BLUE MOON

Blue Moon
You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
Blue Moon
You knew just what I was there for
You heard me saying a prayer for
Someone I really could care for
And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will ever hold
I heard somebody whisper please adore me
And when I looked the Moon had turned to gold
Blue Moon
Now I’m no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will ever hold
I heard somebody whisper please adore me
And when I looked the Moon had turned to gold
Blue moon
Now I’m no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

NIGHT AND DAY

Night and day, you are the one
Only you beneath the moon and under the sun
Whether near to me or far
It’s no matter darling where you are
I think of you day and night
Night and day why is it so
That this longing for you follows wherever I go
In the roaring traffic’s boom
Or the silence of my lonely room
I think of you day and night
Night and day under the hide of me
There’s an oh such a hungry yearning, burning inside of me
And its torment won’t be through
’til you let me spend my life making love to you
Day and night, night and day
Night and day under the hide of me
There’s an oh such a hungry yearning, burning inside of me
And its torment won’t be through
’til you let me spend my life making love to you
Day and night, night and day

DON’T FENCE ME IN

Oh, give me land, lots of land under starry skies above
Don’t fence me in
Let me ride through the wide open country that I love
Don’t fence me in
Let me be by myself in the evening breeze
Listen to the murmur of the cottonwood trees
Send me off forever but I ask you please
Don’t fence me in
Just turn me loose, let me straddle my old saddle
Underneath the western sky
On my cayuse, let me wander over yonder
Till I see the mountains rise
I want to ride to the ridge where the west commences
Gaze at the moon till I lose my senses
Can’t look at hobbles and I can’t stand fences
Don’t fence me in
Just turn me loose, let me straddle my old saddle
Underneath the western sky
On my cayuse, let me wander over yonder
Till I see the mountains rise
I want to ride to the ridge where the west commences
Gaze at the moon till I lose my senses
I can’t look at hobbles and I can’t stand fences
Don’t fence me in

I’M LOOKING OVER A FOUR LEAF CLOVER

I’m looking over a four-leaf clover
That I overlooked before.
One leaf is sunshine, the second is rain,
Third is the roses that grow in the lane.
No need explaining, the one remaining
Is somebody I adore.
I’m looking over a four-leaf clover
That I overlooked before.

SENTIMENTAL JOURNEY

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 reservation,
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 waiting 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.
Seven, that’s the time we leave at seven.
I’ll be waiting 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.

SOME ENCHANTED EVENING

Some enchanted evening
You may see a stranger
You may see a stranger across a crowded room
And somehow you know
You know even then
That somewhere you’ll see her again and again
Some enchanted evening
Someone may be laughing
You may hear her laughing across a crowded room
And night after night
As strange as it seems
The sound of her laughter will sing in your dreams
Who can explain it?
Who can tell you why?
Fools give you reasons
Wise men never try
Some enchanted evening
When you find your true love
When you feel her call you across a crowded room
Then fly to her side
And make her your own
Or all through your life you may dream all alone
Once you have found her never let her go
Once you have found her never let her go

TENNESSEE WALTZ

I was dancing with my darling
To the Tennessee Waltz
When an old friend I happened to see
Introduced her to my loved one
And while they were dancing
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 darling
The night they were playing
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz
I was dancing with my darling
To the Tennessee Waltz
When an old friend I happened to see
Introduced her to my loved one
And while they were dancing
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 darling
The night they were playing
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz

GOODNIGHT IRENE

Irene goodnight, Irene goodnight.
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene, I’ll see you in my dreams.
I asked your mother for you, She told me that you were too young.
I wished I’d never had seen your face, I’m sorry you ever was born.
Irene goodnight, Irene goodnight.
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene, I’ll see you in my dreams
Sometimes I live in the country, sometimes I live in town.
Sometimes I have a great notion, to jump in the river and drown.
Irene goodnight, Irene goodnight.
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene, I’ll see you in my dreams.
Stop ramblin’, stop gamblin’, Stop stayin’ out late every night.
Go home to your wife and family, stay there by the fireside bright.
Irene goodnight, Irene goodnight.
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene, I’ll see you in my dreams.
I love Irene, God knows I do, I’ll love her till the sea run dry.
If Irene turns her back on me, I’d take morphine and die.
Irene goodnight, Irene goodnight.
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene, I’ll kiss you in my dreams.

COLD COLD HEART

I tried so hard my dear to show that you’re my every dream
Yet you’re afraid each thing I do is just some evil scheme
A memory from your lonesome past keeps us so far apart
Why can’t I free your doubtful mind and melt your cold cold heart
Another love before my time made your heart sad and blue
And so my heart is paying now for things I didn’t do
In anger unkind words are said that make the teardrops start
Why can’t I free your doubtful mind and melt your cold cold heart
There was a time when I believed that you belonged to me
But now I know your heart is shackled to a memory
The more I learn to care for you, the more we drift apart
Why can’t I free your doubtful mind and melt your cold cold heart

YOU BELONG TO ME

See the pyramids along the Nile
Watch the sun rise on a tropic isle
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 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

THIS OLE HOUSE

This ole house once knew his children
This ole house once knew his wife
This ole house was home and comfort
As they fought the storms of life
This ole house once rang with laughter
This ole house heard many shouts
Now he trembles in the darkness
When the lightnin’ walks about
Ain’t a-gonna need this house no longer
Ain’t a-gonna need this house no more
Ain’t got time to fix the shingles
Ain’t got time to fix the floor
Ain’t got time to oil the hinges
Nor to mend the windowpane
Ain’t gonna need this house no longer
He’s a-gettin’ ready to meet the saints
This ole house is a-gettin’ shaky
This ole house is a-gettin’ old
This ole house lets in the rain
This ole house lets in the cold
Oh his knees are a-gettin’ chilly
But he feels no fear of pain
‘Cause he sees an angel peeking
Through a broken windowpane
This ole house is afraid of thunder
This ole house is afraid of storms
This ole house just groans and trembles
When the night wind flings its arms
This ole house is a-gettin’ feeble
This ole house is a-needin’ paint
Just like him it’s tuckered out
But he’s a-gettin’ ready to meet the saints

MACK THE KNIFE

Oh, the shark, babe, has such teeth, dear
And it shows them pearly white
Just a jackknife has old MacHeath, babe
And he keeps it, ah, out of sight
Ya know when that shark bites with his teeth, babe
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves, oh, wears old MacHeath, babe
So there’s never, never a trace of red
Now on the sidewalk, huh, huh, whoo sunny morning, un huh
Lies a body just oozin’ life, eek
And someone’s sneakin’ ‘round the corner
Could that someone be our boy old Mack the Knife?
There’s a tugboat, huh, huh, down by the river don’tcha know
Where a concrete bag’s just a’drooppin’ on down
And that concrete is just for the weight, dear
Five’ll get ya ten old Macky he’s back in town
Now d’ja hear ‘bout Louie Miller? He disappeared, dear
After drawin’ out all his hard-earned cash
And MacHeath spends just like a sailor
Could it be our boy’s done somethin’ rash?
Now Jenny Diver, ho, ho, yeah, Sukey Tawdry
Ooh, Miss Lotte Lenya and old Lucy Brown
Oh, the line forms on the right, babe
Now that Macky’s back in town
I said Jenny Diver, whoa, Sukey Tawdry
Look out to Miss Lotte Lenya and old Lucy Brown
Yes, the line forms on the right, babe
Now that Macky’s…Macky’s back in town…
Look out, old Macky’s back!!

LONELY BOY

I’m just a lonely boy, Lonely and blue,
I’m all alone, With nothin’ to do.
I’ve got everything, You could think of,
But all I want, Is someone to love.
Someone, yes, someone to love,
Someone to kiss, Someone to hold, At a moment like this.
I’d like to hear, Somebody say,
I’ll give you my love, Each night and day.
I’m just a lonely boy, Lonely and blue,
I’m all alone, With nothin’ to do.
I’ve got everything, You could think of,
But all I want, Is someone to love.
Somebody, somebody, Somebody, please,
Send her to me, I’ll make her happy, Just wait and see.
I prayed so hard, To the heavens above,
That I’m gonna find, Someone to love.
I’m just a lonely boy, lonely and blue,
I’m all alone, With nothin’ to do.
I’ve got everything, You could think of,
But all I want, Is someone to love.
