Blind date

Smooth the sofa, plump the pillows

Dump the ashtrays, oh this dress

Look at me

I am shaking all over,

Shaking all over

I'm a mess

Waiting wondering what I'll be thinking

When he comes walking through that door

What'll come walking through that door

A man I never saw in my life before

Oh, I am so nervous

I got a blind date waiting to call on me (any minute now)

I got a blind date what am I gonna see (any minute now)

Right over there's the doorway,

He will be walking through

Will he be six foot eight or maybe four foot two (it could happen)

I got a blind date waiting to come around (any minute now)

Oy but I'm nervous listen to my heart pound

Why do I need this headache,

Single is not a crime

I got a blind date

An with my luck he'll be on time

I got a girlfriend Shirley, who says why not (she's an idiot)

This guy is a friend from a friend of a friend she got

(Hello, how do you do what an idiot)

One thing I know is Shirley ain't sitting on no shelf

If he was such a vow she'd keep him for herself (it's only natural)

She says she is he's nice and he deals in stocks

(Sounds good, but she's an idiot)

I'll bet a buck he looks like month-old lox (also and idiot)

What do I need from Shirley her and her fifty cup

I got a blind date and I'm praying he stands me up

Wait wait, what am I praying he stands me up,

I'll stand him up.

I smell a rat anyway.

Umm. I'm gonna hide under the bed, he'll never see me,

He'll walk in and look around, I wouldn't be there,

He'll go away and that's the end of that. Perrfect!

Now you keep quiet, not a word you hear

You didn't see a thing

Oeps there he is!

Now quiet everybody sssh quiet!

Blind date: Rosalie?!

Rosalie: Oi, oi, oi

Blind date: Rosalie?! that's odd she doesn't seem to be here

Rosalie: Smart, smart!

Blind date: I've been stood up, it's news

Rosalie: Well it's better than put down

Blind date: This has never happened before

Rosalie: What and ego!

Blind date: Rosalie?!

Rosalie: Sh, sh, sh! It worked, it worked! He never saw me.

Boy am I lucky I didn't see him neither,

But I can just imagine what a lox that one was.

I got it right her Shirley was playing tricks

Voice: No, no, that's wrong, you got it wrong

Rosalie: Wait, wait, what that's not right?

Voice: No, he was gorgeous he looked like Rudolph

Rosalie: Rudolph who?

Voice: Rudolph Valentino

Rosalie: Get away

Voice: Yeah, the sheik from Arabia

Rosalie: Not the phantom from the opera?

Voice: Uh, Uh

Rosalie: The sheik from where?

Voice: The sheik from Arabia

Rosalie: Get away

Voice: That's right

Rosalie: Wait a minute is this person kidding me around here?

Voice: No, no absolutely

Rosalie: Get away

Well that's what happened

I let him get away

What will I do now maybe become a nun (That's impossible)

I'm calling Shirley maybe she'll bring a gun

Please Shirley, even if he's Lon Chaney fat, bald or short or tall

Having a blind date is better than having

No date, at no time with no one at all.

Wait a minute maybe I spoke too soon

Shirley get me out of here!

Oh this one is cute.

More than you know

More than you know

More than you know

Man of my heart,

I love you so

Lately I find

You're on my mind

More than you know

Whether you're right, whether you're wrong

Man of my heart,

I'll string along

You need me so

More than you'll ever know

Loving you the way that I do

There's nothing I can do about it

Loving may be all you can give

But honey,

I can't live without it

Oh how I'd cry,

Oh how I'd cry

If you got tired, and said goodbye

More than I'd show

More than you'd ever know.

It's only a paper moon/I like him

Say it's only a paper moon,

Sailing over a cardboard see

But it wouldn't be make belief if you belief in me

I like him

I know he's phoney

But when they packages it nice

And market it right

I buy beloney

Yes I like him

Though I can see that he's the type

I'd better get busy and do unto to first

Before I find he's done unto me

He's mostly made of chutzpah

A fake a con a lie

Could be I like him 'cause

So am I

I found a million dollar baby (in a five & ten cent store)

It was a lucky April shower

It was a most convenient dorm

I found a million dollar baby

in a five and ten cent store

The rain continued for an hour

I hang around for three our four

Around a million dollar baby

In a five an ten cent store

She was selling china

And when she made those eyes

I kept buying china

Until the crop got wise

Incidentally

If you should run into a shower

Just step inside my cottage door

And meet the million dollar baby

From the five and ten cent store

Incidentally

If you should run into a shower

Just step inside my cottage door

And meet the million dollar baby

from the five and ten

Five and ten cents store

So long honey lamb

Ben:So long honey lamb

I'll be seeing you time for us to part

Fanny: I'll be twinkling

Ben: So long honey lamb

I'll be keeping you right here in my heart

Fanny: Watch me winckeling

Ben: Think of this as temporary

Just a toedeloe

Fanny: Toeldeloe to you too

Ben: How much will I miss you

Fanny: How much

Ben: Very

Let that see you through

But in the mean time

So long honey lamb we'll be close again

Baby don't cry

Someday we'll be nose to nose again

Someday bye and bye

In a world that has no winter

Were each month is June

So long honey lamb

I'll be seeing you soon

 

Fanny: I certainly know

I'm gonna miss the old plantation

And the sound of banjo's thrumming on the summernights

I certainly know

I hate my common situation

Because I'm on a cord and wings and

I'm afraid from heights

I'm certainly gonna miss the taste of watermelon

And the fields I ran and the hills I hiked

All I'm gonna get to meet up here is angels

And to tell the truth

I never met an angel my life

I certainly know I didn't trew a lucky seven

Though I'm hardly a complainer and a wooden carp

I wonder what the hell

I'm gonna do in heaven

I could never plug a chicken and alone a harp

Ben: When you gotta go they tell you

Well you gotta go so...

When you gotta go they tell you

You gotta go

So faith my child has pluses and minuses

Fanny: Golden dust is cleansing my sinuses

Ben: Rise above if that's what you gotta do

Fanny: Look up I am ca ca I got news for you

Ben: So long honey lamb I'll be seeing you soon

Fanny: Look for me in the moon

Together: I'll be seeing you soon

I got a code in my doze

Feeling awfully bad

What a time I had

'Cause I didn't buttoned up my overcoat

Hatsjoe

All I do is sniff

Pass that handkerchief

What a funny feeling

In my eyes and ears and throat

Oy, I can't sleep

I can't eat

Get a pail and soak my feet

I got a code in my doze

O, I got a code in my doze

Please repeat what you said

Funny noises in my head

I got a code in my doze

Oh, I got a code in my doze

Went to see the doctor

Asked him what to do

Lordy help that doctor

He said I think I got one too

So we laid down side by side

I'm still here but the doctor died

I got a code in my doze

Oh, I got a code in my doze

Hatsjoe

(It's gonna be a) Great day

When you're down and out

Lift up your head and shout

There's gonna be a great day

Angels in the sky

Some early morn

You will hear his horn

It's not far away

Lift up your head and say

There's gonna be a great day

Great day

How lucky can you get

Ain't she got fun,

She's the luckiest one

Satin on my shoulder and a smile on my lips

How lucky can you get

Money in my pocket right at my fingertips

How lucky can you get

Every night a party where the fun never ends

You can circle the globe with my circle of friends

Someone I am crazy for is crazy for me

I'm his personal pet

Wow how lucky can you get

See her diamonds are gleam

Her life is a dream

Wrap it up and charge it

That's my is my favourite phrase

How lucky can you get

When I see the chauffeur think

I'll give him a raise

How lucky can you get

Weekends in the country with the baron of course

And a wardrobe to shock mrs Asters pet horse

Making merry music with the one that I love

We're a perfect duet

Gee how lucky can you

Wee how lucky can you

Wow how lucky can you get

[Ain't she got fun

She's the luck the luck the luck the luck the luck

The luck the luck the luck the luck the luck

The luck]

Satin on my shoulder

How lucky can you get

Money in my pocket

How lucky can you get

Every night's a party where the fun never ends

You can circle the globe with my circle of friends

Someone I am crazy for is crazy for me

I'm his personal pet

Wow how lucky can you get

Hei there gorgeous!

Big success!

What's your secret gorgeous!

Just lucky I guess

You wanna know what it's really like

FANTASTIC!

Satin on my shoulder and a smile on my lips

Money in my pocket right at my fingertips

Wrap it up and charge it that's my favourite phrase

How lucky

When I see the chauffeur think

I'll give him a raise

How lucky

Life's a bed of roses whirling perfume on me

You can spare me the blues

I don't sing in that key

And if there's a man who'd leave me

I am happy to say

I haven't run into him yet

Gee Wee Wow

How lucky, how lucky can you get!

Am I blue?

Am I blue

Am I blue

Ain't these tears in these eyes telling you

Am I blue

You'd be too

If each plan with your man

Done fell through

There was a time,

I was his only one

But now

I'm the sad and lonely one

Lonely

Was I gay

Till today

Now he's gone and we're through

Am I blue

There was a time,

I was his only one

But now

I'm the sad and lonely one

Oh lonely

Was I gay

Till today

Now he's gone and we're through

Now he's gone and we're through

Oh God, did you hear that note

It was given to me by my friend Grace Moore on my birthday

Oy, was she glad to get rid of it

Through

I think I give it to her back, or her front

Am I blue

Oy, is this thing heavy

Isn't this better

I loved the man

Truly I did

When he would touch me

I act like a love-hungry kid

Isn't this better

Somebody nice somebody new

Someone who lets me react

As I normally do

Isn't this better

Better

Passion is fine but passion burns fast

Passion's design seems never to last

Better a match

Better a blend

Who needs a lover

I need a friend

Now I am calm safe and serene

Heartache and hurt are no longer a part of the scene

Isn't this better

The way it should be

Better for him

And also much better for me

Isn't this better

Better

Passion is fine but passion burns fast

Passion's design seems never to last

Better a match

Better a blend

Who needs a lover

I need a friend

Now I am clam safe and serene

Heartache and hurt are no longer a part of the scene

Isn't this better

The way it should be

Better for him

Much better for him

And also much better for me

If I love again

I often wonder why he came to me

Brought such a flame to me

Then let it die

And if another love should find my heart

It will remind my heart of your goodbye

With every new love

Youíll come back to me

In other eyes

Itís you I see

If I love again

Though itís someone new

If I love again

It will still be you

In someone elseís firm embrace

I close my eyes but see your face

If I love again

Iíll find other charms

But Iíll make believe

You are in my arms

And though my lips whisper "I love you!"

My heart will not be true

Iíll be loving you

Every time I love again...

Let's hear it for me

Well I'll be damned

No I won't be damned

Because I have been damned

And I won't be damned anymore!

I walked out

He didn't walk out

It was me who walked out

It was me closing the door

Blow the bugle

Sound the cymbal

All my troubles fill a thimble

I'm as happy as it's legal to be

Come on kids let's hear it for me

Get the tom tom

Start the drumming

Queue the colours

Keep them humming

Cause I'm climbing of the limb of that tree

Come on kids let's hear it for me

For this overwhelming sensation

I could stand a standing ovation

Give my entrance queue to the band

Give the little lady a great big hand

Slide the trombone

Let it swell out

This performance is a sell out

And the critics and the public agree

I'm the number one attraction to see

So applaud it and cheer it

Come on now

Let's hear it for me

Standing in the wings

All prepared to start

Usually I'm tense

A pounding in my heart

But now I'm not afraid

'Cause butterflys are gone

My act is looking great

I can't wait to go on, on

Grab a ticket

Find you row kid

I am strictly an SRO kid

Tell these ougly boubly feelings I'm free

They been banished by a royal decree

And your head feels so good when you finally clear it

If I saw a worry I wouldn't go near it

Come on now

Come on kid

Llet's hear it

Let's hear it for me...
