He touched me

He touched me,

He put his hand near mine

And then he touched me

I felt a sudden tingle when he touched me

A sparkle, a glow

He knew it...

It wasnít accidental, no, he knew it

He smiled and seem to tell me so all through it

He knew it, I know...

Heís real, and the world is alive and shining

I feel such a wonderful drive t'wards valentining

He touched me,

I simply have to face the fact

He touched me...

Control myself and try to act

As if I remember my name

But he touched me...

He touched me...

And suddenly nothing is the same!

ĎCause he touched me...

He touched me...

And suddenly...

Nothing, nothing, nothing is the same!

The shadow of your smile

The shadow of your smile

When you are gone

Will color all my dreams

And light the dawn

Look into my eyes, my love, and see

All the lovely things you are to me

A wistful little star

Was far too high

A tear drop kissed your lips and so did I

Now when I remember spring

All the joy that love can bring

I will be remembering

The shadow of your smile

Now when I remember spring

All the love that joy can bring

I will be remembering

The shadow of your smile...

Quiet night

Quiet night

And all around the calm and boring weather

Quiet night

No other sound, but hearts that beat together

You can almost hear the things Iím thinking

You can almost see my heart take flight...

Whisper low

But donít say no

Itís such a quiet night!

I got plenty of nothin'

I got no lock on the door, that's the way to be

They can steal the rug from my floor

That's okay with me,

'Cause the things that I prize

Like the stars in the skies they're all free

Oh, I got plenty of nothin',

And nothin's plenty for me

I got no car, I got no mule, I got no misery!

The folks with plenty of plenty

They got a lock on their door

Afraid somebody is agoin' to rub'em

While they're out there makin' more

What for?

I got no lock on my door

That's the way to be

They can steal the rug from my floor

That's okay with me

'Cause the things that I prize

Like the stars in the skies, are all free

So, I got plenty of nothin',

And nothin's plenty for me

I got the sun, I got the moon, I got the deep blue sea

The folks with plenty of plenty

All they got to pray all the day

Seems with plenty, you sure got to worry

How to keep the devil away

Keep them away

Oh, I'm never afraid about hell, till my time arrives

Never worry, never worry, long as I'm well

Never one to strive to be good, to be bad

What the hell, I'm just glad I'm alive!

Oh, I got plenty of nothin',

And nothin's plenty for me

Got my man, got my love, and I...

I got my song!

How much of the dream comes true

There will be violins playing

Softly, somewhere, wonít there?

I shall be flying through rainbows

Though I canít fly, shanít I?

And when he lowers his lips

To kiss me, surely

The world will be lost from view

How much of the dream comes true?

Heíll be the prince

Out of every childhood story, surely

His arms could crush me

But he will hold me gently, wonít he?

And as the dawn slowly opens one eye,

Wonít I find life wonderful and new?

How much of the dream comes true?

How much of the dream comes true?

Second hand rose

Father has a business strictly second hand

Everything from toothpicks to a baby-grand

Stuff in our apartment came from fatherís store

Even clothes Iím wearing someone wore before

Itís no wonder that I feel abused

I never get a thing that ainít been used

Iím wearing second hand hats

Second hand clothes

Thatís why they call me

Second hand Rose

Even our piano in the parlor

Daddy bought for ten cents on the dollar

Second hand pearls

Iím wearing second hand curls

I never get a single thing thatís new

Even Jake, the plumber, heís a man I adore

He had the nerve to tell me heís been married before!

Everyone knows that Iím just

Second hand Rose

From second Avenue!

From Second Avenue!

The kind of man a woman needs

Handsome, no, my man ain't handsome

But thereís a trace of a wondrous grace

In his weary face

Life has done its best to break him

But his strength and courage make him

Just the kind of man a woman needs

Tender, he ainít always tender

But in his eyes something warm and wise

Lifts me to the skies

If his heart ain't always showing

Itís a comfort just to know him

He' s the kind of man a woman needs

Sometimes he'll grow angry

At some foolish things I do

Than heíll forgive to spare me pain

Times he'll know I'm troubled

So heíll laugh to cheer me through

Till my heart is light

As Summer rain...

mmm... youthful

No, my man ain't youthful

That timeís gone by

But his head is high

And his dreams won't die

Though heís had his share of sorrow

He looks forward to tomorrow

He's the kind of man a woman needs

He's the kind of man a woman needs...

All that I want

I want a gown of diamonds

Long gloves and sweet perfumes

Hats made of silks and satins

Seaqueens and ostrich plums

I want to wear mascara

Polish my nails real bright

I want to be an actress

Actresses play all night

If I should sneeze itís a sign

All that I want to will be mine

Oh please, pretty, please

Dear nose make me sneeze

I want to find my true love

Like all the love songs say

I want to do what I want

I want to get my way

Wild dreams grow wise

When sweet childhood flies

Time waved a hand

And the breeze blue the sand from my eyes

I want a gown of kingdom

Diamonds would weigh me down

Pompoms and plums are pretty

If youíre a circus clown

Funny how black mascara

Streaks when the tears begin

Nail polish, rouge and powder

Canít paint the sparkle in

Once I was slaved to a sneeze

Now sneezing is just a disease

A rose is a rose

And a nose just a nose

True loveís a phrase for love songs

Real loveís a leaving thing

I want the love worth living

I want the things I sing

I want the love worth living

I want the things I sing

Where's that rainbow?

Troubles really are bubbles they say

And I'm bubbling over today

Spring brings roses to people you see

But it brings hay fever to me

My luck will vary surely

That's purely a curse

My luck has changed,

Yes it's gotten from rotten to worse

Where's that rainbow you hear about

Where's that lining they cheer about

Where's that love nest where love is king ever after

Where's that blue room they sing about

Where's that sunshine they fling about

I know morning will come but pardon my laughter

In each scenario you can depend

On the end where the lovers agree

Where's that Lutherio

Where does he roam with his dome

That's as lean as can be

Oh, it is easy to see alright

Everything's gonna be alright

Be just dandy for everybody but me

In each scenario you can depend

On the end where the lovers agree

Where's that Lutherio

Where does he roam with his dome

That's as lean as can be

Oh, it is easy to see alright

Everything's gonna be alright

Be just dandy for everybody but me

Oh yeah, I see that rainbow

For everybody but me

 

Written by L.Hart & R.Rodgers

No more songs for me

No more soft tears blindly shed

No more soft words blithely said

No more the soft hope in time weíd wed

No more songs for me

Love was life though my heart pled

Love was fooled and my heart fed

Love was my water, my fire, my bread

No more songs for me

No more strong arms, warmly spread

No more strong wine warm and red

No more the strong one

Who warmed my bed

No more songs for me

No more songs for me.

Medley

I'm wearing second hand shoes

Second hand hose

All the girls hand me

Their second hand clothes

Even my pajamas when I darn 'em

Have somebody else's Initials on 'em

Second hand rings

Mmm... second hand things

I never get what other girlies do

Once while strolling

Through the Ritz a girl got my goat...

She nudged her friend

And said oh look there goes

My old fur coat

 

I don't believe in

Frettin' and grievin'

Why mess around with strife

I never was caught out

To step and strut out

Give me the simple life

Some find a pleasant dining on pheasants

Those things roll off my comb

Just serve me tomatoes

And mashed potatoes

Any place I hang my hat is home

 

Oh, I got plenty o' nothin'

And nothin's plenty for me

I got no car, I got no mule

I got no misery

Don't you see

I got no lock on my door

That's okay with me

'Cause the things that I prize

Like the stars in the skies are all free

I got plenty o' nothin'

And nothin's plenty for me

 

Once I built a railroad

Made it run,

Made it race against time

Once I built a railroad

Now it's done

Brother can you spare a dime?

Say don't you remember

They called me Al

It was Al all the time

Say don't you remember

I'm your pal

Buddy can you spare a dime?

 

Nobody knows you

When you're down and out

In your pocket's

Not one penny

And your friends

Well, you haven't any

Soon as you get on your feet again

Everybody

Everybody

Is your long lost friend

It's mighty strange

Without a doubt

But nobody knows you

When you're down and out

 

Oh every one knows

That I'm just second hand Rose

From Second Avenue

Ya can't beat the egg-creams

From Second Avenue

There is more between me

And Fifth Avenue

Than three blocks I tell ya

Second Avenue

 

The flowers in spring

The robins that sing

The sun beam that shines

They're yours, they're mine

And love can come to anyone

Because the best things in life are free
