My Melancholy Baby

Why do you grieve?

Try and believe

Life is always sunshine

When the heart beats true

Banish your fears

Smile through your tears

When you're sad

It makes me feel the same as you...

Come to me my melancholy baby

Cuddle up and don't be blue

All your fears are foolish fancy, maybe

You know, dear, that I'm in love with you;

Every cloud must have a silver lining

Wait until the sun shines through

Come on and smile, my honey dear,

While I kiss away each tear

Or else I shall be melancholy too...

Just In Time

Just in time

I found you just in time

Before you came my time was running low,

I was lost, the losing dice were tossed

My bridges all were crossed,

Nowhere to go;

Now you're here

And now I know just where I'm going

No more doubt or fear

I've found my way

For love came just in time

I've found you just in time

And changed my lonely life that lucky day.

 

Music by Jule Styne Lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green

Taking A Chance On Love

Here I go again

I hear those trumpets blow again

All aglow again

Taking a chance on love

Here I come again

Iím gonna make things hum again

Acting dumb again

Taking a chance on love

I walk around with a horseshoe

In clover I lie

And brother rabbit of course you

Better kiss your feet good-bye

I'll hang ball again I'm riding for a fall again

I'm gonna give my all again

Taking a chance on love

Bewitched (Bothered And Bewildered)

I'm wild again,

Beguiled again

A simpering,

Whimpering child again

Bewitched, bothered and bewildered

Am I...

Could not sleep,

Would not sleep

Till love came and told me

I should not sleep

Bothered and bewildered am I...

Lost my heart, so what of it?

He was cold, I agree,

He can laugh and I love it

Although the laugh's on me;

I'll sing to him,

Each spring to him

And long for the day when I'll cling to him,

Bewitched, bothered so bewildered am I...

Never Will I Marry

Never, never will I marry

Never, never will I wed

Born to wander solitary

Wide my world narrow my bed

Never, never, never will I marry

Born to wander till I'm dead

No burdens

To bear,

No conscious, no care

No memories to mourn,

No turning on

For I was born to wander solitary

Wide my world narrow my bed

Never, never, never, never will I marry

Born to wander till I'm dead.

As Time Goes By

You must remember this

A kiss is still a kiss

A sigh is still a sigh

The fundamental things apply

As time goes by

And when two lovers woo

They still say "I love you"

On that you can rely

No matter what the future brings

Time goes by

Moonlight and love songs

Never out of date

Hearts full of passion,

Jealousy and hate

Woman needs man,

And man must have his mate

That no one can deny

It's still the same old story

A fight for love and glory

A case of do or die

The world will always welcome lovers

As time goes by

Moonlight and love songs

Never out of date

Hearts full of passion,

Jealousy and hate

Woman needs man,

And man must have his mate

Oh, no one can deny

It's still the same old story

A fight for love and glory

A case of do or die

The world will always welcome lovers

'Cause time goes by...

Draw Me A Circle

Draw me a circle that's perfectly round

One curving line,

Simple and fine

Now add two ears, and a lopsided nose,

And if you care,

Add some hair

Now draw two eyes

And make them bright

Because they've just seen a beautiful sight

Sketch in a mouth with a radiant grin

One coming deep from within

You've drawn me a circle

And now that you're through,

It's a picture of me

After being with you...

It Had To Be You

Seems like dreams like I always had

Could be, should be making me glad

Why am I blue?

It's up to you to explain

I'm thinking maybe, baby,

I'll go away

Someday, some way,

You'll come and say

It's you I need

And you'll be pleading in vain

It had to be you,

Had to be you

I wondered around,

Finally found somebody who

Could make me be true,

Could make me be blue

And even be glad just to be sad

Thinking of you

Some others I've seen

Might never be mean,

Might never be cross

I tried to be boss,

But they wouldn't do

'Cause nobody else gave ma a thrill

With all your faults

I love you still

Had to be you,

Crazy old you,

Had to be you.

Make Believe

We could make believe

I love you

Only make believe

That you love me

Others find

Peace of mind

In pretending

Couldn't you?

Couldn't I?

Couldn't we?

Make believe our lips

Are blending

In a phantom kiss,

Or two, or three

Might as well make believe

I love you

For to tell the truth

I only tell the truth

This time

I'll tell the truth

I do!

I Had Myself A True Love

I had myself a true love

A true love who was something to see

I had myself a true love

At least that's what I kept on telling me

The first thing in the morning

I still try to think of a way to be with him

Some part of the evening

And that's the way I live through the day

I had myself a true love,

But now he's gone

And left me for good

The Lord knows

I don't hear those back yard

Whispers going round the neighborhood

There maybe a lot of things I miss

A lot of things I don't know

But I do know this,

Now I ain't got no love

And once upon a time

I had a true love

In the evening,

In the doorway

While I stand there and wait for his coming

With the house swept

And the clothes hung

And a pot on the stove where I had meal

Where is he while I waste the rising newel?

Where is he?

Why'd he gone so soon?

Now there ain't no way that it used to be,

What now?

And everybody keeps telling me

There are may be a lot of things I miss

A lot of things I don't know

But I do know this now...

I ain't got no love

And once upon a time

I had a true love.
