept a wink
Since this silly situation
Has me on the blink

I'm wild again, beguiled again
A simpering, whimpering child again
Bewitched, bothered, and bewildered am I

Couldn't sleep and wouldn't sleep
Then love came and told me I shouldn't sleep
Bewitched, bothered, and bewildered am I

Lost my heart but what of it?
She is cold, I agree
She can laugh but I love it
Although the laugh's on me

I'll sing to her, each Spring to her
And long for the day when I cling to her
Bewitched, bothered, and bewildered am I

Three Coins In The Fountain
Sammy Cahn / Jule Styne // 1954

Three coins in the fountain
Each one seeking happiness
Thrown by three hopeful lovers
Which one will the fountain bless?

Three hearts in a fountain
Each heart longing for its home
There they lie in the fountain
Somewhere in the heart of Rome

Which one will the fountain bless?
Which one will the fountain bless?

Three coins in the fountain
Through the ripples how they shine
Just one wish will be granted
One heart will wear a valentine

Make it mine, make it mine, make it mine

Three coins in the fountain
Through the ripples how they shine
And just one wish will be granted
One heart will wear a valentine

Make it mine, make it mine, make it mine

All My Tomorrows
James Van Heusen / Sammy Cahn // 1959

Today I may not have a thing at all
Except for just a dream or two
But I've got lots of plans for tomorrow
And all my tomorrows belong to you

Right now it may not seem like spring at all
We're drifting and the laughs are few
But I've got rainbows planned for tomorrow
And all my tomorrows belong to you

No one knows better than I
That luck keeps passing me by that's fate
But with you there at my side
I'll soon be turning the tide just wait

As long as I've got arms that cling at all
It's you that I'll be clinging to
And all the dreams I dream, beg or borrow
On some bright tomorrow will all come true
And all my bright tomorrows belong to you

Ten Cents A Dance
Lorenz Hart / Richard Rodgers // 1930

Ten cents a dance, that's what they pay me
Gosh, how they weigh me down
Ten cents a dance, pansies and rough guys
Tough guys who tear my gown

Seven to midnight I hear drums
Loudly the saxophone blows
Trumpets are tearing my eardrums
Customers crush my toes

Sometimes I think I've found my hero
But it's a queer romance
All that you need is a ticket
Come on, big boy, ten cents a dance

Ten cents a dance, that's what they pay me
Gosh, how they weigh me down
Ten cents a dance, pansies and rough guys
Tough guys who tear my gown

Seven to midnight I hear drums
Loudly the saxophone blows
Trumpets are tearing my eardrums
Customers crush my toes

Sometimes I think I've found my hero
But it's a queer romance
All that you need is a ticket
Come on, big boy, ten cents a dance!

The Very Thought Of You
Ray Noble // 1934

I dont need your photograph to keep by my bed
Your picture is always in my head
I don't need you portrait, dear, to call you to mind
For sleeping or waking, dear, I find

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 queen
And foolish though it may seem
To me that's everything

The mere idea of you
The longing I hear 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

A Woman's Intuition
Ned Washington / Victor Young // 1950

You go along in your quiet way
Act more strange every day
In this position
A woman's intuition
Will tell her all there is to know

It's very clear that there's someone new
Hurting me, charming you
That great magician
A woman's intuition
Told me all these things are so

You haven't held me in your arms lately
You haven't kissed me
in the tender way you should
It's rather obvious you've changed greatly
But I wouldn't say the change is for the good

To give you up, what a fool I'd be
Not a chance, no sirree
On no condition
For my woman's intuition
Says you're the only one for me

To give you up, what a fool I'd be
Not a chance, no sirree
On no condition
For my woman's intuition
Says you're the only one for me

Someone To Watch Over Me
Ira Gershwin / George Gershwin // 1926

There's a somebody I'm longing to see
I hope that she turns out to be
Someone who'll watch over me
I'm a little lamb who's lost in the wood
I know I could always be good
To one who'll watch over me

Although I may not be the man some
Girls think of as handsome
To her heart I'll carry the key
Won't you tell her please to put on some speed
Follow my lead, oh, how I need
Someone to watch over me

They Can't Take That Away from Me
Ira Gershwin / George Gershwin // 1936

Our romance won't end on a sorrowful note
Though by tomorrow you're gone
The song is ended, but as the songwriter wrote
The melody lingers on
They may take you from me, I'll miss your fond caress
But though they take you from me, I'll still possess

The way you wear your hat
The way you sip your tea
The memory of all that
No, no, they can't take that away from me

The way your smile just beams
The way you sing off key
The way you haunt my dreams
No, no, they can't take that away from me

We may never, never meet again
On the bumpy road to love
Still, I'll always, always keep the memory of

The way you hold your knife
The way we danced till three
The way you changed my life
No, no, they can't take that away from me
No, they can't take that away from me

We may never, never meet again
On the bumpy road to love
Still, I'll always, always keep the memory of

The way you hold your knife
The way we danced till three
The way you changed my life
No, no, they can't take that away from me
No, they can't take that away
Can't take that away
Can't take that away from me

Moonlight In Vermont
John Blackburn / Karl Suessdorf // 1943

Pennies in a stream
Falling leaves a sycamore
Moonlight in Vermont

Icy finger waves
Ski trails on a mountain side
Snowlight in Vermont

Telegraph cables, they sing down the highway
And travel each bend in the road
People who meet in this romantic setting
Are so hypnotized by the lovely

Evening summer breeze
Warbling of a meadowlark
Moonlight in Vermont
You and I and moonlight in Vermont

Telegraph cables, they sing down the highway
And travel each bend in the road
People who meet in this romantic setting
Are so hypnotized by the lovely

Evening summer breeze
Warbling, warbling of a meadowlark
Moonlight in Vermont
You and I and moonlight in Vermont
Moonlight in Vermont

Tenderly
Jack Lawrence / Walter Gross // 1946

The evening breeze caressed the trees tenderly
The trembling trees embraced the breeze tenderly
Then you and I came wandering by
And lost in a sigh were we

The shore was kissed by sea and mist tenderly
I can't forget how two hearts met breathlessly
Your arms opened wide and closed me inside
You took my lips, you took my love so tenderly

Your arms opened wide and closed me inside
You took my lips
You took my love
So tenderly

Misty
Johnny Burke / Errol Garner // 1955/1954

Look at me
I'm as helpless as a kitten up a tree
And I feel like I'm clingin' to a cloud
I can' t understand
I get misty
Just holding your hand
Walk my way
And a thousand violins begin to play
Or it might be the sound of your hello
That music I hear
I get misty
The moment you're near
Can't you see that you're leading me on?
And it's just what I want you to do
Don't you notice how hopelessly I'm lost
That's why I'm following you
On my own
When I wander through this wonderland alone
Never knowing my right foot from my left
My hat from my glove
I'm too misty
And too much in love
Too misty
And too much
In love

Lullaby Of Birdland
George David Weiss / George Shearing // 1952

Lullaby of birdland
That's what I
Always hear, when you sigh
Never in my wordland
could there ways to reveal
in a phrase, how I feel

Have you ever heard two turtledoves
Bill and coo
when they love
that's the kind of magic music
we make with our lips
when we kiss

And there's a weepy ol' willow
He really knows how to cry
That's how I cry on my pillow
If you should tell me
farewell and goodbye

Lullaby of birdland
whisper low
kiss me sweet, and we'll go
flying high in birdland
high in the sky up above
all because we're in love

It Had To Be You
Gus Kahn / Isham Jones // 1924

Seems like dreams like I always had
Could be, should be, making me glad
Why am I blue? It's up to you to explain
I'm thinking maybe baby I'll go away
Someday someway You'll come and say
It's you I need and you'll be pleading in vain

It had to be you
It had to be you
I wondered around
And finally found somebody who
Could make me be true
Could make me feel blue
And even be glad, just to be sad
Thinking of you

Some others I've seen might never be mean
Might never be cross, or try to be boss
But they wouldn't do
For nobody else gives me a thrill
With all your faults dear I love you still
It had to be you
Wonderful you
It had to be you

For nobody else gave me a thrill
With all your faults dear, I love you still
It had to be you
Wonderful you
It had to be you

That Old Feeling
Lew Brown / Sammy Fain // 1937

I saw you last night and got that old feeling
When you came in sight I got that old feeling
The moment you came by I felt a thrill
And when you caught my eye
My heart stood still
Once again I seemed to have that old yearning
And I knew the spark of love was still burning
There'll be no new romance for me
It's foolish to start

There Will Never Be Another You
Mack Gordon / Harry Warren // 1942

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

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

I'm In The Mood For Love
Dorothy Fields / Jimmy McHugh // 1935

I'm in the mood for love
Simply because you're near me
Funny, but when you're near me
I'm in the mood for love

Heaven is in your eyes
Bright as the stars we're under
Oh, is it any wonder?
I'm in the mood for love

Why stop to think of whether
This little dream might fade
We've put our hearts together
Now we are one, I'm not afraid

If there's a cloud above
If it should rain, we'll let it
But, for tonight, forget it
I'm in the mood for love

Why stop to think of whether
This little dream might fade
We've put our hearts together
Now we are one, I'm not afraid

If there's a cloud above
If it should rain, we'll let it
But, for tonight, forget it
I'm in the mood for love

Again
Dorcas Cochran / Lionel Newman // 1948

Again, this couldn't happen again
This is that once in a lifetime
This is the thrill divine

What's more, this never happened before
Though I have prayed for a lifetime
That such as you would suddenly be mine

Mine to hold as I'm holding you now and yet never so near
Mine to have when the now and the here disappear
What matters, dear, for

When this doesn't happen again
We'll have this moment forever
But never, never again
We'll have this moment forever
But never, never again

Dream A Little Dream Of Me
Gus Kahn / Wilber Schwandt & Fabian Andre // 1930

Stars shining bright above you
Night breezes seem to whisper "I love you"
Birds singing in the sycamore tree
Dream a little dream of me

Say "Night-ie night" and kiss me
Just hold me tight and tell me you'll miss me
While I'm alone and blue as can be
Dream a little dream of me

Stars fading but I linger on, dear
Still craving your kiss
I'm longing to linger till dawn, dear
Just saying this

Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you
But in your dreams whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me

On Moonlight Bay
Edward Madden / Percy Weinrich // 1912

We were sailing along on Moonlight Bay
We could hear the voices ringing
They seemed to say
"You have stolen her heart"
"Now don't go 'way"
As we sang love's old sweet song on Moonlight Bay

We were sailing along on Moonlight Bay
We could hear the voices ringing
They seemed to say
"You have stolen her heart"
"Now don't go 'way"
As we sang love's old sweet song on Moonlight Bay

Three Coins In The Fountain
Sammy Cahn / Jule Styne // 1954

Three coins in the fountain
Each one seeking happiness
Thrown by three hopeful lovers
Which one will the fountain bless?

Three hearts in the fountain
Each heart longing for its home
There they lie in the fountain
Somewhere in the heart of Rome

Which one will the fountain bless?
Which one will the fountain bless?

Three coins in the fountain
Through the ripples how they shine
Just one wish will be granted
One heart will wear a valentine

Make it mine
Make it mine
Make it mine

Three coins in the fountain
Through the ripples how they shine
And just one wish will be granted
One heart will wear a valentine

Make it mine
Make it mine
Make it mine

Tea For Two
Irving Caeser / Vincent Youmans // 1925

Picture me upon your knee
With tea for two and two for tea
Just me for you and you for me, alone
Nobody near us, to see us or hear us
No friends or relations
On weekend vacations
We won't have it known, dear
That we own a telephone, dear

Day will break and I'm gonna wake
And start to bake a sugar cake
for you to take for all the boys to see
We will raise a family
A boy for you, and a girl for me
Can't you see how happy we will be

Day will break and I'm gonna wake
And start to bake a sugar cake
for you to take for all the boys to see
We will raise a family
A boy for you, and a girl for me
Oh can't you see how happy we will be

Sentimental Journey
Bud Green / Les Brown / Ben Homer // 1944

Gonna take a Sentimental Journey
Gonna set my heart at ease
Gonna make a Sentimental Journey
to renew old memories

Got my bags, got my reservations
Spent each dime I could afford
Like a child in wild anticipation
I Long to hear that all aboard

Seven...that's the time we leave at seven
I'll be waitin' up at heaven
Countin' every mile of railroad
track, that takes me back

Never thought my heart could be so yearny
Why did I decide to roam?
Gotta take that Sentimental Journey
Sentimental Journey home
Sentimental Journey

It's Magic
Sammy Cahn / Jule Styne // 1947

You sigh, the song begins, you speak and I hear violins
It's magic
The stars desert the skies and rush to nestle in your eyes
It's magic

Without a golden wand or mystic charms
Fantastic things begin when I am in your arms

When we walk hand-in-hand, the world becomes a wonderland
It's magic
How else can I explain those rainbows when there isn't rain?
It's magic

Why do I tell me myself these things that happen are all really true
When in my heart I know the magic is my love for you?

It's magic
It's magic

Why do I tell me myself these things that happen are all really true
When in my heart I know the magic is my love for you?

If I Give My Heart To You
Jimmie Crane, Al Jacobs, Jimmy Brewster // 1954

If I give my heart to you
Will you handle it with care
Will you always treat me tenderly
And in every way be fair

If I give my heart to you
Will you give me all your love
Will you swear that you'll be true to me
By the light that shines above

And will you sigh with me when I'm sad
Smile with me when I'm glad
And always be as you are with me tonight

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

And will you sigh with me when I'm sad
Smile with me when I'm glad
And always be as you are with me tonight

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

Bewitched, Bothered And Bewildered
Lorenz Hart / Richard Rodgers // 1940

I'm wild again, beguiled again
A simpering, whimpering child again
Bewitched, bothered, and bewildered am I

Couldn't sleep and wouldn't sleep
Then love came and told me I shouldn't sleep
Bewitched, bothered, and bewildered am I

Lost my heart but what of it?
He is cold, I agree
He can laugh but I love it
Although the laugh's on me

I'll sing to him, each Spring to him
And long for the day when I cling to him
Bewitched, bothered, and bewildered am I

The Very Thought Of You
Ray Noble // 1934

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

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

When Sunny Gets Blue
Marvin Fisher / Jack Segal // 1956

When Sunny gets blue, her eyes get gray and cloudy
Then the rain begins to fall, pitter-patter, pitter-patter
Love is gone so what can matter
No sweet lover a man comes to call

When Sunny gets blue, she breaths a sigh of sadness
Like the wind that stirs the trees
Wind that sets the leaves to swaying
Like some violins are playing weird and haunting melodies

People used to love to hear her laugh, see her smile
That's how she got her name
Since that sad affair, she lost her smile, changed her style
Somehow she's not the same

But memories will fade and pretty dreams will rise up
Where her other dreams fell through
Hurry new love, hurry here, to kiss away each lonely tear
And hold her near when Sunny gets blue

Somewhere Along The Way
Sammy Gallop / Jimmy Van Heusen 1952

I used to walk with you
Along the avenue
Our hearts were carefree and gay

How could I know I'd lose you
Somewhere along the way?

The friends we used to know
Would always smile, "Hello"
No love like our love they'd say

Then love slipped through our fingers
Somewhere along the way

I should forget
But with the loneliness of night
I start remembering everything

You're gone and yet
There's still a feeling deep inside
That you will always be part of me

So now I look for you
Along the avenue
And as I wander I pray

That some day soon, I'll find you
Somewhere along the way

I should forget
But with the loneliness of night
I start remembering everything

You're gone and yet
There's still a feeling deep inside
That you will always be part of me

So now I look for you
Along the avenue
And as I wander I pray

That some day soon, I'll find you
Somewhere along the way
Somewhere along the way

For All We Know
Sam M. Lewis / John Frederick Coots // 1934

For all we know, we may never meet again
Before you go, make this moment sweet again
We won't say "Good night" until the last minute
I'll hold out my hand and my heart will be in it

For all we know, this may only be a dream
We come and go like a ripple on a stream
So love me tonight, tomorrow was made for some
Tomorrow may never come for all we know

So love me tonight, tomorrow was made for some
Tomorrow may never come for all we know

Unforgettable
Irving Gordon // 1951

Unforgettable, that's what you are
Unforgettable though near or far
Like a song of love that clings to me
How the thought of you does things to me
Never before has someone been more

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

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

Love Letters
Edward Heyman / Victor Young // 1945

The sky may be starless
The night may be moonless
But deep in my heart there's a glow

For deep in my heart
I know that you love me, you love me
Because you told me so

Love letters straight from your heart
Keep us so near while apart
I'm not alone in the night
When I can have all the love you write

I memorize every line
I kiss the name that you sign
And darling, then I read again right from the start

Fascination
Maurice de Féraudy, rewote by Dick Manning in English / Fermo Dante Marchetti // 1932

It was fascination, I know
And it might have ended
Right then at the start

Just a passing glance
Just a brief romance
And I might have gone
On my way, empty hearted

It was fascination, I know
Seeing you alone
With the moonlight above

Then I touch your hand
And next moment, I kiss you
Fascination turned to love

It was fascination, I know
Seeing you alone
With the moonlight above
Then I touch your hand
And next moment, I kiss you
Fascination turned to love

Stardust
Mitchell Parish / Hoagy Carmichael // 1929/1927

And now the purple dusk of twilight time
Steals across the meadows of my heart
High up in the sky the little stars climb
Always reminding me that we're apart

You wander down the lane and far away
Leaving me a song that will not die
Love is now the stardust of yesterday
The music of the years gone by

Sometimes I wonder why I spend
The lonely night dreaming of a song
The melody haunts my reverie
And I am once again with you
When our love was new
And each kiss an inspiration
But that was long ago
Now my consolation
Is in the stardust of a song

Beside a garden wall
When stars are bright
You are in my arms
The nightingale tells his fairy tale
A paradise where roses bloom
Though I dream in vain
In my heart it will remain
My stardust melody
The memory of love's refrain

For Sentimental Reasons
Deek Watson / William Best, (1945)

I love you for sentimental reasons
I hope you do believe me
I'll give you my heart

I love you and you alone were meant for me
Please give your loving heart to me
And say we'll never part

I think of you every morning
Dream of you every night
Darling, i'm never lonely
Whenever you are in sight

I love you for sentimental reasons
I hope you do believe me
I've given you my heart

I love you for sentimental reasons
I hope you do believe me
I've given you my heart

A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square
Eric Maschwitz / Manning Sherwin // 1939

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

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

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

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

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

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

When I Fall In Love
Edward Heyman / Victor Young // 1951

When I fall in love it will be forever
Or I'll never fall in love
In a restless world like this is
Love is ended before it's begun
And too many moonlight kisses
Seem to cool in the warmth of the sun

When I give my heart it will be completely
Or I'll never give my heart
And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too
Is when I fall in love with you

And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too
Is when I fall in love with you

Pretend
Dan Belloc, Lew Douglas, Cliff Parman, Frank Levere // 1952

Pretend youre happy when youre blue
It isnt very hard to do
And youll find happiness without an end
Whenever you pretend

Remember anyone can dream
And nothings bad as it may seem
The little things you havent got
Could be a lot if you pretend

Youll find a love you can share
One you can call all your own
Just close your eyes, shell be there
Youll never be alone

And if you sing this melody
Youll be pretending just like me
The world is mine, it can be yours, my friend
So why dont you pretend?

And if you sing this melody
Youll be pretending just like me
The world is mine, it can be yours, my friend
So why dont you pretend?

Red Sails In The Sunset
Jimmy Kennedy / Hugh Williams // 1935

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

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

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

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

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

Route 66
Bobby Troup // 1946

If you ever plan to motor west
Travel my way, take the highway that is best
Get your kicks on route sixty-six

It winds from Chicago to LA
More than two thousand miles all the way
Get your kicks on route sixty-six

Now you go through Saint Looey
Joplin, Missouri
And Oklahoma City is mighty pretty
You see Amarillo
Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff, Arizona
Don't forget Winona
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernandino

Won't you get hip to this timely tip
When you make that California trip
Get your kicks on route sixty-six

Won't you get hip to this timely tip
When you make that California trip
Get your kicks on route sixty-six
Get your kicks on route sixty-six
Get your kicks on route sixty-six

Answer Me My Love
Sigman Carl / Gerhard Winkler, Fred Rauch // 1953

Answer me, oh, my love
Just what sin have I been guilty of?
Tell me, how I came to lose your love?
Please answer me, sweetheart
You were mine yesterday
I believed that love was here to stay
Won't you tell me where I've gone astray?
Please answer me, my love

If you're happier without me
I'll try not to care
But if you still think about me
Please listen to my prayer

You must know I've been true
Won't you say that we can start anew?
In my sorrow now I turn to you
Please answer me, my love

If you're happier without me
I'll try not to care
But if you still think about me
Please listen to my prayer

You must know
(You must know)
I've been true
(I've been true)
Won't you say that we can start anew?
In my sorrow now I turn to you
Please answer me, my love
Answer me, my love

At The End Of A Rainbow
Sid Jacobson / Jimmy Krondes // 1958

At the end of a rainbow
You'll find a ton of gold
At the end of a story
You'll find it's all been told

But our love has a treasure
Our hearts can always spend
And it has a story without any end

At the end of a river
No waters stop it's flow
At the end of a highway
There's no place you can go

But just tell me you love me
And you are only mine
And our love will go on till the end of time

At the end of a river
No waters stop it's flow
At the end of a highway
There's no place you can go

But just tell me you love me
And you are only mine
And our love will go on
Till the end of time
Till the end of time

Dance, Ballerina, Dance
Carl Sigman / Sidney Keith Russell // 1947

Dance, ballerina, dance
And do your pirouette in rhythm with your achin' heart
Dance, ballerina, dance
You mustn't once forget a dancer has to dance the part

Whirl, ballerina, whirl
And just ignore the chair that's empty in the second row
This is your moment, girl
Although he's not out there applauding as you steal the show

Once you said his love must wait it's turn
You wanted fame instead
I guess that's your concern
We live and learn

And love is gone, ballerina, gone
So on with your career, you can't afford a backward glance
Dance on and on and on
A thousand people here have come to see the show
As 'round and 'round you go
So ballerina, dance
Dance, dance

Whirl, ballerina

Once you said his love must wait it's turn
You wanted fame instead
I guess that's your concern
We live and learn

And love is gone, ballerina, gone
So on with your career, you can't afford a backward glance
Dance on and on and on
A thousand people here have come to see the show
As 'round and 'round you go
So ballerina, dance!
Dance!

Emblaceable You
Ira Gershwin / George Gershwin // 1928

Embrace me, my sweet embraceable you
Embrace me, you irreplaceable you
Just one look at you, my heart grew tipsy in me
You and you alone bring out the gypsy in me

I love all the many charms about you
Above all I want my arms about you
Don't be a naughty baby
Come to papa, come to papa, do
My sweet embraceable you

Here's That Rainy Day
Johnny Burke / Jimmy Van Heusen // 1953

Maybe I should have saved those left over dreams
Funny, but here's that rainy day
Here's that rainy day they told me about
And I laughed at the thought that it might turn out this way

Where is that worn out wish that I threw aside
After it brought my lover near
It's funny how love becomes a cold rainy day
Funny, that rainy day is here

Funny how love becomes a cold rainy day
Funny, that rainy day is here

September In The Rain
Al Dubin / Harry Warren // 1937

The leaves of brown came tumblin' down, remember
In September in the rain

The sun went out just like a dying ember
That September in the rain

To every word of love I heard you whisper
The raindrops seemed to play a sweet refrain

Though spring is here, to me it's still September
That September in the rain

To every word of love I heard you whisper
The raindrops seemed to play a sweet refrain

Though spring is here, to me it's still September
That September in the rain
That September in the rain

Get Out Of Town
Cole Porter // 1938

The farce was ended
The curtains drawn
And I at least pretended
That love was dead and gone

But now, from nowhere
You come to me as before
To take my heart
And break my heart once more

Get out of town
Before it's too late, my love
Get out of town
Be good to mr please

Why wish me harm?
Why not retire to a farm
And be contented to charm
The birds off the trees?

Just disappear
I care for you much too much
And when you are near
Close to me dear
We touch too much

The thrill when we meet
Is so bitter-sweet
That, darling, it's getting me down
So on your mark
Get set
Get out of town

I've Got The World On A String
Ted Koehler / Harold Arlen // 1932

I've got the world on a string, sittin' on a rainbow
Got the string around my finger
What a world, what a life, I'm in love
I've got a song that I sing

I can make the rain go, anytime I move my finger
Lucky me, can't you see, I'm in love
Life is a beautiful thing, as long as I hold the string
I'd be a silly so and so, if I should ever let go

I've got the world on a string, sittin' on a rainbow
Got the string around my finger
What a world, what a life, I'm in love

Life is a beautiful thing, as long as I hold the string
I'd be a silly so and so, if I should ever let go
I've got the world on a string, sittin' on a rainbow
Got the string around my finge
r What a world
Man this is the life
And now I'm so in love

Cheek To Cheek
Irving Berlin // 1935

Heaven, I'm in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek

Heaven, I'm in heaven
And the cares that hung around me through the week
Seem to vanish like a gambler's lucky streak
When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek

Oh I love to climb a mountain
And to reach the highest peak
But it doesn't thrill me half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek
Oh I love to go out fishing
In a river or a creek
But I don't enjoy it half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek

Dance with me, I want my arms about you
The charm about you
Will carry me through
To heaven, I'm in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek

Oh I love to climb a mountain
And to reach the highest peak
But it doesn't thrill me half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek
Oh I love to go out fishing
In a river or a creek
But I don't enjoy it half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek

Dance with me, I want my arms about you
The charm about you
Will carry me through
To heaven, I'm in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek

Unforgettable
Irving Gordon // 1951

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

My Old Flame
Sam Coslow / Athur Johnston // 1934

My old flame, I can't even think of his name, but it's funny now and then
How my thoughts go flashing back again to my old flame
My old flame, my new lovers all seem so tame, for I haven't met a gent
So magnificent or elegant as my old flame

I've met so many who had fascinating ways
A fascinating gaze in their eyes, some who took me up to the skies
But their attempts at love were only imitations of my old flame
I can't even think of his name, but I'll never be the same
Until I discover what became of my old flame

I've met so many who had fascinating ways
A fascinating gaze in their eyes, some who took me up to the skies
But their attempts at love were only imitations of my old flame
I can't even think of his name but I'll never be the same
Until I discover what became of my old flame

Everythin Happens To Me
Tom Adair / Matt Dennis // 1940

Black cats creep across my path
Until I'm almost mad
I must have 'roused the devil's wrath
'Cause all my luck is bad
I make a date for golf and you can bet your life it rains
I try to give a party and the guy upstairs complains
I guess I'll go through life just catching colds and missin' trains

Everything happens to me
I never miss a thing
I've had the measles and the mumps
And every time I play an ace
My partner always trumps
Guess I'm just a fool who never looks before he jumps

Everything happens to me
At first my heart thought you could break this jinx for me
That love would turn the trick to end despair
But know I just can't fool this head that thinks for me
I've mortgaged all my castles in the air
I've telegraphed and phoned
I send an 'Airmail Special' too
Your answer was 'Goodbye'
And there was even postage due
I fell in love just once
And then it had to be with you

Everything happens to me

Bewitched
Lorenz Hart / Richard Rodgers // 1940

She's a fool and don't I know it
But a fool can have her charms
I'm in love and don't I show it
Like a babe in arms

Love's the same old situation
Lately I've not slept a wink
Since this crazy situation
Has me on the blink

I'm wild again, beguiled again
A whimpering, simpering child again
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered, am I

Couldn't sleep, wouldn't sleep
Love came and told me, shouldn't sleep
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered, am I

I lost my heart, but what of it
She is cold I agree
She might laugh, but I love it
Although the laugh's on me
I'll sing to her, bring spring to her
And long, for the day when I'll cling to her
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered, am I

Misty
Johnny Burke / Errol Garner // 1955/1954

Look at me
I'm as helpless as a kitten up a tree
And I feel like I'm clingin' to a cloud
I can't understand
I get misty
Holding your hand
Walk my way
And a thousand violins begin to play
Or it might be the sound of your hello
That music I hear
I get misty
The moment you're near
You can say that you're leading me on?
But it's just what I want you to do
Don't you realize how hopelessly I'm lost
That's why I'm following you
On my own
Would I wander through this wonderland alone
Never knowing my right foot from my left
My hat from my glove
I get misty
And too much in love

On my own
Would I wander through this wonderland alone
Never knowing my right foot from my left
My hat from my glove
I'm too misty
And too much in love

Cry Me A River
Arthur Hamilton // 1953

Now you say you're lonely
You cry the whole night through
Well, you can cry me a river, cry me a river
I cried a river over you

Now you say you're sorry
For bein' so untrue
Well, you can cry me a river, cry me a river
I cried a river over you

You drove me, nearly drove me out of my head
While you never shed a tear
Remember, I remember all that you said
Told me love was too plebeian
Told me you were through with me and
Now you say you love me
Well, just to prove you do
Come on and cry me a river, cry me a river
I cried a river over you

I cried a river over you
I cried a river over you
I cried a river over you

Love Letters
Edward Heyman / Victor Young // 1945

Love letters straight from your heart
Keep us so near while apart
I'm not alone in the night
When I can have all the love you write
I memorize every line
And I kiss the name that you sign
And darling, then
I read again right from the start
Love letters straight from your heart
Love letters straight from your hear

September In The Rain
Al Dubin / Harry Warren // 1937

The leaves of brown
Came tumblin' down, remember
In September in the rain

The sun went out
Just like a dying ember
That September in the rain

To every word of love
I heard you whisper
The raindrops seemed to play
A sweet refrain

Though spring is here
To me it's still September
That September in the rain
In the rain
In the rain
It's Stll september
In the rain

On London Bridge
Roy C. Bennett / Sid Tepper // 1956

I walked on London Bridge last night
I saw you by the lamppost light
Then bells rang out in sleepy Londontown
And London Bridge came tumbling down

The sky was hidden by a mist
But just like magic when we kissed
The moon and stars were shining all around
When London Bridge came tumbling down

Just you and I over the river
Two hearts suspended in space
And there so high over the river
A miracle tookplace

Two empty arms found love to hold
Two smoke rings turned to rings of gold
A simple dress became a wedding gown
When London Bridge came tumbling down

Just you and I over the river
Two hearts suspended in space
And there so high over the river
A miracle took place

I bow my head in silent prayer
And thank Him for the love we share
He blessed the night we met in Londontown
When London bridge came tumbling down

Autumn in New York
Vernon Duke // 1934

Autumn in new york
Why does it seem so inviting
Autumn in new york
It spells the thrill of first-nighting

Glittering crowds and shimmering clouds
In canyons of steel
Theyre making me feel - Im home

Its autumn in new york
That brings the promise of new love
Autumn in new york
Is often mingled with pain

Dreamers with empty hands
They sigh for exotic lands

Its autumn in new york
Its good to live it again

Autumn in new york

You Belong To Me
Pee Wee King, Chilton Price, Redd Stewart // 1952

See the pyramids along the Nile
Watch the sun rise on a tropic isle
But just remember, darling, 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

I'll be so alone and 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
But remember, darling, till you're home again
That you belong to me

Moonlight In Vermont
John Blackburn / Karl Suessdorf // 1944

Frozen winter streams
Withered leaves of sycamore
Moonlight in Vermont
Icy finger wavas
Ski trails down a mountain side
Snowlight in Vermont

Telegraph cables, they sing down the highway
And travel each bend in the road
People who meet in this romantic setting
Are so hypnotized by the lovely

Shadows through the trees
Snow drifts shine in the dark
Moonlight in Vermont

Over lonely shadows through the trees
Snow drifts shine in the dark
Moonlight in Vermont
Moonlight in Vermont

Make Someone Happy
Betty Comden, Adolph Green / Jule Styne // 1960

Make someone happy
Make just one someone happy
Make just one heart the heart you sing to
One smile that cheers you
One face that lights when it nears you
One man you're ev'rything to

Fame if you win it
Comes and goes in a minute
Where's the real stuff in life to cling to
Love is the answer
Someone to love is the answer
Once you've found him, build your world around him

Make someone happy Make just one someone happy
And you will be happy, too

My Foolish Heart
Ned Washington / Victor Young // 1949

The night is like a lovely tune
Beware my foolish heart
How white the ever constant moon
Take care my foolish heart

There's a line between love and fascination
That's hard to see, how many names such as this
For they both have the very same sensation
When you're locked in the magic of a kiss

Her lips are much too close to mine
Beware my foolish heart
But should our eager lips combine
Then let the fire start

For this time it isn't fascination
Or a dream that will fade and fall apart
It's love, this time it's love
My foolish heart

The Girl From Ipanema
Antonio Carlos Jobim // 1962

Tall and tan and young and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes each one she passes goes - ah
When she walks, she's like a samba
That swings so cool and sways so gentle
That when she passes each one she passes goes - ah

Ooh but I watch her so sadly
How can I tell her I love her?
Yes, I would give my heart gladly
Ooh but each day when she walks to the sea
She looks straight ahead not at me

Tall and tan and young and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes I smile, but she doesn't see

She just doesn't see
No she doesn't see

If I Can Stay Away Long Enough
Don Gibson // 1960

If I can stay away long enough maybe I'll forget you
If I can stay away long enough I'll lose my love for you
If I can get you out of my mind another love I'll try to find
Then live my life of happiness till the endn of time
If I can stay away long enough maybe you'll forget me
I can stay away long enough if you'll just let me be
'Cause I know our love affair could never last
So I'll just stay away and let it all be in the past

'Cause I know our love affair could never last
So I'll just stay away and let it all be in the past

What A Difference A Day Made
Maria Grever / Stanley Adams // 1934

What a difference a day made, twenty-four little hours
Brought the sun and the flowers, where there used to be rain

My yesterdays were blue dear, today I'm part of you dear
My lonely nights are through dear, since you said you were mine

What a difference a day made, there's a rainbow before me
Skies above can't restore me, since that moment of bliss, that lovely kiss

It's heaven when you find romance on your menu
What a difference a day made, and the difference is you

La Plus Belle Pour Aller Danser
Charles Aznavour // 1964

Ce soir je serai la plus belle pour aller danser
Danser
Pour mieux evincer toutes celles que tu as aimees
Aimees
Ce soir je serai la plus tendre quand tu me diras
Diras
Tous les mots que je veux entendre murmurer par toi
Par toi

Je fonde l'espoir que la robe que j'ai voulue
Et que j'ai cousue point par point
Sera chiffonnee et les cheveux que j'ai coiffes
Decoiffes par tes mains

Quand la nuit refermait ses ailes, j'ai souvent reve
Reve
Que dans la soie et la dentelle
Un soir je serai la plus belle
La plus belle pour aller danser

La plus belle pour aller danser
La plus belle pour aller danser

Tu peux me donner le souffle qui manque a ma vie
Dans un premier cri de bonheur
Si tu veux ce soir cueillir le printemps de mes jours
Et l'amour en mon coeur
Pour connaitre la joie nouvelle du premier baiser
Je sais
Qu'au seuil des amours eternelles
Il faut que je sois la plus belle
La plus belle pour aller danser

My Foolish Heart
Ned Washington / Victor Young

The night is like a lovely tune
Beware my foolish heart
How white the ever constant moon
Take care, my foolish heart

There's a line between love and fascination
That's hard to see on an evening such as this
For they both give the very same sansation
When you're lost in the magic of a kiss

His lips are much too close to mine
Beware my foolish heart
But should our eager lips conbine
Let the fire start

This time it's more than fascination
Or a dream that will fade and fall apart

Oh it's love, this time it's love, my foolish heart

There's a line between love and fascination
That's hard to see on an evening such as this
For they both give the very same sansation
When you're lost in the magic of his kiss

Oh his lips are much too close to mine
Beware my foolish heart
But should our eager lips conbine
Then let the fire start

For this time it's more than fascination
Or a dream that will fade and fall apart

It's love, this time it's love, my foolish heart

Tennessee Waltz
Redd Stewart / Pee Wee King // 1946

I was waltzin' with my darlin' to the Tennessee Waltz
When an old friend, I happened to see
Introduced her to my loved one and while they were waltzin'
My friend stole my sweetheart from me

I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
Now I know just how much I have lost
Yes, I lost my little darlin', the night they were playin'
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz
(Tennessee Waltz)

Yes, I lost my little darlin', the night they were playin'
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz
(Ooh, the Tennessee Waltz)
