I Guess I'll Have To Change My Plans

Howard Dietz / Arthur Schwartz
I guess I'll have to change my plan I should have realized there'd be another man I overlooked that point completely Until the big affair began Before I knew where I was at I found myself upon the shelf and that was that I tried to reach the moon but when I got there All that I could get was the air My feet are back upon the ground I lost the one girl I'd found Before I knew where I was at I found myself upon the shelf and that was that I tried to reach the moon but when I got there All that I could get was the air My feet are back upon the ground I lost the one girl The one girl I'd found My boiling point is much too low For me to try to be a fly Lothario



September Of My Years

Sammy Cahn / Jimmy Van Heusen
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 wandering 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



I Could Have Told You

Carl Sigman / Jimmy Van Heusen
I could have told you She'd hurt you She'd you love you a while Then desert you If only you asked I could have told you so I could have saved you Some crying Yes, I could have told you she's lying But you were in love And didn't want to know I hear her now As I toss and turn and try to sleep I hear her now Making promises she'll never keep And soon, it's over and done with She'll find someone new to have fun with Through all of my tears I could have told you so I hear her now As I toss and turn and try to sleep I hear her now Making promises she'll never keep And soon, it's over and done with She'll find someone new to have fun with Through all of my tears I could have told you so



Once Upon A Time

Lee Adams / Charles Strouse
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 Once upon a time Never comes again



Stormy Weather

Ted Koehler / music Harold Arlen
Don't know why Theres no sun up in the sky Stormy weather Since my gal and I Ain't together Keeps raining 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 If she stays away that old rocking chair's gonna get me All I do is pray the Lord above is gonna let me Walk in the sun once more Can't go on Everything I have is gone Stormy weather Since my gal and I Ain't together Keeps raining all the time Keeps raining all the time Backing singers: When she went away The blues walked in and met me If he stays away that old rocking chair will 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 have is gone Stormy weather Since my gal and I Ain't together Keeps raining all the time The time Keeps raining all the time



This Nearly Was Mine

Oscar Hammerstein II / Richard Rogers
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



That Old Feeling

Lew Brown / Sammy Fain
I saw you last night and got that old feeling When you came in sight, I got that old feeling The moment that you danced by, I felt a thrill And when you caught my eye, my heart stood still Once again I seemed to feel that old yearning Then I knew the spark of love was still burning There'll be no new romance for me, it's foolish to start 'Cause that old feeling is still in my heart There'll be no new romance for me, it's foolish to start 'Cause that old feeling is still in my heart



It Gets Lonely Early

Sammy Cahn / Jimmy Van Heusen
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? Every 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 Every single lovely day



My One And Only Love

Robert Mellin / Guy Wood
The very thought of you makes my heart sing Like an April breeze on the wings of spring And you appear in all your splendor My one and only love The shadows fall and spread their mystic charms In the hush of night while you're in my arms I feel your lips so warm and tender My one and only love The touch of your hand is like heaven A heaven that I've never known And the blush on your cheek whenever I speak Tells me that you are my own You fill my eager heart with such desire Every kiss you give sets my soul on fire I give myself in sweet surrender My one and only love The touch of your hand is like heaven A heaven that I've never known And the blush on your cheek whenever I speak Tells me that you are my own You fill my eager heart with such desire Every kiss you give sets my soul on fire I give myself in sweet surrender My one and only love



Trade Winds

Charles Tobias / Cliff Friend
Here I stand looking, looking around me While all around me what do I see Unhappy faces behind a painted smile Heartache and loneliness dressed up in modern style Unhappy people living in sin and shame Reflections of myself, life is no easy game And we're caught in the trade winds The trade winds of our time Here I stand looking, looking around me While all around me what do I see Young girls who'll soon become Streetwalkers in the night Young boys, the restless breed Looking for a fight Children both rich and poor They're searching for the truth And if they don't find it God help tomorrow's youth We're caught in the trade winds The trade winds of our time Trade winds are blowing, blowing around me While all around me what do I see Hatred and jealousy Brotherhood is dying Love is the answer Nobody's buying Good people turning bad Some don't but they are few The winds are blowing The choice is all up to you We're caught in the trade winds The trade winds of our time Yes we're caught up in the trade winds The trade winds of our time And we are riding on the trade winds The trade wind of our time We're caught up Caught up in the trade winds, the trade winds of our time We are riding Riding on the trade wings, trade winds of our time We're caught up Caught up on the trade winds, the trade winds of our time And we're riding Riding on the trade wings, trade winds of our time We are riding, yes we're riding Trade wings of our time We're caught up Caught up in the trade winds, trade winds of our time We are riding We're riding on the trade wings, trade winds of our time And we're caught up In the trade winds, trade winds of our time We are riding Riding on the trade wings, the trade winds of our time



Braggin'

Henry Manners Katzman / Jimmy Shirl / Robert Marko
Braggin' Wastin' all your time just braggin' When ya' should be busy Plowin' and a'plantin' You stand there a'rantin' Get no harvest to your heart Braggin' You ain't got no cause for braggin' When your barn needs mendin' And your lawn needs mowin' How come you're a crowin' Like a no-good rooster at dawn Braggin' 'bout your fishin' 'Bout your horseshoe pitchin' Bet you always keep the score Talkin' 'bout your meddle That's the kind they peddle Down at the five and ten store Braggin' Folks ain't got no use for braggin' If your fields are greener Folks will hear about it You don't have to shout it Fields were greener 'fore you were born



As Time Goes By

Herman Hupfeld
You must remember this A kiss is still a kiss A sigh is still just a sigh The fundamental things apply As time goes by And when two lovers woo They still say "I love you" On that you can rely No matter what the future brings As time goes by Moonlight and love songs never out of date Hearts full of passion, jealousy, and hate Woman needs man and man must have his mate That no one can deny It's still the same old story A fight for love and glory A case of do or die The world will always welcome lovers As time goes by



Imagination

Jimmy Van Heusen / Johnny Burke
Imagination is funny It makes a cloudy day sunny It 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 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



How Deep Is The Ocean?

Irving Berlin
How much do I love you? I'll tell you no lie How deep is the ocean? How high is the sky? How many times a day do I think of you? How many roses are sprinkled with dew? How far would I travel To be where you are? How far is the journey From here to a star? And if I ever lost you, how much would I cry? How deep is the ocean? How high is the sky? How far would I travel To be where you are? How far is the journey From here to a star? And if I ever lost you, how much would I cry? How deep is the ocean? How high is the sky? How high is the sky?



PS I Love You

Gordon Jenkins / Johnny Mercer
Dear, I thought I'd drop a line The weather's cool. The folks are fine I'm in bed each night at nine PS I love you Yesterday we had some rain But all in all I can't complain Was it dusty on the train? PS I love you Write to the Browns just as soon as you're able They came around to call I burned a hole in the dining room table And let me see, I guess that's all Nothin' else for me to say And so I'll close. Oh, by the way Everybody's thinkin' of you PS I love you I do my best to obey all your wishes I put a sign up. Think Now I got to buy us a new set of dishes Or wash the ones that have piled in the sink Nothing else to tell you, dear Except, each day feels like a year Every night I'm dreamin' of you PS I love you PS I love you



The Best Is Yet To Come

Cy Coleman / Carolyn Leigh
Out of the tree of life I just picked me a plum You came along and everything started to hum Still it's a real good bet the best is yet to come The best is yet to come and, babe, won't it be fine? You think you've seen the sun but you ain't seen it shine Wait till the warm-up's underway Wait till our lips have met 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? The 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're gonna taste of 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 you ain't left the ground Wait till you're locked in my embrace Wait till I draw you near 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 Out of the tree of life I just picked me a plum You came along and everything started to hum



But Beautiful

Jimmy Van Heusen / Johnny Burke
Love is funny or it's sad Or it's quiet or it's mad It's a good thing or it's bad But beautiful Beautiful to take a chance and if you fall, you fall And I'm thinking I wouldn't mind at all Love is tearful or it's gay It's a problem or it's play It's a heartache either way But beautiful And I'm thinking if you were mine, I'd never let you go And that would be but beautiful, I know Love is tearful or it's gay It's a problem or it's play It's a heartache either way But it's beautiful And I'm thinking if you were mine, I'd never let you go And that would be but beautiful, I know



Here's That Rainy Day

Jimmy Van Heusen / Johnny Burke
Maybe I should have saved those leftover dreams Funny but here's that rainy day Here's that rainy day they told me about And I laughed at the thought That it might turn out this way Where is that worn out wish that I threw aside After it brought my love so near Funny how love becomes a cold rainy day Funny that rainy day is here It's funny how love becomes a cold rainy day Funny that rainy day is here



Where Is The One?

Alec Wilder / Edwin Finckel
Where is the one Who'll end the search I'm making Where is the one Who'll change my dream to waking Behind some far off secret door There's my love There's my life In store The journey's long Much longer than I reckoned In any throng I'll know her in a second Some lucky day I'm bound to find her And when I do I'll find love The journey's long Much longer than I reckoned In any throng I'll know her in a second Some lucky day I'm bound to find her And when I do I'll find love



There's A Flaw In My Flue

Jimmy Van Heusen / Johnny Burke
I used to sit by my fireplace And dream about you But now that won't do There's a flaw in my flue Your lovely face in my fireplace Was all that I saw But now it won't draw My flue has a flaw From every beautiful ember a memory arose Now I try to remember and smoke gets in my nose It's not as sweet as the unit-heat To dream about you So darling, adieu There's a flaw in my flue



Day In, Day Out

Rube Bloom / Johnny Mercer
Day in, day out The same old voodoo follows me about The same old pounding in my heart whenever I think of you And darling, I think of you, day in and day out Day out, day in I needn't tell you how my days begin When I awake I awake with a tingle, one possibility in view That possibility of maybe seeing you Come rain, come shine I meet you and to me the day is fine Then I kiss your lips and the pounding becomes The oceans roar, a thousand drums Can't you see it's love Can there be any doubt When there it is Day in, day out Come rain, come shine I meet you and to me the day is fine Then I kiss your lips and the pounding becomes The oceans roar, a thousand drums Can't you see it's love Can there be any doubt When there it is Day in, day out Then I kiss your lips and the pounding becomes The oceans roar, a thousand drums Can't you see it's love Can there be any doubt When there it is Day in, day out



I Couldn't Sleep A Wink Last Night

Harold Adamson / Jimmy McHugh
I couldn't sleep a wink last night Because we had that silly fight I thought my heart would break the whole night through I knew that you'd be sorry And I'm sorry too I didn't have my favorite dream The one in which I hold you tight I had to call you up this morning To see if everything was still all right Yes, I had to call you up this morning 'Cause I couldn't sleep a wink last night I didn't have my favorite dream The one in which I hold you tight I had to call you up this morning To see if everything was still all right Yes, I had to call you up this morning Cause I couldn't sleep a wink last night



Sentimental Journey

Bud Green / Les Brown, Ben Homer
Gonna take a sentimental journey Gonna set my heart at ease Gonna make a sentimental journey To renew old memories I got my bag, I got my reservation Spent each dime I could afford Like a child in wild anticipation I long to hear that: "All aboard!" Seven, that's the time we leave - at seven I'll be waiting up for heaven Counting every mile of railroad track - that moves me back I never though my heart could be so yearny Why did I decide to roam Gotta take a sentimental journey Sentimental journey home



Somewhere Along The Way

Jimmy Van Heusen / Sammy Gallop
I used to walk with you Along the avenue Our hearts were carefree and gay How could I know I'd lose you Somewhere along the way? The friends we used to know Would always smile "Hello" No love like our love they'd say Then love slipped through our fingers Somewhere along the way I should forget But with the loneliness of night I start remembering everything You're gone and yet There's still a feeling deep inside That you will always be part of me So now I look for you Along the avenue And as I wander I pray That some day soon I'll find you Somewhere along the way I should forget But with the loneliness of night I start remembering everything You're gone and yet There's still a feeling deep inside That you will always be part of me So now I look for you Along the avenue And as I wander I pray That some day soon I'll find you Somewhere along the way Somewhere along the way



When The World Was Young

Johnny Mercer / Philippe-Gerard
It isn't by chance I happen to be A boulevardier, the toast of Paris For over the noise, the talk and the smoke I'm good for a laugh, a drink or a joke I walk in a room, a party or ball "Come sit over here" somebody will call "A drink for M'sieur, a drink for us all!" But how many times I stop and recall Ah, the apple trees Blossoms in the breeze That we walked among Lying in the hay Games we used to play While the rounds were sung Only yesterday, when the world was young Wherever I go they mention my name And that in itself, is some sort of fame "Come by for a drink, we're having a game" Wherever I go I'm glad that I came The talk is quite gay, the company fine There's laughter and lights, and glamour and wine And beautiful girls and some of them mine But often my eyes see a different shine Ah, the apple trees Sunlit memories Where the hammock swung On our backs we'd lie Looking at the sky Till the stars were strung Only last July when the world was young Ah, the apple trees Blossoms in the breeze That we walked among Lying in the hay Games we used to play While the rounds were sung Only yesterday, when the world was young While sitting around, we often recall The laugh of the year, the night of them all The blonde who was so attractive that year Some opening night that made us all cheer Remember that time we all got so tight And Jacques and Antoine got into a fight The gendarmes who came, passed out like a light I laugh with the rest, it's all very bright



These Foolish Things

Eric Maschwitz / Jack Strachey / Harry Link
A cigarette that bears a lipstick's traces An airline ticket to romantic places And still my heart has wings These foolish things remind me of you A tinkling piano in the next apartment Those stumbling words that told you what my heart meant A fairground's painted swings These foolish things remind me of you You came, you saw, you conquered me When you did that to me I knew somehow this had to be The winds of March that make my heart a dancer A telephone that rings but who's to answer? Oh, how the ghost of you clings These foolish things remind me of you Let me tell you First daffodils and all excited cables And candlelights on little corner tables And still my heart has wings These foolish things Remind me of you The park at evening and scented roses And waiters whistling as the last bar closes The beauty that is spring springs How strange, how sweet, to find you still These things are dear to me They seem to bring you so near to me The sigh of midnight trains in empty stations Silk stockings thrown aside dance invitations Oh how the ghost of you clings These foolish things Remind me of you These foolish things Remind me of you



You Go To My Head

John Frederick Coots / Haven Gillespie
You go to my head and you linger like a haunting refrain And I find you spinning 'round in my brain Like the bubbles in a glass of champagne You go to my head like a sip of sparkling Burgundy brew And I find the very mention of you Like the kicker in a julep or two The thrill of the thought that you might give a thought to my plea Cast a spell over me Still I say to myself get a hold of yourself Can't you see that it never can be You go to my head with a smile that makes my temperature rise Like a summer with a thousand July's You intoxicate my soul with your eyes Though I'm certain that this heart of mine Hasn't a ghost of a chance in this crazy romance You go to my head You go to my head



Stardust

Mitchell Parish / Hoagy Carmichael
Why I spend my lonely nights Dreaming 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 Beside the garden wall, when stars were bright You are in my arms The nightingale told his fairytale Of paradise, where roses grew Though I dream in vain In my heart, it will always remain My stardust melody The memory of love's refrain



It's Funny To Everyone But Me

Jack Lawrence
It's funny how you loved me Then forgot so suddenly It's funny to everyone but me (It's the talk of the town) They told me this would happen Now they're laughing secretly It's funny to everyone but me (Gosh, he's crying again) I should shrug my shoulders and say Good riddance to a bad affair But how can I do, but my head tells me to When my heart tells me how much I care It's so funny, I still love you It's the joke of the century It's funny to everyone but me (I have the right to think of you) It's so funny, I still love you It's the joke of the century Ah, but it's funny to everyone but me



Why Was I Born?

Jerome Kern / Oscar Hammerstein II
Why was I born tell me why I am living What do I give or what am I'm giving What do I want anything I can not hope for What can I hope for I wish I knew Why do I try to draw you near me Honey tell me why do I cry Cause you're never gonna hear me I'm a poor fool But what can I do, I do Why was I born to love you Why do I try to draw you near me Honey tell me why do I cry Cause you're never gonna hear me I'm a poor fool But what can I do, I do Why was I born to love you
