My love must be a kind of blind love, I can't see anyone but you
And dear, I wonder if you find love, an optical illusion, too?
Are the stars out tonight? I don't know if it's cloudy or bright
'Cause I only have eyes for you, dear
The moon may be high but I can't see a thing in the sky
'Cause I only have eyes for you.
I don't know if we're in a garden, or on a crowded avenue
You are here, so am I, maybe millions of people go by
But they all disappear from view, for I only have eyes for you

. . .


Sweet summer breeze, whispering trees, stars shining softly above
Roses in bloom, wafted perfume, sleepy birds dreaming of love
Safe in your arms, far from alarms, daylight shall come but in vain
Tenderly press close to my breast, kiss me, kiss me again
Safe in your arms, far from alarms, daylight shall come but in vain
Tenderly press close to my breast, kiss me, kiss me again

. . .


There'll be a hot time
In the town of Berlin
When the Yanks go marchin' in
I wanna be there boy,
And spread some joy
When they take old Berlin

There'll be a hot time
In the town of Berlin
When the Brooklyn boys begin
To take the joint apart
And tear it down
When they take old Berlin

They're gonna start a row
And show them how
We paint the town back, in Kokomo
They're gonna take a hike
Through Hitler's Reich
And change his 'Heil' to 'What ya know, Joe'

There'll be a hot time
In the town of Berlin
When the Yanks go marchin' in
You could never keep 'em happy down on the farm
After they take Berlin

I'm gonna grab a Frau
And show her how
We paint the town back, in Michigan
I'm gonna take a hike
Through Hitler's Reich
And change that 'Heil' to 'Gimme some skin'

There'll be a hot time
In the town of Berlin
When the Yanks go marchin' in
You know that you could never keep 'em happy down on the farm
After they take Berlin

. . .


The music stopped
But we were still dancing
Which goes to show
That music has charm
The lights were low
So we kept on dancing
I felt the glow
Of you in my arms

The band had left the stand
And we were in heaven
Dancing on a cloud
Way off in the blue

The music stopped
And people were glancing
But we went on dancing
For we didn't know
Because the lights were low
And we were in love

The band had left the stand
And we were in heaven
Dancing on a cloud
Way off in the blue

The music stopped
And people were glancing
But we went on dancing
For we didn't know
Because the lights were low
And we were in love

. . .


I couldn't sleep a wink last night

Because we had that silly fight

I thought my heart would break the whole night through,

I knew that you'd be sorry,

And I am sorry too,

I didn't have my favorite dream,

The one in which I hold you tight,

I had to call you up this morning

To see if everything was still all right,

Yes, I had to call you up this morning

'Cause I couldn't sleep a wink last night,

I didn't have my favorite dream,

The one in which I hold you tight

I had to call you up this morning

To see if everything was still all right,

Yes, I had to call you up this morning

Cause I couldn't Sleep A Wink Last Night

. . .


Someday
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 cheek 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 ever change
Keep that breathless charm
Won't you please arrange it
'Cause I love you
Just the way you look tonight

And that laugh
That 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

Hmm...
Hmm...
Just the way you look tonight

. . .


I'll be around,
No matter how
You treat me now
I'll be around from now on.

Your latest love
Can never last,
And when its past,
I'll be around when he's gone


Good-bye again,
And if you find a love like mine
Just now and then,
Oh drop a line to say you `re feeling fine

And when things go wrong
Perhaps you'll see
You're meant for me
So I'll be around when he's gone.

Good-bye again,
And if you find a love like mine
Just now and then,
Oh drop a line to say your feeling fine

And when things go wrong
Perhaps you'll see
You're meant for me
So I'll be around when he's gone.

. . .


You've got a hold on me
You've got that magic hold on me
When I'm alone now, I wonder
What is this power I'm under?

You cast a spell on me
That moment heaven fell on me
You've got a hold on me
What can I do?
But always hold on to you.

You cast a spell on me
That moment heaven fell on me
You've got a hold on me
What can I do?
But always hold on to you.

. . .


Some like a night at the movies, some like a dance or a show
Some are content with an evening spent home by the radio
Some like to live for the moment, some like to just reminisce
But whenever I have an evening to spend. just give me one like this
This is a lovely way to spend an evening. can't think of anything I'd rather do
This is a lovely way to spend an evening, can't think of anyone as lovely as you
A casual stroll through a garden. a kiss by a lazy lagoon
Catching a breath of moonlight, humming our favorite tune
This is a lovely way to spend an evening
I want to save all my nights and spend them with you
Catching a breath of moonlight, humming our favorite tune
This is a lovely way to spend an evening
I want to save all my nights and spend them with you

. . .


I'm not much to look at, nothin' to see
Just glad I'm livin' and happy to be
I got a woman, crazy for me
She's funny that way

I can't save a dollar, ain't worth a cent
She'd never holler, she'd live in a tent
I got a woman, crazy for me
She's funny that way

Though she'd love to work and slave for me every day
She'd be so much better off if I went away

But why should I leave her, why should I go?
She'd be unhappy without me, I know
I got a woman, crazy for me
She's funny that way

When I hurt her feelin's once in a while
Her only answer is one little smile
I got a woman, crazy for me
She's funny that way

. . .


Speak low when you speak, love
Our summer day withers away too soon, too soon
Speak low when you
speak, love
Our moment is swift, like ships adrift, we're swept apart, too soon
Speak low, darling,
speak low
Love is a spark, lost in the dark too soon, too soon
I feel wherever I go that tomorrow is
near, tomorrow is here and always too soon
Time is so old and love so brief
Love is pure gold and time
a thief
We're late, darling, we're late
The curtain descends, ev'rything ends too soon, too soon
I
wait, darling, I wait
Will you speak low to me, speak love to me and soon

. . .


Close to you, I will always stay.
Close to you, though you're far away.

You'll always be near as though you were here by my side.
No matter where - in my dreams I'll find you there
Close to me, sharing you're caress.
Can't you see you're my happiness?

Wherever you go, my heart will go, too.
What can I do?
It only wants to be close to you.

Close to me, sharing you're caress.
Can't you see you're my happiness?

Wherever you go, my heart will go, too.
What can I do?
If you knew the joys you bring
How my hungry heart would sing
If only we could be close to you.

. . .


This moment, this minute
And each second in it
Will leave a glow upon the sky
And as time goes by, it will never die

This will be my shining hour
Calm and happy and bright
And in my dreams, your face will flower
Through the darkness of the night

Like the lights of home before me
Or an angel, who's watching o'er me
This will be my shining hour
'til I'm with you again

(Like the lights of home before me)
This will be my shining hour
'til I'm with you again

. . .


Spoken:
way past your bedtime (Crowd laughs and then subsides)
Only kiddin', kids.

Long ago and far away, I dreamed a dream one day
And now that dream is here beside me
Long the skies were overcast but now the clouds have passed
You're here at last

Chills run up and down my spine, Aladdin's lamp is mine
The dream I dreamed was not denied me
Just one look and then I knew
That all I longed for long ago was you

Chills run up and down my spine, Aladdin's lamp is mine
The dream I dreamed was not denied me
Just one look and then I knew
That all I longed for long ago was you

. . .


Some other time
I could resist you, yes
Some other time
Not now

There is no rhyme
Now that I've kissed you
With all that is me, I thee endow

Imagine me thinking you could never faze me
The tricks my imagination plays me
You smile and this heart of mine betrays me
You know, it's so

Let's take a vow
True love forever
Not some other time
But now.

Imagine me thinking you could never faze me
The tricks my imagination plays me
You smile and this heart of mine betrays me
You know, that it's so

Let's take a vow
True love forever
Not some other time
But now.

. . .


Come out, come out, wherever you are (come out, come out)
I know, I know you're not very far
How I wish you'd hurry `cause I'm inclined to worry
These arms of mine are open, hopin' you'll appear
Where are ya, dear?

Come out, come out, wherever you are (wherever you are)
Come out, come out from under that star
Yes, and incident'lly, (do ya mean) ment'lly I'm not up to par
So come out, come out, come out wherever you are

Come on out, come out, wherever you are
I know, I know you're not very far
If I sound too eager, my love life has been meager
I'm just about to blow up, so show up, will ya, gal?
And be a pal

Come on out, come out, wherever you are (wherever you are, you are)
Take off (take off) take off from your Shangri-La
I have tried relaxin', Jackson, but it's the final bow
So come out, come out, come out wherever you are
(So come on out, babe)
Wherever you are (So come on out, babe)
Wherever you are (So come on out, babe)
Wherever you are

. . .

Put your dreams away for another day
And I will take their place in your heart
Wishing on a star never got you far
And so it's time to make a new start

When your dreams at night
Fade before you
Then I'll have the right
To adore you

Let your kiss confess this is happiness, darling
And put all your dreams away

. . .


I thought I knew, the magic of you
And then, you kissed me
Dear, when you kissed me
I simply stood there and gazed, completely amazed

I walked around, both feet on the ground
And then, you kissed me
Dear, when you kissed me
I found myself on a cloud, apart from the crowd

I had nothing to glow about
You came by
Now I know all there's to know about
Things like stars in the sky

I will confess I thought for awhile
That you'd resist me
But then you kissed me
And now I'm in love

I will confess I thought for awhile
That you'd resist me
But then you kissed me
And now I'm in love

You kissed me
And now I'm in love

. . .


You are the promised kiss of springtime
That makes the lonely winter seem long
You are the breathless hush of evening
That trembles on the brink of a lovely song

You are the angel-glow that lights a star
The dearest things that I know are what you are

Some day my happy arms will hold you
And some day I'll know that moment divine
When all the things you are, are mine

(You are the angel-glow that lights a star)
The dearest things that I know are what you are

Some day my happy arms will hold you
And some day I'll know that moment divine
When all the things you are, are mine!

. . .


All of me
Why not take all of me
Can't you see
I'm no good without you
Take my lips
I wanna lose them
Take my arms
I'll never use them
Your goodbye 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 wanna lose them
Why don't you take my arms
I'll never use them
Your goodbye 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

. . .


If I don't see her each day, I miss her
Gee what a thrill, each time I kiss her
Believe me, I've got a case
On Nancy, with the laughing face

She takes the winter and makes it summer
And summer could take some lessons from her
Picture a tomboy in lace
That's Nancy with the laughing face

Did you ever heard mission bells ringing
Well she'll give you the very same glow
When she speaks you would think it was singing
Just hear her say hello

I swear to goodness, you can't resist her
Sorry for you she has no sister
No angel could replace Nancy with the laughing face

Keep Betty Grable, Lamour & Turner
She makes my heart a charcoal burner
It's heaven when I embrace my Nancy with the laughing face

. . .


Sweetest little fellow, everybody knows;
Don't know what to call him but he's mighty like a rose!
Lookin' at his mammy with eyes so shiny blue,
Makes you think that heaven is comin' close to you.
When he's there a-sleepin' in his little place,
Think I see the angels looking thro' the lace.
When the dark is falling, when the shadows creep,
Then they come on tip-toe to kiss him in his sleep.
Sweetest little fellow, everybody knows,
Don't know what to call him but he's mighty like a rose!
Lookin' at his mammy with eyes so shiny blue,
Makes you think that heaven is comin' close to you.

. . .


I weave with brightly colored strings to keep my mind off other things
So, ladies, let your fingers dance, and keep your hands out of romance
Lovely witches, let the stitches, keep your fingers under control
Cut the thread, but leave the whole heart whole
Merry maids can sew and sleep, wives can only sew and weep

Falling in love with love is falling for make-believe
Falling in love with love is playing the fool
Caring too much is juvenile fancy, learning to trust is just
For children in school
I fell in love with love one night when the mood was full
I was unwise with eyes unable to see
I fell in love with love, with love everlasting
But love fell out with me

. . .


Lullaby and good night, with roses bestride,
With lilies bedecked. 'neath Baby's sweet bed.
May thou sleep, may thou rest, may thy slumber be blest.
May thou sleep, may thou rest, may thy slumber be blest.

Lullaby and good night, thy mother's delight.
Bright angels around, my darling, shall guard.
They will guide thee from harm, thou art safe in my arms.
They will guide thee from harm, thou art safe in my arms.

. . .


I'll follow my secret heart my whole life through,
I'll keep all my dreams apart till one comes true.
No matter what price is paid, what stars may fade above,
I'll follow my secret heart, till I find love.

. . .


I feel the autumn breeze, it steals cross my pillow, as soft as a will-o'-the-wisp
And in its song there is sadness because there's no you
The lonely autumn trees, how softly they're sighing
For summer is dying they know
That in my heart there's no gladness because there's no you
The park that we walked in. the garden we talked in
How lonesome they seem in the fall, the stormy clouds hover and falling leaves cover
Our favorite nook in the wall, in spring we'll meet again, we'll kiss and recapture
The summertime rapture we knew,
And from that day never more will I say there's no you
The stormy clouds hover and falling leaves cover our favorite nook in the wall
In spring we'll meet again, we'll kiss and recapture, the summertime rapture we knew
And from that day never more will I say there's no you

. . .


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
But 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

. . .


Let me love you tonight, let me tell you how much I adore all your charms,
Though you leave me tomorrow, for this night we'll borrow a love song.
Let me love you tonight, let me thrill to the touch of your sheltering arms,
Till the scent of the roses, caresses the sky and closes your eyes.
Let me kiss you tonight, while the stars in the sky give a heavenly light,
So, love is an ember, my heart will remember your sighs,
Live a lifetime of love in a moment like this,
Darling, let me love you tonight.

. . .


Just close your eyes
Dream a lovely dream
As our arms entwine
Your lips on mine

Just close your eyes
Let your heart reveal
What you're thinking of
Please say it's love

Don't let this glow
Forever disappear
Let me always know
That you'll be near, dear

Just close your eyes
And perhaps you'll see
Where our future lies
When you re-open your eyes

. . .


If you are but a dream, I hope I never waken,
It's more than I could bear to find that I'm forsaken.
If you're a fantasy, then I'm content to be
In love with lovely you,
And pray my dream comes true.
I long to kiss you but I would not dare,
I'm so afraid that you may vanish in the air,
So darling, if our romance should break up,
I hope I never wake up, if you are but a dream.
I long to kiss you but I would not dare,
I'm so afraid that you may vanish in the air,
So darling, if our romance should break up,
I hope I never wake up, if you are but a dream.

. . .


Strange music in my ears,
Only now as you spoke did it start,
Strange music of the sphere,
Could its lovely hum be coming from my heart?

You appear and I hear song sublime,
Song that I'm incapable of,
So dear, let me hold you near,
While we treasure every measure,
So that time can never change
The strange new music of love.

You appear and I hear song sublime,
Song that I'm incapable of,
So dear, let me hold you near,
While we treasure every measure,
So that time can never change
The strange new music of love.

. . .


Lullaby and good night, with roses bestride,
With lilies bedecked. 'neath Baby's sweet bed.
May thou sleep, may thou rest, may thy slumber be blest.
May thou sleep, may thou rest, may thy slumber be blest.

Lullaby and good night, thy mother's delight.
Bright angels around, my darling, shall guard.
They will guide thee from harm, thou art safe in my arms.
They will guide thee from harm, thou art safe in my arms.

. . .


I'll soon become a wreck
They're breathin' on my neck
Dick Haymes, Dick Todd, and Como

They're really coming fast
Who knows I may be passed
By Dick Haymes, Dick Todd, and Como

The fact that girlies scream
They say will cause me grief
But if they ever stop
I'll find that I'm back on relief
It'll mean the end of me
Good news for Tommy D
And Dick Haymes, Dick Todd, and Como

Why should it get their goat
Each time I bend a note
Dick Haymes, Dick Todd, and Como

At my pictures, they throw rocks
They're both at Twentieth Fox
Not Dick Todd, but Dick Haymes, and Como

They say that I need weight
I'm just a mass of joints
I'd like to put on weight
But where the heck can I get points
If at RKO I pout, they look at me and shout,
"Dick Haymes, Dick Todd, and Como"

Everytime I sing,
I'm compared with Bing
by Dick Haymes, Dick Todd, and Como

Bing's four boys are sublime
But they won't give me time
Dick Haymes, Dick Todd, and Perry
(that's the other guy's first name)

I'll never sing like Bing
I know I don't compare
I'll grant them he's got voice
If they'll grant me, that I've got hair

But then why all this fuss
There's room for all of us
Dick Haymes, Dick Todd, and Como
There's just one Crosby
There's room for all of us

. . .


None but the lonely heart can know my sadness
Alone and parted far from joy and gladness
Heaven's boundless arch I see spread about above me
O what a distance dear to one who loves me
None but the lonely heart can know my sadness
Alone and parted far from joy and gladness
Alone and parted far from joy and gladness
My senses fail, a burning fire devours me,
None but the lonely heart can know my sadness

. . .


Here we all work 'long the Mississippi
Here we all work while the white folk play
Pullin' them boats from the dawn till sunset
Gettin' no rest till the judgment day

Don't look up and don't look down
Ya don't dast make the white boss frown
Bend your knees and bow your head
And pull that rope until you're dead

Let me go 'way from the Mississippi
Let me go 'way from the white man boss
Show me that stream called the River Jordan
That's the old stream that I long to cross

Ol' Man River, that Ol' Man River
He must know somepin', but he don't say nothin'
He just keeps rollin', he keeps on rollin' along

He don't plant taters, and he don't plant cotton
And them what plants 'em is soon forgotten
But Ol' Man River, jest keeps rollin' along

You and me, we sweat and strain
Bodies all achin' and wracked with pain
Tote that barge and lift that bale
Ya get a little drunk and ya lands in jail

I gets weary and so sick of tryin'
I'm tired of livin', but I'm feared of dyin'
And Ol' Man River, he just keeps rollin' along

. . .


I miss the thrill of grammar school romances
I miss the junior prom and graduation dances
The gossip in assembly hall
I'm homesick, that's all

I miss the gang that hangs around at Miller's
Devouring chocolate sodas, with those whipped cream fillers
The girl I promised I would call
I'm homesick, that's all

I miss the midnight services on Christmas Eve
And the joy when Christmas morning came
I miss the scramble for the wishbone every Sunday
And the big Thanksgiving football game

I miss the times I had to set the table
I miss the rolls my mother made when she was able
The fragrant bonfires in the fall
I'm homesick, that's all

I miss the times I had to set the table
I miss the rolls my mother made when she was able
The fragrant bonfires in the fall
I'm homesick, that's all

. . .


The night is young and you're so beautiful,
Here among the shadows, beautiful lady, open you heart.
The scene is set, the breezes sing of it,
Can't you get into the swing of it, lady, when do we start?
When the lady is kissable and the evening is cool,
Any dream is permissible in the heart of a fool.
The moon is high and you're so glamorous,
And if I seem over amorous, lady, what can I do?
The night is young and I'm in love with you.

. . .


do you make the most of your five senses,
Or is your life like Old Mother Hubbard's shelf?
Well, mark this on your slate,
Life is not an empty plate.
That's if you appreciate yourself.

Ev'ry time you're near a rose,
Aren't you glad you've got a nose?
And if the dawn is fresh with dew,
Aren't you glad you're you?
When a meadowlark appears,
Aren't you glad you've got two ears?
And if your heart is singing, too,
Aren't you glad you're you?
You can see a summer sky,
Or touch a friendly hand,
Or taste an apple pie.
Pardon the grammar, but ain't life grand?
And when you wake up each morn,
Aren't you glad that you were born?
Think what you've got the whole day through,
Aren't you glad you're you?

. . .


If the nightingales could sing like you
They'd sing much sweeter than they do
For you brought a new kind of love to me

And if the sandman brought me dreams of you
I'd want to sleep my whole life through
You brought a new love to me

I know that I'm the slave, you're the queen
Still you can understand that underneath it all
You're a maid and I am only a man

I would work and slave the whole day through
If I could hurry home to you
You brought a new kind of love to me

. . .


(I'll never smile again until I smile at you)
(I'll never laugh again) What good would it do?

For tears would fill my eyes
My heart would realize
That our romance is through

(I'll never love again, I'm so in love with you)
(I'll never thrill again to somebody new)

Within my heart
I know I will never start
(To smile again)
Until I smile at you

Within my heart
I know I will never start
(To smile again)
Until I smile at you

(Until I smile at you)

. . .

Without a song, the day would never end
Without a song, the road would never have been
When things go wrong, a man ain't got a friend
Without a song

That field of corn, would never see a plow
That field of corn, would be deserted now
A man is born, but he's no good no how
Without a song

I've got my trouble and woe, but sure as I know
The Jordan will roll
I'll get along, as long as a song
Is strung in my soul

I'll never know, what makes the rain to fall
I'll never know, what makes the grass so tall
I only know, there ain't no love at all
Without a song

. . .


Was the last time I saw you, the last time?
Or can I hope to hold you once more?
What about me, could have made you doubt me?
Want to live without me?
Loving me no more?

From the first time I saw you, I loved you
And to me, darling, you were romance
Was the last time I saw you, the last time?
Or will you give love one more chance?

From the first time I saw you, I loved you
And to me, darling, you were romance
Was the last time I saw you, the last time?
Or will you give love one more chance?

. . .


Don't forget tonight tomorrow though we may be far apart,
If you forget tonight tomorrow, you'll leave me with a broken heart.
Are your kisses only mine tomorrow, say you love me and you will be true.
And don't forget tonight tomorrow, don't forget that I'm love with you.

. . .


It was just a neighborhood dance, that's all what it was,
But, oh, what it seemed to be.
It was like a masquerade ball with costumes and all
`Cause you were at the dance with me.

It was just a ride on the train, that's all that it was,
But, oh,what it seemed to be.
It was like a trip to the stars, to Venus and Mars
`Cause you were on the train with me.

And when I kissed you, darling, it was more than just a thrill for me.
It was a promise, darling, of the things that fate had willed for me.
It was just a wedding in June, that's all that it was,
But oh what it seemed to be.
It was like a royal affair with everyone there
`Cause you said "Yes, I do" to me.

It was just a wedding in June, that's all that it was,
But oh what it seemed to be.
It was like a royal affair with everyone there
`Cause you said "Yes, I do" to me.

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 melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
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?

(When all the world is a whole glass jumbled
And the raindrops tumble all around
There's an old place of magic ways)

A place behind the sun
Just a step behind the rainbow

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?

. . .

Where Is My Bess

[No lyrics]

. . .


My romance doesn't have to have a moon in the sky
My romance doesn't need a blue lagoon standing by

No month of May
No twinkling stars
No hideaway
No soft guitars

My romance doesn't need a castle rising in Spain
Nor a dance to a constantly surprising refrain
Wide awake, I can make the most fantastic dream come true
My romance doesn't need a thing but you

(My romance doesn't have to have a moon in the sky
My romance doesn't need a blue lagoon standing by)

No month of May
No twinkling stars
No hideaway
No soft guitars

My romance doesn't need a castle rising in Spain
Nor a dance to a constantly surprising refrain
Wide awake, I can make the most fantastic dream come true
My romance doesn't need a thing but you

. . .


I hear music when I look at you
A beautiful theme of every dream I ever knew
Down deep in my heart
I hear it play
I feel it start
Then melt away

I hear music when I touch your hand
A beautiful melody from some enchanted land
Down deep in my heart
I hear it say
'Is this the day?'

I alone have heard this lovely strain
I alone have heard this glad refrain
'Must it be forever inside of me?
Why can't I let it go?
Why can't I let you know
Why can't I let you know the song my heart would sing?'
That beautiful rhapsody of love and youth and spring
The music is sweet
The words are true
The song is you

Why can't I let you know the song my heart would sing?
That beautiful rhapsody of love and youth and spring
The music is sweet
The words are true
The song is you

. . .


I fall in love with you ev'ry day
The thrill is always new, ev'ry day
The sun may shine, the rain may fall
And icy winds may blow
You smile at me and all I see
Are blossoms in the snow

I thank my lucky star ev'ry day
That you are as you are, ev'ry day
The years may come
The years may go
If we're still here I'll say
I fall in love with you ev'ry day

. . .


They say that falling in love is wonderful
It's wonderful, so they say

And with a moon up above, it's wonderful
It's wonderful, so they tell me

I can't recall who said it
I know I never read it
I only know they tell me that love is grand

And the thing that's known as romance is wonderful, wonderful
In every way, so they say

To leave your house some morning
And without any warning
You're stopping people, shouting that love is grand

And to hold a girl in your arms is wonderful, wonderful
In every way
So they say

. . .


You are too beautiful
my dear, to be true
and I am a fool for beauty
fooled by a feeling
that because I had found you
I could have bound you to me.

You are too beautiful
for one man alone
one lucky fool to be with
when there are other men
with eyes of their own
to see with.

Love does not stand sharing
not if one cares
have you been comparing
my every kiss with theirs?

If on the other hand
I'm faithful to you
it's not from a sense of duty
you are too beautiful
and I am a fool
for beauty.

. . .


I'm gonna love you, like nobody's loved you
Come rain or come shine
High as a mountain, deep as a river
Come rain or come shine

I guess when you met me
It was just one of those things
But don't you ever bet me
'Cause I'm gonna be true if you let me

You're gonna love me, like nobody's loved me
Come rain or come shine
We'll be happy together, unhappy together
Now won't that be just fine

The days may be cloudy or sunny
We're in or out of the money
But I'm with you always
I'm with you rain or shine

. . .


Don't know why
There’s no sun up in the sky
Stormy weather
Since my gal and I
Ain't together
Keeps raining all the time

Life is bare
Gloom and misery everywhere
Stormy weather
Just can't get my poor old self together
I'm weary all the time
The time
So weary all the time

When she went away
The blues walked in and they met
If she stays away that old rocking chair's gonna get me
All I do is pray the Lord above will let me
Walk in the sun once more

Can't go on
Everything I have is gone
Stormy weather
Since my gal and I
Ain't together
Keeps raining all the time
Keeps raining all the time

When she went away
The blues walked in and met me
If he stays away old rocking chair will get me
All I do is pray the Lord above will let me
Walk in the sun once more

Can't go on
Everything I had is gone
Stormy weather
Since my gal and I
Ain't together
Keeps raining all the time
The time
Keeps raining all the time
