Don't the moon look lonesome shining through the trees, Don't the moon look lonesome shining through the trees, Don't your house look lonesome when you baby packs up to leave Sent for you yesterday and here you come today Sent for you yesterday and here you come today You can't love me baby and treat me this way Baby, baby what's on your mind Baby, baby, baby what's on your mind Keep me bothered and worried all the time By By By baby By By By baby By By, By By baby By By, By By, By By, By, baby By By

Sometimes I'm happy, Sometimes I'm blue. My disposition Depends on you. I never mind The rain, from the sky If I can find The sun, in your eyes. Sometimes I love you, Sometimes I hate you. But when I hate you, It's 'cause I love you. That's how I am So what can I do? I'm happy when I'm with you.

The Best Man 03:27
I guess I've got a heart meant For fooling around with chicks Cause in that love department I know the latest tricks I met a gal the other day, She was as sharp as a gal could be And I wasn't surprised to hear her say How she really went for me She said I was the best man Whoever knocked on her door She said I was the best man The fella she was waiting for She said I was the best man at dancing And nobody can deny And when it came to romancing I was the A plus number 1 guy Then she met my best friend And knocked him right off his pins But I wasn't worried 'Cause the best man always wins The way it all turned out There was no doubt That I was the best man in the end Yes, I was the best man When she married my best friend So don't you think you're the best Till you pass the test And you know all the latest tricks Or you'll wind up as the best man While the other guy gets the chicks

Grabbing up your hats, coats, boots and everything And leave your worries on the doorstep 'cause we're going by by Just direct your feet Cause soon we'll meet On that sunny side of the street Can you hear the pitters and the patters Of the raindrops trickling down them fire escape ladders Life would be so fine Fine as, mmm Red Red Wine I used to walk, walk, walk in the shade With my blues on parade, Boys I'm not afraid It's over, so move on over rover If I never have one cent I'll be rich as Rockefeller With the gold dust at mine On the sunny side of the street Grabbing up your hats, coats, boots and everything And leave your worries on the doorstep 'cause we're going by by Just direct your feet Cause you'll look neat On that sunny side of the street Can you hear the pitters and the patters Of the raindrops trickling down them fire escape ladders Life would be so fine Fine as, mmm Red Red Wine Well I used to walkata, walkata, walkata, walkata, walk in the shade With my blues out on parade, Boys I'm not afraid It's over, Cassanova If I never have one cent I'll be rich as Rockafeller With the gold dust at mine On the sunny On the shady On the sunny Side of the street

You should take the A train To get to Sugar Hill way up in Harlem If you take the A train You'll get to Sugar Hill and in a hurry Listen, now the train's a coming Listen hear the rails a humming Ohh You should take the A train To get to Sugar Hill way up in Harlem That old black magic has me West of the moon Where I just arrived from the Wollys destination Harlem Sho be do be oo be do be oo be, do be oo be, oo ee oo ee, ooee ooee, Doo bop boo diddlywah. . . let’s take the train some day Hurry, Hurry Man you better Scurry scurry Never need to Worry worry When you take the A train You should take the A train if you’re thinking of going up town You should take the A train it’s the swinginest trolley around Get this straight for it’s no freight train Hurry, Don’t be late it might rain, it might rain You should take the A train if you’re thinking of going up town You should take that train boy, it’s the swinginest trolley around That Chattanooga choo choo won’t do And don’t take the Santa Fe The great northern line and the southern pacific They don’t pass this way For the quickest way to get into Harlem Where they're still swinging to this day Jump on board the A train Let’s take the train today

Like the beat beat beat of the tom-tom When the jungle shadows fall Like the tick tick tock of the stately clock As it stands against the wall Like the drip drip drip of the raindrops When the summer shower is through There's a voice within me and it keeps repeating You, You, You Night and day, You are the one Only you beneath the moon or under the sun Whether near to me, or far It's no matter darling where you are I think of you, Night and day Night and Day, Why is it so That this longing for you follows wherever I go In the roaring traffic's boom In the silence of my lonely room I think of you, Night and day Day and night Under the hide of me There's an oh such a hungry yearning burning inside of me And this torment won't be through ‘Til you let me spend my life making love to you Day and night, Night and day

You knock back the Schnopps, You talk back to Cops You walk in the room and conversation stops I Can’t take you nowhere, I Can’t take you nowhere You stagger, You sag, You’re half in the bag, On glass of beer and you’re a total drag I Can’t take you nowhere, I can’t take you nowhere I buy 3 or 4 You mooch plenty more The check comes around and you are out the door I can’t take you nowhere, I can’t take you nowhere I don’t want to watch you fall on your Face You’re loud and you’re lude You tend toward the crude My friend’s are disgusted with you attitude I can’t take you nowhere, I can’t take you nowhere You mumble you moan You grumble you groan, You called Honalulu on my telephone I can’t take you nowhere, I can’t take you nowhere I hear people say You won’t go away You stop by for breakfast and you stay all day I can’t take you nowhere, I can’t take you nowhere That’s right Try not to get uptight, But I can’t take you nowhere Cause I don’t know a place Where you can show your face And anyway, I’d just like to say, So sad to say you must be on your Way So have a real nice day But I can’t take you nowhere Cause I don’t know a place where you can show your face And anyway, I’d just like to say, So sad to say you must be on your way What a pity to say So Long

Tulip or turnip Rosebud or rhubarb Fillet or plain beef stew Tell me, tell me, tell me, dream face What am I to do Diamond or doorknob Sapphire of sawdust Champagne or just home brew Tell me, tell me, tell me, dream face What am I to you Do I get the booby-prize Or will I be the hero Am I headed for blue skies Or is my ceiling zero Tulip or turnip Moonbeam or mudpie Bankroll or I.O.U.

Treat me sweet and gentle When you say goodnight Just Squeeze me But please don't tease me I get sentimental When you hold me tight Just squeeze me But please don't tease me Missing you since you went away I'm singing those blues away all day Just counting the nights and waiting for you I'm in the mood to let you know That I never knew I loved you so Please say that you love me too Cause when I get this feeling I'm in ecstasy So don't tease me Darling just squeeze me

Pardon the smile on my face, my friend Dreaming of reachin' my journey's end I'm headin' straight for my heart's desire Ain't it good to know I'm near the home fires All of the folks that I know are there And I've got a date with my fave'rit chair With every step how my heart grows higher Didn't know how much I missed the home fire Well, the noises, the tv, the rusty old pipes, The cat always teasin' my dog, The neighbors, the quarrels, the screaming of kids For the first time in years I'll sleep like a log Cause heaven is waiting for me, my friend 7 or 8 drinks around the bend So if you're ever in town inquire Cause we'll be glad to have you here in the home Fire

Be wise, Be fair, Be sure, Be there, Behave, Beware Be wise, Be smart, Behave my heart Don't upset your cart when she's so close Be soft, Be sweet, But be discreet Don't go off your feet She's too close for comfort Too close, too close for comfort, no, not again Too close, too close to know just when to say when Be firm and be fair, Be absolutely sure, Beware Arm your guard, take care, When there's such temptation One thing leads to another Too late to run for cover She's much too close for comfort now Be wise, Be fair, Be sure, Beware Put on your old thinking cap, boy, 'Cause if you don't look out, you, Will find that you are much too Too close for comfort Your headin’ for a mishap, boy, The first thing that you know she Will have you up that old tree She's too close for comfort Too close, too-oo-oo close, Much too close Sha dowee-ah-doo-baa-doo-wah, dowee-ah-doo-baa-doo-wah Be firm and be fair, Be absolutely sure, Beware Arm your guard, take care When there is such temptation One thing leads to another Too late to run for cover She's much too close for comfort now One thing leads to another Too late to run for cover She's much too close for comfort now One thing leads to another Too late to run for your mother She's much too close for comfort now Be wise, Be fair, Be sure, Be there, Behave, Beware She's too close, too close, for comfort now

This will make you laugh I staked my dreams on you This will make you laugh They never did come true I took a chance on the one romance And swore it couldn't miss I should have known better Than to judge a heart by a kiss This will make you laugh I once believed in you But for all my love You didn't see it through Of all the fools I break the rules I love you still you see This will make you laugh But it's not funny to me
