Under a blanket of blue



Under a blanket of blue
Just you and I beneath the stars
Wrapped in the arms of sweet romance
The night is ours, yes
Under a blanket of blue
Let me be thrilled by all your charms
Darling, I know my heart will dance
Within your arms, yes
A summer night is magic
Enthralling me so
The night would be tragic
If you weren't here to share it, my dear
Covered with heaven above
Let's dream a dream of love for two
Wrapped in the arms of sweet romance
Under a blanket of blue, yes
Under a blanket of blue
Just you and I beneath the stars
Wrapped in the arms of sweet romance
The night is ours
Under a blanket of blue
Let me be thrilled by all your charms
Darling, I know my heart will dance
Within your arms
A summer night's magic
Enthralling me so
The night would be tragic
If you weren't here to share it, my dear
Covered with heaven above
Let's dream a dream of love for two
Wrapped in the arms of sweet romance
Under a blanket of blue
A summer night's magic (Oh yes)
Enthralling me so (Oh yes)
The night would be tragic
If you weren't here to share it, my dear
Covered with heaven above (Oh yes)
Let's dream a dream of love for two
Wrapped in the arms of sweet romance
Under a blanket of blue (Oh yes)
Under (Yes) a blanket of blue

You Can Depend on Me



Though you say we're through, I'll always love you
And you can depend on me
Though someone you've met has made you forget
You know you can count on me
 
I wish you success, loads of happiness
But I must confess, I'll be lonely
If you need a friend, I'm yours to the end
And you can depend on me
 
I wish you success, loads of happiness
But I must confess, I'll be lonely
If you need a friend, I'm yours to the end
And you can depend on me
You can depend on me

That Certain Feeling



That certain feeling
The first time I met you
I hit the ceiling
I could not forget you
You were completely sweet
Oh, what could I do?
I wanted phrases
To sing his praises
That certain feeling
The one that they all love
No use concealing
I've got what they call love
Now we're together
Let's find out whether
You're feeling that feeling too
I felt it happen
Just as you came in view
Grew sort of dizzy
Thought gee, who is he?
That certain feeling
I'm here to confess it
Is so appealing
No words can express it
I can not hide it
I must confide it
I'm feeling
That feeling
Too

I Cried For You



I remember other days how I used to weep
Over things you said to me
13/01/2021

Isn't It a Pity?



Why did I wander
Here and there and yonder
Wasting precious time
For no reason or rhyme
Isn't it a pity
Isn't it a crime
My journeys ended
Everything is splendid
Meeting you today
Has given me a wonderful idea
Here I stay
It's a funny thing
I look at you
I get a thrill
I never knew
Isn't it a pity
We never met before?
Here we are at last
It's like a dream
The two of us
A perfect team
Isn't it a pity
We never met before?
Imagine all the lonely years you wasted
Fishing for salmon
Losing at backgammon
What joys un-tasted
My nights were sour
Spent with Schopenhauer
Let's forget the past
Let's both agree
That I'm for you
And you're for me
And it's such a pity
We never, never met before
It's an awful pity
We never, never met before

It's All Right with Me



It's the wrong time, and the wrong place
Though your face is charming, it's the wrong face
It's not her face, but such a charming face
That it's all right with me
 
It's the wrong song, in the wrong style
Though your smile is lovely, it's the wrong smile
It's not her smile, but such a lovely smile
That it's all right with me
 
You can't know how happy I am that we met
I'm strangely attracted to you
There's someone I'm trying so hard to forget
Don't you want to forget someone, too?
 
It's the wrong game, with the wrong chips
Though your lips are tempting, they're the wrong lips
They're not her lips, but they're such tempting lips
That, if some night, you are free
Then it's all right, yes, it's all right with me

Don't You Think I Ought to Know



What they're saying, is it true
That your love is burning low?
If you've found somebody new,
Don't you think I ought to know?
Dining at the club alone,
I can feel the people stare

For You, for Me, for Evermore



Paradise can not refuse us
Never such a happy pair
Everybody must excuse us
If we walk on air
All the shadows now will lose us
Lucky stars are everywhere
As a happy being
Here's what I'm foreseeing
For you, for me, forever more
It's bound to be forever more
It's plain to see
We found, by finding each other
The love we waited for
I'm yours, you're mine
And in our hearts
The happy ending starts
What a lovely world
This world will be
With a world of love in store
For you, for me, forever more.
What a lovely world
This world will be
With a world of love in store
For you, for me, forever more.

A Little Bit Later On



A little bit later on
A little bit later on
Just wait and you'll see
How lonely you'll be
A little bit later on
Just wait till you start missin'
My huggin' and my kissin'
Now, baby, better listen
You'll be cryin', boo, hoo, hoo
A little bit later on
You're gonna wake up some day
And open your eyes
To a great big surprise, baby
Don't forget it
You'll regret it
After I'm gone
You'd better think twice
It won't be so nice
A little bit later on
Oh, a little bit later on
Say you're gonna wake up some day
And open your eyes
To a great big surprise, my baby
Don't forget it
You'll regret it
After I'm gone
You'd better think twice
It won't be so nice
A little bit later on

Summertime



Ella:
Summertime and the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high
Your daddy's rich and your ma is good lookin'
So hush, little baby, don't you cry
 
Louis:
One of these mornin's, you're gonna rise up singin'
You're gonna spread your wings and you'll take to the sky
But 'til that mornin', there is nothin' can harm you
With Daddy and Mummy, standing by
Don't you, don't you cry
 
Ella & Louis:
Summertime and the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high
Your daddy's rich and your ma is good lookin'
So hush, little baby, don't you cry

Sunny



Sunny, yesterday my life was filled with rain.
Sunny, you smiled at me and really eased the pain.
The dark days are gone, and the bright days are here,
My sunny one shines so sincere.
Sunny one so true, I love you.
 
Sunny, thank you for the sunshine bouquet.
Sunny, thank you for the love you brought my way.
You gave to me your all and all.
Now I feel ten feet tall.
Sunny one so true, I love you.
 
Sunny, thank you for the truth you let me see.
Sunny, thank you for the facts from a to c.
My life was torn like a windblown sand,
And the rock was formed when you held my hand.
Sunny one so true, I love you.
 
Sunny
Sunny, thank you for the smile upon your face.
Sunny, thank you for the gleam that shows its grace.
You're my spark of nature's fire,
You're my sweet complete desire.
Sunny one so true, I love you.
 
Sunny, yesterday my life was filled with rain.
Sunny, you smiled at me and really eased the pain.
The dark days are gone, and the bright days are here,
My sunny one shines so sincere.
Sunny one so true, I love you.
 
I love you.
I love you.
I love you.
I love you.
I love you.
I love you.

Savoy truffle



Lyrics
Creme tangerine and montelimar
A ginger sling with a pineapple heart
A coffee dessert, yes you know it's good news
But you'll have to have them all pulled out
After the Savoy truffle
Cool cherry cream, a nice apple tart
I feel your taste all the time we're apart
Coconut fudge, really blows down those blues
But you'll have to have them all pulled out
After the Savoy truffle
You might not feel it now
But when the pain cuts through
You're going to know, and how
The sweat is going to fill your head
When it becomes too much
You shout aloud
You'll have to have them all pulled out
After the Savoy truffle
You know that what you eat you are,
But what is sweet now, turns so sour
We all know Obla-Di-Bla-Da
But can you show me, where you are?
Creme tangerine and montelimar
A ginger sling with a pineapple heart
A coffee dessert, yes you know it's good news
But you'll have to have them all pulled out
After the Savoy truffle
Yes you'll have to have them all pulled out
After the Savoy truffle

Lullaby of the Leaves

Rustling of the leaves used to be my lullaby
In the sunny South when I was a tot so high
And now that I have grown
And myself alone
 
Cradle me where Southern skies
Can watch me with a million eyes
Sing me to sleep
Lullaby of the leaves
 
Cover me with Heaven's blue
And let me dream a dream or two
Sing me to sleep
Lullaby of the leaves
 
I'm breezing along, along with the breeze
I'm hearing a song, a song through the trees
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
That fine melody caressing the shore
Familiar to me, I've heard it before
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, that's Southland
 
Don't I feel it in my soul
And don't I know I've reached my goal
Sing me to sleep
Lullaby of the leaves

Easy to Love

I know too well that I'm just wasting precious time
In thinking such a thing could be
That you could ever care for me
 
I'm sure you hate to hear
That I adore you, dear
But grant me
Just the same
I'm not entirely to blame
For love
 
You'd be so easy to love
So easy to idolize
All others above
So worth the yearning for
So swell to keep every home fire burning for
 
We'd be so grand at the game
So carefree together
That it does seem a shame
That you can't see
Your future with me
Cause you'd be oh, so easy to love

Cheek to Cheek

[LOUIS ARMSTRONG SINGS]
 
Heaven, I'm in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek
 
It's heaven, I'm in heaven
And the cares that hung around me through the week
Seems to vanish like a gambler's lucky streak
When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek
 
Oh, I'd love to climb a mountain
And reach the highest peak
But it doesn't thrill me half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek
 
Oh, I'd love to go out fishing
In a river or a creek
But I don't enjoy it half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek
 
Now Mamma, dance with me
I want my arms about you
The charms about you
Will carry me through
 
It's heaven, I'm in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek
 
[ELLA FITZGERALD SINGS]
 
Heaven, I'm in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek
 
Heaven, I'm in heaven
And the cares that hung around me through the week
Seem to vanish like a gambler's lucky streak
When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek
 
Oh, I'd love to climb a mountain
And to reach the highest peak
But it doesn't thrill me half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek
 
Oh, I'd love to go out fishing
In a river or a creek
But I don't enjoy it half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek
 
Dance with me
I want my arm about you
The charm about you
Will carry me through to heaven
 
I'm in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek
 
[DUET]
 
Yes, dance with me
I want my arms about you
The charms about you
Will carry me through to heaven
 
I'm in heaven, I'm in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek
 
Cheek to cheek
Cheek to cheek
Cheek to cheek

It Ain't Necessarily So

It ain't necessarily so.
It ain't necessarily so.
The things that you're liable
to read in the Bible,
it ain't necessarily so.
 
David was small but, oh my.
David was small but, oh my.
He shot Goliath
who lay down and dieth.
Little David was small but, oh my.
 
Jonah, he lived in a whale.
Oh Jonah, he lived in a whale.
But he made his home in that fish's abdomen,
oh, Jonah lived in a whale.
 
Little Moses was found in a stream.
Little Moses was found in a stream.
He floated on water till old Pharaoh's daughter
she fished him, she says, from that stream.
 
It ain't necessarily so.
It ain't necessarily so.
They tell all your children
the devil he's a villain,
but t'ain't necessarily so.
 
To get into heaven don't snap for a seven
live clean, don't have no fault.
Oh, I take that gospel, whenever it's possible,
but with a grain of salt.
 
Methuselah lived nine hundred years.
Methuselah lived nine hundred years.
But who called that livin' when no gal will give in
to no man, what's nine hundred years?
 
Now I'm preachin' this sermon to show
it ain't necessarily, ain't necessarily,
ain't necessarily so.

I'm Thru With Love

- Introduction -.
 
I'm thru with love,
I'll never fall again.
Said I do to love,
Don't ever call again.
For I must have you
Or no one.
And so I'm thru with love.
 
I've locked my heart.
I keep my feelings there.
I have stopped my heart
With icy frigid air.
And I need to care for no one.
Because I'm thru with love.
 
Why did you lead me
To think you could care.
You didn't need me,
For you have your share.
Of slaves around you
To hound you and swear.
With deep emotion,
Devotion to you.
 
Goodbye your spring
And all it meant to me
It can never bring
The things that used to be.
For I must have you or no one.
And so I'm thru with love.
 
Why did you lead me
To think you could care.
You didn't need me,
For you have your share.
Of slaves around you
To hound you and swear
With deep emotion,
Devotion to you.
 
Goodbye your spring
And all it meant to me
It can never bring
The things that used to be.
For I must have you or no one.
And so I'm thru with love.
 
Thru with love

There's a Lull in My Life

Oh, there's a lull in my life
It's just a void, an empty space
When you are not in my embrace
 
Oh, there's a lull in my life
The moment that you go away
There is no night, there is no day
 
The world stops turning, the clock stops ticking
Everything stops but that flame in my heart
That keeps burning, burning
 
Oh, there's a lull in my life
No matter how I may pretend
I know that you alone can end
The ache in my heart, the call of my arms
 
I know that you alone can end
The ache in my heart, the call of my arms
And the lull, lull in my life

It's Only a Paper Moon

It is only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believed in me
 
Yes, it's only a canvas sky
Hangin' over a muslin tree
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believed in me
 
Without your love
It's a honky tonk parade
Without your love
It's a melody played in a penny arcade
 
It's a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believed in me
 
Without your love
It's a honky tonk parade
Without your love
It's a melody played in a penny arcade
 
It's a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believed in me

The Girl From Ipanema

Tall and tan and young and handsome
The boy from Ipanema goes walking
And when he passes
Each girl he passes goes... Ahh
 
When he walks he's like a samba
That swings so cool and sways so gentle
That when he passes each girl
He passes goes... Ahh
 
Oh, but I watch him so sadly
How can I tell him I love him?
Yes, I would give my heart gladly
But each day when he walks to the sea
He looks straight ahead, not at me
 
Tall and tan and young and handsome
The boy from Ipanema goes walking
And when he passes
I smile, but he doesn't see me
No, he doesn't see me
 
Tall and tan and young and handsome
The boy from Ipanema, he goes walking
And when he passes by
I smile, but he doesn't see me
No, he doesn't see me
No, he doesn't see me
No, no, no, he doesn't see me
No, no, no, he doesn't see me
No, no, no, he doesn't see me

Somewhere In The Hills (Favela)

His eyes couldn't laugh, I made them laugh
His arms, a world of thrills.
The moon looked down and smiled
On a summer love to see it blossoming
Somewhere in the hills.
 
The breeze was cool, his kiss was fire
The night birds sang their trills.
And when the moon was gone,
Hidden by the clouds,
I put the fire out
Somewhere in the hills.
 
But I love just for the moment,
I've no time for regret,
I make dreams for tomorrow,
Dreams I know I'll forget.
 
New day, new dawn, and I have gone,
In search of other thrills.
The moon looks down and sighs,
For those laughing eyes are crying silently
Somewhere in the hills.
 
His eyes couldn't laugh, I made them laugh
His arms, a world of thrills.
The moon looked down and smiled
On a summer love to see it blossoming
Somewhere in the hills.
 
The breeze was cool, his kiss was fire
The night birds sang their trills.
And when the moon was gone,
Hidden by the clouds,
I put the fire out
Somewhere in the hills.
 
But I love just for the moment,
I've no time for regret,
I make dreams for tomorrow,
Dreams I know I'll forget.
 
New day, new dawn, and I have gone,
In search of other thrills.
The moon looks down and sighs,
For those laughing eyes are crying silently
Somewhere in the hills.
 
His eyes couldn't laugh, I made them laugh
His arms, a world of thrills.
The moon looked down and smiled
On a summer love to see it blossoming
Somewhere in the hills.
 
The breeze was cool, his kiss was fire
The night birds sang their trills.
And when the moon was gone,
Hidden by the clouds,
I put the fire out
Somewhere in the hills.
 
But I love just for the moment,
I've no time for regret,
I make dreams for tomorrow,
Dreams I know I'll forget.
 
New day, new dawn, and I have gone,
In search of other thrills.
The moon looks down and sighs,
For those laughing eyes are crying silently
Somewhere in the hills.
 
For those laughing eyes are crying silently
Somewhere in the hills.
For those laughing eyes are crying silently
Somewhere in the hills.

Off Key (Desafinado)

If you say my singing is
Off key, my love
You will hurt my feelings,
Don't you see, my love?
I wish I had an ear like yours,
A voice that would behave
All I have is feeling
And the voice god gave
 
You insist my music
Goes against the rules
Yes, but rules were never made
For lovesick fools
I wrote this little song for you,
But you don't care.
It's a crooked song,
Ah, but, all my heart is there
 
The thing that you would see,
If you would play your part
Is even if I'm out of tune,
I have a gentle heart
I took your picture
With my trusty Rolle flex
And now all I have developed
Is a complex
 
Possibly in vain,
I hope you'll weaken, oh my love
And forget those rigid rules
That undermine my dream
Of a life of love and music
With someone who'll understand
That even though I may be out of tune,
When I attempt to say how much I love you
All that matters is the message
That I bring which is:
My dear, one, I love you

Dreamer

Why are my eyes always
Full of this vision of you?
Why do I dream silly dreams
That I fear won't come true?
I long to show you the stars,
Caught in the dark of the sea.
I long to speak of my love,
But you don't come to me.
 
So I go on asking
If maybe one day you'll care.
I tell my sad little dreams
To the soft evening air.
I am quite hopeless, it seems.
Two things I know how to do:
One is to dream,
Two is loving you.
 
Why are my eyes always
Full of this vision of you?
Why do I dream silly dreams
That I fear won't come true?

But you don't come to me.
 
So I go on asking
If maybe one day you'll care.

Isn't It A Lovely Day

The weather is frightening.
The thunder and lightning
Seem to be having their way.
But as far as I'm concerned,
it's a lovely day.
The turn in the weather
Will keep us together
So I can honestly say,
That as far as I'm concerned,
it's a lovely day
And everything's okay.
 
Isn't this a lovely day
to be caught in the rain.
You were going on your way,
now you've got to remain.
 
Just as you were going,
leaving me all at sea,
The clouds broke, they broke
and oh what a break for me.
 
I can see the sun up high,
though we're caught in a storm.
I can see where you and I
could be cozy and warm.
 
Let the rain pitter patter
But it really doesn't matter
If the skies are gray.
Long as I can be with you,
it's a lovely day.

It's A Lovely Day Today

It's a lovely day today
So whatever you've got to do
You've got a lovely day to do it in, that's true
 
And I hope whatever you've got to do
Is something that can be done by two
For I'd really like to stay
 
It's a lovely day today
And whatever you've got to do
I'd be so happy to be doing it with you
 
But if you've got something that must be done
And it can only be done by one
There is nothing more to say
Except it's a lovely day for saying
It's a lovely day

Lullaby Of Birdland

Oh, lullaby by birdland that's what I Always hear, when you sigh, never in my wordland could there be words to reveal in a phrase how I feel Have you ever heard two turtle doves Bill and coo, when they love? That's the kind of magic music we made with our lips When we kiss And there's a weepy old willow He really knows how to cry That's how I'd cry in my pillow If you should tell me farewell and goodbye Lullaby by birdland whisper low Kiss me sweet, and we'll go Flying high in birdland, high in the sky up above All because we're in love Lullaby, Lullaby Have you ever heard two turtle doves Bill and coo when they love? That's the kind of magic music we made with our lips When we kiss And there's a weepy old willow He really knows how to cry That's how I'd cry in my pillow If you should tell me farewell and goodbye Lullaby by birdland whisper low Kiss me sweet, and we'll go Flying high in birdland, high in the sky up above All because we're in love

Love For Sale

Verse: When the only sound in the empty street Is the heavy tread of the heavy feet That belongs to a lonesome cop I open shop When the moon so long has been gazing down On the wayward ways of the wayward town That her smile becomes a smirk I go to work. Refrain: Love for sale Appetizing young love for sale Love that's fresh and still unspoiled Love that's only slightly soiled Love for sale Who will buy Who would like to sample my supply Who's prepared to pay the price For a trip to paradise Love for sale Let the poets pipe of live in their childish way I know every type of love better far than they If you want the thrill of love I've been through the mill of love Old love, new love Every love but ... true love Love for sale Appetizing young love for sale If you want to buy my wares Follow me and climb the stairs Love for sale Love for sale Love for sale!

Night & Day

Like the beat, beat, beat of the tom-tom
When the jungle shadows fall
Like the tick, tick, tock of the stately clock
As it stands against the wall

Like the drip, drip, drip of the raindrops
When the summer shower is through
So a voice within me keeps repeating you, you, you

Night and day, you are the one
Only you beneath the moon or under the sun
Whether near to me or far
It's no matter, darling, where you are
I think of you

Night and day, day and night, why is it so
That this longing for you follows wherever I go?
In the roaring traffic's boom
In the silence of my lonely room

I think of you
Night and day, night and day
Under the hide of me
There's an, oh, such a hungry yearning burning inside of me

And its torment won't be through
'Till you let me spend my life making love to you
Day and night, night and day

Night and day
Under the hide of me
There's an, oh, such a hungry yearning burning inside of me
And its torment won't be through
'Till you let me spend my life making love to you
Day and night, night and day

That Lady is a Tramp

I've wined and dined on Mulligan Stew, and never wished for Turkey
As I hitched and hiked and grifted too, from Maine to Albuquerque
Alas, I missed the Beaux Arts Ball, and what is twice as sad
I was never at a party where they honored Noel Ca-ad (Coward)
But social circles spin too fast for me
My 'hobohemia' is the place to be

I get too hungry, for dinner at eight
I like the theater, but never come late
I never bother, with people I hate
That's why the lady is a tramp

I don't like crap games, with barons and earls
Won't go to Harlem, in ermine and pearls
Won't dish the dirt, with the rest of the girls
That's why the lady is a tramp

I like the free, fresh wind in her hair
Life without care
I'm broke, it's OK
Hate California, it's cold and it's damp
That's why the lady is a tramp

I go to Coney, the beach is divine
I go to ballgames, the bleachers are fine
I follow Winchell, and read every line
That's why the lady is a tramp

I like a prizefight, that isn't a fake
I love the rowing, on Central Park lake
I go to Opera and stay wide awake
That's why the lady is a tramp

I like the green grass under my shoes
What can I lose, I'm flat, that's that
I'm alone when I lower my lamp
That's why the lady is a tramp

There'll Always Be Another Spring

There'll always be another spring
When winter's a forgotten thing
The sleepy trees will all be waking
And they'll be shaking their blossoms down.

There'll always be another spring
A time when lonely hearts take wing
There'll always be a bed of crocus
That we will notice in town.

And so in life
A tear today may be a smile tomorrow,
How can we know
The joy of life unless we know the sorrow.

For Mother Nature has a way
Of chasing all the clouds of gray
And Father Time will still assist
A miss or a mister to have their fling,
For there'll always be another spring.

What Will I Tell My Heart?

I'll try to explain to friends, dear
The reason we two are apart,
I know what to tell our friends, dear,
But what will I tell my heart?

It's easy to say to strangers
That we played a game from the start.
It's easy to lie to strangers,
But what will I tell my heart?

When I smile to hide all the tears inside
What an ache it would bring.
Then I'd wander home to a telephone
That forgot how to ring.

I could say you'll soon be back, dear,
To fool the whole town may be smart,
I'll tell them you'll soon be back, dear,
But what will I tell my heart?

The Folks Who Live On the Hill

Someday we'll build a home
On a hilltop high, you and I,
Shiny and new, a cottage that two can fill.
And we'll be pleased to be called
'The folks who live on the hill.'

Someday we may be adding
A thing or two, a wing or two.
We will make changes as any family will.
But we will always be called
'The folks who live on the hill.'

Our veranda will command a view of meadows green,
The sort of view that seems to want to be seen.

And when the kids grow up and leave us,
We'll sit and look at the same old view, just we two.
Darby and Joan who, used to be Jack and Jill,
The folks who like to be called
What they have always been called,
'The folks who live on the hill.'
