Deep within my heart lies a melody A song of old San Antone Where in dreams I live with a memory Beneath the stars, all alone It was there I found, beside the Alamo Enchantment strange as the blue up above A moonlit pass that only she would know Still hears my broken song of love Moon in all your splendor, know only my heart Call back my rose, rose of San Antone Lips so sweet and tender, like petals falling apart Speak once again of my love, my own Broken song, empty words I know Still live in my heart all alone For that moonlit pass by the Alamo And rose, my rose of San Antone
The other night dear, as I lay sleeping I dreamed I held you in my arms But when I awoke, dear, I was mistaken So I hung my head and I cried. You are my sunshine, my only sunshine You make me happy when skies are gray You'll never know dear, how much I love you Please don't take my sunshine away I'll always love you and make you happy, If you will only say the same. But if you leave me and love another, You'll regret it all some day: You are my sunshine, my only sunshine You make me happy when skies are gray You'll never know dear, how much I love you Please don't take my sunshine away You told me once, dear, you really loved me And no one else could come between. But not you've left me and love another; You have shattered all of my dreams: You are my…
Nothing could be finer Than to be in Carolina In the morning. No one could be sweeter Than my sweetie when I meet her In the morning. When the morning glories Twine around the door Whispering pretty stories I long to hear once more Strolling with my girlie Where the dew is pearly early In the morning. Butterflies all flutter up And kiss each little buttercup At dawning. If I had Aladdin's lamp For only a day I'd make a wish And here's what I'd say Nothing could be finer Than to be in Carolina In the morning.
Corrine, Corrina; Where'd you stay last night? Corrine, Corrina; Where'd you stay last night? Came home this mornin'; Sun was shinin' bright. Goodbye Corrina; This is fare thee well Goodbye Corrina; This is fare thee well When I get back, Babe; Lawd! you never can tell.
Amapola 03:16
Amapola, lindisima amapola Sera siempre mi alma Tuya sola Yo te quiero amada niña mía Igual que ama la flor la luz del día Amapola, lindisima amapola No seas tan ingrata Mirame Amapola, amapola Como puedes tu vivir tan sola. Amapola, my pretty little poppy You're like the lovely flower So sweet and heavenly. Since I found you My heart is wrapped around you And loving you it seems to beat a rhapsody. Amapola, my pretty little poppy Must copy its endearing charm from you. Amapola, amapola How I long to hear you say, "I love you!"
La Paloma 03:35
Ein Wind weht von Süd und zieht mich hinaus auf See, mein Kind, sei nicht traurig, tut auch der Abschied weh. Mein Herz geht an Bord und fort muss die Reise geh'n, Dein Schmerz wird vergeh'n und schön wird das Wiederseh'n. Mich trägt die Sehnsucht fort in die blaue Ferne, unter mir Meer und über mir Nacht und Sterne. Vor mir die Welt - so treibt mich der Wind des Lebens. Wein' nicht, mein Kind, die Tränen, die sind vergebens. Auf Matrosen - ohe! Einmal muss es vorbei sein. Nur Erinnerung an Stunden der Liebe bleibt noch an Land zurück. Seemannsbraut ist die See und nur ihr kann er treu sein! Wenn der Sturmwind sein Lied singt dann winkt mir der großen Freiheit Glück. Wie blau ist das Meer - wie groß kann der Himmel sein. Ich schau hoch vom Mastkorb weit in die Welt hinein. Nach vorn geht mein Blick- zurück darf kein Seemann schauen. Kap Horn liegt auf Lee - jetzt heißt es auf Gott vertrauen. Seemann gib Acht, Denn strahlt auch als Gruß des Friedens Hell durch die Nacht Das leuchtende Kreuz des Südens, Schroff ist ein Riff Und schnell geht ein Schiff zugrunde, Früh oder spät schlägt Jedem von uns die Stunde. Auf Matrosen ohé! Einmal muss es vorbei sein, Einmal holt uns die See. Und das Meer gibt keinen Von uns zurück. Seemanns Braut ist die See Und nur ihr kann er treu sein, Wenn der Sturmwind sein Lied singt, Dann winkt mir Der großen Freiheit Glück. La Paloma adé Auf Matrosen, ohé! Ohé!
Sugar 03:18
Sugar I call my baby my sugar I never maybe my sugar That's why baby is so Confectionary Funny, she never pleads for my money But when she feeds me on honey She gets her needs every time I'd make a million trips to her lips If I were a bee 'Cause they are sweeter than any honey to me They're granulated Sugar I never cheat on my sugar Cause I'm too sweet on my sugar That sugar baby of mine.
I hate to see that evening sun go down I hate to see that evening sun go down Cause my baby, she's gone left this town Feelin' tomorrow like I feel today If I'm feelin' tomorrow like I feel today I'll pack my truck and make my give-a-way St. Louis woman with her diamond ring Has got this man wrapped round her apron strings, if it wasn't for powder and for store bought hair That gal of mine wouldn't have gone nowhere, nowhere I got the St. Louis blues, blues as I can be That gal's got a heart like a rock cast in the sea Or else she wouldn't have gone so far from me I love my gal like a school boy loves his pie Like an old Kentucky colonel loves his Russian rye Yeah, I'll love that gal until the day I die
Sweet Sue 02:20
Every star above Knows the one I love Sweet You It's you And the moon up high Knows the reason why Sweet Sue Just You No one else it seems Ever shares my dreams And without you dear I don't know what i'd do In this heart of mine You'll live all the time Sweet Sue Just you!
