Golden Oldies

NOEL'S COLLECTION
OF
GOLDEN OLDIES

A BOOK CONTAINING POPULAR SONGS
FOR BOTH YOUNG AND OLD
When I was a schoolboy and later on in life some of the best times we had were at a dinner when a lady got up and sat at the piano and called all of us to sing. Those days there was no TV to watch so everybody got around the piano and sang lustily. As the days passed I noticed that all had an inclination to sing but the common plea was that they had forgotten the words. After seeing that this wondelful occasion, when we all got together to lend our voices to a boisterous melody, was fading away I decided to collect songs and to publish a concise book of songs for everyone. I only hope that this will bring back the singing days.

I thank all my good friends who have lent me their support, by suggesting songs, or proof reading etc.

DAISY DAISY

Daisy Daisy give me your answer do,
I'm half crazy all for the love of you,
It won't be a stylish marriage,
For I can't afford a carriage.
But you'll look sweet upon the seat,
On a Bicycle meant for two.

Michael, Michael here is my answer true,
I can't cycle it makes me black and blue.
If you can't afford a carriage,
Call off the blinking marriage.
For I'll be damned, if I'll be crammed,
On a bicycle meant for two.

'NEATH THE SHADE OF AN OLD APPLE TREE

'Neath the shade of an old apple tree,
When love in your eyes I could see;
When the voice that I heard,
Like the song of a bird.
Seemed to whisper sweet music to me.

I could hear the dull buzz of a bee,
In the blossoms as you sing to me.
With a heart that is true,
I'll be waiting for you,
'Neath the shade of an old apple tree.

AFTER THE BALL IS OVER

After the ball is over, after the break of morn,
After the dancers are leaving,
After the stars are gone.
Many a heart is aching,
If you could read them all.
Many the hopes that have vanished,
After the ball.

We were so happy waltzing around the floor,
As shadows dipping I'll love you more.
Then came the last dance, you said good bye
Though I'm smiling I wanted to cry.

0 MY DARLING CLEMENTINE

CHORUS
0 my darling, 0 my darling,
0 my darling, . Clementine,
Thou art lost and gone forever,
Dreadful sorrow Clementine.

In a cavern, in a canyon,
excavating for a mine,
Dwelt a miner, forty - niner,
and his daughter Clementine.
(Chorus)

Light she was a, like a fairy
And her shoes were number nine,
Herring boxes without topses
Sandals were for Clementine.
(Chorus)

Saw her lips above the water,
Blowing bubbles soft and fine.
But alas, I'm no swimmer,
So I lost my Clementine.
(Chorus)

Into the churchyard, Near the cannon,
where the mistles doth entwine.
There grew roses and other flowers,
Fertilized by my Clementine.
(Chorus)

Drove she ducklings to the water,
Every morning just at nine.
Hit her foot against a splinter,
Fell into the foaming brine.
(Chorus)

In my dreams I still but name her,
Robed in garments of the time.
Though in life I used to hand her,
Now she died I'll dream in time.
(Chorus)

How I missed her, how I missed her,
How I missed my Clementine,
But I kissed her little sister,
And forgot my Clementine.
(Chorus)

5.COME BACK LISA

CHORUS
Come back Lisa, come back girl,
Wipe the tears'from me eyes.
Come back Lisa, come back girl,
Wipe the tears from me eyes.

Every time I'm away from Lisa,
Water comes to me eyes.
(Chorus)

Remember when love was new,
Water comes to me eyes.
(Chorus)

There was one but now there's two,
Water comes to me eyes.
(Chorus)

When the evening starts to fall,
Water comes to me eyes.
(Chorus)

I can hear my Lisa call,
Water comes to me eyes.
(Chorus)

Standing there in the market place,
Water comes to my eyes.
(Chorus)

Soon I'll feel her warm embrace,
Water comes to my eyes.
(Chorus)

6. MY BONNIE LIES OVER THE OCEAN

My Bonnie lies over the ocean,
My Bonnie lies over the sea,
My Bonnie lies over the ocean,
So bring back my Bonnie to me, to me.

CHORUS
Bring back, Oh bring back,
Oh bring back my Bonnie to me, to me.
Bring back, Oh bring back,
Oh bring back my Bonnie to me.

My breakfast lies over the ocean,
My luncheon lies over the sea,
My stomach is in heluva commotion,
So bring qack my dinner to me.
(Chorus)

Last night as I lay on my pillow,
Last night as I lay on my bed,
Last night as I lay on my pillow,
I dreamt that my Bonnie was dead.
(Chorus)

0 blow ye winds over the ocean,
0 blow ye winds over the sea,
0 blow ye winds over the ocean,
And bring back my Bonnie to me.
(Chorus)

7. OH MY PAPA

0 my papa to us you were so wonderful.
0 my papa to us you were so good.
0 my papa so funny, 0 so adorable.
Deep in our hearts we miss you, 0 we do!

You were the one,
Who stood by us when the day is done,
And dried our tears,
When life's hard knocks were hard to bear.
0 my papa so many memories come to mind.
Of all the things by which you gave us joy.

Now that you've gone,
And life's glitter has been shorn,
We hope one day,
To be with you forever.
0 my papa, 0 my papa, 0 my papa.

8. MARY ANNE

All day all night Mary Anne,
Down by the seaside sifting sand.
Even little children love Mary Anne,
Down by the seaside sifting sand.

CHORUS
Mary Anne, Mary Anne, why don't you marry me.
We can have a bamboo hut and brandy in the tea,
Leave your fat old mama home, she'll never say yes.
If your mama don't know, she can guess.

When she walks along the shore,
People pause to greet,
White birds fly around her,
Little fish run to her feet.
To her heart there is love.
But I'm the only mortal man,
Who's allowed to kiss my Mary Anne.
(Chorus)

When we marry, we will have,
A time you never say I will be so happy,
I will kiss my mother-in-law.
Children by the dozen,
in and out the bamboo hut,
One for every palm tree and coconut.
(Chorus)

9. WHEN IRSH EYES ARE SMILING

When Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure it's like a morn in spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter,
You can hear the angels sing.

When Irish eyes are happy,
All the world seems bright and gay.
And when Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure they'll steal your heart away.

10. QUE SERA SERA

When I was just a little girl I asked my mother,
What will I be,
Will I be pretty will I be rich,
Here's what she said to me.

CHORUS
Que Sera, Sera whatever will be, will be,
The future is not ours to see Que Sera, Sera,
What will be will be.

When I was just a child in school
I asked my teacher, what should I try.
Should I paint pictures, should I sing songs?
This was her wise reply
(Chorus)

When I grew up and fell in love,
I asked my sweetheart what lies ahead,
Will there be roses day after day,
Here's what my sweetheart said.
(Chorus)

Now I have children of my own,
They ask me mother, what will I be,
Will I be handsome, will I be rich?
I tell them tenderly.

11. SWEET VIOLETS

CHORUS
Sweet violets sweeter th~ the roses,
Covered all over from head to foot,
Covered all over with sweet violets.

There once was a farmer who took a young miss
In the back of a barn where he gave her a lecture,
On horses and chickens and eggs,
And told her that she had such beautiful manners
That suited a girl of her charms,
A girl that he wanted to take in his washing
and ironing,
And then if she did, they could get married,
And raise a lot of-
(Chorus)

The girl told the farmer that he better stop,
And she called her father and he called a taxi,
And got there before very long.
Cause some one was doing his little girl,
Right for a change, and so that is why he said.
" If you marry her son, you're better off single.
'Cause it has always been my belief,
Marriage will bring a man nothing but... ...
(Chorus)

The farmer decided that he'd wed anyway,
And started in planning his wedding suit,
Which he purchased for only one buck,
But then he found out that he was just out of money,
And so he got left in the lurch. (chorous)

12. MAY THE GOOD LORD BLESS AND KEEP YOU

May the good Lord bless and keep you,
Whether near or far away.
May you find that long awaited golden day today.
May your troubles all be small ones,
And your fortunes ten times ten.
May the good lord bless and keep you,
Till we meet again.

May you walk with sunlight shining,
And a bluebird in every tree.
May there be a silver lining in every cloud you see.
Fill your dreams with sweet tomorrow,
N ever mind what might have been.
May the good Lord bless and keep you,
Till we meet again.

13. I'M FOREVER BLOWING BUBBLES

I'm forever blowing bubbles Pretty bubbles in the air,
They fly so high nearly reach the sky

Then like my dreams they fade and die.
Fortunes always hiding
I've looked everywhere
I'm forever blowing bubbles
Pretty bubbles in the air.

14. HAVE YOU EVER BEEN LONELY

Have yon ever been lonely,
Have you ever been blue,
Have you ever loved someone,
Just as I love you.

Can't you see I'm sorry,
For each mistake I've made,
Can't you see I've changed dear,
Can't you see I've paid.

Be a little forgiving,
Take me back to your heart,
How can I go on living,
Now that we're apart.

If you know what I've been through,
Then you'd know why I ask you.
Have you ever been lonely,
Have you ever been true.

15. LET ME CALL YOU SWEETHEART

Let me call you sweetheart, I'm in love with you.
Let me hear you whisper,
That you love me true.

Keep the love light glowing,
In your eyes so blue.
Let me call you sweetheart,
I'm in love with you.

16. DANNY BOY

Oh Danny Boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling,
From glen to glen, and on the mountain side,
The summer's gone and all the roses fading,
It's you, it's you, must go and I must part.

Oh come ye back, when summers in the meadows,
Or when the valleys hushed and white with snow,
Yes I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow,
Oh Danny Boy, Oh Danny Boy, I love you so.

But when Ye come and all the flowers are dying,
If I am dead, as dead as well may be
Ye'll come and sayan Ave there for me.

And I shall hear, tho' soft you tred above me,
And all my grave will warmer, sweeter be
For you will bend and tell me that you love me
And I shall sleep in peace till you come to me.

17. THERE IS A TAVERN IN THE TOWN

There is a tavern in the town, in the town,
And there my true love sits him down, sits him down,
And drinks his wine 'mid laughter free,
And never never thinks of me.

CHORUS
Fare - thee - well for I must leave thee,
Do not let the parting grieve thee,
And remember that the best'of friends
Must part, must part.
Adieu, adieu, kind friends, adieu,
I can no longer stay with you, stay with you.
I'll hang my harp on the weeping willow tree,
And may the world go well with thee.

He left me for a damsel dark, damsel dark,
Each Friday night they used to spark, used to spark.
And now my love once true to me,
Takes that dark damsel on his knee.
(Chorus)

Oh! Dig my grave both wide and deep, wide and deep.
Put tombstones at my head and feet, head and feet.
And on my breast carve a turtle dove
To signify that I died of love.
(Chorus)

18. BLUE SKIES

Blue skies smiling at me,
Nothing but blue skies do I see.
Bluebirds singing a song,
Nothing but bluebirds, all night long.

I never saw the sun, shining so bright,
Never saw things going so right,
Noticing the days hurrying by,
When you're in love how they fly.
Blue days all of them gone.
Nothing but blue skies, from now on.

19. MOONLIGHT BAY

We were sailing along on moonlight bay.
We could hear the voices singing,
Thy seem to say.
You have stolen my heart, don't go away,
As we sang loves old sweet song on a moonlightbay.

20.VIVA LA COMPAGENE

Let every good fellow now join in the song
Viva la Compagne.
Success to each other and pass it along
Viva la Compagne.

CHORUS
Viva la,Viva la. Viva L'amour,
Viva la, Viva la, Viva L' amour.
Viva L'amour, Viva L'amour,
Viva la Compagne.

A friend to the left and a friend to the right,
Viva la Compagne.
(Chorus)

In love and good fellowship let us unite.
Viva la Compagne.
(Chorus)

Let every young fellow now drink to his wife.
Viva la Compagne.

And drink to the health of this glorious class.
Viva la Campagne.
(Chorus)

21. MY HAPPINESS

Evening shadows make me blue,
When each weary day is thro'
How I long to be with you,
My happiness.

Every day I reminence,
Dreaming of your tender kiss,
Always thinking how I miss,
My happiness.

A million years it seems,
Have gone by since we shared our dreams,
But I'll hold you again,
There'll be no new memories then.

Whether skies are grey or blue,
Any place on earth will do.
How I long to be with you,
My happiness.

22. WHISPERING HOPE

Soft as the voice of an angel,
Breathing a lesson unheard.
Hope with a gentle persuasion,
Whi-spers a comforting word.

Wait till the darkness is over,
Wait till the tempest is done,
Hope for the sunshine tomorrow,
After the shower is gone.

CHORUS.
Whispering hope,
Oh how welcome thy voice.
Making my heart,
In its sorrow rejoice.

If in the dusk of the twilight
Dim be the region afar.
Will not the deepening darkness
Brighten the glimmering star.
Then when the night is upon us,
Why should the heart slink away
When the dark midnight is over,
Watch for the breaking of day.
(Chorus)

23. LOVELY BUNCH OF COCONUTS

I've got a lovely bunch of Coconuts,
See them hanging in a row.
Big ones, small ones some as big as your head,
Give them a twist, a flick of the wrist,
That's what the showman said.
I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts,
Every ball you throw will make me rich;

There stands my wife the idol of my life.
Singing roll or bowl a ball a penny a pitch.
Singing roll or bowl a ball a penny a pitch.
Singing roll or bowl a ball a penny a pitch.
Roll or bowl a ball, Roll or bowl a ball.
Singing roll or bowl a ball a penny a pitch.

24. APPLE BLOSSOM TIME

I'll be with you in Apple Blossom Time,
I'll be with you to change your love to mine,
One day in May I'll come to say.
Happy is the bride that the sun shines on, today
What a wonderful wedding there will be,
What a wonderful day for you and me,
Church bells will chime,
You will be mine,
In Apple Blossom Time.

25. BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BROWN EYES

Beautiful, beautiful brown eyes,
Beautiful beautiful brown eyes,
Beautiful beautiful brown eyes
I'll never see blue eyes again
Willie my darling I love you
I love you with all my heart
Tomorrow we might have been married
But rambling has kept us apart,
Seven long years I have been married

Wish I were single again
A woman never knows of her trouble
Until she has married a man
Down to the bar room he struggled
And fell down by the door
The very last words he uttered
That I'll never see blue eyes no more.

26. FOREVER AND FOREVER

Forever and ever, my heart will be true,
Sweetheart forever, I'll wait for you,
We both made a promise that we'd never part,
Let's seal it with a kiss
Forever my sweetheart.

Let bygones be bygones forever,
We'll fall in love once again.
So let's tell the world of our new love divine
Forever and ever, you'll be mine

27. YOU'LL NEVER KNOW

You'll never know just how much I love you
You'll never know just how much I care,
And if I tried, I still couldn't hide,
My love for you.
You ought to know, for haven't I told you so,
A million times or more,
You went away and my heart went with you,
I speak your name, in every prayer
If there is some other way to prove that I love you,
I swear I don't know how,
You'll never know, if you don't know now.

28. MOON RIVER

Moon river wider than a mile,
I'm crossing you in style someday
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 rainbows end,
Waitin' round the bend,
My Huckleberry friend,
Moon river and me.

29. DOWN BY THE RIVER SIDE

I met my bright eyed doll,
Down by the river side.
Down by the river side.
Down by the rive - l' side.
I met my little bright eyed doll,
Down by the river side.
Down by the rive - l' side.
I asked her for a little kiss,
Down by the river side.
Down by the river side.
Down by the river side.

I asked her for a little kiss,
Down by the river side.
Down by the river side.
She said "Have patience little man,
I'm sure you'll understand.
I hardly know your name,"
I said "If I could have my way
I'm sure that some sweet day,
Your name and mine will be the sa -me"

I'll wed my little Brown eyed doll,
Down by the river side.
Down by the river side
Down by the rive - r side.
I'll wed my little brown eyed doll,
Down by the river side.
Down by the rive - r side.

30. YOURS

Yours till the stars have no glory,
Yours till the birds fail to sing,
Yours till the end oflife's story,
This pledge to you dear I bring,
Yours in the grey of December,
Here, or on far distant shores,
I never loved anyone the way I loved you,
How could I, when I was born to be just yours.

31. IT'S A LONG WAY TO TIPPERARY

It's a long way to Tipperary,
It's a long way to go.
It's a long way to Tipperary,
To the sweetest gal I know.
Good bye Piccadilly,
Farewell Leicester square.
It's a long long way to Tipperary.
But my heart lies there.

32. IRENE GOODNIGHT, GOODNIGHT IRENE

CHORUS
Irene good night Irene,
Irene goodnight, good night Irene Goodnight
Irene I'll see you in my dreams.

Last Saturday night I got married,
Me and my wife settled down,
Now me and my wife have parted,
I'm gonna take a stroll down town. (Chorus)

Sometime I live in the country,
Sometimes I live in the town
Sometimes I have a great notion
To jump in the river and drown. (Chorus)

So stop your rambling, stop your gambling
Stop staying out late at night.
Go home to your wife and family,
Sit down by the fireside bright. (Chorus)

33. PACK UP YOUR TROUBLES

IN AN OLD KIT BAG
Pack up your troubles in an old kit bag,
And Smile, Smile, Smile.
While you have a Lucifer to light your fag.
Smile boys, that's the style.
What's the use of worrying,
It never was worthwhile.
So pack up your troubles in an old kit bag.
And smile, smile, smile.

34. SILVER THREADS AMONG THE GOLD

Darling I am growing old,
Silver Threads among the gold
Shine upon my brow today,
Life is fading fast away.
But my darling you will be, will be,
Always young and fair to me
Yes my darling you will be,
Always young and fair to me.

When your hair is silver white
And your cheeks no longer bright,
With the roses in May
I will kiss your lips and say,
0 my darling mine alone,
You have never older grown,
Yes my darling mine alone.
You have never older grown.

Love can never more grow old,
Locks may loose their brown and gold,
Cheeks may fade and hollow grow.
But the hearts that love will know,
N ever, never winters frost and chill,
Summer warmth is in them still,
Love is always young and fair.
What to us is silver fair.

Faded cheeks or steps grow slow,
To the hearts that beat below,
Since I kissed you mine alone,
You have never older grown.
Since I kissed you mine alone,
You have never older grown.

35. BOMBAY MERI HAl

Come from England, come from Scotland,

If you're looking for a pleasant holiday.
Come to Bombay, come to Bombay, Bombai meri hai.

36. ETERNALLY

I'll be loving you eternally,
With a love that's true eternally,
From the start within my heart
It seems I've always known,
The sun would shine when you're mine
And mine alone.

I'll be loving you eternally.
There'll be no one new, my dear for me,
Though the sky should fall,
Remember I shall always be,
Forever true and loving you eternally.

37. ISLAND IN THE SUN CHORUS

Oh! Island in the sun
Gifted to me by my father's hand.
Alll11y days I will sing in praise
Of you farest waters and your shining sands.

This is my island in the sun,
Where my people have toiled since time begun.
I may sail on many a sea
Her shores will always be home to me. (Chorus)

As morning breaks the heaven on high,
I lift my heavy load to the sky.
Sun comes down with a burning glow,
Mingles my sweat with the earth below. (Chorus)

38.YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE

You are my sunshine my only sunshine,
You make me happy when skies are grey.
You never know dear how much I love you,
Please don't take my sunshine away.
The other night I was sleeping,
I dreamt I held you in my arms,
But when I awoke dear I was mistaken,
So I hung my head and cried.

39. YOU WILL NEVER GROW OLD

You will never grow old,
While there's love in your heart.
Time may silver your golden hair,
As you dream in your old rockin'chair.
So keep my love in your heart,
Remember the love tales we told.
For with my love in your heart.
My darling, you will never grow old.
Don't be fretful or regretful,
That you'll grow old much too soon.
With love dear, you'll be lovelier,
You'll stay like a rosebud in June.

40. ROSES ARE RED

A long time ago on graduation day,
You handed me your book I signed this way.

CHORUS
Roses are red my love violets are blue,
Sugar is sweet my love, but not as sweet as you.

We dated through high school, and when the big day
came,
I wrote into your book, next to my name. (Chorus)

Is that your little girl, she looks so much like you,
Some day some boy will write, in her book too.
(Chorus)

Then I went away, and you found someone new
I read your letter dear, and I wrote back to you.(Chorus)

41. MARIA ELENA

Maria Elena you're are the answer to a prayer.
Maria Elena can't you see how much I care;
To me your voice is like the echo of a sigh,
I And when you're near my heart can't speak
above a sigh

Maria Elena say that we will never part;
Maria Elena take me to your heart;
A love like mine is great enough for two,
To share this love is really all I ask of you.

42. RAMONA

Ramona I hear the mission bells above;
Ramona they are singing out our song of love.
I press you, caress you,
And bless the day you taught me to care.
To always remember,
The rambling rose you wear in your hair.
Ramona, when day is done you'll hear my call.
Ramona, we'll meet by the waterfall,
I dread the dawn when I'll awake to find you gone,
Ramona, I need you my own.

43. THIS LAND IS MY LAND

This land is my land, this land is your land.
From California to New York Island,
From Gulf Stream Forests, to the Gulf Stream Water.
This land was made for you and me.

And I was walking on that ribbon on the highway,
I saw a bamber down in the skyway,
I saw below me that golden valley.
This land was made for you and me.

I roamed and rambled,
And followed my footsteps
To the shifting sands of the burning deserts,
And all around me the birds were singing.
This land was made for you and me.

The sun was shining and I was strolling,
And the wheat was waving,
The dust stopped rolling,
And the brook was listening,
And the voice was calling.
This land was made for you and for me.

44. YOU BELONG TO ME

See the pyramids along the Nile,
I Watch the sunrise on a tropic isle,
Just remember darling all the while.
You belong to me.

See the market place in old Algiers,
Send me photographs and souvenirs,
Just remember when a dream appears.
You belong to me.

I'll be so alone without you,
Maybe you'll be lonesome too and blue.
Fly the ocean in a silver plane,
See the jungle when it's wet with rain,
Just remember till you're wet again.
You belong to me.

45. SO DEEP IS THE NIGHT

So deep is the night,
No moon tonight, no friendly stars,
To guide me with its light,
Be still, my heart,
Silent lest my love should be returning,
From the world apart.

So deep is the night. 0 lonely night,
On broken wings my heart has taken flight,
And left a dream,
In my dream our lips are blending,
Will my dream be never ending?
Will your memory haunt me till I die?
Alone am I, deep into the night,
Waiting for the light,
I wonder why? Deep is the night.

46. LEMON TREE

When I was just a little boy, My father said to me,
"Come here and take a lesson from the lovely Lemon tree"
Don't put your faith in love, my boy, My father said to me
I fear that you'll find that love is like the Lemon tree.

CHORUS
Lemon tree very pretty and the Lemon flower is sweet,
But the fruit of the poor Lemon is impossible to eat.
Lemon tree very pretty and the Lemon flower is sweet,
But the fruit of the Lemon is impossible to eat.

Beneath that Lemon tree one day my love and I did lie,
A girl so sweet that when she smiled the sun rose in the
sky,
We passed the summer lost in love beneath the Lemon
tree,
The music of her laughter hid my father's voice from me.
(Chorus)

One day she left without a word,
She took away the sun.
And in the dark she left behind,
I knew what she had done. (Chorus)

She left me for another it's a common tale but true,
A sadder man but wiser now, I sing these words to you.
(Chorus)

47. MONA LISA

Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa men have named you,
You are so like the Lady with the mystic smile,
Is it only, 'cause you're lonely.
They have blamed you.
For that Mona Lisa strangeness in your smile,
Do you smile to tempt a lover, Mona Lisa,
Or is this the way you hide a broken heart,
Many dreams have been brought to your doorstep,
They just lie there and they die there,
Are you warm, are you real Mona Lisa,
Or just a cold and lonely, lovely work of art.

48.0H! SUSANNA

I came from Alabama with my banjo on my knee,
I'm off to Louisiana, my true love so to see,
It rained all night the day I left,
The Sun so hot I froze to death,
Susanna, don't you cry.

CHORUS
Oh! Susanna. Oh! Don't you cry for me,
I've come from Alabama, with my banjo on my knee.

I had a dream the other night,when ev'rything was still,
I thought I saw Susanna, a'comin' down the hill,
The buckwheat cake was in her mouth,
A tear was in her eye,
Says I, "I'm coming from the South,
Susanna don't you cry. (Chorus)

49. GET ME TO THE CHURCH ON TIME

I'm getting married in the morning,
Ding dong the bells are going to chime;
Pull out the stopper, let's have a whopper,
But get me to the church on time.

I gotta be there in the morning,
Spruced up and looking in my prime.
Girls come and kiss me, show how they miss me,
But get me to the church on time.

If I'm dancing roll out the floor;
If I'm whistling, whoo me out of the door.
For I'm going to marry in the morning,
Ding dong the bells are going to chime.
Kick up a rumpus, but don't lose the compass,
For God's sake, get me to the church.
Get me to the church on time.

I'm getting married in the morning,
Ding dong the bells are going to chime
. Drug me and jail me, stamp me and mail me,
But get me to the church on time.
If I'm flying then shoot me down.
If I'm wooing then get me out of town.
For I'm getting married in the morning,
Ding dong the bells are going to chime.
Feather and tear me, call out the army,
But get me to the church, get me to the church
For God's sake get me to the church on time.

50. BYE BYE BLACKBIRD

Pack up your cares and woe, here I go singing low,
Bye Bye Blackbird.
Where somebody waits for me,
Sugar is sweet and so is she.
Bye Bye Blackbird.

No one ever loves or understands me,
Oh what heartaches in store, they all hand me,
Put the bed and turn the lights low,
For tonight say goodbye.
Blackbird bye bye.

51. LIKE STRANGERS

Like strangers that's what we are.
Darling how can lovers fall apart so far;
Like strangers how can it be,
Only days ago we love so tenderly,

I love you truly I do,
And I hope deep in your heart you'll love me too,
Let's forget that we've been angry,
And be lovers as before,
And swear not to be like strangers anymore.

52. HI LILY HI LILY, HI LILY,HI LO

A song of love is a sad song.
Hi Lily, hi Lily, hi lo,
A song of love is a song of woe,
Don't ask me how I know,
A song of love is a sad song
For I have loved and it is so,
I sit at the window and watch the rain,
Hi Lily, hi Lily, hi 10,
Tomorrow I'll probably love again.
Hi Lily, hi Lily, hi lo.

53 BORN FREE

Born free, as free as the wind blows,
As free as the grass grows,
Born free to follow your heart.
Live free when beauty surrounds you,
The world will surround you.

Stay free where no walls divide you,
You're free as the rolling tide
So there's no need to hide.
Born free and life is worth living,
Only worth living, cause you're born free.

54. CARLESS HANDS

I let my heart fall into careless hands,
Careless hands that broke my heart in two,
You held my dreams,
Like worthless grains of sand,
Careless hands don't care, if dreams come true,
You brought me joy and dear I love you so,
But all the sunshine didn't make the roses grow,
If you don't change some day you'll know,
The sorrows of careless hands,
That can't hold on to love.

Hello Dolly, well hello Dolly,

One of your old favourite songs from way backwhen,

56. PEARLY SHELLS

CHORUS
Pearly shells from the ocean,
Shining in the sun, covering the shore.
When I see them, my heart tells me that I love you.

And I've got more left over for each star,
That twinkles in the blue. (Chorus)

There's a Yellow Rose of Texas,
I'm going there to see,
No other fellow knows her, not as half as well as me,
She cried so when I left her,
Nearly broke my heart,
And if we ever meet again,
We never more shall part.

She is the sweetest rose of colour, a fellow ever knew ,
Her eyes are bright as diamonds,
They sparkle like the dew,
You may talk about your dearest maids,
And sing of Rosy Lee,
But the Yellow Rose of Texas,
Beats the belles of Tennessee

Beneath the stars my ten guitars will playa song for you
And if you're with the one you love and this is
what you do. (Chorus)

Give me lands lots ofland and the starry skies above,
Don't fence me in.
Let me ride through the wide open spaces that I love,
Don't fence me in.
Let me be by myself in the evening breeze,
Listen to the murmur of the cotton wood trees.
Turn me out forever but I ask you please,
Don't fence me in.
Just turn me loose, let me straddle my own saddle,
Underneath the western skies.
On my cayuse let me wander over yonder,
Till I see the mountains rise.
I want to rise to the ridge, where the west commences,
And gaze at the moon till I lose my senses,
Can't look at hobbles and I cant stand fences, Don't
fence me in.

63. DOWN IN THE VALLEY

Down in the valley, valley so low,
Late in the evening hear the wind blow.

know i love you, dear know i love you.
Angels in heaven know i love you.

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,
(Two, three, four, tell the people what she wore,)
It was an itsy bitsY teeny weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini,
That she wore for the first time today.
An itsy bitsy teeny weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini,
So in the locker she wanted to stay.

She was afraid to come out in the open,
And so a blanket around her 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.)
Now she's afraid to come out of the water,
And I wonder what she's gonna do,
Now she's afraid to come out of the water,
And the poor little girl is turning blue.
(Two, three, four, tell the people what she wore.)

65. FEMALE WRESTLER

And she had bulging muscles, which quite

"If I catch you fooling around,
I'll break your ruddy neck".

CHORUS
Oh yo, yo what shall I do,
How shall I save my skin,
I manied a Female Wrestler,
And look at the mess I'm in, Oh yo, yo, Oh yo, yo.

She dressed up as Dara Singh,
And we wrestled through the hall,
We wrestled through the tango,
We wrestled through the waltz

But she fainted in th"e twist. (Chorus)

71. AUTUMN LEAVES

The falling leaves drift by the window;
The Autumn leaves of red and gold.
I see your lips the summer kisses,
The sunburned hands I used to hold,
Since you went away the days grow long,
And soon I'll hear an old winter's song.
But I missed you most of all my darling,
When Autumn leaves start to fall

72. THE WEDDING

You by my side that's how I see us,
I close my eyes and I can see us.
We're on our way to say "I DO".
My secret dreams have all come true,

Your folks and mine are happy and smiling,
And I can hear sweet voices singing;
Ave Maria, Ave Maria, Ave Maria.

Ohl my love, my love can it really be
That some day, you'll walk down the aisle with me,
Let it be, let it be, that I'm the one for you.
I'll be yours, I'll be yours now and forever,

This is the hour this is the moment.
And I can hear sweet voices singing;
Ave Maria, Ave Maria, Ave Maria.

73. NOW IS THE HOUR

Soon you'll be sailing far across the sea,
While you're away, Oh! Please remember me.

Here across the sea.

Some day I'll sail across the sea for you.

Tomorrow just to wait and see,

And Jimmy will go to sleep,
In his own room again,
There'll be blue birds over,
The white cliffs of Dover,
Tomorrow just you wait and see.

75. CONGRATULATIONS

CHORUS
Congratulations and celebrations,
When I tell everyone,
That you're the one in love with me.
Congratulations and jubilations,
I want the world to know,
I'm as happy as can be.
Who would believe that,
I could be happy and contented,
I used to think that happiness hadn't been invented,
But that was in the bad old days
Before I met you, And when I let you
Walk into my heart. (Chorus)

I was afraid maybe you baby,
Thought you were above me,
When I was only fooling myself,
To think you'd love me,
But then tonight you said,
You could't live without me,
And round about me, you wanted to stay. (Chorus)

"Son I have something to say"
And what he told me I'll never forget,
Until my dyin' day.

He said, "Son you are a bachelor boy,
And that's the way to stay",
Son, you'll be a bachelor boy, until your dyin' day."
When I was sixteen I fell in love,
With a girl as sweet as can be.
But I remembered just in time,
What my daddy said to me. (Chorus)

As time goes by,
I will probably meet a girl and fall in love,
Then I'll get married and have a wife and child,
And they'll be my Turtle Doves. (Chorus)

But until then I'll be a bachelor boy,
And that's the way I'll stay.
Happy to be a bachelor boy until my dyin' day.
(Chorus)

Now the hacienda is dark the town is sleeping,
Now the time has come to part the time for weeping.

CHORUS
Via condios my darling, Via condios my love.
Wherever you may be I'll be beside you;
Although you are many million dreams away,
Each night I'll say a prayer,
A prayer to guide you,
To hasten every lonely hour,
Of every lonely day. (Chorus)

Now the village mission bells are softly ringing,
If you listen with your heart,
You'll hear them singing. (Chorus)
Now the dawn is breaking through a grey tomorrow,
But the memories we share are. (Chorus)

78. SOMEWHERE MY LOVE

Somewhere my love there will be songs to sing,
All through the snow covers the hope of spring.
Somewhere a hill blossoms in green and gold,
And there are dreams all that your heart can hold.
Someday we'll meet again my love,
Someday whenever the spring breaks through,
You'll come to me out of the long ago,
Warm as the wind, soft as the kiss of snow.
Till then my sweet think of me, now and then.
God speed my love, till you're mine again.

79. LOVE IS A MANY SPLENDORED THING

Love is a many splendored thing.
It's the April Rose that only grows in the
early spring.
Love is nature's way of giving a reason to be living"
The golden crown that makes a man a king.
Once on a high and windy hill,
In the morning mist two lovers kissed,
And the world stood still.
Then your fingers touched my silent heart,
And taught it how to sing,
Yes, true love's a many splendored thing.

80. OVER THE RAINBOW

Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high,
There's a land that I heard of, once in a lullabye
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 blue birds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow
Why then, why can't 1.

81. ONLY YOU

Only you can make this world seem right,
Only you can make the darkness bright.
Only you and you alone,
Can thrill me like you do,
And fill my heart with love for only you.
Only you can make this change in me,
For it's true you're are my destiny,
When you hold my hand,
I understand, the magic that you do,
You're my dream come true, my one and only you.

82. WOODEN HEART

Can't you see that I love you.
Please don't break my heart in two,
That's not hard to do,
Cause I don't have a wooden heart.

And if you say goodbye,
Then I know that I would cry,
Maybe I would die.
'Cause I don't have a wooden heart.

There's no strings on this love of mine,
It was only you from the start.

'Cause I don't have a wooden heart.
Treat me nice, treat me good,
Treat me as you really should,
'Cause I'm not made of wood.
And I don't have a wooden heart.

83. WHEN YOU'RE SMILING

When you're smiling, when you're smiling,
The whole world smiles with you,
When you're laughing, when you're laughing,
The sun comes shining thro'.
But when you're crying, you bring on the rain,
So stop your sighing, be happy again.
Keep on smiling, for when you're smiling,
The whole world smiles with you.

84. BEAUTIFUL DREAMER

Beautiful dreamer wake unto me,
Starlight and dew drops are waiting for thee,
Sounds of the rude world, heard in the day,
Lull'd by the moonlight have all passed away.

Beautiful dreamer queen of my song,
List while I woo thee with soft melody.
Gone are the cares oflife's busy throng,
Beautiful dreamer wake unto me

Beautiful dreamer out on the sea,
Beautiful dreamer out on the sea,
Mermaids are chanting the wild lorelei,
Over the streamlet vapours are born,
Waiting to fade at the bright coming morn.

Beautiful dreamer wake unto me.
Beautiful dreamer wake unto me.
Beautiful dreamer beam of my heart,
E'en as the morn on the streamlet and sea,
Then will all clouds of sorrow depart,
Beautiful dreamer wake unto me.
Beautiful dreamer wake unto me.

I love to go a wandering along the mountain track,
And as I go I love to sing,
With a knapsack on my back.
CHORUS
Valderee, Valdera, Valderi,
Valdera - ha,- ha,- ha,-ha,- ha.
Valderee, Valdera,
My knapsack on my back.

I love to wander by the stream,
That dances in the sun,
So joyously it calls to me,
Come join my happy song.

I wave my hat to all I meet,
And they wave back to me,
And black birds call, so loud and sweet,
From every green wood tree,

Oh! May I go a wandering,
Until the day I die,
Oh! May I always laugh and sing,
Beneath God's clear blue sky.

86. BLUEBERRY HILL

I found my thrill on Blueberry Hill,
On Blueberry Hill when I found you,
The moon stood still on Blueberry Hill,
It lingered until my dreams come true.

CHORUS
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 a part of me still,
For you were my thrill,
On Blueberry Hill. (Chorus)

87. CARRY ME BACK TO OLD VIRGINNY

Carry me hack to old Virginny
There's where the cotton,
And the corn and 'taters grow.
There's where the birds,
Warble sweet in the springtime.
There's where the old darkies,
Heart and long to go.

There's where I laboured so hard for old mass a,
Day after day in the fields of yellow corn.
N a place on earth, .
Do I love you most sincerely,
Than old Virginny the place where I was born.
Carw xne bllck to old Virginny,
There let me live,
Till I wither and decay.
Long by the old dismal swamp,
Have I wandered,
There's where this life will pass away.

Massa and Missus have long gone before me,
Soon we will meet.
On that bright and golden shore,
There we'll be happy,
And free from all sorrow.
There's where we'll meet,
And we'll never part no more.

88. ISLE OF CAPRI

It was on the Isle of Capri that I met her,
Beneath the shade of an old walnut tree.
I can still see the flowers blooming around her,
As we meet on the Isle of Capri.
She was as sweet as a rose in the dawning.
But somehow fate had not meant her for me,
And as I sat with the tide in the morning.
It was goodbye to the Isle of Capri.

Summer time was nearly over,
Blue Italian skies above, I said 'lady I'm a rover,
Can't you spare one sweet word of love.
She whispered softly it's better not to linger,
And as I kissed her hand I could see,
She wore a plain golden ring on her finger.
T'was goodbye to the Isle of Capri.

89. CRYING IN THE CHAPEL

You saw me crying in the chapel,
The tears I shed were tears of joy.
I know the meaning of contentment,

Now I'm happy with the Lord.
Just a plain and simple chapel,
Where humble people go to pray.
I pray the Lord that I'll grow stronger,
As I live from day to day.
I've searched and searched,
But I couldn't find the way on earth,
To gain peace of mind.

Now I'm happy in the chapel,
Where people are of one accord, .
Yes we gather in the chapel,
Just to sing and praise the Lord.
You'll search and you'll search,
But you'll never find the way on earth,
To gain peace of mind.

Take your troubles to the chapel,
Get down on your knees and pray,
Then your burdens will be lighter,
And you'll surely find the way.

90. DOGGIE IN THE WINDOW

How much is that doggie in the window bow, woW,
The one with the wagedly tail.
How much is that doggie in the window,
I do hope that doggie's for sale.
I must take a trip to California,
And leave my poor sweatheart alone.
Ifhe has a dog he won't be lonesome,
And the doggie '11 have a good home,

I read in the papers there are robbers,
With flash lights 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 fishes,
He can't take a goldfish for walks.

91.0 DEAR WHAT CAN THE MA'ITER BE

CHORUS .
0 dear what can the matter be,
Three old ladies locked in the lavatory.

Famed as the Duchess of Dorchester's daughter.
She went in on account of some overdue water.
And nobody knew she was there. (Chorus)

The name of the next was Elizabeth Humfrey,
Who heard that the seats were so nice and so comfy
The varnish was wet and she couldn't get her bum free.
And nobody knew she was there. (Chorus)

The name of the third was Elizabeth Bender,
Who went in to fix up a broken suspender,
Which got all mixed up with her feminine gender.
And nobody knew she was there. (Chorus)

This wasn't on account of an overdose of liquor,
They went out to tea with the wife of the Vicar,
They went in together' cause they thought it was quicker.
and nobody knew they were there. (Chorus)

At the coroner's inquest they called it suicide. (Chorus)

Old mother Hubbard went to the cupboard,
To find her daughter a dress,
But when she got there the cupboard was bare
And so her daughter I guess. (Chorus)

94. MY OLD KENTUCKY HOME

The sun shines bright in myoId Kentucky home,
The summer the darkies are gay.
The corn tops ripe and the meadows in the bloom,
While the birds make music all the day.
The young folks roll on the little cabin floor,
All merry happy and bright.

By and By hard times come a-knocking at the door,
Then myoId Kentucky home goodnight.
Weep no more my baby,
0 weep no more today.
We will sing one song, to myoId Kentucky home,
For the old Kentucky home far away.

95. LOVE STORY

Where do I begin,
To tell the story of how great love can be,
The sweet love story that is greater than the sea.
The simple truth of the love she brings to me,
Where do I start, with her first halo.
She gave a meaning to the empty world of mine,
There'll never be another love another time.
She came into my life and made living fine,
She fills my heart, she fills my heart,
With very special things.
With angel songs and wild imaginings.
She fills my soul with so much love.
That anywhere I go I'm never lonely,
With her along who could be lonely.
I reach for her hand, it's always there,
How long does it last,
Can love be measured by the hours of the day.
I have no answers now, but this much I can say.
I know I'll need her till the stars all burn away,
And she'll be there.

Never let me go.
You have made my life complete, and I love you so.
Love me tender, love me true,
All my dreams fulfill.
For, my darling I love you, and I always will.

99. RED RIVER VALLEY

CHORUS
Please come back to the red river valley,
Please come back to the heart that is true,
I'll be here in the red river valley,
I'll be waiting my darling for you.
Oh my darling I know you'll be leaving
Though you say it's just for a while
But my darling you know I'll be grieving
For the sound of your voice and sweet smile. (Chorus)

I am dreaming a long time my darling
For a word you never can say
But yoU know that my dreams are all ended
For you say that you are going away. (Chorus)

From this valley they say you are going,
We will miss your bright eyes and sweet smile,
For they say you are taking the sunshine,
That has brightened our pathways awhile.
(Chorus)

Won't you think of the valley you are leaving,
Oh how lonely and sad it will be.
Oh, think of the fond hearts you're breaking,
And the grief you're causing to me. (Chorus)

100. GALWAY BAY

If you ever go across the bay to Ireland,
Then maybe at the closing of day,
You will sit and watch the moon rise over Claddagh,
And see the sun go down on Galway Bay.
Just to hear the ripples of the trout stream,
The women in the meadow making hay,
Just to sit beside a turf fire in the cabin,
And watch the barefoot children at their play.
Oh! The strangers came and tried to teach us their way,
They scorned us just for being what we are,
But they might as well go chasing after moonbeams,
Or light a penny candle for a star.
Oh! And if there is going to be a life hereafter,
And somehow I am sure there's going to be,
Then I'll ask my God to let me make my heaven
In the dear land across the Irish sea.

101. ADIOS AMIGO

Adios amigo, adios my friend,
The road that I traveled
Has come to an end.
When two lovers love the same love, One lover has to,
lose,
And it's you that she longs for, It's you that she will
choose.

Adios compadre what must be, must be.
Remember to name one new one for me;
I ride to Rio where my life I will spend.
Adios Amigo, adios my friend.
Adios Compadre, let us shed no tears,
Mayall your memories bring joys thro' the years,
Away from men, my life I must spend.
A~ios amigo adios my friend.

102. BUONA SERA

Buona Sera, signorina Buona Sera
It is time to say goodnight to Napoli.
Though it is hard for us to whisper "Bouna Sera,"
With the old moon over the Mediterranean sea.

In the morning signorina we'll go walking,
Where the mountains and the sand come into sight,
By the little jewelers shop we'll stop to linger,
While I buy a wedding ring for your finger.
In the meantime let me tell you that I love you,
Buona Sera signorina kiss me goodnight.

103. BONNIE BONNIE BANKS OF

LOC LOMOND
By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie braes,
Where the sun shines bright in Loc Lomond.
Where me and my true love were ever won't to go,
On the bonnie bonnie banks of Loc Lomond.

CHORUS
0 ye'll take the high road,
And I'll take the low road,
And I'll be in Scotland before you.
For me and my true love will never meet again,
On the bonnie bonnie banks of Loc Lomond.

T'was there we parted in yon shady glen,
On the steep steep sides of Ben Lomond.
Where in purple hue, the hielan' hills we view,
And the moon looming out of
the gloaming. (Chorus)

The wild flowers spring and the wee birdies sing,
And in sunshine the waters are sleeping.
But the broken heart, it knows no second spring,
Though the woefu' may cease from
their greeting. (Chorus)

104. COUNTING COLOURS IN THE RAINBOW

Counting colours in the rainbow;
When the sun has made a rainbow.
In all those colours I see above me,
I count the blessings of someone who loves me.

CHORUS
Counting colours in the rainbow,
Everytime the clouds so gray go by
A thrill it gives me, to know that with me
There will be millions, who can share my rainbow.

When our world is dark in stormy weather,
Should we fear and tremble never, never,
Someone who takes care of us forever,
Paints lovely miracles on high. (Chorus)

105. COCKLES AND MUSSELS

In Dublin's fair city where the girls are so pretty,
I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone,
As she wheeled her wheel-barrow
Through streets broad and narrow,
Crying "Cockels and Mussels, alive alive 0

CHORUS
Alive Alive 0, Alive Alive 0 crying,
"Cockles and Mussels, Alive Alive 0."

She was a fishmonger, and sure t'was no wonder,
For so were her father and mother before;
And they each wheeled their barrow,
Thro' streets broad and narrow,
Crying "Cockles and Mussels, alive alive 0"
(Chorus)

She died of a fever, and no - one could save her,
And that was the end of sweet Molly Malone,
Now her ghost wheels her barrow,
Through streets broad and narrow.
Crying "Crying Cockles and Mussels, alive, alive 0".
(Chorus)

106. DOH A DEER

Doh a deer a female deer,
Ray a drop of golden sun,
Me a name I call myself,
Far, along long way to run.
So a needle pulling thread,
La a note to follow so,
Tea a drink with jam and bread,
This will bring us back to do - a - o. ( R E PEA T )

107. HOME ON THE RANGE

0 give me a home where the buffaloes roam,
And the deer and the antelope play,
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word,
And the skies are not cloudy all day.

CHORUS
Home, home on the range,
Where the deer and the antelope play,
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word,
And the sky is not cloudy all day.
How often by night when the heavens are bright
Will the light of the guiding stars,
Have I stood here amazed and asked as I gazed,
If the glory exceeds that of ours. (Chorus)

108. AMAZING GRACE

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound,
lance was lost but now I'm found,
Was blind but now I see.

T'was grace that taught my heart to fear,
How precious did that grace appear,
The hour I just believed.
Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come.
T'was grace that brought me safe thus far,
And grace will take me home.

109. INNOCENT HEARTS

We were two innocent hearts,
Yes we were two innocent hearts,
Never in love before.
We met at a high school party,
It was a party just for tea.
As I gazed into the corner,
There were two eyes set on me.
So I asked her for a dance,
And as she danced across the floor,
I knew that I loved her,
And I would never let her go.
We were two innocent hearts,
Yes We were two innocent hearts,
Never in love before.
She was smiling oh! So gaily,
With smile that promised more,
And I knew that I had never,
Ever felt that way before.
Then she "told me that she loved me,
~d I knew right then and there,
hat this was the beginning,
Of the newest love affair.

110. I'LL TAKE YOU HOME AGAIN KATHLEEN

I'll take you home again Kathleen,
Across the ocean wild and wide,
To where your heart has ever been
Since first you were my bonny bride.
The rose have all left your cheek,
I've watched them fade away and die;
Your voice is sad whene'er you speak,
And tears bedim your loving eyes.

CHORUS
Oh I will take you home again Kathleen,
To where your heart will feel no pain.
And when the fields are fresh and green,
I'll take you to your home again.
I know you love me Kathleen dear,
Your heart was ever fond and true,
I always feel when you're near
That life holds nothing dear but you.
The smiles that once you gave to me,
I scarcely ever see them now.
Though many many times I see
A dark'ning shadow on your brow. (Chorus)

To that dear home beyond the sea
My Kathleen shall again return,
And when thy old friends welcome thee,
Thy loving heart shall cease to yearn.
Where laughs the little silver stream,
Beside your mother's humble cot,
And brightest rays of sunshine gleam
There all your grief will be forgot. (Chorus)

111. JAMAICAN FAREWELL

Down the way where the nights are gay,
And the sun shines daily on the mountain tops,
I took a trip on a sailing ship,
And when I reached Jamaica I made a stop.

CHORUS
But I'm sad to say I'm on my way,
Won't be back for many a day.
My heart is down my head is turning around.
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town.
Down at the market you can hear,
Ladies cry out, while on their heads they bear,
Husky rice and fish on ice,
And the rum is fine any time of the year,
Sounds oflaughter everywhere
And the dancing girls go to and fro,
I must declare my heart is there,
Tho' I've been from Maine to Mexico. (Chorus)

112. JEANEE WITH THE LIGHT BROWN HAIR

I dream of Jeanee with the light brown hair,
Bourne like a vapour on the summer air.
I see her tripping where the bright streams play,
Bappy as the daisies that dance on her way.
Many are the wild notes her merry voice would pour,
Many were the blithe biTds that warbled them o'er ah......
I dream of Jeanee with the light brown hair,
Floating like a vapour on the soft summer air
I sigh for Jeanee, but her light form strayed,
Far from the fond hearts, 'round her native glade.
Her smiles have vanished and her sweet songs flown,
Flitting like the dreams that have cheered us and gone.
Now the nodding wild flowr's wither on the shore,
While her gentle fingers will cull them no more.
Ah. . .. . ... ..I sigh for Jeanee with the light brown hair,
Floating like a vapour on the soft summer air.

113. LOVE LETTERS IN THE SAND

On a day like today, we passed the time away
Writing love letters in the sand.
How you laughed when I cried each time,
I saw the tide take our love letters from the sand.
You made a vow that you would ever be true,
But somehow that vow meant nothing to you.......
Broken heart aches with every wave
That breaks over the love letters on the sand.

114. LUCKY LIPS

When I was just a baby I didn't have any toys,
But mama used to say
"Son now you've got more than other boys.
N ow you may not be good looking,
You may not be too rich,
But you'll never ever be alone
Because you've got lucky lips.

CHORUS
Lucky lips are always kissing
Lucky lips are never blue,
Lucky lips you'll always find
A pair of lips so true.
Don't need a four leaf Clover,
Rabbits or good luck charm
Because with lucky lips you'll always
Find a baby in your arms.
I'll never get heartbroken,
I'll never get blues,
For when I play the game of love,
I know Ijust can't lose.
When they spin the wheel of fortune,
All I do is to kiss my chips.
For I know that I'm about to win.
'Cause I got lucky lips. (Chorus)

115. POLY WOLLY DOODLE

Oh! I went down south for to see my gal,
Singing Polly wolly doodle all the day.
My Sally am a spunky girl,
Singing Polly Wolly doodle all the day.

CHORUS
Fare thee well, Fare thee well,
Fare thee well, My fairy fay,
For I'm going to Louisianna,
For to see my Susyanna,
Singing Polly Wolly doodle all the day

Oh, my Sal, she am a maiden fair,
With curly eyes and laughing hair. (Chorus)

I came to a river and couldn't get across
I jumped on a nigger and tho't he was a hoss. (Chorus)

116. LITTLE BROWN JUG

My wife and I lived all alone,
In a little log hut we called our own;
She loved gin and I loved rum,
I tell you what, we'd had lots offun.

CHORUS
Ha,Ha,Ha, you and me,
"Little brown jug" Don't I love thee.
Ha,Ha, Ha, you and me, little brown jug
don't I love thee.
If I'd a cow that gave such milk,
I'd clothe her in the finest silk;
I'd feed her on the choicest hay,
And milk her forty times a day. (Chorus)
The roses are red, my nose is, too,
The violet is blue, and so are you,
And yet I guess before I stop,
We'd better take another drop. (Chorus)

117. WITH SOMEONE LIKE YOU

With someone like you a pal so good and true,
I'd like to leave it all behind and go and find,

Some place that's known to God alone
Just a spot to call our own.
We'll find a perfect peace where joys will never cease,
Out there beneath the starry sky.
We'll build a sweet little nest out there in the west,
And let the rest of the world go by.

118. MINSTRAL BOY

The minstrel boy to the war has gone,
In the ranks of death you will find him.
His father's sword he hath girded on,
And his wild harp slung behind him.
Land of song, said the warrior bard,
Tho' all the world betrays,
Sword at least thy rights shall guard,
One faithful harp shall praise thee.
The minstrel fell.. ...but the foe- man's chain
Could not bring the proud un-der;
The harp he lov'd ne'er spoke again,
For he tore the chords assunder,
And said" No chain shall sully thee,
Thou soul of love and brav'ry.
Songs were made for the pure and free,
They shall nev'r sound in slav'ry."

119. ~ GRANDFATHERS CLOCK

My grandfather's clock was too large for its shelf,
So it stodd ninety years on the floor,
It was taMer by half than the old man himself,
Though it weighed not a penny weight more.
It was bought on the morn on the day that he was born,
And was always his pleasure and pride.

CHORUS
But it stopped short, never to go again,
When the old man died
Ninety years without slumbering,
(Tick tock, tick tock)
His lifes seconds numbering,
(Tick tock, tick tock)
It stopped short never to go again,
When the old man died.

In watching the pendulum swing to and fro,
Many hours had he spent while a boy;
And in childhood and manhood
The clock seemed to know,
And to share both his grief and his joy,
For it struck twenty- four when he entered the door,
With blooming and beautiful bride. (Chorus)

It rang an alarm in the dead of the night.
An alarm that for years had been dumb.
And we knew that his spirit was pluming for flight,
That his hour for departure had come,
Still the clock kept the time with a soft and
muffled chime,
And we silently stood by his side. (Chorus)

120. OLD FOLKS AT HOME

Way down upon the Swanee RIver, far far away,
Dere's where my heart is turning ebber,
Dere's wha' de old folks stay. (Chorus)

All roun' the little farm I wander'd,
When I was young,
Den many happy days I squander'd,
Many de songs I sung. (Chorus)
One little hut among the bushes,
One dat I love,
Still sadly to my mem'ry rushes,
No matter where I rove. (Chorus)

CHORUS.
All the world am sad and dreary,
Eb'ry where I roam,
Oh, darkies how my heart grows weary,
Far from de old folks at home.
All up an' down de whole creation
Sadly I roam,
Still longing for the old plantation,
An' for de old folks at home. (Chorus)
When I was playin' wid my brudder,
Happy was I,
Oh, take me to my kind old mudder,
Dere let me live and die. (Chorus)
When will I see the bees a- hummin'
All round de comb?
When will I hear de banjo strummin',
Down in my good old home? (Chorus

121. PUPPET ON A STRING

CHORUS.
I wonder if some day that,
You say that you care,
If you say love me madly,
I'll gladly be there like a puppet on a string.
Love is just like a merry-go-round;
With all the fun ofthe fair.
One day I'm feeling down on the ground,
Then I'm up in the air.
Are you leading me on,
Tomorrow you'll be gone. (Chorus)
I may win in the roundabout,
Then I lose on the swing.
In and out there's never a doubt,
Just who's pulling the string.
I'm all tied up in you,
Where are you leading me to? (Chorus)

122. ROSE OF TRALEE

The pale moon was rising above the green mountain,
The sun was declining beneath the blue sea;
When I strayed with my loved one,
To the clear crystal fountain,
That stands in the beautiful vale of Tralee.
She was lovely and fair, as the rose of the
summer.
Yet 'twas not her beauty alone that won me.
Oh no 'twas the truth in her eyes ever dawning
That made me love Mary the Rose of Tralee.
The cool shades of the evening their mantle was spread,
And Mary all smiling was listening to me,
The moon through the valley her pale rays was shedding,
When I won the heart of he Rose of Tralee.
Though lovely and fair as the Rose of the Summer,
Oh no.'Twas the truth in her eyes ever dawning,
That made me love Mary the Rose of Tralee.

123. SUMMER HOLIDAY

We're all going on a summer holiday,
No more worries for me or you for a week or two;
Fun and laughter on a summer holiday,
No more worries for me or you.
We are going where the sun shines brightly,
We are going where the sea is blue.
We've seen it in the movies,
Let's see if it is true.
Everybody has a summer holiday,
Doing things we wanna do.
So we're going on a summer holiday,
To make our dreams come true,
For a week or two.

124. STRANGERS IN THE NIGHT

Strangers in the night,
Exchanging glances,
Wondering in the night,
What were the chances.
We'd be exchanging love before,
The night was through.
Something in your eyes was so inviting,
Something in your smile 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 till the moment we said our first hello,
Little did we know, that love was just a glance away,
A warm embracing dance away.
And ever since that night we've been together,
Love was at first sight.
In love forever it turned out so bright,
For strangers in the night.

125. SUMMER WINE

Strawberries and Cherries and an angel kissing spring,
My summer wine is really made from all these things.
Take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time,
And I will give to you. . . .. .. .Summer wine.
Oh! Summer wine.

I walked the town on silver spurs that jingled to
A song that I could sing for just a few.
She saw my silver spurs and said "Let's pass the
time,"
And I will give to you................ .Summer wine.
Oh! Summer wine.

My songs grew heavy and my lips they couldn't speak,
I tried to get up but I couldn't find my feet.
She reassured me with an unfamiliar line,
Then she gave to me more summer wine,
More summer wine.
When I woke up the sun was shining in my eyes,
My silver spurs were gone, my head felt twice its size.
She took my silver spurs, a dollar and a dime,
And left me craving for more summer wine.
More summer wine.

126. SWING LOW SWEET CHARIOT

CHORUS
Swing low sweet chariot coming for to
carry me home.
Swing low sweet chariot coming for to
carry me home.
I looked over Jordan and what did I see,
Coming for to carry me home.
A band of angels coming after me.
Coming for to carry me home. (Chorus)
If yoU get there before I do,
Coming for to carry me home.
Tell all my friends I'm coming too.
COming for to carry me home. (Chorus)
I'm sometimes up. I'm sometimes down,
Corning for to carry me home.
But still my soul; feels heavenly bound.
Coming for to carry me home. (Chorus)

127. SHOW ME THE WAY TO GO HOME

Show me the way to go home,
I'm tired and I want to go to bed,
I had a drink about an hour ago,
And it's gone right to my head.
No matter where I roam, on land or sea or foam,
You can always hear me singing that song.
"Show me the way to go home."

128. WHEN JOHNNY COMES MARCHING HOME

When Johnny comes marching home again,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
We'll give him a hearty welcome then,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
The men will cheer, the boys will shout,
The ladies they will turn out;
And we'll all feel gay.
When Johnny comes marching home.
Get ready for the Jubilee,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
We'll give the hero three times three,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
The laurel wreath is ready now,
To place upon his royal brow.
And we'll all feel gay,
When Johnny comes marching home.

Let love and friendship on that day,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
Their choicest treasures then display,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
And let each one perform his part,
To fill with love the warrior's heart,
And we'll all feel gay,
When Johnny comes marching home.

129. WHEN THE SAINTS GO MARCHING BY

I'm just a weary pilgrim,
Plodding thro' this world of sin
Getting ready for the city,
When the saints go marching in.

CHORUS
Oh when the saints go marching in,
Oh when the saints go marching in.
Oh Lord I want to be in that number.
When he saints go marching in. (Chorus)

When the world is revealed. (Chorus)

Oh when the new world is revealed,
Oh when the new world is revealed.
Oh, Lord I want to be in that number.
Oh when the new world is revealed. (Chorus)

130. Old Black Joe

Gone are the days when my heart was young and gay;
Gone are my friends from the cotton fields away,
Gone from the earth to a better land I know,
I hear their gentle voices calling "Poor Old Joe."
CHORUS
I'm coming, I'm coming,
For my head is bending low;
I hear their gentle voices calling "Poor Old Joe."
Why do I weep when my heart should feel no pain?
Why do I sigh that my friends come not again?
Grieving for forms now departed long ago,
I hear their gentle voices calling "Poor Old Joe."
(Chorus)

All I want is a room somewhere,
Far away from the cold night air;
With one enormous chair...

Lots of choc'late for me to eat;
Lots of coal makin' lots of heat;
Warm face, warm hands, warm feet...?

133. I COULD HAVE DANCED ALL NIGHT

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 hundred things
I've never done before.
i ill never know,What made it so exiciting
Why all at once my heart took flight.
I only know when he began to dance with me,
I could have danced, danced, danced, all night!

134. ON THE STREET WHERE YOU LIVE

I have often walked this street before;
But the pavement always stayed beneath my feet before.
All at once I am several stories high.
Knowing I'm on the street you live.
Are there lilac trees in the heart of town?

Can you hear a lark in any other part of town?
Does enchantment pour out of ev'ry door?
No it's just on the street where you live.
And Oh! The towering feeling.
Just to know that somehow you are near!
The overpowering feeling,
That any second you may suddenly appear.
People stop and stare, they don't bother me,
For there's nowhere else on earth I'd rather be.
Let the time go by I won't care if,
I can be here on the street where you live.

135 SOUND OF MUSIC

The hills are live with the sound of music,
With songs they have sung for a thousand years.
The hills fill my heart with tpe sound of music
My heart wants to sing every song it hears.
My heart wants to beat like the wings of bird,
That rise from the lakes to the trees;
My heart wants to sigh like a chime,
That flies from the church on the breeze;
To laugh like a brook when it trips and falls,
Over stJue on it's way.
To sing thro' the night-
Like a lark who is learning to pray,
Go to the hills when my heart is lonely,
I know I will hear, what I've never heard before.
My heart will be blessed with the sound of music,
Andl'll sing once more.

136. MARIA

How do you solve a problem like Maria?
How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?
How do you find a word that means Maria?
A flibberting gibbet, a will-o-the-wisp, a clown.
Many a thing she ought to understand.
But how do you make her stay,
And listen to all you say.
How do you keep a wave upon the sand?
Oh! How do you solve a problem like Maria?
How do you hold a moonbeam in your hand?

137. TOM DOOLY

Hang down your head Tom Dooley.
Hang down your head and cry.
Hang down your head Tom Dooley.
Poor boy, you're bound to die.

I met her on the mountain, there I took her life.
Met her on the mountain, stabbed her with my knife.

Hang down your head, Tom Dooley.
Hang down your head and cry. (ah- uh - eye)

Hang down your head, and cry (ah - uh - eye).

Hang down your head, Tom Dooley.
Poor boy, you're bound to die (ah well now boy).

138. SIXTEEN GOING ON SEVENTEEN

You are sixteen going on seventeen,
Baby it's time to think,
Better beware, be canny and careful;
Baby you're on the brink.
You are sixteen going on seventeen,
Fellers will fall in line,
Eager young lads and rogues and cads,
Will offer you food and wine.

CHORUS
Totally unprepared are you,
To face a world of men.
Timid and shy and scared are you
Of things beyond your ken.
You need someone older and wiser,
Telling you what to do - 00.
I am seventeen going on eighteen,
I'll take care of you.
I am sixteen going on seventeen,
I know that I'm naive.
Fellers I meet may tell me I'm sweet,
And willingly. I'll believe.
I am sixteen going on seventeen,
Innocent as a rose.
Bachelor dandies, drinker of brandies,
What do I know of those? (Chorus)

139. OH! TO BE IN ENGLAND

CHORUS
Oh! To be in England, now that spring is here.
Oh! To be in England drinking English beer.
English people sitting in the sun to get a tan.
Pouring oil upon the back just like a frying pan.
Funny thing of all this, they are almost rosy red.
Next day when the peeling starts,
they're crying in the bed. (Chorus)

Boiled potatoes roast beef and Yorkshire pudding too.
That is all you'll ever find upon a set menu,
They don't know that I make an Anglo - English fry,
Tell me have you ever heard of a snake and
kidney pie. (Chorus).

140. SOUTH OF THE BORDER

South of the border down Mexico way,
That's where I fell in love,
When the stars above came out to play.
And now as I wonder my hearts ever stray.
South of the border down Mexico way.

She was a picture in old Spanish lace.
Just for a tender while, I kissed the smile upon
her face.
For it was fresh and we were so gay,
South of the border down Mexico way.
Then she sighed as she whispered Manana.
Never dreaming that we were parting,
And I lied as I whispered Manana.
For our tomorrow never came.
South of the border down Mexico way.
South of the border I rode back one day,
There in the veil of light in the candle light,
She knelt to pray.
Sou th of the border down Mexico way.

141. GOODNESS GRACIOUS ME

Oh! Doctor I'm in trouble,
Well goodness gracious me!
For every time a certain man is standing next to me.
A flush comes to my face,
And my pulse begins to race.
It goes boom ditty boom, ditty boom

Boom ditty boom ditty boom
Well, goodness gracious me!

What kind of man is he to create this allergy?
It goes boom ditty boom ditty boom

Boom ditty boom ditty boom

Well, goodness gracious me!
Oh! Doctor touch my fingers.

At a certain tender touch?
It goes boom ditty boom ditty boom
Ditty boom ditty boom ditty boom
Ditty boom boom boom.
Boom ditty boom ditty boom ditty boom.
Well goodness gracious me!
Put two and two together if you have eyes to see,
The face that makes my pulses race,
Is right in front of me.
There's nothing I can do, for my heart is jumping too.
We go boom ditty boom ditty boom ditty.
Boom ditty boom ditty boom ditty boom boom boom.
Boom ditty boom ditty boom ditty boom.
Well goodness gracious.

Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth,
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices.

For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn!
Fall on your knees,
Oh! hear the angel voices,
Oh! night divine,
Oh! night when Christ was born,
Oh! night divine, Oh! night divine.
Led by the light serenly beaming,
With glowing hearts by his cradle we stand,
So led by a star so sweetly gleaming.
Here come the wise men from Orient land.
The King of Kings lay thus in a lowly manger,
In all our trials born to be our friend.
He knows our need ,He guardeth us from danger.
Behold the King! Before Him lowly bend.
Behold the King! Before Him lowly bend.
