At Last

At Last

At last
My love has come along
My lonely days over
And life is like a song

Ooh at last
The skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped in clover
The night I looked at you

I found a dream
That I could speak to
A dream that I could call my own
I found a thrill
To press my cheek to
A thrill that I’ve never known

You smile
You smile
And then the spell was cast
And here we are in heaven
For you are mine at last

Until You Come Back to Me

Though you don't call anymore
I sit and wait in vain
I guess I'll rap on your door
Tap on your windowpane
I want to tell you
The changes I've been going through
Missing you, listen you

Till you come back to me
That's what I'm gonna do
Till you come back to me
That's what I'm gonna do

Why did you have to decide
You had to set me free
I'm gonna swallow my pride
I'm gonna beg you please see me
I'm gonna walk by myself
Just to prove that my love is true
Just for you baby

Till you come back to me
That's what I'm gonna do
Till you come back to me
That's what I'm gonna do

Oh living for you my dear
Is like living in a world of constant fear
Hear my plea, I've got to make you see
That our love is dying

Although your phone you ignore
Somehow I must explain
I'm gonna rap on your door
Tap on your windowpane
I'm gonna camp on your step
Just till I get through to you
I've got to change your view

Till you come back to me
That's what I'm gonna do
Till you come back to me
That's what I'm gonna do
I’ve got to change your view
Till you come back to me
That's what I'm gonna do
I’ve got to change your view
Till you come back to me
That's what I'm gonna do
Missing you
Till you come back to me
That's what I'm gonna do
Ooh
Till you come back to me
That's what I'm gonna do

Walk On By

If you see me walking down the street
And I start to cry each time we meet
Walk on by, walk on by

Make believe
That you don't see the tears
Just let me grieve
In private cause each time I see you
I break down and cry
Walk on by

I just can't get over losing you
And so if I seem broken and blue
Walk on by, walk on by

Foolish pride
Is all that I have left
So let me hide
The tears and the sadness you gave me
When you said goodbye
Walk on by
Walk on by

I just can't get over losing you
And so if I seem broken and blue
Walk on by, walk on by
Foolish pride
Is all that I have left
So let me hide
The tears and the sadness you gave me
When you said goodbye
Walk on by
Don’t you know you better walk on by
Said walk, walk, walk,
Don’t you know you better walk on by
Said walk, walk, walk
Don’t you know you better walk on by
Said walk, walk, walk,
Don’t you know you better walk on by
Said walk, walk, walk
Don’t you know you better walk on by
Don’t you know you better walk on by
Don’t you know you better walk on by
Don’t you know you better walk on by

My Baby Just Cares For Me

My baby don't care for clothes
My baby don't care for shows

My baby just cares for me

Makin' Whoopee

Everytime I hear that march for Leningrad
I am always on the outside looking in
Maybe that is why I see the funny side
When I see somebody’s brother take a ride
Weddings make a lot of people sad
But if you’re not the one, they’re not so bad

Another bride, another June
Another sunny honeymoon
Another season, another reason
For making whoopee

A lot of shoes, a lot of rice
The groom is nervous,
Who can blame him
He answers twice
It’s really killing
But he's so willing to make whoopee

Picture a little love nest
(I got you)
Down where the roses cling
(It’s very romantic)
Picture the same sweet love nest
Think what a year can bring
(I’m with you)
He's washing dishes and baby clothes
(He should)
He's so ambitious, not really he even sews
(2003 babe)
But don't forget folks,
That’s what you get folks, for making whoopee

Another year
(What)
Or maybe less
What’s this I hear
Can’t you guess
(No)
She feels neglected
And he’s suspected
(That’s right)
Of making whoopee

She sits alone
Most every night
He doesn’t phone
Nor even write
(I forgot the number)
He says he’s busy
But she says “Is he?”
He’s making whoopee

He doesn’t make much money
Yeah, 500,000 per
Some judge who thinks he’s funny
Says you pay six to her
He says now judge, what if I fail
Judge says bud, right into jail
Whoops
You better keep her
I think it’s cheaper
Than making whoopee
Yeah don’t forget folks,
That’s what you get folks,
For making whoopee

La Vie En Rose

Hold me close and hold me fast
The magic spell you cast
This is la vie en rose
When you kiss me heaven sighs
And though I close my eyes
I see la vie en rose
When you press me to your heart
I'm in a world apart
A world where roses bloom
And when you speak, angels sing from above
Everyday words seem to turn into love songs
Give your heart and soul to me
And life will always be la vie en rose

Hold me close and hold me fast
The magic spell you cast
This is la vie en rose
When you kiss me heaven sighs
And though I close my eyes
I see la vie en rose
When you press me to your heart
I'm in a world apart
A world where roses bloom
And when you speak, angels sing from above
Everyday words seem to turn into love songs
Give your heart and soul to me
And life will always be la vie en rose

Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood

Baby do you understand me now
Sometimes I feel a little mad
Don't you know that no one alive can always be an angel?
When things goes wrong I seem bad

Well I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

Baby sometimes I'm so carefree
With a joy that's hard to hide
Oh and sometimes it seems that all I have is worry
And then you bound to see my other side

Oh but I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

If I seem edgy
I want you to know
That I never mean to take it out on you
Life has its problems
And I have my share
And that's one thing I never wanna do

Baby
Don't you know I'm, I’m only human
I have thoughts like any other one?
Oh when sometimes I find myself alone regretting
Some little thing
Some little simple thing I've done

But you know I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood
But I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood
Please don't let me be misunderstood
Please don’t let me be misunderstood

Unchained Melody

Oh my love, my darling
I hunger for your touch
A long lonely time
And time goes by, so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?
I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me

Lonely rivers flow to the sea, to the sea
To the open arms of the sea
Lonely rivers sigh, wait for me, wait for me
I'll be coming home, wait for me

Oh my love, my darling
I hunger for your touch
Are you still mine?
I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me
Oh my love
Oh my love
My love

You've Really Got a Hold On Me

I don't like you
But I love you
Seems like I'm always thinking of you
Oh you treat me badly
I love you madly
You've really got a hold on me
You've really got a hold on me

I don't want you,
But I need you
Don't wanna kiss you
But I need to
Oh you do me wrong now
My love is strong now

You've really got a hold on me
You've really got a hold on me
I love you
All that I want you to do
Is just hold me, hold me, hold me

Don't wanna leave here
Don't wanna stay here
Don't wanna spend another day here
Oh, I just don't fit now
And I just can quit now

You've really got a hold on me
You've really got a hold on me, baby
I love you and all that I want you to do
Is just hold me, please hold me,
Squeeze hold me

If You Go Away

If you go away
On this summer day
Then you might as well
Take the sun away
All the birds that flew
In the summer sky
When our love was new
And our hearts were high
When the day was young
And the night was long
And the moon stood still
For the night bird song
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away
If you go away
But if you stay
I'll make you a day
Like no day has been
Or will be again
We'll sail the sun
We'll ride on the rain
Talk to the trees
And worship the wind
And if you go
I'll understand
Leave me just enough love
To hold in my hand
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away
If you go away, if you go away
Like I know you will
You must tell the world to stop turning
Till you return to me
If you ever do,
Oh what good is love without loving you?
I can tell you now, as you turn to go
I'll be dying slow
Till the next hello
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away,
If you go away
But if you stay
I'll make you a night
Like no night has been
Or will be again
I'll sail on you smile
I'll ride on your touch
Talk to your eyes
That I love so much
But if you go
I'll understand
Leave me just enough love
To hold in my hand
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away, if you go away
If you go away,
Like I know you must
There’ll be nothing left in the world to trust
Just an empty room, full of empty space
Like that empty look I see on your face
I'd have been the shadow of your shadow
If I thought it might have kept me by your side
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away
If you go away

Hymn to Love

If the sky should fall into the sea
And the stars fade all around me
For the times that we have known
I will sing a hymn to love

We have lived and dreamed we two alone
In a world that's seemed our very own
With it's memory ever grateful
Just for you I'll sing my hymn to love

I remember each embrace
The smile that lights your face
And my heart begins to sing
Your arms and hands secure
Your eyes that said be sure
And my heart begins to sing

If one day we had to say goodbye
And our love would fade away and die
In my heart you will remain
I will sing a hymn to love

Those who love will live eternally
In the blue we'll roll this harmony
With my voice raised high to heaven
Just for you, I'll sing a hymn to love
Just for you I’ll sing a hymn to love

 

On the Sunny Side of the Street

Grab your coat and take your hat
Leave your worries on the doorstep
Life can be so sweet
On the sunny side of the street

Do you hear the pitter-pat
That tune that’s in my step
Life can be complete
On the sunny side of the street

I used to walk in the shade with my blues on parade
Now I'm not afraid
This rover has crossed over

If I never made another cent
I'd still be rich as Rockefeller
Gold dust at my feet
On the sunny side of the street
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Hey hey hey
On the sunny side
On the sunny side of the street
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

So grab your coat and take your hat
Leave your worries on the doorstep
Life can be complete
On the sunny side of the street

Do you hear the pitter-pat
That tune that’s in my step
Oh life can be so sweet
On the sunny side of the street

I used to walk in the shade with my blues on parade
Now I'm not afraid
This rover has crossed over
If I never made another cent
I'll still be rich as Rockefeller
There will be gold dust at my feet
On the sunny side of the street
Oh gold dust at my feet
On the sunny side of the street
On the sunny side
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
On the sunny side of the street
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
On the sunny side
Sunny side of the street
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
On the sunny side
