Let me entertain you
Let me make you smile
Let me do a few tricks
Some old and then some new tricks
I'm very versatile

And if you're real good
I'll make you feel good
I want your spirits to climb
So let me entertain you
And we'll have a real good time, yes sir
We'll have a real good time

And if you're real good
I'll make you feel good
I want your spirits to climb
So let me entertain you
And we'll have a real good time, yes sir
We'll have a real good time

Have you heard these blues that I am gonna sing to you?
When you hear them they will thrill you through and through.
They're the sweetest blues you've ever heard;
Now listen and don't say a word:

CHORUS
Sugar blues,
Everybody's singing the sugar blues,
The whole town town is ringing;
My lovin' man, sweet as can be,
The doggone fool turned sour on me!

I'm so unhappy, I feel so sad,
I could lay me down and die.
You can say what you choose,
But I'm all confused,
I've got the sweet, sweet sugar blues.
More sugar,
I got the sugar blues.

CHORUS
Sugar blues,
Everybody's singin' the sugar blues.
My lovin' man, as sweet as can be,
The doggone fool turned sour on me!

I'm so unhappy, feel so unhappy,
I could lay me down and die.
You can say what you choose,
But I'm all confused.
I've got the sweet, sweet sugar blues.
More sugar,
I got the sweet sugar blues.

Ooooooo ... you can say what you choose,
But I'm all confused.
Baby got the sugar blues,
Baby got the sugar blues.

REFRAIN
I want to be happy
But I won't be happy
Till I make you happy, too.
Life's really worth living
When we are mirth giving -
Why can't I give some to you?

When skies are gray
And you say you are blue
I'll send the sun smiling through.*
I want to be happy
But I won't be happy
Till I make you happy, too.

REPEAT REFRAIN
I want to be happy,
But I won't be happy
Till I make you happy, too.
Life's really worth living
When we are mirth giving -
Why can't I give some to you?

When skies are gray
And you say you are blue
I'll send the sun smiling through to you.*
I want to be happy
But I won't be happy
Till I make you happy, too.

I want to be happy
But I won't be happy
Till I make you happy, too.

She loves me, she loves me not
She loves me, she loves me not
She loves me, she loves me.
The lady loves me and it shows
In spite of the way she turns up her nose
I'm her ideal, her hearts desire
Under that ice she's burning like fire
She'd like to cuddle up to me
She's playing hard to get
The lady loves me, but she doesn't know it yet
The gentleman has savoir-faire
As much as an elephant or a bear
I'd like to take him for a spin
Back to the zoo to visit his kin
He's got about as much appeal as a soggy cigarette
The lady loathes him but he doesn't know it yet
The lady's got a crush on me
The gentleman's crazy obviously
The lady's dying to be kissed
The gentleman needs a psychiatrist
I'd rather kiss a rattlesnake
Or play Russian roulette
The lady loves me, but she doesn't know it yet
She's falling fast she's on the skids
Both of his heads are flipping their lids
Tonight she'll hold me in her arms
I'd rather be holding hydrogen bombs
Will someone tell this Romeo
I'm not his Juliet
The lady loves me, but she doesn't know it yet
She wants me
Like poison ivy
Oh, needs me
Like a hole in the head
Everyone can see she's got it bad
He's mad!
The gentleman is an egotist
Ha!, I'm simply aware I'm hard to resist
He's one man I could learn to hate
So how's about having dinner at eight?
I'd rather dine with Frankenstein
In a moonlight tete-a-tete
The lady loves me, but she doesn't know it yet
Oh yes she loves me
Dig that shrinking violet
Oh she really loves me
Here's one gal you'll never get
She lo- lo- loves me
Would you like to make a bet?
I said the lady loves me
The gentleman's all wet!

Rhythm and romance,
Romance and rhythm,
Taught me to sparkle anew,
Brought me remarkable you, sweetheart.

Rhythm and romance,
Romance and rhythm,
An inconceivable pair,
That gave our budding affair its start.

The stars gleam,
The moon beams,
The skies seem to smile.
The breeze cries*, the trees sigh,
Please stay around for awhile.

Rhythm and romance,
Romance and rhythm,
A combination so real,
An invitation to steal your heart.

(big band interlude with Nina doing a brief non-verbal scale)

The stars gleam,
The moon beams,
The skies seem to smile.
The breeze cries*, the trees sigh,
Please stay around for awhile.

Rhythm and romance,
Romance and rhythm,
A combination so real,
An invitation to steal your heart.

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?

If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can't I?

. . .


If you ever should leave,
Why would I want to live?
Darling you must believe,
Won't you try to forgive?

What a fool I would be,
If I fooled with your love for me.
I'd be wrong from the start,
I'd be unfair to my heart.

Oh, whatever you do,
Don't you say that we're through,
I'd do nothing but grieve,
If you ever should leave.

{repeat all three stanzas}

I'd do nothing but grieve,
If you ever should leave.

. . .


Never know how much I love you
Never know how much I care
When you put your arms around me
I get a fever that's so hard to bear

You give me fever when you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning
Fever all through the night.

Ev'rybody's got the fever
That is something you all know
Fever isn't such a new thing
Fever started long ago

Sun lights up the daytime
Moon lights up the night
I light up when you call my name
And you know I'm gonna treat you right

You give me fever when you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning
Fever all through the night

Romeo loved juliet
Juliet she felt the same
When he put his arms around her
He said 'Julie, baby, you're my flame
Thou giv-est fever when we kisseth
Fever with the flaming youth
Fever I'm afire
Fever yea I burn for sooth'

Captain smith and Pocahontas
Had a very mad affair
When her daddy tried to kill him
She said 'Daddy, o, don't you dare
He gives me fever with his kisses
Fever when he holds me tight
Fever, I'm his misses,
Oh daddy, won't you treat him right

Now you've listened to my story
Here's the point that I have made
Cats were born to give chicks fever
Be it fahrenheit or centigrade
They give you fever when you kiss them
Fever if you live and learn
Fever till you sizzle
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn

. . .


Love and kisses,
Never misses,
Making a heaven for two.
Please pretend de'r,
Sweet surrender,
Coming from someone like you.

You're perfection,
To affection,
Being a perfect design.
Love has found us,
Joy has found us,
Planning a future devine.

No indecision,
I know that my vision is blue,
When you are new.
No need for sunlight,
For you are the one light,
I see so real to me.

Love and kisses,
That's what bliss is,
The thing whatever you do.
For completeness,
Whisper sweetness,
Coming from someone like you.

Ooo, all over nothing at all,
You built me up to a waterfall,
We made up and then,
Quarreled again,
All over nothing at all.

You pinned a note to the wall,
I thought at least you would call,
But I never heard,
Not even a word,
All over nothing at all.

If you ever come back,
Well, I'd be so nice to you.
If you never come back,
I'll be with the crazies,
Pushing up the daisies.

I watch the clock on the wall,
Wait for your step in the hall,
It's hard to conceive,
Hard to believe,
It's all over nothing at all.

(big band interlude)

Ooo, all l over nothing at all,
You built me up to a waterfall,
We made up and then,
All over again,
All over nothing at all.

You pinned a note to the wall,
I thought at least you would call,
But I never heard,
Not even a word,
All over nothing at all.

If you ever come back,
I'd be so nice to you.
If you never come back,
I'd be with the crazies,
Pushing up the daisies.

I watch the clock on the wall,
Wait for your step in the hall.
Say, it's hard to conceive,
Hard to believe,
It's over and we're all through.

It's hard to conceive,
Hard to believe,
It's all over nothing at all,
All over nothing at all.

. . .


You say "either" and I say "either"
You say "neither" I say "neither"
"Either" "either", "neither" "neither"
Let's call the whole thing off
You say "potato," I say "patattah"
You say "tomato", I say "creole tomata"
Oh, let's call the whole thing off
Oh, if we call the whole thing off
Then we must part and oh
If we ever part, that would break my heart
So, I say "ursta" you say "oyster"
I'm not gonna stop eatin' urstas just cause you say oyster,
Oh, let's call the whole thing off
Oh, I say "pajamas", you say "pajamas"
Sugar, what's the problem?
Oh, for we know we need each other so
We'd better call the calling off off
So let's call it off, oh let's call it off
Oh, let's call it off, baby let's call it off
Sugar why don't we call it off,
I'm talking baby why call it off
Call it off¡¬
Let's call the whole thing off

. . .


Love here in the starlit hour
Oh, heaven is in your eyes
While the wind is sobbing
Underneath the stars
Both our hearts are throbbing
Like two guitars

Love here in the starlit hour
Night whispering lullabies
Let me dream forever
Underneath the silvery skies

Will it be just as sweet again,
The glamor, the glory that we know
Will I find when we meet again
The glamor, the glory's still a glow

But tonight let us forget tomorrow
Here under the midnight blue
Love will bloom and flower
In the starlit hour with you...
