Thank Heaven for Little Girls

Thank heaven for little girlsfor little girls get bigger every day!
Thank heaven for little girlsthey grow up in the most delightful way!
Those little eyes so helpless and appealing
one day will flash and send you crashin' thru the ceilin'
Thank heaven for little girls
thank heaven for them all,
no matter where no matter who
for without them,
what would little boys do?
Thank heaven... thank heaven...
Thank heaven for little girls!

I’m dreaming of a White Christmas

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten
and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow.
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white. I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white.

Itsy Bitsy Yellow Polka-dot Bikini

She was afraid to come out of the locker
She was as nervous as she could be
She was afraid to come out of the locker
She was afraid that somebody would see
One, two, three, four, tell the people what she wore
It was an itsy, bitsy, teenie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini
That she wore for the first time today
An itsy, bitsy, teentie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini
So in the locker she wanted to stay
Two, three, four, stick around we'll tell you more
She was afraid to come out in the open
And so a blanket around she wore
She was afraid to come out in the open
And so she sat bundled up on the shore
Two, three, four, tell the people what she wore
It was an itsy, bitsy, teenie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini
That she wore for the first time today
An itsy, bitsy, teentie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini
So in the blanket she wanted to stay
Two, three, four, stick around we'll tell you more
Now she is afraid to come out of the water
And I wonder what she's gonna do
Now she is afraid to come out of the water
And the poor little girl's turning blue
Two, three, four, tell the people what she wore
It was an itsy, bitsy, teenie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini
That she wore for the first time today
An itsy, bitsy, teentie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini
So in the water she wanted to stay
(From the locker to the blanket)
(From the blanket to the shore)
(From the shore to the water)
Yes, there isn't any more

They can’t take that away from me

The way you wear your hat
The way you sip your tea
The memory of all thatNo, no they can’t take that away from me
The way your smile just beams
The way you sing off keyThe way you haunt my dreams
No, no they can’t take that away from me
We may never, never meet again
On the bumpy road to love
Still I’ll always, always keep the memory of
The way you hold your knife
The way we danced till three
The way you changed my life
No, no they can’t take that away from me
No, they can’t take that away from me
We may never, never meet again
On that bumpy road to love
Still I’ll always, always keep the memory of
The way you hold your knife
The way we danced till three
The way you change my life
No, no they can’t take that away from me
No, they can’t take that away from me.

Sweet Caroline

Where it began
I can’t begin to knowin’
But then I know it’s growin’ strong
Was in the springAnd spring became the summer
Who’d have believed you’d come along
Hands, touchin’ hands
Reachin’ out
Touchin’ me
Touchin’ you
Sweet caroline
Good times never seemed so goodI’ve been inclined
To believe they never would
But now I look at the night
And it don’t seem so lonely
We fill it up with only two
And when I hurt
Hurtin’ runs off my shoulders
How can I hurt when I’m with you
Warm, touchin’ warm
Reachin’ out
Touchin’ me
Touchin’ me
Sweet Caroline
Good times never seemed so good
I’ve been inclined
To believe they never would
Oh, no, no
Sweet caroline
Good times never seemed so good
I’ve been inclined
I believed they never could
Sweet caroline

Over the Rainbow

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?

Do Re Mi – The sound of Music

Doe, a deer, a female deer.
Ray, a drop of golden sun.
Me, a name I call myself.
Far, a long, long way to run.
Sew, a needle pulling thread,
La, a note to follow sew,
Tea, a drink with jam and bread!
That will bring us back to do oh-oh-oh!

Moon River

Moon River, wider than a mile,
I'm crossing you in style some day.
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker, wherever you're going,
I'm going your way.
Two drifters off to see the world. There's such a lot of world to see.
We're after the same rainbow's end-- waiting 'round the bend,
my huckleberry friend,
Moon River and me.

Whatever will be, will be
(Que serà, serà)

When I was just a little girl/boy,
I asked my mother,
"What will I be ?
Will I be pretty/handsome ?
Will I be rich ?"
Here's what she said to me :
"Que Sera, Sera
Whatever will be, will be,
The future's not ours to see,
What will be, will be."
Then I grew up and fell in love,
I asked my sweetheart,
"what lies ahead?
Will we have rainbows,
day after day?"
Here's what my sweetheart said:
"Que sera, sera,
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours to see.
Que sera, sera,
What will be, will be."
Now I have children of my own
They ask their mother:
"Will I be handsome,
will I be rich?"
I tell them tenderly
"Que Sera, Sera
Whatever will be, will be,
The future's not ours to see,
What will be, will be.
Que Sera, Sera"

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.

The Way you look tonight

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.
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 fears apart
And that laugh that wrinkles your nose,
Touches my foolish heart.
Yes you're lovely, never, ever change
Keep that breathless charm.
Won't you please arrange it?
'Cause I love you
Just the way you look tonight.
With each word your tenderness grows,
Tearing my fears apart
And that laugh that wrinkles your nose,
Touches my foolish heart.
Yes you're lovely, never, ever change
Keep that breathless charm.
Won't you please arrange it?
'Cause I love you
Just the way you look tonight.
Just the way you look tonight.
Darling
Just the way you look tonight.

It had to be you

It had to be you, it had to be you, I wandered around an' finally found
Somebody who
Could make me be true
Could make me be blue And even be glad, just to be sad, thinkin' of you,
Some others I've seen
Might never be mean
Might never be cross, or try to be boss,
But they wouldn't do
For nobody else gave me a thrill,
With all your faults,
I love you still,
It had to be you, wonderful you,
it had to be you!
Some others I've seen
Might never be mean
Might never be cross,
or try to be boss, But they wouldn't do
Nobody else gave me a thrill,
With all your faults,
I love you still,
It had to be you,
wonderful you,
it had to be you!
It just had to be you!

I found my thrill on Blueberry Hill

I found my thrill on Blueberry Hill
On Blueberry Hill
when I found you
The moon stood still on Blueberry Hill And lingered until my dreams came true
(The wind in the willow played
Love's sweet melody
But all of those vows we made
Were never to be)
Though we're apart,
you're part of me still
For you were my thrill on Blueberry Hill
(I found my thrill)
Come climb the hill with me, baby
(on Blueberry Hill)
We'll see what we shall see
(on Blueberry Hill)
I'll bring my horn with me
(when I found you)
I'll be wit' you where berries are blue
(the moon stood still)
Each afternoon we'll go
(on Blueberry Hill)
Higher than the moon we'll go
(and lingered until) Then,
to a weddin' in June we'll go (
my dreams came true)
Ba-ba-da-de-buzz-buzz va-de-n-da-day
The wind in the willow played
(do you really love me)
Love's sweet melody
(as I love you?)
But all of those vows we made
(will you still remember)
Were never to be
(when the night is through?)
Though we're apart,
you're part of me still
For you were my thrill on Blueberry Hill

Ol’ Man river

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 ja-ail
I gets weary and so sick of tryin'
I'm tired of livin',
but I'm feared of dyin'
And Ol' Man River,

How much is that dog in the window ?

How much is that doggie in the window? (arf! arf!)
The one with the waggley tail
How much is that doggie in the window?
(arf! arf!)
I do hope that doggie's for sale
I must take a trip to California
And leave my poor sweetheart alone
If he has a dog, he won't be lonesome
And the doggie will have a good home
How much is that doggie in the window?
(arf! arf!)
The one with the waggley tail
How much is that doggie in the window? (arf! arf!)
I do hope that doggie's for sale
I read in the paper there are robbers
(roof! roof!)
With flashlights that shine in the dark
My love needs a doggie to protect him
And scare them away with one bark
I don't want a bunny or a kitty
I don't want a parrot that talks
I don't want a bowl of little fishies
He can't take a goldfish for a walk
How much is that doggie in the window?
(arf! arf!)
The one with the waggley tail
How much is that doggie in the window?
(arf! arf!)
I do hope that doggie's for sale
I do hope that doggie's for sale

I Could Have Danced All Night

Bed? Bed --
I couldn't go to bed
My head's too light to try to settle down
Sleep? Sleep --
I couldn't sleep tonight
Not for all the jewels in the crown!
I could have danced all night
I could have danced all night
And still have begged for more
I could have spread my wings
And done a thousand things
I'd never done before
I'll never know what made it so exciting
When all at once my heart took flight
I only know when he began to dance with me
I could have danced, danced, d
anced..all night
Bubba: It's after three now
don't you agree now
she ought to be in bed
Lauren: I could've danced...
B: Your time is up
L: all night...

B: Please, I'm sure it's late

B: please, or as sure as
Fate you'll catch a cold

L: began to dance...
B: now settle downL: with me...
B: and go to sleep
L: I could have...
L & B: ...danced, danced, danced...all night.

I left my heart in San Fransisco

The loveliness of Paris
Seems somehow sadly gay
The glory that was Rome
Is of another day
I've been terribly alone
and forgotten in Manhattan
And I'm coming home
to my city by the bay
I left my heart in San Francisco
High on a hill, it calls to me
To be where little cable cars
Climb halfway to the stars!
And the morning fog will chill the air
My love waits there
(my love waits there)
in San Francisco
Above the blue and windy sea
When I come home to you,
San Francisco,
Your golden sun will shine for me!
I left my heart in San Francisco
High on a hill,
it calls to me
To be where little cable cars
Climb halfway to the stars!
And the morning fog will chill the air
I don't care
My love waits there in San Francisco Above the blue and windy sea
When I come
When I come home to you,
San Francisco,
Your golden sun will shine for me!
Yeah

C’est magnifique

When love comes in and takes you for a spin,
Oo la la la,
c'est magnifique.
When every night,
your loved one holds you tight,
Oo la la la, c'est magnifique.
But when one day,
your loved one drifts away,
Oo la la la,
it is so tragique.
But when once more she whispers "Je t'adore"
c'est magnifique.

New York, New York

Start spreading the news
I'm leaving today
I want to be a part of it,
New York, New York
These vagabond shoes
Are longing to stray
And make a brand new start of it
New York, New York
I want to wake up in the city that never sleeps
To find I'm king of the hill,
top of the heap
These little town blues
Are melting away
I'll make a brand new start of it
In old New York
If I can make it there
I'll make it anywhere
It's up to you,
New York, New York.
I want to wake up in the city that never sleeps

I'll make it anywhere
It's up to you,
New York, New York.

I’ve got you under my skin

I have got you under my skin
I've got you deep in the heart of me
So deep in my heart
You're nearly a part of me
I've got you under my skin
I have tried so not to give in
I have said to myself
this affair
Never gonna go somewhere
But why should I try to resist
When baby I know so well
That I've got you under my skin
I would sacrafice anything
Come what might
For the sake of holding you near
In spite of a warning voice
That comes in the night
It repeats and it shouts in my ear
Don't you know blue-eyes
You never can win
Use your mentality
Wake up to reality
But each time I do
Just the thought of you
Makes me stop before I begin
'cause I've got you under my skin
I'd sacrifice anything
Come what might
For the sake of having you near
In spite of a warning voice
That comes in the night
It repeats and it shouts in my ear
Don't you know you old fool
You never can win
Use your mentality
Wake up to reality
But each time that I do
Just the thought of you
Makes me stop before I begin 'cause I've got you under my skin
And I love you
(when you're)
under my skin

Singin' in the Rain

I'm singing in the rain
Just singing in the rain
What a glorious feeling
I'm happy again
I'm laughing at clouds
So dark up above
The sun's in my heart
And I'm ready for love
For love
Let the stormy clouds chase
Everyone from the place
Come on with the rain
I've a smile on my face
I'll walk down the lane
With a happy refrain
Singing, singing in the rain
In the rain.
La...I'm singing in the rain
Just singing in the rain
What a glorious feeling
I'm happy again
I walk down the lane
With a happy refrain
I'm singing, singing in the rain
In the rain
In the rain

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
From now on our troubles will be out of sight
Have yourself a merry little Christmas Make the yuletide gay
From now on our troubles will be far away
Once again as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more
Through the years we all will be together
If the fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now
Once again as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more
Through the years we all will be together
If the fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

Come What May

Never knew I could feel like this
Like I've never seen the sky before
Want to vanish inside your kiss
Every day I love you more and more
Listen to my heart, can you hear it sings
Telling me to give you everything
Seasons may change, winter to spring
But I love you until the end of time
[Chorus:]
Come what may
Come what may
I will love you until my dying day
Suddenly the world seems such a perfect place
Suddenly it moves with such a perfect grace
Suddenly my life doesn't seem such a waste
It all revolves around you
And there's no mountain too high
No river too wide
Sing out this song and I'll be there by your side
Storm clouds may gather
And storms may collide
But I love you until the end of time
[Chorus]
Oh, come what may, come what may
I will love you,
I will love you
Suddenly the world seems such a perfect place
[Chorus]

Some Day My Prince Will Come

Some day my prince will come
Some day we'll meet again
And away to his castle we'll go
To be happy forever I know
Some day when spring is here
We'll find our love anew
And the birds will sing
And wedding bells will ring
Some day when my dreams come true
Some day my prince will come
Some day I'll find my love
And how thrilling that moment will be
When the prince of my dreams comes to me
He'll whisper "I love you"
And steal a kiss or two
Though he's far away
I'll find my love some day
Some day when my dreams come true
Some day I'll find my love
Someone to call my own
And I'll know her the moment we meet
For my heart will start skipping a beat
Some day we'll say and do
Things we've been longing to
Though she's far away
I'll find my love some day
Some day when my dreams come true

Strangers in the night

Strangers in the night
exchanging glances
Wond’ring in the night
What were the chances we’d be sharing love
Before the night was through.
Something in your eyes was so inviting,
Something in you smile was so exciting,
Something in my heart,
Told me I must have you.
Strangers in the night, two lonely people
We were strangers in the night
Up to the moment
When we said our first hello.
Little did we know
Love was just a glance away,
A warm embracing dance away and -
Ever since that night we’ve been together.
Lovers at first sight, in love forever.
It turned out so right,
For strangers in the night.

What a wonderful world

I see trees of green........
red roses too
I see ’em bloom.....
for me and for you
And I think to myself....
what a wonderful world.
I see skies of blue.....
clouds of white
Bright blessed days....
dark sacred nights
And I think to myself .....
what a wonderful world.
The colors of a rainbow.....
so pretty ..in the sky
Are also on the faces.....
of people ..going by
I see friends shaking hands.....
sayin’.. how do you do
They’re really sayin’......
I love you.
I hear babies cry......
I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more.....
than I’ll never know
And I think to myself .....
what a wonderful world
(instrumental break)
The colors of a rainbow.....
so pretty ..in the sky
Are there on the faces.....
of people ..going by
I see friends shaking hands.....
sayin’.. how do you do
They’re really sayin’...
*spoken*
(I ....love....you).
I hear babies cry......
I watch them grow
*spoken*
(you know their gonna learn
A whole lot more than I’ll never know)
And I think to myself .....
what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself .......
what a wonderful world.

Unforgettable

Unforgettable, that’s what you are
Unforgettable though near or far
Like a song of love that clings to me
How the thought of you does things to me
Never before has someone been more
Unforgettable in every way
And forever more, that’s how you’ll stay
That’s why, darling, it’s incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am unforgettable too
Unforgettable in every way
And forever more, that’s how you’ll stay
That’s why, darling, it’s incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am unforgettable too

I get a kick out of you

My story is much too sad to be told
But practically everything leaves me totally cold
The only exception I know is the case
When I’m out on a quiet spree, fighting vainly the old ennui
Then I suddenly turn and see
Your fabulous face
Chorus:
I get no kick from champagne
Mere alcohol doesn’t thrill me at all
So tell me why should it be true
That I get a kick out of you
Some like the perfume from spain
I’m sure that if I took even one sniff
It would bore me terrifically too
But I get a kick out of you
( some like the bop-type refrain )
( I’m sure that if, I heard even one riff )
( it would bore me terrifically too )
( but I get a kick out of you )
( some they may go for cocaine )
( I’m sure that if, I took even one sniff )
( it would bore me terrifically too )
( but I get a kick out of you )
I get a kick every time I see you standing there before me
I get a kick though it’s clear to see, you obviously do not adore me
I get no kick in a plane
Flying too high with some gal in the sky
Is my idea of nothing to do
But I get a kick out of you

You make me feel so young

You make me feel so young
You make me feel like spring has sprung
Every time I see you grin
I’m such a happy individual
The moment that you speak
I want to go and play hide-and-seek
I want to go and bounce the moon
Just like a toy balloon
You and I, are just like a couple of tots
Running across the meadow
Picking up lots of forget-me-nots
You make me feel so young
You make me feel there are songs to be sung
Bells to be rung, and a wonderful fling to be flung
And even when I’m old and gray
I’m gonna feel the way I do today
’cause you make me feel so young

My prayer

When the twilight is gone and no songbirds are singing
When the twilight is gone you come into my heart
And here in my heart you will stay while I pray
My prayer is to linger with you
At the end of the day in a dream that's divine
My prayer is a rapture in bloom
With the world far away and your lips close to mine
Tonight while our hearts are aglow
Oh tell me the words that I'm longing to know
My prayer and the answer you give
May they still be the same for as long as we live
That you'll always be there at the end of my prayer

The great pretender

Oh-oh, yes, I'm the great pretender
Pretending that I'm doing well
My need is such I pretend too much
I'm lonely but no one can tell
Oh-oh, yes, I'm the great pretender
Adrift in a world of my own
I've played the game but to my real shame
You've left me to grieve all alone
Too real is this feeling of make-believe
Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal
Yes I'm the great pretender
Just laughin' and gay like a clown
I seem to be what I'm not, you see
I'm wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you're still around
Too real is this feeling of make-believe
Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal
Yes I'm the great pretender
Just laughin' and gay like a clown
I seem to be what I'm not, you see
I'm wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you're still around

Are you the one?

The question that I pose is really easy
It came to me the moment you walked by
It seem to me you looked at me so sweetly
The moment that I stared into your eyes
Are you the one to steel my heart completely?
Are you the one that I am to adore?
Are we the pair that slips away discretely?
Are you the one that I have waited for?
We can toast the moon sitting by a fire
And then walk hand in hand for others to admire
Are you the one to paint the town so brightly?
Are you the one I simply can't ignore?
Are we the pair that dance together nightly?
Are you the one that I have waited for?
We can sail the seas on an ocean liner and then drink pink champagne
Our life could be no finer
Are you the one to paint the town so brightly?
Are you the one I simply can't ignore?
Are we the pair that dance together nightly?
Are you the one that I have waited for?
Are you the one?
Are you the one?
Are you the one?
Oh are you the one?

Seasons in the sun (Terry Jacks)

Goodbye to you, my trusted friend.
We've known each other since we're nine or ten.
Together we climbed hills or trees.
Learned of love and ABC's,
skinned our hearts and skinned our knees.
Goodbye my friend, it's hard to die,
when all the birds are singing in the sky,
Now that the spring is in the air.
Pretty girls are everywhere.
Think of me and I'll be there.
We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.
But the hills that we climbed
were just seasons out of time.
Goodbye, Papa, please pray for me,
I was the black sheep of the family.
You tried to teach me right from wrong.
Too much wine and too much song,
wonder how I got along.
Goodbye, Papa, it's hard to die
when all the birds are singing in the sky,
Now that the spring is in the air.
Little children everywhere.
When you see them I'll be there.
We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.
But the wine and the song,
like the seasons, have all gone.
Goodbye, Michelle, my little one.
You gave me love and helped me find the sun.
And every time that I was down
you would always come around
and get my feet back on the ground.
Goodbye, Michelle, it's hard to die
when all the birds are singing in the sky,
Now that the spring is in the air.
With the flowers ev'rywhere.
I whish that we could both be there.
We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.
But the stars we could reach
were just starfish on the beach
