Absent minded me

Absent minded me

Absent minded me

I'm losing a key

Or missing a glove

Just like me to lose my love

Gotta find it, absent minded me

Dizzy dopey me

Mixed-up mopey me

I'm way, way ahead

Of the game then it starts

How did I lose my king of hearts?

Gotta find it, absent minded me

There's my key

Gee, I left it in the door

There's my glove on the shelf

Now if I don't find my love

I'll be losing myself

Gotta find him

Gotta find him

Absent minded me

Absent minded me...

 

Written by B.Merril & J.Styne

When in Rome (I do as the Romans do)

When on foreign shores I am

Very truly yours I am

But if inclined to play I am

Sweetheart, that's the way I am....

When in Spain for reasons I don't explain

I remain enjoying a brew

Don't deplore my fondness for fundador

You know how a fundador can lead to a few

And baby when in Rome

I do as the Romans do

If per chance I'm saying farewell to France

And romance drops in from the blue

Cherchez l'amour

I beg of you please endure

My taking a brief detour with somebody new

It's just that when in Rome

I do as the Romans do

And though from Italy I lied to you prettily

Oh don't think of me bitterly

But know that I'm true

Except now and then in Rome,

I get that old yearn in Rome

And naturally when in Rome

I do as the Romans do

molto difficile resistere agli uominid ' Italia

Per esempio, per esempio i biondi,

I biondi di Firenze, di Venezia

E i bruni di Palermo, di Milano...

You know what I mean?

If I write happily

Best wishes from Napoli

Don't cable me snappily

To tell me we're through

Cause I'm once again in Rome

In somebody's den in Rome

Well honey, but when in Rome

I do as the Romans do

So just disregard the signs and the omens

When in Rome I do as the Romans do...

Veni, vidi, vinsi!

 

Written by C.Leigh & C.Coleman

Fine and dandy

Please forgive this platitude

But I like your attitude

You are just the kind I've had in mind

And never could find

Honey, I'm so keen on you

I could come to lean on you

On a random bay

Give you your way

Do what you say

Gee, it's all fine and dandy

Sugar candy,

When I've got you

Then I only see the sunny side

Even trouble has its funny side

When you're gone, my sugar candy

I get so lonesome,

I get so blue

But when you're handy

It's fine and dandy

But when you're gone

What can I do?

 

Written by K.Swift & P.James, 1964

Supper time

Supper time

I should set the table

'Cause it's supper time

Somehow I'm not able

'Cause that man of mine

Ain't coming home no more

Oh, supper time

Kids will soon be yelling

For this supper time

While I keep from telling

That that man of mine

Ain't coming home no more

While I keep explaining

When they ask me where he's gone

While I keep from crying

When I bring the supper on

How can I remind them

To pray at their humble board

How can I be thankful

When they start to thank the Lord,

Oh, Lord!

Supper time, I should set the table

'Cause it's supper time

Somehow I'm not able

'Cause that man of mine

Ain't coming home no more

Ain't coming home no more...

 

Written by I.Berlin, 1964

Will he like me?

Will he like me when we meet?

Will the shy and quiet girl he's going to see

Be the girl the he's imagined me to be?

Will he like me?

Will he like the girl he sees?

If he doesn't, will he know enough to know?

That there's more of me than I may always show,

Will he like me?

Will he know that there's a world of love

Waiting to warm him?

How I'm hoping that his eyes and ears

Won't misinform him

Will he like me, who can say?

Oh, this evening seems a million years away

It's insanity to worry so all day

I'll try not to

Will he like me?

He's just got to

Will he like me?

He's just got to

How does the wine taste?

How does the wine taste?

Does it stain your lips?

What is the fruit-like?

Just beyond my finger tips?

Just out of reach

I see so much I cannot taste and mustn't touch

Tied to my little world

My safe little world

What would it be like

If I broke the string?

Would it be lovely

And a little frightening?

There is so much

I've never understood

How does the wine taste?

Is it good?

How does the wine taste?

Does it make you glow?

How does the wine taste?

How does the wine taste?

How does the wine taste?

I think you know!

Ooom...

 

Written by M.Dubey &H.Karr, 1964

I'm all smiles

I'm all smiles, darling

You'd be too

If you knew, darling

All of the smiles were for you

I'm all chills, darling

Through and through

But my cold hands, darling

Warm to the touch of you

Rain hasn't fallen for days now

But rainbows are filling the skies

My heart must have painted those rainbows

Shining before my eyes

Can't you tell that I'm in love, darling?

Deep and true, with guess who, darling

Someone I die for

Beg steal or lie for

Eat humble pie for

Someone to fly

To the sun, moon and sky for

Someone to live for

To love with and cry for

And that someone is you...

 

Written by M.Leonard & H.Martin, 1964

Autumn

Autumn, it feels like Autumn

Although the breeze is still

I feel the chill of Autumn

Oh, yes, it's Autumn

It's always Autumn

However green the hill

To me it still is Autumn

I can feel the frost now

That makes my Spring and Summer dreams

Seem lost now

Why can't the Autumn haze

Recall the days of warm summer laughter?

That faded soon after in the Autumn

He left in Autumn

And though another season's here

I feel the emptiness of Autumn

All the year...

 

Written by R.Maltby, Jr & D.Shire

My lord and master

He is pleased with me!

My Lord and Master

Declares that he's pleased with me-

What does he mean?

What does he know of me,

This lord and master?

When he has looked at me

What has he seen?

Something young

Soft and slim,

Painted cheek,

Tap'ring limb,

Smiling lips

All for him,

Eyes that shine

Just for him-

So he thinks...

Just for him!

Though the man may be

My Lord and Master,

Though he may study me

As hard as he can,

The smile beneath my smile

He'll never see

He'll never know I love another man

He'll never know I love another man.

 

Written by R. Rodgers & O. Hammerstein II

Love is a bore

Here is a verse unlike any verse

To a song that you've never heard

It deals with the subject that I and the authors agree

Is at best absurd

Love is a bore

Love is a ball game without a score

Love is a sail boat without a sail

The lock on the candy store

Asparagus without the hollandaise

Plus all the petty laughs

In Tennesse Williams' plays

I used to love it but now it's a drag

Love is a flag pole without a flag

Love is the mailman without the mail

A comic without a gag

A soap-opera plot and lots lots more

But mainly I mean love is a bore

It's I'll-call-you-tomorrow

It's a phone that never rings

It's a sack full of sorrow

Or a ride on angel's wings

So just remember the next time you saw

Love is an exit without a door

But if you're in love you'll ignore

All the things that I've said here before

And you'll pray that your love

Whatever he does

Will come back and be

The bore that he was

Before!

 

Written by S. Cahn & J. Van Hausen

I don't like goodbyes

It's not easy

It's never been easy

To let anyone

See the sentimental side of me

Hard as I try,

I can't help but show

It's my heart you're taking as you go

Don't like goodbyes, tears or sighs

I'm not too good at leaving time

I got no taste for grieving time

No, no, no, not me

You've been my near one

Ever my dear one

I never thought that you would find another love

A different kind

But it came to be

Now that your future is looking up

Forget the past and go fill your loving cup

But remember, remember leaving is fine

And the world overhead

Has a clear new shine

I won't be grieving now that you're leaving

It's traveling time and you must move on

Found someone that you can lean upon

And if I could arrange it

Oh, would I care to change it

Not me...

Not me...

 

Written by T. Capote & H. Arlen

People

People,

People who need people,

Are the luckiest people in the world.

We're children, needing other children,

And yet letting a grown-up pride,

Hide all the need inside,

Acting more like children than children.

Lovers

Are very special people,

They're the luckiest people in the world;

With one person, one very special person;

A feeling deep in your soul

Says you are half now you're whole,

No more hunger and thirst,

But first be a person who needs people,

People who need people...

Are the luckiest people in the world...

With one person, one very special person;

A feeling deep in your soul

Says you are half now you're whole,

No more hunger and thirst,

But first be a person who needs people,

People who need people...

Are the luckiest people in the world...
