FRANK SINATRA
(LOVE IS) THE TENDER TRAP

You see a pair of laughing eyes
And suddenly your sighing sighs
You're thinking nothing's wrong
You string along, boy, then snap!

Those eyes, those sighs, they're part of the tender trap

You're hand in hand beneath the trees
And soon there's music in the breeze
You're acting kind of smart, until your heart just goes wap!

Those trees, that breeze, they're part of the tender trap

Some starry night, when her kisses make you tingle
She'll hold you tight, and you'll hate yourself for being single

And all at once it seems so nice
The folks are throwing shoes and rice
You hurry to a spot, that's just a dot on the map

You're hooked, you're cooked, you're caught in the tender trap

Some starry night, when her kisses make you tingle
She'll hold you tight, and you'll hate yourself for being single

And all at once it seems so nice
The folks are throwing shoes and rice
You hurry to a spot that's just a dot on the map

And then you wonder how it all came about
It's too late now there's no gettin' out
You fell in love, and love is the tender trap

FRANK SINATRA
A BABY JUST LIKE YOU

The season is upon us now
A time for gifts and giving
And as the year draws to its close
I think about my living
The Christmas time when I was young,
The magic and the wonder,
But colors dull and candles dim,
And dark my standing under
O little Zachary, shining light
You've set my soul to dreaming
You've given back my joy in life
And filled me with new meaning

A Savior King was born that day,
A baby just like you,
And as the Magi came with gifts,
I come with my gift too
That peace on Earth fills up your time,
That brotherhood surrounds you.

That you may know the warmth of love,
And wrap it all around you
It's just a wish, a dream I'm told
From days when I was young

Merry Christmas, little Zachary
Merry Christmas, everyone
Merry Christmas, little Zachary
Merry Christmas, everyone

FRANK SINATRA
A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A FOOL

A day in the life of a fool, a sad and a long lonely day
I walk the avenue, and hope I'll run into
The welcome sight of you, coming my way
I stop just across from your door, but you're never home any more
So back to my room, and there in the gloom
I cry tears of good bye
That's the way it will be every day in the life of fool

FRANK SINATRA
A FINE ROMANCE

A fine romance, with no kisses
A fine romance, my friend this is
We should be like a couple of hot tomatoes
But you're as cold as yesterday's mashed potatoes
A fine romance, you won't nestle
A fine romance, you won't wrestle
I might as well play bridge
With my old maid aunt
I haven't got a chance
This is a fine romance

A fine romance, my good fellow
You take romance, I'll take jello
You're calmer than the seals
In the arctic ocean
At least they flap their fins
To express emotion
A fine romance with no quarrels
With no insults and all morals
I've never mussed the crease
In your blue serge pants
I never get the chance
This is a fine romance

FRANK SINATRA
A FOGGY DAY

A foggy day, in London town, it had me low, and it had me down
I viewed the morning, with much alarm, the British Museum, had lost its charm
How long I wondered, could this thing last, but the age of miracles, it hadn't past
And suddenly, I saw you standing right there
And in foggy London town, the sun was shining everywhere

FRANK SINATRA
A GARDEN IN THE RAIN

'twas just a garden in the rain
Close to a little leafy lane
A touch of color 'neath skies of gray

The raindrops kissed the flower beds
The blossoms raised their thirsty heads
A perfumed Thank you they seemed to say

Surely here was charm beyond compare to view
Maybe it was just that I was there with you

'twas just a garden in the rain
But then the sun came out again
And sent us happily on our way

[instrumental]

'twas just a garden in the rain
But then that sun came out again
And sent us happily on our way

FRANK SINATRA
A HUNDRED YEARS FROM TODAY

Hey don't save your kisses just pass 'em around
You'll find my reason is logically sound
Who's gonna know that you past them around
A hundred years from today
And why crave a penthouse that's fit for a queen
You're nearer heaven on mamma Earth's green
If you had millions what would they all me
One hundred years from today
So (Hey) laugh and sing make love the thing
Be happy while you may
('Cause) There's always one beneath the sun
Who's bound to make you feel that way
The moon is shining and that's a (very) good sign
Cling to me closer say (that) you'll be mine
Remember baby we won't see it shine
A hundred years from today, a hundred years from today

FRANK SINATRA
A LONG NIGHT

Long night, it's a long night, my friend
The barrooms and the back street's dead end
Sometimes I thought I saw the sunrise and good times in the air
It was just, it was just another big town with midnight's neon glare

Long night, it's a long night, I know
The bus rides and the nowhere to go

I've seen what the street corners do to things like love and dreams
Seen what the bottle can do to a man with his hopes and his schemes

A long night, what a long night it has been
The wheelers and the dealers, they win
I've tasted the 90 proof gin and chased it away with the blues
I rarely paid debts that I owed but I sure have paid my dues

No daylight, just a long night for me

FRANK SINATRA
A MAN ALONE

In me, you see a man alone
Held by the habit of being on his own
A man who listens to the trembling of the trees
With sentimental ease

In me, you see a man alone
Behind the wall he's learned to call his home
A man who still goes walkin' in the rain
Expecting love again

A man not lonely except when the dark comes on
A man learning to live with mem'ries of midnights that fell apart at dawn

In me, you see a man alone
Drinking up Sundays and spending them alone
A man who knows love is seldom what it seems
Only other people's dreams

[instrumental strings]

A man learning to live with memories of midnights that fell apart at dawn

In me, you see a man alone
Drinking up Sundays and spending them alone
A man who knows love is seldom what it seems
Just other people's dreams

FRANK SINATRA
A MAN ALONE (REPRISE)

In me, you see a man alone
Held by the habit of being on his own
A man who listens to the trembling of the trees
With sentimental ease

In me, you see a man alone
Behind the wall he's learned to call his home
A man who still goes walkin' in the rain
Expecting love again

A man not lonely except when the dark comes on
A man learning to live with mem'ries of midnights that fell apart at dawn

In me, you see a man alone
Drinking up Sundays and spending them alone
A man who knows love is seldom what it seems
Only other people's dreams

[instrumental strings]

A man learning to live with memories of midnights that fell apart at dawn

In me, you see a man alone
Drinking up Sundays and spending them alone
A man who knows love is seldom what it seems
Just other people's dreams

FRANK SINATRA
A NIGHTINGALE SANG IN BERKELEY SQUARE

That certain night, the night we met
There was magic abroad in the air
There were angels dining at the Ritz
And a nightingale sang in Berkley Square

I may be right, I may be wrong
But I'm perfectly willing to swear
That when you turned and smiled at me
A nightingale sang in Berkley Square

The moon that lingered over London town
Poor puzzled moon, he wore a frown
How could he know we two were so in love?
The whole darn world seemed upside down

The streets of town were paved with stars
It was such a romantic affair
And, as we kissed and said goodnight,
A nightingale sang in Berkley Square

[instrumental]

The streets of town were paved with stars
It was such a romantic affair
And, as we kissed and said goodnight,
A nightingale sang in Berkley Square

I know 'cause I was there
That night in Berkley Square

FRANK SINATRA
AFTER YOU'VE GONE

After you've gone and left me crying, after you've gone there's no denying
You'll feel blue you're gonna be sad
You've missed the dearest pal that (slickest partner) you ever had
There'll come a time don't you forget it
(Yeah) There'll come a time when you're gonna regret it
Some day when you get lonely
Your heart will break like mine (and) you'll want me only.
After you've gone (split) after you've gone away (flown the coop)
After we paid our dues together
You should have stayed through all that nasty weather
Someday while you're feeling badly
You'll need the only one that loves you so madly
But I'll be gone yes I'll be gone to stay
Yeah after I've gone after I've gone away

FRANK SINATRA
AIN'T SHE SWEET

Ain't she sweet? See her walking down that street.
Yes I ask you very confidentially, ain't she sweet?
Ain't she nice? Look her over once or twice.
Yes I ask you very confidentially, ain't she nice?
Just cast an eye in her direction, oh me oh my, ain't that perfection?
Oh I repeat, well, don't you think that's kinda neat?
Yes I ask you very confidentially, ain't she sweet?
[Instrumental break]
[Repeat all]
[Repeat 1 with last two lines twice.]

FRANK SINATRA
ALL ALONE

All alone, I'm so all alone
There is no one else but you
All alone by the telephone
Waiting for a ring, a ting a ling

I'm all alone every evening
All alone, feeling blue
Wond'ring where you are and how you are
And if you are all alone too

[instrumental]

I wonder where you are (remember me) and how you are (remember me)
And if you are (I love you) all alone (I love you) too

FRANK SINATRA
ALL I NEED IS THE GIRL

[lengthy instrumental intro]

Got my tweed pressed, got my best vest, all I need now is the girl
Got my striped tie, got my hopes high
Got the time and the place and I got the rhythm,
Now all I need's the girl to go with'em

If she'll just appear we'll take this big town for a whirl
And if she'll say My, darling, I'm yours
I'll throw away my striped tie and my best pressed tweed
All I really need is the girl

[lengthy instrumental while Franks hums and scats off and on]

Got my tweed pressed, I got my best vest, all I need now is the girl
Got my striped tie, got my hopes way up high
I got the time and the place and the rhythm
All I need's the girl to go with'em

Mm, if she'll just appear we'll take this, this great big town for a whirl
And if, if she'll say My, darlin', I'm yours
I'll throw away my striped tie and my best pressed tweed
All I real, really need is the girl

FRANK SINATRA
ALL MY TOMORROWS

Today I may not have a thing at all except for just a dream or two
But I've got lots of plans for tomorrow and all my tomorrows belong to you
Right now it may not seem like spring at all, we're drifting and the laughs are few
But I've got rainbows planned for tomorrow, and all my tomorrows belong to you
No one knows better than I that luck keeps passing me by ... that's fate
But with you there at my side, I'll soon be turning the tide ... just wait
As long as I've got arms that cling at all, it's you that I'll be clinging to
And all the dreams I dream, beg, or borrow on some bright tomorrow they'll all come true
And all my bright tomorrows belong to you

FRANK SINATRA
ALL OF YOU

I love the look(s) of you, (and) the lure of you, the sweet of you, and the pure of you
The eyes, the arms, and the (that) mouth of you,
The east, west, north, and the (that) south of you
I'd love to gain complete control of you, handle even the heart and soul of you
Love at least a small percent of me do cause (Because) I love all of you.

FRANK SINATRA
ALL OR NOTHING AT ALL

All or nothin' at all
Half a love never appealed to me
If your heart, it never could yield to me
Then I'd rather, rather have nothin' at all

I said all, nothin' at all
If it's love, there ain't no in between
Why begin then cry for somethin' that might have been
No I'd rather, rather have nothin' at all

Hey, please don't bring your lips close to my cheek
Don't you smile or I'll be lost beyond recall
The kiss in your eyes, the touch of your hand makes me weak
And my heart, it may grow very dizzy and fall

And if I fell under the spell of your call
I would be, be caught in the undertow
Well, you see, I've got to say No, no, no
All or nothin' at all

[instrumental]

And if I fell, fell under the spell of your call
Don't you know I would be caught in the undertow?
So, you see, I just got to say No, no
All or nothin' at all

All or nothin' at all

FRANK SINATRA
ALL THE WAY

When somebody loves you
It's no good unless he loves you all the way
Happy to be near you
When you need someone to cheer you all the way

[Chorus:]
Taller than the tallest tree is
That's how it's got to feel
Deeper than the deep blue sea is
That's how deep it goes if it's real

When somebody needs you
It's no good unless he needs you all the way
Through the good or lean years
And for all the in between years come what may

[Bridge:]
Who knows where the road will lead us
Only a fool would say
But if you'll let me love you
It's for sure I'm gonna love you all the way all the way


[instrumental last two lines of Chorus]

So, if you'll let me love you
It's for sure I'm gonna love you all the way all the way

FRANK SINATRA
ALL THE WAY HOME

Bluebirds, flowers
Sunshine and showers
Sunsets and rainbows
On skies of red and blue
Badges, whistles
Rockets and missiles
Puppies, kittens
And penny candy too
You make me feel so new
Like carnivals and carousels
Popsicles and wishing wells
And I am so in love with you
I can't believe it's true
We're gonna make it all the way home

Magic potions,
Incense and lotions
Bells, books and candles
Can make a witches' brew
But I don't need witches
Love spells or riches
You are my treasure
My fairy tale come true
With you is where I'll stay
All the time, anywhere
Turn around, and I'll be there
It was I, now it's we
And I know it will be
You and me, all the way home
Me and you, all the way home.

FRANK SINATRA
AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL

(America, America, America, America)

O beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain
For purple moutain majesties above thy fruited plain!
America, America, God shed His grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea

(O beautiful for patriot dream that sees beyond the years)
(Thine alabaster cities gleam undimmed by human tears)
America, America, God shed His grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea

FRANK SINATRA
AN OLD FASHIONED CHRISTMAS

Give me an old fashioned Christmas, an old fashioned Christmas,
Family faces, wide open spaces, covered with snow,
Right now my mom there in the kitchen, basting the Christmas bird,
You'll have to take my word, you can't find that at the automat.
An old fashioned fireplace, give me an old fashioned fireplace,
My heart remembers smoldering embers, warming your glow,
I'd trade that whole Manhattan skyline, the shimmering steel and chrome,
For one old fashioned Christmas back home.

FRANK SINATRA
ANY TIME AT ALL

Anytime, anytime you want me, honey, just let me know.
When you need affection, and you're looking for somewhere to go,
I'll be home, 'round the house just waiting, waiting for your call.
I mean anytime you want me, anytime at all.
Don't be ashamed to let me know you love me, that's such a silly thing to do,
'Cause anytime, you call me, baby, I'll come running straight to you.
I'll be there beside you even if I have to crawl,
Anytime you want me, I'm saying, anytime at all.
(I'll be there beside you even if I have to crawl,)
Anytime you want me, I mean, anytime at all.

FRANK SINATRA
ANYTIME (I'LL BE THERE)

Anytime you need me babe, just call I'll be there
Call and see what a good friend can be
When you need someone to care
Nothing more than understanding, just a man who's undemanding
Like a leaf that's only landing suddenly goes when the wind gently blows
And I'm asking nothing of you love, only what you want to give
And I wish you what I wish myself, ss long as I may live
Other arms will surely hold you, just remember the things that I told you
When these arms of mine enfold you
It's not out of greed but for love, and for need.

I love you so, I still do, I'm sure you know when I'm holding you
The sad part of seeing you is goodbye
Call and I'll come when your world's come undone
I'm like you, I get lonely too, and I need someone to hold
Knowing well this world can be hell and sometimes very cold

Nothing firm and nothing binding, now and then a slight reminding
Waking up one day and finding somewhere to run, somewhere to run
Somewhere to run when your world's come undone
Oh babe, I'll be there, I'll be there anytime

There's a certain thing about you, summer, fall and spring about you
I could write and sing about you, and never run out, never run out (no)
Never run out of what you're all about
Oh babe, I'll be there , I'll be there anytime

FRANK SINATRA
AS YOU DESIRE ME

As you desire me, so shall I come to you,
Howe'er you wander, so shall I be,
Be it forever, or be it just a day,
As you desire me, come what may.
I doubt not but you will do what you will with me,
I give my life to you 'cause you're my destiny.
And now, come take me, my soul is yours.
As you desire me, I come to you.
And now, come take me, my very soul is yours,
As you desire me, I come to you.

FRANK SINATRA
AT LONG LAST LOVE

Is it an earthquake or simply a shock?
Is it the good turtle soup or merely the mock?
Is it a cocktail, this feeling of joy?
Or is what I feel the real McCoy?

Is it for all time or simply a lark?
Is it Granada I see or only Asbury Park?
Is it a fancy not worth thinking of?
Or is it at long last love?

Is it an earthquake, or simply a shock?
Is it the good turtle soup, or is it merely the mock?
Is it a cocktail, this feeling of joy?
Or is what I feel the real McCoy?

Is it for all time or simply a lark?
Is it Granada I see or only Asbury Park?
Is it a fancy, not worth thinking of?
Or is it at long long long last love?

FRANK SINATRA
AVAILABLE

Anytime you call, I'm so available, anytime you call,
(Anytime, anytime) Anytime at all, I'm so available, anytime at all.
(Anytime, anytime) Don't have to bring a cake or a band home,
You don't have to phone ahead.
Make no mistake, I'm still the old standby,
I am as you might guess, at the old address,
Chances are that you are unassailable and that we are through.
(Chances are, chances are)
But what can I do, I'm still available, just like the first evening star,
You can trust that I'll be there, summer, spring or fall,
I'm in love and available, anytime at all.
(But what could I do, I'm still available, like the first evening star)
You can trust that I'll be there, summer, spring or fall,
I'm in love and available, anytime at all.

BANG BANG (MY BABY SHOT ME DOWN)

I was five and she was six
We rode on horses made of sticks
I wore black and she wore white
She would always win the fight

Bang bang, she shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down

[instrumental]

Seasons came and changed the time
And we grew up, I called her mine
She would always laugh and say
Remember when we used to play?

Bang bang, I shot you down
Bang bang, you hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, I used to shoot you down

[Bridge]
Music played and people sang
Just for me the church bells rang

[instrumental]

Now she's gone, I don't know why
And till this day, sometimes I cry
She didn't even say goodbye
She didn't take the time to lie

Bang bang, she shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down

BARBARA

Where there is sunrise, there is Barbara, only Barbara clothes that way,
Where there is laughter, there is Barbara, always Barbara warm and gay.
And when there's music, she is the song, the song I'm singing my whole life long.
There's no one just like her, like Barbara, only Barbara is so rare.
Wherever she is, I'll be there.
There's no one just like her, like Barbara, only Barbara, she's so rare,
Wherever she is, I'll be there.

BAUBLES, BANGLES AND BEADS

Baubles, bangles, hear how they jing, jinga linga
Baubles, bangles, bright shiny beads
Sparkles, spangles, your heart will sing, singa linga
Wearin' baubles, bangles and beads

You'll glitter and gleam so
Make somebody dream so that

Some day he may buy you a ring, ringa linga
I've heard that's where it leads
Wearin' baubles, bangles, and beads

[instrumental]

Baubles, bangles, hear how they jing, jinga linga
Baubles, bangles, all those bright, shiny beads
Sparkles, spangles, your heart will sing, singa linga
Wearin' baubles, bangles, and beads

You'll, you'll glitter and gleam so
You're gonna make somebody dream so that

Some day he may, he may buy you a ring, ringa linga
I've heard that that's where it leads
If you're wearin' baubles bangles and them cool, cool beads

FRANK SINATRA
BE CAREFUL, IT'S MY HEART

Be careful, it's my heart, it's not my watch you're holding, it's my heart.
It's not the note that I sent you that you quickly burn,
It's not a book I lent you that you never return.
Remember, it's my heart,. the heart with which so willingly I part
It's yours to take, to keep or break, but please, before you start,
Be careful, it's my heart.

FRANK SINATRA
BEIN' GREEN

It's not that easy bein' green
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves
When I think it could be nicer bein' red or yellow or gold
Or something much more colorful like that

It's not easy bein' green
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things
And people tend to pass you over 'cause you're
Not standin' out like flashy sparkles on the water
Or stars in the sky

But green is the color of Spring
And green can be cool and friendly like
And green can be big like an ocean
Or important like a mountain
Or tall like a tree

When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why
But why wonder, why wonder?
I am green and it'll do fine
It's beautiful
And I think it's what I want to be

[instrumental]

And green can be big like an ocean
Or important like a mountain
Or tall like a tree

When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why
But why wonder, why wonder?
I am green and it'll do fine
It's beautiful
And I think it's what I want to be

FRANK SINATRA
BEWITCHED

[Intro:]
She's a fool and don't I know it?
But a fool can have her charms
I'm in love and don't I show it?
Like a babe in arms

Love's the same old sad sensation
Lately, I've not slept a wink
Since this silly situation
Has me on the blink

I'm wild again, beguiled again
A simpering, whimpering child again
Bewitched, bothered, and bewildered am I

Couldn't sleep, wouldn't sleep
Then love came and told me I shouldn't sleep
Bewitched, bothered, and bewildered am I

Lost my heart, but what of it?
She is cold, I agree
She might laugh, but I love it
Although the laugh's on me

I'll sing to her, bring spring to her
And long for the day when I'll cling to her
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered am I

FRANK SINATRA
BLUE LACE

Blue lace, her gown was blue lace,
She wore the promise of springtime and laughter.
Daybreak, we talked till daybreak
Without a warning of what might come after.
Her touch was velvet, I still can feel it
That one brief moment that ended in space.
Sometime in mid December,
I hear the music, the echo of springtime laughter,
All day I see the old days,
When I'd seen the young girls in blue, blue lace.
Her gown was blue lace, such lovely blue lace,
Her gown was blue.

FRANK SINATRA
BONITA

What can I say to you, Bonita, what magic word would capture you
Like a soft salacious mist you are, Bonita, you fly away when love is new
What do you ask of me, Bonita, what part do you want me to play,
Shall I be the clown for you, Bonita, I will be anything you say.
Bonita, don't run away, Bonita.
Bonita, don't be afraid to fall in love with me,
I love you, I tell you, I love you, I love you, Bonita.
If you love me, life would be beautiful, Bonita.
I love you, I tell you, I love you, I love you.
If you love me, life would be beautiful, Bonita.

FRANK SINATRA
BORN FREE

Born free, as free as the wind blows, as free as the grass grows,
Born free to follow your heart.
Live free and beauty surrounds you, the world still astounds you,
Each time you look at the stars.
Stay free where no walls divide you, you're free as the roaring tide,
So there's no need to hide.
Born free and life is worth living, but only worth livng,
Cause you're born free.

FRANK SINATRA
BOTH SIDES, NOW

Rows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons ev'rywhere
I've looked at clouds that way

But now they only block the sun
They rain and snow on ev'ryone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way
I've looked at clouds from both sides now

From up and down, and still somehow
It's cloud illusions I recall
I really don't know clouds at all

Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels
The dizzy dancing way you feel
As ev'ry fairy tale comes real
I've looked at love that way

But now it's just another show
You leave 'em laughing when you go
And if you care, don't let them know
Don't give yourself away

I've looked at love from both sides now
From give and take, and still somehow
It's love's illusions I recall
I really don't know love at all

Tears and fears and feeling proud
To say I love you right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
I've looked at life that way

But now old friends are acting strange
They shake their heads, they say I've changed
Well something's lost, but something's gained
In living ev'ry day

I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all
I've looked at life from both sides now
From up and dawn, and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all

FRANK SINATRA
BUT NOT FOR ME

They're writing songs of love but not for me, a lucky star's above but not for me
With love to lead the way, I've found more clouds of gray
Than any Russian play can guarantee
I was a fool to fall and get this way;
Hi ho alas and also lackaday
Although I can't dismiss the memory of her kiss
I guess she's not she's not for me
Old man sunshine listen you never tell me dreams come true
Just try it and all start a riot
Beatrice Fairfax don't you dare ever tell me she will care
I'm certain it's the final curtain
I never want to here from any cheerful Polly Anna's
Who tell you fate supplies a mate it's all bananas
It all began so well but what an end, this is the time a fellow needs a friend
When every happy plot, ends with a marriage knot
And there's no knot, no (k)not for me

FRANK SINATRA
BY THE TIME I GET TO PHOENIX

By the time I get to Phoenix she'll be rising.
She'll find the note I left hanging on her door.
She'll laugh when she reads the part that says I'm leaving
Cause I've left that girl so many times before.
By the time I make Albuquerque she'll be working.
She'll probably stop for lunch and give me a call.
But she'll just hear the phone keep on ringing, on the wall, that's all.
By the time I reach Oklahoma she'll be sleeping.
She'll turn softly and call my name out low.
And she'll cry just to think I'd really leave her,
Though time and time again I tried to tell her so.
She just didn't know I would really go.

FRANK SINATRA
CALIFORNIA

I've known her valleys, I've known her mountains
Her missions and her courtyards and her fountains
The giant redwoods towering in the skies of her
That grow as though as they know they show the size of her

I've often wandered her farthest reaches
Her deserts and her snow and, yes, her beaches
A land that paradise could well be jealous of
That's California, California, blessed by heaven from above
That's California, land I love

(I've known her valleys, I've known her mountains)
(Her missions and her courtyards and her fountains)
(The giant redwoods towering in the skies of her)
(That grow as though as they know they show the size of her)

I've often wandered her farthest reaches
Her deserts and her snows and, yes, her beaches
A land that paradise could well be jealous of
That's California, California, bless'd by heaven from above
That's California, the land I love

FRANK SINATRA
CALL ME

When you're feeling sad and lonely there's a service I can render.
Tell the one who loves you only, I can be so warm and tender.
Call me, don't be afraid you can call me, maybe it's late but just call me.
Call me and I'll be around.
When its seems your friends desert you, there's somebody thinking of you.
I'm the one who'll never hurt you, maybe it's because I love you.
Call me, don't be afraid you can call me, maybe it's late but just call me.
Call me and I'll be around.
Now don't forget me, cause if you let me, I will always stay by you.
You got to trust me, that's how it must be, there's so much I can do.
If you call, I'll be right with you. You and I should be together.
Take this love I long to give you. I'll die at your side forever, call me, call me.

FRANK SINATRA
CALL ME IRRESPONSIBLE

Call me irresponsible call me unreliable, throw in undependable too
Do my foolish alibis bore you, well I'm not too clever I just adore you
Call me unpredictable tell me I'm impractical, rainbows I'm inclined to pursue
Call me irresponsible yes I'm unreliable,
But it's undeniably true I'm irresponsibly mad for you

FRANK SINATRA
CHANGE PARTNERS

Must you dance every dance with the same fortunate man?
You have danced with him since the music began.
Won't you change partners and dance with me?
Must you dance quite so close with your lips touching his face?
Can't you see
I'm longing to be in his place?
Won't you change partners and dance with me?
Ask him to sit this one out. while you're alone,
I'll tell the waiter to tell him he's wanted on the telephone.
You've been locked in his arms ever since heaven knows when.
Won't you change partners and then,
You may never want to change partners again.

FRANK SINATRA
CHARMAINE

[Male Verse]
I can't forget the night we met how bright were stars above
That precious memory lingers yet when you declared your love
and then you went away and now each night and day

I wonder why you keep me waiting, Charmaine, my Charmaine
I wonder when bluebirds are mating, will you come back again
I wonder if I keep on praying, will our dreams be the same
I wonder if you ever think of me too ..
I am waiting my Charmaine for you ...

[Female Verse]
You went away on dreary day I knew you had to go,
Mid tears and cheers I heard you say Charmaine, I love you so
Tho old years turn to new my heart keeps calling you

I wonder why you keep me waiting Charmaine cries in vain
I wonder when bluebirds are mating, will you come back again
I wonder if I keep on praying, will our dreams by the same
I wonder if you ever think of me too
Charmaine's waiting, just for you.

FRANK SINATRA
CHRISTMAS MEMORIES

Singing carols, stringing popcorn, making footprints in the snow,
Memories, Christmas memories, they're the sweetest ones I know.
Cookies taking in the kitchen, calls in rhythm everywhere,
Proxies, Christmas memories, float like snowflakes in the air.
Oh the joy of waking Christmas mornings, the family round the tree,
We had a way of making Christmas morning as merry as can be,
I close my eyes and see shining faces
Of all the children who now have children of their own
Funny, but comes December, and I remember every Christmas I've known.

FRANK SINATRA
CLOSE TO YOU

Close to you, I will always stay.
Close to you, though you're far away.

You'll always be near as though you were here by my side.
No matter where in my dreams I'll find you there
Close to me, sharing you're caress.
Can't you see you're my happiness?

Wherever you go, my heart will go, too.
What can I do?
It only wants to be close to you.

[Musical interlude]

Wherever you go, my heart will go, too.
What can I do?
It only wants to be close to you.

FRANK SINATRA
COME BACK TO ME

Hear my voice, where you are, take a train, steal a car,
Hop a freight, grab a star, come back to me.
Catch a flame, catch a breeze, on your hand, on your knees,
Swim up high, only please come on back to me.
On a mule, in a jet, with your hair in a net,
In a shower wet, I don't care.
This is where you should be, from the hills to the shore,
By the wind to my door, raise the highway dust,
Break the law if you must, throw the world, only just
Come back to me.

Blast your hide, you recall, must I fight City hall
Here and now, damn it all, come on back to me,
Where on earth must I be, still I yell till I'm blue,
In control then when you come on back to me.
Have you gone to the moon, or the corner saloon
And to crack and to croon, oh my girl, where in hell can you be?
In a crate, in a trunk, on a horse, on a junk,
In a road or a van, wrapped in mink or saran,
Anyway that you can, came back to me,
Come back to me, come back to me, come back,
Come back to me, me!

FRANK SINATRA
COME BLOW YOUR HORN

Make like a Mister Milquetoast and you'll get shut out,
Make like a Mister Meek and you'll get cut out,
Make like a little lamb, and wham, you're shorn,
I tell ya, chum, it's time to come blow your horn.

Make like a Mister Mumbles and you're a zero,
Make like a Mister Big; they dig a hero.
You've got to sound your A the day you're born,
I tell ya, chum, it's time to come blow your horn.

The taller the tree is the sweeter the peach,
I'll give you the whole maguilla in a one word speach: Reach!

Make like the world's your pudding, but light the brandy,
Even the mildest kiss is a dan, dan, dandy,
There'll be no love in bloom come doomsday morn,
I tell ya, chum, it's time to come blow your horn.

[Musical Interlude]

In civilized jungles females adore
The lions who come on swingin'; if you wanna score roar!

You can be either read to or be the reader,
You can be either lead or be the leader.
Don't wait until you're told you're old and worn,
Take in some air and get your lips puckered,
Before you find you're simply too tuckered,
I'll tell ya, chum, it's time to come blow your horn.

Blow your horn,
I tell ya, chum, it's time to come blow your horn.

FRANK SINATRA
COME FLY WITH ME

Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away
If you can use some exotic booze
There's a bar in far Bombay
Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away

Come fly with me, let's float down to Peru
In llama land there's a one man band
And he'll toot his flute for you
Come fly with me, let's take off in the blue

Once I get you up there where the air is rarified
We'll just glide, starry eyed
Once I get you up there I'll be holding you so near
You may hear angels cheer 'cause we're together

Weather wise it's such a lovely day
You just say the words and we'll beat the birds
Down to Ac apulco Bay
It's perfect for a flying honeymoon, they say
Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away

[instrumental]

Once I get you up there where the air is rarified
We'll just glide, starry eyed
Once I get you up there I'll be holding you so near
You may hear angels cheer 'cause we're together

Weather wise it's such a lovely day
You just say the words and we'll beat the birds
Down to Ac apulco Bay
It's perfect for a flying honeymoon, they say
Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly
Pack up, let's fly away!!

COME RAIN OR COME SHINE

I'm gonna love you like nobody's loved you
Come rain or come shine
High as a mountain and deep as a river
Come rain or come shine

[Bridge]
I guess when you met me, it was just one of those things
But don't you ever bet me, 'cause I'm gonna be true if you let me

You're gonna love me like nobody's loved me
Come rain or come shine
We'll be happy together, unhappy together
Now won't that be just fine?

The days may be cloudy or sunny
We're in or we're out of the money
But I'm with you always
I'm with you rain or shine

[instrumental]

Days may be cloudy or sunny
We're in or we're out of the money
I'm with you, baby
I'm with you rain or shine

FRANK SINATRA
COME WALTZ WITH ME

27, 1962, Los Angeles]

Before we say good bye forever, come waltz with me, come waltz with me once more
Before we let love die forever, come waltz with me, the way we waltzed before
Before our little world, just crumbled and fell
And tumbled, like a house of cards to the floor
Before I'm left to sigh forever, and haunt the past give me this last encore
Oh darling come and waltz with me once more

FRANK SINATRA
CYCLES

So I'm down and so I'm out
But so are many others
So I feel like tryin' to hide
My head 'neath these covers
Life is like the seasons
After winter comes the spring
So I'll keep this smile awhile
And see what tomorrow brings

I've been told and I believe
That life is meant for livin'
And even when my chips are low
There's still some left for givin'
I've been many places
Maybe not as far as you
So I think I'll stay awhile
And see if some dreams come true

There isn't much that I have learned
Through all my foolish years
Except that life keeps runnin' in cycles
First there's laughter, then those tears

But I'll keep my head up high
Although I'm kinda tired
My gal just up and left last week
Friday I got fired
You know it's almost funny
But things can't get worse than now
So I'll keep on tryin' to sing
But please, just don't ask me how

FRANK SINATRA
DAYBREAK

Daybreak, another new day, the mist on the meadow is drifting away,
For it's daybreak, the sun's in the sky now,
And flowers break through their blanket of dew,
Sunrise, how lovely it seems, to see from my window a sky full of dreams,
As the white clouds sail on through the blue, at daybreak I did dream of you.

FRANK SINATRA
DAYS OF WINE AND ROSES

The days of wine and roses laugh and run away like a child at play
Through the meadow land toward a closing door
A door marked nevermore that wasn't there before

The lone ly night discloses just a passing breeze filled with memories
Of the golden smile that introduced me to
The days of wine and roses and you

[brief instrumental break]
The days of wine and roses
[more instrumental rest of the first verse]

The lonely the night discloses just a passing breeze filled with memories
Of the golden smile that introduced me to
The days of wine and roses and you

FRANK SINATRA
DEAR HEART

Dear heart, wish you were here to warm this night
My dear heart, it seems like a year since you've been out of my sight
A single room, a table for one
It's a lonesome town all right
But soon I'll kiss you hello at our front door
And dear heart, I want you to know
I'll leave your arms never more
(A single room, a table for one)
(It's a lonesome town all right)
But soon I'll kiss you hello at our front door
And dear heart, I want you to know
I'll leave your arms never more

FRANK SINATRA
DESAFINADO

When I try to sing you say I'm off key
Why can't you see how much this hurts me
With your perfect beauty and your perfect pitch
You're a perfect terror
When I come around must you always put me down
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
But all I have is feelings and a voice gone deaf
You insist my music goes against the rules
But rules were never meant for lovesick fools
I wrote this little song for you but you don't care
Its a crooked song oh but all my love 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 Rollaflex
And now all I have developed is a complex
Possibly in vain I hope you weaken oh my love
And forget these 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

FRANK SINATRA
DINDI

Sky, so vast is the sky, with far away clouds just wandering by,
Where do they go? Oh I don't know, don't know;
Wind that speaks to the leaves, telling stories that no one believes,
Stories of love belong to you and to me.

Oh, Dindi, if I only had words I would say all the beautiful
things that I see when you're with me, Oh my Dindi.
Oh Dindi, like the song of the wind in the trees, that's how my heart is
singing Dindi, Happy Dindi, When you're with me.

I love you more each day, yes I do, yes I do;
I'd let you go away, if you take me with you.

Don't you know, Dindi, I'd be running and searching for you like a river
that
can't find the sea, that would be me without you, my Dindi.
can't find the sea that would be me without you Dindi.

Like a river that can't find the sea, that would be me without you, my
Dindi.

DON'CHA GO 'WAY MAD

I must confess what you say is true
I had a rendezvous with somebody new
That's the only one I ever had
Baby, baby, don'cha go away mad

Cheatin' shows and it never goes
You got a reason to be mad I suppose
But she only was a passin' fad
Ba by, don't you be mad

Her kind's a dime a dozen
And that's not the kind I want
Who'd ever dream your cousin
Would wander into that restaurant?

I understand that you feel upset
Whaddya you say that you forgive and forget?
Come on and kiss me just to show you're glad
Baby, baby don'cha go away mad

[instrumental]

Now, her kind's a dime a dozen
I should've passed her by
Who'd ever dream your cousin
Would come along and give us the eye?

I understand that feel upset
Whaddya you say that you forgive and forget?
Come on and kiss me just to show you're glad
Baby, don'cha go away mad

Understand that you're quite upset
Whaddya you say that you forgive and forget?
Come on and kiss me just to show you're glad
Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, don'cha go
'way mad

Now, don'cha go away mad

DON'T BE A DO BADDER (FINALE)

Take it from me, don't be a do badder up,
Do badder up, do bother to put your foot up.
That ladder that leads you to that place.
Below and every day you lose other you.
Feel sadder you get madder so use the other.
Step ladder you climb the other way.
Scrapping and fighting, scratching and fighting,
Cheating and acting. selfish makes your heart.
Like a part of the hardest heart, so selfish.
Take it from me, don't you be a do badder up,
A do badder up, a do badder up, just step up for that.
Step ladder and climb the other way.

FRANK SINATRA
DON'T BE THAT WAY

April skies are in your eyes, but darling, don't be blue
Don't cry, oh honey please don't be that way.
Clouds in the sky should never make you feel that way
The rain will bring the violets of May
Tears are in vain, so honey please don't be that way
As long as we see it through, you'll have me, I'll have you
Sweetheart, tomorrow is another day
Don't break my heart, oh honey, please don't be that way

Don't cry, oh honey please don't be that way
Clouds in the sky should never make you feel that way
The rain will bring the violets of May
Tears in vain, so honey please don't be that way
As long as we will see it through
You'll have me and I'll have you
Sweetheart, tomorrow is another day
Don't break my heart, nh honey, please don't be that way,
Don't cry, don't cry, don't cry.

DON'T CRY JOE

Don't cry, Joe, let her go, let her go, let her go,
Don't cry, Joe, let her go, let her go, let her go.
You got to realize this is the wind up,
You're gonna feel much better once you made your mind up.
Don't cry, Joe, let her go, let her go, let her go.
So you lost your gal, it's happened many times before,
So you sit and mope like a dope, what's that good for,
Get a hold of yourself, forget her, you lived long before you met her.
There're lots of other girls, so I say,
Don't cry, Joe, let her go, let her go, let her go.
Don't cry, Joe, let her go, let her go, let her go.
You got to realize this is the wind up,
You'll feel much better once you made your mind up.
Don't cry, Joe, let her go, let her go, let her go.

Take a look around and see just what you're missing,
You'll soon forget your troubles, Joe, if you'd only listen.
So don't cry, Joe, let her go, let her go, Joe, let her go.

FRANK SINATRA
DON'T EVER GO AWAY (POR CAUSA DE VOCE)

Ah take a look and you'll see the way I have become and the way things became
Sadness and sorrow are here in the little things you touched with your hands
This loving home was a home so happy to protect you and keep you with care
The flowers in the window were smiling were glowing just knowing you were there
Listen my love nevermore Don't ever go away
Cause we are you are your life and your dream and we want you to stay
Come in my love come to me don't let this heartless world
bring another good bye
Embrace me in a simple way
Don't speak don't remember and darling don't cry

FRANK SINATRA
DON'T SLEEP IN THE SUBWAY

You wander around on your own little cloud
When you don't see the why or the wherefore
You walk out on me when we both disagree
'Cause to reason is not what you care for
I've heard it all a million times before
Take off your coat, my love, and close the door
Don't sleep in the subway, darlin', don't stand in the pouring rain
Don't sleep in the subway, darlin', the night is long
Forget your foolish pride, nothing's wrong
Now you're beside me again

You try to be smart, then you take it to heart
'Cause it hurts when your ego is deflated
You don't realize that it's all compromise
And the problems are so overrated
Goodbye means nothing when it's all for show
So why pretend you've somewhere else to go
Don't sleep in the subway, darlin', don't stand in the pouring rain
Don't sleep in the subway, darlin', the night is long
Forget your foolish pride, nothing's wrong
Now you're beside me again
Don't sleep in the subway, darlin'...

FRANK SINATRA
DON'T TAKE YOUR LOVE FROM ME

Tear a star from out the sky and the sky feels blue
Tear a petal from a rose and the rose weeps, too
Take your heart away from mine and mine will surely break
My life is yours to make, so, please keep the spark awake

Would you take the wings from birds so that they can't fly?
Would you take the ocean's roar and leave just a sigh?
All this your heart won't let you do
This is what I beg of you
Please don't take your love from me

[instrumental strings]

All this your heart won't let you do
This is what I beg of you
Don't take your love from me

FRANK SINATRA
DON'T WAIT TOO LONG

You are the summer and I am the autumn
Don't wait too long
Your song's beginning while mine's nearly sung
Don't wait too long

Fall is a lovely time of the year
When leaves turn to golden brown
But soon fall is ending and winter is near
And the leaves start tumblin' down

Why must the moments go by in such haste?
Don't wait too long
Winter is coming, I've no time to waste
Don't wait too long

So while my heart's gay and foolish and free and still can sing its song
Share every precious moment with me, don't you wait too long

[instrumental first line of a verse]
Don't wait too long
[instrumental second line of a verse]
Don't wait too long

So while my heart's gay and foolish and free and still can sing its song
Share every precious moment with me, don't wait too long.

DOWNTOWN

When you're alone and life is making you lonely
You can always go downtown
When you've got worries, all the noise and the hurry
Seems to help, I know downtown
Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty
How can you lose?

The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
So go downtown, things'll be great when you're
Downtown no finer place, for sure
Downtown everything's waiting for you

Don't hang around and let your problems surround you
There are movie shows downtown
Maybe you know some little places to go to
Where they never close downtown
Just listen to the rhythm of a gentle bossa nova
You'll be dancing with him too before the night is over
Happy again

The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
So go downtown, where all the lights are bright
Downtown waiting for you tonight
Downtown you're gonna be all right now

[instrumental]

And you may find somebody kind to help and understand you
Someone who is just like you and needs a gentle hand to
Guide them along

So maybe I'll see you there
We can forget all our troubles, forget all our cares
So go downtown, things'll be great when you're
Downtown don't wait a minute for
Downtown everything's waiting for you
Downtown, downtown, downtown, downtown ...

FRANK SINATRA
DREAM AWAY

Dream away, child; let your dreams run wild
Or a lifetime of worries might claim you.
Dream away, child; let your dreams run wild
Or the years and the tears shed might claim you.

For the last time we have tasted
love's sweet tears by the fire's glow.
If our hearts are strong there'll be
no long good byes when it's time to go.
But the strongest torch is sometimes broken
As the deepest vows aren't always spoken,
And the greatest wounds, we hide inside ourselves
Where they never show.

Dream away, child, let your dreams run wild.
Or a lifetime of worries might claim you.
Dream away, child; let your dreams run wild
Or the years and the tears shed might claim you.

When the Winter weds the Northern Wind
The child they bear is snow.
And the branches bow like worried bridesmaids
But the trees will grow.
Sun and Earth in time will come together,
God will give us back our summer weather,
But the mem'ries of that first sweet
Taste of love pass away so slow.

Dream away, child; let your dreams run wild
Or a lifetime of worries might claim you.
Dream away, child; let your dreams run wild
Or the years and the tears shed might claim you.

When there's no room left to live inside ourselves
Do we dream away.

FRANK SINATRA
DRINKING AGAIN

Drinkin' again and thinkin' of when, when you loved me
I'm havin' a few and wishin' that you were here

Makin' the rounds, accepting a round from strangers
Bein' a fool just hopin' that you'll appear

Sure, I can borrow a smoke, maybe tell some joker a bad joke
But nobody laughs, they don't laugh at a broken heart

Oh, yeah, I'm drinkin' again, it's always the same
That same old story
After the kicks there's little old mixed up me
Tryin' to lose a dream that used to be

Look at me, I'm drinkin' again, drinkin' all over town
Yeah, I'm drinkin' again

DRINKING WATER (AQUA DE BEBER)

Your love is rain, my heart the flower, I need your love or I will die
My very life is your power, will I wither and fade or bloom to the sky
Aqua de Beber, Give the flower water to drink
Aqua de Beber, Give the flower water to drink
The rain can fall on distant deserts, the rain can fall upon the sea
The rain can fall upon the flower, since the rain has to fall let it fall on me
Aqua de Beber, Give the flower water to drink
Aqua de Beber, Give the flower water to drink

DRY YOUR EYES

Dry your eyes, and take your song out, it's a newborn afternoon.
If you can't recall the singer, you can still recall the tune.
Dry your eyes and play it slowly, like you're marching off to war,
Sing it like you know he'd want it, like we sang it once before.
From the center of the circle to the midst of the waving crowd.
If it ever be forgotten, sing it long and sing it loud.
Come, dry your eyes.
And he taught us more about giving than we ever cared to know.
But we came to find the secret and we never let it go.
And it was more than being holy, though it was less than being free,
And if you can't recall the reason, can you hear the people sing,
Through the lightning and the thunder, to the dark side of the moon,
To that distant calling angel who descended much too soon.
And come, dry your eyes.

[musical interlude]

Come, dry your eyes.

EARLY AMERICAN

The dream I'm building is Early American,
Something that won't go out of style,
It makes you feel that life's worth living,
The way they must have felt that first Thanksgiving.
You sure get sold on this Early American,
After you've looked around a while,
So I'm building a dream for someone who
Like Early Americans do.

EAST OF THE SUN (AND WEST OF THE MOON)

East of the sun and west of the moon,
We'll build a dream house so lovely
Near to the sun in a day, near to the moon at night,
We'll live in a lovely way dear
Living our love in memory
Just you and I, forever and a day,
Love will not die, we'll keep it that way,
Up among the stars we'll find
A harmony of life, too lovely tune
East of the sun and west of the moon, dear,
East of the sun and west of the moon.

ELIZABETH

Dressed in dreams for me, you were what I wished to see, Elizabeth, Elizabeth
Love was very new, make believe was coming true, Elizabeth, Elizabeth
You were all much too much, out of reach and out of touch
When you came to me, I found it could never be, Elizabeth, Elizabeth, Elizabeth
So a dream has to end when it's real, not pretend, dressed in memories
You are what you used to be, Elizabeth, Elizabeth, Elizabeth

EMILY

Emily, Emily, Emily
Has the murmuring sound of May
All silver bells, coral shells, carousels
And the laughter of children at play

They say Emily, Emily, Emily
And we fade to a marvelous view
Two lovers alone and out of sight
Seeing images in the firelight
As my eyes visualize a family
They see dreamily, Emily

[instrumental break]

Two lovers alone and out of sight
Seeing images in the firelight
As my eyes visualize a family

EMPTY IS

[Speaks:]
Empty is the sky before the sun wakes up.
Empty is the eyes of animals in cages.
Empty, faces of women mourning
When everything's been taken from them.
Me, don't ask me about empty.

[Sings:]
Empty is a string of dirty days
Held together by some rain.
And the cold winds drumming at the trees again.
Empty is the color of the fear
Long about September when the days
Go marching in a line toward November.
Empty is the hour before sleep chills you every night
And pushes you to take me away from every kind of light.
Empty is me.
Empty is me.

FRANK SINATRA
EMPTY TABLES

It's like singin' to empty tables
Or a gallery full of ghosts
Or like givin' a great big party
Where nobody shows but the host
That's what it's been like, baby
That's what it's been like all night
Without you around to applaud me
Every night's just like closing night

And I'm singin', singin' the same old numbers
n' I'm tellin' the same sad jokes
And there's nothin' out front but mem'ries
And lot of transparent folks
So, please call, call and make a reservation
In our favorite spot for two
cause I'm singin' to empty tables without you

Without you
Without you

EV'RYBODY HAS THE RIGHT TO BE WRONG! (AT LEAST ONCE)

Everybody has the right to be wrong at least once
Everybody has the right to be dunce like, once like
Not being too smart is, is no disgrace
What sets you apart is smilin' with egg on your face

Its naive to make believe that you're right, it's not bright
Only fools go walking on thin ice, twice

You and life can skip the strife and you'll both get along
All it takes is simply saying you're wrong when you're wrong
And everybody has the right to be wrong

[brief musical interlude]

You and life can skip the strife and you'll both get along
All it takes is simply sayin' you're wrong when you're wrong
And everybody has the right to be
It can be a real delight to be
And I'd fight, fight for the right to be wrong

[Spoken:]
At least once!

EVERYBODY OUGHT TO BE IN LOVE

Empty rooms behind me, no more nights alone,
A table and some chairs for two,
Now the world will find me with someone of my own,
The loneliness at last, is through,
If everyone had someone just like you,
Then everyone would feel the way I do,


Imagine having someone always by your side.
A bed for one can just be so cold.
Someone you can talk to when your hands are tied,
Someone there to have and hold.
There's nothing more rewarding to produce (when you're in love and you hear)
(I love you)


(Somebody to love)
There's nothing more rewarding to produce (when you're in love and you hear)

EVERYBODY'S TWISTIN'

Weeell,. they have to have something new,
A dance to do for recreation so someone started twistin',
A cat who was really hep, puts down a step
To new gyration soon, all the kids were twistin',
It didn't take long before the grown ups were trying it,
Who's who was buying it all over town,
You see them, a squirming and a worming and a twistin' around,
It spread like a fire, its place became a craze
That rocks the nation now, everybody's twistin'.

[musical interlude]

Well oh well oh well oh well, they had to have something new,
A dance to do for recreation so someone started twistin',

Who's who was buying it all over town,

EVERYTHING HAPPENS TO ME

I make a date for golf
You can bet you life it rains.
I try to give a party
And the guy upstairs complains.
I guess I'll go thru life;
Just catchin' colds and missin' trains,
Ev'rything happens to me.

I never miss a thing
I've had measles and the mumps.
And ev'ry time I play my ace
My partner always trumps.
I guess I'm just a fool;
Who never looks before he jumps,
Ev'rything happens to me.

At first my heart tho't;
You could break this jinx for me.
That love would turn the trick;
To end my despair.
But now, I just can't fool;
This head that thinks for me.
I've mortgaged all my castles in the air.

I've telegraphed and called;
I sent air mail special, too;
You answer was goodbye
And there was even postage due.
I fell in love just once;
And then it had to be with you,
Ev'rything happens to me.

FALLING IN LOVE WITH LOVE

I weave with brightly colored strings
To keep my mind off other things
So, ladies, let your fingers
dance
And keep your hands out of romance

Lovely witches
Let the stitches
Keep your fingers under
control
Cut the thread, but leave
The whole heart whole

Merrry maids can sew and sleep
Wives can only
sew and weep
Falling in love with love
Is falling for make believe
Falling in love with love
Is
playing the fool

Caring too much is juvenile fancy
Learning to trust is just
For children in school
I
fell in love with love one night
When the moon was full
I was unwise with eyes
Unable to see

I fell
in love with love
With love everlasting
But love fell out with me

FEELIN' KINDA SUNDAY

(Feelin' kinda Sunday, feelin' kinda Sunday, feelin' kinda Sunday)

Hey Mr. Sunlight, don't outshine your bright,
I'm talking out of my head, I'm so high on life.
Don't you know that it's gonna be a thousand and one day.
And I'm feeling kinda Sunday, (feeling kinda Sunday), feeling kinda Sunday.
Pardon my glow on, out on the high all night,
I see myself in a world right where I belong,
There's nothing can hold me down , it's a get up and run day.
And I'm feeling kinda Sunday (Sunday), feeling kinda Sunday (Sunday),
Feeling kinda Sunday, (Sunday).
The bells I hear in me say I should be getting up late,
Been traveling all morning long, but I'm still here in my room.
Not to give in to (in to) this feeling I'm on to, (I'm on to)
I'm looking at love from a window, to lighten the view,
It's just the beginning of happy go Sunday,
And I'm feeling kinda Sunday (feeling kinda Sunday),
Feeling kinda Sunday (feeling kinda Sunday),
Feeling kinda Sunday (feeling kinda Sunday).
(La, la la la la, la la la la, la la la la la la la,)

And I'm feeling kinda Sunday (Sunday), feeling kinda Sunday (Sunday)

FLY ME TO THE MOON (IN OTHER WORDS)

Fly me to the moon
Let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On a Jupiter and Mars
In other words, hold my hand
In other words, baby, kiss me

Fill my heart with song
And let me sing for ever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore
In other words, please be true
In other words, I love you

Fill my heart with song
Let me sing for ever more

FOLLOW ME

Through the clouds, gray with years, over hill, wet with tears,
To a world young and free, we shall fly, follow me.
April green, everywhere, April songs always there,
Come and hear, come and see, follow me.
To the tree where our hopes hang high,
To the dream that should never die,
Where our long lost tomorrows still are in the sweet bye and bye.
Time goes by, or do we, close your eyes, and you'll see
As we were, we can be, weep no more, follow me.
Follow me, follow me.

FOR A WHILE

Lost in day to day, turn another way
With a laugh, a kind hello, some small talk with those I know
I forget that I'm not over you for a while
A wave an easy grin, a smile to put them in
With other lives to listen to and some work I've got to do
I forget that I'm not over you for a while
Days go by with no empty feeling until I remember you're gone
People say to me, you need company
When you have some time to spend, drop around and meet a friend
They forget that I'm not over you for a while
They forget that I'm not over you for a while...

FRANK SINATRA
FOR ONCE IN MY LIFE

For once in my life I've got someone who needs me, someone I've needed so long
For once unafraid I can go where life leads me, and somehow I know I'll be strong
For once I can touch what my heart used to dream of
Long before I knew someone warm like you
Could make my dreams come true
For once in my life I won't let sorrow hurt me, not like it's hurt me before
For once I've got someone I know won't desert me, and I'm not alone anymore
For once I can say: This is mine you can't take it
As long as I've got love I know I can make it
For once in my life I've got someone who needs me

FRANK SINATRA
FOR THE GOOD TIMES

Don't look so sad, I know it's over
But life goes on and this old world will keep on a turnin'
Let's just be glad we had some time to spend together
There's no need to watch the bridges that we're burning

Lay your head upon my pillow
Hold your warm and tender body close to mine
Hear the whisper of the raindrops flowing soft against the window
And make believe you love me one more time
For the good times

I'll get along, you'll find another
And I'll be here if you should find you ever need me
Don't say a word about tomorrow or forever
There'll be time enough for sadness when you leave me

Lay your head upon my pillow
Hold your warm and tender body close to mine
Hear the whisper of the raindrops flowing soft against the window
And make believe you love me one more time
For the good times

(For the good times)

For the good times

FORGET DOMANI

Let's forget about tomorrow
Let's forget about tomorrow
Let's forget about tomorrow for tomorrow never comes

Domani, forget domani
Let's live for now and anyhow who needs domani?
The moonlight, let's share the moonlight
Perhaps together we will never be again

Ah, che luna, oh, che mare
With such a moon and such a sea and you and me
I get so dizzy when you're standing near
It's not the music that you hear
My heart is beating like a jungle drum
Let's take the minutes as they speed away
And hope it's true what people say
When you're in love, tomorrow never comes

Let's forget about tomorrow
Let's forget about tomorrow
Let's forget about tomorrow for tomorrow never comes

Let's forget about tomorrow
Let's forget about tomorrow
Let's forget about tomorrow for tomorrow never comes

Domani,* madonne *, domani!
With such a moon and such a sea and you and me
Let's take the minutes as they speed away
And hope it's true what people say
When you're in love tomorrow never comes

Let's forget about tomorrow
Let's forget about tomorrow
Let's forget about tomorrow for tomorrow never comes

Oh, let's forget about tomorrow
Let's forget about tomorrow
Let's forget about tomorrow for tomorrow never comes

FRANK SINATRA
FORGET TO REMEMBER

Pretend there is no silence, alone in your apartment
Don't notice things that once were hers,
Ignore the endless hours
Don't chase the dream that your hearts were after, children's laughter

Somehow believe in living, forget about the giving
Just tell your life it must go on
Run from yourself until you can't be found
But don't remember, refuse to remember
Forget to remember love

FRANK SINATRA
FROM PROMISE TO PROMISE

[music intro]

I sometimes wonder why people make promises they never intend to keep.
Not in big things, like love or elections, but in the things that count
The newspaper boy who says he will save an extra paper, and doesn't.
The laundry that tells you your suit will be ready on Thursday and it isn't.
Love, well yes, but like everything else, we go from day to day,
We move from promise to promise.
I've had a good many promises now, so I can wait for the harvest.
And some of them, they come about.

[music to the end]

FUGUE FOR TINHORNS

I got the horse right here, the name is Paul Revere.
And here's a guy that says that if all weather's clear,
Can do, can do, this guy says the horse can do.
If he says the horse can do, can do, can do.
I picked the Valentine, cause on the Morning Line,
The guy has got em figured at five to nine
But take the Epitaph, he went to buy a half,
He's got it cold in here in the Telegraph.
About Rivera's fight, I guess the sport's alright
Suppose it all depends if it rained last night.
I know it's Valentine, the morning works were fine
You know the jockey's brother is a friend of mine
But just a minute, boys, I got the feedback's choice,
It says the great grandfather was Aqua Poise.
I give you Paul Revere, and it's no bum steer
It's from a man right here that's real sincere
I picked my Valentine cause on the Morning Line
The guy has got em figured at five to nine
But take the Epitaph, he went to buy a half,
He's got it cold in here in the Telegraph.
Epitaph, Valentine, Paul Revere, I got the horse right here.

FRANK SINATRA
GENTLE ON MY MIND

It's knowin' that your door is always open
And your path is free to walk
That makes me tend to leave my sleepin' bag
Rolled up and stashed behind your couch
And it's knowin' I'm not shackled
By forgotten words and bonds
And the ink stains that have dried upon some line
That keeps you in the back roads
By the rivers of my memory
That keeps you ever gentle on my mind

It's not clingin' to the rocks and ivy
Planted on their columns now that bind me
Or something that somebody said because
They thought we fit together walkin'
It's just knowing that the world
Will not be cursing or forgiving
When I walk along some railroad track and find
That you're movin' on the back roads

By the rivers of my memory
And for hours you're just gentle on my mind

Though the wheat fields and the clothes lines
And the junkyards and the highways come between us
And some other woman's cryin' to her mother
'cause she turned and I was gone
I still might run in silence
Tears of joy might stain my face
And the summer sun might burn me till I'm blind
But not to where I cannot see
You walkin' on the back roads
By the rivers flowin' gentle on my mind

I dip my cup of soup back from a gurglin' cracklin' cauldron
In some train yard
My beard a rustlin' coal pile
And a dirty hat pulled low across my face
Through cupped hands 'round a tin can
I pretend to hold you to my breast and find
That you're waitin' from the back roads
By the rivers of my memory
Ever smilin', ever gentle on my mind

FRANK SINATRA
GIVE HER LOVE

Give her sunshine in your smile
Give her pleasure all the while
Turn her thoughts from clouds of gray
Give her strength to face each day

Give her laughter be her friend
Stay beside her till the end
But, in giving all else above,
Don't forget to give her love

[instrumental first two lines of second verse]

But, in giving all else above,
Don't forget to give her love

GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTIAN

When I was a leaner
I sought truth night and day.
I asked our Lord to help me
And he showed me the way.
Go, tell it on the mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere.
Go, tell it on the mountain:
that Jesus Christ is born
He made me a watchman
Upon the city wall,
and if I am a christian,
I am the least of all
Go, tell ...

GOIN' OUT OF MY HEAD

Well, I think I'm goin' out of my head
Yes, I think I'm goin' out of my head over you, over you

I want you, want you to want me, I need you so badly
I can't think of anything but you

Goin' out of my head over you
Out of my head over you
Out of my head, day and night
Night and day and night
Wrong or right
I must think of a way into your heart
There's no reason why my being so shy should keep us apart

And I think I'm goin' out of my head
'cause I can't explain the tears that I shed over you, over you

I see you each morning, but you just walk by me
You don't even know that I exist

Goin' out of my head over you
Out of my head over you
Out of my head, day and night
Night and day and night
Wrong or right, day and night
Night and day and night
Wrong or right, day and night
Night and day and night
Wrong or right

GOLDEN MOMENT

You're young for a golden moment, you sigh and it flies away
And then in the silent September, you dream of the music of May.
You're young for a shining hour, but soon it's remember when,
Take hold of that golden moment,
For once it's gone, it never comes back again.
(music interlude)
Take hold of that golden moment,
For once it is gone, it never comes back.
You cry, still it won't come back,
It's gone and never comes back again.

GOOD THING GOING

It started out like a song, we started quiet and slow with no surprise,
Then one morning I woke to realize we have a good thing going.
It's not that nothing went wrong, some angry moment of course, but just a few,
And only moments no more because we knew we had a good thing going.
And if I wanted too much, was that such a mistake?
Half the time you never wanted enough, oh wake up, I don't make that a crime,
And while it's going along, you take for granted some love will wear away,
We took for granted a lot, and still I say, it could have kept on growing,
Instead of just kept on, we had a good thing going, going, gone.

GOODBYE (SHE QUIETLY SAYS)

There is no great big ending, no sunset in the sky
There is no string ensemble, and she doesn't even cry
And just as I begin to say that we should make another try
She reaches out across the table looks at me and quietly says good bye
There is no big explosion, no tempest in the tea
The world does not stop turning round, there's no big tragedy
Sitting in a coffee shop with cheesecake and some apple pie
She reaches out across the table looks at me and quietly says good bye
Good bye, said so easily, Good bye, said so quietly
Good bye, good bye, good bye, just two always strangers avoid each other's eyes
One still make believing, one still telling lies, she tells me that I'm not to blame
But when I ask the reason why
She reaches out across the table looks at me and quietly says good bye
Good bye, said so easily. Good bye, said so quietly
Good bye, good bye, good bye
She reaches out across the table looks at me and quietly says good bye

GOODY GOODY

So you met someone who set you back on your heels goody, goody
You met someone and now you know how it feels goody, goody
You gave him your heart too, just as I gave mine to you
And he broke it in little pieces, now how do you do
You lie awake just singing the blues all night goody, goody
And you think that love's a barrel of dynamite
Hooray and hallelujah, you had it coming to y'a
Goody goody for him, goody goody for me
I hope your satisfied you rascal you, I hope your satisfied 'cause you got yours

GRANADA

Granada, I'm falling under your spell,
And if you could speak, what a fascinating tale you would tell.
Of an age the world has long forgotten,
Of an age that weaves a silent magic in Granada today.
The dawn in the sky greets the day with a sigh for Granada.
For she can remember the splendor that once was Granada.
It still can be found in the hills all around as I wander along,
Entranced by the beauty before me,
Entranced by a land full of flowers and song.
When day is done and the sun touch the sea in Granada,
I envy the blush of the snow clad Tierra Novada,
Soon it will welcome the stars
While a thousand guitars play a soft Carbinera.
Then moonlit Granada will live again,
The glory of yesterday, romantic and gay.
(musical interlude)
And soon it will welcome the stars
While a thousand guitars play a soft Carbinera.
Then moonlit Granada will live again,
The glory of yesterday, romantic, gay Granada.

[And these are the Spanish lyrics as sung by Placido Domingo:]

Granada tierra soniada por mi.
Mi cantarse vuelve hitana cuando es para ti.
Mi cantar hecho de fantasia.
Mi cantar flor de melancholia que yo te vengo adar.
Granada tierra ensangrentada de sangre de toros.
Mi bello conserva el embrujo de los ojos moros.
Resuello rebelde hita0no y lleno de flores, y beso tu boca de grana,
Tu blanco manzana que habla de amores.
Granada manola hitana de coplas preciosas.
No tengo otra cosa que darte que un rama de rosas.
De rosas de suave fragancia que alleje amargo la virgen morena.
Granada tu tierra esta llena de lindas mujeres de sangre del sol..

GUYS AND DOLLS

Benny: Nathan, I cannot believe that a number one businessman like you
Has fallen in love with his own fianc e.
Nathan: Alright, so Adelaide is my weakness, can't you be tolerant that I should have a weakness?
Because this weakness is a sad condition that affects guys all over the world?.
Look, what's playing at the Roxy?
I'll tell you what's playing in the Roxy.
A picture about a Minnesota man so in love with a Mississippi girl,
That he sacrifices everything and moves all the way to Malacksy.
That's what's playing at the Roxy.
Benny: What's in the daily news? I'll tell what's in the daily news.
Story about a guy who bought his wife a small ruby,
With what otherwise would have been his union dues.
That's what's on the daily news.
Nicely: What's happening all over? I'll tell you what is happening all over.
Guys sitting home before the television set who used to be something of a rover.
That is what's happening all over.
All: What is the thing that has licked 'em?
Nathan: And it looks like I am just another victim.

Yes sir, when you see a guy reach for stars in the sky,
You can bet that he's doing it for some doll
When you spot a john waiting out in the rain,
Chances are he's insane, as only a john can be for a jane.
When you meet a gent paying all kinds of rent
For a flat that could flatten the Taj Mahal,
Call it bad, call it funny, but it's better than even money,
That's the guy that's only doing it for some doll.
When you see a Joe, saving half of his dough,
You can bet they'll be minting it for some doll,
When a bum buys wine like a bum can't afford,
It's a cinch that the bum is under the thumb of some little broad
When you meet a mug lately out of the jug,
And he's still lifting platinum for the roll,
Call its hell, call it heaven, it's a probable twelve to seven
That's a guy that's only doing it for some doll.
(musical interlude)
When you see a sport and his cash has run short,
You can bet that he's been blowing it on some doll,
When a guy wears tails with the front gleaming white,
Who the heck do you think he's tickling pink on a Saturday night,
When the lazy slob gets a good steady job
And he smells from Vitalis and Barbasol
Call it dumb, call it clever, ah but you keep on forever,
That's a guy that's only doing it for some doll, some doll, some doll,
That's a guy that's only doing it for some doll.

HALLELUJAH, I LOVE HER SO

Let me tell 'bout a gal I know,
She's my baby and she lives next door.
Every morning 'fore the sun comes up,
She brings my coffee in my favorite cup.
That's why I know, yes, I know,
Hallelujah, I just love her so.
When I'm in trouble and I got no friend,
I know she'll go with me down to the end.
Everybody asks me how do I know,
I smile a damn and say she told me so.
That why I know, yes I know,
Hallelujah, I just love her so.
Now if I call her on the telephone,
Tell her that I'm all alone,
By the time I count from one to four,
I hear her on my door.
In the evening when the sun goes down,
When there ain't nobody hanging 'round,
She just kisses me, and then holds me tight.
And tells me, baby, everything's gonna be alright.
That's why I know, yes I know,
Hallelujah, I just love her so.
That's why I know, yes I know,
Hallelujah, I just, I love her so.
That's why I know, yes I know,
Hallelujah, I just love her so.

FRANK SINATRA
HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
Next year all our troubles will be
out of sight
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the yule tide gay
Next year all our troubles will be
miles away
Once again as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Will be near to us once more
Someday soon, we all will be together
If the Fates allow
Until then, we'll have to muddle through somehow
So have yourself a merry little Christmas now.

FRANK SINATRA
HELLO, DOLLY!

Hello Dolly, well hello Dolly,
It's so nice to have you back where you belong.
You're looking swell, Dolly, we can tell, Dolly,
You're still glowing, you're still crowing, you're still going strong.
We feel the room swaying 'cause the band's playing
One of your old favorite songs from way back when,
Take a rap, fellows, find her an empty lap, fellows,
Dolly'll never go away, Dolly'll never go away...

[instrumental by Louie Armstrong playing his saxophone]

Hello Sax, this is Francis, Louie,
It's so nice to see you back where you belong,
You're back on top, Louie, never stop, Louie,
You're still singing, you're still swinging, you're still going strong,
You get the room swaying when you start in playing
One of your great songs, your songs from way back when,
Blow your horn, Louie, sing up a great big song, Louie,
Promise you won't go away, promise you won't go away,
Promise you won't go away again.

[Louie Armstrong:]
Oh yeah!

FRANK SINATRA
HELLO, YOUNG LOVERS

Hello young lovers whoever you are
I hope your troubles are few
All my good wishes go with you tonight
I've been in love like you

Be brave young lovers and follow your star
Be brave and faithful and true
Cling very close to each other tonight
I've been in love like you

I know how it feels to have wings on your heels
And to fly down the street in a trance
You fly down a street on a chance that you'll meet
And you meet, not really by chance

Don't cry young lovers whatever you do
Don't cry because I'm alone
All of my mem'ries are happy tonight
I've had a love of my own

I've had a love of my own like yours
I've had a love of my own

FRANK SINATRA
HERE'S TO THE BAND

[Intro]
Hear that music playing, listen to what it's saying
Throughout the years I've made a lot of friends
Many became famous, most of them go nameless
But I dedicate this song to all of them
I've sung with the best and I've had it all
I've gone from neighborhood saloons to Carnegie Hall
I've been down and out and I've been in demand
But I wouldn't have made it without them, here's to the band!

Those magical notes, those musical pearls
I've sung with all the Counts, the Dukes, the Kings, and the Earls
And the experience, I have to say, was grand
But I wouldn't have made it without them, here's to the band!

[Bridge]
Strings soaring, horns boring
Drums pounding in my ear

To start at the ground and reach for the top
To have such a wonderful career, I just gotta stop
Stop and turn around to thank everyone that sits on the stand
cause I wouldn't have made it without them, here's to the band!

[instrumental]

Here's to those ladies and the gentlemen
Here's to the AF of M
I wouldn't have made it without them, here's to the band!
Here's to the band!

FRANK SINATRA
HERE'S TO THE LOSERS

Here's to those who love not too wisely, know not wisely, but too well
To the girl who sighs with envy when she hears that wedding bell
To the guy who'd throw a party if he knew someone to call
Here's to the losers, bless them all

Here's to those who drink their dinners when that lady doesn't show
To the girl who'll wait for kisses underneath that mistletoe
To the lonely summer lovers when the leaves begin to fall
Here's to the losers, a bless them all

Hey, Tom, Dick and Harry, come in out of the rain
Those torches you carry must be drowned in champagne

Here's the last toast of the evening, here's to those who still believe
All the losers will be winners, all the givers shall receive
Here's to trouble free tomorrows, may your sorrows all be small
Here's to the losers, bless them all

[Musical Interlude]

Hey, Tom, Dick and Harry, come in out of that rain
Those torches you carry must be drowned in champagne

Here's the last toast of the evening, here's to those who still believe
All the losers will be winners, all the givers shall receive
Here's to trouble free tomorrows, may your sorrows all be small
Here's to the losers, here's to the losers, here's to the losers
Bless them all!

FRANK SINATRA
HEY LOOK, NO CRYING

Hey, look, no crying, though she has one foot out the door
I should be crying, it ought to hurt a little more
I should resent her, try to prevent her, whatever for?

Hey, look, I knew it, she's not the type to hang around
Some day she was bound to go
With that fact in mind, my tears were never apropos

Hey. look, no sorrow, I have been luckier than most
And if tomorrow I still feel haunted by her ghost
I will remember how I loved her and how it was
Who needs crying? With those memories in tow
Me, I'm flying, I got memories to show

Hey, look, no crying
Just Goodbye , I'm letting go

FRANK SINATRA
HOW INSENSITIVE (INSENSATEZ)

How insensitive I must have seemed when she told me that she loved me
How unmoved and cold I must have seemed when she told me so sincerely

Why she must have asked, did I just turn and stare in icy silence?
What was I to say? What can you say when a love affair is over?

Now she's gone away and I'm alone with a mem'ry of her last look
Vague and drawn and sad I see it still, all her heartbreak in that last look

[in Portuguese:]
Ah, porque vocy foi fraco assim
Assim tao desalmado

What was I to do? What can one do when a love affair is over?

FRANK SINATRA
HOW LITTLE IT MATTERS HOW LITTLE WE KNOW

How little we know
How much to discover
What chemical forces flow
From lover to lover

How little we understand what touches of that tingle
That sudden explosion when two tingles intermingle

Who cares to define
What chemistry this is
Who cares with your lips on mine
How ignorant bliss is

So long as you kiss me (and) the world around us shatters
How little it matters how little we know
(How little we know, how little we know,...)

FRANK SINATRA
I BELIEVE I'M GONNA LOVE YOU

As the morning casts a thousand bits of sunlight,
And they shine like diamonds on the morning dew,
I believe that every single one is mine alone to see,
And I believe I'm gonna love you.
If it seems that there are special stars for lovers,
And we see them scattered cross midnight blue,
I believe that out of all this world, there meant for you and me.
I believe I'm gonna love you.
I'll take you to a magic place where no one's ever been,
Where there's carpets made of flowers, and music in the wind.
If you wonder why I'm giving you these treasures,
Because you're like no one else I ever knew,
I believe that as we walk through time, the best is yet to come,
As I believe I'm gonna love you.
As I believe I'm gonna love you.

FRANK SINATRA
I BELIEVE IN YOU

You have the cool clear eyes of a seeker of wisdom and truth,
Yet there's that upturned chin and the grin of impetuous youth,
I believe in you, I believe in you.
I hear the sound of good solid judgment whenever you talk,
Yet there's that bold, brave, spring of the tiger that quickens your walk,
I believe in you, I believe in you.
And when my faith in my fellow man all but falls apart,
I've but to feel your hand grasping mine, and I take heart,
I take heart to see the cool clear eyes of a seeker of wisdom and truth,
Yet there's that slam, bang, tang, reminiscent of gin and Vermouth,
Now I believe in you, I believe in you.

[musical interlude]

I believe in you, I believe in you, I believe, I believe in you.

FRANK SINATRA
I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M LOSING YOU

Is this the way our romance ends,
I got the message when you said we could be friends,
My love was true, I can't believe I'm losing you.
We played a game, of give and take,
But I stopped playing when my heart began to break,
What can I do, I can't believe I'm losing you.
Wish I could erase every little phase of love that's in the heart of me,
Every little dream, every little theme, will always be a part of me.
There's nothing left for me to do,
We've passed the point of no return, and now we're through,
It's still too new, I can't believe I'm losing you.
It's still too new, I can't believe I'm losing you.

FRANK SINATRA
I CAN'T STOP LOVING YOU

I can't stop lovin' you, so I've made up my mind
To live in memory of old lonesome times
I can't stop wantin' you, it's useless to say
So I'll just live my life in dreams of yesterday
Those happy hours that we once knew
Though long ago, yeah they make me feel blue,
They say that time heals a broken heart
But time has stood still since we've been apart
I can't stop lovin' you, yes so I've made up my mind
To live in memory of old lonesome times
I can't stop wantin' you, it's so useless to say
So I'll just live my life, live my life in dreams of yesterday.

FRANK SINATRA
I CONCENTRATE ON YOU

Whenever skies look gray to me and trouble begins to brew
Whenever the winter winds become too strong
I concentrate on you

When fortune cries Nay, nay to me
And people declare You're through
Whenever the blues become my only songs
I concentrate on you

On your smile, so sweet, so tender
When at first my kiss you do decline
On the light in your eyes when you surrender
And once again our arms intertwine

And so when wise men say to me
That love's young dream never comes true
To prove that even the wise men can be wrong
I concentrate on you

[instrumental to end]

FRANK SINATRA
I GET A KICK OUT OF YOU

My story is much too sad to be told,
But practically everything leaves me totally cold.
The exception I know is the case
When I'm out on a quiet spree,
Fighting vainly the old ennui,
And I suddenly turn and see your fabulous face.

I get no kick from champagne.
Mere alcohol doesn't thrill me at all.
So tell me why should it be true
That I get a kick out of you?

Some, they may go for cocaine.
I'm sure that if I took even one sniff
It would bore me terrifically, too.
Yet I get a kick out of you.

I get a kick every time I see
You standing there before me.
I get a kick though it's clear to see
You obviously do not adore me.

I get no kick in a plane.
Flying too high with some gal in the sky
Is my idea of nothing to do.
Yet I get a kick um you give me a boot I get a kick out of you.

FRANK SINATRA
I HAD THE CRAZIEST DREAM

I had the craziest dream, last night yes I did, I never dreamed it could be
Yet there you were in love with me
I found (saw) your lips next (close) to mine so I kissed you (them)
And you didn't mind it at all
When I'm awake, such a break never happens, how long can a guy go on dreaming
If there's a chance that you care, then please say that you do
Say it and make my craziest dream come true

FRANK SINATRA
I HADN'T ANYONE TILL YOU

I hadn't anyone till you, I was a lonely one till you
I used to lie awake and wonder, if there could be
A someone in this wide world, just made for me
And now I see I had to save my love for you
I never gave my love till you
And through my lonely heart demanding it, Cupid took a hand in it
I hadn't anyone till you
And through my lonely heart demanding it, Cupid took a hand in it
I hadn't anyone till you

FRANK SINATRA
I HAVE DREAMED

I have dreamed that your arms are lovely
And I have dreamed what a joy you'll be
I have dreamed ev'ry word you'll whisper
When you're close, close to me

How you look in the glow of evening
I have dreamed and enjoyed the view
In these dreams I've loved you so
That by now I think I know
What it's like to be loved by you
I will love being loved by you

[instrumental]

In these dreams I've loved you so
That by now I think I know
What it's like to be loved by you
I will love being loved by you

FRANK SINATRA
I HEARD THE BELLS ON CHRSITMAS DAY

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

I thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along th' unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

And in despair I bowed my head
There is no peace on earth, I said,
For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
With peace on earth, good will to men.

Till ringing, singing on its way
The world revolved from night to day,
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

FRANK SINATRA
I LEFT MY HEART IN SAN FRANCISCO

The loveliness of Paris seems somehow sadly gay,
The glory that was Rome is just another day,
I've been terribly alone and forgotten in Manhattan,
I'm going home to my city by the bay.

[Chorus:]
I left my heart in San Francisco, high on a hill it calls to me
To be where little cable cars climb halfway to the stars.
The morning fog may chill the air, I don't care.
My love waits there in San Francisco, above the blue and windy sea,
When I come home to you, San Francisco, your golden sun will shine for me.

FRANK SINATRA
I LIKE THE SUNRISE

I like the sunrise 'cause it brings a new day,
I like a new day, it brings new hope, they say.
I like the sunrise blazing in the new start,
Night time is weary, oh and so am I.
Every evening I wish upon a star
That my brand new bright tomorrow isn't very far.
When that heavy blue curtain of night is raised up high,
Out of sight, I like the sunrise, oh heavenly day,
I like the sunrise, I hope it lights for me

[Full musical interlude]

Every evening I wish upon a star
That my brand new bright tomorrow isn't very far.
When that heavy blue curtain of night is raised up high,
Way out of sight, I like the sunrise, so heavenly to see,
I like the sunrise, I hope it lights for me.
I hope it lights for me.

FRANK SINATRA
I LIKE TO LEAD WHEN I DANCE

A little voice, keeps talking to me from way down deep inside,
What does this voice, keep saying to me? It says: pass this affair and pass it wide.
You may be a puzzle, but I like the way the parts fit.
Still that little voice says: Go get your track shoes put them on and git.
We could go the distance, and find us romance,
I like your persistence, your style and your stance.
There's only one problem, the tiniest problem, I like to lead when I dance.
Your eyes do the speaking, they talk with each glance,
My will power's creaking, I might take a chance.
And though you're the charmer who could bend my armor
I like to lead when I dance.
I like to steer the car whenever I drive, and hold the door ajar when we arrive.
So if it's decided that this is romance, my sweet, I'll repeat in advance,
I like to lead when I dance.

[musical interlude]

I like to lead when I dance.
When Adam bit the fruit, as fashions were then
He got that fig leaf suit, for which. Amen.
So if it's decided I'm wearing the pants, then Eve, I'd say we've got romance
I like to lead, I set the speed, I like to lead when I dance.
When I dance, when I dance, when I dance.

FRANK SINATRA
I LOVE MY WIFE

My thoughts may stray
My eyes may roam
The neighbor's grass may seem much greener
Than the grass right here at home

If pretty girls excite me
Well, that's life
But just in case, you didn't know
I love my wife

My mind at times
May dwell on sex
If someone's rating dreams
Then most of mine I guess are double X

So dimpled knees delight me
Well, that's life
But just in case, you hadn't heard
I love my wife

Like bait that wriggles
And it makes catfish bite
A lady jiggles
And my eyes gotta light
Upon so sweet a sight

And if I shake
Break out in spots
Don't fret, it's not swine fever dear
Your swine has merely got the hots

If rosy lips invite me
Well, that's life
But just in case, you couldn't guess
I love my wife

My mind at times
May dwell on sex
If someone's rating dreams
Then most of mine I guess are double X

If rosy lips invite me
Well, that's life
But just in case, you couldn't guess
Or hadn't heard
Or didn't know
I love my wife
I love my wife
I love my wife

mmm
I love my wife

FRANK SINATRA
I LOVE YOU

I love you. I love you.
Is all that I can say.
I love you. I love you.
The same old worlds I'm saying in the same old way.

I love you. I love you.
Three words that are divine.
And now, my dear, I'm waitin' to hear
The words that will make you mine.

Little girl, I love you.
Can't you see I love you.
I love you. Can't you see I love you.

I love you. I love you.
Three words that are divine.
And now, my dear, I'm waitin' to hear
The words that make you mine.

FRANK SINATRA
I LOVED HER

She was Boston, I was Vegas,
She was crepe suzette, I was pie,
She was lectures, I was movies, but I loved her.
She was Mozart, I was Macy,
She was afternoon tea, I was saloon,
She was Junior League, I was Dodgers,
But I loved her morning, night and noon.
Opposites attract, the wise men claim,
Still I wish that we had been a little more the same.
It might have been a shoot out war,
If we had know each other more.
She was polo, I was race track,
She was museum, I was G.P.
She did her best to change me
Though she never never knew quite how,
But I loved her, almost as much as I do now.

[piano interlude]

She was Wall Street, I was pawn shop,
She was French champagne, I was beer,
She knew much more that I did
But there was one thing she didn't know,
That I loved her, 'cause I never never told her so

FRANK SINATRA
I NEVER KNEW

I always thought that I'd prefer single blessed ness
Thought that I'd like to stay free
I never thought my time would come to marry,
No wedding bells for me, I've changed my mind after all,
You are the one made me fall, for...
I used to smile at all the songs that were popular,
Nothing but love in each song,
I used to think those kind of songs were foolish,
Now I admit I'm wrong.
Love songs are part of my plan, show me the minister man, for...

I never knew I could love anybody,
Honey, like I'm loving you;
I couldn't realize what a pair of eyes and a baby smile could do.
I can't sleep, I can't eat,
I never knew a single soul could be so sweet,
I never knew I could love anybody,
Honey, like I'm loving you.

FRANK SINATRA
I ONLY HAVE EYES FOR YOU

My love must be a kind of blind love
I can't see anyone but you
And dear, I wonder if you find love
An optical illusion, too?

Are the stars out tonight?
I don't know if it's cloudy or bright
'Cause I only have eyes for you, dear
The moon may be high
But I can't see a thing in the sky
'Cause I only have eyes for you.

I don't know if we're in a garden
Or on a crowded avenue
You are here, so am I
Maybe millions of people go by
But they all disappear from view
And I only have eyes for you

FRANK SINATRA
I SEE IT NOW

That year in Oakland High when I was seventeen
The grass from there to San Jose was high and cool and green
I see it now

Too brash and young was I to know what time could mean
The old Acacia, long cut down, was felt but never seen
I see it now

That world I knew is lost to me
Loves have come and gone

The years go racing by, I live as best I can
And all at once I know it means the making of a man
I see it now
I see it now
I see it now

FRANK SINATRA
I SING THE SONGS (I WRITE THE SONGS)

I've been alive forever, and I sang the very first song,
I put the words and the melodies together, I am music and I sing this song:
I sing the songs that make the whole world sing,
I sing the songs of love and special things,
I sing the songs that make the young girls cry,
I sing the songs, I sing the songs.

My home is deep within you, and I've got my own place in your soul,
Now when I look out through your eyes,

I am young again even though I'm growing old.
I sing the songs that make the whole world sing,
I sing the songs of love and special things,
I sing the songs that make the young girls cry,
I sing the songs, I sing the songs.

My music makes you dance, it gets your spirit to take a chance,
And if the music's from the heart, it's a real fine way to start,
It's from me, it's to you, it's from you, it's to me,
It's a world wide symphony.

I sing the songs that make the whole world sing,
I sing the songs of love and special things,
I sing the songs that make the young girls cry,
I sing the songs, I sing the songs.
I sing and the whole world sings,
I sing the songs of love and special things,
I sing the songs that make the young girls cry,
I sing the songs, I sing the songs. I am music, and I sing the songs.

FRANK SINATRA
I WANNA BE AROUND

I wanna be around to pick up the pieces when somebody breaks your heart,
Somebody twice as smart as I.
Somebody who will swear to be true like you used to do with me,
Who'll leave you to learn that misery loves company, wait and see.
I wanna be around to see how he does it when he breaks your heart to bits,
Let's see if the puzzle fits, so fine,
And that's when I'll discover that revenge is sweet,
As I sit there applauding from a front row seat,
When somebody breaks your heart like you broke mine.
That's when I'll discover that revenge is sweet,
As I sit there applauding from a front row seat,
When somebody breaks your heart like you broke mine,
Like you, like you broke mine.

FRANK SINATRA
I WILL DRINK THE WINE

Someone said, drink the water, but I will drink the wine.
Someone said, take a poor man, rich don't have a dime.
So fool yourselves if you will, I just haven't got the time.
If you can drink the water, I will drink the wine.
Someone gave me some small flowers, I held them in my hand.
I looked at them for several hours, I didn't understand.
So fool yourselves if you will, you can hold out your hand,
I'll give back your flowers, and I will take the land.
And I will drink the wine.
Sometimes I'm very very lonely, there's only me to care.
And when I'm very very lonely, I want someone to share,
I'm going to drink the wine, I'm gonna take my time,
And believe in a world that is mine.
Someone gave me flowers, held them in my hand.
Looked at them for many hours, didn't understand.
Go on and fool yourselves if you will, you can hold out your hand,
I'll give back your flowers, and I will take the land.
And I will drink the wine, and I will take the land.
I will drink the wine.

FRANK SINATRA
I WILL WAIT FOR YOU

The clock will tick away the hours one by one
And then the time will come when all the waiting's done
the time when you return and find me here and run........
(Straight to my waiting arms)

FRANK SINATRA
I WISH YOU LOVE

Goodbye, no use leading with our chins, this is where our story ends,
Never lovers ever friends.
Goodbye, let our hearts call it a day, but before you walk away,
I sincerely want to say.

I wish you bluebirds in the spring, to give your heart a song to sing,
And then a kiss, but more than this, I wish you love.
And if you like lemonade to cool you in some lazy glade,
I wish you health, and more than wealth, I wish you love.
My breaking heart and I agree that you and I could never be,
So with my best, my very best, I set you free.
I wish you shelter from the storm, a cozy fire to keep you warm,
Most of all, when snowflakes fall, I wish you love.

[musical interlude]

I wish you shelter from the storm, a cozy fire to keep you warm,
Most of all, when snowflakes fall, hot time, I wish you love.
All kinds of love, a whole gang of love.

FRANK SINATRA
I WISHED ON THE MOON

Every night was long and gloomy, shadows gathered in the air
No one ever listened to me, no one wondered did I care
None in all the world to love me, none to count that stars that hung
Then the moon came out above me and I saw that it was young

I wished on the moon for something I never knew
Wished on the moon for more than I ever knew
A sweeter rose, a softer sky
An April day that would not dance away

I begged of a star to throw me a beam or two
Wished on a star and asked for a dream or two
I looked for ev'ry loveliness, it all came true
I wished on the moon for you

FRANK SINATRA
I WON'T DANCE

I won't dance, don't ask me
I won't dance, don't ask me
I won't dance, Madame, with you
My heart won't let my feet do things that they should do

You know what?, you're lovely
You know what?, you're so lovely
And, oh, what you do to me
I'm like an ocean wave that's bumped on the shore
I feel so absolutely stumped on the floor

When you dance, you're charming and you're gentle
'specially when you do the Continental
But this feeling isn't purely mental
For, heaven rest us, I am not asbestos

and that's why
I won't dance, why should I?
I won't dance, how could I?
I won't dance, merci beaucoup
I know that music leads the way to romance,
So if I hold you in arms I won't dance


I won't dance, don't ask me,
I won't dance, don't ask me
I won't dance, Madame, with you
My heart won't let me feet do things that they want to do

You know what?, you're lovely,
Ring a ding ding, you're lovely
And, oh, what you do to me
I'm like an ocean wave that's bumped on the shore
I feel so absolutely stumped on the floor

When you dance, you're charming and you're gentle
'specially when you do the Continental
But this feeling isn't purely mental
For, heaven rest us, I am not asbestos

and that's why
I won't dance, I won't dance
I won't dance, merci beaucoup
I know that music leads the way to romance
So if I hold you in arms I won't dance!!

FRANK SINATRA
I WOULD BE IN LOVE (ANYWAY)

If I lived the past over, saw today from yesterday
I would be in love anyway
If I knew that you'd leave me, if I knew you wouldn't stay
I would be in love anyway
Sometimes I think, think about before
Sometime I think, if I knew then what I know now
I don't believe I'd ever change somehow
Though you'll never be with me, and there are no words to say
I'll still be in love anyway
If I knew then what I know now, I don't believe I'd ever change
Somehow if I knew then what I know now
I don't believe I'd ever change somehow

FRANK SINATRA
I WOULDN'T TRADE CHRISTMAS

I wouldn't trade Christmas, no no, never would I,
Wouldn't trade Christmas, I love you the best,
I wouldn't trade Christmas, no no, never would I,
Wouldn't trade Christmas, I love you the best.
It's time for the hollys of fun, and the folly or all of that jolly jazz,
The people are glowing, the sand is now howing, each window is showing it has
All the latest in choicing, the daddy invoicing and all that razzle that does,
But I wouldn't trade Christmas, wouldn't trade Christmas for New Year's Day,
Thanksgiving, Holloween and the rest. Christmas we love you the best.
I wouldn't trade, no, no. never would I, wouldn't trade Christmas, I love you the best.
The traffic gets poky, the turkey gets smoky, and all of that holy stuff,
The people are shopping for things they'll be swapping like filigree boxes of snuff,
Though you pour the hot toddy, to force everybody, though half of the toddy's enough,
I wouldn't trade Christmas, wouldn't trade Christmas for Father's Day or Mother's,
Valentine, and the rest, Christmas we love you the best.
The jingle fell jingle you feel the old tingle, you buy the first single scene.
The idea is clever but subways will never quite handle that huge evergreen.
And the old office party, with Stanley and Molly keep drinking until they turn green.
But I wouldn't trade Christmas, wouldn't trade Christmas for Labor Day, or Easter, Washington and the
rest, Christmas we love you the best.

FRANK SINATRA
I'LL BE SEEING YOU

[opening instrumental]

I'll be seeing you in all the old, familiar places
That this heart of mine embraces all day through
In that small caf , the park across the way
The children's carousel, the chestnut tree, the wishing well

I'll be seeing you in ev'ry lovely summer's day
In everything that's light and gay
I'll always think of you that way
I'll find you in the morning sun and when the night is new
I'll be looking at the moon but I'll be seeing you

[instrumental to end]

FRANK SINATRA
I'LL FOLLOW MY SECRET HEART

I'll follow my secret heart my whole life through,
I'll keep all my dreams apart till one comes true.
No matter what price is paid, what stars may fade above,
I'll follow my secret heart, till I find love.

FRANK SINATRA
I'LL NEVER SMILE AGAIN

(I'll never smile again until I smile at you)
(I'll never laugh again) What good would it do?

For tears would fill my eyes
My heart would realize
That our romance is through

(I'll never love again, I'm so in love with you)
(I'll never thrill again to somebody new)

Within my heart
I know I will never start
(To smile again)
Until I smile at you

[instrumental]

Within my heart
I know I will never start
(To smile again)
Until I smile at you

[very brief instrumental]

(Until I smile at you)

FRANK SINATRA
I'LL ONLY MISS HER WHEN I THINK OF HER

I'll only miss her when I think of her
And I'll think of her all the time
Likely I'll spend my days hearing her turn of a phrase
Things I found hard to praise, right now, would seem sublime

The truth is

I'll only miss her when some stranger laughs
'cause it's still her laugh my heart hears
Maybe in time, I guess, the longing will grow the slightest bit less
And there will be moments, yes, when it disappears
I'll bet I forget her completely
In about a hun dred years

Mm, mm, mm, mm

FRANK SINATRA
I'M BEGINNING TO SEE THE LIGHT

I never cared much for moonlight skies, I never wink at fireflies,
But now that the stars are in your eyes, I'm beginning to see the light.
I never went for after glow, candle light on the mistletoe,
But now when you turn the lamp down low, I'm beginning to see the light.
Used to ramble through the park, shadow boxing in the dark,
Then you came and caused a spark, that's a four alarm fire now.
I never made love by lantern shine, I never saw rainbows on my wine,
But now that your lips are burning mine, I'm beginning to see the light.

FRANK SINATRA
I'M GETTING SENTIMENTAL OVER YOU

Never thought I'd fall, but when I hear you call,
I'm getting sentimental over you.
Things you say and do just thrill me through and through,
I'm getting sentimental over you.
I thought I was happy I could live without love,
Now I must admit, love is all I'm thinking of.
Won't ypu please be kind, and just make up your mind
That you'll be sweet and gentle, be gentle with me
Cause I'm getting sentimental over you.

FRANK SINATRA
I'M GONNA MAKE IT ALL THE WAY

I cried the day you left me and I still don't know what kept me
From jumping off the highest bridge I know.
My poor heart was breaking, I felt lower than a snake in,
That is just about the lowest you can go.
I finally stopped my drinking, fell down and started thinking,
That it's no pay to relive yesterday.
I tried to hide my sorrow, started living for tomorrow,
I think I'm gonna make it all the way.
You hurt me and abused me, took advantage of and used me,
I swear it almost made a wreck of me.
When I needed your devotion, you were never in the notion
You were cold as any iceberg in the sea,
Love to you had lost its splendor, my pride went out the window,
When you left me, I kept begging you to stay.

But now my heart is healing, and I got a real good feeling,
I think I'm gonna make it all the way.
My troubles came in bunches, I kept rolling with the punches,
You'd shoot me down and I'd get back again.
I tried to be your lover, in no time I did discover
Your loving cup was not for me to win.
Your kisses weren't the same but I kept kinda fan the flame,
Till I just couldn't take another day,
You can't blame me for trying, now I stopped my crying,
I think I'm gonna make it all the way.
I tried my best to take it, but my smiling face didn't make it,
'Cause in my heart, I knew there was no hope,
Each place reminded me of the memories of your love,
I've come right to the end of my rope.
That's when I met my new friend, she's just as much a true friend,
Treats me like a lover here to stay.
And it's working out so well now, you can go to hell now.
This time I'm gonna make it all the way.
Yes, this time I'll make it all the way.
Yes. I think I'm gonna make it all the way,
Baby, get out of my way.

FRANK SINATRA
I'M GONNA SIT RIGHT DOWN AND WRITE MYSELF A LETTER

I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter
And make believe it came from you
I'm gonna write words, oh, so sweet
They're gonna knock me off my feet
A lotta kisses at the bottom
I'll be glad I got 'em

I'm gonna smile and say I hope that you're much better
And then I'll close the way I do
I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter
And make believe that it came from you

I'm gonna smile and say I hope that you're much better
The I'll close with love the way you do
I'm gonna sit right down and knock out a very large letter
And make believe it came
Although it's not the same
I'll make believe it came from you

FRANK SINATRA
I'M NOT AFRAID

One afternoon I came to hear
You sing a soft song into my ear
Who would have thought quite by chance
We might engage in a loving dance?

Coming together, coming apart
Lost in diversions, dancing stars
Caught in the quiet, off on our own
Coming together, standing alone

Are you afraid?
I'm not afraid

What about you, what about me?
Two years from now where will we be?
Each of us gone our separate ways
Lost in a headlong passage of days

Maybe we might give love a try
Extending the moment before goodbye
And for a gentle moment in time
We'll take what pleasure people can find

Are you afraid?
I'm not afraid

What is for real, what is false?
All of us seem to be caught in a waltz
Turning around, turning again
When will the dancing ever end?

As for us, you and me
Our eyes are open, we can see
Both of us know where we've been
Why must we both go dancing again?

[brief instrumental]

Come join the dancing, come join the waltz
Don't look too closely at my faults
Why can't I die here in your arms?
Safe from the night and safe from the dawn

Back to the nothing that had no name
Back to the nowhere from where I came
Don't worry of me, I know what I am
Where I'm goin' and where I've been

I'm not afraid!
I'm not afraid!
No, I'm not afraid!

FRANK SINATRA
I'VE BEEN TO TOWN

I've been to town, I've walked the highways and in the suburbs too.
I've done somethings I never thought I'd ever do.
Now as I stand here looking down at you, you ask me why it is I frown.
I guess it's 'cause I've been to town.
I've been to town beyond the boulevard and down the beach,
I've learned some things that only time can teach,
For instance, love is more than just a speech,
It's got to find a common ground,
I know 'cause I've been to town.
Don't tell me any more, I can't waste any more years,
I've seen my image in your eyes,
Dissolve in disappointed tears.
I've been to town, you ask me do I know the Milky Way,
I do, and furthermore I'd like to say
It isn't milky white, it's dingy gray,
Especially when your world breaks down,
I know because I've been to town.

FRANK SINATRA
I'VE GOT MY LOVE TO KEEP ME WARM

I've got my love to keep me warm, off with my overcoat, off with my glove,
I need no overcoat, I'm burning with love.
My heart's on fire, the flame goes higher, but I can weather the storm,
What do I care how much it may storm, I've got my love to keep me warm.

FRANK SINATRA
I'VE GOT YOU UNDER MY SKIN

I've got you under my skin.
I've got you deep in the heart of me.
So deep in my heart that you're really a part of me.
I've got you under my skin.
I'd tried so not to give in.
I said to myself: this affair never will go so well.
But why should I try to resist when, baby, I know so well
I've got you under my skin?

I'd sacrifice anything come what might
For the sake of havin' you near
In spite of a warnin' voice that comes in the night
And repeats, repeats in my ear:
Don't you know, little fool, you never can win?
Use your mentality, wake up to reality.
But each time that I do just the thought of you
Makes me stop before I begin
'Cause I've got you under my skin.

[Musical interlude]

I would sacrifice anything come what might
For the sake of havin' you near
In spite of the warning voice that comes in the night
And repeats how it yells in my ear:
Don't you know, little fool, you never can win?
Why not use your mentality step up, wake up to reality?
But each time I do just the thought of you
Makes me stop just before I begin
'Cause I've got you under my skin.
Yes, I've got you under my skin.

FRANK SINATRA
I'VE NEVER BEEN IN LOVE BEFORE

I've never been in love before, now all at once it's you, it's you forevermore.
I've never been in love before, I thought my heart was safe, I thought I knew the score.
But this is wine that's all too strange and strong, I'm full of foolish songs.
And out my song must pour, so please forgive this helpless haze I'm in,
I've really never been in love before.

FRANK SINATRA
IF

If they made me a king I'd be but a slave to you
If I had everything I'd still be a slave to you
If I ruled the night, stars and moon so bright
Still I'd turn for light to you

If the world to me bowed yet humbly I'd flee to you
If my friends were a crowd I'd turn in my need to you
If I ruled the earth what would life be worth
If I hadn't the right to you

If I ruled the night, stars and moon so bright
Still I'd turn for light to you

If the world to me bowed yet humbly I'd flee to you
If my friends were a crowd I'd turn in my need to you
If I ruled the earth what would life be worth
If I hadn't the right to you

FRANK SINATRA
IF I HAD YOU

I could show the world how to smile
I could be glad all of the while
I could change the gray skies to blue
If I had you

I could leave the old days behind
Leave all my pals, I'd never mind
I could start my life anew
If I had you

I could climb a snow capped mountain
Sail the mighty ocean wide
I could cross the burning desert
If I had you by my side

I could be a king, dear, uncrowned
Humble or poor, rich or renowned
There is nothin' I couldn't do
If I had you

[instrumental first two verses]


I could climb a snow capped mountain
Sail the mighty ocean wide
I could cross the burnin' desert
If I had you by my side

I could be a king uncrowned
Humble or poor, rich or renowned
There is nothin' I couldn't do
If I had you

Baby, if I had you

FRANK SINATRA
IF I SHOULD LOSE YOU

If I should lose you, the stars would fall from the sky
If I should lose you, leaves would wither and die
The birds in May time they'd sing a mournful refrain
And I would wander around hating the sound of rain
With you beside me, the rose would bloom in the snow
With you beside me, no winds of winter would blow
I gave you my love and I was living a dream
But living would seem in vain if I
(Hating the rain if I)
(All is in vain if I)
If I ever lost you

FRANK SINATRA
IF YOU GO AWAY

If you go away on this summer day,
Then you might as well take the sun away;
All the birds that flew in the summer sky,
When our love was new and our hearts were high;
When the day was young and the night was long,
And the moon stood still for the night bird's song.
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away.
But if you stay, I'll make you a day
Like no day has been, or will be again;
We'll sail the sun, we'll ride on the rain,
We'll talk to the trees and worship the wind.
Then if you go, I'll understand,
Leave me just enough love to fill up my hand,
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away.
If you go, as I know you will, you must tell the world to stop turning
Till you return again, if you ever do, for what good is love without loving you,
Can I tell you now, as you turn to go, I'll be dying slowly till the next hello,
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away.
But if you stay, I'll make you a night
Like no night has been, or will be again.
I'll sail on your smile, I'll ride on your touch,
I'll talk to your eyes that I love so much.
But if you go, go, I won't cry,
Though the good is gone from the word goodbye,
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away.
If you go away, as I know you must,
There'll be nothing left in the world to trust,
Just an empty room, full of empty space,
Like the empty look I see on your face.
I'd have been the shadow of your shadow
If I thought it might have kept me by your side.
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away.

FRANK SINATRA
IF YOU NEVER COME TO ME

There's no use of a moonlight glow or the peaks where winter snows
What's the use of the waves that break in the cool of the evening
What is the evening without you, it's nothing
It may be you will never come, if you never come to me
What's the use of my wonderful dreams, and why would they need me
Where would they lead me without you? To nowhere
What's the use of my wonderful dreams, and why would they need me
Where would they lead me without you? To nowhere.

FRANK SINATRA
IMAGINATION

Imagination is funny, it makes a cloudy day sunny
Makes a bee think of honey just as I think of you

Imagination is crazy, your whole perspective gets hazy
Starts you asking a daisy What to do, what to do?

Have you ever felt a gentle touch and then a kiss
And then and then, find it's only your imagination again?
Oh, well

Imagination is silly, you go around willy nilly
For example I go around wanting you
And yet I can't imagine that you want me, too

[instrumental 0:32 to end]

FRANK SINATRA
IN THE BLUE OF EVENING

In the blue of evening when you appear close to me, dear one,
There in the dusk we'll share a dream reverie,
In the blue of evening while crickets call and stars are falling,
There 'neath the midnight sky you'll come to me.
In the shadows of the night we'll stand, I'll touch your hand.
And then, softly as your lovely eyes entreat, our lips will meet again.
In the blue of evening, night winds above whisper I love you,
There will we find romance in the blue of evening.

FRANK SINATRA
IN THE COOL, COOL, COOL OF THE EVENING

Sue wants a barbecue, Sam wants to boil a ham,
Grace votes for bouillabaisse too
Jake wants a weinie bake, steak and the layer cake,
And he'll get a tummy ache too.
We'll rent a tent or a teepee, let the town crier cry.
And if it's on a ditty, this is what I'll reply.

In the cool, cool, cool of the evening, tell 'em I'll be there,
In the cool, cool, cool of the evening, better save a chair.
Oh, when the party's a getting a glow on, and singing fills the air,
In the shank of the night when the doing's all right,
You can tell 'em I'll be there.
(musical interlude)
Oh when the party's a getting a glow on, and the singing fills the air,
In the shank of the night when the doing's all right,
You can tell them I'll be there.
In the shank of the night when the doing's all right,
You can tell them I'll be there.

FRANK SINATRA
IN THE SHADOW OF THE MOON

In the shadow of the moon, there's a bright and shining place
Where two hearts can learn to share love beyond all time and space.
Though the candle barely glows through the haze,
Touch my hand, what it plays.
Till a woman and a man learn to think and feel as one,
They must journey through the dark, then one day they'll find that sun.
We can own each silver star up above, simply love me, my love.

[brief instrumental]

We can share the joy we're both dreaming of, if you'll love me, my love.

FRANK SINATRA
IN THE STILL OF THE NIGHT

In the still of the night as I gaze out of my window
At the moon in its flight, my thoughts all stray to you
In the still of the night while the world lies in slumber
Oh the times without number when I say to you
Do you love me, as I love you
Are you my life to be that dream come true
Or will this dream of mine will it fade way out of sight
Just like that moon growing dim, on the rim of the hill
In the still, still of the night.

FRANK SINATRA
IN THE WEE SMALL HOURS OF THE MORNING

In the wee small hours of the morning,
While the whole wide world is fast asleep,
You lie awake and think about the girl
And never, ever think of counting sheep.

When your lonely heart has learned its lesson,
You'd be hers if only she would call,
In the wee small hours of the morning,
That's the time you miss her most of all.

[Musical interlude]

When your lonely heart has learned its lesson,
You'd be hers if only she would call,
In the wee small hours of the morning,
That's the time you miss her most of all.

FRANK SINATRA
INDIAN SUMMER

Summer, you old Indian Summer
You're the tear that comes after June time's laughter
You see so many dreams that don't come true
Dreams we fashioned when Summertime was new

You are here to watch over
Some heart that is broken by a word that somebody left unspoken
You're the ghost of a romance in June going astray
Fading too soon, that's why I say
Farewell to you, Indian Summer

[extended sax solo]

You are here to watch over
A heart that is broken by a word that somebody left unspoken
You're the ghost of a romance in June going astray
Fading too soon, that's why I say
Farewell to you, Indian Summer

FRANK SINATRA
INDISCREET

Indiscreet it's indiscreet, to gaze at you each time we meet
I've told my eyes they must disguise this yearning
Yes it's indiscreet quite indiscreet, to find your touch so bitter sweet
You're close to me and suddenly I'm burning
While I ask myself: Where is your pride? irresistibly I'm drawn to your side
And (Yes) it's indiscreet so indiscreet, but love is swift and time is sweet
And oh my dear I crave the nearness of you
To love you is why my heart must be so love me it can't be indiscreet

FRANK SINATRA
IT GETS LONELY EARLY

When you're all alone
All the children grown
And, like starlings, flown away
It gets lonely early, doesn't it?
Lonely early, doesn't it?
Ev'ry single endless day

When your twilight nears
And one face appears
Turning winter years to May
It gets lonely early, doesn't it?
Lonely early, doesn't it?
Still the old heart's young enough to say

It was really more than lovely, wasn't it?
Truly lovely, wasn't it?
[strings]
Ev'ry single lovely day

FRANK SINATRA
IT HAD TO BE YOU

Why do I do, just as you say, why must I just, give you your way
Why do I sigh, why don't I try to forget
It must have been, that something lovers call fate
Kept me saying: I have to wait
I saw them all, just couldn't fall 'til we met
It had to be you, it had to be you
I wandered around, and finally found the somebody who
Could make me be true, and 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, or try to be boss, but they wouldn't do
For nobody else, gave me a thrill with all your faults, I love you still
It had to be you, wonderful you, it had to be you

FRANK SINATRA
IT MIGHT AS WELL BE SPRING

I'm as restless as a willow in a windstorm, I'm as jumpy as puppet on a string
I'd say that I had spring fever, but I know it isn't spring
I am starry eyed and vaguely discontented, like a nightingale without a song to sing
O why should I have spring fever, when it isn't even spring
I keep I were someone else, walking down a strange new street
And hearing words that I've never heard from a girl I've yet to meet
I'm as busy as spider spinning daydreams, spinning spinning daydreams
I'm as giggy as a baby on a swing
I haven't seen a crocus or a rosebud, or a robin on the wing
But I feel so gay in a melancholy way, that it might as well be spring
It might as well be spring.

FRANK SINATRA
IT NEVER ENTERED MY MIND

Once I laughed when I heard you saying
That I'd be playing solitaire
Uneasy in my easy chair
It never entered my mind

And once you told me I was mistaken
That I'd awaken with the sun
And ordered orange juice for one
It never entered my mind
You had what I lack, myself
Now I even have to scratch my back myself

Once you warned me that if you scorned me
I'd say a lonely prayer again
And wish that you were there again
To get into my hair again
It never entered my mind

Once you warned me that if you scorned me
I'd say a lonely prayer again
And wish that you were there again
To get into my hair again
It never entered my mind

FRANK SINATRA
IT STARTED ALL OVER AGAIN

It started all over again the moment I looked in your eyes
It started all over again, the thrill we can never disguise
The day that we parted, so broken hearted, will never return again
Dreams I've delayed, promises made are starting anew just for you

It started all over again the moment I held you so tight
It started all over again when we kissed away the night till dawn's early light
Now we're together, sweethearts forever, we'll build our romance anew
It started all over again the moment I looked at you

[instrumental]

It started all over again the moment I held you so tight
It started all over again when we kissed away the night, the dawn's early light
Now we're together, sweethearts forever, we'll build our romance anew

FRANK SINATRA
IT WAS A VERY GOOD YEAR

[spoken intro:]
Here's an awfully pretty folk song

When I was seventeen it was a very good year
It was a very good year for small town girls and soft summer nights
We'd hide from the lights on the village green
When I was seventeen

[brief instrumental]

When I was twenty one it was a very good year
It was a very good year for city girls who lived up the stair
With all that perfumed hair and it came undone
When I was twenty one

[brief instrumental]

Then I was thirty five it was a very good year
It was a very good year for blue blooded girls
Of independent means, we'd ride in limousines their chauffeurs would drive
When I was thirty five

[brief instrumental]

But now the days grow short, I'm in the autumn of the year
And now I think of my life as vintage wine from fine old kegs
From the brim to the dregs, and it poured sweet and clear
It was a very good year

[brief instrumental]

It was a mess of good years

FRANK SINATRA
IT'S A WONDERFUL WORLD

[sung by Jo Stafford in one of Frankie's broadcasts]

It's a wonderful world, I'm just walking on air
Talk of heaven on earth, I've got more than my share
Haven't got a care, happy all day thru
It's a wonderful world, loving wonderful you

FRANK SINATRA
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
So it's all right with me

You can't know how happy I am that we've 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're free
Dear, it's all right
Yes, it's all right with me

FRANK SINATRA
IT'S ALWAYS YOU

Whenever it's early twilight, I watch till a star breaks through
Funny, it's not a star I see, it's always you.
Whenever I roam through roses, and lately I often do
Funny, it's not a rose I touch, it's always you
If a breeze, caresses me, it's really you strolling by
If I hear a melody, it's merely the way you sigh
Wherever you are you're near me, you dare me to be untrue
Funny, each time I fall in love, it's always you

FRANK SINATRA
IT'S SUNDAY

Drowsy morning sunlight, gentle kisses for my love
It's Sunday, it's Sunday

She needn't waken, I'll fix the eggs and bacon her way
While she just dozes
Lately I've taken to bringing her a flower on her tray
She's fond of roses

We'll talk away the morning, read the papers, misbehave
Enjoying each other
The world is ours to play in, we'll take a walk or stay in
Long and lazy hours to have and hide away in for one day
Thank goodness, it's Sunday

[brief guitar solo]
It is Sunday, it's Sunday
[slightly longer guitar solo]

Lately I've taken to bringing her a flower on her tray
She's fond of roses

We'll talk away the morning, read the papers, misbehave
Enjoying each other
The world is ours to play in, we'll take a walk or stay in
Long and lazy hours to have and hide away in for one day
Thank goodness, it's Sunday

FRANK SINATRA
JUST AS THOUGH YOU WERE HERE

[instrumental strings intro]

I'll wake each morning and I'll promise to laugh
I'll say Good morning to your old photograph
Then I'll speak to you, dear, just as though you were here

When purple shadows start to welcome the dark
I'll take the same old stroll we took through the park
And I'll cling to you, dear, just as though you were here

But I know so well that distance and time will finally tear us apart
The farther you go, the longer you stay, the deeper the doubts in my heart

Each night before I wander off into sleep
I'll bring to light the tears I've buried so deep
Then I'll kiss you, my dear, just as though you were here

[instrumental break horns, harp, and strings]

And when I hear a lonesome train, I'm afraid
I'll think of all those trips we never quite made
Fragile dreams that we planned
Then I'll reach for your hand
Just as though, just as though you were here

FRANK SINATRA
JUST THE WAY YOU ARE

[jazz tempo to start]

Don't go changin' just to try to please me
You never let me down before
And don't imagine you're too familiar
And I don't see you anymore

I would not leave you in times of trouble
We could have never come this far
I took the good times, I'll take the bad times
I'll take you any way you are

I need to know that you will always be
The same old someone that I knew
What will it take until you believe in me
The way that I believe in you?

I said I love you , and that's forever
And this I promise from my heart
I could not love you, love you any better
I love you just the way you are

[instrumental]

[slower with lush strings]
I don't want clever, clever conversation
I never want to work that hard
I just want someone that I can talk to
I want you just the way you are

[instrumental to end]

FRANK SINATRA
L.A. IS MY LADY

The music she moves to, is music that makes me a dancer
I brought her my wildest of dreams, and she came up with the answer
I leave behind a part of myself, whenever I leave her
But oh, when I'm back in her arms
She smiles and then I am home again

'Cause L.A. is my lady, she's always there for me
L.A. is my lady, she knows how to care for me
No lady's sweeter you know it the moment you meet her
I've been in love more times, than I care to remember
And love's kept me cool in July and warm in December
It may not have lasted, but each time I thought it was heaven
You name it, I've been there and back
Lookin' for someone who I'd be faithful to
L.A. is my lady, she's always there for me
L.A. is my lady, she knows how to care for me
She's good to me yeah she's good to me, and that's why
L.A. is my lady L.A. is my lady
And you're lookin' at a man who doesn't ever plan to kiss his lady bye bye

LADY DAY

Her day was born in shades of blue
Her song was sad the words were true
Her morning came too fast too soon
And died before the afternoon
Poor lady day could use some love, some sunshine
Lady day has too much rain
Poor lady day could use some spring, some breezes
Lady day has too much pain
It's such a lonely face
Such a cloudy sky
So many shadows in her eye
So many empty dreams
So many bitter times
Just a handful
Of broken rhymes
Poor lady day could use a smile, some kindness
Lady day has too much rain
Poor lady day could use some dreams, some flowers
Lady day has too much pain
Just too much to say
Just to much to know
Too little time to say hello
And then the evening comes
And now she doesn't cry
And it's too late to say
Good bye

FRANK SINATRA
LAST NIGHT WHEN WE WERE YOUNG

Last night when we were young
Love was a star, a song unsung
Life was so new, so real so right
Ages ago last night

Today the world is old
You flew away and time grew cold
Where is that star that shone so bright
Ages ago last night?

To think that spring had depended
On merely this: a look, a kiss
To think that something so splendid
Could slip away in one little daybreak

So now, let's reminisce
And recollect the sighs and the kisses
The arms that clung

When we were young last night

FRANK SINATRA
LEARNIN' THE BLUES

The tables are empty, the dance floor's deserted.
You play the same love song it's the 10th time you've heard it.
That's the beginning, just one of the clues.
You've had your first lesson in learnin' the blues.

The cigarettes you light, one after another,
Won't help you forget her, and the way that you love her.
You're only burnin' a torch you can't lose.
But you're on the right track for learnin' the blues.

When you're at home alone,
The blues will taunt you constantly.
When you're out in a crowd,
The blues will haunt your memory.

The nights when you don't sleep, the whole night you're crying.
But you can't forget her, soon you even stop trying.
You'll walk that floor and wear out your shoes.
When you feel your heart break, you're learnin' the blues.

When you're at home alone,
The blues will taunt you constantly.
When you're out in a crowd,
Those blues will haunt your memory.

The nights when you don't sleep, that whole night you're crying.
But you can't forget her, soon you even stop trying.
You'll walk the floor, and you'll wear out your shoes.
When you feel your heart break, you're learnin' those blues.

FRANK SINATRA
LEAVING ON A JET PLANE

All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go
I'm standing here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
But the dawn is breakin', it's early morn
The taxi's waitin', he's blowin' his horn
Already I'm so lonesome. I could cry.

[Chorus:]
So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go.
I'm leavin' on a jet plane
I don't know when I'll be back again
Oh, babe, I hate to go.

There's so many times I've let you down
So many times I've played around
I tell you now, they don't mean a thing
Ev'ry place I go, I'll think of you
Ev'ry song I sing, I'll sing for you
When I come back, I'll wear your wedding ring.

[Chorus]

Now the time has come to leave you
One more time, let me kiss you
Then close your eyes, I'll be on my way.
Dream about the days to come
When I won't have to leave alone
About the times, I won't have to say,

[Chorus]

FRANK SINATRA
LET ME TRY AGAIN

I know I said that I was leaving,
But I just couldn't say good bye.
It was only self deceiving
To walk away from someone who
Means everything in life to you.
You learn from every lonely day
I've learned and I've come back to stay.

Let me try again; let me try again.
Think of all we had before,
Let me try once more.
We can have it all, you and I again.
Just forgive me or I'll die.
Please let me try again.

I was such a fool to doubt you,
To try to go it all alone.
There's no sense to life without you.
Now all I do is just exist
And think about the chance I've missed.
To beg is not an easy task,
But pride is such a foolish mask.

Let me try again; let me try again.
Think of all we had before,
Let me try once more.
We can have it all, you and I again.
Just forgive me or I'll die.
Please let me try again.

LET US BREAK BREAD TOGETHER

(Let us break bread together on our knees.)
(Let us break bread together on our knees.)
(When I fall on my knees, with my face to the rising sun,
(Oh oh Lord, have mercy on me.)
(Let us break bread together on our knees, on our knees.)

LET'S FACE THE MUSIC AND DANCE

There may be trouble ahead
But while there's music and moonlight (moonlight and music) and love and romance
Let's face the music and dance
Before the fiddlers have fled,
Before they ask us to pay the bill, and while we still have that chance
Let's face the music and dance
Soon, we'll be without the moon, humming a different tune and then...
There may be teardrops to shed
So (But) while there's music and moonlight (moonlight and music) and love and romance
(Let's face the music and dance, dance)
(Let's face the music let's here that music)
Let's face the music and dance

LET'S FALL IN LOVE

We might have been meant for each other
To be or not to be, let our hearts discover
I have a feelin', it's a feelin' I'm concealin', I don't know why
It's just a mental, incidental, sentimental, alibi
But I adore you, so strong for you
Why go on stallin', I'm fallin', love is callin', why be shy?


Let's fall in love
Why shouldn't we fall in love?
Our hearts are made of it
Let's take a chance, why be afraid of it?

Let's close our eyes
And make our own paradise
Little we know of it
Still we can try to make a go of it

Now, we might have been meant for each other
To be or not to be, let our hearts discover

Let's fall in love
Why shouldn't we fall in love?
Now is the time for it, while we are young
Let's fall in love

Let's fall in love
Let's fall in love

LIFE'S A TRIPPY THING

with [Nancy Sinatra], and (chorus)

[Getting stoned on sunshine, getting high on air,]
Getting to it naturally, really getting there,
[Getting such a high on, loving what I do,]
I'm so full of happiness, my hope's on something new,

[Each day on earth is a day that's worth remembering] (remembering, remembering).

(ding a ling)
[My pot is filled with flowers, my grass is bright and green,]
My tears brewing in my cup, and still I make the scene.
[But just don't try to change me, I love the world I found,]
I've got to fly my own sweet way, and don't you shoot me down. [hahaha]

(remembering, remembering).

(a ding a ling, ding a ling, ding a ling).
Don't pity me, I'm glad to be a ding a ling, [a ding a ling], (ding a ling, ding a ling).
( ding a ling, ding a ling, ding a ling).
Ding a ling, ding a ling, (ding a ling, ding a ling, ding a ling).
Ha ha ha, that's silly.(ding a ling, ding a ling, ding a ling).

LIKE A SAD SONG

Usually in the morning I'm filled with sweet belonging,
And everything is beautiful to see.
Even when it's raining, sounds of heaven singing
Is simply joyful music to me.
Sometimes I feel like a sad song,
Like I'm all alone without you.
So many different places, a million smiling faces,
Oh life is so incredible to me.
Especially to be near you and how it is to touch you,
Oh paradise was made for you and me.
Sometimes I feel like a sad song,
Like I'm all alone without you.
I know that life goes on just perfectly,
And everything is just the way that it should be,
Still there are times when my heart feels like breaking,
And anywhere is where I'd rather be.
Oh, and in the nighttime, I know that it's the right time,
To hold you close and say, I love you so.
To have someone to care with, someone I could share with,
And that is why I wanted you to know,
Sometimes I feel like a sad song,
Like I'm all alone without you.

[instrumental]

Sometimes I feel like a sad song,
Like I'm all alone without you.
Sometimes I feel like a sad song,
Like I'm all alone without you, without you.

LINDA

When I go to sleep, I never count sheep, I count all the charms about Linda.
And lately it seems in all of my dreams, I walk with my arms about Linda.
But what good does it do me, for Linda doesn't know I exist,
Can't help feeling gloomy, think of all the lovin I've missed.
We pass on the street ,my heart skips a beat, I say to myself, hello, Linda.
If only she'd smile I'd stop for a while, and then I would get to know Linda.
But miracles still happen and when my lucky star begins to shine.
With one little kiss, I'll make Linda mine.

FRANK SINATRA
LITTLE GREEN APPLES

And I wake up in the morning, with my hair down in my eyes,
And she says hi, and I stumble to the breakfast table,
While the kids are going off to school goodbye.
And she reaches out and takes my hand,
Squeezes it, says, how you feelin' hon?
And I look across at smiling lips that warm my heart and see my morning sun.
And if that's not lovin' me, then all I've got to say.
God didn't make little green apples
And it don't rain in Indianapolis in the summertime.
There's no such thing as Dr. Zeuss, Disneyland, and Mother Goose no nurs'ry rhyme.
God didn't make little green apples
And it don't rain in Indianapolis when the winter comes.
There's no such thing as make believe, puppy dogs, and autumn leaves and B.B. guns.
Sometimes I call her up at home knowing she's busy
And ask if she could get away and meet me, and grab a bite to eat.
And she drops what she's doin' and hurries down to meet me, and I'm always late.
But she sits, waiting patiently and smiles when she first sees me
Cause she's made that way and if that's not lovin' me
Then all I've got to say.

FRANK SINATRA
LONDON BY NIGHT

London by night is a wonderful sight
There is magic abroad in the air
I'm often told that the streets turn into gold
When the moon shines on * Circus and Square *

Deep in the dark that envelops the park
There's romance in each cigarette glow
Down by the Thames, lights that sparkle like gems
Seem to wink at each girl and her beau

Up comes the moon when the city's asleep
He's not alone, for it seems
Somewhere up there stands an angel to keep her watch
While each Londoner dreams

My love and I saw the sun leave the sky
Then we kissed in the fast fading light
Most people say they love London by day
But lovers love London by night

FRANK SINATRA
LONESOME CITIES

There's a few more lonesome cities that I'd like to see,
While the wine of wondering is still inside of me,
There's a few more pretty women that I'd like to know,
Bridge or two I'd like to cross, a few more oats to sow,
Maybe when I've done it all, seen all there is to see,
I'll find out I still cannot run away from me.
But as long as trains keep running, restless man I'll be
And there's a few more lonesome cities that I've yet to see.
Maybe when I've done it all, seen all there is to see,
I'll find out I still cannot run away from me.
But as long as trains keep running, restless man I'll be
And there's a few more lonesome cities that I've yet to see.
One or two more lonesome cities that I've yet to see.

LOOKING AT THE WORLD THRU ROSE COLORED GLASSES

Looking at the world through rose colored glasses,
Everything is rosy now.
Looking at the world and everything that passes,
Seems of rosy hue somehow.
Why do I feel surprise, don't wink your eyes,
Needn't guess I'll confess, certain someone just said yes.
In a bungalow all covered with roses, I will settle down I vow,
That's why I'm looking at the world through rose colored glasses,
Everything is rosy now.

[full instrumental interlude]

Oh yes, I'm looking at the world through rose colored glasses,
Everything is rosy now.
Looking at the world and everything that passes,
Seems of rosy hue somehow.
Why do I feel surprise, don't wink your eyes,
Needn't guess I'll confess, certain someone just said yes.
In a bungalow all covered with roses, I will settle down I vow,
That's why I'm looking at the world through rose colored glasses,
Everything is rosy now.
Yes, everything is rosy now.

LOST IN THE STARS

Before Lord God made the sea or the land
He held all the stars in the palm of his hand
And they ran through his fingers like grains of sand
And one little star fell alone

Then the Lord God hunted through the wide night air
For the little dark star in the wind down there
And he stated and promised he'd take special care
So it wouldn't get lost no more

Now, a man don't mind if the stars get dim
And the clouds blow over and darken him
So long as the Lord God's watching over him
Keeping track how it all goes on

But I've been walking through the night and the day
Till my eyes get weary and my head turns gray
And sometimes it seems maybe God's gone away
Forgetting his promise and the word he'd say

And we're lost out here in the stars
Little stars big stars blowing through the night
And we're lost out here in the stars
Little stars big stars blowing through the night
And we're lost out here in the stars

LOVE AND MARRIAGE

Love and marriage, love and marriage,
Go together like a horse and carriage.
This I tell ya, brother, you can't have one without the other.

Love and marriage, love and marriage,
It's an institute you can't disparage.
Ask the local gentry and they will say it's elementary.

Try, try, try to separate them, it's an illusion.
Try, try, try and you only come to this conclusion:

Love and marriage, love and marriage,
Go together like a horse and carriage.
Dad was told by mother you can't have one
You can't have none.
You can't have one without the other.

[Musical interlude]

Try, try, try to separate them, it's an illusion.
Try, try, try and you only come to this conclusion:

Love and marriage, love and marriage,
Go together like a horse and carriage.

(You can't have none.)
You can't have one without the other.

LOVE IS A MANY SPLENDORED THING

Love is a many splendored thing,
It's the April rose that only grows in the early spring,
Love is nature's way of giving a reason to be living,
The golden crown that makes a man a king.
Lost on a high and windy hill,
In the morning mist two lovers kissed and the world stood still,
When our fingers touch my silent heart has taught us how to sing,
Yes, true love's a many splendored thing.

FRANK SINATRA
LOVE IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER

Beautiful miracle, pardon my lyrical rhapsody,
But can't you see, you've captured me.
Being so glamorous, can't you be amorous just with me?
Make it soon, take a look at the moon.

Love is just around the corner, any cozy little corner.
Love is just around the corner when I'm around you.
I'm a sentimental mourner, and I couldn't be a loner,
When you keep me in a corner just waiting for you.
Venus de Milo was noted for her charms,
But strictly between us, you're outer than Venus,
And what's more you got arms.
So cuddle in a corner, any cozy corner,
Love is just around the corner and I'm around you

FRANK SINATRA
LOVE ISN'T JUST FOR THE YOUNG

Love isn't just for the young,
It's for all who may wish upon a star,
Love isn't just for the young,
For true love doesn't ask how old you are.
Doesn't matter if you're twenty or ninety two,
You only need a heart to share,
Then of course you need someone who feels like you,
And who answers every dream and prayer.
Love isn't just for the young,
Never fear, let the whole world know it's spring.
For love isn't just for the young,
And there's, oh, so much joy that it can bring.
Yes, the gold may have turned to silver,
But if you still have songs left unsung,
Just remember that love is for everyone,
Love isn't just for the young.

[musical interlude]

But if you still have songs left unsung,
Just remember that love is for everyone,
Love isn't just for the young.

LOVE MAKES US WHATEVER WE WANT TO BE

Love makes us whatever we want to be,
You and me the tip of the top of the tree,
We can hit the target the others aim for,
Be whatever they put your name in the for a fame for,
What we are is absolutely unique,
Looking at the world from the peak of the peak,
We're about to make us some history
So don't quiet it, just forget that wild on the story
Listen to my poor heart imploring,
I just need to know you're adoring me,
Cause love makes us whatever we want to be.
Hail those famous lovers, they've met their match,
There in kindergarten just starting from scratch,
We're about to solve the great mystery.
So don't fight it, only close while heaven's deciding,
Watching stars and planets colliding
From this lovely rainbow we're riding free,
Love makes us whatever we want to be.
Love makes us whatever we want to be.

LOVE ME TENDER

Love me tender, love me sweet, never let me go,
You have made my life complete and I love you so.
Love me tender, love me sweet, all my dreams fulfilled,
For my darling, I love you and I always will.

Love me tender, love me long, take me to your heart.
For it's there that I belong and we'll never part.
Love me tender, love me sweet, all my dreams fulfilled,
For my darling, I love you and I always will.

Love me tender, love me dear, tell me you are mine,
I'll be yours through all the years till the end of time.
Love me tender, love me sweet, all my dreams fulfilled,
For my darling, I love you and I always will.

LOVE WALKED IN

Love walked right in and drove the shadows away
Love walked right in and brought my sunniest day
One magic moment and my heart seemed to know that love said hello
Though not a word was spoken

One look, and I forgot the gloom of the past
One look and I had found my future at last
One look and I had found a world completely new
When love walked in with you

[instrumental first two lines of first verse]
One magic moment and my heart seemed to know that love said hello
Though not a word was spoken

One look and I had found a world completely new
When love walked in with you

LOVE'S BEEN GOOD TO ME

I have been a rover
I have walked alone
Hiked a hundred highways
Never found a home
Still in all I'm happy
The reason is, you see
Once in a while along the way
Love's been good to me

There was a girl in Denver
Before the summer storm
Oh, her eyes were tender
Oh, her arms were warm
And she could smile away the thunder
Kiss away the rain
Even though she's gone away
You won't hear me complain

I have been a rover
I have walked alone
Hiked a hundred highways
Never found a home
Still in all I'm happy
The reason is, you see
Once in a while along the way
Love's been good to me

There was a girl in Portland
Before the winter chill
We used to go a courtin'
Along October hill
And she could laugh away the dark clouds
Cry away the snow
It seems like only yesterday
As down the road I go

I've been a rover
I have walked alone
Hiked a hundred highways
Never found a home
Still in all I'm happy
The reason is, you see
Once in a while along the way
Love's been good to me

LUCK BE A LADY

They call you lady luck
But there is room for doubt
At times you have a very un lady like way
Of running out
Your on this date with me
The pickin's have been lush
And yet before the evening is over
You might give me the brush
You might forget your manners
You might refuse to stay
And so the best that I can do is pray
Luck be lady tonight
Luck be lady tonight
Luck if you've been a lady to begin with
Luck be a lady tonight
Luck let a gentleman see
Just how nice a dame you can be
I know the way you've treated other guys you've been with
Luck be a lady with me
A lady never leaves her escort
It isn't fair, it isn't nice
A lady doesn't wander all over the room
And blow on some other guys dice
Lets keep this party polite
Never get out of my sight
Stick with me baby, I'm the guy that you came in with
Luck be lady tonight
A lady never flirts with strangers
She'd have a heart, she'd be nice
A lady doesn't wander all over the room
And blow on some other guys dice
Lets keep this party polite
Never get out of my sight
Stick with me baby, I'm the guy that you came in with
Luck be lady tonight

MACARTHUR PARK

Spring was never waiting for us, girl, it ran one step ahead as we followed in the dance,
Between the parted pages that were pressed,
A love hot fevered like a striped pair of pants,
MacArthur Park is melting in the dark, all the sweet, green icing flowing down.
Someone left the cake out in the rain,
I don't think I could take it, cause it took so long to bake it,
And I'll never have that recipe again, oh no!
I still see the yellow cotton dress foaming like a wave upon the ground.
Around your knees, and the birds like tender babies in your hands,
And the old men playing checkers by the trees.
There will be another song for me, for I will sing it.
There would be another dream for me, someone will bring it.
Oh, I will drink the wine while it is warm,
And never let you catch me looking at the sun.
But after all the loves of my life, after all the loves, you'll still be the one.
I would take my life into my hands and I will use it,
I will win the worship in their eyes, and I will lose it.
I will have all the things that I desire, and my passions flow like rivers in the sky,
And after the loves of my life, after all the loves of my life,
You'll still gonna be the one.
MacArthur Park is melting in the dark, all the sweet, green icing flowing down,
Someone left the cake out in the rain,
I don't think I can take it, cause it took so long to bake it,
And I'll never have that recipe again, oh no, oh no!

MACK THE KNIFE

Oh, the shark has pretty teeth, dear
And he shows 'em, pearly white
Just a jack knife has Macheath, dear
And he keeps it, keeps it way out of sight

When that shark bites with his teeth, dear
Scarlet billows, they begin to spread
Fancy white gloves though has Macheath, dear
So there's rarely, never one trace of red

On the sidewalk, one Sunday mornin'
Lies a body oozin' life
Someone's sneaking 'round the corner
Could that someone, perhaps, perchance, be Mack the Knife?

From a tugboat on the river goin' slow
A cement bag, it is dropping down
Yeah, the cement is just for the weight, dear
You can make a large bet Macheath is back in town

My man Louie Miller, he split the scene, babe
After drawin' out all the bread from his stash
Now Macheath spends just like a pimp, babe
Do you suppose that our boy, he did something rash?

Ah, old Satchmo, Louis Armstrong, Bobby Darrin
They did this song nice, Lady Ella too
They all sang it, with so much feeling
That Old Blue Eyes, he ain't gonna add nothing new

But with Quincy's big band, right behind me
Swinging hard, Jack, I know I can't lose
When I tell you, all about Mack the Knife babe
It's an offer, you can never refuse

We got George Benson, we got Newman & Foster
We got the Brecker Brothers, and Hampton's bringing up the rear
All these bad cats, and more, are in the band now
They make the greatest sounds, you ever gonna hear

Hey Sookie Taudry, Jenny Diver, Polly Peachum, Old Miss Lulu Brown
Oh the line forms, on the right dear
Now that Macheath, I mean that man Macheath
Yeah he's bad, mercy mercy
Yeah he's badder than old Leroy Brown
You better lock your door, and call the law
Because Macheath's, that bum,
He's back in town

ME AND MY SHADOW

Like the wallpaper sticks to the wall
Like the seashore clings to the sea
Like you'll never get rid of your shadow
Frank, you'll never get rid of me

Let all the others fight and fuss
Whatever happens, we've got us.

Me and my shadow
We're closer than pages that stick in a book
We're closer than ripples that play in a brook
Strolling down the avenue
Wherever you find him, you'll find me, just look
Closer than a miser or the bloodhounds to Liza

Me and my shadow
We're closer than smog when it clings to L.A.
We're closer than Bobby is to J.F.K.
Not a soul can bust this team in two
We stick together like glue

And when it's sleeping time
That's when we rise
We start to swing
Swing to the skies
Our clocks don't chime
What a surprise
They ring a ding ding!
Happy New Year!

Me and my shadow
And now to repeat what I said at the start
They'll need a large crowbar to break us apart
We're alone but far from blue

Before we get finished, we'll make the town roar
We'll make all the late spots, and then a few more
We'll wind up at Jilly's right after Toot's Shore
Life is gonna be we wow whee!
(here comes the party!)
For my shadow and me!

Say Frank?
What is it, Sam?
Do me a favor?
What do you want, now?
Would you mind taking it, just one more time?
From the top?
No! From the ending!
Wonderful!

And while we are swinging, to mention a few
We'll drop in at Danny's, The Little Club too
But wind up at Jilly's, whatever we do
Life is gonna be we wow whee!
(Wow!)
For my shadow and me!

Frank?
Oh, forget it Sam.

MEDITATION (MEDITACAO)

In my loneliness, when you're gone and I'm all by myself and I need your caress
I just think of you, and the thought of you holding me near
Makes my loneliness soon disappear.
Though you're far away, I have only to close my eyes and you are back to stay
I just close my eyes and the sadness that missing you brings
Soon is gone and this heart of mine sings
Yes I love you so, and that for me is all I need to know
I will wait for you till the sun falls from out of the sky, for what else can I do
I will wait for you, meditating how sweet life will be when you come back to me

FRANK SINATRA
MICHAEL AND PETER

Michael is you, he has your face, he still has your eyes
Remember, Peter is me, 'cept when he smiles
And if you look at them both for a while
You can see they are you, they are me
This spring we had some heavy rain, my summer it was dry again
The roses that we planted last fall climb the wall
I think the house could use some paint, you know your mother's such a saint
She takes the boys whenever she can, she sure needs a man
All those years I've worked for Santa Fe, never ever missed a single day
Just one more without a raise in pay, and I'm leavin'
And the air still has a country smell, and everyone is looking well
As far as anyone can tell, the sun will rise tomorrow
You'll never believe how much they're growin'
John Henry came to cut the lawn, again he asked me where you'd gone
Can't tell you all the times he's been told, but he's so old
Guess that's all the news I've got today, least that's all the news that I can say
Maybe soon the words will come my way tomorrow
And the air still has a country smell, and everyone is looking well
As far as anyone can tell, the sun will rise tomorrow
You'll never believe how much they're growin'
You'll never believe how much they're growin'...

MISTER BOOZE

With Bing Crosby, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr.
(chorus) [the drunks] The rest are solos.

Booze, Mister Booze (Mister Booze), Mister Booze
Mister B double O, Z Eeee, (that sure spells booze),
You will wind up wearing tattered shoes if you mess with Mister Booze,
(Don't mess with Mister Booze, don't mess with Mister Booze.)
Don't mess with B, double o, Z, E, if you've been so simply occupied.
You'll feel better once you testify, (testify, testify)
[I want to testify, I want to testify]
Well, then cleanse yourself, my child, cleanse yourself.
Brothers and sisters, I happen to know this poor unfortunate soul,
And the fight she is waging against sin,
That old devil Booze has changed her
Into the unsightly person you see before you.
Give us your testimony, my child.
[Well, it all began with Johnny] (Yeah?)
[He said drink helped him stay alive] (Yeah?)
[Do you know how old he was when he died?] (No)
[He was twenty five] (No. no)
[That's why I gotta come clean] (why?)
[Because I'm already seventeen]
Who's to blame? (Who's to blame?) What his name?
(We know his name, his name is.)
Mister Booze, Mister Booze, Mister B, double O, Z, E,
Don't ever choose, any game you play with him, you lose,

If your head feels like it's two miles wide,
You'll feel better once you testify (testify, testify, testify)
[I want to testify, I want to testify]
Well, come forward, dear brother, come forward.
You see here, ladies and gentlemen, a man who just last year
Was the United States Olympic heavyweight wrestling champion,
Here he is, just a shadow of his former self, wasted in health, ravaged by sin.
Oh give us your testimony, dear brother.
[I was cruel and I was mean] he was mean!
[I was a no gooder, pickpocket] (a no good pickpocket)
[And then you see, sin got me in its clutches now] sin got him in his clutches,
[No. I said sin was not...] Oh, I didn't hear the first part
[And that's why I need forgiving] (Why?)
['Cause my hands shake so much now, I can't even make love]
That's a shame, (what a shame) who's to blame? (Who's to blame?)
(Mister Booze, Mister Booze, Mister B, double O, Z., E. what's with you?)
(You'll make the office dupe a recluse, sister, if you dance with Mister Booze.)
(If you prince with tiffless, naughty guy,)
(You'll feel better when you testify, testify, oh yeah, testify, oh yeah, testify)
[I wanna testify. I wanna testify.]
Ah but you don't have to. [oh but I wanna] (oh let the bum testify!)
Okay, then put down that demijohn and come up forward here,
And let us lead you on the path of righteousness. Not long ago, brothers and sisters,
This helpless soul was the foremost brain surgeon in this grand and glorious country.
Success was smiling down upon him.
Now go ahead and tell us your story. Don't be shy.
[Let me tell. Let me tell. You see I use spirits for medicinal purposes only] (Yeah)
[I manufacture it for medicinal purposes only.] (yeah?)
[Then I started drinking what I manufactured till I drank myself]
[Out of a hell of a business for medicinal purposes only.] (That's right)
Now, alcohol makes a big man small and can lead to life of crime.
Drinking rum makes you skin and bone, and you cash in before your time.
Bootleg gin for your Mickey Finn till you don't even know your name.
You're a basket case right on your face, there's only one guy to blame.
(Oh Mister Booze, Mister Booze, Mister B, double O, Z, E, don't ever queue,)
(Don't you wind up swearing platitudes if you're mad with Mister Booze)
(Oh, Mister Booze, Don't mess, mess with Mr. Booze.)
Don't mess with B, double O. Z, E, cause that spells booze.
And you gotta lose with Mi ister Booze. (Oh Yeah).
Don't mess around with Mister Booze.
(Don't with Mister Booze, Don't with Mister Booze.)
(What's his name now, Oh Mister Booze),
(Don't mess with Mister Booze), Oh Mister Booze, (Don't mess with Mister Booze.)

MISTY

Look at me, I'm as helpless as a kitten up a tree
And I feel like I'm hanging from a cloud, I can't understand
I get misty, just holding your hand, walk my way
And a thousand violins begin to play
Or it might be the sound of your hello
This magic I hear, I get misty the moment you're near
You could say that you're leading me on, but it's just what I want you to do
Can't you see just how hopelessly I'm drawn, that's why I'm following you
On my own, would I wander through this wonderland alone
Never knowing my right foot from my left, my hat from my glove
I get misty, and too much in love on my own
Would I wander through this wonderland alone
Never knowing my right foot from my left
My hat and my glove, I get misty and too much in love
Look at me

FRANK SINATRA
MOMENT TO MOMENT

From moment to moment every moment that I live
I live for every moment with you
To see you, to touch you, to imagine this will be
The moment when a dream comes true

Just an ordinary day becomes adventure
Such sweet adventure I never knew
And life will be rainbows as I learn the secret of
The miracle that love can do
From moment to moment with you

[musical interlude]

And life will be rainbows as I learn the secret of
The miracle that love can do
From moment to moment with you

FRANK SINATRA
MONDAY MORNING QUARTERBACK

I know there were a hundred ways to tell her I loved her
It's funny how they're all so clear today
And when her face was burning with sadness and yearning
I don't know why I turned my eyes away

But it's so easy looking at the game the morning after
Adding up the kisses and the laughter
Knowing how you'd play it if the chance to play it over ever came
But then, a Monday morning quarterback never lost a game

The room was so alive with all her feelings and longings
I saw the spark of danger in her eyes
Well, how would it have hurt me if I'd turned back and held her?
A moment passes, something lovely dies

But it's so easy looking at the game the morning after
Adding up the kisses and the laughter
Knowing how you'd play it if the chance to play it over ever came
But then, a Monday morning quarterback never lost a game

[instrumental French horns first two lines of chorus]

Yes, it's easier to win it when you know you'd never play it quite the same
But then, this Monday morning quarterback never lost a game

FRANK SINATRA
MOODY RIVER

[Chorus:]
Moody river, more deadly than the vainest knife
Moody river, your muddy water took my baby's life

Last Saturday evenin' came to the old oak tree
It stands beside the river where you were to meet me
On the ground your glove I found with a note addressed to me
It read Dear love, I've done you wrong, now I must set you free
No longer can I live with this hurt and this sin.
I just couldn't tell you that guy was just a friend

[Chorus]

I looked into the muddy water and what could I see?
I saw a lonely, lonely face just lookin' back at me
Tears in his eyes and a prayer on his lips
And the glove of his lost love at his fingertips

[Chorus]

FRANK SINATRA
MOON LOVE

Will this be moon love, nothing but moon love,
Will you be gone when the dawn comes stealing through?
Are these just moon dreams, grand while the moon beams?
But when the moon fades away, will my dreams come true?
Much as I love you, don't let me love you.
If I must pay for your kiss with lonely tears, say it's not moon love.
Tell me it's true, say you'll be mine when the moon disappears.

FRANK SINATRA
MOON RIVER

Moon river, wider than a mile
I'm crossin' you in style some day
Old dream maker, you heartbreaker
Wherever you're goin', I'm goin' your way

Two drifters, off to see the world
There's such a lot of world to see
We're after the same rainbow's end, waitin' 'round the bend
My huckleberry friend, Moon River, and me

[instrumental first verse]

Two drifters, off to see the world
There's such a lot of world to see
We're after the same rainbow's end, waitin' 'round the bend
My huckleberry friend, Moon River, and me

FRANK SINATRA
MOON SONG

Once I tried to capture the rapture of the night,
Silly dreams I knew would disappear,
But it seems they left a souvenir,
One refrain eternally will haunt me, taunt me.
It came from nowhere the night that we met,
T'was like a melodious plea, wee moon song that wasn't meant for me.
Why is it always reminding me of a love dream that never could be.
Wee moon song that wasn't meant for me.
It came gliding into my heart, riding on a moonbeam from above.
Sorrow and this and the whole world blended in a rhapsody of love.
There I heard her singing to somebody else,
What I thought was my melody,
Wee moon song that wasn't meant for me.

FRANK SINATRA
MOONLIGHT BECOMES YOU

You're all dressed up to go dreaming, now don't tell me I'm wrong
And what a night to go dreaming, mind if I tag along
Moonlight becomes it goes with your hair
You certainly know the right thing to wear
Moonlight becomes you I'm thrilled at the sight
And I could get so romantic tonight
You're all dressed up to go dreaming, now don't you tell me I'm wrong
What a night to go dreaming, mind if I tag along
And if I say: I love you I want you to know
It's not just because there's moonlight although
Moonlight becomes you so

FRANK SINATRA
MOONLIGHT MOOD

Moonlight mood when twilight is ending
You're in my moonlight mood and our hearts are blending
There on the same old wall that we used to know long ago
You walked there in a ribbon of moonlight
There you are as lovely as ever
You vowed by every star to love me forever
Although you're far away we meet in my solitude
You are mine when I'm in my moonlight mood...
Then in the moonlight you are mine
When I'm in my moonlight mood...

FRANK SINATRA
MOONLIGHT ON THE GANGES

Moonlight on the Ganges, my little Hindu,
When I whisper love's sweet melody,
All our dreams and our schemes came true.
Someday on the Ganges, I'll need you once more,
And I'll kiss you and caress you
Where the waters kiss the silent shore.
(musical interlude)
Moonlight on the Ganges, my little Hindu,
When I whispeedr love's sweet melody,
All our dreams and our schemes came true.
Someday on the Ganges, I'll need you once more,
And I'll kiss you and caress you
Where the waters kiss, kiss the silent shore.

FRANK SINATRA
MOONLIGHT SERENADE

I stand at your gate and the song that I sing is of moonlight
I stand and I wait for the touch of your hand in the June night
The roses are sighing a Moonlight Serenade.

The stars are aglow and tonight how their light sets me dreaming.
My love, do you know that your eyes are like stars brightly beaming?
I bring you and I sing you a Moonlight Serenade

Let us stray till break of day in love's valley of dreams.
Just you and I, a summer sky, a heavenly breeze kissin' the trees.

So don't let me wait, come to me tenderly in the June night.
I stand at your gate and I sing you a song in the moonlight
A love song, my darling, a Moonlight Serenade.

FRANK SINATRA
MORE (THEME FROM MONDO CANE)

More than the greatest love the world has known,
This is the love I give to you alone,
More than the simple words I try to say,
I only live to love you more each day.
More than you'll ever know, my arms long to hold you so,
My life will be in your keeping, waking, sleeping, laughing, weeping,
Longer than always is a long long time, but far beyond forever you're gonna be mine.
I know I've never lived before and my heart is very sure,
No one else could love you more.

[musical interlude]

More than you'll ever know , my arms they long to hold you so,
My life will be in your keeping, waking, sleeping, laughing, weeping,
Longer than always is a long long time, but far beyond forever you'll be mine,
I know that I've never lived before and my heart is very sure,
No one else could love you more, no one else could love you more.

FRANK SINATRA
MORE THAN YOU KNOW

[Intro]
Whether you are here or yonder, whether you are false or true
Whether you remain or wander, I'm growing fonder of you
Even though your friends forsake you, even though you don't succeed
Wouldn't I be glad to take you, give you the break you need

More than you know, more than you know
Girl of my heart, I love you so
Lately I find you're on my mind
More than you know

Whether you're right, whether you're wrong
Girl of my heart, I'll string along
You need me so
Much more than you'll ever know (ever know)

Loving you the way that I do
There's nothing I can do about it
Loving may be all you can give
But baby I can't live without it

Oh, how I'd cry, oh, how I'd cry
If you got tired and said Good bye
More than I'd show
More than you'd ever know

MRS. ROBINSON

And here's to you, Mrs. Robinson,
Jilly loves you more than you will know, whoa, whoa, whoa
Oh bless you please, Mrs. Robinson, heaven holds a place for those who pray
Hey, hey, hey (hey, hey, hey; hey, hey, hey)

We'd like to know a little bit about you for our file
We'd like to help you learn to help yourself
Look around you all you see are sympathetic eyes
Stroll around the grounds until you feel at home

The PTA, Mrs. Robinson, won't OK the way you do your thing, ding, ding, ding
And you'll get yours, Mrs. Robinson, foolin' with that young stuff like you do
Boo, hoo, hoo; woo, woo, woo
So how's your bird, Mrs. Robinson, Dandy , Mrs. Robinson you'd say
Hey, hey, hey
Well have you heard, Mrs. Robinson, mine is fine as wine, and I should know
Ho, ho, ho

MY BABY JUST CARES FOR ME

My baby don't care for shows, my baby don't care for clothes,
My baby just cares for me.
My baby don't care for furs and laces,
My baby don't care for high toned places.
My baby don't care for rings, or other expensive things.
She's sensible as can be.
My baby don't care who knows it, my baby just cares for me

FRANK SINATRA
MY FOOLISH HEART

The night is like a lovely tune, beware my foolish heart!
How white the ever constant moon, take care, my foolish heart!
There's a line between love and fascination,
That's hard to see on an evening such as this,
For they give the very same sensation.
When you are lost in the passion of a kiss.
Your lips are much too close to mine, beware my foolish heart!
But should our eager lips combine, then let the fire start.
For this time it isn't fascination, or a dream that will fade and fall apart,
It's love this time, it's love, my foolish heart!

FRANK SINATRA
MY HEART STOOD STILL

[Version 1]

[Frank and chorus] (chorus only)

[Frank speaks]
When most us saddle up for the old trail for our last ride, we leave little
enough behind to show that once we have camped here. Some leave more than
others, some a memory and some a fortune, some a song. And a song can be as
fine a memorial to a man as anything that can be left behind, 'cause you see
it's gold, and it's gold that all can share. We have a great song to
remember Lorenz Hart by, that wonderful melody that he and Dick Rodgers
wrote for the Connecticut Yankee, of course you know, My Heart Stood Still
[sings]
I took one look at you, that's all I meant to do
And then my heart stood still,
My feet could step and walk, my lips could move and talk
And yet my heart stood still.
Though not a single word was spoken, I could tell you knew
That unfelt clasp of hands told me so well you knew
I never lived at all until the thrill of that moment
When my heart stood still.
(That unfelt clasp of hands told me how well you knew, hmmmm)
I laughed at sweethearts I met at schools
All indiscreet hearts seemed romantic fools
(A house in Iceland was my heart's domain)
(I saw your eyes, now castles rise in Spain!)
[a brief interlude through the first verse]
Though not a single word was spoken, I could tell you knew
That unfelt clasp of hands told me so well that you knew
I never lived at all [until the thrill of that moment]
[When my heart stood still.]


[Version 2]

I took one look at you,
That's all I meant to do
And then my heart stood still
My feet could step and walk
My lips could move and talk
And yet my heart stood still

Though not a single word was spoken, I could tell you knew
That unfelt clasp of hands told me so well you knew
I never lived at all until the thrill of that moment when
My heart stood still

Though not a single word was spoken, I could tell you knew
That unfelt clasp of hands told me very well you knew
I never lived at all until the thrill of that moment when
My heart stood still

FRANK SINATRA
MY KIND OF GIRL

She walks like an angel walks, she talks like an angel talks,
And her hair has a kind of curl, to my mind, she's my kind of girl.
She's wise like an angel's wise, with eyes like an angel's eyes,
And a smile like a kind of pearl, to my mind, she's my kind of girl.
A pretty little face, that face just knocks me off my feet,
A pretty little feet, she's really sweet enough to eat.
She looks like an angel looks, she cooks like an angel cooks,
And my mind in a kind of whirl, to my mind, she's my kind of girl.

[full instrumental interlude]

Hmmm, pretty little face, that face just knocks me off my feet,
Pretty little feet, she's really sweet enough to eat.
She looks like an angel looks, and she cooks like an angel cooks,
And my mind in a kind of whirl, to my mind, she's my kind of girl.
Yes, my poor heart's in a whirl, she's just my kind, she's a girl.
And I'm glad.

FRANK SINATRA
MY KIND OF TOWN

Now this could only happen to a guy like me
And only happen in a town like this
So may I say to each of you most gratef'lly
As I throw each one of you a kiss

This is my kind of town, Chicago is
My kind of town, Chicago is
My kind of people, too
People who smile at you

And each time I roam, Chicago is
Calling me home, Chicago is
Why I just grin like a clown
It's my kind of town

[brief instrumental]

My kind of town, Chicago is
My kind of town, Chicago is
My kind of razzmatazz
And it has all that jazz

And each time I leave, Chicago is
Tuggin' my sleeve, Chicago is
The Wrigley Building, Chicago is
The Union Stockyard, Chicago is
One town that won't let you down
It's my kind of town

MY SHINING HOUR

This moment, this minute
And each second in it
Will leave a glow upon the sky
And as time goes by, it will never die

This will be my shining hour
Calm and happy and bright
And in my dreams, your face will flower
Through the darkness of the night

Like the lights of home before me
Or an angel, who's watching o'er me
This will be my shining hour
'til I'm with you again

[instrumental]

(Like the lights of home before me)

MY SWEET LADY

Lady, are you crying, do the tears belong to me
Did you think our time together was all gone
Lady, you've been dreaming, I'm as close as I can be
And I swear to you our time has just begun

Close your eyes and rest your weary mind
I promise I will stay right here beside you
Today our lives were joined, became entwined
I wish that you could know how much I love you

Lady, are you happy, do you feel the way I do
Are there meanings that you've never seen before
Lady, my sweet lady, I just can't believe it's true
And it's like I've never, ever loved before

Lady, are you crying, do the tears belong to me
Did you think our time together was all gone
Lady, my sweet lady, I'm as close as I can be
And I swear to you our time has just begun

FRANK SINATRA
MY WAY

And now, the end is here
And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I'll say it clear
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain
I've lived a life that's full
I traveled each and ev'ry highway
And more, much more than this, I did it my way

Regrets, I've had a few
But then again, too few to mention
I did what I had to do and saw it through without exemption
I planned each charted course, each careful step along the byway
And more, much more than this, I did it my way

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all, when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out
I faced it all and I stood tall and did it my way

I've loved, I've laughed and cried
I've had my fill, my share of losing
And now, as tears subside, I find it all so amusing
To think I did all that
And may I say, not in a shy way,
Oh, no, oh, no, not me, I did it my way

For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught
To say the things he truly feels and not the words of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows and did it my way!

[instrumental]

Yes, it was my way

FRANK SINATRA
MY WAY OF LIFE

Gotta have you near all the time, with your dreams wrapped up in mine.
Gotta be a part of your soul and your heart all the time.
Nothing in the world that I do means a thing without you.
I'm just half alive in my struggle to survive without you.
You are my way of life, the only way I know, you are my way of life.
I'll never let you go, never let you out of my sight, be it day, be it night,
You belong to me, that's the way it will, be wrong or right,
I don't need crowds at my door, the applause from the floor,
All I need is you and the love we once knew, nothing more.
You are my way of life, the only way I know, make me your way of life.

FRANK SINATRA
NAME IT AND IT'S YOURS

How would you like Aladdin's Lamp to call your own?
The wells that once was Singapore, fast Italian cars,
Diamonds big as stars, just name it and it's yours.
How would you like the finest laces from Cologne,
And pearls that come from coral shores,
And to match your eyes, blue Venetian skies,
Just name it and it's yours.
I know all this may sound extreme, and quite impossible to do.
But when we kiss, the wildest dreams could very possibly come true.
Until you have Aladdin's Lamp to call your own,
Let's window shop the local stores,
And for just a start, if you want a heart,
I have one that worships and adores,
Just name it, and it's yours.
(musical interlude)
Until we have a dozen oil wells in the yard,
Let's window shop the local stores,
And for just a start, if you want a heart,
I have one that worships and adores,
Just name it, and it's yours.

FRANK SINATRA
NANCY

If I don't see her each day, I miss her
Gee what a thrill, each time I kiss her
Believe me, I've got a case
On nancy, with the laughing face

She takes the winter and makes it summer
And summer could take some lessons from her
Picture a tomboy in lace
That's nancy with the laughing face

Have you ever heard mission bells ringing
Well she'll give you the very same glow
When she speaks you would think it was singing
Just hear her say hello

I swear to goodness, you can't resist her
She's mighty sweet, and wait till you see her sister
No angel could replace
Nancy, with the laughing face

FRANK SINATRA
NICE WORK IF YOU CAN GET IT

Holdin' hands at midnight
'neath a starry sky
Nice work if you can get it
And you can get it if you try

Strollin' with the one girl
Sighin' sigh after sigh
Nice work if you can get it
And you can get it if you try

Just imagine someone
Waiting at the cottage door
Where two hearts become one
Who could ask for anything more?

Loving one who loves you
And then takin' that vow
Nice work if you can get it
And if you get it won't you tell me how?

[very brief instrumental]

Holdin' hands at midnight
'neath a starry sky
[last two lines are instrumental]

And strollin' with the one girl
Sighing sigh after sigh
[last two lines are instrumental]

Just imagine someone
Waiting at the cottage door
Where two hearts become one
Who could ask for anything more?

Loving one who loves you
And then takin' that vow
Nice work if you can get it
And if you get it won't you tell me how?

NIGHT

I can just about get through the day,
But the night makes me nervous
Not for any reason.
Except maybe that it catches you unaware,
And follows you the way a woman follows
When she wants something..

[music interlude]

I've been in every kind of night,
Why, I shouldn't be afraid of darkness,
But for some reason, the night makes me nervous.

[music to the end]

NIGHT AND DAY

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

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

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

[Instrumental]

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

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

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

NOAH

The world's a tiny blue green ark
Afloat in darkest space.
And every creature lives his time
And knows his special place
And each of us is Noah
With a life all in our care
To keep against the darkness
That's flooding everywhere

We've got to walk with the lion,
Soar with the eagle,
Sing with the nightingale
And live in love and peace.

The times have made us fearful
And our fears have brought the tears
The loneliness and darkness
Have grown bitter with the years
But a light is just beyond us
and the children almost see
A world that we've forgotten
And the world they want to be

When we walk with the lion,
Soar with the eagle,
Sing with the nightingale
And live in love and peace.

The ark is getting crowded now
And each of us must know
When everything is finished here
There's no where else to go.
The beasts are here to bless us
And the faith is in their eyes
That we can find the garden
And see that sweet dawn rise

And we can walk with the lion,
Soar with the eagle,
Sing with the nightingale
and live in love and peace.

We've got to walk with the lion,
Soar with the eagle,
Sing with the nightingale
And live in love and peace.

NOBODY WINS

Anymore it doesn't matter who's right or wrong.
We've been injurin' each other much too long.
And it's too late to try to save what might have been.
It's over; nobody wins.

Make believin' in forever is just a lie.
And it seems a little sadder each time we try.
'Cause it's a shame to make the same mistake again and again.
It's over; nobody wins.

We've gone too far, too long, too far apart.
The lovin' was easy; it's the livin' that's hard.
For there's no need to stay to see the way it ends.
It's over; nobody wins.

We've gone too far, too long, too far apart.

NOTHING BUT THE BEST

I like a new Lincoln with all of its class,
I like a martini, and third on the glass,
I'm gonna start living, you wait and see,
Nothing but the best is good enough for me.
I like to eat lobster directly from Maine,
I like to see bullfights in sunny old Spain,
I'm gonna start living, you wait and see,
Nothing but the best is good enough for me.
Talley ho, off we go, who can wait another day,
You and me, out on a spree, let's get started right away.
We're gonna go charlin', and have us a fling,
We'll visit a palace, and dine with the king,
We're gonna start living, you wait and see,
Nothing but the best is good enough for me.

[musical interlude]

NOW IS THE HOUR

Now is the hour when we must say goodbye.
Soon you'll be sailing far across the sea.
While you're away, oh, then, remember me.
When you return, you'll find me waiting here.
Sunset glow fades in the west. Night o'er the valley is creeping.
Birds cuddle down in their nest, soon all the world will be sleeping.
Now is the hour when we must goodbye.
Soon you'll be sailing far across the sea.
While you're away, oh, then, remember me.
When you return, you'll find me waiting here.

OH! WHAT IT SEEMED TO BE

It was just a neighborhood dance
That's all that it was
But, oh, what it seemed to be
It was like a masquerade ball
With costumes and all
'Cause you were at the dance with me
It was just a ride on a train
That's all that it was
But, oh, what it seemed to be
It was like a trip to the stars
To Venus and Mars
'Cause you were on the train with me
And when I kissed you, darling
It was more than just a thrill for me
It was the promise, darling
Of the things that fate had willed for me
It was just a wedding in June
That's all that it was
But, oh, what it seemed to be
It was like a royal affair
With everyone there
'Cause you said Yes, I do to me

FRANK SINATRA
OH, HOW I MISS YOU TONIGHT

Oh, how I miss you tonight, miss you while lights are low,
Oh, how I need you tonight, more than you'll ever know.
Each moment, though we're apart, you're never out of my heart.
But I'd rather be lonely, and wait for you only,
My dear, how I miss you tonight.

OH, YOU CRAZY MOON

When they met, the way they smiled, I saw that I was through
Oh, you crazy moon, what did you do?
And when they kissed, they tried to say that it was just in fun
Oh, you crazy moon, look what you've done

Once you promised me, you know, that it would never end
You should be ashamed to show your funny face, my friend

There they are, they fell in love, I guess you think that you're smart
Oh, you crazy moon, you broke my heart

[instrumental]

OL' MAN RIVER

[Elongated Intro]
Here we all work 'long the Mississippi
Here we all work while the white folk play
Pullin' them boats from the dawn till sunset
Gettin' no rest till the judgment day

Don't look up and don't look down
Ya don't dast make the white boss frown
Bend your knees and bow your head
And pull that rope until you're dead

Let me go 'way from the Mississippi
Let me go 'way from the white man boss
Show me that stream called the River Jordan
That's the old stream that I long to cross
[End Of Intro]

Ol' Man River, that Ol' Man River
He must know somepin', but he don't say nothin'

He just keeps rollin', he keeps on rollin' along

He don't plant taters, and he don't plant cotton
And them what plants 'em is soon forgotten
But Ol' Man River, jest keeps rollin' along

You and me, we sweat and strain
Bodies all achin' and wracked with pain
Tote that barge and lift that bale
Ya get a little drunk and ya lands in ja ail

I gets weary and so sick of tryin'
I'm tired of livin', but I'm feared of dyin'
And Ol' Man River, he just keeps rollin' along
[final 2 notes linger for 11 seconds]

OLD DEVIL MOON

I look at you and suddenly, something in your eyes I see;
Soon begins bewitching me.
It's that old devil moon that you stole from the skies.
It's that old devil moon in your eyes.
You and you glance make this romance too hot to handle.
Stars in the night, blazing their light can't hold a candle;
To your razzle dazzle.
You've got me flyin' high and wide, on a magic carpet ride;
Full of butterflies inside.
Wanna cry, wanna croon, wanna laugh like a loon.
It's that old devil moon in your eyes.
Just when I think, I'm free as a dove.
Old devil moon, deep in your eyes, blinds me with love

FRANK SINATRA
ON A CLEAR DAY (YOU CAN SEE FOREVER)

On a clear day, rise and look around you, and you'll see who you are.
On a clear day, how it will astound you
That the glow of your feelings outshines every star.
You will follow every mountain, sea and shore,
You will see from far and near a world you've never seen before.
On a clear day, on a clear day, you can see forever, and ever, and ever more.

FRANK SINATRA
ONCE I LOVED (O AMOR EN PAZ)

Once, once I loved
And I gave so much love to this love you were the world to me
Once I cried
At the thought I was foolish and proud and let you say goodbye

And then one day
From my infinite sadness you came and brought me love again
Now I know
That no matter what ever befalls I'll never let you go
I will hold you close, make you stay
Because love is the saddest thing when it goes away
Love is the saddest thing when it goes away

FRANK SINATRA
ONCE UPON A TIME

Once upon a time a girl with moonlight in her eyes
Put her hand in mine and said she loved me so
But that was once upon a time very long ago

Once upon a hill we sat beneath a willow tree
Counting all the stars and waiting for the dawn
But that was once upon a time, now the tree is gone

How the breeze ruffled through her hair
How we always laughed as though tomorrow wasn't there
We were young and didn't have a care
Where did it go?

Once upon a time the world was sweeter than we knew
Everything was ours, how happy we were then
But somehow once upon a time never comes again

[brief string interlude]

Once upon a time never comes again

ONE NOTE SAMBA (SAMBA DE UMA NOTA SO)

This is just a little samba, built upon a single note
Other notes are sure to follow but the root is still that note
Now this new note is the consequence of the one we've just been through
As I'm bound to be the unavoidable consequence of you
There's so many people who can talk and talk and talk
And just say nothing or nearly nothing
I have used up all the scale I know and at the end I've come
To nothing I mean nothing
So I come back to my first note as I must come back to you
I will pour into that one note all the love I feel for you
Any one who wants the whole show show do re mi fa so la ci do
He will find himself with no show better play the note you know

FRANK SINATRA
ONLY ONE TO A CUSTOMER

Only one to a customer, only one,
One crack at paradise, next to none,
Here am I riding high on a miracle come full blown,
Hold him tight through a night like I've never known.
Because there's only one kind of wonderful,
I still try it, you and that smile I see in your eyes,
You'll never know the feeling until you spent your life in line,
Only one to your customer, and this time, I got mine.

[musical interlude]

Only one to a customer, rarely two,
But when you got that dream, one will do,
Why despair at the fair possibility luck has flown,
Stick around, fend your ground, till the cards are shown.
Because there's only one way they won't come up all aces high,
That's it, you've let the deal pass you by,
Somebody up there bottle the thrill, and like the rarest wine,
If it's one to a customer, I say, just fine,
Only one to a customer, and this one, this little bird is mine

FRANK SINATRA
OUT BEYOND THE WINDOW

My window looks out over the park,
And every year I move another story up.
So now I'm almost close enough
To the roof of the sky to touch it.
I could even move the clouds aside,
But no clouds come, if they did, I'd welcome them.
'Cause I have very few visitors here any more.
There must be a highway somewhere, roads I've missed,
Something more than sky out beyond the window.

[music to the end]

FRANK SINATRA
PASS ME BY

(Pass me by, pass me by, if you don't happen to like it, pass me by)
I got me ten fine toes to wiggle in the sand,
Lots of idle fingers snap to my command,
A loverly pair of heels that kick to beat the band,
Contemplating nature can be fascinating,
Add to these a nose that I can thumb, and a mouth by gum have I
So tell the whole wide world, if you don't happen to like it,
Deal me out, thank you kindly, pass me by.

(So tell the whole wide world, if you don't happen to like it,)
(Deal me out, thank you kindly, pass me by.)
(Pass me by, pass me by, if you don't happen to like it, pass me by.)
Behold me two great shoes that never saw a shine,
Houses I could hold up with a laundry line.
A loverly patch that hide an awful lot of spine.
Shirtails flying, I'm a blooming dandelion.
Add to these, a grin from ear to ear, all the proper gear have I,
So tell the whole wide world, if you don't like the thought of it,
Bail me out, thank you kindly, pass me by.

PENNIES FROM HEAVEN

Every time it rains, it rains pennies from heaven
Don't you know each cloud contains pennies from heaven?
You'll find your fortune's fallin' all over the town
Be sure that your umbrella is upside down

Trade them for a package of sunshine and flowers
If you want the things you love, you must have showers
So, when you hear it thunder, don't run under a tree
There'll be pennies from heaven for you and me

[lengthy instrumental sax solo and then brass]

Every time, every time it rains, it's gonna rain pennies from heaven
Don't you know every cloud contains lots of pennies from heaven
You'll find your fortune's fallin', baby, all over the town
Be sure, be sure that your umbrella is upside down

Trade them for a package of sunshine and flowers
If you want the things you love, you've got to have showers
So, when you hear it thunder, don't run under a tree
There'll be pennies from heaven for you and me

FRANK SINATRA
PICK YOURSELF UP

Now nothing's impossible, I've found for when my chin is on the ground,
I pick myself up, dust myself off, and start all over again.
Don't lose your confidence if you slip, be grateful for a pleasant trip,
And pick yourself up, dust off, start over again.
Work like a soul inspired until the battle of the day is won.
You may be sick and tired, but you be a man, my son.
Will you remember the famous men who have to fall to rise again,
So take a deep breath, pick yourself up, start all over again.
[musical interlude]
You gotta work like a soul inspired until the battle of the day is won.
You may be sick and tired, but you be a man, my son.
Will you remember the famous men who have to fall and then to rise again,
So take a deep breath, pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again.
[musical interlude]
Once again now:
Will you remember the famous men who have to fall and then rise again,
So take a deep breath, pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again.

That's enough now.

PLEASE BE KIND

Well, this is my first affair, please be kind
Handle my heart with care, please be kind
This is all so grand, my dreams are on parade
If you'll just understand, they'll never, never fade

So tell me your love's sincere, please be kind
Tell me I needn't fear, please be kind
'cause if you leave me, dear, I know my heart will lose its mind
If you love me, please be kind

This is my first affair, so [trumpet blast] a please be kind
Handle my heart with care, oh [two trumpet blasts] a please be kind

So tell me your love's sincere, yes, please be kind
Tell me I needn't fear, please be kind
'cause if you leave me, dear, I know my heart will lose its mind
If you love me, baby, please be kind

FRANK SINATRA
PLEASE DON'T TALK ABOUT ME WHEN I'M GONE

Please don't talk about me when I'm gone,
Oh, honey though our friendship ceases, from now on;
And, listen, if you can't say anything real nice,
It's better not to talk at all, is my advice.

We're parting, you go your way I'll go mine,
It's best that we do;
Here's a kiss! I hope that this brings lots of luck to you.

Makes no difference how I carry on,
Remember, please don't talk about me when I'm gone.

POCKETFUL OF MIRACLES

Pee rac ti cal I ty de us n't int'rest me, love the life that I lead.
I've got a pocketful of miracles, and with a pocketful of miracles,
One miracle a day is all I need!
Tree rou bles, more or less, bee ah ther me, I guess when the sun doesn't shine.
But there's a pocketful of miracles,
The world's a bright and shiny apple that's mine, all mine.
I hear sleigh bells ringing, smack! I go around like there's a snow around,
I feel so good, it's Christmas every day! Lee ife's a carousel, fee ar as I can tell
And I'm riding for free.
I've got a pocketful of miracles, but if I had to pick a miracle,
My favorite miracle of all is you love me.

POLKA DOTS AND MOONBEAMS

[instrumental intro 1:43]

A country dance was being held in a garden
I felt a bump and heard an Oh, beg your pardon
Suddenly I saw polka dots and moonbeams
All around a pug nosed dream

The music started and was I the perplexed one
I held my breath and said May I have the next one?
In my frightened arms, polka dots and moonbeams
Sparkled on a pug nosed dream

There were questions in the eyes of other dancers
As we floated over the floor
There were questions but my heart knew all the answers
And perhaps a few things more

Now in a cottage built of lilacs and laughter
I know the meaning of the words Ever after
And I'll always see polka dots and moonbeams
When I kiss the pug nosed dream

FRANK SINATRA
POOR BUTTERFLY

Poor Butterfly, 'neath the blossoms waiting
Poor Butterfly, for she loved him so
The moments pass into hours
The hours pass into years, and as she smiles through her tears
She murmurs low, the moon and I know that he'll be faithful
I'm sure he'll come back by and by
But if he don't come back, I just must die, poor Butterfly

[Repeat, then modulate and repeat again]

FRANK SINATRA
PRETTY COLORS

I close my eyes and just see pretty colors,
They're dancing just for me, pretty colors (pretty colors)
Locked in my mind they'll always be,
You'll never give your love to me,
So I'll just close my eyes and just see pretty colors (pretty colors).
Locked in my mind they'll always be,
You'll never give your love to me,
So I'll just close my eyes and just see pretty colors (pretty colors)
Pretty colors (pretty colors), pretty colors

FRANK SINATRA
PRISONER OF LOVE

Alone from night to night you'll find me too weak to break the chains that bind me.
I need no shackles to remind me, I'm just a prisoner of love.
For one command, I stand and wait now from one who's master of my fate now.
I can't escape for it's too late now, I'm just a prisoner of love.
What's the good of my caring if someone is sharing those arms with me.
Although she has another, I can't find another for I'm not free.
She's in my dreams awake or sleeping, upon my knees to her I'm creeping,
My very life is in her keeping, I'm just a prisoner of love

FRANK SINATRA
PUT YOUR DREAMS AWAY

Put your dreams away for another day
And I will take their place in your heart
Wishing on a star never got you far
And so it's time to make a new start

When your dreams at night
Fade before you
Then I'll have the right
To adore you

Let your kiss confess this is happiness, darling
And put all your dreams away

[Musical Interlude]

When your dreams at night
Fade before you
Then I'll have the right
To adore you

Let your kiss confess this is happiness, darling
And put all your dreams away

QUIET NIGHTS OF QUIET STARS (CORCOVADO)

Quiet nights of quiet stars quiet chords from my guitar
Floating on the silence that surrounds us.
Quiet thoughts and quiet dreams quiet walks by quiet streams
And a window looking on the mountains and the sea, how lovely
This is where I want to be here with you so close to me
Until the final flicker of life's ember.
I who was lost and lonely believing love was only
A bitter tragic joke, have found with you, the meaning of existence, oh my love.

FRANK SINATRA
RAIN IN MY HEART

My eyes are dry, my love, since you've been gone, I haven't shed a tear,
I'll never cry, my love, though every day seems like a hundred years,
For I'm just a fool who clings to his pride but when I'm alone,
I can hear the sound of rain in my heart, of the tears that I hide,
And it tears me apart, 'cause I keep them inside,
I can't get away from the sound of the rain in my heart.
How could I know, my love, I was a toy, only a game to you?
How could you go, my love, without a thought of what I'm going through?
How can I forget I still love you so, it echoes each time that I hear
The sound of rain in my heart from the tears that I hide,
So it tears me apart, I still keep them inside,
But I can't escape from the sound of the rain in my heart.
I hear that rain in my heart of the tears that I hide
And it tears me apart, 'cause I keep them inside...

REACHING FOR THE MOON

The moon and you appear to be so near and yet so far from me,
And here am I, on a night in June, reaching for the moon and you.
I wonder if we'll ever meet, my song of love is incomplete,
I'm just the words, looking for the tune, reaching for the moon and you.

[musical interlude]

I wonder if we'll ever meet, my song of love is incomplete,
I'm just the words, looking for the tune, reaching for the moon and you.

FRANK SINATRA
REMEMBER

One little kiss, a moment of bliss, then hours of deep regret
One little smile, and after a while, a longing to forget
One little heartache left as a token
One little plaything carelessly broken

Remember the night
The night you said, I love you
Remember?

Remember you vowed
By all the stars above you
Remember?

Remember we found a lonely spot
And after I learned to care a lot

You promised that you'd forget me not
But you forgot
To remember


[2]
Into my dreams you wandered it seems, and then there came a day
You loved me too, my dreams had come true, and all the world was
May
But soon the Maytime turned to December
You had forgotten, do you remember?

FRANK SINATRA
RING A DING DING

Life is dull, it's nothing but one big lull, then presto you do a skull
And find that you're reeling, she sighs and you're feeling like a toy on a string
And your heart goes: Ring a ding ding, ring a ding ding, ring a ding ding
How could that funny face that seemed to be common place
Project you right in to space. without any warning
Don't know if its morning, night time, winter or spring
What's the difference: Ring a ding ding, ring a ding ding, ring a ding ding
She takes (grabs) your hand this captivating creature
And like its planned you're in the phone book looking (hunting) for the nearest preacher
Life is swell, you're off to that small hotel, and somewhere a village bell
Will sound in the steeple, announcing to people, Love's the loveliest thing
And the bell goes: Ring a ding ding, ring a ding ding, ring a ding ding

ROSES OF PICARDY

13, 1962, Los Angeles]

She is watching by the poplars,
Colinette with the sea blue eyes,
She is watching and longing, and waiting
Where the long white roadway lies,
And a song stirs in the silence,
As the wind in the boughs above,
She listens and starts and trembles,
'Tis the first little song of love.

Roses are shining in Picardy,
In the hush of the silver dew,
Roses are flow'ring in Picardy,
But there's never a rose like you!
And the roses will die with the summertime,
And our roads may be far apart,
But there's one rose that dies not in Picardy,
'Tis the rose that I keep in my heart

And the years fly on forever,
Till the shadows veil their skies,
But he loves to hold her little hands,
And look into her sea blue eyes,
And she sees the road by the poplars,
Where they met in the bygone years,
For the first little song of the roses,
Is the last little song she hears:

Roses are shining in Picardy,
In the hush of the silver dew,
Roses are flow'ring in Picardy,
But there's never a rose like you!
And the roses will die with the summertime,
And our roads may be far apart,
But there's one rose that dies not in Picardy,
'Tis the rose that I keep in my heart

FRANK SINATRA
SAND AND SEA

Sand and sea, sea and sand
And the warm bright sun up there above
Summer days, happy days
With my love

Sand and sea, sea and sand
Hear the wings in flight of the lovely dove
Summer nights, happy nights
We were makin' love

The blinking stars are dancing on the whitecaps
Crazy stars, they've had too many nightcaps
I touch your hand, the hand that lies beside me
Paradise can't be far if you'll guide me

Sand and sea, sea and sand
And the angels sing from above
Happy days, hey, happy nights
Makin' love

Sand and sea, sea and sand
And the angels sing from above
Happy days, happy nights
Makin' love

We're in love
Oooh oooh makin' love

[Fade]

Sand and sea

SATISFY ME ONE MORE TIME

Don't deny me, satisfy me one more time,
Barricade me and invade me, just one more time.
Sacrifice me, don't be nice, be wild and free.
Make a sex pot symbol out of little old me,
Caress me, molest me, one more time,
Excuse me and abuse me one more time.
Excite me and ignite me with your sweet torso.
Use your muscles, my corpuscles, wanna go.
Assault me, attack me, lose control.
Let's smother each other in a good old strangle hold.
There's nothing but loving on my mind.
Don't deny me, satisfy me one more time.
Compromise me, vandalize me, have a ball,
Destroy me and restore me through it all.
Demolish, disassemble and dismantle all my doubts,
It's confusing, I don't know my whereabouts.
Bite my ears, baby, nibble on my nose
Let your dimples put those pimples on my toes.
There's sugar oozing over from my elbows to my knees,
So cover me with kisses, get yourself some calories,
If you don't want me climbing up the wall,
Don't fool around my fertile ground at all.
While the cold is getting colder, just be sure,
Everything's up in my body's temperature, jack it up.
They're still a lot of groovy good things on the shelf,
When you reach the cookie jar, just help yourself,
Saying nothing, but the loving on my mind.
Don't deny me, satisfy me one more time.
Encore, encore, encore.

FRANK SINATRA
SAY HELLO

Just say hello to a brand new world, the world outside your door,
Say hello to a singing bird, like no bird you heard before,
It's all there, go and grab your share, life is a great big show,
So go and introduce yourself, say hello, say hello.
Say howdy do to a brand new man who's just begun to live.
Howdy do to a brand new man with lots of love to give.
Shake my hand, watch my chest expand,
You, you wanna see me close and simply introduce yourself,
Say hello, say hello.
Let me repeat, from a front row seat, your eyes can see it all,
Yea I repeat, there's lots of hight to beat, and as a slice a very small,
Life, I mean, can be seen seeking you, you are in charge, you know,
So introduce yourself to life, say hello, just just say hello.

FRANK SINATRA
SEARCHING

All our days, we searched for just one love, wait for that one kiss,
In a word, we spend our life just waiting to give our hearts away,
Searching all our lives for that special day,
And then one day you come upon a smile, unlike, unlike any smile.
In a word, the searching is done, you come upon the only one,
She stands there looking at you, simply says, how do you do,
And all the searching is through.

[musical interlude]

In a word, the searching is done, you come upon the only one,
She stands there looking at you, and simply says. how do you do.
And all the searching is through.

FRANK SINATRA
SECRET LOVE

Once I had a secret love that lived within the heart of me,
All too soon my secret love became impatient to be free.
So I asked a friendly star the way that lovers often do
Just how wonderful you are and why I'm so in love with you.
Now I shout it from the highest hill, even told the golden daffodils,
And now my heart's an open door, and my secret love's no secret any more.

FRANK SINATRA
SEND IN THE CLOWNS

[Spoken intro]
This is a song about a couple of adult people who have spent, oh, quite a long time
together, till one day
one of 'em gets restless and decides to leave. Whether it's the man or woman who left is unimportant.
It's a breakup.
It's a lovely marriage of words and music, written by Stephen Sondheim.


Isn't it rich? Are we a pair?
Me here at last on the ground and you in mid air
Send in the clowns

Isn't it bliss? Don't you approve?
One who keeps tearing around and one who can't move
But where are the clowns? Send in the clowns

Just when I stopped opening doors
Finally finding the one that I wanted was yours
Making my entrance again with my usual flair

Sure of my lines
Nobody's there

Don't you love a farce? My fault, I fear
I thought that you'd want what I want, sorry my dear
But where are the clowns? Send in the clowns
Don't bother they're here

Isn't it rich? Isn't it queer?
Losing my timing this late in my career
But where are the clowns? Send in the clowns
Well, maybe next year

SEPTEMBER SONG

[Lengthy Intro:]
When I was a young man courting the girls
I played me a waiting game
If a maid refused me with tossing curls
I'd let the old Earth make a couple of whirls
While I plied her with tears in lieu of pearls
And as time came around she came my way
As time came around, she came

When you meet with the young girls early in the Spring
You court them in song and rhyme
They answer with words and a clover ring
But if you could examine the goods they bring
They have little to offer but the songs they sing
And the plentiful waste of time of day
A plentiful waste of time


Oh, it's a long, long while from May to December
But the days grow short when you reach September
When the autumn weather turns the leaves to flame
One hasn't got time for the waiting game

Oh, the days dwindle down to a precious few
September, November
And these few precious days I'll spend with you
These precious days I'll spend with you

FRANK SINATRA
SERENADE IN BLUE

When I hear that serenade in blue
I'm somewhere in another world, alone with you
Sharing all the joys we used to know, many moons ago.
Once again your face comes back to me
Just like the theme of some forgotten melody
In the album of my memory, serenade in blue
It seems like only yesterday, the small cafe, a crowded floor
And as we danced the night away, I hear you say forever more
And then the song became a sigh
Forever more became goodbye
Cause you remained in my heart, but
Tell me darling in there still a spark?
Or only lonely ashes of the flame we knew
Should I go on whistling in the dark, serenade in blue.

FRANK SINATRA
SHE SAYS

She says she's sleeping well, she says she's lost some weight
She says she's seen some shows, she says the city's strange
(So she says) She says the weather's cold, she says there's been some rain
She says there's lots to see, she says she hopes we're fine (So she says)
(So she says) The price is high, high as the sky
And she says, she says, she's comin' home

FRANK SINATRA
SINCE MARIE HAS LEFT PAREE

There's no guy in France, for in France there's no romance,
Since Marie has left Paree.
Every ship that sails took the cargo full of mail,
'Cause Marie has left Paree.
No amour, no more like they used to have before,
There's no Marie, she moved to gay Napoli.
Say bon voyage, I got to go,
Where's my corsage? Where's my chapeau?
Bye bye Paree, I'm off to Napoli.

[musical interlude]

There's no Marie, she flew off to Napoli.
Say bon voyage, I got to go
Where's my corsage? Where's my chapeau?
Bye bye, 'cause Marie has left Paree,
Bye bye Paree, I'm jumping off to Napoli.

FRANK SINATRA
SO IN LOVE (REPRISE)

Strange dear, but true, dear, when I'm close to you, dear
The stars fill the sky, so in love with you am I.
Even without you, my arms fold about you,
You know darling why, so in love with you am I.
In love with the night mysterious, the night when you first were there.
In love with my joy delirious, when I knew that you could care.
So taunt me, and hurt me, deceive me, desert me,
I'm yours till I die, so in love, so in love so in love with you, my love, am I.

FRANK SINATRA
SOFTLY, AS I LEAVE YOU

Softly, I will leave you softly
For my heart would break if you should wake and see me go
So I leave you softly, long before you miss me
Long before your arms can beg me stay
For one more hour or one more day
After all the years, I can't bear the tears to fall
So, softly as I leave you there

(Softly, long before you kiss me)
(Long before your arms can beg me stay)
(For one more hour) or one more day
After all the years, I can't bear the tears to fall
So, softly as I leave you there
As I leave I you there
As I leave I you there

FRANK SINATRA
SOLILOQUY

I wonder what he'll think of me
I guess he'll call me the old man
I guess he'll think I can lick
Ev'ry other fella's father
Well, I can!

I bet that he turns out to be
The spittin' image of his dad
But he'll have more common sense
Than his puddin' headed father ever had

I'll teach him to wrassle and dive through a wave
When we go in the morning for our swim
His mother can teach him the way to behave
But she won't make a sissy out o' him
Not him! Not my boy! Not Bill!

Bill. I will see that he is named after me, I will.
My boy, Bill, he'll be tall and tough as a tree, will Bill!
Like a tree he'll grow with his head held high
And his feet planted firm on the ground
And you won't see nobody dare to try to boss or toss him around!
No pot bellied, baggy eyed bully'll boss him around

I don't give a damn what he does as long as he does what he likes!
He can sit on his tail or work on a rail with a hammer and hammer in spikes!
He can ferry a boat on a river or peddle a pack on his back
Or work up and down the streets of a town with a whip and a horse and a hack

He can haul a scow along a canal, run a cow around a corral
Or maybe bark for a carousel
Of course, it takes talent to do that well


He might be a champ of the heavyweights or a fella that sells you glue
Or President of the United States, that'd be all right, too

[Spoken:]
His mother would like that, but he wouldn't be President unless he wanted to be

Not Bill!

My boy, Bill he'll be tall and as tough as a tree, will Bill
Like a tree he'll grow with his head held high
And his feet planted firm on the ground
And you won't see nobody dare to try to boss or toss him around!
No fat bottomed, flabby faced, pot bellied, baggy eyed bully'll boss him around

And I'll be damned if he'll marry his boss's daughter
A skinny lipped virgin with blood like water
Who'll give him a peck and call it a kiss
And look in his eyes through a *lorgnette*
Hey, why am I takin' on like this?
My kid ain't even been born yet!

I can see him when he's seventeen or so and startin' in to go with a girl
I can give him lots of pointers, very sound, on the way to get 'round any girl
I can tell him
Wait a minute!
Could it be?
What the hell!
What if he is a girl?
You can have fun with a son
But you got to be a father to a girl

She mighn't be so bad,at that
A kid with ribbons in her hair!
A kind of neat and petite little tin type of her mother!
What a pair!

My little girl, pink and white as peaches and cream is she
My little girl is half again as bright as girls were meant to be!
Dozens of boys pursue her, many a likely lad
Does what he can to woo her from her faithful dad

She has a few pink and white young fellas of two and three
But my little girl gets hungry ev'ry night and she comes home to me!

I gotta get ready before she comes
Gotta make certain that she won't be dragged up in slums with a lot o' bums like me
She's gotta be sheltered and fed and dressed in the best that money can buy!
I never knew how to get money but, I'll try, by God! I'll try!
I'll go out and make it or steal it
Or take it or die!

SOME ENCHANTED EVENING

Some enchanted evening, you may see a stranger,
You may see a stranger across a crowded room,
And somehow you know, you know even then,
That somehow you'll see here again and again.
Some enchanted evening, someone may be laughing,
You may hear her laughing across a crowded room,
And night after night, as strange as it seems,
The sound of her laughter will sing in your dreams.
Who can explain it, who can tell you why?
Fools give you reasons, wise men never try.
Some enchanted evening, when you find your true love,
When you hear her call you across a crowded room,
Then fly to her side and make her your own,
Or all through your life you may dream all alone.
Once you have found her, never let her go,
Once you have found her, never let her go.

SOME TRAVELING MUSIC

[music intro]

How can you say something new about being alone,
Tell somebody you're a loner?
Right away they think you're lonely,
It's not the same thing, you know.
It's not wanting to put all your marbles in one pocket.
And that's caring enough not to care too much.
Mostly, I guess it's letting yourself come first for a while.

[music interlude]

One day, I'm gonna find me an island, a think place,
Go there with a mess of records and a ukalele,
Just sit strumming, I might even do some thinking,
About the women and the towns that I left behind.

[music to the end]

FRANK SINATRA
SOMEONE TO LIGHT UP MY LIFE

Go on your way with the cloudless blue sky above
May all your days be a wonderful song of love
Open your arms and sing of all the hidden hopes you'll ever treasure
And live out your life in peace
Where shall I look for the love to replace you, someone to light up my life
Someone with strange little ways, eyes like a blue autumn haze
Someone with your laughing style,
And a smile that I know will keep haunting me endlessly
Sometimes in stars or the swift flight of seabirds, I catch a moment of you
Thats why I walk all alone. searching for something unknown
Searching for something or someone to light up my life

FRANK SINATRA
SOMETHIN' STUPID

I know I stand in line until you think you have the time
To spend an evening with me
And if we go someplace to dance, I know that there's a chance
You won't be leaving with me
And afterwards we drop into a quiet little place and have a drink or two
And then I go and spoil it all by saying something stupid like I love you

I can see it in your eyes
That you despise the same old lies you heard the night before
And though it's just a line to you, for me it's true
And never seemed so right before

I practice every day to find some clever lines to say
To make the meaning come through
But then I think I'll wait until the evening gets late and I'm alone with you
The time is right, your perfume fills my head, the stars get red and, oh, the night's so blue
And then I go and spoil it all by saying something stupid like I love you

[instrumental]

SOMETHING

Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover
Something in the way that she woos me
Don't want to leave her now
Better believe, and how

Somewhere in her smile she knows
I don't need no other lover
Something in her style that shows me
Don't want to leave her now
Better believe, and how

You're asking me will my love grow
Well, I don't know, no, I don't know
You stick around, Jack, it might show
I don't know, no, I don't know

SOMEWHERE IN YOUR HEART

Somewhere in your heart, try to find a place for me
Somewhere in your heart, I won't care where it might be
One little corner may not mean so much to you
But one little corner would be enough to see me through

Somewhere in your dreams, let my lips come close to you
Though they're only dreams, someday they may all come true
Is it so much to ask for such a tiny part?
Won't you find a place for me, somewhere in your heart?

SOMEWHERE MY LOVE

Somewhere, my love, there will be songs to sing
Although the snow covers the hopes of Spring
Somewhere a hill blossoms in green and gold
And there are dreams, all that your heart can hold
Someday we'll meet again, my love
Someday whenever the Spring breaks through

You'll come to me out of the long ago
Warm as the wind, soft as the kiss of snow
Till then, my sweet, think of me now and then
Godspeed, my love, till you are mine again

[jazz instrumental first four lines]

Someday we'll meet again, my love
I said someday whenever that Spring breaks through

You'll come to me out of the long ago
Warm as the wind, and as soft as the kiss of snow
Till then, my sweet, think of me now and then
Godspeed, my love, till you are mine again!

SONG SUNG BLUE

[instrumental intro]

Song sung blue, everybody knows one
Song sung blue, every garden grows one
Me and you are subject to the blues now and then
But when ya take the blues and make a song
Ya sing 'em out again

Song sung blue, weepin' like a willow
Song sung blue, sleepin' on my pillow
Funny thing, but you can sing it with a cry in your voice
And before you know, it starts to feelin' good
Ya simply got no choice

(Song sung blue), everybody knows one
(Song sung blue), every garden grows one
Me and you are subject to the blues now and then

SOUTH TO A WARMER PLACE

I'd be glad to stay right here with you
Fact is, that is what I'd planned to
But from that fool look on your face
I think I'll head South to a warmer place

Thought I'd given you the best of me
I'd be glad to share the rest of me
But there's a chill in your embrace
So, I'd better head South to a warmer place

Seems like yesterday we could kiss and build a fire
But now it's ten below
Seems like yesterday nights were warm with love's desire
But now it feels like snow

I don't mind a cold day now and then
But this long deep freeze has done me in
And it's too late to plead your case
So I'm goin' South to a warmer place

STAR!

If the lady's naughty but proper
If the lady's chic er than chic
If her escorts must wear a topper
And each man's the man of the week
If she rides around in a brand new foreign car
The chances are the lady's a star

If the lady's utterly charming
If the lady's chummy with kings
If her whims are close to alarming
And it's known she's thrown a few things
If they've got a drink with her name in Jilly's bar
The chances are the lady's a star

If her smallest party is really expensive with tons of expensive caviar
If the lady is someone with the same credentials
Someone with the same essentials
Someone who is worshipped from afar
She's a genuine, positive, totally, marvelous, perfectly, wonderful
She's a great big, great big star!

FRANK SINATRA
STARDUST

(Sometimes I wonder why I spend the lonely nights) dreamin' of a song
The melody haunts my reverie and I am once again with you
(When our love was new) and each kiss an inspiration
Oh, but that was long ago, and now my consolation is in the
stardust of a song

(And beside a garden wall, when the stars were bright)
You were in my arms, the nightingale told its fairy tale of paradise where roses grew.
Though I dream in vain, in my heart it always will remain
My stardust melody (the memory of love's refrain)

STARGAZER

Stargazer! You with your head in the heavens,
You'll never get by, walking that high off the ground.
Hey, moon dreamer, I've been around and I see it,
That higher you get, the harder they let you down.
You pay your dues, it seems forever,
And if you're clever, you may be in for a while, then you're out of style.
Hey, stargazer, probably think I'm crazy, and you haven't heard one single word I said.
No I don't want to burst your bubble, but you got trouble,
Don't you know the higher the top, the longer the drop,
Hey, stargazer (jump on it, Sam, get all over that thing!).
No I don't want to burst your bubble, but you got trouble,
Don't you know the higher the top, the longer the drop,
Hey, stargazer! Stargazer, stargazer, stargazer! You moon dreamer, you moon dreamer!

FRANK SINATRA
STAY WITH ME (MAIN THEME FROM THE CARDINAL)

Should my heart not be humble, should my eyes fail to see,
Should my feet sometimes stumble on the way, stay with me.
Like the lamb that in springtime wanders far from fold,
Comes the darkness and the frost, I get lost, I grow cold.
I grow cold, I grow weary, and I know I have sinned,
And I go seeking shelter and I cry in the wind,
And though I grope and I blunder and I kneel and I'm wrong,
Though the rose buckles under where I walk, walk along
Till I find to my wonder every task least to see,
Or that I can do it, pray, stay with me.
Stay with me.

STORMY WEATHER

Don't know why there's no sun up in the sky
Stormy weather
Since my gal and I ain't together
Keeps rainin' all the time

Life is bare, gloom and misery everywhere
Stormy weather
Just can't get my poor old self together
I'm weary all the time, the time
So weary all the time

When she went away, the blues walked in and they met me
If she stays away, that old rockin' chair's gonna get me
All I do is pray the Lord above will let me
Walk in the sun once more

Can't go on, everything I had is gone
Stormy weather
Since my gal and I ain't together
Keeps rainin' all the time
Keeps rainin' all the time

STRANGERS IN THE NIGHT

Strangers in the night exchanging glances
Wond'ring in the night what were the chances
We'd be sharing love before the night was through

Something in your eyes was so inviting
Something in you smile was so exciting
Something in my heart told me I must have you

Strangers in the night
Two lonely people, we were strangers in the night
Up to the moment when we said our first hello little did we know
Love was just a glance away, a warm embracing dance away

and

Ever since that night we've been together
Lovers at first sight, in love forever
It turned out so right for strangers in the night

[instrumental first three lines of chorus]
Love was just a glance away, a warm embracing dance away

Ever since that night we've been together
Lovers at first sight, in love forever
It turned out so right for strangers in the night

STREET OF DREAMS

Love laughs at a king, kings don't mean a thing on the street of dreams
Dreams broken in two can be made like new on the street of dreams

Gold, silver and gold
All you can hold's up there on a moonbeam
Poor, there ain't nobody poor
Long as love is sure on the street of dreams

[instrumental]

All the gold, silver and gold
All you can hold's up there on a moonbeam
Poor, nobody's poor
Long as love is sure on the street of dreams

STYLE

(Bing Crosby) [Dean Martin]

Some people dress 'cause they dress when they dress,
But he gets dressed to get dressed.
(It's only a hunch but I bet you a bunch)
(He wears suspenders, a belt and a vest,)
[From the tip of his toes to his head,]
[He looks like an unmade bed.]

You've either got or you haven't got style.
(If you got it, you stand out a mile.)
A flower's not a flower if it's wilted,
(A hat's not a hat till it's tilted.)
[You either got or you haven't got class.]
[How it draws the applause of the masses.]


(You either got, or you haven't got,)
[Got or you haven't got,] ,

You've either got or you haven't got style, (got or you haven't got style).
[If you got it, it stands out a mile,] (if you got it, it stands out a mile.).
With mother of pearl kind of buttons,
(You look like the Astors and Huttons.)
[You either got or you haven't got class,] (got or you haven't got class.)
How it draws the applause of the masses.


(You've either got, or you haven't style) [got or you haven't got style
(Style and charm seem to go arm in arm,) [seem togo arm in arm.].
[A flower's not a flower] (if it's wilted,)
[A hat's not a hat till it's tilted.]
(You've either got or you haven't got style,) [got or you haven't got style,]
[If you got it, you stands out a mile,] if you got it, you stand out a mile
(Got it you stand out,) got it you stand out a mile.


You've either got or you haven't got, (got or you haven't got,)
[Got or you haven't got,]

Come on , get some clothes on, we're gonna be late for breakfast.

SUMMER ME, WINTER ME

Summer me, winter me
And with your kisses, morning me, evening me
And as the world slips far away, a star away
Forever me with love

Wonder me, wander me
Then by a fire pleasure me, peaceful me
And in the silence quietly, whisper me
Forever me with love

And ev'ry day I'll gentle you, tender you
And oh, the way I'll velvet you, clover you
I'll wrap you up and ribbon you, rainbow you
And shower you with shine!

Suddenly, magically, we found each other
There we were, here we are
I plan to let you happy me, summer me, winter me, always

[instrumental]

Then suddenly, magically, we found each other
There we were, here we are
I plan to let you happy me, summer me, winter me, always be mine

FRANK SINATRA
SUMMER WIND

The summer wind, came blowin' in from across the sea
It lingered there to touch your hair and walk with me
All summer long we sang a song and then we strolled that golden sand
Two sweethearts and the summer wind

Like painted kites, those days and nights, they went flyin' by
The world was new beneath a blue umbrella sky
Then softer than a piper man one day it called to you
I lost you, I lost you to the summer wind

The autumn wind and the winter winds, they have come and gone
And still the days, those lonely days, they go on and on
And guess who sighs his lullabies through nights that never end
My fickle friend, the summer wind

The summer wind
Warm summer wind
Mmm, the summer wind

FRANK SINATRA
SUNNY

Never comb your hair, sun ny!
Leave the breez es there, sun ny!
Let your stock ing fall down,
For shock ing the town is all that you do.
Smil ing all the while, tom boy
Where'd you get your smile from boy?
Lit tle sun ny girl,
Be my hon ey girl, I'm for you!

FRANK SINATRA
SUNRISE IN THE MORNING

And on that dawn just when the day was breaking,
I saw your face everywhere.
And on that morning, love was in the making,
I heard your voice, I hear music, I've no care.
Sunrise in the morning, stay awhile, you know that I'll
Be thinking of you now and everyday.
Make it worth my while, I'll see that you will always smile.
And never stray, you stay baby, I'll pray.
On that sweet night I looked at moonbeams clearly,
Moonbeams dancing in your eyes.
And it was right I know I loved you dearly,
I saw your face, I hear music, I've no care.
Sunset in the evening, stay awhile, you know that I'll
Be thinking of you now and everyday.
Make it worth my while, I'll see that you will always smile.
And never stray, you stay, baby, I'll pray.
Stay awhile, you know that I'll
Be thinking of you now and everyday.
Make it worth my while, I'll see that you will always smile.
And never stray, you stay, baby, I'll pray.
Please stay, baby, I'll pray. Oh, you stay, baby, I'll pray.
Please stay, baby I'll pray..

SWEET CAROLINE

Where it began, I can't begin to knowing
But then I know it's growing strong
Was in the spring, then spring became the summer
Who'd have believed you'd come along.
Hands, touching hands, reaching out, touching me, touching you

[Chorus:]
Sweet Caroline, good times never seemed so good
I'd be inclined to believe they never would, so good, so good

Look at the night and it don't seem so lonely
We filled it up with only two, and when I hurt
Hurting runs off my shoulder
How can I hurt when I'm holding you
One, touching one, reaching out, touching me, touching you

[Chorus]

FRANK SINATRA
SWEET LORRAINE

I just found joy
I'm as happy as a baby boy
With another brand new choo choo toy
When I'm with my sweet Lorraine

She got a pair of eyes
That are bluer than the summer skies
When you see them you will realize
Why I love my sweet Lorraine

When it's rainin' I don't miss the sun
'cause it's in my sweetie's smile
Just to think that I'm the lucky one
Who will lead her down the aisle

Each night I pray
That nobody steals her heart away
I can't wait until that happy day
When I marry sweet Lorraine

[instrumental]

When it's rainin' I never miss the sun
'cause it's in my sweetie's smile
Just to think that I'm the lucky one
Who's gonna lead her down the aisle

Every night I pray
That nobody steals her heart away
I can't wait until that lucky day
When I marry Lorraine

FRANK SINATRA
SWINGING ON A STAR

Would you like to swing on a star?
Carry moonbeams home in a jar?
And be better off than you are?
Or would you rather be a mule?

A mule is an animal with long, funny ears
He kicks up at anything he hears
His back is brawny and his brain is weak
He's just plain stupid with a stubborn streak
And, by the way, if you hate to go to school
You may grow up to be a mule

Or would you like to swing on a star?
Carry moonbeams home in a jar?
And be better off than you are?
Or would you rather be a pig?

A pig is an animal with dirt on his face
His shoes are a terrible disgrace
He's got no manners when he eats his food
He's fat and lazy and extremely rude
But if you don't care a feather or a fig
You may grow up to be a pig

[instrumental first 3 lines of chorus]
Or would you rather be a fish?

A fish won't do anything but swim in a brook
He can't write his name or read a book
To fool all the people is his only thought
Though he's slippery, he still gets caught
But then if that sort of life is what you wish
You may grow up to be a fish

And all the monkeys aren't in a zoo
Every day you meet quite a few
So you see, it's all up to you
You can be better than you are

You could be swingin' on a star

FRANK SINATRA
TAKE ME

Take me, I'm yours if you'll take me, I want you to make me a part of your heart.
And hold me, I dreamed you would hold me, now really enfold me, say we'll never part.
All the love I have to give, I want to give to you,
And as long as I shall live, I'll only live for you,
Take me, and never forsake me,
My darling, please take me and make your own, and make me your own.

FRANK SINATRA
TALK TO ME BABY

If you cannot toss your heart gaily in the ring,
Love me while the moment lingers,
If you cannot cross your heart that I'm everything,
Try at least to cross your fingers.
Talk to me, baby, tell me lies,
Tell me lies as sweet as apple pie.
Whisper you tremble with a wild desire
To light the fire in my eyes.
Tell me I'm marvelous, exaggerate!
Prevaricate if you must.
Just talk to me, baby, soft and low,
Then if you decide it's really so,
Swear you be mine forever, otherwise just talk to me,
And tell me lies, lies, lies, lies,
Great, big, great big lies.

FRANK SINATRA
TANGERINE

He: Tangerine, she is all they claim
With her eyes of night and lips as bright as flame
Tangerine, when she dances by, senoritas stare and caballeros sigh
And I've seen toasts to Tangerine
Raised in every bar across the Argentine
Yes, she has them all on the run, but her heart belongs to just one
Her heart belongs to Tangerine
She: Tangerine, she is all they say
With mascara'd eye and chapeaux by Dache.
Tangerine, with her lips of flame
If the color keeps, Louis Philippe's to blame.
And I've seen clothes on Tangerine
Where the label says From Macy's Mezzanine .
Yes, she's got the guys in a whirl, but she's only fooling one girl
She's only fooling Tangerine!

FRANK SINATRA
TEACH ME TONIGHT

Did you say (that) I've got a lot to learn, well don't think I'm trying not to learn
Since this is the perfect spot to learn, teach me tonight
Starting with the ABC of it, getting right down to the XYZ of it
Help me solve the mystery of it, teach me tonight
The sky's a blackboard high above you, a nd if a shooting star goes by
I'll use that star to write I love you , a thousand times across the sky
One thing isn't very clear my love, teachers shouldn't stand so near my love
Graduation's almost here my love, you'd better teach me tonight
I've played loves scenes in a flick or two, and I've also met a chick or two
But I still can learn a trick or two, hey teach me tonight
I who thought I knew the score of it, kind of think I should know much more of it
Off the wall, the bed, the floor of it, hey teach me tonight
The midnight hours come slowly creeping when there's no one there but you
There must be more to life than sleeping single in a bed for two
What I need most is post graduate, what I feel is hard to articulate
If you want me to matriculate, you'd better teach me tonight
What do you get for lessons, teach me come on and teach me teach me tonight

FRANK SINATRA
TELL HER (YOU LOVE HER EACH DAY)

(Tell her you love her) each day
You'll make her happy that way
A simple I love you means more than money
And, with a kiss or two her life is sunny

Give her a reason to live
She needs the love that you give
Always remember that is what she lives for
She hopes you love her
Tell her you love her
Tell her you love her today

(Give her a reason to live)
(She needs the love that you give)
Always remember that is what she lives for
She hopes you love her
Tell her you love her
Tell her you love her today

FRANK SINATRA
THANKS FOR THE MEMORY

Thanks for the memory
Of things I can't forget, journeys on a jet
Our wond'rous week in Martinique and Vegas and roulette
How lucky I was

And thanks for the memory
Of summers by the sea, dawn in Waikiki
We had a pad in London but we didn't stop for tea
How cozy it was

Now since our breakup I wake up
Alone on a gray morning after
I long for the sound of your laughter
And then I see the laugh's on me

But, thanks for the memory
Of every touch a thrill, I've been through the mill
I've lived a lot and learned a lot, you loved me not and still
I miss you so much

Thanks for the memory
Of how we used to jog even in a fog
That barbecue in Malibu, away from all the smog
How rainy it was

Thanks for the memory
Of letters I destroyed, books that we enjoyed
Tonight the way things look, I need a book by Sigmund Freud
How brainy he was

Gone are those evenings on Broadway
Together we'd go to a great show
But now I begin with the Late Show
And wish that you were watching, too

I know it's a fallacy
That grown men never cry, baby, that's a lie
We had our bed of roses, but forgot that roses die
And thank you so much

FRANK SINATRA
THAT'S ALL

I can only give you love that lasts forever,
And the promise to be near each time you call,
And the only heart I own is yours and yours alone, that's all, that's all.
I can only give you country walks in springtime,
And a hand to hold when leaves begin to fall,
And a love whose burning light to warm the winter night, that's all, that's all.
There are those I am sure who have told you,
They will give you the world for a toy.
All I ask for these arms to enfold you, and a love, time can never destroy.
If you're wond'ring what I'm asking in return, dear,
You'll be glad to know that my demands are small.
Say it's me that you'll adore for now and ever more, that's all, that's all.

FRANK SINATRA
THAT'S LIFE

That's life (that's life), that's what all the people say
You're ridin' high in April, shot down in May
But I know I'm gonna change that tune
When I'm back on top, back on top in June

I said that's life (that's life), and as funny as it may seem
Some people get their kicks stompin' on a dream
But I don't let it, let it get me down
'cause this fine old world, it keeps spinnin' around

I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn and a king
I've been up and down and over and out and I know one thing
Each time I find myself flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race

That's life (that's life), I tell you I can't deny it
I thought of quitting, baby, but my heart just ain't gonna buy it
And if I didn't think it was worth one single try
I'd jump right on a big bird and then I'd fly

I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn and a king
I've been up and down and over and out and I know one thing
Each time I find myself layin' flat on my face
I just pick myself up and get back in the race

That's life (that's life), that's life and I can't deny it
Many times I thought of cuttin' out but my heart won't buy it
But if there's nothin' shakin' come this here July
I'm gonna roll myself up in a big ball a and die

My, my!

FRANK SINATRA
THAT'S WHAT GOD LOOKS LIKE TO ME

One day as I walked with my son hand in hand,
He said, there are things that I don't understand,
How high is the sky? what makes it so blue?
And tell me, dad, what does God look like to you?
I said, He looks like a rainbow, just after the rain,
He's as golden as wheat dancing over the plain.
He looks like the star when the night's crystal clear,
He looks like a baby when mother is near.
His face is the moonlight reflected on snow,
His hair like garden where all flowers grow,
He's heavenly eyes are as true as the sea,
My son, that's what God really looks like.
His heart like a mountain so vast and so strong,
That's why all his children have room to belong.
His smile is the morning we waken to see,
But you, my son, you are what God really looks like to me.

FRANK SINATRA
THE BEAUTIFUL STRANGERS

All the beautiful strangers who held me for a night,
And fell down in the darkness on pillows soft and white,
All the beautiful strangers, all in the afternoon,
Who praised my flat little summer, and came back to my room,
All the beautiful strangers, they spoiled me for a time,
And they taught me neon's just as nice as afternoon sunshine.

FRANK SINATRA
THE BELLS OF CHRISTMAS (GREENSLEEVES)

The bells, the bells,
Ringing everywhere for the sound of christmas is in the air,
The bells, the bells,
From the steeple above, telling us it's the season of love,
Ring out,
Let the tale be told that inspires the dream of the young and old,
Love, love,
Let your hearts unfold, for the bells of christmas are ringing.

The bells, the bells,
On a wintry night, with the friendly fire burning warm and bright,
The bells, the bells,
On the steeple above, telling us it's the season of love.
Ring out,
Let the tale be told, that inspires the dream of the young and old,
Love, love,
Let your hearts unfold, for the bells of christmas are ringing.

The bells, the bells,
They've been here and now, to a world that almost forgotten how
The bells, the bells,
From the steeple above, telling us it's the season of love.
Ring out,
Let the tale be told that inspires the dream of the young and old,
Love, love,
Let your hearts unfold, for the bells of christmas are ringing.
The bells of christmas are ringing

THE BEST IS YET TO COME

Out of the tree of life I just picked me a plum
You came along and everything's startin' to hum
Still, it's a real good bet, the best is yet to come

Best is yet to come and babe, won't that be fine?
You think you've seen the sun, but you ain't seen it shine

a Wait till the warm up's underway
Wait till our lips have met
And wait till you see that sunshine day
You ain't seen nothin' yet

The best is yet to come and babe, won't it be fine?
Best is yet to come, come the day you're mine

Come the day you're mine
I'm gonna teach you to fly
We've only tasted the wine
We're gonna drain the cup dry

Wait till your charms are right for these arms to surround
You think you've flown before, but baby, you ain't left the ground

a Wait till you're locked in my embrace
Wait till I draw you near
a Wait till you see that sunshine place
Ain't nothin' like it here

The best is yet to come and babe, won't it be fine?
The best is yet to come, come the day you're mine

Come the day you're mine
And you're gonna be mine

FRANK SINATRA
THE BEST OF EVERYTHING

The best of everything that's (that is) what I wish you all
The best of everything a Rembrandt (hanging) on your (the) wall
A yacht that wins you cups, skateboards with style and speed
Show dogs or loving pups, the pride of the pound or the pedigreed
I hope you win that prize pass that blue ribbon test
I hope your good keeps getting better 'til your better's best
With every wine you taste, with every song you sing
By now you may have guest, I hope you get the best of everything

THE BOYS' NIGHT OUT

Hey there, mister, build a fence 'round your sister, it's the...
The boys' night out.
Hey there, buster, it's the indians after custer, it's the.
The boys' night out.
They're out to do the town, and before they're through,
It's bound to be liken to.
The night they lost the titanic and the wall street panic.
What they're seeking is a little chickie chicking, it's the..
The boys' night out,
And that moon's about as big as a honey dew,
It's the boys' night out, and they're so romantic, I'll give you a clue,
What the boys are out after, the girls are out after too.

THE CHRISTMAS WALTZ

Frosted window panes, candles gleaming inside
Painted candy canes on the tree
Santa's on his way, he's filled his sleigh with things
Things for you and for me

It's that time of year when the world falls in love
Ev'ry song you hear seems to say Merry Christmas,
May your New Year dreams come true
And this song of mine in three quarter time
Wishes you and yours the same thing, too

[instrumental first verse]

THE COFFEE SONG

Way down among Brazilians
Coffee beans grow by the billions
So they've got to find those extra cups to fill
They've got an awful lot of coffee in Brazil

You can't get cherry soda
'cause they've got to fill that quota
And the way things are I'll bet they never will
They've got a zillion tons of coffee in Brazil

No tea or tomato juice
You'll see no potato juice
'cause the planters down in Santos all say No, no, no

The politician's daughter
Was accused of drinkin' water
And was fined a great big fifty dollar bill
They've got an awful lot of coffee in Brazil

[instrumental break]

You date a girl and find out later
She smells just like a percolator
Her perfume was made right on the grill
Why, they could percolate the ocean in Brazil

And when their ham and eggs need savor
Coffee ketchup gives 'em flavor
Coffee pickles way outsell the dill
Why, they put coffee in the coffee in Brazil

No tea, no tomato juice
You'll see no potato juice
The planters down in Santos all say No, no, no <

So you'll add to the local color
Serving coffee with a cruller
Dunkin' doesn't take a lot of skill
They've got an awful lot of coffee
An awful lot of coffee
Man, they got a gang of coffee in Brazil!!

THE CONTINENTAL

Beautiful music
Dangerous rhythm

It's something daring, the Continental
A way of dancing that's really ultra new
It's very subtle, the Continental
Because it does what you want it to do

It has a passion, the Continental
An invitation to moonlight and romance
It's quite the fashion, the Continental
Because you tell of your love while you dance

You kiss while you're dancing
It's continental, ooh, it's continental
You sing while you're dancing
Your voice is gentle and so sentimental

You'll know before the dance is through
That you're in love with her and she's in love with you
You'll find while you're dancin'
That there's a rhythm in your heart and soul
A certain rhythm that you can't control
And you will do the Continental all the time

[brief instrumental]

You'll find while you're dancin'
That there's a rhythm in your heart and soul
A certain rhythm that you can't control
And you will do the Continental all the time

Beautiful music
Dangerous rhythm

The Continental!

FRANK SINATRA
THE CURSE OF AN ACHING HEART

You made me what I am today, I hope you're satisfied,
You dragged and dragged me down until the soul within me died.
You've shattered each and every dream, fooled me right from the start.
And though you're not true, may God bless you,
That's the curse of an aching heart.
(musical interlude)
You made me what I am today, I should hope you're satisfied,
You dragged, you dragged me down until the soul within me died.
You've shattered each and every dream, you fooled me right from the start.
And although you're not true, may God bless you,
That's the curse of an aching heart.

THE FUTURE

(feat. Beverly Jenkins)

[Alto solo by Beverly Jenkins] (chorus)

[Gonna find me a gypsy and get my fortune told,]
[I'm gonna find me a gypsy and get my fortune told.]
[I'm gonna say please, missus gypsy, tell me what the future will hold.]
(Hurry your deck of cards and your crystal ball)
(For there you will see that you will pray for light)
(The future will almost certainly be whatever you want it to be,)
(But with rockets and picks, from music and jetsam)
(There's no butt that you can push, and push,)
(Let your imagination burst into flame)
(And it will let you do whatever you damn well to do, do,do).

Given a choice I would choose to have a magic wand that I could use,
To draw a melody, from that enchanted blade of grass
And cheese and wood and wind and sea.
I would stand there, dig a grave, and quietly say,
Ladies and Gentlemen, play for me, play for me.
(and the orchestra plays a beautiful melody)

FRANK SINATRA
THE FUTURE (CONCLUSION) SONG WITHOUT WORDS

(feat. Loulie Jean Norman, Beverly Jenkins)

[Alto solo by Beverly Jenkins] (chorus)

(Your imagination has an awful lot to give)
(If our right to live were yours hauntingly)


(full musical interlude with chorus)

(brief transition)
If a man has a story that he badly needs to tell,
A man's imagination makes a lovely wishing well,
(make a wish, make a wish)
I wish I could write a song everyone alive could understand,
(A song that a Frenchman could sing to a Spaniard)
(A song that a German could sing to a Russian)
(A song that if ever you'd sing, you are king)
(Wouldn't it be wonderful, won't it be grand)
To write a song that the whole wide world could understand.
(lala , lalala, lala, lala, lalala, lala)
(lalalala, lalalala, lala, lalala, lalala)
lalala, lalalala, lala, lalala, lalalala, lala)
lalala, lalalala, lala, lalala. lalala)
(music and repeat)
[Gonna find me a gypsy and get my fortune told,]
[I'm gonna say, please missus gypsy, tell me what the future will hold]
(Tell us what the future will hold.)

FRANK SINATRA
THE FUTURE (CONTINUED) I'VE BEEN THERE!

Frank with (chorus)

(If the future proves sweet, would it tell us to leap before we move,)
(Would it care for us to live with danger or face the final foe,)
(If tomorrow brings us love, you can bet,)
(We will need all the help we can get.)
(And to tell me how this moves everyone of us to you.)
(How you're glad its winter, how you're glad to say it's true.)

When I see a young couple walking slowly through the trees,
I don't have to follow them to know how far they'll go,
I've been there.
If the boy is sulking and the girl is close to tears,
I know it doesn't matter, who is right or who started the fight,
I've been there.
I've been there when the music played old songs,
Young songs, good songs, bad songs, sweet songs, sad songs.
I've been there when a pretty smile made it difficult to breathe,
But so easy to fly and a pleasure to cry,
So to all of you in the throes of early love,
Where delightful confusion reigns supreme,
Let me try to help you rearrange your dream,
Let yourself live, let yourself love, let yourself go.
I've been there, and I know.

FRANK SINATRA
THE GAL THAT GOT AWAY

The night is bitter, the stars have lost their glitter
The winds grow colder, suddenly you're a lot older
And all because of a gal who got away
No more her eager call, the writing is on the wall
All those dreams you dreamed, they have all gone astray

The gal who won you, she's run off and undone you
That great beginning has seen the final inning
I don't know what happened, its all a crazy game
No more no more that all time thrill because you have been put though the mill
And never a new love will ever be the same

Good riddance, good bye
Every trick of hers you are on to
But fools will be fools and where's she gone?
Where has she gone?

The road gets rougher, it's lonelier and it's tougher
With hope ya burn up, tomorrow maybe she'll turn up
There ain't no let up, live long night, night and day

Ever since, since this world began
There ain't nothin' sadder than
A long lost loser
Lookin' for his gal who got away

Please come back
Won't ya come back?

Mm, mm, mm
Mm mmmm

FRANK SINATRA
THE GAME IS OVER

Time, there was a time you could talk to me without speaking,
You would look at me, and I'd know all there is to know.
Days I think of you, and remember the lies we told in the night,
The love we knew, the things we shared, when our hearts were fitting together.
Days that were so few, full of love and you.
Gone,. the days are gone now, days that seem so wrong now.
Life won't be the same without you, to hold again in my arms,
To ease the pain and remember when our love was the reason for living.
(instrumental)
Days that were so few, full of love and you.
The game is over.

THE GIRL FROM IPANEMA

Tall and tan and young and lovely, the girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes, each one she passes goes ah
When she walks, she's like a samba that swings so cool and sways so gentle
That when she passes, each one she passes goes ooh
(Ooh) But I watch her so sadly, how can I tell her I love her
Yes I would give my heart gladly,
But each day, when she walks to the sea
She looks straight ahead, not at me
Tall, (and) tan, (and) young, (and) lovely, the girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes, I smile but she doesn't see (doesn't see)
(She just doesn't see, she never sees me,...)

FRANK SINATRA
THE GIRL NEXT DOOR

The moment I saw her face, I knew she was just my style.
My only regret is we've never met for I dream of her all the while,
But she doesn't know I exist, no matter how I persist.
So it's clear to see there's no hope for me,
Though I live at fifty one thirty five Kensngton Avenue,
And she lives at fifty one thirty three.

How can I ignore the girl next door, I love her more than I can say.
Doesn't try to please me, doesn't even tease me,
And she never sees me glance her way.
And I thought I'm heartsore, the girl next door
Affection for me won't display.
I just adore her so I can't ignore her, the girl next door.

THE GIRLS I NEVER KISSED

The old wolf sniffs the summer breeze, and dreams about his youth,
For the sight of skirts above the knees turns his hardboiled brain to tears.
And the scent of honey in the tree whets an old sweet tooth.
The pretty girls go strolling by, I smile at them, and heave a sigh.
And think of all the things I've missed, and all the pretty girls I've never kissed.
They smile from field of daffodils, they wave from high and windy hills,
In secret places by the sea, the girls I've never kissed still wait for me.
All the girls whose names I can't recall, their faces haunt me still,
All the pretty girls I've never kissed and never will.
The girls of spring, the girls of fall, the girls of summer most of all,
If only time did not exist, if only I could catch that boat I always missed,
I'd go back and kiss all the pretty girls I've never kissed.

FRANK SINATRA
THE GOOD LIFE

It's the good life, full of fun, seems to be the ideal,
Yes, the good life, lest you hide all the sadness you feel,
You won't really fall in love 'cause you can't take the chance,
So be honest with yourself, don't try to fake romance.
Yes, the good life, to be free and explore the unknown,
Like the heartache when you learn you must face them alone,
Please remember I still want you and in case you wonder why,
Well, just wake up, kiss that good life goodbye.

[musical interlude]

Please remember I still want you and in case you wonder why,
Well, just wake up, kiss that good life goodbye.

FRANK SINATRA
THE GYPSY

In a quaint caravan there's a lady they call The Gypsy,
She can look at the future and drive away all your fears,
Everything will come out right if you only believe The Gypsy,
She can tell at a glance that my heart was full of tears.
She looked at my hand and told me my lover was always true,
But deep in my heart I knew dear, somebody else was kissing you.
I will go there again 'cause I want to believe The Gypsy,
That my lover is true and she'll come back to me someday.

FRANK SINATRA
THE HOUSE I LIVE IN

[Intro:]
What is America to me?
A name, a map, or a flag I see?
A certain word, democracy ?
What is America to me?

The house I live in, a plot of earth, a street
The grocer and the butcher, and the people that I meet
The children in the playground, the faces that I see
All races and religions, that's America to me

The place I work in, the worker by my side
The little town or city where my people lived and died
The howdy and the handshake, the air of feeling free
And the right to speak my mind out, that's America to me

The things I see about me, the big things and the small
The little corner newsstand and the house a mile tall
The wedding in the churchyard, the laughter and the tears
The dream that's been a growin' for a hundred and fifty years

The town I live in, the street, the house, the room
The pavement of the city, or a garden all in bloom
The church, the school, the clubhouse, the millions lights I see
But especially the people
That's America to me

FRANK SINATRA
THE HURT DOESN'T GO AWAY

The hurt doesn't go away, the tears never cease to fall,
You cover them over with people and places,
Hoping you'll want to break away.
Oh my darling, the pain doesn't go away,
When love doesn't want to stay.
And inside your laughter, the world's laughing too,
Saying you'll never make one more day.
All the nonsense of it and oh, the pain doesn't go away.
The tears never cease to fall, the hurt doesn't go away.
The pain doesn't go away.

FRANK SINATRA
THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go

To right the unrightable wrong
(1)To be better far than you are(1)
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star

This is my quest, to follow that star
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far
(2)To be willing to give when there's no more to give (2)
(3)To be willing to die so that honor and justice may live (3)
And I know if I'll only be true to this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm when I'm laid to my rest

And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars,
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star

[Notes:]
The Broadway cast's version is quite similar with a few exceptions:
(1)To love pure and chaste from afar
(2)To fight for the right without question or pause
(3)To be willing to march into hell for a heavenly cause

FRANK SINATRA
THE LAST DANCE

It's the last dance, we've come to the last dance
They're dimming the lights down, they're hoping we'll go
It's obvious they're aware of us, the pair of us, alone on the floor
Still I want to hold you like this forever and more

It the last song, they're playing the last song
The orchestra's yawning, they're sleepy I know
They're wondering just when will we leave, but till we leave, keep holding me tight
Through the last dance, each beat of the last dance
Save me the first dance in your dreams tonight


[instrumental strings and clarinet]

They're wondering just when will we leave, but till we leave, keep holding me tight
Through the last dance, each beat of the last dance
And save me the first dance in your dreams tonight

FRANK SINATRA
THE LITTLE DRUMMER BOY

Come they told me (pa rum pum pum pum)
A newborn King to see (pa rum pum pum pum)
Our finest gifts we bring pa rum pum pum pum
To lay before the King
So to honor Him (pa rum pum pum pum)
when we come

Little Baby (pa rum pum pum pum)
I am a poor boy too (pa rum pum pum pum)
I have no gift to bring (pa rum pum pum pum)
that's fit to give our King
Shall I play for You? (pa rum pum pum pum)
On my drum

Mary nodded (pa rum pum pum pum)
The ox and lamb kept time (pa rum pum pum pum)
I played my drum for Him (pa rum pum pum pum)
I played my best for Him
Then He smiled at me (pa rum pum pum pum)
Me and my drum

FRANK SINATRA
THE LOOK OF LOVE

I've seen the look of a baby with a rattle
I've seen the look of a hero in a battle
I've seen the look of a heartsick turtle dove
But the look that leaves ya real shook is the look of love

I've seen the look of a jockey on a winner
I've seen the look of a fat man havin' dinner
I've seen the look of those spacemen up above
But the look that closes the book is the look of love

It's thunder, it's lightning, the gentlest breeze
It's friendly, it's frightening
And more surprising than an elephant's sneeze

I've seen the look every single blushing bride has
I've seen the look that the fellow by her side has
But there's one look that I'd give my life to see
We are locked in a wondrous embrace
And there on that fabulous face
Is that fabulous look of love for me

[instrumental first two lines of last verse]

But there's one look that I'd give my life to see
We are locked in a wondrous embrace
And there on that fabulous face
Is that fabulous look of love for me

That's what I wanna see
That look of love for me

FRANK SINATRA
THE MAN IN THE LOOKING GLASS

[Intro:]
I've seen that face before, that face that I see in the mirror
I know that face, I've seen that face before
I knew that dopey guy when he didn't know how to tie his tie
He stood right there and he had hair galore

The man in the looking glass, who can he be?
The man in the looking glass, can he possibly be me?
Where's our young Romeo, the lad who used to sigh?
Who's the middle aged lothario with a twinkle in his eye?
He seem so much wiser now, less lonely but then
Could be he's only pretending again
Man in the looking glass, smiling away, how's your sacroiliac today?

Where's your first love affair, that tragedy d'amour?
The true love you thought would be the end of you for sure
Man in the looking glass, have no regrets
The man who's wise never forgets
That life is worth living if once in a while
You can look in that looking glass and smile

FRANK SINATRA
THE MOON GOT IN MY EYES

Out of the darkness you suddenly appeared
You smiled and I was taken by surprise
I guess I should have seen right through you
But the moon got in my eyes.
I was so thrilled by the love you volunteered,
I gave my heart without a compromise
I guess you don't remember, do you?
When the moon got in my eyes
I thought a kingdom was in sight
That I would have the right to claim
But with the morning's early light
I didn't have a dream to my name
You know the saying that all who love are blind;
It seems that ancient adage still applies.
I guess I should have seen right through you,
But the moon got in my eyes

FRANK SINATRA
THE MOON WAS YELLOW (AND THE NIGHT WAS YOUNG)

The moon was yellow, and the night was young.
A smile brought us together, and I was wond'ring whether
We'd meet again someday.
The moon was yellow, and a song was sung.
That vocal inspiration gave me the inclination
To give my heart away.
Here we are! Is our romance to continue?
Will it be my luck to win you.
May I look that far? Ah! My love is
Ah, my love is yellow and the night is young.

FRANK SINATRA
THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL IN THE WORLD

The most beautiful girl in the world picks my ties out
She eats my candy, she drinks my brandy
The most beautiful girl in the world
The most beautiful star in the world, 'tisn't Garbo
T'sn't Dietrich, but a sweet trick
Who can make me believe it's a beautiful world
Social ? Not a bit! Natural kind of wit
She'd shine anywhere, and she hasn't got platinum hair
The most beautiful house in the world has a mortgage
What do I care ? It's Good bye, care
When my slippers are next to the ones that belong
To the one and only beautiful girl in the world

[lengthy instrumental break]

Social ? Not a bit! She's got a natural kind of wit.
And I tell ya, she'd shine anywhere, and she hasn't got platinum hair
The most beautiful house in the world, it has a mortgage
What do I care ? It's Good bye, care
When my slippers are next to the ones that belong
To the one and only beautiful girl
The one and only beautiful girl
The one and only beautiful girl in the world

THE OLDEST ESTABLISHED (PERMANENT FLOATING CRAP GAME IN NEW YORK)

Nathan, you must concentrate on the game. The town is up to here with high players. The Greek's in
town. Freddie Bottle Bates, Scranton Slim.
Nathan: I know, I know, I could make a fortune, but to make a fortune, I need a fortune. A thousand
bucks, where do I get it?

The Biltmore Garage wants a grand, but we ain't got a grand on hand.
And they now got a lock on the door to the gym at Public School 84.
There's a stock room behind McKlosky's Bar, but Mrs. McKlosky ain't a good scout.
And things being how they are, the back of the police station is out!
So the Biltmore Garage is the spot, but the one thousand bucks we ain't got.

Why, it's good old reliable Nathan, Nathan, Nathan, Nathan Detroit,
If you're looking for action, he'll turn it to spot,
Even when the heat is on, it's never too hot.
But for the good old reliable Nathan, oh it's only just a short walk,
To the oldest established permanent floating crap game in New Yawk.
There are well heeled shooters everywhere, everywhere,
There are well heeled shooters everywhere,
And awful lot of lettuce for the fella who can get us to play.
If we only had a lousy little crap, we could be a millionaire.
Oh the good old reliable Nathan, Nathan, Nathan, Nathan Detroit,
If the size of your bundle you want to increase,
I'll arrange that you go broke in quiet and peace,
In a hideout provided by Nathan, where there are no neighbors to squawk,
It's the oldest established permanent floating crap game in New Yawk.
Where's the action? Where's the game?
Gotta have the game or we'll die from shame.
It's the oldest established permanent floating crap game in New York.

FRANK SINATRA
THE ONE I LOVE BELONGS TO SOMEBODY ELSE

The one I love belongs to somebody else
She means her tender songs for somebody else
And even when I have my arms around her
I know her thoughts are strong for somebody else
The hands I held belong to somebody else
I'll bet they're not so cold to somebody else
It's tough to be alone on the shelf
It's worse to fall in love by yourself
The one I love belongs to somebody else
The one I love belongs to somebody else

FRANK SINATRA
THE ONLY COUPLE ON THE FLOOR

The band played songs from years ago,
There wasn't one we didn't know,
The singer's voice was soft and low,
The lights came on, we didn't know


I held your body close to mine,
Your eyes were closed and so were mine.
I fell in love with you once more,
Just like a million times before.


Then I awoke, I was alone, my dreams like you have come and gone.
Tonight I'll hold you one more time, and dream your eyes are closed like mine.

FRANK SINATRA
THE SADDEST THING OF ALL

Through a blurry window out above the rooftop,
I keep looking at the rain swept sky
In this small apartment where she used to love me,
I just sit here as my life goes by.
There's no doorbell ringing, no sweet sounds of singing,
Just a silent room where tears won't dry.
Life is sad when people hurt you, sad when friends desert you,
Sad when dreams get lost beyond recall,
But remembering that love stopped blossoming,
And that's the saddest thing of all.
Once we had it made, our days one grand parade
Of thrills and laughter, only lovers know,
She was proud of me and we were young and free
One touch was all it took, and off we go,
Now above the rain, I hear a passing plane,
And all my loneliness begins to show.
Life is sad when people hurt you, sad when friends desert you,
Sad when dreams get lost beyond recall,
But remembering from spring to lonely spring,
Well, that's the saddest thing of all.

FRANK SINATRA
THE SECOND TIME AROUND

Love is lovelier the second time around
Just as wonderful with both feet on the ground
It's that second time you hear your love song sung
Makes you think perhaps that love, like youth, is wasted on the young

Love's more comfortable the second time you fall
Like a friendly home the second time you call
Who can say what brought us to this miracle we've found?
There are those who'll bet love comes but once, and yet
I'm oh, so glad we met the second time around

[instrumental strings]

Who can say what brought us to this miracle we've found?
There are those who'll bet love comes but once, and yet
I'm oh, so glad we met the second time around

THE SEPTEMBER OF MY YEARS

One day you turn around and it's summer
Next day you turn around and it's fall
And the springs and the winters of a lifetime
Whatever happened to them all?

As a man who has always had the wand'ring ways
Now I'm reaching back for yesterdays
'Til a long forgotten love appears
And I find that I'm sighing softly as I near
September, the warm September of my years

As I man who has never paused at wishing wells
Now I'm watching children's carousels
And their laughter's music to my ears
And I find that I'm smiling gently as I near
September, the warm September of my years

The golden warm September of my years

FRANK SINATRA
THE SINGLE MAN

I live alone, that hasn't always been easy to do for just a single man
Sometimes it's nice the walls talk back to me,
They seem to say, wasn't yesterday a better day?
Always alone, at home or in a crowd,
A single man off on his private cloud,
'Cause in a world that few men understand,
I am what I am, the single man.
Once was a time, I can't remember when,
The house was filled with love, but then again,
It might have been imagination's plan
To help along a single man.

FRANK SINATRA
THE SONG IS ENDED

My thoughts go back to a heavenly dance
A moment of bliss we spent
Our hearts were filled with a song of romance
As into the night we went
And sang to our hearts' content

The song is ended
But the melody lingers on
You and the song are gone
But the melody lingers on

The night was splendid
And the melody seemed to say
Summer will pass away
Take your happiness while you may

There 'neath the light of the moon
We sang a love song that ended too soon

The moon descended
And I found with the break of dawn
You and the song had gone
But the melody lingers on

FRANK SINATRA
THE SONG IS YOU

I hear music when I look at you
A beautiful theme of every dream I ever knew
Down deep in my heart I hear it play
I can feel it start, then it melts away

I hear music when I touch your hand
A beautiful melody from some enchanted land
Down deep in my heart, I hear it say
Is this the day?

I alone have heard this lovely strain
I alone have heard this glad refrain
Must it be forever inside of me?
Why can't I let it go? Why can't I let you know?

Why can't I let you know the song my heart would sing?
Beautiful rhapsody of love and youth and spring
The music is sweet, and the words are true
The song is you

[instrumental]

Why can't I let you know the song my heart would sing?
That beautiful rhapsody of love and youth and spring
The music is sweet, and the words are true
The song is you

FRANK SINATRA
THE SONG OF THE SABIA

I'll go back, I know now that I'll go back, that my place is there,
And there it will always be, there where I can hear the Song of the Sabia.
I'll go back, I know now that I'll go back, I will lie in the shadow of
A palm that's no longer there, and pick a flower that doesn't grow.
And maybe someone's love will speak the night.
The lonely unwanted light that may bring me through the new day.
I'll go back, I know now that I'll go back, they won't be in vain,
All the plans I made to deceive myself, all the rose I made just to lose myself,
All the love I made to forget myself, those mistakes I made just to find myself.
I'll go back, I know now that I'll go back, that my place is there,
And there it will always be, there where I can hear the Song of the Sabia.
Of the Sabia.

FRANK SINATRA
THE SUMMER KNOWS

The summer smiles, the summer knows, and unashamed, she sheds her clothes.
The summer smoothes the restless sky,
And lovingly she warms the sand on which you lie.
The summer knows, the summer's wise, she sees the doubts within your eyes,
And so she takes her summertime, tells the moon to wait and the sun to linger,
Twist the world around her summer finger.
Lets you see the wonder of it all,
And if you learned your lesson well,
There's little more for her to tell,
One last caress, it's time to dress for fall.

FRANK SINATRA
THE TRAIN

And now the sun has broken through, it looks like it will stay
Just can't have you comin' home on such a rainy day
The train is leaving Ellensville, unless my watch is fast
The kids are comin' home from school, must be quarter past
So many changes since you've been away, and there's so many things to say
This time around you'll want to stay, 'cuz I've had so many nights to find the way
Even bought that summer cottage yesterday, pretty soon I'll be close to you
And it will be so good, we'll talk about the part of you I never understood,
And I will take good care of you, and never let you cry
We will look so much in love to people passing by
So many changes since you've been away, and there's so many things to say
I wrote so many times and more, but the letters still are lying in my drawer
'Cuz the morning mail had left some time before
All the passengers for Allentown wait closer to the track
It's hard for me to realize you're really coming back
The crossing gate is coming down I think I see the train
The sun has gone and now my face is wet with heavy rain
The passengers for Allentown are gone, the train is slowly moving on
But I can't see you any place, and I know for sure I'd recognize your face
And I know for sure I'd recognize your face.

FRANK SINATRA
THE TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS

[Traditional version]
On the (first) day of Christmas my true love sent to me
Twelve lords leaping, Eleven ladies dancing, Ten pipers piping
Nine drummers drumming, Eight maids milking, Seven swans swimming
Six geese laying, Five gold rings
Four calling birds, Three french hens, Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree


[Frank's version]
On the (first) day of Christmas, we gave our loving dad (my children gave to me)
Twelve dozen kisses, Eleven jars of jelly, Ten silken hankies,
Nine games of scrabble, Eight pairs of cufflinks, Seven books of fiction,
Six golden lighters, Five ivory combs,
Four mission lights, Three golf clubs, Two silken scarfs,
And a most lovely lavender tie.

FRANK SINATRA
THE VERY THOUGHT OF YOU

The very thought of you and I forget to do
The ordinary things that everyone ought to do.
I'm living in a kind of daydream, I'm happy as a king,
Foolish though it may seem, to me that's everything.
The mere idea of you, the longing here for you,
You'll never know how slow the moments go till I'm near to you.
I see you face in every flower, your eyes in stars above,
It's just the thought of you, the very thought of you, my love.

FRANK SINATRA
THE WORLD WE KNEW (OVER AND OVER)

Over and over I keep going over the world we knew
Once when you walked beside me
That inconceivable, that unbelievable world we knew
When we two were in love

And every bright neon sign turned into stars
And the sun and the moon seemed to be ours
Each road that we took turned into gold
But the dream was too much for you to hold

Now over and over I keep going over the world we knew
Days when you used to love me

[instrumental last two lines of first verse]

And every bright neon sign turned into stars
And the sun and the moon seemed to be ours
Each road that we took, it turned into gold
But the dream was too much for you to hold

Now over and over I keep going over the world we knew
Days when you used to love me

Over and over I keep going over the world we knew

THEME FROM NEW YORK, NEW YORK

Start spreadin' the news, I'm leavin' today
I want to be a part of it
New York, New York
These vagabond shoes, are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it
New York, New York

I want to wake up, in a city that never sleeps
And find I'm king of the hill
Top of the heap

These little town blues, are melting away
I'll make a brand new start of it
In old New York
If I can make it there, I'll make it anywhere
It's up to you, New York..New York

New York...New York
I want to wake up, in a city that never sleeps
And find I'm A number one, top of the list
King of the hill, A number one....

These little town blues, are melting away
I'll make a brand new start of it
In old New York
If I can make it there, I'll make it anywhere
It's up to you, New York..New York New York!!!

FRANK SINATRA
THEN SUDDENLY LOVE

I never caught stardust that fell from the skies.
I never saw moonlight in anyone's eyes,
Then suddenly love kicks in the window,
Love knocks down the door.
Love, it sat down and told me,
Lover, what are you waiting for?
I never heard bluebirds, the songs that they sing,
I never get crazy, not even in spring,
Then suddenly love struck me like lightning,
Love it blew up a storm,
Love suddenly grabbed me, and ooh, was it cozy and warm
'Cause I found you, now I no longer just exist,
Ooh, what a change, it started from the time we kissed,
(And now we hear bluebirds), they hear bluebirds,
(We're learning that tune) they like that tune,
(And even yon moonlight) all that pretty moonlight

(Comes down about you) Hotdog, them love, it's still on a heaven,
Love, it gave me a shove,
[Ding dong Ding], I'm a hearing those [church bells ring]
'Cause suddenly [love, love, love, love, love. love, love]

FRANK SINATRA
THERE ARE SUCH THINGS

A heart that's true, there are such things
A dream for two, there are such things
Someone to whisper Darling you're my guiding star
Not caring what you own but just what you are

A peaceful sky, there are such things
A rainbow high where heaven sings
So have a little faith and trust in what tomorrow brings
You'll reach a star because there are such things

[musical interlude]

So have a little faith and trust in what tomorrow brings
You'lll reach a star because there are such things

THERE USED TO BE A BALLPARK

And there used to be a ballpark where the field was warm and green
And the people played their crazy game with a joy I'd never seen
And the air was such a wonder from the hot dogs and the beer
Yes, there used a ballpark right here

And there used to be rock candy and a great big Fourth of July
With the fireworks exploding all across the summer sky
And the people watched in wonder, how they'd laugh and how they'd cheer
And there used to be a ballpark right here

Now the children try to find it
And they can't believe their eyes
cause the old team just isn't playing
And the new team hardly tries

And the sky has got so cloudy
When it used to be so clear
And the summer went so quickly this year

Yes, there used to be a ballpark right here

FRANK SINATRA
THEY ALL LAUGHED

The odds were a hundred to one against me
The world thought the heights were too high to climb
But people from Missouri never incensed me
Oh, I wasn't a bit concerned
For from hist'ry I had learned
How many, many times the worm had turned
They all laughed at Christopher Columbus when he said the world was round
They all laughed when Edison recorded sound
They all laughed at Wilbur and his brother when they said that man could fly
They told Marconi wireless was a phony, it's the same old cry
They laughed at me wanting you, said I was reaching for the moon
But oh, you came through, now they'll have to change their tune
They all said we never could be happy, they laughed at us and how!
But ho, ho, ho! Who's got the last laugh now?
They all laughed at Rockefeller Center, now they're fighting to get in
They all laughed at Whitney and his cotton gin
They all laughed Fulton and his steamboat, Hershey and his chocolate bar
Ford and his Lizzie, kept the laughers busy, that's how people are
They laughed at me wanting you, said it would be, Hello, Goodbye.
But oh, you came through, now they're eating humble pie
They all said we'd never get together, darling, let's take a bow
For ho, ho, ho! Who's got the last laugh?
Hee, hee, hee! Let's at the past laugh, Ha, ha, ha! Who's got the last laugh now?

FRANK SINATRA
THEY CAN'T TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME

There are many, many crazy things
That will keep me loving you,
And with your permission
May I list a few?

The way you wear your hat.
The way you sip your tea.
The memory of all that
No, no they can't take that away from me.

The way your smile just beams.
The way you sing off key.
The way you haunt my dreams.
No, no they can't take that away from me.

We may never, never meet again
On that bumpy road to love
Still I'll always,
Always keep the memory of:

The way you hold your knife (do do do do do do).
The way we danced until three.
The way you've changed my life.
No, no they can't take that away from me.
No, they can't take that away from me.

FRANK SINATRA
THIS HAPPY MADNESS (ESTRADA BRANCA)

What should I call this happy madness that I feel inside of me
Sometime of wild October gladness that I never thought I'd see
What has become of all my sadness all my endless lonely sighs
Where are my sorrows now
What happened to the frown and is that self contented clown
Standing grinning in the mirror really me
I'd like to run through Central Park carve your initials in the bark
Of every tree I pass for every one to see
I feel that I've gone back to childhood and I'm skipping through the wildwood
So excited that I don't know what to do
What do I care if I'm a juvenile I smile my secret little smile
Because I know the change in me is you
What should I call this happy madness all this unexpected joy
That turned the world into a baby's bouncing toy
The god's are laughing far above one of them gave a little shove
And I fell gaily gladly madly into love

FRANK SINATRA
THIS IS ALL I ASK

As I approach the prime of my life, I find I have the time of my life
Learning to enjoy at my leisure all the simple pleasures
And so I happily concede
That this is all I ask, this is all I need

Beautiful girls, walk a little slower when you walk by me
Lingering sunsets, stay a little longer with the lonely sea
Children everywhere, when you shoot at bad men, shoot at me
Take me to that strange, enchanted land grown ups seldom understand

Wandering rainbows, leave a bit of color for my heart to own
Stars in the sky, make my wish come true before the night has flown
And let the music play as long as there's a song to sing
Then I will stay younger than Spring

FRANK SINATRA
THIS IS MY LOVE

Soft as a raindrop
Fresh as the sea
Warm as the sunshine
Shining on me
This is my love
This is my love
Light was her laughter
Few were her tears
Gentle her beauty
Tender her years
This is my love
This is my love
So young
So fair
Such bright golden hair
A smile always on her face
No other love
Can ever compare
No other can take her place
Others may cherish
Fortune or fame
I will forever
Cherish her name
For this is my love
This is my love

FRANK SINATRA
THIS IS MY SONG

Love, this is my song, this is my song, my serenade to you
The world cannot be wrong, if in this world there is you
I care not what the world may say, without your love there is no day
So love, this is my song, this is my song, my serenade to you
I care not what the world may say, without your love there is no day
So love, this is my song, this is my song, my serenade to you

FRANK SINATRA
THIS NEARLY WAS MINE

One dream in my heart, one love to be living for,
One love to be living for, this nearly was mine.
One girl for my dream, one partner in paradise,
This promise of paradise, this nearly was mine.
Close to my heart she came, only to fly away,
Only to fly as day flies from moonlight.
Now, now I'm alone, still dreaming of paradise,
Still saying that paradise once nearly was mine.

THIS TOWN

This town is a lonely town
Not the only town like a this town
This town is a make you town
Or a break you town and bring you down town

This town is a quiet town
Or a riot town like this town
This town is a love you town
And a shove you down and push you 'round town

[instrumental]

This town is an all right town
For an uptight town like a this town
This town, it's a use you town
An abuse you town until you're down town

This town is a losin' town
It's a miserable town
It's a nowhere town
And I am leavin' this town
You better believe that I'm leavin' this town
Man, it could never be uptown
It's bound to be downtown

[Fade]

This town, bye bye
Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye bye

THREE COINS IN THE FOUNTAIN

Three coins in the fountain,
Each one seeking happiness.
Thrown by three hopeful lovers,
Which one will the fountain bless?

Three hearts in the fountain,
Each heart longing for its home.
There they lie in the fountain
Somewhere in the heart of Rome.

Which one will the fountain bless?
Which one will the fountain bless?

Three coins in the fountain,
Through the ripples how they shine.
Just one wish will be granted,
One heart will wear a valentine.

Make it mine!
Make it mine!
Make it mine!

[Musical interlude]

Three coins in the fountain,
Through the ripples how they shine.
And just one wish will be granted,
One heart will wear a valentine.

Make it mine!
Make it mine!
Make it mine!

TIE A YELLOW RIBBON AROUND THE OLE OAK TREE

I'm coming home I've done my time,
Now I've got to know what is and isn't mine,
If you receive my letter tellin' you I'd soon be free,
Then you'll know just what to do, if you still want me, if you still want me.
Tie a yellow ribbon round the ole oak tree,
It's been three long years, do ya still want me?
If I don't see a ribbon ,round the ole oak tree,
I'll stay on the bus, forget about us, put the blame on me
If I don't see a ribbon round the ole oak tree.
Bus driver, please look for me cause I couldn't bear to see what I might see,
I'm really still in prison, and my love, she holds the key,
Simple yellow ribbon's what I need to set me free.
I wrote and told her please tie a yellow ribbon round the ole oak tree,
It's been three long years, do ya still want me?
If I don't see a ribbon round the ole oak tree,
I'll stay on the bus, forget about us, put the blame on me,
If I don't see a ribbon round the ole oak tree.
Now the whole damn bus is cheering and I can't believe I see
A hundred yellow ribbons round the ole oak tree.

TINA

You simply can't forget her
The moment you have met her, your heart will never ever be the same
Tina, Tina, nobody else but Tina, that's the little lady's name

And once you've gone and kissed her
Give up, you can't resist her, your thoughts will wear her picture like a frame
Tina, Tina, nobody quite like Tina, that's the little lady's name

She'll merely smile, and in a twinkling
You'll swear that smile contains a star
Before that smile, you had no inkling
How much in love you really are

Let others look for angels
I have no time for angels, I've found someone more than just divine
Tina, Tina, no sir, you can't have Tina
Tina is mine, all mine
Tina is mine, all mine

TO LOVE A CHILD

(feat. Nikki Costa)

(chorus only) [Nikki Costa]

(Lala lalalala, lala lalalala, lala lalalala, lalala.)




As one human to another, I'd like to question you (what's the question?)
If it takes the sun and the rain to make a tree grow, (that's a hard one)
If it takes the moon and the tide to make the sea flow,
What does it take to love a child? (to love a child)
To love a child (to love a child)


To love a child (to love a child), hmm, hmm, hmm (hmm, hmm, hmm)
[Said the bigger to the smaller raccoon, do you need someone to move you,]
[Said the smaller to the bigger raccoon, if you move I will follow.]
(Up they went to climb a tree, they end the day most happily.)
(Anything that they can do, humans can do too.)
As one human to another, I'd like to question you.
If it takes the sun and the rain to make the tree grow, (to make the tree grow)
If it takes the moon and the tide to make the sea flow, (to make the sea flow)
What does it take to love a child? (to love a child)
To love a child (to love a child)


To love a child (to love a child), to love a child (hmm, hmm, hmm)
To love a child (lala, lalala, lala lalala, lala lalala, lala lalala, lala lalala)
(lala lalala, lala lalala, lala lalala, lala lalala, lala lalala, lala lalala,)
(lala lalala..)

TOGETHER

She: We strolled the lane together, last out the rain together
Sang love's refrain together, and we both pretend it would never end,
One day we cry together, that's why we sigh together,
You're gone from me but in my memory, we'll always be together.
He: We strolled the lane together, baby, we last out that rain together,
Sang love's refrain together, we knew long ago that our love would grow,
She: Through sun and storm together,
He: Our hearts as one together,
You're gone from me, but in my memory,
Both: We'll always be together.

FRANK SINATRA
TRISTE

Sad is to live in solitude far from your tranquil altitude
Sad is to know that no one ever can live on a dream
That never can be, will never be dreamer awake, wake up and see.
Your beauty is an aeroplane so high my heart can't bear the strain
A heart that stops when you pass by, only to cause me pain
Sad is to live in solitude

FRANK SINATRA
TWIN SOLILOQUIES (WONDER HOW IT FEELS)

Frank duets with the girl [Girl singer]

[Wonder how I feel living on a hill top,]
[Looking on an ocean, beautiful and still,]
This is what I need, this is what I've longed for,
Someone young and smiling, climbing up my hill.
[We are not alike, probably I'd bore him]
[He's a cautious Frenchman, I'm a little hick]
Younger men than I, officers and doctors,
Probably pursue her, she could have her pick.
[Wonder why I feel jittery and jumpy,]
[I'm like a schoolgirl waiting before a dance]
Can I ask her now, I am like a schoolboy,
What will be her answer, do I have a chance?

[music transition leading to the song Some Enchanted Evening]

UNTIL THE REAL THING COMES ALONG

Don't you know I'd work for you, I'd slave for you, be a beggar or a knave for you
If that isn't love it will have to do until the real thing comes along
Gladly move the earth for you, prove my love dear, and it's worth for you
If that isn't love it'll have to do, until the real thing comes along
With all the words dear at my command, I just can't make you understand
I'll always love you baby come what may, my heart is yours what more can I say
I would cry for you, even sigh for you, tear those stars down from the sky for you
If that isn't love it'll have to do, until the real thing comes along
Walk on burning coals for you, I would drive the Chrysler, leave the Rolls for you
If that ain't love it will have to do, until the real thing comes along
I would try to hit high C for you, I'd even punch out Mr. T for you
If that ain't love it will have to do, until the real thing comes along
There's not a thing that you can't ask of me, go on, demand any task of me
If you want the moon or a lavaliere, all you got to do is nibble on my ear
I would rob, steal, beg, borrow, and lie for you, lay my little body down and die for you
(If that ain't love if that isn't love), If that ain't love it will have to do
Until the real thing comes along

FRANK SINATRA
WALK AWAY

Walk away, please go before you throw your life away,
A life I could share for just a day.
We could have met some years ago. For your sake I'll say,
Walk away, just go, walk away and live a life that's full with no regret.
Don't look back to me, just try to forget.
Why build a dream that cannot come true, so be strong,
Reach the stars now, walk away, walk on.
If I heard your voice, I'll beg you to stay,
So don't say a word, just run away.
Goodbye, my love, my tears will fall now that you're gone,
I can't help but cry but I must go on.
I'm sad that after searching so long,
Knew I love you but told you, walk away, walk on.

FRANK SINATRA
WANDERING

Sometimes I think that I'm on the right track,
But I keep coming back to the same place,
The same place where I sought it.
Sometimes you'll think there's a smile on my face,
But it can't take the place of a free heart, a me heart that I've read of.
I can hear mem'ries singing through night and through day,
What good are mem'ries, they just seem to get in the way.
They get in the way.
When it's November, I'll think of July,
Where the sunshine will fly through a warm sky,
A warm sky where I'll wander.
When it's November, I'll think of July,
Where the sunshine will fly through a warm sky,
A warm sky where I'll wander.

FRANK SINATRA
WATCH WHAT HAPPENS

Let someone start believing in you, let him hold out his hand
Let him touch you and watch what happens
One someone who can look in your eyes, and see into your heart
Let him find you and watch what happens
Cold, no I won't believe your heart is cold
Maybe just afraid to be broken again
Let someone with a deep love to give
Give that deep love to you, and what magic you'll see
Let someone with a deep love to give
Give that deep love to you. and what magic you'll see
Let someone give his heart, someone who cares like me
Let someone give his heart who cares like me

WATERTOWN

Old Watertown, nothing much happenin', down on Main, 'cept a little rain
Old Watertown, everyone knows, the perfect crime, killin' time
And no one's goin' anywhere, livin's much too easy there
It can never be a lonely place when there's the shelter of familiar faces
Who can say it's not that way, Old Watertown, so much excitement
To be found hangin' round, there's someone standing in the rain
Waiting for the morning train, it's gonna be a lonely place
Without the look of familiar faces, but who can say it's not that way

FRANK SINATRA
WAVE

So close your eyes, for thats a lovely way to be
Aware of things your heart alone was meant to see
The fundamental loneliness goes whenever two can dream a dream together
You can't deny, don't try to fight the rising sea
Don't fight the moon, the stars above and don't fight me
The fundamental loneliness goes whenever two can dream a dream together
When I saw you first the time was half past three,
When your eyes met mine it was eternity
By now we know the wave is on its way to be
Just catch that wave don't be afraid of loving me
The fundamental loneliness goes whenever two can dream a dream together
When I saw you first the time was half past three
When your eyes met mine it was eternity
By now we know the wave is on its way to be
Just catch that wave, don't be afraid of loving me
The fundamental loneliness goes whenever two can dream a dream together

WE OPEN IN VENICE

A troupe of strolling players are we, not stars like L. B. Mayer's are we,
But just a simple band who roams about the land,
Dispensing plentyof frivolity.
Mere folks who give distraction are we, yes, and give attraction are we, oh shut up, man
But just a crazy group, that never seeks to sosoup,
Around a pack of little on a leash.
Well,. here we go, back to the home country again.
We open in Venice, we next play Verona, then on to Cremona,
Lots of laughs in Cremona, eh boys, our next jump in Parma, that dopy mopie menace,
And Mantua and Padua, and then we open again. where?
We open in Venice, we next play Verona, then on to Cremona,
Lots of bars in Cremona, our next jump is Parma, that tearless fearless menace,
And Mantua, and Padua, then we open again. Where?
We open in Venice, we next play Verona, then on to Cremona,
Lots of money in Cremona, our next jump in Parma, that's ingie pingie menace,
Then Mantua, then Padua, and then we open again, where?
We open in Venice, we next play Verona, then on to Cremona,
Lots of players in Cremona, our next jump in Parma, that heartless artless menace,
Then Mantua, then Padua, the we open again. Where?
Oh, let me see now, I got a map, let's pick out someplace.
Well just don't dicado back on the line now, oh let's take the first canyon out of here.
As a matter fact if we hurry we can beat the sack, for the chef's out there waiting for us.
Goodbye boys, gida, gida, gida.

WE'LL GATHER LILACS IN THE SPRING

We'll gather lilacs in the spring again,
And walk together down an endless lane,
Until our hearts have learned to sing again,
When you come home once more.
And in the evening by the firelight glow,
You'll hold me close and never let me go,
Your eyes will tell me all I want to know,
When you come home once more.

And in the evening by the firelight glow,
You'll hold me close and never let me go,

WE'LL MEET AGAIN

We'll meet again, don't know where, don't know when,
Bit I know we'll meet again some sunny day.
Keep smiling through just like you always do,
Till the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away.
So will you please say hello to the folks that I know, tell them I won't be long.
They'll be happy to know that as you saw me go, I was singing this song.
We'll meet again, don't know where, don't know when,
But I know we'll meet again some sunny day.

WHAT A FUNNY GIRL (YOU USED TO BE)

You always looked a little out of place, all grown up with freckles on your face
We'd spend each night with company, just you, the teddy bear, the dolls and me
What a funny girl you used to be, you always had a thousand things to do
Getting all involved with something new, always some new recipe the kitchen
Always looked like World War Three, what a funny girl you used to be
It was so good with you around, you always found a smile
Where smiles could not be found, I never ever met a person more sincere
You'd always listen with an open ear, you'd fall for lines so easily
Whatever they were selling you'd buy three
What a funny girl you used to be, what a funny girl you used to be...

FRANK SINATRA
WHAT NOW MY LOVE

What now my love, now that you've left me, how can I live through another day
Watching my dreams turn to ashes, and my hopes turn to bits of clay
Once I could see, once I could feel, now I am numb, I've become unreal
I walk the night, without a goal, stripped of my heart and my soul
What now my love, now that it's over, I feel the world falling all around me
Here come the stars, tumbling around me, there's the sky, where that sea should be
What now my love, now that you're gone, I'd be a fool to go on and on
No one would care, no one would cry, if I should live if I should live or die
What now my love, now there is nothing, only my last, my last good bye

FRANK SINATRA
WHAT'S NOW IS NOW

You should've told me when it all began
You should've told me long ago
Someday I know you're gonna find
Just one mistake is not enough to change my mind

What's now is now and I'll forget what happened then
I know it all and we can still begin again

And if the doubting faces made you go
It's only mine that matters now
Those looks will soon begin to fade
If you come back and show them all you're not afraid

What's now is now and I'll forget what happened then
I know it all and we can still begin again

Now that you know how much I understand
You have no reason to be gone
And if you feel at all like me
Just let me know, I'll make it like it used to be

What's now is now and I'll forget what happened then
I know it all and we can still begin again

What's now is now and I'll forget what happened then
I know it all

WHEN I LOST YOU

[musical intro]
I lost the sunshine and roses, I lost the heavens of blue,
I lost the beautiful rainbow, I lost the morning dew.
I lost the angel who gave me summer, the whole winter too.
I lost the gladness that turned into sadness,
When I lost you.

WHEN I TAKE MY SUGAR TO TEA

When I take my sugar to tea, all the boys are jealous of me,
'Cause I never take her where the gang goes,
When I take my sugar to tea.
I'm a rowdy dowdy, that's me, she's a high hat baby, that's she,
So I never take her where the gang goes,
When I take my sugar to tea.
Every Sunday afternoon, we forget about our cares,
Rubbing elbows at the Ritz, with those millionaires.
When I take my sugar to tea, I'm as ritzy as I can be,
'Cause I never take her where the gang goes,
When I take my sugar to tea.
(musical interlude)

Every Sunday afternoon, we forget about those cares,
Rubbing elbows at the Ritz, with those zillionaires.

WHEN I'M NOT NEAR THE GIRL I LOVE

Oh my heart is beating wildly and it's all because you're here.
When I'm not near the girl I love, I love the girl I'm near.
Every femme that flutters by me is a flame that must be fanned,
When I can't fondle the hand I'm fond of, I fondle the hand at hand
My heart's in a pickle, it's constantly fickle and not too partic'lar I fear,
When I'm not near the girl I love, I love the girl I'm near.
I'm confessing a confession and I hope I'm not verbose when I am not close
To the kiss I cling to, I cling to the kiss that's close.
As I'm more and more a mortal, I am more and more a case
When I'm not facing the face I fancy, I fancy the face I face.
For Sharon I'm caring but Susan I'm choosing, I'm faithful to those whos'n is here.
When I'm not near the girl I love, I love the girl I'm near.

FRANK SINATRA
WHEN SOMEBODY LOVES YOU

When somebody loves you, you feel it in your heart
When somebody loves you, you know it from the start
Every kiss becomes more than a kiss
Each look, each touch they mean so much
And that's when you discover how it feels to be a lover

When somebody loves you, it shows in every smile
When somebody loves you, your life becomes worthwhile
Always caring, always sharing everything you do
When somebody loves you like I love you

(When somebody loves you, it shows in every smile)
(When somebody loves you, your life becomes worthwhile)
Always caring, always sharing everything you do
When somebody loves you like I love you

WHEN THE WIND WAS GREEN

When the wind was green at the start of the spring
When the wind was green like a living thing
It was on my lips and its kiss was fair
You were there

When the wind was red like a summer wine
When the wind was red like your lips on mine
It caressed my face and it tossed my hair
You were there

Then came the fall and all of love came tumbling, stumbling down
Like leaves that lost to frost and found
They were flying, crying
In a brown wind dying

But the winter's come and we both should know
That the wind is white like the swirling snow
And we'll never see all the wonderful things to be seen
When the wind is green

WINCHESTER CATHEDRAL

Oooh, Winchester Cathedral, you're bringin' me down
You stood and you watched as my baby left town
You coulda done somethin', hey, you didn't try
You didn't do nothin', you just let her walk by

Now everyone knows just how much I needed that girl
She wouldn't have gone far away if only you'd started ringin' your bell

Winchester Cathedral, you're bringin' me down
You stood and you watched as my baby left town

Hey, Winchester Cathedral, you are bringin' me down
You stood and you watched as, you watched her go by, my baby left town
You coulda done somethin', but you didn't even try
You didn't do nothin', you didn't ding dong, you let her get by

Now, Winchester Cathedral, man, you've brought me down
You just stood there and watched as my baby left town!

WITCHCRAFT

Those fingers in my hair
That sly come hither stare
That strips my conscience bare
It's witchcraft

And I've got no defense for it
The heat is too intense for it
What good would common sense for it do?

'cause it's witchcraft, wicked witchcraft
And although I know it's strictly taboo
When you arouse the need in me
My heart says Yes, indeed in me
Proceed with what you're leadin' me to

It's such an ancient pitch
But one I wouldn't switch
'cause there's no nicer witch than you
[instrumental]


'cause it's witchcraft, that crazy witchcraft

WITHOUT A SONG

Without a song the day would never end
Without a song the road would never bend
When things go wrong a man ain't got a friend
Without a song

That field of corn would never see a plow
That field of corn would be deserted now
A man is born but he's no good no how
Without a song

I got my trouble and woe but, sure as I know, the Jordan will roll
And I'll get along as long as a song, strong in my soul

I'll never know what makes the rain to fall
I'll never know what makes that grass so tall
I only know there ain't no love at all
Without a song

WIVES AND LOVERS

Hey, little girl, comb your hair, fix your make up, soon he will open the door,
Don't think because there's a ring on your finger, you needn't try any more.
For wives should always be lovers too,
Run to his arms the moment that he comes home to you.
I'm warning you,
Day after day, there are girls at the office and the men will always be men,
Don't stand him up, with your hair still in curlers, you may not see him again.
Wives should always be lovers too,
Run to his arms the moment he comes home to you.
He's almost here, hey, little girl, better wear something pretty,
Something you wear to go to the city,
Dim all the lights, pour the wine, start the music, time to get ready for love.
Time to get ready for love, yes it's time to get ready for love,
It's time to get ready, kick your shoes off, baby....,

WORLD WAR NONE!

Where I live in the desert, it's so peaceful and warm.
And the cares of the world drift by, like clouds reflected in a quiet pool
But there always comes a time, when a man has to think of the future,
(War, war, war!) Has to think of his children, (war, war, war!)
And the world they will live in (war, war, war, war!),
I'm not sure if I can do anything to help them, but I can try, I can try.
Time to build us a fire, seven hundred feet high,
We can fashion a fire (fire) that will reach the sky (reach the sky)
We can feed the flames with the unkind deeds we've done (with the fire),
'Cause we've got to get ready, for World War None.
(What we want is to burn our sins in a sort of furnace,)
(We'll be stoking the fire with the lies we know)
All our false suspicions we can burn them one by one
That will help us get ready for World War None.
(A little love is more effective than a rifle,)
(A little faith will take you farther than it can)
(The rule we follow is the one forever spoken)
(They haven't got the truth on their lips).
Keep on feeding the fire, till the fire is hot,
With those un neighborly feelings we deny we've got.
Keep on trying for peace, until that peace is won.
Then you're practically ready for World War None.
(A whispered word or touch is louder than a bugle)
(A silent prayer is so much stronger than a sword,)
(And the bombs that can't replace the stained glass window)
For which we should thank the good Lord, thank the good Lord)
(Thank you, thank you, thank you)
If we cherish our fire (if we cherish our fire)
It could possibly be (it could possibly be),
Bright enough to be seen, (bright enough to be seen)
Far across the sea (far across the sea),
When those other countries (when those other countries)
what we have done (what we've done)
Maybe they'll help us get ready (get ready, get ready)

(World War None!)

YELLOW DAYS

I remember when the sunlight had a special kind of brightness
And laughter held a lover's kind of lightness, Yellow days, yellow days.
She would hold me and the smile would spread around us so completely
And the softness of a kiss would linger sweetly, Yellow days, yellow days.
But then came thunder and I heard her say goodbye
Through tears of wonder, Now I'm alone and my heart wants to know
Yellow days, where'd you go?
Life is empty and the sunlight seems so harsh instead of tender
And the laughter's just an echo I'll remember Yellow days, yellow days.
Now I'm alone and my heart wants to know
Yellow days, where'd you go?
Life is empty and the sunlight seems so harsh instead of tender
And the laughter's just an echo I'll remember Yellow days, yellow days

YES SIR, THAT'S MY BABY

[first words replaced by trumpet notes], ***, that's my baby
No sir, I don't mean maybe, yes sir, that's my baby now
Yes, ma'm, we've decided, no ma'm, we ain't gonna hide it, yes, ma'm, you're invited now
By the way, by the way, when we walk up to the preacher I'll say
Yes sir, that's my baby, no sir, I don't mean maybe
Yes sir, that's my baby now, [instrumental interlude]
By the way, by the way, when we run into the preacher I'll say
I'll say yes sir, that's my baby, no sir, I don't mean maybe
Yes sir, that's my baby now, Mmm

YESTERDAY

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
Now they look as though they're here to stay,
Oh I believe in yesterday, oh I believe in yesterday.

Suddenly I'm not half the man I used to be.
There's a shadow hanging over me, oh yesterday came suddenly.
Why she had to go I don't know, she wouldn't say.
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday.

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play,
Now I need a place to hide away, oh I believe in yesterday.
Why she had to go I don't know, she wouldn't say.
I said something wrong , now I long for yesterday.

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play,
Now I need a place to hide away, oh I believe in yesterday

FRANK SINATRA
YESTERDAYS

Yesterdays, Yesterdays, days I knew as happy sweet sequestered days
Olden days, golden days, days of mad romance and love
Then gay youth was mine, and truth was mine
Joyous free and flaming life forsooth was mine
Sad am I, glad am I, for today I'm dreaming of, of yesterdays
Then gay youth was mine, the truth was mine
Sad am I, glad am I, for today I'm dreaming of, of yesterdays

FRANK SINATRA
YOU AND ME (WE WANTED IT ALL)

[intro strings]

You and me, we wanted it all we wanted it all
Passion without pain, sunshine without rainy days
We wanted it always

You and me, we reached for the sky, the limit was high
Never giving in, certain we could win that prize
I should have seen it in your eyes

Look how all our dreams came true
See how I've got me and, baby, you've got you
Through it all, just one thing died
A little thing called love, something deep inside

You and me, we're not like the rest, we once were the best
Back when we were dumb, how did we become so smart
And learn to break each other's heart?

Look how all our dreams came true
See how I've got me, baby, you've got you
Through it all, just one thing died
A little thing called love, something deep inside

You and me, we're not like the rest, we once were the best
But look what we became, isn't it a cryin' shame
That we almost made it?

But we wanted it all
Baby, you and me
We wanted it all

Mm., mm , mm

FRANK SINATRA
YOU AND THE NIGHT AND THE MUSIC

You and the night and the music fill me with flaming desire,
Setting my being completely on fire!
You and the night and the music thrill me but will we be one
After the night and the music are done?
Until the pale light of dawning and daylight, our hearts will be throbbing guitars,
Morning may come without warning, and take away the stars.
If we must live for the moment, love till the moment is through!
After the night and the music die, will I have you?

FRANK SINATRA
YOU ARE THE SUNSHINE OF MY LIFE

You are the sunshine of my life, that's why I'll always be around
You are the apple of my eye, forever you'll stay (be) in my heart
I know that this is the beginning, Though I loved you for one million years
But if I thought our love was ending, I'd find myself drowning in my own tears
You are the sunshine of my life
That's why I'll always be around, you are the apple of my eye
Forever you'll stay (be) in my heart
You must have known that I was lonely, because you came to my rescue
And though I know that this is heaven, how could so much love be inside of you
You are the sunshine of my life, that's why I'll always be around
You are the apple of my eye, forever you'll stay (be) in my heart
('Cause you are) You are the sunshine of my life
(Of my life, of my life) (Light my fire baby, light my fire,...)

FRANK SINATRA
YOU ARE THERE

You are there, in autumn gold or summer green,
You are there, to lend enchantment to the scene.
I hear music, and all because you are there.
In a mist, behind a window in the dawn,
We have kissed, but when I reached for you, you'd gone...
You come and you go, like April snow,
Until I wonder, darling, are you real, or an illusion I embrace
Half a dream, the other half that laughing face
Although, in my heart, I know that you are there
You are there, You are there!

FRANK SINATRA
YOU BROUGHT A NEW KIND OF LOVE TO ME

If the nightingales could sing like you
They'd sing much sweeter than they do
For you brought a new kind of love to me

And if the sandman brought me dreams of you
I'd want to sleep my whole life through
You brought a new love to me

I know that I'm the slave, you're the queen
Still you can understand that underneath it all
You're a maid and I am only a man

I would work and slave the whole day through
If I could hurry home to you
You brought a new kind of love to me

FRANK SINATRA
YOU NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD

The life and land around you is good, so good, so good.
You never had it so good, you never had it so good,
You never had it so good, you never had it so good,
You never had it so good, sister,
Smiles of happy faces, different styles and races,
Still we're one big neighborhood.
You never, I mean never, ever had it so good, so good, so good, so good.
Ice cream on your apple pie, that's good, that's good.
Mountain streams of fish fry, yum yum, that's good.
Flag that you can wave about, that's good, that's good.
A wide spread you can see right outside good, that's good.
What our forefathers said still goes, any American knows,
You never had it so good, you never had it so good,
You never had it so good, you never had it so good,
You never had it so good, sister,
Smiles of happy faces, different styles and races,
Still we're one big neighborhood.
You never, I mean never, ever had it so good, so good, so good, so good.
The corn upon the splendid plain, that's good, that's good.
And frozen foods in cellophane, that's good, that's good,
A hot dog in a bleacher's seat, that's good, that's good,
A town hall where the people meet, that's good, that's good.
Old John Hancock, he said it fine, he put it right on the line,
You never had it so good, you never had it so good,
You never had it so good, you never had it so good,
You never had it so good, sister,
Smiles of happy faces, different styles and races,
Still we're one big neighborhood.
You never, I mean never, ever had it so good, so good, so good, so good.
Not ever!

FRANK SINATRA
YOU TURNED MY WORLD AROUND

Walkin' lonely streets, lookin' for a sign
Livin' lonely dreams, life with no design
Like lonely people do, livin' in the past
Only findin' love that didn't last
Then the shadows of my life felt the sun and saw your face
As your love fell all around me making perfect time and space

Then you turned my world around
When you held out your hand
You turned my world around
Bringin' love to a lonely man

Now I walk with you, Spring has come at last
No more lonely dreams, they're all in the past
And each day knows the joy that sharing love can give
Love's the only life that we can li ive
Now the shadows of my life feel the sun, I see your face
As your love falls all around me making perfect time and space

And you turned my world around
When you held out your hand
You turned my world around
Bringing love to a lonely man

FRANK SINATRA
YOU WILL BE MY MUSIC

When all the songs are out of tune,
And all the rhymes ring so untrue;
When I don't find the words to say
The thoughts I long to bring to you;
When I hear lonely singers
Who are just as lost as me
Making noise, not melody:

You will be my music.
You will be song.
You will be my music.
I can't wait any longer if I'm wrong.

I'll never find the song to tell me
All the things I need to say.
And I'm afraid as time goes by
That someday soon you'll go away.
And I'll be lost in trying
For songs I'll never sing.
Wanting you is everything:

You will be my music.
You will be song.
You will be my music.
I can't wait any longer if I'm wrong.
I can't wait any longer for my song.

FRANK SINATRA
YOU'D BE SO EASY TO 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

And we would be so grand at the game
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

You'd be so easy to love
Easy to idolize all others above
So worth the yearning for
So swell to keep all the home fires 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

Easy to love
Easy to love

FRANK SINATRA
YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE

When you walk through a storm, hold your head up high, and don't be afraid of the dark.
At the end of the storm, is the golden sky, and the sweet silver song of the lark.
Walk on through the wind, walk on through the rain,
Though your dreams be tossed and blown,
Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart,
And you'll never walk alone, you'll never walk alone.

FRANK SINATRA
YOU'RE A LUCKY FELLOW, MR. SMITH

(Now, see here, Mr. Smith or whatever your name may be.)
(You seem like a pretty nice guy, so I would like you to listen to me,)
(I don't want to butt into your business but I heard you complaining a lot,)
(Of a louse of a luck you have, and the good luck that others have got,)
(I say you're a little bit crazy, you have plenty of luck, my friend,)
(I think you should open your eyes, and discover your country again.)

Hey, you're a lucky fellow, Mr. Smith (Mr. Smith) to be able to live as you do,
And to have that swell Miss Liberty gal carrying the torch for you.
(You're a lucky fellow. Mr. Smith), look around you if you want to brag,
You should thank your lucky stars and I mean, thank all 50 in your flag.
(And you really got a family tree) with Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Lee,
(You're lucky to have ancestors like that),
you were born with a feather in your hat.
(You're a very very wealthy gent), I don't care if you haven't cent.
You can still have things your own way, on each election day.
If some poor suckers could choose, they like to be in your shoes,
,


You are a lucky fellow, Mr. Smith (Mr.Smith), to be able to swing like you do,
And to have that swell Miss Liberty gal carrying the torch for you
(You're a lucky fellow, Mr. Smith), look around you if you like to brag
You should thank your lucky stars and I mean, there are 50 in your flag.

You should look at the great constitution that we got.
(You're a very very wealthy gent), I don't care if you haven't a cent.
You can still have things your own way, on each election day.
You're blushing red, white and blue, but buddy, that's alright too,

You're a fortunate fellow, (yes, a fortunate fellow),
And a privileged person (and a privileged person),

FRANK SINATRA
YOU'RE DRIVING ME CRAZY!

You, you're driving me crazy! What did I do? What did I do?
My tears for you make everything hazy, clouding the skies of blue
How true, were the friends who were near me to cheer me
Believe, me they knew, but you
Were the kind who would hurt me, desert me
When I needed you
Yes you, you're driving me crazy! What did I do to you?

FRANK SINATRA
YOU'RE GONNA HEAR FROM ME

Move over, sun, and give me some sky
I got me some wings I'm eager to try
I may be unknown but wait till I've flown
You're gonna hear from me

Make me some room, you people up there
On top of the world, I'll meet you, I swear
I'm stakin' my claim, so remember my name
You're gonna hear from me

BRIDGE:
Fortune, smile on the road before me
I am fortune's child
Listen, world, you can't ignore me

I've got a song that longs to be played
Raise up my flag, begin my parade
Then watch the world over start comin' up Clover
That's how it's gonna be

[Instrumental bridge]

I've got a song that longs to be played
Raise up my flag, begin my parade
Then watch the world over start comin' up Clover
That's how it's gonna be, watch me
You're gonna hear, you're gonna hear from me

FRANK SINATRA
YOU'RE NOBODY 'TIL SOMEBODY LOVES YOU

You're a nobody till somebody loves you
You're nobody till somebody cares
You may be king, you may possess the world and its gold
But gold won't bring you happiness when you're growin' old

The world still is the same, you'll never change it
As sure as the stars shine above
You're nobody till somebody loves you
Find yourself somebody to love

[very brief instrumental]

You're a nobody till somebody loves you
You're nobody till somebody cares
You may be a king, you may possess the whole world and its gold
But gold won't bring you happiness when you're gettin' old

The world still is the same, you'll never change it
As sure as the stars shine above
You're nobody, nobody till somebody loves you
So find yourself somebody

[bridge]
Gotta get yourself somebody

Because you're nobody till somebody loves you
You're nobody till somebody cares
You may a king, you might possess the big fat world and its gold
But gold won't bring you happiness when you're growin' old

The world, the whole world's the same, you'll never change it change it
As sure as the stars shine above
You're a nobody till somebody loves you
So find yourself somebody somebody to love

FRANK SINATRA
YOU'RE SO RIGHT (FOR WHAT'S WRONG IN MY LIFE)

You're so right for what's wrong in my life.
You're as right as rain; how can I explain?
You just fill every void in my life.
Oh, so right for what's wrong.

Fingers reaching; searching for the touch
Of love's first meeting. Something tells me that
You're right for what's wrong in my life.
You're as right as rain; how can I explain?
You just fill all the need in my heart.
Oh, so right for what's wrong.

You've changed my world into a Shangri La.
Without a single word, I knew that you
Would right every wrong in my life.
Through the darkness of night,
You're my one shining light.
You're so right for what's wrong.

FRANK SINATRA
YOUNG AT HEART

Fairy tales can come true, it can happen to you
If you're young at heart.
For it's hard, you will find, to be narrow of mind
If you're young at heart.

You can go to extremes with impossible schemes.
You can laugh when your dreams fall apart at the seams.
And life gets more exciting with each passing day.
And love is either in your heart, or on it's way.

Don't you know that it's worth every treasure on earth
To be young at heart.
For as rich as you are, it's much better by far
To be young at heart.

And if you should survive to 105,
Look at all you'll derive out of being alive!
And here is the best part, you have a head start
If you are among the very young at heart.

[Musical interlude]

And if you should survive to 105,
Look at all you'll derive out of being alive!
And here is the best part, you have a head start
If you are among the very young at heart.

FRANK SINATRA
YOUNGER THAN SPRINGTIME

Younger than springtime are you, softer than starlight are you,
Warmer than winds of June are the gentle lips you gave me.
Gayer than laughter are you, sweeter than music are you,
Angel and lover, heaven and earth are you to give me.
And when your youth and joy invade my soul,
And fill my heart as now they do, then
Younger than springtime am I, gayer than laughter am I,
Angel and lover, heaven and earth am I with you.

FRANK SINATRA
ZING! WENT THE STRINGS OF MY HEART

[Intro]
Never could carry a tune, never knew where to start
You came along when everything was wrong and put a song in my heart


Dear when you smiled at me, I heard a melody
It haunted me from the start
Something inside of me started a symphony
Zing! Went the strings of my heart

'Twas like a breath of spring, heard a robin sing
About a nest set apart
All nature seemed to be in perfect harmony
Zing! Went the strings of my heart

Your eyes made skies blue again
What else could I do again
Keep repeating through again
I love you, love you

I still recall the thrill, guess I always will
I hope 'twill never depart
All nature seemed to be in perfect harmony
Zing! Went the strings of my heart

[instrumental]

Your eyes made skies blue again
What else could I do again?
Keep repeating through again
I love you, I do love you

I still recall the thrill, I guess that I always will
I hope 'twill never depart
All nature seemed to be in perfect harmony
Zing! Went the strings of my heart
