TAKE A LETTER MARIA - R. B. Greaves

Last night as I got home about a half past ten
There was the woman I thought I knew
In the arms of another man
I kept my cool, I ain't no fool
Let me tell you what happened then
I packed some clothes and I walked out
And I ain't going back again

So take a letter Maria, address it to my wife
Say I won't be coming home, gonna start a new life
So take a letter Maria, address it to my wife
Send a copy to my lawyer, gotta start a new life

You've been many things but most of all a good secretary to me
And it's times like this I feel you've always been close to me
Was I wrong to work nights to try to build a good life
All work and no play has just cost me a wife

So take a letter Maria, address it to my wife
Say I won't be coming home, gonna start a new life
So take a letter Maria, address it to my wife
Send a copy to my lawyer, gotta start a new life

When a man loves a woman it's hard to understand
That she would find more pleasure in the arms of another man
I never really noticed how sweet you are to me
It just so happens I'm free tonight
Would you like to have dinner with me

So take a letter Maria, address it to my wife
Say I won't be coming home, gonna start a new life
So take a letter Maria, address it to my wife
Send a copy to my lawyer, gotta start a new life

So take a letter Maria, address it to my wife
Send a copy to my lawyer, gotta start a new life.


THANK YOU FOR THE MUSIC - Benny Andersson & Bjrn Ulvaeus

I'm nothing special
In fact I'm a bit of a bore
If I tell a joke
You've probably heard it before
But I have a talent
A wonderful thing
'Cos everyone listens
When I start to sing
I'm so grateful and proud
All I want is to sing it out loud

So I say thank you for the music
The songs I'm singing
Thanks for all the joy they're bringing
Who can live without it
I ask in all honesty
What would life be
Without a song or a dance what are we
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me

Mother said I was a dancer before I could walk
She says I began
To sing long before I could talk
And I've often wondered
How did it all start
And found out that nothing can capture our heart
Like a melody can
Well whoever it was, I'm a fan

So I say thank you for the music
The songs I'm singing
Thanks for all the joy they're bringing
Who can live without it
I ask in all honesty
What would life be
Without a song or a dance what are we
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me

I've been so lucky
I am the girl with golden hair
I wanna sing it out to everybody
What a joy, what a life, what a chance

Thank you for the music
The songs I'm singing
Thanks for all the joy they're bringing
Who can live without it
I ask in all honesty
What would life be
Without a song or a dance what are we
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me

So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me.


THAT OLD BLACK MAGIC - Johnny Mercer & Harold Arlen

That old black magic has me in its spell
That old black magic that you weave so well
Icy fingers up and down my spine
The same old witchcraft when your eyes meet mine

The same old tingle that I feel inside
When that elevator starts its ride
Down and down I go, round and round I go
Like a leaf that's caught in the tide

I should stay away but what can I do
I hear your name, and I'm aflame
Aflame with such a burning desire
That only your kiss can put out the fire

You are the lover that I've waited for
The mate that fate had me created for
And every time your lips meet mine

Baby down and down I go, all around I go
In a spin, loving the spin that I'm in
Under that old black magic called love.


THAT'S LIFE! - D. Kay & K. Gordon

That's life, that's what people say
You're riding high in April
Shot down in May
But I know I'm gonna change that tune
When I'm back on top in June

That's life, funny as it seems
Some people get their kicks
Steppin' on dreams
But I don't let it get me down
'Cos this ol' world keeps on spinning 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, I can't deny it
I thought of quitting
But my heart just won't buy it
If I didn't think it was worth a try
I'd roll myself up in a big ball and die.


THE BALLAD OF JOHN & YOKO - John Lennon & Paul McCartney

Standing in the dock at Southampton
Trying to get to Holland or France
The man in the mac said, "You've got to go back"
You know they didn't even give us a chance

Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me

Finally made the plane into Paris
Honeymooning down by the Seine
Peter Brown called to say, "You can make it O.K.
You can get married in Gibraltar, near Spain"

Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me

Drove from Paris to the Amsterdam Hilton
Talking in our beds for a week
The newspapers said, "Say what you doing in bed?"
I said, "We're only trying to get us some peace"

Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me

Saving up your money for a rainy day
Giving all your clothes to charity
Last night the wife said
"Oh boy, when you're dead
You don't take nothing with you
But your soul - think!"

Made a lightning trip to Vienna
Eating chocolate cake in a bag
The newspapers said, "She's gone to his head
They look just like two gurus in drag"

Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me

Caught an early plane back to London
Fifty acorns tied in a sack
The men from the press said, "We wish you success
It's good to have the both of you back"

Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me.


THE BEAT GOES ON - Sonny Bono

The beat goes on, the beat goes on
Drums keep pounding a rhythm to the brain
La de da de de, la de da de da

Charleston was once the rage, uh huh
History has turned the page, uh huh
The mini skirts the current thing, uh huh
Teenybopper is our newborn king, uh huh

The beat goes on, the beat goes on
Drums keep pounding a rhythm to the brain
La de da de de, la de da de da

The grocery store's the super mart, uh huh
Little girls still break their hearts, uh huh
And men still keep on marching off to war
Electrically they keep a baseball score

The beat goes on, the beat goes on
Drums keep pounding a rhythm to the brain
La de da de de, la de da de da

Grandmas sit in chairs and reminisce
Boys keep chasing girls to get a kiss
The cars keep going faster all the time
Bums still cry "hey buddy, have you got a dime"

The beat goes on, the beat goes on
Drums keep pounding a rhythm to the brain
La de da de de, la de da de da.


THE BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN - Phillip Lynott

Guess who just got back today
Them wild-eyed boys that had been away
Haven't changed haven't much to say
But man, I still think those cats are great

They were asking if you were around
How you was, where you could be found
I told them you were living down town
Driving all the old men crazy

The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town
Oh yes, the boys are back in town

The boys are back
The boys are back
The boys are back
The boys are back

You know that chick that used to dance a lot
Every night she'd be on the floor shaking what she'd got
Man, when I tell you she was cool, she was red hot
I mean she was steaming

That night over at Johnny's place
Well this chick got up and she slapped Johnny's face
Man, we just fell about the place
If that chick don't want to know, forget her

The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town
Oh yes, the boys are back in town

The boys are back
The boys are back
The boys are back
The boys are back

Friday night they'll be dressed to kill
Down at Dino's bar and grill
The drink will flow and blood will spill
If the boys want to fight, you'd better let them

That jukebox in the corner blasting out my favourite song
The nights are getting warmer, it won't be long
It won't be long till summer comes
Now that the boys are here again

The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town
Oh yes, the boys are back in town
Oh the boys are back in town

The boys are back
The boys are back
The boys are back
The boys are back
The boys are back
The boys are back
The boys are back
The boys are back
The boys are back in town.


THE CANDY MAN - Anthony Newley & Leslie Bricusse

Who can take a sunrise
Sprinkle it with dew
Cover it with chocolate
And a miracle or two
The candy man
The candy man can
The candy man can
'Cos he mixes it with love
And makes the world taste good

Who can take a rainbow
Wrapped it in a sigh
Sit it in the sun
And make a strawberry lemon pie
The candy man
The candy man can
The candy man can
'Cos he mixes it with love
And makes the world taste good

The candy man makes
Everything he bakes
Satisfying and delicious
Talk about your childhood wishes
You can even eat the dishes

Who can take tomorrow
Dip it in a dream
Separate the sorrow
And collect up all the cream
The candy man
The candy man can
The candy man can
'Cos he mixes it with love
And makes the world taste good

And the world tastes good
'Cos the candy man thinks it should
The candy man
The candy man.


THE CARNIVAL IS OVER - T. Springfield & F. Farian

Say goodbye, my own true lover
As we sing a lover's song
How it breaks my heart to leave you
Now the carnival is gone

High above, the dawn is waking
And my tears are falling rain
For the carnival is over
We may never meet again

Like a drum my heart was beating
And your kiss was sweet as wine
But the joys of love are fleeting
For Pierrot and Columbine

Now the cloak of night is falling
This will be our last goodbye
Though the carnival is over
I will love you till I die

Like a drum my heart was beating
And your kiss was sweet as wine
But the joys of love are fleeting
For Pierrot and Columbine

Now the cloak of night is falling
This will be our last goodbye
Though the carnival is over
I will love you till I die

Though the carnival is over
I will love you till I die.


THE BALLAD OF SWEENEY TODD - Stephen Sondheim

Attend the tale of Sweeney Todd
His skin was pale and his eye was odd
He shaved the faces of gentlemen
who never thereafter were heard of again
He trod a path that few have trod
Did Sweeney Todd
The demon barber of Fleet Street

He kept a shop in London town
Of fancy clients and good renown
And what if none of their souls were saved
They went to their maker impecably shaved
By Sweeney
By Sweeney Todd
The demon barber of Fleet Street

Swing your razor wide
Sweeney, hold it to the skies
Freely flows the blood of those who moralize

His needs were few, his shop was bare
A lavabo and a fancy chair
A mug of suds, and a leather strop
An apron, a towel, a pail, and a mop
For neatness he deserves a nod
Does Sweeney Todd
The demon barber of Fleet Street

Inconspicuous Sweeney was
Quick, and quiet and clean he was
Back of his smile, under his word
Sweeney heard music that nobody heard
Sweeney pondered and Sweeney planned
Like a perfect machine he planned
Sweeney was smooth, Sweeney was subtle
Sweeney would blink, and rats would scuttle
Sweeney! Sweeney! Sweeney! Sweeney!
Sweeney!

Swing your razor wide
Sweeney, hold it to the skies
Freely flows the blood of those who moralize

Attend the tale of Sweeney Todd!
He served a dark and hungry God!

What happened then, well that's the play
and he wouldn't want us to give it away...

Not Sweeney
Not Sweeney Todd
The demon barber of Fleet...
Street...


THE GIRL FROM IPANEMA - Jobim/Gimbel/DeMoraes

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, ah

Oh, 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
She just doesn't see, she never sees me...


THE GREATEST LOVE OF ALL - Michael Masser/Linda Creed

I believe the children are our are future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be
Everybody searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
I never found anyone to fulfill my needs
A lonely place to be
So I learned to depend on me

I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone's shadows
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can't take away my dignity
Because the greatest love of all
Is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all
Inside of me
The greatest love of all
Is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
It is the greatest love of all

I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be

I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone's shadows
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can't take away my dignity
Because the greatest love of all
Is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all
Inside of me
The greatest love of all
Is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
It is the greatest love of all

And if by chance, that special place
That you've been dreaming of
Leads you to a lonely place
Find your strength in love.


THE HUSTLE - Van McCoy

Look here's a dance
So old it's new
'Cause trash disco is seventies cool
Like country line dance, to some it's fine
Sadly though, you gotta lose your mind
Get organized, discipline is fun
I want to encourage everyone
To coordinate your steps and clap
Avoid the individuality trap
Take a walk on the wild side
And the African-American women sing
Do the Hustle!
Do the Hustle!
Do the Hustle!

Do the Hustle!

Express yourself
Is a wonderful thought
But right here, right now, please do not!
Specific moves fit the grooves
You got nothing more to prove
Coordinate your steps and clap
Avoid the individuality trap
Take a walk on the wild side
And the African-American women sing
Do the Hustle!
Do the Hustle!
Do the Hustle!

Hey!

Do it!

Everybody!

Everybody!

Hey!

Do the Hustle!

All the boys and all the girls

Doin' the Hustle

Do the Hustle

Everybody

Get up!

It's fun!

It's free!


THE JOKER - Anthony Newley & Leslie Bricusse

There's always a joker in the pack
There's always a lonely clown
The poor laughing fool falls on his back
And ev'ryone laughs when he's down
There's always a funny man in the game
But he's only funny by mistake
But ev'ryone laughs at him, just the same
They don't see his lonely heart break
They don't care as long as there is a jester, just a fool
As foolish as he can be
There's always a joker, that's a rule
But fate deals the hand and I see
The joker is me

There's always a funny man in the game
But he's only funny by mistake
But ev'ryone laughs at him, just the same
They don't see his lonely heart break
They don't care as long as there is a jester, just a fool
As foolish as he can be
There's always a joker, that's a rule
But fate deals the hand and I see
The joker is me
The joker is me
The joker is me.


THE JOKER - Steve Miller

Some people call me the space cowboy, yeah
Some call me the gangster of love
Some people call me Maurice
'Cause I speak of the pompitous of love

People talk about me, baby
Say I'm doin' you wrong, doin' you wrong
Well, don't you worry, baby, don't worry
'Cause I'm right here, right here, right here, right here at home

'Cause I'm a picker, I'm a grinner
I'm a lover and I'm a sinner
I play my music in the sun
I'm a joker, I'm a smoker
I'm a midnight toker
I sure don't want to hurt no one

I'm a picker, I'm a grinner
I'm a lover and I'm a sinner
I play my music in the sun
I'm a joker, I'm a smoker
I'm a midnight toker
I get my lovin' on the run
Whooo Whooooo!

You're the cutest thing that I ever did see
I really love your peaches, wanna shake your tree
Lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey all the time
Ooo-eee baby, I'll sure show you a good time

'Cause I'm a picker, I'm a grinner
I'm a lover and I'm a sinner
I play my music in the sun
I'm a joker, I'm a smoker
I'm a midnight toker
I get my lovin' on the run

I'm a picker, I'm a grinner
I'm a lover and I'm a sinner
I play my music in the sun
I'm a joker, I'm a smoker
I'm a midnight toker
I sure don't want to hurt no one

People keep talking about me, baby
They say I'm doin' you wrong
Well don't you worry, don't worry, no don't worry, mama
'Cause I'm right here at home

You're the cutest thing I ever did see
Really love your peaches, wanna shake your tree
Lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey all the time.


THE MORE I SEE YOU - Gordon & Warren

The more I see you
The more I want you
Somehow this feeling
Just grows and grows
With every sigh
I become more mad about you
More lost without you
And so it goes

Can you imagine
How much I love you
The more I see you
As years go by
I know the only one for me
Can only be you
My arms won't free you
My heart won't try

I know the only one for me
Can only be you
My arms won't free you
My heart won't try.


THE WAY OF LOVE - Dieva/Ringauche/Stillman

When you meet a boy
That you like a lot
And you fall in love
But he loves you not
The flames should start
As you hold him near
Better keep your heart out of danger dear

For the way of love
Is a way of woe
And the day may come
When you'll see him go
Then what will you do
When he sets you free
Just the way that you said goodbye to me

When you meet a boy
That you like a lot
And you fall in love
But he loves you not
If a flame should start
As you hold him near
Better keep your heart out of danger dear

For the way of love
Is a way of woe
And the day may come
When you'll see him go
Then what will you do
When he sets you free
Just the way that you said goodbye to me

That's the way of love
That's the way of love
The way of love.


THE WINDMILLS OF YOUR MIND - Michel Legrand, Alan & Marilyn Bergman

Round like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning on an ever-spinning reel
Like a snowball down a mountain or a carnival balloon
Or a carousel that's turning running rings around the moon
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping past the minutes on its face
And the world is like an apple spinning silently in space
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind

Keys that jingle in your pocket
Words that jangle in your head
Why did summer go so quickly?
Was it something that you said?
Lovers walk along a shore
They leave their footprints in the sand
Was the sound of distant drumming
Just the fingers of your hand?
Pictures hanging in a hallway
Or the fragments of a song
Half-remembered names and faces
But to whom do they belong?
When you knew that it was over
You were suddenly aware
That the autumn leaves were turning
To the colour of her hair

Like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning
On an ever-spinning reel
As the images unwind
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind
Your mind
Your mind!


THINGS - Bobby Darin

Ev'ry night I sit here by my window (window)
Starin' at the lonely avenue (avenue)
Watching lovers holdin' hands 'n' laughin' (laughin')
And thinkin' 'bout the things we used to do

(Thinkin' of things) Like a walk in the park
(Things) Like a kiss in the dark
(Things) Like a sailboat ride
(Yeah-yeah) What about the night we cried?
Things like a lover's vow
Things that we don't do now
Thinkin' about the things we used to do

Memories are all I have to cling to (cling to)
And heartaches are the friends I'm talkin' to (talkin' to)
When I'm not thinkin' of a just how much I love you (love you)
Well, I'm a thinkin' 'bout the things we used to do

(Thinkin' of things) Like a walk in the park
(Things) Like a kiss in the dark
(Things) Like a sailboat ride
(Yeah-yeah) What about the night we cried?
Things like a lover's vow
Things that we don't do now
Thinkin' about the things we used to do

I still can hear the jukebox softly playin' (playin')
And the face I see each day belongs to you (belongs to you)
Though there's not a single sound and there's nobody else around
Well, it's a just me thinkin' of the things we used to do

(Thinkin' of things) Like a walk in the park
(Things) Like a kiss in the dark
(Things) Like a sailboat ride
(Yeah-yeah) What about the night we cried?
Things like a lover's vow
Things that we don't do now
Thinkin' about the things we used to do

And the heartaches are the friends I'm talkin' to
Ya got me thinkin' about the things we used to do

Starin' at the lonely avenue.


THIS COULD BE THE START OF SOMETHING BIG - Steve Allen

You're walkin' along the street, or you're at a party
Or else you're alone and then you suddenly dig
You're looking' in someone's eyes, you suddenly realize
That this could be the start of something big

You're lunching at Twenty-One and watchin' your diet
Declining a charlotte russe, accepting a fig
When out of a clear blue sky, it's suddenly gal and guy
And this could be the start of something big

There's no controlling the unrolling of your fate, my friend
Who knows what's written in the magic book
But when a lover you discover at the gate my friend
Invite her in without a second look

You're up in an aeroplane or dining at Sardi's
Or lying at Malibu alone on the sand
You suddenly hear a bell, and right away you can tell
That this could be the start of something grand

This could be the start of something very big
Why don't you play your part?
Please give your heart to me... and see
This could be the start of something wonderful
Why don't you take a chance? Just try romance with me... and see

Your watchin' the sun come up and countin' your money
Or else in a dim cafe you're ordering wine
Then suddenly there he is, and you wanna be where he is
And this must be the start of something...
This could be the heart of something...
This could be the start of something big.


THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE - Sammy Cahn & James Van Heusen

There are those, I suppose
Think we're mad, heaven knows
The world has gone to rack and to ruin

What we think is chic
Unique
And quite adorable
They think is odd and "Sodom and Gomorrah"-ble!

But the fact is
Everything today is thoroughly modern

Check your personality

Everything today makes yesterday slow

Better face reality

It's not insanity
Says Vanity Fair
In fact, it's quite stylish to
Raise your skirts and bob your hair

Everything today is thoroughly modern

Bands are getting jazzier

Everything today is starting to go

Cars are getting snazzier

Men say it's criminal what women'll do
What they're forgetting is

This is 1922!

Have you seen the way they kiss in the movies

Isn't it delectable?

Painting lips and pencil lining your brow
Now is quite respectable

Good-bye, good goody girl
I'm changing and how

So beat the drums 'cause here comes
Thoroughly Modern

Millie

Now!


THOSE LAZY HAZY CRAZY DAYS OF SUMMER - Karste & Bradtke

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Let's talk of song and sun and moon and shine and cheer

Just fill your basket full of sandwiches and weenies
Then lock the house up, now you're set
And on the beach you'll see the girls in their bikinis
As cute as ever but they never get 'em wet

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
You'll wish that summer could always be here

No need to tell a girl and fella 'bout a drive-in
Or a romantic movie scene
Why from the moment that those Falcons start arrivin'
You'll see more kissin' in the cars than on the screen

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
You'll wish that summer could always be here

You'll wish that summer could always be here.


THOSE WERE THE DAYS - Gene Raskin

Once upon a time there was a tavern
Where we used to raise a glass or two
Remember how we'd laugh away the hours
Dream of all the great things we would do

Those were the days my friend
We thought they'd never end
We'd sing and dance for ever and a day
We'd live the life we'd choose
We'd fight and never lose
For we were young and sure to have our way
la la la la la la la la la
Those were the days
Oh yes, those were the days

Then the busy years went rushing by us
We lost our starry notions on the way
If by chance I'd see you in the tavern
We'd smile at one another and we'd say

Those were the days my friend
We thought they'd never end
We'd sing and dance for ever and a day
We'd live the life we'd choose
We'd fight and never lose
For we were young and sure to have our way
la la la la la la la la la
Those were the days
Oh yes, those were the days

Just tonight I stood before the tavern
Nothing seemed the way it used to be
In the glass I saw a strange reflection
Was that lonely woman really me?

Those were the days my friend
We thought they'd never end
We'd sing and dance for ever and a day
We'd live the life we'd choose
We'd fight and never lose
For we were young and sure to have our way
la la la la la la la la la
Those were the days
Oh yes, those were the days

Through the door there came familiar laughter
I saw your face and heard you call my name
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same

Those were the days my friend
We thought they'd never end
We'd sing and dance for ever and a day
We'd live the life we'd choose
We'd fight and never lose
Those were the days
Oh yes, those were the days
la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
la la la la la la la la la la la la
Those were the days
Oh yes, those were the days.


THREE COINS IN THE FOUNTAIN - Sammy Cahn & Jules Styne

Make it mine
Make it mine
Please, make it mine

Three coins in the fountain
Each one seeking happiness
Thrown by three hopeful lovers
Which on 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

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.


TINTARELLA DI LUNA

Italian

Abbronzate, tutte chiazze
pellirosse un po` paonazze
son le ragazze che prendono il sol
ma ce n` una
che prende la luna

Tintarella di luna
tintarella color latte
tutta notte sopra il tetto
sopra al tetto come i gatti
e se c` la luna piena
tu diventi candida

Tintarella di luna
tintarella color latte
che fa bianca la tua pelle
ti fa bella tra le belle
e se c` la luna piena
tu diventi candida

Tin tin tin
raggi di luna
tin tin tin
baciano te
al mondo nessuna candida come te

Tintarella di luna
tintarella color latte
tutta notte sopra il tetto
sopra al tetto come i gatti
e se c` la luna piena
tu diventi candida

Tin tin tin
raggi di luna
tin tin tin
baciano te
al mondo nessuna candida come te

Tintarella di luna
tintarella color latte
tutta notte sopra il tetto
sopra al tetto come i gatti
e se c` la luna piena
tu diventi candida
E se c` la luna piena
tu diventi candida
E se c` la luna piena
tu diventi candida, candida, candida!


TINTARELLA DI LUNA

English

Bronzed, all freckled
Redheads a bit purple
They're the girls that take the sun
But there isn't one
That takes the moon

Moon tan
Milk coloured tan
Every night on the roof
On the roof like cats
And if it's a full moon
you get all white

Moon tan
Milk coloured tan
That makes your skin pale
Makes you beautiful among the beautiful
And if it's a full moon
you get all white

Tin tin tin
Rays of the moon
Tin tin tin
Kiss you
In the whole world there is no one
as pale as you

Moon tan
Milk coloured tan
Every night on the roof
On the roof like cats
And if it's a full moon
you get all white

Tin tin tin
Rays of the moon
Tin tin tin
Kiss you
In the whole world there is no one
as pale as you

Moon tan
Milk coloured tan
Every night on the roof
On the roof like cats
And if it's a full moon
you get all white
And if it's a full moon
you get all white, white, white!


TOGETHER - Stephen Sondheim

From the musical Gypsy

ROSEHERBIEROSE & HERBIEHERBIE & LOUISELOUISEALL

Wherever we go, whatever we do
We're gonna go through it together
We may not go far, but sure as a star
Wherever we are, it's together

Wherever I go I know he goes
Wherever I go I know she goes
No fits, no fights, no feuds
And no egos, Amigos, together!

Through thick and through thin
All out or all in
And whether it's win, place or show
With you for me and me for you
We'll muddle through whatever we do
Together, wherever we go

Wherever we go, whatever we do
We're gonna go through it together

Wherever we sleep, if prices are steep
We'll always sleep cheaper together

Whatever the boat I row, you row
A duo
Whatever the row I hoe, you hoe
A trio
And any I. O. U., I owe you-oh's?
Who, me-oh? No, you-oh
No, we-oh
Together!

We All take the bow
Including the cow
Though business is lousy and slow
With Herbie's vim, Louise's verve
Now all we need is someone with nerve
Together
Together
Wherever
Wherever
Together, wherever
Together, wherever we go

We go in a group
We tour in a troupe
We land in the soup, but we know
The things we do, we do by threes
A perfect team
No, this way, Louise!
Together

Together
Wherever
Wherever
Together, wherever we go!

TWISTED - Annie Ross & Wardell Gray

My analyst told me
That I was right out of my head
The way he described it
He said I'd be better dead than live
I didn't listen to his jive
I knew all along
That he was all wrong
And I knew that he thought
I was crazy but I'm not
Oh no

My analyst told me
That I was right out of my head
He said I'd need treatment
But I'm not that easily led
He said I was the type
That was most inclined
When out of his sight
To be out of my mind
And he thought I was nuts
No more ifs or ands or buts

They say as a child
I appeared a little bit wild
With all my crazy ideas
But I knew what was happening
I knew I was a genius...
What's so strange when you know
That you're a wizard at three
I knew that this was meant to be

Now I heard little children
Were supposed to sleep tight
That's why I got into the vodka one night
My parents got frantic
Didn't know what to do
But I saw some crazy scenes
Before I came to
Now do you think I was crazy
I may have been only three
But I was swinging

They all laugh at angry young men
They all laugh at Edison
And also at Einstein
So why should I feel sorry
If they just couldn't understand
The idiomatic logic
That went on in my head
I had a brain
It was insane
Oh they used to laugh at me
When I refused to ride
On all those double decker buses
All because there was no driver on the top

My analyst told me
That I was right out of my head
But I said dear doctor
I think that it's you instead
Because I have got a thing
That's unique and new
To prove it I'll have
The last laugh on you
Cause instead of one head
I got two
And you know two heads are better than one.

UP, UP AND AWAY - Jimmy Webb

Would you like to ride
In my beautiful balloon
Would you like to glide
In my beautiful balloon
We could float among the stars
Together you and I
For we can fly
For we can fly

Up, up and away
In my beautiful
My beautiful balloon

The worlds a nicer place
In my beautiful balloon
It wears a nicer face
In my beautiful balloon
We can sing a song
And sail along the silver sky
For we can fly
For we can fly

Up and away
In my beautiful
My beautiful balloon

Suspended under a twilight canopy
Well search the sky for a star to guide us
If by some chance you find yourself loving me
Well find a cloud to hide us
Keep the moon beside us

Love is waiting there
In my beautiful balloon
Way up in the air
In my beautiful balloon
If youll hold my hand
Well chase your dream across the sky
For we can fly
For we can fly

Up, up and away
My beautiful
My beautiful balloon
Balloon...
Up, up, and away...

Walk On The Wild Side - Lou Reed

Holly came from Miami FLA
Hitch-hiked her way across the USA
Plucked her eyebrows on the way
Shaved her leg and then he was a she
She said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side,
Said, hey honey, take a walk on the wild side

Candy came from out on the island
In the backroom she was everybody's darling
But she never lost her head
Even when she was given head
She said, hey baby, take a walk on the wild side
She said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
And the coloured girls go, doo doo doo, doo ...

Little Joe never once gave it away
Everybody had to pay and pay
A hustle here and a hustle there
New York city is the place where they said:
Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
I said hey Joe, take a walk on the wild side

Sugar Plum Fairy came and hit the streets
Lookin' for soul food and a place to eat
Went to the Apollo
You should have seen him go, go, go
They said, hey Sugar, take a walk on the wild side
I said, hey honey, take a walk on the wild side

Jackie is just speeding away
Thought she was James Dean for a day
Then I guess she had to crash
Valium would have helped that dash
She said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
I said, hey honey, take a walk on the wild side
And the coloured girls say doo doo doo, doo ...

WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS

I've paid my dues
Time after time
I've done my sentence
But committed no crime
And bad mistakes
I've made a few
I've had my share of sand kicked in my face
But I've come through

We are the champions my friends
And we'll keep on fighting till the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cause we are the champions of the world

I've taken my bows
And my curtain calls
You brought me fame and fortune and everything that goes with it
I thank you all

But it's been no bed of roses
No pleasure cruise
I consider it a challenge before the whole human race
And I ain't gonna lose

We are the champions my friends
And we'll keep on fighting till the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cause we are the champions of the world.


WE DO IT- Russel Stone

WEDDING BELL BLUES - Laura Nyro

Bill, I love you so, I always will
I look at you and I see the passion eyes of May
Oh, but am I ever gonna see my wedding day
I was on your side Bill when you were losin'
I never scheme or lie Bill, there's been no foolin'
But kisses and love won't carry me till you marry me Bill

I love you so, I always will
And in your voice I hear a choir of carousels
Oh, but am I ever gonna hear my wedding bells
I was the one who came runnin' when you were lonely
I haven't lived one day not lovin' you only
But kisses and love won't carry me till you marry me Bill

I love you so, I always will
And though devotion rules my heart I take no bows
But Bill you're never gonna take those wedding vows
Oh, come on Bill
Oh, come on Bill
Come on and marry me Bill
I got the wedding bell blues
Please marry me Bill
I got the wedding bell blues
Marry me Bill.


WHAT KIND OF FOOL AM I - Leslie Bricusse & Anthony Newley

What kind of fool am I, who never fell in love?
It seems that I'm the only one I have been thinking of
What kind of man is this? An empty shell, a lonely cell
In which an empty heart must dwell?
What kind of lips are these that lied with every kiss?
That whispered empty words of love that left me alone like this?
Why can't I fall in love like any other man?
And maybe then I'll know what kind of fool I am
What kind of clown am I? What do I know of life?
Why can't I cast away the mask of play and live my life?
Why can't I fall in love, till I don't give a damn?
And maybe I'll know what kind of fool I am.


WHERE IS THE LOVE - McDonald & Salter

Where is the love
Where is the love
Where is the love
You said you'd give to me
Soon as you were free
Will it ever be
Where is the love

You told me that you didn't love her
And you were gonna say goodbye
But if you really didn't mean it
Why did you have to lie
Where is the love you said was mine oh mine
Till the end of time
Was it just a lie
Where is the love

If you have had a sudden change of heart
I wish that you would tell me so
Don't keep me hanging on to promises
You've got to let me know
Oh how I wish I'd never met you
I guess it must have been my fate
To fall in love with someone else's love
All I can do is wait

Where is the love you said was mine oh mine
Till the end of time
Was it just a lie
Where is the love
Where is the love
Where is the love.


WITCHCRAFT - Carolyn Leigh & Cy Coleman

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 your leading me to

It's such an ancient pitch
But one I wouldn't switch
'Cause there's no nicer witch than you.


WIVES AND LOVERS - Hal David & Burt Bacharach

Hey! Little girl
Comb your hair, fix your makeup
Soon he will open the door
Don't think because there's a ring on your finger
You needn't try anymore

For wives should always be lovers too
Run to his arms the moment he comes home to you
I'm warning you

Day after day
There are girls at the office
And men will always be men
Don't send him off with your hair still in curlers
You may not see him again

For 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'd wear to go to the city and
Dim all the lights, pour the wine, start the music
Time to get ready for love
Time to get ready
Time to get ready
Time to get ready for love

He's almost here

Hey! Little girl
Better wear something pretty
Something you'd wear to go to the city and
Dim all the lights, pour the wine, start the music
Time to get ready for love
Time to get ready
Time to get ready
Time to get ready for love.

XANADU - Jeff Lynne

A place where nobody dared to go
The love that we came to know
They call it Xanadu

And now, open your eyes and see
What we have made is real
We are in Xanadu

A million lights are dancing
And there you are, a shooting star
An everlasting world and you're here with me
Eternally

Xanadu Xanadu (now we are here)
In Xanadu
Xanadu Xanadu (now we are here)
In Xanadu

Xanadu your neon lights will shine
For you Xanadu

The love, the echoes of long ago
You needed the world to know, they are in Xanadu

The dream that came through a million years
That lived on through all the tears
It came to Xanadu

A million lights are dancing and there you are
A shooting star, an everlasting world and you're
Here with me eternally

Xanadu Xanadu (now we are here)
In Xanadu

Now that I'm here, now that you're near in Xanadu.

YEH YEH - Grant/Patrick/Hendricks

Ev'ry evening, when all my days work is through
I call my baby, and ask her what shall we do
I mention movies, and she don't seem to dig that
And then she asked me, why don't I come to the flat
And have some supper and have the evening pass by
By playing records, beside the groovy hifi
I said yeh yeh, that's what I say, I said yeh yeh

My baby loves me, she gets me feeling so fine
And when she loves me, she makes me know that she's mine
And when she kisses, I feel the fire get hot
She never misses, she gives it all that she's got
And when she asks me, if ev'rything is OK
I've got my answer, the only thing I can say
I said yeh yeh, that's what I say, I said yeh yeh

We'll play a melody and turn the lights down low
So that none can see, we gotta do that, we gotta do that
We gotta do that, we gotta do that
And there'll be no one else alive in all the world
'Cept you and me, yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh

My pretty baby, I never knew such a thrill
It's hard to tell you, because I'm tremblin' still
My pretty baby, I want you all for my own
I think I'm ready, to leave those others alone
No need to ask me, if everything is OK
I've got my answer, the only thing I can say I said yeh yeh
That's what I say, I said yeh yeh

We'll play a melody and turn the lights down low
So that none can see, we gotta do that we gotta do that yeh yeh
We gotta do that, we gotta do that
And there'll be no one else alive in all the world
'Cept you and me, yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh

My pretty baby, I never knew such a thrill
It's hard to tell you, because I'm tremblin' still
My pretty baby, I want you all for my own
I think I'm ready, to leave those others alone
No need to ask me, if everything is OK
I've got my answer, the only thing I can say I said yeh yeh

That's what I say, I said yeh yeh
That's what I say, I said yeh yeh
That's what I say, I said yeh yeh.


YOU'RE MOVING OUT TODAY - Carole Bayer Sager &am[; Bette Midler

I stayed out late one night and you moved in
I didn't mind 'cause of the state you were in
May I remind you that it's been a year since then

Today the landlady, she said to me (what did she say?)
You're looney friend just made a pass at me
Perhaps you might enjoy a cottage by the sea

So pack your toys away
Your pretty boys away
Your 45s away
Your alibis away
Your Spanish flies away
Your one-more-tries away
Your old tie-dyes away
You're moving out today

Your nasty habits ain't confined to bed (ha ha ha ha)
The grocer told me what you do with bread (what do you do?)
Why don't you take up with the baker's wife instead of me, fool!

Pack up your rubber duck
I'd like to wish you luck
Your funny cigarettes
Your sixty-one cassettes
Pack all your clothes away
Your rubber hose away
Your old-day-glos away
You're moving out today

Pack up your dirty looks
Your songs that have no hooks
Your stacks of modern screen
Your portrait of the queen

Your mangy cat away
Your baby fat away
You're headed that-a-way
You're moving out today

Pack up your fork and spoon
Please leave my Lorna Doones
Your map of Mozambique
Your water bed that leaks.


YOU ARE THE SUNSHINE OF MY LIFE - Stevie Wonder

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 in my heart

I feel like this is the beginning
Though I loved you for a million years
And 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 in my heart

You must have known that I was lonely
Because you came to my rescue
And I know that this must be 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 in my heart.


YOU DON'T BRING ME FLOWERS - Neil Diamond, Alan Bergman & Marilyn Bergman

You don't bring me flowers
You don't sing me love songs
You hardly talk to me anymore
When you come through the door
At the end of the day

I remember when
You couldn't wait to love me
Used to hate to leave me
Now after lovin' me late at night
When it's good for you
And you're feeling alright
Well you just roll over
And you turn out the light
And you don't bring me flowers anymore

It used to be so natural
To talk about forever
But 'used to be's' don't count anymore
They just lay on the floor
'Til we sweep them away

And baby, I remember
All the things you taught me
I learned how to laugh
And I learned how to cry
Well I learned how to love
Even learned how to lie
You'd think I could learn
How to tell you goodbye
'Cos you don't bring me flowers anymore.


YOU DONT OWN ME - John Madara and David White

You don't own me
I'm not just one of your many toys
You don't own me
Don't say I can't go with other boys

Don't tell me what to do
And don't tell me what to say
Please, when I go out with you
Don't put me on display, 'cause

You don't own me
Don't try to change me in any way
You don't own me
Don't tie me down 'cause I'd never stay

Oh I don't tell you what to say
And I don't tell you what to do
So just let me be myself
That's all I ask of you

I'm young and I love to be young
I'm free yeh and I want to be free
To live my life the way I want
To say and do whatever I please

Don't tell me what to do
And you don't tell me what to say
And please, when I go out with you
Don't put me on display

'Cause I don't I don't tell you what to say
And I, I don't tell you what to do.


Z
