All of me
Why not take all of me
Can't you see
I'm no good without you
Tout entier
Faut me prendre tout entier
Ne vois-tu pas
Que je ne suis rien sans toi
Take my lips
I want to loose them
Take my arms
I'll never use them
Prends mes bras
Ils ne peuvent plus serrer
Prends mes lèvres
Elles ne savent plus embrasser
Your goodbye
Left me with eyes that cry
How can I go on, dear, without you
Mon désespoir
Vient d'un simple 'au revoir'
Je broie du noir
Dés que tu n'es pas là
You took the part
That once was my heart
So why not take all of me
En quelques heures
Tu as pris mon cœur
Alors par pitié prends-moi tout entier

When shadows fall
And trees whisper, "Day is ending",
My thoughts are ever wending home.
When crickets call,
My heart is forever yearning
Once more to be returning home.
When the hills conceal the setting sun,
Stars begin a-peeping, one by one.
Night covers all,
And though fortune may forsake me,
Sweet dreams will ever take me home.

I know (I know)
You belong to somebody new
But Tonight you belong to me
Although (although) we're apart
You're part of my heart
And tonight you belong to me
Je sais qu'aujourd'hui
Tu vis loin, avec lui
Mais cette nuit tu la passes avec moi
On s'est éloigné
Dans mon cœur tu es restée
Mais cette nuit tu la passes avec moi
Way down by the stream
How sweet it will seem
Once more just to dream
In the moonlight
My honey I know (I know)
With the dawn that you will be gone
But tonight you belong to me
Emportés par le courant
Si doux, nous enveloppant
Une dernière fois pour réver
Sous la lune
Mon amour, je sais qu'au petit jour
Tu seras partie pour toujours
Mais cette nuit tu la passes avec moi
Le jour ne se lévera pas

Love, oh love, oh careless love,
You've fly though my head like wine
You've wrecked the life Of many a poor girl
And you nearly spoiled this life of mine
Love, oh love, oh careless love,
In your clutches of desire
You've made me break a many true vow
Then you set my very soul on fire
Love, oh love, oh careless love,
All my happiness bereft
Cause you've filled my heart with weary old blues
Now I'm walkin' talkin' to myself
Love, oh love, oh careless love,
Trusted you now it's too late
You've made me throw my old friend down
That's why I sing this song of hate
Love, oh love, oh careless love,
Night and day I weep and moan
You brought the wrong man into this life of mine
For my sins till judgement I'll atone

My baby says she's trav'ling on the one after 909
I said move over honey I'm travelling on that line
I said move over once, move over twice
Come on baby don't be cold as ice
I said I'm trav'ling on the one after 909
I begged her not to go and I begged her on my bended knees
You're only fooling around, you're fooling around with me
I said move over once, move over twice
Come on baby don't be cold as ice
I said I'm trav'ling on the one after 909
I got my bag, run to the station
Railman says you've got the the wrong location
I got my bag, run right home
Then I find I've got the number wrong
Well I said I'm trav'ling on the one after 909
I said move over honey I'm travelling on that line
I said move over once, move over twice
Come on baby don't be cold as ice
I said I'm trav'ling on the one after 909
[refrain]
Well I said I'm trav'ling on the one after 909
I said move over honey I'm travelling on that line
I said move over once, move over twice
Come on baby don't be cold as ice
I said we're trav'ling on the one after 90
I said we're trav'ling on the one after 90
I said we're trav'ling on the one after 909

Dans tes grands yeux noirs Je me suis perdu
J’attends un regard Le coeur suspendu
Je t’aime tellement fort Toi qui me fais peur
Est ce un mauvais sort Ou la mauvaise heure
Et autour de nous chantent les tziganes
Tout le monde s’en fout S’enivre au champagne
Dans tes beaux yeux noirs Je sombre, mon amour
Et mon désespoir A leur chant est sourd
Je perds la raison A chercher tes bras
Tremblant de passion Viens, embrasse moi
De tes grands yeux noirs, L’étrange lumière
Nimbera le soir De tous les mystères
C’est toi que je veux Je sais que j’ai tort
Je suis malheureux De t’aimer si fort
Tes yeux noirs de feu Je ne peux rien y faire
M’entraînent malgré eux Dans ce doux enfer
Je suis fou de toi Ma belle aux yeux noirs
Même si je ne sais pas Où va notre histoire
C’est pour ma passion tes yeux noirs que j'ai
Fait cette chanson Otchi Tchernye

Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue Ridge Mountains
Shenandoah River Life is old there
Older than the trees
Younger than the mountains
Growin' like a breeze
Country Roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain momma
Take me home, country roads
All my memories gathered 'round her
Miner's lady, stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine
Teardrops in my eye
[refrain]
I hear her voice
In the mornin' hour she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away
And drivin' down the road I get a feelin'
That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday

What a difference a day made,
twenty four little hours
Brought the sun and the flowers
where there use to be rain
Un jour de différence
Dans toute une existence
Ca n'a pas d'importance
Semble-t-il et pourtant
My yesterday was blue dear
Today I'm a part of you dear
My lonely nights are through dear
Since you said you were mine
Les journées semblent grises
Vingt-quatre suffisent
Pour qu'on la trouve exquise
Que faut-il simplement ?
Oh, what a difference a day made
There's a rainbow before me
Skies above can't be stormy
since that moment of bliss
That thrilling kiss
Il faut bien peu de choses
Le parfum d'une rose
Un sourire qui se pose
Sur vous tout doucement
It's heaven when you
find romance on your menu
What a difference a day made
And the difference is you
J'en fais par vous l'experience
Et c'est pourquoi je pense que
Un jour de différence
C'est quelquefois beaucoup.

I can't seem to face up to the facts
I'm tense and nervous and I Can't relax
I can't sleep 'cause my bed's on fire
Don't touch me I'm a real live wire
Psycho Killer Qu'est Que C'est
Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far better
Run run run run run run run away
You start a conversation you can't even finish it.
You're talkin' a lot, but you're not sayin' anything.
When I have nothing to say, my lips are sealed.
Say something once, why say it again?

Be sure it's true when you say
I love you
It's a sin to tell a lie
Millions of hearts
have been broken
Just because these words
were spoken
I love you, yes, I do,
I love you
If you break my heart
I'll die
So be sure that it's true
when you say, 'I love you'
It's a sin to tell a lie

Our day will come (Our day will come)
And we'll have everything
We'll share the joy
Falling in love can bring
No one can tell me
That I'm too young to know
I love you so
And you love me
Our day will come (Our day will come)
If we just wait a while
No tears for us
Think love and wear a smile
Our dreams are magic because
We'll always stay
In love this way
Our day will come

You always hurt the one you love,
The one you shouldn't hurt at all.
You always take the sweetest rose,
And crush it till the petals fall.
You always break the kindest heart,
With a hasty word you can't recall.
So, if I broke your heart last night,
It's because I love you most of all.

Underneath the mango tree, me honey and me, come watch for the moon,
Underneath the mango tree, me honey and me, make bool'aloop soon.
Underneath the moonlit sky, me honey and I, come sit hand in hand,
Underneath the moonlit sky, me honey and I, come make fairy land.
Mango, banana and tangerine, sugar, anaki, and cocoa bean,
When we get married we make 'dem grow, and nine little child in a row.
Underneath the mango tree, me honey and me, come watch for the moon,
Underneath the mango tree, me honey and me, we plan marry soon.
Underneath the mango tree, underneath the mango tree.
Underneath the Mango tree, underneath the mango tree.

Is there anyone finer
In the state of Carolina?
If there is and you know her
Show her to me
Dinah
Got those Dixie eyes blazin'
How I love to sit and gazin'
To the eyes of Dinah Lee
Every night why do I
Shake with fright ?
'Cause my Dinah might
Change her mind about me
Oh, Dinah
Should you wander to China
I would hop an ocean liner

Comes a rainstorm, put your rubbers on your feet
Comes a snowstorm, you can get a little heat
Comes love, nothing can be done
Comes a fire, then you know just what to do
Blow a tire, you can buy another shoe
Comes love, nothing can be done
Don't try hiding 'Cause there isn't any use
You'll start sliding When your heart turns on the juice
Comes a headache, you can lose it in a day
Comes a toothache, see your dentist right away
Comes love, nothing can be done
Comes a heatwave, you can hurry to the shore
Comes a summons, you can hide behind the door
Comes love, nothing can be done
Comes the measles, you can quarantine a room
Comes a mousey, you can chase it with a broom
Comes love, nothing can be done
That's all, brother If you've ever been in love
That's all, brother You know what I'm speaking of
Comes a nightmare, you can always stay awake
Comes depression, you may get another break
Comes love, nothing can be done

Little painted lady with your lovely clothes
Where are you bound for may I ask?
What your diamonds cost you everybody knows
All the world can see behind your mask
Old doll and in black rags
Tomorrow may turn to sad rags
They call her glad rag doll
Admired,desired
by lovers who soon grow tired
Poor little glad rag doll
You just a pretty toy
they like to play with
You're not the kind they choose
to grow old and grey with
Don't make this the end here
It's never too late to mend you
Poor little glad rag doll

Besame, besame mucho
Como si fuera esta
noche la última vez
Besame mucho
Que tengo miedo perderte,
perderte otra vez
Besame, besame mucho
Embrasse-moi mon amour
que je puisse oublier,
Puisqu’on se quitte
Tous mes regrets d’un bonheur
fait de tant de baisers...
Quiero tenerte muy cerca,
mirarme en tus ojos,
verte junto a mí
Piensa que tal vez,
Mañana yo ya estaré,
Lejos, muy lejos de ti
Oui, je sais bien
qu’un beau jour on revient
Mais j’hésite, ce jour est si loin...
N’y croyons pas,
Disons-nous, toi et moi,
Qu’on se voit pour la dernière fois...
Besame, besame mucho
Como si fuera esta
noche la última vez
Besame mucho
Que tengo miedo perderte,
Perderte después
Besame, besame mucho
Embrasse-moi, mon amour,
Que je puisse oublier,
Oublier le temps en fuite
Et ma chanson n’aura plus
qu’un seul mot : aimer...

Have you seen the well-to-do
up and down Park Avenue
On that famous thoroughfare
With their noses in the air
High hats and narrow collars
White spats and fifteen dollars
Spending every dime
For a wonderful time
If you're blue
And you don't know where to go to
Why don't you go where fashion sits,
Puttin' on the Ritz
Different types who wear a daycoat,
pants with stripes and cut away coat,
perfect fits,
Puttin' on the ritz.
Dressed up like a million dollar trouper
Trying hard to look like Gary Cooper (super duper)
Come let's mix where Rockefellers
walk with sticks or umbrellas
In their mitts
Puttin' on the Ritz

I love a ukulele
I love to strum it gaily
I love to hum while I strum, strum, strum, strum
I know the song's Hawaiian
Starts my sweet sweetie sighin'
We softly harmonize as we hum, ummmmmm
I know what I'm doin'
I never go wrong
At home or canoeing
I'm strummin' along
Some sweet Hawaiian ditty
Gee, don't they write 'em pretty
I love a ukulele song

Up a lazy river by the old mill run
The lazy, lazy river in the noon day sun
Linger in the shade of a kind old tree
Throw away your troubles
Dream a dream with me
Up a lazy river where the robin's song
Awakes the bright new mornin'
Where we can move along
Blue skies up above, everyone's in love
Up a lazy river, how happy you could be
Up a lazy river-er with me

Oh je voudrais tant que tu te souviennes
Cette chanson était la tienne
C'était ta préférée je crois
Qu'elle est de Prévert et Kosma
Et chaque fois les feuilles mortes
Te rappellent à mon souvenir
Jour après jour Les amours mortes
N'en finissent pas de mourir
Avec d'autres bien sûr je m'abandonne
Mais leur chanson est monotone
Et peu à peu je m' indiffère
A cela il n'est rien à faire
Car chaque fois les feuilles mortes
Te rappellent à mon souvenir
Jour après jour Les amours mortes
N'en finissent pas de mourir
Peut-on jamais savoir par où commence
Et quand finit l'indifférence
Passe l'automne vienne l'hiver
Et que la chanson de Prévert
Cette chanson Les Feuilles Mortes
S'efface de mon souvenir
Et ce jour là Mes amours mortes
En auront fini de mourir

The Devil started dancin
He was quite entrancin'
hen he did the 'Jangle: his own way
His bones were rattlin loudly,
As he began to shuffle proudly.
Thats the way that Satan takes a holiday
The music wasn t good,
But it was plenty spooky.
That s the way he likes it night and day
the gentleman prefers to listen
To aggravatin rhythm
Thats the way Satan takes a holiday.
Watch out,
He's comin' out,
And then you'll shout
unless you're good, knock wood.
He's really rather goofy
tryin' to be spooky,
But he has to do it day by day
His job is not allurin'
never-the-less quite endurin'
Maybe that's why Satan takes a holiday

I'm walking, walking on air
For I've left all my blue days behind me
I've learned how to care (yes, yes!)
And there's love, really love on my mind
I'm the world's most happy creature,
Tell me, what can worry me?
I'm crazy 'bout my baby,
Baby's crazy 'bout me!
Mr. Cupid was the teacher,
And the reason we agree,
I'm crazy 'bout my baby,
Baby's crazy 'bout me!
Parson, get that book
Hold it in your hand,
Keep a steady look-out
You can understand
It's an A-one combination,
A perfect he and she,
I'm crazy 'bout my baby,
Baby's crazy 'bout me!

You won't admit you love me
And so how am i ever
to know you always tell me
Perhaps perhaps perhaps
Tu jures que tu m´aimes
Bien plus que moi je t´aime
Pourtant je dis quand même
Qui sait, qui sait, qui sait
A million times i've asked you
And then I ask you over
Again you only answer
Perhaps perhaps perhaps
Tu dis que sur la terre
C´est moi que tu préfères
Que nul ne peut te plaire
Qui sait, qui sait, qui sait
If you can't make your mind up
We'll never get started
And i don't wanna wind up
Being parted broken-hearted
Un soir dans une danse
Un autre s´avance
Déjà son cœur frivole
Dans ta robe tourne et vole
So if you really love me
Say yes but if you don't dear
Confess and please don't tell me
Perhaps perhaps perhaps
Et ce baiser qu'il ose
Voler sur ta joue rose
Tu dis c´est peu de choses
Qui sait, qui sait, qui sait
Tu dis que dans la danse
Les tendres confidences
N´ont guère d´importance
Qui sait, qui sait, qui sait
La preuve est qu'au passage
S'il frôle ton corsage
Lequel est le moins sage
Qui sait, qui sait, qui sait
Pour peu que l´amourette
Te tourne la tête
Vas-tu m´être infidèle
Pour de telles bagatelles
Mais si jamais tu oses
Moi-même je suppose
Ferais la même chose
Qui sait, qui sait, qui sait

'Cause my hair is curly
Just because My teeth are pearly
Just because I always wear a smile
Like to dress up In the latest style
'Cause I'm glad I'm living
I take these troubles all with a smile
Just because my color's shady
That's the difference maybe
Why they call me…
Shine, sway your blues'ies
Why don't you shine ? Start with your shoes'ies
Shine each place up Make it look like new
Shine your face up Wear a smile or two
Why don't you shine
Your these and thoseies ?
You'll find everything gonna turn out right fine
Folks will shine up do-ya'
Everybody's gonna howdy doody do-ya'
You'll make the whole world shine

You are nobody until somebody loves you
You're nobody till somebody cares
Now you may be king, you may possess the world and it's gold
Gold will never buy you happiness, When you're growing old
You know the world is the same You'll never change it
Just as sure as the stars shine above
Well you are nobody until somebody comes and loves you
So find yourself somebody to love
I said the world it's still is the same You'll never change it
As sure as the stars shine above
Good God baby You ain't nobody until somebody loves you
So you better find yourself somebody to love

The taxman's taken all my dough
And left me in my stately home
Lazing on a sunny afternoon
I can't even sail my yacht
He's taken everything I've got
All I got's this sunny afternoon
Save me, save me, save me from this squeeze
I got a big fat momma trying to break me
And I love to live so pleasantly
Live this life of luxury
Lazin' on a sunny afternoon
In the summertime
My girlfriend's gone off with my car
And gone back to her ma and pa
Tellin' tales of drunkenness and cruelty
While I'm sittin' here
Sippin' at my ice-cool beer
Lazin on a sunny afternoon
Help me, me help me, help me sail away
Well, give me two good reasons why I oughta stay
And I love to live so pleasantly
Live this life of luxury
Lazin' on a sunny afternoon
In summertime

I don't want to set the world on fire
I just want to start
A flame in your heart
In my heart I have but one desire
And that one is you
No other will do
I've lost all ambition for worldly acclaim
I just want to be the one you love
And with your admission that you feel the same
I'll have reached the goal I'm dreaming of
Believe me!
I don't want to set the world on fire
I just want to start
A flame in your heart

I wandered today to the hill, Maggie
To watch the scene below
The creek and the rusty old mill, Maggie
Where we sat in the long, long ago.
The green grove is gone from the hill, Maggie
Where first the daisies sprung
The old rusty mill is still, Maggie
Since you and I were young.
A city so silent and lone, Maggie
Where the young and the gay and the best
In polished white mansion of stone, Maggie
Have each found a place of rest
Is built where the birds used to play, Maggie
And join in the songs that were sung
For we sang just as gay as they, Maggie
When you and I were young.
They say I am feeble with age, Maggie
My steps are less sprightly than then
My face is a well written page, Maggie
But time alone was the pen.
They say we are aged and grey, Maggie
As spray by the white breakers flung
But to me you're as fair as you were, Maggie
When you and I were young.
And now we are aged and grey, Maggie
The trials of life nearly done
Let us sing of the days that are gone, Maggie
When you and I were young.
First Voice :
I wandered today through the hill, Maggie
To watch the scene below
The creek and the creaking old mill, Maggie
Where we used to stroll long ago.
The green grove is gone from the hill, Maggie
Where once the daisies sprung
But I love you the same as ago, Maggie
When you and I were young Maggie blues
Second voice :
You simply take a favorite
Then you flavor it
with just a note or two of blue harmony
Tell the orchestra to play staccato
And then you jazz a little obligato
Now that Maggie tune is a raggy tune
Pay no attention to the music that they play
But just ride your blues away
On the spot, start to sway, gettin' hot now
Hear the broken time is just spoken time
All around the sea.Harmony charmony,
Every lovin' note Is a lovin boat
Just full of music that you can't refuse
Now you know the way Tell the band to play
And when you listen it You christen it and sing
I got those
When You and I Were Young Maggie Blues

I’ve got a mission, it’s just a simple thing
I’ve one ambition,
to have the right to bring you
Your coffee in the morning
Two kisses in the night
It’s my desire, to do as I am told
To have what you require,
and never have it cold, dear
Your coffee in the morning
And kisses in the night
The wedding bells sound out dirge
The wedding ties may spoil our fun
Without the helping hand of clergy
I’m afraid it can’t be done
It isn’t formal but with a wedding ring
It’s natural and normal
To give you everything, dear
From coffee in the morning
To kisses in the night

It's not the islands fair that are calling to me
It's not the balmy air nor the tropical sea
It's a little brown gal in a little grass skirt
In a little grass shack in Hawaii
It isn't Waikiki or Kamehameha's pali
Not the beach boys free with their hoomalimali
It's a little brown gal in a little grass skirt
In a little grass shack in Hawaii
Through that island wonderland
She's broken all the kanes' hearts
It's not hard to understand
For that wahine is a gal of parts
I'll be leaving soon but the thrill I enjoy
Is not the island moon nor the fish and the poi
It's just a little brown gal in a little grass skirt
In a little grass shack in Hawaii

No moon at all, what a night
Even lightnin' bugs have dimmed their lights
Stars have disappeared from sight
And there's no moon at all
Don't make a sound, it's so dark
Even Fido is afraid to bark
What a perfect chance to park
And there's no moon at all
Should we want atmosphere
for inspiration, dear
One kiss will make it clear
That tonight is right and bright
Moonlight might interfere
No moon at all way up above
This is nothin' like they told us of
Just to think we fell in love
And there's no moon at all

I'm just a poor wayfarin' stranger,
While travelin' through this world below.
Yet there's no sickness, no toil, nor danger,
In that bright land to which I go.
I'm goin' there to see my Father.
And all my loved ones who've gone on.
I'm only goin' over Jordan.
I'm only goin' over home.
I know dark clouds will gather 'round me,
I know my way is hard and steep.
But beauteous fields arise before me,
Where God's redeemed, their vigils keep.
I'm goin' there to see my Mother.
She said she'd meet me when I come.
So, I'm only goin' over Jordan.
I'm only goin' over home.

Caught up in your wheelin' dealin' you've got no time left for simple feelin'
I thought I knew you but I didn't know you at all
Trapped inside your world of worry you miss so much when you always hurry
Well slow down baby you'll only get hurt if you fall
Well you told me one time that you'd be somebody
That you weren't workin' just to survive
But you're workin' so hard that you don't even know you're alive
Workin' so hard to be somebody special not working just to survive
Well you're special to me babe but what I don't see babe is
Where you go once you arrive
Where we go once we arrive
Damn all evil that takes possession until your pipe dreams become obsessions
They scare me baby and we should have nothing to fear
I'm no child but I can't help wonder it seems like some kind of spell you're under
You're listnin' baby but somehow you don't really hear
Well you told me one time that you'd be somebody
That you weren't workin' just to survive
But you're workin' so hard that you don't even know you're alive
Workin' so hard to be somebody special not working just to survive
Well you're special to me babe but what I don't see babe is
Where you go once you arrive
Where we go once we arrive

Where the road is dark and the seed is sowed
Where the gun is cocked and the bullet's cold
Where the miles are marked in the blood and gold
I'll meet you further on up the road
Got on my dead man's suit and my smilin' skull ring
My lucky graveyard boots and song to sing
I got a song to sing, keep me out of the cold
And I'll meet you further on up the road.
Further on up the road Further on up the road
Where the way is dark and the night is cold
One sunny mornin' we'll rise I know
And I'll meet you further on up the road.
Now I been out in the desert, just doin' my time
Searchin' through the dust, lookin' for a sign
If there's a light up ahead well brother I don't know
But I got this fever burnin' in my soul
Further on up the road Further on up the road
Further on up the road Further on up the road
One sunny mornin' we'll rise I know
And I'll meet you further on up the road
One sunny mornin' we'll rise I know
And I'll meet you further on up the road.

Rainy days don’t worry me
There’s a rainbow that I can see
And it’s waiting for me
Down forget-me-not lane
Fortune never comes that way
I’ll keep singing a song each day
Keeping troubles away
From forget-me-not lane
It’s just a heaven they made
And if you’re a stranger there
You’ll find a table well laid
And you’re welcome to a chair
There’s no high-brow etiquette
Just plain people and once you’ve met
They will never forget
Down forget-me-not lane

We make mistakes when we worry
all over nothing at all
We make mistakes that bring heartaches
and the teardrops fall like raindrops
We make mistakes and feel sorry
when we've made someone blue
But I made the greatest mistake of all
When I said goodbye to you

Down in the poolroom
Some of the gang were
Talking of gals they knew
Women are all the same, said Joe
Then one dizzy bird
Said, pal, ain't you heard
The story of True Blue Lou
Listen and get an earful, Joe
She was A dame in love with a guy
She stuck to him But didn't know why
Everyone blamed her Still they all named her
True Blue Lou
He gave her nothing She gave him all
But when he had His back to the wall
Who fought to save him Smiled and forgave him
True Blue Lou
He got a break and went Away to get a new start
But poor kid,
she never got a break Except the one way
Down deep in her heart
Maybe somewhere In heaven up above
There's a reward For that kind of love
Angels won't blame her They too will name her
True Blue Lou

Le jour où ma Citron
Emboutit ta Citron
Je t´ai offert, c´était courtois
De te conduire chez toi
J´ai dit non tout d´abord
Mais il pleuvait si fort
Qu´étourdiment je t´ai dit oui
Et nous sommes partis
Dans mon auto Tous deux, cahin-cahot
Sans prononcer un mot
Tout contre toi, sans bien savoir pourquoi
J´éprouvais je n´sais quoi
Quand, par hasard Tu surpris mon regard
J´ai rougi sous mon fard
Puis j´ai souri Ton sourire m´a pris
Nous nous étions compris
Lâchant tout à coup ma direction
Ta main prit une autre direction
Tu as failli, c´eût été du joli,
Rentrer dans un taillis
Ah oui, vraiment! Il faut être prudent
Quand on est au volant
Mais, dis-je, où allons-nous?
Partout mais pas chez vous
Allons-y donc, fis-je narquois
C´est sans doute pourquoi
Défiant les écriteaux : "Attention aux marmots"
Tu as suivi A cent à l´heure
Le chemin du bonheur
Dans mon auto Tous deux, cahin-cahot
Nous ne soufflions mot
Evidemment Lâchement mais habilement
Tu m´embrassais tout l´temps
Sans doute alors Interprétai-je à tort
Tes mots plus vite encore
Dans un baiser Afin de me griser
Tu as accéléré
Gaiement, sans Me soucier des virages
J´ai mis toute l´avance à l´allumage
J´ai eu le trac
Mais tu as eu le tact
De couper le contact
Ah oui, vraiment! Il faut être prudent
Quand on est au volant
Ta la la la Attention, chéri, voyons!
Ti la la la Oh! Le tournant!
Ta la la la Ralentis, je t´en prie!
Ti la la la
C´est ainsi que, faute d´attention,
Trop d´amours sont en réparation
Sachez toujours,
Amants légers de cœur,
Filer parfait amour
A tout instant
Il faut être prudent
Quand on est au volant

Oh you railway station!
Oh you Pullman Train!
There's my reservation
For my destination,
Far beyond the western plains
To see my home in Pasadena.
Home where grass is greener
Where honeybees
Hum melodies
And orange trees scent the breeze.
I'm gonna be a home-sweet-homer
And there I'll settle down
Beneath the palms
In someone's arms
In Pasadena town.

I'll take the long way home tonight
Please don't wait up I'll be alright
Going about my usual day, I had no idea
Cupid and friends had other plans for me, now i see
And so, before I call it a day
I'm making stops along the way
Well I'll be laughing with the moon in sea of delight
and thanking every little bitty star in sight
When I, take the long way home tonight
I'll take the long way home tonight
Please don't wait up I'll be alright
Going about my usual day, I had no idea
Cupid and friends had other plans for me, now i see
And so, first, before this day is through
Well I have got some things I've gotta do
Well I'll be laughing with the moon in sea of delight
and thanking every little bitty star in sight
When I, take the long way home tonight
Well I'll be winking to the wise owl who always knew
And babbling with the brook about my love for you
When I, take the long way home tonight
When I, take the long way home tonight

No one to talk with, all by myself
No one to walk with, I'm happy on the shelf
Ain't misbehavin', I'm savin' my love for you
I know for certain the one I love
I'm through with flirtin', you that I'm thinkin' of
Ain't misbehavin', I'm savin' my love for you
Like Jack Horner in the corner
Don't go nowhere what fo I care
Your kisses are worth waitin' for, believe me
I don't stay out late, don't care to go
I'm home about eight, just me and my radio
Ain't misbehavin', Savin' all my love for you

I'm the lonesomest gal in town
Everybody has thrown me down
I got no angel child to ever call me,"Dear"
Got no honey man for me to cuddle near
But I'm learnin' to roll my eyes
And someday you may be surprised
When I steal someone's lovin' man And kiss him with a smack
I'll hug him and I'll squeeze him But I'll never give him back
'Cos I'm lonesome, so very lonesome
I'm the lonesomest gal in this here town
If you read in the papers some day
That some poor girl has passed away
Don't shed a tear if you should hear
That gal was me and if you see
My picture in the paper with a smile on my face
I was broken hearted that smile was out of place
If you wanna save a gal from her grave
Find me a man if you can
I'm the lonesomest gal in town
Everybody is throwin' me down
I got no angel child to ever call me,"Dear"
Got no honey man for me to cuddle near
But I'm learnin', I'm gonna roll my eyes
And someday you're gonna be surprised
When I steal someone's lovin' man And kiss him with a smack
I'll hug him and I'll squeeze him But I'll never give him back
'Cause I'm lonesome, so very lonesome
I'm the lonesomest gal in this or any other town

Sun is shinin' in the sky There ain't a cloud in sight
It's stopped rainin' ev'rybody's in a play And don't you know It's a beautiful new day hey,hey
Runnin' down the avenue See how the sun shines brightly in the city
On the streets where once was pity Mister blue sky is living here today hey, hey
Refrain (2x)
Mister blue sky please tell us why
You had to hide away for so long Where did we go wrong?
(solo)
Hey you with the pretty face Welcome to the human race
A celebration, mister blue sky's up there waitin' And today is the day we've waited for
Refrain (1x)
Hey there mister blue
We're so pleased to be with you
Look around see what you do
Ev'rybody smiles at you
(pont)
Mister blue, you did it right But soon comes mister night creepin' over
Now his hand is on your shoulder Never mind I'll remember you this
I'll remember you this way
(Refrain)
Hey there mister blue We're so pleased to be with you
Look around see what you do Ev'rybody smiles at you (fin = C – G - D)

A country dance was being held in a garden
I felt a bump and heard an, "Oh, beg your pardon"
Suddenly, I saw polka dots and moonbeams
All around a pug-nosed dream
The music started and was I the perplexed one
I held my breath and said, "May I have the next one?"
In my frightened arms, polka dots and moonbeams
Sparkled on a pug-nosed dream
There were questions in the eyes of other dancers
As we floated over the floor
There were questions but my heart knew all the answers
And perhaps a few things more
Now in a cottage built of lilacs and laughter
I know the meaning of the words, "Ever after"
And I'll always see polka dots and moonbeams
When I kiss the pug-nosed dream

Said it's only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it would'nt be make believe
If you believed in me
Yes it's only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it would'nt be make believe
If you believed in me
Without your love
It's a hunky tonk parade
Without your love
It's a melody played In a penny arcade
It's a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it would'nt be make believe
If you believed in me

Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it's breaking.
When there are clouds in the sky
you'll get by.
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through
For you.
Light up your face with gladness,
Hide every trace of sadness.
Although a tear may be ever so near
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying.
You'll find that life is still worthwhileIf you just smile.
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying.
You'll find that life is still worthwhileIf you just smile.

Love love love love What did you do to me?
The things I never missed Are things I can't resist.
Love love love love Isn't it plain to see?
I just had a change of heart What can it be?
She's got eyes of blue. I never cared for eyes of blue
But she's got eyes of blue, And that's my weakness now.
She's got dimpled cheeks. I never cared for dimpled cheeks
But she's got dimpled cheeks And that's my weakness now.
Oh my, oh me
I should be good, I would be good but gee.
She likes to bill and coo. I never liked to bill and coo,
But she likes to bill and coo. That's my weakness now.
She likes rainy days. I never cared for rainy days
But she likes rainy days, And that's my weakness now.
She likes vestibules. I never stood in a vestibule
But she likes vestibules, And that's my weakness now.
Oh gee, poor me,
I can hear the clock striking one, two, three.
She likes long good nights. I never had a long good night
But she likes long good nights, And that's my weakness now.
She's got a Chevrolet. I never liked Chevrolet
But she's got a Chevrolet, And that's my weakness now.
She likes to drive in a certain way. I never drove in a certain way
But she likes to drive in a certain way And that's my weakness now.
Oh my, oh me,
I should be good, I would be good, but gee.
She likes to park and play. I never liked to park and play
But I guess we'd better park and play. That's my weakness now.

Mother Mother Mother, I met a man today
Mother Mother Mother, he’s perfect in everyway
With a natural sofistication and a 4 year college education
Mother I know you’ll love him so
Cause he’s a sentimental gentleman from Georgia, Georgia
Gentle to the ladies all the time (so gentle to the ladies)
And when it comes to lovin’ he’s a real professor (a PhD, yes sir)
Just a Masson Dixon Valentine (Valentine, valentine)
Oh see those Georgia peaches hanging around him now
Cause what this fellow teaches nobody else knows how
That sentimental gentleman from Georfia, Georgia,
Gentle to the ladies all the time (Mother mother advise me what to do)
As your mother I feel it is my moral obligation to forestall a very likely situation
in which you, my daughter, will eventually be broken hearted,
because of a friendship which never shoud’ve started
So take the advice of your mother my dear child and forget about this man,
this so called Masson Dixon Valentine Go find yourself someone more gentlemanly
And less sentimental to the ladies all the time
Oh Thank you mother dear , I‘m so grateful to you
But I forgot to mention : I just got married to
That sentimental Gentleman from Georgia, Georgia
He’s so gentle to the ladies, all the time (he’s wonderful)
That sentimental gentleman from Georgia

Listen, Big Boy
Now that I've got you made
Goodness but I'm afraid
Something's gonna happen to you
Listen Big Boy
You've got me booked and how !
I would die if I should lose you now.
Button up your overcoat When the wind is free
Take good care of yourself You belong to me
Eat an apple every day Get to bed by three
Take good care of yourself You belong to me
Be careful crossing streets, ooh, ooh Cut out sweets, ooh, ooh
Lay off meat, ooh, ooh You'll get a pain and ruin your tum-tum
Wear your flannel underwear When you climb a tree
Take good care of yourself You belong to me
Listen Girl friend
You've knocked me off my feet
I think you're very sweet
Making such a fuss about me
Listen Girl friend
Now that I'm fond of you
I'm afraid I'm gonna worry too

Is there anyone around who cannot see
It’s the well known runaround you’re giving me
I suppose you’ll tell me I’m all wrong
It’s a bitter pill to take, coming from you
Though I’ve made a big mistake, what can I do?
I don’t know what makes me string along
I don't want you But I hate to lose you
You got me in between the devil and the deep blue sea
I forgive you Cos I can't forget you
You've got me in between the devil and the deep blue sea
I want to cross you off my list
But when you come knocking at my door
Fate seems to give my heart a twist
And I come running back for more
I should hate you But I guess I love you
You've got me in between the devil and the deep blue sea
