ALWAYS

I'll be loving you always
With a love that's true always
When the things you plan
Need a helping hand
I will understand always always
Days may not be fair always
That's when I'll be there always
Not for just an hour
Not for just a day
Not for just a year but always
Days may not be fair always
That's when I'll be there always
Not for just an hour
Not for just a day
And not for just a year but always

ANY MOMENT NOW

Don't know where I'm at
Never lost my way like this before
How did I get here so near to Heaven's door
Never saw those stars
Never felt this strange new bliss before
Wonder what can be happening to me
Any moment now things will start
Something new stirs my heart
Any moment now chimes will ring
Trumpets blow angels sing
All you did was breathe my name hold my hand
Suddenly the world became wonderland
If it's love at last whats to do
But to share each moment with you

BE A GOOD SCOUT

Be a good scout
And always wear a smile
Be a good scout
Keep cheerful all the while
It's the creed yes indeed
That a scout must practice gaily
Help those in need
Do a good turn daily
Be a good scout
Be loyal clean and brave
Never say die
Just let your banners wave
On your honour do your best
When they put you to the test
And always be a good scout

BECAUSE

Because you come to me with nought save love
And hold mine hand and lift mine eyes above
A wider world of hope and joy I see
Because you come to me
Because you speak to me in accents sweet
I find the roses waking round my feet
And I am led through tears and joys to thee
Because you speak to me
Because God made thee mine I'll cherish thee
Through light and darkness through all time to be
And pray His love may make our love divine
Because God made thee mine

BEGIN THE BEGUINE

When they begin the beguine
It brings back the sound of music so tender
It brings back a night of tropical splendour
It brings back a memory evergreen
I'm with you once more under the stars
And down by the shore an orchestra's playing
And even the palms seem to be swaying
When they begin the beguine
To live it again is past all endeavour
Except when that tune clutches my heart
And there we are swearing to love forever
And promising never never to part
What moments divine what rapture serene
Till clouds came along to disperse the joys we had tasted
And now when I hear people curse the chance that was wasted
I know but too well what they mean
So don't let them begin the beguine
Let the love that was once a fire remain an ember
Let it sleep like the dead desire I only remember
When they begin the beguine
Oh yes let them begin the beguine, make them play
Till the stars that were there before return above you
Till you whisper to me once more
Darling I love you
And we suddenly know what heaven we're in
When they begin the beguine

BENEATH THE LIGHTS OF HOME

I can see the lights of home
Shining brightly over the foam
Beckon to me while I roam
Away from lights of home
I can see somebody there
Loving eyes and silver hair
I can see her kneel in prayer
Beneath the lights of home
In that little old sleepy town
Nothing happens when the sun goes down
Not a thing but moonbeams run around
In a starry dome
Turn the hands of time for me
Let me live my memory
Once again I long to be
Beneath the lights of home

THE BLUE DANUBE DREAM

Home of my dreams
Tomorrow I'll be
Where all of my dreams
Are waiting for me
I know all your charms
From story and song
And soon I will be
I will be in your arms
Where I belong
Every rock and rill
Every distant hill
Told me of you
How they love you
Every rippling stream
Seems to know the theme
Of the song they sing
Within the city of my dreams
A soldier passing by
And a maid with down cast eye
A word of sigh a glance
And you know you have found
The city of romance
Soft as the river that flows
Music fills the night
On and on forever it goes
Thrilling with delight
Down a shady lane
Couples walk to and fro
Whispering low I love you so
You will find in their song
The dream you've been dreaming so long
I will find in their song
The dream I've been dreaming so long
Still is the night that tiptoes away
The stars that are bright
Will fade with the day
But when I awake
The morning will say
Arise and rejoice
For it seems you are home
With all your dreams
Home of my dreams

CAN'T HELP SINGING

Hummingbird mockingbird listen to me
I got no nest I got no tree
Oh but I'm happy as Heaven is wide
I got a song bubbling inside
Can't help singing
Of a promise that April is bringing
I am floating along
On the crest of a song
There are bells in my heart
And they're ringing
Can't help crowing
Folks don't like it I know
But I'm glowing
I can't help what they say
Spring affects me this way
And I gotta keep singing all day

CHAPEL BELLS

There's a charm in the chapel bells
Like a dawn that is breaking
And it seems as the music swells
Lonely hearts are awaking
Chapel bells how I love the melody they bring
Chapel bells tell of youth and spring
Thru the years they have chimed their story of romance
Thru the years love has found its chance
Gone is every note of sadness
When their music fills the air
When they ring their song of gladness
Happy hearts are everywhere
Chapel bells how I pray some day
That there will be chapel bells
Ringing out for me

DANNY BOY

Oh Danny boy the pipes the pipes are calling
From glen to glen and down the mountain side
The summer's gone and all the roses falling
It's you it's you must go and I must bide
But come ye back when summer's in the meadow
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow
It's I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy oh Danny boy I love you so
But when ye come and all the flowers are dying
If I am dead as dead I well may be
Ye'll come and find the place where I am lying
And kneel and say an Avè there for me
And I shall hear though soft you tread above me
And all my grave will warmer sweeter be
For you will bend and tell me that you love me
And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me

GOODBYE

Goodbye forever goodbye forever
Goodbye goodbye goodbye
Hush a voice from the faraway
Listen and learn it seems to say
All the tomorrows shall be as today
All the tomorrows shall be as today
The cord is frayed the cruse is dry
The link must break and the lamp must die
Goodbye to hope goodbye goodbye
Goodbye to hope goodbye goodbye
Falling leaf and fading tree
Lines of white in a sullen sea
Shadows rising on you and me
Shadows rising on you and me
The swallows are making them ready to fly
Wheeling out on a windy sky
Goodbye to hope goodbye goodbye
Goodbye to hope goodbye goodbye
What are we waiting for all my heart
Kiss me straight on the brows and part again
Again my heart my heart
What are we waiting for you and I
A pleading look a stifled cry
Goodbye forever goodbye forever
Goodbye goodbye

A HEART THAT'S FREE

Not a thought not a care
With a heart debonaire
I am free as the sea
Like the lark who at dawn
Bids the darkness be gone
Do I sing merrily
With a laugh and a dance
Mine's a life to entrance
For I know naught but glee
And the word that I bring
And the theme that I sing
Is the song of a heart that's free
Ah then let music ring
While sweet voices sing
Echos repeating
Measures entreating
Song of a heart light and free
Laughing all the day
Chasing cares away
Hear my roundelay
Not a thought not a care
With a heart debonaire
I am free as the sea
Like the lark who at dawn
Bids the darkness be gone
Do I sing merrily
With a laugh and a dance
Mine's a life to entrance
For I know naught but glee
And the word that I bring
And the theme that I sing
Is the song of my heart that's free

HOME SWEET HOME

'Mid pleasures and palaces
Though we may roam
Be it ever so humble
There's no place like home
A charm from the skies
Seems to hallow us there
Which seek through the world
Is never met with elsewhere
Home home sweet sweet home
There's no place like home
There's no place like home
I gaze on the moon
As I tread the drear wild
And feel that my mother
Now thinks of her child
As she looks on that moon
From our own cottage door
Through the woodbine whose fragrance
Shall cheer me no more
Home home sweet sweet home
There's no place like home
There's no place like home
An exile from home,
Splendour dazzles in vain
Oh, give me my lowly
Thatched cottage again
The birds singing gaily
That came at my call
Give me them and that
Peace of mind, dearer than all
Home home sweet sweet home
There's no place like home
There's no place like home

I LOVE TO WHISTLE

I love to whistle cause it makes me merry
Makes me feel so very (Whistle)
I love to yodel everywhere I go
Yo-da-ley-ee Yo-da-ley-ee oh-lee-oh
Early to bed early to rise
Makes you healthy wealthy and wise
But I found out I know it's true
A whistle does much more for you
So I love to whistle
Troubles won't come near me
Specially when they hear me (Whistle)

INVITATION TO THE DANCE

My heart's debonair
There's love in the air
Life is carefree
Our waltz will invite
Bright midsummer night
Dreams of romance
So on with the dance
Night brings gay dreams
Gone are day dreams
While we dance
All the world becomes
A garden of romance and moonlight
On this June night
Love sends an invitation to the dance
At love's call
One and all are captured and enraptured
Love sends an invitation to the dance
Music playing
While we're swaying
Youth has a gay time
When life is May time
Then comes a day
When it fades away
These magic hours of moonlight
And flowers are flying on
They'll soon be gone
Now's a chance for sweet romance

I'LL TAKE YOU HOME AGAIN KATHLEEN

I'll take you home again Kathleen
Across the ocean wild and wide
To where your heart has ever been
Since first you were my bonnie bride
The roses all have left your cheek
I've watched them fade away and die
Your voice is sad whenever you speak
And tears bedim your loving eyes
Oh! I will take you back Kathleen
To where your heart will feel no pain
And when the fields are fresh and green
I'II take you to your home again
I know you love me Kathleen, dear
Your heart was ever fond and true
I always feel when you are near
That life holds nothing dear but you
The smiles that once you gave to me
I scarcely ever see them now
Though many many times I see
A dark'ning shadow on your brow
To that dear home beyond the sea
My Kathleen shall again return
And when thy old friends welcome thee
Thy loving heart will cease to yearn
Where laughs the little silver stream
Beside your mother's humble cot
And brightest rays of sunshine gleam
There all your grief will be forgot

IT'S DREAM TIME

It's dream time let's put our hearts together
It's dream time let's look ahead together
It's time for me time for you
To make all our dreaming come true
Close your eyes and drift away
Take a dreamy holiday
Let's forget the ticking of the clock
It's quite a thrill
We'll remember with a smile
How we spent a little while
Riding on a cloud around the block
When time stood still
It's dream time let's put our hearts together
It's dream time let's look ahead together
As people do folks like me folks like you
Those in love
Dream time we'll find our future in it
Dream time don't waste a precious minute
Time for me time for you
To make all this dreaming come true
It's dream time

IT'S FOOLISH BUT IT'S FUN

I love to climb an apple tree
Though apples green are bad for me
And I'll be sick as I can be
It's foolish but it's fun
While wise men figure time and space
And get all wrinkled in the face
I'm loafing in some shady place
It's foolish but it's fun
If it should ever come to pass
That I inherit wealth
I'll eat and drink and drink and eat
Until I wreck my health
I love to ramble over lea
And chase the busy bumble bee
Though the bee may light on me
It's foolish but it's fun
When thunder storms put folks to rout
And no one dares to venture out
That's when I love to slosh about
It's foolish but it's fun
I like to be on friendly terms
With pollywogs and mangle worms
And all the very deadly germs
It's foolish but it's fun
I love to sit beside a brook
And wait for fish to bite
And though they never do
It's nice to think perhaps they might
While others climb the mountains high
Beneath the tree I love to lie
And watch the snails go whizzing by
It's foolish but it's fun
I want to sing I want to waltz
My heart is doing somersaults
I love this world with all its faults
It's foolish but it's fun
I want to walk a garden wall
Especially a wall that's tall
And if I fall I fall that's all
It's foolish but it's fun
I want to climb a steeple
And I want to ring a bell
So I can tell the people
That I like them all so well
The grass is green the sky is blue
The cows go moo the cuckoos coo
I want to be a cuckoo too
It's cuckoo but it's fun

IT'S ONLY LOVE

It's only love and I lost out
Is that a thing to cry about
It's only love you kiss you part
So I'll forget but will my heart
One more dream warm and gay
One more dream gone astray
It's only love my love for you
And it will only last my whole life through
One more dream warm and gay
One more dream gone astray

IT'S RAINING SUNBEAMS

I need no signs I need no chart
The weather bureau in my heart
Is saying it's raining sunbeams
The world is young it's spring again
And I can laugh and sing again
For I know it's raining sunbeams
Now that there's a rainbow coloured sky on display
Each grey yesterday seems so far away
Those golden darts from Paradise
Are pouring down to break the ice
So write or phone make it known to everyone you love
It's raining sunny sunbeams from above

THE LAST ROSE OF SUMMER

'Tis the last rose of summer
Left blooming alone
All her lovely companions
Are faded and gone
No flower of her kindred
No rosebud is nigh
To reflect back her blushes
Or give sigh for sigh
I'll not leave thee thou lone one
To pine on the stern
Since the lovely are sleeping
Go sleep thou with them
Thus kindly I'll scatter
Thy leaves over the bed
Where thy mates of the garden
Lie scentless and dead
So soon may I follow
When friendships decay
And from love's shining circle
The gems drop away
When true hearts lie withered
And fond ones are flown
Oh who would inhabit
This bleak world alone

LOCH LOMOND

By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie braes
Where the sun shines bright on Loch Lomond
Where me and my true love were ever wont to gae
On the bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lomond
O ye'll take the high road and I'll take the low road
And I'll be in Scotland afore ye
But me and my true love will never meet again
On the bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lomond
'Twas there that we parted in yon shady glen
On the steep steep side of Ben Lomond
Where in deep purple hue the hieland hills we view
And the moon coming out in the gloaming
The wee birdies sing and the wild flowers spring
And in sunshine the waters are sleeping
But the broken heart it kens nae second spring again
Though the waeful may cease from their greeting

LOVE AT LAST

Love at last
Holds me fast
And won't let me free
Love at last
A part of me unsurpassed
The heart of me thrills at last
To love's rhapsody
I found my happiness supreme
And then you fanned the flame
And like the murmur of a dream
I heard you breathe my name
And there you stood
The same as I dreamed you would
A flame that I thought was past
My first love at last

LOVE IS ALL

Love is all love is all
It's the call of each heart
And a part of each dream
In this world dear
Love is all to desire
To enthral and admire
Who inspired every soul
Love is all
Winter comes with its storms
And its cares of the day
Then the spring brings the sun
Just to melt them away
Love is all love is all
On this earth to unfurl
For each boy and each girl
Love is all
Winter comes with its song
And its cares of the day
Then the spring brings the sun
Just to melt them away
Love is all love is all
On this earth to unfurl
For each boy and each girl
Love is all

LOVER

Lover when I'm near you
And I hear you, speak my name
Softly in my ear you breathe a flame
Lover when we're dancing
Keep on glancing in my eyes
Till loves own entrancing music dies
All of my future is in you
You're every plan I design
Promise you'll always continue
To be mine
Lover please be tender
When you're tender fears depart
Lover I surrender to my heart
Lover it's immoral
But why quarrel with our bliss
When two lips of coral want to kiss
I say the devil is in you
And to resist you I try
But if you didn't continue
I would die
Lover please be tender
When you're tender fears depart
Lover I surrender to my heart

MIGHTY LIKE A ROSE

Sweetest little fellow everybody knows
Don't know what to call him but he's mighty like a rose
Looking at his mammy with eyes so shiny blue
Makes you think that heaven is coming close to you
When he's there a-sleeping in his little place
Think I see the angels looking through the lace
When the dark is falling when the shadows creep
Then they come on tip-toe to kiss him in his sleep
Sweetest little fellow everybody knows
Don't know what to call him but he's mighty like a rose
Looking at his mammy with eyes so shiny blue
Makes you think that heaven is coming close to you

MORE AND MORE

More and more this heart of mine confesses
More and more I'm caught in your caresses
Warmed by the breath of your sighs
Cooled by the blue of your eyes
More and more I find it more than thrilling
To share this dream that needed fulfilling
More and more I'm less and less willing
To give up wanting more and more of you

MY HEART IS SINGING

My heart is singing because it's May
My cares go winging and fly away
For spring came swinging along
Bringing a song today
The breeze that lingers upon his way
To watch a sunbeam at play
Composes a love song to the roses
A love song that my heart is singing today
On a wings of a song let me fly away
Where woodland voices are calling
Leaving all my cares behind me
Never more to find me
While I tell the world this is May

MY OWN

My own let me call you my own
Let me make you a part of the song in my heart
Alone I'm just living in vain
Everything that I do is depending on you
Show me a sign of your longing for me
Say you are mine and forever that you will be
My own every dream I have known
Has been built of but one desire
Just to call you my own

NIGHT AND 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
And 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
Where-ever 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
Til you let me spend my life
Making love to you
Day and night
Night and day

NONE SHALL SLEEP

None shall sleep tonight
None shall sleep tonight
Until the dawn's revealing
Of the sought for answer
Who might he be
Whose arms shall be my haven
My blissful haven
This everlasting hope for love
Bereaves the night of silent rest
For love awaits the dawn
And the dawning
Sweet voice of morning
Shall call his name
I'll keep a vigil 'til the glow of sunrise
When he'll be mine
This everlasting hope for love
Bereaves the night of silent rest
Oh night depart
Ere the morrow
Stars on high grow paler
At daybreak he'll be mine
Mine at last
At last

THE OLD FOLKS AT HOME

Way down upon the Swanee River
Far far away
That's where my heart is turning ever
That's where the old folks stay
All up and down the whole creation
Sadly I roam
Still longing for the old plantation
And for the old folks at home
All the world is sad and dreary
Everywhere I roam
Oh God how my heart grows weary
Far from the old folks at home
All 'round the little farm I wandered
When I was young
Then many happy days I squandered
Many a song I sung
When I was playing with my brother
Happy was I
Oh take me to my kind old mother
There let me live and die
One little hut among the bushes
One that I love
Still sadly to my memory rushes
No matter where I rove
When will I see the bees a-humming
All around the comb
When will I hear the banjo strumming
Down in my good old home

THE OLD REFRAIN

I often think of home Dee-oo-lee-ay
When I am all alone and far away
I sing an old refrain Dee-oo-lee-ay
For it recalls to me a bygone day
It takes me back again to meadows fair
Where sunlight's golden rays beam everywhere
My childhood joys again come back to me
My mother's face in fancy too I see
It was my mother taught me how to sing
And to that memory my heart will cling
I'm never sad and lone while on my way
As long as I can sing Dee-oo-lee-ay
Though years have passed and gone Dee-oo-lee-ay
And though my heart is young my head is grey
Yet still the echoes ring Dee-oo-lee-ay
And dear old memories forever stay
My song can bring me visions full of light
And sweetest dreams throughout the darkest night
Of all that life can give that song is best
I'll take it with me when I go to rest
And when at last my journey here is over
'Twill ring more joyfully than ever before
For up to heaven I will take my lay
The angels too will sing Dee-oo-lee-ay

ONE FINE DAY

Weeping And why And why
Ah 'tis faith you are lacking hear me
One fine day we'll notice
A thread of smoke arising on the sea
In the far horizon
And then the ship appearing
Then the trim white vessel
Glides into the harbour
Thunders forth her cannon
See you Now he is coming
I do not go to meet him not I
I stay upon the brow of the hillock
And wait there
And wait for a long time
But never weary of the long waiting
From out the crowded city
There is coming a man
A little speck in the distance
Climbing the hillock
Can you guess who it is
And when he's reached the summit
Can you guess what he'll say
He will call Butterfly from the distance
I without answering
Hold myself quietly concealed
A bit to tease him and a bit
So as not to die at our first meeting
And then a little troubled
He will call he will call
Dear baby wife of mine
Dear little orange blossom
The names he used to call me when he came here
This will all come to pass as I tell you
Banish your idle fears
For he will return
Return

ON MOONLIGHT BAY

We were sailing along
On Moonlight Bay
We could hear the voices ringing
They seemed to say
You have stolen her heart
Now don't go 'way
As we sang love's old sweet song
On Moonlight Bay

PALE HANDS

Pale hands I loved beside the Shalimar
Where are you now who lies beneath your spell
Whom do you lead on rapture's roadway far
Before you agonise them in farewell
Pale hands I loved beside the Shalimar
Where are you now where are you now
Pale hands pink tipped like lotus buds that float
On those cool waters where we used to dwell
I would have rather felt you round my throat
Crushing out life than waving me farewell
Pale hands I loved beside the Shalimar
Where are you now where are you now

PERHAPS

Today at dawn a butterfly
Came to my window sill
The sunlight gleaming on his wings
Wakened me from my dreams
O butterfly if you could speak
What would you say to me
Do you know now of whom I'm dreaming
Did he send you to me
Perhaps perhaps you've come to say
Good morning my dearest one
Last night I told you I adored you
Asked if you loved me too
You laughed and said you did not know
If it would be wise to tell
Perhaps perhaps it would be wiser
If I told you goodbye
Perhaps perhaps he does not know
I did not mean what I said
Perhaps perhaps you better tell him
Tell him I love him so

SAY A PRAYER FOR THE BOYS OVER THERE

All of us are working hand in hand
We're working to preserve this wonderous land
But there is something more we all can do
That will help to bring our loved ones safely through
Say a prayer for the boys over there
When they play the Star Spangled Banner
Picture them by the dawn's early light
And ask the Lord to watch over them each night
Lift your eys as you silently rise
When they play the Star Spangled Banner
As the song of freedom fills the air
Say a prayer for the boys over there

A SERENADE TO THE STARS

A serenade to the stars
With my heart full of joy
I sing my refrain
Will I find the one that shines above
That will light up my way to love
A song is there at the start
And the words that I sing
Come right from my heart
No violins no strumming guitars
Just a serenade to the stars

SOMEONE TO CARE FOR ME

Will I discover someone to care for me
Who'll never scold me just hold me tenderly
Will someone ever sing me a love song while we dance
Will the music bring me romance
Will there be someone whenever skies are grey
To kiss my lonely tears away
And will that someone be all I dreamed my love would be
Someone to care for me
Bluebird you sing of happiness
Swinging in a blossom laden tree
But tell me bluebird will there be happiness for me

SPRING IN MY HEART

Life is sweet and gay
All the world's at play
There are blossoms of sunbeams
That glorify the day
And a gentle breeze
Wafting through the trees
Serenades me with music of tender melodies
Life is sweet to me
So sweet and heavenly
Today I'm falling in love with life
This is May time
Flowers in bloom
Banish the gloom
This is play time
Joy fills the air in May time
And my heart is so light and gay
Spring in my heart
Is forever and ever to be
And I'll sing to the birds
As they sing to me
Spring with its song
Will forever more be part of my heart
Spring in my heart
Is forever and ever to be
And I'll sing to the birds
As they sing to me
Springtime and I will never part
Spring is in my heart
Everyday I feel spring in my heart
In my heart

SPRING WILL BE A LITTLE LATE THIS YEAR

January and February were never so empty and grey
Tragically I feel like crying
Without you my darling I'm dying
But let's rather put it this way
Spring will be a little late this year
A little late arriving in my lonely world over here
For you have left me and where is our April of old
You have left me and winter continues cold
As if to say spring will be a little slow to start
A little slow reviving the music it made in my heart
Yes time heals all things so I needn't cling to this fear
It's merely that spring will be a little late this year

THAT CERTAIN AGE

Romance comes to everyone
At that certain age
You'll find life has just begun
At that certain age
All at once it hits you
You know you're in love
When that foolish feeling fits you
Just like a glove
Nothing seems impossible
All your dreams come true
You're not held responsible
For the things you do
Wouldn't life be wonderful
Delightfully insane
If we always could remain
At that certain age

THERE'LL ALWAYS BE AN ENGLAND

There'll always be an England
While there's a country lane
Wherever there's a cottage small
Beside a field of grain
There'll always be an England
While there's a busy street
Wherever there's a turning wheel
A million marching feet
Red white and blue what does it mean to you
Surely you're proud shout it aloud Britons awake
The empire too we can depend on you
Freedom remains these are the chains
Nothing can break
There'll always be an England
And England shall be free
If England means as much to you
As England means to me

WALTZING IN THE CLOUDS

I was a mortal with feet on the ground
There I was standing with people around
Lovely music started somewhere
And I started floating on air
Into a dream world I wandered afar
I saw you smile and I reached for a star
Could it happen would it happen
I only know here we are
Waltzing waltzing high in the clouds
Drifting dreaming far from the crowds
Over a moonbeam we stroll away
While the world below seems to roll away
And we go waltzing waltzing high in the clouds
Only you and I in the clouds
No one will hear when you call me your dear one
While waltzing high in the clouds

WHEN APRIL SINGS

Spring is here not a mere January thaw
But a little robin I saw told me it was so and so I know
Spring is here summer's near how can I tell
I know every sign of spring so very well
The countryside is green again
The world is seventeen again
My heart awakes when April sings
The skies above are blue again
The daffodils are new again
These are the joys that April brings
Songbirds are whispering down by the stream
Telling a weary world wake-up and dream
For love is new again and one and one are two again
My heart awakes when April sings

WHEN I SING

When I sing the cares of the day are far away
My heart seems as light as the song
I hear from some happy nightingale
When I sing my world is a place that's bright and gay
Rain turns to sunshine December to May
Life is divine when I sing
My grey days are gay days
When I tra-la-la for awhile
There's laughter in music
And each little note is a smile
The music is part of the joy in my heart

WHEN YOU'RE AWAY

When you're away dear
How weary the lonesome hours
Sunshine seems grey dear
The fragrance has left the flowers
Ever I hear you in seeming
Whispering soft love words to me
Ah if I knew it were but dreaming
Never to be
Then when you’re near me
There's not that I strive to do
Save to endear me
More fondly my love to you
Never again let us part dear
I’d die without you my own
Hold me again to your heart
I love you alone
Love you my own
Love you alone

YOU'RE AS PRETTY AS A PICTURE

You're as pretty as a picture
Has anyone ever told you before
You're the image of an angel from above
And you were just meant for me to adore
You're the model of perfection
The others are only copies of you
Can't you see the only thing that worries me
I wonder if you're too good to be true
Your eyes your hair
You're a perfect colour scheme
You're much too fair
You must have stepped out of a dream
You're as pretty as a picture
A beautiful exhibition of art
When I say you fairly take my breath away
Just picture what you have done to my heart
