Among My Souvenirs

There's nothing left for me of days that used to be,
There's just a memory among my souvenirs.

Some letters tied in blue, a photograph or two,
I see a rose from you among my souvenirs.

A few more tokens rest
within my treasure chest,
And though they do their best
to give me consolation.

I count them all apart, and as the teardrops start,
I find a broken heart among my souvenirs.

I count them all apart, and as the teardrops start,
I find a broken heart among my souvenirs.


Breakin' In A Brand New Broken Heart

If my friends should ask for me,
Here at home is where I'll be-ee.
There's no one I care to see-ee,
I'm breakin' in a brand new bro-o-ken heart.

Now the heartache has begun.
There's a job that must be do-one.
I'll have no time for havin' fu-un.
I'm breakin' in a brand new bro-o-ken heart.

Aw, leave me alone,and let me cry, cry, cry.
There are tears that must be cried,
Till there's no more tears inside.

Let me take a count of ten.
Then I'll bounce right back agai-ain.
Let me be alone till the-en.
I'm breakin' in a brand new bro-o-ken heart.

I'm breakin' in a brand new bro-o-ken heart.
 

Don't Break The Heart That Loves You

(Don't break the heart that loves you so)

Don't break the heart that loves you,
handle it with care.
Don't break the heart that needs you,
darlin', please be fair.
Why do you flirt and constantly hurt me?
Why do you treat our love so carelessly?

You know I'm jealous of you,
and yet you seem to try
To go out of your way to be unkind.
Sweetheart, I'm begging of you
don't break this heart that loves you,
Don't break this heart of mine.

SPOKEN
Darling, please don't hurt me.
Please, don't make me cry.
I don't know what I'd do 
if you'd ever say goodbye.
Remember I love you so much,
and love's life's greatest joy.
Please don't break my heart
like a child breaks a little toy.

Sweetheart, I'm begging of you
Don't break this heart that loves you.
Don't break this heart of mine.

(Don't break this heart)
 

Fallin'

I got to feelin I'm a fallin,
Like a star up in the blue.
Like I was fallin off Niagra,
In a paddle boat canoe.
I got to feelin I'm a fallin,
And it's all because of you.

Like I was walkin on a tight rope,
Swingin in the breeze.
And though I try to keep my balance,
Well I just weaken in the knees.
I got to feelin I'm a fallin,
Oh lover, help me please.

Like a leaf falls from a branch,
Like a rock slide avalanche,
Like the rain on a stormy day,
I never thought I'd fall this way.

I thought that love could never touch me,
Yeah, I was ridin high.
And then my ivory tower toppled,
And I tumbled from the sky.
I got to feelin I'm a fallin,
And lover, you're the reason why.

Like Goliath when he met his foe,
Like the walls of Jericho,
Like Delilah's holy town,
And Samson tore it down.

I thought that love could never touch me,
Yeah, I was ridin high.
But then my ivory tower toppled,
And I tumbled from the sky.
I got to feelin I'm a fallin,
And you're the reason why.

Barcarole in der Nacht

Barcarole in der Nacht
Du hast viele Traenen mir gebracht

Barcarole in der Nacht
Du hast Traenen mir gebracht
Er heisst Pierrot und es gibt
Eine andere, die er liebt

Blaue Nacht im Sternenschein
Du gingst schnell vorbei
Doch das Lied, es klingt in mir
Und es gibt die Gedanken nicht frei

Barcarole in der Nacht
Du hast Traenen mir gebracht
Er heisst Pierrot und es gibt
Eine andere, die er liebt

Du sagst nur "Auf Wiederseh'n"
Und ich sag "Goodbye"
Doch die Zeit wird weitergeh'n
Und es blühen die Rosen aufs neu

Barcarole in der Nacht
Du hast Traenen mir gebracht
Er heisst Pierrot und es gibt
Eine andere, die er liebt

Bésame Mucho

Bésame, bésame mucho,
cómo si fuera ésta noche la última vez
Bésame mucho, 
que tengo miedo perderte, perderte otra vez

Quiero tenerte muy cerca, 
mirarme en tus ojos, verte junto a mi
Piensa que tal vez mañana yo ya estaré lejos, 
muy lejos de aqui

Oh, bésame mucho, 
cómo si fuera ésta noche la última vez
Bésame mucho, que tengo miedo perderte,
perderte otra vez

If you should leave me,
each little dream would take wing 
and my life would be through
Bésame mucho,
love me forever and make all my dreams come true
Que tengo miedo perderte, perderte otra vez

Chella llá

St'ammore mme teneva 'ncatenato,
Ma ho detto: "Basta!" e mme só' liberato
Mme pare cchiù turchino 'o cielo,
Mme pare cchiù lucente 'o mare...
E 'o core canta p''a felicitá!

Chella llá, chella llá
Mo va dicenno ca mme vò' lassá
Se crede ca mme faccio 'o sango amaro,
Se crede ca 'mpazzisco e po' mme sparo!
Chella llá, chella llá
Nun sape che piacere ca mme fa
Mme ne piglio n'ata cchiù bella
E chi sulla restarrá...
Chella llá, chella llá, chella llá

I have to laugh each time I think about him
He thinks that I could never live without him
He has a very funny notion
That I'm gonna cry an ocean
Because he found himself another dove

Ha, ha, ha - hi, hi, hi
There's more than just one apple on the tree
Gonna find the dreamiest pigeon
And I'll love that turtle dove
Chella llá, chella llá, chella llá

Die Liebe is ein seltsames Spiel
(Everybody's Somebody's Fool)

Die Traenen, die ich schon um dich geweint hab
Sie fuellen einen riesengroßen See
So ehrlich, wie ich's stets mit dir gemeint hab
War niemand, aber du sagst "Bitte geh"

Die Liebe ist ein seltsames Spiel
Sie kommt und geht von einem zum ander'n
Sie nimmt uns alles, doch sie gibt auch viel zuviel
Die Liebe ist ein seltsames Spiel

Wir kannten und wir liebten uns seit Jahren
Die Zukunft schien uns beiden sonnenklar
Fast wären wir zum Standesamt gefahren
Bis alles ploetzlich so veraendert war

Die Liebe ist ein seltsames Spiel
Sie kommt und geht von einem zum ander'n
Sie nimmt uns alles, doch sie gibt auch viel zuviel
Die Liebe ist ein seltsames Spiel

Wie oft hast du die Treue mir geschworen
Und sicher war es so fuer lange Zeit
Doch dann hast du aufs neu dein Herz verloren
Nur darum bin ich wieder einsam heut

Die Liebe ist ein seltsames Spiel
Sie kommt und geht von einem zum ander'n
Sie nimmt uns alles, doch sie gibt auch viel zuviel
Die Liebe ist ein seltsames Spiel.


Mama

When the evening shadows fall,
And the lovely day is through, then
With longing I recall the years I spent with
you.

Mama solo per te la mia canzone vola
Mama sarai con me tu non sarai piu sola

Quanto ti voglio bene
Queste parole d'amore
Che ti sospira il mio cuore
Forse non si usano piu
Ah Mamma
Ma la canzone mia piu bella sei tu
Sei tu la vita e per la vita non ti lascio mai piu...

Safe in the glow of your love.
Sent from the heavens above.
Nothing can ever replace
The warmth of your tender embrace.
Oh, Mama
Until that day when we're together once more,
I live in these memories, until that day when we're together once more.

Cuando Calienta el Sol

Cuando calienta el sol aqui en la playa
Siento tu cuerpo vibrar cerca de mí
Es tu palpitar, es tu cara, es tu pelo
Son tus besos, me estremezco

Cuando calienta el sol

Cuando calienta el sol aquí en la playa
Siento tu cuerpo vibrar cerca de mí.
Es tu palpitar, tu recuerdo, mi locura
Mi delirio, me estremezco

Cuando calienta el sol
Cuando calienta el sol

Love me with all your heart, that's all I want, love
Love me with all your heart or not at all
Just promise me this: That you give me all your kisses
Every summer, every winter, every fall

Cuando calienta el sol
Cuando calienta el sol...




(He's My) Dreamboat

He's my dreamboat, asleep in English class,
He's my dreamboat, mowin' his folk's grass,
He's my dream boat with the dreamy, dreamy eyes.
He's my dreamboat, workin' on his car,
He's my dreamboat, straddlin' his guitar,
He's my dreamboat with the dreamy, dreamy eyes.

Well now,
I dream of dreamboat in everything I do.
And I know that darlin' dreamboat
Dreams of me too.

He's my dreamboat, coffee in a Dixie cup,
Darling dreamboat, that crazy, silly nut,
He's my dreamboat with the dreamy, dreamy eyes.

Yes, he's my dreamboat, coffeein a Dixie cup,
Darlin dreamboat, that crazy, silly nut,
He's my dreamboat with the dreamy, dreamy eyes.

Don't Ever Leave Me

Baby, Baby - I've been waiting
For somebody to love just me.
I'm so happy now that I found you
I'll stand by you till eternity.

Don't ever leave me, don't ever let me go.
I wouldn't know what to do,
I wouldn't know where to go.
Don't ever leave me, I'm giving you my heart,
And it would break in two if we should ever part.

Baby, tell me how much you love me,
And I have something to say to you.
I will always make you happy,
And I promise that I will be true.

Don't ever leave me, don't ever let me go.
I wouldn't know what to do,
I wouldn't know where to go.
Don't ever leave me, I'm giving you my heart,
And it would break in two if we should ever part.

Don't ever leave me, don't ever let me go.
I wouldn't know what to do,
I wouldn't know where to go.
Don't ever leave me, I'm giving you my heart,
And it would break in two if we should ever part.

Baby, Baby - don't ever leave me
Don't ever leave me...



Follow The Boys

I'll follow the boys wherever they go.
I'll follow the boys 'cause in my heart I know,
I know that somewhere, somewhere along the way,
I'll find my love, my own true love, some day.

And there'll be no place too far, no ocean too wide.
Wherever he goes I'll be right by his side.
I'll follow the boys, and wait until the time,
Till that boy that I'm following is mine.

Then there'll be no place too far, no ocean too wide.
Wherever he goes, I'll be right by his side.
So I'll follow the boys, and wait until the time,
Till that wonderful boy that I'm following is mine.

Everybody's Somebody's Fool

The tears I cry for you, could fill an ocean.
But you don't care how many tears I cry.
And though you only lead me on and hurt me,
I couldn't bring myself to say goodbye.

Cause everybody's somebody's fool.
Everybody's somebody's plaything.
And there are no exceptions to the rule.
Yes, everybody's somebody's fool.

I told myself it's best that I forget you.
Though I'm a fool at least I know the score.
Yet darlin' I'd be twice as blue without you.
It hurts but I come runnin' back for more.

Cause everybody's somebody's fool.
Everybody's somebody's plaything.
And there are no exceptions to the rule.
Yes, everybody's somebody's fool.

Someday you'll find someone you really care for.
And if her love should prove to be untrue.
You'll know how much this heart of mine is breaking.
You'll cry for her the way i've cried for you.

Yes, everybody's somebody's fool.
Everybody's somebody's plaything.
And there are no exceptions to the rule.
Yes, everybody's somebody's fool.

For Mama

Ave Maria

She said: "My daughter, I beg of you.
I have a with that must come true.
The last thing you can do for Mama.
Please promise me that you will stay,
And take my place while I'm away,
And give the children love each day".
I had to cry, what could I say?

How hard I tried to find the words.
I prayed she wouldn't see my cry.
So much to say that should be heard,
But only time to say goodbye to Mama

They say in time that you'll forget.
Yet still today my eyes are wet.
I tell myself to smile for Mama.
Now soon there'll be another spring,
And I will start remembering
The way she loved to hear me sing
Her favorite song, "Ave Maria"

Ave Maria

The children have all grown up now.
I kept my promise to Mama.
I cannot guide them anymore.
I've done my best all for Mama.

Ave Maria

But still it seems so very small
For all she did for me.

Frankie

(spoken): Frankie, where ever you are, I love you.

Though you've found a new love, 
I still miss you so.
I just can't forget you, 
But you'll never know.
Frankie, my darling, 
I'll never let you see me cry.

Once I was your sweetheart, 
now I'm just a friend.
Once you really loved me, 
now I just pretend.
Frankie, my darling, 
I'll never let you see me cry. 

Oh, Frankie, 
I'd rather hide these teardrops.
Deep down inside I'm crying, 
But you'll never see.
I'd rather cry than have you pity me.

Though my nights are lonely 
Since we've been apart, 
I'll always keep this secret 
Deep within my heart. 
Frankie, my darling, 
I'll never let you see me cry.

(spoken): Frankie, where ever you are, I love you.

Ho Bisogno di Vederti

Ho bisogno di vederti
Di restare insieme a te
Di abbracciarti e di sentire
Le tue mani tra le mie mani

Io ti penso sempre
Sempre, più di sempre
Io non voglio altro
Ho bisogno di vederti

Di parlarti, di sentirti
Sempre qui vicino a me
Di guardarti e di dirti
Quello che sei per me

Io ti penso sempre
Sempre, più di sempre
Io non voglio altro
Non c'è niente senza di te

Sempre, più di sempre
Io ti voglio bene
Non c'è niente senza di te

Ho bisogno di vederti
Di sentire la tua voce
Di abbracciarti e di averti
Sempre vicino a me

Sempre vicino a me

High Noon

Spoken: (This is the story of two men.
One, an ex-convict
The other, a man of honour.
The ex-convict vowed while in prison
To kill the man of honour.
"I can't be a coward"
He says to his fair-haired beauty.)

Do not forsake me, oh my Darlin'
On this our wedding day.
Do not forsake me, oh my Darlin'
Wait, wait along.

I do not know what fate awaits me.
I only know I must be brave,
And I must face a man who hates me
Or lie a coward, a craven coward
Or lie a coward in my grave.

Oh, to be torn 'twixt love and duty.
S'posin' I lose my fair-haired beauty.
Look at that big hand move along,
Nearin' High Noon.

He made a vow while in state's prison.
Vowed it would be my life or his 'n,
I'm not a afraid of death, but oh
What will I do if you leave me?

Do not forsake me, oh my Darlin'
You made that promise as a bride.
Do not forsake me, oh my Darlin'
Although you're grieving,
Don't think of leaving,
Now that I need you by my side.

Jedes Boot Hat Seinen Hafen

Jedes Boot hat seinen Hafen
Jedes Herz hat sein zuhaus
Seit ich weiß, dass ich zu dir gehoere
Sieht die Welt fuer mich ganz anders aus

Wenn bunte Bänder wieder im Suedwind weh'n
Feiern wir beide unser Wiederseh'n

Jedes Boot hat seinen Hafen
Jedes Herz hat sein zuhaus
Seit ich weiß, dass ich zu dir gehoere
Sieht die Welt fuer mich ganz anders aus

Wenn bunte Lichter in allen Gassen gluehn
Singt uns die Liebe tausend Melodien

Jedes Boot hat seinen Hafen
Jedes Herz hat sein zuhaus
Seit ich weiß, dass ich zu dir gehoere
Sieht die Welt fuer mich ganz anders aus

Seit ich weiß, dass ich zu dir gehoere
Sieht die Welt fuer mich ganz anders aus

Lili Marleen
(German Version)

Vor der Kaserne, vor dem großen Tor
Stand eine Laterne und steht sie noch davor
So woll'n wir da uns wiedersehn
Bei der Laterne woll'n wir steh'n
Wie einst, Lili Marleen
Wie einst, Lili Marleen

Unsrer beiden Schatten sah'n wie einer aus
Dass wir so lieb uns hatten, das sah man gleich daraus
Und alle Leute soll'n es seh'n
Wenn wir bei der Laterne steh'n
Wie einst, Lili Marleen
Wie einst, Lili Marleen

Aus dem stillen Raume, aus der Erde Grund
Hebt mich wie im Traume dein verliebter Mund
Wenn sich die spaeten Nebel dreh'n
Werd' ich bei der Laterne steh'n
Wie einst, Lili Marleen
Wie einst, Lili Marleen

Lipstick On Your Collar

(yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
(yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

When you left me all alone at the record hop,
Told me you were goin’ out for a soda pop.
You were gone for quite a while, half an hour or more.
You came back and man oh man this is what I saw..

Lipstick on you collar, told a tale on you.
Lipstick on you collar, said you were untrue.
Bet your bottom dollar, you and I are through
Cause, lipstick on you collar told a tale on you, yeah.

You said it belonged to me. Made me stop and think.
Then I noticed yours was red, mine was baby pink.
Who walked in but Mary Jane, lipstick all a mess.
Were you smoochin’ my best friend, yes, he answered, yes.

Lipstick on you collar, told a tale on you.
Lipstick on you collar, said you were untrue.
Bet your bottom dollar, you and I are through
Cause, lipstick on you collar told a tale on you, boy,

Told a tale on you, man.
Told a tale on you, yeah.

Te quiero besar

Malagueña de ojos negros

Por tu, solo tu querer

Many Tears Ago

They said your cheating heart will make me cry,
And like a fool I gave it a try.
I should've listened when they told me so,
Many many tears ago.

But I could not believe the things they said,
Because my heart over ruled my head.
I should've listened when they told me so,
Many many tears ago.

I laughed out loud when they told me
That you had someone else.
But your cheating heart has shown me
That I was only foolin' myself.

I know it's too late for a brand new start,
For I have cried you out of my heart.
I should've listened when they told me so,
Many many tears ago.

I laughed out loud when they told me
That you had someone else,
But your cheating heart has shown me
That I was foolin myself.

I know it's too late for a brand new start,
For I have cried you out of my heart.
I should've listened when they told me so (whistle)
I should've listened when they told me so,
Many many tears ago.

Milord

Allez venez, Milord - vous asseoir à ma table
Il fait si froid dehors - ici, c'est confortable
Laissez-vous faire, Milord, et prenez bien vos aises
Vos peines sur mon coeur et vos pieds sur une chaise
Je vous connais, Milord, vous ne m'avez jamais vue
Je ne suis qu'une fille du port, une ombre de la rue

Come on, get wise, Milord. Hher lips tell lies, Milord.
The girl that you adored has found some other guy.
She just got bored, Milord.  Now you're ignored, Milord.
Deep down inside your pride won't let you say goodbye.
So let her go, Milord,  Relax, be smart.
'Cause you know she'll only break your heart.

Come on get mad, Milord.  Life's not so bad, Milord.
The charms of other arms can make your heart forget.
Don't count the cost, Milord. Let her get lost, Milord.
One memory can beat a lifetime of regret.
Come on get hip, Milord, and let life rest Milord.
Be sure there's plenty more of lovin' to be done.
There's chicks to meet, Milord, with lips so sweet, Milord,
And hearts to make and break before the race is run.
So hit the town, Milord, come on and be my guest.
We'll turn it upside down and may devil take the rest.
Upside down and may devil take the rest.
Upside down and may devil take the rest.

Mon Coeur Est Un Violon

Mon coeur est un violon
Sur lequel ton archet joue
Et qui vibre tout du long
Appuyé contre ta joue
Tantôt l'air est vif et gai
Comme un refrain de folie
Tantôt le son fatigué
Traîne avec mélancolie

Dans la nuit qui s'achève
Mon coeur est plein de toi
La musique est un rêve
Qui vibre sous tes doigts
Sous tes doigts la caresse
Rend mon désir si fort
Qu'il va jusqu'à l'ivresse
Et meurt à la fin de l'accord

Violins are in my Heart
And the Music seems to say
"Just as long as we're in love
Violins will always play"

Mon coeur est un violon
Sur lequel ton archet joue

My Best Friend Barbara

Spoken: (I told my best friend Barbara
what a great guy Jimmy was.
Who ever thought the day would come when Jimmy would be hers.)

My best friend Barbara
told me Jimmy's no good,
And like a fool I listened to her
The way she knew I would.
My best friend Barbara.

My best friend Barbara
said he cheats and he lies.
She couldn't wait for me to break up with him.
Now Jimmy's Barbara's guy.
My best friend Barbara.

Look at her - hangin' on his arm
Tryin' very hard to please.
There's a moral to the story:
With friends like her,
Who needs enemies?

My best friend Barbara,
she's going steady with Jim,
And every single night I sit up and cry
While Barbara's kissin' him.
My best friend Barbara.

Look at her - hangin' on his arm
Tryin' very hard to please.
There's a moral to the story:
With friends like her,
Who needs enemies?

My best friend Barbara,
she's going steady with Jim,
And every single night I sit up and cry
While Barbara's kissin' him.
My best friend Barbara.

And if it takes me forever and a day,
I'm gonna steal my Jimmy away from
My best friend Barbara.

Oh, her lipstick's all a mess.
She thinks that she's the best.
She's walkin' down the street in a tight yellow dress.
My best friend Barbara.


Teddy

There's a guy I want you to know 
He's the guy I love so
He's my Teddy, oh Teddy 
I, I love you so 

Oh I remember the day that we met 
I'd be so silly to ever forget 
Oh Teddy, Aw Teddy 
I, I love him so 

He is so shy, it doesn't matter 
You're my guy can't you see 
That I want you, I need you 
I love you I do 
And you belong to me 

I'll always love you 
The rest of my life 
We could get married 
I'd be your wife 
Wo-o-o Teddy, aw Teddy 
I, I love you so 
 

My Happiness

Evening shadows make me blue,
When each weary day is through.
How I long to be with you, my happiness.

Every day I reminisce,
Dreaming of your tender kiss.
Always thinking how I miss, my happiness.

A million years it seems
Have gone by since we shared our dreams.
But I’ll hold you again,
There’ll be no blue memories then.

Whether skies are gray or blue,
Any place on earth will do.
Just as long as I’m with you, my happiness.

Whether skies are gray or blue,
Any place on earth will do.
Just as long as I’m with you, my happiness.


Robot Man

I want a Robot Man to hold me tight 
One that I can count on every single night 
He wouldn't run around like other guys 
I wouldn't have to listen to his alibis 

A little Robot Man to call my own 
I'd never have to worry that he wouldn't phone 
He wouldn't dance with anyone but me 
I'd just have to wind him with my Robot key 

I'd have a steady date seven nights a week 
And we would never fight cause it would be impossible for him to speak 

Don't want no real love boy to give me grief 
Always make me cry into my handkerchief 
So it's a Robot Man I'm dreamin' of 
Because I can depend upon a Robot Love 

I'd have a steady date seven nights a week 
And we would never fight cause it would be impossible for him to speak 

Don't want no real love boy to give me grief 
Always make me cry into my handkerchief 
So it's a Robot Man I'm dreamin' of 
Because I can depend upon a Robot Love 
Because I can depend upon a Robot Love 
Because I can...


Tango Itliano

Un Tano Italiano, un dolce Tango 
Ho sentito una notte suonar 
Sotto un cielo lontano 

Quel Tango Italiano, this is the Tango 
That was born when our love had its start 
On the night that I found you 

In quel momento sull'ali del vento avrei voluto andar 
E dal mio amore il mio cuore sconteto voleva ritornar 

Un Tango Italiano, un dolce Tango 
Ha portato un ricchiamo d'Amor 
Al mio stanco e nostalgico cuor 
E mi hai fatto per sempre tornar 
Dal mio amore Italiano 

You were so warm and so near 
And my heart climbed a stairway to the stars 

Un Tango Italiano, un dolce Tango 
Ha portato un ricchiamo d'Amor 
Al mio stanco e nostalgico cuor 
E mi hai fatto per sempre tornar 
Dal mio amore Italiano




 

Pretty Little Baby

Pretty little baby, (Yah, yah)
Pretty little baby, (Yah, yah)

Pretty little baby, you say that maybe,
You'll be thinkin' of me, And try to love me.
Pretty little baby,
I'm hoping that you do-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo!

You can ask the flowers, I sit for hours,
Tellin' all the bluebirds, the "bill and coo" birds.
Pretty little baby,
I'm so in love with you-oo-oo-oo-oo!

(chorus)
Now is just the time,
While both of us are young,
"Puppy love" must have it's day-ay-ay.
Don'tcha know it's much more fun to love
While the heart is young and gay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay!

Meet me at the car hop,
Or at the pop shop.
Meet me in the moonlight,
Or in the daylight.
Pretty little baby,
I'm so in love with you-oo-oo-oo-oo!

( instrumental bridge; repeat chorus)
Pretty little baby,
I said, "Pretty little baby",
Oh, now, pretty little baby....(fade out)

Al Di La

Al di la; del bene piu prezioso, 
ci sei tu. 
Al di la; 
del sogno piu ambizoso, 
ci sei tu.

Al di la
della cose piu belle
Al di la
della stelle

Ci sei tu
Al di la
Ci sei tu per me
per me
soltanto per me.

Al di la
means you are far above me, very far.

Every star will light the way above me
to where you are.

Just to measure your worth
I'd move heaven and earth
To be near you.

Your my life, you're my love
you're my own al di la

la da da da
la da da da
la di da da

Al di la; 
della volta infinita, 
al di la della vita. 
Ci Sei tu, 
al di la, 
ci sei tu per me.

Quiéreme Mucho

Quiéreme mucho, dulce amor mío
Que amante siempre te adoraré
Que con tus besos y tus caricias 
Mis sufrimientos acallaré

Cuando se quiere, de veras
Como te quiero yo a tí
Es imposible mi cielo
Tan separados vivir

Cuando se quiere, de vera
Como te quiero yo a tí
Es imposible mi cielo
Tan separados vivir 
Tan separados vivir

I've never loved anyone the way I love you
How could I when I was born to be just yours

Second Hand Love

They tell me that there's someone else
you really, truly, love,
And even when we kiss, that she's the one
you're thinking of.

I guess it's true, cause once or twice, 
you called me by her name.
I need you so, but now I know, 
that you don't feel the same.

It's all over town, you put me down.
A second-hand love, a second-hand love.

Though late at night, I sit alone and count 
the tears that fall.
I'd rather have this kind of love, then not
see you at all.

My friends all say, I'm better off 
if we should drift apart.
But everyday, I hope and pray,
I'll be first in your heart.

It's all over town, you put me down.
I'm a second-hand love, a second-hand love.
Just a second-hand love, a second-hand love.

Sola Piu Che Mai

Sola più che mai in una notte
Che non mi dirà e avrò un domani
E che solo lei decidere potrà.

Solo più che mai, senza ricordi
Che non trovo più nel mio passato,
Un passato che più niente mi darà.

Cerco intorno a me un nuovo volto
Che vorrei potesse dir
Parole nuove che mi portino così,
Dove io vorrei
In un mondo che non c'è
Ma è vissuto sempre in me.

Son solo più che mai in una notte
Che non mi dirà se avrò un domani
E che solo lui di me deciderà.

Cerco intorno a me un nuovo volto
Che vorrei potesse dir
Parole nuove che mi portino così,
Dove io vorrei
In quel mondo che non c'è
Ma è vissuto sempre in me.

Son solo più che mai senza ricordi
Che non trovo più nel mio passato,
Un passato che è triste quanto me
È triste quanto me.

Sólamente una Vez

Sólamente una vez amé en la vida
Sólamente una vez y nada más
Una vez nada más en mi huerto brilló la esperanza
La esperanza que alumbra el camino de mi soledad

Una vez nada más se entrega el alma
Con la dulce y total renunciación
Una vez nada más en mi huerto brilló la esperanza
La esperanza que alumbra el camino de mi soledad

It was a moment like this, do you remember
And your eyes threw a kiss when they met mine
Now we own all the stars and a million guitars are still playing
Darling, you are the song and you always belong to my heart.


I Was Such A Fool

I was such a fool to fall in love with you, 
I was such a fool to think you loved me,too, 
"Cause suddenly something happened, 
Your love flickered and died, 
But mine...mine kept right on burning, 
Then burst into a tide, Impossible to hide, 
Oh, I was such a fool to think that you were mine, 
Here's to your new love, 
Let's drink a toast of sparkling wine, 
Oh, you taught me a lesson, it's true, 
But wait 'til it happens to you,Oh, 
I was such a fool to fall in love with you, 
Oh ho you know,You taught me a lesson, it's true, 
But wait 'til it happens to you,
I was such a fool to fall in love with you! 
 

Stupid Cupid

Stupid Cupid you're a real mean guy!
I'd like to clip your wings so you can't fly!
I'm in love and it's a crying shame,
And I know that you're the one to blame.
Hey hey, set me free.
Stupid Cupid stop picking on me!

I can't do my homework and I can't think straight.
I meet him every morning 'bout a half past eight.
I'm acting like a lovesick fool.
He's even got me carrying his books to school!
Hey hey, set me free.
Stupid Cupid stop picking on me!

You mixed me up but good right from the very start.
Hey, go play Robin Hood with somebody else's heart.

You got me jumping like a crazy clown.
And I don't feature what you're putting down.
Since I kissed his loving lips of wine,
The thing that bothers me is that I like it fine.
Hey hey, set me free.
Stupid Cupid stop picking on me!

You got me jumping like a crazy clown.
And I don't feature what you're putting down.

Summertime In Venice

I dream of the summertime,
Of Venice and the summertime.
I see the cafes, the sunlit days with you, my love

The antique shop where we'd stop for a souvenir
The bridge, the boats below, the blue above.

I dream all the winter long 
Of mandolins that played our song.
The dream is so real I almost feel your lips on mine.
And though I know we have to be an ocean apart,
There's Venice and you, and summertime, deep in my heart.

Un so-gno ro-man-ti-co,
Ve-ne-zia e il so-le splen-di-do!
Do-vun-que sa-ro, no li po-tro di-men-ti-car!

Di que-sta e-sta-te sul mar non po-tran mo-rir
In me, i dol-ce ba-ci ed I so-pir.

Un so-gno ro-man-ti-co
Ve-ne-zia e il so-le splen-di-do!
Di mil-le can-zon l'e-co lon-ta-na por-te-ro.
Que-sta la-gu-na ad-dor-men-ta-ta, ri-cor-de-ro
Che par-la al mio cuor so-lo d'amor, sem-pre d'amor.

The Wedding Cake

Don't be troubled 'bout me cause I'm tired
From workin' 'round the house
When day is done.

Don't think you failed me cause you can't afford
That dishwasher to make my life more fun.

You know, the measure of a man is
Much more than just the money he can make.

And every woman knows a lot of joy and tears
Come with the wedding cake.

The wedding cake is not all icing,
And love and tender whispers in the dark.

One slice is concern for all your dreams prayed
They won't come true and break your heart.

Another slice is feedin' kids and wipin' noses,
Cryin' when the doorbell rings and there are roses.

Every woman knows a lot of give and take
Comes with the wedding cake.

It's facin' shadows of the future,
Prayin' they will fall away as we walk toward them, searchin' for the sun

And it's long and anxious hours with the wolf at the door.
Hugs and kisses when, at last, we see the dawn

So when the hands of time trace tellin' lines upon our face,
And lace our hair with strands of gray.
We laugh and say for all who will partake,
It all comes with the wedding cake.

Yes, for all who will partake,
It all comes with the wedding cake.
Yes, for all who will partake,
It all comes with the wedding cake.

Vacation

V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N in the summer sun.

Put away the books, we're out of school.
The weather's warm but we'll play it cool.
We're on vacation, havin' lots of fun.
V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N in the summer sun.

We're gonna grab a bite at the pizza stand,
Write love letters in the sand.
We're on vacation, and the world is ours.
V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N under summer stars.

Yeah, we'll hop in a jalopy to a drive-in movie, and never look at the show.
We're gonna hug and kiss, just like this, and I can't wait to go, go, go!

We're gonna mashed potato to a jukebox tune,
Park your car 'neath an August moon.
We're on vacation till the start of the fall.

V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N, we're gonna have a ball, go!!

sax interlude

V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N, gonna have a ball.

Uh-huh, we'll hop in a jalopy to a drive-in movie, and never look at the show.
We're gonna hug and kiss, just like this, and I can't wait to go, go, go!

We're gonna mashed potato to a jukebox tune,

Where The Boys Are

Where the boys are, someone waits for me.
A smilin' face, a warm embrace, two arms to hold me tenderly.

Where the boys are, my true love will be.
He's walkin' down some street in town, and I know he's lookin' there for me.

In the crowd of a million people, I'll find my valentine.
And then I'll climb to the highest steeple, and tell the world he's mine.

Till he holds me, I'll wait impatiently.
Where the boys are, where the boys are,
Where the boys are, someone waits for me.

Till he holds me, I'll wait impatiently.
Where the boys are, where the boys are,
Where the boys are, someone waits for me.




Your Other Love

Your other love
Says she will be
Yours faithfully
But she'll deceive you, She'll leave you,
And break your hea-art.

I offer you
Love that is true
Darling, you'll find
This love of mine is deeper and stronger than your other love.

She wants to play
Just for today
I will be yours
Forever more
I'll love you so much more than your other love,
Your other love,
Your other love,
Your other love,
FADE
Your other love

White Cliffs of Dover

There will be blue birds over
The white cliffs of dover
Tomorrow just you wait, and see.

There'll be love and laughter
and peace ever after
Tomorrow just you wait, and see.

The sheperd will tend his sheep.
The valley will blue again,
and here we will go to sleep
in his arms it will brue again.

There will be blue birds over
The white cliffs of dover
Tomorrow just you wait, and see.

There will be blue birds over
The white cliffs of dover
Tomorrow just wait, and see.


I'm Gonna Be Warm This Winter

We met at a ski lodge, and we fell in love.

Right by a fireplace, we shared our first embrace,
And then inside my heart, I felt a fire start.
It's gonna snow outside, the weather will be cold,
But I'm gonna be warm this winter! Uh-huh-huh!

Each time your lips touch mine, they taste like sparkling wine.
I feel so warm a glow, just 'cause I love you so.
It's cozy in your arms, I'm yours to have and to hold,
And I'm gonna be warm this winter!

Ice skating on a frozen lake.
Sleigh-riding down a mountainside.
Roasting popcorn, dancing till the dawn,
That was how I knew our love was born-born-born-born.

It's just like make-believe, each night is New Year's Eve.
Each day is Christmas Day, you make me feel this way.
It's gonna snow outside, the weather will be cold,
But I'm gonna be warm this winter!

--- Instrumental ---

It's gonna snow outside, the weather will be cold,
But I'm gonna be warm this winter!
Whoa, whoa, whoa, honey, make me warm this winter!
Mmmm, baby, make me warm this winter!

Whoa, whoa, whoa, I'll be warm this winter!...
 

Who's Sorry Now?

Who's sorry now?
Who's sorry now?
Who's heart is aching for breaking each vow?
Who's sad and blue?
Who's crying too?
Just like I cried over you.

Right to the end,
Just like a friend.
I tried to warn you somehow.
You had your way,
Now you must pay.
I'm glad that you're sorry now.

Right to the end,
Just like a friend.

You had your way,
Now you must pay.
I'm glad that you're sorry now.

When The Boys Meet The Girls

When the boys meet the girls,
I'll know my love when I see him,
I'll recognize the look in his eyes,
That tells me this must be him.

When the boys meet the girls,
I'll know his face in a moment,
And in the space of a moment,
We'll fall in love.

There in the crowd, he'll be waiting,
Heaven will reach out to me,
There in his arms, I'll discover,
The wonderland that lovers only see.

'Til the day that we meet,
I'll play the part of a dreamer,
Dreamin' my favorite dream,
Again and again,
That moment when,
The boys meet the girls.


Tango Italiano

Un Tano Italiano, un dolce Tango 
Ho sentito una notte suonar 
Sotto un cielo lontano 

Quel Tango Italiano, this is the Tango 
That was born when our love had its start 
On the night that I found you 

In quel momento sull'ali del vento avrei voluto andar 
E dal mio amore il mio cuore sconteto voleva ritornar 

Un Tango Italiano, un dolce Tango 
Ha portato un ricchiamo d'Amor 
Al mio stanco e nostalgico cuor 
E mi hai fatto per sempre tornar 
Dal mio amore Italiano 

You were so warm and so near 
And my heart climbed a stairway to the stars 

Un Tango Italiano, un dolce Tango 
Ha portato un ricchiamo d'Amor 
Al mio stanco e nostalgico cuor 
E mi hai fatto per sempre tornar 
Dal mio amore Italiano

Zingara

I must find him somehow, Zingara.
So I beg you right now, Zingara.
Gypsy do the cards say he'll be coming my way?
If that is so I'll make him mine,
I love him.

You're so wise you've seen it all before.
And my eyes must tell you even more.
Take away my sorrows, no more sad tommorows.
Tell me Gypsy, what's the future say?

He is out there somewhere in the crowd,
But I can't see his face,
And every place is lonely.

Prendi questa mano...zingara.
Dimmi pure che destino avrò,
Parla del mio amore
Io non ho paura
Solo questo conta
Ormai per me.

He is out there somewhere in the crowd,
But I can't see his face,
And every place is lonley.

Tell me all about him, Zingara.
I'm no good without him, Zingara.
I'm not really living,
Till my heart I'm giving.
So I ask you, where's someone to love.

Tell me Gypsy,
Zingara

My Heart Cries For You

My Darling, my heart cries for you, sighs for you, just dies for you 
My arms long for you - please come back to me 

An unimportant quarrel is what we had 
We have to learn to live with the good and bad 
To throw away a lifetime is all too sad 
This loneliness is driving me mad 

My heart cries for you, sighs for you, just dies for you 
My arms long for you - please come back to me 

Forgetting you is one thing I just can't do 
The memories keep coming the whole night through 
I'm not too proud to tell you I still love you 
I'm hoping that you feel that way, too 

My heart cries for you, sighs for you, just dies for you 
My arms long for you - please come back to me 

Please come back to me
