Sweet Sue 02:18
LYRICS: Every star above Knows the one I love Sweet Sue, it's you And the moon on high Knows the reason why Sweet Sue, it's you No one else it seems Ever shared my dreams And without you I don't know what I'd do In this heart of mine You live all the time Sweet Sue, just you

LYRICS: I can't give you anything but love, baby. That's the only thing I've plenty of,baby. Dream awhile, scheme awhile You're sure to find Happiness and I guess All those things you've always pined for. Gee I like to see you looking swell, baby. Diamond bracelets Woolworth doesn't sell. Till that lucky day you know darn well, baby. I can't give you anything but love.

LYRICS: Gee, it's great after being out late, Walking my baby back home. Arm and arm over meadow and farm, Walking my baby back home. We go along harmonising a song, Or I'm reciting a poem. Owls go by and they give me the eye, Walking my baby back home. We stop for a while, she gives me a smile, And snuggles her head on my chest. We start in to pet and that's when I get Her talcum all over my vest. After I kind of straighten my tie, She has to borrow my comb. One kiss then I continue again, Walking my baby back home.

Blue Skies 03:07
LYRICS: Blue skies Smiling at me Nothing but blue skies Do I see Bluebirds Singing a song Nothing but bluebirds All day long Never saw the sun shining so bright Never saw things going so right Noticing the days hurrying by When you're in love, oh, my how they fly Blue days All of them gone Nothing but blue skies From now on

LYRICS: 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. Where 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.

LYRICS: 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. Oh, but 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 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
7.
LYRICS: When skies are cloudy and gray They're only gray for a day So wrap your troubles in dreams Dream your troubles away Until that sunshine peeps through There's only one thing to do Wrap your troubles in dreams And dream your troubles away Castles may tumble, that's fate after all Life's really funny that way No use to grumble, just smile as they fall Weren't you king for a day? Must remember the sunshine Always follows the rain Wrap your troubles in dreams And dream your troubles away

Am I Blue? 05:06
LYRICS: Am I blue Am I blue Ain't these tears in my eyes tellin' you Am I blue You would be too If your plans with your gal Done fell through There was a time I was the only one And now I'm the sad and lonely one, lonely, lonely Was I gay, until today Now she's gone and we're through Am I blue
9.
LYRICS: I hate to see that evening sun go down, Hate to see that evening sun go down, 'Cause my gal, she done left this town. If I'm feelin' tomorrow like I feel today. If I'm feelin' tomorrow like I feel today, I'm gonna pack my bags, make my getaway. St. Louis woman with all her diamond rings. Has got this man wrapped 'round her apron strings. T'wan't for powder and for store-bought hair, That gal of mine would not have gone nowhere, nowhere. I've got the St. Louis blues, just as blue as I can be. That gal, she's got a heart like a rock down in the sea, Or else she would have not gone oh so far from me. 'Cause I loved that gal like a schoolboy loves his pie. Like an old Kentucky colonel loves hisRussian Rye. Yeah, I'll love that girl until the day I die.

11.
LYRICS: You must remember this A kiss is just 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.

LYRICS: THESE FOOLISH THINGS Chorus 2 Gardenia perfume ling'ring on my pillow Wild strawb'ries only seven francs a kilo And still my heart has wings These foolish things remind me of you The smile of Garbo and the scent of roses The waiters whistling as the last bar closes The song that Crosby sings These foolish things remind me of you How strange how sweet to find you still These things are dear to me They seem to bring you near to me The scent of smould'ring leaves, the wail of steamers Two lovers on the street who walk like dreamers Oh, how the ghost of you clings! These foolish things remind me of you. THESE FOOLISH THINGS Chorus 3 First daffodils and long excited cables And flickering candle light on corner tables And still my heart has wings These foolish things remind me of you The park at evening when the bell has sounded The "Ile de France" with all the gulls around it The beauty that is Spring's These foolish things remind me of you How strange how sweet to find you still These things are dear to me They seem to bring you near to me The sigh of midnight trains in empty stations Silk stockings thrown aside dance invitations Oh, how the ghost of you clings! These foolish things remind me of you

LYRICS: I've got the world on a string Sitting on a rainbow Got the string around my finger What a world what a life I am in love I've got the song that I sing I can make the rain go Anytime I move my finger Lucky me can't you see I am in love Life is a beautiful thing As long as I hold that string I'd be a silly so-and-so If I should ever let you go I’ve got the world on a string Sitting on a rainbow Got the string around my finger What a world What a life I’m in love

Blue Moon 03:51
LYRICS: 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 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
